Great Miracle!   Leave a comment

Wonderful God

A Muslim man in Egypt killed his wife because she was reading the Bible and then buried her with their infant baby and an 8 year old daughter.

حيث ان الفتيات دفنوا و هم أحياء ! و قام بتبليغ الشرطة بالحادثة متهما العم بجريمته . و بعد 15 يوما يموت أحد أفراد العائلة . و عندما أرادوا دفنه , وجدوا تحت الرمل الفتاتان الصغيرتان على قيد الحياة .

The girls were buried alive! then He reported to the police that an uncle killed the kids. 15 days later, another family member died. When they went to bury him, they found the 2 little girls under the sand – ALIVE!
هذه الحادثة أغضبت الناس و حكم على الرجل بالإعدام

The country is outraged over the incident, and the man will be executed.
وقد سؤلت الفتات الكبرى عن كيفيت بقائها على قيد الحياة , فقالت : ‘ كان يجيء إلينا كل يوم رجل , كان هذا الرجل يلبس ثياب مشعّة و كان له جروح نازفة في يديه , كان يأتي و يطعمنا . و قد أيقظ أمي و بتالي فقد أستطاعت أن ترضع أختي . ‘
قالت الفتات هذا الكلام في مقابلة على التلفزيون المصرية الوطنية , و أفادة امراة مسلمة عبرأخبار مؤكدة. قالت فيها على التلفزيون الشعبي : ‘ كان هذا بلا شك السيد المسيح , لأن لا أحد غيره يستطيع فعل مثل هكذا أشياء! ‘

The older girl was asked how she had survived and she says ‘A man wearing shiny clothes, with bleeding wounds in his hands, came every day to feed us. He woke up my mom so she could nurse my sister,’ she said.

She was interviewed on Egyptian National TV, by availed Muslim woman news anchor. She said on public TV, ‘This was none other than JESUS, because nobody else does things like this!’

المسلمون يؤمنون بأن السيد المسيح يستطيع فعل هذا , ولكن الجراح تشير إلى أن السيد المسح حقا قد صلب , وأيضا من الواضح أنه على قيد الحياة ! , وأيضا من الواضح أن الطفلة لا تستطيع أن تخترع قصة مثل تلك , و أساس فإن من المستحيل بقاء الطفلتان على قيد الحياة بدون معجزة حقيقية ,

Muslims believe Isa (JESUS) would do this, but the wounds mean He really was crucified, and it’s clear also that He is alive! But, it’s also clear that the child could not make up a story like this, and there is no way these children could have survived without a true miracle. Muslim leaders are going to have a hard time to figure out what to do with this, and the popularity of the Passion movie doesn’t help! With Egypt at the centre of the media and education in the Middle East , you can be sure this story will spread.

السيد المس يح ما زال يقلب العالم رأسا على عقب! رجاء دع هذه القصة تنتشر بين الناس. يقول الله : ‘أنا سأبارك الشخص الذي يضع ثقته فيّ.’ أرميا 17.

Christ is still turning the world upside down! Please let this story be shared. The Lord says, ‘I will bless the person who puts his trust in me.’ Jeremiah 17..
رجاء أرسل هذه الرسالة إلى كل قائمتك والله سيكافئك بوفرة! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

Please forward these to all on your list and GOD will reward you abundantly!!!!!!!!!!!
Please finish reading before you do anything else right now.
Read this to the end. My name is God. I know you will give your time for me. I love you and always bless you. I am always with you. I need you to spend 30 minutes of your time with me today. Don’t pray. Just praise. Today I want this message across the world before midnight. Will you help? Please do not cut it and I’ll help you with something that you are in need of. A blessing is coming your way. Please drop everything & pass it on. Tomorrow will be the Best Day of your Life. Send this to  friends Trust God.

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.

How To Please Your Wife At All Costs   Leave a comment

“But I want you to be without care.
He who is unmarried cares for the things of the Lord- how he may please the Lord.
But he who is married cares about the things of the world- how he may please his wife.” 1 Corinthians 7:32-33.

A common desire of every female, irrespective of her age, is to have a “caring husband”. This is good and worthy of being desired. Any responsible married man must be caring. Any man who is not ready to do this is not prepared to be married.

The Lord made it a law of relationship to His people, Isreal of old, in Exodus 20:10,
“…he shall not diminish her food, her clothing, and her marrriage rights.” New King James Version.

Every matured man (read my article “Am I matured for marrriage?”) must be ready to care for his wife and children in obedience to the Lord.

