I HAVE NEVER SEEN A STATUE ERECTED IN THE HONOUR OF A CRITIC by Dr. Bien Sufficient

I HAVE NEVER SEEN A STATUE ERECTED IN THE HONOUR OF A CRITIC by Dr. Bien Sufficient

So you want to end your life because of some common critics? You want to stop pursuing your life purpose, dreams and goals because of some naysayers critiquing you?
My dearly beloved, your life is far more than that; your purpose, calling, goals and dreams are worth more than all the critics doing nothing but trying so hard to put you down.
This is what you don’t know, you are far superior to them, you are doing what they have not being able to do in their entire life time and do not even have the ability to do.

They do not understand why you could be such a high achiever why they can’t. Instead of coming to ask you, because of their pride and arrogance they decide to talk you down.

Are you going to let them win? No! No!! No!!!

You are far more than that; you have got all it takes to be successful. Why will you let other peoples opinion or negative talks about you stop you or bring you down.
Don’t worry about them, they don’t count. Just be focus and keep pursuing your dreams. Let them keep talking, that is the only thing that brings them joy and relevance in life, talking about you, be happy for them.

Why border about those who talk at your back? There is a reason why they talk at your back. It means you are far ahead of them and they can’t catch up with you.
Be happy next time when people talk about you. It means you are worthy of attention. That a group of people will sit down and just discuss you? How great and interesting is that. You are so important that they cannot have a good time without the mentioning of your name. Let them have a good time discussing you!

You really do not need to respond to them. Why? You might want to ask. Because they are not worth your time, there are so many more important things to handle my dear. Choose your battles, not all battles are meant to be fought.
You need to learn to ignore things that does not matter or contribute to your life in any form. Stay focus on your goals and keep pursuing your dreams. Sooner or later this same people will begin to celebrate you.
Don’t waste your time on negative critics and negative opinions of others. All my life in existence on earth, I have never seen a statue erected in honor of a critic. That shows you how irrelevant they are. So don’t waste your precious time on things that are irrelevant.

Be focus on what God has created you to do, that is your purpose for existence. It does not matter who believes in you or who do not believe in you. At the end of the day, there is only one person you are answerable to, and that is God.

THE TESTIMONY: FOLLOWING GOD’S INSTRUCTIONS BY IYKE ORIAKU

THE TESTIMONY: FOLLOWING GOD’S INSTRUCTIONS BY IYKE ORIAKU

THIS IS WHAT GOD TOLD ME SOME YEARS AGO THAT MADE ME LOSE THE GIRL I WANTED TO MARRY!

I was afraid to tell anybody that it was God that told me …
I finished writing a quality book, and even borrowed money to publish it… And one morning, after praying, God told me to take the books to wherever I will see teenagers and youths, and to give out the book to them, FREE of charge…

It was not easy… I doubted it…

I quoted scriptures, to convince myself that it was not God that I heard…

But I know when I hear myself and when I hear God…

Even though I was struggling with that instruction… But there was a lot of peace beneath…..
The wonderful lady I was into a marital relationship with then did not understand why God can tell anybody to enter into debt, …

When I told her… Out of her innocence and hood heart, she said:
“I am not against sowing… Me, too, I sow… But how can God know that you even borrowed money to finish the printing of this book and he will tell you to give it out free? Is his Word not against borrowing?”

I did not blame her at all… I even had more questions to ask? …

I did not have a house… I was squatting with people, here and there…

How will she tell her parents that the man that wants to marry her doesn’t have a house where he is living in?
And how was she sure that tomorrow this Iyke Oriaku will not wake up and say that God has told him to sow every thing in the house as seed? … (Lol)
That was her fear… And I didn’t have to blame a good girl that wanted to bring back home a guy who can take care of her…

She was not asking for too much… But that was the beginning of the end of that relationship …

The book was blessing lives across the globe… Men, women, boys and girls were calling, and I was reconciling them to Christ…
I led more than 1000 people to Christ on the phone… I use to pray for more than 200 people on the phone daily… Till today, more calls are still coming…

