That is the word I heard in my spirit. “A match has been lit.” That match has unleashed the rage that has been simmering for months. It is a rage unleashed because of deception. I wrote previously about that rage here.
What we will see will bring fear to some, but it should not. Look with eyes of the spirit and see that these are spirits that are in play: Pride, Offense, Deception, Rage and then Insanity. It is not a battle against people but against what has taken hold of their minds and then their hearts. These are individuals full of passion and love for people and our country and feel in their hearts that they are acting with honor and doing their best to protect. Yet they have actually aligned themselves in a relationship with abusers and those who abuse power. But they can’t see it.
I heard the words, “Call down the abuse and the abusers.”
There are many in leadership positions who have abused their power as a weapon to control and for personal gain. Many have not seen it for what it is and so have actually embraced it. When we remain in relationship with the abuse we open ourselves to the abuse and deception blinds us from the truth. We have to call down the abuse and the abuser and call it out.
We have to pray for those firmly entrenched in the abuse and the control it has over their lives. It is time as never before to pray that their eyes will be opened to see the truth. The very nature of deception is the one deceived cannot see that they are in deception. The fact is we all can be blinded by this. The prayer is that the eyes of our understanding would be enlightened to know the hope of our calling.
Obadiah 1:3 says, “The arrogance of your heart has deceived you.” This is much pride operating here with this deception. When embraced we then believe with complete sincerity that “we are doing the right thing.” It is what gives deception an open door. It will then cause us to stand strong in a passion to be open and to embrace all things. It sounds good and right to stand for “authenticity,” “diversity,” “love.” Don’t we all? But that is not what it truly is. In actuality this deception has blinded many to see that they have embraced unrighteousness.
Compassion that doesn’t bring transformation is simply pity and deception in its highest form. Godly compassion brings transformation. Every time Jesus was moved with compassion and acted people came OUT of their sin and the pain of their past and were set free. That’s the key to watch for. –Karen Hardin
Compassion that operates from deception is a sincere passion but allows people to remain in their current position. It does not release transformation. And thus people will remain locked in their pain. The indicator to watch for is does the compassion bring transformation and truth. If the compassion does not bring transformation to healing and out of something it is deception.
Rage has been released that will birth insanity. We are about to see strange things take place we never thought we would see as people “passionately” stand for what they believe to be right and yet it is not. They will vehemently fight to keep the abuser in place because they can’t see truth.
Pray now that the blinders are removed. Pray that the revival fire of the spirit and purifying fire will burn off the chaff and deception and transform lives. When there is an encounter with Him everything changes.
It is time to pray fervently and not battle in the flesh. This is a battle of the spirit. Do not be confused in this hour. Much is at stake. It is the goodness of God that draws men to repentance. This will release revival, but it will be a bumpy road.
Stand and pray.
(Never think that you cannot be drawn into deception. EVERYONE can be drawn into deception when we open the door to either pride, jealousy or offense. There is no one that hasn’t at one time or another been caught in this snare. This is how each of us should pray to make sure that we stay free:
“Lord, please forgive me if I have operated in pride, jealousy or offense. I ask now that if there is any of this in my life or heart that it would be removed. I command it to go. I pray that you would open my eyes to truth and the see your heart and your way and to stay free from deception. Give me Your eyes to see and Your ears to hear what you see and hear.”
