Count Your Blessings

Dear friends, 

One of the favorite things I do to count my blessings is to wake up in the middle of the night and watch my wife and son sleep. Just thinking about those times fills my heart with gladness and my face with smiles. 

I also like to BREATHE and be thankful and grateful for being alive. 

One other thing I do often is to reflect on the strong winds and storms of life; the bad times and how we came out stronger and better from those times. 

I think of how God has been faithful to my parents, siblings and my own nuclear family even when we have been less than faithful to God. 

I think about my friends; the good, the bad and the ugly and how each and everyone has been a source of learning, lifting up and encouragement. 

As 2016 comes to an end,  my prayer is that regardless of the winds, storms and the bad times we may encounter in life, our hearts and lips will continually be full of gratitude, peace and love as we continue experiencing God's mercy and grace and... 2017 and beyond we will deliberately and on purpose always COUNT OUR BLESSINGS. 

Love you all, 

'Yomi Faneye.

Marriage & Divorce: Making Your Marriage Work

Dear friends,

Making a marriage work is one of the most tasking and also one of the most fulfilling things I have found to do in my life. It is not just something you wish and hope for; you have to “work” it out.

CAVEAT: As long as the husband and wife are committed to helping, encouraging, and lifting each other and committed to their marriage and choose to “work” out their differences, the marriage will always work.

The moment one person gives up and the other fails to do the needful which is helping, encouraging and lifting, there is a gap in the marriage just like a crack in a wall if not taken care of could lead to something harmful creeping into the marriage.

This could eventually lead to a gradual breakdown as their feelings for each other reduce while they do little or nothing to make it better.

To the man:

Learn not to take yourself too seriously and save little fights for big battles.

To the woman:

Learn not to test your man’s patience so it doesn’t run out.

To the separated and divorced:

DO NOT LET THE WORLD OR THE CHURCH LABEL YOU WHO OR WHAT YOU ARE NOT. You are firstly a human being and every human being (single, married, seperated & divorced) deserves to be happy.

If you have tried in marriage but failed, it is not the end of the world and that can never define who you are; you are the only one to define who you are. Get yourself up and try again if you can with your husband or wife; get up and try again with another person if you must but DO NOT EVER LET THE WORLD OR THE CHURCH LABEL YOU WHO OR WHAT YOU ARE NOT.

God loves you regardless of who you are, what you have done or where you have been.

A child goes from primary school to secondary school and on to the university. There are series of tests and examinations along the way the child has to pass in order to advance to the next stage or class. Sometimes, the child is asked to repeat a class because he/she has performed unsatisfactorily.

In marriage, there is a very close similarity as there are different tests and examinations the husband and wife have to pass “TOGETHER” in order to advance to the next stage or class. Make sure you study for your tests and examinations in marriage and pass them "TOGETHER" in order not to repeat the class; if you do fail, GET UP AND TRY AGAIN.

Above all, trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths.

Love you all,

‘Yomi Faneye.

Go and Sin No More.

Apostle Paul & the fornicator:

 "To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.

Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump?

Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us:"

Our Lord Jesus Christ & the adulterer:

"And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,

They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.

Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?

This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.

So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.

And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.

And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.

When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?

She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.

Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life."

Choose today whom though follows; Apostle Paul, Pastor Chris, Bishop Shifu, Evangelist Oga or Jesus Christ?


The Just Shall Live By Faith.

Seed and Harvest

You sow a corn seed by planting it into the ground and reap a harvest of a corn cob.

You sow the human seed (sperm) by having sexual intercourse or by artificial insemination and you get the harvest as a baby.

You sow money seed by investing and reaping a harvest of profits.

It is the seeds sown that produce a harvest and never the seeds given.

A seed is a unit of reproduction that is capable of developing into another of its kind.

3 things are needed for a seed sown to produce a multiplied harvest. Soil, water and the right temperature.

I encourage you to sow as much as you are giving and even more.

God bless you.

A Place of Total Surrender.

Romans 8
28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according toHis purpose.

