SATAN

The world has no grace of giving people hope rather she is under the influence of satanic predictions. As a matter of fact, Satan is a god and I have been wondering why God gave him so much power to torment with such pejoration. The World is in shackles and obstacles, it is either you bargain or you lose all. But why?

It’s not the case that I am questioning the establishment between God and Satan, but my focus here is Satan. I have wondered about so many things and I have imagined beyond, yet I am still in the realm of the impossible. What progress have I made? As a writer and philosopher I always try as much as possible to be simplistic and write as if I am in that particular scenario, but this is not to prove that I know, it’s for the benefit of the audience.

The world is disorganized, yet nothing has been done to rectify those problems we are facing. Religion and politics are dominating enormously, each religion has their own savior. Bigotry and prejudice can’t be exempted from man’s thinking and If anything bad should happen some people tend to trace it to Satan and this uncivilized mentality is usually seen in Africa, the home of fanatical religion.

The same people would say, Satan is bad. As they tend to pray too much forgetting to work judiciously, they have turned God into a magician, so if what they have prayed for did not work out, they tend to raise an alarm saying, Satan is at work or devil is a liar. I am not saying that Satan is not in existence, but this African mentality as regards satanic forces has become a predominant thing, it’s as if the center of everything is spirituality. Yet, Satan will always be happy to accept newcomers.

Is it not obvious that those who worship Satan are performing exceedingly? Is it not conspicuous that those who have sold their souls are dominating all things? The rate at which some people are seeking money and wealth can’t be overemphasized. Desperation has sized their hearts, a choice is given, the utility should be applied to thinking and reasoning. Hence, the end is like a repercussion. Although, Satan gives joy that looks healthy, as one tends to rejoice after gaining money and wealth. As a matter of fact, the way one would spend the money would be as if there is a spirit saying, “you have a short life, therefore, spend without thinking of the consequences”. Is this not the case?

They have said since God isn’t willing to listen to us and activate our good intentions towards greatness, then, we would accept the criteria of Satan and register with his party. We don’t care about the outcome, we have waited for years, yet God has refused to answer us. Have we offended him? Have we not asked for forgiveness? What have we done wrong? Hope is gone. Grace is yet to be located. Everything is disappointing. Our trust which is the savior is not ready to come. What is our fate?

Satan has been permitted a long time ago to establish his throne on earth, he dictates the affairs of the world without pity, he roams amidst mankind without permission and even waging war against his creator. Well, the end will be interesting, but I hope it comes fast. As a matter of fact, don’t be dismayed, I believe one day the world would be relieved of her duties and we would see where people in there would be transferred to. I guess my thoughts are too imaginative, but whether they are or not, the thing is, the freedom we have still belongs to this world.

Let me predict the mind of Satan in the prima facie, as I put it below:

Satan speaks, my world has nothing to offer, but I will make it look as if it is meaningful and mankind will fall for it since his interest is to be comfortable on earth. I will make everything look simple, but in the end, I will give agony and disruptions. I will create a scenario whereas it’s for destruction, I know mankind will embrace it as a means of survival.

In addition, I will invent many things that will lure man away from reality. I will be god over them and I will make them feel more perfect than their creator. I will make them feel that their freedom and free will are unlimited, thus, they can be like God.

Many will follow me, many will sell their souls, many will sacrifice for me, many will forget the covenant they made with the supreme being, but it will be too late for them to repent, because I will make them feel it’s a normal thing to sin and it’s abnormal to be pure without an element of impurity. Woe to all the partakers.

To cap my expressions, it’s a choice and I will only play my role with normalcy, not by force. As a matter of fact, many people don’t know the power in their possession, thus, they focus everything on Satan, but there is a CHOICE given. Isn’t it? Although I can’t deny the presence of the spiritual world, it’s as if this has subjugated the continent called Africa, especially Nigeria.

You hear something like,” Satan must leave.” To where? Let me tell you one secret :

Deception is the reality in this world, at times you have to be abnormal and turn things that are good into bad ones for you to flourish. It’s either you endure and do the right thing, or be a friend to Satan. Which side are you, it’s now or never?

