TO TRUTH – Happy Birthday, Pastor Tunde Bakare

“Sir, what are you telling her. . .?”That was the first statement he ever made to me. I was gisiting with a young lady in front of the Church’s bookshop on Akilo Way, when Pastor Tunde Bakare showed up behind me. He was doing his “management by walking around” as usual. I lost my voice…

DAY THIRTY-TWO: Responsible Followership

What manner of people are we supposed to be in following Christ?What manner of people are we supposed to be in following other brethren in Christ?What manner of people are we supposed to be in following other people outside of Christ . . .”in Christ” do not necessarily mean “the Church.” The age-long question has…

DAY TWENTY-EIGHT: Prophetic Restoration

The LORD sends a prophet to bring restoration to His people; He neither does a thing without first revealing it to the prophets nor send a prophet without a reason. Revelation is the forte of prophets and the execution of ‘the revealed’ is the forte of Apostles. In the body of Christ, with stratified consciousness…

DAY TWENTY-FIVE: Faithfulness in Shortages

The greatest challenge of a people with a mission is the inadequacy of the resources they require to execute their task.

DAY ELEVEN: Stumbling in Daylight

Hosea 4 has a unique story. Things have gone wrong, though the leadership in the temple was aware of it; they did nothing significant to address it. The people were beginning to rebuke each other, passing bulk of blames among them; they had enough to go round. While all these was on-going, God decides to…

Skeptics and the Shifts

I was in church for the first time in a very long time since COVID happened. Evidently, so much is never going to be the same again. I know it is human to easily forget our traumas and return to life, like nothing really happened but it seems we are unaware that this particular trauma…

Telling your Story . . .

A friend asked why our cities are full of churches and the world is yet to be turned upside down; depite the fact that it took one Paul and Asia was turned upside down and one Moses and the entire nation of Israel was delivered. Well, the answers are in one word – the DESIGN….

The EDICT: Introductions

Sometime in Q3 of 2018, in the early hours of the morning, the LORD asked me to sit and write a series of words, set in order to clarify matter that concerns the life of anyone who is TRULY in Christ. I did this, posted them on @Rarebuild’s page on Facebook for about 40 days,…
