Apostle Joshua Selman: There are three groups of people you must be aware of, it requires great wisdom to deal with these people.
There are three groups of people you will always find around your life, it will take a lot of wisdom and discretion to deal with them, otherwise you will never arrive at the place of destiny;
- Wicked People.
Let’s talk about wicked people. Unfortunately, you may not be able to drive them indefinitely from your life, you will find them in your neighborhood, you will find them around your organization and sometimes as painful as it is, they will be too useful to be thrown away completely.
Proverbs 6:18.. A heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil.
Proverbs 4:14-17.. Do not set foot on the path of the wicked or walk in the way of evil men. Avoid it, do not travel on it; turn from it and go on your way. For they cannot sleep till they do evil; they are robbed of slumber till they make someone fall. They eat the bread of wickedness and drink the wine of violence.
There are people like that on Earth. Believe me, I’m not just trying to be negative. There are people who have chosen to partner with the devil to be wicked. An evil heart it is called. There are wicked people in our world, there are wicked people around your organization, there are wicked people in church, there are wicked people in society. It is not within your power to drive them away, you have to sustain the wisdom to need them. Some of those wicked people are your superiors for now, you must learn to walk with them. Some of those wicked people comes in various forms. Believers must be educated to know how to deal with wicked people.
2. Selfish People.
Who are they? Who are these groups of people called selfish? Selfish people are not necessarily evil people, they are just people who are indifferent about your state provided they get what they are looking for. The character of selfishness is that it does not mind who is wounded in the process, the most important thing for a selfish person is obtaining your desire. It does not matter who dies, it does not matter who cries, it does not matter who is in pain. A selfish person does not see anything at their side, all they see is what they desire, they want it so bad, it does not matter who dies. They will betray family for it, they want it so bad, they will do anything provided it ends with them achieving it.
A selfish person has no business harming you, if there is nothing that becomes a point of conflict between both of you. You may even look like an ally for a while unfortunately you will find these people everywhere and I’m hoping and praying with all my heart that you are not one of those people.
3. Ignorant Slash Naive People.
What does it mean to be naive? To show lack of consciousness, to show lack of experience, to show lack of wisdom, lack of maturity, lack of joy, lack of judgement. There are people who are void of that level of maturity, they are called a naive person. Is like a notebook that nothing has been written on, that’s what makes them dangerous because they become whatever is suddenly written. The easiest people to deceive are not wicked people, they are the deceivers themselves, they are not selfish people but naive people.
Now, let me tell you this. When satan wants to destroy you, the greatest tool he needs is a wicked person. If he cannot find a wicked person, he will make do with a selfish person. If he cannot find a selfish person, he will make do with a naive person. All three can cause the same harm to your life, the difference is that a wicked person does his wickedness from a premeditated standpoint, so before and after your pain they are happy. It was the plan.
A selfish person like Judas is focused on making money out of Jesus, not with the intention for Jesus to die. Usually when the harm is done and what they are looking for, they now have, then they now have the conscience to regret and they say “but I didn’t want it to go this far”.
Have you heard of people who beat someone till the person died and when they are in police custody, they would tell you the plan was not to kill the person. I arranged the kidnap of the person so that I will get 10 million, I didn’t plan that the person will die.
Wicked people, selfish people, ignorant or naive people can be tools that can become a disaster to your life except and unless you sustain the wisdom to live with them. Unfortunately, for the rest of your life, you will be immersed in the midst of these kinds of people every day including tomorrow, including forever.
You would think that because Jesus was the son of the Living God, He would not have these kinds of people around him. They were among His disciples, unfortunately they were among the scribes and the Pharisees, they were among the members of His congregation, they were among the onlookers and for the rest of His life on Earth. Jesus, your Jesus, my Jesus as the word of God, the word God incarnate, He lived in the midst of these people.
Do you know all these three people played a role together and made the death of Jesus possible even though we know now that it was the hidden wisdom of God but these three groups of people, the naive people who said crucify Him, let his blood be upon our head. The scribes and the Pharisees who plotted it intentionally and Judas who wanted to make money out of Jesus, not to destroy Him.
If you do not sustain the wisdom to walk with these people, you will get into trouble.
I hope you know that the first fall was because of this? The woman you call Eve, Eve did not fall because she was a wicked woman..No! She was beguiled.
2 Corinthians 11:3 But I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent’s cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ.
Satan comes to a naive woman and begins to sell a narrative and sell an idea. How many good people have been turned into wicked people because they were so naive.
It is a reason why believers must be trained and be mentored. There are people today who have been made to steal, they are not thieves, they were just naive
There are many young boys today that have been made to join terrorist groups, by the time they catch these boys, some of them are barely teenagers in their early adulthood and you would find out they were just indoctrinated with extremist views, they were not wicked people by default, they were not selfish people by default, they were just naive uneducated inexposed people who became victims of the desire and the plan of others.
These three groups of people, as much as possible, you keep praying and sanitizing your environment but you have to get used to it. The cosmos is filled with a mixed multitude, believers are just a portion of those on earth.. Did the Bible not tell you not all men have faith? That means, don’t expect everybody to say “God bless you”, you find God bless you in church but you will not find God bless you everywhere. There are people who will honour you and say “Apostle God bless you” but there are other people who are vicious and wicked, there are others who are selfish. Unfortunately, this selfishness has spilled even to spouses, spilled into leaders. There are people who will not mind their entire families go down with all due respect, provided they go forward. There are parents who will not mind their children becoming prostitutes, provided they return with money for them to eat..
Like I taught you when I taught you on “Destiny helpers”, I’m happy to also announce to you that there are sincere people. Do not think everyone is out to destroy you.. No!
Don’t allow your pain stop you from knowing that they are sincere people.
I pray you become one of them, that you become a breath of fresh air to someone and that the person will say from the day you came into my life, you healed me from the pain of 20 years. I never believed that there would be Christians who could be sincere but thank God for the gift of you.
I’m praying again for someone who came to church saying “God please bring a good friend to my life, I’m tired of people piercing me. I’ve spent my life with injuries from betrayals”.. May my God who is also your God send sincere people to you.
Can I tell you, sincere people have a therapeutic effect, when you find Godly and sincere people, you can sleep with your eyes closed and the thing about life and about God is one sincere person can bring the healing that 100 people may have caused for you. There are sincere people. Burn this at the back of your mind, probably you are seated next to one.
There are sincere people. Don’t draw a conclusion from your years of pain and betrayal, from your years of whatever “oh they cheated me in business, oh church people are terrible, all pastors are demons, they just”.. No! Don’t conclude like that, there are still sincere people.
This is a prophetic message for someone. Are there still good men? Yes!
Are there still good women? Yes!
Are there still good parents? Yes!
Are there still good politicians? Yes!
Are there still good leaders? Yes!
Are there still good men of God? Yes!
Are there still sincere Christians? Yes!
If you are not part of that sincere Army, there is room for you to join but do not conclude that all men are evil. You may be wrong!
There are evil men, there are selfish men, there are naive men but my goodness, there are men who are called gifts. When they come into your life in a moment, believe me when I tell you this ministry Koinonia you see has enjoyed the ministry of such men.
There are a few of these men, God has brought in my own life truly, you can call them consolations by God.
