WE ARE A TEAM PART 2; I SHARE IN YOUR PAINS COMRADES, YOU GOD IS MY GOD AND YOUR SAVIOUR IS MY SAVIOUR BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE

Don’t look down on a soldier when the door of the upper room (a place of rejuvenation) is not shut against me permanently.

Where were all the people that mocked Peter when he denied the master while his apron was healing the sick and when God used him to raise the dead?

I believe those that “laughed at him then learned from him later” after his encounter at the upper room.

Only time would tell sir, a “fallen soldier” today can be a “favoured soldier” to led the battalion that once mocked him when he was staggering.

I know there are young folks out there that started ministry before me. Some are still labouring in the secret while some due to one thing or the other haven’t gotten established in the faith. I look forward to staying connected to you and if I’m not doing it as I ought to, please find a place in your heart to forgive me.

To those who are staggering at the moment and desire my attention in one way or the other, I can’t wait to connect and be united to you.

Listen fellow soldier, that you “fornicated” doesn’t mean you can’t be “fortified” again. That you were once “forsaken” doesn’t mean you are “forgotten”. That you once committed “adultery” doesn’t mean you can leave above an “adulterated” lifestyle.

Arise mighty soldier and shake off the dust, that you are down during the process doesn’t mean you should remain down because of the guilt. Don’t reject the outstretch hand of God that desires to pull you back to your feet and the grace to keep you standing till the end.

I share in your pains comrades, you saviour is my savior and your God is my God. You may be “wounded” today but you can be “wanted” for the propagation of kingdom dynamics tomorrow. You may have experienced “scandal” some time ago, you can be an envoy of “wonder” some days ahead.

We are a team, a body and a kingdom. I need you to survive, we are connected for life.

WE ARE A TEAM; THAT YOU STARTED DOESN’T MEAN YOU ARE STANDING; THAT YOU ARE STANDING TODAY DOESN’T MEAN YOU CAN’T STAGGER TOMORROW Part 1 BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE

WE ARE A TEAM; THAT YOU STARTED DOESN’T MEAN YOU ARE STANDING; THAT YOU ARE STANDING TODAY DOESN’T MEAN YOU CAN’T STAGGER TOMORROW Part 1 BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE

Fellow soldiers, let’s be conscious to use our bullets against the enemy and not against ourselves. May our bullets not be found on the body of a dead soldiers after a spiritual autopsy is done on them. Remember, we would give account someday of how we should the riffle that was once delivered to us.

Many today are contributing to the fall of a staggering soldier by publicizing their weakness and areas where a staggering soldier has been shot in the bid of making people and the commander see that they are standing at that moment. I rather help a staggering soldier to rise than help a staggering soldier to fall.

I won’t leave fallen soldiers behind in our camp so that people can always see me with a standing soldiers all the time. I will love to be remembered that I was one of those that chose to “stand by” fallen soldiers than “standing against” them.

Even if the soldiers have to die in the long run, I know that in their graves, their voices will stand as a memorial before God, telling God never to let me die the way they died.

Ministry is not just social media posts and pulpit, ministry is a team spirit. We might not agree in many dimensions and operations in the kingdom but we are still a team.

May “commendation” of good works of our fellow soldiers swallow up completely the open “condemnation” of the the excesses of our fellow soldiers in our camp.

We won’t allow a singular mistake of a fellow soldier make us forget the thousands of good works they have done over time.

We won’t think we have to tell or report to our commander who He should withdraw from our team, He is the judge of all and He desires who He would use. Rather, we would plea to our commander on behave of a fellow soldier for our commander to restore him back to the team and fortify him more.

We won’t write anyone off in our camp. That they missed a step doesn’t mean they are missing in the agenda of God.

To be continued.

BE INTENTIONAL ABOUT WHAT YOU DO: YOU CAN BE CELEBRATED WHERE YOU ARE DESPISED, ONLY TIME WOULD TELL BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE

BE INTENTIONAL ABOUT WHAT YOU DO: YOU CAN BE CELEBRATED WHERE YOU ARE DESPISED, ONLY TIME WOULD TELL BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE

I was privileged today to visit the Lagos State House Of Assembly as my beloved brother, Bar. Tosin Akande hosted me with my intention to consult him on personal issues and politics.