Romans 9
15 For He says to Moses, “I will have mercy on whomever I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whomever I will have compassion. 16 So then it is not of him who wills, nor of him who runs, but of God who shows mercy.

2 families take communion daily.
Family 1 has a member who is in a car accident but comes out alive.
Family 2 has a child who falls sick but eventually dies.

2 couples in their old age have given tithes and offerings all their marital lives.
Couple 1 are very wealthy, live in the best part of town and are highly respected and known within society.
Couple 2 are very poor, can barely afford to pay their rent and are neither respected nor known within society.

Lesson 1.
It is not of him who takes communion nor to him who gives tithes and offerings, but of the Almighty God who shows mercy.

Lesson 2.
All things include not just the good but the seemingly bad also therefore;

If you survive an accident, ALL THINGS work together for good.
If you lost a child, ALL THINGS work together for good.
If you are wealthy, ALL THINGS work together for good.
If you are poor, ALL THINGS work together for good.

The condition is that you love God and you are called according to God's purpose.

I challenge you today to know God for yourself through His word and to love Him with all your heart.

Where God wants us is a place of TOTAL SURRENDER where no matter the situation or circumstance God remains God in our lives.

READ, STUDY and thereafter DO the word of God.

There's a fresh wind blowing in the body of Christ.

God Blesses Us Freely

To say that tithes or offerings is what gives financial prosperity or causes open heavens totally negates the message of GRACE.

Remember, to receive by grace means it's unmerited and undeserved.

God has blessed us freely and he wants us to equally bless freely.

Ko gb'owo, ko gb'obi
Ko gba nkankan lowo mi
Ko to damisi o
Ko gba nkankan l'owo mi

He didn't take any money, yet no offering
He didn't take anything from me
Before God blessed me
He collected NOTHING from me.

Freely receive and therefore freely give.

It's All About The Numbers

Romans 8:19

"For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God."

I'm a numbers' person and I know that business is about the numbers; about people.

The more people you serve or have as your customers the more profitable you are.

If you sell "satchet water" also know as "pure water" at N10 with a profit of N5 on each satchet, assuming each individual buys only one satchet per time, you have to sell to 200 people to make N1,000. To make N1m, you need to sell to 200,000 people. Chaiii see work o.

Now, let's assume this water seller is able to make minimum wage of N18,000 monthly, that means he's able to sell to 3,600 people.

Now let's look at a church with a 100 man strong congregation also known as a small church with each of the 100 people earning same minimum wage of N18,000 that's a tithe of N1,800 multiplied by100 equals N180,000.

Oya let's see a medium sized church of 10,000 working people, N1,800 multiplied by 10,000 equals  N18,000,000. Oh boy see money! Hehehehe

Now let's look at a mega church of a minimum of 1,000,000 working people, multiply that by N1,800 that's N1,800,000,000 monthly income. N1.8billion. (And we know most people earn far more than minimum wage) Why I no go buy private jet?

The church understands perfectly it's about numbers so tell me who doesn't want that mega church.


Why won't we the members work the numbers for ourselves too?


Oya, bring the tithe into the store house or god will punish you. (SARCASM)

The altars of baal

Judges 6:25‭-‬32 NKJV

Now it came to pass the same night that the Lord said to him, “Take your father’s young bull, the second bull of seven years old, and tear down the altar of Baal that your father has, and cut down the wooden image that is beside it; and build an altar to the Lord your God on top of this rock in the proper arrangement, and take the second bull and offer a burnt sacrifice with the wood of the image which you shall cut down.” So Gideon took ten men from among his servants and did as the Lord had said to him. But because he feared his father’s household and the men of the city too much to do it by day, he did it by night. And when the men of the city arose early in the morning, there was the altar of Baal, torn down; and the wooden image that was beside it was cut down, and the second bull was being offered on the altar which  had  been built. So they said to one another, “Who has done this thing?” And when they had inquired and asked, they said, “Gideon the son of Joash has done this thing.” Then the men of the city said to Joash, “Bring out your son, that he may die, because he has torn down the altar of Baal, and because he has cut down the wooden image that was beside it.” But Joash said to all who stood against him, “Would you plead for Baal? Would you save him? Let the one who would plead for him be put to death by morning! If he is a god, let him plead for himself, because his altar has been torn down!” Therefore on that day he called him Jerubbaal, saying, “Let Baal plead against him, because he has torn down his altar.”

