*Thinking about ‘The Government being Upon His Shoulders’*
There is a work side to Prosperity. It is the works of our hand God blesses.
People are in farms planting yams and we are busy sitting in Church, when it is harvesting time; don’t expect yams to fall from heaven, when People are eating and you are “believing” God for yams.
Faith without work is dead. There should be a corresponding action in line of Faith.
When the gospel came to Africa, the Missionaries saw two vital areas of Deficiencies – Hospitals and schools. They filled these Gaps.
Today, directly or indirectly, we have all benefited from it.
Today, we have a major problem;- Unemployment. Instead of filling this gap we are taking advantage of it.
We gather the unemployed and “prophesy” jobs to them. We give them stickers, sell “holy water”, tell them to sow and expect harvest, convincing them to “work” for the lord, that breakthrough is coming… All these we do to exploit and explore the vulnerable.
We travel abroad. We have gone to Israel and see the Agricultural exploits there. But we are not willing to bring them home.
When we sow, instead of our money to be invested into ventures like Agriculture that would alleviate the sufferings of the weak ones among us, we channel the money to an atheist in Germany who designed MOG’s customised cars.
We channel the money to Buddhists in China where we buy our building materials. We channel the money to a gay in America who produced our sound systems and lighting systems.
We channel the money to a Muslim in Dubai who did the interior decoration of our ” magnificent ” buildings..What a Capital Flight!
Why are we crying of Poverty and for Breakthrough? The God that we know responds to work wherever he sees Man doing something to advance humanity, be it a Hindu, Gay, Buddhist, atheist etc.
I don’t want to start mentioning names, neither do I want to indict any person. But just imagine Living Faith Church going into Rice Production, Redeem going into Cassava production, Christ Embassy into Maize, the Lord’s Choosen into Yams, Catholics into millets, Deeper Life & Foursquare into Fruits Production etc.
The land is there, the Man power is there, the money is there, like the Missionaries of old who saw a problem and filled it, we can also fill this problem of Unemployment and Food security.
Just imagine a Church sending hundreds of Trailer load of foods to evangelise the North. No man can resist love. Feed them in love and watch how their hearts change. That was how the Missionaries changed the hearts of our Forebears.
The Missionaries have tried for us, and instead of us to keep pressing Northwards, we have resulted in building Empires as Churches. We have Commercialized the Gospel. It is all now about Breakthroughs, Prosperity, Money and less of JESUS, His Person, His Sacrifice and His Finished works.
We have traveled abroad and have seen great Agricultural exploits, it is time to bring these inventions back home.
It is time we convert our Exotic cars in our garages to Tractors and other mechanised and modern Agricultural tools.
Doing what Government cannot do. By doing this; “THE GOVERNMENT SHALL BE UPON HIS SHOULDERS “.
When we roar, the Government is supposed to quiver, not because of our large bank accounts, but because of our intimidating Exploits.
It is time to wake-up… I see a day when we shall be holding our Numerous Church services in Farms and Factories. It is time to take the Government upon His shoulder. It is Action TIME!
The Voice of One has spoken!….Selah!!!
