“And again I say to you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”- Matthew 19:24 NKJV
“The love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. Some have wandered away from the faith and have impaled themselves with a lot of pain because they made money their goal.”- 1 Timothy 6:10 CEB
Is money evil?
Will Christian life be easier without money?
Should a Christian have money?
Money itself is NOT evil. In fact, money is good and according to King Solomon through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, money is a defence (Ecclesiastes 7v12). Money is one of the blessings of GOD to be received with thanksgiving just like marriage and food (1 Timothy 4v3-4). Money, just like every other gifts of GOD only becomes an issue when we put our trust in it – when we begin to exalt the gift more than the Giver (Proverbs 11v28; Mark 10v24; 1 Timothy 6v17; Psalm 48v6-20).
Therefore, first of all, be contented with whatever you have and glorify GOD for and with it. For godliness with contentment is great wealth (1 Timothy 6v6).
Secondly, Jesus is not sad about His followers and joint-heirs having money, property or wealth as people usually misinterpreted from the conversation between Jesus and the rich young ruler (Matthew 19v15-30). He is only sad when our material possessions become our priority (take the place of GOD) in our lives. Have money, as much as possible under GOD, and use it (wealth) as a tool to serve GOD and further the advancement of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and His Kingdom.
Be the Joseph of Arimathaea (Mark 15v43-47; Matthew 27v57-61) and the Nicodemus (John 19v38-41) of your family, community and generation. By using your wealth, status and influence to better the lives of people & communities around you.
Grace be multiplied unto you!🙏
A hundred generations destroyed each year
By a demon we got the chains to imprison
With hunger and instant gratification
We let them loose
After all, we try to protect human rights
Yet we allow it take away human lives
This declaration is so simple
“Don’t drink and drive”
Life’s got many tears to folks, don’t add to it
My boy got accepted into college
Mum is really excited, but he can never be a grad
Because of someone’s youthful exuberant.
Let’s lock up the spirit
Safeguard the consumer with a taxi
Keep the road clean
Preserve the future
You too can #SaveThe100
Don’t drink and drive!
Ever felt pains before you went to bed
Thinking it would be gone overnight
Only to wake with it in the morning?
I’m talking about the pain
That pain reliever can’t relieve
Neither can pain-killers kill
The kind of pain that kills pain-killer
It’s really painful
And instead of dying it’s growing
Like pregnancy, it grows bigger every passing minutes
Unlike pregnancy it’s bearing no fruit
Like weeds in a precious garden
Turn on your twitter feeds
Everyone is spreading
The wildfire keeps spreading
Even the first responders are retweeting it
It has eaten so deeply into our lives
That it now becomes a part of our lives
WatchOut for Pain 2
The things I see
Eyes have not seen
Ears have not heard
A new identity is needed
Rather, a renewed identity
One only love can give
And only love can preserve
The things I see
Mouth cannot tell
They’re unlawful to utter
Not that they’re unlawful
They just don’t appeal to the senses
They are the unrefined gold
Stored in a deserted building.
The things I see
They scare me to death
But are the reason for my living
The dream of promised land in the land of captivity
A million kids with all identity going to school
From the land of hopelessness
The things I see
A vision beyond human percipience
But with your renewed identity
You can catch the glimpse and refine the gold
And from the land of hopelessness
Love, faith and hope fill the nations.
Child grows up
Graced up with superpowers
Yes, superpowers to overcome her fears
Though the road isn’t straight
The vacation isn’t pleasant
She knows deep down that she’s brave
She’s got the powers
More than wonder-woman
She’s got real power and courage
And she’s defeating the demons
One at a time
Yes, she’s got superpowers
She’s telling her stories
And one day we will all as always
Be proud of her
As we see her on our TV’s
Empowering young woman!
The enemies meant it for evil
But Grace turned it for her honour!

What is stronger than death if we will all die?
How strong is death if its part of life?
If we will die someday why should we be afraid of death?
Yet, we will not all die because One died for us all
He paid the prize so we will all become change for Him
We are dead to the fear of death
Death died before we were even born
And we resurrected with the power over death
Immortality is brought back to light
So let us let our lights so shine before men
That they see our fearlessness over death
And glorify the One who paid the prize
For death has no power over the risen
Happy Victory Life
