Mr. Okafor (not real name) and Mrs. Elizabeth (not real name) were happily married couples, and they were fervent Christians serving the LORD in a ministry known as Zion Peoples Assembly Church (not real name), located in a remote village in the far East (not real location). The name of the pastor was Alfred (not real name).

Mr & Mrs Elizabeth Okafor had a wonderful marriage with 3 children (assumption) and they were very committed to serving the LORD with all their hearts. However, there was a time that some weakness was noticed in the man.

As times goes on, the man exhausted all his strength in fighting this weakness but never told his wife about it. Therefore Satan took advantage of this weakness and tempted the man into adultery, and he felled.

Although he knew that this was not right as a Christian but he still succumbed altogether. But knowing that he had sinned against God and against his wife, as a true believer in Christ he decided to open up to his wife after praying to God for forgiveness.

So, he came to his wife and knelt down and confessed the adultery, asking the wife to please forgive him. The wife accepted by forgiving her husband, (though events later proved that she never forgave him at all). They then continued their marriage and service to God in their local church, and the matter buried between them only.

In the process of time, a minor issue arose between them which was centered on money. Mrs Elizabeth had asked her husband some money for some few things, but because he wasn't buoyant at the time, he couldn't meet his wife's demand in that material time, and the wife became angry for whatever reason known to her. And she took another step.

For failure to provide her the money and the man who was attending to a critical situation at the time that took him from home, the wife concluded that her husband has gone again into sleeping with other women outside, though this was a pure lie. She then went and reported her husband to their pastor accusing him of adultery. Don't forget that this matter has been settled and closed between both of them a long time ago, but she kept it in her heart hence my earlier submission that she didn't actually forgave her husband in the first place.

Armed with the statement of Mrs Elizabeth who accused her husband of adultery, Pastor Alfred summarily invited Mr. Okafor during workers meeting one Sunday morning, and suspended him from any duty or responsibility in the church till further notice.
Part of the punishment was that Mr. Okafor who was a worker in the church should be standing throughout the workers meetings every Sunday, as well as setting a special seat for him in the extreme back of the church. He must as a matter of faithfulness never missed any church service no matter the case.

So, Mr. Okafor started serving his punishment as spelled out by Pastor Alfred.

However after about 3 months that Mr. Okafor was placed under discipline by his pastor and seeing his faithfulness in the execution of his punishment, a member of the church decided to approach the pastor so as to free Mr. Okafor from his punishment. Meanwhile, the Area pastor of that Paris was never briefed by Pastor Alfred all this while. So he refused to listen to the member's plea and instead jumped his Area pastor and went straight to the Zonal pastor and reported the case, just because someone tried to intervene from the Parish. Don't forget that Mr. Okafor has already been placed on discipline for close to 3 at this time. Pastor Alfred thereafter decided that the special seat in which Mr. Okafor was given to be sitting in the church should be brought to the middle of the church whereby every parishioner will be seeing him there in every single church service. Pastor Alfred took this later decision saying that he want Mr. Okafor to be hardened, so that if he eventually became a pastor, he will not take any rubbish.

That is the end of the STORY.

Now, how would you have handled this matter if you were Pastor Alfred?

Use Bible references where necessary to make your decision if you were Pastor Alfred. You can as make your inputs without a bible reference too if you don't have any.

This post has nothing to do with assassinating the character and personality of Pastor Paul Rika, the Int’l Director of Holiness Revival Movement Worldwide (HOREMOW) in any way, but to draw out his ungodly manner in handling the case of Bro Michael Thomas Sambo, in relation to the divine encounter he received from God in 2003, that Pastor Paul Rika transcribed into a book, after listening to the recorded version of the revelation. This is neither a judgment either as some may conclude, but to as a matter of fact let people know some deep secrets that surrounds the story. Read with understanding and unbiased mind so as to get the message here with clarity. God bless.

TEXT: 1 Timothy 3:1 “This is a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work. 
2 A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach; 
3 Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous; 
4 One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity; 
5 (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?) 
6 Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil. 
7 Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil. 
8 Likewise must the deacons be grave, not doubletongued, not given to much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre; 
9 Holding the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience.”

The passage above was quoted to highlight what is expected of a true Christian and believer in CHRIST JESUS, whether ordained a pastor, deacon, elder or just an ordinary church member or a church worker and minister. However in the contest of this post, I am sorry to say that Pastor Paul Rika is guilty of what the Bible strongly spoke against in the scripture passages above, especially as it relates to greed and covetousness, hence the citation.

In dealing with the subject matter of this post, it is important to state the meaning of the two words I used in the heading – greed and covetousness. According to the WordWeb dictionary,
GREED is an ‘Excessive desire to acquire or possess more (especially more material wealth) than one needs or deserves’. It is also termed a ‘Reprehensible acquisitiveness; insatiable desire for wealth (personified as one of the deadly sins)’.
COVETOUSNESS refers to ‘An envious eagerness to possess something’. It means ‘Extreme greed for material wealth’. It also connotes the same meaning as greed hence termed a ‘Reprehensible acquisitiveness; insatiable desire for wealth (personified as one of the deadly sins)’.

