I Have Been Sensing Jealousy

Hi Pastor Vitale,
I have a few questions. I have been sensing jealousy in the spirit for a while now. I had always thought it was XXX's sister, now that it was brought to light the situation with XXX, could it have been her? I cannot see her being anywhere near jealous of me now but then again I did not see the situation you revealed to me coming either. I am still praying about if it was a thought from my mind and that it be exposed. I do not want any enemies here, we have enough in this world against us.
Thank you Pastor Vitale for everything.
Pastor Vitale's response:
It could be XXX, but it could also be Christ in you perceiving jealousy in your Old Man.
If I had to guess which of the two of you it was most likely to be, my first choice would be you, since I cannot see any reason why XXX might be jealous of you.
In any event, if it is Christ in you observing jealousy in your Old Man, this is a very exciting breakthrough for you. This is the reality of sanctification, which means separation. It is not readily known in the Church, but the true sanctification is the separation of the New Man from the Old man, and the ONLY proof of this is the warfare that then begins between the two.
This is the beginning, and the spiritual reality, of the wars and rumours of wars that Jesus told us about. The internalized Christ Jesus will war against the Carnal Mind in each individual that He is “sanctified” in, which warfare (which is of long duration) will ultimately result in the cessation of sin (the paralyzation of the sin nature) and the onset of immortality, in the flesh, right here in the earth.
God bless you,
Sincerely in Christ,
