Dealing With Troublemakers

“ A dishonest man spreads strife.”

We all know them. They are troublemakers. Troublemakers are people who are so miserable in their own life that the only thing that makes them happy is starting trouble between other people, stirring the pot, and then sitting back and gleefully watching the outcome of the trouble they created.

It has taken me awhile but I have recently discovered a major troublemaker in my circle of friends and family. I had noticed that every single person that this person and I know in common suddenly stops talking to me. When, to the best of my knowledge, I had done nothing to any of these people to upset them I prayed about it and God revealed to me the source of the trouble was one person. One person who I have had discernment about for sometime. One person who was at one time close to God but through sexual addictions has opened a door to every demonic spirit one can imagine. Several years ago the person had pictures online of them in church. Then, apparently, they got involved with a bad person or two and you can see that Satan has entered their life now and as they say, “in spades.”

Because most Christians are sensitive people, when we don’t have on the armor of God, when we don’t have the gift of discernment in knowing how to best deal with these troublemakers, they can easily get under our skin, disrupting our home and lives, pulling us into their lion’s den.

All it takes is one Satan filled demon from hell to turn your whole office, family and or friends against you.

At first, when you are the target, you think as a Christian that you can simply pray for them and be kind to them and they will change their ways. I considered that, and frankly I have been praying for the person for years. I prayed for them long before their jealousy of my life led them to try and destroy my ministry and my life.

Upon studying the Bible, regarding the way Jesus handled trouble makers, I came to the knowledge that Jesus used diverse ways in handling troublemakers. Some times he confronted them with anger and outrage while telling followers to pray for these people.

You can try ignoring them but most of them, I have found, become further upset and then do anything they can to get your attention.

I honestly believe the best way to handle them is to go to the people who no longer speak to you and tell them what you suspect the person, the troublemaker, of doing. Their favorite tactic is to tell someone you said something about them. Something hurtful. You can then try and set the record straight. Unfortunately these troublemakers are very skilled at what they do and sometimes the offended friend will NOT believe you.

To my friends in ministry, of any type, I want to warn you of something some of you already know and that is the fact that ministry can be very lonely. We have very few friends because of the anointing Christ has on our lives. Other Christians, out of jealousy, look for something to accuse you of. If you, being human, have a hard day and share that with a friend, the next thing you know it’s used against you. Be very careful of who you share with!

Troublemakers need to be exposed. I have found, as I fast and pray about the situation, God reveals to me how to deal with the problem. He also starts to out the troublemakers to others who then begin to see the truth.

You want to give a troublemaker as little ammunition against you as possible so, after praying, God may tell you to unfollow them on FB, and cut them out of your life. If you have to work with them plead the blood of Jesus over yourself anytime you come into contact with them. Ask God to turn the arrows they are attacking you with right back onto them. God once, during prayer, gave me a vision of a shield of armor surrounding me, as a circular fence. Every time the troublemaker shot malicious arrows my way they bounced off the shield of armor and went back onto the troublemaker.

Do not, and I know it’s so hard, get anxious about a troublemaker. Remember, and quote often, the following scripture;

“Greater is He who is within ME then he who is in the world.” 1 John 4:4.

Lastly, the Word tells us to ignore troublemakers. Set things straight with others, if you can, and then simply try to not think of it all the time. Stop anxiety thoughts and place your mind elsewhere. Then give it to God and try to forgive them, through Christ, who has forgiven you and me of so very much!

Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. – James 4:7

Anxiety Caused By Financial Stress

Living beyond our means causes a whole lot of our anxiety. Pray to get your finances into control. Quit buying things you cannot afford. Pay off your credit cards a little at a time. When our lives are out of control there will be disorder in every area. Disorder breeds stress.

I know of where I speak. I was once totally out of control financially. It caused me undue stress worrying about things I didn’t have to worry about because I spent money as a means of avoiding depression. I would often have to stress over obligations because of spending money on stuff I did not need. In the past ten years if I can’t pay cash for something I just don’t buy it. That life-change took God turning my life around and teaching me self-control.

Spending money we don’t have becomes an addiction, a high. You can start today to get it under control and live within your means. Worrying about paying bills is one of the greatest destroyers of relationships. Anytime you feel you have to spend money on someone to keep them you have a bad problem. I extend that to our children too. Build memories through family activities that don’t involve spending money.

