‘5 reasons why Pastor Adeboye won’t make heaven’ – Daddy Freeze

News

Backing up his claims with Bible passages, Daddy Freeze gave his reason in his latest Youtube video titled: ‘Addressing Adeboye’s False Claim That You Won’t Make Heaven if you don’t pay tithe.’

Nigerian OAP and ‘Free the sheeple’ movement leader, Daddy Freeze, who is also a known critic of the Redeemed Christian Church of God General Overseer, Pastor Adeboye, in a new Youtube video listed 5 reasons why the cleric won’t make heaven.

Backing up his claims with Bible passages, Daddy Freeze gave his reason in his latest Youtube video titled: ‘Addressing Adeboye’s False Claim That You Won’t Make Heaven if you don’t pay tithe.’

Here are the reasons Daddy Freeze listed, below;

1. Leading children astray —

Freeze uses Luke 17:1 -3 as his Biblical reason for why the preacher will not make heaven. It says, “Jesus said to his disciples: “Things that cause people to stumble are bound to come, but woe to anyone through whom they come. It would be better for them to be thrown into the sea with a millstone tied around their neck than to cause one of these little ones to stumble. So, watch yourselves.” He adds, “Enoch watch yourself.”

2. Turning Stone to bread —

This time, the controversial figure goes to Matthew 4:3 which says, The tempter came to him and said, “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.”

In his words, “They read their Bible like textbooks but they say I’m the one that reads Bible like text… I read the Bible spiritually and I’ll explain to you.”

After reading the verse, Freeze says, “The stones he was talking about are human beings, not stones. Many times in the Bible stones were actually human beings.

He backs this with several verses adding, “Turning stones to bread is turning human beings to money. If you do this, you can not make Heaven. Stop turning stones to bread. Jesus rejected the temptation, why are Nigerian G. Os falling for this temptation of the devil.”

3. Subjecting people to the curse of the law

Freeze says the third reason is that “he is subjecting people to the curse of the law by telling them to pay tithe. There is not space for tithing in the grace.”

He continues: “Some people will now come and tell you that tithing was before the law. Oh yes, it was before the law but it was also before the promise and everything before the promise is of no consequence to Christianity.

“Our promise with father Abraham started in Genesis 17. In Genesis 16, Abraham had Ishmael. In Genesis 17, when he was 99, Abraham was promised of Issac and his name was changed from Abram to Abraham.

“So, whatever Abraham did as Abram in Genesis 14, when he gave tithe to Melchizedek is of no consequence to Christianity…”

4. He is a teacher of the law

According to Freeze, Mathew 23:13 and verse 15 proves that anyone who teaches the law is not going to heaven.

5. He disobeys Jesus

In Freeze’s words, “He disobeys Jesus and our first pastors and he makes us obey Malachi. Malachi is not a Christian verse. how dare you

Married to Their Smartphones (Oh, and to Each Other, Too) – Godinterest

God

Neither Joe or Willy are having an affair. But one of them has found a new object of affection, which has become a new companion and inspires a surprising amount of jealousy among her spouse – its the new relationship buster: the smartphone. “It helps me wake up,” she said.

“Experts say that smartphone use is meddling in our marriages in ways that are sometimes benign, and often forcing couples to address an ever more important question: At what point are we choosing to spend more time with our smartphones than with our spouses? (Christian Marriages, Too)”

Slowly, almost imperceptibly, the warmth and intimacy of marriages are ebbing away with a culture of dings, beeps and buzzes as most people manage everything from bank accounts to fantasy football teams on mobile phone devices.

It’s almost at pandemic levels now. Married or not, most of us sleep with our phones right next to us, pocket them as we go from place to place and think nothing of using them whether our partners are talking or not.

“Therapists say that when a marriage hits a rocky patch, they’ve seen one or both partners hide behind their phones.”

If you’re still reading this article then we can safely assume you know what we’re talking about. The US divorce rate hovers at 40 per cent, but that’s not the whole story. Many sound relationships are on life support. According to a survey by the National Opinion Research Centre.

You’d think this problem would exist only outside the church, wrong.

Pope Francis says most marriages today are ‘invalid’ because couples don’t go into them with the right intentions. This is a disaster for the Church much less society as a whole.

