Get Rich Or Cry Tryin’

Your journey starts when you begin well.

Back in February 2003, American rapper Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson released his most successful studio album till date titled “Get Rich or Die Tryin”. In his review for USA Today, Steve Jones believed that the album is worthy of the hype 50 Cent had attracted because of how he “delivers, in vivid detail, stories of the violent life he led as a crack dealer and speaks with the swagger of one who has been shot nine times and lived to tell about it.

Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson’s album ‘Get Rich Or Die Tryin, was certified 9X platinum by the RIAA.

The album however, like many hip hop albums of the day, projected the life of the hustle and struggles of the inner cities in the United States. Making money via any means and escaping the law whiles doing that was the major highlight. But unknowing to them, not only did they preach through their songs the reality in their environment, they also educated an entire generation to adopt wealth creation systems and principles which are not in alignment with that of heaven.

So fast forward to the year 2020, we are currently set in a time where the prevailing mindset as regards wealth creation and making money is to keep chasing the “paper” and ensuring you capture it at all cost. Ignoring the foundational truths to acquiring true riches has given room to the increase in numerous get-rich-quick schemes which have brutally injured many who were involved in them.

A whole lot of people now wait for the next “money-making, money-doubling” platform to make quick cash and hopefully deliver themselves from the pain and misery of poverty, lack and deprivation. Ponzi schemes have left a very sore and bitter taste in the “financial mouths/pockets” of many well-meaning but gullible participants.

Many gullible and uniformed individuals will keep falling victim to pyramid and Ponzi schemes.

The entire structure and functionality of these schemes is built on initially investing with any given amount and then making sure you refer as many people as possible to ensure you make larger profits. They are able to run effectively only if the referral energy of the down and up liners keep their game strong enough. So if at any rate the “referral engine” slows down, the compensation plan will be drastically affected and in most cases shut down.

Pyramid schemes have always benefitted the creators and sometimes early subscribers but the pain has always been excruciating for those at the bottom of the chain. To press on this subject a little more, let me notify you also of the new form by which these schemes have taken shape.

“Smart contracts built on the blockchain technology” is the newest form by which these get-rich-quick schemes are finding expression. The crypto currency space has now been encroached heavily by many who subscribe to this system. Their crush, as always, is imminent and the pain of loosing money will again be felt by many who will jump on this supposedly “moving train”.

The CRYPTOCURRENCY space is the current arena being besieged by these pyramid schemes.

So therefore, what is the way out of economic hardship of any kind? Because, the major reason for which several people engage in these money-making schemes is so they can escape poverty and lack. What then is God’s answer for this seemly invariant challenge?

God, through the wisdom of His word, supplies the solution to creating sustainable wealth according to morality and ethics.

Proverbs 23:7a KJV

For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he…….

From this verse of scripture, the first step to creating wealth sustainably is to embrace and engage a belief system that will sponsor that desired experience. Any experience you have outside the framework of your paradigm can never be sustainably replicated. So in order to create wealth empirically without hitches, you first of all have to possess a mindset that will give room to make that happen.

The Holy script is the most potent platform through which transformation is secured.

Proverbs 8:10-21 KJV
Receive my instruction, and not silver; and knowledge rather than choice gold. [11] For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it. [12] I wisdom dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge of witty inventions. [13] The fear of the Lord is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate. [14] Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding; I have strength. [15] By me kings reign, and princes decree justice. [16] By me princes rule, and nobles, even all the judges of the earth. [17] I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me. [18] Riches and honour are with me; yea, durable riches and righteousness. [19] My fruit is better than gold, yea, than fine gold; and my revenue than choice silver. [20] I lead in the way of righteousness, in the midst of the paths of judgment: [21] That I may cause those that love me to inherit substance; and I will fill their treasures.

To enforce this fact further, He goes on to propose and recommend the kind and quality of information that is potent enough to bring us what we desire materially.

Proverbs 16:16 KJV
How much better is it to get wisdom than gold! and to get understanding rather to be chosen than silver!

The kind of wisdom that will cause a man to both create wealth sustainably and also be upright in their dealings, is the wisdom which God Himself offers.
Throughout the verse of scripture shared above (Proverbs 8:10-21), we discover that WISDOM comes as a total package. It possesses wealth, riches, honour, power, influence and so much more. Everything that any earthly man and even spirits in other planes of existence will desire can be found with Wisdom.

Wisdom, which comes from above, is truly the principal thing and if any man will desire all that comes along with it, he/she must first of all crave, pursue and get this WISDOM at all cost.

Solomon, in 2 Chronicles 7, however exemplified this entire subject of wealth creation.

