I remenber a few years ago,I and my friend were going to take a flight from Abuja in Nigeria to Warri,my town and for the first time my seat was just right at the emergency exit and I remenber as the hostess began to give instructions in case of any troubles what we needed to do,cold ran through my body with fear,just as she said,"in the case of a crash landing” someone else said “I reject it in Jesus name,we don’t need it” good prayer,but it was serious for me because I knew I had the responsibility with me to do something,in the case of any trobles,but thank God we landed safe.

An emergency exit in a structure is a special exit for emergencies such as a fire: the combined use of regular and special exits allows for faster evacuation, while it also provides an alternative if the route to the regular exit is blocked by fire, etc.It is usually a strategically located (e.g. in a stairwell, hallway, or other likely place) outward opening door with a crash bar on it and with exit signs leading to it. Emergency exit is vital for safety in the event of a fire outbreak and for easy evacuation of people out of the building. This is not a show of fear but wisdom,there are people who believe that when you as a child of God put such things in your building you are only attracting what you are trying to avoid,I would like to help such people think in the right direction. We say in my country “Prevention is better than cure” it is wisdom to have an emergency exit in your house,its for your safety and the safety of those in your household,not just exits but fire extinguishers and all the other safty equipments in the event of fire. We also need to build an emergency exit in our lives,this is important for safety in our relationships and businesses.We must learn to apply wisdom and faith in our dealings with other people. We need to clearly distinguish between faith and wisdom and foolishness.I see people confuse faith a lot for something else,sometimes we act in foolishness and call it faith.But we must have understanding in our dealings we must be wise. Faith is acting on the word of God.The word of God is the basis of our belief,we act on what we believe and that is the word of God.So it is vital that we understand scriptures clearly before we apply them. Wisdom is the application of understanding,as we know,knowledge is the acquisiton of information and understanding is the ability to put the information to their right places and wisdom is the actual application of understanding. So just having knowledge doesn’t make you wise.Experience is important for wisdom,experience can only be developed with time in practice,so as I use the understanding I gathered in reality,experience is built and with time wisdom is developed.Wisdom doesn’t come with prayer but with practice,putting to use what you know. Presumption,which is the the act of presuming,the assumption of something as true,but lets understand the word assumption,which is the act of taking for granted or supposing. Foolishness is resulting from or showing a lack of sense;ill considered;unwise;lacking forethought or caution. Some practice we call faith is total presumption or foolishness and I would like to give clear examples from scriptures some of the things we do out of lack of understanding but call faith and real life stories to also help; The bible in mark 16:18 says they shall pickup serpents and it shall not hurt them,some persons have gone on to the streets to start picking up serpents but got bitten by the serpents and some ended up dying that’s foolishness,because the bible never said,go out and pick up serpents,the emphasis was not on the serpent but the power of God that they receive.

I remenber some years ago how a man jumped into a lions den in the name of the lord and the lion ate him up after first taking out his private part,that’s another foolishness because even daniel didn’t opt to be thrown in there.

I remenber years ago,a friend has this dog and the dog was barking in a strange way,so he went out and shouted at the dog,with the finger pointed at the dog,saying in the name of Jesus shut up,and the dog bit his finger,foolishness in display.

I am not saying faith doesn’t work,but all I am saying is that we must be wise at all times,there are some things we can avoid and sort out by our selves,we must learn to use our discretion.

Sometimes we forget that the brain we have in our heads come from the lord and not from the devil.our brain is given for use,you can not understand mathematics by praying but by study,the holy spirit will not remind you of what you don’t already have some knowledge of,nobody is dumb,we all have the potentila to be better at anything if we can give ourselves to study,that is not to say we don’t need God but that God has given us all we need for life and Godliness.

We must put everything in its right place.We must be men in application.

Its not a display of fear to have an emergency exit in your life,its not a second plan but a plan with the main plan.Its not a second option but it goes with the original option.

Most people fail in business because they assume that everything will be okay we don’t have to worry about anything.
You are about to get into partnership with someone you know nothing about,and you are not doing the right things by getting a lawyer and writing the necessary agreements,but you assume he is a good guy and wont give you any problems.
A lot of people marry without taking certain things about eachother into deep consideration,you just assume he or she will be ok with time.
You change jobs without checking details about the new company,you just assume without doing the checks and you think its ok,when something goes wrong we cry God help.

