I REALLY NEED TO KNOW.

​I NEED TO KNOW.



No matter how popular a man is; even if you’re the only influential man in the world, you are still a LOCAL CHAMPION.



You ask, How? 

I say, Your “championship” began{and will definitely end} in a “locality”.



*”The bodies”{which is what we all will be called when we die, no matter how affluent/influential such a person is whilst alive}, would not be buried in SPACE, IT{not “sir or ma”, “king or queen” again} would be buried “six feet under”, in the ground in a LOCALity.*



The Queen’s palace is in her locality; which is where she wields the most power over her subjects (she cannot come and give orders in my house here)



The Presidents/ General Overseers/ “Ogas at the top”, wields the most power{not the manipulative type} in their respective “homes” which is situated in their LOCALity.



Same thing applies to all the rich/wealthy/affluents/influential men…



So, why??? Why do you want to do all your possible best to sell/loose your soul in order to be a LOCAL CHAMPION? Why???

Matthew 16:26




“The Man” who even has the actual “world” (and heavenly) recognition because He wields power in every nook and cranny of the states/province of every country in the whole world/universe, is not “showing off”. He is just there, silently observing{and doing his possible best to correct/heal} all the madness and foolishness and “name it”, of humans…



…”The Man” popularly known as THE WORD OF THE LORD aka THE LION AND THE LAMB aka THE PRINCE OF PEACE aka ALPHA AND OMEGA aka THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD aka…….. *guess*



Like a popular African proverb says~ “NO MAN CAN OUTWIT THE ANCESTORS”.



REPENT!!!

THE CAVE AGE.

​#DailyDevotional – Satanists that have visited my office made it very clear that they entered Satanism for power.  What kind of power?  Power over yourself, power over others, power over your surroundings.


Regarding identity, it is easy to see how America’s latchkey kids, who have no one to talk to, pray with or hug in a moment of need, to be drawn to the shining serpent who promises love, loyalty and all the fun in the world!


There is a revival of Satanism raging in the streets of America that is sweeping our children into a sewer of drugs, sex, rape, murder and rebellion against all authority.


In 1945, the seven top offenses in public schools were listed as:


1. Talking

2. Chewing gum

3. Making noise

4. Running in the halls

5. Getting out of turn in line

6. Wearing improper clothing

7. Not putting paper in wastebaskets


Today they are:


1. Rape

2. Robbery

3. Assault

4. Burglary

5. Arson

6. Bombings

7. Murder


How did America fall so far in just one generation?  At the rate America is decaying morally, we will soon have to change our national symbol from an eagle to a vulture.  Intellectually, we are in the space age; spiritually we are in the cave age. 


“Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.”

KNOW “THE TRUTH”.

​*REMEMBER;*


*_”John  8:32  And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free._*   


*_John  8:36  If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free INDEED.”_*


*IF YOU ARE STILL IN ANY FORM OF BONDAGE, YOU DO NOT KNOW “THE TRUTH” {it means that what you actually know is A LIE that has been dressed up to look like THE TRUTH}.*

THE WORKINGS OF THE TRINITY.

*THE WORKINGS OF THE TRINITY.*



When you read 1 Kings 19:9-15, you’ll understand the workings of THE TRINITY better because you’ll note how “The WORD OF THE LORD{JESUS CHRIST}” came to answer Elijah firstly in “verse 9”, showing him THE WAY in “verse 11a”.



The HOLY SPIRIT attended to Elijah in “verse 12b” using “a still small voice”.



And then, THE LORD{JEHOVAH YAHWEH} came Himself in “verse 13b” and gave Elijah the necessary instructions in verse 15-18. 



Psalms 138:2 “I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: FOR THOU HAST MAGNIFIED THY WORD ABOVE ALL THY NAME.”




Also, we can see the workings of THE TRINITY at creation in Genesis;


The HOLY SPIRIT started in Genesis 1:2 (in the spirit realm).



The “WORD OF THE LORD{John 1:1}” continued in Genesis 1:3-31 as recorded in Genesis 1:1 (still in the “spirit realm”), finishing in Genesis 2:1-3.



The LORD GOD JEHOVAH YAHWEH Himself then started and finished it all in Genesis 2:4-25 in the physical realm.

THE “RICH” MAN.

​THE RICH MAN.


Thank You Holy Spirit.



Matthew  19:24  “And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.” Mark 10:25, Luke 18:25.



What would make it very difficult for “a rich man” to enter into GOD’S kingdom is necessarily not the “money” he has.



Infact, “Rich Man” in that (spiritual) context, refers to anyone who has a “leverage” over another…



…and this “leverage” could be “position”, “title”, “age”, “sex”, “gifts/talents”, “affluence”, “poverty”, “health”, etc



When you use any of the above listed leverages to act/serve as “lord/god” over your fellow human being, Matthew 19:24 quoted above, is talking to you.



