DO YOU KNOW THAT JESUS TRULY LOVES YOU?

Do you know that Jesus really and truly loves you? It was His love for you that made Him to take the painful way of the cross. So that by dying and shedding His own holy and precious blood on the cross, you would be reconciled to God your Father and obtain forgiveness for your sins and be saved. (Colossians 1:19-23; 2:13-15)

What a love! What a true love!

YOUR NEW LIFE NOW!

Please, give your life to Jesus today and experience a newness of life. You will be a different person. According to 2 Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!”

Your old life with its condemnation and punishment has truly passed away. While your sanctified new life, set apart for godly purposes has begun with its enviable testimonies as soon as you receive Jesus as your personal Lord and Saviour.

I have prayed for you. Watch out for God’s miracles in your life, business and family as you give your life to Jesus today. Shalom!

“YOUR MONEY OR YOUR LIFE”?

From our monthly news letter Sep-Oct. 2018

A gang of robbers broke into a multi millionair’s house, and at gun point fiercely demanded, “Your money or your life.” Within a space of 3 secondes, the man quickly responded with great fear of losing his life and his family, “Please, my life! My life! My life!” He said with a vibrating but flinchy tone.
He went straight to his inner chamber and drew out a box filled up with thousands of naira, a few pounds and dollars and willingly and respectfully handed it over to the robbers who zoomed off with immediate effect. The man knelt down with his entire family and thanked God for their life.

WHY DID HE CHOOSE HIS LIFE OVER HIS MONEY?

It could be for the follwing reasons;

1) Life is most valuable than wealth
2) When life is lost, it can’t be earned back here on earth
3) With life, more money could earned and much wealth could be created
4) He realized that losing his life and probably his entire family means losing everything out of foolishness
5 He also may have come to realize that earthly wealth does not last and not worth dying for

He was wise enough to make a wise and positive decision at that critical moment of his life. I have heard of a few cases of some other persons who found themselves in a similar situation, but made a foolish and terrible negative decision of holding to their valuables and eventually lost their lives. They gambled with their only one earthly life and lost it. Their foolish greed cost them their very promising lives. they lost  it all.

King Solomon wrote: “Anyone who is among the living has hope -even a live dog is better off than a dead lion!” (Ecclesiastes 9:4 NIV)

In other words, a living outcast is far better off than a dead king. That places a high value on life than anything else among men. No one in a real sense naturally wants to die, even you and I..

WHAT CAN YOU LOSE YOUR LIFE TO GET?

Money? Brings pleasure and comfort but fizzles out

Fame? Gratifies the body, feels good but Fizzles out

Wealth? Gratifies the body, brings pleasure, comfort but dwindles away

Power? Makes proud, respected. revered but degenerates and transfers

Women? Pleasurable, but gets old and dies

Alchol? Sweet, pleasurable, intoxicates and kills

Drugs? Hypnotizes, fake boost, Intoxicates and kills

Christ? Gives life, saves life and gives every good thing + everlasting life.

Everybody is naturally careful of not losing their lives because life is sweet and beautiful. But you will be amazed to realize how fast we are losing our precious and promising lives to so many worthless things. Many have willingly lost their lives to this world, to money, fame, drugs, women, power, etc. And not for Christ..
Did you read that? “AND NOT FOR CHRIST!” WHY? We will look at this in a few paragraphs ahead.

The robbers who stand at the highway or break into peoples’ houses have actually lost their lives to the money they go after. They could be apprehended, imprisoned or executed. A cultist loses his/her life to possible danger of sudden death resulting from show of might and supremacy over rivals. A fighter loses his/her life to unpredictable injuries. A quarrelsome person loses her/his life to shame and disrespect. A gossip loses her/his life to unfriendliness and lonliness. A thief loses his/her life to disgrace and indefinite restrictions. The list goes on. And finally here is the ultimate loss. HEAVEN!
Don’t lose heaven because you lost your life to earthly treasures.

What are you losing your life to right now? Does it really worth it?
Money
Wealth
Fame
Power
Women
Alchol
Drugs
Etc.

Nothing on earth is worth losing your life to, no matter what are, or what they are meant for,  except Christ, Him crucified for your redemption, and what add values to human life and brings glory God. Outside of this, nothing absolutely worths it. You too think about..

GETTING IT AT ALL COST

When you choose to get anything out of this life AT ALL COST, not minding the possible adverse effect it will have on people around you, yourself and how displeasing it is to God your Maker, you have lost your soul to this life and to hell.  Getting something at all cost simply means you don’t bloody care about how it gets into your hands, or what or who is affected.

Don’t lose your promising life to gain this world’s wealth, fame and power that dissapears and is no more like a vapor. But lose your life to get that which lasts for eternity.

And Jesus queried, “What shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
(Mark 8:36-37 KJV)
What you can you give to replace your soul? Nothing!

CHOOSE TO LOSE YOUR LIFE FOR CHRIST!

Don’t you ever make the mistake of losing your life for earthly things. It is foolishness in the highest order and it will cost you your real life (eternal life). Lose your life to gain Christ, and for the sake of the gospel. That will give you real life (eternal life) in return.

Here lies the irony, we are everly ready to lose our money to keep our physical life going, like the man we disccussed about at the beginning of this article, but we are not ready to lose our money or our earthly life to gain Christ and  eternal life.
And Jesus said in Mark gospel 8:34-37 “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. 35 For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me and for the gospel will save it. 36 What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? 37 Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul?

