Èsù, the Master Dialectician (3)

3)            Go into spiritual business with Lucifer and demonic bodacity takes over your heart. Satan knows how to blind your heart so much so that even the Almighty God will mean absolutely nothing to you. You are dead; dead beyond redemption is what the deceitfulness of the evil dialectician creates for you.

                The dialectician was at his wonted innuendo self at Jesus’ wilderness experience of Luke 4:2-12. Choosing the most appropriate time of his attack: for the Devil knew fully well of the Lord’s empty stomach’s state, “And the devil said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, command this stone that it be made bread” (Luke 4:3). Lucifer is unbelievably cheeky to even think of encountering the LORD of Sabbath with this temptation. And finding Himself in the fashion of Adamic habiliment: “And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.”  Known for his perverse nature he took another dialectic shot, “And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine.”

                Satan’s inexorability will make him come over and over until his cruel intentions are satisfied. Thank God for His word that is able to thwart satanic goals. “And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.” Being impervious of shame the Bible records: “And he brought him to Jerusalem, and set him on a pinnacle of the temple, and said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down from hence: For it is written, He shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee: And in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.” How could Satan have dragged Jesus from the wilderness to the Temple’s pinnacle? Very simple; his dialectical mastery made him paint the flagitious picture, spreading the image of his deception before Jesus – right there, in the wilderness. For every temptation there is a scriptural solution, “And Jesus answering said unto him, It is said, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.” Èsù, the master dialectician failed. Employ the word of God and the enemy’s stratagem comes to nought.

                The strength of the dialecticism of Èsù turns unwary hearts into stones of inexorability. King Saul was dribbled to the point of forgetting that the Jewish throne is the LORD’s doing. Desiring his son, Jonathan, to succeed him, David must be hunted and hacked to death.

                Just beware of this enemy and do everything scripturally possible to keep yourself away from the sway of Èsù, the dialectician. You cannot be too wise for him, as long as he is able to make you drop your spiritual guard. After all the dramatic afflictions, Solomon would wish they were all dreams. Under the persuasive goading of the master dialectician, Solomon married several poisonous wives. This is God’s instructive warning to Israel, 14) “For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God: 15) Lest thou make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land, and they go a whoring after their gods, and do sacrifice unto their gods, and one call thee, and thou eat of his sacrifice; 16) And thou take of their daughters unto thy sons, and their daughters go a whoring after their gods, and make thy sons go a whoring after their gods” (Exodus 34:14-16).

                Deuteronomy 7:3-4 3) “Neither shalt thou make marriages with them; thy daughter thou shalt not give unto his son, nor his daughter shalt thou take unto thy son. 4) For they will turn away thy son from following me, that they may serve other gods: so will the anger of the LORD be kindled against you, and destroy thee suddenly.” From the flow of Solomonic ink comes Proverbs 22:14 “The mouth of strange women is a deep pit: he that is abhorred of the LORD shall fall therein.” The words ‘strange women’ is zûr (zoor): ‘to be strange, be a stranger; an enemy; loathsome (of breath); prostitute, to be a foreigner, profane; to commit adultery.’ Solomon, forgetting the words of Exodus 34:14-16 and Deuteronomy 7:3-4, he married many strange ones which led to: “But king Solomon loved many strange women… Of the nations concerning which the LORD said unto the children of Israel, Ye shall not go in to them, neither shall they come in unto you:…and his wives turned away his heart…and his heart was not perfect with the LORD his God, as was the heart of David his father. 5) For Solomon went after Ashtoreth the goddess of the Zidonians, and after Milcom the abomination of the Ammonites” (1Kings 11:1-5).

                The enemy’s dialecticism is often aphrodisiac. The king was shown the beauty of Bathsheba and the dialectician’s words, mesmerizing amatorial indiscipline, brought David to his knees. The deceitful mastery of his persuasive words gain conquest just because we forget the instructions of the LORD God.

                In John 13:27 it says of Judas “And after the sop Satan entered into him.” The word ‘entered,’ eiserchomai (eis-er’-cho-mai), in this context is: ‘come into one’s mind; it comes into one’s head that’. The same Satan that prevailed on Judas to purloin from the ministry of Jesus Christ, entered into his head that he decided to betray his master.

                In the tragic story of Ananias and Sapphira, his wife, Apostle Peter asked him, “Why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land?” the word ‘filled’ is pleroo (plee-ro’-ō) meaning: ‘to fully, completely fill.’ Pleroo signifies ‘strongly instigate, excite, impel.’ Lucifer, through his dialecticism, had given Ananias so much courage to represent the Devil in that impudent and audacious manner. The truth is, like Ananias, we allow the Devil to fill our hearts to the brim of bodacious acts.

                Get Jesus initiated by getting born again: pray this prayer, believing it with all your heart. Say,
