I remember having a vision once
I was sleeping on the couch in my sitting room when the glory of the Lord ushered me from this plane to another
In that vision, I was in a classroom and I was taking note as I was being given instructions on how to handle the kingdom's resources
that will be coming my way in the next 5 years
I was a personal assistant at the time
The year was 2018, July the 3rd
The vision was vivid
It wasn't the first time I would be in such a scenario
In the past, I always made the mistake of assuming I would wake up with the notebook
on which i was writing all the instructions lying beside me
By the time I wake up and began to struggle to remember the details of the vision, I will find myself remembering about fifty percent of the information
It used to bother me that I wouldn't carry out instructions to the
letter and somehow I would make a mistake which the Holy Spirit would frown upon but as I grew in my walk with the Holy Spirit, I realized I can commit the instructions to mind by the spirit and bring them to memory in the place of prayer
Jesus Christ told the disciples that the
Holy Spirit will bring into their remembrance all the things they have learned of him and will also teach them new things
So what I do is pay attention to the instructions as much as possible and then pray as the vision is closing that the Holy Spirit will bring all that I have
been told to memory or move me to carry them out when I get to the point of execution
I had been a personal assistant since March 2014 and I have been praying to God to show me the next thing he would want me to do with my life as I grow in my walk with him
The job was not so
I remember a colleague of mine told me he couldn't tell his children what he did for a living because he overheard them asking their mother if some pastors have or owned slaves
He said his wife asked the children what they saw and the children pointed out that they saw
a pastor whose bible and jacket and so on was carried by another man who was acting like his slave
His wife tried her best to convince the children that it was an Elijah/Elisha thing, to which the children asked if the slaves would eventually become big pastors
At that point his
wife couldn't cough up any more answers
His colleague heard the conversation and came to the office lamenting about it
He said his children may not amount to anything in life if they saw their father as one of those slaves they were talking about
I laughed and told him their is
dignity in labor
Being a PA was not so bad but it was, especially in a church settings
Most PA's are treated worse than dogs
(A lady actually called me a houseboy once and I promptly introduced my wife to her the following Sunday by saying "Bukola, this is the lady that called me
a houseboy last Sunday"
The lady almost fainted with embarrassment
She avoided me like a plague from that day
As I spent more time on the church (I was fast approaching 40)
I began to tell myself I needed a fresh spring from above
Younger guys who could benefit from being a PA
would come to my office and I would feel guilty for being in the way of their gainful employment
The job was meant for fresh graduates who were looking to find their feet in life
The pay was poor and the work hour unbefitting for a married man
The previous PA resigned because he
couldn't spend time at home with his young bride
After months of praying, the Holy Spirit finally told me one day that he has given me a river and things will change very soon
I waited eagerly for further instructions which came in the form of that vision
A white marker board
with a 2018-2023 plan outlined on it
I took notes furiously, I didn't want to forget anything
I wrote and read what I was reading out loud so that when I come out of the vision I will remember as much of the instructions as possible
Suddenly there was a voice, a strange voice
The voice was thrusting sharper and deeper into my subconscious and interrupting this glorious vision
I tried very hard to shut it out but it continued to rise in feverish pitch until I was plugged back to reality on the couch in my flat in Ketu, Lagos
It was sheer wickedness
I almost cried
I laid down again to continue the vision but I couldn't
The voice continued to pierce through the night like the cries of a hungry owl
It was the voice of a woman
She was located in the next building
The next building was a bakery and something must have provoked
her to pray
She was praying those fear-mongering prayers many will call "warfare" prayers
She was singing those senseless songs concocted in ignorance called "warfare" songs
She was burning down altars and killing demons at will and she was disturbing my life in a very wicked way
I could barely restrain myself from walking to the bakery and screaming at her to shut up
If I did that, I knew I would never be able to bring that vision back
I waited patiently from 3AM to 5AM
As I waited, I prayed that God will help me wear her out so that she can go back to
I really needed that vision to move to the next phase of my life
It was more important than anything at the time
She eventually finished her prayer around 5am
I laid down again to sleep but the vision refused to come back
I tried very hard
After an hour of summoning, I gave
I took a pen and paper and began to write down the things I could remember
The very first was "Build me a website"
When I got to the office that morning, a message was waiting for me on Twitter
A website developer from Ilorin who was stranded in Lagos
He was in my DM and was
not for money but if i have a website project in mind that he could build for me
That was how I began to execute that divine plan
The website was followed by the commencement of Night of Glory and later the establishment of PSSBC
From 2018 till now I can say that I have followed
that plan as led by the Holy Spirit
@pssbcnigeria is three years old and three days old today
It is currently running its school 8
The gospel has flourished through the school and the GSW ministries international.
As for the part of the vision that I couldn't capture, they
evolved over time
@gswmiWM @GSWMICoZ_ @GswmiFirebrand @gswmicsr @gswmithegathering @gswmioutreaches and many others sprang to life in the course of pursuing the parts of the vision I remember
I finally left the PA job in November 2019, five months away from my 40th Birthday!
PS: God has a plan for your life
Divine plans are unraveled in the place of prayer
When you pray out of fear or pray the wrong prayers based on demons and enemies and so on, you find yourself STUCK IN ONE SPOT.
God will not be sent on foolish errands
When you pray, pray in faith
and pray meaningful and purposeful prayers
Seek God's face and fellowship with the Holy Spirit
He will make your way prosperous
When you engage in distractions in the name of prayer, you will waste your time creating and fighting unreal enemies
Be wise.
The date was August 28, 2018. (Apologies for the mix up)

