THE WISDOM OF THE FAKE LEADER


I’ve observed the genuine, honest pastor/leader and the fake Pastor/leader, and I’ve come to the conclusion that the genuine Pastor can learn so much from the fake pastor to improve on her genuineness

The fake pastor (especially the con artist) uses practical laws and principles which works perfectly well, if applied with consistency. It doesn’t matter whose hands these laws operates from. You will probably say; “what has light have to do with darkness? We are not talking about our common faith in God, but the natural laws of this universe. His motive is bad but the the laws are good and holy. In Luke 16 Jesus talks about money… giving us a parable about a man who exhibited an unfaithful character as a steward. 

UNJUST STEWARD – The master commended the unjust steward for his SHREWDNESS. His special and dynamic ability to connect himself with the leanders of his master. He has master brain. The will to act swiftly to avert a situation. He knows he couldn’t work. He was ashamed to dig. So he canceled some of the debts to attain favor with the debtors. He was focused on future. He knows he had sown a seed they will surely pay back in the near future. His skill set was commended, not his mischievous and unfaithful behavior. 

So much is required from all genuine pastors and leaders by God. Much is giving, so much is required. The gossip and the bashing will not make Christ attractive. Developing new mindset is the key to packing well your gospel to the masses caught in a web of darkness.

Luke 16:8 8“The master commended the dishonest manager because he had acted shrewdly. For the people of this world are more shrewd in dealing with their own kind than are the people of the light

SHREWDLY – A shrewd person is savvy, intelligent, wise, and a creative thinker. They know what they have to do at every time. An outside of the box kind of a leader. Sadly, most genuine pastors are limited within a certain space of operation. The skill set to break out of the old mode is lacking. Most genuine pastors are caught in the web of tradition, having no relevance for the culture they live in. All genuine Pastor will surely go to heaven, but if you ignore the universal laws of life, and certain principles of God, your life can be stag in the same place. You can become a liability to the kingdom. 

7 THINGS TO LEARN FROM A FAKE PASTOR 

1. THE LAW OF SELF PROJECTION – Most fake Pastors are endowed with the skill of projecting self ( some form of aura) into the consciousness of the masses. You’ll easily believe them to something they are not. So they give themselves certain names and accolades.

They are not afraid to build huge billboards, and advertise on radio, telling people what they can offer. The genuine pastor has this mindset; “Promotion comes from the Lord” “Except the Lord build the city” “He will build his church and the gates of hell cannot prevail.” They all sound beautiful and religious. But the truth is humans are always looking for someone/something to believe in. Though he’s genuine no one knows what he can offer. He doesn’t have a certain appeal that connects well with his generation. 

The secret is this; people still want to know if you have the answer. So we can agree with Peter; “what I have i give unto you.” There’s absolutely nothing wrong to showcase or parcels what you have, and present it to the world, from the persuasion of Christ. Most believers have no confidence in the genuine Pastor. Though he’s genuine, he doesn’t have what it takes to appeals to the mind and heart of men;  drawing them to the feet of Christ. Remember, genuine pastors can’t hide their light under a bushel, relying only on prayer for the community to be drawn to God is doing. The community has to be reached whatever means possible. 

2. THE LAW OF MONEY – Money is a medium of exchange. To hoard and boast about it is foolishness. Most fake pastors love good things. They have material wealth. But they usually start from the bottom. They have this belief: “As much as I invest in my art, I will attract the masses.” He buys professional, sophisticated gadgets that gives his brand a certain aura, to push himself into the consciousness of the masses, via TV, Radio, live streaming online, and quality sound or the product they are selling out. etc.

One of the things most genuine pastors should  learn from fake pastors is to not be afraid of money, investing richly and wisely in what you’ve been called to do. Talk to the other great and honest pastors within your city or community who are doing well. Ask them how they doing it. Men look on the outward. So people wonder why you keep preaching against fake pastors, but there is nothing about your ministry that’s worth giving their attention to. 

MONEY ATTRACTS– Money will always attract money. Or good things attract their kind. They (fake leaders) have good sound quality in their sanctuary, they literally help the poor and the needy. Walk into their office, and it is like you’re in the Oval Office. These are all done to impress, and  cover up their mischiefs. As true servant of God, I believe you should not got stag into traditions and the archaic, and just be open minded, and go for quality at all times. Quality doesn’t mean expensive.

