THE MYSTERY BEHIND WHAT FOLLOWS YOUR LIFE:
THE LEADER YOU FOLLOW

Lk 4: 5-8
Then the devil, taking Jesus up on the high mountain, showed Him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said to Him, all this authority I will give you and their glory, for this has been delivered unto me and I will give it to whomever I wish.
There are kingdoms in this world-marine, witchcraft, occult - and every one in these kingdoms see.
Christ had just concluded a 40-day fast. He was filled with the Holy Ghost. Yet, the devil came to tempt Him. Taking Him to a high mountain, he tried to entice Him with authority and glory. This is because he meant business, and that business is leading many Christians to trouble today.
You need to understand that satanic personalities have the power to make things happen- to give wealth, glory, fame, authority. However, to whomever they give such gifts, it is for an evil purpose.
Therefore, if you will worship before me…
What does this mean: worship before me? Satan’s deal with Christ was for this purpose: to make Christ worship God in his (satan’s) presence. While Christ refused the offer, it is sad to note that many people worship God in the presence of the present devil. The devil does not mind that you worship God, as long as it is in his presence. As far as he is concerned, his goal is to sit in the congregation. To achieve this goal, he entices pastors, prophets, bishops, etc with promises of power, authority, glory and honour.
And Jesus answered and said to him, Get behind me satan, for it is written, You shall worship the Lord Your God, and Him only you shall serve
A Christian who worships God, but still goes on to engage in ‘prophetic work’; buying items, objects and performing rituals, is offering a service to satan.
Matt 12: 33
Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit.
Satan came to entice Jesus at the beginning of His ministry because he understood this principle: the state of the leader determines the state of the followers. The goodness or corruptness of a fruit is determined by the state of the tree. Therefore, if the leader (the tree) is corrupt, then the fruit (the followers) is corrupt as well. It does not matter whether they are aware or not…
Brethren, the leader you follow can make you- good or corrupt. That is why Christ said to His disciples, follow me and I will make you fishers of men. You must therefore be careful about who you follow.
Matt 7: 13- 20
Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits…
Others choose the broad and wide way to destruction. These are led into destruction by evil prophets, who influence and produce them for the devil. Every member they produce is a candidate of the devil.
A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them
Any Christian who worships God, but serves something else on the side will be corrupt. However, once a Christian chooses to wholly follow a good leader, it is impossible for him to be corrupt.
Now, when a tree is corrupt, it is condemned to destruction and whatever happens to the tree affects the fruits as well.
Rev 5: 13
And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto Him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever
The good news is that even the wicked powers confess that true honor, glory and power belong to God forever and forever. This is the testimony of TRPM till the coming of Christ.
In the name of Jesus,
My Father, I rededicate my life to You.
Power of God, possess me now.
Wicked powers from the waters, moving me away from my rights and blessings; sword of the Lord, locate and slay them.
Evil mirror monitoring the affairs of my life, sword of the Lord, locate and break it in pieces.
Any evil thing in my life (body, business, marriage), I destroy you by fire.
