The lion is not the strongest and most intelligent animal in the wild forest, yet “he” is the king of the jungle. In terms of height, length and width, several animals are larger, taller, and longer than the lion, yet the lion is the king of the jungle.

The lion is not the swiftest in the jungle, yet “he” is the king of the jungle. Do you want to know why the lion is the jungle king despite his limitations? It’s because of his mindset. The lion’s mindset makes him king over the animals in the jungle.

The lion sees himself as the strongest, yet is not the strongest in the jungle. The lion sees himself as the smartest, yet “he” is not the smartest in the wilderness. The lion sees himself as wise, yet he is not the most intelligent in the jungle.

The lion sees himself as the fastest, yet he is not the fastest animal in the jungle. The lion's mindset has made him king of the jungle. You can do anything with a strong positive (optimistic) mindset.

Your mind is an intangible asset. How you perceive yourself will determine the response people give you. Like the lion because he sees himself as the king of the jungle. Other animals in the wilderness see themselves as prey and visualize lions as the king (predator) because that is how the lion has programmed “himself.”

You might be limited physically in resources, talents, and connections. However, you can be unlimited in resources, potential, and gifts in your mindset. You need superior knowledge to build this mindset!

You need books to sharpen your mindset! Without books, you will have a weak mindset. Like wild animals (elephants, tigers, hippopotamus), they are stronger than lions. Yet, their weak mindset has allowed the lion to dominate them.

It is the books you read that enlighten your mindset. The books you read position your mind to become resourceful and assertive. Read books to empower your mind. You will become a lion among the elephants, tigers, hippopotamus and other wild animals.


Learning from the ant

Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise:

Proverbs 6:6 KJV

The Holy Bible commands us to learn from the ant because they are wise and resourceful. You cannot imitate the wisdom of ants without studying them. You must read about them and watch their videos.

Reading is necessary if the Holy Bible commands us to learn from the ant. God knows that human beings have limitations. Without adequate knowledge, we will perish. If God commands us to study the life and wisdom of ants, what prevents us from reading? Read if you don’t want to become a fool. For more profound revelations about ant’s wisdom, freely download and read my book, the Book of Secret of Wisdom, on my blog.


The tragedy of ignorance and the uncommon power of knowledge

In the book of Hosea, God made a profound statement.


My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

Hosea 4:6 KJV

We can see from the Holy Scriptures that the lack of knowledge leads to destruction. These are the words of God. Failure to acquire knowledge will darken your path. Ignorance can make God reject you.

When you reject spiritual knowledge, you cease to become a representative of God. God will forsake your lineage because you hated knowledge. Miseries will welcome you because of your hatred of knowledge.

These are the words of God (meditate on Hosea 4:6). Monitor people who hate knowledge. They become prey to demons and wicked people. God did not say you will perish without food, water, money, house, land, friends, children, husband, wife, and cars.

Although these things are essential, you can become successful without them. God said you would perish if you lack knowledge (see Hosea 4:6). Knowledge is the master key to unlocking your ministry, business, cars, mansions, family, and temporal assets.

It takes wisdom to make money and buy land, cars, food and water. It is so pathetic that people chase temporal things and ignore knowledge. You need spiritual and resourceful knowledge to become successful because knowledge is the foundation.

Like a house, you cannot build it without a solid foundation. Building your house on sand is a disaster. Your foundation determines the length, height, and width of the building. In the same way, knowledge is your life's foundation.

Reading is the pathway to knowledge. You don’t acquire knowledge because your parents, friends, and family are knowledgeable. You acquire knowledge by reading! You need books! You need advanced wisdom to progress.

You need practical knowledge to break the failure and curses. You need uncommon knowledge to deal with specific enemies. You need resourceful knowledge to brighten your vision. You need divine wisdom to advance in life! You need spiritual knowledge to walk with the Holy Spirit (freely download the books on my blog).

You need spiritual knowledge to work with the Trinity. You need adequate knowledge to become the person God made you become. You need power and knowledge to discover and pursue your purpose.

As stated in the Holy Scriptures, failure to acquire knowledge leads to destruction (see Hosea 4:6). If you don’t want to perish, read and read. After reading, practice the acquired knowledge and teach others. I love reading because it helps me in many ways. Become a voracious reader. You will not regret it!


Knowledge is the pathway to deliverance

What are 10 reasons why reading is important? Why is reading very important in our life *? Why is reading important for children? What is the power of reading?

Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;

And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

John 8:31-32 KJV

Christ Jesus knew the power of the Word, so he commanded people to follow the Word (the Holy Bible). Christ Jesus stated that the Word could bring deliverance. Knowing the truth makes you free.

For example, living in sexual purity (knowledge) exempt unwanted pregnancies, which often leads to the sin of abortion. Living in sexual purity (wisdom) exempts you from deadly sexually transmitted diseases such as Human Immune Virus (HIV), Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS), chlamydia, syphilis, gonorrhoea, human papillomavirus and several infections.

Knowing the truth comes from reading books. I mean reading spiritual and resourceful books. Check out my previous article for more profound revelations. You don’t have to embark on long fasting and prayers to solve the problem of sexually transmitted diseases.

