(Control The Circumstances Of Your Life)
TO THE BIBLE; 1 John 5:4
“For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.”
When you study Jesus and the way He responded to different circumstances, you’ll discover He was always in charge. His language was that of faith and absolute mastery. He was always in control, unperturbed by anything. His words were faith-filled, and He displayed an attitude of rest in the midst of turmoil. This is the life He’s given us; a life of absolute mastery, where you cease from all worries and express your faith unperturbed.
Even when He was told His friend Lazarus had been dead and buried four days, Jesus remained unruffled. Instead, with all calmness and assurance, He told Mary and Martha, Lazarus’ sisters: “…I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live” (John 11:25). Nothing could shake Him; He was the picture of supreme confidence! He stood at the entrance of the sepulchre, uttered a simple prayer of thanks to the Father, and called out: “Lazarus, come out!” The man that had been dead for four days came hopping out of the grave alive! (John 11:41-44).
That was faith functioning from a place of rest and absolute mastery. Faith recognises no fear, because it trusts in the ability of God. When you’re faced with challenges, don’t cower or become frightful or fretful. Be in charge, irrespective of what happens around you. If you receive negative news from afar, maintain your composure and declare God’s Word. Take charge. Refuse to worry; just give the Word and effect a change. Hallelujah!
|| Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Dear heavenly Father, I thank you for the power of your Word which causes me to function from a place of rest and mastery over all situations. I live victoriously over all distracting elements of this world in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
John 15:18-16:1-16, 1 Chronicles 5-6
Mark 14:22-31, Numbers 34
What are those negative circumstances facing you today? Speak God’s Word to them, and watch them conform to what you say.

Be About His Work - Tuesday, May 31st .

Pastor Chris

...This same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven (Acts 1:11).

More than ever, you must take your participation and involvement in the things of God very seriously. Commit yourself to God's vision. His vision is soul winning; He wants the whole earth to be filled with the knowledge of His glory as the waters cover the sea. Hence, everything you do must be geared towards winning souls for Jesus Christ; it's your calling. Stay focused and committed to it.

Make no mistakes, He's coming back again, and He needs to find you busy, doing what He told you to do. He said to His disciples, "If ye love me, keep my commandments" (John 14:15). If you truly love Him, do His will; live for Him. Don't let your life be conditioned to this earth. Let Him come and find you doing what He's called you to do.

You may ask, "How soon is He coming?" Very soon! It doesn't matter if it's in a matter of days, weeks, months or years; as long as you're in fellowship with Him, walking in the light as He is in the light (1 John 1:7), when He comes, you'll be ready. You might just be winning souls on that day, or disturbing Rhapsody of Realities when that trumpet sounds, but you'll hear it. The Bible says, "In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed" (1 Corinthians 15:52).

Put away every distraction and be afire for the Lord, fulfilling the ministry of reconciliation (2 Corinthians 5:18-19). Let God, and His work of kingdom expansion, be all that you live for. One day, you're going to stand before the Judgment Seat of Christ, and give account for everything He instructed you to do (2 Corinthians 5:10). Let Him say to you at the end, "...Well done, thou good and faithful servant..." (Matthew 25:21).

Precious Lord, your zeal and passion have consumed me, and like never before, I'm spreading the message of the Gospel of Christ into the nations of the world. I'm enabled by the Spirit, to proclaim the Word with power and boldness, turning many from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, and into their inheritance in Christ, in Jesus' Name. Amen.

Further Study:
Matthew 28:19-20
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Luke 21:25-27
And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; 26 Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. 27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.

Religion / Re: I Have 7 Physical Proof Of Reincarnation That Will Shock You by johnydon22(m): 3:12pm
The proponents of reincarnation believe that it occurs after death, but Elijah did not die! Besides, this is what it says:

So it can be concluded Elijah is still alive in the flesh and blood in heaven right now? And also appeared with Moses (already dead) with same Characteristics of a spirit?

