She insisted she did everything she did for love
She said "If i was as wicked as many are claiming now, I could have used the opportunities I have to help myself, to make some money, to travel abroad, to achieve great feats but I didn't. All I did was defend my territory, all I
did was protect my turf from being invaded by strangers
All I did was fight to keep what was mine"
She was in her later fifties when her children dragged her to the office of the brother in Jeans and T-shirt. She had five children, four boys and one girl
Her first son, 43, had
been married for 13 years without a child, her second son 40, had been married for 15 years without a child, her third child 38, had been married for 10 years without a child, her only daughter 36, was not married and the last child 34 had been married for two years without a
The children had called a meeting at the beginning of that year among themselves wondering how they had all been struggling to move forward in life generally and specifically in the area of childbearing
How can a mother have five children and none of the children was able
to start a family
They decided to fast and pray
They needed a revelation and a direction
On the third day of their fast, they all had a similar revelation
They saw a pregnant woman, lying in a pool of blood, calling their mother's name and cursing their mother's children with
bareness and all sorts of maladies before dying
It was strange for two people to have the same revelation of the night at the same time but four of them had this revelation and could describe the details vividly.
The only one of them who didn't have the revelation that night was
accosted by a pregnant woman on her way home from her office on the evening of the same day
The woman walked up to her and said "Lady, you desire to be pregnant, to carry a baby! You're praying for the fruit of the womb but the blood and cry of the innocent will not allow you and
your brothers to hear the patter of little feet in your home. Too much blood, too much wickedness, too much evil! you need to talk to your mother!"
Later that evening during their 9pm prayers on the phone, the oldest brother shared the revelation and they were all struck by fear.
They decided to had to see their mother and find out how she was involved in their plight
The traveled to their mother's location the following Friday and told their mother what they had seen, they begged their mother to shed some light on the issue
Their mother smiled and said
she didn't know anything about their inquiries
The children were shocked
Their father died at the age of fifty and only witnessed the wedding ceremony of the second son, so he was in no position to answer their questions
Their mother had decided not to say a word (They were sure
she knew so much more than she was claiming to know)
So they decided they would all abandon her because she was a witch
She was working with the sanitation department in her state as a street cleaner at the time
She was earning some money but they supported her with a stipend
every month.
After three months, she called her first son and told him he should hold himself and his siblings responsible for anything that happened to them from that day as a result of their silent treatment
The children called for another meeting and travelled down to meet
with her
This time they tricked her that they wanted to take her somewhere for medical treatment and brought her to the office of the brother in Jeans and T-shirt
They were convinced once their mother confesses to witchcraft everything would be resolved and they would be able to
move on to the next level of fulfilment in life
The Brother in Jeans and T-shirt berated them for their tactics, he found it disrespectful
He met their mother and apologized to her on behalf of her children
Then he told the mother why the children did what they did
They had been
provoked to wrath
He asked the family to join their hands together
He joined his hands with them and prayed for unity and a turnaround
As soon as they finished praying, their mother started to cry
She said she did what she did for love
What did she do?
She heard from a friend
that her late husband had married a second wife secretly and that the woman was pregnant
She couldn't believe her husband would betray her that way
They started with nothing and were still struggling to make ends meet
She confronted her husband with the facts she had gathered and
her husband told her that was the instruction he got from one of the spiritualists he went to for spiritual consultation
Her husband said the spiritualist told him that until another woman delivers a child for him, he would never have a breakthrough in life
She couldn't just make
sense of it
They were so poor that their children had to hawk groundnut and palm oil every day for her to put food on the table
The children were practically wearing rags to school and in all that the little he was making from his waste disposal business was being shared with
another woman somewhere
How does that make any sense?
Her husband had always been one of those people who would rather work for today and believe in sudden wealth for the future
He always wanted to be rich but he was neither prepared nor equipped for it
She knew all about his
spiritual consultations with all sorts of people all in the name of making money but the one thing she didn't see coming was another wife with children
From the moment she confirmed that fact from her husband, she became restless
It was the one thing she couldn't accept for what
it was
She didn't bargain for poverty but she had accepted it with hope but accepting the other woman was too much for her to take
She found her own spiritualist and explained her dilemma
The spiritualist gave her options and she chose the one she felt would teach her husband
never to take her for granted again
She was given an a doll made in the shape of a pregnant woman with instructions
She followed the instructions and threw the doll into the fire she was using to make dinner for the family
Three weeks later, the other wife died
Seven months later
her husband fell sick and died too
When she returned to the spiritualist to ask why her husband died, she was told she shouldn't have thrown it into the fire within the household
She should have followed the instruction given to her and journey far into the bush to start th fire
she would use
By burning the enchanted doll under a roof, all those under that roof had become afflicted
That was their mother's secret
She said she had done everything within her power to correct the wrong that was done but it was all to no avail
The children, hearing the story
for the first time started to cry and lament
The Brother in Jeans and T-shirt just laughed
He said, "Wow, I thought you guys were all born again, Holy Ghost-filled habitations of God"
The children nodded
"Why are you crying and lamenting," He asked them
They just looked at him...
James 1: 22 Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. 23 Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror 24 and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he
looks like. 25 But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it—not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do."
The Brother in Jeans and T-shirt said "You guys are oscillating between your human
reality and your reality in Christ
You have to choose a side and stay in it
The day you gave your life to Christ, you walked out of darkness into the light, if this is the truth, then walk in the light!
Darkness cannot have a hold on the light
There can be no accord between light
and darkness.
You have given the devil a foothold in your light by walking in the flesh after yielding your life to Jesus and getting filled with the Holy Spirit
You have to renew your mind and walk away from this wrong mindset"
The oldest son, who also happens to be a pastor
said "How do we do this sir"
The Brother in Jeans and T-shirt said "Your mother just told a fantastic story that directly affects your human spirit.
The Bible also told us the story of salvation in Jesus that directly affects your reality in Christ
Which of these stories would
you believe and walk in with conviction
The Oldest son said "The story of my salvation in Christ"
The Brother in Jeans and T-shirt asked the other children the same question
They all said they would rather believe the truth of the gospel and its eternal salvation
They prayed for
some days together via a phone call where they read the scripture and prayed in the spirit
Three months later, the first three brothers recorded pregnancy in their marriages for the first time
The first of baby was born on the 23rd March, 2019 and named "Jabez"
His birth was
followed by other births and a wedding for the only daughter in April 2020.
The entire family's reality was turned around by the understanding of their realities in the light and the right fellowship that nurtured the right mindset
Their mother is still alive and enjoying the
blessings of the gospel
She has also given her life to Christ and now lives with the first son and his family
This event happened in Jos and Lagos state, Nigeria!

