|Crime / Re: Bandits Abduct 10 ABSU Students Along Uturu/Isuikwuato Road by derecho(m): 1:03pm On Sep 19|
“But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God...” Psalm 52: 8
The psalmist describes himself as an olive tree that grows green in the house of God.
One characteristic of the olive tree is that it can survive damage.
It may be burnt or cut down, but Botanists say that if there is a strand of the root of an olive tree, it will grow again.
Even if an axe is used in bringing it down, once there is still a root, growth is inevitable.
Other trees may go down finally when they are cut down, but for the olive tree, it is not final.
Beloved, you are like an olive tree that cannot be destroyed.
You have the anointing of survival, and whatever comes against you, you will survive.
No matter how hard your enemies fight you, you will survive.
No matter how fierce the battles against you become, you won’t be destroyed.
When men think you are finished, you will show up in grand style.
When men think they have taken you out, you will stage a mega comeback.
Your life is hid in Christ, and Christ in God, and no harm shall pull you down.
No attack on your health will lead to your death.
No financial constraint will put you out of circulation.
No conspiracy of the enemy will lead to your downfall.
No policy of people in power will cut short your progress.
Just like the attacks on the olive tree do not lead to its destruction, the attacks on you won’t destroy you.
Stop fretting on account of your adversaries and attacks.
Stop breaking your head on account of people who have taken the responsibility of pulling you down.
They may try, but they will certainly not succeed.
They may fight you, but they will never win.
They shall gather, but their gathering will come to nothing.
Even when they wound you, their wounds won’t be lethal.
Even when they throw their arrows at you, you will survive.
Live with the confidence of one who is not vulnerable to the enemy.
Put on the whole armour of God, and you will withstand every attack of the enemy.
Remember, you are like the olive tree; you can’t be destroyed.
2 Corinthians 4: 8-9 says: “8. We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; 9. Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;”
Declaration: I am like an olive tree that cannot be destroyed, in Jesus mighty name. Good day, have a blissful Sunday
|Politics / Re: Pay Pentecost Tax – Osinbajo Advises Preachers by derecho(m): 12:15pm On Sep 18|
Kindly watch his speech again...
It was at the Book Launch of Kumuyi: A Defender of The Faith.
I think he said "Pentecost task Not Tax"
He was referring to the life of Apostles written down in the acts of the Apostles.
Make una sofri dey find traffic.
Modified: He actually said TAX.
Howbeit he was talking about the sacrifices every preacher must undergo....not cash

I don leave am when I realized he can't appreciate basic scriptural truths.
However, he wasn't my focus (as usual whenever i comment online) but the people he's/ others are trying to delude on this forum.
But I don mark am sha except he comes with a different moniker.
|Romance / Re: Nigeria Lesbians Got Married Using Tattoos by derecho(m): 4:55pm On Sep 16|
I just realized... Not just this anyways. Atleast from your responses.
|Romance / Re: Nigeria Lesbians Got Married Using Tattoos by derecho(m): 4:50pm On Sep 16|
Then you don't understand the Bible.
If you do, you'll understand that simple statement. Jesus, the word of God, said so from the Old testament to the New Testament.
Everyone who reads the Bible knows this basic truth.
|Romance / Re: Nigeria Lesbians Got Married Using Tattoos by derecho(m): 4:44pm On Sep 16|
Your trying to explain it away is unnecessary.
Homosexuality is a sin.
|Romance / Re: Nigeria Lesbians Got Married Using Tattoos by derecho(m): 4:36pm On Sep 16|
Kindly go and re-read Matthew 5:27-28 to understand what Jesus was saying.
He, came to give clearer meaning to the Law.
In this case, He is saying " you were limiting it to the physical act BUT it starts from your lustful look, the intention ".
I honestly don't get your point.
Are you saying, a lesbian or gay doesn't lustfully look at their partner before the sexual act? Or that lesbianism or homosexuality is not a sin?
Do you think those nonsense are not premeditated?
So you didn't read Romans 1:28-31 which says " it's because they refuse to retain God in their understanding, that's why He gave them a reprobate mind to do what's no convenient "?
You explanation is not necessary. It's a simple matter, Every SIN is premeditated. Every action is preceded by an intention.
Ignorance of what is evil doesn't fully absolve you of SIN.
The issue of other SINful acts will be addressed BUT let it be clear THAT Homosexuality is a NO-NO and should not be encouraged.
Every gay needs help
|Romance / Re: Nigeria Lesbians Got Married Using Tattoos by derecho(m): 3:59pm On Sep 16|
Can you oblige us with judging "righteously"?
Besides, how has your response shown that homosexuality is not CONDEMNABLE?
In case you think " righteousness " is a big word, it simply means "being RIGHT according to The Word of God"
Even a person who doesn't read the Bible knows homosexuality is NOT RIGHT... So what exactly is your point?

