The Enduring Love

Sometimes,we come to a point in our life where our emotions weigh more than our spirituality. Sometimes,we come to the point of loving people with the whole of our heart,but don't seem to get back the same measure of love with which we once loved them. Never relent, keep loving people you come across in life,cos that's the true essence of our Christianity. I tell people,that Christianity is not a religion but a lifestyle. It is our relationship with people we come across in life. Sometimes you come to the point in your life,where you find yourself loving them the more, despite their actions & reactions towards You. Often times,you feel puzzled & then you ask yourself questions like "is this really You" only to discover that after looking into the perfect law of liberty & keeping tryst with God in the place of prayer,You come out of His Presence looking like Him. There is this daily transformation of You into becoming like Him. You then have so much of Him, that you got no space for bitterness or any form of resentments within your heart. It's indeed a life of daily transformation.

The Battle for the Young (Episode 6)-The Battle Begins

Then the Lord went on to address the young men. The word 'men' here is used in a generic sense & it includes both the young men & the young ladies. He says,I write to you young men because you have overcome the wicked one. The word 'overcome' indicates battle. When God,in that scripture,came to dealing with young people,the language switched to that of battle. It is about the battle for the young. Repeating it for definite emphasis,God said,
I have written to you young men because you are strong & the word of God abides in you & you have overcome the wicked one.
That immediately shows that someone is very greedily desirous of tampering with you as a youth. That person is no other than the wicked one,the devil. As soon as you step into the teenage years,the battle begins. Whereas you might have had some little agitations in your heart before this time as a child,it is nothing compared with what you face as a teenager or as a youth. This time the conflicts come fierce & incessant. It comes with an inordinate pressure from within your heart. Have you noticed that this particular segment of your life is a time when things happen to you,that you yourself are sometimes surprised about? There are things that baffle you & sometimes you ask 'but why am I like this?'
One of the first significant things that would sometimes surprise even you,when you become a youth is how you started querying everything your father & mother told you as a child.
Before,when Daddy spoke,you simply said 'Yes sir'. But now, when they say a christian should not do this',you found yourself asking... 'Why? What will happen if I do it?'
When you were a little child,your parents went to the market & you received whatever they brought for you. But how many young people now enjoy having their mothers go to the market to buy dresses for them? If she does so without taking you along,the immediate response as a youth is,'No! If you meant to buy something for me,you should have asked me what I wanted,or you could have given me the money & I would have gone to make my choice by myself.'
At this time of your youth,when your mother makes a long dress for you,the first inclination of your heart is to go back to the tailor to adjust it the way you like. That shows you've reached the age where you want to make your choices. When you step into this second segment of your life,whatever people used to choose for you before & you gladly took,suddenly becomes outdated to you. You have to choose it again for yourself. This is the reason why some,who were very serious choir members as children suddenly fell out in their teenage years.
It is as if something is battling for your affection,for your decision & for your choice. This is the age of personal choices. It is usually the time of inner crises. At this time,there is a fierce battle for your mind,your focus & your affections as a youth.

It is the battle for the young!

