Knowledge is the key to freedom


Most things that fly around are lies, this is the reason I don’t buy into anything someone says without biblical back up or support.

Life doesn’t answers to looking, life answers to seeing. A future which you can’t picture, you can’t feature in it.

For all the land which thou seest, to thee I will give, and to thy seed forever.” Gen.13:15.

If you can see it, you can have it. If you can’t see it, you can’t have it.

This is why you must look through the window of the scripture in order see what the future of your destiny holds

You can’t claim an inheritance that you are not aware of. You must have known that your father owns some valuable properties somewhere before you can claim them. This is why you must hunt for the inheritances promised with the conditions attached to realised them.

Nothing of value is for free: Every blessing has a condition attached to it; until you meet up with the condition, it actualization is farfetched.

“And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe and to do all his commandants which I command thee this day, that the lord thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth.” Deu.28:1. (You can read up to verse 3 to get better view of the blessings)

Knowledge is the key to freedom.

The entrance of God’s word sparks off the light, and illuminates around every dark area.

“The entrance of the word giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.” PS.119:130.

In most cases, God speaks best in the night when everywhere is quite. God voice is still, so He doesn’t speaks in a noisy and rowdy environment. Spiritual exercises are mostly effective in this period.

“After the earthquake, a fire; but the LORD was not in the fire: and after the fire a small still voice.” 1.King.19:13.

“Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.” PS.19:2

God’s moves can be rowdy but his voice is still.

However, it is what God shows you in the night that makes you a show in the day.

Knowledge is the key to freedom

Studying the wrong subject: most people are studying the wrong subject. A student who has mathematics exams studying English on the Eve of exams will surely not perform well. A good student should busy himself with the subject matter.

Likewise, if financial empowerment is your most pressing need, get the books that deal with the subject. If your concern is divine health or marital settlement, get the books that addressed the issues. Busy yourself with scriptural materials. You can listen to tapes of anointed men of God. This is the way to be free.

Knowledge is the key to freedom: Paul was a strong advocate for knowledge, Jesus’ custom was to read and Daniel understood by books.

“In the first year of his reigns, I Daniel understood by books.” Dan.9:2

And He came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stood up for to read.” Lk. 4:16.

“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needed not to be ashamed, rightly divided the word of truth.” 2.Tim.2:15

It is the quality of light that determines the quality of your life. Or better still, your light quality equals your life quality. In addition, it is the content of head that determines where you head.

“And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times, and strength of salvation: the fear of the LORD is his treasure.” Is.33:6

The scripture is the word of liberty, it set men free from all oppressions of the devil.

“Whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deeds.” James.1:25

 

 

Warnings! There are no shortcuts in life


You must be warned here that there are no shortcuts in life. If you do ritual, you will die before your time. Don’t ever take bribe from anyone. When you take bribe, you will  ruin your career.

A sign of caution

Don’t get involved in cybercrime, when you are involved in cybercrime, you will never enjoy a peaceful life. The fear of SARS (police) will kill you with no time. Don’t ever gamble. In most cases, gamblers end up selling up all their properties and ending up with nothing. As a mater of fact, study reveals that most lottery winners end up becoming cash stranded.

There are no shortcuts in life, “The blessings of the lord maketh rich and he added no sorrow with it.” Prov.10:22. Shortcuts will always lead to destruction. Don’t ever accumulate your wealth illegitimately. Wisdom says, hard work will make you rich while laziness will  make you poor. Wisdom is a mother of poverty.

We are in a generation of lazy people, people who want to ride big cars but they don’t want to work – prominent in this country – this has led to killings and shedding of the innocent bloods across the globe.

We have seen a case where some students were so desperate to eat excreta and slaughter their female counterpart like a ram in the name of getting rich. These students are so pathetic to discover that the herbalist who ordered them to carryout the act could not use the charm to get out from poverty himself. He doesn’t know how to use the bottom of a bottle to write ‘O’ letter (means that the herbalist is an illiterate). There case is a sorry case.

So many youth on our campus have entered into occultism with the hope of becoming rich and ending up loosing their lives at the end.

Go and learn something. Learn a skill. Learn Tailoring, barbing, cake baking, make up, fashion designing or any other vocation. Get equipped with an apprenticeship. God blesses you with the work of your hand. Don’t come to God with empty basket of no work.

Prosperity answers to value addition, discipline and capacity building, these are what we are talking about, they are what make financial freedom come to be. Obey God’s commandment by paying your thite and offerings. You must discipline yourself to the point of paying thite continuously. The first America billionaire, John D. Rockfeller was a thither.

Let everyone suffering in the house of the lord count on you. Get involved in kingdom promotion projects. Build a synagogue for Christ. You can serve God with your money by printing tracts and fliers. Promote the God’s kingdom financially.

When you do all these, poverty will no longer become your neighbour. Wealth you don’t work for will be of no value to you. This explains why many gamblers and ‘Yahoo boys‘ squander their money lavishly.

Financial prosperity answers to the covenant of seed time and harvest. You don’t expect the harvest of a maize without planting a corn. If you try to harvest a crop in another person farmland: If he catches you, your case will be worse than ‘Fulani herdsmen’.

Seedtime precedes harvest time. “But thou shall remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which sware into thy fathers.” Deu.8:18.

Picture of people taking justice on their own as a result of the ignorance of the victim.

If you have witness a jungle justice before in Nigeria, you pity those who are practicing armed robbery: If you see the way they do beat these perpetrators and in most cases they will roll tyre on their necks and burn them off. Moreover, the way SARS handle ‘Yahoo boys’, you will pity parents of these guys.

We are not in support of jungle justice.
The perpetrators of wrong acts will always end up in calamities.

Don’t be a foolish boy, your parents sent you to school to make a better future, and you are spending your 4years on campus aimlessly. Don’t be a foolish girl by becoming an  ‘aristole’ (prostitute) in school. Most destinies have been used by ‘Sugar daddies’ for rituals of wealth.

Live right!  It always pays to live right. You are meant to focus on your academics. Commit yourself to God by obeying all his commandments, read your books and study well. Excel in all of your exams and come out in flying colours. In the end try as much possible to graduate with good acceptable certificate.

There is nothing as sweet as success. A Failed life is not a life,  life is a lifetime; what are we going to remember you for when you were gone? By obeying God, you are storing up  a glorious future for you and your children – generation yet unborn – “To obey is better than sacrifice, to hearken than the fat of ram.” 1.Sam.15:22. Your children and children’s children will not stop thanking you for living right today.
