Lord…..Can You Keep A Secret?...My Conversation With God

God:     Hmmmmm!!! Depends.

Me:       What? Depends? Depends on what? I thought you are God, you know everything and I can tell      
             you ANYTHING, why are you now saying it depends?

God:     Well, if you know you can tell me anything and I know everything, then why are you asking me if I
             can keep a secret?

Me:       Oh, I see…my mistake.

God:     (Smiles). OK Son. I’m listening......

And God Said....And God Saw

Throughout the book of Genesis, Chapter 1, verses 2-29, we learnt that God our Father, the Creator, always declares the things that do not exist BEFORE they exist. The two famous lines throughout the first chapter of Genesis are    "And God said", "And God saw"
Until you DECLARE a thing, it cannot begin to take on life and therefore you cannot POSSESS it, because what you did not give life to simply cannot come into being. Your declaration is a way of actually breathing life and starting the pregnancy of a new life which brings about the birth of that new life.  Notice that God's confession of his expectation always comes before the actual possession or creation of that thing, and since you came from him, as he made you in his image and in his likeness, then it goes without saying that before you experience the physical manifestation of any desire, you must confess or declare it. I know you've all heard this before and so I'm not going to tell you what you already know, but  what I want to talk about today is

The Eye Of The Storm

Wikipedia defined the Eye of  a storm as a roughly circular area and typically 30–65 km (20–40 miles) in  diameter. The eye is a region of mostly calm weather found at the center of strong tropical cyclones. It is surrounded by the eyewall, a ring of towering thunderstorms where the most severe weather of a cyclone occurs. Every human being, as long as you are still among the living goes through the storms of life. Some, once in a while, some continuously until delivered, but nobody

The Power Of Diligence

Today, I have this impression in my heart to talk about diligence. I do not know why, but I have learnt never to disobey my spirit once I have clarity of instruction. Obviously, there's somebody out there that need this today and can use this today, I definitely can use it too. It is said that

The Power Within -The Conclusion

Friends, we have come to not-the-end of the article of  "The Power Within", but a conclusion of these articles. This site is about continous development of the body, soul and spirit so we can be all that God has called us to be. If you have not read the previous articles, please do so, that way you can have full understanding of the concepts been discussed. Now, let's get into the heart of our discussion.

If you ask anybody this question, “who are you?” most likely they will begin to define themselves by their names or their professions. That is not who they are or who you are, that is what you are identified by in this physical world. Truly, we are all the same, not different from one another.

The Power Within - What Is It? And Who Are You? Part 3

In part 2 of these series, I explained the creative nature of a human and how the human comprises of 3 entities called the body, the soul and the spirit. We talked about the function of each entity and how they affect the overall living of the human. I also gave some experiments to be done by the readers. Now if you have not been following these series from the beginning, I will highly recommend that you read them so you can have a full understanding of what is been discussed. I will list them here in order from the post that started this particular series to the part 2 of these series.

1.      Do You Really Want To Change?
2.      The Power Within - What Is It? And Who Are You?
3.      The Power Within - What Is It? And Who Are You? Part 2

In part 2, I ended the post by narrating a story to help the reader fully understand what was been discussed, but I did not finish the story, I will now re-narrate the story from the beginning......

The Power Within - What Is It? And Who Are You? Part 2

Hello Again Friends:

We are now on the second part of learning about who we really are. In my last posting, I talked about how you are made up of a body, a soul and a spirit, and I also explained how you are the soul that lives in a body and posseses the power of God which is a spirit that lives in you. The power of God is a spirit and it lives within each and every human being created. That's why for a person, who knows who he or she really is, nothing is impossible. I concluded by saying that every "failure" and every "success", you are experiencing now, you have created and manifested. You are not wrong, you are not right, you just are. If at this point in life you don't like your experiences, then it's time to change them. Question now is how?

The Power Within – What Is It? And Who Are you?

Hello Again Friends:

Last week, I started talking about how we can be a new and different person by the renewing of our minds. I used Romans 12: 1-2 as my reference point, I also promised that I would discuss about who you really are, the wonderful inner workings of your body, soul and spirit. You will gain massive understanding of who you really are and the marvelous things that you can do. You will learn the power that you have residing within you....seriously, and discover how to make God’s storehouse, which is the universe you live in cooperate, with you in all that you do and desire and thereby manifest great things in your life to the glory of God.

