Confirmation that you are walking in your purpose is when you get on the enemies radar. This is especially true for faith-based businesses.
The enemy recently sent one of his disciples to my social media page with a message for me. It said “I got connected to you in my prayers, hit me up in my DM immediately is very urgent, There are spiritual blockages that’s been in you for sometime now” This message came from someone who identified herself as a “priestess”.
First of all, if she had really understood who she was targeting she would never have tried such a tactic. I don’t play at religion, I’m not even religious. I am a servant of the most High God. I serve the Creator, the one who holds the universe together. I am His, child, loved and highly favored. So I am not confused, I know who I am and who my father is.
She first tried the tactic of trying to connect with me through the use of religious language, “in my prayers”. I am sure she prays, but do we pray to the same God, “No”. Because if we did she would have understood that my God is not like her god. My God speaks to me through His Word, and those who follow His Word. If you are not a follower of His Word, then nothing, no sacred knowledge that you have is important to me, no matter how “urgent”.
Then the next tactic: applying urgency to see if that get’s me to meet with her. That is a salesman’s tactic that taps into fear. Fear of missing out (FOMO), fear of lacking knowledge. For it to have worked I would have had to believe and trust that she had special knowledge to impart. Why would God give her this knowledge to give to me? He has access to my heart and my mind. I am surrounded by His people, because I fellowship with them. They are godly people who hear from Him daily. If he wanted to give me knowledge, he would use one of His own? I believe she could have heard something about me, but from her master not mine. Mine talks to me directly or uses His people not the enemies’ people to send me messages.
Lastly she tried using a piece of generalized knowledge to peak my curiosity. “Blockages”, what is that? There are some things that I have been in prayer about for awhile and am patiently waiting for God to answer. Who doesn’t have areas of struggle or concern? Whose life is so perfect that there are no areas that you are working on, or frustrated with, or are in prayer about? Being a Christian doesn’t mean everything is perfect and honky dory here in Christianland. We are in this world, with its many tribulations, but we are not of this world. We belong to an eternal kingdom. We are the ultimate realists, not delusional. So yes things are not perfect, and won’t be until Heaven. Her knowledge about some vague “blockage” is just a smoke screen to get me and others to view her as having some secret knowledge.
Listen, don’t fall for these kind of appeals on social media. Know God, through his word. Don’t do like Saul did, when he consulted the witch of Endor (1 Samuel 28). Do instead like Nehemiah did when he refused to be pulled away from the work God had called him to do (Neh 6:3), he “ sent messengers to them with this reply: “I am carrying on a great project and cannot go down. Why should the work stop while I leave it and go down to you?” These mediums, psychics, and witches can only know what their master has told them. That information is to enslave you and not bring you health, healing or success. Consult with your Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and with Him alone to have true success in this life and the one to come.
Have you had similar appeals emailed to you or posted on your social media? How have you handled them?
