In this edifying update I will emphasize some of the satanic trap often used by the devil to entrapped men of God or Christians and ways of an escape. And also the reason some men of God or pastors who are fervent in preaching and evangelizing the gospel don’t have mansion in Heaven.
Though they have a land of an inheritance in Heaven but majority of these men of God are yet to set-up their Heavenly land properties under construction. These and more shall be our discussion in this update and I pray that you shall be blessed and quicken-up your zeal toward heavenly mission because the devil isn’t a fool.
To start with, I want you all to know that, it is a sin for a man of God to come late to church, even if it’s just a minute late. If he fails to pray a prayer of forgiveness it will hindered him of his blessing and if rapture sound that very moment, he may not make it.
I sincerely pity many men of God who just pray and bless anybody the way they like; without mindful of the ugly and wickedness in the society today. It’s very dangerous as a true man of God to pray a prayer like; “you shall prosper in everything you lay your hands on in Jesus name".
If he/she is a marine agent of darkness sent to destroy your ministries, you have just given him/her a prayer to support his evil act upon your ministry. My beloved fellow men of God, you ought to be very careful and be wise while blessing your member. Instead say “every good thing you lay your hands on” makes sure the word “good” appears in your prayers.
As a Man of God before you commenced a church fellowship, yes you only know yourself but still, don’t be over confidence because you don’t know the secret life of your members. Hence in order have a glorious church fellowship with an oceanic move of the Holy Ghost you must always open the service with a prayer of forgiveness and mercy, even before the prayer of thanks-giving.
Always make sure you pray a prayer of forgiveness and urge the congregation to confess their sin before the Lord and ask them to examine their secret life. If there is anyone having issues with anybody before coming to church, advice him/her to go back home and settle it then come back.
Isaiah 59:2 But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear". Proverbs 28:9 He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer shall be abomination" John 9:31 Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth.
Also ensure you plead for the Blood of Jesus and sanctified the whole congregation, call upon the Holy Ghost to uproot every satanic program or devices of the enemy in your midst. Then afterward you shall behold the touch of the Almighty and you will realize the danger of commencing church fellowship without confession
of sinfulness and Holy Ghost sanctification.
For Example, According to Hebrew 7:27 “Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people's: for this he did once, when he offered up himself” Before the high priest could come before the Lord, he will not only sacrifice for the people sins alone but with his own sin too.
Even if he has not committed any, he will still not be sure if his/her sins is totally washed, but will still tied a rope on his waist if perhaps he died in there because of his sin, then the rope will be used to draw him out, all this were not recorded in bible as a story, but for us to study and understand how God hate sins as little as it may be.
After then, ask the Holy Spirit to take control of the service, I tell you, you will found out that everything you do in that church fellowship that day will be perfect and there will be testimonies, for the spirit of God will fill the whole church. You may discover that some people will be walking out of the church without any reason, most especially when the prayers is on progress.
This is often encountered due to the effectiveness of the prayers which was built on the consecration of the church of Christ. The Holy Ghost fire will torment them .....Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. (James 5:16). And if you want to arrest them, please forbid anyone from going out of the church while the prayers is on progress then you shall behold the move of the power of the Holy Ghost.
Also, another achievement is that, you will discover that during the service, everything will be in order. The people that will be sleeping during sermon will be children alone for the Holy Spirit will make them to cooperate too, and will not disturb during the service. And also the people who maybe sleeping will be late comers and sinners that are not ready to repent. i.e. people who have abominations on them.
Whenever you are praying against the evil works of darkness and the satanic agents in your church as a pastor or man of God, don’t pray fall and die prayers on them but instead arrest them by the power of the Holy Ghost, consumed and destroy their power with the fire of God. After destroying their power, they too will become great tools in God’s hand. Remember you were once God enemy, and he never kills you?
As a man of God, if the Holy Spirit has reviewed to you that a particular lady or man has an evil spirit, and he/she is among the Choirs or Ushers, or Prayer team or any post. If you do not retired or step him/her, within two years all your member will be initiated. Remove him/her and set deliverance for him/her as soon possible.
