Prophet MKO Tibetan, 'Salary & Coca-Cola dangerous to physical & health destiny'
Today’s sermon is a serious wake up call to the youth of this generation. Why is it so difficult for an average Nigerian youth to start his or her business and build it to standard? Why is it difficult for Nigerians to go back to the farm and cultivate the land despite the large expanse of lands across the country? Why should young graduates leave school and start roaming the street of Lagos or Ondo state looking for jobs when actually they can create their own jobs and become rich or better still go and cultivate the soil and be blessed?

Why do we love salary so much that we end up becoming government’s pauper at the tail end of our lives? Have we ever thought about Michelin Tire? Have we ever taught about Dunlop; or Mercedes or Coca-Cola or Peak Milk (Campina WAMCO) or Guinness or any of those bigger corporations? Have we taught about Procter & Gamble? Have we taught about Cadbury?
The Preacher & his Interpreter
Those are companies built by families and till date, they are still in service with employers coming and going every decade.
Have we seen what is happening to Federal, State & Local Government pensioners in Nigeria? Do we see how they fall and die while lining up to receive their gratuity which does not come in months? Does it make any sense for you to live all your life receiving salary and later reduced to a pauper under the new name Pensioner?
Today’s Sermon is ‘Ewu ton be ninu Salary’ (The Danger inherent in Salary taking) and the senior brother—Coca-Cola (Ko ka’a, ko la)
Salary & Coca-Cola
Can today's Youth Work on their dreams?
The first industry God created for man was the Farm Industry—the land. In the book of Genesis Chapter 1 verse 11, it said “Then God said, ‘let the earth bring forth grass, the herb that yield fruits according to its kind, whose seed in itself on the earth; and it were so”. Verse 12 said everything came forth as God mandated them to be. The land gave out fruits, seeds and other necessities. The next most important thing God created was light. In verse 14, God said “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night, and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years. And let them be for lights in the firmament of heavens to give light on the earth”.
Do you know this two great invention of God is what has become the biggest problem for Nigerian leaders since 1960? Even at the return of democracy in 1999, Nigerian political leaders have found it very difficult to give Nigerians common steady power supply and food. Instead, we have relied so much on salary to the extent that we were tagged ‘a consumer economy’.
The Congregation of CCC, Elisha Parish
The book of Genesis chapter 4 verses 2 said “Abel was a keeper of sheep but Cain, his brother was a tiller of the ground”. It automatically shows that the two most important industries recognized by God in the beginning of creation and up till now is farming and animal husbandry. But today, the evil of salary has taken the farm hoe and cutlass from our hands and instead, handed over to us laptop computer. You can carry the computer from Lagos to Sokoto but rice, yam and cassava will never pop out from the screen of the computer. If you see a bag of rice on your computer, it only mean you are on the internet researching for something and that bag of rice will never jump out of the screen to be with you.  The bible says in the book of Proverbs chapter 12 verses 11 “He who tills his land will be satisfied with bread, but he who follows frivolity is devoid of understanding”.
Senate President Bukola Saraki .....Can his own son work as a bouncer in a club house?
So, why following Tinubu, Ooni of Ife and Saraki before you can eat? Why should you be jumping around from your councilors’ house to your LGA chairman’s residence to Alausa before you can provide bread for your family? Are you serious at all? Why do you chase frivolities and devoid of understanding?
Today, in the name of salary, we now have big corporation pen robbers who steal and loot destinies of millions of Nigerians at various government agencies. They are called Permanent Secretaries but they forgot that only God’s position is permanent. So, there can never be a permanent staff of government or permanent secretary. But to show that their position is temporary and not permanent, they dip their hands into the treasury and loot government’s funds, buying houses, cars and opening several bank accounts in the name of relatives and unborn babies, why? The fear of Salary—Sa’a laa rii!
 The Bible said in Proverbs 15 verse 27 that ‘He who is greedy for gain trouble his own house, but he who hates bribes will live” and Proverbs 17:1 says “Better is a dry morsel with quietness, than a house full of feasting with strife”. No wonder they are now burying monies in their septic tanks, burial grounds, kitchen cabinets, wardrobes and even soak-away.
