You are a pastor but you teach ‘leadership,’ ‘success,’ ‘entrepreneurship,’ ‘financial intelligence,’ to sinners every Sunday.
You and your followers are lost.
Sinners know how to make money. Who they need is Jesus Christ.
Preach Christ. Continue reading
Bartimaeus was blind. He heard that Jesus was passing by and he cried out to him: “Jesus, son of David, have mercy on me.” Read the story in Mark 10:46-52. Instead of helping him, the crowd who followed Jesus told him to keep quiet. They couldn’t help him, but they told him to be quiet.
A blind man needed help, instead of helping him, they wanted him to be silent, to remain where he had always been and continue to do what he had always done: beg them for help, be at their mercy, be their slave. Human nature is essentially evil. People are wicked in such a way you will never imagine.
You may not believe this but majority of people who know you do not want you to rise in life. They want you to keep asking them for help, to beg them for opportunity, to be at their mercy, so that they can continue to rule over you and make you their slave.
Bartimaeus called out to Jesus for help. They told him to shut up. People are wicked.
It is like Jeff Bezos is in town and asked to meet entrepreneurs. People who could help you be at that event refuse to help you gain access because they want to keep you poor.
People knew that the moment they helped Bartimaeus, they would lose control over him, he would no longer be their slave, so they told him to shut up and remain where he was: a beggar living in abject poverty. Few people really want to help you rise in life.
But Bartimaeus kept crying out to Jesus. He didn’t cry out to any man. He cried out to Jesus, who heard him and helped him. This is what the Lord wants you to know in this season. Do not cry out to man for help, rather cry out to Jesus and he will send you the help you need. Continue reading

Letter To A Dear Sister in Christ.
I trust all is well with you.
The days we live in are very dark and evil. Some of us have been called to stand against great evil and wickedness within and outside the church. Many of us will die for this cause and I am prepared for just that.
The things I say are mostly about life and death because the souls of millions of believers are in the hands of deceivers who have crept into the Church.
You may find my language confrontational, this is very intentional. I want to be very clear on which side of the fence I stand. My enemies know who I am, what I stand for and that I will not be bought or compromised. It is going to be a very long, difficult journey, and I pray that the Lord grants us the grace to finish our course with joy. Continue reading
Hello everyone, I would like to share something the Lord laid on my heart.
David was a shepherd boy who confronted and killed Goliath. King Saul adopted him and brought him into the palace to work with his soldiers. Saul witnessed the slaying of Goliath. He saw the incredible skill-sets David deployed to annihilate the enemy of Israel. He saw how through David’s act of bravery Israel won the battle and their enemies fled in terror. He saw the potential for greatness in David. From what the women sang after the battle he knew that David was made for great things in Israel.
Saul gave David a high position in his army. Made him the head of a unit, even gave him his daughter to marry, but Saul had no plans of ever allowing David become all he was capable of becoming. As long as David remained small, as long as he remained a servant working for Saul, as long as his dream did not clash with the kingly ambitions of Saul, he was welcome in the palace.
God’s plan for David was to become king, not to be a servant in Saul’s palace. David could never become a king as long as he remained in Saul’s palace. David had to leave Saul before he became all that God planned for him to be.
Saul became the albatross in David’s way. He became the one who blocked David from his greatness. Saul had become the enemy and if David wanted anything meaningful to happen in his life, if he wanted God’s will to be done in his life, if he wanted to see his dream become a reality, David had to leave Saul’s palace.
Saul’s palace represented success for David. He was a shepherd boy who was promoted to rub shoulders with the rich and powerful in the palace and could have started thinking that this was the ultimate for him. He had access to powerful people in the country, however if he wanted to fulfill destiny he had to leave Saul because Saul would never allow him become a king.
Who is the Saul in your life? Saul would never let you rise. He will never let you shine. He will reserve certain opportunities for himself alone and let you eat the crumbs of success which fall off his table. Saul will never allow you be the best you are capable of becoming. Saul would make sure you never become anything of value on this earth. As long as you remain with Saul you will remain an underdog, a servant, a slave. Continue reading
When God lays it on your heart or tells you: “Call Raymond,” “Call Sally,” “Call Andre,” “Call Felicia,” he wants you to pick up your phone, he wants you to drop whatever you are doing, he wants you to forget everything else, he wants you to pay total attention and call that person.
Someone may be saying, “Praise, I got it. So, God wants me to call Andre. I will do it when I am ready.” No. He doesn’t want you to call that person later. He doesn’t want you to do it after the day’s work. He doesn’t want you to do it last thing before you go to bed at night. He doesn’t want you to do it when you resume at work tomorrow morning. No. He wants you to do it now.
When we delay, we miss opportunities. When we delay, we miss out on our breakthroughs. Many of us have delayed making important calls only to discover days later that if we had made that call immediately it crossed our minds, we would have struck an opportunity. If we had put down what we were doing and spent just five minutes to make that call we would have been recipients of a blessing. Continue reading
