“And I will keep on doing what I am doing in order to cut the ground from under those who want an opportunity to be considered equal with us in the things they boast about. For such people are false apostles, deceitful workers, masquerading as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants also masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve” (2Cor 11:12-15)
This is the prescribed method of warfare when under attack from ‘satan himself’ thru his human agents. These are religious people, pretending to be born again Christians. But they are fake to the core. The only way satan can succeed to win any territory or credit from the true believers, is thru deception. Be warned! Be watchful against the possibility of deception! Do not trust your natural senses, especially your eyes. For sights can deceive. On the surface a thief looks good and a adulterer looks holy. A manipulator may have a good opera voice and a liar may graduate from a Bible school. Fight to know the truth. It is a good and holy fight. Each drop of revelation truth will give you tones of freedom. Chose to defeat deception to get a breakthrough into the land of Spirit’s holy freedom.
The best method of warfare prescribed in the Bible is to ‘continue to do what you are already doing’. It means that you have to continue to serve God the best way you can. Do not stop serving God and men! Learn to die to the sweet voices of these false brethren. Like Nehemiah said when under a similar attack: ‘how can I abandon such a good work I am doing, to build the city and the house of God, and come to chat with you? I will not come!’
Do not interrupt the flow of the Spirit in ministry just because some idle evil religious men are dying of envy of you. Learn to avoid such useless and dangerous distractions. Remain focused keeping your eyes on Jesus. He conquered the world and in His name, you can do the same. Sooner or later you shall see defeat in the camp of the opposition. It shall come swiftly. It is a God’ promise of justice. You shall rejoice with a new joy not know before. And God will be glorified!
