Am inviting everyone here to join CYFANN (Christian Youths For A New Nigeria) on WhatsApp.

https:///CDCbMAXTxzn4rRues2RXkF

As much as some people have tried in the past to put an end/ or save this nation called Nigeria in the past (e.g Fela, Gani Fawehinmi, Nnamdi KANU, Saro wiwa to mention just a few), they were either frustrated, arrested or killed. This is because the demonic forces holding down Nigeria is too strong and Nigeria cannot be freed by ANY HUMAN ABILITY.

1 SAM 2:9 SAYS He will keep the feet of his saints, and the wicked shall be silent in darkness; FOR BY STRENGTH SHALL NO MAN PREVAIL.

We can only silent the wicked in Nigeria by doing it the way of CHRIST.
Sowoore also tried to move for freedom of Nigerians recently bbut we all saw what the government did to him. They knew long before Sowoore that respite is coming to Nigerians and just like herod tried to kill the baby Jesus,they are doing everything to silence anybody that stands up to challenge their UNHIDDEN hatred and annihilation of Christians. Join us on WhatsApp today.

"There was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. 2 This man came to Jesus by night and said to Him, “Rabbi, we know that You are a teacher come from God; for no one can do these signs that You do unless God is with him.”

3 Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

4 Nicodemus said to Him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?”

5 Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. 6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7 Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ 8 The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.” {John 3:1-8 NKJV}

THANK YOU JESUS CHRIST; MY LORD FOR YOU HAVE CRUSHED/CRUCIFIED/DESTROYED/REMOVED MY FLESH {the spirit-man of Onyemaechi Chibuogwu Jude Emmanuel} and *REPLACED IT WITH YOUR LIFE {CHRIST JESUS LIFE AS GOD AND MAN JOINED TOGETHER}* living inside *my mortal body* by *YOUR GRACE through FAITH* every tick of time on this EARTH till ETERNITY. AMEN.
thus, this is my personal testimony/confession; no longer Paul's
"I{Onyemaechi Chibuogwu Jude Emmanuel} am *crucified with Christ Jesus*: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ Jesus *lives* inside my *mortal body*: and the life which I *now live in the flesh(my mortal body)* I live by the *faith of the Son of God*, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

21 I do not *frustrate/ignore/make-nonsense the grace of God*: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ Jesus is dead in vain." (Galatians 2:20-21)

Brethren, this can also become your testimony, if you are ready *to use the grace of Jesus Christ death on the cross of Calvary* for you(personally) whether you were born into Christianity or any other religion/background or baptized or ordained or operating in anointing or lay-person or rich or poor or sick or enjoying-momentary-pleasures e.t.c.
by
*giving your flesh(spirit-man/carnal-nature) willingly to Jesus Christ so that He will crush/crucify you to His Cross(His death swallow your flesh) *forever* and *in exchange* replace your *dead-spirit-man* with HIS LIFE and BEGIN TO LIVE HIS LIFESTYLE THROUGH YOU inside *your mortal-body on this earth till ETERNITY*

This can be done inside your heart or mouth NOW by saying
"Lord Jesus Christ, I *willingly surrender my flesh/spirit-man/carnal-nature* to be *crucified together with your flesh* on the Cross of Calvary and in exchange *replace it with your own life* as you begin to live through me by your grace through faith in every tick of time on this earth till eternity. Amen."
CONGRATULATIONS IF YOU HAVE ENTERED INTO THIS PROVISION OF GRACE IN CHRIST JESUS!!!

The next thing is DISCIPLESHIP (Communicating with JESUS CHRIST who is now THE LIFE inside you to know Him more, ask him what He wants to do through you at every point of your life and allow him to willingly manifest/live His lifestyle through your mortal-body which is called *growth* just like Jesus Christ while He was on earth *grew from baby-hood to adolescence to adulthood/full-maturity*). Jesus Christ from conception till death on Calvary to resurrection to ascension did not commit any sin hence discipleship is not a phase for *gradually-overcoming-sin* rather Christ Jesus growing into any aspect/field of life through you *without sin consistently till eternity*. All that *concerns flesh and its products has been destroyed once forever* thus "it is finished/destroyed" {John 19:30} at the same time; the new life of Christ "it is finished/established/manifested"
This new life of grace in Christ Jesus as a disciple grows/manifests in this earth *through regular-communication* inside our hearts/minds/body as well as regular personal bible studies and group bible studies *with a sound teacher(someone who teaches *Jesus Christ Crucified* as the *only interpretation* of *every letter, character, verses, chapters, books* of the *whole bible*) under the Holy Spirit(the Spirit of Jesus Christ now living inside you) influence
thus
"Then said Jesus to those *Jews which believed on him*, If you *continue in my word*, then *you are my disciples indeed*;

32 And *you shall know the truth*, and the *truth shall make you free*." {John 8:31-32}

and

"To whom God would make known what is the *riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles*; which is *Christ Jesus inside you, the hope of glory*:

28 Whom *we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom*; that *we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus*: Whereunto I also labour(work), striving according to his working(physical/visible *works of Grace/Christ Jesus/Holy Spirit/God-Head/Abbah-Father living inside me now* not *mere human efforts/strategies/methods/ideas/packaging/motivational-psychology/manipulative-ministry/brainwashing e.t.c.*), which works inside me now on this earth/mortal-body mightily/sufficiently" {Colossians 1:27-29}

if *any fruits of the flesh/spirit-man{"Now the works of the *flesh are manifest/known*, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,

20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,

21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things *shall not inherit the kingdom of God*." Gal.5:19-21} are still *found in your life* even if what your *flesh/spirit-man is producing is not shortlisted here, remember Paul said *such as these* whether you can hide it from the *eyes of the public* or it is known to the public eyes *on this earth at-all, whether you engage such thoughts/acts once in a day/week/month/year(s)/while e.t.c.*
my dear, *you have not offered your life/spirit-man/flesh for a complete exchange to Jesus Christ*
your *flesh is still alive inside you*
you might have *suppressed some of these sinful living for a while in a particular geographical location or you took a religious title or you relocate to another town/state/country*, it will *manifest and bring shame upon you*, it is only waiting patiently to manifest once the circumstance/environment that provokes the flesh is created/encountered.

