Five deminic signs someone is sent by the devil in your life
2nd Corinthians 11: 13-14 for such are false apostles, deceit for workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
It is not ideal to be alone all the time. There are times that we need to be close to someone:
- Christian people
We make sure that the relationship we have with these kinds of people is good ones. The Bible talked about having two unreliable friends and what it could result in. In Proverbs 18: 24 one who has unreliable friends soon comes to ruin. But there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.
It doesn’t matter how many unreliable friends you have, there will always be a friend that will be closer to you than some of your family members. The devil knows about this. If he can get a person to fill in this position, he will have the ability to control your life.
The devil wants to kill you. He wants to destroy you. This should let you understand that he will use every possible means of getting you. One of these ways is sending people into your life to make you fall into his trap. These people come into your life like a friend. They know everything about you. They advise you. They tell you their secrets so that you can tell them yours too.
These people are everywhere:
- In your school
- At your work
- In the neighborhood
- Talk to you
- Walk with you
You cannot easily discern these people until they have completed their mission in your life. Another thing you must know is that these people are also in churches. We call these people frenemies. They are unfriendly friends. They are the ones who shake your hands with a handful of thorns. They are the ones who will hug you and stab you in the back.
It is hard to get rid of these people in one’s life because of one thing, they cannot be easily discerned. They disguise themselves. They are like their father, Satan. They will disguise as an angel. They appear in white, but they are full of darkness. The truth is that you have them in your life. None of us is free of these people. The devil will always plant one in our lives. This is the time to discern them and cut them loose from your life.
This is the time to stir up that toxic relationship with these people. This is the time to run from them and save your soul. There are things we need to watch out for in these people. There are things they do that will make us see them. We must not forget to pray that God opens our eyes to see the people and to know the truth about them so that even when they disguise themselves, we will be able to see them.
It is one thing to be able to see these evil people. It is another thing to be able to run away from them. Some of these people have become part of our lives. We believe that the relationship and friendship with them is divine and we don’t want to end it because we feel we might hurt them.
We need the power to be able to end all evil relationships, too!
It is not just about identifying them. It is also about having the power to run away from them all.
Signs Someone Is Sent by The Devil In Your Life
What are the things we should watch out for in the lives of these people the devil sends our way to make us fall into this trap?
What are the signs that the devil sent someone into your life?
The Signs the devil has sent these people in your life are that they encourage you to:
- Do Evil
- Sleep with Different People
- Fornicate and Commit Adultery
- Do Drugs
- Corrupt You In Every Possible Way
There is no way someone sent by God into your life will ask you to do evil. There is no way the God who hates evil will ask you to do evil. No matter how small the evil is. These people will always want you to do any kind of evil.
There have been many Christians who have fallen into the pit, dug by the devil because of their friends. Listen to me now, on the day of judgment, you are not going to stand and be judged by your friends.
You are going to be standing there on your own. So, what if they call you boring? So, what if they talk about you or call you a Jesus freak? It is better to live a wholly lonely life than to live a popular life that leads to hell.
Matthew 7: 13-14 says: 13 “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.
There are fewer people traveling on the road that leads to life. There have been many stories of people who have been killed in an attempt to rob houses. There are people who have been shot after they engage in a gang fight. When you check their records, you will find out that they have a good background, and you wonder why they went bad. Why they became evil. The truth is that they were unable to point out the people sent by the devil into their lives to destroy them.
Some people were lucky to be able to point them out, but they couldn’t leave them.
Listen, you can be the best parent on planet Earth, you raise your children the best way possible, but I am telling you, I am warning you that one friend can destroy your child’s future. Friends are so powerful.
I remember a story of a guy and his high school sweetheart. She was the prettiest girl in school, and they fell in love and got married young. The man built his way up, working in immensely powerful, high-paying jobs, and at one point he moved jobs into an executive role.
And all the executives in that company he worked with had mistresses on the side. He had been faithful to his wife for twenty-five years. But when he became friends with these other executives and saw how they had mistresses over time, he followed them and started committing adultery. The wife found out and they ended the marriage. All this started simply because of the friends he had started to run around with. Marriages have been broken because of evil people sent by the devil to encourage you into evil.
