In the fall of 2010, I was riding along slightly mesmerized by the beautiful colors of the fall season, when a power came on me to compel me to speak in tongues. As the first word tried to blurt its way out of me, I rebuked the demon sitting in full view of others waiting in their lane for the light to change. Out loud, I rebuked “this thing” not once but at least 3 or 4 times before I felt the compulsion to utter finally leave me.
I know what some of you are thinking. “Wasn’t that the Holy Ghost IN you, Pam, that wanted to use you to magnify God in the awesome beauty of His creation?”
To answer your question without going through a long teaching on tongues, I will respond this way.
The Holy Ghost is a Gentleman. He is God so He knows everything. As such, He knows that I no longer believe in the manifestation of speaking in tongues. Secondly, He would not endanger my life on a busy highway. Therefore, He would not approach me with tongues because He knows that I will not receive Him that way. The fact that I had to rebuke “this entity” more than once is an indication that the tongue that tried to manifest “was not God!”
So what I did 2 falls ago and ever vigilantly since is “protect my spirit.” In the quotation taken from the books of Luke and Matthew, “the house” is symbolic of man in spirit, soul and body. Protecting the body is extremely important to natural living, as our eternal nature of spirit and soul cannot function on earth without our bodies. The more my body ages, the more committed I am to protecting it. However, my concentration in this post is both the soul and the spirit..
Protecting what is totally invisible can be quite challenging. The first thing you need to become aware of is “the thief.” The thief is a Satanic agent that has been assigned to both you and to me from the moment of our birth. He is always there in the form of a religious fallen angel or demon that has been assigned to us. Even the Apostle Paul had a “thorn in his flesh sent to buffet or harass him.’
No need for me to fear the one that is assigned to me because if he could have “taken me out,” he would have done so already. Since he cannot “take me out” before my appointed time, his objective was to keep me on the broad way so that the light of the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ would not shine on me. However, once the Holy Spirit selected “my hour to be born again,” Satan’s agent failed. Even so, he has never given up. Nevertheless, I have resisted him to such an extent since 2003, that most of the time, he is “in flee” mode these days. He is really not concerned about me because my audience is rather insignificant. However, very soon, I will be committing thousands of dollars to a widescale marketing strategy. I am not for everyone. I realize that. I am called to the one who has already heard from the Lord about “such a time as this.”
The enemy will be quite concerned when I reach whom God has called me to reach. In the meantime, the goal of these posts is to “prepare you for the thief.” The thief desires to sift you like wheat by any means necessary.
Since the agent assigned to you has been watching you, he knows you, to a certain extent. When my agent “knew” me, he had lots of success. One of the strategies that he used against me was to threaten me or people close to me. My natural reaction to a threat is to fight, and meet the challenger face to face, toe to toe. However, once I am in the midst of a pre-fabricated battle, the agent sneakily attacks me from behind, namely, he comes against what I have left vulnerable and un-protected. Once my eyes became open to how the enemy was using me against myself, I no longer react to threats before “I watch and I pray.” Most of the time, the threat had no substance and it withers almost as soon as it came.
You ask “Well, why would the agent assigned to you approach you with tongues?” Because I have closed off all of the enemy’s doorways, and tongues is the only way he can reach my spirit. His biggest doorway that has been slammed shut is my dreams. I have trained my spirit to reject, even while I am sleeping, any subliminal message that is sent to discourage me or weaken me in spirit, soul and body. It is hard to describe but I have set up spiritual blockades. Even if the enemy agent is able to break through, my spirit automatically reacts aggressively.
