Understanding Destiny

A person's destiny is known as a place, a person and things that God has prepared for them well in advance of their encounter with them.

Whether you are aware of it or not, you are on one of two destinies and that is you are either on a destiny that was prepared by God or you're on a destiny prepared by Satan.

A destiny prepared by Satan is saturated with people, places and things that have been assigned to you by Satan of course all in an effort to delay, hinder and stop you from ever getting on your God designed destiny. Amazingly, from a surface perspective, Satan's destiny will always appears to be ideal for your life but the more you become tightly woven into his destiny the more you realize you've found yourself in a web of deceit and delay.

I will take it a step further;  you should have been much further in life than you are right now. There are certain things you should have already accomplished at your age. However, this could not happen, neither will it ever happen as long as you are connected to that person, place or thing that you fully well know has been holding you back from "A LIFE OF BETTER".

The best way to prevent anyone from connecting with what was prepared for them by God, is to connect them with what was never a part of their God intended destiny. Hear me today.... That person that you know is wasting you time is in fact delaying you from your destiny, that place that you're sick and tired of is indeed delaying you fro your destiny.... Those things that were given as gifts are all distractions in an effort to continuously delay you from that prepared, place, person and things.

Every person's destiny is filled with set divine appointments and times. For example there is an appointed season to meet your destine mate and a certain time to be married to that assigned mate. Therefore as it relates to divine seasons, divine seasons are  specific divine appointments accompanied with a certain time to accomplish whatever those appointments maybe. Scripture confirms this when it said, "There is a season (appointment) and time for every purpose under the sun" Eccl. 3:1.

Unfortunately, many of you reading this post have allowed your times and seasons to accomplish certain things during the course of your life to expire on you. However, these expirations were only due to spiritual manipulation by Satan in an effort to secure your wrong connections, again, with the intent of delaying you!

If this article is convicting you in your spirit, then here is what I need you to do:

1) Ask God to forgive you for being delayed for whatever reason.

2) Ask God to restore unto you the years the enemy has eaten away from you, Joel 2:25

3) Command Satan to restore unto you seven-fold of all he has stolen, Proverbs 6:30-31.

4) Sincerely ask God to advance you where you should have been at this point and time of your life.


Heavenly Father, please restore us, of the stolen times and season that the Enemy has subtly deprived us of. Father, Just like how you advanced Joseph from the pit to the Palace, David from a sheep keeper to a King and Hanna from a season of depression to a season of joy. Lord we desperately ask you to remove the barriers that have prevented us from becoming current in your divine plan for our lives. We now pray that you supernaturally catapult us to the destiny you originally intended for us in the mighty name of your son Jesus Christ. Amen!

I promise you, God has not forgotten you!

There are so many of you that are challenged to the point of confusion as to when will someone help you!
God has moved upon you greatly in expressing kindness, compassion and meeting the needs of others with the little that you have.

However in spite of your needs and unmet desires, your passion to help and serve others is still alive in you. Nevertheless, this does not dispel the relentless, repetitive thoughts that's trafficking in and out of your mind as to when will God's promises made to you for helping others manifest itself.

Well my friend, God knows your heart and he's quite aware of the challenges of your mind and what appears to be unfair to you. However, his plans for you far exceeds your temporary discomfort. Your obedience in continuing to do what he's impressed upon you to do, even while your needs are seemingly barely being met will in time pan out an immeasurable reward for you. Faithfulness is key!

The lord wants me to not only encourage you today but to remind you of his word which says, "For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which you have shown towards his name, in that you have ministered (served) to the saints, and continue to minister" Hebrews 6:10.

As a reminder to you my friend, the law of temporary dictates that there is a time and season for every purpose under the sun, Eccl 3:1. Those whom you are serving, it is indeed their time and God has chosen you to provide their fruit in their season in spite of you being fruitless. Well, Just as you in your kindness, love, compassion and giving to others in spite of your afflictions and fruitlessness, God almighty has commissioned someone to do likewise towards you in abundance.

