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

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

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

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.

Dear Minister,

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.

How To Kill Your Ministry.

How To Kill Your Ministry. 

Are you called and gifted to operate in the prophetic, intercessory ministries? One sure way to kill your gifting and ministry is to sit down under a pastor who teaches ‘leadership’, success and motivational messages. A pastor who focuses on the acquisition of money and material things and not on pressing into the things of the kingdom. A pastor who has relegated prayer as unimportant in the equation of true kingdom success. Continue reading

Dear Minister, Do Not Counsel A Woman Alone.

1. Dear minister,
Do not counsel a lady alone.

No matter how spiritual you are: you see visions, see angels, even know the future, you are still very human.

Many giants have fallen.

A lady in distress is vulnerable and sexual chemistry is volatile.

Do not rationalize.
Run. Continue reading

Why David Had To Leave Saul.

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
