The Spirit of Accusation - A Fourth Watch Post

In Jerusalem there were those who stood upon the walls of the city to watch to see what was coming. They were the eyes and ears of the city when there was darkness. There were segments with the 4th watch being three hours before the dawn. Prophetically, those who took the 4th watch were preparers for the coming dawn for the city.

In this day and age, the Lord is asking prophets to prepare the body of Christ for the dawn of a new season by being the eyes and ears of the bride.  The body of Christ benefits from the gifting of the prophet/seer and we have a responsibility to hear their words and take them into account in our perceptions and decision making.

In my home church, and ministry network, we are blessed with several mature prophets who hear and see beyond the walls of our building and physical location. As an Apostolic ministry we partner with them and provide a platform for the voice of the Lord to go forth through them.

We will periodically be posting words from contributing authors who are trusted prophet/seers who have influence in and beyond our ministry. We will be sub-titling these posts as "A 4th Watch Post" to identify them clearly and will include a mini-bio of the authoring prophet/seer at the base of the post.

Following is the third post contributed as A 4th Watch Post. May it bring you life more abundantly to see beyond the walls!

In Him,



"Do not blame others for your circumstances, either specifically or as a people group."

I am impressed in my spirit that there is a spirit of accusation in our nation and in God's people. Do not be deceived my friends.  We are not to be a part of this deceptive spirit which comes to us as righteous judgement but in truth is a deception with the temptation toward self- righteousness and pride. Our judgement has been shaded by our culture’s lies and victim-hood teaching. Do not blame others for your circumstances, either specifically or as a people group. Stop participating in the accuser’s spirit and ways. The work of the deceiver to kill, steal and destroy God's work in our nation has been at work since our founding; teaching lies about our nation, our faith and God's design for our lives and attitudes toward one another.  Let God shine His light of truth into your heart. He is your deliverer and hope. (THE ACCUSER OF THE BRETHREN in Rev 12:7-12)".

It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. Gal. 5:1
We are in a time when people across the globe are declaring ‘Freedom!’ In this scripture the word ‘freedom’ comes from Greek origin meaning unrestrained, exempt from obligation, free born, as in a citizen not a slave. This scripture has offered truth and encouragement to Christians for almost 2000 years. The spiritual truth of freedom has inspired people to move into emotional freedom, governmental freedom, and financial freedom.  Once free we innately desire to see others free. This idea is instilled in the US Declaration of Independence and the constitution. It is infused in the hearts of many believers in America and other nations. 

In America we just celebrated the birthday of the USA, an annual tradition with flags and parades, yet there is an emerging cry for freedom in this nation. Here and in many other nations we have experienced an erosion of the idea. The world, especially the western world, has been going one direction for decades and very rapidly so for the past decade. There has been an increasing reliance on secular governmental oversight at the expense of freedom. The slow infringement on spiritual and cultural freedom has been like the frog in the pot, slow but deadly. Suddenly…aware of the hot water, the frog cries to get out.  

The most publicized yearnings for freedom come from nations with Christian roots that have become dormant, and subsequently, freedom has dwindled. But, I hear a sound from Britain, Poland, Austria, and Hungary; nations with old governmental structures. It is a sound of shaking and fracturing of oppressive structures and leadership. People in the western hemisphere are rising up against spiritual and governmental slavery that has slowly infringed upon the words we can speak, the way we can live, the Biblical declarations we can make, the health care we can choose, and the choice of people we receive into our respective nations. Now the freedom call is rising among the nations to say ‘no more’! They call out, ‘It is for freedom He has set us free!!'

I believe we are in a new dispensation, a time when the order of things is changing. The order of things is coming into alignment with heaven, a heavenly order. At the foundation of this change is the cry for freedom based in the freedom we have in Christ and the admonition not to be slaves. Unholy alliances, assumed to be insoluble, are dissolving. Religious structures created by man are cracking. It is happening as the church in its many expressions of faith in Christ, is rising up to declare freedom, demonstrating that freedom verbally and spiritually, and beginning to establish dominion by pushing off the yoke of slavery. 

May it be so Lord Jesus! Freedom!!!
