There is a name above every other name.
That is the only name the Bible proudly boasts of, because the man with this name is the only one who shed His blood for us all on the cross.
He died a shameful death for man to be saved, yet we choose not to believe in His name.
That name is the first requirement to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. We just have to believe in His death and resurrection.
He is the bright morning star, the root and the offspring of David. There is power and authority in His name.
This name does not need fame to be powerful because all power and authority has been given unto Him.
He brought grace unto man so that we would have longer days, to repent from our ways so that we can join the race.
Bible said that at the mention of that name every knee shall bow, of things in the earth and things under the earth.
At the mention of the name, every other name such as POVERTY, WEAKNESS, FAILURE & DEFEAT will immediately disappear.
With faith backing the mention of the name, great things are bound to happen.
Beloved, that name is JESUS. The name Jesus, can be used against the devil, sickness, disease, and all adversities of life.
Do not just mention the name, have FAITH.
Now to those who do not know JESUS, He is the Son of God, the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, and above all, He died on the cross to save our souls from perishing.
Accept Him and give your life to Him before it is too late. He Loves You.
Share To Save Lives.
God Bless You.
Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord and the fruit of the womb is a reward. That fruit lies in a PRECIOUS PEARL who is of the Lord. It takes 9 months for a fruit to be nurtured in this pearl and it comes with pain.
The agony and pain quickly disappears after the coming of the fruit. That is when joy sets in, and that kind of joy is the one that made David dance till his cloth fell off.
This pearl is a MOTHER. The love a mother has for her fruit is as strong as death that many waters cannot quench nor can the floods drown it.
A mother’s work is never done, she always works from dawn to dusk and spreads her love to keep you warm.
If she was a superhero her name would be superwoman because in times of trouble she is always there to comfort and encourage.
Now to all Mothers, the warmth and kindness of your heart makes you more beautiful year after year. May God grant you grace and may He bless you according to the riches in Heaven.
HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!!! BONNE FETE DES MERES!!! FELIZ DIA DE LA MADRE!!! GELUKKIGE MOEDERDAY!!! SHONEN MUTTERTAG!!! FELIZ DIA DAS MAES!!!

A couple of friends passed by my home a few days ago, inviting me for a disco party in town. When I told them I was going for a church program, they laughed and quoted MATTHEW 22:21-… “RENDER TO CAESAR, WHAT BELONGS TO CAESAR, AND RENDER TO GOD WHAT BELONGS TO GOD.”
“My brother, you for do church small, then party too small. You be jonky kwraa too much”, which literally means: “If you do what is of the world, make sure you do what is of GOD as well.”IS THAT REALLY THE CASE???
This mentality is causing the fall of many Christians, since we fail to understand that the Bible also says that God will spit the lukewarm out of his mouth. As Christians, we have the Spirit of GOD living within us, and thereby have no excuse in misinterpreting scripture. It is highly unpardonable! The Holy Spirit within us serves as a teacher of the scripture. David acknowledged this fact and asked of the Spirit of God to open his eyes, so as to see wonderful things in his LAW! (PSALM 119:18)
WHAT THEN DOES THIS SCRIPTURE MEAN?
At the time of CHRIST’S Birth, CAESAR had issued a call to the Roman world that everyone be counted and properly taxed. As he enjoyed luxurious accommodations in his Roman palace, he hoped to demonstrate his own greatness before a watching world by publicizing the great number of people under his domain. And yet, in an unnoticed corner of CAESAR’S kingdom, in a simple stable, sleeping in a feeding trough, the SON OF GOD had come to show the glory of his Father.
Fortunately and unfortunately, the CAESAR the bible is talking about is right here with us as Christians. CAESAR IS THE FLESH that we live in. So when the Bible tells us to render to CAESAR the things that are CAESAR’S, it means that as human beings we physically need things like food and water to sustain CAESAR (THE FLESH) at all times. In as much as we cater for CAESER though, the Bible also makes us aware that we should also give to God the things that are GOD’S. Activities such as PRAYER, FASTING and the study of THE WORD OF GOD are essential in the sustenance of the spirit man in us. These things connect us to God, and help in building a strong relationship with him. Our worship, obedience, steadfastness, love, temperance, self-control… also counts in the sacrifice we offer to GOD.
Don’t jump into conclusion though. CAESAR also needs to be catered for because, if CAESAR (the flesh) is weak, how can one fellowship properly with GOD?
As humans, the flesh tries to overcome the Spirit by certain desires. However, by our constant fellowship with God, we shall stand firm in the face of all these trials and temptations. It is very much expedient to know that, all of life, including all of CAESER’S (the Flesh) rights and power belong to GOD. It is then that you will be in the proper frame of mind to render to CAESAR what belongs to him. When you admit that all is GOD’S then anything you render to CAESAR, you will render for GOD’S sake.
LET’S BE SPIRIT-FILLED,
BECAUSE CAESAR IS HERE WITH US!!!!!!!!!!
The definition of SUCCESS can be found in the Bible. It is rather unfortunate that the entire public now refer to success as the possession of material things such as money, cars,houses, etc. As Christians we have a measure of success and this can be found in Ephesians 4:13…”till we all come to the unity f the faith and of the knowledge of the son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ”. A successful Christian is one who can compare himself to the fullness of Christ.
Rules For Success
- Read the Word of God (Hebrews 4:12)
- Pray without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:17)
- Fast and Pray (1 Corinthians 7:5)
- Be a soul winner (Proverbs 11:30)
- Hear and Obey the voice of God (1 Samuel 3:10)
- Know your purpose on earth (Romans 8:28)
- Renew your mind and be Spirit-led (Romans 12:2)
- Do the will of God (2 Corinthians 8:5)
- Abstain from sin and be Holy (1 Thessalonians 5:22-23)
- Give to the poor and needy (Hebrews 13:16)
Beloved, these things if we do would make us get to the measure and stature of Christ. Then we can say that we are successful. God Bless You.
Mindset is a set of assumptions, methods, or notions held by one or more people or a group of people that is so established that, it creates a powerful incentive within these people or groups to continue to adopt or accept prior behaviors or choices.
Ones mindset can determine how he speaks, how he lives day to day and more importantly, where God stands in relationship with oneself.
As Christians, we need a particular mindset that would keep our faith in Christ moving. Christ who is our example as Christians, had a positive and renewed mindset (Philippians 2:5). This should encourage us to have a positive mindset in whatever we do.
Ones mindset can cause a weak or strong faith in Christ. That is why the bible admonished us in Romans 12:2 to be transformed by the renewing of our mind before we can be able to prove what is good and the acceptable perfect will of God.
Lets rise up and seek to renew our minds for the good of ourselves and the kingdom. God Bless You.
Not long ago, I saw a group of old men with pot bellies having a foot training around. Just after they where all done, I saw one of them seriously still working out. I quickly received an inspiration from that.
There are two kinds of Christians; those that have a personal relationship with God and those who do not. Those who do not are the ones who just go to church and think its enough for them and they can be likened to the men who stopped working out. The one who continued is the type of Christian who has a very strong personal relationship with God.
This is the kind of Christian God wants us to be, not just church goers but Believers who would have constant relationship with Him.
Lets desire to go far with God and He would also go far with us. God bless you.
Christ has given every Christian who has accepted Him the power to preach His good Gospel, yet still people do not want to share this Good news. These are the three reasons why people do not share the Gospel of Christ.
- Lack of scriptural understanding
- Absence of Love. Watch out for more.
