SUCCESS AND SPIRITUAL INVOCATION
By Adenuga Sunday Joseph

Have you ever heard the story of men (and women) who got so frustrated in life as a result of poverty that they decided to use spiritual means to get wealth? I have heard the story of such men and women, they went to the spiritualist (called Babalawo in my native language), and the spiritualist promised them wealth and actually gave some real wealth. To every such wealth promised and delivered, there is always a strong attachment, a strong demand, and or commitment on the part of the seeker. To some they must pay with the life of their wives (or husbands); to some it is their first born child; to some their aged parents; to others it may be part of their body. Note that the part of the body so donated or sacrificed may continue to decay till the day of their death.

Getting wealth from the kingdom of the devil is never free; it is a big deal you must pay for it through your nose. The terrible aspect of it is this, they will not tell you what the condition will be; they would not know at the outset what their oracle would demand from the seeker. So you would not know what they will demand until you follow them to the point of no return, sometimes they give stupendous wealth with the condition that the seeker will not live beyond a certain number of years, commonly between one and nine years. The point of no return is the point you have entered into a strong covenant with them, to this you are bound, and so at that point, they name their price. As I pointed out earlier, the demand may be short life for you here on earth, or the life of your wife, or that of your aged mother, or your son or daughter, or even your potency if you are a man and your womb if you are a woman, meaning your inability to ever produce a biological child. In this case all your unborn children are said to be working for the money you are enjoying on this earth. Such person though rich will die barren. Please note this well in your heart; the devil can never give you wealth for free.

I heard the story of three men who went to an old spiritualist and told him they want wealth but not with the life of any of their loved ones or unborn children. This wealth that they want will not affect their sexual potency and ability to produce babies. The old spiritualist consulted his oracle that agreed that such wealth was possible, but the three of them would turn into birds first; as birds they would be made to fly to somewhere to bring some spiritual materials with which their wealth would be made. This was a good arrangement to them the two of them agreed to the deal, but the third declined. To cut the long story short, they both flew away as birds and flew back to the shrine at the appointed time, then the spiritualist tried to bring them back to their human form, he succeeded half way, so half of their bodies turned back to human the remaining half bird. He then remembered that there was something he forgot to bring to the shrine, he rushed back home to bring the remaining spiritual materials and on his way, he was knocked down by a fast moving vehicle and died instantly. Those wealth seekers remained half human, half birds: this is a true-life story. The detail given above may not be exact or complete, but the truth is that the spiritualist died and there was no one to bring back the two wealth seekers to complete human form and they died a most shameful death.

Another wealth seeker was told to sleep with a dirty old completely mad woman if he wants great wealth but this also backfired. He too was not only disgraced but also lost his life in the process.
Are you looking for money? The truth is that money is not evil, the Bible says, "The love of money is the root of all evil". Notice that it says the love of, not that it said money is. The truth is that money is neither good nor bad, money is a neuter. It is good when you use it for a good purpose, and of course, it is bad when you employ it to accomplish evil act.
Thomas Carlyle, the Scottish Essayist and historian, once declared that, "Adversity is hard on man: but for one man who can stand prosperity, there are a hundred men that will stand adversity." Many people want to be wealthy, but very few people can really handle wealth. Many will fumble when money comes, only few people can remain humble when real wealth enters their hands. You cannot know the true nature of a man until he is rich; a man is truly humble if with all his wealth, he is still meek and considerate of others. I know some brothers who seemed to be so humble and loving: when they got little money, they began to class themselves; others are no longer worthy of them, they are now superior to all others: meanwhile these are the people they use to play with before. This is pride; beware of this as you grow to become successful in life.

Breaking The Curses Of Life

How to break the curse upon your life
By Adenuga Sunday Joseph

Through the WORD of GOD (which is also the thoughts of God) and this is higher than any man’s. See Isaiah 55: 8,9. When you speak the word of God into your life, curses gives way to blessings. You must speak the word of God directly to every area of your life that you feel the curse is working. Reply every curse with a blessing from the word of God, when evil thoughts come, you reply it with a positive, good, success and God provoking thoughts. If this is the line you want to take; then you are in for success; and you will experience success unlimited that no man can hinder. There is a warning however, you must decide that from now on, you will never think evil of any one again in your life time. Make it a life decision that you will never from now sit down to discuss evil about anybody, knowing that we always reap whatever we sow.
Our thoughts – a world of possibilities.
Do you know that the thought realm operates exactly as the world of computer Internet? Most of us know what Internet is and how it works. Internet is the international network of computers, meaning that computers are linked together with each other throughout the world; they are tapping information from each other and sharing information. It is the same with human minds. If you look at someone even a stranger with thoughts of love, have you noticed how he will respond with acts of kindness? Do you know that if you passionately hate someone and you always speak evil of that person, his response to you will be negative?
Just like we can through the internet e-mail our friends and loved ones, chat with them, make internet phone calls, browse for any information from any part of the world, download valuable information, read/hear the latest news and reports, get the latest discovery in any field and so on: we can also through our thinking and prayers care for our friends, bless them and know their conditions wherever they may be in this world. With your thoughts, you can communicate love or hatred to people and sooner or later, they will know whether you love them or not. You cannot hide your hatred for people for too long, even when your mouth is not saying ‘I hate you’, so long your mind is saying it, and he will soon know that you hate him. Your helpers can pick up your thoughts for the need of help and come around to offer the necessary help at a time you never expected. With you mind, (through thinking) you can browse for any information about any area of interest and if you are sensitive enough, you can get whatever you want through reading, research and your active thinking (even as you search). This is the reason the Bible says, "As a man thinketh in his heart so is he." Use your mind to learn how to make life say yes to your plan of success instead of no. Even if life gave you a no, learn how to patiently change the no of life to a yes. I have said it so many times in my real life messages that the no of life is not the final, sometimes you get seven no’s before a yes can be yours. So keep on believing, keep on working, your own no may be more than ten, (yours may be only one), just keep on, your yes will come, no matter how many no’s you ever got. Somebody said, "whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, he can achieve" and I add, no matter the amount of no’s he got initially.
Discovering your Purpose
By Adenuga Sunday Joseph

We are all different, if you want to be a doctor because your friend is one, you may end your life as a failure. To discover the purpose of God for your life you must be able to answer (with the help of the Holy Spirit) the following questions:
Who am I?
Why am I here?
Where am I coming from and where am I going?
How will I get there
What will I do (or be doing) in order to get there?
You may need some days of prayer and separation from everything else to face these serious questions. Let me give you some important hints that will help you discover yourself.

Your desire: - The Holy Spirit uses our heart to desire those things He wants us to accomplish. This is different from the things that you like. When you like a thing, with the passing of time, you may forget it, but what you desire stays with you, it doesn’t come and go. You can test that thing you feel is your desire by considering some other things, if you find another thing you love more than your first desire, and then the first desire is not the real thing.

Peace: - When you have decided on what you think you want to do as a result of heart desire, you want to check if there is peace deep on the inside of you. When you have peace, the Holy Spirit is the giver of that peace. This peace is a sign of God’s consent; lack of peace is a red sign, stop and pray again.

The assignment from God has with it the people, the resources and the money to make you happy fulfilling that calling. When God gives you a vision to accomplish something, He also provides for the vision. Provision as someone define it, is the funds provided for the VISION. If you are not pursuing a VISION from God, He is not obligated to provide for you. His provision is for vision from the Holy Spirit and pursue it and then see the money rolling in, in millions.
Your daily activities: - You need the guidance of the Holy Spirit in your daily activities; you need Him to teach you to go about things even to the point of what to say at the right time.