Do not go in search of platforms/fellowships/individuals/teachings/messages that will help you to *stop manifesting a particular sinful lifestyle* (lies, gossip, pornography, masturbation, fornication, adultery, drug-addictions, unforgiveness, witch-craftery, occultsim, idolatry e.t.c) because these things are *only products of the flesh*, if you remove any of them, it will only take a while then the flesh/spirit-man will *produce it again* but if you *choose to use THE GRACE OF JESUS CHRIST to replace/exchange the flesh with the LIFE OF CHRIST JESUS at any point/phase/moment in your life* then *you are free from the flesh and its fruits(sin and sinful-passions) forever* thus "Jesus answered them, “Verily, verily, I say to you, *whoever commits sin is a slave of sin*. 35 And *a slave does not abide in the house(eternal-life) forever*, but *a son abides forever*. 36 Therefore *if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed*" (John 8:34-36)

any man/woman still *alive in the flesh until biological death or the second coming of Jesus Christ will spend eternity in hell-fire* whether you think/presume you are born-again/baptized/ordained, this is not *condemnation for anybody/legalism* rather THE ABSOLUTE TRUTH thus "That which is *born of the flesh is flesh*, and that which is *born of the Spirit is Spirit*" {John 3:6},
"It is the *SPIRIT that gives LIFE-ETERNAL; the *flesh gives nothing*: the *words(Gospel)* that I speak unto you, *they are SPIRIT*, and *they are LIFE*" (John 6:63)

"Enter *by the narrow gate*; for *wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction*, and there are *many who go in by it*. 14 Because *narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life*, and there are *few who find it*.

15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. 16 You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thorn-bushes or figs from thistles? 17 Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Therefore by their fruits you will know them.

21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 22 Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’

24 “Therefore *whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them*, I will *liken him to a wise man* who built his house on the rock: 25 and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.

26 “But *everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them*, will be like *a foolish man* who built his house on the sand: 27 and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall." {Matthew 7:13-27}

JESUS CHRIST lived on this earth for 33 years without *any sin* and achieving *his purpose on this earth* hence *any man or woman who has exchanged his flesh for the LIFE OF JESUS CHRIST* cannot commit any sin at all on this earth till eternity because IT IS CHRIST JESUS LIVING THROUGH HIM OR HER while in the community of human beings thus "And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that *He may abide with you forever*" (John 14:16),
"And He{Christ Jesus} will also confirm you to the end [keeping you strong and free of any accusation, so that you will be] blameless and beyond reproach in the day [of the return] of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 God is faithful [He is reliable, trustworthy and ever true to His promise—He can be depended on], and through Him you were called into fellowship with His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord." {1 Cor.1:8-9} and not in isolation{separated house/monastery} from other human beings
thus
"Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.

17 But if, while *we seek to be justified by Christ, we ourselves also are found sinners*, is therefore *Christ the minister/manifestor of sin? God forbid*.

18 For if I build again the things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor.

19 For I through the law am dead to the law, that I might live unto God." (Gal.2:16-19),

"For the *love of Christ Jesus controls and compels us*, because we have concluded this, that One died for all, therefore all died; 15 and He died for all, so that all those who live would no longer live for themselves, but for Him who died and was raised for their sake." (2 Cor.5:14-15),
"What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?

2 God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?

3 Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?

4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life." (Romans 6:1-4)

and
"If I had not come and spoken to them(human beings), they would have no sin, but now *they have no excuse for their sin*" (John 15:22)
There is no human being that has *excuse for allowing the flesh/spirit-man to be alive inside him/her while producing different sin, sinful-living, sinful-habits and sinful-passions* while living on this earth with a mortal-body then end-up in *eternal death*
because *JESUS CHRIST HAS GIVEN EVERY HUMAN BEING GRACE TO EXCHANGE THE FLESH WITH HIS OWN LIFE*
thus
"For the *grace of God has been revealed*, bringing *salvation to every human being*. 12 And this *grace instructs to turn from godless living and sinful pleasures*. and this same *grace instructs us how we should live in this evil world with wisdom(self-control), righteousness, and holy lives towards God*, 13 while we look forward with *hope to that wonderful day* when the *glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, will be revealed*. 14 He *gave his life to free us from every kind of sin, to cleanse us, and to make us his very own people, totally committed to doing good deeds*.

15 You must teach these things and encourage the believers to do them. You have the authority to correct them when necessary, so don’t let anyone disregard what you say." (Titus 2:11-15)

"Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, *let us have grace*, whereby we may *serve God acceptably with holiness and Godly fear*

29 For our God is a consuming fire" (Hebrews 12:28-29)

"Let us therefore *come boldly unto the throne of grace*, that we may *obtain mercy*, and *find grace to help in time of need(every tick of time on this earth)" (Hebrews 4:16)

if any sin/fleshly-fruits still manifests in your life and you think/presume that you are going to heaven or born-again or a believer or a Christian, do not loose hope, rather USE THE GRACE OF JESUS CHRIST INSIDE YOUR LIFE NOW for this *complete exchange of your flesh/spirit-man crucified with Christ Jesus and receive the whole new life of Christ Jesus* then allow Christ Jesus living in your mortal-body to grow into full maturity by grace through faith(discipleship).
Great Grace Brethren!!!

*You cannot sin away your salvation(eternal-life, redemption)*
this statement above is a wrong teaching
You never had salvation(eternal-life) at-all
*any type of sin* is a product of *the flesh(the spirit-man, I do not mean your skin or any part of your body)
for anyone who has believed in Jesus Christ *an exchange/replacement* has occurred
His/her *flesh* has been willingly surrendered to Jesus Christ to become *crucified/dead/destroyed forever*
and
a new life *Christ Jesus* has replaced *the dead flesh* which cannot produce *sin forever* whether biologically dead or alive
after this *exchange* then Christ Jesus begins to grow as He did in Mary's womb from *conception to maturity* in fulfilling God's will on earth for any aspect or field of life he wants to manifest in such a person through regular conversation/interaction/dialogue and bible studies; this is *discipleship*
it is a waste of time *trying to disciple the flesh*
Sin in a Christian is not *gradually removed*, it is done *once and forever* by the *crushing/crucifixion* of *mr-flesh who produces sin and anything in the appearance of sin*

