Unveiling Household Enemies and How to Live with Them - 1


What are the three types of enemies?


I am writing this article to make you live in wisdom. It is not to make you cynical. It is for your good. In my previous article, I wrote about household enemies. However, in this article, I write in detail about the types of household enemies and how they operate and further share with you how to live and deal with them.

Remember the words of our Savior and Lord Christ Jesus, “A man's foes shall be they of his own household (see Matthew 10:36). The Creator of the Universe (Christ Jesus) said that our enemies are our closest neighbors.

Why do you doubt if Christ Jesus (Creator of humankind) says that our enemies are the ones closest to us? As stated, I am not writing this article to make you think negatively. I want you to live in wisdom.

It would be best if you didn’t fall into the trap of wolves in sheep's clothing. There are different types of enemies. I recommend you download and read my books on my blog, how to live and deal with enemies and Dominating the Dark Kingdom, for more profound revelations.

In my book (how to live and deal with enemies), I have listed the nine types of enemies and how you can live with them. It is better to believe the words of Christ Jesus than to believe the word of humankind.

God is not a man that he should lie (see Titus 1:2, Number 23:19). Whatever Christ Jesus says is true because He cannot lie. It is good to trust and love people. However, don’t be fooled by smiles and generosity.

Christ Jesus commanded us to love our neighbors and enemies. However, you must apply wisdom. Playing with a poisonous snake and crocodile is ignorance. You live at the mercy of these wild animals. This is one reason I am writing this article to help you live in wisdom.

Love people from your heart. However, apply wisdom in the relationship. Putting all your trust in humankind and ignoring the Word of God can lead to destruction (see Jeremiah 17:5). In this article, I will show you from the Holy Scriptures how neighbors, siblings, close friends and family members betrayed and destroyed their loved ones.

The Holy Bible is not a historical book. The Holy Bible enlightens our path. Within the Holy Bible, we can receive uncommon wisdom (Connect with my teachings for more wisdom keys).

Some enemies have covenanted with evil spirits to destroy you and your loved ones. You cannot love such enemies. The fact that Christ Jesus commanded us to love our enemies does not mean we should love every enemy.

Enemies are in levels. I recommend downloading and reading my free book on my blog, how to live and deal with enemies, for more profound revelations. Have you asked yourself why Christ Jesus did not commit himself to humankind?


Now when he was in Jerusalem at the passover, in the feast day, many believed in his name, when they saw the miracles which he did.

But Jesus did not commit himself unto them, because he knew all men,

And needed not that any should testify of man: for he knew what was in man.

John 2:23-25 KJV

God Almighty (Christ Jesus) did not commit himself to his creation (human beings) because he knew what they were. Christ Jesus knew humankind's weakness, wickedness, and unfaithfulness; therefore, he did not give himself to them.

Are you wiser than Christ Jesus (God Almighty)? I hope you know that Christ Jesus is God Almighty (see 1 Timothy 3:16 or get my book, the trinity of God, for more profound revelations).

Christ Jesus worked with people. However, he did not put all his trust in them. Christ Jesus trusted humankind to a certain point. Some people trust their family and friends to the extent that they give their entire hearts to them.

Apply wisdom before they send you to a psychiatric hospital. Apply wisdom before you commit a grievous sin. Don’t enter the graveyard before your time with your blind “love”. It is time to apply wisdom.

Some people are highly pessimistic. I am not writing this article to make you an extreme pessimist. Be an optimist. However, don’t allow your optimism to blind you. It would be best if you thought twice.

This is one reason God gave us two brains, two eyes, two legs, two ears, and two hands. God expect us to use each of them. Using one brain, leg, eye, and hand can limit you. Love people from your heart.

However, apply wisdom. Loving and trusting people is biblical and healthy. However, the same Holy Bible tells us that our enemies can be our closest mates (meditate on Matthew 10:36, John 2:23-25).

Your husband, wife, child, brother, sister, father, mother, closest friend, boss, employee, “spiritual leader,” and animal can be your greatest enemy in disguise. You may be your greatest enemy.

Yes, you can be your greatest enemy. Lucifer became his enemy because of his beauty, power, and position. Because of his beauty, power, and rank, he became proud. He decided to take the place of God Almighty.

Some people allow their beauty, gifts, wealth, connections, assets, and status in life to blind them. They allow these temporal assets to control them, paving the way for Satan and Sin to dominate them. You cannot see the outward enemy until you deal with the enemy within. Remove the dirt in your eyes so you can see the dirt in others.


And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?

Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?

Matthew 7:3-4 KJV

Work on your heart. After working on your heart, you can see the real enemy. Our real enemy is Satan. However, there are nine levels of enemies. I will deal with household enemies because they are dangerous.

You cannot play with a poisonous cobra. You live at the mercy of the cobra. God fights our enemies. However, there are some enemies you must fight. God told the Israelites that He had given them the promised land (Canaan).

