Do God's Work and all Your Needs will be Met
Skandalon - Satan's Trap- Larry Ollison Ministries EmptyFri May 23, 2014 12:22 am by Camille
God always provides for our needs according to His riches in glory through Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:19

As long as we are doing the work of the Lord God will always meet our needs. As long as we are pointing others to God, He will always see that you have plenty.

Do the work of the Lord share what you know from the bible and share your testimony of how you were healed or set free and God …

Skandalon - Satan's Trap



The natives placed a cage in the jungle containing a bait stick that the monkeys desperately wanted. As the monkeys approached the cage, they saw the bait inside and reached through the bars of the cage to grab it. However, as long as their fists were gripped around the bait stick, they could not pull their hands out of the cage. Although the animals could have been set free from the trap, they desired the bait so badly, they refused to let go of the stick, making their seizure effortless for the locals.









When the natives approached with their clubs, the monkeys began jumping up and down and violently squealing, still unwilling to release the bait. They could have been set free at any time by simply letting go of the bait stick and pulling their hands from the cage, but they wouldn't. The closer the natives came to the animals, the more fierce their shrieking became. Fully aware that death was imminent, they stubbornly refused to loose the counterfeit treasure. The predators simply approached their target and clubbed them to death. The monkeys literally held life and death within their grasp.








That is a perfect illustration of what happens to someone who takes hold of offense. Whether you realize it or not, offense is Satan's bait stick that allows him to destroy your life. As long as you are determined to cling to the offense, your freedom will escape you in the same way it escaped the monkeys. While you desperately cling to the bait, the devil effortlessly moves in with death and destruction.








What is it that offends you? Is it as simple as somebody's breathing or the way they snort? Or is it what others say about you? Perhaps someone won't allow you to do what you want. Or possibly you're offended by something that was done to you as a child. Once the devil knows what offends you, he will continually send that particular thing into your life, hoping to lure you into his trap.








Sometimes harboring offense can feel good to your flesh because you are looking for the opportunity to get revenge. You know that you are seeking revenge when you mentally plot and scheme to get back at someone who has offended you. No longer seeking retribution is evidence that you have let go of offense.








However, as long as you cling to offense-like the monkeys held on to the bait stick-you can scream, you can jump up and down, you can even pray, but you will be snared by the devil's trap nonetheless. Even though offense and thoughts of revenge may feel good for a while, they will soon bring ruin into your life.








All that was necessary for the monkeys to be set free was for them to let go of the bait. The only real thing that hindered them from freedom was their own intense desire. James 1:14 says, "Each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed." In reality, the only thing that stood between complete freedom and ruin was the monkey's strong desire for the bait. A simple decision to let go brings life. In the exact same way, anyone willing to make the decision to release offense can live in complete freedom.

Oh dear Lord , a pretty stark explanation of offence , and i will put that into my thinking , . I try not to take offence , and think its a daily battle , some have learned it sooner than others , being on Y!A it is a struggle to focus on the Lords message of Love , and not be offended ., which is as you say , the bait of the devil , thanks for the pointer Cami .
Love in Christ , Angie
