Nigerian radio personality, television talk host, and vlogger Toke Makinwa is known for co-hosting The Morning Drive on Rhythm and for being a fashion diva who does not hide how she feels on any issue. She took to her Instagram account this morning to set some records right about celebrities and rich people in general.
The vlogger who is one of the hottest female on-air personalities in Nigeria wrote that some people, are reading the long-held excerpt from the bible “Vanity upon vanity all is vanity” all wrong, and that the misconception has gotten many to believe that successful people are not Godly or are not good Christians.
She urged people to quit hating on successful people, clarifying that God is a rich God himself. Well, there is no better way to say it than this. Her post reads:
“I don’t do religion, I think one of the major problems in the world today is religion. Wars have started in the name of religion, people are lost in certain doctrines, they don’t know who God is. God is not a poor God, God does not delight in poverty! Being a Child of God does not mean you shouldn’t desire the fine things of life. The street of heaven is made of Gold. Stop buying the lies sold to you.
“God wants you to flourish, to dominate, to subdue the earth. You can dream big, it is your duty to carry the light of God. Stop with the Vanity upon Vanity talk, every single person that worked with and for God was blessed. Soooo blessed at that. Those days it was in cattle, land and much more. If that doesn’t tell you that you should be blessed, I don’t know what will. My last post inspired this. I just feel the need to encourage someone out there.
“Find God on your own and work out your own salvation. Your father owns the heavens and the earth, you should be at the top. Stop judging, not every successful person has sold their soul to the devil. You don’t know their walk with God, Jesus met the lady at the well and asked her for a drink, she had been married many times and was living with a man who wasn’t her husband but Christ went there cos he knew she would come to draw water, do you think Jesus needed the water? You think he couldn’t command water to rise? He knew she needed salvation, he went there cos he knew she would come and he approached her not with judgement but with kindness. God loves us all”.
