Principles for Quality Fatherhood

There is an ordinance that all fathers should know and if you are struggling with money to take care of your children, this may just be your deliverance. When we had our first daughter Ruby, we were still squatting in my brother's house and we didn't even have a car so I took my wife to the hospital in a cab and brought her back with my baby in a cab. Money was very tight and I was trusting God on how to take care of my family. People began to come and greet us and I remember vividly that when one of our friends came, he gave me an envelope with N10,000 in it and the Holy Spirit said to me "don't touch it, sow it". Ladies and gentlemen, that 10k was like one million naira at that time but I knew it was the Holy Spirit. I got to church and I put that money on the altar then I asked God to bless me so I could take care of my family, I asked that God should help me give them the best and from that day things began to get better. My daughters are ages 3 and 1 and God has helped me to give them the very best. Are you a father or an expectant father? Sow the first seed anyone gives to your baby and watch God send you help and if you missed it at that time, you can still take a seed and sow it for your children. The bible says in Exodus 34:19 "The first offspring of every womb belongs to me, including all the firstborn males of your livestock, whether from herd or flock." Obviously you can't drop your baby in the offering basket 😁😁🤣 but you can redeem with a seed and strike a covenant of abundance with God. I pray for all fathers and husbands that God will open your eyes to understand that the spiritual controls the physical in Jesus name.

Faith Without Works is Dead

So its another year and once again like previous years you have written down the things you want to achieve this year, most of them are big dreams and you don't even know how it will come to pass but you wrote it down nonetheless and you are trusting God to bring it to pass. You are going to pray and fast over the list and God will make it happen. That's good but it's not good enough because faith without works is DEAD! (James 2:14) Faith must have corresponding action! So you want to buy a car this year? Do you know the exact one you want? Have you gone to a car shop to spy the land? You may not have a kobo right now but sit in the car of your dreams, even request to drive it around a little; that is spying the land! Begin to put money aside, your dream may cost 10 million but begin to save 1000 Naira, the journey of a thousand miles begins with a step! God may instruct you to sow your savings or He may send you 10 million but you must take steps if your dreams will come true this year. David knew his stone could not kill Goliath but that was the seed he had to exercise his faith. He knew that when he threw the stone God would take over! This year, do your best and God will do the rest but don't sit on your hands and expect miracles to fall on your laps, you must take steps and as you do you will see God in action in Jesus name. You too can be a social media evangelist kindly share so that others can be blessed as you have been blessed. Thank you for reading. #YearofTheNew #BillionNairaMark #JesusDidIt #ThankYouJesus

You Need The Breath of God

One scripture that has been ringing in my head for the past week is Genesis 2:7 "Then the LORD God formed the man from the dust of the ground. He breathed the breath of life into the man's nostrils, and the man became a living person." I need you to imagine this; imagine God forming you with his hands, He is a master craftsman, He chiseled your nose and formed your cheekbones, your eyes, hands and legs but by the time He was done you were a beautiful piece of clay just like the sand castles we used to build on the beach. Then the next thing God did was to bend down to the ground and he breathed into your nose and suddenly your skin changed from sand to beautiful soft leather, your eyes opened, your hair grew then you stood upright and began to walk! The breath of life! The way God breathed into man is the way He breathes into everything He wants to bless. You can go to Yale and Harvard but if God doesn't breathe on your career, you will be like that beautiful piece of clay in the sand. You may have great ideas for business but if God doesn't breathe on your business your company will never take off. When God breathes on anything it takes on a life of its own, things are just happening and you know it has nothing to do with you! Do you have to shake in the morning to make your blood flow? Do you have to shake your head to make it function? The breath of God is the blessing of God and the blessing knows what to do! Stop chasing after people to help you, go for the breath of God. Take a minute to pray and say "God breathe on the work of my hands" God is NOT a prayer requesting God, He is a prayer ANSWERING God! Whenever you pray, God is willing to answer. You will share your testimony in Jesus name. You too can be a social media evangelist kindly share so that others can be blessed as you have been blessed.

