DEEPEST COLD VALLEYS


Cold defeat sits inside his heart like a weakling squirrel on broken branches, after the storm. Tears whipped his pale face as he reminisce his old self. What happened? When did I lost it all, he soliloquies? •

Deafening, melancholic rhythms of chaos within the ears within his ears. Oh, how fragile, even the most strongest among men, is fragile. Like a candle sets on white sandy shores at night, he glows like a lighthouse, guiding mammoth ships, but in a twinkle of an eye the winds slaps him, and he’s no more. He’s gone — to the rabbit holes, where no man knows the language they speak except the man writhing in pain & sorrow

So I said to myself, if life is only meaningful when the Beloved guides thy feet to wherewithal he wants you to be, then it’s worthless for me to go where the Lover has not sent me to be.

Father, Son, Spirit — Pruner of the vineyard Keep me on the path where your grace rules Guide my feet away from the evil that lurks. Oh, the evil that lurks in the darkness around

There is a cup in the hands of God, filled with the wine of love. The taste of it, I do not have the words to express. Whenever I am in His presence I feel lighter, yet intoxicated by the weight of His glory, possessed by mercy; indulging and embracing eternal romance, and deep assurance of love.

Your love is the most sweetest thing my soul has ever bathed itself in. Don’t tell me to jump out of this river, oh man. Freeing, nourishing, and strengthening; the deeper my feet, my soul delve into it’s grandeur —— Ah, nothing feels better than you; Jesus, lover of my soul. 

I could still be sitting on weak branches of self; wounded from within if your love and warmth had not touched the feet of this migrant bird; warming my days in eternal ecstasy.

THE WISDOM OF THE FAKE LEADER


I’ve observed the genuine, honest pastor/leader and the fake Pastor/leader, and I’ve come to the conclusion that the genuine Pastor can learn so much from the fake pastor to improve on her genuineness

The fake pastor (especially the con artist) uses practical laws and principles which works perfectly well, if applied with consistency. It doesn’t matter whose hands these laws operates from. You will probably say; “what has light have to do with darkness? We are not talking about our common faith in God, but the natural laws of this universe. His motive is bad but the the laws are good and holy. In Luke 16 Jesus talks about money… giving us a parable about a man who exhibited an unfaithful character as a steward. 

UNJUST STEWARD – The master commended the unjust steward for his SHREWDNESS. His special and dynamic ability to connect himself with the leanders of his master. He has master brain. The will to act swiftly to avert a situation. He knows he couldn’t work. He was ashamed to dig. So he canceled some of the debts to attain favor with the debtors. He was focused on future. He knows he had sown a seed they will surely pay back in the near future. His skill set was commended, not his mischievous and unfaithful behavior. 

So much is required from all genuine pastors and leaders by God. Much is giving, so much is required. The gossip and the bashing will not make Christ attractive. Developing new mindset is the key to packing well your gospel to the masses caught in a web of darkness.

Luke 16:8 8“The master commended the dishonest manager because he had acted shrewdly. For the people of this world are more shrewd in dealing with their own kind than are the people of the light

SHREWDLY – A shrewd person is savvy, intelligent, wise, and a creative thinker. They know what they have to do at every time. An outside of the box kind of a leader. Sadly, most genuine pastors are limited within a certain space of operation. The skill set to break out of the old mode is lacking. Most genuine pastors are caught in the web of tradition, having no relevance for the culture they live in. All genuine Pastor will surely go to heaven, but if you ignore the universal laws of life, and certain principles of God, your life can be stag in the same place. You can become a liability to the kingdom. 

7 THINGS TO LEARN FROM A FAKE PASTOR 

1. THE LAW OF SELF PROJECTION – Most fake Pastors are endowed with the skill of projecting self ( some form of aura) into the consciousness of the masses. You’ll easily believe them to something they are not. So they give themselves certain names and accolades.

They are not afraid to build huge billboards, and advertise on radio, telling people what they can offer. The genuine pastor has this mindset; “Promotion comes from the Lord” “Except the Lord build the city” “He will build his church and the gates of hell cannot prevail.” They all sound beautiful and religious. But the truth is humans are always looking for someone/something to believe in. Though he’s genuine no one knows what he can offer. He doesn’t have a certain appeal that connects well with his generation. 

The secret is this; people still want to know if you have the answer. So we can agree with Peter; “what I have i give unto you.” There’s absolutely nothing wrong to showcase or parcels what you have, and present it to the world, from the persuasion of Christ. Most believers have no confidence in the genuine Pastor. Though he’s genuine, he doesn’t have what it takes to appeals to the mind and heart of men;  drawing them to the feet of Christ. Remember, genuine pastors can’t hide their light under a bushel, relying only on prayer for the community to be drawn to God is doing. The community has to be reached whatever means possible. 

