EPISTLE

INTRODUCTION

General Ogunkale adopted the Apostles’ way of life by the help of the Holy Spirit to keep the fire burning in the lives of Corps Members in NASME and his converts in Nigeria and abroad, by sending them an Epistle every week in other to encourage and empower their faith to remain strong. Follow the link below to see some of the Epistles he has sent so far.

[lvca_tabs style=”style8″ mobile_width=”600″][lvca_tab tab_title=”GOODWILL MESSAGE FROM THE CELEBRANT”]As a disciple of the Lord Jesus, one is expected to develop personal, long life, obedient relationship with Jesus Christ and this relationship is expected to make us a better person as it transforms our character into Christ likeness, changes our values into kingdom values. When this transformation has fully taken root, God then involves us in His mission to the homes, church and the entire world. Consequently, as joint heirs with Jesus Christ we are expected to live according to the directives of the Holy Spirit, the implication of this is that we enjoy tremendous privileges in that all God makes available to Jesus can equally be accessible by us. This explains why we need to have a close relationship with him because it is the extent of our relationship that determines our placement in life. Psalms 92:13 says ”they that be planted in the house of God shall flourish in the court of God”. With this awesome relationship, we are commanded to preach the gospel of Christ. Isaiah 61:1. The greatest of all fruitfulness is the ability to win souls to God’s kingdom as no achievement surpasses this. Whatever be your calling, if the ability to win soul is missing, then you are not yet fully obedient because this is the greatest of all instructions. This explains John the Baptist being referred to as the most fruitful man in the bible. In the world today, it is expected that discipline in family happens when parent lovingly corrects and train children in accordance with God’s word so they can grow in the way of the Lord. Proverb 22:6. However the cares of this world has made parents relinquish this responsibility to house helps, grandmothers etc. To worsen the situation, children grow up without being monitored, hence their foundation is laid on the destructive vices presented by the availability of the internet. Some people story may not be in this direction, it could be orphans, widows, poor and generally less privileged. These categories of people become very vulnerable. Over the years, I have grown to develop a passion for these categories of people and my ministry of giving has therefore been tailored in this field to the glory of God. We are made to understand in Luke 19:13-22 that God doesn’t reward effort made but result obtained he rewards productivity and not activity, rewards harvest obtained and not contacts made. He doesn’t reward group but individual. Revelation 22:12. I am therefore humbled to read the testimonies of some of my children being put together and I return all the glory to God for finding me a worthy vessel through which He has performed His tremendous work knowing fully well that God will never demand of us what we haven’t been empowered for. 1 John 5:3. TO HIM ALONE BE ALL THE GLORY.   B O OGUNKALE Major General

MY BELOVED CHILDREN, Good evening to you all, and how are you all doing in the Lord? I have no doubts in my mind that you all are a better you. I know that many of you would have said to yourself that “I can’t believe that this is me “praying, reading and at the same time very dedicated to my circular assignments. This is what the Lord does to a person who has handed his life over to him fully. He transforms your character; he changes your value and involves you in his mission In the home, in the church and in the world. And when you do all of these committedly you are glorified as there is no glorification without labour. If you allow God to engage you, no employer will reject you (psalm34:10 & psalms 35:27). Good news! Fathers Love Forum has purchased a new computer screen, laptop, and remotely controlled lazer stick, with these you will not have to depend on external source which may disappoint you like it happened during my last visit. Also arrangements has been made concluded for you all to attend SHILOH programs via the satellite viewing centre at the Living Faith church at Wurukum . I urge you to attend as SHILOH is a mountain of transfiguration and building of giants. The Fathers Love Forum has exposed you to numerous teachings. Their is no denying of the fact that central in all these teachings is the word “LOVE” . I am aware that the new corps members are already in camp and will soon be posted to their various places of primary assignments. This is the time your love in action will be tested . Recall that we have had several meetings preparing for these group of people. The kitchen has been upgraded and we also have a deep freezer in place. When we serve God in this capacity, we are rewarded ( Job 36:11) as serving God brings gains and not pains . You cannot be in partnership with God and be torn apart(Exodus 23:25-30,1Cor3:8,Rev22:12) Permit me to prepare your mind about what you stand to gain from this oncoming SHILOH event. *It is a mountain of divine encounter 1Sam 3:21 *You are empowered Joshua 18:1-3 *Delivery of your inheritance Joshua 18:3 *Divine visitation Gen21:2 *Rise of the giant in you Joshua 18:1 *Prophetic instructions launching you into supernatural breakthrough Its not about the church you attend now, we can retire back to our various churches after the SHILOH program, lets just give God a chance to give us a touch through this event. As a father, am instructing that you all attend, you could equally re-adjust your programs to attend the specialized classes like the: • Mothers and fathers of nations • Healing class Breaking generational curses class Breaking marital spell class etc so that we can be free from all impediments the devil has put across our ways. • The Lord will make your case different in 2017 Despite my busy schedules, I will create time to be for the program live at Canaan land because everyone needs to be refreshed. • God bless you, I love you all, my warm regards to the new corp members. Your Daddy

