Get Ready, the Bridegroom Cometh! 

I believe in Jesus Christ. He is the Son of God. A Son unlike any other who left his throne to became as you and I. 
Walking among a crowd, he healed, taught and mended broken lives. Many believed, some doubted, but he stopped not his mandate for mankind.

Have you ever heard of a Son such as this, a man of this kind?

Have you seen one so pure and true? One who is impartial and kind.

A lover of all; rich, poor, the Jew and gentile?

He finished his work when he died and ascended to his throne. Now seated, the King makes intercession for co-heirs now and those to come. 

Are you on a risky tightrope between heaven and hell with your gaze set on that place where sorrow untold with everlasting chains awaits? 

Or are you ready for the Bridegroom when he comes? 

As a bright lamp full of oil, keep your soul ready and ablaze. There is still time to prepare for the King, so live not in uncertainty or in a maze.

Time for reflection on our Salvation & Calling/Poetic Prose: …Them Also I Must Bring” (John 10:16)

Have you ever thought of the fact that when Jesus was praying just before his crucifixion (John 17) for his disciples and those unsaved who “also I must bring” (as he stated about the yet to be sheep in John 10:16) that the “them also I must bring” included YOU ?
Yes, you who was predestined to be born centuries later and would become born again children of God by the outworking of circumstances in your life?

It is therefore a fact that our pathway to being saved was guaranteed by God to happen because JESUS INTERCEDED FOR US so many centuries ago.

Let us spend quality time meditating on this with immense thanksgiving remembering what Jesus accomplished for us on the Cross of Calvary.

Having a salvation that was secured by way of his High Priestly intercession before and by the act of his death, Jesus is still to this day making intercession for us at the right hand of Father God! What great security we have in Christ! We also have a clear mandate as believers in Christ to be His vessels to bring the unsaved to him. Are we demonstrating the compassion of God in Christ for the unsaved? Are we seeking opportunities to share the gospel?
For most of us, coming to Christ was through someone’s prayers (in agreement with Christ’s at the right hand of Father) and/or hearing someone share the gospel.
Nothing has changed, the Great Commission is as clear as ever, Jesus is still saying to us “I want to use you, for those “also I must bring” (John 10:16) Let us heed to his call for the time is short! The Bridegroom Cometh!!
Below is a poetic prose about the reality of man’s separation from God & God’s quest for man entitled “…Them also I must bring”

Poem of Hope & Restoration (storytelling series): God brings dreams to Pass

Up and down the land she walked, as a wanderer seeing naught and feeling lost, she sighed and cried “I have stalled ‘cause of the fog and drought”.
Even within, she felt barren and dry wanting to pray but too weak to try. Then came a light so bright before her face, but looking around she saw no one in that place. Within her heart, she heard a voice say loud & clear

“I am the Light of the World who loves you, my dear”. Then he placed a fountain in her heart and said “Out of you shall flow rivers of living water to quench your thirst, so you shall never falter”.

Then suddenly her heart became a well watered verdant land, from her mouth was a melodious waterfall, and her eyes were awash with God’s salve to never falter or fall.

 The bright ray of the morning sun hit her face so hard she covered her eyes and exclaimed “my, what a dream so real!”

The dream spoke of God’s Light, His love and the River of Life, a picture of what is to come, a revelation of God’s delivering might and abundant promises day and night. 

Now strengthened, newly enlightened, no more doubtful, newly hopeful, she knew that she could cope with every trial whatever the scope, for her heart was now full of hope, because of Him who said

“I have spoken it, I will also bring it to pass; I have purposed it, I will also do it.(1)”

(Scriptural references:John 8:12, 7:38-39, Biblical quote Isaiah 46:11 KJV)

Poem in soon to be published book: A Divine World: Purposeful Christian Storytelling in Poetry & Prose

Jesus, the Passover Lamb

At the Passover table for the sake of his remembrance, Jesus commanded his disciples saying 
eat the bread; “…my body which is broken for you”, drink the wine; “…the new testament in my blood:”

At the Passover table, I, his disciple obey his command: my eating of the bread, his body is the crushing of my enemy, my drinking of the wine, his blood is the draining away of my sin.

In Jesus, the Passover Lamb, I pass over from death to life for the curse is broken, and death is forsaken.

At the Passover table, eating, I no more hunger for worldliness.

Drinking, I no more thirst for sinfulness.

For in the Pass Over, I have resurrection life.

“25Jesus said… “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will still live, even if he dies. 26Whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?” (John 11:25 WEB)

VICTORY SONG : Christ is Risen !!

My Saviour’s blood was shed and out poured every sin whatever the name, great or small from past to present until there was none.
“O death, where is your victory?       O death, where is your sting?”

His body was crushed and so was every sickness and disease whatever the name, great or small, from past to present until there was none.

“O death, where is your victory?       O death, where is your sting?”

He was entombed and crushed satan’s head defeating the hordes of hell.

The angel appeared, opened the grave, saying “out!” then escaped the victor of heaven Our Saviour, the Resurrected Christ.

“O death, where is your victory?       O death, where is your sting?”

Armed with keys, My Saviour, opened graves, and broke chains saying “out!”, then escaped captives of hell.

We his Saints, the Resurrected with Christ. He ascended on high, taking captivity captive

saying “receive!” then gave he gifts to men. We his Saints, the Resurrected with Christ.

“O death, where is your victory?      O death, where is your sting?”

..thank God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ.”

In This Season

In this season of festivity,

where shopping is in abundance,

let love spill and share with those in lack and deemed irrelevant.

In this season of nativity,

where carol singing is in abundance,

let minds be still and focus on Christ as Saviour, the reason for this season of Joyance.

The Angel Gabriel said of Mary to Joseph “She will bear a Son; and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.” (Matt.1:21)

Ode to the Holy Spirit

(google pic)

Come Holy Spirit, walk with me and talk to me.

Where you are there is liberty because you are the strong Arm that guides and protects me.

In your presence I am released from bondage and the armies of hell cannot prevail
against me, nor can the hordes of Satan arise and oppress me.

Come Holy Spirit, walk with me and talk to me.

You show me how and what to pray and as swords of deliverance are the songs of
worship you put in my mouth.

Where you are, there is liberty because you empower me, not just to live for Christ but to be like him in thought, word and deed.

“…The LORD is Spirit and where the Spirit of the LORD is there is Liberty” (2 Corinth. 3:17)

You Are All that Matters

What is life worth
if I focus on trivial factors and concern myself with mere structures
but ignore that You are all that matters?

What will I become if I am conformed to the dictates of this world and
I am intimate with evil doers but ignore that You are all that matters?

You are the engine that sustains me along destiny path,
the lifeboat that keeps me afloat, the air that I breath and the ever-flowing
fountain that quenches my thirst.

Indeed You, Yahweh are all that matters.
