INTRODUCTION
it all started in my first year in the university, I was in my faculty studying trigonometry, when I heard an audible voice say to me, Son, you are the you in you that makes you the you that you are. The voice was normal enough except that it wore a ring of authority around it that made it impossible to ignore. I looked back, sure that someone was talking to me, but the few other students in the room were either engrossed in what they were reading or just minding their own business. Having been taught about the realities of the new creation and the Person of the Holy Spirit, I realized that it was the Holy Spirit that was talking to me. It was so real, so personal and so 'everyday'; but then what I heard sounded so round about that I didn't quite get what it was all about. So I asked, Lord, what do you mean? He said it again. What really got my attention was the tone of His voice. He did not whisper or use that ethereal voice that film makers always associate with God. He used the voice of a man. Now, I understand why the boy Samuel mistook the voice of God for the voice of Eli three times. The Holy Spirit spoke to me in a voice I could relate with. For the space of an hour and thirty minutes, He expounded the principle of the You in You to me. He made me realize that what you are outside is only a reflection of what you are inside. In

other words, whatever you are in life today is as a result of what you are inside. So what you are inside is more important than what you are outside. Jesus taught that if we want the outside of the cup to be clean, we should make the inside clean first Matt.23:26). But the order of things in the world today is the other way round. We reason that if you want the outside of the cup to be clean, then you have to clean the outside of the cup. But the all knowing Lord taught otherwise. This is why we must understand this principle so that our progress in life can be without hindrance or limitation. What then is this you in you? The you in you is your spirit. There is something very instructive I would love to bring to our notice. It is in Job chapter 32 verse 8 and it reads: But there is a spirit in man: the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding. The word 'inspiration' in the above scripture is translated from the Hebrew word 'neshamah' meaning 'wind' or 'breath'. It is only the spirit in man that can connect with God by receiving His breath or inspiration. When this spirit is neglected, then the outward manifestation will reflect it. In Proverbs 20:27, we read again that 'the spirit of man is the candle of the Lord'. This means that if we do not take care of our spirit, the Lord will have no candle to light up and our lives will be overshadowed with darkness. It is therefore, very important and vital to train the spirit man which is the real you. How do we do that?Y ou may ask. That's what this book will be dwelling on. It takes two actions: refusing negative information and accepting positive information.

I have endeavored in the following pages to share this brief, but wonderful encounter with the Holy Spirit. And I have since realized that I do not have the words to adequately capture it with the same impact that it made on me. I am, however, consoled by the fact that even though Elisha could not travel in the chariot of fire with Elijah, he got a double portion of Elijah's anointing. It is my prayer that by the Spirit, you would see more than my hand could ever have written and have a deeper encounter with the Holy Spirit that would make you take over your world to be the best that God has designed you to be.

Chapter 2 The You in You

Makes You The You That You Are


The Best in You in You The Best in
Philosophers are known to have beautiful ways of phrasing thoughts. It was one of them that said 'whatever moves is moved by something else'. And this is so true. We know by commonsense that you don't need to cut the limbs after you have cut off the head; because even though it is the limbs that move the body about, once the head is off the limbs will cease to move. In other words, the limbs are not just moving on their own; the head does have something to do with it. And without the head, the limbs are dead. Truly, whatever moves is moved by something else.

We can apply this same principle to almost anything. Things are not just as simple and straight forward as they appear. There is a hidden source or cause behind the things we see. Just as the life of a tree is hidden in its roots, the real YOU is not on the surface, but if we dig deep enough, we would discover what makes you tick which we may call the YOU in you. It is this YOU in you that makes you the you (person) that you are. Don't mind the many you's or 'U turns'. Focus on the big Y OU and all the other you's will fall into place. Jesus said in Matthew 12:33:
Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit.

We must not forget that Jesus was talking about people; He only used the tree for illustration. Every man is like a tree. Every tree is known by its fruit. But then this all-important fruit does not determine itself. Whether the fruit is good or bad depends on the tree and whether the tree is good or bad depends on something else. That something else is the essence of the tree or what we may call the YOU in you! Jesus said that you can make the tree good or bad and once you have done that, you can be sure of what harvest or kind of fruits to expect. But we need to take a look at that YOU that makes the tree good or bad; the YOU that moves every thing that

moves every thing else in your life. That is the YOU in you and that Y OU is what really determines who you are. It must be really important to know this person. In Proverbs chapter 4 verse 23, we have a strong admonition.
Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.

