A NEW BREED (the ORIGINALS)

Posted: August 31, 2013 in Uncategorized

Sometimes I wonder what it really means to be new. The book of wisdom says in 1 corinthians5:17 makes us understand that being new is being in Christ. Cause when you are in christ you no longer operate as an human being ,you begin to operate as a spiritual being full of the spirit of truth, strange to the WORLD and filled with the WORD.
You begin to operate as a new citizen, in a new economy,in a new country free from the unnecessary hardship the world has placed on you. As a new creature you are a special person before God.
Practically,new things are always distinguished. You can always tell when a girl is on a new hairdo same goes for a new dress& a new shoe , not just by looking @ hair but also the way she makes it so noticeable….unlike an old hairdo that she will make sure she covers with something. Put urself in the position of a new hairdo and Christ as the girl…. Christ has you and he wants you to manifest…dats y he made it clear to us that ‘a city set on the hill can’t be hidden’
The only difference between you and a new dress,hairdo,or shoe is that a time will come when they will all become old and will need a replacement. But it not so for you that’s in Christ!!. If Jesus Christ is in you today…and He is the same yesterday, today and forever more(hebrews 13:8) then you if you become new today, it’s d same tomorrow and forever more!!
For those of us very conversant with season movies. You should have heard of “VAMPIRE DIARIES”. Yeah right. You should also know that vampire pass vampire. You should also know that there is a special breed of vampires called the ORIGINALS. Why are they called so… (Now just see yourself as vampire) So long they continue to feed on blood (ur source of life is the blood of Christ) they remain ever young. Infact, they don’t die no matter what…they always come back to life not even ‘vervain’ can kill them( Rom8:35-39 AMP) . The only way they can be killed is when a dagger is driven into their heart ( that dagger represent SIN/UNHOLINESS not being able to abide by the rules set by the Blood which is your source). It doesn’t end there o…the dagger also has to remain in their heart, cause the moment it is driven out….and they feed on blood…they become as new as ever…(The moment we let go of SIN, and we go back to our source ,John3:16 & 1corinthians5:17 happens)
We all should know that it irritates God to see daggers in our hearts…its just like a maize farmer coming to farm and finiding his maize feasting wiv d birds….
Give it a deep thought…make a decision today…to be new and remain new in christ… A friend once said…
A lot of ppl dnt understand that “righteousness” is knowing&believing the rules and “holiness” is abiding by the rules…. If it wasn’t possible to be righteous and holy…then God wouldn’t have asked us to…… You can only be more than a conqueror when Christ is involved…& when He is not you are less than a looser!
Finallly as Paul said.. “friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse”……..

MULTIPLY!!!

Posted: August 30, 2013 in Uncategorized

Multiplication is synonymous to increment
Now let’s look at these mathematically. A figure only increases when It is multiplied with other numbers than ‘0s’ and ‘1s’
Look at yourself as a figure.
Let’s take 3 as an example
3×3=9 (an increment of 6)
3×1=3 (no increment/stagnancy)
3×0=0 (a decrease to nothing)
Most of us have decided to settle down and multiply with ‘1s’ and ‘0s’.
We say we are christians but we are actually compromised and lukewarm.
We are like farmers sowing seed among thorns; the seed grows but is choked up…and reduced to litlle or nothing.
We are comfortable with being lukewarm..making God so sad and dissappointed
We are supposed to be Christ-like. Christ was a reflection of Gods glory and an expression of the person and image of God. We should also be the reflection of the glory of Christ and the expression of His image.
We should quit moving with ‘0s’ n ‘1’ because with them, multiplication is meaningless, ineffective, it’s like pouring water into a basket.
1s n 0s could be cheating, pride, laziness, waywardness, indiscipline, disobedience, deceit, and a host of others we both know….they all strangle our connection with our creator

Be fruitful and multiply, mortify your deed, follow peace with all men and holiness without which no man can see God.
Mix up with ‘figures’ that would make you mature and increase in christ.
As paul said…phil 4:8

Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse. Put into practice what you learned from me, what you heard and saw and realized. Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies.

teen agers

The Energetic Empowered Natural Age-group God is Ever Ready to Save.