[/lvca_tab][lvca_tab tab_title=”FELLOWSHIP WITH BELIEVERS”]

MY BELOVETH CHILDREN How was your Tuesdays fellowship and how are you enjoying the books I gave you?  I believe you must have finished reading, digested and you meditate daily on all that you have read.  I expect that you will equally loan from others or better still, the library.  Make this habit a continuous one and you will disserves that things just get better and better. When I was with you, we had an interesting time discussing the need to make Christ the Center of our heart by spending time with him, the need to constantly live in the word and the need to always pray in faith.  Permit me through this medium to encourage you on the need to fellowship with Believers. The Bible says in the book of John 13:34 – 35 that “A new commandment I give you; Love one another as I have loved you, so you must love one another.  By this all men will know that you are my disciple, if you love one another.  In the Great Commandment Jesus said that we are to love God first and to love neighbour as ourselves. Jesus never intended you to operate in a vacuum; you cannot be a balanced Christian if you neglect loving relationships with other.  As we stay connected to people in fellowship and as we love one another, we gain strength from one another. Jesus said that one identifying mark of a disciple is your love for others.  Love shows the world that you are His disciple.  Loving others and being involved in harmonious fellowship with them shows that Christ is the center of your life. John 15:12 says that you are to love other persons because Christ commanded it.  Love flows from God through Christ to humankind. Having modelled love for you, Christ commanded you to exhibit it to others.  Shutting yourself off from the fellowship of others impairs your ability to show love to others and prevent their exhibiting lobe to you. Your forum represents the body of Christ in which you can fellowship with other believers.  Hebrews 10:24-25 says “let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.  Let us not give up meeting together as someone in the habits of doing, but let us encourage one another and all the more as you see the Day approaching”. Isolation and individualism is not Christ ways, Christ brings believers together as a family.  We should encourage our fellow Christian to express love for one another.  Worshiping together is one way we gain strength and motivation from other disciple.  As the verse from 1 Peter indicates that Christians are to be part of a body of believers using their gifts to serve others and receiving instructions from God’s word.  Anyone who professes to be a Christian but does not attend church is disregarding God’s word and is living outside His will. The abundant love God the father has for His Son, Jesus Christ, is the source of the love for others.  The depths of Jesus’ love, which led Him to the cross, should not surprise you, because it is modelled in the love the Father has for the Son.  “As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love”. (John 16:9). Many times God reveals Himself through the individuals.  He places in your path.  Life in Christ includes trying to live in fellowship with your brothers and sisters.  Often through that fellowship others speak a God anointed word to you that helps you see a problem more clearly or make the right decision.  Christian friends can help hold you accountable for times when you get off course.  They can remind you of what the Word says.  They can lovingly help you recognize your misplaced priorities.  The Father works through others in the church to accomplish His will in your life. If you want to be Jesus’ true disciple and to have a personal lifelong obedient relationship with Him, you will show love for others by fellowshipping with them and by being Christ’s instrument in their lives.  Christ’s love can flow through you to them.  You can help them be all Christ wants them to be. Fellowshipping with other Christians is also crucial to avoid withering in your Christian life. You can also encourage others as you become an instrument of Christ.  What happens to your fellow forum members is important to you.  First Corinthians 12:27 says, “You are the body of Christ and each one of you is a part of it”.  If one member of the body withers, experiences illness, loss or a diminished spiritual life, the entire body suffers, including you.  The body cares for each member of the body so that together all of the members become more complete in Christ’s love. Fellowship among Christians can span the globe, thanks to modern technological methods such as electronic mail. God may want you to help build up the body by sharing what He is doing in your life.  Have you shared with other believers’ ways you are growing in Christ as you learn what being His disciple means?  You can tell others about your time.  Sharing your experiences may lead another person to seek a closer relationship with the Lord. When disciples’ fellowship with other believers, they take care to develop Christ honoring relationships with others. Relationships do not just happen.  They require careful cultivation and nurture.  Because all of us have sinful natures, we can fall into pattern or thoughtlessness in the way we treat others.  Hatred, snobbery, jealousy and backbiting have no place in the life of a follower of Christ.  The Scripture instruct us about how Christ expects us to treat others with whom we fellowship.  “As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. My command is this; Love each other as I have loved you.  Greater love has no one than this that he lay down his life for his friends” (John 15:9, 12-13). You should love other persons because of the love that flows from God through Christ to you.  Jesus put so much value on friendship and fellowship that He said friends should be willing even to give their lives for one another if necessary.  Jesus made friendship a high priority Jesus laid down His life for others and later, some of His disciples did too.  Fellowshipping with other believers and loving those believers with the kind of sacrificial love that Jesus demonstrated are important parts of life in Christ and of a lifelong, obedient relationship with Him. Sometimes you may find that you have closed yourself off from persons who care about you.  Do you shut out persons than get involved in their lives?  Do you avoid persons rather than risk cultivating relationships.  Because you have been hurt in past friendships perhaps you withdraw rather than make yourself vulnerable again.  Even if you attend church, you may not allow friendships to form there.  You may think you can attend, listen to the sermon and then spend the rest of the week avoiding fellow believers who might want to get involved in your life. If you avoid fellowshipping with believers because you do not want to risk relationships, you miss opportunities to serve your family in Christ.  When difficulties come your way, relationships with other believers can provide resources to meet your needs.  The most serious result of neglecting fellowship with believers is that it inevitably creates distance between you and God. Please consider this as my birthday message to you all and forward to everyone to read again and again until it starts to find fulfilment in your lives. I love you all and God bless you. I am in Pakistan now, but my heart is with you as always Your Daddy

