THE SUBSTITUTE!

      He was running very fast, panting and hoping he escape the angry mob chasing him. He was caught in the act, but managed to run out of their hands and they kept running after him. He looked back and saw that those running after him had cutlasses, swords, some carrying fuel along with them while other carried tyre, obviously they were determined to burn him as soon as they catch him. Soon, he became tired, his speed began to reduce. 
  Suddenly, a man wearing a white garment dragged him into a corner. The man exchanged his white garment for his red clothes, and they both got out of the corner. They could not recognise him anymore, they passed him and chased the man that exchanged his clothes, they caught up with him and beat him to death. He cried as he watched the man taking his place, going through the punishment he should have gone through, and ultimately dying the death he would have died.
  Beloved, that was JESUS CHRIST. That was what HE did for you and me. HE gave us HIS garment of righteousness and wore our garment of sin. So, the law could no longer recognise us as the culprit, but took HIM as the culprit(because HE was wearing our garments of sin), and gave HIM the punishment that could have been given to us~Isaiah53:5. HE was bruised, HE was beaten with the  Roman stripes, they put a crown of thorns on HIS head and so on, and ultimately, they crucified HIM. I hope you can see as the nails made way through HIS palms. I hope you can see as blood spills at every whip of the Roman stripes. All this because HE loves us and wants us free.
  The moment you wore the garment of righteousness, the law could no longer recognise you, because it only recognises sin~Romans3:20. But you are no longer under the law, but under grace(Romans6:14), because the grace of JESUS CHRIST has made you free from the law of sin and death~Romans8:2. So you are set free…….JESUS CHRIST had taken the guilt, the shame, the punishment and ultimately, the death, on your behalf. Now you are free…… You are forever free……..All you need do is to believe it. If you believe it, you won’t need to be running away from those(satan) chasing you again, because you are no longer the one he should be chasing. So, if you believe, then stop running for satan, and you will realise he can’t come near you nor accuse for anything. You will find out that he kept chasing you cause you kept running.
If you believe, why not prayer this short prayer with faith in your heart;
LORD JESUS, I BELIEVE YOU TOOK MY GARMENT OF SIN AND CLOTHE ME WITH YOUR GARMENT OF RIGHTEOUSNESS. I BELIEVE YOU TOOK MY GUILT, MY SHAME, MY PUNISHMENTS AND ULTIMATELY, YOU TOOK MY DEATH AND GAVE ME YOUR LIFE OF FREEDOM. THANK YOU FOR SAVING ME. NOW I BELIEVE I AM FREE FROM THE POWER OF SIN AND DEATH, IN JESUS NAME…..Amen.

THE JOURNEY OF RIGHTEOUSNESS (2)

  Righteousness is not an achievement, it is a process. It is not what you achieve like a certificate, it is what you keep craving for all life through, it has no end-point. It called walk of righteousness. Righteousness is not an impossible task, it is satan that makes it look as if it is impossible. If only we can study the true meaning of righteousness and meditate on it very well, we will find out that living a life of righteousness is not difficult. The word righteousness comes out of the root-word “RIGHT”. So righteousness is all about living right. The suffix “teousness” after the word “right” is the art of living right.


  Therefore, righteousness means the art of living right before GOD. When you do things that are right, then you are living a life of righteousness, and when you do things that are not right, you are living a life of unrighteousness (which I also call WRONGTEOUSNESS). So, it is the devil that makes righteousness looks so big and difficult for man. GOD said; “Be ye Holy, as I am Holy~1Peter1:16”. It will take a wicked father to tell his children to do what they do not have the ability to do. So, for GOD to tell us to be Holy, it means HE knows that we have the ability to be Holy. The moment we became saved, we are enabled to live a righteous life. So, we have the ability to live a life of righteousness, that is why GOD is telling us to be Holy as HE is Holy.
  We will round up here on Wisdom Bank today, join us again as we continue to travel on the JOURNEY OF RIGHTEOUSNESS. But go with these truths; YOU ARE MADE RIGHTEOUS THE DAY YOU GOT SAVED, BUT YOU MUST GROW IN RIGHTEOUSNESS BY HAVING A CONSCIOUS WALK WITH GOD DAILY. BY SO DOING, LIVING A LIFE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS WONT BE DIFFICULT…BE WISE…!!!

