There is no pain greater than the pain of JESUS; THE SON OF GOD WHO IS GOD AND EQUAL TO GOD yet HIS FATHER COMMANDED HIM TO CARRY OUR SIN, STRIP HIM BARE NAKED ON THE CROSS PUBLICLY AND SENT HIM INTO HELL-FIRE FOR ETERNITY not because of His own sins but because of your sin, my sin and the sins of the whole world
and you are saying *WHY ME ?*
When you are in pain ask Jesus how painful was hell-fire for eternity and for a sin He did not commit then you will hear FROM HIM

Please, I hope you have gotten a bible studies notebook where you write out all the lessons from your daily personal bible studies and prayer-words which you drafted also from the passage that you studied ?
Please go and bring your bible studies notebook out from where you kept it. Dust it and start reading and writing all the lessons and prayer-words into them again starting from John 1:1-5 for your first day of study, then John 1:6-10 for the next day, then John 1:11-17 for the next; making progress in such manner as we seek to grow into full maturity in Christ Jesus Crucified; OUR NEW LIFE!!!
Writing helps you to *engrave the word of God into your mind, soul, spirit, emotions, desires and body* hence when sinful-appearances or thoughts or suggestions comes up in your mind *these engraved word of God will cast them down to the obedience of Christ and the correct knowledge of the GOD-HEAD (Father, Son and the Holy Spirit)* which makes your resistance to sin very strong and effortless(2 Corinthians 10:3-6).
I pray that the Holy Spirit will help us to continue growing consistently and progressively in this new creation-life of Christ Jesus Crucified; OUR NEW LIFE, daily personal bible studies and quiet-time with HIM in Jesus name. Amen.
Great Grace, I pray upon you Brethren in Jesus name. Amen.

Journey mercy upon each human being traveling within this festive season, I pray in Jesus name. Amen.
However, traveling and celebrating within this festive season should not *tamper with our quiet-time and personal daily bible studies with the Holy Spirit*
Because we even need to *be sensitive to the voice of the Holy Spirit much more now that we are travelling and celebrating so that we do not return to sin or sinful-appearances* because of our desire to *impress our family members or village people* while *forgetting our new creation-life in Christ Jesus Crucified*
We also need to be more *conscious with the voice of the Holy Spirit now than ever so that we will know how to travel, which vehicles to take and places not to visit to avoid car-accidents, kidnappers and other evil circumstances*
Please I encourage you to *pray those biblical and Holy Spirit prayers that we drafted from our daily personal bible studies and quiet-time with the Holy Spirit and even obey the previous instructions of the Holy Spirit *personally and directly given to us for festive seasons like these* and you can also check my Facebook timeline(Chibuogwu Onyemaechi) for new testament prayers and declare them while we are inside our bus or traveling-route and sing praises inside your heart/mind/brain and with your mouth until we get to our home destination*
May the mercy of God obtained from the throne of God's grace be released upon our whole being (spirit, soul and body) while we travel and throughout this festive season so that we may find grace to *serve God acceptably with holiness and Godly fear all the days of our lives* through the unlimited manifestations of His Holy Spirit Power in Jesus name. Amen.
May the Holy Spirit sustain our whole being (spirit, soul and body) pure, holy, spotless, undefiled, without-sin throughout this festive season so that *even if the trumpet of biological death or rapture of the Saints should sound within this period, you/I will not be rejected from joining the heavenly citizens* in Jesus name. Amen.
Great Grace Brethren!!!

THIS IS THE REASON FOR THE BIRTH OF JESUS CHRIST; THE SON OF GOD IN HUMAN NATURE:
"Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed?
2 For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.
3 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.
8 He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.
9 And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.
10 Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in his hand.
11 He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.
12 Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors." (Isaiah 53:1-12 KJV)

"You should have as little desire for this world as a dead person does. Your real life is in heaven with Christ and God. 4 And when Christ who is our real life comes back again, you will shine with him and share in all his glories." (Colossians 3:3-4 TLB)

