We need the mercy of God in a time like this! We also need the power of God to destroy the works of darkness that is so prevalent in our generation. 

It is now expedient for faithful disciples of Christ everywhere to take a stand in righteousness and effective prayers to defend the cause of Christ and win souls!

The devil is all out, using every means and strategies to promote iniquity and enslave as many souls as possible and use them to denounce and blaspheme God and destroy any and every thing that has the mention of God, if possible. 

The devil and his cohorts are all out to destroy everything God has instituted!  The devil's agenda is to destroy everything God has made, if possible, especially humans who are made in God's image. 

And like we see in Genesis 3, how Adam and Eve were destroyed through sin, the devil is still using same strategy today. But now, more aggressively because he knows the end of all things is NEAR! 

More than ever before, it's easier to commit sin. Your phone,  social network, media, computer, clubs etc 

And more prominent amongst the sin of our generation is homosexuality. Top amongst the devil's agenda is the GAY project, to make everyone a Gay if possible or at least make every one accept it. You are a partaker of a sin that you do not participate in but accept!  You are a partaker of the sin of fornication though you don't fornicate but condones and support those who do! 

It is so sad to see the agenda of the devil progressing aggressively, especially in the U.S right in the face of Believers.

I am afraid for the future, mine and that of my kids!  How can homosexuality be RIGHT? How can we accept that there is nothing wrong in been a Gay? This is first a moral issue and most importantly the spiritual implication! Even little children know that it is not man versus man or woman versus woman!  And now we have to brain wash them and tell them otherwise?  I have a divine responsibility to teach my children the right thing morally and spiritually, should I abscond and abandon this spiritual duty for the sake of the media, few individuals or the devil's agenda?  No!  I shall not be guilty of misleading my family!  I am accountable unto God for them! 

Sin is not to be tolerated!  Sin is to be obliterated!  Sin is to be washed away through the blood of Jesus! We are not to be slaves to any kind of sin but to be FREE and serve God faithfully! But the devil wants us to be slaves to sin of all kinds and proportion. 

When you give the devil an inch in your heart by tolerance of sin, he will go miles with you in committing sin. And this journey may continue into eternity with him except you ask Jesus to set you free from ALL SINS!  And make you His own EXCLUSIVELY! 

A lot of the people who are secretly or openly gay today, tolerated one form of sin yesterday!  They gave the devil an inch in their lives and he led them all the way! 

If you invite the devil for a night over, he will stay for days unending, if you let him! 

The only remedy for sin and the devil and his agenda and agents and agencies is JESUS CHRIST AND HIS PRECIOUS BLOOD, THE BLOOD OF JESUS! It CLEANSES DEEP AND CLEAN AND MAKES THE HEART AS WHITE AS SNOW! 

"For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. " Ephesians 5:12 

The days ahead of us is tough as followers of Christ, if Christ tarries! The battle is raging and rages on!  BUT THIS BATTLE IS ONE WE CAN WIN!  IN FACT, CHRIST OUR LORD HAS WON THIS BATTLE AND IF WE SHALL WALK WITH HIM WE ALSO AND OUR CHILDREN AND GENERATION SHALL PARTAKE OF THE VICTORY! 

But we must understand that the battle we fight is not against flesh and blood. It's not against homosexuals or adulterers or fornicators etc IT IS A SPIRITUAL FIGHT AGAINST SATAN AND HIS AGENCY CALLED SIN! 

Three principles or strategies we can use to secure this victory in our generation shall be:


1. Total surrender and faithfulness to Jesus Christ : We have failed this far in this battle because of our unfaithfulness to our Lord and Savior! Jesus is Sin exterminator!  And where there is NO SIN THERE IS NO DEVIL! What a joy to live a life free from sin and free of sin! When we walk with the Lord in total obedience we shall enjoy the victory because HE IS LORD OVER ALL!  


