1. There were two special TREES in Eden, known by their FRUITS and God is the ULTIMATE FARMER, waiting patiently for the HARVEST of the earth, as it is written: “… Behold, the HUSBANDMAN WAITETH FOR THE PRECIOUS FRUIT OF THE EARTH, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain” [James 5:7] Every farmer sows choice SEED in expectation of bountiful harvest, God did much better, He SOWED Himself, and “… The SEED IS THE WORD OF GOD” [Luke 8:11] When God spoke in Genesis 1:3-31, the WORD was buried in the earth and on the seventh day, God rested from His work in expectation of FRUIT. The SEED sown at the FOUNDATION of the world, in GENESIS 1:1-31, is clarified in REVELATION as “… the LAMB SLAIN FROM THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD” [Revelation 13:8] The “LAMB SLAIN FROM THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD” is Jesus Christ, who “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the WORD WAS GOD. … ALL THINGS WERE MADE BY HIM; and without him was not any thing made that was made” [John 1:1-3] The SEED of creation was the WORD; SOWN in expectation of bountiful HARVEST in the likeness of God, until TARES sprung up.

2. Something was wrong with one of the TREES in Eden, as it is written: “… kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed GOOD SEED in his field: But while MEN SLEPT, his ENEMY CAME AND SOWED TARES among the wheat, and went his way” [Matthew 13:25] The ONE who sowed the GOOD SEED is God, the ENEMY is Satan. Satan was created by the WORD and was the “… ANOINTED CHERUB that covereth; … upon the holy mountain of God; … Thou wast PERFECT IN THY WAYS from the day that thou wast created, till INIQUITY WAS FOUND IN THEE” [Ezekiel 28:14-15] The TREE of the knowledge of good and evil was the secret of darkness grafted on the original SEED. Though the two TREES looked alike in many ways and received nourishment from the same soil, one brought forth DEATH and the other, EVERLASTING LIFE. When Jesus Christ said, “… BY THEIR FRUITS ye shall know them”, He compared the religious hierarchy of His days to the TREE of the knowledge of good and evil [Matthew 7:20] That is, though the Scribes and Pharisees proclaimed themselves as SEED of God’s righteousness, they had neither FRUIT nor PROOF of part in the Kingdom of God, as the Bible says: “But woe unto you, SCRIBES and PHARISEES, HYPOCRITES! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, NEITHER SUFFER YE THEM THAT ARE ENTERING TO GO IN” [Matthew 23:13]

3. The present Church has a special place in PROPHECY, as it is written: “For there shall arise FALSE CHRISTS, and FALSE PROPHETS, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, IF IT WERE POSSIBLE, THEY SHALL DECEIVE THE VERY ELECT” [Matthew 24:24] If you know what this means, you will shudder at the dimension of HYPOCRISY and DECEPTION in the Church hierarchy. I am talking of men who were once BORN AGAIN, received the HOLY GHOST and endowed with GIFTS, now fallen away into condemnation, as the Bible says: “But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The DOG IS TURNED TO HIS OWN VOMIT AGAIN; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire” [2 Peter 2:22] If a MINISTER you venerate or your Church leader falls from GRACE and MINGLED with FALSEHOOD, pray for him, but do not go down with him or cross the POINT OF NO RETURN, as it is written: “For it is impossible for those who were ONCE ENLIGHTENED, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made PARTAKERS OF THE HOLY GHOST, And have TASTED THE GOOD WORD of God, and the POWERS OF THE WORLD TO COME, If they shall FALL AWAY, to renew them again unto repentance … “ [Hebrews 6:4-6] I charge you, therefore, to “… WORK OUT YOUR OWN SALVATION with fear and trembling” [Philippians 2:12]

4. God allowed his “… SUN TO RISE ON THE EVIL and ON THE GOOD, and sendeth RAIN ON THE JUST AND ON THE UNJUST” [Matthew 5:45] That is, TARES were partakers of God’s GOODNESS, “For the GIFTS and CALLING of God are without REPENTANCE” [Romans 11:29] Friend, TARES look and sound so much like WHEAT. WATCH, therefore, and be VIGILANT not to be deceived by the working of MIRACLES and DIVERSE GIFTS as to lose focus of the WORD of TRUTH. Thus, said the Lord: “Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, GATHER YE TOGETHER FIRST THE TARES, and BIND THEM IN BUNDLES TO BURN THEM: but GATHER THE WHEAT INTO MY BARN” [Matthew 13;30] Brethren, we are in the season of GATHERING. TARES are coming together in ECUMENICAL BANDS and shall be “BURNT” with affliction during the GREAT TRIBULATION. When the last BUNDLE is tied up, “… the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord” [1 Thessalonians 4:16-17]

