The enemy’s weapons: Imposing of guilt

Filed under: Spiritual Warfare School — kellporten @ 13:20

Imposing of guilt is one of the enemy’s strongest weapons, and it is a hallmark of the Jezebel spirit.

What does imposing of guilt mean?

Imposing of guilt involves putting blame on someone, i.e. to accuse. We may suffer when people impose guilt on us, but we can also impose guilt on ourselves.

When the imposing of guilt comes from others it can be in the forms of …

• Direct accusations. You may be accused for things that you have actually done wrong, and things that the person believes you have done wrong. Guilt may also be imposed, because you have not done what is expected of you.
• Silence. The person shows his displeasure with you by demonstrative silence.
• Crying. Of course people can cry because they are sad, but there is also weeping which aims to show how wrong you’ve been acting, and makes you feel guilty.
• Hints. The person may say e.g. “Don’t worry about me, I’ll make it by myself” The message of course is that you do not care.

When it comes to imposing guilt on ourselves, our feelings and thoughts are involved. We can feel ashamed for the faults we have done, but we can also blame ourselves for imaginary faults.

What is the source of the imposing of guilt?

There is a difference between convicting of sin and imposing guilt . The Holy Spirit convicts us of sin, and he does it in order for us to get things right. He says: “This is wrong. Come let’s sort it out!” The enemy, who imposes guilt, says:” Something is wrong. There is no solution for you!”

One of the devil’s names is The Accuser, and he really lives up to that name. His purpose for accusing us is, to get us into condemnation.

How should we deal with the enemy’s weapon, imposing of guilt?

When the Holy Spirit convicts you of sin you need to confess the sin. Then you will be forgiven and cleansed (1 John 1: 9). When the enemy imposes guilt, no matter if he uses a person, or if he sends a thought into your mind, you need to see who is behind and resist the attack.

Rom. 8:1
Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus

Rom. 8:33
Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies.
