The Tragedy of Ignorance

One saddest things to experience is seeing a chicken trapped in a hole. If the hen knew its children (chickens) would die in the hole, it would not enter it. If the hen knows its offspring cannot escape the gutter, it will not jump into it.

The chickens enter the hole because of food. Out of ignorance and innocence, the chickens follow their mother (the hen) into the hole for food. In the same way, most people who drink and smoke do not know the risk of alcohol, cigarette, and marijuana.

If people knew that hard drugs such as marijuana, cocaine, and alcohol would destroy their lives, they would not take them in the first place. Such is life. People destroy themselves out of ignorance.


The reward of Ignorance

If you know the danger of sin, you will not indulge in it. For example, sexual immorality has physical, spiritual, health, and psychological risks. You might think you are having fun. However, you are putting yourself in danger.

Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS), Syphilis, Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Human Papilloma Virus, Abortion (the spirit of murder), Premature Parenting, the spirit of rejection, suicide, hatred, and shame, Human Immune Virus, Genital Herpes, evil spirits, and numerous bacteria, viruses, and protozoa’s will send you a friend request after the act.

For more profound revelations, download and read my books on sex, purity, and immorality. The policeman, politician, manager, and leader taking bribes in his workplace does not know the consequences of his actions.

He does not know that those monies are cursed. He does not know that money carries a spiritual force (meditate on Luke 16:13). For example, a man praying against another man he does not know has no knowledge that he is fighting God, himself and his lineage. It might have been that the praying man heard some rumours about the man he is praying against.

Without a thorough investigation, the praying man begins unleashing curses on the man he does not know. The praying man releasing the curses does not know that he curses himself and his loved ones when he curses the man he does not know (meditate on Genesis 12:1-3, Isaiah 41:12; 49:25).

Such is life. You don’t attack someone you don’t know. Politicians, contractors, and managers using public funds that were supposed to build ultra-modern roads, hospitals, and developmental projects do not know that the people suffering and the vessels that die on the bad roads are calling for revenge in the spiritual realm (meditate on Genesis 4:10).

The funds were supposed to be used to build ultra-modern hospitals, schools, churches, and businesses. However, diverted and pocketed by the politicians and leaders in charge will pay for souls that died without proper medical care, housing, education, and poor health facilities (meditate on Galatians 6:7). Are you embezzling the public and church’s funds? Repent for a turnaround!


The seed of ignorance and sin

Numerous people live in abject poverty because of the greediness (ignorance) of the leaders. These corrupt leaders do not know that they are bringing curses on their selves, their communities, and their lineages.

Sin is like darkness. It makes the road gloomy and dangerous. Sin paves the way for evil spirits to dominate an environment. It opens the portal for evil spirits to create a demonic stronghold in your soul.

Sin is like a rag. It covers your eye and minds not to see the dangers. Sin blinds your eyes and minds to understanding, revelation, and power. It empowers demons to hover around your environment.

Sin charges evil spirits. Sin magnetizes evil spiritual forces, animals, and corrupt people to you. Sin authorizes evil forces without your permission. Sin makes you think like the devil. It weakens the voice of the Holy Spirit.

Sin hardens the heart and makes you not think uprightly. Freely download my book on my blog, spiritual keys for life, for more profound revelations of sin. One reason the god of this world has blinded the unbelievers and ignorant Christians is sin (see 2 Corinthians 4:4).

You will not envy sinners if the Holy Spirit reveals their spiritual state. In the realms of the Spirit, sinners live in darkness. They live in prisons. Some wear rags, while some live in depression and fear.

The unbelievers are chained in dungeons in the spiritual realm. I write from the revelations and visions the Holy Spirit has revealed to me. If you know the power of sin, you will not engage it. In the book of Luke, Christ Jesus made a profound statement about evil (ignorance).


The words of Christ Jesus

And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand, and the other on the left.

Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.

