What Apostle Arome Osayi says to his wife on 10th Wedding Anniversary😃

TEN YEARS OF INTENSIFYING SWEETNESS

It has been ten years of God’s faithfulness. I do not even know how to begin this: A great wife, who epitomises God’s limitless supply of grace in my life. Whom I met in one of my missionary journeys to the ancient city of Zaria. The Lord finally revealed she would be my partner for life. Something fluttered in my soul; God’s peace flooded my heart like water from a thousand broken dams.
Ten years later, I can attest to the fact that though man can choose, God knows best. It’s always best therefore to choose in synchrony with God’s will.
I am not being corny when I say marriage under the government of Christ is sweet – my marriage is sweet! It’s been ten years of intensifying sweetness.
Thanks to you, my dear wife, Dinna. The last ten years have been sweet – again, thanks to you.
I cannot say this enough: Next to salvation, you are the best thing that has happened to me. So, darling, as we set foot on the second decade, get ready for a deluge of the unprecedentedness of God.
Thanks for your covenant partnership in making our home a hub for signs and wonders.
I love you my Omoge!

(MUST READ)HELP PASTOR, I HAVE MANY SUITORS, HOW DO I KNOW THE RIGHT ONE FOR ME? PART 2

In the part one of this edition, we have been able to deal with the concept of your garden, knowing your garden.
Your garden means your purpose, your assignment, the reason why you were created, the reason for your existence.

Someone will say pastor, How do I discover my purpose?

Take this example, a knife can be used to kill, but the original purpose is to cut ( meat, bread and so on), now the fact that a knife can kill doesn’t mean it’s purpose is to kill.

How do you now know the purpose of a knife?

You know this by asking the manufacturer or study the manual of the manufacturer.

The way to discover purpose is to ask the manufacturer.
The manufacturer knows the product more than anybody.

Ask God who created you, No body can tell you who you are, Only Him who created you can. He created you, He knows you.

“I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb. Before you were born I set you apart and appointed you as my prophet to the nations.”
Jeremiah 1:5 NLT
https://bible.com/bible/116/jer.1.5.NLT

Secondly, The manual will reveal that knife is for cutting.

All believers have the manual of our maker, The manual is the BIBLE

YOU NEED TO STUDY THE MANUAL OF YOUR MANUFACTURER SO YOU WON’T MISS YOUR FUNCTION AND ALSO MALFUNCTION IN YOUR FUNCTIONS.

To discover purpose, you need to study the manual of your manufacturer

psalm 40: 7 Then I said, “Look, I have come. As is written about me in the Scriptures:
Psalms 40:7 NLT
https://bible.com/bible/116/psa.40.7.NLT

The more you study the word, the more of yourself you discover.

Also, When God created you, He Said let us make man in our own image, After our likeness, I.e let them have abilities to do the things we can do, let them have the capacity to think, ,discover, process, produce etc.

He gave you His Spirit to guide you when He breathe into your nostrils the breathe of Life,

He gave you a mind(Soul) to feel, think, have emotions, He gave you Brain to process.
All these are gifts from Him

He implanted passion Into you, He gave you desire, He gave you interest.

So how do you discover purpose with these gifts?

Your passion and interests are a pointer to your purpose.

The things you are naturally attracted to are pointers to your purpose.

Your purpose is the end to which your start a journey.

It is the reason for your living.

What you hate is a pointer to what you are created to solve

The problem you are created to solve is the reason why you are created.

Every purpose or assignment is a people oriented agenda.

So you can discover your purpose via your passion and hates.

Some of us are called to solve spiritual problems, some financial, some medical some, heart and excitement related.

Not everyone will be a pastor or be in ministry, some are called into medicine, some education.

Every human being has a primary purpose and a secondary purpose

The primary purpose is to Glorify God on earth
The Secondary purpose is the reason why you are here.

Ensure you discover your purpose (garden before you look for marriage, Purpose comes before marriage. Because you are supposed to fulfill purpose via marriage.

Marriage is more than intimacy, it is your destiny.

I hope this helps someone

I will continue Part 3 later

I see a burning generation

WHY DO I LACK FRIENDS?

