“I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength” (Phil 4:11-13)
Contentment is defines as a state of happiness and satisfaction. It is true peace of mind. It is a dream come true! It is not a passive feeling of defeat. It is a great human achievement. Many want it. Few people have it. It is located in Christ alone!!! You need to pay the price by searching for it: thru Bible study and prayer; thru attending a good living church; thru humbly and faithfully serving God; by submitting to other Christians who are more spiritual than you! It is not an easy road. But it is possible!
This is my testimony: To the glory of God I have found this pearl of great value! I encourage you to do the same! Nothing compares with the treasure called contentment! It is a true spiritual promotion. It does not come to a crowd of people. It is a personal gain! Money cannot buy it and thieves cannot steal it. It is the wind beneath the wings of eagles, pushing them faster and farther than the best of ordinary birds. It is the crown of heroes! It is the holy mark of champions. To get it, you do not need to travel anywhere. You do not need money. Just start by giving your life to Christ and then enroll in the Holy Spirit course called ‘contentment’. You will never regret it!
There are many people who wonder why I am so happy in a country called Nigeria. There are so many troubles here. Most people here want to leave this place and go away, to ‘greener pastures’. The truth is that I am very happy with God, with myself, with my husband, with my ministry and with the people around me. None is perfect. I am not perfect. But in the midst of it all, I have found Christ to be the most trusted Friend, Savior and Lord. His presence in my heart has changed the dry pastures to be the greenest of all. I do not have to travel to see how green other fields are. My own little pasture, in Effurun-Warri, is getting so green, so fresh, so soft and nutritious, that my spirit prospers and lacks nothing of value. Spiritually speaking, I am putting on weight daily. In this matter of satisfaction and contentment I can enter into any competition with the rich and famous, with the strong and mighty. I know that I will win! (Naija people I hail you-oo…Warri no de carry last!)
Contentment is a course in the higher levels of the university of the Holy Spirit. Many have failed it. This is because they are not focused. Many Christians struggle with comparison, covetousness and complaining. But I saw that the Apostle Paul was content in plenty and in want. God did not shield him from pains! He suffered much. He was rejected, beaten, in prison and experienced shipwreck. What was Paul’s secret and how do we cultivate contentment in our lives? I discovered that contentment has nothing to do with my circumstances. But it has to do with the state of my heart. I also discovered that contentment cannot be found outside Christ. Only a child of God can truly be content. Contentment is a spiritual achievement more than I call it a gift.
For example, In the past: I may have all good things I wish for: My husband is nice to me, my children behave well, my weight is under control, I have money to buy what I want… and still… There is a troubling anxiety that these blessings will soon disappear… and troubles will replace them… The secret doubting shameful fear of tomorrow will not allow me to be happy today… contentment was missing. I saw that the great Apostle Paul had to ‘learn the secret of contentment’. Me too I decided to learn it! After failing some exams, I finally got it! That is why I encourage you to do the same! Glory to God!
In Contentment we place our total heart trust not in ourselves, not in people, not in money, but in our good and sovereign God. God’s love for His people is unchanging, and He is using every detail of our lives to shape and fashion us into the image of Jesus Christ. As we look back to the cross of Christ and look forward to the hope of heaven, we will discover that ultimate contentment is found in Him alone! Let’s worship Jesus Christ! What a Savior! What a Mighty God we serve! Angels bow before Him! Heaven and earth adore Him! What a mighty God we serve! Hallelujah!

Dear child of God, Listen to me! I am a medical doctor, a pastor and married to a pastor! I am 64 years old. I am old enough to counsel you as a mother. “Flee fornication!” (1Cor 6:18). In Greek, the word ‘flee’ means to escape a predator, to run away for your dear life until to vanish! See fornication as a criminal, ready to kill your body, soul and spirit! Never admire or envy fornicators, no matter how rich and famous they are! No matter how happy they seem! Fornication is suicide! Fornicators are waiting on the death row!

As it is with sickness, so it is with fornication: prevention is better than cure! Fornication is a spiritual problem more than a sexual one. It is emotionally addictive! Fornication and adultery is like a drug! The more you commit sexual sin, the more you will feel we need it, the easier it will be to do it, and the harder it will be to stop. “Whether you have been losing the battle or simply want to prepare for war, here are four proven ways to pursue purity: 1. Flee temptation. 2. Consider the future. 3. Enjoy your spouse. 4. Remember God is watching!” (Sam Allbery)

Lastly, if you are already living in sexual sin, there is no power outside the Holy Spirit who can deliver you! Give or re-surrender your life to the Lord Jesus Christ! Why suffer in silence? Why do you want to die an untimely death? Pray! Be free! I also pray for everyone who reads this letter and needs help! Be free in Jesus name! Come to the Cross! Jesus died for you! Jesus loves you! God bless you!