5. Finally, the two TREES are ready for HARVEST, the “… FIELD IS THE WORLD; the GOOD SEED ARE THE CHILDREN OF THE KINGDOM; but the TARES ARE THE CHILDREN OF THE WICKED ONE” [Matthew 13:38] Come to Jesus Christ today and be “… BORN AGAIN, NOT OF CORRUPTIBLE SEED, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever” [1 Peter 1:23] Amen


1. FAITH is a NOUN, that is, a proper name. if you steal, your proper name is THIEF; that is who you are. A THIEF may be rich, pious and well respected in society; he is Mr. THIEF as far as God is concerned. The vilest sinner, poor and wretched, if he comes to God by FAITH is JUSTIFIED, “And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are JUSTIFIED IN THE NAME OF THE LORD JESUS, and by the Spirit of our God” [1 Corinthians 6:11] If a THIEF or LIAR does all the WORKS of the LAW; pays his tithes, offerings and sleeps in church, he is not JUSTIFIED because “… his SOUL which is lifted up is not upright in him: but THE JUST SHALL LIVE BY HIS FAITH” [Habakkuk 2:4] FAITH, therefore, is not an ADJECTIVE describing what we or others say we are, but the choice we make to be JUSTIFIED and allow Jesus Christ to LIVE in us, as it is written: “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but CHRIST LIVETH in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I LIVE BY THE FAITH OF THE SON OF GOD, who loved me, and gave himself for me” [Galatians 2:20] If Christ dwells in you, you are a CHRISTIAN and your name is FAITH.

2. FAITH is SUBMISSION to the WORD of God, as the Bible says: “So then FAITH COMETH BY HEARING, and hearing by THE WORD OF GOD” [Romans 10:17] If you listen to a LIAR, you will end up in FALSEHOOD. If you give room to doctrines of devils, when a lizard runs across the room, you will see demons. Listen closely, FAITH comes from hearing the WORD of God, not boastful analysis of Greek, Hebrew and English languages. The WORD of God is God, not a doctrine and “… GOD WAS MANIFEST IN THE FLESH… “ [1 Timothy 3:16 ]God was MANIFEST in Jesus Christ and “… IN HIM DWELLETH ALL THE FULNESS OF THE GODHEAD bodily’ [Colossians 2:9] When Jesus Christ died on the Cross, He paid the WAGES of our SINS and became the author of EVERLASTING LIFE to those who come to God by FAITH in His name. FAITH is not being there when Jesus Christ died on the Cross, but BELIEVING in His DEATH and RESURRECTION for the SALVATION of your soul, as the Bible says: “… BLESSED ARE THEY THAT HAVE NOT SEEN, AND YET HAVE BELIEVED” [John 20:29] The WORD of God is calling you to SALVATION today; RECEIVE Jesus Christ and enter into limitless BLESSINGS of FAITH.

3. FAITH is God dwelling in man; “For it is God which worketh in you both TO WILL AND TO DO OF HIS GOOD PLEASURE” [Philippians 2:13] FAITH is a life totally submitted to the WILL of God, not a tool for selfish aggrandizement. FAITH is the MIND of Christ, in you, to walk in absolute OBEDIENCE to DIVINE PURPOSE, as it is written: “LET THIS MIND BE IN YOU, which was also in Christ Jesus: …. And being found in fashion as a man, he HUMBLED HIMSELF, and became OBEDIENT UNTO DEATH, even the death of the cross” [Philippians 2:5-8] FAITH, therefore, is not profession of allegiance to a religion, but a LIFE of SACRIFICE, as Paul confessed: “…. I count all things but loss for the excellency of the KNOWLEDGE OF CHRIST JESUS my Lord: for whom I have SUFFERED THE LOSS OF ALL THINGS, and do count them but dung, THAT I MAY WIN CHRIST” [Philippians 3:8] FAITH is God in you, measured by what you and I give up to have God dwell in us. Be not deceived by any means, those who preach FAITH as investment for material gain are LIARS “… FAITH is the substance of THINGS HOPED FOR, the EVIDENCE OF THINGS NOT SEEN” [Hebrews 11:1]