 This post centres on the divine encounter of Bro Michael Thomas Sambo, and how Pastor Paul Rika sold him out of his own inheritance, which he had during an Easter Retreat of Deeper Life Bible Church in Taraba State, in the year 2003. This encounter was the starting point by which Bro Michael Thomas Sambo became a public figure, as churches and ministries started inviting him for ministrations, and it has continued till date to the glory of God. The encounter has indeed opened people’s eyes and understanding on what true Christianity entails, and the knowledge of the unchanging word of God in regards to holiness and righteous living for making it to heaven. And till date, the testimony is still doing wonders in convicting sinners of their sins thereby producing true repentance from sin whenever they come across it either in CDs, book or by listening directly to Bro Michael Thomas Sambo in crusades and conferences wherever he is invited. This testimony has been winning souls for JESUS CHRIST, which the devil has been angry about hence all the troubles Bro Michael has suffered in the process, including the kidnapping orchestrated by the demonic Boko Haram terrorists to terminate his life, but God delivered him safe and sound from their enclave through the mighty hands of Angel Michael. This testimony by the grace of God will continue to win souls until CHRIST returns in the rapture. Amen.

The uniqueness of this divine encounter of Bro Michael Thomas Sambo also attracted the person of Pastor Paul Rika, Int’l Director, Holiness Revival Movement Worldwide (HOREMOW), who was a serving pastor in Deeper Life Church at the time, as a State Overseer. Since Bro Michael was a young Deeper Lifer himself at the time (Campus Youth Leader in University of Maiduguri), it was not difficult for the duo to bond together and friendship kicked off by reason of the encounter which was in a tape record. Meanwhile, prior to this encounter of Bro Michael Thomas Sambo, Pastor Paul Rika never knew anybody like Michael Sambo though they were in the same ministryand from the same Taraba State as a matter of fact. This encounter of Bro Michael was therefore the foundation that brought them together, though they have since parted ways, with each of them facing their individual ministry.

Having listened to the encounter of Bro Michael Thomas Sambo in a recorded tape, Pastor Paul Rika came to Bro Michael to plant the idea of penning the revelation into a book, and with the consent of the visioneer (Michael Thomas Sambo), the book ‘DIVINE REVELATION OF GOD’S HOLINESS AND JUUDGMENT’ By Michael Thomas Sambo, was written and published by Pastor Paul Rika. Don’t forget that Deeper Life Church don’t align with anything revelation or divine encounter, as the church is known as a ‘word’ ministry. So, how will this encounter become a blessing for people around the world, since Deeper Life church don’t accept such a thing, seeing that God decided to use a Deeper Life member to witness this supernatural experience? This was how Pastor Paul Rika took into craftiness the publishing of Michael’s divine encounter into a book and hiding the authorship in Michael Thomas Sambo. So Pastor Paul Rika transcribed the encounter into a book word to word by listening to the audio version, when he has gotten the consent of the visioneer to doing so.

Knowing that the book was going to become a direct confrontation with the leadership of the Deeper Life Church, Pastor Paul Rika who was a State overseer never wanted the authorities of Deeper Life church to know he was the brain behind the book, and then cunningly used Michael Thomas Sambo as the author of the book. This action he devised was to wade off any disciplinary action that might be taken against him by the authorities of the church, but in reality he was playing smart in order to outsmart Michael Thomas Sambo as events later unfolded. So the duo became ally and in process of time, Pasor Paul Rika pulled another smart move to register his greed and somehow took over the ownership of the divine encounter from the visioneer, Brother Michael Thomas Sambo. Here, Pastor Paul Rika played on the innocence of Michael Thomas Sambo, who was only a youth and misled him because Michael never read any personal meaning to all that was happening, but was seeing it as means of propagating the work of the LORD, but never knew Pastor Rika was having a hidden agenda and ulterior motives. Therefore, Ephesians 4:14 aptly played out here. “That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive.” Indeed, Pastor Paul Rika deceived Michael Thomas Sambo, with his cunning craftiness by putting the revelation into a book ahead of the visioneer.

As the book was selling fast with testimonies coming from every quarter from those who genuinely repented after reading the book, Pastor Paul Rika saw an opportunity to make money from the book. His concern was not really about what the book was doing in people’s lives, but on the profit to be earned from more sales of the book. In process of time, he invited Bro Michael Thomas Sambo to sign off every right whatsoever to the book with the help of a lawyer. However Michael Thomas Sambo never realised that Pastor Paul Rika has tricked him in signing the document, until events began to unfold later with a clearer picture of the hidden agenda of Paul Rika. He then discovered that Paul Rika has behaved just like Jacob in Genesis 25:31 when he told Esau his elder brother “Sell me this day thy birthright”. Pastor Paul Rika used a lawyer to take possession of Michael’s own divine revelation after striping him off from every right to the book which he bought with Michael’s signature, even though Michael never knew that Pastor Rika was buying his own birthright with that signature free of charge. This move by Pastor Rika was well calculated as he already bears in his mind that himself and Michael Sambo won’t continue in future in the same ministry (HOREMOW). The heart of man is indeed very deceitful above all things and desperately wicked, nobody except God alone can know it Jeremiah 17:9. This is more so as the ministry, Holiness Revival Movement Worldwide actually came into existence by the revelation of Michael Thomas Sambo. This is an incontestable fact.

As Michael Thomas Sambo continued his education in the University of Maiduguri, he was requesting for copies of the book and remits every single money realised from the sales of the books to the publisher after selling. At a time, he requested for six hundred copies from the publisher for sales in Maiduguri, but instead of the six hundred copies he requested, the publisher sent him nine hundred copies. Discovering that this might have been an error with the additional three hundred copies outside what he requested for, he called the publisher to draw his attention to the error. However upon calling the publisher, instead of receiving a straight forward answer, he was rather directed to call Pastor Paul Rika (who has cunningly taken over the ownership of the book) in respect of the extra three hundred copies. He obliged and called Pastor Paul Rika as directed by the publisher.
In his response, Pastor Rika told Michael Sambo that the extra three hundred copies of the books sent to him was for his upkeep in the school as a student, since he wasn’t working and will be needing money for some things in the school from time to time. He gave those three hundred copies of the book to Michael Sambo to support his educational pursuit and that was how Michael Sambo saw it, but not knowing that Pastor Paul Rika has sold him off completely out of his own personal divine revelation which Pastor Rika only transcribed into a book. Just like Judas Iscariot, who sold his master for 30 pieces of silver Matthew 26:15, Pastor Paul Rika greedily sold Michael Thomas Sambo out of his own inheritance with a mere three hundred copies of the book he only transcribed.

