“The Reason” To “Go Deeper” – Secret Toluwanimee Won’t Tell About Forthcoming Album Revealed!

 

With the release of the new single “The Reason”, Toluwanimee set in motion the journey towards the premiere of the debut album “Go Deeper”.

She had announced the release of the album last year May, after she dropped the single “WOW”, which was produced by Wilz, but natal care and the events that followed had slowed down the process of getting the album out. This birthed the release of the single “The Reason” where Toluwanimee laconically told the testimony that led to the release of the single, thereby, explaining why the album was delayed.

You have heard the words ‘man proposes, God disposes’ by the 15th-century author, Thomas Kempis. This is true because as Toluwanimee was making plans for the album God needed to use a season in her life to get testimony out, which will be a pillar of strength for many. Toluwanimee is a worshipper and would have done so, even in her sleep but by divine providence, she received a deeper epiphany for her worship. Reiterating the premise, Toluwanimee said:

“About 6 months ago, God delivered me from serious health complications. Honestly, I didn’t need a reason because worship is what I was born to do but he gave me a season and another reason so here now I am singing his praises. This is the inspiration behind ‘The Reason’“ .

As it stands, “The Reason” will be ushering the “Go Deeper” album in. If you are familiar with Toluwanimee’s music, then there is every reason to be excited!

Her music which sits in the Contemporary – sometimes Urban – Christian music genre has seen a wide range of the best hands in sound crafting including Wilson Joel, Wilz, Sunny Pee and more. It goes without saying that Toluwanimee does not play down on excellence. Her vocal prowess and piercing pitch is also a signature. You cannot hear Toluwanimee’s music and be second-guessing. Moreover, the lyrical richness of her music shows that her spiritual encounters are reflected in her music. More than once, She has narrated how some of her songs were birthed and one constant element is the secret place factor.

“Forever,” “Sekki,” “Miracle God,” “Ultimate Price,” “Lord Today,” and “WOW” are some of the singles which have left indelible marks on the Gospel terrain, not only because of the excellence and professionalism but also for their timeliness. So if Toluwanimee can get the essence of her message right with her singles, because of the God-factor, rest assured there will be more on the album… little wonder its titled “Go Deeper”

There is more for Toluwanimee, there is more for you! Toluwanimee’s underlying theme is that you need to go deeper on this journey with Jesus and the tracks on the album are necessary companies on this journey! Hence, Psalm 107:24 says:

“They saw the deeds of the LORD, his wondrous works in the deep”

More details about Reinhard Bonnke Farewell Crusade in Nigeria (November 2017)

Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke, who happen to be the founder of Christ for all Nations (CFAN) will be coming to Nigeria for his final African Crusade in Nov. 2017.

Even though it is not really the final CFaN final African Crusade, the return of the world renowned Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke could also inspire another historical global attendance as that of the Lagos State in the year 2000, which was tag Nigeria Millennium Crusade.

This Crusade has been CFaN’s largest Crusade to date.

 

 

It was recorded that during the Lagos Millennium crusade in the year 2000, in the course of five nights over six (6) million people were in attendance, and 3.4 million decisions were also made for Christ.

CfaN in general anticipates that many decisions will also be made for Christ in response to the farewell Crusade of the great evangelist farewell message in this part of the world.

John Darku, the CfaN’s African Director, shared that; this crusade will be like none we have seen before. He made known that they are currently planning to recruit 500,000 counselors, 200,000 intercessors, a choir of over 23,000 and a security force of over 10,000, As they made known that they are expecting a spectacular harvest of souls for Christ our Lord Jesus.

He also made known that, CfaN will be releasing information about the crusade for those who will be will to be part of this glorious gathering. It recorded that the current population of Lagos State is about 20 million people currently, which they have chosen to be the converging point in Nigeria, so the potential magnitude of this coming is breathtaking to really consider.

The lead evangelist of CfaN and the successor to the world renowned evangelist Reinhard Bonnke, Daniel Kolenda also made his own comment about this coming event; he said he was thrilled to join with Reinhard Bonnke  in this vision, and know that the results of this crusade will be even more that what anyone could think of or imagine, he made known that ever since God gave Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke the vision for blood-washed Africa a continent washed in the blood of Jesus Christ over 40years ago, he has been filled with a burning commitment to win the continent Africa for Jesus Christ.

Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke has said “Whether I am eating or drinking, awake or asleep, the vision is ever present. Since then, he and the CfaN team have organized events in Africa that have grown from humble handfuls of attendees to the winning of over 76million registered decisions for Christ in Africa since 1987.

