If behind every successful men there is a woman, PRAY FOR THAT WOMAN, because every woman is very strong o, however timid or shy they may be, there is a power inside of them that is very strong and there are gifts in them that many men have subdued and suppressed out of their carelessness.

 

The reason why many ministers’ home are not okay is because, lesser attention is paid to their marriages, homes and families. It is of no use when you have a successful ministry with a failed home.
Your family is your first assignment, if you are going to bring souls to God’s Kingdom, what will happen to your wives, and children
There is favour and goodness in them (wives)
“DON’T BE ANGRY WITH GOD’S LAST BORN” was relayed after a dream I had.

Our coming together this time was moved by God, I remember, the Lord convinced me about this gathering, by giving me a revelation, a very short revelation, like a dream. In that dream my wife and I had a disagreement, and I was angry with her in that dream, and I stood up from her presence, walked away, as I was walking away, I heard someone shouting “Baba is coming!!!, repeatedly”.

My immediate interpretation was, “Our father is coming, God is coming, a higher authority is coming”, the man came, elderly man waving hands and smiling, I approached the man, greeted him and bowed, shook my hands and looked at me, but he was not happy. I could read that in his eyes that it was because of what had just happened.
In my heart, I was not at fault, you ought to know I was not at fault, I was right… then I woke up.
When I was awoke, the Lord brought that burden into my heart, the essence of taking our homes, our marriages, our wives serious. For those following me on Facebook, I wrote something on my Facebook page that same morning, I wrote “DON’T BE ANGRY WITH GOD’S LAST BORN”, IT WAS THE DREAM I HAD, because as I was waking up the Lord was giving more understanding, you are angry with the Lord’s Last Born? Is it because she’s your wife, she’s God’s last born, it was after God had created man, animals, moon and the star, then He created her. It gave me strong understanding, why we men ought to take our homes serious. Majority of God’s ministers are so busy with the ministry, and they are taking little recognition of the spiritual importance of their homes, the homes of many ministers of God has crumbled but their ministry is still standing. But I’m wondering if God is going to be happy. Some, their ministry is standing, souls are getting saved, but they have not put their homes, marriage and families in order.

One of the major reasons we gather together (every one of us that are married) is to make sure that we are able to pray, gather and commit the case of our wives, homes and marriage in God’s hand. So, that is the reason we are inviting all married in the ministry to let us come together like this, we are trusting the Holy Spirit to teach us what we shall do, and speak to us about making our homes healthy so that our ministry can be fruitful.

We have a lot of ministers’ of God’s homes that are not okay, because much attention is paid to ministry while lesser attention is paid to their marriages, homes and family.
More attention is paid to our congregation, lesser attention is paid to our children, but that is not God’s will, that’s not God’s plan, so we are gathering in this meeting to pray, it worth it.

What God showed me, it means ministers of God must take care of their homes, marriages, and fight the devil to make their marriages healthy.
There is nothing good in being successful in ministry and be a major failure in your home and marriage. There is nothing good living one’s life like Eli, Eli was practically living inside the temple, living and sleeping with the ark of God, even when the ark was taken away to the battle ground, bible says his heart was with the ark, not even in his children that followed the ark. He was so engulfed in the ministry of God and neglected the spiritual temperature of his home. When God said he was disappointed about Eli, it was not about the temple or ark, it was about his children, bible says the children made the people to hate offering. Our lives will not be like Eli’s life in the name of Jesus.

And some, it is their career that has taken their attentions away from their wives, marriage, children. Your family is your first assignment, what will happen to your wives, and children. We are gathering to talk and pray about God and His purpose for our lives, God and His purpose for our wives, God and His purpose for our Homes, God and His purpose for our Children.

Do you know in most cases, it is women that pray for their children, pray for their homes, family, husband, they carry huge burden while the man is so busy with the ministry and business.
Most times, the impression is “I’m working hard so that I can bring money home as long as I load the house with food stuff, we are okay.

It is the women that will wake up in middle of the night and begins to pray (picking the children one by one to pray for them)”, even when men are prayerful and they wake to pray in the middle of the night, #most (emphasis) men will pray for the church they are pastoring (their ministry) first, the outreach ahead of them. It is the prayer for the church, oh! My church is not growing, this deacon is troubling me, and those who are into businesses, they pray for their bank accounts flashing red. But most women, when they wake up in the middle of the night, it is the burden of their homes.

Also, if behind every successful men there is a woman, PRAY FOR THAT WOMAN, because every woman is very strong o, however timid or shy they may be, there is a power inside of them that is very strong and there are gift in them that many men, out of carelessness, they have subdued and suppressed.
Prov. 31:10, he who finds a wife, finds a good thing and obtained favor from God. There is favor and goodness in them.

When I was nagging “my wife did not understand my calling, she did not understand my vision”, the Lord asked me a question one day, DID YOU PRAY FOR HER TO UNDERSTAND?
We’ve been holding many programs, especially this year, but when have we been so burdened to hold programs for our wives? When it is men, naturally we think about THE GARDEN (work, vision). God is calling our attention to try and balance it. It is of no use when you have a successful ministry with a failed home.

You carry anointing, your children are not benefiting from it, it is outsiders that are benefiting from it, It is of no use. It is of no use when you are preaching in the church or ministry and your children are smearing at you, saying “what is he saying?”.

In this gathering, we are not going to be putting search lights about our wife, ‘my wife nags, she complains’, NO! Talk about yourself. We want to get back home, so that they will not say we have gone to gossip about them at the ROUNDTABLE CONFERENCE.

We want to say to them that we went to pray for them at the ROUNDTABLE CONFERENCE.
We want to learn about the glorious wives (golden fish) in our houses, we want to learn from God on how to bring the gold out of them.
