Living In Containment? There Is A Way Out!

Everybody was conceived in containment. Most people will live and die contained. A mother’s womb is a container. The earthly realm is a container too. JESUS had to violate our containments. He broke into our world so he can show us how to live above and beyond the powers that birthed us from the womb and the powers of the earthly realm that we live in. A truly born-again believer can live physically in our corrupt world and its evil systems, but yet operate spiritually from heavenly realm, above earthly containment!

Refuse to be contained by friends, family, neighbors or society! Discover how to live your life to the fullest in JESUS Christ!

MOTHER’S WOMB/ADAMIC NATURE CONTAINMENT

The atmosphere and condition of a mother’s womb is the first container that defined how every human is shaped and formed. Jacob & Esau shared the same womb. Rebekah the mother and owner of the womb later controlled the nature of each of these children. One was contained to live deceptively, coyishly, and as a successful trickster, while the other lived a straight-forward life that was contained outside ownership of his birthright.

Both Jacob and Esau lived all through their lifetimes conscious of the failings of their father Isaac and the controlling (bewitchment) power of their mother. If we were to read the end-of-life tributes from Jacob and Esau about their mother, based on how she imposed her will on the directions that shaped their individual destinies, one might rightly bet that one tribute would be glowingly favorable to the departed mother while the other would not be so favorable.

Each human life is contained and controlled by contributions from parents, or lack of it!

In the Bible, a search for the term “from the mother’s womb” would reveal stories about those who were born blind, lame, incapacitated in one form or another, as well as those empowered by the Holy Spirit from the mothers womb. Examples of the later includes Jeremiah, David, John the Baptist, JESUS.

Every life will be conditioned positively or negatively first of all from the mother’s womb. If the controlling powers that defines human birth is not altered, such a person would live and die in a predictable fashion that has ascertainable delimiting boundaries and parameters. This first life containment is the Adamic Nature. Are you still living Adamic-nature-contained?

CULTURAL CONTAINMENT

Another life-container is popularly known as culture, heritage, and inherited traditions. Most people are living enveloped, contained & controlled by a cultural container? Unknown to most people is that fact what they celebrate as the best culture in the world is basically a geographical and genealogical containment. There is nothing about any culture that should be projected above any other. Each human culture has its good and evil. Every other culture has one good thing or another that can be adopted.

What is regarded as culture, today, is the defining of environmentally inherited custom, tradition and way of life that a child woke up in. Waking up to be trained and raised in a particular setting does not guarantee it as the best pattern of living in the world. JESUS was here in the world to challenge prevailing cultural practices of his time. The best culture for our world, today, would be an objective aggregation of the best of the best of world cultures. Going by the Bible, the best culture to live-by would be that defined by the Holy Spirit. That can be learnt by walking supernaturally in and with the Holy Spirit.

The environmental culturing of people’s minds make them inculcate certain rigid belief systems and pattern of thoughts. Such entrenched thinking pattern determined how individual choices and decisions are arrived at. Those choices and decisions drive people’s attitudes, pursuits and actions towards repeatable results. Repeated predictable results becomes experience that are habitually engaged again and again. When people congregate along similar habits and experiences, a community with similar expectations are formed. They can become a family, clan, tribe, city, town or even countries that would ultimately make commandments, decrees, and laws to CONTAIN those who are introduced into their walls & borders. Years and years of enforcement of similar orientations and imposition of shared mindsets, used in making laws and moral codes, soon becomes documented as heritage. Whenever a new soul is born into that cyclical environment, he or she grows up to not know any better. Such newborns grow up to cherish the culturing containment as the only one that matter the most.

Qualities of human interactions, relationships, marriages and raising of children are directly impacted by the kind of cyclical mindsets of the prevailing cultures of those training and imparting such. Two human beings trying to work-together, mingle, or marry across different cultural upbringings will always have to work hard at merging their concreted cultured cycles that formed hard-to-adjust, and unchanging, inherited mindsets, varying thinking styles, experience and end-result expectations.