Today, with much gratitude for what God has achieved through him, Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke shares that;

The lord spoke to him that he should go back for one more crusade in Africa. He also said he didn’t only want to see a gigantic harvest of souls in the coming crusade, but to pass my burning torch to this generation.

He made known that he came to Nigeria recently to meet with Spiritual Leadership there, and they gave their unanimous support.

He made known that he strongly believe that God will be doing something that we have never seen before in this coming Crusade.

How Should I Talk with My Kids about Racism and the History of Slavery? – Jim Daly

 

I think it’s critical to talk about those things, but I would say the first step is to take action if you want to be a role model for your children. Why don’t you invite a family of a different color over to your home for lunch or dinner, and sit around the table, and just talk? Don’t talk about the big issues, don’t talk about history and all those things, just have a normal discussion with friends. I think that’s a great first place to start, and then from that, building with your kids about, these people are no different from us, other than the color of their skin. They have the same desires, the same hopes, whether you’re black or white or Latino or Asian, it doesn’t matter. That’s one of the things I’m looking at with my own boys, is putting them into culturally rich, diverse situations, and talking to them about that.

Of course, we’re talking about Charlottesville, Jean and I with our teenagers, what’s happening in that context, why the angst? I think their initial reaction as children is to say, “Why do they want to pull down statues?” They don’t get the whole context of that. I think we can all have differences of opinions on these things, but where is the love of Christ? How do we treat each other with the respect that Jesus would desire from us? I think the church has a lot to atone for, historically, because we were rather silent during the civil rights marches, etc. God’s scriptures were twisted to use slavery in a way that was evil.

The other side of it though, is an understanding I think too, that when you’re talking to your kids, I think I saw a survey where 100% of high school students in the US thought slavery started and was only in the United States. So that is a tragic misunderstanding of global history. And the fact that slavery was really a modality that most conquering nations, tribes, etc used to build their own economies, whatever it might’ve been. Even the native Americans in the United States had slaves within their tribes, so it was a part of human history. Today we still have sex trafficking, another form of human slavery today. So there’s just something in the heart of humanity that leans in that direction, but we are making progress. I think we gotta continue to build on the progress that was made, even though we will have difficulty getting further ahead.

5 Things “PowerFlow Videos” Compilation Reveals About Monique! 


Spaghetti Records released the compilation video titled “PowerFlow Videos” for Gospel music minister Monique in July. The video goes beyond putting together the works of the wave making Gospel music artiste but also shows her personality in a dynamic way.

They say a picture can tell a thousand words, how many do you, then think we can learn from a motion picture where the object of interest speaks at varying degrees about her ministry and personality?

We met forehand the professional singer and the anointed minister. We are giving a first seat view into how the 2 elements come together to create excellence in her ministry. Monique speaks on how this uniqueness makes her work a tool for evangelism creating a platform for the Holy Spirit to manifest.

Monique gets more personal as she takes us back to her debut into the music ministry. The hit song “Oba Gbogbo Aiye” is a testimony of the saving grace of God but the amazing thing is the fact that the whole world is singing this testimony with Monique, thereby birthing even a greater testimony. Monique is simply grateful that she is able to put the praise of God on the lips of people all around the world.

As a family oriented person, Monique gives praises to God for the lives around her. She speaks explicitly about the certain members of her family of whom she is grateful to God for their presence in her life, and how their influence has impressed on her qualities.

Due to the multi faceted persona of this music diva, it’s easy to create a frame for her in one’s mind. Monique also set this straight without making a frantic effort to justify herself. She opened up the scope that makes up Monique and leaves the audience with the privilege of making conclusion based on this scope.

“It is very easy to watch my videos and conclude on who I am, it is also very easy to read about me in some certain places and conclude on who I am… but I am more than [what you see on] the surface” – Monique.

Victories are certainly motivation that makes us believe God for greater testimonies. The same is true for the Gospel music diva. Being a wife, a mother, a child and a student can definitely weigh on a ministry such as that of a singer but Monique tells us the secret behind her balance – but you will have to watch the video to find out.

The video is definitely an expository into the ministry and personality of Monique, which cannot be exhausted in a single write-up. It is not everyday we get to meet a music minister face-to-face and this compilation provides us with such opportunity, one you will like to keep around you for a long time!

5 Uncomfortable Issues The Church Needs to Talk About

It has been said that the Church is not a museum of saints, but a hospital for sinners. Yet, most of us would much rather pretend to be a saint on display than call for an ambulance.

Week after week, many of us walk into a church, sit by people we have known for years and yet would never dream of sharing our innermost struggles with. While a large part of this is our pride, another factor is a Church that seems unwilling to talk about certain uncomfortable issues, choosing rather to ignore them, try to cover them up or simply reject people who bring them up.

