I saw 2 people standing side by side, identical in every way. Suddenly, the person on the right began to glow from within. At the same time, many voices began chattering indiscernible words as black marks began to appear on the person on the left.
Whenever the person on the right acknowledged the black marks, they also appeared on him /her. Soon the person on the right was totally attentive and responsive to the black marks on the other person. This caused black marks on the person on the right to increase at a frantic pace. The light that initially glowed in that person became dim and was no longer visible. Ultimately, both people fell dead to the ground.
Wow-what a strange vision! But, then the Lord gave me the understanding. The 2 people are actually one person. The person on the left represents the physical body; the one on the right is our spiritual body. The inner glow is the light of truth, God’s Word, in our spirit-man. When the Word of God is sown in our heart, tribulation is sure to oppose and challenge it. Thus the chattering voices speaking negative words over us. Accusations that carry blame, shame, rejection, poverty….bold proclamations of incurable diseases, virus, cancer…..thoughts of suicide, unworthiness, etc.
The good news is destructive things against us initially can’t take root – they are resting upon the “old man” who died with Christ. In the resurrection power of new birth, all things have been made new! Our faith must also be firmly grounded on the true report that Jesus not only took upon Himself our sins, but also every sickness and infirmity. That is why scripture tells us by His stripes we are healed! Isaiah 53:5
However, if we begin to respond to these accusations, we give them permission to affect us. The more we yield and come into agreement with these “lying / false symptoms”, the deeper they become entrenched and manifest in our body or circumstances. Eventually, the person no longer lives in the spirit and is totally focused on the condition of their physical body and circumstances. The way a person thinks in his heart is how he is. Prov 23:7
So this is why we are called to be “overcomers”. An overcomer is a person who defeats, gains a victory over, overtakes, masters, subdues all obstacles and difficulties. Read Rev 22:11
Learn to overcome speaking and acting in agreement with false reports!