I remember years ago as an undergraduate when I met him for the first time as he graced an event back then as the guest speaker. He asked about my aspirations for the next five years of my life and I told him about my love for the media and shared the vision of “Masterpiece Publishing House”. He told me he would follow me up to see how serious I would take actions on what I shared with him.

Ever since then he has indeed followed me up, though I see him more on the media (T.V and newspaper) as he speaks on social transformation and the fate of the Nigeria Politics. I haven’t achieved all that I desired and shared with him but all glory to God, many of the goals have been achieved and I’m working tirelessly to see the rest fulfilled.

As I appeared close to the Lagos State House Of Assembly, every moment seem to appeal to me and got me thinking. I sighted from afar two giant five storey buildings side by side and I imagined that the decision for the centre of excellence is made in this buildings by the men who are privileged to be there.

Like Abraham Lincoln said to his wife after his first visit to the White House, he told her this would not be their last visit to the White House and they won’t visit any longer as a stranger but as a foreman of recognition. I also told myself, “this won’t be my last time here and I won’t come as a stranger again”.

As I got to the security post, the drama started. It was Act 1, Scene 1 at the security post. Prior to getting to the security post, Bar. already told me to tell the security personnel where and who I was intending to see and ask them to direct me but one of them said to me, “where are you from?”. Hmmm, I was dazed by that question and tried to put myself together before responding. I responded by also asking, “where are we? and what does where I’m from have to do with the person I desired to see or will it change how to get to him?”.

To avoid unnecessary drama, I called Bar. to speak to our friends and I got over the drama. Seriously, the good reports of Bar. started from the security post as other security personnel told me if they were aware earlier that it was Bar. Tosin Akande I desired to see they would have directed me straightway and won’t have attended to me in such manner. I told them I could relate to that but very soon I won’t be experiencing such drama anywhere I go and we all smiled.

I found my way to see him though I still had to meet different personnel to get through to him. It was a wonderful time. I told myself; “a day is coming where God’s grace and impact in our lives we put personalities on ovation when we visit places like this, such day won’t tarry”.

These are what I concluded for young folks who are intentional in making positive progress and transform their generation;

One day, your critics would soon be your fans. Very soon, those who wrote you off would read in volumes what others would write about you. Ask Christiano Ronaldo how he did it that the home fans of Juventus football club gave him an ovation after spearheading the lost of their team to the advantage of his side. Very soon, those who wrote you off would read in volumes what others would write about you.

The foreign universities you applied but failed to grant you admission due to one thing or the other would call your attention to honour you with honorary doctoral degree if you are remain enthusiastic about your dreams.

The T.V station that turned you down when you desired to get an airtime to show the world your concern for humanity through your expertise will one day pay you to broadcast your impacts even when you won’t even have the time to view it yourself.

The newspaper dailies you desired to publish your thoughts and nuggets but despised you will soon make your exploits their headlines day after day but you won’t have the time to read it yourself because you would be busy with doing more than what they published having the understanding that you haven’t gotten to the peak of it all yet.

A time is coming where you will visit the embassy where they once asked you tens of questions and yet they denied you visa. At that time you will get there, they will ask; “how may we help you?”, you will respond by saying; “I must help your country because your government requested for my attention as an answer to your economic issues”. They would no longer ask you questions because you would have metamorphosized to being an answer to the needs of the nations.

Be patient folks and be discerning. This is not time to be discouraged or to give up. Only time would tell. There is something about you that our generation is yet to see.

IF YOU SEE MY BROTHER, PASTOR DANIEL OLAWANDE, TELL HIM THESE ARE WHAT I HAVE AGAINST HIM.

IF YOU SEE MY BROTHER, PASTOR DANIEL OLAWANDE, TELL HIM THESE ARE WHAT I HAVE AGAINST HIM.

