"And I saw, and this is the Son of God," he said. 1 Corinthians 1:34
One of the most powerful weapons used by the adversary to perplex and destroy a child of God is doubt. A feeling of uncertainty or lack of conviction regarding anything is referred to as doubt. Normally, uncertainty does not appear until you have been given information or instruction regarding something. When you know what the Bible says about a subject, but something else is pushing a contrasting opinion in your mind, suggesting that your knowledge of that commandment isn't perfect, that there is a better way to handle such matters, you can be sure it's the spirit of doubt from the pit of hell at work.
This spirit is the bestselling author of confusion with millions of years of expertise in the business, despite the fact that its recommendations are nuanced and its arguments frequently sound plausible.
The first stage of its strategy is to create confusion in a person's head; after that, it manipulates their prey into making a mistake and then stands back to see how they handle the consequences. Doubt is such a lethal weapon that it has been used by the devil to bring down great men and women of God throughout history.
Some people do not consider doubt to be a bad thing. Doubt is the polar opposite of faith, because the Bible states that no one can please God without faith. As a result, it indicates that anything done in doubt is a sin against God.
John the Baptist is a prime example of a great prophet who succumbed to unbelief. "The following day John seeth Jesus coming vnto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, who taketh away the sin of the world," the Bible states in John 1:29-30. This is the one of whom I spoke when I said, "After me comes a man who is preferred before me: for he was before me."
The great prophet was fully aware of the heavenly instruction he received in John 1:33-34. He was forceful in his statements, sure of what he needed to do, and modest in his awareness of his relationship with Jesus. He made it plain to his audience that it was all about Jesus and not about him.
He made it obvious that he needed to shrink in order for the Lord Jesus to grow. However, when John was in prison, the spirit of doubt struck shortly after these forceful affirmations. He sent Jesus a pitiful message to confirm whether or not Jesus was the messiah. The great prophet questioned his own existence in its entirety (Matthew 11:2-6).
