How To Recognize A Deceiver and Run From Such


This devotional is contributed by Sylvester Obinna
 
Have you met men who are terrible liars?
 
Have your paths crossed with people whose hobby lying?
 
Even when it's obvious, they still lie with all seriousness.
 
There are guys with a track record of deceiving ladies
 
There are ladies with manipulative skills.
 
King Solomon likened someone who deceives to a madman.
 
Oh yes...see it here:
 
Proverbs 26:18-19 (KJV) As a mad man who casteth firebrands, arrows, and death, So is the man that deceiveth his neighbour, and saith, Am not I in sport?
 
After sleeping with you, he treats you as a game, because you are not the only one.
 
They begin to compare you with others.
Its like a competition.
 
See it in another translation
 
Proverbs 26:18-19 (NET)
Like a madman who shoots firebrands and deadly arrows,
so is a person who deceives his neighbor, and says, “Was I not only joking?”
 
When he saves your number as "barber", he is a deceiver!
 
When she tells you "let's do it," everyone is doing it, she is a deceiver!
 
When he tells you I wish I met you before meeting my wife, he is a deceiver!
 
When she tells you my husband is not as caring as you are, she is a deceiver!
 
When he tells you to come for special prayers at his residence, he is a deceiver!
 
And so on...
 
Now the question is;
 
How do you recognize such a person?
 
Just like a madman will not attest to the fact that he is mad, a deceiver will not come up front to you and say... hello, I am here to deceive you.
 
So how do you know the intents of a man heart, when the Bible says no one can know it?
 
How do you know you are the 12th girlfriend, even though he keeps telling you you are his one and only?
 
How do you know she is only after your money even when she's all nice and homely?
 
One of the prominent ways you recognize a mad person is by appearance.
 
So you look out for appearance.
 
I'm not talking about physical appearance now.
 
One of the synonyms of appearance is manifestation.
 
So check for manifestations.
 
What does he do?
 
What can you see in him/her?
 
What are the observable conditions you can see in him/her?
 
Can you see evidences of true Christian manliness?
 
Don't just fall in love helplessly, be observant.
 
What is his driving force?
 
What motivates her?
 
Do his words tally with his actions?
 
Does she claim to love you, yet encourages compromise?
 
Some things can't remain hidden, with time, the real deal will be made known.
 
I pray for you this morning, the eyes of your understanding are made open.
 
You will not be deceived.
 
You will not fall into wrong hands In Jesus name.
