The two Angels beckoned unto the Disciples while looking up on the mountain where Jesus ascended before their eyes. "Now when He had spoken these things, while they watched, He was taken up, and a cloud received Him out of their sight. 10 And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as He went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel, 11 who also said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven.”
This is just a tip of the iceberg. I hope what The Apostle Peter and Paul said of his imminent return gives another insights of his earthly returns.Brethren Christ comes.Keep looking up for the trumpet is at hand.Be at alert.

Jesus Ascension

Jesus Ascension
He is coming Again.Be prepared.

Martha and Mary!!

 I am going to write my mind on these two women.Though i may not be able to tell you but i will tell you a good chunk of what i have in mind and in application to our women daily living.

I don't know if they are married or not,but i knew that these two women has come across and have lived with my saviour.They happened to live in that century that  my Lord Jesus was on earth for the work of reconciliation. Christ an ambassador and the only son of God our heavenly father was on earth born into the home every one knows.If you don't know that story please read the first three chapters of the Gospels of Mathew and Luke.

They were poor by virtue of  where they live,the village of Bethany,poor ones homes!! The two women lived in Bethany at Jerusalem with their brother Lazarus.They must be Jesus childhood friends.This family are so dear to Jesus that he wept publicly and that for the first time in their calamity period.The mockers Jews were all there,shedding their crocodiles tears!! They were both familiar with Jesus sayings but with difference in their level of intakes.Mary has a very sharp receptive interest in hearing the word of Christ.Mary treasured Jesus words than meeting Jesus needs.I love Mary than Martha having read what the Lord said concerning both of them.

Yes Jesus got to Bethany from Jordan and met throngs of people weeping and mourning the death of Lazarus.No one knew the causative agent of his death,we just knew Lazarus was ill prior to his death ,was buried, and it has been like that for four days.He announced his mission that Lazarus is asleep and that he is there to wake him up.

Jesus knew.I believed those who have read the portion of the bible in John 11 knew that Jesus waited until Lazarus died before he broke the news.He was confirmed dead,but Jesus said "Lazarus slept".Thomas sometimes make me laugh whenever i read what he said.I wondered the kind of heart and thinking-faculty he had.We do  call him doubting Thomas, but  he is courageous because  at that point when Jesus told the apostles that Lazarus was dead,other apostles were afraid to go to Bethany, Mary and Martha's village but Thomas was not afraid he bravely spoke up and said "Let's go with him,so that we may die with him." Please don't laugh it is a serious matter.When Jesus got there do you know who first rush out?Yes it's like i have read your mind,i knew you  have read it of course. Martha, isn't she? She was telling Jesus that "Master should you has been here my brother would not had died",but Jesus said "Martha, Haven't i told you that if you believe, you shall see the glory of God" and truly Lazarus come forth at the command of Jesus.God is glorified!! The Jews which saw what Jesus did believed on him.What a great power in the hand of a great saviour!!

Back to what i have on mind  about Mary and Martha.The two were sisters were  but with different purpose.Mary's purpose when Jesus is around is to sit at his feet and heard all he had to say while Martha was so busy making food and drinks preparation as if it was marriage feast.Christ has seen Mary's heart that it was well prepared to receive his words,remember he also knew Lazarus was dead.He had seen Martha's heart as well that she was not prepared at all.

I got a story for you about what happened whenever Jesus is coming to the village of these two women

Read on

“Jesus is coming! Jesus is coming!” Mary probably shouted as she came running
into the house where Martha was working. Mary and Martha were sisters who lived in
the town of Bethany with their brother Lazarus. They had many friends, but Jesus was a
very special friend.
Martha probably said, “Come help me get things ready.”
Mary and Martha loved each other and shared the work of keeping their home
clean. But now Mary was so happy she could hardly wait. It had been a long time since
she had seen Jesus and heard from him. He had been teaching and preaching in many places. Mary knew she
would sit up late listening to Jesus talk about God.
Finally, Jesus arrived and Mary and Martha went to the door to welcome Him.
Mary was so interested that she stopped her work when Jesus came. She sat close and listened
to Jesus so she wouldn’t miss a single word He said. Jesus told many wonderful
While Mary was listening, Martha was busy bringing food to everyone. Martha
got tired of serving the guests by herself, so she complained to Jesus, “Lord, don’t you
care that my sister has left me so I have to do all the work by myself? Tell her to come
and help me!”
Jesus answered, “Martha, Martha, you worry about too many things. What Mary
is hearing is more important to her than serving or eating. She has chosen the right thing
and it will not be taken away from her.”
Martha was jealous of her sister. She was mad that Mary got to sit and listen
while she cooked and served the food. Jesus was not telling Martha that cooking was
wrong. He was trying to explain that Martha had a wrong attitude and should not
compare her actions to those of her sister. When you love a person, you aren’t jealous of them or compare yourself to them.