2. Prayer: if we shall be more prayerful disciples, we shall wash many foot free from sin!  Jesus bent down and washed His disciples feet and ask that we do the same!  If we shall bend down more often in the place of prayer, we shall save many lives from sin and the captivity of the devil. Anyone who comes out openly as a sinner needs not judgment but our prayers! All those coming out openly as gay are actually asking for help! They are asking for our prayers ; a washing of their foot that is covered in sin!  And O, we have the water, we have the blood, and how it WASHES THE DEEPEST STAIN, HOW IT WASHES THE DIRTIEST FEET!  If we can bend down in PRAYERS AND TAKE THE WORD AND THE BLOOD AND BEGIN TO WASH! Is there any body God can't change? Is there anything God can't do? O what a testimony it will be, when someone comes out openly as gay, and believers every where pick him/her up in prayers and bend down and begin to pray and wash and wash with the word and blood and the person all of a sudden begins to notice changes he can't explain and BOOM, HE HAS AN ENCOUNTER WITH CHRIST and two weeks later, he is BORN-AGAIN!  O how wonderful will that be! THIS IS WHAT JESUS CAN DO THROUGH US, WHEN WE BEGIN TO BEND AND WASH FEET IN PRAYERS RATHER THAN STAND COMPLAINING AND CRITICIZING AND/OR PLAYING A JUDGE! 

If we shall do the same for people around us who are living in sin of any kind, we shall see the glory of Christ revealed in and through their lives! 


3. Evangelism: the gospel of Christ remains the potent weapon against the devil and his works!  The gospel of Christ is the power of God unto salvation!  The gospel of Christ is the Word, the Truth that sets free and keeps free when it is known!  And how can it be known if we don't share it? How can it be known, when we are ashamed of sharing the gospel of Christ? The gospel of Christ is all about love! We are supposed to share the love of Christ!  But you can't share what you don't have!  We are called to be witnesses!  Or rather, you are called to be a WITNESS! So, if you have not witnessed the love of Christ personally, it shall be a challenge to witness to others. Herein lies the challenge we have in our generation, many preachers preaching the gospel but where is the result? You can't give who and what you don't have!  If you have not experienced the Christ in the gospel, His love and life, you are not eligible or qualified to be a witness!  Have you encountered the real Christ?  Not the Christ a lot of people are preaching today!  Not the materialistic Christ!  Not the Christ that tolerates sin! But the Christ who loves you and gave His life for you!  The Christ who sets free and keeps free from sin! The Christ who died and rose again with all authority and power in heaven and on earth! This Christ is available for all!  If you ask for Him, He will come in! In fact revelation 3:20 says, He is at the door knocking, waiting for you to let Him into your heart not your head or any where else from where His love will flow to others as you tell them about Christ your Lord and Love!  As you witness what you have witnessed, then there shall be power, then there shall be result of salvation because heaven knows your witness is true! 

If you have the real Christ as your Lord, your life will reflect His love and life. And when you preach the gospel, it shall not contradict your life style! 

The gospel is all about love, for God is LOVE!  If you don't have love you are not qualified to preach the gospel of Christ, if you do, your testimony is not true! You may have an audience but their lives will not be gloriously transformed. 

The Holy Spirit is love! That is why Jesus instructed His disciples to wait for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit! If you shall be an effective witness it cannot be done without the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of love! 

If you have Christ and the Holy Spirit and His love, you are required to GO AND MAKE DISCIPLES OF EVERY NATION. Without Fear and/or Shame! 

If people who are doing abominable things are not ashamed of promoting it, why should you be ashamed of the WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE?

"Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven. "

Matthew 5:16 

Light is a very important element!  The only permanent remedy for darkness is LIGHT!  The absence of light is the presence of darkness in abundance! 

" You are the light of the world..." says the Lord Jesus, God the Son,  the Lord of the heavens and the earth! 

The Lord did not say, ' I think you are the light of the world. " Neither did He say, " You are going to be the light of the world. " He said, " YOU ARE THE LIGHT... "

YOU ARE THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD!  So, if there is darkness in your world and the world, it's because of you! 

As light, your calling and purpose in life is to SHINE! And you don't shine hiding under a basket!  Your place is on the LAMPSTAND! 


YOU ARE NOT JUST MANDATED TO SHINE BUT YOU ARE REQUIRED TO SO SHINE! 


HOW CAN I SHINE AS LIGHT? 


1. Through godly and holy living!  Light is light!  Light is pure, light and filth don't go together!  Light chases out filth and darkness!  You can't shine by tolerating sin in your life as a Believer!  The presence of dirt and filth in a believer is an indicator that you have traded your light for something else; or close to trading it away!

 The light that shines through a godly and holy life is bright, very bright and effective! We will not see remarkable result in our generation except we deal with filth and dirt in our lives! We can't embrace ungodliness and greed and pride and immorality and expect to SO SHINE AND DEFEAT DARKNESS! Dirt and filth don't conduct light!  There are LIGHT extinguisher! 