“The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever” (Psalm 23)

Jehovah Rohi shepherds the sheep that never wants anything outside Christ and His provision, totally satisfied; utterly content; there is no desire to change position, just to mature in this place of fulfillment. Believers are called sheep. Believers are never called dogs, horses or swine. Sheep are timid, foolish, slow, defenseless, totally lack the home instinct (if they are lost they can never find their way home). They depend totally on their Shepherd for their very life.

The promises of Psalm 23!
• I shall not want: Contentment: highest spiritual achievement
• He makes me lie down: Sheep cannot lie down if they are afraid of enemies, hungry or sick. The shepherd provides protection, food, and medicine so that they can rest.
• He leads me beside the still waters: The Shepherd locates clean springs of the water of life (dirty religious water makes them sick).
• He restores my soul: If sheep fall upside down they can’t get back on their feet again on their own. They will stay like that until they die of thirst or wild animals kill them. The Shepherd counts them, if anyone is missing it may be that it fell and needs rescuing.
• He leads me in the paths: Sheep need to be on the move. If they stay too long in the same area they will over graze and destroy the roots of the grass leaving the area barren. The Shepherd gently pushes me to ‘walk in the Spirit.’
• Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death: Through the valley the flocks go gently to the top of the mountain in the summer time. Through trials I grow and mature to a higher level of faith
• Your rod and your staff they comfort me: The rod is a weapon, like a police baton or a gun to attack the wild animals. The staff is for the Shepherd to lean on and to use it to bring life the tired lambs. Together they represent the Word and the Spirit.

In Christ I declare:
Jehovah is my Shepherd. Jesus is my good shepherd (Jn 10:11). The Shepherd is the Manager of my daily life. In Jesus’ name, Amen!

Following Shepherd

She suddenly became rich and famous thru the movie Black Panther. But the money and the fame did not bring happiness to her. She said that she battled with depression. “I was in the dark going through so many bad things, when the world didn’t know about Shuri and Letitia and whatever is happening now.” After the movie, she took a break from acting in 2015. She started searching for the truth, to find meaning for her life. She started attending the London’s actors Bible study.

During an interview she said: “I needed to take a break from acting, because I really idolized it. So I came off from it and I went on a journey to discover my relationship with God, and I became a (born again) Christian”. To God be all the glory!

“I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. And when I saw her, I marveled with great amazement… And I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues… Rejoice over her, O heaven, and you holy apostles and prophets, for God has avenged you on her!” (Rev 17:6; 18:4, 20)
There is a high rank evil spirit called ‘the queen of heaven’ or ‘the spirits of Jezebel.’ This is a religious stronghold in many churches. It deceives men to live in a false confidence of salvation. For as long as you are ignorant of the existence and the strategy of this evil spirit, you cannot have peace and you cannot prosper. Even if you go to church, give offerings, pay your tithes, pray and fast, you still remain under her spell and wicked bondage. What is the solution?
First of all pray that the Holy Spirit opens your eyes to see the root of your problems. The only solution is repentance and deliverance. Come back to the Cross of Christ, back to the simplicity and purity of Christ, radically removing all forms of deception and religious entertainment in your worship. By the power of the Holy Spirit, you are to identify, repent and renounce all hypocrisy and wickedness from the heart. Do not be sorry for the devil! Do not be sorry for any idol! Destroy anything that competes with God in your heart! No man involved in the sin of idolatry can ever prosper. Sooner or later, the mercy of God, His covering over that person is removed, leaving him exposed and vulnerable to the devil to attack and defeat. The curses of disobedience and rebellion are too many: chronic, often incurable sicknesses, both mental and physical; anxiety and confusion; unhappy marriages that end in divorce, wayward children, bondage, failure, frustration with work, general unhappiness and restlessness all year round (Read Deuteronomy 28). Every form of religious deception and entertainment in the church is the product of false doctrines of devils, and the worship of the so called ‘queen of heaven.’ Every form of sexual immorality in the church is a form of worship of this wicked demon. That is why sexual immorality among the Christians is so difficult to defeat, because it is not just a sexual addiction but a stronghold of false worship and idolatry.
Listen: Jezebel is a wicked power of darkness, a religious demon who rules in the heavenly realms. You need to prepare your mind for battle. She hinders prayers, intercession, and the true worship of God; she kills the prophets and sheds innocent blood. She desires to have your heart so that you may worship her. She hates God and wants to compete with Him in your heart. The Bible calls her a Criminal and the Mother of all spiritual prostitutes; those are the ones that forsake God to give themselves to idolatry. She is over-confident of her reign over the bodies and souls of men. She boasts of her eternal throne. She is deceived and many follow her in her deception. But the hour of judgment has come!!! The proud ‘queen’ who claimed heaven for herself has been judged by the True King of Heaven. We are to rejoice that her reign has ended and her victims are set free (Rev 17-19). The Holy Spirit has to open your eyes to see the victory of the Lamb and the vision of true worship in the church. Then believers shall be mature, they shall grow in the grace and in knowledge of Jesus Christ, producing fruits for the glory of God! Hallelujah!
In Christ I declare:
I am a child of God! I am born again and Spirit filled! I hate and reject sin and any form of idolatry! Jesus died on the Cross to set me free from the bondage of empty religion! I have eternal life! I totally destroy the stronghold of Jezebel in my life, my home and my church! Let all her victims and prisoners be free! I rejoice in the victory of the Lamb! I will forever worship only the King of Kings! In Jesus’ name, Amen!
FH 13