Really!!!....You Gotta Let It Go Or Else....

Hello again my dear friends. Last week, I shared with you how I was taught by God to address issues and how to resolve them. I hope you found it very useful and adaptable to your area. If you have not read that post, I'll encourage you to read it by clicking here. I also promised to continue to reveal some of the things I have learnt through revelations about the power that God himself embedded within us. This week, I will lay the ground work of explaining, as it was revealed to me, who we really are. What we are to God and what powers we possess and what your body parts are actually created to do in order to bring creative and manifested results in your life.

And like this Transparent Butterfly, we will bring beauty to the world around us.............To see pictures of this God's wonderful creation.....,

Help!!! My Garden Is Full Of Weeds. Huh?, Not Wheats......Weeds.

It was a sunny and awesome Saturday morning. A day that the Lord has made. The noise of lawn mowers and other garden motor equipments brought me out into my garden. I knew my gardener was around. I was looking at my lawn, infested with weeds and as I was trying to pull one out, I heard him say. "Mr. Caleb, these weeds always come out around this time of the year, they are hard to root out sometimes unless you have prepared the ground before they sprouted up or unless you are willing to root them out by hand"  What do you mean they are hard to uproot?,

God!!!! Why Did You Say That? That's Not Fair.

It was 2:53 AM. That's 2:53 AM people, I don't know about you, but that is not a good time for the noise of the pounding rain on my bedroom window to wake me up. So I reluctantly sat up on the edge of the bed wondering what kind of rain this is, in the middle of the summer. As I was pondering over this, I decided to check on my two teenage daughters to make sure they are sleeping. Sometimes those kids stay up all night doing nothing but talk especially on Friday nights when there won't be school next day. So as I was leaving their room and coming back downstairs, I had this nudging that says go to your office, don't go back to sleep.

"All Great Achievements Require Time" - Maya Angelou

Everybody always see great achievements. What most do not see is the time it took to achieve the greatness. The time, toils and tears, the price paid by the great achiever, how many times the celebrated achiever has failed in his quest for greatness. If you desire greatness, you must know that it will take time. Nothing worthwhile is achieved overnight or instantly. The mighty oak tree takes years to grow from a seed. All great achievers have this in common. They recognize that their mission will take time and with time comes adversity, failures, struggles, but they know that with perseverance and consistent action, they will prevail and they do prevail.

What?, God Did Not Answer? What Did You Tell Him!!!

A man once asked God "Why is it that you never help me with my problems when I tell you in prayer?" God simply and lovingly said back to him, "Son, because you never tell me exactly what you DESIRE, you only tell me your PROBLEMS."

The MAIN REASON why people don't get help from above when they pray is because they simply don't follow God's rules.

Do Natural Laws Affect You?....

Why is the world orderly and not chaotic?, why do the tides rise and fall?, why does a person grows older and not younger?, why does the moon have four phases?, why does water quench thirst?, why does a person falls down and not up?

It is called an Underlying Order. A set of Natural Laws that hold the universe in place. Now, Natural Law or The Law Of Nature is a law whose content is set by nature and therefore, has validity everywhere and this CANNOT be broken.

And God Said....

Life as we know it has always been fascinating. It is always amazing to see how human beings who are created equal by the same God can vary so much in how they live their lives. They all have the same capacity, ability and powers to do just about anything they desire to do, yet some do amazing things, some do nothing and while some just watch. In the words of an internet marketer, Stephen Pierce. He asked, “Are you waiting to lose or are you playing to win?”
What an amazing question. This is a question that actually apply to life in general, and not in the business arena alone.

How To Truly Love Jesus........

July 25th, happens to be my birthday. As I was lying on my bed in the middle of the night thanking God for his mercies and love and all that he has done for me, The Lord revealed to me through a vision, a truth that we all know but seem to take for granted. You and I both know that we love the Lord and that he loves us, but I realized today that until I see him face to face, there's no way I can comprehend the depth of his love for you or I, no matter how much we try.

Why did I say that? A few people know that I was a staunch muslim growing up. I knew the Quran, prayed 5 times a day. I knew Jesus Christ as a prophet, as we were taught, not as the SON OF GOD.