it is also complete deceit to believe you are saved while sin is still manifesting in your *mortal-body* whether in the secret of your heart/room or in the public
it is also waste of energy trying to change 1-bad-habit while the *producer-Mr.flesh* is still alive and active inside you.
It is really heart-renting that so many of us on the street, bus, pulpit, altars are asking people *are you saved? have you given your life to Jesus Christ? have you received eternal life? while
*they are not saved either*
This is not to condemn anybody or for you to start crying rather the absolute truth flowing from his grace
All you need to do is *use the grace of Jesus Christ* by *surrendering your flesh into death with Jesus Christ crucifixion on the cross and receive in exchange the whole-life of Jesus Christ*
is it as easy as this? yes. because it is something Jesus has already done, you just need to enter into it by *believing this grace provision* and receiving *His Life* in exchange
then He begins to live in your mortal-body just like he lived on this earth through faith(direct internal consistent and continuous dialogue and revelational study of the Holy bible) thus
"My father inside me works and I work as he does" (John 5:17),
"Jesus gave them this answer: “Very truly I tell you, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does. 20 For the Father loves the Son and shows him all he does. Yes, and he will show him even greater works than these, so that you will be amazed." (John 5:19-20),
"Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you I do not speak on my own authority. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work. 11 Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the works themselves." (John 14:10-11)
just like he also worked in Paul which made him to *speak from his new internal life* thus
"I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. 21 I do not *set aside/frustrate* the grace of God, for if righteousness could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing" (Gal.2:20-21)
this same life that worked in paul also was at work in peter thus
"For God, who was at work in Peter as an apostle to the circumcised, was also at work in me as an apostle to the Gentiles"
Peter also confirms that anyone who engages in this *crucifixion of the flesh and receive in exchange the life of Christ* will have the same *internal life of faith in him/her*
thus
"From Simon Peter, a servant and apostle of Jesus Christ—

To those who through the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ *have been given a faith as precious/equal as ours*" (2 Peter 1:1)

Jesus told those who had *believed in him* "Jesus said to them, “I am telling you the truth: *everyone who sins is a slave of sin*. 35 A slave *does not belong to a family(household/membership of believers) permanently*, but a son belongs there forever. 36 If the Son sets you free, then you will be really free." (John 8:31-36)
and
"They would not have been guilty of sin if I had not come and spoken to them; as it is, *they(every human being whether you were born into Christianity or not) no longer have any excuse for their sin*" (John 15:22 GNT)
Do not *set-aside/frustrate* the grace of God inside your life now, allow it to have expression/effect now.

To those who through the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ *have been given a faith as precious/equal as ours*" (2 Peter 1:1)

Jesus told those who had *believed in him* "Jesus said to them, “I am telling you the truth: *everyone who sins is a slave of sin*. 35 A slave *does not belong to a family(household/membership of believers) permanently*, but a son belongs there forever. 36 If the Son sets you free, then you will be really free." (John 8:31-36)
and
"They would not have been guilty of sin if I had not come and spoken to them; as it is, *they(every human being whether you were born into Christianity or not) no longer have any excuse for their sin*" (John 15:22 GNT)
Do not *set-aside/frustrate* the grace of God inside your life now, allow it to have expression/effect now.

Great Grace Brethren!!!

Yes, we are saved by grace through faith in the finished works of Jesus Christ on Calvary however *grace is what God provides us without our effort/merit*, faith is our response/agreement that we have received what he provided us through his grace thus "now faith(at every tick of time on this earth, you agree/believe within your mind/brain/heart that *death has occurred to your flesh/personality/personal-ambitions/personal-desires/imaginations/ego crucified together with the flesh[divine-title] of Christ and at the same time agree/believe that Christ Jesus is living his life through you) is the *assurance/conviction* of what we hope for and evidence of things not seen" (Hebrews 11:1). with regards to grace I now know that Jesus Christ has died in my place to give me eternal-life/his life, faith is that I agree in my mind that he has *died for me hence my flesh has also died with his flesh on the cross* and also his new life has replaced my dead/crucified flesh and he is evidently/tangibly living through my mortal body the same life he lived on earth without sin at-all while achieving other results of receiving new converts and training followers on earth at the same time manifesting his God-head power over created things both in my spirit and external environments even through his written and spoken word(heart to heart communication) though for other people around this connection and communication with Him may be obscure because they are not tangible to them. This the mindset of faith for any Christian on this earth because Jesus Christ also lived by faith in his mortal flesh saying and doing what he saw the father saying or doing through him at each point of his earthly ministry through the leading of the Holy Spirit. This confirms that we are still standing on the faith of Jesus Christ finished works.
Re: The Christian Chatbox ( sticky) by ochibuogwu5: 10:10am On Aug 16, 2019
This teaching is truth because so many people are living on this *unadulterated-gospel by faith in Jesus Christ on this earth under the grace of the Holy Spirit* just like Paul confirmed that God continues to keep for himself 7000(though figurative as these type are present in every field of our society) men/women *without sin* in every age/generation in Romans 11:4-6 just like he showed Elijah 7000 men he kept without committing sin in the days Elijah climbed the mountain to tell Him(GOD) that there are no more holy people in the land of Israel apart from himself, even the person(Gbile Akanni) through whom God gave me this message testified of *having Christ live through him this life for over 40 years plus*, on my part I just got this message within some weeks now and I testify to it being the *sound gospel and beginning of real Christian existence* which has cleared the stake about *sin* and growth in every other aspect of living. for the Jesus Christ taught us "Unless you are born-again(this is the flesh-crucifixion and the Divine replacement of Christ new-life in a person who believes the gospel), you shall not inherit the kingdom of God" {John 3:1-5} going further He restates "whatever is born of the flesh is flesh(produces fruits of the flesh as we can see in Gal.5:19-21 and those who are of this products can never inherit the kingdom of God) and what is born of the Spirit is Spirit(fruits of the Holy Spirit as recorded in Gal.5:22-23 and those who produce these fruits do not have any law to obey because Christ Jesus inside them cannot manifest sin or anything in the appearance of sin while the law is given to *control those who have the capacity{the flesh} to manifest disobedience at the slightest provocation). as you stated if this is true, there is hardly anybody who is saved just like the apostles of Jesus however this is Jesus Christ response "for human being it is impossible but with God it is possible" {Matthew 19:26}. Faith in Jesus Christ Our God is not about psychological adjustment of the mind/brain about the certainty of who He is, what He has done or what He will do rather *A LIFE* that enters into a human person and begins to LIVE through that person's body once *he/she believes the gospel* with or without being taught(fully-conscious in your mind) about *this flesh crucifixion with Christ body and the Divine-replacement of the crucified-flesh with CHRIST JESUS LIFESTYLE* however such a person finds out that after *he/she accepted the gospel after encounter with a preacher directly or the voice of grace preaching the gospel inside our hearts every tick of time on this earth*, there is A LIFE LIVING THROUGH HIM/HER that *cannot produce sin or sinful-passions or worldly-engagements again with effortless ease even while achieving tangible results in any endeavor they find themselves* yet they still engage in a normal day to day activities of the society/world but they cannot explain this *crucifixion of their flesh in union with Christ, the Divine replacement of the crucified flesh with Christ-Life and the manifestation of Christ-Life consistently and continuously in an increasing measure as a baby advancing in age* which is the work of grace through faith under the influence of the Holy Spirit thus "the word/gospel/Jesus Christ that *has taken flesh* inside such a person is *full of grace and truth*" (John 1:14), "grace upon/for grace..."(John 1:16), "...faith for faith"(Romans 1:17). You just need to *believe the gospel with sincerity of heart* and this *LIFE BECOMES REAL/TANGIBLE/ALIVE* inside your mortal body while engaging your mortal-body in daily living of our society and the understanding of what *transpired internally* comes later as you see them unfold day after day in a consistent, continuous and increasing-manner; this is *a mystery yet a grace-lifestyle possible on this earth("To whom God would *make known* what is the riches of the glory of *this mystery among the Gentiles/unbelievers/pagans*; which is *Christ Jesus inside you, the hope of glory*:
28 Whom *we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man* in all wisdom; that we may *present every man perfect in Christ Jesus*" Colossians 1:27-28 kjv)* for any human being whether you were born into Christianity or not hence Peter exclaimed "now, I know that with God *there is no partiality/favoritism* rather in any religion/country/race/age that any human being *sincerely desires God*, God will reveal/pour out his whole-being into that person without reservation" (Acts.10:34-35)
Re: The Christian Chatbox ( sticky) by ochibuogwu5: 6:15am On Aug 17, 2019
"*All those who belong to Christ Jesus* 'have crucified' the *flesh* with its *passions and desires*.
25 If we live inside the Spirit of Christ Jesus now in our mortal-bodies, let the *rule of the Spirit * become our rule" {Gal.5:24-25}

