Few Hours to Christmas & Days to New Year: What a Season!


Compliments of the season! What a great season we are in! What a joy that our saviour Jesus Christ is born God's greatest gift to humanity! I want to believe that you have not lost the essence of the season in the euphoria of mere celebration. Yes, there is nothing wrong with celebration especially when the season calls for it. But something would be wrong when the reason for the celebration is not known and the purpose not achieved.

Jesus came to bring salvation to lost humanity in order to restore us back to God in righteousness and true relationship. So the only reason we should celebrate Christmas is that Jesus is born in our hearts and lives practically in us. If Jesus is not born in your heart celebrating Christmas has no meaning to any individual talk less of benefit. We serve a God of purpose and benefit.

Can I quickly show you:

The Seven (7) Benefits of Christmas

1. GOD LOVES YOU (As He loves the whole world).
2. HE HAS PAID FOR ALL YOUR SINS & TRESPASSES (Through Jesus).
3. GOD HAS SO MUCH VALUE FOR YOU. (He doesn't want you to perish)
4. HE HAS GIVEN HIS BEST GIFT TO YOU (His son - Jesus).
5. GOD WANTS YOU TO HAVE PEACE WITH HIM.
6. HE IS INTERESTED IN MAKING YOU A MEMBER OF HIS FAMILY & A CITIZEN OF HIS KINGDOM.
7. HE WANTS YOUR TOTAL RESTORATION (To Grace, Power, Dominion, Success, Good health, Wealth and all kinds of blessings).

When you accept the Lordship of Jesus Christ into your life you have all these mentioned to benefit. Don't you think it is necessary to do that today if you have not done that before? Remember, you cannot build well without a foundation. Salvation is the only true foundation for a true relationship with God and not empty and ceremonial religion.

I invite you to Jesus in this season of Christmas! Why should you celebrate a man you don't know and does not know you? Besides, the best way to finish 2016 and step into 2017 is to make that greatest decision called SALVATION.

In case you are ready, you can quickly say this prayer with me:
Heavenly Father, I come to Jesus now as a sinner, I cannot save or help myself, Jesus died on the cross for me, he bled for my sins. Today, I make up my mind to accept him into my life and surrender completely to him. Forgive me and come into my life. I accept you as my Lord and confess you as my saviour. Thank you for saving me and writing my name in the book of life. I receive the gift of eternal life forever, in Jesus name. Amen.

You are blessed! Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year!

Reasons Some People Succeed, Make Money While Others Don’t


I believe you have at one time or the other ask the question why is it that some are rich and while some others are poor?

Why is it that some are successful under the same environment, factors while some others are not? Or you might have even ask why is my friend having money and I do not?

To these questions, a lot of answers that are really no answers have been given to them. Some have said it is a matter of destiny, some others have attributed it to luck while many have concluded that environment is responsible.

If destiny actually means God's plan and purpose for any individual; I can conclusively say that nothing is wrong with anybody's destiny. (Jeremiah 29: 11). On the other hand, if luck is the determinant of anybody's fortune I think good luck is from God while bad luck is man made or man permitted. The reason is that if Satan is actually the cause of bad luck, he does not have the right to force anything on anybody without his or her will. The Bible says 'Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you'. (James 4: 7).

However, if it is environment factor as many have believed the Bible says 'The earth is the LORD's, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.' (Psalm 24: 1). I think this verse makes every environment good and great to produce good results when the right things are done by the individual.

I want to still establish that we live in a world of equal opportunity and we serve a God of impartiality. Besides, we live on the earth that is controlled by covenant and natural principles. Having this at the back of our minds, it is imperative to say that as far as realities of life are concerned we must play by the rules.
The big question is why are some rich, successful while others are poor and unsuccessful?

