Passage: Eph 6
10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. (Eph 6, NIV)-emphasis added
In his book “Epic battles of the last days”, Pastor Rick Joyner brings out the fact that Jesus Christ-the intercessor vs. satan the accuser.
The spirit of accusation affects individuals, families and churches alike
More than anybody else, it affects the blessings of those who accuse others
Spiritual insecurity, self-pity and pride causes most accusations. The quest for recognition and fame can put us in a really bad place
I have seen some people doing “all they can” so that “ten” people will know them. On the other hand, people who are committed to what God has called them for, will automatically get their acceptance because God does that
If you feel that you did not “get noticed” somewhere, just thank God
In Ephesians 6, Paul suddenly takes the Church from a “family” atmosphere to that of an Army. He talks about fight, than peace!
There is a reason. While Church is very much a family within, it has a common enemy, who prawls around like a roaring Lion. “Sleepers” are in danger!
More than any time before, this is the time to be awake and praying
If our blessings are “blocked” somewhere, check ourselves, our habits first!
If God is blessing the other brother/sister, may be you are the next one in line. God just brought it so close to you so that you can cheer up!
So, thank God for blessing the other brother/sister/family/church
21 The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit. (Prov.18:21, NIV)
17 But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. 18 Peacemakers who sow in peace reap a harvest of
righteousness. (James 3:17-18, NIV)
Keep the blessings by being thankful. God will bless even more
Prayer: Lord Jesus, help me stop accusing others even in my mind. Instaed, help me start interceeding for those I have been accusing. Help me not to sleep, but be awake and discern the times and pray. Amen
“It may not be easy to get rid of the spirit of accusation, but it is possible”
