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

TRUTH IS YOUR MOTHER


She is the light which brought you forth
From the dark womb of depravity pain
Pursue her; delighting yourself in her light
Don’t ever say; “I have come of age, there is
No need of going back to the basics of wisdom.”
Truth is your mother. Calmly, sit on her lap;
Feeding your soul, nourishing your heart.

OH, FAIREST OF THE FAIR !!

Glamorously she walked out of the bedroom

Virgin feet on the cold wood virgin floor

She looked through the window;

The window which faces nowhere

In her silent look;

She soliloquized 99 questions, but no one heard

Idea captured her imagination; lightening speed

She is enchanted by his silky voice and craftiness

A face for her he invented

Behind it she died, prayed, lived and died

She wore it so graceful

When she died no one knew she had died twice

Though she is dead, she still lives

Though she is dead, she still speaks

A face with feet walking on eerie Elm Street

Browsing through dark alleys in search for a new client

He is a romantic sniper;

Silently, he has killed all his prey with one shot

A cut through shot to the heart

Fairest daughter of the King;

Arouse not thy love until it so desires

He is too good to be ignored at first sight

She is struggling to control herself

He came here because of her

She is thinking it’s her moment

The voice in her heart; too loud

She can hardly hear her own voice

Shhhhh…

A silence

A flashback

She recollects mom last words on her dead bed

Out of her purse; a portrait picture she pulled

A perfect image of mom’s assailant is on the dance floor

A walk away to the exit door which leads to destiny; eternity

She was not ashamed losing momentary fame

The long silent walk through the side walk;

A victory lap to the podium for a gold medallion

WISDOM UNMERITTED


“Divine wisdom is the towel which dries out perspiration and restlessness from the face of a failure, and moisturizes him with a winning attitude, to face tomorrow with conviction and passion”

– McDaniels Gyamfi –

Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding. (Proverbs 4:7 NKJV)

Sin corrupted the mind of humanity, to the extent that walking in alignment with the thoughts of God was hardly possible. This is the fall from glory in the dimension of

www.graceology.org
Effortless Life Series

our mental capabilities. Adam; the first man, was not educated in man’s educational system. His complete knowledge of God and all the creation, surpasses the intelligence of our modern sciences and that of the wisdom of the ages. He had a conscience that was so sharp and accurate. Guessed work was not a part of his DNA. Adam knew the very mind of God, effortlessly; naming of all the animals in the garden of Eden was executed with precision and with such grace, just as God would have named each one of them.

The Lord God formed out of the ground every living animal of the field and every bird of the air. He brought them to the man to see what he would name them, and whatever the man called each living creature, that was its name. So the man named all the animals, the birds of the air, and the living creatures of the field, but for Adam no companion who corresponded to him was found. (Genesis 2:19-20 NET)

Wisdom is the ability to know what to do when you don’t know how to do it. You can also say that, wisdom is the application of knowledge. Adam did have a perfect knowledge and unusual ability to execute so well than any other creature, because he was created in the very image of God. The believer is not an upgrade in status; through recreation. We have received a brand new nature in the likeness of God, through the second Adam, as icons of godly wisdom to execute the will of God. The child of God can walk in supernatural wisdom, irrespective of how low ones IQ level is. Yes! It does not matter how bad your grades were, in high school or college!

How do you see yourself my friend? Do you feel like nothing good can come out from you, because of how negatively you have branded yourself or have allowed the standards of society to cut you into nothing? I dare you today and double dare you to rise from the self defeatism branding. You are not a sinner saved by grace into a sinful nature of ignorance. You were a sinner saved by grace to inherit the righteous nature and wholeness nature of God, to prosper in your mental capacity.  Here is the good news; Christ has become to us wisdom from God to grant us the ability to know, understand and to connect us into the purpose of God through the indwelling Spirit.

The world of sin does not have the guiding light of a higher consciousness of God; it is the believer who has been endowed with supernatural knowledge of the plan and the will of God through our regenerated spirit, to be able to walk in Godly wisdom in this life. The failure of the Church in the 21st century is due to her lack of dependence on this gracious place of the quality life of God, which enables us to download profound and absolute solutions for our chronic lives and perpetual uncertainties.

1 Corinthians 2:16 (NKJV) For “who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him?” But we have the mind of Christ.

walk not aloneWe have the mind of Christ…Do you know that if you constantly walk with a wise man, you will literally be changed by his wisdom to act in his principles and values
in life; in so doing you literally become skillfully in your doings. The mind of Christ is a position and identity through grace; in Christ Jesus. The Holy Spirit escorts us daily into the very creative thoughts and principles of the creator of the universe, to act with certainty and peace without any iota of doubts or failure. What are you talking about McDaniels? One had to be well-educated in formal educated for you to be abreast with times, seasons and purpose!! I do not discourage formal education. Education only touches the surface of life, but the deep things in life really belongs to God and He reveals it to His covenant children through the Holy Spirit.

I have personally seen great results in so many areas of my life and ministry over the years. I don’t consider myself as a smart guy by world’s standards – I live with this principle of allowing God’s word to dominate my mental faculties when I have to make a complex decision or step into a new horizon of God’s purpose for my life, in general. This grace is not reserved for some selected few; you can walk in this ability which has been given to you freely to know all things by listening to the voice of the Spirit and executing His perfect will in all things. Are you overwhelmed by life puzzles or you feel so inadequate to handle the difficulties of life? You have the mind of Christ…is Christ mind redundant? If you believe that your Saviors mind is without error or fail, and then understand that, just as He is so are you in this world. (See 1 John 4:17)

The believer has an advantage over the unbeliever. We can learn to trust the Holy Spirit to empower us to know the mind of God, because the finished work of Christ has placed the new creation believer in a position with His Father through Christ, to get access to the depths of His heart, about all things in life. Do you know salt and lightmy friend, that office politics cannot stop a believer to live beyond the expectations in the work place?

