TOPIC: SOUTH CAROLINA DEADLY ALLIGATOR ATTACKS: CLOSE THE WINDOW!

BASIC SCRIPTURE: JOHN 14: 27-31

Alligators abound in the United States. South Carolina alone has an estimated population of 100,000 alligators. Experts in gator studies say alligators do not have an instinct to attack humans, so whenever a deadly alligator attack occurs, it makes headline news. A 45 year-old elementary school teacher, Caroline Cline, was killed by a 9-foot alligator while protecting her dog on Hilton Head Island.

According to the story, Cline was walking her dog alongside a lagoon adjacent to the Sea Pines Resort golf course when she was attacked around 9.30a.m. In June 2018, Shizuka Matsuki, 47, was last seen walking her 2 dogs in South Florida before her body was found miles away in a lake in Davie, Florida. Before the incident, Bonnie Walker, a 90 year-old woman, wandered off her senior living centre and was killed in an attack in Charleston, South Carolina in 2016.

But why the sudden rise in alligator attacks? Frank Mazzotti, a professor and wild life expert at the University of Florida, attributed this to dangerous human-gator interactions. He said people are moving deeper into alligator habitat! He said: “People building homes where alligators live have caused the increase in attacks.” Mazzotti then went ahead to state what he believed was a major factor in Cline’s death – her dog.

He said alligators perceive dogs as great food. To an alligator, a dog is like what a chicken is to a human! When an alligator sees a dog, they see their next meal. When the alligator saw Matsuki’s dogs, they saw their next meal, and when they saw Cline’s dog, another opportunity for a meal opened. The dog was the window that was open for alligators to strike.

If the hedge is broken, the serpent will bite! What the Holy Ghost is saying to you is: Something in your life may just be attractive to or attracting your enemies, thus giving them an open window. It may be the way you dress, the way you use your tongue, the way you carry yourself or just your inability to keep a secret. Something in you, about you or around you may just be giving you away to your enemy.

Samson was so infatuated by Delilah that he could not keep the secret of his strength from her. His appetite for women was exploited by the Philistines. It was an open door he paid dearly for. Judas Iscariot’s love for money was the window satan used to enter into him (John 12:6). Your weakness in prayer, your inability to discipline your stomach (fasting), as well as some laziness in studying God’s Word could be why you are so vulnerable.

A life of compromise and difficulty in standing your ground on issues may just be what the enemy is exploiting to attack you. Jesus said in part of today’s scripture, “…the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in Me” (Verse 30). Watch and pray because in the warfront of life, anything can become a loophole! As 2019 ends, examine yourself daily and close any window that can attract satanic attacks!

PRAYER POINTS: Take your best song of worship as led.
1. Thank the LORD for His care now! Worship Him now!
2. Holy Ghost, help me to STOP GIVING MY ENEMIES LOOPHOLES!
3. I shall not give the ACCUSER OF THE BRETHREN any window to accuse me in Jesus name. Scatter arrows of demotion.