Sometimes, due to the transparency of the genuine pastor, in regards to church funds, he’s easily sabotaged by religious leaders. On the other hand the fake pastor always surround themselves with sycophants, or operates with scare tactics, so that no one can stop them; digging into church coffers. ( if you learn this you’ll die sooner or later) Educate your leaders on the importance of your call and their place in your mission. They shouldn’t be opposers of anything good.

3. THE LAW OF BOLDNESS – The fake pastor is not afraid to try new things, by telling his followers God has spoken to him. Even if it backfires they always have answers for their followers. Fake pastors are very daring. They test high waters. Fake pastors make what’s not real to look real. 

 As a matter of fact they are not afraid of rumors mongery, and scandals. Fear is the limitation of the genuine pastor. He’s always waiting for God’s time. What if I do it and people start to talk? Confidence is something that moves people. An uneducated fake pastor can control a Harvard business graduate in his church, because of his self confidence. Observe any fake pastor, you will see this trait. Scandals upon scandals, and yet they keep coming like a horse. 

BE BOLD AND WISE – God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, love and sound mind. Imagine if the genuine pastor has the boldness to pray for the sick, and speak the mind of God prophetically, without being obsessed about mistakes and what have you. The limitation of the genuine pastor is her lack of courage. Be bold be courageous; the words of the Lord to Joshua. (Read Joshua 1:1-9)

Dear, fake man of God, 

 All your works can bring you earthly profit, but your end will not be good. So don’t ignore the gentle warnings of the spirit. I know you feel empty in all the places of your being but you feel ashame to surrender. Let it go. Surrender to Christ… He cares about your soul and your future.

Dear genuine man of God,

You cannot attract what you attack. All prophets and healers are not fake. Though some are, that doesn’t give you the audacity to condemn all. Teach what is right. Be open minded about this world. Use your gifts and talents without fear. Ask God to help you to increase financially, so that you can defend the faith handed to you in all platforms of communication. Don’t be afraid. Don’t limit yourself as you watch the evil man grow tall like a palm tree. Rise. Illuminate the darkness

LUCIFERS KISS


Friday.
Circa,
A.D. 2015
London,
England.

Lucifer asked me for a hug.
Characteristic of him,
he kissed me; crawling into
this fragile heart – a rubble
home he made for himself,
and his his many cohorts.
Alas, i sit under the sway
of the puppet master, singing
blues

DID YOU MEAN IT


Did I told you I love you
Did you believe I meant it
The air is saturated with illusions
Roses are red violets are blue
Sugar is sweet, so are you
A love so uncertain and cunning

Did you really said you love me
Do you really believe you love me
You filled my stomach with calories
I regret eating your sour love cake

Your mind is jammed with deception
You’ve filled your quiver with machete
You’ve loaded your gun like James Bond
Bantama High street is your destination
You ready to kill your vulnerable prey

Watch him with his boom box on his shoulders
He is playing a love song he can’t sing
He is humming so loud to get an attention
Yes, He is the cynosure of love seekers
Don’t believe in his love; he is a character

Did I said I love you
Did you believe I meant it

Love so rare and priceless
He is broke but he is caring
He doesn’t know hallmark cards but
His love is like graffiti on the wall of my heart
Many waters cannot quench this love I have

I DON’T NEED YOUR GOD, I NEED YOUR ANOINTING!


   Just as one cannot separate water from being wet, you cannot separate God from the anointing

Just as one cannot separate water from being wet, you cannot separate God from the anointing. What the Church call anointing is a reflection of the character of God in a Photo Credit: www.wildolive.co.uk person’s life. Anointing is not goose pimples, a cliché, emotionalism nor mechanical influence nor human technique.

ANOINTING IS GOD…God’s power, wisdom, love, creativity, knowledge, and all that God is, flowing through human vessels, for the glory of God. The power or the ability to bear lasting fruitfulness is in the enabling grace of Christ. That was what Paul meant when He said; “I can do all things through Christ(the anointed one and His anointing) who strengthens me. (Phil 4:13)

I don’t need your God, I need your anointing… is a saddening reflection of the heartbeat and a false quest of a generation, willing to excel in life outside the confines ophoto credit: google imagesf the living logos. I want to do well in my ministry through the power He gives but not interested in the source of the oil.

