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 could be banished for life. How I wish there is a regulatory organization that would 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 the job or work “. At the end, what would 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.

A DEBATE:CHRISTIANS AND MUSLIMS 

A DEBATE:CHRISTIANS AND MUSLIMS 

   READ. STUDY. THINK. RESPOND. 

                       PREAMBLE 

Why the Christianophobia? Why the islamophobia? Why the hatred between Christians and Muslims? Do they worship the same GOD? If truly they worship the same GOD then, they will have no reason to be against each other. This will be obvious in such a way that, their unity will shake the world.—Akinrulie opeyemi Joshua 

In the beginning GOD never had any challenge in creating this world. He made all things without stress, you know why? Because His Superiority has to be known. He created mankind with equality, if not, He would have kept some human beings in His kingdom. In addition,He created some good surroundings in order to satisfy mankind yet, the insatiable concept still flows in the hearts of mankind. Has He not tried? If man was not created, he would have been under the existence of nothing . My number one focus is, the disagreement: What’s really going on between them (Christians and Muslims)? What a remarkable shame. 

   It is believed that,the conception of Christians is that, God is trinity (God.Son.Holy Spirit) and trinity is one. But,the conception of Muslims is that,Allah is God who has no trinity. The discrepant issue happening between these parties has grown to be an apparent encounter known as HATRED. Some marriages can’t be held because of these religious incompatibilities. Some couldn’t be employed because of these disagreements.These are few assumptions which I have seen on this earth, when will these atrocious notions stop? Are they not tired? The essence of a good future is for it to be peaceful, not for it to be destroyed before its arrival. In this case, the deed has been done.  


     If Christianity is a way of life in accordance with Jesus Christ  and Islam means peace in relation to Prophet Muhammed. Where is the violence coming from? To talk of a way of life is to be submissive in attaining a particular goal without violence. To talk of peace is to act in accordance with God’s instructions  without violence. Is God a violent God? If they won’t concur to make peace then,let the world forget about the abolition of war. Let’s look at this analogy below : 

     If Q is from P and R is from P. P decides to give Q and R the freewill to create all things for their own good. But, this freewill disorganized Q and R. Hence, they are battling with each because they have forgotten the ONE SOURCE. How about this? 

    Who is to be blamed? Is it Q or R? Is it P? What are they deriving from violence? A competition that will yield nothing but, something called hatred within the society should be banished with the proclivity of no return. Mankind should continue is dramatic journey because I feel every act is being recorded in order to invite the retrospect. If they are beautiful houses and places which are extraordinary in this world,imagine how the unseen will be. Both parties are not seeing things from this aspect,may be they are. A shame chained by a shame. 

   ” As I am writing this article I am getting tired because it won’t change anything. perhaps,I am not the first person to ignite this type of passion.”–Akinrulie opeyemi Joshua 

     I have heard and seen many visions about the conglomeration of Christians and Muslims. Can this happen? Can they settle this dispute? My wish, is for them to come together as one but,I am still wondering how this unrealistic motive  will be realistic. I am sure I am not dreaming,and if it’s a dream,it must real. For how long will they continue to battle? It is an easy thing to destroy but, peace will demand a long meeting. 

  Mountains are angry because they have failed to provoke themselves. Hence, the spirit of companionship left, and mountains became happy. One mind,many minds. If GOD had created the world with a mentality of destruction then, CREATION will be impossible. Have you thought of this? Death rate will be immeasurable and birth rate will be measurable yet, Christians fight Christians. Muslims fight Muslims. Christians fight Muslims. Muslims fight Christians. 

                        CONCLUSION 

  I have a lot to say but,I have to be conscious because of the reading culture. Perhaps,this is related to our society where we fight unnecessarily. People tend to defend their  faith with brutality, if where you are going is not certain,why engaging yourself in such an act? Even if, where you are going is certain there is need for you to solidify yourself lest  you fall. Because what I am seeing in this context is, SUPERIORITY. What progress have they made? They are just proselytizing people to embrace their BELIEF. If that should be the case, this should not be based on hatred. – – Akinrulie opeyemi Joshua 

    

“TEARS IN HELL”

“TEARS IN HELL”

                       PROLOGUE

I could hear the voices of no hope. I could feel the pains in hell through the earthly fire. I could see that the darkness which is about to happen to this  world is absolutely real with certainty. Even tears is regretting about the mission given to her. I am having a feeling, a feeling, you can’t feel. – – Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua 

   When all things are gone, what will be next? If we should assume that all things in this world are ordinary then, beyond will be useless. Did  we come into existence spontaneously? I am sure nobody will respond to this question by saying, ‘we came suddenly’. As a matter of fact, I am really worried about a place called “HELL”. Some people have argued that hell is not real, and if one is dead no judgement will be given. This has caused controversial speculations as regards the place of hell. Is hell real? If it’s real, where is it located? Heaven? Or where? The secrets of hell won’t be shown to many but few, you won’t be forced to believe the reality, keep doubting until it becomes real. Are you willing to think?  

