Well… when your life’s mission (so to speak) is to expose the works of darkness, retaliation by the demonic (as well as by people being used by the demonic) is to be expected. I don’t know how much other Christians deal with this or how intense it is for them or what form it takes for them, but here lately, for me, it’s been pretty intense, from the spiritual side of things, anyway.
If it’s ever appropriate, I might go into some detail later, but at any rate, today, after yet another night of threats and warnings by the demonic to basically “cease and desist”
isn’t it funny how both people AND the demonic react in similar ways when they feel threatened by the truth…? hmm…
and after being given a “reasonable-sounding warning”
since the previous night’s death threat was thwarted by the grace of God
to “stop doing what I’m doing” and to “just stay away from my computer”
those were the exact words… LOL! 😂
my resolve is stronger to do the work that God has for us to do.
And today, I’m reminded of these verses:
For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but to do the will of Him who sent Me.
(These are the words of Jesus Christ, and I’m not trying to put myself on His level… but since I am following Him, I am reminded of His words… and since HE did the will of the Father, then so will I.)
I John 4:3b-4
This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming, and is already in the world at this time.
You, little children, are from God and have overcome them, because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world.
What then shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?
For those of you who are experiencing attacks from the demonic (or from people who are being controlled by the demonic), I want to remind you of what Carolyn and I have talked about already in regards to demonic attack. You can watch the video and read the notes here:
I leave you with these last verses of Romans 8 for encouragement (the entire chapter of Romans 8 is very encouraging, so I hope you can find some time to read it!):
And we know that God works all things together for the good of those who love Him, who are called according to His purpose. For those God foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brothers. And those He predestined, He also called; those He called, He also justified; those He justified, He also glorified.
What then shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son but gave Him up for us all, how will He not also, along with Him, freely give us all things? Who will bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. Who is there to condemn us? For Christ Jesus, who died, and more than that was raised to life, is at the right hand of God—and He is interceding for us.
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or distress or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written:
“For Your sake we face death all day long;
we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor principalities, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
So don’t give up! 😊 God is for you, and He will work ALL THINGS together for the good. This is His promise!
You will overcome because Jesus Christ has overcome!
P.S. Should something “accidentally” happen to me, I’d like to have it known now, publicly, that it wouldn’t have been an accident, but in retaliation for my refusal to back down from exposing the darkness of the enemy (Satan and the demonic). Either way, it will work for the good, because that’s the promise of God’s Word. And God always gets the last word.
