JESUS PLEASE REBUKE THE EVIL SPIRIT OF PASSIVE AGGRESSION IN THE CHURCH.
JESUS PLEASE REBUKE THE EVIL SPIRIT OF PASSIVE AGGRESSION IN THE CHURCH. Folks, it’s time to rip-off the bandaid.
This post is to encourage the God-fearing, Bible-literate, prophetic, discerning, on fire believers and to warn the lukewarm, cold, pagan, worldly church.
Over the last several weeks I keep encountering on fire Christians who are telling me their heart wrenching stories on how they are being isolated, discriminated and rejected by other members within the body of Christ. Recently, a brother in the LORD by the name of Larry, told me that the church that he goes to rejects him and his family because of their boldness and fire for Christ.
A sister in the Lord by the name of Julie, recently told me how she cries over the way some of the folks at her church treat her as well. She mentioned how some of them give her the cold shoulder, ignore her, look at her weird or try to intimidate or silence her because of her fire and boldness for Christ.
What the heck is going on?! Are we back in high school? Are we silently bullying our own especially God’s anointed with the hopes to get them to leave the church and never return because their fire, their anointing and their zeal for God and his word irritates the demons living inside many of us?
See, many “christians” will never tell you to “leave” the church to your face but they will try to get you to leave by attacking you through passive aggression.
A few weeks ago, another sister in the LORD by the name of Brie told me how some of the ladies at the women’s group at her church said “Brie, those messages from the LORD are too tough” with a snarky tone. Seeing Brie’s watery eyes telling me how these “christian” women reject her and her family through passive aggression broke my heart. The rejection has been so bad that Brie is considering to walk away from the church altogether.
Passive aggression: of or denoting a type of behavior or personality characterized by indirect resistance to the demands of others and an avoidance of direct confrontation, as in procrastinating, pouting, or misplacing important materials.
What are examples of passive aggressive behavior?
Other examples of passive-aggressive behavior might include avoiding direct or clear communication, evading problems, fear of intimacy or competition, making excuses, blaming others, obstructionism, playing the victim, feigning compliance with requests, sarcasm, backhanded compliments, and hiding anger.
In my 6 years of being saved and my 5 years of ministry as a servant of the LORD, I can personally attest to this demonic, toxic, behavior coming out of many so called “Christians”. Now it’s my turn to share my own personal experiences with all of you.
I’ll never forget how many Pastors like the one who baptized me when I got saved 6 yrs ago, unfriended me on Facebook because he and the other church leaders didn’t like the messages I kept posting from the LORD. How about the time, when 2 years ago, I joined a bible study group for a few weeks and the house church leader tried to oust me by reporting me to the Pastor (who’s a reprobate by the way) because the millennials in that group didn’t like the gospel being preached when it came to fornication and homosexuality. How about the time I got annihilated by "christian" women when I told them that bible says women must abide in God's order at home and at the church and that female pastors are not biblical based out of 1st Timothy? How about the time when I attended a prayer vigil in Buckhead and the LORD had me pray and prophesy repentance, holiness and the Fear of the LORD to a group of 50 people and only 10% of them came up to me because they were drawn by the fire of GOD while the remaining 90% including the church leaders exited the door like a bunch of classless snowflakes without saying a word. Oh yes my friends, the devil has taken many in the church hostage and because the church is so wrapped up in the lust of the flesh, they can’t even recognize a woman or man of GOD in their midst who’s warning them that “the kingdom of God is at hand” during these perilous, end times. (Jeremiah 25:4 And the LORD has sent all His servants the prophets to you again and again, but you have not listened or inclined your ear to hear.)
Let me tell you something, Christians can be just as vicious, mean and cruel like the non believing world! As a former nonbeliever, I can say that Christians are very similar to nonbelievers because we all have fallen short of the glory of God. Unfortunately, I’ve seen many who have a sense of godliness but they deny the power thereof just like the Pharisees during Jesus’ time on earth. Unfortunately, that demonic spirit still lingers to this day! (2 Peter 2:21 It would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than to have known it and then to turn their backs on the sacred command that was passed on to them.)
Red flag #1: The Christians who scream “GOD IS LOVE” tend to be the meanest.
Red flag #2: The Christians who scream “JUDGE ME NOT” tend be the most judgmental after all.
These folks can talk a good game on how GOD IS LOVE and HOW WE ARE TO LOVE EACH OTHER but by their fruits you will know and their fruits are usually rotten and wicked. In blatant terms, they are full of HOT AIR! (Matthew 15:8 "'These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me.)
