Wisdom for Now & Instruction – Fred Obetoh

Wisdom is the ability to use initiative and this particular gift comes from God just like he gave king Solomon. But, instruction is the ability to follow orders and advice to the latter without doubting and loosing faith in Christian perspective. The ability for Christians to obey instruct have been said over and over in the Bible. The need to follow the instruction of God or his servants (clergies) becomes important .In the book of 1st king 17 Vs 5 – 18 . In this chapter the Widow was under instruction, the man of God (Elijah) was also under instruction. The issue of last meal came into place.

Bible commanded us to be obedient and follow instructions. In the above mentioned version, Elijah made it known that he is under instruction and the woman should worry not. In the book of Jeremiah 33 Vs 3 also brought this to the fore. Here God said that if we call unto him he would answer us , but we must be and able to obey instruction.

As a Christian, have you asked yourself how many times have I obeyed the instruction of your pastor or that of any clergy that is called by God. You don’t expect a real pastor to dance to your tone, he might tell you things that you might not find palatable because any true man of God is under instruction and he would align himself with the biblical principles and that of God. So. If you sit down and start thinking that your pastor would give you favourable instruction that is not in tandem with God, you are making mistake.

God gave us a clear instruction that he would bless the work of our hands. Now , you sit at home everyday and say that you re praying and fasting, please when do you work and also know that faith without good work is useless. You must obey the instruction that we must work ! That is a clear instruction.

Christians should pray that they alway have a soft heart and that would make them willing to accept godly instruction. One of the reason why we want to grow in instruction is to grow in our knowledge of God so that we can know how to live righteous, just and equitable lives. The importance of instruction was shown in Genesis 12: 2 where Abraham was instructed to move and establish somewhere else and he followed it to latter also.

This period though a lot of people are making money irrespective of the position of the economy and why are they doing that? Many of them have followed the instructions that was handed over to the either directly from God or through his servants. We can’t do away without instructions. It is a part of life .

Many people especially youths of these days don’t follow instructions especially when it comes to relationships. They tend to follow their hearts and not the instructions given to them by God or the words of their pastors. That is why many divorces are happening today. If we can follow simple biblical instructions as it has to do with marriages, a lot would be saved and the rates of divorce would reduce.

One of the greatest men in the Bible is Abraham, that is the fact but one thing about Abraham is that he is a man that is constantly under instruction and he has demonstrated ability to follow instructions to the latter from the time he moved to Egypt, his relationship with his wife Sarah irrespective of her age and also the sacrifice of his son which God wanted to test his faith. And at the end of the day God rewarded him with father of faith, all faiths respect him from Christianity to Judaism. What is this telling us ? Follow instructions and get rewarded by God!

We are aware of the latest statement from the so-called “Northern Elders Forum”.
We wish to reassure Nigerians that it remains their democratically elected leadership which takes the decisions that steer our nation – and no one else.

No self-appointed and unelected group can take this right from Nigerians – no matter how much coverage they might enjoy in the media. Nigerians listen to elected leaders, not opinionated tin-gods who have no traction with any responsible group.

It is a delusional arrogance that would lead such a group to publicly state terms and conditions for the existence of our nation.

Who gave them the right to ask for the exclusion, or expulsion of any one, group or section of the country from the Federal Republic of Nigeria?

The Nigerian government does not…
