In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations) AMOS OCHE EBIEGA is a 12 years old speaker and author that has published Twins & Murderer, Ruthless Ruler, and Cat & Dogs.

The Scriptures tell us that we all face temptations. First Corinthians 10:13 says, *“No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man.”* Perhaps this provides a little encouragement as we often feel that the world is bearing in on us alone and that others are immune to temptations. We are told that Christ was also tempted: *“For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin”* (Hebrews 4:15).

March 12, 2018: 20 Years After Archbishop Benson Andrew Idahosa: The man who vividly described his death.
By Leke Beecroft
March 12, 2018 makes it 20 years that the icon and ambassador of the gospel of Christ to the world, Benson Idahosa departed suddenly. He continues to speak loudly even in death. What many do not know is that he actually described in vivid terms how he was to depart when his time was over and that was exactly what happened on the day he died at the ripe young age of 59 years and 6 months. Leke Beecroft brings together the description by Idahosa in one of his
sermons “Benefit of Death” of his death with the day he actually died as documented in The Week magazine editions of 17 and 30 March 1998 for the first time ever in his
forthcoming book, as yet another evidence that as controversial as he might have seemed, truly, Idahosa was a man of God.
“I will go when my work is finished; therefore when I am gone nobody should be double-minded concerning the will of God for my death. I am going to go by the will of God, not
the will of witches or wizards. No man can kill me. Many have tried to hurt me spiritually and physically to no avail.
God has not given the key of the vault in which he has hidden me to any man or devil. He did not invest so much in me only to hand me over to the devil to fulfil his dark and
unholy idiosyncracies. I am indestructible by the grace of God, so are you if you know my Jesus. You know, here in Edo land, I do not know about you and where you come from, but here in Edo land, where I am from, when a man dies, the wife is always accused of having killed him.

At time 40:00 to 41:00 Bishop Oyedepo talking to Graduates of Covenant University talked about the importance of Impact.
He explained that without impact there was no way church members would leave Lagos where many other churches (which are very good) existed to come all the way to Ota where Canaanland is located. He cited an example of an individual who comes to worship at Canaanland all the way from Germany for Sunday service.
According to the Bishop the individual flies in on Sunday morning and flies back at Sunday evening to start work on Monday(The Individual presumably owns a Private Jet)

In a video that has now gone viral, Bishop Mike Okonkwo, founder of the Redeemed Evangelical Mission (TREM), said pastors are in the habit of using certain “semantics” to manipulate their members into paying tithe.
He said, “The first mention of tithe, there was no curse in it. Abraham gave the tithe of all to Melchizedek which was before the law. There was no curse and he did it willingly.
“I have frightened the church with curses for not paying tithes and that was because I didn’t know any better.
“You know we conjure all kinds of semantics like, ‘If you don’t pay your tithe, your life will be tight,’ and the people pay out of fear without God’s blessing.
“God wants you to pay tithe out of love, it shouldn’t be about the money, but about Jesus.”
In another video, the pastor dispelled the first fruit doctrine – a teaching by some Pentecostal pastors to their members to give all of their first salaries in the year or the first profit realized from their business undertakings as offerings.
Bishop Okonkwo said other pastors have approached him to also enforce payment of first fruit in his church, but he had always refused the counsel.
“Can you imagine all the businessmen, all the profit you made and you bring them to my feet. Even if I did not read it in the Bible, my conscience will not allow me.
“It is not all the gifts you take, take only the one you will be able to go to bed,” he said.

Prayer is not a substitute for hard work. Rather, Prayer Compliments HardWork.” If all it took to win the FIFA World Cup is gathering in the field of play like we always do, then The Super Eagles of Nigeria would have won every FIFA World Cup. But sadly, it takes way more than that.
We pray in the first half. Pray after the first half. And pray at the beginning of the second. Yet….
This just tells you that it takes more than praying and singing “He’s a miracle working God…”
Now this is not just about football. I’m only using this as an illustration.
Prayer is powerful, Wonderful and divine. In fact we have a 12 hour chain on going at the moment. But to think that prayer alone is what we need to fix Nigeria would amount to day dreaming. Because it is not. Prayer may set in motion the resources and chain of events to do so, but the place of design, strategy and sound implementation can not be wished away. It is clearly erroneous theology to think that after we pray things would just fall in place without clear courses of actions taken accordingly. This principle is as through on a personal level as it on a national level.
We must pray and act accordingly. “Actually, your prayer looks for something to ACT ON.”
So don’t just speak in tongues and sing. WHAT ARE YOU DOING?
And by he way, I hope the super eagles begin to prepare and work ahead of the World Cup. That way when they gather to pray on the pitch, their prayer finds something to work on.