let the Spirit of Christ Jesus now living inside our mortal bodies from now till eternity become the one who controls what we think, desire, do or imagine!!!
Re: The Christian Chatbox ( sticky) by ochibuogwu5: 8:48pm On Aug 17, 2019
For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God in JESUS MIGHTY NAME. AMEN.
Re: The Christian Chatbox ( sticky) by ochibuogwu5: 7:55am On Aug 19, 2019
my account has been facing some facebook limitations for a while that is why I did not go to attend to your questions on sacramental confessions, venial and mortal sin teachings and teachings on purgatory however I will deal with them gradually and present it here for balanced comprehension. I am currently in Lagos for a short-while if you need the complete 4-videos just call me. Jesus Christ was crucified in the *flesh once for all* hence anyone who engages in this *exchange of his crucified flesh with THE NEW-LIFE OF CHRIST JESUS* begins to have this LIFE MANIFEST FROM THE INSIDE TO THE OUTSIDE BY THE HOLY SPIRIT by grace through faith *once and for all as it concerns crucifying the flesh, it is not a gradual process for the flesh, the only thing that is
a gradual process in a Christian is the NEW-LIFE which replaced the crucified-flesh growing inside you in union with your old mortal-body just like Jesus Christ grew from conception till ascension while on this earth(this gradual process is called DISCIPLESHIP and it has nothing to do with any fleshly manifestations just like Jesus Christ was God and Man under the discipling of His Father who was living inside him while he was on earth in a mortal body yet there was no fleshly manifestations because the Spirit of His Father was manifesting the DIVINE WILL with ease at every particular time)* thus "the HOLY SPIRIT WILL BE WITH YOU FOREVER" (John 14:16), "His name shall be called JESUS, because he set his brothers and sisters free from their sins(flesh)" [Matthew 1:21], "if the Son sets YOU FREE(from the flesh), you are free indeed(once and forever)" [John 8:36]. That you have not come across people who manifest righteousness consistently does not mean that they do not exist unless you do not agree that Jesus lived on this earth without sin, the Holy Spirit is the one who said He will keep men/women *without sin by himself* in every age/generation (Malachi 1:11), Paul confirmed that in this gospel age there are 7000(figurative) undefiled men/women even in this gospel age (Romans 11:4-6), "Who(the Holy Spirit) shall also sustain you till the end, that you may be without sin/fault in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ, God is faithful(he will sustain you without sin/fault/flesh), by whom you were called unto the relationship/fellowship/lifestyle of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord" (1 Cor.1:8-9). This is a *faith/life of Christ Jesus reality* that is *tangible/livable* just entreat God for this crucifixion and exchange then watch out if you will not begin to experience it within your mortal body. Do not use any human being outside of you to check for the veracity of this truth rather *believe God's word for what it is; the word of God not some human thinking then engage it for yourself through believe then testify whether it is true or not. Another thing is that this does not mean that temptations will not come to your mind or surroundings/circumstances again, they will come but THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST JESUS NOW ALIVE inside you will push them away with or without your conscious effort thus "the power of God at work inside you both to will(desire/determine) and to do his good(holy) pleasures" (Phil.2:13) and "Now to him that is *able to keep you from falling and to present you faultless* before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, to the only wise God our Savior be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen."(Jude 1:24-25). This is faith reality, engage it "if we believe then we can manifest/experience its realities..." (Romans 16:26), "for the one who believes *all things are possible* for him" (Mark.11:23).
Re: The Christian Chatbox ( sticky) by ochibuogwu5: 8:16am On Aug 19, 2019
GRACEFUL Morning to YOU; UNMERITED FAVOR FROM GOD BOTH THE ONES YOU PRAYED FOR AND THE ONES YOU DID NOT PRAY FOR BUT THE HOLY SPIRIT who searches THE DEEP THINGS OF GOD, all human hearts and circumstances (1Cor. 2:10) knows you need them and will provide them for you in Jesus Name. Amen. Yes, because JESUS CHRIST has paid for EVERY thing we need in life for Holiness and Good living on this earth ("It is Finished" John 19:30, "By His Divine Power, God has given us all that concerns Godliness and good living by the knowledge of his goodness and glory" 2Pet. 1:3)

RHEMA DEVOTIONAL
YOU RESPONSIBLE FOR THE OUTCOME OF YOUR LIFE

Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. Galatians 6:7
I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life that both thou and thy seed may live. Deuteronomy 30:19

You are solely responsible for the outcome of your life. You are not what happen to you but rather what you do with what happen to you. Man is a free moral agent by creation empowered with capacity to make choice. No man’s choice can affect you except you adopt them as yours. God never forces his will on you except you agree with him that’s how powerful you are. But you must learn to you use this power of choice to your great advantage by surrendering it to the Holy Spirit so that He can guide your heart aright on every subject of life. The choice you make are free but the consequences are not.
You are a product of your choice not another’s. If you don’t like the outcome of your life, then sit down and examine critically your life choices. Even the devil or God only influence our lives based on our choice. It is always wrong with you not with God. God only confirms what you say and blesses what you do. So if you are not having enough result, look inwardly. Stop the blame game its will only make you lame.
Your choice determines your move and your move determines your result and result is the end of all insult.
Where you are today is your decision, if you don’t like it then make another decision.
Esau made a choice and sold his birthright thereby sold the blessings too unknowingly for him
Joseph chose to walk in God’s fear and refuse Potiphar’s wife offer to him and landed in jail and that qualified him for the throne.
The three Hebrew boys made a choice to burn rather than bow and they became promoted in the midst of the fire
Daniel purposed not to defile himself with the portion of meat offered to idols and that singled him for excellence and decorated him for the throne
Abraham chose to obeyed God and that turned him into a generational order of blessing
Noah chose to build an ark as commanded by God even when there are no sign of rian anywhere and that secured the life of his generation.
Take your life in your hand, make that choice today that will serve you for generation.