I have had two dear friends die, in the past few years, who were not only paying their own bills but those of their grown children. They were afraid to say “NO” for fear their children wouldn’t love them or spend time with them. That’s emotional blackmail! Worry and stress killed them. There is no doubt in my mind. If you are an adult with a job learn to live on your own money.

Some of us need to grow up and live responsibly. Pray and lay your finances at the feet of Jesus, ask Him humbly about teaching you to live responsibly. If you need help email me at mscathie123@yahoo.com. I will give you a list of books that really helped me.

It’s amazing how quickly God will come to your side with help once you admit you are out of control!

Satan Wants To Destroy You

Satan is not stupid. He has been studying you since the day you were born because his goal, his only goal, is to take as many people to hell with him as possible.

He will bring something or someone that looks like everything you have ever wanted to destroy you.

You will be so thrilled with the person you will forget they aren’t a bible believing Christian. You will be so thrilled with the car you won’t see that you will have to work two jobs to keep it. You will be so in love with the beautiful house on the hill that you will forget the fact that you wanted a starter home to build up equity and not have to rent anymore.

So many times well meaning Christians are in bad situations because of Satan putting something in front of them they really didn’t need in order to destroy them and their peace.

If you are there today pray in contrite sorrow and ask God to forgive you for putting things and people before Him. When we sincerely repent God comes on the scene and delivers us. Learn from the lessons, beloved of the Lord, and vow to God you will not repeat them. Put him in the center of all your decisions and you will do the right thing!

John 10:10 New International Version The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.

Self Control

Self control is not something we get by gritting our teeth and forcing ourselves to “ just say no.” In the Bible self-control is referred to as a fruit of the Spirit. Fruit doesn’t instantly pop out on a tree. As the tree grows and seasons pass, the fruit naturally develops. As we continue to follow God’s guidance, taking one step at a time, our self control will gradually grow. Our job is to stay connected to God. It’s the Holy Spirit’s job to produce the fruit of self control in our lives. Galatians 5:16-17.

A Word About The Current Situation

Last night I was feeling fine and got ready for bed. I was tired and looking forward to restful sleep.

As some of you know I have Lupus, IBD and a broken vertebrae with two badly compressed discs. Most days I would rather stay in bed but my husband is now 75% blind and needs my help. I am forced to get up. Perhaps that’s a good thing.

I would never make it without Christ! Never..

Just as I was putting my feet into bed a gut wrenching pain hit my body. Out of nowhere my sciatica was causing the worst pain of my life. I couldn’t understand where this had come from. I hadn’t lifted anything or turned my body suddenly. I was literally crying with pain.

It was then I realized it was an attack from Satan.

As I cried out for God to help me, and prayed and praised in the spirit, the Lord began to download into my spirit a word about the current situation in the World, and especially the USA.

Perhaps the pain was God’s way to still me and get my attention because this morning it’s almost gone.

The Lord said to me, “Daughter Satan’s Army is advancing quickly. The lies are from the pits of hell and it’s becoming harder for a lot of midstream Democrats to stay true to a party who manipulates and uses dirty tricks to obtain their objective of One World Government.

I have used the Kavanaugh situation for several reasons. Kavanaugh was born and raised in privilege and up until now has not experienced the full force of evil coming against him. Now he is awake. Now he sees the dirty tricks for what they are. The anger he expressed was righteous anger. The kind of anger my son had when he went into the temple and said, “You have turned my father’s house into a den of thieves.” Kavanaugh knows now that Satan is working through them and is fully awake.

This is a warning to be aware of your surroundings at all times. People are angry and cannot handle the truth of what is being unleashed on the world. They are not close to me and most don’t want to be as they prefer the works of the flesh. Without a belief in me they are following their base natures. Without belief they are empowered to do what ever comes to their minds.

You are seeing and hearing things being done to children you would never have believed people capable of doing. Satan always attacks the seed of man as it was when Pharaoh gave the command to kill all the Hebrew firstborn. Protect your children with prayer. Teach them to pray. Their angels surround them.

I warn you that you must stay fasting, as often as possible, and praying because prayer and the Word are your greatest weapons against Satan’s Army of evil people. This is not the time to be complacent. Sweet words tickle the ears but the truth of the situation must be shared.

Kavanaugh is the first of many prominent people who are going to have their eyes open to the evil you are fighting against. They will finally see the truth that has been hidden to them because of their lives of wealth and privilege. If you think there will be peace in the world you are mistaken. It will only get worse and when it feels as if you cannot take anymore you will look up and see me coming in the clouds to take you home.

