7 Things In Life We Must Treat Like Carrying A Crete Of Eggs

Image
There are things we must carry and handle with extra carefulness because these things are fragile and once broken, it is not easy to put back together and once some of these things get broken, they can lead to huge damage and destiny wastage.
Your Name
Your name is very important and fragile. There are names that stinks in the ears of people simply because, those who bear those names spoilt the name. The way to handle your name with care is to be careful of your doings. Your actions can rubbish your name. A good name can open doors for you & for your children and generations after you. Carry your name with carefulness. It is a huge asset. Here is one of the quotes written by Shakespeare: 'Whoever steals my purse steals trash; 'tis something, nothing; 'Twas mine, 'tis his, and has been slave to thousands; But he that filches from me my good name, my enviable reputation; Robs me of that which does not enrich him, But makes me poor indeed'. Do good and the right t…

Who Decided Which Book Went into the Bible

Image
Just about everyone wants to know how the sixty-six books got chosen to be in the Bible. Why these sixty-six? Why not a few more (or a few less)? Why these books and not others?

In Persecution in the Early Church Herbert Workman tells the story of a Christian who was brought before the Roman governor of Sicily during the last great persecution of the church. His crime? Possessing a copy of the Gospels.

The governor asked, “Where did these come from? Did you bring them from your home?” The believer replied, “I have no home, as my Lord Jesus knows.” The governor asked his prisoner to read a portion of the Gospels. He chose a portion of Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount: “Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” Next he read from Luke: “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.” At this, the judge ordered the prisoner taken away—to his death.
Under Roman law new religions were illeg…

The Coming Glory

Image
What does this theme bring to mind?
Hagai 2:3 'Which of you is left who saw this house in its former glory? How does it look to you now? Does it not seem to you like nothing?'
Beloved, there's a glory coming which is better and able to change and turn situations around. Sometimes you try to reflect on who you used to be. How handsome or beautiful you used to be. How rich or wealthy you used to be. How modest and spiritual you used to be. How holy and pure you used to be.
Originally, God gave you great glory, enough and sufficient to take you through life. But something suddenly happened to it and it's now regarded as formal. Sometimes you stay in your closet and cry and wonder if there is a way to restore your glory. Beloved, I'm happy to tell you there's a reconciliation in Christ. There's a thing we call 'a second chance' in Christ. The bible says if anyone be in Christ, behold, the old things are passed away and all things have become new.

Why Leave Church? - Follow The Story

Image
A youth went to the pastor and said “Pastor, I won't be going to church anymore.” The pastor responded “But why?”
The youth said “Ah! I saw a sister speaking bad of another sister; a brother that can't read well; the worship team living wrong; people looking at their phone during service;among so many other things wrong in the church.”
The pastor replied “OK. But before you go, do me a favor: take a full glass of water and walk three times around the church without spilling a drop on the floor. Afterwards, leave the church if you desire.”
The youth thought : too easy!
And he walked three times around as the pastor had asked. When he finished he told the pastor he was ready.
And the pastor asked “When you were walking around the church, did you see a sister speaking bad about another sister?”
The youth replied “no.”
“did you see anyone looking at their phone?”
“No”
“You know why?”
“No”
“You were focused on the glass, to make sure you didn't tip it and spill any water. It&#…

Harnessing the power of the prophetic 3

Image
Beloved, the LORD permitted us to understand the seeSecond key on the said topic and this day we are going to treat the third and final key by the help of the HOLY SPIRIT.
THE KEY OF PROPHETIC WARFARE
1Timothy 1:18 reads, "Timothy, my son, I give you this instruction in keeping with the prophecies once made about you, so that by following them you may fight the good fight." Other versions read, "This charge I commit unto thee, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on thee, that thou by them mightest war a good warfare;..."
The PROPHETIC is hidden when they are given and it just doesn't happen, the receiver must fight spiritually to enforce it from the spirit realm  to the physical realm.

We don't sleep on the PROPHETIC word when it's released but rather a spiritual warfare must go on to bring it to pass. Prophecies, as potent and spirit filled as they are, do not just get fulfilled.They must be prayed into manifestation.

