The Churches Narcissist Indeed, narcissist finds themselves challenged by the authority of Christ. The darkness hates the light because it shows the true nature of oneself, and it becomes a delusional self-assault, yet blames God’s people.
Even still, God’s people are not intimidated but patient during the assaults. Narcissists indeed have a grand perception of themselves yet inward a low degree of self-worth because of the entity that functions within them. Demonic oppression confuses and warps the mind, followed by the delusion that a person walking in the Spirit of God is competition. When, in reality, there is no rival, it’s demonic deception. A narcissist will always be attracted to the power and revelation of Christ to become later challenged by it. They wait in secret and watch every move of the anointed, waiting for them to slip up, and when they don’t, the narcissist will create lies and smear campaigns to justify their behavior. A good rule of thumb is if a person comes out of the blue and begins telling stories about a person with no proof or solid foundation, even if they come in pairs, there is your problem; God’s people don’t do such a thing.
The Bible says to expose evil, and when we do, there is proof; indeed, blocking people from social media is not evil. Often it’s wisdom or personal boundaries to protect ourselves and our ministries. Also, if someone gives to a church, a thank you is in order. The church is not obligated to announce it or send cards or letters by mail; a simple thank you is good enough for the humble-hearted. Frequently after a block, the behaviors we saw before the block become brutally obvious when the hate mail comes in the name of love and the slandering between people pretending they don’t know what they did.
In the Bible, Jezebel and Ahab are often referenced as examples of people who were prideful and arrogant. Jezebel is known for her idol worship, manipulation, and murder of prophets. Ahab, her husband, was a king who allowed Jezebel’s actions to go unchecked.
In 1 Kings 21, Jezebel plots to have Naboth killed so that her husband can take possession of his vineyard. In 1 Kings 18, she orders the killing of many prophets of God. Ahab is also criticized for his disregard of God’s commandments, as seen in 1 King 16:30-33.
These characters exemplify the dangers of putting one’s own desires and ambitions above the will of God. While not explicitly called narcissistic, their actions show a lack of empathy and concern for others, a desire for power and control, and a willingness to do whatever it takes to achieve their goals.
Today isn’t any different and the church’s narcissist doesn’t know how to let things go trapped in their obsession for weeks, months, and years. We especially see them strewn about on social media out to prove themselves leaders, but fall short with pride and little to no wisdom.
The best thing to do when dealing with individuals that are walking with this type of spiritual oppression it’s cut ties completely. A narcissist (Jezebel) will cry wolf. They are claiming this false soft, loving, and meek character when the godly demeanor is that of their target. A narcissist (Jezebel) has no empathy but longs for it, so they pretend to be the same people they covertly attack before others in secret.
In closing, be sure to keep praying for your enemies and allow the Lord’s protection to cover you with the blood of Christ. Father says, Be sure to protect yourself and your family, ministry, and home. Indeed a narcissist doesn’t take well when you take the initiative and remove access to yourself, so spiritual warfare is a must. After all, the entity in these people is out for the kill; destroy the enemy’s tactics with sincere love and pray for those held captive by that evil thing called Jezebel.
The phrase “God will not be mocked” means that God is aware of everything that people do, including their actions and intentions, and that they will ultimately be held accountable for their behavior. This is based on the Biblical passage from Galatians 6:7, which states, “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.”
Essentially, this means that people cannot escape the consequences of their actions, even if they think they can hide their behavior from others. Therefore, it is essential to be mindful of our thoughts and actions, as we will ultimately be held accountable for them.
