Paul dealt with whisperers in the church, especially Corinth. Twice he had written to them about backbiting, slander, and whisperings that led to disorder and confusion. For the third time, he rebuked them, saying that he feared that they had been corrupted and deceived, just as Satan had deceived Eve. Whisperers can tear up a church, maligning leadership and wounding members.

When Satan whispers fallacious thoughts to a person’s mind, they must be taken captive immediately when they are just a thought, a notion or suggestion. If not, they can become strongholds of deception that must be pulled down. It is easier to take a thought captive, and bring it into the obedience of Christ, then to have to pull down a stronghold.

Greetings friend to new listeners and welcome to the sound. I'm sure not thanking you for joining us today because we know Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. Today's message is a true eye-opener and your arrester the whisper in Genesis and Revelation. Satan is called a serpent. The Hebrew word is not clash, and it verb form means to with birdlike that his of a snake from the moment he beguiled Eve in the garden, Satan has been whispering his cunning lies and accusations against God and his true people because he is the whisper he whispers here. I think everyone is more powerful than the other. Now that I'm going along here. Fear is so powerful it can cripple people can cripple people today can even hardly function. They can cripple them so they cannot enjoy the blessings God has in their lives. They are so afraid of everything, and I'm not surprised because it was the first negative emotion that mankind ever felt when the story goes on to tell us and then they went ahead came walking in the day where I and he said well I hated because I was up I tell you things I don't know how many times through the years that people have come to me and their prayer request is a spirit of fear, and I can identify with it I understand it, because I was on direct I came under it very strongly and I told those testimonies before how I got delivered so I won't do it today, but I understand how strong a spirit of year is I had it from the child as a little child I had and that as I grew up acting to overcome it and I didn't have it for many many many years and then it hit me again hard when I had the back issue so I understand the fear of things that the devil says to you, sometimes you tell you you and you can become so real to you that you start having symptoms in your body, you never even had before. I know that that is true. I know it so slander whispers of slander and this is blasphemy and you know people always think that blasphemy can only be done against God, they always connect blasphemy against God, but you read the New Testament you all.

He said you can blaspheme against other people and a lot of times they were outright lies in the thing about his he has so clever and crafty.

He has the ability to make down true. To make it seem so plausible to make it seem true. We look to Greeks and now we see the Hebrew word for subtle it means to be shrewd, crafty, cunning and sly again. The word here in the Hebrew.

The idea is that it's hard to distinguish between two things. The difference is so subtle that it's hard to differentiate between the two of them, the distinction between them is not obvious immediately. A subtle difference and you know it happens a lot of times in a good way you know you're going to paint your bedroom a new color okay were going to make it a blue bedroom now and so now you have bought your bedding and so now you gotta go the store get paid. You want to make sure that blends so you you pretty sure you know what color you want, or vice versa.

You've already painted the room. Now you're going to go look for Betty. Whichever way and you going to the paint store and you think okay were going to get a light blue. Therefore million 235 swatches of light blue and you're like, this is just blue put it next to your bedding and decor one after another, one after another, you know, you think that it is the same color but when you get them next to each other. There is a subtle difference.

Amen. It's that subtle difference fees. Sometimes saints. It's not a matter of deserting between right and wrong.

That's not subtle. It does learning between right and almost right. Amen. That's where the devil gets in and whispers in your ear. Amen. He uses words of reasoning to camouflage his true intent. So what is the nature of half the time Jesus said in John 1010 the thief personifying Satan is, but that means the only thing he's come for to kill and to steal and to destroy.

That is, is M all that is his agenda and everything he does is to the fulfillment of those things.

Amen. That's what he's come to do to steal to kill and to destroy and I want you to know that you might say well kill and destroy. If you're dead you can't be destroyed. Here's what you gotta understand the work, destroy their means to ruin to ruin CTL means what it means he would like to actually kill you. But if he can tell you if he can't take you out that he wants to ruin your life. He wants to ruin your life with bondage and lies and fear and torment. Amen. That's his nature, and as I've told you before the word Satan is the time in Hebrew. If we look at its roots.

Remembering the original Hebrew language was written in word pictures that later became letters and when we look at the three consonants in the word Satan because they did not write valves in ancient Hebrew, so we would spell it STN. So when we look at the Hebrew S its shin. It's a picture of teeth or fire. Either way, it means to devour.

When we look at the word T its text in Hebrew and it's a picture of a snake and it means a snake and when we look at the word and its none in Hebrew. It's a picture of a fish swimming in water, not just a fish but swimming in the water and it means life, but the three together.

Satan is a snake that comes to devour life that is the hidden layer in the name of Satan in the Hebrew amen and so he comes often in whispers, and I correlate Satan's whispers to what I call white noise. Now our ears are bombarded all day long. Everywhere we go with sound everywhere. Sound sound sound if it's not the TV it's the radio. If it's not that it's machines that are running.

