WHEN I OPENED MY EYES, THIS IS WHAT YOU SAID:
Has there been a suspicious, negative spirit
that has been influencing you?
Thereís a very fine line between discernment and judgement...
that can subtly persuade you to do...
nothing at all because your hope has been based...
on how youíre received; not that I have erased...
with total payment all challenging spirits;
Their mission, of course, is that you will fear it.
Yet, is anything greater than what I have done?
Can anything change what My Son has won?
Could it be, they have so deceived,..
you find yourself, now, unable to believe?
Exercise your power to get rid of them!
You know how to bind and loose;
This is My power that I gave to men;
I will not receive your excuse!
The Lord brought to my mind an incident,
that I heard, as a child, growing up:
Not to judge; only to discern and stop a spirit thatís corrupt:
At church one Sunday, the collection plate was passed;
My Grandfather put in a dollar...his last!
My Dad, as a child, thought he had lost his mind
and determined heíd not be fooled with this kind...
of a person that would take a manís money for food;
Thus, opening a door for a spirit to use...
a man of high integrity with suspicions to infect his whole family.
I know this spirit has influenced me,
as well as my children, from what I can see;
I donít know a lot about generational curses...but, I think this might qualify;
Iím wondering if we should call a family meeting...
and get rid of this long-standing spy...
that for years has perverted this familyís discernment and tried to justify:
Go one step beyond pulling down strongholds observed;
Is it time to expose this lie?
Perhaps this is what my Grandfather seeded;
His intention was not suspicion;
What do you think? Is it time, as a family,
to perform a circumcision?
This spirt brought other spirits, as well...additions that can be seen:
Alcohol, over-eating to obesity, along with nicotine;
Expensive habits that kill the body; Not a Grandfatherís intent;
When this spirit entered, it took many years...
of suspicions to circumvent...trusting that He totally paid for me;
believing and receiving there can be unity.
Thereís been prophecies about God cleansing His Temple;
Thatís not anything that I can do;
All I have to do is admit it and leave the cleansing to You...
as well as addictions that I canít break;
Religion tells me,Ēto do this for Jesus sakeĒ;
Then, further condemnations accumulate...
and make you hide thinking: Iíll never escape.
These most certainly were not my thoughts;
Itís a remembrance You brought to my mind...
when I woke up this morning this is what You said;
Perhaps corporate power defined!
