Who’s frank Edward?
Frank Edward was the little boy who hawked okpa(Igbo dish) in the streets of Enugu before he joined Christ embassy and learnt the rudiments of music…
Who’s Uma Ukpai ?
Uma Ukpai was the little boy who lost his father at the age of ten,, and as a man of God lost his two children in a day but kept on moving..
Johnson Suleiman was the man of God that his ministry failed in Agbor delta state in the early stage before he moved to Auchi..
Chioma Jesus was the woman no one believed in until God announced her in 2003 …
Sinach was the woman who got married with no child for five years but she kept on serving God..
Pastor David Ibiyeomi was the man only few believed in when he was starting salvation ministries..
I don’t know why you want to give up on the mighty visions and dreams that God gave you..
Because no one believes in you..
It looks impossible.. Because of critics..
The money is not there.. Calm down..
If you had known how many that saw Apostle Suleiman as a failure when he closed his ministry in Agbor, would you believe he’ll still push…
If you had known how many that gave up on frank Edward when he was hawking okpa in Enugu,, would you have believed he ll still succeed..
Can I talk to you?
The beginning has few friends..
Success has many friends..
Before you give up in that relationship of yours,, can you pause and have a rethink and pray again..
It is too late to give up on that good vision and dream..
In the eyes of men, you need to look like it to be it,
But in God’s eyes, you don’t need to look like it to be it…
I charge you to stop complaining and start believing,,
Come out of that depression…
Why thinking of suicide..? God is not done with you!! Tell yourself, God is not done with me..
So far He’s not done working, you’re not done waiting..
You’re the best of your kind.. Rise up, stop comparing yourself with people, pursue the man and woman you’re made to become!
Uma ukpai after loosing his father had to start saving money to pay his School fees?
God can still help you… Uncles has failed I know but God will not fail..
And Caleb said let us go up to this mountain and possess it for we are well able.. Numbers 13:30
Never expect everyone believe in what you carry..
People will misunderstand you because of what God told you..
They will persecute you, but be certain about what God told you..
When your vision begins to operate beyond the level of your confinement, expect to be misunderstood and talked about..
Joseph is a case study..
Friends I don’t know who am talking to, but I believe I’m talking to you reading this,,
You started not because people wanted you to start but because God was in your beginining..
It’s Too late to give up
He that keeps Israel neither sleeps nor slumber..
But wait, let reason together, you entered ministry just few years ago, All of a sudden you want to be famous by all means.
They are now introducing you to shortcuts on how to increase your crowd in 2 weeks.
They have even told you to go to that river to meet the Queen of the sea,also given you the address of that native doctor’s house.
Music minister with wonderful and angelic voice…
You’re killing yourself to be announced by all means. It’s possible they have told you what to do to make your album sell.
Have you forgotten the genuine call ?
What about those things God showed you before you started?
Understand ye not that God Is a God of process?
That God gave you the vision of leading revival movement and taking the gospel across the nation does not mean that It will not tarry..
Why are you in a rush??
Apostle Johnson Suleman received the vision of Omega Fire in 1994 ,
10 years later in 2004, The church was founded..
The scripture said that even though the vision tarries, wait for it, for it must surely come to pass. (Habakkuk 2)
Why do you choose to waste than to wait?
It’s better to wait than to waste..
Why rush in that business of yours?
Why do you want to grow by all means excluding God’s timing and process.
Even if the vision fails at first trial, Don’t forget that the God of the vision never fails. Just ask him the right strategy to employ.
Please Tell that young friend of yours that’s zealous and ambitious about ministry,business and life to calm down to avoid destructive crash..
Young lady that wants to marry by all means ,
Again it is the Better to wait than to waste.
No matter how long the vision tarries…. Wait for it
IT MUST SURELY COME TO PASS…
Shall We pray!