There is something inside you that controls and determines every thing else. It is so important because it is the source of other things in your life. That is why we are told to keep it with all diligence. I'm sure you got the clue. Does that mean that our heart is theY OU we have been carrying on about all along? Well, yes, depending on what you understand the heart to mean. But know that the meaning of a word is far bigger than what any dictionary can offer.Y ou may be able to write a good essay or pass an exam with dictionary meanings, but life requires much more than that. Take for example, the word 'water' which we all would generally acknowledge as 'a clear, thin liquid, lacking taste or smell, and essential for life'. But when you are a man running under the rain to attend an interview or a little girl carrying a bag of salt on her head under the rain, water would mean something different from that of a thirsty

dehydrated man in the desert praying for a drink of water. To you, water would definitely be a bother or an unwanted complication in the pursuit of a better life; but to the other man, it would be the only hope of life and continued existence. The two of you are bound to respond differently to the word 'water'. Our experience can alter or deepen the meaning of a word. So also can divine revelation, but we shall come to that later. Jesus asked His disciples 'whom do men say that I the Son of man am?'. On hearing their response, He asked again, 'But whom say ye that I am?'(Matt. 16:13-15) because He knew that the same thing can mean different things to different people. And that difference in meaning can be the difference that makes all the difference. What we see and what we hear determine what we say and what we do in life. And we know that what we say and do determine what we get. But all of these depend on how we see or hear. It is the YOU in you that must hear right in order to do right. It is therefore important that we patiently go through God's Word which is the Creator's manual and the mirror of our spirit as we undertake this journey of selfdiscovery. The journey would be made more worthwhile if we already had a hunger in our hearts

to know who we really are. This is usually contained in the form of a question within us: who am I? It may be phrased differently, but it is usually an expression of a desire to make meaning out of life and the things that are happening around us. Why are things the way they are? Why am I the way I am? Why do I attract the kind of people I attract? And, why do I get the kind of results I get? Have you ever asked yourself such questions? If you have, then you have started a most important journey in life that of self discovery. However big or small you consider yourself to be, you experience life as an individual; and knowledge of that person through whom you touch the world and through whom the world touches you is central to your life. Life relates to you according to the understanding of who you know you are. Somebody said that you dress as you want to be addressed. The things you say and how you say them as well as the things you do and how you do them flow from an understanding of who you are. Now, this knowledge is very important and without it, one may become like flotsam and jetsam on the sea of life thrown about by the ever falling and rising waves. Such a person becomes a chameleon that assumes the color of its environment losing its

identity in the process. He begins to think that he is what is happening to him. So when the tides are up, he is high and when they are low, he is down. Rather than being controlled and overrun, you are supposed to determine where you are going. Until you discover and know this YOU, you will not walk in the light of it. Let us return to the subject of the heart out of which flows the issues of life. The heart is the spirit of man and that spirit is the man. We have been told by some theologians that man is a tripartite being meaning that man has a three-part personality consisting of spirit, soul and body. That perspective can be misleading. Man is not a tripartite being; man is a spirit being. This is like saying, for example, that Charles is a man, he has a library, and he lives in a mansion, Charles is not a mansion even though he lives in a mansion. Charles is not a library even though he has one. Charles is a man. So the spirit is not a soul neither is it a body. He is a spirit! And man is a spirit. You are a spirit! Don't ever forget that. i. The SPIRIT is the YOU which cannot function in the earth until it has a body. ii. The SOUL is the connection between the spirit and the body. It has to do with the will,

emotions, feelings, and thoughts of the individual. iii. The BODY is the physical house of the spirit which is the real YOU i.e. the body is your dwelling place; your domicile; where your spirit lives to function in the earth. (Rom. 12:1) When God created man he formed man from the dust of the ground and breathed into man and he became a living Soul.
And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living Soul. (Genesis 2:7)

There are two important factors to note in Genesis chapter 1:


And God said, let us make man in our image, after our likeness... (verse 26)

These are the factors that determined the human blueprint. They are His image and likeness. And to understand what man should be, we must understand what these mean. The creation of man in the Old Testament is very significant for us in the New Testament. When God said let us make man in our own image and likeness, what God was actually saying was 'let's make

man to look like us, and also to have our character.' The image of God refers to God's makeup and constitution; it means we are God's replica. The likeness of God refers to the character of God. It means we were made to function like God in this world (1John 4:17). In all of God's creation, man is the only being on the face of the earth that is designed to function like God. As a result, God gave him authority and dominion over every animate and inanimate thing on the earth (Genesis 1:26).
I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High. (Psalm 82:6)

