IGNORANCE RELEASES THE BEAST

All of a sudden the man neatly dressed takes off his tie and shirt, ready to fight! All of a sudden the beautiful lady buys an axe and shatters the windscreen of her husband’s car. All of a sudden two lovely couples choose weapons to destroy one another! Why? The beast is released! The oppression of ignorance is on display!

Life requires maturity but Maturity takes spirituality! Life is beastly with unmanaged emotions. Emotion is an expression of content value. Value is an expression of worth. Ignorance has no worth but fury to living.

The inability to contain ones emotions is the manifestation of ignorance. Emotions can become beastly. When you see seduction, you see the real manifestations of a beast. When you see anger in action you see the true color of a ruthless beast. Many relationships and marriages have lost their value and bliss to the cruel release of the beast of anger. Anger is nothing but mismanaged emotions.

Solomon said quietly in Proverbs 25:28 that He that [hath] no rule over his own spirit [is like] a city [that is] broken down, [and] without walls.

Inside every emotion is a spirit and when control is lacking, a beast is released. Beasts are ruthless in display, so is anger. Have you seen an angry person? He or she demonstrates foolishness. An angry wife will slap and stab her husband; an angry husband will always beat his wife with words, attitude and act like a child. Anger between the two people will manifest in a fight because beasts attack. Anger harbors a killer within it. Anger will always kill something valuable. Now you understand better why the good book of all knowledge admonishes us that people perish for lack of knowledge. Anger is the release of the beast of ignorance. In marriages that beast (anger) kills the bliss.

Many homes that ought to be Garden of Eden have been turned into a wilderness of unhappiness and horror. Bishop Oyedepo once made a powerful illustration that “when you keep a lion as a pet, you must ensure you watch its claws as it’s grow or else someday the lion would manifest the beast in it and then you will become the prey”. The ability to manage one’s emotions is also considered a priceless quality in the workplace, business and ministry.

Anger is a beast you must tame and make lame permanently or it will thwart your destiny. Anger is revealed to be the description of the content of a fool. Foolishness is the offspring of ignorance. This makes us understand that the inability to control your emotions qualifies you as a fool and a beast in action.

The preacher announced in Ecclesiastes chapter seven and in verse nine that be not hasty in thy spirit to be angry: for anger resteth in the bosom of fools. Anger is the expression of the oppression of ignorance. A beast is an unpleasant personality! Anger is a wild and uncontrolled animal prowling gregariously towards the merchandise of evil! When a person is angry, he loses his personality. All of a sudden, the man corporately dressed takes off his tie and shirt and ready to fight! All of a sudden a father drives away and disowns his son or daughter. The Beast of ignorance is released in anger! Had God disowned you with your libels of iniquity, would you still be around. If God marks iniquity, who can stand! God is not a man and that is why we must be like God to secure peaceful and happy living!  In one of my emotional intelligence trainings A woman made the home so uncomfortable for her husband in anger that he chose to live in the garage of his office. She made life unbearable for him because she misinterpreted a past invitation she found in his suitcase. My summation was that she was immature to tame the beast of ignorance expressed in unmanaged emotional reaction.

A wise man said anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die! How foolish? Mark Twain rightly puts it this way anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than anything to which it is poured! For me I think anger is presenting a harmer to a carpenter when you have the nail in the middle of your head! You know everything is a nail to the harmer!

Emotional intelligence is nothing but the way we respond to reactions. Reaction against reactions is only a volcanic eruption of ignorance. A soft answer turns away wrath! Emotional intelligence is using your response to control other people’s reaction. Every living being has emotions but our control valves differ!

When your anger is rising, think of consequences but that is when you still have your reasoning! Best is to quit it before it begins! No one will punish you for your anger but you will be punished by your anger. You released the beast without guard!

We must tame and wipe out the beast, we must mind our response to the beast of anger! However, only a regenerated soul can handle emotions because a regenerated soul is controlled by the indwelling of the Almighty God by his word. Praise God! Mark in his gospel writes no one can enter into a strong man’s house without first of all binding him if he must dispossess him of his possession. Ignorance make your mind the habitation of the beast of anger. Why house a beast? 