I have lost count of many cultists that denounced cultism after reading it…

Some prostitutes moved out from brothels and were reconciled with God after reading the book…

In some churches and schools, testimonies were coming, how God was using the book in causing revivals…
Sometimes, parents will call me from far and near, blessing me, with tears, for giving them the book which their children read and began to follow God..
Friends, but when the book finished, I did not have any money to reproduce… People were calling for more copies… The demand was so much that it became a ‘disgrace’ that I could not reproduce such a book…
Many people said I was foolish and that I did not hear from God very well… Others said it was zeal without knowledge…

Many people who saw me in motor parks, or one or two offices, trying to sell few copies, so that I could raise transportation money to take the books to many schools, in far places…
They saw me when the book finished and were telling themselves, but to my hearing: THESE GUY MUST HAVE BEEN OUT OF HIS MIND…
With the demand of that book, I should have bought many cars and landed properties from the proceeds if I had sold it… And I had offers from secondary schools and higher institutions… But I was afraid to disobey God… I gave them out, free..
I did not buy even one slippers from the book…. And I had lost many friends who did not understand why God should tell me such a thing… I could not be bold enough to sleep in their houses again… Because I did not want to become a pest…
I started sleeping inside the uncompleted security houses of the church I was attending then… Nobody knew, except the security man…

Financial, I had nothing… Emotionally, I was heartbroken…
WHY should God tell me what will cost me my love?

Hunger and loneliness and fear of the unknown gripped me… Yet, more calls were coming… Of how God were using the book…

I was happy for the testimonies…. But I was homeless and foodless and ‘hopeless’…

One night, God, after praying, God appeared inside that uncompleted building where I was lying down….

I had never seen such appearance before then… The brightness covered everywhere… He told me:
“I have seen your tears… And from now, I have blessed your writing ministry… My Spirit will rest in everything you will write from this day …”

“Men and women will read what you will write and I will visit them with my Fire … Your writing ministry will bring revival to homes, churches and nations of the world… ”

I was in tears… I was crying… I could not lift my face… In tears, I was asking Him: “Oh God, why me? Why me? Why me? ” And He said to me:
“Remember the time you were praying day and night in camp of Faith, Okigwe, asking me to show you the price you will pay to carry the end time Fire…You said you were ready… This is the price I wanted you to pay … ”

Friends, from that day till now, everything changed….

He did not give me physical cash… But He gave me what money cannot buy…

Please, sir, we are not writing anything on Facebook because we want to have more likes or more comments or more shares on our posts… NEVER!
There are guys who are Facebook on a mission…

Before the world began, Heaven knew that there will be something like Facebook… And it is obvious that you and I are among the people God has set apart to use through this platform…

And we see it as a big privilege…

By the grace of God, all that God told me that night is playing out now…

People wonder why our write ups are too long…
But It’s just because there are many people on some countries of the world now, where what we write here are being translated into their languages , and they use them weekly, for their Sunday schools etc…

In about 18 nations of the world now, which many are missionary places, to His glory, our Facebook write ups are being used as their weekly and some monthly magazine publications…

And hundreds and thousands of people are being touched and revived…

We have not been to these places physically …

But, God through what we write have gone there…. And He is glorifying Himself…

Maybe you are on Facebook to be showing your rivals that you are more handsome or beautiful..

Or to show them that you preach in big churches…

There are people who are here to use this Facebook as a part of the end time platform to spread the revival Fire…

I am talking to people like me who still want to carry the end time Fire….
There is a price to pay…

You have been too comfortable since you entered ministry…

You have not lost anything, intentionally, for God’s sake, since you became a born again…

How then can there be a seal of distinction in your life or ministry?

Tell God to show you the Price to pay for you to carry His Fire in our time…

Unless you are not tired of sitting at ease in Zion…

Unless you have made peace with mediocrity…

Who is that man promising you glory without responsibility?

Who is telling you that people don’t pay for greatness?

Brother, the honour you are looking for must cost you something…

Majesty has a price…

Fire doesn’t fall on any heart that has not lost anything…

I know that we have not seen anything yet… Nothing has even begun.. .