I hope you enjoyed the story.

Welcome back.

I want to write on daily application on what happened in this piece of writing i have just posted.
How do you  see to your day to day activities,when Jesus is around and when he isn't?
Have you been thinking and worrying and have not learned that it is better  and more important to listen to Jesus that to worry over things and life issues!!
Jesus wants us to choose Him over T.V. or things. He wants us to know that He
loves us and asks us to listen and obey Him. God’s Word tells us that we must not compare
ourselves to other people. We must look and listen to what God wants for us and do it.
Do you love Jesus? Does it show? Can people see that you love Jesus? Jesus did
something incredible for us. He died on a cross—in our place—for our wrongs.
That’s how much He loves us. How much do you love Him? Right now you can trust Jesus
and let Him be your best friend. He will help you love others and become better listeners.

Every good bachelor will go for Mary or what do you think?

Speak up

It is better to speak than to be silent.I will speak joyfully what the Lord has placed within me .It is better to speak than to grumble in silence.It is better to live and wait for God than to consider what will never work.God will help me.I have wanted to make a post on the second film watched some weeks ago.

In the runaway bride.
I learned to forgive and to love when crises come up.I also learned never to give up.
I learned that courtship is a must before marriage.
What i really meant about forgiveness is not the casual forgiveness of day to day.I mean forgiving a run away woman! I don't mean a woman who jilted me to marry somebody else and later come back.I can't marry such woman but i am expected to forgive.
Courtship is unique and should be holy.In the courtship as watched in that film i was thrilled that they don't kiss,they don't do petty odd jobs like fingering one another,staying in the dark corners.They visited one another and there is a very wonderful atmosphere of Love in between them.They proved to be  mature in their courtship.
I broke down while watching the scene where the woman flee from the church on the wedding day.It is a pity.It is all over the newspaper.It ruins the man's reputation.I felt so sad and at that moment i could hear my heart prayers that such won't happen to us though i felt the power of forgiveness!!
Another lesson i learned  from the film is that Marriage takes and  requires support,approval and confidence from others.If there is no approval it will be wiser to get out as quickly as possible.God will help me to bear whatever the........
The man love the woman.IN REALITY SUCH MARRIAGE WILL LAST LONGER.The foundation is built on trust,forgiveness and Love.The last but not the least is that they are both faithful to one another while the courtship lasted.I am thrilled.
Though it was a film it could happen in the reality.It ends on a happy note.What i have against the film was that  both the hero of the film don't pray!Should the man has prayed i think such incident would have been averted.
I have spoken!

Mrs. Sarah F Adams' Hymn.

Nearer,my God to Thee
Nearer to Thee
E'en tho' it be a cross
That raiseth me,
Still all my song shall be
Nearer my God to Thee,
Nearer to Thee!

Though like the wanderer,
The sun gone down,
Darkness be over me,
My rest a stone.
Yet in my dreams i'be
Nearer my God to Thee,
Nearer to Thee!

There let the way appear
Steps unto heaven
All that Thou send'st to me
In mercy given
Angels to beckon me
Nearer my God to Thee,
Nearer to Thee!

Then with my walking thoughts
Bright with thy praise,
Out of my stony griefs
Bethel I'll raise:
So be my woes to be
Nearer my God to Thee,
Nearer to Thee!

Or if on joyful wing
Cleaving the sky,
Sun ,moon and stars forgot,
Upwards I fly,
Still all my song shall be,
Nearer my God to Thee,
Nearer to Thee!

Mrs Adam's  thoughts was reflected  over what has transpired within her heart some hudreds years ago.She wanted to draw near unto God.Her song revealed the true state of her Christian's Life.Her song has become household hymn in every Christian home where Christ truly reigns..

You could see a repentant heart sobbing over this song because such heart felt the vacuum existing in between it and God but the fact is as the heart draw near to God we become no hollow.
You can't be hollow as you draw near God because you begin to get equipped and he begin to revealed himself to you.

James 4:8 says "Draw nigh to God and he will draw near to you"

I thanked the Lord for this wonderful song.I believed this is a new song that bring healings.She has been inspired by the Holy Spirit to compose and tune this hymn this way.Really,she has been a blessing.