Teenagers, probably more than any other age group, are a study in contradictions. While its natural for adults to stereotype them in different ways (lazy,smart,energetic, or disrespectful, just to name but a few) , teens as a segment of the overall population are also very different.
Someone was said *the teenage age is the most peculiar and unstable age*
The question most parents ask is “are today’s teenagers spiritual or unspritual”. There is obviously not an easy answer. In fact, the answers one would get would be as varied as the number of people asked
Many sources of information paint a picture of teenagers as a whole being deeply religious and having integrated the christian faith into the fabric of their lifestyles. You have heard such events as:
– true love waits
– see me at the pole
– christian clubs in schools and other signs of either revival or spiritual awakening among them
A nationwide survey of teenagers from all works of life by a well known “christian sociologist , titled the THE THIRD MILLENIUM TEENS”, suggest that the christian faith is pretty much a subjective area in the lives of most teenagers. It is simply one of the many parts of life that blend into the total experience of adolescence. Unfortunately, neither teenage behaviour nor beliefs at least according to the surveys report, support the notion that this age group as a whole is deeply spiritual or truly committed to the christian faith
What next? The need to be connected to the source that matters, source that produces good life “the living water”
Psalm1vs3- and he/she shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his/her fruit in his seasons; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he doeth shall prosper”. This spelt out the four blessings of the righteous teens not the wicked teen.
-The righteous – like the tree planted, cultivated, and well watered; not like one growing wild in the field
– The wicked- like the chaff that blows away and scorn perishes
The emphasis is on teens who live to fufil the purpose in life for which God created him/her. Rev4:11 God created us all for His pleasure.
A righteous teen will:
1. Delights in the word of God (ps119:9)
2. Medidates in it day and night (josh 1:8)
3. Consecrates to obey it – seperate from the world and join unto God
4. Makes it his rule of life and conduct (Josh 1:22-27)
5. Makes it his standard of faith and religion (2 tim 3:16-173
6. Reads it to gain knowledge and wisdom ( rev1:3, eph5:4)
7. Feeds on it to grow spiritually ( 1pet2:1-3 ; rom10:17)

see who mocked GOD

Posted: August 30, 2013 in Uncategorized

SEE WHO MOCKED GOD:

John Lennon (Singer):

Some years ago, during his interview with an American Magazine, he said:
‘Christianity will end, it will disappear.
I do not have to argue about that.. I am certain.
Jesus was ok, but his subjects were too simple, today we are more famous than Him’ (1966).

Lennon, after saying that the Beatles were more famous than Jesus Christ, was shot six times.

Tancredo Neves (President of Brazil ):

During the Presidential campaign, he said if he got 500,000 votes from his party, not even God would remove him from Presidency.

Sure he got the votes, but he got sick a day before his inauguration as President and he died.

Cazuza (Bi-sexual Brazilian composer, singer and poet):

During A show in Canecio ( Rio de Janeiro ),
while smoking his cigarette, he puffed out some smoke into the air and said:
‘God, that’s for you.’

He died at the age of 32 of LUNG CANCER in a horrible manner.

The man who built the Titanic

After the construction of the Cruise Ship, Titanic, a reporter asked him how safe the Titanic would be.

With an ironic tone he said:
‘Not even God can sink it’

The result: I think you all know what happened to the Titanic

Marilyn Monroe (Actress)

She was visited by Billy Graham during a presentation of a show.

He said the Spirit of God had sent him to preach to her.
After hearing what the Preacher had to say, she said: ‘I don’t need your Jesus’.
A week later, she was found dead in her apartment

Bon Scott (Singer)

The ex-vocalist of the AC/DC. On one of his 1979 songs he sang:
‘Don’t stop me; I’m going down all the way, down the highway to hell’.