When I started the work of the ministry as a full-time Pastor, I knew the ministry should be commissioned and I be ordained as the Pastor in charge. I prayed for God’s guidance, for many months, there seemed to be no response. Then I decided to use wisdom, find a man of God in my own special line of calling, make him my mentor and have him commission the ministry and also ordain me to the Gospel work. I soon discovered one Bishop, I started familiarizing myself with him and was making plans to go and propose to him that he should be the one to commission this ministry and also ordain me. One morning as I was praying, I heard a voice speak to my spirit the word, ‘S. A. ADEGBOYEGA’, I turned to see the person who spoke. It was early morning and my wife was still on bed, I went to her and told her what I heard as I prayed concerning the ordination, did she know anybody by that name, she, like me, could not remember anybody bearing that name. When I got to the office later in the morning, I asked one of my sons in the ministry who had come to visit me if he knows anybody by that name. He told it is Daddy SPAC, the General Overseer of Salvation Proclaimers Anointed Church (SPAC), there and then, I knew that, the G.O. of SPAC would ordain me. Thank God for that encounter with the Holy Spirit, thank God I obeyed, things had not been the same since I met this great man of God. He is my prophet, my father and my mentor. I love him. God has blessed me so much through his laying on of hands upon me and through his prophetic declaration on me. I pray that the Lord will continue to use him for His glory; he will live long in the service of the Lord in Jesus name. Why have I shared this aspect of my life in this book? I share this in other to teach you how to seek the leading of the Holy Spirit in your life. If that Bishop had ordained me, I know, it wouldn’t be as glorious because that’s not the perfect will of God. When you flow in the perfect will of God, it becomes easier to succeed, sweat is reduced, effort is minimal and success is certain. Please, be led, allow the Spirit to have His way.

Read what Jesus said about the Holy Spirit in John 14:26
But the comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said to you.
The Holy Spirit is a gentle man, He doesn’t force His way through, and He only gives to you ideas that can help you to live a better life. When you allow Him to teach you and remind you of the word of God, when you make Him your senior partner, then you will become invincible. You become an unbeatable team (i.e. Himself and you).

One of the reasons why believers die in ghastly motor accident is because many are not sensitive enough to listen to the Holy Spirit. Many were warned by the Holy Spirit in them that they should not travel at that time, they had that ‘check’, that ‘note’ of warning, but they refused to yield. When you refuse to yield to the idea of the Holy Spirit, the end may be accident, death, loss of large sums of money etc.

After my University education and the one-year of Youth Service to my nation, I decided that I would venture into private business rather than working with any organization. With the help of God, I was able to put up a Garri processing plant. I started producing garri, I had all the machines needed for the production of garri in my factory and I was doing well. One day, a man who was my late daddy’s friend came and saw what I was doing; he was both surprised and happy. He promised to help me so that the business will get better. He suddenly came one day, about two weeks later to inform me that the best way to make more money from this business was to transfer the plant to one village near Akanran via Ibadan. I asked him, how can I get more money from a village than from a town? With sweet words and good promises, (e.g. good accommodation, ready made market, constant supply of raw materials – cassava), I decided to transfer the plant to the village contrary to the warning from the Holy Spirit inside me. The Holy Spirit was gently warning me, but I was enticed by the prospects, I had no peace yet I continued because I wanted to be rich in no time. When we got to the village, we didn’t spend up to two months when everything crumbled. The cassava-grating machine got damaged during a whirlwind; all sorts of terrible things began to happen. At the end of the second month, I was back to square one, no money, and no job and started begging to apply for job.

THE LEADING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, don’t play with it, don’t just dare to do anything contrary or else, you will suffer long for it. The most painful aspect of it all was when I heard that man who had taken me to the village tell others that I had not applied wisdom by deciding to come to the village. He did not know that I heard him, my brother Gbenga and I, had to quietly pack our things and leave the village.

Dear reader, don’t dare move until you have the clearance of the Holy Spirit, if you move contrary to what is deep down in your heart, you may end up failing or even dying – be careful. We blame God, we say that God is partial, yet God has put a ‘check’ in our hearts, we ignore the ‘check’, we resist His leading and guidance and yet we want to prosper.
Those who follow the deep-rooted conviction of their hearts are the ones who prosper, because they are the ones who know how to follow the leading of the Holy Spirit. As long as you follow Him, you cannot fail, you cannot have accident, you cannot die young.

Discovering Who You Are

By Adenuga Sunday Joseph

You are a spirit.

You were created in the image of God. The Bible says in John 4:24, that,
‘God is a spirit: and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth.’
If you and I are made in the image and likeness of God, and God is a Spirit, then it follows that we are spirit beings. Even as the Bible says in Job 32: 8
But there is a spirit in man: and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding.

What the scripture is saying in that place is that, there is a spirit in man’s body. Your body is not the real you, the real you is the spirit inside that body; you have a soul, you only live in that body. One day, your body will dissolve and wear out, and people will say you are dead. See what is written in Job 33: 4

The Spirit of God hath made me, and the breath of the Almighty hath given me life.
The breath of the Almighty that gave me life is the Spirit of God, He gave me life, and that is, He gave me a spirit because my spirit is my life. One thing you should know right now is that spirits do not die, meaning that spirits do not cease to exist or get out of existence. Spirits live forever. You are a spirit, you have a soul and the body is only a temporary house that carries you about in this physical plane. Without the body, you will still live, but not in this physical world, you will live in another realm of life. Death (that is the physically shedding this body away) is not the end of man: death is only a transition, it changing from active participation on earth to being an active participant in another realm, or another world. This other world may be the one controlled by The Almighty God called the kingdom of light or the one controlled by the devil called the kingdom of darkness. The choice is absolutely your. You chose and decide your next destination after your departure from earth. The decision is made right here on earth before departure. The choice is yours.
That is why the Bible says,
"It is appointed unto man to die ones and after death, judgment." Hebrews 9:27
If physical death is the end of man, why and how will he be judged after death? This implies that after death, which is only a separation from this physical world, there is judgment somewhere beyond this earth. You and I will face it, not in this body, this body would have decayed, but we will face the judgment. What is your own preparation towards this judgment?
You are a spirit, 1Tessallonians 5:23 tells us,
And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
God is a spirit, you are a spirit, you cannot interact with God with your body; your body cannot touch God only your spirit can.

The earlier you understood who you really are, the easier it becomes for you to climb through the ladder of success. Let me emphasize that you are not that body you see each time you look through the mirror. You are not the mind that thinks, you are more than that because you can control it. Yes, you can control what you do with your mind; what you eat, what you wear and what you do with you body. If you cannot control your body, then it means that your body is the dominant part of you, and you cannot attain to a lasting success. The bible says, ‘in my body dwells nothing good’ see Romans 7:17 and Romans 7: 24. To have a good success you must have power over your body and your mind; you must be able to put a final stop to every urge that comes from you emotion (in your soul) to your body and tell it to stop and it will stop. For example, you have power to stop the urge that prompts you to commit adultery with another man’s wife. You can tell your body, "listen sin doesn’t live here anymore," and it will hear and obey you. That body is not you, that emotion of lust to sleep around with people of the opposite sex is not the real you. The real you, if you are born again, doesn’t sin. Why don’t you allow the real you to have an upper hand over your body and soul, this is what signal real success. Please always remember this that your body is not you, though you live inside that body, you need that body to operate in this physical realm. The body must not be allowed to dictate to you; it must not be permitted to dominate you in anyway. Success starts from self-mastery, if you cannot master your body and your mind, then you cannot master life and get success out of it. Please understand this point very well; this is very crucial to your having a good success on the earth. No lasting success can be achieved until you’ve mastered the body and dominated the mind completely.
Yes you have to dominate you mind by the word of God, and that is why Lord Jesus Christ said in Matthew 4:4 that,
"Man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that proceed out of the mouth of God."
This means there is something more than bread, something more than your body or its needs, because bread caters for the body. The most important things are the WORDS that proceed from God’s mouth, and they are all written in the Bible. These are the things that cater for your spirit. Please get it in; understand it; it is very important.

The Power Of Your Thought

The Power of Your Thoughts: -
By Adenuga Sunday Joseph


What you think can either make you or mar you. Infact, thoughts are "things", they are "forces". You know that forces have the ability to do work; they have the ability to compel things to happen. Thoughts are spiritual because when they become imaginations and are positively directed, they are potent. Thoughts link us directly with spirit realm; we touch the spirit world only through our thought life. See Proverbs 4:23
Keep thy heart will all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.
One translation put it the way I like; it says,"…out of it are forces of life".

When you need the force of life to bring any change to any situation; that force of change must commence from your heart. When Jesus said, "from the time of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of God suffereth violence, the violence taketh it by force" Matt.11: 12. He was not talking about the force of arms, or the force of physical strength but He was referring to the forces of your mind. That is why Romans 12:2 says
"And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect, will of God.
You need to renew your mind, why? So that it may be able to give you a new strength: and that greater forces maybe produced from your thoughts. When the forces of your concentrated thoughts (on success) combines with your positive confession, then you can be sure of an inescapable success.

