It is important that we know that no minister of God is exempted from mistakes, the mistakes however can be minimized through the operation of wisdom and a teachable heart.

I have taught times and times again that in any Ministry, the first set of sons and daughters there can only survive under the one leading them by allowing forgiveness reign in their hearts.

Here are few terrible mistakes that ministers of God must run away from, many church members may not be able to say it, but it doesn’t change the fact that it hurts them.

1) Don’t make the mistake of bringing people’s personal issues that they brought to you on the basis of trust and respect to the pulpit while ministering.
Don’t fall to the temptation of thinking that they are not on seat, those who are on seat and also know about the issue will call to tell them after the meeting. When a trusted priest brings up the people’s matter on the pulpit to either scorn them or teach others lessons from it, it Pierces the people’s hearts and make them vulnerable to offenses. It is betrayal, it is abuse of power and sacred position of authority.

2) Don’t correct personal issues that you could discuss with a person personally on the altar with the thought that the fellow will understand better, it is cowardise to do so, it doesn’t show strength, it shows weaknesses all over.
Personal issues should be dealt with personally, and that for the congregation should be dealt with congregationaly.

3) Teach people to be faithful and loyal, but don’t fall into the pitfall of putting them under the pressure of staying around you in the days of plenty because you have been there in their days of lack. I have had to pray about this particular one very well, and I have had to conclude that anytime people have to stay around a Ministry for anything else other than love, then the rest becomes manipulations. Should people do good back to a people that has supported them when they were not strong enough? yes! But they should know that they are not under any pressure to do so, it is only good to do so.

4) Avoid the mistake of coming to the pulpit to preach ministers who have offended you than God’s word itself. Preach the scripture, stay consistently with it, if you do so, you will stay longer and relevant around the things of Ministry.
In all cases, it is better to be quiet on a subject matter than to vent in anger and offenses.

No minister of God should ever leave the people wondering who he was referring to after preaching.

No minister of God should ever leave the people wondering “who has offended pastor again”

5) I have observed and discovered that Ministry and ministers who live all their lives dealing with petty issues don’t grow. Some issues are to be completely ignored while the parties involved settle their issues amongst themselves. The moment the clergy gets himself roped in every matter, soon the people will begin to see him as being biased, particularly the parties that are falling short in his judgements.

6 ) Avoid the temptation of using prophesy to match make members as husband and wife. I have encouraged Christians over and over again that they are never to be trapped in a web where someone is trying to prophesying a spouse into their lives, it will always backfire.
Dear minister, even when you have an incline that two people are meant for each other, kindly let them pray and discover on their own, it is more honorable that way.

Lastly, avoid the mistake of indiscriminate relationship between opposite sex. Dear male pastor, please stop asking ladies to come see you at August hours of the day, kindly resist the temptation of falling in love randomly. The fact that you are anointed is enough reason for many ladies to like you and want you for a future partner, kindly ask God for wisdom to handle situations like this. Make your relationship public, don’t refer to your spouse as your sister, you are not Abraham.

Please note this, at some points of greatness, it is possible that even some of your so called friends may not be able to handle it, kindly remain focused and humble.

I hope this helps someone, I hope this helps the work of God in someone’s hands, I hope it is received sincerely in humility love.

With love.

MENTORING DELIVERS YOU FROM MISTAKES -My Encounter with Bishop David Oyedepo

By Pastor Sam Adeyemi

I have enjoyed the benefits of mentoring and I will tell you it’s preservation of destiny. Sometimes when I remember some of the conversations that I’ve had with Dr David Oyedepo, I laugh all by myself and I’m just grateful that I was not left to myself.

One day, our church was still very young and we were searching for a property to move into. So we found one, we had not paid yet. When I went to him and told him:

Pastor Sam: ‘Oh we found a place (the relocation from opposite Lagos State Government Secretariat, Alausa to 71, Oregun Road) and we are about to pay for it, and infact as soon as we move in there, we have some strategies that we are going to execute for growth.