The promise of God is clear and it says, "He that gives water to others shall one day be watered himself" Proverbs 11:25. Scripture further advises us of the following, "The eyes of all wait upon thee; and thou givest them their meat in DUE season. Thou open their hands and satisfy the desire of every living creature" Psalm 145:15-16

I promise you, the kindness you've planting in the past has an assigned date to produce fruits for you in the future!

Dreaming of Snakes Part 1

Are you having dreams about snakes? Wow! these are some of the most evil dreams you could experience. A snake represents evil, wickedness, witchcraft, deceit etc.

Scripture tell us that the serpent (snake) was more subtle than any best of the field, Genesis 3:1. The word subtle is defined as being incognito, never revealing one's true identity always hiding behind someone or something else. "And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceives the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him" Rev. 12:9

Black snakes represent pure evil, while the size and type of snake in your dream will determine the level of evil that is challenging you. For example, let's say you dreamt about a black cobra and you saw this black Cobra coming out of the water to attack you. Well, the dream is indicating that the spirit of witchcraft has been sent against you and because it's a Cobra it further indicates that this is not your regular attack instead a top ranking spirit, specifically a principality.

The black Cobra coming out of the water now speaks to the branch of witchcraft attacking you, which is the marine spirits aka, water spirits.

It is vitally important to understand the details of your dreams because the specific details will determine how you will respond. In this particular case your prayer must be specifically against witchcraft from the spiritual marine kingdom and because you're dealing with a principality you must advance your counter attack with fasting. As a side note, fighting principalities must include fasting along with prayer.

In Daniel chapter 10, it was as a result of Daniel's prayer and fasting that the prince of Persia (A demonic spiritual principality) was subdued by Michael, who is a chief Prince Angel of the Lord's Angelic host, Daniel 10:13. So as you would have read this type of spiritual warfare will require reinforcement, in fact I advise you to call on Michael the angel of the lord during your prayer time to assist you, providing you're on a fast of course.

This is nothing new, if you would recall Jesus himself said that certain types of evil spirits will only leave via prayer and fasting, Matthew 17:21.

The Error of Eating and Drinking in your dream

I can vividly recall as a young boy growing up, my mother and grandmother would always tell us as kids and grandkids never to eat from other people. My grandmother, in particular, would become furious if we were visiting one of her friends and they offered us anything to eat and we accepted, we would be dealt with once we get back at home.

Of course, as kids it was never made clear as to why our parents would react in such a way, especially when; as children you know you haven't broken any of the general rules such as lying, stealing and so on. In today's teaching on dreams, we will incorporate the purpose behind our parents thinking in relationship to eating and drinking in our dreams.

There are so many Christians who should be well advanced in their walk with God and uncovering the devices of the devil. Unfortunately, because they're in bondage to mainstream Christianity such as the many conferences, religious catches, and jargon that all ends with extracting monies from your account and wallet but never providing a solution.

My desire today is to take you into the realm of not only revelation but more importantly understanding. I have said in so many of my articles before that our dreams places us directly into the spirit realm. As a reminder, while we are physically asleep the spirit part of our being is well awake engaging in the realm of the spirit. Therefore, actions, feelings, colors, people, animals, etc. are for the most part symbols and representation of greater understanding.

Have you ever had a dream of you being feed in your dream or you just plain simply eating in your dream? Well, if you had or know of someone that did, I am here to reveal the spiritual implications of such a dream. Eating in a dream is literally bait from the Enemy's camp. Now, as with everything else the Enemy's attack even though in most cases it can be very subtle, he is always operating within the boundaries of spiritual law, the reality is he has no choice. The spiritual law says, "But while men slept his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way," Matthew 13:25.

With the above the law in mind, the enemy subtly engages us in our sleep; this, of course, would be our most venerable state, especially if we are depleted of the word of God. Being in such a depleted state one is vulnerable to be manipulated by Satan and the power of darkness in their dreams. In fact, it is a lot easier to successfully attack a person in their dreams than in reality, mainly because the dreamer thinks his dream is just a dream and does not understand the importance of his dreams. For example, one would never see the correlation between eating in a dream and not being able to succeed in life. I have sat with many folks who I would have explained this principle to. It would be at this point that they began to recall dreams that they had just before an opportunity, promotion, expectations, etc. and coincidentally nothing came to fruition after the dream.

