In this life young people apply for jobs and hope for an offer. Some offers are said to be lucrative, when the employment letter states  the benefits attached to the employment.

In this life human beings make offers to people and Satan also  offers people opportunities.

God makes offers to all men. In God’s offer is attached eternal life,  Satan offers hell.

Human beings offer material benefits in the offer they make. It could be much more also.

Some accept offers to carry out abominable roles. Do not forget that God rewards all works whether good or evil including every secret thing.

Today my caution to us is this,  let us beware of the offer  we  accept.

Look at the following offers

(1) Satan said to Jesus :

4:8 Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;

4:9 And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.

4:10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. (Matthew r : 8 – 10 ).

This is the  beginning of trouble for many people. People who want to possess the whole world will  jump on this offer.

Yes, some have received the benefits from satan  and in the midst of such wealth have lived their whole  lives in sorrows covered by “agwada”or “big robes.”

So today many have sold their soul for material things. Why must you worship the creature or the devil, so to receive money cars,  houses and positions.


(2) Jesus said to Peter :

4:18 And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers.

4:19 And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.

4:20 And they straightway left their nets, and followed him. (Matthew 4 : 18 – 20).

God did not call us to give us  the whole world, He calls us to be fishers of men, to live on earth according to  His purpose, so in the end we would have eternal life. The world will offer you money and at the end there will be eternal hell.

The wise man said :

11:30 The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.

11:31 Behold, the righteous shall be recompensed in the earth: much more the wicked and the sinner. (Proverbs 11 : 30 – 31).

Let us acceot offers that will make us fruitful for God.

Beware of  lucrative offers with an evil appendage, at the end all the glamour ends in the pit.

Barak King of Moab  invited Baalam to curse Israel so that he will overcome them.


22:16 And they came to Balaam, and said to him, Thus saith Balak the son of Zippor, Let nothing, I pray thee, hinder thee from coming unto me:

22:17 For I will promote thee unto very great honour, and I will do whatsoever thou sayest unto me: come therefore, I pray thee, curse me this people. (Numbers 22 : 16 – 17).

This was an offer to carry out an abominable act  over a people, who God has blessed. God warned Balaam and all attempt to do that was frustrated, because each time Balaam opened his mouth  to curse Israel God put blessing Israel  in his tongue. God made it known, “the man He has blessed can no man curse.”

Finally Balak out of anger said to Balaam,

“24:10 And Balak’s anger was kindled against Balaam, and he smote his hands together: and Balak said unto Balaam, I called thee to curse mine enemies, and, behold, thou hast altogether blessed them these three times.

24:11 Therefore now flee thou to thy place: I thought to promote thee unto great honour; but, lo, the LORD hath kept thee back from honour.

24:12 And Balaam said unto Balak, Spake I not also to thy messengers which thou sentest unto me, saying,

24:13 If Balak would give me his house full of silver and gold, I cannot go beyond the commandment of the LORD, to do either good or bad of mine own mind; but what the LORD saith, that will I speak?”  (Numbers 24 : 10 – 13).


Some are called men of God and they play the role of Balaam for great offers. Beware God will  not  at the end do what you act.


Some promise to give you this and that , if you will marry them. Those promises are good, but only God makes them to come to pass.

I encourage you to acceot what God said concerning you and not what any man or woman says he will do for you.

I therefore pray with us today and say thus :

“O God make us an offer from Your foreknowledge,  to bless us in Jesus Amen. Give us that blessing which does not go with sorrow in Jesus name Amen.
