the lamb of GodThe Story Behind The Lamb of God.

Numbers 21:5-9 They spoke against God and against Moses, and said, “Why have you brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? There is no bread! There is no water! And we detest this miserable food!” Then the Lord sent venomous snakes among them; they bit the people and many Israelites died. The people came to Moses and said, “We sinned when we spoke against the Lord and against you. Pray that the Lord will take the snakes away from us.” So Moses prayed for the people. The Lord said to Moses, “Make a snake and put it up on a pole; anyone who is bitten can look at it and live.” So Moses made a bronze snake and put it up on a pole. Then when anyone was bitten by a snake and looked at the bronze snake, they lived.

John 3:14 Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, 15 that everyone who believes may have eternal life in him.

All problem is associated with sin. There is a link between sin and fruitless effort, bondage and all sort of ills. Yet the Lamb of God made provision for us by His blood. Mark 2:5 When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralyzed man, “Son, your sins are forgiven.” Read John 5:2-14, Luke 5:2-14

Psalms 37:35-38 I have seen a wicked and ruthless man flourishing like a luxuriant native tree, 36 but he soon passed away and was no more; though I looked for him, he could not be found. 37 Consider the blameless, observe the upright; a future awaits those who seek peace. 38 But all sinners will be destroyed; there will be no future for the wicked.

Jeremiah 17:11 Like a partridge that hatches eggs it did not lay are those who gain riches by unjust means. When their lives are half gone, their riches will desert them, and in the end, they will prove to be fools.

We have been exempted from sin and its consequence by the blood of the Lamb. Only if we confess and forsake all sin that easily befalls us. We must forsake sin and everything that is contrary to the will of God as contained in the holy scriptures. Accepting Christ Jesus as our Lord and Savior making us joint-heirs with Him bestowing righteousness upon us. Psalms 37:39 The salvation of the righteous comes from the Lordhe is their stronghold in time of trouble. 40 The Lord helps them and delivers them; he delivers them from the wicked and saves them because they take refuge in him.

Welcome to the Kingdom of God.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

He Is Unchanging!

Many a time when we are in desperate need for a touch, a special kind of touch from God and we feel its eluding us, we begin to second guess ourselves and God. We wonder why He is delaying in showing up. Why God? Why does things have to be the way they are?
Seldom do we ask God what He is doing? Are there lessons you want to teach me Lord? What virtue do you want to birth in me Lord? Are you in this? Cause I can’t see!!! Give me sight Lord should be our prayers for He said He will be with His own no matter what!! Thank God.

Our dependency should always be in the Lord in good times and bad times. The Lord is good when good things are happening in your life and good when bad things are happening. He is God of the hills and on the plains. What He has promised is never to leave you, never to forsake you – Deuteronomy 31:6, 31:8, Joshua 1:5. He will always be near to you whenever you need Him. The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

State of Our World

The state of our society is so appalling. These boys probably are from religious homes – Christian and Muslim. What an irony?. They are the sort that grows up to be husbands, fathers, politicians, bosses, lecturers, bus conductors, “Alfas”, “Pastors” etc that molest women, myopic in thier understanding of what doing unto others what you want done to you – good morals and mannerism is all about.

Our society needs overhauling! We need spiritual enlightenment, we need practicality of what it means to be good – not hurting another in any way!

Justice for the Obalende Sexually Assaulted Girls

 www.change org
Please sign the petition!!!!

Few years from now, these young girls will be wives, mothers etc burdened by these experiences. Scarred for life at such a tender age! Those raped may never get out of it with damaged idea of thier worth. Their self esteem damaged by these hooligans! And may end up as wives to such as these young men!

There are so many women, married, single, divorced and inbetween with scarred heart, girls trapped in women, crying out for healing and a change to how the girl child is been treated in our world.

Which way forward brethren?

We as parent, grandparent, uncles and aunties guardians, teachers, Pastors and Alfaa – Muslim Cleric should teach our wards respect.

Respecting one another and treating each other how we want to be treated. We must begin to be an example, living transparent and authentic moral lives before our wards. These generation are smart and sees through any double standard we try to project.

We must go back to the basics now! And for those of us in diaspora saying only in Naija can such happen. Look closely!! It is happening in our campuses, high school parties etc. Young men drugging and forcing themselves unto incapacitated girls.

The wicked is really using this act “”sex”” beautiful as intended by God to enslave uncultured souls.

Sound the alarm and may all ears hear! The world is decaying! Only faith in Christ, living by faith and witnessing to others about Jesus Christ can stop the inevitable total and spiral decadence!

Jesus still saves! He loves you! Be born again!!

Repent! Repent! Repent!

Cloud – Clarity!

Numbers 10:11 On the twentieth day of the second month of the second year, the cloud lifted from above the tabernacle of the covenant law. 12 Then the Israelites set out from the Desert of Sinai and traveled from place to place until the cloud came to rest in the Desert of Paran. 13 They set out, this first time, at the Lord’s command through Moses.

May every cloud covering your sight, hindering you from seeing clearly be lifted in Jesus name. May the light of God shine through every cloud to make your path clearer in Jesus Christ mighty name. Amen! Every fog of the mind dissipate in Jesus name. No more confusion!!!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Relationships : Love – Divine, Marriage, Divorce, & Destiny!

Friends, no one that comes to Christ will He cast out. John 6:37 “All those the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away.”  What an assurance to know that no matter how far you’ve gone in your sin, Jesus Christ is waiting with open arms to welcome you into His Kingdom. You only need to turn around and run into His open arms.

My dear friends, do not let the facts of your life deprive you of eternity. Do not let one or two, or even six failed marriages, business, health or whatever the case may be steal your joy and deprive you of living life fully. Your marriage failed? Yes, it is painful and the love of Christ will heal you. It may take time but please note that you will get over the loss. Will you let that bump on the road to destiny deprive you of eternity?

 

Marriage is the first institution ordained by God and trust me the enemy of our soul, our own poor judgement and many factors mitigates against God’s good intentions. How did we get here? What happened that makes that better half that just thinking about them a while ago, releases countless butterfly’s inside of us, but now you feel like throwing up, you are repulsed by them. What happened? That which was good suddenly is bad now? Which way forward? I will be addressing these questions subsequently, and your response is welcome anytime here or by email: joansanusi@gmail.com

You, my friend need to retrace your steps back to your savior. Looking at yourself through the eyes of Christ is the only way to be healed and make sense of your predicament. The only solution is still in the word of God that never fails!

No matter how we explain it, or justify it, God hates divorce! He hates it when we hurt, when our hearts are broken like a bird with broken wings and we can’t fly.  Jesus wept when He heard Mary and Martha sorrowing over their brother Lazarus in John 11:33 When Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who had come along with her also weeping, he was deeply moved in spirit and troubled. 34 “Where have you laid him?” he asked.  “Come and see, Lord,” they replied. 35 Jesus wept. 36 Then the Jews said, “See how he loved him!”

Every time you weep over the death of love in your marriage, Jesus Christ weeps too. He feels what you are feeling my friend. He sees your broken heart, dreams, distorted view, Jesus feels your pain! And, He wants to suite you, to pour the oil of gladness upon your heart, to make you feel again and live an abundantly fulfilling life.

Contrary to what you are thinking, divorce is not a death sentence! Death sentence is when you accept defeat, accepting the lie of the enemy that Christ can never accept you into His kingdom. You will still be used of God – read the story of the Samaritan woman in John chapter 4. Let hope and faith arise in you! Arise and shine friends!!!!

Relationship mishap incapacitate. It deprives one of full joy and makes one to operate far below potential. This does not have to be so my friend. You can turn your marriage, your life around even for God’s glory. As long as it’s called today, it does not matter what stage you are, there is room for a turn around. Turn away from sin first, repent and ask the Lord to help you and my friend, you will be accepted in the beloved!

Think on this friend. Jeremiah 1: 5” Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I have appointed you a prophet to the nations,” This was before your sex was known! What you would be on earth has been predetermined before you were conceived, how then can a failed marriage or whatever terminate the mandate of God upon your life. I guess God knew you would be divorced, remarry and divorced again and again like the Samaritan woman, yet He hasn’t changed His mind concerning you. You have a say friend! Determine to cooperate with the Lord by forsaking sin, living a holy life as best as you can, leaning on the Holy Spirit to help you every which way! We must not continue in sin that grace may abound – Romans 6:1. Far be it! 

Ephesians 1: 3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ: according as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: 5 having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, to the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.

Prayer: Father, help me to meet up to the standard of the requirements of the new covenant, and bless me through it, in Jesus Name. Amen – Open Heavens Devotional

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
