7 Min Read

Topic : Wolves in Sheep’s Clothing


I confess today, In this new month, my life is uplifted daily by divine ability, I am favoured and blessed in all areas of my life. I am directed by His will and I will live to fulfill my purpose of creation in the land of the living if the second coming of Christ tarries in Jesus’ name, amen

Memorize: And as they sat and did eat, Jesus said, Verily I say unto you, One of you which eateth with me shall betray me. Mark 14:18

Bible Reading: Psalms 41:6-12

6. And if he come to see me, he speaketh vanity: his heart gathereth iniquity to itself; when he goeth a road, he telleth it.

7. All that hate me whisper together against me: against me do they devise my hurt.

8. An evil disease, say they, cleaveth fast unto him: and now that he lieth he shall rise up no more.

9. Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom l trusted, which did eat of my bread, hath lifted up his heel against me.

10. But thou, O LORD, be merciful unto me, and raise me up, that I may requite them.

11. By this I know that thou favourest me, because mine enemy doth not triumph over me.

12. And as for me, thou upholdest me in mine integrity, and settest me before thy face for ever.



“In journeying often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils by mine own countrymen, in perils by the heathen, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren; 2 Corinthians 11:26

As we see above, Apostle Paul enumerated the dangers he had encountered in the course of preaching the gospel and perils among false brethren made the list.

You must be wary of false brethren within your family, neighbourhood, workplace and even in your local assembly.

In 1 Samuel 17:26-28, while David was making enquiries about the reward for slaying Goliath, his elder brother wanted him to go back to look after sheep.

The elders say that if the household enemy cannot kill a person, neither can the external ones.

David was already dreaming of how he was going to become a giant-killer but his brother wanted to silence him, just as Joseph’s brothers sought to kill his own dreams in Genesis 37:17-20.

One would think that his brothers would have been interested in helping him become a great ruler as he had dreamed, after all, they would have been the great rulers brothers.

Rather, they not only wanted his dreams to be aborted, they also wanted to kill him.

Don’t be fooled; not everyone smiling with you genuinely wishes you well, so be careful who you share your dreams with.

Be like David and follow the counsel of God rather than those of men.

When I became the General Overseer of the RCCG, there was a man I had considered to be a good friend as we had done some wonderful things together for God in the past.

I went to visit him one day to discuss past. I went to visit him one day to discuss my new assignment as the General Overseer.

When I got to his house, he drove me away, saying he had hated me since the day I came into the Church. I was shocked and really felt sad.

I pray that every wolf in sheep’s clothing around you shall be exposed and disgraced in the mighty name of Jesus.

Prayer Points
