Release from enmity Enmity means extreme bitterness with grudge, anger, hatred, jealousy. God hates this. Because all he wants is “love”. God loves us so much. In the same way we should love our neighbor as we love God. This enmity is acting against this perfect quality of God as opposed to that love. So enmity should be completely abandoned. Why God hates enmity is because enmity causes immense harm to man. Pushes to death. casts into hell. Apart from that, they are a tool in the hands of the enemy Satan to harm many.

Those who kill babies because of nosebleeds. The killers of gray-headed old men are beyond our expectations. There are no murderers who prey on young female children for no good reason. All this is due to the enmity which is the nature of Satan in the heart. Therefore, as long as there is enmity in the heart, man cannot approach God. In this way man does things that are not far from God. But this sin has also spread in the Christian community.
It is very sad that God’s children who have accepted the loving ‘Jesus’ as their personal savior have this bad character, this enmity works between believer-believer, servant-servant, believer-servant, servant-believer. Many Christian families also seem to have lost God’s blessings because of this enmity between husband and wife, parents, siblings, and sisters. This enmity drains the blessing. Therefore, if you remember that while you are offering an offering to your brother, leave your offering there before the altar and go and reconcile with your brother. Then come and offer your offering. (Matthew 5:23-24) The Lord told us how soon we should be freed from the enmity. That’s how Peter came to him and said, Lord! If my brother has wronged me, how many times should I forgive him? I asked if it was seven marula mattuga. Jesus said to him. Seven changes are not enough. I am telling you that it is like seventy years of age. (Matthew 18:21-23) The Lord told how important it is to ‘forgive’ to be released from enmity. The above two verses also show how quickly one should be freed from the enmity that enters the heart of man. So if this sin is not removed immediately it will cause serious damage.

2. Destabilization of hostilities.
Enmity creates instability (Genesis 4:12). Cain was hostile to his younger brother Abel, who offered the best offerings. Because his own brother. I was cursed by God and rebelled as a traitor.
3. Enmity brings destruction.
(Genesis 13:7) – Abraham’s herdsmen and Lot’s herdsmen quarreled. But Abraham, who did not want this feud to continue like this, said that if you go to the right side, you will go to the left side, and if you go to the left side, you will go to the right side. Lott seems to have no reaction to this feud. So Lot, who lived the religion of those people who did not fear God, went on his journey to Sodom and Gomorrah, which appeared beautiful to his eyes, and finally brought destruction. He appears to us in a state where everything he has is destroyed.

The reason for that was because she grumbled with enmity against Moses . Miriam’s animosity towards Moses caused all the Israelites to travel to Canaan.
5. Enmity leads to death.
(1 Samuel 16:14-23) Saul stopped enmity against David, who saved him from the hands of his enemies by helping him and killing him with a spear ’21’ times! After trying to do it, I ended up committing suicide and dying. Because enmity is a transgression of the commandment. That is murder in God’s sight (1 John 3:16). Enmity is a liar (1 John 4:20). They grieve the Holy Spirit. (Ephesians 4:29-30). So they will have the spirit of death. (1 John 3:14). In the same way, when seen in the New Testament, Iscariot Judas died as an enemy of the Lord Jesus along with those who were enemies of the “Lord Jesus”. Therefore, children of God should completely abandon this enmity. Due to this enmity man is losing earthly and spiritual blessings. But it does not come together. So make sure that there is no enmity in your mind towards any man.Get the love poured into your heart by the Holy Spirit and move forward. May the Lord grant you such grace Amen.
