MIND GAMES (4th & concludingpart)


(continued from 3rd part)

“If I were you, I’ll save my neck”, the devil entered into the prophet’s mind to start another game. Lucifer went on to show him how Jezebel single-handedly jettisoned God’s established Jewish worship and successfully installed her Baal religion in Israel“. “I, Elijah, the dreaded, famous prophet of God stands to be put to shame by a mere alien woman. I cannot allow Satan to receive pleasurable satisfaction!” Elijah did not realize that all Satan did was just to script those lines and played it back in the prophet’s mind, using the prophet’s very voice. Elijah thought that he was the one thinking those thoughts. He believed that his fears were God sanctioned. Elijah was felled by a game of fear. He had been had!

This one was sired by Iscariot, who was christened Judas. His name means praise (of Jehovah). What Satan had for a long time sown in him was greed. Judas Iscariot could not resist the game of misappropriation. He saw himself getting rich. In Satan’s bid to make him an incorrigible figure he fed Judas on the meals of apathy towards the ministry of Jesus. Satan made him console and embolden himself with, “After all no one will suspect me of embezzlement”.

Apostle Peter was caught in the web of the mind game as well. Peter would rather be in the good books of his religious Jewish people than instill confidence in the hearts of Gentle converts as Galatians 2:11-12, “But when Peter was come to Antioch, I withstood him to the face, because he was to be blamed. For before that certain came from James, he did eat with the Gentiles: but when they were come, he withdrew and separated himself, fearing them which were of the circumcision”, enlightens.

The designer of this mind game is the great angel, Lucifer, who degenerated into the rapscallion, bent on a mission of perfidious mendacity. This entity has nothing to hope for: eternally condemned to hell. To place Satan on top of his fiendish game he had to set up religious institutions. Man was made to worship his Maker. Sin removed man from the fellowship that developed into a rapport with God. Man felt a vacuum and rather than cry out for help from his Creator man sunk into a pity party. Satan, capitalizing on man’s resultant vulnerability, mesmerized him into seeing himself in a quagmire. Religion was the opium that Lucifer presented as the panacea. He entered into an uncanny pact with philosophizing brilliant thinkers who upped the game of the mind.

Lucifer, the god of all religions, establishes and sets the rules of religious activities to galvanize his spiritual lordship over man and of the mind game. Take a good look at religious adherents’ epileptic fits in the rites of worship. This is the validation of demonic possession. “And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets” is what the Bible says in 1Corinthians 14:32. A master stroke, evil in its ingenuity, by the Devil, is the in-road into the Church à la Catholicism. It was his deceptive in-road into Church affairs which erected for the Church, the façade of religion. Lucifer did this to perfect a portrayal of ‘the way, truth and life’ in his imposture bid of Jesus. Of the seven billion population of the globe, probably six billion are religionists or atheists, which actuates his desire of Isaiah 14:14, “I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High”.

The cultivation of religious institutions, giving room for atheism, produced the fruition of the spirit of flippancy, which ensured Cain’s disrespect for God’s instruction as pertaining to the sacrificial elements for sin. Satan knows that most times God would not descend on sinners immediately so, he treats them with the spirit of flippant tendencies and making sure he gives them successes in every venture. Cain ran a city of immense wealth, the delusion of which made him to think that he did not need God, the Creator. Very rich and successful individuals of the world of today, are atheists, agnostics and cultists; and it is all part of the mind game deceit. Why would you hear a lot of them query, “When will this your Jesus come?” and conclude with, ”Let’s face facts, God doesn’t really exist…”.

Through ancestral worship, Satan has networked his trade through the hearts of everybody. Who does not have, in his ancestry, a familiar spirit of demonism to contend with? I, personally, come from a family of masquerade worshipping ancestors. Once upon a time, in my dream, I made a purchase of a ballpoint pen. I asked the seller to give me something to test the smooth writing quality of the blue ballpoint pen. A card was handed to me to ensure I was buying what it was worth parting with my money. I just decided to scribble a scrawl and lo and behold a very legible script, not in the blue ink I intended buying was, “Alaaake, you are under my feet”, in red ink!

Those who play games with Satan are always ending up as his trophies. You will make Lucifer the most miserable loser in your life when you decide never to partake in his games. Every game of his is always a dirty one so, is there any way you can play his evil game and you will remain spiritually unstained? Ponder.

