Our world is filled with professionals especially in my core training accounting but today we see the use of skills, education, experience, access against human development through manipulation. Corruption has become an all encompassing crime which I call corporate manipulation. It is a pity that there is a poor advocacy and establishment of/for quality.

Manipulation is presenting something in a manner that is false but personally advantageous. Corporate manipulation is using professional skills, education and training with character deficiency to oppress humanity to which you are a part. How healthy is your practice of your profession and how aligned are you in practice to the faith for which you are accountable?

I trained as an accountant but just for no particular reason I wasn’t interested in practicing either as an accountant or auditor but I knew my fears was manipulation. During the time of my training I was intentional about having exceptional knowledge but still a baby Christian and church regular but today I know better. Balaam was probably an accountant or an auditor that was visited with corporate manipulation. In practicing as an accountant and/or auditor, professional certification is not enough; you need the faith of the fourth man in the fire to live as a testimony. Are you an accountant, auditor or a professional, read through with a thirst that God will envelop you with the cloak of His power to represent Him as you serve in the corrupt and manipulative world of today. The true profession of a Christian is actually accounting for stewardship which is the core training of understanding the books of account.

The Economic Accountability factor

Accountability is one of the core interest and commitment of God. He emphasized it all through scriptures. God is not a man that He should lie; and that means the gullible or merely trained man could lie or be manipulated but God cant. This is accountability in its entire dimensions. God loves accountants but not all accountants that love God as much as He loves them. Why the special love of God for accountants? This is because if all the aspects of accounting and auditing would do what is required, then humanity will neither suffer nor will economies of the world experience recessions or downturns. It’s a pity professional have suddenly become the porn on the chessboards.

There is no organ of government that is devoid of accountants and auditors, at state and federal level they are regarded as accountant general and auditor general. In private and corporate businesses, they are called finance managers, accountants, chief or senior accountants and so on, yet on the truth and fairness scale of the profession, they are grossly imbalanced.

Painful enough is that all accountants, auditors and financial managers have the ears of leadership and authority which ought to be the opportunity to influence change but rather they have become the stooge of corporate manipulation because of their position about the truth.

Anybody may be intercepted but when it is the accountant, access is free. That is the influence the accountant and auditor commands. The truth is the fundamental ethic for any professional. No matter our intelligence, there isn’t any substitute to the voice of God, it is simply supreme! It is the truth!

The world economic health lies with all aspects of accounting, if only the financial accountants, cost and management accountants, finance managers and auditors would do the needful there would be no poverty but even distribution of the corporate wealth. Every compromise in the profession of accountancy and accountability devalues the figures of true productivity. Failure to establish the right value in processing and reporting the transaction finances of private and public enterprises deepens the suffering of men because the effects are passed on. Today what we see is corporate manipulation and ethical compromise; it is alarming that even accountants in the church would manipulate church accounts in the very presence of the eternal accountant and everlasting auditor.

I know that worldwide, IFRS (International Financial Reporting Standard) is a single set of accounting and financial reporting standards developed by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) intended for global use by entities in all types of economies ranging from developing countries, emerging markets and unto well-established industrialized nations. It is understood that the purpose of IFRS is to provide financial statement users with consistent and comparable information across borders. According to the IFRS Foundation, the standards are currently legally approved for use in over 100 countries, including the European Union countries and more than two-thirds of the nations comprising the Group of Twenty (also referred to as the G20). Further, 52% of Fortune Global 500 companies use IFRS. All this facts are not sufficient for the learned accountant and auditor; they can guide manipulation of figures and saliently window dress in the short term. Worst still even forensic examinations can be manipulated in our local environment. In the western world the accounting crimes are normally highly sophisticated but brilliant and uncompromising fraud examiners still find them out.

The Love Factor

The question in your professional practice is, what do you love and who do you love? True love conquers all be it corruption, compromise or corporate manipulation.

Without love no accountant can practice accountability. Matthew 22:36-40! Without the love of God and man, accountability becomes selfish and is a deceptive propaganda. We see vested interest take the wheel and manipulation infests the profession. Love is not self centeredness or self conceitedness, love does not undervalue, revalue or overvalue in processing, costing, declaring, surveying or reporting. The professional meaning of love is to give the truth of your skill and training in changing the lives of men not oppressing humanity with it, the degree does not matter, the act is the matter. You can’t claim love or profess faith or a belief system that uphold truth and manipulate process with the authority of access or decision. What we give others on our desk; department and reports are the proof of the sincerity of our love for God and fellow men. The day the love of Solomon changed direction, his frustration began. (I king 3:1, 11:1). Are you a true accountant, finance manager or auditor? Have you laid the practice of your profession on the altar of the truth or are you a contributor to the penury and misery of the humanity that you belong?

