Summary: Few identify fear, worry, being offended, annoyance, frustration, depression, anxiety, stress and panic attacks as some of the best tools our enemy has in his tool box. Paul shakes the snake in the fire.
LAST DAYS SATANIC TOOLS: BEWARE
By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Kyfingers@aol.com
A LITTLE MORE OF JESUS AND A LITTLE LESS OF ME…
Hebrews 12:12 Wherefore lift up the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees; 13 And make straight paths for your feet, lest that which is lame be turned out of the way; but let it rather be healed. 14 Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord: 15 Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled;
ARE WE READY?
APPOINTMENTS ARE MADE? APPOINTMENT WITH DEATH AND THE JUDGMENT.
ARE WE GROWING IN RESENTMENT…?
Matthew 24:10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
Luke 21:26 Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. 27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.
COME LET US IDENTIFY LAST DAY SATANIC TOOLS OF THE LAST DAYS:
FEAR SEEMS TO PRODUCE WHAT IT IS AFRAID OF. Fear is contagious. Fear has tolerance, it requires more and more.
Fear has a snow ball effect.
*OFFEND: to cause wounded feelings, displeasure, anger, emotional –negative mental, spiritual state.
*ANNOY: To make someone angry.
*FRUSTRATION: The feeling of being annoyed or upset because you cannot change something.
*BITTERNESS: disappointment, unfair, resentment
*ANGER: to be upset, a strong feeling of hostility, displeasure or annoyance.
*ANXIETY: INTENSE AND EXCESSIVE FEELING OF UNEASINESS, worry or FEAR.
*PANIC ATTACKS: sudden episode of intense fear or anxiety, to perceive danger,
*STRESS: degree to which you feel overwhelmed or unable to cope as a result of pressure.
*WORRY: to allow your mind to focus on difficulty or trouble, to see the potential of problems, trouble.
*FEAR: an unpleasant feeling caused by seeing danger, pain, threat, dread, alarm, panic, agitation.
*LONELINESS: depression, sad feeling as one feels isolated,
*PAIN: suffering mentally, emotionally, spiritually, injury… ACUTE, CHRONIC,
*DISAPPOINTMENTS: sadness or displeasure caused by non-fulfillment of hopes and expectations, unhappy, someone did not do as I thought they should.
*PERSECUTION AS A CHURCH AND AS A INDIVIDUAL: hostility and ill treatment because of politics, religion or race…
ALL OF THE ABOVE ISSUES WILL CAUSE EMOTIONAL AND SPIRITUAL STRESS AND THE SYMPTOMS WILL GROW LIKE CANCER. ALL OF THESE ACCUMULATE WHEN WE REFUSE TO FORGIVE.
All of these reveal hidden hatred that in all honesty hurts the person holding these issues more than it hurts the individual IN WHICH YOU ARE MAD.
LET US BE REAL HONEST, THE ROOT OF ALL THE ABOVE LAST DAY TOOLS… MOST OF THE TRAITS ABOVE ARE IN THE ROOT SYSTEM, IT CAN NOT BE SEEN AT THE SURFACE LEVELS.
By passing over and over the same muddy paths we see RUTS DEVELOP. By walking the same old same old path. Who do you think you are fooling? Do you think bitter hearts breed bitter mouths?
Matthew 6:14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: 15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
It is my desire to know Jesus a little more. I desire to spend more time with Jesus and in prayer and in the Bible.
VENOM: POISON: PAUL’S LIFE JOURNEY TAKES MANY STRANGE TWIST… PAUL HAD WARNED THE CAPTAIN OF THE SHIP AND THE SOLDIERS DON’T SET SAIL… DO YOU HEAR ME? DON’T LEAVE THE HARBOR? WHY SHOULD WE LISTEN TO THIS CRAZY PREACHER?
Paul’s ship wrecked on a secluded island called Malta. It was a cold and rainy day. The people decided to build a fire to warm and dry themselves. It appears that the fire warmed up a very poisonous snake. The snake crawls out of the fire. THE SNAKE THAT BIT PAUL’S HANDS DID NOT WANT TO LET GO… THE VIPER FASTENED IT SELF TO PAUL’S HAND.
THE VENOM OF THE VIPER IS TOXIC, DEADLY. THE VENOM IS A POISONOUS SUBSTANCE THAT IS INJECTED BY FANGS. WE ARE BEING INJECTED BY MALICE, BITTERNESS OF OTHERS SPEECH, ACTIONS AND ATTITUDES.
THE LAST DAY VENOM IS CRUSHING AND KILLING THE CHURCH, WHAT DID PAUL DO? GET DEPRESSED? LISTEN TO THE OTHERS SPEAK JUDGMENT?
Acts 28:4 And when the barbarians saw the venomous beast hang on his hand, they said among themselves, No doubt this man is a murderer, whom, though he hath escaped the sea, yet vengeance suffereth not to live.
PAUL REFUSED TO ALLOW THE SATANIC TOOLS TO BE USED AGAINST HIM… PAUL REFUSED TO PANIC, BE DEPRESSED, WORRIED, IN FEAR, TO BE ANNOYED, FRUSTRATED, STRESSED… HE KEPT ON BEING FAITHFUL TO HIS WORK.
