Blow Your High!

Hey Y’all!

I had to post one more song for today by Lecrae feat. Canon called Blow Your High!  This song is dedicated to those addicted to drugs (specifically), but I also think that those who use and abuse alcohol as well should be included in this group because any abuse of drugs and alcohol leads to death.

Image result for depressionI believe that people use these things to numb the pain, to dull the senses and escape reality. Why do I say this? Well…I remember when there was a phase where I used to club with my friends a number of years ago (*shock* Sherline you went to the CLUB???!!!! — Yes I did), I’d say about 10 years ago….because I really enjoyed dancing; however, alcohol was in the building and that obviously was not a good thing, though, I never drank to get drunk since I was the designated driver, I knew that I was not in the right place at the right time. I love dancing to music so clubbing with my friends was a stress reliever, but then I remember this one time which was the last time I went to the club, I had heard shots fired outside the club that I knew God was telling me to get the hell out of there. I think that I was going through a stage of depression, but I myself don’t know why I was feeling that way. I guess I was feeling numb because I felt a lot of pressure to “fit in” maybe, and so many things were going on in my life at that time that I don’t think I slept well. I experienced nightmares that caused me to feel out of it at times.

Image result for depressionA do remember that a guy had tried to attack me sexually while I was in the library at my university but I fought him off of me and I think that’s why I wasn’t sleeping all that well because the incident would repeat itself over and over again that I began to feel terrified of going to university. Eventually, I got over it, but I never told anybody about the incident. I guess I was experiencing PTSD. Despite all of that, I managed to escape the attempted rape incident but I struggled to trust people specifically males in particular. I began to feel fear because of how violated I felt with respect to that incident. Well, that’s just one out of many incidences but I praise God for protecting me from malicious people that I’ve encountered in my life. Sometimes you go through a traumatic event and it can skew the way you view people if you remain traumatized be such events forever. Not every person is out to “get you”, but at the same time, you can never be so sure. I think also the fact that I lived with my grandparents who were diplomats, I have encountered and been exposed to having seen evil people first hand at the government level that I often wonder if I have jaded lens when I see people, but I also think that the Lord has helped me see things and people for what they truly are like and to be mindful that sometimes we as people live in a bubble thinking that “all is well in the world” when evil is right in your front yard but you’re just not looking at it for what it is. We need to be more discerning of the times we are in. Not everything is rosy and just peachy. We need to understand that the world as we know it is getting darker and darker each day with the things we allow to happen with our eyes wide shut. Ignorance is not bliss, but I pray that as Christians, we will have stronger voices to the injustices we see and that as a community we become heard and become destiny and generation builders that will protect those that need to be protected.

[ God the Refuge of His People and Conqueror of the Nations ] [ To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of the sons of Korah. A Song for Alamoth. ] God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble.

Faith is what builds us, but Actions are what protects us.

Press through in Your Storms of Life

Hello Everybody!

Mississauga Bus wading through the water

Sometimes, we face storms in our lives and crazy things happen that could either lead you to sink or swim during your storms of life. I remember a few years ago, in the Summer of July 2013, my sister and I were caught up in a Flash flood in Toronto due to some heavy and unprecedented rains that Toronto had never seen before. At that time I had a little blue Toyota Yaris as my car and I was the driver. I had been waiting at the station to pick up my twin sister when I noticed that the rain started to become really heavy. By the time my sister arrived at the parking lot to be driven home, the water was already ankle deep. I told her to hurry up and get into the car because I was going to drive us home like my life depended on it. I can tell you that I had had a really bad feeling that if we delayed any further, it was going to be a struggle to get back home. So I started to drive like crazy in the now knee deep waters to get home. I was high on adrenaline because I felt like the Holy Spirit was shouting in my head to not stop and keep going no matter what because now the rain had started to downpour like a crazy freak monsoon storm.

My Blue Toyota Yaris looked like this model – The car that weathered the storm.

