It's now almost 0330, and I've been awake all night trying to find my center in God. In his Peace. There is something that is bubbling up inside of me and with a recent event I simply have to act, or do something so the consistent nudging of the holy spirit, that inexpiable unsettled, urging to listen to my intuition, ceases.
We, as a nation and more direct, we whom are believers, are being faced with VERY evil people whom cause mayhem and confusion in all those around them while under the false guise of being a Godly, Spiritual, Christian. I've seen it my ENTIRE LIFE.
"10 For there are many rebellious people, full of meaningless talk and deception, especially those of the circumcision group. 11 They must be silenced, because they are disrupting whole households by teaching things they ought not to teach—and that for the sake of dishonest gain. 12 One of Crete’s own prophets has said it: “Cretans are always liars, evil brutes, lazy gluttons.” 13 This saying is true. Therefore rebuke them sharply, so that they will be sound in the faith 14 and will pay no attention to myths or to the merely human commands of those who reject the truth. 15 To the pure, all things are pure, but to those who are corrupted and do not believe, nothing is pure. In fact, both their minds and consciences are corrupted. 16 They claim to know God, but by their actions they deny him. They are detestable, disobedient and unfit for doing anything good."
Worried you can't spot them? It's REALLY EASY:
First of all, you must understand that when God is talking to you, giving you direction, and setting you on course to grow, learn and progress, it is a safe bet that you will become an immediate target for evil to begin attacking you and the progress God is pushing you towards.
The thing about this process is, IT'S HARD AND SUCKS AT THAT MOMENT, HOWEVER, THAT'S WHAT GOD NEEDS YOU TO ENDURE TO GROW AND STRENGTHEN, and this person or persons that are being used as false-witnesses, will begin to contradict what direction you knew was from God. THAT'S YOUR BIGGEST RED FLAG! Worst part about dealing with this type of situation is how slick and sly Satan is when sending these false 'Godly' friends/family.
You see, the devil knows that when a person is following God's perfect plan and love in their life, that person is going to be in a battle/pressure cooker, as it's only through perseverance in struggle that we are brought to a place where we learn and grow. So, when the Devil's false witnesses come to steal and destroy the work God is doing inside you, the largest tactic the Devil uses is to have the false-witness cause doubts, then later, action of stepping down from the spot that God had you working through, and it will then feel GREAT!
The devil will use the fact that God's direction in our lives takes patience and perseverance as you go through VERY uncomfortable and trying events, and makes you think that "this must not be from god! It should NEVER BE THIS HARD," and then when the Devil's succeeded, and you have turned away from God's perfect plan, you feel "So Good and at Peace." which is used by the Devil to confirm to you that NOW you're on the right path.... All the while you have just been effectively taken out of the battle, and of more importance, THAT FALSE-WITNESS HAS JUST ROBBED YOU OF THE LESSON AND PLAN GOD WAS TRYING TO BRING YOU THROUGH SO YOU MAY ENTER NEW STAGES OF PEACE, BLESSINGS, AND COMMUNION WITH HIM.
Truly, my friends, you must STOP yourself from losing out, being defeated, and causing you to be stuck, confused, alone and sad as we know the Devil's promise of "easy going, always happy, there are no wrongs in life," WILL AWLAYS END UP WITH YOU HURTING.
