Topic: MY LIFE IS NOT FOR SALE (3)
Text: Ezekiel 13:18–20, Nahum 3:4.
Minister: Dr. Daniel Olukoya (G.O. MFM Worldwide)
It will be good to pay very close attention.
Ezekiel 13:18 (KJV) says: “And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Woe to the women that sew pillows to all armholes, and make kerchiefs upon the head of every stature to hunt souls! Will ye hunt the souls of my people, and will ye save the souls alive that come unto you?”
===> May the agenda of soul hunters for your life be disgraced! In the name of Jesus.
Ezekiel 13:19–20 (KJV): “And will ye pollute me among my people for handfuls of barley and for pieces of bread, to slay the souls that should not die, and to save the souls alive that should not live, by your lying to my people that hear your lies?
They are exchanging people with barley and bread to slay the souls that should not die. Wherefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against your pillows, wherewith ye there hunt the souls to make them fly, and I will tear them from your arms, and will let the souls go, even the souls that ye hunt to make them fly.”
This is a very, very serious matter.
Nahum 3:4 (KJV) says: “Because of the multitude of the whoredoms of the wellfavoured harlot, the mistress of witchcrafts, that selleth nations through her whoredoms, and families through her witchcrafts.”
They sell families and nations as well through what the Bible calls “witchcraft,” which is like what we read the last time in Revelation 18:13 about merchants of the earth who trade with the souls of men.
Listen, beloveth, the creation of man took place in three stages:
1. The Lord formed man from the dust of the ground.
2. God breathed the breath of life into his nostrils, and the spirit was created.
3. Man became a living soul, a distinct individual.
That soul makes us distinct as individuals. That spirit is the breath of life in us, which goes back to God at death. Once that spirit departs from the body, it goes back to God, and the soul heads for either heaven or hellfire. So, our spirit is that part of our body that knows God intimately. It is God-conscious. Our body is the container that we live in. It is world-conscious. Our soul is the seat of our will, intellect, and emotion. It is self-conscious.
So a man is a spirit, living in a container called the body and having a soul. Our soul is self-conscious. Our body is world-conscious, while our spirit is God-conscious. The Bible says in Psalm 139:14 that we are fearfully and wonderfully made. So the real you is your spirit, which is invisible to the physical eye and can only be seen with the eye of the spirit. It is amazing that dark spirits can summon somebody’s spirit out of the body and use the person for their purposes. Sometimes, what people refer to as dreams are just records of actual happenings to your spirit in the spirit realm.
For somebody who has a spirit husband, somebody is having sex with you in the dream, and you think it is just a dream? No, that one has gone beyond a dream and is now spiritual. So God gave that spirit a soul. The soul is that part of you that makes you an individual. With the soul, man is now able to exercise his will. It is the soul that reflects in your body that gives you personality. That is why there are no two people with the same personality or soul. The soul belongs to the spirit and not the body. But when a man dies, that soul or personality is retained.
The spirit is the real you, but your soul possesses the tools you need to function as a human being. As a Christian, when you die, your physical body will be discarded and replaced by the resurrection body when Jesus returns. But your spirit man goes either to heaven or hellfire. So the soul is the central part of man. Within that soul is the source of knowledge and intelligence, the source of love, affection, and consciousness. That soul gives you the capacity to choose or decide. So the centrality of that soul makes it very important because it is between the body and the spirit. It can swing to either side—the spiritual or the worldly.
It may swing to the attraction of the world or the attraction of the spirit. The soul is so important that Jesus said in Mark 8:36, “For what shall it profit a man if he shall gain the whole world and lose his soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?”
I took time to make this explanation so that you can understand why the merchants of the earth are very wicked. They run a wicked organisation. What a wicked thing it is to buy and sell the souls of men. It is very wicked and very scary to know that there are powers that traffick men just like drugs.
There have been occasions of slave trades all over the world. The slave trade has a lot of horror attached to it, but what we are talking about is much more horrible. A lot of atrocities are done against men in darkness. Without the power of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ, man is useless and powerless against these forces of darkness. They trade with souls and gamble with souls. Meaning that even as you are sitting there down there, your mind, will, emotion, and intellect might have been traded off. No wonder some will sit and sit for exams and fail and fail.
No wonder the angel of blessing finds it difficult to hand over things to a person because the person is not there. The soul has been traded off and will only return to the person on the day of judgement, meaning that the person will never achieve their highest potential in life. And there are so many people going around today in our world whose souls have been put on sale and traded off. Are you in this programme, and anytime something good is coming your way, tragedy happens and the road is closed? Are you here, and you know internally that you are supposed to be at the top, but there are some forces dragging you down and keeping you below?
Are you here, and what you are seeing about your life in your dream world is so high and fantastic, but in the physical, nothing? Are you here and someone is looking at you and saying “You do not look like the daddy we used to have” or “You do not look like the person I married”? Are you here, and you always dream of being lost? Are you here, and you see yourself as having a double personality? Are you here, and you feel lifeless? The truth is that there are powers going around hunting for the souls of men. They summon people’s spirits, and once you yield to that summon, unless you really seriously pray to return to your normal self, it is difficult.
It is even worse when your spirit man is summoned and you are not even aware. When somebody is like that, their lives are characterised by all kinds of things, like:
– heavy sleeping.
– unpredictable nature.
– suicidal attempts.
– things moving about in the body because they have been summoned out of their body. It is a strategy.
