Holy Women: This Is How To Be An Upgraded Version To Your Husband And Children

  1. Dear Married Lady, holy wives don’t just speak in tongues. They cook super meals, they raise godly kids, wear hot dresses(for their husbands), they have mind blowing sex & still make Heaven.

  2. Dear Married Lady, forget about changing your husband. Just be an upgraded version of you with more value and sweetness.

  3. Dear Married Lady, look at your Husband with the lenses of righteousness in Christ Jesus. He may have some wrong doings but do not focus on the wrong doings but rather focus on the Christ in him. In other words, focus on his positives and not the negatives. Do this in wisdom!

  4. Dear Married Lady, familiarity has the tendency of taking things for granted: our family and especially our husbands

Replace nagging with appreciation!

  1. Dear Married Lady, be the number one FAN of your husband. Support him in all his interest. Ensure you decree greatness in all his endeavours. Don’t allow other ladies to do this for you. Be the first and best at this.

  2. Dear Married Lady, as Christ is Love so are you. As Christ is forgiveness so are you. Do not punish your Husband with tight jeans. Let him give you some massage or buy you something nice. You are not a fool! You care for your marriage.

  3. Dear Married Lady, decide that loving is intentional and intentionally love your partner. Find out what love means to your partner and give it. Don’t assume a common definition of love. What is love to you may not be for him

Portray the love he yearns.

  1. Dear Married Lady, in this age where technology is supposed to break homes, use this same technology to build your home. Text your husband some hot messages as a shadow of the things awaiting him at home.

  2. Dear Married lady, don’t focus on the competition outside the home and get bitter. You are not the only Lady who Loves your husband. Focus on your Husband and

give him the best of treatment always; especially when you think he doesn’t deserve it.

  1. Dear Married Ladies, don’t become a prison for your husband. When it gets to the point where he needs space grant it to Him. There is freedom in true love. Over protective love is false and destructive. Use those periods to better yourself. Get the most sexiest look. Be your sweetest self when he returns home. You are always the winner.

  2. Dear Married Woman, be the curious and Creative type.

Don’t be shy to initiate lovemaking. Wear sexy lingeries does not mean you are spoilt or demon possessed. Join in the creativity, make your marriage fun. Afterwards blow in tongues together!

  1. Dear Married Lady, challenges may come in your marriage. Instead of letting it tatter you, you decide to make the best, look your best, love your best in the face of challenges. Guess what the Christ in you is the best. So you can’t be any less.

  2. Dear Married Lady, the fact that you have four kids does not mean let your body look 20 years older. You can start small. Discipline yourself. Check your weight. Don’t eat junk food. Take brisk walks! Exercise your body and be in Lady,

  3. Dear Married Lady, christianity is not the end of descent hot fashion. Christianity is not tagged with old ladyship. That you wear a Long gown does not mean you are holy. Dress well. Be neat. Look presentable. Let the young ladies check you up for the latest descent trend!

  4. Dear Married Lady, even when you’re tired, be sensitive to your man’s bedly needs. You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you. Don’t lazy yourself in front of him. It’s a bad signal. Be in readiness to satisfy Him at all times. Don’t give him reasons to look elsewhere.

  5. A woman of Grace who can find? She has a heart of gold. Gives her best even in the worst. She Loves like no Love other even at the most undeserving times.

  6. She is love. She is forgiveness. She is support. She is prayer. She is wisdom. She is your dream lover. She mothers the world. She is as Jesus is, so precious. She is loyal and strongly soaked in the word. She Rightly fits everywhere.

UNMASKING THE EVIL PRACTICE OF MAMMON IN THE CHURCH (part 2)

II Den Of Robbers! It was preparatory to one of the most celebrated feasts of the Jews: the feast of Passover.

Jerusalem was agog with activities. The Temple court particularly had become a beehive of what could be likened to a boisterous religious activity. The priests and levites prepared for the festival, just like every other Jew in Jerusalem.

Animal sacrifices were going to be made. Plenty of them. So it was understandable for stalls for animals to be around the temple for prospective buyers.

Jews were going to be turning up from many villages and cities around Jerusalem. Carrying animals all the way for sacrifices may be rather cumbersome.

What if the animals got wounded on the way? It would become unacceptable for sacrifices. Besides, the animals in the stalls around and the ones that spilled to the Temple Court may have been inspected and certified unblemished by the temple workers.

Jews were also coming from the diaspora. Exchanging money to the local currency would be necessary. Some may need to pay the yearly temple tax, half a shekel, “according to the shekel of the sanctuary”.

So the “Bureau De Change” took their position. The tables of these money changers were set in the temple court. One would think this too was understandable .

Everything appeared to be done “to the glory of God”. It had become a culture over the years. No one thought anything was wrong. No one raised an eyebrow.

As a matter of fact, a casual observer would  see a people in love with their God. A people passionately eager to keep a festival as God had commanded their fore-fathers.

But there came along a man who saw beyond the ordinary.  He wouldn’t be assimilated into the boisterous religious activities taking place: Jesus of Nazareth, He was popularly called.