Luke  

16:19 There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day:  


16:20 And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores,


16:22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;


16:27 Then he{the rich man} said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him{the poor man} to my father’s house:  


16:28 For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment.  

OBEYING THE NEW ORDER.

​OBEYING THE NEW ORDER.



Be very careful when handling The Word of God so that you don’t commit grievious sins while at it.



Exodus  20:5  Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

Numbers 14:18. 



It is the same GOD that gave the instructions in Exodus 20:5 above that later gave the one in Deuteronomy 24:16 below.



Deuteronomy  24:16 The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, neither shall the children be put to death for the fathers: every man shall be put to death for his own sin.

Ezekiel 18:1-4, Jeremiah 31:29-3.



And it is still this same GOD that gave the “tithing” instructions in Deuteronomy 14:22-29 that later gave the one in Malachi 3:6-12



Remember; It is this same GOD Who told Moses to strike the rock in Exodus 17:4-6, that later told him to speak to the rock in Numbers 20:7-8



Numbers  20:12 “And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron, Because ye believed me not, to sanctify me in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore ye shall not bring this congregation into the land which I have given them.”



#HOLYSPIRIT IS NEEDED

#LEARN FROM MOSES LIFE STORY. 

#OBEDIENCE IS KEY

#DO NOT MISS THE PROMISED LAND.

HAPPY FATHERS DAY!!!

​HAPPY FATHERS DAY.



Mark  2:17  

“When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.”



The “true/good fathers” have their rewards in Heaven. IT IS THE “UNTRUE” ONES WHO NEED OUR LOVE/PRAYERS/WISHES, MOST.



Complaining, murmuring against, and cursing the bad fathers would not make the world a better place but worsen it the more. (Remember what The Word of God said about the potency of the words of our mouths~ Matthew 12:34-37)



Some are even now segregating; calling some “fathers” and others “Dad”.. #SMH



*I tell you THE TRUTH now. Any “male” whose sperm has undergone the natural process and gotten mixed to become “a child”, IS A FATHER.*



And it is a very heart breaking pity that some men themselves take part in wishing themselves evil because as long as you’re a man{whether infant, toddler, youth, or very old}, YOU ARE A FATHER and when you open your mouth to curse/segregate any father{yours or others} in any way, you’re sowing a seed you will definitely reap. So, repent!



When are we going to start practicing what we preach, and doing what we hear{James1:22-24}??? When???


Because it is only then{when our minds would’ve been renewed} that our “lights” will shine brightly and our “saltness”{i.e, the concentration of our “salt”} will be felt most.



We don’t experience segregation when it comes to “mothers day”. 


We don’t hear or read words like “some mothers are true/good while others are false/evil {even when it is glaringly so}, etc” 


Instead,  we give them accolades for doing what they were created by GOD to do, forgetting Matthew 6:1-6{which in other words, is simply saying that when you receive accolades from men, then don’t except to get any from GOD your creator}.



It is high time we all get wisdom{Proverbs 4:5-7; 16:16} and REPENT accordingly.



Proverbs  19:8  “He that getteth wisdom loveth his own soul: he that keepeth understanding shall find good.”



HAPPY FATHERS DAY!!!

REPENTANCE FROM DEAD WORKS.

It’s always saddening when I hear people of the older generation here say this now;  


“We’ve been here even before your Dad was born and our spirituality is way high so we should be leading and teaching you. Besides, The Spirit leads one into the best of circumstances; to do pleasant things, and so on and so forth…”



Why do I get saddened?

 

  • Because that was the same thing they said to Jesus Christ as recorded in the scriptures. 


  • Because it gives me this “deja vu” kind of feeling~ that the whole scenario has happened to me before… 


…and to cap it all, I remember the tale of the Scribes and Pharisees versus Jesus Christ, as recorded in the scriptures~ Matthew 16:21, Luke 9:22; 17:25.



I now ask; is Matthew 4:1 the best of circumstances? Is the happenings in Matthew 21:12; 23:13-39 “pleasant things”?


(Infact, I got a rhema from Matt 21:12; that a particular congregation has SOLD THE “DOVE” given to them to satan and so, such a dove has become “SILLY” to GOD~ Hosea 7:11)

 


With everything Christ did, “the elders” and the scribes and the pharisees, never saw the good in it and even when Christ did the “pleasant things”, e.g, Matthew 21:15, your fore fathers too didn’t see it as “pleasant” because it got on their nerves..



Christ said it then and is even now saying it all over again… #SMH {Luke 18:8}⬇


John  

8:38 I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father.  