THESE ARE THE REASONS
1. THE POOR DOES NOT KNOW WHAT THE RICH KNOWS (INFORMATION)
2. THE POOR DOES NOT THINK THE WAY THE RICH THINKS (MENTALITY)
3. THE POOR DOES NOT BELIEVE WHAT THE RICH BELIEVES IN (CONVICTION, FAITH).
4. THE POOR DOES NOT SEE WHAT THE RICH SEES (VISION, IMAGINATION)
5. THE POOR DOES NOT TALK OR SAYS WHAT THE RICH SAYS (CONFESSION).
6. THE POOR DOES NOT HAVE THE MIND THAT THE RICH HAS. (COURAGE).
7. THE POOR DOES NOT DO WHAT THE RICH DOES. (ACTION).
8. THE POOR DOES NOT LIKE WHAT THE RICH LIKES. (CHOICE).
9. THE POOR DOES NOT COMPANY WITH WHOM THE RICH DOES. (GOOD ASSOCIATION).
10. THE POOR DOES NOT INVEST WHAT THE RICH DOES. (TIME).
11. THE POOR DOES NOT GO WHERE THE RICH GOES. (EXPOSURE).
12. THE POOR DOES NOT DO WITH HIS SEASON WHAT THE RICH DOES. (OPPORTUNITY).
13. THE POOR DOES NOT VALUE MUCH WHAT THE RICH DOES. (RELATIONSHIPS).
14. THE POOR DOES NOT TREASURE WHAT THE RICH DOES. (GOOD ADVICE).
15. THE POOR DOES NOT GIVE WHAT THE RICH DOES. (SACRIFICE).
16. THE POOR DOES NOT FOLLOW WHAT THE RICH DOES. (HIS PASSION).

These are the golden reasons that differentiate the poor from the rich. I want to leave this as an assignment to you to be worked on personally. For sure, God is about to change your story as you meditate on these things and make necessary changes. See you at the Top!

Power to Create and Rule Your World


With a deep thought and concern about you and your world. I have this believe that you are not yet where you desire to be.

Thank God for where you are coming from and much more where you are! But the fact remains that you are not yet there. I can see that Big dream in your heart.

I mean I can imagine the great desires of your heart - Peaceful life, Successful marriage, career, health, great finances, unlimited progress, name it! Waoo!

For sure, these things are possible in your life. But why have they not become a reality? I think the answer is the reason for this post.

God wants you to activate the Power to create and rule your world.

The first Power to create and rule your world is your THOUGHT. I'm sure your surprised because what you got is not what you expected. Somebody is asking 'You mean my THOUGHT?' 'And that is it?' Yes, your thought.

Nothing is as Natural and Supernatural like the THOUGHT of a man. Your thought looks innocent, harmless yet it is the decider of your world. Have you not heard that THOUGHTS are THINGS. Whatever that exist pre-existed as a THOUGHT.

As a matter of fact,
If it does not pre-exist as thought it cannot be allowed to exist as a thing. This is the supernatural law of creation. I call it the law of birth. 

Let me illustrate with physical birth. Is there any possibility of a woman giving birth to a child physically that has not first existed in her womb? The answer is No, of course. The reason is if a child has not 'pre-existed' in the womb there is no basis for physical manifestation. To liken this to my point, the child in the womb represents your Thought and the giving of birth of that child is the creation of the reality.

Mind what you think! As it is written As a man thinks in his heart so he is. (Proverbs 23: 7).
You have the power to think whatever thing you want, but your thought has the power to create any reality. 
Do you know that the greatest hindrances to great achievement, success and breakthrough are Negative and Small thinking? Poor results are products of small minds. And the capacity of any mind is measured by what it thinks.

May the God of heaven sanctify your mind today, increase your thinking power, enlarged the scope of your imagination, accelerate the pace of your action and confirm the contents of your expectations, in Jesus name. You are blessed.

Don't Go for Cheap Things Like This One Here


Hi, Friends! I woke up this morning with an advice to you.
What is the advice? Don't go for Cheap things! 

And do you know the cheapest thing? SYMPATHY. You know what?
SYMPATHY is not a SOLUTION. 
Don't go about asking for Sympathy directly or indirectly from people no matter your condition or challenge. 

Go for SOLUTION! That you are hurt, disappointed, depressed or what have you and everybody gathers to tell you Sorry or feels for you that is Sympathy. But with all that you are still far away from Solution.

