Marriage: Mark of Usefulness!

Marriage is the first institution ordained by God. This is a fact, however, since the beginning of time, right from the garden, it has been tumultuous.

There has always been issues in the union of marriage and there will always be! We pray for understanding, commitment, determination to make it work, and all, but if it does not work, that does not strip you of the glory of God or your salvation!

I am so happy that the greatest influencer of our faith – Jesus Christ himself, and Paul the Apostle were never married! Yet, they laid down for us the will of God. Neither was Martin Luther until much later!

I am sure glad the woman by the well married 5 husbands and some, yet she met with Christ Jesus one on one! And Anna? She died after witnessing the dedication of our Lord Jesus in the temple. She was childless after living as a widow in the temple all her life!

To all then, who have built doctrines, ministry roundabout marriage and motherhood, equating Salvation with marriage, or should I say to marital bliss, even if it’s make believe, stand back from your high horse.

Jesus came to save our soul! You can be married, live in hell here on earth and end up in eternal darkness, vice versa!

Anyone know Peninnah? It sure would be great to live in eternal bliss from here to there though, don’t get me wrong! This is the ideal! Every soul craves for such! Heavenly right?

It is time to put aside all these divisive doctrine, meant to classify, discourage, and limit people, sowing discord where there should be harmony!

I dare you in all honesty to examine your heart! Are you convinced in there that being married is the ultimate mark of purity, salvation, holiness, usefulness in the kingdom of God? And in the hand of the creator of heaven and earth?

I have so much to say!

But,

Another time.

This Journey! Life

On a journey, any journey, you are bound to meet different people, all kinds, on the stops, along the way, in the same vehicle, or just passing each other bye.

Please my friend, learn to regard humanity in all. Be respectful, polite, and treat everyone as if they are dignatories, for they truly are!

Some, unaware have met with angels and have ill-treated them for they were not clothed in purple. Moses in Median, a prince of Egypt, but a wanderer in Median.

While some, weary and lost, have met others along the path and have been able to direct them through the path they have just come fought from, while seeking for the path home themself. This is being selfless! Giving from what you have, when you lack what you do need!

Just thinking, that hiccup may as well be as a result of how badly you treated that person you thought was a nonentity. What is he gonna do anyways? I will get away with it! Note that someone is watching, and will repay, with what you least expect! Do good!

The people of Sodom brought wrath upon their city when they demanded to do the unthinkable with angels, they saw as mere men. May we not bring wrath upon ourselves, generations unborn!

Father, henceforth, please help us to treat everyone the way you treat us, with compassion, love, kindness, and tender care we pray in Jesus name. Amen

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

For A Fact! The Wicked Failed!

The Lord our God is a good God. He is great and worthy of all praises. When the enemy came in like a flood His Holy Spirit raised a standard against it.

Hallelujah!! Praise Jesus!

When the wicked climbed on your back to break your backbone, you were able to remind him Christ is your backbone for He holds the world in its place. Ephesians 1:15-23, 2 Timothy1;13

Then the enemy came to devour your hands, to render it impotent, but then it was written concerning you before the foundations of the world was laid that these very hands shall be laid on the sick and the sick shall receive their healings. You hands cannot, and will not wither. Mark 16:17-18

Then the enemy came to pluck out your eyes, but then these very eyes will see the reward of the wicked! Psalms 91:8

Friends, no devil can quench the fire within you, rather give that fire room to devour everything contrary to the WILL of God. Revelation 11:5

No matter how many rises against you , they will fall! Isaiah 54:15

The Lord has quicken your feet and made it like a hinds feet! Psalms 18:33

Oh clap your hands all ye people for you shall go out with joy and be led forth in peace Psalms 98:8, Isaiah 55:12

Facts is that you are privy to the devices of the crafty

Have an insightful weekend!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Watch “Some times It takes A mountain – Lyrics” on YouTube

When the Lord finally gets your attention, be rest assured, you are set up for the miraculous.

God will make a sign post of goodness and mercy with your life.

You will become God’s battleaxe with which to pull down entrenched evil and wickedness.

You will become a sign and a wonder.

Trust the process.

Ask for eyes that sees, ear that ears, and a receptive heart.

Accept Christ Jesus as your Lord and Savior today.

Tomorrow maybe too late.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

True Ambassadors! Integrity!

Acts 1:8  But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

According to Luke, this is Jesus’s last word to his disciple, and to you and I. Jesus is saying even now that when the Holy Spirit comes upon us that we will be witnesses in our locale and to the ends of the earth.

integrityIs this true of us believers today? Are we truly Christ Jesus ambassadors? Are we truly representing Jesus to the unsaved, lost, weary, discouraged, downtrodden? Is your answer in the affirmative? I guess not! You and I know that the Word of God is powerful and able to transform lives. We know how to wedge the word to dislodge everything contrary to Christ Jesus, however, it seem the world is not changing, our society, community, families and lives are still what it used to be. We have not changed! We lack integrity! 

Integrity! It means saying something, meaning it, and doing it. Integrity refers to your actions matching your words. Many times we say one thing and act another thing. This makes us not to be taken seriously. We are prone to speak from two sides of our mouth, I mean we say something and actually mean another. We have become two-faced! This need to change for us to impact our world effectively and efficiently for the Lord.

integrity when no one sees

As a parent, you ought to know by now, and as a friend, colleague, part of a group, you must know by now that when someone lack integrity, those in contact with you take your words with a pinch of salt, for it is just mere words. You do not inspire the best in others around you if your words mean nothing to them.

The Word itself carries depth of meaning and powerful by itself, however coming from you, hmmm, may connote a different meaning because your actions do not often match your words. All this is seen and heard clearly!

As a child, my dad very often will come with the driver, a chauffeur to pick us up after school. Dad will always have one stop or another to make along the way home. We lived about 40kms from our school, in the outskirt of our city. Dad will always want to see one or other of his relations, friends and acquaintances on the way. Dad will say, ” children, I will be back in a minute or two, and be gone for half hour. We were an okay family, so most times there is always refreshment in the vehicle with us. There was always a cooler with Maltina and a bag with Nasco biscuit to snack on, but we want to go home and play or something. You know children! We were typical children, restless when in one place.

postsAfter a while, we stopped believing dad’s 1 to 5 means just that. We were actually surprised one day when dad took just about 5 minutes or less. We clapped when he joined us in the vehicle.

Most of you must have been in that situation. You can relate to this scenario right? My children these days ask, “are we just going home after church or do you want to stop by the groceries or something mummy?” Can we just go home please?! “You can do that on your way from work tomorrow mummy!” Guess I took after my dad eh. 🙂

actionsWhere am I going with this? As a bible believer who desires to be a true ambassador of Christ, we must endeavor to match our words with our actions! If we say ABC, then we must act ABC! We must not say ABC, and act DEFG.

We must start living the word, not just saying it, preaching it, shouting it at the top of our lungs. We must be living it day in day out. The Word is powerful by itself! It can really change lives, transform minds and heart! Why don’t we allow it to transform us, renew our minds, so we can truly say something, mean it, and back it up with our actions.

There are too many professing Christ, but very few Christ redeemed, ambassadors of faith. We can all turn a new leaf today. Jesus Christ is able to transform you and I!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
