VideoCast #65: Know Your Temperament and Sharpen Your Spiritual Warfare


This is Deliverance Ministry. FM video cast number 65. Welcome to another episode of Deliverance ministry.fm
where we give you proven insights about the demonic realm and deliverance ministry so
that you can wage spiritual warfare more effectively. This is Don Ibbitson. I behind the mic again with my cohost and
colleague Phyllis Tarbox. Okay. Dr Don, how you doing today? I’m doing fine. Thanks. It’s a beautiful day here. And in Tampa, we’ve had some cold weather,
but um, it’s, uh, we’re, we’re on the rebound cold for us. I should say, probably probably add that 31
now. It’s pretty cold for a lot of people. Yeah, it was, we’re not used to that here,
but we’re on the rebound and today we’ve got another topic. Um, this, uh, I don’t, I guess the best way
to say it is we’ve, we’ve touched on this topic in a bunch of different podcasts. When you go back and listen to things, you,
you find bits and pieces of it, they were going to kind of try to tie it together and,
and basically the focus is on, um, trying to share with you how knowing your inborn
temperament, how God made you strengths and weaknesses can help you be more effective
in spiritual warfare. Yeah, I think it’s going to be interesting. I hope it is. I hope people find it useful. Um, you know, are, we’re going to talk about,
uh, some of the, some examples we use in, in ministry, some of the people that we’ve
seen for some of these different, um, different temperaments and, um, you know, I guess I
should say from kind of from the, from the get go is that where the ref, the terms that
we’re using for temperament analysis come from what’s called the Arnold profile system. And you know, we don’t have time to review
it all here. We’ve done other podcasts and there’s a lot
of articles on, it’s basically a clinical diagnostic tool from the National Christian
counselors association that the, that the, that lays out, um, a persons, uh, and once
again inborn temperaments, kind of the way they’re made with strengths and weaknesses. And it looks at it in three different areas. Inclusion, social orientation, if you like. How social is a person control, how much does
a person want to be in charge and in relationships, are they independent or dependent on other
people? And the third area is affection. Do they do, people do need a lot of affection
from coast person. So it’s like I said, I can’t get into all
that here. There’s a lot of information on our website
a and B, counseling.com you can look under there and look under the counseling services
and MC understanding your temperament and click. And there’s a lot of things there as you see
a lot of other, a lot of other podcasts. But um, you know, what we’re gonna do is,
like I say, you know, the whole premise behind it is that we take people through deliverance. And after we take them through deliverance,
one of the things we tell them is when the spirits try to come back that the, the battlefield
is going to be the mind, the mind they’d say they do. And then they’ll try to come after your, your
weaker areas because those are the low places in the wall, right? Those breaches the wall or the enemy’s going
to try to get you to, to bow. So by going over some of these temperament
types, um, and knowing your temperament, it helps you be more alert to how the enemy’s
going to try to come back at you. Well, I think, I think that’s the point. You know, we, we, these demonic spirits will
come back and they know a lot of boaters. I, Dan and we lose Sunni how they taste always. You know, I mentioned, you know, you’re kind
of amused when people say, I don’t want to speak it out loud because I don’t want Satan
to, to hear me. And you know, and it’s like, look at the devil. Demonic Kingdom knows a lot about you. They are the ones that they know, the hear
everything you say, they see everything you do. So they know a lot, they know a lot of our
weaknesses and they don’t need a temperament profile to figure a lot of too because, and
I think that’s the point in different and they use different strategies and tactics
are customized to different temperance and any, and so that’s what we want to go on because
of the demons are using this. Certain taxes are going to work with certain
people aren’t going to work for others. And if we know our own temperament, yes, then
we can be prepared for when he’s tried to come back. I think that’s a good battle tool too. If you do have that knowledge. I mean knowledge is power, right? Well it is, you know, it is important. And so, um, that’s the focus today is, and
obviously we’re trying to make subtly, I guess the case for it, you know, obviously we do
deliverance ministry, but even if you haven’t been through deliverance, this will still
help you. It will cause these demons. You might, you may need deliverance, but the
spirits are still there. If they’re not sitting there trying to come
upon you, what they’re going to use these tactics. So if you haven’t been through deliverance,
