How Magnificent You Are, O Lord!
How magnificent you are to me
How magnificent for my eyes to see
To see the wonders of your creations
Your magnificent creations beyond human imaginations
To behold the beauty of your holiness
And to behold the glory of your righteousness.
Refrain: How magnificent you are, O Lord!
You are highly exalted throughout the ages
And we praise you in our different languages
Praising your holy name from nation to nation
As we rejoice in the joy of salvation
Because we are the redeemed of the Lord
And we have become the children of Almighty God.

The contradiction in the lives of majority of Nigerian church goers who claim to be Christians is that their lifestyles are contrary to the commandments of Jesus Christ and they don't even follow His teachings. And that's why they have empty lives.
Our Lord Jesus Christ said:
Matthew 5:13 "You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.
Matthew 5:16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
Luke 11:33 "No one lights a lamp and puts it in a place where it will be hidden, or under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, so that those who come in may see the light.
Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.
NOW LOOK AT YOUR LIFE
Does your life have any saltiness (worthiness) to your society or you are just living for yourself?
Is your life shining in the world?
Do you shine for others to see your good works?
Or you don't even have any good work to show at all?
Lest we forget, your works are your achievements and your achievements are your legacy.

"See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland."
~ Isaiah 43:19, Holy Bible.
One thing most people don't know about Almighty God JEHOVAH is the awesome fact that He loves doing new things on earth! New creations. New things in restoration and new things in transformation.
God has never failed to grant me the grace to achieve new things in my life and use me to achieve new things in the lives of others such that totally unknown people become known once they meet me. That's the anointing of my calling.
Since 1997 after that night vigil in the Trinity Tabernacle Parish of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) when our Pastor, Afolayan prophesied the coming of the Internet of Things (IoT) to revolutionize mass communication and transform the ways of life in the world, we have been witnessing unprecedented things. Yahoo launched in that same 1997 and followed by Google in 1998 when I started a new job as a counselor in the Redemption Light, official magazine of RCCG in the office of our General Overseer, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye. Then I joined the Editor, Mrs. Josephine Dirionyemma and her husband, Mr. Vitalis Dirionyemma as a Production Manager when they started their "Money Wise" on DBN TV in 1998. Then in 2000, I registered my first company, King of Kings Books International. New things happened every year. It is either I produce a new play or publish a new book or blog. In 2013, two new things happened! The launching of my Screen Outdoor Open Air Cinema (SOOAC) with the first edition of the popular NOLLYWOOD MIRROR®Series and I brought "Girl Rising" to celebrate the first United Nations' International Day of the Girl in Nigeria In 2014, the second edition of the NOLLYWOOD MIRROR®Series came out; I launched Transform Nigeria Network on Facebook and Twitter sponsored by the Transformation Group of former President Goodluck Jonathan and I started the Girls United Together for Success (GUTS) project. In 2015, I published "The Victory of Muhammadu Buhari and the Nigerian Dream" and I cosponsored the Nigerian premiere of "He Named Me Malala" documentary film of the brave Pakistani school girl, Malala Yousafzai, the youngest Nobel Prize winner. Then last year 2016, more new things were achieved. The film production of my "Lagos in Motion" documentary with the publication of the photo album which Amazon released for worldwide distribution and I started my Screen Naija YouTube channel. And as I welcome the New Year with thanksgiving to Almighty God JEHOVAH, He has already shown me that He will do more new things in my life in the abundance of His infinite Grace. And I don't want you to be left out of the awesome goodness from the Throne of Grace of God. Therefore, be ready to achieve new things in 2017 from grace to grace.
Cheers for our outstanding success and victory!

The Amnesia of Ingratitude: Between A Christ Embassy Brother and An RCCG Brother in Lagos
He stayed there until one day without notice he left and never returned to thank the RCCG brother. His girlfriend also appealed to the RCCG brother to help her meet anyone who would assist and boost her ambition to be an actress and model. The RCCG brother introduced her to another member of the RCCG well known in Nollywood as a popular film writer and Publisher/Editor of the international NOLLYWOOD MIRROR®Series. The God sent gracious man did his best for her and introduced her to the biggest filmmakers in Nollywood.. Even though she was not tall which is the standard for his criteria, he made her a national celebrity within three years and she received hundreds of thousands of naira from him to support her through the university and motivate her to succeed. But like her boyfriend she did not return to show gratitude to the RCCG brother.

1. Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
2. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.
3. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.
4. Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
5. Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
6. Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;
7. Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
8. Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
9. For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
10. But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.
11. When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
12. For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
13. And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
~ 1 Corinthians 13 KJV
