Poking Peninnah

1 Samuel 1:7It happened year after year, as often as she went up to the house of the LORD, Peninnah provoked her; so she wept and would not eat.”

PENINNAHs’ inside the church:

At the outset let me clarify, POKING PENINNAH need not necessarily be only women, since it is an ‘evil spirit’ this operates in both genders, so remember we are dealing with a spirit and not a woman.  Look at the drama INSIDE the church between two women who go to the temple of God year after year!!!! Peninnah (evil) provoked her ceaselessly and Hannah wept ceaselessly!! Despite going to the House of God both the women had no transformation in their lives.  This is exactly what we see in the lives of many who read the Bible 24 hours, wake up early kneel down and pray; however, they are bitter, angry, envious, murmuring, grumbling, poisonous, fighting and lot more.

James 3: 14 says:” But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your heart, do not be arrogant and so lie against the truth. 15 This wisdom is not that which comes down from above, but is earthly, natural, demonic. (Read verses 16-18 also) Apostle Paul warns about such people:” They will act religious, but they will reject the power that could make them godly. Stay away from people like that!” (2 Tim 3:5) This crowd are outwardly godly but inwardly worldly and devilish( apologize for the word but that’s the fact) They would slander and gossip about the servants of God and even their own pastor and his family.  Did you notice this, that both the women go to the same House of God year after year, pray to the same Heavenly Father( we have only one God not many like the other faith) and plead their respective causes.  Peninnah had no remorse  or regret about her behavior and Hannah was not anointed enough to deal with the demon behind Peninnah.  Anybody listening to me? These are spirits which come against light and work of the Kingdom.  There are Peninnah spirits operating inside our homes, family, school, church,  the choir, youth group, prayer group, team fellowship and also in offices , their motive is to dominate, boss over, scream, frighten you, irritate, frustrate and kill the anointing in you, in one word – make you flee from God. Ah! Dangerous!

Some people would say, “ I will fast and pray against your family who is coming against me”, ‘I am a prayer warrior don’t touch me”, “ I am a child of God I will pray and destroy you” – all such words they will directly roar against the people.  Such words are carnal and these also are proud Peninnah spirits,  beware! ’These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me.” said the Lord. (Matthew 15:8)