Eating in a dream like I have mentioned is satanic, demonic concoction. The reality is the food that you see along with the drinks are literally evil spirits that have transformed into certain food and drinks, mainly food and drinks that you like. For example let's say you had a dream where you were eating chocolate cake, well, this "chocolate cake" could be a spirit of poverty, a spirit of sickness, a spirit of rejection, a spirit of setback and delay, etc. This is also the case when a person visits a voodoo or witchcraft practitioner that provides them with a certain concoction to drink or a particular food to eat. The victim has zero idea that what they were told was a solution to their problem is really edibles and drinks that will reroute their original destinies and add more to their problems that are currently present in their lives. One of the most frequent occurrences of this is usually found among young high school and college students that smoke marijuana or consume some type of illegal drug. In such a case one of the participants' drugs is "laced," meaning something has been added to the substance for the most part unknowing to the victim that either temporarily or permanently alters the state of mind and behavior of the victim.

The evidence of this will be as follows: the victim becomes increasingly moody, depleted of shame; the victim will sometimes remove all of their clothing and walk the streets completely naked. The victim will always be angry, hostile, withdrawn. Sometimes the victim would go off into a Trans and go missing for days and show up as if nothing has happened. The victim becomes bipolar in their behavior and again, extremely moody. I personally know of cases where a person consumed food in a dream and from that day forward there was a particular pain in their body that could not be explained by Doctors. In fact, the Doctors concluded that the victim was creating all of this stuff in their mind. There are extreme cases where folks would feel something moving or crawling in their bodies in other situations there are those that have eliminated from their bodies snakes and strange creatures that again there is no understanding how it got there in the first place.

My friend this is Black Magic, Voodoo, Obeah, witchcraft in full effect and those that suffer from it are mainly those that LACK KNOWLEDGE! Many folks are totally unaware that they can be initiated into witchcraft or forced to marry someone that they don't even like or do something that they don't want to do via eating or drinking in the dream. An initiation is a ceremony is a process that a person takes part in becoming a member of a group. Now, in reality, the initiation is, in fact, an evil covenant being forged with the person and the group he's joining. Therefore, one can be initiated via the vulnerability of their dream through eating and drinking in the dream. Amazingly, a lot of false Prophets, Pastors and others like them resort to such evil to persuade folks to follow them or join their church or organization. This explains why when you visit a certain church you begin to have dreams where you are either eating and drinking with the members or having sex with the Pastor or leaders of that congregation. Again, all of this is demonic manipulation in the spirit realm via the dream to influence you to join that church or organization in the natural.

I am confident it is now making a whole lot of sense why our parents were so strict as to not allowing or insisting that we do not eat from others, obviously due to the covert evil that can be administered into our food which parallels the same principle of eating in our dream via spiritual contamination. 

If you have had such experiences, you must first renounce and reject every dream you've had where you were eating or drinking. Secondly, you must ask God to destroy any and all spiritual and physical materials that have found its way in your body via eating and drinking in your dreams. Also, pray that you will eliminate these evil substances either spiritually or physically from your body. However, none of what I have just mentioned would be of any use to you unless you are simultaneously on a seven day fast while adhering to the above instructions. I want to further admonish you to specifically including in your reading during your fast, Proverbs 23:1-3,6-8.

Spiritual Oppression

For many believers of Jesus Christ, you are currently experiencing "spiritual oppression". Spiritual
oppression is where you find supernatural evil occurrence taking place in one's life such as enormous unexpected bills, vehicle constantly having to visit the repair shop, being held down in your bed by unseen forces, your bed shaking by an unseen force, trouble erupting in the home for foolish reasons, constant insomnia. Unexplained accidents in the workplace that leads to suspension or reprimands, monies going missing off your bank accounts, panic and anxiety attacks, unidentified or unexplained sickness, severe depression to the point where it feels as if there is a literal weight on your shoulders. Constant confusion in your mind accompanied with irritating forgetfulness, strange noise and cracking sounds in your home particularly at night time.

