The whole atmosphere in a room can be stolen from Me by a single offended person. The power of My Spirit can fill the atmosphere with love, joy and peace so that everyone is touched and drawn closer to the kingdom on a continual basis. But in a single moment, confusion, fear, and anger can change the atmosphere from heaven to hell when a offense is taken by someone.
Always be aware that the enemy will not let up when you are determined to sell out to Me, but will look for your weak spot. If you are easily offended, your a prime target, for an offense. Your only defense the against attack is love! Let love always reveal the bigger picture.
The bigger picture is the ministry I have planned for you and the hundreds of people that you will touch, if you refuse to take an offense. Right now the enemy is launching a full scale attack using offense darts into the body of Christ. Millions of darts are bombarding My body in hopes that they will hit as many as possible. This will do great damage to everyone especially those who are weak in the faith. It was by the offense of just one man, Adam, that judgment came upon all humans bringing condemnation to the whole planet; But by My righteous act of going to the cross, the free gift of salvation, came upon all men, justifying them and offering them eternal life, Romans 5:18.
Heaven is interceding for each member of the body to surrender all. Just as My going to the cross reversed the offense damage of Adam, if you will go to the cross, it will reverse the damage your offense is about to do! In a moment of decision, you have the power to destroy or build up what it has taken years for My Spirit to arrange.
When you go to the cross you and have truly surrendered all, no offense can be taken, because I become your defender. You have the power within you to overcome all things, but you also can take up an offense and destroy many lives and everything around you! If you really want to come after Me, you must deny yourself, and take up your cross, and follow Me, Matthew 16:24. If you are carrying an offense right now, treat it like a ticking time bomb, run to the cross and it will be disarmed!