Months ago, the LORD had me expose the demonic behavior of “being fake is practicing falsehood” which is prevalent in today’s society. You know those that wear a fake smile on their face and then they talk evil behind your back or roll their eyes as you leave? Or how about when they size you up when they speak to you? Or how about the infamous “bless your heart” statement which indicates their complete dislike or disapproval of you? Or how about the infamous “let’s hang out sometime” but “they’re too cool for school” so they’ll play these silly mind games trying to get you to think that by hanging out with them you’ve won a ticket to the jackpot.
(Revelation 21:8 But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”; Ephesians 4:25
Therefore, having put away falsehood, let each one of you speak the truth with his neighbor, for we are members one of another.)
See for those that do not know, here in the South there’s a culture of honor that continues to strangulate the truth and authenticity from people inside and outside the church. (The traditional culture of the Southern United States has been called a "culture of honor", that is, a culture where people avoid intentionally offending others, and maintain a reputation for not accepting improper conduct by others. )
To see this culture of honor infiltrate and spread among many within the church walls leads me to say that the Bible Belt HAS INDEED FALLEN! Yeah you heard that right! The belt of TRUTH has fallen to the floor and it’s time for the Bible Belt to repent, to pick it up from the floor and to put it back on. (Ephesians 6:14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place,)
In my 4 years of living in Atlanta, I’ve lost count how many Christians I’ve ministered to, telling me how they’ve left the church because they were disgusted with the deception, the worldliness, the foolishness, the marketplace, the entertainment, the slander, the gossip, the politics, the favoritism, the hypocrisy, the wickedness and the perversion they saw in the church and how they ran for the hills. As someone who cares about souls, do you have any idea how detrimental this truly is? How about the dire consequences we will have with God himself? (Matthew 18:6 “If anyone causes one of these little ones--those who believe in me--to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.) (1 Corinthians 5:11 But now I am writing to you that you must not associate with anyone who claims to be a brother or sister but is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or slanderer, a drunkard or swindler. Do not even eat with such people.)
Just like there’s a Starbucks in every corner in NYC, there’s a church in every corner in Atlanta and believe me when I tell you that many of these famous churches or ministries have zero to little anointing. Don’t believe me? Ask God to show you. Don’t believe me? Why don’t you spend 2 years driving around within a 30 mile radius searching for a church where God’s word and spirit rule and reign like I did upon moving here? I’ve lost count how many times I’ve cried on my way back home because the flock were being deceived with doctrines of demons that soothed the flesh and promoted the lust of the world. After much travail, let me tell you that finding a God-fearing onfire church was like finding a needle in a haystack! (1 John 2:16 For everything in the world--the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life--comes not from the Father but from the world.)
If many in the Bible Belt lack truth and righteousness, what does that say for the rest of this country? Have you seen how many Christians including church leaders keep compromising God’s word, his truth and his Holy Spirit for money, power, fame, or the praises of men? How about the politically correct and hyper sensitive “everything offends me” culture that has infiltrated the body of Christ and how there are members complaining to senior leadership that the preaching from the pulpit is offensive?
(Galatians 1:10 Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ.) (Matthew 10:27-28 Fear God Alone What I tell you in the dark, speak in the light; what is whispered in your ear, proclaim from the housetops. Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Instead, fear the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell. )
THIS IS WHY, IN THIS HOUR GOD HAS HAD ENOUGH AND HE IS ABOUT TO SHAKE THINGS UP! GOD IS ABOUT TO LIQUIDATE EVERY CHURCH AND MINISTRY THAT ISN’T HIS AND HE’S ALSO ABOUT TO SHUFFLE HIS LEADERS IN HIS HOUSE TOO! GOD IS ABOUT TO CHANGE THE STATUS QUO, HE’S ABOUT TO SWEEP THIS LAND AND HE IS GOING TO EXPOSE EVERY THING DONE IN SECRET ACROSS THIS NATION INCLUDING THE CHURCH.
For quite sometime, God has been preparing, equipping and training a powerful, anointed, bold, army of unknown, onfire Christians who are sold out for him, ready to release his word with the anointing, power, authority, unction and the fire of the Holy Spirit to uproot, to tear down, to build and to plant in the name of Jesus! The LORD is about to release this army like war horses ready to stampede the kingdom of darkness and to occupy positions of power and influence in the name of Christ. Whether the church likes it or not or whether the church is ready or not that is not God’s problem, he’s going to do it so we must repent and we must get ready!