The reason why GOD has been receiving so much LOVE from billions of people for millenniums now, was because HE showed LOVE first.
And we have deemed it fit to try our best to reciprocate HIS LOVE.

In LIFE, we may never receive LOVE from so many people till we LOVE them first…

Many atimes, being beautiful doesn’t make people LOVE you, in fact it attracts more of lust that you could possibly imagine…

Proverbs 18:24 A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.

Very Simple!

Ignorance of this TRUTH has made many people lonely and neglected…

They act so much, they dress so much, they speak so fluently… But they’ve never understood the concept of ‘sticking closer than a brother’

It is something you earn…
So, it is not good enough to keep complaining, that no one LOVES you, or people hate seeing with you, or you feel so neglected…

Come out of that box of ideologies and renew your mind…

SHOW yourself friendly… And FRIENDS would come running after you.

LOVE AND PASSION DIFFER

Many at times, we are confronted with some temptations that demand us doing what we know is against the will of GOD…
We remember that “This is not of GOD” but we eventually give in to them.

Brothers and Sisters, This is a proof we don’t love GOD as we claim we do.

There’s a difference between Hunger for GOD and Love for GOD….

What is hunger?
As a result of the Great things we may have seen or heard that happened in places, we develop this passion to Live for GOD so we can wrought many wonders and bring many souls into the kingdom…

Yes, the Bible makes us understand the reason why need to be thirsty and hungry for the Spirit…
But, Brethren,
It is possible to hunger for GOD and not LOVE GOD…

How can we can identify when we are just hungry for Revivals and Supernatural Occurrences without us truly loving GOD?

1. When you find out that you are losing the passion you have for the Kingdom of GOD because you have not been getting substantial results despite your investments in your spiritual life?

2. When you only cry and wait on GOD when you are confronted with Trials?

3. When you only Cry for Harvest of souls when you perceive that people are backsliding around you.

4. When you appropriate time for GOD only when you’re convenient…

And so many other indicators..

True Love for GOD will always produce a strange Hunger and Desire for HIM…

Its like your Favourite Food…

When it is brought to you, whether you are hungry for it or not, you would definitely accept it. Why? You love it…

But, if it’s a food you don’t love, you decide when you eat it or not, … If you ain’t hungry for it… You leave it…

Dear Brother/Sister….

Do you truly love GOD?

Or you’ve been thinking all along that you love HIM just because you’ve been going up and down because of the results you want to see….

I pray that GOD in HIS eternal mercy and Kindness would pour out HIS LOVE into US in JESUS NAME…..

pastor Busoga of Uganda says he is so holy that he can’t walk on ground so as not to be contaminated. So his members submitted their bodies as a stepping stone.

pastor Busoga of Uganda says he is so holy that he can’t walk on ground so as not to be contaminated. So his members submitted their bodies as a stepping stone. When pride sets into the body of Christ.. The effects are always devastating GOD isn’t looking for people who are looking for robust congregration He doesn’t need people who are desperate to get rich He’s not asking for vessels who just want power to show the WORLD their abilities… GOD seeks a humble and contrite heart that would live for HIM.. Psalms 51:17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise. An AMBASSADOR of HIS KINGDOM… What are your motives of serving GOD? Why do you want to become so popular? Do you really love GOD as you claim to do? Check yourself now.. And submit yourself afres to the HOLY GHOST.

WHY DID JESUS HAVE TO DIE? WHY??

lkl

WHY DID JESUS HAVE TO DIE?

WHY WAS IT JESUS, NOT JUST A POWERFUL ANGEL?

WHY IS IT ONLY THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST THAT CAN CLEANSE SINS?

Really Why…….

Many Christians have been confronted by un-believers, despite their knowledge of the WORD, they find it hard to prove why DEATH was what JESUS CHRIST had to accept….. and nothing else.

