THIS MONTH IN HISTORY- Truth on Trial “And now I say unto you, Refrain from these men, and let them alone: for if this counsel or this work be of men, it will come to nought: But if it be of God, ye cannot overthrow it; lest haply ye be found even to fight against God” Acts 5:38-39 At this time 20 years ago, the deep church bared it’s fangs; they got on our matter! For months on end, the news media in all forms was agog with accusations and malicious falsehoods against our Man of God. We watched as some of those we saw as the greats of faith peddled falsehoods, questioned the veracity of the miracles and the crowds, and vowed to end the Ministry of the Man of God by the time they were done. They said he performed miracles by some eccentric “finger of God”... They said he was initiated into some cult... They said he was of the “shamans”... They said the miracles were staged... They said the crowd images were doctored... They said his doctrine was false... They told parents to withdraw their children from Christ Embassy Churches & BLW fellowships... They hoped to sow doubt in our minds but we didn’t need the media to tell us who our father is. The weak amongst us fell and left (ostensibly because they were not of us)... It was a time of de-weeding... On the Campuses it was a war; a major conflagration! as the children of the modern Pharisees took a cue from their fathers, firing their cannons and spewing their malicious venom, attempting to frustrate our work with negative publicity and overbearing influence on the authorities. They called Papa a fraud... They said he was a money launderer... They contrived to suspend him from a body he never belonged to... Some went as far as conspiring for a take down... Truth was on trial! We prayed like never before! Seeds were flying recklessly; we sowed like never known! Then came the Night the City of Aba stood still- the Aba Miracle Crusade. The disciples of these modern day Pharisees showed up. We were publicizing and they were publicizing too. But GOD!! But GOD put their work to nought! It was such a statement that silenced the devil for a short season till he was dealt a fatal blow the next year at NOB SPECIAL, Lagos. Time some say, is the proof of Wisdom. Time has come and gone and in all, look where we are today. God honored the Man of God; God amplified his voice.. God gave him influence beyond compare.. God increased his greatness.. God gave him Sons from every corner of the globe so vast like unto the host of the Lord.. God multiplied him into many more Pastor Chrises.. He giveth more grace to the humble. I look for those men today & I don’t see them. Their voices so reduced. God left them where they were. He didn’t take away anything from them. This magnificent house the Man of God built is not a pack of cards! The troops he commands are no lilly livered sissies but a division of well cooked, battle hardened militants! Onward March!

RUN BACK INTO IT! 😄 💰 💰 🏃♀️ 🏃♂️ Let me take you on a trip. So it was somewhere in the 90s, we (Pastor Freedom Wealth-Eriya and I) were on this cruise with the Highly Esteemed Pastor Tom across some cities- Aba, Uyo and Calabar visiting the young CE Churches at the time. We were Chapter Pastors/Zonal Secs at UNICAL & NAU, Awka respectively. We had many such moments & enjoyed those kind of times with Pastor Tom as he often serenaded us with stories of the exploits of our Man of God on Campus, the spiritual experiences with the Man of God, how the Man of God tamed the cultists, the prayers in the forests/bushes of E-Town (Ekpoma), the village crusades, raw ministry et al. (History is really so important! I dare say a man with a sense of his heritage is very different from one without. Those stories did something to us). Well, we were to be in the Church in Calabar (that’s another day’s story as the Pastor of the Church at the time showed us Pepper, boy! no be small pepper😀😀) and also for this outreach organized by Pastor Freedom in Unical. On the way to Calabar, Pastor Tom’s car- an old faithful dark blue Mitsubishi Lancer that had seen many missionary trips suddenly jerked and stopped on the way. It was about 8pm on a lonely stretch. Whilst we were standing looking like there was no way out and thinking that the only plausible solution was to flag down any commercial vehicle that might pass by, Pastor Tom said “gentlemen, we’ve got to have this fixed. We will move with this car this night and now”. Haa! Impossible is nothing! We opened the hood and did some fixing. It was an electrical problem (we didn’t know for sure what electrical problem anyway. We just did the trial and error thing you know😀). When we were done cutting and joining some wires, we needed to tape them to avoid any accidental sparks but alas! there was no tape and it was dark on a lonely stretch of road with no buildings or any form of light for as far as we could gaze. Well, the Unical fellowship secretary was with us on this trip and her hair was braided. Pastor Freedom being a visionary😀😀 called her out of the car and said “turn around”, as she did, he quickly loosened two black tapes from the base of two rolls of her braided hair and we taped the wires and set out again. Lesson- The solution is always nigh thee!😀😀 When this tour of the churches was over few days later, we dropped off at different locations. As I dropped off, I had no cash in my pocket to hail a taxi, bike or anything that could get me back to my abode. So I quipped to Pastor Tom “Pastor, please I need cash to get back. I’ve run out of money on this trip”. He chuckled and calmly told me, “NO PROBLEM, JUST RUN BACK INTO IT” and he went away. Phew! I stood there wondering what to do for a while. Then I started laughing... hailed a bike, mounted the bike and told the rider where I was heading. As we rode off, I started preaching to him and by the time we got to my destination my message had just ended, I disembarked, led him in the prayer of salvation. Then somehow dipped my hand in my pocket and out came some money that I knew I didn’t have there before! So, it worked I thought to myself! I actually ran back into it never to run out of it again! And trust me, from that day, anytime someone has said to me "...I've runout of money", I had my ready answer- RUN BACK INTO IT! 😄😄 Happy Birthday Dearest Pastor Tom Sir! For the blessing you are to me and my family and the grace to be part of yours thank you Sir. I celebrate you always! Thank you for touching my life in many impactful ways and all the inspiring moments with you. Today, you're celebrated by so many. I love you evermore Sir.

