Lies from the Enemy

Be on alert, brethren! A common lie from the enemy is to accuse a believer of having committed the unforgivable sin: the blasphemy of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 12:31-32, Mark 3:28–30, Luke 11:14-23). This lie is designed to keep you in mental torment and disarm you, hindering your work for the Kingdom of God. The enemy is calculated and vicious. He wants to
destroy you, but take heart, Jesus has already defeated him! If the enemy has ever attacked you with this lie, please know there is hope!
If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior, you have the Holy Spirit residing in you! You have not blasphemed Him. How do I know this? Because the Word says this: “And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment.” (John 16:8). If you did not have the Holy Spirit, you would not feel any conviction or need to get
right with God. This is because the Holy Spirit is the one who gives us conviction. There is no conviction without Him. In addition, the Holy Spirit is the one who testifies of Jesus. “But when the Helper comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify of Me.” (John 15:26). Now, because the Holy Spirit is the one who testifies of Jesus, the reason why blaspheming Him is the only unforgivable sin is because we need His witness in order to ask Jesus to be our Savior. No Holy Spirit, no conviction that we
need a Savior. The Holy Spirit never leaves you: “And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever…” (John 14:16)

The following verses helped set me free from tormenting thoughts. Use these when the enemy tells you that the Holy Spirit has left you or you feel condemnation or hopelessness: – “In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in
whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise.” (Ephesians 1:13) – “For if our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart, and knows all things.” (1 John
3:20) – “And the Lord, He is the One who goes before you. He will be with you; He will not leave you nor forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed.” (Deuteronomy 31:8)

This lie of having committed the unforgivable sin brings with it feelings of
condemnation, which often leads to the spirit of depression, which can morph into feelings of hopelessness. The enemy can use this opening to send arrows of suicidal thoughts into your mind. How do you fight this? You speak this verse: “I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord.” (Psalm 118:17) The enemy will present a thought to you and then try to reinforce it with a feeling, be it emotional or physical. (The Holy Spirit does not reside in our feelings or intellect, but in our spirit.) The enemy will do this repeatedly. This is called conditioning. The enemy may also
present you with a specific sin or situation in your mind to further his convincing accusation. He will tell you that you’ve messed up completely and there is no hope for you, but do not believe him! Remember this: “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” (Romans 8:1)

If you take the bait of the enemy and agree with the thought (agreeing can look like worrying about it, agonizing over it, trying to reason it out, researching it obsessively) he now has legal grounds to torment you with it. This is because you have unknowingly said yes to the
thought. If you do agree with the thought, immediately apologize to Father for partnering with the lie. This is how you practically and actively fight the lies:

Lie comes —> Speak verse out loud
Lie comes —> (if you agree with it in your mind) —> “I’m sorry Father for believing the lie over Your Word which says …—> Speak verse out loud
As you put this into practice, the volume of the once booming lies will start to go down until it disappears. You cannot use human reasoning to take these thoughts out because you are dealing in the spirit realm. God’s Word is the only thing that will dismantle and destroy them.
When you speak the Word of God you are wielding the sword of the spirit and enforcing spiritual law. Please be advised to shut down all doors to sin. If you fail to do so, it gives the enemy a foothold.
For maximum freedom, please attend the online prayer room in zoom. Deliverance from the spirit of condemnation needs to be cast out, along with others. Discipleship is a key element in staying free and that is something Deliverance Revolution excels in. Freedom from the lies of
the enemy is one of the many gifts that has been given to us by the miraculous work of the death and resurrection of Jesus, our beloved Savior.

In Him,
Hannah, follower of Christ