I will list some reasons why JESUS CHRIST had to die…

I trust the HOLY SPIRIT to grant you an understanding that will establish the TRUTH…

 WHY IT WAS JESUS CHRIST THAT HAD TO DIE

John 3:16– For GOD so LOVED the world, that HE GAVE HIS only begotten SON, that the world through HIM might be saved

This verse establishes that, there was a time when the world was lost, that happened in the fall at Eden…

Now, Two things happened, GOD lost HIS Relationship with us, and we also lost ours with HIM. We were far more disadvantaged, because GOD still retained all HIS Glory after our fall.

But, something changed the whole story, HIS AGAPE LOVE.

To regain that lost relationship… One of the two parties had to Lose something to gain that relationship back….

In our value system, there was nothing man could so rather than keep DIEING to fulfil the greediness of sin through DEATH…

Therefore, something precious was needed to regain it back, GOD therefore couldn’t release a mere angel, no matter how powerful they were, because we are even more precious than angels… HE had to release HIS ONLY SON….

 

WHY HIS DEATH WAS THE ONLY RESORT THAT COULD RESTORE OUR RELATIONSHIP

Genesis 3:3- But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, GOD hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, LEST YE DIE….

This tells us that DEATH was our punishment for that sin, and GOD’S WORD wouldn’t go without fulfilling it’s purpose…

So, JESUS CHRIST came to the world to become US, so if GOD’S WORD had established death, HE had no choice than to do A SUBSTITUTION that will last forever.

See, HIS AGAPE LOVE was never available to the angels that were doomed (2Peter 2:4)

agapelove-e1427894274617

Death was passed to all men, by sin, so… For life to be passed the same, one man had to die, when Adam sinned, we fell, so one who had eternal life had to die, the limit of his years, is the duration of our redemption… Hence, the eternal life in HIM, established our eternal reconciliation to HIM (Romans 5:12)

WE WERE RECONCILED BY HIS DEATH, BUT WE WERE SAVED BY HIS LIFE.

 

Also….

John 15:13- Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends…

Now, GOD’S LOVE is PERFECT, so whatever way it manifests has to be the highest level it can ever manifest… SO, GOD couldn’t ever settle for anything less, HE WANTED SOMETHING THAT WILL LAST FOREVER…

 

WHY IS IT ONLY THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST THAT CAN CLEANSE SINS?

     We human beings, were doomed for eternal death….

     We were already under condemnation to death….

 

  1 Corinthians 15:55- O death, where is thy sting?  O grave, where is thy victory?

56- The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law

57- But thanks be to GOD, which giveth us the victory through our LORD JESUS CHRIST.

Death’s access to us was sin, and the law strengthened it, the law couldn’t stop us from sinning, only the spirit of LIFE that Ministers to us through THE WORD, no wonder it was called THE LAW OF THE SPIRIT OF LIFE in Romans 8:2

       The product of the exchange was the access point to our redemption, that is why, our sins that held us under death couldn’t be washed by the name of JESUS CHRIST, because the name only existed after he resurrected, it couldn’t be washed by the supremacy of GOD, but only by HIS BLOOD that was shed at the site of that exchange..

 

 

FINALLY…

 

       WHY DID WE NOT KNOW WHY HE HAD TO DIE before we killed him…till this TIME

HEROD didn’t even find JESUS guilty on trial, but the devil had been looking for a way to get back at GOD, if the devil knew HE was sealing our redemption….He wouldn’t have manipulated the Religious leaders to nail HIM to death…..

1 Corinthians 2:8- Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the LORD OF GLORY.

   GOD made the reason of HIS DEATH, a mystery so that we couldn’t understand it, not even principalities

1 Corinthians 2:9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the……..

    vs 10- But GOD hath revealed them unto us by (HIS SPIRIT)

   That was how the mystery of HIS DEATH WAS UN-RAVELLED….

No wonder the HOLY SPIRIT couldn’t come into us, till he DIED

 

Romans 5:10- For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to GOD by the death of HIS SON, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by HIS LIFE….

 

WE WERE RECONCILED BY HIS DEATH, BUT WE WERE SAVED BY HIS LIFE…

GLORY TO GOD!!

FAITH THAT WORKETH BY LOVE

img_4620

 

Have you ever wondered why we have faith and we try to manifest it, but it just doesn’t work?

Could be very frustrating… right?