By the grace of God, in the name of Jesus and through the leading of the Holy Spirit I had slammed the evil spirit inherent in the Ojewale of Alaaake, bruising him under my feet shortly (Romans 16:20). So, I am always saying that Alaaake, the demonic familiar spirit of my family home, and I have met and I have shown him who is greater and he knows. I, therefore, bare Ojewale with a certain pride knowing fully well that anytime I answer the name Ojewale that demon remembers how I floored him and that I am fully aware of where he is, as far as we are concerned. Having overcome Lucifer’s representative, Satan is vanquished because the Bible warns, “Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices” (2Cor 2:11).

I have decided never to play any game with the Devil. He has been in existence for billions of years, hence, too formidable an opponent to trifle with. I am constantly looking unto Jesus (Hebrews 12:2) in order to exercise my faith thereby strengthening myself against every noema of Lucifer, who is now Satan, the Devil. Looking unto Jesus, most certainly, takes my focus off Satan, making me unavailable for his wicked mind games.

MIND GAMES (3rd part)






mind_games.jpgSatan’s major crave is to receive worship. The only way to actualize this crazy yearn is by making beings to throng his presence to solve the problems he actually designed. To seek Lucifer is to be alienated from the true God, called Jehovah. Some of the many ways of seeking satanic aid are belomancy (A method of divination by arrows, a number of which are marked in certain ways, then mixed and drawn) see Hosea 4:12; hepatoscopy (divination by the examination of the liver), rhabdomancy (throwing of sticks or arrows in the air to seek demonic guidance), teraphim (use of images for divination), necromancy (communication with the dead) Deuteronomy 18:11; 1 Samuel 28:8; 2Kings 21:6; Leviticus 19:32, 20:6 & Isaiah 8:19-20. Astrology (reading the stars and coming to conclusion on the bases of their positions and relation to each other) of which Isaiah 47:13 and Jeremiah 10:2 teach God’s position and hydromancy (divination by water) done either by noting the reflections, or inducing a trance by this means (Genesis 44:5, 15).

‘Divination’ found in Ezekiel 21:21 is qesem (keh’-sem): ‘a lot’ (through witchcraft) which is from the root word qasam (kaw-sam): ‘to distribute, that is, determine by lot or magical scroll; by implication to divine’. This is what Lucifer does always: distribution of polluted enrichment from the heart of egregious wickedness. ‘Bright’ is qalal (kaw-lal’): ‘to be (causatively make) light, literally (swift, small, sharp,’ and the definition that best suits in this context is ‘swift’ because what he actually did was to ‘shake’ the arrows either in the quiver or in the air, each having been marked with intended location. Where the arrow points or the inscription on the arrow which comes up first is the oracular choice; this is belomancy.

Not satisfied, Nebuchadnezzar ‘consulted’ {sha’al or sha’el (shaw-al’): ‘to ask, enquire, borrow, beg’} with ‘images’, which in Hebrew is: teraphıym (ter-aw-feme’): ‘idolatry, idols, image(s), teraphim, family idol: a kind of idol used in household shrine or worship’. Images of idolatry are ancestral demon spirits (they are the ‘familiar spirits’ who are actually consulted by diviners who are able to give very accurate past deeds of an individual; (cool game), which Lucifer, the devil, uses to place a binding curse of an allegiance. When a person agrees to play games a demon is assigned to assume absolute control, not only of the individual but on his progenitors down the generations. I come from a family of masquerade idolatry, and my surname, Ojewale means, ‘the masquerade comes home’. The head of the ancestral masquerades is called, Alaaake, meaning ‘axer i.e. owner or wielder of axe’; a very powerful entity who is consulted especially for protection and the fruit of the womb.

Finally, after having received a guarantee from the ‘assurance policy’ of his teraphim (Alaaake gives a special assurance to his ‘children’ during the annual masquerade worship festival), the Bible says, “he looked in the liver”, because he wanted to be in possession of an indubitable ‘go ahead’ to a successful campaign. How I wish Christians will seek the LORD in this way! The word ‘liver’ is: ‘kabed (kaw-bade’): ‘the liver; the liver (as the heaviest organ)’. This is hepatoscopy, the divination of which is by cutting, especially, a bird in two; and before it dies the liver is observed by touching it or throwing it up and where it faces as it splits is the answer to the enquiry.

