REMEMBRANCE AND THANKSGIVING

At this time of the year , November precisely, we often remember and celebrate the lives and commitment or our beloved ones who gave their lives in order that we may have and enjoy relative peace. Our memories of them is a continuing source of encouragement and strength to our lives as individuals, as family members, as friends and as patriots. There have been moments of tears, deep sighs, thoughts, dreams and heartfelt expressions. Different emotions and sentiments are expressed, based on the depth of love or closeness with these dear, departed ones. Life is a mixture of sweet and bitter; pleasant and painful; joyful and sorrowful experiences. Some of these losses both recent and from distant past still feel fresh or are being continually refreshed.
In the midst of our pain, sorrow, loneliness, anxiety and grief, Jesus Christ offers us comfort, companionship, peace, hope and joy. Wars and hostilities, both internally and internationally have raged and are still raging. From the 1st and 2nd World Wars, to regional wars, civil wars and onslaughts of terrorist activities, human lives continue to be undervalued and wasted. Hostilities are still going on in Syria, Iraq, Ukraine and Nigeria. The conflict between Israel and the Palestinians has not been easily resolved. Abuses of military and economic powers continue to promote and fuel acts of terrorism and vandalism across the globe.Some individuals and nations are guilty in this regard.That is why irresponsible and barbarous groups as IS and Boko Haram are still flexing their muscles. The International Community looks relatively helpless! BUT THE TIME FOR UNITED NEUTRALIZING ACTION IS NOW, BEING ALREADY OVERDUE!
Christopher Foster once said:

“The memories we cherish are enduring, the pains and sorrows we feel do not often pass quickly, and we are conscious of our lives continuing to be changed by the past and the present. Often we are sustained by the love and care of others who support us while, for many, faith nourishes us with the promise that eternal love binds us together in life and death.”

It is only good and worthwhile to look after the families and dependants of the departed fallen heroes and heroines!It shows more how truly appreciative we are. On the same not ex-service men and women should be properly looked after, including those who have become disabled!
Thomas Attig said:

“As we cherish memories we return to freshen and deepen our understanding of those who have died, attend to them again, bring them closer, embrace them in their absence, reconnect with some of the best in life, feel grateful, feel the warmth of our love for them, sense that they are grateful for our remembering and feel the warmth of their love for us.”

Human beings throughout history look confused and helpless in the face of death. Death strikes when he is ready. Death is the common enemy of mankind! We are limited and powerless, but God Almighty knows it all. God has power over life and death! Jesus Christ has defeated death!
Jesus said: “I am the living one! I was dead, but I have authority over death and the world of the dead. ” (Revelations 1:18).
Death came because of sin. Mankind was designed by God to live forever! The corruption and wickedness in the world is the fruit of sin and death is the due reward. At the right time in history, God took the initiative to rescue mankind from sin and death. He did so through Jesus Christ. God then made it possible for us to receive his nature and thus become free from the power of sin and its consequences, which are spiritual and physical deaths. These bring in sicknesses, diseases and all kinds of woes! Jesus Christ delivered us from all of theses woes which come from disobeying God. Jesus set us free.
The Bible states: Being now made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness and the end everlasting life. For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ, our Lord(Romans 6:22-23).
Jesus Christ died for our sins to pay the wages for us. He arose from the dead to make us assured of pardon and give new life from God[the God-Kind-of Life] to us.
The Bible states: If you shall confess with your mouth, Jesus as Lord and shall believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you shall be saved. For with the heart a person believes and is made righteous and with the mouth he confesses and is saved. Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. Romans 10:9-10, 13.

Jesus is alive. Death is vanquished! Because Jesus lives, all those who believe in him shall live also. For the believer in Christ, death is not final. At resurrection God gives those who believe new bodies; bodies which never die. (2 Corinthians 5:1-10)

Jesus said: I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. (John 11:25-26a).
Overwhelmed by the problems of life, Jeremiah encouraged himself in the prevailing power of God Almighty: Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning. Great is your faithfulness. (Lamentations 3:22-23). Jesus is the Prince of Peace. A time is coming soon when there shall no longer be wars. When Jesus comes to reign as King of kings and Lord of lords. Then people of every nation shall not learn about wars. Swords shall be converted into plowshares and spears into pruning hooks. (Isaiah 2:2-4)
Life is full of choices. We make choices daily. The choices we make affect our lives presently and for the future. Each person needs to examine his life and make a U-turn back to God. A good gift offered needs to be received in order to be owned. God offers us his peace. Peace in the heart and mind; peace at home; peace in our communities; peace in our nations and peace in our world.
Prayer: O LORD of peace; Thank You for the offer of your peace. Help us to accept the peace you have given through your Son Jesus Christ, who has made peace between us and You. Forgive us of our failures and trespasses. Help each one of us to repent and be converted to You. At this time of remembrance, we thank you for the lives of millions of our people across nations of the world who fought and served in various wars, so that we may have relative peace. Help each one of us still alive, to humbly examine himself, call upon Jesus and receive your pardon and inward peace. We ask through the same Jesus Christ, who is the coming Prince of Peace; King of kings and Lord of lords. Amen.

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.