[/lvca_tab][lvca_tab tab_title=”28th NOVEMBER 2016″]MY BELOVETH CHILDREN Congratulations to you all on the blessing we all received due to the move of the Holy Spirit which we all witnessed during my visit to you over the weekend. Please note that every move of God moves his children forward. I therefore have no doubt in my mind that you have being moved forward in different areas of your spiritual life. I know without an iota of doubt that your mind has being transformed and you are set to start seeing the manifestation of your creativity as you allow the illumination from God on your mind and you also guide this mind jealously so that the creative seeds of God dropped there will not be corrupted by the devil. I also know that your reading habit is now set for a marathon and un-ending race. Remember, In the school of success there is no graduation. I am also aware that your prayer life has being improved tremendously alongside with the study of the word of God. To God be all the glory. For those that i gave test to write on the basis of the different books i gave out during one of my visits, am pleased to infirm you that you did very well. I am particularly impressed with the submissions of Umar Tajudeen and Busari Wemimo. I urge you to continue with this zeal to seek and serve God. The bible says; “If you seek me with the whole of your heart, you will find me ” Prov 8:17 The bible also says; Blessed are those who hunger and thirst after righteousness for they shall be filled (Matt 5:6). You will all agree with me that by this visit, a fire has being rekindled in the alter of your hearts as individuals and in the Fathers Love Forum as a group. It is now our responsibility to keep the fire burning (Lev 6:12-13 ). Having said all of this, you may all be wondering and thinking how can i cope with all this expectations and still be able to deliver in my primary assignment as a Corps member as well as my responsibilities towards myself and my family. This is where planning comes into play “Proverbs 24:3-4 says an enterprise is built by wise planning, becomes strong through common sense and profits wonderfully by keeping abreast of the facts. Planning stage is the stage of thinking through on how to realize your goal. Before labor you need sense. It is sense before sweat, otherwise the sweat will lack result so, you say to yourself “I know where am going but I need to map out a plan of action. I need to know how to get there.” This is where planning comes in. Planning helps you to locate the essentials that will enhanced the accomplishment of your purpose. “How do I get to where am going?” No one builds a tower without sitting down to count and locate what it will take to get the job done. Every successful person is a thinker, as thinking is the principal tool for planning. Every tower builder must first be a thinker and every star is a thinker. I’d like to describe planning as locating what counts in the accomplishment of your goal. After God gave Bishop David Oyedepo, the vision and mandate to start the work of the ministry, he spent 26months of planning and programming before He set out. He opened more than 40 files all in the process of setting the commission in perspective before actual take off. Every purpose is accomplished by wise planning, becomes strong through the use of common sense, and profits wonderfully by keeping abreast of the facts. The bible also says; “Wisdom has built her house, and hewn out her 7 pillars” Prov 9:11 Wisdom helps you locate the essentials of your assignment, what needs attention and how to put them together. Wise man said “Failing to plan is planning to fail” you won’t fail in Jesus name Amen This is the secret behind my ability to achieve all this things that you have being wondering how i am able to attain. I therefore encourage you all to let your light so shine on a continuos basis so that people around you will wonder how you are able to achieve the feats you attain. And that will present an opportunity to you to share with them about the God you serve. Start planning to receive the new set of Corps members in a powerful way and you will see the results flow out effortlessly. I wish you all God’s blessing, protection, preservation and guidance. I also thank you for receiving me. I look forward to receiving from you all the assignment I gave out during the cause of my visit. Remain steadfast.

