“Musings of a young minister…

Not my generation !

There is a generation that curses its father and does not bless its mother.

There is a generation that is pure in its own eyes, yet is not washed from it’s filthiness

There is a generation -oh, how lofty are their eyes!and their eyelids are lifted up.

There is a generation whose teeth are like swords, and whose gangs are like knives,
To devour the poor from off the earth and the needy from among men.

Proverbs 30:11- 14

1.Dear young minister, please be well informed before you make remarks on issues that affect the body, like the issue at hand, it is beyond the case of doctrine or doctrinal correction…it is an example of the overstretching grace to its breaking point…that is far becoming the identity of a generation rising on our midst.

How can a young man refer to a dignitary like Dr Oyedepo as ” a shrieking bald-headed fowl”…this is no longer doctrinal, it a verbal assault and personal attack….

  1. Even if Bishop Oyedepo is not a ‘man of God’ as a father,a grandfather, a chancellor of universities and a distinguished Nigerian in his late 60s…such open dishonour should be condemned by all men of goodwill…can the attacker other than hiding behind a camera meet Dr Oyedepo one on one and describe him like he did on camera?… I doubt if he would even dare open his mouth… takes a prince to bind a prince…it was not Timothy or Titus that rebuked Peter…it was Paul…Apostle to Apostle…we must understand that there is jurisdiction and ranking in the kingdom…ranking is the reason Micheal could not rebuke Lucifer while contending for the body of Moses…He had to invoke a higher authority…ranking is important…understanding ranking is why the issue.some issues are above your pay grade.

  1. It is unthinkable to think you are fighting for God and yet you are using destructive means
    A destructive means can never bring about a constructive end.A generation that rubbished everything and anyone just to score a point…not my generation!

.5.what is happening is a by lesson for that generation that thinks they can take on anybody and speak evil of dignitaries and get away with it…that generation that feels they know ‘scripture’ more than anyone and on the basis of such are “puffed up”…to such an extent that they ‘curse’ their fathers…

6.part of the lessons we have to learn as young ministers is that you don’t have to belong to the ‘camp’ of any of the fathers before you stand up
to condemn every tongue that rises against them in judgement…especially when such is coming from charlatans and those who do not have any jurisdiction to so do especially when some charlatans take advantage of data to bring railing accusations…we will all become fathers someday…

7 the matter at hand is an example or should say a victim of a generation that is upright in their own eyes with no regard for order and ranking…
These are strange children who on the account of a perverted doctrine of grace think ‘all of us are ‘equal’ before God’.

8.this new generation is like the synagogue of freedmen in acts 6…using liberty as an occasion for the flesh will never submit to any authority structure, their stock in trade is to dispute even when it was evident that Stephen manifested a level of wisdom and spirit they were not able to resist…

  1. The issue is beyond the featured names, it’s about an emerging generation out of alignment in the transgenerational transfer of grace and value…the development at hand is the folly of a generation trying to herald a message in attempting to destroy everything else that God is doing…and their folly shall proceed no further.

10.while responses can be subjective as touching how individuals chose to respond…that is not the point…the point is why will a generation stoop so low to be so daring, so uncultured and out of order in attacking those whom God has positioned to father the body over the years…and when folks responded you are crying foul…

As young ministers, it is crucial to know where we are in the scheme of things…it is wise to learn how to work with the fathers and get their blessings…so that the heart of the fathers will align with their children and that of the children with their fathers so as to eliminate every curse.

We have work to do…not this way folks
Not my generation!”

Domestic violence is a violence or other abuse in a marriage.
Domestic violence could involve any body but I’m looking at it in a family setting between a man and his wife.

Domestic violence includes

  • Physical, verbal, emotional, economic, religion reproductive and sexual abuse.

Many people are going through a lot in marriages today, some Christan homes inclusive. This has caused a lot of harms in homes, churches and the society at large. So many women have lost their lives in the process,men inclusive but women are mostly at the receiving end. And they endure mostly even to the point of loosing their lives. This they do because of:

  1. The love they have for their spouse
  2. Because of their children
  3. What the society will say about them
  4. Because of their faith and religion.

Please when beating and sexual molestation becomes the case in your home, there’s need for separation.

Now in as much as the Bible frowns at divorce, I don’t think it’ll be reasonable for one to remain in an abusive marriage where his/her life is a stake. The same children you think about will still be maltreated, neglected and will be forced to face horrible situations the moment you are gone. The same society you are thinking of what they will say will still blame you for not speaking out on time. Your making heaven is even very slim because I don’t think your heart is clean in that condition. Your bad thoughts, unforgiveness and bitterness is enough to send you to hell. And instead of you to commit murder, I think you should separate if that’s the only option left.

Many women are going through alot. When a domestic violence involves life threatening abuses, there’s need for you to seek for help.

Many women have died in this process. Pls being born again doesn’t mean your brain should be suspended. Yes divorce is a sin but you shouldn’t die either because you are married. You are being asked to keep praying often times, yes but you could do that also while away. Many women are dying silently. Women please speak out in such conditions, don’t keep quiet. Make sure the problem is not from you. Make sure you are not the cause of it.

