Have you ever wondered why bad things happen to good people? I have. It has often caught my attention and staggered my imagination. Why is it that innocent people are the ones that always get hurt? Why is it that evil always seems to overshadow good?
What struck me even more is how people, families, ministries, or even whole nations can be victims of an atmosphere of recurring negative events without any logical explanation.
I found it baffling to see Christian people, fully committed to the Lord and His Word, still falling victim to unjust cycles in their lives including patterns of early or tragic deaths in the family, cycles of divorce, sexual abuse, human exploitation, or family violence.
It is perplexing to see deeply committed people doing their best and never truly achieving the fruits of their efforts. To see people working as hard as they can and never becoming prosperous. To see good, honest people fighting and struggling as though they are constantly swimming against the current.
It's as though they’re fighting against an invisible force opposing all their attempts to move forward in their lives. For example, a person who works very hard but never receives a just payment for all their good intentions and efforts.
Another example is the many innocent children who are abused emotionally or sexually, or who are even exploited in child labor camps. Girls who have been sold as prostitutes, women from around the world who have been given false promises and are then forced into prostitution through intimidation by their exploiters.
This paints a very sad and dark picture of our world, which inevitably leads us to ask, "Why are there so many unjust and painful acts in a world that is governed by a good and almighty God?”
In a study done by the United Nations in 2014, it was documented that there were 27 million slaves around the world. (Incidentally, this is the highest number of any given century in human history.)
The study also showed that anywhere from 600,000 to 800,000 people are trafficked annually. It also found that from these persons that are being trafficked every year, 50 percent are women and 50 percent are underaged children.
What is the evil force behind all these atrocious doings? How do these deplorable circumstances continue to be active in today's world? How is it that we as a modern society are doing everything humanly possible to stop these vicious, corrupt practices, and yet they actually increase every year?
Why must good people always pay the price for the sinful actions of others? Why does it seem the evil doers around this world always end up getting the spotlight? Why do even some well-intentioned believers end up falling into the same social patterns?
Is there actually a spirit force behind all these evil and unjust happenings occurring around our world? What is this spirit that leaves a trail of pain and destruction in its wake, as well as a society filled with desperate uncertainty?
Yes, there is a spiritual force behind all these inexplicable atrocities, and its name is the spirit of injustice. This book reveals the truth behind the evil spirit of injustice, which has been assigned to cause opposition and difficulty for all faithful believers.
This spirit operates in people through recurring unjust events such as cycles of job loss, being falsely accused, and extreme difficulty in reaching prosperity, among many others. This spirit also operates through entire nations under the guise of dictatorships, unjust and corrupt political practices, abuse of power or divisions of social classes.
This spirit also works heavily over complete families, and provokes cycles of inexplicable tragedy such as members of a given family being sexually harassed or abused, family members being widowed sooner than expected, a cycle of early deaths in the family, or cycles of continual poverty.
The spirit of injustice can also operate in Christian ministries, resulting in ministerial stagnancy. These ministries cannot seem to grow, advance or progress no matter how much they pray or how much work they try to accomplish for the kingdom. This evil spirit can also operate by causing financial limitations or inner rebellion among the church members, just as it can operate by making false accusations against a ministry or its representatives. It can also work though criticism, betrayal and gossip. It does all this with the sole intent of discrediting the ministry so it cannot grow and expand.
It is important to note that the spirit of injustice is not like other evil spirits. Its main difference is the subtle ways in which it operates. Its attacks are very difficult to detect and it can be operating over a person without them even being aware that its happening. You could be under attack by the spirit of injustice right now. In fact, most people will only know that they have been attacked by this spirit because of the wake of destruction it has left in their lives.
Even when we see the massive devastation, the emotional scars and the destruction of our families, we still ask ourselves questions like “Why do these negative things happen to me? Why is life treating me so unfairly? What did I do to deserve all these bad things?”
We’ll often even resort to blaming God for all this negativity that's going on in and around our lives. We'll say things like “Why does God allow all these bad things to happen to me? If God really loves me so much, why did he allow me to get raped when I was a child? Why does a loving God allow forced prostitution and child trafficking?”
Sometimes we go so far as to blame ourselves by convincing our minds that there is actually something really wrong with us and that we deserve all these negative things that are occurring in our lives.
Another way we could rationalize all these occurrences is to start blaming others, which would cause us to make enemies and thus harbor resentment in our hearts. We might have all these possible reactions and still not realize what is actually causing all these negative events to occur. We inevitably try to fight against the odds with our physical and emotional strengths, never to see any kind of real solution.
Although this type of fight may seem noble, we are at a great disadvantage when we try to do this alone and in the natural. Unbeknownst to us, we are trying to fight a spiritual war with physical weapons, when we need to learn how to fight in the spirit realm. Whenever we face the spirit of injustice and try to fight a spiritual battle with physical weapons, we will lose.
But thank God for the revelation of the Holy Spirit! It is the Holy Spirit who reveals to us the existence of the spirit of injustice, and teaches us how to effectively fight it off so it cannot exercise its authority over our lives anymore.
In this book, you will learn how to identify this evil spirit of injustice, how it operates, what strategies it uses to attack us, and how it can slither into our lives and begin to whisper his lies to us, our families, our ministry and our nation.
We will also cover themes like casting out the cycles of injustice from our lives, how to come out victorious from its attacks and how to activate the blessings of God.
This book also includes a prayer guide of renouncement against the spirit of injustice, a prophetic declaration of deliverance against this evil spirit of injustice and a three day journey of prayer and fasting, which will guide you step by step in how to be permanently free from this horrific spirit.
This book also contains a prophetic declaration of self-identity that will help you reaffirm your true identity as a believer, to see yourself as Jesus sees you and not as the circumstances of the past have made you out to be.
