Breaking All Chains
Setting The Captives Free
Coping With Negative Comments And Accusations
by Peter James
I was speaking to my friend,
who had recently undergone a major cancer operation.
She was doing quite well, but was a bit tired from time to time,
because of the very unpleasant associated treatment.
In our conversation, I could detect that there was something bothering her.
She then said that she was quite upset by the negative comments,
which her fellow Christians had been telling her.
She also wondered if people never thought about what they were going
to say before they spoke.
Several said that they knew of others, who had gone through the
very same operation, and the follow up treatment, and had died.
She just could not get it out of her mind, that maybe regardless
of the treatment, she was still going to die prematurely.
It was really bothering her.
My question for you is what advice would you give this person?
You cannot simply say just forget it, ignore what they are saying,
because if it were as simple as that, she would not have had a problem,
she would have dismissed it, and that would be the end of the matter.
This course of action was not working for her.
This was the advice that I gave, but I did not include any reference
at all to Satan, and neither did I say that by worrying she was at risk
of continuing to be ill.
All negative and accusative thoughts need to be vocally rejected immediately.
Sometimes an additional prayer should be said to nullify the negative event,
which might have been stated.
We need to be very clear indeed that there are no magic words,
which will remove all problems.
In other words we cannot resort to a piece of paper on which we have written
the formula down, and now we can face any situation.
It does not work that way.
In other documents, I have stated that I have a problem with the hymn,
‘Onward Christian Soldiers’.
It says: “Marching as to war”.
A few days ago another ‘believer’, said that he was always singing it,
as it was a favourite of his.
This person is always lecturing me on almost anything that I say.
I explained that I have a problem with those words.
I said, I am not marching as if I were going to war.
I am in a war.
It is not future, but rather it is present, and I am engaged in it,
day in and day out.
All that changes is the way it gets presented.
Negative and accusative words are all part of Satan’s warfare.
Revelation 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent,
called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world:
he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
Revelation 12:10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven,
Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God,
and the power of his Christ:
for the accuser of our brethren is cast down,
which accused them before our God day and night.
The following verse gives the principle of rebuking Satan,
in order to overcome him and his plans
Revelation 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb,
and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives
unto the death.
Negative and Accusative words have to be rejected the moment
that they are spoken to you, in your spirit,
and I would say vocally as soon as you get an opportunity.
If you do not take this action, these words will continue to eat away
at you and depress and upset you.
In my extensive document on Depression,
See the document: Depressed
I explained that depression is a spiritual condition,
much of it can be related to the input of negative thoughts,
and of course medication.
Words are either giving life or death.
It is one of the primary lessons of the bible,
starting in the book of Genesis.
These are life giving words.
A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.
Proverbs 12:25 Heaviness in the heart of man maketh it stoop:
but a good word maketh it glad.
Proverbs 15:23 A man hath joy by the answer of his mouth:
and a word spoken in due season, how good is it!
Proverbs 30:5 Every word of God is pure:
he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.
Death should always be rejected.
We must remember that as Satan is the father of lies,
often his words will be accusing you, or assigning situations to you,
which the Eternal God has not decreed, in order to terrify you.
This is precisely what happened to my friend,
it was implied to her that she would most likely die.
John 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your
father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning,
and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him.
When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar,
and the father of it.
When you rebuke the negative thought or accusation,
you could say words to the effect,
I reject these negative, or accusative words,
as they are not from the Eternal God.
I refuse to accept them as mine, in Jesus name.
If you wish you can further add that they are actually
from our adversary, Satan.
Amend the words to suit your position.,
my words are only a guide.
You must never be afraid to identify and tag Satan,
when he attacks you.
In fact he is relying on the fact that you would be far too frightened,
to do anything about it.
We need to make our environment as unpleasant for him as possible.
Give him so much grief that he prefers to go elsewhere.
If you do nothing about the negative words or accusation,
the seed which has been sown, will grow, and mature.
As I said it is no use printing this out, and just blurting it out.
As in all things you have to believe that you are actually
preventing these words from being sown into your being,
and if perchance they have been sown, you are rooting them out.
Like everything else, in Christian warfare, and this is what this is,
if you do not actually believe in what you are doing, it is pointless.
Also remember that even when the Eternal God corrects us,
it is neither negative or accusative.
The principle of rooting out undesirable words,
is the very same one that Satan uses against us,
so all that we are doing is turning the tables on him.
He tries to snatch away the Word of the Eternal God from us.
In a similar manner, we will uproot that which he tries to sow in us.
All the types mentioned in the parable of the sower,
are pertinent to us today.
Satan has a whole system set up to ensnare us
Matthew 13:3 And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying,
Behold, a sower went forth to sow;
Matthew 13:4 And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side,
and the fowls came and devoured them up:
Matthew 13:5 Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth:
and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth:
Matthew 13:6 And when the sun was up, they were scorched;
and because they had no root, they withered away.
Matthew 13:7 And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up,
and choked them:
Matthew 13:8 But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit,
some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold.
Matthew 13:18 Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower.
Matthew 13:19 When any one heareth the word of the kingdom,
and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one,
and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart.
This is he which received seed by the way side.
Matthew 13:20 But he that received the seed into stony places,
the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it;
Matthew 13:21 Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while:
for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word,
by and by he is offended.
Matthew 13:22 He also that received seed among the thorns is he
that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness
of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful.
Matthew 13:23 But he that received seed into the good ground
is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit,
and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.
A Personal extreme application.
On a transatlantic flight from the West Indies to the U.K.,
shortly after take off, the pilot welcomed us as normal,
and told us that we can expect severe turbulence around
one hour before we arrived in the U.K.
We must relax, enjoy the meal and have a sleep, if we wished.
How does one relax knowing what is up ahead ?
Here we were, trapped in an aircraft at 30,000 ft,
with around some 8 hours to relax or worry as we chose to do,
and with nowhere to go to escape.
I assure you that this qualified as an exceedingly negative situation.
My immediate reaction to this was to pray against the expected
traumatic situation, which was several hours away,
and for mercy on all the innocent passengers,
who had no real idea what was going on.
On more than one occasion Satan has tried to destroy aircraft
on which I was travelling.
Having prayed about the situation, I continued to relax and read,
as I normally do.Breakfast seemed to be served a bit early,
as the crew wanted the aircraft neat an tidy before we hit the turbulence.
I could sense the nervousness of the young crew,
as they went about their business, securing everything.
I just sat back and waited for the turbulence, which simply did not occur.
I had refused to accept that it was inevitable, and had prayed against it,
early in the flight as I stated above.
I must add a final proviso, which is this.
It is imperative that we are in a very good place in our relationship
with Christ, so that we are absolutely confident that He will regard
Right now I am in contact with several people,
who believe that now that we are under ‘Grace’,
they therefore reason that we can do whatever we like, and all be well.
I do not subscribe to this in the slightest.
The amazing thing is that not a single one of these people is in a good place.
Without exception, they are all in a very bad, and even fearful place.
I will do my utmost to ensure that I never ever go there.
When your life is in the balance, you need to be absolutely certain,
that you are standing on Holy and very solid ground.
My life depends on me being in a position to act immediately in the right
manner when the circumstances demand it.
This is in the reach of all believers, without any middle man,
as we state below and in all our documents and videos.
What are you going to do about it before it is too late?
