Spirit of Discord Exposed
“A naughty person, a wicked man, walketh with a froward mouth. He winketh with his eyes, he speaketh with his feet, he teacheth with his fingers; Frowardness is in his heart, he deviseth mischief continually; he soweth discord. Therefore shall his calamity come suddenly; suddenly shall he be broken without remedy.”
The word of God says that this person who sows discord is wicked. We know that the word of God is true, so we dare not question it in any way whatsoever. This person is called naughty, and has a froward mouth. The word forward means stubborn or disobedient, so this is a person who does things according to their own will and not the will of God. This person deviseth mischief continually…Meaning they are always stirring up trouble somewhere…this is usually an undesirable person. And they sow discord…meaning they are always in disagreement or strife with someone, for they love conflict. It is very obvious that these are not characteristics of a child of God.
If we search the scripture further, Proverbs 6:16 states “These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him, and skipping down to verse 19 it says that one of the things that the Lord hates is “A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.” It would be wise for all of us to take heed to these scriptures for they come with a woe to those who are operating in this spirit. Proverbs 6:15, states that “calamity comes suddenly; “suddenly” shall he be broken without remedy.”
We must remember that God is watching the agitator (the one who sows discord). Their wickedness will not go on forever, and God’s judgment will come when that agitator least expect it. My prayer today is Lord teach us to examine ourselves that we error not in this spirit. Teach us to walk in ways of peace and harmony with one another, learning to speak only that which you give us to speak in obedience, save us from being deceived so that we walk not in the flesh, but the Spirit of God, in Jesus name, Amen.