Consistent or sporadic evil dreams/nightmares, an intense feeling of fear and unwarranted worry, always thinking about death and the loss of your livelihood. My friend if you are experiencing any of the above experiences that just all of a sudden popped up in your life then you are certainly under "spiritual oppression".

The whole idea of spiritual oppression is to overwhelm its victim in such a way that it literally disables his faith. As a result the believer is saturated with fear, anxiety, doubt, unbelief and questions the word of God. As a result the victim's prayer life also becomes disable which now leaves its victim in a state of utter confusion and an erroneous reliance on self; this my friend sets the course for self destruction and an uncanny state of FRUSTRATION!

Specific prayers is your key out of this overwhelming attack against your spiritual walk............. You must begin an aggressive counter attack inclusive of a minimum of a two day fast praying against the spirits of fear, confusion, anxiety and every other spirit that is associated with this spiritual oppression.
Make no mistake knowledge without application is still considered spiritual ignorance.

Every Christians needs some type of deliverance

There is absolutely no human being that lives on the face of this earth, inclusive of Christians, that do not need or requires some type of deliverance. To say otherwise, would suggest, a) the bible is not telling the complete truth about the just and righteous folks and b) those who claim that they do not need deliverance are in fact sinless and perfect. Meaning, those that have become Christians have never sinned since their conversion and have simultaneously mastered the art of resisting every sin or temptation that the enemy has hurled at them since the day of their conversion to Christianity.

A Christian is one who has accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and savior. Unfortunately, there are many who believe that they instantaneously became sin proof and are not able to commit sin after their conversion. However, this act alone did not rid them of every sinful act they would have practiced prior to accepting Christ, to the contrary due to your conversion Jesus Christ has forgiven you of all your sins up to that point and has made provisions to forgive you as long as you confess and ask for forgiveness upon sinning after your conversion according to, 1 John 1:9. It is so unfortunate that the average Christian and by extension the church are under this grand illusion that because they are not actively fornicating, committing adultery, Murder, drinking alcohol and whatever else they label as "obvious sin" it is then erroneously assume that they do not need deliverance.

If you were to visit any church and ask all the Christian to raise their hands and let’s say out of one hundreds folks that are in attendance ninety five raised their hands. Now ask the ninety five Christians that originally poked their hands in the air affirming their conversion if they needed deliverance, I am almost sure you will see no hands raised. Of course this is due to erroneous teachings and a false perception of what the understanding of deliverance really is.

First of all let us define the word deliverance; deliverance is defined as liberating or freeing someone from someone or something. It is also defined as rescuing someone from moral corruption or evil. With the above definition in mind let me ask you Mr. & Mrs. “Got it all together Christian”, have you been delivered from the not so obvious sins such as, speaking evil behind your brother or sister's back? What about those little "white lies?” Better yet, what about your secret untamed jealousy, spitefulness and bitterness lurking within you just waiting for the opportunity to launch at some unsuspecting victim?

As a result of the misconception of the word deliverance in Christians circles, it has made these misguided Christians some of the most judgmental, condemning folks to ever walk the face of the earth. I have seen this particularly in new converts, who fail to read and study the word of God for themselves, instead they become engulfed in the flawed, judgmental, and condemning teachings and preaching hurled from the pulpits of  their place of worship.  

In fact, the minute you turn on any type of social media, specifically, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter etc, you’ll find some Christian judging or condemning a post, pic or page of another Christian, if that Christian is wearing certain attire that may not be “Christian like”, sporting tattoos, God forbid if the Christian in question is in a photo with friends consuming alcohol or at a club, sporting body piercing etc, all while still claiming Christianity. Well as far as the “True Christian” is concern this so called Christian is not a Christians by their standards, and I repeat, “Their standards”.