Luke 23:33-34 KJV

Christ Jesus pleaded for the Romans and criminals because they were ignorant of their actions. Christ Jesus said, “Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.” If the Romans knew what they were doing, they would not have done it in the first place.

If the Romans and wicked religious leaders knew who Christ Jesus was, they would not have crucified Him. However, it was prophesied that Christ Jesus would die. It was not in the plan of God that he would use people to abuse Christ Jesus.

The state of humankind’s heart authorized them to exert wickedness against Christ Jesus. Some people will insult, mock, reject, speak evil, oppose, hate, and do anything to destroy you because of their hardened hearts and ignorance.

The world will reject you because of Christ Jesus (see John 7:7; 15:18). It’s part of life. If the abusers know what they are doing, they will not do it in the first place. If the people mistreating you know the consequences of their actions, they will not do it.


The wise man and the seed

Like a seed in the soil, you might think it is useless. However, a time will come the seed will germinate with many fruits. That’s how life works. People might not see your relevance because you are a seed in the soil.

It takes wise and spiritual people to see your value. Ignorant people might pull out the seed because they see nothing good about it. However, a wise and spiritual person knows the potential of the seed.


The works of the enemy

Let’s take Joseph as an example. His brothers hated him to the extent of selling him as an enslaved person. Joseph’s brothers thought they were destroying an honorable man, not knowing they were promoting him.

Sometimes, God allows certain enemies to take advantage of you because he is taking you somewhere. If Satan knew the death and resurrection of Christ Jesus would end sin and deception, he would not have influenced Judas Iscariot and the ignorant religious people to crucify Christ Jesus (see 1 Corinthians 2:8).

The fact that people are destroying your reputation does not mean God has forgotten you. God has a great future for you. The princes and presidents in Persia thought they were destroying Daniel, not knowing they were paving the way for the true God to shine in Persia. I recommend reading my article on how God uses your enemies to help you for more profound revelations.


The reward of patience

There is a reason for your hatred. God will not allow you to pass through a trial (test) you cannot win. He knows your strength. God allowed the devil to fight Job because He knew Job’s strength (faith).

If you read the book of Job in the Holy Bible, you will realize that the devil sought permission from God before attacking Job. This should tell you that the devil cannot attack you without the permission of God.

God has set a line for your enemies. Your enemies cannot cross certain barriers. If your enemies knew the consequence of their actions, they would not attack. The people who desired Daniel’s death died instead.

Suppose the princes and presidents of Persia knew plotting against Daniel would lead to their premature death. In that case, they would not have tried Daniel. Suppose Haman knew his wickedness against Hadassah, Mordecai, and the Jews would have led to his premature death.

In that case, Haman would not have planned the death of the Jews, Mordecai and Hadassah. Joseph became a leader in Egypt. His opposing brothers received liberty at the feet of Joseph. If your enemies knew your future and the consequence of their wickedness, they would not have attacked in the first place.Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.”


The evidence of ignorance

Ignorance can make countries, cities, villages, and people struggle. People destroy water bodies and trees out of ignorance. These people do not know that the earth, water, trees, and animals play an important role on earth.

Suppose people know that the water bodies can hear and act. In that case, they will not destroy them with illegal mining activities. If people knew that the earth has a body (ears, mouth, eyes, hands, legs) and that they can react, they would not destroy the land.

Suppose people knew that trees and animals could hear and react. In that case, they will not abuse them. Several companies have become bankrupt because of illegal mining, bribery, and wickedness. Nature (the earth, air, water, trees, and animals) are against the people and businesses in the wicked community.


My visit to Akwatia

I remember visiting Akwatia (the eastern region of Ghana) for evangelism. Akwatia was one of the best places you could find diamonds. I lived in that place since childhood. I left that place when I was around twelve years old.

Today, the diamond mining company in Akwatia has become bankrupt because of illegal mining and the wickedness (corruption) of the workers and citizens. Nature is against the people of Akwatia. The devil has invaded the camp of Akwatia because of iniquity.

