The Light of Men

​John  1:4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.  1:5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

Light is so important that whenever it shines people always beam with smiles and joy. Jesus came to the world to destroy the works of darkness. He accomplished the mission on the cross when the veil of the temple was torn into two. From there, Jesus became the access to the Father. 

Your eyes will be darkened if you do not have Jesus Christ and you will not be able to see the Father. When you surrender your life to Jesus, you have been blessed with a light that can never experience outtage. 

Brethren, let your Light so shine that all may come to your light. Jesus is not for you only, let others experience Jesus and their eyes will not be darkened. I pray for you now, you will continue to shine to the glory of God. Note this, your shinning is not disturbing anyone except those that are in the kingdom of darkness.

Divine Multiplication 

Bible Text 

​John  6:11 And Jesus took the loaves; and when he had given thanks, he distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that were set down; and likewise of the fishes as much as they would.  6:13 Therefore they gathered them together, and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves, which remained over and above unto them that had eaten.

Multiplication that I learnt in my elementary school days opened my understanding to how magical transformation could be. Explaining multiplication within the purview of divine intervention is something that can only be understood in part. Jesus Christ, the Bread of Life overruled common sense to establish divine order of meeting needs. If anyone is waiting for government policies to favour economic projections, then such wait may be in vain. 

Submission to the Lordship of Jesus is the solution that we need to come out of economic quagmire that human wisdom has plunged us into. Nations must as a matter of sacrifice submit their resources at the feet of Jesus for it to be multiplied for human gains. Families and individuals too must equaly submit their resources at Jesus’ feet for divine multiplication to take place. 

Do not hold on to your resources as the only option you have got. Submit your resources to Jesus for multiplication to take place. Your basket shall be made full and your soul made fat in Jesus’ name.

Far Above Principalities 

Mark ​1:24 Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou art, the Holy One of God.

Authority to overcome every powers of the wicked ones had long ago been released unto all the believers through Jesus Christ. Principalities do not just get hold of their victims but they are always on the look out for legal ground to bring about afflictions.

Far above principalities can be interpreted to mean earning due respect from the agents of darkness. Powers that had tormented its host for years surrendered to Jesus without struggle. The funniest aspect of the Bible text being considered is the grand reception that greeted Jesus’ personality when the principalities chronicled the CV of Jesus. You can as well be so treated if only you can identify with Jesus. Jesus will give you power to be far above principalities. 

To become a true overcomer and be above principalities in their trickery, one must belong to the winning side and that is Jesus side. I believe God for you that you have started living an overcomers life in Jesus’ name. Amen 

Beware of Praise Singers 

Bible Text 

1 Samuel  18:7 And the women answered one another as they played, and said, Saul hath slain his thousands, and David his ten thousands.  18:14 And David behaved himself wisely in all his ways; and the LORD was with him.
Many have had their journey to purpose discovery and fulfillment terminated as a result of insensitivity to the tricks of their adversaries. If you are waiting for your adversaries to show up with physical attack then you may have to wait endlessly. David knew this and he was sensitive to the tricks of his adversaries. 

Christians are having one major enemy and that is the devil. Three most potent weapons the devil is deploying against this generation are pride, love of money and sexual pervasion. When people praise sing and you are falling for their sweet words, tendency exists you will put on the garment of pride. Another enemy of progress that comes the way of men that people praise sing is the alluring gesticulations from women of easy virtues. Do not fall for sweet words because it will not be of any benefit in the long run. 

Be like David that behaved himself despite accolades that the entire nation showered on him. Outshinning your senior colleagues because of momentary recognition is not a good option for a purpose driven Christian. Let God do the promotion while you keep doing your best. God bless you.

The Help you Need

​Bible Text

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

To God be the glory for another opportunity to share with you the mind of God. The above Bible text happened to be a statement of fact that no power can contest. True help can only come from God and not from human calculations. Those that have been disappointed before will agree with me that it is when God helps that human being is truly liberated. Any help that is not from God is bondage in disguise. 

The psalmist went further in  Psalms  124:1-2 (“If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, now may Israel say;  124:2 If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, when men rose up against us”) and acknowledged the help of God. 

The help you can get from God is unlimited. Belonging to God and having good relationship God is a guarantee for His help.  Think about anything good and Godly that is beyond your reach and tell God about  helping you to get it, you’ll be amazed at what He will do. Do not leave the Lord’s side and all your good and Godly expectations shall not be aborted nor diverted in Jesus’ name. 

Yes Jesus!

​Bible Text

John ;3:1 There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews: 2 The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him. 3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

I congratulate you if you have chosen to walk with Jesus faithfully and if you are still struggling to find your feet, then you need not to continue delaying saying YES Jesus. Nicodemus was a highly revered person in the society and despite his reputable social status among humans, he had a shambolic status in faith of Jesus. He did not continue playing games with going to Jesus. It is your turn to go to Jesus now.

It doesn’t matter how you choose to go to Jesus but what matters is that you eventually make it to Jesus. I have seen people shying away from answering altar call because they don’t want people to mock them that they are saying yes to Jesus. One of the best decisions of my life was when I said YES to Jesus.

Your decision to give your life to Jesus without taking it back is a decision you can’t afford to downplay. Ask those that are enjoying Jesus today and you’ll not but wholly submit all your being without hesitation. Jesus is the way, the truth and life. Why not give Jesus back your life you once retrieved from Him and everything that concerns you will turn around for good in Jesus’ name.

The Way to Go

Bible Reading 

John 10:7

Then said Jesus into them again, Verily,verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep. 

Come to think of what the world is turning into and you will be wondering where things went wrong. A peep into daily news updates serves terrible tales of different evil happenings in the world. If it is not war, it will be political uprising or civil unrest. In all these, God remains God.

The way to go is not broad as everyone would want to believe. It is the way of salvation. Price must be paid and determination must fuel you effort while grace will divinely help the journey. Every believer is expected to be on this way as long as they have breath in them. Journey of salvation ends with glorious exit from this sinful world and not when you leave church service every Sunday. 

In John 14:6, Jesus reaffirmed His obligation of being the way to everyone. Knowing God must be through Jesus. If there is anyone that is claiming relationship with God without knowing Jesus, then something is missing and that which is missing is very costly. The price is not for you to incur because Jesus had already made payment with His blood. The way to go while seeking God is Jesus and I pray as you call on Jesus to come into your life today, you will live to become a living testimony in Jesus’ name.
