Offenses hurt our vital human relationships, which in turn adversely affect the wellbeing of our heart and soul.

  1. In order to understand fully what I am about to teach, we must first go back to look at how God shaped or configured us to function.

In Genesis 2:18 God said, ” It is NOT GOOD FOR MAN TO BE ALONE; I will make him a helper suitable for him.”

So being ALONE, SEPARATED/DISCONNECTED from others, SOLITARY, SOLO, BY YOURSELF is an EVIL that works against your makeup!

So God’s SOLUTION for being alone, by yourself, disconnected was to give man a SUITABLE HELPER, to adapt to his need for CONNECTION, RELATIONSHIP, TOGETHERNESS. God made woman who had the same nature as man, so that she could connect with him physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. And in order to draw or attract them to each other, God placed in them the desire to love and be loved, valued, accepted, wanted or needed, cherished and approved. And God also connected them in a relationship, a family. In this way, their spiritual, emotional, mental and physical makeup would be fulfilled.

That’s why we all crave affection and relationship. We desire to be known and accepted and loved for who we really are deep inside us. And we also long to know others, so that we connect with them, not just superficially, but deeply. BECAUSE THE SOUL PROSPERS OR IS AT ITS BEST ONLY IN A MEANINGFUL AND FULFILLING CONNECTION OR RELATIONSHIP.

  1. The enemy understands this truth about your makeup. He knows that your soul’s efficiency is negatively impacted outside of loving, understanding and cherishing relationships. So he’s constantly working to pull you apart from others, disconnect you from loved ones. He does this wherever there are two or more people connected – family, church, business/work place, etc And not only at the individual level, but also among nations.
    He does that by introducing OFFENSES.

So the next time an offense is coming in, know who is at work and what he wants to achieve.


Your spiritual (soul and heart) wellbeing is intricately connected to your physical wellbeing. You can only be as healthy or prosperous as your heart and soul are.
The Bible tells us:
“Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in every way and [that your body] may keep well, even as [I know] your soul keeps well and prospers.”
(3John 2).

One VIRUS that shatters your spiritual (heart and soul) and physical health or wellbeing is called OFFENSES! OFFENSES kill.
OFFENSES target the very relationships, connections that God has designed for the prosperity of your heart and soul…

OFFENSES come to stop the soul from flourishing by causing separations, dis-unity, disconnection. The end game is always to plunge the soul into the darkness of LONELINESS, GRIEF from loss of vital relationships, DEPRESSION, BROKENHEART from hurts. Offenses really hurt, not only your vital relationships, but also your heart and soul.

In the next post, we shall be looking at God’s wisdom and design for the protection of our spiritual and physical wellbeing from the attack of offenses.

It’s my prayer that God’s Spirit would prosper you – spirit, soul and body. In Jesus’ Name.