The accounting profession and its aspect seem to contribute or are contributing to the impoverishment of humanity by circumventing the truth in the discharge of their professional training. The obvious is that, Ethical values are ignored because the fundamental virtue of the truth and fairness that the profession is meant to uphold is missing in individual consciences,professional bodies either by personal manipulation through selfish interest and connivance through threats to life, survival and status have also lost luster. Major reports are decided by interest not process. This is where disappointment of Christian accountants or auditors or professionals lies.

My grouse is that when an accountant or auditor is manipulated, he becomes a thief that steals the wealth of many, kills the hopes of the nation and destroys the influence of his kingdom representation. This is what places doubt on the efficacy of the gospel of the kingdom. John 10:10 but when the accountants and auditors refuses to be manipulated they give life to economic resources and abundance to humanity. There is certainly no fraudulent movement of funds or loot of national or public treasury that is possible without the accountant and the auditor. Accountants are scrupulously trained with pernicious skills that could prevent, correct, maintain, represent true and fair state of private and public transactions but it takes the truth in them to keeps the ethical value. An auditor too has the prowess to detect, correct and report errors or financial misrepresentation by the authority of his independent opinion that qualifies the accounting process. This can only happen if truth is sated in the heart of such an auditor. This entire misdemeanor redefines and bedevils the wealth of humanity. All the vices man suffers are results of man’s inhumanity to man, the unfair advantage of authorized skills to manipulate right to wrong without conscience.

As a quality improvement analyst,

Recently i was speaking with a Christian academic Dr of Measurement on quality and his summary was that “there is an adoption of poor quality in the system”.

The Devotion Factor:

God made a garment that lasted for 40 years for His children in the wilderness. That is an unbroken record of quality. what is the quality of your professional practice? Is your integrity sacrificed on the altar of corporate manipulation and survival?

Who shall be against you if you be a follower of that which is true?

Today, my hoax is that if you don’t have devotion, you will be devoured by corporate manipulation. I know there are Generally Accepted Accounting Principles and International Auditing Standards but what about the Spiritually Commanded Covenants? We are not blessed by our package but rather how much we honor the truth in real terms. Jesus was born in a manger but there is no aspect of corporate and professional management that He did not exemplify.

An auditor is to express his independent opinion on the true and fair state of the books of account and to detect fraud, subterfuge and intentional misstatements. An accountant prepares books of account in accordance with professional standards with details of accuracy, rightness of transaction processing in honor of the concepts and principles that vouches the confidence of all stakeholders.

Every church service is filled with professionals but how many truly profess the truth in their corporate and professional discharge. It is not enough to be a chartered accountant or a fellow of certified auditors, character and position on truth is the real deal.

Today, the professional bodies have lost the creed that created the regulation they seek to pursue, character is not only a personal virtue but also a professional one despite intelligence cum brilliance. Character is that holiness of integrity that follows a man’s belief system. Without a spiritual standard, no ethical standard can work true regulation to support true and fair state of the economy. The actions and corporate submissions of accountants and auditors guide the health of the economy because all the reports of businesses (private and corporate) are conducted into the national treasury. Truth is like madness in the face of compromise. 

In the pursuit of your professional rendition, I pray that you don’t company with lot’s wife in marriage who will always look back to physical materialism rather than professional materiality of true and fair conduct. Many professionals have been sacrificed by the unquenchable taste, exorbitant lifestyle and demands from home that their package cannot handle, yet they want to honor them unjustly. The children of this world would do anything and engage anyone to extinguish your faith and scuttle your life. wicked counselors are the ambassador of wrong decisions. Your personal devotion is not negotiable. Judas are everywhere in the corporate world that would not blink an eye to want to waste your life if you stand for the truth. However, the Almighty that neither sleeps nor slumber will never leave nor forsake his own if they will remain bold with the truth. Read what Proverbs 11:8 says.

There isn’t any difference between the accountant who falsified or doctored figures, and the medical doctor who connived with others to kill a patient or an abortionist or a judge that cleared a rogue or the auditor that unqualified a misrepresented financial report or the police that rented out his gun or the nurse that steal or substitutes children or the mortician that cuts out dead human parts for sale or the legislator who sponsored a vested interest bill. They shall all give accounts individually of their corporate pollution and manipulation.

If you stand for the truth, I can assure you that you have God’s backing. There is therefore condemnation to them who are in Christ Jesus, who walk according to the spirit of light! If your professional practice is a seed sown to the flesh, then you will reap corruption and death but if it is a seed sown to the truth, you will reap eternal life. The fugitive is always at large when there isn’t any pursuit. The bondage of fear lives with the professional that is unjust and unfair but truth is cannot be assassinated. Where is your stand? Like the steward, you shall give account of your stewardship. You are where you are as a professional for a purpose not pollution.

