What Are We Unleashing Into This World-A Word by Lori Suiter
My heart breaks to watch many within the kingdom use written and verbal
FIRE AGAINST FIRE in attacking their human “enemies.” I heard this term in
my prayer time this morning. It’s a term that means that you use the same
tactics as your enemies on them and fire back even more intensely. My
question who is supplying the fire power? Seems like much of the spiritual
fire unleashed especially on social media is hell fire and soulish and not
Holy Spirit at all. This is NOT only a social media issue, it’s an issue
across the board. It’s in every workplace, family, and church, to some
Look at the fruit that follows. Holy Spirit fire brings reverence,
repentance, and humility in its wake. Hellfire leaves pain, discouragement,
anger, and bloody bodies in its wake. Holy Spirit fire purifies and
restores the former beauty and original intent. Hell fire’s only intent is
destruction of people and the things they hold dear.
James 3:6 – 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.
What does the bible say as to how we should treat our fellow humans when we
disagree? Our “enemies.” Does it tell us to fight fire with fire? No.
We are told in Ephesians 6:12 –
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the
rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world
and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
This is where we fight hell fire with holy fire. This is a call to
intercession for the people being used as puppets in the enemies plans. If
we can see them as hostages it helps tremendously.
What about the flesh and blood? How are we called to treat the actual
people involved? We are called to LOVE them.
To the contrary, “if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty,
give him something to drink; for by so doing you will heap burning
coals on his head.” Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with

We will not change this world by treating people the way they treat us. We
are called to a higher standard. We must overcome evil with good.
Luke 6:27-28 –
“But I say to you who hear, Love your enemies, do good to those who
hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you.
Ephesians 4:29 –
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what
is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may
benefit those who listen.
I think Jesus was the best example when He uttered the words on the
cross…FATHER FORGIVE THEM FOR THEY DONT KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING. We should
be able to do the same if it is truly Him living in us.
I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ
lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the
Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
We must counter the hate we see in this world with love, the mean
spiritedness with kindness, the harshness with gentleness, the division
with unity, the depression with hope, bitterness with joy, the slander with
compliments, the violence with peace, the death with life. The ONLY way to
overcome the evil we experience in the day to day is with the good we
Sometimes instead of seeking deeper and deeper revelations from God we need
to go back to the basics of how we should live and how we should treat one
Each one of us is making this world into what it will be with our
attitudes, behavior, and the words we speak. If we want to see change it
has to start with us. Let’s be the love we want to see in this world. If we
are going to unleash something into the atmosphere let it be LOVE!