“When He was alone, the Twelve and the others around him asked Him about the parables. He told them, “The secret of the kingdom of God has been given to you. But to those on the outside everything is said in parables so that, they may be ever seeing but never perceiving, and ever hearing but never understanding; otherwise they might turn and be forgiven!” (Mk 4:10-12)
There are only two groups of people in this world:
• The insiders (the children of God). They see and perceive; they hear and understand (appreciate the value and enjoy the Word). Jesus speaks to them and gives them the secrets of the kingdom, the deep revelation of His Person. They are forgiven and free from their sins. They are saved!
• The outsiders (religious unbelievers). They see but lack spiritual perception; they hear but lack understanding (they do not appreciate the value and do not enjoy the Word). Jesus speaks to them in parables, veiled truth, protected from the eyes of the mockers. They are not forgiven and still live in sin. They are not saved!
Questions: Why do you stay outside the door? Are you not tired of deceiving yourself and others? Why not truly repent of sins and come inside. There is forgiveness in the name of Jesus!
In Christ I declare:
I am a child of God! The Holy Spirit leads me to the all truth! The anointing of the Holy Spirit teaches me all things! The secrets of the Kingdom of God belong to me and to my descendants forever that we may obey the Word of God! I dwell inside, under the shadow of the Almighty God! In Jesus’ name, Amen!


“Woe to them! For they have gone in the way of Cain, have run greedily in the error of Balaam for profit… These are spots in your love feasts… wandering stars for whom is reserved the blackness of darkness forever” (Jude 1:11-13)
Balaam was a false prophet. He loved the wages of unrighteousness. He loved the devil’s ‘ministry,’ his fame and his money. He could not receive money through cursing the people of God directly because ‘no one can curse whom God had blessed’. But because of his love for ‘bad’ money, he was flexible enough to accept another ‘contract’ from the devil; that of counseling. Balaam was paid as a ‘Consultant on occult!’ He counseled Balak on the way to ‘manipulate’ God to curse His children by Himself. Balaam was not paid for cursing but he was paid for counseling.
THE ENEMY CORRUPTS WHAT HE CANNOT CONTROL!!! This is how the devil thinks: ‘If I cannot marry you, I will poison you!”. Once the devil is a murderer. He is merciless. If he is able to corrupt your heart, you will destroy yourself from inside out! The devil and his agents get rich when we are careless with our heart. He often corrupts us through the internet, bad movies, and bad friends. Learn how to do spiritual warfare! Watch and pray! Protect your eyes, heart and mind! Love spiritual purity! Put on the ‘filter’ of the Holy Spirit! Do not give the devil a foothold! Submit to God! Reject the devil with prayers and fasting! He will run away from you! He is a enemy but a defeated enemy! Fear not! Jesus is Lord! Holy Ghost is Lord!
In Christ I declare:
I shall keep my heart pure! I separate myself from anything that defiles my body soul and spirit! I reject the evil spirit of religion and false prophecy! I shall be lead only by the Holy Spirit!
In Jesus’ name, Amen!