Listen to me. There are some friends that are not good for your marriage. If you care about your marriage and you fear the Lord, remove yourself from that friendship. Lives have been destroyed because of these people that have been sent into people’s lives by the devil. Don’t think the devil will come in his original form to tempt you. He will send people to you instead. Therefore, the Bible says in Proverbs 1: 10 My son, if sinful men entice you, do not give in to them. You must not consent.
Identify the people who always want you to do evil and run away from them. It doesn’t matter how long you have been close to them, you must run from them.
The Second Sign Is That They Kill Your Dreams
We know the devil to be the number one dream killer. It will not take him anything to destroy a dream. If that person you are calling a friend or the one you are close to is trying to kill your dream, you must run. The family of Joseph, his brothers were dream killers. They wanted to kill the dream and make sure the dream didn’t come to fruition. You can be sure of the one who sent his brother against him. The devil did. The devil can use anyone who makes themselves available for him. They do not only have to be friends, but they can also even be your family. You have a dream. Everyone has a dream. We want to be great in life. We want to be known.
But these people will never want that to happen. They will always find a way to keep you under so that the dream will never become fulfilled. It is the plan of God to make your dreams come true. God will always want you to be great. After we read through His words, we will understand that the plans of God are good ones. The devil will always want to destroy that plan. Therefore, he will send people to you to destroy it. Don’t be so quick to tell everyone your plans.
The Third Sign Is That They Are Not Happy With Your Success And They Want You To Fail
Watch out for people who are not happy when you become successful. If anyone criticizes your success, if they say that you don’t deserve it, if they don’t congratulate you, you need to run from these people. These people don’t want you to be successful in life. The reason for this is that they don’t want you to rise above them.
They want to be able to control you. They want you to be below them. There are people like this where you work. They are in your school, they are against you. They come as friends, but deep down, they want you to fail. These people must never be in your life. They are people you need to pray against and run from. This is the time that you ask God to expose evil friends before they cause huge damage to your life.
The Fourth Sign, They Divert Your Attention from God
These people are manipulative. If there is anyone who is telling you bad things about Christianity, about Jesus and God, you need to run away from them. When they badmouth your religious beliefs, when they say sweet words to move you away from God, you should know that you need to run. If you have warned them or told them to stop and they refuse, you must run. What these people are doing is that they are planting a seed in you, a seed of doubt.
When the seed starts to grow, it brings the fruit of unbelief in you. This is when you start doubting God. You will start to look for alternatives outside of Christ. The Bible says in Romans 16: 17-18 NIV I urge you, brothers and sisters, to watch out for those who caused division and put obstacles in your way that are contrary to the teaching you have learned.
Keep away from them, for such people are not serving our Lord Christ but their appetites.
By smooth talk and flattery, they deceive the minds of naive people. The Bible says they:
Use smooth talk
Make you believe things
Divert your attention
Shift your focus from Christ
Tell you what sin is and what is not a sin
Make you believe evil things
If you have people like this in your life, it is time to run.
The Last Sign Is That People Warn You About Them
God works in many ways when he sees that you are going the wrong way. When he sees that you are associating yourself with these people sent by the devil too much, he tries to warn you and he uses the people around you to warn you.
If people you know are:
- Talking about those you follow all the time
- Always warning you about them
- Know that you are not safe with them
- Your pastor warned you about them
- Your spouse warned you about them
- Your parents warn you about them
- People are warning you about them
listen to them, it is time to run.
These people might be seeing what you are unable to see. They might be sent by God to warn you. You need to listen to them. A perfect example of this is boyfriends and girlfriends. I know I am not lying when I say that some people have married people, they had no business marrying after everyone told you not to marry that person, but you were blinded by love or lust. You went ahead and married that person anyway. I want us to be truthful to ourselves.
These people that Satan will send could be anyone. Don’t be surprised if it is your spouse. Sampson had a relationship with the wrong person, and he faced the consequences. The reason why Satan sends these people is that they have made themselves available to be used. That is why you must ensure that your family is established in Christ. You must make sure that the foundation of your relationship is on Christ. Many people have married their enemies because they couldn’t see the truth.
They couldn’t discern. Hope is not lost on this. God can change them and grab them from the hands of the devil. You need to pray fervently. This is not something you should joke about. This is something serious. Many lives have been destroyed because they couldn’t see the signs people sent by the devil are showing. They couldn’t read them. Some saw them but couldn’t leave these people. You need to take action.
The Bible says that you must watch and pray!
It is important to watch. You must also guide your family so that the devil may not use them.
