Willing to Give His Life for His Brother


Tuesday, December 23, 2014

Willing to Give His Life for His Brother

"You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us."1

In the October 2000 issue of Decision magazine, an anonymous young man wrote in with the story of how he came to Christ. Many years ago, this young man was caught in a downward spiral of drugs and alcohol abuse. His older brother, Terry, had once participated in this lifestyle, too, but Terry had recently become a Christian. It had caused an immediate change in his life. He shared his faith with anyone he came across.

A few months after Terry's conversion, the supermarket where he worked was robbed. One of the robbers shot Terry in the back. As Terry hung between life and death in the hospital, the younger brother finally turned to God and began to pray. He finally gave his life to Christ. He was able to tell Terry of his decision to receive Jesus Christ as His Savior just a few days before Terry's death.

A few months later, this young man got a job at the same supermarket where Terry had been shot. He began telling a colleague about his faith in Christ. The young man remarked that Terry had done the same thing. Then he added, "Your brother said that he would give his life if you could come to know the Lord Jesus."2

Suggested prayer: "Gracious God, how can I ever thank you enough for the gift of your Son, Jesus, who came to earth as a babe at the first Christmas some 2,000 years ago, so He could give his life on the cross in my place to pay the just penaly for all my sins, so that I could have all my sins forgiven and spend forever in Heaven with you. And Jesus, because you gave your life fully for me, please help me to live my life fully for You and for Your Kingdom. Gratefully in your name. Amen."

Note: If you have never accepted God's forgiveness for all your sins and His gift of eternal life, I encourage you to do this today. For help, read the article, "How to Be Sure You're a Real Christian—Without Having to Be Religious" at: www.actsweb.org/christian.

7 Levels of Prayer for Victorious Life


My mentor Dr. Mike Murdock of the Wisdom Center said there are six levels of prayer based on the powerful Lord's Prayer as taught to us by our Lord and Messiah Jesus Christ. But the analysis of the Lord Prayer is in seven petitions and you can see them on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lord%27s_Prayer. And so I added a seventh level to the six levels noted by Dr. Mike Murdock in the following order.
  1. Praise
  2. Worship
  3. Priorities
  4. Provisions
  5. Pardon
  6. Protection
  7. Conclusion.
Our Father, which art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name;
thy kingdom come;
thy will be done,
in earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive them that trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation;
but deliver us from evil.
When before the Collect the priest alone recites the prayer, the people here respond: Amen.
When after all have communicated the people repeat each petition after the priest, the prayer ends:
For thine is the kingdom,
the power, and the glory,
for ever and ever.
Amen.

The seventh level is your conclusion and should end with worshiping God again.

Saying the Lord's Prayer in solemnity everyday is very powerful and gives you two great things, Life Insurance and the Assurance of the infinite Grace of God for a victorious life.

It is important you pray it everyday and in particular in Nigeria, because of these interesting times that fallacy and hypocrisy have become the lifestyles of majority of those who claim to be "Christians" in Nigeria. But only those who are ignorant of the Sermon of Jesus Christ on the Mount of Olives will be surprised.

The abnormal and strange behaviors of majority of Nigerians with their irrational logic are clearly written in Matthew 24, of the Holy Bible.

What determines our true identity in Christianity is not our claims, but the characteristics of our lifestyles.
You cannot claim to be a "Christian" and have the characteristics of a pagan and the only difference is that while you go to church, the pagan goes to the shrine.
It is all mere eye service and lip service to impress and deceive themselves, because they cannot fool God, the omniscient, omnipresent and omnipotent.
But we have to pray for these "Christians" of abnormal behavior and irrational thoughts, because they are actually possessed by evil spirits and many of them don't have the spirit of discernment to see their predicament. They have eyes, but they cannot see, because their visions have been blurred by their conceit, deceit, carnal egos, greed and mischief.

A young woman of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) church was going to wed the next day and came to see me to tell me. And I knew that she was already pregnant and I told her so. And she wondered how I knew.
"Have you told your father?" I asked.
"No," she replied.
"Please, dare not provoke God by going to wed in your father's Christ Apostolic Church (CAC) without telling him that you are pregnant before the wedding," I warned her.
She nodded. But I did not attend the wedding.
Millions of Nigerians have become partners in crime in dubious marriages based on false oaths of lying lovers and foolish or ignorant parents.

