Touch

For Damilare Babalola… I woke up empty today. Engulfed by my desires and seemingly insurmountable needs I have somehow lost sight of what it means to be alive. My struggle is endless. Each day drags me relentlessly to the house of my tormentor. With his steely gaze on my back he begins to flog me without flinching or remorse. But there is hope… Soon I will leave this job. Soon I will build my house. Soon I will become a source of joy and no longer the harbinger of sadness. Soon … because this morning I will touch the hem of His robe. I will place my withering fingers on the fringes of his shawl and I know I will be made whole. “And his disciples said unto him (brusquely, almost with sarcasm), thou seest the multitude thronging thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me?” – Mark 5:31 WHAT A QUESTION! You cannot ignore the audacity of such. Look at

Abba Father

Hello guys, this is not a song review. I decided to listen REPEATEDLY and CONSCIOUSLY to EVERY SONG from my favourite gospel group of ALL TIME! – HILLSONG. I will write articles, poems and stories themed about the song titles as led by the Spirit. LET US HAVE FUN! (It would be nice if you downloaded the track and listened as you read) HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ORIFUNKE !!!! Song: Abba, Father Abba, Father, how I love you. Strong hands guide me. A voice that soothes me and I’m coming to your open arms again. The more I know you, the more I love you. The more I need to worship and adore you. Yes I’m coming to your open arms again. Abba Father you know I love you. You know I need to worship and adore you. I’m coming to your steadfast love again. Yes I’m running to your steadfast love again. How I love you. How I adore you.

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

STAND

[The Book of Joel] What the locust swarm has left the great locusts have eaten; what the great locusts have left the young locusts have eaten; what the young locusts have left other locusts have eaten. Yesterday I lit a candle and hid it under my bed – National Association of Fools Carefully tear away the tinfoil of pretence and stare into the blackness that is life. Do you realize that many people are tottering on the edge of despair? Most people who walk the streets are merely zombies with manicured nails and sharply pressed attires. There is no life in us anymore. We try to do it ourselves. We hop from seminar to spa, from hospital to horoscopes. We will try anything and everything in an effort to salvage a bit of sanity. Total annihilation is the word for the day. Life takes on the appearance of a post-apocalyptic landscape without the green leaf of hope. The swarming locusts
