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

He is coming Again.Be prepared.

Ebenezer - A stone of help !

The Bible said "God is our refuge and strength,a very present help in trouble" Psalm 46:1 .
This reminded me of  "Days of Elijah" a song i love so much,that when it come to where we sing
   "there's no god like Jehovah"
   "there's no god like Jehovah"
and when he sings,
    "say it loud!...."
I begin to explode,rocking the song to any extent i could,in fact if devils were around they are sure to commit suicide!.The song creates the avenue to ponder on God's wonderful doings,it takes me to the  point where i begin to remember those places,events,incidents,issues and decisions either taken by me or someone else which God has used as stones of help in my life and in other people's lives! Indeed there is no god like Jehovah.I LOVE AND ALWAYS ENJOY THE LYRICS!
Very recently,a couple of weeks ago,i could remember i was once LOCKED UP in one of the Nigeria regular Cell.I was locked up in cell for almost four days on the charges i never committed and will never commit.I once wrote on my blog on the nature of my Job.Security Job is no menial job, though people were paid as if they work like grasshopper yet they work like giants! We are accused of breaking in and stealing in one of the residents flats and best to my knowledge such event is unlikely to happen,though i never can trust everyone i trust myself and i never ever seen the Ladder!
The company i worked for could not help us,but God helped me!

Cell in this country is a den of death.Lions were in there and they were fierce,i mean real and confirmed dared-devils!
The first trouble i encountered  immediately we were locked up was food security.I had not contacted any of my family before we were taken to the police net!I had to share foods with my other colleagues,we ate with raw bare hands!No personal hygiene rules was observed inside the cell,i can't just imagine all i did there were all done by me,i didn't bath for almost two days and i bath once in the cell and no brushing of teeth throughout my stay in the cell.I remembered how  the eldest among the six of us was rubbing his mouth and teeth with his fingers on our third day of been locked up.Mouths stunk like the Capulet's vault,yet they pounded foods as if they were the lions themselves!
.It was on the third day that my uncle came to see me after one of our visiting colleagues had contacted him on his phone and informed him of my plights,phones were collected from us and were switched off!  I can remember how hot tears were dripping down my cheeks as if it will soon turn into ocean and flood up the cell and open it out.Honestly i wept in there and i was very much uncomfortable.We cramped up in there but we are thirty one cellmates,the cell's president  told us that there are instances where there are about ninety people inside the cell,there was no strength in me when i heard that and i can see the same panic on my colleagues faces!

The Cell has become a place of help (an Ebenezer)to me.I am sure to remember the place in future,where i, as innocent as purely as possible on this incident was locked up inside a cell.
Inside the cell,the Holy Spirit asked me to pray in tongues and i did,was comforted in the cell and i was ministered to,in there that,because one is a  Christian does not say one will not be locked up.Jesus once talked of the young ones who are in prison because of him!
I was in prison and you visited me,...Yes,because you have done it to one of these little ones you have done it to me.
Though i am opting out of this Job,even let me say i have opted since the incident,i have developed some security wise tactics and have learned a great deal of lessons,however not with disadvantages i have got arthritis on my palm foot!I think this is the major reason i am leaving, also i am going back to college God's willing.
I  pray that  i shall keep walking in the Lord,keep praying and keep yielding myself  unto the Lord without looking back wherever i go.
Praise the Lord with me and please enjoy the song with me:
                                                   THE DAYS OF ELIJAH

These are the days of Elijah        
Declaring the Word of the Lord
And these are the days of Your
Servant Moses
Righteousness being restored
And though these are days of
Great trials
Of famine and darkness and sword
Still we are the voice in the desert crying
Prepare ye the way of the Lord

Behold He comes riding on the clouds
Shining like the sun at the trumpet call
Lift your voice it's the Year of Jubilee
Out of Zion's hill salvation comes

And these are the days of Ezekiel
The dry bones becoming as flesh
And these are the days of
Your servant David
Rebuilding a temple of praise
And these are the days of the harvest
The fields are as white in Your world
And we are the laborers in Your vineyard
Declaring the Word of the the Lord
