READ: Revelation 18:1-10
...the habitation of devils...the hold of every foul spirit...a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.
A stronghold of evil spirits is a refuge, a sanctuary or a hiding place for demons.
Why did so many evil spirits come to live in Babylon? Why has Babylon become a hold of demons? According to Revelation 18:
"For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her"(Revelation 18:3).
The kings, the ministers of state, the rich and the famous have committed fornication with her. That is why evil spirits have come into her life. Fornication attracts evil spirits into your life. This is so true of many Christians' lives. Evil spirits have aggregated and congregated in them because of their fornication.
When God says do not do something, He knows why! Some of the evil spirits that come into you can prevent you from ever marrying. Some evil spirits can cause you to backslide. Some of them will cause you to marry the wrong person.
Some of them can cause you to have a bad marriage. Some of these evil spirits can also lead you into unfaithfulness in your marriage. The list is endless. Do you want to become a hiding place for demons?
God's Word admonishes us not to give place to the devil."Neither give place to the devil" (Ephesians 4:27).
