Pastoral/Prophetic Warning from James 3

At the end of the service in El Dorado this last Sunday, I felt led to give a strong pastoral and prophetic warning to the body from James 3. 

James 3:14 But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast and be false to the truth. 15 This is not the wisdom that comes down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. 16 For wherejealousy and selfish ambition exist, there will be disorder and every vile practice. 17 But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere.

James warns that having a heart of bitter jealousy and selfish ambition opens the door to earthly, unspiritual, and even demonic things to happen in relationships. He goes further to say that where this stuff exist there is disorder and every vile practice. 

I have seen this happen in multiple families, churches, and even in the ministry at New Life. Doors have been open to vile practices, demonic influence, and thus disorder thorough jealousy, ambition(pride), and even anger mixed with offense. 

I am pleading with all of the spiritual family at New Life, as well as our friends from other ministries that read this, to please watch the 12 minute video below. Then please bring your heart before the Lord asking him to free you from any of these heart attitudes so that you might have kingdom order filled with peace in all of your relationships.
