His return for the glorious Church

“That He (Christ) might present it to Himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.” (Ephesians 5:27)

Now, Jesus has not yet come because the church is not mature for marriage. The Lord Himself said only the Father knows the time of His coming. The Father is the One who knows when the body will be fully mature because she is the bride betrothed to His son. No father will marry a six years old bride to his son: that bride is not mature, she is yet to reach puberty, her reproductive organs are undeveloped, she has no wisdom for marriage, she’s got to need more time to be trained in education and character and to be ready for the responsibility of marriage and most especially, to understand the groom.

The church in like manner must mature and she must mature fast because the Lord is coming for a mature bride without spot or wrinkle…READ MORE HERE

Children are Products of Words

Words are spirits! Be Careful what you say!

“Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth; thou art taken with the words of thy mouth” (Proverbs 6:2).

“There is that speaketh like the piercings of a sword: but the tongue of the wise is health” (Proverbs 12:18).

“A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh” (Luke 6:45).

Often times when children are rebellious the parents contributed, the words we speak over them from before they were born, the training we give them from the moment of birth really matters a lot. I’ve seen so many Christian brethren speaking the Words of God and praying in tongues over the kids from the moment of birth and claiming them for the Lord. I’ve not seen one of those prayers fail yet. I learnt my own father prayed and prophesied over me while in the womb, he would put his hand on my mothers belly and would prophesy and prayed and say the Scriptures…READ MORE HERE

Mercy Said No!


Mercy Seat

Permit me to share my story without revealing my name.

I have a Jewish root; I was born just like any other child. I grew up in the midst of Palestine. I had all manner of dreams like any other young female child.

Home wasn’t a very pleasant place for me because my parents wouldn’t understand my struggles. It all started sometimes in my childhood, by the time I was a teenager it was growing bad and at my early years in adulthood my life was something else.

I had suffered terrible experiences, ranging form abuse, rape and molestation, my life soon began tearing apart.

I’ve wanted even to commit suicide but somehow I just couldn’t end my life. There was no where turn to. No body would associate with me except for a few, but they had similar problems. I was an object of ridicule to those who knew me. Men in their numbers had taken advantage of me; I have run from one unsaved hand to another in my desperation. Unsaved hands have used me and rob me off my self esteem; they had left me depressed and insecure. Some guys thought, I was stubborn at first, others said I was difficult to persuade but my walls of resistance soon began crumbling, when there was no where to turn to for trust. I was looking for love in all the wrong places. I ended up being used and dumped form one man to another…READ MORE

The Anointing

You have the anointing of God flowing through you if you are born again. The anointing of God is not the Holy Spirit, the anointing of God is the power of the Holy Spirit, the Holy Spirit is God, He’s not an influence emanating from God, but He’s God Almighty for the bible says ” Now the Lord is the Spirit…”2 Cor. 3; 17. The bible also calls Him God in Acts 5:3-4 “But peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Ghost…. thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God”. Jesus Christ also chose the pronoun “He” while promising the Holy Spirit, not “it” “And I will pray the father, and he shall give you another comforter, that ‘he’ may abide with you forever…whom the world cannot receive because it seeth ‘him’ not…” John14; 16-17 The Lord said the world cannot receive the Holy Ghost because it seeth Him not. The reason is because the world is ruled and dominated by the senses. Over the centuries, humanity has trained the brain in the school of the five senses and so the un-renewed mind receives through the senses and found life miserable the moment it get a little beyond the senses. The world must see to believe but thank God we’re beyond the senses. Our own education proceeds within- from the Spirit. We know inwardly but the world sees outwardly to believe. READ MORE HERE

Communion with the Spirit

“The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the Love of God, and the COMMUNION OF THE HOLY GHOST, be with you all Amen”

(2 Corinthians 13:14)

The word “communion” here is the Greek word “Koinonia” which means partnership, participation, intercourse, fellowship among others.

Communion with the Holy Spirit is like standing at the edge of a great sea and attempting to reach further. It’s a journey into the deep from the shallow to the deepest until deep calls unto deep.

Deep calls unto deep at the noise of your waterspouts: all your billows are gone over me.” (Psalm 42:7)

We begin with our feet in the water, and then we go even further. We reach where the water has taken up the knee, but we are not to stop there. We reach further and we are waist deep in the water, but that’s not our destination. We then reach further-we go deeper until we are lost in the sea- caught up in the midst of GodREAD MORE HERE 

The soul winners

By Samson Ajilore II

During a thunderstorm a little girl threw herself into her mother’s arms crying, ”I’m afraid!”

 The mother tried to quiet the child by reminding her of God’s loving and protecting care… But the little one clung the closer “I know God loves me, mummy,” she said, “but when it’s thundering and lightening, I want someone with skin to love me!”

I believe this is without doubt the reason why God put on human skin and became human being .He intended that we respond not by work, since humanity has become too weak to live up to God’s standard as a result of the infection of the sin virus that got into her system from the fall, back in Eden.