this will still help you. But for Laissez, say for people who have gone
through deliverance with us, we, you know, and continue on with counseling, different
things. We really try to, to help them weed guess,
knowing their issues and their background and the things they’ve been through and their
temperament. If we’d done the Arnold profile system, then
we can help them specifically with things. So that’s the point. And obviously the, the encouraged, my hope
is that, that, you know, as you listen to this, if you haven’t been through deliverance,
you’ll, you’ll get it done somewhere with somebody if you know. And, and if you, if you have done that or
even if you haven’t, then this clinical diagnostic tool is Arnell profiles is very powerful,
very accurate, very accurate, you know, teach you about yourselves. We’ve, we’ve administered thousands of these
things and they are accurate. So, um, once again, that’s where we’re going
with this. We’re going to talk about each of the, each
of the temperament types, there is five different temperament types in the Arnold profile system
and uh, once again, and these can be applied over three different areas, social interaction,
control and affection. And so, you know, let’s just start off, we’re
going to give some examples. So some specific examples for each of the,
of a temperament types we go forward. But, but let’s talk about, first of all, the
melancholy. Melancholy by nature. Our loaders are loners, they’re deep analytical
thinkers. They typically set very high goals for themselves. These your to do list people, you know, I’m
kind of fall into this category a bit, but the [inaudible] they set very high goals. There can be some darkness, there are more
artists then kind of introspective there. Yeah, yeah, yeah. And once again, these are the, when we say
melon calling, some people say, well I’m melancholy, but they might be melancholy, collusion, control,
you know, phlegmatic and control. So I guess land, there are different blends. There are different things. So when we talk about the tendencies that
we see here, they could be at any one of these areas are or people who are primarily melancholia
and we see that a lot too. Sometimes people have two or three in the
same area, so so melancholies or the loners. The next group we’ll talk about is the supine
temperament. They tend to be the servant hearts, right? Yeah. Those are those, the ones that churches love
to have because they’re the ones that are going to do all the work behind the scenes. They’re constantly giving, they’ll give you
the shirt off their back, but they’re, they tend to be a little bit indirect in their,
in their car, in their communication, and they can become doormats because they don’t
express their needs and so get people to read their mind. They want you to and read their minds. That’s the point. So that can create problems. The third group? No. Once again, you know, I emphasize we’re touched
on these very quickly, not covered all the aspects you, you need to read more to get
that, that. The third temperament area we’ll talk about
is the sanguine and they’re the ones, they’re the bright sunshiny people. They will walk into a room, they light up,
they love to be the center of attention, and I just said that to our receptionist over
at our Clearwater office. I said, oh my goodness, I’m so glad that you’re
back because when you’re gone it’s just not as bright and cheery in here because she’s
just chatty and affable. She has never met a stranger. She just lights the place up with joy and,
and people like that sang. She’s probably right job for her because he’s
still to be a lot of people that’ll be around people to get energized when they’re around
people and sort of receptionist, you know? That’s a great job for that, for that temperament. Fourth grouping is the collarx and they tend
to be the ones that are the, they’re the take the, they’re good at getting things done. They can take charge, you give them 10 things
to do and they’ll get them done. The leaders, they are leaders. That doesn’t mean the other temperaments can’t
leave, but these folks can, they’re task oriented and you know, they just, they can get stuff
done there. And so a lot of, you know, and as we highlighted
before it for each temperament type, there is no better or there’s no worse that there
are strengths and weaknesses. Right. And I think that’s the thing. And once again, the focus that we’re going
to get to here is some of the weaknesses of these temperaments that the demonic kingdom,
we’ll try to explore it. So that’s the cleric type and the flood Maddix
are characterized by kind of peacemakers, kind of low energy folks. They just, they’ll do anything to avoid a
fight and just having bosses in the world because they don’t confront, don’t like conflict. Sounds like that’s personal experience. Talking to them. I had one over at the other place that he
was the best boss ever because he just let me have my way. But that’s, he took credit for everything
