Accuser Part II

(Kindly check previous post for Part I)

Just as I earlier pointed out, an accuser is after your destiny! To slow you down, demoralise you and make you feel unworthy. Most times because you have a grace they have fallen short of or a height you are but they cannot attain!

The most unfortunate part will be if you don’t know your purpose or the importance of your calling, you will answer to every name calling!!

It is easier to overcome their ‘ministry‘ when you already are sure of who you are, you will quickly identify jealousy, envy,strife etc

I take a few biblical examples:

Jesus was accused so many times while he was on earth. There are so many examples as to how he was accused. He was not even received in His own clan, when He healed, they complained He was healing on sabbath, when He showed love they said He was sitting with unbelievers.
At a point it was His disciples they had issues with, they were accused of not paying tithe, the other time it was about them not fasting…..
Even on the cross, the bad mouth, bad belle people boku!!!

Job:
Job 2:3-5
The LORD said to Satan, “Have you considered My servant Job? For there is no one like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man fearing God and turning away from evil. And he still holds fast his integrity, although you incited Me against him to ruin him without cause.” Satan answered the LORD and said, “Skin for skin! Yes, all that a man has he will give for his life. “However, put forth Your hand now, and touch his bone and his flesh; he will curse You to Your face.”

Isn’t that just harsh? Smh!

The scenario happened between God and the devil, the devil wanted to slander and demerit Job, thank God that God is God,who knows all, still He had to show the devil he was wrong by testing Job.

Joseph: he was accused by his brothers, later by his boss’ wife.

Esther and Modecai were accused by Hamman due to sheer jealousy.

David: due to the lack of self esteem or is it the presence of low self esteem,insecurity and jealousy of Saul who he served sought to kill him.

It’s always safe not to be involved with slanderes and critics,no need to grant them access because they will definitely invite unnecessary test, storm and battles into your life, you might win at last because the truth of now is always the truth of 20yrs and a child if God can never be disadvantaged, it’s just that it all just does not worth it! It’s always ok to avoid war than to prepare for war!!!

The day you realise any of these people in your circle, no matter how close they seem to be, no matter how old the relationship or friendship, they should seize to have access to you, longevity is not in any way legality.

In recent times I have had to carefully choose who and what I listen to, lest I be dragged into the Web of wailers, both in doing, supporting or in being a victim!!! I guard jealously my heart because from there comes the issues of life.

Psalm 119:69-70
“Though the arrogant have smeared me with lies, I keep your precepts with all my heart. Their hearts are callous and unfeeling, but I delight in your law”

As humans, we need to evaluate our life at intervals to shut out toxic relationships. Who is speaking to and about your life matters, who you give access to your information matters, wisdom is profitable to direct.

Do you have encouragers or slanderes?

Always remember you are not always the problem, they could be the problem.
You just keep the good work,walk circumspectly, abstain from all appearances of evil and you will surely be a victor!!

1 Peter 2:12
Keep your behavior excellent among the Gentiles, so that in the thing in which they slander you as evildoers, they may because of your good deeds, as they observe them, glorify God in the day of visitation.

I urge you to terminate quickly every relationship you have with an accuser…..

As for me: I am no longer a slave to fear! I am a child of God!!

Nigeria Decides 2019 :Things to Know

As Nigerians prepares for the 2019 General Elections, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has released steps for voters to perform their civic responsibility.

The election which was rescheduled for tomorrow 22nd of February 2019 due to issues has said to have generated more international concern. Below are steps as a voter to cast your vote for your preferred candidate.

Step 1
Upon arrival at the polling unit, join the queue and present yourself to the INEC official (APO111) at the polling unit who will determine whether you are at the correct polling unit and check if the photograph on the Permanent Voter Card (PVC) matches your face.
If satisfied, he/she will direct you to the next INEC official (APO1).

Step 2
The official (APO1) will request for your PVC to confirm that your card is genuine and your details, using the smart card reader. He/she will ask you to place your finger on the card reader to confirm that the PVC belongs to you by ascertaining, the card reader will contain the name, photograph and finger prints of all those registered in their polling unit.