Hosea 4:12, “My people ask counsel at their stocks, and their staff declareth unto them: for the spirit of whoredoms hath caused them to err, and they have gone a whoring from under their God”; is a clear warning against belomancy and rhabdomancy. The word, ‘staff’ maqqel or maqqelah (mak-kale) going by BDB Definition: ‘rod, staff a. rod, stick b. staff (in travel) c. wand (of diviner)’. “There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, 11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. 12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee (Deuteronomy 18:10-12). These verses warn against divination, astronomy, belomancy, witchcraft and familiar spirits, which Saul (first king of Israel) was guilty of in 1Samuel 28:8 and Manasseh (the worst and most idolatrous king of Judah) perpetrated in 2Kings 21:6; of which God had warned in Leviticus 19:32, 20:6 & Isaiah 8:19-20. Manasseh whose name means ‘causing to forget’ decided, like so many, to forget their Maker, unfortunately.

“…Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators, stand up, and save thee from these things…” Isaiah 47:13 is God’s prophetic challenge to Babylonian idolatrous dependence on astrological proclivity. Jeremiah 10:2, “Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them”. The word ‘dismayed’ is: chathath : (khaw-thath’): ‘to prostrate; hence to break down, either (literally) by violence, or (figuratively) by confusion and fear’. After all said and done the mind game will leave an unpleasant sour taste in the mouth of players. Genesis 44:5, “Is not this it in which my lord drinketh, and whereby indeed he divineth? ye have done evil in so doing”. ‘Indeed’ and ‘divineth’ have the same word: nachash : (naw-khash’): ‘to hiss, that is, whisper a (magic) spell; generally to prognosticate’. In verse fifteen ‘divine’ has the same nachash and it is hydromancy that is meant, which Egyptians and Easterners still practise. We cannot expect Joseph, a pious man, to delve into what he had merely designed to get his brothers to do what he wanted.

Elijah, in Hebrew, is ‘elıyah ‘elıyahu (ay-lee-yaw’) {Elijah or Eliah} means “my God is Jehovah” or ” Yah(u) is God”. As bold and courageous this prophet of God is, he did allow himself to be brought under Satan’s mind control. The fascinating thing about Elijah was that he had just dealt decisively with hundreds of idolatrous prophets of Baal, to prove the supremacy of his Jehovah. “Then Jezebel sent a messenger unto Elijah, saying, So let the gods do to me, and more also, if I make not thy life as the life of one of them by to morrow about this time” (1Kings 19:2). One expects the great Elijah to summon a second contest to prove the Almightiness of his God, but let us read the account of the Bible in the next 3rd and 4th verses, “And when he saw that, he arose, and went for his life, and came to Beersheba, which belongeth to Judah, and left his servant there. (4) But he himself went a day’s journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a juniper tree: and he requested for himself that he might die; and said, It is enough; now, O LORD, take away my life; for I am not better than my fathers”.

MIND GAMES (2nd part)



The good Noah opened his heart for an evil in-road (Genesis 9:20-25), and the result reopened the wound of satanic influence. It was Nimrod’s turn who accepted to tow the line of the games. The love of God meant nothing to him so he went on to form a global religion of which he emerged as one of the deified trinity (Nimrod, Tammuz and Semiramis) of the Babylonian worship. Father Abraham listened to the old dragon and he thought he was the one being smart when he said, “Behold now, I know that thou art a fair woman to look upon: 12 Therefore it shall come to pass, when the Egyptians shall see thee, that they shall say, This is his wife: and they will kill me, but they will save thee alive. 13 Say, I pray thee, thou art my sister: that it may be well with me for thy sake; and my soul shall live because of thee”; Genesis 12:11-13.

The truth about this mind game is thus. Any time Satan wants to use you to do his evil deeds he comes into your mind and he does a playback of what he had recorded, fine tuning the voice to sound exactly like your very own. He is a master deceiver. You will believe that it is the ingenuity of your reasoning that you are hatching, not knowing that your thinking faculty has been hijacked. This is the game Lucifer had always enjoyed playing on our intelligence – from Adam to Abraham even unto this day. The game sharpened Isaac’s palate so much as to get him to swap Jacob’s blessing; while Esau went so wide off tangent, depicted by his retaliatory choice of connubiality.

Joseph’s brothers. A game of jealousy was run to its full course in their minds. They were numbered ten (which is the number of trials). This shows that his games are actually trials of our faith, serving to measure our level of steadfastness to God’s word. They played the game and failed. Moses, in Numbers 20:8-12, allowed himself to feel like God –wrong game –trying to corner what belongs to the Most High. Aaron and his elder sister, Miriam were likewise guilty of playing the devil’s game (Numbers 12:1-15) in that they did not accord Moses his rightful leadership.

