Outrageous Self-revenge.   Leave a comment

Do you know that you cannot manage your home successfully on do-me-I-do-you (self-revenge) basis? Anytime you purpose to take vengeance, it will always be disproportionate, especially if you are “rich” in anger.

I call this “Killing For Wounding?”

The statement of Apostle James in chapter 1:20 is entirely right. It reads:
“So then, beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath; for the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God.”

Wrath destroys! It is a senior officer to anger. Note that anger itself is a letter “d” short of danger. So, anger and wrath are enemies of anything good.

It is not good at all to make a final decision, especially when it is negative, when you are angry. I don’t even know how easy or possible it is to make a good and positive decision when you are angry.

In Ephesians 4:26, every believer is exhorted to be angry with a strict condition that before sunset, it must evaporate. That is God’s standard for His people.

Even you must control it efficiently within its short period of its allowed existence. Otherwise, you can say or do foolish things you will live to regret for the rest of your live.

Never become a fool, don’t allow your emotion of anger to control you.

If anger is dangerous, wrath is more! It inflates every event that happens. It blows things out of proportions. It leads to award of awkward penalties not commensurate with what happened. The penalty is always more than the offence.

The initiator of murder in the Holy Bible, Cain, killed his brother, Abel, out of sheer envy. Why? God accepted the latter and his offering but rejected the former and his offering.

Anger set in. It grew into wrath which caused murder. Abel was killed for an act he did not author. Cain ought to have ironed things out with his Maker but he did not! He passed the bulk on innocent and righteous Abel. So the Lord avenged him.

“Then Lamech said to his wives:
‘Adah and Zillah, hear my voice;
Wives of Lamech, listen to my speech!
For I am killed a man for wounding me,
Even a young man for hurting me.’ ” Genesis 4:23.

Killing for wounding!

Whether a man is innocent or has commited an offence, self-revenge in wrath is not the solution.

Lamech did not show an evidence that the young man attempted to kill him so in an attempt to defend himself that fellow was killed.

He leaves no one in doubt as to what happened: the young man wounded him intentionally or otherwise.
Killing was greater than wounding.

He also disclosed that the young man hurt him. The wounding and hurting could be physical, emotional or otherwise but Lamech failed to rule over his spirit. Therefore, his feelings of wrath pushed him to commit murder in return.

He knew the implications and consequences of his action very late. Verse 24 discloses,
“If Cain shall be avenged seven-fold,
Then Lamech seventy-seven fold.”

Did Lamech remember this before the killing? No! After his sense of reason returned from the prison of wrath, he realised that there are penalties to pay for his misdeeds.

Dearly beloved reader, have you been wounded in the past or recently? Vengeance belongs to God! He will recompense in His way and time.
Leave everything in the hand of God. He knows what to do. Be at peace with your God and yourself.

Do not engage in self-revenge because it will be out of proportions.and you will also pay for your misdeeds. Be wise, leave everything in the hand of the Lord to plead your cause.
Do not be angry, do not sin; never display wrath.
Stay blessed and rapturable, the Lord is coming soon.

There Is A Reason For This Season   Leave a comment

Do you know there is A Reason For This Season In Your Home?

This is Christmas seasion when every home rejoices and makes merry. Many things take place within and outside the home to show the joy associated with this season. These include, eating, drinking, dancing, exchange of gifts and so on.

This is good because in the presence of the Lord is fullness of joy. This is the portion of every home built on Christ, the Rock of ages.

Is yours one of them?

Beloved, do you know that you must not celebrate Christ’s birth in vain? There is a reason for this season which you must not forget or overlook.

Do you ask, “what can this reason be?”

This is “Reconciliation!”. Jesus came into this world to reconcile mankind, including you and me as well as our homes, with his Maker and the Architect of homes. Your celebration will be double if you and every member of your household have already been reconciled to God. Not only this, you will have unceasing joy until you return to Him.

Therefore, be reconciled! The birth of Christ changed the history of the world, He can change your story too and what needs to be altered in your home.

Only welcome Him into your life and home as your Lord and Savior. Do away with all old bad habits and forsake all of them.

Henceforth, live and lead every menber of your household according to the Holy Scriptures.

Let me remind or inform you that years before His birth, many men of God predicted His coming birth which we now celebrate.

Do you know or remember that He also promised coming to take ALL those who believe and faithfully follow Him?

Are you prepared with members of your household to go with Him if He comes today?

I wish you Merry Christmas and Happy New Year in advance.
Stay blessed and rapturable.

FRIENDSHIP DEFINED   Leave a comment

Do you know the relationship between your two eyes?
They blink together, cry together, see things together and sleep together, even though they never see each other.
FRIENDSHIP should just be like that! Life is like hell without FRIENDS. This is best available in Jesus Christ, do you know Him?
May you not choose enemies as your ‘friends’. Have a nice new year.

Be Careful In Your Home In These Last Seconds.   Leave a comment

Please, watch what you do to every member of your households in this last seconds.

Why? You must read this:

Do you know that there are many things that happen here on earth that if you are glued to a transistor radio or television set 24/7 you will never know?

That is on earth!

How many things can you say happen in heaven in the past five minutes? You may not know any. That is fine!

The question now is “Will you believe any true news report that is brought to you by those who witness it from another part of the world?” Do you believe that there are also true report from heaven? Yes, there are. You must believe and act right. Be patient and read this from a man of God:

A Pastor was traveling; he saw an old man whom he gave a free ride. While they were going, the old man said, “My son, do you know what happened in heaven last night?”

The Pastor was terrified and hurriedly parked and asked,
“Sir, are you sleeping? How did you get the information from heaven?”

