“Don’t Laugh When Your Kids Lie, Because By Doing So, You Are Allowing A Lying Spirit To Take Control,” warned Pastor David Oyedepo Jr.
Pastor David Oyedepo Jr., the resident pastor of Faith Tabernacle, Living Faith Church Worldwide, addressed the midweek communion service at Canaanland, Ota.
He discussed the lying spirit throughout his sermon while reading from 1 Kings 22:22–23. Therefore, there is what the Bible calls a lying spirit. Men are easily influenced to lie by a lying spirit. When someone is acting in accordance with this spirit, he doesn’t strain to tell lies. Every situation and every small thing has a remedy. There is a spirit at work; there is a spirit-related activity that facilitates manipulation for such a person.
He said, “When we discuss the topic of sanctification, it is a complex subject for which we need to carefully consider ourselves.” One of the enemy’s tactics, as we can see in this instance, is to get people to lie on a variety of levels, including in their words, actions, and thoughts. As stated in the Bible, the devil is the father of all liars, and lying is one of his primary characteristics. He started out by lying. So, if you’re going to separate yourself from him, you also have to separate yourself from lying.
He ended by saying, “Because of this, everyone of us must constantly assess ourselves and make sure the adversary has no place to hide.” If your youngster says anything that isn’t true, don’t tolerate it and deal with it right away. Avoid laughing about it since doing so will allow the lying spirit to stay where it is. The adversary is always trying to harm someone’s destiny. So we need to be vigilant against him. Avoid letting him use any of these factors to enter your family or your daily life.
