Prophetic Word: The Devourer Is An Illusion

The Lord showed me today that many of you have been having the enemy attack you with threats of devouring what’s yours. Specifically, the enemy has threatened you with:

  • unexpected sickness;
  • coming against your business deal; 
  • robbing your business of its well-trained employees that you need; 
  • robbing you of the help you need; and 
  • stealing your favor for no logical reason.

But the Lord wants you to know today that the devourer is an illusion.

Jesus Christ purchased TOTAL victory for you and me on the cross. When we are hidden in Him, the enemy cannot get to us unless we allow him to do so. The ways that we allow the enemy access to our lives include:

  • By disobeying God;
  • Through unforgiveness;
  • Through doubt and unbelief; and
  • Through unconfessed sin.

If you have any of these open doors in your life, CLOSE THEM IMMEDIATELY through forgiveness, repentance, confession, and obedience to God. Then, when you are right with God and are not cherishing sin in your heart, you can legally ask God to kick the enemy out of your life.

The enemy has no power over you when you are hidden in Christ.

The devil is a completely-vanquished foe. Jesus vanquished him on the cross. It’s just that the devil tries to trick you and make you think he has power in your life–but he doesn’t. And when you force the issue, you will win every time. It’s only if you keel over and let the enemy walk over you that you will lose.

In this season, also remember the legal rights you have with the Lord when you tithe.

The thief comes to steal, kill, and destroy, but the Lord wants me to remind you today that your tithe is your legal insurance policy. Your tithe gives you the right, 100% of the time, to ask the Lord to rebuke the devourer for your sake–and He will do it.

As it says in Malachi 3:10-12:

“‘Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and try Me now in this,’ says the Lord of hosts, ‘If I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it.

And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, so that he will not destroy the fruit of your ground, nor shall the vine fail to bear fruit for you in the field,’ says the Lord of hosts; ‘And all nations will call you blessed, for you will be a delightful land,’ says the Lord of hosts” (Malachi 3:10-12).

The tithe is another legal insurance policy you have with the Lord.

When you tithe, you can pray that the Lord would rebuke the devourer for your sake–and He will do it. He said He will, so He has to because you have met the conditions He laid out for this promise.

But some of you simply have not realized that it’s the devourer coming against you.

Your breakthrough is truly upon you. It’s happening now. But, the enemy has been trying to convince you that it isn’t.

You haven’t put two and two together, but the Lord wants to expose the war against you today. Review your circumstances right now. When you do, you will see that the enemy has been trying to:

  • devour your breakthrough;
  • devour your witness;
  • devour your results;
  • devour your ministry; and
  • devour your family.

The enemy has particularly been trying to devour your effectiveness for the Gospel. But in all these things, DON’T LET HIM.

The devourer is an illusion.

All he has is smoke and mirrors when you’re right with the Lord. If the devil can get you to believe his smoke and mirrors and get over into fear, doubt, and unbelief, then he’s got you. But if you will stand strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might–keeping your full armor on–then the enemy’s got no game against you. Nothing he does can touch you, because you are hidden in the shadow of God’s hand.

Remember that.

Does this word speak to your situation today? Did you simply need the tricks of the enemy exposed in your life, so you can know how to fight back? If so, please leave a comment below and CONFESS YOUR FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST!

      Dear Jamie,
      This word is definitely for me. I daily repent to Daddy Yeshua for areas in my life. I’ve forgiving others that have harmed and and mistreated me. I’ve went to some and prayed for those I’ve lost contact with. I’m repenting to God about my tithings, I was a consistent tither but.recently fell behind because my income monthly has been taken by debts. I’m begging God’s forgiveness. I’m tired of this. I want to be a consistent sower like before but I’m trusting God to bring me out of financial debts asap.

  3. Sonja Campbell says:

    The way you worded that really struck a chord! I will and did use the scripture to ask the Lord to rebuke the devourer, as his word said he would. I know he will!

  4. Hi Jamie

    I am not affiliated with a church. Can I give my tithe to a missionary or to your ministry for example?

    1. Hi Kyra. That’s a great question. The tithe is supposed to go to wherever you are fed spiritually. I always recommend that it goes to your local church that you attend. But, if you haven’t found a local church yet, then yes, you can tithe to wherever you are fed. I used to tithe to Joyce Meyer Ministries before I found a local church–because that was where I was fed. After I found a church, I simply transferred my tithe there.
      I hope this helps. If you’d like to read more details, I wrote more about the tithe here.
      Blessings to you!
      In Christ,

  15. Thank you for your writing, my life ha been in a bit of turmoil and I haven’t been able to figure out why, with the exception that the enemy is at hand and wants to hurt me and my family. In the name of Jesus I rebuke the devour and will not be made to forget how to pray.

  16. Thanks Jamie it’s powerful word ,I have just confess my sin and repented of my sin.There is change.

  17. Well spoken! God exceeds all! God profoundly created all, therefore he controls/ defeats all forces.

    I must share my profound power relies in God. He’s a righteous God! He’s not buyer/ seller. Therefore he can’t be bought/ he doesn’t entertain dirty politics/ favor. He’s a just/ righteous God.

    Color/ bank account size/ doesn’t phase God. He lives rich/ poor/ black/ white/ red/ yellow equally. The God I surrender before is AMAZING!

    Although we fall short of glory. As long as we live to please God. We shouldn’t have reason to fear. For God moves mountains, walk on water, controls all winds/ fire/ storms. Surely he’ll take care of his children living right, for what is right.

    In God I will FOREVER trust!

  18. Hallelujah!
    You are for us, not against us. I am who You say I am!
