When I Thought…

Deep-thought1

When I thought of going back, I remembered Lots wife.
When I thought of giving up, I remembered the woman with the issue of blood.
When I thought the pain was too much for me to bear, I remembered Job.
When I thought the insults were too grievous to accept, I remembered Jesus Christ.
When I thought the persecutions were beyond bearable for me, I remember the Apostle Paul.

When I thought the journey was too far for me to embark upon, I remembered the Prophet Moses.
When I thought I had reached my limit, I remembered that anything is possible.
When I thought that I was down and out, I remembered the glorious resurrection of Christ.
When I thought darkness had completely enveloped me, I remembered that I am the light of the world.

When I thought about my many troubles, I remembered the glory that should follow.
When I thought about my lost battles, I remembered that I am more than a conqueror.
When I thought I had nothing to my possession, I remembered that I am the Seed of Abraham.
When I thought that I was poor, I remembered that I have the power to make many rich.
When I thought my bank account was red, I remembered how Jesus fed five thousand.
When I thought I was sick, I remembered that the Healer lives in me.

And just when I thought I had all the answers, I realized there is still so much more.

Nigeria Police Reacts To “False” Report

Leave a comment


 

 

NPF

The Nigeria Police authorities have reacted to a report by some organizations which described it as “The Worst In the World”. In a press release by its Force Public Relations Officer, CSP Jimoh Moshood, the NPF stated that, ” Nigeria Police Force is the best in UN Peace Keeping Operations, Best in Africa, One of the Best in the World.” and therefore refuted the said report as “unempirical and absolute falsehood”.

The Inspector-General of Police, through its Force Spokesman, in a statement issued at the Force Headquarters on Friday 10th November 2017, assured the International Community and other stakeholders in international policing of its capabilities, integrity and core values in line with global best practices.

See the Press Release:

“Nigeria Police Force is the best in UN Peace Keeping Operations, Best in Africa, One of the Best in the World. The Force rejects the report as unempirical and absolute falsehood, should be disregarded and discountenanced.

The attention of the Nigeria Police Force has been drawn to The Cable News Online of today, 10th November, 2017 captioned “NIGERIA POLICE RATED WORST IN THE WORLD”, on the 2016 World Internal Security and Police Index (WISPI) credited to two (2) bodies, The International Police Association and the Institute for Economics and Peace. The report claimed to have measured the ability of the Police to address Internal Security Issues in 127 Countries in four (4) key areas of Capacity, Process, Legitimacy and Outcomes.

The Nigeria Police Force after a careful study of the report and the news items emanating from it, wishes to state categorically that the report is entirely misleading, a clear misrepresentation of facts and figures and essentially unempirical, considering the area of coverage of the report which was said to have been carried out in 2016 by the above mentioned associations.

IGPThe report did not take into cognisance the significant improvement in the areas of Capacity Building, Training and Re-training of the entire personnel of the Force as provided for by the current Federal Government of Nigeria and other Foreign and Local NGOs which has greatly improved the efficiency and service delivery of the personnel of the Force throughout the country.

It is pertinent to state that the instruments used to evaluate the performance of the Force vis-à-vis that of other countries is absolutely incorrect and grossly inadequate and therefore a plain distortion of facts and figures. The strength of about Three Hundred and Seventy Thousand (370,000) Police Personnel in the country stands at around One (1) Policeman to less than Six Hundred (600) people in a population estimates of One Hundred and Eighty Millions (180,000,000) Nigerians.

It is equally significant to state that the current recruitment of additional Ten Thousand (10,000) Police Personnel into the Force by the Federal Government of Nigeria and the request by the Inspector General of Police to Government for approval of the recruitment of Thirty One Thousand (31,000) Police Personnel yearly for a period of 5years will definitely increase the strength of the Force to meet up with the UN ratio of One (1) Policeman to Four Hundred (400) citizens.

Furthermore, in the UN Peace Keeping System, the Nigeria Police Force is rated as the best in UN Peace keeping operations in the world. This clearly shows that the Nigeria Police Force is not and cannot be the worst in the world under any known scientific yardstick or measuring instrument.

