|Religion / Divine Promotion For The Wise by kpakpandoN(m): 6:17am|
Divine promotion is a reward for those who live holy. God is the Judge, and only He can promote you. The devil is not the one who will promote you. There are two types of promotion according to Proverbs 3:35. These are: glory and shame. There is glorious promotion for the wise and shameful promotion for fools. Who are the wise? The Bible says that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom (Proverbs 1:7). Those who are wise fear God, and because of this, they live a holy life. They depart from sin. God says that such people will have a glorious promotion. A classical example of a wise man, who as a result of his fear of God abstained from sin, is Joseph in Egypt. He refused to have carnal knowledge of his master’s wife, though it was offered to him ‘free of charge’. In Genesis 39:9, He queried this offer saying:
“......how then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God?”
The end of the story is that Joseph became the Prime Minister of Egypt. Who are fools? Fools are those who can see danger ahead and still walk into it. Fools are those who know that the wages of sin is death and yet continue to sin. Fools are those who know that the only way to get to the kingdom of God is by becoming born-again and yet they refuse salvation. Fools are those who have decided to continue living in sin, after knowing that without holiness, no man shall see God.
You must live a holy life if you want glorious promotion. God is no respecter of persons. He will never bend His standards. Promotion puts you on top. Being on top comes with very many advantages, according to Deuteronomy 28:1:
“And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the Lord thy God will set thee on high above all the nations of the earth.”
God will give you divine promotion if you live holy. However, if you do not live holy, you will go down. Those who are on top enjoy it up there. Those who are below remain in suffering. I prefer being on top. When you are on top, you will get special protection. The one who is on top is special and of more value than the one who is below. Can you see how wise it is to live holy? I pray that today, the Lord will give you the grace you need to live holy for divine promotion, in Jesus’ Name. All you need to do is to make up your mind that you will no longer live a life of sin anymore, and the Lord will help your decision.

Does anyone care what is happening at the land borders? There should be stricter checks at those entry points at the borders. Just recently, someone was narrating how he spent an average of N2,500 (N2,000 on the Cameroonian side of the border and N3,000 when he crossed over to Nigerian side) on each of about 15 check points because he needed to come to Nigeria to do something important. I asked whether he was screened upon entry but he said No.
They keep telling us the boarders are closed. While complete closure of the borders might not be practicable, let government minimize the entry points and move in testing equipments there for exigency purposes. One case is all a country needs to go down. Patrick Sawyer nearly did that to us. We might not be so lucky next time.
God bless Nigeria.

