Dedication And Re-dedication! Are You In?

The invitation has been sent. Have you received yours, my friends? Here it is!

Matthew 11:28 Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

Don’t tell me you don’t have any burdens for that would be a lie! Yes, and that my friend is a burden! Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. There is need to dedicate your life to Jesus Christ this moment.

truth gets enemies

Are you in the faith? There is a need for the rededication of our lives to the Lord. 2 Corinthians 13:5 Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?—unless indeed you are disqualified. But I trust that you will know that we are not disqualified.   Now I pray to God that you do no evil, not that we should appear approved, but that you should do what is honorable, though we may seem disqualified. For we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth. 

Matthew 28:16 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!


My True Status! Not What My Adversary And Circumstances Says!

Brethren, do not be bewitched to disobey the truth. No one shall be justified by the works of the flesh/law! Christ Jesus died for You! Faith in Christ’s birth, death and resurrection is what justify you Galatians 3:1 -9

It is that same faith in Christ Jesus that excludes you from the curse of the law. For Christ bore the curse on that tree at Calvary. He took upon him your curse, so you are free of curses by faith in him alone! That’s all! Faith in Christ excludes you from the curse of the law! Don’t you let anyone deceive you that you are cursed as a believer! Galatian 3:10-14

By faith in Christ Jesus you enter into the changeless promise God made with Abraham. You shall be blessed and be a blessing. By you all the nation’s of the earth shall be blessed and much more.

The covenant between God and Abraham belong to Christ, and since you have faith in Jesus, all the promises belong to you too! Brethren, you are joint heirs with Christ, the seed of Abraham, a child of promise!

May this truth permeate your being. May the truth of who you are in Christ Jesus birth confidence and courage in you!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!


Relationship On My Mind!Making It Home! Successfully!!

Some hours ago, while writing about “Relationships on my mind! Cleaving as a pair!” I prayed that God will gived us peace in our marriages, calm the storms, grant us grace to weather the storm, and restore broken hearts and homes.

You see friends, holy matrimony, marriage is the most important relationship apart from our relationship with Jesus Christ, the success of which can make us or mar us.

However, the success of your marriage or its failure is not the criteria for hearing that phrase, “well done, good and faithful servant: you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your Lord. Matthew 25:23.

Paul was never married, the Samaritan woman had one too many, yet she met with the Lord, she became an evangelist! The only criteria to hear Matthew 25:23 like Billy Graham just heard few hours ago is to believe in the Lord Jesus, his birth, life, and death, faith in the finished work at Calvary.

Friends, don’t let anything that is transient cheat you out of your eternity! Give your life to Jesus Christ today! Put your trust in Jesus totally, lean on him.

Employ your talent, skills and all, live your life for his glory! Eternity is real! Soon enough you and I will be on our way in our 100th year, if Christ tarry! Which will it be? Heaven or hell!!

Choose ye this day whom he shall serve – Joshua 24:15. Nothing in this world is worth your eternity! Your relationships, your worldly achievement, career, accolades, looks, money, power, influence, whatever, it is transient my friends!!!!

Reflect on the truth you already know! Take a stand! Seek to please him – Christ Jesus! Seek the good of His kingdom.

Jesus Christ is Lord! He is coming soon! Are you prepared?

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!


Relationship On My Mind! Cleaving As A Pair!

This is a sequel to Relationship On My Mind!

The lack of truth and trust in our interaction with each other most often spills over into the marriage relationship.” Relationship On My MindTransparency – Truth, And Trust 

Many have no idea of what is expected in the marriage relationship. Marriage is the first institution ordained by God between a man and a woman as long as they live. It is the most intimate of human relationships, and as much as it is plainly defined in the scriptures, it is the most complicated of all relationships.

Why complicated? Complicated in the sense that “they two shall become one”. Genesis 2:23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called woman because she was taken out of Man. 24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

To cleave(verb) as defined in The Webster’s New World Dictionary and Thesaurus has two meanings. One is to divide by a blow: split; sever, and the second meaning is to adhere: cling to, and to be faithful to.

Friends, would you agree with me that it is easy to adhere, cling, and be faithful to one partner as long as they live? This should be the most natural act, like breathing!. You don’t learn how to breathe! On the other hand, cleave as in to divide by a blow, split, or sever, needs exertion, a force has to be applied! You would also first have to decide the spot, stage, and time to apply the force. This should be difficult and as such should not be preferred. Right?

