Who is it that the devil can devour or more importantly are you one that the devil can devour? What is it the devil eats or where is it the devil eats?
Gen 3:14 KJV And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou [art] cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:
Gen 2:7 KJV “And the LORD God formed man [of] the dust of the ground,. .. .”
Why did Jesus tell His disciples in Luke 9:5 to shake the dust off their feet? And what was the testimony against them?
Luk 9:5 KJV And whosoever will not receive you, when ye go out of that city, shake off the very dust from your feet for a testimony against them.
(What is a Testimony = witness, proof, the declaration which confirms or makes something known?)
Act 13:51 KJV But they shook off the dust of their feet against them, and came unto Iconium.
By shaking the dust of the city off of their feet the disciples were giving testimony that the city and the people of the city were cursed and in opposition to the Word of God. Further that because of the unrighteous attitude of the people the disciples would not even allow the accursed dust of the city to remain on their feet.
The dust represents the things of the world. It is because of the works of Satan, that are contrary to the Kingdom of God and Word of God, that we are commanded not to have fellowship with the world.
2 Co 6:14 KJV Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
2Co 6:17 KJV Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean [thing]. I will receive you,
In the Gospel of John chapter thirteen the Lord gives us to understand that we too should not allow the dust of the world to remain on our feet.
Joh 13:1 KJV Now before the feast of the passover, when Jesus knew that his hour was coming that he should depart out of this world unto the Father, having loved his own which were in the world, he loved them unto the end.
Joh 13:4 KJV He riseth from supper, and laid aside his garments. Took a towel, and girded himself.
Joh 13:5-8 KJV After that he poureth water into a bason, and began to wash the disciples’ feet, and to wipe [them] with the towel wherewith him was girded. 6 Then cometh he to Simon Peter: and Peter saith unto him, Lord, dost thou wash my feet? 7 Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter. 8 Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me.
