Why God is Not Answering Your Prayers



Many people believe they can be living in sin and expect God to answer their prayers. They like to do things their own ways and expect to find the mercy of God. No, God doesn’t work like that!

“I want to heal Israel, but it’s sins are too great. Samaria (Nigeria) is filled with liars. Thieves are on the inside and bandits on the outside! It’s people don’t realize that I am watching them. Their sinful deeds are all around them, and I see them all” Hosea 7: 1-2

See What Happens When God Takes Control of Your Life



“I will cleanse you of your filthy behavior. I will give you great harvests from your fruit trees and fields, and never again will the surrounding nations (problems, trials, tribulations) be able to scoff at your land for its famines” Ezekiel 36: 31

When you have pleased God, He will finally accept you as His own. He said he will give you profits for your hard labor, he will reward all your efforts, and never again will you be affected by the negative situations surrounding you.

“Then you will remember your past sins and despise yourselves for all the detestable things you did” Ezekiel 36: 31.

You Can Rise Again (Ezekiel 37:1-14)



“The Lord took hold of me, and I was carried away by the spirit of the Lord to a valley filled with bones. He led me all around among the bones that covered the valley floor. They were scattered everywhere across the ground and were completely dried out. Then he asked me, “Son of man, can these bones become living people again?”

“O Sovereign Lord,” I replied, “You alone know the answer to that”

Then he said to me, “Speak a prophetic message to these bones and say. ‘Dry bones; listen to the word of the Lord! This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Look! I am going to put breath into you and make you live again! I will put flesh and muscles on you and cover you with skin. I will put breath into you, and you will come to life. Then you will know that I am the Lord”

Message for Pastors and Men of God



The truth is that it is not a sin if as a General Overseer or a Pastor you have vast land, properties, jets etc. as long as you used your personal resources to acquire that wealth. I mean as a pastor, there is nothing bad if you have a personal business you finance with the money you made from working for another organization, maybe you were a banker, a manager somewhere before you became a pastor, or maybe you even an Entrepreneur as you also do your pastor work.

But it is against the laws of the Almighty God for you to amass wealth with the resources people have brought to the house of the Lord. If you convert the resources brought to God’s house for yourself, man of God, you are sinning very greatly.

Why Politicians, Traders and Business People Should Not Cheat



“For this is what the Sovereign Lord says: Enough, you princes of Israel! Stop your violence and oppression and do what is just and right. Quit robbing and cheating my people out of their land. Stop expelling them from their homes, says the Sovereign Lord. Use only honest weights and scales and honest measures, both dry and liquid” Ezekiel 45: 9-10

This message of the Lord is not only for the people of Israel it applies to everywhere on this earth, particularly here in Nigeria. God is telling politicians to stop oppressing the people, stop this violence. Stop cheating your people, stop these oppression.

Refuse to be Corrupted



“Then the King ordered Ashpenaz, his chief of staff, to bring to the palace some of the young men of Judah’s royal family and other noble families, who had been brought to Babylon as captives.

“Select only strong, healthy, and good-looking young men,” he said. “Make sure they are well versed in every branch of learning, are gifted with knowledge and good judgment, and are suited to serve in the royal palace. Train these young men in the language and literature of Babylon.” Daniel 1: 3-4

Why Your Enemies will Bow to You



In Daniel 3, King Nebuchadnezzar passed a decree that everyone living in the land must bow down and worship the gold statue made. Everyone must bow down and worship when they heard the sound of the horn, flute, zither, lyre, harp, pipes, and other musical instruments. Anyone that refuses the order is to be thrown into a blazing furnace immediately.

But these three young men, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego refused this order because they know the laws of the Most High God and have respect for God’s laws and decrees above any law of man.

Report soon got to the king that the three men refused to obey his instructions. In his annoyance, the king ordered that the three be brought before him and he said to them,

When God is with you (Ezekiel 34:25-31)



“I will make a covenant of peace with my people and drive away the dangerous animals from the land. Then they will be able to camp safely in the wildest places and sleep in the woods without fear. I will bless my people and their homes around my holy hill. And in the proper season I will send the showers they need. There will be showers of blessing”

When you are serving God sincerely and doing His will, He said He will make a covenant of peace with you. There will be nothing like disease or suffering for you because God will take care of everything that pertains to you.

Prayer against Oppression



But the Lord stands beside me like a great warrior. Before him my persecutors will stumble. They cannot defeat me. They will fail and be thoroughly humiliated. Their dishonor will never be forgotten.

O Lord of Heaven’ Armies, you test those who are righteous, and you examine the deepest thoughts and secrets. Let me see your vengeance against them, for I have committed my cause to you.

Punishments for False Prophecy (Jeremiah 28)



“And it came to pass the same year in the beginning of the reign of Zedekiah king of Judah, in the fourth year, and in the fifth month, that Hananiah the son of Azur the prophet, which was of Gibeon. Spake unto me in the house of the Lord, in the presence of the priests and of all the people, saying, Thus speaketh the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, saying, I have broken the yoke of the king of Babylon” Jeremiah 28: 1-3

This happened when the Israelites had been taken captive by the king of Babylon, Hananiah did not hear from God but because he wanted to make the people happy he gave them a consoling prophecy which he claimed came from God. He said God will restore Israel and break the yoke of Babylon. Even prophet Jeremiah said amen to his prophecy.
