A young lady identified as Blessing Jimoh has been arrested in Ondo State and paraded along with other criminals after she reportedly murdered her Mother Ijeoma Odo with a cutlass. According to the nations, the lady confessed that she was told by her pastor that her mother is a witch.
However, the pastor which gave her the message is currently on the run as he's nowhere to be found while the lady is held in custody by the police. The act of the lady has sparked mixed reactions as it was shared on various social media platforms.
However, there are things we should take note of especially as believers.
1. God is not an author of confusion, he can't send you to kill someone when he commanded us not to kill. Therefore, any prophecy that says you should kill or any pastor that orders you to kill is not from God.
Also, the lady didn't say if her pastor gave her direct order to kill her mother. If it's so then we shouldn't rush to make hasty decisions on our own after getting a message from our pastor.
2. Whenever a pastor or a prophet tells you to make move on something or do a particular thing to solve your problems or challenges, don't rush into action without doing these things;
First, search the scripture if what your pastor is telling you is in line with the word of God.
Ask other believers for counseling and their opinion before making a move.
Finally, pray to God to lead, guide, or direct you as you proceed in doing what your pastor told you.
3. No matter the challenge or problem we are facing in life, taking the life of someone won't solve the problem, it may only make things worse.
