*Deep Thoughts* ... A picture of Mars and I laugh
Why spend so much billions to send a bot to Mars to search for life when we can't spare a dime to feed the life on earth?
Why so much money on research for guns, bombs and bullets when we can't seem to raise enough to cook a pack of noodles for the man on the street…?
Why leave the projects in pieces and put together a fighter Jet of billions of Dollar...?
Why leave the classrooms empty and the military bases filled with new explosives...?
why scream of terrorism when the walls of knowledge are down and bombs abound with morons in turbans and gowns around to blow away unsung because the life they live is meaningless and they see no reason why they shouldn't take more with them to heaven or hell?
Why run for the medals on the pitch while the race we run within is unending with rage and bitterness to win?
Why the talk of war when we can preach the gospel of peace and teach the earth to listen to it?
Why the reach for glory on the moon when the earth we know and own is torn and worn and all we have to blame for the carcass we bread is the Ozone layer and global warming?
Why create enemies that never existed just to be seen as strong and kill the sons and fathers and friends and patriots who fight for love of country, blinded by the love of God?...
Why hide the truth in lines of codes know to a few and broadcast the lies about life in all languages on CNN, BBC et al?
Why hide the beauty of Africa and show the world the slums of Zimbabwe, the Massai in Kenya, depicting the jungles of Zambia, the arid desert of Niger and Ajegunle in Nigeria as the real Africa?
Why not the plush temperate plateaus in Jos, the fat banks of Abuja that is daily robbed by the crown, the beautiful plains of J'burg and the beautiful heart of my mother?
Why show me the history of Africa as written by John Bull, James and Jill on paper and not the history of my rich heritage as written by Mazembe, Attah and Arogundade in my invaluable curios hidden behind bars and walls in Europe and not in my Palace and shrines where the wisdom that carved it needed it to be?
Why keep the Bronze head of Benin and the Jewels of the pyramids in the Museum of her majesty when the men you met on the "Cape of Hope" were primeval and only worth a peice of mirror?
Why is my history so precious so valuable, rare, unusual, and intriguing that you kept it a secret from me, never letting go and you have nothing to show for your untold wisdom than tales of destruction, death and pain brewed by your abandonment of nature that i daily preserve?.
Why are you now running back to the nature you destroyed?
Why now back to the cherubic and holiest unknown that Sango commanded with anger and Oya with the tying of her wrapper in waves...
I wanna save the world from the people in it without a gun or calvar vest on me...
I wanna rescue the lives that live on earth from the bots that roam and rule it with the intelligence and wisdom God as placed within it and not the life or wisdom of Mars or the celestial...
All I wanna do is live so they can...and not kill to wear the crown that I will leave to join the dust from whence my Adam is formed
NB: NASA, BOKO HARAM, CNN etc ... Revolution, Evolution a new standard is coming soon

God, can you still understand us here?
I grow up knowing that there's a place where any type if human can go for help and rescue
I look forward to going to church every Sunday
I would dance my heart out with no money in my pocket
I would go back home feeling so happy and fulfilled
But as I grow older, church becomes so different
It started looking like what I can't fathom
It becomes the more you give, the more familiar your face would become to the "man of God"
You give little you are known little
You have nothing, you mean nothing
Church becomes all about the clique you belong
It becomes so hard to have a church if you have no job because tithe has to be paid hence you are not yet a bonafide member
Those days you put money in the offering basket without even your left hand knowing what you give to GOD but now people give to "God" with their full names boldly written on it
Hmmmm! I am like
“Who is this accountability to God or Man of God?”
Hmmmm! God I just hope you still understand, at least that the world is now highly civilized and that everything has changed to the world standard and not the Bible's way
When you go to the club, everybody leaves without anyone back biting but now the church is the headquarter of gossips, each clique gossiping about another
God I hope you still understand?
Church has now become a weekly red carpet if you don't have those outstanding clothes, maybe you should consider doing your own service with your family at home
Church that I read about in the Bible
Is supposed to mend your broken life and help be the best in your walk with God but now consider bringing enough money if you need to even see the friendly side of the man of God
Most churches now teach you prosperity just for you to bring your tithe and if you do otherwise you are in the black book of the man of God
Every church has the interpretation of the bible according to their conveniences
God I just hope you still understand that the man of God needs to gather wealth?
Jesus, according to what we read in the bible, He always shield His people and provide for them in many ways but now the congregation must take the heat and shield the man of God
Man of God would collect money from politicians and command his congregation to vote for a preferred candidate because he would claim that God has told him to
God, do you still understand this man of God?
