A lot of stars said they would move to Canada and other countries if Donald Trump won the US election, so it looks like it's time for them to pack their bags.

Veteran actor Samuel L Jackson told Jimmy Kimmel back in December 2015 that he would move his "black ass to South Africa" if Trump won.

So now may be a good time to look for a condo in the sub-continent then, Samuel. We hear Cape Town is just lovely this time of year.

"If Donald Trump wins the election, I'll move to Canada".

It's what several celebrities said during the US election, and now that President elect Trump is taking his seat in the White House, we're about to find out if they'll make good on their promise.

Big name stars including Lena Dunham, Miley Cyrus and Amy Schumer claimed they would have to bid farewell to the US if Trump and won - but will they really do that now?

The most hotly contested US election in living memory is over and Trump will be the next President, so those A-listers must be packing their bags, right? Read more

'And to all the women.. who put their faith in this campaign and me... I want you to know that nothing has made me prouder than to be your champion.”


“I know we have still not shattered that highest and hardest glass ceiling, but I know someday someone will, and hopefully sooner than we might think right now.


“And to all the little girls who are watching this, never doubt that you are valuable... and deserving of every chance... to pursue your own dreams.”


“I'm incredibly honored and grateful to have had this chance.”


“May God bless you and may God bless the United States of America.”

Seed of Destiny Devotional: DIVINE IMMUNITY

DIVINE IMMUNITY

SCRIPTURE: For I, saith the LORD, will be unto her a wall of fire round about, and will be the glory in the midst of her. Zechariah 2:5

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: To put your confidence in God is to be shielded by Him.

Divine immunity is also referred to as heavenly-matic immunity or heaven-sponsored immunity. It is heaven’s seal of preservation over the life of a believer against the onslaught of the devil.

When a man or woman has the immunity of heaven, they have the mystery of exemption from destruction at work in their life.

The truth is, though Divine immunity and preservation is the heritage of God’s children, certain conditions are to be met in order for one to benefit maximally from it. This is because for every provision, there is a condition, and for every possibility, there is a responsibility.

What then are the conditions for Divine Immunity?

1.Unwavering faith, trust and confidence in God:  According to Ephesians 6:16, we understand that faith is a shield. To put your confidence in God is to be shielded by Him.
2.The possession of revelation: The truth you know determines the shield you can have. Shield your life with the truth of God’s Word.
3.The refusal to fear: To refuse to fear is to attract Divine immunity.

Receive Divine cover and immunity from every dart of the enemy in Jesus’ Name.

Remember This: To put your confidence in God is to be shielded by Him.

ASSIGNMENT(S):
1. In the face of challenges, refuse to fear because fear is a magnet of evil.
2. Shield your life with the Word of God daily.

FOR FURTHER UNDERSTANDING, GET THIS MESSAGE: SECRETS OF DIVINE PRESERVATION.

PRAYER: O LORD, I make demands on Your power of preservation and immunity from the tragedies and calamities of life. I declare that in my life and family, ‘There shall be no loss’ LORD, in Jesus’ Name.

DAILY READING: Ezekiel 20:1 to 49, Hebrews 9:11 to 28, Psalm 107:1 to 43, Proverbs 27:11

QUOTE: Every battle is 50% won if the enemy’s strategy is unravelled. Culled from ‘365 WISDOM CAPSULES’ by Dr Paul Enenche.

Senate probes Amaechi over rails concession

Minister in Nigeria GOVERNMENT
The Senate on Tuesday began a probe into the concession of the eastern and western rail lines to General Electric, a United States-based company, without following due process.

The lawmakers made the move following a motion by Senator Bassey Albert (Akwa-Ibom North-East), entitled, ‘urgent need to investigate the granting of concession of the western (Lagos-Kano) and eastern (Port Harcourt-Maiduguri) rail lines to General Electric, a US company’.

