Wise-solo: Can you tell us your name in full please
P.J: Jeffery Eromosele…
Wise-solo: do you have any nick name?
P.j : Well I do, some persons call me P. J which means pastor Jeff.. That’s like an abbreviation of my name..
Wise-solo: I would settle for that then…P.J
P.J : So I technically adopted it and use it for most of my online write ups…
P.J : But I would prefer you pastor Jeff in a platform like this…
Wise-solo: Tell us about your child hood?
P.J :Growing up for me was a bit challenging and the same time interesting…
P.J :My dad played a major role in my intellectual capacity apart from the formal education I got… I sincerely appreciate those days where he always brings newspapers to the house and we had no choice than to read and it helped me to broaden the scope of my mindset…
Wise-solo: Kindly highlight three major lessons you learn from your challenges while growing up?
P.J :Well firstly, I learnt hard work, sometimes when it’s not convenient for me, my parents would still want us to do what is needed to be done and if you don’t, trust me, you will be in trouble with my dad and so I had a mindset of working hard..
Wise-solo:Okay the first lesson is HARD WORK?
P.J :Then secondly,
P.J :I learnt the act of submission and respect, my mum always gives my dad the respect due to him and it saved the house alot of troubles… I discovered from her that humility is the gateway to peace and tranquility in every marriage and home…It’s not always important to have your way all the times in issues, sometimes you just have to bend backward for peace to prevail and that’s why I never saw my dad and my mum fought for one day…
P.J :So I saw where it wasn’t convenient for her to succumb but she just had to… It was challenging to me anyway…
Wise-solo: WOW..”Humility is the gateway to peace and tranquility” what a word, i think i need to tweet that.
Wise-solo: I you ask me, one of the major reason why many marriages hit the rock these days, is the absence of what you just explained right now
P.J :Then lastly, peer pressure was a challenge major to me..
Wise-solo: Yes this is also a huge challenge right here, i was going to talk about that somewhere in the middle of this interview, but since you brought it up.
P.J : The first time I gave my life to Christ, I was still very young even though I really did not know what it means to be saved, I lost my salvation because of peer pressure, I saw my friends doing things differently and I consented to their ways, Prov1v10 says, “do not consent when sinners entice thee”…I went contrary to this scriptures, but thank God, I came back to the lord in 2006 and am still here basking in the lords arm… My mum and my aunt in Lagos played a major role in my restoration process, So I was able to build enough strength resist wrong advances and it helped me stayed in faith. Glory!
Wise-solo: wow.. that’s interesting.
Wise-solo: I know you to be a spontaneous writer, a pastor, and very intelligent?
Wise-solo: so what are the things you are passionate about that i refused to mention?
P.J : By God’s grace…
P.J : Am also passionate about purpose and a strong affinity with the person of the Holy Spirit… These are my cravings all the time..
Wise-solo: Now, we are getting to the real purpose of the interview.
Wise-solo: I know you to have an infectious passion and love for God, any story behind that?
P.J : Well, there are a lots of story but I will just say one of the major, my passion and love for God became fully blown when I encountered one of Benny Hinn book titled “Good morning Holy Spirit”, it transformed my life and since then my desire for God climaxed and I still watch videos of Him today..
P.J : Hence the reason for my passion as regards the affinity with the Holy Spirit..
Wise-solo: You’re also an avid reader, would you like to share some of the books you’ve read in the past that has transformed your life, and please tell us about your all time favourite book, and some of the lesson you learn from it that made it your favorite?
P.J : Okay.
P.J : Well, two books stood out for me, they are, “the pursuit of purpose by Myles Munroe and Good morning Holy Spirit by Benny Hinn.
P.J : I learnt from Myles Munroe book that God created everyone with a purpose, and you can only Flourish in what you’ve been wired to do… We’ve been called to do a particular thing and not everything.
P.J : And then from Benny Hinn book, the Holy Spirit is the best friend anyone can ever have and He needs to be amplified in our lives by fellowshiping with his personality..
Wise-solo: Now to the question of purpose, How do you discover your purpose?
P.J :My all time best book is still Good morning Holy Spirit cos it talks about the greatest helper of all time.. Without Him (Holy Spirit) we can do nothing.
P.J :Then to the question of how to discover purpose.
P.J :We must first know that God created our purpose and it’s our responsibility to discover it…So Firstly, we must be connected to the one who made the purpose and then every other things will follow.
P.J :Finding out our passion will definitely point us toward our purpose… Passion is the fire of the soul that conveys to our place of purpose fulfillment.