You must apply the wisdom enshrined in the Holy Bible. You must apply the knowledge of abstinence and sexual purity to escape the trap of the deadly disease. Remember, I did not enumerate the spiritual dangers of sexual immorality.

If you know the danger of something, you will think twice. I believe in fasting and prayers. However, some problems demand knowledge. This is one reason God has given us the mind. If you are hungry, you don’t fast and pray to quench the hunger. You apply wisdom.

You either buy or cook the food. After acquiring the food, you must consume it. That’s the best way to eliminate hunger. You applied wisdom. You did not fast and pray. You used your mind to eliminate the hunger problem.

In the same way, you need knowledge to solve marriage, finance, and social issues. If the problem is spiritual, you need spiritual knowledge. It could be fasting and prayers. However, every situation has a cause. You need spiritual and resourceful knowledge to solve the problem. This is one reason Apostle Peter wrote to the church to desire the Word of God.


As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:

1 Peter 2:2 KJV

If you are going to grow in the Spirit, you need spiritual milk. You must read the Word of God (the Holy Bible). Reading the Word of God develops your spirit and renews your soul (meditate on Hebrews 4:12, Romans 12:2 and 1 Peter 2:2).

Failure to read the Word of God will lead to spiritual kwashiorkor. The Word of God contains spiritual nutrients. Feeding on the Word of God supplies spiritual carbohydrates, vitamins, proteins, and calcium to your spirit and soul.

If fruits, vegetables, meat, cereals, rice, bread, beans, and water, can supply nutrients to the body, why do you starve the spirit and soul of spiritual food (the Holy Bible)? It is time to grow your spirit and soul with the Word because the spirit and soul need spiritual nourishment.

It’s time to feed your spirit and soul with the Word because it contains spiritual nutrients. It is time to engage the Holy Bible and resourceful books. Devouring books will upgrade your spirit and soul.

When your spirit and soul receive nourishment, they will empower the body to work effectively. When you build your mind with the Word, you will become sensitive to the Holy Spirit. Start reading if you want to become strong and fruitful.


Battle of the Mind and the Effects of Books

For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:

(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)

Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

2 Corinthians 10:3-5 KJV

Wars are in three categories. We have physical battles, spiritual battles and soulish battles. Freely download my series of books on my blog for more profound revelations. You cannot win physical battles without first winning spiritual and soulish battles.

This is why you need greater knowledge to win invisible wars. In one of Pauline’s letters, he described spiritual warfare (see 2 Corinthians 10:3-5). Apostle Paul stated that we must pull down strongholds.

He stated that we must cast down invisible strongholds blocking our deliverance. These strongholds challenge the wisdom of God. It limits our progress and allows the devil to dominate our thoughts.

For example, some people claim homosexuality, lesbianism, and bestiality are “human rights.” These are strongholds the devil implants into people to lead them astray. Until we break this stronghold with the Word of God, we cannot progress.

How can you break these strongholds if you don’t love reading spiritual and resourceful books? Some people have become slaves to evil spirits because of ignorance. Ignorance has opened the portal for evil strongholds to capture their soul and body.

Some people are living in abject poverty because of a stronghold. Their culture, mindset, beliefs, ideologies and philosophy have become their enemy (stronghold). Such vessels cannot receive freedom until they break these strongholds with spiritual and resourceful knowledge.

This is one reason Apostle Paul commands us to break and cast down every imagination (stronghold) that makes us weak, unproductive, and sinful with the Word. Freely download and read my book on my blog, Dominating the Dark Kingdom, for more profound revelations.

Without adequate knowledge, we cannot break demonic and deceptive strongholds. You need superior knowledge (the Holy Bible) to dominate the devil’s lies and the world’s deception. You must fill your mind with spiritual and resourceful knowledge.

When you fill your mind with spiritual and resourceful knowledge, they will eliminate the strongholds hindering your progress. Feeding your soul with spiritual knowledge leads to deliverance.

When you turn on your light in the evening, your room becomes bright. The light in your space lets you see the things inside your room. If there is an unwanted thing in your room, you can eliminate it because you have light.

In the same way, you need knowledge (light) to eliminate every unwanted thing in your life. You need unbreakable and unstoppable knowledge to break demonic and unfavorable strongholds (dark cultures, ideologies, beliefs, and satanic human rights) hindering your progress.

You can be strong physically. However, you will be limited if you are weak mentally and spiritually. It would be best to have mental and spiritual strength to do exploits. Mental and spiritual strength comes from reading, fasting, and praying.

You will not be intimidated by a macho man (a man with huge body muscles) if you are strong mentally. Develop a habit of reading. Your mental muscles will be strong. When your mental muscles become strong, the ungodly strongholds and abusive people in your family, school, and environment will not dominate you.

Your mental and spiritual strength will lead you to a successful path despite your family, school, church, and workplace limitations. You can have the most beautiful car in the world. However, the car will break down if it has a weak engine.

