PUTTING ON A SHOW, WHO IS WATCHING?


Any body can put up a show, creating the right scene, pictures, props, story line, cast and narratives. Mastering the game of acting from victim to hero from happy to sad. There are those operating various scenes, those with the script and those behind the scene. The question is who is watching, are they asking questions or merely going with the flow surrounded by actors and cannot tell reality from fiction?

"As Paul said,you put up with it easily enough. And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness".[2 Cor. 11:14-15]

Deception no matter how it is portrayed is deception. In the last days expect more but help yourself by asking questions.Deception are acts to propagate, beliefs of things that are not true usually omissions, half truth or a slice of truth. It is covered up by distraction, camouflaging, or fooling others with the disguise of an appearance to create an impression

"Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils"; [1 Tim. 4:1]

"For there shall arise false Christ's, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect". [Matthew 24:24].

Search the scriptures. A personal relationship with the Holy Ghost thrives when deliberate time is assigned to search the scriptures. In desperate times, deceiving the very elect would require strategic dissimilation. Put your entire trust in the word of God not on the word of man. Man has extreme limitations. This cannot be compared with our Sovereign God who is spirit and must be worshipped in truth.

I urge you to be observant. This requires believers to watch and pray. So in your excitement, look around you. If you cannot ask questions then something is definitely wrong. Jesus asked, ‘What will it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his own soul?’ You have the answers.

How do you know deception when all the boxes are ticked?

"If you cannot ask questions then something is definitely wrong. Jesus asked, ‘What will it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his own soul?’ You have the answers." It is true, we have our answers in the bible. The words of Jeremiah ring so true.. " The prophets prophesy lies, the priests rule by their own authority, and my people love it this way. But what will you do in the end?" The bible and the bible alone contains the word of God- that word is Jesus Christ. "My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. "John 10:27 The only true way to hear Jesus is to read and believe what is written in your own bible above all other.

Pastor, this is so timely. I have been so inspired by your blog. Our focus is to turn our attention to God and not put our trust in God. I was a member of CE for many years so I can relate to what you are saying. People can easily take advantage of others using the word and we see that today, but thank God, being born again is a personal relationship with Christ, not with any man of God. We look into Jesus the author and finisher of our faith, not unto man. Thank you pastor we live you dy
D
Deji
Frank the best way to know deception is to know the word for yourself. The Spirit if God cannot contradict itself. When you are in a church and things are not right, go on your knees and ask for directions. Remember the bible says in the last days there will be men that come in his name, but deny all form of godliness. I will give you an example. The bible clearly states that a teacher of the word that cannot lead or take care of him home had no business leading a church. If you have one like that then one box is unticked, and the next step is to check with the Spirit of God within you. We have to come off the sge where people follow others blindly. Get to the word yourself and he will guide you.

These are the last days where the love of many will wax cold. It's very easy for Christians to be programmed into fools by swapping their thinking faculties with someone else's ideology! The word of God is truth and it's the only ingredient that makes us wise. Don't be railroaded by all the glamour, lift the bonnet and see God for yourself - thank you Pastor

Deji, Great reply! These are very obvious pointers to deception but God's people are decieved because the lack personal knowlege and revelation of the scriptures.

Wow ...I have prayed for months for you. You are trully an amazing, and 'annointed' and blessed Woman of God. You are a lady. When people expected you to react, as things were said about you publictly, for all of us to hear and judge, as some were rejoicing, many were crying for you, you kept your cool, and allowed God to take over. For years, I cried for you, asking God to give you more grace. I always knew, no married woman can tolerate raising her kids all by herself, and live like they are single again, while married. God's hand is mighty upon you, even as you embark on this new journey of life. I love you and i continue to pray for you.

I hope i will be able to deliver exactly what i'm trying to express here by the time i'm through. Silence, is said to be golden, no doubt but in certain circumstances. My honest view is, as my bible rightly tells me, there are times and seasons and thus, a time for everything under the sun. There are times to be silent and i believe a time to "address" issues. I used the word, address here because some of us are under the erroneous impression that when we are not silent about certain issues, we quarrel, shout, get physical over it. No! It has become rather heartbreaking to observe that a lot of us no longer watch out for each other genuinely by telling the truth to one another. As i write, i see things crumbling all around us and for those directly involved, it's business as usual. Everyone is pretending and acting as though they do not see, notice and observe. Hiding under the guise of "silence" which is actually fear (under these circumstances) of being termed a rebel or losing what we think they are enjoying. I will bring it closer home, you have an organisation, where activities are structured but a lot of things are handled wrongly, funds are misappropriated, a lot of lies are peddled, figures are falsified, a lot of eye service going on, misrepresentations are made, .... Is it really right, for those in the know to be silent and watch the organisation fall apart bit by bit, slowly but without a doubt, surely? I watch silently too as it all crumbles, i watch the hypocrisy play out, i watch as people are so afraid to air their honest views but rather choose to gather in clusters to discuss them, while those who can't bear the above, leave. I watch as fear of man seems to supersede the fear of God. I do not write as a judge as i am in no way qualified to write or act as one in these matters but strongly believe what is right to be right and standing for, "the truth can never be sold". Silence, in the face of the truth can be very destructive in the long run.

