Preacher: Apostle Joshua Selman
Topic: 2021 Instructions!!! Learn To Keep Secrets To Yourself.
Learn to keep secret until the time is due and the atmosphere is right to speak.
You don’t have to say everything happening in your life at the moment.
You must first and foremost wait until there is a due season.
Not every information is for everybody.
And I say this especially for many of us who have very strong family types.
If they kick your leg even your uncle in the village must hear that they hit your leg.
And everybody comes in concert and say sorry.
You have headache before you know it, your extended, your tag cousin must have heard that you have small headache.
That type of life will land you in misery.
And Mary kept these things to herself.
He said set a watch over my mouth, this month has landed me in trouble.
The Bible said a word spoken in due season how good it is?
You have roommates, God is doing something in your house.
But you went about telling people how everything is bad about your house.
Now God is changing your house but the impression they are spreading around is that your house is a grave.
Jesus died but how many days how many days did he died?
3 days! some people were busy spreading rumours.
Did you know that Jesus was dead? Whereas he had resurrected.
There are certain people you were not supposed to share your past with.
Because you cry that day you told them everything and now have a little quarrel they will say I will disgrace you here.
Forget about any Koinonia, I will disgrace you here, Koinonia what?
Go and tell apostle I will disgrace you here.
Who is it that used to collect money from Adamu?
And you are standing there, you are changed.
But you have kept an association and gave them an access that is destroying your life.
Are you getting what I’m saying now? Very important!
In ancient time when they wanted they King to reveal his secret.
They will find a beautiful lady he will seduce the King.
And then he would drink wine and take wine and then to sleep with her.
And then she will ask him all kinds of question, that is what Delilah did to Samson.
Because Samson knew this rule, Manoer had been giving an instructions, but she came.
Has long has he kept that secret he dominated.
His ruler-ship as a judge in Israel was at the mercy of his keeping distance relationship.
The philistine saw him (general relationship), they wanted to know how do we access this guy?
Men of God be careful with women, let me warn you again.
MOG! be careful with women, every lady you are see you are giving a prophetic word.
He just says hi sweetheart I have a prophetic word that is personal to…
Continue God is watching and destiny is watching.
One day you would wake up like who? Like Samson.
And you find out that your glory has been… I’m not saying that lady are evil don’t get me wrong.
I’m just saying be wise! hallelujah.
Somebody came and say quietly, don’t you know that this phone is #250,000?
You say ehn? Let me see it, and then in the evening you don’t find the phone again.
You say am suspecting this person whether you are suspecting or not it’s God.
Did you know that my Father sent me 100,000 every month?
My father is a senator are you aware?
Somebody just entered the room now “in fact my father want to campaign this year”.
And you said that and that and he said oh really?
The person may be sincere but the Bible said the birds of the air I’ve picked it. (hmm prophetic atmosphere).
Am I blessing you? Do you know that Godwin is going to marry me?
The way he’s looking at me, he sends me a text.
Come and even see the text. And the other lady said let me see.
Ha-ha you mean is Godwin? She said okay.
Two days later Godwin doesn’t call again.
One weeks later Godwin doesn’t call again and he called and said “sorry this marriage cannot work again”.
Because somebody went and said… Let me tell you something about this lady.
It’s not like I hate her, let me just tell you the truth this lady you are seeing…
Haba, yourself you have paid the price for destiny, you deserve a consolidated this blah blah blah all kinds of stories.
And know the person waters down this lady.
The lady may not be sincerely, but there is a prophetic atmosphere compelling her to do what she’s doing.
Have you not seen that some of your friends join some association and all of a sudden you start seeing certain things in them?
Anger, pride, you understand? Somebody who used to great, will not look at you.
“Femi how are you I heard you are a pastor now? Give me five, and you are wondering.
I’ve seen all kinds of people, I’ve seen people who would have seen me before and said good afternoon sir.
Not because he does anything to me.
Today they just see me and they pretend as if they don’t see an apostle.
And you exposed yourself to atmosphere that will raid morality out of your life.
