"You have killed your husband while alive" Cool FM's Freeze wrote a secret letter to Tiwa Savage


It is true that on the day an elephant died, there will be a dispaly of different knives. Those knives won't just be for displays but to cut portions out of the helpless animal. Who dares an elephant when alive?.

 

The collapse of Tiwa Savage and Tunji Balogun aka Tee Billz,s marriage has greatly generated heated arguments, advices and letters. Even those whose stories were not far from the Baloguns have joined in the letter writing and advice giving adventure.


One of those who carried knife to chair out of their unfortunate incidence is popular on-air personality called Ifedayo Olarinde aka Freeze. The fair skin media entrepreneur who abandoned his wife, Ope, last year with two kids and allegedly followed a Port Harcourt based super rich woman who is said to have already given birth to four kids has written a letter to the distrusted Tiwa to view his "displeasure" on the current brouhaha between her and Tee Billz.

 

Freeze with his ex-wife, Ope

                                             

OAP Freeze wrote an open letter to Tiwa Savage following revelations she made over the weekend in an interview about her marriage to Teebillz.

 

Here is the letter...

Dear Tiwa,
I have nothing but love for you, but after I watched all 45 mins of your interview.... ..Tiwa, I know it hurts when a relationship breaks down, and those accusations T Billz made were extremely hurtful, nonetheless, I believe you could have employed caution when responding, since according to you, he was unstable and suicidal.
In law, if for instance, you walk in on your man in bed with another woman and you shoot him on the spot, you could get a lighter sentence, if your legal counsel argues provocation. On the flip side, if you walk out of the scene to get a gun and then launch an attack, it's now considered premeditated.

The fact that you granted a 'pitch perfect' interview, with a flawless visual background and superb audio quality, in my opinion looks a bit premeditated.

If you had denied all his accusations and asked to swear on ayelala or amadioha or sango as against the lie detector test, since on no instance has a polygraph ever been used in Nigeria, and if afterwards you had requested for privacy, as you deal with such a sensitive issue, this matter would have been laid to rest. How are you going to tell Nigerians not to talk about issues you 'used your own hand' to make public? This could only serve to further delay your healing.

Even though my prayer is for your issues to be resolved and for joy to return to your home, the breakdown of a marriage is not the end of the world, I have been through it and my world did not end. However, do you realize that the interview you gave could lead to the end of TJ's world? Who is now going to hire, work with, or have any business dealings with an unstable, adulterous, fraudulent, cocaine sniffer who cannot manage money and has his priorities misplaced? Whether you like it or not, that is what the interview has delineated him to be. In furtherance to this, if he was suicidal before, this interview is only going to make him even more suicidal!

I know you both love Jamil so in all this drama, lets be very careful to shield him, as the Internet never forgets and his friends and classmates will always have his father's tweets along with your interview as points of reference.




OPEN HEAVENS SUNDAY 1ST MAY 2016 TOPIC : THE MAN GOD USES


Memorise:


But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. 2 Timothy 2:20


Read: 2 Timothy 2:19-21


19 Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.


20 But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour.


21 If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, and prepared unto every good work.


MESSAGE:


Today’s memory verse speaks of the availability of vessels of different makes, designs, and qualities to a great person. The choice of what vessel to use for any particular purpose is dependent on the master’s preference and the suitability of each vessel to the assignment at hand. So also, the man that God will use for any assignment must be found suitable for Kingdom assignment. God is always in the business of searching for suitable resources that He can use to fulfil His purpose here on earth. Whenever He locates one, He proceeds with the preparation and training of the chosen for the assignment. Incidentally, the divine equipment usually employed for the preparation and training of the man that God use is the cross. Many Christians are not fulfilling their purpose in life and ministry because they have consistently refused the required training for their assignments, and because they are not found to be suitable yet, their commissioning remains pending. May the Lord wake you up to the reality of your situation today, so that you can take your rightful place in the programme of heaven in Jesus’ name.