On the 19th of February 1980, Bon Scott was found dead, he had been choked by his own vomit.

Campinas (IN 2005)

In Campinas , Brazil, a group of friends, drunk, went to pick up a friend…..

The mother accompanied her to the car and was so worried about the drunkenness of her friends and she said to the daughter holding her hand, who was already seated in the car:

‘My Daughter, Go With God And May He Protect You.’
She responded: ‘Only If He (God) Travels In The Trunk, ‘Cause Inside Here…..It’s Already Full ‘

Hours later, news came that they had been involved in a fatal accident, everyone had died.
The car could not be recognized what type of car it had been, but surprisingly, the trunk was intact.
The police said there was no way the trunk could have remained intact.
To their surprise, inside the trunk was a crate of eggs, none was broken

Christine Hewitt (Jamaican Journalist and entertainer) said the Bible (Word of God) was the worst book ever written.
In June 2006 she was found burnt beyond recognition in her motor vehicle.

Many more important people have forgotten that there is no other name that was given so much authority as the name of Jesus.

Many have died, but only Jesus died and rose again, and he is still alive….

OMO IGBO & MOMSI

Posted: August 29, 2013 in Uncategorized

“If. I ever, ever ,like ever see you with that guy
again, you can’t even imagine what I’ll do with
you, mstchewww…. Omode o mefo o n pe
lewe!”
The last phrase is proverb from where I come from meaning (
)
I just couldn’t stand it anymore, for crying out loud, what is wrong with ELVIS JOHNSON. My mom won’t just let me be. Have heard that last statement like a hundred and one times already! What’s with my mom and igbo guys.
The same thing with Henry,John,Rapheal and now Elvis. Is it my fault that I keep ending up with them. Don’t you think, she should leave me alone to make my own decision (and maybe my own mistakes too).

My mother . She is such a sweet woman, selfless personality and beautiful character. But you know there is this thing with mothers and the kinda protection they give their children, female children especially. My mom has three pretty girls more or less WOMEN. Even if she has little or no time for herself and her girls. She doesn’t joke with their relationship and emotional life. She doesn’t joke with them when it comes to MEN,GUYS,BOYS. Whenever she wants to refer to the male person that she is pleased with…she calls him MAN. In her words ” that man worked relentlessly and God was always on his side, he is a responsible man”
and then, when it comes to one that pisses her off, she’ll say ” deola u know you must stay clear of that guy, he is no good for you. He has no prospect”. My mom is such a character.
And then when it is one that is totally irresponsible to her…lol…I remember a scenerio… My friend came over…he was on *carrot jeans*, a body hug and then he was on a nice gold neck chain….in a nutshell he was looking so cool…full of swags (according to me tho)….and then while we were gisting…momsi walked in…gave him a head to toe look as he stood up to greet her “good evening ma”…and then my heart almost jumped out. But you know what, she just replied him..”Good evening” with a straight face…she sat down for a while…watched tv… And right there in my mind I was praying she wouldn’t ask further questions…like “what’s your name”..(Error) but den my prayers weren’t answered.
“What is your name” mom asked. And of course he said “Nonso”. And dat was it…she didn’t ask further questions. As soon as he left… The next question she asked was ” deola, isn’t dat one of those street boys”. ” Mummy, he is not a streetboy, he is a friend” I replied. N all she could say was “hunhmm k o!!”