Your thoughts can make life say yes instead of no, it affects your attitude, which is the dominant factor of charisma. The better your thoughts, the more charismatic you become. Though you may not be physically attractive as some others, yet everybody will always want you. You attract success even as you also attract people.
Many people have died as a result of thinking themselves to death. Some have literally thought themselves into failure. The bible says, "As a man thinketh in his heart so is he". If you think you will die, then you will die soon; if you want to succeed but think you cannot, then you will not. If you love good health and you are always thinking sickness, seeing yourself on sick bed, you will soon fall into sickness.

What do you when evil thoughts come? Renew your mind with the word of God; you must intentionally stop the negative thinking. Change it to a positive thinking. See yourself healthy, see yourself in abundance, see yourself as a success, believe what you see about yourself (in your thoughts), and then say it out loud. You shall make it.

IT IS FINISHED
By Adenuga Sunday Joseph

Jesus spoke the words "it is finished" on the cross when He was about to die for our sins. He had finished the work of redemption (i.e. salvation, deliverance, healing, prosperity, safety etc.): He completed it successfully. He had done all that is required, He had finished the work, and He had successfully completed the task of making us the sons of God. All there is for any man to be saved or delivered or prosperous is up to him/her. God’s part had been completed; God’s righteous requirement for sins’ penalty had been paid. What more? Nothing, but to only believe and receive the grace.
For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,
Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lust, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;
Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ;
Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquities, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works
All you need to do is to receive the grace of God. The grace is made available to all men; you only need to receive it. It is finished, I mean, you have no work to do, only discover what He has done and made available to you. Your success is finished; your victory is certain. Jesus has gotten the victory; Jesus has gotten the success.
He said, ‘all power in heaven and on earth is given unto me, go ye therefore … I am with you always’. When you have all power in heaven and on earth, it means you have all success, all victory, health, prosperity, dominion, strength, grace and wisdom.
Many are struggling; no, you don’t need to. Just find out the victory that Christ has made available and capitalize on it. Please note, I am not saying that you will not work hard and fight (for there is no short cut to a life of success), but when you fight, you fight in God’s strength. Jesus said, ‘it is finished’. In considering this statement, I want you to know something about the Almighty God; He said in Isaiah 46:8 – 10, that He is the Lord that declares the end from the beginning. This means that God knows the end from the beginning: it means God finishes before He starts; He completes before He commences; He ends a thing before He starts it. In Revelation, Jesus said, ‘I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the ending’. God is saying to you as you read this book; if you allow Him (the Almighty) to begin a work of grace in your life; then you can be very sure that He has completed that work. I know it because God can never start a work and leave it half done. God can never begin a work without ending it. If He starts, it means He has finished it before He started it. Please understand this, if your life is in His hands, and He has really started that thing you are doing (I mean, He initiated that project, business, ministry or job), then I can happily report to you that, that ‘thing’ have a very good ending. Yes, if what you are doing originated from God, then I want to congratulate you because if you follow through, it is impossible for you to fail. You cannot fail; I know it. Since God is the starter, He has finished it before He started you. That is why Hebrew 12:2 says Jesus is the author and finisher of our faith. He is the beginner and the finisher of my work, my faith. He is the Author and the perfecter of my life Hallelujah. He doesn’t commence a thing without having finished it. He can never fail because he already finished it to a successful ending before He stated it. Any time God starts you out on any project, you can be 100% sure that you are already a success irrespective of the present situation. Please see this, believe it, know it and be encouraged.
Dear friend, I urge you to be rest assured in your spirit: that He has done it for you: He has finished it. All you need to do is accept it. IT IS UP TO YOU TO ACCEPT IT.
Congrats because I trust God that you have accepted it.

Becoming An Entrepreneur

Do you have what it takes to be an e-entrepreneur?
Copyright © Stone Evans, The Home Biz Guy
Author of "Dotcomology - The Science of Making Money Online"

These days, it seems like everyone wants to work
from home and make money on the Internet. But
before you even turn on your computer, the first
question you have to ask yourself is whether
you’re cut out for this kind of work.

The fact is, building a home-based business isn’t
for everyone. Some people like the commute. They
really do enjoy having a boss who tells them what
to do, and they like the routine of working
nine-to-five for an ordinary salary that can
barely pay the mortgage. Personally, I think
they’re nuts.

More reasonably, there are people who are
concerned about the risk of starting up their own
business. They’re not sure it’s worth the
investment of time and money, and they’re scared
of the responsibility that comes with running
their own company. They wonder if there is
another way to escape the rat race.

I’m sure there is. You could win the lottery or
wait for your Aunt Sue to keel over and leave you
her condo. Or maybe you could sit down with a pen
and paper and draw the blueprint for "The Next
Big Thing". Anything can happen... Right?

For me, what happened was creating a successful,
self-running Internet marketing system. It didn’t
happen without effort. It didn’t happen without
at least some initial investment of both time and
money and, of course, it doesn’t happen now
without me making sure that the taxes are filed
and the paperwork is done. But it happened.

I’m my own boss. I work from home according to my
own schedule and I get to pocket all the cash my
business makes. If you’re prepared to give an
e-business the time, the work and the money it
needs to get started and get growing, it can
happen for you too.

God Want You To Be His Friend

I believe that God had three purposes in mind when He created man, they are
That man should worship Him here on earth (just as the Angelic beings are doing in Heaven). Today many people do not worship God. The first reason God made you is to worship Him. When you wake up in the morning, the first thing is not to complain but to worship God, songs of worship must flow out of you worshiping and adoring the Almighty God take you very quickly into the realm of the supernatural. (I shall discuss more on this later).
That man should have close fellowship, friendly relationship with Him. It is one thing to worship Him; it is another thing to have a friendly relationship with Him. He longs to be your friend, if you want to reign in life, you must be His friend, He must guide and advise you daily, you must tell him all what you’re going through, you must follow Him closely. You must be feel free to express yourself to Him.
That man should have dominion over all His created beings and things. Today, instead of having dominion, man is dominated by beings and things. Look at your life, do you have dominion or you are dominated. To have dominion means to be prosperous, to be successful, to possess your possession, to reign in life, to be in control of things, to subdue, and to influence.
As you begin to flow in the supernatural, you shall begin to have dominion in life and your domain will continue to increase as you allow the Holy Spirit to take you to the heights. If you study Adam’s life before the fall, he worships God constantly. We read of God coming to Adam in the cool of the day to have fellowship with Adam. When God visited Adam, he would prostrate and worship the Lord and they would talk together as friends, there was deep communion; there was fellowship between Adam and God. As a result of this relationship, Adam had dominion over the earth, he was given the privilege of naming all the animals, and he was fully in control of the earth until the fall. He lost the dominion after the fall because; he had lost the relationship with God. No one can have dominion without first having relationship with Jesus. If you are not connected with Jesus, you cannot be connected with success or dominion: if you do not discover the lost dominion, you will end up as a major failure in life. This is true, even though God has given us all things that pertain to life and godliness, yet you will not enjoy the life.
The purpose of God was for man to be His friend; that’s why He made man in His own image. He intended for man to love Him (without being forced or coerced to love Him) and be ready to reverence Him always. You cannot operate in the realm of supernatural if you are not ready to establish a rapport with God. Many people do what they like, go anywhere they please, but for you, from now, you must be ready to please God before you please yourself. Jesus is waiting daily for as many as are ready to enter into a son ship (or friendly) relationship with Him. Do you need a friend? God is calling on you. He wants to have intimate relationship with you. We’re not here talking about being born-again only but about going higher in the realm of the supernatural.
Have you ever had a friend, a true fried, somebody you love? When you are with him, you feel relaxed, you do not feel shy or ashamed to tell him anything, he is your fried because when nobody understands you, he does, and he cares. A time with him is highly treasured and can never be seen as wasted.
Do you know? You can become a friend of God. He is your Lord, and your creator and your heavenly father (if you are born-again), yet he longs to have a friendly relationship with you. He wants to be your friend; above all, he wants you to be closer to him. He wants you to make Him the closest being to you.