8:39 They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham’s children, ye would do the works of Abraham.  


8:40 But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.  


8:41 Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.  


8:42 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.  


8:43 WHY DO YE NOT UNDERSTAND MY SPEECH? EVEN BECAUSE YE CANNOT HEAR MY WORD.  


8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.  


8:45 AND BECAUSE I TELL YOU THE TRUTH, YE BELIEVE ME NOT.

BE WATCHFUL. BE VIGILANT.

​#DailyDevotional – The names of Satan given in the word of God describing his position:


1. The Anointed Cherub.  Ezekiel 28:14  Satan was created as an archangel.  This title describes Satan in his original exalted position.


2. The Prince of the Power of the Air.  Ephesians 2:2  This title pictures Satan and his principalities as being rulers in a kingdom that dominates the atmosphere of the earth.  I believe this is the reason that Christian television is under such attack.  Television signals go through the air, which is Satan’s domain.  


3. The Prince of this World.  John 12:31; 16:11  Satan is the god of this World.  Those who have made a commitment to Jesus Christ are “in the world but not of the world.”  The phrase “the world” includes anyone who has not accepted Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.


4. The God of this Age.  2 Corinthians 4:4  This title has been translated ‘the god of this world” KJV, but the term is not “cosmos” but “aion.”  Cosmos is world, aion is age.  The focus here is on a spirit of the age that is Christ-rejecting and human-centered.  Man has become God, which is the basic concept of humanism.


5. The Prince of Demons.  Matthew 12:24; Luke 11:15  Jesus was accused by the Pharisees of casting out demons, by the power of Beelzebub, the ruler of demons Luke 11:15.  Since the enemies of Christ could not deny that he had supernatural power, to avoid admitting Jesus had power with God, they said His power came from Beelzebub.

THE CHRISTIAN WORSHIP OF GOD THE FATHER…

​THE CHRISTIAN WORSHIP OF GOD, THE FATHER; AND THE ERROR OF OVER-SABI 


Let’s say a person wants to praise God in Yoruba and he or she says:


Ẹniti iṣe Olubukún ati Alagbara na kanṣoṣo! 


Ọba awọn ọba, ati Oluwa awọn oluwa!


Ẹnikanṣoṣo ti o ni aikú! 


Ti ngbe inu imọlẹ ti a kò le sunmọ!


Ẹniti enia kan kò ri rí ti kò si le ri! 


Ẹniti ọla ati agbara titi lai iṣe tirẹ! 


The person would be simply quoting 1 Timothy 6:15 & 16.


Which contains these names and characteristics Paul the apostle ascribed to God 


1 Timothy 6:15

which He will manifest in His own time, He who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings and Lord of lords


[Yoruba Bible]

Eyiti yio fihàn ni igba tirẹ̀, Ẹniti iṣe Olubukún ati Alagbara na kanṣoṣo, Ọba awọn ọba, ati Oluwa awọn oluwa;


1 Timothy 6:16

who alone has immortality, dwelling in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see, to whom be honor and everlasting power. Amen.


[Yoruba Bible]

Ẹnikanṣoṣo ti o ni aikú, ti ngbe inu imọlẹ ti a kò le sunmọ, ẹniti enia kan kò ri rí ti kò si le ri: ẹniti ọla ati agbara titi lai iṣe tirẹ. Amin.


In the opinion of some, Paul probably did not have the revelation of Christ and didn’t know the fatherhood of God. 


Otherwise he should have just said


1 Timothy 6:15 (Alakowe version)

Which He will manifest in His own time, He who is the blessed Father, the Father of kings and Father of lords


1 Timothy 6:16 (Alakowe version)

Who alone has fatherhood, dwelling in approachable fatherhood, which all sons with revelation have seen and can see, to whom be the honor of continuous fatherhood. Amen.


Consider the first recorded prayer of the apostles and disciples


Acts 4:24


KJV

And when they heard that, they lifted up their voice to God with one accord, and said, Lord, thou art GOD, WHICH HAST MADE HEAVEN, AND EARTH, AND THE SEA, AND ALL THAT IN THEM IS:


NLT

Then all the believers were united as they lifted their voices in prayer: ‘O SOVEREIGN LORD, CREATOR OF HEAVEN AND EARTH, THE SEA, AND EVERYTHING IN THEM


Yoruba Bible says


Nigbati nwọn si gbọ́, nwọn fi ọkàn kan gbé ohùn wọn soke si Ọlọrun nwọn si wipe, OLUWA, ÌWỌ TI O DA ỌRUN ON AIYE, ATI OHUN GBOGBO TI MBẸ NINU WỌN


Igbo Bible says 


Ma mb͕e ha nuru ya, ha were otù obi welie olu-ha kpọkue Chineke, si, ỌKAAKAA ONYE-NWE-AYI, GI ONWE-GI BU ONYE KÈRE ELU-IGWE NA ALA NA OKÉ OSIMIRI, NA IHE NILE DI HA NIME


Please read the entire prayer from Acts 4: 24-30, and search for where they called God Father ….