Thanks a lot pastor. There is a pastor in Calabar where I live, this pastor asked a brother to give fake testimony so that members of the congregation will believe and do what so ever he says and want them to do. As far as deception in the church is concern, it is fellow believers who made themselves willing tools for this evil to continue. As a junior pastor in my former church, my GO's wife once told me that in ministry, you must support what the GO does -GOOD OR BAD. I agree with you, that we should listen to God rather than men and this is only possible if we study the bible and let God's Spirit speak to us. God bless. .

We need to go back to what's most important as the body of Christ, go back to our 1st love, the Lord Jesus Christ and stop living to please man. I love a very strong point you made that any organisation being run where it is in my word's a 'Taboo' to ask questions, that organisation is suspicious. Even the disciples asked Jesus questions from time to time when they didn't understand his parables and he didn't start tagging them rebels or announcing in church that no one should deal with them. He provided answers. After such heavy investments, why won't people ask questions? This whole thing is so sad. May the love of God continually burn in our hearts.

'God who comforts us in all our affliction so that we will be able to comfort those who are in any affliction with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God'.

I am glad you are back on your feet to do what you were born for: to lead men to the true light.

I bless the name of the Lord for leading me to this blog. I have sought after you on all social media platforms and got led to find you here. I've prayed for you and trusted God that you've stayed strengthened through the trials Pastor Anita. Praise God for the His strength defined in your ability to put up a a blog site that caters to women and men who need solutions in various facets of life. Questions do linger in the hearts of followers of all kinda of groups, the typical stigma to it is the label placed on such questioners "the enemy" or "traitor". I've read through your blogs and most of my questions have been answered. Keep sharing and encouraging Pastor, lives are being changed and transformed from your blogs. Thank God you have a voice and is being channeled towards fixing the wrongs in relationships et al. I love you ma'am and am so glad I can read from you, knowing without a doubt that you're in top shape by God's Spirit. God bless you more and more Pastor.

Very true saying ma,thank you pastor. I've observed that most cases of deception are buttressed by the teaching that have to do with Loyalty.I find myself asking "what is loyalty". Hmmmm..... I refuse to be a victim of falsehood,I am led of the holy Spirit. It's so true that the word of God has all the answers....I read 3John1 this morning.... most certainly that there are many who are "DIOTREPHES" (vrs9) in character still in the church today. Indeed like you said ma, we must watch and pray. Remain blessed, I love you.

It was not the words but the grace and the love of God shinning through - you were different and I never forgot that meeting. Pastor, you were indeed different!! Now this is not the customary praise singing we all knew to give but rather from my heart. Somehow I understand .... and I pray that God perfects all that concerns you and all His children.

Dear Pastor, Thank you very much for this post and blog. Like you said, it is critical to have a P-E-R.S-O-N-A-L relationship with the Holy Ghost. It is a relationship that is both real and powerful. Sadly, many Christians either do not have this rapport with Him, do not want to grow in their relationship with Him or have simply chosen to be frugal with their sincerity with the Him. They thus are quick to acquiesce their God given abilities to others. God will always lead us aright, we just have to be willing to let Him. We need to be sincere with Him. Like the bible says in Gal 6:7, "Be not deceived; God is not mocked...".

@kingskid, I don't see anything misleading in what was said. No one is pointing fingers or causing trouble, no names were mentioned here. Why does the wicked run when no one chaseth? As a former member of the occult I actually agree with the comment above.

Absolutely truth, where questions can not be asked is a manipulated system. Something ain't right, we must ask questions, if not its a dictator system.

Dear Pastor, thank you so much for this article. It supports the truth about Christianity. Simply Christianity is living the way Christ lived... and that's why God gave us the best gift ever - The Holy Spirit. Any Christian that want to make progress the God's way, must be thought and directed by the Holy Spirit not any man. As, our Pastors, Prophets, Teachers, etc speak to us; The Holy Spirit is the One that gives each an every listeners personal insight into what is being said. Please, when God grants us the opportunity to be used as a Pastor, Prophet, Teacher, etc; we should remember that we are only a vessel and that all the honor should go to The Almighty... As Christians... we should all study the Word for ourselves and develop a better relationship with The Holy Spirit. I had one experience last year, there is a project we had in Church and I've been told what to give by The Holy Spirit but my Pastor couldn't accept that because he thought what he asked me to give should is what I should give. I always go with the Spirit unless I did not expressly hear from Him.

Hello pastor, I sympathies with your situation. But sadly what you described about people not asking questions or challenging the status quo is exactly what is happening here. Everybody seems to be singing your praise. But as Christians are we permitted to divorce at all, under whatever circumstances? Do we take our issues to unbelievers to judge for us? Can other Christians use you as an example to divorce their spouses? Is it possible to reconsider your stance for divorce? Can't the two of you find a common ground for reconciliation. I read about how much you love, what is love? Have you all these years been married to a false prophet unknowingly?