because of his low energy. That’s not so nice. All right. Well, okay. But um, yeah, that’s, they’re the ones there. Um, like I say, they, they just go along the,
and as we’ll talk about stubbornness, some of the, what are they going to be one of their
problem areas. So those are kind of the five and overview
of kind of the five, um, different, uh, temperament types and what, you know, now we’re going
to kind of take those. And those are, these are counseling issues,
these are inborn temperament things and they apply to anybody. Anybody can take the profile, whether we’re
Christian or Muslim or a Hindu or an atheist or agnostic or whatever, because the, the
tool is useful and we, and we do use it a lot for people who aren’t interested in deliverance. I mean, sometimes they come in and that’s
the first thing. So that’s, that’s the temperament. So let’s, okay, well then you get that, that’s
a counseling thing. How do you help people with that in the, in
the spiritual warfare realm. And as you’re listening to this, you hopefully
you’ll be, you’ll get some insight as to how this can help you. And you know that we know these spirits, these
demon spirits that are out there, they’re spirit beings and we’ve kind of, we’ve already
touched on it. They hear everything we say, right? And of course if they are inside of us, there
are tormenting, we need deliverance. But they know a lot. They hear what we say, they see what we do. I know I’m a different books out there that
fictional books. I mean, I know cs Lewis’s Screwtape letters
kind of gives a fictional, you know, overview of demonic realm than in years past. Some of you folks who are older, if you’re
younger people listen to this. Um, you should, um, consider going after the
books. The, I’m piercing the darkness, dark, this
present darkness. Yeah, that’s it. The first two books, good books, fictional
books, but they give a good insight. I think it really of how these demonic spirits
work. And as we talked about, they haven’t pretty
good. You know, they observe, they hear, they see,
they hear things that people had prophetic words spoken over them. They know a lot what’s been spoken. They see what we, what we do. They hear what we say and we teach demon spirits
can put thoughts in our mind but they can’t read or write. And so that’s our insight on that. I respect that. Some people have different, you have different
views. I’ve read some things. It’s like, Eh, I don’t know. We just kind of pretty comfortable with the
notion that they can’t read our minds. And I think as you, as you talked about fillers,
they will try to attack our weak points. They’ll certainly know, they know a lot of
our seeing this stuff that’s happened in the past. God forgives us of our sins and cleanse is
this, doesn’t remember, but these demons know a nor pass and their masters or thrown it
up in front of her. So you know, in this, in this room, given
that, that they know and that they are going to come back, come back to us. Um, you know, what’s, what, what, what’s our
response? What you know, what’s a, which a person’s
response to be or how do we deal with these things? You have to sit back and discern, well, you
know, how’s this attack coming at me? I think a lot of people don’t do that. Well, they take it personal, but if you, if
you can look at and know the weaknesses that you have, you’re going to see how these enemy,
the enemy’s going to try to come in. You can be able to discern and advance the
enemy’s tactics, but it’s come through through the mind, through the thoughts and memories. I just had, I just had a client not long ago. Um, all the stuff got stirred up in the past
and somebody came forward from her past and it stirred up a lot of that. And that was a weak area for her, um, with
fantasy and emotionalism and she’d been delivered of all that. But you know, she had, she had to discern
that that was, that she, she could, she saw how it was exactly coming in at her will and
that, and I think that’s it. I mean, you know, we’ve talked about in different
places, I mean the devils, when they come back and put thoughts in our mind, they can
work through other publishers or other situations, life circumstances and the key thing. However, what happens, whether it’s thoughts
randomly or through other things, other people say or do it at some point it becomes a thought
in our mind and it could be string up memories of the past. And so I think that’s, that’s I think a very
important part of discerning the spirits could people who out, you know, it’s a spiritual
gift that Paul talks about, discerning, were hard to discern. The Holy Spirit I think discern these demon
spirits, kind of see him in the spirit realm to serve them. Doesn’t mean necessarily see physical manifestations
of demons. But you sense that the uh, warfare that’s
coming back at two since the spirit, I mean it’s the, if it’s coming back, it’s there,
you know, it’s, it’s the spirit’s there. It’s putting these thoughts in your mind. Maybe stirring up memories of the past or