Your Daddy

PRAY WITHOUT SEASON

A king is honored in the multitude of people, am honored and blessed having such mighty arrows as you in my quivers who made my birthday a memorable one. I sincerely want to thank you, i pray that you will all experience health and vitality to support you in all your youth endeavors in his vineyard and in life  in Jesus name.

I strongly believe and hope that the NASME community is feeling your impact as trial blazers that is creating a positive impact on the residents through your show of love, hardwork etc. The way and manner you celebrated my birthday by sharing exercise books to the primary school students in NASME community and using the opportunity to preach the word of God to them is a clear example of the impact am talking about. Please follow up on this children as efforts are not celebrated in Christianity but results.

The Prayer life of a believer is the strength of that believer. The devil trembles when he sees the weakest or the most timid Christian on his/her knees. The prayer life of a believer guarantees his failure or success. To the average Christian the command “pray without season” is simply a needless and impossible life of perfection. Who can do it? We can get to heaven without it? To the true believer on the contrary, it holds out to the promise of the happiest happiness of a life crowned by all the blessings the blessings that can be brought down on souls through his intercession. And as he persevere it becomes increasingly his highest aim upon the earth, his highest joy experience of the wonderful fellowship with the holy God “Andrew Murray”

Jesus in his earthly ministry recognized the importance of a prayer for his success sojourn on earth, he often times excluded himself to a SECRET PLACE Luke 5:16, 11:1. The secret place is a place of personal relationship and intimacy with God and every time spent in the secret place by Jesus Christ results in a major transformation in his life and ministry. It seems to be mysterious how prayer creates an intimacy with God thereby humbling and transforming us. It pleases God when we put our needs in prayer ( James 4:2! Isaiah 30:18-19) His prayer based on God’s revealed truth which were inline with solid biblical word view.

In our prayer life, peace should be maintained no matter how stormy the situation (Gal 6:7-9) persistency is also needed (Luk 18:1) in the. Place of prayer (Luke 18:1-8)

Scripture gives us an approach to a prayer that can be answered by God, all our supplications must be presented to God in thanksgiving trusting him to be more than able to solve all impossible cases (Jer 32:17, Matt 26:36-44) this is again captured in a hymn that says,

“O what peace we often forfeit, O what a needless pain we bear, all because we do nit carry everything ti God in prayer” As today, I want to make a conscious effort to trust God for everything and all things, in the smallest and biggest issues of life. Reignite your passion for prayer and see yourself riding on the wings of dominion, success and all wound rest.

Prayer life becoming stronger and reignited and also see results and proves from your heartfelt effectual fervent prayers. Remember to pray for the forum always as individuals and collectively, also remember to pray for the less privilege nation, church and unsaved souls etc. (Matt 19:13-14) Because when  job prayed for his friends, God prospered him. I see God prospering you as you intercede for your friends even enemies.

Get fired up in prayers and get proves before emerging as giants in your world. My trip to Pakistan and Dubai was very interesting another soul, Annieh Ugsang has being added to the kingdom. Also some wonderful has being bought for you all. Looking forward to seeing you again soon. God bless yMY BELOVED CHILDREN,

I am still dais about the move of the holy spirit during my visit to you over the weekend. No doubt, a fresh fire has being rekindled in our work with God, commitment to the things of God and obedience to his instruction as his worthy disciples. It is therefore our responsibility to keep the fire burning in all ramifications. I expect to hear testimonies of your renewed love for God in the areas of prayer and studying of his word.