4. FAITH is the RIGHTEOUSNESS of God revealed, “… to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, THE JUST SHALL LIVE BY FAITH” [Romans 1:16-17] RIGHTEOUSNESS of God demands every claim of FAITH be subjected to “FIERY TRIAL”, as it is written: “Beloved, think it not strange concerning the FIERY TRIAL WHICH IS TO TRY YOU, as though some strange thing happened unto you: But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy” [1 Peter 4:12-13] The prophecy is fulfilled; FIERY TRIAL rages through the Church, consuming all shades of false ADJECTIVES and exposing all LIARS, SORCERERS, WHOREMONGERS, etc., whose end is “… everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels” [Matthew 25:41] Friend, FAITH is RIGHTEOUSNESS and adversity is never an excuse for sin. Whatever you are passing through, I encourage you to remain steadfast in RIGHTEOUSNESS, and remember; “… the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity” [2 Timothy 2:19]

5. Finally, FAITH is assurance of our TRANSLATION; when “… the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord” [1 Thessalonians 4:16-17] Beloved, FAITH is quitting the RAT RACE to PREPARE for the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. If you are not BORN AGAIN, I enjoin you to receive the WORD of TRUTH by FAITH and accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, amen



Are you surrounded by FRIENDS, FAMILY and BRETHREN who do not BELIEVE YOU? Well, you are in good company, the brethren of Jesus Christ did not BELIEVE Him. They said to Him: “… If thou do these things, shew thyself to the world. For NEITHER DID HIS BRETHREN BELIEVE HIM” [John 7:4-5]


1. Are you surrounded by FRIENDS, FAMILY and BRETHREN who do not BELIEVE in CHRIST? Well, you are in good company, the brethren of Jesus did not BELIEVE He is CHRIST and said, “… If thou do these things, shew thyself to the world. For NEITHER DID HIS BRETHREN BELIEVE HIM” [John 7:4-5] Jesus was not perturbed. He knew it was the nature of men to DISBELIEVE when you are not what they want you to be and in their TIME. He replied: “… MY TIME IS NOT YET COME: but your time is alway ready” [John 7:6] His brethren probably had good intentions, but GOOD INTENTIONS, “… highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God” [Luke 16:15] Those who mock you are not the ENEMY, but ignorant of God’s plan for your life. The ENEMY is Satan, taking advantage of weaknesses of the flesh to provoke fear and anxiety in scoffers. Beloved, God has a PURPOSE for your life, for which He gave His LIFE through Jesus Christ. It is your duty to ascertain God’s PURPOSE, BELIEVE it against all odds and PRESS FORWARD to fulfilment. WHEN NO ONE BELIEVES YOU, you are not alone, Apostle Paul said: “… I also suffer these things: nevertheless I AM NOT ASHAMED: for I KNOW WHOM I HAVE BELIEVED, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day” [2 Timothy 1:12] WHEN NO ONE BELIEVES YOU, BELIEVE and HOLD ON to the ONE who gave His LIFE for you.

2. What do you do, when DOUBTERS question the HEAVENLY VISION? John, the Baptist, announced the ministry of Jesus Christ, saying: “… BEHOLD, THE LAMB OF GOD, which taketh away the sin of the world” [John 1:29] The same John afterwards sent his disciples to Jesus, saying: ”… John Baptist hath sent us unto thee, saying, ART THOU HE THAT SHOULD COME? or look we for another?” [Luke 7:20] According to the PURPOSE of God, there were no visible miracles in the ministry of John. When miracles began to flow in Christ’s ministry, Satan raised DOUBTS in John’s heart. John was not jealous or evil, but ignorant of DIVINE AGENDA. Jesus calmed John’s DOUBTS, saying: “… tell John what things ye have SEEN and HEARD; how that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to the poor the GOSPEL IS PREACHED” [Luke 7:22] Jesus transformed the “HEAVENLY VISION” to VISIBLE GOSPEL, that could be SEEN and HEARD. I assure you; DOUBTERS will arise when your PURPOSE is in motion. You must not allow any man or situation to DISTRACT you from “… THE HEAVENLY VISION” [Acts 26:19] WHEN NO ONE BELIEVES YOU, let your LIFE and MINISTRY witness the VISIBLE GOSPEL.