Now before anyone assumes that this means Elijah's spirit(human) see:

And when they had crossed over, Elijah said to Elisha, “Ask what I shall do for you before I am taken from you.” And Elisha said, “Please let a double [b]portion of your spirit be upon me.”
2 Kings 2:9

You see i had to move this one a little up first because the spirit you mentioned up is translated in most biblical texts as Power

But luke 1:17 mentioned both Spirit and power so this falls sorely on the translation

It is he who will go as a forerunner before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the fathers back to the children, and the disobedient to the attitude of the righteous [which is to seek and submit to the will of God]—in order to make ready a people [perfectly] prepared [spiritually and morally] for the Lord.”
Luke 1:17

Since both spirit and power are mentioned here the spirit talked about by Elishah in 2kings 2:9 cannot be same as the spirit talked about here since the 2kings 2:9 spirit is broadly referring to power and not actual spirit.

But here we have both power and spirit in bold texts.... How then do you hope to conclude using reference to 2kings 2:9 that the Spirit mentioned in both verses have one and the same meaning.

Meaning, John would be coming with the mantle/anointing of Elijah and this will enable him do a specific thing (out of all Elijah did) viz:

It is he who will go as a forerunner before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the fathers back to the children, and the disobedient to the attitude of the righteous [which is to seek and submit to the will of God]—in order to make ready a people [perfectly] prepared [spiritually and morally] for the Lord.
Luke 1:17

Elijah did that on Mount Carmel

Spirit and power here means separate things, so if the verse mentioned would come in the spirit of Elijah only then it would have been reconcilable even though actual greek text would still be needed for evaluation.

but it so remains that matt 17:12-13 explicitly recognized John as a reincarnated Elijah.

Politics / 8 Soldiers Feared Dead, As Militants Attack Gunboats In Onitsha by Chimarto(m): 2:58pm
Niger Delta militant group, Concerned Militant Leaders (CML), has claimed responsibility for yesterday’s attack at Onitsha river, Anambra State, where eight soldiers were feared dead.
Spokesman of the group, popularly known as General Ben, revealed this yesterday in the social media.
He also claimed the group executed the attack in Nkpor where three persons were killed and the burning of a police patrol van in Onitsha.
General Ben, in the statement, said the group’s action was to show the Federal Government and security agencies that they should not underrate the activities of the Niger Delta militants, or limit their operations to the region.
The CML group said the members were working in conjunction with the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) to cripple the nation’s economy.
Ben declared: “My men were responsible for the killing of eight soldiers at Onitsha river. They were killed when my men attacked their military gunboat in Onitsha. We are responsible for the incident in Nkpor near Onitsha.
“It may sound doubtful; but we want to tell Nigerians that we are not limited to Niger Delta region. This is a warning to the Nigerian government that no amount of security threat will deter us. More attacks will still take place.
“We stand by every ultimatum given to any group or company. We will touch the soul of the economy of this nation. We are not interested in resources but, sovereignty”.
General Ben further said it was not their intention to strike yesterday, as it coincided with the anniversary of the Movement for the Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB).
“We had to execute the operation to teach the military lesson. We have been quiet for a long time, but time for action has come”, he vowed.

Wasn't John already dead before the transfiguration?
Sure he was, the more reason why, if John was Elijah reincarnated, the person seen on the mount should have been John not Elijah!

Besides, Peter and the rest knew John so if the person they saw on the mount was John, at least there should have been an allusion thereto!
Politics / Re: Army: Why We Attacked Protesting MASSOB, IPOB Members by theDEVILisHERE: 2:44pm
I find it funny how they keep mentioning MASSOB. You won't understand if you cannot reason critically. The government has bribed MASSOB to use it to neutralize IPOB, meaning if the Army kills IPOB members, they will say it was MASSOB members they killed in self defense and they... bribed MASSOB will confirm that yes they only killed our members not IPOB. They will even go as far as justifying their killings that the dead and wounded were acting outside of MASSOB guidelines... by arming themselves to harm the Army.