The culture of JESUS Christ kingdom is not Jewish, Islamic, Caucasian, American, Middle-eastern, Asian, European nor African! In that kingdom, white, black, or any other human-defined colors, are embraced equally. Male and female are regroomed away from earthly containment in accordance to submitted will-power and compliant obedience to new spiritual guidelines and directions. The kingdom of Christ JESUS is defined by the unseen, unearthly, unnatural Holy Spirit, who does not discriminate by place of birth, race, disability, creed nor originating culture. Everyone in JESUS Christ Kingdom are RE-CULTURED alike by the Holy Spirit, if yielded to, permitted and allow to FULLY FUNCTION!

RELIGION BEWITCHMENT & CONTAINMENT

Beyond “mother’s womb”/parental container and cultural indoctrination container is Religious Bewitchment. Most people immediately think of witch or witches when the word bewitchment is sounded or uttered. Bewitchment need not lay emphasis on the human being used, but on the unseen-realm systemic powers and controlling force at work behind the witch or human being.

Paul the Apostle exclaimed a query to a large congregation of Christ worshippers in Galatians 3:1. Who has bewitched you all? Who made you behave foolishly, heretically, consistently, when you should be full of divine wisdom? He asked, bewildered!

The people were acting scripts outside the norms of Christ JESUS. They were displaying blatant disregard for better sense of judgment. They had seen better, had evidences of better, but, they acted religiously bewitched and contained. Religion is described as ritualistic approaches to worship God in ways that are non-personal and non-fresh. True faith is a daily-fresh, direct and personal interaction with God that is devoid of obsessive human intermediary or interference.

By the way, every religion on earth is an awe-filled reverence and repetitive practice of certain indoctrinations that seeks to please the maker of heaven and earth. Some other religion extend worship to smaller spiritual entities that are tied to certain physically sculpted hand-made images or carvings or sacred objects. Those smaller gods are worshipped as intermediaries to the ultimate God. It is only by true faith in JESUS that anyone can claim to want to live freely as God’s son or daughter, and to engage life as though they are God themselves. Jesus was persecuted and executed for practicing and preaching that particular out-of-the-box, outside-of-containment, message to people. Many in religions were contained to believe they are God’s slaves or God’s “will-less” entities who have no say but to be under permanent use, whether they are willing or not. It is only in Christ-JESUS-worship that people understand that God respects human’s power of choice and willpower. And, that God leave his adherents to become His own image and likeness by own sense of acceptance and judgment.

While religion help many escape from parental and cultural containments, most people are unable to flee religion containment because that is considered and regarded as a taboo with serious vengeful consequences from the relevant worship-centers, communities and societies. Most people on earth live and die within these first three life-containments, satisfied that it was the best of life for them. Nobody expects anything better than what they have been contained to believe and practice.

There are other kinds of containments.

Self-imposed (lack of wisdom, Indulging Ignorance, Refusing fresh education, Accommodating Spiritual Blindness, Low self-esteem, inferiority complex and other kind of negative attitudes) Forcing self to fit-in to human expectations is a sign of living within confining containments.

Territory-Imposed (Every territory impose physical and spiritual laws, principles and rules to contain dimensions of expressions permitted or forbidden within their borders. Paul the Apostle says for WE WRESTLE against such territorial powers. The geographical location you find yourself living in, contains the extents of your achievements in life.

Relationship/Association-Imposed (sibling rivalry – joseph, comparing & competing friendships, limitations from marriage partner, workplace allowed restrictions, toxic human influences. Jacob had to pray to overcome his containments in Genesis 32. He received supernatural power to prevail spiritually and physically with God & man.

More kinds of containments are

  1. Sin-Imposed

2. Spiritual Deficiency Imposed

3. Poverty Imposed

4. Fear Imposed

5. Ill-health Medically Imposed

Example Of Freedom From Containment Is JABEZ

Like Jabez in the Bible, most human beings are constrained to conform to preexisting spells, curses, predictions, declarations, premonitions, decrees, modes and constructs that spiritually shape and fabricate containers for how their lives MUST play out. Jabez was born and named after his mother’s birth-pain sorrows. Names predict people’s qualities of lives. Jabez was playing out the predetermined containing script until he figured he could live above it through prayers of deliverance, to God. He finally rose above his containments.

