CHURCH INVOLVEMENT IN CREATION OF CULTISM

PLEASE PRAY FOR THE CITY OF IKORODU

“Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it.  For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it. Matthew 7:13-14

THE ISSUE OF “BADOO” REIGNING IN IKORODU, THE GOVERNMENT AND THE CITIZENS SHOULD LOOK BEYOND THE RITUAL PEOPLE. “CHRISTIANS” ARE INVOLVED 

Christianity in Nigeria has become a cliche

A person that they gave a (traditional/idol worshipping title). Claimed to be a born again and given a position of deacon in the church, because he’s a millionaire, but still attending idol worshipers meetings and the overseers are looking away. 

“Born again” Kings with all sacrifice shrine in their backyard, then who is the real ritualist?

The General overseers should stop jeopardizing the lives of the ones that are truly born again and the entire children of God.  

Ritualism is thriving because they have the rich people as their clients, and many of our Churches, Kings, Entrepreneur, and Politicians are their primary clients. 

WE SHOULD NOT EXEMPT THE RELIGIOUS OVERSEERS IF TRULY  WE WANT TO DEAL WITH RITUALISM 

Call the general Overseers together and have a meeting with them, because the causes of rituals, cultist or other atrocities are more than what eyes can see.

CHURCH INVOLVEMENT IN CREATION OF CULTISM

How can you send pastors to go and establish more parishes where you’ve already had over thousand Parishes, and you’re compelling the pastors that they must become 5 thousand members secure by all means before the next Holy Ghost service, if not they lose their respective parish. When has members become commodity that you can double at will? 

Common, Nigerians should stop acting like you’re ignorant of what is going on in your surroundings. What do you expect the “born again” pastors to do?

Since many of these people called “born again” know better how to use the traditional skill they have before they got “born again” doubling the strength of their congregation is very easy, but the outcome we will keep on seeing is something like cultism.  Unless our Churches start going through the narrow gate, the good result is not in view

READ THE BIBLE NOT EXAGGERATED MOTIVATIONAL OR DEVOTIONAL BOOKS

FIRST-HAND INFORMATION

If Joshua had resolved to use Moses rod because he had seen Moses used it before, instead of following the instruction that God has given to him. That rod could have failed him. Had it been that David used Saul’s armored to confront the giant that giant would have ridiculed him too.

GOD WILL NEVER CALL YOU OUT FROM AMONG THEM FOR HIM TO ASK YOU TO BE USING THEIR SAME ADULTERATED PRINCIPLES.

IF GOD HASN’T FIND FAULT IN THEIR HYPOCRITICAL PRINCIPLES, WHY WOULD HE CALLED YOU OUT?

I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may be with you forever; that is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it does not see Him or know Him, but you know Him because He abides with you and will be in you. John 14:16-17.

Christians should always strive to get firsthand information from the helper, the Holy Spirit, through the book and not from any motivational or devotional books.

Especially if God has called you out for a particular purpose.

One of the reasons why many Christians don’t know what they believed anymore is because their subconscious mind is not at peace with what they claimed that they have heard. 

Many Christians relied too much on Exaggerated, motivational devotional books that give them second-hand information that they’re not comfortable with; Neither do the ones that gave the information to them can solely rely on it.

WHAT IS GOD SAYING TO YOU?

Acting on someone testimony you heard from the pulpit, or a Bishop exaggerations blindly without knowing the other side of the stories behind their assertions.

It may set you on a free fall journey, and you may end up doubting God’s ability.  

Many statements you hear from the Church pulpits are half lies.

There was a time someone told me that their General Overseer asks them to be buying shares in their Church for eternal prosperity. After he has given a testimony of someone.

I said to him that I had not receive such instruction from the one who called me.

He said the “Daddy GO” has commanded. I told him that I have not heard from the commander of all commanders. 

When the same person hit the brick wall, he came back to me again and said he’s doomed. And I asked him to take courage. 

As a child of God, receiving instruction directly from Him is not an option but a must.