I have seen a woman beating blue black by her husband. Not once not twice. Infact the man always use cane,belt etc on her. And she’s asked to keep praying. What if she die one day? What if she couldn’t take it any longer and tries to defend herself and kill her partner in the process, what will be her lot?

Women should take the necessary steps the moment they see that things are getting out of hand.

Try to see how you could save the situation by involving your spiritual leaders, your both families,the people your partner respects so much and if there’s no changes please take a break while you pray and take the necessary steps to save your marriage.

Pls note that your being away is for the mean time. Even while away you are to remain and keep your body. It’s not a time to go about messing up. If you do that you are commenting sin. You are to maintain sexual purity. Even when your partner is doing otherwise. The only time remarriage is possible is when one partner is dead. See Romans 7:2,1cor.7:39.

Neighbors should as well look out for their fellow women/men. Please speak out for them. Some of them are in a tight corner and can’t help themselves.

Stay tuned for the next post on this same topic!

A group, the Federal Social Democrats, says the credibility and integrity of the Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, have been diminished by the alleged shooting of #EndSARS protesters by soldiers at the Lekki tollgate on the night of October 20.

According to the group, the Lekki incident has eroded the admiration that Sanwo-Olu won with his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The group, in statement on Sunday signed on its behalf by Olutola Mobolurin, also condemned the harassment of #EndSARS protest leaders through the freezing of their bank accounts and stopping them from travelling outside the country.

The FSD’s statement was titled, ‘Statement by the Federal Social Democrats On the #EndSARS Movement and Violence in the Wake of Lekki Shootings.’

The group said, “Governor Sanwo-Olu, who before now has been credited with responsible and energetic response to the COVID-19 pandemic, has by this one act lost his credibility and integrity for many. He has a big task in regaining the confidence of the public and youths; his credibility gap surrounding what happened at the Lekki Toll Plaza is not helped by the insensitive bluster of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu at the governor’s residence stating that those who were injured and presumably those who died had questions to answer.”

Though the group condemned the destruction of public assets and looting that trailed the shootings at the Lekki tollgate, it said the mayhem pointed to the alienation of a large number of youths from society by government.

It said, “The so-called hoodlums are the youths that have been denied any stake in society by the self-dealing and state capture that have characterised governance over the last 30 years. Millions of our youths have been uneducated, unemployable and with no meaningful social safety net. Even for the millions who are educated and skilled, long-term unemployment has been their experience in the Nigerian prebendal political economy that serves primarily the interests of public office holders and their cronies.

“Some of the ‘hoodlums’ responsible for the trashing of Lagos are the youths and ‘the toughies’ that many politicians have over the years employed to subvert the democratic process through intimidation of voters and perpetration of violence during elections.”

The group said the organisers of the #EndSARS protests deserved commendation for the resourcefulness, transparency and accountability which they demonstrated.

The group condemned “the growing reports of compilation of names of the assumed leaders and facilitators of the protests for government reprisals.”

It said, “Those that are being targeted are reportedly being prevented from travelling outside Nigeria while accounts of some have been frozen. This is hardly the hallmark of a democratic government that is interested in dialoguing with the youths or learning positive lessons from the #EndSARS protests. It is also a violation of the spirit of government’s acceptance of the 5 for 5 agenda. The President should stop all these acts of witch-hunt.”

The FSD solicited support for the Lagos State Government to rebuild and replace the vandalised public assets.

• Nigeria’s Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala had been expected to be confirmed as leader on Monday

By Richard Partington

The race to find a new leader of the World Trade Organization has been thrown into renewed uncertainty after the cancellation of a key appointment meeting following the US presidential election.

The Geneva-based WTO, which acts as an international arbiter for trading disputes, said it had put off a meeting scheduled for Monday that had been called to appoint Nigeria’s Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala as its next director general.

Donald Trump’s administration opposed her selection in one of its final acts before the US election, despite the former Nigerian finance minister securing the overwhelming backing of the WTO’s 164 members.

The special meeting of the trade body’s general council had been convened to take a formal decision on the appointment. Officials had been set to put forward Dr Okonjo-Iweala as the candidate most likely to attract a majority, after most countries expressed a preference for her over South Korea’s Yoo Myung-hee.

Okonjo-Iweala had moved a step closer to becoming the first woman and the first African to be director of the global trade watchdog after securing backing from the EU, China, Japan and Australia. Liam Fox, the leading Brexiter and former international trade secretary, had run as the UK government’s preferred candidate but failed to win enough support from other countries to reach the last two in the process.

Trade experts said Joe Biden defeating Trump in last week’s election may have led to countries calling for a delay in the WTO leadership race, with the aim of securing the Biden White House’s backing for Okonjo-Iweala after he takes charge in January.

The delay in selecting a new WTO director general comes at a fragile moment for the world economy amid the second wave of Covid-19, and after years of criticism of the WTO and calls for reform from Trump.

The WTO said the meeting would be postponed until further notice, during which time the organisation would continue undertaking consultations with delegations from countries around the world to pick a new leader.

It said in a statement: “For reasons including the health situation and current events, delegations will not be in a position to take a formal decision on 9 November.”