From the foregoing therefore, it is very evident that Pastor Paul Rika, the Int’l Director of HOREMOW is tricky, greedy and covetous. (I will throw some light in this regard as it concerns the DIVINE REVELATION OF GOD’S HOLINESS AND JUDGMENT book later). When it became apparently cleared that Paul Rika has made up his mind to deny Michael Sambo of his right to the book, he began to device anything to ensure that Michael Sambo is silenced from any relevance in HOREMOW. He started finding faults here and there against Michael Sambo, all in an attempt to ensure that the child of God is pushed out of HOREMOW. With flimsy excuses and lying visions and dreams by members of HOREMOW against Michael Sambo, Paul Rika saw a perfect plot to do away with Michael Thomas Sambo out of HOREMOW so that his dubious aim in laying claims of ownership to the book will materialise.  He started finding none existing faults in Michael Sambo and denied him of any ministerial opportunity in HOREMOW, and nailed his plots with a purported indefinite suspension of Michael Thomas Sambo from HOREMOW which he smartly tagged discipline, asking Michael to go and pray. Brethren, all these things were scripts already written by Paul Rika long ago in taking the ungodly ownership of the DIVINE REVELATION OF GOD’S HOLINESS AND JUDGMENT book, which he was desperately looking for a time to unleash. He just succeeded and he is boasting over it to the admiration of his followers, not minding that his actions are ungodly and unchristian.

When Michael Thomas Sambo discovered that his person was no longer welcomed in HOREMOW, despite the purported discipline he was supposedly placed, he humbled himself and never wanted to leave HOREMOW with any grudges even though his personality has been battered by Pastor Paul Rika. He tried to appease Pastor Paul Rika to no avail. Last of all, he went with two people to meet with Pastor Rika in order to fulfil the process of reconciliation as outlined by the Holy Bible Matthew 18:15-17. While kneeling down before him, Michael Sambo told Pastor Rika that he, Michael Sambo, accepted all the accusations and counter accusations levelled against him and asked for forgiveness from Paul Rika, not minding that they were false accusations. For 15 minutes, Michael Thomas Sambo was on his knees begging for forgiveness from Paul Rika. But Pastor Paul Rika never acknowledged his plea, neither utter any word in that 15 minutes that Michael Sambo was on his knees.  Michael Sambo thereafter stood up and left with his compatriots that went with him to appease Pastor Rika, and bid it farewell to HOMEMOW and all that concerns it. The child of God went to pray and God gave him his own non denomination ministry known as GLOBAL REVIVAL OF HOLINESS MINISTRY, based in Abuja, Nigeria. That was how Michael Thomas Sambo left HOREMOW in case you don’t know. And Pastor Rika finally rewrote the book he transcribed word to word from Michael Thomas Sambo divine revelation now bearing Pastor Paul Rika as the author, with a new title bearing ‘ESCAPING HELL FIRE AND ENTERING HEAVEN MADE SIMPLE’and making the divine revelation of Michael Sambo to appear as a partly featured article in the new book. It is well.
Bro Michael Thomas Sambo has left the matter for God to judge, and I commend his level of maturity in handling this matter since he became aware of the dubious and envious moves by Pastor Paul Rika.

To demonstrate that Pastor Paul Rika was envious of the performance of the divine revelation of Michael Sambo in the lives of believers that came to know JESUS CHRIST as a result of reading the book that carried Michael Thomas Sambo as the author, he was no longer comfortable with the rising profile of Michael Sambo in HOREMOW, hence all the tricks he played to get him out by all course. This was further demonstrated by Paul Rika by using Michael Sambo as a cover from the prying eyes of the leadership of Deeper Life churchin the very beginning, by using Michael Sambo as the author of the book. By the way, who is actually the author? Did Paul Rika have any divine revelation in the first place? A man that is tricky cannot be said to be a child of God.

The greediness of Pastor Paul Rika in this matter was selling Michael Thomas Sambo out of his own inheritance with three hundred (300) copies of DIVINE REVELATION OF GOD’S HOLINESS AND JUDGMENT book, so that all the proceeds from the book can be his and his only. If not for the fact that the book was bringing more money to the vault of Pastor Rika, why was he desperate to ensure that Michael Thomas Sambo was silenced by all means possible in order to become a sole benefactor of the book, a matter he is an outsider? This is the approach of greedy people all over the world. They always want to be the only one to benefit even upon what doesn’t belong to them.

Pastor Paul Rika showed his covetous nature by trying hard to claim the ownership of the DIVINE REVELATION OF GOD’S HOLINESS AND JUDGMENT book though he knows that he was not actually the owner. By outsmarting Bro Michael Thomas Sambo in taking over the ownership of the book, Paul Rika was saying with such move that ‘how I wish I was the one that got the revelation’ which he puts into practice by renaming the book and changing the original author. God warned us never to covet our neighbour’s goods Exodus 20:17, but Pastor Paul Rika has failed to adhere. A covetous man will ever remained covetous no matter his supposedly level of anointing.