For those who think their efforts to disprove the existence of God and human salvation only found by faith in Christ Jesus Crucified alone is *making any headway* :
In my little understanding, I perceive that they *think* that by *trying to disprove something whether it is real or not they will prove that they are correct* and others *are wrong*.
One thing so spectacular about *the reality and the existence of God is that He existed in eternity without any form before He spoke* hence even *His silence makes His reality and existence more concrete* than *the noise of the devil/demons inside human bodies or in the spiritual realm trying to disprove His reality and existence*.
Even lucifer while in Heaven *only saw a dimension out of an endless dimensions of God* hence he was desiring to *become what He never comprehended completely*.
We continue pray for those who have not accepted God's mercy, grace, love and salvation in Christ Jesus Crucified because they are in great pain even though they might be putting-up appearances *but as often as we engage in evangelism(one-on-one on the streets, social media inbox and chatrooms, text messages, voice and video call e.t.c.) with these people, the Holy Spirit reveals the torment of these souls *yearning to be set free from the veil of sin, curses, the flesh, death, hell-fire, demonic-manipulations, devils-stronghold and darkness*.
May the mercy obtained from the throne of God's grace be released upon all of us in this generation so that we may find grace to collaborate with salvation in Christ alone and serve God acceptably with holiness and Godly fear all the days of our lives in Jesus name. Amen.

"No human being can please God without faith, for whoever comes to God must have faith that God exists and rewards those who seek him diligently" (Hebrews 11:6)
"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." (Hebrews 11:1)
"So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God." (Romans 10:17)
*hearing is a continuous present tense*;
when was the last time, you/I read our bible personally to hear directly from God for ourselves not just to fulfil routine or to hear from another person/preacher *as a fresh release of HIS EVER NEW LIFE* ?
"Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old.
19 Behold, *I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it?* I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert." (Isaiah 43:18-19 KJV)
"For when we are in union with Christ Jesus, neither circumcision nor the lack of it makes any difference at all; what matters is faith that works through love." (Galatians 5:6 GNT)

The Sun will Shine Again
There are times in our lives that everything may seem to be over or almost over. But there is an assurance, better days are always ahead. It is only failures that believe the present is all there is to be. Better days are always ahead. When Jesus came into the earth, he faced many challenges, his birth lead to the death of hundreds of kids, his presence shook the city and the leaders were against him, he was eventually nailed on the cross. But despite all these, in no moment was it the end for Jesus. for every passing moment, he edges closer to the glory. Irrespective of what is happening right now, the coming days will be better than now.
“For there is hope for a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again, and that its shoots will not cease. Job 14:6
So my brethren, whatever you may be going through, the sun will rise again tomorrow. You’ll live once more, you will laugh again, you will rise again and you will be you again. One thing that killed people faster than any other thing is self-condemnation. Although, you might be right to condemn yourself, but God has transferred our condemnations on Christ Jesus. He knew no sin, but he was made sin for us. He was condemned for us, and so he gave us freedom.
We often lose hope because we’re so short sighted of how glorious tomorrow can be, of how awesome the sun is going to shine tomorrow. But the sun will rise again tomorrow. No matter what you’re passing through, better days are ahead. Jesus encountered difficulties of every sort, but despite that, till today, His better day’s keeps coming (because more souls are daily won to Him). All you need is the one(Jesus) who died for you, and how to sustain Him. Your Sun will shine again.
God has spoken and still speaks to many without their knowledge, but this short video will give you insights into How God has spoken and is speaking to you See through this link:
To accept Christ, Pray: Lord Jesus, I want to know you personally. Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins. I open the door of my life and receive you as my Savior and Lord. Thank you for forgiving me of my sins and giving me eternal life. Take control of my life. Make me the kind of person you want me to be. Amen.

There is an excellent pastor-teacher at https://ichthys.com. He is the one who trained me and is supporting my preparation as a pastor-teacher. His name is Professor Robert Luginbill. There is another one too at www.bibleacademyonline.com whose name is Pastor-Teacher Curtis Omo. Both mean are excellent pastor-teachers. They will help you understand the Bible as a whole.
You can look at my posts at https://nairaland.com/ihedinobi3/posts or you could look at my threads at https://nairaland.com/ihedinobi3 to have some idea whether their teaching is what you are looking for. What I teach here on Nairaland is what I learned from Ichthys.
I recommend that you keep an open Bible close because you'll find very much in your studies under either ministry that will surprise you. The main difference between the two ministries is that Ichthys is a text-based ministry while Bible Academy is a video-based one. You will find some audios on Ichthys and there is an ongoing project to turn all the major studies there into mp3 format, but it is essentially a text-based ministry. Likewise, you will find some works in text on Bible Academy, but it is really a video-based ministry.