“When a Christian marriage unravels, many questions rise to the surface.”

It’s a shame that most of our relationships are in shambles. However, its time to put down the Smartphone and save your marriage. But how?

1. The first year of marriage is hard…really hard.

In an increasingly individualistic, “me” culture, weddings create a potentially dangerous situation for a newlywed Christian couple. If you are empty, broken, or insecure, and you believe a spouse is the silver bullet to your a problems…buckle up. The marriage will be bumpy-ride.

Don’t buy the wedding day lie. Marriage is not about you. Take this as a warning…the first year of marriage is difficult and you will never be able to enjoy the beauty of marriage if your spouse’s job is to complete you.

In Saudi Arabia, a newlywed husband filied for divorce after his wife stopped his attempts at consummation to reply to wedding messages. Whiles this is simply over the top. Yes, it can be partially about not texting on your wedding night!

We know marriage is hard, but walking away from it will have a lasting impact. Marry a Christian, yes. But maybe go even further and marry somebody with similar passions and dreams.

2. Prioritize Your Partner Over Your Phone

“Marital bliss is fictional, but marital happiness can be a reality.”

This is an obvious point, but it’s still one that most people tend to disregard. Sex is a gift from God. So explore It. Make no mistake…God created sex. But through the years, God’s people allowed Satan to steal this gift. Without a fight.

God created sex. If your married, here’s a challenge. Explore sex. Explore the fullness of it and pray for sexual intimacy with your spouse.

3. There is more than one person out there for you.

Marriage is a huge choice, and so is divorce. Soul mates are made…not born. We are not sure where this idea of a soul mate originated, but it is false. Maintaining a healthy relationship is more about commitment than perfection. Marriages are complex – they’re filled with compromise, balancing expectations and maintaining a foundation built on trust. A successful marriage is one where you serve your spouse and both of you serve God. You see the closer you get to God the closer you will be to each other.

“The success of marriage comes not in finding the “right” person, but in the ability of both partners to adjust to the real person they inevitably realize they married ” – (John Fischer).

To God be the glory forever. Amen!

So You Think You’ve Married the Wrong Person? – GodInterest

5-Truths-about-Gods-Design-for-Sex-in-Marriage-1.jpg

When I saw Roger’s Facebook profile photo, my first reaction, if I’m honest, was that he wasn’t good-looking enough for me. Yet when he sent a message saying I was the most beautiful woman he’d ever seen, I gave into his invitation for dinner, she says in regret.

“According to a new survey of more than 1,600 divorcees, 49 percent admitted they were worried on their wedding day their relationship would break down, and two-thirds considered leaving their spouse-to-be at the altar.”

“A sixth said they hoped their partner would change after the wedding, while others said they got married in the hope that it would “all work out” in the end.”

Lord, I’m sorry! I married the wrong man. Please forgive me, she cries out in agonizing prayer. 

No couple should expect bliss every day and most couples know that perfection is not on the cards. Nevertheless, there are couples who display such deep-seated incompatibility, such heightened rage and disappointment, that most people will conclude that something else is at play beyond the normal scratchiness: they appear to have married the wrong person.

How do such errors happen, in our enlightened, knowledge-rich times? To avoid becoming a “statistic,” try to internalize these 7 insights.

#1. You picked the wrong person because you expect him/her to change after you’re married.

Many Christians may assume that non-believers are more likely to marry the wrong person because they lack God’s guidance in finding their one true love. But not so fast. Unfortunately, the number of Christians divorcing is no lower than that of non-believers.

“Singles today (and most married couples too) are searching for super-spouses that simply don’t exist.”

Movie star Mickey Rooney said, “Marriage is like batting in baseball; when the right one comes along, you don’t want to let it go by.” It sounds good, until you realize that Mickey was married eight times. He must have had a lot of “good pitches” to swing at!

Mickey Rooney has what might be called the “needle in a haystack” view of picking a mate.

But you won’t find a “wrong needle” clause in the Bible that gives you an “out” if you conclude that your spouse isn’t right for you. Instead you’ll find in Malachi 2:15, “Do not break faith with the wife of your youth.”