As I was driving I told my sister to start praying because this was gonna be a rough ride home. I had to drive up a hill, down a slope and when I got to an intersection, there was a massive river flowing fast like a monsoon river that you’d wonder if you could even cross it unscathed. I was looking at other drivers and I saw a woman behind me in a big SUV freaking out. I too wanted to freak out but I was already on “Faith Mode” and high on adrenaline that I kept saying “I’m not going to die today!”. My sister was scared if not terrified too, because this was unbelievable! I said to her I’m driving through this river and I’m not stopping because I knew that if I stopped, water would seep into the car and the car would be stalled and then we’d probably drown in the car and our car was a really small one at that. I was on the “I don’t think so!!!” mode. So, I pressed down on the accelerator and just when you thought we would be swept up by the severe current, we miraculously crossed the huge intersection without any problems. Big cars that were behind us saw what I did and I’m pretty sure some of the drivers thought I was crazy to even attempt to cross this tsunami of an intersection, but I did it anyway trusting the voice of the Holy Spirit that was screaming in my head and in my heart. Something told me that if I did this, others would have the courage to follow and their lives would be saved, so I noticed in the rear view mirror that other cars started to follow closely behind me with courage and did the same thing. The terrified woman that I had passed earlier was right behind me following my tail.

Image result for flood

The water was now window deep, OMG! I prayed to God in the car alongside my sister and asked the Lord to not allow any water to enter or seep into the car or into the engine. Would you believe that throughout the whole ordeal, no water seeped into the car! God is amazing and miraculous!

Anyways, continuing on with the story, I was now window deep in murky brown water and I was still high on adrenaline thinking “We shall live and not die!” . I could not believe that in Canada, we could experience such floods that we typically see in Asian countries or countries that are prone to floods etc. I guess you live through something new everyday! lol. 😀 I kept my foot on the accelerator and though we were now window deep in water, the small frame of my car was starting to bop about up and down drawing us closer to the opposing lane which was dangerous. I turned my steering wheel closer to the curb so that I wouldn’t hit any car and prayed to God to keep me on the straight path.

Image result for flood toronto

Image result for jesus christ quotes for facebookMy sister was praying alongside me. The one thing that the Holy Spirit impressed on my heart as I was driving was to not stop and keep going because if we stopped, the car would stall and then we’d be in grave danger of drowning. The Holy Spirit also impressed on my heart that I would lead others to safety if I followed His instructions on how and where to drive. So I was looking at my rear view mirror and I saw the terrified woman in the SUV following close behind me. She noticed that wherever I went, I was still able to keep going. She was following me like her life depended on it. The cars behind her followed suit. I also noticed that the cars that stopped ended up being stuck on the sidewalk and water started to fill up those cars. I remember seeing a woman stuck in her big range rover and she saw my little car pressing through this torrential downpour. She looked terrified and amazed that I could still keep moving despite everything that was going on.

Image result for flood toronto

My sister and I were high on adrenaline. We had Christian music playing in the car but we had to switch it off just to preserve the battery of the car. We needed everything we had to get out of this floody mess. There came a point where now half of the car was window deep in water and I’m still pressing my foot on the accelerator real hard because the water was now like a rushing stream trying to pull us with the current. We had to go up a hill and that was one of the most difficult climbs I’ve ever had with my foot on the accelerator. Once I got up the hill, I noticed that the cars that had followed me were still pressing forward with me as the leader following the Holy Spirit’s leading. I noticed that the cars that copied my driving movements were able to get to safety and those that stopped ended up stuck and were flooded beyond comprehension leaving people to abandon their cars and swim in the rough brown waters. I was determined not to swim in that muck that day, hell no! I kept on pressing forward towards the goal… never looking back because my aim was to survive! I’m too young to die lol 😀

I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

We finally made it over the hill and when I got to Mississauga, there was less water on the roads and the flash flood had subsided. My sister and I were greatly relieved. I had hurt my right foot because I had pressed on the accelerator with such force that I had twisted it. I didn’t really care because I was now safe and sound. The cars that had followed me from behind had passed me and some of the drivers had waved at me saying “Thank you” although I don’t think I did anything to warrant that lol. One driver thought I was crazy since I was driving such a small car but was happy that they followed me the whole time because now they were safe as well. I was high on adrenaline and I had never heard the Holy Spirit speak to me so loudly like that before until that day. Mind you, many of the cars that got stuck were huge in size and had more horsepower than my car, but somehow, they were the ones that got stuck and my little Blue Toyota Yaris was the car that prevailed through the storm and led the pack to safety.

