Avoiding Crab-Natured People

I lived among crabs for too long. Many human beings are like crabs. They are everywhere roundabout. You need not look far to find them. They are so close-by doing crab businesses. They are out to claw you down as fast as they can, at the slightest given (or not), opportunity. Their primary life goal is to determine where others belong. They must project & impose their self-will on you.

When you live among crabs, you get no encouragement nor support for good efforts. Crabs are intimidated by whatever you validly achieve on your own that gives them no glory.

Like many ministers, I laid down my life for some decades, providing all kinds of free services that others get paid for as a career, but God wanted it rendered as a servant & witness of Christ JESUS. I was a driver/transporter, photographer, secretarial-service provider, care-giver, life-coach, cleaning service worker, IT proficient worker, web designer, decorator, event organizer, musician, blogger, handyman, researcher, event MC/moderator, cinematographer, audio engineer, script writer/film producer, writer/publisher, delivery man, receptionist, promoter of talents, ministry leader, preacher, teacher, encourager, motivation speaker, prophetic guidance & counselor, graphic designer, advertiser, courier servant, relationship counsellor, etc. Ministers can be many things to people at own charge. We make ourselves run whatever errands that are necessary to see to improvement and enlightenment of lives, most of the time without thinking twice, and at personal sacrificial costs.

In civilized climes someone would take one of those skill-sets or free service rendered to give money or support. Such services as authorship, graphic design, systems analyst , computer/IT capabilities, would be indirectly engaged to indirectly promote or patronize the minister so he or she could become more successful, recognized, celebrated and get financial returns. Crabs have no such inclinations to pick something out of many as an excuse to help. They must take charge of you as they deem fit and redirect you as they selfishly choose, without really seeking your preferred advantage.

Crabs are final authorities unto themselves. Nobody must be ahead or above them. They even feel threatened by colleagues. They will drag you down. They have false self confidence. They consider it their role to cut others down to the size they sickly determine. Your personal goal does not matter to crabs. They assume your success index. And, they must redefine you to fit their own criteria. If you do not conform to their demands, they will tear you down to present a false public image of you.

They pose as friends. They are members of family. They can be colleagues. They sneak in on you like they needed you or you needed them. They can be so deceptively close to you like green snake in green grass. They blend-in with innocent victims like a chameleon does with its environment. They are friendly, undetected enemies that would inject poisonous thoughts and ideas to incapacitate your genuine progress.

If you ever find yourself in company of ambitious and competitive fellows who specialize in comparing self to self, run! Those are crabs. Nobody is successful around them except they say so. And they hardly say such, since they must be on top of the class.

Many crab-natured people don’t even know they got it. They operate in the witchcraft-motivated mindset, subconsciously.

To avoid crabs, learn to be true to yourself. Be highly discerning of the spirits at work in folks around you, whoever they are, or whoever they claim to be. Develop yourself in walking by the Holy Spirit. Obey your instincts more than you give charge of your life to someone else. Do not blindly entrust your life into any human being’s hands!

Avoid crabs. Avoid being a crab. Give God full charge of your life. Allow JESUS Christ to work in you, & with you!. Be at peace with eternal kingdom priorities. Be satisfied and content with your level, per time. Pursue reasonable plans for your own good. Seek the good of neighbors, as well, and, as much as you can. Celebrate, motivate, enhance, elevate, and, make life easier for others around you!

“We do not dare to classify or compare ourselves with some who commend themselves. When they measure themselves by themselves and compare themselves with themselves, they are not wise.” 2 Cor. 10:12 NIV

13 Relationship Nuggets – Hard Truths People Hate To Learn

God never promised us perfect relationships!
EVERYONE is a DAMAGED PRODUCT from BIRTH. We all need acceptance & help from others who would genuinely choose to give it all it takes! You are well-suited to HELP HEAL ANOTHER person!

Relationships fail when people choose NOT to mature. Immature people avoid reconciliation! It is immature to avoid healing of fractured emotion! The immature shuts-down communication that could help work out relationship differences!

It Is IMPORTANT To Be Involved In Improving Others! Life is usually miserable for those who prefer to eliminate others so as to promote LONE ambition! It is better to build LOVE someone or participate in building a LOVING community! Depression & suicide could be hard to contemplate when working hard at practical goals to help improve others!

Value others’ lives! You are not better off having others SUPPRESSED while you sit on top of the relationship pack. It creates tensions for you. If you love manipulation & excessive control, it would only backfire. Your insecurity, anxiety, worries & stress will multiply!

There is health in JOY! Joy is what you get when your investment in someone else results in smile, radiance & happiness. Give JOY & expect to get JOY back. Invest in a partner’s joy, in due time, God will satisfy & supernaturally return your joy, especially when you do it in God or Christlikeness!