The man that God will use becomes completely transformed by going through the preparation process of God. The relationship that follows guarantees that the person's mind, heart, will and life now belong to Jesus Christ alone, he becomes reoriented with God and God’s kingdom. He is convinced beyond any reasonable doubt that he or she was created to please God and would begin to pursue godly purposes with all determination. In the life of the man God uses, the words of 2 Corinthians 9:8 come to play;


“God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.”


Therefore, the man God uses is the person who has absolute trust, reliance, and faith in God. He relies on God as the source of all things; he is a man through whom God can do all things. He is fully aware of God’s agenda in the world, and he lives with a clear, God-given sense of direction toward fulfilling God’s purpose. The presence of God is with him always and he is always careful to keep his character and integrity in line with the Word of God.


The man God uses is able to bring incredible changes and blessings into the life of anyone that comes in contact with him, through him, people with broken spirit, unstable families, the poor, those with health challenges, the demon possessed and the disenfranchised, can all find peace and prosperity with God. This is the whole essence of Christianity, and all it requires is our total submission to the preparation and training process. May the Lord give you the grace to pay the price for greatness in Jesus’ name.


PRAYER POINT:


Father, give me the grace to depend totally on you and completely submit myself to your training in Jesus’ name.

GOOD MORNING AND HAPPY NEW MONTH.

Exlusive: What no one has never told you about the dramas, the intrigues of Tiwa Savage and Tee Billz broken marriage

 
Nigerian entertainment industry pundits have seen this coming. They know it will soon blow hot after barely 3 years. There have been fillers but they took it as a rumor. Tiwatope Savage's marriage to Tunji Balogun aka Tee Billz treied all it could to produce a child "in between" them but, their issues started from the day of their marriage.
That was the day Tunji started knowing what he has led himself to; they are incompatible! Tunji could not manage a celebrity wife after all and the stories that kept emanating from the record label where his wife was signed unto can make a man run mad.

It all started with a rumour that Tiwa has been giving her boss, Don Jazzy "blow job" inside their Marvins headquarter, later it was, Dr. Sid and later Tu face Idibai himself who is know to be a man of many women, then they tagged her "Animashahun' " meaning (a cheerful giver).

The denials won't seize but all has come to an end now... Tiwatope Savage and Tee Billz are no more... The have separated.
When it happened about 48 hours ago, no one could believe it just like Leicester City's title run but it's real...

In an exclusive interview with Thisday journalist, Azuka Ogujuiba and obtained by Pulse.ng following her husband's accusations, the singer said she's never cheated on him. She confirmed that he was found on Lekki-Ikoyi toll bridge yesterday, and said they've been separated for two months. She also said she knew the marriage wasn't going to work. She said she found out she was pregnant again while in Jamaica but had a miscarriage and later found out her husband was cheating. She said Teebillz has never spent a dime on their child and she was the one taking care of their family. She also accused him of allegedly stealing from her and taking cocaine in their home. She said their marriage is over and what he did on social media was Godsent...that it made it easier for her to finally walk away. She said a whole lot more....
"I have never cheated on my husband. Not with Don Jazzy, Dr Sid, 2face Idibia or anybody. I have never cheated on my husband, and Tunji knows this. He knows that in his heart.

                                  

Here are the basic statements she made in the video...
  • At around 10 and 11, Banky W’s Mum and his family were praying, and we got the call that he was found in Lekki, and that he has been taken to Banky’s House.


  •  When I woke up, I thought they found him dead. My first thought was that we need to find him, he is suicidal, and we need to make sure he is alive. I didn’t even know what he had said. Someone took my phone from me, they don’t want me to see what was said online. I was just sacred for his life.

  • For the past two months, TJ and I have not been together, it was something we were working through, but I knew this marriage would not work.


  • I haven’t spoke to TJ in about a week, and we were supposed to get some passports for my son. He was reading the messages and he wasn’t responding. I begged him to be friends, and let’s be good parents to Jamil. He didn’t respond.


