Demons In the Workplace


demons in the workplace

“Because we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against authorities, against the world-rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual matters of wickedness in the heavenlies. Because of this, take up the complete armour of Elohim, so that you have power to withstand in the wicked day, and having done all, to stand.” (Ephesians 6:12,13).
We should get that although we do struggle against spiritual forces of unrighteousness. It is the case that we should also get that we fight demon possessed people. Oh, nobody wants to admit that their mother, father, kids and other people we deal with are demon possessed. In fact, we are so caught up in television and what media portrays as demon possession that we can’t see that people we deal with everyday are demon possessed. It is the case that people dont have to be vomiting green slime to be so.
Because we do wrestle with this phenomena unseen we should be quick if we are truly called as we say to recognize evil when it is before us, and know this is not a game or one of the silly arguments we have with someone, but evil.

Notice, Ephesians 6:5, starts out with telling servants to obey their Masters. Well that verse will throw someone’s mind off if they have not renewed thinking. We know today people are not slaves in the sense of chains, however, someone is a slave to the god of their world. Hence, are most like that which we follow or think like. For this occasion, this speaks of (for example) someone in the workplace. Therefore, we are servants doing a service for that place. Simple, not difficult at all. However, the problem is not going to work, but working for people who are not set apart. This says, that we might work for people who are unethical, dishonest, liars, and this is difficult for one who has come from among this type thinking. It is not the case of going to work and doing our jobs, but about going to work and doing our job in righteousness. This means trouble if one is walking in TRUTH. BATTLE!

This is why the word proclaims, “Put on the entire armor of Yahwah.” Because without the ENTIRE suit, we are tempted to give in. We cannot fight if we are not walking in truth. So look at this, “Servants, obey your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in sincerity of heart, as to Messiah; not with eye-service as men-pleasers, but as servants of Messiah, doing the desire of Elohim from the inner self,” (Ephesians 6:5,6).

In this instance, we see that again we might choose to give in and do as they wish, or stand for truth. Choose wisely.
Today: Ask yourself, Where is my head at? Am I doing and speaking righteousness even at work? If not change that. Say, no matter what I am for truth! Today I will break from unethical thinking, lies and hypocrisy by speaking and living truth in my workplace.

Take Courage!

Something else that is not new


house on the sandAs I was reading the letter from the white guy who said, in other words, blacks are still slaves. I was really hurt, but never did get angry though because of the way it was written. It is the case that tone played a huge part in that; or, it could be growth in the area of accepting truth. Whatever, the case, I got it; that is, black people look down on each other because of stuff we acquire, and it’s nothing new. 

In James 1, there is much time spent speaking of asking for wisdom, because without it we can find ourselves in some rough places. He writes, “If any of you lack wisdom let as of Elohim…” doesn’t say run and ask bff and the boys, but to ask the right Source for it. Conversely, we seek out advice from the wrong people, because we are hung up on looks. Hence, she is a Psychiatrist, He’s a Pastor, they have a Doctorate, or a Master of Divinity and so on.

Let it be known today that outward looks kill spirits. Therefore, all the aforementioned titles look good on one’s resume’, however, what about wisdom? We must know there is no way to fight without it.

About wisdom he says, “Let the lowly brother boast in his exaltation, but the rich in his humiliation, because as the flower of the field he shall pass away. For the sun rose with burning heat, and withered the grass, and its flower fell, and its pretty appearance perished. So shall the rich man shall fade away in his ways. (v.9-11).

You know what, with all happening I am happy to walk where I walk now. Let me tell you, someone keeps reminding me that if it had not been for a certain someone I dealt with early on; I could have been finished with school and so on…but I tell you what, I would not know what I know now, see what I see, and have the wisdom I have; nor would I have been called out from the madness of thinking I need more money, to get rich to be righteous. I boast then in my exaltation because I can make it through….and stand the test.

What about it? The testing. James continues and says, “Blessed is the man who does endure trial, for when he has been proved he shall receive the crown of life which the Master has promised to those who love Him.”

People out there chasing money are missing out on true relationship with Yahwah. Oh, we believe that petty giving in offering, dressing up our sin is making up for it…and that it is Yah who blesses with stuff.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Satan blesses with toys, Yah blesses with wisdom. Get that way down in your spirit. We can remember Kanye Wests’ statement about selling his soul for a “few toys and a happy meal.”

The Scriptures are clear, we cannot serve two Masters…

Who do you serve?

