The Battle of Manhood, This is how to win💪 Part 1
I was born a Man, but now I am a Woman. I was born a Woman, but now I am a Man. Surprisingly, this is the absurd statements that has become common in today’s world. Men turning themselves into women, biologically and physically. What type of demon has bewitched this generation? The battle line for Manhood has been drawn. Well, welcome to the 21st century where the battle of Manhood has defiled common sense. It is a dirty battle. The toughest test in today’s world is it to tell what defines the male-man. After listening to the stories and narratives of the world media, one would argue that it is almost easier to define an animal, than to define the male-man. Everyone has an opinion of who the man is, yet the man doesn’t who he is.
Today, the most confusing phenomenon in the face of humanity is not how to fire a rocket, but defining who a man is, because the demons in the world has pushed the man to set his manhood on fire. What defines a man? This is a question you must answer with the deepest understanding of your source and essence if you are Man. Growing up, it was impossible to confuse the man with another creature. The assertion of his strength, courage, toughness and character made him the pride of creation. There was a man in him you could see in the roar of his voice and stir of his eyes. Nations wanted more of the male-man. The weakness of his strength was enough to defend the land of his inheritance. The courage in his spirit was enough to quench the furry of the advancing enemy. The toughness in his bones was enough to carry the weight of his family. The strength of his courage convinced the beautiful damsel to follow him home. When things got tough, men got tougher. When things got impossible, men figured out the hardest way out. In the land of Egypt, Pharaoh ordered the killing of any male-man born in the house of the Israelite. Why? The Israelite-male were his biggest threat to the throne. In the land of Judah, Herod ordered the killing of all male child within two years and below, in his search for the male-child Jesus. The demons in the world has long set out the fierce pursuit of the male-man to eliminate him. In response, the male-man is caught up in limbo, trying to figure out how to respond.
In the battle for survival, the image of male-man is changing. His character is painted criminal, violent and untrustworthy. His biological frame is being mutilated. His self-essence is as described by the news media, like CNN and BBC, where the essence of the male-man is being declared as “OBSOLETE”. Many times, I have heard statement like: All men are the same, Men are dogs, All men cannot be trusted. These are dangerous statements of war. They are meant to cripple the male-man even before he attempts to live. They are meant to convince the man that there is nothing good in him. It is a demonic statement meant cripple the male-man from become the Man of Valour who God has created him to be. It pushes the man that even he tries, he will fail. It cripple his courage to pursue any virtue of character. Eventually, the man is harassed and pushed into questioning his true self, and becoming something less than a man should be. When you hear statements like, All men are the same, Men are dogs, All men are pigs, All men cannot be trusted, know that the pit of hell is speaking. Shut it down! Whatever a man believes, becomes activated in his life.
The Bible says, let it be unto you according to your faith. Sometimes last year, a lady came for family counselling. It was a very bad case because as at the time she came, the husband has moved out of the house. As I got into the matter, with prayers, the Lord began to reveal the underlying issues. The lady got close to my wife. In one of her conversation with my wife, she started advising my wife that all men are the same. She was of the opinion that my wife could not trust me (her husband) because all men cannot be trusted. At that moment, my wife enraged and had to completely cut her off complete. She couldn’t try that with her husband. It was clear that the power of this evil message was the fire that set this woman’s home on ablaze. The man was treated like ‘all men are dogs’ and he behaved just like dogs. The moment a man is painted with this demonic brush, he is dragged to the pit errors because he ceases to live for any virtue.
The unfortunate tragedy is that most men of this age are blindly ignorant of the ongoing war. They accept the evil label and become spiritually overpowered to act in stupidity, committing the same crime and evil that classified all men as dogs. No, all men are not dogs. No, all men are not pigs. No, all men are not the same. If you a man, or the one who love men, now is the time for you to rise and shout🕺🕺💪💪 👉No, all men are not the same. 👉I am a man and I am different 👉I am a man, I cannot be disarmed by the demons of this world 👉I am a man, I refuse to accept the evil label of this world. 👉I am a man, I am not a dog. 👉I am a man, I am not a pig. 👉I am a man, I can be trusted. 👉The fall of one man is not the fall of a man like me. 👉Other can fall, but I will stand by the grace of God my maker 👉Other may behave like a dog, but I am a Lion 👉Others men may behave like a pig, but I am A Man of Valour. 👉I am a Man of Valour. Watch out for me!!! 👉In this Battle for Manhood, I Must win💪💪💪💪💪💪💪💪💪💪💪💪
Anger and Conflict Resolution
That feeling of irritation that is often expressed more in tone of voice and nonverbal expressions can deaden the love of a wife for her husband; because many men struggle with these feelings and lack the vocabulary, anger is often used in response. Anger is a secondary emotion and is usually caused by fear, hurt or frustration. It is true that we as men tend to avoid conflict if at all possible. Sometimes we feel overwhelmed by the process, especially if we’ve never learned a healthy pattern of resolving conflict. Avoiding conflict doesn’t make it disappear, it only makes it grow larger. If you try to bury it, you only postponed a bigger problem. In the moment, anger can be difficult to stop in its tracks. However, detecting the emotion early can be key. It can allow a man to redirect his thought process to a more constructive place. Focusing on solutions rather than problems increases the chances of a resolution and reduces the likelihood of an angry reaction. Dear Men of Valour, conflict is a part of marriage and so today we trust God for Grace and wisdom to positively address whatsoever tough conflict-propelled situation we are facing in our marriages and relationship. Amen.