TRANSFORMED INTO THE FULL STATURE OF CHRIST JESUS CRUCIFIED:
"Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
18 But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord." (2 Corinthians 3:17-18 KJV)
"Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty (emancipation from bondage, freedom).
18 And all of us, as with unveiled face, [because we] continued to behold [in the Word of God] as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are constantly being transfigured into His very own image in ever increasing splendor and from one degree of glory to another; [for this comes] from the Lord [Who is] the Spirit."
(2 Corinthians 3:17-18 AMPC)
I pray that your whole being(soul, spirit, and body) will be transformed into the real image of Christ Jesus Crucified from one degree of glory to a higher degree of glory as you study his word, believe his word, obey his word, preach his word, apply his word, use his word, meditate upon his word, use only his word as a standard for your thoughts, decisions and actions all the days of your life on this earth in Jesus name. Amen.
|Re: The Christian Chatbox ( sticky) by ochibuogwu5: 2:33am On Jan 01|
May the God of all Glory and Grace who has brought us into this new year of 2021 release His mercy obtained from His throne of grace upon all of us so that we may find grace to serve HIM acceptably with holiness and Godly fear all the days of our earthly existence in Jesus name. Amen. Happy New Year Brethren!!!
|Re: The Christian Chatbox ( sticky) by ochibuogwu5: 5:31pm On Jan 01|
I HAVE BIRTHED AND I WILL CARRY IT TO THE END:
"....I have given birth, will I not take care of what I have birthed..."(Isaiah 46: 4)
I have given birth to your life inside 2021, will I not be able to take care of you throughout this 2021 ?
I have given birth to you in righteousness and holiness according to my own standard by grace through faith in Jesus Christ Crucified; My Son. Will I not be able to *sustain and uphold you in the righteousness and holiness that is acceptable to my own standard till eternity* ?
All these while that you have been rising and falling back into sin, sinful-lifestyle and sinful-appearances *yet you still desire to serve me acceptably with holiness and Godly fear all the days of your earthly existence*, it is I; the LORD JESUS CHRIST CRUCIFIED who has *been carrying you in my womb by arousing such desires of genuine repentance from sin and complete obedience to my perfect-will*
Do not give up on the struggles of *your humanity to perfectly submit to the control of The New Creation-life of Christ Jesus Crucified now at work inside and around you* both to will and to do of the good pleasures of the GOD-HEAD (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) through your mortal-body *by mercy and grace through faith (obedience) to the teachings and lifestyle of Jesus Christ Crucified*
Are you still asking the reason why you should repent from sin and receive salvation by grace through faith in Jesus Christ Crucified ?
Your life(spirit, soul and body) was *created before the foundation of the world* not on the day our parents had sexual intimacy, inside the womb of God (inside Jesus Christ Crucified) to be fulfilled and complete *only when you begin to manifest holiness and righteousness in love(God's love not human love)* hence staying *outside of God by rejecting salvation through faith in Jesus Christ Crucified alone* is contradicting *the foundation/core of your existence whether in the physical and spiritual realm* which will make you to be *existing in this earth but not alive in the seen and unseen realm* this makes you to be a victim of circumstances created by both the seen and unseen spirits that affects this earthly sphere. This makes you to keep pursuing and running after what the seen and unseen spirits that affects this earth releases into the atmosphere yet *the space within your soul is still not satisfied* rather *your emptiness, hunger and internal frustrations increases* because it is only GOD(ELOHIM) who created that space *within us* hence only *HIM* can enter into it and *completely fill it without leaving any space* thus "but whoever drinks of the water that I give, shall *never thirst again*...." (John 4:14)