While I do not promote such behavior by any Christian, I also do not condemn and judge them and outright declaring that they are not Christians or children of God. In fact what I do understand as a deliverance minister is that when a Christian displays such behavior, this is a Christian that needs DELIVERANCE! So, instead of judging and condemning and trying to make myself appear as if I have it all together, I begin to pray against the spirit that is influencing my brother or sister in Christ, be it a spirit of alcohol, a spirit of homosexuality, a spirit of lust, a spirit of anger etc. I then ask God to strengthen my sister or brother in Christ by leading them in the company of good teachers and preachers in an effort to subdue what has been subduing them. This is what a real Christian does; he helps his fellow Christian, not pull him/her down. The reason for this is because they know that it was not an overnight thing for them. Meaning they needed deliverance from the day of their conversion and will continue to need deliverance until the day they die. Judgmental Christians need to be delivered from the spirits of judging and condemning others and at the same time ask God to supply them with a spirit of compassion and restoration for themselves and their fellow Christian.

Let's take it a step further Mr. & Mrs. "I don't need deliverance", how come it's wrong when other folks or their children do what is obviously wrong but when you or your kids do the exact same evil, it's considered by you a non issue or it's justifiable. Did not the bible say, "Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter?" Isaiah 5:20.

My friend, I am about keeping it very much real today and that begins with me saying that myself and the other 7 plus billion people that resides on this earth needs some type of deliverance. Scripture confirms this with the following, "For there is not a just man upon earth, that does good, and sins not" Eccl. 7:20.

Therefore, if the Just or Righteous man or woman is not sinless according to the above scripture, doesn't that indicate that he or she needs to be rescued from some type of moral corruption or evil? Additionally, if you claim to be sinless or sin proof after accepting Jesus Christ, then why would the word of God make provision for the Believers that he know would commit sin after the Believer accepting him as Lord and savior?. As a reminder, 1 John 1:9, John is speaking to the Believers of Jesus Christ and not sinners. Consequently, in the same passage of scripture, 1 John 1:8, it reads the following Mr. & Mrs. “Sinless Christian” “If we say we have NO SIN, we deceive ourselves and the TRUTH is not in us.

My friend just in case you didn't get the spiritual memo; Well, the persons that you know need deliverance due to your knowledge of them committing adultery, fornicating, or whatever you have labeled as big sins; they are in the same boat as you, who's consistently exaggerating, telling white lies, speaking evil against others behind their backs, wishing harm on others etc.
SIN IS SIN; THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS BIG SIN AND SMALL SIN, and if you continue to claim you are sinless then I humbly ask my fellow believers and readers to join me in prayer as we pray that lying spirit off of you in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen!

The spirit world is the parent world to our natural world

Things in the natural are dependent on the things of the spirit to exist. Your real fight is and will always be in the spirit world! All things have its origin in the spirit realm and what is manifested physically is as a result of what has been conceived spiritually. My friend, this is the foundation of spiritual warfare!

It is so disappointing that folks of occult practices such as Witchcraft, Voodoo, Black Magic etc. are so much more advance with the understanding of this principle than your average Christian. Unfortunately, the average Christian has been erroneously lead to believe that jerking, running, hopping and hollering makes them spiritual or places them in the spirit. Sadly, their claim to holiness is not drinking, smoking, fornicating engage in adultery etc., while at the same time totally void of spiritual knowledge. My friend, this makes you putty in the hand of the enemy!

My friend I got news for you....... Everything (good and bad) of the past, present and future will always be as a result of the world we cannot see (The spirit realm). In fact we are slaves of that realm because we are either being influenced by Godly beings or Demonic beings, in any event we cannot see them but they are very much present doing their job of influencing us.

I said all of that to say this, fighting your enemies or anyone that's challenging you is a clear sign that, a) You are not aware of the spiritual rules of engagement and b) You certainly don't know who your real enemy is. A sound Christian with an understanding of the spirit realm knows that his focus and attention must not be placed against a person, place or thing. Instead, he challenges and resist the spirits that's influencing that person, place or thing....... This is sound spiritual wisdom!


"Do not become engage with the things that are seen, for the things that are seen are temporal or mere distractions. Instead Focus and pay special attention on the things that are not seen (The spirit realm) for these things are eternal" 2 Corinthians 4:18.