For your hearing:

” Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine, and does them, shall be like a wise man who built his house on the rock, and the rain came down, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock. “And everyone who hears these words of Mine, and does not do them, shall be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand, and the rain came down, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and they beat on that house, and it fell, and great was its fall.” And it came to be, when יהושע had ended these words, that the people were astonished at His teaching,
for He was teaching them as one possessing authority, and not as the scribes.” (Matthew 7: 24-29)

When they Lie, Continue with the Example


Psalm 108:13

 With God’s help we will do mighty things,
for he will trample down our foes.
“Do our prayers end with requests for help to make it through stressful situations? David prayed not merely for rescue, but for victory. With God’s help we can claim more than mere survival-we can claim victory! Look for ways God can use your distress as an opportunity to show his mighty power.” (The Life Application Bible Study)
One of the worst wars to be in is living with a person who cannot tell the truth. There must be purpose to every life so I consider it a blessing this morning to know that God has purposed me for the great task of being an example of what truth is; however, it is not my truth that is in question when it comes to others people’s lies. It is God who purposed me to bring his truth to the forefront of the matter.
Many people like to use Proverbs 6:19 when speaking of false tongues. I have found myself claiming that many times for someone else, and as I write this message for you I must consider that since God does hate a false tongue, a lying tongue a person who sows discord, then he hates me  too, when I am messy, when I lie and hard to get along with. Right, so it is not the case that I need ever to take the word of God to dangle over someones head; even the liar.
Really, I tell you without a shadow of a doubt I hate to be lied to, and I hate it even worse when someone stands there and continually welds that lie despite the fact that the truth is showing up; yea, you have been caught.
Obviously, there is a problem, either, the person has a problem because they are the ones lying; or, it is my response to the lie in them.
Ah! The “lie” in them which presents the problem for me. (The Lying Spirit, see my notes).
We have to know that under normal circumstances or when one becomes saved that those things contrary to the word of God; get attention. In fact, if we are a liar then chances are we are going to stick out like a sore thumb among many healed thumbs. It is not the case that anyone has become so holy that we don’t mess up; however, the “Spirit of Truth” is going to step in front of the lie before we even speak it out…most times.
So here I am thinking some outlandish, off the wall lie to tell someone and I believe it first that someone else is ignorant to the “lie” in me, and I speak it. Paul, gives this wisdom and says, “14 We know that the Law is spiritual; but I am a creature of the flesh [carnal, unspiritual], having been sold into slavery under [the control of] sin.15 For I do not understand my own actions [I am baffled, bewildered]. I do not practice or accomplish what I wish, but I do the very thing that I loathe [which my moral instinct condemns].

16 Now if I do [habitually] what is contrary to my desire, [that means that] I acknowledge and agree that the Law is good (morally excellent) and that I take sides with it.

17 However, it is no longer I who do the deed, but the sin [principle] which is at home in me and has possession of me.

18 For I know that nothing good dwells within me, that is, in my flesh. I can will what is right, but I cannot perform it. [I have the intention and urge to do what is right, but no power to carry it out.]

19 For I fail to practice the good deeds I desire to do, but the evil deeds that I do not desire to do are what I am [ever] doing.

(Romans 7: 14-19)

Confront the lying spirit in me first and then them. Of course, someone will say, “But they are the ones with the problem!” Well, yes they are; however their problem has nothing to do with our response to the lie, because we know that Satan is the father of lies. Why are we acting contrary to the word and acting in Bitterness, Resentfulness, Unforgiveness…? We have to confront our own lies first which cause dissension as well.
Stop arguing and start speaking truth in love that will save us and. The redeemed of the Lord are speaking up, and fighting the Good fight of faith.If someone needs help, it is up to us to be an example of what truth really is…will you pray?

Father God in the name of Jesus we come to bind the spirit of lies in anyone we call husband, wife, son, daughter, friend, and most of all self…we bind that spirit causing dissension in us and in them and send it to the pits of hell where it belongs. We loose peace, sound thinking, wisdom of your word to handle this thing through prayer and supplication we want to make our requests known so that we can be healed once and for all. God we need more love, more joy, more kindness, and long suffering. We thank you Lord for these trials that will produce the patience we need to stand, to continue on in prayer, to not give up on these people who you will one day work healing in and through to bring glory to your name. We thank you Lord for the opportunity to improve and expand in areas of lack,,,thank you God for the hearing of your word which sheds light to us. Today, we give you praise. In Jesus name we pray and ask it all. Amen.
