A Million Suns

You stand eternal; the uncreated One who knows no end. The starry wonders, the vast expanses are bound to your command. You shine like a million suns ablaze, wrapped in eternal light and praise. Jesus the First, the Last, the Bright, the Morning Star  You spoke creation into existence, life and all we are. Beyond all measure… the universe is an echo of your power (Everlasting, Never ending). You will reign forevermore. You are holy. You are worthy, Lord of all 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!

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

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.

The Traveler

When I first put my hand down to write I imagined that He would speak to me softly: in soft tones and gentle timbres discharging the words like the slow trickle of a quiet stream. Picking my pen and dusting the cobwebs that had gathered in my mind, I conceived a number of stories that would delight you and take you on that long-awaited journey through vistas replete with a myriad of beautiful creatures and adventure. I imagined as a writer is wont to that every tale would give off a graceful vibe that would entertain the mind and quiet the raging of your soul. But He rejected them refusing to allow me venture on a quest to impress you. Then He spoke. His words raged like the wind with fiery outbursts interspersed within. Just as thunder His voice boomed large and loud from within me quizzing my every move. He riddled me with a barrage of questions. You would