Challenge people to give you Solution rather than Sympathy. Move people to give you Answers rather than pity. Instead of you to tell me Oh sorry or even feel very sorry for me in my challenge; I would prefer you ask me: 'Friend, have you tried this; or Why don't you do this?' This can produce Solution. The greatest effect of Sympathy is tears of self-pity but the greatest effect of Solution is tears of joy and breakthrough.
The greatest sign of self-defeat in any challenge is seeking for sympathy from everybody! 
Be strong and be of good courage. You are winning already. Welcome to your season of Celebration! It is well with you!

The Signs of the Attitude of Ingratitude


I promised in my last post to update you with:

THE SIGNS OF INGRATITUDE

What are the signs of the ATTITUDE of INGRATITUDE?
1. NOT RESPONDING QUICKLY WITH A 'THANK YOU' FOR GOOD DONE TO YOU: Keeping quiet or delaying to respond appreciatively to an act of kindness shown to you by anyone is the first sign of INGRATITUDE. And you cannot be too busy as not to have time to return Thanks as it is an urgent duty. And what is urgent should be treated as so.

2. A FEELING OF 'ENOUGH WAS NOT DONE': Have this at the back of your mind that your expectations should not be anybody's command, therefore, it should not be the right parameter to measure people's act of kindness or good gesture towards you.

The feeling of 'Enough was not done' by anybody is the trigger of Ingratitude and one of the bold signs. Whatever somebody has done for or to you no matter how little deserves appreciation. Better still, why don't you thank him for the little first; who knows if that could be the key to the much expected!

3. COMPLAINING ABOUT PEOPLE, THEIR ACTIONS AND INTENTIONS: There is no how you keep complaining about people, their actions and intentions that you will remember to be grateful.
No fault finder a person will ever be grateful. 
Stop judging people, their actions and intentions from your viewpoint. Moreover, stop reading meanings into people's decisions, actions and intentions as this can only produce Ingratitude. Leave people with their intentions always express appreciation to every little good done to you.

4. COMPARING ONE PERSON'S KINDNESS TO YOU WITH ANOTHER: Comparing one person's kindness to you with another is a sign of ingratitude. Every individual is an independent person and has different reasons or considerations for what he or she does.

Therefore it will not be fair on the part of anybody to compare the kindness of two people shown to him. Instead of you to compare two people's kindness shown you why not appreciate them personally and differently?

5. MAKING DISPARAGING AND DEROGATORY REMARKS ABOUT PEOPLE AND WHAT THEY DID FOR YOU: Making negative and unsavoury remarks about people and what they did for you or gave to you is a sign of ingratitude.

Anytime somebody extends good gestures to you may be in terms of gift; look beyond the material. See the heart and motive behind the gesture which could be love or an intention to bless.
Don't talk down on people and what they have done for you. It is not good.
6. BITTING THE FINGER THAT FED YOU: It is common saying that one should not bite the finger that fed him. I think it is a wise saying that forewarns the act of ingratitude. It is not gratitude to fight, discredit, criticize people who have made immense and sincere contributions to your upbringing, greatness, success or whatever you have become.

Remember, without them you couldn't have been there. They could be your parents, leaders, mentors, boss, benefactors, organizations, colleagues, etc.

Always appreciate people God has used to make inputs to your life and results. 
It is ingratitude to bite the finger that fed you.

7. TAKING UNDUE ADVANTAGE OF OPPORTUNITIES CREATED FOR YOU BY SOMEONE: Making effort to edge out somebody who gave you a certain opportunity in life is the height of ingratitude. When somebody starts regretting ever giving you an opportunity it is a sign that he has been badly hit by your ingratitude.

It manifest in different forms. Don't take advantage of people who opened certain doors for you even when the opportunity shows up. Before you do that ask the question 'If this were done to me will I be pleased?'

I believe I have kept my promise with these few things I have shared with you in this little piece. I will meet you again.

​The 7 P's That Can Make Your May



For certain, everyone is looking for progress, success, breakthrough, testimony and what have you. No doubt, this is God's plan for you. But it is important to know the Principles to follow in order to achieve this. In this short post, I want to quickly share The 7 P's that can make you have a great Month.

