You're Not to Blame (Does God hate me? Pt. 3)

Far too often we seem to blame God when something doesn't Go right. Other times we blame ourselves when things don't go right. After all, that's how sowing and reaping works, right? You had to do something wrong and that's why you're prayer wasn't answered, You didn't have enough faith, they didn't have enough faith, there was an open door, it wasn't God's will... the list goes on and on.


Typically, when a person doesn't feel like they're to blame for something going wrong they will find someone else to blame. This is most often done in an attempt to feel less guilt and responsibility and it is the beginning stage of finding the source of the original problem, but most people will simply stop at the finger pointing at a person or doctrinal flaw and not get to the real root of the issue at hand. If you have pointed your finger at someone else in blame for a problem in your life, then you have already failed and you are perpetuating the cycle of the enemy.

This is nothing new to humanity. This is what man has been doing since the fall from paradise. Adam did something wrong and pointed his finger at Eve, Eve then points her finger to the serpent, and God deals with the serpent. Unfortunately for Adam and Eve, there was no propitiation for their sins as of yet, (barring the fact that God most likely slew an animal to create fur clothing for Adam and Eve in order to "cover" their shame or nakedness that was caused as a result of sinning against God), but Adam and Eve did create the first principle of spiritual warfare and that is identifying that it is not the person that your battle is from, but it is the enemy that is the root of the problem. Eve Pointed Her finger at Satan (the serpent) as the root.

Paul identifies this same principle in Ephesians 6:12 by telling us straight forward, "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." Paul tells us that our battle is not the fault of the person that hurt you. Our battle is a spiritual battle. This is why if you are blaming a person or yourself for something going wrong in your life you are pointing your finger in the wrong direction. Your battle is against the spiritual forces.


God tells us that his plan is to build us up. He tells us in Jeremiah 29:11, "For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." He also tells us in Isaiah 54:15 that when the enemy assembles against you it is not because of God. God does not ever contradict himself. He set the whole universe into place with laws, both physical and spiritual, and those laws still stand to this day and he does not break those laws. Even Jesus came not to end the law, but to fulfill the law. He was sacrificed in accordance with what was required by the law in order to save us all.

If God is not the one that is devising evil plans to destroy you, and all your battles are spiritual battles, then it is safe to deduce that the Devil or as John puts it in Revelation, "The great dragon was hurled down--that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray..." That is the one that you need to be pointing your finger at.

All throughout the Bible, we see the same pattern that is identified in Genesis 3 being played out time and time again. The devil causes someone to sin, a tribe to sin, a city to sin, a nation to sin and then there is a consequence to that sin. What Holy Spirit showed me was the Devil and all his demons taking wood with the names of sins committed by people and heaping them into a pile in front of God. Each piece of wood is an accusation that the enemy then tries to use as a case for why God should allow him (Satan) to be able to attack that person.

The devil very cleverly hides this throughout the bible and without really digging into the word to get the truth you could miss it. In fact, most generations have missed it to date. Let's start with revealing who the destroyer is that is referred to as the destroyer 'HaMashit." in Exodus12:23.


Hamashit is not a name. The word Ha in Hebrew indicates that this is a title. Just as Satan is referred to as Ha-Satan, which means The Accuser, Ha mashit is a title meaning The Destroyer. Mashit is defined as meaning corrupt; spoiled and cast down one. So the title actually means The Spoiled One, The Destroyer, The Corrupt One, The Cast Down One.

We Learn from Isaiah 54 that God did create the destroyer, but he is corrupt and he is the enemy that works against God. Verse 54:15 informs that when the enemy gathers against you it is not God who made that happen, then in verse 16 he says that he made the blacksmith that fans the flames and creates the weapon that is used against you, and that he created the corrupt one to destroy, but then in the next verse he says " no weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and this is their vindication from me," declares the LORD." This shows us that since God is not attacking you or forming the weapons that are being used to attack you that these are enemies of God. The destroyer in this verse is referred to as Mashit again.

Since the purpose of this series is to take the blame off of God and put the blame on the enemy, then let's do that. Let's take a look at Exodus 12:23. " When the LORD goes through the land to strike down the Egyptians, he will see the blood on the top and sides of the door frame and will pass over that doorway, and he will not permit the destroyer to enter your houses and strike you down." This translation is missing the mark a little bit because one word is mistranslated. That word is the word Eth. Eth means a sign, a banner a signal. With that in mind you will see this verse in a different light. Verse 23 reads (literally) "For will come Yahweh to strike a sign against Mizraim, and when he sees the sign of the blood on the lintel Yahweh will pass over the door and will not allow The Corrupt One to come into your house to strike you."

What we are typically taught is that God and an angel are coming into Egypt to strike down the Egyptians and anyone without the sign of the blood on their door. The truth is God is coming against Egypt because they have rebelled against him, disobeyed his Prophet, and claimed that their gods are stronger than the God of Israel. God is in the midst of this great tragedy and he is directing the destroyer whom he is allowed to attack and whom he is not allowed to touch or even enter into their homes.

If you take notice, the people that are spared are the servants of the Lord, The Children of Israel. However, The Corrupt one is able to attack the people that have rebelled against God. The whole time Satan was building up Egypt telling the Pharaoh that he is a descendant of the gods, He is God on Earth, Hardening his heart against God and his people, leading the entire nation to sacrifice their children to him, leading a nation to practice demonic rituals in rebellion against God and then in a moment's notice he kills all of their firstborn sons in a single night. He led this nation into rebellion and simultaneously forged a spiritual weapon to use against a nation he raised up. The enemy of God has no regard for who he attacks, who he kills, how much they have done for him or anything. He hardens men's hearts in order to strike when the Iron is hot and then tries to tell people that it was God that killed all those people. God's hand was not raised against the people.

It's important to always remember that God is never the one that is afflicting you. It is also important to remember that your battle is not against the flesh and blood. That means your battle isn't against people, it against your pets, it isn't against yourself. The battle is against spiritual forces that are coming against you. As we already established a few paragraphs ago The pattern of rooting out the enemy as the source evil was established in Genesis 3; Now let's look at the pattern of evil so as to secure in your heart that it's always the devil that is attacking you in one way and then another. Once we truly identify it's always the devil's Fault and never God's fault when bad things seem to happen in your life. Join us in part four as we unravel the mystery of who's to blame in spiritual warfare.