Image result for flood torontoI feel like through that experience, God showed me that some may trust in their chariots (cars) some may trust in horses (horse power of the cars) by those that remember the name of the Lord, they will prevail. I was totally God-reliant in that situation and my God saved my sister and I from drowning in that crazy flash flood that we experienced some years ago. I always get amazed at God’s saving grace in my “near death” experiences. It just goes to show you that God is the One who Saves especially when you put your 100% trust in Him. He is the way maker. When there seems to be no other way, He is the One that charts the course, He makes a way for you when there seems to be no way. I thought my sister and I would drown in that crazy freak storm, but God showed me through the power of the Holy Spirit to follow His leading and He took me and others that followed me to safety. The power of God is real my friends. Do not underestimate the voice of the Holy Spirit. How do you know when the Holy Spirit is talking to you? That supposed “gut instinct” that you feel at times is most likely the Holy Spirit talking to you. The Holy Spirit has a way of impressing a thought into your subconscious making you feel led to do something that seems right but you just don’t know how to explain it. You just feel led to do it because that is how you move by Faith.

[ By Faith We Understand ] Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Go Train trying to move in the flood

So in all that you do, dedicate everything that you have and do to the Lord. His ways are higher than our ways, and when you think that you know better, the Lord will show you how His ways are higher than our ways of thinking. It takes a lot to move by Faith, but faith is what opens the doors of opportunity in your life. Faith takes you to places that others would have missed because they relied on their own reasoning. Faith is what makes a way out of no way for you when there seems to be none. Faith opens doors that seem shut closed so my thought for you today is to keep Trusting God even in the most craziest and dire of circumstances, and He’ll show you where your Faith in Him can lead you. He led me to still waters and safety so my prayer is that you continue to pursue God and let Him direct your path and He will make your path straight for you, Amen! God Bless You everybody! 😀

In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.

We Live As Kings – Imagine!

Hello People!

Image result for Jesus Christ quotesI just had to post this song by WLAK -We. Live. As. Kings. called (Imagine).  I think that we need to know that if we are born again as “Christians” who are true followers of “Christ Our King”, then we have now been reborn with a new identity. Our Identity is to now to be Joint Heirs with Jesus Christ but some of us don’t know this because most people remain in bondage to sin. Sin separates us from embracing our true identities when we go against our true Christ-like natures. It reminds me of a saying that my previous pastor used to say is that “A life without Christ is a Crisis”. We need to know that in order to be a King, you’ve got to act like one based on the best example; Jesus Christ. Jesus showed us that we need to operate in a realm where we can express great compassion, empathy, justice, forgiveness, righteous judgment, peace and love in ALL our actions. Love is the greatest of all these mentioned because Jesus Christ is Love personified.

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

If we can’t demonstrate “love personified”, then we have fallen short of the Glory of God. The world knows that we are known to be Christians by our display of “Love” because Jesus is Love personified.  In all that we do, let us purpose to demonstrate this love in our actions at the Jesus Christ level. It definitely won’t be easy, but that is what we must strive for if we are His followers.

Romans 8 (NIV)

Image result for Jesus Christ quotesLife Through the Spirit

Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you[a] free from the law of sin and death. For what the law was powerless to do because it was weakened by the flesh,[b] God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh to be a sin offering.[c]And so he condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.

Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires. The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace. The mind governed by the flesh is hostile to God; it does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so. Those who are in the realm of the flesh cannot please God.

You, however, are not in the realm of the flesh but are in the realm of the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, they do not belong to Christ. 10 But if Christ is in you, then even though your body is subject to death because of sin, the Spirit gives life[d] because of righteousness. 11 And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of[e] his Spirit who lives in you.

Image result for Jesus Christ quotes12 Therefore, brothers and sisters, we have an obligation—but it is not to the flesh, to live according to it. 13 For if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live.

14 For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God.15 The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship.[f] And by him we cry, “Abba,[g] Father.” 16 The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. 17 Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.

Present Suffering and Future Glory

18 I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. 19 For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed. 20 For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope 21 that[h] the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the freedom and glory of the children of God.

22 We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. 23 Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the first fruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption to sonship, the redemption of our bodies. 24 For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what they already have? 25 But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.

26 In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. 27 And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.

28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who[i] have been called according to his purpose. 29 For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters.30 And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.

