A Frenemy is “a person who combines the characteristics of a friend and an enemy” (Wikipedia).
It can be so irritating when the people you consider friends become the weak spot the forces of evil 😈 use as a conduit to destabilize you.
Are you aware that the Christian warrior/Minister is under constant attacks from spiritual and physical foes? Do you also know that It’s much easier to launch out in warfare against the spiritual forces of evil 😈 than against human beings?
The warfare gets more complicated, when the attackers are among those you consider ‘close friends /relatives’,
In a bid to avoid or minimize casualties, you become more vulnerable: the enemy takes advantage of that vulnerability to plague you furthermore because are of the impression that you are either dense, mentally challenged or weak.
I have been a seasoned warrior for sometime now. God trained me in the university of life at the school of suffering and the department of hard knocks. I majored in tribulations and persecutions.
To God’s glory, I have the following degrees:
B. A. – born again: in Salvation (1967): MSc – Master of Situation & Circumstances (1994):
Ph. D – Please help Demonized (1995).
It has been tough for me going through dangerous terrains, falling into pits through avoidable mistakes and suffering from the consequences of ignorance and disobedience.
However, the mercies and grace of God always showed up on time to deliver me from the edge of precipice.
If you are in a pit or at the edge of a precipice, God will show up for you because He loves you and He is faithful even when we are unfaithful .
The long and short of my experiences (painful and pleasant) are that they are the training necessary to mold Godliness in me because :
“The Spirit of the Lord is on me…he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free“(Luke 4:18).
It was necessary for me to be acquainted with grief so that I would be empathetic in ministry. That is the uniqueness of my life and ministry. I am able to identify with /relate to your challenges, because I have been there.
My simplicity is not stupidity. Nor does it give you the right to ride roughshod over me. Those who take me or other Christian ministers for granted, set themselves up for Divine rebuke. GOD will always defend His honor on our lives.
Most Christian Ministers were hardworking high achievers in the secular world before they got conscripted into full-time God’s work. It is a very humbling experience to be brought to a situation where you are unaware whether it’s a raven or a human being that would be sent with sustenance to you.
We have been made nothing in all things to all the people in our world in order to win them to Christ. Although it is sad that some Ministers have abandoned the Spirit of calling and succumbed to the spirit of commerce. There are still many of us who are burdened for the souls that are perishing.
Our Gentleness is founded on strength 💪 and prompted by love for God and for others. Love is the expression of the Divinity in us.
I have no regrets for being in full time God’s work. There is nothing you have that I need for in Christ Jesus, I have all that I need. Simply put6, Christ is my sufficiency.
So please get off your high horse. Pride goes before a fall. There is nothing you have that you were not given. You owe your life to God and without life you would never have been able to achieve anything.
So excuse me if I take exception to your insinuations that because Ministers of God are dependent upon you for sustenance, you have the right to act as a god to us!
Have you not read that God can impeach and replace? And also that He can use stones to do His will if necessary? Why then do you boast in such things as gifts, tithes and offerings?
Your gifts etc. are appreciated and will attract divine blessings in accordance with the Word of God that says: “Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”(Luke 6:38).
Your giving is unto God who richly rewards. Do not despise us for being the channels through which God blesses you. If we reject your gifts, we shut doors to the blessings God would have channeled to you through your gifts to us.
So, be thankful that God in His infinite wisdom placed us in that position to receive your personal gifts to Him. Or have you not read that it is more blessed give than to receive?
You will receive more from God than you gave to His Ministers and ministries. As long as this earth remains, seed time and harvest will not cease. You are so privileged to sow seeds and to expect a bountiful harvest. Because Iam a fertile ground. I have several testimonies confirming that fact that whatever is done to me or for me does return to the doer abundantly.
Perhaps you are ignorant that I am a bonded servant to God- the property of God. My will is absolutely submerged in His will. So, He confirms my words and performs my counsel.
You may think because you have material wealth to display I am poor.
There is no minister of God who is poor. We may appear poor, yet making many rich; having nothing, and yet possessing everything (See 2Cor.6:10).
So please, back off your controlling tactics, it is demonic and bother line witchcraft.
How dare you imply or insinuate that am unemployed and should go and get work because I am in full-time God’s work?
If you are no longer led to give support, please stop.
I was not privy to your arrangement with God, nor did I solicit. It was your decision to give and it is within your rights to stop.
However, you have crossed boundaries by wickedly manipulating others to stop their support as well. How dare you tell them it is time I went into gainful employment? What gave you the idea that I am unemployed?
I excuse your ignorance.
Not that I owe you any explanations, but Let me briefly state here that I started earning an income at age 16 when we lost our parents in order to support my siblings. None of my sibs will say they never were beneficiaries of my hard work. Today, I am thankful to God who made me a Joseph to preserve their lives when it was necessary.
Do not out of ignorance darken counsel.
Because of the death of our parents, I inherited a large family when I was still a child myself. From 1972 to 1994, I worked in secular establishments, until God through drama became my employer.
What makes you think I am jobless? As God’s minister, I am on call 24 hours daily.
