This teaching by Ahyal has been a cornerstone of my own prayer walk as I fight against Jezebel and Leviathan spirits every moment.
I do not wish to walk with these spirits. But I often see the effects of them in others and in how I am treated by others. But I can forgive because I know these spirits are relentless and very pervasive. And they "feel" good when folks walk with them. Therefore, folks just don't fight against them. And the word of Ahayah, in both sticks, mentions FORGIVE multiple times. So I will gravitate toward forgivness every time. Even if folks think of that as a sign of weakness. It's obedience to Ahayah. That's all I can control...my own obedience. As someone who has experienced the effects of being shunned or ostracized, or gossiped about by those who are walking in jealousy or a need to control or who see me as “gullible”, I know these two forces are real.
I fight against them. Because the love of Ahayah feels way better than Jezebel or Leviathan can ever feel. Fortunately I have developed my prayer life since this original post and fasting helps too. It’s a growing process. I pray this lesson reaches those with ears to hear. And if it doesn’t resonate with you, I’m ok with that too. I have no desire to control anything but my own walk. Shalom