Are you aware thousands of youth today are in search of job and fulfillment but amazingly they fail to realize that once God engages a man, no other employer of labor on earth can reject such a fellow, they run from pillar to post not realizing that the most favorable job opportunity is in God. Just imagine a job opportunity bringing along with its packages health, provision pleasure, prosperity (job36:11),protection, upliftment all as your benefits for working for God. Certainly no organization can include this in their terms of employment. The most enjoyable part of Kingdom employment is that its not only for your benefit but for your posterity.

To serve means to please. You do not need to be a minister, pastor or a deacon to serve the interests of the kingdom. You can serve God in whatever capacity you can. job1:8, Ps 89:20,Dan 6:20.

Our reward mentality must be activated as servants of the living God because when you make the kingdom of God your ambition, it brings addition (Heb 6:9-10, john15:16) gains and not pains.

There are different kinds of services to God. It could be the use of your time, talent or treasures but the most important form of service is bringing of saved souls into the kingdom. Every believer is expected to evangelize, also this forum as a body is expected to do so.

Our service to God must be done Sacrificially, Willingly, Cheerfully, In Love, Not being ashamed, With reward mentality (no service to God is in vain James 4:8,  2Cor25:12, 2cor 15:58) Righteously, Diligently, Tirelessly and In faith .

Decide now the departments you will like to serve in this forum. Do you want to always uphold the forum in prayers, will you choose to assist in the transportation unit, welfare  or  with your financial contributions to any of the programs (remember your financial contribution is only a medium for God to uplift you) donation of books to the library, assisting the PRO particularly in invitation of people to the forum. Note; its a sacrificial work from the master with his rewards attached. Remember the harvest is plenteous both the laborer are few. God needs your quota of work in his vineyard. Make up your mind today.

God takes pleasure in the prosperity of his people but you must engage yourself on the platform of service to God and for God, its the convenant key to exploit (1chronicles 29:3, john4:33-36)

I am a living testimony to the rewards of the service to God and I want to charge you as my children, whether as an executive or a member of this forum  to create  an avenue to invest your time, talents and treasures, go extra miles in your service to God and patiently watch what wonder God will turn your life to  to the amazement of your world.

If you need God’s intervention, intervene in the things of God.

In summary, what i am saying is that, you look forward to being gainfully employed after your youth service, the best way of achieving this is serving God in various capacities. The book of Exodus23:25 says “and you will serve and the Lord will bless “…….. this blessings includes divine leading to your desired job, removing every obstacles towards attaining your objectives, giving you divine wisdom and ideas of what to say during job interviews, granting you favor etc. You can see that you have done one thing and God through his word is committed to do so much more to give you your expected end and make you a star in your world

The choice is yours  to make today and I look forward to seeing its refection  the next time we meet

Finally, permit me to recap my teachings which lay emphasis on your role as a disciple of Christ. You need to give Christ the top most priority, by daily spending time with him so that he can transform your character and also change your values and involve you in his mission here on earth. You also need help to take your prayer life to the next level by ensuring that you have a daily quite time were you enter His presence with thanksgiving and praise and he purges you of your sin and loads you with his benefits on a daily bases. Remember also the importance of living in the word as it also enhances your prayer life and your spiritual warfare. I am again looking forward to another time of fellowship with you. God bless you all. Your father