“Please receive instruction from His mouth And establish His words in your heart. Job 22:22

LIBERALITY IS NOT SYNONYMOUS TO STUPIDITY

Accountability is not a choice for any Christ follower.

All Christian leaders agreed that they need to hold their followers accountable for their actions. But who holds the leaders accountable?

You planted a church; you said God instructed you to instruct all the members to sow everything they have towards the church project for kingdom purpose, that in return they will receive kingdom benefit.
However, you squandered all the money they sowed on personal project and when the few people with integrity raised the issue; you said you’re not accountable to anyone or any Church governing body.

Then why did you involved God in the first place and not just do fundraising through your friends and family? And also why did you approved of governing body?

If you truly think you’re not accountable to any Church governing body, do not be surprised if God look away when the unbeliever’s governing body is leading you to jail.

DID GOD REALLY SAY CHRISTIANS SHOULD NOT JUDGE?
THEN WHY WOULD HE ALLOW THE WORLDLY TO JUDGE HIS OWN?

A pastor that they said owns the “largest” Church in the world was Convicted of Embezzling and he was jailed. It is not persecution, this is called accountability.

How did God allow that to happened to a respectable man of god? Well, we all know that God is not unjust, trust me God will always call our attention to our negligence or sin. But we might decide to reject the “Nathan” in our lives.

WHY DO CHRISTIANS SO MUCH LOVE PRISON MINISTRY, WHEN ACTUALLY THEIR ATTITUDE OF “DO NOT JUDGE” LED MANY THERE.

“Do not judge” Matt. 7:1. Did God really mean that we should never judge others? NO!
The scripture says it’s not the act of judging but the attitude with which we do it that God is most concerned about
“For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged” 7:2.

Apostle Paul told the Christians in Rome not to judge one another Romans 14:13 but he taught the Corinthians that they were to judge sinful believers and leave people outside the church to God 1 Cor. 5:12-13.
James said he who judges his brother speaks against the law 4:11 but also said that our judgments of others must be done with mercy 2:12-13.

Brethren, you don’t need to be confused, allow the Holy Spirit to lead you and guide you in all your ways.

LIBERALITY IS NOT SYNONYMOUS TO STUPIDITY

You don’t have to sell your entire family inheritance to contribute to the things of God.

“Now, brethren, we wish to make known to you the grace of God which has been given in the churches of Macedonia, that in a great ordeal of affliction their abundance of joy and their deep poverty overflowed in the wealth of their liberality.
For I testify that according to their ability, and beyond their ability, they gave of their own accord, begging us with much urging for the favor of participation in the support of the saints, and this, not as we had expected, but they first gave themselves to the Lord and to us by the will of God.
So we urged Titus that as he had previously made a beginning, so he would also complete in you this gracious work as well…
For this is not for the ease of others and for your affliction, but by way of equality— at this present time your abundance being a supply for their need, so that their abundance also may become a supply for your need, that there may be equality; as it is written, “He who gathered much did not have too much, and he who gathered little had no lack.” 2 Corinthians 2:8-15.

To the elders among you, I appeal as a fellow elder, a witness of Christ’s sufferings and one who also will share in the glory to be revealed: Be shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care, serving as overseers – not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be; not greedy for money, but eager to serve; not lording it over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock. And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that will never fade away.
1 Peter 5:1-4

BELIEVERS CAN CALL OUT DEAD ISSUES INTO MANIFESTATION OF GOD’S GLORY.

How? By Unwavering Trust in God.

Unwavering trust in God is not only what a servant of God said, it also includes that once you’ve heard the verdict of God concerning your issue from His word, you don’t need to be prostituting around Churches, Conferences or By Fire By Fire prayer camps or mountains anymore.

Stay right where God has planted you!

When Hannah needed a Child, she did not change from Shiloh to Redemption camp or to another mountain of  miracle.

