Too many of my friends have been fired, pushed out of their jobs or are being attacked right now by evil people who possess high positions or are avidly seeking them. I wish this was a fairy tale but it’s not. Those of you who have experienced it or are experiencing it now, know how terrible it is. I’m going to share God’s plan for you to be ab…le to take them down BEFORE they take you.
The Bible calls these powerful people “sons of Belial” or “workers of iniquity.” They willfully serve the devil and they attack Christians. Though we haven’t heard much about them in church, they are exposed over and over in the Bible. Their methods and characteristics remain the same and once you are aware of them, you will never NOT recognize them again.
In this article I’ll take the time to expose who they are and what they do. In next Sunday’s I give a real life incident and more about how to get rid of them.
They are “merchandisers of men” (2 Pet 2:3), using good hard-working people to work for them. Often they try to learn or extract skills from good people then use the skills to step on and over them to get to the top. They plot, manipulate and control. Often they are not the spokesperson, but the one behind the scenes, calling the punches. They oppress and strip people of personal idiosyncrasies. They would rather have an obedient automaton than a skilled worker who has a personality. In fact they don’t even care about your skills or how good you are at your job. Those are not attractive features anymore with these sons and daughters of Belial.
They desire to be applauded and put on a pedestal for all their good charitable works; but behind the scenes they are out to take down anyone they perceive as being in their way. They speak peace and work wickedness at the same time, speaking out of both sides of their mouths. They are extremely sneaky and try to befriend and snare people with their smooth words. They are never to be trusted.
As Proverbs 6:17-18 tells us, they have “a proud look, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that are swift in running to evil, a false witness who speaks lies, and one who sows discord among brethren.” These are just some of the general characteristics of these sons of Belial, or as Dr. Dale Sides calls them, SOBs. (I call them that too.) I suggest getting Dale’s booklet, Exposing Sons of Belial : Identifying and Overcoming Children of the Devil. The booklet is inexpensive and packed with information; it is because of the revelation in this booklet that I was able to overcome and defeat an SOB that entered into my own realm of influence. (I will tell you more about that in Sunday’s post.)
Just like Jesus defeated the devil in the wilderness with “the sword of the spirit, which is the word of God,” we can do the same. But what we believe and what we say has to be pertinent to the situation and the devil involved. God’s Word specifically tells us, “The sons of Belial cannot be taken with hands.” In other words, hand to hand combat DOES NOT WORK! You can’t afford to get too close to these powerful possessed people. They will recognize who you are.
“But the man that shall touch them must be fenced with iron and the staff of a spear” (2 Sam 23:7). If you are holding the staff of a spear, then there’s distance between you and the enemy. This is important to remember. You don’t want to try to talk to these people or make friends or try to love them. You can’t love the devil.
God is willing to take them back if they repent (see Ezekiel 18:32). But you are probably not going to be the one to deliver them. Of all the Christians Paul murdered, not one was able to deliver him; Jesus had to do it Himself! So don’t try to be a hero.
David was attacked by SOBs many times. Because of this, we have an entire arsenal of specific weapons God gave David to pierce these evil ones and bring them down. Many are found in the Psalms. These spears are sharp and not for the weak hearted; but if you or your friends are being attacked, you need the strongest, sharpest swords to win the battle. And, you must BELIEVE in their inherent power because they are God’s words.
“Let the high praises of God be in [our] mouth, and a two-edged sword in [our] hand, to execute vengeance on the nations and punishments on the peoples; to bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron; to execute on them the written judgment—This honor have all His saints. Praise the Lord!” (Psalm 149:6-9)
Following are the powerful scriptures I have successfully used. I say them almost every day. This coming Sunday’s article includes a list of others you can look up and use if they suit you better. Fight on to victory!
“God is angry with the wicked [SOBs] every day. If he [a SOB] does not turn back, He [God] will sharpen His sword; he bends His bow and makes it ready. He [God] also prepares for Himself instruments of death; he makes His arrows into fiery shafts. Behold, the wicked travails with iniquity, conceives trouble and brings forth falsehood. He made a pit and dug it out, and has fallen into the ditch which he made. His trouble shall return upon his own head, and his violent dealing shall come down on his own crown” (Psalm 7:11-16).
“Let their eyes be darkened, so that they do not see; and make their loins shake continually” (Psalm 69:23).
“Let those be put to shame and brought to dishonor who seek after my life; Let those be turned back and brought to confusion who plot my hurt. Let them be like chaff before the wind, and let the angel of the Lord chase them. Let their way be dark and slippery, and let the angel of the Lord pursue them” (Psalm 35:4-6)
NOTE: When the word “let” is used, we are the ones “letting.” We give the authority, but the angels do the doing! Satan has protected the SOBs and he has paid them well. They think they cannot fail, but without the heavy devil spirits, they will absolutely shrivel. When we pray these psalms, God’s angels attack the devil spirits that are protecting and helping the SOBs, and they are utterly stripped of their power over us.
“Their sword shall enter their own heart, and their bows shall be broken” (Psalm 37:12-15).
“Since it is a righteous thing with God to repay with tribulation those who trouble you” (2 Thess 1:6).
“God shall likewise destroy you [SOBs] forever. He shall take you away, and pluck you out of your dwelling place, and uproot you from the land of the living. Selah” (Psalm 52:5)
“Let death seize them; Let them go down alive into hell, for wickedness is in their dwellings and among them” (Psalm 55:15).
“Break their teeth in their mouth, O God! Break out the fangs of the young lions, O Lord! Let them flow away as waters which run continually; when he bends his bow, Let his arrows be as if cut in pieces. Let them be like a snail which melts away as it goes. Like a stillborn child of a woman, that they may not see the sun” (Psalm 58:6-8)
“Set a wicked man over him [SOB], and let an accuser stand at his right hand. When he is judged, let him be found guilty, and let his prayer become sin. Let his days be few, and let another take his office. Let the creditor seize all that he has, and let strangers plunder his labor. Let there be none to extend mercy to him” (Psalm 109:6-12).
If you still think that this is too harsh of a message then you probably haven’t been aware of SOB persecutions. The unfortunate thing is that if we are in their sites and we don’t start using these verses immediately, it’s much harder and sometimes impossible to get rid of them or escape their evil deeds.
But honestly, speaking these psalms against them is the most loving thing we can do. It can force them into a place where they would have a chance to see how horrible the devil really is and they could turn around like the Apostle Paul.
Enough for now. Stay tuned for Sunday’s post on an attack by an SOB and the great results of using these word spears to a victorious end. Also included will be a list of more of the scriptures God gave David to use against them.
Stay strong. I pray for all of you.