Mark 3:27 “No man can enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house”

Do you lose your temper freely? You are becoming if not already a beast, but then If the beast of anger is a strong man, who can bind it?

And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Mattew 16:19!

Verily I say unto you, whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Mattew 18:18!

On the two occasions Jesus spoke to his disciples that they can and have the authority to bind the strong man. This then means only disciples can bind the beast of anger because they have the knowledge of the keys to do so. Like I have learnt No door is as big as the key but if you don’t have the key no matter how small, you will always be stranded and left out in the doldrums of captivity.

Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, [then] are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. John 8:31-32!

Until you are a disciple of Jesus, you will always release the beast! 

You need to wipe away your ignorance by the renewal of your mind. Go for the knowledge of the truth so that you can be free from manifesting the oppression of the beast of anger ignorantly.

SOMEONE TO MEET and SOMEONE TO MISS

In life there is always a person to meet in other to reach your placement in destiny and there are also people you must miss if you must reach your placement in life. God uses men as angels to help us reach his prepared place for us. If only some people missed the occult gang or that strange friend, they would never have died or probably be insane. If only the young prophet missed the evil older prophet maybe he would have lived. Mind who you meet, know who to miss!

Behold I send an Angel before thee to keep thee in the way and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared. Exodus 23:20!

It was God that organized the meeting of the Peter with the man at the gate of beautiful who had been there in a bad shape for 40 years. The truth is that what you are looking for in life is in the hands of someone, there are people in form of angels that God made to usher you into your prepared place in life.

Every man has a place but need a bridge. There is always someone God sends to uplift another man. Joseph was recommended by someone, Daniel was identified by someone, Esther was introduced by someone into the contest that brought her into the palace. Naman was advised by a maid into his wholeness from leprosy that would have rubbished his living despite his so called status. Many people just wear status but are heavily challenged. It is not man you need but God to bring the man your way or direct your step to the man. The man at the pool of Bethesda was waiting and looking for a man instead of God. Until he saw Jesus, his position remained. You can’t find help until you find God. God also recommends, He recommended Bezaleel to Moses. He recommended Jesus, this is my beloved son, hear ye him and everything began to hear him.

One thing lead to another, everything is connected. souls that resemble attract inevitably. 

I don’t know how long you have been in that position, situation or condition, if God direct your steps to walk in the way that will meet the one who has your miracle; you are free from the hold of that syndrome. My prayer is that God would order your steps a right to meet the one He has sent to you and make you miss the one the enemy has set for you in Jesus name.

Do have a sensitive day !

THE IDLE SOUL…

…the idle soul will suffer hunger. Proverbs 19:15

If you are not thinking, you will be hungry for deception. Deception is looking for solution and satisfaction in futile places. Futile places are the environment of assumed knowledge.

Thinking appropriates what is available to you in the reality of your mind. Our mind is so important that God cannot visit a man without his mind. This is why when the soul sins it make a man dead. Assumption is personal crucifixion to misery. When you assume you undervalue your true possibilities. An active soul reels out solutions with precision. Active souls are renewed mind. Inactive souls are drabs of misfortune soaked in assumption, assumption is a reflection of nothingness.

Assumption is an ad axial of deception. A state of unawareness of one’s own ignorance. Assumption is the deepest grave of ignorance. Economic analyst will always gone into hiding during economic depressions because they have no answers. Economic is dependent on assumptions.

Life and reality does not thrive in assumptions. I do not think any man would like to assume that he is foolish? No way but many live in assumption daily. How? Their lifestyle and choices.

The soul consists of the mind, the will and the emotion. These are the factors that man is a social component of the earth and humane.

Idle means not working right? Now imagine that a man is idle in his mind, emotions, and will? It means he is not associable and will suffer dryness, become cruel and not know pains. This is a devastating position of any being, complete drought of life!

An idle soul cannot reason and therefore cannot make a good resolve. Opportunities and possibilities would be scarce.

How to get the soul active:

1) Seek the Truth.

2) Accept the Truth

3) Walk in the Truth

4) Activate your thinking by studying relevant materials in your field as against the Truth.

5) Associate rightly. No one parties with a fool and expects miracles. your circle encircles your circumstance.

The word of God is the Truth! John 1:1-5, John 14:6.