THE JOURNEY OF RIGHTEOUSNESS(1)

‚Äč  

 Righteousness is not a state, it is a walk. It is not an attainment, it is a continuous exercise. Once righteous does not mean always righteous, because everyday is loaded with temptations that can fall the so-called righteous person. So, there is need to always exercise ourselves in righteousness~1Timothy4:7. That is why when JESUS taught the disciples to pray, one of the lines HE gave them to pray is; “Lead us not into temptations, but deliver us from evil”. This is because JESUS knows that temptations will come and evil will come everyday that can make HIS disciples (everyone following JESUS CHRIST) to fall.

  GOD told Abraham, HE said; walk before(with) me and be perfect~Genesis17:1. So perfection(or righteousness) requires a daily walk with GOD. In other words, when you stop walking with GOD, you start losing your righteousness. When your prayer time start reducing, when the time you study the word of GOD starts reducing, when you begin to have other events to attend when it’s time to attend church service, when your soul-winning reduces, it automatically means you are no longer walking with GOD. At such times, check your life, you will notice you are no longer walking with GOD, and you will notice are already doing so many unrighteousness things and having excuses(that seems tenable) to back up the things you do. 
  That is how far we will go Wisdom Bank today, do join us tomorrow as we continue to travel on the JOURNEY OF RIGHTEOUSNESS. But go with these; YOU DO NOT HAVE THE POWER TO SAVE YOURSELF, NEITHER DO YOU HAVE THE POWER TO REMAIN SAVED. IT ALL REQUIRES THE GRACE OF GOD WHICH WE MUCH SEEK DAILY…BE WISE…!!!

PRINCIPLES OF EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION(6)

  Everything about relationship is communication and everything about communication is relationship. In other words, there is no way you can run a relationship without communication, and there is  no way you can communicate without being a form of relationship. In a relationship, you cannot do without communication, because it is needed in every part of it. When you are happy, you communicate it to your partner, when you are angry you communicate it to your partner, when you need attention, you communicate it, when you need privacy, you communicate it, when you need to enforce discipline, you communicate it. Everything in a relationship is about communication. 
  That is why we are taking time out to study about communication in a relationship and to study about various dimensions to communication. In previous weeks, by the help of the Holy Ghost, we have been able to study about some dimensions to communication such as; WORDS, BODY LANGUAGES, AND TONE OF VOICE. Today, by the help of the Holy Spirit, we shall study another dimension to communication, which is;


4. READING AND WRITING; Sometimes, I think about this, and desire to ask lovers, especially the married ones; Please, what happened to the day you used to write each love letters to each other? What happened to the days you will compose love notes or rack jokes and put in his or her wallet or purse? Think far back to the joy you both derived from writing love notes and jokes to eachother, and think about the joy you derived from receiving love notes and jokes from eachother. This is a very mighty dimension to communication, because it bolsters joy. Think about this; If your woman is not so happy with you, and you compose a love note or jokes and secretly put it in her purse, when she is going to work. When she gets to work and sees it, no matter how angry she is with you, she will smile and think of how loving you are. The same applies to the woman to the man.
  One other benefit of writing is that it helps to clear anger. This is one thing I have learnt very early in life and am introducing to you. Do you know that if you are angry and pick up a pen and a paper and pour out all your anger by writing it down in a paper, do you know that you will feel very light, and no more angry? Yes, it is true, if you have never tried it before, try it the next time you are angry. So, instead of pouring out all your anger on your woman, or on your man, pour it out on the pages of paper first, and you will find out that when you see her or him, you won’t have anymore anger to pour out, but you will settle things amicably with her or him. But make sure you tear off the paper immediately. Don’t keep record of evil.
  Wisdom Bank will round up here today. Join us next weekend as we continue to explore the principles of effective communication. But go with this; COMMUNICATION IS THE MOST ESSENTIAL TOOL IN A RELATIONSHIP OR MARRIAGE, BUT THERE ARE SEVERAL DIMENSIONS TO COMMUNICATION WHICH HELP TO BOLSTER JOY AND STRENGTHEN RELATIONSHIP OR MARRIAGE. SO, CAREFULLY STUDY THE ONES HIGHLIGHTED IN THIS SERIES…BE WISE…!!!