Literature / Re: The Unknown Shadows by Divepen1(m): 2:41pm
Chapter 3

Saviour of The Night

The weeks that followed Shade’s sudden disappearance from his life weakened the hope that he had harbour within the corner of his heart of ever having a relationship with her. He had hoped that a miracle would bring back the goddess-like Shade to him, to tell him what his life was like before now, but she didn’t show up.
Seeing, that she had left him for good, he decided to live a normal life, if it was anything near normal. Fortunately, for him, he had written the password to most of his things in his diary, and that gave him ample opportunities to withdraw money from his bank, Gtbank. After he discovered that he was two million naira rich.
Jerry started teaching English in the school, and nothing made him happier than to know that he was good at teaching English. He was enjoying every stay there; in fact, the only thing he enjoyed most was listening to other teachers tell their experiences, especially the wayward ones describing their evil deed enthusiastically, putting comma to every of their sentences and using the appropriate adjectives to describe their waywardness.
After school, he would walk about the area to see if there was anything to remind him of who he was but nothing brought back the memory, so he decided to remain in his comfort zone: go to school, sleep, eat, and the rest, enjoying his new and perfect life.
Later, he joined a church and was active there, studying the bible as if it was the only thing in the world.
Sometimes, he would do some background research on his background, but he always meets a dead end; in fact, when he got to the schools he saw in his certificates, they didn't give him helpful information. Even the numbers they gave him were either wrong or not available. And for four months he kept searching all about himself until he knew there was nothing he could do to bring back the past.
Therefore, he decided to let it go- everything- because from what the teachers at his school had been saying, having a family can even be a bad thing.
Nothing was as good as living alone; you get the chance to enjoy your life. His laptop was very useful as he watched many films on it. Although, he didn't know how he got the films on it but after the third month of trying to remember anything that could help him in quest for knowledge of whom he was, he decided that he had to let go and enjoy every bit of his life. People in the house do not know him and he loved it that way.
And it was with this mind-set he got out of his room on the night of October 30, around 12.30 a.m. The night was dry as usual, PHCN had refused to restore the light of the environment for four days and all his gadgets had died from him over working them- he had used his phone to play game after his laptop went off. Even the sky had been dry ever since he woke in June. There had been no record of rain anywhere in Lagos, Ibadan, Ogun state and Osun state, despite the torrents of rain in the other part of Nigeria.
Sitting on a chair, in the dark night, was cool and his heart lurched with happiness as he imagined himself living in a dark world for years. Jerry savoured the moment as he stared at the outlines of trees, and watched the red light of a mast blink continually from afar.
He mouth Nathaniel Bassey’s song
Summer, Winter, Autumn spring.
Mountain, blue sky and the sea.
Rainbow sunshine and the trees
Jesus, maker of them all.
Everywhere I go I see you right there
In the beauty of nature you shine al…
Something shuffled past him. He didn’t know what it was but he knew that he had to enter his room, so he picked his chair, and that one screeched in the dark as Jerry picked it up hurriedly. As he turned to close the door, someone pushed the door with so much force that Jerry fell but he rose up immediately, and the door closed gently. He could make out the outline of someone crouching around the door.
‘Who is there?’ He said, whispering as against the noise he was expecting to come from his mouth.
‘Shhh’, the person hissed angrily like a snake whose tail was stepped on, that was ready to spit out its venom on the person. Jerry held his breathe as he felt his eyes widen in it's socket.
Several legs shuffled outside his room. Now, that made him wished his room were not opened to the street as it was. The people outside were beginning to raise their voices, the air in the room reduced.
‘Catch him’.
‘‘He must not escape’
‘Today must be his last’
Jerry was transfixed on a spot and knew that if he moved near that person there, he might be injured. There was no light to show him who the person was but he was beginning to understand from the people outside that this person was a thief and would receive immediate death sentence, if caught.
Feeling terrible, Jerry shifted weight from one leg to another as he wondered what could make this person become a gentleman of the night especially when there were many opportunities opened for the young and old, the rich and poor, blacks and whites.
When the people left his arena, and decided to check other part of area, with the hope of going back home satisfied that they have caught the robber, PHCN restored the light.
The first thing to report was the old fan, which hummed-on angrily like an injured cow. The heat began scampering for hiding as the air drew coolness into the room.
The person before Jerry was panting hard, and held a gun so hard that if it were a glass cup, it would have broken. He followed the texture of the thief’s body and saw the most surprising thing since the few days he regained consciousness. He swallowed hard, even his Adam’s apple made a loud noise in the night, making the thief look at him quickly, and he was sure that he was seeing right; she was a lady.
He shook his head gradually, showing her that he was not going to be an ally, and that he wouldn't take side in bad things, that he had to do the right thing.
‘I can’t let you stay here’, he said in a low voice; yet loud enough for the thief to hear.
Sensing he would do what he said, she rose suddenly. Jerry moved back with fear, and raised his hands to prepare himself, knowing that thieves who are threatened would do anything from maiming their attackers to killing them to elude being caught; instead of doing any of what Jerry thought she would, the lady went on her kneel, joining her hands.
‘Please, bros…’ she said, with a silky voice,’ don’t let them catch me’.
‘But you are a lady, why did you join these people... ehn’
‘It’s a long story. Please spare me and I promise you will not regret it. Someday, I will come back to help you’.
Help him?
He felt sad for her, a young lady of not more than twenty-if his calculation was right- joining armed robbers.
‘You can’t help me… I’m the one that can help you and what I want of you and from you is that you stop stealing’.
Immediately, she raised her hands in the I-surrender position and cried out like one that had been shown a greater wisdom. Her mask was still on, making her look like a robot.
‘I will not steal again’.
Jerry’s eyes went to the wall and knew that he had to do something for her, and the first thing was to switch off the light, and the next was to shelter her.
‘Alright, give me your gun till tomorrow’, he said as he locked the door.
The lady looked at the gun and looked at him, then shrugged. She brought her hands forward, and looked at Jerry as if he has been forewarned. When she handed the gun to Jerry, he bursted into a terrible laughter that jolted the lady.
‘You do not mean you are using a toy gun’, he smiled.
He turned the gun in his hand, and for a fragment of seconds, he wished the gun was real, so that he would use it to shoot himself later in the day, to end his trouble.
‘Well, you have to wait till tomorrow. So, sleep here’ he said, pointing to his bed.
‘No… Don’t worry; I’ll sleep here on the floor’.
‘No…No. Do come and sleep here’.
She agreed and laid on the bed after putting off her shoes, but instead of sleeping, she sat at the farthest corner of the bed holding herself tightly.
Jerry went to the switch and put off the bulb, plunging the room into utmost darkness, the only light that was reflecting in the room was that of the lights coming from the bulb outside shining through the curtain. He decided to lie down, to sleep.
Suddenly, the noise of the searchers came again and this time to his door. And they knocked.
Romance / Re: Help! My Babe Have Not Seen Her Period. Continuation.... by MrCork: 2:29pm
Hmm... sad
Where should i even start from