|Foreign Affairs / Coup In Burkina Fasso,army Dissolve Campore's Government by Omooba77: 6:15am|
Burkina Faso’s President Blaise Compaore was toppled on Thursday as the army took power after protesters set parliament ablaze in a popular uprising against the veteran leader’s 27-year-rule.Around 30 people were killed and more than 100 injured in violence that rocked that rocked the country, the leading opposition figure Benewende Sankara said.It was not clear if the toll related to the whole of the country or just the capital Ouagadougou, where protesters burned down parliament in an uprising against the 27-year rule of President Blaise Compaore.The demonstrators earlier forced the government to scrap a vote on controversial plans to allow Compaore to extend his reign, with tens of thousands of people joining a mass rally in the capital Ouagadougou calling for the strongman to go.Hundreds of people stormed parliament and other public buildings including the national television headquarters, ransacking offices and setting fire to cars, despite a heavy police and army presence across the capital.The army, in a hastily arranged press conference, announced it was seizing power and pledged to restore constitutional order within 12 months. It imposed a dusk-to-dawn curfew and announced the dissolution of Compaore’s government and the national assembly, and the creation of a transitional body to run the country.The communique, read out by an officer, was signed by the army chief of staff Nabere Honore Traore.
The army’s seizure of power in Burkina Faso on Thursday amounted to a “coup”, an opposition leader told AFP, adding that they consider the president’s departure “non-negotiable”.President Blaise Compaore, who has ruled the country for 27 years, “is again in the process of duping the people,” said opposition leader Benewende Sankara. “We have been saying for a long time that he must hand in his resignation. His departure is non-negotiable.”Burkina army seizes power after uprising against veteran rulerBurkina Faso’s President Blaise Compaore was toppled on Thursday as the army took power after protesters set parliament ablaze in a popular uprising against the veteran leader’s 27-year-rule.The demonstrators earlier forced the government to scrap a vote on controversial plans to allow Compaore to extend his reign, with tens of thousands of people joining a mass rally in the capital Ouagadougou calling for the strongman to go.Hundreds of people stormed parliament and other public buildings including the national television headquarters, ransacking offices and setting fire to cars, despite a heavy police and army presence across the capital.The army, in a hastily arranged press conference, announced it was seizing power and pledged to restore constitutional order within 12 months. It imposed a dusk-to-dawn curfew and announced the dissolution of Compaore’s government and the national assembly, and the creation of a transitional body to run the country.The communique, read out by an officer, was signed by the army chief of staff Nabere Honore Traore.There was no mention of Compaore’s whereabouts.Earlier a statement purportedly from the presidency said a state of emergency had been declared.“The army chief of staff is charged with carrying out this decree, which enters into force from this day,” it said.The document was not dated and carried a signature that did not resemble the president’s usual one.The United States, Burkina Faso’s former colonial ruler France and the African Union all voiced alarm over the unrest gripping the poor west African nation.UN chief Ban Ki-moon dispatched a special envoy to help restore calm and the European Union called for an end to the violence.“The army is united with the people,” said Benewende Sankara, a leading light in the opposition.Army chief Traore had earlier met with retired general Kouame Lougue, a former defence minister being touted by the opposition as a replacement for Compaore, to discuss the crisis.Tens of thousands of protesters massed on the streets of the capital shouting “Lougue in power!”– Worst crisis since 2011 –At least one man was killed in the chaos that erupted just before lawmakers were due to vote on legislation that would allow 63-year-old Compaore — who took power in a 1987 coup — to contest next year’s election, AFP correspondents said.The government, in the country’s worst crisis since a wave of mutinies shook the country in 2011, later announced it was calling off the vote.Police and soldiers, out in force after mass rallies earlier this week, failed to stop the onslaught despite using tear gas against the protesters.Black smoke billowed out of smashed windows at the parliament building, where several offices were ravaged by flames, although the main chamber so far appeared to be unscathed.Several hundred protesters also broke into the headquarters of the national television station RTB, pillaging equipment and smashing cars, correspondents said.Crowds of people later massed near the presidential palace but were being held back by troops from the presidential guard who fired warning shots into the air.The ruling party headquarters in the second city of Bobo Dioulasso and the city hall was also torched by protesters, witnesses said.The United States said it was “deeply concerned” about the crisis and criticised the attempts to alter the constitution, while France appealed for calm and said it “deplored” the violence.Senegal meanwhile advised its citizens in Burkina Faso to stay indoors.– Anger at ‘constitutional coup’ –The legislature had been due to examine a proposed amendment that would allow Compaore to run for re-election in November 2015.His bid to cling to power has angered many, including young people in a country where 60 percent of the population of almost 17 million is under 25.Many have spent their entire lives under the leadership of one man and — with Burkina Faso stagnating at 183rd out of 186 countries on the UN human development index — many have had enough.The situation is being closely watched across Africa where at least four heads of state are preparing or considering similar changes to stay in power, from Burundi to Benin.Compaore was only 36 when he seized power in the coup in which his former friend and one of Africa’s most loved leaders, Thomas Sankara, was ousted and assassinated.He has remained in power since, re-elected president four times since 1991 — to two seven-year and two five-year terms.Known in colonial times as Upper Volta, the landlocked country became independent from France in 1960 and its name was changed to Burkina Faso (“the land of upright men”) in 1984.

I don't know why gay people have to make this announcement all the time to tell
the world that they are gay? it is like there is something in them that keeps
screaming and tormenting them till they make it public. I mean.... I bang chics as if
I am in Bangladesh but I have never seen the need to make it public.. it is no body's
business. since it is something between you and your partner then I dont think you
anyone any explanation or public announcement. why do they do this?
well, let us see the crowd reaction to this. If Apple sales go higher, then we are
going to see more confessions from Samsung staff. But if Apple sales should start
dropping then I think Samsung is going to make all its staff take an oath to stay
silent about their s3xuality.
