Be Angry but do not Sin

Yesterday morning, I was going through Shaderoom, reading and watching videos about the different protests going on. I was watching and just crying; profusely crying. Everything I saw made me extremely sad.

I didn’t know how much it affected me until I’ll come across a white person’s page and I’ll feel this intense hate towards the person. In my mind, I’ll be like, “I know you hate me now because of the colour of my skin”.

My countenance changed, and I was hostile towards people and cold. It was then it occurred to me, this is a foul spirit and immediately I said, “you foul spirit out in the name of Jesus” and immediately I was free. My spirt became light and I was happy again.

This incident was another reason that led me to this.

We must protect our mental health, protect our spirit man with the things we feed our spirit.

I’m a big advocate of being watchful over the gates to our spirit. I fed my spirit with bad news and by so doing, I invited a foul spirit over.

The protests/movements aren’t aimed to cause sadness rather it is aimed at empowering the weak and voiceless, we should not forget that.

Also, in these times, it is easy to let our anger turn to hate. Hate as with Love can be learned, we should please not let our grieve and hurt make us hate the same people God commanded us to love.

The bible says in Ephesians 4:26 (TPT), But don’t let the passion of your emotions lead you to sin! Don’t let anger control you or be fuel for revenge, not for even a day.

It’s very easy to seek revenge on our “supposed” enemies, due to pain and hurt, but the permission to be angry does not involve the permission to sin.

1 Peter 3:9 (TPT), Never retaliate when someone treats you wrongly, nor insult those who insult you, but instead, respond by speaking a blessing over them—because a blessing is what God promised to give you.

If we respond to hate and hurt by hate, we’ll go nowhere. Change only comes when we respond to hate with love. The world is desperately in need of love, only love can change the world. And the onus is on us to show a broken world, an unbroken love that comes from Christ.

What am I trying to say? We shouldn’t consume more news than we do the Word, if not hate, bitterness and revenge will rule our hearts and minds.

We should be very careful so we don’t become bitter angry people; that’s the easiest thing to do.

We should be careful that the things we do are not founded on bitterness but Love.

Bitterness will destroy our peace, purpose, and productivity, we shouldn’t be bitter, but pour out our heart to the almighty. Seek out ways with which we can positively change that which hurts us and use our position & power to influence the world not with anger/pain but with the Word of God which brings peace, hope, and more importantly love.

Selah!

Paternity Fraud in Nigeria

Hello everyone, I hope we all had a great holiday, today I will like to talk about Paternity fraud. Before I delve into my thoughts about this trending topic, let’s define what Paternity fraud is.

Paternity fraud is the pretence that a man is the legitimate and biological father of a child. It usually occurs when a woman deliberately misidentifies a man as the biological and legitimate father of her child. This fraudulent act led the man to believe a biological connection with a child of another man and sometimes remain undetected for several years. In most cases, women are often aware that the presumed biological father is not genetically linked with the child. Read More »

How Can You Celebrate Like THIS???

LAUGHTER PIC

How can you celebrate like this? How can you celebrate your birthday like this?! She said mockingly looking me over.

This was what a “mentor” told me after I had told her many months ago that I was going to celebrate my 30th birthday.

I was literally shocked; this was someone I looked up to, telling me I shouldn’t celebrate my thirtieth because I’m still single.

Pre-Order My First Book Now

IMG-20180828-WA0000

Hello everyone, Long time no Hear. My long awaited book which I have been working on is now available for Pre-Order. It is titled Virginity Under Attack.

Why did I write this book? I wrote this book out of a passion to see each & every one of us live & walk-in sexual purity. It breaks my heart each time I see the high rise in sexual immorality. It truly breaks my heart.

It came to a head one day after I had read a story on Stella dimoko korkus blog and I was so angry. So angry I was, I picked up my pen and started writing.

The book is titled Virginity under Attack, but much more than virginity is sexual purity and of which emphasis and importance is placed. You see, it is only futile and amounts to self-deception if as a single person, you claim to be a virgin yet have done anything and everything just short of sexual intercourse. You’re impure. Sexual purity begins in your heart. Purity is a heart issue. Let’s not deceive ourselves, my people say what you won’t eat don’t smell it.

Also in this book, are life experiences of different people. From Virgins (both males & females), people who have had sex before, people who got married as virgins, and people who had previously had sex before eventually getting married.

I thought it necessary to seek the life stories & examples of individuals so we can be well informed and learn.

Also in this book explicitly discussed is the sexual abuse of children. It’ll interest you to know that

1 in 4 girls experience sexual

violence.

 And 1 in 10 boys experience sexual

violence before age 18.

Also, 90% of abusers target children in their own families and children who they know well.

This book is a must have because it’s for everyone. To the individual on the journey of purpose, to the single person who’s wondering how to do relationships God’s way especially in this morally corrupt society of ours, to the married person, and the parents on how to raise sexually pure children and to keep them from abuse.

If you are a true fan of this Blog, you would know how passionate I am about Sexual Purity and I decided it was time to do something about It. This Book is a Product of that decision.
If You Would Want A Copy, Please Get In Touch. God Bless You.
