God hates slander. It is an evil work and deed. Slander occurs when someone shares something about someone with the intention of damaging the individual’s reputation. The fruit of slander is that it damages the perception of another individual in the mind of one or more people. This is a snare that the enemy is attempting to use to constrain the movement of the pioneers, but the Lord is releasing new assignments to his beloved to take dominion and push through this test. THERE WILL BE VICTORY.
Proverbs 6:16-19 ESV
“There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers.”
Paul lists slander as a behavior of those who hate God (Romans 1:30) and this is why James calls it demonic behavior (James 3:14-18):
James 3:14-18 ESV
“But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast and be false to the truth. This is not the wisdom that comes down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual,
demonic. For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there will be disorder and every vile practice. But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere. And a harvest of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.”
Slander is always the weapon of choice when the enemy seeks to prohibit the advancement of the pioneers. This weapon is cunning, but it is not match for the will of God. Pioneers, do not run into the cave at the sound of the mischaracterization of your name, this is your era to take dominion and reign. Slander is a snare that the fowler has set, but the Lord is a deliverer (Psalm 91:3).
When an enemy, who backed King Saul, attacked David’s right to the throne, David sought refuge and protection in God. The slander that David faced was so dangerous that he equated it to an attacking lion (Psalm 7:2). This slander was a threat to his reign and God responded by giving David protection because David took refuge in Him (Psalm 7:1). David’s willingness to depend upon God and not in his own strength is something that he repeatedly professed: “But You, Lord, are a shield around me, my glory, and the One who lifts my head.” (Psalm 3:3). Just as David found refuge in the Lord, you will find your refuge in Christ alone - not in the approval of men.
Psalm 7:1-3 ESV
O Lord my God, in you do I take refuge; save me from all my pursuers and deliver me, lest like a lion they tear my soul apart, rending it in pieces, with none to deliver. O Lord my God, if I have done this, if there is wrong in my hands, if I have repaid my friend with evil or plundered my enemy without cause, let the enemy pursue my soul and overtake it, and let him trample my life to the ground and lay my glory in the dust.
In prayer, I heard the Lord the say, “I AM BRINGING MY CHILDREN INTO A ERA OF UNPARALLELED VICTORIES. IT WILL A SIGN THAT I AM FOR THEM”.
As you continue to walk in the Spirit, and not after the flesh, there will no hindrance to your movement and advancement. The grace to take dominion is unlike anything we have ever experienced. The Lord said, “THE WORLD WILL KNOW YOU AS THE VICTORIOUS ONES. THEY WILL BE KNOWN AS THE ONES WHO WALK IN MY AUTHORITY AND MY APPROVAL”.
Be reminded that no one has authority to change God mind on slander. God is not susceptible to manipulation or the schemes of man. God is a faithful and righteous judge who can not be swayed by opinions. Even though the enemy desires to limit the mobility of the pioneers through murmurs and whispers of slander, but the Lord has already orchestrated a performance. The victories will be public.
These are the words I saw as I prayed into this word of deliverance and victory:
May God give you a peace that surpasses your own understanding. This is the place of dominion. Take over.
