Release of your Spirit

A fool says in his heart -- not his head mind you -- that there is no God. The degree to which you are conscious of God in the heart is the same degree to which His presence can be experienced. It is also a strong determinant involved in the sure and steady growth in the express manifestation of the spirit of wisdom. An examination of the level of your God consciousness can be known by words uttered and thoughts perceived in response to daily activities and visible circumstances of life playing out in series. If such thoughts and words are produced out of a heart -- not head --- that is God conscious, the peace experienced would be beyond expression. Your thoughts and words would tend towards a perfect alignment to His thoughts and words. Progressively, the natural would respond. Circumstances, events and life would demonstrate what happened at the creation when same-life words declared out of a heart that is filled with same-life thoughts produced it execution. The negative converse is also valid. Death and Life are released in the dynamics of the tongue. The best that head-experience or knowledge can produce is an awareness and eloquence but heart knowledge produces encounters and indelible experiences that will forever remain fresh in remembrance. The road to the heart is the barrage of thoughts and words that the mind is fed with constantly. That explains why the falling in love experience (or realization as some may call it) appears incomprehensible to the intellect. Therefore, your heart would be where your treasure is. Let me launch you into something spectacular. Try feeding your mind (meditating) with thoughts and words of Jesus Christ as Lord and watch what happens. Hey, this is not religion because religion doesn't in anyway give a heart experience of God to be remembered without fear. This is what is called fellowship. The resultant effect of such thoughts and words is the experience of salvation or new birth. You can also feed yourself with the consciousness of God in you -- The Holy Spirit. The heart consciousness of your spirit would come alive and would produce immeasurable effects and manifestations by the power of God's spirit working in you. As a believer, the continuity of this on scriptures energizes and releases your spirit to act out (be a doer) the reality of the word which would ultimately produce a God consciousness in the heart making you wise and dead to the knowledge of the senses (flesh). Praying in the Spirit (tongues) would really do a lot of help in this practice. Actually, it's indispensable. To those who aren't 'filled' engage scriptures like Luke 11:13 and release yourself. P.S. : You could get into serious trouble if the knowledge of this write up is applied wrongly. Deception (or demon possession) is inevitable in such. Depend on the Spirit of truth to guide you into all realities. If you don't have a relationship with Jesus Christ engage the thoughts and words of 'Jesus as your Lord' and saviour in your heart through your mind (Romans 10:9). God bless you.

When things go wrong as they sometimes will, when the road you are trudging seems all uphil; when the funds are low and the debts are high and you want to smile but have to sigh; when care is pressing you down a bit- rest if you can but do not quit. Success is failure turned inside out; the silver tint of the clouds of doubt; and you can never tell how close you are, it may be near when it seems so far; so stick to the fight when you are hardest hit- its when things go wrong that YOU MUST NOT QUIT.
And oft when I'm tempted to turn from the track,
I think of my saviour, my mind wanders back
To the place where they nailed Him on Calvary's tree
I heard a voice saying, "I suffered for thee".
A place I remember where I was set free,
'Twas where I found pardon, a heaven to me
There Jesus spoke sweetly to my weary soul,
My sins were forgiven, He made my heart whole.
How great is His blessings the world cannot give,
I'm satisfied fully for Jesus to live;
Though friends may forsake me and trial arise,
I am trusting Jesus, His love never dies.
There is no one like Jesus can cheer me today.
His love and His kindness can ne'er fade away
In winter and summer, in sunshine and rain,
His love and affection are always the same.
Will you have this blessing that Jesus bestows,
A free full salvation from sin's bitter throes?
O come to the saviour, to Calvary flee,
The fountain is opened, is flowing for thee.

There's peace and contentment in serving the lord.
I love Him far better than in days of yore
I'll serve Him more truly than ever before,
I'll do as He bids me, whatever the cost,
I'll be a true soldier, I'll die at my post.

There is
Your Virginity is a Royalty
Guard it Jealously...
The world is changing... GOD'S STANDARD HASNT CHANGED...
Let all marriages be HONORABLE... with the BED UNDEFILED... heb 13:4
That u'v lost it intentionally or not... is not a licence to continue... God is merciful and He restores and make all things new... 2corin 5:17...
Leadership is one of the most misinterpreted and abused subject in the world today.

Personally, I think leadership is simply about effecting a change. And to change the world, you must first change yourself.

Hence, I say to you, any man who adds no value to self consistently and make no difference in the lives of others, is not fit for leadership.

Some people are leaders by values while many others are leaders by titles. I can boldly say from studies that Effectiveness and PRODUCTIVITY IN LEADERSHIP AND LIFE GENERAL is not a product of tittle and position........ But in your investment in CHARACTER AND POTENTIAL... @Pst bright.......#twc

true fact about relationship ( but nor be me talk am oh)


1. Living in the same room or sleeping on the same bed with a man who has not married you; (this is abomination).

3. Wearing the engagement ring of a man who doesn’t even know your parents or house; (You are wasting your time & blocking God's blessing).

4. Using your boyfriend’s picture as your profile picture on social network, thus blocking serious and potential suitors; (that is a serious /destiny mistake).

5. Giving your virginity or submitting yr crown to a man who has not married you. (You have wasted ur glorious destiny & lost your dignity in life)

6. Cooking food regularly and washing clothes for your boyfriend; (Slavery attitude: that's starting what you cannot finish even in marriage).

7. Disobeying your parents for the sake of a man you are dating. (It is Stupidity; Are you out of your mind? Y can't u convince them through GOD intervention ).

8. Giving sex to a man simply because he promised to marry you; (Haba! Na u be the oldest woman for this life? It is loss of yr soul & giving up on God)

9. Sending your Unclad pictures to your boyfriend or romantic postures with him either; (shame on you, that is what he will use against you anytime you said its over).

10. Why will a boyfriend beat you and you will still be saying that you can't do without him; (hmm, you need deliverance. This is not love. It is d foundation to a painful future).

11. When a man keep cheating on you and you still say that you can never quit him, (Hmm, you need prayers 'cos you've started digging ur grave)

Note: Don't be too desperate in d matter of relationship; as you are desperate to read other numbers and you did not notice that number (2) is missing above. Relationship is more than catching fun now.

Fear Leads to Worry
by Joyce Meyer - posted April 29, 2016

And who of you by worrying and being anxious can add one unit of measure (cubit) to his stature or to the span of his life?
—Matthew 6:27

Fear and worry are closely related. You might say fear is the parent of every kind of worry because every worry starts as a fear. The Bible clearly teaches that God’s children are not to worry. When we worry, we rotate our minds around and around a problem and come up with no answers. The more we do it, the more anxious we feel. When we worry, we actually torment ourselves with a type of thinking that produces no good fruit. Worry starts with our thoughts, but it affects our moods and even our physical bodies.

A person can worry so much that it makes them feel depressed and sad. Worry places stress on your entire system and causes a lot of physical ailments like headaches, tension in muscles, stomach problems, and many other things. It never helps, and it does not solve our problems.

