- 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

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

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.
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
Let people pay their TITHES in peace.
Let them sow their seeds in peace.
Let them give towards the gospel in peace.
Let them give from a willing heart in peace.
It is NOT your money.
You did not work for it.
You did not give them the money.
Their tithing is none of your business.
Why do you have sleepless nights about what people choose to do with their money? Continue reading
Strangers Are The Key To Your Success.
I am excited to share this with you.
This could change your life.
One of the greatest lessons you will learn in life is that your success lies not in the hands of people you know or you are familiar with, but it lies in the hands of complete strangers.
Your money is hidden not in the pockets of your friends but in the pockets of strangers.
Your customers and clients are going to be strangers.
Your helpers, people who will help you manifest your dream, are not going to be people you know but they are going to be strangers.
Therefore, if you want to make progress you must learn to approach strangers and ask them for what you want. Continue reading
Why are people poor?
1. They want something for nothing.
They want to be rich without work.
They gamble, engage in betting because they believe in luck.
They hope to hit a jackpot someday.
But hope without clarity and strategic action compounds their cycle of poverty. Continue reading
You are a pastor but you teach ‘leadership,’ ‘success,’ ‘entrepreneurship,’ ‘financial intelligence,’ to sinners every Sunday.
You and your followers are lost.
Sinners know how to make money. Who they need is Jesus Christ.
Preach Christ. Continue reading
1. Years ago, I met a millionaire. He taught me 3 lessons.
1. Never ask your friends for financial help. They will look down on you.
2. No matter how bad things are, always look good. Do not let anyone see you sweat.
3. Do not spread your problems around. People will avoid you.
2. When you are a millionaire and start asking other millionaires for help, that means you have fallen. They will never send opportunity your way because you have become a financial risk.
Ask for advice.
Don’t ask for money.
Your dignity and respect are intact.
3. I watched this on 700club.
A millionaire fell into financial difficulty. He didn’t ask anybody for help. He didn’t declare bankruptcy to protect his personal assets.
He started SELLING his property to pay back debts.
Don’t beg for money.
Ask for advice.
Friends will respect you.
4. You guys are under the dangerous assumption that all your friends want you to be successful. Some are envious of your success.
It was Joseph’s brothers who wanted to destroy him. Friends could have done worse.
Maintain your dignity, self respect and honour.
Don’t ask for money.
5. Your friends don’t owe you money.
You cannot use friendship to compel or manipulate them to give you money.
Money is NOT a reward for friendship.
Money is a reward for value.
6. Called a friend who has connections on 3 continents. Big guy. I asked him how I can add value to his organisation. Shared some ideas with him. He was excited about the possibilities.
Do I need more money?
Never asked for $1.
Friendship, respect, honour intact.