“For God is not unjust. He will not forget how hard you have worked for Him and how you have shown your love to Him by caring for other believers, as you still do” (Heb 6:10)
I met many people who work as ‘junior staff’ in good companies. When they are promoted to be ‘senior staff’ they hate it. At the beginning I did not understand their complains. I did not know that they prefer to be paid per hour and have no commitment to the company’s vision. They only wanted money and not responsibility! They sold their sweat for cash and kept their heart! They envied the leaders but they refused to pay the price for leadership! Listen to the words of Jesus: “When they see the wolf coming (danger), the hired workers run away because they don’t care about the sheep… A slave (a hireling) is not a permanent member of the family, but a son is part of the family forever.” (Jn 8:35; 10: 12,13)
Dear Child of God, reject the evil spirit of a hireling! Hate and reject Mamon! Freely, humbly and faithfully love, serve and worship God, who is your everlasting Father in heaven. Why? Because He alone is worthy of your sacrifice! Do it as a Son and not as a slave. When worshiping God do not remember money. Forget about your ‘benefits’! God has promised not to ignore your sacrifice and not to forget your labor of love. In His time, He will reward you much more than your accountant friend has cancelled you to wish for. Trust God with all your heart! Trust God in all things, including your reward! Deliver yourself from the evil religious spirit of a hireling! You are a son! God’s DNA is imparted in your spirit. Worship the Lord!

‘EL ANAH ESH’ (‘The God that answers by fire’)

“Then you call on the name of your god and I will call on the name of the Lord (Jehovah): The God that answers by fire (El Anah Esh) – He is God!” (1Kg 18:24)
‘El’ is the short form of Elohim (the Creator of heaven and earth). ‘Anah’ – means to answer, to testify, to witness, to shout, to sing, to declare. And ‘Esh’ means fire, heat, burning. Fire is a symbol of God. There are two types of fire: The fire we should desire as power for ministry and the fire we should fear and run from!
I> The fire that we should desire: it falls from heaven upon the obedient believer and His sacrifice upon the proper altar. The fire means that God has accepted your sacrifice and labor. It is the stamp and seal of heaven. It is the blessing of God, the anointing upon your ministry. It is the fire of grace and power.
Example 1: The fire fell upon the prepared sacrifice done by Aaron and his sons. It was on the first day of their ministry and it was the confirmation of God’s approval (Lev 9).
Lesson: Do not start ministry without the fire of God! (Religious) flesh prof-its nothing!
Example 2: Jesus is the Baptizer with the Holy Spirit and fire (Mat 3:11). The fire of God is the only element that can change your heart forever. It brings the fear of God and purifies it for true worship.
Lesson: Desire the deep revelation and the fullness of the Spirit. Do not be satisfied with superficial ‘Christianity.’
Example 3: The Pentecost (Acts 2). Fire was seen upon their heads. It changed them forever from cowards to bold preachers. Their words combined with the utterance of the Spirit (fire on the tongue) created a force that none could resist. Utterance means you speak fewer words, loaded with power to express deep things of the Spirit and to proclaim the wonders of God. Pray for the radical change on your tongue to be energized by the fire of heaven.
II> The fire we should run from: it is the fire of the wrath of God and His judgment on sin. Uzzah touched the Ark and died (2 Sam 6:6, 7). Nadab and Abihu, offered unauthorized (man- made) fire in worship to God and they died on the spot (Lev 10). Un-confessed sin is the fuel that can ignite the fire of God producing sin unto death! Be careful!
Lesson: Be dead to sin before you pray for anointing and power in ministry! Be like the burning bush: hot with passion for Jesus but never consumed! This is the secret of genuine successful ministry.
In Christ I declare:
I no longer live, but it is Christ who lives in me, doing His work by the pow-er of the Holy Spirit! May Pentecost happen to me! May I burn with passion for Jesus! In Jesus’ name, Amen!

“For the Word that God speaks is alive and full of power (making it active, operative, energizing and effective); it is sharper than any two edged sword, penetrating… between joints and marrow (of the deepest parts of our nature) exposing and sifting and analyzing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart” (Heb 4: 12, AMP)
Just like the pregnancy, like the hidden power of life within the womb, the Word of God ingested works without interruptions until it pleases God to behold the final masterpiece. There is Holy activity in my spirit. No rest until there is rest. Peace has a crown and smiles like a queen. Truth is a friend, a father and a judge. Like a bird flies away, leaving behind the sad, sad cage, so yesterday is quietly put to rest. Tomorrow is a sketch of hope’s song. Today is my gift, to fill with God’s presence until the overflow expands it to be more than twenty four hours. There is work going on inside of me. None can stop it and none can steal it. I love how God is good to me. His goodness is power that changes me, beholding His glory!
In Christ I declare:
I am a child of God! I am saved by the Blood of the Lamb, by the Grace of the King of Kings! I trust the Word of God! Even when I do not see much ahead, His Word is still the unquenchable light at my feet! I keep my eyes fixed on Jesus! I gaze long on the eternal things of God’s invisible Kingdom! I only glance at the visible things of this world, for they are temporary! I break any addiction with the infatuation with the material things! I love the Word of God! I trust the Word of God! In all circumstances, in Spirit and in Truth, I will worship God! This is my pledge!
In Jesus’ name,