Oh yes… But We are aware that something has begun….

And it is not going to end here on Facebook…

But it can start from here…

You don’t plan revival…

You don’t organize how it will come or where it will start…

It did not start in the synagogue…

It started in the Upper Room…

And that Fire has not stopped till now…

This revival we are crying for might not start from your local church…

Don’t expect that it must start in our big yearly conventions…

God can use any platform where He sees men and women who are hungry for His move…
Who knows, if He can see few ‘broken’ and ‘dead’ men on this plarform, a spiritual awakening might break out from here that might be talked about till Jesus comes…

Already, we have made up our minds to lose anyone or anything that might make us lose God in a time like this …

Whatever price you need from us, Lord, we are ready… Please, give us grace!

Friend, in case you are interested, then, join us this coming month of September, let us pray!

HEAVEN; THE RESULT OF GOD’S PRESENCE by Olawade David

HEAVEN; THE RESULT OF GOD’S PRESENCE by Olawade David

“If one considers the greatest attraction of heaven, is it the golden streets? Is it the tree of life? Is it the presence of angels? Is it fellowship with other redeemed? No! The greatest allure of heaven is the absolutely unbroken presence of God”- Richard Owen Roberts.

If you don’t value God’s presence here on earth, then heaven is not met for you. Heaven represents the absolute reality of God’s presence. Only those that are custodians of God’s presence on earth and desires more of His presence that would make it to heaven. Heaven is not for those who value worldliness than God’s presence.

I believe these questions will give you an answer to where your eternal destiny would be; what is your greatest value here on earth? Is it your career or ambition? Do you value the pleasures and cares of this present world?

The writer of this popular gospel song says; “Your presence is heaven to me”. That should be the cry of every believer. If truly God’s presence is heaven to you, you will guide it and never will you lose it for anything. 

Losing God’s presence on earth is like missing heaven during rapture. It is those that are custodians of God’s presence that will appear in God’s presence when rapture would take place. Beware so it won’t catch you unaware.

Another song writer says; “I won’t go back to the way it used to be, for your presence came and changed me”. Has the presence of God changed you? Are there still trances of the old man in your lifestyle and character? Can you define what happened to you when the presence of the Lord  came upon you at first? Do you still experience it today or it has become a past testimony?.

One of the things God’s presence does is that it changes a man. You can only go back to your old way when you deny the presence of God. The psalmist cried by saying “cast me not away from your presence oh God, take not the Holy Spirit from me. Restore unto me the joy of my salvation and renew a right spirit within me”.

CAST ME NOT AWAY FROM YOUR PRESENCE
This should be the cry of every believer. The presence of God is the life of a believer. It is the oxygen we breath to stay spiritually alive. It is the sum total of our spiritual respiratory system. We are useless without His presence. We become a mere man vulnerable to all sorts of things that are against God’s will, standards and principles without His abiding presence in us.

The renowned evangelist “Pastor Benny Hinn” said He was praying to God for more of His presence. According to him, he said he was amazed as the Holy Spirit ministered to him that his prayer should be “Lord, bring back your presence in my life”. Little did he know that the presence of God had left him. He had to seek the face of God in a retreat for three days for God’s presence to abide again in and with him.

Charles Finney the greatest revivalist said “each time I don’t feel His presence in my life; I withdraw from public engagements until I feel His presence fresh again in my spirit”. Many believers are continuing ministry today after the presence of God had bid them farewell. It is possible for a man to still be engaging in ministerial activities without the presence of God.

What need is your prayers without His presence? What need is your daily devotion without His presence? What need are the volumes of books you have read without His abiding presence in you? What is the value of the programmes and conferences you attended without being a custodian of God’s presence?

Prayer, worship and bible study becomes mechanical without the presence of God. Activities as a church worker become gymnastics without God’s presence. Ministrations without God’s presence become a presentation.