WHAT ARE THE 7 P's? 
To have a great May you need these P's:

1. PREPARATION: Preparation is key to any great achievement. Nobody achieves anything worthwhile without great preparation. I said sometime ago in the course of my teaching that 'Preparation is more important than the assignment itself.' How do I mean? 

Simple, it is the preparation that predicts the outcome of any assignment. Friend, the fact is that you are already in the Month of May just like the previous Months. But the question is how prepared are you for the month. Remember every month comes with its own challenges and struggles. 

Your ability to overcome these challenges is what announces your victory. However, without adequate preparation nobody is ready to win any contest or overcome any challenge. Sportsmen train, musicians and artists rehearse, students study and read, all to in preparation to succeed. What are your preparations for May?

2. PLANNING: Let me say this quickly, if success is your goal and great achievement your dream; there is no substitute for Planning. Nothing succeeds without a definite plan for it. I said in one of my training sessions that the definition of an Accident is an event that happened without planning for it. 

It follows therefore that anything you intend to achieve without planning for it is already an ACCIDENT. 
Do you know what? 

There can never be a Successful Accident. Or have you seen where an accident took place and it was said 'Oh thank God this was a very successful accident! Have you heard or seen that before! Take time to plan whatever you intend to do. I have said it that Hod does not pray as it were. Simply because He had nobody higher than Himself to depend on. Then how does He succeed in everything that He does? 
Simple, He plans everything He does. May I quickly say this. With no intention to undermine the power of prayer; praying without planning equals to failing without intending. Let me leave you with this: you can still fail praying without planning.

3. PRAYER: The third P that can make your May is Prayer. Prayer as simple as it sounds and looks is indispensable. Have you observed something that every religion of the world no matter the doctrine or philosophy believes in prayer irrespective of the object? 

No wonder it has been said that prayer is a universal language. A universal language in the sense that everybody speaks it and has a way he or she does that.

You cannot undermine the power of prayer! To understand the important place of prayer in human experience just look at Jesus prescription on prayer according to Luke 18: 1 '...that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;' (The King James Bible)
The only time prayer is not necessary is when God is not important. And the only man or woman who does not need prayer is the one who does not need God. I wonder who that kind of person is and where he or she lives!

I want to say here that to make it in the Month, Prayer must be a daily and regular personal exercise. Let me say quickly here everybody can be prayerful. I think the problem with prayer is the teaching and tradition a lot of so called 'Spiritual' people have surrounded it with. 

I have heard some people boast how they pray 4 to 5 hours everyday. Great! Some have even thought openly that if you cannot pray up to 1 hour everyday that you are not a Christian as if it was prayer that made you a Christian. Nobody was made a Christian or believer by prayer. You were made a Christian or believer by FAITH. Then as a believer or Christian you are commanded and expected to pray.

This kind of extremist teaching and position on prayer is what actually makes prayer frustrating and burdensome to many.

For all I care this kind of teaching is unfounded and not based on the Word of God. Prayer is a personal communication and relationship with God and should be personally arranged. Nobody is permitted to set general standard of prayer for anybody.

If you are personally called to the Ministry of prayer that you can spend hours in it thank God. But it is wrong to teach it as a standard. If prayer is going to God for personal fellowship, communion and supplication, the time spent in it should be determined by the individual involved. If you go to God in prayer and within 5 to 10 minutes you are done with the reason for which you went to Him; what stops you from coming out? And if at some other time it takes 1 hour or more to sought out the issues with Him why not?

Prayer is highly a personal thing. Don't enjoy boasting to people and making yourself look more spiritual than you are by giving the impression that you pray a lot. As a matter of fact, if you really pray a lot; you should not be the one to tell it. Let the results and people that have come in contact with the impact of your devotion say it.

I want to suggest something that can make you very prayerful and devotional. To start with what makes you prayerful? Jesus did not teach us that long hours in prayer is what makes us prayerful. He only said that men ought always to pray and not faint.