   It is very pertinent to note that, if hell is not real, then, evil won’t come into existence. Hence, hell is real, if not, good would have no opposite called, bad. How did I know that hell is real? In rumours will you find an element of truthfulness, in fact, a rumour is a basic thesis of truth. Perhaps, if hell is not real, why do good? You can’t be doing good for nothing, there must be something yet, what I have observed for many years is that, nature don’t lie. There is a supremacy somewhere dictating the rules and regulations which nature must obey. I doubt,  if the hell in us will be able to tackle, the hell that is coming. Hell will be happy to accommodate all,a comfort zone in disguise. 

   I speak in parables and aphorisms. I don’t need to breakdown my claims. When Jesus Christ was alive in the flesh he expressed himself in parables, and if you are not coded, excellence might demand to evacuate herself. This has been the case of hell hiding under the canopy of goodness in order to win the hearts of people. If it has been said that, the kingdom of God is everlasting, how about hell? Don’t you think it will be an everlasting one? When you die for something that something might decide to help, when you die for nothing then, nothing will help you. Perhaps, hell will always be laughing 

       Lock the gates of hell. Give us the last chance to  obey the stipulated words. I know your fury is full but, remember you created us not for destruction but, to be your children in your Kingdom. If you destroy us, you have nothing to lose but, we have something to lose. Most people don’t realize this because of the free life given to them which will be accountable one day. I know as I am writing you are with me, investigating and monitoring my expressions. I know you won’t watch us go astray, I know you are trying all your best to save people, if all could dwell in your Kingdom I will be ecstatic. I am pleading for mercy. Please save us. Will you? 

                          EPILOGUE

  I am  not a preacher, I have only expressed my innatism. I am expecting something special whether it is real or not real. I believe life will be sacked one day, we can’t just pass away like that. Forever is not forever, surely, it will be over – – – Akinrulie Opeyemi Opeyemi.

GOOD GOD, FAKE PEOPLE 

GOOD GOD, FAKE PEOPLE 

                         PREFACE 

 6 and 9 are the same, it depends on which side you will like to choose . If you turn your phone upside down. you will see ‘6 and 9’ in the same actuality. Hence, reality is real. ” – –  Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua. 

     For how long will this fake people hide under the umbrella of deception?  How many years will they spend in this world tormenting and deceiving innocent souls? Yet, they will speak with the tune of truthfulness saying, God called them with a proof that can not be verified. If this God is  good, why must you lie against Him? On the mountains will they sleep. They will prophesy and exclaim loudly with some sugarcoated utterances all  in the name of God. People will be moved by their miraculous exhibitions because they  have  said, “thou says the LORD”  whereas God has  said nothing. Afterall, when He speaks there will be a strong evidence which man will not be able to understand. 

      As a matter of fact, if one understands the mystery of God then, He’s not God. What makes God unique is the hidden facts about Him which mankind can’t comprehend. This fake people won’t accede with this belief still they won’t stop deceiving the masses with their deceptive  truism.  If people won’t  seek for  lightness, will lightness be happy to shine without the concept of permission? Remember it has been declared that, ‘let there be light’. This fake people won’t pause at any time they will  proceed by seeking for supernatural power to back their missions all in the name of fame, wealth,and glory.  When will they repent? Many souls have fell,people are falling, and many will still fall.

    They will hide under the umbrella of God because He can’t be seen but a feeling of His presence is always the subject matter in man’s society . I won’t blame this fake people for embracing this concept(deception)  but, I would blame the vast majority seeking for a sudden miracle, thinking,God is a magician. Have you not heard about this? : “Draw near to God and He would draw close to  you.” In other words, if there is no constant interaction between you and the maker, you might fall for the deceptive utterances of this fake people. Have you not heard this saying? : ” My grace is sufficient for you”. Why beg for grace when you have one?   