I am going to pray one prayer now, and let there be a 21-fold amen. It is a tragedy when you sleep and you feel like you were sleeping, but all through the night, somebody was trading with your soul, sending you on errands all over the place. This is why your amen should be volcanic.
===> Father I am praying for anyone here that right now the enemy is trafficking with their souls; right now: receive your deliverance! In the name of Jesus.
It is also a tragedy when a person’s soul is being traded off using pentecostal witchcraft. There are many fellowships where there is a man there who controls everybody with prophecy and vision. The members do not read the Bible; they only want prophecy and vision. “What did you see?” “What has God said?” They are pentecostal witchcrafts and soul traders. They are agents to recruit souls. What is the business of Jesus with the colour of a person’s pant? These are agents to recruit souls, and a lot of lazy Christians, too lazy to pray even in tongues for an hour, are victims. They love prophecy and vision.
And when you say “This vision or prophecy you are seeing has no backing in the scriptures”, they look at you and say, “Is everything written in the Bible?” A man has seven wives, and he is telling you that the more wives he has, the more his power increases. He is seeing vision for you, and you are saying “Baba, thank you, sir”, You are selling your soul. Those who got their names from shaking and vibrating prophets need to better shake their names to renounce that thing if they must move ahead.
I have been to a place, and this prophet began to shake and vibrate and say “Thus saith the Lord, ‘this is the name of this baby according to the book of Daniel'”. But we are Bible students, and we have never seen such a name. And so we said “Excuse me, spirit, that name you just mentioned is not in the Bible”. He said “It is in Daniel”. I said “But it is not there”. He said “Okay, it is in Daniel from heaven”. How can you ban a man from sleeping at home and ask him to come and sleep on the church floor for seven days? If you are here and you have ever done that sort of thing, your soul is suffering from spiritual injury now. It has been traded off.
They took you to a place, took off your clothes, threw them into the river, and you walked away naked? Your soul has been traded off. You are an able-bodied man, and a prophetess is taking sponges and soap to bathe you? Your soul has been traded off. No wonder you have been struggling. Now there are multitudes of false prophets, agents of the devil, to recruit souls. Preachers with multiple souls who preach about success and prosperity but not about heaven, holiness, or hellfire. They talk to people about God’s kindness and mercy, but they do not tell people that the same God is a God of judgement.
At our young age in the choir, we had been to a burial to sing, and all of a sudden, some men rushed into the place, chased all of us out, said, “He belongs to us,” and took the corpse inside. Unfortunately, this person was a preacher. That sort of person is just recruiting souls. There are also direct satanic agents. They are amongst us. They are not humans.
You call for a night party, and they will be there. They could dress properly or haggardly, and you will not be able to discern who they are. They are agents assigned to dispatch souls to hellfire to hunt for blood and souls.
Are you here, and there was a time somebody died, and you followed people to go and find out the cause of the death, and so you went to a necromancer? Then they said they were calling out the spirits of the dead to find out who killed them. By merely following them there, you sold your soul. This is a very serious matter. There are also very wicked personalities around who use other people’s lives to keep them younger. What kind of thing is this? A boy of 25 years old has a girlfriend named 65 years old, and the woman is almost like his grandmother. There is an exchange programme going on.
A man of 75 is befriending a girl of 18 years old. May God have mercy on the girl. May God have mercy on that boy. When people engage in such things, those young ones generally end up with short lives. Sisters should recognise that there are evil occultic men who are told to bring blood from freshly disvirgined girls to renew their evil contract to sell off their souls. There are many too who have ungodly soul links and unexplainable attachments, still married but attached to the former boyfriend or girlfriend.
All these are strategies that the enemy uses to pull people into their evil market and sell them off.
===> I am praying for somebody here today; if they have sold you into any of these evil markets, receive your deliverance now! In the name of Jesus. (a sevenfold amen).
But the most dangerous market is the market in the second heaven. The seat of Lucifer is the most dangerous market of them all. It is not a market for small wickedness. It is attended by terribly wicked men, ranging from strongmen to territorial strongmen to grandmasters and weird wicked organisations. No wonder the Bible says “There is wickedness in the heavenlies”.
===> I am praying for somebody here: if your blood is on any evil altar, receive your deliverance! In the name of Jesus.
===> If the hair from your body or your body parts are on any evil altar, receive deliverance! In the name of Jesus.
===> If you are noticing a heavy load in your life, let that load go back to the senders! In the name of Jesus.
===> If you have been hearing strange voices, let those voices go back to the senders! In the name of Jesus.
And so, beloveth, tonight we have serious prayers to pray, to recover men from the market of darkness, to buy yourself back if you have been sold, and to possess your possession. There is a difference between clearing the bush, planting, and barricading. That is what this meeting is all about. You cleared the bush. After clearing the bush, you begin to plant. After planting, you barricade the plant so that the enemy will not have access to that place again.
1. Shout the Blood of Jesus seven aggressive times, then shout seven times, “My life is not for sale, in the name of Jesus!”
1. Powers that have vowed that I will not celebrate, you are liars; die! In the name of Jesus.
2. Serpents and scorpions, calling my name, die! In the name of Jesus.
3. Powers calling my name from the spirit world, you are liars; die! In the name of Jesus.
4. (Pray this two-hot times.) Womb of the wicked, caging my opportunities, burst by fire! In the name of Jesus.
5. Anywhere my name is mentioned for evil in darkness, God of Elijah, turn them upside down! In the name of Jesus.
