#My personal encounter with SARs.
I Was on my way to Ibadan for a ministration this faithful Sunday morning (a few months ago) and out of the blues, this SARs operational vehicle just pulled out of it's lane and started driving at breakneck speed against traffic and before I Image
could swerve, they ran into the side of my car and broke the side mirror and drove off. I stopped in the middle of the road trying to process how law enforcement agents could be so unruly, inconsiderate and foolish. (Note, they were not in pursuit of any offender. They pulled
out because traffic wasn't moving at their pace.)

Now, backbl to my encounter...Before, I could finish processing what just happened, I saw them right in front of my car with guns corked. Two of them alighted from their vehicle racing towards my car and, suddenly slowed down
and approached me with caution. (Wondered why)

The following conversation then ensued.

Me - Hello officers

SARs - So, because you are a pastor, you think you can drive anyhow abi?

Me- (in shock) I beg your pardon..you guys drove recklessly, broke my side mirror and you are
here trying hard to intimidate or browbeat me to submission?

SARs - Pastor, respect yourself and come down.

Me -i will not. (Almost forgotten I was going to Ibadan for a ministration).

SARs - IsOk, you have to pay for our broken side mirror (Apparently, their side mirror
was broken from the impact)

Me - laughing. Are you serious?

SARs - Yes sir, or we arrest you for reckless driving.

Me - Ok, no problem. I heard the Holy Spirit instructing me to pay them. I handed over the N2k with me to the one leaning on the driver's side of my car and
said to all of them, "there are people you harass and draw consequences.

I drove off and to my utmost surprise, the N2k I gave the SARs officer (leaning on the side of my car) was found again on the mat of my car, beside the car seat just the way I folded it. Apparently, the
dropped from his hands and never knew.

How they knew I was a pastor is still a mystery to me as I wasn't in any pastor's regalia or paraphernalia.

I tried to imagine if the pastor thing had not come up...I would probably have been shot, harassed, brutalized etc.
It may look ordinary, but, many have been shot, maimed or killed for lesser encounters.

They have without a doubt outlived their usefulness.

It's no longer a cry for reform, it's a cry to disband them. People are more afraid of Stars than they are of armed robbers.
They have a despicable outlook, dressed and looking like rebels. Their sight even scares people these days as their dressing is unbecoming of men in uniform.

You should lend your voice too.

"The Devil is a liar" shouted his wife as she tried to turn on the car.

"How is the Devil a liar? What has the Devil done this time?" He asked his wife as he sat on the passenger seat. She was to drive today
"Well, we've run out fuel and we need to get to the Church event quickly. I am preaching today and the Devil is trying to frustrate me. The Devil is a liar" she said then declared some Bible verses.

He laughed and looked to the side.
"What are you laughing at?" She asked him turning to face him.

"Why are you making the Devil famous?" He asked her.

She looked at him surprised. Giving him that spiritual face.

"Honey, the Devil is not to blame for the low fuel, we are. u forgot to go to the petrol station

#satan is well organized...yes, I said so without reservations...
When Jesus asked , what is your name in the book of Mark 5:9 KJV
And he asked him, What is thy name? And he answered, saying, My name is Legion: for we are many.
Note... d demon(s)responded "my name is legion, for we are many",
we are a Regiment,
we match together,
we are orderly.
Satan has a highly organized & effective army & this is b/c, his agents or demons are not disorganized as we erroneously think when they come against u & I.
When Satan matches with his demons they all match with a "spirit" of unity.
they accused Jesus of casting out Satan in Satan's name..Luke 11:17-18 KJV
But he, knowing their thoughts, said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; & a house divided

*Luke 16:20-21 KJV*
And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores,
[21] *And desiring to be fed with the crumbs* which fell from the rich man's table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores Image
*Luke 16:20 MSG*
A poor man named Lazarus, covered with sores, had been dumped on his doorstep.
Luke 16:21a *All he lived for was to get a meal from scraps off the rich man's table* .

*V21* KJV - And *desiring* to be fed with the crumbs
*V21* MSG -All he lived for was to
get the scraps that fell from the rich man's table.
If truth must be told...there are many in this category today.

👉🏼How can anyone live for crumbs?
👉🏼How can anyone be desiring to be fed with crumbs?
✔️He did not desire to be rich.
✔️He did not desire to be successful.

Now, let's look at the state of the nation at a glance, & on top of all these,#EndSarsNow will not allow is breathe.
***No functional health system, Lecturers on strike, zero electric power supply, terrible state of roads, child poverty on d rise, crime rates through the roof
kidnappings/ militias growing by day, no accountability in public services, people’s psychic are being damaged every second, Security system appalling, imbeciles appointed into sensitive positions, the vulnerable are being messed up, no sense of direction,
no future developmental goals/ plan, no initiatives for growth, no social care/economic structures, no proper justice system, no genius will to serve, no clues about gov responsibilities to its people, no decency of purpose, no respect for life.

#Nigeria @60

Many are asking, what is there to be thankful for? buy, I choose to join the few who will always be eternally grateful to God.

we will not just move on like nothing happened. Thank Him

We should make a big deal of everything God did for us... giving Him glory..
When we offer Thanksgiving, it is proof we have not lost our memory

it is also because we recognize the source of our blessings..
As we give thanks, we cannot afford to do it in moderation to the Almighty, because, the way we show appreciation can trigger more from the same source. 

If we fail to acknowledge what God has done now, who will help us again.

*Genesis 13:14 KJV*
And the Lord said unto Abram, after that Lot was *separated* from him, Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward:
There are great and mighty stuffs God may not
reveal to you because of the company you keep.

👉🏼God only revealed to Abraham great & mighty things after Lot was separated from him.

👉🏼 *For starters, Lot means a covering or a veil.*

🤷🏽‍♂️Who does any exploits under a covering or a veil?.
These great & mighty things were
just for Abraham...Lot was not permitted to look or see what God was about to show him
Lots could be physical or spiritual, but, whatever the case, there is going to be a divine separation for you..✔️
God will separate you