(Jeremiah 1:10 See, today I appoint you over nations and kingdoms to uproot and tear down, to destroy and overthrow, to build and to plant.”) This army including many baby Christians are dropping scripture faster than a poet or an artist! Church, get ready because many of these onfire Christians will “Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage--with great patience and careful instruction” (2 Timothy 4:2)
So in closing, I would like to send hugs, prayers and love to the Christians who spoke life over me and who’ve showed me love, mercy, encouragement, biblical counsel, prayers and support over the years. Like you, I feel your pain and I honor your love for the LORD, your love for God’s people, your obedience to his assignment and the calling over your life and your unwavering and steadfast integrity and character as a child of God. There’s no falseness in you! You know who you are and I pray that God blesses you and your families in epic proportions so that everyone you know, will see the favor and faithfulness of GOD over your lives. For those who want to leave the church because of the rejection you’ve been facing, don’t unless God tells you! If your fire, your anointing, your unction, your presence irritates their demons or makes their eyes roll so be it. You are God’s child and the only approval you need is his and not men. Lift your head up high as a child of God, pray, bless, forgive and lead by example and most importantly let God deal or even rebuke them for coming against you. As the word says, let God fight your battles and believe me he sees, hears and knows everything and he jots everything down in his books. (Matthew 10:41 Whoever welcomes a prophet as a prophet will receive a prophet's reward, and whoever welcomes a righteous person as a righteous person will receive a righteous person's reward.)
I lift up every onfire man or woman of God, especially every onfire pastor, preacher and church leader to you. Father, “You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. (Psalm 139:2) you know their hearts, their thoughts and words even before they say it. Lord, you’ve seen how they continue to obey the following scripture “You will be hated by everyone because of me, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. (Matthew 10:22) and you’ve collected every tear of pain, rejection and long-suffering for your name’s sake. Lord, I pray that you grant them the peace, the grace and the strength as they continue to preach your word in truth and in spirit during these perilous times for these are the ones who have truly earned their crowns. Lord, I honor them and I pray a hedge of protection and a blessing over them and their families because you honor those who’ve honored you. Lord, I pray that you will open up doors, opportunities, platforms, positions of power and influence that will glorify your name and that you will remind them that without you they are nothing! That you will never change, that you have no favorites and that the same GOD who placed them in the palace and in the mountain, you are the same GOD who can flip it upside down should they become forgetful or prideful before you! Keep placing a sense of urgency in their hearts, minds and spirits so they can continue to warn, equip, and prepare your people through repentance and holiness for your very soon return. Lord I pray for healing, restoration, breakthrough, vindication, recompense, beauty for ashes and tears of joy over their lives! Lord I pray that no weapon formed against them shall prosper and every tongue that comes against them you will rebuke! Oh Lord, how I fear for the the worldly, Lukewarm, Cold Church in this hour! For your word says (Revelation 3:16:So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth; James 4:4 Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.” 1 Chronicles 16:22 “Do not touch my anointed ones; do my prophets no harm.”)
Woe unto the carnal, worldly, pagan, “lovers of this world” church who keep speaking ill and keep rejecting your anointed ones! (1 Thessalonians 2:14-16 For you, brethren, became imitators of the churches of God which are in Judea in Christ Jesus. For you also suffered the same things from your own countrymen, just as they did from the Judeans, who killed both the Lord Jesus and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they do not please God and are contrary to all men, forbidding us to speak to the Gentiles that they may be saved, so as always to fill up the measure of their sins; but wrath has come upon them to the uttermost.,)
Woe unto the carnal, lukewarm church that creates pain, gossip, slander, insecurity, doubt, unworthiness, favoritism, depression and the Fear of Man against your chosen, anointed vessels: the pastors, preachers, church leaders and other men and women of God. (Isaiah 5:20 Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.)
Lord for when they are rejecting your anointed, they are rejecting you and the Father! They are coming against the movement of your hand and your spirit! (Luke 10:16 “Whoever listens to you listens to me; whoever rejects you rejects me; but whoever rejects me rejects him who sent me.”)
Lord, who do these specks of clay think they are to quench your fire and constrict your power through your anointed vessels? (Micah 2:1 Woe to those who devise iniquity,And work out evil on their beds! At morning light they practice it, Because it is in the power of their hand.)
Lord I pray you please give the lukewarm, worldly church visions and dreams so they can repent before it’s too late. Lord you are holy, you are GOD on the throne and you will have your way. Thank you for cleaning and sifting your church between the wheat and tares, and the sheep and the goats. Let your will be done on earth as it is in heaven, in Jesus name I pray. Amen.