Many have assumed wrongly how a preachers message should be written or transmitted. Most in the word-based community have said it should be about quoting scriptures copiously and thereby letting scriptures interpret scriptures. While there are places for such opinion and practices, a preacher should determine whether he wants to be contained by traditionally passed-down approaches or be freshly inspired to do whatever the Holy Spirit permits. Someone once commented that I write to minister to people as though I was a journalist. I definitely would not categorize my method of writings to be as a social critic, event commentator or social media pundit. But, I write as well and as fluently as I can, to speak clearly from my mind, like any regular human being. In my view, the portions we quote from the New Testament part of the Bible today were first penned as letters or what you may call opinion articles, but they were later canonized as scriptures. They were not written with a view to be quoted spuriously. They were written to make clear sense to their generation and times,

WE CAN ACHIEVE A QUALITATIVE & GOOD LIFE IN JESUS CHRIST – OUR MESSIAH

There are many dimensions and experiences that we can enjoy in this life and lifetime, through JESUS Christ our Lord, Savior & Master. JESUS refused to be limited to our natural life containments. He came to liberate those who would find the inner strength & courage to spiritually stretch themselves and refuse to be naturally contained.

In Christ JESUS, we can purposefully pursue an unlimited life that consciously rises above constraining natural laws, principles, practices and conditionings. We can live quality lives by supernatural endowments. We can build working relationships and families by insightfully wading through identifiable containment obstacles. We can choose to be educated to identify, and overcome containments by the words of God and power of the Holy Spirit.

FAMILY, FRIENDS & RELATIONSHIP WILL PULL YOU INTO CONFINES OF PERSONAL, MENTAL & IDEOLOGICAL CONTAINMENT

There is an aspect of this containment message that has to do with fellow human beings. This has to do with everybody who tries to drag others into their own contained spheres of mindsets. Everyone’s world is composed of personally recorded mindset of how they have been contained to view this world. Each one has become so convinced that his or her own world-view is the perfect frame that everyone else must be dragged-down into. Many are unable to identify their own containments and how they are far from being the role model to emulate. Most people are not open-minded enough to know that what they considered as the best mind-frame is worse than others. They do not give second thought to how they may be wrongly programmed while being cock-sure the other person is the one in need of corrections or being dressed down. They refuse to rightly position themselves in a way they could learn to rise up to others’ levels. They refuse to accept that they are no better expert than the next one who epitomizes self as the best expert too. Most people are too sure their personal containment is best-suited for everyone else. It has to imagine how certainly wrong undiagnosed containment-weary and containment worn-out people get.

A lot of people fight, argue, quarrel, altercate, demean, defame, frame-up, plot against, blackmail, black-list or even kill others who refuse to fit into their own presumed sacrosanct positions & expert-view. In Christ, we learn humility. We borrow other’s wisdom. We treat misinformed people with respect. We share our views & allow everyone to make up their own minds, whether to accept or not. We refuse to be offended when people refuse to allow our controls to contain them.

WITCHCRAFT IS SATAN’S TOOL OF CONTAINMENT

Witchcraft is a bewitchment exercise of insisting on forceful, domineering, manipulating, against-another’s-will control of another human being and his or her situations and circumstances. Witchcraft is the enforcement of strongholds on someone whether he or she likes it or not. No human being has justified rationale to contain another just to exercise superiority of mindset, opinion, thoughts or power. Also known as sorcery, witchcraft manipulates human thoughts, mentality, attitudes, orientations and behaviors, to suit satanic agendas that is portrayed as God’s, but is totally contrary to God’s own. Also connected as divination, which fakes the divine, as enchantment, which fakes God’s supernatural words, witchcraft contains humans just like physical prison cells and yards.

Witchcraft is rooted in Satan. But, it is a demonstration from any yielded human flesh, whether in Christ JESUS or not!