We can worry about hundreds of different things, from what people think of us to what will happen to us as we age. How long will we be able to work? Who will take care of us when we get old? What happens if the stock market crashes? What if gas prices go up? What if I lose my job? Quite often, worry does not even have a basis or a nugget of truth to it. There is no known reason to even think about the things that worry and then frighten us.

The only answer is to stop worrying by placing your trust in God. He has the future all planned, and He knows the answer to everything. What we worry about frequently never happens anyway, and if it is going to happen, worrying won’t prevent it. God’s Word promises us that He will take care of us if we trust in Him.

Trust in Him: What are you worrying about? Cast your cares on Jesus. He wants you to trust Him with every thought, burden, and worry that you’re carrying because He’s fully capable of taking care of you (see 1 Peter 5:7).God bless

NIGERIA MUSIC! is it of good value to our youth

According to the online Etymological Dictionary, the term "music" is derived from "mid-13c., musike, from Old French musique (12c.) and directly from Latin musica "the art of music," also including poetry. The word derives from Greek word "mousike; which means, art of the Muses (muse is one of the nine goddesses in the greek, which encouraged poetry, music and other branches of art and literature). In classical Greece, the term "music" refers to any art in which the Muses presided, but especially music and lyric poetry. From the etymological meaning music is all about its lyrics; its words that is passed along.
According to the oxford advance learners' dictionary 6th edition music are sounds that are arranged in a way that is pleasant or exciting to listen to. The offline english Dictionary put it as any pleasing or interesting sound. Music are inspirational words compiled by someone with appiled beaten; so as to either entertain you,make you relax or make you think. Music is food to the soul. According to shakespare "If music be the soul of life, play it and give excess of it." Music is life. Music bring life and sweetness to the soul. Music uplift the soul.
Music is a tool for social engineering. Music is rhythm. It is the universal language of the soul. It appeals to the mind, thereby giving it a soothing relief from the hustles and bustles of life, stimulating thoughts, relaxes the brain.
There are different genres of music: rap, R&B, reggae, pop, rock, blues,jazz e.t.c. Different sounds/genres of music puts people in different mood.
Music can be either positive or negative; good or bad. What makes a music good or bad, is the message it passes along. Music can have a positive or negative effect through the message or words (that's what a music is all about). After listening to R&B What is your mind reading?  And the Pop; What message is it passing to the youth out there? I believe that's where the challenge, evil or good thought start From. The Nigeria kind is majorly of bad message, it is either SEX OR MONEY OR VIOLENCE. Very few sing of restoration and encouragement. Majority win the youth heart today and the media like radio and Television stations are not helping. Nigerian music today, has lost its social value. Nigerian music today, even though we still have some good music, has influenced the youths negatively. It has degenerated into platform for show of money, sex provoking and also a battle of words that now warrants the question: music or war? There are situation were different artistes insults one another in the name of music. Music which is and supposed to be an instrument for settling disputes, is today, now a tool of war. What a paradigm shift! Youths go into music today, not to add value to the society, but to among other things, make money, blaspheme others or to appear on screen and become famous. Its rare these days to get music that gives moral lessons in Nigeria. For majority of what we hear today, you can hardly draw meanings and messages.Like I said earlier, even though there are still some very few good music, a vast majority of Nigerian music adds no value to the human mind/society. According to proverb as a man thinks so he is. In other words your thought make you. You became what you think. Music is a tool that affect the mind. It affect you thought. With the regular mention of provocative and sex encouraging words, violence related words,as well as words relating to drinking alcohol and smoking Indian hemp. which can easily influence the minds of Nigerian youths negatively. Music is by fast encouraging gangstarisim and promoting premarital sex among Nigerian youths. Nowadays youths believe that premarital sex have no negative implication, they felt that premarital sex is a basic neccessity.  This are thought which Nigerian youths must do away with.
Music is a major force for negative thought, they can still be a force for positive thought. Some rare music preaches good conduct.
Nigeria music was awesome in earlier times. Artistes sang songs that passed special messages to people and create a therapeutic effect in the mind of the hearer. This days, the reverse is the case. what you hear upcoming and current musicians sing is really questionable. The only interest most music listeners now have is beats of a song, as long as the beat is interesting, people like the song no matter the rubbish the singer is singing. However, some artiste sing with meaning and pass awesome messages across to the people.
Nigerian music isn't all bad. some artistes sing songs that carry social importance.
In conclusion i would say that the value of Nigeria music on the youth depends on the message/words it passes along to them.

YOU CAN GET IT!!!  Some times we come to God in prayers to ask from Him, but yet we ask in fear. When we pray, we remember some irrelevant facts that are not true, but the devil uses these to stop us from getting what we can get.  Some of these things are : Fear that arises from our Past sins : the devil reminds you of your Past life and make you forget that if you are in Christ you are a new creature,old things are Past away but all things have become new 2 Corinthians 5:17 ,you don't need to bring your Past into your future, because when God looks at you He sees the blood of His only begotten son and not a man who was once a thief or a murderer. So, why do you allow the devil to feed you with lies that you can't get what you want from God. Secondly,  we always consider our family background when we ask from God. We tend to limit God based on our background. Eeh!!! Your background is not a factor to get what you want from God, but your FAITH. David was a Shepherd boy, yet he was made a King, Esther was an orphan, yet was made a queen, Gideon was the least in his family but brought deliverance to his nation,our Lord  Jesus was born in a Meager, yet He became our messiah. Therefore do not allow  your background to serve as a limitation to your request. Psalm 2:8 ; ask of me and I will give the nation for your inheritance,and the ends of the earth for your possession. Remember the woman in the bible that needed Jesus to heal her child with unclean spirit?  She wasn't qualified because she wasn't a child of the kingdom,  but she worshipped at Jesus' feet and got want she wanted at last due to humility and perseverance. YOU are at a greater advantage because you are joint  heir with  Christ and you belong to the kingdom,you don't need to eat the crumbs from the Lord, because you are very special.Don't limit Him because your background means nothing to Him, He knew you before you were formed, and always put your faith to work. REMEMBER,YOU CAN GET IT, BUT IF ONLY YOU WANT TO, THE BALL IS IN YOUR COURT!!!


Good evening team world changers

Change does not just happen, it is made to happen. Change is a responsibility and, therefore, places a great task on the one who desires it because it is a personal responsibility. Change is necessary but change neither come cheaply or easily. You either endure the difficulty or forget the necessity.

Many people want progress but only few are ready to follow the process. Behind everything that is working is a worker. Hence, if you want change, then you must work change.

If you are experiencing anything you dont like, this is the time to put in a conscious effort to change it, so that you dont remain the same. To experience new levels of glory, you need new levels of desire, willingness, focus, diligence, commitment, dedication and confidence.

There is no prize without a price; there is no title without a battle; there is no star without a scar; there is no throne without a thorn; there is no gain without pain and there is no glory without a story.

