Dangerous People You Should Be Careful About

Sunday 27th January 2019 Prayer Devotion

Scripture Reading:- 2 Timothy 4:1-22

Topic:- Dangerous People You Should Be Careful About

Text:- 2 Timothy 4:10

In today’s message, we be discussing about seven dangerous people in an organization or your life you need to know and handle them with wisdom, knowledge and understanding.
As a Leader, beware that at one stage or the other, either in your Church, Business or Association, you will find yourself dealing with the following groups of people. If you don’t have wisdom to deal with them, your position and efforts are in danger.

1. Thomas Group:- They walk with you but they don’t really believe in you. Though God can use you in front of them, they are not easily moved, they take time to believe in you. These people can delay your vision and they are also not aware they are also delaying themselves. It’s a struggle and a burden to lead people who don’t believe in you.

2. Judas Group:- They walk with you but they have issues with you when God begins to bless you. They are not happy when things of great value are given to you. In short they are jealous of your success. When elevation comes, they will say we are poor in the work place but the Oga is driving big-big cars but we have people that are struggling financially in this workplace. They want you to drive a probox which will make them happy. They have serious issues if your life becomes better and better. They talk as if you don’t care about the poor. Hear these! Anyone who is jealous about your prosperity in your workplace, tomorrow, he will betray you.

3. Absalom Group:- You give them opportunity to teach or lead and he begins to see himself as the Leader of the place. He believes he can teach and lead better than you. When he leads, he leads to prove a point that he is better than you, he won’t even mention you in his conversation. He works behind you to steal the hearts of people so that people will follow him. He will make people to feel they are neglected in your position. He will tell people he is there for them to help them anytime they need help. This one, he is in competition with you. He believes he can be a better Leader than you . Tomorrow, trust me, he will split your followers.

4. Korah Group:- This one will challenge your authority, he believes you are at the same level with everyone and he has issues when others give honor to you. He will say you are honoring this man too much. He has issues when you give instructions. He is rebellious and dangerous because he sees you as someone who is at the same level with him. He believes everyone is professional and everyone is educated, so, what is so special about you.

5. Ham Group:- This one, he will expose your nakedness. The day you find yourself in a shameful act, he will tell everybody your weaknesses, and he will be happy to expose your disaster.

6. Gehazi Group:- He is with you but he will be collecting money from behind your back. He takes advantage that he is close to the Leader, and use that to collect things from people. He borrows money from people and he does not pay them back. He goes to people to ask for financial assistance, and make people feel you are not taking good care of him as he serves in the house.

7. Deotrephes Group:- This one is too dangerous. He is famous in the workplace/group/association, he has power and influence and has a voice amongst the people. He speaks malicious words behind your back. He is poisonous, he can come with stories that can totally destroy your image as a Leader. He can come up with serious lies that cause people to leave your group. He will come with stories that you are using their money, you are sleeping with women and using charms to sustain your position. His stories are very harmful and dangerous.
Therefore I pray that God will give you wisdom,knowledge and understanding to deal with all these kinds of spirits, because, no Leader can rise to higher level of his/her calling until all these spirits have been dealt with in his environment. And if you deal with them in a canal way, you can cause more damage to yourself and your job. Depend on God through prayers and you will overcome.

Prayer Points:-
1. Oh Lord God, give me Your wisdom henceforth so as to be profitable unto You and people, in the name of Jesus Christ.
2. Oh Lord God, give me Your Spirit of understanding and knowledge in You henceforth by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.
3. Oh Lord my God, I need Your gift of discernment, give to me henceforth, so as to discern evil from good, in the name of Jesus Christ.

Happy Lord’s Day!

If you want to give your life to Christ; you want your sins forgiven; you want to become a child of God; you want to experience the realities of new birth; you want to make heaven;

Or you were once saved and fell along the line, and now you want to rededicate your life to Christ…

Then pray this short prayer of Faith

Say it loud and mean it:

“Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins, wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.

Thank God for your soul. I congratulate you for the best decision of your life. For further details on how to grow in this new light, please click the CONTACT page or visit TACN or any bible believing church near you and ask for the pastor in charge.
