In the Body of Christ there has been a spirit of assasination that has been released across body in this season. This spirit has partnered with divination or the python spirit to release words to pierce and wound one another. We are called to be a prophetic people to release the heart of the Father. In this season many have tapped into witchraft to curse, kill character, and murder our brothers and sisters in our hearts. This grieves the heart of the Father. We have to do better.
Divination is often aquated with the image of a snake. Prophetically snakes represent deceit, lies, manipulation, charm, and they have an ability to mesmerize before they go in for the kill. Many times we don't realize others around us are operating in it until we feel the sting of the venoumous bite. Divination hates the truth prophetic spirit. The true prophetic releases the heart of God, releases life, releases revelation, is able to shift things in the spirit. Divination is a false prophetic representation, and its goal is to kill. John 10:10 says, "The enemy comes to steal, kill, and destroy." We all have the ability to tap into divination when we have rebllion in our hearts, offense, and wounds. Those are gateways for the enemy to come in and start influencing us.
It's important as a prophetic people to continue ask the Lord to purify ours hearts and to heal wounded places. When issues are not dealt with in our hearts when can begin to partner with the agenda of hell, and become a mouth piece for hell instead of heaven. Our words carry prophetic power. When someone begins to operate in divination it may sound good, but to the discerning they can feel the motive and intention released behind the words. Their words are laced with venom to wound and kill in the spirit. Psalm 140:3 says, "They have sharpened their tongue like a serpent, poision is under their lips." In the natural when snake venon is released it immediately works to kill or paralyze. The same is true in the spirit.
Many in this season have been bitten by divination. Words that were laced with poison to kill and infect you, because the person releasing it is infected. Like Paul in Acts 28, we must stay close to the fire of God. The fire of God will bring out the snakes, but they won't be able to stand the heat. Divination cannot operate where the true fire of God resides, because its a purifying fire. For those who have been bit in this season allow the fire of God to purify and cleanse your wounds. I prophesy the sting of divination is breaking, The assingment that was intended to kill and wound you spiritually is breaking off now. In Acts 28, when Paul was bitten the people with him began to say he must be a murderer and they expected to him to die (Acts 28:4-5). But Paul shook off the sting of death, your haters are going to be surprised of your outcome. I prophesy every lie, slanderous word, gossip, manipulation, false accusation is falling off into the fire God. The Father is causing you to triumph over what meant to take you out.
