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!
