MY WRITINGS

Awesome God

If the mere work of His fingers (just His fingers! Psalm 8:3) is so full of wisdom and power and grandeur and majesty and beauty, what must this God be like in himself! 

These are but the backside of his glory, as it were, darkly seen through a glass. What will it be to see the Creator himself! Not his works! A billion galaxies will not satisfy the human soul. God and God alone is the soul’s end. 


‘The enjoyment of God is the only happiness with which our souls can be satisfied’ – Jonathan Edwards. 


To go to heaven, fully to enjoy God, is infinitely better than the most pleasant accommodations here. [These] are but shadows, but God is the substance. These are but scattered beams, but God is the sun. These are but streams, but God is the ocean.

About Abortions

ARE YOU CONFUSED ABOUT YOUR STAND WHEN IT COMES TO ABORTION? The Bible makes it clear that life begins at conception, not merely at birth! 

For I was born a sinner— yes, from the moment my mother conceived me. Ps 51vs5 


An unborn child’s worth is invaluable before God. God has a plan for that unborn child as much as He does for you! 

You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! 

Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it. You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb. You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed. Ps 139vs13-16 


“I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb. 

Before you were born I set you apart and appointed you as my prophet to the nations.” Jer 1vs5 


Before we were born, God knows us personally and intimately. Who would dare to kill a friend of God, even an unborn friend? 


Abortion is taking the life of an unborn human being; it is murder and it is absolutely wrong. God forbids murder! 

“And I will require the blood of anyone who takes another person’s life. If a wild animal kills a person, it must die. And anyone who murders a fellow human must die. If anyone takes a human life, that person’s life will also be taken by human hands. For God made human beings in his own image. Gen 9vs5-6



Stand for the truth! Lead those going astray through the right path. Don’t stand idly, saying you are not directly involved with abortion- which is murder. Ye are the light of the world; let your light shine! Light up this dark world. 


Rescue those who are unjustly sentenced to die; save them as they stagger to their death. Don’t excuse yourself by saying, “Look, we didn’t know.” 

For God understands all hearts, and he sees you. He who guards your soul knows you knew.

He will repay all people as their actions deserve. Prov 24vs11-12 


However, if you have been a part of this ungodly act; (either the one who aborted a pregnancy or the one who advised or supported someone to) if you are still dealing with guilt, know that no matter how great your sin, God’s forgiveness is even greater. Don’t let the devil tie you down with that guilt. Accept God’s forgiveness, purging and cleansing and live the life of an overcomer. 


“Come now, let’s settle this,” 

says the LORD. 

“Though your sins are like scarlet, I will make them as white as snow. 

Though they are red like crimson, I will make them as white as wool. Is 1vs18 


But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness. 1Jn 1vs9



The BIBLE

Though it was written a long time ago, the Bible is God’s Word for us today, and it is relevant for our every need. It answers our every question! 

For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires. Hebrews 4vs12 


The grass withers and the flowers fade, but the word of our God stands forever.” Isaiah 40vs8 


All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work. 2Timothy 3vs16-17 


The Bible gives guidance. The Word of God is from the mind and heart of God, and who can deny that the all-wise, all-powerful, ever present God is the best guide of all? 


James 1vs5 (LB) says: “If you want to know what God wants you to do, ask Him, and He will gladly tell you, for He is always ready to give a bountiful supply of wisdom to all who ask Him; he will not resent it.” 


You guide me with your counsel, 

leading me to a glorious destiny. Psalm 73vs24 


Your word is a lamp to guide my feet 

and a light for my path. Psalm 119vs105 


The Bible is filled with God’s promises, which give us comfort and encouragement in this life as well as the cofident assurance that we (His children) will one day live forever in peace and security with Him! 


Every word of God proves true. He is a shield to all who come to him for protection. Proverbs 30vs5 


Remember your promise to me, for it is my only hope… It comforts me in all my troubles… I meditate on your age-old laws; O Lord, they comfort me… Your principles have been the music of my life throughout the years of my pilgrimage. Psalm 119vs49-50, 52, 54 


Such things were written in the Scriptures long ago to teach us. And the Scriptures give us hope and encouragement as we wait patiently for God’s promises to be fulfilled. Romans 15vs4 


The Bible was written a long time ago but never outdated! All we need for LIFE and GODLINESS has been handed out to us through God’s Words written in the Bible.

God’s Heirs

There are several privileges of surrendering yourself to the Lord Jesus Christ. When you belong to God, you are no longer a slave to sin or guilty before God. You can now receive all the blessings He freely gives to His children. We inherit the family privileges of the Almighty! 

