Some Things We should Know About... Jealousy


It is often said that "Jealousy is as the spirit of witchcraft." This statement usually comes from the thought that when a person is jealous, their heart is evil and wicked, and would think, do and say anything that would bring about an unfavorable outcome upon the person, or persons that jealousy is felt toward.  Which makes them capable of thinking, doing, and saying anything that is ordained and promoted by the enemy. 

There are some things we should know about jealousy:

A jealous heart is a heart that can be filled with unbelief, doubt, fear, hatred, envy and even strife. It is a heart that has no compassion and feels ill will. Jealousy is deceiving and is attached to the lying spirit.
Jealousy is dangerous and disrespectful. Jealousy is also connected to the spirits that will make you steal, reject, gossip, backbite and even cause emotional and physical pain to others. Jealousy is a murderer!

Jealousy is of the devil and is a wile he has used so many times through those who are not watching, fasting and praying for his kingdom to be exposed and destroyed! The spirit of jealousy has no respect of persons! It will manifest through the young, old, the saved and unsaved, the rich and the poor, the educated and uneducated, family and friends, and even in marriages and churches.

Jealousy causes sickness, disease, mental disorders, and financial distress. It will cause sleepless nights and eating disorders and also promote hypocrisy. Jealousy will cause one to enter into a realm of darkness that is hard to find a way out of. It will cause one to be unthankful, ungrateful, and unable to appreciate the blessings of the Lord that have been given to them!


The spirit of jealousy is attached to a spirit of denial and spiritual blindness which causes one to refuse to admit that they are influenced or controlled by it, now, or have been in the past. Because of this, they will not repent. And, because there is no repentance, jealousy closes the windows of heaven and prevents one's blessings from freely flowing from the Father God! 

Jealousy fights against one who faithfully allows it to occupy the mind and heart. Eventually, jealous will kill...both spiritually and naturally! THAT is jealousy's goal for the life of its host.

BUT! Today is Eviction Day! We can choose to repent and cast out this wicked spirit and all that is attached to it, In The Name Of Jesus!! Fill its place in your heart with the Spirit of God and The Fruit of The Spirit! Never be deceived and overtaken again by jealousy! There is no need for it! You are God's child! Uniquely, fearfully and wonderfully made! There is not room for anything that has not been previously designed in the blueprint of your life! 
"BE" (LIVE, EXIST) as who God has made you, to be! Enjoy what God has blessed you with! Love and cherish who God has placed in your life!
YOU ARE FULL! Greed will make you miserable and invites jealousy to move in. 

Remember these Scriptures:
Job 5:2, "Surely resentment destroys the fool, and jealousy kills the simple." Proverbs 27:4,"Anger is cruel, and wrath is like a flood, but who can survive the destructiveness of jealousy?" (NLT).



Galatians 5:22-23, "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23 meekness, temperance: against such there is no law."

Be Wholly, Holy

Leviticus 19:2, "Speak unto all the congregation of the children of Israel and say unto them, ye shall be holy: for I the Lord your God am Holy."

All of the words in the title are very important to understand. Let's just take a moment to define them:
  • Be ~ To exist or live. To have presence in the realm of perceived reality.
  • Wholly ~Entirely, totally, altogether, quite. To the whole amount, extent. So as to comprise or involve all. Completely, without exception.
  • Holy ~ To be wholly dedicated and devoted to God. Distinct and separate from the world's way of living. committed to right living and purity.
When we look at the word "Holiness," it means the absence of sin, evil, and wrong doing. It is being spotlessly free from blemish. THIS DESCRIBES OUR GOD! And we were created to be like Him. 1 Peter 1:15-16 says, "But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all matter of conversation; because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am Holy."

But being holy is much more than the absence of sin. It is the presence of righteousness, purity and godliness. When we become Believers, God makes us holy by forgiving our sin! He looks at us as if we had never sinned! But while He sees us as holy, we have not perfected holiness. We must still strive each day to be more like Jesus! Wholly Holy!

