 3 Sweet Things That Keep Sending Many Men To Their Early Graves

Manhood is sacred, and male folks have been adorned with unique glory by God the Eternal Creator. As expected, the evil devil is aware of this, and he is extremely jealous. The devil hates you sorely, and he is already eager to do what he knows how to do best: "steal, kill and destroy" (John 10:10).

In history, and all through the Bible, there are several incidents where the devil successfully ruined glorious men and turned them into ashes. He utilized several mediums, particularly via what our fathers summarised as the "3 Gs". They are:

1. Gold (Love for money)

2. Girls (the Opposite gender)

3. Glory (Pride)

Let's briefly explore each.

1. Gold (Love for money)

At different times in history, many men have entered the pit of self-destruction through their great obsession with money. For instance, in the Bible (Joshua 7), we saw the story of a man called Achan whose love for money prompted him to steal what is forbidden. Unfortunately, the act led to his death (and he even implicated his family members).

Never make money your master. Money is a bad master, and it will make you a slave; prompting you to indulge in dangerous things just to acquire material things - stealing, kidnapping, killing others for money, etc. The Bible says "For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows." (I Timothy 6:10 )

Our Lord Jesus Christ says: "But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you." (Matthew 6:33)

As a man, when you walk with God intimately, He will bless you greatly. "The blessing of the Lord makes one rich, And He adds no sorrow with it." (Proverbs 10:22)

2. Girls (the Opposite gender)

Many men at different points in history have entered their premature graves via the route of members of the opposite gender, usually through illicit sexual encounters. One glaring case study, as far as such a discourse as this is concerned, is that of Samson. Samson's endowments attracted immoral women. Like Samson, immoral women will always come your way too. Unfortunately, Samson went against God's will, and he was destroyed. 

God's Will for sex is that all manner of sexual pleasure should be shared only between a married man and his female wife inside the safe confines of their marriage institution.

As a man in this generation, you must learn wisdom and learn to tame your healthy sexual urges (hence they put you into trouble). You should not have anything to do with just any kind of lady. Many people (both males and females) out there are possessed by demons, and are used by the devil to lead others into destruction. Yes, in fact, many beautiful-looking folks out there are actually direct agents of the devil - terrible and evil witches, belong to dark kingdoms, and are possessed with evil spirits. 

3. Glory (Pride)

Many great men at various times in history died untimely due to Pride. Manhood is synonymous with strength and power. But you see, strength and power can be deceptive, as it can sponsor pride in you (you begin seeing yourself beyond what you are). Pride comes before a fall (meaning, if you are proud as a man, it's just a matter of time, your pride will get you crashed). Pride leads men into boldly putting their necks under a deadly axe!

Hence, as a man, you should humble yourself under God and be submissive to Him. It is pride to think you own your life and that you can live life without God.

It is wisdom and humility to submit to the Lordship of Jesus Christ and have an intimate righteous relationship with the Holy Spirit.
