MANIPULATING PEOPLE WITH GUILT IS A FORM OF WITCHCRAFT

MANIPULATING PEOPLE WITH GUILT IS A FORM OF WITCHCRAFT  When people try to make you do what they want which is not what God wants then they will often resort to making you feel guilty to control and manipulate you into doing their will. God never controls us through guilt as He gives us a freewill to choose to serve Him or not so people who try to control others to do whatever they want and not what God wants are in rebellion to God and the Bible says rebellion is as witchcraft in 1 Samuel 15:23.  So whoever tries to make you feel guilty understand they are not of the Lord and do not receive it. Do not allow them to manipulate you by guilting you to do what they want. The Lord and Holy Spirit never causes us to feel guilty - they convict us lovingly if we need to repent or change.  People who try to control or guilt you are operating in a subtle form of witchcraft which the Bible also refers to as sorcery - which is a fruit of the flesh.  Galatians 5:19-21 NKJV “Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are:…

WHEN JEZEBEL CAN’T CONTROL YOU THEY LIE TO OTHERS TO GET THEM TO HATE YOU

WHEN JEZEBEL CAN’T CONTROL YOU THEY LIE TO OTHERS TO GET THEM TO HATE YOU The Jezebel spirit affects both women and men. Revelation 2:18-23 says we are not to tolerate people who operate in it because they are evil. Jezebel does their damage through controlling and manipulating their victims to do what they want and not what God wants. They operate in a level of witchcraft. When their victims no longer submit or obey their demands they resort to controlling them through lying about them to others and devising a false narrative in order to get others to hate them and stop them from accomplishing what the Lord wants. Most people believe their lies because they are greats actors and actresses and will support Jezebel to hate on their victims to stop them from doing what the Lord wants them to accomplish.  In 1 Kings 21:1-16 Ahab wanted Naboth’s vineyard to turn into a vegetable garden. Naboth refused to sell it to him for he was giving it to his children. So when Ahab pouted about it Jezebel said she would help him get it. She arranged a banquet and invited Naboth to it under false pretense to honor…

PRIDEFUL PEOPLE FEEL COMPELLED TO CONTROL & CORRECT YOU CONSTANTLY

PRIDEFUL PEOPLE FEEL COMPELLED TO CONTROL & CORRECT YOU CONSTANTLY  Prideful people have demons and are some of the most self-righteous people on earth like the Pharisees. They are spiritually blind to see that they need deliverance from demons and hear thousands of voices a day telling them to tell others what to do because they are perfect. Their demons tell them that others just need to listen to them and their infinite wisdom all the while they have logs in their own eyes (Matthew 7:1-6). The demons convince them that they are hearing from the Lord and Holy Spirit when they are actually hearing from demons. They can’t just keep their mouths shut as the demons compel them so strongly so they end up hurting people all day long with their words and then wonder why no one wants to be around them.  They provoke and hurt people every day by listening to their own demons and then criticizing others, shaming and blaming them for things that are insignificant or even not true all the while thinking they are perfect and the salt of the earth. They have no fruit of the spirit but lots of fleshly characteristics. Galatians…

JEZEBEL & AHAB HAD MONEY & CONTROL BUT ELIJAH OVERCAME WITH GOD’S ANOINTING

JEZEBEL & AHAB HAD MONEY & CONTROL BUT ELIJAH OVERCAME WITH GOD’S ANOINTING Jezebel and Ahab had money, power, religious worship of idols, control, murdered people who were against them and yet Elijah had God’s anointing and was able to stop the rain, kill the 850 prophets of Baal and Asherah and defeat Jezebel and Ahab. People today who are serving Jezebel and Ahab often have money, control and power and try to stop those who are truly of God. They try to shut them down and lie about them to as many who will listen just like Jezebel did to Naboth. Ahab wanted Naboth’s vineyard for a vegetable garden so Jezebel lied about Naboth accusing him of blaspheming God and coming against King Ahab and killed him to steal his vineyard to give to Ahab. People today will be accused by Jezebel with lies to manipulate other people to come against those of the Lord who are innocent. 1 Kings 21 NKJV Naboth Is Murdered for His Vineyard 21 And it came to pass after these things that Naboth the Jezreelite had a vineyard which was in Jezreel, next to the palace of Ahab king of Samaria. 2 So…

HOW SHOULD YOU HANDLE EMOTIONAL ABUSE IN MARRIAGE & RELATIONSHIPS?