God created man for an abundant life hence he requested the prosperity of his soul! 3 John 2. When the soul is prosperous, hunger stay at bay!

Get your soul active!

FOUR MASTER KEYS TO INCREASING JOB SATISFACTION AND IMPROVING PRODUCTIVITY IN THE WORKPLACE:

Like every business or organization, every man has his or her target and vision for living. The workplace is the furnace that makes this possible but because these aspirations are often choked, the quality of contribution and performance is often jeopardized.

In today’s corporate world, there is more  of awareness, tension and competition than ever before. The core corporate assets satisfaction and fulfillment is what powers up the productivity of the firm or organization. Employee inspiration is a top matter in tough times and bottom line improvement is equally a subject not be ignored. How then can organizations achieve this awesome balance?

  1. Build the organizational template but work with the choices of the employees.

One way businesses and organizations build their productivity is through career path planning and skill development. The issue is that employers are selfish. They mostly fix the skills to learn or courses to take. Fine, a need analysis may have been conducted based on work demands but not usually on employee personal growth plan. The freedom to choose creates an air of fulfillment and personal growth. Productivity improves because the employee’s has some power to decide his involvement. Employers are mostly afraid that employees would be selfish as well. The balance is in workplace trust!

When you get to a restaurant, you are offered a menu from which you make a choice. Why do we have receptionist? To welcome the comfort of transacting with the organization and serve the client with a service experience. If organizations create a card of training menu that employees tick their choices, the harvest sends a signal to employee worth, talent pool value and that can help the organization determine the direction of her future productivity.

  1. Let the employees set the target but create all the support.

The ideal and future workplace demands employee involvement if their engagement would be most profitable. Organizations and businesses have objectives so they are often the ones who set the target but to achieve greater productivity and employee satisfaction the management should make obvious the big picture and allow employees to set targets that would achieve it. When employees have the confidence of support and the regularity of appreciation and recognition, performance and productivity will soar because employees are inspired.

Employee know themselves and can push themselves at will, all they need is inspiration. Allowing employee’s set the target commits them and where it doesn’t meet the big picture, it becomes the minimum expectation while more is inspired from the workforce. People are mostly committed to their decisions even when they know it comes with a reward and it’s a responsibility for which they have been engaged.

  1. Create a generic life orientation.

Many employees have personally mismanaged lives that pull strings on their performance. Businesses and organizations are usually callous about employees’ personal challenges. It may be impossible to detect employees’ personal challenges but there are generic life orientations that work through the stream of every man’s life. Examples of these generic life orientations include Personal finance and family life structuring. These life orientation help shape the personal growth of the employees which in turn shapes their contribution. Like i have many times observed, it is impossible for a frustrated employee to provide quality service and hit excellence. The psychological pitch of man contributes to his productivity. This sense of belonging explains to the workforce that as the organization seeks it performance improvement it equally seeks the workforce personal growth. If the organization or business is growing and the machinery for its growth are not growing, the imbalance will pollute the future of the organization’s bottom line. One strong way to maximize productivity and drive performance is to demonstrate that you care about the life and growth of the workforce.

The organization and business of the future will from time to time put together this life orientation or create a communication system that implements it.

  1. Entrench workplace Trust

Productivity and employee satisfaction is an intra and inter person condition of work system. Trust is the comfort of freedom, the test of previous, present and future knowledge. It is a harmony of perception, intention and expectation. Trust is fragile, hard to create and cheap to destroy. When trust dies, failure lives! Business and corporate performance is a product of a trusted process; each employee must be able to delightfully rely on the process and the input of the next man. Quality Productivity follows a comprehensive support plan.

Trust is a priceless virtue in the workplace. Leadership is easier and management is effective with trust. Trust in the workplace has two way dimensional influence from top to the bottom and vice versa. If you are going to break the rules don’t expect anyone to obey it. Business ethics are guidepost to business and

Organizational culture, it is this culture that is reflected in the workforce to attract customer and client loyalty.

Trust polishes productivity and performance because it relates to self, task and the next man. Employees are seeking trust worthy employers while employers are seeking loyal employees; the meeting point is workplace trust. Trust is created by openness, understanding, integrity, fairness, competence and consistency.

