The warfare attached to your assignment
The warfare attached to your assignment can either push you to greatness or cause you to fall in the weakness. When God spoke to me concerning what He wanted me to do in the Body of Christ He did let me know that there would be much opposition and warfare that will come to me. He gave me the instructions necessary to keep me in a place of spiritual stability and strength.
He told me I had to fast and pray stay in the word, keeping myself set apart from the people. As long as I did these things, I would stay in a place of victory and strength. It’s when I begin to intermingle with the people, that I begin to experience warfare greatly.
I told The Lord, I was sorry, because I listen to someone whom I trusted in leadership who said I was too standoffish to the people, and that I needed to allow the people greater access.
The problem is, that was not what God had told me, so it caused consequences. People started getting to common with me, and familiar, which cause them to begin to disrespect the assignment on my life. I had to learn the hard way, that you can’t allow the sheep access to your intimacy, because they will begin to see you as their buddy, rather than the assignment in their lives.
I love people, but I have to remember the boundaries that are set the lines not to cross the ones to trust with my intimacy. The greatest mistake a leader can make is opening up their intimacy to those that want to reveal their nakedness.
When they are angry or upset, they will unclothed you, before your enemies, so that you can be destroyed. My leader used to tell me, “Barbara, don’t let anybody into your private life that God hasn’t pre-authorized.” He said, “The Lord will allow you to examine them through loyalty and confidentiality assignments.” He said, “Anybody who talks a lot, can’t be trusted, because talkers over-talk themselves. They will say things that they wasn’t intended to say.”
He said, “Those with anger issues can’t be allowed in, because when they get upset, anything you have said to them in confidence, will be repeated to hurt you. Those who have problems submitting, can’t be brought in because if they see any flaw they will use it to justify their reason for coming up against you disrespecting you or thinking they are better than you.”
He said, “You have to only allow those whom God has even connected limited access. No matter how much they love you, how much you love and care for them, remember you can lead people that can’t respect who you are.”
I love my leadership lessons that I have learned through the years. Some through trials errors and mistakes but all of them have made me grow up mature and become stable. People never stop learning, never stop growing, never stop searching, never stop seeking, never stop maturing!
I love God so much and I just want to please Him in all I say and do. Forever growing in Christ!
Being attacked at night by demonic forces?
I am noticing and getting many requests from those who are being attacked at night by demonic forces, or they are being verbally attacked by persons that are influenced by forces of darkness.
Remember people, we are in the season of witchcraft and the witches warlocks witch doctors etc are in the highest time of trying to release curses and spells. The Christian witches are truly on the warpath and those of you that are a real threat to the kingdom of darkness is being targeted especially now by persecution gossip character assassination scandalous remarks etc. by those that hold high leadership positions in the Body of Christ.
These Christian witches are those that pretend they are being bold in the Body of Christ but their only agenda is to destroy discredit and stop the influence of those that are doing a work in the Kingdom of God.
You will know them because they don’t attack anyone that is doing evil or wrong doing they just look for those in the Body that are being elevated promoted and are a great influence on the lives of others. They connect with people that are connected to the one they trying to destroy and uses those that are easily manipulated because of issues pains and hurts that they have not been healed from.
Some people don’t even realize that they are being used as a puppet to attack those in the Body of Christ. They are able to be useable by the workers of evil because they used their issues as the tools of destruction.
People of God, the attacks are real but God is greater than the attacks and He is greater in you. The Lord keeps saying to me that He is coming in this season as a mighty MAN OF WAR to fight against the works of evil and to protect His people. People, there are those that are fighting on your behalf and standing in the gap interceding and fighting for your protection.
The greatness thing I had happen to me were the Men of God who came together and began to war in the Spirit on my behalf, because they said they saw the attacks coming against me and other Women of God in ministry by those sending curses and warfare to them.
These Men of God said their assignment is to protect those being harass by the workers of evil and the kingdom of darkness. They prayed until they broke ever curse every spell every work of darkness.