The funny thing is, most homosexuals will not admit that it's an anomaly.
To think some would still love to adopt children is unbelievable.
I know it's a big challenge that stem from wrong exposure to sex and the interference of wrong spirits.
Unfortunately, we live in a world where the madman wants you to adopt their fashion as long as the madman can converse in English language, have access to the social media, or have some confused apologists.
Now parents buy rags for kids.It's becoming normal for girls to be nude.
In the nearest future, anyone who doesn't conform to these mad standards would be the new madman.
Imagine how they tag you homophobic when you speak against this nonsense.
They are quick to say "live and let live" , "it doesn't hurt anybody" etc. But you want to showcase it , you want our children to embrace it as normal, you are subtly pushing it YET YOU DON'T WANT US TO TALK?
How can it not hurt anybody? If we are not affected by it now and our children are not protected, have they not succeeded in destroying our future?
They are gradually teaching our children to tolerate it.They show them "successful" homosexuals. They are redefining marriage.
Yet some Naive persons are saying leave them.
If you are sane, please fight it whether the whole world come to accept it or not.Influence your friends and children to object to unwholesome practices. Help those involved in homosexual activities OUT of it.

If you speak like this, you clearly don't understand the Bible.
I suggest you speak on what you know.
Christian life is about bringing godliness ( God's kind of life) wherever we are.It will reflect in our judgment of what is right or wrong. In fact, it's our standard whether the other person believes it or not.
The word of God is not subject to argument.
All true Christians live by the Word of God, not popular culture or what is politically correct.

What is it about this vaccine?
Una no go market, or motor parks, na church una dey target.
With all the uncertainties, they still insist on vaccinating the populace.
Why are we not hearing so much about this vaccination in Kano or Sokoto? Why down South? Is it that they don't want to immune people in those places?