To bring this post into conclusion, why has it become very difficult for Pastor Paul Rika to transcribe the several supposedly divine encounter of his wife, prophetess Linda Paul Rika nee Ngaujah into a book? Does he require any legal consent from his wife before her revelations can be penned by her  own husband? Since he (Paul Rika) boasts and prides that his wife Linda is having fresh revelations every day (which are majorly fake anyway), why are these supposedly revelations not qualified for a book to be written by her husband, Pastor Paul Rika? If there were no hidden motives behind the taking over of the book, why did Paul Rika engaged in demonising Michael Sambo and painting him in bad light before the public? In all, it is comfortable to declare that Paul Rika is both greedy of filthy lucre and very cunning and covetous man.

May God be the judge over this matter.

Psalms 122:6 "Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee."

God is the God of peace as well as the Man of war. However peace is a fruit of the Spirit and it is commanded by God to us as a requirement for making heaven, hence the command on us to follow peace with all men and holiness Hebrews 12:14.

Peace is a virtue that all Nigerians as presently constituted must embrace. We must put aside our political, tribal, regional and religious differences for the attainment of peaceful coexistence as One indivisible Nigeria. We all must work for peace in Nigeria no matter who you are and what you represent in the present Nigerian state, if our continuous living together as One Nigeria must be maintained.

But if God willed that Nigeria must split into how many countries possible to satisfy the present agitations here and there, let's choose the path of peace in the actualization of the goals. Those currently fanning the embers of war in Nigeria today are enemies of peace, and I tell you, they will not be around to watch your carcass in the streets after pushing you to mindless war for their selfish egos.

Able bodied Nigerian youths, let's wise up at this critical times in our land. One thing you must continue never to forget is the fact that just as our selfish political elites do use the youths to win (buy) their elections and dumped them thereafter, so also these current promoters of violence will abandon you in your deaths after using you for their selfish interest, be you a Southern, Eastern or Northern youths. So, be wise and don't waste your future for those that think more of their cattle, position and money than you.

Now those senseless Northern youths that partook in Boko Haram terrorists carnage and wasted their lives in the process, putting their own people and region in the parts of death and destruction, are they still alive today? No. But where are their sponsors? They are living large in their various empire they used your foolishness to acquire while sending you to your untimely deaths. Their children and those they cared so much for are living life to the fullest outside the shores of Nigeria and you senseless youths are dying for their inhuman, evil, demonic and devilish cause.

Therefore pray for peace in Nigeria today. Remember, should war break out today by reason of our thirst for violent separation, your wish may never come to pass but certainly you and your loved ones will be in perpetual psychological trauma if you survived the outcome of your violent desires. War is not beautiful, and only those that never see war prays for war.

May God cause His abundant peace to reign over Nigeria in Jesus name. Amen.
Those that love peace will enjoy peace, and those that love war will see death.

God said "Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God" Matthew 5:9. Work for peace, and you shall be a true Christian child of God.

God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria. Amen

The Bitter End Of The Sweet Lie

The Bitter End Of The Sweet Lie

John 8:44 "Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it."

Lie is the most easiest and simplest sin to commit. Lie is also the most fastest sin to commit. Lie can be told by using another person to carry it out. It is so fascinating that both the young and old tell lies without looking back. In fact, lying is so sweet that it has become a medicine to some people, that without telling a lie daily, they will be feeling sick. However pleasant or pleasurable that lie may appear, you should know that you are the son and daughter of the devil if you are a liar. Anytime you tell a lie, know that you are finishing your accommodation of eternal destination in the bottomless pit to receive you. So lie is a great wickedness and those who loves telling lies will never escape its consequences. Revelation 21:8 "But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, AND ALL LIARS, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death."

People are happy telling lies today not minding the eternal consequences. Some carry certificates full of lies. From their age to the qualifications they wield around, it is all lies. Others lie over the telephone, radio and television broadcast. Some women lie to get money from their husbands, children lie to get money from their parents etc. Others even lie to set their childhood friends up because of one thing or the other. So disheartening is the fact that some has taken lying to become a professional career. They will polish your lie which will be almost impossible to detect for a fee. Do you know that immediately you tell a lie, you will quickly be looking for another lie to cover it up and in so doing, you sink deep and deep into the depths of the ocean of lying. Let us abhor lies, and all the flashing false enclave it may beam on you. God says that liars will not tarry in His presence. Psalm 101:7 "He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house: he that telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight." So, stop lying and all habits of telling lies now.

See a story.

John and Philips were very good friends, who grew up from the same village. As times goes on, both of them became very successful in their career. Later on John gave his life to Jesus Christ after getting healed from a sickness that nearly took his life as a result of much smoking and drinking which himself and Philips his friend do engaged in. He started to preach to his dear friend, Philips, that he should surrender his life to Jesus Christ too and be saved. But Philips took John for a joke and started mocking him, why should a successful pharmacist  like John should ever considered serving God through Jesus Christ. Despite the mockery, John never gave up on Philips his friend, he made it a point of duty to always preach to Philips everyday.

Therefore because John was consistent in his preaching of Jesus Christ to Philips his friend, Philips took an offence against John in his heart. He devised a way to eliminate John his friend since John was now irritating him with his endless gospel preaching. Unknown to John, Philips was no longer a friend but a foe, but they still remained friends openly.

One day, Philips thought within himself that the best way to eliminate John was to lie against him. And it so happened one night that some wicked people went and vandalised the only bore hole in their community, which was the only source of water they have, without anyone ever seeing them. John was not aware of this as he rushed out very early to his pharmacy as a result of the appointment he booked with someone yesterday. So the villagers discovered that their taps were not flowing, they went and checked the borehole and to their shock, it was vandalised over the night. They called all the community members up in an emergency meeting to ask who was responsible for the vandalism. Meanwhile John was far away in his pharmacy shop and he was the only one absent in the meeting.