Hello everybody,
Yesterday i carried out the taste as expected and the result was positive.

Actually i was really overwhelmed with series of thought on what next to do.

So I decided to ask my babe what she think we should do concerning the issue. To my surprise, she said am the one to figure out what should be done. Stressing that, marrying as a result of unintended pregnancy will be a bad precedent in her family...

Although, i never open up on any possibility of marrying her, because even if i do and my parents also accept the marriage, they won't be willing to dish out any dine in support.

As for me, i don't have money as it stand to be talking about going into an unprepared marriage.

The idea of her keeping the pregnancy and probably delivering the baby was dead on arrival.

She said that she will never accept the idea, pointing out that she can not bear the shame of carrying a pre-marital pregnancy before her relatives.

As it is now, D&C seemed to be the only solution to balance the equation between I and my babe.

Now she is pressuring me to find a way out to terminate the gestation before any of her family members suspect.

I have not decided on D&C yet.

So i decided to bring it up in continuation of the previous 'thread' http://www.nairaland.com/3115699/babe-not-seen-period

Should i go ahead and balance the equation

Or what do you think is an alternative

Now op, that place you quoted took place after the revelation on the Mount of Transfiguration where Moses and ,....Elijah appeared to Jesus! The implication is that John the Baptist was NOT Elijah. Else, there would have been at least a faint allusion thereto either by Jesus or the disciples. If John was Elijah reincarnated, and transfiguration took place with Moses and Elijah appearing, where was John?

3 And behold, Moses and Elijah appeared to them, talking with Jesus Matthew 17:3

Wasn't John already dead before the transfiguration?

TV/Movies / Re: The Vampire Diaries and The Originals Fan Page by thenny312(m): 2:10pm
The CW network has released the list of shows that will premiere in fall, and "The Originals" season 4 is not on it; instead, the show will return in early 2017. Meanwhile, the shocking season 3 finale has left a lot of story potential going into the season.

Marcel is in control of New Orleans once again as the prophecy of the Mikaelsons' fall has come to play. With all the things he has been through since viewers first met him, a different Marcel is expected as the series returns.

In an interview with TV Guide, executive producer Michael Narducci said, "At the end of our season, Marcel and Hayley are the only ones left. Marcel is standing somewhat triumphant, although he's lost people that he loves, including his former family. Hayley, with her daughter, is the guardian of these sleeping vampires and on the run. Season 4 is just packed with story potential. What you can definitely assume is that after a time cut, these sleeping giants are going to awaken and they are not going to be happy."

The circumstances surrounding the death of Davina drove Marcel to turn against the siblings whom he once called family. However, "The Originals" are what the show is all about and the writers have brilliantly created a storyline that kills the stars yet keep them alive at the same time.

Marcel's bite has put Elijah's and Kol's lives on the line, while Freya has been poisoned. Klaus was put in trial for his misdeeds and Rebekah was brought in for a plan to stop him from being killed. In the end, Papa Tunde's blade put Klaus in a fate worse than death. The blade kept Klaus in coma filled with sorrow, while Freya successfully cast a spell that put them all in sleep, including herself and Rebekah. While asleep, their lives are anchored on Klaus until Hayley finds a cure.

How Hayley helps the Mikaelsons rise from their semi-dead state will be the starting point for season 4's plot. There are no details revealed yet, but Narducci teased, "As to what happens there, I'm going to leave it to the fans to think about and debate amongst themselves. We've got some great stuff planned."

Those dreams of her should be torn, trashed and burnt
Those poems you wrote about being friends forever should be read and never remembered
The words and the wishes shouldn’t cost so much
The time and effort, and the memories lost in the fire should never be recovered
The pain and the shame should be better than the hate
The middle finger to that silly and selfless promise should be enough to pay for all the loneliness you feel in the rain
You should know when the dance is over and the music has stopped
You should know when to accept the dead is dead not lost
Your heart won’t always win
and your head knows the pain is real
For your soul will always be willing, your flesh will always weak
Keep all the love in your heart and live with the shame of your greed
Hold unto hope and be hate free

For love don’t cost a thing , freedom from those dreams and what could have been always will

Only a brainless person would believe that BIG FAT LIE. And only a walking dead devoid of conscience would spew an obvious crap from NPF as fact.

NPF has no capacity to dispense facts let alone truth.

Here's proof:

1. This year NPF killed a PH student and denied it.

2. This year NPF allowed mascre in NIMBO and denied it ever happened. In fact they even gave an "official statement" (like that lying demon in asaba just did) and called nimbo invasion by fulani herdsmen an "inter communal conflict"

3. Up till this very moment the NPF's official stand is that agatu masacre never happened.

Only a walking dead would accept NPF's official position as fact.

These group that's being murdered in cold blood were out for COMMEMORATION not even for a protest. Only a lunatic would believe that an unarmed group that's out on a peaceful event would suddenly go to confront an army-vehiecle.

But for everyone that's shamelessly lusting for igbo blood in any way, without remorse and sympathy, I decree and declare today that the very thing you imagine against igbos will engulf you like a whirlwind and consume you very fast like a wilde flame. Your fate is sealed now. Now is your moment of judgement.

But for the igbo nation, people and friends, it will be longevity, peace, and prosperity all the way.

There's Gendry, he could be legitimised. There's actually more, but thats in the books. Robert had some 16 bastards or so. And if Tommen should die, then the throne will go to Margaery, she'll be the last king's widow, and a Baratheon by marriage. Then Cersei comes after her. Simply speaking if a new dynasty is one the throne, you cannot go back to the old one except by force.
Gendry is dead and the only way a bastard can be legitimized is if the father does that or if another legitimate heir wills his rights to the bastard. The way it is now, non of that can happen with any of Roberts bastards.
Politics / Re: Policeman Killed In Error By Soldiers On Bauchi-Jos Road (Graphic Photo) by Franky826(m): 1:23pm
This is a graphic photo of the policeman who was killed in error by soldiers at a checkpoint along Bauchi to Jos road on Saturday. The unfortunate incident saw soldiers shoot a bus conveying policemen travelling from Taraba to Kaduna -killing him in the process.

According to a press statement from the army, the error was a result of the refusal of the driver of the bus to stop at the checkpoint for routine checks of occupants.