Currently, the Nigeria Police Force is one of the only two African Delegates representing the whole of Africa continent on the executive committee of Interpol, a position the Force attained based on high performance, merit and sustained good track records.

IGP 2For avoidance of doubt, since the inception of the present Police administration in July 2016, the Inspector General of Police, IGP Ibrahim K. Idris NPM, mni, he has introduced and implemented diverse internal reforms aimed at improving capacity building and efficient service delivery of the personnel of the Force, which is yielding positive results in the standardization of the capability of the Nigeria Police Force to deal with violent crimes and terrorism throughout the country. The establishment and take-off of a world class Terrorism Investigation Bureau for the Force with state-of-the-art equipment and technical support from foreign partners has greatly improved the capacity of the Force to deal with threats posed to internal security in this regard.

However, it must be pointed out that the Nigeria Police Force sees the report as a clear demonstration of mischief, ignorance and calculated attempt to distort the feat being recorded by the Force in ensuring adequate security and safety of Nigerians. Nowhere in the report were references made to either the improved capacity or achievements recorded by the Nigeria Police Force across the country in the recent time, the Force therefore implores all Nigerians and international community to disregard the report as unfounded and misleading.

The renewed determination of the Force to adhere to Internal Police Reforms for greater efficiency in service delivery and conform to standard principles, building trust and confidence in the citizenry for their safety remain unequivocal and unwavering.”

HOW BANK DEBTS DEVASTATE US

Leave a comment


Bank debts
The global Mutual Aid Community is building a just world. It’s important for everyone to have enough funds to live a happy life. Banks however have a different goal which is to drive each person into a loan trap and turn them into a perennial debtor. They lure people by allegedly super-favorable loan terms, and gullible citizens fall for their tricks and get themselves into a mess.
Why You Can’t Take Loans

Assume you’ve fallen for favorable terms and bought a car on credit. You will pay another 30% on top of the indicated price at best. If the car costs $50,000, you’ll buy it for $65,000 (often terms are much worse).

In a couple of months you suddenly happen to have health issues — you need money for the treatment. The bank will not care about that — each month you have to pay back your loan, you have no right of rescission. Selling the car won’t help you: it will become a lot cheaper as a second hand vehicle, and you will be left with a debt and without a car.

 

5 Steps of Bank Reprisal

  • Preliminary Action. Even if you haven’t fallen into arrears yet, a couple of days before the payment date the bank often checks in with you. At this step they won’t fine you or ruin your credit record. It’s just a simple reminder. This psychological move is the first “wake-up call”.

 

  • Soft Action. If you fall into arrears, in 2 or 3 months the bank will remind you of the debt more often: they will call you and write messages, call your family and friends. Most loan agreements have a clause on late charges that banks happily resort to.

 

  • Hard Action. If you don’t pay, the bank will hire debt collectors — debt chase-up professionals. The late fee is still charged, and you and your family get 10 times more calls. They exert strong moral coercion on you while the late fee continues to grow. You now owe $80,000 to the bank instead of $65,000.

Bank Loans - Thank you, I shall always be in your debt.

  • Court Action.While the court examines the case, late fees are not charged, but you’ll have to pay all legal costs if you lose the case. You’ll have to pay a solicitor to prevent the bank from increasing your date though court action. In 95 % of the cases debtors lose their cases in court.

 

  • Final Action.If you don’t repay the loan after the court makes the judgement, your debt is passed on to court marshals. They come to your house and distrain your property worth the same amount as the debt which has risen to $100,000 in the process.

 

Thus, the long-awaited car has turned into loss of property, deterioration of relations with your family because of the debt collectors’ intrusiveness and wrecked nerves. Don’t be swayed by allegedly favorable credit terms. If you’ve already taken a loan, pay it back as soon as possible by any means necessary to avoid compounding matters.

Don’t deal with banks, join the Global Mutual Aid Community today and earn a high monthly return. The Mutual Aid Community is everyone’s chance at financial freedom, having enough money for a car, a new house, running a business, tackling with health issues and other needs.