“And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us” (Ac 17:26, 27)

Today, the people of Nigeria were to vote to elect their president. But the elections were postponed. Many are angry, frustrated and dis-appointed. I am sorry about that. I cannot change the events. But what I can do, I do! I pray for Nigeria… I pray for revival, for God’s favor and healing in this land. I pray for a fresh download of living hope and supernatural peace for the people living in Nigeria! I pray for godly wise leadership! I believe that God answers prayers! God never fails!

I am a foreigner (better said an ‘oyibo’) living in Nigeria since 1980. I did not choose this country. I came here as a proud unbeliever. So many things have changed since then… Let me count just few blessings that will forever connect me with Nigeria: My husband of 45 years is a Nigerian. I became saved in Warri, Nigeria. My husband and I had a very successful private hospital here in Warri, Nigeria. We made money and fame here in Nigeria! Our last baby, Jemine, was born In Effurun, Nigeria. Our three children grew up and went to school here in Nigeria. For a time we went to live in America. It pleased God to send my husband and I back to this land to start a church for His glory and for the good of the people here. This is how Father’s House Bible Church, Effurun – Warri was ‘born’ in March 2000. My husband and I are pastors in full time ministry here in Nigeria. In Nigeria I learned a new language called ‘pidgin English’. I am very happy with that!

Why I am saying all these things? Every day, and especially in times of trial, I encourage myself in the Lord! I remind myself of what I have and not what I’ve lost! Therefore: No matter how ‘bad’ Nigeria is or becomes in the future, I can never deny the wonderful blessing this country has been to me and mine. I know that God created the whole universe. There are 195 countries in this world today. Out of them all, God ‘picked’ Nigeria for me!!! Can you imagine that? It may be hard to believe but it is the truth! And God never makes mistakes!

Did you know that not only did God create each one of us but He put us in this world in these times and in a particular place of His choosing? None of this is by chance or error. We may not be happy about God’s choice of timing or place. After all, the times are troubled and the world (some places in particular) is shaky.

There is little we can do about living in these times. We can’t re-invent ourselves in another time. However, God gave us a free will and a life to live the way we choose. So we can move about for whatever reasons we consider valid. We can move to a place we believe will offer us more money, greater security or a better life-style. But rather than being unhappy or even fearful about where we are and casting around for other options, perhaps we should be praying: “Father, You have placed me here at this time. How do You want to use me? How can I be available to You so that You can work out Your purposes in this place?”

So, in an increasingly insecure world, these words of Scripture serve to root and ground us. They provide us with the security of knowing that we are where we are because that’s what God has ordained, and to date He has not shown us otherwise.

Let’s pray: “Abba Father, it’s not a mistake that I am living in insecure times, in a place that’s difficult and sometimes frightening. Please help me draw my security from You and not from the place where I live. Show me how I can be Your instrument of peace and healing here and now, how I can shine with Your love and joy and how I can share the good news of who You are with those around me. Father God, please I remind You to bless all the people living in Nigeria! We vow to give You all the glory! In Jesus’ name! Amen!”

“How is your beloved better than others, most beautiful of women?” (SS 5:9)
Next month, my husband and I, will be married for 45 years! We married as unbelievers. God’s grace saved our souls and also our marriage. Both of us are medical doctors by profession and now in full time ministry. The older I get, the more I appreciate my husband’s character. Without fear and without shame, I can boast about my God and I also can boast about my husband. Below is a partial list of my husband’s qualities, blessings that I have discovered over the years. According to the Word of God, and by the grace of God, my husband is ‘better than others’.
He is:
*A true man of God!
*A wonderful husband to me, a wonderful father and a grandfather!
*Loving, generous, compassionate and kind!
*Bold for God. He does not take the easy path because of fear. He confronts difficult situations like a soldier.
*Perseveres until he achieves results. He does not get tired in the middle of the problems!
*Honest, truthful and open; he does not lie, steal or cheat!
*Courageous, doing what is right even in the presence of rejection or danger!
*Willing to sacrifice himself and his money for the work of God and helping others!
*Controls himself; he stays calm under provocation, temptation or stress!
*Just and fair; he does not discriminate!
*Good citizen; he abides by the laws of the country!
*Spirit of excellence; he does no compromise his conscience; he does his best and he is happy with his work!
*Keeps his promises; is dependable and trustworthy; he hates to disappoint others!
*Respects others; he honors their rights, dignity and freedom! Hates to hurt them unnecessarily!
*Responsible; he does not shift blame on others!
*Patient; he knows that good things take time to achieve! He is willing to wait.
*Forgiving; he is able to leave hurtful things behind; does not seek revenge! (He forgets my mistakes)
*Peace Maker; he is able to talk things without being violent!
*Very good teacher. Most of the things about life in Nigeria I have learned from him directly!
*Encourager. He encourages me to fulfill God’s plan for my life, to do ministry.
*Lover. He loves me with words and deeds when we are alone and he declares his love for me in public.
And so on… And so on …
To God be all the glory!
Now you know one of the secrets of our happy and strong marriage! Dear sister, if you are a married woman, boast about your husband too! I will rejoice with you! But don’t forget to give God all the glory! He who has ears to hear, let him (her) hear! May God grant you the blessing of a wonderful marriage! In Jesus name, amen!