Beloved, i…

The Smart Wife - A Short Story

Image
This morning, she and her husband had a really bad argument. He came home after work still mad at her, why is she is so difficult to be with sometimes? He walked in the house, ready for another fight.... He walked in and found her cooking his favourite meal: jollof rice with beef stew. Worship music was playing in the house... "Hi honey"  she greeted him... "Hi" he said back... He leaned on the kitchen wall expecting the argument to continue, she is a woman who speaks her mind... But instead, she sang along to the worship song playing as she cooked... "You had a good day?" She asked as she added some seasoning in the pan... "Why do you do this?" He asked... "Do what?" She asked smiling... He stared at her saying, "You make it so hard to stay mad at you"... "It's not me, it's God" she answered... "That explains the worship music. You surround the house with worship" he said... She fed him a portio…

Experiencing A Godly Dating Relationship

Image
Remember that God’s Love is the ultimate.
Knowing the love God has for you means that you do not have to seek fulfillment in how anyone makes you feel (a weakness of human love): the most perfect love comes from God, and it is always yours. He will do much more to fill the love-space than a person ever could. Approach your dating relationship knowing that God likes you and loves you, and there is plenty room for wonders of love, marriage, mature family love, i.e.: constancy (not fickleness) thus enabling you to build and love your own family, of course. (Christians: Always remember He sent His son, Jesus, to die for your sins.) Make sure you are strong in your loving relationship with God. This means knowing that He is always there to help you along the way. Trust Him. Make God the most important in your life. Make Him the love of your life.     

Know the ideal match for you.
Date someone that you would consider marrying. Choose a person that has a similar desire for God, one that will …

Lets Talk About The Second Coming of Jesus Christ

Image
The Second Coming - What is it?
The Second Coming is when Jesus Christ will return to earth in fulfillment of His promises and to fulfill the prophecies made about Him. Jesus Himself promised, "At that time the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and all the nations of the earth will mourn. They will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky, with power and great glory" (Matthew 24:30). Revelation 19:11-12 proclaims this about the Second Coming, "I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and makes war. His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself."

Those who witnessed Christ's ascension into heaven after his death and resurrection heard the angels declare in Acts 1:11, "Men of Galilee…why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from …

Ps. Jarrid Wilson's 10 Ways To Show A Woman You Care

Image
Here are 10 Ways To Show A Woman You Care:
1. Keep your promises. If you make her a promise, then make sure to follow through with flying colors. Rarely keeping big promises isn’t nearly as significant as keeping your end of the deal on day-to-day things. Let her know she can trust you even when things get a little tough.

2.Show her you appreciate her. I can’t think of any woman who doesn’t like to be told that she is appreciated. Write her a thank-you card for the little things she does. Be specific; it’ll let her know you took notice.

3.Tell her that she’s beautiful. In a world filled with advertisements and pins showcasing the world’s definition of beauty, it’s always a good idea to remind your lady that you think she is beautiful. Not only will this give her peace in your feelings toward her, but it will also remind her that you see her beauty if even she doesn’t.

4. Leave her sweet notes and letters. I’ve realized that the element of surprise holds a lot of weight a midst any r…

What Should Christian Women Look Out For In A Man?

Image
1. Spiritually Fit.Putting this into a spiritual context, Christian women should yearn for a man who is frequently exercising his spiritual muscles. Maybe he attends a bible class, midweek service, home group, or even a mens Bible Study. Regardless of what his spiritual workouts looks like, any woman who is seeking a Godly man should find someone who is constantly refining his relationship with Christ.
2. Calm and collective.Proverbs 14:29 states, “If you stay calm, you are wise, but if you have a hot temper, you only show how stupid you are.” A woman after God should always seek a man who can collect his temper, hold his anger, and constantly seek to stay calm a midst trials and tribulations.3. Someone who can lead.Napoleon Bonaparte once said, “A leader is a dealer in hope.” And while I understand that not every man is destined to be a world-renown leader, I do believe that each individual man in this world has a leadership role to fulfill within a marriage. Whether this role be fill…

Write him a thank you card for the little things he does. Be specific; it’ll let him know you took notice of his hard work and long hours.
3.Tell him that he’s handsome. In a world filled with advertisements showcasing the world’s definition of handsome, it’s always a good idea to remind your man that you think he is good looking.

