It is called the green “eyed" monster and God hates it vehemently
This is oftentimes, an ancestrally inherited character trait that derail and destroy, actually stemming from evil family patterns which lead to manifestations in attitude and character, this one called JEALOUSY
Biblical examples of character family traits and patterns that did not please God and were of course, destructive:
5 SIMEON AND LEVI ARE BRETHREN; INSTRUMENTS OF CRUELTY ARE IN THEIR HABITATIONS.
6 O my soul, come not thou into their secret; unto their assembly, mine honour, be not thou united: for in their anger they slew a man, and in their selfwill they digged down a wall.
7 Cursed be their anger, for it was fierce; and their wrath, for it was cruel: I will divide them in Jacob, and scatter them in Israel.
1 AND THERE WENT A MAN OF THE HOUSE OF LEVI. AND TOOK TO WIFE A DAUGHTER OF LEVI
........ Moses was born of two families that came together in marital union giving birth to a child that became known as one of the greatest prophets in Earth's history was unique in ministry but had continual battles with uncontrollable ANGER, often displaying extreme anger outbursts and even killed a man once because he was very angry at the display of injustice...shows that CHARACTER MANIFESTATION CAN BE USUALLY JUSTIFIED!
Note from the Bible passage on the above God's response and eventual decision on Moses' continual outburst and display!
Abraham lied to deny his wife
Isaac his son, denied his wife¦lying
Jacob (grandchild of Abraham) told a lie, cunningly getting Esau's birthright and his own sons in turn lied to him about the favorite son being dead
Flow of lying spirit in the BLOODLINE!
Check out the following Bible passages on Jealousy and that destructive trait
3And he put forth the form of an hand, and took me by a lock of mine head; and the spirit lifted me up between the earth and the heaven, and brought me in the visions of God to Jerusalem, to the door of the inner gate that looketh toward the north; where was the seat of the image of jealousy, which provoketh to jealousy.
4And, behold, the glory of the God of Israel was there, according to the vision that I saw in the plain.
5Then said he unto me, Son of man, lift up thine eyes now the way toward the north. So I lifted up mine eyes the way toward the north, and behold northward at the gate of the altar this image of jealousy in the entry.
6He said furthermore unto me, Son of man, seest thou what they do? even the great abominations that the house of Israel committeth here, that I should go far off from my sanctuary? But turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations.
13 Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show by good conduct that his works are done in the meekness of wisdom. 14 But if you have bitter envy and self-seeking in your hearts, do not boast and lie against the truth. 15 This wisdom does not descend from above, but is earthly, sensual, demonic. 16 For where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there.
30 A sound heart is life to the body,
But envy is rottenness to the bones.
3 A stone is heavy and sand is weighty,
But a foolâ€™s wrath is heavier than both of them.
4 Wrath is cruel and anger a torrent,
But who is able to stand before jealousy?
1 Corinthians 3
3 And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ. 2 I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able; 3 for you are still carnal. For where there are envy, strife, and divisions among you, are you not carnal and behaving like mere men? 4 For when one says, â€śI am of Paul,â€ť and another, â€śI am of Apollos,â€ť are you not carnal?5 Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers through whom you believed, as the Lord gave to each one?
But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast and be false to the truth. This is not the wisdom that comes down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual, and demonic. For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there will be disorder and every vile practice.
Prayer against jealous destiny manipulators
4 Let those be put to shame and brought to dishonor
Who seek after my life;
Let those be turned back and brought to confusion
Who plot my hurt.
5 Let them be like chaff before the wind,
And let the angel of the LORD chase them.
6 Let their way be dark and slippery,
And let the angel of the LORD pursue them.
7 For without cause they have hidden their net for me in a pit,
Which they have dug without cause for my life.
8 Let destruction come upon him unexpectedly,
And let his net that he has hidden catch himself;
Into that very destruction let him fall.
It seems that the devil is gaining grounds and having unmolested control in your life and situation?
Spiritually stagnant in this situation and wondering what to do ........... Seek solutions from the most high!
2 kings 5:1-27
27 Therefore the leprosy of Naaman shall cling to you and your descendants forever. And he went out from his presence leprous, as white as snow..Today, Gehazi's lineage and generations are suffering under the yoke of a great prophetâ€™s CURSE.
Judges 6: 25-27
Now it came to pass the same night that the LORD said to him, "Take your father's young bull, the second bull of seven years old, and tear down the altar of Baal that your father has, and cut down the wooden image that is beside it; and build an altar to the LORD your God on top of this rock in the proper arrangement, and take the second bull and offer a burnt sacrifice with the wood of the image which you shall cut down." So Gideon took ten men from among his servants and did as the LORD had said to him. But because he feared his father's household and the men of the city too much to do it by day, he did it by night.
GIDEON GETS A NICKNAME
28 And when the men of the city arose early in the morning, there was the altar of Baal, torn down; and the wooden image that was beside it was cut down, and the second bull was being offered on the altar which had been built.
29 So they said to one another, Who has done this thing? And when they had inquired and asked, they said, â€śGideon the son of Joash has done this thing.
30 Then the men of the city said to Joash, â€śBring out your son, that he may die, because he has torn down the altar of Baal, and because he has cut down the wooden image that was beside it.
31 But Joash said to all who stood against him, Would you plead for Baal? Would you save him? Let the one who would plead for him be put to death by morning! If he is a god, let him plead for himself, because his altar has been torn down!
32 Therefore on that day he called him Jerubbaal, saying, Let Baal plead against him, because he has torn down his altar.
Seek until you receive the anointing that breaks the yoke, because by strength shall NO man prevail for human ability is minute compared to the activities of the spiritual
John 3: 27