However, the Israelites had to fight to possess the promised land. Christ Jesus said we live among serpents and wolves (see Matthew 10:16). Some snakes are not poisonous. “You can live with such snakes.”

Some snake's poison can kill within minutes. Some, too, take a long time. The poison kills softly. Some household enemies destroy and kill when an opportunity comes. Some, too, destroy and kill slowly.

Some evil spirits, too, operate with the serpentine spirits. It would be best to know the difference. Some household enemies act like wolves. They love to dominate. Their main weapon is fear, domination, and abuse.

The serpentine enemies use seduction and deception. I will show you from the Holy Scriptures how these enemies operate. I will further share some practical wisdom keys you can use to break their power.


The last days’ household enemies

For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three.

The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.

Luke 12:52-53 KJV

Christ Jesus stated that division will set in homes in the last days. A father will be against his son, a mother against her daughter. Family members will disintegrate in the last few days. This is a decreed prophecy.

These are last day’s household enemies. Because of Christ Jesus, your family can become your enemy. Your boss, co-workers, and schoolmates can turn against you. Your husband, wife, parents, children and co-workers can turn against you because of your faith in Christ Jesus.

Your loved ones will fight you to the face because of your stand with Christ Jesus and the Church. Some will emotionally, financially, socially, physically, technologically, spiritually, and intentionally abuse you in the last few days because of Christ Jesus. You can give up on your faith if you are not spiritually strong. You will succumb to their hatred and abuse if you are not strong in the Lord. The best way to stand this persecution is to endure.


…he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

Matthew 24:13 KJV

You need the grace of endurance to stand the tyranny of household enemies. Connect with my message (Unwavering faith to stand in the last days) on youtube for more wisdom keys.


Eliab fights his brother.

And David spake to the men that stood by him, saying, What shall be done to the man that killeth this Philistine, and taketh away the reproach from Israel? for who is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should defy the armies of the living God?

And the people answered him after this manner, saying, So shall it be done to the man that killeth him.

And Eliab his eldest brother heard when he spake unto the men; and Eliab's anger was kindled against David, and he said, Why camest thou down hither? and with whom hast thou left those few sheep in the wilderness? I know thy pride, and the naughtiness of thine heart; for thou art come down that thou mightest see the battle.

And David said, What have I now done? Is there not a cause?

1 Samuel 17:26-29 KJV

Jesse, David’s father, sent David to give food to his brothers, waiting to fight the Philistine Champion (Goliath). However, Goliath was defiling the Israelites and their God. David, a man after God’s heart, decided to face Goliath.

However, his elder brother, Eliab, intervened. In verse twenty-eight, Eliab said David was proud and disobedient. Maybe, Eliab was trying to protect his brother from Goliath. However, if you analyze the words of Eliab, you will see that Eliab hated David.

This was an opportunity for David to display the power of God. However, his brother accused him. Eliab, who was supposed to encourage David, destroyed his reputation. Because of that, the men of war also abused David.

What would have happened if David had given up? He would have lost the opportunity. David believed in the God of Israel. However, his brother doubted and dumped him. Eliab wanted to cover the light of David.

Some people may think Eliab was trying to protect David’s life. Maybe Eliab knew Goliath was a giant and skilled warrior. Maybe Eliab thought David was too young and unskilled to fight Goliath.

Maybe Eliab saw that David was not fit to fight Goliath, so he used those words on his brother. However, I firmly believe Eliab acted out of jealousy and hatred. If it was love, Eliab would have taken David to a corner and rebuked him or advised him not to face Goliath or even given David the reasons why he must not face Goliath.

If Eliab loved David from his heart, he would not have humiliated David in front of the men. If Eliab loved David, he would have used his words wisely in front of the warriors. However, Eliab did not want David to shine.

Eliab (David’s eldest brother) disgraced David in public. David did not give up. He persevered. Sometimes, your family, church, school, and associates can see your potential. They know what you can do if you get the opportunity.

However, they will sabotage and humiliate you. What would have happened if David had succumbed to the insults and disgrace of his brother? Probably he would not have faced Goliath. David killing Goliath opened a door for him to shine in Israel.

Some friends and family can abuse you because of your age. David was young. However, he did not allow his age and structure to limit him. You know what you can do. You know your potential, gifts, wisdom, knowledge, and faith.

Don’t let false accusations, insults, gossip, rejection, and humiliation destroy your faith and opportunity. Your siblings and loved ones may humiliate you out of ignorance. Some authority figures may look down on you.

They may say all manner of evil to ruin your reputation. That’s the work of household enemies. Household enemies use insults, humiliation, hatred, and slander to destroy. However, be persistent, disciplined, sacrificial, faithful, and focused.

Imitate the good virtue of David. Have faith in God. Don’t give up. Keep moving despite the disgrace and gossip. If you keep moving, you will triumph over household enemies. This is the introduction. I will write in detail in the next article. Kindly share the link to this article so others can grow in wisdom.