PLEASE, HELP ME TO LIVE – Bedridden 36-year-old shoe cobbler, Mr. Daudu Bamidele charles begs.

My name is Mr. Duadu Bamidele  a true son of Igarra, the headquarters of Akoko-Edo Local Government Area, Edo State, South-South Nigeria.

My ordeal began barely a year ago when I was diagnosed of leukemia otherwise called cancer of the blood which has grossly eaten up not only my body, but my meagre finance and that of my siblings and yet, the condition gets worst on daily basis.

Sad enough, my parents and siblings, out of their in-depth love for me, went to the extent of disposing off their personal effects, including landed property such that there is nothing left for them to sell in order to keep me alive.

That is why I am appealing to all spirited Nigerians and others all around the world to, please, come to my aid so that I can be flown to a leading US-based hospital for a comprehensive treatment and surgery at the cost of N7.5 million.

As you choose to save my life, may the Almighty God preserve your life in good health and interminable prosperity in Jesus’ name.

All donations should, please, be made payable to any of the following accounts:

Eco Bank

Account Name Bamidele charles
Account Number 8104119524
Bank Name Eco Bank

NO AMOUNT IS INSIGNIFICANT!

Thank you for choosing to save my life.  God bless you!

Topic: EATING WITH CHRIST BEGETS REVELATION KNOWLEDGE

Text: Luke 24: 30 & 31.

I have read the story of the Emmaus disciples, for quite a number of times. I guess most us us have done same at different times, as we read the word at home and in our church gatherings. Especially, during Easter celebrations.

But there is something striking about this story that keeps me longing for more of him. More time in His presence, eating at His table, every single day.

The two disciples travelling to the village of Emmaus could not recognise the master till they sat at meat with Him. They only recognised when he broke bread and gave to them to eat. Verse 31 says.." And their eyes were opened and they knew Him.."

Do you really know Him?

No matter how much we think we have known Him.

No matter how much we can quote the scriptures.

No matter how much we can cram and recite bible verses.

We need to know Him by daily eating with Him at His table.

When we do that daily, we will not only have a revelation knowledge of Him but we will see His life manifested in us. Remember, He lives in you. And His life in you is not to be suppressed but expressed.

To know Him and have His life manifested daily in you, you must spend time at His table.

It pains the Lord that we don't like spending time at His table.
We are always in a hurry to go out for our work and business without first seeking his face through personal study of His word and prayer. But that is where all our problems lie. We are indomie Christians who want everything about our spiritual life done in 2 minutes. While we spend most of our time doing soulish things. While we starve our spirit man the nourishment it needs to grow to the image of Christ.

This is why we are where we are today. We have become prayer collectors, rather than solution providers.

Paul the apostle, with all the revelation he had about Christ said "....that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection..." Philippians 3:10.

The Lord is asking us today
"Do you really know me"
Do you really want to know me?

If your answer to these questions is yes.

I encourage you to eat at His table daily. That is the surest way to know Him, and see His life manifested in you.

We have 24 hours in a day, but in the gathering of 100 Christians, if you ask "how many people had a personal bible study today?"

You will be surprised at the response. Not even 10 people spent time, studying the word on their own.

Most of us spend the 24 hours we have daily for ourselves, without giving at least one hour or 30 minutes to our creator.

Yet we want His blessings.

We don't want His face, we want his hand.

" We always pray "Lord, bless me".

We need to change our prayer to " Lord, I want to know you, show me your glory"

If we can seek His face, we will not only see His face but we will also see His hand in our lives and family.

Prayer:
Lord, I want to see your glory. I want to know you.

At 33, on 20th August 2019;

THANK YOU GOD(JESUS CHRIST) FOR SALVATION SO GREAT.

Thank You Jesus Christ for showing me your mercy, grace, love, miracles and MOST ESPECIALLY YOUR LIFE indwelling my mortal body having crucified my flesh(spirit-man/being) together with your flesh on the cross of Calvary as an Exchange/Divine-replacement.



I surrender by grace through faith my mortal-body to YOUR LIFE NOW INSIDE ME TO LIVE/MANIFEST AS IT PLEASES YOU TILL ETERNITY in JESUS NAME. AMEN.



I(Onyemaechi Chibuogwu Jude Emmanuel) am crucified with Christ Jesus, nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ lives inside me and the life which I now live in the flesh(mortal-body) I live by the *faith* of the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. I do not frustrate/set-aside/fail-to-use/make-nonsense the *grace of God*: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain {Gal.2:20-21}

GREAT GRACE BRETHREN!!!
Re: The Christian Chatbox ( sticky) by ochibuogwu5: 9:15am On Aug 22, 2019
Living inside the *grace of Jesus Christ Our God and Lord*, using His grace, depending upon His grace and seeking His grace every tick of time on this earth whether we have attained righteousness by faith or not is the *only secret* of *authentic existence for any human being on this earth*
thus "having received *a kingdom(THE LIFE OF JESUS CHRIST NOW LIVING and GROWING inside us in exchange for our flesh{spirit-man which produces sins like anger, revenge, fornication, lust, pornography, homosexuality, spiritual-pride, envy, hatred, self-righteousness e.t.c. I do not mean our-skin} crucified together with His flesh on the Cross of Calvary)* which is *unshakable(irremovable)*, let us have *grace* wherefore(through which) we may *serve God acceptably with Holiness and Godly-fear*, for our God is a consuming fire" (Hebrews 12:28-29)

"Let us approach the throne(enter into a consistent dialogue/communication with *Jesus Christ Life now LIVING/RESIDENT inside our hearts/brain/mind/mortal-body* not necessarily a physical Church building/structure/fellowship-with-other-brethren) of Gods grace with *boldness(the confidence that this new life of Christ Jesus living inside us now without sin assures/gives us without doubts/fear/guilt/reservations)* seeking mercy inorder to *receive grace* which will help us in times of need[every tick of time we spend on this earth is a time of need whether we have attained righteousness by faith or not, whether we have a pressing need currently or have sufficiency of provision]" (Hebrews 4:16)

