Don't Get Familiar

Gehazi was the assistant to Elisha one of the greatest prophets in the Bible. He saw God raise the dead through Elisha, he saw God do mighty miracles through Elisha but he was familiar with the anointing and instead of getting blessed, he got cursed. Absalom was the son of King David; the greatest King of Israel that ever lived but rather than see the greatness of his father, he saw his flaws and felt that he was better than him. He ended up dead instead of being king. Jesus the Savior of the World went to the neighborhood he grew up and they could not receive him because they saw the son of Joseph the carpenter instead of God in human flesh. Jesus could not do many miracles in his neighborhood even though he was very familiar with their problems. Beloved familiarity is a killer! Don't get familiar with grace, don't abuse access to greatness, it will cost you a lot of things. There are anointed men who got familiar with their mentor and they lost access. As a husband respect the anointing on your wife, as a wife respect the grace on your husband. Don't get familiar with greatness it will cost you more than you can imagine. May God give us wisdom in Jesus name. You too can be a social media evangelist, kindly share and repost this Gospel of Jesus Christ so that others can be blessed just like you have been blessed.

Testimony Thursday

After you become born again and you have embraced prayers, fasting and living a holy life, the most important thing you want to embrace after that is seed sowing. If you will do exploits as a Christian you must trust God and use your faith to sow financial seeds and trust God to multiply what you have sown. When Dr Mike Murdock came to COZA last year, he called for a seed of $10,000. He shared his testimony of how God began to give him favor with men of stature who took his ministry to another level and how through that he now has over 100,000 monthly partners. I wanted that testimony but I didn't have $10,000 so I came out in faith. Never ever forget that God gives seed to a sower and He multiplies the seed sown. Around August of last year I had the $10,000 and I went to see Baba and placed it in his hands. He began to pray some dangerous prayers, one of the things he said was "let this $10,000 become change to you". I told him that I wanted expansion in my business and my own estate and many more. Looking back between then and now God has been faithful! $10,000 is no longer a lot of money, Sapphire Scents is expanding rapidly, investors and business partners are rolling and we have the land for Sapphire Estate. As if that was not enough, God began to mention my name in high places and men of stature began to look for me! The proudest moment of my life so far is coming on the 28th of April I will be talking at a dinner organized by Kings College Old Boys Association by Gods grace. If you are a Kings College Old Boy you will know that it is a privilege to address Kingsmen. Kings College has produced Nigeria's finest and greatest men and to be offered that platform is totally unforgettable to me. If you will begin to use your faith to trust God to give you seeds to sow you will watch your life shine like the sun. Don't listen to those fools who say nonsense about pastors and seed sowing I am a testimony and my results are undeniable. Beloved you need to embrace this part of salvation. You will see results like never before. You too can be a social media evangelist, kindly share and repost this Gospel of Jesus Christ so that others can be blessed just like you have been blessed.

A Nagging Wife

"Where are you coming from? Work has closed since 6pm you are just getting home at 7:30pm, where did you go? I hope you don't have a girlfriend? I don't know what they see in you, money you no get, see how fat you are? They are just deceiving you. I made the mistake of marrying you now I am stuck here" Louis picked his car keys and walked out, he got into his car and looked for an hotel to sleep. He knew right then that he couldn't be with that woman. She was so gentle before they married but all she does these days is nag. He had some money problems but if he combined his problems with his wife's nagging Louis knew he would die before his time. The next day he began to look for an apartment, it was a smaller place and less comfortable than the house he shared with his wife but he would rather live in peace in a one bedroom than live in a duplex with a nagging woman. Proverbs 21:19 says: It is better to live in a desert than with a quarrelsome and nagging wife. Solomon had 700 wives and 300 concubines, he must have seen all sorts. I am sure that one of the things he discovered is that a quarrelsome and nagging wife is IMPOSSIBLE to please! The desert is a hot place, there is no comfort in the desert but the Bible says it is BETTER that way than to stay with a nagging wife. Most women that nag usually have a reason but some have the habit. Men please be careful, if you notice that your girlfriend is always criticizing the government, pastors, friends and everything around her, run! By the time you marry her you will be the number one object of her criticism. A nagging woman will destroy your self esteem with her mouth. She will make you feel less than a man regardless of what you do for her, she will never appreciate the good but will always jump and revel on bad things, she feeds on negativity. Run away from that kind of woman! Watch out for the traits! You can't be successful or live long with a nagging wife. May God help us all in Jesus name.