31 What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us,who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? 33 Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. 34 Who then is the one who condemns?No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? 36 As it is written:

“For your sake we face death all day long;
    we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”[j]

37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[k] neither the present nor the future, nor any powers,39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Isn’t it wonderful to know that nothing has the power to separate us from the love of God? That’s just amazing! It is my prayer that I learn to grow to show this level of love in my actions as a Christian in my daily life for as long as I live. I pray that this song by WLAK called Imagine will bless your spirit today. God bless you everybody! 😀

Lord Be With Me!

Hey Ya’ll!

I just had to post this song by Lecrae feat. Johnta Austin called  Lord Be With Me. The beat is so off the hook! Honestly, when I think of what I’ve been through for the past year being in hospital, getting out of hospital, going to rehab, getting out of rehab, and still walking through the process of recovery from the sickness I endured (encephalitis – a terrible sickness that is an inflammation of the brain that causes short-term memory loss), I can truly say, that the Lord did walk with me through the darkest valley of the shadow of death.

Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

Related imageIt’s a miracle that I’m still alive lol! 😀  I’ve heard that some people take years to recover from what I’ve been through, but for me, my recovery has only been a short few months to almost a full year which has astounded some of my medical doctors that I’ve visited. I remember being asked so many questions when I was at the rehab hospital by student doctors because I was an anomaly of a patient, and my recovery speed was quite unusual to say the least for my age group, but all I can say is that it’s because of GOD. God is my healer. He is the One that healed me as far as I’m concerned. Some trust in chariots, some in horses, but I will remember the name of the Lord and so should you when you go through a crisis or a series of crises.

Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.

The road to my recovery, although astounding to the doctors I visit from time-to-time for my follow-ups; it has not been easy, but with God on your side, all things become possible.

Image result for hope quotes I do not know what crisis you may be facing today, but just remember, that you have God on your side at all times. No matter how bleak your situation may seem, no matter how discouraged you may feel, even if you feel hopeless at times, just know that God is on your side. I admit that when I was going through rehab, I was quite frustrated and irritated at times because losing some of your memories feels like losing a big piece of yourself, and everyone around you is hoping you’ll recover those pieces through hard work and training. It was never easy, but to God be the Glory, I’m still alive and well, and still persevering through this “storm of life” to regain that which I lost. It’s a great thing that I didn’t lose my long-term memories because that would have been devastating to say the least. Sometimes, when you think you are in the worst-case scenario, you begin to see that you really aren’t and then you begin to appreciate that which you do have. So when you’re going through something terrible, remember the things that you do have around you and learn to appreciate it with respect and value. You don’t know what you’ve got ’till it’s gone.

Time is a gift and knowing that I could have died a few months ago, makes me appreciate each an everyday that God gives me to see another day. We can’t take life for granted. We can’t take people for granted and you can’t take the time that you have here on Earth for granted. Time waits for no man, but you can utilize the time that you do have now and make the best out of it. Stop putting off saying important things to people you care about and take advantage of the time you have now to say what you want to say. Tomorrow is definitely not promised because tomorrow is a gift from God. 

To finish off this post, I have two songs to bless your spirit today. They are both by Lecrae so I pray that these songs bless your spirit today!

The next song is also by Lecrae feat. Tori Kelly called I’ll Find You. I think this song is also off the hook. I pray that these songs bless your spirit today. God bless you everybody! 😀

Necromancy: Dead Men/Women Tell No Tales!

Hello Everybody!

Today, I want to talk about the issue of consulting mediums and/or necromancers (fortune tellers, magicians, warlocks, witches,  etc) in order to talk to those who are dead or have passed on for consultation with regards to what will happen in your future. There are many people out there who want to either know what will happen in their future or would like to speak to those who seemingly have the ability to consult the “dearly departed” on things regarding their futures. The Bible is very explicit on the subject of necromancy in that it is strictly forbidden to do so.

Image result for discernment

Image result for discernmentMany gullible people consult mediums and the like seeking to hear “a word” from their dearly departed not knowing that they are engaging in the communion of consulting with “Familiar Spirits”. A Familiar Spirit is a demonic spirit that is able to imitate the appearance/ image and voice of someone you know. Grieving individuals tend to be the most susceptible and most vulnerable people to consult with a medium/witch and/or warlock etc, all because they have not come to terms with the finality of their loved-ones death. It is so important to have or seek emotional support from other people that can be with you during your time of grief. This doesn’t mean that you should then go out and seek out people who can connect you to the “spiritual world” just in order to hear from the “other side”. If you aren’t wise, you will open yourself up and your entire family up to some serious demonic influences that can further break your family apart and also ultimately cause you to lose your mind if you aren’t careful. This type of activity opens up doors for blood-line sins to pass on from one generation to the next creating a string of generational curses that grow stronger and stronger from each generation and won’t break until such activities are confessed to and renounced in order to be broken through your confession of having engaged in such activities that contradict the Word of God before God.