All the people in that meeting including Philips, John's best friend denied knowledge of who may have tampered with their borehole. When there was no headway, the community leader told them he was going to arrest everyone of them and lock them up in the police cells. When Philips heard this, he smiled within himself that he will use the opportunity to nail John, who was disturbing him with his preaching. So he raised up his hands to say something. He told the gathering that John his friend was responsible for the vandalism, that it was as a result of the incident John rushed out to his pharmacy that morning. The whole community were shocked to hear it but due to the fact that it was his best friend that named him in the crime, they believed him and held their peace until John returned home.
However, they went and invited the police to arrest John on his arrival from his pharmacy. As  soon as John came back home that evening and without even any question, the youths pounced on him, beat him mercilessly with several injuries and then handed him over to the Police who locked him up even without questioning. John was very surprised at what has befallen him, though he didn't resist the assault.

He spent one week in the cell as the police maltreated him the more to accept responsibility for a crime him didn't committed, he refused and continue pleading that he was innocent. He also used his short stay in the cell to win two converts for Jesus Christ as they repented of their sins and accepted the Lordship of Jesus over their lives as John preached to them. Amen.

Meanwhile when Philips who lied against John saw what was done to John by the youths, and hearing how the police was beating John in the cell, he felt sorry for John and concluded that he was going to put an end to the matter. He then decided to go to the police station and report himself that he lied against John, with the intention that they should release John who was innocent and lock him up instead. This he was trying to do to right the wrong he committed against him by lying.

Unfortunately, Philips couldn't make it the police station as he died on his way to the hospital after involving in a ghastly motor accident. Before he died, he told the road safety officials that came to rescue him the story and asked them to please tell the police to set John free that he was the one that set him up because of his preaching. He also asked John to forgive him that he was actually coming to him to accept his Jesus Christ when he got involved in the accident. He asked John to please forgive him for lying against him.

So when the news of Philip's death came to John in the cell and the lie his best friend lied against him, he wept sore. John wished that if Philips hasn't died, he would have joined him to be going out for evangelism, but now, it was too late. His two friends he preached to consoled him. That was how John regained his freedom from the police cell, but his friend never accepted Jesus Christ as he died before doing so.

Dear reader, are you there a liar? Just like Philips, you may never have the opportunity to repent of your sins and tell those you lied against to forgive you. Should death knock on your doorstep now, which part of eternity will you find yourself, will it be in heaven or in hell? Remember, if you are a liar, a thief, a prostitute, embezzler, a forger of documents, a rapist, homosexual, lesbian, a witch, a smoker, a drunkard, committing adultery, idol worshipper, a religionists without Jesus Christ, friends, please repent because the end of those wickedness is death everlasting. Romans 6:23 says "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." Only Jesus Christ can save your soul today. Please accept Him now as your personal Lord and saviour, tomorrow might be too late.

If you want to give your life to Jesus Christ now, please pray this prayer with me from the bottom of your heart.

Lord Jesus, I, (mention your name), come to you today. I know I am a sinner and I have sinned against you. Please forgive me all my sins and save me with your blood. I know I am helpless. Help me from now to hate all the sins I have ever committed, and never to go back to them again. I accept you into my heart as my own Lord and personal saviour. Thank you O Lord for saving my soul in Jesus name I pray. Amen.

If you pray the prayer above, congratulations. I welcome you into the family of God. Do look for a bible believing church where truth is preached in its entirety and join them, so that you can learn and grow in the things of God. God bless you.

Let us pray.
Gracious and Everlasting Father, to you we call upon today. Help us your children to know and worship you in true holiness of the heart, body, soul and spirit. Make us acceptable in your sight according to your holy standards. We ask that you will help us not to become a hypocrite in the name of holiness. Forgive us our short comings, and make us ready for the soon return of Our Master, JESUS CHRIST. Thank you LORD for this day. Thank you for this message. Only your Name shall be glorified forevermore through JESUS CHRIST Our LORD we pray. Amen. Halleluia.

Text: Matthew 23:27 "Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness. 28 Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity."

Of a truth, holiness is an attribute of God Leviticus 11:44-45, whose name is holy 1 Chronicles 16:10, and dwells in a holy hill Psalm 3:4, served and worship by holy angels Revelation 14:10. The Holy God enjoins man to worship him by lifting up holy hands 1 Timothy 2:8, and to live peaceably among ourselves in holiness because none shall see Him without holiness Hebrews 12:14, whereby Apostle Peter warned us to be holy in all our conversation because the God that called us is a holy God 1 Peter 1:15-16.

In considering our text above, Our LORD JESUS CHRIST gave an insight into what a cover up holiness represents. A cover up holiness therefore is the holiness that mostly dwells on the outward appearance, with a conniving effect of diverting the attention of the public from the real personality behind the facial cover up through a holiness looks but overlaid with deadly poisons underneath. This cover up holiness is a pure manipulation in the body of CHRIST today which has turned a lot of people from serving the LORD Jesus Christ when the real personality behind the cover up holiness manifest. It is therefore not surprising when Jesus Christ our LORD aptly called them hypocrites.

Now, is it not surprising to you that people who ministered in the holy altars of God as choristers are having sexual relationship among themselves through boyfriend/girlfriend sinful relationships? This sin of sexual immorality thrives in the church today under the cover of holiness, as the general church will never suspect that the choirmaster and choirmistress are sin partners, the head usher and a member of the ushering department are sin partners, in fact that pastors are today the boyfriends of all the young ladies in their churches because daddy said come and see me. Who will ever know that such great wickedness is taking place under when holiness has been used to deceive people from seeing this rotteness! So it is very appalling.

