THE HUMAN MIND.

This is not an organ or something that can be physically seen or touched. It resides in the brain and manifestations of it include thoughts, emotion, memory, perception, imagination and so on; which are all activities that take place in the brain. Hence, the mind and brain are often used interchangeably, as will be inContinue reading “THE HUMAN MIND.”

MAINTAINING PURITY.

“Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God” Matthew 5:8. If there is anything God glorifies, it is purity. Little wonder why the Messiah came through the Virgin Mary…she had a level of purity that God could work with. Even as humans, we tend to incline more, towards people with pure hearts.Continue reading “MAINTAINING PURITY.”

ANGER.

It is not a sin to get angry. Jesus Himself, got upset in Matthew 21:12-13 when He saw the people buying and selling in the temple and extorting money from each other. His anger was permissible as it was because of the disrespect the people had towards God. However, in all of this, He managed the angerContinue reading “ANGER.”

PRIDE.

“Pride goes before destruction and a haughty spirit, before a fall” Proverbs 16:18. The end result of pride more often than not, is destruction. Why? Because it’s wired to work that way. A proud person is provocative to fellow humans and rejected by God. As I have said, one too many times, God would neverContinue reading “PRIDE.”

BLASPHEMY EXPLAINED.

The issue of blasphemy is one topic in the Bible that has been given multiple interpretations and has been a source of confusion to many Christians. When we read through the bible, we learn it is an unforgiveable sin (Matthew 12:31; Mark 3:27-29). However, that same bible tells us that the blood of Jesus blots awayContinue reading “BLASPHEMY EXPLAINED.”

WHAT CHRISTMAS IS ABOUT.

It’s that time of the year again and trees are decorated beautifully, carol songs are being blasted through the radios and most people are cooking up something tasty to eat. Though Jesus was not actually born on December 25, the day has been chosen to celebrate His birth. But what does this all mean? InContinue reading “WHAT CHRISTMAS IS ABOUT.”

5 TYPES OF PRAYERS YOU SHOULD NOT PRAY FROM THE NEW YEAR GOING FORWARD

Actually, you should stop praying these prayers from now. Christianity requires a lot of learning, relearning and unlearning. The bible tells us in Ephesians 4:23 and Romans 12:2 that we are to subject our minds to constant renewal by the Spirit. Formerly, some certain kinds of prayers were okay to pray but, in this dispensationContinue reading “5 TYPES OF PRAYERS YOU SHOULD NOT PRAY FROM THE NEW YEAR GOING FORWARD”

4 MISCONCEPTIONS THAT NEED TO BE CLEARED ABOUT BEING A CHRISTIAN.

“Thou shall not call the name of the Lord thy God in vain” Exodus 20:7. This is one of the commandments of God to the children of Israel and subsequently, every believer. However, over time especially in the area where I live, this statement has been misinterpreted over and over again. When I was aContinue reading “4 MISCONCEPTIONS THAT NEED TO BE CLEARED ABOUT BEING A CHRISTIAN.”

FOUR TIMES WE SEE A REFLECTION OF JESUS BEFORE THE NAME JESUS WAS EVEN MENTIONED.

For some weeks now, I have been studying a bible plan called “Jesus in all of Genesis” on Youversion Bible. It is centered on the times we see Jesus in the entire book of Genesis. This bible plan along with the Holy Spirit, have been a great inspiration to today’s post. When Isaac was aboutContinue reading “FOUR TIMES WE SEE A REFLECTION OF JESUS BEFORE THE NAME JESUS WAS EVEN MENTIONED.”

WHY ME?

So many times, we go through situations we cannot understand, we go through challenges that bring us to our knees and have us question God, “why me?” In several cases of believer-turned-atheist, such situations happen to have been the triggering factor. They experience hurtful things that lead them to conclude “there is no God” orContinue reading “WHY ME?”

THE POWER OF GOD II

As a follow up to last week’s post, I’d be sharing with you, more details about the power of God. If you are ever caught up in a negative situation, call on God. He has the power to turn the most negative situation into a positive one. He can bring out good from an entirelyContinue reading “THE POWER OF GOD II”

THE POWER OF GOD.

Sometimes, when we are not constantly reminded of a thing, we are likely to forget about it. In the type of world we live in now, we tend to be easily preoccupied with its challenges and pleasures that we forget the magnanimity of the power of God. This is a reminder to someone today thatContinue reading “THE POWER OF GOD.”

