See faces at the birthday thanksgiving of Naomi, that took place at Glorious International church Dublin Ireland on the 14th of July 2019.
It was double tragedy for a young man, Felix Ojirike who was brutally attacked by his neighbour as he lost his eye after the attack by one Chidera Eze who was accused of sleeping with Ojirike’s wife in Lagos.
The incident happened at Sanni Dauda Street in Ejigbo, Lagos where they resided.
An eye withness scooped that one of the Ojirike’s eyes was badly damaged, he cannot see with it as he was still lying critical ill at West Care Hospital in Ejigbo, Lagos.
It was gathered that trouble started after the neighbours informed Ojirike that Eze who was an Okada rider used to sleep with his wife whenever Ojirike went to work.
We also gathered that after the neighbours had informed Ojirike that Eze usually left early for work but comes back after he had gone to his own work to stay with his wife, an embattled Ojirike then decided to find out if what their neighbours told him was true. He reportedly prepared and informed the wife that he had gone to work but later came back and met his wife on top of Eze’s bed.
We learnt that it became an issue in the neighbourhood which led to exchange of bitter words that eventually resulted into a public fight between Ojirike and Eze in the compound.
During the fight, Eze reportedly took a sharp object and stabbed Ojirike’s eye. He was rushed to the hospital where he was being treated.
The incident was reported to the police at Ejigbo Division; Eze was arrested and detained at the police station.
When our correspondent visited Ojirike in the hospital, he confirmed the incident and narrated how he caught Eze with his wife.
However, Eze denied that he had sleeping with Ojirike’s wife and explained that it was their neighbours that caused the whole trouble between him and Ojirike by lying against him.
But he was unable to explain what Ojirike’s wife was doing in his room apartment when her husband was not around.
At the police station where Eze was detained, the police source confirmed the assault and detention of Eze and said he will soon be charged to court.
“Every man shall kiss his lips that giveth a right answer” Proverbs 24:26 KJV
It is no longer news that we live in a world of ideas. As the popular saying goes: “Ideas rule the world.” That statement is true because whatever invention or product you see working today is nothing but the brainchild of somebody.
Beloved, if there is any time we need to truly take over, it is now! Today, we live in a world that is looking for answers. The technocrats have failed. The economic predictions have fallen to the ground and many are in utter confusion, seeking for answers. This is the best time for the believer. The world is getting darker and darker; thus, this is the opportunity for the believer to shine brighter and brighter.
“Every man shall kiss his lips that giveth a right answer.” It is not limited to a group of people, but ‘every man.’ People don’t need to like your face first. You don’t need to belong to their group. You don’t need a godfather, godmother or spokesman. But if you have the answer, they will kiss your lips. This generation is waiting for you. That next breakthrough waiting on the wings may just be predicated on that idea which God has given you. The solution to the multifaceted challenges of today’s world can only come through you if you would just engage your mind.
It is my prayer that as you wait on Him, He will give you the knowledge of witty inventions; He will give you a mouth with wisdom that the enemy cannot gainsay or resist. He will open up the country land unto you. Men and women of great reputation will be drawn to you. His plan and purpose for your life will be achieved. You will not be denied. He will announce you and your world will hear and celebrate you. Every door against your promotion is opened today. Every obstacle on the way is broken. Every challenge is rolled away. Your best and brightest days are here! Get ready to celebrate. Your lifting has started!

On your birthday, I wish for you that whatever you want most in life it comes to you just the way you imagined it or better. Happy birthday to you. Wishing you all the best in life.
“When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.” Isaiah 43:2 KJV
I am glad to let you know that the challenges you are facing now is not intended to kill you; your valley experience is only a walk through! It all depends on how you see it: What are you seeing in that situation? Is it the situation you see or the Creator? Whenever you come to a valley in your life, don’t ever think it is your end; it is only a passing through.
Understand clearly that God is passing you through it, so you can look back and acknowledge that God alone took you through it. Yes, it is a walk through, not your destination. I see you walking through those challenges. I know you have questions and desires in your heart; However, I also know you will go through, look back and say, “surely, it had been the Lord.”
God specializes in bringing you out of the valley experience with a song of victory. That is why you must continuously look up to God in your valley experiences. Victory is not the absence of challenges in your life. God has a reputation for turning the challenge you dread most into your greatest victory.
Jesus wouldn’t have come if there were no battles to fight. So, your God is still in charge. Your valleys shall be filled and you will sing a song of victory. Your best days are still ahead of you and your God is faithful to keep you until that day. You will leap into victory and testimonies! He is faithful to bless you according to His promise. He is ever faithful to deliver you from your trials and temptation. You will win! God has said that He will never leave you nor forsake you. Don’t fret! It is only a walk through! I see victory ahead of you. You will emerge victorious at the other side.