WALK DAILY WITH JESUS – FLOW NATURALLY WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT

Solution to being liberated from life containments is to accept to receive JESUS as your lord, master and savior, allow the Holy Spirit to indwell and direct you daily. Containments are destroyed for those who engage in a new-life spiritual journey during which the Holy Spirit educate, train & coach you to have so you can receive freedom from the shackle-holds of containment forces. When we walk with & in the Holy Spirit we overcome fleshly conditions imposed on us from our mother’s womb. Walking with & in the Holy Spirit helps us renew, reshape, & reorganize our thoughts, priorities, principles, mindsets and practices. With & in the Holy Spirit, we experience a new personality and human nature that manifest us as truly new creatures that becomes devoid of our normal-nature programmed inclinations.

GALATIANS 5:16-25

This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. 17For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.  18But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law. 

19Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,  20Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. 

22But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. 24And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. 25If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. 26Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.

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!

Can You Absorb Bitter Truths About True LOVE?

There is no such thing as true LOVE that let’s you remain your original self.

No true parent love a child and leave the child to untrained nature or unchecked self-will. When God so loved the world that He gave His only Son as a sacrifice & in exchange for worldly people’s souls, He did so in expectation of changed or changing people. His LOVE is free but conditional. He expects returns on His investments. That is part reason why God’s LOVE also chastises & disciplines for the whoever is beloved’s own good.

When Apostle Paul counseled that husbands love wives as Christ loved the church, he emphasized that that would be done in expectation of ability to turn a spotted, wrinkled and blemished bride, around, by the washing of her, free of whatever is unwanted & unneeded. In the same token, the husband was not to expect a sub-mission from a wife without a clear mutual mission, that both can recognize as should be “unto the Lord.”

Anyone crying to be loved should expect the changes and adjustments that being loved demands. You cannot be in true love and claim that you are who you are and no one should expect you to change from who you were prior to accepting the relationship. Expect relationships to place demands for changes on you. Engage in relationship that will place uncomfortable demands for improvements on you and from you.

Many have been wound up by wrong thoughts, sick attitudes and bad experience that need to be unwound. Many have become so subconsciously uptight they are ignorant of ways and means of easing up to another’s true intentions. Many have become so tangled up, they resist true love that could disentangle them to enjoy a more meaningful life through an improving relationship. Many have become so engrossed in trying to please third parties strong-holding views that they are unable to reach into & express their own true inner-selves and thereby enjoy genuine relationship interactions with whoever has well-intended interest in them.

There is no real relationship that will not expose vulnerabilities and make you feel insecure in one way or another. The only way to true relationship is NOT to avoid threats to securities but by taking faith-filled calculated steps that open up to risks of allowing oneself to be open to what one may have closed-up to, otherwise. Hopefully such choice to allow intrusion into sacred, jealously guarded, emotional spaces, will be well-informed so that you are not violated, wounded and/or have old scars reopened again. Since every relationship has potentials of inflicting deep hurts, you need to LEARN HOW to always prepare to self-heal.I have a passion to help with Bible-Inspired insights to improve lives and love relationships. None of us had true relationship 100% figured out and so we made mistakes because emotions do get in the ways of what could be great relationship positive pro-motions.

On Fake, False, and Genuine Ministers of God By Faithful Joel

This post was triggered by a conversation I had with someone.

She asked, “is he a fake man of God? “

Answer: The English language permits the use of ‘fake’ and ‘false’ interchangeably, but the adjectives have different meanings when spiritual matters are concerned.

A fake minister of God is somebody who deceives people to swindle them. S/He uses gimmicks to defraud his/her victims. It doesn’t take long before the victims would discover their folly and realize they were swindled.

False ministers of God, on the other hand, are different. The goal of falsehood in the world is not to defraud people but to win them over to the devil’s camp.

False ministers are agents of satan raised and empowered to mislead and enslave humans for the sole purpose of gaining their souls, so supernatural experiences are the baits used to achieve their ultimate goal.

The world is full of problems and challenges and to overcome these numerous problems, a lot of people seek help from different places which include, but not limited to, christian worship centers.

When people seek and receive spiritual help to solve their problems, more often than not we rarely think or the source of power at play. We are more concerned about the positive outcome.

To many people their faith in the supernatural starts and ends with miraculous encounters; thus it is difficult to distinguish genuine miracles (from God Almighty) and miracles wrought by satan through his agents.