The tragedy of these strange days of strange ways of many Nigerians is the fact that parents and guardians we expect to discipline their children and wards in honesty and transparency are even encouraging them to cheat, deceive, lie, rob and steal and kill their fellow humans without conscience and without shame to succeed in the world and even receive standing ovation for escaping without being caught. Parents have become pimps of their daughters.

From Lagos to Abuja and from the Niger Delta to Lake Chad, you will see the evidence of the following:

0 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

Matthew 24 King James Version (KJV)

1 And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple.
2 And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?
4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake.
10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)
16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:
17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house:
18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.
19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!
20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:
21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.
23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.
24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
25 Behold, I have told you before.
26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.
27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
28 For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.
29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:
33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
43 But know this, that if the good man of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?
46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.
47 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.
48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;
49 And shall begin to smite his fellow servants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;
50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,
51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Let us pray:
Rid me, and deliver me from the hand of strange children, whose mouth speaketh vanity, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood:
~ Psalm 144:11

A Simple Powerful Prayer That Brings Results


O my Lord and God, Creator of and Owner of my life and everything you have made in existence, I bow and worship you.
You who alone gives us the breath of life
Answer me as I answer others
And treat me as I treat others,
Because, it written in Galatians 6:7-9:
"Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not."

And it is written in Genesis 8:22:
"While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease."

So, as I believe in you I believe in your word, therefore as it is written, let it come to pass and be fulfilled in my life wherever I may be and wherever I may go on earth as long as the earth is yours and the fulness thereof, the world, and they that dwell therein as it is written in Psalm 24:1.
In the mighty name of Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today and forever.
Amen. I shall testify of your glory in my life in the land of the living for you will never share your glory with anybody or anything else in the heavens, on the earth and the entire universe. And I will praise and give you thanks forever and ever. Amen. I love you.


Bible Study text.
James 4:13-17New International Version (NIV)
Boasting About Tomorrow

13 Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.” 14 Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. 15 Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.” 16 As it is, you boast in your arrogant schemes. All such boasting is evil. 17 If anyone, then, knows the good they ought to do and doesn’t do it, it is sin for them.

Majority of Nigerian Women Are Possessed by Different Demons


 Majority of Nigerian Women Are Possessed by Different Demons

Majority of Nigerian women have been possessed by different demonic spirits from dating, marrying and sleeping with cultists during their school days and afterwards. Many of them are either willing or unwilling victims of these cultists who were their lovers and later married them.
Every cultist is possessed by an evil spirit or demon.
Demons cannot operate on earth without human vessels. So, they need incarnates and many humans in their greed for power and wealth become targets and victims of these demons who possess them and rule them in covens and cults from their impressionable age when they are most vulnerable. 

The fastest method of demonic initiation and transmission is through sexual relationship of fornication, adultery, lesbianism and sodomy.
Hitler was initiated and possessed through sodomy. There are members of both the ruling party and the opposition who are cultists of the evil spirit of sodomy. And millions of Nigerians voters were voting for them at elections and will do so again in 2015 and continue the vicious circle of corruption and terrorism destroying thousands of lives in Nigeria. They reap what they sow. 
God said, reject the devil and he will flee from you. And not dine and wine with the devil or collect bags of rice from the devil in political bribes to vote for him and later come online to lament and whine over corruption and the horrifying atrocities of the terrifying Boko Haram.

These demons promote pornographic and psychedelic music, movies and other diabolical mediums of entertainment that make youths and older people intoxicated and often end up in sex orgies and parties indoors, at parties and other venues.
Once they have slept with their targets and they become victims, the vicious circle of demonic initiation and transmission begins as their victims pass on their symptoms by dating, marrying and sleeping with others in the long run.
A pretty and sexy girl is lured and seduced by a cultist posing and posturing as her boyfriend and then she is initiated and possessed. Then later she discovers that he is also dating and sleeping with other girls and accuses him of cheating on her and leaves him. And he may pretend to repent if he still wants to keep her or will let her go since he has already slept with her. She ignorantly goes on to date or marry another guy and ends up passing on her demonic symptoms to the ignorant guy or husband and others like her also do the same in the vicious circle and they all continue to spread their demonic virus like STDS, HIV AIDS and other contagious diseases from place to place.
Do you know that a promiscuous person's sex history can be traced back to Hitler, Idi Amin or any of the notorious past leaders in Nigeria?