[/lvca_tab][lvca_tab tab_title=”15th NOVEMBER 2016″]MY BELOVETH CHILDREN, How are you all? I hope you all are doing great. How was the feeding ministry on Saturday as well as the Sunday and midweek service? As you continue to serve God earnestly by engaging in the activities of the forum, i see God taking you to your next level. Do you know that you were shaped to serve God? Each of us were uniquely designed or to do certain things. God planned exactly how he wanted you to serve him, and then he shaped you for those tasks. God would not give you gifts, abilities, talents, interests, personality and life experiences unless he intended you to use them for his glory. By identifying and understanding these factors, you can discover God’s  will for your life -how he wanted you to serve him and how he shaped you for the tasks he planned for you. God gives every believer spiritual gifts(Romans 12:6-8,1Cor 12:4-11,28-31,Eph 4:11-12;1Cor 7:7) to be used in the ministry. These are special God empowered abilities for serving him that are given ONLY TO BELIEVERS. You cannot earn your spiritual gifts or deserve them- that is why they are called gifts . They are an expression of God’s grace to you Eph 4:7 God loves variety and wants every believer to be unique, that is why he has not  given us the same gifts ( 1cor 12 28-29).Also no individual receives all gifts. If you had them all, you would have no need of anyone else, and that would defeat one of God’s purposes-to teach to love and depend on each other. Your spiritual gifts were not given for your benefits but for the benefits of others, just as other people were given gifts for your benefits (1cor12:7).God planned it this way so we would need each other. When we use our gifts together, we all benefit. If others do not use their gifts, you get cheated, and if you do not use your gifts, they are cheated. This is why we have to discover and develop our spiritual gifts. Have you taken time to discover your spiritual gifts? An unopened gift is worthless.   How do you discover your gifts ? 1.Learn about the gifts. Read extensively on spiritual gifts. Study the lists of the gifts in the New Testament. Talk with Christians who have  discovered and developed and are using their gifts.

  1. Volunteer for whatever needs to be done. While you are at it, ask yourself whether you have a gift for the assignment or not.
  2. Be sure you enjoy using the gift, you will feel good using it.4. Evaluate your effectiveness. If you volunteer for an area of gifting and you consistently find that what the gift is supposed to do doesn’t happen, you do not have that gift. If you have the gift of an evangelist ,people will come regularly through your ministry. If you have the gift of healing ,sick people will get well. If you have the gift of administration, the organization will run smoothly.
  3. Others would confirm your gift.  If you think you have a spiritual gift but no one else knows you or have sat under your ministry thinks that you do, you probably don’t.

Whenever we forget these basic truths about gifts, it brings trouble in the church. Two common problems are gift-envy  and gift projection. The first occurs when we compare our gifts with others feel dissatisfied with what God gave us, and become resentful or jealous of how God uses others. The second problem happens when we expect everyone else to have our gifts, do what we are called to do and feel as passionate about it as we do 1corinthians 12:5. Sometimes spiritual gifts are overemphasized to the neglect of the other factors God uses to shape you for service. Your gifts reveal one key to discovering God’s will for your ministry but your spiritual gifts are not the total picture. God has shaped you for other things too. This forum therefore presents you with a unique opportunity to discover and exercise your God given gifts to the benefit of one another and the body of Christ. Remember also that a man’s gift makes room for him and elevates him to a position whereby you sit with kings and not mere men. This connotes promotion, in other words, diligence with your gift leads to promotion to your next level. I will enjoin all of you to pick up a copy of this epistle and ponder on it diligently with a view to put into practice all its contents. I will also endeavour to address this same topic in my next epistle as I consider it key to your next level blessings, both as corpers and as you go into the world to pick up job placements. As you read this epistle, your daddy is in Poland physically but his heart is with you. God bless you all and remember that i love you all.   Your Daddy, Dele Ogunkale

[/lvca_tab][lvca_tab tab_title=”OCTOBER 24th, 2016″]BELOVED CHILDREN, I hope you are basking in the glory and majestic power of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ?

How are you coping with the epileptic power supply and the heat in NASME, don’t worry it’s a stage and you will pass through it unhurt with your bones intact. Do you know that Satan is always on the move to frustrate the plans of the children of God. He is called the the’ adversary’, and is never at rest. He uses every means to hunt down the visions of the children of God. He is never tired of causing discouragement and trying to turn Gods children against Him. He comes to your heart and whispers so many things to you. He tells you that being faithful to the Lord hurts; its not what you really want to do, it takes too much time away from other things, and its just isn’t worth it.

WE MUST NOT GIVE IN TO SATAN BUT ALWAYS BE READY TO RESIST HIM WHEN HE COMES AROUND?WE MUST BE BOLD TO ANNOUNCE TO HIM THAT WE CANNOT BE DISCOURAGED BECAUSE JESUS IS YOUR ALLY.

Say it loud and brave, ” I cannot be stopped, I am a moving train that cannot be stopped, greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world, I am more than a conqueror, the Lord is my strength and my salvation, of whom shall i be afraid; surely, they shall come but my God shall come as a flood and raise a standard against them; I am unstoppable, I am unbeatable, I am a champion that cannot be defeated. Jesus is my anchor and my courage; I am a child of God”.

