The enemy’s weapons: Gossip

Filed under: Spiritual Warfare School — kellporten @ 18:55

We should see gossip as something that the enemy uses

When someone does something wrong, it is so easy for us to tell others about it. What is it that makes it so tempting to tell people? You might say it is human nature, but we need to understand that there can be demonic influence making us gossip. The enemy tempts us to gossip, and he has a purpose for doing so.

What does the bible say about gossiping?

The bible clearly says that gossiping is wrong.

Exo. 23:1
Do not spread false reports …

Prov. 10:18
Whoever conceals hatred with lying lips and spreads slander is a fool.

Prov. 16:28
… a gossip separates close friends.

What does the Holy Spirit want us to do when we see someone do wrong?

The Holy Spirit never leads us to gossip about the wrong things we see.

1 John 5:16
If you see any brother or sister commit a sin that does not lead to death, you should pray and God will give them life …

The Holy Spirit leads us to pray, not gossip, when we see something wrong.

Why does the enemy want us to gossip?

We cannot gossip and pray at the same time, so gossiping steals the time we could use to intercede. But there is yet another explanation why the enemy wants us to gossip. He wants us to speak bad about others, so he can use our words to release his evil power.

Prov. 18:21
The tongue has the power of life and death …

When we pray for a person who has done something wrong, we release God’s solutions for him, but when we gossip the enemy’s attack is being amplified.

How do we deal with the enemy’s attack gossip?

Refuse to gossip! Don’t allow gossip to come out of your mouth! Pray!