  • I covered up for a lot of hurt in our relationship. Just before I went to Jamaica, I found out that I was pregnant. We were just trying to find out how we were going to manage another baby so soon. I got to London, on a 10-hour flight to shoot a video with Busy Signal (Reggae Artiste). While doing my makeup,  I found out I was bleeding and I passed out. I was rushed to the hospital, and we were trying to call TJ to tell him what happened. While we were sleeping at two AM a number called him saved as Edible Catering….I checked his phone, and the number was asking him if she can come to his hotel. She responded that He (TJ) knocked her out last night, that he was a great night. I confronted him, and he said he took another woman to the hotel and said they were just chilling. This happened the period I was in Jamaica, and I was in the hospital. I sent TJ pictures, and he was busy with another woman. I was in ahospital and you couldn’t be bothered find out what happened to me. I packed my stuff, took my son and went to my friends house, her name is Tiwa also. I stayed the night, and she asked me for the next step, I told her I was done.


  • I covered up for so long because I wanted people to believe that TJ is the one that takes care of me, TJ is the head of the house…I wanted him to be the head of the house. I covered up so much.


  • TJ has not spent one Naira, I paid for hospital bills, his flight, his accommodation, we also went shopping for TJ so that he will have new things. His excuse was that Í don’t have money’. I had to pay for everything so that he can go out and hustle, and get the contracts. He didn’t have money for diapers, but he had money to have a bi-weekly haircut, had money to pay for his laundry, had money to take a woman to the hotel.


  • His cooking allegations is a lie. I am not going to say because of my career that I am not going to cook. I work long hours to put money in the house, I work to make sure that we have a roof over our house. I come back home really late, and when I make something for myself, I make some for TJ. I had to hire a cook to cook for me, him and the other people that live in the house, I don’t think that is wrong…Even if it is true, the things he puts me through will not even encourage me to ask him if he is hungry. He goes out and you come home at 7 in the morning, sometime 2pm. He comes back drunk, he comes back angry, and we don’t know what sort of mood he is in. Sometimes TJ will go out and he will not call, and he will not tell him. I am just sacred for his safety, I will be calling him frantically, to find out that he didn’t go and drink. I am even praying that he is with another woman, so that at least I know that he is alive. That’s not the person that I will ask if he has eaten.


  • When I sacked him as my manager – I will never discredit or take away that TJ worked hard, hustled and believed in me. But what I will say is that at one point….he is booking events and he will book shows. The first time I found out that there was foul play was when he booked me for a wedding in London. I have to be paid before I perform. I called one of the organisers, and said I have not been paid. He said that the show has been paid four months ago, he showed me the account were they paid him. TJ declared that the show was for 3M but they really paid 4.5M, out of the 3M he was still receiving the management fee 40%. He took money already, and collected his percentage, and he didn’t feel anything. He was stealing from his wife. I had to perform at the wedding for free. I do get to perform for free when he takes my money.


  • My mum is based in the UK, and when I had Jamil she moved back to Nigeria with us. My mother is not like that (witchcraft), she is a sweet lady, and she’s very British, she doesn’t judge, she is not hung up like that. A lot of times, my mom would say ‘Tiwa you are the wife, be patient, don’t curse don’t shout, build the home.’ She has been nothing but a great support for me. I would love for him to tell me if there is something my mother has done.


  • I have never cheated on my husband. Not with Don Jazzy, Dr Sid, 2face Idibia or anybody. I have never cheated on my husband, and Tunji knows this. He knows that in his heart. (She breaks down in tears) Sometimes in the studio, one of the things that Don Jazzy and some of my other label mates say is that I am really good with interviews, with being diplomatic and knowing how to carry myself with difficult situations. This hurts. I have seen comments of what people are saying about me. It is not true.


