As a child, I enjoyed reading books and watching movies about Pinnochio. However, as a Spirit led adult, I now see Prophetic implication of this story, as it relates to people in general today. You know the story. Pinnochio’s nose began to grow, as a result of his lying. But there’s another observation I’d like to share, as many individuals today are stuck in relationships, with “puppet masters” that’s taking away/limiting their personal freedoms and control of their life, as well as, stunting their growth, happiness, potential, income, etc.
According to Wikipedia, a puppet is an inanimate (lifeless, nonliving) object or cool figure animated or manipulated by a puppeteer (puppet master). A puppeteer (puppet master) is a person who manipulates an inanimate object, such as a puppet, in real time to create the illusion of life. The puppeteer may be visible to or hidden from the audience. A puppeteer can operate a puppet indirectly by the use of strings, rods, wires, electronics or directly by his or her own hands placed inside the puppet or holding it externally.
Wow! There’s so much revelation in these definitions. I’ll do my best to deal with the ones God’s given me to share. First off, if there’s a puppet “master,” then there must be a “slave.” The Puppet is the slave. God should be our puppet master. But in most cases, He’s not because we’ve made “others” the puppet master. Many people are so consumed with their earthly puppet masters, until they can’t hear God say, “Cut the strings!” An earthly puppet master will have you looking like this photo: A clown.
Puppets can’t choose their own wardrobe. Puppets can’t move on their own. Puppets can only speak the words the puppet master speaks for them. And finally, Puppets display fake smiles.
This takes me to my second observation: Being controlled by a puppet master turns an individual into a lifeless, nonliving, and boring human being. In fact, puppets spend most of his/her time/life doing what makes the puppet master gainful and happy.
And finally, my third observation is: Puppet masters are manipulators. However, it is important to note that puppet masters can only manipulate lifeless and nonliving type of individuals. Puppet masters are master manipulators at creating “illusions” of life. In other words, the puppet master works to make the puppet believe he/she is living an “alive” life as a puppet, but in actuality, the puppet’s “ thriving” life, that God truly ordained, exist only when the puppet in no longer string controlled by the puppet master.
In closing, too many Believers are secretly unhappy, due to their puppet master relationships. If you’re a puppet of an earthly puppet master, I challenge you to cut the strings! Until you’re able to cut the strings, you’re limiting yourself to a life experience that’s below God’s standard of living for your preordained life on earth.