Please surrender your own personal will, efforts, intelligence, righteousness, religious-titles, religions, ideologies, philosophies, witchcraftery, idolatry, magic-enchantments, sinful-lifestyle, sinful-businesses, sinful-appearances, sinful-relationships and all unbelief in the gospel of Jesus Christ Crucified then confess to Jesus inside your heart and with your mouth anywhere you are currently; that you have sinned by the sin of Adam, parental inherited sins and by your own sin especially rejecting salvation in Christ Jesus Crucified alone all these while.....
Ask HIM to forgive and cleanse you from sin and the sin-nature (the flesh)
Accept and declare HIM(JESUS CHRIST CRUCIFIED) as the Savior and Lord of your soul.
Ask HIM to fill you with His Holy Spirit, sustain and uphold you by His mercy and grace through obedience to His teachings and lifestyle now alive within your mortal-body even as He uses you to draw other human beings to repentance from sin and salvation in HIM.
You can construct the wordings of these faith-resolution and new creation-life in Christ Jesus Crucified as the Holy Spirit gives you utterance as long as you accept that you are a sinner and you accept Jesus death on the Cross as your own atonement for sin before the eyes of God and His resurrection from death as your new-life and position in God to replace your crucified/dead-old-self on the Cross with Jesus by grace through faith then *you submit fresh every second by faith (absolute obedience) to the Holy Spirit who manifest the lifestyle of Jesus personality through your mortal-body* such that *you live as He lived while in a human body on earth* (1 John 2:6)
You can pray thus:
Father, I come to you now because I have accepted that I am a sinner, I confess my sin(inherited and personal) to you and I ask you to wash me with the atoning blood of Jesus your Son on the Cross of Calvary, I accept and declare that Jesus Christ Crucified is my Lord and Saviour because I have accepted HIM and HIS Finished Works on the Cross as my own death with HIM to sin and alive with HIM before your eyes in His resurrection, fill me with your Holy Spirit Power and use me to draw other human beings from sin/the flesh/darkness into repentance and salvation in Christ Jesus Crucified alone each new second of my earthly existence in Jesus name. Amen.
If you have believed previously and backslidden, please do not postpone repentance from sin and confess to Jesus Christ Crucified now in your heart and mouth, He will forgive *all your sins and its consequences*, break you out of addictions and bring you to a latter glory that is better than your previous level of intimacy before you fell into sin or present lukewarmness thus "The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the Lord of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the Lord of hosts." (Haggai 2:9)
If you are still faithful but you are considering, giving-up on your faith-walk with Jesus Christ Crucified, please ask the Holy Spirit to refill you with His Holy Spirit baptism of fire and presence thus "But *you shall receive power, after that the Holy Spirit is come upon you*: and *you shall be witnesses unto me* both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth." (Acts 1:8 )
If you are still on fire with the Holy Spirit, continue growing in the grace and knowledge of Our Lord Jesus Christ Crucified through daily consistent and progressive bible studies and quiet-time with the Holy Spirit. If is by singing in human language or singing in tongues or praying in human language or praying in tongues or a combination of all of them that you get easily connected and committed into spending more quality time INSIDE YOUR HEART AND MOUTH with God in such a way that you will forget about hunger for food, water or engaging in any other activity until you have completed your quiet-time with God, use such activities to start and get very deep into HIS PRESENCE each moment of your personal prayers or group prayers until you are completely exhausted thus "Grow in the grace and the knowledge of Our Lord Jesus Christ" (2 Peter 3:18)
Great Grace Brethren!!!!