𝗦𝗢.. 𝗪𝗛𝗔𝗧 𝗗𝗢 𝗬𝗢𝗨 𝗞𝗡𝗢𝗪? A Cerebral Professor was on a trip to an Island in the coastal area of a certain country (You can guess🙂 😉). The only link to the Island was by boat. Alighting at the jetty, the Professor’s eyes were transfixed on a certain young boy of about 17 who was in his boat calling out for passengers. Keenly interested in having some conversation with the young boy, the Professor decided to board the young lad’s boat to educate and talk some sense into him about going to school. So they set off. The Professor couldn’t get his eyes off the young lad. Some distance out to sea, a conversation ensued; PROF: Young boy, aren’t you too young to be doing this? You should be in school, boy! You’re wasting your life! BOY: Oga, man must survive o! Forget that school thing o! After some time, Prof continues; PROF: Young boy, do you know anything about Biology? BOY: Sir, bio what? I’ve never heard that before! PROF: oh! Young man you’ve lost 25% of your life! Sometime passes and Prof goes on; PROF: Young boy, do you know anything about Geography? BOY: Geo what? I don’t know what that is! PROF: ooh really?? Young man, you’ve lost another 25% of your life! A while later the Professor staring at the young man through his glasses continues... PROF: Young man, do you know something about Astronomy? BOY: Sir, Astro what? I’ve never heard a word like that Sir. PROF: well, there you go. Lost another 25% of your life! Just then, some strong waves start gathering at sea, steadily increasing in strength and the young man was doing his best to maintain control of the boat which was quickly filling up with sea water as he both tried to bail out the water and steady the boat at the same time with little success. At this time the young man turned to the Professor in the midst of the storm; BOY: Oga, do you know anything about swimming? PROF: (in a shaky voice) n..n..no..oo, wwwhhyy are you asking ss ss such a qq q question? BOY: aah! Oga Professor! You don’t know anything about swimming? Sorry Sir, that means you have lost 100% of your life today! That said, the young boy dove into the water and left the learned Professor in the boat buffetted by strong winds and set to capsize. So, what knowledge do you have?😊 Today, we are overwhelmed with information. It’s everywhere. What’s missing sometimes is not information but understanding. You can be overloaded with the glut of information overload. Anyone can be informed but only wise people see God’s perspective of the current events happening in our world today. Information and wisdom are not the same. Go for the Word & be buoyed! “Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding” Pro 4:7 #3kindsofknowlege #3kindsofwisdom #pcdl #wisdom #knowledge #theword

And the LORD said unto me, Behold, I have put my words in thy mouth. See, I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plant. Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Jeremiah, what seest thou? And I said, I see a rod of an almond tree. Then said the LORD unto me, Thou hast well seen: for I will hasten my word to perform it'. At our times of prayer today, we'll pray fervidly in tongues of the Spirit, and for the nations of the world, in accordance with the verses of Scipture above, to bring governments and their leaderships into alignment with God's divine plan and purpose for this age and time.

𝗪𝗘 𝗗𝗜𝗘𝗗 𝗕𝗘𝗙𝗢𝗥𝗘 𝗪𝗘 𝗖𝗔𝗠𝗘 𝗛𝗘𝗥𝗘. “Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints” Jude 1:3 James Calvert, was a missionary from Pickering, England who sometime in 1838, was sent as a missionary in company of a few others to the islands of FIJI, to labour amongst the tribes many of whom were cannibals at the time. He remained there for 18 years, during which he achieved great feats for the Gospel. On arrival, the ship captain tried to dissuade or turn him back, saying, “You will lose your life and the lives of those with you if you go among such savages.” To that, James Calvert firmly replied, “WE DIED BEFORE WE CAME HERE.” Reminiscent of the Words of the great apostle Paul “For to me, to live is Christ, to die is gain” (Phil 1:21) and “Neither count I my life as dear unto me...” (Acts 20:24). This Gospel didn’t come to us in golden cans or vessels. It came through blood; the blood of men and women- God’s warriors! And as our Man of God once said, “...we can’t walk away”. We too are warriors, infact- the ULTIMATE WARRIORS!😊 The evil men who wreaked havoc on the world with their foiled gamble for control through the FRAUDEMIC, they did & are doing what they’ve got to do and we’ve got to do what we’ve got to do! Damn the lawless laws! Jail, fine, persecute or kill us? Only puts us in good company with our forbears. The gospel spreading everywhere with the unhindered advancement of the Churches of Christ is a vision we live for but if needs be, it is a cause for which we are prepared to die (I sure am). WE DIED BEFORE WE CAME HERE... We died to personal ambitions, goals, dreams/desires. We died so that Christ alone may live in & through us.. We died before we came here so there would be no hindrance or barriers within us to follow or take Christ into areas of the world where there is great darkness yearning for light, irrespective of the adversaries.. We died before we came here so there would be nothing to lure us back to lives of seeming comfort; lives of our own wants, pleasures, desires and dreams. There’s the difference between the call and a dream. The call may ‘kill’ you. A dream will ‘cuddle’ you. Ever heard follow your heart? Depends on what’s innit! follow the Word! It’s not a sacrifice but an honor to serve our King! We are at war! We’ve counted the cost, it’s worth it and we’re ready to pay because WE TOO DIED BEFORE WE GOT HERE! We’re now in the fiercest part of the CONFLICT OF THE AGES. If not you, who? If not now, when? #war #passion #expansionism #prayer #ministry #protagonism #preparation #kingdom