God Will Carry You

"Eeeh Jesus how am I going to cope with 4 children? God you gave me this job how can I lose it? " Femi was deep in thought as he prayed and then he heard a voice say "Isaiah 46:4" he brought out his bible and read it; even to your old age and gray hairs I am He, I am He who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you. Peace flooded Femi's heart, he knew he had answers to his prayers and he began to give thanks. In less than a week he had all the money to start his own business and provide for his family. Whenever you have any challenge, this is how you think "how am I going to pay the house rent? How am I going to pay the school fees?" How am I going to get another job? Most of our challenges have a constant factor "I". We think we are to take care of us but that is NOT true! It is God who takes care of us! I love Psalm 100:3 which says "Know that the LORD is God. It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture." You did not create yourself, God created you! He also said He will take care of you till your OLD AGE! Learn to trust God! They say "don't put your eggs in one basket" but with God you can put the entire poultry in God's hands and He won't fail you. Jesus NEVER fails! If you trust Him to sort you out, He will! Trust is an action word, refuse worry about that issue, don't call friends, take it to God and He will send help.

Don't Define Your Life Based on A Zodiac Sign

When Ify was looking for a boyfriend she was always eager to know what month his birthday was so she could check his horoscope. She was born in late October so according to the horoscopes she was a Libra and according to the horoscope calendar, those who are born in late May (Gemini) do best with Libras so for the next five years of her life, the only kind of men she dated were Geminis. To her surprise, none of the relationships worked out well even though the horoscope had said she was most compatible with Geminis. She saw many of her friends marry the wrong signs and get along properly. It was only after her most recent heartbreak that she turned to God and began to read her bible. She flipped her bible open one morning and her eyes went to Deuteronomy 4:19 (NLT) And when you look up into the sky and see the sun, moon, and stars--all the forces of heaven--don't be seduced into worshiping them. The LORD your God gave them to all the peoples of the earth. Ify was shocked, she had no idea that a scripture like that existed. Ify had been a church goer all her life but she had been basing one of the most important decisions of her life on the constellation of the stars and the moon. She fell down on her knees and confessed her sins to God, she made up her mind that she would only base her decisions on what God said from that moment on. God honored Ify, 3 months later, she met the man of her dreams and his zodiac sign was totally wrong. It has become a trend amongst Christians today to call themselves Aries, Saggitarius, Cancer, Leo, Taurus and all other names that God did not give them. Beloved, you are practicing idol worship and God hates it! The bible says God gave the moon, stars and all the constellation to serve us! Why are you reducing yourself to the shape of a bull and a crab or a lizard when God said He created you in His image! There is no bull or goat or crab in you, what you have in you is God! God breathed himself in you that's the dimension at which you operate! It is one of the subtle strategies of the end time the devil is using to lure people from Gods plan for their lives. Wipe that "Aries Chic" or "Leo Boss" caption off your Instagram and replace it with "Son of the Most High" or "Zion Chic". You carry God in you! May you have the results of God and not the result of a goat in Jesus name.

Association Is Important

One of the most tragic verses in the Bible is 1 Samuel 31:5 5When the armor-bearer saw that Saul was dead, he too fell on his sword and died with him. 6So Saul and his three sons and his armor-bearer and all his men died together that same day. Saul's three sons and his armour bearer did not have to die! They were young men with a bright future before them BUT they were being led by a doomed man and so they were doomed! Not because they did something bad but because they were implicated by association! Beware of whom you follow! If you follow a cursed man, you will attract curses and misfortune into your life! In your workplace don't do anything that is wrong by Bible standards, it's okay if they fire you but don't do certain things because it is "order from above". You can attract curses and misfortune that way! Lot followed Abraham and he became very wealthy. Genesis 13:5-6 Lot, who was moving about with Abram, also had flocks and herds and tents. 6But the land could not support them while they stayed together, for their possessions were so great that they were not able to stay together. If you read a bit more you will realize that when Lot left Abraham he lost his wealth! There is a blessing that comes with association! From today watch the people you associate with and the things going on in their lives. May you be sensitive to spiritual truths in Jesus name.

The Crown of Thorns

One of the most profound details of the crucifixion of Jesus was the crown of thorns. The soldiers were mocking Jesus because He called Himself the King of the Jews so they made a crown of thorns and put it on his head and of course He started bleeding from the head. His handsome face was soaked in blood flowing from His head. It was not a pretty sight, the face of Jesus became shameful! If someone is blessed in Africa, they would say there is blessing on his head and if someone is cursed they would say he should go and wash his head. Blessings and curses start from the head and the moment Jesus began to bleed from the head, every curse and shame was wiped away! There was a curse that had been following man from Genesis when God cursed the ground because of man in Genesis 3: 17-19 To Adam He said, “Because you listened to your wife and ate fruit from the tree about which I commanded you, ‘You must not eat from it,’ “Cursed is the ground because of you; through painful toil you will eat food from it all the days of your life. 18It will produce thorns and thistles for you, and you will eat the plants of the field. 19By the sweat of your brow you will eat your food until you return to the ground, since from it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you will return.” The blood that began to flow from the head of Jesus did two things; 1. It took away our shame and everything that will prevent us from getting favor. 2. It reversed the curse on the land and activated the "no hustle" anointing. You won't hustle for anything God will bring it you easily! What a powerful grace we enjoy! If you are not born again you are missing out! You too can enjoy this grace. Say after me "Dear Jesus, I believe you died for me and You are seated at the right hand of the Father. Come into my heart and give me a brand new beginning, I accept You as my Lord and Savior." Congrats! If you said this prayer you are born again!