“The Senate is convinced that the Ministry of Transport has violated the provisions of the Public Enterprises (Privatisation and Commercialisation) Act, 1999 by unilaterally engaging the General Electric for the concession of the western (Lagos-Kano) and eastern (Port Harcourt-Maiduguri) rail lines as evident from the above facts,” Albert stated while moving the motion.

He recalled that the Public Enterprises (Privatisation and Commercialisation) Act, 1999 established the National Council on Privatisation and the Bureau of Public Enterprises for the purpose of privatisation of public enterprises.

He noted that the BPE and the Nigeria Infrastructure Advisory Facility, upon the approval of the NCP in April 2015, developed a road map for the concession of the Lagos-Kano and Port Harcourt-Maiduguri rail lines “despite the fact that the Nigerian Railway Corporation Act did not envisage a concession of the corporation until recently amended.”

Meanwhile, members of the Nigeria Union of Railway Workers and the Senior Staff Association, Nigerian Railway Corporation branch staged a protest against the planned concession of the 3,505km narrow-guage railway track to General Electric without the payment of the workers’ entitlements.

Gabrielle Simiyu a motorcycle taxi operator from Kenya was almost lynched by an irate mob after he was caught having sex with a goat, it took the intervention of the police to save him. The horny 26yr old says he had sex with the animal because he was rejected by women and villagers claimed it wasn't the first time and he had previously coupled with a chicken and a cow. Luck ran out on Simiyu after the female goat's owner, Richard Wanyonyi, heard bleating and checked his shed in the village of Nangwe, Kenya.

He told local media:
"I thought my animals were strangling each other so I tiptoed to the cow shed and flashed my torch. "I was shocked when I found the man but he ran away very fast. "Since it was at night I did not see him very well so I took the shoes he left behind and began a search in the morning."
Mr Wanyonyi showed the shoes to other motorcycle taxi operators and they told him they belonged to Simiyu. Kenyan media said Simiyu admitted having sex with the animal and pleaded for forgiveness.

What Is Conscience?
Billy Graham Devotional
Today Wednesday November 9, 2016

Having a good conscience . . . — 1 Peter 3:16

What is conscience? God has put within each one of us something that cries aloud against us, whenever we do that which we know to be wrong. Conscience is the detective that watches the direction of our steps and decries every conscious transgression. Conscience is a vigilant eye before which each imagination, thought, and act, is held up for either censure or approval.

I believe there is no greater argument for the existence of God in the world today than conscience. There is no greater proof of the existence of a moral law and Lawgiver in the universe than this little light of the soul. It is God’s voice to the inner man. Conscience is our wisest counselor and teacher, our most faithful and most patient friend.

Prayer for the day: Thank You, Father, for my conscience which checks me and guards my actions. Help me to be alert to its promptings, through Your Holy Spirit.

Kenneth Copeland's Devotional: Brag on God

Brag on God 
Kenneth Copeland's Daily Devotional
Today Wednesday November 9, 2016

Rejoice and exult in hope; be steadfast and patient in suffering and tribulation; be constant in prayer. - Romans 12:12, The Amplified Bible

We're to live in hope. We're to rejoice. So, when Satan comes to steal your victory and tell you that God is not going to help you this time, you just think on the Word of God and start rejoicing. Rejoice that you're in Him. Rejoice that heaven is your home. Rejoice that greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world. Rejoice. Brag on God today. The devil can't stand it!

"Be steadfast and patient in suffering and tribulation...." Tribulation means "being under pressure." When pressure comes, don't cave in. Don't faint. Instead, go to the throne of grace. Go boldly in the Name of Jesus and get the help you need.

Remember this: When things get hard isn't when you let go of the Word. That's when you double up on it. That's when you are "constant in prayer" so that you are immovable.

Rejoice. Be patient under pressure. Be constant in prayer. The devil won't be able to steal one thing from you!