2 Corinthians 6:17-18 and 2 Corinthians 7:1 teaches us that we grow in holiness by working hard to keep sin out of our lives.  Romans 12: 1-2 helps us more, because we can not live holy on our own, but we can present our bodies as a living sacrifice to God, which is our reasonable service, and while doing that, He will help us Be Wholly Holy.  Deuteronomy 14:2 shows us that God makes us holy by setting us apart as special for Himself! Colossians 1 tells us that through Jesus' death on the cross, in His own human body He brought you into the very presence of God, and you are holy and blameless as you stand before Him without a single fault! Glory to God! All we have to do is 
Be Wholly, Holy! We must know who we are and Be What we are!



The Lord said, "When you choose to Be Wholly, Holy...have presence in the realm of perceived reality, you will begin to see greater works, more of My Power, more of My Presence, more of My Anointing, more of My Grace, and more of My Provision.

You will see less of the manifestations of the devil, sickness, disease, lack, turmoil, and confusion of mind.  When you choose to Be Wholly, Holy, you will experience My Glory, My Presence, My Love, My Spirit in ways you have not yet experienced them! You will begin to hear me even more clearly. Doubt and fear will be absent from your lives, you will be confident in your position because that position is in My Presence and in My Will! Be Wholly, Holy! Be Holy! Exist Holy! Live Holy! I have made you Holy. No unclean thing can be deemed Holy. Remove all the unclean things from your lives and bodies. 

Some of you will find this hard to do because you see no harm in things that are unholy in your lives. But, My Spirit will begin to convict you of things that you see, hear, taste...places you go and people you are around.

Some of you have to rebuild your temple because there are things that are destroying them and making them unholy. Strive while you can to Be Wholly, Holy. And in the end, I will bring you into a place of complete Holiness...in Glory, with Me! 

BE ~ EXIST, LIVE
WHOLLY ~ ENTIRELY, TOTALLY, ALTOGETHER, QUITE, TO THE WHOLE EXTENT, COMPLETELY WITHOUT EXCEPTION
HOLY ~ WHOLLY DEDICATED AND DEVOTED TO GOD. DISTINCT AND SEPARATE FROM THE WORLDS WAY OF LIVING. COMMITTED TO RIGHT LIVING AND PURITY."


Be encouraged! With God's Spirit and His Word, we can be all that He has ordained us to be! Glory to God! Wholly, Holy! That's You! That's Me!

GOD WANTS TO HEAL, NOT JUST HELP!

There are many times in our lives that we ask God for help. Many of us do this on a daily basis, with the expectation that He will do what we ask. But the Lord spoke this to me, 

"There are areas in your life that I want to Heal, and not just help. You need to understand the difference. When you cry out for My help, you are usually asking for my assistance in a matter, or for me to make a situation easier and less difficult. You ask for help with making decisions. Help with finding a job, a mate, a home. Help with paying bills, fixing your marriage, dealing with children, or even help with overcoming your flesh, bad attitudes, ways of thinking, etc. All of them are things you are involved in.

But, there are things that I want you healed from! I want to make you whole in the things that are effecting your life. I want to heal you from things that are trying to take your life! My Healing will make you healthy in all areas. There are things that plague your mind, that I want to make you sound in! There are things I want to bring to an end in your life, therefore you need to be HEALED, NOT JUST HELPED! Only I can do these these things, and your help is not required, only your obedience."



The Lord showed me this example in His Word. John 5:1-9. This is the story about the healing at the pool of Bethesda. There was a man there that had an infirmity thirty eight years, waiting for someone to help him into the pool, when the water was troubled by an angel. However, the man never received healing, because he waited for help getting into the water first. When Jesus saw him, he asked, "Wilt thou be made whole?" The man's answer indicated that he needed help in order to receive healing. But Jesus, with compassion, chose to do more than help him into the pool, instead He HEALED HIM BY HIS WORD! He told the man, "Rise, take up thy bed, and walk." And Immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed and walked!


