There are other voices. Destructive voices. They are voices that may not say they are, but are voices prompted by the enemy of our souls. They are in fact the prophetic voices of satan himself.
Many good Christians hearing these voices will believe the lies and begin to fall into a web of deceit that leads them to destruction. IF they do not hear from God, if they do NOT put themselves in a place to be informed of his Spirit, they are targeted by the enemy. Many in high leadership are in exactly this place in the church. The greater the leader, the more he or she must hear HIS voice...thru others in confirmation in particular.
The word of GOD outlines the schemes of the Devil that are the same exact tools he uses today to discourage, defeat and derail Christians from their God given prophetic destiny. When you see or hear this in today's news, you will know it is satanic prophecy:
Mob rule killed Jesus. Tried to push him off the cliff. Tried to stone the woman caught in adultery. Mob rule is when you hear or see someone trying to stir up one group against another in anger or hatred. This is NOT GOD. This is a demonic influence. Watch carefully in the days to come near the election for those who will call themselves christian but who are actually manifesting the action of Mob Madness. It's demonic.
Jesus in the desert was tempted (which means he considered it) for fame, power and to avoid suffering. Satan USED the word of GOD to PROVE this to Jesus... Jesus was only able to resist BY the word of God. Many satanic prophets use God's word to convince people that they can shortcut their way to Fame, Power, Fortune and avoid difficulty. Wasn't true then, still isn't.
Adam and Eve were convinced to doubt God. Hath God Said? It's gong on today. Still. We hear what He says to us, and then immediately satan comes to steal the word from us. Remember the parable of the soils? It's what happened to Adam and Eve...and when you get a word from God what will happen to YOU. It's satan's prophetic word that brings doubt.
Judas thought he could speed things up. Satan deceived him into believing that IF he just hurried things along, Jesus would lead a revolution against the Romans. He was listening to the prophetic lie, "God needs your help, God needs you to take action because if you don't God can't move". YES God Does depend on us to carry out his will...but the deception comes when we do something that is prompted by a voice that says HURRY.
Confusion, "YES BUT" is what it sounds like. This satanic voice will argue rather then clarify. You will hear them and find yourself completely baffled. God is not the author of confusion...that is satans realm.
Accusation and condemnation come from the pit. When you find yourself accused or condemned, remember there is NO condemnation except that which comes from the pit of hell. Satan's job is to be the accuser of the brethren. SO, if you are going to be successful you must turn a deaf ear to the accusations and condemnations you hear. Don't listen to the prophecies of satan.
Reason over Faith in God is an old form of satanic deception. Paul almost convinced Festus but reason kept him from faith in God. Paul reasoned at Athens...but to little effect. You can not reason someone into faith. It is impossible. There is a corollary, it goes like this, IF I just understood the Bible better I could convince people to become Christians. While it is critical to know the word of God, we need to learn to trust HIM to provide the opportunities to lead people to faith...by his Spirit. Intimacy trumps scholarship every time. Some of the best Bible scholars are pagans.
Fighting against flesh and blood. Satan will continue to create strive between and among believers. One group against another. One race, one denomination, one creed. Each taking sides. Division. It expands to the world. Do you think the bloody sectarian riots you see around the world are anything LESS than a satanic plot? When you are tempted to fight back against flesh and blood, fight rather against the spirit that propagated the response. Our battle is NOT against flesh and blood.
To convince people to be and remain ignorant. When people refuse to keep informed about things happening all around them and how they relate to the deep long cycles of history, particularly as defined in the scriptures and prophetically, they live in ignorance. This is a particularly dangerous scheme of the devil. Getting people to simply write off warnings of things to come. Not in a Premillenialist form, but thinking those things can or will not ever happen again.
The name Satan means "adversary," someone who stands in opposition to you or your plans. Even if an adversary cannot stop your plans, he will derive great pleasure in causing a hindrance to your work. Satan's hindrances to God's work (gospel) can take on many forms, i.e., fear, intimidation, anxiety, discouragement, depression, despair, discontent, unforgiveness, the love of money, greed, covetousness, selfishness, the cares of this world, criticism, slander, gossip, envy, jealousy, and so on. Do you see a common thread? Yes, Satan will appeal directly to our corruptible flesh in order to hinder God's gospel message. Therefore, we must not allow our emotions or carnal reasoning to ever triumph over God's Word within our hearts.
One lie of satan is that if it offends someone's heart, it's not of God. That is not true. We should not intentionally go around trying to cause offense, but people are offended by the truth of God. Thumper's mom in the Walt Disney Movie said, "if you cant say something nice, say nothing at all". That means that in a world that hates the truth of God we will remain mum. We must be bold to speak, not with the intention of causing offense, but with the intention of bringing truth even rising offense sometimes. Be careful but, Nevertheless, to say the absence of offence should be our goal simply cannot be supported by Holy Scripture!
We must learn to say within our heart and in the power of the Holy Spirit, "Get behind Me, Satan (Adversary)! You are a stumbling block to Me; for you are not setting your mind on God's interests, but man's." You may say, "That's too hard brother!" But you must also remember, obedience is defined by doing something you do not wish to do! Hebrews 5:8: "Although He was a Son, He learned obedience from the things which He suffered."
Be willing to keep the bridge open between you and others...but do so in love. When you sever relationships, you sever the opportunity to bring truth in love. It happens more then we know that by our division it kills. Denominationalism is one such. It resulted in martyrdom long ago. This drove a wedge between them, which consummated in division, separation, and finally death. Therefore, we must not be found doing the same to each other by means of slander and gossip, as it would be an antithesis to our collective calling as ministers of reconciliation. 2 Corinthians 5:18-19: "Now all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ, and gave us the ministry of reconciliation, namely, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed to us the word of reconciliation."
We must not listen to a voice that calls us to split off from others in the Body of Christ. We can move on, but not in hatred or anger. Maintaining relationship must be the goal. When splits come..the come to destroy. Indeed what an insidious devilish scheme this is, as the evil one all ready knows! It's written in Luke 11:17, "Any kingdom divided against itself is laid waste; and a house divided against itself falls."
The protection we need is the full armor of God as expressed not just in Ephesians 6, but in 1 Corinthians 13. IF it doesn't pass the love test...it's satanic a it's root. We MUST be fully armed against all the schemes of the enemy that come as his words whispering in our ears.