The Battle for the Young (Episode 5)- lamenting the wasted youth

There are so many people you see on the road now that are abandoned. Do you know why?  The enemy has already collected what he wants from their lives & he does not want their  empty carcasses again. Even though the devil will like to see fathers go to hell,he is not fighting too much to have them. As far as he is concerned,he has already collected what he wanted. He has sifted them like wheat & has left them with the empty chaff. They will most likely end up with him in hell anyway. As I think about this, I remember again the story of My message at the professor's daughter's wedding in Episode one. When I was called up to take the preaching on that day,they started adjusting their spectacles saying,'who is that? Where is he From?' When I asked them to stand up & sing,I heard them grumbling, 'Why is he worrying us? Let him say what he wants to say & go & sit down.' They were mostly old men & women. Not many things excite people who are already old,especially if it is coming from a young man,as I was then. When I noticed their attitude was that negative,I decided not to look at their faces again so that I will be able to speak to them boldly from the word of God. As I started preaching & the word of God began to affect them,I started hearing  some 'hmms & 'ahhs'. When you  preach to old people;fathers & mothers,their response is quite different. The reason is that everything you say to them only reminds them of their past. Most of their years are already behind them. They are not looking forward to much again. Whenever I remember the man who walked up to me after the service...his lamentation & tears. I also wished I had preached to him  when he was young like you. This is because no mater how powerful the message I preached was, & no matter how much he wished to repent,he had made irretrievable & irreversible choices that even repentance cannot change. Then I remembered the woman & how she said, "For me It is too late".
Those things affected me a lot. It means that It is possible for people to hear the word of God too late. It means they could even repent too late. That does not mean that they were too late to be converted. But it was too late for them to enjoy the correct life that the word of God they were just hearing,could have brought them into. So when you hear God saying to the fathers... "because you have known Him who is from the beginning"....He is talking about history,referring to what is already past. When you face fathers & elders & those that are old,most of what you talk about is in their past. You simply remind them of where they are coming from & only help them to see where they can correct whatever remains before they go to sleep in death. Even when the Holyghost will come on old men,the bible says they will only dream dreams. A dream is often a recapturing of what happened to you before,which is being brought back to your consciousness as a drama in your thoughts. But when the Holyghost comes on young people,the bible tells us that they will see visions;they will see things that are yet to happen.
Yes, that is a major difference.
Dreams are from the past. Visions are from the future. Old men are dreamers of what they could have done or done better,young men are men of the future. They see what is possible ahead for them in life. It is very crucial,now that you are young,for something definite to happen to you that will make you see the invisible which will define your life in the days ahead. This time of your youth is not a time to be cosmetic or plastic,floating through life as if you are in a dream but rather a time to be deliberately authentic & realistic with your choices.
This time of your youth is the most crucial part of your life time & It is the determinant matrix of your entire future.

The Battle for the Young (Episode 4)-peculiar challenges

I write unto you,little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his name's sake.
I write unto you fathers,because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I write unto you young men, because ye have overcome  the wicked one. I write unto you little children,because ye have known the Father.
I have written unto you fathers,because ye have known him that is  from the beginning. I have written unto you young men,because ye are strong & the word of God abideth in you,and ye have overcome the wicked one. (1John 2:12-14(KJV)
In times past,when I read this passage,I was always left baffled,wondering at the repetition. But I've been brought to see something,which is one reason my heart has turned again to the young people. I discovered that God recognizes three segments in every man's life & each of them is quite peculiar,definite & different from the other. And because people do not understand the peculiarities & differences of these three segments,they are often overwhelmed by the challenges that comes to them with each segment. God Himself recognizes the first segment where He knows people to be 'little children'. At that time,you were a baby,a toddler & just a little child. That was a time,when you were carrier everywhere you went. You were taken to church;you were taken to fellowship;and as they sang, you were taught the songs & you sang with them. That is what characterises the life of little children.
It is the time of indoctrination. You do what you are told asking no questions & your father or mother is ready to bear the responsibility of anything that happens as a result. All the child needs to do is just to obey. He does not worry how to get his provision. He only needs to cry & the parents would run around to meet the needs. It is the time of utmost dependence. Victory at that segment of life is purely in being under the cloak of the parents. But if we will only be little children throughout our lives, the Bible would have stopped at the point of saying,'because your sins are forgiven you for His Name's sake.' When you were a little child,there were not so many conflicts in your heart. Whatever you were told,you believed. There were no questions in your mind. When 'Daddy' said, 'this thing is like this,' you believed it & went about telling everybody you met that, 'This thing is like this.' When they asked why, you simply said,'Dad said so.'
Oftentimes,even parents do not understand that this is only the first segment. So they enjoy it because it looks easy to bring up a child. but that segment of being little children,as good as it is,is a very simple, basic, but short segment. After this there is another segment. After writing  to people in that first segment  of life, I thought the next persons that God should have written to,should have been the young men. But He skipped  doing so. And that challenged me.
He went on to say,'I write to you fathers because you have known Him who is from the beginning.'
My question then is, 'but why did he skip the young man?' I discovered again that it does not take much effort to do the correct things when you have become a father. Whether you repent or not,when you become a father,there are certain behaviors that will leave you. For example,it is only when you are a young person that you can wear high heeled shoes & cat-walk around. Look at any of your parents & grandparents;do you see them wearing such again? No. Even their legs cannot carry such shoes. Their excitement over such things has evaporated. There are many fathers today who used to drink alcohol when they are young;and they did until they damaged their liver. Now when you bring an alcoholic drink to such a father,he would easily say 'no!' not because he has repented of drunkenness,but when he takes just a cup,his stomach gets disinterested. So he sighs & says, 'I will not drink again.'
This is because the enemy who won the battle over such a life when he was young,has collected what he wanted & has left him empty & emptied.