Jesus could have "Helped" the man, which means render assistance to, or give aid to, but instead, He "Healed" him, which means to make healthy, whole and sound! It means to bring to an end or conclusion! To Heal means to free from evil: cleanse: purify...CURE! GLORY TO GOD!! JESUS brought a thirty eight year infirmity to an end, with His spoken Word!! GLORY TO GOD!! 


The Lord want to heal us, too! He wants to bring to an end, to a conclusion, everything that we are suffering from! Though this scripture is speaking of physical healing, the Lord wants to heal us from everything that is causing us trouble. He showed me that even though an infirmity is a physical weakness or ailment, and a lack of strength, it can filter over into other parts of our lives. It can produce mental, and emotional suffering, too! Also, mental and emotional suffering will, or can lead to physical infirmities!

So as you read this, receive the fact that God wants to Heal you, not just help you! He wants to take away your infirmity! He wants to take away the pain, and struggle you may have in your physical body because of sickness and disease, and also bring to an end the pain you are feeling from a broken heart, or a discouraged mind! He wants to extinguish the flames of fear that torment you, daily! He wants to bring to a conclusion the thoughts of your pass that haunt you, and bring to an end the state of anger, and not forgiving you may be in because of things done to you by a person, or people! He wants to Heal you! He wants to make you whole!! He is ready to do it by His Spirit, right now! Today!!


But it is your choice to take up your bed and walk in obedience! You must remember, you can't hold on to an infirmity, and be whole, too! Jesus is asking you a question..."WILT THOU BE MADE WHOLE?" If you notice, Jesus did not force Himself on the man, even though He knew how long he was sick...He asked him if he desired to be whole! What is your desire? Will you continue to lay on you bed of infirmity, or will you pick it up and walk?! What will your answer be? My answer is YES, LORD!!! HEAL ME EVERYWHERE I HURT! Bed of infirmity? What bed of infirmity!?

TALK TO GOD FROM YOUR HEART...GOD WANTS REAL TALK!

When you think about how we communicate with one another sometimes, it will make you wonder how we maintain relationships! For example: "Hi, how are you?" "Fine, how are you?", "I'm good!" Or, this one: "I love you!", "I love you, more!" These are not exactly in-depth discussions, but can be, and sometimes are in fact easily used as cliché's. These brief interchanges are "normal" in the communication of family and friends. Actually, Cliché's are a way of life! They fill our sentences, and saturate our paragraphs. These are patterns of "Superficial Communication." But, if this is the essence of our communication, our relationships will stall, become flat and remain on a superficial plateau! Facts and opinions also fill our conversations. The words go a little deeper, but the true person still remains hidden beneath them. In reality, it is only when honest feelings and emotions are shared real people can be known, loved, and helped.

Often, patterns of superficial communication spill over into our talks with God! We easily slide through worn out phrases and lines that have been "recited" for decades, or we quickly toss in a cliché or two at God and call it prayer! There is no doubt that God hears and understands, but by limiting the depth of our communication, we can become shallow in our relationship with Him. GOD KNOWS US! And He wants to have GENUINE conversation with us!

Let face it...sometimes our prayers are filled with clichés. What exactly is a cliché? It is anything that have become trite or commonplace through overuse. The word, "trite" means lacking freshness or effectiveness because of constant use or excessive repetition. It also means, "stale." Our prayers can also, at times, be described as "Verbiage", which means the excessive and often meaningless use of words. In other words, talking more than necessary, and still not saying anything meaningful and true! This is because we leave out the "real talk" of who we really are, and how we really feel! We fail to admit our faults, sins and shortcomings, and find it hard to repent, because we have become so accustomed to the cover up!

But, in this terrible time we are living in, a time where this world is being heavily influenced by the devil, a time that God is trying to strengthen and bless His people to become the Powerful Warriors He needs us to be, we must change this! We must
TALK TO GOD FROM OUR HEARTS! NO CLICHE'S OR VERBIAGES ALLOWED!



God wants to hear our hearts! He wants us to bare our souls! He wants us to confess our sins! He wants us to confess our fears! He wants us to confess our doubts! He wants us to ask for His help in times of trouble! Knowing and admitting that we cannot make it without Him! Yes! He wants to hear our cries of despair! And when He rescues us, He wants to hear and feel our celebration!! Which is our thanks, praise and worship!

