Warning: Watch What's At Your Door - Guarding Against the Spirit of Offense


Not sure who this is for, but you have to rebuke the devil. I'm seeing a test where the devil is trying to come through the spirit of offense and he might do it in 1 of 3 ways or all 3:

1. He attacks your income: By outright taking what's yours, it puts you immediately on the offensive because you need money to pay bills, buy groceries, etc. We come against this devil and cancel his assignment. We rebuke satan at the root. May he wither and die. Be on guard so you do not over react, meaning, if the devil tries to attack your finances, what what you say because he can say "Oh, there was just an error in payroll," but your mouth can get you in trouble or fired if you speak the wrong thing - even if you were justified.

2. He attacks your character: The devil might say that while you're a good person, your performance is lacking or he might make false accusations against you. To combat this, keep reading your Bible and stay encouraged. Remember, the devil is the accuser of the brethern so any attack against you is satan. Jesus doesn't condemn for it is written, "There is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus." Stay on guard and stand firm, know who and whose you are. Don't fall for the trick or get tied up in defending yourself.

3. He tries to get you tied up in chains (too much work that leads to exhaustion): Another area to be careful of is being tied in chains that overwhelm you so you'll give up and die. This is straight from the enemy, so please recognize it. The devil may try to overwhelm you with so much work, or "fake" work where it's things that you already completed but your boss says it wasn't good enough to keep you behind. We pray against this and cancel the devil's assignment. Remember, God has a hedge of protection around you.

It's a HUGE test that you have to be prepared for because it's meant to quickly undermine you, attack your character and exhaust you. The devil wants people to give up and throw in the towel, but don't fall for it. This happened to me on an old job.

I was working for a writing company and the owner didn't like me so she tried to undermine me, attack my character, block my writing, send fake writing projects so I would be rejected, but I knew I was already "accepted" by God. Who the Son sets free is free indeed. I prayed against the attacks and while it was hard because my credibility was being attacked, I got a "So what" in my spirit, meaning, so what the devil said this, what God says is what I go by." Long story short, the woman lost huge contracts in her writing business  and the company is now closing.

God is a Just God and know that despite what the enemy is trying to do, God is with us. God said, "When you pass through the waters, I will be with you," and Bishop T.D. Jakes had an awesome Word about this. He said that what YOU don't realize is that when YOU go through this trial, i.e., the waters that you pass through, as water represents the Holy Spirit, YOU are coming through, but your enemy is not. That's where God steps in with His hedge of protection that He has around you and says, "No, not my child. Not this time." Look at what happened with Puerto Rico.

People were starving in Puerto Rico and the government wouldn't help them fast enough. One thing God can't stand is when people take advantage of another person's weakness. God HATES that and God is just. While people think they can take advantage of you and it might look like they are winning, don't worry. The table that's being set is for you!

Trust and know that God is there. Keep speaking life in your life, don't get discouraged, but stay encouraged, and keep giving 100%. At just the right time, God will deal with your enemies and you'll turn around and won't see them anymore. To God be the glory!