There is a reason why we shouldn’t seek to consult from individuals that claim to have access to the “spiritual realm of the dead” who can communicate to you the thoughts of those who have dearly departed from the land of the living. First of all it is a sin, and second of all, you will find yourself in bondage to demoniacally oppressive spirits that can pass onto the next generation in your family line as a generational curse if you fail to renounce and stop engaging in such activities. The types of curses when consulting with the dead or using witchcraft and/or demonic spirits as mediums to consult on things concerning your future manifest in different types of ways in each family.


Break free from every generational curse operating in your life!

I know that in my family there was a generational curse operating on both sides where the twins would either die young or die after achieving a huge feat. My sister and I and my twin cousins are the longest surviving twins so far in the family. I think that the reason why my sister and I are the longest surviving  twins so far is because we both got saved at the age of 16 and renounced any participation known or unknown of anything with respect to the use of witchcraft within the family (generationally speaking) whether indirectly or directly involved in anything that includes any member who may have used the Ouija board, voodoo, practiced or participated directly or indirectly in anything witchcraft related or the black arts, reading of horoscopes, palm reading, using tarot cards, transcendental meditation, fortune telling, consulting or participating in séances or consulting with witchdoctors etc, engaging in magic (black or white) including the ones you see at circuses/entertainment events or “magic shows”, hypnosis/hypnotism, ghost-related games etc and the list goes on. If you or any family member have engaged in any of the activities I have listed above, trust me when I say that a curse is operating in your life known or unbeknownst to you if you have not renounced nor forsaken your involvement in the practice and usage of such activities in your life.

Curses can manifest in different ways such as infirmities or sicknesses that pass on from one generation to the next, continual nightmares, insomnia, demonic oppression manifested physically (i.e. losing control of your body, levitation, body twisting on it’s own, cuts and bruises appearing on your body out of nowhere, physical deformities that appear during birth, demonic possession/oppression etc etc…the list goes on). Again I say, it is strictly forbidden to consult with a “familiar spirit” or calling on “the Ancestors” by any means from a necromancer/fortune teller/witch and/or warlock etc. It doesn’t matter which country you come from, they have many names in different cultures for such individuals that use witchcraft in some form as a method to devise some form of spiritual communication with a demonic/spiritual force(s) to “enlighten” you about your future by telling you things that they seemingly already know about your past. Do not get suckered into this!

Think of this story concerning Saul who consulted with a medium at Endor.

1 Samuel 28:3-14 (NIV)

Saul and the Medium at Endor

Now Samuel was dead, and all Israel had mourned for him and buried him in his own town of Ramah. Saul had expelled the mediums and spiritists from the land.

The Philistines assembled and came and set up camp at Shunem, while Saul gathered all Israel and set up camp at Gilboa. When Saul saw the Philistine army, he was afraid; terror filled his heart. He inquired of the Lord, but the Lord did not answer him by dreams or Urim or prophets.Saul then said to his attendants, “Find me a woman who is a medium,so I may go and inquire of her.”

“There is one in Endor,” they said.

So Saul disguised himself, putting on other clothes, and at night he and two men went to the woman. “Consult a spirit for me,” he said, “and bring up for me the one I name.”

But the woman said to him, “Surely you know what Saul has done. He has cut off the mediums and spiritists from the land. Why have you set a trap for my life to bring about my death?”

Related image10 Saul swore to her by the Lord, “As surely as the Lord lives, you will not be punished for this.”

11 Then the woman asked, “Whom shall I bring up for you?”

“Bring up Samuel,” he said.

12 When the woman saw Samuel, she cried out at the top of her voice and said to Saul, “Why have you deceived me? You are Saul!”

13 The king said to her, “Don’t be afraid. What do you see?”

The woman said, “I see a ghostly figure[a] coming up out of the earth.”

14 “What does he look like?” he asked.

“An old man wearing a robe is coming up,” she said.

Then Saul knew it was Samuel, and he bowed down and prostrated himself with his face to the ground.