Re: The Christian Chatbox ( sticky) by nwosukenneth4: 12:46pm On Aug 22, 2019
We can also approach the throne of Gods grace whether we judge ourselves to be sinners or righteous or other people perceive us to be saved or condemned based upon the *truth that Jesus Christ Our God and Lord loves every human being and died for every human being on the cross of Calvary regardless of our different religious background* in order to save the whole world and make every human being *a member of God's family* (John 3:16-18).
Another thing very important is that as a human being God wants and desires to talk/chat/discuss/dialogue with you/me *every tick of time(there is no gist-mate like Him who will engage you in a serious dialogue, discussion, conversations and revelations without disrupting your hourly/moment-to-moment/daily engagements) on this earth no matter your joys/sorrows/pleasures/fears/anxieties/sins/hurts/depressions even now just talk to Him....
"Jesus Christ; My Life, good-morning"
believe He is listening...
pause for His response...
Do not be scared whether another fowl-spirit will speak to you or your mind; in the spiritual realm, every spirit responds when you all its name(nomenclature), Jesus Christ, Son of God crucified on the cross for the redemption of mankind responds/replies when you all him, devil replies when you all him....hence mean what you say and say what you mean.
Ask Him questions about anything you do not understand in your life, in the world or other people's life...
He speaks in silence, words and tangible/visible signs most importantly He releases into your whole body *the inner assurance* that "I m doing something in your life right now, when it manifests, it will surprise you" (Habbakuk 1:5)
"It is settled/finished/manifested/destroyed" (John 19:30)
He an use other scriptures or things around you which you fix your gaze/mind upon to *teach/instruct/guide/console/answer/attend to our chats/dialogue/conversations....
*approach the throne of God's grace now and every tick of time on this earth"

Re: The Christian Chatbox ( sticky) by ochibuogwu5: 2:30pm On Aug 22, 2019
External sign of any man/woman who has BELIEVED IN JESUS CHRIST:
"And you know that He was manifested to take away our sins, and in Him there is no sin. 6 Whoever abides in Him does not sin. Whoever sins has neither seen Him nor known Him.

7 Little children, let no one deceive you. He who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous. 8 He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil. 9 Whoever has been born of God does not sin, for His seed remains in him; and he cannot sin, because he has been born of God.

10 In this the children of God and the children of the devil are manifest: Whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is he who does not love his brother." (1 John 3:5-10 NKJV)
Re: The Christian Chatbox ( sticky) by ochibuogwu5: 5:31pm On Aug 22, 2019
What produced genuine disciples/followers/believers of Jesus Christ not *highest populated assemblies* thus
"And daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ.

6 And in those days, when the number of the *disciples was multiplied*..." {Acts 5:42-6:1}

"And the *word of God increased*; and the *number of the disciples multiplied in Jerusalem greatly*; and a great company of *the priests were obedient to the faith*." (Acts.6:7)
Re: The Christian Chatbox ( sticky) by nwosukenneth4: 9:56am On Aug 23, 2019
"And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment." (1 John 3:23 KJV)

So many of us(preachers) may have tried to convince or impose it upon you that you are saved/have believed in Jesus Christ actually through our write-ups, preaching, sacraments, church-programs, church-service, religious titles e.t.c or you are forcing yourself to presume that you are saved/believer/Christian/disciple of Jesus Christ.

if you are saved, there is *only one person* who will convince you that you are a believer/saved; THE SPIRIT OF THE LIFE(CHRIST JESUS) that has now entered into you *replacing your crucified flesh together with his flesh on the cross of Calvary*
thus "the Spirit of God inside God now dwelling inside you will bear witness to us that we are children of God" (Romans 8:16)
and He does this by manifesting these fruits through us effortlessly
"And you know that He was manifested to take away our sins, and in Him there is no sin. 6 Whoever abides(dwells/believes) in Him does not sin. Whoever sins has neither seen Him nor known Him.

7 Little children, let no one deceive you. He who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous. 8 He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil. 9 Whoever has been born of God does not sin, for His seed remains in him; and he cannot sin, because he has been born of God.

10 In this the children of God and the children of the devil are manifest: Whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is he who does not love his brother."
(1 John 3:5-10 NKJV)

another fruit;

"Then Jesus said to those *Jews who believed Him*, “If you abide/continue in My word*, you are *My disciples indeed*. 32 And you shall *know the truth, and the truth shall make you free*.”

33 They answered Him, “We are Abraham’s descendants, and have never been in bondage to anyone. How can You say, ‘You will be made free’?”

34 Jesus answered them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, *whoever commits sin is a slave of sin*. 35 And *a slave does not abide in the house forever*, but *a son abides forever*. 36 Therefore *if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed*." (John 8:31-36 NKJV)

another fruit
"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law." (Gal.5:22-23)

another fruit
"Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, 3 as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, 4 by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
5 But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, 6 to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, 7 to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love. 8 For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 For he who lacks these things is shortsighted, even to blindness, and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins.

10 Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and election sure, for if you do these things you will never stumble; 11 for so an entrance will be supplied to you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ." (2 Peter 1:2-11 NKJV)

