Access Denied!
By
Calvin J. Moss


The Amplified bible in Ephesians 4:27 says neither give place to the devil… give no opportunity to him.

When a hacker tries to break into a computer or a thief into a computerized safe lock and is unsuccessful the system usually reads: “access denied”. One thing the devil would love to do is gain a foothold into our lives. We must be vigilant because the enemy is looking to get in on us. When he tries to get in, we must tell him access denied!

So far, I have learned that if the devil cannot get you to fall directly for a sin that you had a problem with in the past, he will try to introduce that same sin in a different way. For example if you had a challenge with pornography he will get someone to send you emails with pornographic pictures attached. Perhaps a peddler will try to sell you x-rated movies. In addition, he will use those people closest to you.

The enemy works this way with all strongholds and is looking to break the lock so tell him access denied! If the devil cannot get you one way, he will look to create another set of strongholds. He never gives up. The adversary will dig deep into you past and try to stir something up. Often times, the enemy seeks to catch you off guard. He is cunning and sneaky. My brothers and sisters the devil is smart, he`s been around for a long time. That is the reason why we are to “be sober, be vigilant; because the adversary the devil, as a roaring lion walketh about seeking whom he may devour (1 Peter 5:8).

I believe that the more we know about the devil, the stronger we become in Christ because we are aware of his tactics. I`m not saying that we cannot fall because man is infallible: God is able to keep us from falling. If we study our enemy we can defeat our enemy through Christ. After all, satan has studied us from our childhood until now that is how he knows what to tempt us with. That is why when we were in the world wrapped in bondage satan instituted an open door policy into our lives that gave him access 24-7. In Christ, that policy has been made null and void and his access is denied when we put on the Lord Jesus Christ.

Although satan is called the god of this world, he really is no god at all. He is a fallen angel who lost his beauty, power, position, and is mutated down to a devil. The enemy is upset because he lost his position and cannot get it back. So now he is looking to gain access into our lives by trying to get us to lose our position in Christ.

I write not to give the devil glory but to glorify the God of salvation and to impart some spiritual enlightenment that we stay saved.

Now let us watch our lives as eagles watch their prey
Let us continue in righteousness so we do not stray
The Lord is our strength it is him who we magnify
Boldly tell satan access denied!

When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him (Isaiah 59:19). Amen.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

I really enjoyed your article. All in all, you were right on the money. There is one area that needs changing. Near the bottom where you talk about writing this so we "Stay Saved" To me, this suggests that we can lose our salvation. Scripture is pretty clear on this. Nothing can take away the love of God. Not even death. I believe this is covered in Romans. I think you need to rewrite this part of your article. I do not subscribe to the private messenger service.
