We must take caution else we become the devils fools!
I was usually desperate to hear a man of God speak about me, see into my future and prophecy about it; but somehow it never happened. The church I grew up in had visiting pastors that conducted revival services for the church. During the course of these services, I would see these men of God call out people and lay hands on them but somehow, I always got skipped. So I had this feeling that there was something wrong with me. Fast forward years later after I had gotten over that desperation and actually grew more in Christ, I get called out in a church I visited for the first time.
Few Sundays ago, I and my sister visited a church and we had this strange experience. Far into the service while prayers were on going, we heard the man of God walking toward our direction since he spoke into a mic. So I opened my eyes! I would also assume that those around that parameter did the same if not the whole church. Then he pointed towards me and my sister and said we should come to the altar. I was stunned, confused and began questioning the mini drama that was unfolding. Anyways, we obeyed and went to the alter. He said certain things which were somewhat true but to me vague. Then he went on to lay his hands on both of our heads and prayed for us but I suddenly became so grieved in my spirit.
Why was I grieved? Maybe because my spirit just did not agree with something. I would definitely not tempt myself by making allegations of who has the spirit of God and who doesn’t. I am no judge of that but the bible admonishes me in 1John 4:1, not to believe all spirit but test them.
After the whole service, I laid hands on my self and sincerely prayed over my life and equally interceded big sister 1Jhn 4:4. I believe that there are lessons that accompany every life journey! So hear me out!
We are more vulnerable in our desperate state so be careful and alert! Many people are so desperate to hear from men of God these days that they don’t hear that God is speaking to them directly or through other things or people they may consider ‘foolish or unwise’. Worse still, this African recession coupled with bad and corrupt governance isn’t making the situation any easier. Many therefore end up in the hands of fake pastors or prophets that falsely promise the worlds riches to desperate congregants.
In our African society, I see and hear about strange miracles from ‘powerful’ men of God. For example, some men of God ask their member to drink petrol that miraculously turned into sweet wine or water, some spray insecticide on members as healing remedy, some touch members in private areas, attempting to walk on sea, selling the ‘blood of Jesus’ and anointed water at a very high price; just to name a few. Worse still, I see people travel thousands of miles in search of a miracle they never get free of charge. I see many men of God are beginning to turn the church into a business ground because they know how desperate and gullible people can be.
Some of these so called ‘men of God’ are destiny destroyers, home wreckers, in fact, the devils employees. This definitely applies to many other places around the world! Religion now kills people more than it claims to heal.
No doubt there are genuine men of God out there. But unless one learns to seek the face of God first before seeking for miracles, the person easily set themselves up for disappointment.
