Luke 10:19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
This scripture came to mind because last night I walked into my room and had to put something away in the closet. I came out and there was my husband pointing at a baby scorpion on the floor. I said that scorpion looks flat, maybe I stepped on it when I came into the room. Sure enough I did and I used my vacuum cleaner to get rid of him. I love how Jesus gives us real time examples to ensure us that his promises are true.
We’ve encountered bullies in our day; they are the typical narcissists who roar like lions and show their saber tooth fangs when they want to intimidate. All the while they play the victim card so all their ducks are lined up in order to deceive. They are easy to spot when you’ve become familiar with this evil spirit.
NPD’s are great manipulators and false accusers even though there is nothing to accuse you about. It is their pleasure to bring you a false sense of guilt just for existing. If you breathe the same air they do, you have taken their space and will pay dearly for it.
These narcissists trick everyone into believing they are the martyrs of the first century but others fail to hear about the evil things they do and say behind their backs. It is a strategic way of conquering and dividing while they hold the innocence card.
You would think they were as fragile as an old newspaper, but these manipulators work their destructive plots and plans with a silencer so their audience cannot hear. The scapegoat becomes full of holes regardless of how kind and loving they are to the narcissist. If the scapegoat awakens to the fact they are being abused and go no contact, the npd will do everything they can to declare to the world their martyrdom.
They will play the mean-sweet cycle so they can reel their true victim back in for more blood. It is a nasty and cruel game these people play. I believe it is much like the spirit of Cain who killed his brother Abel. He had no regard for his brother’s blood and told God he was not his brother’s keeper, meaning I don’t care what happened to Abel and I don’t have to be accountable for my actions. It was not a good thing to say to God.
This spirit of destruction lives on seeking out those who love God and have pure hearts. These narcissists are like empty shells occupied with demonic entities or control. They have no conscience, no repentance and no remorse all the while in rebellion against God’s Holy Spirit.
When a believer does something wrong, God’s Holy Spirit convicts and this person feels grieving inside, causing them to ask God for forgiveness. When an NPD says I’m sorry it is because they manipulate you into thinking they are truly confessing their wrong doing, when in fact they are setting you up to let your guard down anticipating their next strike.
Usually you don’t get an I’m sorry unless they want to continue using you as their supply. They get used to kicking the same dog around and when that dog disappears, they go hunting for them. They’ll call everyone and say have you seen my doggie? I’ve lost my doggie and haven’t seen my doggie for days and days and I’m lonely for my doggie. Then in the evil reflexes of their minds they imagine giving their doggie a treat, then kicking their dog once again when the dog least expects it. This is the great finale for them as they award themselves a standing ovation.
Sympathizers weep over the narcissist’s sorrow of losing their favorite pet and raise an eyebrow when you don’t join in with the sympathy band wagon. Of course no one knows you have been selected as the npd’s doggie to kick around.
The scapegoat will be the target of the narcissist stare of death because they want to intimidate, attempting to control you with fear. You can actually see their duality play out as if they are wearing two masks…one to deceive others and one to kill their scapegoat.
But we must remember when we encounter or experience these evil people, we have been given the authority in Jesus Christ to trample over Scorpions and npd’s sting just as bad if not worse.