THIS WORLD SYSTEM AND SAVING FAITH

This world and its lusts plus its corruption are soon passing away, but anyone who does the will of God abides forever.We are all advised not to put our lives’ hopes on worldly possessions,acquisitions,fleshly desires, pride and arrogance. The craze after sexual lusts and all forms of sexual perversions should be deleted from our lives. All forms of greed, drunkeness, gluttony, drunkeness with power, star-gazing,palmistry, reflexology, witchcraft,satanism and all forms of idolatory, should be got rid of out of our lives and society. Human body and life are precious in the sight of GOD , the MANUFACTURER! Therefore, all forms of bodily abuse,anti-semitism, racism, terrorism, and all forms of human oppression and abuse, should be discarded. There is no small or big error.There is no small or big sin! Sin is sin;no matter how big or small. Every form of disregard for the CREATOR is sin.Sin in any form,hidden,open,small,or big is punishable. For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord(Romans 6.23). It is written: Whosoever transgresseth,and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. II John 1.9. It is not a matter of religious debate.  This is the end time.This present world and its systems are coming to an end very soon!Reference to man in this message is referring to the entire human race and not to any gender. God made man perfectly in the begining and had regular fellowship with them. Man was given power and dominion to rule this Earth. However, man fell from his position by selling out to Lucifer who came deceitfully in the form of a snake(serpent). Man was specially made to live successfully on Earth. Lucifer(also commonly called the devil, Satan, prince of the power of the air)was originally made to live in Heaven, but because he committed high treason, he was cast down from Heaven and thus became a rebel and vagabond, having no settled place. Satan chose to disposess man from his privileged position by successfully tricking him to obey him while disobeying Almighty God. From that time in the Garden of Eden, the ways and life of mankind became corrupted, because Satan took a prolonged, but temporary control. After thousands of years of sending messages through many prophets, mankind was not truly repentant for their corrupted ways. A designed master plan was therefore unfolded by GOD. He decided to send His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, Who came as GOD in human flesh in order to rescue sinful mankind from sin and its consequences, which is death,(both spiritual death and physical death). As the only one born without the usual human conception, Jesus Christ did not share in the sinful nature of mankind. He was therefore qualified to be the true, one and only SIN-BEARER, for the entire human race, right from Adam to the last person who shall ever be born into this world; and that includes all of you reading this message. This is not a case of debate, argument or logic. This is a matter of great divine, present and eternal importance, put in place by the Almighty God ; MAKER of Heaven and Earth.  Anyone may argue or try to excuse or exonerate himself/herself, but that would not be tenable on the dreadful day of judgment, when GOD shall judge the secrets of the hearts of ALL PERSONS, by that MAN (Jesus Christ) chosen by HIM. The Almighty God gave this approval to Jesus Christ, by raising Him from death on the third day, after Jesus gave His life as a ransom for ALL HUMAN BEINGS. Jesus Christ was too holy for sin, sickness, death, hell and the devil to hold him down! Up from the grave He arose, with a mighty triumph over his foes. He arose , a victor from the dark domain! The blood of Jesus Christ was an offering made to blot away ALL sin. That blood forever speaks for mercy. However, EVERY PERSON needs to respond to the mercy of God shown through the shedding of the blood of the INNOCENT JESUS CHRIST, Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the whole world!  GOD would not wait indefintely for a person to repent and come to Him through trusting in Jesus Christ. For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn it; but that the world, through him, might be saved (John 3:16-17). What happens if a person keeps on postponing the surrender of his/her life to GOD through Jesus Christ? He /she may die before doing so. Another person may suddenly become too sick to respond and ultimately die unsaved. Yet another, through arrogance or pride may delay this all-important decision of life and eventually end his life unsaved! Imagine a person who fell mistakenly into a 500 feet ditch. That person had a lifeline of a very strong cord let down to reach him. For such a person to be rescued, he /she must take hold of the lifeline, grasp it and follow any instruction given to him/her from above! That is a simple physical illustration. GOD ALMIGHTY has sent THE BEST LIFELINE (Jesus Christ) from Heaven above. It is written that if you confess Jesus Christ as Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from death, you shall be saved. (Romans 10:9-10). The  wages of sin has been paid with the blood of Jesus Christ. Approval and confirmation for this fact is the resurrection of Jesus Christ on the third day. By his resurrection, God made Jesus Lord over all principality, power, might, dominion, and every name under the earth, on the earth and in the heavenly places. At the mention of the name of Jesus every knee must bow. Every tongue must confess that Jesus Christ is Lord! This is not a matter of choice. Soon or later, the LORDSHIP OF JESUS CHRIST over ALL the Earth shall be fully established, when He comes back as King of kings and Lord of lords! This is very imminent because the world system by its own disobedient will is already setting the stage for the LORD OF GLORY to take over. A false world government would soon come up, offering great economic and social solutions to world problems. That is of the Anti-christ.This would be short-lived. Then would come the true government ushering 1000-years reign of Jesus Christ, the MESSIAH. We shall treat this in greater detail soon. But before then; Come to Jesus today before it is too late. Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. JESUS died and rose again for ALL human beings, but EACH person must call upon Jesus personally! Are you saved ? Then go on to give diligence to make your calling and election very sure. God bless you all.