putting thoughts in your mind about, you know, fear, fear of the future. But I think that’s what it is in, you know,
my experience, it feels that most people, even though it’s a spiritual gift, most people,
uh, don’t have a real good strong area gifting in the realm of discerning of spirits. Right? They don’t know how to do that. They don’t do that. Well, you believe the same. Yeah, I do believe the same. I think if, you know, a lot of people will
say that too. I don’t, I can’t, I can’t see how they convert. But I think you can, if you, if you sense
how you feel, like if it’s fear, if it’s guilt or if it’s shame as if it’s loneliness or
being a, you start to feel that stuff coming upon you and I, and I think that’s what deliverance
really, how am I gonna sell deliverance. But deliverance, when we drive those spirits
out, you have a greater awareness when they try to come back because they’re not driving
you from the inside anymore. So you do have a better discernment because
they’re not part of your, every day they come back, you’re going to discern them and then
you’re going to respond with, like you said, taking your thoughts captive, covering your
mind with the blood of Jesus Christ, and then shifting what you think about to think about
things that are good, praiseworthy in lovely quickly. I think if you have a goto place to think
about the things with God, then you can stop that from actually coming in with meditation
in action. So you just really need to stop up front. Exactly. I think, and that’s what we’re going to, you
know, that’s generally the tactic or the process that we teach once he gets on a recipe. But it’s like, first of all, you got to discern
it and that’s where you know, think about what you’re thinking about. Capture that thought. Like Paul says, taken a captive to the obedience
of Christ. And so that’s really a lot of what discernment
is. It’s not a super spiritual thing. You got to have some knowledge and some understanding,
but like you say, people discern the emotion. I mean I’m getting these nice people start
feeling angry. But the emotions come from the thoughts. Paul doesn’t say capture, take every emotion
captive. He says, take every thought captive. Think about what you’re thinking about. And so yeah, if it’s anger, you know, or,
and maybe that anger is coming from rejecting a why a minute? Cause I’m fairly felt rejection. I got set free from a spirit of rejection. That’s rejection. So out of that we can, it starts with discerning
and then we have an opportunity to respond. And that’s what we want to talk about now
is a Jr for each of the five temperament types. For some very specific examples, once again,
just just it tastes for each one. Um, how one we encourage the person to respond. Maybe some things to say, you know, and, and
uh, you know, once they’ve got to discern, okay, well now what do I do? How do I, because the whole basis of is resisted
devils, you know, James Four, seven, submit to God, resist these devils. And they will say, well, you’ve got to discern
them first. Can’t fight what you can’t see. And then you got to resist them. So these are just some, some practical examples
of things that we’ve used with clients for each of the five different temperament areas. And because I’m, as I say, the, the advantage
that we have when we do this with folks that we take them through deliverance. We got, they’re done their intake interview,
we know their issues, we know their history, what happened, their mother, their father,
what they were through. And uh, we, we have a sense of what they,
you know, are, we know what they were set free from. So you can tailor very specific examples right
to people, right? So absolutely. That’s how it works. So that’s what we want to do right now is
give you some examples, a brief examples, typical council for like one aspect of each
of the five different temperament types. So the general flow of the process that we
encourage our folks to do is, first of all, we’ve got to capture the thought you’ve got,
like we talked about, identify the emotion that it’s generated, talked about if it’s
anger or something, whatever it is. And then given that I’m mostly, what’s, what’s
the spirit that flaky behind behind it, you know, if they’re feeling angry because they
were rejected, well maybe that, and they’ve had rejection. That’s that spirit of rejection trying to
come back. It’s kind of an art, not a, it’s not a science. It’s just kind of that’s rejected. I’m feeling rejected, you know? And, and then you then part of it, you’ve
gotta work. You’ve got to command that spirit to leave,
right? You’ve got to resist it. And then we encourage folks also to speak
the Ramo orders, have a scripture, have some scriptures that w to speak over the situation
and to encourage them to build up their faith. And, um, so that’s kind of the general flow
that we use. So let’s give some examples for each of this
specific temperament types. Let’s start with a melancholies. Melancholies are characterized by the fact