As you can see from this passage, the woman didn’t say that “she saw Samuel”, Saul simply assumed that it was Samuel based on the description the medium had given to him. The saying is true when we say that “ASSUMPTIONS ARE DANGEROUS”!!!!!! 

Assumptions do not confirm facts. I repeat: Assumptions do not confirm facts! 

Image result for discernment

Image result for discernmentOn the flip side, although I have been stressing the fact that we should not consult mediums, witches etc etc because of their usage of demonic powers/spirits to foretell you your future, God has a people that are “genuine individuals” who are able to prophesy of things that are yet to come who are inspired by the Holy Spirit to speak when given the “unction to function” in the gifts of the Holy Spirit (specifically).  They tend to be more accurate and specific when relaying instructions or interpreting visions and/or dreams. With anything that is genuinely Godly, be mindful of the fact that the devil will aways create a counterfeit so what we Christians need to know is that we need to build a high level of discernment in order to be able to distinguish the difference between a “fake” versus the “genuine article”. In order to build that level of sensitivity to be able to tell the difference, you need to understand that when God is confirming something through an individual by prophesying to you about a specific event or something concerning your destiny, whatever is spoken should be confirmed by His Word, or whatever is spoken to you should not contradict what is written in the Bible. Just because an individual prophesy’s to you doesn’t mean that you have to accept what was spoken right away. I always believe in proceeding with caution to whomever speaks over your life.

For example: Someone can’t “claim” to tell you that you will marry a so-and-so if the person that they claim you will marry is already married to someone else. God does not contradict Himself so it is important to be able to tell the difference between a genuine prophet(tess) from a false one. I also want to make it clear that true Godly prophets/prophetess or prophetic intercessors with a measure of the prophetic gifting are the genuine article of individuals that God uses to prophesy of events that will occur in your life through:

1. Dream Interpretations – (think of Joseph in Genesis 40:8);

2. Prophetic Instructions for future events – think of Noah and the Ark story (Genesis 6:13-22);

and/or by

3. Prophetic Visions  think of Abraham (Genesis 15:1- [ The Lord’s Covenant With Abram ] After this, the word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision: “Do not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield, your very great reward.”).

Another example of prophetic visions can be found in the following scriptures:

And God spoke to Israel in a vision at night and said, “Jacob! Jacob!” “Here I am,” he replied.

he said, “Listen to my words: “When there is a prophet among you, I, the Lord, reveal myself to them in visions, I speak to them in dreams.

Go into your prayer closet and seek God to confirm if whatever the so-called “man” or “woman” of God that spoke to you said was true. God has a way of confirming His Word to His people. He also has a way of showing you when someone is deceiving you. You need to develop that level of intimacy on your own to hear God for yourself rather than become overly-reliant and needy on someone else’s relationship with God to speak to you all the time concerning your future. God didn’t make us to be people reliant, He created us to be God-reliant individuals! God can use people to propel us in our destiny, but at the end of the day, God is the One who holds our futures in His Hands so that is why it is important to be God-reliant since people can fail us at anytime.

In conclusion, to further study on this topic, I recommend reading this book by Perry Stone called Exposing Satan’s Playbook which is available on to purchase. I think he does a really great in-depth analysis of certain types of curses, hindrances, habits and strategies to overcome satanic influences, powers and weapons used against you and your family known or unbeknownst to you.

Essentially, in order to be successful in combating such demoniacally inspired attacks against you and your family’s life, you need to build on gaining more knowledge concerning things with respect to Spiritual Warfare. Read books on the topic of Spiritual Warfare so that you become wiser and aware of how you can pray effectively to not only protect yourself from spiritual/physical and or verbal attacks but to also build on having the wisdom of knowing what to do when you are confronted with a battle concerning unseen forces operating in your life trying to destroy you, your mind and your family’s lives.

If you would like some more book recommendations, you can always comment on this post down below and I’ll respond to you as soon as I can. If you seek prayer over your personal circumstances, you can also holla down below in the comments.

Knowledge is the key to strategic spiritual warfare, without it, you will continue to remain circling in the realm of defeat if you choose to continue operating in the realm of sheer ignorance. Ignorance is NOT bliss because Knowledge is Power. Knowledge can deliver you from what your feared.

I sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears.

I pray that this post blesses your spirit today. God bless you everybody! 😀
