She had finished all her plans, she and her older brother
She rented a house, changed the children’s school and was about to move them out
Then she went to the pastor to tell him to please appeal to her husband not to make trouble once she makes the move
She knew he would put up
a fight
She told the pastor her brother had arranged for mobile police officers that would arrest and lock up her husband if he dare put up a fight
She said she had made up her mind to leave him because he had no drive, no future and had been a leech since they got married!
The pastor called the meeting for Sunday evening and broke the news as calmly as he could to the husband
Her husband couldn’t believe it
He had been working so hard (although with little to show for it) but he had been working very hard to meet the needs of his family
Things were
just about to turn around
It was the last thing he expected.
He tried to explain his side of the story, to appeal to the pastor so that the pastor can appeal to her
She took over at that point and said “The marriage was dead”
He kept quiet and took it in
He was about to lose
The next morning, he rushed to his in-law’s house
He got there at about 6:00am hoping to have a word with her mother and siblings before they set off to work
He had been calling them on the phone and they had ignored his call
He got there and waited
Knocked the gate
and waited
They eventually emerged at about 7:15AM
They didn’t even give him a second look
He greeted and shouted
They saw him and drove off
It was hell.
That same day, at about 1pm, one@of his proposals got a hit and he was invited to the company he wrote it to for a discussion
The company was planning a campaign for the festive season and his proposal was selected as the beat way to achieve the company’s goal
His tourist business was given the nod to execute the project and paid handsomely for the job in dollars
He bought a house and a new car!
When he got home that night his wife had finished packing everything
He didn’t argue with her, he just told her to look outside
His wife saw the car and the documents
His took his wife to his new house the next day
He told her the company signed a five years contract with him
One month later, they moved to the new house
Himself, his wife, his children and the house maids
His wife was happy, the children were glad but he couldn’t let it go!
She was going to take away his children because things were tough
How was he supposed to just swallow that?
A few months after they settled into the house he filed for divorce
He did it from a position of strength!
His wife started begging him
His in-laws too
Even the pastor quoted scriptures and told him to let it go
He said No!
The intention of his wife was plain, why pretend?

In 2007 I went to a BSF meeting as a delegate. We were to teach students like us and from secondary schools the scriptures. The preview started and when it was my turn to teach all the student leaders dropped their pens to listen. They have never heard the gospel taught as I
taught it
When I was done, I was nominated to teach the entire student populace, but then this brother stood up and said I shouldn’t be allowed to teach because I was wearing a pair of jeans and T-shirt.
He cited examples of how he wore jeans to preach once and people didn’t pay
attention because of what he was wearing. Everybody agreed with him so the BSF coordinator arranged for me to wear a pair of trousers for the teaching.
I did as I was told because I wanted to be the one to teach the class.
“I became all things to all men”
What people didn’t get

She had borne the pain and the abuse for many months, she woke up that morning brimming with a strange anger and a taste of vengeance in her mouth
She never ever thought she would end up in an abusive relationship
When they started out, he was the sweetest man she had ever met!
She was 29 when she met him at one of those end of the year exhibitions held at the television station where she was stationed by her company at the time
She was manning one of the exhibition stands, she was a pretty face in a short skirt
He saw right through her that morning!
He saw that she was lonely and yearning for a mate
She knew he saw that because he walked over to her at her stand and said “I have been looking at you for a few minutes, your eyes look sad and lonely! I came to cheer you up”
She couldn’t even respond in her usual witty way!

Good morning family, we have completed the roofing of the church we are building in the Philippines! The project was hampered by the rain and we had to construct the drainages and soak aways last week
Glory be to God
The Lord has been our help throughout this project. This community encountered the love of Christ and testifies of the glory revealed in that love!
I have had people call from all over the world commending the work.
I am happy to inform us that we have contributed to the building ImageImageImageImage
Of many churches before now and out rightly built churches in selected communities in Nigeria so that such a community can have a place of worship.
We select rural communities and bring the light of the gospel to them!

She was the most beautiful girl he had ever spoken to up till the moment he met her
She came to their village to write WAEC as an external student
Those special centre arrangement runs done by teachers in those days
He was the most brilliant student of the school
Her hair was
Curly, her lips enticing and her eyes were like crystal jars of love
He was taking a tutorial class when she walked in
He had never been to the city before but he had studied hard and was determined not to waste the money he made from his hard labour on the farm. He was going
to make something of himself
He had great dreams of travelling abroad and studying in England
Others had done it from his village, although most of them@moved to the city and travelled from the city
He didn’t know anyone who did it directly from their village and he didn’t care

The children of the night are having a field day, promoting what they inherited from their father, living the life of darkness in this world
Their ideas, ideologies, mindsets and belief systems are not challenged, in fact they are given free course to express themselves and speak
Was it not on this app that they started a silhouette challenge?
Was it not here they did a mammary gland display challenge?
Was it not here they did a moaning challenge?
Was it not here that they displayed and celebrated a mother carrying her son’s baby with joy?
Jesus said it
is the hour of darkness!
The children of the night are thriving in their hour
One came out to make a case for pedophiles, another has boldly made a case for incest
All sorts of taboos are being touted as right in the name of modernism and openeyeism
What can darkness do but be

Pastors are not omniscient, neither are prophets, teachers, evangelists or any other office holders in the church of Christ.
That anyone would deliberately pretend not to know this in order to ridicule pastors is a cry for help
The ability to suspend reasoning in favour of folly
is a tragedy this generation is courting so blatantly
And I submit that those who deliberately do this needs serious help
I used to work as a PA to pastors, I worked with pastors of many denominations and yes I know that those around them lie to them often and they would have no
clue about the truth.
I have seen the children of pastors lie to their parents and get away with it almost all the time
This is not an indictment on pastors, they know only what the Holy Spirit reveals unto them.
Whatever is hidden from them cannot be known, did you not read this