Don’t give up on daily bible reading and prayer, public worship and personal worship. Remember that “Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all. He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken” Psalm 34 :19-20. So shall your story be in Jesus name. Don’t let anything distract you from Gods priorities, understand who you are in Christ. You can do all things through Christ that strengthens you Phillipians 4:13.

For everything that God allows ,there will be opportunities for you to exploit. I am sure that if you all had a choice, Makurdi and NASME in particular would have not come up in the choice of a place to do your youth service. Here you are, in NASME. The big question you should be asking yourself is, now that I am in Makurdi, God what do you have for me? I believe that when you meditatively ask God this question, you will get to know that the DG’s forum that you are right now is probably a platform for launching you into your purpose of being in Makurdi. So i encourage you to take it very serious.

For me, i can say that i am one of the most widely travelled army officer in this dispensation. And in all these trips, i discovered that there is always a soul out there at the verge of doing something very drastic in life and i just come into the scene at the nick of time and God uses me to reverse such decisions through the preaching of the word. Remember Peter in China, Sipho in South Africa and the latest is Emeka in Ukraine. Emeka Ofoegbu is a young man from Imo state, the last born out of a family of six. He travelled 8years ago to Ukraine to hustle. In the process, he got married to a Ukrainian lady and later divorced. He is married again to another but with a plan not to have an issue (a child) because his actual plan is to come back to Nigeria to marry. For him, he was using these ladies to pass time, and it is a dangerous game to play as those ladies out there too know that most Nigerians are out to use them to get what they want and later dump them.

It was in the midst of this looming danger that God sent me to Ukraine and today, Emeka is born again and the process of a new walk and direction in Christ has started. Have you discovered why God allowed you to be in Makurdi despite your efforts to change your posting? Settle down quick to discover it. The discovery and pursuit of that vision gives you joy and fulfillment. I expect to hear testimonies about your exploit in Makurdi

I am missing you. I will find time to come and be with you very soon. Your daddy is scheduled for Poland and Pakistan again but you know what? I don’t think it is as important as me seeing you. So expect me very soon. You are blessed.

MY BELOVED CHILDREN, I believe you have given yourselves to continuous prayers as I said in my last epistle. I also hope you are basking in the presence of the Holy Spirit. As you all know, I have been in South Africa for the past one week on a very serious official assignment. Despite the pressures of this assignment, I decided to do my father’s business (soul winning). During this period, the Holy Spirit led me to win a soul, a young man whose name is Alfred Sipho. This young man broke down in tears and shared a whole lot of testimonies of how the devil has been tormenting his life. Thegood news is that he is happy and God has taken control of everything. When he got home, he made me talk to his mother on phone who was full of thanks and praises. My dear children, I had two options in South Africa which are, to give myself to a social and a promiscuous life especially staying in a five star hotel alone or give myself to the assignment of witnessing to lost souls. I chose the latter and by now heaven is rejoicing over siphothat has been saved. Again my children, this is another secret of my success in life. I know some of you listening to me maybe faced with critical decisions to take, let God lead you in your decision making because any decision that honours God will surely attract a reward. Permit me to also say that there is a lot to be done in the vineyard of God, than to be given to strifes, rivalries and divisions. The book of 1 cor3:4-6 stated below made that so clear to us. “For while one saith, I am of Paul; and another, I am of Apollos; are ye not carnal? Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers by whom ye believed, even as the Lord gave to every man? I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase”. I will encourage you therefore to contribute your quota to the growth of the forum and wait for God to reward you. Do not give room to the devil, if you do he will give you thousands of reasons as to why you should not be a partaker of his divine assignment. This forum is primarily established to develop corps members by impacting the necessary skills and knowledge to better equip them spiritually, emotionally, socially, financially and intellectually so as to face future challenges in life. I urge you all to be committed to the forum. Finally, is the issue of prayer, as you did last week I am again instructing you to engage in a series of prayer sessions today with all of your energies. I also welcome the new executives to the forum, the task may look challenging but be assured that it is God that will see you through, as you will not do it in your own strength. For the other members not given any appointment, I will urge you to do like Priscilla and Acquilla in the Bible, who though where not given any appointment in Church, impacted lives positively through their secret contributions. Everyone has a task in God’s vineyard whether appointed or not. I look forward to seeing you very soon. God bless you all Your Daddy BO Ogunkale
