The cost of grumbling

By Ministries of Francis Frangipane

Grumbling about life is not a little thing. Paul said the Israelites who grumbled in the wilderness were actually "destroyed by the destroyer" (1 Cor 10:10). Who or what is this demonic destroyer? It is a spirit named in Rev. 9: Abaddon (in Hebrew "destruction") and in Greek, "Apollyon" (destroyer). Whenever we grumble, our soul-life degrades and is "destroyed by the destroyer." Decide today to thank God “in everything.” Paul says “this is God’s will for you” (1 Thes 5:11). Thanksgiving is the language of faith; it is the fragrance of true worship.