You are probably familiar with the popular saying that, No condition is permanent. However, until a strong desire for change meets with relevant action, change remains an illusion.

Topic: The Eagles Wings of Greatness

Topic: The Eagles Wings of Greatness
Let me start this way;
The strength of soaring high of an eagle is in the wings of the eagle.
The successful career of every eagle is in proper management of the eagle's wings.

Greatness is a life style with defined characteristics.
There are many factors to success, but tonight I have focused on the ones that have been prominent in my own journey, as well as those dominant for most successful people who I have met and interviewed over time.

Are you willing to go after success?

Greatness is being purposefully successful.
Do you have a clear vision; do you have a burning desire; are you willing to fail?

The eagles don't mind the fall, no matter the height.

Risk taking is one major character of every great man.
The following secrets are the wings of greatness.

If you apply them, they will help you unleash your greatness and succeed in life!
Blame and excuses are the hallmarks of an unsuccessful Life.

Start taking responsibility for everything today.

This will allow you to; learn more, take control of your life, and move forward quickly and successfully.
3. Believe in yourself.

Go into everything you do with supreme confidence.

You have to believe in your abilities to achieve.
The eagle is ever fearless.

4. Do what you love.

This is what keeps us moving during trying times.

I don't struggle to do this teaching, to speak to 100 of thousands of people, nooo because its what I am born for, and I love doing.

Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.

The only way to do great work is to love what you do.

The eagle's wings can sustain the eagle for hours in the air without noticing it.

How many birds can dwell on the air for hours without an atom of complain.

That is why the eagle fly higher and with enormous speed because of loving what it does.

You can't get any where in that career / business outside loving doing it.

Inspiration comes through love.

GO FOR THE PREFERABLE, NOT THE AVAILABLE!!!  An old man was walking with his only grand daughter, lookin tired the little lad asked her grand father ; Grand pa, I would like to have some Mangoes,she demanded. Her Grand pa was silent for some minutes, then after wish he broke the silence by asking her to get as many as she desired from a mango tree he saw close to them. Astonished,the little Girl asked her father,how do want me to get those mangoes from the tree, when the tree is very tall? Her father gave her a warm smile but said nothing to her. The little Girl became upset, she looked at her grand pa putting up a face of disappointment. She attempted climbing the tree but could not. She became frustrated just after an attempt.But surprisingly,she noticed that there were some Mangoes on the floor under the mango tree and she began to pick them up. Her grand pa encouraged her to get the fresh fruit from the tree rather than picking the ones from the floor, but she refused claiming that "mango is mango". She put them into a bag and continued her journey with her grand pa. When they got home,  she discovered that all the mangoes she had picked from the floor were not edible. She looked more frustrated than she was when she attempted climbing the tree. Just then,  her grand pa held hands with affection and looking into her eyes, he said u were not patient to have the PREFERABLE,but you went for the AVAILABLE. The price you would have paid to get the preferable is lesser than the price you paid to get the available,but the price of the available look cheaper in disguise. You wasted your effort picking up things that were not useful to you . She cried bitterly, but learnt a lesson never to go for the AVAILABLE no matter how cheap the offer might be , but always to aspire for the PREFERABLE .You must aspire to acquire the desire you admire, never you get tired, even when your enemies conspire it will backfire. Because you have a God greater than Nehemiah, Hezekiah,but a Messiah.

What are EMOTIONS????

What are EMOTIONS????
      These are feelings that comes along with a particular state of mind in an individual either good or bad. It could make us feel better/worse depending on what you as an individual choose or your state of mind.
        Emotions ain't a bad thing, its just an involuntary action of the mind in the existence of a being. it depends on the mood of an individual either JOYFUL OR SAD.
        It majorly deals with the heart, Emotions are meant to be curbed. Cos believe me if you can't curb your emotions they would curb you. When emotions come as a result of happiness I call it over excitedness which is actually nice buh when it becomes excess it becomes bad. Just  as the saying goes too much of everything is bad.
        When emotions comes as a result of sadness or sadnews it ain't good but then it can't be controlled... It could be as a result of loosing someone so dear to your heart. That's why I said it can't be controlled because loosing a loved one is so painful that even when you don't intend to cry or you try to comfort yourself, somewhere inside your heart you still feel the could also come as a result of disappointment from humans{probably when you assign them to duties and they fail to carry them out}. I call this kind EMOTIONS THAT LEAD to ANGER.
        Emotions also come as a result of heart break and this has to  do with relationships, Which could escalate and lead to depression. Now this is rare buh most times deals with certain individuals in certain relationship's especially the ones who started to commit their bodies first before any other thing, once their partner says they ain't interested in the relationship anymore they begin  to cry get sad and start thinking of the time, energy,& resources wasted in the relationship (the ones who gave conditionally) and this is how depression sets into their lives while the minor (those who gave unconditionally see it as normal& don't take it to heart) but in a nutshell if depression sets in and not properly handled it would lead to mental disorder which could end the story line except for the intervention of God.
       Emotions are beautiful and pleasant feelings given to us by our creator, so we must learn to handle could MAKE you or MAR you. And if  you cant curb them they would CURB YOU.......


I am a great mind. I must be ready to Challenge myself and set higher goals, i must clear my mind think about myself and reflect on what I really want. Once i am certain on what i want , I'll write them down and complete or create a plan towards achieving them. For i know There is power in boldness and once i can crush discouragement with passion and defeat adversity with confidence then i am a winner......never be discouraged in life.


A father takes his son into the forest, blindfolds him and
leaves him alone. He is required to sit on a stump the whole
night and not remove the blindfold until the rays of the
morning sun shine through it. He cannot cry out for help to
Once he survives the night, he is a MAN. He cannot tell the
other boys of this experience, because each lad must come
into manhood on his own. The boy is naturally terrified. He
can hear all kinds of noises. Wild beasts must surely be all
around him . Perhaps even some human might do him harm.
The wind blew the grass and trees and shook his stump, but
he sat stoically, never removing the blindfold. It would be the
only way he could become a man! Finally, after a horrific
night the sun appeared and he removed his blindfold. It was
then that he discovered his father sitting on the stump next
to him. He had been at watch the entire night, protecting his
son from harm. We, too, are never alone. Even when we
don't know it, God is watching over us, sitting on the stump
beside us. When trouble comes, all we have to do is reach
out to Him.
Moral of the story:
Just because you can't see God, doesn't mean He is not
there."For we walk by faith
, not just by sight".

Have a great walk with God today and always. Have a blessed week..

Spiritual emergency!!!

Spiritual emergency!!! We exist in a generation were the love of the God in the heart of the youth is waxing cold. A generation where "nothing matters " , It's so amazing that so many youths  can spend their time on social media engaging in irrelevant things but can not communicate to God through prayers for 30 mins. Most youth can spend their hard earn money on clothings, but can not buy inspirational books to study, they can give their sin partners huge amount of money, but can not give to the poor, needy, and to God almighty. We are in a state of Spiritual Emergency, a time "The Eagles " are to rise and stand in the gap. Remember, when you are in a state of prayerlessness,a state where you can not worship God in Spirit, a state where you have no regard for your Creator,then you are in a state of Spiritual Emergency. Let's rise up to our responsibility!!! Watch and Pray, the thief cometh not but to steal, to kill and to destroy(John 10 : 10 ) We should not give him a chance. Awake to the call of Spiritual Emergency!!! It's an URGENT call.

