Contention

In the bible, both the old and new testament, we read scriptures that continually speak about strife, contention, and division. For example, the Corinthian church (1st Corinthians) experienced quarrels that the Apostle Paul had to address. Likewise, the book of Proverbs mentions strife and contention several times as A warning for the reader.

  • James 3:16 KJV For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.
  • Proverbs 22:10 AMP Drive out the scoffer, and contention will go away; Even strife and dishonor will cease.
  • Proverbs 13:10 Only by pride cometh contention: But with the well advised is wisdom. ‘

Contention defined: Synonyms – Discord, Strife, Conflict, Dissension, Variance An act or instance of contending.

A contentious spirit: The spirit of contention brings forth strife, divisions, and disunity. Those who have a combative spirit are bound by hatred, resentment (bitterness), and anger. Operating in such a spirit will also open the door to discord (disharmony in the home and church), constant debates, and disputes (arguments). Pride and selfishness usually are at the root, along with A spirit of envy.

A Kingdom divided: There is no wonder why we as Christians are supposed to be united,  but there is A contrary force that contends against the body of Christ—specifically designed to stop unity. Our adversary (satan) understands that agreement is essential amongst the saints of God. For how good it is for brethren to dwell together in harmony. For that is where the anointing flows, and blessings are commanded. Psalms 133

When we are A kingdom divided, we cannot stand. That is why, down in the souls/heart of man, our adversary has strategically placed his rebellious spirits in us to cause division, disunity, and strife.

Mark 3:24 If a kingdom is divided [split into factions and rebelling] against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.

God is raising his saints to be an end-time army of selfless individuals. We are supposed to have an unselfish concern for one another; we have to get to the root issue to drive out the scoffing spirit, which will cause contention to cease. Let us examine some scriptures to understand how this works or may already be in operation in our lives.

Original design: God created the woman for man; he said it is not suitable for man to be alone. Women were created to be: A helpmeet, opposite, someone suitable, and complementary. She was designed to be A faithful companion. (Gen 2)When Adam saw his helpmeet, he called her the name EVE, which means “life-giver” women were created to bring forth life.

Due to the fall of man, we have strayed far away from our original design. Women are now independent and exalted above the man, and this is not the woman GOD created; instead, this is A foreign woman. A foreign (strange) woman is someone opposite of what God created us to be.

The Contentious Woman:

  • Proverbs 21:19 It is better to dwell in the wilderness, Than with a contentious and an angry woman.
  • Proverbs 27:15 A continual dropping in a very rainy day And a contentious woman are alike.

A contentious woman is quarrelsome; she constantly nags, criticizes, and cannot be restrained. When she nags, she continuously harasses those around her. This woman also is very critical, always grumbling, complaining, scolding, and fault-finding. Nothing is ever good for the contentious woman. When someone is nagging, it shows they lack trust in God, which causes anxiety, worry, and self-consciousness. The bible also calls this woman odious, which means she is unloved and obnoxious.

An odious woman is repulsive, repellent, offensive, hateful, opinionated, and disagreeable. This means this woman (or wife) is rebellious; she rejects all legitimate authority. The Odious Woman

Miriam & Aaron Numbers 12: Miriam showed signs of being A contentious woman when she spoke against Moses. A contentious/odious woman will always contend against male leadership. She asked, “has the Lord really spoken only through Moses? Has he not also spoken through us?” God heard her, and she became leprous; remember GOD will contend against those who contend against his people.  

Women must repent if they identify with being contentious; A contentious woman is under the influence of A Jezebel spirit.

The Contentious Man:

  • Proverbs 26:21 Like charcoal to hot embers and wood to fire, So is a contentious man to kindle strife.
  • Numbers 17:10 But the Lord said to Moses, “Put Aaron’s rod back before the Testimony [in the ark], to be kept as a [warning] sign for the rebellious and contentious, so that you may put an end to their murmurings [of discontent] against Me, so that they do not die.”

A contentious man love to kindle strife; he has A warring spirit that causes him to contend with others. He is also argumentative, depressive, and hostile. On the other hand, contentious men operate in an Ahab spirit.

