SEPTEMBER 15, 2017 – RETRACING YOUR STEPS BACK TO JESUS

I will set out and go back to my father and say to him: Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. Luke 15:18  Many persons have been taught to believe that God is cruel, wicked without any iota of mercy. They feel He is always out to destroy everyone who dare not honor Him, as a result, they have missed that most important aspect of God – He is a loving Father. Countless times, some once fervent believers have wondered how they got to the point of being very far away from God, prayerless and cannot even...

SEPTEMBER 11, 2017 – BENEFITS OF CARRYING GOD’S PRESENCE. (2)

We are continuing the study on the benefits we receive from carrying God’s presence. The presence of God as it is used here does not necessarily mean the presence of God in the church or any Christian gathering.

As a result, He protects, preserves and promotes such an individual that carries His presence. Let us consider some of the many characters in the bible that...

AUGUST 31, 2017 – LIVING WITH THE CONSCIOUSNESS OF GOD’S PRESENCE.

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. Proverbs 9:10 The omnipresence attribute of the Almighty God implies that He is ever present in all things.

Therefore, living our daily lives being conscious that God is everywhere at every time, will help us to be mindful of the things we do, things we say and the way we conduct ourselves. Living in the consciousness of God’s presence means having the understanding and...

AUGUST 28, 2017 – HE SEES, HE KNOWS… (2)

For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways, says the Lord.  -Isaiah 55:8 The world is presently passing through the most difficult phase in its history. Economy of the world is crumbling; there are disasters here and there. Uncertainties, political upheavals, untimely deaths, panic, unemployment, incurable diseases – the list is inexhaustible. In the midst of all these challenges, we might be forced to ask; where is our God? Severally, people have asked me ‘if God truly is loving and caring, how come there is so much suffering in the world and what is...