Jesus said “For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it? Lest haply, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not able to finish it, all that behold it begin to mock him” Luke 14:28-29 ; starting is not the issue but finishing,some people will say,leave it for the lord or when we get to that bridge we will cross it,well what if the bridge collapse and you can’t cross or crash with it?
You employ people without necessary qualifications but plenty of sentiments,maybe he is your relative sometimes they are the ones who run down the business,you got to put up your emergency exit.

What causes most accidents on the roads today? because people disobey traffic signs and not care about the traffic lights and drive when they should stop,then an accident,don’t worry lets go by faith,its foolishness.

We got to be wise,wisdom is profitable for all things,add wisdom to your faith,faith doesn’t walk alone there are other virtue that is necessary to add to faith to make it more effective.

Add to your faith virtue and to virtue knowledge and to knowledge self control and to self control perseverance and to perseverance godliness and to godliness brotherly kindness and to brotherly kindness love,it ends there because love is the totality of the christian life and if all these things abide in you,you will neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our lord Jesus Christ,for he who lacks these things is shortsighted,even to blindness.

Faith doesn’t walk alone if you must be a success in life and in your walk with God you must add these things to your faith.

Case Study

...important aspects of OSH is emergency exits and fire protection systems. I have chosen this topic because fires can break out anytime and anywhere. The other OSH areas such as dangers of machinery, noise levels, toxic fumes or hazardous substances are to be found in specific workplaces, not all of them. Since all workplaces may experience fires, it is very important for them to have a reliable fire protection system and an adequate number of fire exits so that all workers may survive in case a fire breaks out. In the USA only, around 6000 workplace fires take place every year and it is estimated that office fires and explosions result in more than 200 deaths and 5000 injuries each year. Statistics in the UAE are not accurate about this matter. However, high safety measures complying with the requirements of OSHA are set for companies and workplaces before they are offered the license to operate. It has been noticed that the tragic history of all fire disasters is related to problems with fire exits and extinguishing systems which make an important part of a whole fore protection system. Of course, workplaces with fire exit problems do violate the safety requirements of Occupational Safety and Health Administration OSHA. Since fire protection systems aim to eliminate fire causes and protect lives and property, it is important for employers to set fire protection plans, review those plans from time to time, and regularly maintain fire fighting exits and equipment.

Theatre Fire

...trap. After it was all over with, more than 600 people would lose their lives making it one of the most deadly building fires in history, and forever changing fire science and safety. Introduction On December 30, 1903 hundreds of people filled the Iroquois Theater to see a matinee showing of the comedy Mr. Bluebeard, starring a popular actor Eddie Foy. The Iroquois theater was Chicago’s newest and most polished theater and had only been open for five weeks. The theater was advertised to be fireproof by the architect who had designed it, Benjamin Marshal. Marshal had studied many theater fires from the past and thought that his design would be completely safe. It was advertised that, “The theater had more than twenty five emergency exits and could be emptied in less than five minutes” (Weird and Haunted Chicago). Even a fire resistant curtain made of asbestos was installed to keep the audience safe just in case of a fire. The theater was designed to hold 1,600 people, but was believed to be overcrowded with nearly 2,000 people for the matinee show. Out of the 2000 people, most were women and children because school was out for the holidays. Also, almost 400 actors, stagehands, and dancers crowded back stage for the performance. The hundreds of patrons had no idea that their fun day at the theater would turn out to be extremely deadly. By looking at...

Health and Safety in the Work Place

...are well trained, most health care settings provide a training course at the beginning of the employment. Health as safety is often communicated through signs and posters; there are many different types of health and safety signs that can be located on doors and walls all over the building. A main example of health and safety signs is an ‘Exit’ or an ‘Emergency Exit’ sign that is usually located above a door; this sign shows us where we can exit from in case of an emergency of fire, another word for this door is a ‘Fire Escape’. Having an emergency exit sign is very important because if there happens to ever be a fire or another form of emergency it will make it quick and easy for individuals to find the quickest exit and leave safely. In a health and social care environment there are rules and codes of conduct put in place for both the staff and the service users to follow and abide by. These rules are put in place for the safety of both the staff and the service users. The rules are often communicated at the beginning during the training period.
