God Deplores Corruption & Injustice in Governance

Why? Because Leaders actually took an oath by swearing on the Bible (or Quran ) to serve, protect and uphold the laws of the land they were chosen to lead. Unfortunately, many leaders do not take their oathes seriously.

This is a direct message to all corrupt leaders across the globe. If they don’t repent of their evildoings, then they only have themselves to blame.

Fortunately, there is still a way out for every corrupt leader if they repent and repair the damage they have done to their nations; the pain & suffering they have caused their citizens.

PLEASE READ!

Isaiah Chapter 1 verses 15 – 31 states:

When you spread out your hands, I will hide My eyes from you; Even though you make many prayers, I will not hear.

Your hands are full of blood.

“Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean; Put away the evil of your doings from before My eyes.

Cease to do evil, Learn to do good; Seek justice, Rebuke the oppressor; Defend the fatherless, Plead for the widow.

“Come now, and let us reason together,” Says the Lord , “Though your sins are like scarlet, They shall be as white as snow; Though they are red like crimson, They shall be as wool.

If you are willing and obedient, You shall eat the good of the land; But if you refuse and rebel, You shall be devoured by the sword”; For the mouth of the Lord has spoken.

How the faithful city has become a harlot! It was full of justice; Righteousness lodged in it, But now murderers. Your silver has become dross, Your wine mixed with water. Your princes are rebellious, And companions of thieves;

Everyone loves bribes, And follows after rewards.

They do not defend the fatherless, Nor does the cause of the widow come before them. Therefore the Lord says, The Lord of hosts, the Mighty One of Israel, “Ah, I will rid Myself of My adversaries, And take vengeance on My enemies. I will turn My hand against you, And thoroughly purge away your dross, And take away all your alloy. I will restore your judges as at the first, And your counselors as at the beginning. Afterward you shall be called the city of righteousness, the faithful city.” Zion shall be redeemed with justice, And her penitents with righteousness.

The destruction of transgressors and of sinners shall be together, And those who forsake the Lord shall be consumed. For they shall be ashamed of the terebinth trees Which you have desired; And you shall be embarrassed because of the gardens Which you have chosen. For you shall be as a terebinth whose leaf fades, And as a garden that has no water. The strong shall be as tinder, And the work of it as a spark; Both will burn together, And no one shall quench them. Isaiah 1:15‭-‬31 NKJV https://bible.com/bible/114/isa.1.15-31.NKJV

Share this message with any corrupt elected official you know anywhere on the globe, in any city, in any state, in any country or on any continent. If they fear God and His retribution, it’s time for them to change the way they govern.

EVERY DAY HEROES – HEALTHCARE WORKERS WHO DIED BATTLING COVID-19 PANDEMIC

She had just rolled over in bed, snuggling

down a little deeper in the soft, silk sheets and pulled her comforter up to her neck when
the alarm went off. It’s 4.45 AM. Time to get ready for work. She tries not to disturb her
husband but he is also already awake. He has followed her schedule for the last 20 years
of their life even though he works in Information Technology (IT) and by no means need to be up before 6:00AM but waking up at this time is one of the many ways he supports her medical profession. 

It is a typical Monday morning for this physician who has a 40 minute commute to see her first patient scheduled for 7.00 AM.

She is not a coffee drinker but sometimes requires a small cup of green tea for that energy boost.

She arrives at the office at 6.40 AM and preps by reviewing her schedule for today. Hmm, she notes that 6 out of 15 patients on the schedule are coming in with respiratory / flu-like symptoms.

Highly unusual for the month of February when flu season is just about wrapping up and allergy season is still about 2 months away. Little did she and her medical team realize they were facing an unprecedented pandemic that the world was not ready for. 

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (abbreviated to Covid-19)  or Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 ( SARS-CoV-2 ) is a highly contagious virus that made it’s first appearance in late December 2019 in Wuhan, China but quickly spread across the globe infecting over 2,600,000 million and killing more than 182,000 at the time of writing this article.

Healthcare workers all over the world are scrambling to save people affected by this devastating disease that causes the most non-specific symptoms ranging from loss of taste/ smell, sore throat, generalized malaise, dry cough, muscle ache/ soreness, mild – high fever, loss of appetite, stomach ache, diarrhea, nausea, chest pain, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing on exertion, chest pain, air hunger, respiratory distress and respiratory failure.