Samson gave himself up to play the game of fornication. Satan knows which button to press to get anybody wriggling in erotic ecstasy. When you know the rules, like Samson, and you decide to heed ungodly calls, you are running your life to destruction. This was what Samson obstinately did. Our enemy is an orgiastic animal. This same frenetic opium he makes sure he pours forth into those who play his game. Hophni and his brother Phinehas could not manage the power of the deadly opium of cupidity that Satan had shot into their minds (1Samuel 2:12-17). Hophni {comes from the root word chophen (kho’-fen) ‘a fist (only in the dual)’} is rendered Chophniy (khof-nee’) in Hebrew and means ‘pugilist’. This no doubt accounted for his brutishness. Phinehas or the Hebraic ‘Piynchac (pee-nekh-aws’) means: ‘mouth of a serpent’. The two of them behaved very much like the old serpent, did they not (1Sam. 2:22-25)? Satan certainly knows where to attack every individual. He knows us inside out. The fiendish priests harkened not the instructions of God. They played games of darkness. They perished! 1Samuel 4:11.

You will think that any saint close to God will scare Lucifer but they are his sworn targets. To David, a beloved of Jehovah, Satan threw his dice of deceitful game. David had more than a fair share of women to enable him to reject being mesmerized into the mind game of promiscuity. Well, how could David (whose name means ‘beloved’) not succumb to adultery when he had chosen to love polygamy as well? The one who made you fall yesterday should not drop a trickle of sweat in another bid to disgrace you today and tomorrow. The same way the serpent mesmerized our pristine mother to see a good thing in an evil venture so, he goaded David, mentally, to see and to enjoy the softness of the flesh of variety of women. David was only on queue for the next assignment. Little did David know where that adventurous game of many women was leading him. David of all people soiled his personality not only with adultery but with quite an unthinkable murder! Keep clear of satanic games!

He was and is still adjudged the wisest of all human. Of utmost truth is the scripture which apprises, “Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall” [1Corinthians 10:12]. Like many who delve into these games, Solomon was lured into spiritual prostitution when he, first of all, married a whopping one whole thousand wives; then funded the erection of their demonic shrines and the third and worst of all, Solomon visited the shrines of the enemy of God to pay homage to Satan, whose intention all along was to evil-tune the minds of the unwary to suit his caprices. The evil makes sure you are kept far away from God’s word when he introduces the game. One thing his ingenuity gets him do is never to let you know that he has come to steal, kill and destroy you with his game plan. For disregarding the word of God, King Solomon, the wisest, fell for Satan’s antics.

Two things prove that Nebuchadnezer had always been involved with the game. His name, carefully studied, has ‘kadr’ (“power”), zar (“prince”), ‘naatsar’ (“protect”), “Nebo“, a Babylonian god, is described as “the far hearing,” “he of intelligence, who teaches.” The cuneiform arrow head is his emblem; hence named Tir, “arrow.” Answering the Egyptian “Thoth,” the Greek “Hermes,” “Mercury,” the “inspired”. From the definitions above, Nebuchadnezzar can mean: ‘the prince favored by Nebo’, ‘interpreter or nabiy of the gods’, ‘Nebo his protector (from, against misfortune or (kidor “trouble”). The second reason that enabled Satan to control his mind by remote is found in Ezekiel 21:21, “For the king of Babylon stood at the parting of the way, at the head of the two ways, to use divination: he made his arrows bright, he consulted with images, he looked in the liver”. This is a classic example of demonic mind control because it involves seeking success through satanic aid. The definition of Nebuchadnezzar’s name is a validation of the global nature of satanic influence in mind game. This Bible verse informs one of the fact that the Devil is truly involved in man’s ways of life. When he came to a cross road or junction, the devil asked him to seek for direction. Where I come from, in Western Nigeria, idolatrous sacrifices are instructed to be placed at T-junctions or cross-junctions. (to be continued…)

MIND GAMES (1st part)



                                            Brain gears

A pad and a creep both clandestine are the advances of the enemy whose approach is to engage the victim in mind games to the unfair advantage of the adversary. In HIS bid to apprise, especially Christians, of Lucifer’s sidle, God, in 2Corinthians 2:11, points out, “Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices”.

‘Lest’, hinamē (hin’-ah may) in the Greek, is made up of {hina (hin’-ah) ‘that, in order that, so that)’and {me (may) ‘(A primary particle of qualified negation; (adverbially) not, (conjugationally) lest; also (as interrogative implying a negative answer’. Hiname which, therefore, means: in order (or so) that not’, is a serious warning, intimating us of Satanic programming. ‘Satan’ comes in two Greek words of: hupo (hoop-o’): ‘by, under’ and Satanas (sat-an-as’): ‘adversary (the accuser, that is, the devil’.