Success Not Beyond Your Reach
By Adenuga Sunday Joseph


Victory is available for every child of God but it’s not free. In life, you can’t get something for nothing. From my own perspective, the first secret in the school of success is "there is no such reality as something for nothing" – Napoleon Hill. Many people fail because they want success, they want victory, they want wealth and yet they are not prepared to give it what it takes. It takes something to be rich, when I say it takes, I mean life demand something from you in order for it to release success to you. If you study life, you’ll find out that life is both stingy and generous. Stingy to those who are not ready and willing to give it what it demands for it to release abundance to them. The demand of life seem to some too hard, they are not prepared to go the whole hog. Those who are ready to give life what it takes to succeed, those who know that success is not free, it demands a lot, they give life their all, in order to receive abundance from life. To them life is generous: because they know the secret of "give and it shall be given unto you".
To get in life, you must be prepared to give. To be something/somebody in life, you must do certain things, if you cannot do what is demanded of what you desire to be, you can never be it. There is a prize to be paid by anybody who desires to be great in life.
Education is good, but it has little or nothing to do with wealth acquisition. Even if you are not well educated, you can still make it in life. Many millionaires of our time are not graduates of universities. Riches are not beyond your reach; you can be as rich as you ever wanted to be. Nothing can stop you from being rich, only you can stop yourself.
I want you to know that you too can make it as much as anybody you’ve ever known, if not better. You have what it takes, give it and you shall receive. Read Proverb 10:4
He becometh poor that dealeth with slack hand: but the hand of the diligent maketh rich.
From the scriptures above, you will understand (if you think well) that no one was born poor or rich. People become poor or make riches on earth. No one was born rich or poor, you make riches or become poor. See this, and understand it well.
To become means to turn to something that was not originally.
Example, the book you’re reading is made of paper, which was originally a tree in the forest. The tree was chopped, processed and it becomes paper. When the Bible says, "he becometh poor", God means to let you know that people were not destined to be poor, but they become poor as a result of going through a process; the process is called laziness. "The hand of the diligent maketh rich", if you are hardworking, no matter who you are, no matter where you live, you shall make or become rich. Do you know that being born to a rich family doesn’t make you automatically rich at the end of life? The richest men that ever lived mostly come from poor families.
Laziness is the most powerful ingredient in the soup of failure. Stop and think what do you want to become? Rich? Or Poor? I don’t care how old you may be now, if you will change your attitude (of laziness) you can still become successful, you can still fulfill your destiny, you can still make it in life.
The bible says that God worked hard for six days, he had to set the seventh day apart to rest. Our lord Jesus said, my father worketh hitherto and I work. If God is working, who are you? Jesus worked hard (see John 4:34, John 5:17).
Do you know what made Apostle Paul thick? He worked harder than all the other Apostles put together, he wrote about two-third of the New Testament. Hard work was the secret behind the success of Paul.
With hard work, if you start now, before long you will begin to observe yourself going from a nobody to a powerful influence around the world. Paul said it in II Corinthians.11: 23 and I Corinthians. 15:10 that he labored more abundantly than all other Apostles. One of the greatest men I love and respect as a mentor said, he hardly sleeps for more than four hours a day. Talk about success, it doesn’t come anyhow it comes by pressing (through hard work)
I went by the field of the slothful, and by the vineyard of the man void of understanding:
And lo, it was all grown over with thorns, and nettles had covered the face thereof, and the stonewall thereof was broken down.
Then I saw, and considered it well: I looked upon it, and received instruction.
Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep:
So shall thy poverty come as one that travaileth, and thy want as an armed man?
Study the above scriptures and you will appreciate at one’s that failure comes by sleeping too much and by laziness. Please, wake up. Success is in you, draw it out by laboring fervently – understand? Put your hand to work, put your mind to work then God will be at work to make you a success.
The Higher You Go the Cooler it becomes
There are very few people at the top, so it’s cool up there, but the bottom is overcrowded and congested. Many people are not ready to do what it takes to get to the top. Let me try to analyze to you what I mean. In Nigeria, we have about one hundred million people, from the political point of view, only about less than ten thousand of these were elected as Local Government Councilors: we have less than eight hundred people elected as Local Government Chairmen: less than five hundred people as members of the house of representatives, we have only about one hundred and three Senators, thirty-six Governors and only one President. Politically speaking, you can see the trend, the higher the position, the fewer the number of people that were elected. This is the situation in the real life, winners in life’s battles are always fewer in number than looser. Why is it so? I’ve explained the reason in so many ways in this article. Many are trusting to luck or hope that something unexpected will turn up to solve their problems or save the situation – that will never happen.

A Love Response
By Deborah Owen

My wife and I visited someone who was being drawn to Christ. Almost as soon as we arrived, even though we hadn't mentioned the subject, they said they would not get their hair cut or stop smoking. We said that was entirely their choice, because being a Christian was not about keeping rules, but was a love relationship.The junior school I attended had strict rules and we were expected to obey them under the threat of punishment. During an art lesson, where we had to draw and paint a glass jug, I accidentally knocked my little pot of water over. The teacher hauled me out in front of the class and gave me six of the best with his cane. It not only put me off art, but was one of several instances that gave me a jaundiced view of authority figures. It was only many years later, during an evening class, that an encouraging tutor showed me that I really could do art. My work flourished under his caring and competent tuition and I eventually had paintings hung in exhibitions.If we are a Christian and say that we love Jesus, then this will show in our actions and attitudes. This is something I find very challenging. Do I really demonstrate that I trust God and put Him first in my life? Do I carry out all my dealings with people with honesty and integrity? Do I really put the interests of my wife and family and neighbours at least the same as I do for myself and do I love them as much as I love myself? For that matter, do I love myself? If I don't then it's because I need to know more in my experience just how much He loves me. God does not force me to obey, ready to cane me if I do wrong. No, out of love he gives me the freedom to choose. He has poured Himself out for me and is always there for me. He is my Father, my Daddy who stands with open arms, longing for me to keep coming to Him as a response to His love. His love breaks me up. The more I realise His love the more I will want to walk with Him in His ways in complete surrender. And the more I abide and obey, the more I flourish and enjoy, along with others, the benefits of His care.It's a love responseIt starts by coming to HimIt continues by coming to Himand it last forever by being with Him."Jesus replied, "If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching. My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him." John 14:23 New International Version

The Wise Builder
By Mrs. Olabisi Adenuga

Every woman is a builder one-way or the other. The earlier you knew this the better for you and your family. Many of us believe that our husbands are the only builders in the home, and that we are only there to help them. Well in a way that is true, but in reality we are partners and co builders with our husbands. Our input is as important as that of our husbands. In most cases, our deep understanding of life and wisdom in handling cases goes a long way to help our husbands to be more successful. We can ask ourselves, "Which house am I building?" Or another question may come up from the inner man "Am I a wise builder or a foolish one?" Let’s try to define the term, Builder: A builder is someone who carefully follows a plan set down for a new building. She supervises the constructions of the building from start to finish.
The best plan to follow is God’s. The Bible contains God’s perfect plan for you marriage or home. If you follow God’s plan according to the Bible which happens to be our manufacturer’ manual, you will build a lasting and strong home. The house cannot be built without a solid foundation, the bigger and stronger the proposed house the deeper the foundation must be. You have to be a wise master builder, let’s consider Pro. 31:10-13
Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies. The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.
She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.
A virtuous woman is a person that purpose in her heart to be relevant in the hand of God. With this determination in your heart you are set for victory in the building of your home. If you want to build a skyscraper, your foundation will demand more time and materials than the woman who plans to build a bungalow. We are the salt of the earth; we are also the light of the world. We should try and sweeting our homes and all around us. You are a virtuous woman not by the way you dress, or how popular you are, or the amount of money in your bank account. Your inner man reveals the kind of woman you are, and this will show in your outward appearance. The heart you have for Christ will determine the way you handle situations that confronts you all the time. Jesus Christ must be the solid foundation upon which to build your life and home.
"Therefore whosoever heareth this saying of mine and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise woman, which built her home upon a rock. And the rain descended and the floods came and the winds blew and beat upon that home, and it fell not, for it was founded upon a rock". Mathew 7:24-25
What can help you as a woman who is a wise builder of that home where God placed you as a mother? They are the following points I am about to make: -
Accept Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior. That is having a personal encounter with the Lord.
Receive the Holy Spirit of God into your life, let Him be your Guide, endeavor to have a close relationship with Him, let Him (The Spirit of God) be your closest friend, counselor and advocate
Walk in love. This is the greatest commandment in the word of God, love your husband, his work, his hobbies, e t c
Fear God with all your heart and
Learn to be truthful and honest all your life.
Building your home as a wise master builder is the only way to ensure the future of all your children.
"And everyone that heareth this saying of mine and doeth them not shall be liken to a foolish woman, which build her home upon the sand. And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the wind blew, and beat upon that home and it fell, and great was the fall of it".
Matthew7: 26-27.
The Bible says in Ecclessiastes8: 1 ‘who is the wise woman? And who knoweth the interpretation of a thing? A woman’s wisdom makes her face to shine, and the boldness of her face shall be changed’.
An excellent woman is a woman of interpretation. She has the power of imagination to everything happening around her. She safeguard some situations and problems ever before they happen, this she does through prayers and in seeking God’s guidance. We can then say that a woman is a watcher that always stands in the watchtower over her home. Watch with love over your home. I love you.