Originally believed to be transmitted only by respiratory droplets, it is now believed that the virus might be aerosolized and remain suspended in the air for as long as 3 hours. Early in this pandemic, first responders answered calls to evaluate people who were having severe breathing problems initially without proper protection which put them at risk for contracting Covid-19 infection. Doctors practicing in emergency, inpatient and even outpatient settings started to make the connection that these new flu-like symptoms may actually be Covid-19 infection but since very little is known about this virus, proper precaution was not taken.  There was a major delay in providing personal protective equipment (PPE) to the frontline workers as cases began to grow exponentially across the United States especially in New York, New Jersey and Illinois. Hospital and healthcare workers began to feel the strain as ICU and hospital beds began to fill up with Covid-19 infected patients struggling to breath and required ventilators to keep them alive. State Governors were forced to recall retired doctors/ nurses to join the

frontlines despite the fact that the infection had a higher fatality in persons age 60 and older.

4th year medical students were conferred with MDs earlier than scheduled so they too can join the war against Covid-19.

Families who had 2 parent healthcare workers had to re-write their living wills and power of attorney as they were faced with the reality of them and their elderly parents possibly dying from Covid-19. Who will be left to take care of their young children?

Doctors, nurses, and other allied healthcare workers around the globe are working tirelessly to save those infected. These are unprecedented circumstances that truly illuminates the sacrifice that healthcare workers make to save lives. While the rest of the population are advised to “shelter-down” so they do not get exposed to the highly contagious virus, healthcare workers are donning basic PPEs to enter rooms where the viral concentration emanating from infected persons exceed the protection required by a biohazard level 4 lab!

Heroes that have died include –

Dr. J. Ronald Verrier (General Surgeon,  St. Barnabas hospital, NY), Vianna Thompson ( Nurse, VA Hospital, Reno Nevada), Alvin Simmons (custodian, Rochester General

Hospital, NY), Dr. Frank Gabrin ( ED physician, New Jersey East Orange General Hospital/ St. Johns Hospital , Queens NY), Dr. Li Wenliang ( Chinese Ophthalmologist, Wuhan Central Hospital, he sounded the alarm before Covid-19 became a pandemic), Dr. Alfa Saadu ( retired British NHS physician of Nigerian descent, Queen Victoria Memorial Hospital in southern England who was volunteering to care for Covid-19 patients) , Dr. James T. Goodrich ( Neurosurgeon, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Bronx NY) , Dr. Desmond Adedeji (Great Western Hospital, Wiltshire), Mary Agyeiwaa Agyapong( pregnant nurse, Luton and Dunstable University Hospital ), Carol Jamabo ( Caregiver, Cherish Elderly Care Bury, Greater Manchester) just to mention a few fallen heroes.


Please pray for all healthcare and essential workers as they work tirelessly to get us through this pandemic.

God’s Purpose for Our Lives

“Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord ’s purpose that prevails”. Proverbs 19:21 NIV https://bible.com/verse-of-the-day/pro.19.21/913

Have you taken a moment to thank God for waking you up today? Do you have a long “to do” list?

I recommend a different approach to tackling your list for today….and always.

At the very top, your item #1 should be “Dear Lord, may your will be done in my life today. ”

Committ yourself to His purpose and not yours and watch where He decides to take you. You will be pleasantly surprised and blessed!

Have a blessed day and be safe from Covid-19.

#stayhome or if you have to go out, practice #socialdistancing

Can an Orphan Become the next Pablo Picasso? Its happening now at The Abolarin College

I visited Nigeria during Independence day this year and I decided to do something different.
To commemorate Nigeria’s 59th Independence day I adopted a High School (Oct 1st was a public holiday so had to wait until Oct 2, 2019 to catch students in class).
This was not just any ordinary high school, it is a school of excellence with unique kids who are extremely brilliant.

They also have a unique founder-father figure in the person of Kabiyesi Orogun of Ila-Orangun Oba Adedokun Abolarin who’s vision to help alleviate poverty among the most vulnerable indigenes of his town. The king has adopted all 138 students currently enrolled in his school and provides free accommodation, tuition and meals.

Oba Abolarin (dressed in blue polo shirt and shorts below) is not a filthy rich man but he is rich in spirit. He knows every single one of these kids and their heart wrenching stories.
He wants to change their narratives of poverty, abuse and abandonment to that of courage, integrity, strength of character and love for community.

These children are academically strong as they no longer have typical life distractions like participating in the child labor market to meet the demands of hunger or make ends meet.
The Abolarin College would like to partner with you
to help these children reach their full potential. Yes, the next Picasso may be molded right here at The Abolarin College.

Please contribute whatever you can to help support and sustain this NGO private school knowing full well that you are investing in Nigeria’s future.

Visit their Facebook page and and become a friend and partner of the Abolarin College.