There are many issues the Church as a whole needs to address, such as creationism, activism, environmental stewardship and many others. But there are many more issues that individuals in the Church are dealing with—issues that the Church Body should be talking about. In Galatians 6:2, Paul urged the Church to “Bear each other’s burdens,” so maybe with more grace and love we can turn on the light in the darkened rooms of each other’s hearts and let our churches become safe havens for the uncomfortable things we have to deal with.

Many of these issues need to be dealt with professionally first. But that should not be the end of it. Research shows just listening to someone and showing them you genuinely care for their situation can be a huge part of that person’s healing process.

This is far from a comprehensive list—these are a few of the issues many people in churches around the world are dealing with, whether they admit it or not. And as people increasingly leave the Church, often over issues such as these, it is becoming more urgent that the Church talk about how to care for every one of its members.

Addiction

At AA meetings and therapy sessions, talking about addiction makes sense, but for some reason, it’s not a topic most church people want to hear about. Certain addictions are definitely more socially acceptable to talk about than others. For example, it’s OK to bug Frank about his smoking, but John’s alcoholism is more hush-hush.

And yes, in many churches, a person’s addictions can become fodder for gossip. However, if the Church were to first approach one another as family, then addicts in the Church might feel safer to be vulnerable about their struggles. Often, they just need to be loved and feel safe enough to know they can expose this part of themselves in a community where the addiction isn’t crushing them every second.

Sexuality

Sex and sexuality tends to be a loaded topic in the Church. Certain corners of the Church have been very vocal in their broad condemnation of premarital sex, but that’s where the conversation (for lack of a better word) tends to stop. We rarely engage the topic of sex on a personal, individual level. There’s a generally accepted idea floating around that, once two people are married, they enter into a carefree, blissful lifetime of sexual fulfillment that needs never be discussed in any meaningful way.

There are strong believers struggling with their sexual identity, brokenness and frustration in churches across the world, and among their Christian friends and families, they don’t dare say a word about it.

 

I know of a few people in my life who love Christ and want to abstain from sin, but they are struggling with sexual sin or sinful desires. There are married couples for whom waiting to have sex turned out to be the easy part, as both parties brought into their marriage a series of expectations that turned out to be flawed. There are very few people they can share this with, but that also means they carry this burden alone. If many churches stopped treating sexual issues as a personal choice, where it could be turned on or off like a light-switch, then maybe we could start to create more safe places where people can share their burdens with each other and find out they’re not alone.

Sincere Doubt

In many churches today, there are Christians, even pastors, who are struggling with doubt. They have absorbed all the recommended apologetics. They havecried out in prayer. They are struggling to believe that God is good or that He’s there at all, yet they continue with the motions. They put on the smile while setting up the coffee table. They mouth along to the words in the worship songs, but it all feels hollow to them. I know this because I’ve been one of these people.

One of the most vital ways the Church can handle doubt is to stop acting like everything about faith is obvious. The Church can recognize that we all have doubts from time to time, but we cling to a hope that’s beyond rational explanation. Churches can also stop trying to hide the hard parts of the Bible under the rug or downplay the significance these ethically questionable parts play in a person’s doubt.

Mental Illness

Those in our midst who deal with mental illness, either personally or second-hand, are typically silent about the struggles they experience. In our society, there still exist a lot of stereotypes about mental illness, and because people either don’t want to deal with it or they’ve been hurt, they will choose to avoid opening up about it. The problem is, if these issues go untalked about, then they often will go unresolved.

In some churches, people who do reveal their illness will go without professional help in lieu of prayer. When prayer doesn’t work, the person dealing with mental illness feels like a failure or like they don’t have enough faith. The Church needs to create an encouraging environment where people can be directed to right help and then receive spiritual healing alongside their physical healing.

Loneliness

There are droves of lonely people in the church, and that includes senior pastors and priests. The isolation comes from a lack of identification and identification comes through open communication. When we can be vulnerable and honest with one another, we understand each other in a profound way.

A lonely person may walk in to a church alone and leave alone each Sunday. Although they appreciate the free coffee and donuts the fellowship hall offers, what they really want is fellowship. Taking time to get to know the people around you and then reaching out to them outside of the church will allow for a greater, more stable community.

Of course, every church is different and while one church may be stronger in one area, it may be weaker in others. These are just a few issues that we as the Church Body need to be willing to address. And as we talk about them, we must remember to address them with humility, understanding and grace, keeping in mind our role as fellow hospital patients, not museum curators.