A Personal Experience

I was obsessed with a desire to travel to United States many years ago. It happened that a friend asked me to follow him to some place for spiritual assistance to win a councillorship election. On arrival my friend was told that he wanted to contest for a councillorship seat in a different local government council where he didn’t come from. He was instructed to try his luck in his local government council. I was shocked to the bone by the revelation, so I decided to check if the ‘prophet’ would have something to say about me. The first line that came out from his mouth, “the son of man is planning to go overseas, it will delay but it will surely be.”

My mouth was wide opened throughout the episode. My secret life was brought to light. I was not a believer in Christ so there was no discernment or knowledge of divination. I quickly changed my mind about atheism, free thinking, and other stupid ideologies floating in my head at the time.

I continued to visit the place infrequently until one day, two years later, a friend asked me to attend a particular fellowship. I was already sold on miracles and the reality of supernatural powers, so attending a Christian fellowship was no big deal.

My attendance at the fellowship that Thursday evening, June 30th 1994, was the day I encountered the power of God for salvation. I forgot about going overseas. I simply wanted to know God better and be lost in Him. In fact, my only concerned was to suffer for Him if need be (a prophetic hint of my future in Christ).I knew right away that the other place was not of God. The knowledge came inwardly – my first stint with the gift of discernment. It was after my salvation experience and cutting off from the false prophets that my path became clear. The Lord began to reveal to me my future life and I no longer have to depend on ‘prophets’ to know God’s will for my life.

The Difference

False ministers emphasize miracles and the good life. They are not concerned about spiritual growth, holiness, or soul winning. They subconsciously want people to depend on them. In a nutshell, drawing souls into the devil’s camp by miracles is the ultimate goal of false ministers, instead of repentance towards GOD and personal relationship with HIM.

Genuine ministers of God, however, know that a miracle from God is a STEP by God to draw souls into intimate fellowship with Himself, so a supernatural encounter is not the end in itself.

Many years later as I am going to reveal later, my stints at the false gathering posed a serious problem for me. Every deliberate and unknown covenant with satan will eventually result in problems for people if or when they eventually discover the ONLY TRUE GOD!

20 Reasons Africans Are Suppressed, Oppressed & Dominated – A Leadership Insight, Class, & Observatory Study For Developing Change-Agent Leaders

It may not be the easiest thing to analyse in a short writing & summarize many complex issues that limited, limit & subject Africans to being easy preys of suppression, oppression and domination by non-Africans. Many earlier found it easier to point accusatory fingers at the oppressors, suppressors & dominators while playing victim & blame games, than to introspect. This writing is a look in the mirror to see how we Africans most likely contributed significantly to our own vulnerabilities and became available to those who were always in search of what, or who else, to conquer. The following are some generalizations that should not take away from some portions of relative exceptions & exemptions in Africa.

While most of the points noted in this writing are general global negative human nature, it seem clear & evident that the degree of occurrence of the points raised from among Africans far outpace the next foreign people group who appeared much more able to tame the evil tendencies in their own societies. The reasons are as follows.

