Apostle Suleman to Christians: Shun critics, appreciate pastors

Published

on

Pastors are sent to watch over the souls of their flocks and to teach them on how to follow Christ.
Many a times, people forget that pastors are humans just like the rest of their fellows. Although they are held in higher standard, like humans that they are, they feel discouraged at times when through pointless criticisms they are pushed to think they are not doing enough even when they are doing more than they should.
Servant of God and senior pastor at Omega Fire Ministries (OFM), Apostle (Prof.) Johnson Suleman, lectured in one of his recent services how men of God expend their time and energy and nearly become worn out working for God yet no one seems to see them working and no one appreciates all they do. The servant of God therefore requests of Christians to let men of God know how much they care for and appreciate them.
Apostle Suleman teaches that “the greatest gift one can give to his/her pastor is to lift him/her up by publicly appreciating his/ her work and in prayer.
“Most of you are in the social media,” he begun; “when you get home after the service, post a message on the social media; Facebook, Instagram, Whatsapp, Twitter, to appreciate men of God all over the world for the wonderful work they are doing for God. Encourage pastors all over the world. Don’t put any pastor’s name; just post the message to appreciate all of them.  In the message, tell them, ‘no matter the criticisms, there are people that love you. We are part of those people that love you’. Tell them that ‘we love you; nothing, nobody can change our minds’. Nigerian pastors, African pastors, pastors all over the world, tell them ‘we love you’. Tell them ‘we don’t care what enemies are doing, we love you, we appreciate you’.
Post the message, send the message. Flood the internet with the message. Post and tell your friends to repost; use these last days of September to appreciate pastors all over the world. Tell them ‘be encouraged, don’t be discouraged, keep moving on’.”
According to the ‘Oracle of God’, God has blessed the world with pastors after His own heart; therefore they should be prayed for to serve with joy and not burden.
“Pastors have difficult jobs. They must serve the church family and their own family. It really takes a special breed to balance the two. Yet they are attacked without reason. It is a must to appreciate your pastor; give him joy and you will receive joy,” concludes the servant of God.

Chemstar Manufacturing company boss, Apostle Aderemi Emmanuel Awode, owner of Finecoat and Shield Paints, had his 55th birthday soiree last weekend, it was indeed an impressive gathering as friends, family and associate from all walks of life teemed to celebrate a manufacturing giant, a business tycoon, philanthropist par excellence and an icon of hope to many homes.

The most cherished asset of Remi Awode is not his head full of knowledge but his heart full of love, ears open to listen, and hands willing to help, reason many of his staff, friends and associates eulogized his good virtues at the birthday shindig. Many of those that graced the event took the pleasant achiever on memory lane on how he touched their lives in several ways; he’s no doubt, a good man who brings out the good in other people.

For those that feel that being kind hearted to people got them nothing but rejection and hurt, the story of Aderemi Awode is something the young ones should emulate, despite being hurt a few times, he has never allowed such instances to redefine who he truly is. He’s a lover of people whose generosity amazingly knows no colour, creed or religion. Unarguably, this act is one of the factors that led to the success story of Finecoat Paint today.

He’s a strong believer of an aphorism that, “if you are a thoughtful person who does nice things, don’t stop just because the people failed to see the goodness inside you, it’s their ejection or lack of response that is the problem, not yours. Don’t change yourself, they need to change, they need to work on themselves, keep being the wonderful you”.

The strong unapologetic honest and God fearing Awode is one of most kind-hearted people in the world, reason he doled out several millions to empower some members of Cherubim and Seraphim Movement, Divine Blessing Cathedral located at Alagbado area of Lagos where he’s a founding member. Apostle Awode does not only see it as his duty to give out of his abundance, he shares even his tank indicates reserve.

At 55, according to him, is to live his life full of praises of God who has immensely blessed and favoured him. The event was graced by Mr. Toyin Haastrup, Engr. Tunde Akintona, Mr & Mrs. Sam Ajagu, Members of the Galilee Land Development Committee of the C$S Movement Church led by Dr. Bisi Adedire, Mrs. Odeyinka, Founder Fluorescent Group of Schools, Alh.

Apostle Suleman’s teachings: Positive attitudes that turn life around

Published

on

Destiny is influenced by certain qualities. These qualities do alter fates. One needs to be careful about these things because what a man will be in life depends on him. According to the teachings of servant of God, Apostle (Prof.) Johnson Suleman, a principle is a moral rule that controls, influences, explains how a man lives and enjoys life.

There are six lessons about life given below by the firebrand cleric that have great influence on life; either they make a man happy or sad. They explain that the spiritual life also has impact. They affect a man for good or evil because, according to the man of God, they have an impact on what a man does, have done and they affect his destiny.

 

Be Conscious

You are waiting for the bridegroom. But the truth is this; the bridegroom may not come but you may go. The Bible says ‘And they went to meet Him, He didn’t come to meet them. Carefulness is activated when there is consciousness of departure. Be conscious that one day you are going to leave this world. Earlier in life, people die when they are old. But these days death doesn’t come according to age, it comes when it wants to come.

 

Focus on Help

Maximize opportunities because they may not continue. In this world, nobody owes you anything. When God gives you somebody who helps you in life, I beg of you, thank the person every day. Focus on help because it is not common.

Don’t Be Stupid

The definition of stupidity or wisdom is a functionality of abundance or lack of ore. The real definition of either wisdom or stupidity is directly proportioned to the availability of the abundance or scarcity of ore. How do you know a man who is foolish or wise? Check his ore level. This is because the ores are of the anointing of God.

 

Be A Source

When you are a source you become a voice. The reason about life is, the reason many of us cannot speak is because we have nothing to empower our voice. The reason a lot of people are incapacitated in life, vocally; the reason some people cannot exercise their rights is because they are not yet a source.

Be Positive

If you want to look at life and be sad, there many things to make you sad; even the government could make you sad. Your family, friends would make you sad. But if you choose to be happy, there are many things to make you happy. You are just seeing a new day. I like what a songwriter says; ‘every time I wake and see the breaking of the day, I say Thank You Lord.’ I’m not heartbroken, I’m not sad. You cannot make me sad. My situation cannot depress me. The trials of life cannot weigh me down. Rejoice in the Lord. You’ve got to be excited. Have a positive outlook to life. There might be no money in your pocket; it should not affect your outlook because your outlook determines your outcome. Your wife, brothers and friends may turn their backs on you; it should not affect your outlook because your outlook determines your outcome.

Seek The Anointing

Though you may have a calling. Though it is your right. Though you were trained as an accountant in school, though you read Medicine in the Medical School, whatever your calling is, you still need the Anointing to help and empower you. The Anointing is the Power and Empowerment of God. The Anointing is the Power that helps man to enjoy life cheaply. The Anointing is the Power that makes life and issues favourable. The Anointing is that aura and ambience that comes upon a person and makes him or her eat life with 25 fingers. The Anointing is that Grace upon you and you walk out of trouble triumphantly. Upon you I release the ore of God. That ore will flow in your direction. It will bring you out of problems. It will bring you out of sickness and battles.
