A Nigerian Clergyman has warned people to refrain from celebrating lustful lucre on February 14 generally known as Valentine Day so that it does not turn to a day of death to them.
Mike Bamiloye, the Founder and President of Mount Zion Faith Ministries and Mount Zion Television, stated this on his Twitter handle on Saturday, February 13, saying many people would slaughter their destinies on the bed of lustful pleasure this Valentine’s day.
His post reads ”TOMORROW IS DAY OF DEATH Tomorrow evening is a ‘Night of Fun’, when many men and ladies will slaughter their destinies on the bed of lustful pleasure.
”By next morning it is done! Destiny Auctioned to a young man or a lady whose future has been mortgaged to the devil….
”Happy Valentine! If Joseph had had a fun with Portiphar’s wife, he would never have got to the palace to see the type of Glory he saw. He escaped that trap that would have aborted his destiny on which so many lives in Egypt and Canaan land, depended upon.
”There is a great story in Proverbs 7:6-27. It is a sad story of a young man on his own “Valentine Night”. He had thought he wanted to have a fun that night, he had thought he wanted to enjoy himself, but crashed his future in a night of fun.
Proverbs 7:21-23 21 With her enticing speech she caused him to yield, With her flattering lips she seduced him. 22 Immediately he went after her, as an ox goes to the slaughter, Or as a fool to the correction of the stocks
23 Till an arrow struck his liver. As a bird hastens to the snare, He did not know it would cost his life,” he wrote.
Meanwhile, there are places you must avoid during this Valentine Day.
Crowded Places: The world at the moment is experiencing a new strain of Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2), many months after the emergence of the parent dreaded disease, COVID-19 from Wuhan in China.
It is, therefore, advisable to at this time avoid crowded places like (overcrowded malls, party houses, uncontrolled parks and many more) in others to curb the spread of the viral disease.
Hidden Locations: It is no longer new that many would on this day be invited to special events, some of which the locations are new to the guests.
One of the major challenges Nigeria is battling with at the moment is the issue of insecurity; people are being killed, kidnapped and assaulted on the daily in different locations. It is therefore advisable to avoid honouring any event where which the location is new to you, hidden or appear unsafe.
While desperate to enjoy yourself to the fullest on this day of Valentine, any place you had planned to spend your day, scrutinize the place and if there be any suspicious faces, moves, you are advised to immediately exit the door for your safety, especially when you know nobody in the gathering.
There were records of people, most especially ladies who were nowhere to be found after Valentine’s Day.
Naija News understands that some of these people were invited to secluded locations by friends they met with on social media. Avoid going out to secluded places to party with people you are meeting for the first time, to save yourself and family from the unforeseen.