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO LOSE YOUR LIFE FOR CHRIST 

Losing your life for Christ means choosing Him over anything in your life. It means to seek Him first before any other thing. It means your life being patterned and modeled by Him and molded in Him. It means saying goodby to worldly life. To lose your life for Christ means doing everything for His sake and glory. To lose your life Christ means to deny yourself, pick up your cross (cares and responsibility) and follow Him. To lose your life for Christ means doing everything for His own sake and reverence.

When you choose to lose your life for Christ, you will have no room to accommodate ungodly activities and immoral lifestyles.

PALESTINIAN PASTOR RECALLS PERSONAL ENCOUNTER WITH JESUS THAT LED HIM TO REPENT OF HATRED FOR JEWS

Steve Warren

Bassam Adranly was born a Palestinian and grew up in the Greek Orthodox Christian tradition.  

In a recent interview with Revive Live, he says he often criticized Jews. While in his 20s and attending a university in Tel Aviv, he turned to atheism.

In 1995, he says he had a personal encounter with Jesus Christ that turned his life around. 

“Every night I was dreaming of Him, all night through,” Adranly says. “Going with Him and His disciples everywhere. … and all day through, I couldn’t get His words out of my mind.”

Adranly said at the time he had a hatred of Jews like many other Palestinians. 

“I was wrestling with this and I knew it was wrong. So I gave myself to the Lord to change it,” he told the television program. 

Adranly said God touched his heart and his prejudice was gone. 

Today, he is an Arab-Christian living in Israel and pastors a congregation in the city center of Jerusalem.

“The Lord showed me very clearly that nationality is not something I receive. It’s not something that I just take from my old life,” Adranly explained.  “The Word of God in 2 Corinthians 5:17 says ‘Who is in Christ is a new creation. Old things have passed away,” and it includes our nationality. So we have to come to the Lord and ask to receive from him what he wants to teach (me) about my nationality, about my people.”

GOD’S INFALLIBLE WORD- WRITTEN FOR US (PART 1)

Revelation 1:19

Habakkuk 2: put it in writing…

GOD’S OWN DESIGN

Though God speaks to us through various ways, but our focus here is the Holy Bible, the written revelation of God, which reveals the origin of all things. It reveals how it all began and how it will definitely going to end. That’s why the LORD remains the First and the Last. (Isaiah 48:12, Revelation 1:17)
In another occasion the Lord said, “I am the Alpha and Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.”

God personally designed Biblical medium of communication for the people He has made to occupy the earth, so that one generation to the next will have access to it.

As a written word, it could be easily pass from one generation to another, unlike when it is orally passed. Non is exempted from this plan.
An earthly father will always communicate with his children about one thing or the other when the need arises. It is through this communication that the father’s desire for the children will be made known to them. Through this communication the father uncovers his wealth of experiences, knowledge and wisdom, principles, plans, and promises to the children as they had never experienced in life. It could come as warning, teaching, admonition, discipline, scolding, rebuke, blessing, promises, assignment and so on. It is all for the purpose to help escape failure and become successful, happy and fulfilled in life.

The children in turn will through this conversation understand what their father wants from them, what they should avoid, what they should hold on to, what plans their father has for their future, how he has provided for them and how much he is willing to care and support them at any moment in their life.

That is exactly what God designed the Holy Bible to accomplish between Him and us as a Father and sons and daughters in a big family with eternity in focus.
All He wants us to know about Him as our only true Father is written in His Holy Book. As the Omniscient God who sees and knows the end from the very beginning, He had known all you need to know about Him, and had written them down for you and I. I had known how many footsteps you are going take in life to step into your abundance. He knows where success lies for you and where it does not. That’s why He has a specific Word for everyone He has made. He has a personal message for you hidden in His Book. It’s duty to search it out.
It is written in God’s Book that, “it is pleasure to conceal a matter, but it is your duty to find it out. (Proverb?

YOUR PLACEMENT IN THE WORD

Everyone of His children including you, has something written for them in The Holy Bible.
The early you discover yours, the faster you will fulfill your destiny and purpose of being created.

Of Christ it is written, “Then I said, ‘Here I am- it is written about me in the scroll-(Scripture) I have come to do your will, O God.'”

And to Nebuchadnezzar it was said, “this is what is decreed (Spoken) for you….” Daniel 4:31

Concerning pharaoh God said, “But I have raised you up for this very purpose, that I might show you my power and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth.” Exodus 9:16

Then it is generally said about everyone in Psalm 25:12 “Who, then, is the man that fears the Lord?
He will instruct him in the way chosen for him.”

Do you know what is written about you in God’s Word? Remember, the Bible is a book of relationship between God and you. It is the book of the everlasting covenant between us and God. It is the everlasting evidence of God’s faithfulness. It is a proof that God is your Father, and you are His son or daughter. It is a proof that God cannot lie to you.
And Balaam declares to Balak that summoned him to place a curse on God’s people, “God is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man that He should change His mind Numbers 23:19

Like I already stated above, “The Bible is the book of covenant between us and God.” It will pay you more to get to understand what your Creator has reserved for you in this Book, than having millions of dollars. When you know it, then you can earn an during wealth and success that lasts.