My anointing or the anointing of God upon my life, cannot be given to any entity, even my children. Don’t be in shock! Brace up for the truth which sets free…Here is the thing; I live on a borrowed life of God, called the quality life or the abundant life. This life is anchored on my intimate relationship with God (eternal life), through Jesus Christ. Chew on this; “The release of the anointing on one’s life, is on the basis of our relationship with Jesus, through faith”.

DESIRE You can have a burning desire in your heart for the anointing of God upon my life, (ain’t nothing wrong with that)…one unique thing I can do for an individual, is to awaken them to the consciousness of the incredible presence of God, already working in them. Against this background, nurture them to build on a relationship with God, to unleash their uniqueness is a very important part of the process. It is totally impossible to give your personal relationship with God to another, and if one can’t give his or her relationship with God to others; I don’t think you can give to an individual, your anointing. Any Spirit filled person, can surely unveil unto a believer what God isimagesSUN4KAOZ already doing in their life, by the guidance of the Holy Spirit, through prophecy, word of knowledge, teaching etc. and lay their hands on them to confirm His will in their life. At the end of the day…your anointing was not giving to you by the one who laid his hands on you. They were just a vital channel within God’s activity. This is very simple!

WHAT ABOUT TIMOTHY?
Paul didn’t give Timothy his gift or calling. He awakens Tim to what God was already doing in his life. Paul writes–1Timothy 4:14: “Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you by prophecy with the laying on of the hands of the leadership.” In other words, God spoke what he was doing in Timothy life to the Elders, and they approved of him into ministry by the laying of their hands.
Paul laying hands on Timothy was not with the intention to pass on a gift or power as it has become very common in some Christian circles. (People are running around for the next man of God in town for impartation, instead of looking up to the man above for His anointing)

2 Timothy 1:6-7 “Therefore I remind you to stir up the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands. For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”

In other words Timothy should not succumb to the pressure from others because of his youth, but become conscious of the power, love, and sound mind which were already given to all who believe in Christ.  You already got it my friend. Don’t step outside of God for a short cut. Jesus is the way, the truth and the life.

DID TIMOTHY LEARN A GREAT DEAL FROM PAUL?
Yes, he did. When you walk with a man who reflects the character of God…his God will be your focus, and the wisdom of God in his life becomes your pursuit. (You can tap into practical common sense and supernatural principles from a man who has learned a lot from his walk with God, and what life experiences has taught them)

COPYCATS As a result of a desperate want of a generation for the “anointing”, from men on the frontline (Celebrated Pastors and Prophets, Music leaders etc.) in Photo Credit: smallbiztrends.comministry, there is a subtle trademark of deception in the body of Christ. At the end of almost every 30 minute segment of a Christian program on TV, by televangelist, something is always being sold as a point of contact for the transfer of the anointing. (I don’t have problem with things being sold on TV, but it has to be sold with the right motivation)  I have personally seen folks functioning like clouds without rain in ministry setting; they are empty barrels, a stench in the nose, a sounding brass without a clear sound of direction and purpose. They have ignored genuine relationship with Christ, and substituted God with techniques. When you lack an authentic relationship with Christ, you will not have the wisdom to act right. You can copy others by watching how they do stuff and be famous in what you do, but time will tell how that dead works, will be sustained.

Jesus must be the center of His Church and not man. I humbly plead with Church leaders to bring those who are desperate for the unction to function to the revelation of living Christ, who only can work in us both to will and to do of His good pleasure. We can’t let our egos take the place of Christ

Beloved, don’t develop the habit to copy or emulate some pace setters in society, through “special learning”, to give up your authentic self.  I am not a fan of fake it till you makes it. Our identity in God cannot be faked. We should cherish the originality of the graces that Christ gives. There are a lot of great and ordinary people I follow from far and near to draw inspiration, wisdom, counsel, creativity, leadership etc. but these unique people, are not my central focus in life. Christ is!