Quotes

Be confident, be sure of yourself, assert yourself, affirm your desire and people and things will give way to you.
By Adenuga S Joseph

Poverty needs no plan. It needs no one to aid it, because it is bold and ruthless. Riches are shy and timid. They have to be attracted.
Napoleon Hill

The world have the habit of making room for the man whose words and actions show that he knows where he is going.
Napoleon Hill

When I see human beings created in the likeness and image of God, crowned with glory and honor and given power to have dominion, and yet they are satisfied with unrewarding jobs, mediocre marriages, or half-hearted prayer lives, it keeps me awake at night.
Casey Treat

Be less concerned about what the devil is doing against you, but be more concerned with what God is doing for you. Too much concern about what the devil is doing against you is a trap of distraction. Watch out.
Rev. Gbenga A. Popson

You must have definite goals in your daily living. Every morning write down the goal you want to accomplish for that particular day. Write a yearly goal. Let your life become totally concentrated and focused on these goals.
Dr. David Yonggi Cho


If you leave people as you found them, God is not speaking by you. If you are not making people mad or glad, there is something amiss with your ministry. If there is not a war on, it’s a bad job for you.
Smith Wigglesworth

The ministry of healing, miracles, God’s power, is not a carnal ministry. It is an extension of the Christ ministry to be sought after and emulated!
Morris Cerullo


Our salvation lies in looking away to the Lord Jesus and in seeing that the blood of the Lamb has met the whole situation created by our sins and has answered it. That is the sure foundation on which we stand. Never should we try to answer Satan with our good conduct but always with the blood.
Watchman Nee

One thing that distinguishes ‘great men’ from ‘failures’ is how they invest this gift called ‘time’. All those who invest time wisely succeed in life. All those who invest time foolishly fail.

You are called to be a Success
By Adenuga Sunday Joseph

You were called to inherit a blessing if you are born again. See 1Peter 3:9. You have been blessed with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places. Every blessing that you need, to make life comfortable unto you has already been given to you; it is in you. It’s your responsibility to draw it out and use it for your own benefit.
Whatever you want to do or become in life is possible; you have what it takes to make it in you; it’s in you, use it. If you fail, the problem is not God’s but yours. Success is in you, believe it and use it. Power is in you, believe it, and use it. If you use it God will support you, if you fail to use it, He has nothing to hold on to in supporting you. Hence you are on your own in the realm of failure.

Value yourself

Getting you to be born-again cost God so much, making you valuable did not come without a price. Jesus paid the price. You need to value ‘you’. Value yourself because God values you. If you do not value yourself you will tend to do the following

1. You will be negligent in praising and worshiping God. The more you praise Him in worship, the more your value increase in heaven, the more you are known. The devil told the seven sons of Sceva "Jesus I know, Paul I know, but who are you" Acts 19:15. These boys, even though their father was one of the chief priests, they were unknown, unrecognized in the spiritual realm. God was not partial; it was just that they had not accepted the gift of life, JESUS CHRIST. Worship enhances your value; you were created for this purpose, to worship the almighty God. If you study the book of Revelation, you will discover that the only job that is done in heaven is worship. It is done twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. To neglect to worship God is to undervalue ‘you’.
To increase your value; you have to highly esteem the habit of Biblical worship. Do you know that tongues will cease, prophecy will become of no value, and faith will become unnecessary? Worship is the only thing we will give to our God when we get to heaven. Study the Psalms and you will understand the major reason God place high value on David. David became a man after God’s heart because of purposeful worship. Psalm 148:1-14 records
'Praise ye the Lord. Praise ye the Lord from the heavens; praise Him in the heights …
Kings of the earth, and all people, princess and all judges of the earth;
Both young men and maidens; old men, and children
Let them praise the name of the lord; for His name alone is excellence; His glory is above the earth and heaven.
He also exalteth the horn of his people, the praise of all His saints';
Worship or praise does something when it comes from the heart of men. It exalts the people of God, to exalt means to increase your value in Psalm 149:6, we read
'Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two edged sword in their hand'.
If the high praises of God is not there, then the sword may not work. The high praises of God in your mouth, right from a grateful heart will make the two-edge sword,
'To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people;
To bind their kings with chains
…'
The power to bind and loose is in the word of God (the two edge sword) but it is enhanced by quality praise. Study the Psalm 149:1-9

2. You will not believe all that is written in the word of God concerning you. If you refuse to believe what the word says you are, then you will not be what He says you are. Please note that if you do not become what the word says you are, it means that your value is greatly reduced to your own disadvantage. You are not what men says that you are, you are not what your enemies says that you are; you are what GOD says you are. Let’s see some of the things the word of God says you are,
see I John 4:4
Ye are of God, little children and have overcome them; because greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world.
You are of God. Believe it, accept it, practice it and be sure it is true as far as you are concerned. You have overcome them. Who are the ‘them’? ‘Them’ includes all the by-products of the devil, sin, sickness, diseases, death, wickedness, evil-spirits, oppressions, depressions, lack, poverty etc. You have overcome fear and timidity, believe it, and let it done on you. God is not partial; that things are not happening in your life is not God’s fault but yours. The good news is this, no matter how long you been suffering defeat in life, you can begin to win even now. You can win in life, God loves you and He is not partial: you rise up and take the challenge.
If you have not given your life to Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you cannot enjoy any of the promises of God. The only ticket that qualifies you to enter into this realm is to be born again. Why don’t you repent of your sins and surrender your life to Him now. If you are ready for this decision, bow your head now and pray this prayer: -
Heavenly Father, thank you for loving me so much that you sent your only begotten son to die for my sin. I realize that I am a sinner doomed for death, and eternal damnation. I hereby accept your offer of life through our Lord Jesus Christ; I open the doors of my heart to you Lord Jesus. I know that you died for me even though you never sinned so that I can be free from the penalty of sin. Thank you for loving me and making me a brand new man.
NOW THAT YOU ARE SAvED
I heartily congratulate you. Please write me so that I can send you the materials that will help you to grow in the Lord. Your testimony will encourage others; write your testimony for publication in the next edition. I invite you to attend any of our programs as stated in this magazine.
Congratulation one’s again

You are loaded with possibilities

You are loaded with possibilities
By Adenuga Sunday Joseph

If you are in a covenant relationship with God as a son, then you are a creature of great worth. You are priceless and a treasure of inestimable value. Stop looking down on yourself; stop thinking small, you are valuable. Talking about your value, we shall look into the Bible to see it from God’s perspective. This is talking about you as well as me: God loves us equally. Any time you read the Bible He is talking about you, believe it, God is not partial.
In the first place, God sees your value, even as a falling man, He sent His son, Jesus Christ to come and die for your sin. From John 3:16 we read
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

God loves you:-

All over the Bible, one clear message is, God’s love for man (you), His love is directed to man because of his value (or worth). You are worth so much to God, why? You are worth so much because you are unique; you are created in God’s image. When you study God’s creatures, you will see from the Bible that man is rated highest. Man was made (or created) in the image of God. God spoke all the things created in the universe into existence. In Genesis chapter one, you will read again and again "… and God said, ‘let there be …’ and there was …" the stars (galaxies) were actually spoken to existence by God on the fourth day of creation, the sun and all stars, in all the about one hundred billion galaxies were created by God’s word on the fourth day. See Gen. 1:14-19
On the sixth day, God created the man – Adam (our origin). In creating man, let’s see what God did. God said, "let us make man …" Meaning, God used His word. Then God formed man using His hand (as a great porter) to mould man, meaning, God used His hand and the sand of the earth. Then God breathe into man, the breath of life, meaning, God used His breathe/spirit (see Job 33: 4). Note the materials God used in creating man: -
His word: His hand and sand: and His breath (or spirit).
You want to compare these valuable materials with the one He used to create all other creatures. In creating all other creatures, living things and non-living things, He only used one material – His word.