10 SIMPLE TIPS TO ACHIEVE FINANCIAL SUCCESS

Leave a comment


Mutual Aid Community
Shadow accounts, tax evasion, obscure origin of capital are a usual thing for 80 % of the rich. But MMM, the Mutual Aid Community, does not advocate for deceit — one can make a fortune by fair means. We’ve made up a list of 10 tips to help you achieve financial success.
  • Don’t be afraid of anything. Fear makes you incapable of acting decisively. People live in poverty until their old age because they’re afraid of making big decisions. “You must not be afraid of anything! Neither in this life, nor in the afterlife. Fear humiliates you. You lose yourself,” Sergey Mavrodi.
  • Don’t be stressed if you get fired. Stability is not inherent to any employment: companies go bankrupt and close down, etc. As a result, millions are left jobless. Don’t be afraid and don’t lose heart — regard this as a chance to change your life.
  • Start a business. One’s own business will produce the biggest profit, so start a company. Study the market, come up with ideas and save up for a startup capital.
  • Make sure you have multiple sources of income. Don’t be limited to a single source of income. Try to have at least 2 areas that generate income, for example, a business and the MMM Community.
  • Make a difference
  • Make your money work for you. Don’t just put it on a shelf. It must be saved up for a bigger goal that will increase your income in the future or it must be invested. MMM offers everyone a stable income — it’s much more profitable than investing in a bank or shares.
  • Use the Internet wisely. You can make good money and open up new opportunities on the Internet. The web holds lots of useful and interesting things. Moreover, you can start a business or find a job on the Internet — for example, you can learn how to make web-sites, add content, etc.
  • Maximize your time. If you can do something in 2 hours, don’t waste your whole day on it. Time is the most precious resource.
  • Don’t be lazy. Lying in until lunch time, watching soap operas instead of doing work and gossiping in the evening is not something successful people do.
  • Put some money aside even when it’s hard. Even in a dire financial situation, put some money aside from each source of income
  • Look for like-minded people. People that are around us affect us a lot. Hang out more with other MMM participants who also strive to create a just world. It will help you stay positive and believe in yourself.

Stick to these rules and you will achieve financial success. The MMM Community will be happy to help you with this!

7 Ways to Emancipate Yourself from Mental Slavery

Leave a comment


On August 1, Emancipation Day was celebrated throughout the Caribbean. This commemorates 1 August 1838 when full freedom was granted to all slaves in the British owned colonies. Between 1662 and 1807 Britain shipped 3.1 million Africans across the Atlantic Ocean in the Transatlantic Slave Trade. Africans were forcibly brought to the Caribbean and sold as slaves to work on plantations. Despite being held captive many slaves resisted their enslavement and refused to be broken.

Although slavery is no longer tolerated, many of us are held captive by limitations placed on us by ourselves or others. My whole life I’ve been told “You can’t.”

“The biggest enemy you have to deal with is yourself. If there’s no enemy within, then the enemy outside can do us no harm.” ~ Les Brown.

These limitations inevitably lead to many of us suffering from the “Baby Elephant syndrome.” The story is told how elephants are trained. When an elephant living in captivity and is still a baby, it is tied to a tree with a chain or  rope nightly. The baby elephant tries with all its might to break the rope but it isn’t strong enough to do so.  It tries and fails many times until realizing its efforts are futile, it finally gives up and stops attempting for the rest of its life.

Later, when the elephant is fully grown, it can be tied to a small tree with a thin rope and could easily free itself by breaking the rope or uprooting the tree  but because its mind has been conditioned by its past experiences, it doesn’t even make the slightest attempt to break free. This powerful animal has confined its present abilities by the limitations of past experiences hence, the “Baby Elephant Syndrome.”

Human beings are similar to the elephant except for one thing, we can choose not to accept the false boundaries created by others or the past.

 ‘ The mind is a powerful force. It can enslave us or empower us. It can plunge us into the depths of misery or take us to the heights of ecstasy. Learn to use is wisely.” ~David Cuschieri

Here are my 7 tips to break the chains that are holding you captive.

 1. Believe in yourself. You have to believe in yourself ultimately. Always Think big and Dream big. Focus on your strengths and work on developing your shortfalls. Don’t compare yourself to others and don’t let circumstances dictate what you are capable of achieving.