|Celebrities / Re: Kaffy Shafau: Marriage Isn’t An Upgrade by derecho(m): 6:31pm On Sep 09|
Hmmmn...the title, if that's what she meant by her post, is just a proof she doesn't know what marriage should be.
The way some just mislead people with pun is amazing.
For the record,
Marriage changes a lot of things.If could be for an upgrade, to borrow her word, or otherwise.
Marriage should be an upgrade to your life.If it won't, please stay single.
If you desire to improve, and you're married to the right person, you'll definitely improve.
On the flipside, if you marry the wrong person, instead of an upgrade you'll go down.
|Celebrities / Re: 2baba Married My Daughter - Pero Adeniyi's Father, Prince Jide Adeniyi by derecho(m): 4:40pm On Sep 04|
The simple question is :WAS THERE ANY MARRIAGE BETWEEN PERO AND INNOCENT IDIBIA?
If there was any,(Traditional, Court or any recognized by law) let us know.
Marriage is not about assumptions. It's a deliberate thing.
|Celebrities / Re: 2baba Married My Daughter - Pero Adeniyi's Father, Prince Jide Adeniyi by derecho(m): 7:24am On Sep 04|
No mind them.
I would have ignored them but to carry those nonsense come Church, which is supposed to be a ground and pillar of truth, vex me
|Celebrities / Re: 2baba Married My Daughter - Pero Adeniyi's Father, Prince Jide Adeniyi by derecho(m): 7:19am On Sep 04|
Kindly oblige us with the part of Yoruba land you are talking about.
Besides, so they are married because he considered them married?
|Celebrities / Re: 2baba Married My Daughter - Pero Adeniyi's Father, Prince Jide Adeniyi by derecho(m): 9:16pm On Sep 03|
I wonder where they get those ideas from. That's how some women will be telling us who men are.
That you are a womanizer doesn't mean other men are.
I remember a Sunday school session some years ago, where someone said women aren't moved by sight and that all men are moved by naked women. Imagine?
I stood up and reminded them that a man will only be moved when he sees what he's interested in and craves for . Even some womanizers would be turned off if they see some naked women.
Again, it's an illusion that women aren't moved by sight.
People go just read one book and wee just be parroting falsehoods
|Celebrities / Re: 2baba Married My Daughter - Pero Adeniyi's Father, Prince Jide Adeniyi by derecho(m): 9:00pm On Sep 03|
But this Papa funny o...
Na so marriage dey happen?
She said he loves him and he said he "wanted to" marry her.
Is that equal to marriage?
Wetin people don turn marriage to, I no understand again.
If he was married to your daughter and you watched him marry Annie with pomp and fanfare... No complaints?
|Celebrities / Re: Annie Idibia's Brother, Uduak, Disowns Her (Video) by derecho(m): 1:49pm On Sep 03|
It's easy to call him a fool but do you think you know what's happening more than Uduak?
I don't support him disowning the sister but I believe it's a subtle message.
Did you read him saying "no one should contact me about the issue"?
He must have spoken to the sister in private but Annie would have disregarded him.Prolly because she has "arrived" or she's the one feeding him.
She must have told him to leave her and treated him as nobody (as many have dubbed him here on NL).
The guy, like many men with ego, decided to dissociate himself from the "goddess" that provides for him.
Two things I perceive
1.He wants her to know he can be independent and
2. he doesn't support her actions
Away from that,
Principled men don't personalize things. If they believe, for example, that it is wrong to do something; they'd never bend the rules because you are their brother, sister, townsman etc.
|Celebrities / Re: Annie Replies Charles Idibia, 2Baba Brother: Stop Sucking Your Brother Dry by derecho(m): 12:33pm On Sep 03|
Na wa for you o.
So is Tuface a Yoruba man?Or is he legally married to Pero?
Imagine, she's entitled to EVERYTHING he has as a babymama.
Stop misleading people abeg.
If this is truly Yoruba culture, there'll be no need for marriage. Just get pregnant for a random guy and be automatically called his wife.
|Politics / Re: Kunle Olawunmi Wanted By Defence Intelligence Agency Over Channels TV Interview by derecho(m): 8:47pm On Aug 28|
So much debate...
I know it may be unethical for him to spill the beans.
However, I know the man can no longer be silent seeing the wanton killing enabled by a government that swore to protect us. He sure knows more than what is published and reported. He knows the implications of coming out to say what he said.
What he said is no secret to many observers.
The government is only embarrassed that he came out to say what he said.
How can any normal human support what is going on in Nigeria?
For those talking about authorization to say what he said, how is he different from our public servants, Buhari inclusive, who would do things without recourse to the rule of law? Why won't they lead by example?
I don't worry much about the massive corruption in government but WHY THE KILLINGS AND LIES?
I think more brave Nigerians would still speak up.
Things won't continue this way.
Imagine ,Wasting lives because of religion.
Kudos Prof. Olawunmi, you've just shown patriotism.
You owe Nigerians the truth even if it means dying.
You, for me, are a real soldier who isn't afraid to die for a just cause.
Not those Cowards lying and protecting killers of those who they promised to secure.