You exposed yourself to atmospheres, some of you were respecting your parents until somebody told you something.
He said continue behaving like a vegetable there let them push you to do everything.
Haba you self-one day give it to them.
And that day your father will talk and you said “Daddy is not like I can’t do anything, I’m telling you now don’t try me”.
From that day no allowance, they drove you out of the house prematurely.
And the friend who advocated that foolishness is sleeping under AC.
And he was leaving you to pay the price of lack of wisdom.
It’s amazing that when people get you into trouble.
They will tell you get into trouble, when you get there we will call everybody come and see the trouble he has entered.
Genuine people are scarce. Learn this, genuine people are scarce.
I’m not teaching you to just be suspicious and to be sneaker.
I’m just telling you at the back of your mind you must know the information about your life and destiny that is for public consumption.
Don’t tell anybody is nonsense, don’t tell anybody o.
When world leaves you, you can’t buy them back.
They are gone and sometimes they can produce more disasters than you planned for.
Number 3, gain mastery over your tongue. Psalm 39:1.
You must gain mastery over your tongue.
Many of us the devil in our life is our tongue, our word.
You say anything to anybody, information that should not go out, goes out.
There are many married people. okay you got married two, three, four months, you could not take in.
Every people your community has known that it is four months and you could not take in.
No! what sort of person are you? Everybody you just see them, see o I went to the hospital and they said my husband blah blah.
Did you know my husband this and that… please which pastor do you know to help my husband?
Because Kai! if I depend on this man I won’t have a child.
In the name of looking for help, many of us run helter shelter.
Small headache you go everywhere and then it is a painful thing to listen to a man who you think can solve your problem.
And then open up everything and at the end he said sorry I can’t help you. But he has had the information.
Do people qualify for access into your life or do you just open up the gate?
A man who has no control over his spirit is like a city.
Hallelujah! Is God speaking to us tonight?
You must know when to speak and there are some of us who are under all kinds of precious from our friends.
Tell us now! Everything tell us, hallelujah.
One time I was going to counsel a lady and she had something, a condition that was a bit challenging.
And I don’t know who she told, very surprising.
She was coming for counselling and the friend sent me a text.
Sir so so so person is going to come for a counseling she is most likely may not tell you she has this.
But I’m telling you just to help you he has this and that and that and it’s a serious condition.
Please prop her just make it like I didn’t tell you anything, am telling you the truth, just prop her.
And then when this lady come, the first thing she did was to tell me that thing.
And I said what if I were wicked man? I’m sure that she innocently trusted that person with some information.
Are you getting what I’m saying now? Please be wise.
In this wicked Nigeria, please be wise, be very wise!
When you find out that all of a sudden assassin come to a house and rob the place.
Did they just guess? Men who don’t keep quiet.
Some of our parents when they are calling from upstairs and boys quarters.
You will hear them. Hello Sam, how are you? The ten million? no! it has to be ten.
I can’t take anything, ten and it must be cash.
Two million is here… and somebody is hearing, and those Spirit are moving them.
And all of a sudden you would go somewhere and then in the mist of it you find out that something will fail.
Somebody will all of sudden, come and say sir… Daddy we have a little problem, honestly.
We need one million. And you say Kai, there is no much.
They will say daddy the Bible said this and that.
You now betrayed the whole family because you cannot keep quiet.
Two of my daughters are getting married, and I met this man of God, the man is powerful.
I’m even planning to meet him again because my wife has been complaining.
It is like she has an infection or something like that.
I think so I don’t really know what has been happening to her these days.
You are talking on phone shouting everything and your wife is there embarrassed.
And people are passing, ah ah mummy has what? What do we hear?
Set a guard. He said “I said I will take it to my ways, that I see not with my tongue.
I will keep my mouth with a bridle while the wicked is before me”.
Are you seeing that scripture? Whenever I see a wicked man before me I will keep my mouth shut because I realized…
May your enemy not get to your place of breakthrough before you.
There are certain things. Terrorist, one of the classic intelligent of terrorist…
Is that they reveal information base on your cardal and as the assignment comes.
