Social media and sms blessings-Share or else!

My name is GOD, you hardly have time for me. I love You and always bless you. I am always with You. I need you to spend 30 mins of time with me today- Don't pray, just praise. Today I want this message across the world before midnight, will you help? Please do not cut it and I'll help you with something that you are in need of. Just dare me (1 thing). A blessing is coming your way. If you believe in GOD send this message on, please don't ignore it, GOD is going to fix two things (BIG) tonight in your favour. If you believe in God , DROP EVERYTHING & PASS IT ON. TOMORROW WILL BE THE BEST DAY OF YOUR LIFE. DON'T BREAK THIS CHAIN!
When I got this broadcast, I had to ask my friend if God actually typed the message and broadcast it Himself. I asked him if God really told him I hardly had time for Him. I asked myself, "so if I do not rebroadcast this message, does it mean I don't believe in God?" (Of course the answer is NO!) I had to tell him God blesses those He chooses to bless not because of some 5-second rebroadcast. The sad part of it is that most who rebroadcast these kind of messages do it out of fear. 'I don't know what will happen if I don't share it' 'let me share it so something bad will not happen to me' 'I have been praying for...let me do it, maybe God will give it to me this time'
Ask some people who shared this, if they actually woke up by 12am to praise God for 30mins. Some who even share messages like this do not practise true christianity in all areas of their lives. The most annoying part is the threat. DON'T BREAK THE CHAIN!
Am I supposed to tremble and share it? If I did, I should ask myself, 'where is my faith?'
God's blessings have no formula or manual. It is not automated that when you do this, you get that. God looks at His people and has mercy on them. He is a wise God whose ways we cannot understand and whose ways are not our ways. He is pleased with your faith in Him not your fear. He wants you to act because you believe not because of what you fear might happen if you do not act.
PASTOR A******
Many years ago, while I was still struggling to pay my school fees, an old man met me and said: “One day, you will travel abroad as often as a woman goes to the market”. I looked at him and received it. “Yes sir, thank you”. Although it appeared too incredible to me then but today, I spend more time abroad than I do in Nigeria. I prophesy into your life that every good prophesy concerning your life will come to pass, no matter how incredible they are. For those who share this post on their wall may they have good testimony this month.
For the hands that will share this on their wall May Your year be full of positive testimony. May your hands be filled with anointing. Success will be your middle name...ĠÕÕD ♍ÕЯΠĬΠĠ   FRNDS & A NICE DAY AHEAD({})
When I got this one, I smiled and said to myself, "if wishes were horses..." So just by putting this message on my wall-Facebook book wall I guess, my hands would be filled with anointing. Then I asked myself if it was really Pastor A****** that wrote it.
What is the message behind the message being shared? Still trying to figure it out...what a way to attain testimonies, success and anointing!
...It will take you less than 2 minutes to pass it on. If you are not interested, or do not have the 2 Minutes it will take to do this, please don't complain when God does not have time for you, because He is far busier than we are. Remember, Jesus said 'Deny Me on earth and I'll deny you before my Father. SHARE PLEASE! God bless U̶̲̥̅̊
I cut the first part of the message because I don't want to share it. Sharing it to me is making the bad news more known and spreading it faster; because I didn't know about it, till my friend sent it to me and I still wish he didn't. What I even want to talk about is the threat part of the message. I queried my friend if he was the one who added that part to it and I guess he was because of how defensive he was. The annoying thing was he didn't have enough facts to back up his claim. He said a friend told him blah blah blah. He couldn't give me the answers I wanted because I am not the type to share news I have no facts about. I also had to explain to him that he could only do his best as a christian according to his limited wisdom but he was in no place to dictate consequences. I advised him to leave that to God. 

My take: Before you share messages like above or any other via any form of media, Facebook, Twitter, BBM, sms etc, scrutinise it first so you don't pass the wrong message. You are not a robot to just share because someone says you should. Whatever message you share tells a little or much about you. It is pathetic when a smart person shares a dumb message.
 
You are entitled to your own opinion. 
If you do not believe in the message sent to you, do not pass it on. 
If you do not understand it, do not pass it on. 
If you cannot defend it, do not pass it on. 
If you are not comfortable with it, why pass it on?
Question the sender if you want to (and you will be shocked at the replies they would give you) or just ignore it.