Dr Oyedepo: Fine, like what?

Pastor Sam: As soon as we move in, the first thing we are going to do is to do 21 days prayer and fasting.

Dr Oyedepo: Good! But wait a minute. What is the longest fast that you and the church members have gone on?

Pastor Sam: 7 days. I’ve led them on prayer and fasting for 7 days.

Dr Oyedepo: Good. How far is the new place from where you are? Will people have to take commercial transport? Maybe get on a bus before they get there?

Pastor Sam: Yes.

Dr Oyedepo: Okay, so the likelihood is that some people around where you are now may not be able to go with you. They will be unable to pay because it will cost them money?

Pastor Sam: Yes.

Dr Oyedepo: Okay, what will you say has been the major attraction for your church up till now?

Pastor Sam: It’s the Word, it’s the teaching sir.

Dr Oyedepo: Good. So when you move into that new place , you will be trying to get some of your old members to come along and you will be trying to get some new people from the new environment to join you?

Pastor Sam: Yes.

Dr Oyedepo: If I were you, what I would do for 21 days is what has been the major attraction of the Church. To add 21 days prayer and fasting with the inconvenience of coming to your new location…I’m not sure that’s going to be a fantastic strategy.

You know what? As he was saying that, I was smiling. I didn’t tell him what I was thinking. I was thinking to myself…why was I thinking like that?

Mentoring delivers you from mistakes.
Mentoring delivers you from ignorance.

My Dear Bae

Oluwanifemi Daniel -Olawande
The Queen of The Fire Nation Dynasty
The Female Kingdom Warrior

I met you on October 6 on 2017 at a village outreach, you were so crazy about God, you loved God, moving around looking for how we can terrorize demons in the village, your tongues was so territorial and your voice so angelic.

When I saw you and interrogated you, I knew I met her already, I knew she is just the one.
I asked her a question, what is your purpose?
She replied my purpose is to set women on Fire for God.
I screamed, I said she is the one

I went into prayers and I came around October 13 saying I think I am going to marry you
I met with my pastors and mentors
December 8, 2017 I proposed

6 months later on May 5 2018 to be precise, she went to the altar with me to become my wife.

Just 6 months, no PHD in courtship, believe me, it was as if we had met and were friends for 10 years.

PMO is an enigma
A wife indeed
Humble to a fault, submissive chai

She is prayerful and firefull
You wake up in the night only to see my babe scabashing.

You taught me that You can slay and still fry demons

Thanks for following me to do the will of God
Thanks for allowing me to be me
Thanks for believing me
Thanks for managing my finances for me

My ministry and life multiplied when you came in.
My spiritual life doubled when you came in
Anointing increased when you came in.

People often say, when a man of God gets married, fire reduces but when you came in fire enter a new level.

You are not just an addition but multiplication.
My fuel full baby.

She is my Assistant HolySpirit, I can tell you, if she says it, the Lord has spoken, so sensitive.

Thanks for giving me that beautiful flaming Zion.

Years ago my music-minister (Adam Mtsweni) and I were shopping for a new keyboard. It was at noon that we entered a big music-shop in Johannesburg/South Africa. There was a salesman, but he took no notice of us and Adam and I tried out all the keyboards. Suddenly the salesman appeared. He seemed to be in a different mood, something like in a state of shock and said to me “Sir, I can see Jesus in your eyes!” What? The Holy Spirit had entered that shop. We forgot all about the keyboard and had a revival instead. But when I was walking back to my car I kept saying “Lord, I will never understand. How can a total stranger walk up to me and say ‘Sir, I can see Jesus in your eyes!’ Suddenly the Holy Spirit spoke to me and said “No problem! Jesus lives in your heart and sometimes HE LIKES TO LOOK OUT OF YOUR WINDOWS.” I laughed and cried. What glorious truth. I got the point! Years later I met the wife of the salesman who told me, that her husband had followed Jesus for the rest of his life – and went to be with the Lord. I trust that this little testimony blesses you.