When you stay true to Me you walk in My supernatural favor. I will be moving many of you to different towns, neighborhoods and even countries. You have been assigned a specific place and even specific people are assigned to you. Your bright light will put out the darkness in many peoples lives. Stay plugged into my power. I will see that you have supernatural provision for all I have for you to do in my behalf. Stay humble and kind. I will do miracles in the lives on my people for the very reason that the unsaved will see these miracles and know you have Me working in your lives.

I am putting Christian men and women together to work powerfully in the Kingdom. People who do not belong in my children’s lives will leave them. Let them go because I will replace them with true believers. What do the Children of light have to do with the children of Darkness?

Look at all things happening through the eyes of the kingdom. When you do that it all makes more sense to you and you will not worry. I am in complete control!”

Maranatha!

Those Who Reject God And His People

“Do not cast your pearls before swine. Do not waste good things on people who will not appreciate them. This proverb is adapted from a saying of Jesus from the Gospels, “Cast not pearls before swine.” Jesus appears to be warning his disciples to preach only before receptive audiences.”

Earlier this year the Lord spoke to my heart to share something with someone who is saved but obviously backslidden. As I started to do that she looked me right in the eye and walked away and out of the room.

I felt bad because I realized it wasn’t just me she was rejecting but God. When she looked me in the eye I saw not her but a demon operating through her.

I decided at that time that she made a choice. Not only to be disrespectful to me but, much more importantly, to God.

So we have to remember that some people are not EVER going to be receptive to the truth. Some people will have to go through more before they cry out to God to “save me, Father!” And since we don’t know which way it will go we must shake the dust from our feet and move on to where we are needed.

New International Version

“Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces. Matthew 7:6

Self-Pity is Ugly

Sometimes there is a pay-off for constant self-pity, playing the victim, etc. The pay-off is attention. Another pay-off is using these things as an excuse for not achieving goals.

At first the attention is given by people who feel sorry for the person…..but ten plus years down the road people start to avoid people who play the victim.

It’s not that some don’t have reasons for their victim mentality. Years of devastation, betrayal, rejection and loss have occurred.

God wants to heal the years the locust have eaten away. Like my favorite song says, “He’s a way-maker, miracle worker, promise keeper, light in the darkness..”

Only His supernatural healing power will restore you!

Joel 2:24-26

…24The threshing floors will be full of grain, and the vats will overflow with new wine and oil. 25I will repay you for the years that the swarming locusts have eaten— the young locust, the destroying locust, and the devouring locust My great army that I sent against you. 26You will have plenty to eat, until you are satisfied. You will praise the name of the LORD your God, who has worked wonders for you. My people will never again be put to shame.…

He Wants You To Stand Still

img_4171

You think you have a problem today? How about this one?

The Israelites were in a world of hurt. They had the Red Sea in front of them and Pharaohs Egyptian Army in back of them.

Exodus 14:10-14 10And when Pharaoh drew nigh, the children of Israel lifted up their eyes, and, behold, the Egyptians marched after them; and they were sore afraid: and the children of Israel cried out unto the LORD. 11And they said unto Moses, Because there were no graves in Egypt, hast thou taken us away to die in the wilderness? wherefore hast thou dealt thus with us, to carry us forth out of Egypt? 12Is not this the word that we did tell thee in Egypt, saying, Let us alone, that we may serve the Egyptians? For it had been better for us to serve the Egyptians, than that we should die in the wilderness. 13And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will show to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever. 14The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.

The Lord wants you to do the same thing that he told the Israelites to do STAND STILL THE LORD SHALL FIGHT FOR YOU HOLD YOUR PEACE.

But standing still sounds like doing nothing to most of us. We rush around, we wring our hands and we say, “Lord, what am I going to do?” We all get that manipulative Jezebel spirit on us every now and then. We think we have to figure it out. When we cannot do that we call first one friend and then another and pour out our problems hoping that they will help us.

The Word of God tells us the following; I lift up my eyes to the mountains- where does my help come from? 2My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth. Psalm 121:1-2

Our help comes from God. Not from mom and dad, not from our best friend, but from GOD.

I was doing a bible study on “standing still” today. It is amazing how many times, in so many verses of the bible, God tells us to stand still.

“Now then, stand still and see this great thing the LORD is about to do before your eyes!” 1 Samuel 12:16

“Be still, and know that I [am] God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.” Psalms 46:10

“Ye shall not need to fight in this battle: set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of the Lord with you, O Judah and Jerusalem: fear not, nor be dismayed; tomorrow go out against them: for the Lord will be with you.” 2 Chronicles 20-17

You may be thinking, “I am going to do this, or I am going to do that!” God is saying to you today beloved, STAND STILL.

