I have added a new “ite” to the list from my studies. Being that the truth of Gideon is highlighted for the upcoming Hebrew New Year, we would do well to understand the Midianites.
Why does God say we must DISPOSES the “ITES”?
Well 👉🏼 let’s dig into who they are….
But 1st ☝🏼 let’s look at the definition of DISPOSES
to dis·pose (s)
- To get rid of, throw away, to give or sell to someone else.
👉🏼 cast out (deliverance anyone…oh look…it’s a real thing)
get rid of
do away with
The “ite’s” are the spirit dwellers of the “low land”. Red your Bible. It’s clear as day.
We however, are RAISED UP WITH CHRIST JESUS IN HEAVENLY PLACES!
🔥 WE WAR FROM THIS VANTAGE POINT
🔥 NOT ON THE GROUND
🔥 NOT IN THE FLESH
🔥 BUT IN THE SPIRIT
So….who are the “ite’s”
• Midianites 👉🏼 means strife, or a place of judgement. The accusers of the brethren. They take all they can. Your identity, your inheritance, your peace. This kind speaks word curses over your life. They torment you. They’re literally compared to a dripping faucet. Think Chinese water torture. Drip, drip, drip. However, the Midianites can only take from you, because we’ve allowed it. A Midianite spirit must be given legal access by us erecting idols in our life. They have access because we’ve placed something (or someone) above God. If left unchecked they will take everything, and you will be left spiritually bankrupt. They are compared in scripture to “a swarm of locusts”.
• Hittites – means terror – your FEAR. The Lord did not give us the spirit of fear! Are you walking in POWER – LOVE – AND A SOUND MIND??
• Girgashites – means dwelling on the clay soil – 👉🏼 OPERATING IN THE FLESH. Are we dwelling on the lusts of the flesh, not putting on the righteousness of Christ and living by the Spirit??
• Amorites – means “the talkers OR the sayers” – those LOOPED TAPES – the words or thoughts not of God – the lying voices of deception. This includes 👉🏼 the gossipers, the liars, the slanderers! This includes ANY voices speaking contrary to what God says about you.
• Perizzites – means wild fruit/nomad/ wanderer – this is the “homelessness” mentality. This spirit attempts to keep your inheritance from taking root. People operating under this spirit are often moved by every wave of doctrine – they have a need to “belong”. No home. Orphan mentality
• Cannanites – to bring low or subdue – this spirit tries to hold you down. The spirit of heaviness. These are trading spirits. Traditions traded for TRUTH. Lies for Legacy. Breakthrough for breakdown. JOY for sorrow. Gardens for Graves!!
• Hivites – means False Life Giving… speaks life but for selfish gain – these are tent dwellers – pulling you into their tent mentality. Their “team”. They travel in gangs. Provision but for their personal agenda. They preach Christ but for selfish ambition, power, prestige, and a personal platform.
• Jebusites – means the down tramplers – the spirits operating in and through people who try to keep you from the Truth of God. Suppression. Powerlessness. Sadness. Depression. The victim mentality. Poor me.
These “ites” co-mingle. They love mixture. They operate together, rarely traveling alone.
They often sound like YOUR OWN VOICE.
Do NOT be fooled!
THATS NOT YOUR VOICE.
THATS NOT YOUR FATHERS VOICE.
DO NOT COME INTO AGREEMENT WITH THE LIES!
What are these “ITES” trying to keep you from?
The Promise Land 👉🏼 the promises of the land
THE PROMISES OF GOD!
Brooks & Rivers – Washed clean and flowing with The Spirit of God
Milk – The Abundance and Blessings of God
Honey – The Sweet Things of God. Taste and see that He is good!
Olive Oil – The Anointing of God & The Gifts of Holy Spirit
Pomegranates – Good Fruit & Inherited Royalty
Wheat & Barley – The Bread of Life & Total Sustenance
We must come into agreement with HIS GOODNESS! Even when the land is full of giants – FOCUS ON THE PROMISE and just KEEP WALKING! Your Father fights for you and with you! This is your INHERITANCE!!
The dominion mandate – YOU RUN TOWARD THE GIANTS 👉🏼 NOT FROM THEM! RESIST THE ENEMY AND HE MUST FLEE!
HE FLEES 👉🏼 NOT YOU!
HE RUNS AWAY FROM THE HOLY GHOST IN YOU! ⚔️ 🔥
THE COVENANT IS OUR DEED TO THE PROMISED LAND!
AND NO UNCIRCUMCISED (lack of blood covenant) PHILISTINE IS GOING TO KEEP ME FROM IT!
How about you?