To be caring is a direct product of love that a man has for his wife. It is true that hardly will one cares for what one does not love. What you do not love, you will not value and will not enjoy your care.

It is important to note that love between couples emanate ONLY from the love they have for the Lord, their Lord. This is LOVE INDEED. Any type that has its offshoot from another source is either lust or evil desire. This will not last for long and its end is disaster.

Now, does pleasing your wife entail doing so AT ALL COST?

No gainsaying the fact that Father Abraham was a lover of his wife, Mother Sarah. The woman was barren for a long period of time. It was sure that the man was not happy at this. He wanted to please his wife but to give a child is beyond his power.

One day, his wife came up with a “good idea” that she hoped would bring some form of happiness into her heart. She then demanded from her husband,
“See now, the Lord has restrained me from bearing children.
Please, go in to my maid; perhaps I shall obtain children by her.” Genesis 16:2 .

Father Abraham, as a caring husband who wanted to please his wife welcomed the “good idea”; so, “…he went in to Hagar, and she conceived…” verse 4.

Within the household, this singular action bred animosity; it also exhibited the imperfect heart of Father Abraham towards his friend, God because the “good idea” was not God’s idea.

Immediately after the going in and conception, the Almighty God complained to him,
“I am Almighty God, walk before Me and be blameless.” Genesis 17:1. New King James Version.

God had purposed to multiply the couple in HIS OWN WAY and TIME. He said to Abraham,
“As for Sarai your wife, you shall not call her name Sarai, but Sarah shall be her name.
And I will bless her and also give you a son by her; then I will bless her, she shall be a mother of nations;
kings of people shall be from her.” Genesis 17:15-16.

At the end of the day, God’s plan came to pass fully.

Do you know that Abraham’s attempt to please his wife created a lasting problem until today? The product (Ishmael) of Abraham and Hagar, the Egyptian maid had this destiny:
“He shall be a wild man,
his hand shall be against every man,
And every man’s hand against him.
And he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren” Genesis 16:12.

Until now, there are hot spots and restless areas in the world today and certain groups are causing troubles in nations just because sometime ago, a man wanted to please his wife.

It is right and needful to desire and determine to please your wife but do not forget that you must consider it very well if what your wife wants from you will surely, not perhaps, bring her desired joy. Will it also ensure your rightful place before the Almighty God is not shaking?

Finally, will it not bring others into trouble now or in future?
Therefore, consider very well whether or not you must please your wife at all costs.
Stay blessed and rapturable; the Lord is coming soon.

Am I Matured To Be Married?   Leave a comment

In part two of this article, I have discussed two of the six areas you must be matured before you can contemplate marriage. These are Physical and Spiritual maturity.

Now, let me continue with the next ones.

THREE.
Emotional Maturity.
As of the time of writing this piece, I heard a news report on a radio station that a three-month old marriage failed. The reason given was that the husband used to beat his wife mercilessly.

Huuuuuh! Do you say it is a crude and an uncivilized way of life? Yes! I agree with you.

A little analysis will surely reveal that both were not matured emotionally. To save lives, a court of law allowed them to part ways and costs were awarded.

Fine!

However, was that marrriage a success? No! Do you know that something that was wrongly handled started it all?

Let me state here that the marrriage lived long. A three-month old one dissolved? Read this also:

A wedding ceremony took place in Nigeria more than a decade ago which gulped millions of dollars which involved a senior army officer who led a young lady to the altar.

Great and influential people graced the wedding ceremony with expensive gifts given. It is sad that the marrriage lasted only twenty-seven (27) days.

What were the reasons given by the couple in the court of law?
The wife who initiated divorce accused the husband of “unconventional sexual demands”.

The man also accused her of “being a gold digger” who was only interested in his money.

These are weak reasons that brought a potential successful marrriage to a halt abruptly. An emotional maturity could have helped them; it can help those going in their way also.

To be emotionally matured also begins and ends with God. Every man and woman must follow the right path like the nation of Judah.

How?

“And all Judah rejoiced at the oath, for they had sworn with all their heart and sought Him with all their soul; and He was found by them, and the Lord gave them rest all round.” 2 Chronicles 15:15; New King James Version.

Do you want rest all round? If your answer is “yes!”, then you must walk in the right way to receive it.
Your soul or place of desire must be the Lords. Mark 12:30 requires you to
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart (spirit)”, with all your soul (emotions), with all your mind (mental) and with all your strength(physical)”. New King James Version. Words in brackets were added.

If you can do this, your emotions will be under the strict control of the spirit of God. You will not do anything on impulses. You will not be rash.