If it's not that it's traffic you can hear in your home as well as if you're in your car, it's kids making noise everywhere we go. It noise and I dare say that a majority of people have the habit of having their TV on even when they're not watching it.

It's in the background. They can be doing something completely different, but they put the TV on Internet and pay attention to it, but it's on and their accustomed noise at all times.

Amen. And so we are bombarded with all of this noise but I tell you if that night when everyone is asleep and you turn off the TV don't go to bed with the TV on and you turn off the radio or whatever else and completely silent. And you happen to live on the street where there's not traffic out there and everything is completely silent and you're laying there I tell you, you will hear a low level of very low level of some kind of buzz in your ear how many I've ever done that and you know what I'm talking about because were so used to the sounds were so used to be bombarded with it that way were totally completely quiet and hopefully if you're married, your mate doesn't snore.

If your mate snores you won't hear the white buzz. The little white noise. Amen.

You will hear that it is like the snow level of noise paints that noise that sound is not coming from external stimuli from external noises that sound is coming from inside your own head, how many know what I'm talking about. It's not outside. There's not something on in your home or in your bedroom that's making this noise it's coming from inside your own head, and you see this is how the serpent whispers to your mind.

Now that is a physical illustration that I gave you but can we connected and going the spirit and see that that's how Satan whispers to your mind, and he knows when to whisper for you to hear him and that's why we got to learn the ground out the whispers with the word of God. We got to cast them down with God's word and for me it means sometimes. I've gotten completely go to speaking out loud at that answer out loud I might in my mind.

Think of a verse of the song or something. But you know what I find out when I start singing I don't hear those whispers anymore. When I start quoting the word of God.

I don't hear them anymore because I'm resisting the devil and he has to flee from me. Amen. And I have learned not to wait a while back before I learned all this, I would wait a while and the thoughts kept coming and I would just wait a while and before I would finally as I was under spirit of fear to appoint but I have learned that I don't wait until he tells me 2345 things as soon as I hear the case.

As soon as I hear it in my spiritual ears are sensitized and know that is not the voice of my shepherd that is not the voice of my beloved. That's not the voice of my Holy Spirit and began to speak against it, I rebuke it, I block it before he can be, firing from my mind my heart my spirit, amen. That's what you have to do you gotta take Scripture and counteracted at the very first whisper so many times when I pray for people they'll say Sr. Sharon, the devil told me, and I mean they got this long drawn out story about what the devil don't and after a while I have to stumble because they're going to affect my ability to pray for them.

You know, tell me get me to just give me the just don't tell me everything he said amen why are you repeating it. I know you're trying to explain to me but I don't need to hear you give me that whole big long thing I need you to just tell me the main points because I'm getting ready to rebuke the devil. I'm getting my command in the back off you name you know and I don't need to hear whatever he said because what I mean me that it's a lot you let someone beat you up with it. I'm not you I'm telling you what I know because I know what he did to me and I know God gave me the victory and he's not a respecter of persons, you give it to you.

So when it's just the notion of suggested that you know is wrong. You know that it's untrue. You cannot let nothing develop. I might go one further, let's suppose it's not a whisper that suppose the devil stumbled enough to send somebody to you and tell you something about someone or something that immediately your spirit says that's not right that's not true. I don't believe that you need to tell that person right then you need to say what you know what, I don't think that's right.

I don't believe that doesn't witness with my spirit and I don't believe it. And you better be careful what you're saying about that person. Because if it's a lie you may be touching God's anointed. Now if the person they're speaking on is a godly person league person, then they need to be careful.

If it's a hypocrite. Never buy another hypocrite. You knows you just say well you know the Bible says, you know, by their fruits. So let's pray about them. But when you speak against someone that is a godly person that you have never had any reason to think anything about them than you need to be careful because it's probably the slanderer and if it's not, it's true, it will come out now. They'll either get right with God to get right with God. And that's the good thing if they don't get right with God and persisting whatever this thing is way based on your sin will find you, you know, it reminds me of when they'd already beaten Peter and John Roman prison. Amen. And they want to keep doing things to them. That's how they work and then finally the male yelled dude up and said you know if this thing is not of God. It's gonna all fall apart, just like he named other things but he said if it be of God, you may find yourself fighting against God, for he wasn't sure he didn't know when he was afraid that just in case they were all they would be fighting against God. So we need to proclaim God's word over our mind and here's the thing. You may have to repeat it and repeated and repeated. You may have to repeat it, but you keep doing it until you've drowned out that whisper and you will eventually you will but John don't let the whispers accumulate because then they can become a stronghold. Let's go back to second Corinthians.

In this time is look at chapter 10. Looking at verse four and five for the weapons of our warfare are not carnal or they're not of the flesh, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds, casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ. Now here is what the Lord moved all my heart for myself and it's helped me and I will share it with you because I think it will help you.