  • I know that for every human being when your father’s ways are not straight, it will bother you. Since I sacked him from my management, he has been struggling financially. He was stealing from me, so I had to save my marriage and separate business from family. TJ wants to keep up with the Joneses, he wants to live a life that is not true. He went to buy a car, a Mercedes that he knew that he didn’t have the money for it. The person kept up calling that he wants the balance. I ended up paying the balance of over 3M. When it was time to pay, I put the money in his account, so they don’t know I was the person paying for it. He also bought a Rolex, and didn’t pay the balance. They threaten to go to the press, and to protect my name, I will have to pay for it. He goes to clubs and leaves the tabs for me, and I have to pay for him. He is putting us in debt.


  • What set off all off this was that he went to borrow 45 million Naira from someone and he lost it. I just found out that EFCC was investigating a case against him, and my brother called me from London and confirmed it that TJ is in deep trouble, and that some people might hurt him, that I should be careful. In my frantic mode to try and suppress this situation I went to one of my big bros who can help. A week ago I told TJ that we were running out of Jamil’s food, but he didn’t do nothing. He complains, but cuts his hair twice a week. I have been searching for N45M so that they don’t kill him, so that they EFCC does not carry him. What kind of man does that, and says I am the one taking away his manhood.


  • I walked in on TJ taking cocaine in my house in 1004 (Victoria Island, Lagos). I didn’t even know he takes cocaine. I walked into the kitchen, and I saw him taking cocaine, so I screamed, and asked if that is cocaine. HE started screaming that ‘What am I doing down here, where is the cocaine?’ How can someone without money take cocaine? I called his parents and complained that I can deal with weed, but cocaine, no. So I am dealing with his alcohol problem, you come home late, infidelity, coaciane, bad debt, jealousy over my success.


  • Before marriage, Idin’t know of his third child in Nigeria. A lot of people warned me about him, but I am going to say I made a mistake. At the beginning everyone says you can’t leave the marriage because our culture frowns on it. I made a mistake, do I have to wait ten years, 15 years? If I am not happy. And I was scared that if I ever find somebody else to marry me? That’s the msiconceptions of our society. I don’t care if I ever get married again. I care about being happy for Jamil, I care about not walking on eggshells. I do want a man that works, that will help me with my financial burden. He doesn’t have to be a millionaire or billionaire, but at least someone that helps, and won’t put me in more debt.


  • Everyday all I hear from TJ is that ‘I created you, I took you from nothing, look at you now.


  • The marriage is finally over, it’s been over for a while, and I have covered up for a while. What happened was God-sent, and he made it easier for me to walk away with what he did on social media. He got so many people angrier, he pulled so many innocent people into this. Even his family. He made it easy for me to finally up and walk away.


  • I will never stop hum from seeing Jamil, never. Even today, Jamil is still saying ‘dadada’, and I was saying it with him as well, that’s his first word. I want to bring him up to be a good man.


  • Even till now I don’t wish anything bad on him. As we are doing this interview, I am worried that if he sees it, it might trigger him to do something bad. I don’t want my son to grow up and know, God forbid, that his father commited suicide. Tonight, I am still gonna pray for him.


  • He was getting help at one point when the whole cocaine thing came out. This has been happening for a long time. We get him helpo and he goes to see a doctor or a pastor, or a counsellor and he uses his own hands to ruin things again. If I didn’t care about him, I wouldn’t be covering up for a lot of things. I wouldn’t be searching for help for him. Even now I am still searching for a way to help him out of his debt, so that if he is out of this,


  • If there is anything that maybe I overlooked, or didn’t love him enough, or made him less of a man, then I am sorry. I am absolutely sorry…Tunji I am sorry. But you know I tried everything, you know I love you so much, and I am sorry, I never wanted to divorce, and I never wanted it to get to this. I want you to get better…and I would always pray for you

OPEN HEAVENS SATURDAY 30TH APRIL 2016 TOPIC: THE LORD, MY FORTRESS


Memorise:

And he said, The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer. 2 Samuel 22:2

Read: Psalms 91:1-8

1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

2 I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.

4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;

6 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.

