Hey Christian 

You chose to keep secrets

This is not a crime

And I don’t imply it is

But when we shine bright in the confines of our privacy 

We are as good as the darkness ravaging our land

The gospel is not a secret treasure 

It’s light that shines in dark places 

The message is God’s wisdom to the world 

Step out!

​My past called my name on the basis of my faults 

With loud shouts of guilt to shut my mouth before God 

Love called my name on the merit of His good works 

With loud shouts of grace that casts my fears away

Thursday Morning thoughts

Hi there. 

I know it’s been a while I came around here. And I’m starting out to be consistent again. Pray for me!😁

I wasn’t the one to have friends or a group of folks to roll with when I was younger. I was basically just on my own. Not anymore though. I have a couple of them now. 

And I believe so much in the power of relationships, how that we need people to survive. 

There are moments in life when we are tempted to be alone and do things on our own. And we could so allow folly such that we say things like, “I don’t need anyone” or “I’d rather do life alone”. Now that’s pride gone wrong. 

As much as we may want to live in some sort of denial, we need people that believe in us and in our dreams. People who see possibilities where others see our faults and failures. We may never know the extent to which this goes in shaping the course of our lives. We may never know how much our mindsets can been affected by the right relationships. 

I am a Christian, and I am responsible for my spiritual growth. I need to pray and study my Bible constantly. 

I admit that I won’t be doing enough of these if I don’t have certain relationships in my life. This means that my effectiveness in the course of the gospel can be strengthened by my relationships. And of course the right relationships. 

On the flip side however, the wrong relationships can hinder my growth and productivity. 

In some relationships, people see possibilities on a whole wrong level. So it’s beyond “He believes in me”.

I mean he could believe in your folly and strengthen it! You know what I mean? 

So here’s the summary of my thoughts. 

Have the right relationships that build you up. This is quite basic. But beyond this, honor your relationships.

If there’s this person that is all over you, always looking out for you and all. Hold them in high esteem because they have placed value on you.

This worths more than gold! 

And people know when you don’t value them. They know when you don’t believe in them the same way you see when they don’t believe in you. They know when your actions are just on a superficial level and not from your deep sincere insides. Our actions betray our hearts. Help them to always remember that they are appreciated, loved and honored.

I am

This same story plagued
Many centuries of our being.
Tales of woes
And rabbid foes
Not just folks that made
our bellies turn
Taking after the insanity
Of their profane fathers
But also the fall of nature
That spontaneously released
Savage diseases that ravaged
our bodies, striken with age.

A tale of NOs where we sought approval
Letdowns where all our hopes were planted
Our minds saw trees in our watered nursery
But no, our eyes only beheld the rot and misery
And we have become as it were
The most miserable of all

Oh Eve, you have cursed your daughters
Who have borne sons that toil with sweat
Breaking the ground in hope of labours reward
Oh how you have cursed your daughters whose
seeds are planted in the heat of passion
And their fruits borne with much tears and anguish

The beauty of the skies at dusk
fill our ears with noises of
disintegrating systems and the
folly of the elders

But I have come as light in gross darkness
Releasing colours and fragrant odours
I have come with that by which nothing
dies in my hands
I come with hope for bleak futures
Rewriting stories that once tore our hearts

For I am the breaking of many dawns
in many places an open portal of light
and encounters with the Godhead
I bear His very essence
For I am the work of His hands
His masterpiece
I am the possessor of the world
By the atonement in His blood
I call to be
I exert authority
Disarming the powers that were
yet feign to be.

I am He who was burdened
I am He who was yoked
But not again
For I have believed the promise
Of the seed and I have freedom
I am He who is called the Spirit-Man
Doing the works of Him who sent me
That the land may be healed again

For I carry life
Indeed I give life
I am the stirring of the sleeping sun
The blossoming of the waking flowers
I am the freshness of the garden herbs
The twinkle in the even stars

I am the falling of the morning dew
The sparkle left on the grass at dawn
I am the touch of the solar rays
It’s effect on the motions of nature
I am the calm of the evening breeze
For this purpose I was made

I am He
The Spirit-Man
In whose hands nothing dies

Night

These days are long
And the nights have changed
My eyes don’t shut
Without the tears that hurt

My ears long to hear
The freedom song drawn near
For these days I fear
I may drown in my tears

I have grown to desire
The pain that speaks fire
Heaven knows I want liberty
Before my grief defines my state

Delusion

​Well, that’s the word on my mind. 

It’s really cool to see that some churches  are beginning to teach about new creation realities. Our reality. The fact that the finished works of Christ has declared us righteous, justified and at peace with God. The fact that the  believer is sanctified. The believer is one with God. The very essence of God is in the believer, meaning that the believer is the habitation of God. 

Just read the epistles and see these realities for yourself. 

Before, the problem was that people were teaching works. How that you need to do certain things to receive the grace of God for your everyday life or for you to “make heaven”. So we begin to wonder why it was called “grace” in the first place if we have to earn it. 

And it doesn’t mean that soo many churches still don’t preach works and have put up mosaic law-like ordinances ignorantly. There’s still a lot of labour in the word and prayer to do with regards to this. 

