KILL THEM WEEDS

August 21, 2021

                                      

Recently, I was engaged in doing some lawn care, specifically, pulling out weeds, and in so doing, it gave me the topic for this weeks’ blog, “KILL THEM WEEDS.” Also, handling the weeds made me compare them to demonic spirits, which made me recall the instructions God gave Israel before they went into the Promise Land.

First, God spoke to Moses and told him about the fruitful land that Israel would inherit. Then He said that Israel was to drive out by utterly destroying all the inhabitants, comprised of seven nations greater and mightier than them (Exodus 3:17; 23:23-24; 34:10-17; Deuteronomy 7:1-5). Furthermore, God told him that if Israel failed to follow his instructions, these nations would become a snare to them, yielding undesirable results (Numbers 33: 50-53, 55).

Years after Israel was in the Promise Land and prior to the death of Joshua God, told him to warn Israel that mingling with the seven nations would be detrimental to their existence (Joshua 23:9-13). Unfortunately, the scriptures revealed Israel’s failure and disobedience to God’s instruction. They left remnants of these nations in the land and eventually suffered consequences for their actions (Judges1:19-36; Judges 2:1-3).

Just as allowing weeds to grow freely causes unwanted damage, much more unrestrained demons cause havoc in people’s lives. To help you understand what I am saying, let me share some pertinent information on weeds and demons:

  • There are all kinds of weeds, and there are all kinds of demons.
  • Weeds can be perennial, biennial, or annual. Demonic spirits can take residence in people’s lives over a varied time frame, and some linger longer than others.
  • Weeds germinate, develop and propagate rapidly. Once a demon gains entrance and settles in, they invite other demons to join them (Matthew 12:43-45).
  • Some people characterize weeds as the bully of the plant world. Demons seek to intimidate and dominate people’s lives (Matthew 8:28).
  • You will find various weeds grow geographically. Demons are assigned not only to people but also places (Ephesians 6:12).
  • Weeds will grow anywhere and migrate in different directions. Demons are everywhere, and they will take you in whatever direction necessary to accomplish their goal (Luke 8:31-32).
  • When you pull out weeds, new weeds will grow up in that exact spot. The believer must engage in daily warfare, for the enemy will attempt to re-enter if given the opportunity.
  • If there is a crack in your pavement, a weed will begin to grow there. Entertaining sinful thoughts can crack open the door for demonic activity.
  • Some weeds have thistles on them, and to pull them out, gloves are needed. Some demons seek to hurt you as they are exorcised (Mark 1:26; 9:18-26).
  • Some weeds can travel up a fence and cause the fence to be damaged as their vine thickens. Stop demonic activity from destroying those they encounter and enlarging their territory.
  • Weeds can hinder the proper growth of needed vegetation. Demons hinder the plans God has for our lives
  • Some weeds cause allergies, others are poisonous, and others can cause blisters. According to their classification, demonic spirits can cause infirmities.
  • Some weeds have become resistant to weed killer. Sometimes, that which was once effective in expelling a demon no longer works (Mark 9:28-29)

I hope that as you conclude reading this blog, you see the correlation I’ve made between weeds and demons, and as you kill them weeds, you will aggressively and systematically destroy them demons.
