Demas Has Forsaken Me

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

Love is Everything.

Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be restrained; where there is knowledge, it will be dismissed. 1Corinthians 13:8.

Love is more important than speaking in tongues.
Love is more important than powerful prophetic gifts.
Love is more important than deep revelations.
Love is more important than giving to the poor and the church.

We have all been deceived to think there are matters more important than walking in love.
There are none.
Nothing else matters.
Love is everything. Continue reading

The Dangerous Pursuit Of Happiness.

The Dangerous Pursuit of Happiness.


Hello everyone,


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

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

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
