Sharing this in case others are getting frustrated at people; most of them are “Professing Christians” but the fruit of the Spirit is not there.
I talked with others about this. It almost feels like a demonic stronghold when you encounter someone that constantly changes there decisions and often what comes forth from them contradicts what they just told you recently. It’s sometimes referred to as being wishy-washy, but when others are playing games with your mind; it’s not fun and has a distinct demonic smell to it!
Scripture tells us in Matthew 5:37 that we need to let our yes be yes and our no be no; anything else is from Satan!
Even neighbors who tell you something, never follow through with it. For example, you may offer them an appliance that you don’t want to move. They say yes, I’ll take it. Then they say later they don’t want it, and yes later again they say I want it please hold?
You could have a landlord that said “Go ahead extend your lease”, then later said, “Don’t extend your lease and prepare to move, as we are moving in”. Later they say never mind, go ahead and extend your lease. Later they again say, don’t extend your lease and I will have you pay me directly for rent and bypass the property managers! Then when you contact the Property Managers, they too can’t offer you anything that is helpful. I still have no letter or new lease from either party and my 3-year lease expires end of March 2020.
What can I do? Forgive all these people, pray for them as they might need deliverance.
As for me, I trust in the Lord for my new place of living and for his continued healing hand of protection on me. I can’t rely on what others think, what others say or anything else. I must keep trying to listen to the Holy Spirit for myself. Our ways and Our thoughts are not his ways and his thoughts. The Lord may speak to you one way and to me another. I want to follow the Lord and not follow or mimic what others are doing or planning to do.
Don’t let any demons of deception enter in either! Just because someone smiles, doesn’t mean that demons are not living inside them! They will use anyone to come at you to bring in doubt or fear!
Just because it appears a door was shut, expect miracles to come where the Lord opens up a better door. Patience.
Remember that when the Lord opens a door, NOBODY can shut it! When the Lord Closes a door, NOBODY can open it.
Stay Armored Up, as many sense a rise in evil! Don’t let anyone take your crown, remember Victory is in Jesus! Please consider reading all of the books and chapters of the Bible, not just the snippets I place on these blog posts.
Reminder: you can’t break through false-doctrines and doctrines of demons, only the Holy Spirit can do that. Most don’t want to let go of these things, such as the demonic “Once Saved, Always Saved” doctrine from Hell! Many believe they can continue in sin because they were once saved; You can’t fool the Lord! Look how many times you find the words Repent in the Bible. Look how many times Jesus said Repent! Examine yourself daily and come to Jesus with a contrite heart before it’s too late. Many people will twist this saying you are trying to earn salvation! Nobody earns Salvation, nobody is righteous; no not one! It’s a free gift of the Lord’s Grace and nothing you do on your own earns this grace!
Revelation 3:7-13 (HCSB)
“Write to the angel of the church in Philadelphia:
“The Holy One, the True One, the One who has the key of David, who opens and no one will close, and closes and no one opens says: I know your works. Because you have limited strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name, look, I have placed before you an open door that no one is able to close. Take note! I will make those from the synagogue of Satan, who claim to be Jews and are not, but are lying—note this—I will make them come and bow down at your feet, and they will know that I have loved you. Because you have kept My command to endure, I will also keep you from the hour of testing that is going to come over the whole world to test those who live on the earth. I am coming quickly. Hold on to what you have, so that no one takes your crown. The victor: I will make him a pillar in the sanctuary of My God, and he will never go out again. I will write on him the name of My God and the name of the city of My God—the new Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God—and My new name.
“Anyone who has an ear should listen to what the Spirit says to the churches.
Matthew 5:37 (HCSB)
But let your word ‘yes’ be ‘yes,’ and your ‘no’ be ‘no.’ Anything more than this is from the evil one.
Ephesians 6:10-18 (HCSB)
Finally, be strengthened by the Lord and by His vast strength. Put on the full armor of God so that you can stand against the tactics of the Devil. For our battle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the world powers of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavens. This is why you must take up the full armor of God, so that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and having prepared everything, to take your stand. Stand, therefore,
with truth like a belt around your waist,
righteousness like armor on your chest,
and your feet sandaled with readiness
for the gospel of peace.
In every situation take the shield of faith,
and with it you will be able to extinguish
all the flaming arrows of the evil one.
Take the helmet of salvation,
and the sword of the Spirit,
which is God’s word.
Pray at all times in the Spirit with every prayer and request, and stay alert in this with all perseverance and intercession for all the saints.
Galatians 5:16-26 (HCSB)
I say then, walk by the Spirit and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh. For the flesh desires what is against the Spirit, and the Spirit desires what is against the flesh; these are opposed to each other, so that you don’t do what you want. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.
Now the works of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, moral impurity, promiscuity, idolatry, sorcery, hatreds, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambitions, dissensions, factions, envy, drunkenness, carousing, and anything similar. I tell you about these things in advance—as I told you before—that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith, gentleness, self-control. Against such things there is no law. Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. Since we live by the Spirit, we must also follow the Spirit. We must not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another.