Surprising to many, the Bible never tells us to find the one God has chosen.  It tells us how to live with the person we have chosen. It’s easy to take our thoughts to the extreme when we’re so unhappy. But lets not forget that God says in the Bible says, “Come, let us reason together” (Isaiah 1:18). You didn’t marry a mind reader.  Don’t fault him or her for that.

#2. You picked the wrong person because you focus more on chemistry than on character.

Many societies portray marriage as a temporary arrangement that can be adapted or forsaken at will.  When first looking out for a partner, the requirements we come up with are coloured by a beautiful non-specific sentimental vagueness. All of us are crazy in very particular ways. All too many people say their vows without a real commitment to their spouse or to God.

Marriage is not primarily about finding the right spouse. It’s about being the right person. In his classic work, The Art of Loving, Erich Fromm declares, “To love somebody is not just a strong feeling—it is a decision, it is a judgment, it is a promise.

#3. You choose the wrong person because you do not share common life goals and priorities.

Biblically, a Christian should be looking to marry another believer who shares a similar commitment to following the Lord Jesus. Marriage to an unbeliever should be avoided (2 Corinthians 6:14). So, if a Christian marries a non-Christian, he or she may have indeed married the wrong person.

#4. You choose the wrong person because you got intimately involved too quickly.

“Do you know unmarried couples who attend church, have consensual sex, and may even live together? According to a recent study by the Barna Group,”

The Bible is filled with lots of info about sex, and believe it or not, God thinks it’s a great idea! And why shouldn’t He, He invented it and declared it to be “good.”

Many Christian couples also justify cohabitation with the rationalization that they are going to get married eventually. However, the Bible promotes complete abstinence before marriage. Sex between a husband and his wife is the only form of sexual relations of which God approves (Hebrews 13:4). Sex within marriage is pleasurable, and God designed it that way. God wants men and women to enjoy sexual activity within the confines of marriage.

If you believe Christ died on a cross for your sins and you are trusting in Christ alone for your salvation, Christ commands you to pick up your cross and follow him (Matt. 16:24). Sex outside of marriage is a sin, no matter how a person tries to interpret Scripture otherwise, and every Christian is called to obey God in this aspect of life. Jesus said.

Also consider this, if the Bible’s message on sex before marriage was obeyed, there would be far fewer sexually transmitted diseases, far fewer abortions, far fewer unwed mothers and unwanted pregnancies, and far fewer children growing up without both parents in their lives.

#5. You picked the wrong person because you didn’t put everything on the table.

Let’s start off with the big one.  TRUST!  When a spouse is persistently and relentlessly lying about dim-witted things, it causes worry and doubts to set up camp. The journey begins like this. A young man or woman identifies the person he or she wants to marry and begins the business of serious courtship. Time and money are no object. They have a worthy goal and are motivated, even if that means telling lies in the process.

“You look as beautiful today as the day I met you.” “Of course you don’t look fat in that.” “I’m not angry.” “I wasn’t looking at her, I was just noticing her boots.”

Legally, all you need for a wedding is a visit to the county clerk’s office, and whatever else your local government requires. Most weddings these days skip the garter toss; many skip the bridesmaids and groomsmen, and some even skip the flowers. But what matters most is that you tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

“If you tell the truth, it becomes part of your past, however, if you tell a lie, it becomes part of your future”. ~ Author Unknown”

Wow does that quote nails it, or what??!!

#6. You picked the wrong person because you use the relationship to escape from personal problems and unhappiness.

In many places in the world, a fantasy is promoted that marriage should meet all our needs—the emphasis being on meeting one’s own needs, not the needs of one’s spouse. However, people that are unhappy when single and expect marriage to fulfil their lives are greatly disappointed as their level of contentment will drop even lower when married. Unrealistic expectations are those demands you make of your spouse of which he or she is incapable of providing.

“When you’re single, you experience a range of contentment from low to high. However, when your married, that range becomes even wider in both directions. Greater contentment—or discontentment.”

God wants to destroy you, not the physical you, but the selfish you. Jesus taught us that if we don’t die to our selfish nature, we will never be able to experience all the blessings that God wants to bestow on us. Well, if there was ever an institution designed to kill the selfish you, it’s marriage. In fact, it is virtually impossible to succeed at marriage if you don’t learn how to let the selfish part of you die.

