Speaking out is right, In leadership silence is consent.

Why I agree in principle with Pastor Ibiyome and Pastor Paul Eneche.

To openly mock someone much older than you and also a person who is in authority should be roundly condemned. The principle of publicly speaking out against such behavior is right for if left unanswered in the public square, it will become the culture and many who are young and impressionable people will follow suit.

In leadership, silence is consent. What you see today in a corner that seems insignificant if you do not address it will one day takeover the entire fabric of society.

There are institutions God has put in place to keep society in order. Those offices must be respected even if you disagree with them. You may disagree doctrinal wise with leaders and you may in some cases voice out your opinion but to use mockery and insults as a weapon is wrong and must be condemned.

God in delivering the children of Israel told Moses they could not leave Egypt without the authorization of Pharaoh. God could have used his power to cause a deep sleep to come on the Egyptians and led the children of Israel out.

Why did he choose the method of Moses going to Pharaoh to tell him “let my people go” God pressed Pharaoh to authorize it because God who created Pharaoh had respect to his authority.

Angel Michael in contending against lucipher still recognized ranking and did not rebuke him but said the Lord rebuke you.

Jude 8-9
“8 Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities.
9 Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.”

To publicly speak in an insulting manner against men in authority is not a Christian virtue. This has nothing to do with any generation, it is simply wrong.

This doesn’t mean you may not disagree with positions but to speak evil of dignities, using tactics of mockery must be roundly condemned or else in 10years time children who have disagreements with their parents at home will come on social media to insult them.

The public denunciation of disrespectful behavior in principle is the correct thing to do and this not for personal reasons but for the preservation of order in society.

When Vasthi rebelled against the King her husband this wasn’t the first time she was probably doing it but now she did it in public and the wise men “forced” the king to put her away or else every woman regardless of her background will begin to rebel in their homes against their husbands and by that singular act the whole family system in that nation will be threatened and destroyed.

Esther 1:16-17
“16 And Memucan answered before the king and the princes, Vashti the queen hath not done wrong to the king only, but also to all the princes, and to all the people that are in all the provinces of the king Ahasuerus.
17 For this deed of the queen shall come abroad unto all women, so that they shall despise their husbands in their eyes, when it shall be reported, The king Ahasuerus commanded Vashti the queen to be brought in before him, but she came not.”

This is why speaking in the open is sometimes necessary to kill the spirit before it spreads and destroys the fabric of society.

My advice to young ministers is, if you disagree with the direction the Church is going then raise new ministries that will emphasize what you believe to be right, build up people around the truth revealed to you and let the work grow until the brightness of your revelation is seen through the lives of the people you have raised.

To think you can insult your way to destiny is futile.

What Does Jesus Want for Christmas?

What Does Jesus Want for Christmas?

everyone is preparing for Christmas, you need to see the crowd at Alaba intl Market yesterday….. Someone told me that he visited Oshodi central market on Christmas Eve and almost lost is shadow in the crowd. Hahaha 😴

Preparation everywhere… One thing that I get to notice is that we prepare more for the funFair part, we spent more time planning and thinking of what to eat, drink and wear. Which I 100% agree that is all part of the celebration of Christmas.

But have you ever asked yourself this question…

What Does Jesus Want for Christmas?
what gift those he desire from us? What has always been is dearest desire and expectation from us.
There is really only one thing that Jesus wants for Christmas. Jesus wants you.
Of course He wants other people too, but you cannot give other people to Jesus. You can only give yourself.

You can exhort and challenge others to give themselves to Christ, but that begins by giving yourself fully to Christ. Prepare to receive him, Create a room for him in your heart.

You are aware of what happened 2000 years ago according to the Gospel of Luke 2:6-7
While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, 7 and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them.

So back then there was no room available for him….

What about now he wants you, One of the greatest gifts you can give Jesus this season is the gift of you. Jesus wants a relationship with you.

Your distance brother

Merry Christmas to you all

Death and satan have lost battle over your passing because a soul has just been added to the Kingdom of God.

