Many times we think we should keep silent about abuse. Your taught to keep quiet when you suffered any kind of abuse. That is really sad, is this what you wanna teach our new generation? thats its okay? wether its in a home, or in church. Let’s talk about it…
I have been re-forming myself a lot lately, and a lot of that has to do with my mindset…you can NOT begin to change your life, without sowing seeds of NEW THOUGHTS in your mind. Operating from that old auto pilot mind frame causes same cycles to just be on repeat…but its all up to YOU!
As i write today, I am exposing manipulation in the CHURCH… God has opened my eyes in a very keen way. I’ve waited for years to expose it. There are a remnant of people that I am sure see it, but think they should just tolerate it. I will no longer be silent about it.
Disclaimer: THIS IS NOT FROM A PLACE OF RESENTMENT. This is from of level of my freedom, and revelation, as did the prophet Ezekiel did when he wrote about what God revealed to him about the church…
Starting with leadership… They use manipulative tactics to lead their congregation, sadly in my beginning of leading I partook of this myself. I thought it was the way. I even noticed back then I would allow my flesh to act funny, and be self-righteous about it, to validate my behavior. Back then, I had this issue with low esteem…so Pastors picked up on that, and used it as a power tool for their personal gain. Anytime I wanted to do anything outside of their church I was rebuked. And because I wanted to please God, I tried to submit to it. Fast forward… prophesying to people out of your flesh is just that flesh. Using the pulpit to throw off on people is not Gods way. Yes, God will use us to deal with things as He leads us.
Witchcraft is right in the church. Manipulations, narcism, power struggles. I no longer want to partake of the mess that goes on. One in particular recently came under my post and threw a slur off under my photo…really they use that as a tactic so I could come running to their church by using craftiness…before it would have worked, but now I’m more aware of how manipulation works. I deleted the comment, called my friend and told them what happened.
Before, bae use to try to open my eyes, but because I focused on their title and their soothing ways, I was blinded by that. The whole time, I did not heed wisdom, so I got hurt. That could have been avoided if I had just listened.
Proverbs 4:23 Keep and guard your heart with all vigilance and above all that you guard, for out of it flow the springs of life.
Also, you must take time to heal in your soul from deep seated issues, if not, you’ll let people play with you.