Moreover, there are Christian brethren today especially among our sisters, who don't wear makeups, don't perm nor jerry curl their hair, no use of any form of jewelries, and wears long skirts and always cover their bodies with good covering clothes, but this holy appearance in the face doesn't stop them from being a backbiter, gossiper, liar, unforgiving, hatred, anger, and even a witch in some cases. There have been talks about fervent Christians who do say that anger is a part of them. This actions stated above and much more can never qualify anyone to be a true Christian, let alone a holy believer in Christ Jesus.

To be holy means exhibiting the true nature and character of God, which principally dwells in love. Holiness without love, tolerance, peaceful coexistence and care is pure witchcraft. Jesus said in John 13:34 "A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. 35 BY THIS SHALL ALL MEN KNOW THAT YE ARE MY DISCIPLES, IF YE HAVE LOVE ONE TO ANOTHER." Apostle John reaffirmed this position again in 1 John 4:20 "If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen? 21 And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also." We can see that there is no holiness without love, and you can't be holy and indulges in sin.

In conclusion, the LORD says in Joel 2:13 "AND REND YOUR HEART, AND NOT YOUR GARMENTS, and turn unto the LORD your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil." Once your heart has been regenerated, no evil thoughts or deeds will emanate from it again, and your holiness will be complete both in body, soul and spirit.

Remember, 1 Thessalonians 4:7 says "For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness." God bless you all.

John 10:10 "The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly."

In light of the above scripture, it is only the devil that has a mission to steal, kill and destroy, and then go on celebrating when he sees his victim dead. But Jesus Christ has a mission to give life even more abundantly, and today, every death sentence passed against you and your family by the enemy, backfire by the BLOOD of JESUS CHRIST now in JESUS name. Amen.

Events unfolding in the camps of Holiness Revival Movement Worldwide (HOREMOW) of late has traces of occultic utterances to manipulate people and thereby hold those who are loyal to the authorities over there captive, with a view to creating fear of death in their minds should they ever in their entire lifetime decides to leave HOREMOW for whatever reason. This mind capturing and controlling deception they usually put into play by celebrating the death of former HOREMOW members who died whether their death is attributed to sickness, affliction, accident or not, all that is important to the authorities in HOREMOW is that they died, with a claim that these people died as a result of leaving HOREMOW and as such they are in hell fire. This is a mind capturing devices with high stake in occultism. Don’t be deceived with what you see or hear from them, Satan can preach the Bible Matthew 4:5-6. Satan has even transformed himself an angel of light 2 Corinthians 11:14. So, it is not a new thing.

In Joshua 24:14, Joshua admonished the people that they should fear the LORD and serve Him in sincerity and truth. "Now therefore fear the LORD, and serve him in sincerity and in truth: and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the flood, and in Egypt; and serve ye the LORD." But in verse 15, Joshua told the people to serve any god they may choose if serving the Almighty GOD was a crime to them. He however said himself and his household will serve only the LIVING GOD all the days of their lives. "And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD." However in verse 16, the people sworn by saying God forbids that they should forsake the LIVING GOD, by going memory lane what the Almighty GOD has done for them in the past in the following verses. "And the people answered and said, God forbid that we should forsake the LORD, to serve other gods". This encounter between Joshua and the Israelites in relation to serving God didn't carry any pronouncement or curses or death sentence on anyone who may choose to serve another god outside the living God. But in HOREMOW, you are programmed to die by all means possible if you ever left them, hence it has strong occultic correlation.



Late Carlton Joshua was one of the early members of HOREMOW, who worked closely with Pastor Paul Rika. He was the media leader in HOREMOW until an incident happened around 2015 thereabouts. He died in February, 2017 after battling with sickness in Abuja.
He didn't actually left HOREMOW as the leadership is lying to the people about it, but was suspended indefinitely by Pastor Paul Rika, because he along with Pastor Ken Covenant asked for a permission to go and see their family after returning from crusades that took almost two weeks. Rather than grant them the permission they sorted for, they were summarily dismissed. Even at that Carlton never left HOREMOW but decided to leave the center stage in the media circle since he was suspended, and young men that are pure gossipers took over the media.
Today Carlton is late and the leadership of HOREMOW is boasting about it that he died as a result of leaving HOREMOW, and their members are believing this lies with all acceptance. It is a pity! Did you tell your members how you denied Carlton Joshua and others the permission they sorted from you to seeing their families? Did you tell your members how you suspended them thereby locking them out of HOREMOW? Carlton may have died and cannot dispute your lies, but Pastor Ken Covenant is very much alive, a staff of the University of Abuja. He can expose your lies if he so wish.
Now to hurt the dead the more, you told your members that his death was as a result of leaving HOREMOW. Somebody should fear God oooooo. It may be true anyway, who knows whether the sickness that killed Carlton was caused by HOREMOW and cast as a spell on him? Truthfully, only occultic people go after their former members to kill them so that their evil secrets won't be exposed. God is watching.