However, is it now a crime that we are teaching new creation realities in church ni? 

I mean, things we should take responsibility for, we now account to the finished works of Christ. 

I mean Christ died to save sinners. That’s all. The blood of Jesus was shed for the atonement of sins, reconciling people back to God. Nothing else. 

But now as far as we are concerned, Christ died to give us money. Christ died to give us A-grades in school. Now have we become comedians. 

Just think about this. Anything Christ finished on the cross is perfect and perpetually expressed in the believer. If it’s not a constant in your life, Christ did not die for it. For example, our righteousness is perpetual. The Holy Spirit is always in us. He never leaves. We are perpetually sons of God. We did nothing to gain it or sustain it. 

But if you don’t read, you won’t pass your exams. If you don’t work, you will be financially poor. You need to attain to these things. 

That means Christ did not die for them. 

No more delusions. Read your Bible.

Tuesday Morning thoughts 

​Great day it is already. 

On my mind this morning…

I have been in the church setting long enough to know that people are not the same. We’ve all got our excesses. We all make mistakes. As far as I’m concerned, you can’t relate with people that long and not see their faults, their imperfections. 

And truth is, those faults are what you defined them to be, at least in some ways. There are things we personally define as wrong based on our opinions about them. We, in many ways, create the standard. So, I believe that there are things that are generally regarded as unacceptable and there are things we personally regard as such based on our personalities. 

Example is, if you don’t like long talks, then anyone that engages you in long conversations talks too much! You determined that. Someone else is perfectly alright with that. 

If you believe in being calm in your disposition about what you seem to believe in and someone else is loud about what he perceives to be right, you conclude he is a fanatic. Perhaps, an extremist! 

People are just not the same. 

I feel this is something to think on. 

We are to walk in love as our absolute. Accommodate

However, if wrong is what is really demonstrated by the people around us, then we must learn to accommodate them, and in love, help them to be better people. 

This can always be done. 

However, the mistake certain church folks make is in adopting methods contrary to God’s perspective (which is the only perspective) on expressing love. 

God does not find faults. It’s his nature. 

James 1:5

Now if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask from God, the One giving generously to all and not finding fault, and it will be given to him.

We find faults. We are more aware of people’s inadequacies than the possibilities they carry deep inside. 

We must come to learn that God has no intention to condemn anyone. As those who partner to do the works of Christ on earth, we also don’t point out faults. 

We see possibilities because people can actually be better.  It’s our job to magnify the possibilities. This is very important. 

God declared the believer righteous, not because he’s got everything right morally. But as far as God is concerned, the believer is His righteousness. It’s what He sees. Righteousness! Not faults! 

2 Corinthians 5:21 KJV

For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.



John 3:17 KJV

For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

2 Corinthians 5:16-17 (Msg)  Because of this decision we don’t evaluate people by what they have or how they look. We looked at the Messiah that way once and got it all wrong, as you know. We certainly don’t look at him that way anymore.

Now we look inside, and what we see is that anyone united with the Messiah gets a fresh start, is created new. The old life is gone; a new life burgeons! Look at it!

Blessed day.

Spirit led

​It’s the beginning of a blessed week.

There’s always something to be thankful for. In fact, there is always a lot to be thankful for;

The gift of people, friendship, leadership, health and needs met. 

I especially love to stay aware of the relationships in my life. The people given as gifts. Mentors, the church family, friends again and again. 

1 Thessalonians 5:18 KJV

In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

Here are some of the things I learnt in the past few days in church and everywhere else. 

We are not without guidance.
Every believer has the Holy Spirit. 

Ephesians 1:13 KJV

In whom ye also trusted , after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,

John 14:16-17 KJV

And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; [17] Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.



And we can see from these scriptures that the Holy Spirit stays forever! He does not leave. 

He is not Water that evaporates, Fire that quenches or a Dove that flies away. 

He is a person that stays! 
By reason of this, we are not without guidance. 

The leadings of the Spirit is our inheritance in Christ. 

Romans 8:14 KJV

For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

1 John 2:20, 27 KJV

But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things. [27] But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.



So from now on, we can live life not confused, with much more clarity, because we are now aware that we are led by the Spirit.

Random

I walked through valleys
encountering shadows of death.
Substanceless beings with whom I wrestled
Beating gases and blasts of breath
Unreal beings
On whom time was much wasted.
Recognising what’s reality
Laying hold on knowledge
Won me my battles.

Blast! Shadows creep upon the innate mind
Squeezing and suffocating
the last straw that binds sanity with my
Existence
Freedom lay way inside in the light
that never died.

Our hurts don’t define us
Nor the tears that heat our faces.
The tip of the writers pen
tells the story of his strength.
Perhaps, that’s all there is to who he is.

Revelation of the scars flow
as words are written
Tales of woes ends are brought again
to the surface
As they cloud the sources of vision

Rampant in our minds
These random thoughts
That betray what lies low
Within.

Sann.

Joy

It isn’t about the humor in their words
Neither is it the lavishing of gifts upon.

I died to myself
And all that once satisfied

That I may know Him
And the story of me He authored

For the revelation of Jesus
Is the stirring of my joy