THE SUBTLE MECHANISM
Some people also believes, if you want to function in certain levels of the anointing, it’s not about prayer, holiness or a relationship. Just sow a special seed offering for a great man of God, and you will definitely walk in their anointing. Here is a thought to ponder on…who gives the anointing? God or Man or Special mediators! Can you buy it? Let scripture speak for itself; Acts 8 is an interesting picture of what is on the table today.  Simon the Sorcerer sees a unique manifestation of the anointing in Peters life, and he offered to pay for the grace bestowed on Peter that he can unleash such power to impact others.

Acts 8:19-20 “Give me this power also, that anyone on whom I lay hands may receive the Holy Spirit.”  Your money perish with you because imagesCAF2TDO1you thought the gift of God could be purchased with money.… Repent therefore of this your wickedness and pray God if perhaps the thought of your heart may be forgiven you. For I see that you are poisoned with bitterness and bound by iniquity (Acts 8.22-23)

GIVING There is nothing wrong in sowing money into the life of a great person, or a ministry for a worthy cause…which will probably give you favorable access into their life, to learn certain life principles and be activated in your heart to pursue God, who is not respecter of persons. Access into the lives of great people, should always challenge one to learn their secret walk with God, and not directly for the fruit of their life, with wrong motives. To Copy ones greatness as quick fix to deny process of growth, will not even help one to survive the test of time. Many have faded into oblivion like a 15 seconds commercial, whether it was ministry or business enterprise, because of lack of balance in relationship with God and the wisdom to manage what He gives.

YOU ARE UNIQUE IN YOUR OWN ANOINTING
Friend you carry the fullness of God in your born again spirit. You are living in a better covenant, where God resides in you permanently. You can only trust Him, for the seal and the guarantee of the spirit in your life, to be unleashed in the capacities of your calling. Whether you flip burgers in a restaurant, a waitress, cleaner, painter, entrepreneur, publisher, public speaker, an athlete, a pastor or government appointee; the anointing will cause you to excel. The anointing is not limited to the four walls of Photo Credit:shugsprisonblog.blogspot.com -a chapel. Corinthians reads ‘Now He who establishes us with you in Christ and has anointed us is God who has also sealed us and given us the Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee.’ We have been sealed with the Holy Spirit living inside us.

1 John 2.27: ‘These things I have written to you about those who try to deceive you. But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things and is true and is not a lie and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him.’ The anointing who is the Holy Spirit is in us, it is He who guides us into the truth so we can glorify the Lord Jesus (John 1613-15). We are certainly not glorifying the Lord when we go to men to get the Holy Spirit; it is a lack of understanding and a lack of faith. God will give you deeper understanding of Himself. Be far from deception and walk by faith in the ability that God gives and nurture your daily relationship with Jesus, the anointed One.

Disclaimer:
I do not discourage coaching, mentoring, giving, submission, laying of hands and learning from others, whether it’s through the Tube or Church revivals, to improve one’s uniqueness.

LOVE IN THE AIR OR IN THE HEART??


LOVE IN THE AIR OR IN THE HEART

Can you imagine if the force of love and its effects can be felt daily just as the wind blows from the horizon and we enjoy its breeze?

Most often in a relationship when circumstances are perfect you could just smell and breathe love but the unfortunate thing is that, it does not stay long than for it to be fizzled into the thin air.

Love is suppose to be a lifestyle of affection and goodwill towards God, others and ourselves. Our momentary love builds and destroys. It goes to the altar on Sunday and goes to the divorce court on Friday. Our love from this fallen world is a bankrupt love – we honor God when the music is good and we are on emotional high on Sundays. Jesus corrected this form of error employed by men in their falling nature to play act in the presence of God when He encountered the Pharisees. He rebuked them sharply;

Matthew 15:7-9 (NKJV) 7Hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy about you, saying: ‘These people draw near to Me with their mouth, And[a] honor Me with their lips, But their heart is far from Me. And in vain they worship Me, Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.

The Only way we can love just as He loved us unconditionally when we were yet sinners is to embrace His love for us. Your Bible says in 1 John 4:19 “We love Him[a] because He first loved us”. Do you abide in His love for you? God loves you not because of your good works and neither does He love you because you qualify for His love. God’s nature is to love. He is a being that want to love you and shower you with His goodness. There is nothing you can do to make Him love you more or not to love you anymore. Yes there is nothing!