HAVE MY SOUL,TAKE MY FREEWILL

HAVE MY SOUL,TAKE MY FREEWILL

OPENING THESIS

There is something I have to admit in my life whether I like it or not, and I can’t do without it, that thing is, writing. Please I would like the reader to be attentive and follow each line judiciously, it might not make sense, but may be you can realize who you really are during that process. I will try as much as possible to use myself as an example so that the audience will understand my exegeses, well, that is the life of a writer whose mission is to express his thoughts, and if he’s a philosopher he must be ready for castigation and share opinions with others. As a matter of fact, if my purpose and freewill should conglomerate, don’t you think that would lead to MY PROPOSED VISION.

If you have a purpose try and embrace freewill which would catapult you to the land of fruition. But, have I succeeded in actualizing what I have purported? As some people would say, he that is advising people must be able to show us his good deeds. I am not here to say I am holy,or to say I have gotten to the land of my assumed vision. As a matter of fact, man should always try to be ambitious with dynamism. What is your purpose? Where is your freewill? What is your vision?

The aforementioned questions have been asked by many but I hope I would be able to answer them with satisfaction, if not, you can redefine those questions and find the part and path that fits you. This article would be interactive as I would ask some questions which would make you think beyond your capacity, but don’t be afraid those questions would be simple and easy in accordance with the previous questions in bold italics.

WHAT IS YOUR PURPOSE?

Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua explains, Imagine I have no purpose,imagine my creation has no meaning, how would I survive? What I engage myself in everyday counts in my life and if I chose to live in this world(ūüĆć) without a specific function, then what would be my end (ūüĒö)? These questions I have asked are not new as I am just trying to refurbish your consciousness in order for you to rethink your status. I know some people have been asking about the purpose of life and her essence, we don’t need to be lectured in order for us to perform purposefully. Yet let’s ask ourselves these questions : Is evil (ūüėą) a purpose? Are those performing evil deeds fulfilling their purpose? If they are, this implies that, they derive pleasure from evil acts. Is that a true purpose? Or they chose that act by the freewill given to them?

If all you do is to sit and see TV (ūüďļ) everyday, is that your purpose? If all you do is to go to night club everyday to dance, is that your purpose? How about gossip? Etc. I hope you haven’t assumed that you still have enough time (‚Ćö). Time has her own purpose too. Don’t joke with your life, because non-living things are begging the creator for LIFE.

Are you with your purpose or without?

WHERE IS YOUR FREEWILL?

It’s so sad that the freedom given to mankind can’t move beyond, if not, he would have gone to see his creator and come back to this world, but in as much as freewill is given, but limited. Hence, that doesn’t mean you should use it as an excuse, afterall you own your decisions. There comes a time in a man’s life when he would be tempted to question himself about his freedom,and how it would accede with his purpose. Have you not found yourself in that situation before?

Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua purports, although you have your freewill and you can decide whatever you want to achieve with it, but they are some certain people whom the creator has chosen as He tends to direct them towards the predestined creation, they might not be aware about it, they would think they are satisfying themselves so that the creator won’t have their time. It’s a pity that it’s a training for them, at the end, it would look as if they have the freewill, it’s an illusion, not a reality that can be achieved.

When I talk about freewill, what do I mean? Freewill is what I have chosen to do, that is my wish and desire. Right? Why is it that freewill isn’t free? Have you observed it? Now take a look at this below :

Will’ is what you want to do(wish or desire). ‘Free’ means you are liberal or unconstrained. Hence, we have FREEWILL. The ‘will’ there is an obstruction ,because it’s a task which you have decided to fulfill,if one should abandon his or her task in this contemporary world, I doubt if such an individual will survive in a world where death is free. As a matter of fact, when you add ‘free’ it becomes a struggle which you think you are free whereas you are not. The questions are : are you really free? Am I? If you can influence your decisions, you can’t influence the decisions of your creator.

Be vigilant, because freewill is tired of her duty.

WHAT IS YOUR VISION?

There is one particular vision you have and you have been waiting for the day it would come to pass. Well and truly, you have lamented within, you have cried outwardly at many places with secrecy. You have been told to present your purpose, freewill, and vision, so that they would be tinted to their own taste rather you succumbed to their request by saying, have my soul, take my freewill. But now, you are extremely deep in it. Although God can save you, that doesn’t mean that Karma would be silent about the Calamities you have committed. Fame is sweet, but the price is exorbitant.

Must you do something that is dirty before you get fulfilled in this life? Must you expose your vision to the world? Why not achieve it first, then party with it publicly. As I will end this article in order not to prolong the matter which might be boring if elongated.

Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua argues, it’s left for you to decide, no one will decide your journey, but I am afraid that the creator is the ultimate decider, I am sure you have heard this dictum before : man proposes, God disposes. If that should be the case, would it not be better for Him to have your soul and take your freewill. That day, it would be a funny scenario and tears won’t be much, but some people have said, “there is no point in having a freewill without prosperity. Hence, they said to the buyer individually,” have my soul, take my freewill. ” Would you do this? The choice is yours.

WHERE DO TITHES GO TO? 

WHERE DO TITHES GO TO? 

INTRODUCTION 

¬†It’s very important to scrutinize¬† how some people are being exploited in this contemporary society, however, some pastors who are ingenuine¬† still fake their identity because they know that the problem of man is spirituality. In addition to this, these pastors have lifted themselves to the apex of everything which allows pride to be ecstatic everyday, but they forgot their origin and they became intoxicated by money. – – Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua.

  For how long would mankind sit under the shade of deception? Where is the transparency?  As a matter of fact, I am not afraid to speak the reality. If I die, I will face my own judgment whether for good or bad, not saying anything at all would result to judgment as well. Let pastors, prophets, apostles, evangelists and other ecumenical beings say where tithes go to. How many poor people have they helped? Numerous or little?

I won’t castigate any body as I would be straight in my arguments, not in terms of fighting, but in terms of debatable conversations. Yet, where do tithes go to? Is the church an establishment for profit making?¬† You see men of God as the messiah.¬†Whatsoever they say always become your mantra, even if it would cost you a lot of money. Howbeit, you have failed to ask questions since they are God-sent, but as far as I am concerned all human beings are subjected to castigation.

They have been using different methods to usurping your little income, yet you are still poor. For years you have been in the struggle, but what you keep hearing are as follows : prosperity is yours. You can do exploit. You can break the chains. Etc. Have you asked yourself this question : why am I at the same spot? It’s not the case that you have not done the needful, but you see yourself as a slave to some pastors and other ecumenical beings. Have you not heard this? The truth will set you free.

   You have been living in a canopy of deceit. Is it not better to give the tithes to the needy? Is it not preferable to give your tithes  to orphans? How about the internal displaced persons? They have been preaching about the fear of God, but do they fear God? They will quote a particular verse which is so cmmon : Malachi Chapter 3 vs 10.  The whole congregation will be convinced after the sugarcoated utterances by their pastor, thinking that after the submission they will be in abundance. What a pity! As I put it below :

The people are credulous about this, they think they are satisfying God with the tithes, although they are. But, some people have abandoned love, in lieu of this, they have elevated tithes as a superior means of seeking the face of God. The instructions about His coming have been quenched all in the name of MONEY, POWER AND FAME. РРAkinrulie Opeyemi Joshua.                                                   

¬† ¬†Most pastors now emphasize solely on tithes as if it’s their mandate. As a matter of fact, tithe is not money only, it involves other things.¬†Truth be told, some people are being deceived because they fear God, but in most cases these pastors are seen as¬† supreme beings with a divine edict. For years, the status of some pastors has been perturbing my mind, in such a way that they have elevated themselves like a narcissist. Howbeit, I am not in the position to judge, but let them continue to deceive the people. The voodoo will dispel and the people under their ministry would be set free. – – Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua.¬†

¬† Since they have claimed that God called them to heal people with disability. How come they are still in that condition? They are not concerned about the salvation story anymore, but ‘tithe’ as regards to money is their basic sermon. Here are my questions :

Is it not strange that every Sunday when you go to church, after praising and worshipping plus a sugarcoated sermon. At the end, it will be ‘tithes and offerings’, even the poorest of all would give, but have you forgotten that some people borrowed money to come to church, yet they keep exploiting this naive people. The questions are,must tithe be in form of money? If it should be money only, how about those who don’t have money? Money has made it difficult to recognize good pastors. Hence, the truthful ones are not exonerated.¬†

 In addition to this, if you are a prominent person in a given society or country, then the front seat is yours. You will be rated extremely and be seen on social media like a god. The term tithe has been bastardized, I wonder if God is coming soon. I have been pondering about His judgment, perhaps no one is free yet. But my crucial pain is, how some pastors tend to secure themselves as political leaders, therefore using security men to guard  themselves,in such a way that, one must strive before seeing them. If I may ask, was Jesus Christ a private person when he was on earth? Did he make life difficult for people? 