This is Heart breaking…😪😪 More than 95% of people in the prisons are men. The question is, why are so many Men ending up in prisons? So many will never make it home alive. The answer is heartbreaking … The world powers and the god of this world has disconnected so many men from the voice of the maker. The government removed Bibles from Schools, but give it to Men in prison. They ban preaching in public places, ban prayers at school and work places but allow tons of preacher into the prisons everyday. When Men get to prison, there is a Bible in their cell, but while they are in society, school or at work, the Bible is kept away from them. Why must Men go to prison to read the Bible? Ahhhhh… My heart bleeds…. Why! Why! Why! If they had given them Bibles to read in school, many would not have ended up in prison. Man of Valour, wake up your enemy is close. He is near. Wake up! You are the target. He has come to cut you off from the voice of your maker, take you to prison and pretends to be a friend. This is the scheen of the enemy to crush the Men and silence their voice on earth, by keeping them away from the voice of their God. You Man of Valour, run go grab your Bible now. In it is the breath of your life. The wisdom that overcomes the world is in it. Do not allow anyone government, or power take away the Bible from you now, only to give it to you in the prison.
Be Stubborn and run from it. Speaking of Masturbation, we could build walls and barricades like: – Read your bible always – Don’t discuss sex with people – Pray out sexual thoughts when it comes – Have a prayer partner…etc But all these are like cutting down the tree and leaving the roots. The root will definitely sprout again and the tree will be formed. That’s why we mostly find ourselves repeating the same things we prayed and fasted against. Knowledge is what delivers, understanding is what establishes. Hosea 4:6, Job 36:12 says “My people are destroyed because they lack knowledge.” So, Masturbation is an act of sexual excitement. – It is a feeling, and it is temporal. – It doesn’t kill if you don’t respond to it. – It is never satisfied, always demanding for more. – It is not a replacement for fornication (either fornication or masturbation, both stinks to God). – The thought of it is FLESH which then translates to SIN. However, apart from the regular prayers and study of the word, also ensure you deliberately decide not to engage in the act again. When it comes to masturbation, go wayward, be defiant, be stubborn, rude and disobedient to the act. Then the Holy Spirit will support you!
Let’s pray thus:
Teach us Lord as Men of Valour, to serve You as You deserve. King Saul and his host of Army got to the battlefield earlier but David came last to take the victory. It does not matter who got there before you, It does not matter what people are saying about you, Your arrival will break barriers, your miracle will break protocols, your testimony shall last forever. You shall be the most preferred anywhere you go. Power to survive this year shall rest upon you and the name of the Lord shall be glorified. So shall it be in Jesus precious name. Amen.
The Battle for Manhood, This is how to win – Part 2
In the last two weeks in this month of May, 3 young men have reportedly committed suicide in Nigeria alone. 1. Mr Michael, a church worship leader, committed suicide by hanging himself with his belt in his room in Abuja. 2. Chukwuemeka Akachi, a 1st class student in University of Nigeria Abuja, committed suicide by drunking a bottle on unknown piosnous substance. 3. Segun a young lad seeking admission into the univertisity attempted suicide by drinking a poisonous substance called snipper because his JAMB score was 167/400. What is common to all three is that they all are young Men. These are just the cases that has been reported. The truth is that many more men are being pushed over cliff into taking their own lives. Many are unreported. This is not a coincidence.
The battle for Manhood is real. Men wake up, it is here. It is raging. The Men of Valour must wake up to fight, or be overrun by the demons, unleashed against Manhood. Why must it be this way? One of the demons unleashed on men is the Satanic cloud of judgement and shame of failure. Being young has become so hard. There is now no room for the man to grow up. He is mocked for attempting. He is ashamed, for trying and failing. He is exposed for seeking help. He is silenced for crying. The pressure from the society on young men is so high that young men chose the rope over their lives. The life of men is now being measured only by wordly fame, wealth, status and influence. The true role of their worth and position in the divine plan of God is trashed. In response, the man is confused, caught in limbo and sometimes, suicide note, and option the world has presented the man with becomes the fast ways out.
Men are being sentenced in the court of public opinion to either achieve and arrive big or die without a second chance. It is about escaping the shame of being branded a failure. Expectation is to be the best or feel like shit. Many men are in messed up relationships because they cannot meet the expectations set by their spouse and family members. Being broke and jobless does not help. There is often no excuse a man can give for being in a season of joblessness or being broke. The verdict is ‘failure.’ Lack of opportunities drops the spirit of hope. In all, it is all about rejection and harsh judgements. I’ve heard the mockery statements, “You say you are a Man, prove yourself.” This sort of statements and attitude has taken so many men off their track. Listen my fellow Men, this is a battle without rules of engagement, but the grips of the rope is not the solution. The bite of the poison is not the answer.
You the Man of Valour must Fight back. Never give in to the power and voice of suicide. You must stay strong an fight. If you do not win today, you will win tomorrow. If it doesn’t happen today, it will happen tomorrow. There is hope. Remember the generation of your name hangs on your breath. Committing suicide is more shameful than fighting forward. There is always another chance at life. Place you body on control. Do not let your body control you. Do not let the world control your decisions to live. Place your expectations under control. Do not let your expectations control you. Place you goals under control. Do not let people set goals for you to pursue. Pursue your life goals. Fail or win, it is your goal. If you do not win today, you will win tomorrow. If it doesn’t happen today, it will happen tomorrow. You are the one in-charge of the things that you allow happen to you, because Our God never fails. So stay hopeful. Keep hanging on.
There is a light coming. Do not stay away from the power of grace and hope in Christ. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him from them all. There is hope. When things come crashing, run to the cross, where Jesus shed his blood for you. There is power in His blood to mend the broken pieces. Don’t die in silence. Speak to someone.