SALVATION FOR ALL

 


“Therefore, if any man…………2Corinthians5:17”

  If we reflect on the scriptures above, we will discover that GOD does not discriminate, HE wants everyone to be saved, no matter who the person is, and wherever the person comes from. 
  HE said; “IF ANY MAN……ANY MAN……ANY MAN, i mean GOD said; IF ANY MAN…..be it black or white, bond or free, short or tall, believer or unbeliever. It does not matter who or what you are, SALVATION IS FOR YOU. It doesn’t matter what you have done in the past or what you are doing now, what matters is that you won’t do them again. It doesn’t matter if you are a murderer and how many people you have killed, it doesn’t matter if you are into prostitution and how many men you have slept with, it doesn’t if you are a rapist and how many ladies you have raped, it doesn’t matter if you are into drugs and how many kilograms you have taken, it doesn’t matter if you are a fraud and how many people you have defrauded. Are you are sorcerer? An idol worshipper? Whatever it is that you have done. Please listen, Salvation is not for any other, BUT FOR YOU.
  The scriptures says; JESUS CHRIST did not come because of the righteous, HE came because of sinners~Luke5:32. The main reason why JESUS came to this world is because of me and you, I mean you that is reading this. So that HE can carry all your sinful past on HIMSELF and give you HIS righteousness. The scriptures also say; For GOD so love the world……John3:16. This means, no matter who you are, or what you have done, as long as you are in the world, GOD LOVES YOU, and does not want you to perish, that is why HE has given you HIS only begotten son.
  GOD is not interested in judging your past, rather, HE is interested in justifying your present and making you have a justified future. If only you can be in CHRIST, GOD will eternally forget about your past, no matter what you have done. The Holy Spirit magnified this scriptures to me, HE said; Old things are past away, no matter what it is, behold(Behoooooooooold, please scream this with me Behoooooooooold; it means see, see, see, see), all things(NOT SOME THINGS), all things are become new(2Corinthians5:17).GOD is telling you to see, see, see, HE is beckoning on you to see(Behoooooooooold) that HE has made everything to be new for you. HE didn’t say behold, some things have become new, HE said; Seeeeeeeeeeeee…….All things, everything, name it, whatever it is, everything are become new for you. 
  So, GOD does not discriminates, it is not about what you have done. HE is call anyone, as in, everyone, including you.
  But there is one condition; YOU MUST ACCEPT JESUS AND BE IN CHRIST, BEFORE YOU CAN EXPERIENCE THIS NEW LIFE I AM INTRODUCING TO YOU. IF YOU WILL LIKE TO DO THAT, JUST SAY THIS LITTLE PRAYER AND BELIEVE IT FROM THE DEPTH OF YOUR HEART;  
LORD JESUS, I KNOW I AM A SINNER AND DO NOT HAVE THE ABILITY TO SAVE MYSELF. I ACCEPT YOU AS MY LORD AND SAVIOUR. I THANK YOU FOR TAKING MY SINS AND GIVING ME YOUR RIGHTEOUSNESS, THEREBY SAVING ME FROM THE HORRORS OF SIN, AND MAKING ALL THINGS NEW FOR ME. NOW I KNOW I AM SAVED, NOW I KNOW I AM IN CHRIST JESUS….Amen.

PRINCIPLES OF EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION (5)

  Communication is the ability to accurately transfer the thoughts and ideas in your mind into the mind of the other person without creating a scene. But to be able to do that, you must know the ways in which the thoughts and ideas in your mind can be transferred into the mind of the other person, otherwise, there will be friction. The reason why lovers quarrel and even break up most times is not because they do not love each other. If we do a research about it, we will find out that most break-up in relationships or marriages is not because they do not love each other, but because they are not wise enough to know how to transfer the thoughts in their minds into the mind of their lovers.

