The Mystery Behind Strange Men and Women.

Some months ago, God had dropped a topic in my heart about strange women and men but I was lazy to gather my thoughts into a well articulated article. But luckily one Sunday, the guest minister preached on the topic and I was fired up in my spirit to write on it as He gave me utterance. 
.
There are strange men and women in life. Like a sermon preached by D.K Olukoya, they are the kind of people you must never meet. In fact you must miss them because they're a minus, subtraction and a divide to your life and destiny.
.
You must never be friends with them or marry them as a spouse. 
.
What makes them strange, you may ask?
.
A man or woman becomes strange to your life and destiny because they will never be an advantage to your life. They're mostly that boyfriend or girlfriend or even the friend whose entrance into your life destroyed a lot of things in you. 
.
It is strange for an eagle to be seen in the company of chickens. It is strange for you who is destined to be great in life to be keeping company with dogs and whores. The sad thing is that you won't know them on the superficial level. In fact, you'll love them so much just as Samson loved Delilah. 
.
Spiritually, they destroy your relationship with God so that you can be vulnerable to sin and iniquity. They'll tell you that you're too spiritual, too careful or serious about the things of God and because you want to please him or her, you'll dampen your zeal for God and give them more attention. 
.
Academically, they will pull you down from excellence to mediocrity and from there to the lower cadre. Rather than spend time reading, they'll tell you about parties, gossips, gist and activities that would distract you. 
.
See, the devil is often behind the sponsorship of strange persons into your life. Not everyone you meet in life will 'agree' to your destiny. Yorubas would say, "Ko ba star e mu", meaning that it doesn't blend with your star.
.
Watch your life closely how it fared when that lady or man came into your life. You might meet them online. In fact most people you meet on social media platforms are strange. How can someone be telling you to send your nude picture or ask you where are you at half past eleven in the night through chatting.
.
All of these are on friendship basis.
.
Now, in marriage, there are strange men and women you MUST not marry or else your life will be a deficit. Some have married them, some are in a relationship with them and some strange men or women are trying to destroy some people's marital joy.
.
Singles, you need to pray very well before you marry. Not everyone in church or you see are suitable for your life in marriage. That's why I pity many who feel dating will help them to know the right person without involving God. 
.
The best of your intuition cannot discern strange men or women except you pray to God. 
.
Strange men or women are pretenders. They will pretend to be a child of God only for you to discover that they're far from what they claimed to be after wedding. Can you know pretenders through dating? Lai Lai! Some are very smart and cunning in that you won't discover their real identity until the wedding night. May you not fall into their trap!
.
While the preacher was preaching, he shared a painful story of his friend who married a strange woman. He was a young and vibrant man of God whom God was using and he had commanded lots of crowd with influential men and women in his ministry. At the junction of making marital decision, he told his friends, even the preacher to pray for him but he (the preacher) didn't take the matter serious then because he wasn't serious in the things of God. 
.
Years later when the preacher visited him, he met him married to a lady. He saw the lady with a skimpy skirt and was ballooning chewing gum. Could this be a pastor's wife? He thought. He was amazed when his friend told him that was his wife.
.
Unfortunately, because they had delay in conception, he learned that his friend's wife had been impregnated by their security man. This is not African Magic but a true life story. 
.
His ministry folded up and this pastor, the preacher's friend, left Nigeria to South Africa and the shocking part of the whole thing was that he became a bouncer in a club house.
.
That married man that's trailing your life as a single lady is a strange man. He's out to destroy your life and give you temporal comfort with cash and kind. There's something strange about strange women and men, they will do something strange that a normal and godly person shouldn't do.
.
A strange man or woman can be that third party influence in your marriage whose agenda is to destroy your marital bliss. There are strange people in church too. I have always said that a church is like a hospital. There are lots of sick patients but few nurses and doctors there.
.
The hearts of strange men and women are like snares and nets to trap your life and destiny. Beware! The agenda of Delilah in Samson's life was to destroy his source of power and anointing. 
.
How can you escape them before you enter their 'one chance' bus?
.
Live to please God. That's all you need to do. Obey God and His word. Be prayerful and be spiritually minded rather than being carnally driven.