IN ALL THY GETTING, GET VALUE; THE STORY OF MARY KAY BY Olabanji Mayowa Anne 

IN ALL THY GETTING, GET VALUE; THE STORY OF MARY KAY BY Olabanji Mayowa Anne 

It’s amazing how a large percent of the female folk use Mary Kay cosmetics but know little about how the products came into existence.

Of the many lessons to learn from this great woman, I chose to share VALUES:
Mary Kay (founder, Mary Kay Inc., a $1.6 billion-dollar-a-year company ($3.2 billion at retail)was a woman who believed in investing in people. 
She believed in creating values. She placed people before her career. In her words she said, “My prime motivation for going into business was to motivate women. I wanted to provide opportunities for them to create a better life”.

Any step taken that is not concerned with the impact it would have on people is a move based on selfish interest and as such, would not stand the test of time.

The values Mary Kay created is the reason the company is still on even after 15 years of her death.
Through Mary Kay Inc., so many people have gained employment in the makeup industry and also empowering others. 
In the end, value isn’t some vague concept. Value is simply being of service. Something has value as long as it is able to serve. In this sense, value is the potential to serve. When you build yourself towards serving, you can’t help but create value.

It really is that simple.

Be people oriented.

Beyond the money, Beyond the fame, Beyond the comfort, create values.

Seek values and wealth will follow.

You are the change the world is waiting for,

Let the change begin with you!

A LETTER TO THIS GENERATION OF SPIRITUAL FATHERS BY IYKE ORIAKU

A LETTER TO THIS GENERATION OF SPIRITUAL FATHERS OF SOME CHURCHES IN AFRICA … COMING FROM ONE OF THE MEN THEY HAVE FAILED…By Revivalist Iyke Oriaku

That their church is big does not mean their heart is right…

That they have branches all over the world does not score any goal in eternity…

That they run 10 times services and is planning to add more could even be a calculated assistance from hell… To preserve them for hell

You may be older than me, both in age and in ministry, but sir, there is something I saw in the church when I was born that you people are no more telling us…

You people have opened Bible schools everywhere to teach us how to succeed above others in ministry …and really, we are taking over other churches in our cities… We are are building more cathedrals, opening more branches…But yet, more people are backsliding in our cities more than before we came…

All the members of our churches were once members of other churches…

We set traps for them and catch them… None of our members can say how we met them as drug addicts, followed them up,until Christ was formed in them…

All the people we are bragging with are people who attended our programs and dropped their phone numbers. And we started following them up, bombarding them with bulk SMS… Not because we want them to stop going to hell, but because we want them to stop going to their mother churches…. They can still be holding their posts in their secret societies.. They can still be sleeping with all their directors in the offices…

If they have to go to hell, let it be from our churches… As long as we will use their tithes and offerings to build our cathedrals and be paying for our television programs…

That is why don’t have evangelism team in our churches,but we have strong building committees…

We no more preach about hell and heaven in our churches and honestly our crowd is increasing… Our finances is growing… And our choir is doing greatly… But in all these we have not seen that something is wrong with us…

This is the most deceived generation on pulpits…

We met fathers who are telling us not to condemn fake prophets…that we should even honour their invitations… After all, God said: “Judge not”…

They say we should be praying for them so that one day God will arrest them and start using them…And foolishly my half-baked generation have swallowed these Babylonian teachings because these are men who are controlling the biggest churches in our cities…

Sir,that they have height does not mean that they are right…

How can you call us to your ministers conference and be telling us that things have changed, therefore we should change the method of preaching and stop preaching about hell fire, or else, soon,we will have scanty chairs and it will not be good when people will be watching it on the television?

Man of God, a generation of preachers that is afraid to see scanty seats in their churches must lie to their generation… A crowd – hungry generation of preachers must compromise the standard…

No wonder the church is now lacking power!… No wonder our assistant pastors are known drug lords and bloody ritualists in towns…

No wonder our choristers are dragging and fightng themselves over all the married men in our churches who they are dating… No wonder, no one comes out for altar call in our churches, because to them, coming to answer altar call is for people who does not understand grace…

Our version of the message of grace has launched more people to hell … We have robbed our members of the real benefit of grace, because of our own avaricious interpretatjons of grace…And we are bragging in town that we are controlling big names in our cities… Shame on us all!

