A MEMO TO MY CHILDREN; I CALL YOU MASTERSEEDS BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE

A MEMO TO MY CHILDREN; I CALL YOU MASTERSEEDS BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE

Dear Masterseeds,

Your father is improving daily to harness his potentials and explore more of spiritual realities not for himself alone but to create legacies for you all to benefit from. Don’t worry about your mum because she is doing the same too.

I’m making sure I minimize and mitigate struggles and challenges that may want to limit your impacts and exploits as I remain connected to men of like passion and learning from them.

You may not need to go through protocols to meet men that are influencing sectors and heralding our world with their lives in your time because they have been your father’s friends prior to your birth.

After considering your mother and I as your first mentor and role model, other men you see on the media or read about that you desire as your mentors would be quite feasible because they are your father’s company and covenant brothers.

I will be glad to introduce you to them as my seeds and they would be glad to also receive you as their own.

I’m anticipating your arrival.

Your Father,
Masterpiece David Olawade.

KEEP YOUR LANE: DEAR MENTOR BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE

KEEP YOUR LANE: DEAR MENTOR BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE

Sometime ago, Martin Luther King Jr. called Billy Graham on phone to join the CIVIL RIGHT MOVEMENT.

Billy responded “Keep your lane, My lane is souls”.

Lesson- don’t be distracted by where others are going, maintain your lane.

Remember, you can succeed on the wrong course, get an applaud and ovation from people for doing something contrary to God’s will for your life.

My generation leaves me in awe when I see some young folks join some forum, movement or ministry, follow some personalities out of excitement without direction and they end up wasting their lives yet where and who they connect themselves to can’t discern that they are in the wrong place or with the wrong person.

This our spiritual father and son, mentor and mentee relationship has made many to lead some folks out of God’s plan for their lives. Everyone is now trying to say they have someone who desires to be like them as an achievement.

Please sir, if you have the plan to train someone to be like you, you are successful leading someone out of God’s will. Lead them to get God’s plan for their lives and let them follow thus. If I may ask you, who did you follow that you have now become?

If Billy Graham didn’t understand this fact, may be Martin Luther Jr. would have been his mentor or he would have been known as a human right activist instead of an evangelist. Imagine the havoc we would have celebrated to his account for being an activist and what would have happened to the souls attached to his live.

A young folk met me after a meeting sometimes ago and said he desired to be like me, I responded by saying, “that is your first step to failure and missing it in destiny”. I can only guide him and counsel him to be who God has made him and be all that God had proposed for him.

Hear me, if the people that surrounds you are becoming exactly like you, I’m glad to let you know that you have become a cloning machine and your products “clones” are about to miss out of God’s plan.

Young man, I know you love to follow some men to get a bearing for your life, I also follow some men for direction but I had to get the coordinates for my life first before I desire they lead me to get a bearing for my life.

Before you desire you meet a man to mentor you, first meet yourself and know yourself. When Elisha made his request known to Elijah, he didn’t say “that I may be like you my father”. Beyond the carrying of the bag, Elisha desired to carry double portion of the anointing for his own assignment.

Why did he request for double portion? He knew his assignment was different, I could have requested for same portion if he wanted to be like Elijah and when God instructed Elijah to anoint Elisha and Jehu, God didn’t say he should anoint them to be like him (Elijah), God spoke about their respective assignment. Please, where did we get the idea of anointing people to be like us in ministry?

My covenant brother, Awe Ayodele would say, “I’m not a prototype of any man, I’m Awe Ayo, we follow men to be who God has called us to be”.

This generation of young folks that wants to be all ministers of God at the same time. Lol, “Weldone sir, weldone ma”.

This is not a call to despise the blessedness of mentorship but to strike a balance to how it should be.

Dear mentor, stop teaching your followers your performance, teach them the rehearsals of how to perform their own action and lead them to their own stage. If you feel your are not capable to handle their own kind of rehearsals please feel free to hand them over to someone else or recommend another person for them.

Let me stop here.

THE PRICE OF SPIRITUAL POWER: BURDEN FOR MANTLE BY IYKE ORIAKU

THE PRICE OF SPIRITUAL POWER: BURDEN FOR MANTLE BY IYKE ORIAKU



NOW THAT BOTH GENUINE AND FAKE PREACHERS ARE LOOKING FOR THE CREDIBILITY OF OLDER GENUINE MEN OF GOD, THIS IS THE MOST CONTROVERSIAL POST I HAVE READ CONCERNING SPIRITUAL FATHERHOOD!

Don’t you know that there were people that lived with Archbishop Benson Idahosa of blessed memory, yet, they did not catch anything from him?…

There are people who have read all the books of Bishop David Oyedepo and even worked with him who have no trace of the life of the supernatural…

Thank God for followership…

But the burden beneath the followership is what provokes God to release His mantle upon men …

There is no great man of God anywhere that has any mantle to give you …

Because the grace they carry is not their own …

The Owner of the grace they carry is waiting for your burden to match His Burden…

Mantles don’t fall from heaven…

Every man is carrying his mantle around …

But God is depending on your burden for Him to produce your mantle for you …

All it takes is time, it will break out…

Elisha was producing his own mantle when he was following Elijah …

People were mocking him…

But the mantle in him was growing…

And when the time came, the mantle Began to speak…

Sir, don’t be following great men of God, thinking you will catch their mantle…

They don’t have mantle for you…

Because the Bible said that no one can receive anything unless it is given from heaven …

If It was by followership, Why didn’t Gehazi catch the mantle of Elisha…

Gehazi used Elisha as his Facebook profile picture…

Everyday, online, he was calling Elisha his spiritual father…

At the backdrop on his pulpit was the picture of Elisha…

He was sowing seed into Elisha’s ministry, yet, his heart was far from the Man that made Elisha…

No wonder all he was able to reap was the wind…

Sir, if you don’t want to follow God, don’t waste time following great men…

It will not pay you…

If all you want is to enjoy the credibility of a genuine man of God and be using their name to be defrauding people, then, I am sure, you are ready …

Leprosy is coming…

Men who have not died on the Cross are following great men, here and there…

Competing with their rivals with their spiritual fatherhood…

Listen to me, sir, don’t be distracted by this madness of ‘my spiritual father’ going on everywhere now…

Go and look for God…

When you find Him, He will lead you to a spiritual father that will guide you…

It is an error to your destiny and ministry, for you to leave God and be looking for men so that doors will be opened for you when you mention their names….