14 Billy Graham Quotes That Helped Shape American Christianity
“Being a Christian is more than just an instantaneous conversion—it is a daily process whereby you grow to be more and more like Christ.”
“There is nothing wrong with men possessing riches. The wrong comes when riches possess men.”
“Courage is contagious. When a brave man takes a stand, the spine of others are often stiffened.”
“Mountaintops are for views and inspiration, but fruit is grown in the valleys.”
“Comfort and prosperity have never enriched the world as much as adversity has.”
“Churchgoers are like coals in a fire. When they cling together, they keep the flame aglow; when they separate, they die out.”
ON JUDGING OTHERS
“It is the Holy Spirit’s job to convict, God’s job to judge and my job to love.”
“Don’t ever hesitate to take to [God] whatever is on your heart. He already knows it anyway, but He doesn’t want you to bear its pain or celebrate its joy alone.”
“Many people are willing to have Jesus as part of their lives—as long as it doesn’t cost them anything. They may even profess faith in Jesus and join a church. But Jesus to them is almost like an insurance policy—something they obtain and then forget about until they die. What keeps you from being His disciple?”
ON BIBLE READING
“The very practice of reading [the Bible] will have a purifying effect upon your mind and heart. Let nothing take the place of this daily exercise.”
ON GOD’S LOVE
“Sin is the second most powerful force in the universe, for it sent Jesus to the cross. Only one force is greater—the love of God.”
“The greatest form of praise is the sound of consecrated feet seeking out the lost and helpless.”
“Salvation is an act of God. It is initiated by God, wrought by God, and sustained by God.”
“I’ve read the last page of the Bible. It’s all going to turn out all right.”

In the last 24 hours or so, News Media, social media and every other forms of Media have been awash with stories, captions and testimonies about this ONE LIFE. Billy Graham. Even secular News Media have spoken in such a honorable manner about this Man of God. As I read and listen closely, I’m yet to see anything that speaks about his material possessions. He hasn’t dominated global headlines because of riches and material wealth. But instead the whole of creation is standing because of the JESUS He preached so unmistakably and unambiguously, and the accompanying Life He lived. I read of Don Moen’s testimony whose Father in law was saved due to Billy’s Radio Broadcast in the 1950s. And because of that one experience changed the whole course of life of that family. One of whom is Don’s Wife. Imagine the number of Pastors saved, the Ministries Born, and the multitudes eternally saved because one man preached and lived JESUS.
I did a search on google this morning and found out the name BILLY GRAHAM was the most trending name in the World in 24 hours. Something many seek after. But something another man achieved even without seeking. But rather by seeking Christ’s kingdom and righteousness. And not just that – in the past 24 hours, there’s been so much mention of the name JESUS on secular news media and on social media because of Evangelist Graham.As I read all of these, it becomes clear what God intends our lives to be. One that dispenses the GLORY OF GOD. Paul puts it this way…. “But thank God! He has made us his captives and continues to lead us along in Christ’s triumphal procession. Now he uses us to spread the knowledge of Christ everywhere, like a sweet perfume.”
2 Corinthians 2:14 NLT.
As the body of Christ world over celebrates the transition of one of her generals, this occasion leaves me with some pertinent questions. What am I preaching? And How am I living? Am I preaching and living Christ? What fragrance is my life exuding? And what fragrance would it leave behind?
It is true what Jesus said, that a man’s life does not consist of the things that He owns.
And I dare to add, “but rather, about the LIVES He touched.” WHAT A LIFE !
