The Devil’s prison house…the Adamic Life

The subject of this Blog is about the Devil’s Prisonhouse. It’s a subject that some people do not like to address. Other’s dodge it and some just don’t know about. In order to define the Devil’s Prisonhouse we must first define the Devil’s Nature and establish the truth of how the Devil’s Nature tries to keep a man bound and confined, even after he has accepted Christ as personal Lord and Saviour.

The Devil’s nature is the corrupt and enslaved will of man that is controlled by sin. The Devil’s Nature is the nature that every human being is born with since the curse of the Fall in the Garden of Eden. God’s curse fell over the Earth and humanity, as a result of the Original Sin. Adam fell in a mud puddle and the whole human family got dirty. The Bible says by the disobedience of Adam many are made sinners, but by the obedience of Christ shall many be made righteous. Plain and simple truth.

The Bible goes on to teach in Rom 5:21…That as sin hath reigned unto death. Sin reigns in humanity through the Devil’s Nature. This corrupt and enslaved nature rules the sinner when Christ is not in the picture. The mind, will, and character of a sinner is Godless and enslaved to sin.

After a man accepts Christ the Devil’s Nature no longer rules. Why? The believer is given a new nature. The Bible calls this new nature the Divine Nature. The Divine Nature is not the Devil’s Nature. The Divine Nature is the nature of Christ that a believer “partakes of” when personal forgiveness is found and Salvation by Grace comes into the human soul. The Divine Nature is ruled by the Spirit of Christ. The Divine Nature is a God given nature that has the power to do right. The Divine Nature is righteousness imputed to the human soul. It flows from Calvary. It rules the heart and life of a child of God.

So, where is the Devil’s Nature in the life of a Christian? Where did the Devil’s nature go? Never in the past life before Christ has the Devil’s Nature ever been disturbed, but now Christ came into the picture. The Devil’s Nature has been overcome by the Divine Nature. The Devil’s Nature still tries to retailate. The Devil’s nature now tries to “rule over the divine”. How does Christ feel about this? Christ says get thee behind me Satan. Christ has “all” authority. Christ says, “Move out of the way. I am God. I bought this believer with my own blood. He’s my ownership. This believer has the power to glorify me in his body and spirit”. Yes, dear reader the Divine Nature is greater than the Devil’s Nature. God said so, “Greater is He that is in you”. Glory!

Now, we can address the Devil’s Prisonhouse that still exists. The Devil’s Prisonhouse is the place where the Devils’s nature tries to tell the child of God, the saved, or the born again believer that it rules. This old man says, “The divine nature doesn’t have the power to make the child of God do right, you’re always going to have this struggle with the flesh”. The Devil’s prisonhouse is where the Devil freely comes into the intellect and thinking and tries to deceive a child of God into believing he’s always going to be a captive to the Devil’s Nature. Instead of believing what God said the Devil tries to trick, to brainwash, and to deceive saved people into believing what He says. People including Christian’s are sometimes bound in the Devil’s Prisonhouse and led to believe there is no means of escape or deliverance from this corrupt will and nature. WRONG! WRONG! WRONG! Where sin abounded…now Grace does “much more” abound. I like that language! Glory!

Christ provides a way for the child of God to “escape” the Devil’s Prisonhouse. You can be liberated! Yes, my Brother and Sister you can be liberated from the confines of the Devil’s Nature that constantly keeps telling you the flesh can have the best of you. You can break away from that struggle if you allow the power of Christ to mortify your flesh along with it’s awful deeds. The Devil wants you in his prison cell to be captive and yielded to Him. There was never a conflict with the old nature until Christ came in. Don’t let false teaching, tradition, or the opinions of men tell you you’re always going to be held in the confines of the Devil’s Prisonhouse. It’s not true! It’s not true! It’s not true! That’s just what the Devil wants! The Devil wants you at war with self. He want’s you to struggle with self. He want’s you to be defeated. The Devil want’s you to believe there is no escape and no deliverance from being tossed to and fro. The Devil wants you to be double minded. This is not peaceful living. Without victory over self. Being in prison to self is not peaceful. No contentment in the Devil’s Prisonhouse. This is misery…yet the Devil deceives people into believing this is a form of Christianity! That is the Devil’s Prisonhouse. That’s the struggle. That’s the conflict! Only Christ can liberate man from.

The Devil’s Prisonhouse is a place that drills into your thinking there is never a way out. It’s always going to be this way. The flesh and the Spirit at constant war. The flesh wins! The flesh is greater than Christ. I don’t care what the Bible says, it’s always going to be that way! WRONG! WRONG! WRONG!

I call you attention to these facts:

Jesus gives the sinner a way to be forgiven.

Jesus gives the believer a way to be liberated from the Devil’s Nature.

Jesus gives the believer a way to “escape” and “break away” from the Devils Prisonhouse.

Glory!

How?
First you have to be Justified.
Second you have to be sanctified…completely.

Justification is the new birth.
Sanctification (the baptism with the Holy Ghost and fire) is deliverance from the Devil’s Prisonhouse.

How do I get Justified? The New birth…removal of the “acts” of sin
How do get Sanctified? The baptism with the Holy Ghost and fire… removal of the Adamic Nature

Neither operation performed by God is progressive. Both acts are instantaneous and distinct acts proven in the Bible. Read it for yourselves. God can forgive, deliver, and liberate. Both operations have a distinct purpose. The new birth makes you eligible to be sanctified. Sanctification delivers you from the Devils Prisonhouse. Amen!

Plain and simple truth. Bible truth! It says in the Bible through the words of Christ the truth shall make you free. Read it. Live it! Freedom also includes freedom from the Devil’s Prisonhouse. The Devils nature can be destroyed. After the Devil’s Nature is destroyed you are no longer held captive in the Devil’s Prisonhouse.

Food for thought…
Jesus gives the sinner a way to be forgiven.
Jesus gives the believer a way to get rid of the Devil’s nature.
Jesus gives the believer a way to “escape” and “break away” from the Devils Prisonhouse.

Liberated completely! Freedom from the bondage of self. Glory to God! It’s a better life than being bound and and held captive to the Old Man! No more struggle with self. Flesh Crucified! Buried! Planted together with Christ. Raised in the newness of life. The Indwelling Spirit of God has His way. The total man under complete possession of the Indwelling Spirit. Walk in the newness of the Spirit not in oldness the flesh. Liberated and freed from the Adamic life…by the power of a resurrected Christ. Delivered completely! It’s a better life than being bound to the Old Man and the Old Man’s selfish ways.

Victory in Jesus…who takes away our struggles and delivers us from the bondage of the Devil’s Prisonhouse. He shall baptize with the Holy Ghost and fire…

    Like Paul and Silas we can walk out of our prisons and walk in freedom of life when the Lord opens those prison doors for us and He can – pride, anger, remorse, unforgiveness, sexual sins, drugs, alcohol, nicotine.. all the Saviour can free us from immediately and completely. Praise the Lrod. It will be real good if we get some testimonies attached to this blog so that those reading it will know for real.

    My father is 89 years old today. In his early thirties the Lord delivered him from epilepsy, nicotine, alscohol and gambling. Praise the Lord he has been free for more than 50 years! and testifies of it today… Nothing is impossible for He is the specialist of impossiblities.

    “Being in prison to self is not peaceful”–no wonder there are so many wars! When we, like St. Paul, become a slave to Christ Jesus, we walk in complete peace in the midst of the world’s turmoil.