Do not be carried away by someone who is highly talented in the church; do not be in haste in making him/her a worker in the church because satanic agents are very talented and very zeal in the work of God. But before taking any steps, go before the Lord in prayer, and ask him to review to you whom this fellow is, because you already have it in mind to put him/her in a particular position in the church.
Man of God, do you really wish to make it to Heaven? Then tell God to review the spiritual statue of your wife/children to you, else you will end up in Hell if you are initiated. If you have some brethren in the church that are financial source of the church and her activities. You must be very careful and watch and study their spiritual life, else you might be sponsoring your church with blood money because ..... a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump (Galatians 5:9).
Whenever you realized that a particular fellow come to church and the following week, he/she never show up again, and it keeps happening like that, then you have some tares among your wheat that needs to be uprooted. You are dealing with some satanic agents.
Whenever anyone come to you and tell you, “Sir there is something seriously troubling me, and I want the Lord to answer me, which I will like you to pray the prayer of successfulness” 1 Samuel 1:17 Then Eli answered and said, Go in peace: and the God of Israel grant thee thy petition that thou hast asked of him”
Please man of God; don’t say that kind of prayer in this perverse generation of vipers without first inquiring about the nature of his/her needy. You must interview such person and never be in haste to utter any word of prayer. Most of those people in your church are marine agents sent on a special mission.
When they try to demote a man of God spiritually without fruitful efforts then they will embark on prayer and fasting for his destruction. They will come to him and ask him to pray for them so as to seal their wicked prayers. They may say “they have something troubling them which they want the Lord to do for them, so pray for me sir” whereas their prayer may be, If God is Love, let my love enter into the heart of Pastor A, and let him sleep with me.
Be very wise as a man of God because some has ended up in destroying their calls and ministry as a result of this terrible mistake. As a man of God, be very careful of the gift you receive from people, wolves are much more than sheep in the church of this generation. 90% of these gifts are fire extinguishing arrows, it is to water down your spiritual life, but you must pray and seek the intervention of the Holy Spirit before you receive gifts from anybody no matter how close he/she may be to you.
As a man of God, the first thing you must do is to first go to the children class and sprinkle the blood of Jesus upon them. Many children teacher are satanic agents,
and any biscuit and sweet you share for your children members in the church should be first dropped in your office, pray a fire prayer on it and destroy every demonic power on it before giving it to the children.
As a man of God, do not just allow cakes, minerals and biscuit to be shared anyhow in the churches, there are some satanic agents that will just walk into the church and say they are celebrating birthday, and begin to share it in the church without knowing it’s a demonic food, offer for initiate more members.
Never gaze too much on a woman face, if you are not strong yet. They have demonic cosmetics to charm men of God; don’t even give attention to those sexual seductive agents, even when they come for counseling. Don’t allow them in, until they dress decently and when they do that, you must pray for the guidance of the holy spirit before you attend to them. As a man of God, always set the fire of Holy Ghost in your office entrance before you allow anyone into your office.
These demonic agents have spiritual eyes and when they see fire burning at the entrance of your office; they won’t come closer to you. If you have respect to God as a man of God, you don’t need anyone to tell you not to pick phone calls during church fellowship but to switch off your mobile phones, regardless of using I-pad in your service.
There should be discipline in the house of God, also don’t allow eating and drinking in the house of God, he deserve more respect, don’t imitate the world. As a man of God, don’t waste much of your time in prayers for every pregnant woman in the church. Many of them has gone as far as going to the river goddess to seek for child, going to white garment churches
(celestial church) seeking for children.
Then they will bring that evil pregnancy to your own church and you will be sealing the pregnancy with your own prayer. Those children will be the one to destroy your ministry if you do not get rid of the sowed tares among the wheat (Mathew 13:25) Also, pastor should be very wise in your sitting arrangement in the church, once a man of God is preaching and he sees a seductive woman, and yield to what he saw. I tell you, he has fallen already and the Holy Spirit will depart from him immediately.
