Reflection: Spiritual Protocol Part II-Spiritual Backlash/Retaliation
The spiritual realms play by a different set of rules, order and conduct. You will do yourself, family and pillars of your life well to know and understand these truths.
Some have ministered to someone who was sick or in bondage and was barely out the door when everything began going wrong in their life. Many have came down with the same physical symptoms, some experienced strife in their homes, theft, others destruction, cars breaking down, accidents, sickness, appliances breaking, children getting hurt and numerous, endless other scenarios.
Important Key Points to Remember:
1. Do not Force your ministry on those who do not desire your ministry. You are Trespassing & Out of Order should you continue to do so. This includes your family, those you love and deeply care for. We cannot impose our will or desires on others even if it is right and Godly. To do this is operating in a form of witchcraft. Remember, our example is how the Father interacts with us.
2. Pray, minister etc. as you are lead by the Holy Spirit only. We must be sensitive to the Holy Spirit’s leading, direction and prompting. The Holy Spirit knows what we do not know. The individual Must Desire and Be Ready to be delivered and set free, otherwise, you are Trespassing & Out of Order. You cannot help or minister to someone who has no desire to change. They are comfortable and content in their current condition, naturally or spiritually. That is their right if they so desire.
3. After ministry to someone or a group, you must submit yourself Completely to God, break all spiritual links with this person or people and renounce any contamination or curse (s) that might have been received from the person or people. In addition, make sure you yourself are personally in the right standing with God and posturing in the spirit. Confess, Repent and Renounce sin, unholy connections, activity etc. if applicable. By doing this you are clearing your spirit and stopping the enemy from gaining a hold in your life.
If you keep these scriptural procedures and processes in mind before and after ministry, you will not experience backlashes in the spirit.

Reflection: Wake Up: An Enemy Has Done This!
Wake up Church, things will get worse before they get better. But, God will hide, protect, keep and sustain His people. However, this is no time to be spiritually stagnant, lazy, out of rhythm with God or asleep. Are you praying, watching and listening in the spirit? Do NOT believe or receive everything that the media outlets are presenting; only a small percentage of it is really true. They are propagating the agenda of the enemy, not that of the Kingdom of God. Don’t just watch, read or listen to the so called news or information without guarding your heart and rightly discerning in the spirit. Most of it is demonically inspired and driven to plant ungodly seeds in the heart. Those seeds grow to create, foster and maintain ungodly belief systems, mindsets, attitudes, and behaviors in the core of the soul (mind, will, and emotions, subconscious). All of this can and will destroy the fabric of our civilized society and Godly culture.
We need to recognize the work of the enemy and that there is a spiritual battle going on for the right to rule, Kingdom of Heaven or Kingdom of Darkness. All truth is parallel, meaning what we see is in the natural realm is only the manifestation of what is happening behind the scenes. We must fight in prayer; stand on the Word of God, cast down imaginations, sophisticated arguments and every high, proud thing which exalts itself against the knowledge of God. We must also obey the Word and the promptings, unction, direction and guidance of the Holy Spirit in order to reclaim and maintain that which is right and Godly. Church, we must be discerning, wise, knowledgeable, bold and courageous in this hour!
2 Corinthians 10:3-6 (AMP)
For though we walk in the flesh [as mortal men], we are not carrying on our [spiritual] warfare according to the flesh and using the weapons of man. The weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood]. Our weapons are divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. We are destroying sophisticated arguments and every exalted and proud thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought and purpose captive to the obedience of Christ, being ready to punish every act of disobedience, when your own obedience [as a church] is complete.
Matthew 13:24-28 (AMP)
Jesus gave them another parable [to consider], saying, “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field. But while his men were sleeping, his enemy came and sowed [a]weeds [resembling wheat] among the wheat, and went away. So when the plants sprouted and formed grain, the weeds appeared also. The servants of the owner came to him and said, ‘Sir did you not sow good seed in your field? Then how does it have weeds in it?’ He replied to them, ‘An enemy has done this...

Reflection: Spiritual Protocol Part I
There is protocol, rank and order for the divine and demonic kingdoms in the spiritual realms. The enemy understands this oftentimes better than we do as People of God. We do not have to tolerate illegal, unwarranted attacks and harassment from the enemy. This can be directed towards you, your family or any pillar of your life.
We have the authority and power to speak the Word and rebuke him in the name of Jesus. But we must be fully submitted to God and in a place of obedience. When we are out of order and not in the will of God, it undermines and weakens our authority and power in the spirit. This makes our words weak, hollow and powerless.
Sin is the only way the enemy is given legal, warranted, authority to attack anyone. If there is a doorway open in someone's life, it must be closed. This will prevent the enemy from entering by that same avenue. The term or coined phrase “spiritual doorway” is used to describe the avenue for sin operating in a person’s life, either directly, through spiritual contamination or outright rejection of the Word.
Some ways the enemy may have license to operate may include, but may not be limited to: witchcraft, immoral sexual behavior, drugs, generational sins, spiritual contamination, rebellion etc. The avenue by which the enemy has entered someone’s life must be identified, all sin repented before God, renounced and closed with prayer. Once you are delivered and free, maintain it by turning completely away from sin and giving no place to the enemy in your life.
James 4:6-7 (AMP)
But He gives us more and more grace [through the power of the Holy Spirit to defy sin and live an obedient life that reflects both our faith and our gratitude for our salvation]. Therefore, it says, “God is opposed to the proud and haughty, but [continually] gives [the gift of] grace to the humble [who turn away from self-righteousness].” So submit to [the authority of] God. Resist the devil [stand firm against him] and he will flee from you.