This is just what we need at this injurious times. If the very elect would not be swept off their feet by all the counterfeit christ roaming the world then we must keep watch, alert, awake and observant; always gazing at the word of God. I was almost at the verge of being deceived, but thank God I kept asking myself some questions until I came to the conclusion that what I was seeing wasn't God. Several contradictions and alterations. I thank God for His mercies. Thank you so much pastor Anita for this exposee. I love you loads, and I pray that God almighty will continue to keep you in safety and perfect health condition always. Amen.

Zita I beg to differ..."Deception are acts to propagate, beliefs of things that are not true usually omissions, half truth or a slice of truth. It is covered up by distraction, camouflaging, or fooling others with the disguise of an appearance to create an impression" If I may ask,what is the point of hanging on to such a marriage,at the end of the day salvation is a personal relationship between you and God and that is what takes you to heaven not whether you are married or divorced. #InChristthesolidrockiIstand#

I think she is being married to man who says one thing and does another. In fact, from her experience they departed from the marriage long ago. Pst Anita here has just being bold to let the world know this man is deceiving people about the real condition of his marriage.

Dear Zita, Read your bible very well and know on what grounds divorce can be allowed according to scripture. The people you say are singing her praises are those who know her personally and have seen the truth INCLUDING ME We have asked questions from both sides and yes we have made up our minds as the Bible has told us to test all spirits if they be from God. If in the course of marriage one finds out that the spouse has sworn affinity to the devil whilst maintaining a false front and for years he/she prays for them and the person refuses to change but would rather drag him/her into hell then he/she has a right to leave. There is NO marriage in heaven, we will all face God alone who will try our works by fire (...and many will say lord i healed in your name, caste out demons in you name... And He'll reply " get away from me ye workersof iniquity, I know you not.) Let me ask you, if you had asked Pastor Chris a question concerning this matter on yookos or any other forum do you think they'll answer you? No, nfact your account will be deleted and blocked but Pastor Anita has allowed you comment on here, that alone says a lot.

From your post Zita, you seem to have drawn the conclusion yourself. Would you rather she's happy separated, divorce or whatever the case might be or satisfy the whips n caprice of so many judgemental people like you. Even the bible says if your right hand will cause you to sin cut it off. Leave her alone a d feel free to skip coming here sighs*

“Haven’t you read,” he replied, “that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’ ? So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.” Matthew 19:4-6 Those are Words of Jesus Christ. God has not given me that right to separate even my own marriage. We can all tell Pastor what makes her happy but we cannot change God's Word, will or purpose. However we can make deliberate choice to walk away from His will and of course justify based on circumstances rather than waiting on God. God holds us accountable to our words and actions because His Hand is now short to redeem us from situations. Thausands of Christian marriages are headed this way because of one person's decision to justify divorce.

I agree with you Zita. I think with God's love (which Pastor Anita preaches), a resolution could have been found. At what point is it okay for a believer to give up on their marriage? Where does Jesus and the Holy Ghost come in? I believe Jesus was asked the same question (about divorce), what was His reply? It's important that as Christians we follow the Word and not our feelings or the World's views of what is acceptable. I appreciate the fact that the author must have gone through a whole lot others don't know of, but isn't that where the fight of faith comes in? Not judging please, i just feel grounds for reconciliation shouldn't be completely ignored/overlooked considering the fact that both parties are leaders in the body of Christ. Who then do the flock have to look up to??

Zita, I pray one day you will understand what happened here. Christians are used to just accepting anything and this is what is causing major issues amongst churches. If unbelievers can be held accountable, how much more believers???. Have you asked about what really happened. Do you even think PC cares?. A man that can leave his wife on her own for years on end. Everybody faces one direction, but have you ever though of writing to PC to also go back to his wife?. May God help you and I pray you do not have to go through this type of thing.

When you questioned the deceiving spirit you will be labelled as a rebellion. We thank God for revealing all this deception that our brethren are going through.

Thank you, I had the same experience too. I gave a seed but the Pastor said they keep record of those that gives cheque so for the fact that my seed wasn't as fat as he expected, when I needed prayer support for my relation, it was denied.

Until you wear same shoe of the abused,you can never comprehend the length,depth and breadth of what he/she passed through. She can never tell it all because its too long but if you watch closely, from the actions on both ends you can tell the true story. If u love the truth & God,you can sacrifice anything. Only God knows what transpired and will help solve the situation.Her revelations & boldness have helped save me from a life of perpetual agony with someone(whom to people on the outside,he was calm,a preacher and a good man but when i got in, i discovered the unimaginable and was brutally terrorized&abused) The best life to live is in the word. Currently, im searching for a living church with men of God like apostle Paul,Timothy whose hearts were clearly out for the gospel and "NEVER" took advantage of Gods people ; men whose accountability were evident to all& was even boasted about. Shalom