“The Headquarters 33 Artillery Brigade wishes to inform the general public that on 28th May 2016, at about 2:14pm, the troops deployed at Panshanu check-point along Bauchi-Jos road, opened fire on a bus. “The bus drove dangerously through the checkpoint and refused to stop when flagged down on suspicion that it might be conveying terrorists or armed criminal elements, while approaching the check point. Regrettably, one person died and 3 others sustained injuries in the process.

Nairaland / General / OMG Bricklayer Stabs Friend To Death For Refusing To Help Him Charge His Phone by Georgeattah101(m): 1:21pm
bricklayer, Demola Wasiu, has been arrested by the Lagos State Police Command for allegedly killing his friend, Lekan Omotosho, 27. learnt that Wasiu, an indigene of Ede, Osun State, stabbed the Ogun State indigene in the armpit after he refused to charge his phone for him. The victim was said to have lost a lot of blood before he was rushed to the Lagos Island General Hospital, where he died on Friday. The suspect, who was arrested by policemen from the Lion Building division, was later transferred to the State Department of Criminal Investigation, Yaba. It was gathered that Omotosho was an apprentice in a mechanic workshop on Ajele Street, Lagos Island. He was said to have come to Lagos from Mowe, Ogun State, three months ago. His boss, Olayinka Oyinloye, said he had warned him against his friendship with Wasiu after he was arrested for a crime he knew nothing about. He said, “Just two months ago, the police arrested him while watching over Wasiu’s phone. The problem is that they usually smoke hemp in that place where they charge phones. Throughout the time of his detention, this so called friend did not check on him. “After I got him out on bail, I warned him against the friendship and cautioned him not to allow anybody put him in trouble. “On Thursday, Wasiu came again and asked him to help him charge his phone and watch over it. Lekan (Omotosho) refused. That was how he became angry and started fighting him.” Our correspondent was told that the suspect, who had a bottle of beer in his hand, smashed it on the floor and stabbed Omotosho in the armpit. Oyinloye said, “He fell down and started bleeding. People took him to a hospital, while they held Wasiu to prevent him from escaping. “They took Wasiu to the Lion Building Police Division around 11.30pm. I went to check on Lekan (Omotosho) in the hospital. Around 1am, he died. I went back to the station to report the development to the police. Some of the officers followed me to the hospital to confirm if he was actually dead.” At the SDCI, the suspect begged for forgiveness, saying he never intended to kill Omotosho. He said, “All I want is forgiveness. I did not mean to kill him. He was my friend and I have no reason to kill him. Please help me beg them to give me another chance. I have no father or mother to assist me.” It was learnt that the victim’s parents had arrived from Ogun State to recover the corpse from the police after autopsy. The Deputy Police Public Relations Officer, Damasus Ozoani, confirmed the incident, adding that investigations were ongoing. He said, “Yes, it happened. The suspect, Demola Wasiu, stabbed the victim, Lekan Omotosho, with a broken bottle. He was rushed to a hospital where he was confirmed dead. The matter is under investigation.”

Religion / Re: Jehovah's Witnesses: 17 Facts People Should Know About Them by zodiakzax: 1:15pm
hope you wunt mind if I check the scriptures you posted and give my own views, it will take time since the verses are many, and pls ill have to number each point in your post.

King James Version
Ps 102:25Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens are the work of thy hands.

King James Version
Heb 1:10And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands:

King James Version
Isa 48:13Mine hand also hath laid the foundation of the earth, and my right hand hath spanned the heavens: when I call unto them, they stand up together.

Do these verses mean that Jesus is the same person as God? I answer is no .
why do I say so?
reading from verse 1 oF Hebrews shows that it is God that was talking and that God was not talking about himself but talking to and about someone else. The attributes he asigned to the person he was talking go and about cannot be applied to God, in this case I'll refer to this God as Almighty God .

excerpts from previous verses of heb chapter one before we get to verse 10.
King James Version
Heb 1:1-4,9: God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,
2. Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his(a) Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;
3. Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;
4. Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.
9. Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God,(your god) hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.

What have I learnt from those verses, I've learnt that(pls correct me if Im wrong)
1. that the person (Jesus) being referred to in verse 10 is not the God that was talking in that verse.
2. that the person , Jesus in an heir, the almighty God is not an heir to no person.
3. The person being refered to in verse 10 sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, thus that person(Jesus) is not the Majesty on high, which indicates Jesus is not the most high!
4. the person being talked about in verse 10 has a God who anointed and promoted him!

