An Insufferable Burden-faithwriters
Matthew 6: 13; Ephesians 6:10-12; I Peter 5:8-9; Hebrews 7:25;9:12-14

Religious piety often appears in a darker guise. Some of My dearest children are under the severest oppression of religious spirits masquerading as divine inspiration. One tactic of satan is to get My saints so obsessed with the doctrine of redemptive suffering (their OWN), that they forget it is the Blood of Christ which sanctifies from sin and makes them fit to enter into My Presence.

These misguided souls actually feel guilty when things are going well in their lives and I am blessing their outward circumstances. They think they ought to stay in a perpetual state of trial and difficulty, so as to be “refined in the furnace” to get impurities out of their lives to make them fit to stand before Me. Every day they welcome with open arms each and every miserable thing which assails their lives, no matter how horrible it is. They even reach the point they feel guilty for being driven to pray that I’ll deliver them from the trial and protect them from evil, even though My Son taught His own disciples to pray this way.

Satan has wrecked the lives and ministries of many well-meaning but deluded souls who genuinely wanted to serve me to the utmost of their ability, but were hindered repeatedly by severe setbacks bacause they would not resist him steadfastly in prayer. The devil tricked them into thinking they’d be resisting Me if they came against the works of the devil in their health or other circumstances!

Satan encounters little or no resistance from such saints. My hands are effectively tied when they refuse to pray earnestly for Me to deliver them from evil. Instead, they thank me for each and every ugly attack of satan, mistaking passivity for piety. How can I heal someone of cancer if the sufferer considers it a heaven-sent blessing and offers up a prayer of thanks for his condition? Some are wrongly taught that to give thanks in all things dictates that they must also give thanks for all things, even for the ruin the devil is wreaking upon their homes, marriages, and bodies! Such satanic assaults are the works of the devil! My Son came to destroy satan’s evil works, not sanctify them on the altar! Such ugly things are not divine favors you’re supposed to thank Me for sending. Otherwise, would Christ not have been opposing My will by coming to destroy them? I would, rather, have every saint to acknowledge and give thanks for every good and perfect gift in his life, both spiritual and material, even as he rejects the works of a devil who hates him.

The suffering-obsessed saint is susceptible to the false teaching that no offering is ever acceptable to Me unless it is given sacrificially, at great cost to himself. He actually fears that if he doesn’t continually impose great hardship upon himself and his loved ones, he is no disciple of Mine, and I might even disown him for failing to mortify his flesh enough.

What a demonic, destructive doctrine, this perverse idea that I cannot be pleased with My saints unless they are suffering!

Glory be to God! This is the Gods honest truth! Praise God. We are victors and not victums! We are to give thanks and praise IN ALL THINGS, but when those things are cancer and destructions our praise and thanks is to God, for giving us deliverance and healings from such. We thank Him for giving us the power to OVERCOME sin and temptations, and every wicked demon! Glory be to God! ManofGod