When things go wrong as they sometimes will, when the road you are trudging seems all uphil; when the funds are low and the debts are high and you want to smile but have to sigh; when care is pressing you down a bit- rest if you can but do not quit. Success is failure turned inside out; the silver tint of the clouds of doubt; and you can never tell how close you are, it may be near when it seems so far; so stick to the fight when you are hardest hit- its when things go wrong that YOU MUST NOT QUIT.


Have you written your jamb thrice?
Or waec and neco twice?
Have you fed on satan's lies?
Soaked pillow from all night cries

Have they called your product trash?
Or Incessantly run out of cash?
Have you seen hardship so harsh?
Or your breakthrough do just flash

Worn out feet from trekking streets?
Shirt and tie that doesn't fit?
Tired of praying for help'meet?
Or you just keep missing that hit

Is your song called odious noise?
While pleading; you've lost your voice
You've lost esteem or poise

Are you thinking of giving up?
Or drowning your worries in night club
Are you seeing the signpost "STOP"?
Or all is just crashing, bursting like pop

Those who mocked you at those joints
Those mocking fingers that point
Those who jest you back and front
Soon you'd be a Great Reference Point

Don't give up, you'd soon hit that goal
Strengthen your spirit, mind and soul
For those who mock and to you howl
Would In your Wealth Eat Full bowl...


   Sleep seemed to have deserted me as I lay in the darkness and hear the clock strike midnight, thoughts buzzing through my mind, I thought... "Everyday we get older, but do we get close to actualizing our dreams?" Honestly I dunno, because I felt trapped by the never ending tantrum of being human and fallible, all I seemed to have were dreams, hopes and distant wishes. They say dream big... How big? Time is no man's friend. I needed something concrete to hold on to before I faded away like the rainbow on a rainy day, I Need an achievement, maybe a college degree, some responsibilities, a relationship with God, family, anything, something with worth. I was tired of dreaming, wanted to work it out, with pen and paper, with cunning and brain work, with sweat and muscle and maybe even blood and Iron... I wanted to build my present today because the future seemed to be so faraway bt closer to me than I ever thought... All those pondering and all I needed was God's Grace; It is not of he that runneth or he that willeth but of God that showeth mercy.



 Say to your self....
I am a success. infact i was born to succeed, it is not an option.
The fact is, nobody was born to be a failure.  Along the way to your destination, there are meant to pothole which could slow you down to think. Some will quit at this pothole and call themselve a faliure. For me, whenever i encounter such, i either win, or learn. Those things you take as faliure, are actually suppose to be a test. But some person will chose to quit. This is not because you are a failure but because you've said to yourself " i have failed"
You have to be concious of the fact that there will be bridges and some may decide to call it failure, this might happen not because you are a failure. No friends.
There are failure not because you failed, but because success can't be actualise without first having few challenges which people call failure. You can't be successful without having a few challenges along the way. without challenges, which people often refer to as failure you wouldn't know what success is, just like a hot and cold water, you know when water is hot because you've touched a cold water. You do not actually fail, you learn,discover,improve and then move forward.
It may sound absurd but the truth is that there are neither helpless nor hopeless situation, just as there is no problem without solution. Every problem or challenges is an opportunity. Every challenge comes to bring out something inside of us to light. Challenges, which some persons see as failure is an advantage not a disadvantage.
Thomas edison failed (i would rather use the word "learn" ) 999 times before he finally found the right combination to make a light bulb work. Abraham Linclon failed (i would rather use the word"learn" ) 21 times before he final won the position of the president of United State of America. Nelson Mandela spent 29 years in the prison before he finally got the freedom he was fighting for. From history you will discover that great men and women that are celebrated today are those that didn't quit. They didn't see their challenges as a disadvantage but as an advantage. They learnt from their setbacks and use it as a bench mark and improved on them. Many people give up so easily today. What you don't know is that, you stop living once you quit. How many men have been celebrated because they quit, as far as i know, none. We should know that every challenges contains an opportunity to learn,improve and grow. If you don't  learn, grow, improve and discover the opportunity then you will keep on meeting same challenges.
I outline some few steps to manifesting your success, they are as follows;
1. Start seeing yourself as a success;- You are a unique being, with talent, skills and special ability. nobody can be like you,they may be similar. Until you stop seeing yourself as a failure and start seeing your self as a success, that you are, you will remain what you see yourself to be. Ben carson always say something  (which he got from his mother) especially when faced with tough challenges,  "if anybody can do it, i can do it better". Start seeing yourself as a great and success person God created you as.
2. Believe in your self;-
You've got one life and one chance, make the most of b contd...

Religion is man trying to find GOD...
Christianity is God calling and finding man.

Gal 4:9
But now after you have known God, or rather are known by God, how is it that you turn again to the weak and beggarly elements, to which you desire again to be in bondage?

2Th 2:13,14
But we are bound to give thanks to God always for you, brethren beloved by the Lord, because God from the beginning chose you for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth,
to which He called you by our gospel, for the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Religion says give your life to God...
Christianity is God giving His grace(love) and life to mankind.

John 3:16...For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

John 10:10
"The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.

Religion is the greatest enemy of christianity and the witnessing of Christ.

Religion is the bondage of the ignorant christian.

Religion appears godly and friendly yet it has crippled many a christian and even deny them of their rights and priviledges in christ.

Religion has made many folks to coin out doctrines based on the ideology,philosophy,likes and dislikes of men at the expense of what holds true in the HOLY SCRIPTURE.

Its a pity that even among believers,many have not been able to distinguish between religion which has formed the tradition of several folks and Christianity as defined by  God's WORD.

Religion has made men call TRUTH a lie and lie truth...


For donkey years,we have been thought religion in place of the WORD...and it has formed and conditioned our mind set and even hampered our relationship and fellowship with the Father.

We have been led and thought by men and women who know NOTHING about the finished work of Christ and the privileges it accords us.

1. The first symptom of religion is LAW.

Shamefully today,many still preach LAW-works, even on some magnified podiums . They still feed their sheep with Mosaic laws, thous and thou shall nots...
You see,the cliche: "You are what you eat", isn't just applicable to physical things does more so to spiritual things.

You will always look like what you eat. If you are fed with sin,law,hell fire or demon orientated messages,your experiences will always be demonic and hell firelistic.

You will always dream and see your great grand mother and her boyfriend plus his cousin, chasing you with koboko and knife in their hands in hell...

Many know little to nothing about what God was up to by giving Israelites the law. And how that for a new creation, there is NO LAW.

Rom 6:14
For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace.