Lessons For Child-like Minded People
  1. Africans love pleasures more than spending time on mass productions. They would more easily pay 1000% more price to purchase a foreign product refined from under their own feet than invest in its local production. Foreign products is more enticing to them than for them to engage local labor to finely produce their own goods, to satisfy their own tastes. They have raw materials, spiritual, intellectual & physical, yet they would not devote enough diligence to process, develop systems, mass produce & manage one another for collective economic advantages unless they are working under strict conditions of people from prior colonial countries & leadership
  2. They find it difficult to complete, compliment or submit to one of their own. Command and control is more like the only thing that works with them. Most people hated to fall in line behind others. There is general impatience to wait in place for first person to get done. Team-spirit is almost non-existent except when they are strong-arm imposed and/or when money is the motivation, and that may be attached only for their barest minimum self-survival. There is nothing wrong with working for money and immediate benefit. Except that economic development processes are usually developed out of collective intellectual contributions that added up over seasons of experience FIRST before enough money is available to share one with another.
  3. They prefer kingship mentality. They are either available to worship an oppressive, domineering leader, or they labor to become a worship figure for family, friends or communities. They are more in rat races of becoming prominently celebrated leadership figures than they are in providing community solution centers or providing empowering projects to others. They only find it necessary to fall in line when dictatorial king-like authority is imposed.
  4. They are somehow raised to feel inferiority complex towards others from foreign lands. Non dark/black skinned foreigner is automatically assumed superior-skilled, superior-empowered, unquestionably served, and unfairly allowed unnecessary advantages. In the meantime, a better qualified next door indigenous expert is disregarded because they are too familiar with him or her, and, they just cannot get to accept that one of their own blood should lead them.
  5. They are naturally superstitious. Everything is viewed from extreme spiritual angles. Researches, probes for facts of most matters, exploratory adventures, questioning of higher authorities are essentially forbidden in order not to offend the spirits, gods, or powers that be.
  6. They have less value for other’s lives than they should. Twins were feared and killed at infancy. Albinos are suspected as not being normal human being. Malformed or disabled people are hardly ever treated as complete humans. Eradication of such gives most silent satisfaction. Human rituals are so normal because it is believed the destiny or glory of one can be spiritually transferred to another by devious traditional religious/juju/voodoo practices.
  7. They embrace caste systems. They accept that some people are born more equal than others and some have been predestined to become better than others. They do not accept that God gives equal chances & opportunity for each human to strive and become the best that each can work hard to be.
  8. They have inflexible belief and many erroneous traditional systems. While non-Africans would test limits of faith and take fate into their own hands, a locally bred African would hardly dare any such thing. They fight tooth and nail against anyone who questions their cultural upbringing, rightly and wrongly. Nothing wrong with celebrating laudable cultural heritage. But everything is wrong with not identifying faulty legacies and therefrom developing better future for newer generations.
  9. Accountability is alien to most. Leaders were not expected to respond to criticism, answer probing questions, nor be fully transparent in operational dealings. The more non-responsive to questions, the more respect leaders seem to get from the followers. It is mostly disrespectful to call anyone in upper hierarchy to feedback answers on responsibility awarded or assigned.
  10. They are extremely reluctant and hate to celebrate their own bright minds. Initiatives and innovations are rarely generally acclaimed, morally supported or communally adopted. It is rare for people to publicly invest in one of their owns trade. Relatives do not expect to pay for products or service being marketed by their own. They would rather go and pay more to an unknown seller or foreigner without thinking twice about it. It is cultural to suppress and stifle initiatives and workable ideas.
  11. They invite foreign interference into their own domestic disputes, thereby encouraging & empowering foreign interests and dominance. Since it is rare for Africans to unite one with another, it became evident to prying foreign eyes that they can use premeditated militant force to divide and rule them. Most foreign nations are no better human beings. They are just a people group who already learned to celebrate their own ethnic, tribal, social, political, and religious differences.
  12. They easily throw one another under the bus in exchange for foreigners favors. They did sell their own brothers and sisters and got paid for it one way or another. Though most of the problems of Africans have been directed at the influence, influx, dominance, and misdirection of colonial leaders, rulers & countries, it is my personal belief that such audacious manipulations, suppression, oppression and thefts could not have been as effective without the willing participation of local divisions & inability to naturally unite as a diverse entity and unit.
  13. They have aversions to keeping critical & essential records open and available for public consumption or revealing how-tos for others to gain insights from. Secrecy is wrongly regarded as wisdom. They call it native wisdom. Much of plain speaking is avoided while manipulative proverbs are encouraged. It is well known that a typical African will not open books to read and glean information from one another except maybe for students who must read, and, who have no choice but to read to pass examinations.
  14. They have muddled up issues of faith, beliefs or religions. While remaining subconsciously attached to rudiments of local religious traditions and customs, many Africans have combined different ratios and dilutions of Christian, Islam & other forms of manipulated foreign orientations. While not fully Christian, Islamic or otherwise, they are neither fully traditional god worshipers. Muddled-up faith cannot therefore allow a true God to be as manifested in their situations & circumstances as He could be. False religious conspiratorial propaganda messed up many African’s belief-systems and make it difficult to achieve oneness of purpose across peoples, groups, communities. These works well to serve purposes of those who purposefully sold Africans their own versions of what could have otherwise remain divine truths that should produce divine results.
  15. Capitalism & materialism have become Africans recent obsessions. The allures of western-wealth being propagandized through movies, news media and international political narratives have consumed most Africans. Getting rich quick, amassing grandiose personal fortune, showing off personal success, became the new norm. In such world, living life is about the survival of the fittest with almost no interest in carrying another person along in the success journey. In there is no room for exhibiting good Samaritan or being a brother’s keeper. With that, the new slave-traders or marshals-in-command are the larger than life media-projected owners of financial empires. Typical African will do anything by hook or crook to become the next Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, Mark Zuckerbergs of our time without plans to endure the processes and systems that produced such. With that comes the attendance increase of pseudo role models and Hushpuppi-like scammers with large tastes for exotic & extremely expensive goods without any obvious production lines, essential service staffs or legacy-driven ventures.
  16. Most foreign people groups and nations survive by being in complete control of their own political, economic, military and geographical destinies. Most Africans have directly and indirectly submitted the controls of these powers to foreign authorities for supervision, manipulation, oppression and suppressive oversight.
  17. Crab culture is a bane to Africans. Crab nature is – “I pull down the one ahead of me so I can take the position, then the one behind pulls me down so none of us makes tangible progress.” Or, “I will not support anyone else except myself. I have to be absolutely in charge, no one else know better than me. The way I see things is the only right way.” 
  18. Most Africans try to reinvent wheels that someone else already invented. Falling in line behind another is a societal bane. Each one try to get credit while working hard to deprive the other from receiving due accolade and respect for ideas, initiatives and progress scored. Rather than build on previously recorded accomplishments, newer strides are embarked upon, many times to spite earlier achievers, and to score the point that what the last person achieved can equally, or better, be achieved by competition. Giving credit to an earlier achiever is beclouded by rivalry, pride, jealousy, envy and outright disdain. Each one expects and plans regularly to be smarter and wiser than his or her next blood brother or sister.
  19. They demonstrated lack of ability to implement societal order and inability to manage to organize societies without favoritism or bending rules for privileged ones. They hardly hide the fact that application of law and order can be bought cheaply by the rich, wealthy & powerful ones, who could easily afford it. Sloppy enforcement of qualitative standard of societal organizations has encouraged corruption to become almost an insurmountable monster. Justice could be easily swayed in most places in African.
  20. They are unable to agree on one language to educate one another with. Without being able to speak with one voice of understanding, the spaces became prone to confusion whereby everyone pursue similar goals differently and disjointedly. Education of the citizens have been outsourced to working foreign education systems that have alien elements that should not be applied locally.

