Job 38:17(KJV); Have the gates of death been opened unto thee? or hast thou seen the doors of the shadow of death?
There are people who are gates of death or doors to the shadow of death. This is because of the spirit that is usually at work in such individuals.
One such spirit every wise man needs to steer clear of is the spirit of the strange woman. In proverbs 5:5, the Bible says Her feet go down to death; her steps take hold on hell.
The strange woman is more than that woman whom a man seeks outside his marital bed. This spirit can work even in men( like the Jezebel spirit works in both men and women).
One critical thing about the spirit of a strange woman is what the Bible reveals in Proverbs 2:16-17. It reveals that she forgets the covenant of her God! This means that a strange woman can even be a believer but she or he dishonours, abuses and disregards this covenant.
There are Christians who require very little motivation to denounce the faith. There are people who don’t need so much to compromise Christian virtues. There are people who can trade a clean conscience before God so easily. They are strange.
The Bible says they are doors that lead to death. For Solomon, they corrupted his wisdom and tainted his legacy. Strange men and women in pastoral positions have destroyed entire ministries.
It is prudent to recognise strangeness. Keep from this door, child of wisdom.

The strange woman forgets the covenant of her God. It is prudent to recognise strangeness. Keep from this door, child of wisdom.
PRAYER: Father, I thank you for this day. Thank you for this wisdom that preserves and keeps me. I have the judgment that discerns strangeness and the understanding to know what to do. This knowledge keeps my ministry; my business; my marriage; my career and all my dealings. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