No one make it in life without others! No one is without enemy! Not all adversaries can be destroyed! Grow up! Accommodate others! Give reasonable room for faulty people! Hopefully they learn right lessons from you before too long or too late!

Pathways of happiness, success, promotion & victory are littered with faulty folks who test tolerance limits. Build relationships! Everyone including yourself is a work-in-progress. Some difficult people are in place to improve your needed love capacity & human development relationship skills! No organization, entity, government or society develops without excellent people-management skills!

Life is about people! You only thrive in life to the extent you engage true LOVE to accommodate others regardless of prevailing faulty nature!

True LOVE is a spiritual ability that can be grown to increase emotional capacity for accepting others through high tolerance of their obvious deficiencies & non-obvious tendencies.

Life & relationship becomes stress-less when you master human-beings’ tripartite nature. Everyone can be Mental-nuts. Prepossessed. Divine-wrecks.

Again, nearly everyone is a “MENTAL CASE” with Caged Mindset, Preprogrammed Attitude & Lacking Divine Control! We all have to learn To Live With At Least One Such Individual! It could be a friend, a spouse, a partner or colleague!

God created human relationship to establish balance & order through companionship. An average person hates to be balanced/ordered!

Yeah! Celebrate singleness all you want. You were not created to be single but to actively work-out an intimate relationship! Haa!

Integrity Of A Witness

The Integrity Of A Witness Is Found In The Lifestyle!

The fruit of Christianity is not in material acquisitions and selfish posturing… the fruit of Christianity is in how each disciple or believer use Grace to CHANGE lives and INCREASE Christ’s Kingdom in their sphere of influence!

The integrity of a true believer is not found in mere words of beliefs, it is rather found in the testimony of the CHANGED messenger whose former messed-up life BECOMES a message for saving & transforming other lives on Christ’s behalf!

The integrity of any true WITNESS is undergirded by CREDIBLE lifestyle! How can anyone WITNESS Christ effectively without being CHRISTLIKE! You might want to tell the world that it’s not about you all you like, that it is all about Christ & His works. .. Yet the world that we live in today is not as interested in our 2000+ years old Bible stories as they are more interested in your personal story… You are the Bible that many want to read before they believe!

Are you really representing Christ???

Much Love!

Faith, Belief, Conviction & Religion

Differences Between Faith, Belief, Conviction & Religion.

(Quite Some Lines To Read. Please READ THROUGH CAREFULLY. It Will Help YOU!)

Belief is a body of information that a MIND is RIGIDLY SET on, rightly & wrongly. Conviction is belief transmitted from head-knowledge into a heart-based action-ready-mode. Many have fixed mindsets on beliefs they do not necessarily practice in face of life situational confrontations. Faith is right conviction that currently & actively defy contradictions in direct moment-by-moment partnership with God. God desires people who are full of faith or are faithful to LIVE BY FAITH!

Wrong beliefs that leads to wrong convictions & wrong actions births religion. Religion can also be based on right beliefs & conviction but lacking current interaction & engagement with God by His Holy Spirit. It is impossible to please God without right belief. Endeavor To Please God! Many church-goers operate in the flesh and not by Spirit-led faith. Faith is action-steps engaged because of inner conviction.

“Without active faith, it is impossible to please God.” Heb 11:6 “So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God.” Romans 8:6.

Faith is strengthened and grown by feeding on right spiritual facts. The more time a Christian spends on feeding on & digesting Gods words by the help of the Holy Spirit, the easier it gets to be propelled by deep-seated assurance of strong personal faith and not by presumptions.

Faith engages body of beliefs to practically seek a yet-to-be-seen impossible solution regardless of facts that are up in arms against it.

Faith is always seeking a premeditated change. It relies on unseen spiritual insight & guidance & patiently waits for the evidently seen to be overcome by the expected physically unseen.

“that ye may not become slothful, but followers of those who through faith and patient endurance are inheriting the promises.” Hebrews 6:12. Young’s Literal Translation

Faith is initiated in the heart of one who choose to act on God’s ability, knocks on God’s doors for divine-enabled answers, and waits on God for rigid physical circumstances to turnaround into a new testimony and miracle.

Bible faith keeps trudging on a lonely path to work out a change even when physical information or facts insists that it will not add up. The woman with more than a decade issue of blood problem, collected her miracle by personally motivated and inspired faith.

“And Jesus told the woman, “Your faith has saved you; go in peace.” Luke 7:50

Faith is spiritual insight that actively relies on God supplying desired outcome. Faith actively waits on internal guidance and takes bold steps throughout moments of hope, expectancy & turnaround.

Faith is not needed when expected outcomes are naturally certain. Faith does not underestimate physical facts, rather, it insists on superior supernatural facts derived from need for change, fired-up by right belief and convictions.

Faith is a human acting sensually foolish but with certain inner trust and continued assurance that God will show up with supernatural parts to what is hoped for.

“Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego replied to him, “King Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to defend ourselves before you in this matter. 17 If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to deliver us from it, and he will deliver us[a] from Your Majesty’s hand. 18 But even if he does not, we want you to know, Your Majesty, that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up.” Daniel 3:16-20 New International Version (NIV)

Faith is incomplete when it is all about what a human can accomplish without room for what God should add to the belief, conviction & faith equation.

Faith is usually a dangerous risky endeavor that only God’s answer or response can diffuse and turn into testimonies or miracle for the faith-actor.

Faith is not commonplace. It swims against natural inclinations for the most part. It can pitch its operator against friends, families and colleagues who most times would turn themselves into arch enemies.

Faith is a personal responsibility & engagement of divinity in human activity. Since it is rarely a secret engagement it will usually raise wrath of other close-by folks who will be intimidated, embarrassed or unhappy because of exposure of own lack of convictions.

“And Jesus said to the man, “Stand up and go. Your faith has healed you.” Luke 17:19 New Living Translation

Faith does not leave things to chance and ask God to fix things. Rather, it actively takes steps based on spiritually & scripture-ascertained information on what God already promised and assured that He will do.

Faith takes the promissory word of God on its face value and for what it is, and takes steps ahead of physical manifestation of the promise.

“Now Elijah the Tishbite, who was of the settlers of Gilead, said to Ahab, “As the LORD, the God of Israel lives, before whom I stand, surely there shall be neither dew nor rain these years, except by my word.” 1 Kings 17:1 New American Standard Bible

Faith is personal and not a follow-follow reaction to what others in religious believing-crowds are engaging in. Faith is engaged-in INTENTIONALLY, for moments of necessities.

Religion is the fake-faith or false-faith that engages automatic repetitive means & permanent ritualistic methods that are assumed to please God permanently.

Faith is a forward-leaning current daily/weekly engagement with God. It seeks to be current with God’s mind as they may be freshly revealed.

Religion is backward-leaning and is always trusting to repeat past traditions that once made God respond to man’s needs. God desires daily 2-way, heaven-earth, interactions with each one of those who believe in Him. He is known to change his modus-operandi from time to time and is NOT RIGID in mathematically repeating traditions. King David in the Bible never assumed battle strategies without consulting the oracles of God. He always asked and got divine directions for EACH day & battle. God’s answers to him were not always the same regardless that his situations or circumstances were very similar. Also, JESUS sought God’s face in prayers & fellowship, DAILY. Apostle Paul did not assume he could put God in a mold inspite of the fact he was extremely close to God.

“Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:13-14 King James Version (KJV)

FAITH IS FRESH DAILY 2-WAY PERSONALIZED INTERACTION WITH GOD. IT IS NOT A SCHEDULED PROGRAM FOR SPECIFIED BUILDINGS OR ROOMS.

While believers (those with mind set on specific beliefs) are in billions of population numbers, those with conviction (who are ready to stand up to faithfully resist contrary beliefs) are far in between numbers, and, people of faith (those who would pay some spiritual price and make necessary “sacrifices” like being labelled extreme, being outcasted for choosing to stand out, punished for spiritual choices, etc), are rare to find.

Where are you regarding belief, conviction, faith or religion? I am personally not interested in traditional beliefs/religioon. I am keen on having a lively faith in Christ JESUS and in relating with Him, freshly, daily. I have always leaned on faith for material, biological & spiritual provisions more than physical world promises. I have tried my best to get most of my Christian livelihood, results and testimonies by staying firm with my convictions. I want to always be found hanging-in-there on daily faith and trust in a living God rather than in what is physically available by evil-propelled corrupted compromising systems here on earth.

“It’s impossible to please God apart from faith. And why? Because anyone who wants to approach God must believe both that he exists and that he cares enough to respond to those who seek him.” Hebrew 11:6 The Message Bible

I encourage you to personally grow your faith in the LORD JESUS Christ. I am available to help those who may be interested. I can be reached inbox here on FB Messenger or by email to bishopolaa@yahoo.com. May God bless you more & MORE!

