The Eagerness of God Leads Us to Say: Repent and Believe the Gospel!

During his earthly days of ministry Jesus proclaimed across Israel emphatically; “The time is fulfilled,and the Kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye,and believe the gospel.”(Mark 1: 15). He preached and taught the multitudes,small groups, individuals;both male and female,truths of the Kingdom of God.
Many people heard him joyfully and had the various needs in their lives met. They were healed of sicknesses. They were set free from Satanic attacks and bondages; The courses of many lives were transformed from sorrow into joy; from hopelessness into hope. Jesus had time to hear the rich and the poor alike. He had time for the socially outcast. He never looked down on anybody; never turned back anyone who came to him sincerely seeking. The hungry were fed. No need was treated carelessly. People came to him from every region and he met their needs. Jesus came to seek those who were lost in sin and to save them.
Having completed his mission, he is now seated at right hand of Almighty God. He is there waiting till the right time to come back to take over the government of the whole world. He is coming back as King of kings and Lord of lords. His seat of government shall be Jerusalem! When he comes there would be peace all over the world. All rebellion shall be subdued! Please read our message posted last month about the power in the name of Jesus and other similar messages. Surrender your life to God without delay, if you have not.
Someone asked to know the biggest sin. It is dangerous and ridiculous to try categorising sins! Adultery, lying, theft, fornication, pride, rebellion to the truth, murder, idolatry are all sins. None of these sins is smaller or better than Homosexuality, Lesbianism, disobedience to parents, laziness or backbiting! Homosexuality is as much a terrible sin as theft, fornication or lying is! Today in August 2014, God is sending us to tell you and all across the world; especially to anyone yet to make a U-Turn back to God. Jesus Christ is coming back soon. The Kingdom of God is here now – The Kingdom reign of Jesus is very imminent. Repent now and believe the Gospel! Whosoever shall call upon the name of The Lord shall be saved.(Romans 10: 13). God bless you. Please get in touch with us. We are helpers of your joy. God bless you.

CAN HOMOSEXUALITY BE HEALED BY GOD?- PART 1

Yes.Homosexuality can be healed by God because it is a chronic problem facing some people in our world today.God Almighty loves every man and woman,boy and girl,in this world, throughout every generation!He, as Maker, has made provision for all to enjoy in this world, as human beings treat their fellow human beings as they would wish to be treated- in reciprocal love,peace and harmony!A hungry person needs food. A thirsty person needs drink;or better still needs water,which is the best drink.A sad and sorrowful person needs comfort and encouragement.A sick person needs medicine;or better still,needs to see the doctor most suitable for his or her condition.A naked person needs clothing.A homeless person,who lives rough,needs good shelter and acceptance.The fearful person needs assurance and courage.The drug addict needs counsel, deliverance,healing,courage,faith and hope.The lonely person needs healthy and normal relationship.The Twenty-first Century world needs to listen to God,the MANUFACTURER,Maker of Heaven,Earth and the whole Universe.God the ALMIGHTY,made all things in this universe, perfectly and in order. He made human beings perfectly as the greatest of his creation. He made human beings male and female.He empowered human beings with the ability to respond to the spiritual, physical and intellectual realms.We were also given the ability to produce offsprings like us.Human beings were also given the liberty to make choices.God Almighty did not create us as robots,but as intelligent,creative beings!However, this liberty was abused by our first forebears(Adam- the first man and Eve- the first woman),through the manipulative,deceptive actions of Satan,one of the most powerful and beautiful created angelic beings made by God.Satan had plotted to overthrow God and raise rebellious beings like himself to oppose God and his sovereignty!(Please,read more about this in our posts of March 1,2012 titled’Grace Upon Grace:All-sufficient Grace’). Also read our post of March 18 2012 titled: ‘This World System and Saving Faith’ Our world today,more than ever before,needs to repent and run back to God!A confused person needs to be sorted out by appropriate verbal counsel,spiritual,physical,psychological and physiological counsel or a combination of some or all of these treatments!NOTHING is too difficult for GOD!A person in need should go to the person who can best solve his or her problem or supply his or her need.If a man lacks something and refuses to go to the person or place where his need would be met,he would continue to suffer unduly and if he dies in his needy condition,he would only have himself to blame.In the begining,God made human beings perfectly as male and female.As a result of drug abuses over many generations,human bodies have been subjected to abnormal changes and manipulative modifications!Chromosomal aberrations have resulted in the manifestations of both physical and physiological abnormalities in nature,contrary to the original creation by God Almighty!The resultant development of genes due to mutations can therefore not be attributed to a normal way of life,comparable to the creation by God.When an individual exhibits certain unusual,subnormal,or abnormal traits,it should never be misconstrued as God-given traits or characteristics!There are inheritable as well as non-inheritable characteristics.The mere fact that any person,male or female develops unusual interest in another person of the same sex must never be misinterpreted as an indication of a gift or a condition created by God! God is not and can never be the author or maker of confusion!Some individuals are shy from early age and as a result of poor handling,they remain shut in or badly oriented with inability to relate properly to the opposite sex!There have been cases of persons who have been abused during development and as such reach a chronic condition of inferiority due to fear and less physical ability to challenge their bullies or oppressors!Due to negative,unproductive,repetitive sexual abuses,such people settle in or resign to a life-time of unnatural sexuality!In some cases,men or women who have been jilted or maltreated by friends or intended marital partners in heterosexual relationships in the past resort to second-rate status of unnatural sexuality.Yet other cases exist of individuals,who out of curiosity,decide to experiment with homosexuality and thus get hooked on!It may surprise you, friend, that other cases exist who out of deliberate,conscious disobedience,adopt a homosexual life style.Some others have got into it through frustration,arising from parental or family abuses.This message is coming to you by the mercies of God and never intended to condemn you if at all you are already in a homosexual relationship.You might have been the victim of inflential persons in society who used their positions and wealth to lure you into homosexuality;It is not too late to decide to be set free today!Perhaps in your own case,you got into homosexuality gradually through the substitution of negative alternatives to normal sexual orientation:Alternatives such as gradual indulgence in pornography.There are also negative alternatives such as masturbations.Whosoever shall call upon the name of the LORD shall be delivered.God is able to change your negative sexual orientation into HIS NORMAL POSITIVE CREATIVE TYPE! You only need to ask for his help.Jesus said that God loves the world so much as to give his only begotten Son that whosoever believes on him should not perish,but have everlasting life.God did not send his Son into this world to condemn it,but to save it through his Son(John 3:16-17)God loves us all,but hates our sins in any form.Sin kills,but JESUS CHRIST Saves completely.For the wages of sin is death,but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ,our Lord (Romans6:23).ALL GOVERNMENTS AND THOSE IN POSITIONS OF AUTHORITY SHOULD STOP TOYING WITH THE ESTABLISHED COUNSEL OF GOD.The Marriage Institution should not be tampered with;otherwise,God would deal appropriately with all who disobey.The sanctity of marriage as being between ONE MAN AND ONE WOMAN should be upheld!Do not allow any government,politician or religious leader to mislead you and give you false sense of security in continued disobedience to God!

