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

Posted in Christian fantasy fiction with tags , , , , , , , , , , on September 1, 2014 by eliseway

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.

The Spirit of Slander and Accusations

Posted in Christian fantasy fiction with tags , , , , , , , , , on April 22, 2014 by eliseway

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.
