|Most Problems Are Not Spiritual But A Result Of The Human Character by TemmyT002(m): 7:39am On Feb 21|
Many problems are not spiritual but they are as a result of many people's characters...
OGUN ENIYAN MAA KO is a song by the renowned Evangelist Ojo Ade and the translation in English shows that most problems that people face are not as a result of spiritual problems but problems that happen as a result of their characters.
The song rightly teaches that one way to make those problems go away is to think, meditate and change your behavior. That’s what the lyrics of chorus of the song are all about.
Check out the song here: OGUN ENIYAN MAA KO Audio
The main parts of the song begins as he made an illustration of a woman (imaginary) who hates Ojo Ade’s song because she believes his songs are abusive when in fact, they are just plain truth and blunt. (People who listens to Ojo Ade’s songs know that his songs are blunt and the truth.) Few people like listening to the truth.
He continues by saying that even as she hates the songs, her life has not changed for the better since she refuses to listen and change. (Her character is at work here).
The songs continues and explains how most fake prophets deceive people by telling them they have spiritual problems when it is actually their characters and behaviors that are the root of their problems.
Ojo Ade gave examples of how one’s characters can cause problems:
2. Keeping malice
3. Having short tempers
These listed are all examples of negative behaviors that can cause problems in one’s life.
The song continues with men who are stubborn and ladies who refuse to listen to their parents because they believe they are wiser, forgetting that kids who refuse to listen to their parents’ advice will suffer for it.
He continues with another story of an imaginary lady whose mates went to school like and got certificates and awards while she got herself impregnated. Instead of certificates, she got a baby and instead of becoming wiser, she continues to prostitute herself, getting picked by every dick and harry.
He also mentions the story of an imaginary man who is not lucky in buying houses or a car but he is lucky with women. He loves bringing different ladies to his home. And when problems come, he believes they are spiritual.
The song is rendered in the Ijesha dialect.
Lesson: Most problems are as a result of your character and not spiritual problems.
Here are some bible verses concerning the Character, courtesy of CBN.COM
The Value in Developing Good Character
Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have a peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. Romans 5:1-4 NIV
Do not be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character.” 1 Corinthians 15:33 NIV
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – think about such things. Philippians 4:8 NIV
The Elements of Good Character
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. Galatians 5:22-23 NIV
They [King Joash & the priests] did not require an accounting from those to whom they gave the money to pay the workers, because they acted with complete honesty. 2 Kings 12:15 NIV
Whoever walks in integrity walks securely, but whoever takes crooked paths will be found out. Proverbs 10:9 NIV
May integrity and uprighteness protect me, because my hope, Lord, is in you. Psalm 25:21 NIV
In everything set them an example by doing what is good. In your teaching show integrity, seriousness and soundness of speech that cannot be condemned, so that those who oppose you may be ashamed because they have nothing bad to say about us. Titus 2:7-8 NIV
