The book ‘single without wrinkle’ is addressing all single ladies and guys who have either chosen to stand for purity and serve God truly or those who desire this life but don’t know how. Fikayomi Awotunde is a sexual purity ambassador who is sold out to God and has been blessing young people by showing them how to walk in sexual purity. She has proven her calling by her participation in various secondary schools outreaches. Therefore putting this book together is her own way of giving back to the society. In this book she showed us how to be single indeed without wrinkle. How to become one if you are still struggling, how to also gain strength as a child of God in order to carry you through life. How to walk in purpose and remain there and finally how to maintain a cordial relationship with God. I am therefore recommending this book for all single guys and ladies who desire to be single for Jesus by staying pure and walking with him in spirit and in truth. God bless you.

When you see things in a different way, your thought will become different. Isa 55:8-9 God’s definition of single is completely different from the general definition it. The light of the body is the eye, if therefore thine eye is SINGLE, thy whole body shall be full of light. Matt 6:22.
It is important that we address the subject of single without wrinkle because of the error that has been perpetuated in the body of Christ; because of the condition of the day and need of the hour. Whatever a Christian has, if he does not have holiness; it is worthless. 1Thess 4:7.
There are five main perspectives from which I recommend this book: Hypocrisy is not of God and does not generate holiness. Matt 15:8-9, matt 23:27-28. Those who know God don’t behave like dogs. 1 peter 15:16, matt 7:6, 2 peter 2:21-22. Before a Christian can be trusted, his character will be tested. Gen 39:7-9. Persistence in iniquity is a proof of lack of integrity. Rom6:1-2, Isa 59:1-2 It is better to remain a single than to marry a sinner. Prov 1:10.
If you are a single, this book is intended to help you fulfill God’s plan for your life and marriage.
By simply understanding what the word of God says and then acting on the word, you will become single without wrinkle. How can young cleanse his way?
By taking heed according to your word. Ps 119:9.

WHO IS SINGLE?
According to English America Dictionary, a Single is someone male or female that is yet to be married, who is not involved in a romantic relationship without being married or dating anyone exclusively.
A single person is someone that is uncompounded; pure, unmixed that is someone who has not by any way or any means join him or her with another.
Someone may say, but a divorced person is single, yes but in this content of this book we are referring to a male or female that has not been joined with any other person or things.
A single person is an undefiled person when I say undefiled, I mean someone who is pure, sanctify, one who has not been contaminated, dishonored, deflowered and desecrated. So a single person is someone that is undefiled in all areas of his / her life.
TO BE SINGLE IS TO SEPARATE YOURSELF A Life of singlehood is a life to leave out the crowd, a life to set yourself apart from others and multitude i.e. to stand out from the crowd. A life of singlehood is a life to discover yourself, who you really are, who God has made you to be, what He has proposed for you to be and be focused.
In the scripture when God told Moses to tell the children of Israel to separate themselves it is always a time that God wants to visit them. You must understand that it is the principle of God to visit his people not when they are amidst the crowd but when they are separated.
So a time of separation for God to visit you that is what being single is, so if you know you are single truly and not experiencing Gods visitation then maybe you are being entangled with one thing or the other. Separate yourself indeed and you shall experience the Lord’s visitation in Jesus name, Amen.
TO BE SINGLE IS TO BE CONSECRATED To be consecrated is to be holy. To live a devoted, dedicated and sacred life. Most time in the scripture when God speaks on consecration is always on the purpose of wanting to make use of the fellow that is; most time on a call to service. God does not use a life that is not consecrated, He will make sure you consecrate yourself before He will use you. A consecrated life will be used by God, so as single you stand a chance of God using you in your period of singlehood once you can live a Holy life.
WHAT IS WRINKLE?
A wrinkle is a fault, imperfection or bug, especially on a system or product. Wrinkle means blemish, pollution and something that can defile and stain a body or surface. Wrinkle defiles, it disfigures a fine face and also causes a change in that product.
TO BE WRINKLE IS TO BE BLEMISH Blemish is a flaw which spoils the appearance of something, a stain or a spot. Being wrinkled can be in any form, it can be a spot, stain, deformity, a large scar or even a bruise surface Wrinkle can stand as deformity Wrinkle can stand as a stain Wrinkle can stand as a blemish Wrinkle can stand as an impurity Wrinkle can stand as rough wrinkle can stand as unholy Wrinkle can stand as ungodly Wrinkle can stand as an imperfection Wrinkle can stand as a past abuse Wrinkle can stand as a blame The most important wrinkle can stand as SIN
EFFECTS OF A WRINKLE LIFE
There are seen and unseen effects on a wrinkled product or life; because the word wrinkle is a noticeable word so is also most of the effects on life are highly noticeable and disastrous.
1. IT MAKES THE LIFE TO BE UNACCEPTABLE – A life with stain and spots, the blemish will be unacceptable firstly to God and to man. There are different places in the scripture where God commands his children to present a sacrifice or a burnt offering to him. One of the qualifications that make the sacrifice acceptable is if the offering or sacrifice is without blemish, blameless and without fault.
2. ANOTHER EFFECT IS THAT IT CAN MAKE THE LIFE TO BE USELESS – A life that is not acceptable from the Lord may be useless forever because it is in your acceptability that adds meaning to your life and makes you something good.
A useless life is a life that God is not able to work on not because God is not powerful have to run He is our creator but because the life is not an acceptable life before the Lord.
3. A WRINKLED LIFE HAVE THE CHANCES TO DIE EARLY – An uncared spot or scar can spread all over that surface or product and cause great damage than before which may lead to the death of life 4. IT MAKES YOU OLD – You don’t attract instead you repel.
5. In agriculture especially in animal production, one of the things that leads to a separation of an animal from is another fellow is when that animal has a fault, deformity or has been polluted in its body may be an injury or something, they quickly separate the animal from the others not to affect them.
6. Then it makes life to be vulnerable and also to be prone to any other attacks; is like once you start allowing sin in your life you become open for the devil to attack you. Is like a hole in the wall that gives lizard a chance to penetrate. Just like when you don’t treat yourself well from an injury or a little disease in the body, it leads to other diseases and infirmities that are more deadly.
NOTE: what the enemy is looking for is just a loophole, just like a wrinkle it doesn’t need to be big or wide, just that little sin is enough for him to penetrate in life and destroys it.
HOW TO SPOT A SINGLE WITHOUT WRINKLE PERSON

