Bible Reading: James 4: 6-7

Memory Verse: When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom. Proverbs 11:2 (NIV)

Film Maker, Ben Ope Johnson who shot the film, “Just a little Sin”, one of the classics of Mount Zion said after the ministry decided to upgrade to a higher level of film making, in 2000, they searched for “secular” professionals. Go watch the film, “The god’s are dead”, you will see the touch of professionals. But then I didn’t like the film because they used “secular” professionals. After the film was made, we were in a meeting and I said, “I didn’t see a touch of creativity in cinematography, I was expecting what TK,

Alagba Tunde Kelani did in “Saworoide” but… Bro Mike (that was what we used to call him) was so furious. He said, “Oh because you are not the one that shot it, is that why you are condemning it? That is pride, it’s a bad spirit. You must humble yourself so that God can use you. Are you trying to stop the move of God?” That day it was as if the ground should open and swallow me. Since that day, I learnt how to walk humbly. I learnt how not to condemn other people’s work. I did away with the spirit of ‘If it’s not me, if it’s not us what they are doing in rubbish.’

Consequently, I was not allowed to shoot for them until ten years after. My stupid comment caused me a lot. At the end of tenth year, I was invited by Evangelist Mike Bamiloye to shoot ‘Sunset at Midday’ and afterwards shot many other films for them. Recently, I noticed the spirit that took over me amongst my people (Christian dramatists), the spirit of what they are doing is rubbish. The spirit that wants to stop the moves of God. The spirit of if it’s not the way I want it, it can not be from God. I will encourage everyone to learn from my mistake and also learn from Moses’s. If God can stop Moses from entering the promise land, he can stop anyone irrespective of what the person feels he has done for God. 

Quote Sin came through the pride of Lucifer and salvation came through the humility of Jesus – Zac Poonen
