DAY 11: No Man’s Land
Most people think of “No-man’s Land” as a place where no one wants to live. The term usually describes an area of uninhabited land of an indefinite or uncertain character. Nobody wants to stay there, including demons. Now keep in mind that this is not an in-depth study, however, it will cover some very practical points you should know about the enemy and his tactics.
Demons will always return to see if you have changed your mind.
Jesus explained it this way: “When an unclean spirit goes out of a man, he goes through dry places, seeking rest, and finds none. Then he says, “I will return to my house from which I came.” And when he comes, he finds it empty, swept, and put in order. Then he goes and takes with him seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter and dwell there; and the last state of that man is worse than the first.” (Matthew 12:43-45 NKJV)
The unclean spirit (or demon) came back to the house (person) to see if he had changed his mind. The demon noticed three things about the house.
It was swept…well, that’s certainly good—all the bad was gone.
It was put in order…that’s also good—everything was organized and tidy.
It was empty…there was the problem. That one word explains why there was room for the other demons. This individual had left his house vacant. It should have been full of the Holy Spirit, but he had never allowed Jesus to move in and be his Lord.
Unfortunately, this person still had the doormat out that read, “Welcome Demons!” The doormat should have read, “HOLY SPIRIT LIVES HERE!” The demons would have continued roaming No-man’s Land instead of moving in and wreaking havoc. Friend, be sure you know what mat is outside your door.
