For the next three days, we shall be looking at the subject ” the spirit of competitive jealousy “
The spirit of competitive jealousy is tearing down the fabric of the five fold ministry in the church today .
Jealousy is part of the works of the flesh :
Galatians 5:19-20 (KJV)
Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
Everyone that has partaken of the adamic nature has a little of it but there are those whose Jealousy is more than the works of the flesh but as a result of a being possessed by a demonic spirit .Jealousy is part of the works of the flesh but it is also identified as a spirit .There is what is known as the spirit of jealousy , the bible which is the true source of all knowledge identified jealousy as a spirit :
Numbers 5:14 (KJV)
And the spirit of jealousy come upon him, and he be jealous of his wife, and she be defiled: or if the spirit of jealousy come upon him, and he be jealous of his wife, and she be not defiled:
The spirit of jealousy comes upon people including Christians !!
Jealousy is not just a negative emotion in some cases ,it is not something natural or humane ,in most cases ,there is a demon behind it .
The spirit of Jealousy is a terrible spirit to be possessed with !
There are two kinds of jealousy in the bible: there is a negative jealousy and there is a positive one .
Elijah was jealous for the lord his God .
1 Kings 19:14 (KJV)
And he said, I have been very jealous for the Lord God of hosts: because the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away.
In the midst of apostasy , when unrighteousness and idolatry became the order of the day,Elijah was jealous for the lord his God .
This is when jealousy is positive . We need to have this kind of jealousy for the lord our God to effect the much needed changes in the church today . Beside being jealous for the lord God, any other forms of jealousy is evil and dangerous .
Furthermore , the bible described Jealousy as the rage of a man :
Proverbs 6:34 (KJV)
For jealousy is the rage of a man:
therefore he will not spare in the day of vengeance.
He will not regard any ransom;
neither will he rest content, though thou givest many gifts.
Wherever you find the spirit of jealousy ,You will find murder, rage,revenge,competition , frustration ,evil report and suspicion ; The spirit of jealousy does not walk alone ! Those possessed with this terrible demon have a company !
When you cast out the spirit of jealousy , you must cast out all that is associated with it also.
Jealousy is as cruel as the grave.
It is a very destructive spirit :
Song of Songs 8:6 (KJV)
6 Set me as a seal upon thine heart,
as a seal upon thine arm:
for love is strong as death;
jealousy is cruel as the grave:
the coals thereof are coals of fire,
which hath a most vehement flame.
Don’t let the vehement flame of the spirit of jealousy destroy you or people through you !
We shall continue tomorrow .
