Demons Thrash When They are Exposed – And so do Abusers

A Cry For Justice

And when Jesus saw that a crowd came running together, he rebuked the unclean spirit, saying to it, “You mute and deaf spirit, I command you, come out of him and never enter him again.” And after crying out and convulsing him terribly, it came out, and the boy was like a corpse, so that most of them said, “He is dead.” (Mark 9:25-26)

Just as darkness hates light, so the devil despises and even fears exposure. Truth exposes his lies and strips away his disguise. You see it here. Jesus calls the evil spirit out, exposes him, expels him, and forbids him to return. The result? The demon cries out, convulses the victim “terribly” and leaves.

Now, I do not know if I have ever really dealt with someone who has such a demon, but I can tell you that I have seen this “thrashing” business in wicked people…

Book Review: Can you hear me now?

reviewsbybrandy

Can you hear me now by Annie O’Sullivan
ISBN 978-1-926760-70-4

This story is both heartbreaking and gut renching as it is horrific. Annie walks us threw her life as a happy go lucky child of 5 to a adult still terrified of her weakened and friel father. Annie was the oldest of 5 children, the only daughter, her mother was a stay at home mom and her father was a war vet by his only account. Annie gives us a first person account the physical abuse that not only she recived but her bothers as well. She even states at one point in the book that she bitterly thanked “God” that it was her brothers beaten at times and not her. She gives us insite to her relationship with her father as he passes her around to his friends, and boys in her brothers class. This humility was not limited…

Count on it — Abusers Will Always Violate a Boundary

A Cry For Justice

Abusers will ALWAYS chafe at boundaries. They may abide by those limits for a time, but only because they have no choice. And the first time they see some kind of opening that, in their thinking, justifies them crossing the line, off they go.

Here is a narrative from the Old Testament which illustrates this. The story is about how King Solomon set boundaries on Shimei. Shimei was a man from the house of Saul who had repeatedly cursed (verbally abused) and thrown stones at King David when David was fleeing Jerusalem after Absalom’s mutiny (2 Samuel 16:5-8).

We’ll pick up the story from where Solomon, David’s son, has been made king. Solomon knew how Shimei had cursed and abused King David, and he set very clear boundaries on Shimei’s conduct. The boundaries Solomon set were merciful and generous: they would have allowed Shimei to live and prosper, so long as he kept within the…

Ephesians 5:11 and Exposing Evil — A Real Case

A Cry For Justice

Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them. For it is shameful even to speak of the things that they do in secret. But when anything is exposed by the light, it becomes visible  (Eph 5:11-13)

Jesus exposed evil. The Light of the World does that. His people are the light of the world and we are to do the same evil-exposing that He did. His Word shows us the pattern:

Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you clean the outside of the cup and the plate, but inside they are full of greed and self-indulgence. (Matthew 23:25)

Alexander the coppersmith did me great harm; the Lord will repay him according to his deeds. Beware of him yourself, for he strongly opposed our message. (2 Timothy 4:14-15)

I have written something to the church, but Diotrephes, who likes to put himself first, does…

FAQ Highlight — If I tell people about my husband’s abusive behavior, am I gossiping?

A Cry For Justice

unknown

“When a victim starts disclosing what the abuser has been doing and asks for help, abusers and their allies commonly accuse the victim of gossiping. Abusers want their evil to remain in the darkness. Evil loves darkness. The gossip charge is made to support the cloak of secrecy and to shut victims up. If you expose the evil, you are charged with gossip and with lying.” [Barbara Roberts, from the post The false accusation of gossip ]
