When people are nasty to you, remember you’re not fighting them, you’re fighting against the spirit operating behind them. The spirit that doesn’t want you to wake them up, the spirit that doesn’t want you to spread your God light to them. Don’t let that spirit win…Stay in a Godly stance, stay in love.
Then, if the situation doesn’t change. Pray for their soul. Pray that God opens their eyes, ears, and heart to him. Love your tormentors, but don’t fall to their level.
People have a lot of unresolved inner demons that they refuse to face, they will blame you for irritating those demons. You will become the enemy. Trust me, I get it a lot in this line of work. It’s getting really rough.
Don’t let people make you responsible for what they refuse to face, or see. Their burden is not yours to carry. Very soon, they will have to face those inner demons.
Work on your own inner demons, and make sure you’re not projecting yours on others.
Not everyone sees and appreciates God’s love, not everyone understands it. That my friends, is the great divide. Soon it will all make sense.
For it is written
No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
10 Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 11 Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. 12 Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you
But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.
Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.
3 Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; 4 perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5 And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.
1 The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons.
1 Timothy 4:1
Luke 21:36 NIV
36 Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man.”
2 Corinthians 11:13-15 NIV
13 For such people are false apostles, deceitful workers, masquerading as apostles of Christ. 14 And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. 15 It is not surprising, then, if his servants also masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve
2 Corinthians 4:4 NIV
4 The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.
Godspeed on your journey