Step 3
You will then meet the next official (APO11) who will request for your PVC to confirm that your name and details are in the voter’s register. Your name will be ticked and your PVC returned to you.
He/ she will then apply indelible ink to the cuticle of your appropriate finger for that election to show you have been accredited to vote.

(If your name is not found on the register, you will not be allowed to vote).

Step 4
The presiding officer (PO) stamps, signs and endorses the date at the back of the Ballot Paper.
The PO will roll the ballot paper inwardly with the printed side inwards and give to you. He/she will then direct you to the voting cubicle where you vote in secret.

Step 5
You will stain your appropriate finger for the election with the ink provided then use your stained finger to mark the space or box provided on the ballot paper for your preferred candidate/party. Roll the marked ballot paper (in the manner the PO gave to you).

Step 6
Then leave the voting cubicle and drop the ballot paper in the ballot box in full view of people at the polling unit.

Step 7
You will then leave the polling unit or wait if you so choose in an orderly and peaceful manner to work the process up to declaration of result.

Kindly note that the result of each polling unit shall be pasted at the unit and for everyone to see.

Please be aware that there are things you must not do at voting sights, INEC has sternly warned against these things

  1. No campaigning for votes, or persuasion of voters to not vote for a candidate.
  2. No shouting of slogans concerning the election, or in support of any party.
  3. No one should be in possession of an offensive weapon or wear any apparel calculated to intimidate voters.
  4. No one is allowed to use a vehicle bearing the colour or symbol of a political party or candidate
  5. No one is allowed to loiter at polling units without lawful excuse after voting or after being refused to vote.
  6. Normal one is allowed to snatch or destroy any election materials.
  7. No one is allowed to blare siren.

Mobile phones are prohibited inside the polling booths when a vote is being cast, but can be used around the polling units.

President Muhammadu Buhari mentioned earlier this week that he’s instructed security agencies to be “ruthless” in dealing with ballot box snatchers, so you might want to take particular note of number 6, or pretty much everything, just to be safe.

Note that you can report election offences to the INEC situation room.
On each election day, according to INEC, polling stations will open for accreditation and voting from 8:00am to 2.00pm.

“However, voters on the queue before the close of poll at 2:00pm will be accredited and allowed to vote,” the commission noted.

INEC has urged Nigerian voters to be law-abiding

Value Relationships

We sometimes do not appreciate others to the fullest capacity at which we should.

Some are Lucky because they have the chance to re-think and re-evaluate so they can finally admire others and appreciate roles they have played in their lives.

This thought process of acknowledging the role of people is stirred by memories of people that have transcended the shores of mortals and it has become impossible to see, feel, touch or laugh with them anymore. At least not in this territory called “Earth“.

Other set of people are those that due to life happenings you became far apart, living in different continent with a new way of life and other things that makes us to miss each others daily activities.

There are others who due to our resolutions and goals have separated us and reduced the intimacy in our relationships.

We should often make the best use of every time and situation we have and make the best of relationships, be it family, workplace or any other.

Cherish the friends you can literally touch,hug, smile with and at, gist and sleep beside, these moments won’t last forever.

Take not for granted those far away that you can still visit, check up on them.
Appreciate the ones you can call, face time, video call and Skype.

For the ones that have due to resolution or decision become strangers, you can only wonder or try to understand why it has become so, after which you will choose either to cherish the past times or do away with the memories.

For those you cannot see anymore , we can pray that they rest in peace, miss them and then pray for them once again.

To those that have lost a loved one either to death, bad relationship or personal decision I pray for the fortitude to bear the Loss and Pain.

I also pray for you :strength to carry on!!

My people take the comment section of this page to mention that person you miss, pray for that person you lost

Message that person that is still alive!

Profess your Love, show how much you care!!

Make that call!!! Appreciate those that are still near and dear to your heart!!!

Selah !!
