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:

I used to take this man a little serious until I saw his interview with Timaya recently…

He told Timaya that God gave him the mandate to bring revolution to the church in Nigeria…

That God called him to come and stop people from paying tithe in their churches…

And yet, Timaya told him to leave people alone to be paying their tithe…

Every interlude they had, he was using every means to make Timaya hate all the General Overseers in Nigeria…

Yet, Timaya was telling him to his face that no matter what he tells him, he will never stop paying his tithe, to Winners Chapel that is his church…

Every time he raised that antagonistic voice, Timaya replied him very sternly to stop disturbing him and others who have made up their minds to keep praying tithe…

That no pastor is forcing them and that if they are not seeing anything in it, they would have stopped long ago…

He was bust quoting scripture while Timaya was shutting him down…

Timaya even told him that it is not his business what pastors do with tithe…

That his own duty is to obey the Word of God and whatever the pastors likes let them do with it…

Daddy freeze and his wife began to preach to him to stop paying tithe, that he should instead use the money to be buying things for the less privelleged..

Timaya told the both of them that he too goes to Motherless Babies homes often. Spending hundreds of thousands on them…

Yet, that doesn’t stop him from paying his tithe…

At a point, I began to pity him and his wife because Timaya didn’t take it easy with them any time they tried to insult pastors or talk down on tithing…

Daddy Freeze said he is a man of God…

He went to visit a young man like Timaya that might not have a steady relationship with Christ…

Daddy Freeze celebrated his beautiful house…

Daddy Freeze congratulated him for his achievements in the music industry in Nigeria…

Daddy Freeze asked him about his next plans…

But the man of God, Daddy Freeze never asked Timaya to repent…

He never asked him where he spend his eternity if he dies now…

He never asked Timaya what will happen to all the awards he has won and he will soon win if he sleeps and not wake up again…

I didn’t hear him ask Timaya what he will tell God he did with his gift if he js using the gift He Gabe yo him to be singing lewd songs and making nude videos…

The only message he preached to Timaya was to stop paying tithe…

So, Daddy Freeze will be happy to see people stop paying tithe even if they have to go to hell?…

Can someone tell Daddy Freeze to take it easy?
Can someone help me tell him and those like him who are online everyday insulting men of God that they dont have the love of God inside them?…

They might have all the verses in the scriptures for arguments..

But someone should tell them to go back to God and ask Him for an encounter…

If you have encountered God, when you see a sinner, you will be more concern with where he will spend eternity than what he does with his money…

What kind of revolution did he take to Timayas house that will make him only insult men of God and not to remind that young man that a day is coming when God will demand from us all what we did with our lives? …

98 percent of people joining them to insult men of God will make hell if they die now…

Instead of them to preach the gospel of reconciliation with the platform God has given them, all they do is insulting men they will never get to their levels, even if they live here 500years …

This is my official Facebook account…

If they like, I can write down my passwords here for everyone to see it…

So that they don’t bother hacking into my inbox to look for information to blackmail me…

Since God told them to use the weapons of blackmail to bring revolution to the church …

Jesus used meekness missed with prayer to raise men that established His principles…

But they want to use insults and arguments to work for the God that told us to follow peace with all men…

Good riddance to them…

But the last time I checked, More people still pay their tithes faithfully, even with all the insults and noises…

I will be here to see how far this dance of carnality will go…

If you can…

Let us pray!…

‘I Am Now Born Again’ declares Snoop Dogg

Snoop Dogg, whose real name is Calvin Broadus Jr., caused quiet a stir in Hollywood after declaring himself to be a born-again Christian. He recently just released his first gospel album “Bible of Love.”

The album features a wide range of other gospel artists, including Fred Hammond, The Clark Sisters, Pastor John P. Kee and Marvin Sapp.

He first dropped the news of a gospel album during an interview with Beats 1 Radio, where he said “I’m working on a gospel album. I need to do it now.”

He added: “It’s always been on my heart. I just never got around to it because I always be doing gangsta business and doing this and doing that. But I just feel like it’s been on my heart too long.”

Many have been incredibly critical of the religious switch and his decision to put out a gospel album. In 2009 he announced that he had joined the Nation of Islam, then in 2012 he became a Rastafarian. Now, he claims to be a born-again Christian.

However this isn’t the first time that Snoop has talked about Christianity. In 2016 he posted a video on his Instagram account that featured him singing along to the gospel song “I’d Rather Have Jesus.”

His fans were thrilled to see him profess his faith in God. “With the platform you have, imagine how many people you will reach with the gospel message of Salvation! Come on now! Give our heavenly Father glory through your rap skills Snoop!” a fan wrote.

Snoop Dogg responded to his critics and those who doubted his conversion at the 33rd Annual Stellar Awards held in Las Vegas. After he performed at the gospel music event, he said “The devil is a liar. I thought the church was supposed to welcome sinners.”

“If the church was full of saints it wouldn’t be right. So, if you find someone trying to find their way back home, the natural thing to do is to be warm welcoming, open your arms and say ‘Brother, we accept you for who you are and what you’re going through. Come as you are. We know you’ve been doing wrong and you want to get right and we want to help you get right.’”

“We’re not gonna’ throw stones on you when you’re trying to get right and walking back into the church house. That’s what’s running people out the church right now as we speak.”

“The only negativity I get is when a question is asked, But I have never been confronted with anybody in the gospel world,” the rapper says.

At the end of the interview Snoop adds, “What about you? Have you checked your status? Are you going to heaven? Why are you judging me? How much have you done for the Lord?”

When you take a deeper dive into the album, you can find an impressive amount of Christian theology in his lyrics that show is journey through the faith. From beginning to end the album is a beautiful testimony from Snoop encountering God’s love in his own life.

Relevant writer Mai Perkins took a deeper dive into his album and wrote: “He’s not selling prosperity Gospel. He’s not shaming people for where they’ve been, considering how far out there and out of control he’s been. (And he’s been OUT there!)…He’s simply sharing his relatable experiences as a tremendously flawed character who happens to deeply love God. At the same time, he’s providing an environment for others to feel comfortable enough to do the same.”

Religion has changed Snoop’s life completely, from his view on the gangster lifestyle to guns. Snoop even said that religion changed the way he thinks of women. Before, he would have no trouble disrespecting women in his songs.

“Because I was making music for me, speaking from my perspective,” he explained. “My music represented that, until I got to the point where I wanted to show love and appreciation for the woman.”

Snoop also made the song “No Guns Allowed” which features his daughter Cori B.

“We keep hearing about schools getting shot up, venues being shot up, public places being shot up, and we have to address that. Who better to do it than me because I come from the gangsta lifestyle, carrying a gun every day of the week lifestyle?” he said.

I used to answer hate with hate. Like if you hate me, I hate you more. But now I answer hate with love,” he said.

Evidences of a weak prayer altar are

1. Checking social media in the morning before you pray.

2. You can only pray well when in Church and during prayer meetings

3. When you can only pray in the morning after your belly is full of food

4. When prayer becomes boring to you

Someone will say, pastor there is no time sir,

My response is do you have time to eat?
Do you have time to go to toilet?
Do you have time to watch film?
Do you have time to check Facebook, Instagram and Twitter?

Your problem is not time but acute laziness and lack of priority.

I am sorry for offending you.

Pastor How do I Pray?

The way to pray by praying

Pastor How do I stay long in Prayers?

Learn the act of intersession, Before you start, get a list of people, be burdened about them and pray for them
If you have ten people and you pray for them 5 minutes each then you will be able to stay 50 minutes
Then pray in tongues

I see a burning generation