P.J :So it’s important to ask yourself, what are my passionate about? This question will point you to the problems your life is meant to solve.
Wise-solo:When you look at this generation of youths, what comes to your mind?
Wise-solo: “Passion is the fire of the soul that conveys to our place of purpose” this is the bullet point that pretty sums up everything… trust me this is worth tweeting too.
Wise-solo: So it’s important to ask yourself, what are my passionate about? which many people especially the youths seldom asking today.
Wise-solo: When you look at this generation of youths, what comes to your mind?
P.J : Great potentials with an heavy dose of ignorance….So that’s why they have to be taught the act of Destiny realization..
P.J :That’s what comes to my mind.
Wise-solo: lol…. with heavy dose of ignorance
P.J : Yes.. They always want to do what’s available instead of doing what they’ve been wired for. And that’s what is causing confusion among the youths today.
Wise-solo: How do you think they can be helped?
P.J : Firstly, their mentality needs to be ventilated and knowledge does that ventilation.
P.J : The layers of ignorance must be dealt with by craving for knowledge, it involves reading books and listening to mentors in their desired field of endeavour. The way up is to connect with those that are already there.. That’s where mentoring is very important.
Wise-solo: wow.. so you mean knowledge is what they need, and not their fruitless attempt of trying to look like a particular celebrity?
P.J :Yes…They shouldn’t try to look like any celeb, those that possesses vision and are willing to work on it will definitely be watched on Television..
Wise-solo: wow you hit the point.
Wise-solo: What are the things you would say to a youth who is feeling a void, and not certain which step to take in life, and also to the youth who is about to give up in life?
P.J :Well, they should stay connected to God because he is the source of purpose… And then the place of prayers and diligent study will help bearing in mind that “Rome wasn’t built in a day”,they shouldn’t be scared to start small.
Every vision needs time,a correct approach and the right environment to blossom and become a reality..That’s what every youth should know.
P.J :Knowledge births vision by opening a persons eyes to see correctly.
Wise-solo: do you have people you look up to, as a mentor?
P.J :Yes I do.
P.J : My mentors are, Pastor Benny Hinn, Dr. Paul Enenche, Pst Johnmark Ighosotu and Dr D. K. Olukoya
Wise-solo:Why did you chose them?
P.J : First of all, God connected me to my mentors and caused me to choose them, remember Phil2v13 says “God is at work in us to will and to do his good pleasure”.. They possess the instruction my destiny needs for fulfillment and there is this connection each time I listen to them. It is that connection that makes impact flows them to me.
Wise-solo:What are your plans to affect your generation?
P.J :Basically, most of my plans are pointed towards young people, and so a platform has been created to reach out to them.. One of such is the Ignition network and it’s geared towards sparking God consciousness and activating destiny and purpose fulfillment .. And that’s the reason for the online write ups and nuggets…Also the public speaking will be intensified, it’s time to catch them young and impact them with the right mindset.. So that we can have a world of enlightened people.. And this will be possible through Gods word and the Holy Spirit.
Wise-solo:What’s your idea on marriage?
P.J :Marriage is a beautiful venture instituted by God for the purpose of procreation and destiny enhancement….So if it’s not for these purposes, then it’s no longer marriage but a distortion of God’s order.
Wise-solo: Distortion of God’s order..The BULLET POINT.
Wise-solo:What do you think the youths are getting wrong about marriage?
P.J : It’s most times in the area of aligning their purpose with who to marry… Purpose comes before marriage, we must know what we’ve been called to do before venturing into it because by doing this, the youth will have pointers to who they should spend the rest of their lives with…Amos3v3 says,” two can’t work together except they first agree”..It’s a sync and the God factor that makes marriage productive and not just the euphoria of our longings… Marriage is way above some fantasies..So every youth must get it right..
Wise-solo: It is not a trip to Disney land.
Wise-solo: what’s your favorite quote?
P.J :”Great men are those of extraordinary passion that drives them to fulfillment”
Wise-solo:If anybody is to read this interview, what would you like them to always remember?
P.J :Everyone is a potential gold mine, look inward , amplify the Holy Spirit and the sky will be your starting point to the realm of no limit.
Wise-solo:What would you like to be remember for?
P.J :My passion for the person of the Holy Spirit so as to please Jesus and cause a divine revolution among the youths and humanity in general… That’s what I will love to be remembered for.
Wise-solo: Lastly what are your last words for this interview?
P.J :Don’t give up on yourself.. You can become all God wants you to be.. Just stay connected to God and the right company.
Wise-solo:I know you’re the pioneer of the IGNITE NETWORK.