Not only this, you deserve spiritual food which is available in the Holy Bible. You must feast on it regularly to know what is good for your life and to flee from those poisonous materials dangerous to it.

It is only then that you can be “deaf” as a man and “blind” as a woman.

What does this mean?

A “deaf” man does not hear what a woman says to provoke him. It is only when you are blind as a woman that you will not see the faults or wrong acts of your man or man-to-be that can irritate you.
With the help of the Spirit of God, you should be able to control your emotions.

Your emotional maturity will be hastened if you are very close to the Word of God. It will reveal to you how to deal with every negative emotions.

For example, the Scriptures declares,
“Anger rests in the bosom of fools.” Ecclesiastes 7:9.
Then, do you want to be a fool? God forbid! It is worthy of note that anger is an emotion that easily destroys things.

Let me give you an example here:

An emotionally matured woman was called on phone by her husband to meet him in his office so they could go home together in his car.

The woman demanded that he comes to her office to give her the ride because it was about to rain . The man refused because it was “easier” for her to come to his office and go home. The man’s office was on the way to their house.

After the man could no longer wait, he went home alone.

It rained heavily in such a way that the woman could not escape it.

Before she arrived home, her husband was well prepared for accusations from her and defense was solid.

He was grossly disappointed!

On arrival, the wife presented him with two hot fresh ears of corn, her husband’s delight. He protected them with everything she had to ensure it remained fresh and warm, the rain notwithstanding.

Can you do this?

I think you understand better what being emotionally matured means.

“Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice. And be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.” Ephesians 4:31-32.

Therefore, be emotionally matured, please!
Stay blessed and rapturable.

Seven Dangers Involved In Immaturity Before Marriage.   Leave a comment

What marrriage has become is not what God planned it to be. So many factors have defaced and outrightly changed it. One of such factors is IMMATURITY. In brief , let us discuss SEVEN DANGERS involved in this.

ONE: Sudden death.
There are cases of sudden death resulting from immaturity in marrriage. This cut across races and culture. Husband have shot their wives dead over trivialities that saturate marrriages; wives have piosoned their own husbands because of unsubstantiated suspicions.

The list is endless!

TWO: Divorce. Divorce has become an “easy option” today. This has taken place on any flimsy excuse that have been balooned in the court of law. The facts presented before judges have been enlarged out of proportion; so judges have no choices but to dissolve many marriages.

Whereas, maturity before marrriage would have saved many.

“For the Lord God of Israel says
That He hates divorce…” Malachi 2:16 a-b. New King James Version.

Do you want to involve yourself in what God hate?.

Watch it!

Three: SEPARATION.
This is seen by many people as a “better option” to divorce. For many reasons people prefer separation to divorce.

To cover up, they will appear “as if” they are husband and wife when “love” has ceased to exist. In this case, depending on ages of the children , and other factors, they “share” the children.

Four:- LIVING LIKE A CAT AND A MOUSE.
Late october 2014, I heard a story of a couple who live under one roof but never see each other’s face. They have partitioned the house very well that they cannot see or meet each other.

When their children are on holiday from school, for a month, these children will spend two weeks with the mother in her “apartment” while the other two weeks will be spent with their father.

In another family, they did not talk together. They write on paper anything they wanted to say.

The wife would write, “Your food is ready, take it in the kitchen.”

“I have put money on the dinning table to buy foodstuffs for the month” the husband would write.

Is this good?

Five: – A SAD LIFE.
The initial plan of God to institute marrriage is for both man and woman to live joyfully. Joy has eluded many homes today. There are couples today who live together BUT without JOY. They easily “see” their plight as “my cross”. So, the husband becomes “a cross” to carry for the wife and vice versa.

This ought not to be so.

A man of God on a wedding day narrated his experience with a couple. They were neighbours. The husband went to the man of God when meditating in the word of God one day. He explained that things have gone wrong in his home for years now.

The man of God was surprised because they always go out together wearing the same type of clothes, shoes, and so on. Young men and women used to pray for their kind of home, not knowing what is going on.

The man if God pointed to this but the man replied,
“Our clothes, shoes are always uniform but our lives are not as people see us. Love is lost!”
Immaturity abhors this danger.

Please, bear with me, read the concluding part in the next piece.

Are You Married To A Man Or…?   Leave a comment

To start with, I sincerely apologize for not updating this blog for sometime now. The Spirit was willing but the flesh was weak. Please, remember me in your prayers. There are interesting topics I love to share with you. I have now resumed, the Holy Spirit will help me to meet you here at least once a week.

Let us begin with this:

Are You Married To A Man Or..?