I like to reverse the order. Another words I start with bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ, because you will capture something when it's a thought.

When you think if you will catch it when it they thought, and cast it down and bring it into the obedience of Christ may line up with the word of God. If it doesn't line up with the word of God.

They you cast it down if you do it when it's just a thought.

It will not become an imagination and that's a stronger because now it is become this thing of reasoning in your mind that now is actually hostile and fights against God and the knowledge of God. It's going up a step and if you continue to have those imaginations then they will begin to be one on upon another, upon another and then it becomes a stronghold and a stronghold is like a four that is surrounded with walls so the enemy cannot get in.

But in this sense, it's your mind and your mind now has these walls and the truth cannot get in.

The enemy has built up walls around your mind.

He's so filled you with these thoughts in these imaginations and imagination means fallacious reasoning, fallacious reasoning, all you reason this to be true, it's not. It's false, but you do so, that allows you then to reason this and reason that and reason. The other till it's built up this big thing. And Satan has successfully put this wall around your mind until it's hard for truth to get in then what you gotta do you gotta pull it down.

It's a lot easier to take one thought captive then to pull down the walls of a stronghold. I'm not saying it's not possible.

Obviously it is but it's harder and you will suffer much in the process. Amen. So that's how the Lord dealt with me and it really helped me. Hopefully will you so we have been talking about. Don't listen to the whisperer learn how to resist him and rebuke him now. I might step on more toes about this time because I'm going to say not only don't listen to the whisperer. Don't become a whisperer. As you know there are whispers in the church I'm going to prove to you.

Let's look to Romans 129 now in Romans one we have a whole catalog of deadly sins, but we are zoning in on our subject, so let's look at verse 29 being filled with all unrighteousness. Now that's a very key description being felt with all unrighteousness, and here is the symptoms the outgrowth the fruit fornication, wickedness, consciousness, maliciousness full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, Melinda T. Whisperer's whisperer errors. Now, several of the traits that we just read.

Here are synonymous with words we've already looked at in connection with the serpent, Satan, for instance, malicious, and then envious and the murderers. These are all Satan's nature deceitful malignity. Here is the same word his craftiness that we read in the other verses.

It's the same word, but the last one is one of Satan's titles. The whisperer, so let's look at the Greek word for whisperer whisperings and whisper what is the Greek word, I'm not going to say because it's a little tough.

Not that you really care. But here's the meeting this you do care about a secret slanderer because the devil is a coward and he's like a snake in the grass.

He does all his things, he tries to do secretly incognito, so you don't realize it's the devil. Amen slanderer to speak false charges which defame and damage another's reputation to assassinate their character. That's what Satan does revelations 1210 names him wanted this titles the accuser of the brethren.

Amen. Accused means to charge someone with an offense to claim they have committed something wrong or bad and this is what Satan's MO is he's always slandering someone slanderer is a direct connection to Satan and I hate to say this to you but he's not some saints in the church.

He can use to do his dirty work. I'm not saying just Faith Tabernacle on say in the church. Amen.

The body of Christ. You know the Bible tells us in second Corinthians chapter 2 that there are vessels of honor and there are vessels of dishonor and the enemy knows who we can use that he can whisper to then accuse godly people to them and get them to do his work of starting to slander them.

Amen. Back in the second Corinthians chapter 12 and looking at verse 24. I fear less when I come, I shall not find you such as I would and that I shall be found under you, such as you would not.

But here's the point. Last one I calm there be debates and billions rafts, stripes, backbiting, whisperings, swellings and tumults.

So here we have that word again I fear less when I calm. This is what I'm going to find I'm afraid when I come to see you again. Karen and I want you to know that this would be his third trip there. He's already been there twice he's saying I'm afraid even though I've been there two times already. I'm afraid when I come back. This is what I'm gonna find debates and endings wrap drives the backbiting swellings into mold. There was a lot of bad stuff going on in the surgical team and all the more remarkable when you they are the ones to whom he wrote all about what he also wrote to them. The chapter on love. Amen. What a bondage breaking word of the Lord the whisperer. One of Satan's most dangerous and effective tactics is not just a lie against God, but to subtly whisper his accusations, like the hiss of the deadly serpent.

He is called the serpent and the accuser of the brethren. He could also be called the whisperer. Paul wrote to the church of Corinth.

I fear less by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his ductility so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ, there are five significant Greek words in this verse that tell the story of Satan the whisperer and revealed how he whispers thoughts to the mind that accuse God and godly members of the body of Christ. If they are not taken captive when just a thought, a notion or suggestion they can become mental strongholds of deception. Whisperers, can tear up a church with jealousy, slander, suspicion, and lies maligning leadership and wounding members learn how to discern the whispers of the enemy and take captive every thought. Make sure not to allow the hedge of protection around your life to be broken down because proverb says where the hedge is broken.