SO WHAT MUST AFRICANS DO?

The answer seems clear. The first step to any solution is to understand the problems, or, reasons for a problem. When a diagnosis is well done, prescriptions for solutions becomes easier to describe. Resident in the points raised above are the solutions. A reversal of a problem’s root cause should provide solutions needed. Africans must find ways to overcome disunity within & without their tribes, ethnic nationalities, religious persuasions, genders, educations, orientations, cities, nations and communities.

Unity is not the same as uniformity. If the United States Of America could somehow integrate almost all races on earth within her systems and still remain a great one-entity nation regardless of various tribes, ethnicity, races, thought-patterns, orientations, with extreme diversities, then Africa could borrow a leaf from that. Africans will need to lay down pride, class, and divergent views to overcome entrenched systemic oppression & suppression that rages from within & from without.

This writing is a personal insight on what to expect when trying to advise, lead, or organize Africans as a spiritual leader who seeks attitudinal changes that could transform societies globally. These are personal observations and thoughts of Bishop Olanrewaju Elujoba, President of Worldwide WORD Missions, USA. Without understanding the culture that formed patterns of thinking, mindsets, traditions, and decision-making orientation or psychology of someone, it would be pointless attempting to redirect such for societal changes. These thoughts are open to further observations, educated corrections and positively informed adjustments.

LOVE Does Not Leave You The Same

There is no such thing as true LOVE that let’s you remain your original self. No true parent love a child and leave the child to untrained nature or unchecked self-will. When God so loved the world that He gave His only Son as a sacrifice & exchange for worldly people’s souls, He did so in expectation of changed or changing people. God’s love chastises & disciplines for the beloved’s own good.

