#420 - God's plan for Voices Demons spelled out in Bible

God's plan for the Voices Demons, who continuously stir up strife among humans, encourage them to commit sin, and antagonize people on a daily basis, is pretty clearly stated in various parts of the Bible.

The most notable record of the Voices Demons' handiwork in the aforestated regard is documented in The Sunnyvale Knock (2006) web site [see The web site that launched the demonic war]; however, there are even more examples, and the results of their work can be seen or heard in a few posts on this blog such as these:
Another perfect example is from two nights ago, in which an unexpected guest, accompanying someone who was invited to my home, attempted to cause discord and strife among neighbors and other residents of my home by practically yelling a non-stop diatribe about his sexual exploits. Following is about 9 minutes of his hours-long attempt to please the Voices Demons, who instructed him on how to ruin my evening:
NOTE | Another—and more clear—example of demon collaborators talking just to annoy or frighten can be heard in SECRET VIDEO | Fake fighting, barking police arrest and "drug bust" commands by humans collaborating with demon stress-inducing aims.
After hearing this and reading the aforementioned posts, most would agree that God's plan is more than fitting for demons and people that have based their entire existences on talebearing, whispering, evil surmising, and cursing.

In an online article on Let God Be True!, the difference between the works (or fruits) of Voices Demons and those with love in their hearts is spelled out very clearly, particularly in this excerpt:
Love hears rumors, or even factual news of others' sins, but never repeats them; hatred craves private information and spreads it to any listeners.
It is by this very means that the Voices Demons gain persons' acquiescence and participation in such illegal activities as those described in the links above; and, insodoing, they cause others to sin, as well.

The article also describes the fate of such demons—and those who collaborate with them—that justify their behavior in this way:
Hatred of sin is holy and good (Pr 6:16-19; Ps 45:7). But hatred of others, shown by anger at personal offences, ignoring repentance, whispering about sins, and talebearing is murder in God's judgment (Matt 5:21-26). It proves a person to be without eternal life and living for the devil with a spirit from hell (John 8:44; James 3:14-16; I John 3:15).
Following is the entire article, which clarifies for those afflicted by such demons what love looks like, and what hate looks like:

Proverbs 10:12

Hatred stirreth up strifes: but love covereth all sins.

Where there is strife, there is hatred. Conflict cannot exist without hatred. And unless love prevails, the strife will get worse. Love does not fight - it covers offences and sins. It seeks peace and pursues it. It cannot tolerate strife; it tries to end it as soon as possible.

Strife, a word we do not use much today, means antagonism, enmity, discord, contention, or dispute. It is fighting and conflict. While it is godly to strive for truth against sin and error, here we have personal strife caused by the hatred of those who do not practice love.

Where there is envy, strife, enmity, conflict, or tension, all you need do is look a little deeper to find one or both parties guilty of hatred. Fighting and antagonism do not and cannot exist where each person is practicing Christian charity, or love.

But there are wicked persons, with hearts full of malice and hatred, which we all were by nature (Tit 3:3), who delight in stirring up contentions and quarrels by talebearing, whispering, evil surmising, and cursing. These profane persons have no conscience or compassion, as Ham and Shimei; and they shall receive a similar fate from the holy and just God and noble men (Gen 9:20-27II Sam 16:5-14I Kgs 2:8-9Is 29:20-21).

Charity forgives sins and forgets sins, just as the Lord forgives and forgets them. Love hides and conceals sins under the same forgiving cover that Christ provides every saint. This is covering sin, and it is a rule of life for saints of the most High (Pr 17:9Jas 5:20I Pet 4:8). But hatred, growing from anger and pride, loves to dig up evil, spread evil reports, and create strife and trouble (Pr 15:1816:27-2826:2128:2529:22Jas 4:1).

Can we cover sins like Joseph, whose brothers could not believe his forgiveness, even after many gifts, favors, and passage of much time (Gen 45:1-1550:15-21)? Lord, help us. He put the very best perspective on their horrible sin and wept over all of them. How did the Lord reward this one son of Jacob? He gave him two tribes in Israel (Josh 14:4)!

Here is a golden opportunity for child training for dedicated Christian parents. Children must be trained and corrected strictly in this matter of hatred and love, strife and peace, covering sins or spreading them. The natural antagonism and competitiveness of children creates a perfect setting for teaching love, graciousness, forgiveness, and peacemaking.

Love has many facets (I Cor 13:4-7), but our proverb emphasizes one of them - covering sins. Love overlooks offences against it; hatred gets offended, holds bitterness, or plots revenge. Love forgets and hides the sins of the repentant; hatred remembers them or spreads them to others. Love hears rumors, or even factual news of others' sins, but never repeats them; hatred craves private information and spreads it to any listeners.

Can we cover all sins, as the Preacher taught here? Peter once sought a limit of seven times for covering sins, but our blessed Lord pressed him to seventy times seven (Matt 18:21-22)! How can we stir up trouble over a few pence, when our Lord has forgiven us ten thousand talents (Matt 18:23-35)! These things should never occur among those who name the name of Christ, and the judgment of the wicked servant is just and appropriate.

Covering sins is not compromise. It is not withholding Scriptural judgment, whether in the family, church, business, or nation. The rightful authority should speedily execute judgment, where God has ordained it. But covering sins should occur when the offences are against you, where there is repentance, or you are not in direct authority.