Pride, preference, deceit, gossips, fornication, adultery, indecency and all countless evils now reside in the church yet the man of God can't see
He can only see the checks, the envelopes, the luxurious gifts and the "big men" in the church
YOU have said that in your word that when you come back
Will you meet faith on earth?
Also that the judgment would start from the church
Now I know why you said that
The church is filled with evils and the people who should say the truth are the ones deceiving the people!
God, I just hope you still understand us?
When I say I can't even tell who the man of God is
I hope you know I sincerely don't know?
God, I hope you still understand us?
If I remember correctly, the unbelievers named people who act like Christ Christians
But now people's acts don't portray their Christianity anymore instead it's part of their introduction
“I am a Christian”
Unbelievers now rejoice at our follies
Oh come come! See them that said they are Christians
Hmmmm! My Lord, my God
I hope you can still understand everything!!!

The Church is actually YOU
Let's do this real quick before people start calling me a pastor...I am not one and going by the current definition of that profession, I don't think I'll ever want to be one... Just like Jesus, call me Rabi.
I'm that kinda brother that has a weakness for everything God made, yes I'm totally natural but there is this thing with Hennessey VSoP that makes me assume it's natural, I guess it's the fact that I've convinced myself that what Jesus did was convert a normal "shayo" to the VSoP version of it in Canaan on that fateful day he launched His arrival with an induced miracle... Now I get it, the water was turned to a supernatural "shayo", now I know why, Hennessey VSoP must be supernatural.
Before I distract you away from why I choose to continue with my father's business today, must first of all clearly say this without fear of favour all over again God No Dey Live For Church #GodNoDeyLiveForChurch.
When Christ completed his redemptive mission here on Earth, He handed things over to the spirit form of the Godhead "The Holy Spirit" whose first interaction with his apostles was recorded in the upper room saga in the year of our Lord AD. When the outpouring of the spirit occurred, it was in a meeting well attended one and from the rumour recorded in ACT 2, it was witnessed by both Jews and the Gentiles, and I'm almost sure an Igbo man must have been dear interpreting when Peter started speaking in Igbo language. According to the acts recorded, the entrance of the Holy Spirit did not possess the building or the vessels present in the upper room, it entered into the apostles and manifested expressly in them for all to see. I'm almost sure that nobody went back to the upper room to offer some form of special prayers in it or use it as a point of contact or some form ritualistic shrine out of it for the Holy Spirit because they knew that God was in them and not in the building #GodNoDeyLiveForChurch
"The veil is torn, the stone is rolled, Hallelujah! Jesus has risen...". I'm sure nobody is worshiping in His tomb today.
The finished work of Christ broke the veil of the temple, revealing the former holy of holies to all and establishing the high priesthood of Jesus ultimately. 40 years after his death, the temple was destroyed as he had prophesied and the genealogy of the Levites were lost with it. It became obvious that he meant it when he terminated the contract that existed between God and the buildings of stone, concrete and clay that was instituted by God himself initially. The purpose of the temples and altars were for offering sacrifices of redemption and for burnt offerings for the atonement of sins, but when Christ redeemed all, the altar was no longer required, our High Priest had chosen a new temple which was and is still the heart of you and me, applicable to only those who open when he comes knocking.
If the temples were destroyed as an indicator of the end of the era of sin and sacrifices to usher in a new age that was won by the death and resurrection of Christ, why then are we still building temples, monument and cathedrals in the name of Jesus Christ? You're surprised? I am Flabberwhelmed and Overghasted. Even the early church and apostles were constantly in motion with no permanent building or kiosk, the meeting and fellowship was more important than the venue.
Why then do we build large span of brick, metal and mortar for the purpose of business and in the name of God, only opened when there is offerings to be receive, tithes to be demanded and once we are done, we put it under locks and keys while Jesus is locked out in the cold harley, wrapped in cardboard and begging for alms? He said in his words that "Whatsoever you do to the needs of thy brother, you have done it to me"
He reminded us of this days when he said "When I was sick, you didn't help me, when I was in Prison, you didn't visit me, when I was homeless, you locked your door on me and when I was hungry you didn't give me to eat" and we asked when did we did we do all this things and the answer is right above.
What is the purpose of a cathedral of 3km2 when Jesus is out in the cold desolate, what is the purpose of a church when his real temple, your heart lies in ruin, explain it to me, why build such a large dwelling and luck it up in the name of Jesus when he neither lives in it nor have any interest in it while the real church is abandoned to waste under the bridge in Oshodi.
