“Rebellion,” the Bible says, “is as the sin of witchcraft” (1 Samuel 15:23). The heart that harbors rebellion is an open channel for the entrance of evil powers, for it has not the protection of God’s blessing. The heart that cries “Jesus is Lord”, can be moved upon by the Spirit of God. The spirit of rebellion refuses to confess the lordship of Christ and will not submit to His rule. To heartily confess that “Jesus is Lord” is more than repeating a nice-sounding slogan. It is the difference between submission and rebellion – the difference between the power of the Holy Spirit ruling a life or the powers of evil moving in and taking over. And we should not console ourselves that there may be some relatively safe area in between.