      Miracles would soon cease, I would like to see how this fake people will succeed without their magical powers, yet some agendas have been made available to reduce the high level of ignorance but, some people have chosen the path of argumentum ad ignoratiam(appeal to ignorance). I guess, the inequality in the prima facie has played a vital role  in this world. As a matter of fact, originality is not easy to attain. A fake concept can be tinted with originality but, truth can’t lie because truth  is true. Is there any other word that can substitute “Truth” in a simpler form? Why fake it when you know the reality? 

  Listen to the words of some people : “ How would I be original when condemnation is the proclivity of my reward? Since the word ” fake” has invited me  to flourish without payment I would rather go for it. Afterall, the after life is not certain.Hence, let me act in  a fake way under the good God.” Are you ready for the consequences? –Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua. 

 ” All things might be informative  but, not transformative. If there is no transformation, what is the essence of the information? Do you want to live a life of once existed  but, no existence ? ” – – Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua. 


THE EVIL AND THE GOOD 

THE EVIL AND THE GOOD 

                           PROLOGUE 

If I am sleeping,  please wake me. If my thinking is wrong, please correct me. Evil and Good have brought uniqueness to this world. Willy-nilly, we have our choices to make but guided by a limitation which man can’t wrestle. – – Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua. 

     From the above quote will I bring my own arguments  as regards the concept of evil and good whereas some might use it interchangeably by saying, “GOOD AND EVIL”.   I am not writing this article to cajole or win the hearts of the masses but I am expressing in order to give my opinions about this ontological debate called, ‘evil and good’. I am sure that nobody will want to be in an auditorium of evil but if ‘good’ is given for free everyone will gyrate in her territory. Where is evil from? Where is good from? Their conglomeration or agreement would be like a mixed economy for the purpose of man’s realization. If I should tag God as evil, people will criticize my intention but if I should acknowledge God as the good one, people will jubilate with me without limits. Why is it the case that ‘evil’ has been attributed to man? Why is it the case that ‘good’ has been given to God as the supremacy? Hence, this is because His perfection can’t  be ridiculed. Yet I will ask this question, can’t I be like Him since He’s my Father? Mr X  wants  to be like his father. Or have we not heard this statement?  “Like father, like son.” Where there is evil, good will struggle and where there is good, evil will not struggle but their agreement will be fulfilled by death. What is the purpose of everything?  To be ‘good’as man implies perfection and to be ‘evil’ implies perfection. These two concepts in man makes him or her imperfect thus, man will continue to agitate for perfection. That is, man must claim or choose one side in order to obtain perfection. Hence, the presence of evil and good means imperfection. How about that? 

    If I have concluded to be good or evil, are my responsible for that? Is it the case that I am fulfilling and assisting a  mission which is unknown to me whether good or evil? How will I opt for evil and leave the good side? If truly this mission has been planned then I should not be blamed for my actions, in lieu of this, I should be appreciated for my contributions to life. This is also applicable to you. Isn’t it? If the genesis of evil and good  can be cancelled then people will rejoice afterall they will have the opportunity to choose the part and path they have been thinking. If natural disasters are regarded as evil, who will be responsible for these? God? Man? Devil? Man in his fear will quickly ascribe those evil occurrences to the devil since he has been named as a rebellious being. But,can the devil act and react without permission? Moreover, it is very vital to note that, what is natural is of nature. What is nature? Nature is the manifestation of what we can see but controlled by a supremacy greater than mankind. Are you still doubting? If you are a critical thinker without an extreme belief of religion you might get it right. As a matter of fact, fear might limit your level of understanding. Have you not seen the motto  of an “Acer laptop ” which opines “explore beyond limits”? 

        We are just struggling with these  two concepts because we do not know which is evil and which is good. What if at the end, evil was good and good was  evil. Can this be possible? We might think evil is evil and good is good , in such a way that we tend not to reason beyond because we think that should be a mere  definition for them. However, evil was created in order to draw mankind closer to the supreme being. It has been assumed that man lost his confidence when he disobeyed his maker thus, evil became a common issue and the only way to eradicate this, will be dictated by man. Must he be the one to rescue himself  ? Is it the case that his creator is napping? This can’t be. If  the creator possesses an absolute power then, He has the edict to change all evil to good. If that should be the case, why is man bothering himself to be good?  Do not mistake my arguments because I am not criticizing God. Afterall the concept of reasoning should be permitted. Nobody wants to be a friend to evil but if evil is not for man, who is evil for? Animals? Things? How do we tend to survive by being good when most of the  faces in this world are tinted with evil? 

                          EPILOGUE 

When good things are happening in your life always remember that evil is at one corner planning to also join the party. You can not always have ‘good’ afterall  ‘evil’ is like a debt. Beg who is coming to be quick. – – – Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua
