We Must Stop Fooling Ourselves Pretending To Be Christians


If the life of Jesus Christ does not reflect on our own lifestyles, then we are only fooling ourselves, because we cannot fool God.

I see multitudes of churchgoers, but not many of them are Christians.
We may fool the whole world, but we cannot fool Almighty God.
Why should we continue to live in conceit and deceit?
That is why there are more fake pastors than real ones and more false prophets than true ones.
And there are many wolves in sheep clothing in the midst of the flock. 

Fools pretending to be Christians, but are full of scams and whims of avarice, caprice, malice and prejudice in the world.

Our Lord, Saviour and Messiah Jesus Christ clearly showed us the truth as written in the books of Matthew and John I have quoted below.

True and False Prophets
15 “Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. 16 By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? 17 Likewise, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.
Judging Others
1“Do not judge, or you too will be judged. 2 For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.
3 “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? 4 How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.
6 “Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces.
Ask, Seek, Knock
7“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.
9 “Which of you, if your son asks for bread, will give him a stone? 10 Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? 11 If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him! 12 So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.

The Narrow and Wide Gates
13 “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.

True and False Prophets
15 “Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. 16 By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? 17 Likewise, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.
True and False Disciples
21 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ 23 Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’
The Wise and Foolish Builders
24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. 26 But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”
28 When Jesus had finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed at his teaching, 29 because he taught as one who had authority, and not as their teachers of the law.
Matthew 7
Jesus Reinstates Peter

15 When they had finished eating, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?”

“Yes, Lord,” he said, “you know that I love you.”

Jesus said, “Feed my lambs.”

16 Again Jesus said, “Simon son of John, do you love me?”

He answered, “Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.”

Jesus said, “Take care of my sheep.”

17 The third time he said to him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?”

Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, “Do you love me?” He said, “Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you.”

Jesus said, “Feed my sheep.

You Are Destined for Greatness


Study Champions.
David was a champion. Samuel was a champion.
They walked the path of obedience. Learn from their mistakes, their successes, their lives. Losers build their lives around their weaknesses.
Champions build their lives around their strengths. You are destined for greatness, too.
Talk it. Believe it. Live it.
Champions simply use the Master Key of Obedience.

"And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gedeon, and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthae; of David also, and Samuel, and of the prophets: Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens," (Hebrews 11:32-34).

My Grace is All You Need




Each time he said, "My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness." So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.

Majority of Nigerian Muslims Are Religious, But Not Spiritual


Majority of Nigerian Muslims are religious devotees of Islam, but lacking spiritual relationship with God.
They are even clueless about the Holy Spirit.
They simply follow dictation and recitation without any independent relationship with God.
They follow the rote learning system and have the same herd mentality. And majority of them are fatalistic and unrealistic.

They became Muslims by dictation and not by ratiocination.
Their relationship with God has no depth.
That is why the most ignorant and uninformed majority can be easily manipulated and misled.

The very brilliant daughter of an Islamic leader and lecturer at one of the leading universities in Nigeria asked her father many questions on how they can simply be religious without being spiritual. She said her IQ could not accept such irrational resolution. So, she stopped following their Islamic religion and then challenged Almighty God. She asked God to reveal Himself and how to connect with Him or she would become an atheist. Believe it or not, God answered her and told her that she should follow a group of her fellow students on campus when they would be going for their evening fellowship. And that was how she became a Christian. Her very strict Muslim father allowed her without dispute, because he knew she would not lie to him and he couldn't fault her logical choice.

There is a big difference between being religious and being spiritual.
Religion is empty without the spiritual connection with God. And the Holy Spirit is not a myth. It is the Truth. The spiritual essence of our existence.

Jesus Christ is the Only Way To Salvation


No matter how many times other religions lie in falsehood, our Lord, Saviour and Messiah, Jesus Christ is the only answer for the salvation of everyone. Anything contrary is a lie.

John 14:6 Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