The old man said,
“Last night in heaven, God became very angry with man and asked the angel to blow/ sound the trumpet. The Angels picked the trumpets and as they were about to do so, Jesus fell down and began to plead in tears. Blood then came out of His hands and body, fresh. He told God that hid death should not be in vain.”

The old man continued,
“God couldn’t stand the pains of the saints and the wickedness of the evil ones. So God said, ‘I GIVE MANKIND THEIR LAST CHANCE.’
Jesus then turned to the Angels and told them to move down in their numerous numbers to tell the the whole world that ‘THE END IS NEAR, JESUS IS COMING VERY SOON.’ ”

The Pastor, sweating and crying asked,
“Sir, how did you know this?”

The old man replied,
“I am one of Angels sent to Nigeria. Please, use every medium of communication to send this message. No time ti waste, please.”

And the old man disappeared.

Brethren, this is a true story. Jesus Christ is coming soon. Please REPENT of ALL your wrongdoing.

Love’s Look-alikes (Part II).   Leave a comment

In the first part of this post, I discussed with my readers the first Love’s Look-alike which is also a four letter word ‘LUST’.
In this second part, I want to call your attention to the second ‘Love’s Look-alike’ which is called ‘evil desires’ or ‘evil concupiscence’. This also looks like love in operation but the motive or driving force behind it is ‘evil’, another four-letter word.
Those who have evil desire(s) seek only to do harm to others in the name of ‘LOVE’. They can go to any length to achieve their aims. They pretend to be ‘in love’.
They also hide their evil motive behind ‘I love you’, ‘My love’, ‘My dearest one, ‘My one and only’, and so on. It is only those who can discern or carefully watch their, ‘the lovers’, motive and are guided by their Maker that will not fall into their trap.
They are roaring lions (lionesses) going about whom to swallow. They expose their nudity to attract their prey(s). They dangle their ‘apples of destruction’, and other such likes, before the careless or carefree ‘would-be victims’. All that they want is to swallow up.
What do they want to swallow? They want to swallow your
a) money or wealth;
b) private parts, manhood or womanhood;
c) health, by sowing the seed of diseases into your body to nurse for the rest of your life. By going about from man to man or woman to woman, sometimes, they have acquired enough diseases to spread to others;
d) spirit. They want to devor you spiritually to ensure that you are of no value to yourself, your generation and God. They want to ruin your relationship with God;
e) life. They want to sniff life out of you to give you death in two ways:
1. They want you to die physically and be no more. That is, that you may depart from this planet earth forever.
2. They want you to die the second death, so that you may end up in eternal damnation. That is, you may end in torment in hell fire after your departure from here. They don’t want you to have rest after your life here.
These roaring lions and lionnesses are in two groups:
One, those who are ignorant of the consequences of what they are doing. I can say that they are doing so ‘unknowingly’.
The Savior of the world prayed for such people thus, ‘Father forgive them for they don’t know what they are doing’.
What such people need is a genuine repentance that will lead to real forgiveness. This is honestly searching their hearts sincerely and regret all evils they have done, to themselves, other fellows and before their Maker.
They need to return to God, who own them. They must believe in the only begotten Son of God who had died for their evil acts to redeem them from their wrong doings forever.
They must join the assembly of others who have done the same. That is, they had repented of their past misdeeds and gave their lives to Jesus Christ, who are now saints.
They all need a copy each of the Living Manual, The Holy Bible. In it, each must meditate (read and deeply think about) day and night with the intention of doing according to what they read. It is then they will see light to walk in for the rest of their lives.
Not only this, they will get the real love the craved. Sex is just a ‘minor’ part of the benefits that ‘Love’ offers.
My dear reader, I am not talking of religion, please! There are so many religious people who are among these ‘lions and lionnesses’ going about to destroy. I am telling you about a new life in your Creator thsough Jesus Christ.
Two, those who are ‘agents of destruction’. This group were sent by their master from the spirit realm to do this. They are always ‘on duty’ carrying out their job as specified for them. They know what they are doing and why they are doing it.
As well, they are happy on the job. They ‘hide’ under the terms reserved for real lovers to carry out their evil acts.
As I bring this piece into a conclusion, I pray that the light of God’s truth begins to work in your heart and may Jesus Christ reveal Himself to you in a way no man can.

Do You Have The Same Fear?   Leave a comment

The story of Cain and Abel is not new to Christians, young or old. There are so many lessons to learn from this story.

Now, let us consider one of such lessons.

Any time you have a surge of anger, you should not fail to ask yourself
“What will I expect another person to do to me if I were in the position of the target of my anger?”

Or “If I were the doer of the misdeeds that make me angry, how will I love to be treated?”

Do you know what? Cain was wrongly angry and he killed a righteous man, Abel.

When God asked him of where Abel was, his reply was that he was not his brother’s keeper. A duty he ought to perform.

Thaks to God Who gave us the Holy Bible to know what the Lord expects from His children.

Do you know what? Cain feared being killed! He lamented, when God delivered His judgment on him, thus,
“My punishment is greater than I can bear!
Surely You have driven me out this day from the face of the ground; I shall be hidden from Your face;
I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond on the earth, and it will happen that anyone who finds me will kill me.” Genesis 4:13-14

Of all his punishments, being killed was all that Cain feared most.

Should he fear being killed?

He has killed! He knew the painfull experience of a victim of murder. He saw that of Abel which he perpetrated.

Therefore, before you take any srep, especially negative one, ask yourself
“Will I love to experience what I want others to pass thorough with my action?”

The Holy Bible says,
“Do to others as you would like others to do to you. ”

Do you follow this exhortation? Vengeance belongs to God!
The Lord is coming soon.