Memorise: And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. – Matthew 1:21

Read: John 8:1-12 (KJV)

1 Jesus went unto the mount of Olives.

2 And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them.

3 And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,

4 They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.

5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?

6 This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.

7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.

8 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.

9 And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.

10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?

11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.

12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

Bible in One Year: Genesis 8:1-11:9, Psalms 99-100

MESSAGE:
Those who are born of God do not commit sin because the seed of God is in them. The moment a person becomes born-again, sin becomes distasteful to such an individual. The moment a person comes in contact with Jesus; he becomes a new creature. There is no amount of morality and self-righteousness that can declare one a saint, this can be done only through the help of Jesus Christ, because until there is a shedding of blood, there is no remission of sins. The primary reason why Jesus came to the earth is simply to deliver people from sin. The moment sin is removed; there will be a great relationship with God. It is sin that takes us far from God.

Jesus came to destroy the works of the devil and we see this in the life of the woman caught in the act of adultery. There was something Jesus saw that others didn’t see. Jesus saw a sinner afflicted with the works of the devil. Jesus knew that the moment a woman like that comes to the knowledge of the Truth, she would be free from condemnation. Right there, the grace of God found her and she went and sinned no more. There are many honourable things to gain from living a holy life. 2 Timothy 2:19 says:

“Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.”

The moment a person departs from the life of sin and turns to the path of holiness, he becomes a vessel unto the Most-High God. The life of such a person becomes honourable. There are many people who claim to be Christians today but are living in sin. A genuine Christian must keep sin at a distance, live a life of good works through Jesus Christ and be a vessel that is clean both within and without.

Jesus showed the Pharisees their hypocrisy with respect to the case of the woman caught in adultery. They accused Jesus of breaking the law. They wanted to trap Jesus through her case, only to be caught in their own trap. They vanished one after the other by the time Jesus showed them the motives of their actions. This is why you must come to Jesus, no matter how terrible you feel you might have fallen. You cannot fall below His grace.

“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” - Romans 5:8

There is a sure reward for those who forsake the path of sin and choose the path of righteousness. Righteousness will exalt you, but sin will always bring reproach.

Key Point: Who you follow determines what follows you.

Battling Impatience 
Today Wednesday November 9, 2016

Text: 2 Kings 6:24-33

Key Verse: "And there was a great famine in Samaria: and, behold, they besieged it, until an ass's head was sold for fourscore pieces of silver, and the fourth part of a cab of dove's dung for five pieces of silver" (2 Kings 6:25).

One enduring lessons you get for being in God's school is patience. Not possessing it amounts to failing a critical test as a believer. This was the undoing of Israel's first king, Saul. He would not wait for Samuel to perform the sacrifice when a challenge came his way. This led to his fall. Many years later, lack of patience was the undoing of another king and two women in the northern kingdom of Samaria during a time of severe famine following a siege by Syria.

The women resorted to cannibalism. After one of them had offered her son for meal as the food shortage bit hard, the other refused to give up her own child. Both were impatient to wait for God's intervention. King Jehoram was not spared the disease of impatience. He sought to kill Prophet Elisha, whom he erroneously blamed for Israel's predicament. All the land was afflicted and the people ate what came their way. An ass head, which even in peace time nobody would eat, became a delicacy. Yet all they needed was to simply pray and dwell on God's unfailing promises and how He took care of similar situations in the past. In the days of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, drought drove the people to God and He did not disappoint them.

If these people of Samaria and their king had exercised patience and faith in God, they would not have taken the rash decision that compounded their troubles, because just after they did this, God stepped into their predicament and brought "a day of good tidings" that even lepers ate and drank and possessed silver, gold and raiment. God used His prophet to bring the good news, but unbelief, a manifestation of impatience, cost a king's aid his life. The impatient Christian has not absorbed the full teaching in God's College. He needs to take one more trip to the cross at Calvary and be washed clean of the hasty spirit governing him.

Thought for the day: Be patient in tribulation (Romans 12:12).