When Apostle Paul counseled that husbands love wives as Christ loved the church, he emphasized that that would be done in expectation of ability to turn a spotted, wrinkled and blemished bride, around, by the washing of her, free of the unwanted & unneeded. In the same token, the husband was not to expect a sub-mission without a clear mutual-mission, like as would be “unto the Lord”

Anyone crying to be loved should expect the changes and adjustments that being loved demands. You cannot be in true love and claim that you are who you are and no one should expect you to change from who you were prior to accepting the relationship. Expect relationships to place demands for changes on you. Engage in relationship that will place uncomfortable demands for improvements on you and from you.

Many have been wound up by wrong thoughts, sick attitudes and bad experience that need to be unwound. Many have become so subconsciously uptight they are ignorant of ways and means of easing up to another’s true intentions. Many have become so tangled up they resist true love that could disentangle them to enjoy meaningful life through an improving relationship. Many have become so engrossed in trying to please third parties strong-holding views that they are unable to reach into & express their own true inner-selves and thereby enjoy genuine relationship interactions with whoever has well-intended interest in them.

There is no real relationship that will not expose vulnerabilities and make feel unsecured in one way or another. The only way to true relationship is not to avoid threats to securities but by taking faith-filled calculated steps that open up to risks of allowing oneself to be open to what one may have closed-up to, otherwise. Hopefully such choice to allow intrusion into sacred, jealously guarded, emotional spaces, will be well-informed so that you are not violated, wounded and/or have old scars reopened again. Since every relationship has potentials of inflicting deep hurts, always prepare to self-heal.

I have a passion to help with Bible-Inspired insights to improve lives and love relationships. None of us had true relationship 100% figured out and so made mistakes because emotions do get in the ways of what could be great relationship positive pro-motions.

I have helped people quietly over several years. I may be able to help you if you need confidential listening ears and clearer perspectives. Come, let us reason together.

3 Out Of 5 Are Lonely

“More than three in five Americans are lonely, with more and more people reporting feeling like they are left out, poorly understood and lacking companionship ….. Loneliness appeared to be more common among men. The survey found 63% of men to be lonely, compared with 58% of women..” Quote from an NPR Article by ELENA RENKEN January 23, 2020 6:00 AM ET

You cannot eat your cake & still have it. You cannot shut yourself away from sharing quality time, having conversations & interacting with others and at the same time complain of or endure loneliness.

Since loneliness is a craving to have right & intimate relationship, at the right time, solution is found in you opening up your space, mental & physical, for others to intrude into.

Part of the solution is also to create the time to invest yourself by intruding into others spaces too. It is from the abundance of conversations & interactions that one can prune down productive from non-productive relationships. You cannot shut everyone out & not be lonely. Push yourself to engage in relationships with people, known & unknown.

Since you are not perfect, you should create room for others, who are imperfect, to come around you. Cut people a lot of slack. Expect them to be faulty humans. Develop yourself to accommodate the good, the bad & the ugly. If God can tolerate you, why would you not attempt to tolerate fellow people, by letting them keep you busy & amuse you with their behaviors/misbehaviors.

“In-person connections are what really matters,” says Doug Nemecek, chief medical officer for behavioral health at Cigna. “Sharing that time to have a meaningful interaction and a meaningful conversation, to share our lives with others, is important to help us mitigate and minimize loneliness.” NPR ORG Article by ELENA RENKEN January 23, 20206:00 AM ET

“And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.” Genesis 2:18 (KJV)

God said that scripture when there was only one individual on the surface of the earth. There are 7 billion people now. Make yourself available to other human beings. Be help suitable for someone/others. Allow someone/others be help suitable for you!

No human being is structured to be complete alone. It is not good for any man or woman to be all one (alone). Being all by yourself has its good part. Loneliness is when you are too much by yourself.

Make a choice to surround yourself with people or get one truly intimate one out of the many people around. Every relationship can hurt very deeply. Get yourself healing balms. It is better to be hurt and get healed than to suffer loneliness & depression. Loneliness affects more than mental health. It affects your entire well-being.

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!