You are wonderful:

Judging your value, from David’s perspective in Psalm 139:14-18.
I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.
My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest part of the earth
Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being imperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.
How precious are thy thoughts unto me, o God! How great is the sum of them!
If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee.
Know this and keep it in your heart that God loves you and values you and rates you high. His thoughts of you are precious; you can’t sum up all His good thoughts towards you. God said in Jeremiah 29:11,12
For I know the thoughts that I think towards you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you an expected end

God hears you:

Then shall ye call upon me and shall go and pray unto me, and I will harken unto you.
When someone or something is not valuable, you don’t think about him/it. You are so precious, He said, ‘ye shall call on me and I will hear you’. Many do not understand the privilege and opportunity to call on God and have him to say yes all the time. If you (let’s assume now that you are an ordinary citizen of your country), you want to have an audience with the president of your country. Let met ask you, how easy will it be for you to easily secure his attention? In a country like Nigeria, it’s almost an impossible task; they want to be very sure you’re not a security risk.
But now we are talking about the president of the universe, the one who oversees uncountable stars; the one who can dethrone and enthrone any president of the world; the Almighty God. He said, "and you shall call upon me and I will harken", and God is not partial. ‘You’ here refers to anybody and everybody who calls, in God’s acceptable way. If you understand this, you will really appreciate it. For me, as a Pastor, a busy one at that, I cannot see everyone that may want to see me at the very time he/she needs me because of tight and busy schedule. It is not so with God. You are so valuable; you can get His attention at anytime and in any place you find yourself. You get to Him, life and direct. Prayer is God’s hot line, one’s you put the call across; you will be through to God on a direct line of one on one. This information should do something in you, put confidence in you; make you happy and sure, that you are secured, anytime, anywhere. The good news about it is that God is not partial about it. Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. (Romans 10:13) Note, it is WHOSOEvER, and that includes you. Always remember, GOD IS NOT PARTIAL. What He has done to one He can do to another. He loves us equally, but I can endear myself to His heart that commits Him to love me more than you. You can always do something that will make you to get His affection easily. It depends on you more than you can imagine; I mean what you get from God depends on you to a large extent. Please understand this. God loved Solomon (2Samuel 12: 24,25), so does He love you John3: 16, but the Bible says Solomon loved the Lord that he (Solomon) gave God a thousand burnt offering see 1Kings3: 3. Solomon endeared himself to God’s heart by a cheerful and generous giving. God had to respond to that love by blessing him above every man since no man has given in such a generous way before.
Path to success
By Adenuga S Joseph

In this article, I believe God to open the eyes of your understanding, so that you will be able to discern who you really are. We gather from experience and the word of God that success in life starts from your heart. The Bible was quoting God’s thought when He said, “Beloved I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health even as thy soul prospereth”.
The high point of the above statement is this, ‘even as thy soul prospereth’. This means that your prosperity in life (financially and in all aspect of life) is directly proportional to the prosperity of your soul. This means that, the more you develop your soul or heart the more prosperity you will enjoy on earth.

In this article, I focused on the fact that God is good to all. If you take your time to study this and believe that of a truth God is good to all; and that doing well in life depends more on you than you ever thought. (This is true, because God has done everything man will ever need to succeed in life). Then you will see yourself rise to stardom in no time at all, because this revelation will help you to put in, your all to life. The result will be surprising, even to you.

In my future posts, I shall begin to highlight the business opportunity that can rake in money for you with ease. I featured in this write up the prospect of raking in money through Internet home business, see www.successdimension.com. I encourage every reader of this blog to start a business of his or her own. The article on running a successful business is a very educative one you need to really ‘eat it up’, watch out for it.

You need to read and re-read some of the articles in this blog, both the new posts and the old ones. After reading, try and pass this article on to a friend to also enjoy it too. We also want you to be a part of this website by sharing your testimony on how your encounter with this site has helped to solve a problem in your life. You are also welcome to write us if you have any problem or questions concerning your life, business, or even ministry. We are hoping to create a segment for answering such questions in the times ahead.

Please feel very free to share with the public those questions that you know will help us to help people. Most of the profound statements Jesus ever made were answers to questions of the Disciples. Asking questions is a major way that helps us to increase our learning skill in any field of endeavor.

You are not a failure

You are not a failure
By Adenuga Sunday Joseph

The best secret that you can ever find out is this, that ‘God is a good God’. When you discover this secret and you believe so much in it, then you are not far from success. Everything that you can ever desire on earth can only be yours because God is good. The Bible says in Psalm 118:1,
“…. For the Lord is good and His mercies endureth forever”.

Equal Time

God gives every human being on earth the same time, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. No matter how influential or connected, he cannot have more than twenty-four hours a day. God is so good, He gave us the gift of time, and the same time is given to every human being on the face of the earth. What you do with your time determines what you will become in a few years time. If a man waste his time on earth, he will reap the harvest of failure and such men are always blaming God. Stop blaming God for your failure; many fail in life because they did not manage their time well. A wasted time leads to a wasted life, which leads to a failed life.
The first point I want you to note in talking about the goodness of God is to be grateful for the gift of time. What you do with your time will affect the quality of your life.
Spend your time studying about anything and in a few years time, you will become an expert in that thing. If you spend a good time studying the word of God, the result will be a rub off of God on you. The word of God is God John 1:1; you must also realize that the word of God is the work of God. Anytime the word of God is spoken, the work of God follows. For example, when the word of God came forth and said “let there be light” the work of God follows and the result is “and there was light”.
Another example, when Peter said to the man sitting at the beautiful gate of the temple; “Silver and gold have I none, but such as I have give I thee; in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk”. Then the work of God follows, “the man was walking and leaping and praising God”.
What am I trying to infer? Anytime you provoke the word of God, the work of God is inevitable. When you spend your time in the word of God, the work of God will be evident in your life. When you are full of the Holy Spirit and the word of God, the work of God will have free course in your life because the word of God is the carrier of the work of God. That is the reason it is impossible to do the work of God without the proper understanding of the word of God. Those ministers who claim they are doing God’s work and are not students of the word, I wonder the kind of work thy are doing for God. I don’t do any work for God until I speak the word of God, when I speak the word of God, then the work of God will be manifested. Mine is to speak the word of God, God’s is to confirm the word with signs. These signs are the works of God, and it is only God that can do His work. All I do is speak; He does His work of healing, blessing, deliverance, salvation, protection etc. I cannot heal anybody, but I can speak the word of God to your life and the word will produce the work of healing in your life if you believe. I cannot make you wealthy, but I can speak the word of God that gives you power to get wealth. I can speak the word of salvation and the result will be the work of God called salvation. Oh, how I pray that your eyes are opened to see this truth.
Speak the word and the work manifest; it’s as simple as ABC. Many speak the word of God and think that it does not work, the word works friend, keep saying it and never quit saying it. When you speak the word long enough, it produces the work of God and this is the point of miracle. Those who speak get result and those who do not speak the word think that God is partial.
We are talking about the management, what you spend your time doing is what you will become. From now on be careful how you spend your time, you have i68 hours in a week, how do you spend these hours?
If you want to be successful in life spend good time studying the people who have made it, how they did it. Spend your time doing what you really like to accomplish.
God’s sun shines on all and his rain falls on all. God is a good God, he has given us all equal opportunity, and God is not partial. You can be rich, and wealthy, if you choose to be; poverty is by choice. Do you know that no one was born poor or rich? We were all born equally (naked). No one was born with actual silver spoon in his or her mouths; the Bible proves that proverb wrong. Prov. 10:4 says ‘he becometh poor that dealeth with slack hand, but the hands of the diligent maketh rich.’ To become means to turn to something that was not originally. Crude oil was not petrol, it was proccessed and part of it became petrol. When the Bible says he becometh poor that dealeth with slack hands, it means until you become lazy, you cannot become poor. Here it is clear to every intelligent human being that here on earth we are all equal but people become poor if they are lazy and if hardworking they make riches for themselves. I know you will say “what of those born to a rich family?’ yes, they will grow up and they will have to make riches for themselves and if they are not careful, if they are lazy, they will become poor.
I’ve seen many children of rich people die in poverty, languishing in prison, in bondage to hard drugs and some becoming armed robbers. Your family’s wealth will help you to a good start, but when the chips are down, you have to become rich or poor depending on how and what you do with your hands.
Most of the world’s greatest men came from poor families. Being born to a poor family is more of a challenge than a disadvantage. If you see it as a challenge, you will thank God for He is good, and He will help you to make it in life. On the other hand, if you see it as a disadvantage, it is too bad, you will blame God, you will always complain and this leads to failure.We all have equal access to greatness in life. God is very good to all of us.
Dear reader, please believe this you are not a failure, it does not matter what you are going through, see yourself as a success instead.