Dead Man on Funeral Day raised by Pastor Alph Lukau (24th February)

What just happened 😱 A family brought their dead son straight from the mortuary enroute to his funeral and asked that my Prophet pray for him because they have FAITH. He died on Friday and today is Sunday! JESUS CHRIST IS ALIVE. The man of God commanded life into his body and God raised him from the dead. The man is ALIVE. ALIVE. ALIVE. He walked and ran and ATE FOOD!!!!!!!!!! JESUS YOU ALONE ARE GOD.

“What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived”
A dead person came back to LIFE!

There is something, I see as I fulfilling the Mandate of GOD on this Earth.
You see… I don’t just want to pull down strongholds of darkness, I want to do it without Stress…
I don’t want to come out of my CAVE and still beg for bread.
I don’t want to wield so much Power but yet, I and the host of darkness know that there’s a level of wickedness I can’t defeat …..
I don’t want to be known all over the world based on a GRACE that I carry.. Yet, there’s this kind of situation inflicted by the devil that I can’t handle.. that I have no choice but to yield to natural solutions.
I don’t want to miss out of any thing that the Power of GOD can solve in a Minute just because I didn’t press enough.
I don’t want people to Respect me so much… yet my spirit knows that I’m stagnant.
I don’t want to carry GOD and get to a point in my Spiritual Walk where I can’t move forward in my Spiritual Pursuit because of a part of my LIFE that I couldn’t sacrifice.
I don’t want to worship a GOD whose FIRE uproots mountains and leaves them without trace of existence, but yet demons would still work in the buildings that surround me.
I don’t ever want to Sing or Pray and the Earth wouldn’t shift.
I don’t want to get to a Point where I begin to ignore GOD’S VOICE because millions already heed mine.
I don’t want to be Famous and yet, the GOD I carry only heals 26 people at a Time.





I get several mails daily from young folks in this country and beyond asking for the things God has done to me and in me that has brought me this far. Well, I don’t deceive myself, I still have a very long way to go, I am just starting.

I have quietly observed many young Ministers and I have seen reasons why majority are not doing well in ministry, I have also seen reasons why majority are injuring themselves and their anointing. I will highlight few points today, I hope they bless you.

1) Many young ministers don’t know the boundary between personal temperament and the requirements of discipline in ministry. This applies mostly to those who are jovial, they play to the point that once in a while people forget the fact that they are anointed. Many have gone so far that they now use their social media platforms for frivolities. When you do these things, you put the people God has sent you to in danger. Don’t joke to the point whereby people will have to walk past you to look for someone else doing the same thing you are doing but more serious than you. For the sake of the people, reduce unnecessary things.

2) Many young ministers downplay the role of SPIRITUAL FATHERING in ministry. From personal experience I have come to see that anywhere a father is absent, destiny is at stake. You will see how powerful the role of a father is both in the family and in ministry if you take time to look well into it. You believe that only Jesus is the one you are to be accountable to, then you will have to reach out to Jesus to come commission your ministry, to lay hands on you at special seasons of your life, etc. Those who have no father in ministry get lost without a trace.
You have thousands of instructors (mentors) but you can only have ONE FATHER. Be accountable, and know that your Spiritual Father is your Spiritual Father, he is not your bestie! His role in your life is to help you get direction and safeguard all you stand for, don’t confuse things. You are to submit not agree. You may not necessarily agree, your sonship will be tested when you don’t agree and yet you have to submit.

3) Many change Fathers like underwear.
For this class of people, I have noticed that they don’t do anything significant at the end of the day. They move with every trending minister, they duplicate every new pastor’s pattern, they are confused.
Discern who your father is; submit, be loyal, be accountable, be reachable.

4) Many young ministers downplay the role of character and integrity.