3. WHEN NO ONE BELIEVES YOU, perhaps you are wrong, and DOUBTERS are right. WHEN NO ONE BELIEVES YOU, examine yourself, “… WHETHER YE BE IN THE FAITH; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?” [2 Corinthians 13:5] The Bible says: “Now FAITH is the SUBSTANCE of things hoped for, the EVIDENCE of things not seen” [Hebrews 11:1] The SUBSTANCE of FAITH is the TESTIMONY of God MANIFEST in Jesus Christ, and “… without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: GOD WAS MANIFEST IN THE FLESH…” [1 Timothy 3:16] Those who TESTIFY of God “MANIFEST IN THE FLESH” bear WITNESS they are crucified with Jesus Christ, and as Paul said: “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but CHRIST LIVETH IN ME: and the life which I now live in the flesh I LIVE BY FAITH OF THE SON OF GOD … “ [Galatians 3:20] The EVIDENCE of FAITH is the LIFE you and I LIVE for or against the TESTIMONY we profess, as it is written: “… THE JUST SHALL LIVE BY HIS FAITH … “ [Habakkuk 2:4] To LIVE BY FAITH is to LIVE SACRIFICIALLY for Christ, DEAD TO THE FLESH [Romans 12:1-2] If you are CRUCIFIED with Jesus Christ, it does not matter what men think of you, as the Bible says: “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but CHRIST LIVETH IN ME: and the life which I now live in the flesh I LIVE BY FAITH OF THE SON OF GOD, who loved me, and gave himself for me” [Galatians 2:20]

4. The Bible says: “This know also, that IN THE LAST DAY PERILOUS TIMES SHALL COME For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, BLASPHEMERS, … FALSE ACCUSERS, incontinent, fierce, DESPISERS OF THOSE THAT ARE GOOD, TRAITORS, … Having a form of godliness but denying the power thereof …” [2 Timothy 3:1-5] BLASPHEMERS, FALSE ACCUSERS and DESPISERS now sit in Church, costumed in “A FORM OF GODLINESS”. Like Lot’s wife, they will challenge your integrity in times of adversity, as it is written: “Then said his wife unto him, Dost thou still retain thine integrity? curse God, and die” [Job 2:9] His friends also DISBELIEVED him, but Job HELD ON and replied: “If a man die, shall he live again? all the days of my appointed time will I WAIT, TILL MY CHANGE COME” [Job 14:14] Beloved, my CHANGE and your CHANGE are so close, when the Lord shall appear in the company of innumerable angels and we shall be TRANSLATED to be “… LIKE HIM, FOR WE SHALL SEE HIM AS HE IS” [1 John 3:2] WHEN NO ONE BELIEVES YOU, BELIEVE in the Lord and His Coming. Every day, examine yourself in the MIRROR of FAITH to ascertain your standing in Him, earnestly preparing for His appearance when we “… shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord” [1 Thessalonians 4:17] If you are not BORN AGAIN, now is time to BELIEVE and receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, amen.




1. PATIENCE is the proverbial KEY of David which opens the vaults of God’s goodness. The Bible says: “For YE HAVE NEED OF PATIENCE, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might RECEIVE THE PROMISE” [Hebrews 10:36] PATIENCE is an active VERB, in spiritual terms, opposed to complacency or slothfulness. It is steady FAITH and labour in spiritual exercises to SEEK FIRST the Kingdom of God and receive the PROMISE, as it is written “SEEK YE FIRST THE KINGDOM OF GOD, and his righteousness; and ALL THESE THINGS shall be added…” [Matthew 6:33] The “KINGDOM” and “ALL THESE THINGS” are poles apart and you cannot devolve equal priority on both. Choosing the KINGDOM FIRST is the WISDOM of God, contrary to the wisdom of this world. If you choose the KINGDOM FIRST, be prepared to be called names. Giving to “ALL THESE THINGS” agrees with the wisdom of this world, but is outright FOOLISHNESS, as the Bible says: “… WISDOM OF THIS WORLD IS FOOLISHNESS with God …” [1 Corinthians 3:19]

