Deliverance From the Spirit of Destructive Anger

Length: 103 pages1 hour



James 1:19-20; ''Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath. For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.''     

Handling anger is an important life skill. Christian counselors report that 85 percents of people who come in for counseling have problems dealing with anger. Anger can shatter communication and tear apart relationships, and it ruins both the joy and health of many. Sadly, people tend to justify their anger instead of accepting responsibility for it.

Everyone struggles, to varying degrees, with anger. Thankfully, God's Word contains principles regarding how to handle anger in a godly manner, and how to overcome destructive anger. 

Overcoming the spirit of destructive anger is not accomplished overnight. But through prayer, Bible study, and reliance upon God's Holy Spirit, the spirit of destructive anger can be overcome. We may have allowed anger to become entrenched in our lives by habitual practice, but we can also practice responding correctly until that, too, becomes a habit and God is glorified in our response.

 If you want the great and mighty things God has for you in life to manifest, you must get to the root of destructive anger and deal with it.  Everybody has to deal with anger from time to time. But what's the best way to handle it? To answer that question, we must first understand what destructive anger really is.

 Destructive anger is an intense emotional response rooted in annoyance, displeasure, indignation, wrath, vengeance, or hostility which is usually irrationally.

 Many times, reacting in anger is how we express our dissatisfaction with life. It's defined in the Greek language as the strongest of all passions. Destructive anger begins with a feeling that's often expressed in words or actions. We feel something and it causes a reaction.

Ephesians 4:26-27; "Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun goes down upon your wrath: Neither gives place to the devil."

In this scripture, Paul tells us anger must be quickly resolved and not be allowed to continue beyond a day. If I get angry at the beginning of the day I must have it dealt with by the end of that same day. I know that sounds strange and almost legalistic to say it like that, but there is a big reason Paul is telling us to resolve anger quickly. If you do not, it gives the devil an open door into your life.

In the spirit world like attracts like. If we allow anger to continue and not be resolved speedily, demons that reside in hell are attracted to us and will begin to influence and build strongholds in our lives.

Matthew 5:21-22; "You have heard that it was said to those of old, 'You shall not murder, and whoever murders will be in danger of the judgment.'' 

''But I say to you that whoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment. And whoever says to his brother, 'Raca!' shall be in danger of the council. But whoever says, 'You fool!' shall be in danger of hell fire.'' 

Jesus was saying hellfire, meaning demons that reside in hell (and these are really bad demons), have access to us if we do not resolve our anger and resultant anger-driven behavior. That is pretty serious!
