The Secret Things Are With The Lord.
The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but the things which are revealed and disclosed belong to us and to our children forever, so that we may do all of the words of this law.
There are dimensions of our lives, our future, our assignment and our destiny that are secrets, known only to and hidden with the Lord. There are great things we are capable of accomplishing, things we have never conceived in our minds but they are written in God’s books concerning us, for us to accomplish in our time here on earth.

- You have a calling as an evangelist, pastor, prophet, etc, but you see people making money, so you abandoned your calling to pursue money.
Don’t be an idiot.
You have a calling and grace that kings and queens envy.
Do not allow money derail your destiny.
Pursue your assignment.
When the rich have problems they know where to run. They are rich, but spiritual things cannot be bought, neither can they be sold. They are forced to find people who carry the grace to help them.
I have helped billionaires.
I know what I carry.
Know what you carry.
Never undermine yourself or your calling. Continue reading
Let The Lord Prove Himself.
Some years ago I was eating at a fast food restaurant in Lagos, Nigeria. A lady recognised me, came over and asked me to speak to her ‘fiance’ who was with her. She was about to get married to him and wanted to know what I thought about him.
I sat with the guy at his table and spoke with him about different things; his job, the church he attended, business, etc. As I was speaking to him about those things, I was listening to what the Lord had to tell me about him. When I was done talking with him, I told the lady: “this man doesn’t want to marry you.”
Lady: “how do you know? Did he tell you he didn’t want to marry me?”
Me: “No, he didn’t.”
Lady: “Then how do you know that he doesn’t want to marry me?”
Me: “The Holy Spirit revealed it to me.” Continue reading
The Recognition Of Your Dominant Gift.
Many years ago I read Dr Mike Murdock’s book: ‘The Law Of Recognition.’ That is one of the best books I have read in my life.
There’s a chapter on the Recognition of your dominant gift, where he explained that you may have many gifts and talents, but one gift or talent will stand out and tie all other gifts together to produce at their optimum capacity.
I started ministry as a singer. After three decades, I am still a good singer. The gift of singing opened doors for me to interact with many pastors, both good and bad. I learnt a lot from that experience and I have so many stories to tell. I will leave that for another post.
Well, after a while the Lord started stirring me to write books. I told a pastor I worked with at that time and he said I was not called to write books. Some people are just insane. How can you tell someone that he is not called to do something just because you want that person to continue to work for you? Well, I ignored that pastor and started writing books. I have written over 60 books. Continue reading
The Danger Of Covetousness.
“You shall not covet your neighbor’s house. You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his manservant or maidservant, or his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.” Exodus 20: 17.
In all my years as a believer I have not heard up to 3 preachers talk about the sin of covetousness. In fact, most preachers encourage, fuel and sponsor the sin of covetousness by telling us about their luxury houses, their bank accounts, their possessions. They fuel covetousness by staging testimonies of people who got financial breakthroughs by their sacrificial giving, thereby stirring a deep greed for money and material possessions in the heart of their congregation. Majority of testimonies birth greed in people, not faith or love for Yeshua. Continue reading
So that we are clear, I am not against the rich and the wealthy. Joseph of Arimathea was wealthy and was also a disciple of Yeshua.
God is not against you having money. Money is a reward for the creation and delivery of value. If you want money, create and deliver value.
But this what God is against.
God is against you perverting scriptures to make money,
God is against you collecting tithes to enrich yourself,
God is against you manipulating the poor to steal from their pockets,
Gos is against you merchandising the gospel to enrich yourself,
God is against you selling the gifts of the holy spirit,
God is against you selling healing, selling prayers, selling deliverance to enrich yourself,
God is against you placing a financial price on the gospel,
God is against using your office and position to steal from the poor,
God is against using the name of Christ to steal from the ignorant,
God is against you monetizing the gospel like a common criminal,
God is against you becoming a pathological liar because of money.