Please, I won’t listen to any apologies or explanations on his behalf and I would be so factual to communicate my plight.

Often times, we have been mistaken to be “twin brothers” but he does not care to leave me as a “single brother”.

He accepted that I’m is brother on different occasions when he was asked but he didn’t tell me how to make a sister around me accept relationship proposal even when we see on different occasion.

He told me to always sustain the fire in my bones but he didn’t tell me to look for a sister that carries fire to be the bone of my bone as he did.

He told me the Lord would make “everything beautiful in his time’ but he didn’t tell me to look for a sister that his “beautiful all the time in everything” as he has found sister Nifemi.

He told me I need to be “prophetic to be impactful”, he didn’t tell me I needed to be “prophetic to be romantic”.

He told me “how necessary it is to be engaged with the things of God” but he didn’t tell me “how necessary it is to be engaged to the sister of God”.

Anytime we meet, he tells me about the “move of God in the public” but he didn’t tell me “the sister of God is moving him in the secret”. Please help me ask him, is that not “hypocrisy”.

The last time we saw, he addressed me as “boss” with the same mouth he uses to call sister Nifemi “Bae”. Thank God everyone knows who the Boss is between us and who the Bae is. Please, is that not “deceptive”.

Lol, you think I didn’t know that it was not flesh and blood that revealed the pattern of your proposal to you that day at RCCG Youth centre.

You think I didn’t know that it was the gift of discerning of spirits that you used to capture that song you sang before the proposal, “Ife re po, ife re po gan”.

Baba, you sly me big time and you know I’m really going to get back to you. Lol, from today I “dis-twin brother you oo” and don’t beg me.

I love you sir, thanks for always inspiring me. Been a long time coming Boss. Together we would be all that Christ has made us and do our part in heralding this generation.

I put my hands into yours and would stand by you till the end. You are my brother, my daddy is your daddy and importantly, my God is your God. Lol, I know some folks are expecting me to add “you spouse is my spouse” but I don’t want to die young. Our daddy (Daddy G.O) during the wedding anniversary told us that he can kill because of our Mummy (Mummy G.O) and I know definitely you can do the same with same believe and covering.

We are connected for life. Greater things are ahead of us. Let’s keep pressing and progressing. Our beginning is yet to began, we are still warming up.

Our minds are made up, our heads are up high and our eyes are on the goal. Everyday is a plus for us.

Thanks for checking on me this morning. I’m not taking it for granted neither did I deserve it, love made it all possible.

Now, I’m waiting for who will apologize or give an explanation on your behave.

MY EXPERIENCE FROM LATE NIGHT TRANSIT BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE

MY EXPERIENCE FROM LATE NIGHT TRANSIT BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE

The Punishment- Looking Good, The Bail Out.

Route- Ondo City To Ore, Ore to Okitipupa, Okitipupa back to Ore, then, Ore to Lagos in one day. All glory to God for all around journey mercy and safety.

Arriving at midnight, mum said; “you made me stay awake and worried but happy to see you looking good on the outfit anyways”. Lol, you know that kind of smile that you wear when you hear such compliment.

I thought I was going to “stood down” as a punishment till day break but she had something else on mind. She requested that I must take pain killer pills due to the stress.

I pleaded but she insisted. Trust me, she ensured that she watched me closely until the pills went through my oesophagus as she remembered when I was a growing up lad, I often act the drama of throwing pills away even in her presence by pretending to swallow it.

My Explanation For Activating “Flight Mode” On Transit.

Mum didn’t ask for an explanation for boarding night transit. She only recommended that I should trust God to enlarge my coast so I can avoid public mass transit and also avoid land transit.

The only explanation she demanded was why she couldn’t get through to me after the call telling her the time I would be arriving when I was on my way home.

I told her what I always do on transit. After the driver takes off, I always switch my phone to “flight mode” as I imagine myself on air and to avoid in my mind some effects of gallops due to portholes on the road.

It was a wonderful moment gisting with her through the night after my arrival. Love her like “kilode”.