For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.

How can a sane person read that and still preach thou shall not wear ear rings.trousers.wig.rings.boxers...thou shall not touch this or not eat not go here or not buy not....WHAT MADNESS!

Col 2:16
Therefore let no one judge you in food or in drink, or regarding a festival or a new moon or sabbaths,
17.  which are a shadow of things to come, but the substance is of Christ.
18.  Let no one defraud you of your reward, taking delight in false humility and worship of angels, intruding into those things which he has not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,
20.  Therefore, if you died with Christ from the basic principles of the world, why, as though living in the world, do you subject yourselves to regulations--
21   "Do not touch, do not taste, do not handle,"
22.   which all concern things which perish with the using--according to the commandments and doctrines of men?
23.  These things indeed have an appearance of wisdom in self-imposed religion, false humility, and neglect of the body, but are of no value against the indulgence of the flesh.


Folks who seat under places where law and sin is preached,never live above sin. They will always be struggling with one secret sin or the other but appear to be doing good on the external.

LISTEN UP-Preachers...teachers..evangelists...prophets..apostles...members...which ever title you advice for you is

Because if you claim you are God's  servant and you are still preaching law when GOD has abolished it in Christ and showed us a new way...the NEW COVENANT, then i wonder who you are really serving.
I pity those ignorant sheep following you because both you and them make up a team of ignoramuses.

1Cor 15:56
The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law.

Check out where sin gospel is the order of the day, that is where sin blossoms especially secretly. The logic is simple:
The LAW- preaching about it,enacting it only strengthens sin. LAW messages is the power of sin.

If you are a sin, demon, hell, devil,  or law preacher and a listener of same, you will always be conscious of all that. It will form in your subconscious and that is what you will produce in your life.


Gal 5:1
Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.

Why live in bondage when Christ has set you free from law and sin?
The law in the first place was not given to the children of Isreal to be kept. Its purpose was to REVEAL SIN and show them that no man in flesh can actually keep or meet GOD'S STANDARD.

Rom 3:23
for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

The law was to make man run to GOD for grace and put his trust in the righteousness that is of FAITH not WORKS.

I am not under law but under grace. Sin does not have dominion over me...I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. I am justified in Christ. I choose to dwell in this consciousness. GLORY TO GOD.


Spread the good news of the gospel this week as we approach the  coming of the son of God.  Go ye into the world and preach the gospel.  For this course we live  # Team WC. your week is blessed,  Amen.


Alone I sat,
In the dark
Lost in thoughts,random thoughts
Tossing back and forth
Those lies, those tricks, those acts and deeds
Those words that should be left unsaid
Fettered by the chains of past
Memories replayed
I cried....

I looked around,
Seeking a solace
I saw my most treasured book
"As far as the east is from the west
I'm the eternal vine that quenches thirst
I knew you before you were born
I loved you before you knew"
I smiled...

''I took your sins,
Openly crucified,
Nailed on my scarred bare hands
With my blood you were made right
Saved from slavery
Inherited sonship
A redeemed son, my joint heir
For you to live
I Died"...............(selah)

I cuddled,Held on to Him tight
I felt Him like he was near
He was!
"Your body is my temple, keep it clean"
I will, I replied
''Its not by power or might
Stay chaste, stay pure, stay clean, be plain
Stay in me and I in you
I'm the way, the truth and life
The eternal vine"
I'd Abide

I felt His presence so intense
"He's in me and I in Him"
I Echoed
"Be confident, determined and courageous"
I mumbled,
With calmness and Joy of the heart
To the heav'nly realm
I flied.....

Prevailing Prayers

When you hear some folks pray you would think God has travelled. But the truth is God is more close to you than the shirt you are wearing.  God isnt far away, He is nigh you.

You will hear words like 'Father wherever you are I know you can hear me, prove to me that you are God else I will drop my Bible' (Eh! Seriously?)

 Its not in the amount of words, grammatical construction or the tears (its possible to cry in prayers),  its not the location, posture though may be important  BUT it is the PRAYER OF FAITH that produces result.
James 5:16 puts it 'The fervent (heartfelt) prayer of the righteous man',  that kind of prayer will always produce result.

The next time you want pray, don't complain, don't  talk like God is far away, speak to Him like a Father. Lay demands in prayers based on the word, move mountains with your faith.
The best way to pray effectively is praying in tongue(shatalamaya kiddosh ) wooooooooh you can never pray amiss in tongues, 1Corinthians 14:2-4 puts it as 'SPEAKING MYSTERIES'. The devil can decode, the human mind can understand what we are saying.
You settle things that will happen in future, you clear your path and lay claim of your inheritance.
If you haven't received the infilling of the HolyGhost, receive it today.

Go ahead and enjoy a glorious prayer life.

Glory to God!!!!!!!!

