Worship The King, the annual night of worship Returns!

News reaching us at the moment is that the most anticipated worship program in western Nigeria, “Worship The King (WTK)” is set to hold in August 2018 at a new venue in the city of Lagos.

The annual night of worship which premiered in 2013 and has grown to be widely renowned as the most intense worship vigil, formally took place within the Redemption Camp along Lagos-Ibadan Express way.

After taking a break in 2017, the organising committee has come out with a statement for the program’s regulars and prospective first timers, that 2018 will witness a whole new and improved WTK at a new venue.

According to their instagram post, the new venue for WTK 2018 is The Vanguard of Grace church auditorium, Oniru, Victoria Island, Lagos. This venue is said to be more convenient for people as most of the attending worshipers reside in and around Lagos state while those flying in will not have to travel interstate after landing at the Airport.

This news is being welcomed by fans, friends and followers of the WTK concert who were, in 2017, unable to experience the powerful worship sessions the concert is known for.

The organising committee as usual has withheld the identity of Guest Music Ministers expected to minister at the program to ensure that people come with the sole aim of worshiping God and not because of a particular worship minister.

They are also making a call to all worship loving believers around the world to attend this blessed event with friends and family as we all raise our hearts and voices to worship the King of Kings.

QB; Mind Where You Point That Thing.

We live in a world where premarital sex is a norm. People meet for the first time, they have sex, simply because they like each other. Others go on some dates and then sex, like going on dates will validate the sex. Some others say “after all we are getting married soon” so, sex. We fail to understand that the same lack of self control that leads to fornication, leads to adultery. So we now have baby mamas everywhere, baby daddies too and millions of children who have no idea who their fathers are.

Lets make this clear, every father is a trainer, whether you like it or not, we you are married to the child’s mother or not. If you are not ready to function in that capacity, holster you weapon sir! One of the biggest problems in our generation is incompetent fathers who are failing their children by not showing up and not training their kids so these they can make smarter decisions than their dads. Most baby daddies are yet to put their life together. Most of them lack the discipline in the first place to keep from knocking women up so seeing them messing the lives of their offspring is no surprise.

Women on the other hand, should stop getting pregnant for men who aren’t their husbands; stop sleeping with men only to be surprised that you are pregnant. Thats how people get pregnant! No trick used in preventing pregnancy is 100% sure so close your legs ma, don’t bring a child into this world only to damage him/her. And enough of all that feminist/voluntary single mom nonsense; don’t bring an innocent child into your social ideology conquest. Stop trying to use the life and destiny of a helpless child to prove your point. Get married and raise a family the right way…not for you but for the kids, they need a balanced home. If we all just stop this narcissism and prioritise the children, our decisions will align with our responsibilities as trainers.

Its not like there’s a certificate school where mothers and fathers learn to train kids. Some of us weren’t raised properly by our parents, some of us never met our parents. So half the time, we have no idea what to do or how to do it. But we must always try to raise our children right. In the end, it is our desire to function in the capacity of a trainer and mentor to our kids that helps us eventually find a way.

QB; Trains

It is saddening to watch young people and kids grow up without proper parental training, especially from fathers or father figures. It is more saddening that people now deliberately give birth to or adopt kids with the intention of raising them without balanced training from both mother and father figures. The later usually happens when the parent is thinking more about self and the pleasures of having a child than the child and the training required for optimal growth. Yes it may seem like a great show of benevolence adopting a child but truly, whoever deliberately brings a child into an imbalanced home is doing harm to that child.

So whats with all the talk about training?

In the last post, we distinguished preaching and teaching from training. This was done to ensure that this post hits the nail right on the head. Myles Monroe said that the art of training is basically the same process carried out by a train. The prime mover of the train is the first part which is most important as it determines movement and direction while the other parts are called cars. The cars are attached to the prime mover and follow it everywhere it turns. Once the link between cars and the prime mover is broken, the cars could move into other tracks as the train changes direction till they eventually grind to a stop since they are no more attached to their original source of movement and direction.

