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."
