Throughout the bible we see that many times the LORD’S people were oppressed, controlled or manipulated by their enemies. Their adversaries continually pursued them and tried to destroy their character, their anointing and in most instances they wanted to kill them. History is repeating itself, today there are people who want to silence believers’ voices and shut down their ministries. They don’t realize that the enemy is using them as a pawn.
There are spirits of jealousy, envy and hatred that are rampant throughout our land, but regardless, the LORD is continuing to raise up His anointed. The gates of hell will not be able to prevail against those who are ordained and chosen by the Lord Himself. Jesus has a host of angels intercepting the fiery darts of the enemy before then even touch us.
I was just reading an interesting dream that I had written down from a couple of years ago. In the dream I had a huge broken mirror. There were two people alongside of me and I asked them if they knew who broke it. I knew that it was them who did it, and I didn't understand why they would do that, but when I asked them, they denied it.
In the morning when I looked up the interpretation in a dream dictionary, I found that the mirror represented an image and reflection of ourselves. I then understood what the interpretation was. The Holy Spirit showed me that those two people had fractured souls (emotions), and they were trying to destroy my image.
In The Book of John, we read about Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead. In the very next chapter, we see that the religious people wanted to kill him again a second time. Be careful who you allow in your inner circle. Some people are listening to the whispers of the evil one. The enemy wants to remove you from your place of authority in Christ and he will use people.
The Lord is going to bring you friends who live a lifestyle of integrity. They will honor and respect you for who you are. They will be those who walk in humility and honesty. They are not seeking agendas apart from the will of God, and their desire is to do His will and walk in His anointing. You will be able to trust them with the deep secrets of your heart.
He’s going to connect you with those who carry His presence. They know the love language of the father. They walk in love regardless to how they are treated and esteem others higher than themselves. They understand spiritual encounters and will love to engage in conversations about their dreams and spiritual encounters. You could trust them to lay hands on you, because they are filled with the Holy Spirit.
They are warriors and know how to survive in the lion’s den. They have battled and won and will stand with you through difficult trials. They have been through the fiery furnace and not a hair on their head was singed. They will be used mightily in miracles, signs and wonders because they are anointed and not ashamed of the Word of God.
Ointment and perfume delight the heart, and the sweetness of a man’s friend gives delight by hearty counsel.
For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God,
1 Thessalonians 5:11
Therefore comfort each other and edify one another, just as you also are doing.