¬† From the above questions some people might argue that during Jesus Christ era there was no cogent civilization, I agree with that, but did he not live a life of humility and simplicity? Perhaps, humility and simplicity shouldn’t be affected by civilization, they must portrait their usefulness. Yet, after using several dubious strategies to collect money from the people their humility will be auto-tuned to pride. Are they pastors or politicians?

I know I might not be making sense to some people, as they might be thinking that I am a messenger sent by the devil. But, must we see the truth and hide from her? I have been in the state of silence for many years, yet¬† some pastors have enthroned themselves as the owners of people’s income. Are they seeing Christ as their supreme mentor? I don’t think they are, but who am I to judge, I am just an ordinary writer trying to share my views as regards the execrable conditions meted by some pastors on the naive masses.

Things have really changed as Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua puts it, they promised the most high that their¬† humility won’t partner with stupidity, but they have been infected by material things and they have forgotten their ‘true call‘. In lieu of this, they have made their thoughts and decisions to become superior. What gain would it be at the end?¬†

¬† ¬† ¬† The time is coming when the masses would invade the church and question the pastors about their tithes and offerings, people would think it’s insanity,but time is waiting for¬† a call as transparency has been bribed and her expressions has been dwindled and ridiculed without an appeal, is it not obvious that the priority of some pastors is to safeguard themselves before considering their members. As the case may be, pride has become a normalcy within them, even the members respect them by worshipping them like GOD.¬†

¬† Who can take God’s glory? The term “I AM” is now theirs. They have made it an obligation that ‘tithes’ must be paid. I understand that the church needs to¬† be funded in order to put some things in place, but it should be unacceptable when some pastors are addressing¬† themselves like GOD and making all things compulsory. As a matter of fact, only GOD knows who is¬† serving him.

How I wish I can continue with these views, but it won’t change anything. Even in life, not all words will transform¬† people. I am not trying to judge Pastors or men of God, but if care is not taken all churches will become a worldly paradigm. Well, I have tried my best at this point, it is left for you to decide what you want and whose slave you want to be. As I put it below :

END OF DISCUSSION 

Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua argues, ” evolution and revolution have signed an agreement to storm the world and her occupants, but as regards the issue about ‘tithe’,¬†man is trying his best to rationalize within the concept of his thinking. Whether you pay it,¬† or not, that doesn’t mean you would be poor or rich. Believe me, some pastors are using these tithes for themselves only. I am not saying you shouldn’t pay your tithes, but you must free yourself¬† from mental slavery. Stop being dependent, be independent, because your mind is who you are.¬†

THE LAST DAYS OF ILLUMINATI 

THE LAST DAYS OF ILLUMINATI 

              THE ILLUMINATI 
  What else is left in this world? What is new on  this earth? I hope my thinking won’t kill me one day. But, for how long will  I continue to be a critical reminiscer? I guess it’s part of life to think about the past in order to avoid some futuristic mistakes, but I hope people won’t repeat the mistakes of others which they have committed as a result of the light, the pyramid, the eye, and the eternal. All these are symbols belonging to this occultic  group. I have no hatred for them, what I  am perturbed about is, the way they haven’t been able to tell their members the authentic truth about their establishment. All what I have been hearing is, they follow the aforementioned symbols which will bring them fame, fortune, wealth, and a lucrative job. In other words, you can have anything you desire.

   What gain is it if I don’t know what I am serving? The obscure thing about this group is, their mentality is positioned on earthly acquisition only. Yet, their members have failed to question  their suspicious identity in which they are  using to cajole people into their territory. Everything will continue to appear good in your presence, fame and wealth will always be at your doorsteps, but always remember that, it’s more than a trap. I will liken it to be a trap of eternity. As a matter of fact, this illuminati has not unveiled her true identity, and if you study their belief properly you would know that, they know that the over is certain. Kindly examine this definition of  “illuminati “ gotten from an English Dictionary :       

“An alleged global, elite, secret society which has  its ultimate objective the subjugation of humanity (world domination or New World Order).”

   Take a look at the words I purposely converted into a  small view, that is, the subjugation of humanity. From the definition you could see their purpose and mission, if that should be the case, what are they doing it for? Who are they doing it for? As they have claimed that they are not related to Satanism, perhaps one is permitted to worship any deity. Now, let’s examine the meaning of the word “DEITY” gotten from an English Dictionary: 

“The state of being a god; divine characteristics, godhead.A divine being; a god or goddess.”