Are you drowning in a massive “To-Do” list?
Are you finding yourself tired and worn out with not enough hours in the day?
Has your mind been wracked with fear and worry?
God will give you the grace and strength you need for each moment surrendered unto Him.
Stop fighting the currents and working against the tides.
Surrender each moment of doubt, worry, fear, and control to God, and allow Him to carry you safely where He needs you to go.
Things are never forced with God.

Guard your gates.
All the gates.
Know who you’re coming down off the wall for.
Stop putting yourself in positions where you have to choose between sin or righteousness.
Walking in the spirit.
Stay in your lane.
The spiritual lane.
Leave your lane for no man.
How do you guard your gates?
Let us look to the word….
- The angels guarded the way back to the garden with what?
A flaming sword – THE WORD OF GOD.
- The glory of the Lord is what?
Your rear guard.
(are you creating an environment that cultivates the glory of the Lord?)
- Call upon Holy Spirit.
2 Timothy 1:14
14 Guard the good deposit that was entrusted to you—guard it with the help of the Holy Spirit who lives in us.

Count it ALL Joy … Really?
The cheating spouse
The unfaithful friend
The wayward child
The disrespectful teenager
The cancer diagnosis
The overflowing toilet
The flooded house
The burned down dreams
The cranky kiddos
The crying baby
The brutal summer heat
The long frigid winter cold
The crappy service
The dishonest people
The crashing stock market
The loss of a relationship
The failing health
The impending death
The angry accusers
The rising gas prices
The eviction notice
The hot pavement to sleep
The busted washing machine
The stalled car
The flat tire
The loss of a job
Yes, Michelle, count even ALL those — and so much more as Joy.
I am not sure what is on your list … I am not trying to marginalize your pain with the extremes but simply showing that we all have our own levels or “degrees of 💩” that can toss us about.
Thankfully many of these above are not on my list right now, but some pretty big ones are.
It’s a reminder for me and for you to not let any junk or 💩steal your peace or your joy.
And I can’t think of a better way to tick the devil off and not let him tempt you to lose your biscuits or cool or footing or peace or joy or whatever you may freak out on today or any day, is to simply laugh in his ugly face as you Count it ALL Joy!
“Difficulties are an invaluable opportunity to experience the greatest JOY that you can.”
So, Count it ALL Joy…
—XXOO 😘 Michelle Bollom
Check out the Word 👇🏻
My fellow believers, when it seems as though you are facing nothing but difficulties see it as an invaluable opportunity to experience the greatest joy that you can!
For you know that when your faith is tested it stirs up power within you to endure all things.
And then as your endurance grows even stronger it will release perfection into every part of your being until there is nothing missing and nothing lacking.
And if anyone longs to be wise, ask God for wisdom and he will give it! He won’t see your lack of wisdom as an opportunity to scold you over your failures but he will overwhelm your failures with his generous grace.
Just make sure you ask empowered by confident faith without doubting that you will receive. For the ambivalent person believes one minute and doubts the next.
Being undecided makes you become like the rough seas driven and tossed by the wind. You’re up one minute and tossed down the next.
When you are half-hearted and wavering it leaves you unstable. Can you really expect to receive anything from the Lord when you’re in that condition?
— James 1:2-8 TPT
If your faith remains strong, even while surrounded by life’s difficulties, you will continue to experience the untold blessings of God!
True happiness comes as you pass the test with faith, and receive the victorious crown of life promised to every lover of God!
When you are tempted don’t ever say, “God is tempting me,” for God is incapable of being tempted by evil and he is never the source of temptation.
Instead it is each person’s own desires and thoughts that drag them into evil and lure them away into darkness.
Evil desires give birth to evil actions. And when sin is fully mature it can murder you!
So my friends, don’t be fooled by your own desires!
Every gift God freely gives us is good and perfect, streaming down from the Father of lights, who shines from the heavens with no hidden shadow or darkness and is never subject to change.
God was delighted to give us birth by the truth of his infallible Word so that we would fulfill his chosen destiny for us and become the favorite ones out of all his creation!
— James 1:12-18 TPT
