Still Standing?

March 24, 2021


A Christian brother traveled to the UK,
he disembarked from the plane to
discover his international passport
with 5 years visa had been stolen or
He complained to the officials, they
tried everything they could for him.
The document was not found.
He was returned to Nigeria.
People started shouting “Village people”.
About six pastors and even the ones
he knew in the UK before traveling
to Nigeria all saw the hand of the
This brother started moving from
one pastor to the other seeking a
solution to the “village people” after
His younger sister brought him to one
of our programmes
He told me everything
I asked him if he was a born again
He said yes
What do you do in the UK
He said he was a barber and he had
a thriving practice
Where do you live?
He mentioned the location, he said
he was sharing accommodation with
about 20 other people
They all troop out to work during the
day and come in late at night to sleep
and troop out again in the morning
Some of the guys he was sharing the
accommodation with were into drugs,
some into fraud and others are into
legitimate business
They were all hustlers but there was
not time you get to their accommodation
when there wont be stolen items or drugs
or other forms of contrabands
They were all immigrants and everyone
minded their businesses
I started laughing at that point
I asked him if he had called any of
those guys since he got deported
He said no
I asked him why he had not called?
He said he didn’t want everybody to
know he was in a jam
I said please call one of them
This was in 2018 June!
He had been in the UK since 1998 and
only came to Nigeria in 2018 to celebrate
his mother’s 70th Birthday.
He placed the call, the person that
picked filled him in about a police raid
that happened in their house three
days after the day he was supposed
to have returned to the UK
The police and other agencies went to
raid their house in the middle of the night
and everyone they met at home was in jail
The only people spared were those on
night duties or those who had gone to
the club to hustle
The brother couldn’t close his mouth
He was just stammering because he
would have been at home at that time
His barbing saloon was located in a
commercial centre and worked all day
Many so-called pastors are wired to
pronounce negative stuff and project
fear and evil
If indeed God is your father, he could
subject you to a minor inconvenience
in order to preserve you from a huge
The brother’s passport was found
and mailed to him in Nigeria by an air
He eventually married the lady last
year and they are both living in the USA
None of those “village people announcers”
saw that coming!
When you’re in Christ, you either walk in
the light or you walk in denial of the light!

PS: I have seen people afflicted by the
power of darkness before from some
enemies in the village
Guess what?
Those people were not born again
They may be attending church or bearing
a Christian name
That does not make them Christians
Your life experience and that of others
around you is not a valid substitute for
the gospel
Anyone who has accepted Jesus Christ
as Lord and Saviour is no longer subject
to the manipulation and rulership of
darkness if he or she is walking in the
If Village people are still a factor in
your life, please examine your faith
Perhaps you’re no longer standing
in Christ.