Yes James 4:8 enjoined us to draw near to God.We are not left out because God too will draw near to us.It is a little but signficant advice.The more we sin the  farther we get to God.The more we abstain from sin, the more we get nearer to God.
The more we pray in Holiness, the more we draw ourselves to God and the more hears us.

She said though trials and temptations may come but they will draw her further to, nearer to God than farther away.It is our tradition to pray against woes but they will come.Jesus said  once we have become his ,his own, we shall face trials and great tribulations in this world but we should cheer up for he has overcome the world.

So cheer up! cheer up!! whatever the situation on grounds.
The devil has said lots of things, i knew, but God has said a few ,those few were  even from the word of God.God might not have spoken to you through his Holy Spirit or through visions,though they are vital for your Spiritual life.
What you have to do is to keep Drawing near and cheer up too!
When you cheer up! Your mind in the midst of trials will be able to sing and to cleave to God.

The end is sweeter for us, for we shall all one ,one one days, leave this world to meet Christ in the air.You must get up there joyfully on your joyful wing.See you there when the rapture come,but DRAW NEAR TO GOD SO AS TO GET UP ON JOYFUL WING.

I watched these two films;Hell Razers and the Runaway bride,both were  full of intrigues and lessons to learn.The two films were both moral and spiritual.One is from Nigeria while the other is an American film.
Mount Zion Film productions in Nigeria has been a lot of blessings to Christians all over, through their outreach drama ministry.I pray the Lord  who has establish the ministry by his call  will keep them through.Amen

I will not like to leave you in the lurch,let me tell you lessons i learned from the films.

In the Hell Razers the drama featured prominent Christians actors and actress from the Church.It centered on a family married but childless for an unspecified years.Prior to been forced out of her matrimonial home,the woman who happened to be the only born again of the family has seen a vision where she gave birth to a baby boy and it was announced in the spiritual realm that a boy who is to be a Hell Razers has been born.In a matter of seconds after the declaration, a devil appeared and refuted the declaration  that his kingdom is not going to be emptied by the baby that he shall kill the boy.He took the boy from the mother but while going on the way the Lord intervened by his appearance and delivered the baby.The woman eventually got pregnant but was thrown out by her husband.The boy grew up to start  derailing by involving in  petty stealing.At age eight his mother caught him trying to steal money from her wardrobe in the middle of the night.He beat up  a schoolmate while at high school and was suspended.He joined occultist while in the college,through rustic and obnoxious activities while on campus he was expelled by the School Authorities.All these occured despite several prayers rendered for him by his mother whom his father has sent away before he was aware that she is pregnant.His father rejected him while in the womb.It was a pastor that christined him Samuel.Samuel never acted the Samuel of the bible at all until the Lord saved his soul.

Let me keep up with  summary,Samuel became a robber,he unknowingly robbed his father.He even saw his mother's pictures in his father's cupboard.Police later got out to raid their hideouts.The hoodlums were shot down including Samuel.I thought he was dead but while  he was  recuperating his mother and the church were praying for him.I think their much prayers saved his life.He gave his life to Jesus  while recuperating in the hospital. I soon come back into realization that it is a film.Oh, i am lost in the film.So drenched.Samuel was sentenced to seven years imprisonment.He worked under hard labour, trust Nigerian prison.Nigerian Prison is a hell.Hell indeed.He came out transformed,while in the prison he has been converting souls.He soon enrolled for leadership course  training and from there began to minister to youths.

He shared his testimonies with the youth while his mother and pastors were there..His estranged father while watching the TV from home  could recognized his wife and from there got to know that the speaker was his son.He gave his life to Jesus  and the family reconciled and were united.

Praise  God.

I could only say  Hell Razers today but Christ willing,other day i will speak about the Runaway bride.However i am not going to end without talking of the Spiritual implication of Marriage  linking to Hell or Heaven.

Spiritual life precede Marriage in the list of life issues to treasure here on earth.Our Spiritual life first.The woman is strong but she married a bull.The man allowed his mother to bring him new wife.He drove out his legitimate wife just because his mother ordered him to do so.Devil has a field day.She alone could not handled the demons propelling Samuel through the stages of his life until the Lord saved him.Marriage has Spiritual implication of Hell or Heaven.

Marriage require special attention we must not shy away from.When we put in efforts that could keep our marriage lasting we will never regret for God will help.Bringing up Children required dedication and steadfastness.It required sticking to God alone.Trusting him on  whatever visions he gave us concerning the child.Devil will not have way when both the husband and wife are  filled with the Holy Spirit.I pray the Lord give the persons reading this blog and all who will read thereafter living testimonies in their marriages.Amen