I love the fact that I have a lovely mother who will not stop checking on him….buh I dnt like d fact that she is trying all she can to make sure I don’t end up with an IGBO GUY.
Just the other day, I was seeing a documentary, “the secret” and then a quote was mentioned- “what you resist will persist”…and then I thought of it….
I kinda agree with that..cause she keeps resisting them…and they keep persisting..
Adesewa, my cute lil sis wasn’t left out o. She is just 10yrs old. And she just got promoted to JSS2. Guess what? Right from when she was in pry 1…most of her classmates, I mean the ones she liked talking about to my mom & 1, had names like chigozie,chinedu,nnena, nnamdi,amaka,chidi….infact there was one of them, they always wait together 4 their mum 2 pick them up after school hours, his name was buchi.
My mom didn’t take things personal then…probably because she thought we weren’t that sensitive.. But now she wouldn’t allow such.
One evening, I got a bombshell from my lil sis, desewa. “Sister mi, I wanna discuss something with you” ….hmmm my mind went straight to the thoughts of her looking for trouble again in school with that her *razor blade tongue* and she is scared of going back to school tomorrow. That’s the discussion my sister will always bring to my table…as if I’m the 1 that sent her to run her mouth about in school. Anyways…it was a bombshell… My 10 going on 11 yrs old kid sis…already has a toaster…as in ” the boy is cute, and he keeps telling me he likes me a lot and wants me to be a special person to him” sister mi, iono wat 2 do o…wat do you think he is insinuating”
& I plainly told her, maybe he wants a relationship. Talking about dat, I remembered my mom & her iSsue with Igbo guys. And then I asked ” what’s d name of this boy sef?”
“His name is victor anyanwu” she replied.
Oopsy….my mom is probably gonna have a heart attack if she gets 2 know this. *anyanwu ke* now this is a bigger error!……….
To Be Continued.

THAT UGLY BEAUTY

Posted: August 29, 2013 in Uncategorized

At first sight
In the deep dark night
He was shinning so bright
His eyes, his lips, and then his height
Am crazy about the way he looks @ me
Those looks won’t just let me be
Right there, by his side, is where I wanna be
But something keeps preventing me
The problem is I have not been able to find out what it is
Once, I heard him talk about me
“She has an ugly beauty”
Hearing that, gave my heart a terrible injury
I wondered what kinda beauty can be ugly
I consulted my friends immediately
They made me understand that he hates my beauty
What!!! How can that be
I talked to my mom about it and she said
” That man is no good for you, so don’t even worry about it”
Really, that even got me more worried
In my curiousity, I stole his diary.
And den I stumbled on something
Once he died on d cross of calvary
Cause he was sorry 4 d sins of many
And so in order to call them into His glory
He gave out his life, so amazing!
Suddenly, I felt something like ice running thru my veins
It was like there was a sudden pause in my brain
My eyes were beginning to rain
The words in my mouth got drained
He caught me red-handed,
And then he said
“Relax, I know what you have read
I know exactly what’s going on in your head
You’ve been puzzled about what you heard
Your friends and mom, they claim to know me
They’ve heard a lot conflicting stories about me
They also heard me say things about them
But they didn’t care to know who I am to them
Probably to them, am just history
They know my name, but they don’t know my words neither do they know what it means
But you are different…you saw me in your darkness and you recognised me
You don’t know my name, but you recognised my words
When I say you’ve got an “ugly beauty”
It doesn’t mean you are ugly, neither does it mean you are pretty
It simply means you are lost in a journey though you have the maps
You have everything it takes to walk out of darkness, but you still can’t find your way out
Same goes 4 ur mum and friends
Anyway I am always available to answer your questions
To teach you how to make use of that map
To completely bring you out of that dark tunnel
Though you have tried getting close to me…and it seems like you are farther
It is because of the SINS…that you just can’t let go of
Those *sins* that you have given authority over your life…
Just rely on me…I can help you let go of all of them
And you’ll be closer than ever
That’s why I am called
The Horn of salvation
The author of salvation
The rock of offence
The sanctifier and healer
The Burden bearer
The resurrection & life
Light of life
Word of life
Bread of life
Prince of life
The Alpha and Omega
Now that you know my name
It is a Strong Tower
Make sure you are in it every hour”…… Christ Jesus speaking to every heart!!!