This is very important as a man of God, be vigilant and cooperate with God....for God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints ( 1 Corinthian 14:33). In the first front row, second and even third row seat of your church, let it be filled with men and boys alone, then other rows should be reserved and filled with women and ladies, Remember you are still a human and not an angel.
Also, you should try to observe if people are fun of coming late to the church service, note that these people have invoked some demonic spirit into the church wall clock. Personally i don’t support the idea of putting wall-clock in the church. I mean, are we timing God or what? Please get rid of wall clock from your church and secretly keep it only where you can monitor it.
Also try to watch those who are fun of coming late to church, give them a responsibility and pray against the spirit of stagnancy. As a man of God, do not allow anyone who always dresses in a seductive to function as a choir. Also try to examine the spiritual life of the best female choir you have in your church.
Try to watch the spiritual life of your workers; prayer warrior, interpreter, assistance pastors, etc. investigate with the help of Holy Spirit and not through personal interview with him/her. You need discerning spirit to be able to know who you are dealing with. A true man of God should not be the one fun of eating anyhow and or anywhere. If you are fun of that, then your spiritual life will be easily terminated.
Many have fallen through demonic food poison or bewitchment which is among the satanic deadly weapon often used against Christians. As a result of this, many men of God often eat and drink in dream, many now have sex in dream, many now see themselves in their village shrine etc.
As a man of God, I want you to remember the work you were doing for God before your promotion into pastoral office, remember how you use to preach inside public bus
, home to home and social media. That same assignment (grassroots revival) is still on course. If as a man of God, you found it difficult to drop your car and board a commercial bus so that you can preach the gospel, your fallen is ahead of you.
Revelation 2:5 Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent. Your pastoral work is just an additional work to what you were doing before, not to drop your first assignment. These are the things that earn you mansion in Heaven.
As a pastor you must do the work of an evangelist. 2 Timothy 4:5 But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry" go to hospital, go to motherless baby home, go to prison, many will be saved there. I remember Late Pastor T.O Obadare, (blind man) how he struggled to get the gospel preach to “Shina Rambo” and got him converted through the help of the Holy Ghost, and today shina rambo is a pastor and preacher of the gospel.
“Shina Rambo” was one of the notorious, untouchable and greatest criminal in Nigeria,
but he converted him through prison evangelism. Majority who are in prison, if they heard the gospel they may not end up in such dungeon! So remember the word of Jesus. I was in prison, but you visited me not
. Those words still stand. As a man of God, when you realized that a brother or a sister has backslidden from faith, do not fold hands but try to win him/her back.
This act has made many men of God to end up in Hell. You think yours is just to preach sermon and sermon, but it’s doesn’t end there! You must be sure the sheep the Lord dedicated into your hands are complete. Remember if Jesus would say that someone ought to abandon 99 sheep to look for just one missing one, and then you must also do the same. Matthew 18:12 How think ye? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray?
As a man of God, you are still in flesh and you can fall into any sin, no matter how shameful the sins may be. Never tries to cover-up your sin, if your life is spare after committing that sin. E.g. a Man of God who end up sleeping with a member of his church, and start to cry and begging God for mercy because it was not intentional, and tries to cover up his/her sin, you don’t know what you are doing.
There is no amount of fasting and praying that will wipe away that sin except you confess what you did openly before the whole congregation. That woman is not an ordinary woman, but a satanic agent sent to trap you and pollutes the altar of God.
Perhaps as man of God who end up in sleeping with a teenager, unknowingly because you were out of your sense while doing it, yes you never knew what you were doing, but also remember this; that same teenage girl is not just an ordinary girl but rather someone who surpasses your age (spiritually). And you need to expose yourself unto the church as soon as possible as a matter of restitution.
As a man of God, do not give much attention to the rich than the poor but make it equal. Whenever a poor man/woman come to you, and lodged a complaint on how he/she has been struggling to live, the solution is not prayer. You must give him/her what he/she lacks before praying for him/her. Remember Jesus also helped and feed the poor and not by prayer alone.