I respect all the genuine men of God, who have toiled in the land and God is rewarding their prices with glamour and glory… But, sir, God will silence the voices of many fathers we have today who are setting Babylonian standards for the coming generation of preachers… Their impacts will dwindle…Their names shall be forgotten… Their voices shall fade away like echo… Because they are raising a generation that will lead people to hell…

When I was working for Satan,I was not a joker!

Few that encountered me in the ‘streets’ knew that this one was the “champ”…

Why Satan is still missing our kind in hell today is not because we are going to become richer now than we were…

But because there is something he knows we still remember!

We will not blame you if you are just coming…

When you inbox us and call us names before your members from your pulpit, it tells us that you have not been around…

You just graduated from school and entered bible school and came out ,rented a hall, and started doing it the way everybody seem to be doing it now…

When we hear from you we know where you are coming from…

If you have been around, sir, you will not forget so easily what you saw during the days of our fathers… It is not this ministry of ulterior motives…

When terrorists catches a youth, in 2months time, that same youth might become a terrorist… He may have killed over hundred people before a year runs out… But when the church catches youths, we push them to the choir seats..and starts sowing different uniforms for them…and starts marking their attendance in church…

For one year to two years, they will be singing in the choir…

They have not told anybody about Jesus… They have not laid hands on one sick person… They have not delivered one person from demons… ..

But within a year, they have had more than 10 different choir uniforms…

They have sang and danced in more than 3 jamborees and praise nights we have hosted…

Their mates who joined terrorists networks have sponsored or killed hundred or thousands of people, but look at them, always puntual and regular in our church activities… Calling us daddy and mummy… It does not touch us that they are useless to the kingdom of God since they are useful to our church activities…

Some people give their heads in defence of Mohammed, a bloody prophet that was not there when heaven and earth was created…and therefore his preachers are raising boys and girls who have waged war on anyone who calls that name Jesus… In scores, in their profound foolishness, they die….

Where are all those that calls us father and mentor?…

Where are they in the fields where they are needed..

Sir, we cannot be useful to God and have useless children…

We only tell them to pay tithe and that is why they are obedient with it……

If we also tell them to invade nearby neighborhoods and dont come back until they have wrecked shrines and won souls for God, they will also obey… ” ,.but how can they go when no one is sending them?…”

Man of God, let us not be too sure yet that we are useful to God when we are parading useless spiritual children…

God said: ” Shall I hide from Abraham that thing which I do;…for I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him…” (Genesis 18:18,19)

When we have spiritual fathers who are teaching us how to build church and not how to build men…They teach us how to preach and not hurt drug addicts and ritualists in our churches so that they will not stop coming… It was in this case that God is asking: “If you are a father, where is your honour”…

Father, teach me how to die to flesh and not how to bribe to be posted to churches…

Teach me how to lose all for Christ’s sake and not how to use ministry to gain everything…

I still want to make impact in my generation, father, teach me how to look at cobras and vipers sitting beside me every Sunday and tell them boldly, without fearing their withdrawal from church building commitment that… ” Also, the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into fire…”

I don’t want to use lies to keep members…

I don’t want to remove mesages of hell so that they will keep sowing seed …

John the Baptists looked at directors and captains of multi national industries and called them ‘brood of vipers’ and yet he was still running 3 times services… Who is lying to us that we will not have members when we preach the undiluted gospel?

Let’s stop celebrating all these big cathedrals where lies are breed , truth is being rearranged to suit the few and the gospel is being disgraced..

If they have grace let them preach about hell fire for 3months straight in their churches and let us see if they will have such numerical strength again… Let us preach against fornication and adultery …against fraud and corruption… And let’s see if their offerings will be as big as it used to be…If you carry grace, you will not need lies to amass followership…

Unfortunately we think they are among the voices God is raising among us, because they are in billboards and have finished cathedrals… The last time I checked, the voices God raised in their times, since the world began were never afraid to lose men…

Lot was such a man… Sodom and Gommoraah regrets till now for neglecting such a man..