I have searched my bible, it is only at the mention of the Name of Jesus, that every knee must bow…

If you have made peace with that Name, sir, it will work for you…

I believe in spiritual fatherhood because I know what it adds to your journey…

But don’t let a man take the place God should take….

The man you are looking for has sought God and found him …

When he was at your age, he was in every praying camp, mountain, and night vigil, growing the mantle he was carrying…

Now, you think you will just read his books or bring him to your pulpit and catch His irit….

Its not true…

You can take picture with him and people will allow you to preach in their churches…

But there is something about that man you have not caught yet…

Because the bible said “…no man taketh this honour unto himself…”

What made him is still too far from you!

You are still a stranger to His decree of burden…

There is still a price to pay sir, to catch a burden from God…

Then, you will start working in double portion of his grace…

What separated Elisha from the other sons of the prophets was his burden for God …

It was his burden for God that gave him his mandate and his mandate produced the mantle …

Man of God, your mantle is waiting for you to identify your mandate …

If you don’t have a mandate, forget about mantle…

This why God told us in Jeremiah to call on Him, that he will show us great and mighty things about ourselves we know not… (33:3)

Stop looking for mantle when you have no mandate…

Your mandate is born out of your burden for God… And your burden is your ministry….

Many people have branches of their churches, with huge crowd…

But they have no ministry yet…

No definite assignment…

Watch out, soon, they will lose those their churches to those with ministries (assignments)….

Stop looking for money to build cathedral..

Go and cry to God for a fresh burden, in case you have lost yours…

If not, you and your family alone will remain in that cathedral soon…

Your spiritual father must not be a television evangelist…

He must not be among the famous preachers we have in our time…

Don’t join those who are rushing to men of God with 200 cars in their compound to be their spiritual fathers…

You don’t choose your father…

God chose him for you…

And He is depending on what you are carrying inside, to choose a spiritual father for you.

Many people are rushing to Canaan land, to submit to Papa Oyedepo because they saw 50,000 capacity church…

It is very funny, how we are moved by sights and size…

Thank God for the grace of God upon papa Oyedepo….

But I have seen men of God that have been paying tithes in his church for close to 20 years now, to contact his grace, but they still don’t have up to 20 committed members in their Churches…

Sir, you don’t chose your father…

Your burden chooses your father for you..

Your spiritual father God wants for you might not have up to 30 members in his church, but yet he will father you to grow an international ministry…

It is our vain spirits that is taking us to men who are controlling crowd to father us….

Long ago, some of us have purged ourselves from this new age madness that is robbing young ministers of their originality in Christ….

Sir, go inside the house and lock yourself…

Don’t go with any christian book….

Don’t go with any audio message

Enter their with your bible …

Forget food ….

Forget sleep….

And be determined not to open that door until God gives you a fresh burden that will separate you in a time like this…

You need it sir…

It is too noisy being in the crowd …

Oh! But when you will catch that burden, it will place a seal of distinction on your ministry…

And this generation will know that you have found God…

Forget this competition going on everywhere in ministry…

I am saying there must be something more than this…

May another man not take your place in this end time agenda of God …

Let an usual hunger for prayer hit you where you are now…

In Jesus Mighty Name….

Let us pray!

 MY FATHER’S PRAYER BY UDOH CHRISTOPHER

My dearly beloved daddy

I saw you last night

You knelt down by your bed

With eyes closed, uttering voiceless sounds

Although your lips were in motion

But your speeches were unheard



I thought you were drunk

But I know it’s far from you

I wondered if you had gone mad

But this morning you spoke soberly

I was amazed if you were confused

But your counsels today were so wise



Suddenly my ears heard my name

Your mouth making request for me

You never stopped outlining my needs

The physical ones I know about

And the ones that seem to be spiritual

My spirit pricked me to hear you in this words.



Lord God in heaven

Perfect the salvation of my son

As you promised, baptize him with the Holy Ghost

May your spirit overwhelm him as in the Act of Apostles

Grant him the Spirit of Grace and Supplication

Open his eyes to see the greatness of your power

And the great inheritance and glory kept for him.



My holy father

As you did to your Son, Jesus

Fill my son with grace and truth

May your love be perfected in him

So the world will see the beauty of your majesty

And let his righteousness shine like the sun for all.



Like a boat in a sea he is

He is as a sheep in the midst of wolves

Make him as wise as the serpent and gentle as dove

Let his oil not run dry and light not go off

So his salvation will not fail

Until he sees your glorious land.



My father, as he looks up

I cried seeing you in tears

Beclouded with a compassionate heart

With your soft tender feelings

Like a woman in the cloth of a man

Even with many words uttered by the Spirit

I know your voice reaches the heavens.



I rushed at ones to my room

Cried aloud in same manner on my kneels

Words were scarce in my mouth

With groaning in my heart

Out of deep passion

I prayed for my father

In same words he prayed for me.
