Oh my heart is so broken this morning as YAH continues to show me something that is heartbreaking that is occurring in the lives of those who have been set free from certain issues and strongholds that once held their lives in strong bondage.
I’m observing persons who are experiencing a reverse metamorphosis were they are converting back into the characteristics, mannerisms, attitudes and behaviors of an identity they were made free from.
I’m watching as several persons who have proclaim freedom, are now experiencing a re-connection to familiar spirits that once held them in captivity.
This reversal is taking place strategically by the enemy, by introducing these strongholds back into their lives during times of conflict and warfare and emotional stress that is overwhelming them.
It is during these times when the enemy brings the attachments that were once associated with the creation of the strongholds and that occurred in the person life and they then embrace them back at a vulnerable time, to somehow give them a sense of comfort from an identity or other issue that was used to mask their pain and hurts.
The enemy begins to manipulate their mindsets into thinking that these strongholds are some kind of moments of deliverance that are introduced by YAH, to get them through these troubling times.
Know that the enemy is a master of deception and will use conning mental perceptions to ease a person back into bondage.
He will attempt to give you a false sense of relief from familiar spirits to make you open yourself back to things that are not good for your life.
This is why right now there is a heavy attack against the minds of the people and much pressure is being presented to give persons who are still yet struggling with an issues, or are not spiritually strong, the impression that living for The LORD is so hard, so that they can yearn for the comforts of the life they once lived before salvation.
This is why I cringed when I hear persons make remarks like, “I was doing better in sin,” or “I didn’t get treated like this when I wasn’t saved,” or “I didn’t start going through until I came on The LORD’s side.”
I know that this is just the introduction by the enemy to begin to work on their mind until the enemy can change the victim’s mindset back into those old thought patterns of sin, that they thought brought them joy and peace.
Today I’m praying much for those who are going back into the strongholds.
I’m seeing how the enemy is causing their new identity in Christ to slowly deteriorate and they begin to take back on the old nature of sinful behaviors.
I’m watching them become again what YESHUA saved them from. I’m watching those who once stood on principles of righteousness, to begin to question their beliefs and start to defend their change back into sin and iniquity.
I’m watching, as they refuse to take heed to those whom YAH sends to warn them of the dangers of their attitudes and character changing from holiness to compromise and acceptance of those things that once held them in the grips of the enemy.
Yes I’m heartbroken, because I’m seeing them convert back into the old man and hearing them reject those that are sent to help them remain free.
It’s hard to minister to persons who think they have heard from YAH and who are highly anointed or hold titles of importance, and the people are supportive of their behavior.
So I’m crying out to YAH, asking Him to visit those victims personally, whose who are taking on their old mindset of sin and refuse to see that they are once again walking and displaying the characteristic of what was once a battle that held them in spiritual enslavement.
I’m asking the intercessors to pray for this situation, as it is doing much spiritual damage, because it is presenting a false concept of righteousness and holiness to these people and is opening up doors to stop people from being truly made whole and free from sin and iniquity.
Please pray that their eyes are opened and that they truly see the deception, trickery and manipulation that the enemy is using to turn them from their new identity in Christ, back to their old identity of sin.
