Gospel act EBA releases classic visual for ‘I Overcome’

85972756.295

After weeks of the long wait and high anticipation, shooting gospel musician EBA premieres the official visual for his latest masterpiece, titled “I Overcome”.

This comes at a time when it’s needed most because most people are in distress and misery, and need such an exhilarating and heartening sound and visual to help them overcome their fears.

The visual starts with iconic island shots with a serene environment in the mix. It reflects EBA’s deep thoughts of God’s nature, and his posture from the prelude flashes his tranquil heart.

“I overcome/in the name of Jesus/every knee will bow/Higher the mountain/Greater shall be the falling,” EBA sings with passion and delight in his heart while he gawks at the wondrous nature and switches his body posture and moods in tune with the slow-tempo jam produced by Sir Julius of The Praise Factory Studios.

EBA has said the song is backed by Romans 8:37 and proffers optimism and makes room for persistency – a key to survival in ordeals like the COVID-19 which has rocked the world.

The visual encapsulates the right approach by zealous Christians – remaining calm and motivated – in the face of this adversity.

The classic, colourful and optically stunning visual is directed by Sir Ernest.

Enjoy the full visual below!

Having money doesn’t mean you’re blessed – Joel Duncan Williams

83047578.295

Joel Duncan-Williams, founder of Firm Foundation Ministries and the son of internationally acclaimed Archbishop Nicolas Duncan-Williams was the recent guest on the weekly Instagram Live Sessions with Nana Adwoa Sarkodie.

In the hour-long interview, the young prophet revealed that having money doesn’t mean you’re blessed. “Riches don’t determine to bless. The Bible says The Lord maketh rich and addeth no sorrow. You’re blessed from the time you entered this world. I knew Hushpuppi personally and his situation is unfortunate but is he in a blessed position right now?” he quizzed.

“Having life, eating, moving, seeing means you’re blessed. The blessing is not in a piece of paper. The piece of paper can always locate other people but not everyone is blessed and you can’t buy a blessing. If it’s on you” he emphasized.

He also explained that God sometimes delays financial blessings because he wants us to be good stewards of our money. “Not everybody can handle financial blessing. And that’s why God increases you as your revelation increases. If He should give you 2 million dollars today, you’ll only spend it on cars, but God will let you wait for 2 to 3 years to understand that cars are a depreciating asset so you can spend your money on something more profitable” he said.

The topic of discussion was “Dealing with Pressures in Society”. According to Prophet Joel, if society is pressuring us, then our stand in Christ is not strong enough. He referenced Romans 8:29 which says “We are predestined to be conformed to the image of Christ” and Matthew 5:13 “You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men.”

Adding that “We are supposed to be the taste of society. Society shouldn’t dictate our taste to us. We rather should give society a taste of who we are. When we conform to the pressure of society, we are telling God that we don’t deserve to be blessed”.

He also declared that anybody who calls themselves a Christian but cannot stand for Christ is a hypocrite. “Society can’t pressure me into becoming something I’m not because society didn’t make me. It is God who has blessed me and made me what I am so I will never be ashamed of praising God and calling on His name even when I find myself in a 7 star restaurant or in any situation where people frown on being loud for Christ.”

He quickly noted that God is not looking for perfection, He is looking for progression. “God understands we are human and the flesh is real. He doesn’t expect us to become saints overnight, but He expects growth” he added.

Responding to a question about death to flesh. Prophet Joel explained that, we can’t die of the flesh because we are flesh but we can subdue the flesh by having our faith in God, by taking it a day at a time, and not allowing what used to hold us to hold us anymore.

He surprisingly revealed his own predicament saying “I used to have a problem with masturbation. But I had to believe God and had to keep praying and it moved from three times daily, to once a week, to once a month, to never. You’ve got to build yourself in God, it doesn’t come overnight but you’ll get there. What keeps me anointed is that I’m not perfect, if I were perfect, I wouldn’t need the anointing”.

In another response to a question about marriage pressures, the budding prophet said “The Lord makes all things beautiful in His time. Just because society thinks you should get married now doesn’t mean you should be married now. Age has nothing to do with getting married. God doesn’t show up when you want Him to but He shows up right on time”.

Finally, Prophet Joel Duncan-Williams encouraged us to endure our sufferings and take it as a lesson from God to build us into becoming better and not to view it as a punishment. “People have betrayed me so much and back-stabbed me and it broke me, and pushed me into the ground, and it isolated me, but guess what; in my isolation, God located me. God doesn’t deliver you from your friends, He delivers you from your enemies. You’ve got to let some people be enemies so that God can set a table for you in their presence and they will personally declare that it is only God who has blessed you this way.”

If your husband travels for more than three years, leave the marriage – Pastor advises

10337662.295

Rev. Nyansa Boakwa, a man of God and host of Happy FM’s religious programme ‘Nsem Pii’, insists that if a man travels and stays as long as three years away from his wife, the marriage should be dissolved.

He said on eTV Ghana’s ‘In Bed with Adwen’ during a discussion about ‘Masturbation’ with host, Adwen, the Love Doctor that masturbation is wrong and should never be done whether alone or on phone with one’s partner.

“If you’re even living with your wife and for a period, you haven’t had sex, that is not marriage. So if you’re listening to me and you’ve allowed a man to marry you only for him to leave your side for ten years, you will be here alone till you grow old and die. Leave that marriage,” he exclaimed.

Per Rev. Nyansa’s view, marriage is only valid when there is a consummation of the marriage, and when the man and his wife share the same bed. He also noted that in marriage, the least number of times a couple should have sex within a week is four or five times.

“If you marry a woman and you have to travel, take her along. If you leave her behind, marry another wife there and let her also marry someone else here,” the pastor further added.

1588615879_6642_b

Legendary music duo Lydia Dedei Yawson Nee Tagoe and Elizabeth Korkoi Tagoe popularly known as Tagoe Sisters have said the current songs out are too noisy.

Speaking in interview with Fiifi Pratt on Kingdom plus 101.9 FM, they stated clearly that this generation are good though but lack rich content in music and also do a lot of noisy songs which is diminishing the agenda of promoting the word of Christ Jesus to have impact on the music lovers.

According to them, they themselves after doing a song those days will send it to some presenters and production team to listen and tell them what to change and add but today the artist enters the booth and as soon as he or she comes out then they release it which has brought out a lot of noisy songs into the system.

They advised that at least they should contact people to write for them rather than trying to do it themselves and yet come out with trash

The sisters who are celebrating three decades of spreading the gospel through music also expressed satisfaction with the impact their songs have had on Ghanaians and people outside.

unnamed

According to the man of God, women have to be strategic when it comes to marriage.

“As a woman, you just don’t go into any marriage because you are in love.

He also added;

“If you make a mistake and you choose or you accept from the wrong person based on his romance and not his vision. A lot of young ladies go for romance and not vision…carry on. Very soon he’ll start borrowing money from you…he’ll tell you to use your credit card in debt and by the time you realise you’ve had 2-3 kids…waste of time.”