‘Advantage’ pleonekteō (pleh-on-ek-teh’-o): ‘to be covetous, that is, (by implication) to over reach, get an advantage, defraud, make a gain’ this word comes from pleonektēs (pleh-on-ek’-tace) ‘holding (desiring) more, that is, eager for gain (avaricious, hence a defrauder)’ ‘Ignorant’ agnoeō (ag-no-eh’-o): ‘not to know (through lack of information or intelligence); by implication to ignore (through disinclination)’. ‘Devices’ noema (no-ay’-mah) ‘a perception, that is, purpose, or (by implication) the intellect, disposition, itself’

What these definitions are pointing out simply is that there is an entity who has sworn to destroy God’s ultimate creation and has dug a large, deep hole of deception to keep man in captivity, which is easily observed in his triune manifesto of: ‘to steal, kill & destroy. I thank the LORD God Almighty who has furnished us with the antidote to Lucifer’s mind warping venom. It is found in the old testamental Deuteronomy 6:5, “And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might”. It is also found in Mark 12:30, “And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment”. The key word, here, is ‘love’.

‘Love’, in the Hebraic Deuteronomy, is ‘ahab or ‘aheb (aw-hab’): ‘an affection towards another (sexually or otherwise)’. When you expend the love of God, spiritually and physically, you are completely immersed in Him, with whom we all have to do. The holy One of Israel, this way, is in total control of your mind. You are securely safe. The Greek ‘love’, of Mark 12:30, is agapao (ag-ap-ah’-o) (the verb form of agape`) and agapao ̄ means: ‘to love (in a social or moral sense)’, perhaps from ἄγαν agan (much; or compare [‘agab (aw-gab’)’to breathe after, that is, to love (sensually):])’. Agapao, seen from the light beamed by agab, do transport us to Psalm 42, “As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God”. The same heart is where Satan goes to wreak spiritual havoc.

“Hath God said…?” Satan began his probe into the mind of the first Woman, after he had satisfied himself that it was via the female Adam he could destroy God’s dream. Satan is ever determined to change every man’s destiny. The Woman of the Garden foolishly opened her too important mind and ushered in the enemy, which authorized him to plant his noema in the heart of the unwary first victim. Sad. Satan’s perception – a permeation of acrid pollution – is always anti-Christ. When the Woman opened her mouth to puke an unauthorized, “…we should not touch lest we die…” Satan knew the hook had got a powerful and deadly hold. The rest is an unpalatable history. Satan has continued to disciple unsuspecting children of Eve.

You are bound to lose when you decide to play games with the Devil as it turned out in the case of Adam’s wife, because by the time Satan ended the first game the Bible says, “And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat” [Genesis 3:6]. The Woman began to make confessions out of a mind of delusiveness. She was seeing things which were not there. Every act of sinfulness: greed, usurpation, prostitution, addiction, lies and the likes are engendered by a perception made so real to the intellect of the perceiver.

I do not see any rationale to support why Adam, her husband, would agree to die along with a deranged wife; and mankind had unabatedly degenerated in wanton stupidity that is remote controlled by satanic brainwashing. Of Adam, the Bible teaches, “And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression” (1Tim 2:14); so, what game did he get himself engaged in? Adam opened the doors of his mind to acquiesce to play the game of disobedience.

The noema that destroyed Cain was that of freedom – from Christ’s hegemony -, quite akin to what warped his mother – for the eating of the forbidden fruit would transform her into her husband’s lord (in the new world). The proof of Cain’s derailment was his flagrant disdain for God’s establishment. Like all who have neglected the reality of God’s nature, Cain did not want Christ. Lamech was also involved in the mind games. He was missioned to destroy the marriage institution. Lamech served Lucifer well. He was the first to marry two wives (the first, Adah means ‘ornament’, while the second, whose name was Zillah, means ‘shadow’) with an intention to kill and destroy marriage. Lamech, whose name means ‘destruction’ was the next murderer after his progenitor, thereby fulfilling satanic game of: steal, kill and destroy.

The evil game player comes into you uninvited –a true gate-crasher–; he is quite unlike God –a nice Gentleman. Any time you look at the opposite sex seductively or with a sexual intent, it is an invitation to play his game; be wise, you are not the one doing the thinking; shut him out! No esoteric cult is worth your initiation; it is only a game designed to mess up human lives. Lucifer hates mankind but he will never disclose this fact to any human connection. Ask the sincere initiates. Poor cultists!
