DESTRUCTIVE “VISIONS” IN MARRIAGE

DESTRUCTIVE “VISIONS” IN MARRIAGE

I sat across the round table from a woman and her husband recently as they sought counsel from a team of counselors concerning their marriage.
She started out by telling us of how spiritual she is and how she hears God and knows His call is on her life.
Then she started telling of all her husband’s faults and ungodly behaviours and irresponsibility and on and on and on…
By the time her husband spoke up it was discovered that she has carefully avoided the bone of contention, the main reason why her husband took the steps that led to her calling for the meeting that night. She had accused him of two very serious and defamatory acts that she claimed she had facts to prove them. He wanted her to prove her claims there and then.
 
It was discovered that she had based her claims on “visions”, “prophesies”, and “dreams”. She believed so much in the “spectacular” and it was ripping her home apart right before her eyes. She had so much faith in the “seers” but unknowingly to her she has lost regard for the word of God.
 
Her husband claimed she was very stubborn and disrespects him so very much. And right before the three of us, she displayed her disregard for her husband. I believe largely due to the things she had been seeing in her visions and what the “seers” had been telling her.
You cannot claim to be godly when you do not obey God’s instruction, God CANNOT be mocked!
 
I am not sharing this to make the man appear blameless, he was not and he acknowledged it.
The reason I share this is because this is not the first, second or third time I have had this kind of encounter.
Women in their quest to know “more” have ruined their homes because they become gullible to so called seers who tell them all manner of lies just to keep them coming back, they would rather depend on these people who manipulate them and mess with their minds than obey God’s written word.
Truth is, any seer who tells you to rebel against your husband, tells you he is a witch and tells you to do anything contrary to God’s word is not sent by God. He seeks to destroy your home. Many that I know of who insisted on going against God’s instruction as regards their marital relationship are no longer in their marriages as I write, some have even fallen into the deception of these prophets and now have children for them.
 
Suspicion and insecurity drive women to the wrong places wanting to know something that is not existent and have ruined their marriages in the process.
I believe in the finality and power of God’s word. God’s word is the standard to run any life marriage. Hence any dream, prophecy or vision that goes contrary to God’s word does not hold any ground for me.
The word of God has power to deal with any and every thing. It is the real supernatural, and a prayer of faith can bring down God’s supernatural power in my life and marriage.
I would rather sit on the word of God, pray and trust God for my marriage than spend my time and money on the devil and grant him access to my marriage.
I will not allow spiritual laziness and the quest for a quick fix to lure me into demonic ties.
 
I have heard that some husbands fall for the enemy too in this regard and I want to really appeal to every spouse to beware of the tricks of the enemy, stand on God’s word only and fight for your homes and refuse the enemy’s deception in your marriage.

    1. Praise God sis! Thanks a lot for coming by, I believe you were blessed by it!
      Have a super blessed day and greet the big guy for me!

  2. May you still have such blessings!

    1. Amen! And thanks a lot Tess!
      Do have a super blessed day!
      Love

  3. This is such an important story to tell. My husband and I got married fairly young, although age has little to do with some of the issues we’ve experienced. “Seers” are omnipresent and a true threat. We are trying to stay prayed up because we definitely need guidance in how we conduct ourselves, how we parent, and how we love and respect one another. Thank you for sharing. Also please visit be-quoted.com for our very first KIDS GIVEAWAY!

    1. Prayer sure does kepe us in tune with God.Thanks a lot for coming by and sharing with us.

  4. Ugochi, you are such a blessing to our marriages, may God continue to bless your marriage. Yes, God’s word has all the answers we are looking for.

    1. Thanks a lot Eya! I appreciate your encouragements.

  5. There’s no reason to go look for a seer to see things for you. Homes have been wrecked truly from false seers and prophets.
    God help us all.

    1. Amen my sister! Amen!

  6. Wow! I didn’t realize that so many marriages suffer because they do not trust in God’s word and healing to be a guide for their marriages. It’s easy to seek quick fixes, but they do not suffice like God can. Thanks for this!

    1. They do not suffice. Not at all Caramel, not at all…
      Thanks for coming by, have a super blessed day!
      Love

  7. we are all called to be servants…

    1. Yes we are Annmarie, may we always remember that!

  8. The right piece of advice at the right time. Emphasis from our pulpits is partially responsible for this ungodly pursuit for signs and wonders. Our ministers should direct the flock with the undiluted Word of God.
    Holy living and pursuit for the fruit of the Spirit was our focus. How to walk uprightly and please Jesus was our dream. What is the focus today? May God purge His sanctuary and make our ministers the Apostles of Old.

    1. Amen Brother!
      The Church a complete re-orientation.
      Thanks a lot for coming by.

  9. Thanks Ugo for sharing on a topic that has ripped many homes apart, especially in our clime. The scriptures say that the word of God is a more sure word of prophecy. No other vision or prophecy by man overrides God’s word. I know what you are talking about exactly and it is a pity how gullible some women can get. Looking for solutions to their problems in all the wrong places. It is gross ignorance.

    1. Really sad! It breaks my heart how people can destroy their homes with their eyes wide open.

  10. Hmmm… yet another reason I have a hard time excepting women in the pulpit. We, as women, are called to teach and exhort the younger ones, but not the men. I’ve seen to many cases of women who are “more spiritual” than their husbands and to me, it looks like they tore the marriage apart. Not the man. Hopefully that’s not to harsh. It’s just how I feel 🙂

    1. It is okay to express your opinion Kay. When a wife thinks she knows better than her husband and even rubs it in, it totally displeases God.