“The liberal soul shall be made fat… A generous person will prosper, and anyone who gives water will receive a flood in return… whoever refreshes others will be refreshed” (PV 11:25)
God promises that if you practice generosity you shall become (spiritually) fat! (I was trying to diet and lose some weight when I saw this scripture…I am joking…). The word ‘fat’ means to be ‘oily’, to be prosperous in all things and anointed for ministry!
In Hebrew the word ‘liberal’ means to be generous and noble. In the past people believed that kings were chosen by God. The ordinary people expected their rulers to behave like God. One of the royal attributes was to be kind and generous with their resources. Low class people were seen as stingy and wicked. Generosity of spirit was valued as a royal quality. This generosity is not only about money. It is an attitude of life. You can be generous with your time, emotions, words of encouragement and your desire to help others. Spiritually speaking, a generous person is someone who is willing to be a channel of blessing, to be used by God to bless others. God promised to greatly bless such a willing person!
A greedy man sees generosity as a waste of resources. He is afraid that generosity will lead to poverty. But it is not so! A greedy man is a foolish man! The Bible encourages us to be noble and generous; investing in the work of God and helping others. Why? The first reason is because God is the most generous Person in the universe! God is the Original Giver! And we must be like God! The second reason is that generosity really works! It is a good business! This is God’s Law: if you plant mercy, help, kindness and encouragement into the lives of others, you shall have a harvest of the same. The giver is blessed and the receiver is blessed! If you are generous, people are attracted to you. Nobody likes a greedy man.
This is a good practical advice: If you are lonely or you desire to be married, then be generous in your attitude to others. Soon, you will become a spiritual ‘magnet’. This is another of God’s laws: If you sow sparingly you shall reap sparingly. If you sow generously, you shall reap generously (2Cor 9:6). By your present sacrificially planting, you dictate the size of your harvest in the future!
This is my testimony: as an unbeliever I was a selfish and greedy coward. I was afraid to share. I was afraid to become poor. I was afraid to be cheated by others. Things changed after I became saved. I saw that God sent His Son to die for me, to be my Savior. There is no greater sacrifice than that! I also saw that my Lord Jesus Christ went to the Cross for me and by His death He paid all my debt of sin. I was overwhelmed by this most generous God. I wanted to be like Him! I wanted to be free to come into His presence and worship Him! I prayed and was filled with His generous Spirit. Little by little I started practicing generosity in every way I could. I gave to the people not just money but especially my heart. I gave them my best prayers and my most ‘expensive’ sermons. Little by little, my heart became free and I started rejoicing in this adventure of giving! Then I started to reap from my sowing! This life style became a flood of blessings to me! Now, at the hour of my need, I testify that there are so many people who pray for me, encourage me and refresh me. I testify that the Word of God is true! God is faithful to His Word!
Child of God, you are a royal spiritual priesthood! Behave like one! Be a generous and noble soul! Better said, be like Jesus! Your reward will be great on earth and also in heaven! Be filled with the Holy Spirit! Start by praising God today for revealing the truth to you! Freely you have received! Freely give to others! In Christ I declare  (un-apologetically and unashamedly) that I am fat, favored and free! I am risen, refreshed and revived! Hallelujah!