This is the same with training, especially training in a family. Dad and Mom are required to train the kids with their lifestyles; not just with books or even the bible. Granted, it is very important to direct the to scriptures so they can stand on the word of God with their own two feet, but the truth is that kids, especially the little ones learn more by observation than instruction. A very good percentage of the things kids do is usually based on the observations of the dominant figure in their lives. This is why the role of proper training cannot be over emphasised.

You can preach to your child, you should teach your child but the game changer is good sound training. This is usually the distinguishing factor among kids; observe a group of teenagers together for a while and you can tell which of them are being trained by a father and mother figure and which aren’t, even when they actually had fathers and mothers.

We hope this quote was broken down adequately. Let’s endeavour to get it right with our individual families; they determine the social climate of any nation.

QB: Imperfection

It is said that the church is a hospital and the only person who’s completely sound is the Holy Spirit. This means that even the preacher is dealing with some issues and is, half the time, preaching to himself. So it is possible that preachers don’t live exactly what they preach yet.

T.D. Jakes recounts the times he had to go preach on subjects like “Jehovah Jireh, God the provider” and he would have to hitch a free a ride to the church. Pastor Chris recounts his days in the university when he would sneak out of the hospital where he was admitted and under medication only to go and preach/minister healing at crusades. There are preachers who preach prosperity even while they are downright broke. This is because preaching is simply declaring GOD’S word regardless of the prevailing circumstances. So even preachers are not perfect, however, they daily strive for perfection as they let their lives align with those declarations.

The teacher is allowed to fall short of the standard. This is because teaching is not based on the personal life of the teacher but a curriculum. So a teacher of law may not practice law but raise great lawyers. A teacher of physics may just teach the theories and a little practicals but may not be knowledgeable in the intricacies of applications. This doesn’t mean he won’t raise ground breaking physicists.

A Trainer on the other hand is required to live by the standards of the training. This is because training is based on the lifestyle of the trainer, specific to whatever area needed by the trainee. Notice that the preacher and teacher carry out their work using an independent standard, the Bible or the textbook. The trainer is not independent of the training guid. It is a do as i do situation. This is why you must be careful who trains you in any aspect of life.

Fathers are basically the first trainers of any human being. This is why fathers must get it right. Career coaches, marriage coaches, etc are trainers you may beed or encounter later in life but the initial works must be laid down by a father.

The value and absence of a father will be discussed in subsequent posts on Quote Breakdown.

Makeover (baby girl)…lyrics

I’ve got a friend

who’s the best makeup artiste i know,

He gives the best makeovers in the world,

It may be hard for you to believe, but if he did it for me,

He will do it for you…

Baby girl had a dream,

To be the girl on the screen,

To be the star she knew she could be.

But she had to take care of daddy,

Who was sick to the bone

While her mother had taken to drinking.

Her baby brother and sister,

Depended on her

As she tried to raise money for dinner.

It got tough to survive

and she had nothing to lose

So she chose to do whatever it took.

So she made the wrong friends,

Took the wrong stuff,

And soon the click became a gang.

They took up on drugs

with guns to their side,

when they walked through the block

People ran in to hide

She knew sex had a cost

So she did it for money,

She aborted her kids

Though she never was sorry,

She was losing her mind

And she knew something was wrong,

She tried to get help

‘cos she was lost all along.

She ran to her mother

but she was passed out drunk,

Baby called out for daddy,

But he was dead and gone.

She cried for her siblings

‘Cos they were lost to the world,

So she ran to the church cos she could take it no more…

She cried Jesus please help me,

People say you change lives.

I don’t know if you can hear me

With this evil inside.

I’m running out of time

And I will self-destruct

If you don’t touch my life

‘Cos theres no one else to trust.

So Jesus showed up for her

Like He showed up for me.

If you see baby girl,

You will hardly believe.

She has a beautiful life

With beautiful kids,

She has a husband who loves her

Who led her to Christ.

This is what Jesus does;

If you’re lost you’ll be found,

He will take your pain

And turn your frown upside down…