One remarkable thing about this story is that Gideon's father Joash was the one who constructed the altar of Baal and the wooden image beside it. God instructed Gideon to destroy the  altar of Baal which he promptly did in obedience to God.

The men of the city came to Joash and asked for his son Gideon so they might kill him.

However, Joash protected his son; he said, "Let Baal plead for himself because Gideon has torn down his altar."


Are you a father who has knowingly or unknowingly built a false altar?

Are you a father who has refused to take the correction of God because it has come through your son?

REPENT. Let God be true and every human being a liar.

Remember, God's will through His Holy Spirit is to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just, to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.

There is a fresh wind blowing in the body of Christ.

Honour Your Father

Dear friend,

If for any reason whatsoever your father disowns you, do not be alarmed.

Go out into the world and whatever good thing your hands find to do, do it well; do it so well that you excel and stand out among others.

Go ahead remembering all the things your father taught you, make yourself proud and make your father proud until he proudly calls you, SON.

& as you excel and advance in life remember to ...

Note To Self.

Fellow apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers who have been called to perfect the saints for the work of ministry, are we true to our calling to perfect them or we have veered of to imperfect them, consciously or unconsciously?

Have we become like the world's leaders who are mostly feared rather than loved by their people?

God wants to do so much through us and bless as many lives as possible through us but if we don't change from our wicked ways, he won't quench our lights but he will definitely raise new people who will have their lights shine brighter, people who are not in ministry for fame or for gain; people who will be loved rather than feared.....

We have foolishly surrounded ourselves with "YES " men who say and do only what we want but not what God wants; ABOMINATION UNTO GOD.

Let's change our ways now, nurture and love the people God has put into our TRUST; build love instead of fear;  perfecting saints rather than doing otherwise; helping the saints get rid of their imperfections and struggles instead of making them worse; loving them, helping marriages to stay strong, feeding and teaching to feed themselves, acknowledging that we are not God and we can NEVER be God and loving people just like God loves them regardless of their imperfections.

The Spirit of the Lord is talking and those who have ears to hear, let them hear.

We have been warned.

How Christian Billionaires Have Sown Their Seeds.

A wise farmer knows that his harvest will always come from the seeds he plants in his own farm. From his harvest, he first sets asides seeds to plant for the next planting season, then he sells some, eats some and gives some out to those in need. A wise farmer knows that whatsoever he plants, he must surely reap.  Only a lazy farmer would expect his harvest to come from the seeds he eats, sells or gives to someone in need.

A farmer will be rewarded from every seed he eats, that which he sells and that which he gives out to someone in need but he always knows that his harvest will only and always come from the seeds he plants.

In terms of money, it is the same as money is a seed which produces a multiplied harvest of the same when planted in the right soil.

To plant money means to invest money. The world's wealthiest chirstians are not just givers but they are investors of money. They thereafter give heavily from the multiplied seed harvest of their money.

1. Tyler Perry. Planted in Tyler Perry Studios. Networth: $400 million.
2. Cher Wang & Wenchi Chen. Planted in HTC Corporation. Networth: $8.8 billion.
3. Strive Masiyiwa. Planted in Econet Wireless. Networth: $1.4 billion.
4. David Green. Planted in Hobby Lobby. Networth: $5.6 billion.
5. Do Won Chang & Jin Sook Chang. Planted in Forever 21. Networth: $5.4 billion.
6. Folorunsho Alakija. Planted in Rose of Sharon and Famfa Oil. Networth: $2.1 billion.
7. Yomi Faneye. Planted in Bootstrap and another Undisclosed brand. Networth: Undisclosed

In conclusion, I want to encourage us all that as we give seeds, eat seeds, we must most importantly plant in our own farms because that is where the true harvest comes from.

Eat and Give but most importantly INVEST.

