I think one of the most annoying things in this world, is a person who's committed to being dishonest. More so, these folks have no relationship with the truth and would tell a lie at any opportunity.
I know of many folks that seem to be plagued with this seemingly incurable disease. What I have discovered is that compulsive liars, for the most part, don't really want to tell lies. In fact sometimes when he/she tells a lie, he/she questions themselves, as to why they did what they did.
Now I am aware that this may sound strange to you but let me explain. You see my friend lying is not a thing but a personality, yes! You read right. Compulsive liars are possessed with a lying spirit whom they become a host to.
This is important to note because you could spend the rest of your life fighting a person instead of the spirit that is the source of the lying problem. Many of you right now can identify with what I am writing about as it relates to liars in your life. As usual, let's look at scripture to validate my findings.
"21 And there came forth a spirit, and stood before the Lord, and said, I will persuade him.
22 And the Lord said unto him, Wherewith? And he said, I will go forth, and I will be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets. And he said, Thou shalt persuade him, and also prevail: go forth and do so.
23 Now, therefore, behold, the Lord hath put a lying spirit in the mouth of all these thy prophets, and the Lord hath spoken evil concerning thee" 1 Kings 22:21-23.
So, as you would have read lying is not a thing, this is what the enemy would want you to believe so that there would be a division between you and that person who's telling lies. Instead, you are dealing with a spirit that has a stronghold on the individual who is actually a slave to this lying spirit. (My God!)
Now that we have identified the source of whom you know to be a puppet to a lying spirit, you must now shift your prayer and discontinue praying against that person and begin praying against that spirit that has a stronghold on that person. In fact ask God by the power of the blood of Jesus Christ to remove this lying spirit from your friend, family member or even yourself and replace it with his Spirit of truth, which is his Holy Spirit, who is responsible for guiding us into all truth.