How I Became Wealthy
by Tony Rush

Someone asked me again today.
"Tony, how did you become wealthy?"
There's probably a lot of answers to that question but the answer I gave (and nearly always do) is simply this:
To become wealthy, you have to think like a wealthy person.
Every week, I talk to dozens of people who dream of becoming wealthy. They're tired of working more hours for less money. They're tired of never seeing their family. They're tired of spending their vacation time visiting relatives and letting their kids play with their cousins.
And so they've called me to talk about becoming wealthy. And it's very easy for me to see which ones are going to actually succeed and which ones will continue to struggle.
I simply watch how they think.
For example, if someone is struggling to pay their bills and that is their REASON for why they're starting a business, that person will find a way to be successful. They're motivated. They're focused on a solution. They realize that -- if things are going to change -- it has to start with them. And they're committed to be successful.
On the other hand, if a person says "Oh, I can't get started in business, I'm too broke".....that person has already lost. Because they are choosing to let their circumstances dictate what they can do. They will continue to use that situation as an excuse for why they can't be more successful. Which means that they are creating their own self-fulfilling prophecy.
I can usually call these people back in 6 months and they're no better off than they were when they first contacted me.
What's the difference?
It's how people THINK. This why Napoleon Hill titled his book, "Think and Grow Rich".
Wealthy people think differently than broke people. They don't ask "can I?" They ask "how can I?"
One of my favorite authors, Ayn Rand, once said, "What do you mean who's going to let me? You mean, who is going to stop me!"
Back when Jessica and I chose to start our business, we were broke. We were living in a very small cinder-block house. We had no heat. I was earning less than $1,000 a month. We were two months late on our rent. Our car broke down frequently.
But we believed things could be better. We believed there was a way we could become wealthy and start living the life we deserved.
When it came to finding the money to start our business, we could have easily said, "I don't have the money." But, what would have changed? It's not like either of us had a rich uncle who was suddenly going to remember us on his deathbed. Or that our fairy godmother was going to show up and hand us lots of money just because we wished for it.
No, we did what a lot of people do: we scraped and borrowed and did whatever we had to do. We sold things we owned. Jessica took a part-time job on a short-term basis. I did odd-jobs for a friend of mine.
And when we made the decision that we were not going to let fear or other obstacles stand in our way, things started coming together in a way that we could have never planned or predicted.
So, if the question is, "How do you become wealthy?" the answer is simply, "Start thinking like a wealthy person".
Would a billionaire every say, "No, I can't do that."? No. they say, "That's what I'm going to do" and they go find a way.
There are two kinds of people in the world: stoppable and unstoppable.
Which are you?

GOD IS NOT PARTIAL
BY ADENUGA S JOSEPH

As I was preparing to go to my office on Friday 30th Sept. 2005, I heard a voice from the inside of me saying, “God is not partial”. It did not at first have any meaning to me but as I got to the office and sat down for my usual daily meditation, these words floated in my spirit again ‘God is not partial’.
At that moment, I knew that the Holy Spirit was up to something in my life again. The outcome of my encounters with the Holy Spirit is this book in your hands.
The Holy Spirit allowed me to see the fact that God is not to be blamed for any misfortune that befalls any human being. My orientation and opinion changed. I used to believe that some people are more loved by God than the others; that some triumph over life’s problems with relative ease while others struggle without any sign of breakthrough. Many have even died in the struggle without any visible sign of success. Why is God so unfair to this group of people? That used to be my thinking until now. The Lord opened my understanding to know that God loves us equally but we determine the level of God’s love for us. You can endear yourself to God’s heart that compels God to love you and be committed to your course than any other man’s on earth.
Let me explain it with this statement ‘God loves a cheerful giver’. This is a statement of truth, and it is an absolute truth. When you give cheerfully, you have compelled God to love you more than those who will not give cheerfully. When God is in love with you, guess what? He will support you, help you, fight for you and will always be there for you. Do you understand? Remember when you first fall in love with somebody? You could almost do anything for him or her.
But the Bible says in John 3:16
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Also in the book of 1 John 4:16, we read
And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in Him. See also 1 John 3:1
God loves the whole world, all of us equally. What you do with the word of God determines how you let the love of God upon your life grow and increase.
God is not partial; He has made it easy for any one of us to rise to stardom. He has given to us, all things that pertain to life and godliness; it is now up to you to use these things that God has given to your advantage. In this encounter with the Holy Spirit, God opened my eyes of understanding to know that we all are the decision makers of the level of levels of God’s love to us.
Jesus answered and said unto him, ‘if anyone loves me, he will keep my word, and my father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home in him. John 14:23
Keeping God’s word is the only proof of our love for God. When you love God, you keep His word. To keep God’s word means to be a doer of the word, a practitioner of the word. You speak the word, you believe the word and you are only moved by the word.
When you are that committed to God’s word, God is committed to loving you and the result is favor unlimited. The meaning is that you have connected something; you have opened up to some mysterious blessings as a result of keeping the word of God. The blessing will not come by chance or luck; neither will you experience it because you are dark or fair. The blessing will become yours, the unlimited favor will pursue you and overtake you as a result of what you had done – keeping the word of God. It follows then that God has already favored us all, many do not know it; you decided to tap into the boundless store of divine favor. You have taken the kingdom of God by the force of going the extra-mile in being a doer of the word.
This whole world is a very rich and fertile garden, the owner-God, has provided the rich soil, the good condition and favorable weather for anything to grow in it. You only harvest whatever you sow according to Gal. 6:7
Be not deceive: God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he reap.
My intension in writing this book is to share with you some truth I learnt from the Holy Spirit. If you discover this truth, it will cause you to review your life and do something about yourself that will take you forward to progress and victory in life.
If you follow the truth as stated step by step, you will begin to notice a very clear progress in your life, business and ministry. Have a good time reading. I pray that your understanding will be opened to see the deep truth contained herein. Before you go further, remember this, “But without faith, it is impossible to please God …” It therefore follows that it is possible to please God if you have faith. To please someone brings to favor with that one. When you through faith please God, you can imagine the inestimable blessing that can follow you which will never follow another person that do not please God. Get it straight from onset that God is not partial, but you can through wisdom make Him to say ‘yes’ to all the good you demand from Him.
From now on, life will never give you a ‘no’ as the answer; you will always get a ‘yes’ from life in Jesus name.
I thank the Almighty God for giving me the opportunity to writearticle that have potency to lift any man from the level of mediocrity to the level excellence. When the Lord called me, He clearly spoke to my heart that He will use me to raise up many successful people on the face of the earth. He is the one that is doing it in me (for I am only yielding to His wishes). Carrying out this awesome assignment is not a mean task; it has given birth to this minstry and this website and I believe that you will never recover from the blessings that God will give you through reading this article. Hope you are blessed reading it.