So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus. Rom 8vs1 


And now that you belong to Christ, you are the true children of Abraham. You are his heirs, and God’s promise to Abraham belongs to you. Gal 3vs29 


Now you are no longer a slave but God’s own child. And since you are his child, God has made you his heir. Gal 4vs7 


All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ. Eph 1vs3 


Don’t let the devil cheat you. Tap into the fullness of the inheritance you have as a redeemed child of God. Stand on the promises of God firmly. Begin to reap the harvest God has promised you. 



If you are truly God’s, Then, YOU Become QUALIFIED TO sing these songs: 


‘We are heirs of the father, 

We are joint-heirs with the Son, 

We are children of the Kingdom 

We are family we are one!, 


And 


‘Abraham’s blessings are mine/2x 

I am blessed in the morning, afternoon and the evening; 

Because Abraham’s blessings are mine!’ 


Halleluyah!!!


OMOSEBI, Mary Omolola

Unity In The Kingdom

When God’s people decide to work and walk together in Jesus’ name, we will be unstoppable. 

When bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall, one by one, an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle. 


His intention was the perfecting and the full equipping of the saints (His consecrated people), [that they should do] the work of ministering toward building up Christ’s body (the church), [That it might develop] until we all attain oneness in the faith and in the comprehension of the [full and accurate] knowledge of the Son of God, that [we might arrive] at really mature manhood (the completeness of personality which is nothing less than the standard height of Christ’s own perfection), the measure of the stature of the fullness of the Christ and the completeness found in Him. (Ephesians 4vs12-13 AMP) 



Jesus knew their thoughts and replied, “Any kingdom divided by civil war is doomed. A town or family splintered by feuding will fall apart. (Matthew 12vs25 NLT) 


Union (or unity) gives strength!

Simply Give Your Best To The Lord

 

 

 

 

Just yesterday, someone was telling me about his father who always attends church services but has decided never to give any offering in church. He said he claimed that the offerings given by church members are used by the pastors to enrich their own lives while the members remain impoverished.
I tried to make the person see that that was a capitally wrong decision to make but I desired to give him a scriptural reference which I was not able to lay my hand on at that point.
Alas, this morning, I was led to start reading Leviticus and then I got to this verse quoted here. Eureka! 

The priests are to burn only a representative portion of the offering, but all of it will be fully appreciated by the Lord. The remainder belongs to the priests for their own use, but it is all counted as a holy burnt offering to the Lord. -Lev 2vs9(TLB) 

 

It is none of your business how the money you give to the Lord is used. Why should you bother yourself with irrelevant investigations?
The Living Bible makes it clear that God appreciates the WHOLE OFFERING. The priests were given the go-ahead to take care of themselves and their families from a portion of the offerings.
Besides, the Bible says not to muzzle the mouth of the ox while it works. Why then do you intend to tie up the mouth of these servants of God.
Leave them to answer directly to the Lord.
Remember what happened to the sons of Eli? They were dealt with for their unfaithfulness. 


 

I think what you should worry about should be if your offering deserves to be accepted by God.
Is your offering defaced?
Have you given it bountifully, cheerfuly and without grudge?
Have you brought your offering while you are harbouring unforgiveness in your heart?
These are the questions you should ask. 
God is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him. Seek the Lord with all your heart. Give your best to Him and wait for the harvest time. God owes no man. He is ever faithful.

Stand Still……..

Moses told the people, Fear not; stand still (firm, confident, undismayed) and see the salvation of the Lord which He will work for you today. For the Egyptians you have seen today you shall never see again. The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace and remain at rest. Ex 14v13-14 

Stand firm on the solid rock-Jesus. Once your feet are set on the rock, there is no basis to fear sinking(well, except you are not sure on what you are standing on). If you know how great your God is, nothing can shake you. 


Firstly, when you are standing still, you are not to do that idly. You must be considering the works of God. (Hear this, O Job; stand still and consider the wondrous works of God- Job 37v14). Remind yourself of the glorious things He had done in the past. Ruminate on His wondrous acts. Look around you, look at nature; read your Bible and meditate on the awesome miracles He wrought and remind yourself of the battles He has fought for you. 


