REVEALED: THIS IS THE NO.1 WHY REASON WHY YOU ARE STILL POOR!
You know, when I talk to many brothers, the first thing they tell me is: “times are hard. Apostle there’s not money. I want to do business, there’s no money”. It’s a lie.
[Look at me] God has been faithful to many brothers. If you are a tither at one point or the other in your life, God has been faithful, but many people in the body of Christ are wasters.
Wasters of resources. Wasters of opportunities. Living a lie; living a false life. Your salary is 50,000 but you are staying in a house of 500,000. You are a waster!!![are we together?]
Your salary is 500,000, you are driving a car of 5.5 (million). You are a waster!!!
I told people, don’t buy a car until you have money 10% of the value of that car consistently for maintenance.
Your maintenance cost is approximately 10-20% of the overall value of the car you buy on a consistent basis.
Many people go and collect loan from the bank, instead of them to buy a simple car, they buy different kinds of cars, move around to prove a point.
You are earning 20,000, you are busying material of 50,000 and you wear it and everybody around you does not know.
Let me show you how Satan cheats Africans; there are many of us if you did not have the spirit of a waster, God has been faithful in your life.
You would have raise up to million naira right now to do responsible things.
How about marriage? How we waste money in Africa. You get the best venue, hire the best people, you go and get a small boy and pay for that boy, 30,000 naira to the ring.
Can’t you put it in your pocket? Of course… [why are you laughing?] Will it stop it from entering her hand?
The spirit of a waster is destroying Nigerians!!!
You are a student; you are wearing suit of 50,000 and you pride yourself all around. “I have this…”. No sir…He’s a waster!
…and we pastors have been victims of this because in an attempt to help people become successful, we put pressure on them to prove that the word is working; and in an attempt to show that the word is working, the money that God gave the guy to help him he now uses it to buy a car as a hundred (100) level student to show that he has faith.
Faith is not foolishness.!
You are in 200-level, you are wearing a weave–on of 20,000. No!!!
There are many students who are eating where certain lecturers are eating. Where a piece of meat – a big piece of meat is 500 naira. See that? And you eat 3 square meals in a day.
They give you 10,000 naira in a week you spend. Some of us have the spirit of spending; You can’t rest till it finishes. It’s a spirit!
Waster!!! [are we together?] you are wearing a shoe of this amount. [I am talking to you] you have to square up.
There are things in your life you can go and sell. That’s your capital. Sell all those nonsense.
You have 3 phones, who are you calling? You are loading your phone with 10,000 naira in a month; that’s somebody’s salary! …and all you are doing is gisting.
Rooms that we give the devil to destroy our lives. [praise the lord] You are not doing anything; your barber comes to meet you. 1000 naira per barbing.
Can’t you go and queue? What are you rushing for? [are you getting what I am saying now?]
There are people who don’t have any money. you are not earning anything; you charter a car to wherever you want to go to. [let me show you how we waste money]. 25,000 naira on a trip!!!
Ooh, I can’t enter night bus, we have to fly”. 30,000 naira. Economy is finished, “book business class”. 45,000 naira!!! You are paying, you are flying away your destiny. I am not saying the days will not come for those things but not now.
Check life you see people living especially we men of God. So that I will show that I am anointed”, you go and buy a watch of 100,000. You are wearing it. Let me tell you: when you rise, everything around you rises.
So, when you fake it, nothing around you can resonate with the level you claim to have been. You don’t know anybody that warrants that level of influence.
When koinonia started here with crowds of people packed to outside, I will come on a bike – miracle service, people are waiting, next thing you hear sound of a bike and I will drop from it honourably with my bible. And at that time, I was already blessed.
Please stop any fake life. We know you are responsible and we k now God will help you. [brothers am I speaking to you?] this pressure of trying to look like Joshua Selman you will die o.
You don’t know the fire have passed through to come to where I am. No no sir! This pressure of trying to do this…
Visitors, if I am coming to your house, if all you have is water, keep it there. Don’t go and borrow money to cook turkey. I didn’t ask you. God is faithful. I am not coming for food.
There are families… we men of God [may God forgive us honestly] because anytime they visit any family, they must prepare honorarium.
Thank God no leader is doing that here, the day I hear that any leader in this place is going to anybody’s house and saying they should package honorarium…no no no!
The God that sent me will judge that leader. That you go to anybody’s house under the canopy of koinonia and go and say they should give you… [no no].
Not every seed sef is collectable. Some things they are birthright, you are collecting your honour and your dignity.
Hallelujah. [praise the lord] Is God helping us tonight?
The spirit of waste!!!
You start saving. You get 50,000 naira every day from your parents- that’s a worker’s salary, yet before half of the month you are begging people who are on their own. ‘
Your make-up kit is 20,000 naira, who cares? If you have the money that’s alright.
There are some of us now, you are planning marriage, you’ve not gone anywhere, you’ve spent 2.5(million).
What are you doing with it? Wedding gown, 500,000 to wear once.
Are you wearing it every day? Suit, 100,000. There is a particular “ankoo” that this group… where is it in the bible?
If you don’t have money, everybody should dress well. Just honour them.
Will they deny that they are your parents? Must they dress in “ankoo”? please hear what I am saying o.
If you eat your size and grow gradually, God will honour you. Honey moon you want to travel out: to where? If you don’t have the money, explain to your wife. Honeymoon is a mentality not an act. Africans waste money!!!
I was sharing with some people today, 12 years celebration of getting born again, 13 years of getting filled with the holy spirit. 2 years of being delivered from smoking; and we organize a big ceremony and we fly people from everywhere.
December, the entire savings of Nigerians from January to November finishes in 3 days. 3 days. 3 days of hilarious living.
You buy hamper 14,000 per one, you buy almost 20 to share because you are looking for a good name in church. No sir!
There are brothers here, you have no business buying a laptop; you don’t have the money. There are sisters you have no business buying certain materials.
If all you have is one trouser, my brother, iron with dignity. The God of heaven who sees you will honour you.
You are not irresponsible. If you meet the sister and she doesn’t like you because of the trouser, God just saved you from a bad wife.
Go away and trust God for a lady who knows how to see in the spirit. Hallelujah.
Don’t put pressure on yourself. You enter any relationship that is a high maintenance relationship killing you, book for counseling.
Book for counseling fast and say, “Apostle, I need help”. I am not saying you are bad people, that’s what counseling is for.
To be able to talk to you and say: “no no no, I think you are spending too much”.
People get married and they don’t have a house.
They get married, they spend 2.5 million and they cannot afford 150,000 for a house because of the life of a waster. May the lord deliver us from the spirit of waste.
What of ministries that waste? Uncommanded projects! Projects that are not commanded by God. “oh, this other man of God is doing it, lets do it too”.
A church comes and they don’t have money, simply because they are seeing people pay school fees, they now start paying people’s school fees; and the entire reserve of the ministry disappears.
“oh, they are buying a pulpit, oh they are buying this, this is 5 million we must also buy it”.
Uncommanded projects! Anywhere God has not taken me to, I am not under pressure, I will get there for sure. Whether you believe it or not, I will get there.
There are levels koinonia has reached by the grace of God and there are levels we have not reached.
I will never put myself under pressure to get into those levels.
Brother, you hand has not reached to buy a car, just take it easy. God of heaven will give you. When favour comes upon your life, it will be like rain. In 24 hours, God will change your life, but by the time you force the door it will open but it will kill you.
We are going to pray.
Has anyone learnt something tonight?
God wants us to rise to be great men and women – first in our family life, but also in very other thing.