The word there that makes anyone prayerful is 'Always'. That simply means keep in touch with God no matter how short or brief you do it.
How can you do this? 
When you wake up in the morning and you spend 5 to 10 minutes appreciating God for Who He is, what He has done, what He has promised to do, what He is doing, what you expect Him to do according to His promises and even what He has not done which is subject to His plan and purpose; you have prayed.

And when you move into your bathroom for a shower you just thank Him. You are in your bedroom dressing up for work and you thank Him. You move into your car or riding in a train or bus and you just bowed your head and thank Him that is prayer. When you always do this, you are prayerful.

Please don't let anybody intimidate you with his or her story of 'burning bush' experience of long and desert prayers. If that is what works for him or her thank God for him. But let no person make light or condemn what works for you.

Follow this principle and discover how prayerful you will become. Wait a minute! Did you observe that a lot of people are afraid of prayer now because of how people have created boring and unscriptural standards?
It pays to pray! When you pray you depend on God. Make everything you do a matter of prayer no matter how short or long. 

Now you have known that prayer is no longer measured by the hours you spend but by your faith in God and obedience to call upon Him anytime, any day and anywhere; you can make the most of it.

In this month, God will go before you. He will fight for you and defend you. Whatever that need is in your life, family, business, marriage, health and finances He will meet it, in Jesus name. This month will be a great one for you!

I will continue with this message in my next post. Enjoy your month!

Keys To Unlock 2017



This Year your Success Story must be told. Good News you are among the people to be celebrated this year. Your dream is coming through. Your desire shall be delivered and above all, God's name shall be magnified because of you. I can't wait to join you in your Thanksgiving Celebration!

However, this Season I will be sharing with you the KEYS TO UNLOCK 2017. The Year 2017 is Pregnant with Possibilities. I may not know what has happened to you in the previous years, but I am pretty sure that 2017 is your Year of Incontestable Possibilities! I thought your Amen could have roared like Thunder? AMEN! Thank God it is in Capital letters!

KEYS TO UNLOCK YOUR 2017

KEY NO 1: DECISION: As simple as it sounds, that is the first step to realizing your 2017 dreams, goals or aspirations. Hear these principles are fundamental. Nothing happens to any individual basically in achieving a certain goal or attaining a pursuit without a personal decision. Bear in mind that you cannot achieve anything meaningful until you have decided to do so.

I discovered from the inspiration of God recently that there was no original creation known as: Satan, devil or demons. 

What do I mean? Check your Bible very well you will discover that God never created any being by name Satan, devil or demon.

God only created Lucifer, son of the morning who was perfect in beauty until something happened to him. In the same vein, God never created any demon or evil spirit. If this is true, the question then is how did this wicked beings called Satan, devil and demons come about?

ORIGIN OF SATAN, DEVIL, DEMON

God in his love and purpose created Lucifer, son of the morning who was perfect in beauty. But Lucifer one day according to Isaiah 14: 12-17 made a decision that changed him from Lucifer to Satan, devil. 

God also created Angels in his love and purpose to serve Him. But when the Angels with Lucifer in heaven saw the decision Lucifer made about one third of them also joined him to make same decision, and consequently were driven away together from heaven and they became demons. 
What made Lucifer to become Satan? His Decision. 
What made the Angels that followed him to become demons or evil spirits? The same Decision.

If one wrong decision could change the destiny and status of a Lucifer to Satan, Angels to demons; one right Decision you'll make this 2017 May, can change your entire status in life. 

  • A right decision can turn you from a sinner to a saint. 
  • It can turn you from a beggar to a giver, and 
  • A failure to a success. 
It is my prayer to God for you this year that you will not neglect or delay that Decision. But I think the first decision every wise man or woman is expected to make this day is to accept Jesus Christ into his/her life as Lord and personal saviour.

Remember, when the Prodigal son made that one Decision in his life to return to his Father, his story changed. I mean his status changed. 
If you can make that decision God is showing you or will be showing you through teachings, experience, counsel, revelation or information your story also will change in this 2017. 

I want to leave you with this question: 
  • what is the decision you are expected to make in your life this month? 
  • Could it be to leave a certain habit, group of persons, lifestyle, a particular business, place or even somebody? 
Find out for yourself and please do that quickly. You are lifted!