Excerpt from the book “Jezebel, Seducing Goddess of War.” Goddess of War

“Scripture tells us Ahab walked in the sins of Jeroboam; if you study Jeroboam, his name means

To Contend or The Contentious One” Ahab walked in like manner. The Ahab-influenced person has several basic characteristics. One characteristic is that they will nit-pick you and contend with you on even minor things.  You can tell them the truth, and they would want to argue with you about another point. This person is always contrary and can never find their place in the body of Christ. He has to keep the fire going by kindling strife. (My emphasis added)

“It is almost like having A person say to you, “I love you, but I’m going to contend with you just because that’s my nature.” To be more accurately stated, it is their rebellion. Like the contentious woman, contentious men should repent.

A call to unity: We can overcome these spirits with humility and the wisdom of God. Pride causes strife, but the humble person will not allow the flame to keep burning.

  • Proverbs 21:24 “Proud,” “Haughty,” “Scoffer,” are his names Who acts with overbearing and insolent pride. ‘
  • Proverbs 17:14 ‘The beginning of strife is like letting out water [as from a small break in a dam; first it trickles and then it gushes]; Therefore abandon the quarrel before it breaks out and tempers explode. ‘
  • Proverbs 29:8 Scoffers set a city afire [by stirring up trouble], But wise men turn away anger [and restore order with their good judgment]. ‘

We are called to unify on one accord in the body of Christ. Men and women are not separate no part can be left out. We need every member fitly joined together to make the complete body. Each member in the body of Christ is called to wrap themselves in unselfish love, which is the perfect bond of unity for everything is bound together in agreement when each one seeks the best for others Colossians 3:14.

Philippians 2:3 AMP Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit [through factional motives, or strife], but with [an attitude of] humility [being neither arrogant nor self-righteous], regard others as more important than yourselves.

In closing, these spirits Ahab & Jezebel, are the enemies of the cross of Jesus Christ. They are assigned to the church and homes to bring forth disharmony into the body of Christ. Their assignment is to stop true unity. Beware of Dogs!

Philippians 3:1-3

Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. To write the same things to you, to me indeed is not grievous, but for you it is safe. Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the concision. For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh. ‘

I pray this teaching was enlightening to you; God bless and keep you all!

Spiritual Gateways of the Body

Rev 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hears my voice, and open the door, I will come into him and will sup with him, and he with me.

What is A Gate?

A gate is A place of authority, A place of security, gates control exit, and entry into An area. The door in your home is A gateway; the fence in your backyard is A gate. You have the authority to open or close the doors and gates in your home. Other words for gates: (borders, boundaries, portal, and door).

In ancient times, gates were significant because the strength of the gate determined the safety of a city. If the enemy stormed the gate and succeeded, the horses and chariots of war would enter into it. So, when the gate came down, the city was conquered.

Although the gates mentioned above are concerning physical gates, we must know there are spiritual gates as well. Our enemies stand at the gates awaiting entry. There are several demonic gateways the devil use to enter in and defile our soul. In ancient times, whoever controlled the gates had dominion and power in their grasp.

1st Peter 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because of your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

Essential Facts About spiritual gates:

  • Our enemies will plot and wait at our gates: Judges 16:2 And it was told the Gazites, saying, Samson has come hither. And they compassed him in, and laid wait for him all night in the gate of the city, and were quiet all the night, saying, In the morning, when it is day, we shall kill him
  • Sin crouches at our door/ gates it desires to overpower us: Genesis 4:7 If you do well [believing Me and doing what is acceptable and pleasing to Me], will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well [but ignore My instruction], sin crouches at your door; its desire is for you [to overpower you], but you must master it.”
  • There are gatekeepers at gates: Joshua 20:4 And when he that doth flee unto one of those cities shall stand at the entering of the gate of the city, and shall declare his cause in the ears of the elders of that city, they shall take him into the city unto them, and give him a place, that he may dwell among them.
  • There can be A breach in our gates: Ezekiel 26:10
  • Our gates/walls can be broken down: Proverbs 25:28 Like a city that is broken down and without walls [leaving it unprotected] Is a man who has no self-control over his spirit [and sets himself up for trouble].

