Discern and Resist

   At this time, My people are experiencing many distractions. These distractions come in many forms, and keep you from My Word, from worship, and from prayer. You have cast aside your normal routines in favor of distraction.

   My people, the enemy of your souls has set a trap for you and it is hidden in the distractions. Some of you became trapped months ago, some of you are newly entrapped. You find yourselves distracted and you do not know how you came to be there. Look back. Look back at when you last felt My presence often –what were you doing then that you do not do now?

   Your enemy works in advance to set these traps for you, that you may be in a weakened state for something coming into your lives or some loss that is coming. In this way, he can land a bigger blow to you at that time, as you are not built up in My Word, in prayer, and in worship.

   You must learn to discern when the enemy is at work in your lives. You must learn to discern when he is quietly pulling you towards something not of Me, because anything not of Me will weaken your spiritual self and weaken your walk with Me.

   Learn to discern, and to resist these snares set for you, that you may live.

1 Corinthians 10:13
  • 13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
James 4:7-10
  • Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
  • Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.
  • Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness.
  • 10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.
1 Peter 5:8-10
  • Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
  • Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.
  • 10 But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.