While you are asleep, I am prayer – watching over you and yours.
While you are enjoying exotic cuisines, i and many others like me are fasting and praying to God over the issues you shared with us. And so many more. And yet you have the effrontery to imply I am jobless because I do not draw a paycheck as you?
Let me educate you about my Boss-the creator and owner of heaven and earth:
His rewards for the work I do is eternal. And my descendants to a thousand generations are eligible to receive pensions from my work with Him (See Deut. 7:9).
You err in law and in love.
I am in full-time God’s work and am fulfilled and happy doing what God has called and chosen me to do. It is an honor no one can take upon him or her self (Heb. 5:4). Thank You ABBA for the honor of choosing me to serve.
My children are the seeds of the righteous and it is well with them for they are blessed beyond curses and are allergic to manipulations and wicked projections.
Whoever you are, whatever your rank, position, authority or relationship: in accordance with the written Word, God is just: He will trouble whoever troubles us (See 1Thess.1:6).
So please Stay out of our business and thank God that your business is doing well and you have employment.
Stop trying to play sib, ffriends, well wishers against each other: kids against their parents and against each other: it is wickedness.
However, if you persist in your wickedness, “Be assured that a wicked person will not go unpunished, but the offspring of the righteous will escape” (Proverbs 11:21, CEV).
Thank you for your love and concern.
Stop meddling and leave us in God’s hands: He will perfect all that concerns us in His own time and will also accomplish the purpose for our lives.
According to Scriptures, it is God who works in us, both to will and to do of His good pleasure.
And you that busy-body whose feet is quick to run to evil 😈, and is spreading, has spread or will spread malicious tales under the guise of concern: Have you not read that –
God abhors a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, a false witness who pours out lies and a person who stirs up conflict in the community? (See Proverbs 16: 16-19).
All your nefarious actions, manipulation of situations and circumstances shows how bitter and hateful you are. You have been doing these evil deeds under the radar, but God who sees all will continue to protect us and lead us to triumph over your devilry.
However, Bible says that “Calamity will surely overtake the wicked, and those who hate the righteous will be punished“ (Psalm 34:21).
Moreover, Remove the plank in your eyes in order to see clearly to attempt to remove the speck of dust in our eyes. Because your evil deeds were not exposed and judged, you have continued in wanton wickedness.
Today I stand to Confront the evil in you spiritually and so stop you from being the means through which the devil always afflict us.
In unity of faith, we cast out and down, all imaginations, wickedness, evil projections, satanic manipulations, vindictiveness, familial spirits, vengefulness, matriarchal and patriarchal dominant spirits: ancestral evil spirits, jealousy, rivalry, sibling rivalry, confusion, self importance, self righteousness, error, divination, sorceries and every other things that are exalting themselves against the knowledge of God in my life and families.
I release the fear and dread of God to silence all satanic oppositions and human agents of the 👿 devil who are disguised as well wishers.
I command a stop to all satanic activities directed against all that pertains and relates to me.
All the evil 😈 works that are active or dormant are to self-destruct now.
I affirm that God has caused all things to work for our good therefore from now, whenever you open your mouth to curse us, like Balaam you will bless us instead.
Like the horse of Balaam, your trusted support will cave under you whenever you embark on an evil journey against us.
Like Eliab, who was angry and jealous of David’s anointing and ordination and served under King David, so shall you be under service to me as I serve under my God given assignment as a royal priest of God.
As treacherous Ahitophel’s wise counsel was rejected by rebellious Absalom, so shall your counsel be rejected by even the ungodly and any other person you offer counsel.
As Judah was caught out in his lies and deception against Tamar, so shall your lies and deception show you up as deceiver: and bless us by abundantly restoring to us all that your evil did stopped .
All soul ties to you are hereby severed. You are subdued and restrained: perchance the goodness of God will lead you to genuine repentance.
I thank the Almighty God for the honor of your call upon my life and your covenant of long life, prosperity and eternal relationship between You, me and my descendants. You oh God will continue to glorify your name in our lives. Confirm my words and perform my counsel, perfect all that concerns us, in Jesus Christ matchless name.
I close by affirming Psalm 112[a]:
1 Praise the Lord.[b]Blessed are those who fear the Lord, who find great delight in his commands.
2 Their children will be mighty in the land; the generation of the upright will be blessed.
3 Wealth and riches are in their houses, and their righteousness endures forever.
4 Even in darkness light dawns for the upright, for those who are gracious and compassionate and righteous.
5 Good will come to those who are generous and lend freely, who conduct their affairs with justice.
6 Surely the righteous will never be shaken; they will be remembered forever.
7 They will have no fear of bad news;
their hearts are steadfast, trusting in the Lord.
8 Their hearts are secure, they will have no fear; in the end they will look in triumph on their foes.
9 They have freely scattered their gifts to the poor, their righteousness endures forever; their horn[c] will be lifted high in honor.
10 The wicked will see and be vexed,
they will gnash their teeth and waste away; the longings of the wicked will come to nothing.
