Some are not our true friends — but maybe ‘fiends’ sent from our adversary into our lives!
We have to be careful of who we let in our life so closely.
“Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.” Matthew 10:16
I will share this recent article to give you the first part.
Now getting back, what is a ‘fiend’ that I referred to here?
In dictionary.com you will see fiend as a noun:
- Satan; the devil.
- any evil spirit; demon
We want to be watchful because the devil sometimes will try to slip someone into our lives with evil spirits.
Just some warning signs:
- If a person comes off pushy, and demanding beware!
- If they try to claim all your time, beware!
- If they claim to have all the answers, beware!
- If they try to get too close to you and don’t want you around others, beware!
- If they try to manipulate you, beware!
This is a witchcraft beguiling spirit sent to distract you and bind you only to them.
We see the true test of ‘Divine love’ which is charity here:
“Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.” 1 Corinthians 12:4-7
I will close for today with a couple more scriptures and another thought.
As I started out in the first part:
“Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.” Proverbs 27:6
*The person trying to get too close will be a stubborn and rebellious person. It may be hidden awhile, but after awhile, it will manifest. It cost Saul a kingdom.
“For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of The LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king.” 1 Samuel 15:23
Watch, pray and seek The LORD always!