It is recorded in the scripture for our profit, the heart of God concerning His children – “Romans 8:35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword”?

Don’t let no man imprison you with guilt and condemnation to hinder you from enjoying the real goodness of your Father in heaven, who loves you so dearly and will continue to love others through you as you abide in His love. Its totally impossible to give to people what you don’t have. When you receive it, its easy to diffuse it out effortlessly.

Are you afraid of tomorrow and not sure if life has anything good on the table for you? Most Christians have this knowledge that God is love. Do you know it is one thing to know that God is love and another thing to believe that He loves you? Do you believe that He loves you? Its is in that believe, rest and trust that breaks the yoke of uncertainty and fear for tomorrow. This believe will settle peace into your heart with the liquid presence of His grace to walk with your chest out and a big smile on your face. Your heart is full of God’s power on your behalf to favor you beyond measure. The Doctor’s report don’t burry you in despair! You can now look with hope and appropriate what the perfect work of Christ has wrought for you on the cross of Calvary for your healing and total wholeness. Halleluiah!love-by-josiah-kopp-free-photo7351

Meditate on this scripture today and walk out from the temporal emotions of love and be established in the perfect love of God which cast out all fears and to be able to enjoy the best fro all your relationships. You are dearly loved and perfectly cared by the lover of your soul, Jesus Christ.

1 John 4:16-18 (NKJV) 16 And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him. 17 Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world. 18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.

Is there any problems you will want me to stand with you in prayer. Send your prayer request via pray4change@gmailcom and expect a turn around in your life. Jesus still sits on the throne. Everything gonna be alright in Jesus name. Amen!

MY JOURNEY


The blessing of the Lord–it makes [truly] rich, and He adds no sorrow with it [neither does toiling increase it]. (Proverbs 10:22 AMP)

I still remember it like yesterday; I was just jumping around as a young kid with my friends in front of a neighbors house. A certain man I will call Mr. Lesley, who was very rich and well respected in the area, parked his car and stepped out with his entourage with some Tony Montana (Scarface) swag.

Immediately, I caught his attention and then he paused for a while looked directly into my eye through to my soul. He inquired from a man I will call Mr. Ray; “whose son is this young man.” Mr. Ray replied; “his parents just live across the street.”
Mr. Lesley being fed with this little information about my parents (he knew they were poor) stirred at me again with this disappointment in his eye and then said what would program my mind into hopelessness, anger and resentment against my parents in my early teens. He said; “if this young man’s parents were rich, his future would have been awesome”

The weight of Mr. Lesley’s words left my pre-teen mind going in circles everyday. I knew him to be rich and well respected by everybody and who am I not to believe in his words. His words cut through my soul and chained my heart into a pitch black darkness of fear.

I was so much loved by family, friends and everybody who saw me but I was suffering from low self esteem, emptiness and a void that widening itself everyday as I am reminded by Mr. Lesley’s statement. He has programmed an innocent young man into disbelief about the future and very bitter with my parents (I thought if they would have worked hard, they would have been rich for me to become great), but he probably had no idea of the deep wounds I was nursing each passing seconds of the day.

It is only the truth that sets us free. It is rather unfortunate that many are not hearing the truth which sets you totally free independent of your ability. It is called the free gift of grace. Bingo! the scales fell off of my eyes, the chains were broken from my hands and a new song of hope was embedded into my spirit by the Lord in my late teens. I knew then that, I heard a lie; total lie from the pit of hell. The devil saw my future and used the carnal mind and heart of men to try to rearrange the purpose of God for my life.

Friend, be careful about what you hear today! Men’s assessment, opinion, and estimation of you is not the final cut to your life purpose. Your destiny is not determined by your family status, color of your skin or your present situation. It is the blessing of the Lord…

BONDAGE


BONDAGE

I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel— not that there is another one, but there are some who trouble you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed. (Galatians 1:6-8 ESV)

When ministers of the gospel portray God as a more distant Father from the rest and only personal to some “distinguished few” like themselves, so to keep men always grappling at their feet and look to them for hope instead of looking unto Jesus with affection as dearly beloved sons and daughters. That form of Christianity is total bondage and enslavement in it’s highest order
