Satan and his kingdom of darkness promotes worry as a mental attitude sin which is self-induced and therefore filled with soulish torment or anxiety regarding anything in life.

 

 

Just before God the Father throws Satan down to the earth in the middle of the Tribulation period, he gives Satan the key and the power and authority to release the first demon assault army.

Worry always anticipates the worst, and so becomes anticipation of danger, misfortune, trouble, or uncertainty.

For the first time in human history since Gen 6, fallen angels will actually be available.
Greek Mythology will have their so-called gods on earth again.

Worry is a state of restlessness and agitation, producing mental disturbance, uneasiness, anxiety, and painful uncertainty.

The opening is the entrance and the exit for the great underworld prison known as the abyss.

Worry will short circuit the function of the faith-rest technique and causes the believer to be pinned down in no man’s land.

If you retreat, you do not go back to your previous stage of spiritual growt­h, you’re out of fellowship, you’re out of the PPOG, you go back to reversionism or no man’s land.

Once you get out into no man’s land, either you go forward and take the objective or you retreat into reversionism, as we have used the phrase in the past, you crash and burn.

Worry then causes the believer to be pinned down in no man’s land, and to be pinned down in no man’s land means to become a casualty for backsliding.

 

 

JER 3:12 Go and proclaim these words toward the north, and say, Return, thou backsliding Israel, saith the LORD; and I will not cause mine anger to fall upon you: for I am merciful, saith the LORD, and I will not keep anger for ever.

JER 3:14 Turn, O backsliding children, saith the LORD; for I am married unto you: and I will take you one of a city, and two of a family, and I will bring you to Zion:

JER 3:22 Return, ye backsliding children, and I will heal your backslidings. Behold, we come unto thee; for thou art the LORD our God.

HOS 14:4 I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely: for mine anger is turned away from him.

The word for locusts is akrides used for an army of destruction.

Worry is a destroyer of the soul. If unchecked, it results in mental illness.

Worry in the mind causes shock to the body, PRO 12:25 Anxiety in the heart of a man weighs it down, but a good word makes it glad.

Worry is a satanic device to lead the believer into reversionism and the sin unto death, EZE 4:15-17.

Worry is a great weapon in the hands of Satan because the forces of evil take over the soul as a result of worry.

Bad news causes worry, JER 49:23ff.

Worry causes hysteria, LUK 10:41 But the Lord answered and said to her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and bothered about so many things;

People cause worry. People are always worried about other people. Worriers have to have an object, 1SA 10:2.

Economic disaster is a cause of worry, JER 42:16.

Sin causes worry. People worry about sin which causes guilt,
PSA 38:18.
Worry is a sin, ROM 14:23b.

We are ordered to stop worrying, LUK 12:29 “And do not seek what you shall eat, and what you shall drink, and do not keep worrying.”

Worry distracts from doctrinal teaching, MAT 13:22;
LUK 8:14.

Blessing from God includes freedom from worry,
JER 17:7-8.

 

JER 2:19 Thine own wickedness shall correct thee, and thy backslidings [apostasies or faithlessness] shall reprove thee: know therefore and see that it is an evil thing and bitter, that thou hast forsaken the LORD thy God, and that my fear is not in thee, saith the Lord GOD of hosts.

 

PHI 4:6 Stop worrying about anything, but in every circumstance through prayer and through supplication for personal needs after thanksgivings let your requests or petitions be revealed to the God.