Elijah came and was hated, but Israel obeyed him when God vindicated his sacrifice of tears…

When John the Baptist came, even Israel knew that such men does not come often in any generation, they abandoned convenient bishops who are keeping them to using their money to but house… They abandoned the church positions they were given so as to draw them close enough to be milking them non the name of spiritual civerage Israel abandoned men who have not waited for their time before they rented halls…

And because of the fear of failure, they have decided to water the message down, to attract and keep members…

Yes, they got tired of being pushed down every day yet they are down in life…

They got tired of hearing their phone numbers being called by prophets we are hosting…

They got tired of  being deceived by pastors whose belly is their god…

They trooped out to the wilderness, to hear John the Baptist, a man who has refused to lie to his generation…

I have been blessed with such men…

But Lord, may my generation never go bankrupt of men of such soul calibre,.. This is my prayer…If not we will be known as a generation that failed…

Sir, let us pay the price for that grace to look Into the eyes of presidents of nations and tell them: repent or perish and yet, next Sunday, they will still be the first people to come and be sweeping the church compound… We are getting there sir…That breed must rise up and take over …

Like, Elijah they are hiding somewhere paying costly price that will qualify their voices to be obeyed in the land…

Like John the Baptist, some of them are still in the wilderness… But soon, by their hands, the greatest revival that will hit this earth will be wrought…

Don’t think people are not getting tired of all these pranks and forgeries…

Don’t think they don’t know why we only invite baseless prophets who come to raise funds from us and drop our percentages for us and run away, leaving them the same way…

They are just waiting to see a man who will rise up against the tide…

In your city they are waiting to see a man who will look straight into their eyes and tell them to ‘consider their ways’…

In heaven right now, God is waiting for that breed…

Many of our fathers have failed us…

They have encouraged greed among the circles of young African prophets…

Which of their churches do you still hear testimonies of a people who were once sinners and God saved them…

They don’t allow their protocols to call the people up…because to them, such testimonies does not uplift others…

Instead let’s be hearing testimonies of miracle contracts, jobs, scholarships and marriages….

To this callous generation of preachers, those are testimonies worth celebrating…And you want me to believe that God is not raising a replacement army?…

Don’t pity us sir…

If we depend on your honorarium, it means God did not call us…

Am happy for your big cathedral, sir, but we must not preach in your church…

If I depend on your contacts and invitations, sir. Then it means that there is no ‘oil’ on this big head … “The Lord gave the word: great was the company of them that published “…

This is our backbone… And “Forever Oh Lord, your word is settled in heaven”

There is something we saw during the days of our fathers you people are not telling us…Your people have put our eyes on church politics…

No more  power…and no more souls…

No wonder we have succeeded in carrying your bags, so as to be posted to big churches but we are no more carrying the power of God…

Is that not why our members are patronizing false prophets in the land..

Because where there used to be power, we have replaced it with church politics…

I refuse to apologise to a generation of fathers that have watched their children mortgage the power of God…and yet cannot raise a voice, because false prophets in town pays them tithes and gives them of fat envelops..

My father was a pastor and before he died…

He never built cathedrals…His generation never owned acres … But they left legacies of truth and had spiritual sons and daughters, who till date…Yes… till date are making waves for God…

They stood up and condemned false teachings no matter who was preaching it… They preached about money..about cars…about hell and about heaven… And they raised children who invaded shrines and wrought the power of God…

Oh That generation balanced the scripture… Unfortunately, we are seeing fathers who are parading spiritual sons and daughters who everybody in town knows are using demonic powers to do ministry… But, yet they are not ready to warn them about the judgement that will follow as result of the destinies they are ruinning through their false and demonic altars…

Could that be why God said: “I will be their father and they shall be my children”…

Invade if this generation of fathers fail…

I have seen many fathers in my time, no doubt, who have raised voices and have stood to parent the coming generation… I love them and crave for more of God deposit in them…But, Lord, raise more of such fathers in our time! Especially now that nations and their leaders are tired… Their policies have failed them… They are looking for who to complain their confusions to…

