Isaiah 6:1-7 “In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord, high and exalted, seated on a throne; and the train of his robe filled the temple. Above him were seraphim, each with six wings: With two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they were flying. And they were calling to one another: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory.” At the sound of their voices the doorposts and thresholds shook and the temple was filled with smoke. “Woe to me!” I cried. “I am ruined! For I am a man of unclean lips, and I live among a people of unclean lips, and my eyes have seen the King, the Lord Almighty.” Then one of the seraphim flew to me with a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with tongs from the altar. With it he touched my mouth and said, “See, this has touched your lips; your guilt is taken away and your sin atoned for.”
Only when you enter into a place that is undefiled, that is pure, in which the air is clean, can you understand the power of an accusation lodged against another member of the body of Christ. Whether that person has a function like that of an apostle, prophet, pastor, teacher or evangelist or whether they are a mother, father, brother, or sister in the family of God. Accusations are unclean spirits that operate through pain that is unhealed in the lives of members of the body of Christ. This unhealed pain, produces a sound of accusation against another believer, because pain has to blame someone for the wound inflicted on them.
There have been many accusations flying around the body of Christ, whether on Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Snap Chat or in homes, coffee shops, and phones around this globe. No matter how the words are traveling, they are destructive in nature and unacceptable to God. Proverbs 6:16-19 says, “There are six things the Lord hates, seven that are detestable to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, a false witness who pours out lies and a person who stirs up conflict in the community.” The Bible says, God considers a person who stirs up conflict in the community an abomination. That community is not one local church, or one city, state or nation, that is the body of Christ. We are walking on very thin ice, when we speak accusations about another member of the body of Christ.
The enemy would love for us to self-destruct as the body of Christ, but Jesus, the head of this body, gives us two commands, Love the Lord Your God and Love Your Neighbor as Yourself. If you do not have access to the person of whom negative press is being given about, then it is best to shut it down upon arrival, for the war we are in has been long and many in the body are battle weary. They don’t need attacks from within, when they are dealing with so many attacks from without. It’s time we stand together, even when we don’t agree, we are called to stand and keep on standing together to advance the kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven. We are on the verge of something significant, so hold your tongue, guard your eyes and your ears against any accusations and let’s pray for the manifestation of the glory of God on earth. We need a breakthrough.