“Believe in yourself and there will come a day when others will have no choice but to believe with you.” ~ Cynthia Kersey

2. Work hard. Do what you can do. Don’t waste time feeling sorry for yourself. Take responsibility for where you are. Stop feeling like you’re owed. In life, there are no handouts. If you want something, you owe it to yourself to go out and get it. Nothing worth having comes easy.

“Determination and perseverance move the world; thinking that others will do it for you is a sure way to fail.” ~Marva Collins

3. Be Positive. Turn negatives into positives and make it a growing experiencing. Don’t dwell on others opinions of you or take things personally.  Don’t blame and harbour toxic emotions. It will only hold you back. Let it add fuel to the fire. Envision the future and maintain your focus.

 “As I walked out the door toward the gate that would lead to my freedom. I knewif I didn’t leave my bitterness and hatred behind, I’d still be in prison.” ~Nelson Mandela

4. Never give up. Be confident. Ask for what you want. Purpose in your heart that you will keep fighting for your dreams. How many times will you try before you decide to give up? This is your dream and you have to protect it. I try every door until I have exhausted all options and yet I don’t give up. Once there is a will, there is always way and I am determined to find it!

“You’ve only got three choices in life: Give up, give in, or give it all you’ve got. ~Unknown.

5. Be Patient For everything there is a time and season. The waiting period can be the most difficult but it’s important to not let doubt and fear creep in.

”No matter how great the talent or efforts, some things just take time. “You can’t produce a baby in one month by getting nine women pregnant” ~Warren Buffett

6. Have a strong support network. You can’t do it alone. There are days when it becomes too much for you. You may need a little help to get back up.

“Surround yourself with the dreamers and the doers, the believers and thinkers, but most of all, surround yourself with those who see the greatness within you.” ~Edmund Lee

 7. Have faith that things will work out. Some things are out of your control. I trust that God will take me through those difficult moments and this gives me peace even when things don’t go my way.

“Faith is like the radar that sees through the fog” ~Corrie Ten Boom

Additionally, as my grandmother would always say, “Make books your friends!” It opens your mind to new possibilities and helps you learn from the experience of others.

 The saddest state a person can reach is mental slavery. They have already given up. Everyday I counsel individuals and I wish I could make them believe in themselves, but I can’t. They will have to remove the shackles for themselves. This is your life! Don’t let anyone else write your story. Take back the pen and make a great ending!

“None can destroy iron but its own rust can. Likewise, none can destroy a person, but his own mindset can” ~Ratan Tata.

2016: Our Year of Spreading

Leave a comment


A SPECIAL MESSAGE DURING THE NEW YEAR EVE SERVICE WITH PASTOR CHRIS:

God’s Word is so important to us. We live by his Word. His Word gives us direction. Have value for the Word. The Lord can speak to you for every day. Live by the Word. His word sets us on course what to do for a particular period. What He wants to do is to feed us with courage and purpose.

Genesis 28:14 “And thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south: and in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed.”

To burst forth. Spreading in all directions. Spread abroad: Powerful multiplication and spreading in all directions.

Genesis 30:43 “And And the man increased exceedingly, and had much cattle, and maidservants, and menservants, and camels, and asses.”

Genesis 26:1-12 “And there was a famine in the land, beside the first famine that was in the days of Abraham. And Isaac went unto Abimelech king of the Philistines unto Gerar. And the Lord appeared unto him, and said, Go not down into Egypt; dwell in the land which I shall tell thee of: Sojourn in this land, and I will be with thee, and will bless thee; for unto thee, and unto thy seed, I will give all these countries, and I will perform the oath which I sware unto Abraham thy father; And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed…”

Stay where God tells you, not where everyone else is going.

Genesis Verses 12 and 13: “…Until he became very great.”

2 Chronicles 26:15 “And he made in Jerusalem engines, invented by cunning men, to be on the towers and upon the bulwarks, to shoot arrows and great stones withal. And his name spread far abroad; for he was marvelously helped, till he was strong.”

Matthew 13:33 “Another parable spake he unto them; The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.”

