THE SICK CHURCH

IMG_20170818_200607_716

Pain, agony, discomfort, emergencies,the rush and sometimes wailing for losing a loved one, that particular stench that romances the air, sight of blood, sorry looking faces and yet cries of joy for the new born babies, smiles that lit the faces of those who escaped death by the care, love and antidotes they received in there…the hospital versus the church!!!
Jesus speaking in Mark 2:17 said… they that are whole have no need for physician,but they that are sick…
So just as the sick runs to the hospital to seek the help of the physician so also many sick folks run to church to seek for divine healing and health from the greatest physician – Jesus!
Have you not wondered why the church that’s suppose to be a holy ground and a mount where there’s deliverance; still harbours many who are sick spiritually,sick in their attitude/character, sick in their relationships,sick in their finances, sick in their family life and marriages, sick in their careers,some mentally sick and much!!!
I have seen and heard of fornication among the youths,adultery among the married(more shocking,among ordained workers), back biting, slander, betrayal of trust,malice keeping, many as such happening in the church and you wonder, is this the church?!
If you have come to ask yourself this question, and you are struggling with your faith in God, thinking of wether to stay in church or leave,then you need to know that the church is much more like an hospital and that we have a lot of patients the great physician is attending to.

Matthew 11:28 says come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest…this is why you see all manner in church.
Obadiah 1:17 says but upon mount Zion shall be deliverance, and there shall be holiness; and the house of Jacob shall possess their possessions. and Matthew 9:35 says… And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.
All this patients are provided with and have direct access to divine healing and divine health but yet a lot of them lay sick in the church just like the man at the pool of Bathsaida.
This sick folks in church have consciously or unconsciously refused to access healing for their ailling soul!
They have refused to take their daily dosage(the word) that is able to heal and keep healthy! Psalms 107:20 says… He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.
They have refused to exercise their spirit man (1 Timothy 4:8 For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things…) by praying,fasting and practicing covenant demands for health such as righteous living, loving others and letting go of strife and so on.
You see, until the sick ones are shown love by others in the church,they may remain sick forever and until they personally and consciously access health packages in scriptures and fully walk in the knowledge of it, their sickness will be recurrent!
The church is sick!
The church needs healing!
There are so many prescriptions for total health in the bible. The church must pick its bible,open it and eat it(study and meditate on it) and beginning to live like Jesus who was healthy spirit,soul and body and who went about doing good,healing all that was oppressed of the devil instead of the ones infecting the world with sickness!
Let the church be mount Zion, let it be a place where the balm in Gilead is fully operational.
The church is you.
Are you whole or sick?!
Jesus is the healer!
Jesus is Lord!

Who are you?!

Treason!

Flesh torn apart, blood squirting out, the pain- so unbearable! The lacerations created by the whiplash- so bloody! The crown of thorns pierced his already bleeding scalp. In pain, they still mocked him, shouting- crucify him! crucify him!! crucify him!!!

They did crucify him!…but if only they had known, they wouldn’t have crucified him…

You see friends, you need not be bad before people attack you, betray you, conspire against you,mock you, crucify you or even kill you!

Jesus, our perfect example,In whom there was no sin found! He was blameless! Remember, the Holy scriptures stated that he went about doing good and healing all that were oppressed of the devil (Acts 10:38). Yet, His own people (His very own people,the Jews) hated Him and sought to kill him. I mean to kill Him!

So they began to seek for faults in him and you know – when you begin to seek faults, you will definately find one-atleast the one that lies in the wickedness of your heart that makes you see everything as a fault!

See the faults they cooked up against Jesus:

 

# Matthew 26:59 stated that- Now the chief priests, and elders, and all the council, sought false witness against Jesus, to put him to death; 26:60 But found none: yea, though many false witnesses came, yet found they none. At the last came two false witnesses,

26:61 And said, This fellow said, I am able to destroy the temple of God, and to build it in three days.

26:62 And the high priest arose, and said unto him, Answerest thou nothing? what is it which these witness against thee?

26:63 But Jesus held his peace. And the high priest answered and said unto him, I adjure thee by the living God, that thou tell us whether thou be the Christ, the Son of God. 26:64 Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.

26:65 Then the high priest rent his clothes, saying, He hath spoken blasphemy; what further need have we of witnesses? behold, now ye have heard his blasphemy.

26:66 What think ye? They answered and said, He is guilty of death.