When leadership respects shared values above personal gains, respects employees’ opinions and feedback, communicate and live the business and organizational visions, and does what is right regardless of personal risk, it is building trust in its environment. That way contribution is powered, fear is deleted, teamwork is engineered and performance is improved.

When these four keys are engaged employees are happier and productivity is enhanced. Move up your bottom line and increase the potency of your workforce.

Move up your bottom line and increase the potency of your workforce.

CREATED TO MULTIPLY

Multiplication is the identity of God and therefore we are creatures of multiplication. fruitfulness mean increasing what you carry, multiply your knowledge by sharing, increase kindness by being kind to someone, be true in business to multiply truth in business, multiply abundant life by sharing the love of God. There is no infertility or fruitlessness with those abide in His word! Gen 1:20 -28!
 
In that workplace make the glory of God known by being exceptional, be different. In my workplace my subordinate have access to share their pains and we think it through together. that was what Jesus meant when he told Peter, when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren. if you are knowledgeable, cure the ignorance of others. If you are saved, save others. if you are good make others good. There is nothing hidden or new, all we have are gifts from God! By multiplication we give life a meaning!
 
Have you not observed that businesses in the production thrive if well managed with wisdom because they serve many. Knowledge multipliers too are never forgotten because someone will learn what he has never known and swear a blessing to the man who has settled his quest and water his thirst. we must multiply wisdom to serve and fill the table of the heart of men!
 
No animal goes for antenatal neither do they undergo cesarean session yet they conceive and deliver with ease. They are not the image of God but you are the in the design of God. you will bring forth with ease in Jesus name.
 
Man is the express image of God, therefore man is not permitted to be barren because God is not and if conception is supernatural then delivery will be supernatural. The living shall come out of the living. Maybe you are also pregnant with a vision, trust God and you will bring it forth to the glory of God.
 
Every word of God brought forth abundantly! we are fruitful beings irrespective of times. God’s word says “we are fruitful and created to multiply”. Once what you are doing is in line with His word, expect fruitfulness and multiplication.
 
we shall soon celebrate and be celebrated in Jesus name. 

SEEK THE GRACE OF GOD!

When grace comes, goodness comes!
 
Bird dont struggle to fly,neither do fishes struggle to swim. That is the work of GRACE. GRACE is the ease of living. May we live in the riches of GRACE and find peace to live life!
 
We grow in grace by living a righteous life. when we abide in grace we find mercy and go in favor. Many times people think you border them when you become passionate about righteousness. i have discovered that righteousness is an economic advise. How? see what Solomon a man of wisdom said in Proverbs 23:18-23!
 
For surely there is an end;and thine expectation shall not be cut off. Hear thou, my son, and be wise, and guide thine heart in the way. Be not among winebibbers; among riotous eaters of flesh: For the drunkard and the glutton shall come to poverty: and drowsiness shall clothe [a man] with rags. Hearken unto thy father that begat thee, and despise not thy mother when she is old. Buy the truth, and sell [it] not; [also] wisdom, and instruction, and
understanding.
 
Expectations are cut off when people ignore instruction, disregard wisdom and undervalue understanding. No one can travel far in the journey of life without grace. Grace comes from learning from God and men from God’s school. Jesus was full of grace and truth because he learnt to hear His father and sat under teachers. Matt 11:27-30! John 1:12-14! The wisdom of the wise becomes foolishness in crisis times but divine wisdom is an unbreakable craft! I Cor 1:19-20! Grace comes is seeking God’s face not just His hands in prayers, fasting and seeking the lost to help them see the grace of God that surpass the entire effort of man. I Chronicles 16:11, Hebrew 4:16! 2 Tim 2:15! Psalms 27:4,8!
The truest form of knowledge is to know thy creator and thy self! 
 
Our expectation shall not be cut off as we seek the grace of God that makes the journey of life glorious! Do have a great weekend.

SALARY WAS and IS NOT THE MASTER PLAN..

Life is deeper than we see it, your employer didnt tell you he had a plan for you so why are you dissapointed that he expressed his limitation to carry you on with an unexpected sack?

