Subtle Distractions of the Enemy

Over the weekend, the Lord spoke a very strong warning to me about two spirits that are rampant in the church - offense and flattery. The enemy is using these weapons against God's people, because they easily distract us from the work of the ministry. We must mature to a place where we are able to see and discern in the spirit. Too many of us are getting caught up with the person, and missing the spirit and intent of a thing.

Offense makes us angry and bitter. It causes us to dwell on insignificant issues. Flattery makes us prideful and comfortable. It causes us to lose our sense of urgency about the things of God. Discernment is key! Watch our for flattery and offense in this season.

Mark 13:37 "And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch."
