Published

Hezekiah Okoro Nweje, was an Anglican priest.
A native of Onitsha in Anambra state. He was born in 1919 and died in June 1962.
He was nicknamed “Holy Nweje” because of his very humble, extreme righteous, easy going & a humanitarian life he lived. He was tenaciously devoted to the things of God. Whatever gifts he receives from the church he shepherded was always shared with those in the vineyard, the poor and the less privileged. He doesn’t hoard·them at the expense of the needy.
In his philosophy, he believed that wealth was sharing what you have without hoarding it. At a time, he was nominated for the position of the Anglican Bishop on the Niger, he declined and nominated someone he felt was more qualified
Rev. Hezekiah Okoro Nweje was seen as an upright, spotless and a righteous man. It was all those outstanding qualities he possessed while alive that brought about the name “Holy Nweje”. Depicting how holy one can be. He believed ones anger should not see the next moment.
In May 1956 Onitsha and Obosi were tussling for a piece of land, Rev Nweje was called as a witness, he told the Judge that none of the towns owned the land, na “Ani bu ani Chukwu” The land and thereof is of the lord. That ended the land tussle. He was always on the side of peace.·
Around April 1956, during the daytime local thieves invaded his house in Onitsha and stole tubers of yam and fowl, he ran after them and told them to come and take more cited hunger as the reason for their unconventional behavior. What a man!
Growing up in Igbo land, if seen or perceived as an upright person, you would be called or nicknamed “Holy Nweje” When next you’re called HOLY NWEJE, do not feel ashamed or mocked. It tells good of you. Nweje Lane in Onitsha metropolis is a street named to immortalize him. END

About Billy Graham Scandal early in Life

How Billy Graham Avoided Scandal early in Life
Evangelist Billy Graham lived 99 years, wrote 30 books, met with 12 sitting American presidents and preached the gospel to millions. But when he is buried this Friday, March 2, in his hometown of Charlotte, North Carolina, he will be remembered not only as a world-changing hero of faith but as a humble preacher whose personal integrity set the gold standard for every minister in this country.
Why was this man so respected? How was he able to keep his ministry free from scandal for more than 75 years?
In 1948, when Graham was just 30 years old, he and his small ministry team met for Bible study and prayer at a tiny motel in Modesto, California. The other men in that meeting including assistant evangelist Grady Wilson, singer George Beverly Shea and song leader Cliff Barrows. Graham challenged them to pray about what codes of behavior they needed to adopt in order to keep the ministry clean.
The results of that meeting were profoundly prophetic. The men outlined what would become “the Modesto Manifesto”—a list of core ministry values that became the guiding principles of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. The BGEA was founded two years later, in 1950, just one year after media coverage of Graham’s eight-week gospel campaign in Los Angeles made him a household word.
Here are the four key components of the Modesto Manifesto, along with notes that Cliff Barrows jotted down in their meeting:
Honesty: “It was resolved that all communications to media and to the church would not be inflated or exaggerated. The size of crowds and the number of inquirers would not be embellished for the sake of making BGEA look better.”
Integrity: “It was resolved that financial matters would be submitted to a board of directors for review and facilitation of expenditures. Every local crusade would maintain a policy of ‘open books’ and publish a record of where and how monies were spent.”
Purity: “It was resolved that members of the team would pay close attention to avoiding temptation—never being alone with another woman, remaining accountable to one another, etc. A practice of keeping wives informed of their activities on the road and helping them feel a part of any and all crusades they undertook would be encouraged.”
Humility: “It was resolved that members of the team were never to speak badly of another Christian minister, regardless of his denominational affiliation or differing theological views and practices. The mission of evangelism includes strengthening the body of Christ as well as building it!”
Graham has always been a spiritual hero to me for this reason. Early in his ministry—in fact, before he ever became famous—he realized that his ministry was a stewardship from God and that he could not run it any way he wanted. He had to manage it according to clear biblical principles.
Graham never forgot his humble roots, and he never let popularity change him into an egotistical monster. Even though he was invited to dine with presidents, queens and celebrities, his passion was taking the message of Christ to the common person. And when an usher tried to segregate black and white sections of an auditorium in Chattanooga, Tennessee, in 1953, Graham removed the barriers himself.

“I am not a great preacher, and I don’t claim to be a great preacher,” he once said. “I’ve heard great preaching many times and wished I was one of these great preachers. I’m an ordinary preacher, just communicating the gospel in the best way I know how.”
He also carried with him a healthy fear that he might try to touch God’s glory or take credit for evangelistic results.
Graham said: “So many people think that somehow I carry a revival around in a suitcase, and they just announce me and something happens—but that’s not true. This is the work of God, and the Bible warns that God will not share His glory with another. All the publicity that we receive sometimes frightens me because I feel that therein lies a great danger. If God should take His hand off me, I would have no more spiritual power. The whole secret of the success of our meetings is spiritual—it’s God answering prayer. I cannot take credit for any of it.”
So much of what we call ministry today has been compromised by ego, marketing and man-made agendas. Some of our own “Spirit-filled” preachers are happy to sell a healing or a financial miracle for $29.95. Others claim spiritual superiority because they have the largest following on social media or because so many lined up to attend their packed conferences.
We have exchanged honesty, integrity, purity and humility for hype, fake anointing, manipulated photos, inflated attendance reports, sensuality and boastful swagger. God forgive us.
Billy Graham raised the bar for all ministers. I pray we will never forget his legacy.

Life Story of JOE PRAIZE

20 years today I moved to lagos in a pick up van own by the guardian newspaper Nigeria where my elder brother once worked .
I remember very well the experience for me that day, it was as though I was traveling overseas , it was a big move for me and I knew my life was headed on the right direction.
On the 5th of March 2001, I step foot in lagos as a migrant and the first place I went after dropping my small bag in that “empty house “ was church ( Christ Embassy Ikeja ) and that day was the last day of a program that year called prosperity convention with the man of God Pastor Chris and we had Apostle Gbenga Igbafen as the guest minister and I saw for the first time how people were being moved by God to go sow seeds on the altar of God , I gave the small money I had in my pocket that night but it was as if it wasn’t enough , I felt there was something more to do. ok , “ long story short “ , I pulled my shoes ( I remember that my black shoe ) it was my very best and the only shoe I brought from Benin City , my one and only outing shoes ( lol ) . I rushed to the altar and dropped as a seed , I was barefooted through the remaining part of the service and after the service , I waited behind and joined those moving things out of the church building ( I was just looking for something to do after everything , I became MR ANYWORK that night ).
The program ended and I walked out of the church and those I came with asked for my shoes and I said to them it’s on the altar and immediately they understood what that meant. I went back home from clay bus stop in Ikeja to owode-ajegunle close to ikorodu where I was living at that time barefooted jumping on available public that very late hour and eventually got to my bus stop … reaching the bus stop there was no okada to take us to the house very far inside , so we had to walk, and while doing that the OPC guys came out , harassed us and we collected one slap but got home .
SOWING THAT SHOE THAT NIGHT WAS AND IS TO BE REMEMBERED TILL THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH.
It is 20 years today and I am deeply grateful to God for GRACE.
Help me celebrate the grace of God at work in a man with a purpose and on a mission.