Before I list the major gateways, we must know our battle is internal. Anytime we’ve opened the door to sin we’ve given our enemies A legal right into our lives (Just A Jesus stands at the door and knock in Rev 3:20) our enemy knocks at the door, and many of us have answered. When you are born again, you must patiently possess your soul.

Major gates the enemy uses to access our lives (among many):

  • Eye Gate: This is important as your eye (if healthy) gives light to your entire body. Your eyes are the lamp of your body. Through this gateway, once it is defiled, a strong spirit of lust, pornography, etc. can enter in. Jesus also warned us if our eyes cause us to sin, it is better to gouge the eye out rather than enter into Hell with two eyes.  Job also made A covenant with his eyes to not lust after women. Our eyes are like the lens of A camera; it takes A picture and transfers it to our spirit. In Psalm 101, David states, “I will set no wicked thing before my eyes.” In Jesus warning to the Laodicean church, he advised them to anoint their eyes with salve so they can see. We must be careful what we watch on TV, Phone, etc. all of these are devices the enemy can use to defile our eye gate. Matthew 6:22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single; thy whole body shall be full of light.
  • Ear Gate: The Bible says, “Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” The opposite is additionally true if we listen to the lies of satan, i.e. (worldly music, his false ministers, his accusations, etc.) Listening to the wrong thing will affect our hearing gateway. When our hearing gateway is defiled, it will make it hard for us to hear the truth of God’s word. Verbal Abuse and any negative speaking can cause A blockage to this gate and cause spirits or rejection and death to enter.
  • Mouth Gate: Our words hold power; we are instructed to bridle our tongue. Though it is A little member, it can cause significant damage. Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. Proverbs 18:21 Beware of the idle words you speak over yourself and others, we will be judged for every idle word we speak. We must also remember not to use our tongues to speak curses one minute and blessings the next Can both fresh water and salt water flow from the same spring?
  • Sex Gate: The sex gate is the most successful gate used by Satan. There is practically nothing the enemy cannot do to someone who is sexually perverse. Once you engage in sex outside marriage, or any illicit sexual sin, i.e. (oral, anal, sodomy, masturbation, etc.) you’ve allowed an open the door to the enemy. The command in GOD’s word is to “flee fornication every other sin A person commit is outside the body but the person who commits fornication, sins against his own body.” (1st Corinthians 6:18) Fornication is not only committed by those who are unmarried, but those who are married as well, (Adultery, pornography, uncleanliness) are all considered fornication as well. We must flee sexual sin, and we are told (if married) we should not defile our marriage bed, (this means our marriage bed can be defiled. If you’re not married, you’re to flee (run from) fornication as well. We must close the door to this perverse sex gate.

How to overcome:

1.    If you are not A Christian, you have to surrender your life to JESUS.

2.    Repent of your sin (this is key to starting your born-again process, you must repent of your sin). 

3.    Conquer the giants that are within your gates (by the power of the Holy Spirit)

4.    Renew your mind daily by reading God’s word, Know and meditate on God’s word (Through knowledge the righteous are delivered Prov 11:9)

5.    Restore the spiritual gates in your life (Read Nehemiah)

6.    Stay in prayer and couple it with fasting to pull down the strongholds in the gateways.

The gates named above are gates our enemies use through our five carnal senses (touch, taste, smell, Seeing, and Hearing). There are also gates we have access to as well:

  • Jesus is the door/gate to the father: John 10:9 I am the door(gate): by me, if any man enters in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
  • The Narrow and Wide Gates (Chose Wisely) Matthew 7:13-14 Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad and easy to travel is the path that leads the way to destruction and eternal loss, and there are many who enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow and difficult to travel is the path that leads the way to [everlasting] life, and there are few who find it
  • We can possess the gates of our enemies: Gen 22:7
  • Pray and ask GOD to guard our gates to stop anything unclean from entering in: 2Chronicles 23:19 Jehoiada stationed the gatekeepers [at the gates] of the house of the Lord, so that no one would enter who was in any way unclean (Jehoiada means “Knowledge of the Lord”).
  • Gates of Thanksgiving & Praise: Psalm 100:4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
  • Gates of Righteousness: Psalm 118:19 Open to me the gates of righteousness: I will go into them, and I will praise the LORD:

In closing, we must know, meditate upon, and understand Gods word. We are more than conquers in Christ Jesus. Be courageous, and destroy the strongholds in your life, through the power of the Holy Spirit, you can overcome sin.