The *end-point/purpose-in-view* of the Gospel of Jesus Christ is not to make human beings *mere-converts/church-goers/members of my denomination/loyalist/pets/sycophants/brain-washed-personnel e.t.c
rather
DISCIPLES OF JESUS CHRIST, persons who carry inside their mortal bodies the LIFE OF JESUS CHRIST IN FULLNESS, people who have the same *stock(personality/quality/nature)* of Jesus Christ and can *transfer this same life to other human being* as they go about their day to day normal living effortlessly without pretense, hypocrisy, packaging both in their secret and public lifestyle.
if our preaching, lifestyle, ministration, actions, e.t.c does not move human beings from who they were to believers of the gospel of Jesus Christ and to disciples(who can make others disciples of Jesus Christ too) then we have not allowed THE LIFE OF JESUS CHRIST now living/dwelling inside us *permanently till eternity* to express Himself completely hence we have not done any work for God at all because this is what God sent us to do...
"Go and make every human being in the whole world that you encounter become my disciples" (Matthew 28:18-20) not *by force/coercion/imposition/intimidation rather in Union with the HOLY SPIRIT(the Spirit alone whose GRACE can *turn men to become GODS-PERMANENT-DWELLING/RESIDENCE/ABODE*) and that is what will bring loss to us as disciples as 1 Corinthian.3:13-15 highlighted(this passage is not referring to purgatory at all or realm where people who claimed to believe the gospel but continued in small/big sin will make satisfaction for their sins and later enter heaven). The fire that those who shared the gospel which could not raise men to discipleship is the *pain/hurt* of seeing those who they presumed that are believers/saved/Christians but died in the flesh which earned them *eternal damnation*("...those who reject this gospel has condemned themselves already" John 3:16-18,..."there is no EXCUSE for THEIR SIN" John 15:22) just like 1 John 5:16-17 stated that those who commit sin *until biological death* should not be prayed for because *no amount/style/method of prayers can save them from eternal damnation* however those disciples will be saved themselves because they have the LIFE OF CHRIST JESUS inside them. We have learnt and shared some wrong teachings and doctrines however it is not too late to correct ourselves sine we are still alive and the Holy Spirit is showing us mercy and giving us grace to re-right our wrongs.
There is a state or realm called *Hades* where those who died without hearing the gospel one-on-one from a preacher/write-up/message after the Resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead and did not use the internal grace of God inserted into every human being(Titus 2:11-12) to search for their Creator while they were on earth rather lived unrighteous lifestyle. As we study and pray the LIFE OF CHRIST JESUS dwelling inside us will also share this truth about *Hades* with all of us.
bear in mind this word of Jesus Christ in-order to *test every teaching you hear from me or any other preacher of the gospel*
thus
"Jesus answered them and said, “My doctrine is not Mine, but His who sent Me. 17 If anyone wills to do His will, he shall know concerning the doctrine, whether it is from God or whether I speak on My own authority. 18 He who speaks from himself seeks his own glory; but He who seeks the glory of the One who sent Him is true, and no unrighteousness is in Him" (John 7:16-18)
May the Holy Spirit continue to grant us more understanding of his written-word in Jesus Name. Amen.
Great Grace Brethren!!!

*MESSAGE TO MINISTERS OF THE GOSPEL*

*IF WE ARE DEPENDING ON THIS BABYLONIAN TRANSACTIONS GOING ON ON OUR PULPITS TODAY, IT MEANS THAT BEFORE OUR EYES , WE WILL LOSE AFRICA TO ISLAM IN OUR TIME…*

In one of the Assemblies of God churches, in Aba District, where my late dad pastored in the 1980s, I remember when a young man came very early in the morning and told my father:

“Pastor, what did I do to you? Why do you hate me so much? I have been born again for almost 1 year and I have won many people to Christ, but why have you not recommended me to join others to go for missions work in the northern States of the country… ”

His singlet was torn… And with his zeal, he was crying profusely…

My father did not know what to say…
The young man kept crying:” Pastor, why are you doing this to me… Why are you doing this to me? ”

My father told him: “Nna, I know very well that you want to serve God… But you are the only son of your mother and your father is late… If anything happens to you, who will look after your mother and younger ones?…

The boy started crying the more…
“Pastor, I am the only son and yet I was an arm robber… I am the only son, yet, I was attending meetings in the midnight with native doctors, where many of friends could not wake up alive after diabolically fortifying ourselves against police bullets… ”

” Pastor, what would have happened to my mother if I had died in one of those armed robbery attacks? Who would have taken care of her? If I risked my life when I was serving Satan, why will I not risk it now that I am serving Jesus Christ? ”

My father was speechless for almost 30minutes… And it was not long, we saw tears rolling down his eyes…
He held the young man and both of them were crying together…
How can I forget such scenes that God allowed to play out before my eyes? …

My father recommended him to join some missionaries that came in the area for missions work…
The day he was leaving with them, the mother and his younger ones were crying… Knowing that they might not see him again, both live or dead… But I can still remember that excitement on his face…

Lord, how can I forget?

Brother, let us go to our Bible schools and listen to the conversation of those young men and women who have joined ministry and you will know that many of them have no single passion for the lost…

They are just getting ready to rent halls in the city where they will be rolling out posters and handbills, laying greedy hands on people, collecting offering and tithe…
That’s all in their hearts…

Congratulations for your big auditorium…
I am happy for your 10th time services…
But if heaven cannot find such men in your church,…

Young men and women who will say: “Lets go to that village and tell them that Jesus is no more in the grave… Even If we don’t have to come back alive… Let it be so…”

If you don’t have such calibre of members among your congregation, then, sir, with due respect, it’s a big shame! .. This end time agenda has no need of you and your kind!

A Muslim suicide bomber doesn’t need tithe and offering to carry out a bloody assignment, in defence of his faith …
They don’t need adverts or media stunts..

But here, we have young men who are in the pulpit, being driven by tithe, offering and honorarium…. If there is no 5star hotel reservation, they will not honour the invitation to preach …

And yet, they are General Overseers…
Overseeing passionless men and women who are like them…

Where as, their mates in Islam has burnt their school certificates, refused juicy contracts, abandoned wonderful jobs and everyday they are sleeping in the bush and starving for months, receiving trainings, how to carry out terrorist attacks, all in defence of belief…

And we are here looking for churches where they will use convoy to come and pick us up from the airport…
And you wonder why people feel like vomiting when they hear them calling you a voice in the land…

A voice because you went to a program and stole committed members from your host church and you came back and gave them positions in the choir, sowing different uniforms for them every Sunday…

None of them can quote any scripture…
They have not gone for evangelism for any day, after many years of following you…
All of them were members you stole and now you are using juju to keep them from running away…
And they are calling you a voice in the land! … What a ridicule! What a noise!

Brother, if this is the generation that will usher in a move of God in our days, then, those who have not forgotten what they saw in the church in the 80s and 90s must not keep quiet in a time like this…

The greatest hindrance of revival in our time is not Islam…
The pulpit in our time is the greatest enemy of the expected move of God in our days…

If not for the decline of truth on the pulpits in our time, long ago, we would have seen what we saw in the days of our fathers…
And now we are blaming Muslim fanatics, who are defending with their lives what they believe in…

When else are we going to see young men from our churches, after hearing our messages, getting so angry in the spirit that they make up their minds to convert 10 unbelievers to Christianity every month month?
And the next place you will see them will be in camps or mountains, preparing, praying for Power?

But how can we hear such when the only thing we teach them is about how to be rich and how to suspect detect enemies?

I am tired of hearing testimonies of miracle jobs some of our ladies slept with company directors to get…
I am tired of seeing car dedications my brothers used fraudulent businesses to buy…
When are we going to start dedicating converted souls on our Sunday mornings?
Lord, where are all the men that saw what we saw in the days of our fathers?
This is not the time to keep quiet…
This is not the time to care about who likes or hates you…
If there is a time to beg for pulpit, soldier, it is not in a time like this!