As a man of God, if you realized that your member keep decreasing every day, and you are sure you are in good relation with God, and you tried to win them back but they don’t, please do not change your Holiness sermon. As true man of God, things like that must happen, once things like that happen, it simply means you are still in God's training school, which is the wilderness of life.
When things get difficult, don’t change your sermon to retain members because they are not yours. Learn from the general overseer of "The Mountain Of Fire Miracles Ministries and The Deeper life Bible Ministries". They both begins with less than 20 members, but those 20 members may have left and today that same 20 members has turns into more than 20 millions members worldwide (Please be patient).
As a man of God, when a particular lady keeps appearing on your mind, and you are confused and you don’t know why, and it even go beyond appearing in your dream. Sir, you are dealing with a very high rank demonic agent in your church. And you must takes below notes into consideration.
- It is good evidence that God know you and your ministry and Satan also knows about it.
- That woman is not alone, but with other satanic agents as a back-up.
- Your ministry is under emergency attacks, and it strategy is sexual immorality.
- It is good evidence that God is about to dedicate another greater assignment to you if you overcome her.
- If you are able to conquer her, your mansion will be increased in Heaven.
- You and your ministries are among the most top wanted list in satanic calendar.
- You can only overcome by reviving and purging your prayer alter consistently with fire.
When any member comes to your church and he/she is very active, be very careful; ask the Holy Spirit to review to you about him/her, if he/she is a sheep or a wolf. Note that, whenever the unclean spirit is in control, the engine and microphone too will be affected, for there will be disorderliness. Be sensitive, to every beat and music sing in the church.
If a particular choir is always fun of singing choruses without mentioning Jesus, note that most of the songs are from the bottom of the sea, sang to introduce the service of the sea in the church. Whenever you found out that people hardly give for the development of the church, neither faithful in tithe and offering
and those who makes vow also refuse to redeem their vows.
Note that your church is under an attack and they are dealing seriously with those who made the vow, not to fulfill it. The solution is to pray and destroy those attacks. If you as a man of God is riding a jeep and living in a mansion, but the church of God remain uncovered, then you are seriously provoking God and believe it or not, God curse is upon you.
Haggai 1:8-9 Go up to the mountain, and bring wood, and build the house; and I will take pleasure in it, and I will be glorified, saith the Lord. Ye looked for much, and, lo it came to little; and when ye brought it home, I did blow upon it. Why? saith the Lord of hosts. Because of mine house that is waste, and ye run every man unto his own house.
Don’t be carried away when a lady or a man fell down in the church and burst in an unknown strange tongues in form of Holy Ghost tongues. Please you must take keen study of the environment. Be sensitive (spiritually) and let your mind showers inwardly in prayers because most of them are demonic agents. As a man of God, don’t be feels over confidence of yourself no matter how close you are before God. He hates pride and disperses vainglory.
If you are a man of God that now download your sermon through the internet, the Holy Spirit no longer speaks to you, then you have been abandoned, go and pray for mercy. You no longer pray long prayers or fast like before, your spiritual life is also dead and about to be buried.
A true men of God don’t spend much time on T.V and an Heavenly minded men of God don’t have business with Nollywood / Hollywoods movies regardless of WWE (wrestling) or Football, men of God does not belong to football clubs. As a man of God, you must be ready to fast and pray for your congregation, pray and fast for the lost one and never stop visiting or paying them a visit.
And after doing all this, and yet they fail to comeback or be restored, then you have save your own soul. Never as a man of God, preach a sermon that will benefit the rich or favor the poor with your sermon but let it favor God. As a man of God, do not concentrate more on the members of your church salvation alone, but as you are watching theirs, keep on watching your own salvation too, because many members are bound to make Heaven while some pastors will be wounded in Hell. As a minister of God, please don’t join those unfortunate cargo's going to Hell but rather examine your spiritual life everyday.
As a man of God, do not do indoor counseling with a lady alone but always make sure there is another lady or two with you, but it will be better to do it openly. And I pray that you shall not lose your Heavenly reward after several years spent in the missionary field and vineyard of the Lord as an oracle and mouth piece of God in Jesus Name.