Charisma announces People, but character keeps them where they have been announced and beyond. When I see a young minister messing around with girls, I understand that he doesn’t know what he is doing to his future and what God has committed into his hands. Never forget this; the only thing that can be hidden in life is what has not been said or done.
When people’s promotion is being discussed, it is only their character that will be there to speak for them.
You will frustrate Grace if hands are laid on you constantly and yet you are doing what is contrary to the workings of Grace.
You claim not to be sleeping with the girl under your Ministry, but you only kiss once in a while, excuse me sir you need help, quick one.

5) Many struggle with Low self esteem.
When new doctrines are flying, the first set of people who will be carried away are those who build their Ministry on validation of men. There are people shouting fire everywhere today who know nothing about these things, but because it is trending, they also want to feel among. Guard your heart, work on your esteem, else you will fall out as time goes by.

6) Many don’t know that Spiritual FATHERING is not by big names it is by connection and revelation. Many have severed God’s plan for them because the fellow they call their father doesn’t even know them, they only listen to his tape and they feel that is enough. How can somebody father you only through tapes, was that How Moses fathered Joshua ?

7) Most talk about prayer, only few pray.
I have noticed that most young people will rather take their time to listen to messages and read books than to pray. Ministry is not fast food, if it will last, special time must be taken in the place of prayer. Any man of God that is a product of quick fix can’t be used for any special assignment. Quit seeking validation from men and go on your knees where God makes men. You have access to God, use it!

If truly you want to go far, then you must not joke with instructions and corrections. This is a corrective teaching, and I know many young people are found in this mould, take it, sit down, digest it and correct what should be corrected.

The Genesis of my conversion started in the University of Nsukka, I had a room mate called Chinwe, this lady loved praises, she will sing like this; *come and join me sing Halleluyah* I was always looking for a way to deal with her, one day while coming from the House fellowship, she kept her Bible on my bed and I asked who kept the Bible on my Bed, she said sorry, Binta, I carried the Bible and I tore the Bible, then I beat her. She took a piece of the Bible and cried to the heavens and called my name three times, Binta Jalingo, Binta Jalingo, Binta Jalingo, this Bible you tore, you will use it to preach the Gospel. Then I slapped her again, I said, it is your mother and your father that will preach the Gospel, she said, may the Lord have mercy on you, Binta. After seven years of the spoken words, I got converted on the 25th of September 1999. I was in the bedroom in Shehu’s palace, because I got married to the younger brother of the Shehu of Bornu. I was born into the Muri kingdom, which is mostly Fulani. My mother, Hajia Aminat Jalingo, is of the Kutep tribe. Contrary to the Islamic tradition of multiple wives, my father married and maintained only my mother. I am the fifth of nine children. My father lived in many parts of Nigeria, serving in the Army till 1996. My mother also worked with the Nigerian Medical Corps until her retirement in 1992.

I attended the Army Children School, Ikeja Cantonment, Lagos, completed my secondary education at Government Girls’ College Enugu. I studied Mass Communication at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN). After my studies, in 1996, I worked as Programme Producer/Director with the Nigeria Television Authority (NTA), Yola. I got married on April 27, 1997 and God blessed us with a set of twin boys – Hassan and Hussain.

I never believed that I needed salvation for whatever reason, because every Moslem is convinced that Muhammad was the last Prophet in the long line of those that Allah had sent before. The Islamic Hadith (Mishkat) speaks of about 124,000 people who lived at various times in history. Twenty-eight of them are mentioned by name and most are found in the Bible. Since each of them was sent with a word from Allah to warn the respective people not to practice idolatry, to live righteously and to consider the coming Day of Judgement, it is perceived by Moslems that Isa (Jesus), the one to whom is given the greatest prominence in the Qur’an, was like Ibrahim (Abraham), Musa (Moses) and most others sent to the Jews. Therefore, when I heard Christians call Him, Lord, I became mad at them.

