The Spirit of Fear works with The Spirit of Rejection
1 John 4:17-18: Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
Extreme fear can break down a person’s defenses and take control of their lives out of their hands, thus creating an opening for the demonic.
• Fear can enter a person’s life even while they are in the womb
• Most times fear enters through a trauma in our lives
• Even from childhood
• Fear is like a gateway for other spirits to enter and nest
Common Fears are:
Fear of sickness:
Combat Scripture: Isaiah 53:5 • But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him, and with his stripes, we are healed.
Fear of failure:
Combat Scripture: Proverbs 3:5-8 • Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil. It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.
Fear of rejection: Combat Scripture: Ephesians 1:6 To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.
There is no fear in love; But perfect love casteth out fear
Great Love of God Scriptures
Jeremiah 31:3” The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.”
2 Peter 3:9“The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.”
John 3:16” For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
1 John 3:16” Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.”
Romans 5:8“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
THE EXTERNAL THINGS THAT HAPPEN IN OUR LIVES CAN HAVE AN INTERNAL EFFECT:
• Spirits that come in through traumatic events (fear, rejection, self-hatred, self-rejection, bitterness, abandonment, insanity, unloving spirits, competition, etc.)
We have a new life as a born-again Christian
2 Corinthians 5:17: Therefore, if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
Colossians 3:9-11: 9 Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;10 And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:11 Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all and in all.
Isaiah 43:18-19: 18 Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old.19 Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.
2 Corinthians 4:16-17: 16 For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;
Lamentations 3:22-24: 22 It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed because his compassions fail not.23 They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.24 The Lord is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him.
Revelation 21:1-3: And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
