Beware of your "elder brother"

Beware of elder brothers, experienced Christians who have become so experienced and are now lukewarm.
They have become so experienced that they can not shout hallelujah, can no longer dance In church, they know everything, cannot be corrected.
They condemn you when you dance before your God saying it's for young Christians.
They are offended when you praise God in an unusual way. As far as they are concerned, it's for beginners.

Do not allow any older brother stand in your way.
#They are never happy when you stand
up after a fall. Luke 15, story of the returning prodigal son and his older brother.
#They are not happy when you can achieve what they cannot. 1 Sam 17, his older brothers despised him when he came to the battlefield and claimed he could kill Goliath
#They are not happy when it
becomes obvious your dreams are bigger than theirs. Genesis 37:11
And his brethren envied him; but his father observed the saying.
When you shout for joy before God, they complain. They say this is the 21st century.

#Keep shouting.
Bartimaeus shouted till he got his miracle.
In 1st Sam 17v30, David ignored his older brothers remarks and turned to another set of people.

He knew that his brothers reactions were borne out of envy, after all, his brothers were present when the man of God anointed him king over Israel.
God has anointed you for greatness, whether the older ones like it or not, you will be great in Jesus name.

"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

#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
*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.

#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

***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.