The Battle for the Young (Episode 3) -The Raging battle

There is a raging battle between God & the devil; and it is all about you. Both God & the devil equally believe in the young man & in the young woman. If you get into the heart of the devil today,the greatest mobilization he is making is for the young person to become his own. And if you're able to get to Heaven to look into the very heart of God,it will surprise you that God is tremendously yearning for the young person. The Bible says,
As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man;so are the children of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them; they shall not be ashamed,but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.(Psalm127:4-5(KJV)
That scripture even says 'happy is the man' & not 'happy is the God'. This is to tell you that apart from God & the devil,even a man is happy if his quiver is full of young people. The real battles of this world are about capturing the young people. When you understand this battle,then you will understand why you are facing all the conflicts that you do as a young person. You will understand why you are confronted with all the challenges that are coming your way. You are at a serious junction of choice in life & you dare not throw your life into this boxing ring or make any decision without a definite divine guidance. As a matter of priority,you need to come into a fresh encounter with God right away,so that you can hear Him speak clearly to you on what you must do with your youth,in preparation for the years ahead of you. What makes it urgent is that there is a fierce combat for your life & it will either make or mar you for life.
You cannot be passive. A 'Yes' to God is a 'No' to the devil & an 'indecision' for God is equally a 'welcome' to the enemy who is seeking whom to devour.
As a person,where I have reached in life today,including the wife I married,is the result of the choices I made long before today. Whatsoever your destiny will unveil tomorrow cannot in any way be different from the choices you are making now that you are young.
I urge you to read this with eagerness and serious determination to break forth into the supernatural with God and pitch your tent henceforth,where your destiny will be helped.

The Battle for the Young (Episode 2)

The time of the youth is the prime  time in anyone's life. It is a great privilege to be young. Many old people do envy the youth. They wish they could return to being youth again; and that is why they try to do whatever they can, to look young. Unfortunately,being young comes only once in a lifetime. No one can be young more than once. As a lady,you cannot be "sweet sixteen" more than once. Once you pass the age of sixteen, it is clear that you can never be sixteen again. However the time of youth is also the period of making choices. And the choices at this prime time of life are such that make indelible marks on one's life & destiny. There is a battle going on in this world concerning young people & it's all about influencing their choices. Choices that will mark your life out for greatness & glory are made when you are young. If you meet an accomplished old man,prosperous & celebrated,enjoying the care of his equally successful children, it did not just happen somewhere in his old age. It is the product of a series of wise choices that he made in his teens & twenties. On the other hand,choices that will predispose you to perpetual defeat & failure are also made when you are young. Whatever wrong things we see in an old man today,most likely happened because of the choices he made when he was young. If you see an old woman whose marriage is scattered & she is pushed between one man & another, it is not likely to be due to choices she made when she has become that old. She laid the foundation to be that kind of woman when she was young. The unfortunate thing about these choices is that whether they were made consciously or unconsciously,they are often irreversible. The time of youth is not only one of making choices; it is also the time for laying the foundation for every aspect of future life. It is at this time that you lay the foundation for your career in life,your marriage & your destiny. In fact,everything that you will become in life is being founded now in the time of your youth. It is the time of tremendous strength & energy,a time of freshness. It is the time all your nerves & instincts are seeking the strongest expression. The direction you 'plough' them now that you are young,determines the destination you will 'reap' in the years ahead. This time of your youth is a very crucial time that determines what happens for the rest of your life. The time of one's youth is also the time of warfare. This is when you pitch your tent on whichever side you choose in the battle of life. And you either choose God or Satan. It is in this period of your life when you're  called 'the youth' that you make that choice. God is out,mercifully looking for you,so that you will make Him your choice; but the devil is also fighting hard, to make sure he has you on his side. That is why the counsel of the word of God to everyone who is a youth is;
so remember your creator in the days of your youth,before the difficult days come,and the years draw near when you will say, "I have no pleasure in them";(Eccl.12:1(NET)

If you overcome in this battle now that you are young & make the Lord your choice,you will always overcome in every sphere of your life.