The spirit world is activated by our words and belief

Due to the spirit realm being the parent world to our natural world there are some very import principles that we need to not only be aware of but it must be cemented into our understanding.

The beings of the spirit world (Angels, Demons etc.) are very much limited in their interaction within our natural realm. The reality is simply this, the spirit realm is heavily dependent on our actions and more importantly our words. This is so because the spirit realm cannot manifest what is pending in the spirit realm (good or bad) into our natural realm outside of our agreeing with whatever is pending. Therefore, our belief in whatever we say or do becomes our signature of agreement in the world of the spirit to bring about manifestation. 

This also explains why in the world of witchcraft folks have to follow certain rituals to bring about their evil. The rituals are basically following demonic instruction which is really a form of agreeing with these evil spirits for them to do the bidding of the practitioners. It is the same thing when one speak, obey and do the word of God. In both cases the spirit world is activated via the cooperation of human agents. There can be no earthly manifestation of good or evil without Human and spirit agreement....... THIS IS A SPIRITUAL LAW!

The following scriptures makes this abundantly clear:

"Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven" Matt. 18:18

"God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were" Romans 4:17

"Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee" Job 22:28

"Death and life is in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof" Proverbs 18:21

The above scriptures are proof of the spirit realm eagerly awaiting instructions from us to establish manifestation in our natural realm. To put it another way, Demonic forces are patiently awaiting your negative words and action sealed with your belief of those words and actions to bring about manifestation. On the other hand the Angels of the Lord are also eagerly awaiting the word of God to leave your mouth accompanied with your belief of course to bring about manifestation in the earth, the following scripture is proof of that:

"Bless the Lord, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word" Psalm 103:20. Like I have mentioned in my last post things in the natural are dependent on the things of the spirit to exist, however this existence is established by what we say and the belief of what we say.

Job, in Job 4:25, said that the thing he greatly feared came upon him. This is just another example of declaring negative stuff, believing it and therefore it's just a matter of time before it comes to fruition. I am sure Job probably often spoke and declared the things that he feared and as a result his fear was manifested, through his words and belief demonic forces brought about the manifestation.

I will end with this, the consistent declarations of what you believe, be it positive or negative are eagerly waiting to be approved by the spirit realm to bring about manifestation in the natural realm........ My advice! SPEAK LIFE SO THAT YOU AND YOUR SEED MAY LIVE!

Demonic manipulation in and from the spirit realm

The word imitate is defined as mimicking, impersonating, manipulating or copying the image,
behavior or likeness of
something or someone else.

I can vividly recall doing a teaching on "Dreams and their interpretations" when a particular lady asked if I could interpret a dream for her. I agreed, and the woman began telling her story. She said how the Lord is always speaking to her and how she dreams about famous people and these famous people in her dreams basically tell her that the Lord has called her to be a teacher, to evangelize, lead his people and that the Lord told her that she has the gift of prophecy, etc.

Anyway, while she was relaying this dream/story to me, there were red flags popping up in my spirit concerning what she claimed as the Lord speaking to her. I then asked this lady after she was done telling me her dream/story, "How do you know it was the Lord speaking to you?" The Lady paused for a moment and immediately became offended and began to verbally attack me by questioning my teachings on dreams and their interpretation" and who do I think I am to ask her how do I know if it was the Lord speaking to her. Well, her response was a dead give away as to what the Spirit of Truth (The Holy Spirit) was revealing to me at that time, which now brings us to today's teaching.

Many folks erroneously believe that every voice from the spirit realm or should I say any sound that is not accompanied by a body and seem to be spiritual is from the Lord. What folks need to understand is that the spirit realm is filled with many voices. These voices can either be Godly voices, such as God, Jesus, his angels, etc. Likewise One can hear the voice of Satan, his evil spirits, demons, etc. However differentiating these voices without being misled will be solely based on one's relation with God, in particular, their reading and studying the Bible. The Bible is a living book, simply because it's the word of God. God is a spirit, John 4:24 and the words that he speaks is spirit, John 6:63. John 1:1-2,14 says, "In the beginning was the word and the word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was at the beginning with God. And the word was made flesh and dwell among us". Therefore, when we read the Bible whether we understand what we are reading or not, the spirit of God which is the word of God is feeding our spirit. This is likened to when we eat our food, whether we like the food or not whether the food tastes good or not it still provides nutrients to our bodies that result in energy for us to do whatever it is that we need to do.

