Confronting The Deaf and Dump Spirit in Relationships and Marriage. Sally is engaged to George. They are so much in love or so they thought! They are planning to get married soon, however, Sally began to notice that George hardly wants to talk. She did all the talking on the phone while George simply listens. Sally was happy because she felt she was getting married to a perfect gentleman and would easily have her ways and excesses sponsored without much drama! 

Eventually, they got married and discovered that the package is a two-edged sword. George does not talk much and also would not listen! He does what he wants to do, and his stubbornness has no second part! 

Sally became both the talker and the listener and she eventually became frustrated! 

The reality is that relationship can go on a little bit without communication but marriage cannot survive without good communication! 

Confronting The Deaf and Dump Spirit

I call the cause of this anomaly in relationships and marriage, a deaf and dumb spirit. Pastor! Which one is this again?

Sometimes, the husband takes the deaf part while the wife takes the dump part, or one spouse takes both. Whichever way, the end result is mega frustration and can truncate a good love story. 

Take a look at the scripture:

Mar 9:20, 25 (AMPC) [20]
So they brought [the boy] to Him, and when the spirit saw Him, at once it completely convulsed the boy, and he FELL TO THE GROUND and kept rolling about, foaming [at the mouth]. 

The goal of the spirit is to keep your relationship or marriage to the ground!  Your marriage will not be grounded in Jesus’ name! 

Jesus has to address that spirit directly!

[25] But when Jesus noticed that a crowd [of people] came running together, He rebuked the unclean spirit, saying to it, YOU DUMB AND DEAF SPIRIT, I charge you to come out of him and never go into him again.

Here Jesus addressed the spirit as dump and deaf spirit.

Confronting The Deaf and Dump Spirit

I am not saying your spouse is demonized if he or she is quiet or does not talk, but I am showing how this spirit can operate in a relationship or marriage! 

Your lover hardly talks.

Your spouse never listens.

Your spouse hardly talks. 

Sometimes, we blame this on temperaments! 

But you know what, when you are in love, you talk! 

When the marriage has near zero communication, that marriage is dying!

Refuse the operations of that spirit in your relationship and marriage and start Confronting The Deaf and Dump Spirit!

Be friends with each other. Talk about everything and anything! The moment you internalize and keep secrets, you open the door. So talk and talk! Be your spouse’s fan and keep talking! 

There are many aspects to this, and I will continue tomorrow. Use Prayers on this topic on REVIVE Day 12 which you can find below! 

Have a great day!