Until Christ the “Antivirus” came, we could not come up with any tangible work from our efforts.

Now, we are to respond only by faith in His finished work-believing in what He has done for our sake. He did it all!

Divinity put on humanity to show the love He is and to reproduce Himself into us in love and righteousness.

He wanted to touch us with His love in a human way. That was the only language humanity could understand.

“And the Word became flesh (human, incarnate) and tabernacle-fixed His tent of flesh, lived awhile-among us: and we (actually saw His glory-His honor, His majesty: such glory as an only begotten son receives from his father, full of grace (favor, loving kindness) and truth. John 1; 14.Amplified Bible… READ MORE

For God So Loved You …

by Gloria Copeland


“For God so loved the WORLD” is a wonderful phrase. If God didn’t love us unconditionally, we would have no hope.
John 3:16 gives us a picture of God’s love: “For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He [even] gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life” (The Amplified Bible).

“Whoever” means anybody! The most vicious and vile person you can imagine is a “whoever.”…READ MORE HERE


Dinah’s Silent Cry: How Jesus Heals Abuse

When Jesus visited the woman at the well in Samaria, He opened a fountain of healing that still flows today.

Thousands of years ago, the beautiful daughter of a biblical patriarch wandered into Canaanite territory without any clue that she was stepping into a nightmare. The Bible says that Dinah, the daughter of Jacob and Leah, was raped that day by Shechem, a local prince (see Gen. 34:1-2).

We never hear Dinah’s screams or muffled sobs. In fact we never hear the voice of Dinah in Scripture. Shechem tried to bargain for her hand in marriage after he stole her virginity, but Jacob’s sons deceitfully plotted to kill him and his brothers for his act of defilement. One rape resulted in wholesale slaughter.

But the bloody act of revenge did not bring healing or restoration to Dinah. She was most likely shut away for the rest of her life, since women who had been raped in those days were considered unclean and unmarriageable. The rape was not her fault—but she bore the guilt.

“The world—and often the church—is not willing to visit the place of abuse. But we have a Savior who broke cultural and religious rules to bring His miraculous healing there.”

Dinah’s silence is deafening. She represents the tragic loss of innocence endured by all those who have been sexually abused. She became the prototype of all women who have been violated—and then blamed and shamed as if it were their fault.

What is most interesting about Dinah’s story is the setting—a dusty plot of ground in Israel that would later be part of Samaria. The site of Dinah’s rape was near the piece of land that Jacob had previously purchased from Shechem’s father, Hamor (see Gen. 33:18-20). We don’t read much more in the Bible about that awful place—until the Son of God arrives on the scene in the New Testament.

It is truly amazing that Jesus was willing to visit that unholy site. During His ministry, no rabbi in Israel would dare go near it. Rabbis took the long road around Samaria to avoid mixing with its people.

Yet the Bible says Jesus marched right into Samaria and sat down at a well, located on the plot of ground that Jacob had purchased centuries earlier (see John 4:4-6). There, Jesus broke every religious rule in Jewish rabbinical tradition by speaking with a divorced woman about theological issues in a public place.

We don’t know the Samaritan woman’s name, but I am sure she was familiar with what had happened so long ago in that land. All women in that region probably whispered to each other within their tents about Dinah’s tragic legacy as they shared their own stories of abandonment, abuse and mistreatment.

But something miraculous began to unfold when the Son of God set foot on that defiled ground.
After He spoke tenderly to the Samaritan woman, telling her of the water of life that comes from the true Messiah, He looked into her tormented soul and drained out the pain she had endured from men who had misused her.

“Go, call your husband and come here,” Jesus told her. She threw up her defenses and protested, saying that she did not have a husband.

Jesus lovingly replied: “You have correctly said, ‘I have no husband’; for you have had five husbands, and the one whom you now have is not your husband” (John 4:16-18, NASB).

Jesus was not wagging His finger in the woman’s face or shaming her desperate behavior. He understood her anguish. Most likely she had been abused and abandoned by five men in a row, and by the time the last man threw her out of the house she had no self-esteem left. The sixth man did not even have the decency to marry her.

But on that day in Samaria, the dark clouds that had cast a heavy pall over all women in that region parted. The seventh man had arrived! Jesus was willing to go to that forsaken place, and He identified fully with the pain of abused women. He offered the Samaritan woman not only total freedom from her guilt—but also the boldness to share her story of redemption with an entire village at a time when women did not speak in public.

Do you see the amazing grace and mercy of God at work here? Jesus answered Dinah’s cry.

The world—and often the church—is not willing to visit the place of abuse. We sweep the pain under a rug and ignore the victims. But we have a Savior who broke cultural and religious rules to bring His miraculous healing there.

If you have suffered any form of abuse, or if you still struggle with its shame, then go to Jacob’s well. Jesus is waiting there to give you pure, living water that will cleanse your past, restore lost purity and satisfy your deepest thirst.