  This means there is need for each person in the relationship to study to know how to communicate effectively with his or her lover. He or she must study him or her to know the right words, right timing and right attitude to communicate with him or her that will not turn him or her off. It is in this wise we have been discussing the different dimensions to communication. By the help of the Holy Spirit, we have been able to discuss some dimensions to communication, such as WORDS and BODY LANGUAGE. Today, we shall discuss other dimensions to communication. 
3. TONE OF VOICE; The tone of voice carries the weight of the words. Sometimes, a person may be saying the right words, but the tone in which him or her is saying those words are filled with anger that stirs up strive, and result in turmoil. But no matter how angry you are, if you let your anger go down before you say anything, you will find out that you will say those words pleasantly, and you will win the heart of the person listening to you. That is why the scriptures says; A word fitly spoken and in due season is like apples of gold in settings of silver~Proverbs25:11(Amplified Version). Fitly spoken words appease the heart.


  The way we reply in communication is also very important, especially in marriage. When the man(or the woman) comes with a harsh tone of voice and the woman(or the man) also reply with a harsh tone of voice, it is certain that there will be no peace in that relationship or marriage. But when the man(or the woman) comes with a harsh tone of voice and the woman(or the man) reply with a cool and calming tone, the man(or woman), if sensible, will calm down, and there will be peace in that relationship or marriage. That is why the scriptures says; A SOFT answer turns away wrath, but grievous words stir up ange~Proverbs15:1(Amplified Version). Soft replies does not make you a fool, neither does it take anything away from you, rather it shows that you are a true lover of peace and you are wiser.
  That is how far we will go today on the relationship segment of Wisdom Bank, do join us again next weekend, as we continue to explore the principles of effective communication. But go with this truth; THE REASON WHY THEIR IS ALWAYS LOUD TONE OF VOICE DURING COMMUNICATION IS DUE TO THE CLAIMS OF BEING RIGHT OR WRONG. PLEASE NOTE THIS, RELATIONSHIP OR MARRIAGE IS NOT A COURT OF LAW, WHERE THEY LOOK FOR WHO IS RIGHT OR WRONG. ALL THAT MATTERS IN RELATIONSHIP IS JOY AND PEACE. THEREFORE, LET US STOP CLAIMING TO BE RIGHT BUT ALWAYS TAKE STEPS TO ENSURE THINGS GO WELL…BE WISE…!!!

NO MATTER HOW GRAVY YOUR SINS, GOD WILL FORGIVE YOU.

    There is no sin GOD cannot forgive, no matter how gravy it is, but there is no sin GOD will forgive without repentance. For anyone to have forgiveness of sins, he or she must seek forgiveness and repent from the sinful acts. If the person is too big to seek forgiveness, it means the person is too big to be saved. 
  The scriptures says; let everyone that call the name of JESUS CHRIST depart from iniquity(2Timothy2:19). This means, there is no way anyone can call on JESUS if he do not seek forgiveness and repent from his sinful act, and if he cannot call on JESUS, there is no way he can access GOD, because JESUS is the only way to access GOD(John14:6), and if he cannot access GOD, he cannot get all he needs in life, he will remain a prey to the devil and continue to struggle all through life. Because life without GOD is full of struggles. Life without CHRIST is an “Endless Crisis”.
  The truth is this; Every loving father forgives his children when they are wrong, though he may chastise them, to ensure that they are discipline. It is only wicked fathers that will not forgive his children when they are wrong. But if the child run away from home because he thinks his father won’t forgive him, then it is not the fault of the father, but of the child that rum away from home.
 GOD is much more loving than our fathers, so we should never think GOD will not forgive us when we are wrong. The truth is that HE will not run after us. If we run away from HIM because of the guilt of sin, then it is not HIS fault that we are not forgiven, it is not HIS fault that we run away from HIM and suffer the wickedness of the devil.
  Let us stop here today. But here is what I do tell people; I AM NOT A SAINT AS MY NAME IMPLIES, BECAUSE SOMETIMES I WRONG GOD, BUT NO MATTER HOW WRONG I AM, I STILL RUN TO GOD. BECAUSE IF I RUN TO MAN, HE WILL CONDEMN ME. HE MAY GIVE ME AUDIENCE AND GOOD COUNSEL, BUT HE MAY DISCUSS IT WITH SOMEONE. BUT IF I RUN TO GOD, HE WILL NEVER CONDEMN ME, RATHER, HE WILL CORRECT ME WITH LOVE, AND HE WILL NEVER DISCUSS IT WITH ANYONE. THEREFORE, WHENEVER YOU ARE WRONG, RUN TO GOD AND HE WILL FORGIVE YOU…BE WISE…!!!