The battle for the Young(Episode 1)

While you are Young
In 1985, I was invited to preach at a Professor's daughter's wedding. You can imagine the cream of the society seated; Professors,Doctors,Businessmen & women,high ranking Government officials etc. Men & women who seemed to have made their mark in the world. As I brought the word of life to the young couple,who were just starting their journey into marriage,I set forth principle after principle of how God designed the home to work. God enabled Me to bring out the message with clear instructions & illustrations. He also permitted Me to share living testimonies of how the principles have worked both in My personal experience and in several homes,I have been privileged to watch over. After the service,two people came to me,one after the other. The first man, quite elderly,looked at Me, adjusted his spectacles and said..."Young man, I wish I met you in 1943. If I had met you forty-two years ago & heard what you're preaching now,I would not have been what I am today. What can I do now? I have spoilt my life, I have wasted my marriage, and I don't even know where to begin again. I wish I had met you then."
"Where were you, when I just married?" he added rhetorically.
I did not answer, I could not. I knew he was not expecting an answer from Me. As I stood there, looking at an old man shedding tears,I also wished I had met him then.
The second person was the wife of one of the University professors. She walked up to Me,looked at Me with eyes full of regret & said..."Well, I thank you for all You have said. For me it is too late but I am going to buy the tapes for My daughter,so that she will not go the way I went."
All through the day, I could not get their words out of my mind. So,a man can hear the word of God too late. So, wrong choices made early in life,may never be correctable again later on in life. I suddenly realized the great privilege of being young. I realized the prime value of being a youth. It became clear that there are things that must happen to me,as a youth,if I will not live my adult years in

The Turbulent Power of the Gospel

Not until you go our there & preach the gospel,you will never know the difference between carrying your Bible to church & carrying the same bible to preach the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. There is indeed a great disparity between the both. There is a spirit that fights every man in preaching of the gospel,but that actually,is the only commission given to us by the Lord Jesus before leaving planet earth & the benefits are absolutely innumerable & immeasurable as well. If you as a "christian" cannot preach the gospel of the Lord Jesus with boldness,then it is a revelation that you're still in bondage of sin in it's classification. You can never know the power inherent in you as a christian, until you declare Jesus & him crucified to the people around you & the world at large. When you preach the gospel, you automatically become Heaven's top priority. You automatically become the Father's favourite & He starts to loose you from all the shackles & thralldom of the enemy,because you've deliberately purposed in your heart to serve him till the end. When one preaches the gospel,he/she automatically becomes "God's own project" strictly under his supervision. He daily prunes & chastens you for the task ahead. Then you will find yourself, dropping & doing away with the old habits & characteristics of parentage,which once held you in utmost slavery & once upon a time bridged the workings of the Lord in your life. Until you preach the gospel of the kingdom,not by persuasion of men but out of the Love of God that has been shed abroad on your heart,you will never know what it means to live a life of perfection on earth.

The Truth of Manhood

Sometimes, I'm thrilled by the "civilization of the world" & the obscurity of their approach to certain facets of life. When they talk about terms like "Manhood". They end up narrowing it to flexing of muscles & possession of vital features. They talk about the body structure,the tone of the voice,height & complexion. They bask on the physical adroitness of manhood. Completely forgetting that,there is a source to everything. They fail to understand,that there is a spiritual bearing to the physical side of it & that everything you can see represented outwardly, is supposed to have a spiritual bearing. Because they have strayed far from the Father of all spirits in understanding of this concept,they have gone ahead to propound their theorems & establish their philosophical ideologies which is in sharp contrast with the original concept of the Creator regarding the Truth of it in a man. Everything you see outwardly in a man is only but a "mere shadow" of who a man is meant to be in the spiritual side. There is more to it, than the superficial qualities being expressed to the spiritual myopism of humans. Manhood is more of an inner quality & total yielding of a man to becoming like Christ. It is in the conversion of the heart,from that of stone to that of flesh; a soft heart. A heart that forgives the worst. This kind of man is "soft" & "strong" at the same time. It is an art, that only few has mastered. This is a man that is roomy enough to contain all that God has in store for his life & family,such that his wife can go into him & take out what she needs to be relevant in her generation. He has a "large heart" which is able to accommodate the "worst" in men around him. This is a man of total transparency & understanding. This is the man that hears from the Lord,to form his direction & leadership in the Holyghost. This is the man that rises up in the early hours of the morning praying incessantly & waiting on the Lord for the direction of the day. He daily inspires his wife & children. His life is a motivation to his family & people around him. Such a man is not carried away by the blessings of God upon his family. He daily sanctifies his wife,by the washing of the water by the word of God. That he may present her unto the Lord & himself;a priceless jewel without spots or wrinkles. He does not forget the days of his little beginning. He's indeed a man of love.