#7. You picked the wrong person because you did not consult with God

“I don’t think I can do any better. He or she said, It may sound cliché, but if you don’t respect and love yourself, it will be difficult to respect and love another person.”

Surely we aren’t destined to fail.  So maybe we have misunderstood the will of God. I know that sounds simplistic. Many people claim that is the problem with their marriage.  If they could go back and press rewind, if they knew back then what they know now, they would have made different decisions. But remember that God promises us that if we ask, He will give. And while asking, request that the Holy Spirit guide you as your Wonderful Counselor (Isaiah 9:6).

How can a person prevent getting married to the wrong person?

The truth is, a successful marriage is not the result of marrying the “right” person, feeling the “right”emotions, thinking the “right” thoughts, or even praying the “right” prayers,

Instead, keep your eyes wide open before marriage, half shut afterwards,” is good advice (Poor Richard’s Almanac, June 1738), but even more helpful is to seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness (Matthew 6:33).

The bible made us to understand that Jesus is the Lion of the tribe of Judah (Revelation 5:5). In Hebrews 2:11, the bible says that Jesus was not ashamed to call us brethren. Moreover, in Romans 8:17, the bible calls us heirs of God and joint-heirs with Jesus. This affirms that we are truly Jesus’ brethren. Since Jesus is the Lion of the tribe of Judah, as His brethren we are of the tribe of Judah. Now, Judah is praise so any time we engage in the lifestyle of praise, we are only exhibiting our nature.

So, if you are not praising God then you are denying your identity. Are you ashamed of who you are? If no then you must live a praiseful life. Until you live a praiseful life, you don’t know who you are yet and if you don’t know who you are you will miss out of the blessings ordained for you. May you not miss your blessings in Jesus name. Every descendant of Judah must be praiseful and until you are praiseful you can’t attract God. As you chose to praise God today, may you attract God. May you enjoy every blessing that is ordained for praiseful people in Jesus name. Remain blessed forever more.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT:

Until you live a praiseful life you can’t attract God.

PRAYER: Father, may I not lose my identity in You. Give me the grace to live a fulfilled life in Jesus name.

TEXT: Psalms 124:1-8

Gratitude always takes people above the ground but ingratitude often take people below the ground (which is the grave). If you are not grateful you will be grounded. You are not better than the people that have been grounded so give God praise. Hope you know some of your age mates are living under the bridge hopeless and helpless. A lot more are insane. Many more are dead but you are alive to the glory of God. Only fools don’t see reasons to praise God. The bible says: “It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not” (Lamentation 3:22). Every man is consumable if not for the mercies of the Lord. It is the desire of the devil for you to be long dead but God’s mercies kept you. Remember the bible says: “The thief (devil) cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy” (John 10:10). That has always been the mission of the devil against your life but God won’t let him have his way rather the Spirit of God (The Power of God) is always raising His standard against the devil for your sake and the voice of God is always saying; “Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm (Psalms 105:15). Hallelujah!!! See how much the mercy of God is fighting for you because God loves you.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT: Gratitude takes people above the ground but ingratitude takes people below the ground.

PRAYER: Father, thank You for all You have done for me and my entire family. May Your mercies keep defending us so we won’t be grounded in Jesus name.

TEXT: Joel 1:12, Isaiah 12:1-6

We live in a world of endless desires. We want the best cars to drive, best houses to live in, best jobs and best everything. Unfortunately, not many people know the right and easiest way to getting the best out of life. Praise is the ladder to greatness. Your many years of labour cannot give you what a day of praiseful life can give you. Nothing greases life like praise. Just like when a car engine lacks grease, it begins to crack noise and struggles in motion so also will any life which is void of praise struggle endlessly and you know what? If you allow that engine to continue like that, it will definitely crash. Praise is the antidote to the crashing of the engine of man’s destiny. That is why I have mentioned at some point in this devotional that if you are not praiseful you will be grounded. Praiseful people can never head for the crash because God is always there piloting all their endeavours. I pray for you today, whatever is working negatively against your destiny trying to make your life crash receives instant judgment from heaven today. You shall not crash but go forward in Jesus name.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT:

Praiseful people can’t be stranded in life so go forward.

PRAYER:

Father, let it be well with me and all that concerns me. By virtue of Your presence with me may I go forward and not backward in Jesus name.
