The Spirit of Accusation: Dealing with Persecution, Negative Words and Disparaging Comments


In this life, I have come to realize that you are not going to be able to please everyone all the time. People are constantly going to have something to say or complain about something that you are doing is wrong. I come to realize the Enemy will use people, situations, and things that is suppose to destroy or diminish your influence among other people. Especially if your influence is positive in nature and persecution comes through a spirit of intimidation and jealousy even during Jesus Christ time. People who are insecure or feel inept will try to destroy other people in order to look better. The Pharisees and Sadducees tried their best to ridicule, demean and make accusations toward Jesus Christ who would always respond using wisdom and The Word of God. That is why it’s important the words that come out of mouth can destroy and hurt people and you can’t take them back. God wants us to tame our tongues and use His Wisdom to speak to people. The Spirit of Accusation goes to and fro trying to accuse others of wrongdoing in order for us to condemn ourselves and quit doing what we are doing for God and His People. The most unlikely people can say the most cruel and hateful words that if you are not careful, they can get into your heart and spirit planting a poisonous seed that could hinder God working through and in our lives. The Devil constantly accuses us of doing wrong things so we can feel so condemned that we quit everything including serving God. In dealing with people with accusatory spirit is to actually pray and not respond in a reactive way. It is easy to give people a piece of our mind and do what my mother would have done, confronted them all the way. I am not going to lie, it’s hard not to turn the other cheek but now I understand what Jesus meant by that. Turning the other cheek doesn’t mean just literally not to hit someone back but to keep your mouth closed and not retaliate when someone comes at you with words or deeds that are negative in nature. Allowing God to do the payback for us always is better and turns for our good. Negative words may hurt but adding fuel to the fire with more negative words only causes more offenses and hurt to arise which is exactly what The Enemy wants us to do which is to fight each other and never unify together. Prayer is the key to destroy the Spirit of Accusation and get past what folks say for if they did to Jesus, they are going to do it you. When you realize that you are here to please God and not Man, words will not hurt or affect you because you know people aren’t going to always have something nice to say or be pleased with you. When you truly get past what people think, you are truly free indeed.