With the above, I do not think that person is almighty God , who is said to be the creator.
but the question is still there, how can this person who god was talking about be said to have laid the foundation of the earth as God is said to have done. The answer lies in the following scriptures.

Ps 33:6By the word of Jehovah the heavens were made, And by the spirit of his mouth everything in them.

Col 1:15,16He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation;
16because by means of him all other things were created in the heavens and on the earth, the things visible and the things invisible, whether they are thrones or lordships or governments or authorities. All other things have been created through him and for him.

Pr 8:22, 27- 31: Jehovah produced me as the beginning of his way, The earliest of his achievements of long ago.
27 When he prepared the heavens, I was there; When he marked out the horizon on the surface of the waters,
28When he established the clouds above, When he founded the fountains of the deep,
29When he set a decree for the sea That its waters should not pass beyond his order, When he established the foundations of the earth,
30Then I was beside him as a master worker. I was the one he was especially fond of day by day; I rejoiced before him all the time;
31I rejoiced over his habitable earth, And I was especially fond of the sons of men.

This scriptures proves to me, and I hope it does so to you too that jehovah, who is called the almighty God is primarily responsible for creation, the power for the creation came from but he used his only begotten Son, who was his master worker, to do it .
That is why the apostles could rightly distinguish between Jesus and God and their roles in creation, they told us :

1Co 8:6there is actually to us one God, the Father, from whom all things are and we for him; and there is one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things are and we through him.

Joh 1:10He was in the world, and the world came into existence through him, but the world did not know him.

pls do not forget what the God talking in verse 10 of heb chapter was said to do with Jesus in verse 2.

King James Version
Ps 50:6And the heavens shall declare his righteousness: for God is judge himself. Selah.

King James Version
Ec 12:14For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.

1Ch 16:33At the same time let the trees of the forest shout joyfully before Jehovah, For he is coming to judge the earth.
* I could not get what I 4:6 is
King James Version
Re 20:12And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.

even without looking into these scriptures , the issue of judging had been already cleared by Jesus himself, the disciples and by God himself.

Joh 5:22For the Father judges no one at all, but he has entrusted all the judging to the Son,

King James Version
Joh 5:27[u]And hath given him authority to execute judgment also,[/u] because he is the Son of man.

Ac 10:42Also, he ordered us to preach to the people and to give a thorough witness that this is the one decreed by God to be judge of the living and the dead.

Ac 17:31Because he has set a day on which he purposes to judge the inhabited earth in righteousness by a man whom he has appointed, and he has provided a guarantee to all men by resurrecting him from the dead.”

2Co 5:10For we must all appear before the judgment seat of the Christ, so that each one may be repaid according to the things he has practiced while in the body, whether good or bad.

hope with the above scriptures you can see that Jesus is not God almighty cus he is judging!

will continue with the rest later ........pls bear with me .
am just very surprise at how low you have fallen, very sad, hmm look at the Hebrews 1 again and see if the writer was referring to God or to the Son?

Hebrews 1:8-10English Standard Version (ESV)

8 But of the Son he says,

“Your throne, O God, is forever and ever,
    the scepter of uprightness is the scepter of your kingdom.
9 You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
therefore God, your God, has anointed you
    with the oil of gladness beyond your companions.”
10 And,

“You, Lord, laid the foundation of the earth in the beginning,
    and the heavens are the work of your hands;

The statement is clearly about the Son. Either way if it was about the Father, you people wouldn't have changed verse 8 by saying " God is your throne forever" you have yet again change scripture for your own use. The original as it reads was " to the Son he says: thy throne,o God, is fore ever and ever. Which was taken from Psalm 45:6 (let's see how you can defend this) and your bible blashemeously changed it in Ps. 45:6 again, go and do your research and get the original Hebrew mss and verify yourself. Now if you still think that verse is talking about God then your people would have changed Lord in verse 10 as Jehovah as they've always been doing when Lord refers to God. So why didn't they use Jehovah in this statement but used Lord instead? That is because they knew who it was referring to and that person was Christ. Other than that they would have been admitting Christ is jehovah which is very clear in the statement. The "And" in vs 10 meant that the writer was still talking about the Son from vs 8, surely any learned person can see that.