2. Good works: Light shines through GOOD WORKS!  Light cannot shine through bad works! At a time the Church was known for charitable deeds!  Giving to the poor and needy!  Giving to the less privileged!  But now the only form of giving we know is giving tithes and offerings, so we can get ten fold from God and lavish on our desires! Is tithes and offering bad?  It depends on your conviction or motive! 

Do good works brethren!  It is the good works that men will see and give glory to God! Give to the orphans, give to the poor and needy!  Give and don't expect nothing back!  Light just Shines and expect nothing in return!  As long as it is connected to the right source, it cannot get tired of shinning! 


THINGS THAT CAN HINDER A BELIEVER FROM SHINNING! 


1. Compromise: compromise is the basket that hinders the Light from executing it's divine mandate! We are the compromise generation!  Compromise may not stop you from still being a follower of Christ but it will hinder your light from shinning! 

Your place is on the LAMPSTAND!  And if you don't take a STAND, you can't stand on the Lampstand, hence you can't shine! 

There is no middle ground for Light, it's either on the LAMPSTAND or UNDER THE BASKET! 


WAYS WE CAN COMPROMISE :


(a) Disobedience : The Lord wants you to go to point C from point A, and you settle down at point B instead, at least you are no more at point A.


(b) Fear of men: We are afraid of hurting people's feelings! At the detriment of Who?  At the detriment of God and our divine mandate? If I preach this message, I will lose my members!  If I preach to him, he will ridicule me! To whom are you accountable? To men or God? You should rather be afraid of the One who will decide where you will spend eternity! 


2. You: You can hinder yourself from shinning! By unplugging your self entirely from Christ who is the source of your light! Judas Iscariot unplugged himself from Christ for thirty pieces of silver! 

And listen, when you unplug your self from Christ, you may still be able to glow for awhile, but you will glow into oblivion! 


A WORD IS ENOUGH FOR THE WISE!


MAY THE LORD HELP US!

The water that flows through your tap for your daily use has a source. In between your tap and the source are pipes that convey the water. Now, the quality of water you get at the tap depends on what is going on at the source or events within the pipes. 

God is the source of all eternal blessings and His disciples are the pipes that convey these blessings to the end users (people) . The Lord is holy and pure, so what comes from God as the source is pure, life changing and life giving. The Lord requires of us His disciples, the conveyor of His grace and blessings to be pure and holy if not for our sake atleast for the sake of the end users, for we know what a corroded and compromised pipe can do to the water regardless of it's purity and quality at the source. The health of the end users is at risk when the pipe is comprised. 

"but as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, because it is written, “Be holy, for I am holy.” 1 Peter 1:15-16

" but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life. " John 4:14

Water is a very essential commodity of life. We depend on water daily to exist. Anytime there is scarcity of water, life becomes very challenging. People can travel miles to get water. There is no life without water. 

There are different kinds of water, salty water, muddy water, contaminated water, spring water, clean water and there is THE LIVING WATER. 


The Living water is the water you drink and you thirst no more. The Living water is the water that you can't find anywhere else but in Jesus ; only Jesus have and can give the Living water. The Living water does not just quench your thirst but becomes a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life. I love this water. 


Have you drank of this water? If you have not drank the Living water, friend, you have not drank water. Your life cannot remain the same when you drink the Living water. As the name implies it is the Living water and that is what it does, it gives life. The physical water we drink keep our bodies hydrated and alive but the living water keeps the Soul alive. Therefore, the Soul that hasn't drank the Living water is dead. 


This living water is available for whoever. Jesus said,"...whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him... "

 If you really need this water, the Living water, you can ask the Lord Jesus today, right now, " Lord give me drink, that I may thirst no more. "

22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. Matthew 7

May the Lord help us not to be among "THE MANY " that will be rejected on judgment day! 

How can someone call Jesus, LORD and yet be referred to by Jesus as a WORKER OF INIQUITY? 

How can one prophesy in His name and still be rejected? 

How can one even cast out demons in His name and himself be a cast away? 

How is it possible to do wonderful works in His name and not make it to heaven? 

By this, the Lord is making it very clear that prophesying is not the criteria for making it to heaven! You can be an upto date Prophet and Prophetess and be a cast away! 

To have ability to cast out demons is not God's requirement for those who will be accepted into His kingdom! You can be the happening deliverance Minister and still be casted into the pit of hell! 

It is also very clear to us that performing signs and wonders is not a ticket to heaven! You can perform all the signs and wonders and be rejected by the Lord. 