that they have very active minds, right? They do not shut off. And because of their thinkers, there’s a tendency
to relive the past and can play, replay the replay, the tapes over and over again. So for an example, if, um, then let’s say
they had an abusive parent and get a lot of people, they were abused by their parents,
their mother, their father, and you know, they go through deliverance and they, and
the that’s memory comes back, right? What that the father did and then are feeling
that rejection. We, once again, we encourage them to analyze
the thought to certainly emotion and respond to the spirits can kind of do this as kind
of an example. Yeah. So, so maybe you would say, I’ve, I’ve, I’ve
forgiven and I’ve release judgment against my father and my mother. So you spirit of rejection, you get out of
here and leave me alone in Jesus’s name. I am a daughter of the king and you will leave
me and, and, and, and you will never leave me nor forsake me. So you’re speaking out, you know that you
forgiven, that you’ve dropped the judgments, you’re commanding the spirit to go, and then
you’re making a declaration over yourself about God’s promises. You know his word to you that he will never
leave you and forsake you. And you know, you, and I think it’s good because
you know the enemy always comes in with the lie first. He always comes in with that lie. Yeah. So you’re going to counteract it with absolutely
the truth. Right, exactly. I think, and you know, there’s part of it,
we’re covering all the, it’s like some people don’t want to get off by themselves. You know, it’s like you need to do with 13
seconds later you get off by yourself. Sure. You get a quiet time and do whatever the allies. Okay. That’s what’s happened. And that declaring it like they say the forgiven
their parenting and or whoever it is and that declaration, you know, faith comes by hearing,
I believe in the hearing by the word of God. So these dealt with, you know, these devil? No. When you said send him away, you know, you,
you have the authority to send the boy. Yeah. Yeah. We have authority does, you don’t have to
be a minister, you know, of any kind. We have believers have authority to speak
in San these demons away and so they can do that. And then speaking, the word encourages you
and gives you fee, right? Right. And you’re speaking over the situation in
hers. Once again, there’s other scriptures, other
things, but that’s kind of the general flow. But that’s something we would use for, for
melancholies and as an example. So, um, and once again, just one aspect of
it for the supines. Okay. Well the Supines, you know, they, they usually
guilty the guilty over their past failures, their sins. And that’s often, that’s often an issue with
[inaudible] pines. You know, demons are masters at stirring up
the past memories. So, so the client must be ready to deal with
every this everyday tactic. So, you know, we have, you know, the, the,
the supine where they feel guilt or they feel downtrodden or they feel left out. Um, they would say something like, yes, I
did that, but my father has forgiven me. He’s cleansed me of my sins and he remembers
them no more. You spirit of guilt and shame. You get out of here and you leave me alone
in Jesus’s mighty name. There is no condemnation for those found in
Christ. And I am found in him. And so that, you know, especially with specificity
with a supine, when you speak out that Romans eight one, there is no condemnation in Jesus
Christ. I think that’s a safe place for them to go
where the past can’t get them. You know, it’s, it’s a, it’s a good place
for them to just take that guilt over past failures and know that they’re walking in
a new plane and that pass can’t, that kit plas can’t come up and overtake them. You know, in the, in the Bible it talks about
the Israel lights and how they were walking through the wilderness and the Pharaoh was
the past. He was 800 hundred chariots. Each of the commander in the Lord put, uh,
put, uh, the cloud behind them, right. To keep their past in the dark. And so you just stand on that word, that word
of God to keep that passed back there. Don’t come into agreement with it because
that’s where the lies are. That’s where the darkness is. And just keep pressing forward. Yeah. And the premise exactly. The, you know, speaking the warden declaring
these promises. You know, I believe that when you speak it
out, I believe our solar, shh man responds to them because we know what’s the word and
that will calm your soul. It does condemnation for those in crisis. Those are from the devil. So your spirit of guilt and shame, you get
Outta here and you leave me alone. So that, that’s, that’s one specific tactic
that that can help with that in my favorites scriptures to yeah, it is. I mean, and there’s, we encourage people to
have a lot of scriptures, whatever they’re set free from, have some scriptures that will
help counter that. You know, because you know we talked about
the sword of the spirit, the word of God I did. And part of that is Paul talks about in Ephesians