2 Chronicles 1:7-12 KJV
In that night did God appear unto Solomon, and said unto him, Ask what I shall give thee. [8] And Solomon said unto God, Thou hast shewed great mercy unto David my father, and hast made me to reign in his stead. [9] Now, O Lord God, let thy promise unto David my father be established: for thou hast made me king over a people like the dust of the earth in multitude. [10] Give me now wisdom and knowledge, that I may go out and come in before this people: for who can judge this thy people, that is so great? [11] And God said to Solomon, Because this was in thine heart, and thou hast not asked riches, wealth, or honour, nor the life of thine enemies, neither yet hast asked long life; but hast asked wisdom and knowledge for thyself, that thou mayest judge my people, over whom I have made thee king: [12] Wisdom and knowledge is granted unto thee; and I will give thee riches, and wealth, and honour, such as none of the kings have had that have been before thee, neither shall there any after thee have the like.

Wisdom in the context of our topic goes beyond the frontiers of just living wisely but also living strategically by employing divine principles that will produce wealth and riches. In our modern context, this wisdom might be presented as an idea or witty invention.

Ideas have and will always rule the world. God can inspire in you an idea that can be so revolutionary in its operation that it will not only make you millions and even billions but also be of great value to the world.

Money is a system of exchanging value with currency.

Now comes the crux of the matter that, money is system of exchange. People, systems, organizations only offer money when the perceive value in a person or a thing. So to acquire more money, provide more value either through goods and services. The definition of these two commodities is left for the consumer to describe. But the truth remains static that if and only if you’re able to proffer value, you’ll always been rewarded.

To further increase your chances of receiving more bountiful rewards, be willing to become extremely valuable at a very marketable skill or gift and wait to see the world run to you and offer you gold, silver and precious jewels just to enjoy the privilege of having you share your gift.

Gold and precious jewels in themselves can be bought by a higher spiritual reality. Wisdom!

Proverbs 22:29 KJV
Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men.

The world and the systems that govern it will continuously drive it in the direction of economic hardship and adversity. We must therefore rise with a greater level of wisdom and intelligence to always ride above these tumultuous storms and waves that will be created frequently.

Proverbs 23:4 KJV
Labour not to be rich: cease from thine own wisdom.

We leave with these final words in the above mentioned verse of scripture. Cease from your own wisdom and accede to the wisdom of heaven. God’s system of bailing men out of continuous financial challenges are set in the wisdom of His word.

Be Wise As Serpents

Secret Of Global Domination

Being called a snake or serpent is never a good way to be identfied. Snakes have a long history of being attributed to evil and deception. But I believe the life of a serpent is one thing many should consider and study critically.

A serpent, like many other living organisms has features and characteristics which are peculiar to it only. But beyond those physical and anatomical traits, the serpent is one creature who through time has proven to be not only symbolic of wit and subtlety but powerful and high ranking on the top of nature’s food chain.

Where does the word serpent come from?

The serpent, or snake, is one of the oldest and most widespread mythological symbols. The word is derived from Latin serpens, a crawling animal or snake. Also, borrowed from Old French serpent (“snake, serpent”), from Latin serpēns (“snake”), from the verb serpō (“I creep, crawl”), from Proto-Indo-European *serp-. (Wikipedia 2020)

The short etymology of the word ‘serpent‘ clearly reveals to us that the name was derived by the crawling and creeping motion of this creature which of course is influenced by it’s physical formation and this feature gives it an added advantage over it’s prey and predators alike.

Serpents for centuries have been and worshipped and believed to possess supernatural abilities.

So going further into the detailed physiological features of the serpent, we discover that the snake is:
-has a forked tongue with fangs
-extremely flexible
-awfully exposed with no protective covering apart from scales.

With these looking like weak traits, we consider two of it’s major strengths:
-usually very venomous
-and also very perceptive and subtle

Not having many strengths to engage any form of physical combat, most serpents usually possess lethal poisons which are intended to both emasculate and kill it’s victims within a very short period of time.

Also with limits in the area of physical agility, serpents use their ability to remain in stealth mode consistently to evade and elude their predators.

Only these two traits, have given the serpent a high ground and edge over several other living creatures in the food chain making it one of the most feared and superior beats in the animal kingdom.

So now our story begins with a hair-raising statement made by Jesus Christ in the New Testament.

Matthew 10:16 KJVS

Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.

He, by this utterance ‘be wise as serpents‘, revealed the mystery behind dominion, authority, power, influence and control of superior proportions.

He sent them forth as sheep into a dangerous and wicked world which was designed to oppose and resist their agenda and mission but now admonished his followers and listeners to engage the model of being wise and prudent as serpents.

Our dominion as a people will always be controlled by the quality of information we possess about rulership and territorial influence.

The entire mentorship and discipleship program of Jesus was to introduce his early disciples and many other individuals who would later subscribe to his idealogies to a compendium of the systems and mysteries that control kingdom dominion.