Friday, 22 April 2016


The room looked dirty,with clothes dragging for their space at the foot of the bed and around the room,the table looked like it was going to crash soon from the weight of books sitting on it. The chair was upside down,as though someone was making an attempt to stand on it from beneath.
April looked at the picture on top of her fridge and hissed. Getting up from the floor,the only space in the room that was free from the rioting clothes,she looked at her window,and walked lazily towards it. Taking a step at a time so she does not fall because she felt really weak,she got close to the window bar and Pulling the curtain out of the way,she sighed as the beautiful sunlight hit her sad face.
Wow,the day look beautiful,she thought to herself,she got sight of Benjamin,Mr Martin,her landlord's son,kicking his ball with happiness and mumbling to himself as though he was his own referee. She smiled and nearly laughed,as she noticed he was just on panties and his little boots,both blue in colour, this child loves colour match she thought,as she looked at the handsome three-years old some more.
Looking away from him she looked at the mango tree that served as relaxation park and also car park for Mr Martin,they looked ripe enough to be plucked. She was going to make plans towards that next week.
She stopped starring and looked back into her room. "hmmn,this room is a mess" she said aloud. Moving to her table, she picked her phone and went to her inbox,opened the message from Daniel and read the message for the twentieth time that morning.
     "April am sorry,but my parents have chosen a bride for me and you know how I respect them,so am sorry dear, but our engagement us off. I pray you find a better man that will love you more than I do and marry you-----Daniel".
     She pulled up her chair and sat on it,looking at her phone as tears gather in her eyes,she re-assessed message,this was the first time in 5years he was calking her by her name in a message. How can he say he respects his parents so much,or was he no longer the Dan she kept begging to reconcile with his dad,who just came back to his family after 6years of travelling to Spain? And how can he say a better man that will love her more than he did? How can? Or is there such a man? His love for her felt unbeatable. And for heaven's sake, how can he call off their 2years engagement through a text message,not even a call.
Now,the tears were running down her cheeks.
She looked at herself in the mirror and cried more,it seemed that she has lost a lot of weight in 10hours. Her hair that have cost so much to make looked rough and old. She pushed her hair back and caught sight of her bible lying within her books. She pulled it out with care and blew on it. It looked really dusty. Why both? She thought,I look at it only on Christmas carol day.
She opened the first page and looked at her mother's beautiful writing "To April Ona,on the occasion of her twentieth birthday". She smiled through her tears and covered it. This was a gift from her mother 9years ago.
She picked up her phone and made another attempt to call Dan,still not reachable. She dropped the phone and picked up the bible,stood up from the chair and walked towards her wardrobe. She opened the top cabinet and was about to place it inside,then she notice that some parts where overfolded,she closed the cabinet and sat on the bed.
She needed to straighten out those pages,for it felt like she was disrespecting her mother's gift.
She opened  the pages and started straightening them out. The book of Psalms,lovely she thought,she remembered that she was told those days in the Sunday school class in church that it was written by king David,her mind drifted away from the pages and she recalled the story of David and Bethsheba the wife of Uriah. How the king got her pregnant and made the husband deliver his own death sentence. Shame, she thought,men are wicked. They have been wicked from time immemorial,she concluded.
Then her eyes caught the book of Psalms chapter 138 verse 8 "THE LORD WILL PERFECT THAT WHICH CONCERNS ME;YOUR MERCY O LORD ENDURES FOREVER;FORSAKE NOT THE WORKS OF YOUR OWN HAND". Interesting,she said
"and how on earth can I say my life is perfect? She hissed and continued straightening the pages. She turned another page and read it, "FOR YOU ARE A ROYAL PRIESTHOOD, A HOLY NATION"--------Halleluyah,she said and burst out laughing,Halleluyah felt so strange to her lips.
She thought of the verse of that bible for a while and looked at herself in the mirror, she got up,sat on the chair and sat directly opposite the mirror,took some nose wipes from the pack on the floor and blew into it. Then she looked at her face again and thought, "SO I AM A ROYAL PRIESTHOOD,A HOLY NATION?" Then she said aloud,
April,you are beautiful,you are smart and you are intelligent,no more suicide thoughts,no more tears for Daniel,get yourself up and face life,he ain't coming back. She knelt down,with the bible in her hands and wept bitterly.
When did she forget all this promises of God? When did she drift away from God so much that she allowed life to toss her to an fro without remembering a single promise? "LORD JESUS I NEED YOU BACK INTO MY LIFE,Even  IF DANIEL DON'T COME BACK I NEED YOU,I FEEL TOO EMPTY TO CONTINUE LIKE THIS".

Col 3:16
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.

A believer should be a word-man. One who reads it, knows it, believes it and practice it. That's the definition of a healthy Christian.

The one who truly knows the word, will do it. For the word you know but don't act on won't bless you-it won't do you any good. Your life will be same as one who would not read and learn the word at all. Both of you are one and the same.
No distinction.

However we should understand that God's word is given to us for us to learn and practice-do it.

The word shouldn't be an activity, an even or an occasion. It IS FOR OUR DAILY LIVING or WALK.

The terrible mistake some saint make is they use the word for occasion but don't have it as a way of living.
Do you understand?

What I mean is...some folks save the word of God for the rainy day- to them it is a tool they draw upon when the need-often satan's darts or situations of life arises.


No one becomes a healthy Christian who is in the habit of such practice.

Learning the word and been taught the word is the TOOL for growth. No one can experience true spiritual growth who is not given to the ministry word.


It's not what we run to when we come against diverse trials and challenges.

It ought to be what regulates our day-day life.
God's word is not a spare tire. It is the main thing.

Our knowledge of the word determines our level of faith.

Your faith can't develop beyond your level of God's word.

We are built by it.

Act 20:32
"And now, brethren, I commend you to God and to the word of His grace, which is able to build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified.


Let it be the MAIN PLAN.


Do not wait till you fall I'll before you confess
"I am the healed"

Don't wait till you need to pay that bill or buy that car or pay your fees before you confess
"God supplies all my needs"

Don't wait for to step on a poison before you confess
"Nothing by any means hurt me"

Don't wait to be poor before you confess
"I am prosperous... God delights in my prosperity"

Don't wait to fail before you confess
"I am a success in this life"

Don't wait to being a mess before you confess
"Nothing works against me"

Don't wait to do right before you confess
"I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus"

Don't wait to err before you confess
"I am the man forgiven...sin has no power over me,for I am not under the law but under grace"

Don't wait to be lost for thought before you confess
"I cannot be confuse, I walk in the light, I always know what to do and how to do all I do"

Don't wait till the doctors say you have 7days to live before you confess
"I shall not die till full old age, I will fulfill my purpose..healing is is my"

Don't wait for fear to mount on you before you confess
"I have a sound mind, I do not have the spirit of fear"

Don't wait till you are offended before you confess
"I walk in love always, no matter the offence, I am slow to wrath"...

Don't wait till you get married before confessing
"My wife/husband &  kids are blessed...I have a blessed marriage and family"

Don't wait till you have 1million before you confess
"I am a addicted giver, a loving giver, nothing is too big or expensive for me to give"

In summary, don't wait until you get into a tight situation before you USE THE WORD!

Do you wait till you body stinks before you bath?

Obviously no!

So make  a habit of living daily by the word not occasionally.


While you are bathing, walking, defecating, relaxing, etc...make a practice of confessing the word over your life. Be found always with the word on your mouth!

Be a WORD ADDICT - there is no side effect!

Living and doing the word starts with hearing, learning and saying it.

You can't practice or do the word  you have not heard or learnt or been saying.


God's word in your mouth will become ineffective when you are under pressure, anxious, fearful, and worried.

These can render the word fruitless in your mouth.

That is why it is of paramount importance that you don't wait to be in a mess before you start confessing your faith.

Most times, you are already under pressure....then fear and doubt sets in and before long, you begin to question the integrity of the word.


The world says "when we get tk that bridge, we will find a way to cross it" let's get there first.

The word says...

Rom 4:17
(as it is written, "I have made you a father of many nations") in the presence of Him whom he believed, even God, who gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did;

From the WORD,

We don't get to the bridge before crossing it...we start crossing it with the word of God in our mouth.

We call things that don't exist as though they did.

So don't wait to come under pressure before you confess the word.

Let it be a daily regular business or habit for you.

For me, it has always been, it still is, it forever will be till time ends.

I am a WORD ADDICT- thank God!

Same as King David. I respect his addiction level of  the word. It is instructive and worthy of emulation.


If a man who lived under the  old covenant, one who was spiritually dead, who didn't have the indwelling holy spirit etc had such habit and hunger for the word(the law of the Lord), how much more a new creation with an eternal indwelling holy ghost... Shouldn't we be greater addicts of the word?

Hear King David

Ps 119:148
My eyes anticipate the night watches and I am awake before the cry of the watchman, that I may meditate on Your word.

Ps 119:97-105

97Oh, how love I Your law! It is my meditation all the day.(S)

98You, through Your commandments, make me wiser than my enemies, for [Your words] are ever before me.