God is not like lousy regulators and pretentious professional bodies; He will reward every man according to his works. No one invests in manipulation and makes gain and no one can invest the proceeds of manipulation and expect a profitable yield. You may get financial and material benefits but assuredly accompanies by the sorrow effects of the unjust source. There is a built in devourer in all manipulative schemes.

After being an accountant or auditor, we shall all give account to God in the final analysis. His books of records cannot be burnt or stolen to close the case, God cannot be bribed. So practicing as an accountant or auditing or related profession, you are already judging ourselves while we live. It is time to turn corporate manipulation to corporate ministration and live with a positive reserve.  If you choose to be different, God will distinguish you!

Did I sound like a preacher? No, it is just a concerned heart for our tomorrow. What will happen to our children with all that we know and how we have practiced our profession? It is up to us all.

Dedicated to A.B.U. U97 ACCOUNTING CLASS, wherever you are all over world, I love you all.

No matter the area of life or endeavor you find yourself, it is safe to mind the way you treat others, the repercussions of intentionally hurting others for fun is grave! many people have planted ignominy and thick cloud of struggle over the years ahead of them. Don’t let your mindless actions empty your future. The future is delicate! Some years back, a teenager profoundly defined fun and pleasure as things and activities that get you off normal for a while. There is one thing I have discovered life keeps a file! In the habitat of fun, many have incurred long term struggles over their life. Many years after men would have forgotten their deeds, time keeps the record and maturity of hurt brings them to bear!

Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth! And the tongue [is] a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell. James 3:5-6.

Years ago I saw a movie where a woman who had three children as they walked along the road, a reckless drunk driver ran through them and murdered the three children and sped off. The woman out of the agony of pains with almost nothing to live for and the sour memories of the tragic death of her children spoke ill words “may the one who caused her this pain never find help”. The reckless drunk thought it was fun but for over 20,30 years he labored in vain, his life was full of pains, struggle and emptiness. help was far from him and his family. He had forgotten where he wronged and it was no longer fun for him again. Are you carelessly hurting someone? Have you hurt someone intentionally and laughing it over? Are you putting someone through pains? Think again and rush back for forgiveness and mercy now! Hmmm.. When we forget ourselves, we do things that are remembered.

But the tongue can no man tame; [it is] an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. James 3:8.

Words are powerful; a pronouncement from an afflicted heart will be honored. The tongue is such a lethal instrument, it curses and blesses. The wish of the afflicted will be granted without hesitation especially when the hurt was an intentional wicked act or hurt for fun. It is wickedness to delight in hurting people for fun. Some friends will stab the other so badly that the other party in the midst of the cry of pain will make painful pronouncements. They may be few words but can damage the entire life of the callous offender. A very bitter person may barely say, as you have made life tough for me, may life be tough for you or may you not find a helper!may you not attract battles of pains to yourself in Jesus name!

Some people just derive fun from hurting people. They just laugh carelessly over the pains of others but a careful sorrow of grief awaits them also. What a culture of cruelty! God said owe no man anything except love. Anything outside love for and to a fellow man is share wickedness. only a wicked soul laughs at others calamity or rejoices at the fall of others! Woe unto him by who offense come. There are people you think can’t do anything to you because you may be more than them in everything(probably richer and more influential than they are for now) but may they not use their tongue against you. i admonish you Never undervalue anyone or say you can’t do anything especially when you are oppressing such a person!  it maybe your spouse or friend, colleague , family member or even brethren. The same way a heartfelt prayer gets answers so also painful negative pronouncement launches sorrow into the life and generation of the wicked.

Listen well, you may take your wicked act for fun but you will be under the tribute and curse of your action. Actions are investment. These days, some young men just go about getting ladies pregnant for fun and abandon or deny them, they raise the child in struggles and some may never be fortunate to settle for another family again, hence they live in pains and hurt. Some of these people out of pains may sometimes just make terrible pronouncement and that pronouncement will form a canopy over the offender. There is nothing that the offender will do in his life that will see the light of the day, it will be struggle upon struggle. Life will be acidic and corrosive to such.  Dignity starts with the man! Stop enjoying irresponsibility!

The message is that when we refuse to take responsibility, when we are callous and careless, we attract battles of struggles in life!

Don’t hurt for fun, it is disastrous. stay truly amiable!