God wants our communication with Him to be honest and true! Not superficially filled with repetitious words we have learned. He does not want a time of  clichés and verbiages, but He wants a time of heart felt, intimate, passionate, true communication. A time of prayer when we as His people truly come humbly and honestly...open and ready to hear, and listen, as well as speak! 
TALK TO GOD FROM YOUR HEART! Cry out to Him from the depths of your soul! Forget the clichés and stop the verbiages. They hinder the answers to your prayers!
GOD WANTS REAL TALK! ONLY THEN WILL WE BEGIN TO SEE:
~ Real Deliverance!
~ Real Power and Anointing!
~ Unhindered answers to our prayers!
~ Situations, Stumbling blocks, Chains, Curses from Witchcraft, and Unrighteous prayers, Generational curses, Wicked assignment, Sinful ways, and habits, Lust, Envy, Jealousy, Loneliness, Stress, Fear and Doubt.....DESTROYED!!! DESTROYED!!! DESTROYED!!! BY THE BLOOD OF JESUS!!!!
TALK TO GOD FROM YOUR HEART! HE WILL HEAR AND ANSWER YOU!

YOU'RE NOT A PIECE IN THAT PUZZLE!

     I am writing this to encourage those of you that may feel like you do not "fit in", or are not accepted by people. (Lately, I have been hearing this from people directly and indirectly),whether it's at work, with family, or in the church. Many of you may feel rejected, left out, ignored and disliked, even misunderstood...although you strive to love and help others, minister to the need of others, intercede for  them, and are in place as a confidant, and even a friend! But your efforts and desires to be accepted, just don't seem to work out, no matter how hard you try!


     I'm talking to those of you that sit back and see others group together, work together, and socialize together, and from the outside, it all looks so wonderful! Which causes you to want to become a part of what you see. So you make an effort to "fit in"...But, when it does not work out, you begin to doubt who you are, you begin to loose focus on your gifts and talents...and even your Call! The enemy starts to make you ask questions like, "What's wrong with me?", "Am I good enough?" or "Why don't people like me!?" Does this sound familiar? It is very familiar to me! Because I have felt the same way...and honestly, sometimes the enemy still brings this feeling my way!

     This is what the Lord said to deliver me, and give me the strength to overthrow those thoughts and feelings:
 
YOU'RE NOT A PIECE IN THAT PUZZLE!
 
     That puzzle being what the enemy is using to distract, discourage, and destroy you! All because he knows, without a doubt, who you are in GOD! The Lord showed me this...
A puzzle is something that confuses or test ingenuity. And, ingenuity is the quality of being cleverly inventive or resourceful. It also  means skill in planning. It means nobility, and being noble means, "illustrious (brilliantly outstanding), aristocratic (upper class), and stately (having impressive dignity). It means of outstanding character."
 
     The reason you don't "fit in" is because where you are trying to fit, is a puzzle created by the enemy, to STOP you from being and walking in the GOD GIVEN ABILITY, which is the ANOINTING to be INVENTIVE AND RESOURCEFUL!  The puzzle is designed to STOP you from being SKILLED to work your Ministries,  Business, or even Lead, all because of poor planning...YOU CAN'T HEAR FROM GOD, BECAUSE OF WHERE YOUR FOCUS IS, fitting in! The enemy wants to keep you from being ILLUSTRIOUS (especially in your own eyes), And he makes you feel like you are BENEATH INSTEAD OF ABOVE ONLY...And... he wants you to LOSE THE IMPRESSIVE DIGNITY YOU HAVE BECAUSE YOU BELONG TO THE KING OF KINGS!
 
     But today, your mind is going to be renewed...if you let it! Because God said,
 
YOU'RE NOT A PIECE IN THAT PUZZLE!
 
