THE TRAIN: A True-Life Story Based on Mike Bamiloye and Ministry

Mike Bamiloye's recent movie titled, "THE TRAIN" has a lot of lessons to learn from. The story in it gives a biographical account of his life and ministry. The movie titled "THE TRAIN" details the true-life story of Evangelist Mike Bamiloye. Mike Bamiloye is a gospel dramatist, producer, and director. The movie reveals the passion he had for God. Hence taking a step of faith that changed his life forever. Mike Bamiloye whose other name was revealed in the movie as "Abayomi", started his life just like any other person would in Nigeria in the 1960s. He was born in Ilesa, Osun state on 13 April 1960. The movie began on a rather solemn note showing how his mother passed away and the amount of pressure and grief it brought on the young "Abayomi" (Mike Bamiloye) His childhood lifestyle portrayed in the movie, showed him gathering young children of his age, in a bid to make them act a short biblical movie "David and Goliath". He demonstrated his directing prowess by trying to direct the movie, but his effort failed miserably as no one wanted to act as Goliath. The movie continued as it showed Mike Bamiloye transform from a troublesome child to a well reserved and respected "brother" who took God and the work of God seriously. The movie setting, casting, and general character are highly impressive and generally good, too standard for a normal, everyday gospel movie. The movie started with a 1960s setting and environment which was hugely successful due to the blend of 1960s architecture, furniture arrangement, clothing, and language. Truly, the movie is a classic for Christians who cherish Christian movies. The movie which tells of Mike Bamiloye's success story encourages total faith in God. Also a strong belief amidst any raging storms that might try to weaken or make one deny God's presence in our lives. I saw the movie and was moved. For those who are yet to see this movie, you have to also learn from his true life story. You know what? Even without seeing the movie or yet to hear about his story, I have this to share with you. And they are lessons that can be learned from the movie.

Read Some Lessons below;

1. Always Believe in God

As a believer, you have to know this. In Christianity, Belief in God is the first step in the Christian faith. Belief in God is beyond faith alone like you all know. But it also involves taking a bold step of obedience. Then your diligence in studying the word of God.

2. Don't Give Up On A Child Whose Future Doesn't Look Bright.

Hmm! Yes, never give up. You don't have to conclude on him now. According to Mike Bamiloye in the movie, he seemed to have no clear direction in life. And with his future looking incredibly bleak, yet he overcame all. His sudden turnaround was a surprise miracle to those who once mocked him.

3. Your Present State Doesn't Determine Your Future.

Although we all know of a particular saying, "If Saturday will be good, one can tell as from Friday". One thing you need to know is, The current situation now, doesn't determine the future. Did anybody know that a small village boy from ILESA, in Osun state would end up becoming a world-renowned evangelist? I tell you, No one! His marriage to Gloria Bamiloye also had an ugly look then, but look at them now! In that relationship of yours, a lot might have been said by people about your partner. Like you both are not compatible, this and that. But from Mike and Gloria Bamiloye's marital journey, it is a great lesson. Most especially to those just becoming one flesh.

4. Know Your Area and Place of Assignment

Assignment? Yes! It might irritate you. Truly, it could be your assignment. Mike Abayomi Bamiloye (MAB) was not happy with the apparent and obvious glorification of the devil through the television. This spurred him to action to create Christian content and movies that would rather glorify God. In his zeal for God, he set out on a journey of faith that God honored. Mike's journey of faith is currently blessing millions of people globally today. As a Christian, there might be some evil, negative things that you may have noticed going on around you in your family, your place of work, or even your church. Now is the time to voice out. Do you know it could be an opening door to your God's given ministry?

5. Your Marriage Partner Determines Your Lot in Life.

It is either he or she makes you or mars you. The God who helped Mike Bamiloye to pick someone who had the same passion as he is still at work. He chose Gloria Bamiloye among other ladies who turned down his marriage proposals. Thereby, assisting and taking him to greater heights. When anyone chooses the wrong marital partner, its ending results become highly disastrous. I pray we won't miss it maritally. However, Gloria Olusola Alaba Obembe now Gloria Bamiloye was the right spouse for Mike Bamiloye while he was waiting.

6. Patience is the Best Virtue

When choosing a marital partner, you have to exercise enough patience. And most especially when you have a vision you're carrying. Only a virtuous woman can help you with that without turning back. A lot of lessons to learn from Mike Bamiloye's story. I can't just tell it all. But all thanks to the woman behind him who also saw the vision. THE TRAIN is making waves and impressing millions of viewers worldwide as it hit the internet on 3rd May 2020 on Nigerian YouTube.
