when a read some comments i wonder if we really have youths that can be leaders of tomorrow. I wonder how an educate young and vibrant fellow will concern his/herself with the PMB tears while the main issue is kept under the carpet. This article tells us about over N3tn fraud and all we do is to defend the perpetrators by insulting the president? I still maintain my stand that if the only thing PMB administration achieve is to expose and recover looted funds, I will give him kudos for job well done. at least, when another administration come on board, they will have resource to work with and not the country been plunge into a mess before handing over which is what brought us here. I will advise that as learned people, lets address issues and not people. one thing is certain, all those indicted committed the crime. so why applauding them? Let PMB probe GEJ administration and when PDP take over, let them probe PMB administration too and by so doing, accountability will be restore while corruption will be reduce to a tolerable stage if not eliminated. I see a Nigeria where youth will form alliance to take over government true fair democracy. unfortunately not with comments that lack purpose and direction. Do enjoy your day.

Way to go! cheesy

The oil communities lay curses daily on the government hence nothing good can be achieved with stolen funds even as the environment is polluted and abandoned ,

SHUN IDOLATRY

TEXT: EZEKIEL 16:15-34

"Thou hast also taken thy fair jewels of my gold and of my silver, which I had given thee, and madest to thyself images of men, and didst commit whoredom with them" (Ezekiel 16:17).

In many nations, nowadays, what should ordinarily count as blessings to them have become sources of trouble or suffering. Some countries, blessed with rich natural resources, have allowed this to become a curse to the point that they no longer enjoy peace and a robust economy. Earnings from the natural resources are not put to proper use. Rather, various activities that did not elevate the worship of God are enthroned; idolatry is courted; greed and wickedness are elevated to statecraft. Often, the result is monumental crisis that has left such countries writhing in moral, social and economic decay.

This was the case with Israel in the text. She used the bounty that was given to her by God as an opportunity to make trade alliances with the nations. The silver and gold that was given to her by God was used to make the idols. It was expected that when traders passed through Palestine, the Israelites would have an opportunity to talk to them about the living God. Instead of being the international influence on other nations originally intended by God, she adopted the gods of the nations and played harlotry with them. She compromised her faithfulness to God, deteriorated morally to the point of offering her children in sacrifice to idols.

Some category of believers are drifting into the world as a result of blessings that should ordinarily draw them closer to God. A good number of believers, who received God's mercy in the area of financial blessing, appear to have forgotten. Regrettably, they embraced idolatry as a lifestyle. They forgot that the Lord lifted them from the dungeon of poverty. Regrettably, they are subtly but progressively imbibing the lifestyle and practices of the world. Such people must retrace their steps, turn their focus on God and keep their eyes on the covenant they made to serve Him, in want and in plenty.

Bible Reading in one Year: 2 KINGS 18-19

Thought for the day: Those who follow the way of the world, lose their rights before God.

VP Osinbajo's Address at the Inauguration of the Deeper Life Bible Church Headquarters Building in Lagos.
April 24th, 2018 Posted in LATEST NEWS, SPEECHES AND REMARKS


It is a special privilege and honour to be here at the formal inauguration of the new Headquarters building and auditorium of the Deeper Life Bible Church.

This is one of the proudest moments for me as a Christian, seeing this great edifice being dedicated for the propagation of the gospel of Jesus Christ and for the disciplining of the saints.

This is not merely a large building, it is expertly done, built by the best workmen, with the most modern amenities and cutting-edge technology.

In the surroundings of this edifice in this neighbourhood, are investments in the community, a connecting bridge, street lights and greatly improved access roads. Because we know the Deeper Life Bible Church and we know of its commitment to the full gospel of Jesus Christ, we know that the motivation for this is to honour Jesus Christ and glorify His name in this land.

There is no question at all, for those of us who have watched how this church has grown, for those of us who lived in this neighbourhood at one point in time, saw what was here before, that the 'glory of this latter temple is greater than the former,' says the Lord of hosts. 'And we declare in the words of scripture that in this place the Lord of hosts will give peace'.

But there is another reason why the dedication of this sanctuary is at an exceptional moment in the history of the church of Jesus Christ in Nigeria and the world.

We are in the end times. Indeed the time of his return is closer than when we first believed. The immediate implication is that there must be an urgency in the fulfilment of the great commission. We must work harder to obey the command and commission in Matthew 28:19-20 – "to go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded."

As we work and recognise that we must work to meet with this commission, we must accept that there will be resistance, the devil is even more desperate and devious as the end comes nearer. So, what are some of the resistance we see? First, there is a resistance to the building of churches, there are specific cases of places where specific allegations have been made of valid applications to build churches have been refused.

The President has mandated that I take up those cases with the specific State and local authorities, the right to freedom of worship is also the right to build places of worship.

Second is the physical persecution of Christians; a phenomenon we have seen for years. Just this morning on my way here, I was notified the violation of a catholic church in Benue State by armed killers who went in while a burial mass was taking place and they killed a priest and some worshippers.

It is not only a heinous sacrilege, but high wickedness to kill persons in a place of worship. As I discussed these issues with the President and other ministers in the Security Council, it is evident to me and to many, that the devil's bigger agenda is to stoke up a religious conflict in Nigeria, one that will make it impossible for anyone to preach the gospel or even for Muslims to worship in their mosques. A few days ago in Bama, a mosque was bombed and many died. Many such examples abound.

While the security agencies continue to work relentlessly to hunt down the perpetrators of these evil acts and to bring a permanent end to all of the killings going on in the name of herdsmen, Boko Haram, or in any other name, we as a body of Christ must not lose focus.

The enemy wants us to stand on our pulpits and preach hate, we will not. We will obey the Lord Jesus Christ who said that we must love our enemies and pray even for those who persecute us. No person born or yet to be born, can stop the march of the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. Indeed as the Word of God says, this Word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

In any event, we are assured by the Lord Himself that He is building His church and gates of hell shall never prevail against it.

In this, we are supremely confident. For those of us, Christians in government are sometimes referred to as Esthers. We are told that we are in office for a time such as this. What is often forgotten, is that when Mordecai told Esther that she was in the palace for such a time, she said to him in Esther 4:16 "Go, gather all the Jews who are present in Shushan, and fast for me; neither eat nor drink for three days, night or day. My maids and I will fast likewise. And so I will go to the king, which is against the law; and if I perish, I perish!" This I say to the church as well. It is the duty of the church, as we ask that the church prays for those in government, that the church upholds the hands of those in government, not by complaining but by supporting us in the place of prayer. I ask that you pray for every one of us in the place of authority in this land.

Let me congratulate our father in the Lord, and the General Superintendent of the Deeper Life Bible Church, Pastor W F Kumuyi, a man of uncommon humility and commitment to the spread of the undiluted gospel of Jesus Christ, with candour and integrity.

Despite these permissive times, your preaching of holiness and righteous behaviour and all of what you preach not just to the people of Deeper Life Bible Church, but the whole of our nation. These are important messages, especially for our country as we battle the cancer of corruption. God blessed the generations of David for merely thinking about building a temple for the Lord.

Sir, you have gone beyond thinking about building, you have rallied the church, to put their resources small and large, to build this incredible edifice, the 4th largest in the world. But more importantly, God has helped you to build the true temple in the hearts of so many. Surely, the Lord will reward you and your generations in the way only He can in Jesus name.

Finally, as we dedicate this temple in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, I pray in the words of Solomon in 2 Chronicles 6:40 "Now, my God, I pray, let your eyes be open and let your ears be attentive to the prayers that are made in this place" by all of the people in this place in Jesus name Amen!