disorder is to take our stand against the devil’s schemes. And this is a very specific scheme of the
demonic kingdom is to come back. Going back to the house and torment is looking
for an entry point. So the nation is a big one. Yeah. Condemnations queues. They let me use us day and night user, the
brethren the seat and it was a colon. Yeah. And they will. And they’re good at throwing our past before
his past sins. And now like I love the scripture says he
remembers them no more. Amen. God doesn’t remind us of our sins because
he forgets it’s the demonic realm. So that’s part of the discernment that’s happened. So that’s something that works for, for the,
for the supines. Let’s talk about the sanguine group at or
the sanguine temperament tangle sang ones once again, are there the bright sunshiny
folks, they can have mood swings with the highs are highs and the lows are lows and,
but Jim and people are primarily was what can see and they go into a room, the light
it up, they’re outgoing, um, colorful, colorful, like to wear colorful clothes are not into
the grays. And the browns there, they like to call her
full clothes. Um, typically when he was saying when they,
they have, can have a very high need for affection and they can give a lot of affection and they,
and they have that deep need. Your or any of these areas. So sometimes we see with saying woods if they
have, if they have a high need for affection and we’ve had many times with clients or people
that have that high need, if they’re, if they, if they, if they don’t get it met in there
at home, then then they will start looking for, for comfort and 11 all the wrong places. And you know, and this we’re talking married
people here, not necessarily just single people. They will be, they need the attention. They need the attention, they need the love
and a and m. So if for instance, if someone has rejected
them, let’s say a husband or their wife has rejected them and they’re feeling that rejection
and they, they go out, um, the, you know, when they’re tempted to go out and seek out
that love again. So, um, you, you know, one of, one of the
things, given that if that’s the situation we would, we would encourage the, uh, the
sanguine two to respond and do identify that once they get that recognized, that temptation
that’s going on, that need for affection, the goal to respond, meet maybe something
like this. Yeah. Maybe they would say, yes, you know, they
did a band in and reject me, but I have forgiven him and released all judgments. I am a daughter of the king and he has a godly
husband for me. You spirit of self pity or whatever else it
is that you may be discerning that’s trying to attack you. You get out of here and leave me alone in
Jesus’s name. Thank you father, that you will meet all of
my needs out of your glorious riches. You will be my husband Jesus, until chosen
until the chosen one comes into my life. And so you have to transfer quickly. Your need for affection from an outside source
or a worldly placed to the Lord because the Lord will meet that, you know, meet that,
those, those, those people with those high, heavy needs, no person. I mean just had some counseling folks in last
week, both of them saying, and I said, no person’s going to be able to fill that bucket
because it’s a, it’s a big bucket, the of need. But you can get what you can get from people,
but God is going to fill the rest of it. And that’s where you really need to learn
to go to that secret place. And the good thing about sanguine so they
can do that. They can get into that secret place with the
Lord and they can draw upon the love of God. So, but the devil’s, we’ll try to work. Oh yeah, we’ll try to say, well these, okay,
you deserve this. You can go out and do this. And you know, the example you talked about
was kind of like maybe a single person who’d been rejected, but it’s the same way in marriage
companies. It’d be the same sort of thing. You know that you still need that declaration
to see where I’ve forgiven my husband, my smoke, my wife from Germany. Clearly yes cause sang ones, you know, they, they want
to, there’s an entitlement there to where they feel like they need the love, they should
get the love and they should be, you know, the enemy will use that. So to discern that and resist that as well. So, okay. The clerics a fourth group, we’ll look and
they, they’re the ones that are great at getting things done or I’m typically very task oriented,
not so much people oriented for the most part. And um, and they typically have, if their
weakness areas, if you like for them as many times they have a little grace for dealing
with the emotions are weaknesses of others. They will, they can, they can be, we can send
people users to get there to get the job done. And, and, and the good news is they can learn,
I minister to the people in this area, they can learn how to, how to move and, and, and
a display, that kind of empathy. I’m one guy, you know, kind of like fake it
till you make it kind of, kind of approach this like, Hey, do the things in until God,