Many Nigerian entertainers are possessed by these incarnates and among them are some of the celebrated actors, actresses, singers, dancers and others. Two of the most celebrated female gossip bloggers in Nigeria are among them. Some First Ladies are also among them.
A first lady who slapped her husband at the airport.
A first lady who had issues with the husband and was sent packing.
A first lady whose husband is a drug addict.
The other first ladies know themselves. But some of the husbands of other first ladies have become possessed by sleeping with "runs" babes and other strange women who are incarnates of these demons from dating and sleeping with cultists. And there is a particular strange woman who is attacking the marriage of the First Lady. She thinks she would have made a better First Lady of Nigeria.

I have mentioned several instances on different posts on Nairaland on Romance and and Literature boards. See http://www.nairaland.com/490349/thing-around-waist.

Let me recall three true life cases.
A close friend who is one of the most accomplished young artists in Nigeria and a Muslim left his Muslim girlfriend after he saw her in the middle of the night talking to an invisible entity who handed her something to drink and she accepted it and drank it.
This happened when he was staying in a tenement house on Solanke Street in Bariga, Lagos.
She later became born again after deliverance from her demonic possession.

The second is a young woman claiming to be a "Christian" who suddenly woke up in the middle of the night and started singing and dancing to the sounds of a marine spirit. She visited me over 100 times to become my lover, but knowing her well, I did not even hug, kiss or sleep with her. But three of my buddies could not resist her sexy body and went on to sleep with her. She manifested in the bedroom of one of them. The other buddy later became a leading cultist at a university in Edo state and the third one passed on in a terrible way. She avoids me till date.

The third one is a young woman who is a black beauty, but could not look straight into my eyes and always edgy whenever we sat together and her legs would be shaking. Why? She was afraid of the Holy Spirit in me.
Some of these young ladies who are all graduates of Nigerian universities confessed to me that they were "Ogbanje".
One particular one took a boyfriend to the Lagoon front at the University of Lagos to perform a ritual. The same girl took another male friend to a "Babalawo" witchdoctor when she was still an undergraduate.

The Holy Bible identified them in the following chapters and verses.

Rid me, and deliver me from the hand of strange children, whose mouth speaketh vanity, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood:
~ Psalm 144:11King James Version (KJV).

Deliver my soul from the sword; my darling from the power of the dog.
~ Psalm 22: 20. King James Version (KJV)
See Are You Possessed By the Spirit of the Dog? 
http://therhema.blogspot.com/2012/04/are-you-possessed-by-spirit-of-dog.html
See also Proverbs 2:16 and Proverbs 5:3-23.

As our Lord and Messiah Jesus Christ said, by their fruits you shall know them. - Matthew 7:15-20 NKJV 
By the following irrational and illogical characteristics you will know them. 

1. Irrational mood swings, and sometimes shedding crocodile tears to deceive a boyfriend or husband.
2. Unnecessary nagging.
3. Bullying. 
4. Insatiable sexual urges making them to cheat on their partners and have multiple sex partners.
5. Ingratitude.
6. Lying and living in denial.
7. Covetousness and greediness. 
8. Talking in dreams to unknown characters. 
10. Having ingrained bitterness, jealousy, envy and hatred for others who are making progress and doing well for the common benefit of the society.

The Solution
These women and men possessed by demons can be delivered and freed by the power in the word of God.
I have witnessed several successful deliverance sessions in true Christian churches.
There are only few true Christian churches in Nigeria. The majority are fake and that is why majority of those claiming to be "Christians" in Nigeria don't behave like true Christians.
Majority of the pastors and bishops in Nigeria don't have the Holy Spirit gift of Discernment, therefore they cannot discern and see through many of these strange children among their congregants pretending to be believers, but are actually cultists coming to churches, crusades and conventions to seek for their targets and victims. 


My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
~ Hosea 4:6King James Version (KJV)

You can be delivered and freed by REPENTANCE.
Repent and ask for the Holy Spirit to protect and empower you to overcome these demons and as long as you don't backslide and return to your dalliances of romance with these cultists on the prowl, you shall be totally freed. But if you fall back to continue with them, they will become worse as they will invite more powerful demons to possess you until they waste your life and use you to possess and destroy others.

Majority of Nigerians Claiming To Be Christians Are Actually Practicing Witchcraft and Not Christianity


Majority of Nigerians Claiming To Be Christians Are Actually Practicing Witchcraft and Not Christianity

If there is any verse in the Holy Bible that best describes majority of those claiming to be ‘Christians” in Nigeria is Matthew 15:8-9
“‘These people honor me with their lips,
but their hearts are far from me.
They worship me in vain;
their teachings are merely human rules.”
This is not the first time the hypocrisy of majority of Nigerian church goers have been addressed and will not be the last until Nigerians who count and see themselves worthy of claiming to be “Christians” show their Christianity in Truth and in Spirit and not in falsehood which is the order of the day.
We must stop deceiving and fooling ourselves, because we may fool the whole world, but we cannot fool God.

