I’ve come across a certain type of man… The Entangler, if you’re not careful he will entangle you in the destructive affairs of his life: lies, deception and confusion. This is the man whose status is set to ‘otherwise engaged’ but he’s still looking for something! I call him The Entangler because his aim is to get you wrapped up in the web of his discontented life.
There are levels! You have to be careful because he may try to entangle you by association.
In one of my blogs I wrote about the Jezebel Spirit – well this is the male counter-part – the entangler. The lips of the adulterous man drips honey! (Proverbs – I changed woman to man!)
Imagine a man enquiring as to whether a woman is interested in him when his status is set to engaged or married. Some might ask; why are you enquiring as to whether someone is interested in you if your status is set to otherwise engaged?
Because…the lips of an adulterous man drips honey… many people rush into marriage without the understanding that Jesus set the bar high! Matthew 5:28 says that if a man looks at a woman with lustful intent then he has already committed adultery in his heart. Jesus wasn’t saying that it is the same act; He was saying that it is the same root! It’s a sin that originates in the heart. We can’t control what goes on in someone else’s heart – but we have to be careful of the entangler.
So … I’ve come across a certain type of man. He may just look like a regular guy; they come in all shapes and disguises. A wise man once told me – not everyone that says “God, God, is sent by God!” That’s one of the entanglers favourite disguises; the God-fearing family man.
So I’ve come across a certain type of man, he’s an entangler and he wants to get people entangled in his web of discontented confusion… I often wonder what goes through certain men’s mind.
“Noone engaged in warfare entangles himself in the affairs of this life that he may please him who enlisted him as a soldier” 2 Timothy 2:4 #Jesussetthebarhigh #thentangler
Who is this man? Some might ask; why is he enquiring as to whether someone is interested in him when his status is set to otherwise engaged? Because he’s entangled in the affairs of this life. We need soldiers not entanglers!
The verb ‘entangle’ means to catch, to trap and to ensnare; it is the antonym of freedom. This means that the aim of the entangler is to take away your freedom. Freedom is a gift from God.

The entangler targets a particular type of woman; well at least that’s how he perceives you to be. The entangler has an agenda, he cannot think straight because he is driven by lust and a desire to fill the void that is missing in his life: #themissinggap #praywithoutceasing. The entangler craves female attention and will go to great lengths to obtain it. His usual victims are desperate and insecure women. By victim I mean those who fall into the trap. Sometimes God uses people to expose things – is He going to send angels?
This is why you need to clothe yourself with strength like the bible says in Proverbs 31
“Strength and honour are her clothing; she shall rejoice in time to come.” – Proverbs 31:25
How do you identify the entangler?
- Fidgety character
- Status is set to otherwise engaged
- Wandering eyes
- Could be religious
- Pray and God will show you!
The most important thing to do is to pray because God is faithful – a lesson I have learnt through the years of my salvation. Things are not always what they seem so pray about everyone you meet …God is just and faithful to expose things and guide you in the way in which you should go.

Integrity where you at? Faithfulness where you at?
Ladies – God forbid that you end up with this type of man:
“Trust in the Lord, and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on his faithfulness. Delight yourself also in the Lord and He shall give you the desires of your heart!” Psalms 37:3