GRACE UPON GRACE: ALL- SUFFICIENT GRACE

Greetings of the season to you all. Lent is the period from Ash Wednesday to Easter (40 week days) when adherents to the Christian faith observe a time of fasting and praying to remember Christ’s  fast in the wilderness. This has been a very old tradition. It is very good. More important however, is the fact that Christ expects more than that from us Christians, if we truly claim to love him. What did Christ do for us? He emptied himself of his glory and came down into this rotten world of ours. He became human, took the position of a servant, went about doing good, lived a sinless live, submitted himself to human insults and indignities, got arrested, tried, tortured, slapped, spat upon, tied to a whipping post and flogged to the point of exhaustion and virtual death, with his innocent blood splashed all over him and all over the ground. His looks became disgusting and his form irreconcilable to his watching mother, Mary and other faithful disciples, who were too stunned to believe what they saw! It was spectacular enough that the CREATOR of the whole world submitted himself to his creatures. Jesus Christ, the WORD of GOD, through whom the world was created, did this for the purpose of rescuing humankind from sin, the greatest calamity that ever plaqued the human race! GOD ALMIGHTY could not be appeased and satisfied by any other means than through the life sacrifice of His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ. No other blood was clean enough for a ransome!No human effort could match up with the life of Jesus Christ! The Holy Blood shed on the Cross, fully satisfied The Holy Almighty God! The life of Jesus was given as his blood was spilled on that cross in Jerusalem, outside the city walls, on Calvary, at the ‘Place of the Skull’. Jesus was killed like a criminal, on a dirty, old cross, with dirty nails through his hands and feet and a crown of thorns on his head. The film ‘Passion of Christ’, is very good, but I hereby say that it was yet a simpler version of the actual pain and suffering borne by Jesus Christ, over 2000 years ago! As Jesus hung on that dirty cross, in great pain, he had time to listen to the sincere heart-cry of a criminal, crucified beside him.  To the last-minute prayer  and cry of that repentant criminal, Jesus said: ”Today you shall be with me in Paradise”.  To that thief it was a narrow escape to Paradise! To every other person, it may not always be the same story. There is a time to respond to the love of God before it is too late. Jesus said: For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life (John 3:16). God gave his only begotten Son, when he was born as a human being(a baby boy) on the first Christmas. The giving was actually made complete when Jesus died on the cross! He gave his life by shedding his blood in my place and in your place. He did this even before we knew him. Jesus gave his life when we were so hopeless as a human race. He provided access to God through his atoning eternal sacrifice. Since then till NOW, there is hope for every person(WHOSOEVER). Jesus also said, by way of a simile: And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life(John3:14-15). He made reference to the children of Israel in the wilderness during their journey from Egypt to Canaan. The Israelites sinned by complaining against God and Moses. Snakes were sent to bite them to such a quick extent that many died! Being terrified, the Israelites quickly repented and pled for mercy. God then responded by insructing Moses: Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live (Numbers 21:8). Moses obeyed God and lifted up the brass statue of the snake upon a pole. He then called upon the people to look at the brass serpent. Indeed, as God said, so it was that ALL those who LOOKED at the serpent, lifted upon a pole, survived the poisonous venom of the fiery serpents and LIVED! More than any simile, JESUS CHRIST hung upon the cross for hours outside Jerusalem city wall 2000+ years ago, to pay the price that sin demanded (DEATH). Centuries before then, God spoke through Prophet Isaiah and said: Look unto me and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else (Isaiah 45:22). Jesus himself has said to you and me to look unto him in order to be saved. Paul said: How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him;God also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers  miracles, and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will?(Hebrews 2:3-4). My friend, are you saved?Please, be saved today. NO REASON FOR ANYONE TO BE LOST AFTER GOD HAS MADE SURE THAT SALVATION IS AVAILABLE  THROUGH JESUS CHRIST! What more can and should we do for Jesus? TELL others what JESUS has done for you. Let the redeemed of the LORD say so. If you are saved, tell your family, friends and acquaintances. FIND them. TELL them. BRING them to JESUS. Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. There is grace upon grace. There is all-sufficient grace! Please, take action now! God bless you.