THINGS THAT GOD DOES NOT WANT YOU TO BE IGNORANT OF AS A BELIEVER.

When you live in ignorance, you live in darkness. The sole weakness of man is cluelessness. Clueless as to whether this new job is good for you, clueless of what your significant other is doing at the moment, clueless of your very tomorrow. And the devil has taken this as a leverage. He is onContinue reading “THINGS THAT GOD DOES NOT WANT YOU TO BE IGNORANT OF AS A BELIEVER.”

THE MAN BEHIND A GREAT EXODUS.

In case you don’t know, this man is Moses. One of the greatest Exoduses of all time was led by Moses. For several years, the Pharaoh of Egypt at that time, put God’s children through so much hardship. At God’s own appointed time, He raised Moses to be the one who would deliver His childrenContinue reading “THE MAN BEHIND A GREAT EXODUS.”

THE BOOK OF ESTHER.

This a study of the book of Esther…well, sort of. One key lesson in the book of Esther is purpose. When Haman, the king’s right-hand man, devised a plan (a wicked one at that) to wipe out the Jews; God’s people, Esther just happened to be queen at that moment (Esther 3). Esther had wantedContinue reading “THE BOOK OF ESTHER.”

FROM SHEPHERD BOY TO MIGHTY KING.

I want to remind someone out there that, just because the world or circumstances or ‘fate’ has written you off, does not mean God has written you off. David was by all means unqualified to be king. I mean, he was the last of 8 sons and he was not even a warrior, he wasContinue reading “FROM SHEPHERD BOY TO MIGHTY KING.”

TO LOVE OR TO HATE?

Text: Matthew 5:43-48 AMP. Love in this context (this post) does not refer to the emotion rather it refers to agape love, an unselfish love that seeks the best for others. The type Jesus has for you and I. This post comes as a reminder to us of the kind of love that our saviorContinue reading “TO LOVE OR TO HATE?”

GRACE IN COMPARISON WITH THE LAW

“Tell me why you are bent on being under the Law, do you not listen to what the Law really says”? (Galatians 4:21). This post comes as a follow up to the post of last two weeks on Grace. Whenever grace is mentioned, the Law is more than likely to be mentioned as well. So,Continue reading “GRACE IN COMPARISON WITH THE LAW”

THE POWER OF PRAISE.

HAPPY NEW MONTH EVERYONE, MAY THIS MONTH BE A MONTH FILLED WITH PRAISES TO GOD FROM YOU IN JESUS NAME. Not many people have even the slightest idea of how important it is to give praises to God. For so long, the power of praise has been underestimated. We place faith and prayer on highContinue reading “THE POWER OF PRAISE.”

TRIALS AND TOUGH TIMES.

“When things don’t go right, go left”, they say. But what happens when you’ve gone left and right and up and down but it all seems to be yielding the same result? I’ve got two answers for you, depending on your category. If you happen to be an unbeliever, your solution is Jesus. Everything isContinue reading “TRIALS AND TOUGH TIMES.”

…BE ANXIOUS FOR NOTHING…

DEALING WITH ANXIETY.     Everyone has anxiety at one point in time or the other. Take for example the feeling you get when you’re on your way to a job interview or going for an exam or even taking the opening speech for an upcoming event…that feeling of fear, eagerness or nervousness is anxiety. However, itContinue reading “…BE ANXIOUS FOR NOTHING…”

FAITH.

Happy new month everyone! I pray this month is filled with many blessings from God to you in Jesus name. For the past weeks, every article on this blog has made mention of the word faith. Even in church gatherings, from audio messages and the likes, the word faith is always reoccurring. Maybe you’re thinking ‘what is itContinue reading “FAITH.”

JESUS SAVES.

Salvation as we know it, is not just having our souls delivered from the eternal damnation it was set for. It means to be saved and a person can be saved from different things. However, the type of salvation found in Christ is not like that in the world. Jesus Christ saves and saves completely.Continue reading “JESUS SAVES.”

UNANSWERED PRAYERS.

Some days back, I had had a conversation with a friend who said she always felt as though God doesn’t answer her prayers. She said that when it came to the prayer requests like “wake me up tomorrow morning Lord as I sleep tonight” He answered but, when it came to others like “help meContinue reading “UNANSWERED PRAYERS.”
