Aside from church sermon, we've learnt that we should give to the needy and hungry among us. But the 'needy' are now taking dangerous advantage of this instance and the system is crying for help. A lot of scams are being indulged via the system of giving to the needy. Haven't you seen movies where by a team of individuals would gang up to pretend as the needy and end up scamming or killing a targeted soul? Well those movies we've seeb concerning this aspect are very practically in existence now.
People pretending to be deaf, dumb or blind, move around in various companies, schools and even crowded places to beg for helps and at the end they make a lot of money and it turns to a routine.
The worst aspect is that, they tend to use fetish power to enchant the masses in giving to them since everyone have wisened up. I have heard and encountered a ascenario of such.
During secondary school, there was this man that was moving around schools begging for financial assistance to be used to pay for hospital bill of a claimed boy(in the photo he displayed) with a dangerous disease, information got to us when he went to a nearby school that he had no boy with such sickness, that he's just using the means to extort money. We all agreed not to give to him when he eventually come to our school. Just like a dream, he came, said all the pitiful words and almost all of us gave because the piteous and convincing words were just too much. I think the power caught us and we all surrendered, but let God judge him.
I've heard of begging that led to robbery too. This is very rampant in a crowded environment. They'd come in the form of a begger, when you give in much attention, you'd end up loosing everything.
I remember when I was going to bank with thousands of naira in my bag. I got stopped severally by a group of people. Firstly it was "please can you give me your phone to make call bla bla bla" I bluntly refused and moved ahead. Secondly, two guys on motorcycle approached me, asking me if I know a gold seller within the area, that they have gold to sell, I told them that I had no idea as I'm not used to to the environment, they pleaded that I should follow them to ask people, that if the gold is sold, I'd get my own share, e choke 🤣. I almost agreed and luckily for me I opted out and moved away from them. That was when I realized that it's because of the money in my bag that drew their attention. Now let me ask, is it possible to see money in a zipped-thick-black- school-bag? Isn't that juju(fetish power) at work? They saw the money with their power and came for me, but thank God they failed.
What about preachers in the car park? I should talk about them? Hahaha we all know the experience, using the name of God to collect money. I'm not painting them black as some of them are genuine.
One day around 9:00am, I retuned from the bank to meet a man in our office(eatery), as soon as I entered they directed him to meet me, he came and asked for manager I told him the manger isn't available, he said since the manager is not around it's better he relate with me.
Him: I'm Mr **** from Lagos State, I'm one of the pastor's in so so church(well known church in the country, I can't mention name)
Him: I've been moving around states in the country doing the Evangelical work and God told me that I should enter any fine restaurant/eatery, ask for the manager and demand for food, rice turkey and salad to be precise.
Me: that's wonderful sir, but the manager is not around.
Him: since he's not around and you're next to him, the ball now falls in your court
Me: If I'm ordering food for you sir, I'd be the one to pay and I don't have that capacity for now.
He brought out some booklets and receipts showing me where he had eaten and an ID to show that he's really a clergy from one of the big churches in the country.
Him: my brother this is a directive from God, please just obey.
Me: sir, just like I said I don't have capacity for that. If you can wait for the manager, the seat is yours sir
After much deliberation, he finally decide to leave.
I started pondering, what if God really sent him? Haaa! Could it be that I just chased an angel away? But even that was an angel, he wouldn't come with such persuasion claiming to be a clergy and giving automatum for food. It can't be. Maybe he just wanted to eat free food with the name of God.