99I have better understanding and deeper insight than all my teachers, because Your testimonies are my meditation.(T)

100I understand more than the aged, because I keep Your precepts [hearing, receiving, loving, and obeying them].

101I have restrained my feet from every evil way, that I might keep Your word [hearing, receiving, loving, and obeying it].(U)

102I have not turned aside from Your ordinances, for You Yourself have taught me.

103How sweet are Your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!(V)

104Through Your precepts I get understanding; therefore I hate every false way.

105Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.(W)

Glory to God

Hear his offspring- King Solomon

Prov 4:20-22
My son, attend to my words; consent and submit to my sayings.

21Let them not depart from your sight; keep them in the center of your heart.

22For they are life to those who find them, healing and health to all their flesh.

The WORD OF GOD IS THE ONLY DRUG(Medicine) with no side effect and no over dose( even doctors testify)

The world says "too much of everything is bad"
but not with the word. You can't have too much of the word.

I AM ADDICTED...(to the word) I OWN UP...

Be ADDICTED to God's word.

Renew your commitment to the word of God- both reading and the practise of it.


Christ did it all...we always win


Denomination !!! This word has caused more harm than good. It has divided the body of Christ into parts, instead of making us one body in Christ. Denomination has caused division and segregation,making anointed men of God to strive for population rather than impartation, it is now the song we sing and rhythm we dance to instead of worshiping God in spirit and In truth. This is what causes strive in God's kingdom to the extent that Bro A, can't give a helping hand to Bro C, and Sister B, can't accommodate Sister D because they are not from same church, there after we go to our various religious centers lifting up our hands we claim to be holy but stained with blood from malice and hatred,we forget the fact that murderers are not those who kill with knives and guns alone, but also those who kill people in their heart also due to hatred. Please we are bought with a priceless price, we should not frustrate the effort of Christ.1 Corinthians 1:12-13 .The big question is "is Christ divided? " REMEMBER WE ARE ONE BODY IN CHRIST. Let's fight against Denominational strives. UNITED WE STAND, DIVIDED WE FALL. I love u all.


  Many a times, we murder and slaughter, not with sharp spear or double barreled guns but with the swords of our words. Can you pause and think about how many times you have gossiped or passed a negative remark about someone? How many times you have lashed out insults and rained shower of abuses over a fellow man?
John maxwell said that our words are either hammer or cushion that swats or give solace. Which is yours? Do people feel glad or sad after conversing with you? Our words can be a source of encouragement to people, give people hope, put smile on forlorn faces and make people believe in themselves. Even where it is unavoidable to criticize or chastise. Let it be done with love and sincere honesty such that the addressee sees why ''it" is being said, beyond what is being said. I would conclude with this short poem.
Words can make or mar,
They turn slaves to star,
Words seal.
Words chase pains afar,
They soothe blight-full scar,
Words heal.
Have you seen men spa
With words strong like bar?
Words kill.
So I ask, what would your words do today?


Goodevening Ministers....I beg and plead with you PLEASE PLEASE take time to read this....

"THE GOD OF A SECOND CHANCE " a Testimony of Pastor Benny Hinn on his tour to South Africa in April 2016.
Please pay attention to his detailed testimony. He says in 2015 he had heart attack and was taken to the hospital for heart surgery and while in the hospital he had a dream and in that dream he found himself in a long que at the gate of  heaven and everyone was dressed in white garment. At the gate was Jesus dressed in a shiny sparkling white garment different from everyone  and beside him Pastor Benny Hinn saw a woman that was playing a piano. Jesus would nod his head in signal as to whether a person was accepted or denied to enter. If it was a yes, the pianist would play glorious melodies and the glory was overwhelming and the gates would automatically open but if it was a denial the pianist would play horrible melodies and demons would come to take the person away to hell. He says, out of the whole que only 20 percent entered but 80 percent were denied. They were all Christians and full of pastors but only 20 percent entered. He says everyone was trembling as they were waiting on the que. He says eventually Pastor Benny Hinn's turn came and the pianist knew Pastor Benny and smiled at him in admiration of his record amongst the people on earth but when Jesus looked at Benny Hinn, his look could tell that he was not impressed with Pastor Benny Hinn, and Pastor Hinn says his trembling and fear had increased knowing that he would not be able to make it through that gate and when Jesus was about to make his decision, then he woke up and God said to him "Don't blow up this time, this is your second chance" Pastor Benny Hinn then explained something that every long serving christian need to take note of. He said all through his ministry he had two ministry duties, one was to serve the people with his gift that God has given him ie preaching and performing miracles and the othe ministry was his personal walk with God ie. his fellowship with God on everyday basis. He says but from 2010 as he passed through a divorce his relationship with God became dead and God was far away. He says through the divorce he lost about 7 million dollars and his house and his relationship with God was gone totally. The amazing thing is that he says when he knew that he is no longer with God thus when he saw many miracles in his ministry. He says that, because he is a great pretender so he pretended before the people as if he is with God and yet he was not.(remember the gifts of God are without repentance that is to say whether you are with God or not the gift will still work, but to enter the gate of heaven it will be your telationship with God ie your right standing with God through Jesus Christ) " As to pretence, it is not only Pastor Benny Hinn but any long serving christian becomes used to the things of God and eventually pretence becomes his everyday walk before the people and one minds more of the degree and opinion that the crowds hold on him than what God says" pastor Benny Hinn now condemns the selling of anointing oils and holy waters and any thing of God that today pastors sell in churches to make money. He says since God has given him a second chance his focus is no longer on the crowds and their opinions but on his personal relationship with God so that he may enter that gate. The question is if Pastor Benny Hinn was trembling and sweating at the gate in fear that he would not make it, what about you when you will face the gate. If we think because of our long serving in the church, or preaching, or works or miracle performance, I think he has out done most of us and yet God's acceptance at the gate is not based on these. "Phil 2:12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling." God has not given Pastor Benny Hinn alone this second chance but the whole body of christ world wide to walk home into his arms through his grace and mercy before the door closes which is very shortly. God has used Pastor Benny Hinn in this case because of his influence and the public opinion that people has on him and of how much an individual would then realise of his short fall before that gate. Its time to seek repentance before God, its time to drop down titles given by men in search for God's mercy that anables one to enter through that gate.
Send this message to your beloved. Its time for evangelising & holiness.