Every long holiday for him was spent at the village since he clocked six
His father wanted his children to be constructively engaged during the long holidays and felt the attention his parents would pay the children would help them grow in wisdom and maturity
His father's mother
was a trader
His father's father was a farmer
His father had four children
Two girls and two boys
Both his parents were working and they didn't have a maid
Leaving the children to their devices during the holidays was a concern for their parents
Idle hands usually leads to troubl
The last holiday they had before the village trips began. the oldest of them, 13 years old at the time was caught by their mother hiding in a wardrobe with one of the neighbours children in the name of playing "hide and seek"
Nothing untoward was going on but a 14-year-old boy

An apostle was addressing his own members
If not for technology, you wouldn't be privy to his discussion with his members
He was sharing with them within the context of their understanding of his message, nature, and personality how he thrived in the middle of a season of casting
He mentioned what he achieved and even though it might sound like a boast, he was not boasting to you
He was boasting to his church members and as such, you cannot call it a boast
A father does not need to boast to his children and a shepherd surely does not need to boast to
his sheep
Newspapers needed a scandal and felt the message of the apostle was the right fit in their quest to get eyeballs
You read it and you began to insult the apostle
You, the son of a dog from Abatan refuse dump decided to drag an apostle on Twitter
Do you understand what it

I found myself unable to discuss or see people in a negative light
It was a strange place to be
A whole new realm that isolated me in some way
When I am among people and the topic goes in the direction of Mr. So and So did this evil thing to me or Mrs. Such and such said the
following things about me
I find my skin crawling and my defences up
I don't do this naturally, it just is.
When I am with my team and we're discussing stuff, I dodge all the unnecessary stuff
I don't want to know who is doing that bad thing or who is not performing up to par
I find it nauseating to say the least
Talking ill of people even when it ought to be discussed
A brother caught covid from his girlfriend
They were not married and ought not to be together that way
Someone pointed my attention to it and I felt somehow
Like the person wanted to

He got home from campus about an hour before his friend arrived at his door
His friend came in looking dejected
He asked his friend what happened
His friend told him there was a babe he was crushing on
He had tried to tell her how he felt many times but the babe didn't take him
The babe was a paragon of beauty
His friend said the babe was the one
The one for whom he could fly into the sky and drag the moon to cover the sun in the name of love
She was the one
The one for whom he could turn day to night
The one for whom he could cause an eclipse.
His friend said the babe had many suitors
Her mother owned a restaurant and she helps out at the restaurant every evening
His friend asked him if he could follow him to the restaurant to give him moral support
His friend said he wanted to tell her how he felt but he knew he had

What does it take anybody to hate God? or lose their faith in Him? or start ignoring Him, or even come to loathe and hate Him?
It is religion, every religion
Religion is human being's relation to that which they regard as Holy, sacred, absolute, spiritual, divine or worthy of
special reverence. It is also the way people deal with the ultimate concerns about their fate after death.
There is a desire in man to seek God out and worship Him, that desire is innate
King Solomon refer to it as eternity being woven into the fabric or coded into the DNA of
In Genesis 4:26, we saw the definition of religion "Seth also had a son and he named him Enosh. At that time people began to call on the name of the Lord"
That is religion
You will notice that God didn't respond to them in

Question: Will a believer still bear the consequences of his or her sins with God if such commits any transgression?

Answer: You know there are sins against God and there are sins against men and if you sin against God he will forgive you but men don’t always forgive.
For example, if you stole something God will forgive you but the law may not forgive you, you may be taking to court you may be found guilty and even put in prison now those are the consequences of your sin but this time is a bridge against the law. So you have to understand it
depends on the sin from God’s side he holds nothing against you anymore but you know man has a different standard, so it depends on what kind of sin we are talking about if it offended a human being he may lets you go even though God but man have rights in their world so it