PS: Some Christians are taught that after they had given their lives to Jesus, demons still have a say in their
It is like a slave that got adopted to become a son but in his mindset was still a slave
He will only always act as a slave in reality
You are the light now, shine!
You left a location and its ills for another location and its blessings
You cant be in two places at once

A Christian brother travelled to the UK, he disembarked from the plane to discover his international passport with 5 years visa had been stolen or missing. He complained to the officials, they tried everything they could for him. The document was not found. He was returned to
People started shouting “Village people”. About six pastors and even the ones he knew in the UK before traveling to Nigeria all saw the hand of the enemy. This brother started moving from one pastor to the other seeking a solution to the “village people” after him. His

The mob can always be sold a dummy
They will buy it and defend it with joy
Even when they come to realize they have been sold a dummy
They will stick to their position and insist it was not what it was or blatantly say "So what? At least it is our dummy and we are not complaining
Jesus called it the hour of darkness
That moment when sense, logic, reason, and reality is suspended for an agenda to prevail
When people are determined to place a lie on the throne and hang the truth on a scaffold there was nothing they wouldn't do to make it happen
Even fools must have their way if we are all going to live in this world together
If only the wise got to make decisions, the fools will feel left out
If the fools felt left out they can incite a riot or throw a spanner into the works for the fun of it
Just so that they can have

December 2019, a renowned evangelist departed this world
A lot of believers started sending goodwill messages
This evangelist to them was the greatest example of Jesus to the world in our time
He never took an offering during his crusades
He shared free Bibles and books
He was a
Many told the story of how he negotiated the release of prisoners with state governments and how he ensured that some communities without running water got water
This man of God had been to many nations in Africa preaching the good news and many through him had come to
know Christ
A few days after the evangelist slept in the Lord, a TV station's crew cornered another man of God in America
They met him at the airport and interviewed him
They deliberately asked him questions relating to his private jets and wealthy lifestyle

If you see a thousand books in the body of Christ about the Believer and The Holy Spirit, 999 of those books will be titled "How to hear from God"
Believers ask that question always "How do I hear from God?"
"How do I know it is not just my thoughts but the Holy Spirit speaking
to me"
The emphasis on hearing from God is a little "off" for a new testament believer
The Holy Spirit is no longer outside of you so that he leads you by words only
He is inside of you and he is a person
This means all your senses are now His to use to his good pleasure
He can
show you a vision or a sight
He can make you perceive a smell, a fragrance or a stench if the sick or the demonic is around you
He can make you feel sensations in your body, a tingling, a burning, a chilling sensation, goose pimples, warmth etc
He can make you hear either audibly