 If the  above definition is true, then it is contrary to GOD’S EXISTENCE. Perhaps, when something is a deity it becomes tricky somehow, in such a way that, one is free to commit immorality. Let me ignite your thinking in order for you to understand my arguments so far :

   “Deities are real, because God is real, if not, these deities won’t be accountable at end. Hence, there is a God somewhere supervising all affairs which you know, but the mission of this elite group is, to subdue your thinking by making you assume you can act anyhow. Have you not heard this? If you do anyhow, you will see anyhow. “–Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua. 

  They control the world, so if you are planning to be a messiah in this world you must join the party. If you are not ready to sell, don’t even bother to buy. They are in their last days, so they need to bring  more candidates to their kingdom, I won’t judge them and I won’t say they are going to hell, If I do, I might upset my creator. The journey to becoming a star won’t be an easy one, yet you want to have the whole world, you want people to keep clamoring your name all the time. You want to be the talk of the town, what essence will it give? 

   A deceptive action tinted in a good manner, would  God allow you to worship anything? What “light” are they following? What “pyramid”are they following? What” eye”  are they following? What “eternal” are they following? Show your real identity and let people know your stand, let us know the  rights you have been claiming, if it is right, then, we can join you to fight for it. But, in a case where one is  not straightforward, what would you expect? Is it not deception? 

 

  It is as if most people aren’t aware of this particular organization, or may be they are, but they have underestimated their predominance. Truth be told, I could feel the pains of eternity struggling to end the world, she’s tired of all these disastrous occurrences. She has been begging the creator, because she’s angry. She wants to reign forever just as it has been ordained. But, the creator told her to wait for her time. Hence, time has been instructed to quicken herself. If that should be the case, the last days would appear like the tower of babel, but it won’t be completed, because it is a disguised concept created in order to obstruct mankind. They hid the truth and spiced it with deception for man’s consumption. 

  Honestly, all I know is, there is a God. Is not the case that He’s silent, He’s waiting for His time. You should know that, God has His own time. Some skeptics might ask me these following questions : how sure are you that there is GOD? Have you seen Him?  What if His existence wasn’t real? These few questions may put your mind to the state of doubt, but it is a conspiracy. If something is not real, why battling with it? Because it’s real that is why  they are finding different ways to end it. Their watchword is, “kindly sell your soul and acquire what you have been looking for. They will only show you the positive aspects, but when you are IN, the OUT will be difficult. 

   

    It’s a battle we have to fight, but either it’s for or against.  A battle that will take many lives, tears will be natural. How many lives are we  going to sacrifice? It’s so sad that the entire world has gotten to the stage of destruction, as a writer, what choice do I have? I have nothing to lose, but I have something to achieve. Yet, the illuminati has taken over everything , even using some churches as a tabernacle of atrocities. What choice do you have!!! Tell  me, when everything has turned into a comic state, we tend to laugh at everything, thinking it is, whereas it’s not. As a matter of fact, mankind will continue to joke until reality becomes angry. If she is, nobody can beg her to return to her normal state. 

   I hope you are following my explanations so far, don’t be carried away by the displays happening on earth, it’s a strategic distraction. Let’s ask ourselves the following questions : why offering fame and wealth when they won’t last? Why not offer the kingdom of God? Why offering war to attain peace? Must it be bad before it can be good? Why must I sell my soul in order to acquire the world? All these questions should be set just like an alarm which wakes us everyday, if the human life is short, and nothing will be taken after departure, then why should I buy a shaky happiness? 

 ” As long as we live on earth, the only choice we have is, to decide within, whether we like it or not, it is a trap created for us. The debt has been paid already, it is left for us to use the opportunity to correct all abnormalities. At times, I tend to question myself severally, may be, I have been  infected by rigorous thinking. It looks as if the world is dominating the world, not God dominating the world. As a matter of fact, if you have sold your soul, kindly reclaim it, because time would soon be replaced with eternity. “- – Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua.