I salute these men because they said they are assigned to protect and guard the Women of God in ministry. There are watchmen on the wall intercessors crying out day and night prayer warriors wailing in warfare that are standing in the gap and fighting warring and destroying the works of darkness on our behalf. Those of you going through know you are not in the fight alone there are persons that God has assigned to stand with you in your warfare and are crying out day and night for you!
Remember they can’t curse whom God has blessed. They can’t stop what God has purposed! Psalms 91 is at work right now stand strong God got this one for sure!
The consequences ungodly manners
People, the ugliest thing I’m seeing now in the Body of Christ is persons that say they are saved, filled with the Holy Ghost, but are praying death and evil prayers against people.
How do we who say we have the Spirit of God, get to a place were we begin to work witchcraft and divination in the name of The Lord?
Do we not understand that God will not let you destroy or hurt His children and use His name as a stamp of approval with your wickedness?
Are we not understanding that when He says, “touch not my anointed,” that He is warning us to keep our hands off of people that belong to Him?
Why are we not afraid, to rise up and strike against each other?
How are we saying we are anointing and in the glory of God, but we hate someone so bad that we are wishing them dead, and are praying that they are hurt or harm is done to them?
What would make us come in covenant with warlocks and witches to cast spells against someone?
How did we in the Body of Christ become so wicked in our heart that we mastermind destruction and terror against another person?
Today I’m weeping not just for the sinners, but for those in the Body of Christ that have gotten off track and out of order and have went into a covenant with Satan. I’m weeping because they are so delusional, until they think God is going to honor what they are praying or plotting against another person.
I’m hurting, because I see the plan of Satan spreading, because we don’t know how to love forgive or help each other.
I’m hurting because we have allowed ourselves to get into a place were Satan can actually cause damage to our soul.
People, hell is real and if we don’t change, we are going to end up in eternal damnation. God has truly come in and awakened me very strongly about is the consequences of speaking and acting in ungodly manners.
I look in the mirror at myself and check my own self out and those areas that needed cleaning I cleaned up. That’s something we all need to do look in the mirror and truthfully see the real you.
Work on the issues that can cause us to be unclean before God’s eyes. I don’t want to go to the lake of fire and be eternally separated from God. I’m striving pushing trying and determined willing and adamantly going to live holy and righteous before God.
I told the people, we have to let go of hurts pains offenses and all that has taken place and press forward to a lifestyle that is absolutely pleasing to God. As a leader, I know there were times I made mistakes, I hurt someone, or acted out of character, but I knew how to repent get it straight and move forward.
One thing I never let anybody do is hold me hostage to, is the past. I quickly learn how to forgive and ask for forgiveness, so that there would be nothing in my heart against anyone. No matter what remember God looks at your heart. Have we all made mistakes yes we have so let’s not be so judging of each other.
Let’s learn how to walk in the Love of Christ toward each other. My Pastor would say it’s easy to hate, its easy to be angry, it’s easy to even justify hurting someone back, but a person who is truly a child of God, will never let hate become a part of them let revenge consume them or anger guide them. They will react always in love no matter what is done.
I have seen him down through the years love those that hurt him show kindness to those that have tried to destroy him and do good to those that have tried to take him down and discredit him.
I seen him invite preachers who tried to ruin him to the church, and he allowed them to do revivals and he treated them like kings or queens. He never let what they did effect his assignment with them, or stop him from obeying God concerning them. I watched him and allowed myself to learn the lesson he learned. He said, “Barbara you can’t walk in godly love until you have learned how not to react to godly hate.”
I didn’t know what he meant then but I sure do know what he meant now. Your greatest lessons of learning love will be among those that walk pray praise and worship together with you! Learn the lessons complete the process and you will find a peace that you have never known why because your heart won’t have anything of Satan in it and you will always remain free because you don’t let nothing anybody do to you become an offense!
Love you much people, stay strong!
