We Cannot Make This Journey Alone.

We cannot make this journey on our own. As much as we would like to think that we can make it on our own we should realise that Christ never intended for any of us to go on this journey on our own. He had twelve disciples for a reason: mutual support and encouragement.

Some people with strong ‘Type A’ personalities, like me, sometimes think we are strong enough, wise enough, prayerful enough, spiritual enough, brilliant enough, well connected to the Holy Spirit enough, know the word enough, are experienced enough, rich enough, even educated enough to make it on our own, by ourselves, without any input from other members of the body of Christ, but that is pride, self deception and it eventually leads to disaster.

The Psychology Of Deception.

The psychology of deception.

This is how it works.
Tell a lie. Make sure it is a big lie, so big that it could probably be the truth. Begin to look for scriptures to back up your lies. Twist, misinterpret and pervert the scriptures to support your lie. Build a doctrine around this lie to help you propagate your agenda which is to manipulate and dispossess your followers of their money.

Now line up testimonies of people who believed in this lie and made money, who became millionaires. Keep bringing out such people on your pulpit to re-enforce your lie. Make sure that those giving such testimonies are professional, hard working business people who have invested themselves in their work and are reaping the rewards of their years of diligence.

3 Deadly Sins.

There are 3 things you must deal with if you want to be successful in your walk with the Lord.

1. Arrogance. Thinking you are a god that should be worshipped.

2. Lust for money or greed. Bowing down to mammon.

3. Sexual promiscuity.

If you fix these, you’ll be fine.

William B. had a strong prophetic gift. He operated in signs and wonders.
After a while, the gift got to his head and he thought he didn’t need the bible.
Kenneth Hagin warned him but he was arrogant.
Months after that warning he was killed in an accident.

There are men and women who destroyed themselves because of greed. Continue reading

The Danger Of False Hope.

The greatest weapon in the hands of charlatans is false hope built on lies and deception.
False hope is like a drug, very addictive, deadlier than heroin, more dangerous than cocaine. When a charlatan injects false hope into a gullible person, it takes control of the mind, the emotions and soul.
False hope will make a person believe absolutely anything a pastor says without checking it up in the scriptures.
False hope has made people sell their houses, lands, cars and stocks to give to a con man wearing a religious disguise who has promised them financial miracles. Continue reading

2. Separation to the calling.
3. Preparation for the calling.
4. Pursuit of the calling.

Follow the process. Continue reading

Why Are Some Pastors So WICKED?

Some of the meanest, wicked, most heartless people I have met in my over five decades on this planet have been pastors and ministers of the gospel.

Before you start cursing me, let me finish.
Read Ezekiel 8:5-18, where Ezeliel found great wickedness and sin inside the temple being practiced by the elders of Israel.


Let me tell you a SAD story.
Several years ago, a friend of mine worked with a mega pastor in Lagos for about five years. When he was about to leave, the mega pastor took back his car, ejected him from his apartment with EXTREME PREJUDICE! It was like they were ENEMIES.

The mega pastor lived like an emperor in the best part of town, he owned many luxury cars, had several real estate investments in the city, but he could not allow this young pastor to exit the ministry and start his own ministry in peace.

I have seen some pastors come on the pulpit and lay curses on their associates who wanted to start their own ministry. They would say all kinds of malicious things against them just because they decided to take their destiny into their own hands and step out in faith.

All these pastors who are very good at laying curses also left some other ministries and started their own, why should it be different fot the people who served with them? why should they make life difficult for people who have invested a large portion of their lives growing their ministries?

Why is the heart of man so full of wickedness?
Why can’t you wish another person well and pray for them to rise and fulfill their calling, assignment and purpose?
Why do you lay curses on men and women who served you faithfully for many years?

This is NOT the nature and character of Christ. Continue reading

What Matters Is Faithfulness.

Dear minister,

Do not measure the success of your life by how many houses, cars, you have or by how much money you possess. You may have a lot of money but be totally lost. Having lots of money and material things is not a sign of spirituality or your intimacy with the Lord. Read Revelations 3:17.
Sinners who hate God are rich.
Never measure the value of your contribution by the testimonies of people you have ministered to. Testimonies are good, however they are not a true measurement of your success in ministry.

Have you been faithful to your calling and your assignment? Have you followed the Lord on his instructions to you regarding your assignment?
The Lord rewards our faithfulness and our obedience, not our ability to accumulate material things like the heathen who do not know God. Continue reading

TEKEL: Weighed in the balance and found wanting.

TEKEL: Weighed in the balance and found wanting.


In the book of Daniel 5, while king Belteshazzar was drinking with his wives and concubines, desecrating holy vessels dedicated to the Lord, he saw a hand appear and write some words on the wall: MENE MENE TEKEL UPHARSIN.

Nobody could give an interpretation of these words, but the queen told the king about Daniel and he was brought before the king. The queen said there was a spirit of excellence in Daniel which made him understand and give solutions to complex, knotty, confusing, difficult issues.

Daniel interpreted the words to the king. What caught my attention is the second word: TEKEL. It means ‘you have been weighed in the balance and found wanting.’ Because Belteshazzar was found wanting, his kingdom was taken away from him and given to another.

This text got me thinking about our relationship with the Lord. Continue reading

Money Reveals People.

Money Reveals People.


Many of you think you have good friends. In fact you resent the very thought that I dare question the loyalty of your friends. You think your friends will do anything for you if you are in a desperate situation. You think your friends will support you no matter what. You think your friends are loyal to you and nothing can shake your friendship.
But you may be wrong.

You have no idea who your friends are until they have money.
You have no idea what they are capable of doing until they have money.
You have no idea if they can be trusted until money is introduced into the equation of your friendship.
You have no idea what resides in the heart of your friends until they have money. Continue reading

Ministering Christ In Power.

 

Hello everyone, I want to share with you this message on my heart from Acts 8.

 

Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria and PREACHED CHRIST to them.(emphasis mine.) And the people gave heed to the things which Philip spake, hearing and seeing the miracles which he did. And there was great joy in that city. Acts 8:5-8
It is interesting to note that Philip offered them Christ, not his eloquence, oratorical skills or charisma. And the Word was confirmed with Signs and Wonders.

In verse 7, you will notice that there was a great manifestation of the supernatural-there were deliverances from demonic oppression and healings because he preached CHRIST to them.

It is sad to note that Gospel ministers have become ‘success coaches’, ‘motivational speakers’ and corporate coaches and have stopped preaching Christ on the pulpit. Men and women of God stand before you on Sunday morning and ‘talk’ motivation to a people hungry for the supernatural power of God. There’s something very wrong with this picture. Continue reading