The Surprise I Gave My Bae (My Coldstone Babe)

Little sister was also dear as usual to welcome me, she was able to later get through to me on call while on transit.

She said I shouldn’t forget that which she always demand from me whenever I’m coming home.

Guess what it is? “Plantain Chips”. It was quite unfortunate due to my late arrival, that I didn’t even see anyone selling “Plantain” not to talk of “chips”.

When it’s Bae’s matter on my mind, I always plan for alternative, “Plan B” which is always a surprise to her and she always value it more.

Don’t ask me what the plan B was.

The Lesson.

Ensure you value your family as you have pledged allegiance to your ministry, business and career. Without their supports in one way or the other may be you won’t have gone thus far.

Value, cherish and maximize every moment you share with your family members. Make it memorable and always create time to see them again as you plan your personal schedules.

YOU ARE NOT SHOWING OFF FOR BEING WHO YOU ARE AND YOU ARE NOT PROUD FOR BEING YOU BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE

YOU ARE NOT SHOWING OFF FOR BEING WHO YOU ARE AND YOU ARE NOT PROUD FOR BEING YOU BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE

We are in a generation where we experience a man being termed to be “showing off” when he makes his progress visible or known to others even when the person is just being himself without being satisfied of his present state.

Listen to me, you don’t need to look beggarly or confused to make someone happy. Acting like a mediocre or pitiable is not a sign of humility.

Jesus was just fulfilling His call and ministry but the Pharisees continued to accuse Him of “showing off” neglecting the fact that He was just being who God sent him to be. He didn’t only show them He could demonstrate the power of God, He also sent those He ministered to in the absence of the Pharisees to go and tell the Pharisees in the temple what had happened by their encounter with Him.

There are young folks out there, fulfilling God’s mandate on their lives and being who God has made them but they are being accused of “showing off the power of God and His grace”. Thank God they are accused of “showing off the power of God” because I have realized that these accusers are silent when they see men who are of the world “showing off the power of the devil”.

Lately, I realize that people dislike to hear your testimony when making progress on a conquest but are happy to hear about your tribulations and frustrations when retrograding. They laugh at your tribulations in the camera and behind the scene but criticize your testimony in the open.

You owe no man an apology for progressing positively. You owe no man an explanation for being the wonder that you are.

“Do not allow the shade of your critics block the light of your success”- Bishop FEB Idahosa

I see young folks on social media publicizing immorality and people of like passion like them celebrate. Immoral post gets more likes, shares, comments and less criticisms while posts of a young folks that is succeeding on a conquest and relating a rightful mindset gets lots of corrections and critics from people of his kind. What a wickedness I have seen under the sun.

You don’t need to snap picture in the dustbin to tell us you are humble neither do you have to snap in Miamia to show that you are proud. Just be who are, where you are.

Don’t try and get people’s attention by being who you are not because you will have to continue faking it to retain the attention of men which may be costly all along.

Hear me sir and ma, you can’t be a “fault-finder” and be a “pathfinder” at the same time, you can only be one. If you see a man making progress, appreciate them not only in your heart and closet. Don’t compete with them, commend them and connect to them.

You can’t attract in the secret what you criticized in the open. You can’t desire in the secret, what you despised in the open. You can’t connect in the secret, what you condemn in the open. Listen to me, all these, “kole wark”.

MY CONFESSION: PLEASE, IF YOU KNOW EMMANUEL AHMADU, TELL HIM I’M ALSO FOR BEING A BAD FRIEND WHO PUSHED HIM TO TAKE A LEADERSHIP POSITION AND LURED HIM TO RAISE GREAT LEADERS LIKE HIM ALL OVER THE WORLD

MY CONFESSION: PLEASE, IF YOU KNOW EMMANUEL AHMADU, TELL HIM I’M SORRY FOR BEING A BAD FRIEND WHO PUSHED HIM TO TAKE A LEADERSHIP POSITION AND LURED HIM TO RAISE GREAT LEADERS LIKE HIM ALL OVER THE WORLD

Since I met this young man, I knew there was something special about. Though we disagreed on many things to agree on few things.

