Released from a Spirit of ASSAULT

We see that these four end time spirits: 1). a Spirit of STUPOR; 2). a Spirit of CONFUSION; 3). a Spirit of ASSAULT; 4). a Spirit of TERRORISM – build upon one another…resulting in havoc and chaos, personally, nationally, and globally…inside and outside the boundaries of Christianity.

 
162833342748006852_TAXR9O4O_fThink of it! Word of this came in the early 90s, and the last 26 years have been FULL of these evil and reckless spirits…running rampant and unbridled over the earth. They have especially grown in strength in America; and today, we are living to see the evidence of their strike and are living with the consequences of the fact that they were not bound and stopped by the church when the call FIRST went out for us to do so. As a result, they established strongholds in the lives and hearts of people on the earth and even in America which was founded upon many Christian principles.

 
The mainstream news media is a polluted well which continually churns up these spirits listed above…and especially, the spirit of ASSAULT. “Spin” (which is a dressed up word for lying) has become acceptable fare in this wicked business. Attack, verbal abuse and assault, argument, violent debate, yelling matches, total lack of respect of righteousness and truth…all these are given free rein and have even become a very “popular form of entertainment” 24 and 7 on cable TV…globally. The roar from this continual din of lies is the “intercession of hell!” Always tempting, biting at and seeking to devour the undiscriminating listener. Verbal pollution is one of the enemy’s main tools to spread his agenda in these end times.

 
Evil becomes established when good men and women sit calmly by and do nothing…especially in the unseen spiritual realm.

 
We MUST wake up! Become aware! Arise and get up! Be alert! Sound the Alarm about such things…FIRST to ourselves, in our own walk with the Lord, then then to all people everywhere! And we must RESIST any form of these behaviors attempting to work through our own lives and families.

 
A SPIRIT of ASSAULT: a sudden violent attack; unlawful physical attack upon another; to assail; to attack verbally, as with arguments, criticism, or abuse; intent to hurt and harm; to beset and attack on all sides, to surround, hem in with words or conflictual actions; clamor – loud quarreling. An attitude of total disagreement; hostility.

 
In all these definitions, we find the word “attack”; to set upon in a forceful, violent, hostile or aggressive way with or without a weapon, to begin fighting, to accuse, blame, or criticize severely, abuse verbally, try to harm, undermine or destroy, especially with verbal abuse; to devour with words; to consume destructively. (Ephesians 4:29-32 contains God’s admonition against such evil speaking.)

 
Satan is a thief, and we know that his purpose is to do nothing BUT to “steal, kill, and destroy” (John 10:10). Destruction of God’s kingdom, His people, their unity, and any attempt of a Christian to live like Jesus is his target. He tempts us with evil continually…to think evil…so that we will speak evil…and follow through with evil actions. We are NOT to cooperate in any manner with him or his schemes. The Word of God admonishes us.

 
“If you bite and devour one another, beware lest you be consumed by one another,” Galatians 5:15

 
“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary, the devil, walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour! RESIST HIM!” 1 Peter 5:9-10

 
Our Omniscient (all knowing) God knew that in these end times, these spirits would be unleashed by the enemy of the Cross and the enemy of our souls. He knew that the enemy, himself, would attempt to cause this spirit of ASSAULT to influence God’s people to “bite and devour” one another through such actions as described above. He has made provision through the Blood of Jesus, the infilling of His Holy Spirit, the power of His Name, and the whole armor of God to not only protect us IN such attacks, but also to deliver us FROM being those through whom the enemy works to bring on such attacks against others.

 
May we NEVER be found yielding to such wickedness. Yet, the enemy “walking about as a roaring lion” still tempting God’s people today to “take his bait” and be pawns in his scheme to verbally “bite and devour” other people…other Christians…other people in our lives.

 
If it were not possible, the Lord would not have warned us in Ephesians 5 of the possibility. In verse 9, He plainly tells us to RESIST this one who is like a “roaring lion”! We must FIRST, submit ourselves to God to receive His power to RESIST this power of the enemy. Do NOT give in to his evil desires…do NOT be a tool in his plans of attack and assault on other people, verbally or otherwise. “SUBMIT yourselves, therefore, to God; RESIST the devil and he will flee!” James 4:7

 
Life is precious. People, though often misguided, may be used as “agents” of “assault” upon us; yet, we are to know that underneath such behavior is a person Jesus Christ died for. He loves them and wants us to love them, too, and turn the “other cheek”, so to speak, (Matthew 5:39). ONLY by the power of the Holy Spirit as we walk in continual forgiveness may we see past destructive behavior in others and not be tempted to respond in like manner…thus giving in to the spirit of ASSAULT. Though you may be verbally assaulted, you do not have to assault back in the same manner.

 
Most of us would never consider physically harming another person, (though there are people who have and who would.) But here, I am focusing mostly upon the verbal assault with which many Christians attack one another – to their face or behind their back. We must not consider these forms any more than we would lift up a physical weapon against others; for attacking “words” bring destruction. When anyone “bites and devours” with assaulting words, it not only hurts and divides, it brings destruction of relationships and the unity in the Body of Christ our Lord calls us to. It brings division in families, friendships, and among masses of people.

 
In the layering of these spirits, we clearly see that those who give in to spirits, of STUPOR and CONFUSION, continue on in the deception to freely ASSAULT and ATTACK others verbally and sometimes, physically. All demonstrations of such things are destructive and hinder and block the building of God’s Kingdom on earth as it is in Heaven.

 
Many consequences come from this spirit of ASSAULT…including: betrayal, divorce, broken relationships, oppressive hardships, failure, sickness, death, poverty, and ruin. Nations, as well as individuals do this; they give in to these spirits and then unleash destruction on one another in every conceivable form. ASSAULT is the precursor to WAR and all its destruction!

 
JESUS CHRIST…the TRUTH, the LIFE, and the WAY has come for the explicit purpose to dispel ALL spirit of stupor, confusion, assault, and terrorism! He spoke and declared with great AUTHORITY saying, “If you abide (live, stay, remain, continue) in My Word, you are My disciples indeed. AND you shall KNOW the truth, and the truth shall MAKE you FREE!” (John 8:31-32) There is no doubt about it…no confusion about the TRUTH of this statement found in John! It is ETERNAL!

 
May we each humble ourselves before Him and pray from Job 34:32: “ ‘Teach ME, Lord, what I do not see. If I have done wrong…I will do it NO MORE!’ I repent! Convict and release me, O God! Deliver me from ANY of the effects or practices of this spirit of ASSAULT! May my tongue be a wellspring of life and NOT bring forth destruction. Spirits of assault…BE GONE! In Jesus’ Name! May my environment be cleansed of ANY spiritual assault and may my speech be pure and holy!”

 
“Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report; if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy, meditate on these things!” Philippians 4:8
