Sins of the Heart (Infractions of the Law of Love)
Hatred, Contentions, Jealousy, Outbursts of wrath, Selfish Ambitions, Dissensions, Heresies, Envy, Murder.
All of the above names that I have listed stem from a manifestation of anger or resentment. “Anger rests in the bosom of fools” Ecclesiastes 7:9 Anger gets deeply rooted, embraced, and welcomed into the heart once we allow it to come in and remain. It later becomes hard, but not impossible to get out. This root if anger branches seeds of hatred, contentions, jealousy, wrath, selfishness, heresies, envy, and murder.
When I think of murder, I think of those hijackers that where involved in the terrorist attacks back on September 11th. They were so determined to follow the orders of their leader, that they took their own life in the process. A person has to be driven by some demonic force in order to not only kill themselves but also to take such a vast number of other lives with them. Right there you can also see the spirits of suicide, genocide, deception, and mind control. These people were so driven by the enemy that they did not care who or what they took down. Once that demon takes over, a person only sees rage in his eyes; murder is a dangerous demonic spirit.
The spirit of Jezebel controls murder and violence. In Revelation 18:24, the Word says, “in her arms was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth”. This spirit also uses un-forgiveness, jealousy, anger, pride, bitterness, hatred, hostility, and covetousness.
Even if you have never killed anyone, murder can still infest your heart. Murder comes in through un-forgiveness and bitterness and if a person does not forgive, then hatred comes in. Jesus said that if a man hates his brother, he has already murdered him in his heart. That is why it is important for us to walk in love, forgiveness, and the Fruit of the Spirit.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