|Re: The Christian Chatbox ( sticky) by bixton(m): 8:23pm On Jan 04|
It's good to desire such.
But to get it's full benefits is first for one to make Jesus Christ his Lord and personal Saviour by forsaking your sins.
Make it a habit of reading the Scriptures daily( giving time for study and meditation). Keep a note book by your side to jot down your thoughts as you are led by the Holy Spirit.
Make your desires towards seeking the knowledge and understanding of the word by prayers.
Attend a Church that preaches the pure word of God.
Make yourself useful by volunteering to work in the church but you should be focused about maintaining your personal relationship with God through Christ Jesus.
The best teacher of the word is the Holy Spirit though that of a man is to guide you.
Standing on the right foundation is paramount to holding on to your faith and retaining the free gift of salvation.
If you have any challengees as to the word you can seek for assistance here.
Find books written by proven men of God to read and to boost your knowledge.

BEING BORN-AGAIN IN CHRIST JESUS CRUCIFIED:
Born-again is *not a title* or *position* rather *a lifestyle*
" *You have been regenerated (born again),* not from a mortal origin (seed, sperm), *but from one that is immortal by the ever living and lasting(incorruptible) Word of God.*" (1 Peter 1:23)
It is only those who *do not commit sin in their hearts, mind, soul, thoughts, imaginations, desires, and bodies* each second are *born-again* in the eyes of God just like Jesus Christ walked on the earth each second without sin thus
" *Whoever* says he abides in Him ought [as a personal debt] to walk and conduct himself in the same way in which He walked and conducted Himself." (1 John 2:6)
"For *even to this were you called [it is inseparable from your vocation].* For Christ also suffered for you, *leaving you [His personal] example, so that you should follow in His footsteps.* He was *guilty of no sin, neither was deceit (guile) ever found on His lips.* When He *was reviled and insulted,* He *did not revile or offer insult in return*; [when] He *was abused and suffered,* He *made no threats [of vengeance];* but He *trusted [Himself and everything] to Him Who judges fairly*. He personally bore our sins in His [own] body on the tree [as on an altar and offered Himself on it], *that we might die (cease to exist) to sin and live to righteousness.* By His wounds you have been healed. For you were going astray like [so many] sheep, but *now you have come back to the Shepherd and Guardian (the Bishop) of your souls*." (1 Peter 2:21-25 ampc)
"Jesus answered them, I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, *Whoever commits and practices sin is the slave of sin.* Now *a slave does not remain in a household(eternal life in Christ Jesus Crucified) permanently (forever);* the son [of the house] does remain forever. So *if the Son liberates you [makes you free men], then you are really and unquestionably free.*" (John 8:34-36 AMPC)
Do you want the Son of God; Jesus Christ Crucified to set you free unquestionably ?
|Re: The Christian Chatbox ( sticky) by ochibuogwu5: 5:20pm On Jan 05|
"Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;
32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." (John 8:31-32)

Discernment and Decisions by faith in Christ Jesus Crucified:
Here are some events that teaches us how to take discern and take decisions by faith in Jesus Christ Crucified....
"Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.
19 Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privily.
20 But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.
21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins."
(Matthew 1:18-21 KJV)
Those human being who are just/righteous in the eyes of God *operate their lives by faith* and when they *resolve to take any decision or action based upon faith in Jesus Christ Crucified* but it is not in agreement with the *perfect-will of God*, the Holy Spirit *instantly prompts them within or causes something to happen that will stop them from engaging in such decision or actions* in the same vain when a human being who lives by faith does not know what to do or decide or even forget what they ought to do the Holy Spirit *instantly prompts them within to remind them on what to decide or engage or causes something to happen that will lead them on the correct path*
Hence submit your lifestyle to the control of the Holy Spirit and you will never be overwhelmed by the certainty or fear of the unknown or mistakes.
Here is another example of taking actions and decisions by faith under the submission of the HOLY SPIRIT.....
"And in those days Peter stood up in the midst of the disciples (altogether the number of names was about a hundred and twenty), and said, 16 “Men and brethren, this Scripture had to be fulfilled, which the Holy Spirit spoke before by the mouth of David concerning Judas, who became a guide to those who arrested Jesus; 17 for he was numbered with us and obtained a part in this ministry.”
18 (Now this man purchased a field with the wages of iniquity; and falling headlong, he burst open in the middle and all his entrails gushed out. 19 And it became known to all those dwelling in Jerusalem; so that field is called in their own language, Akel Dama, that is, Field of Blood.)
20 “For it is written in the Book of Psalms:
‘Let his dwelling place be desolate,
And let no one live in it’;
‘Let another take his office.’
21 “Therefore, of these men who have accompanied us all the time that the Lord Jesus went in and out among us, 22 beginning from the baptism of John to that day when He was taken up from us, one of these must become a witness with us of His resurrection.”
23 And they proposed two: Joseph called Barsabas, who was surnamed Justus, and Matthias. 24 And they prayed and said, “You, O Lord, who know the hearts of all, show which of these two You have chosen 25 to take part in this ministry and apostleship from which Judas by transgression fell, that he might go to his own place.” 26 And they cast their lots, and the lot fell on Matthias. And he was numbered with the eleven apostles." (Acts 1:15-26 NKJV)
Going further the Holy Spirit gives us a confirmation that He as our Teacher will not allow us to walk in the wrong path even though every circumstance around us seems so dark and confusing thus:
"And though the Lord gives you
The bread of adversity and the water of affliction,
Yet your teachers will not be moved into a corner anymore,
But your eyes shall see your teachers.
21 Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying,
“This is the way, walk in it,”
Whenever you turn to the right hand
Or whenever you turn to the left." (Isaiah 30:20-21 NKJV)
Great Grace Brethren!!!
