How I Spent My February 14, 2015.   Leave a comment

On Febuary 9, 2015, I began a prayer expedition or exploration that took me to many places as designed and commanded by God. On the sixth day which concidentally was a day set aside as ” Lovers’ Day” or “Valentine’s Day” named after saint Valentine. The day was a memorable one.

About 12:00 am on February 14, I was to hold a vigil with a family of seven persons : Father, mother and their five children. I invited the couple to have a few minute discussion with them. However, this went on for not less than one-and-a-half hours.

This family was not only living in abject poverty but also in serious bitterness of heart towards each other.

The husband confessed to hating prayers and he never hesitated to beat his wife anytime she persisted on inviting him to pray with her.

Not only this, the man identified “lack of money” as their main cause of bitterness towards each other.

The wife politely hesitated and declared that love and understanding are the core missing ingredients in their marital meal. She also pointed out that if there is money and those materials are absent, there will be no joy and sweetness.

Then the work began.

The Holy Spirit took over, we, without previous planning, discussed everything based on I Corinthians chapter thirteen. Each verse was well analysed and they reasoned together with me on what the Holy Spirit shared with us.

Finally, we prayed together and I separated them to pray on there own as a family which lasted a few minutes to four o’clock on the a.m.side. Now, he husband has developed interest in praying with the wife.

Glory be to God!

Do you know what? That was the first time I have met with them.
This happened on a Lovers’ day.

By God’s special grace , I , by the help of the Holy Spirit , spent quality time running into hours reading and meditating on my Lover’s love letters, The Holy Bible , which really opened my eyes to many things in those letters.

After this I decided to share my love with others with the following words:
“The steadfast love of the Lord will never cease in your life and His mercy will never come to an end. Both will become new each day. Happy Valentine’s day!”

Stay blessed and rapturable because the Lord is coming soon.

Do Not Be A Handsome Hell.   Leave a comment

Hell, by all definitions and descriptions, is not a good thing to desire or a place to be. Nothing should attract you, or anyone who loves himself, to it. You must avoid it.

How then come A Handsome Hell?

A horrible experience of hell can be experienced on earth, when it is wrapped in a good looking cover.
The outward appearance may looks appealling but underneath is hard life and harrowing experience.

A man may look handsome and wealthy but both attributes can turn out to become Hell Wrappers. Having a relationship with him can be hellish, full of regrets.

Now , let us briefly examine two bad qualities that can turn a handsome and wealthy man into a handsome Hell.
One, a man of great wrath, no matter his handsomeness or wealth, has hell within him and can harm others.
Two, a man no one can talk to. The Scriptures says,
“Do not be wise in your own eyes”,
A wise man sometimes changes his decisions and having many wise counsellors is a blessing to anyone who has them. But not so with anyone nobody can talk to, he will not give room for counsel. His decisions, right or wrong is always final. No second thought!
In both cases, such a man will destroy himself suddenly. Before then , the tendency is there that he will not have access to the joy of life and pleasures in relationships. Not only so, others around him will in turn suffer same fate.

It is not only him who will be destroyed but those around him together. His negative decisions and not being correctable can bring evil on him and his household.

It suffices to say that a man of great wrath and one who cannot be spoken to should not have friends, companions, let alone a wife.

Why?

The Holy Bible warns that someone close to an angry man may learn his way and get a snare for himself.

Who wants that?

Abigail will never forget her experience for getting married to her husband, Nabal . He was described thus,
“And there was a man in Ma’on,whose business was in Carmel. The man was
very rich…
Now the name of the man was Nabal…
and he is so ill-natured that one cannot speak to him,” I Sam 25:2-3, 17 Revised Standard Version .

It was Abigail’s wisdom and understanding that prevented all evils determined against Nabal and his household by David.

What happened later?

“And about ten days later the Lord smote
Nabal; and he died. ” I Sam 25:38. RSV

Nabal was a man who was “good” in answering good people roughly ( I Sam 25:14-15), yet, he was rich. His handsomeness, wealth and riches could not prevent ( or help him) from being destroyed suddenly.

Are you also A Handsome Hell? If you must not live a lonely life, or be destroyed suddenly,
today,
* You must realise and acknowledge your helplessness
* Regret your past and present status
* Determine to have a new way of life
* Invite Jesus Christ, to take over your heart , soul and mind and rule it forever.
* Obtain a copy of the Holy Bible that you may read it and obey its instructions
* Join an assembly of brethren where they share the scriptures.

Cease to be a Handsome Hell!
Stay blessed and rapturable, the Lord is coming soon.

Do Not Be A Beautiful Trouble.   Leave a comment

A young lady many years ago, after receiving her examination result sheet in a subject I cannot remember now where she scored a poor mark, said, “If I am not a brilliant girl, am very beautiful; I will find a man who will marry me.”

Why did she resigned to live only on her beauty? That is now part of history.

Do you know that there are so many ladies who resigned to living only on their beauty? They think that the only “asset” that they have is their “good look”. They rely ONLY on their outward appearance. By so doing, many have turned themselves into “Miss Available” to any man. They parade their beauty everywhere; many times they use it as a snare to catch men whom they want to destroy.

Beloved reader, I am not an enemy of good or beautiful things but everything does not end in beauty. I have obseved that those who have worn “Beauty Contests” are not only beautiful outwardly but are also intelligent.