    THE LOST CHURCH 

    THE LOST CHURCH 

    ¬† As for those hiding under the canopy ¬†of¬†God, It is time to speak the truth and let the vast majority know your status in this world. I know it won’t be easy because of the fame and wealth ¬†you have acquired, but this is a final warning to mankind and also to the writer, if I am not truthful and I am doing the things that don’t please GOD. He will take the decision,if He takes it, what will be my next hope? If that should be the case, how will these fake men of God be judged? ¬†Some men of God whose mantra have changed from salvation to prosperity. They have forgotten the main purpose God called them for, what a pity. Where is your love for salvation?¬†

    ¬† I am not afraid to speak because it’s only God that can be exempted from criticism, but in as much as we are humans and we live in this world castigation is constant. But, where is the zeal of the church? Where is the oneness? They ¬†have forgotten salvation,they have elevated ¬†the wealthy class in the church to the extent that, they even sit at the front all in the name of money. What would a poor man do? A poor man who has no money to comfort himself will definitely feel inferior and seek for solutions to his penury life. Is the church still alive? If God preaches equality, why are you struggling to yield to this word?¬†

    ¬† ¬†Where are we going? Even on social media when the name, “God”¬†is being mentioned less attention is given, but when it comes to gossips,people tend to react positively by contributing immensely. If X is ¬†a product of ALLAH, X ¬†will definitely speak about Islam.¬†¬†Hence,if Y is a product of JESUS CHRIST, Y will surely speak about Christianity. Some pastors are deviating, they have become an advocator for the devil with a garment of God. This has become one of my former articles titled “MISLED BY PERCEPTION“, what is really going on with all churches?¬†

    ¬† ¬†Are they really preaching salvation? Have they forgotten this assertion in the Bible, “seek first the kingdom of God?”. In this contemporary society, some pastors are expressing what the congregation want in order to earn respect and wealth, as for them what you wear doesn’t matter, in as much as God always looks at one’s heart. Hence, you are welcome. As a matter of fact, the establishment of a church has become a lucrative job for some people, no wonder it is written, “many are called, but few are chosen“. ¬†When the time comes those that ¬†are real will be known, there is no place created that is hidden.¬†

    ¬† ¬†I don’t know how that day will look like,but I think ¬†that the systematic operation ¬†on that day will accommodate all human beings, so that judgment will be given to everyone. I am not judging anyone neither am I castigating anyone, as long as you are a human being you are subjected to criticism which is not extricable. A world where we have several churches with different doctrines and approaches. What else is left in this ¬†world where churches fight against each other? Can you sense or feel the end of all things?¬†

    ¬† Even those worshipping in truth are beginning to deviate from the truth, because the church has fallen apart, yet who will recall and revival the unity of the church? To add to this exegesis, some churches do fight all in the name of tithes and offerings, they have pocketed salvation and they have replaced it with money which alerted evil, may be they have forgotten that, “the love of money is the root of evil“. They have switched off their light of consciousness because of this worldly pleasure. Time is ticking, God is waiting. Are you ready?¬†

    ¬† ¬†When the time comes everyone will know the true means of assessing God. He will be the one to clarify how He has been making everything to work Judiciously. There will be no two sides, but one. It depends on the side you are now. Some ¬†pastors, prophets,and apostles should be ready for confrontation, the question will be,how did you lead my people when you were in the world? This question may bring tears or joy, it will be like ¬†a particular moment in a movie when a flashback is being used to show one’s deeds, how I wish there will be a place of remedy, but the only remedy provided is this world.¬†¬†

    ¬† ¬†Honestly, this world is getting sick, especially the way religion is overtaking every scene. If you claim that heaven is sure for you, ¬†always remember that you are in the world of ¬†SIN. You are not perfect neither am I, for you to remain in holiness you must always be conscious all the time and relate ¬†with godly people. But, this world is a mixture of different human beings which you might get provoked any point, in a nutshell reviving the church will cost years of sacrifice because “evil and good” are now friends, only GOD can purify the church. – – – Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua.¬†

     

       Finally, at this juncture I will like to vacate this scene, so that the audience can think about this. As a matter of fact, all my articles are always short and straightforward, but at times they may require a critical thinking. The church is lost, who will recall her? Is God quiet?

     

     

     

     

     

    ¬†Dear God, please don’t watch us deviate from your rules and regulations, the world is engulfed with hatred, war,killing and other atrocious things. When are you coming? Today? Tomorrow? Next week? Next year? The church you established has been divided physically and spiritually. When will you come? THE CHURCH IS LOST. – – – Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua.


    IS POVERTY A SIN? 

    IS POVERTY A SIN? 

                THE 80TH ARTICLE 

                   INTRODUCTION

      Before proceeding into this controversial topic, let’s know the meaning of these subject matters : what is poverty? What is sin? “Poverty is the state of being poor or to lack something while sin is to do something that is considered wrong according  moral  or religious law”. – – Merriam Webster Dictionary.