Among the attributes of God that He put into man is the power to choose. In other words, man is a free moral agent just like God! Ever since man became a living soul, he has had the power of will, which is one major factor that controls the world at large the will of a soul. The Power of the Human Will The will is defined as the mental faculty by which a person decides upon and controls his or her actions. It is also responsible for the determination of a person's attitude to situations and circumstances. If it could be said that our choices and actions

determine our success and failure in life, then it could also be said that the exercise of the will is central to the success or failure of every man in the earth. But there is an interesting twist to this. When one becomes born again his will, and therefore, choices in life will become swallowed up in Jesus Christ. This is not academic; it is so fundamental that it is the basis of the new life. You are not your own, you are bought with a price and you have the mind of Christ.
For who hath known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ (1 Corinthians 2:16).

When you have the mind of the Master, your will and actions will be based on what Christ thinks.Y ou will not make wrong choices and therefore, cannot fail. All you need to do is to become conscious of this truth and begin to walk in its reality for that is who you are meant to be!

The Real You


But refuse profane and old wives' fables and exercise thyself rather unto godliness. For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having

promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come. (1Timothy 4:7-8)

All you will ever need or require in this life is inside you. Paul rightly used the word godliness in his letter to Timothy, which comes from the Greek word eusebeia or piety meaning godly reverence and referring to the things that you do in reverence to God that people can see and know that you are a child of God. We are spirit beings and God is the Father of spirits because we came from Him (John 4:24). All you will ever require to live a successful and godly life is in your spirit. The houses, cars, money, etc are inside you, so why do we have people suffering in penury and lack, someone may ask? Until you train your spirit and live your life from inside out, life will be hell on earth. The Bible says:
According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having

escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. (2 Peter 1:3-4).

The knowledge of who you are is required for you to pull out all that God has given you from the spirit to the physical, and it's only through the knowledge of God's word. Perhaps, it's pertinent to add that the human spirit, which is the real you is ageless and has lived from age to age, from generation to generations and will live for eternity. God told Jeremiah, Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee (Jeremiah 1:5). That is so remarkable. It means that this guy had been in existence with God before he was formed. It means that as Jesus came out from God and was formed in the belly of a woman so also were we in God and formed in the belly. Glory to God! (John 17:8; Galatians 4:4). Everything that you will ever use in the physical world already exists in the spirit realm. You already have them, all the money you will ever require, be it in US Dollars, Pounds, Euro, Rand or whatever currency, you have them already! But wait a minute, brother! It's your responsibility to pull them out from inside to your physical world. It's not in line with God's word for us to operate as

beggarly Christians; begging and asking God for this and that, saying 'Do it Lord! Do it Lord!' Friend, He is not going to do anything because He has done everything! The Bible says:
He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. (John 7:38)

So let the rivers flow as is written of you; you are a source and supplier, not a beggar! You don't have to feel it. You don't need your physical realities to agree with it; it is in you!

The Real Time


When we come to the understanding of who we are and what we are capable of through the inner man, our physical realities begin to look like a contradiction. Somebody may even query our claim to so much when we may presently have so little in the physical. This would bring us to a very important element in the manifestation of spiritual realities, the element of time. Time is the platform upon which physical life is expressed; and it's only within time that purpose can be achieved. There are two dimensions of time; chronological time or Chronos and spiritual time or kairos.

Kairos () is an ancient Greek word meaning the right or opportune moment (the supreme moment). The ancient Greeks had two words for time, chronos and kairos. While the former refers to chronological or sequential time, the latter signifies a time in between, a moment undetermined period of time in which something special happens. This is what the Bible refers to as the 'set time'. While chronos is quantitative, kairos has a qualitative nature. Chronos is interested in how much time, while kairos is interested in what was achieved. Kairos is the real time; the Bible calls it the 'set time' or 'appointed time' because it is the time that purpose is achieved. At kairos, demand and supply collide; preparation meets opportunity. Brethren, there is a set time for the You to be unveiled; it could be anytime within the chronos or sequence of time. In time, spirit realities are brought into the physical world. The spirit realm knows no time, but in the earth, time and seasons are regulated. The Bible says:
Thou shalt arise, and have mercy upon Zion: for the time to favour her, yea, the set time, is come. (Psalm 102:13)

