Anchored Scriptures: Romans 15:4, Revelation 3:1, Mark 5:1-9
Ministering: Dr. D. K. Olukoya (G.O MFM Worldwide)
There are many people walking on our streets but as far as heaven is concerned, they are corpses on the streets.
The city of Gadara was very popular not because of any economic value, not because they had an entertainment spot, not because they had a good market. The city of Gadara was very popular because there was a mad man in that city called “The mad man of Gadara”.
The city of Gadara had a mad man. There was a mad man on the loose. Children must be locked up. People warn their wives not to move carelessly about. As far as he was alive, nothing was safe.
Men even had to get themselves ready to run. Women and children were not safe. Roads too were unsafe. The mad man of Gadara was ever ready to destroy.
Sometimes they got a city committe together on how to control the man. “Let us use the hardest chain, fetters or stone”. But he broke them off like pieces of paper. Then he cut himself with stones. The man dwelt in the tomb.
His hair was melted together. His face was unshaven. He was foaming and frothing at the mouth. Blood was flowing from his self inflicted wounds. The clanging of chains could be heard any time he was moving.
He did not wear any clothes. He did not live in a house, but dwelt in a tomb. The stench and smell of dry pus in his body and vomit was unbearable. The mad man of Gadara.
He would come at people screaming and crying like a wild animal. Who was this man? We do not know who he was but we do know that he was somebody. Undoubtedly, he was somebody’s family.
He was probably somebody’s husband. He was probably somebody’s daddy. But see what the enemy converted his life to.
===> I am praying for somebody and anybody listening to me too, I will pray this prayer which you should shout a 10-fold Amen to:
Every destiny converter assigned to the life of anyone here, die, in the name of Jesus!
When somebody is a tomb dweller, the first characteristic is:
(ii) Rottenness – Dry bones of burial ground and the smell of burial ground.
It is like that life has been concluded by the enemy. So when you as a believer are dwelling in spiritual darkness, you are a tomb dweller. However a modern day tomb dweller.
The rottenness in the place and the barbaric attitude are signs of tomb dwelling. All the barbaric and crude sinners, those whose minds have been polluted by pornography and masturbation; absolute rottenness are tomb dwellers.
I am officially telling you now so that you know and pray yourself out of it. Technically, a tomb dweller is finished unless by divine intervention.
When a person is caged by demonic influences in this age where people are seeking for deliverance. Some people are actually proud that they are slaves to Satan.
When everybody is seeking for deliverance now, some men are still proud that women are running after them. Some women are still proud that they are attracting male attention.
In these modern days when people are seeking for how to get better for God, you are still saying you have ten buildings inside the water and yet you are hungry here. You are bold enough to enslave your own mind.
You call yourself a witch and you are killing off your profitable children who will bury you when you die. You are proud to agree with your enemies. This is a very serious matter.
They think they are enjoying life but they are tomb dwellers.
Let me tell you one secret:
Until you hate the devil, the devil will not hate you.
The ministry of the devil is to make people like swines, like prodigal sons.
It is to make people hopeless. To make people believe that they have reached a cross road.
When you understand the intention and activity of the enemy, you know what he wants to convert you, and you know how the enemy operates, you know his plan against you, that he is planning to make you a tomb dweller, you will react with violence and anger.
The only language the enemy understands is violence. The only thing the enemy respects is power.
Who is a modern day tomb dweller? That is where we are going now. That man from the Bible looks very crude, but the Bible is trying to teach us something, that there is another counterpart of that man dwelling in the tomb.
Who is a modern day tomb dweller?
▪︎ Those who do unnatural things to themselves.
▪︎ Those who get on the streets and dress naked.
▪︎ Those who will buy clothes and turn it to rag themselves.
▪︎ Those whose lives do not stay in the light; they stay in darkness.
▪︎ Those who practice self destruction. They are systematically destroying themselves.
When the enemy is trying to kill you, he will try and make you bear grudges and malice against people and you are putting a knife on your own throat.
▪︎ Modern day tomb dwellers are uncontrollable. They do not listen to pastors, prophets, elders or anybody. They think they are wise. They think because they are in first or second year in the university that they know everything.
▪︎ They suffer with depression and sadness.
Although I studied Microbiology, there is a pandemic now. But the greatest problem of man is not bacteria and viruses, it is invasion by evil spirits.
It is a tragedy of our world that the best selling drugs are antidepressant drugs. Drugs that calm people’s head down, like valium, lexotan, and so on. They do not cure any sickness, they just keep the depression down.
