Your Stand For God Is Actually For Your Children As Well!

“Here am I with the children whom the LORD has given me! We are for signs and wonders in Israel from the LORD of Hosts, Who dwells in Mount Zion” (Isaiah 8:18). The above Scripture is one of the most quoted by the sons of God. The Scripture tells us that as servants of the Most High, we and our children are for signs and wonders upon the land because God said so and not as a result of a government policy. However, if that is not the case, it is not the government’s fault but ours. This is so because we are supposed to operate and live under a different system. Remember, though we are in this world, as children of God, we are not of the world (John 17:16). It is true we must obey the laws of the land and live by them; we are actually supposed to be guided by the laws of God from which governments derive their laws. If you do agree with this argument, it then becomes preposterous when children of God accuse the government of the day for the lapses on their part and their children’s

The Age-old Deception

As the coming of Christ draws near by the day, so is the growth of the darkness that covers the earth. 2Timothy chapter 3 calls the times difficult and hard times to be a practicing Christian. The Scripture went further to state that people will see what is good and will hate it; they will hold to a form of godliness but deny the power within. Friend, sadly these are indeed the times! It is no longer morally right to see what is wrong and call it as it should be but because of political correctness, things that are clearly wrong are hailed as right; laws and policies are then put in place to legitimize them. In fact, these are days when even the righteous questions that which is right. Jesus Christ warned about these times when He said: “Take care then, that the light in you is not darkness” (Luke 11:35). How can this be, you may ask; how can one see that which is glaringly wrong and call it good, see darkness and call it light? The answer is the age-old deception of the devil; h

Pray Tell, What Platform Are You Operating From?

T here is a popular saying that goes thus: “When in Rome you behave like the Romans”. So many have taken this statement to mean to partake in whatever situation one finds himself in order to achieve a particular goal. A friend once challenged me on this issue as he felt it is not only a powerful saying (undeniably) but it has biblical backing in his opinion. According to him, Paul said he became all things to all men in order to win them to Christ. Thus, to him it is judgmental of anyone to judge another on this. According to him, we can and should go to all lengths to win as many to Christ on this platform. His argument that day, was quite powerful and convincing because it had a semblance of truth in it. This is what actually got me uncomfortable! Let’s look at the Scripture my friend supposedly quoted from: “For although I am free from all people, I have made myself a slave to all, in order to win more people…To the weak I became weak, in order to win the weak. I have become al

No Dodging Those Vows

I remembered when I was little and in Sunday School, one biblical story that fascinated me was the story of Jephtah (Judges 11:29-40). I had difficulty wrapping my head round the story of a man that gave up his only child because he made a vow! My young impressionable mind felt since he made such a rash decision, he should have changed his mind. My Sunday School teacher taught us then not to make rash vows to God as Jephtah did. This lesson guided me in my eventual walk with God in regards to making vows before God. The Bible tells us in Ecclesiastes 5:1-7 to be mindful of our words when we are in the Presence of God or we will be in danger of offering unacceptable sacrifices. Jesus clarified this, when in teaching His disciples how to pray, He said: “When you pray, don’t babble like the idolaters, since they imagine they’ll be heard for their many words…” (Matthew 6:7). Looking at the account of Jephtah again, I beg to differ with my Sunday School teacher that Jephtah’s vow was

Gain Your Life!

This millennial is a great one to be living in because we are seeing the Scriptures literary come to life; this is the millennial that will usher in the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. When asked by His Disciples about His coming, He gave markers that will happen; the truth is most of the markers have happened and are happening in our time (Luke 21:1-33). For the naysayers, He warned that “Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will never pass away” (Luke 21:33). This is the affirmation that the world will indeed come to an end as He has said and His coming is sure and imminent as He has promised. For this reason, the enemy had stepped up its workings in distracting the people so as to get weighed down with the business of life. When people are weighed down with the business of life like in the days of Noah, they are not mindful of the things of God; eventually they lose sight of them. One of the strategies the enemy has deployed to cause the sons of God to be distrac
