Used Versus Loved   Leave a comment

While a man was polishing his new car, his 6 yr old son picked up a stone and scratched lines on the side of the car.
In anger, the man took the child’s hand and hit it many times;❤

not realising he was using a wrench.❤

At the hospital, the child lost all his fingers due to multiple fractures.❤

When the child saw his father…❤

with painful eyes he asked, ‘Dad when will my fingers grow back?’❤

The man was so hurt and speechless;❤

he went back to his car and kicked it a lot of times.❤

Devastated by his own actions…..❤

sitting in front of that car he looked at the scratches;❤

The child had written ‘LOVE YOU DAD’.❤❤

The next day that man committed suicide. . .❤

Anger and Love have no limits;❤

Choose the latter to have a beautiful, lovely life….❤❤.

Things are to be used and people are to be loved.❤
But the problem in today’s world is that,❤

People are used and things are loved.❤

In this year, let’s be careful to keep this thought in mind:❤

Things are to be used,but People are to be loved.❤

Watch your thoughts; they become words.❤

Watch your words; they become actions.❤

Watch your actions; they become habits.❤

Watch your habits they become character;❤

Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.❤

God bless you.❤

Do u know the relationship between your two eyes?❤

They blink together, move together, cry together, see things together & sleep together.❤

Even though they never see each other.❤

Friendship should be just like that!

Life is vanity without FRIENDS.

Hindrances To Your Getting Employment 2   Leave a comment

Rates of unemployment is growing at an alarming one. In many nations, it has grown out of control. This evil has given birth to other evil acts or crimes in various forms. Most of the time, governments are held responsible and many of them are guilty of indeed negligent.

In many cases, government may cannot employ every citizen of her country but every government has the task of creating an enabling environment conducive enough to generate and sustain employment opportunities.

On the other hand, a lot also fall on the unemployed person. That is why I want to mention some hindrances to certain people’s employment opportunity.

Before I do this, let me give you this “emotional injection” to provoke you into taking an immediate, serious and Godly steps towards ending your unemployment problem. Do you eat daily? Do you eat at all even if not daily? If you do, it is a mistake because
“If anyone will not work, neither shall he eat.” 2 Thessalonians 3:10b. NKJV.

Going by what Apostle Paul wrote in the above verse, do not eat until you work! Now, let us consider other remaining hindrances one by one.
In part one, we have discussed
*arrogance;
*over valuation of self;
*lack of love;and
*lack of service.

Love of money.
If you love money, it is possible you may not secure a gainful job. Examine your heart please. Do you want a place to work to attract money or you want a place where you want to “carry” currency away to your home?
You can interpret “carry” in various forms. I don’t think you can ever find a corporation that will allow you to drain her treasury. The whole world is against corruption but approves honesty and faithfulness.

Then register this in your heart,
“For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pieced themselves through with many arrows.” 1Timothy 6:10. NKJV.

Fear of smallness.
You may fear to start small . I have come across unemployed people who can easily set up their own business to generate some income. Although they agree they can set up one but complain of not having access to million dollars to start. Huu! Many of them are potential “successful business tycoons” who refuse to start small.
Are you one of them? Do not fear to start small to grow to greatness. Leave unemployment market today.

I asked a graduate who studied Animal Production how much he needs to set up a business. His answer was “I will need $1m.” He has nowhere to raise this. He agreed to start with a small capital of $100k. I am sure his journey to greatness has started.

Comparison.
It is a serious hinderance to compare yourself with another person. There is no reason to engage in unnecessary comparison of yourself witth friends, brothers, school mates and others. You have your life to live; they have theirs to live.

Therefore, live your live as your Creator designed it. If you stop comparing your life with others, you may consider taking up the next employment opportunity: this may be a paid job or self employment. Cease it!

Now, let me ask you, how is your relationship with your Maker? You need Him in your life. This will afford you the opportunity to ask Him, “Lord, what do you want me to do?” He is ready to lead you to take the next right steps to end your unemployment problem. He can eliminate every hindrances to your gainful employment.
Stay blessed and rapturable because the Lord is coming soon.

Rates of unemployment is growing at a very alarming one. In many nations, it has grown out of control. This evil has given birth to other evil acts or crimes in various forms. Most of the time, governments are held responsible; and many of them are guilty of negligence indeed.

In many cases, government may not be able to employ every citizen of her country but every government has the task of creating an enabling environment conducive enough to generate employment opportunities.

