Recently I have received so many messages from friends about lying

accusations and spiritual attacks. It seems that as people are identifying their purpose

and making strides towards their destiny, the enemy is creating unnecessary conflict

and distraction. These slanderous attacks and accusations flow from the arsenal of hell.

It is sad to say but they often come from other people in the body of Christ that should

know better.

One particularly ugly manifestation of a spiritual attack is slander. I have seen

leaders with a Saul spirit assassinate the character of an emerging leader. They often

do it in the form of a warning to someone else. Typically, they are simply spreading

something that they have heard and they do not take the time to discuss it with the

person involved. These types of rumors also flow freely from believers towards

churches, ministries, and preachers that they have never met or encountered. Far too

often, one Christian is accusing a fellow believer without ever bringing the unproven

issue to that person. How do we avoid this trap? The Bible is very clear on how we

should handle issues with each other.

Now if your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault between you

and him alone. If he listens to you, you have gained your brother. Matthew 18:15

If an issue arises, it should be communicated openly and honestly with the person


Slander is a high level of character assassination that is purposeful and evil. It is

designed to abort someone’s assignment and diminish their influence. There is a

supernatural level of warfare that occurs and releases slanderous spirits. They operate

through hidden whispers and ungodly proclamation. How should you handle a lie or evil


It is vital that you quickly identify the lies, persecution and whispers as a spiritual

attack. Every person who ever steps out to take a risk in faith faces these types of

adversities. Attacks and accusations can appear to be devastating to the human mind

but we must dig deep and remember that it is God who fights our battles!

The Lord shall fight for you, while you hold your peace. Exodus 14:14

1. Identify the source.

You are not wrestling against a person, but the enemy. He is the one that

is motivating the lies. Do not make the mistake of getting drawn into an offense.

For our fight is not against flesh and blood, but against principalities,

against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, and against

spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:12

2. Stay in the arena of the spirit.

This is a key time for you to use your spiritual weapons. Bind the enemy

and release strong victory proclamations! Pray in the spirit—when you pray in other

tongues you are exiting the earth realm and entering the spirit realm! This is one of the

most vital things that you must do during a season of lies and whispers.

I say then, walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.


3. Refuse to enter the realm of the flesh.

One of the primary purposes of these types of battles is to make you

weary and get you into the flesh. When you are in the flesh you are outside of grace.

You are fighting in your own strength and entertaining frustration. The enemy knows

that if he can pull you out from under the shadow of The Almighty then he can vanquish

you. You must make a concerted effort to stay rooted in The Father. It is an opportunity

to grow and allow yourself to depend more on Him.

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. Psalm 91:1

4. Don’t allow the lies to take root in your soul.

If you have been praying, seeking and listening then you have a fairly

good idea of who God has called you to be! Get out those prophecies, your prayer

journal and remind yourself of what The Lord has said!

God is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man, that He should repent.

Has He spoken, and will He not do it? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good? Numbers 23:19

5. Let you character speak!

The fruit of your life will always outlive a lie. Godly character is the

greatest defense.

A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good things.

And an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things. Matthew 12:35

The bottom line is this; you fight and win in the spirit! Keep your eyes on what

Jesus has already said about you and stay rooted in godly character through this

season. Jesus faced character assaults. Paul was talked about and maligned. Every

champion faces opposition. You must keep your heart pure and rooted in The Father.

This is but a passing moment. Your character and your purity will outlast the lies

Thank you for share this blog!

One of the primary differences between a revival HUB and a traditional church mindset is the territorial mandate. Most traditional local churches are primarily focused on the growth and maintenance of their own body. A Revival HUB has a Kingdom mandate that is focused on kingdom equipping and exploits within a region.

Founder of Elijah List


Men and women, such as Ryan and Joy LeStrange, have been trained by the Lord and fully released for THIS HOUR, and the Church most needs their leadership, wisdom and discernment. 


Norvel Hayes Ministries

I have known Ryan LeStrange for over twenty years, since he first came to attend New Life Bible College.  At that time he distinguished himself by his diligence in seeking the things of God.  We were able to observe his giftings continue to develop when after graduation he became the Administrator of our Bible College and continued to work for us in various capacities before God moved him on to plant his own ministry and follow the vision that God gave him. We have been blessed to see how God has used him to bring His Word and power around the world. He has a strong foundation in the Word of God and the power of the Holy Spirit to back it up.  He is also a man of great character and integrity who will not compromise his values for success or because of the opinion of men.


Author of "Prophetic Evangelism" & "I Am Your Sign"

We are entering into a reformation period in the church that, I believe will gloriously surpass that of 500 years ago with Martin Luther. There is a Divine shift coming to our current expression of Christianity and I'm convinced that Ryan LeStrange has been raised up as a strategic voice to prophetically speak into this radical recalibration and equip the Body of Christ to stand as a supernatural catalyst in these crucial times.

Dr. Ryan LeStrange is an anointed Apostle and Prophet whom God has raised up and equipped to teach that the first two ministries given in the five fold list are foundational to the Church becoming all that God wants her to be. I have been personally blessed to see the Holy Spirit impart His anointing and giftings to hundreds of ministers, both young and old.  A host of these divinely anointed ministers are functioning in full faith and fruit in this harvest, reaping souls for the Kingdom and Dr. LeStrange is one of them.