Nakedness is a sign of living in the tomb. Now ladies are wearing less and less and less for the men to see more and more and more.
===> Brothers that are here, may you not marry mad wives in the name of Jesus. Sisters too, may you not marry mad husbands in the name of Jesus.
A person is doing surgery to expand the buttocks, breast, lips; It is madness. It is the dwellers in the tomb that are telling God that He has made a mistake, that they want what is bigger.
All these things do backfire. I have received letters from those who went and did breast enlargement, buttock enlargement, then the surgery turned haywire.
They now begin to write letters to the GO of MFM looking for prayer points and my answer is very simple: “I do not have those kinds of prayer points. If you say God is wrong, there is no prayer point that can help you.”
The culture we have now is vaccinated with death, killings and blood. There is the rise of the vampire spirits. Human life is being devalued. People are confronting tomb dwellers.
Somebody has said, “our world is fast becoming a madhouse and the patients are the ones running the hospital/asylum. It is the patients who are writing the prescriptions. The students are threatening to run the schools”, whereas it is a tragedy.
This man was living among tombs. The devil likes to keep people in tombs like that, not necessarily physically dead, but he loves people to hang out with those who are spiritually dead.
He wants the spiritually dead; the unbelievers to influence you. He wants them to drag you down.
Somebody did a small experiment. He took a little boy and handcuffed him to a dead man. Then they gave instructions to the little boy, “lift your hand and praise God”, but he could not, because his hand is tied to the dead.
Again, “young boy, get your Bible and read Genesis 1” but he cannot, because his hand is handcuffed to the dead. He is told to come to the church but he cannot because he is handcuffed to a dead person.
This is what happens to you when your closest friends are in darkness and are unbelievers. They drag you down. The devil likes people to dwell among the dead like that and become the kinds of people nobody can tame.
To make it worse now, the internet has become a place that recruits tomb dwellers. While the internet has far reaching advantages like giving information, giving knowledge, making enquiry, communicating, sharing things, banking, shopping, selling and making money, entertainment, practicing advanced technology, you can sell and make money through it, you can actually find a voice and do good, on the Internet.
You can find information on practically everything imaginable, you can have powerful materials that you can study. Even in the things of God, you can use the internet to further the cause of the Gospel.
You can use it to make close contact with your family members during the time they cannot be together, you can do evangelism, fellowship, prayer, encouragement, all these using the internet.
But then it has its own disadvantages. It must not control your life, you must control it. The internet is now abused. There is cyber bullying: they bully and intimidate people, there is cyber crime, cyber security trafficking, unwanted advertisements, terrorism, there are people who have killed people and said they picked it up from the internet, vandalism, pornography, identity theft, exposure to negativity, character assassination, unauthorised usage and access, all these are abuses of the internet. The enemy is now using those areas to recruit people as tomb dwellers. So that internet has grave disadvantages.
If you are committing cyber sin, it opens doors to all kinds of sinful activities, it opens doors to evil companionship, it opens doors to evil communications, it exposes people to false doctrines.
It steals your time. It can replace your dream and revelation of heaven. It can plant demonic fear in you. It can plant depression, rejection, all kinds of vices in your soul.
In many cases, it has replaced the reading of the Bible by people. In many cases, it has become an idol. It has become an open door to secret sin, polluting the mind, killing faith in God and opening doors to immorality.
It has put unnecessary pressure on people. If you are hooked to the internet, you are an internet addict, Facebook addict, Twitter addict, and the enemy is using it to tie you down, you should be very careful.
People have become witches and wizards through the internet. People have become killers through the internet. So the bottom line is: do not allow the internet to control your life.
Take the advantages, grab the good uses. Do not allow yourself to become a tomb dweller by allowing the negativity to catch you. There are plenty of modern day tomb dwellers who have been turned upside down now.
The enemy is writing their last chapter. But what I am telling you is this, there is still a way out. You need to make up your mind; “I do not want to be dead and they say I am living”.
The Bible says “he that giveth himself to pleasure is dead while he is living.” And so by the time they take the person to the cemetery and they say he has died, technically he had died twenty or fifteen years ago. This is a very very serious matter.
When the spiritual life of a person is dead, he lives as a tomb dweller.
WHAT TO DO.
1. Repent from everything negative.
2. Make up your mind with rugged determination that the enemy will not convert you to a tomb dweller.
3. Make up your mind that whether it is convenient for you or not, you will serve the Lord.
This is why God brought you to this program tonight. Are you a modern day tomb dweller? I hope not. If you are, repent!
