My fellow humans there is breaking news from the realm of truth: There is no light at the end of the tunnel. -_- and no! Nepa hasn’t taken it. YOU are the Light of the World. Get off your butt-throne and switch on. When kids at a zoo poke fun at a lion, taunting it and all. There’s no need to defend the lion. Simply open the cage.! Ah!! I kid! I kid! I dey play ooo. Imagine salt complaining that food is tasteless! Meanwhile it sits idly in its container. Just imagine!!! How una go step upon serpents and scorpion while seated in front of television sets and movie screens?? In fact ordinary cockroach sends 10-year old Christians binding and casting! Kilode! But guys! Why don’t you let your light shine? This little light of mine, I’m gonna let

Jesus: The Covenant

Act One, Scene One Matthew {1:1} The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham. No matter how you look at it God is a God of covenants. In keeping with His nature He establishes covenants with the sons of me (Noah, Abraham, Moses, David etc). In David and Abraham we have the two vital covenants: The Covenant of Kings and the Covenant of Fathers. Jesus takes his reference point from these two covenants. The Covenant of Fathers and Sons Abraham was given a promise. That his seed (sons) would outnumber the stars and the sand. It was a covenant that covered the heavens (stars) and earth (sand). It was both terrestrial and celestial in nature. God promised to bless his descendants and make them His own special people – in return, Abraham was to remain faithful to God and to serve as a channel through which God’s blessings could flow to the rest

It is written

He knew the word by study. It wasn’t because He had instructed the writers by His SPIRIT. Rather as with all things that involved humanity, the Messiah had known through study. He had learnt how to walk and talk. He didn’t leap out of Mary’s womb screaming words of Rhema and Repentance. He didn’t grab Joseph’s beard and yell “Were you there when I carved the earth’s foundations?” Jesus responded to temptation with the word. He knew it, He spoke it and in the right context too. Know your scriptures, speak them. #la130 — Eloho (@Eloxie) October 2, 2013 Jesus learnt and applied. I imagine he had the same kind of childhood as Timothy who from a child studied the scriptures. And thus the very words that prophesied about Him became the foundation of his life. We see evidence of this when we look at the baptism. John was reluctant to baptise the Christ, but Jesus who had studied scripture

In the creation He displays his brilliance. In the Incarnation He displays his power. However in the resurrection brilliance and power collide. Mad maths takes on another form in Jesus. One rose trampled on the ground buds and becomes the first of flowers.

And I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh… For He is the firstborn among many …

Matthew 1:21

Matthew 1:21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. If the name of the Lord is a strong tower then it is the responsibility of the Christian to understand what that name means. Man’s bane is sin. The bible says that the wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23). We must understand that there is sin (the noun, the nature, the principle) and sin (the verb, the actions). Sin as a principle is at work on the earth. The entire earth is cursed to suffer entropy. Science has taken it upon herself to proffer solutions to this. We have plastic surgery to hide our facial lapses, medicine to slow or even eliminate ageing and so on. Yet they all fail. For the wages of sin is death. Thus Christ came as heaven’s wager – God’s gambit, the hidden joker in the stack of cards.