United States President Donald Trump on Tuesday said he was proud not to have started a new war.
In his farewell address, the outgoing American leader reminded all that he was the first president to have achieved such a feat in decades.
“I am especially proud to be the first president in decades who has started no new wars. We embarked on a mission to make America great again. We did what we came here to do”, Trump said.
To the incoming administration, he prayed for its success in keeping America safe and prosperous.
“We extend our best wishes and we also want them to have luck – a very important word.”
Trump thanked his family, Vice President Mike Pence and his family, his staff and the Secret Service.
The 45th President expressed gratitude to Americans for the “extraordinary privilege”, adding that serving them was an honor beyond description.
He said together with millions of hardworking patriots, “we built the greatest political movement in the history of our country.”
Condemning the riot at the Capitol, Trump stressed that political violence is an attack on everything the people cherish and can never be tolerated.
He reiterated that his administration built the greatest economy in the history of the world, revitalized global alliances and rebuilt the U.S. military.
“America is not a timid nation of tame souls who need to be sheltered and protected from those with whom we disagree. We restored American strength at home and American leadership abroad,” he said.
Trump boasted that he took on the tough battles, the hardest fights, the most difficult choices as he led the nation.
“As I prepare to hand power over to a new administration at noon on Wednesday, I want you to know that the movement we started is only just beginning”, he emphasized.
“And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him” Genesis 5:24 KJV
Beloved, to walk with God means to develop a strong fellowship with God. When you search the scriptures, you will discover a lot of the saints of old who manifested the glory of God in their lives by walking with God. One clear example of one who walked with God was Enoch. He enjoyed fellowship with God so much to the extent that he was transformed; he found himself in heaven and couldn’t return.
You see, if you develop a strong fellowship with God, it is an atmosphere you do not want to leave or play with. I perceive in my spirit that Enoch walked with God so immensely that poverty, sin, disease, frustration and failure did not find him because you can’t find such things around the presence of God. I come to challenge you today to be a man or woman of His presence, because that’s where you will receive direction, fresh insights and ideas that will put you ahead of the pack.
Walking with God also means knowing Him; not by mere studies, but by revelation. Understand that you cannot fellowship with a God that you do not know. To know God is to be like God; it is to know Him intimately as a man knows a woman. When you know Him this way, you will have a conception of something. Something will be deposited inside you.
Beloved, the more you fellowship, the more of God you discover. The beauty about God is that when you are looking at Him on one side, He will show you another side. That is why you can never get tired of seeking and knowing Him. The more you know the different parts of Him, the stronger you become. You cannot know God by one scoop. He is a revelation. As you keep seeking Him, He will continually reveal more of Himself to you. I encourage you to take a quality decision today, to strive to know and serve Him for as long as you live.

“Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country and from thy kindred, and from thy Father’s house, unto a land that I will show thee” Genesis 12:1 KJV
Abraham would have died without being the father of faith if he had remained in Haran. The Scripture tells us that his wife was barren, he was already old and his father died there. He would have remained there, but thank God he did not. God called them out from the Ur of the Chaldees.
Abraham had to be separated from his family in order to be positioned for what God had planned to do in his life. You also may need to depart from certain things that hinder you. You may have to give up certain habits or cut off certain friends who are not enhancing your progress. You may even need to desist from going to places that you usually go to. There are some of you who have to depart from tradition. You are going to church, you are a Christian but you are still tied to family tradition. You are wrongly positioned! You need to reposition yourself.
Beloved, only God’s way is successful: “Except the Lord build the house they labour in vain that build it, except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain” (Psalm 127:1 KJV). Whatever God is not building will not last. It is important, therefore, that you come out from the secret things you have involved yourself in. God wants to reposition you for your next level. Abraham departed and the rest is history. When he moved out in obedience to God’s Word, things began to happen in his life.
God is very specific. When He called Abraham, He gave Him direction. Now that He has called you, He also wants to give you direction. You have to reposition yourself to receive all that He has in store for you and when you do, you will see His blessings in a dimension you never imagined. I declare that the enemy will not shortchange you.

Ehi Ogbebor, an interior decorator, has gone public to reveal her relationship with Musiliu ‘MC Oluomo’ Akinsanya, Lagos chairman of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW).
She took to her Instastory to put out emoji-laden photos of her spending time with Akinsanya.
Although Oluomo’s face was covered with emojis, Ogbebor is seen giving the NURTW chairman a kiss on the cheek.
Included in Ogbebor’s photo of Oluomo was an inscription that read “king” alongside a love emoji below his torso.
Ogbebor also shared footage of her spraying naira notes on MC Oluomo as he danced at the 5th coronation anniversary of the Oluwo of Iwo Land, which held on Saturday.
As word of her relationship spread, Ogbebor put out a video refuting claims that her lover bankrolled her business.
“I’m beating my chest to say it. No man spent one dime on my house. If you did and you’re a man and you don’t speak up, God will punish you. I’m betting a $100,000. Come out if you claim to have bankrolled me,” she said.
“Or you spent one Naira in my business or building my house. I built my house myself. I’m on the road at times, four days a week. I do it for myself and my kids. Stop ruing the minds of these little girls.
“You’re making them think they have to be with men for money. Beyonce is with Jay-z. Is he bankrolling her? What are you teaching girls? I will be with a man I care about. He doesn’t need to give me a dime because I don’t need it!
“Come out if you’ve bankrolled me; given me money to go and do business. You better speak. I just bet $100,000.”
The late actress Folake Aliu, also know as Orisa Bunmi was laid to rest in her home town in Isin Ila in Kwara State.
May she continue to rest in peace, Amen.