On the other hand, a lot also fall on the unemployed person. That is why I want to mention some hindrances to certain people’s employment opportunity.

“If anyone will not work, neither shall he eat.” 2 Thessalonians 3:10b. NKJV.

Going by what Apostle Paul wrote in the above verse, do not eat until you work! Now, let us consider those hindrances one by one.

Arrogance.
This comes up in various forms. Some people are unemployed because they are too big to take instructions from any boss. If such person secures a job today, within a few months, he is back in the labor market again.

Are you like this?

Certain people think they must be employed in a particular sector of the economy by all means. There are many reasons that sector may not be able to accommodate them now but they want to wait UNTIL there are vacancies. They want to remain unemployed, so far the sector is not ready to absorb them now.

Are you a member of this group? If yes, have a rethink!

Over evaluation of self.
I am not supporting “selling” yourself so cheap, but do not “overprice” yourself. Every tree grows from somewhere, eg a seed. You need to start somewhere also . The only job where you can start from the top is that of digging a well and such likes and when you do that, going down follows.

Do you want this? May you not go down forever in Jesus Name. So, do not over value yourself. Do you know that if you prove your worth, something bigger or better can come your way. Are you of great value?
“Let another man praise you, and not your own mouth;
A stranger, and not your own lips.” Psalm 127:2. NKJV.

Let people see your value and say so!

Lack of Love.
This comes up in two ways and you must ask yourself two important questions. One, “Do I love my Maker with everything in me and everything I am?” “Do I love Him sincerely an unconditionally?”
The first step to loving is to love your Maker, God.

The second step is to love your neighbor as much as you love yourself. Your neighbor include those you meet daily who can enjoy God’s kindness through you. Then ask yourself the second question, “Do I love others with the love of the Lord sincerely? Read Mark 12:30-31.

Loving the Lord, your Creator and other people around you is a strong key to open doors of employment opportunity. Let your love comfort others today; one of them may be a channel of blessing to you.

Lack of service.
Do you love to serve others? Service has strong power. If you want to serve others, you cannot be unemployed because there are people who need your service and are waiting for you to arise and act. This can be a free service or one with moderate fees. Your service has the power to shoot you to a level you never envisaged.

In Acts 6:1-6, Stephen, Philip and other five brethren did not know they would become Deacons but when the Gospel spread and the number of brethren increased, they were chosen because others knew them to be honest men who loved to serve them.

Are you ready to serve your generation? Employment opportunity is available.

However, if you are not ready for any service, forget about gainful and lasting employment. Therefore, be ready for meaningful service to get gainful job.

Please, read the remaining points in the second part of this piece.
Stay blessed and rapturable because the Lord is coming soon.

NKJV is New King James Version of the Holy Bible.

Can You Love Your Enemies?   Leave a comment

“Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you.” Luke 6:27 NKJV.

The above verse of the Scriptures is a direct and straight forward command from Jesus Christ. Every lover of the Lord must obey ALL His commands without exception. This command of the Lord may look “hard” to obey by Christians but with the help of the Holy Spirit, it can become easy to obey.

One thing I have observed about every command of Jesus Christ is that each has great benefits. To access these benefits calls for following each command to the last letter.

Now, let us examine about five reasons, among others, Jesus commands us to “Love your enemies”.

REASON ONE.
Peace is sure.
You will be at peace with your God and yourself. Loving your enemies will not allow your relationship with God to be strained. You will not have any hidden root of bitterness in your heart towards anybody. The Lord your God will be pleased with you all the time.

Your heart will also be at peace. You will have no time to brood over what your enemies have done to you and to think about ways of revenge. Your will spend your time on things that are good and pleasing to God.

REASON TWO.
You will not sow evil.
If you love your enemies, you will not sow an evil seed. Hatred is an evil thing. If you hate your enemies, you will not hesitate to do them evil. If you sow an evil seed, it is sure that you will reap the same.

Therefore, Jesus does not want any evil to befall you that is one reason He command you (and all His followers) to love your enemies. The law remains forever,
“Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.
For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the spirit will of the spirit reap everlasting life.” Galatians 6:7-8 NKJV.

To love your enemies is sowing to the Spirit and you will reap everlasting life.

REASON THREE.
Love is an effective weapon of conversion.
Jesus Christ is the best pattern Christians can follow. He is a Doer of what He preaches. He lives by example. No believer can claim to love Christ before conversion or salvation. Romans 5:8 reveals to us,
“But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

It was Christ’s love that converted all Christians; so your love can also change your enemies to become your friends. Jesus informs all believers that,
“You are My friends if you do whatever I command you.” John 15:14 NKJV.
Therefore, you can turn enemies into friends if you love them.

