The popular gospel filmmaker, Mike Bamiloye, recently took to his social media page to give out some words of advice to his teeming followers. Mike Bamiloye, while writing on “CARRYING A FALSE IDENTITY”, he cautioned those who are keen dependents of someone else’s identity by living a clone of it and dead ringer for another man’s life to stop else they will end up carrying a burden that is not theirs and also become entangled with someone else suffering.
In his words;
CARRYING A FALSE IDENTITY
Alas! He wasn’t the Person he said he was!.
Behold! She was actually not the Person she said she was!
You must discover the Plans and Purpose of God for your OWN life.
Find out the Plans of God for your OWN life and live it.
When you bear another person’s Name and Identity, you are carrying the life that is not yours.
When you use another Person’s certificate for Admission, you are taking up the Admissions that is NOT THE yours and living another person’s Life.
When you use another Person’s Document to travel out of the Country, you are taking another Person’s Trip and Living another Person’s Life.
When you get Employed with Another Person’s Document, you are eating another Man’s Sweat and Living Another Person’s Life.
When you draw back your actual age and reduce your Date of Birth because of Employment Benefits, you have began to live another Person’s Life.
WHEN JACOB, WHOM GOD HAD ALREADY LOVED AND DECLARED SHALL BE SERVED BY HIS ELDER BROTHER, SAID HIS NAME WAS NOT JACOB BUT “ESAU”,
He opted to Live another Man’s Life.
He signed to live the life of ESAU. his Brother instead of his.
He did not have Hairy Skin, but he covered his arms with goat’s Skin and wore his Brother’s body odour just to convince and deceive his father that he was “ESAU”.
Then, he began to live the life of Esau.
He began to SUFFER the SUFFERINGS of ESAU.
He began to labour and sweat the LABOUR and the SWEAT that was meant for ESAU. IT WAS A BITTER EXCHANGE OF DESTINY, that Esau was so blessed with material things that he said he needed no Gifts from Jacob when Jacob wanted to Bribe him with gifts of material things.
Jacob saw that his brother was so contented and even confessed that his face was like the face of an angel.
But what of Jacob, who stole and lived with another Person’s Identity for many years?.
He looked so stressed up and flattened out.
He was wickedly so Cheated and betrayed by Laban.
His wages reduced ten times and worked as Servant to his in-laws.
But His glory was Restored when the Angel met him and ASKED HIM AGAIN AFTER TWENTY YEARS:
“WHAT IS YOUR NAME?”
This time around he was tired of wearing another man’s GARMENT. He pull it off himself and said:
“I AM JACOB!”
Then, the Spiritual atmosphere changed.
He got back his blessings which had been suspended for long.
His name was changed to ISRAEL.
Dearly Beloved Brother and Sister,
If you use another man’s Identity, you will carry another man’s Burden.
If you live another Person’s Life, you will Suffer another Man’s SUFFERINGS and carry another man’s DESTINY. But if you come to the Lord and Confess to your Actual Identity, you will pick up your Actual Blessings and Suspended Miracles again.
And It will be well with you.