While others saw the feast of the Passover for that year gaining traction, He saw ‘merchandise’ carefully wrapped in religion.

While others saw men trooping into the house of God,  He saw men walking unknowingly into a den of robbers. (Mt. 21:12,13).

See, a den of robbers is a hideout for thieves. It doesn’t immediately appear like a place where you would get robbed. It is a place where people get ripped off without them even taking notice.

These people had thought they were truly involved in worship. They didn’t know they had become victims of merchandising.

One would have thought that all the temple activities  were geared towards making life and worship easier for everyone. Little did men know they were victims of sharp practices.

I like the rendering of The Passion Translation of the account in the book of John:

“As he went into the temple courtyard, he noticed it was filled with merchants selling oxen, lambs, and doves for EXORBITANT PRICES , while others were OVERCHARGING as they exchanged currency behind their counters. So Jesus found some rope and made it into a whip. Then he drove out every one of them and their animals from the courtyard of the temple, and he kicked over their tables filled with money, scattering it everywhere! And he shouted at the merchants, “Get these things out of here! Don’t you dare make my Father’s house into a center for merchandise!”

John 2:14‭-‬16 TPT.

How familiar today!

Let me be brutally honest with you.  Much of what appears as worship centres today are nothing but den of robbers.  They have institutionalized a culture of taking from people under false pretenses.

These centers of merchandise are multiplying by the day but you think it is the kingdom of God or the church of Christ that is spreading. You are so wrong sir.

In such places, widows and the needy are being robbed of their meagre livelihood in the name of tithes and offerings in order to secure an open heaven or rebuke an imaginary devourer.

The poor is being ripped off in the name of seed sowing ostensibly to secure an ill-defined “next level” or a better future.

The blessings, provision, protection and goodness of God are being auctioned for sale in what is supposed to be “the house of God”.

It has become a conduit pipe to divert funds from many, to cater to the inordinate desires and greed of a few who sit at the pinnacle of their personal empires disguised as the church of Christ.

Sadly, this evil is being championed by the Bible-preaching, pius-looking, well respected men in the religious circles.

See, for many undiscerning church goers, this is one truth they may never come to terms with, due to the depth of brainwashing they have been subjected to over many years. They have been deceived, and they go on deceiving others.

Today, we even have the 21st century fundraising money changers in the church. They are the well sort-after conference speakers in Pentecostal circles and that alone should suggest the enormity of the fraud going on, all in the name of God.

They are the mobile “bureau de change” that move from one pulpit to another raising offering in foreign currency in a local assembly.

While you are battling to make ends meet with your local currency, Your much-cherised pastor invites them over to raise dollars from you.

They ask you to raise a strange altar with 💰 on behalf of your children and you believe them. You obviously don’t know the hope of your calling.

You have been lied to, and you are loving it. You even give excuses for them.  “The work of God needs money to run” you said.  So if the church needs money for a purpose,  why not spill it straight up? Why armtwist people psychologically by attaching specific blessings or curse to their giving?

You have been introduced to a strange father, who needs your money to bless you. Unknown to you, you have been introduced to a strange god, whose name is mammon.

The picture you have of God is heavily jaundiced by false teachings.  You don’t know the kind of Heavenly Father you have in God.

The reason you attack us for sharing this truth in the open is simple: you are still a slave to the religious system of this world that is ripping you off mercilessly and you don’t even know it.

How I wish you knew!

A woman once said and I agree: “I freed a thousand slaves. I would have freed a thousand more, if only they knew they were slaves”.

Wake up friends. Wake up and smell the coffee! Save yourselves from these den of robbers camouflaged as the church of Christ.  .

Christ is delivering his people from the clutches of falsehood in our days. And  I believe you are next!  You shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.

UNMASKING THE EVIL PRACTICE OF MAMMON IN THE CHURCH (part 1)

 

Call NO man father

By: Mr. Abiodun Jemilohun


WHY YOU MUST CALL NO MAN YOUR FATHER (Mat  23:7-10)

There seems to be a confusion in regard what Jesus meant by the statement “Call no man your father.” 

Someone asked me to address the subject. I also believe it is appropriate to do so because of the controversy it is currently generating.

“7 And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi. 8 But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren. 9 And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.10 Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ.” (Mat  23:7-10)

A number of people have accused Paul of violating Jesus’ command for referring to himself as “father” in his relationship to the Corinthian Church. Some have gone as far as calling him heretic. Let me state clearly that I do not share such view.

“For though ye have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet have ye not many fathers: for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel.” (1Co 4:15)

But Peter called Mark who was not his biological son “My son.”  In other words, he called himself his father. So, we can say he also violated Jesus’ command.

“The church that is at Babylon, elected together with you, saluteth you; and so doth Marcus MY SON.” (1Peter 5:13)

John the beloved also called the brethren “Children” severally in his writings. In fact, he called them “Little children.” So, we can say he also referred to himself as “father” contrary to Jesus’ command.

