THE EASIEST WAY TO COMMIT MURDER

 

How many people have you murdered? Think about it for a minute. You see, I was in church on Wednesday and the topic was “20 Reasons Why You Must Win Souls.” Lately, it has been soul winning season in my church here in Ibadan and we are being encouraged daily to go out and speak to someone about Jesus and then invite the person to church afterwards. The reason for the invitation is simple. You do not just leave people like that after preaching Jesus to them. You take them to church so they can be taught and trained on how to walk the Christ walk.

So, how does all of this talk relate to murder? This is simple. After the sermon, I discovered a particular scripture as I was going through my sermon note that night. Now, I would like to say at this point that we should try to make conscious efforts to reread our sermon notes. Most believers do not do this and in not doing this, we miss out on a whole lot of details that God would have loved for us to know for ourselves.

So, as I was saying before the digression, I came across Ezekiel chapter three verse eighteen to nineteen and it was an experience for me. I got to understand just how easy it was to murder a person. You really do not need a gun or a cutlass. All you have to do to become an official murderer in the sight of God is hold back the message of Christ. Yeah, it is that easy. The not-so-good part is that God is going to make demands about that soul from you. What will you tell Him? What excuse will you give Him? That you were too ashamed of preaching Christ? That you did not want to be laughed at or seen as being a Jesus freak? That you were way too shy to talk to strangers? So, you sat back and watched them die. Really, these excuses will hold no weight in the face of murder charges before the Judge Himself.

Here is what Ezekiel chapter three says: [18] If I say to the wicked, ‘you are going to die,’ and you don’t sound the alarm warning them that it is a matter of life and death, they will die and it will be your fault. I’ll hold you responsible. [19] But if you warn the wicked and they keep right on sinning anyway, they’ll most certainly die for their sin, but you won’t die. You’ll have saved your life (MSG version). This is the word of God to you today. Stop murdering people and just preach Christ to them. Let the Holy Spirit do the rest. If they listen, give God all the glory. If they do not listen, give God all the glory all the same because you would have done your part. Come what may, preach Christ by all means.

I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth, to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

Romans 1:16

COURAGEOUS

Happy New Year to you all and yes, I really love the movie ‘courageous,’ hence the post title.

2018 is here and it is such a pregnant year. However, only men of courage would be able to harness all the goodies 2018 holds for them. And by goodies, I mean promises that God has shown you and whispered into your ears – whispers of exceeding greatness.  You see, men of courage are people who have learnt to listen for the voice of God and follow through with what He has said without considering the consequences or the circumstances staring at them squarely in the face.

And so, Abraham heard the voice of the Lord say to him, “Leave your country, your family, and your father’s home for a land that I will show you and I will make you a great nation and bless you. And I will make you famous; you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you and curse those who curse you. All the families of the Earth will be blessed through you.” You know what? Abraham did obey God and moved to a place he had absolutely no idea of.  It was clearly stated in scriptures that it was a land that God WILL show him, meaning he had never seen the land, heard of the land or been to the land before that time. But yet, that courageous man followed the leading of God by faith and today, we see the result of Abraham’s obedience. All the promises of God came to pass in his life and we are beneficiaries of that great promise.

Abraham has shown us how to bring about the manifestation of the promises of God over our lives – OBEDIENCE BY FAITH. We have to walk the path of courageous people to see the promises of God come to pass in our lives. It is not going to be easy. It is not always easy to leave your comfort zone and everything you are familiar with for a totally strange place. It was not easy for Abraham as well. Abraham was afraid but still, he obeyed God regardless of the fear and uncertainty.  I know that Abraham was afraid because we see him lying about his wife being his sister because of fear. You see, that is more than enough proof that he was a man like us.

What is God saying to you at the moment? What has He instructed you to do? By all means, do it. At the other end of your obedience is the great manifestation of all that He has spoken to you in that secret place. Do not hesitate and do not hold back. Be COURAGEOUS. Courageous people aren’t exactly people who have no fear. Rather, they are people who act despite the fear. Do not let fear rob you of all that God has in store for you.

I do hope this blessed you. Once again, Happy Happy New Year. It is a wowsome thing to be alive today. I mean, the Earth has completed another revolution round the sun. Is God amazing or is He amazing? He is amazing. 2017 is over and out. Welcome to 2018.

NOVEMBER GIFT

IMG-20170930-WA0001

Hi People! Welcome to the month of November and even if it is the 4th day in the 11th month of the year 2017, I am still saying Happy New month to y’all. I also bring you a special package along with my wishes and it is called “The Gift of Words.” It is a poem written by the phenomenal and multi-talented lady-engineer, Ajoke Asunmonu.

I really do hope that the words of the poem will bless your heart and make you see the Grace of God in a brand new perspective. So, Ladies and Gentlemen, I bring you the poem titled “FILTH

I am the pleasure of your emotions;
The sweet smelling savour that tingles your nostrils;
I run rampage through your nerves like urges,
Yes, but truth is I am a careless danfo.
I am the beautiful exposure of that awesome body;
Behind the mini;
For these skirts are way too short to house your figure; 
I must flaunt it.
I am the putrid smell that sends your senses high like Juana;
But you have never known Mari; 
Yet I make you long for her skin,
And cause your loins to run rampage; 
I am the dump you lie in,
waiting for the light to dawn on you and break my shackles; 
I did silently hope that that day will never come, 
But alas! You caught a glimpse of him.
—————————————————————-
*My name was filth* 
I was bent, to the earth,
Blended with iniquity’s dirt. 
I was sentenced to hell;
For my stains and unwashable stench.
Then I bent beneath the cross;
And his blood on my filth poured; 
I rejoiced when my name he called;
The price is paid, your filth is purged!!!
But he was wounded for our transgressions…(Isaiah 53:5)
