JEALOUSY – Notes

Exodus 34:14 “For you shall worship no other god; for the Lord, Whose name is Jealous, is a jealous (impassioned) God,”

Jealousy has been the cause of many broken relationships, broken dreams, and spiritual abortions.

Jealousy will attempt to remove you from the position and call of God on your life. It will bring total confusion in your relationships and birth disappointment and betrayal in your spirit. It will attempt to chase you into hiding and isolation and brokenness.

Jealousy is a powerful destructive force based in selfishness, fear, ambition and a lack of love for others.

What does the Bible say about jealousy?

Pro 27:4  “Wrath is cruel and anger is an overwhelming flood, but who is able to stand before jealousy?

PROGRESSION OF JEALOUSY

○ LYING SPIRIT
James 3:14 “But if you have bitter jealousy (envy) and contention (rivalry, selfish ambition) in your hearts, do not pride yourselves on it and thus be in defiance of and false to the Truth.”

○ SLANDER
1 Timothy 6:4 “He is puffed up with pride and stupefied with conceit, [although he is] woefully ignorant. He has a morbid fondness for controversy and disputes and strife about words, which result in envy and jealousy, quarrels and dissension, abuse and insults and slander, and base suspicions.

○ ABUSE
Acts 13:44-45 “The next Sabbath almost the entire city gathered together to hear the Word of God. But when the Jews saw the crowds, filled with envy and jealousy they contradicted what was said by Paul and talked abusively [reviling and slandering him.”

○ GATHER A MOB TO AGREE WITH THE CASE AGAINST THE PERSON
Acts 17:5 “But the Jews were jealous, and taking some wicked men of the rabble, they formed a mob, set the city in an uproar, and attacked the house of Jason, seeking to bring them out to the crowd.” (Paul & Silas)

We always believe the majority is right. It is not the case in the Kingdom of God.

○ ANGER, HATE & MURDER
James 4:2 “You are jealous and covet and your desires go unfulfilled; [so] you become murderers. You burn with envy and anger and are not able to obtain [the gratification, the contentment, and the happiness that you seek], so you fight and war. You do not have, because you do not ask.”
Acts 5:17 “But the high priest rose up and all who were his supporters, that is, the party of the Sadducees, and being filled with jealousy and indignation and rage,

JOSEPH
Genesis 37:11 “Joseph’s brothers envied him and were jealous of him, but his father observed the saying and pondered over it.

Genesis 37:18 “And when they saw him far off, even before he came near to them, they conspired to kill him.

JEALOUSY DIRECTED TOWARD YOU

CONFUSION

Jas 3:16  “For wherever there is jealousy (envy) and contention (rivalry and selfish ambition), there will also be confusion (unrest, disharmony, rebellion) and all sorts of evil and vile practices.”

BROKEN RELATIONSHIPS
– Separation – e.g. Joseph
– Rejection
– Abandonment
– Betrayal

DISAPPOINTMENT
– In relationships
– In God
– In your calling and gifting

SHAME
– Hide from people because you have no answers
– Humiliated

HOW DO YOU DEAL WITH JEALOUSY IN YOUR LIFE?

1 Corinthians 3:3 “for you are still of the flesh. For while there is jealousy and strife among you, are you not of the flesh and behaving only in a human way?”

REMEMBER:

  • The enemy will first of all make you believe that the other person received something that should have been yours
  • And he will make you believe that God cannot give you the same.

James 4:2 “You are jealous and covet and your desires go unfulfilled; [so] you become murderers. You burn with envy and anger and are not able to obtain [the gratification, the contentment, and the happiness that you seek], so you fight and war. You do not have, because you do not ask.”

WHEN YOU ARE JEALOUS

  • Your desires go unfulfilled
  • You cannot obtain the gratification, contentment and happiness that you seek

KRIS VALLOTON
said that the gift of discernment is not only to discern the spirits, but it is to discern God’s favor and ANOINTING on a person so that we would know how to treat that person correctly.

So, WHAT TO WE DO?

If we discern God’s call and anointing on a person, we should:

  • Rejoice with that person for the open doors, the favor and anointing on that person
  • Support that person in any way you can
  • Pray for that person that God’s assignment and mandate will be fulfilled

Declare:

  • Your gratefulness and contentment with what God has in store for you
    No eye has seen, no ear has heard and no mind can perceive what God has prepared for those who love Him?

The Lord says “YOU DO NOT HAVE BECAUSE YOU DO NOT ASK

Jy, die Tempel van God

JOU LIGGAAM IS ‘N TEMPEL VAN GOD

1 Kor 6:19 Of besef julle nie dat julle liggaam ‘n tempel van die Heilige Gees is nie? Julle het die Heilige Gees, wat in julle woon, van God ontvang, en julle behoort nie aan julleself nie: 20 julle is gekoop, en die prys is betaal. Julle moet God dus in julle liggaam verheerlik

GOD IS LIG

  1. GOD IS DIE VADER VAN LIG

Jakobus 1:17 Elke goeie gawe en elke volmaakte geskenk kom van Bo. Dit kom van die Vader wat die hemelligte geskep het, maar wat self nie soos hulle verander of verduister nie.

Every good gift and every perfect ( free, large, full) gift is from above; it comes down from the Father of all [that gives] light, in [the shining of] Whom there can be no variation [rising or setting] or shadow cast by His turning [as in an eclipse].

KISS THE SON

PSALM 2:12 “KISS THE SON”

I pursued intimacy with the Lord and I had such a great desire to grow in intimacy  with Him.

When I read this Scripture I asked the Lord how I can kiss Him?  I waited for months when the Lord woke me up one morning with the question ‘So, you want to kiss Me?”  I was immediately awake and with great expectation i answered ‘I would love to, Lord!”.

He asked me ‘What do you do when you kiss someone?’ I heard myself answer ‘I put my lips to his hand, or to his cheek or to his lips’.  The Lord then said to me ‘In other words, when you kiss someone, that person is on your lips?’

Excitement exploded in me when revelation flooded my spirit!

I immediately understood that JESUS IS THE WORD.  When His Word is on my lips, I kiss Him!

That is why I love preaching!  I do not minister to people, in fact, I am ‘kissing’ Jesus, loving Him and ministering to Him!

The more you have the Word (Jesus) on your lips, the more you will grow in revelation and intimacy with Him … if that is your desire and pursuit, of course!

What to do with your Prophetic Word

  1. When asked WHO we are we usually answer by saying what we do
    1. If you start with your function you will always be in performs and you will give birth to Ishmaels
  1. PROPHETIC WORD
  • Speaks of WHO GOD IS and
  • WHO YOU ARE
  • God wants to form you according to your heavenly identity
  • Do not allow your past to be the prophet of your future
  • The biggest truth is Who God says you are

LOVE

Love is not an emotion, it is God Himself.  We have diminished God to mere emotions that we can control and that is why we so easily ‘fall in or out of love’.

1 John 4:8 “God is Love”.

Love requires a beloved.  It cannot function without a beloved.  God made you and me to be the object of His love!  Without you, His beloved, He hurts!  Therefor, when the enemy can make you believe that God doesn’t love you and you turn away from Him, the satan manages to hurt God!

Nothing can separate you from His love because his love is not an emotion, it is God Himself.  He already paid for your through Jesus Who died on the cross for you.  So, you belong to Love forever and nothing can separate you from Him

You don’t have the ability to love.  Ask Him to fill you with His love, with Himself and allow Him to love through you and you will experience the power and fulfilment of LOVE!