“Sometimes, when you see how caring another woman’s husband is, you may be tempted to poison your own.”

This was a frightening statement from a woman in August 2014. I never expected a statement like this from her.

Why?

She is an attendee in her church programs. She appears as a Christian by all standards.

This woman became ill and her friend’s husband, a medical practitioner took care of her. This man used to call her to know her state of her health regularly. She received one of such calls when she came to me for counselling. After the call, she made that statement.

At that point, I remembered the conversations between Jesus Christ and a Samarian woman near Jacob’s well in John Chapter four.

Jesus said, “Go, call your husband and come here.”
She answered,”I have no husband.”

“You have well said, ‘I have no husband’ for you have had five husbands, and the one whom you now have is not your husband; in that you spoke truly.” John 4:16-18.

Now can the woman who said “one may be tempted to poison one’s husband” be said to be married to the man for whom she has five children?

Now let me mention seven reasons (among others) a woman may settle for a man to live with and not a husband.

One.
Death of a woman’s loved husband may rob her of her future joy from a new home. She may permanently close the door of her heart to avoid another wound.

The two daughters of Lot agreed that “There is no man on earth”.
This is a common mistake whereas God has alternatives.

Two.
Divorce is another factor that can make a woman to live with a man who is not her husband. A disappointed woman may decide wrongly not to love any man again “to be on the safe side”. Yet she may live with a man for the sake of living together only.

Three.
Past waywardness for which a woman now pays the penalty. What do I mean? Many women have lost those who really loved them elope with a man in money or position.
Many are later abandoned to care for themselves. At this point, they go for “the next available” man and settle with same.

Four.
Childlessness that leads to a change of husband. When a woman is too anxious to have children, she may move from one man to another.
At the end of the day, she may live the rest of her life with a man who is not her husband.

Five.
In certain cultures and religions, forced marrriage takes place. A father or mother may give his/her daughter to a man as wife against her will.

No matter what she is given materially, she will not be satisfied. As an “obedient” child, she may live with the man whereas she married him against her will.

Another thing is she may leave the man to live with another next available man to protest her forced marrriage.

Six.
Covetousness is another factor that can lead a woman to live with a man who is not her husband. This happens when a woman cannot tame her needs/wants, especially if she loves money and other material things.
A woman can therefore live with a man for material gains when they are not husband and wife.

Seven.
Marrriage through deceit is another factor that can make a woman to live with a man who is not her husband. If a woman is lured into marrriage, she may opt to stay with the man.

The missing core issue in this matter is LOVE. This is the key factor that establishes a man and a woman as husband and wife.

However, no matter your circumstances, you must not fail to demonstrate God’s love to your fellow man. Not only this, you have no right to claim another man’s life. It is a sin against God and humanity.
Turn to your God… Pray to Him. Tell Him to heal you of all wounds and to give you His better alternative. You should be ready to cooperate and accept His new provisions.
Stay blessed and rapturable because the Lord is coming soon.

My Daddy?   Leave a comment

My Daddy
On October 2, 2013, I attended a prayer meeting with my sister. When it was over, she asked me what the relationship between a man and a woman I know very well was. My reply was ” They are husband and wife.”

She shook her head saying, “When the man left the meeting briefly, maybe without informing her, she was asking everyone around her, ‘Where’s my daddy? Where has my daddy gone to?’ ”

“What’s strange in that?” I inquired.

She replied, “I know about a woman calling her husband ‘Daddy’ but NOT ‘My daddy’ ”

Beloved reader, do you recognise the differences between “Daddy”, “Our Daddy” and “My Daddy”? A closer look will reveal that “My Daddy” shows more intimacy than others.

Let me say that it is a mark of respect for her husband. It is a sign of obedience to the Word of God. Apostle Paul instructed the Ephesian church, and today’s church too, that

“Nevertheless let each one of you in particular so love his wife as himself, AND LET THE WIFE SEE THAT SHE RESPECTS HER HUSBAND.” (capitals added) Ephesians 5:33.

Respect guarantees love. I don’t know how much you’ll love any fellow who disrespects you. God, the creator of all things sent a message to Eli, the Priest in Israel of old,

“Far be it from Me; for those who honor Me I will honor, and those who despise Me shall be lightly esteemed.” (1Samuel 3:30).

Do all within your means to respect your husband.

“My Daddy” is less than calling your husband “My lord”. Still, it is on record in the Scriptures that Sarah called her husband, Abraham, “My lord”.(1 Peter 3:6)

Therefore, go and respect your husband. It is sure you will win more of his LOVE.
