Exodus 20: 15 “Thou shall not steal”
What has now come to be known in Nigeria as yahoo yahoo, internet fraud or cybercrime actually has no other name than stealing. Stealing is stealing and has no other name other what God gave it. A yahoo boy, like satan, his father, is a thief, a destroyer and a killer!
Yahoo Yahoo is a satanic creation. It is a sin. A sin with huge implications that travel through generations.
It is a means of defrauding people by pretense, lies, impersonation using satan’s most lethal tool, sex, to achieve romance scams etcetera.
It is a two-way communication. The yahoo yahoo boy is engaged in sin-stealing and he knows it and sometimes, the recipients on the other side are sinners who respond to the yahoo boy’s manipulations and prompting because of lust.
Most times, however, the innocent ones are beguiled into thinking that they are rendering help to charity organisations or a cause only to be defrauded.
To begin with, indulgence in cybercrime is a result of lack of trust in God and more than anything else, absence of the fear of God in us.
One yahoo boy once boasted of how he continually milked a German automobile heiress of millions of euros. He claimed he made the woman sell all the assets willed to her by her late father until there was only one building left.
While this was going on, the yahoo boy or thief was busy buying houses in Nigeria and Ghana and was hailed as the richest man in his home town.
When this German automobile manufacturing heiress, who was hooked to a romance scam, realised she had been fleeced of an entire family wealth amassed in generations, she wrote a suicide note to her so called lover in Ghana saying she was going to commit suicide. The fraudster encouraged her to do so as the only option left and she did!
The implication of this evil act is huge. The repercussion will run in the so-called yahoo boy’s family for generations and even his unborn children will suffer for this grievous act.
What the Bible Says
Most yahoo boys are known to flourish with ill-gotten wealth and sooner than later, wither like dry leaves! Every single item purchased: landed property, houses, cars, huge bank accounts will be sold one after the other until nothing is left.
Poverty will set in because their work is of the devil and the devil really has no power to give anything except stolen items.
God warns in Ephesians 4: 28 that “Anyone who has been stealing must steal no longer, but must work, doing something useful with their own hands, that they may have something to share with those in need”.
At the end of the day, it is what Ecclesiastes 1:2 calls “Vanity of vanities”, says the preacher. “Vanity of vanities! All is vanity”. Proverbs 10: 2 says “Treasures of wickedness and ill-gotten gains do not profit, but righteousness and moral integrity in daily life rescues from death”.
2 Corinthians 5:17 says: “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation: old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new”
Do you know that no matter the level of sin you commit, as soon as you repent totally, you become a new creature? Your sins will be forgiven automatically, then you begin to do the work of the kingdom of God. That is how merciful and loving our God is.
When you start doing something useful and Godly with your own hands, following the teachings of Jesus Christ, you will see, nobody will tell you that Jesus has taken over your life. It will be evident as long as you stay away from sin.
A yahoo yahoo boy can take the first step by saying this prayer after which you find a Christian church to attend regularly. Please do not go back to this crime with generational consequences afterwards.
Lord Jesus, I come to you today. I am a sinner; I cannot help myself. Forgive me my sin. Cleanse me with your precious blood. Deliver me from sin and satan, to serve the living God.
Today, Lord Jesus, I accept you as my Lord and Saviour. Now I know I am born again!
If you said this prayer, you are now born again. Find a Christian Church and start attending church services. Join some groups in the church and truly start serving God and see how his light will shine upon your life!
Remain blessed of the Lord.

Biden Pushes for Legalisation of Homosexual, Lesbian Rights in Nigeria, Others
United States President Joe Biden has directed American Embassy in Nigeria and other countries to push for the legalisation of homosexuality in their respective countries of residence.
Biden gave the directive in a White House statement on Memorandum on Advancing the Human Rights of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Intersex Persons Around the World.
The United States president said the memorandum reaffirms and supplements the principles established in the Presidential Memorandum of December 6, 2011 (International Initiatives to Advance the Human Rights of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Persons).
“It shall be the policy of the United States to pursue an end to violence and discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, or sex characteristics, and to lead by the power of our example in the cause of advancing the human rights of LGBTQI+ persons around the world,” Biden said in the memorandum.
