Significant unto Self

Introduction:
I felt led to contemplate on the futility and consequences of life without God. The ultimate purposeless life is one lived without God. Self worth attained by placing one’s significance in things and achievements instead of God is meaningless as is life without God of our Lord Jesus Christ in general. Let us intercede so that multitudes will be enlightened to the error of their ways and be saved/set free by the truth (John 8:32) 

Meaningless! Meaningless!” says the Teacher. “Utterly meaningless! Everything is meaningless.” (Ecc. 1:2).

Significant unto Self
“I am significant” repeat this in a trance, believe it at a glance at your achievements and accolades.

What is the purpose if you have no repose only tension with no solution?

What is the purpose if you see the broad way of death but are blind to the narrow way of life?

What is the purpose if your hands are tied and you ride on the waves of hell and cannot tell when Jesus calms the tide so you can walk byfaith and not by sight and be set alight to do what is right?
There is no purpose!

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)

Inspired by New Testament Scriptures Quote (Lord’s Supper) from 1 Corinthians 11:24-25

A poem among others in book: Our God reigns: Inspirational prophetic Christian Poetry (Volume 1) available at Amazon online 

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.”

They are Poor

They are poor for hatred is as a spider’s web knotted in their hearts choking the breath of life like a hangman’s noose.

They are poor…clothed in exquisite taste, but to the trained eye mere ghoulish attire.

Knitted together with cohorts, they spew venom on this person and that.

They are poor yet know not, for all they have is money, all they have is property, all they have are names on rich lists.

All they have is nothing..

Nothing to show before the judge of life,

Nothing of eternal value for a handshake by the Father of Lights.

Nothing… in their money vaults called poverty.

Absolutely Nothing…

Scriptural inspiration: Rev 3:17

Unwrapped for God’s Glory

Tell the Story of how God gave His Gift to be unwrapped for His glory.

The Gift of the Son of God born unto us, Son of man given unto us so that every day is Christmas for some man, woman and child who unwraps the gift of God

Men who unwrap to be un-trapped to become wrapped in God’s glory. 

Thank you God for the story of Jesus who gave gifts to men.
The gifts of callings, the Holy Spirit so that every day is Christmas for some man, woman and child who unwraps the Gift of God
We praise God for men who are sorry, And released from worry to become His Glorious Story.

GOD’S GIFT : KING OF THE JEWS
1Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, 2Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him….
When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was. 10When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.
11And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh. (Matt.2:1,2,10-11 KJV)
You are blessed, determine to stay blessed!