you know, God, God can change and transform you. But it begins with consciously discerning
the tendency to dismiss or move on when the situation arises. That’s what sometimes they people blow, right
by somebody’s emotions or how they’re feeling or their weaknesses and yes, so they can walk
over to the people hey can, so it’s like you got to discern that, oh man, that’s a weakness. And in the situations we might encourage them
to respond something like this. Oh Lord, help me to see me, to see, see him as you do. Thank you that I have your heart for him,
Lord, and that I will respond to him as you would you spirit of impatience. You get out of here and leave me alone. Thank you lord that you have taken out my
heart of stone and given me a heart of flesh. So that’s, you know, that’s to help you see
people see are the or motion. See, see them for who they are, that they’re
not just, you know, helpers, you know, cause the cleric will attract weaker people because
they’re the leader and weaker people want to be led, but then they get frustrated with
them. So, you know, be careful with that. You don’t want to be saying I am frustrated
or I am impatient. You need to take discern that these things
are coming back and then take authority over them. That’s what it starts with willing hearts. They don’t want to be like, I have had people
like that. They don’t want to be like that. And yeah, and it’s like, but it starts, you
got to discern it. Oh that’s what’s happening. Okay, what do I need to do differently here? And of course they got to retreat the person. Well, yes, great for that repenting, repenting
and kind of go forward. But once again, this is in the war for him
from a just cause that spirit of impatience or whatever it is, trying to come back upon
them. Know, recognize that’s what it is. Especially if you’ve been set free from it
and you send that spirit away. You resistance and you send it away. Amen. All right, let’s look at the fifth temperament. The Flake, Maddix, peacemakers, typically
low energy, stubbornness, mm passiveness or some of the weaknesses that are often associated
with them. And they make them. And because of that, the whole issue of a
spirit of stubbornness, you know, if they got set free from that, then that, that devil’s
going to try to come back to the house. And they, they just learned by natural, by
their temperament, um, fanatics you’re motivated to cope is to do as little as possible, graded,
ignoring. And if, if the, if the, um, phlegmatic can
discern that and um, see that that’s what’s going on. Maybe if somebody at work and they got a supervisor
who was trying to get them to do something, be clean up her office or do something and,
and they would just, you know, want to dig in. But you know, and you know, they catch that. Say now you know, Mary or whoever’s my supervisor. All right, Lord, help me with this. This is a kind of response. We might encourage them to do something. Yes, thank you lord for setting me free. I am yielded to the Lordship of Jesus in my
life and I recognize that I am under the authority in this office, under their authority in this
office. Mary is my supervisor and I proposed I purpose
to clean up my office or whatever it is that she’s asking you to do as she has asked me
to do you spirit of stubbornness, you get out of here and leave me alone in the name
of Jesus Christ. Lord, I obey this directive as unto you. All right. Hope that gives you kind of a flavor of it,
kind of the, uh, the problem, once again, they’re not a recipes that are just kind of,
um, processes that we use and have used with people. And, and you can start to do this neural life,
you know, resist and discern these things at work and you can discern them, um, then
then, then start to do that. But basically that’s how we do it. And a, it’s powerful as you can measure your
temperament in with spiritual warfare in that realm. It be, it can be pretty powerful. I think so that, you know, that that’s kind
of the main takeaway that I would leave with this thing is like, you know, there’s some
generic spiritual warfare things that work, but there’s a Jew, you know, because they
just work, you know, and approaches to things. But, uh, binding in deliverance is spiritual
warfare. But for your own personal warfare, knowing
your temperament can help you. And we try and give you some specific examples. Any thing else, you want it as you wore and
you become familiar with the staff and your, you know, your weaknesses, uh, that, that,
that God will heal, convict you, he’ll bring you through it and you don’t, you’re not stuck
with all that old temperament. You know, you’re, you’re, you’re, you’re going
to raise them up to be more like Jesus Christ. So you know, you can be transformed by the
renewing of your mind. Exactly. Yeah. There’s change there. You don’t have those chains. Yeah, exactly. So, well, we hope you’ve enjoyed this. Um, this podcast. We’d love to hear from you. Um, your, your feedback. You send us an email, let us know why the
