Confidentiality for Pastors - A New Pathway to Spiritual Equilibrium
Shattered Souls:
The Foundation of a 
Hostile Work Environment

Psalm 14:4
Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? Who eat up my people as they eat bread, and call not upon the LORD.

Psalm 17:6-12
I have called upon thee, for thou wilt hear me, O God: incline thine ear unto me, and hear my speech. Show thy marvelous loving-kindness, O thou that savest by thy right hand them which put their trust in thee from those that rise up against them. Keep me as the apple of the eye; hide me under the shadow of thy wings, from the wicked that oppress me, from my deadly enemies, who compass me about. They are inclosed in their own fat: with their mouth they speak proudly. They have now compassed us in our steps: they have set their eyes bowing down to the earth; like as a lion that is greedy of his prey, and as it were a young lion lurking in secret places.

Galatians 6:7-8
Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

Shattered souls and wounded minds populate the work environment. Consequently, true Christians, or those who are simply unaware that they are working everyday in Satan's mouth, and are being gnawed on like they were an unsanctioned food source, are bombarded daily, every working day, all day long, by those who are walking and living in the darkness of their minds, feasting like cannibals on the flesh of innocents, whose very strength and essence are being sacrificed on a daily basis five days a week, for simply taking advantage of the opportunity given them to earn an honest living.

Employees are held captive in an environment of wolves feeding lasciviously and voraciously on the innocent lambs of God; faux gregarious soul hunters seeking prey, human beings who have baptized their humanity in the environs of hell, and came up from their degradation and wholehearted sin natures, hungry and determined to kill, steal and destroy, seemingly at will, whosoever unfortunately crosses their pathway.

The crux of the matter is sin, swallowing it whole and thereby becoming something, a thing really, other than what God created them to be; sons and daughters of God who will love Him with their whole heart. Having lost their humanity they, the shattered souls, otherwise known as Satan's disciples, become a circling animalistic gang with vulture-like mentalities, seeking whom they may devour without impunity, or so they wish to believe in the glaring lie. "Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap" (Galatians 6:7).

So what we have here is a gang with a leader who, no doubt, has gone into the depths of evil, and come out an unrecognizable replica of what human beings are supposed to be, an outer shell of a person resembling who he or she once was, like the shed skin of a snake, a leftover remnant of what once was; an intact human being having then become a shattered soul, wandering the world, likened unto Satan, in a devouring frame of mind.

So then we have a hostile work environment populated by the leftover remnants of humanity with rabid dog-like mentalities. Trying to work in such an environment requires the presence of God in your life. Either you will endure the trial of your faith, or you will quit and, no doubt, end up in a worse situation; another Satan's mouth posturing as a normal work environment.

Those who do not yet realize that they have been turned into food by cannibalistic natures are the most sad of all. They are left to run to and fro trying to comprehend why their lives are getting worse and worse by the day, why their strength is departing, why they are gaining weight, why their appearance is changing for the worse, why the light of their countenance is darkening, and why their friends and family are acting strange. 

They do not really comprehend yet that they have bumped into the walls of hell on earth, walls that were always present, but being captured in a hostile work environment every day, all day long, brings to the surface of their lives the predominant forces of hell; the children of Satan, a sort of devouring mechanism of fallen souls, crouching down inside themselves hiding, as it were, their true identity, wearing the smiling faces of cordiality, politeness, and sociableness, adorned with a happy-go-lucky persona, but underneath all the smiling faces that greet you every day (or not), are but dead men's bones, souls warped by the sins of the flesh, who have turned away from what they know in their hearts is right. Then, accepting wrong behavior in themselves and in others has become their norm, so dark their minds have become.
They wear their facades very well indeed, but a discerning individual, who has God at the center of their life, will see beyond their manufactured smiles of permeating death, mere suction devices of Satan who tries with all his might to lure more and more souls into the abomination of sexual perversions of every sort, into the depth of hell's angry unrelenting grasp.

The army of Satan's disciples have a strong hold on most work environments, unrelentingly and tenaciously holding on as though their very lives depends on it. It's such a devastating thing to behold; men and women having lost their souls to a fallen archangel who tried to usurp the Kingdom of God.

So having slow-danced with soul death in the arms of Satan, a people emerges who are indoctrinated in the ways of evil via witchcraft, plying their trade when and wherever they can; a contagious pervasive death of the soul brought about by disobedience to the laws and Word of God the Creator of all that is and will be. 

The work place has become a spiritual war zone, transformed into an enticing venue for the wicked, disobedient children of Satan to prey on those who represent the truth of God by living their lives according to the Word of God.

How do you withstand this daily assault on your person? Via the Holy Spirit within you is the only way to rise above those who seek your soul with a vengeance. The gang leader, as it were, leads and Satan's other peons mindlessly follow. Their methods of the annihilation of your soul veers around a persistent attack on and against your self-esteem, employing various ways of obscure assaults.

For instance, they may contrive to demote you instead of promoting you, or outright seek to get you fired using underhanded devious methods; a collusion of evil perpetrated against you. Your work may be undermined at every turn, or tampered with to make you appear to be incompetent. They will systematically turn you into a central target where you are prodded by the pitchforks of evil, which represents their own inner hatred of themselves. 