Why many will be rejected is because of INIQUITY (SIN). Instead of working righteousness, they work iniquity! So behind the prophecy, and the casting out of demons and the signs and the wonders is a heart that is sold out to iniquity! A heart that tolerates sin and love sin! A heart whose real lord is sin and iniquity! A heart where pride, greed, lust, idolatry and covetousness and envy and hatred reigns as lord! A heart that is totally sold to the world and her ways! 

It's one thing for Jesus to be Lord of your lips and it's another for Him to be Lord of your heart! 

If Jesus be the Lord of your heart, there is no way iniquity will reign in same heart! Christ is love personified! Love reigns in the heart whose Lord is Jesus! Righteousness reigns, holiness, purity, joy, peace, forgiveness and the fear of God reigns in the heart whose Lord is Christ Jesus! The light of God shines bright and abroad the heart whose Lord is Jesus! Such a heart works righteousness and bears the fruit of the Spirit! 

There is no eternal reward of value for the WORKERS OF INIQUITY other than  eternal damnation to hell.  

Make Jesus the Lord of your heart and let Him be not for a day or month but forever and ever!

John 15:1-4

 "I am the true vine, and My Father is the vine dresser.

Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit. 

"You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you.

Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unles it abides in the vine, neither can you , unless you abide in Me."


Jesus is the vine, and we are the branches. If we abide in Him, and He in us, we will bear much fruit; for without Him we can do nothing!


I want this to be very clear to those of us, who feel that we are something, because of the education we have, job or property. Without the King of Glory, my friend, you are nothing. He wakes you up every morning, put life in you, gave you the knowledge that you boast of, it is through Him we live!

God bless!

The rulers, elders, teachers of the law and other members of the high priest's family had Peter and John brought before them for questioning.

"By what power or name did you heal this man?"

Acts 4: 8-10 Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them: "Rulers and elders of the people! If we are being called to account today for an act of kindness shown to a cripple and are asked how he was healed, then know this, you and all the people of Israel: It is by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified but whom God raised from the dead, that this man stands before you healed.

When the people saw the boldness of Peter and John and realized they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were surprised and toke note that these men had been with Jesus. 

Glory be to the King of kings and Lord of lords!

Anyone who has been with Jesus and have experienced His Power, will never ever be the same!

Bornagain children of God, listen to me, and listen well! Those that were with Jesus demonstrated His Power, by performing miracles, the things He did, when He was on earth.

These people were only with Him, but He is in us!

"My God!" "He tells us, greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world!"

He also let us know in John 14:12 "Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and even greater works than these, because , I go unto the Father."

Therefore, I urge you Bornagain believers, to use the Power that the Lord have given to you.It is not for you to keep, but to use! There is power in the name of Jesus!

God throughout the historical time has ever sought for a MAN and not MEN. Ezekiel 22:30.
This search is deliberate and serious if we look at it from His points of view. God is a God of focus, serious minded and passionate about whom He can trust His divine Ageda. He would not want this trust to be traded cheaply with any other seeming reality of life!

He is therefore in search of a man through whom He can pour the drops of His blessing if he must bless men.
GOD IS LOOKING FOR A MAN OF SINGLE-HEARTED DEVOTION, DEDICATION, FAITHFUL MEN AND WOMEN WHOSE SOUL IS SOLD TO NOTHING BUT HIM! Only with these category can God work through to ensure our generation is filled with His presence as the water cover the sea.

October 31st this year, 224 people boarded a plane to return home to Russia from vacation in Egypt. Had plans for the next day. Had friends and family to return to but that never happened as they all lost their lives from terrorist attack. 

Right before our eyes, terror unfolded in Paris November 13th. At the end of the ordeal, 130 precious souls lost their lives and left behind a heart broken world. 

14 people never returned back alive to their loved ones from a holiday party in California as they died by the hands of their own colleague and his wife. 

Total of 368 people died from the above named events. 368 people like you and me! Had plans and dreams and hopes. And just like that, in a twinkle of an eye, they are gone! 

They died in places where the last thing on your mind is DEATH! They died not ready at all! Otherwise they could have said their final goodbyes to their loved ones! 

I have lost a couple of people that were close to me! I can't help but reflect about Eternity! The truth is I will die someday whether I like it or not! 

The thought of Eternity can be scary!  And it is a legit fear! What is life on the other side like? What is waiting for me on the other side? How does dying feel like? Will I make it to heaven?  All these and many more questions are part of my reflection about Eternity! 

Is anybody really ready to die? I doubt! Does anyone know the very hour he/she is going to die?  I doubt! 

Eternity is a reality we must all be prepared for! 

Death is what we don't like to talk about!  But it is one thing that must happen to all humans if Christ tarries! It is one thing all men have in common! 

It is Wisdom to be prepared for eternity my friend! 

Only the Lord knows how many people were prepared for Eternity amongst the 368 people that died. Or the millions that die annually. 

Heaven is the destination everyone desires to end up after life on earth! But how many people have heaven as their daily priority?  How many are making deliberate daily effort to make it to heaven? We are too busy! Others care less! 

Every destination has a way! Are you in the way that ends in heaven? Or the way that leads to hell? 

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

The best preparation you can make for Eternity is to be in Jesus ALL the time! For you to be in Jesus, Jesus has to be in you first! DO YOU HAVE JESUS? ARE YOU IN JESUS? IS JESUS IN YOU? DO YOU HAVE THE REAL JESUS NOT THE FAKE JESUS? Not the Jesus that false prophets and teachers are hoarding around because of greed! The Jesus that sets free from sin and keeps you free! Not the Jesus that keeps you in sin! 

If you have Jesus in your life TO DIE IS GAIN! You have no fear of death because it is swallowed up in victory! Anytime death comes you are ready!  Death for a faithful disciple of Christ is PASSAGE INTO ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN! ALLELUIA! 

It is now obvious that there is no safety anywhere but in Christ! Safety is not guaranteed anywhere now, not in theaters, not in plane flying in the air nor a health care facility! 

If you are in Jesus and Jesus is in you, you are safe anywhere even in death! 

Do not assume that you are in Jesus, do not assume you have Jesus! You have to be sure about this! Some people in Matthew 7:21-23 assumed they belonged to Jesus only to find out they were WORKERS OF INIQUITY! 

HAVE MERCY LORD JESUS! Figure out where you are right now and talk to the Lord!  YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS ETERNITY IN HEAVEN! YOU DON'T WANT TO END UP IN HELL BY MISTAKE!

When you seek Jesus, you will find Him, but it's up to you what you will do to or with Him after you find Him. Jesus will be to you, what you want Him to be to you! The King of your life, worthy of your eternal loyalty or a king to be mocked, flogged and crucified. 

" Jesus therefore, knowing all things that would come upon Him, went forward and said to them, " Whom are you seeking? " John 18:4

" They answered Him, " Jesus of Nazareth... "


The motive for which we seek Jesus is very important. What we will end up doing to Jesus, what you will end up doing with Jesus depends on your motive of seeking Him. 

Some are seeking for  "Jesus of bread and butter",  others, " Jesus of Prophet A or B", others,  "the Jesus that makes people rich and famous" or "the Jesus of silver and gold." 

These people were not seeking for Jesus THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE. No! They were seeking for Jesus of Nazareth not JESUS THE BREAD OF LIFE , THE CHRIST, THE SON OF THE LIVING GOD, THE LAMB OF GOD, THAT TAKES AWAY SIN...


And when they found Jesus of Nazareth because of their motives and understanding of Jesus, what did they do with Him?  


They didn't make Him Lord and Savior of their hearts. No!  They didn't accept Him as Lord and Savior!  No!  They didn't ask for forgiveness and cleansing!  No!  They didn't accept Him into their hearts and treasure Him till eternity!  No!  They lied on Him, some spat on Him, others slapped Him, one flogged Him, another made Him a crown of thorns and others mocked Him and finally,  they crucified Him! 

From the moment they found Jesus till He was crucified, every other person but one asked for forgiveness. Only one, the thief on the cross accepted Christ as Lord and Savior! Only one saw Jesus as Savior and looked forward to spending eternity with Him! 

Whom are you seeking? The real Jesus or some other Jesus? If you are seeking for the real Jesus, the Christ, that will determine your relationship with Him. 

It's one thing to have Jesus and it's another thing for Jesus to have you. 

It's one thing to know Jesus and another for Jesus to know you. 

SEEK NOT JUST TO HAVE THE REAL JESUS BUT TO LET HIM HAVE YOU! 

SEEK NOT JUST TO KNOW THE REAL JESUS BUT LET HIM KNOW YOU TOO AS HIS FAITHFUL FOLLOWER. 


Remember Matthew 7:22,23


" Many will say to Me in that day, ' Lord,  Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name,  cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name? ' And then I will declare to them, ' I never knew you ; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessnes! '