True Love

We live in a world,where it is easy to profess fake love, people love more with their words but do little or nothing with their actions. Love is an action word, it's not passive. It is always on the move. Looking for ways to make it's object entirely happy. How can you love God as a Christian & not tell people in your vicinity about him. It's only but a revelation,that you're a professor of fake love. When a man is really in love with a girl. It as such,brings him sleepless nights. His thoughts suddenly becomes beclouded with ways on how to be a "contributing factor" to her happiness  & fulfillment in life endeavors. He wouldn't hurt her with his words or do things to get her pissed off. He lovingly picks the pins that falls off her hands not minding the number of times,with no feeling of resentments. In the same vein, when a man is in love with the Lord,his mind becomes engrossed with ways on how to please Him. He can't live out a day without telling people about his Father's love. Such a man shares & identifies with the Lord even in suffering,because of the love of God shed abroad on his heart by the Holyghost. If you really love the Lord, you will have an intense burden for lost souls,which will definitely move you into the preaching of the gospel. Oftentimes, when you tell people to pray,they just say a word of prayer & that's all they know,because they are puzzled about what one will be praying about for three hours. Until you preach the gospel, until you go out there & see people languishing in sin. Not until you're genuinely saved yourself. You will not transcend into the realm of interceding for lost souls in a great deal of quality time,who you've once encountered in the gospel field.

The Vision of the Kingdom (Pt 2)

Vision is not static,it's dynamic relative to the movement of God in one's life. Vision is contagious,it's not abstract. It is touchable & visible to men around you. It is not just resident in the heart alone,as people would have it. Because for every truth,there is an evidence. But the question is "where then is the truth of the vision of the kingdom of God in a man?". It shouldn't just end up in words & old fables proceeding from your lips but rather in the substance living of the life of Jesus in you.
Where is the vision? It is in the life lived. It's in the movement of the child of God in you into works of righteousness. A man with the vision of the kingdom need not be told,what to do in His Father's vineyard. A man of vision is the man that fulfills fulfills the principle of time. Such a specie,can never be late to the programs of the kingdom. But the opposite is the case, in the life of many "Christians". Nobody is time conscious,whereas they are entirely faithful & diligent to their work in the physical affair of life. If your dedication to your boss in the office is a function of your dedication to God's service,then you can be sure that revival won't be far-fetched. But because you lack the vision of the kingdom,you tend to value your job much more than the things of your "Father in Heaven". You place as first priority,your devotion to a "mere mortal",because of what to eat & drink. But is passive,when it comes to your devotion to the Father of all spirits,who gives you life & health to be committed to a mere man as you. Forgetting that your Heavenly Father knows that you have need of material things. Whenever you make a resolution to be serious with God. The devil quickly comes & reminds you of the physical responsibilities on you as the head of the family & how inefficient you will be in discharging it effectively,if you should be "too serious" with your Father's business. She cleverly reminds you of the scripture which says that "wisdom is profitable to direct" & how the Bible also said that "there is time for everything" all in concerted efforts to subtly sway your heart from venturing into your Father's business. She takes up those responsibilities of yours that are minor things for God to handle & amplifies them, making it look ambiguous & as though an uphill task before your little eyes, all in an attempt to scare you away from "spiritual programs & involvements". All these happen to you,because you have lost the vision of the kingdom. I pray that you will open your heart to the Holyspirit,so that He can bring alive again,that which has been dead or has entered into a deliberate state of dormancy in Jesus Name.

