“Search the Scriptures.” John 5:39

scripturescroll

The Greek word here rendered search signifies a strict, close, diligent, curious search, such as men make when they are seeking gold, or hunters when they are in earnest after game. We must not rest content with having given a superficial reading to a chapter or two, but with the candle of the Spirit we must deliberately seek out the hidden meaning of the word. Holy Scripture requires searching–much of it can only be learned by careful study. There is milk for babes, but also meat for strong men. The rabbis wisely say that a mountain of matter hangs upon every word, yea, upon every title of Scripture. Tertullian exclaims, “I adore the fulness of the Scriptures.” No man who merely skims the book of God can profit thereby; we must dig and mine until we obtain the hid treasure. The door of the word only opens to the key Continue reading …

DEVOUT MUSLIM HEZBOLIAH MILITANT SEES JESUS

We are all slaves. However there are two types of slaves. We can either be slaves to righteousness and holiness or saves to sin and depravity. In John 8:34, Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, everyone who sins is a slave to sin. Sin is an act of disobedience and lawlessness. Those who are slaves to sin are fathered by Satan while those are slaves to righteousness and holiness are fathered by the who brought light to the world. In heaven he was called the “Word” of God for he was not created but was in the beginning with God. Apostle John got the revelation of thus, 1 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made Continue reading …

What to gain from caring for the poor

poor

Blessed is he that considereth the poor: the LORD will deliver him in time of trouble. 2 The LORD will preserve him, and keep him alive; and he shall be blessed upon the earth: and thou wilt not deliver him unto the will of his enemies. 3 The LORD will strengthen him upon the bed of languishing: thou wilt make all his bed in his sickness. Psalm 41:1-3. Brethren, remember those who are in need around us. Care for the less previlage in and and about us. Jésus-Christ said in the book of Matthew 26:11,”The poor you will always have with you, but you will not always have me”. In Matthew 25:34-39 ,our lord used the parable Sheep and the Goat to illustrate how he expects us to care for others who are struggling for the basics of life, “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, Continue reading …

WHERE ARE THE YOUTHS?

socialnwk

If you followed my article titled “HOW TO GET BACK THE YOUTHS”, then you can follow on with this article. But if you have not read it, please go back and read that. My articles are short for I desire not to burden you with words. On the 2nd day of July, during our youth conference, I was passing along the hostel area to get our delegates to come and help to clean the compound for the day’s program. It was about 7am in the morning. A young lady approached me and said to me, “Leader, please do you have INSTAGRAM on your mobile? Hmmm! I was surprised. “INSTAGRAM? This early in the morning?” I muttered within me. To her I said, “I do not think I have it, I haven’t used it before. Let me check.” I was just being polite, handling her as an egg so that I Continue reading …

HOW TO GET THE YOUTHS BACK

youths

It was just in the afternoon on the 11th day of July 2016. I was just working the cloud when a question just dropped in my spirit: WHERE ARE THE YOUTHS?”, the voice asked me. As I continued to ponder over it, the same voice solemnly told me: “Until you know where these youths are, getting them back is impossible”. “Yes”, I concurred. Therefore, in this article, I just want to share with us on strategies of getting the youths back to the church and back to God. Before I do, we need to first of all understand what church is. Until we do, we will not appreciate the results of the efforts we will be making if we implement the solutions I will be sharing with us in this article. First, I want to say categorically that the church of our Lord Jesus Christ is not a building anywhere Continue reading …

Stop Lassa Fever

Hello Friends! Today, I want to share with us on something really important. For now it seems that the fumes are down. Yet, I dare tell you that something is still happening under the closed doors of ignorance around the world especially in developing countries like Nigeria. What am I talking about? It is the dreaded LASSA fever which has been proven to be transmitted by infected rats. When the menace of this ugly disease was high, the news all over carried it. It was given a national attack. Virtually everyone that has internet enabled phone connected to social media saw the information and even helped in transmitting the same for their loved ones to benefit from. This is good, but now what is happening? Do you still wash your hands with soap and water? Do you still fight against rats? How often do you cover your food items in air-tight Continue reading …

FALSE HUMILITY by Emmanuel Ogbuefi

humility

…….In Christianity today, we see that all is not well. We are in a generation of ‘actors’ where everybody lives with false performance and presenting the actual reality and personality of who they are not. We tend to present the best of ourselves and showcases what we are not. They taught us that we don’t have the second chance to create the first impression. So we always ‘ act and perform’ as if we are on the stage. We present the fresh and best wine each time we meet someone for the first time leaving such person with an impression that we have the great and best wine. John 2:10 said something that I want to share ‘’And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse:……….’’. This was the story of the Miracle at Continue reading …

LIFE IS A STAGE

Life is a stage. You come and play your role and get down. No replay is available for any since too much persons are still in line waiting for their turn; some to make a difference, others to drag men to hell. Don’t be a victim, how? Many people are already in the net of the devil. Some cannot live their evil ways not because they like it, but because they lack the power. Many are tired of the church, because the church also has left speaking the truth and going after mammon. Many rich men have had their eyes closed with titles. Many are ashamed of going to the church, others are ashamed of answering altar calls because of what the people around will say. The worst person in the world knows what is good and what is wrong, yet he lacks the ability to do what is right. Continue reading …

SPIRITUAL GOSSIP 2

SPIRITUAL GOSSIP 2 Grace and peace be multiplied unto you all according to the knowledge of God’s provision for the deliverance of mankind. In my first article, I wrote concerning the covenant provision for God-man relationship, which covenant was meant for one to replace the other and not to go side by side with it. In the parable, Jesus demonstrated that, likening the kingdom of God to mean two scenarios of coming into a covenant relationship with the father. Our study was not centered on stating and addressing these two covenant relationships by taking them by themselves, but to use the spiritual characteristics showing forth as a result of the mentality developed as a result of wrong perception of the two covenants relationship. The two characteristics we saw were: Comparing oneself with another Boasting by reason of achievement by works. Before we ended, I stated that we will not end Continue reading …