Lord, raise men in my time that will go to government houses of nations when invited and tell the presidents and governors: “… If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land: But if ye refuse and rebel. Ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the LORD has spoken it”…

Lot would have done that if he was here now …

Elijah did it…

John the Baptist cried this same cry…

Paul, that ‘lunatic and fanatic’, sponsored from eternity never missed his opportunities…

Oh Lord, if we have found favour in thy sight, “grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word…”

I don’t want the coming generation to go to our gravesides when we would have finished and read about us that: THESE WERE THOSE MEN WHO LIED TO THEIR GENERATIONS…

THEY BUILT MIGHTY CATHEDRALS…

THEY WERE RUNNING 10 TIMES SERVICES…

BUT THEY LOST GOD BECAUSE THEY WERE AFRAID TO LOSE MEN…

SO YOU WANT THE PROVERBS 31 WOMAN FOR A WIFE??? BY Dr. BIEN SUFFICIENT

SO YOU WANT THE PROVERBS 31 WOMAN FOR A WIFE??? By Dr. Bien Sufficient

It is quite interesting how many men will love to marry a wife like the Proverbs 31 woman. What an irony to discover that very few of these men really know the qualities of the Proverbs 31 woman. It is rather sad that in the 21st century, some men still see women as personal properties. They still believe that women have nothing valuable to contribute to the society. As such, their place should be in the kitchen, labour room and that’s all.

You marry a woman who is a professional, and then you want to stop her from practicing her profession because “she is your wife”. My question to such men is: why did you marry her in the first place knowing she is a hard worker and a career woman? There are so many ladies out there in the streets doing nothing, just looking for a man that can provide for them and make them their wives. I guess you should look in that direction instead of going after a woman fulfilling her purpose and get bent on stopping her after marriage.

It is even more depressing to see this happen not only in the Muslim world but also among Christians that are supposed to be the light of the world. It might interest you to know that many churches today, even as I write this article, still do not believe that women should hold any position of leadership in church, talk more of pastoring.

You don’t want your wife to work, pursue her calling, fulfill her purpose and yet you want a Proverbs 31 woman for wife. Have you ever read Proverbs 31:10-31? I doubt, because if you have read it, you will know that the woman described in this Scripture was a business woman, home keeper and a hard worker. She had a ministry to the poor and needy. You can call her a philanthropist in our today’s English language.

Because of her and the fruits of her hands, her husband is known in the gates of the (city). She brings honor to her husband and children from her achievements. She buys properties with her own money, not the money of her husband- Proverb 31:16. (Well this one is for the ladies who do not want to work hard and are busy hunting for rich men to marry and yet you want to be called a Proverbs 31 woman).

For the men who cannot stand the great achievements of women and their wives, I have a special advice for you; you do not need the Proverbs 31 woman for a wife. We sing the praises of the Proverbs 31 woman, yet we do not encourage our women to be that woman because of pride, arrogance, selfishness and poor mindset.
So many women have lost their life purpose, passion, callings and visions in life just because they are married. They are married to men who believe they are properties that belong to them and the kitchen, to meet their every need and help in fulfilling their dreams while her dreams are not given a chance to be expressed, talk more of being fulfilled.

Marriage is partnership. It is not meant to be parasitic but mutualistic. My dear ladies, before you say “I do” to any man, be very sure he is ready to help you or at least allow you to pursue your calling and purpose in life. “Marriage is not a do-or-die affair”. You don’t need marriage to fulfill your calling or purpose in life, neither is marriage a ticket to Heaven. Don’t sell out your God-given purpose just because you want to be “Mrs. Somebody”.

My dear women, and to the men who love them, encourage your wives to be the best they were created to be. Help them to fulfill their purpose and callings in life. Be a source of motivation to your wife and not discouragement and she will bring honor, respect, and dignity to you all the days of your life. Because of her, you shall be known in the city and be celebrated by all when you sit among the elders.