Though Hannah knew the promises of God concerning her and lineage but at this time she has not seen one and that made her situation pathetic.
Either Hannah was faithful to God or not I don’t know about that, but what I do know is that Hannah knew, that it is only God that can override the punishment of any unfaithfulness if at all there is any.

Therefore Hannah made a decision to have a fatherly talk with God directly.
God did not only listen to Hannah but He answered her prayers. And the prophet said, “go in peace…”

OUR GOD IS NOT DEAF NOR BLIND

Which one would you prefer, to talk to God in your closet, allow God to send one of His messengers that knew nothing about your conversation with Him to you that God said, He has answered your prayers; or to go and give all your life savings to a Prophet or Daddy GO because of anxiety?

I am not implying that Hannah was unfaithful to God.

However for one reason or another that was best known to God, Hannah’s result was delayed.

YOU DON’T NEED A SPECIAL PROPHET OR SPECIAL SACRIFICIAL OFFERING TO RECEIVE YOUR PORTION FROM GOD ANYMORE, ALL YOU NEED IS TO ABIDE IN HIM AND HIS WORDS.

“If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. John 15:7

However you do need little Faith, Patience, Godly encouragement and Boldness to be able to see the manifestation of His promises concerning you.

A voice says, “Call out.” Then he answered, “What shall I call out?” All flesh is grass, and all its loveliness is like the flower of the field.
Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth Does not become weary or tired.
His understanding is inscrutable.
He gives strength to the weary, And to him who lacks might He increases power.
Isaiah 40:6‭, ‬28‭-‬29‬‬‬‬

BE ENCOURAGE

Don’t look at how bad is your situation right now, rise up by faith and call out those situation with what God has called them and you will surely see the manifestation of your promises in Jesus name.

DOES MONEY ANSWER ALL THINGS?

King Solomon said, “Men prepare a meal for enjoyment, and wine makes life merry, and money is the answer to everything. Ecclesiastes 10:19.

Jesus Christ says, “Do not work for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give to you, for on Him the Father, God, has set His seal.” John 6:27.

CAN MONEY BUY ETERNAL LIFE?

This quote was coined by King Solomon in the bible when he lost it with God as a result of wealth intoxication.

Money does not and cannot answer all things but can definitely take away your peace if you’re not extra careful.

Money cannot forgive your sins

Money cannot save your life

Money cannot deliver you from an incurable disease

Money cannot buy you eternal life

Money cannot buy you access to God.

Money cannot add another minute to your life

Money cannot buy you happiness

Money cannot buy you a clear conscience.

If you have an opportunity to ask many of the gospel preachers using private jets they will gladly tell you that they made a horrible mistake of their life for delving into worldly way.

Money is not equivalent to the peace of God and that is why we see the world turning upside down daily despite all the accumulations of money in the society.

Many Churches today don’t have peace because they have laid their hands on unrighteous things therefore they don’t have option than to join the worldly train of telling more lies and cajoling people to keep the train moving.

WHAT DOES JESUS SAYS ABOUT MONEY?

“But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. “So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. Matt 6:33-34.

Anything that is contrary to this command of Jesus Christ is a mission that already failed.

‘This is what I will do: “I will tear down my barns and build larger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods. And I will say to my soul, “Soul, you have many goods laid up for many years to come; take your ease, eat, drink and be merry.”’ But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your soul is required of you; and now who will own what you have prepared?’ So is the man who stores up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.” Luke 22:18-21.

Isaiah says, “Ho! Everyone who thirsts, come to the waters; And you who have no money come, buy and eat. Come; buy wine and milk without money and without cost. “Why do you spend money for what is not bread, And your wages for what does not satisfy? Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good, And delight yourself in abundance. Isaiah 55:1-2

IN CONCLUSION: ARE YOU LEAVING FOR MONEY OR FOR CHRIST?

“And He summoned the crowd with His disciples, and said to them, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me.  For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel’s will save it. For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world, and forfeit his soul? For what will a man give in exchange for his soul? For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will also be ashamed of him when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels.” Mark 8:34-38?