Late Sister Claire Atongo Andoun was based in Dublin, Ireland. She was the brain behind Virtuous Women in Christ, and a formidable element that brought HOREMOW to limelight in the social media around the world until things fell apart. Sister Claire died in May, 2017 in Lagos, Nigeria, after battling with sickness that was an attack from the pit of hell, barely one month and two weeks of her marriage to Evangelist Solomon Omikpa. Now that she is dead, the leadership of HOREMOW is once more celebrating that her death was due to the fact that she left HOREMOW. Anybody that died today who was once a member of HOREMOW died because they left, and that their destination is hell fire because they left HOREMOW the only way to their own heaven. Meanwhile no active HOREMOW member will ever die, all of them shall like Enoch will not be found even though it is not rapture. Did you tell your members how you pressured Claire to handover her own ministry to you? Was it not her refusal to oblige your advances and pressures you mounted against her to surrender ministry to you that made her to leave HOREMOW? Didn’t you and your prophetess called her testimony satanic and that God didn’t called her all because she stood her ground against your scheming? Now that she is dead, you are still hunting her. Ah! No wonder the bible says that the heart of man is DESPERATELY WICKED Jeremiah 17:9.
With the leadership celebrating the death of people who were once active members of HOREMOW, they have succeeded to further tie up their members with the fear of death and as such, leaving HOREMOW means DEATH and a straight ticket to hell fire. May the LORD GOD ALMIGHTY deliver the captives of the mighty today in JESUS NAME. AMEN.

When Lazarus died, Jesus groaned and wept because He loved him John 11:33-35. When Saul who hated David with passion died in battle as the news was broken to David, David never celebrated, he instead mourned him because he loved Saul despite all the atrocities of Saul towards him when he was alive 2 Samuel 1:11-12. When Absalom died, despite the horrible things he did against his father David, David never celebrated, he instead mourned him and even to the point of choosing to die for Absalom if it was possible 2 Samuel 18:33 – 19:1-4. So where is God in all the happenings around HOREMOW today as they will rather celebrate the death of people that left them? Even though these two people I mentioned above may have done the most wicked things against the leadership of HOREMOW while they were alive, should this become a reason for celebration? Is the life of every single individual on earth now in the hands of the leadership of HOREMOW to now determine who will die, or not die, who will make heaven and who will not, all because they left HOREMOW? May the LORD God Almighty have mercy on you people today in JESUS name, Amen.

Only in the occult kingdom will a former member be visited with death should they ever leave. This they do to seal up their secrets from exposure. If the leadership of your church or ministry celebrate the death of their former members, know it for sure that you are in an occultic gathering. Pray fervently for the Almighty God to destroy whatever you are caged with, and today, deliverance is coming your way in Jesus name. Amen

Therefore whether we live or die, let everyone know that it is only in the hands of God Romans 14:7. No mortal man no matter how highly placed he may be in the society or church has any power to determine your destiny. Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling before God Philippians 2:12, obey and serve Him with all diligence and heaven will be your ultimate end in Jesus name. Amen. So where, when, how and whichever way you die doesn't matter. What matter is that you make peace with God and make your ways right before Him, you will make Heaven by the grace of God just like the thief on cross Luke 23:40-43. Amen.

I pray, every tongue that shall decide to mention my name in the coven of witches and wizards by reason of this post, receive the judgment of God, and I command, let your tongue draw out of your mouth like dog in Jesus name. Amen.
Any demonic power and monitoring spirits that may be assigned a duty to monitor me, from the occult realm of the devil and his agents as regarding this post, I command, in the mighty name of Jesus Christ, die, die, die, die, die in Jesus name. Amen.
And whosoever man or woman, that will raise a judgment against me for standing on the part of truth by reason of this post, be disgrace by the power of the Holy Spirit and run mad in the streets except you repent in Jesus name. Amen.
I seal this message with the PRECIOUS BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST, and I pray, let it liberate anyone in the captivity of Satan being tied with the spirit of fear of death, be set free from your bondage in Jesus name. Amen.
Thank you gracious God for the grace to write this post. May your name alone be praised through Jesus Christ our LORD. AMEN.

Matthew 5:43 "Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.
44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust."

Many a times we humans tends to consider those that openly opposed or disagree with our views and thoughts as our enemies, without addressing the real cause of the actions of such a person and as such, we ignorantly abandoned the real enemy and be chasing after shadows. No matter how wicked a man may present himself or behaved towards you, such a person may never be your enemy in the real sense but a medium employed by your enemy to get at you. Cases of friends behaving as an enemy not well handled will ruin your chances of ever winning such a person to Christ because you've proved not accommodating and as a such, you lack the moral right to preach Christ to such a one.

In our text above, Jesus Christ didn't just instructed us to bless, do good and pray for those that despitefully used us, but to equally love our fellow human beings that we may termed enemies knowing that they are not fully responsible for their actions but the evil spirits that took possession of their being. This is why He emphatically talked about the unclean spirits that usually possess people in Luke 11:24-26. 24 "When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he saith, I will return unto my house whence I came out.  25 And when he cometh, he findeth it swept and garnished.  26 Then goeth he, and taketh to him seven other spirits more wicked than himself; and they enter in, and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first." We can see from here that it is unclean and evil spirits that are responsible for the actions of men that behaves towards us as enemies and we should learn to tackle the root cause of a matter than just scratching the surface whereas the strong man is doing wickedness underground.

In John 10:10a, the Bible said "The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy:" pointing out to us the tripartite desire and actions of the devil. In achieving this, the devil doesn't come personally to implement this wickedness but uses mediums and in this case, he will take possession of the human spirit with his evil spirit and the physical man will start to act the actions of the devil. Meanwhile we will then be attacking the physical man thereby leaving the devil to have a field day. Attacking the root causes of human problems will bring deliverance into effect. See how Jesus did it on Peter which we can learn from. Mark 8:33 "But when he had turned about and looked on his disciples, he rebuked Peter, saying, Get thee behind me, Satan: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but the things that be of men." Was Peter Satan? No. Did Satan manipulated Peter at the time? Yes. Hence Jesus had to rebuke Satan that was responsible for the manipulation at the time, though He was directly pointing to the physical Peter but addressing the evil spirit that possessed him that instant.

