21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
You can not fight evil with wickedness, you can not conquer injustice with crime. The fastest and most effective way to disable the venom, extinguish the flames, dull the edge, deflect the bullet is with the armor of LOVE!
The first of this arsenal is prayer. Recognizing that perhaps, if someone had prayed for that person, perhaps they would not be so vile, so low, so devoid of a conscience. Prayer over our enemies is the most powerful antidote and inoculation from their attempts to poison us with the ugly disease they carry; deception, discord, greed, hatred, ignorance, insecurity, jealousy, power, revenge, selfishness, strife.
From there, we may appeal to the HIGH court of the Holy Spirit, to witness to them, to speak to them, to that innermost part, that point of access that is only acknowledged within, between their own two ears; through dreams, thoughts, perceptions & recollections.
We are distracted by the result not realizing the cause. The evil is the cause, and the actions of the enemy are the distraction! This is where the enemy is hoping to infect us as well. By causing us to loose our cool, or to take matters to a level that God commands us is His domain and His right, not ours! When we allow God to intervene on our behalf, the supernatural override brings about the best resolution in ways that only God can arrange.
If you are ever presented an opportunity to be a blessing to one of these, take it. It may seem counter intuitive BUT we are of the mind of Christ, after all, not the mind of this world. If you could only see them in the true light, you would see them as a pitiful result of a plan to consume their soul. Evil has only one motive, to devour; it’s victims are those whom we call enemies, those that are hurt are the ones that hurt others. Until they deal with their transgressions, they are in a state of terrible peril. We must realize, it is by Grace through repentance & salvation, that we are spared from having to pay eternally for our transgressions, it is this knowledge, they clearly do not possess. We are to pray for them and if ever given an opportunity to bless them, take it and do so, to the best of your ability! Its the burden tipping point that makes all the difference.
I would highly suggest that you read Luke 6:27-30 and pray over it until it makes sense, until it no longer perplexes you, until the spirit yields the nugget of truth, until it sits well within you. (see below)
HEAVENLY FATHER, I pray and plead the blood of the lamb protection over me and mine, over you and yours, over all whom we hold dear, collectively and individually! Lord, I pray that we would see everyone more clearly, in the Light of Your Love toward all humanity. To bring everyone into alignment with Your word and truth. Let those who are at enmity with you be dealt with now, before they face eternal damnation. Let our witness be to them and have mercy Lord if our witness be against them. We trust they Yo go before us, dealing with our adversaries, Mightily! We trust that our enemies are your enemies and we surrender to the knowledge that You can deal better with them than we can. We rest in these assurances and know that none can pluck us from Your hands! In Jesus Mighty name, we pray AMEN
On the contrary: “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.”
Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.
He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city.
27 But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you,
28 Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.
29 And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloak forbid not to take thy coat also.
30 Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again.
1 Peter 3:9
9 Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing.