As a young girl, in the Secondary School and even as an undergraduate, I would delightfully pack copies of the Holy Bible and take them to Kaduna for destruction, I thought the Bible was demonic. Many are still doing it today, I became the Vice President of the youth wing of the Jamaatu Nasril Islam. Very often, I saw Christians happy in every situation; yet, my success at school, which gave me the job at NTA, and brightened my chances of a good husband, could not bring me such peace and happiness. Several people had talked to me about Christianity, but to me then, Muhammad was the final seal of the prophets. This was my pride as a Fulani girl who saw herself in the greatest religion of all time.

Qu’ran does not teach salvation in Jesus Christ, but it gives Him the greatest prominence. The wonderful statements in the Qu’ran are enough to compel one to search more about Him. The name Jesus (Isa) occurs about 25 times in the Qu’ran, and the title Messiah is used 93 times.

I hated anything that had to do with Christianity. I was always happy seeing a Christian unhappy and enjoyed hearing that Christians were suffering, but on the 25th of September 1999, I was caught in a web. The day before, we attended the Friday prayers and all went well. At about 1:30am suddenly, an unusually bright light appeared in the bedroom with a mighty wind blowing and throwing all the pictures and other valuables to the ground. My husband and I became afraid. He got up from bed, brought out charms, known in Hausa as “Hayaki”. He placed it on the ground, got hot charcoal and placed the charm on it, but the mighty wind threw it all down.

Before we could make out anything, a voice thundered, saying: “You have been baptized by the Holy Spirit. Go and be “Tabitha” unto my people”. I asked my husband if he could understand what the voice was saying, but he said that he did not hear any voice. He later concluded that I belonged to a secret cult, which accounted for my hearing voice that he could not hear. He thought that I wanted to sacrifice him or our set of twins. He got angry, took our twins to the guestroom and abandoned me in the bedroom. I was very worried and couldn’t sleep. In the morning, again, I heard the voice saying: “Tell your husband that you have accepted Jesus as your personal Lord and Saviour”. I said “No, I can’t. What has a Fulani got to do with Jesus Christ”, I thought that demons were after me. The thing happened again on 28th and 29th, and each time, there was an invitation to “come and serve”. So I told my husband that I would go to Church the following Sunday. “Not in this house”, he retorted, He might have received my word with shock, yet joy and peace flooded my heart at that time. I knew what I was passing through and it would be disastrous for me not to do what God would want me to do for Him.

On Saturday, after speaking to him about it, I went ahead and bought for myself the first Bible I ever bought or read in my life, and hid it under my box. The next day, Sunday, I picked up my Bible, got into my car and drove to the nearby Baptist Church.

After the service, I came back and met my husband at home. I greeted him but he asked me where I was coming from; I wanted to lie, but heard a voice saying ‘what were you taught in the church today?’ It was “Ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free” So, I told him that I was coming from the Church. He got up in anger, gave me a beating, snatched the Bible from me and wanted to tear it but I told him of the danger of tearing the Bible, so he stopped. He was shocked because he knew that it was my role in the past. So he dropped the Bible in anger and left till the evening. I brought out food for him as usual, but he kicked the food away and warned his sister that no one should eat the food I cooked in the house again for he had declared me an infidel and as a result, I would have nothing to do with the family, even with my own kids. The next day, he went to fetch my father from Makurdi. As I welcomed my father, he too, started beating me with his military belt and boots, until I was unconscious and was taken to the hospital where I stayed for three days. Wonderfully, on the third day, at about 2 am, the Lord appeared to me. I noticed a touch on my feet and I woke up trying to see who it was that touched me, but the face was shinning like the sun in such a way that I could not see his face. I only looked at Him from His feet to the chest. I was afraid and screamed for help. One of the nurses came, prayed with me and asked me not to be afraid again. As I said amen to her prayers, I began to speak in tongues for about three hours. I was saying things they could not understand. Some of them thought I was mad but a psychiatric doctor who was called in, confirmed that I was normal.

The figure appeared again. This time He said unto me, “Be bold, for this is temporary: you will overcome the temptation”. The fourth day, I was discharged from the hospital. On getting home, my husband gave me a divorce letter, which I collected with joy and told him. ‘I am married to Jesus.’