They have beautiful “spirit too”.

They have something good to pursue. They have goals as well. Not that they go about to display only their beauty.

It is sad that many who seem to be beautiful are indeed Troubles. The Holy Bible discloses in Proverbs 9:13,
“A foolish woman is clamorous: she is simple, and knoweth nothing.”

Is this verse relevant to your life? This should not be your portion. A beautiful but foolish woman is a Trouble to herself, home and the society . What does a fool has to offer? The sad part is that she clamor for many things good, bad or ugly. Yet, she has no wisdom to pursue any reasonable goal.

Such Beautiful Trouble is simple and does not know anything. To her, anything goes! She has no knowledge and those without knowledge stand the chance of being destroyed at any time.

Do not be a Beautiful Trouble!

Do you know that life does not end only in beauty? The Holy Bible has this to say about a certain type of woman, no matter their degree of beauty,
“It is better to dwell in a corner of the housetop,
than with a brawling woman in a wide house.” Prroverbs 21:19, King James Version.

If a corner of the housetop is better than a wide house because of a woman, is it wrong to call such woman A Beautiful Trouble?

What made a coner of housetop a better place is that trouble, a brawling woman, no matter how beautiful she is.

The Scriptures add,
“…the contentions of a wfe are a continual dropping.” Proverbs 19:13b, King James Version.

Do you know that this is a type of woman who is a Beautiful Trouble?

The Holy Bible also describes another thus,
“It is better to dwell in the wilderness, than with a contentious and angry woman.” Proverbs 21:19,

No matter the degree of beauty of a “contentious and angry woman”, she is a Trouble. She will always cause trouble.
During the cause of writing this piece, I remember a single mother of five who once bragged, “I cannot steal. My husband knows that I am good at igniting the fire of discord.” Are you like her? Don’t be a Beautiful Trouble!
The scriptures declares,
“Every wise woman buildeth her house:
but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands” Pro 14:1 KJV .
Do you want to build or pluck down your house?
Build it, please, wth wisdom . It is foolish to be a clamorous women, a brawling or contentious and angry woman, no matter your the beauty.
Add wisdom to your physical outlook. Don’t allow your appearance to intoxicate you. Don’t rely on it alone , pursue knowledge , gain understanding and apply wisdom . Then will you not be a Beautiful Trouble .
Be informed that Sarah was a beautiful woman with wisdom , you can also be like her to build your house.

How To Please Your Husband At All Costs   Leave a comment

“There is a difference between a wife and a virgin.
The unmarried woman cares about the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit.
But she who is married cares about the things of the world- how she may please her husband” 1 Corinthians 7:34.

The truth about every relationship is that you must sow what you want to reap. Every woman with a sound mind will appreciate a caring husband. Therefore, if you, as a woman, want to be cared for by your man, please, you must be caring too.
If your belief is that it is YOU only who must be cared for, your unknown name until now is “Love Exploiter”.

This is recorded about a woman like you,
“Who can find a virtuous wife?
For her worth is far above rubbies,
The heart of her husband safely trusts her;
So he will have no lack of gain.
She does him good and not evil
All the days of her life.” Proverbs 31:10-12. Nkjv.

That is a woman who pleased her husband in her own time.

One thing to note about the husband of this woman is that it is not on record that he had any inordinate ambitions or that he was covetous. So he could be pleased without any wrongdoing.

This was the undoing of a queen and a king in ancient Israel. Their names were king Ahab and queen Jezebel.

Jezebel really loved her husband and would not hesitate to do anything to please him. However, this king over God’s people was not satisfied with what he had. He was after the property of another man, Naboth, so he approached him,
“Give me your vineyard, that I may have it for a vegetable garden, because it is near, next to my house; for it I will give you a vineyard better than it. Or if it seems good to you, I will give you its worth in money.” 1 Kings 21:2.

Naboth, however, refused to grant that request to preserve his “father’s inheritance”.

King Ahab went home disappointed; he could not think of the next line of action .

When Qeen Jezebel heard, because she hated to see her man wearing a sad countenance, so she encouraged him,
“You exercise authority over Israel! Arise, eat food, and let your heart be cheerful, I will give you the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite.” 1 Kings 21:7.

As an extremist who wanted to please her husband, she went to arrange how Naboth would be eliminated using her authority as a queen. The murder arrangement was effectively carried out because he was killed by the queen’s agents.

Then the King took over the vineyard of the dead man.

What was the final judgment over the couple? Prophet Elijah revealed the heart of God thus,
“Have you murdered and taken possession?
Thus says the Lord: ‘ In the place where dogs licked the blood of Naboth, dogs shall lick your blood even yours.
The dogs shall eat Jezebel by the wall of Jezreel.’ ” 1 Kings 21:19, 23. Nkjv.

That was the end of those couple. One could not help the other on the day of reckoning.

As much as you must be loving, caring and please your man, do not forget that you are responsible to a higher authority. There are so many ways to please your man without killing, wounding, stealing or doing any wrong; exploit them.

Do not heap up guilt and condemnation! You will give account of all your thoughts, words and deeds to your Maker, who alone can kill and make alive. Will you not fear Him? Care for your man in a way that you will not sin against God.

Stay blessed and rapturable ; the Lord is coming soon.
Note.
Scriptures quoted are from New King James Version of the Holy Bible.
