So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don’t fall!

(1 Cor 10:12-13)

One day in my church in Nigeria, a young man who today has become one of the greatest men of God that my country Nigeria and the world at large would live to know made an open confession in the church during a morning devotion of how he slept with somebody’s wife and how God dealt with the matter. Ten years later, he felt led by the Holy Spirit to make an open confession of that act in the church. He said he knew that God had already forgiven him, but he felt led by the Holy Spirit to make that confession for others to learn.  When he was done, the Bishop of the church said that he has never witnessed a confession like that in his entire life and told the congregation. He further told the congregation that the brother was more righteous than everyone else in the church because we are always hiding our sins for fear of ridicule and shame and the enemies keeps us down with it.  Finally, the Bishop told the brother, that he had not only be forgiven by God, but he would never fall into that sort of temptation again.

Now, come to think of it, do you think that the brother was the only one who had slept with someone’s wife before or they were not people in the church who committed fornication but never confessed? We all know the answer is no. People commit sins everyday but we pretend to be righteous. However, the brother had the courage to expose the devil and slap him in the face by making an open confession of his sin which led to his deliverance. Many of us keep our sins to ourselves but rejoice and condemn others when we hear about their fall. But we forget that God is pleased with the man who admits his sin more than the self righteous. When we talk about other people’s sin, we forget that we all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. Our justification is by grace through Christ who has redeemed us by his blood.

“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.”

(Rom 3:23-25)

When the Jews tried to kill a woman caught in adultery, Jesus wrote their sins on the ground and they all threw their stones down and walked away. Jesus told the woman to go and sin no more. Whilst they were busy talking about her and hiding their own sins, Jesus forgave her sins and set her free from bondage for ever.

Today, the founder of three vibrant groups on Facebook, the Prophetic Development, What your dreams reveal about you and Hananiah,” Harold Moran made a confession I believe came as a shock to so many people. But no matter how shocked you were and what you think about this matter, I would like to say unequivocally that like the great Man of God from Nigeria, only a great and humble Leader like man like our daddy Harold Moran would be bold enough to make a confession of this type. The message is simple. He was tempted by the devil and somehow he fell for it. He however repented before it was too late and the enemy has been shamed because Satan wanted to cut down a servant of God, but the Lord said no to that attack. Let us have it in mind that the internet is a two edged sword. But God and Satan are here and anyone could be saved by God just like anyone could be devoured by Satan via the internet.

 Harold Moran is not just older than many of us; he is also more advanced in the things of the spirit more than many of us. We should not just take his temptation and confession as one of those things and laugh over it and probably assume that he is a womanizer like many may have concluded in their closets. We should rather see it as an eye opener to the fact that the devil is standing by to attack any of us once he finds the opportunity to do so. Many people called to the prophetic and deliverance ministry like Harold Moran are serious targets of the devil through sexual enticements. The devil can use both men and women to achieve this purpose and he can come in any form.  I am talking from experience. The enemy has almost killed me twice using women as bait. My most warning in the ministry has always been to be careful in my association with women because they are the weapons of attack they enemy has designed for me. Please I am not implying here that women are bad, I am only telling you a device the enemy has designed to attack the children of God.  This temptation is very high especially when the Man of God is not married. The devil also tries to stop many people with Prophetic and deliverance ministry from getting married so he can easily cut them down.

As students of this great university created by the Holy Spirit through his humble servant, Harold Moran, we should know that if the devil could tempt our leader, he could as well tempt us. We must therefore not just see what happened to him as a weakness on his part but also as a warning to us all, that none of us is above temptation and any of us could also fall. God forbid!

 Finally, I would like to say that if anyone has been offended by the man of God Harold Moran in any way whatsoever, please, let that person forgive him. He has confessed his weakness and the Lord has forgiven him and strengthened him. You would do well to forgive him too.  Also, if you are here to tempt people, please repent and seek the face of God. I appeal to all of us to be circumspect and be our brother’s keeper. If your brother appreciates your beauty by telling you that you look beautiful and sexy, don’t assume that he is flirting with you. Many marriages have collapsed because the couples were too holy to say something nice to each other. Romance is part of Christian life, though it must be with one married to you. But that does not mean that we should not appreciate ourselves if the need arises. Please no matter what, always remember to pray for Harold Moran. We are all in this group because of his love for God and mankind. Many of us have found our calling through his guidance. He needs our support at a time of trial like this. God bless you. . Let us pray for one another bearing in mind what the scripture said in the first book of Corinthians 10 verse 12, “So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don’t fall!”