Most importantly Guard your heart with all diligence; for out of it flows the issues of life (Prov 4:23)

God Bless,

Tanicia

Spiritual & Physical House Cleaning

It’s springtime, and many are planning to clean their homes, offices, and personal spaces. De-cluttering & organization is at the top of their lists. Although cleaning, organizing, de-cluttering, is A good thing very few people give A second thought about cleaning their spiritual house.

Our bodies are considered A temple, and we should treat it as such. We must guard what we allow in because the devil plan is to steal, kill, defile and ultimately destroy us.

John 10:10 NKJV
10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life and that they may have it more abundantly.

Sin opens the door for demonic spirits to enter our lives. Its time we close every doorway we’ve opened to the enemy. In Matthew 12:43-45 and Luke11:24-26 scripture tells us that when an evil “unclean spirit” is gone out of our bodies [if it should try and come back] it should never find the house empty, swept, and garnished. The above scripture is referring to our (body) and also our home.

Empty, Swept and garnished refers to our spiritual lives we must continually remain in Gods presence. Prayer, Reading Gods Word, Fasting, Praise & Worship are all necessary for our spiritual growth. We must keep our mind on the Lord.

We also can have spiritual freedom by removing objects from our home that brings curses & sin into our lives. There are unclean cursed objects in homes that we need to rid out of our lives and house. These cursed objects can open A doorway for evil spirits to enter into our home. We must be vigilant and use discernment with the items we allow into our home.

As mentioned above, we need to rely on the Holy Spirit to lead us and guide us in all things. He is our teacher, comforter & the Spirit of Truth he will give us wisdom in all things.

Deuteronomy 7:26: Neither shalt thou bring an abomination into thine house, lest thou be a cursed thing(banned, a doomed object, dedicated thing) like it: but thou shall utterly detest it(loathe it), and thou shalt utterly abhor it; for it is a cursed thing

As we can see from the scripture above, God considers the accursed objects an abomination. A cursed object is something that is banned and dedicated to a false god. We can now understand why we are commanded to destroy these items and abhor them quickly. God wants to see his people set free, and the devil wants to keep us bound. Be vigilant sisters & brothers.

Pray over everything you purchase for your home, anoint all items with oil. I also recommend anointing the food you are buying from your local market place. Satan is crafty he is always on the prowl seeking whom he may devour. Wisdom, discernment and living A Holy separated life is essential. Please CLOSE THE DOOR TO SIN, and the EVIL OBJECTS it doesn’t matter how unique the item is if the Holy Spirit shows you an accursed object in your home we must obey and utterly destroy it.
“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:” (1 Peter 5:8)

I’ve provided A link with A list of accursed objects that we may have ignorantly allowed into our home. I will name a few below but, for a more detailed list, please click the URL below. As always, there is a prayer to follow.

  • Cursed Objects List (This includes items I have seen personally and owned)
  • Crystal Ball

**Quick Note**

Just because you are newly saved/ or saved doesn’t mean that the demonic attack is going to stop cold turkey. We have to honestly keep our minds focused on Christ with praying in the spirit and filling up our lives with true praise & worship, reading the word daily and prayer.

Deliverance may be necessary, remember all the years we spent in SIN our soul was contaminated. Remember I said these spirits have legal rights, you must close each doorway. Confess your sins and repent! Break Soul Ties— 1st Corinthians 6:16 What? Know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh.

Article about soul ties with a prayer of repentance. http://www.greatbiblestudy.com/soulti…

Flee Sexual Sin— 1st Corinthians 6:18 Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.

Rev 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death 1st Corinthians 6:9-10 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived.
