Virtuously Vile – freedom from a religious spirit

“And I will be yet more vile than this . . .” 2 Samuel 6:22 ASV

Virtuously Vile
“Vile” has interesting connotations. It is not a word a person would aspire to become. If one was “vile” they would not want to become “more vile”.

Yet, these are the words spoken by none other than King David. They would be going to be words that would seem to be honored by God. They are part of the many reasons God chose him to lead Israel and ultimately be the lineage of Jesus Christ.

The Counter
These words were spoken to counter an accusation. At the time, David was participating in leading the ark of God back to its rightful place. He was dancing and praising God. His wife, Michal (daughter of King Saul), was mocking the manner in which David was participating in the event.

The Religious Spirit
Michal’s answer is part of what we are going to designate a religious spirit. To my knowledge, the term “religious spirit” is not used in the Bible. Yet, we see manifestations of people being religious in the Bible. A loose definition of being religious is when someone attempts have a flesh-religion instead of a relationship-religion. Their relationship with God is based on what it looks like on the outside.

It Is Dangerous
This manifestation of the religious spirit, as seen in the interaction of David and Michal, had devastating effects. She was more focused on what David looked like than she was that the presence of God was returning. This private manifesting of a religious spirit had a public manifestation of barrenness. She never had another child (2 Samuel 6:23).

This Sunday we are going to dig deeper into this story. There are several symptoms of a religious spirit. There are also cures. God does not want the church to be barren. By the power of the Holy Spirit, we are going to take authority over religious spirits that cause barrenness in order that we walk in the fruitfulness He intends us to walk in.

“not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near.” Hebrews 10:25 NASB
The more times you come to church the more you are benefited. 

We are encouraging you to come to church this summer. Every time you come to church (Sunday & Wednesday) you will receive a ticket. KEEP THE TICKET. On Sunday, September 2 at 6PM we will have a block party. At one point during the block party, we will have a drawing. Someone will win two cruise passes (certain limitations apply).

We love you. Looking forward to seeing you at Evangel North Church Sunday 9 AM & 11 AM, and Wednesday 7 PM.

Also new service: Saturdays 6PM, at Evangel World Prayer Center (6900 Billtown Road).

Here is an interesting article on tithing in the New Testament.