You may walk into work one day and discover that it is a non-speaking day, and you didn't get the e-mail. Everyone is avoiding speaking to you by acting like they don't hear you, or by not looking at you when you pass them. Even if you say hello or good morning anyway, you will get no response because it's a direct assault against the holiness of God within you, whom they absolutely hate. You are a reminder of how far they have fallen in sin, and of the depth of hell that they are trapped in, like insects in a spider's web, the spider being Satan, of course! 

Angry and vindictive because they are trapped in hell's grasp, the wicked turn on you like human snakes and bite you with the intent of killing you and, or destroying your soul, thereby turning you into dead meat; another dead soul upon whom they can feast voraciously, their natural appetites gone askew and having taken on the nature of Satan, evil is their god, like an invisible cloak that they wear.

You can expect to be picked on and prodded at every turn; you do this, that or the other wrong, you don't do this, that or the other; all petty irrelevancies in an effort to pummel you into accepting spiritual death as a lifestyle like unto them. The whole idea is to make your work environment unbearable. It may get so bad at times that you will feel like multiple straws are being poked into your body, and everyone is sucking your strength and essence away, simultaneously devouring you suck by suck like one would soda from a can with a straw! 
And you may be wondering why in the world would God place you in such a negative environment. You may think within yourself that God does not comprehend the pain and suffering that you are enduring at the hands of degenerate individuals, but keep in mind that there is nothing that God does not know, absolutely nothing! 

There is a reason why God has placed you into a hostile work environment. Because you are walking out your anointing! Meaning, God is using the negativity that you are enduring as a method of pouring his anointing upon you and in you, so that he can use you in ministry. Without pain and suffering there can be no anointing. 

Consequently, you are, for a lack of a better term, earning your anointing or building it up, for every day that you refuse to let hatred for the people who are using and abusing you grow in your heart, but maintaining a healthy perspective when contemplating all that they have done to you and against you, that would naturally earn your hatred, but for the grace of God in you, whose love permeates your being.

In short, God is using a hostile work environment as an anointing womb, a place of preparation to launch you into the world to use you to bring about change in the psyche of the world, towards his divine love, and the acceptance of his son, the Lord Jesus Christ, and his sacrifice on the cross on a hill called Calvary, which will lead to repentance and salvation, thus eternal life!

Even though Satan's disciples are going to spend eternity in hell, God is still getting some use out of their lives, by using them as a boot camp of sorts, to train his obedient children so that they can be productive soldiers in the eternal army of the Lord!

Fallen souls want to destroy your hope and faith in God. They want to bring your opinion of yourself down so low that you will accept less than you deserve, that you will accept them as fellow companions in hell's devastation. They sincerely want to trample your self-esteem and make you feel incompetent and bad about yourself in order to position you for destruction at their hands, in order to teach you the ways of evil via witchery, and lead you into a profound apostasy along with them, to a place where nothing is abhorrent to you, a place where all your inhibitions have fallen away, a place of soul darkness where you no longer sensor base and sinful desires, but give in to every destructive prevailing force like a kite flying stringless in the wind.

You will have plenty of spiritually dead friends then. Everyone at work will embrace you. You will receive promotions now because you have become one with the satanic mind, one with eternal damnation, and one with the fallen souls of haplessness.

Don't go there! Stay where you are, seemingly stranded on the isle of pain and suffering, friendless and alone, because it is a passing state of existence. Once God has finished using your enemies, your co-workers, friends or associates to bless you with the anointing he has stored up specifically for you, he will release you from the environs of that particular hell and transition you into another elevated hell where you will be more than prepared to deal with a higher level of enemies. You learn, become blessed through the process of becoming who God created you to be, and move on to another higher field blessings that automatically comes with its trials and tribulations. 

So the map is this: mistreatment, abuse and misuse gives birth to the anointing in your life, which inevitably gives way to blessings from the Lord. The weight of your trials and tribulations will always, always be equally balanced with the blessings God places in your life in order to make your situation bearable. It is a blessing to have the anointing to endure the making of you into a vessel fit for the master's use. 

Fear is an island where the wicked dwell. Their whole existence centers around fear, which comes from Satan, their defacto father who now stands in God's stead in their lives. They have evicted God from their hearts and minds, thus their lives, and the only one left to inhabit what is but a leftover remnant of themselves as God created them to be, is Satan, the dark one!

You may feel like running away from your life, but stay put, endure and learn, and when the time arrives for you to transition from one phase to another, it will happen naturally without very much effort from you. You will know that it is God's hand moving you because all things will work together assembling a complete whole, a picture, if you will, of where God is taking you and when, like one day gradually ending and another day beginning; a smooth transition, no jerks, no tumultuousness, no wondering, "Am I doing the right thing?" You will simply know. 

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber. But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out. And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice. And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him; for they know not the voice of strangers (St. John 10:1-5).

So be at peace in a hostile work environment. Find the place inside of you where God dwells. Pray always and know that God is aware of everything that you are enduring, and will not allow you to suffer more than you can bear. Be strong in the Lord and know that he is taking you to a higher level of blessing, a place where your purpose is fulfilled, a place where he will put a permanent smile in your heart!