who is an under age

Who is an under age?
An under age is a person who is below the acceptable adult age of any country. That is, a person that has not gotten to the age approved for adult's legal rights and responsibilities. According to the oxford Advance learners Dictionary 6th edition, An under age is a person not legally old enough to do a particular thing. In our nation, Nigeria and mostly other nations, an under age is any person below 18 years of age. These are category of persons between the age of 0-17 years of age. They are more in primary or secondary school (elementary and High school). If there are any category not to be cater for, certainly not the under age. They are suppose to be taken care of by their parents guardian, sponsor, government and even other philanthropic individual or NGOs. Nowadays, reverse is the case, where underage are the ones catering for their parents/guardains, sponsors e.t.c through means of hawking, child labour e.t.c.
In this write up our main concern is Hawking; Under age hawking. I have been able to explain who an under age is. Now let's look at the meaning of hawking.
What is Hawking?
The oxford Advance learners Dictionary 6th edition defined hawking as trying to sell things by going from place to place asking people to buy them. Hawking is moving to sell goods or wares from one place to another asking people to buy, by means of advertising their goods or wares by themselves e.g buy pure water, buy orange, buy popcorn e.t.c. Hawking in a more simplier term is the carrying of goods or wares from place to place for sale.
Hawking is a world wide menace, especially in the Africa Continent. Hawking is an abuse of the under age child. Asking an under age to hawk goods; a person below 18 years of age to carry goods or wares from place to place, either in the market place, the street, the road side e.t.c is not only wrong, it's against the Child Right Act. Persons who do that i.e send the Child to hawk, be it the parents or guardains, sponsors e.t.c are not only committing an offence and abusing this children but are as well endangering the life of the child,they are exposing them to dangers. Some persons may want to be defensive by putting the blame on the situation of the nation and the government. That is not enough reason to expose the child to the dangers and effects of hawking. People always want to have an excuse for doing or not doing a particular thing, but don't always focus on the reason to do or not do that particular thing. I must admit the nation's situation is not rosy, but to make things otherwise we have to create the kind of future we want to have. For goodness sake these are tomorrow's leader, they are the future of the nation.
According to Mark a colleague who chipped in his opinion "Under age hawking is bad. Every child has a right to education. Hawking endangers their lives making them vulnerable to kidnap, accident, molestations and abuses. Because of the nature of the environment where they hawk, they tend to become hostile. It has an adverse negative influence on the child. They learn things the hard way".
From kenneth's opinion, "the level of poverty and ignorance in the country is too much. Where a parent can not cater for their children because of unemployment, illiteracy, increase in prices of goods e.t.c". John another colleague opined "that poverty forces poor families and sponors to send under age children to hawk. hawking among under age can leave many severe consequences on them and they face many problems which may cause permanent damage to them as well as the society. Children usually hawk to contribute, as well as provide financial support to their families and sponsors"
Now, Who is to be blamed? The parents or guardains, the sponsors, the government or the nation's economy? This question is left for you; my reader to answer.
What then are the causes of hawking?
From the opinion of kenneth and John, poverty is the major cause. There are other causes as well, which may include: Illiteracy, poor family planning, war and insurgence, religion and culture among others.
Starting from poverty, borrowing the words of John and kenneth. The level of poverty in a country being a major cause, has forced poor families and sponsors to send under age children to hawk, Where a parent can not cater for their children because of unemployment, increase in the prices goods e.t.c. Children are usually sent to hawk to contribute, as well as provide financial support to their families and sponsors, which in turn have negative effect not only on the child but as well as the nation. The question now is, does it worth it? Is it worth the risk associated with hawking?
Illiteracy being another major cause means lack or little of knowledge and education. John and kennth also have something to say in this regard, which i also contributed to "under age engaged in hawking and the Persons (parents,sponsors,guardains e.t.c) who usually send them out on this suicide mission don't have educational knowledge (or enough of it) of the adverse effects of hawking on the under aged". It is a true fact that people will always act or behave according to their level of education and knowledge. Education here, isn't just all about school. It is beyond that; it entails enlightenment programmes and Information dissemination to the general public on the effects and dangers of hawking on the under age class.
Poor family planning, also one of the causes can also be tagged to lack of knowledge. Some parents especially poor ones are fond of giving birth to many children than they can cater for. This become worse, in the sense that after giving birth to the children they lack finances to take care of them, thereby sending them to hawk for the family. Placing their responsibilities on the child. As I stated earlier, there should be a proper enlightment of the general public by the governments, NGOs, Health practitioners and media on the importance of family planning. So that this menace can be eradicated or reduce to the lowest level in the society.
Wars and insurgences causes can also be tagged as one of the causes of hawking. Wars and insurgences make people homeless, orphan, poor e.t.c. the under age is not exempted from the adverse effects of war and insurgences. This may lead to hawking. When there is nothing to start but to hawk and mostly under ages are the major hawkers.
Another cause to be talked about, is religion and culture. There are some religion and culture who encourage hawking. An example is the islamic religion, in Nigeria. Under age children are been sent to the street by someone they call mallam. The former president, president Goodluck Ebele Jonathan tried to the best of his ability to raid this menace by the introduction of western education in northern region of Nigeria. This lead to the rise of the terrorist group "Boko Haram" which means against book, against western education. Some culture make it seem that a child is supposed to take care of their parent: true but when they become adult, not while still an under age child.
These are some of the causes among others.
What effect does hawking has or leave on the under age child?
I concur with Mark's point when he said that "hawking endangers the lives of the under age making them vulnerable to kidnap, accident, molestations and abuses. Because of the nature of the environment where they hawk, they tend to become hostile. It has an adverse negative influence on the child and they learn things the hard way". In John's words "hawking is one of the reason for the waywardness among this under age children. Most of them end up as cultist, robbers, street thugs, and street warlord. One of the respect given to a country is how her young ones are being catered for".
There is the issue of molestation: where the young female under age are being abused sexually( raped) in the street due to the nature of the environment, sometimes leading to  sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and unwanted pregenacy.
Also we have the issue of accident, especially those who hawk on the road. A case happened late last year in benin, Edo state where an under age hawker was crush by a heavy vehicle ( lorry ) in the process of hawking.
These are some the effects, among many others.
Now what is the solution to this menace, how do we curb this issue of hawking in our nation?
"As to what can be done To stop it......First of all we must recognize that the society lacks structure. The government has to build a formidable structure to tackle such things in accordance to the set law (The Child Right Act). One of such structure will be Setting up a task force to watch, Arrest and prosecute offenders. Laws should be put in place to check mate such actions. Again,Schooling should be made attractive to these young ones, Their place of learning should be made conducive, such that, they will rather be in school than any where else. In addition to this, the Federal Government should enforce the several policies and legislations adopted for improving the welfare of children, to help reduce under age hawking. Let there be introduction of strong enforcement institutions that will enforce the law against under age hawking without any form of sentiment.
Education should be the first tool in combating this menace. Although primary education has been made tuition fee free through the Universal Basic Education (not all free, you have to by books, pen e.t.c). Many children do not attend school, about six million children in Nigeria, according to research, both boys and girl, are estimated to be working. The dropout rates for primary school is high for both boys and girls because of several factors such as poverty and early marriage, teenage pregnancy, poor school, or cultural and religious issues.
Also, we need persons who are and does not only consider the political, social and economic development to the nation. Nigeria need Persons who will reach out to the poor, in form of help, establishing them, training them in skills acqiuision and enlightening them on issues that may lead to this menace: hawking. Nigeria need Persons who will impact truth into as well as help the victim or those involve in this menace. Nigeria need Persons of determination, Persons who see a great future: great minds: world changers....