That's why it's important for you to frame your world using the right words. What do you see with the eyes of your spirit? That's the Real stuff. Disregard the things you see with your optical eyes, for they will surely fade away like a mirage, but what you can hold on to in your spirit will surely come to being because the spirit realm governs the physical realm. (2 Corinthians 4:18) The things which are seen are subject to change, but the things which are in the spirit are real. Now, begin to call forth those things that be not as though they were. Live your life from inside, and then you are sure of constant success and victory 24hours a day. That is why my tongue doesn't seize from talking the realities of the Spirit. I always practice talk sessions everyday. I will lock myself up in my room talking for hours every day. When I walk the streets, I love talking, I may look insane at the moment to someone, but I don't care because I'm talking out my spirit me to my outward me. Most times when I'm in my room, I always like talking right before the mirror. I place the mirror right in front of me, now all I see at that time is a man that the world is waiting for, ready with all alacrity to be unleashed against every onslaught.

I see a man that is dominating nations and subduing kingdoms, I may be running a comb through my hair or adjusting my shirt, then I prophecy and speak coded language to the man I see in the mirror because I know that is the man going everywhere to happen. A man full of success, a man who knows no struggle, a man that will stand tall among the richest in the globe; that is the man I always see. This is no exaggerations, this is for real: a lot of time, I will stretch out my hands towards that man in the mirror and speak God's blessings on him. Then suddenly, I will be so full of the Spirit and fall under the anointing of the Holy Ghost. Now I understand what the Holy Spirit was saying to me years ago, that you are the only one of you that God has out of over six billion people on the face of the earth, there are no two you in the world. You are sharing no finger prints with anyone else in the whole wide world. You are unique!

THE BEST IN YOU

THE GOLD MIND


The most successful people in the world do very little thinking yet achieve so much, and this is an affirmative truth. Now, I'm not talking about 'think and grow rich.' I know that there are people who think like that; that as they think they get rich. But, that is not correct! Prosperity is less a product of thinking than it is of the mindset or state of one's mind. The results we get in life are always consistent with or dependent on our mindset. Just as a faulty camera cannot produce a good image, a man with the wrong mindset cannot 'think and grow rich'. Thinking is not the issue; every mind thinks, but the result is always in accordance with the mindset or state of the mind. The world today is full of poor and suffering people; people sick in mind and body; people who cannot help being poor right in the midst of plenty! The truth is that there are no poor countries in the world. Some of the poorest countries of the world are the most naturally endowed, but the lack of capacity to manage their blessings has left them in poverty. We can readily find examples in countries like the DR Congo with its immense variety of natural resources; and Nigeria with its great oil wealth, population and other blessings.

Some of the richest countries of the world have very little or no natural resources, but the possession of the right mindset have lifted them from a seeming disadvantaged position to one of wealth and respect. One such example is Japan with more natural challenges than blessings, but the right mindset has cancelled these setbacks. As it is with nations, so it is with individuals. There are truly no poor or rich people; only mindsets. Poverty is the state of the mind, when a man is poor, his poverty is the outside expression of his mindset i.e. his mental disposition or inclination. When a man is poor in his mind, it doesn't matter where he lives or the car he drives, it's just a matter of time before poverty takes hold of him because he is already poor inside. So it doesn't matter how you tend or try to help a poor person, you will be wasting your precious time because your money and charitable donations will not help him come out of that state, until you change the state of his mind you will not be doing him any good. Today, governments are talking about 'Poverty Eradication Programmes' by paying fractured attention to the manifestations of poverty without addressing the root cause of poverty. How

can they eradicate poverty among people who are poor in their minds just by giving tokens or appearances of prosperity? I don't think they know what they are talking about. I have seen people who won lotteries or came into money by chance and immediately join the league of the wealthy only to return to poverty after a brief excursion in the region of the rich. The only cure and antidote for poverty is the word of God! It is only the word of the Creator that can transform the mind and give it the right perspective and focus. Until a person has the right orientation and his mindset is rightly programmed to think success and prosperity, he will fail and will always beg.
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. ( Romans 12:2)

Now, we are talking about the mind, the power of the gold mind. Some people have become successful by learning to train their minds to think in a certain direction, irrespective of the challenges. A gold mind is a mind with the right mindset, programmed and focused to produce what you want.