Lol, I remembered serving in Benue State, Makurdi when I told him the Editorial and Publishing Community Development Service (C.D.S) needs our expertise and dexterity.

I convinced him to join me as we made plans to join the C.D.S. We told the zonal inspector that we desire to change our C.D.S and we gave our reasons.

We also met the coordinator and he told us he would put us on probation since we were not members of the Orientation Broadcasting Service (O.B.S) and he can’t attest to our skills as a prospective Journalists.

We were there and he asked us what can we offer, Emmanuel said he could fix the graphic design issues for the magazine of the batch A that has been delayed and I said I could help on the editing and the lay out.

In one week, Emmanuel came up with a proposed cover design for the magazine and the coordinator was dazed. This warranted us to become members of the editorial board for NYSC, Benue.

After some weeks, I told Emmanuel to contest for the post of the President of the C.D.S that he got all it takes having watched him closely. He told me that would be a big one for him since he was not a statutory member of the C.D.S from inception.

I told him I only needed his consent and if he doesn’t comply with my instructions I would set him up.

We were both at NCCF, family house in Makurdi when I started cooking up strategies to push Emmanuel to becoming the president.

I co-authored and published articles with and for Emmanuel on my online community. Asked him whether he had any vision for the CDS. He told me to give up on the task of making it possible for him to be the president, the more he said that, the more I had more convictions on how to go about it.

I got my first strategy from the awareness that Emmanuel was not on the CDS WhatsApp group page, then I wrote an article on behave of Emmanuel to show his intention to becoming the CDS President and told the members of the CDS I was posting it on the page on his behave as his campaign manager.

Some folks laughed at the intention as they said he was a stranger and can’t just come and lead them.

Emmanuel wasn’t aware at first of what I had done until he got to the CDS meeting days after and the people brought his attention to what was shared on the group page on WhatsApp.

He knew I would have done that. Some folks applauded him for the content of the article while some stood on the fact that it wasn’t possible for him to emerge as the president of the CDS.

He got back to me after the CDS and asked me why I was doing that to him, I told I haven’t seen anyone who could have been in the position better than he would have been.

He told me he wasn’t really in it and what if he loses the election. I told him “I’m not a loser” and if peradventure the opposite happens he should put all the blame on me and tell everyone I lured him into it.

I went back to my drawing board, requested for a cover design photo of him with his intention, wrote a pre-election manifesto and share it on the group page as the election day draws closer. The uproar began on the page.

Here we were on the election, gave him a draft of how his speech should be and how to attend to the circumstances at hand. I told him he should ensure he is the last person to speak because the last words before voting can influence the intention of many and he should make sure he wishes his fellow contestants well.

Voting began and Emmanuel won the election. We were both awed and rejoiced together as a brother that we are. Emmanuel took the position of leadership at the CDS with various innovations and interventions that seem unachievable but before the end of his tenure we experienced the reality of all.

Tears filled my eyes when I had the testimonies of good works Emmanuel spearheaded and the lives that was transformed during the secondary school interventions and members of the CDS who got a bearing for their lives from the words and lifestyle of Emmanuel.

I must say this, he is also a man that leverages on the supernatural. Moments at CDS meetings and secondary schools empowerment programmes, Emmanuel prays in tongues when he leads prayer during the events. He has hosted me several times for days at his lounge at his place of primary assignment just for us to share thoughts and pray together.

I’m not surprised about what he is doing now, the peak performance classes, leadership conferences, entrepreneur seminar, empowerment video skits, and graphic designs for companies. I would have been surprised if he is doing something less than this.

Emmanuel remains my brother who I will forever be proud of. Many of my books cover designs were made by him and he has told me to keep on writing the manuscripts that he is at my service any day.

I celebrate this rare gem specially today. Though, today is not his birthday bit everyday can be a day of impacts for him.

We are connected for life “EMMANUEL AHMADU INTERNATIONAL”. If you are Kaduna coonect to this grace or follow him on his online platforms for personal development, entrepreneur empowerment and peak performance strategies.