Yet the prayer was exceeding powerful and effective. 


They were not just addressing the Father of the family, they were addressing the King of the Kingdom. Please note that in this prayer, twice (verses 27&30) they called Jesus the holy CHILD of God. Other translations say “holy SERVANT”


Both are correct (Greek: PAIS). 


Concerning the family of God, Christ is the Son and He calls the Father, Father; but concerning the kingdom, Christ is the servant and calls Him God. 


John 20:17

Jesus said to her, “Do not cling to Me, for I have not yet ascended to My Father; but go to My brethren and say to them, ‘I am ascending to MY FATHER and YOUR FATHER, and to MY GOD and YOUR GOD.’


Note that He didn’t just say My Father and your Father, but added My God and your God. Also note that He didn’t say OUR Father or OUR God, but my AND yours. 


Even THE Son of God calls Him BOTH Father and God. 


One pertains to family and the other pertains to Kingdom 


See Again


Revelation 3:21

“To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with MY FATHER on His throne.


Revelation 3:12

“He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of MY GOD, and he shall go out no more. And I will write on him the name of MY GOD and the name of the city of MY GOD, the New Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from MY GOD. And I will write on him My new name.


In matters of His works and His worship, He is GOD (Creator, King of kings, Lord of lords)


In matters of inheritance and representation, He is FATHER.


This is the nature of our relationship with God, the Father.


Concerning the family of God, there is neither male nor female, we all are sons of God in Christ Jesus 


Galatians 3:26

For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus.


Galatians 3:27

For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ.


Galatians 3:28

There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is NEITHER MALE NOR FEMALE; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.


But concerning the kingdom as it devolves on the church on earth, the head of every man is Christ, the head of the woman is the man, and the head of Christ is God. 


1 Corinthians 11:3

But I want you to know that the head of EVERY MAN is Christ, THE head of WOMAN is man, and the HEAD OF CHRIST is God.


Some, like toddlers, don’t understand this. 


They seem to understand the matter of family, but not the matter of kingdom. They seem to understand the matter of grace but not the matter of authority. 


It is true that some names are not appropriate for God; and we know that God is our Father, but that is not His only name. 


Concerning referring to the names of different gods from your old tradition, are you also without knowledge?


1 Corinthians 8:5

ACCORDING TO SOME PEOPLE, THERE ARE MANY SO-CALLED GODS AND MANY LORDS, both in heaven and on earth.


1 Corinthians 8:6

BUT WE KNOW THAT THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD, the Father, who created everything, and we exist for him. And there is only one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom God made everything and through whom we have been given life.


1 Corinthians 8:7

HOWEVER, NOT ALL CHRISTIANS REALIZE THIS. SOME ARE ACCUSTOMED TO THINKING OF IDOLS AS BEING REAL, so when they eat food that has been offered to idols, they think of it as the worship of real gods, and their weak consciences are violated.


And again 


Acts 17:23

For as I was walking along I saw your many altars. And one of them had this inscription on it–‘To an Unknown God.’ YOU HAVE BEEN WORSHIPING HIM WITHOUT KNOWING WHO HE IS, AND NOW I WISH TO TELL YOU ABOUT HIM.


Acts 17:24

‘He is the God who made the world and everything in it. Since he is Lord of heaven and earth, he doesn’t live in man-made temples…


It is not peculiar to Africa. That was 1st century Asia. They were worshipping the God they didnt know. 


And Paul declared to them that 

Ọlọrun Aimọ́ was “Oluwa ọrun on aiye to da aiye ati ohun gbogbo ti mbẹ ninu rẹ̀” 


Christian worship has replaced and superseded traditions and religions of various peoples and nations; rendering them useless, because it is the true worship.


Jesus revealed the mystery of God, both of the Father, and the Son (see Colossians 2:2)  and made us His serving sons. 


Whatsoever some forefathers may have felt about Olowogbogboro or Amadioha or Zeus…..they were either talking about spirits who are no gods, or WORSHIPPING AN “UNKNOWN GOD”.


Some of those traditional names are useless, but some of them are still useful because such names describe qualities that can only be ascribed to GOD {JEHOVAH YAHWEH}, so Christian worship has incorporated them, and rightly so.


Please let us endeavour to learn properly the simple things of scripture before electing ourselves the teachers of the whole church. 


Thank you.