 

#Luke 23:2 And they began to accuse him, saying, We found this fellow perverting the nation, and forbidding to give tribute to Caesar, saying that he himself is Christ a King.

#Luke 23:5 And they were the more fierce, saying, He stirreth up the people, teaching throughout all Jewry, beginning from Galilee to this place.

 

You will also notice that they also accused him of healing on the sabbath day- an offense they say its against their law. They also accuse him of mingling with sinners. Can you imagine that!

 

Jesus actually said the temple would be brought down and rebuilt in 3 days but because they lacked understanding they assumed he spoke of the physical temple but he spoke of his body that will die and ressurect on the third day! Foolish men-their hearts were covered and blinded by hate!

Jesus actually sat with sinners because He came for the sick and not for those who are whole! Yet, these men where blinded with hate! they couldnt see it!

When Jesus stopped them from stonning to death the adulterous woman, i strongly believe they must have recovenned somewhere to say he supports wrongdoing. What a generation of vipers!

Can you imagine this men been angry because Jesus healed on the sabbath day? which is more important- the miracle or the sabbath law!
What about Judas Iscariot?! What did Jesus ever do to him. For him to be a treaurer,Jesus must have trusted him. Yet, he betrayed His master. Treason!
What of Peter, who swore to be with Jesus even till death?! He denied Jesus at the time Jesus needed him the most!Treason!
So, you see?!
Even if you are Jesus,blameless and you go about doing good, men will still seek for your fall!

If you have found yourself in such betrayal, attacks and loneliness, fret not! There will always be a revival.

See what 1 Corinthians 2:8 says-  Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.

If your enemies had known, they wouldn’t have dared to touch you! See what lies in wait for them;
#Psalms 35:4 says-Let them be confounded and put to shame that seek after my soul: let them be turned back and brought to confusion that devise my hurt.
35:5 Let them be as chaff before the wind: and let the angel of the LORD chase them.
35:6 Let their way be dark and slippery: and let the angel of the LORD persecute them.
35:7 For without cause have they hid for me their net in a pit, which without cause they have digged for my soul.
Psalms 132:18a says – His enemies will I clothe with shame…
Isaiah 54:15 Behold, they shall surely gather together, but not by me: whosoever shall gather together against thee shall fall for thy sake…
…this is just a few among many promises of God against your enemies!
For you, see what God has in stock for you even amidst crisis!
Jeremiah 1:19 says- And they shall fight against thee; but they shall not prevail against thee; for I am with thee, saith the LORD, to deliver thee.
Luke 21:13 And it shall turn to you for a testimony.
Psalms 105:14 He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea, he reproved kings for their sakes; 105:15 Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.
Zechariah 2:8 For thus saith the LORD of hosts; After the glory hath he sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye.
Isaiah 49:24 Shall the prey be taken from the mighty, or the lawful captive delivered?
49:25 But thus saith the LORD, Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered: for I will contend with him that contendeth with thee, and I will save thy children.
49:26 And I will feed them that oppress thee with their own flesh; and they shall be drunken with their own blood, as with sweet wine: and all flesh shall know that I the LORD am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob.
These are just few scriptures among many others to assure you of victory.
Remember Daniel? they conspire against him but the lion ended up eating them and their household.
Remember Mordecai?! Haman led him on a royal horse and announced him as a man the king honored and Haman was hanged on the same gallow he prepared for Mordecai and the Jew.
Remember Proverbs 26:27 says Whoso diggeth a pit shall fall therein: and he that rolleth a stone, it will return upon him.
Remember Joseph?! his own brothers desired to kill him and ended up selling him into slavery but they eventually came bowing to him and he became their saviour!
This is will be your story in Jesus name.
Just like Mordecai, you will be remembered and enthroned in Jesus name!
Just like Daniel, those lions around you will not be able to touch you!
Whatsoever the enemy has stolen from you will be restored in Jesus name!
Congratulations!!!
Today is the expiry date to that issue!

CHURCH ROMANCE

IMG_20170711_214726_620.JPGIt was a cold rainy nightfall…

It was so cold!
Warmth is all you will crave for and desire strongly…
Daisy just ran into the house all wet. Shivering!
She needed warmth!
It was an ungodly hour-long into the night.
It was Jone’s apartment.
It was dark.
The candle was litted!
The beverage was out of stock! even the tea!
She needed warmth!
She was dry but still shivering!
Jones drew her closer! into his arms…
…cuddled and fondled!
…and BOOM!!!
Bro Jones- the youth church leader.
Sis. Daisy- the music director.
Hmmmm!!!
Like it never happened!                        The next morning; at sunday service,      Daisy led other saints in worship to God. Folks on their knees, weeping and broken in worship.