No pulpit hosted John the Baptist…
They preached against him… That He was old fashioned… And that he was envying them who were running 10 times services…

That because he doesn’t get any like or comment on his Facebook wall, that he is jealous of them that have huge online followership…
That because he is not anointed and that is why nobody was hosting him in their churches…

But brother, when his time came and he began to roar from the wilderness, those demonic General Overseers who were using marine powers to run ministry knew that indeed, in every generation, God has a breed He is preparing …

Yes, they knew that “there was a man sent from God”…

Man of God, if you were sent from God, why are you allowing yourself to be influenced by men who were ‘sent from Bible schools’ ?

Some of the men you are competing with in ministry were ‘sent from demonic covens in some parts of Africa’ … If we came from God, let us look more for God… He will soon show up…

You are almost getting to the time when members of many ‘mega’ churches will be secretly and openly coming to you, to hear this gospel from your mouth… Because they would have gotten tired of fake testimonies that leaves them powerless and very vulnerable…

Men who have not bowed to baal are very few in our days…
Men who have not sold out their souls for mammon are rare to find now that we are here…
God depends on you for this end time work… Why are you bothered because someone somewhere is calling you names online? …

Churches are everywhere around us, yet, there is a spiritual famine in Africa…
The power of the gospel is suffering bankruptcy in our time…
This is not the same gospel the apostles preached…
Something has happened to the Word of God in our mouths…

We are only showing the form of godliness, but hell has hijacked the power thereof…
And in our carnality, we are celebrating strange Fires…
Polluted Fire!
Moribund Fire!

But brother, I know that God will never leave Africa this way!
If the pulpit has failed, then,, He will bypass us and go down to the pews…
And raise people for Himself…

If our pews have become so frozen, He will go outside… He will look for drunkards and prostitutes….
He will get hold of witches and wizards…
And those arm robbers on the highways,
He will Clean them up and fill them up with Himself and use them mightily in this end time…

Yes, if those who came out from Bible schools are now using their certificates to raise only funds, God will bypass them and use those who has not gone to Bible schools…

This is the most critical time since the world began…
Islam is preparing to take over nations,…
They are putting funds together which they will use to buy churches and pay their staff off…

Brother, in few years from now, if there is no genuine revival, many of our members today would have become Muslims…
You will see many pastors who will convert their churches into mosques, for a huge financial reward…

That time is not far…
Has it not even started?
When a pastor is collecting powers to grow his church from a Muslim native doctor, is that not handing over the Fire to the children of the bond woman?

The days we are in is terrible…
God knows and that is why He is raising an army that will stand to defend the gospel that was handed over to us, even if they have to lose everything for it…

That young man came back from the missions field, after a year, and later joined the Bible school… Became a pastor and God used him to win communities for Jesus…

Before my eyes, I saw God using him to sack evil spirits out from villages…
His name became a terror in that area, to the point that deities began to complain about how his presence in the community had rendered them powerless… Halaluya !

Those are the kind of testimonies we were hearing everyday in the days of our fathers that we want to be hearing again in our time…
But alas, here is Ichabod !

Imagine if every church in every community can boast of 10 of such members!
Imagine when many of our followers would have gotten broken enough, by God, that they don’t mind what they lose again for God’s sake…

Terrorists will no more be bombing our churches.. Because they would have known that already our churches are filled with people who are ready to die, anytime for the gospel …

You don’t have to waste your bomb on a man who is already dead!

But, why they will keep threatening to kill us is because they know that we love our cars and landed properties more than the CHRIST we say that died for us…

Prophet Mohammed was not killed on the Cross shamefully, yet, they can die for him publicly… What would have happened if their prophet Mohammed was crucified on the cross?

But where are the men and women who claims that Jesus died for them?

Oh Sister, it is time to take our Christian life to another level….
It is time to get ‘fanatical’ about this Kingdom thing…

Enough of the prayer topics of: “God give me this and do that for me!”
This weekend, take your friends to the next Street and preach the gospel…
Next week, continue with it…

Why are we ashamed to tell people about the Man that conquered the grave?
Why can’t we preach about the man that created the heaven and the earth?…

Mohammed did not do any single miracle, but his followers are dying for him…
He did not raise anybody from the dead…
He died and that was his end…
Yet, they can give everything to spread his belief…

How can we be ashamed of Jesus that spoke to the storm and their was peace?
He opened the blind eyes…
He interrupted funerals and raised the dead back to life…

Is He not enough to tell people about?
Did He not do enough to make you let everybody that knows you know that you are not ashamed of the gospel?

When will you be done with hiding from your friends when you want to speak in tongues, so that they will not laugh at you?
Brother, why are you ashamed of identifying with the Man who is the hope of the whole world?
As for me, I am done with religion, till I die..
I cannot stand Christianity by church sticker alone any more …
Jesus did not die for you to only be attending choir rehearsals and changing uniforms every Sunday….

I hope God is not looking at you from heaven now and regretting why He did not let those people that died of accident to replace you since you are useless to Him on earth…

Many in the hospital now, with few days to live are begging and crying, if God can give them a little more time, that they will preach this gospel under the rain and sun… And they mean it…

Brother, you that is healthy, what will God be saying about you when He sees that they are begging you to go to church?
The time is early enough to ask God for mercy and for Him to revive His walk in your life. ..

God is looking for people that will risk their lives for Him in our time…
Let it not be that He is preparing someone who is at the point of death in the hospital bed to come and replace you….
This is scary… But it is a serious matter!

Have you not played so much with the opportunities God has given you?
How much longer do we have to be in sin for grace to abound?

The Holy Spirit is speaking to you now…
He is reminding you of your distance from God…
Imagine if you had died in your sins yesterday morning…

You would have gone to hell, and stay there, from now till the next 2billion years… And yet, that will be just the beginning…

Sister, don’t be locked out of grace further… Don’t postpone any longer the hour of your salvation…

Right now, hearken to the voice of mercy …
And where you are sitting is good enough to kneel down and ask God for a revival … I am very sure that He will clean you up and give you a new….

Lord, let there be revival of true soul winning and genuine christian living In Jesus Mighty Name.”

"Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. 32 And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

33 They answered Him, “We are Abraham’s descendants, and have never been in bondage to anyone. How can You say, ‘You will be made free’?”

34 Jesus answered them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin. 35 And a slave does not abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever. 36 Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed." (John 8:31-36 NKJV)

"For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?

37 Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

38 Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels." {Mark 8:36-38 KJV}
