06LHCD7-6 - Geri McGhee - THE SPIRIT OF CONTROL - Donation $4.00 - Some of us control and some of us allow ourselves to be controlled. If it is negative and demonic control, it is as the sin of witchcraft. Parents and Godly authority figures on the other hand need to teach Godly discipline. Children that are properly disciplined feel loved and secure. Undisciplined children can become bipolar and rebellious. God's kingdom works under authority. A spirit of control will oppress, encumber, dishearten and enslave. A controlled person feels victimized. In Ps 72:4, God says "He will break in pieces the oppressor." Oppressive controlling spirits want power and they will advance in any way they can. God wants us to be under the direction of the Holy Spirit. Our freedom in the Holy Spirit can be hindered if we come under the control of someone else's will. The Harry Potter movies are all about the teaching of witchcraft and controlling others to do your will. There are many people who are not witches who are practicing witchcraft by trying to manipulate and control others or by praying towards that end. The listener will be challenged to ask themselves the question, "Am I a controller?" or "Am I being controlled?"
