Fury is the unrestrained or the violently angry actions of a person, divinity, or the elements. When fury becomes a human stronghold it rears its ugly head in retaliation to a perceived offense. At that point fury demands attention and takes uncontrollable action against a cause, a person, a community, or anything in its way.
Threats and manipulation may announce the oncoming fury that builds up in a host as it continues to obtain leverage through fear tactics. If the threats and manipulation are appeased fury gains a foothold that reinforces its right to the host. If fury gains a foothold, it can lay dormant for months and even years. Fear can reign in its vicinity. Eventual loss is inevitable.
If fury sets in, irritability, irrationality, violence, tantrums, selfish pride, vanity, revenge, and any number of strongholds can attach themselves to it or bring it on. The host abandons reason to this emotional, demonic stronghold. Murder is possible.
Fury sets a fire in motion that may never be quenched before it destroys. God reserves the right to judge. He does not deal lightly with fury in anyone.
He will cut off the spirit [of pride and fury] of princes; He is terrible to the [ungodly] kings of the earth. –Psalm 76:12
1. Negotiate and compromise. If a person’s anger is irrational or unreasonable, allow time and wisdom to bring calmness before negotiations or compromise begin.
James 4:1-2 What causes quarrels and what causes fights among you? Is it not this, that your passions are at war within you? 2 You desire and do not have, so you murder. You covet and cannot obtain, so you fight and quarrel. You do not have, because you do not ask.
2. Watch out for the warning signs of impending fury. Threats, irrationality, offense, selfishness, unrighteousness, sarcasm, raised and demanding voice, and manipulation may come first.
Proverbs 22:8 Whoever plants injustice will harvest trouble, and this weapon of his own fury will be destroyed.
Psalm 37:27 Avoid evil, do good, and live forever
3. Ask God for discernment and wisdom in handling this stronghold. Never let fear or denial take over your thinking.
Proverbs 4:6 Forsake not [Wisdom], and she will keep, defend, and protect you; love her, and she will guard you.
Psalm 19:13 Keep me from sinning. Do not let anyone gain control over me. Then I will be blameless, and I will be free from any great offense.
4. Avoid God’s fury. Make sure your name is written in the Lambs Book of Life. Do not follow any religion that distorts the word of God.
Revelation 20:14-15 Then Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire. 15 And if anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.
Revelation 22:19 and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book.
5. Repent, confess, and forgive. If you have been the victim of this stronghold, release your fear or anguish to God for his forgiveness and/or judgment. If you have been the host of this stronghold, release your sin to God for forgiveness. Forgive others.
Proverbs 17:9 Whoever forgives an offense seeks love, but whoever keeps bringing up the issue separates the closest of friends.
Proverbs 28:13 He who covers his transgressions will not prosper, but whoever confesses and forsakes his sins will obtain mercy.
