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

God is not against you having money.
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.
The Holy Spirit Is Your Helper, Not Your Slave.
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.
Follow The Process.
The Holy Spirit said, “Set apart for Me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them. Acts 13:2.
4 steps to fulfil the calling.
1. Receive the calling.
2. Separation to the calling.
3. Preparation for the calling.
4. Pursuit of the calling.
Follow the process. Continue reading
Learn To Follow The Holy Spirit.
Learn To Follow The Holy Spirit.
Many years ago a man was about to get married but on the day of the traditional wedding, he refused to show up for the ceremony.
The bride’s family sent emissaries to him to beg him to show up because guests were already gathered at the venue. The man refused to leave his house. They sent more emissaries and at 5pm that day he turned up for the wedding.
The man did not want to go ahead with that wedding. That was the RESTRAINT of the Holy Spirit, holding him back, cautioning him, giving him a warning, but he listened to the voices of men rather than obey the voice of God.
That marriage was hell for that man. It was one problem after another. After a few years the woman divorced him. She never wanted a husband. All she wanted was children and as soon as she had her children she got rid of the man. He went through many challenges and died at the prime of his life.
This is a true life story. I know that man and I also know the lady involved. The woman was not evil or wicked. They were not just meant for each other. They were never meant to get married. They were never meant to be together. When you are with someone you are not meant to be with all you will see is their weaknesses and bad side. You will never see or enjoy anything good in them.

The Danger Of Procrastination.
Danger Of Procrastination.
A white American was called to preach the gospel in Africa at 18. He delayed because he said he was not married. When he got married, he said he wanted to have children so he procrastinated again. He was now in his 30’s, he delayed and said he needed money to preach the gospel. He spent the next 30 years building a big business. He was giving money to the gospel but God whispered to him that he had not obeyed his calling. It was in his 60’s that he came to Nigeria but by then he had zero energy to preach the gospel and the time he should have preached had long passed and gone.
He had money but had failed in his assignment. Continue reading

Trust In Divine Providence.
If the Lord called you into ministry, obey and follow his instructions. All your needs will be met. He can meet your needs through business, a job or use RAVENS as he did to Elijah.
If all the people in your city refuse to support you, the Lord will send help from elsewhere. The Lord will give you a money making idea to create value. God will always make a way for you.
Finding Your Helpers.
There are certain people assigned by God to our lives to help us function in and accomplish our assignments. They are helpers. We should pray that helpers find us, and we find them by an act of divine providence. Continue reading