God does not live in building made with hands, it was quite clearly stated in Acts 17:23-26 with reasons so there is absolutely nothing sacred about a church building or the more admonished altar, it was not built for God in the first place so you won't find Him living in any of such properties. You are the church, the house that God is building and he's only interested in living in your heart. 2Chro 2:6 says
"But who is able to build him an house, seeing the heaven and heaven of heavens cannot contain him? who am I then, that I should build him an house, save only to burn sacrifice before him?"
Remember He what he said in Matt 18:19-20
"Again I say to you, that if two of you agree on earth about anything that they may ask, it shall be done for them by My Father who is in heaven. For where two or three have gathered together in My name, I am there in their midst."
and not.." wherever a multitude is gathered in an auditorium", all you need to declare heaven on earth is your neighbour or a friend and not a pastor. He will definitely honour His words when two or thousands are gathered in anywhere in His name whether canopy or auditorium, but when you are done, He's no longer there, He left with you and me and wherever the meeting is held is just a building that God has no spiritual or physical connection with #GodNoDeyLiveForChurch
Stop running to the mountains, He's already in you, stop rolling before any vane altar, you are His altar and temple, let's build a shelter for God by building homes for the homeless and the needy, that is the only time you are building a house for God. God does not live in Deeper Life camp, Redemption Camp, MFM prayer city, Canaan Land and co, #GodNoDeyLiveForChurch, if we really want God to live in those places, let's open it up for the homeless and those who cannot afford a plot in Haggai or Shiloh, that is when God will really move into camp. The only plot or altar he wants to live in is your heart.

Monday, April 27, 2015
Well today is Monday and I'm out to get it done but before I do, I want to do my father's business a little more.
For those that have been defending their pastors opinion on the issue of tithing over the redemptive sacrifice of Christ after reading my post, I want to clarify some things before asking some very interesting question.
Do you know that the purpose of tithe is not for God to bless you or for supporting God's work but rather, it's an exercise of the law for showing that you "REGARD AND FEAR THE LORD YOUR GOD"
In Deut 14:23, the Bible clearly says EAT your tithe before the Lord SO THAT YOU CAN FEAR HIM.
In Deut 14:26 it repeated it again saying if you can't carry the cassava and cocoyam, convert it to money and use it to eat rice, drink wine and 'ogogoro' and you can even use it to carry 'ashewo' if you soul lust after one, at that point, you are covered because it's tithing.
In Deut 14: 27 & 29 it clearly says when your belly is full, you should remember the Levites (not a pastor because they have no inheritance among you) also the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow because they are really the ones in need.
Here are my questions and I need clear answers.
1. The Lord clearly says "Eat before Me so that you can fear Me" why are you not eating your tithe? That's direct disobedience! Isn't that telling God directly that "I DON'T REGARD OR FEAR YOU?"
2. Your excuse is that you cannot carry yam abi, fine, there is room to convert it to money but according to Lev 27:31 "If you want to buy back the LORD's tenth of the grain or fruit, you must pay its value, plus 20 percent." so that's now 30%. The interesting thing is that you must still eat everything before the Lord SO THAT YOU CAN FEAR HIM. That's 30%, so if you are bringing money, you should be presenting 30% that you must blow once on whatever your soul desire, Ogogoro included.
The question is "Have you been eating that 30% at once as the Lord instructed in the Bible?" If you haven't been doing that, do you know you've be telling God "I DON'T REGARD OR FEAR YOU"?
3. There are four set of people entitled to the leftover of your tithe eating exercise, The Levites, Stranger, Widow and Fatherless. Your pastor is obviously not a levite, even Jesus is not one. So if your pastor is not a helpless stranger, widow/widower, or orpahn, why is he the only one screaming the songs of tithe in cash. Why is your pastor the one raining fake curses and suspended prayers on the topic of tithe when he's not even entitled to it by any or all definition?
4. Lastly I will like to know, if your pastor had told you that tithing is just for you to show that you FEAR THE LORD and that no blessing is attached to it, will you be paying it?
Believe me, tithing is not an avenue to blessings, it is illegal in the body of Christ and any pastor that comes to preach Jesus to you and still ask you for tithe is a con-artist from the pit of hell, there are no better words to describe such a person. The fact that tithing is popular does not make it right.
Anyways, I am expecting your answers but before you do, remember this.
If you want to give your money to God, do it right, give it to the stranger, fatherless and the widow, I can guarantee you that God will receive it and credit your earthly and heavenly account with interest. If you want to support God's work here on earth, please do by supporting His missionaries and outreaches, not by donating to a church building that means nothing to Jesus and no effect on the kingdom of God. Don't label it a tight, give without measures.