2. THE LAW OF MONEY – Money is a medium of exchange. To hoard and boast about it is foolishness. Most fake pastors love good things. They have material wealth. But they usually start from the bottom. They have this belief: “As much as I invest in my art, I will attract the masses.” He buys professional, sophisticated gadgets that gives his brand a certain aura, to push himself into the consciousness of the masses, via TV, Radio, live streaming online, and quality sound or the product they are selling out. etc.

One of the things most genuine pastors should  learn from fake pastors is to not be afraid of money, investing richly and wisely in what you’ve been called to do. Talk to the other great and honest pastors within your city or community who are doing well. Ask them how they doing it. Men look on the outward. So people wonder why you keep preaching against fake pastors, but there is nothing about your ministry that’s worth giving their attention to. 

MONEY ATTRACTS– Money will always attract money. Or good things attract their kind. They (fake leaders) have good sound quality in their sanctuary, they literally help the poor and the needy. Walk into their office, and it is like you’re in the Oval Office. These are all done to impress, and  cover up their mischiefs. As true servant of God, I believe you should not got stag into traditions and the archaic, and just be open minded, and go for quality at all times. Quality doesn’t mean expensive.

Sometimes, due to the transparency of the genuine pastor, in regards to church funds, he’s easily sabotaged by religious leaders. On the other hand the fake pastor always surround themselves with sycophants, or operates with scare tactics, so that no one can stop them; digging into church coffers. ( if you learn this you’ll die sooner or later) Educate your leaders on the importance of your call and their place in your mission. They shouldn’t be opposers of anything good.

3. THE LAW OF BOLDNESS – The fake pastor is not afraid to try new things, by telling his followers God has spoken to him. Even if it backfires they always have answers for their followers. Fake pastors are very daring. They test high waters. Fake pastors make what’s not real to look real. 

 As a matter of fact they are not afraid of rumors mongery, and scandals. Fear is the limitation of the genuine pastor. He’s always waiting for God’s time. What if I do it and people start to talk? Confidence is something that moves people. An uneducated fake pastor can control a Harvard business graduate in his church, because of his self confidence. Observe any fake pastor, you will see this trait. Scandals upon scandals, and yet they keep coming like a horse. 

BE BOLD AND WISE – God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, love and sound mind. Imagine if the genuine pastor has the boldness to pray for the sick, and speak the mind of God prophetically, without being obsessed about mistakes and what have you. The limitation of the genuine pastor is her lack of courage. Be bold be courageous; the words of the Lord to Joshua. (Read Joshua 1:1-9)

Dear, fake man of God, 

 All your works can bring you earthly profit, but your end will not be good. So don’t ignore the gentle warnings of the spirit. I know you feel empty in all the places of your being but you feel ashame to surrender. Let it go. Surrender to Christ… He cares about your soul and your future.

Dear genuine man of God,

You cannot attract what you attack. All prophets and healers are not fake. Though some are, that doesn’t give you the audacity to condemn all. Teach what is right. Be open minded about this world. Use your gifts and talents without fear. Ask God to help you to increase financially, so that you can defend the faith handed to you in all platforms of communication. Don’t be afraid. Don’t limit yourself as you watch the evil man grow tall like a palm tree. Rise. Illuminate the darkness

I DON’T


Photo Credit: Google image

Consider myself as anything worth emulating

Why would you waste your time and resources

Trying to become anything worthless in being

I am worthless

I am hopeless

A destitute, standing under the spotlight

There is nothing good within me, except ego

There is nothing good within me except illusions

They went out there, looking for someone to emulate

They travelled far and near, searching for hope in others

Why would you waste your time searching for dry lands

To  anchor your soul on, when the ocean is beckoning on you?

I don’t consider myself to be worth emulating

I don’t consider myself to be worth emulating

I’m wrapped up in sin, Without Christ;

I am a sounding brass,

A trumpet sound, without meaning

Look into the eyes of the ones whose heart has

Been invaded by His (Christ)  very own life

On this dreary side of eternity –

There is a refuge of a savior

For the weary heart and the broken

His worth in them

is worth emulating

NEVER TRY TO IMPRESS ANYONE! NOT EVEN GOD.


I say it again; never try to impress anyone, not even God”. God breathes upon us with complete satisfaction. His desire is to see our hearts being impressed upon by His boundless love.
You have probably see it in your own personal life or from the lives of other believers or Christians, who love to impress others with certain actions, so they can be affirmed. We are creatures who dearly love to see others affirm our uniqueness. Through this form of weakness, we always or sometimes try to convince others through all forms of impressions. We love to create the impression that we are the top dog of the company, by applying all manner of office politics, just to please some people or the boss. Do you sometimes feels the weight of being a people’s pleaser? Do you feel the guilt of being an approval addict? Do you sometimes feels you will be lonely if you say it just as it is, to your one and only good friend? Don’t worry my friend; you are not alone in this battle. There are millions of people in our world today, who are suffering from this epidemic. You can be set free, my friend! What I have personally learn through my personal journeys is that; “trying to impress people takes you out of your natural self; automatically, you become fake and bound with negative ties”.

