“One who isolates himself pursues selfish desires; he rebels against all sound judgment…An unfriendly man pursues selfishness, and defies all sound judgment” (PV 18:1)
I just heard this sad story on the TV. A pilot deliberately crashed himself and the plane, killing more than 150 passengers. He was a young man of 27, training to become a professional pilot. Flying in the air he waited for his boss, the senior pilot, to go out of the cabin, possibly to the rest room. Then he locked himself in the cockpit and reprogrammed the plane to crash. His boss came back after few minutes and he was heard banging at the door to enter. But the co-pilot locked himself in and no one could open the door. They said he was suffering from depression but he hid his medical report from the airline company, for fear that he may be fired. He killed himself and all the passengers. So, so sad…
Spiritually speaking this was an attack from an evil spirit. The demon manifested itself as fear, depression, loneliness, isolation, selfishness, wickedness and rebellion. It finally manifested itself as a suicide evil spirit. This young man destroyed himself and all others because he gave the demon control over his mind and spirit. Our Lord said that the devil comes only to ‘kill, steal and destroy’ (Jn 10:10). Rebellion is as sinful as witchcraft (1Sam 15:23). Alone in the cockpit, ignoring the knock at the door and the pleading of his boss to let him in, ignoring the screams of the passengers, he crashed the plane into the mountains. The doctors try now to find a solution for this madness. But the problem is more spiritual than medical. Here we see how the demon deceived him and the Airline staff. They all said he looked healthy and that he passed all the medical tests. They said that ‘flying was his hobby and he was happiest when in the air’.
As you can see, selfish isolation from the Body of Christ and unfriendliness are sinful. These are some serious questions for us all…are you under attack from evil spirits of fear, confusion, loneliness, depression? Do you have a tendency to isolate yourself from people? Are you unfriendly? Do you dislike or hate your boss, your pastor, your teacher, your elders or your parents? Do you dream or imagine death, suicide or horror scenes? Did you go to any shrine to partake from native medicines? Do false prophets prophesied negative things to you?
Then pray and ask God Almighty for help, in the name of Jesus! It is not too late! Do not be ashamed or afraid to pray! There is salvation, healing and deliverance in the name of Jesus! There is hope, peace and joy in the name of Jesus! Do not ‘die in silence’! Pray!!! Resist and rebuke the devil, in the name of Jesus! He will flee from you! And God will answer you in your time of need!
Hear me, in Christ, there is hope, my friend!
