When They Fear Your Anointing

As I spend time in the Spirit, I am drawn to 1 Samuel 18. In the prior chapter, David defeated the giant Philistine Goliath.

Indeed, the Spirit of the LORD left Saul and he began to be tormented by an evil spirit.  At the same time, the LORD is walking David right into his anointing.

Likewise, we realize that this is when the spiritual warfare began for David. It is not the beginning. As his brothers showed contempt and maltreatment for him. Nevertheless, eventually evolved.

David is unjustly pursued by Saul who hated him. Knowing that the LORD is with David.

Saul's jealousy and envy set in motion his desire to kill David. As if eliminating him would restore his standing with men and/or God. (Think of Cain and Abel.)

A Tragic Misconception

This is a form of pride that I see every day as a nurse. The LORD only decides who lives and who dies. When a fragile human is healed by the LORD's grace. Days are added to their life. They immediately begin to brag about their strength. Albeit the truth is that no man or "ancestor" can keep his soul alive.

But I digress...The focus is on how your enemies fear your anointing. Saul could not even look at David. Additionally, being unable to stand being in the same room with him. Likewise, Saul and those willing to do his bidding continually planned on how to kill David.

Saul's true character is becoming more evident. Authenticating why God rejects him. Moreover, Saul is willing to give his daughter to David. As a snare. Speaking volumes about her character and the distress she may have caused him while growing up. Nevertheless, for a season, as much as was possible, she loved David.

Preparation in Adversity

Saul's torturous insults toward David caused him great despair. David, who respected, loved, and feared him.

However, this is a part of David's preparation. To strengthen his discernment. While distinguishing those that are worthy of his trust from those who would either attempt to use him or worse.

Many people think that when you are anointed you should not experience hardship. As it is written, "It is good for me that I have been afflicted, that I may learn Your statutes." (Psalm 119:71)

This right here is reminiscent of the fact of how precious it is to be consecrated by Him. I can attest that it can be very grievous. It is a purification that is necessary.

Nonetheless, the enemy and those who are not in right standing (spiritually), will see this and fear you. It is profoundly written that God does not give us a spirit of fear. And rightfully so.

Therefore, the attribute of fear will lead to cataclysmic consequences. Except for being motivated to move through this stagnating emotion. Otherwise, we may be enslaved by this evil spirit. Particularly those who are plagued by the acts of the tormented or tormentors.

Think About What You Are Thinking About

As I write this, the feeling of discouragement is replaced with thankfulness. There is no need to be envious or like evil doers. Who think that they are flourishing. But as the grass withers...

To be chosen is momentous! God does not take this likely. And neither should we.

In the end not only has Saul died. But he is a direct and willing participant in the death of Jonathan, his son. Who ultimately chose love and loyalty for Saul. Being there for him in times of war. All the while knowing that Saul was wrong on many levels.

David's love and zeal for God were and is still being manifested to this very day. Jesus does not forget those whom He consecrates. And we must not forget the magnitude of what it takes to walk into and through our destiny with Him.

Always coming from a place of love.

  Don't Profane What is Holy!!! People are committing all sorts of immoral lusts against their bodies. Marrying and in homosexual, bisexual, and polygamous relationships. Truly believing that you can indulge in lasciviousness and see God's face in peace. The worst part is that you are bringing innocent children into the equation. Allowing them to be taunted and scarred by brutal indifference. While exposing them to one of the most demonically, sinister, and perverse entities that walk this earth. A spirit that is so degenerate, it will and has led to bestiality and worse. Now I need you to read or listen to this at least three times. Some may be offended. But because you are leading to the corruption of the innocent. While mocking God when you know that it is wrong. Judgment will be swift and merciless. You have rejected God!!! Did you get that? Because when you sin against your own body. This is a specialized kind of self-hate. Birthed through mental, emotional, psychological,
  Spiritual Warfare is Not a Game!!! This will resonate with those who have a true anointing over their lives. Now more than ever I understand that we truly are in spiritual warfare. God's presence is so powerful that people will tend to remove themselves from your company. Recognize that you need to put on the full armor of God. This can only be attained through intimacy with Him. Meditating in His Word. People say that they want to know God and have a relationship with Him. But can you handle the isolation that comes with this? Malevolent spirits are aware of you, and they will shun you. Or worse. Trust me when I say that even if the person does not know you, the spirit that dwells within them knows when you are of God. You must remain humble as you become more aware of this phenomenon. Because the flesh fights within you every day to be exalted and recognized. Pride is malignant and cancerous. Remember. Spiritual warfare is incarnate and irrefutable.  Cassandra Mack Podcast (spo
  Don't Worry About Nothing!!! Can I tell you that when you are fretful, allowing someone to "trigger" you. You open yourself up to spiritual distress. Unnecessary persecution from the enemy. Frustrating your spiritual balance. Sending you into mental and emotional chaos. You allow the adversary to rule over your thoughts and emotions. The negative effects are compounded by a slow spiritual and mental recovery. Every time you allow this, it is harder to heal, robbing you of the ability to exercise faith in God's Word. You must remember that we are more than conquerors. Stop and see this ambush for what it is. Speak the affirmations of God's Word. This is why Philippians 4:8 admonishes us, "Finally, believers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable and worthy of respect, whatever is right and confirmed by God's Word, whatever is pure and wholesome, whatever is lovely and brings peace, whatever is admirable and of good repute; if there is any excellence, i