If you want to make money, don’t beg, don’t manipulate, don’t pervert scripture, don’t use the weapon of fear. Get a job. Do some business. Create and deliver value.
Brother Gbile and brother Zac Poonen have given testimonies how God provided for them supernaturally without asking or begging anyone, telling anyone their need, or manipulating anyone. They prayed and God sent people from hundreds of miles away to meet their needs. If God told you to focus on ministry, God will provide for you with dignity. You will never have to beg anyone for help. If you are begging, you should either get a job or do something else apart from ministry.
God does not put his servants to shame.
If you were given an instruction, God will honour his word in your life.
Trust God to open doors of divine providence for you, your family and your ministry.
May the Lord build his Church.
Many of you don’t understand spiritual responsibility. You act like children and expect to be spoonfed and led by the hand, but God is waiting on you to take responsibility for your life.
The Holy Spirit is your helper, not your slave.
You must take responsibility for your life. Waiting for the Holy Spirit to do something when you’ve already been given an instruction is juvenile. So many people BLAME the Holy Spirit for their failure to take action on their assignment.
“The Holy Spirit has not told me what to do.”
“The Holy Spirit has not shown me where to go.”
This is how many people justify their colossal failure in ministry, business, career and life.
When God gives you an assignment, it is your duty and responsibility to GET IT DONE! You cannot blame the Holy Spirit for not ‘telling you what to do.’ Go get it done!
Do you know that if you fail in your assignment God is not going to blame the Holy Spirit for ‘not helping you.’ You are responsible for your success and your failure.
Find the right platforms for your assignment to thrive.
Find the right people to help your assignment succeed.
Find the right environment for your assignment to thrive.
Take responsibility for your assignment, your calling, your ministry and your life.
For Demas, having loved this present world, has deserted me and gone to Thessalonica. 2Timothy 4:10.
Demas was a co-labourer with Paul the Apostle. Demas had been through a lot with Paul; he had gone on missionary journeys with him, seen the miracles and experienced the power of the gospel, yet he turned back.
Demas had had enough of Paul and his zeal for Christ. Demas wanted to enjoy his life here and now and wasn’t waiting for Christ to reward him for his commitment to the gospel.
Demas had hopes and dreams that were unmet, he wanted to be somebody in society, he wanted to be recognised and celebrated by his peers, he eanted to be rich, he wanted to own mansions in Ephesus, he wanted to be surrounded by the mist beautiful women from Corinth. Simply put, Demas wanted to enjoy his life now. Continue reading
The Dangerous Pursuit of Happiness.
We are told by society to pursue happiness, to do the things that make us happy, to walk away from relationships and people who do not make us happy. Success coaches keep telling us to ‘do what makes you happy,’ but in spite of all these people are still very unhappy. Many people have destroyed everything of value in their lives because they pursue happiness, not purpose.
In Mark 10, Jesus told a young man to give away his wealth and follow him. You would expect that the rich man would trust that Jesus knew what was best for him and that would make him obey the instructions of the master without second thought. But contrary to all expectations the man rejected the advice given by Jesus. He held onto his money and walked away in sadness.
He was sad not because Jesus was mean to him but because Jesus told him the truth. Jesus told him what was best for him, yet he was unhappy. He was sad because he had a skewed perception of reality. He was immature in his understanding of life and the things that are of value to the Lord and the kingdom. The fact that he was unhappy does not mean that Jesus was wrong. It meant that the rich man had zero understanding of spirituality.
Money is good but on a scale of value, the will of God, the plan of God for our life, the agenda of God are more important than money.
God’s will is more important than our short term happiness.
God is more interested in your growth, in the development of your character, than in your happiness. God doesn’t want you to be happy at all costs and by all means. No. God wants you to grow. Some of you are so immature that God cannot entrust you to handle anything of importance in the kingdom. If all you are interested in is yourself, and how rich you can become, how do you expect God to place the destiny of Nations and destiny of millions of people in your hands? Continue reading