     This is who you are: 1 PETER 2:9, "BUT YE ARE A CHOSEN GENERATION, A ROYAL PRIESTHOOD, AN HOLY NATION, A PECULIAR PEOPLE; THAT YE SHOULD SHOW FORTH THE PRAISES OF HIM WHO HATH CALLED YOU OUT OF DARKNESS INTO HIS MARVELLOUS LIGHT..."

You are DIFFERENT, child of God! That means you are Distinct! Unusual! Not alike in quality or character of another!
 
You are PECULIAR! Which means, STRANGE AND UNCOMMON TO THE WORLD! And especially remember this part of the definition...YOU BELONG EXCLUSIVELY TO A "PERSON", OR GROUP! Meaning you belong to "THE PERSON, GOD ALMIGHTY!" AND YOU ARE IN A GROUP THAT HAS BEEN BLOOD WASHED!
 
So when you don't fit in, don't be discouraged and stop trying! It is for a reason...

 
YOU'RE NOT A PIECE IN THAT PUZZLE!

But you ARE a piece of GOD'S HEART, and in HIS PERFECT PLAN! Find YOUR place, and stay there.

HAVE YOU SEEN THESE TWO DANGEROUS SPIRITS?

     Earlier today, the Lord spoke the word "PESSIMISTIC" to me! I immediately looked it up, to be sure I had the correct understanding of the word. Right away, the Lord began to minister to me.

     The word Pessimism means, "Inclination to expect the worst. The tendency to see, anticipate or emphasize only bad or undesirable outcomes, results, conditions, problems, etc.

     He showed me that when a you have a pessimistic spirit, it is accomplied by the spirit of fear. Fear is the spirit that invites pessimism into your life, and the two then becomes one. The door was opened to fear, when you experience years of bad, hurtful, disappointing, frightening, horrible things in your life. To the point that you expect things to go badly, even when they appear to be, and are truly good. This can even be true in the life of a Believer, who does not recognize the spirit of fear in their life, because of the ability of the enemy to deceive!
 
 

     I want to let you know what the Lord said to me:
 "YOU CAN NOT SAY YOU WALK IN FAITH, AND RECIEVE MY BLESSINGS IF YOU ARE PESSIMISTIC. YOU CAN NOT BE FULL OF MY SPIRIT, AND HAVE THE SPIRIT OF FEAR, TOO. FOR MY WORD  TELLS  YOU, GOD HATH NOT GIVEN YOU THE SPIRIT OF FEAR; BUT OF POWER, AND OF LOVE, AND OF A SOUND MIND.

     WHEN YOU LIVE WITH FEAR AND PESSIMISM, YOU HINDER MY BLESSINGS FROM FLOWING FREELY IN YOUR LIFE! IT SAYS TO ME THAT YOU DO NOT TRUST ME, MY WORD AND THE PROMISES I HAVE SPOKEN TO YOU, BECAUSE YOU ARE HOLDING ON TO THE YOKES I HAVE BROKEN OFF OF YOUR LIFE FROM YOUR PAST...WHICH PREVENTS ME FROM DESTROYING THEM!

     AS YOU HEAR MY VOICE, AND REPENT, I AM DESTROYING THE SPIRITS OF FEAR AND PESSIMISIM OFF OF YOUR LIFE!! NOW, YOU ARE FREE TO RECIEVE AND ENJOY ALL THE PROMISES I HAVE SPOKEN OVER YOUR LIFE! THE PLACES THAT THOSE DANGEROUS SPIRITS ONCE OCCUPIED, ARE NOW FILLED WITH MY SPIRIT!! YOU ARE FREE...INDEED!

All I can say is THANK YOU LORD!!! This is how the Holy Spirit told me to pray today...to only give thanks to God for EVERYTHING He has done and for what He is doing...so I did just that! Not knowing that My Father was going to show me an area of my life that needed to be addressed to release an outpouring of blessings!!!!! Chains have been broken, yokes have been destroyed, and blessings have been released, TODAY! Look at yourself in the mirror and tell the enemy...
 