Prophet MKO Tibetan 'The Land is the biggest enterprise created by God'
Today, an 18 years old boy or girl does not know how Yam is being cultivated in Nigeria. If you ask them to tell you, they are likely to tell you yam is plucked from the tree like Mango. Why? Their Parent taught them how to go to school, learn a course and look for job and start getting salary that does not take them anywhere in life. God didn’t create you to serve anybody while you were coming to the world; it is the bad programming of the society that turned many to beggars. They take salary from employments till retirement and government will now turn them to beggars with a new name—pensioners. Why?—Ewu n be ninu salary! (There is danger in Salary).
In America, a serving Senator retires to his ranch during the weekend. In Britain, a parliamentarian or banker will live for his crop or animal ranch during the weekend. In great countries like Holland, Denmark, Sweden and Norway, farming is not taken for granted as a job likewise animal husbandry and that is why a country like America can afford to feed her citizen in any season no matter how bad the economy is. America will do anything possible, even if it means offending other nations to see that she gets food for her teeming citizens.
Buhari & Saraki....Can they be trusted with the future of Nigerian Youths?
But reverse is the case in Nigeria. A parliamentarian will collect salary that is hundred times more than that of a hardworking civil servant, and you see a Governor becomes a senator and later a minister. He collects financial gratitude as ex-Governor, ex-minister and ex-senator. Some even collects salaries as ex-military head of state, ex-civilian head of state and ex-federal ministers. Why? They are afraid of their life-after-service? After service, they can’t function again, so they have to live on government—“Agboju L’ogun fira e fosi ta”
Worshipers in one of the church services
 The Yoruba says “Ise Agbe, Ise Ilee wa, eni ko sise, yi o jale” (Farming is our native profession, he who refuse to farm will steal); today, EFCC is catching the big thieves ex-governors. They are arresting heads of parastatals and government agencies for mass looting. Some Governors turned senators are under investigation sharing their senate appearances with court appearances and special appearance at EFCC and ICPC. Same thing for those at the House of Representatives; it is a vicious circle of roguery and thievery. No wonder, Ecclesiastes 9 from verse 3 says “This is an evil in all that is done under the sun; that one thing happens to all. Truly the hearts of the sons of men are full of evil; madness is in their hearts while they live, and after that they go to the dead”.
If there is no madness in their hearts, how can someone steal so much money and buy a car of N50 million and you are paying the driver that will drive the car and your life in it, Ten Thousand Naira monthly? Is that not madness? You build a five hundred million Naira house in Lekki from your stolen wealth and you are paying the Mai-Guard (Watchman) a miserable Fifteen Thousand Naira per month. Is that not wickedness? Job 4 verse 17 says “Can a mortal be more righteous than God? Can a man be more righteous than his Maker?”
Female Worshipers
How on earth can you pay your house girl, driver, security man and PA under a $100 dollars bill? How much are you paying them individually? And you want them to serve you for life? Today, Nigerian big men pay their staff miserable sums as monthly wages. Money they cannot even give their dog for picnic, they pay those poor people, expecting them to grow old and become useless to themselves. If you can pay huge amount of money to keep your own son and daughter in an ivy league school in USA, France or Britain and you find it hard to pay your workers their wages in six months or even a year, can we call you a good man?. Do you know your days of wrath will eventually come? Who told you those kids you spend such fortunes upon will turn out to become something good in the life? Are you God?
Speaker Yakubu Dogara of Nigeria....'Can his generation liberate Nigerian youths?
Today, the average Nigerian big man does his business with greed and hires people to cheat and fleece their strength. Most of them do their businesses with greed and intention to steal and never reward the wages of the laborer. Psalm 72 verse 4 says “He will bring justice to the poor of the people. He will save the children of the needy, and will break in pieces the oppressors”. That is God’s promise to those who use salary and wages to tie God’s people to mystery and poverty.
 Who told you God is not concerned about the plight of your workers, because they take your miserable salary does not mean you will go scot free after using the wealth from their labor to promote your own children. God cannot be settled. He said in the book of Nahum 1 verse 2 “God is jealous, and the Lord avenges; the Lord avenges and is furious. The Lord will take vengeance on his adversaries and he reserves wrath for His enemies”.