As a Christian and a leader, it is my holy duty to love people irrespective of their behavior and attitude. In the same margin, I also face the temptation which pounce on me to kick my behind out of my natural zone, so to please certain class of people, in order that I might not lose them or anger them, one way or the other. Friend the totality of life is this; “you cannot please people no matter what you do’. You just have to stay with the truth and let the truth have its own free course. This may sound simple and cool, but it takes a courageous man to say “I cannot please all men, regardless..”.

Do we have to impress God? This is where most believers fail. Let this truth sink into your heart..”God does not want you to impress Him with nothing”. The Christian life is not a life of religious efforts and self-righteousness acts to convince God. It is rather the life of Christ flowing through the believer, through the power of the Holy Spirit. Our style and methods of giving, prayer and all manner of Christian rituals performed just to make God feel Good about us, are all clanging cymbals. My friend, allow God to impress your heart with the fullness of His manifold grace and love. As you behold Him, singing over your life with contentment, and eternal approval of your standing with HIM, your life will effortlessly birth forth what pleases Him.

By rebirth, you have become a beloved and dearly accepted child to the king. I end by giving you one of my favorite scriptures in the Bible. I find true satisfaction in my natural self, knowing I don’t have to do too much to impress God, but I do much because He has impressed me with His love, like a father will impress on his child with his love and the child begins to excel and bear much fruit, from the flow of his fathers love. God shouts and breathe over you with love. Which means you matter to Him, just as you are in Him, through grace.

Zephaniah 3:17 (NET Bible) 17 The Lord your God is in your midst; he is a warrior who can deliver. He takes great delight in you; he renews you by his love; he shouts for joy over you.

The kind of life which says, “if I don’t do much for God and meet all the standards of the law, I will not please Him” This kind of believer is ignorant of the fact that before we ever did anything for God, we were a delight through the cross. God takes great delight in you my good friend. If i have to shout this from the roof top or use megaphone to sound this precious truth into your ears, I will do it all day till you say “yes i believe, I am a delight of God”. Remember I did not say, our lives should not please God! Our lives should not please God on the basis of our human efforts to convince Him. I know you probably know this scripture in the book of Romans which says when we were yet sinners… Okay, let the Bible speak for itself so that every doubt settles in your mind. God was not angry with you, being an unbeliever. He did loved you but you couldn’t enjoy His love because the gospel light has not yet shine in your heart. Friend we were blind and ignorant to a love granted to us freely through Christ.

The Bible say; Romans 5:7-8 (TLB) Even if we were good, we really wouldn’t expect anyone to die for us, though, of course, that might be barely possible. But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. Did you see that. God showed His great love for us by sending Christ Jesus. I don’t think there is anything on this earth or in the world to come that can negate the great love of God towards you. There is nothing you can do to make Him love you less or more. He just love you. That is His nature. God is love and in His perfect love, all fears of life, vamoosed. Let Him impress you with How much He loves you and see you life transformed by His great love. Much love and grace to you. Thanks for reading and sharing the grace gospel to friends and other believers.

PRIORITY


20140721-122126.jpg

Book Title Poetry:

Priority.
Experiencing forgiveness
The greatest story ever revealed.
Jesus;
He Came to set the captives free,
Inside out.
No wonder they call him the savior.
Who am I?
Born from innocence,
Of permanent value,
Destined to reign,
In his image.

IF HE BLINKS


“…we shall forever succumb to the woes of life and live as those who do not have hope. Thanks be unto our God through our Savior Jesus Christ, we can hold our head above the waters and breath hope into our weak lungs… because He that watch over us in loyal love, does not slumber” Hallelujah to the lamb of God!!

Psalm 121:3 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.

What a profound promise to the believer. God will not suffer your foot to be moved. We understand that it is never the will of God that we fall  from good health to sickness or from glory to garbage. God does not work for the devil and neither is the devil on vacation. Satan came to destroy all the good and the perfect things which comes from The Lord. Jesus said I came that you will experience abundance in me. (John 10:10) If our God blinks His eye, we shall be preys to the wicked, in lightening speed. Thank God we can walk daily with assurance and certainty over the future, knowing that God watches over us to establish us in His perfect grace. Friend, if you are facing an adverse situation on every side or you have fallen from the summit of life, know that it shall work for your Good. God is the lifter and the establish-er of our life’s. Every adverse situation is a temporal season for the manifestation of the greater glory. When Satan thinks he has permanently pinned you to the ground with lost of job, divorce, setback, illness, rejection, and all the odds stack up against you; God will always lift the righteous when he falls down seven times and be our light in the midst of the obscure darkness. He watch every move of the believer to perfect our ways with purpose. Your God is awaken with love to lavish you with unmerited favor.

