“For if we go on sinning willfully after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a terrifying expectation of judgment and the fury of a fire which will consume the adversaries. Anyone who has set aside the Law of Moses dies without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. How much severer punishment do you think he will deserve who has trampled under foot the Son of God, and has regarded as unclean the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified, and has insulted the Spirit of grace? For we know Him who said, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay.” And again, “The Lord will judge His people.” It is a terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the living God.” (Hebrews 10:26–31, NASB95)
“You therefore, beloved, knowing this beforehand, be on your guard so that you are not carried away by the error of unprincipled men and fall from your own steadfastness,” (2 Peter 3:17, NASB95)
This one who vexes you is a product of the sin of the world. He has set his will deliberately against Mine. You do not need to need to be afraid of him for I have overcome the world. Keep the protective circle of purifying fire around you so that nothing of evil may come from him into your spirit to poison your or to harm your body. Beware (when you think you are strong) lest you fall through pride or self-righteousness into the enemy’s trap – even as this one has strayed into the devil’s clutches. Be wise to protect yourself by claiming My Blood. Let Me stand always between you and him. Leave him to Me. Only My Spirit can save him. Do not resent him or judge him. Judgment is Mine.
