Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.

1 Corinthians 4:2

 

To encircle the enemy is to give the enemy no option and to wipe him out. Your enemy will regret invading your space when you use this strategy. Today, disloyalty, treachery, confusion, forgetfulness, have invaded the church. These enemies have come to take away love, unity and harmony, which are needed to build churches. These enemies are those who are disloyal, those who forget, those who leave you, those who pretend, those who accuse and those who are dangerous sons. It is time to encircle these characters and give them no more options to operate within our church space.

How can you encircle the enemies of unity and loyalty? You can encircle the enemy by repeatedly teaching on loyalty and disloyalty. Teach it on Sundays and teach it on any day possible! Encircle the enemy of disloyalty by teaching against it in large conferences, in medium-sized meetings, in small groups, and even to individuals. Encircle the enemy of disloyalty by teaching against disloyalty yourself, or by inviting others to teach on them. You can even ask disloyal people to teach sessions on loyalty. This sometimes causes the person to self-correct.

Encircle the enemy of disloyalty by filling your church with books, videos, documentaries etc. that fight against disloyalty. Encircle the enemy of disloyalty and crush disloyalty by sacking rebellious people. The enemy of disloyalty will not flourish when you take such measures. He will be surrounded, encircled, crushed and eliminated.