Nevertheless, because this lady was not feeding her spirit via the word of God and as a result she was easily manipulated and mislead by the spirit realm via demonic forces of course impersonating, mimicking and copying the things of God. There was absolutely nothing to stop their activities but more importantly she was a co-conspirator to her own misleading due to her lack of spiritual knowledge. Trust me when I say to you there are many folks just like this lady who have reduced the Spirit of God to a performance. Such as being slain in the spirit, speaking in demonic tongues, supposedly having "spiritual convulsions" where they apparently have no control over their bodies and the so-called power of God toss them to and fro sometimes exposing their private parts. Question! If God is a God of order then why would he condone such disorderly acts among his people?

Well, let's review a few scripture to cement this spiritual understanding and hopefully this knowledge will make you the reader more of an avid reader of the word of God. In Exodus 7, God specifically said to Moses that he has made him a god before Pharaoh, the word god in this text comes from the Hebrew word Elohim which means a ruler or judge with divine connections. Moses and his brother Aaron was commissioned by God to go and demand that Pharaoh let the children of Israel go. God further said to Moses that when Pharaoh ask for a miracle from him, to prove that the God of Moses sent him, Moses must cast his rod to the ground and the rod that Moses cast to the ground would become a snake, which actually happened.

However, Satan and the powers of darkness loves to copy, mimic and imitate the things of God. Nonetheless, it is all done through demonic manipulation. Scripture records that Pharaoh sent for his wise men and the Sorcerers and the Magicians who also cast their staffs to the ground and through their enchantments caused their staff to become snakes also, Exodus 7:11-12. These same Magicians via their enchantments continued to mimic Moses' miracles in Exodus 7:22 and in Exodus 8:7. Again Pharaoh's Magicians are able to perform such "Miracles" via demonic manipulation. The question is, how would you be able to distinguish the difference if you were placed in a similar position? How many so called Prophets or preachers would have spoken a so called word of God over your life but due to you not being spiritually aware of their demonic manipulations you automatically thought it was God. What about those healing they claimed you got after they prayed for you when the truth is either the pain came back of the pain transferred from one area of your body to the next.

Scripture provides us with an abundance of knowledge as it relates to evil spirit replicating so-called miracles. In the Book of Revelations, John the Revelator said, "And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the Dragon and out of the mouth of the Beast and out of the mouth of the false Prophet. For they are the spirits of devils working "MIRACLES," which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty," Revelation 16:13-14. So, it is crystal clear that not only can devils work miracles but particularly through false Prophets. How do you know if that Prophet that spoke over your life and performed a miracle wasn't an agent of Satan's camp manipulating you via demonic means? What did you use as a tester to discern the spirit emanating from this person? This is why Scripture clearly says to us, "Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try or test the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. At this moment know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, and every spirit that confesses not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: 1 John 4:1-3.

I am always left in a state of disarray when I meet up with folks who always have a word from the Lord. But at the same time when asked if they regularly read their bible or are they, frequent hearers of the word of God, they're hearing from God seems to always outweigh the feeding of their spirit via the word of God. Thus, I must now wonder are they really hearing the voice of God or the perpetrating voice of Satan?

My friend I can not emphasize enough the importance of feeding your inner man which is your spirit. It is excellent to give praise and worship, it is great to attend every conference, conclave and church meeting but it is of greater importance to acquaint yourself with the spirit of God via the word of God.

Scripture warns us again, "For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And marvel not; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also are transformed as the ministers of righteousness whose end shall be according to their works", 2 Corinthians 11:13-15.