I ridiculed anybody that believes otherwise. In other words I despised Christ even with my 5 times-a-day prayers.

Eventually Jesus, despite my foolishness and stupidity, made me to see his love and enabled me to receive it. I have never been the same since then; but what is my point you asked?

That day I had a heavenly vision, seeing myself standing at the foot of the cross, not worshipping Jesus, but hurling insult at him and this scared the living daylight out of me. I asked the Lord what this meant and the gentle, loving voice of the master through the Holy Spirit calmed my fears and simply said.......

You are now realizing the truth of what I did.

In the vision, I, like everyone else, hurled insult at Jesus while he was dying for me on the cross and instead of the loving, gentle Lamb of God to say forget him, he is not worth dying for and hurl insult back at me, he lovingly looked at me from the cross, smiled and then looked up at the Father and simply said "Father forgive him, for he knows not what he does"

Jesus prayed for me. I saw him prayed for me. ON THE CROSS. While he was physically dying.

In that vision, I broke down and cried, for I realized that no love can be greater than this? Not only did he lay his life down for me because he loves me, but he did that knowing before hand that while he will be dying for me, I will despise him, which I did; but that never stopped him from loving me and completing my purchase from the god of this world by his blood and reconciling me back to the Father, into his glorious and marvelous love and light.

I guiltyly asked Jesus. What do you want from me?

He said "Nothing"

I said but I don't know how to love you back seeing what you have done for me.

He said "Go and do likewise. Love all as I have loved you. Ask for nothing in return, but tell them that I love them the same and they should love others like I love them." I asked, That's all? He answered  "That's all. If you love others like I have loved you, then you have learnt to love me the way I desired that you love me."

Ha! I finally see, after all these years, that all my Lord wants me to do is to be just like him and show others how to be like him........simply by loving unconditionally, without prejudice, without judgement.

May the love of God be shed abroad in your heart as you read this and that you'll allow yourself to love like he does.

This is the best birthday gift I have ever received....and happy to share with all, directly from the Master himself. Jesus Christ.

Blessed Assurance, Jesus is Mine and yours. And the story continues.......

Why and How Marriages Fails

Somebody once said that marriage is a bed of roses, obviously that person must be a monk who has never been married before. Yes Marriage CAN be a bed of roses, but we must understand how marriage becomes a bed of roses. What most do not understand is that marriage in itself is a bed of thorns that look like roses at the begining. Most couples do not realize that when they eventually fuse together to become one in marriage,
they willl begin to see that both of them had brought something into the marriage that they had not thought of. Most couples may not admit to this, but then they begin to become aware of things about their partner that they had not seen in courtship before.

Those are the thorns that are begining to show up. Now marriage is funny in the sense that it was actually created to be something that will make both parties work. Everytime they work together on their marriage, they are actually plucking out the thorn from the bed and each time the thorn is plucked out, a rose then grows in its place and with time, all the thorns are plucked out and that's how marriages become beds of roses. How long it takes totally depends on what the couple is willing to do.

There are many reasons why marriages fail these days, but we are going to look at a few that are very common. We will look at lack of work on the marriage between the 2 partners, pride, selfiness, control, manipulation, laziness and discontentment. We'll break these down and see how it affects the marriage itself and what God says about these things. Remember, he's the author of marriages and his ways are not our ways. He has a great sense of humor. He uses marriages to develop his children to be strong, tolerant, loving forgiving, accepting and all the virtues of God the father himself.

Now let's talk about each one of those thorns that CAN and WILL turn to ROSES once we know how.

