Jesus, while on earth, once looked at Peter in Mathew 16:23 and said to him, “Get behind Me, Satan! You are an offense to Me, for you are not mindful of the things of God, but the things of men.”
It was as serious as that. Jesus, equally said in Mathew 18:7 saying, “Woe to the world because of offenses! For offenses must come, but woe to that man by whom the offense comes”!
This was equally repeated in Luke 17:1 which says, “then He said to the disciples, “It is impossible that no offenses should come, but woe to him through whom they do come”!
In addition, he equally said in Mathew 11:6 saying, And blessed is he who is not offended because of Me.” What I am trying to point out is that there are great tragedies in having offenses.
Many destinies are pushed into the gutter because of offenses. In other words, a greater number of people have their destinies aborted because they could not recognize their destiny helpers, thereby becoming offended at them.
Apostle Paul, who was well vast in spiritual warfare, said this in 2 Corinthians 2:11 saying, “lest Satan should take advantage of us; for we are not ignorant of his devices”.
It is highly unfortunate that these days, lots of Christians are ignorant of the devices of the devil. For that reason, they are taken captive by the devil, who uses offenses to corrupt their spirit man.
However, it is unfortunate that many believers are ignorant of the grievous implication of having offenses. The devil who knows the implication of offenses is using offenses to its advantage using his agents.
Remember what Jesus said in Mathew 11:6 which says, “And blessed is he who is not offended because of Me.” We can see the practical implication of offenses in Mathew 13:54-58.
In the passages above, when Jesus had come to His own country, He taught them in their synagogue, so that they were astonished and said, “Where did this Man get this wisdom and these mighty works?
Is this not the carpenter’s son? Isn’t His mother called Mary? And His brothers James, Jesus, Simon, and Judas? And His sisters, are they not all with us? Where then did this Man get all these things?”
So they were offended at Him. But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own country and in his own house.” Now He did not do many mighty works there because of their unbelief.
In our society today, we can still see practical instances of the gravity of having offenses. Remember what we saw in various posts about faith, such as faith comes by hearing and understanding the words of God.
Also, God promised in Jeremiah 3:15 saying, “And I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding”.
The reality is that there are many men and women of God that God(Pastors) that God had positioned to feed us with knowledge and understanding. So the devil locates these pastors and try to use his agents to blackmail them to cause you to be offended in them.
Please shine your eyes, the ministry of any pastor you are offended in can never profit you. As said, in reality, most of these agents are daughters of Jezebel, who do everything to seduce and sleep with these men of God.
When they succeed to sleep with these men of God, they drain them of God’s anointing in them, leaving them empty vessels whose messages would no longer impact anybody and finally pull them down.
Remember what happened to a televangelist Jimmy Swaggart some years ago, and lately Popular Pastor Wilson. However, when these daughters of Jezebel could not succeed in the soil the anointing of some men of God, they will rush to the social media and claim that such men of God slept with them.
One instance is about Apostle Johnson Suleiman. Could it ever occur to you that these daughters of Jezebel may never have met the apostle Suleiman one on one?. The devil feels threatened by the exploits of the apostle John Suleiman around the continents of the world.
Maybe this post is for you, who seem to have believed these false accusations. Please realize that you in particular are the target, not apostle JohnsonSuleiman. You are the target because the devil wants to rob you and cause you to be offended in apostle Suleiman.
It never occurs to you that it is men and women like you that the devil is after?. Incidentally, the devil tries to use agents, men, and women given to reprobate minds and had sold their souls to the devil to publicize these false and fabricated accusations that hold no water.
Please, my candid advice to you is that you should pray that God should give you a discerning spirit to know when the devil is targeting you to rob you of your inheritance. I have never met Apostle Johnson Suleiman, one on one, but the impact of his messages on my life is tremendous.
Having said that, I wish that you realize that there is a conspiracy of the highest order by the devil and his agents to rubbish men of God so that their ministries would no longer be impactful to you.
What bothers me greatly is that many Christians are totally ignorant of these conspiracies that they ignorantly partner with them by sharing such false accusations from the pit of hell.
The point is that some people fail not to reason logically. Do you think that a man of God like Apostle Suleiman that stands in big stadiums around the world to challenge the forces of darkness could possibly bring himself so low as to touch another woman?.
It is unthinkable, and I am trying to point it to you that it is a conspiracy and the accusations never hold any water. Any man that is engaged in spiritual warfare can never get involved in immoral acts or the devil will deal with him or her instantly, and may even s strike the person to death.
Remember what happened in Zechariah 3:1-3 which says, “Then he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the Angel of the Lord, and Satan standing at his right hand to oppose him.
The reason Satan stood at his right hand to oppose Joshua, the high priest, was that Joshua was clothed with filthy garments, which grants Satan access to his right hand to oppose him.
I doubt if there is anything that pollutes the anointing as $exual sin and the spirit and power of God can never dwell in the life of anyone that engages in immorality. Remember what Eccl 10:8 said, that whoso breaketh a hedge, a serpent shall bite him.
This is the end of part one, keep a date with us as we will continue our discourse in part two next. Shalom!