I want to show us a mystery that will change the course of our Life….

Just open your heart to this TRUTH!

 

Galatians 5:1 Stand Fast therefore in the Liberty wherewith CHRIST hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage……..

……vs 5 For we through the SPIRIT wait for the hope of Righteousness by faith..

……vs 6 For in JESUS CHRIST neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor un-circumcision; but FAITH which WORKETH BY LOVE

NOW LOOK AT THIS…

The Bible says the only way our Faith will work is BY LOVE……

Illustration: I want to travel by sea, using a boat

SEA- TRANSPORT MEDIUM

BOAT- CARRIER

Our FAITH- BOAT (without faith it is impossible……Hebrews 11:6)

BY SEA- BY LOVE

This means the only way our faith will work is BY LOVE…

So, if you are going to make your FAITH EFFECTIVE, ADD MORE LOVE… not power, not more praying on mountains… BUT MORE LOVE

LOVE FUELS YOUR FAITH

GOD IS LOVE, THE SPIRIT OF LOVE, JESUS CHRIST THE WORD, FEED ON THE WORD, INCREASE YOUR LOVE FOR GOD….FEEDS YOUR FAITH…

That’s only what availeth, RELIGION won’t help you… your pastor can’t do it…you have to ask for grace to LOVE

Vs 9- A LITTLE LEAVEN LEAVENETH THE WHOLE LUMP

Keep adding LOVE, it will change all… stop feeding your faith with fake food… it won’t avail a thing…

Churches are increasing, congregations are increasing, and the body of Christ is decreasing if not sinking….

 

Vs 16 This I say then, WALK IN THE SPIRIT, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh

Vs 25 If we LIVE IN THE SPIRIT, let us also WALK IN THE SPIRIT…

The only way to overcome the lust of the flesh is to WALK IN THE SPIRIT.. WALKING IN LOVE…

That was what the Bible meant…

Many BELIEVERS live in the SPIRIT but do not WALK IN THE SPIRIT…

Why?

When we get born again… We are born into the SPIRIT

But if we don’t practice the ways of the SPIRIT….LOVE we ain’t walking in the SPIRIT

 

We are of no use to GOD when we live there and do not walk there..

It’s like travelling abroad, when you get there, you live there… if you don’t get out to work…though you are still there.. you ain’t of use to them …

So, BEGIN TO WALK IN LOVE LIKE NEVER BEFORE… ONLY THEN, CAN YOUR FAITH AVAIL!

You can’t because of LOVE be saved, and then after that start to feed yourself with another substance….it’s impossible

Dollars got you into AMERICA, Naira or Euro or Pound won’t help you there…

 

Stay Blessed…

Are you making use of the resources GOD has given you???

Quotes_Creator_20170904_222333

It’s a default state for believers to desire things from GOD. It’s no new thing…..

But, we understand that GOD has blessed all with all blessings we’ll ever need, even if we were to start our lives over again.(Ephesians 1:3)
If this is really true, our prayer points should take a drastic turn.
We should be more concerned with making perfect use of the resources placed in our use.
Look at this…. We have the mind of Christ, we have the HOLY SPIRIT, we have the gifts, we have the WORD …. All in our possession.
We should change our concern into how we can use it to please HIM.
HE’S all out for us, what are you doing for HIM.
That’s what will differentiate you from a immature believer.

I want you to seriously take some time, and ask the HOLY SPIRIT, how you can be of effective use to HIM.
And quit asking HIM for those cares*, HE’S taken care of already…

#we reciprocate love

Am not loving myself alone##

Before we can make genuine impact in this world…

Before we can advance the body of Christ…..

Before we can influence lives and manifest our identities in Christ

We need to understand the mystery of LOVE

This Love isn’t one which depends on the Results we desire to produce

It’s the LOVE which was expressed by Christ on a default state

We need to develop that LOVE for both sinners and Believers

Till we get to a point, where we are just bent on Embarrassing people with LOVE

That point where are sole goal in life is to be rooted in Christ and also making sure others are also in a similar state

Do you really love the body of Christ….

Happy new month.

Don’t forget to comment…….

Stay Blessed!?!