A: Lack of Work: A marriage is like a garden, it must be tended to. A garden that is not worked will eventually grow weeds that will choke the life out of the beautiful flowers and plants in the garden, thereby making it a lifeless, abandoned and ugly looking garden. Marriage needs work also. If you don’t work your marriage, it is bound to fail; it is not that God does not love you or that he does not bless your marriage. It is an agreement between you and God. God has blessed your marriage spiritually, and you through the knowledge that your marriage has been blessed will begin to work through that spiritual blessing to manifest the fruits of that blessing which are marital bliss, peace, love, fruitfulness, multiplication, abundance, joy and so on. The flip side of it is that if you don’t fulfill your side of the agreement with God, that is, you don’t work your marriage, then you begin to get “weeds” in that marriage. These weeds are the exact opposite of the fruits of the blessing. There’s no joy, couples do not trust each other, they suspect each other of every kind of evil imaginable, they constantly live in lack, they become fruitless, hatred exists, they are always at each other’s throat, there is no peace and so on. God dwells in a marriage that both couples have determined and agreed to work on together. When God dwells in that marriage, then he can perform his oaths, his side of the agreement of the blessing. You must understand that the moment you agree with your spouse that both of you will faithfully work your marriage, then you have created a space in your marriage for God to dwell in. Your agreement with each other is the spiritual space that God desires and requires to dwell in so that he can perform his own side of the agreement. Do not be deceived, everything in life requires work. The reason God actually created man was WORK. Read your bible. In Genesis Chapter 2, verse 5, it is written that “…….and there was no man to till the ground” The very first thing God did after he created man was to give a job. Go tend the garden. As time went by, God saw that this man he gave a job to in the garden cannot perform it well alone, so he created a companion to help him with the work and keep him company. He blessed both of them. Look at what happened when the agreement with God was broken, God threw them out of the garden. In other words, they lost the easy life they suppose to enjoy. Marriage exists simply because of this work, and that is why a marriage requires work. It is not about how you feel. Sorry to blow your bubbles. Love is more than just a feeling. It is a spiritual entity that must be wooed and cultivated.

B: Pride: Now this is something from the pit of hell that is being used in marriages to destroy it. You can recognize pride from some of the subtle ways it shows itself. Selfishness, control, role reversal, manipulation, laziness, dependency on the other, discontentment, uncontrollable anger, etc.Pride has a big family and it comes as any of those things. It makes you do any of those things. Whenever you find yourself acting one of those out, you should immediately know that this is pride playing you. You cannot give place to anything that belongs to the devil and at the same time expect God to dwell there. It is impossible. The bible asks what does light have to do with darkness. Absolutely nothing. When light comes into a dark room, what happens? The darkness disappears of course. Both of them cannot dwell in the same place at the same time. So also it is true that when light  leaves a place, darkness then reigns. It is called the law of vacuum. No empty space can exist, something must occupy it. In marriage, either the fruits and therefore the blessings of the Spirit exist or the weeds and therefore the curses of the devil exist. There’s no sitting by the fence.

What causes couples to do all these things. One word. Fear. Fear, because they cannot truly bring themselves to trust God and believe in each other. Fear of the unknown, fear of the things that have not yet happened, fear of their own lusts, fear of the result of their own selfishness, the lists goes on and on.

Pride is the husband of fear and their children are selfishness, control, role reversal, manipulation, laziness, dependency on the other, discontentment, uncontrollable anger, etc. As said before, pride has a big family and the way you recognize its children is when they don’t belong in the family of God.

Now all these things lead a person to do one thing. Sin, and sin leads to only one thing, death. Death, not necessarily in the physical term, although inclusive, but more in terms of spiritual death. That is sadness, fruitlessness, lack and so many other evil fruits.

Let’s examine the children of pride and fear.

Selfishness: Merriam-Webster dictionary defines this word as been concerned excessively or exclusively with oneself: seeking or concentrating on one's own advantage, pleasure, or well-being without regard for others. Whew! That explains it all doesn’t it? How can a marriage be blessed with such an act from either spouse. The bible says that he that withhold tends to become poor, but that he that gives tends to receive more. A selfish act is withholding, only thinking about yourself and not your spouse. The proper act in a marriage is not selfishness, it is self-sacrifice. Selfish acts bring the worst out of a spouse and your act of self-sacrifice changes your spouse over time and brings the best out of him or her. This is God ordained and there’s no power in hell that can change that. Self-sacrifice brings unity and it is in unity that God commands blessings.

Control: To exercise restraining or directing influence over or to have power over. Just looking at that definition spells out failure in a marriage. There’s no where God commanded either spouse to have control over one another. God tells the wives to submit themselves. It does not mean that they become slaves. In fact submission is not powerlessness, it is the power of God manifesting through a woman. God also commanded the husbands to love their wives just as Christ loves the church and gave himself for it. Pay attention to what Jesus did. He GAVE himself for the church. There is that word again – Self-sacrifice. Husbands suppose to give themselves wholly to their wives and not seek ways to control them. Spouses must understand that you can only respect that which you love and love that which you respect, but you can’t do either unless self-sacrifice is involved. God gave us dominion over all other creations, not other humans.

