Personally, I am afraid for the next generation of Christians in Nigeria and Africa as a whole. I think, the conviction and passion the Christians of the old had are gradually been thrown into the trash can before our very eyes.
Any devil can confuse and convert some Christians the moment they start doing giveaways. The easiest way to get them is to give them money and smartphones. Suddenly, a “fire brand” believer will become an attack dog for an agent of the devil.
I read Elder Timothy Ofoegbu’s op-ed and was shocked to see Christians defend someone that mocks God daily. Some Christians no longer know the difference between evil and good, agent of the devil and agent of God. Just share money and other materials stuff and they will abandon their faith.
When you see a genuine minister of God you should know. There should be an inner witness showing you the genuineness of the person.
Conversely, when you see a false prophet, you should know. There must be an inner nudging telling you that this man or woman is an agent of the devil.
Unfortunately, once the person begins to throw money around on the social media or in their gathering, some people will loose their sense of reasoning.
I know that there is poverty in the land. But you shouldn’t throw away your salvation on the altar of material things given by an agent of the devil.
Jesus said, “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” Mark 8:36.
I am a strong believer in success and prosperity. But I always emphasize that we must not sell our souls on the process of making money. I usually say that I want to make the kind of money that will not take sleep away from my eyes at the middle of the night.
I have had what looks like opportunity to make millions, but I didn’t even look at it twice because it was ungodly. Don’t allow any agent of the devil to buy your salvation with money or smartphone. Don’t call evil good because the person usually give you money.
While on a particular social media platform, I saw an advert of a lady that was selling bracelets and waist beads that will help ladies to attract RICH MEN, and ladies from different parts of the nation were rushing to buy the demonic products. I am sure that at least, fifty percent of her customers are young Christians.
Dear young Christian, there is a difference between good and evil. When the devil came to tempt Jesus in the wilderness, Jesus said to him; “…Away with you, Satan! For it is written, You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only you shall serve.’ ” Then the devil left Him, and behold, angels came and ministered to Him.” Matthew 4:10-11.
You cannot wear occultic beads on your waist and lift up your hands to worship God. You cannot serve two masters at the same time. You have to choose one. If you want to be a genuine Christian, you must get rid of idolatry and occultism.
I also believe that a lady that wants to wear charms to attract rich men is lazy. God created you to fulfill an enviable destiny on earth, but because of laziness you want to become a sex toy to men in order to buy smartphone and cruise around in expensive cars! Wake up!
Beware of False Prophets
Jesus warned us before He went back to the heaven. He said, “Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. But he who endures to the end shall be saved.” Matthew 24:11-13.
Many will quote Bibles to deceive you. Many agents of darkness will see real visions for you. But it takes spiritual alertness to know who is genuine.
For days a fortune teller followed Paul and his ministers around, saying; “These men are the servants of the Most High God, who proclaim to us the way of salvation.” Acts 16:17.
Did she lie? Not at all. But was she a genuine seer? Not at all. She was an agent of the devil who was afraid that Paul would cast out the demon that was using her. She decided to use sweet tongue to buy him over. But this happend:
“But Paul, greatly annoyed, turned and said to the spirit, “I command you in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her.” And he came out that very hour. But when her masters saw that their hope of profit was gone, they seized Paul and Silas and dragged them into the marketplace to the authorities.” Acts 16:18-19.
The fortune telling or “prophecy” was a business. She was very popular in that city and her master made great fortunes through her demonic assignment.
Stop running after men of God and start running after God. Stop buying demonic bracelets and beads to attract men or make money. Know God by yourself. Make the Bible your number one companion.
Don’t be a spiritual infant forever. Grow up. Know the difference between good and evil. How can someone say that she is of the devil and you are buying his or her products? Who bewitched you? Wake up from slumber!
Paul said, “As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding in it with thanksgiving.” Colossians 2:6-7.
Apostle John wrote: “God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” John 4:24.
It is time to wake up from slumber! Wake up! Know God by yourself!!
Jesus said: “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” Matthew 6:33.
Brother Jude warned us thus: “For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.” Jude 1:4.
This is the end time. Many things will happen. Only those who know God for themselves will sail through. Only those who know God personally will overcome. Don’t forget that any moment from now, Jesus will come to take the saints to heaven.
Wisdom is profitable to direct!
If you want to recieve Jesus into your heart, say this short prayer and believe it from your heart. Lord Jesus, I belive that you died to rescue me from damnation. Come into my heart and save me. I declare today that You are my Lord and personal saviour. I am saved. I am born again. Thank you Jesus. Amen.
