What Is It?
Religion will open the doors, smile, and invite you in. But beneath the skirts of #religion, there is a hidden paparazzi called "the spirit of legalism" dressed in the attires and mindset of the Pharisee and Scribes.
You will recognize when this spirit is in full operation within a church or a person's life because every time the Spirit of the LORD speaks or is moving in their midst, they will either reject, dismiss, and/or attempt to hinder the move of GOD's Spirit in you and through you.
A religious spirit is #proud and #unteachable; often #critical and very #haughty. It also moves in the undercurrents of #rage and #anger. Remember, the spirit of #Jezebel is always trying to kill the #prophet.
You will know by the Spirit of GOD when you are dealing with a religious mindset or a religious people because, they too, will also recognize you. ~2014 Narda Goodson
Scriptures to Meditate on:
Matthew 8:29 - And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to #torment us before the time?
