Who Exactly Is God's Anointed?





In 2010 when I was still a law student on Chamber attachment (internship), I attended one of the Full Gospel Business Men Fellowships at The Oriental Hotel VI with my boss. The fellowship was really interesting and they had a visiting pastor who appeared to be simply awesome. He was a very robust and respectable looking man who seemed to be in his early 50s. He was full of fire and energy and his spiritedness was very contagious. I remember him talking about how blessed he was, how he hadn't had a job in years as ministry was his sole passion but God always overly abundantly took care of all his needs and even more. 

He also said, with so much confidence and self-assurance, that there wasn't anyone whom he had prayed for that didn't have the prayers answered. To listen to him, one would think every word he spoke was straight from his mouth to God's ears and voila, like magic; done! And with those convincing words, he eagerly gave out his number. 

When you're in law school and you see some of the smartest students getting a pass, conditional pass or fail, you'd begin to realize that Bar finals isn't only about smarts but also God's grace or sheer luck perhaps. With that in mind I studied real hard but stayed prayed up, even to the point of asking everyone I knew to please put me in their prayers. I then remembered the selfless pastor whose prayers had never gone unanswered. I called him, introduced myself and told him my exams would be starting soon and to please remember me in his prayers. He chuckled and said God had already done it. 

Well eventually Bar finals turned out not to be the rocket science I had expected and I knew I'd do just fine in my result. And when the result came out I still remembered to call him, whether or not success was as a result of my hardwork, grace, my parents' prayers, my loved one's prayers, happenstance or this man's prayers. However unlikely that it was his prayers, I still called him. I re-introduced myself and told him my result was out and it was good and I'm just calling to share the good news and also say thank you. 

And that was when the demands began. 

He sent some text about money for ministry this and that and attached his account details. I remember thinking that it wasn't fair of him to ask someone whom he knew was barely out of school for money, but I immediately sent him 30,000 naira. 

Less than two months later he said his wife was ill and he called on everyone help out. I was broke at the time, remember I was barely out of law school and hadn't even gone for service. Still squeezed out 20,000 naira and sent that same day. 

A few more texts came over the next few months which I ignored, mainly because I was either broke or had more pressing needs for my money, but I remember receiving another text from him about money for ministry and sending about 45,000 naira. 

Over the years more of these texts have come and I have ignored each and every one of them since the last 45k. I was younger, naive and less responsible (or very irresponsible) with my finances. But the older I got the more his texts began to get my goat. I noticed that he was quick to text and attach his account details but would never text back to say thank you.

I noticed that he never sent any other texts, I mean, even during Christmas or Easter or New Year. You would not receive a single Merry Christmas of HNY text from him. But later that month, a text would come in without fail, stating that monies were needed and demanding you to make a deposit into his personal account. 

Also I resented the fact that these were bulk texts and only God knows how many of us he sends these to, and then we will all begin to send money to his "personal account" and enrich this supposed pastor's pocket while some of us got broker. I, for instance. In those times when I sent those monies it wasn't because I had a lot, I remember that 20k I sent was ALL the money I had to my name at the time... 

So for the first time in years, when I got a text from him yesterday, I responded. See below. 



He called me this morning for the first time since I met him. He wanted to know why I had sent "God's anointed" such texts and don't I know I'm playing with fire?


Which brings me to my questions, please who exactly is God's anointed? Anyone that calls himself a pastor? Anyone that mounts and pulpit and can quote the bible in the loudest voice? Anyone that so chooses to be called? Anyone that has accepted Christ as his Lord and Saviour? Who???


Help me out here guys. 


Ps; it 'pains' me that I never once wondered why money for the ministry was always instructed to be paid into his personal account.

    Thelma don't you know the essence of sowing seeds in the ministry? Please send *father* the 2k so that the fire you've been playing with will pass over you. It's just 2k mbok. After that fire, Dencia's products won't work on you. Biko...

  3. In 2016 ppl still dont know that religion is fraudulent? The missionaries brought you stories abt a magical higher being whom no1 has ever seen, told you that every good deed in your life is by the grace of a God and bad deeds the devil's.

    Who here can boast that they have experienced God on their own without quoting a man-written bible or hearsay passed on from your parents.

    1. I'm really curious as to how, despite your obvious lack of belief, you still had time to write "God" with a capital "G" twice.

  4. 1) Thelma! You were rich as a student o. Hian! N30k, N45k... If it was me as a student I wont send more than N1k.
    2) The way I see it, anybody that begs for money whether with deception or not, needs the money. If you have it then give.
    3) Who is Gods anointed?? Thats a difficult question. Hard to tell these days.
    4) Id like to know what you said to him on the phone.

    Peace.

  10. Lol... As naive as I am, I have never ever fallen into the hands of these kinds of people before. No matter how buoyant or otherwise I am, I'm just not moved by the fire and brimstone. I give when I want to, to actual people in need or in the church. No time to be dashing one pastor huge sums of money. If everybody gives to the pastor, who will give to Mama Tobi or the welder on the street?

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…

#WriteRight. VIVIAN: MY FIRST SEX EXPERIENCE WITH MY BOYFRIEND

He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

THE ‘NEW’ SIDE CHICK: I WAS HER

A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…

One More Post...

I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!

I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on).
