I. EXORDIUM:

Are you a subject of GOD?

Yes.

James 4:7 (Amplified Bible)

So be subject to God. Resist the devil [stand firm against him], and he will flee from you.

Who is your pride?

JESUS CHRIST.

Philippians 3:3 (Amplified Bible)

For we [Christians] are the true circumcision, who worship God in spirit and by the Spirit of God and exult and glory and pride ourselves in Jesus Christ, and put no confidence or dependence [on what we are] in the flesh and on outward privileges and physical advantages and external appearances—

1 Thessalonians 2:19 (Amplified Bible)

Luke 11:26 (Amplified Bible)

And it goes and brings other spirits, seven [of them], more evil than itself, and they enter in, settle down, and dwell there; and the last state of that person is worse than the first.

Luke 11:26 (King James Version)

Then goeth he, and taketh to him seven other spirits more wicked than himself; and they enter in, and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first.

A. The evil spirit brings seven worst spirits and they enter and dwell in an unbeliever's body.

"And it goes and brings other spirits, seven [of them], more evil than itself, and they enter in, settle down, and dwell there;"

We see the Pharisses, representing religious pride and hypocrisy, are being indwelled by these type of spirits.

Matthew 23:15 (Amplified Bible)

Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, pretenders (hypocrites)! For you travel over sea and land to make a single proselyte, and when he becomes one [a proselyte], you make him doubly as much a child of hell (Gehenna) as you are.

We find what matter of spirits or type of spirits that we have on these:

2 Corinthians 12:20 (Amplified Bible)

For I am fearful that somehow or other I may come and find you not as I desire to find you, and that you may find me too not as you want to find me—that perhaps there may be factions (quarreling), jealousy, temper (wrath, intrigues, rivalry, divided loyalties), selfishness, whispering, gossip, arrogance (self-assertion), and disorder among you.