A daughter in Christ, sent me this note. For many years she lived in fear of bad news, poverty and untimely death. She is happily married and mother of three beautiful children. As you read her words, allow the Holy Spirit to minister to you…The Bible says: ‘Rejoice with them who rejoice” (Rom 12:15). By doing that you identify with her testimony and you shall receive the same. For the Spirit is One! This testimony is given to the glory of God, to the shame of the devil who has lost again, and for the encouragement of other children of God! (If you want to encourage her she will read your comments on fb). Please observe that our God blesses with more than expected help and provision! He is the God of ‘More than Enough’. Praise the Lord!

“Hello mum it’s exactly a month you prayed for me, our God is ever faithful, never failing.. my testimony is.. God has not only deliver me from spirit of fear and anger but He has bless my husband with a new job which is better than the previous job I told you that he lost it two weeks ago.

The children and I are happy Mum even though am too Shy to speak to you face to face, I wish to feel your warm embrace…Hmmmmmm… It’s a privilege to be a child of God and know am no longer a slave to fear. I give God all the glory.. Thank you mummy for being for your children and always interceding God bless you Malia!”

This is my song….
“If I have ten thousand tongue
Still won’t be enough
Narakele mo…….”

“Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away. Behold, the new has come!” (2Cor 5:17)
A daughter in Christ sent me this note. She started attending our church not too long ago. She has been religious for many years. She is a successful woman by any standard, what people here call ‘rich woman’. She is happily married, a loving mother, a successful professional woman. But according to her, she was not serious with God. In the past, she was ‘playing church’. It is sad that in many churches, the wealthy people, who give big offerings, they are regarded with a special honor. Because of that, they can hide behind their tithes and offerings and pretend that they are very spiritual. Pastor and congregation, for the sake of money, are willing to be deceived. That is so sad…When she came to Father’s House, she finally had rest for her soul. Nobody was interested in her fashion sense, the type of car she is driving or in the millions in her account. In our church, the offerings are given in secret as the Bible commands. God knows! No need to be proud! This sister finally came to the Cross. Unlike the rich young ruler, she came to Jesus and she stayed! May her testimony bless you! Glory of God!
“God bless you Malia, I can never ever appreciate you enuf, for persevering for me. For taking the challenge and pains to run this race that we are all benefiting from. I am so far from arriving but waking up everyday knowing I will get there soon. I am been transformed daily and pushing hard to be a better me. The best wife I can be. The best daughter, Boss, subordinate. Just too busy trying to reach the mark that nothing counts…. is wonderful. Believe me my mum, I am not even bothered about money, promotion, kids, the things I use to be anxious over anymore. But guess what? To my surprise, these blessings just role in with no struggle. I just got promoted, financially blessed on all sides. I have a more loving and caring (I mean really attentive) husband that care about my feelings. And guess what? These are things I don’t even care about anymore. God can never lie. He says what He means and He means what He says. Many years ago He said to me: “go to Father’s house where women don’t suffer”. Right now I ain’t suffering. I wake up with joy each day.
Ma, I want to tell you that I am not your usual daughter. I grew up in the streets. I was not brought up but just grew up with none of those with perfect upbringing and good background. But He has always been my God. I should be a cleaner, a security women or just a market woman but He always makes me head. As a child my parents could not afford to buy uniform for me. I grew up in the slump. I was the girl that even the poor people refer to as poor. Sometime, it’s overwhelming because I feel I don’t deserve it and I let my background and my bitter past get a better judgement of me. But guess what? Jesus always pulls me out and reminds me I am fearfully and wonderfully made, I, … a bush girl is ROYAL PRIESTHOOD!!!! Hahahahaha!!! Me royal??? Me was worth His blood???? Hmmmmmm!!!! It’s a privilege to be call His own. I am learning how to bow down and worship the Lord! There is none like Him!
Hmmmm!!!! If u know my story, then u will understand my heart for God!!! My life can only be God!!! No explanation!!! Mum, u will never understand ma. Thank you ma.
Mum!!! Even in my grave, my bones, my dust will worship this God!!!!! He is just too good!!! Too partial with me. One day I will go to where I was born and where I grew up and snap some pics. I will show you… so that you understand me better… from where I come from… I know my place without God, so I can’t even think of any life without Him. And now, I just crave more and more for him and being the right atmosphere, under great mentors… u understands why my joy is so unspeakable ma…
Sorry to take ur time this morning ma, at times I just what to be on top of a mountain and scream His praises so loud!!!! Thank you ma!!!! Your daughter…”

“Now Joseph’s brothers saw him in the distance, and before he arrived, they plotted to kill him. “Here comes that dreamer!” they said to one another. “Come now, let us kill him and throw him into one of the pits. We can say that a vicious animal has devoured him. Then we shall see what becomes of his dreams! .. Although Joseph recognized his brothers, they did not recognize him. Joseph remembered his dreams about them and said, “You are spies! You have come to see if our land is vulnerable.” (Gen 39:18-20; 42:8, 9)

