Serpents Are Masters of Inner Power

Serpents Are Masters of Inner Power

Scripture: Mark 7: 20:23

20 He went on: “What comes out of a person is what defiles them. 21 For it is from within, out of a person’s heart, that evil thoughts come—sexual immorality, theft, murder, 22 adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance, and folly. 23 All these evils come from inside and defile a person.”


According to Bishop Dag Heward-Mills- “Serpents are wise because they have developed inner power. The great wisdom of the serpent is to have developed internal power that is called venom. Snakes produce saliva from within their mouths just like we all do. The saliva of a snake is its venom. The venom a snake produces within itself is so powerful that it can kill a human being, a lion or even an entire village.

The great power of a snake comes from within. The snake produces saliva from within itself and this saliva is so potent that a drop of it can send you to your grave. Imagine your saliva being so powerful that you could kill someone by spitting at him.

For instance, the venom of the king cobra is so deadly that one bite can kill twenty people or one elephant. Likewise, the Australian Brown Snake’s venom is so powerful that only 1/14,000th of an ounce is needed to kill a human being.

Australia’s inland taipan snake (Oxyuranus microlepidotus) is said to possess the strongest venom of any land snake. Fortunately, it seeks unpopulated areas and rarely bites people. Taipan snakes have venom 50 times more toxic than a cobra.

Every man can unleash positive powers or negative powers from within. It is when something comes from deep within that it is powerful. Both positive and negative things gain their power when they are within and from the heart. Without the heart’s involvement every word and physical action is powerless.

The power that comes from withing you are the strong force that can do wonders in your life and ministry. It is what comes from within you that determines how powerful you may be. What is on the outside has very little real effect.

Furthermore, to be wise as a serpent, you must seriously work on what is within you!

 You cannot be used by God if you are not as wise as a serpent. A snake has lot of power, and the power is all internal.

The great wisdom of the serpent is to develop internal power. The great wisdom of the serpent is to fight with internal powers. Work on your hidden internal thinking processes. Your negative thoughts reduce the power within you. A minister must work on his thoughts. Jesus said that the things that defile you come from inside.

When you open your inner life to hidden evil thoughts, hidden deceit, hidden thefts, and hidden adultery, all your powers go out and are like a snake without saliva or venom! Most aspects of righteousness are hidden. True righteousness is not easy to see because you cannot see the hearts and minds of people. You must be strong internally so that God can anoint you!

Finally, an evil eye, evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, blasphemy, pride, and foolishness deplete spiritual power and contaminate you.

Dear Lord! May the works of the flesh mentioned in Galatians 5:19 not hider or contaminate or stop us from manifesting our internal powers, Amen.