                      MY ARGUMENTS.

     This article came as a result of some people proclaiming this statement that, “Poverty is a sin”. Although no one will want to dance to the tunes of poverty, but in a case when people who are in abject penury are agitating in order to break the chain of poverty we shouldn’t say poverty is a sin, to say that poverty is a sin implies that, anyone who dies in poverty has committed an offense and will be judged by the supreme being without pity. It’s not the case that such  individuals have not worked and struggled, but X wasn’t rewarded on time. Will X be blamed for this? Who is to be blamed? 

      This common statement “Poverty is a sin” has disorganized the thoughts of many, even some people have engaged themselves in ritualistic thinking. When you emphasize mainly on this,the vast majority who are under your ministry will have no choice, but to start searching for options which would  lead them  away from God. I don’t think God will be happy with this, perhaps the foundation of this world was not  laid by wealth, but by words. If that is the case, use good  words to transform your life. To say that ‘poverty is a sin’ is to threaten the audience to do anything to get wealth. There should be a way to say this.

      As a matter of fact, it’s better to say, “Poverty is not an option, don’t be comfortable with it”. How about this? Gradually, they will start thinking about how to enhance and enlarge their coast towards acquiring wealth, because poverty is not an option. What I would like to ask the audience is, can a person who is serving God truthfully be in poverty? Don’t we have some cases where there are such individuals? If such individuals die in poverty, it has been said that they shall inherit the kingdom of God. Is this true? If this is true, then can we say that the foreordained is at work? That is, their lives have been created with poverty in order to see God at the end. Is this real? 

     Yet, truth be told, poverty is not good. What poverty does is to create an immature thinking by decorating it  with a matured thinking. If X is infected with poverty anything he or she sees will be good, perhaps poverty doesn’t give options, she gives restrictions. If X is wealthy he or she will have  options and restrictions. Let me tell this secret: wealth has the power to create poverty. Remember this word “power”. 

        What I am bemoaning is the way some religions assert that poverty is sin, therefore putting their ministry in danger. It would have been better if the word sin is not included, because it is, this belongs to the realm of religion. Howbeit, repressing on  the aforementioned statement won’t assist the vast majority in structuring their future, rather it would instigate them to engaging themselves in some unscrupulous acts which the devil might benefit from. In an arena where prosperity is always their mantra, salvation will be forgotten. All what I have been hearing is prosperity, perhaps who does not want to be in wealth? Who will like to live in penury?  Who will volunteer and pray for poverty increment? 

        The more they hear that poverty is a sin, this will encourage them to do the unexpected. If poverty is a sin, then anyone who dies in poverty will go to hell. Is that the implication? In as much as it has been assumed religiously that no sinner will be welcomed by God on judgment day. Hence, all those in poverty will be cast out. If God should judge by using this criterion, then He won’t be God anymore. Yet, man tend to hide himself under the umbrella of God by saying, “Poverty is a sin” whereas He has not said so. Is it their wish to be in poverty? How will something bad be convenient for them? Yet, the best thing some set of individuals can do is to frustrate and add to their disaster. 

       Is it their choice? If you were to be given the opportunity to choose anything in life,will you choose poverty? What will come to your mind is wealth. I need to make it clear in my few words, I don’t know maybe I am right, afterall everyone is entitled to express or postulate opinions. I want the audience to follow every line, because it might and might not involve a critical thinking. Check this below 

      
    We are in a world where everyone must fight for survival. The rich wants to be wealthy. The poor wants to be rich. To deteriorate the matter, religion added her doctrines into the hearts of people,by using the bad aspects to bring good things,instead of using the good aspects to send bad things to exile. As a matter of fact, how I wish poverty can be banished for life. How I wish there is a regulatory organization that will make wealth to be a common acquisition. Well and truly, it has been asserted that, not everyone will be wealthy which also implies that, some people are meant to be in poverty. But, what can be done? I have noticed that it’s not the case that some wealthy individuals don’t want to help, but they are afraid of dethronement. Who will rescue them? – – Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua 

      

      Truth be told, all what the world has been saying is, money. What makes you go out everyday? Some might say, “I don’t even care about the money, but it’s just that I am passionate about it”. At the end, what will be the result? If money will not end it, then be ready to create a nation of poverty. Finally, to erase poverty, let your mind be engulfed with an assumed wealth.
