Envy/Jealousy

 

      “Many, if not all of you, My Precious Brides, find fault with yourselves and fall into the trap of comparing yourself to someone who has an outstanding attribute, but in fact you know nothing of their lives.  This comparison leads to discouragement over who I have fashioned you to be and leaves you open to the sin of envy, as well as emulating them so you distort who you truly are.

      “Firstly, I want you to know that no one is as they seem on the outside.  No, not one.  There is a hidden side to each of you, the side you have either conquered or are still hiding, hoping that it will some day die.”

      “To them, I was but a phantom, a deception who never existed. My overtures of love have been scorned now and replaced with bitterness, envy and pride.

      "Oh, how I lament for these who have slipped through My fingers.  Pray for them, dear ones, pray for their salvation. For the judgment they passed on this channel has become their own before the courts of Heaven.  Yet, never will I abandon them.  But do you understand? I offered them the choice fruits of My Kingdom: My love, My fellowship, My very heart.  And now all of that has been swept away and concealed under a carpet of bitterness woven with beguiling threads of self-righteousness, envy, pride and arrogance.

      “Oh, how they (demons) hate and even envy her (believers) freedom! It reminds them of all they forfeited when they rebelled against Me. And now they will never get it back - so they can't stand to see you happy, creating, praising, resting and loving Me. It reminds them of their bondage and what they gave up. Bitterly, they look back on their past, but even then their hatred for Me burns, and you are their target. All of My Brides, who I adore, targets for their malice - because they figure if they can't hurt Me directly at least they can do harm to My Brides and hurt them.”

      Sometimes that’s all we can do.  We can pray, “Lord, I’m willing to be made willing to forgive so and so.”  We have an invisible enemy who is constantly trying to cause us to fall and to lose grace.  He’s a reminding us of things and trying to make us jealous, get angry, and to make misunderstandings. 

      We had a week where I would say something, and you would hear something else, and then I would hear it differently.  We finally figured out that it was a demon trying to twist our words.  We started binding it.  The Lord told me that the demon in our communication was trying to cause division.  We both slowed down to take a look at that.

      “Oh, how I love each and every one that is seeking Me. That is why I am here to explain the direction they need to take. You know the things that offend Me. Sin offends Me very much. Sin in clothing, or lack of it, sin in violence, crime, hatred, gossip, backbiting, jealousy, adulteries. Soap operas are the epitome of sin and extremely noxious to Me. Like your-nose-in-fresh-dog-excrement noxious. I mean very, very bad. These things not only offend Me but also the Heavenly court, the angels and the saints. Yet in your world they are matter-of-fact, part of everyday life.”

      Yes, I am indeed blessed by my singularity.

      "Don't think for one moment that I love you any less for it. In fact, it endears Me to you, and all My Brides who see their littleness. This is the robe of humility Rick Joyner talks about. And Paul as well when he talks about boasting in his weaknesses. It is a mark of predestination to be so empty, poor and frail that in order to succeed you must have My Grace. In Heaven it is a great distinction. I wish that all My Brides would see things that way.

      "It would close a major door of attack against you. You see, the enemy is always downgrading and lying, ‘You are so stupid, what do you know, who do you think you are? God speak to you -LOL you've got to be kidding. You're a failure, you'll never amount to anything.’ Then he loves to stir you to sin through jealousy, ‘Look at so and so over there. Now they are something, they are brilliant and qualified, but you? LOL You'll never amount to anything. Everything you believe is a lie anyway. You'll see.”

      “Many are so sure they are ready to stand before Me, but they’re not taking a good look inside themselves or in My mirror. This concerns me, Clare. It concerns Me that they are so ready, and yet they still quarrel and bite at one another. They still gossip and tell lies about one another. They still accuse with impunity, thinking they are so right, and the other is so wrong.

      “Yet, I tell you, they are not ready to stand before Me. They are blinded by self-righteousness. They are on a crusade to set the world straight, but they are unfit for the Bridal gown. I cannot put a clean, white garment on those who are still jealous and destructive with their tongue. I cannot put that gown on anyone who does not love their brother as they love Me.”

      I'm really glad you said that, Lord - that You would have many followers. I don't want followers. Besides I'm not leading, You are!

      "This is very true, but nonetheless you will be misunderstood by those who have hidden agendas, jealousies, and just refuse to open their hearts. They will suffer the most. It is good for you to continue to teach how destructive judgment is to each soul. It is good for all of you to take these words to heart and not allow an entrance for pride and judgment.

      "My children, I have warned you again and again about judging, but when you judge My prophets you incur serious repercussions in your life, immediately. You will find that the results will be immediate, because I am trying to break you of this wicked habit. Do you understand, when you judge others and especially My vessels unto honor, that you invite in a host of demons to sift you and your family??

      "Do you understand that when you spread false reports about the innocent and slander their character that you have brought a curse down upon yourself? I have to tell you, you will see more and more division and strife among your friends for such behavior, because beneath it all there is spiritual jealousy, the most destructive force in My Body.

      "When you engage patterns of jealousy you actually oppose Me and the operation of My gifts and I will hold you accountable for the souls I could not reach because you spread lies about a vessel."

      We must first be able to love ourselves, or jealousy and fear will predominate in our relationships with one another. When you feel good, you don't want to criticize anyone. When you feel lousy about yourself, everyone is a pain.