The reality of life is that cleaving, as in to sever seems to be the order of the day. When a man cleaves to his wife, he is meant to cleave, cling, adhere to the totality of her being, all others not existing, and so also for the woman. She is to embrace and cleave to her husband, all others not existing. This, however, is far from what it is. Couples come together these days and jump ship at the slightest smell of wind. And for many more, marriage has become an “act” where a mask is put on for the world, to hide the gloomy hearts. This has resulted in different kind of infirmities- Proverbs 17:22

There is no fortitude to ride out the storm anymore – lack of trust, truth, honesty, faith in God and in each other, desire to please God in obedience to his will, perseverance and determination to work it out has resulted in breakdowns across every demography.

We must remind ourselves that God’s plan trumps all other plans, and life, living, itself is a storm! Since we can not jump ship when living life becomes stormy,(though some do by suicide, that is a totally different topic) we must, therefore, resolve to weather the storm together for calm is promised, its a guarantee for no matter any storm it must cease. That is the order! The question then is, are we ready to hold on till the storm ceases?

I pray Lord for every troubled mind, hearts, and homes. Let there be calm Lord. Peace be still to every union tossed to and fro by storm. To the ones that have shipwrecked Lord step in and do that which only you can do. You, Lord, can salvage anything and make it new. You are the restorer of old ruins – Isaiah  61:4. Most of all Lord, we pray for a fresh encounter with the person of the Holy Spirit. We want to hear you say “Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things” Matthew 25:14-26

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!





The Delivery!

To be an effective and efficient messenger you must really be willing and ready to take the “hard road” regardless of your personal conviction. The hard road here refers to obeying and carrying out instruction as specified promptly and to the letter. It is hard if you are a logical person who questions everything. I always examine things to “see for myself”, that is to be convinced beyond reasonable doubt that it makes sense.

Though a lot of times things do not make sense, however, if God says it, so be it. David at a point was told to listen to the sound of matching on a mulberry tree. What does that mean? How can soldiers match on a tree, no matter how big the tree is, men are not meant to walk on trees. Well, that is the instruction given in 1 Chronicles 14:15 And it shall be, when thou shalt hear a sound of going in the tops of the mulberry trees, that then thou shalt go out to battle: for God is gone forth before thee to smite the host of the Philistines.

Neither should water placed in jars turn into wine. John 2:7 Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim. And he saith unto them, Draw out now and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bare it. When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine and knew not whence it was: (but the servants which drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom,

Many a time also emotions get in the way of our being effective and efficient as messengers. Love also plays a part in our delivery also. Lack of love is what makes people withhold life-altering information from a potential beneficiary. Lack of love, insecurity, greed, and much more will make us to know a remedy for someone’s ailment and not tell them, or see disaster looming without warning!

Jonah was such! He felt that the people of Nineveh do not deserve to be pardoned. He was actually looking forward to witnessing their calamity. Jonah 4:5 So Jonah went out of the city and sat on the east side of the city, and there made him a booth, and sat under it in the shadow, till he might see what would become of the city.

The love of God in our heart will help us to deliver messages effectively and efficiently with the help of the Holy Spirit of course.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!


A Way To Live!

It has been a challenge to declutter my mind lately! Many times I am not even aware that I have junks all over the place! It only surfaces when the sanitation inspector in the person of the Holy Spirit walks through my mind and heart.

I wonder if my mind is different from my heart! Can someone explain please, cos lately my heart seems to be playing tricks on my mind! Hmm! That’s food for thought! Will come back to that sometime!

I found out that a lot of stuff that I thought I threw out a long time ago were sitting on the chest covered by dust. Alas, having been preoccupied gave me a sense of wellness until the dust was lifted!

Okay, what am I saying here? A while back someone threatened what was dear to my heart. Overtime, with the help of the Holy Spirit, I healed and moved on thinking all was and is well.

At a point it seem what transpired never did. You know when there’s an open sore, it’s painful and leaves a scar right. When it’s totally healed the scar would still remain as a reminder of the sore and it’s circumstances. The scar miraculously disappeared I believed for the longest time! Until..

Until I saw similar circumstances center stage before my eyes. The dust rapidly lifted revealing the old wound and kazoom, the old scar appeared!

I revisited the scene and dwelt there until it dawn on me! Is it really worth It? Especially when the circumstances is unchanged? Should I let the inconsiderate action of another steal my joy? The words of Paul in the book of Philippians reflects an attitude, a way of life that will, regardless of the restrictions placed on our liberty, keep our joy intact. To borrow from Chuck Swindoll’s Laugh Again : What A Way To Live!

Maintain your joy by weighing the importance of what is, with regard to your core,your purpose,and goal. Is it really worth your trouble?

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