My spiritual advice to you is simply this, ask God right now, to open your spiritual eyes and ears and overwhelm you with the spirit of discernment. Ask him to subject your flesh to his Holy Spirit, which is the spirit of truth, sent forth to guide us his children into all truth. Now, renounce all deception and manipulation performed by Satan and his false prophets unknowingly over your life and ask God to forgive you for neglecting his word and being lead by your own understanding in the mighty name of Jesus Christ!

Please, Help me i'm hurting

I am of the view that one of the greatest insults to any person that's going through a painful, hurting or
difficult
period in their life, is to have those that they would look to for support, either ignore their cries for help, take the side of whatever or whoever is causing them hurt, shrug them off or categorize the hurting person's hurt/pain as a non-issue.

It is beyond my human understanding how insensitive some folks can be concerning the hurt and pains of others, particularly those that they claim to love and care for. Please bear in mind that you must never reduce what, that pain or hurt is doing to that person. In fact you just could possibly be the last human contact they were attempting to reach out to prior to ending their life.

I want to share some of what I think is much needed wisdom in these trying and hurting times that so many folks are experiencing.

The following are some pointers to consider prior to what could possibly turn out to be or appear as insensitive behavior:

1) MAKE TIME FOR THOSE YOU KNOW ARE HURTING.

2) LET THOSE THAT ARE HURTING VENT.

3) WHOMEVER OR WHATEVER HAS CAUSED THE HURT TO THE ONE THAT IS HURTING, DO NOT PLAY REFEREE BY POINTING OUT TO THE PERSON WHO IS HURTING WHO IS RIGHT OR WHO IS WRONG (Hellllllo now is not the time for that).

4. PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, DO NOT AND I MEAN DO NOT TURN THIS HURTING PERSON'S PAIN INTO AN ARGUMENT.

5) CEMENT INTO YOUR MIND THAT YOU ARE THERE TO MAKE THINGS BETTER FOR THEM, NOT TO BECOME AN ADDED THORN IN THEIR SIDE.

6) PRACTICE LISTENING MORE AS OPPOSE TO TALKING, SOME HURTING FOLKS JUST WANT TO TALK, THAT'S IT. THEY JUST WANT TO BE HEARD WITHOUT INTERRUPTIONS.

7) ALWAYS REMEMBER, DO YOUR BEST TO TRY AND UNDERSTAND THE PAIN OF OTHERS AS OPPOSE TO ATTEMPTING TO BE ALL INTELLECTUAL AND GIVING THE APPEARANCE OF HAVING IT ALL TOGETHER. EVEN THOUGH YOU MAY THINK WHAT YOU WANT TO SAY IS GOOD ADVICE, THEY MAY NOT WANT TO HEAR THAT ADVICE AT THE TIME. TIMING OF ADVICE IS KEY MY FRIEND.

8) IF YOU MUST SPEAK PLEASE REMEMBER, THIS IS NOT ABOUT YOU! INSTEAD IT IS ALL ABOUT THE ONE WHO'S CURRENTLY LIVING THIS ORDEAL. SO PUT YOUR ANGER, IMPATIENCE AND PRIDE ON HOLD FOR NOW.

9) DO YOUR BEST TO BE REAL WITH THEM, MEANING DO NOT BEHAVE AS IF YOU CAN'T WAIT FOR THIS TO BE OVER WITH, OR GIVING THEM THE IMPRESSION THAT YOU HAVE MORE IMPORTANT THINGS TO DO.

10) IN ALL HONESTY SCRIPTURE IS PROBABLY THE LAST THING THEY WOULD WANT TO HEAR, AGAIN TIMING IS EVERYTHING IN DELICATE MATTERS SUCH AS THESE.

11) LAST BUT CERTAINLY NOT LEAST ALWAYS REMEMBER YOUR DAY OF HURT AND PAIN IS PENDING LIKE ALL OF US. SO YOUR BEHAVIOR TOWARDS THE HURTING NOW, ARE THE SEEDS THAT WILL COME HOME TO HARVEST WHEN YOUR TURN ARRIVES.


"DO UNTO OTHERS, AS YOU WOULD HAVE THEM DO UNTO YOU" Matthew 7:12. THINK BEFORE YOU SPEAK!