Dear Child of God, Read the story of Joseph again! The world (even the religious world) hates and try to kill true dreamers! But the secret of overcoming dreamers is that God is with them! God’s favor is on them. Nobody can destroy that! They do not only survive the attacks of dream haters, but they live to gloriously fulfill their dream and to tell the story! Even if you give up on your dream, your dream does not give up on you! You are married to your dream. Forever! Hold on to your dream! In God’s time, by God’s grace and power, for God’s glory alone, your dream will come to pass! Be encouraged today!


“These are they before the throne of God and serve Him day and night… NEVER AGAIN will they hunger; NEVER AGAIN will they thirst… For the Lamb at the center of the Throne is their Shepherd” (Rev 7:15-17)
The point of no return is the point in a course of an action from where going back is impossible. It is the point from where one must continue on the current course of action because reversal is physically impossible, prohibitively expensive or dangerous. It is defined as a particular irreversible action (ex. setting off an explosion or signing a contract). The point of no return is also the stage at which it is no longer possible to stop what you are doing and when its effects can no longer be avoided or prevented. For pilots, it is a technical term in air navigation referring to the point on a flight at which, due to fuel consumption, a plane is no longer capable of returning to the airport it took off from.
Spiritually speaking, identifying with Christ at the Cross is truly a point of no return. Once you surrender your life to Christ, you can never claim ignorance again. From that moment on, you are either an obedient believer, with blessings following, or you are a traitor to His Name. Once you enter the palace of the King, to join in His celebration, you will either be robed in His Garment of righteousness or you will be arrested as a spy. Lacking His cover of grace, you shall be bound by His law and thrown into the utter darkness of the palace’ prison.
Once Oprah kissed Naomi goodbye, she went back to her people and to her gods, never to touch the Promised Land. Once you commit adultery, the mystery of your marriage suffers a mortal blow, never to be the same again. Once the high priest enters beyond the veil into the Holy of Holies, He will either meet with God and be blessed or he will die. Breaking a covenant is a point of no return. The consequences, the curses of disobedience take effect, until the mercy of God intervenes; it is beyond anything man can decide. Physical death is the greatest point of no return. An unbeliever goes to hell. No prayer, no mercy can ever be applied. The believer goes to heaven, to worship and serve His Lord forever. If you claim to be a believer, you should desire to willingly pay the price and come to this invisible point of no return. The Holy Spirit will seal your heart. You must witness a radical change, from which it is easier to die and go to heaven, than to go back to the world! Be a radical Christian possessing the assurance of your eternal salvation!
In Christ I declare:
I aim for perfection, for spiritual maturity! I obey the Word of God and faithfully serve Him! I press on, through the crowd! I establish my gains; I add to them; I invest my life into the needs of others! I experience the power of the Cross, by the Holy Spirit! Christ has circumcised my heart! I say with my Lord on the Cross: “It is finished!” Singing and prophesying: “Good by world! I am no longer with you! Good by pleasure of sin! I died to you!” Jesus Christ is the Shepherd of my soul, my Savior and my Lord! In Jesus’ name, Amen!
all to Thee


I never said that I would give you silver or gold
Or that you would never feel the fire or shiver in the cold
But I did say you’d never walk through this world alone
And I did say, don’t make this world your home!
I never said that fear wouldn’t find you in the night
Or that loneliness was something you’d never have to fight
But I did say I’d be right there by your side
And I did say I’ll always help you fight!
‘Cause you know I made a promise that I intend to keep
My grace will be sufficient in every time of need
And My love will be the anchor that you can hold onto
This is the promise, this is the promise I made to you!
I never said that friends would never turn their backs on you
Or that the world around you wouldn’t see you as a fool
But I did say like Me you’ll surely be despised
And I did say My ways confound the wise!
I didn’t say you’d never taste the bitter kiss of death
Or have to walk through chilly Jordan to enter into rest
But I did say I’d be waiting right on the other side
And I did say I’ll dry every tear you cry!
‘Cause you know I made a promise that I’ve prepared a place
And some day sooner than you think you’ll see Me face to face
And you’ll sing with the angels and a countless multitude
This is the promise, this is the promise I’ve made to you!
So just keep on walking, don’t turn to the left or right
And in the midst of darkness, let this be your light
That hell can’t separate us and you’re gonna make it through
This is the promise, this is the promise I have made to you!!!
(The Martins)
Jesus promise