After that, I packed my things, including my two cars, kept them in someone’s house and travelled to Lagos. My husband took my twins to Saudi Arabia. Not done yet, my father had the man that I had kept my belongings in his house arrested on the grounds that he had abducted me from my husband’s house. On hearing that, I returned to Jalingo and arranged his release. Then, my father collected my cars and other belongings claiming that he bought them for me as wedding presents.

In trying to make me renounce my faith in Christ, the Management of the Nigeria Television Authority (NTA), Yola, had my appointment terminated, under pressure from my husband. My father and some Islamic fanatics took me to one Alhaji’s house in Jalingo and there chained my feet and my hands. After seven days, I was released, with a threat of death, if I went to Church again.

My mother arranged for my uncle, her elder brother to reconcile my father and me. As we went talking, my father got angry, picked up his gun and shot at me. As God would have it, the little movement I made at the sight of a gun overturned the seat where I was sitting and I was pushed to the ground. The gun sounded but the bullets did not enter me but passed through the chair and to the wall. Everybody was alarmed, my mother started weeping that he had killed her only daughter. Later, my mother advised me to go and stay with her elder brother. Being a moslem, he too was unhappy with me and made life difficult. Once, he threatened to kill me with a cutlass so I left his house for Lagos and later, Maiduguri.

I was denied my rights in the family; my father had me thrown into prison on false allegation. He had initially gone to a Sharia court but I protested against that since I am now a Christian. So, he took me to a Magistrate court at Hadeja. The Magistrate ordered that I be remanded in prison for calling my father, my neighbour. I was in detention for six months without trial and bail until some Christians on prison visitation, learnt that I was there for becoming a Christian. The matter was reported to the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) Chairman who wrote a petition that led to my proper trial. The Magistrate sentenced me to two years imprisonment plus a fine of five thousand Naira. One Christian Women Fellowship in the area paid the fine while I was taken to prison. That was September 5, 2000. Some inmates asked me to appeal but I told them, confidently, that the Lord Jesus would do a great Appeal for me. At midnight, I prayed: ‘Lord, I want you to deliver me from this prison before December. If you don’t, the people will ask me, where is your God?’ I reminded him of how He answered Hezekiah. On October 2, 2000, less than a month after my imprisonment, a letter came from Abuja ordering my release and I was set free. My prison experiences brought me closer to God that I developed more faith in God’s ability to see me through.

After two months, I decided to go and share the Lord Jesus with my grandparents. The moslem youths were looking for me everywhere, to kill me. They hid me until I couldn’t be hidden. I fled to the bush for four days. On the fourth night, I woke up with a snake beside me. That day, I told God that I wanted to go back to Islam. I couldn’t continue like that in the bush but He quickly reprimanded me. He asked “Upon all the sufferings you’ve been through, you still want to go back? If I didn’t shut the mouth of the snake, wouldn’t it bite you while you slept? I repented and told him that I was sorry; I will never go back to Egypt”.

I found out that God actually took me to prison to teach me some things. One was to read the Bible and two, because of a female Christian warder who left and married a Moslem and God shut her womb. In the prison, God told me in a dream that she was going to have a baby. When I told her, she became angry, tortured me, called me names, but I kept praying for her, that the name of the Lord be glorified since I had said the Lord told me. Later, she actually had the baby, and that converted her and her husband. Eight moslems in the prison gave their lives to Christ. They were baptized in the Holy Ghost before I left. Seeing what the Lord used me to do in the prison, I knew that I would do better outside. One day, some moslem youths came and kidnapped me. They laid me on the ground, raised their cutlasses to kill me but their hands remained hanging in the air. That happened to three of them and the others fled. They were later taken to the police who wanted them killed but I told them it was the Lord’s battle not theirs. I told them that I had forgiven them. As I was leaving, they asked for their hands to be restored. I said “In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, let your hands come down” and their cutlasses dropped. Today, they are Christians and live with me. On another occasion, another group of moslem youths kidnapped me. They were taking me to Sokoto. On the way, scorpions emerged and started to sting them. They dropped me, begged me and even gave me money to take me back home. Yet on another occasion, they kidnapped me and wanted to inject me with poisonous material but they couldn’t find those materials and had to let me go.