“Through this memorandum, I am directing all agencies engaged abroad to ensure that United States diplomacy and foreign assistance promote and protect the human rights of LGBTQI+ persons”
Biden said the memorandum calls for “Swift and Meaningful United States Responses to Human Rights Abuses of LGBTQI+ Persons Abroad.
“The Department of State shall lead a standing group, with appropriate interagency representation, to help ensure the Federal Government’s swift and meaningful response to serious incidents that threaten the human rights of LGBTQI+ persons abroad.”
Biden noted that “When foreign governments move to restrict the rights of LGBTQI+ persons or fail to enforce legal protections in place, thereby contributing to a climate of intolerance, agencies engaged abroad shall consider appropriate responses, including using the full range of diplomatic and assistance tools and, as appropriate, financial sanctions, visa restrictions, and other actions.”
One of the countries with a restriction against the legalisation Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Intersex Persons globally is Nigeria – with a law prohibiting their acts.
The Same-Sex Marriage Prohibition Act (SSMPA), signed into law in 2014 by former President Goodluck Jonathan, was enacted on the premise that the Nigerian culture is antithetical to homosexuality.
With the population of the country largely divided between Christians and Muslims, there was also a religious urgency to the prohibition. Persons of the LGBTQ+ community risk up to 20 years jail term in Nigeria.
However, Amnesty International said the prohibition by the government exposes persons of the LGBTQ+ in the country to harm and called for a reversal of the law. US President Biden shared the same sentiment in the memorandum.
“All human beings should be treated with respect and dignity and should be able to live without fear no matter who they are or whom they love,” Biden said.
He said the United States belongs at the forefront of this struggle — speaking out and standing strong for members of the LGBTQ+ and holds the values of treating people with dignity regardless of race, colour or sexuality.

Newly Confirmed US Secretary of State Vows to Promote Gay, Lesbian Agenda
*To fly gay pride flags at embassies around the world
The newly confirmed U.S. secretary of state has vowed to support the LGBT agenda by flying pride flags at United States embassies and resurrecting the “special envoy for the human rights of LGBTI persons.”
Antony Blinken, who was confirmed 78-22 by the United States Senate Tuesday, shared his thoughts about LGBT issues during his Senate confirmation hearing last week, which took place before President Joe Biden took office.
As he questioned Blinken, Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass., a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said, “You and President-elect Biden have indicated that you’re going to support, appoint a new special envoy for human rights on LGBTI people, a position that I’ve been pushing to make permanent through the International Human Rights Defense Act.” As a presidential candidate, Biden vowed to make LGBT activism a centerpiece of his foreign policy.
“After four years of Trump administration efforts to specifically marginalize, minimize, do damage to the rights of the LGBTI people, I think it’s going to be vital to appoint a seasoned expert on this issues. Are you going to move forward towards a speedy appointment towards an LGBTI envoy and would you consider raising it to an ambassadorial level?” Markey asked.
Blinken answered in the affirmative: “This is a matter, I think, of some real urgency, we’ve seen violence directed against LGBTQI people around the world increase. We’ve seen, I believe, the highest number of murders of transgender people, particularly women of color, that we’ve seen ever and so I think the United States playing the role that it should be playing in standing up for and defending the rights of LGBTQI people is something the Department is going to take on and take on immediately.”
Markey also asked Blinken if he would “repudiate the findings of the report of the Commission on Unalienable Rights and reaffirm the United States’ acceptance and adherence to the human rights laid out in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights” and whether he would “ensure that ambassadors are able to fly the pride … flag at our embassies around the world.”
“Yes to both,” Blinken replied.
The Commission on Unalienable Rights was created by the State Department under then-Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in July 2019. In a press conference announcing the State Department Commission, the secretary of state argued that “international institutions designed and built to protect human rights have drifted from their original mission.” According to Pompeo, “As human rights claims have proliferated, some claims have come into tension with one another, provoking questions about which rights are entitled to gain respect.”
Democrats and progressive advocacy groups quickly criticized the move to create the commission, warning that it constituted an attempt to remove LGBT rights and abortion from the consensus definition of human rights. During the Trump administration, the United States signed the Geneva Consensus Declaration, which declared that “there is no international right to abortion.”
