The trending news all over the social and mainstream media is the exposure of the double lives of some men of God; this should not come to you as a shock neither a surprise! The One who chose them out of the world into his vineyard has already spoken about it thousands of years ago.
Hear what he said about the pastors and the prophets, “I have seen also in the prophets a horrible thing: they commit adultery, and walk in lies: they strengthen also the hands of evildoers, that none doth return from his wickedness: they are all of them unto me as Sodom, and the inhabitants thereof as Gomorrah.” Jer.23:14The lust of the flesh has taken over the original plan of God for his servants, despite Jesus admonition to his followers not to look at either a woman or a man lustfully. The negative reports published against men and women of God, who are suppose to be populating the Kingdom of God before the end comes, is sending wrong signals of Christianity to those the Evangelists are trying to pull out of the fire of evil.
Every believer, in whatever position he or she find themselves in the Church, should always remember that they are an advertising signboard for Christ. Living a double life that negates the positive aura you are supposed to radiate, affects the unsaved soul, diminishes godly values and attributes which attract people to the Kingdom of God. Such servants are often overwhelmed because of the material acquisition of ministry, they see themselves as popular people in the society; often hiding in that guise to deceive women.
“Am I a God at hand, saith the LORD, and not a God afar off? Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the LORD. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the LORD.”
I have heard what the prophets said, that prophesy lies in my name, saying, I have dreamed, I have dream! How long shall this be in the heart of the prophets that prophesy lies? yea, they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart; “ Jerm 23:23-25
The devil is often on the trail of servants of God who are proud because of their material or anointing flow. His principal instrument is adultery and lies; two of the most hated instrument in the Kingdom of God.
You who follow your pastor passionately, beware! When his secrets are exposed, the shock will throw you either out of faith or keep you in faith. Jesus Christ admonished us to do what the servant of God says and not do what they do. Almighty God is not happy with the conduct of his servants on earth, he want a more pro-active vineyard team dedicated to gathering his ripe crops. Depart from evil and change your lifestyle to that which the Father would be pleased with in the kingdom.
Do not stop praying for the saints that are in the land and the gathering of the sheep of his pastures.
Phillips Eteng, Evangelist.