IMG_20170711_214659_055.JPG

After the service, Jones addresses the youths on keeping their body as a living sacrifice. A charge he must give because of the Pastor’s plea with the youth to stop such scandals in church.                     Like it never happened!                         But it did! continually. They were trapped in this ungodly romance; a church romance they must keep a secret!

Who will deliver them from this body of sin?!

Many Born again, holy ghost filled,tongue speaking and fire breathing brethren are trapped in sexual immorality.
Their strong sincere desire to be freed is marred by the oath of secrecy they have sworn to keep in silence because of their deep commitment in kingdom service-a satanic deception!
You sure know- sin thrives and grows in secret. Secrecy is the yeast of sin.

John 3:20 says
For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed.

The fear of impending shame, disgrace and possible stigmatization by men hinders many from confessing their sin to a pastor or a confidant. Hitherto, the one time fall becomes a strong hold and continues secretly, robbing them of their relationship with God and their glory.
Proverbs 28:13 says he who covereth his sins shall not prosper
You must also understand that there’s nothing done in the dark that will not come to the light.

Jeremiah 16:17 says
For My eyes are on all their ways; they are not hidden from My face, nor is their iniquity concealed from My eyes.

An old hymn says ; you may cover your sins that no man should know but you can not hide it from God.
Brethren! it’s time we come out of that darkness, out of that slavery and chains into light, freedom and break free into our God ordained glory.
Decide to let the cat out of the bag today! Now!
Remember, if we confess our sin he is faithful and just to forgive us,to cleanse us from all unrighteousness!
After doing this, we must find a confidant(someone who has a testimony of haven won same fight or overcame and still standing) and share with him/her about our shortfalls-we become accountable to someone.
Listen! if you are not accountable to any one, then you are on a speed lane to destruction.
If you have done this, then you must make a decision to stay away from the magnetic field of sin.
Remember you must work out your salvation with fear and trembling (Phil.2:12).
Stop leading that sister/ brother on!
Stop visiting that brother/sister alone at ungodly hours!
Stop unnecessary flirting and flattering!
Stop touching the opposite sex in their most sensitive areas in the name of civilization.
Put on Jesus (constantly soak yourself in the word, talk to him daily and keep the right company) so you don’t fulfil the lust of the flesh.
Mind what you feed your mind with through your eyes and your ears!
Your body is the temple(church) of the Lord- this church romance must stop!
Stop defiling the church.

BLOODLINE

IMG_20170703_181208_126.JPGThe offspring of an eagle will always be an eagle! The offspring of a lion will always be a lion! An eagle can not birth a vulture neither can a lion birth a goat!
As humans, our bloodline determine our nation,language, race,skin colour, looks,character traits,social class,religion and so on. All these tend to place limitations to who we are, our self worth and confidence.
The challenge here is that a lot of people have desired or wished they are of a particular bloodline rather than theirs! What a total ignorance of who you are, a ‘mind blindness’ of your origin and the purpose for which you are of your bloodline!

Are you asking what is a bloodline?!
Bloodline is your ancestral line, your lineage, genealogy…
…you will by default (to a large extent) enjoy what your ancestors enjoy and suffer what they suffer except you come to the knowledge of the need to change your bloodline.
What?! Change my bloodline?! How’s that possible?!
Before we discuss that, let’s first refresh our minds on the fact that a bloodline of promiscuous, corrupt, thieves, liars, cheats and all sort of bad stuff will produce an improved breed of same. Haven’t you heard of families where their children die before they get to a particular age? Where the ladies get married very late or never get pregnant or get divorced if they eventually get married? What about a generation where there’s has never been an individual who got wealthy and so on?!
There’s a need for a change of bloodline!!!

Let’s take at a look at the bloodline of king David.
Beginning with his grandmother Rahab. She was a harlot who was rescued and eventually married a Jew. Jesse, his father might have laid with a prostitute to bear David as the Bible didn’t say much of David’s mum and David himself had mention in Psalm 51:5 NASV-Behold I was brought forth in iniquity and in sin my mother conceived me.”
David down d line also committed adultery and killed Uriah to later marry Bathsheba who begat Solomon.
Solomon down the line began to exhibit the spirit of whoredom; married 300 strange women and had 700 strange concubines.
Beside Solomon, do you know that
David’s first son Amnon raped his half-sister Tamar ( 2 Samuel 13:1-4 ).
His third son, Absalom arranged the murder/execution of Amnon in retaliation for the rape of his sister Tamar. At the height of his revolt, Absalom raped David’s concubines on the roof of the palace for all of Israel to witness ( 2 Samuel 16:20-23 ).
Hmmm! What a shame! It just like scripture says in Exodus 20:5- You shall not worship them or serve them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, on the third and the fourth generations of those who hate Me.
It will amaze you to know that David is the fourth generation from Rahab!
No wonder in Luke 12:2, 3 – Jesus’ words thers can basically be interpreted to mean our secret sins will be shouted from the rooftops through the actions of our children.

We all have ancestors who lived in iniquity and we will continue to suffer what they suffered, until we change our bloodline.
Are you getting anxious and asking loudly, HOW?!!

IMG_20170703_181126_866

Jesus!
Jesus! Yes, Jesus!
He came out of the bloodline of Jesse but changed everything and broke the generational curse!
Jesus’ blood is blameless and the purest bloodline that carries no infirmity or generational iniquity!
His blood has no trace of any sickness,disease, pain ,suffering, poverty, lack, want, bondage of whatever sort. This is the bloodline you Must belong to.
1 Peter 1:19 says- But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:
Revelation 5:9b says-for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;
For it is by this blood we can enter into a new covenant where we are cleansed from all forms of iniquities and infirmities!
You need a blood transfusion!
What?! A blood transfusion?
Yes!!!

IMG_20170703_181346_773
If you have not accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and personal savior- you are still operating in your bloodline and you will eventually and continue to suffer what your ancestors suffered (some unknown to you but at work in you already, others yet to come) but you can put an end to all this by accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and personal saviour!
The moment you accept him, the blood shed on the cross of Calvary is transfused into you and your bloodline changes automatically and the new and better life begins!

If you like to accept him, simply pray this prayer after me; Say-
Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner. I know you died for me on the cross of Calvary for the salvation of my soul. Today, I accept you as my Lord and personal savior. Write my name in the book of life and help me live a righteous life henceforth. Thank you Jesus, I am born again!
Congratulations! You belong to the bloodline of Jesus now and the siege is ended!
Find a Bible believing church and keep the faith!
Welcome to the family.

Jesus is Lord!

Wounded!

68299104-wounded-heart
A young virgin raped by a man whose brain is in between his thighs…she becomes wounded and react and see all men as beast; thus ending up lonely and sad. Until she’s healed of this wound, she can never love and be loved.

…a child who grew up with abusive parents,parents who fight each other, shout and beat the children at slightest provocation…this child becomes wounded and sees drama n choas as a normal state of mind. Such a child will create choas and drama where there’s none; as it is like oxygen to them. Causing pain to others without remorse .

…it is said that broken home produces broken children but I tell you the truth- broken homes produces wounded children. This children will never trust any one and until they are healed of this wound ,they won’t be able to sustain relationships, even in marriages.

…a child that has been verbally abused and talked down at becomes wounded and loses self confidence and self image; withdrawing self into solitary- hurting self and others who loves them.

…people who have long waited for a particular thing they have so desired and it seems not to be coming as they desire become wounded n begin to envy others who are so blessed and become threatened by such. Until they get healed, they might never be able to take delivery of God’s blessings.

IMG_20170629_120035_381

This wound is beyond physical lacerations or an injury that is caused when a knife, bullet etc., cuts or breaks the skin. It is much more deeper-
It is a feeling of sadness, anger, etc., that is caused by something bad that has happened to you. It is a mental or emotional hurt that troubles the mind, leaving you emotionally bankrupt, a societal misfit, a trouble shooter n a loner!

This is a wounded heart that is hurting and causes others pain. People who are wounded, react to and treat people in equal proportion to the pain they feel within.

Only true love can heal this wound without a scar.
This true love is God.
God is the healer.
For you to know,have and walk with this God, you must get digging deep into his words (the Holy Bible).
Deep in there, you will find words as balm, balms with inscription such as…
…I am the Lord that healeth thee…
…is there no balm in Gilead?…
…by His stripes you are healed…
…I will restore health unto you and heal thy wounds…and so many more!

Get digging, get healed and begin to live life as ordained by God!
Be happy! Make the world around you a happy one.

The wounded is now healed!

Jesus heals!
