TEXT: (Mark 12:17).
This is the question every human from every generation tries to answer. Lack of the knowledge of the Answers to these questions has caused many to make a devastating mistake in
their live. Devil know we have difficulties answering this questions, this is why he has employed it as a useful tool to use in leading humanity astray. A question was thrown to Jesus after He told the parable of the tenant; in reply, He said we should give to Caesar what is Caesars. Devil has used this
answer to rob so many of their salvation; especially in African society.
Most African families has idolatrous background; so when a member of that families tries to pull out from such thing, is as if the covenant of the ancestor with that idol follows the person around. In a bid to get delivered, many falls in to the hands of falls prophets who yokes them more by telling them to perform one sacrifice or the other in the river or to the idol itself. You can’t defeat satan by possessing satan; by so doing, many entangles themselves the more.
When Jesus answered the question the Pharisees asked Him; He meant to tell them that man belong to God and is created to serve God, and not to serve the prince of the world which is Satan. Caesar as of the time Jesus made the statement is the ruler of the world, so figuratively, Jesus is referring to Satan. What Christ mean to say is that we don’t belong to the world nor satan, because we are not made by the image of Satan nor anything from the world; rather, we are made by the image and likeness of God. So, since we are of the image and likeness of God, we have to give ourselves to God ( see Gen. 1:26). Bible made it clear that we are in the world but we are not of it ( see John 17:16), this is why we are instructed to love not the world nor anything from the world but to hand all of them back to Caesar who is the owner (see 1John 2:15-16).
We have to understand that we are from God and made to serve Him alone. To help us do this, God gave us the Holy Spirit who will reveal the mind of God to us. All we need is to welcome Him into our live by giving Him time everyday of our live, at least one hour. It must be specific and a convenient time, where we won’t tolerate any distraction; there, allow Him to teach you things you need to know. It is the duty of the Holy Spirit to help and deliver us from every entanglement, both the one we brought to ourselves and the ones we inherited. It is only the truth that will set us free (see John 8:32), and the Holy Spirit is the only one that can reveal the truth to us, because He is the Spirit of Truth ( see John 16:13).
