Beware the Miriam Spirit’s Masqueraded Murmurs

by | Nov 10, 2021 | Blogs, The Plumb Line

Miriam was a prophetess but she didn’t always use her mouth to prophesy the song of the Lord. No, she used her anointed mouth to murmur to Aaron about her little brother Moses. Apparently, Aaron joined in but God ultimately held Miriam responsible. That tells me she was likely either the one who initiated it or the one who wouldn’t let it go.

“Now Miriam and Aaron spoke against Moses because of the Cushite woman whom he had married (for he had married a Cushite woman); and they said, ‘Has the Lord really spoken only through Moses? Has He not spoken also through us?’ And the Lord heard it” (Num. 12:1-2, AMP).

Catch that. Miriam fell prey to a murmuring spirit—and the Lord heard it. (Of course, the Lord hears everything!) We’ll get back to that in a minute. First, let’s take a deeper look at what it means to murmur and why the murmuring spirit has now become synonymous in many spiritual warfare camps with a Miriam spirit.
What is a Murmuring Spirit?

A murmur is a half-suppressed or muttered complaint, according to Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary. People don’t murmur compliments; they murmur complaints. In fact, the Bible groups murmured with complaining and grumbling.

Murmuring is voicing a grievance or a gripe. Murmuring is akin to bellyaching and crabbing. It’s essentially whining and moaning about something you don’t like—and usually not to the person who has any authority to do anything about it. It’s an “under your breath behind someone’s back” complaint.

A murmuring spirit then influences people to complain in disapproval. Instead of praying for a leader, they protest against them. Instead of lifting up the leader’s arms in the midst of the battle, they burden them with more warfare because of the witchcraft their devilish wisdom releases against their minds.