Manipulation: Immediate brother to control. It means to control or play upon by artful, unfair, or insidious means especially to one's own advantage. It also means to change by artful or unfair means so as to serve one's purpose. Realize here and now that manipulation usually comes before control. It is a disguised form of control. When manipulation has grown fully and the other party had given in, it then becomes control.

Look again at that meaning for a moment. It says to control, not directly, but indirectly through the artful, unfair, or insidious means especially to one’s advantage. It means knowing your spouse’s good heart and deliberately exploiting it so that you can have your own way. Or taking advantage of their weakness for your gain. The reason why you are in a marriage is to complement one another. You are the strength where your spouse is weak and your spouse is your strength where you are weak. As said before God did not ordain control or dominion over humans, only over other creations. The moment you exercise control over your spouse by any means at all, you have sinned and you are responsible for the heartache that follows in the marriage, not your spouse.

Laziness: This is one of the triplets of pride. The others are indolence and Slothfulness.

Lazy, Indolence and Slothful mean not easily aroused to activity. Lazy suggests a disinclination to work. Indolent suggests a love of ease and a dislike of movement or activity. Slothful implies a temperamental inability to act promptly or speedily when action or speed is called for. Wow. You see why they are triplets now. They all tend to promote the same thing; failure to do what was suppose to be done. When either spouse fail to do what they are called to do in a marriage, the result is trouble. A spouse that allows any of these triplets is inviting serious trouble. A woman that suppose to take care of her husband with food, sex and other things that are in her power to do, but refuses to do so because of any of those triplets is simply selling out of the marriage and exposing her husband to receive the same services elsewhere. A man that will not take care of her wife by paying attention to her emotional needs is a fool. The woman will get her emotional needs outside of that marriage. The result, both will gravely sin before the Lord, expel the Lord’s presence and therefore his blessings. What is left? Trouble. Marital death. Except the Lord built the house, they that built it does so in vain.

In our modern day society, spouses, especially women have fallen to the trap of television viewing as a form of relaxation. They spend so many hours in front of the tube watching useless programs that cannot help them. Hours that they can devote to enjoy themselves with their spouses while relaxing at the same time. Unfortunately, this has made so many unwittingly allow the triplets to control them, ignoring their responsibilities to their spouses citing tiredness as excuse without realizing they are been controlled by the triplets. Men spend too much time either playing or watching games like golf, tennis, football, etc. I am not saying all these things are bad, what I am saying though is that do those things in moderation, so you can have time left for who is important in your life. Your spouse and your children.

Discontentment: Part of the reason why marriages fail is discontentment. To be content means to be satisfied with what you have, what you possess or what you have at your disposal regardless of what perceived value it has. It means you have valued yours just as much as anybody else’s, if not better. Then obviously discontentment is just the opposite. When we perceived our own blessings as having less value than that of others. When we lust after other people and other people’s stuff. When our own no longer satisfies us or when we secretly lust for others or other people’s stuff. This is what stops God from releasing his blessings in a marriage; because then his blessings will become corrupt or value-less in our hands. That’s why when we pray or ask God for something in our marriage, we don’t receive that thing. The bible gives us as one of the reasons we don’t have stuff is because when we ask, we only ask to consume it on our own lusts.

As regarding marriages, spouses are not satisfied with their mates any longer so they start having affairs. Men start having sexual affairs with other women outside of their marriage, women start having emotional and sexual dependency with other men outside their marriage and both start bringing unnecessary problems into their marriage. Even in this modern day, some women claim to be looking at other men out of the corner of their eyes while they are with their husband and some husbands had claimed the same. No wonder there’s so many problems in today’s marriages. God is not in them. Stop lusting and start loving that which the Lord had blessed you with. Only then will you start receiving love from your mate and God’s blessings in your marriage.This list is not by any means exhaustive, this is just a few of what causes marriage to fail.

Hey by the way, if you are wondering, I have been married for 22 years and still married to the same blessing/gift that God gave me, because that's what I consider my wife as. A gift of God from God to me.