Giving Is Not Sowing Part 2.

May God give us eyes to see and understand.

"2 Corinthians 9:6-7 But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver."

That scripture talks about sowing and reaping and it also talks about how it affects giving.

You SOW small and you REAP small so therefore you GIVE from your small harvest.

You SOW big and you REAP big therefore you GIVE from your big harvest.

The very same way Cain and Abel sowed, Cain being a tiller of the ground and Abel being a keeper of sheep and they REAPED a harvest after which they GAVE offerings out of their harvest.

Scriptures talk about the relationship between sowing and reaping and how it affects giving.

Alas, we have thrown away the very importance of sowing and declared that giving is equal to sowing. Ignorance gone on rampage.

Sowing comes before Giving. You SOW, you REAP then you GIVE.

Giving Is Not Sowing

Abel was a keeper of sheep; Cain was a tiller of the ground. They both sowed and reaped after which they gave offerings. #givingISNOTsowing

Noah gave offerings out of what he had; not in order to have. He gave from an existing harvest. You sow, reap then GIVE. #givingISNOTsowing

Abraham gave a tithe out of an existing harvest, albeit not his own. He DID NOT tithe in order to get a harvest. #givingISNOTsowing

Abraham was ready to give Isaac as offering; eventually gave a ram as an offering. In both instances he first received. #givingISNOTsowing

Jacob gave offerings to God out of what he already had. Every single offering he gave he first received in a harvest. #givingISNOTsowing

Moses said to Pharaoh, "You must also give us sacrifices and burnt offerings, that we may sacrifice to the Lord our God. #givingISNOTsowing

Jethro, Moses' father-in-law took a burnt offering and offered sacrifices to God out of what he already had. #givingISNOTsowing

Every person who gave an offering first received it. The process was set up at creation & NOTHING can change it. #givingISNOTsowing

Be fruitful (SOW), Multiply(REAP), Replenish the earth(GIVE). Without this you can't subdue the earth or have dominion. #givingISNOTsowing

The more we teach that giving is sowing the more we make people poorer. When we teach people right EVERYBODY wins. #givingISNOTsowing

Sacrificial Giving: The Cain & Abel Story.

Cain and Abel both sowed and reaped and from their harvests gave offerings to God.

Why was God happy with Abel and unhappy with Cain? Abel gave sacrificially; as an act of worship from his harvest and in total surrender.

On the other hand, Cain did not give sacrificially because he wanted something back from God. Sacrificial giving expects NOTHING in return. When Cain saw that God was unhappy with his offering, his countenance fell because his heart was not pure; he simply should have gone back to give God a better offering but instead chose to murder his own brother.

NOTE: They both sowed and reaped; Cain a tiller of the ground, Abel a livestock farmer. It was from their harvest that they gave offerings.

God is our provider and we must always expect Him to play His part of being a provider at all times for the sole and simple reason that HE IS GOD and he Has given us His word about the things He will do and give us in our lives. However, when we give it must be an act of faith and worship and should not be connected to our expectations of God.

If you can still tie and connect an open door or God's blessing to some seed you have sown, money you have given, help you have rendered or anything whatsoever on the face of this earth that you could have done to deserve or make this thing happen, you are only still scratching the surface of the things God is able to do in your life.

When God shows up, when He opens a door, when His hand is upon you, HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA, your lips of clay or your heart of flesh will NEVER be able to utter or phantom that it happened because of something you did or something you may have done.



1 Corinthians 2:9
But as it is written:
“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,
Nor have entered into the heart of man
The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”

Isaiah 64:4
For since the beginning of the world
Men have not heard nor perceived by the ear,
Nor has the eye seen any God besides You,
Who acts for the one who waits for Him.

Ephesians 3:20
Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever.

Elijah was sent to a specific widow and not to all widows even though there were numerous widows in Zarepath.

We need to STOP misleading people with these financial gimmicks in order to raise money for the local church. Rev. Kenneth E. Hagin tried to correct this error in the body of Christ before going home to be with the Lord.


We need to desist from this error and stop making a doctrine out of it.