Your imaginative power is your creative ability - Chris Oyakhilome

Your imaginative power is your creative ability. This means that your creative dexterity or capacity to create is dependent on the power of your imagination. It is interesting to know that man is exactly like the monarch of the universe, we have been given the power to create the kind of world we want to live in. So many times, I ponder about the beauty in man that causes him to do what he does and go where he goes. That beauty is what the Bible calls 'wisdom'. It is a force, a propelling force that makes you who you are. In 1Corinthians 3:19, the Bible talks about the wisdom of this world and the wisdom of God. In a documentary titled, 'The Secret Law of Attraction', quantum physicist, Dr. John Hagelin said that with all the inventions of man in the world today, man has only lived to use 3.5% of the human wisdom that God has placed inside man. And it's calculated that if Jesus should tarry for the next 1000 years, man will not have used more than 5% of the capacity that quality education has put at his disposal. This is so amazing, it shows how mighty and great God is because we were made to function like him

(Genesis 1:26). Man is created to have the God kind of mind which I choose to call the gold mind. Gold is described as a yellow piece of metal with great and high value while mind refers to that thing inside man that provides him with consciousness and intelligence as well as ability to think and reason. Together, gold mind is consciousness, intelligence and mental capacities of great and high value. That refers to a mind that consistently produces highly valuable results. The value of your mind i.e. what makes it golden is your mindset. Mindset is defined as the fixed mental attitude and the disposition of one's response to situations and circumstances. It is a fixed attitude of your mind. That is to say, you are likely to act in a certain way given a certain mindset. Interestingly, 'mindset' can be linked to a certain Greek word 'phronesis' which means 'practical wisdom', knowledge of the proper ends of life as distinguished from theoretical knowledge and mere means-end reasoning. In the video Three Kinds of Wisdom, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome teaches us that phronesis is the third and highest level of wisdom. It is the God kind of wisdom; the wisdom that set all of creation on

course by the spoken word of God. There is a depth in you that you may never reach or know until you search deep inside you, and it is only by phronesis. In order to put this in perspective, we may have to look at the three levels of wisdom. 1. Sophia is the first kind of wisdom. It is the wisdom that you receive when you come to Christ or become born again. The Bible says:
But of him are ye in Christ Jesus who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, andsanctification,and redemption: (1Corinthians 1:30)

Jesus Christ has become our sophia. 2. Sunesis is the second level of wisdom. It is the wisdom that gives you comprehension, and it also gives critical, analytical knowledge. It is also the knowledge that comes with reasoning. 3. Phronesis is the third and highest level of wisdom, it is the wisdom that has high understanding, and it is also known as practical wisdom.
Sunesis gives you Theoretical wisdom Phronesis gives you Practical wisdom

The Bible says:


And God gave Solomon wisdom and understanding exceeding much, and

largeness of heart, even as the sand that is on the sea shore. (1kings 4:29)

The Greek Septuagint translates wisdom and understanding as 'phronesis' and 'sunesis'. Solomon could not have received sophia wisdom as Jesus had not been made 'Sophia' or 'wisdom' unto men, since Solomon lived before Christ was made manifest in the flesh; Solomon could not have been born again. So what made Solomon the wisest man that ever lived on the face of the earth before Jesus came? It was the level of his phronesis; his fixed mental attitude to success and victory. Phronesis made him so big that when the Queen of Sheba heard of his success she couldn't believe until she saw it herself. It is very likely that the Queen of Sheba journeyed from her very distant country with her servants, cattle, gold and treasures, not as gifts to Solomon, but to mesmerize him. But when she got to Solomon's palace, she had hardly set foot at the entrance when she saw the level of opulence and the superb orchestration and order with which Solomon's servants went about their duties. This completely knocked the wind out of her. This is the reason I always talk to myself. I continue to drum certain words into me continually. Everyday I declare that: 'I refuse to be

broke in my life!', 'I'm a success!' 'I'm rich! Rich in dollars! Rich in pounds! Rich in Euros! I'm rich in every currency that matters! Boy I'm rich!' When you begin to talk like this, your mind and everything about you will begin to pick the signals and in a short time you will have them. This is the reason Solomon wrote 3000 proverbs and sang 1500 songs. Solomon only spoke of things he saw and could see. But I have both phronesis and sophia, because I am born again. And if you are born again, you have the capacity to speak more than 3000 proverbs and sing more than 1500 songs. True wisdom is the revelation of the divine will. It is seeing things with the eyes of the Father. It is the manifestation of the rightness of God. Wealth is not money. Money is just a name; it is also an illusion which exists and dwells in the mind of the poor.Y our value in life is independent of how much money you have in your bank account. Your value is based on how much information you have and your level of influence in your sphere of contact. For you to win and succeed in life you must have the right thinking.
Until you have the right mentality, you will not win consistently - Chris Oyakhilome

Make up your mind that you are going to be a success twenty four hours a day, and nothing will stop you.