The camp of Akwatia has become gloomy because they abuse nature. Towns and villages that mine gold and natural resources are becoming dark and poor because the people in that place abuse nature and work wickedness.

The water bodies, trees, and earth fights evil people. People are constantly facing poverty because they abuse nature. Leaders in those communities have no respect for nature. Because of this wicked act, evil dominates the land (Kindly check out my book, the mysteries of evil seeds, for more profound revelations).


The necessity of repentance

Until we repent (change our mindset), respect nature, and walk in the path of the Word (the Holy Bible), we will continue to live in poverty. We will face the wrath of the earth, trees, water bodies, and animals if we continue to abuse them.

However, if we preserve, protect, and build nature (water bodies, trees, animals, air, and land), they will prosper us. The wind, earth, trees, water, and animals can oppose or promote a country, community, and business. If we don’t apply wisdom and work in the ways of God, we will continue to walk in darkness.

Analyze advanced countries. You will realize that they respect nature. Ignorance is a disaster. It can make you kill your deliverer. The Jews and ignorant religious people who demanded Christ Jesus's death did not know the consequences. Let’s read from the Word.


The consequences of ignorance

Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ? They all say unto him, Let him be crucified.

And the governor said, Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out the more, saying, Let him be crucified.

When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it.

Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children.

Matthew 27:22-25 KJV

Pilate observed that Christ Jesus was innocent. However, the people demanded Christ Jesus’ death. Pilate did not want to crucify Christ Jesus because he knew Christ Jesus was holy. However, the people insisted that Christ Jesus died.


Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children.

Matthew 27:25 KJV

If you read the above Holy Scriptures, you will observe that the people made a profound statement. The Jews and wicked vessels said, His blood be on us and on our children The people cursed themselves and their children.

History has a lot to say about the Jews. The Jews who declared that the blood of Christ Jesus be on them and their children suffered under wicked leaders. For example, Adolf Hitler killed millions of Jews.

If you check the history of the Jews, you will realize that thousands died through war and assassination. One reason for their death was because of their wickedness (see Matthew 27:25). Some people might think they are destroying, not knowing they are bringing a curse on their selves and their families.

Some children suffer due to their parent's or great-grandfather’s wickedness. This is one reason; you must confess the sins of your fathers. If possible, trace the sin to Adam and Eve because your great-grandfathers might be the reason for your suffering.

As Christ Jesus said, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.” Sometimes you have to pray for some enemies because they don’t know what they are doing. Sometimes you have to pray for some leaders because they don’t know what they are doing.

If they knew their wickedness and decisions would bring calamity to their lives, lineage, and country, they would not have done it in the first place. Are you working wickedly? Repent for a turnaround!


The Word reveals the cause.

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge…

Hosea 4:6

I hope you got the revelation. Ignorance is a destroyer. In the law court, ignorance is not an excuse. Entering the lion’s den can lead to death. It doesn’t matter your innocence. You will only come out of the lion’s den alive if it shows mercy.

Don’t allow ignorance to dominate because we progress with wisdom. Knowledge can deliver you from calamities. You cannot sit idle and expect God to supply your needs and wants. God would not give you two legs, hands, eyes, and a brain if that were the case. He expects you to use your mind.


They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof.

Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices.

For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them.

Proverbs 1:30-32 KJV

If you don’t want to perish, do not despise or reject knowledge. As stated in the Holy Scriptures, wealth can destroy fools. Fools, in the context of the Holy Scriptures, are the ignorant. Give an ignorant person thousands, millions, and trillions of assets. He will waste them.

Do you want to know why? Because he doesn’t have the knowledge, skills, and understanding to manage and multiply them. The devil will not spare you if you cross his line. You cannot attract the help of God if you don’t know his Word.

You cannot receive the support of people if you don’t have value (skills, wisdom, and resources). If you want to escape calamities, be knowledgeable. Do not remain in the room of Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.”