Our disobedience is the cause of the widespread violence destroying thousands of lives and properties in Nigeria and disobedience is rebellion and God says rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft (1 Samuel 15:23|).

Anyone who is a true Christian cannot do evil. Therefore, anyone who does evil is not a “Christian”.
Anyone who does anything to harm or hurt another person directly or indirectly is evil.
Anyone who makes life difficult or miserable for another person is evil.
Anyone who is an enemy of the progress and success of another person is evil. And evil is witchcraft.
Bitterness is witchcraft.
Envy is witchcraft.
Jealousy is witchcraft.
Greed is witchcraft.
Adultery is witchcraft.
Yes, ADULTERY IS WITCHCRAFT.
When you have vowed to be faithful to your spouse in marriage and then later cheat on your spouse, you are practicing witchcraft.
Make no excuses for adultery.
If you are no longer happy or secure in marriage, QUIT first and DON’T CHEAT.
If you quit first, no one can accuse you of cheating or adultery. But it is witchcraft to be sleeping in the same bed with your spouse and then go behind to sleep with another person and return with whatever warts and all you have contracted from the person to sleep with your spouse again. For when you lie to commit the evil of adultery, you are practicing witchcraft.
Do you know how many horrible and terrible lies and evils people have done in adultery?
Hurting, harming and even killing others?
Do you know how many innocent children suffer and even die, because of the adultery of their father or mother?

The seven deadly sins are wrath, greed, sloth, pride, lust, envy, and gluttony and each is a form of Idolatry-of-Self wherein the subjective reigns over the objective. And each of these sins is a rebellion against what our Lord and Messiah Jesus Christ said: “Love your neighbour as yourself.”
Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.. There is no commandment greater than these.’
~ Mark 12:30-31New International Version (NIV).

For the totality of true Christianity has been defined by the life of Jesus Christ in pure and true love of which everyone knows is the truth. And God said that without love we are nothing. And if you truly love one another, you can never do anything bad or evil to each other.

As Jesus Christ said, love your neighbour as yourself and not compete with your neighbour. But majority of those confessing and professing to be “Christians” in Nigeria are competing with their neighbours and not loving their neigbhours. Because it is the competition with ourselves that causes the desperation to cheat, rob, steal and kill in bitterness, envy, jealousy and greed.

The evils of witchcraft are also common among those who claim to be pastors and even bishops. But Jesus Christ also exposed then when he said: “You Will Know Them by Their Fruits”

Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thorn bushes or figs from thistles? Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you will know them.
~ Matthew 7:15-20New King James Version (NKJV)

Anyone who is a true Christian and knows the Word of God cannot be deceived, fooled and misled by fake pastors and fake bishops in Nigeria, because by their behaviour and character you shall know them.
What is the difference between the ritual cultist who makes an evil sacrifice in calabashes or earthen bowls and keeps than at the T-Junction of the street and the one in white garment who breaks coconut at the T-Junction of the street at midnight? Nothing, because both of them are worshipers of demons even though the one in white garment rings the bell everyday and shouts verses from the Holy Bible. But by what he or she does is enough to show that he or she is not a Christian. I don’t know when Jesus Christ and his saints broke coconuts or prayed with candles of different colours! May God deliver us.

Anyone claiming to be a pastor or bishop and tells you to go and make rituals in any form at any spot, is fake.
The totality of true Christianity is defined by Jesus Christ and totally explained in the New Testament and anything contrary is falsehood.

Now you wonder why many of those claiming to be “Christians” have been caught napping in the middle belt and northern regions of Nigeria by demonic marauders in the camouflage of Islam? They have failed to follow the instructions of our Lord and Messiah Jesus Christ, because he warned us never to stay wherever the people reject us.
If the house is worthy, give it your blessing of peace. But if it is not worthy, take back your blessing of peace. Whoever does not receive you, nor heed your words, as you go out of that house or that city, shake the dust off your feet. Truly I say to you, it will be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment than for that city.
~ Matthew 10:13-15King James Version (KJV).
We must follow the instructions of Jesus Christ and not disobey them. Only disobedient and ignorant people claiming to be “Christians” will go and stay where the people have rejected Christianity and provoke them to attack and even kill you and then accuse of them of attacking and killing “Christians”.
Are these victims really true Christians or mere church goers?
There is a difference between church goers and real and true “Christians”. By their characters you shall know them. Don’t mistake those practicing witchcraft for Christians.