2. PATIENCE is the engine, FAITH is the car and without PATIENCE to drive the car, FAITH is inept. If you truly BELIEVE God, you will PRIORITIZE His WORD, fully persuaded He is able to “… DO EXCEEDINGLY ABOVE ALL THAT WE ASK OR THINK, according to the power that worketh in us” [Ephesians 3:20] You see, “GOD IS HIS WORD” [John 1:1] When you have prayed and fasted, add PATIENCE to your FAITH, “… Behold, the HUSBANDMAN WAITETH for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath LONG PATIENCE for it, until he receive the early and latter rain” [James 5;7] You are the HUSBANDMAN and your spiritual exercises are the seed sown. Some seeds, like corn, mature for harvest in three months and that is it. Cocoa takes 2 to 3 years and brings forth annually for close to 50 years. Having put your seed in the ground, do not compare yourself with others or waver in FAITH and inadvertently uproot your seed before maturity. Retain your confidence in God at all times, “… For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For LET NOT THAT MAN THINK THAT HE SHALL RECEIVE ANYTHING OF THE LORD [James 1:6-7]

3. PATIENCE overrides TIME and redeems the YEARS. Abraham was 75 years old when God called Him. He had Isaac at 100 years and lived another 75 years, to die at 175 years [Genesis 25:7] David was a youngster when Samuel anointed him King over Israel, and WAITED PATIENTLY another 13 -15 years to receive the crown. David testified, “I WAITED PATIENTLY for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and HEARD MY CRY. He BROUGHT ME UP ALSO OUT OF AN HORRIBLE PIT, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings” [Psalm 40:1-2] When opportunity arose to kill Saul and help himself to the crown, David chose to WAIT PATIENTLY on the Lord, saying: “… and SOME BADE ME KILL THEE: but mine eye spared thee; and I said, I will not put forth mine hand against my lord; for he is the LORD’S anointed” [1 Samuel 24:10] Though we live in a push button world accustomed to instant gratification, you must not succumb to charlatans who have turned the gospel into an ATM machine for instant gratification. I exhort you to learn to PATIENTLY SEEK the KINGDOM FIRST and “ALL THESE THINGS” shall be added. God is faithful, He will surely lift you out of that horrible pit and establish you.

4. PATIENCE NEVER FAILS and will not fail as we navigate the last days of this dying world. Presently, everywhere you turn, there is distress and men’s hearts “… FAILING THEM FOR FEAR, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth…” [Luke 21:26] This is not the time to panic or run for help where there is none. As things go from bad to worse across the globe, I charge you to WAIT PATIENTLY on the Lord to RENEW YOUR STRENGTH, for THEY THAT WAIT UPON THE LORD SHALL RENEW THEIR STRENGTH; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint” [Isaiah 40:31]

5. Finally, if you are not born again, you have no STRENGTH to RENEW. I charge you, therefore, to receive Jesus Christ today as your Lord and SAVIOUR and and hold on tight to the end, amen


1. I write with utmost respect to all Senior Pastors, Bishops and Overseers, Grace and Peace in Jesus name, amen. Whereas your duties and responsibilities are well known, “… I will not be negligent to put you always in REMEMBRANCE OF THESE THINGS, though ye know them, and be established IN THE PRESENT TRUTH” [2 Peter 1:12] I call you to REMEMBER how you were once a sinner, received Jesus Christ and was initiated into PRESENT TRUTH by the Holy Ghost. Many years have passed, yet the SELF-REVEALING WORD remains TRUE and PRESENT in you, if you are in Him, working “… in you BOTH TO WILL AND TO DO OF HIS GOOD PLEASURE” [Philippians 2:13] The ONE who chose to make you a shepherd over His flock also instructed me to remind you, saying “But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto WHOMSOEVER MUCH IS GIVEN, OF HIM SHALL BE MUCH REQUIRED …” [Luke 12: 48] God has given you so much and expects more from you and I. He will give us more if need be, but that servant “… which knew his lord’s will, and PREPARED NOT HIMSELF, neither did according to his will, SHALL BE BEATEN WITH MANY STRIPES” [Luke 12: 47]