This scripture is controversial but there’s no need because it’s really simple. Leaven is used for sin. They say its false doctrine getting to the church. The kingdom is like unto leaven flour for bread that rises when the leaven gets into the dough. You can’t stop it. Unstoppable extension. Why did Jesus use it?

Leviticus 2:11-12 “No meat offering, which ye shall bring unto the Lord, shall be made with leaven: for ye shall burn no leaven, nor any honey, in any offering of the Lord made by fire. As for the oblation of the first fruits, ye shall offer them unto the Lord: but they shall not be burnt on the altar for a sweet savour.”

Leviticus 23:17 “Ye shall bring out of your habitations two wave loaves of two tenth deals: they shall be of fine flour; they shall be baken with leaven; they are the first fruits unto the Lord.”

The church is not a burnt offering but a first fruit. Jesus Christ is the first fruit and the church is a first fruit. It’s of resurrection. That’s where we belong.

We are spreading and rising, you can’t stop us.

2016 IS THE YEAR OF SPREADING.

THERE ARE 3 THINGS TO NOTE:

1. Spreading of our message and ministry. Unstoppable, like that dough. No matter where you start, your spreading can’t be stopped. It doesn’t matter how small the place you start with is, your spreading, expansion and increase cannot be stopped.

Acts 5:28; The Apostles filled Jerusalem with their doctrine. We will fill every nation with our doctrine.

2. Unstoppable increase in all directions. That grace is being ministered into your spirit. Nothing stops your growth. Mandate to grow. I’m licensed to grow. It can’t but grow. I’m commanded to grow. Spreading in all directions. We have an unstoppable increase in all directions. You are receiving that increased grace. Nothing stops your increase and growth. I have the license to grow. I’m commanded to grow, increase, expand extend, and spread. I’m spreading in all directions.

3. The growth and dominion of the Word in me and my circumstances.

Acts 19:20 “So mightily grew the word of God and prevailed”, in my body, mind and body. Nothing can stand the Word. The growth and dominion of the word in you and all your circumstances. The Word of God prevails in my body soul and spirit. The word will push out and prevail over any pain in your body. The word will spread to my soul and body.

Our fame will spread abroad!

We have just come from a Year of Triumph, what do you think will follow? Spreading!
God said, “I’ll put your fear in all the nations of the world.” The demons are in trouble. Our spreading shall be with ease! No one can touch us. Spreading through my being. It will spread to my spirit, soul and body.

Learn to celebrate the Word of God in your life. Spreading everywhere with ease.

I’m spreading everywhere! It’s my Year of Spreading! Not by my effort but by the Holy Ghost! I’ve got the blessings in me! There are angels sent by God to work for and with me! The Gospel is taking dominion in the nations!

PASTOR’S ADMONITION:

Halleluiah! Halleluiah!!

Your light is shinning brightly, your light is shinning brightly, I said your light is shinning brightly; because the Holy Ghost is upon your life. He leads you in the path of righteousness for His Name sake.

Have no worries, entertain no worries, entertain no cares, have no fears, permit no fears. The Lord is asking me to tell you: permit no fears, permit no fears.

It’s the Hands of God that lifts and when He lifts you, nothing can take you down. Wisdom is granted you, wisdom for direction is granted you, wisdom is granted you by the Holy Ghost that dwelleth in You, wisdom is granted you. Increase wisdom of the anointing is upon you, are you receiving? It’s your year of SPREADING, it’s your year of SPREADING. When you put Him first this year, when you put the Lord first; put Him first, put Him first in everything. Delight yourself In the Lord this year. Halleluiah! Delight yourself in the Lord this year. No weapon fashion against you shall prosper, you are bless.

All over the world, wherever you are right now, I minister this blessings unto you, in the Name of Jesus. You’ll SPREAD to the north, you will spread to the south, you’ll spread to the east and to the west; you will spread every where. The Glory of God is in your life, the Lord magnify you from this day, from this hour, from this moment. Halleluiah! Halleluiah!! Halleluiah!!! The Lord has lifted you. Delight yourself in the Lord this year. Put the Lord first in everything you do.

HAPPY NEW YEAR.

WELCOME TO 2016 — THE YEAR OF SPREADING!!!