Who says we need gigantic church buildings and mammoth crowds to prove that God is with us or that we are a Christian church?
What I call "My Church is Bigger Than Yours" Syndrome.
Did God and Jesus Christ command us to compete for the Guinness Book of Records?

My mother of blessed memory (Mrs. Gladys Eke) who read no other book to me, except the Holy Bible said the Holy Spirit does not live in a house built with hands. The Holy Spirit lives in the heart filled with love. And not the heart filled with bitterness, envy, jealousy, greed and hatred, because, without love, no one can please God.
16 But to the wicked God says:
“What right have you to declare My statutes,
Or take My covenant in your mouth,
17 Seeing you hate instruction
And cast My words behind you?
18 When you saw a thief, you consented[a] with him,
And have been a partaker with adulterers.
19 You give your mouth to evil,
And your tongue frames deceit.
20 You sit and speak against your brother;
You slander your own mother’s son.
21 These things you have done, and I kept silent;
You thought that I was altogether like you;
But I will rebuke you,
And set them in order before your eyes.
22 “Now consider this, you who forget God,
Lest I tear you in pieces,
And there be none to deliver:
23 Whoever offers praise glorifies Me;
And to him who orders his conduct aright
I will show the salvation of God.”
~ Psalm 50 New King James Version (NKJV)
Lest we deceive ourselves by name dropping God and making excuses that we are saved by grace and not works, please, examine yourself again. What is grace?

Let me put this out as it is clearly written in Ephesians 2: 8-10, New International Version (NIV)
8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast. 10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
It common practice for many of us to quote “saved by grace and not works” and use it out of context to make foolish excuses for our crimes and evils. The quote said we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus TO DO GOOD WORKS WHICH GOD PREPARED IN ADVANCE FOR US TO DO.

If we don’t do the good works which God prepared in advance for us to do, then we will not enjoy the grace of His infinite love. Those who do good works of God will not do evil.

May God help us all to do good works and honour God always as true Christians and not fooling ourselves in lip service and eye service of falsehood.

Adultery is Not Enough Reason for Divorce


The truth is no true Christian spouse will divorce the other, because of adultery.

Adultery is not enough reason for divorce.

If God did not break up with us in spite of our sins, then who are we to break up with others, because of their sins?

Those who don't know how to forgive will never know how to love.

And God will have mercy only on the merciful

God answers and treats us as we answer and treat others.

Read Matthew 7 and learn from what our Lord and Messiah Jesus Christ said.

Jesus Christ never approved divorce, because of adultery.

No true Christian will divorce his or her wife, because of adultery.
It does not show maturity.

Daily Encounter: Love Me, Love You

Love

"There are three things that remain—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love."1

Many years ago, when I was a youth, I read the following poem that I have never forgotten. It was written by John Oxenham:

Love ever gives, forgives outlives,
And ever stands with open hands,
And while it lives, it gives.
For this is love's prerogative–
to give, and give, and give.

As the Apostle Paul wrote in perhaps the greatest literary masterpiece on love ever written: "If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing."2

Love is much more than sentiment and even a feeling. It's a commitment of one imperfect person to another. It's a choice. It's a byproduct of growth and maturity. It is a gift from God. It also needs to be learned. We learn it from loving people who know us totally—warts and all—and still love us. And we learn it from others who model it, the supreme example being the Lord Jesus.

And remember, we always need to do the loving thing—even when we don't feel loving.

Suggested prayer:
"Dear God, in the words of John Powell, 'Please don't let me die without having fully lived and fully loved.' Thank You for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully in Jesus's name, amen."

1. Paul the Apostle (1 Corinthians 13:13, TLB).
2. 1 Corinthians13:1-3 (NIV).

Because He is the God of All Possibilities


 I thank God for 2014, because He has been making awesome things to happen for me.

Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.
~ Psalm 37:5King James Version (KJV).

These are my testimonies to the glory and glory of God alone, because He will never share His glory with anybody or anything. For all the glory in the heavens, on earth and the entire universe belong to Him and Him alone.

1. I was offered residency at the famous Tyrone Guthrie Centre for creative artists at Annaghmakerrig, Ireland to complete my drama "Chi Amanda".