7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.

MESSAGE:

The experience of the Psalmist concerning divine protection is worthy of study. According to our memory verse for today, he says: “The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer.” Whoever experiences these attributes of God in his life can be rightly described as the inheritance of the Lord. The psalmist further wrote:

“They that trust in the Lord shall be as mount Zion, which cannot be moved, but abideth for ever.” Pslams 125:1

One point to quickly note is that this Bible verse talks only to those who put their trust in the Lord, not those who have alternatives. David trusted totally in the Lord and he was never disappointed, that's why he had made such statements as this;

“As the mountain are round about Jerusalem, so the Lord is round about his people from henceforth even for ever.” Psalms125:2

In other words, the Lord builds walls of protection round about his people. This is ‘food for thought’ for double-minded people who are still in doubt of God’s ability to totally protect. Some people are even afraid of prosperity, because they feel they would be prone to attacks from enemies if they get rich. They obviously do not know that the Almighty God that prospers is the One that protects as well.

“Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence... Thou shall not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day.” Psalms 91:3,5

One is thrilled by assurance with which the Psalmist is telling us about the Lord’s protection over His people. David’s experiences, first with the lion and the bear, and later with Goliath, are testimonies that should make a doubter believe that Our God is indeed Jehovah-Nissi.

I assure you that if you put your trust in the Lord, your protection is guaranteed. Our Lord never fails, He watches over his elect so that His name will not be blasphemed. Also, He fights on behalf of his elect so that they may not be discouraged by the battles of life.

My prayer is that the Rock of Ages will continue to protect you and your loved ones in the name of Jesus. However, ensure that you have no other god beside the Almighty God.

PRAYER POINT:

Father, Please deliver me from the nets of the fowler in Jesus’ name.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 1 Kings 12-13 and Proverbs 17:15-28

GOOD MORNING AND HAPPY WEEKEND.

At last Colombia legalizes same-sex marriage!



Finally it is done! A top court in Colombia has officially legalized same-sex marriage in the country. Same sex couples who were already allowed to form civil partnerships, are now permitted to get married just like other heterosexual couples.
 This new law places Colombia as the fourth country in Latin America to legalize same sex marriages. Argentina was the first Latin American country to take the step in July 2010 before Brazil and Uruguay followed suit.

Why Actress Mercy Aigbe was arrested!


Popular Nollywood actress, Mercy Aigbe Gentry, had a brawl with men of the Osun State police yesterday. She and her driver were arrested at Olaiya junction in Osogbo, the Osun State capital for allegedly displaying a police cap on her car’s dash board, attracting the police attention. Another report claims it was because her driver was using the phone while driving.

According to multiple reports, when she was stopped, she was ordered to step out of her car so her vehicle could be searched. Her presence reportedly attracted a large crowd who gathered and wanted to know why she was being arrested. A visibly angry Mercy was seen making calls on her phone which was later seized, according to a report by Vanguard

                               

When the crowd became too much, the policemen fired several gunshots in the air and whisked Mercy and her driver away. Her driver was taken away in a police van while another police officer was said to have driven Mercy in her Honda car.

Confirming the incident, an Assistant Police Public Relations Officer, Ajibade Egbedele, said, it was just a minor traffic issue and that the matter has been settled.

OPEN HEAVENS THURSDAY 28TH APRIL 2016 TOPIC : OVERCOMING TRIALS 1


Memorise :

Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him. James 1:12

Read : Proverbs 1:11-15

11 If they say, Come with us, let us lay wait for blood, let us lurk privily for the innocent without cause:

12 Let us swallow them up alive as the grave; and whole, as those that go down into the pit:

13 We shall find all precious substance, we shall fill our houses with spoil:

14 Cast in thy lot among us; let us all have one purse:

15 My son, walk not thou in the way with them; refrain thy foot from their path:

MESSAGE:

The irony of the spiritual realm is that the tempter is the prosecutor. The Bible says:

And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. Revelation 12:9-10

The Above scripture points to one bitter truth; trials and temptations are characteristics of life whether we believe it or not. It is. However, better to believe it because it is then we can preparedly overcome it. The Bible also confirms it by attaching a blessings to overcomers of temptation:

Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him. James 1:12

It takes genuine love of God to be able to overcome temptation. Joseph was able to overcome temptation of sleeping with his masters wife because of the love he had for God. This love was what produced his victory. He said:

There is none greater in this house than I; neither hath he kept back any thing from me but thee, because thou art his wife: how then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God? Genesis 39:9

As said earlier, there will always be temptations as long as we on this earth. Temptation is not a sin but falling into it is a sin. The bad thoughts that the devil flashes at you are not sins until you begin to hatch and execute them. It is our resistance to temptation that makes us overcomers. The Bible says :

Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin. Hebrews 12:4

My prayer for Someone using this devotional is that you remain an overcomer over sin from now on in Jesus name.

PRAYER POINT:

Father, Sanctify me wholly from every besetting sin by the Blood of Jesus she on the cross.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR : 1 Kings 8:22-9:28 and Proverbs 16:20-33. GOOD MORNING.

What a world! Siamese twins born sharing a face in India

 
What a world! This actually happened although, doctors have confirmed that they only lived for six minutes following their birth at Pandit Deendayal Upadhyay Government Medical College four days ago. The mother of the twins had a smooth pregnancy until her first ultrasound at seven months where she was informed about the shocking condition of her babies.
Speaking on the incredibly rare situation, Kirtan Vyas - an assistant professor in the gynecology ward of the hospital who operated on the mother, said medics already knew they were unlikely to survive. According to him, their hospital has been active for 140 years and there’s only been around three to four cases of conjoined twins. This case of conjoined twins was however an even more shocking and rare one.
The woman and her husband have now decided to let go & donate the body of the twins to the government medical college for research.

Pastor, two family members allegedly poured hot water on a man as part of a "spiritual warfare"!

 
A pastor and two other members of his family, including his wife, were released on EC$5,000 (One Ec dollar =US$0.37 cents) bail each after they appeared in court on Friday, April 22 on a charge of unlawfully and maliciously inflicting grievous bodily harm on a man.
Pastor Nigel Morgan, his wife Althea, an office clerk and their daughter, Crystal, poured hot water on Cuthbert Victory, a mason, as part of a “spiritual warfare” on April 9 in Marriaqua, St. Vincent, Jamaica. The three are reported to have held down Victory while their daughter poured the boiling water on his back.

A video of the incident has been posted on the social network, Facebook, showing that it took place in a drain along the public road in Hopewell, Mesopotamia, near the home of the pastor.
The 37-year-old mason, suffered burns to his back, shoulders, chest and face. He said he had been told by doctors that he suffered first-degree burns and that the water that was poured on him was mixed with oil.
The trio, appeared before Chief Magistrate, Rechanne Browne-Matthias at the Serious Offence Court in Kingstown. They pleaded not guilty and will re-appear in the Mesopotamia Magistrate’s Court in Marriaqua, on April 29.
"I hope you all make enough money — you hear?" said Morgan, as photographers too the picture of the family as they left the court building. "I hope you all give an offering to all the churches," he added.
Attorney Kay Bacchus-Browne told CMC on Friday that her clients have a good defense.
"It is not like what you see going around on social media where it is being said that the three of them joined together. It is not like that at all," Bacchus-Browne said.
Morgan had earlier told CMC that the incident was ‘a spiritual warfare. "This is a spiritual warfare. It is in the hands of God and he will fight and he will deliver," he had said then.

OPEN HEAVENS TUESDAY 26TH APRIL 2016 TOPIC : KNOW YOUR ENEMY 1

Memorise:

My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not. Proverbs 1:10

Read : Genesis 3:1-5

1 NOW the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?

2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:

3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.

