Jeremiah 16 & 18,
Satan enslaves people with ignorance, fear and idolatry. These are his three fundamental ways of governance over people. Ignorance ceases the mind and takes it captive, that is where it fundamentally locks the person down, in the mind. The scriptures talk about the mind being darkened. It’s ignorance that it refers to there. Ignorance doesn’t mean lack of knowledge, it means ‘protection’ from truth. That’s what the scripture means when it talks about people saying, “peace, peace, when there is no peace.” Satan uses the five senses to supply people with a kind of light(knowledge), which the scripture calls darkness. “But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness!” (Matthew 6:23 NKJV)
Ignorance is very effective in the hands of satan for some reasons; chief among them is the deception-made-real nature it has, which makes what the five senses perceive, seem ‘very real’ to people. Even most of you reading this right now, the things you consider real are the things your five senses perceive; what you see, touch, hear, smell and taste. I don’t mean to insult you, but if what I just said is true about you, you are under satan’s governance through ignorance. You need to realise, that, “By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.” (Hebrews 11:3 NKJV), “…we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.” (II Corinthians 4:18 NKJV)
In simple English, the above scriptures are saying this; everything(both things and situations) that can be perceived by the five senses, are mere temporary, for the moment ‘form’ of the word of God, which will fade away for the next ‘form’ of that same word, in other that each circumstance will experience the integrity of God’s word, and have a proof that God does not lie, and is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. For example, let’s say you earn a thousand dollars per month at the moment, from a job you got by God’s intervention, and the pay is abundantly sufficient for you, it means you can say “my God supplies all my needs.”
Suddenly, things change, your needs get bigger, and your huge paycheck becomes not so huge after all. At this point, if you look upon your paycheck, and judge the possibility of meeting your current needs based on that, then that’s ignorance at work in you. You are looking at ‘things’ instead of looking at what created them. ‘Things’ don’t give birth to things, words give birth to things. In this case, you need to realise that, the same word that “supplies all your needs” yesterday, is the same today too. If you are born again, then the way to escape ignorance is through meditation on the word of God. We will talk about fear and idolatry subsequently, and then we will see how to break people out of that prison, and get them back into Eden, or how to tear the veil and give them access again into their spirit.