2. In spite of challenges of debtors not paying me and others running away with my money, and a Nigerian graphic artist abandoning work after I paid him 50% in advance, God sent me an international graphic artist and art director Juvelin Aripal from the Philippines and enough money to pay her to design the second edition of my NOLLYWOOD MIRROR® Series.


3. This is the most awesome so far this year.


I am glad and grateful to God to share the following testimony with you, because the vision for iPost Nigeria was seen in one of the night vigils in our church, Trinity Tabernacle parish of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) in Lagos in 1997, the same year Yahoo launched ahead of Google that launched the following year 1998. I did not know much about the internet and did not even have an email and no personal computer. But something in me told me that the vision seen by our pastor was meant for me. I was working in the office of the General Overseer Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye before I left with his blessings to work as an independent Production Manager for "Money Wise" on DBN TV. Dr.Mike Murdock is also my mentor while Bishop Mike Okonkwo of The Redeemed Evangelical Mission (TREM) and Rev. Wilson Badejo, former GO of the Foursquare Gospel Church have sowed financially into my King of Kings Books International that gave birth to my International Digital Post Network Limited for which I started my first website Nigerian Times International and went on to start blogging in 2005 and today I am the most prolific African blogger with over 30 active blogs and with the most viewed Nigerian page on Google+ (over 11, 400, 000 views so far at the rate of over 450, 000 views monthly).

iPost Nigeria's video news and entertainment platform will be better and higher than YouTube according to the tech experts who have seen the video demo and projected to make US$1 Billion in 12 Months after launch.
While other similar mobile video entertainment platforms are looking for content and even spending millions of dollars on producing content, I already have direct access to regular content 24/7. Then Al Jazeera called me that they are coming to interview me on my Nollywood Digital projects and especially the coming First Nollywood Digital Cinema Fair of my International Digital Post Network Limited.

The iPost Nigeria’s mobile video app will make it one of the most advanced news innovation projects in the world and also one of the most advanced social media networks for millions of the users of mobile phones and tablets in the world. And it has been short listed for the 2014 Fund for Internet Research and Education (FIRE) Awards, African Network Information Center (AFRINIC)'s flagship grants and awards programme, http://www.fireafrica.org/projects/projects/view/299.

For by your words you will be justified and acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned and sentenced.
~ Matthew 12:37Amplified Bible (AMP)

Seeing the Invisible

Seeing the Invisible

"The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge. There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard."1

In A Slice of Infinity Betsy Childs writes, "Are you sitting down? If so, you may be under the impression that you are also sitting still, but the fact is that you are in rapid motion. I'm referring to the earth's rotation; in the course of a day, our planet rotates at the brisk rate of 1000 miles per hour at the equator. Then there's the earth's orbital rate of rotation; we have to travel roughly 67,000 miles an hour to make it all the way around the sun in a year. Are you feeling any motion sickness yet?

"I could hardly be more stationary than I am right now as I sit here before my computer. But in spite of the fact that I don't feel like I'm moving, I know that I am. I see the effects every day in the sun's rising and setting."2

I've never seen electricity but I know it exists because of its numerous effects seen every day in lighting, heating, cooling, running all sorts of equipment—and in "ten thousand" other uses.

I don't know any educated person who doesn't believe in the rotation of the earth or in electricity even though we can't see either of these—or a thousand other things that affect our daily life that we can't see with the naked eye. But many say they don't believe in God because they haven't seen him or they cannot feel his presence.

However, if we want to believe in God, we will see evidence of his existence everywhere we look. As God's Word says, "The heavens declare the glory of God." And as Helen Keller said, "There are none so blind as those who refuse to see."

Basically, we all pretty much see what we want to see, hear what we want to hear, remember what we want to remember, and believe in what we want to believe in. To believe or not to believe in God is perhaps more often than not a moral choice. If we choose to believe in God, we know we are morally responsible. If we choose not to believe in God, we delude ourselves into thinking we can live as we please without any consequences.

However, our disbelief in God doesn't alter His reality any more than refusing to believe in electricity and grabbing hold of a high-voltage electric wire. The end result of both of these is death—one immediate physical death, the other spiritual death which, at the end of this life, is eternal separation from God, the author of all love and life. We are all given a choice about God either to believe or not to believe. And as Joshua said to the ancient Israelites long ago, "Choose you this day whom you will serve."3

Suggested prayer: "Dear God, please open the eyes of my understanding so that I will see the reality of Your existence and genuinely choose to believe in and serve You. Thank You for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully in Jesus's name, amen."