Cease every opportunity to excel at your work place whether you toss pizza or you mop the floor. Your boss or supervisors inability to drive the company to peak level performance frustrates his heart and changes his or her demeanor. He easily becomes angry for no reasons…in spite of all his management credentials and many years of experience in organizational maximization. You can calm him or her down with practical solutions that no management guru can offer, because you have access to the ocean of wisdom from above which can stabilize a tilting corporation. Your wisdom and guidance will marvel coworkers and superiors. How do I do that? Rest in your position in Christ and the wells of life flow through your mental outlet.

Joseph and Daniel were men who shined so bright in heathen nations. It is recorded in the Bible to remind us that mountains and odd situations do not stop the believer from shining. Was it because they (Joseph and Daniel) were schooled to be that great by men’s educational system? Surely they were educated through the system of their enslavement, but their dependence was on God was seen in complex situations which were beyond the wisdom of the wise. They outshone the wisdom of the wise, because God’s light was their guiding principle in their decisions. That is exactly what Jesus does for the believer whose mind is centered on Him – you shine almost all the time.

It is recorded about Daniel; Then this Daniel distinguished himself above the governors and satraps, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king gave thought to setting him over the highest realm of his kingdom. So the governors and satraps sought to find some charge against Daniel concerning the kingdom; but they could find no charge or fault, because he was faithful; nor was there any error or fault found in him. Daniel 6:3-4 (NKJV)

idlogo2And of Joseph, it is recorded of how he relies on Godly wisdom to helped fellow prisoners who were dealing with uncertainties in their life; Then the butler and the baker of the king of Egypt, who were confined in the prison, had a dream, both of them, each man’s dream in one night and each man’s dream with its own

interpretation. And Joseph came in to them in the morning and looked at them, and saw that they were sad. So he asked Pharaoh’s officers who were with him in the custody of his lord’s house, saying, “Why do you look so sad today?” And they said to him, “We each have had a dream, and there is no interpreter of it.” So Joseph said to them, “Do not interpretations belong to God? Tell them to me, please.” – Genesis 40:5-8(NKJV)

It is recorded in the New Testament of how the Spirit of Christ leads us into greener pastures, effortlessly. The dumb and the dumber by societies label can shout from the roof top through the valleys of darkness that wisdom is their portion too.

 1 Corinthians 2:10-13 (NKJV) 10 But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. 11 For which man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man, which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. 12 Now we 

a walk cover (1)

have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit that is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to 

us by God. 13 These things we also speak, not in words that man’s wisdom teaches but those the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

Don’t shut this book down friend – I am totally not against what secular education has done. These folks (Daniel and Joseph) prospered in the dark ages of history because they were favored by the light of God’s wisdom, for a greater purpose. This is your season and moment to plug yourself into the grace dimension of God, as you relinquish the throne you have built for self weakness and allow Christ to take the center stage of your life. Be still in prayer and in the meditation of the word for the renewing of the mind. Set yourself free from the shock of uncertainty holding society down and completely align your thoughts with the heartbeat of God. You will know what you have to do at any moment of your life. Wisdom is available to anyone who asks, and with a heart of faith, the shackles of fear shall be broken. You are wise in your position as covenant child; walk with solution expectations on your feet, with your eyes on Christ.

THE SPOKEN BLESSING


THE SPOKEN BLESSING.

LAW VS GRACE #100 | GRACE IS PERSONAL, THE LAW IS NOT

The incredible difference between the Old covenant of Law and the New covenant of grace is a mystery I will be writing about in my ensuing notes on Law vs. Grace Series, to throw light on God’s goodness towards people and the purpose of His new covenant. Many consider what separates the old covenant of law and the new covenant of grace is the blank page between the book of Malachi and Mathew. It sounds very funny, but you must understand it is one of the unknown mysteries in Christianity, which is hidden from the body of Christ, due to our emotional attachment to religious dogmas, wrong teachings, Church traditions that limits us from enjoying God’s best for our lives.

The law tells me how crooked I am. Grace comes along and straightens me out. – D.L. Moody 

THE LAW IS IMPERSONAL: It shows our place of inability to access the thoughts and ways of God, to be able to walk in alignment with Him. The old covenant folks could not connect personally to the loving, prosperous, whole and Fatherly heart of God. Only, selected few were able to connect with God from time to time to show His intent

others. To the Old Covenant saint, the Lords say; “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts. (Isaiah 55:8, 9 NKJV)

GRACE IS PERSONAL THROUGH THE INDWELLING HOLY SPIRIT: Grace came to show the heart of the Father, that individually we may know the very thoughts of God. God’s thoughts are no higher than our thoughts because His Spirit lives on the inside of us permanently with the ability of the mind of Christ to know the mind of God. Hallelujah!!


“But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God. For “who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him?” But we have the mind of Christ. (I Corinthians 2:10-12, 16 NKJV)

The New Covenant believer does not live a pointless and hassle life of walking into the unknown; trying to find fulfillment in life through human standards, which are practically based on self efforts and will power. Will power and self-dependence is a curse of the law, which always leads to catastrophe but a profitable life of purpose and direction is a fruit of the New Covenant through Christ….because of the capacity through the Holy Spirit, to download heavens thoughts in every situation to reign victoriously on earth, through Christ.

Beloved, my prayer for you today is that, you will not lean on your own understanding but be guided by the supernatural wisdom of God to effectively navigate through life effortlessly ====> 2 Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, 3 as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, (2 Peter 1:2-3 (NKJV)
