Spirit of Religion

Bookmark and Share

The Pharisees Spirit is a Spirit of Religion.

It is among us every day.

It is one of Satan's most cunning lies.

It is heavy.

It is confusing.

It steals our joy.

It smothers our childlike faith.

It silences the Holy Spirit.

It fills us with doubt.

It paralyzes us with fear.

It chokes us with unbelief.

It causes us to be prideful.

It causes us to grow cold to the things of God.

It will stunt our spiritual growth.

It disguises itself as the truth.

It boast of rules, opinions, differences, exclusions, and division among God's people.

It raises an eyebrow.

It is suspicious.

It will keep us from being an example of the gospel in the eyes of the unbeliever.

Most unbeliever's can identify this spirit immediately.

The spirit of religion has caused a lie to be the truth in the eyes of that believer.

The spirit of religion is a deadly foe to those who don't know the Word of God.

Only the pure Word of God has the power to defeat this spirit.

Only those who rightly divide the Word of God can overcome the lure of this evil spirit.

In order to stay free from this evil spirit, Christians must humble themselves, pray, get alone with God, PRACTICE LOVE, and read their Bible through the lens of childlike faith - not through the lens of religious dogma or denominational doctrine that hinders the WORLDWIDE "Body of Christ" from loving one another, respecting one another, and learning from one another.

Want to be free indeed?

Shake loose form the Spirit of Religion NOW.

Tell the enemy you will not accept his lies any more.

Remember, this spirit will attach itself to Christians at various times to try and put a damper on our faith.

It seeks to thwart the Body of Christ from advancing the Kingdom.

We need to help one another, love one another, and pray for one another to keep ourselves free from the evil lure of prideful religion that seeks to cause strife among the body.


Luke 11:42-51 AMP

42 “But woe (judgment is coming) to you Pharisees, because you [self-righteously] tithe mint and rue and every [little] garden herb [tending to all the minutiae], and yet disregard and neglect justice and the love of God; but these are the things you should have done, without neglecting the others.

43 Woe to you Pharisees, because you love the [c]best seats in the synagogues and to be respectfully greeted in the market places.

44 Woe to you! For you are like graves which are unmarked, and people walk over them without being aware of it [and are ceremonially unclean].”

45 One of the lawyers [an expert in the Mosaic Law] answered Him, “Teacher, by saying this, You insult us too!”

46 But He said, “Woe to you lawyers as well, because you weigh men down with burdens [man-made rules, unreasonable requirements] which are hard to bear, and you yourselves will not even touch the burdens with one of your fingers [to lighten the load].

47 Woe to you! For you repair or build tombs for the prophets, and it was your fathers who killed them.

48 So you are witnesses and approve the deeds of your fathers, because they [actually] killed them, and you repair or build their tombs.

49 For this reason also the wisdom of God said [in the Scriptures], ‘I will send them prophets and apostles, some of whom they will put to death and some they will persecute,

50 so that charges may be brought against this generation [holding them responsible] for the blood of all the prophets shed since the foundation of the world,

51 from the blood of Abel to the blood of Zechariah [the priest], who was murdered between the altar and the house of God. Yes, I tell you, charges will be brought against this generation.’

A Woman Sees the Risen Lord

"Now when the Sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices, that they might come and anoint Him. Very early in the morning, on the first day of the week, they came to the tomb when the sun had risen. And they said among themselves, “Who will roll away the stone from the door of the tomb for us?” But when they looked up, they saw that the stone had been rolled away—for it was very large. And entering the tomb, they saw a young man clothed in a long white robe sitting on the right side; and they were alarmed.

But he said to them, “Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He is risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid Him. But go, tell His disciples—and Peter—that He is going before you into Galilee; there you will see Him, as He said to you.”

So they went out quickly and fled from the tomb, for they trembled and were amazed. And they said nothing to anyone, for they were afraid.

Now when He rose early on the first day of the week, He appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom He had cast seven demons. She went and told those who had been with Him, as they mourned and wept. And when they heard that He was alive and had been seen by her, they did not believe."

- Mark 16:1-11 NKJV