Stand Out: When You Don't Fit In

Image
We all want to be liked, cherished, and appreciated by our peers. But what if I told you that God could care less about these things? What if I told you that God didn’t care how many Facebook friends you have, or how many people follow you on Twitter?And what if I told you that God isn’t worried about how popular you are? In fact, what if i told you that the purpose of the Gospel isn’t to fit in at all, but to in fact stand out…Romans 12:2 - Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.In today’s worth-seeking world, being “liked,” and “wanted” is something we all yearn for. And whether we want to admit it or not, It’s how our culture forces us to feel, and not to mention it’s how our culture advertises us to feel.The World Says:But when we begin to look into the depth of Scripture, none of those things are actually true.God has called us to be different. To stand against the grain. To be a city on a hilltop seeMatthew 5:14. And to be th…

Stop Telling Hurting People To Pray Harder

Image
I remember sitting on the floor of our youth building one Sunday morning while one of the dads who attended our church led a small group for me and four other boys. I was bored, I was ready to leave, and I was hoping he didn’t ask me if I memorized the Bible verse from last week; because I didn’t. 
I was around twelve years old and had just begun a dark and weary descent into what I didn’t know would be a six-year battle with severe depression. All I knew was this; I didn’t want to sit around with people who didn’t know me and act like everything in my life was okay. I was sick and tired of being sick and tired, and I no longer wanted to pretend like my life was just dandy.
Our small-group leader had asked the group to share what God was doing in their lives and how the rest of the group could be praying. After all the other boys had shared with the group what God was up to in their lives, it was now my turn to share. I debated whether or not to give some shallow and cliche’ answer. …

Do You Want To Be Great? Go For It

Image
Ever watched the “American Ninja Warrior.” In this show athletes attempt to complete incredibly challenging gymnastic courses which require almost superhuman strength and endurance. It’s funny that I would like this show so much, since I was never much of an athlete, though I did play some sports as a kid. In fact I was a catcher on our little league team, despite the fact that I couldn’t even throw the ball to second base without at least one bounce.
Anyway, often before attempting the Ninja Warrior course, some (not all) of the athletes make statements like: “I just want to show the world that I am the greatest, strongest Ninja Warrior the world has ever seen. I’ve been training for this for years and I can’t wait to finish the course and hit that final buzzer.” That’s not an exact quote, but that’s what comes across to me as I sit there eating my tortilla chips.
The world pursues greatness. And there is nothing wrong with being diligent and creative and seeking to improve and beco…

Why Does God Command Us to Serve Him, If He Doesn’t Need Anything?

Image
God doesn’t need our work.  
He doesn’t need our money, either. God can get everything done without a heavenly Kickstarter campaign. He didn’t ask for any help when he created the galaxies. He can get along just fine without our peewee contributions to the universe.
He doesn’t need our worship either. He doesn’t need our praises to bolster his self-esteem.
The God who made the world and everything in it, being Lord of heaven and earth, does not live in temples made by man, nor is he served by human hands, as though he needed anything, since he himself gives to all mankind life and breath and everything. (Acts 17:24-25)
God doesn’t need anything. He doesn’t need our worship, our work or our money. So why does God command us to worship, serve, and give our money to him?
First of all, for his glory. Wait a second. If He doesn’t need our work or worship, how does it glorify Him? It certainly doesn’t add anything to His glory. Yet it does display His glory. When we sing His praises togeth…

Our Problems, Social Media & God

Image
When King Hezekiah received the word of GOD that he had to put his house in order since he was about to die, the Bible says, he turned his face to the wall, and prayed unto the LORD. see2 Kings 20:2Our generation, when faced with problems, turn to Facebook walls. (that’s where we post our problems)
Others run to change their WhatsApp statuses in order to inform everyone what they are going through.
Others run to twitter, still others rush to tell their friends.How about we take a lesson from King Hezekiah.When he was faced with a problem he didn’t go around seeking attention from places which couldn’t help him. He turned his face to the wall and prayed unto the LORD and his prayers were answered that moment.Our hope is not from Facebook, WhatsApp or any other website. Our help does not come from people because we may face challenges in life that cannot be resolved by men. Our hope is in Jesus Christ.The time and energy used in posting our problems on the internet or telling people mu…