Why The Prophetic May Not Come True In Your Life

One of the most tragic factors that kill Christians is ignorance. The bible says my people perish for lack of knowledge not lack of prayer and fasting or sowing seeds and tithing but LACK OF KNOWLEDGE! Your pastor may be praying for the church and everyone is shouting "Amen" but the truth is not everyone shouting Amen at the top of their lungs will be blessed! There are conditions that makes the prayers of a man of God come true in your life. 1. How you receive the man of God: Elisha asked for a double portion of Elijah's anointing but Elijah told him "if you see me go up to heaven, you will have it". As Elijah went up Elisha screamed "my father, my father". He did not scream "my pastor or my prophet" Newsflash! Only sons have the right to inherit! If you want the word of a man of God to come to pass in your life, you must see them as your father. Only a foolish son insults his father and only a bastard will let them insult his father in your presence and keep quiet. When people start talking about your pastor and you sit there and smile or you even join them then you come to church and say "amen" to his prayers, you are wasting your time because his prayers will NEVER come to pass over you. 2. Joy: Isaiah 12:3 says "with joy we draw water from the wells of salvation". Joy is a force, it brings answers to your prayers! Surround yourself with worship music, dance, sing and shout today and watch how blessings and answer to prayers will begin to flow to you. 3. Confessing the Word: When your pastor declares a word that you believe is for you, write it down and begin to confess it over yourself everyday. Every morning and night declare that "money will not be my problem this year". Your life moves in the direction of your words, you may not see it immediately but a process has began and in few months you will realise that your needs are constantly being met. May we walk in wisdom this year in Jesus name. You too can be a social media evangelist kindly share so that others can be blessed as you have been blessed.

Testimony Thursday

As people congratulated me for being named one of the 100 most influential Nigerians for 2017 my mind flashed back to December 2014. I remember walking to City Park Wuse from my office, I love the serenity of that place and if government is ever willing to sell that property I will buy it. I have a spot where I pray and meditate everytime I go there. On this day, I was just speaking in tongues and pouring my heart to God because of all the challenges I was facing; 130k salary, no house, no car, matrress on the floor with an 8 month pregnant wife and people who don't like you giving you the "ntoi 😛😛😜😜😜 God don catch you" look. I was overwhelmed and as I poured my heart to God, the Holy Spirit led me to Isaiah 41:18 (ERV)" I will change the desert into a lake filled with water ". He began to tell me that I could not finish drinking the water in a lake and that He would give me something that I would drink from and be full and others would drink and be full. Few months later, Sapphire Scents started. Your mess is a message, your test is a testimony, God will use your adverse situation to advertise you, God will take you from the pit and set you on high in the. This is my testimony and I give God all the glory. You too can be a social media evangelist kindly share so that others can be blessed as you have been blessed.

Laws of Increase;Gratitude

We started a series called "Laws of Increase" todayis Part 2. Ladies and gentlemen WHATEVER you are grateful for will increase. The word that comes out of your mouth the most should be "Thank You Jesus" many people don't understand why I use the hashtag #JesusDidIt and #ThankYouJesus it is because I understand that whatever I thank God for will multiply. Jesus wanted to feed 5000 people, He took the little that He had and gave thanks for it and it multiplied. If you are not grateful for what you have more will never come. Imagine if Jesus had complained, the bread and fish would not have multiplied. It doesn't matter how little what you have is and it might not be convenient to be grateful sometimes but rather than complain just look up, raise your hands and say "Thank You Jesus" Many people have a prayer list but not many people have a thanksgiving list. You NEED a thanksgiving list. Write out everything God has done for you after this post and thank God for them every morning and night. You will begin to notice how fast things will be happening for you. The reward for gratitude is increase and multiplication. Let me teach you a secret; when people look down on you and make you feel like a nobody don't be sad. Go into your room and give thanks. That same person who looked down on you will soon look up to you! Jeremiah 30:19 says: And out of them shall proceed thanksgiving and the voice of them that make merry: and I will multiply them, and they shall not be few; I will also glorify them, and they shall not be small. As you apply these principles everything around you will multiply in Jesus name.

Laws of Increase (Part 1)

We are starting a series called "Laws of Increase" today is Part 1. "My friend I don't understand it, we started this business together, mine has gone under while yours has grown to many branches. How did you do it?" Ladies and gentlemen, it's not normal for things to grow on the earth. The moment you drive a new car out of the shop the value starts going down, if you left soup without warming it, it will go stale, if you bite out of an apple and left it there for few hours it will change color, if you just match on the accelerator of your car without holding the steering, you will have an accident. Things don't grow normally! Increase and growth is spiritual! One of the most fascinating scriptures in the bible was about Isaac in Genesis 26:13; the man began to prosper and CONTINUED to prosper UNTIL he became very prosperous. They also tell us about another man called Nimrod who built the tower of Babel in Genesis in Genesis 10:8 (NKJV) "Nimrod BEGAN to be a mighty one in the earth. If you read the story of Nimrod and the tower of Babel you will realise that Nimrod did not CONTINUE to be a mighty man, he only BEGAN! What is the difference between Isaac and Nimrod? Isaac looked up to God, he was little in his own eyes but Nimrod was a self made man he had no respect for God. Therefore the first law for increase is the fear of God! Those who don't fear God have no future they will fail! When you tithe it is proof that you fear God because you acknowledge Him as your Source. When God is your Source you will be a prayerful person. To increase you must have a prayer pattern. You must spend time in God's presence, it is at those moments that the anointing rubs off on you. As you practise these principles you will see increase in Jesus name. You too can be a social media evangelist, share so that others can be blessed as you have been blessed. #JesusDidIt #ThankYouJesus

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.