4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:

5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

MESSAGE:

One of the earliest weapons of the devil against both spiritual and physical well-being of a man is enticement. He has, from time immemorial, been successfully using this weapon against humanity. The first time he used it was in the Garden of Eden.

And the serpent said to the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. Genesis 3:4-6a

As a matter of fact, the fruit was not better looking than other fruits of the garden, but the mental picture that the devil painted about it suggested to the woman that the fruits was better than the ones God has generously given them to eat. Today, there are many good things of life that God has provided for humanity and His children in particular, but the enticement of the enemy has robbed many people of the joy and contentment in God's benevolence. For example; if a man goes about chasing a woman who is not his wife, he is deluded and enticed to think that the strange woman possesses something that his wife does not have. It is the lie of the devil when you think that a second marriage will give you the joy that you did not have in the first. Read this confession of the first polygamist in history:

And Lamech took unto him two wives: the name of the one was Adah, and the name of the other Zillah... And Lamech said unto his wives, Adah and Zalilah, Hear my voice; ye wives of Lamech, hearken unto my speech: for I have slain a man to my wounding, and a young man to hurt. Genesis 4:19,23

Though we may not have the full details of Lamechs lamentation in this passage, the fact remains than an increase in the number of his wives did not spare him from the agony that instigated this lament.

Beloved, in what areas have you been deceived through the enticement of the devil? I pray that the enticement will loosen its grip over you from today in Jesus name.

PRAYER POINT:

Father, when sinners come around to entice me, may I not consent in Jesus name.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR : 1 Kings 4-6 and Proverbs 15:25-16:5

GOOD MORNING.

VickieRobert should have saved Congolese Star, Papa Wemba, Prince Nelson!



"He should not have died if Vickie Robert was there." This was the statement of one of the fans of Congolese superstar, Papa Wemba, who collapsed and died while performing during a festival in Ivory Coast on Sunday April 24n 2016.

He died after falling ill during a set at the Urban Musical Festival Anoumabo (FEMUA) in Abidjan, the first major cultural event in the country since a jihadist attack on a beach resort last month.

"She would have saved him. She has the wherewithal to do it. She has done it before, severally to other performing artists and entertainers in general. I've seen her in Republic of Ireland and United Kingdom attending to these entertainers in their hotel rooms and relaxation centres before they go on stage."
This where the words of some of those who heard about Mbaba's death. These among many others are still lamenting bitterly. 

Like a flash of light it all happened. He was exuberant, gale, cheerful and hearty at his hotel room that morning just at 66 years of age. 
No one could think that day would be the last time they would be seeing him. 
Papa Wemba is dead but his life would have been saved if Vickie Robert Okere, CEO, VickieRoberts Hospitality have been around.
There have been several calls and appeals that every event promoter should hire the services of an event first Aider for any performing artists at their show, but each time these calls are made promoters out of cheer negligence do turn deaf ears to it. 
Like Wemba, he was said to be showing signs of fatigue before his performance and was drinking water at every opportunity but this was not enough to save him, a check by someone in the caliber of VickieRobert would have been perfect for him on that sad day.
Artists/celebrities are human, they too have health conditions like anyone else. Most of them are swayed by the amount promoters are paying on them and therefore neglect their health issues. Some of them do performed with strains and various forms of ailments yet, they keep it to themselves. Only a trained nurse or therapist would have detected such, like the case of Papa Wemba, Kennis Music sensational star artist , Goldie Harvey and Prince Rogers Nelson who died at his Paisley park home after a performance few days ago.

VickieRoberts specialises in providing  well being for entertainers while they are in the Uk or Ireland to perform. 
Vickie is a Registered Nurse with the Nursing And Midwifery Council Uk (NMC) where she has garnered 13 years experience in the Healthcare Sector. She is currently working as a public Health Nurse/School Nurse/ Welfare Officer in Uk. 
VRH is a certified Suicide Intervention Specialist. She also holds a qualification in Therapeutic Massage.
Over the years, almost all Nigerian entertainers who have been to UK and Ireland to perform can't do without her and this is borne out of the need for them to stay well and healthy as the saying goes; "a healthy man is a wealthy man."
VRH cares but God cures. Nevertheless, she is ready to save souls

OPEN HEAVENS MONDAY 25TH APRIL 2016 TOPIC: BELATED OFFERING?