The Bible says we must start from our Jerusalem. Moslems and Fulanis are my Jerusalem. Many of them live in ignorance, not having heard of Jesus till today. And if I am one of the fortunate ones that God brought out, I need to go out and say something to them. That is why I say I would fight the cause with my blood. I am not limiting myself to Nigeria; I intend to go to the Middle East, planting a church in Saudi Arabia where my children are. I tell God that my children in Saudi Arabia are Ambassadors of Christ and they must become Pastors in Saudi Arabia.

So, any time I hear a moslem is converted somewhere and is persecuted, I take them in. I have forty-nine under my roof right now. They call me “mama”. The oldest is eighty-nine years. She became a Christian and her children threw her from upstairs to die, but God preserved her. A Pastor found her and brought her to the centre. Some come with their ears cut off, others are stripped naked etc. I pray for people to join me in this crusade. Thank God. He is raising men among the coverts in the centre and in my family.

My immediate elder brother who is a soldier has become a Christian. My mother became a Christian since 2002. My elder brothers who wanted me dead or back to Islam are now Christians. One of them, a Senior Lecturer at the University of Maiduguri had to relocate to Imo State because of persecution.

I testify that Jesus is Lord. Some people came to attack us. The first time they came, they saw a pool of blood: the house became a pool of blood. The second time they came, the house became plain land. The third time, they saw ocean. The last time, the house became a pillar of fire. Sometime later, something happened that led to their arrest and the Commissioner of Police sent for me. On getting there, the police brought the criminals who said that I didn’t know them but they knew me. They were all Moslems, some of them from Republic of Niger. They then narrated how they had to attack me, but I was delivered by the Lord. That day, the Commissioner of Police lined up his men in the office and asked me to pray for them.

Instead of leaving me alone, my former husband began to persecute me. While leading some assassins to my place to kill me, the vehicle in which they were travelling was involved in an accident. He, alone died in the hospital after confessing that he wanted me dead for I was bringing shame to his name. It pains me because both of us were in the same room the day I heard the voice. After that I prevented him from destroying a copy of the Bible, something I used to enjoy doing. He knew how violent I was, destroying Christendom. He should have learnt a lesson from my conversion and repented. That is how many others die without repentance even though they are exposed to the gospel. The good Lord who is always my Shield and Protector will always save and hide me in His shadow. My life is in God’s hand.”

No wonder!!!! We’ve not been getting results….
Arghhh…. Activity can be dangerously wasteful when we act without understanding of the original purpose?
When would we get drunk?
When would we start walking and working under the influence of the spirit…
How do we go to the presence of GOD and commune with HIM, for hours and come back the same… Error!!!!
How can we Pray so much, and still be Powerless?
Why do we lack the urge to Act out in the capacity of GOD?
When would we get drunk?
When will our head Knock under the influence of GOD’S WINE?
Didn’t you see?
Acts 2:4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
Acts 2:13 Others mocking said, These men are full of new wine.
Men would know….
You won’t be yourself…
Have you ever been under the influence of the Spirit?
Has GOD poured out HIS Spirit upon you?
Brother and Sister, You cannot fulfil the prophecy of this times, till YOU ARE DRUNK?
Peter the shy, Changed… the first time HE drank!!!
These were the men that Encountered the wine of the Spirit first….
See, what it did to them?
You think you can bring 3000 people to Christ just because you’ve prayed for 24 hours…No!!!!
You must get drunk!!!!
Tomguing is not the Same as Drinking… It’s just a Channel…. You must be getting full as you Speak…. unless you are just spreading out your hands and legs and shouting up and down….without consuming any bottle.
That was the commencement of the prophecy… Peter came out to let them know what just started…
Acts 2:17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:
