Rapture! Religious Fear Or Reality?

rapture image

The desire to keep up with the changing face of our earthly existence ; food on the table, settling the bills, meeting up mortgage payments, keeping our career on track, has beclouded our minds of the transitory nature of our presence on the earth! It is only when there is crisis that we stop awhile to recount our steps and reflect on our true relationship with the Heavenly Host. The modern church has relegated the topic to the background and prefer topics that keep their congregation electrified and wanting more from the preachers – whose speech charisma has overshadowed holiness and righteousness. The modern worshipper want to hear about prosperity and not repentance; longevity not rapture! For them, let Jesus Christ tarry awhile before embarking on the second journey. At least, let them enjoy their own portion of the earth abundance before going to heaven or hell! Some could careless because of the affliction they have been subjected to on earth.

God looks Inside & Outside

Yvonne Phillips Eteng

The time has come for this often misconstrued doctrine to be put in its proper perspective. Many Ministers of God are often heard saying to their congregation that God does not look at your outward appearance, but what is inside of you! The resulting effect of this statement is what you see in the churches today, worldly attributes right on the altar of the Most High. God at the beginning of your life before conversion does not bother with your appearance, because you are immersed in sin and worldly lifestyle. In his eyes you are full of filth and covered in cow dung, iniquity is your passport. Satan, your master does not allow you to see the filth, because you would run to where you would be washed with fuller soap and purged with hyssop! (Psalm 51:7-19). That is the lives of billions of people living on this earth today.

You Are A Star And Not A Grain

Stars of the heavens

It takes the special grace of God to become a star of the heavens. What is so unique about being a star instead of a grain of sand on the sea shore, you may well ask? Stars are special because of their ability to radiate light that cannot be hidden. While grains of sand are trampled on; sand provides soft cushion to walk upon. In the book of Genesis 22:17, God saw the obedience of Abraham when he instructed him to go and sacrifice Isaac and he obeyed. God was so touched by Abraham’s obedience that he vowed to bless him and multiply his descendants as the stars of heaven and the sand of the sea shore.

Why Is God Not Answering Me?

Prayer Mountain, Abuja

There I was in 2012, lost in thoughts and wondering what next to do to get out of the situation I suddenly found myself wallowing in! The Ministry was epileptic, not that it was standing in a specific location; what I found myself doing was more of getting divine messages for people and either visiting them or relating it on phone to them. It was as if God was testing me to see the level of submission and obedience to his word. For the last two quarters of 2011, I was on regular errands for my Father in Heaven. There was this particular elderly man who had cheated me out of a transaction that was to accelerate me to a princely nine figure sum. His promise to make up for his actions in another transaction did not materialize, so I erased him out of my subconscious to ease my pain. Continue reading Why Is God Not Answering Me?

God Speaks On Nigeria

Here is the word of God to the messenger this day.
Nigeria shall witness a wind of glory never ever known by man. The scepter of him who is and is to come is stretched over the entire country. Let those be warned that are the architects of trouble and evil, for their days are numbered. The chaff in a couple of days from now will be blown over and the grains shall settle at the bottom of the basin. Let those who have ears hear what the Spirit of God is saying. For the words are not those of man, but the select of the Lord. Continue reading God Speaks On Nigeria

WHO IS THE HOLY GHOST?

Jesus Christ before the ascension into heaven, told his disciples that it was to their advantage that he returned to Heaven, for it was only then the Father can send down the Counsellor to them. One may be tempted to ask what the role of the Counsellor is to us as Christians. (John 16:7)

What do we understand as being a Counsellor? It is a person who by privilege of knowledge, education or experience is in a unique position to advice, guide and help you achieve the desired results in life. In secondary schools, they are known as Career Counsellors. Usually, their jobs are to advise students in the junior secondary what subjects to select to follow a certain career in life. This is often based on the academic performance of the individual concerned; the counsellor uses the subjects’ grade to advice on career choice. Ultimately, the aim is for you to pass your ‘O’ level exams based on the subject you often excel. In the Church, the Counsellor is the Pastor or his assistant. He is there for your spiritual guidance, whenever you experience abnormal situations you can not ordinarily explain. He usually set aside his counselling days for people to bring their problems to him. Continue reading WHO IS THE HOLY GHOST?