2. Whatever your ecclesiastical title, you are primarily a SERVANT of Jesus Christ, who chose you to be His shepherd and not the Elders or parochial council. I charge you, therefore, not to be unduly distracted by Church politics and administration, as to “… LEAVE THE WORD OF GOD and SERVE TABLES” [Acts 6:2] Take a cue from the Apostles and give yourself “… continually to PRAYER, and to the MINISTRY OF THE WORD” [Acts 6:4] Reduce time spent in meetings and delegate tasks to faithful hands to create more space to ABIDE in God’s presence. Thus, says the Lord: “ABIDE IN ME, and I in you. As the BRANCH CANNOT BEAR FRUIT OF ITSELF, EXCEPT IT ABIDE IN THE VINE; no more can ye, except ye abide in me” [John 15:4] Who you are and what you will be shall be determined in Christ’s presence, not by parish records. Therefore, be not deceived by the praises of men, “… for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God” [Luke 16:15] Subject your companions to the test of the wisdom of God, knowing fully well, “… COMPANIONS OF FOOLS SHALL BE DESTROYED” [Proverbs 13:20] Pray over every invitation to preach or join a religious association. As a GENERAL in God’s army, you cannot be a social or political activist in the “AFFAIRS OF THIS LIFE”, for “NO MAN THAT WARRETH ENTANGLETH HIMSELF WITH THE AFFAIRS OF THIS LIFE; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier” [2 Timothy 2:4]

3. I must not forget to remind you to take good care of the household of God. At all times, remember, you are a MAN OF God, not God OVER MEN and we are all BRETHREN, as it is written: “But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and ALL YE ARE BRETHREN” [Matthew 23:8] The MINISTERS in your fold are BRETHREN, not slaves or adversaries to be treated shabbily. Feed them, clothe them and pay them decent wages as fellow servants in the Lord, not as hirelings. Do not hold back from pouring all God has given you, materially and spiritually, in them to raise BELOVED BROTHERS and FAITHFUL MINISTERS. You and I know how God highly exalted and blessed Paul, and he held nothing back from Tychicus as it is written: “All my state shall Tychicus declare unto you, who is a BELOVED BROTHER, and a FAITHFUL MINISTER and FELLOWSERVANT in the Lord” [Colossians 4:7] Paul poured himself into Tychicus and gained a BELOVED BROTHER and HELPERs. You cannot do it alone, you need TYCHICUS in your ministry and your Tychicus will not fall down from heaven. I assure you, there are no seminaries on earth, where men like Tychicus are trained. Men like Tychicus are not born and cannot be bought, they are raised in love and sincerity. Do not ask to get FAITHFUL MINISTERS; the pastors under you are waiting to be raised and surnamed TYCHICUS.

4. Take heed to the care of Christ’s flock over “…which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to FEED THE CHURCH OF GOD, which he hath purchased with his own blood” [Acts 20:28] The flocks are by no means yours, you are an OVERSEER. The RIGHTFUL OWNER is Jesus Christ, who bought us with His blood and He, alone, will assess HOW and WHAT you FEED His sheep. Three times, Jesus Christ told Peter to FEED His flocks, saying: “… unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, LOVEST THOU ME? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, FEED MY SHEEP” [John 21:17] The test of HOW you FEED the flocks is LOVE. Do you FEED His sheep in LOVE or with an eye to material gain? Those who FEED the flock with “STEROID” gospel to FEAST on Christ’s sheep are HIRELINGS, “… and CARETH NOT FOR THE SHEEP” [John 10:13] If truly you LOVE the Lord and His sheep, you will FEED them on FRESH BREAD of green pastures and not on STALE BREAD of denominational creed. Good shepherds tarry in God’s presence to receive revelations of the WORD OF TRUTH to FEED the flocks with FRESH BREAD. If you drive the weak too hard or allow the strong to lag behind you will scatter the fold, and “Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! saith the LORD” [Jeremiah 23:1]

5. Finally, it is your duty to warn the flocks and PREPARE them and yourself for the coming of the Lord. The Senior Pastor, “… which knew his lord’s will, and PREPARED NOT HIMSELF, neither did according to his will, SHALL BE BEATEN WITH MANY STRIPES” [Luke 12: 47] He that has an ear let him hear what the Spirit is saying to the Church, amen.
