Don’t Call 911; Let go!!! In genuine REPENTANCE

They were not estranged from their lust. But while their meat was yet in their mouths, Ps 78:30

But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death. Jas.1:14,15

For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever. 1Jo.2:16,17

 

Foolishness

Foolishness

?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????Foolishness is a great and grave tragedy and it is not following the sayings of Jesus. – Enahoro Francis Ovienmhada

And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it. Mat.7:26-27

Sure Foundation

Those who build their spiritual foundation and sets dirt (man, prophet or denomination) between the foundation and the Rock will surely meet with failure. – Enahoro Francis Ovienmhada

It cost much more to come down from the cross than to stay on. – Enahoro Francis Ovienmhada

Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.Heb.12:2

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.Rm.12:1

Down Payment

Down Payment

The Book of Acts of the Holy Spirit, which was but a down payment, must be fully lived, then we can demand the full payment. – Enahoro Francis Ovienmhada

 

Christianity Today!!!

Christianity Today

If what Christianity is today, is Christianity, then it is the broadway that leads to destruction and not the narrow way that leads to life – Enahoro Francis Ovienmhada

“Christians claim to love God but do not obey Him. They claim to hate the devil but obey him” – Unknown

Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? Rom.6:16

Christianity today, if it is is not marked  by Love and Meekness which are the keys to the kingdom of God, then it is nothing but playing church. Do we truly love God with all our heart and mind? God demands us to love and God is love. Meekness relates to obedience and being domesticated before God. If we are not operating in love and obedience, then our christianity is vain and we are a vain worshipers.

He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked. 1Jn.2:6

Christianity today must line up with Apostolic Christianity.  The Apostles were not complacent and their focus was to do the will and purpose of God and many were martyred for Jesus. Christianity today appears to be prosperity centered. The building of large magnificent cathedrals, buying of airplanes and chains of expensive cars are the norms.

The Church needs to go back to the preaching of true repentance, the consequence of sin, the blood and the cross, heaven and hell. Sin should be called sin and not my some fancy name. Homosexuality is called an abomination by God but today, to be politically correct it is called an alternate lifestyle.

The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. 2Pet.3:9

Song and hymns that talk about total surrender, the blood and following Jesus, have been discarded in favor of rhythmic music and Rock ‘n roll is in the church today.

We need to heed the great commission and seek and save the lost, heal the sick and get back on mission fields that have long been abandoned.

Who is on YHVH’s side?  Are we servants of God or servants of the Devil? We cannot straddle the fence.

 

Modern and Luxury toilet compared to to toilets in the mission field.

For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. Rom.8:18.

November 11th. A young man bridges the wall between East and West Berlin.Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? Rm.6:16

Then Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said, Who is on the LORD’S side? let him come unto me. And all the sons of Levi gathered themselves together unto him. Exo.32:26

Who Is On The Lord’s Side
Who is on the Lord’s side
I really want to know
I am on the Lord’s side
As long as I live
As long as I live
I am on the Lord’s side. Nigerian song