The chicken-hearted man has no place in business. Business takes a heart resolved to confront the trimesters of the success incubation. Just like the conceptional challenges of pregnancy delivery, entrepreneurship demands that you plant a heart of purpose in your craft in a manner that conquer every temptation of moral compromise that has bedeviled the corporate and business world of today!
Mark Cuban said “work like there is someone working 24 hours to take it all away from you”. The truth is that the road to exceptional success is always under construction. Determination is simply a recipe of continuous learning and innovative potency that keeps what is on-ground in a multiplied variety without infraction of supreme value. The marketplace is always a question mark seek the sickle of exceptional insight and value of solution.
Laban crafted a business model difficult to beat by ordinary sense but Jacob’s determination and mental acuity defeated the model to control and dominate the market.
Entrepreneurship is the act or art of creating a simple solution to a complex problem and making money out of it. It is like planting a tree and standing under the sun until the tree grows to produce a shade for you!
In the world of Business it is impossible to conquer without determination. To a very large extent, determination has a way of funding dominion because it reflects the intensity of desire, the curiosity of creativity and willingness to commit innovative action. competition are never asleep during your market entry, espionage and bench-marking plus ruthless brainstorming are unending in the market and business world. without a Business heart, you will fall be the way side.
Henry ford’s determination changed the face of transportation in the 20th Century. Apparently that determination sponsored also the birth of Toyota! The Ford brand is heavy and duty bound but the Toyota brand is simple and economic. This infers that when our determination is heavy, every obstacle will become simple and economic. The product features of economy and simplicity is a market advantage and value innovation.
How determined are you to take your dominion? How much of your desire is a thought for the future?
Dont Chicken out of that business, invest time and learning for a new heart so that you can confront what you earlier desire to flee from. Crack the codes with the Truth and work. John 8:36, James 2:17-18, 4:2!
Share and increase business survival.

An asset is what you own by divine default and/or acquire that improves your value! Choice should be an asset of destiny! Focus on destiny is the right lens of choice! Destiny is heaven’s script concerning you! Destiny is enshrined within a decided tenure (lifetime) and time is that tenure that dies deliberately without man’s approval. Destiny is a delicate asset!
Destiny is the heavenly decided life for man. However, in many cases the autonomy of choice has devastated many destinies. Choice is programmed with consequence and the only way to guard choice is to be convinced that you are right about it. Your choice will either make the world miss or lose your genius. Before making a choice, its crucial to value the future worth of character to destiny! Choice means your approval for God’s will or permission for Satan to accomplish his plan.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean NOT on your own understanding! In ALL your ways acknowledge Him and He Shall direct thy path! Proverbs 3:5-6!
Destiny is a spiritual asset, human permutations, judgements and assertions cant get it right! Sense knowledge is a poor score in destiny matters, you need Divine knowledge! Our education only speeds up our reasoning ability if we are not bias. Doubt is a bias. Revelation which is divine knowledge existed long before human knowledge emerged. I have discovered that you can get all the education, certifications and professional profiles and be in lofty places but if you don’t understand life, you will fail cheaply! I means, its like seeking capital without management capacity.
Adam operated on divine knowledge until sin when his poor human knowledge emerged with leaves for a cover! sin is simply honoring your opinion above scriptural/spiritual instructions! The truth is that no scriptural principle work in isolation, they all work in collaboration. Selective obedience only wins the accolade of failure and mediocrity. 
Marriage is one core part of destiny that make you an asset to the world. A misfit wife/husband can plunder many years of life and corrupt destiny, the achievements that ought to mature in 2 years may take 20 years or more because you will deploy 18 years into trying to or getting your focus on your goals because the stench of your choice is distracting you. There are many couples that are no longer coupled, not many couples in uniforms are still coupled. Many wedding pictures are still very fresh but the marriage ended long time ago.
  • A lady may not meet your beauty standard but her Character could beautify your destiny. Another may meet your beauty standard but poison your destiny!
  • A young man could appear likeable but very unreliable! A young man may appear business and financially sustainable but would he treat you like his business or honor you as a woman? A handsome young man without heavenly character is a giant prison and life cage!

Marriage is a choice of what you want to live with! you may get married in church but all you know about marriage is outside Christ or traditional or the tradition of men.

Marriage is a careful deliberation that require the express approval of the codes of the Almighty God. when it comes to marriage the bible must be studied meticulously. Today, it is a pity that we contract marriage with basic knowledge of culture rather the truth of the Biblical perspective. what a faulty formula!
No one can alter biblical order and fulfill destiny! The asset of your destiny is in the biblical order! The truth is incontrovertible, you may criticize it, deride it or mock it but in the end there it is the same. Those who appreciate the truth live it! live the truth!
Your life is your stuff, work on it and Make it worth emulating!