The Vision of the Kingdom (Pt 1)

Vision is one of the greatest spiritual force in life. It is a motor force,a propeller, the engine that runs & sustains the system. It is a driving force. For a man, to become anything in life, vision must be greatly coveted. Looking at the present state of the church, I discovered that what the people of God lacked is "vision". Though they are greatly engrossed in the activities & programs organized by the church heads so to say. But one thing is lacking & that is "vision". The deficiency of this has caused them to turn Christianity,which was meant to be the life of Jesus,visible in a man through his actions & functionalities into a "mere religion". It is now used as a cloak to cover up imperfect traits & vices inherent in a man's life. People living their lives with no eternity in view. Dead men with dead conscience walking upon the surface of the earth with an obscure approach to the Truth of God in a man. Everyone is living a life of complacency towards the issue of the kingdom. They sing the praises of God with their lips,but their hearts is far from Him,living a care-free life as though the custodians of their existence on earth. The vision of the kingdom has gone into oblivion in the lives of men. Everyone has soon forgotten that they came from somewhere & will surely return to give account for the life they once lived on earth. The vision of the world;what to eat,drink,wear,houses to live in has waxed exceedingly great & has outgrown the vision of the kingdom in the lives of God's people. I would like to ask the reader of this blog some couple of pertinent question. "when last did you sit down to examine the quality of your relationship with God,seeking for ways to improve it?" "when last did you cry unto the Lord to deliver you from the besetting sins holding you in thraldom,hindering you from serving the God of your Age in His own way & operations?" Lastly as someone walking with the consciousness of eternity in view. "When last did you take up your Bible, walked across your street to tell someone about the Father's love for him/her. If you don't have substantial answers to this questions. Then kindly go on your knees or bow down your heads,if you're sitting down & cry unto the Lord of all creation,to restore the "vision of the kingdom" afresh into your Vision is one of the greatest spiritual force in life.

The Southern Beauty

There was a story of a young man that loved a girl from the southern part of his country. He loved her so much,that he saw her as an essential part of his life not just as a separate entity. He loved her with a special kind of love & was always seeking for ways to improve her. He prayed for her always & was always there for her. Desiring greatly,that she will come to the knowledge of who she was in God. His utmost desire was to see her fulfilled in life & ministry. This beautiful relationship continued for a season & half a season. Until the day he cleverly hinted his intentions to her about coupling with her. When she realized what it was, she repulsed him,letting him to know that she wasn't interested. He tried many times to convince her to the best of his ability, but all proved abortive. Moral of the Story: That you weren't accepted by someone,doesn't mean you're not good enough. It's simply an eye opener that you deserve the best. Never let the world cause you to become bitter In heart or make you to loose your Love life as a Christian. It's in our nature to love everyone we come across in life. We can't just help it.
Don't let them change you, from a dissipator of God's love to a monster. Keep Loving everyone you come across in life with the Love of God & see yourself transforming into the likeness of the Father. Let Love Lead

Our attention has been drawn to a news story published by an online that has become notorious for publishing fake stories. According to the story, the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has endorsed President Muhammadu Buhari for the second term in office after CAN had met with some 14 Presidential candidates in Abuja. There was nothing like that, either before, during or after the parley. At the tail end of the programme, the CAN President, His Eminence, Rev Dr Samson Ayokunle, who briefed the press, did not say any of the candidates has been endorsed.

His words: “The motive is not to take for granted the 2019 elections. 2019 Nigeria will depend on next year’s presidential election. That is, how free and fair it is going to be.

“The church cannot take the back seat in this situation because it can only prosper when Nigeria prospers. If the election is not free and fair, then, all Nigerians, including the church, will be in trouble.

“So, we decided to reach out to the presidential candidates to ask them their credentials for aspiring to the highest office in the land. Also, to interrogate their plans for all, including the church. We also brought them together to speak to their consciences so that they don’t set this nation on fire.

When asked of the outcome of the parley, Rev Ayokunle had said, “We are going to draw our conclusion after we have finished our interview.”

Speaking on President Buhari’s decline of assent to the Electoral Act amendment, CAN President said, “The Executive and the National Assembly should put their house together, whenever there is this kind of disagreement or a stalemate,  the executive and the legislature should come together as partners  in progress to mutually find a way forward. They can’t afford to play with the future of the country through this forthcoming 2019 general elections. Everything must be done to ensure that the election is free and fair.”

So, where did His Eminence inform these liars and mischief makers that CAN has endorsed President Buhari for a second term? We appeal to members of the public to beware of those who are fabricating this fake news for whatever reasons. We challenge the online platform that published this fake news to provide relevant footages and audio clip to back up their report.

Kindly help us make this known to the public through your popular and credible medium.

Thank you for your usual assistance and understanding.

Signed

Pastor Adebayo Oladeji, Special Assistant (Media & Communications)  to CAN President, His Eminence, Rev Dr Samson Ayokunle.

