THE DEMONIC TRIO SLANDER GOSSIP OFFENSE
By Rhoda Collins
The devil has infected the Church with offense. He does it through slander and gossip.
How does a Christian fall into the devil’s trap? It goes back to Eve.
The word serpent means: divination (python)… while listening to the accuser, Eve was brought under a spell. Like Eve, there are millions of Christians who are also spell bound; meaning, that they are under satanic influence.
Slander is a form of witchcraft. Witchcraft means pharmacia; illicit drugs; putting people in an altered state of consciousness.
We have many “Pharmacists” in Christian circles, in schools, in families, amongst friends, acquaintances and co-workers. People who with their words of gossip and slander, poison other people, bringing them into an altered state of consciousness. Cursing them and themselves!
Who is in your ear that you listen to?
Slander and gossip affects what we see. With Eve, when she listened to the serpent, she saw God and the forbidden tree differently.
When we hear something negative about a person, it affects everything that we perceive about them. It alters our ability to see things clear. Slander has the power to stagnate your destiny and theirs. It’s a curse to the sender and receiver.
There is a vision of 2 believers outside of a church building gossiping with each other. There were 2 demons on each of their shoulders. The demons were whispering lies into their ears. They never questioned if what they were saying and hearing was true. As they begin to whisper to each other, they started to change. In the vision, each of the demons vomits on the believers. It looked like filthy slime. God was asked, “What is this?”
God said, “SLANDER GOSSIP AND OFFENSE. It is a substance from the underworld. It is a satanic substance that can keep people from fulfilling their destiny and it contaminates their spiritual life. It can affect your health.”
Many people don’t understand why they can’t obtain a healing, such as one woman who developed arthritis while going through a nasty divorce. She took offense, when she heard that her husband was saying nasty things about her. Finally, when she asked Jesus to set her free from offense, bitterness, and resentment, she was instantly healed. What we accept into our heart has tremendous ramifications upon our health.
Imagine walking down a dark alley. You can’t see anything in front of you and then you step on a viper that bites you. The Bible calls it a snare; a stumbling block. People don’t know why they aren’t healed; why they can’t have any joy; why their life is always in failure or a crisis. They’ve been saved for many years but yet have never fulfilled their calling. Their problem may be because they participate in slander and gossip and/or hold offense!
“But he who hates his brother is in darkness and walks in darkness, and does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes.”
1 John 2:11
The enemy wants us in darkness so we can’t see our purpose.
It’s been said that Satan moved out of the church a long time ago. That he hires hit men (and women) to do his bidding. Christians are unknowingly assassinating others and themselves. They don’t realize that they’re working for the enemy. There are mass murderers in “the church” working for satan right now! Do you know any? Are you one?
Proverbs 18:8 says, “The words of a whisperer (gossip) are like dainty morsels [to be greedily eaten]; They go down into the innermost chambers of the body [to be remembered and mused upon]”.
Satan is the only one who gains from slander, gossip and offense. We gain nothing from it.
YOU NEED TO AVOID CONVERSATIONS THAT ARE DEMONIC, THAT DON’T GLORIFY GOD, THAT DON’T REDEEM.
YOUR DESTINY DEPENDS ON WHAT YOU SPEAK AND HEAR. BE VERY PROTECTIVE OF THE WORDS THAT COME OUT OF YOUR MOUTH AND INTO YOUR EAR.
There are many people reading this that have been wounded and crippled by people leading and attending “church”. Al and I have been attacked many times with slander, gossip, backstabbing, talebearing (aka Christian witchcraft), from those who only ended up drinking their own poison. They brought curses upon themselves.
“Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither… slanderers… will inherit the kingdom of God.” 1 Corinthians 6: 9-10 (partial) NIV
A message for the ‘christian assassins’… stop gossiping and slandering, seek forgiveness from God and from those whom you’ve attacked. Retrieve your lost life and destiny!
For those who are suffering from stalled lives or health issues or depression that can’t be relieved from prayer, look to slander and gossip said against you that you don’t know about. Hidden curses are sent against people all the time, from Christians and non-Christians. There’s a testimony of a leader who had been an assistant at a certain assembly for years. When he set out on his own to another area across the city, the leader where he had been (his so-called ‘covering’) slandered him, because he didn’t want him to leave. This man’s life and ministry failed for years until he found out he’d been cursed by this other leader for over 10 years! When he broke the curses sent against him, his life and ministry recovered.
For those of you who harbor anger, bitterness, resentment and offense against those who have slandered and gossiped about you, let the offenses go. Forgive them and move past them. You don’t have to keep such people in your life. Forgiveness doesn’t mean compromise or reconciliation or withstanding mean people in our lives. Move on. Seek out encouragers, uplifters and equippers. Step aside and let God take care of your enemies. Don’t let the enemy steal your inheritance; your destiny!
For the severely traumatized and debilitated from slander and gossip, break any curses said against you and seek the Holy Spirit’s healing. Ask Him to assist your recovery and remove the trauma.
Don’t stay in a bed of affliction, of stagnation from ‘The Demonic Trio’-slander, gossip and offense. Don’t let the enemy defeat you. Rise up and fulfill your purpose in Jesus’ name!
