Ephesians 2:2-3 (KJV) Not To Be Trusted
Ephesians 2:2-3 (KJV) Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.
Paul, Jew by birth, writing to a church made up of both Jews and Gentiles, said we all had our conversation among the children of disobedience and under the influence of the spirit of the prince of the power of the air.
It is foolish of any of us to believe that an unsaved person is influenced by anything but that spirit.
People we love
Politicians we vote for
Personalities who are popular
Every one of them, if they are not washed through the blood of Christ, are children of disobedience and behave the way the prince of the power of the air leads them. They are not to be trusted.
Even believers wrestle with their old nature and sometimes fall in defeat. For the children of disobedience, there is no choice but to fall. Their character is always subject to that spirit of the devil.
