Romans 8:14-39. King James Version (KJV) Holy Bible.
14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
19 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.
20 For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope,
21 Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.
22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.
23 And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.
24 For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?
25 But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.
26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
27 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.
28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.
30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.
31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
33 Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth.
34 Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.
35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

(For my great elder brother, Godwin Nnamdi Eke, aka "Champ". We love you and only Almighty God JEHOVAH knows and loves you most. He knows best and we are grateful to Him for giving us such a great brother in you.)
For our Almighty God JEHOVAH omnipresent reigns!
Sometimes when rain falls
They are showers from heaven
To wash away our pains
And wipe away our tears
Then the sun shines
As heaven smiles.

Every October 11 is celebrated worldwide as the United Nations' International Day of the Girl Child.
Every October 11 is also a thanksgiving day for me to recall and testify to the glory of Almighty God JEHOVAH NISSI what He did for me and more than 300 secondary school girls and others on Sunday, October 11, 2015, when the enemies of progress shut the gates of the Silverbird Cinemas at the Silverbird Galleria on Victoria Island in Lagos to stop our Nigerian premiere of "HE NAMED ME MALALA". But they failed woefully when the divine intervention of our awesome Almighty God of infinite possibilities answered our prayers instantly and sent help from above to prove that His banner over us is love for He is the Almighty JEHOVAH NISSI. The doors were opened and we went in and filled the largest cinema hall that the seats were not even enough for us. And Almighty God JEHOVAH JIREH did not only pay for the time, He also fed all His children with hundreds of the packs of sweet popcorn and big plastic bottles of Coca Cola and Fanta as we watched the awesome documentary film of Malala Yousafzai, the youngest winner of the Nobel Prize for Peace for her outstanding advocacy for the education of all underprivileged girls in dangerous situations in the world.
Therefore, as we celebrate another International Day of the Girl today, join us to shout HALLELUJAH!
Almighty God always fights and wins every battle evil doers wage against His children. Which many of those who have challenged and confronted me have been defeated and disgraced in the end.
This testimony is to the glory of my one and only Father, Almighty God JEHOVAH.

Both unfaithfulness and ungratefulness are twin demons of the same father, Satan.
Unfaithfulness and ungratefulness are actually symptoms of rebellion and witchcraft
Beware of unfaithful and ungrateful people.
Prostitutes are better than ingrates and parasites and spongers.
They rush to receive, but unwilling to give and share.
They want to reap where they did not sow.
They forget that without sowing a seed, there is no reaping of harvest.
As the saying goes; don't cross the sea for those who will not even cross a puddle for you.
Dogs will be dogs.
Unfaithfulness and ungratefulness are most common among the hypocrites and ingrates claiming to be "Christians", name dropping God and quoting verses from the scriptures, but they are possessed creatures of the Father of Lies, Satan.
Ungratefulness drives grace away.
2 Timothy 3:1-5:
"But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people." #Holyspirit
2. Proverbs 17:13 Evil will never leave the house of one who pays back evil for good.

The Consequences of Choosing Sin
It is obvious that the grace of God is overwhelming, for all of us. Does this mean we can continue in sin, while ignoring the repeated call from the Father to live holy, as He is holy? No. There is a big difference between struggling with sin, with a heart that longs for purity and victory, and choosing the way of sin, from a rebellious heart. Weakness is not the same as wickedness. Both result in sin, but with a different outcome.

"The king said to Daniel, "Surely your God is the God of gods and the Lord of kings and a revealer of mysteries, for you were able to reveal this mystery."
- Daniel 2:47, Holy Bible.
God reveals a lot to His prophet.
For His Holy Spirit is a revealer of secrets.
Even the hidden thought of the heart of hearts.
For the revelation of the truth.
For He hates lies.
Liars are not of God.
They are of Satan, the father of all lies.
It is written in John 8:44:
"You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father's desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies."
These liars may be regular church goers; carry big copies of the Holy Bible; quote from the holy Scriptures and fond of name dropping God in their conceit and deceit. But it is written in Matthew 7:16:
"By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles?"
The words of knowledge expose their falsehood which they use to deceive themselves in the world.
They use Christianity as camouflage.
But it is written in Psalm 2:1 KJV:
"Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?"
A true believer of God receives the word of knowledge through the Holy Spirit.
When you are praying and you see a dog, it means beware of dogs in your life among those pretending to be your friends.
Dogs are only after what they can eat from your hands. They don't have any dignity or nobility. They are dogs.
When you see a broken vase or with cracks, it means that a business, friendship, relationship or marriage is fragile.
When you see pouring water in a basket it means a waste of time no matter how much attention is given to the person.
When you see yourself playing with a snake, it means that someone close to you has serpentine spirit.
It is written in Corinthians 10:9-10 (KJV) –
"Neither let us tempt Christ as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed of serpents. Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer".
Therefore, present everyone in your life and work to the Holy Spirit in fervent prayers for the revelation of the true character, so that you will not be deceived and destroyed.