“I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.” (3John 1:4)

“My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.” (1John 2:1)

“I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his name’s sake.” (1John 2:12

We have to start on the premise that whatever Jesus said in that statement is figurative. If not, we are all guilty of violating Jesus’s command for calling our earthly progenitors “fathers.”

We have to be careful how we interpret the Bible. There are many figurative expressions in the Bible that cannot be taken literally. Otherwise, we would fall into error.

Jesus spoke in the language of the common people of His day. Some of His statements cannot be taken literally in the modern sense.

For example, the statements of Jesus “Call no man your Father” or “do not be called Master”  cannot be taken literally. The Jews understood Him perfectly because He spoke in their language. The Rabbis of that time were referred to as “fathers” and “masters.” They were considered as the final authority in matters of doctrine and scriptural knowledge. Their words were final as far as spiritual matters were concerned. They were considered as the Oracle of God. They usurped the position of the Scripture and God in the lives of the people. This was why Jesus reprimanded them for exalting their commandments and traditions above the commandments of God. They took the position of God in the lives of the people.

“3 But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition? 4  For God commanded, saying, Honour thy father and mother: and, He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death. 5  But ye say, Whosoever shall say to his father or his mother, It is a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me; 6  And honour not his father or his mother, he shall be free. Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition.” (Mat 15:2-6)

So, this is what Jesus meant when He said “Call no man your father” or “Do not be called  master”. He was saying let no man be the final authority in your life except God. Let no man take the position of the Scripture in your life. Let no man take the position of God in your heart. Let God have the final say in your life. This is the context in which Jesus spoke and the people He spoke to understood Him. It is different from referring to people as “father” or “Chilren” out of familiarity or affection like the apostles did.

Now, the Nigerian situation is similar to the situation of the Jews of Jesus’ time. Many of the people being referred to as “fathers” and “daddies” have taken the position of the Scripture and Christ in the lives of their followers. They are the final authority as far as spiritual matters are concerned and not the explicit commands of the Scripture. They have waxed all kinds of denominational traditions and doctrines that clearly violate the scriptures like the Pharisees of old. They are not to be questioned or challenged even when they are wrong. They are master and lord.

As for the Apostle Paul, we know that he didn’t seek to take the place of God in the lives of the Churches he planted. He never sought to take the place of the Scripture. He made Christ the primary focus of the Church.

“1 And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God. 2  For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.3  And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling.4  And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:  5 That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.” (1Cor 2:1-5)

Paul used the word “father” in his relationship with the Corinthians to portray the  affection he had for them and to remind them that he was the one God used to bring them to the knowledge of Christ. This is not the same as what Christ warned the disciples against.

A word of caution to those who call Paul heretic:

Let’s bear in mind that Paul was a well-read man who understood the cultures and philosophies of the Jews and the Greeks and had his peculiar style of writing. Unless we put this into consideration, we will inevitably misinterpret some of his writings to mean what he did not intend. Even Peter attested to this fact. He gave his writings the same level of authority the Old Testament scriptures have. So, we will be making a grave error if we start challenging them this way without due consideration for their context.

“15 And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you; 16  As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also THE OTHER SCRIPTURES, unto their own destruction.” (2Pet 15-16)

We have to be careful how we interpret the Bible. Once we start challenging the scriptures, we are inadvertently elevating ourselves above the scriptures like the Rabbis of Jesus’ time. We are also inevitably saying there is no absolute truth. Such attitude won’t take us to the desired end. It is better to seek for more understanding in areas that are unclear in the scriptures rather than to outrightly take a position that goes contrary.

May the Lord bless our understanding.

Shalom!

THE FIRST AND THE LAST QUESTIONS GOD ASKED MAN AT THE FIRST FALL

WHY YOU SHOULD CONVERT YOUR PAST MISTAKES TO SUCCESS TOOLS – Mine Your Past…There is nothing you went through that was a waste. What didn’t kill you was intended to feed you. Often times, the gold mine of our destiny is not in the future but in our past.

2 girls were raped in the same city. One decided to tell her story to the world hoping that more girls in her shoes would find hope in her story. She later became a global figure, speaking frequently at United Nations’ international events on rape and girl-child education. The other girl developed a phobia for men and lives a bitter lonely life. The difference is that the successful girl mined her past while the 2nd girl suppressed hers.

WHY YOU SHOULD CONVERT YOUR PAST MISTAKES TO SUCCESS TOOLS

2 guys were released from jail. One became a motivational speaker, encouraging school kids to turn away from crime using his story as a point of reference. He later became very famous and wealthy. But the other guy became depressed after he saw how much his mates had accomplished while he was in jail. He committed suicide and died painfully. Again, the difference is that the successful guy mined his past.

The fact that you have a past is a proof that you also have a future. The glory of your future is somehow connected to the story of your past. Unveiling the story of your past will unleash your glorious future.

Your past is not meant to be mourned, it is meant to be mined. The more painful your story is, the more gainful your glory will be.

Think about all the inspirational people you know, are they not people who once failed, Rose and started telling stories of their failures? You too can tell your story and inspire someone. By so doing, you would have mined your past.

Maranatha!
