Stand for the Kingdom of God!

"Who among you is wise and understanding? Let him show by his good behavior his deeds in the gentleness of wisdom. But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your heart, do not be arrogant and so lie against the truth. This wisdom is not that which comes down from above, but is earthly, natural, demonic. For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there is disorder and every evil thing. But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, reasonable, full of mercy and good fruits, unwavering, without hypocrisy. And the seed whose fruit is righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace."
Jas 3:13‭-‬18 NASB

The "religious spirit" is identified above; the heart of bitter jealousy, selfish ambition, arrogant which lies against the truth is not what comes from above but from earth, natural and demonic,  ( For many deceivers have gone out into the world, those who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh. This is the deceiver and the antichrist. Watch yourselves, that you do not lose what we have accomplished, but that you may receive a full reward. Anyone who goes too far and does not abide in the teaching of Christ, does not have God; the one who abides in the teaching, he has both the Father and the Son. If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not receive him into your house, and do not give him a greeting; for the one who gives him a greeting participates in his evil deeds. 2 Jn 1:7‭-‬11 NASB)

The same spirit that existed in the leaders of Israel in Christ's day. Lead to His persecution to "shut Him up" but was not successful. So it went after His true representatives in the Church beginning with Antioch.

Christ came to restore truth against the religious corruption in the body. Same today.

Be in a true intimate relationship with Father. Be bold to speak through TRUTH when confronted with the lies of this religious spirit.

In Him, for Him, through Him,
Love,
Clint