Financial reward is the least consideration in God’s agenda for man. it is peace and fulfillment that determines the wealth of your living. employment with daily stress with cripple your worth eventually, fighting daily to cope because we focus on survival keep people enslaved to salary. Engagement in your assignment is where your true life in. Your assignment make you different and bring your uniqueness peculiar. How do you know your employment didn’t package a plan for you?

Nassim nicholas profoundly said One of the most harmful addictions of life is a monthly salary”  and Richard Bayer Said “ Whoever mentions salary first is in a weaker position”. I am telling you, your true salary is the difference you make in other people’s life! it is not about your salary but about reality and truth! move your drive towards daily income and secured cash flow. that is business and not an empty head can hit that gold mine. only divine direction can lead you there. Psalms 23:1!

Go back to your employment letter and read it very carefully, can you single out any plan for your life apart from your financial entitlement but life is beyond figures. Numbers have never tackle issues. it is not quantity but quality of the quantity. what is your salary with daily fear? Go to work not knowing the your employers verdict before the day goes down. A young banker was sent on official training on his job and upon his return was greeted with his sack letter after traveling a long journey. A young lady was on maternity leave and was recalled from that maternity leave to be handed her sack letter! where then is the hope in your job? its time to engage God’s assignment for you.

Check the training you get at work or on the job, they are purely job skills no iota of life skill(s). I choose never to perform my job without life skills because it is life that determines the health and productivity of the job. For example how can you expect service excellence from a frustrated employee? how do you expect quality assessment from a biased mind?How can a disturbed man who had no value for family have value for his workforce? how can an insolent lady have respect for her co workers? we trivialize the basic and gun for the exotic blindly. i made a personal law and everywhere and in every location i worked during my employee days in the bank can attest to it. So all and some of my subordinates that may have been affected by the change of structure in the banking sector today, those light counsels will ring a loud bell now. see what happened to Steve Jobs when salary was unacceptable he said the following amongst many..

So we went to Atari and said “hey , we’ve got this amazing thing going , even built with some of your parts and what do you think about funding us? Or we will give it to you , we just want to do it, Pay our Salary, we will come and work for you. And they said “NO”. So then we went to Hewlett-Packard, and they said , “Hey, we dont need you. you havent got through college yet. what is the implication of this statement, men may disqualify you but life and the gift of God inside you have already qualified you for all you will ever become in your assignment. it is not salary, salary is a very limited vehicle to guaranty a save arrival in the journey of life.

Steve Jobs further admonished “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

Salary is not God’s master plan for our living, salary is just to clear your bills, it is not an investment in or on your life, it is your personal development that is the insurance of your living and investment. it is what you eat that you can fly with. what you know no one can take from you except yourself. The employee is only a vehicle for the employer’s wealth, your personal development is the vehicle for your own life. your employment is only a preparation for your engagement. your engagement is the assignment for your life which is God’s master plan for your living and its fulfillment.

Check your incentives, which is of them is life related. only few employers today that can invite a life covenant life coach to teach their employees about their own vision, something totally outside the job. they cannot because they are afraid they will loose their horses which is a function of blatant ignorance, that move will galvanise productivity because the people will have a lifestyle change that will activate their contribution in preparation for their own desired placement.
Your employer has provision for sick leave and allowance because he expect you to fall sick but no one on assignment for God is ever sick because he is simply abiding the demands of his covenant plan. Men and women, it is time to be consciously invest in our selves while on the job, i love the words of one of my teachers Emmanuel James popularly known as Jim Rohn, He said ” work harder on yourself than you do on your job”.

God is more interested in you than you are interested and dependent on your salary. there is reserved wealth for us but it cannot be access without certified approval. Study to show thyself approved a man that will not be ashamed rightly dividing the word of truth. These moment of sack will expose many people’s ignorance, you will now see what the man on street knows better than you that has been deceived by the glass prison of air conditioned office. Now you will truly understand that the worth of a man’s life is not in the abundance of his possession. Be humble to learn or start learning, it is the genesis of starting well. My message for you is that your destiny is not with your employment but rather in your engagement which is God’s assignment for your life. Now is the time to go find that assignment so that you can no employ all that you have learnt on the job like i am happily doing.

Until you make Jesus the driver of your life, there is not safety in your journey of life!

Ke kind to share this with all who need this right now.