Psalm 121:5 The LORD is thy keeper: the LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand.

Having a clear understanding that God watches over you, stabilize our heart from the fear of the office politics and the unstable economy. He shall not suffer thee to be moved into disgrace by your enemies. This is my anchor and strength that I serve a God who is concerned about the welfare of my life, 24/7. The trap of the wicked against the righteous shall not prosper. Because God is watching!! Even the strongest and the most trusted men will blink over their promises. The government fails, the church fails, the minister disappoints. Not your God; He keep thee with a high-octane passion. Who am I that God should watch over me? Because your life is hidden in Christ, and you are more than a sparrow. Under His wings of grace, the righteous takes cover from the arrows that flies by noonday and the conspiracies of the wicked by night. Is your soul bruised? His promise to keep your soul from depression and anxiety is forever established in Christ Jesus. You can bank on it today! Your Bible says that; “The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul” (Psalm 121:7) If God shall preserve you from all evill… it includes the evils you see around you today. Sometimes we think God is the one who initiates evil in our lives. Far be from God; He is the one who keep our soul from the evil mechanization of the evil men.

Don’t you know, you are not just a face in the crowd? You are Gods own, and He breathes over you with contentment. God watches over you not because of your good behavior or self effort…He watches and preserves His covenant children. Look unto Jesus even now, if life has knock you out of your feet, and see Him restore you in a hundred fold. Hallelujah! Don’t despair or be disappointed with life. Your help comes from The Lord. Will you trust Him today as you journey through life? Declare with the Psalmist today, with your eyes on the lover of your soul, that God is your help through it all. Speak aloud to your situation till your soul conceive the reality of a supernatural help for you today.

“My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.” Psalm 121:2

Yes, your help comes from the Lord. You can earnestly expect help from the one who created the heavens and the earth, without sweat. He is our God and the sustainer of our life. May He who raise Jesus from the grave, bring you out from the contrary winds of life and crown you with peace and life. Amen!!

THE PLEASURE OF BELIEVING


20140606-095014.jpg

We can all live in true joy in a negative world. Jesus has become the complete package, that satisfies every form of hunger and need of the human heart. A heart anchored daily in the completeness of Jesus, experience the Spirit activity of stirring inner peace and joy to affect our external life. Worries and anxiety is a sign that we are not trusting God or we are not persuaded by the truth of His word. I have had my share of worries and uncertainty in my heart, this whole week. Then again, I am truly encouraged by the heart of my Father in heaven, through scripture. His desire is to see you and I, walk in real happiness: Now my heart is full of good expectation joy and peace, which comes from Jesus. I thank Christ Jesus, for lavishing me super-abundantly with the grace to ride through the storms. Friend, I don’t know what ails you today; I just want to assure you that, no matter what your situation is today, the secret to peace is to keep believing that you can make it through the storm. Your eyes firmly fixed on Jesus, the author and the finisher of your faith. Have a graceful weekend!  Amen!!

 

GROW IN GRACE

YOU ARE FULL: STOP PRAYING FOR FULLNESS!


Photo Credit: Google imageThe just shall live by faith! Faith in what? The Christian life is impossible or meaningless without the believer judging God to be true and faithful in what the cross has wrought for us. In Christ Jesus you have been supplied with all things to the fullest. To be conscious of your lack, weakness and impotence, instead of your fullness in Him cuts you off from the grace of God. You may think, I am not strong enough, holy enough, righteous enough, blessed enough, accepted enough, forgiven enough, loved enough, anointed enough or fruitful enough. Your bucket is not half full…In Christ Jesus you are complete and whole, but it takes faith to walk in fullness.You may ask, “How can I believe I am full when am already broke busted and disgusted?”.

Beloved, you can believe you are full because your life is hidden in Christ and He is full and loaded. Paul sounds the trumpet so loud in our unbelieving ears; “For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and in Christ you have been brought to fullness. [Collossians 2:9-10a] Did you saw that? In Christ, you have been brought to fullness! That is good news, to rescue your soul from toilsome labor, guilt, anxiety, fear and insecurity for tomorrow. Stop praying; “God make me full and start recognizing your fullness in Christ through faith. You want to overcome sin and sickness? Recognize that in Christ your sins has been punished to non-existence and your life has been redeemed from the curse of the law so that you can enjoy good health, even as your soul prospers.
