Insurgent

He’d rather lurk in the shadows
The safety of his comfort
A ghost of the night
Master beneath the moonlight
The longing of men to behold
For the beauty of his countenance
And the sonority of his harp

Then the stars converged
For the fear of this one
A threat to their sparkle
Or so they thought
War they waged
Oh they raged

They sought the counsel of the moon
The sage of the skies
To silence this one
That he may thrive no more

They forget that they excel in splendor
And are the beauty of the night skies
They forget he is the reflection of their shine
And his glory is ultimately theirs

To them, He is the terror of the night
Minds spooked by the beauty of the ghost
Threatened by his transient applause

Little do they know
That the earth desires the stars
More than a pretty ghost
For he can only offer what they have to give

The sage understands
But the stars?
They know so little

a love tale

There lived once a guy
Who had a breath…
Not that no one else breathes,
As you all know.
But his breath differs.
Exceptional.

Well, along his path
Came a damsel
With the power to make his breath count

He is the breather
And she is the witch

She wields the power to make a heart skip it’s rhythm
And her face shines the light that blinds your vanity
Her craft is not hostile
And her powers spark honest fires

The appearance of The Fairest
Made the breather breathe

The witch is The Fairest

The breather…
There is magic in his breath
And like the story of our Genesis
Their love became a living being
So real,
Morning stars sang together
And leapt for joy
So real,
Can only be compared to Eden in
All her beauty.

No one knows the end of this tale.
I do not know myself.

The ancient Breather still has a breath
And his lady still makes it count.

God in da hood

hello!
I love the house of God. Don’t you?
I love the church and everything she stands for.
But today I think I’m just gonna point out something we need to work on. I hope it’s okay with you.

So here it is:
“I think I have a problem with us.”
“Anything to worry about?”
“Yes! We have become addicted to the church building!”
“errr…”

We pray to have amazing services and see mighty things happen in our midst. Of course, there’s nothing wrong in that. The church is the place where we are built to maturity and equipped for the work of ministry. But then, there is so much energy in the church that is not channeled to the streets!
So, there it is. We have a problem!
The last I remember of the Great Commission, Jesus said we should go into the world, not stay locked up in a church building!
I really don’t see why we can’t direct our passion in church to the streets.
Do you even know how many people need Jesus? How many lost people there are in your neighborhood?
Do you have an idea of how many unchurched people live on your block and need a church experience?
More than ever before, we need the church to bring God to the neighborhood!

God forbid that we are a people who are comfortable in some building and forget that our mandate is to the street.
God forbid that we will be a people that are blinded to the needs outside our church zone.

Let’s take the healing power of Jesus to the parks, slums and everywhere man is found.
The same atmospheres we have in our church meetings can be taken to dark alleys too.
The love of God transcends our imaginations, reaching to the depths of the soul of the seemingly unlovable.
Everyone therefore deserves a chance to hear the good news that God loves them and wants to do life with them.
No man should be robbed of the chance to either choose or reject Jesus.

But somehow, we don’t seem to know that people really wanna break free from the chains that hold them in. There’s just something in every man that longs for some higher satisfaction- God.

“If I be lifted up from the earth, I will draw all men to myself…” Jesus

“Who desires all men be saved, and all should come to the knowledge of the truth”. Paul, the Apostle

I’m challenged to give people a God-opportunity by offering them a church experience.
What about you?

Great Sunday morning.

Restoring Sanity

I believe God is with me, and I hope you do too.

Of recent, my thoughts have revolved around a mindedness of the presence of God.
I believe that the church believes what the Bible teaches and not what the TVs communicate. I hope so.
If God’s word says “I will never leave you nor forsake you” Heb 12:5, and it says the Holy Spirit is always with the believer (John 14:17), then we must believe it totally.

I live in a generation where we judge the presence of God by the spectacular.
I live in a generation where we judge the presence of God by our emotional state. So to us, God is only there when our minds feel so, and God is not in the not-so-exciting situations

We must teach our hearts that we walk by faith and not by sight.
That you don’t feel it does not mean God is not in it!
If He said “I will never leave”, then He meant it.
I live in a generation where our faith is base on what our eyes can see and our senses can relate with.
That is carnal. We were not like this.
Jesus made one of the most profound foundational statements about our Christianity.

John 20:29 KJV
“Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed”.

That set the pace for our faith walk.
If we will believe what God’s word says about God’s presence, we will come to see that:
God’s presence is God Himself
God’s presence is not something we invite everyday.
God’s presence is constant.

It’s time for this Christian generation to come back to her senses!
Whether you have God-bumps (goosebumps) in a prayer or worship meeting; or it just feels like a regular day lifting up hands to praise, and not feeling all the holiness and splendor of heaven, God is in it!
Except, of course, you have a faith problem.

I live in a generation where we judge the effectiveness of a prayer moment by our senses. And we judge the anointing (God’s call) on a minister by how much “presence” he carries into a gathering.
WE HAVE LOST OUR MINDS!
Now, the 21st century church guy wants everything to be spooky, weird and mystical.
Jesus was not a weirdo when He walked the earth. Yes, He healed the sick, raised the dead and cast out devils. All these are expected of us too as believers. For us, this is natural.

Mark 16:17-18 KJV
And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; [18] They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

But He wasn’t spooky. His discussions were simple. I mean, everyone could stand a conversation with Him. He was the young, handsome story telling man, who loved people and couldn’t stand them being oppressed.
And yes, He was a gentleman too.

What should be our focus?
God’s kingdom!

What really matters now is to see God’s kingdom find full expression all over the earth.

We spread the Word
We pray down the reign of His kingdom.
We seek God’s interest first. The supernatural is not far away.

The supernatural is here. And if you don’t feel it, it doesn’t mean God is not in it.