Prophet MKO Tibetan, Author, 'Revelation 2017'
Will you live and die by the whims and caprices of salary? Sa’a la’a rii?
Salary is evil! In a country where pensioners are dying in their hundreds and now going to thousands, the reality hits that salary is dangerous. In a country where over 20 states cannot afford to pay workers’ salary? In a country where graduates are now Okada motor cycle riders?
Why should your own child be locked out of school while Tinubu, Saraki and Buhari’s children are graduating from an Ivy League schools or top-notch university abroad? Why should your own child go and serve as Mai-Guard or bouncer or PA to Tinubu while their own kids are fixed in Chevron and other oil and federal government agencies? Is there anything bad if Tinubu’s son should work as a security officer or Mai-Guard in a company?
President Mohammadu Buhari....'Can he allow his son to work as a police man?'
Is there anything wrong if Saraki’s son works as a server or bouncer in a hotel? Is there anything wrong if Buhari’s son can work in the Nigerian Police force starting as a sergeant and rise to the rank? Is there anything wrong if Atiku’s daughter works at Federal Road Safety Corps, directing vehicles on the highway?, why should the poor work for salary and the rich live by their sweat? For those who employ young graduates and pay them destiny killing salaries and yet gives double or triple of such monies to their own kids as ‘picnic allowance’ the curses in Deuteronomy chapter 28 from verse 15 downward awaits you and your family.
Remember that the days of evil will surely come Ecclesiastes 12:1 “Remember your creator in the days of your youth, before the difficult days come, and the years draw near when you say “I have no pleasure in them”. If you remember God in the days of your youth, you will not cheat in your advanced age, you will not derail destinies with paltry salaries, and you will see reasons why people should be empowered.
The book of Jeremiah 5 from verse 23 says “But this people have a defiant and rebellious heart; they have revolted and departed. They do not say in their heart, ‘let us now fear the Lord our God, who gives rain, both the former and the later, in its season. He reserved for us the appointed week of the harvest”
Prophet MKO Tibetan....'The iniquities of the bad salary payers will locate them'
It says further that “Your iniquities have turned these things away, and your sins have withheld good from you”. That is why a lot of graduates now drive Okada motorcycles in Nigeria; this is why some people keep following Tinubu, Ooni of Ife and Ambode around town to get stipends to eat and feed their family.
Today in Nigeria, it is so bad that you cannot even attend a social event without being bombarded by an army of angry and jobless youths who keeps hailing you for money at the entrance or exit from such events.
Can Every Young People Go for a Renewal?
They won’t leave until you dash them something. The same thing goes with the politicians; you cannot find any politician on a political campaign without an army of jobless, ogogoro drinking and violent army of young souls. How did we get here? The Bible says “He who is slothful in his work is a brother to him who is a great destroyer” (Proverbs 18:9), no wonder those slothful boys that follows then around on political rallies are soon used as ballot and election destroyers during election period, but God is watching and his judgment will surely come in a jiffy. Because the Bible says in Proverbs 4 verse 14 to 16, “Do not enter the path of the wicked, and do not walk in the way of evil, avoid it, do not travel on it. Turn away from it and pass on. For the wicked do not sleep unless they have done evil; and their sleep is taken away unless they make someone fall”. And verse 17 says “For they eat the bread of wickedness and drink the wine of violence”. Let the truth set you free today, stop relying on Salary (Sa’a la rii) find something to do with your hands and your old age will not be miserable. The book of Ecclesiastes 9 verse 10 says “Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might; for there is no work or device or knowledge or wisdom in the grave where you are going”. The evil days shall surely come when you will depart this earth.
Koo ka Koo La (Coca-Cola)
CCC, Elisha Parish (Nigeria & Dublin)
The senior brother of Sa’a laa rii (Salary) is Coca-Cola. When you get your salary and you taste a bottle, the white man is so crafty to have put 8 cubes of sugar in a bottle and some soporific elements that makes you keep drinking and drinking more bottles until you develop diabetes. And once you develop diabetes from Ko’o ka, ko’o laa, you are half finished. So, Coca-Cola is the elder brother of Salary (Sa’a laa rii). They work hand in hand to hold you down and stop you from moving forward in life. The earlier you know the better for you!
