Time to Discern What Spirit We Are Following and Fear Not!
Any person, Church, group, or organization that tries to guilt you into something is operating in a at the least, a manipulative spirit and sometimes, if it gets bad enough they will go full fledged Jezebel spirit or operate in witchcraft to get you to do something!
These organizations and people, sometimes get so big they take over and become an industry! This is a principality that controls regions many times!
The way that you can discern this spirit is that it brings a sense of obligation and fear to you and begins to bully people into doing what it want s to do.
Paul faced this same thing in Acts 19 in the city of Ephesus. They were worshiping a False goddess Diana and they made a living making statues to this goddess so when Paul started preaching the word of God it messed up their industry and they started coming against him!
We are seeing a movement of bullies right now who are making an industry out of their movement and anything that Christians say that is contrary to it are persecuted by this principality! This false God is trying to make people feel guilty for things they never did.
People of God, this is not of God’s Spirit! It is nothing less that a Spirit of witchcraft and Jezebel! We need to be able to discern in these times what spirit we are getting behind!
The Bible says that it is the enemy that steals, kills and destroys! Period!!
So which spirit are you giving into? The Bible also says that we are not to be giving into a spirit of fear! Fear is of the devil!
I notice now that there are people and most of my friends are Christians so many Christians are afraid to speak out against this spirit that is controlling people and I am seeing whole major chain stores and businesses and even sports teams giving into this bullying, because they are afraid like the Ephesians to rattle the hand that is feeding them! or else they are afraid for their lives!
Folks, let’s don’t lose our soul over these bullies! Let’s begin to preach The Word of God and preach The Truth to people no matter what!
Do you not see that this spirit it’s trying to shame you into doing things it’s way?
I know you know this in your heart and you don’t like it, but we have to take a stand for The Gospel! The true Gospel!
Do you not know that as long as you give into this spirit it will continue! But it is going to take more than one person standing up to it! It is going to take the Church coming together for the sake of the truth and saying NO MORE!
It is going to take intercession and yes corporate intercession! Both in our private time and in Public!
The enemy wants you silenced! The enemy wants you afraid! The enemy does not want you to speak out! But I am here to tell you that I am seeing God making a platform these days for those like Moses who will confront the Pharaoh’s and those like Elijah who confronted Jezebel and the Prophets of Baal!
He is looking for those with The Spirit of Joshua and Caleb, who saw the Giants and yet said ‘we are well able to take the land!’
Yes He is making this platform to confront the systems and governments of this world and the bullies behind them!
He is making a platform for you to shine on! He is making a platform for Signs, Wonders and Miracles to those who are not afraid to confront the evil of this age! And yes there are more with us than there are with them!
“Be strong and courageous; do not be afraid nor dismayed before the king of Assyria, nor before all the multitude that is with him; for there are more with us than with him,” 2 Chronicles 32:7.
“Now, Lord, look on their threats, and grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your word, by stretching out Your hand to heal, and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of Your holy Servant Jesus. And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the word of God with boldness,” Acts 4:29-30.