Words can not describe the intensity and depth of how many people will miss you. So articulate and determined person of rear nature without comparison. Tough and gentle. Hardworking and loving.

A loving person engraved with passion for others professional and personal progress. Madam Toyin Oluyemisi Adedayo-Ojo. Your world, though short, but impacting and blessing to many lives. A free minded person who was ready to say anything that can serve as weight in her mind out in love without holding a bit. This world will feel your impact at this crucial time when your sharp brain in building and putting things right would be acutely needed. Pages of an entire huge book can not describe your person. How many lives can finally put food on their table through your compassionate disposition to mankind. How you gave many free consultative advice and encouragement free of charge to change their lives. How you raised many from nothing to something bigger. You were a rear gem. Supporter of dreams, vision and mission. A gold in the hand of your loving husband Daddy Reverend Dayo Ojo. Heavens definitely make your way crossed though a short period but immensely productive.

I believe heavens shall be glad receiving such a good image of God in you. A host of heaven shall rejoice for a well spent life of yours. At 47, your efforts and rewards surpasses those well above 100.

ANOINTED BUT NOT APPOINTED YET: EMPHASIS ON TRAINING AND DEVELOPING FOR QUALITY LEADERSHIP.

ANOINTED BUT NOT APPOINTED YET: EMPHASIS ON TRAINING AND DEVELOPING FOR QUALITY LEADERSHIP.

David the shepherd boy was caring for the 🐑, just minding his own business when he was called. The prophet chose him out of his seven elder brothers to become the king of Isreal.

What’s interesting is David didn’t go to the palace the moment he was anointed. He didn’t step into leadership that day. He went back to the shepherd’s field.

When God give you a promise there will always be a waiting period. What we do while waiting will determine whether or not the promise would come to be.

David was Anointed but not Appointed yet. He had to go through the season of proving and testing. David understood this principles,” to see promises come to pass, you have to keep travelling steadily forward. You have to do the right thing when no one is watching you. You have to be your best, thank God even though the door is not opening.

Month after months, David took good care of those animals- making sure they weren’t attacked and destroyed. His father didn’t even invite him home the first time prophet Samuel came searching. His brothers made fun of him. He didn’t let all that burder him. He didn’t feel bitter. Rather,he kept travelling forward.

After David defeated Goliath, King Saul became jealous of his achievements. Saul chased David through the mountains and the valleys in the wilderness. Yet David didn’t hurt Saul when he could have. He wasn’t impatient with God. He knew clearly,if he keeps moving forward in the necessary process of training and developing, then God will take him to the throne at His “Appointed” time.

Thirteen years after David was “Anointed”King Saul died in the battlefield and David ascended the throne. Amen!

Time may fail me to sight other examples: Moses was” Anointed” but had to wait forty whole years just tending Jethro’s flocks,then bagging his heroic”Appointment” with a corresponding responsibility.

Also, Joshua though”Anointed”early enough, but had to wait on the sidelines serving as long as Moses’ ministry lasted. Yet when”Appointed” was instrumental in climaxing the noble cause of” entrance proper” into the promise land.

Lastly, one of the most thriving penticostal churches in Nigeria today was started in a campus room with less 20 people, but has today hundreds of thousands of membership in the country and beyond. The founder and the General Superitendent, a man with an uncommon vision and passion for soul winning was”Anointed” just was David, but with no ceremonious “Appointment”. At least, not immediately. Yet he moved forward steadily through the”Training and Developing processes. Today pastor W.F Kumuyi of the Deeper Life Bible Church is an authority figure with the emphasis to Christian work and Leadership!

You’ve waited for those dreams and expectations to materialize. You have waited having been” Anointed”, chosen and ordained by God. However,as each day passes by,it seems just farther away from reality. Hang on right there! Remember you didn’t achieve the “Anointing”just by human efforts in the first place.

So when next it appears you are waiting longer time, just know it’s not after all vain. Many thanks!