A single that has accepted Jesus Christ as his/her Lord and personal Saviour. That single has crossed the bridge from darkness into Gods marvelous light and has been redeemed. A life that has confessed and departs from sinful ways.

8. Singles that are overcomers, 1John 2:14 says “I write to you, fathers because you have known him who is from the beginning.

That life will be spirit controlled, will give room for the Holy Spirit to be working on them and will be yielding to the workings of the Holy Spirit. The fruit of the Holy Spirit includes love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self- control.
15. Single without wrinkle is part of the categories of a man the scripture talks about in Psalm 1:1 whom does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. Their delight is always in the law of the Lord, and on God’s law they meditate day and night.
WHAT ABOUT A SINGLE WITH WRINKLE
A single person with wrinkle is a person that has not surrendered his or her life to Jesus to be redeemed. These categories of single are: A single that is blemish and not blameless. They are yet to be separated from the multitude. They are single that have face all sort of abuse and still carry the scar around not allowing the light to clear off all scars. They are single that has not consecrated themselves unto the Lord. They don’t live a holy life and are not pure, even sexually pure. They defile their body. They have been entangled and soiled their garment in the mud. Live their lives as though they own it. They still carry around the weight of sin in them. They may have zeal but is without knowledge, because they are visionless. They walk by sight and not by faith. They are not heaven minded single, but earthly conscious. They may die not fulfilling God’s purpose, because they run after the shadow of life. They are not spirit minded, they are moved by the flesh, directed by their human understanding. Single that are with wrinkle have in them the act of sinful nature which Galatians 5:19 talks about, sinful nature like sexual immorality, impurity, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, debauchery and the like.
I pray if you are part of the single out there that is with one wrinkle or the other, may the Lord by his mercy clear them off as you decide to be on the Lord’s side.
HOW TO BECOME A SINGLE WITHOUT WRINKLE
To become is to turn into, to be changed in and out and be like that thing. It is a transformation process which starts with crossing from darkness into God’s marvelous light and continue to grow until you fully form into the likeness and nature of God.
2 Corinthians 3:18 “And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his likeness with everincreasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the spirit. So when you receive the life of Christ in you, you cross from darkness into light.
The secret of a single without wrinkle is light.
YOU ARE WITHOUT WRINKLE WHEN YOU GET LIGHT
Jesus is the light of the world. Whoever follows him will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life, that is John 8:12. Darkness also represents wrinkle, so to terminate the life span of darkness is to introduce light. And the light shines and the darkness cannot comprehend it.
Light is the water that quenches the fire of wrinkle. God is the only light that can make your face shines bright, the more you look at his face the more you become like him and all impurity begins to fade away.
Just as a facial cleanser is used for your face to clear off spots so is the light of God use to give you a new life and clear off every fault and imperfection away.
YOU CAN ALSO BECOME A SINGLE WITHOUT WRINKLE BY CONSECRATING YOURSELF AND SETTING YOURSELF APART FOR GOD TO USE YOU .
When you are consecrated, you are declared holy hence you’ve been cleansed from all wrinkle and every unrighteousness. You live a sacred life, a life dedicated to the master’s use. When something is being dedicated for a particular purpose is to e consecrated.
YOU CAN ALSO BECOME SINGLE WITHOUT WRINKLE BY CONSTANT RENEWAL OF YOUR MIND
The word of God says in Romans 12:2 you should not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.
That you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is- his good, pleasing and perfect will.
So the constant renewing of your mind makes you a better single.
Finally, a single without wrinkle is bold and strong. He or she has the mind of Christ in him. They are not timid, because God has not given us the spirit to be afraid but the spirit of power, of love and of sound mind (2Timothy 1:7). He is a focused and purpose drive man, not limited by any limitation. A single without wrinkle person has experienced and still experiencing God’s light, light is always shining on their part and they themselves become light through Jesus and keep making impact through the light. A single without wrinkle life is a life that is directed by the wind of the spirit, whichever direction the wind of the spirit blows they go. They don’t have a life of their own. A single without wrinkle is always swifter than an eagle and stronger than a lion because of the power of God that worketh in them. They are always contented by what they have, hence they don’t give room for any ungodly competition. They are set of people that are security conscious, in all area of security most especially spiritual security. They are not moved by sight but rather by the spirit and by faith. Single without wrinkle is fearless and rugged people who can sacrifice for the kingdom business. They are overcomers: In 1John 2:14 “I write to you, fathers because you have known him who is from the beginning. I write to you, young men because you are strong, and the word of God lives in you, and you have overcome the evil one.” They are anointed for exploit. They are evergreen, flourished, always refreshed and blossom by the lord just like a tree planted by the riverside which brings forth their fruit at his time. Psalm 1:1-3 So a single without wrinkle is fruitful, productive, they do not misuse the grace of God upon their life neither did they His investment on them be in vain. They don’t fade away like the other singles because they are on the Lord’s side they are always renewed just like eagle, their strength is renewed at all time They are without blemish.
