I pray all of you are well.
Here is an article I wrote in 2019.
I pray it ministers to you all.
I used to wonder how is it for months and even years there seemed to be an effortless delivery of the Word of God and flow of the Holy Spirit when working with and fellowshiping with certain people.
This river would just open up and anointing would pour out and it was great joy.
Then, out of nowhere it is like the fountain was turned off.
I wanted to see the same joy and release but the Holy Spirit was not moving.
I would feel a sour feeling but I couldn't understand why.
Then months later after communication was non existent the full manifestation would appear and come out of the person or even a group of people.
The spirit of dishonor.
Even though it had not been expressed to me (my soul) my spirit man and definitely the Holy Spirit knew that dishonor was brewing in the heart.
The Holy Spirit is not able to pour into dishonor, usurption, undermining, pride, rebellion etc ... Even if He speaks the hardness of heart and wrong agenda does not let the person receive.
Instead of feeling empowered after speaking with some individuals, I would feel drained.
Once again dishonor.
Dishonor wants what you have but not who you are.
Once it seems you cannot offer what they want, the real manifestation of the heart begins to emerge.
This is what happened to Judas.
In John 6:70 Jesus says have I not chosen you and one of you is a devil?
In the original language it is a progression and literally means one of you is becoming more like the devil.
You did not start off devilish but unfortunately a door was open that allowed a demonic personailty to grow up with you.
Even though the desire of Christ was to impart, teach and develop Judas to be an Apostle, Judas had other ambitions that blinded him to why he was called.
This ambition grew over the course of 3 1/2 years until it finally fully manifested at the Passover meal.
Luk 22:3 Then entered Satan into Judas surnamed Iscariot, being of the number of the twelve.
Joh 13:2 And supper being ended, the devil having now put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, to betray him
It caused him to dishonor the Lord
John 13:27 And after the sop Satan entered into him. Then said Jesus unto him, That thou doest, do quickly.
There is a difference between a thought entering into a person and them taking on the embodiment of a spirit.
Judas went from being called as an Apostle to the Lord to being used by the enemy.
He was used to accomplish something that needed to happen but his heart of dishonor cost him his soul.
Dishonor blinds a persons heart from seeing another person for who they are and building genuine relationship.
Pro 30:15 The horseleach hath two daughters, crying, Give, give. There are three things thatare never satisfied, yea, four things say not, It is enough
Once desire is not met the heart grows cold and calloused towards the one they feel did not give them what they deserved.
Christ gave Judas the same power and authority as the other Apostles in Matthew 10:1
He became blinded by his own ambition and derailed his walk with the Lord.
The Love of Christ never changed toward him as he kissed him and called him friend.
Stay true to the Lord Saints and guard your heart as that will guard your motives.
Why am I doing what I am doing?