God is not a man that EVER lies. He will do this for you and do it in a way you may never have thought of and from the hand of someone whom you never imagined blessing you.

Calm yourself. Sit down, take a deep breath in and hold it to the count of five, and then release it to the count of 5. Then say, “I am standing still and I am quiet while God solves this problem for me. I relax in peace because I belong to God and He is working this out for me now! I may not see Him at work but I knowHe is because His Word says He is.” Then relax. When the worry thoughts come back to you again, courtesy of the tormentor of your soul, do the same exact thing.

God has this! Send me an email with a miracle report so we can encourage others!

Stand STILL.

Once Saved Always Saved? No

We all struggle with sin every day. I know I do. No one is perfect, I am far from it but I pray daily to do the will of God.

Nevertheless some are teaching doctrines of the devil saying we can do whatever we want and still be saved. Wrong. We have sent evangelists to other countries who taught that to people who became evangelists in those countries. The goal? Money. People will come and give you money to give them assurance they can do whatever they please. There are pastors in this country who do the same.

This is what the Word says, Jeremiah 23:1

New Living Translation

“What sorrow awaits the leaders of my people–the shepherds of my sheep–for they have destroyed and scattered the very ones they were expected to care for,” says the LORD.

The Bible warns against serious sins that will keep a person from entering God’s Kingdom. (1 Corinthians 6:9-11; Galatians 5:19-21) If salvation could not be lost, such warnings would be meaningless. Instead, the Bible shows that someone who has been saved can fall away by returning to a practice of serious sin. For example, Hebrews 10:26 states: “If we practice sin willfully after having received the accurate knowledge of the truth, there is no longer any sacrifice for sins left.”—Hebrews 6:4-6; 2 Peter 2:20-22.

The Tense Political Season In America

Lion roaring - no weapon formed against us!

Noticing all the hateful and cruel things said to people in this political climate, I have been studying demonic oppression again.

Sometimes we forget that at one time Satan was a glorious angel who served God. He began to become full of pride and started a rebellion. Then he was kicked out of heaven and down to earth. However, according to the Bible 1/3 of the previous angelic beings went with Him. They too were thrown to earth. You may have heard these beings referred to as “fallen angels.”

Satan was already in rebellion when he led Eve to rebel against God in the Garden of Eden, by eating of the forbidden fruit. This would indicate that Satan’s rebellion against God was probably before the Heavens and Earth (as we know them) was created.

Sometimes we meet evil people. People who for no reason at all seem to delight in stirring up trouble for people. In praying about this once, God revealed to me that in those cases those people, unknowingly, have demon oppression and those demons recognize Christ in us and they find that threatening.

I bring this up to remind you that all the evil that surrounds us these days has a source. That source is Satan. So, as they say, consider the source.

I believe that all the political fighting is becoming very stressful to people in both parties. Think about a contentious relationship that you may have had in the past. It might have been so filled with fighting and dysfunction that you literally became ill. When I was in a marriage like that I simply wanted out, so that I could live in peace and serenity again. At one point you realize that the person causing the dysfunction will not change and so you simply give up and separate from them in order to save your soul.

Perhaps all this contention will lead to people deciding not to care about politics anymore. After all where does it get you? No one is likely to change his or her opinion because of something someone else says to them on Social Media.

What I feel God has instructed me to do is to simply keep quiet and stay in peace He especially instructed me to do that with those whose political views are different from mine. The scripture that comes to me often is “Be still and know that I am GOD!”

I turn off my television often. I then pray, read the Word of God and take care of things around the house I have neglected.

This is a very tense situation and I want you to know that God has warned me that it may get very bad before its all over. God recently gave me direction in the following scripture verse;

“Go, my people, enter your rooms and shut the doors behind you; hide yourselves for a little while until his wrath has passed by.” Isaiah 20

So, if the worst, whatever that turns out to be, happens I ask you to heed the word of the Lord and not get into the middle of it. I do not want to get into a political discussion here but there are several things brewing on the political scene that may turn out to be bad for us all. Please remember the above verse. Stop, think and then act as a last resort.

God is in control and he is greater then any spiritual battle we may be facing as well.

Remember regardless of what party you favor, there are good and bad people in charge and our God is in heaven and He will take care of His people. Of that, I have no doubt.
