Judges 16:5 “And the lords of the Philistines came up unto her, and said unto her, Entice him, and see wherein his great strength lieth, and by what means we may prevail against him, that we may bind him to afflict him: and we will give thee every one of us eleven hundred pieces of silver.”
People want their inadequacies, errors, bad attitudes and misbehaviours to be given kudos. The moment you point out a little fault or error in what a man is doing, he goes offensive.
Many people claim and pray with Daniel 11:32 but once you operate under the spirit of flattery, it will not work. Delilah and the lords of the Philistines came to entice Samson and they succeeded.
Friend, don’t look for people that will massage your ego. Be wary of people that tells you to carry on even though you’re on the path of destruction.
Most leaders all over the world surround themselves with sycophants who only tells them what they want to hear. They terrify the opposition, maim and kill anyone who points out their errors and inadequacies.
No matter who you are, you need to have a spiritual father or authority who can put you right without flattery. You need to fight this spirit with everything in you.
Flattery has brought many people down, and you must know you’re not immune to its effect. Hear this:
Acts 12:21 “And upon a set day Herod, arrayed in royal apparel, sat upon his throne, and made an oration unto them.”
Acts 12:22 “And the people gave a shout saying, It is the voice of a god, and not of a man.”
Herod was given to flattery and he took it to a whole new level, he equated himself to God Almighty and God showed him how he handles flattery:
Acts 12:23 “And immediately the angel of the Lord smote him, because he gave not God the glory: and he was eaten of worms, and gave up the ghost”
Flattery brought down Samson, Nebuchadnezzar, Herod and several others, don’t let it bring you down Have a spiritual father and mentor who will not pamper you!
