This has been on my heart for a while now and I feel the need to highlight this.
The spirit of insanity is running rampant in the earth, to the point where we are seeing very wicked and evil acts and behaviors from people.
If we are not careful, we will get caught up in it and find ourselves in a make-believe world or begin to accept or approve of a reality that is not even reality, because of an atmosphere that has been created by witchcraft.
If we do not know God, know who we are and what God has called us to, we will begin to embrace and accept situations and circumstances that was never His will for our lives.
Yes, the enemy comes to kill, steal and destroy, but really God has come that we might have life and have it more abundantly.
This is a deliberate action sent from Hell to try to make you unaware of reality so you will not be so sensitive or mindful of what is really happening.
It is designed to cloud your vision. It is designed to alter your decision. Some people may even try to progress but for some reason find themselves stagnant or in a cycle.
It is like, no matter how hard they try, there seems to be something that is trying to block, hold them back or keep them stuck.
You see, the demonic kingdom is real and until we accept the fact that there is a Heaven and there is a Hell, we will never make sense of what is happening around us.
There are evil forces that are deliberately sent to either take you out, keep you bound or destroy you. However the devil wants to keep you ignorant of his devices so you will not be able to take effective measures against him.
Hell knows if you cannot see and think clearly, you will not be as effective as you should. It is so unfortunate that we not so aware of our atmosphere and the intense witchcraft activity that takes place.
Some of us are not as alert and sensitive to recognize when there has been an interference in the natural flow of nature. We of often do not realize when nature has been tampered with and is being manipulated to bring forth an outcome or an agenda.
Listen, what seems to be natural is not always natural. Some things we tend to sweep under the rug because of our inability make sense of what is really happening.
Some may even sense some things taking place but have no words to describe it because of not being sure of what they are experiencing, but deep down they know something is not right.
I am here to liberate you — you are not crazy! What you sense and discern is real and it is taking place.
The enemy may in fact try to make you feel as though you are crazy because of the need to be camouflaged.
The Word of God says, “My people perish because of a lack of knowledge.”
We are living in a time where Apostle Paul spoke to young Timothy about the height of deception and lie. 1 Timothy 4:1 says, “Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons”.
The Word of God must be the basis from which we judge. The Word of God is the final authority. It cannot lie so those of us who may need clarity concerning doctrines need to always rely God and the Word of God no matter how deep or intelligent the individual may sound or appear.
Hear me and hear me very well, any spirit that is not the Holy Spirit is not of God.
We MUST be careful of what we open ourselves to and get involved in. Not because it appears good, means it is God.
The Word of God says, test the spirit. We must be very careful of what we accept and allow especially in and amongst our families, relatives and children and in our homes.
Demons are not to be played or come in agreement with. Resist the unclean and the demonic. We must be careful of any spirit that try to control, magnify itself, flatter, take us on a high or try to take position in our lives.
Familiar spirits are sent by witches and warlocks to monitor and try to control lives. The vulnerable are often targets and preys for witches and warlocks.
The familiar spirits will not first show up as an evil spirit (you must be able to discern or have discerning of spirit to detect when in operation).
This is where some may even find themselves on the wrong path, because it will try to open doors or present opportunities that are not even in God’s will for your life.
The strategy of the enemy is to use it to throw you off track or keep you trapped in hope to get you out of God’s Will.
People who are quick to let their guards down, trust easily, cannot wait on and never seek God are very easy prey.
Sometimes persons who have given over themselves to these spirits will begin to depend on the spirits and eventually the spirit will begin to manifest itself after it has gained access to their lives by trying to control or manipulate the person, because it was never God it is just what it is, an evil spirit sent to destroy you.
If we are not careful these spirit may even try to grow with the person and before they know it, the spirit tries to takes place and position in their lives and will eventually begin to feel a sense of entitlement, or begin to dictate and control them.
For some, they may even begin to notice problems in their relationships, work, Church, school and areas of their personal lives manifesting. Why? Because the spirit has crept in, has gained their trust and has now turned on them.
This is why you should protect your relationships, because you will become suspicious of even those of your loved ones.
People who walk in the flesh may even begin to manifest the demonic spirits. If we have no sense of self or lack the drive or determination to fulfill purpose we can become susceptible to the plans of the enemy.
The devil wants your focus hence the need to be focused. May we be alert and be conscious of what happens in and around us.
We can break free from and renounce any evil covenants or relationships that we may have knowingly or unknowingly come in agreement with.
This is not to cause fear or torment but that we may be conscious of what goes on around us.
There is a God, and He is not dead. He is seated on His Throne ready and waiting for those who will come after, seek and pursue Him.
May we seek to go higher in Him because the closer we are to God; the more protected and discerning we become.
