FRANKLIN GRAHAM: GOD SHOWED UP ON NOV. 8

Did God show up? In watching the news after the election, the secular media keep asking “How did this happen?” “What went wrong?” “How did we miss this?” Some are in shock. Political pundits are stunned. Many thought the Trump/Pence ticket didn’t have a chance. None of them understand the God-factor. Hundreds of thousands of Christians from across the United States have been praying. This year they came out to every state capitol to pray for this election and for the future of America. Prayer groups were started. Families prayed.…

BE PASSIONATE

Good day good people. Last week must have been a great and rewarding one. I need to ask you; are you working on your plans? You must work your plans daily. It is the only way. The Bible says “show me a man diligent in his ways, he will not dine with mere men but with Kings.” I trust you have a goal that you are daily working towards. If you have no goal or some destination you are working towards, kindly take time to set some goals for your…

DEFEATING GENERATIONAL BITTERNESS

If you’re still holding on to resentment, then someone is controlling you. Have you ever said, “You make me so mad”? What you’re admitting at that point is, “You are controlling me.” The only way you get this person out of your mind and heart is to heal it with grace—God’s grace. Hebrews 12:15 says, ” … watching diligently so that no one falls short of the grace of God, lest any root of bitterness spring up to cause trouble, and many become defiled by it“ (MEV). Have you ever known a…

CLINTON’S TRIUMPH AND TRUMP’S SUDDEN HARD LUCK: A Cocktail

You could hear the largely huge sighs of relief from across the oceans, all the way from God’s own country and across many hitherto ponderinworld super nations, if you had cared enough to momentarily stay still and pay heed. Hillary Clinton just won the US Democrats’ presidential nomination. A first by any US woman in history, against a thoroughly loquacious, self-assured, reckless talking, and openly racist Republican Presidential candidate, billionaire Donald Trump. Such stiff attributions? Not me. Donald had it all carved by himself, and for himself! I am not…

THE CROSS & THE CROSSROADS: Excerpt from the STATE OF THE CHURCH REPORT NIGERIA 2016 by Alder Consulting

Recent events in the Church have generated social fervour about the lifestyles of men of the robe and the governance structure of the Church in Nigeria, in particular the Pentecostal hue. This is as expected because the funding profile of the Church is primarily derived from contributions from congregants. There is a lot of angst out there because Nigerians are experiencing economic hardship. This provides some of the context for the public backlash. However we risk throwing out the baby with the bath water if our passion becomes a raging…

THE 7 DEMONS THAT MAY BE ATTACKING YOUR CHURCH

We have explored many of the ways Satan organizes the demonic forces. We have also exposed many of the demonic strategies against individual believers. When we begin to look at the seven churches described in the Book of Revelation, we discover specific demonic strongholds that can be found at church. Let’s take a look at these spirits. Spirit of Religion (Revelation 2:4–5, 7) The church at Ephesus had “left their first love” (Rev. 2:4). They were doctrinally sound and had everything in order but they had lost their passion for…

SINGLE, YET FULFILLED

I remember when I was still in the university. As I got to my final year, people began to ask, “so when are you getting married?” I wasn’t really surprised or taken aback, because I’ve actually come to realise that we live in a society where so much importance is attached to marriage, a society where people hold tenaciously to the belief that once a lady is done with school or National Youth Service, then the next step for her to take should be marriage. In this part of the…

LONG ROAD TO SUCCOUR: Devil’s Fingers and Angels’ Wings.

“All these are the beginning of birth pains…,” Matthew 24:8 (NIV). My first name is Daniel. Not the biblical Hebrew boy Daniel taken captive by the once ancient Babylonian conquerors of the once Jewish Kingdoms (Israel and Judah). That Daniel stood ramrod for God, through the burning furnace, to the lions’ den, and many more. And he could interpreted dreams with an uncanny, perfect precision. By God’s help though. This Daniel (me) is still working hard on his faith. And cannot interpret dreams with such uncanny precision. I have felt…