As much as i pity the guy,
I see the futile attempts by some people to defend homosexuality. Someone even said he/she wants to educate us.
First, Homosexuality is abnormal NO grammar can change that.
Besides, asking for people to tolerate abnormalities as norms makes it more dangerous. It is confusion and unnatural for a lady to desire sexual intimacy with another lady. Same for a man to burn with lust towards another man.
Let's just oblige those who see their genes as the culprit. They claim they were born that way.
If you were born with a tumor, would you choose to live with it all your life when you can get help and have it removed?
If you discovered very early in life that you have the urge to steal.Will you resign to "fate" and say I WAS BORN A THIEF?
All the story of THAT IS HOW I WAS BORN is a lie.
There's is usually a wrong exposure to sex which leads to unhealthy sexual cravings.
I don't want to bring in the spiritual angle...Because sexual desires can be unnatural too. Just as you can't explain how a guy with a beautiful wife would be seduced by an ugly and dirty prostitute.
If something is telling you that you are homosexual , never agree with it.
If you find yourself struggling, then you need help.
Psychological counseling won't help...
Trying to rationalize it won't work either.
Cry to God to help you. Many who were trapped in homosexuality have been helped. Jesus is the way out.
STRUGGLES INDICATE YOU NEED HELP...
|Politics / Re: Channels TV Interview: Ortom Replies Garba Shehu, Says 'I Stand By My Statement' by derecho(m): 5:58pm On Aug 26|
After watching this interview, my respect for Gov.Ortom quadrupled.
It takes courage and selflessness to speak the truth.
I noticed the interviewers couldn't ask much questions because it was obvious Ortom was saying the truth.
I mean, it will take a heartless individual not to be moved by the ordeal of Benue people.
Imagine, They even prevented him from seeing Buhari.
One thing that humans easily forget is that NO MAN can boast of living till the next 60seconds.

However, as believers in Christ, do your part even if the other hasn't started.
God rewards obedience and will definitely deal with the other party.
Bible aside, it's easier to win a man with your submission than him winning you over with his love. Love no be beans o.
Hope you know the woman isn't exempted from loving the husband too? The Love demanded from the man is at the level of Christ for the Church. Not all those romeo and Juliet ting

Employers should learn to value budding developers and stop acting like everything depends on them.
An amiable and smart employer can easily get those codes and more from the guy.
One thing you forgot to add to why jobs are "surplus" abroad is that they value you before your services.

Technology or not, you cannot wipe out Israel. I'm sure you know that Israel won't be saved because of their technology?
|Foreign Affairs / Re: Israeli Military Shoots Down Drones With Laser Technology Mounted On Aircraft by derecho(m): 4:07pm On Jun 25|
You think other countries don't have intelligent thinkers?You think they are not researching to wipe out Israel?
Oga, it's not just book, determination, or research. There's an insight and a spiritual backing.
There is a spirit in man and the inspiration of the Almighty gives him understanding... Job 32:8-9
The spirit controls the physical bro.
Are we saying people shouldn't work or think? No.
But you must realize there are some solutions you can't get from school books or human experience. Many innovations don't start with piecing things together. The inventors have seen things that their peers can't see and considered impossible.
Even Those terrorists trying to islamize Nigeria don't just depend on their guns. Those terrorists would be defeated not because we have guns but There's a God who rules in the affairs of men.
What do you think would happen if Shekau , if he's still alive, wakes up one day mad and decides to detonate a bomb so that all his fellow jihadists would go and meet the promised 72 virgins? That of course is beyond technology.
Boko haram as it were, is a product of an Islamic ideology. For them, it's a spiritual duty.
Technology is a product of science. Science is simply organized knowledge. If your spiritman is sick, it'll affect your knowledge and technology. We have intelligent lunatics but are we safe with them?
Man is more of a spirit.. The earlier we get that, the better for all of us.
