1 Samuel 17:28 “And Eliab his eldest brother heard when he spake unto the men; and Eliab’s anger was kindled against David, and he said, Why camest thou down hither? and with whom hast thou left those few sheep in the wilderness? I know thy pride, and the naughtiness of thine heart; for thou art come down that thou mightest see the battle.”

In the critical battles of life, a group of people you must watch out for are the “Eliabs”. You can’t do anything about them, they’ll naturally show up once you announce your dream, so expect them.

The sad thing about the Eliabs however is that, many times they’re your superiors. They seem to have more experience and training than you. They seem to be better qualified than you but they’re just Eliabs!

Many people respect them because they seem to know what they’re doing. Most times their advice look very authentic and logical, often with a touch of genius.

One of the interpretations of the name Eliab from the Hebrew is “the god-like one”. The truth is that they may be god-like and their advice might also look as such but they’re not God! You must never forget that.

Don’t let them replace God in your life. Their voices must not be stronger than the voice of the Almighty God in your life.

Eliab is a spirit that acts like God in order to stagnate or dissuade us from our God given vision and assignment. The Eliab spirit uses reason, logic and experience against people. You can however know it is Eliab because the underlining statement will be full of malice, envy and wrath.

I don’t think there should be any problems if someone say he has a dream. If you cannot support him why become angry and work towards stopping him?

We can see the manifestation of the Eliab spirit severally in the Bible.

Genesis 37:19 “And they said one to another, Behold, this dreamer cometh.”