Wealth Transfer
When God made all of creation, all things were made by him and for him. The earth is God's universe; it is the physical ECO department of God's universe. The universe is the collective name of heaven and the earth and all of God's creatures. The earth is in the spiritual realm even though it is in the physical world. God is big, that is why no body born in the world today was ever born to be poor. There is more than enough wealth in the world for everybody. The Bible says:
Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ; And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world Hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ: To the intent that now unto the principalities and

powers in the heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God. (Ephesians 3:8-10)

This scripture tells us something striking and important. This is why Solomon could not comprehend the sophia of God yet he increased daily in financial and material wealth. How much more you who have received all of God's wisdom? The above Scripture says '...might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God.' The phrase 'wisdom of God' is translated, 'the phronesis of God'. It means that the phronesis of God has been unveiled to the church. To paraphrase, the writer is saying that 'now unto the principalities and powers in the heavenly places might be known by the church the many sided 'effizies' of God.' My God is the God of effizy; effizy being the manifestation and display of mindblowing and dazzling creativity and beauty. The Bible says that with the 'blast of His nostrils He parted the seas'. Let me give you a picture of whom we are dealing with. When God made the heavens and the earth, mind you 'heavens' here is not referring to God's heaven, but the first and second heavens, which include the eight other planets; the sun, moon, stars, and the galaxies including the

Milky Way. The first heaven is the sky which is above the earth surface. The second heaven is space outside the earth, and the third heaven is God's heaven, the heavenly Jerusalem, the city of Zion. Now, can you imagine how big the earth is? Yet as big as the earth is if you put three earths together, it will not make up the size of one star. And there are billions and billions of stars in the universe. The God of Efizzy just fixed all of that for Him and by Him in glory. But that's not all! Do you know that there are over 365 million carats in one star? These carats are units of pure gold, such that if you took just a unit, it is enough to buy up a large chunk of the earth, but papa God reserved all those things there for Himself. Imagine you could put together all the stars, of which one is three times the size of the earth, the nine planets, the sun, and the moon and the moons of the other planets (i.e. the entire Milky Way galaxy) it would not be up to 10% of the size of God's heaven. If God could reserve pure gold in the stars, think of the fact that he constructed the streets of heaven with gold. Is it not possible that the gold in the stars are His left over? Why do you think that man is still discovering gold in the earth today?

This is because the earth is one of God's store houses. This is the reason Paul was communicating to the Ephesian church of the 'unsearchable riches of Christ.' In all of mankind, there are over six billion people on the face of the earth, yet man occupies only one-third of the earth surface. Yet we have so many in the world, fighting and killing themselves for lands, money and 'survival'. This is because they are myopic and do not know God, if only they knew, they would see beyond their limitations. All you need is the knowledge that comes from the phronesis of God. Then you will never be broke for another day in your life.
According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godl ines s , through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue. (2 Peter 1:3)

All you need is knowledge that is why you have to study. Don't just be limited to a particular field; you have to expose your mind and enlarge your intellect. Success is having knowledge of everything. Have the right ideology or mental attitude toward what you do, and why you do what

you do to. That way, you will achieve your aims and objectives within the context of your purpose. Ideology is defined as the way of thinking that guides a person in the way of life. In these last days, man is going to gain and increase in knowledge like never before. The Bible says:
But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the end: many shall run to and fro, and k n owl e d g e s h a l l b e increased. (Daniel 12:4)

This shows us that the knowledge of the sciences, the arts, politics etc shall be increased such as the world has never seen before. From the days of Daniel till this day, man's world has been improved. Why? The answer is simple: because knowledge has increased. And you know what? This is just a tip of the iceberg. For the day will come when cars will drive itself and will fly in the sky like airplanes; a day when man will need no external electricityproducing units like generators, but everything functioning will produce its own electricity. Everything that moves like vehicles and even humans walking will generate enough power for man's use. A day when man will gain and acquire supernatural skills like never thought possible.

Position yourself for success and start to train your mind! In your journey for a successful and victorious life, you must cultivate a disdain for mediocrity and the imprisonment and intimidation of modernity in your life.