REASON FOUR.
Enemies will be at a risk.
You will put your enemies at a great risk. How? Love is a good thing. To love is to do good. In the same vein, to hate is to do evil. If you do good, you are supposed to reap same. If you do evil, you will reap it.

Now, if you do good to your enemies by loving them and they continued to hate you, they are sowing evil and will reap evil. The book of Proverbs 17:13 reveals,
“Whoever rewards evil for good,
Evil will not depart from his house.” NKJV.
Can you see that to “Love your enemies” is a sure weapon to destroy your enemies?

REASON FIVE.
It an evidence or proof.
Are you a child of the Most High God? If you are truly saved, you must take after your Heavenly Father who adopted you by His love that never fails. You nust do whatever He does . Christ instructs,
“But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you; do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons (daughters) of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.” Matthew 5:44-45.

Do you want to resemble your Father in heaven? Then, love your enemies! This “love your enemies” will aid your being rapturable because you will not have bitterness of heart against anyone. Although you must obey other commands to be worthy to go with the Lord when He comes.

Are you ready for Him? The Lord will come anytime from now. Love your enemies!
Stay blessed and rapturable.
Shalom!

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.

An Evil Act Of Fathers.   Leave a comment

For the purpose of this piece, A FATHER include:
1. A married man who is blessed with a female child.
2. A man, married or single, who, by any means, happened to be the first male a young girl has to be close to.

Everyday, people go to marrriage registry to pledge their love to each other “until death parts us”. This same “pair” of people still go to courts of law to tell Judges “We want you to dissolve our marrriage because we cannot continue as husband and wife.”. This happens soon or late.

What a great contradiction!

This was (and still is) not God’s plan to institute marrriage.

One unassailable but little known truth is that fathers contribution to this unpleasant scenario is great. Fathers are not aware that they directly destroy the future homes of their daughters.

Do you want to know how?

Every woman is expected to be a home builder. A woman does this with her wisdom. Now, there are lots a young girl needs to know about a man. This must begin from her father’s house.

Do you know that first impression lasts long? The first man in a woman’s life, in most cases, is her father. Whatever knowledge she gathers from him will form an initial and lasting impression in her heart. How a young girl perceives her father determines her perception of other men, most especially her husband, in the future.

If “first impression lasts long”, which impression do you give your daughter(s)?

A man whose wife gave birth to a beautiful girl once hissed and left the maternity home in rage when he was so informed. He was not happy and hated the wife for it. What a mess!

Do you think this father will love the little girl as she grew up? The answer nay be “No!”. If the girl fails to experience a father’s love, do you think she will truly trust any man’s love in the future?

It will be easier for such any woman in this category to leave her husband on any flimsy excuse. In the first instance, such go into marriage for other reasons rather than love.

Brutal fathers wound the hearts if their daughters, thus making them potential haters of men, ditto their husbands.

This type of fathers deny their daughters necessary “masculine training” required to weather the storms of their lives, most especially those of their homes. They make them available for “old women fables” that sometimes work against their success in future.

Are you one of the brutal fathers? Are you unkind to your daughter(s)? A you like a lion to her? Can you be approached by her for anything?

Today, you must have a complete change of attitude. You must not indirectly destroy the future joy of a family that your daughter ought to build.

I love an old man’s statement. I met him at an immigration office in 2013. He had many daughters and a lone son. He confidently said, “I trained my daughters like men. There is nothing they cannot do and they can easily adapt to any situation.”.

That is a father fir you!

Therefore, make yourself available to your daughter(s). Speak kindly to her. Cherish her. Do not deny her the joy from a father which you can give. Your position in her life is crucial as the first man she grew up to know in her life. Begin to help build your daughter’s future home today. Let her have confidence in you. Permit her to to have gut to confide in you. Allow her to trust you.

If you do not treat your daughter like a Princess, it may be a spill over from your past. Perhaps, your mother did not treat you like a Prince. The ill-treatment must come to an end. Please do this.

Do you want your heart to be healed of past childhood wounds? Please, visit regularly, if possible, follow my blog, http://www.peacelink.wordpress.com. You will not regret doing so. This is where I share the secrets of a peaceful home.
Be informed or reminded that the Lord Jesus Christ’s coming soon. Stay blessed and rapturable.

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.
