Apostle Suleman’s Teachings: Why A God’s Minister Must Not Quit

Published

Apostle Johnson Suleman

 

The trend is becoming commonplace that Gospel preachers do consider quitting their ministries at the earliest of time. This is because they feel they have worked enough but raising a God’s ministry is physically tiring. They have reached a point of exhaustion. But one servant of God who is respected for his untiring ability at calling souls to the way of God, Apostle Johnson Suleman, says no man who has a mission at hand must quit; “a strong work ethic is necessary to do the work of God,” he noted in one of his mid-July apostolic teachings.

 

Likening doing the work of God to the biblical Moses, who continued moving on in the wilderness while his followers continually murmured against him and His God, Apostle Suleman who is the General Overseer of the Omega Fire Ministries (OFM) worldwide, says “preachers must have thick skin, because if we are not careful we can be overwhelmed by the spirit of laziness through a complaining crowd.”

 

“Imagine you prepared a sermon for a crowd, prayed all week for that Sunday and you came to church to see four people in attendance. Imagine your children not worshipping with you, or your wife preferring to go to a more standardized church as it were because things are not well with you and she can’t bear the ridicule anymore. You opened a church and every service day, you see people passing your church to other churches. You preach your heart out; they even pass by and pity you; some shake their head and even mock you. That is part of the price for greatness,” counsels the servant of God.

 

Apostle Suleman warns that God’s ministers must never forget that every Christian is in spiritual warfare and leaders are especially susceptible to the attack of the wicked one. The ministry is filled with many battles and many blessings, but the only possible way to avoid struggle is to give up. If the devil can sideline a preacher, he will often destroy the ranks that follow.

 

The ‘Restoration Apostle’ who cited as an example his earlier days as a preacher with just five members in Agbor, Delta State, Nigeria, in a primary school with only bulb, beseeched pastors still struggling to raise a ministry to persevere because “if you have not suffered you cannot be settled. If you have not laboured, you cannot be honoured.”

 

He said in his sermon that only a determined leader finishes a lifetime of ministry well, as hazards encountered by Christian leaders, especially in Africa, are enormous, adding that “in all the challenges, God is still saying that you are His beloved son; so it is that rare leader that runs faithfully to the end.”

Rivers Crisis: Hon. Enemi George Blows Hot, Calls Governor Fubara a Small Man

Hon. Enemi Alabo George, a member of the Rivers State House of Assembly, did not mince his words when he called out Governor Sim Fubara for his reckless and violent actions. He boldly stated, “I dare you today, Sim Fubara.

 

”You may have had the guts to break the gates of the Rivers State House of Assembly quarters and force your way in, but let me tell you, you are nothing but a small man. Your threats and harassment, shooting and inducing fear into the wives and children of Assembly members are nothing but cowardly acts.”

George went on to remind Fubara of his past misdeeds, saying, “You burnt the hallowed chambers of the House of Assembly, attacked the residence of the Speaker of the Rivers State House of Assembly, and even demolished the Rivers State House of Assembly Complex. Despite all this, we did not answer you, we thought it was just the madness of a minute. But know this, you can never break me.”

He further emphasized, “I have respected our friendship for a long time, but now, I refuse to hold back any longer. You know where I live, you know my apartment, why didn’t you come? I worked hard for you to become Governor, I even mobilized professionals from all works and corners of life to support you. But now, I will never bow to baal. You are nothing but a small man, and I will not be intimidated by you.”

The Nigerian Senate has taken a significant step towards ensuring a safer and healthier society by passing a bill to amend the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency NDLEA Act. The amendment includes the imposition of capital punishment by death for those involved in drug-related crimes in Nigeria. The aim of this move is to create a drug-free environment in Nigeria and to address the issue of drug peddling among the country’s youth, which has become a major concern.

The Senate believes that this amendment will provide the necessary legal backing for NDLEA to carry out its duties effectively and also enable the prosecution of those found guilty of drug-related offences. This will go a long way in curbing the drug trafficking menace that has been a source of worry to the government and citizens alike.

BREAKING: Reps Tells CBN to Suspend Cybercrime Levy Collection

On Thursday, May 9th, the House of Representatives made a commendable move by ordering the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to suspend the enforcement of the cybercrime levy introduced by the apex bank. This decision was made to ensure that the principles outlined in section 44(2a) of the Cybercrime Act are adhered to, and that Nigerians are not confused or misled in any way by the circular issued by the CBN.

The House of Representatives expressed their concern about the potential misunderstanding that could arise from the circular issued by the CBN, and urged the bank to retract the previous circular promptly and release a new one that aligns with the provisions of the Act.

This action was taken in response to a pressing issue raised by Minority Leader Kingsley Chinda (PDP, Rivers) on behalf of all members. The House’s decision shows their commitment to promoting fairness, transparency, and accountability in Nigeria’s financial sector.
