The Spirit of Slander and Accusations


It’s been a few months since I posted and much has transpired since then that I have plenty to blog and say especially in terms of living the life of a Christian. I am now starting to realize how few issues and problems I had with folks who didn’t know Jesus than those who do. I have noticed that people are running their mouth and talking about somebody or saying negative things about someone they don’t like nor care for. Sometimes its for a good cause to notice things that are out of order but if people aren’t praying about it, they just talking noise and fluff. It’s a shame how people will accuse you of things that you know you didn’t do or say but try to make it seem like they don’t do or say anything wrong. I tend to listen people talk and respond slowly concerning the matter but the bottom line should be to pray about a particular person or situation. There are so many spirits running rampant in the earth that we have to always remember we are dealing with spirits that are operating in the person and not try to fix it through our flesh. Going off on folks or telling them a piece of your mind doesn’t make matters any better because it’s a spirit at work and you have to confront the spirit through prayer and fasting. I know even right now somebody is talking about somebody and sowing discord among the brethren. Even the Lord hates those who sow discord among the brethren. Fellowshipping with other saints can be a challenge when you got the Spirit of Slander and Accusation working among the brethren because this spirit loves to keep up mess and cause offenses that can bring wedges between those who suppose to be a Child of God. It irks me when people think you are acting funny because you aren’t being extra friendly or nice to them and get offended to the point they tell others that you not being nice to them when you actually are. See, the spirit of slander and accusation tries to cause conflict to occur based on hearsay not what God is saying. People have left church and people because of negative words spoken by another person and not getting to know the person. The seeds of discord are planted to bring forth anger, offense, contention and hatred toward our sisters and brothers in the Lord. The tongue is unbridled and hard to tame causing the greatest damage to people through slanderous and accusatory words. The Devil is the accuser of the brethen and seeks to accuse God’s people of every wrongdoing he can make us feel bad about. He will use people to bring false accusations or slander your name just like they did Jesus. Persecutions comes when we doing the Will of God and other folks aren’t or won’t so they try to bring you down to their slackness and backsliding tendencies. Even people you were nice and kind to in the past will sometimes speak negative about you just because they are miserable and out of the Will of God. Those who possess these evil spirits that gossip, talebearer, slander, and accuse have bad disposition and mean-spirited in nature trying to disguise through niceness. A friend of mine use to call it being nice-nasty when a person sounds and act like they are nice but has a bitter or distaste to their demeanor. Nice nasties are the first to accuse and last to accept blame for anything. Folks that run people down with their words are prideful and unrepentitive because they think they are right to judge and criticize others. The only way to close the mouths of backbiters and gossipmongers is through prayer and allowing God to shut the mouths of the naysayers realizing the only person you can please is God not man. When people understand that God is the only one that needs pleasing, worrying about what people say won’t bother or vex us to the point that we lose our joy and peace in God.