You need a strong engine to drive the car. In the same way, the engine is your mind. You can travel far if you have a strong mind (engine). The more you read, the strong your engine (mindset).

Fall in love with spiritual and resourceful books. Nothing in this world can stop you if your mind has the required information and is ready to do it. I will throw more light in the next article on this subject. For more profound revelations, freely download and read my book, Dominating the Dark Kingdom and Uncommon Wisdom Keys.


Commanded to be a lover of books

Till I come, give attendance to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine.

1 Timothy 4:13 KJV

Apostle Paul was an avid reader (see Acts 26:24, 2 Timothy 4:13). One reason for his wondrous works was that he studied. Aside from Paul receiving the call of God, he did not joke with books. Paul wrote to Timothy, one of his ministerial assistants, to read.

Paul knew that reading would enhance the call of Timothy, so he reminded him not to ignore books in ministry. Do not joke with books if you want to become a resourceful gospel minister, leader, Chief Executive Officer, and manager.

Books broaden your understanding. Books help you deal with people. Books expand your creativity and intelligence. Through books, you can manage the organization and lead people. The more you read, the greater your revelations.

Reading enhances your relationship with the Holy Spirit. Reading expands your mind to do more outstanding works for God. Your ministry will become valuable and attractive when you read, teach and apply the acquired knowledge. When you read, apply the information and share deep, resourceful knowledge, you will attract knowledgeable and resourceful people to your ministry and organization.

  • Have you ever considered how and why Apostle Paul trained numerous gospel ministers?
  • Have you ever thought about how and why Apostle Paul wrote numerous books?
  • Have you ever thought about how and why Apostle Paul built many churches?
  • Have you thought about how and why Apostle Paul did more wondrous works than other Apostles?

Apostle Paul was a lover of books! (Meditate on Acts 26:24, 2 Timothy 4:13). If you want to do the same or even better works than Apostle Paul and great leaders, become a voracious reader!


Books are better than gold and silver!

Receive my instruction, and not silver; and knowledge rather than choice gold.

For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it.

Proverbs 8:10-11 KJV

Silver, gold, rubies, money, and assets can do many things. However, they have limitations. Solomon, one of the wisest and wealthiest men that lived, writes that we must receive instruction (knowledge), not silver.

Solomon further states that we must choose knowledge above gold. He explains that wisdom is better than rubies. Nothing can be compared to knowledge! Silver, gold, money, rubies and any treasurable asset cannot be compared to knowledge.

Do you want to know why? You can lose gold, silver, diamonds, money, rubies, and precious assets if you lack wisdom (knowledge). However, with wisdom (knowledge), you can get gold, silver, money, and any treasurable asset.

You can make, manage, and multiply gold, diamond, silver, rubies, money and any precious asset if you have wisdom (knowledge). Haven’t you read and seen billionaires and millionaires who became bankrupt and committed suicide?

You can make, manage, and multiply resources if you have wisdom. This is one reason you must read books. If you want to maintain and multiply your resources, acquire knowledge. If you want to diversify or expand your business, you need knowledge.

You need knowledge from the Holy Spirit to help you expand the church. If you want to become important, acquire knowledge and practice them because it takes wisdom to make the right decisions.

If one of the wisest and wealthiest men that walked and lived on earth is telling you to choose knowledge above resources, why do you hate knowledge? Read if you don’t want to lose your resources. Read books if you don’t want to end badly. Freely download and read my book, how to receive the Spirit of wisdom, on my blog for more profound revelations.


The unwavering power of knowledge and ignorance

An hypocrite with his mouth destroyeth his neighbour: but through knowledge shall the just be delivered.

Proverbs 11:9 KJV

One annoying thing about ignorant and sinful people is that they destroy. As we all know, empty barrels make the most noise. However, knowledge brings deliverance to the righteous. If you are going to be delivered, you need knowledge.

You have chased “religious leaders,” traveled to several territories, and visited the best health practitioners. However, your problems remain. You need superior knowledge. You need spiritual knowledge to build the seed of righteousness.

Without adequate spiritual and resourceful knowledge, demons will continue to oppress, depress, suppress, impress, and possess you. The absence of knowledge opens the portal for darkness to dominate your environment.

Prioritize knowledge. I mean, read books. You will not become the enemy’s weapon. I pity people who destroy because they don’t know what they are doing. If they knew the consequences of their evil deed, they would not do it in the first place.

Like a man holding bitterness and unforgiveness in his heart, such a man destroys himself. He might think his bitterness, anger, and wickedness will destroy his neighbor. A time comes the bitter man will begin to suffer demonic oppression, incurable diseases, depression, sorrow and suicidal thoughts.

However, a knowledgeable (wise) man will eliminate bitterness, anger, and unforgiveness in his heart because he knows the spiritual and health dangers. Desire knowledge, and you will not become a prisoner.

Read books if you don’t want to remain in the enemy’s prison. This is the introduction section. More profound revelations are coming soon! In the next article, I will dissect the relevance of knowledge and how the mind works when it receives information. Kindly share the link to this article with your loved ones so they can also grow in wisdom.
