In our dispensation, political leaders are not chosen by God but elected by the people. In a democracy, the will of the people is upheld. In a democracy, God does not elect leaders but the people do and God recognizes whoever was elected as the leader. God may not approve of it but will recognize the leader because He respects the will of the people.

I believe marriage is not about two single pieces of material sewn together; it is about thousands of threads of life-experiences from two people woven together as one. So, I waited to find the person with the right threads, the ones that were suitable for our unique marriage tapestry. The result is we are creating a beautiful history together that stems from a love that finds its roots in mutual respect.
The sad truth is, we are kept in ignorance with the prevailing teaching which tells us to sow money as seed faith to activate God’s power and receive from Him. BY THIS TEACHING, GOD HAS BEEN PRESENTED AS A FATHER WHO SELLS HIS GIFTS, BLESSINGS, HEALINGS, FAVOURS, TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER AMONG HIS SONS AND DAUGHTERS.
We may belittle the abilities, the power, the majesty, the excellency, and the glory that we carry as God’s Temple. But as we grow in the consciousness of the greater One in us, the power of the Godhead that has taken residence in us, the anointing within and upon us, we will begin to have faith not in ourselves, but in His gracious acts, and lay hands on seekers as we’re divinely equipped to do, and as and when the Spirit leads.
My heart’s desire and prayer to God is, ministers will begin to appreciate the importance of impartation and give this act its rightful place in the Church as the Spirit leads.
There are three major ways by which impartation happens to us. A divine impartation or transfer may come directly from God upon believers for them to fulfill a common goal. For instance, when the burden of leadership was becoming too heavy on Moses’ life, he cried out to God about this. God’s response was to get Moses to gather together 70 men of the elders of Israel (Numbers 11:16 – 17).
Without a doubt, the anointing we’ve received in Christ can be maintained and increased in our lives. But it can’t be maintained or increased because someone poured oil on our heads or we anointed ourselves. Honestly, if we can grow in the anointing this way, by someone anointing us with oil, then it will be necessary for local churches to construct anointing oil pools for their members to swim or dive in for greater grace and power.
Now, one may ask this particularly important question: Why should Apostle James admonish us to anoint the sick with oil in his epistle?
14 Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord.15 And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.
Graciously in Christ, the Father Himself has anointed us. Besides the anointing on ministry gifts that we have received, we all have been made kings and priests unto God. And the Father Himself has consecrated us into these offices in Christ.
Bishop Agyin-Asare said even though some people wonder if vow renewals are necessary, “for me it is like rededicating your life to the Lord. I think that it matters to affirm to your wife and assure her or your husband that: ‘Look, the years ahead of us, we’re going to spend it together’. And, as you do, God will confirm your word because what you say is what you get”.
“So while we are concerned about the health hazard, its time for us to think about how to bounce back from the impact that it has had on us, on our jobs, on our businesses on our social interactions and our whole view of life. So much of what I say is to encourage you to know how to face life through this catastrophe that has befallen our world.”