So if you ask terrorist what is the next thing? They don’t know.
Because the man already knows that he’s working with wicked people so anything can happen.
Hallelujah, there are all of kinds of people that have gotten into trouble because of their mouth.
He said I will keep my mouth. with a what? A bridle.
What you use to tie a horse’s mouth. Especially when I stand before the Presence of wicked people.
You went to your village, the next thing you are shouting everything.
My Jeep is coming back from this and that. And somebody said really?
What color? Blue! What type? Highlander!
And you just heard custom, they will call you and say they’ve held it in Lagos.
Welcome to the consequences of not keeping your mouth shut.
That’s why talkative are not my friends at all. I have a serious problem with people who just run their mouths anyhow.
There are people who come for counselling.
I was sharing with a lady, immediately they come in.
The say Apostle Kai this room is nice, you have wine.
See plenty wine, ah Apostle you are enjoying oo. Am afraid of her, you will never be my friend.
I don’t trust you. In any way or whatsoever. Very unapologetic about what I just said.
I don’t trust you. Peter was like that. He said O Jesus you will not wash my feet.
He said calm down bath me. In how many minutes? You revealed Jesus from washing…
Those kinds of emotional… When people are not emotionally stable, they should have no access to your secret place.
You can’t call those people destiny associations.
Destiny association are the people that you come and talk to and they build you.
And you come and tell the person and say look I found out that have started having lust for women.
And the person said it’s okay have been sensing this atmosphere of lust.
Let’s pray, don’t worry remember that word God gave you.
I believe in you. Your pain becomes their pain. They cry your cry even when it does not concern them.
They go all out of their way, the love you genuinely.
When all men leave you they will be there.
They don’t look like it, some of them didn’t go to school.
But when all the nice people leaves you, you will see them there, they are the friends that stick closer.
As am speaking now God is ministering to send me to some of us.
You are at the point of your life where all the people who loved you are the one who have stab you down.
And you are sitting down wounded and the person you thought nothing good will come out of him is the only person you are meeting now.
And he said well if you can believe me I can help you.
When you find the gift of genuine men don’t be embarrassed to keep that relationship.
It will make you a fool to keep it, do it.
My neighbor has one friend, have seen all kinds of people come to her.
There are friends that usually comes when she brings clothes from Lagos, as soon as she landed you will see them.
And they know how they do this talk and am in my room.
I will just say (hissed) this is exactly the kind of attitude that people have.
There are people you see in church when they buy new equipment. You see them for one month.
Instrumentalists, as soon as they buy new equipment, they will want to come and see what’s the happening thing.
“I can play guitar; I can play this” After one month (hissed) they like new things.
When a man of God gets married, the solidarity around… They like new things. Once it goes old a little they are searching for something else.
That’s how they marry a lady after three years they look for another new one.
Because there is a force that compel them to do it like that.
There was a time my neighbour went through a very tragic event in her life.
The miracle that she said about fibroid the fibroid situation was so serious so I can’t begin to describe details for you.
But then she bought a Jerry can of water she shared it that’s why I’m comfortable to share it with you.
And I prayed on the it, and the told her keep taking it and the fibroid started cutting supernaturally.
I saw people who used to come around, they ran away from her.
Men, brothers, they ran away. Church people who used to come, they will come and cook food.
The sister can cook for you but the day she just tells you ehn “sorry I wanted to tell you something, they said I have a problem with one side of my womb”.
You say ah! Really? Since when? Whereas the brother said “look let me tell you, not to love you is like not breathing”
You are the… All of those lies that people. and then they finish telling you that.
And the guy looks at you and said look I love all of you.
The lady said all of me? He said yes honestly. And she said are you aware that am SS?
You will say really you don’t look like it. Ah why didn’t you tell me? And you call again and he said am busy.
Genuine people are scarce. It’s easy to be a fan when you have something.
I mean it’s easy to attract fans when you have something to offer.
But how many people can still embrace you when they see your scarce?
These are the genuine people that deserves to be your destiny association.