The Father's Assurance



The greatest assurance,I've ever gotten is knowing that the Lord Jesus is My Father. Everyday is bright & blessed because The Bright & Morning star is always with Me. I cannot do without Him. In Him I live,move & have My being. He speaks to My assurance of who He is in My life. I encourage you to come closer to Him & you will never regret you did so. He's more than I could ever ask for. Every minute of My life,I feel this upsurge of Joy springing forth from My heart. Though My present situation,may not correlate with the promises of God in My life but one thing I know for sure is this "that He's on My matter". 

A letter to My Father

Dear Dad,
       Men may not understand how far you've brought Me. I have loved thee with an exceeding great love. There  is this cord that connects your heart to mine that cannot be broken. You've always been with Me, since when I was chubby. Everyday you keep speaking  to My conversion, transformation & recreation. Everyday I see Myself conforming into Your Image & likeness. The more I know you, I see My emptiness & lapses only to realize that of a truth, I can do absolutely nothing without You. Thank you Daddy, for always been there for Me. You're the Best Dad in the whole Universe.

                                                                                                                                                                          Yours truly

The Victorious Youth

In the world of spiritual lethargy & moral decadence, the question remains "how can one scale through amidst the intense corruption"?. The Bible says in psalm 45:7 that He has anointed thee with the oil of  gladness above My fellows because I've loved righteousness & hated iniquity. What we need is the love of God to be poured afresh on our hearts. Many started zealous & dedicated, but were blown off balance along the way by the cares of this life. I crave your indulgence to return back to your first love. Because I've never seen any man, that served the Lord Jesus unreservedly & ended up a failure. It is absolutely impossible.

The Man that God will Bless

The man that God will bless,must love Him unconditionally & unreservedly. He must be a man who oozes out the love of the Father inherent in him to others around him. He is the man who has been broken by the Master & has been remoulded into the Image likeness of the Master. This is the man who feels & shares the burden of His Father. This is the man who has understood the place of God in his that God will bless,must love Him unconditionally & unreservedly. He must be a man who oozes out the love of the Father inherent in him to others around him. He is the man who has been broken by the Master & has been remoulded into the Image likeness of the Master. This is the man who feels & shares the burden of His Father. This is the man who has understood the place of God in his life. He no longer lives his own life, but has allowed the Master to live out His life in him. He's indeed a man of love,sensitive to the feelings of people around him. This is the man who goes about preaching the gospel all over the city under the scorching heat of the sun rays, not mindful of the men that laugh him to scorn. This is the man who has laid down his life for the Father & has picked it up again. This is the man who intercedes & keeps tryst with the Lord in the place of prayer for His people & lost souls not minding his personal prayer points. This is the MAN that the Lord will bless abundantly...

5 Proven & Solid Steps on how to have Total Dominion over the Spirit of Masturbation

How to be totally free from masturbation.

1. Separationđź‘«- you must do away with everyone that serves as an object of incitement i.e the opposite sex. This word "separation" seems easy but this is one of the difficult part to becoming totally free from it's snare.

2. Word- Always readđź“– & meditate on God's Word. Study at least one chapter of the Bible per day.
Warningđźš«- Never rush your studyđź“ť of God's Word.

3. Evangelism- This is one of the crucial aspect of obtaining everlasting freedom over it. True freedom is only obtained in evangelism. I'm not talking about sharing of tracts,but in verbal preaching of the Gospel of Jesus to people you come across,especially to those objects of lusts & inordinate affection such as your boy/girlfriend deliberately & concisely. 
Note - The more time you give to evangelism, the greater your freedom.

4. Music - You must do a thorough shortlisting of your music album, screening away all those songs that deliberately or unconsciously  reminds you of those who you've separated from or of your past. Avoid songs that have no spiritual relevance to the growth of God's Word in you.

5. Meditation- Constantly play musics that tune your heart to Heaven's frequency. Soak yourself in intense worship & pray along as you do so

My love for Him is immeasurable & incomprehensible. He's love weakens Me & strengthens Me at the same time. Oh how I love you Jesus. Even if the whole world forsake you..Lord I will never leave nor forsake you. Father pls,make Me the perfect expression of your love for mankind,that men may see, feel & touch your love in My life. Take total control of My life completely & do what only you can do in My life in Jesus Christ Name
