Beware of people with an envious/ prideful spirit, who always trying to compete with everything God gives you to speak, as if they are so superior.
Such people always want to have the last word, so that they can manipulate others to think how much further advanced they are, than you.
It is a form of pride that stems from jealousy and envy within their own hearts, and it comes right before a fall. Manipulation is also a form of the Jezebel spirit.
Don’t take it personally friends, when they are envious and mock, trying to counteract and counterfeit what God gives you to speak.
It is simply because they have not found — or matured — in their true authentic self and identity in Christ, or because they are not hearing God for themselves.
Continue speaking what The LORD gives you to speak and pray that God exposes to these people what it is that is really in their hearts, so that they might repent.
Some already know what spirit they operate under, yet they think they are so cleaver and that others do not see them.
They come off as if they are trying to advance you — improve on you — in what you have spoken, by their adding to it, when in reality, they are trying to exalt themselves in hopes to discredit what God is giving you forth to speak.
Those with true discernment see what is in their hearts, and so does God!
Repent of your pride and envy and find the true freedom that is in your true authentic self and calling.
We are not called to compete with one another, but to love and serve one another doing the Will of God from a pure heart.
It is time to do a heart check upon yourself and repent, before the Fire of God comes to purify the hearts of those operating within these devilish spirits, to cleanse them.
Heart check time!
“And thus are the secrets of his heart made manifest; and so falling down on his face he will worship God, and report that God is in you of a truth. How is it then, brethren? when ye come together, every one of you hath a psalm, hath a doctrine, hath a tongue, hath a revelation, hath an interpretation. Let all things be done unto edifying,” 1 Corinthians 14:25-26.
“But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth. This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish. For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work. But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy,” James 3:14-17.