The Gospel of Easter

The Gospel of Easter is the Gospel of Jesus and it is the story of a seed that died and when it rose up it bore many fruits. Jesus said about His death and resurrection in John 12:24 I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat is planted in the soil and dies, it remains alone. But its death will produce many new kernels--a plentiful harvest of new lives. The celebration of Easter is the celebration of seed, time and harvest. Jesus embraced this principle, you should also do the same. Sorry to disappoint you but prosperity does not answer to prayer and fasting. When you let go of what is in your hand, God will let go of what is in His hands. If you want to be a millionaire, trust God for a million Naira that you can sow and He will give it to you because He gives seed to a sower BUT God is watching what you did with 500 Naira, if you are faithful in little, you will be faithful in much. I have learnt by experience that you can never lack what you give constantly. Begin to observe what you give constantly and you will realize that your outflow decides your inflow. God gave us all He had in Jesus that's why ALL power in heaven and earth belong to Jesus. Happy Easter.

Dear Lady Don't Compromise

"Baby there is money, anything you need I will give it to you, don't you see your friends driving new cars and traveling to Dubai? Don't you want to buy iPhone 7 and the latest Gucci bag? My baby all of that can happen if you show me some love" 😁 Chief Fowosere smiled mischievously at Anita. She was truly tempted, she looked at her dusty feet and checked out her second hand clothes then she thought of her service to God. She was a worker and everyone knew that she was a church girl. She had been trusting God to make a way for her and she would keep trusting Him or die trying. She smiled at Chief politely and said " Sir I am a born again Christian and God will supply all my needs. Jesus is the only Sugar Daddy I need" then she walked away. Anita cried as she walked and she began to pray; she was truly tired of all the ridicule by her friends who were not Christians, they were driving nice cars and living large. She was so lost in thought that she didn't notice the white G wagon that pulled up beside her. James called her name and she turned. She knew James but she didn't know he had a G wagon. He asked to drop her off and she agreed. It was in the car that he told her that Chief Owonikoko was his uncle and he heard everything she said to him. He had made up his mind to marry her if she would have him and they would take things one step at a time. Seven months later Anita was married to James and they lived happily ever after. Ladies there may be a lot of temptation to sleep with men for money because of the challenges you may be facing. Cream, weaveon, clothes, shoes, bags (there is this new one called body scrub as if they don't bathe every morning 😅😅) all of these cost a lot of money but trust God to meet your needs and He will! Learn to sow seeds for the things you want, it is a principle that never fails! Be that Proverbs 31 woman. The Bible says her in Proverbs 31:30 (NIV) Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.

Precious Holy Spirit

Have you ever had a mentor whom you always meet for advise and then after advising you, you tell him "I have a better idea than the one you gave me ". Then you go to him like 3 other times and never do what he says. The next time you go there you won't be welcome. It is the same with the Holy Spirit, He is a Teacher, Helper and Comforter. The Holy Spirit mentors you by giving you instructions, the more instructions you follow the closer the Holy Spirit comes and the more sensitive you become. Isaiah 48:17-18 17This is what the Lord says— your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: “I am the Lord your God, who teaches you what is best for you, who directs you in the way you should go. 18If only you had paid attention to my commands, your peace would have been like a river, your well-being like the waves of the sea. Certain things grieve the Holy Spirit; He hates it when people gossip and He doesn't operate in an atmosphere of strife. Ephesians 4:29 Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. The Holy Spirit is not a bird, He is not fire, He is not water, He is a Person, He is real, He is the third Person of the GodHead. He was the One who brooded over the waters at creation, He was the one who planted Jesus in Mary's womb. You will live constantly below your potential if you don't engage the Holy Spirit, if you don't make Him your Master Mentor. He will give you ideas that will change your life forever. From today be conscious of the Holy Spirit, know that He is with you at all times. He is there in your car and at your office and in your house. He is a companion, talk to Him, ask Him to interpret the Bible to you and to reveal secrets to you and He will. If you want a closer walk with the Holy Spirit say after me "Precious Holy Spirit come and be my Master Mentor from now on, I want to know You and hear You. I open the door of my heart and I ask you to fill me with Your presence in Jesus name. Amen Something will happen to you. You will feel like a brand new person. You have just started living.