Memorise:

Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them. Luke 24:1

Read: Luke 24:1-8

1 Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them.

2 And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre.

3 And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus.

4 And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments:

5 And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead?

6 He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee,

7 Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.

8 And they remembered his words,

MESSAGE:

Some offerings are acceptable while some are not; some offerings are given at the right time while some are belatedly offered. On the morning of the resurrection, some people brought spices to the sepulchre of Jesus, meanwhile, a few days to His crucifixion, a woman anointed Jesus Christ’s feet with expensive ointment. This woman’s kind gesture was just in time.

“When Jesus understood it, he said unto them, why trouble ye the woman? For she hath wrought a good work upon me. For ye have the poor always with you; but me ye have not always. For in that she hath poured this ointment on my body, she did it for my burial.”
Matthew 26:10-12

Incidentally, when Jesus Christ died, no one was there to perform the customary anointing before burial for Him. It was in lieu of this that certain disciples came to the resurrection morning that they may anoint Jesus in arrears. However, He had resurrected!

Beloved, there are many lessons to be learnt from this resurrection story; whenever the Holy Spirit asks you to do something, no matter how illogical it may sound, do it immediately. The reason is that if you do it later, it will be a belated offering or service. The disciples who came to anoint Jesus went back with their perfume because the Master was no longer in the grave. James, an apostle of Jesus Christ wrote:

“What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? Can faith save him? If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, and one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit.”
James 2:14-16

If I may answer the apostle; there can be no profit whatsoever. There could, however, be a loss of that person in need, and it may be a physical or spiritual loss as the fellow may die of hunger or backslide. In this same vein, whenever the Holy Spirit asks you to do something and doing that thing attracts criticisms from men, be undeterred, go ahead and do exactly as you were told. Your critics will soon realise that they were wrong to have criticised you. May the Holy Spirit continue to guide us, and may we continue to obey Him as we journey from the world to our eternal home above.

Action Point:

Listen to the Holy Spirit and do all that He asks you to do immediately.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 1 Kings 2:13-3:28 and Proverbs 15:11-24

GOOD MORNING AND VE A FRUITFUL WEEK

Good bye: Prince’s body cremated before family members and close friends



It is given unto a man to die, after this is judgment. But most times, some people always argue that the way and manner you are sent from mother earth says alot about where your eternity would be.
Just two days after the legendary singer was found dead inside his Minnesota home, at the age of 57, his body has been cremated. He was cremated yesterday afternoon at his home. 
In a statement, his publicist, Yvette Noel-Schure, said that the 57-year-old superstar’s family and friends gathered for a loving goodbye. She said:
"A few hours ago, Prince was celebrated by a small group of his most beloved: family, friends and his musicians, in a private, beautiful ceremony to say a loving goodbye,". "Prince's remains have been cremated and their final storage will remain private.  We ask for your blessings and prayers of comfort for his family and close friends at this time."
"The cause of death remains unknown and it will be at least four weeks before we receive the results of the autopsy.  An announcement will be made at a future date for a musical celebration."

Only very close friends and family members including Prince's sister 55 year old Tyka Nelson, who may inherit his fortunegathered at his home- Paisley Park Saturday afternoon to pay their respects to the singer.
                                       
Hundreds of fans were gathered outside. People emerged from the estate and handed out purple boxes to some fans. Each box contained a handout with a color photo of the late musician and a T-shirt with “3121” printed on it, which is the title of a Prince album.
The Midwest Medical Examiner's office confirmed on Friday that an autopsy was performed on Prince and that results may not be available for several weeks to come.