Succeeding in life inspite of all odds

The Facts of Life (TV series)
The Facts of Life (TV series) (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
I have learnt from experience and the word of God that life is full of battles. While in secondary school and learning about the force of gravity, I never ceased to wonder what was on earth pulling everything down. Looking up to see an airplane in the sky flying, I took knowledge to understand that a greater power (force) than that of gravity must be responsible to keep the air- plane in the sky and not only that, to also keep it moving. I was able to deduce that there are forces on earth but there are greater forces. To get a job done, you must of necessity exercise a greater force, apply power against the forces of life that tends to disturb you from getting the job done, this is the battle of life I am talking about – applying greater power over problems.
The earlier you know that life is full of battles, the better for you. This knowledge will eliminate in your life the ignorance that falls people into the pit of failure and abandon poverty. No matter how you look at life, you will observe that there are forces in place that makes it tough for you to have things (especially good things) on the bed of roses.
The battle of life starts from conception of a yet to be born baby. Consider the about 500 million sperms released by your father to fertilize just one egg in your mother’s womb. All the sperms make a dash to the egg, the smartest, the fastest, the God ordained seed (i.e. you) made it to the egg; you happened to make it finally after a lot of ‘fighting’ or let me say ‘struggle’ or better still ‘competition’. It was a battle you know? But by God’s purpose and intension, you won. The implication is that more than 499 million sperms (of the same specie and source as you) died in the battle. Infact, exactly about 499,999,999 sperms died in the battle of making it to planet earth. In the real world, ‘the failure’ or the ‘war casualties’ do always outnumber the successful or the winners in life’s battles. The reason is because many falls in life’s battle because they are ignorant of the battle of life, many are not aware of this battle we are talking about. The sad thing is that ignorance is not an excuse for failure, no, not even in law.
Let me give you the example of an ancient man, living in an uncivilized society, he was suddenly brought into the city, as he passed by, he saw a pole where electric cable was hanging with electricity running. This man, been ancient touched the cable; he was immediately electrocuted. The electricity did not pity this man’s ignorance and spare him the pain of death. The electricity has done the damage never considering the ignorance of this man just coming into a civilized word. Infact the more ignorant you are of the battles of life, the easier it is for you to be run over, to be overcome and overpowered.
At birth, the battle of life continues, the child cries and weeps. Why? There is a change of environment, the child seem to feel the impact of the battle of life. As the child grows, there is the placenta problem; the teething problem, all these are battles. Talk of the time the child begins to crawl, learning to walk, think about the care the child will need at this stage of development. How many children have died as a result of negligence, we’ve heard of children electrocuted, crawled into a well and perished inside the well, get burned to death, drink acid as a result of not been properly taken care of. Talk about battles – battle of life is real, no one is exempted the Bible says in Proverbs. 22:6
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
This training is very important if you want that child to grow up to be a winner in life. This is so because life never provides anybody with perfect situation, a problem comes after a victory is won over another. Are you ready for this? Most successful leaders will tell you that every mountain surmounted always brings with the victory some challenges. That is why it is easier to get to the top than to maintain the top position. Those at the top are faced with more challenges of life.
Let’s consider some of the battles of life that is so common to man everywhere. Let’s start from our school experience. As a teacher, I’ve seen most children’s first day in school; it’s not always easy to get that child to part with mum. The child faces a new situation (school), the child needs to learn new things, learn to read, write, and behave. Those who are teachers of children will agree with me that the hardest job on earth is to bring up children. But the love of the profession constrains us to do it with all joy, learning is like a battle to the young child, it is like Mount Everest. After a little time the child begins to master some things and the interests begin to rise, at this stage a genius might be made/born.
Some have won the battle, some are millionaires, but surely many are still struggling. Why is it that some triumph over life almost effortlessly and some struggle and struggle and even die struggling? This book is out to show you from the word of God, what you too can do to get to the level of success and stay there. You are about to discover the secret of life that (if you follow it faithfully) will change you and make you to be an all round winner in life.
There is battle of getting the right partner to marry, many have married the wrong spouses and have become failures in life. Even some ministries have been negatively affected as a result of marriage battles (in the minister’s life). You can win over this aspect of life too. What of those who did not miss it in choosing the right partner but are finding it difficult to get the fruit of the womb. I have seen a brother and sister (who were both virgins as at the day of wedding), but were childless for more than seven years of marriage – talk about battles. It is not warfare between tribes and nations. It is the battle of life everyone must face. All of us will face his/her own, who you are will determine the outcome of the battle. I John 4:4 states "You are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you than he that is in the world".
You have overcome them. Who are the "them"? "Them" are the forces of wickedness; the sicknesses; the diseases; the death; the poverty and lack, and all forms of evil that are constantly battling with you.
Some are so bound by sicknesses and diseases that their lives are almost at a stand still. To them, life’s battles start and end in sickness; if they are healed; they think they can never have problems again. Wait until they are healed, another problem set in (of different nature), they begin to pray again, run here and there and yet after they get the victory on that one, not too soon, another problem come. You want to know the facts of life? Life is full of battles, no matter who you are and where you live, the battle is the same, to pull you down (much like the force of gravity). The purpose of life’s battles is to humble you, run you down and put you to shame. Like the aeroplane, you must be up and be sustained in that up position, keep moving, I mean keep flying, displacing the forces of gravitation attraction of problems.
What have you learnt so far? Life is full of battles, everyone must face his, and no one is exempted from these battles. Eccl. 9:11 states
"… That the race is not to the swift nor the battle to the strong".
The strongest men do not always win the battle. I know a lady who told me she has had about eighteen abortions before she got married, when she got married, she gave birth to a baby boy. Five years after, she had three more children, and as far as fruit of the womb is concerned, she never had a problem. I have also seen sisters who were actually virgins before they got married but had problems before getting just one child. The battle is not to the strong, the race is not to the fastest runner. The one who wins must be divinely favored and supernaturally supported.
There are battles, but you can overcome. God knew that there are battles but He has given you victory. Read Deuteronomy 2:24
Rise ye up, take your journey, and pass over the river Arnon: behold, I have given into thine hand Sihon the Amorite, king of Heshbon, and his land: begin to possess it and contend with him in BATTLE
God spoke to the children of Israel, I have given you Heshbon land but you need to CONTEND in battle to get it. It is yours, I have given it to you, but you must FIGHT to get it.
If God opens your understanding, and you believe this, you will know that God is saying ‘victory is yours in life’s battle but you have a part to play which no man can help you, only you can’. God is saying, ‘you have victory, I have given it to you, possess it, but go out and fight to own it’.
Success is sure but it is not free, whoever talks about effortless success is deceiving you. No success is free or cheap, "there is a price to pay" is what God is saying. Jesus said in Rev. 3:8
"… Behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it; …"
You are favored by God to win the battle, the door of blessing is opened before you, and no man can shut it. Devil cannot, principalities do not have the power, no, not Angels, not life, not death Rom. 8: 38,39. YOU ARE THE ONLY FORCE that can shut that door against yourself. Once you shut it, you can plead for mercy and open it again but know this – NO ONE can shut it, only you can. Yes, only you through ignorance, through laziness, through negative confession, through negative thinking, through failure mentality, through lack of faith, through doubt, through not obeying the word of the Lord. You can shut the door to your success and there is nothing God can do to help you once you’ve decided to shut that door – then, it’s a pity.
Many ‘trees’ have died as a ‘seed’, ‘many vice chancellor of universities have roasted away as ‘primary school teachers’, many great men have died as ordinary paupers because they shut the door that Christ opened for them.
Look at yourself inside out; Are you a big tree in the seed form? Please don’t die a seed, you can become a big tree but listen, the seed must be planted first, and then it will germinate and become a tree as you nurture it. Do something with your life, make it count, be ready for changes, God has a place for you at the top. True, there are battles in life, but you can overcome them because greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world.
On the other, hand if you are not born again the one in you is smaller than the devil. You have the nature of the falling man (devil) and you do not have the spiritual ability to overcome the evil one, and can therefore never win in life’s battle. The greatest opponents in life’s battle have their origin from the devil. If you are under the devil it naturally follows that you cannot win over your master. Since the devil is your master, he is wiser than you; he knows the tactics and how to turn the battle against you. The only way out is for you to give your life unto Jesus, the author and the finisher of your faith, open the door of your heart to Him to come in and dine with you forever. Then you can be sure that ‘Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world’. (See also Colossians 1:13,14)
If you make the decision today to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, pray this prayer: -
Heavenly Father, thank you for loving me so much that you sent your only begotten son to die for my sin. I realize that I am a sinner doomed for death, and eternal damnation. I hereby accept your offer of life through our Lord Jesus Christ; I open the doors of my heart to you Lord Jesus. I know that you died for me even though you never sinned so that I can be free from the penalty of sin. Thank you for loving me and forgiving me my sin.
NOW THAT YOU ARE SAvED
I heartily congratulate you. Please write me so that I can send you the materials that will help you to grow in the Lord. Your testimony will encourage others; write me today to share with me how this book has helped you to make this decision. I love you. Congratulation one’s again