You can never sustain power potent enough to bring a region or territory under your control and influence if you don’t possess a more higher level of wisdom, knowledge and understanding to do so.

A “fallen” angel still holds the title “god of this world.”

2 Corinthians 11:3 KJVS

But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.

2 Corinthians 11:14 KJVS

And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

2 Corinthians 2:11 KJVS

Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.

2 Corinthians 4:4 KJVS

In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

Satan, although fallen, is regarded by the Holy script to be the “god of this world” not because of his desire but by the potency of wisdom that was given him on the day of his creation.

Ezekiel 28:12 KJVS

Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord God ; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty.

Lucifer, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.

On the day of his creation, one of the key ingredients in his composition was WISDOM. This angelic being was encompassed in a dimension of wisdom that made him the choicest of all God’s creation at the time.

So therefore, if we wish and desire to take over the world by influencing it with our culture and idealogies, we must first of all command a great level of wisdom that outranks the gates of hell.

To introduce us to the possibility of acquiring this kind of transformation, the book of Romans 12 verse 2 says,
“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God”.

The journey to fulfulling God’s dominion mandate for the earthman, begins with his spiritual and mental transformation via the ministry of God’s word and Spirit.

Enlightenment and mental transformation remains pivotal to global domination.

Tapping into the hidden wisdom of God which the Lord ordained before the world began unto our glory is cardinal to our experiencing the higher life. This hidden wisdom is our advantage against the many cohorts of darkness.

We, however, can only procure it from the Ancient of Days Himself. He truly is the source of all wisdom. Intimacy is what ushers and initiates us into the quarters of superior power and virtue.

Being Grateful & Staying Grateful

Stay grateful

Looking at life and the many challenges that encompass humanity, it’s always easy to focus on the negatives and define life as painful and hard. Every man, woman, boy or girl can always find the wrongs about their lives.

We consider the many wars, famines, crisis, natural disasters and several other plagues that have ravaged us as a human race and we will easily fall into a deep trench of ingratitude. Just considering how hard it is to make ends meet nowadays, has taken many to their early graves through depression and suicide.

Life is and can be hard most of the times. Not being able to merely provide for your family can be a very tormenting experience as a parent or guardian. And with the many attempts alot of people have seemingly employed to get out of that rut, it still looks as though things are bound to remain unalterable.

But everything that revolves around the existence of humanity if carefully considered has a modus operandi:meaning a system of operation which if engaged has tremendous results attached to it.
Wisdom, according to the Holy script, is the principal thing. He further admonishes us to get wisdom and also to get understanding.

We all need these two spiritual commodities to enable us live a rather productive, fruitful and happy life.
So therefore, in the area of constantly focusing on the negatives and dark events and seasons of life, we are encouraged in the New Testament to always give thanks to the Lord in all things.

Ephesians 5:20 KJVS
Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;

2 Thessalonians 2:13 KJVS
But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you,…….

1 Thessalonians 5:18 KJVS
In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

Contemplating deeply on the bible verse listed above now brings us to a major secret and key about the abundant life we all desire to live and also experience.

You can never have a better life if you don’t appreciate what you already have .”

Gratitude and being grateful is one of the secrets to wealth, abundance and living a fulfilling life. Many of us are incessantly trapped in ingratitude and are always focused on what we don’t have and what is currently out of our reach.

The wisdom required in this instance is to learn to be always grateful and thankful even in the midst of lack and deprivation of any kind.
Jesus at one time had only the lunch of a young boy which included five (5) loaves of bread and two (2) fishes. He with this petit provision was required to feed thousands of very hungry people at the time.

The easiest way out for Him would have been to disperse the crowd and make everyone go back to their various homes and also complain bitterly to his friends and disciples concerning the lack at hand. But He being the written word in flesh went back to the very kingdom principles that control heavenly supply to earthmen.

Jesus gave thanks for the little supply and received a greater one.

Bible says, He gave thanks for that quantity and just within minutes if not seconds, there was a major miracle and testimony which was too remarkable to ignore in all four gospels.

The same author of the entire script and exhibitor of that miracle now through His Holy Spirit tells us in latter books that, being grateful and staying so is one of the systems that controls our supply.

Now therefore, after reading this whole script, we implore you to make this act of gratitude a daily act and ultimately a habit. The results are assured and will definitely follow your diligence of operating this spiritually intelligent act.

Find things on a daily basis to be grateful and thankful for. Whether it’s your job, house, car, spouse, children, finance,health,welfare et al. Make sure you find at least three(3) to five (things) in a day you can be genuinely grateful.

Life is short and beautiful and trust me it won’t be worth it if you die as an ungrateful being. So chin up, face forward, smile hard and look on the bright side. There are many things to be grateful for.

“I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought; and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.” G.K. Chesterton

Look for them all and you’ll discover that it’s good to be alive.