Hatred of sin is holy and good (Pr 6:16-19Ps 45:7). But hatred of others, shown by anger at personal offences, ignoring repentance, whispering about sins, and talebearing is murder in God's judgment (Matt 5:21-26). It proves a person to be without eternal life and living for the devil with a spirit from hell (John 8:44James 3:14-16I John 3:15).

What if a person says, "Oh, how I love Jesus," but they stir up trouble, do not forgive personal offences, ignore repentance, and reveal sins to others? They are lying hypocrites, for the Bible says they are murdering descendants of Cain (I John 3:10-15).

Dear reader, let us take on the character of our Lord Jesus, who came into the world to save sinners. He has no use for the self-loving "righteous," for He knows the blackness of their hearts. Let us choose to forgive and cover sins in love, so that we might easily and honestly pray, "Forgive us our sins, as we forgive those who sin against us."

Our lesson here is the basis for true peace - love. Where there is strife, contention, and tension, there is hatred lurking behind the false handshakes and lying words of murderers. It is our wisdom to live this lesson ourselves, avoid those wicked persons, and train such evil out of our children. Let us be the greatest peacemakers in the world by practicing the wisdom of this proverb. May the Lord Jesus grant us the grace and wisdom for the task.

Our lesson here is also the great gulf between the wise and foolish, between the righteous and wicked, between the sons of God and the sons of Belial. When Jesus met repentant sinners, He freely forgave them; when Pharisees see sinners, they despise them and hate God's full forgiveness (Luke 7:36-5015:25-32). But wicked persons shall have their day, as did the Jews. As the forgiving Lord did not forgive the Jews but miserably destroyed them, so shall these hateful, strife-causing murderers be burned up (Rev 21:8).

Here's Joyce Meyer's take on what God says about the power of words (watch the free podcast):
Satan uses peoples' mouths to bring pain and hurt; but, God wants to use it to bring joy and peace. You can build up with your mouth; and, you can tear down [with it]. You can edify and exhort; or, you can just totally deflate somebody. We can cause people to succeed by what we say to them; or, we can cause them to fail by what we say to them. What a responsibility we have! 
If you want to enjoy your life, keep your tongue from evil. What are some of the things that would be considered evil? Gossip. Criticism. Isn't it amazing how fast bad news travels? It's amazing that someone can do something bad, and within 24 hours, everybody knows it. I wonder what would happen if good news spread like that? Because there are good things going on; but, for some reason, the human flesh, apart from being controlled by God, is not as interested in telling good things as it is bad things.
Here's what the Book of James has to say about the tongue:
When we put bits into the mouths of horses to make them obey us, we can turn the whole animal. Or take ships as an example. Although they are so large and are driven by strong winds, they are steered by a very small rudder wherever the pilot wants to go. Likewise, the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts. Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark. The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole body, sets the whole course of one’s life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell.
All kinds of animals, birds, reptiles and sea creatures are being tamed and have been tamed by mankind, but no human being can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison.
With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse human beings, who have been made in God’s likeness. Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this should not be. Can both fresh water and salt water flow from the same spring? My brothers and sisters, can a fig tree bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Neither can a salt spring produce fresh water.
Here's another article from from Let God Be True!, which describes the qualities one takes on as a liar, and the power of a lie to destroy the liar's world and the world of people who perpetuate lies:

Proverbs 25:18

A man that beareth false witness against his neighbour is a maul, and a sword, and a sharp arrow.

Do you smash, slash, or pierce others? Do you crush them? Cut and wound them? Pierce them deeply? If you ever exaggerate, lie, or remain silent to put a person in a bad light, you are guilty. You are like a maul – a large and heavy hammer. You are like a sword. You are like a sharp arrow. You hurt others painfully. Destroy these weapons today!

Similes and metaphors are figures of speech that make a comparison between things to explain or illustrate one of them. A simile admits the comparison by using comparative words such as “like” or “as.” A metaphor assumes the comparison without identifying it. This proverb is a metaphor. If it were a simile, it would read, “A man that beareth false witness against his neighbor is LIKE a maul, and a sword, and a sharp arrow.”

Noble and righteous men always tell the truth, especially when a reputation or life is at stake. When they are witnesses in any matter, they are careful to say all they should, as accurately as they can recall it. They do not remain silent, when their word would shed light on a situation. This matter is important enough to God that the ninth commandment reads, “Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour” (Ex 20:16).

This is no light matter. When God writes a nation’s laws, perjury in court will get you the same punishment as the crime being tried, even if it is death (Deut 19:16-21). Such a wise law would help witnesses tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth! Memories would improve and consciences would be much more active. God hates all lying, but especially when another party is at risk (6:16-19; 19:5,9; Ex 23:1-9; Lev 5:1; 19:11-18).

You can smash a person’s hopes, reputation, or life, if you testify falsely against him or do not tell the whole truth. You can cut him deeply, as with a sword, if you fail to deliver him from trouble, when you know the truth about a matter. And you can fatally wound him from a distance, if you were a witness to some event, but you withhold the truth from those adjudicating the crime. A false witness is a hateful and terrible enemy to men.

You would never lie in court? Good. Would you tell the whole truth, nothing but the truth, without exaggeration or bias, about everything you know? Good. Remember that stretching the facts or remaining silent when you know more is also being a false witness.

What is your reputation? Is it always and only to tell the truth about others? Are you known for never backbiting, never slandering, never talebearing, and never whispering? Do you always put the actions of others in the best light possible? If not, start today!