HOW SHOULD YOU HANDLE EMOTIONAL ABUSE IN MARRIAGE & RELATIONSHIPS? Emotional abuse in marriage & relationships is unfortunately more common than people would want to think and is also equally as challenging to decide just how to address it and with whom. Most times when two people get married for the first time they expect their partners to love on them and to allow them to make decisions that bring the greatest level of satisfaction to them. They both expect to be able to do whatever they want to do that will bring them the greatest level of enjoyment. Often times shortly after the wedding (and some times longer) one of the spouses will usually place demands to make most of the decisions in the marriage and begin to control and manipulate the other spouse who usually has more of a giving heart. Over time it begins to cause the spouse who is being controlled to feel less valued, dominated and no longer feel loved. The more demanding spouse wants even more control, will behave very proudly and talk more condescending with disrespect to their mate. Eventually the controlled spouse will feel sick to their stomachs frequently because of the…

GOD NEVER CONDONES ANY ABUSE IN RELATIONSHIPS

I hear from thousands of people each year who have struggled through being emotionally, physically or sexually abused in their relationships, often times for much of their lives (marriages, fathers and mothers, step fathers, church leadership and those who attend, friends, etc.).  Most people who attend church who have been married have been preached to that God hates divorce and so feel like they must stay in a toxic, abusive relationships until death do they part.  Of course God hates divorce – but He also hates abuse which causes the victims to feel sick to their stomachs and often receive diseases and a slow death due to the unhealthy control, feel scared of their spouse and have to walk on egg shells every day while submitting to the demons in their spouse, parents or others.  Does God actually want you to stay submitted to a person whose demons are manifesting on you every day, verbally and emotionally abusing you for hours every day, causing you to feel worthless at best and suicidal at worst, dying slowly inside your body, soul and spirit every day and unable to do anything for the Lord?  Absolutely not.  And abuse does not have to…

MANY IN THE CHURCH ARE PRACTICING WITCHCRAFT UNAWARE

Most people think that witchcraft is done by witches who wear tall black pointy hats, with green tinted faces and a wart, who cackle when they laugh and boil things like bats and newts in black cauldrons and cast spells on people and astral project to listen in on people’s conversations.  Yes there are some witches who could fit that description but there are far more who are doing witchcraft every day who look normal and are in leadership of most churches around the world as well as have their own ministries.  And many of them are also men. Truth be told – at the simplest level - witchcraft is when one person tries to make another person do what they want which goes against what God wants for them (sometimes in very subtle ways while others are more overt).  It is not loving or true freedom to try to make a person do what you want them to do when it ultimately hurts them.  Controlling other people to do what you want is done by both men and women and is witchcraft. Where the spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom (2 Corinthians 3:17). The reason people control…

The symbolism of my 3-hour Denver hike with the bull snake, 3 fish and the prairie dogs

So last night I returned to Denver from tending to the funeral of my oldest brother Keith from Indiana. I love to go for runs, walks and hikes and the weather was perfect in Denver this morning for a long run, walk and hike on a trail that I had not ventured on before. I went about 90 minutes in one direction towards the Rocky Mountains. On my way out I noticed something I had never seen on any of my hikes before that were not around any body of water (stream, creek, river, pond, lake, ocean). I saw 3 large fish that were about 18-24 inches long. It seemed strange to me as the nearest stream, creek and river was over 10 miles away and there were no ponds around that would hold fish that large nearby as I was near the high point of the area. I then hiked another 90 minutes and realizing that I did not bring any water with me, decided to return as the temperatures were warming. I had noticed a sign warning me about rattle snakes in the area that I was hiking in. About half way back to home I saw a…

What are the behavior traits if someone is being affected by the Jezebel spirit?

So what are the common behaviors that people who have endured this type of life in youth exhibit towards their spouse, children or others in the work place?  Below is a list of some common traits and, if one is truly honest (and that is the key to this book that the one reading it must be totally honest with themselves), they will probably identify with some or many of them.  The more of the pain that they have endured in their life from a father that was overly controlling, rejecting, and hurtful or a mother that was void of unconditional love the more of the behaviors they will exhibit. The more behavior traits that they exhibit the stronger the enemy spirit’s control of them will be and the harder it will be for them to admit they may have an underlying issue and the more challenging it will be for them to get free from the unhealthy control of the enemy.  There is a continuum and some may only exhibit a few of the behaviors, thus the spirit is not as strong upon them although it could still be present and active.  If they exhibit many or most of…

Our Pasts Control Our Future

When young people decide that they want to be married they do not often think anything about how their pasts will affect their future.  They fall “in love” with a person and allow their emotions to drive their desires and before they know it they are making life-affecting decisions based upon a few months or year or two of “dating” when people try to put on a front of who they believe the other person wants them to be.  They feel “in love” and totally throw out the window all common sense and any possible hint of spiritual discernment.  They let their eyes focus on their mate’s hair, eyes, body, humor, and totally ignore their heart and who they actually are behind closed doors.  They do not see inside their spirit as to whom they are when no one is looking but God. What people do not think about is what happens when a person grows up in a family that has little to no unconditional love and how it may affect a young woman or man for the rest of their lives. I know that I never thought about it as I grew up in a home where I…