Dear Prayo – By Popoola Oluwatobi

Dear Prayo #00112998699_10153773374578303_7780017865098297913_n When you hear the Bible say that Jesus prayed so fervently that his sweat was like droplets of blood, if you didn’t know any better, you’d think Jesus was praying against the evil altar, demonic foundation, and the witches and wizards of his father’s house. I mean, what else can make a man pray like that? What else can make a man involve the totality of his person in prayer but for warfare against family stronghold? But alas, Jesus prayed so passionately and fervently, in bringing himself into alignment with God’s plan for His life at that crucial phase. But that doesn’t make sense. Does it? Ordinary God’s plan? And he was praying with so much energy? Isn’t that the kind of prayer you pray with your two hands in your pockets, mumbling in tongues as your mind wanders from coast to coast?
When you hear the Bible say that the apostles prayed so much that the place where they gathered was shaken, if you didn’t know any better, you’d think they were praying for money, promotion, or business breakthrough. After all, if we come this life, we no make money, wetin we gain? Right? What else can stir such fervency in prayer? But alas, they prayed so fervently that they may stay bold, and that healings and miracles may abound through them? Does that even make sense? Boldness to preach? And you are praying so fervently that the facility was shaken together? What kind of misinvestment of energy is that? Isn’t that the kind of prayer you should pray, looking at your wristwatch time and time again, so the prayer meeting can end and you can finally go home? You know, so much redefinition has been forced upon the sacred art of prayer, that many today who reckon themselves to be prayer warriors and are so perceived, would fail the Bible test of a sound prayer life. In some quarters today, when you hear the roar of prayers quake the environment and the sound take over the neighborhood, you can almost predict what the prayer point is. It’s either it is about household wickedness, generation curse, ancestral stronghold, evil foundation, or the almighty money. Raise prayers of consecration or for missionaries, and it’d almost be as quiet as the graveyard. Where did we get this training in prayer from? Who taught us? Jesus? Peter? Paul? John? Certainly not! Dear Prayo, what kind of prayer draws out sweat from your body? What kind of prayer draws out roars out of you? What kind of prayer draws tears from your eyes?
48187970_10156356719443303_6494773219147382784_n   Dear Prayo #002 You probably have heard of the term, catching a prayer burden. It is used to describe those moments in prayer when we are totally “out of control”. The prayee becomes consumed, as it were, with the prayer. Those are moments that come with diverse demonstrations. It’s either the individual is hitting is fist on the wall, or stamping his feet hard on the ground, or he bends down, or kneels, with his limbs in disorganized motions and many times, his veins protruding out of his flesh. Sometimes, it brings us to that place where there’s no more words, and there’s only wailings and heavy, deep intermittent sighs. Oh, such precious moments. But for grammatical correctness, you could almost say that in such moments, the prayer is praying the prayee. You see, such moments are not to be experienced only once in a blue moon. We should have regular moments in prayer, when all our hearts and our minds are totally immersed in the praying till it takes over our whole being. Such was the kind of moment Jesus had in Gethsemane. The writer of Hebrews says He prayed with strong cryings and tears. Luke was more lucid. Luke 22:44 KJVS And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground. And what was he praying for? He was at a very crucial phase of the reason He came. And there was the strong temptation to turn back. The pains…the sufferings…the agony was all ahead waiting for him. Yet all of God’s plan from the very beginning depended on His obedience. Oh, Jesus went to pray. And he stayed in prayer until strength and focus was renewed. He prayed away everything beclouding his sight. With much agony. When it was time to obey, the hesitation was all gone. You know…he told Peter, James and John to also pray…so they don’t enter into temptation. But they didn’t heed. They thought obeying God is something that’s very easy. They thought staying true to God’s plan is something determination can make happen. They learned the hard way. Much later in Acts, when they were bullied and threatened to stop preaching and abandon God’s plan, they knew exactly what to do…they went to pray! You see, the man who struggles with God’s plan is usually the man not given to prayers. If you find compromise appealing, something’s wrong. You can’t obey God outside a sound prayer life. You are already being tempted to turn your back on God’s plan for your life? The “successful” life of that your friend with whom you graduated is already making it look like you are stupid for obeying God? Fear, hesitation and struggles seem to be on the climb when God tells you to do something? My brother, get away from everything. Lock yourself up somewhere…and PRAY. I mean…PRAAAAAAAY. Not some tushed prayer o. Not the don’t-disturb-your-neighbour kind of prayer. Get far away. Go into a bush if you like. And pray the prayer. That kind that comes with a heart thoroughly torn and turned inside out. Pray your senses into obedience. Pray fear away. Pray away everything not making you see as clearly as you ought. Get into prayer and stay there. Obeying God is difficult. Prayer is what makes it easy. It gives us a divine perspective. Every odd thing becomes even in our eyes. We begin to see straight paths in a road filled with contours. We receive new eyes, so to speak. The man who will fulfill God’s plan for His life can’t depend on strategy and determination. Strategy will fail and determination will let you down. Peter was determined never to betray Jesus, but when the rubber met the road, he didn’t have to try too hard to betray Him. Prayer is the strategy. That’s what strengthens our will to stand strong and stay true till the very end. The praying man will not be distracted, and the distracted men will not pray. Have you been finding it difficult obeying God? Do it the Jesus way. Get into your Gethsemane. Let it all loose In prayer. You’ll return with strengthened resolve and and an undistracted focus. 48194717_10156356719453303_1708791492203511808_n The above message was approved to be published and permitted by The Author, Popoola Oluwatobi.