 
     You may ask why I'm sharing this with you...I'm sharing this with all of you, because the Lord said, this is an issue for MANY in the body of Christ!! These spirits ARE DANGEROUS to the Believer, and have no respect of persons...These spirits are HINDERING SPIRITS, THAT NEED TO BE CAST OUT OF THE LIVES OF GOD'S PEOPLE!! And if you are thinking, "How can this be happening in the lives of believers!"... GO BACK TO THE BEGINNING OF THIS POST AND READ IT SLOWLY. These are spirits sent by the enemy, and YOU MAY HAVE SEEN THEM, TOO! If so, you can be free! Just allow the Lord to work in your heart and in your life!!

THE TIME FOR BREAKTHROUGH, IS NOW!!!

     Have you noticed that, sometimes we talk about God moving in our live as if He has to prepare Himself to deliver us, or figure out what we need and when we need it, and even how to do it?! We say things like, "I'm waiting on my deliverance", or "I really need a breakthrough!" Forgetting all the promises in the Word of God that address everything we need and can possibly go through in this life!

     Today, the Lord spoke to my heart concerning "Breakthrough." and I want you to know, THE TIME FOR BREAKTHROUGH, IS NOW!! All we have to do is PRAY, BELIEVE, AND ASK IN THE NAME OF JESUS!

MAT. 21:22 SAYS, "AND ALL THINGS, WHATSOEVER YE SHALL ASK IN PRAYER, BELIEVING, YE SHALL RECEIVE."
JOHN 14:13-14 SAYS, "AND WHATSOEVER YE SHALL ASK IN MY NAME, THAT WILL I DO, THAT THE FATHER MAY BE GLORIFIED IN THE SON.
14- IF YE SHALL ASK ANYTHING IN MY NAME, I WILL DO IT."
     So we are clear about what "Breakthrough" is, here is the definition: Breakthrough is an act or instance of removing or surpassing an obstruction or restriction. It is any significant or SUDDEN advance, development, or achievement or increase that removes a barrier to progress. This is what God want for us, RIGHT NOW!!

     THE TIME FOR BREAKTHROUGH, IS NOW!! We must BELIEVE God can, will, and desires to give us a breakthrough in every area it is needed! HE'S WAITING ON US! So ...lets do what we have to do, to get what we need from the Lord, NOW!! LET'S PRAY, BELIEVE, AND ASK IN THE NAME OF JESUS!

LORD, IN THE NAME OF JESUS, ANOINT ME FOR BREAKTHROUGH!! (IS.61). LET ME EXPERIENCE BREAKTHROUGH IN EVERY AREA IN MY LIFE!
LET EVERY OBSTACLE, RESTRICTION, BARRIER, MOUNTAIN, STUMBLING BLOCK, WALL, AND EVERY HINDERING SPIRIT, BE REMOVED, NOW, IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST THE LORD, SO THAT I WILL ADVANCE, DEVELOP, INCREASE, PROGRESS, AND ACHIEVE YOUR WILL FOR MY LIFE!
I DECLARE, ACCORDING TO MICAH 2:13, THAT THE LORD MY BREAKER GOES BEFORE ME! SO IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST THE LORD, I PRAY AND BELIEVE THAT YOU WILL CAUSE ME TO BREAK THROUGH IN:
MY FINANCES, MY HEALTH AND HEALING, MY RELATIONSHIPS, MY MINISTRIES, MY ANOINTING AND CALLINGS, MY PRAISE AND WORSHIP, MY GIVING, MY CAREER, MY MARRIAGE, MY PRAYER LIFE, MY OBEDIENCE, MY SERVICE, MY EMOTIONS, MY FAITH, AND FAITHFULNESS, AND IN THE POWER OF THE HOLY GHOST!!
BY FAITH I PRAY THIS PRAYER! I BELIEVE YOUR WORD, AND HEBREWS 11:30 SAYS, "IT WAS BY FAITH THAT THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL MARCHED AROUND JERICHO SEVEN DAYS, AND THE WALLS CAME CRASHING DOWN." (NLT).
I BELIEVE, THE TIME FOR BREAKTHROUGH, IS NOW!! IN THE NAME OF JESUS, AMEN!!