Having said that, if you keep on calling your fellow human beings your enemy, people that are being manipulated by Satan without tackling the satanic manipulation on them, how then can deliverance come their way? How then can you win them for Christ when love, the bond of Christianity is absent in you towards them? May the LORD JESUS CHRIST open your eyes today. Amen.
Therefore, you shall not die, but live to declare the wondrous works of the LORD Psalm 145:5.


Every power assigned from the kingdom of darkness to harm and kill you, I command you, DIE IN JESUS NAME. AMEN. Every satanic agent sent to distrupt our peace and joy, I decree, BE DISGRACE IN JESUS NAME. AMEN. Any human agent in collaboration with satanic agents assigned to monitor our welfare and wellbeing, so that they can inflict  sickness, pains and diseases on our bodies, I RETURN THOSE AFFLICTION UPON YOUR HEAD IN JESUS NAME. AMEN.
O LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, I ask that you shield us and our loved ones from every satanic manipulations in JESUS NAME. AMEN. I cover everyone of us with the PRECIOUS BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST. AMEN.
God bless you all.

Romans 2:28 "For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh:
29 But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God."

Many holiness believers in our days hides under the coverings and blankets of holiness to remove the public eyes from their atrocious activities. This they do with little or no effort at all because they are seen godly especially in their dressing and public presentations, to which many unsuspecting true godly believers has fallen victims when their true colours manifest in the secrets. I have always told people that true Christianity is the Christianity in secrets, when you are left alone without any prying eyes of mortal men. The Christian practice often displayed by majority of today's holiness believers is nothing but pure eyes service and deceit.

There's a particular denomination I won't mention here to drive home what people especially among the unbelievers holds as a yardstick for their refusal to accept JESUS Christ as their Lord and saviour, which unknowingly to these unbelievers is not an excuse before God why they chose not to serve God. Yes, serving God has nothing in attachment with another person's behavior or character but the behavior and character of a supposed believer in Christ goes a long way to either positively or negatively influence someone's decision for Christ hence we have to be very careful. What you do in secrets though it is hidden from man is visible before God, hence a story once said of a woman whom her husband's best friend was trying to commit adultery with. The man told the woman that the windows and doors has been locked, making it impossible for anyone to see them committing adultery. But the woman simply told the man: fine and good that you have locked the windows and doors and surely, no one will see us but, HAVE YOU ALSO CLOSED THE WINDOWS OF HEAVEN THAT GOD MAY NOT SEE US? The adulterous man was speechless and left the woman alone. You see, this adulterous acts would have go on unnoticed by any man but the man in question was quick to judge himself and let the woman go. Have you judge yourself as a supposed holiness believer in Christ?

This denomination is a true holiness church by all standards as their leader don't compromised the scriptures at all both in inward and outward holiness. He is a true practitioner of holiness which speaks volumes in his church. However some unbelievers has termed this church the home and harbor for witches and wizards particularly as it may affects the persons they know naturally somewhere. I have heard conversations such as 'the witches and wizards pursued from our village is now a member of denomination XYZ'. Even though the people making this kind of statement are not believers in Christ but they in turn have concluded that becoming a Christian is a forbidden thing by reason of those whom they knew as witches and wizards that are now in the church. To them a witch can't be saved because of their ignorance to the saving grace of Jesus Christ which is made possible by his blood.
Yes, the bible says thou shalt not suffer a witch to live Exodus 22:18, but the same bible says "For whosoever (witches, wizards, prostitutes, armed robbers, homosexuals, lesbians, kidnappers, liars etc) shall call on the name of Lord shall be saved Romans 10:13. Meaning whosoever that GENUINELY repent of their sin no matter what he/she is right now, or was in the past and accepted the Lordship of Jesus Christ over him/herself shall be saved, no argument about this because the bible says for by grace are ye saved through faith Ephesians 2:8. Okay.

Now, is it possible for a supposed holiness believer in Christ Jesus to be a witch, wizard, thief, extortioner, backbiter (tatafo), masturbator, homosexual etc? The answer is capital YES. This is because you will easily be carried away and be deceived with their outward (public) appearance that looks like a true Christian not knowing that inwardly they are ravenous wolves Matthew 7:15, hence God will judge the intents of the heart with his sharp sword Hebrews 4:12, not the outward appearance that is full of lies and covered with deceit. Therefore holiness is not by covering the hair, nor by wearing a long skirt that covers to the foot, nor by not wearing necklace and earrings. Holiness is love and love is God 1 John 4:8. Holiness is a complete totality of submitting the body, soul and spirit to Lord 1 Thessalonians 5:23, without any attachment of satanic properties to your body because it is the Lord's 1 Corinthians 6:20, Romans 12:1-2.

Dear brother and sister who hides under holiness to defraud one another, have you repent?
You were given the duty to book hotels for visitors in your holiness conference but you liased with the hotel manager to falsify the receipt so that you can do kill and divide with the extra money, have you repented and confessed to your people?
You that inflated pure water price so that you can get the extra money for yourself during your holiness conferences, have you repented and confessed to your people?
You that budgeted 'sundry expenses' and refused to return the remaining unspent money back to those that sent you but ended up using it for your personal gain because it was termed sundry, have you repented and confessed in your holiness conference?
You woman that sees the opportunity to feed your family with the food meant for your holiness conference, have you repented and confessed in your holiness conference?

No matter how much we try to hide our sins and wickedness from man with our holiness appearance, God is seeing far more than we can imagined and our sins will definitely finds us out Numbers 32:23. Many of us do more wicked things than what the unbelievers could think, yet nobody knows about this because we keep on deceiving them with our outward holiness talk and appearance while in public.
So, let no one deceive you Matthew 24:4. Whatever a man sow, so shall he also reap Galatians 6:7.

God bless you