There is this song I learnt when I was younger- “I know whom I believe, I worship the Lord; He’s the Alpha and Omega, He’s the beginning and the end.” God is able to do just what He says He will do. He has the power and authority. With Him, nothing is impossible. Always remind yourself that nothing is too hard for Him. If something you are trusting Him for has not come through, it is not because He cannot do it, it is simply because He is in control of the timing. He always knows best. Keep praising Him till He decides to raise you! 



Secondly, when you are standing still, there is no need to fight. The battle is not yours. It is time for you tou trust God completely. God does not need your help to make you conquer. Don’t try to rush God or make or follow shortcuts to the solution. Only God’s blessings add no form of sorrow. His works are always perfect. He does not want to share His glory with any man. Allow Him take full control. Don’t allow Him take the steering wheel while you are busy trying to manipulate the geer. Sit majestically at the back sit and relax. Simply follow Him. Let Him lead you at His own pace. 


The story of king Jehoshaphat in 2 Chronicles chapter 20 captures this message properly. What could look more stupid than going to battle with musical instruments when your enemies are bringing their guns, missiles,etc. Oh my God! God uses the foolish things of this world to confound the wise. As a matter of fact, someone who God led to battle with no physical armour must have a more groundbreaking testimony than someone He equipped with the physical armour to face terrible enemies with sophisticated weapons war. Wait for Him. 


As long as it is God that is at the fore of that battle, you have nothing to fear. You are more than a conqueror! Stand still and know He is God!

Causeless Or Caused? (2)

Concluding part………


3. YOUR SPIRITUAL PARENT: “You must not dishonor God or curse any of your rulers. Ex22v28. God has placed your spiritual fathers and mothers in place to guide and lead you. They are God’s representatives in your life. Under no circumstance must you speak ill of them. 

Check out this story- 

Elisha left Jericho and went up to Bethel. As he was walking along the road, a group of boys from the town began mocking and making fun of him. “Go away, baldy!” they chanted. “Go away, baldy!” Elisha turned around and looked at them, and he cursed them in the name of the LORD. Then two bears came out of the woods and mauled forty-two of them (2Kings 2v23-24);


Gehazi got himself and his generations after him cursed because of his greed, dishonesty and lying. He sold out his future and that of his children yet unborn for ‘a morsel of bread’ (material things). 


It is very easy to fall into the temptation of speaking against these anointed ones especially when it seems to you that they do not ‘deserve’ to be in the position they are in or that you could have fit better in the position. Always remember, God placed them there. He decides whom to choose. 


I am sure you will prefer this part: If anyone decides to curse you without curse, the person has simply bought a lion for himself. Of course, the lion will devour him. Let them curse you if they want. The Lord will turn it around to blessing for you. They will fall into the pit they have dug for you. When Shimei was cursing David, he had the right attitude. He believed God was a just God. He would turn the curses around to blessing. 


Ps 109v19,20,28: 

Now may his curses return and cling to him like clothing; may they be tied around him like a belt.” 

May those curses become the LORD’s punishment for my accusers who speak evil of me. 

Then let them curse me if they like, 

but you will bless me! When they attack me, they will be disgraced! But I, your servant, will go right on rejoicing! 


In conclusion, “Look, today I am giving you the choice between a blessing and a curse! (Deut 11v26) The ball is in your court. God cannot be mocked; what a man sows he will reap. The choice is yours to make. Choose wisely!


OMOSEBI,  Mary Omolola

Causeless Or Caused? (1)

Like a fluttering sparrow or a darting swallow, an undeserved curse will not land on its intended victim. Prov 26v2 (NLT) 



This verse is very explicit. You do not need to fear any curse as long as you do not deserve it. That curse cannot rest on you if you are innocent. There are however several things to watch out for. This is not about being negative; it is what is clearly stated in the Bible. ‘The LORD is slow to anger and filled with unfailing love, forgiving every kind of sin and rebellion. But he does not excuse the guilty. (‘The LORD is slow to anger and filled with unfailing love, forgiving every kind of sin and rebellion. But he does not excuse the guilty- Num 14v18a). You could be deserving of curses if you offend the following. 


1. GOD- YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER: But you will be cursed if you reject the commands of the LORD your God and turn away from him and worship gods you have not known before. (Deut 11v28). If you disobey His commandments, He will punish. You are beckoning on curses i

●You engage in idolatry (Deut 27v15). If you exalt any other person or thing above God, you are inviting curses to yourself.

●You are a thief (Deut27v17)- if you take whatever is not yours, you are cursed. If you forcefully take anything, or you pick thinks from your place of work that were not released to you, you are signing up for trouble.

●You are deceitful and misleading (Deut 27v18)- if you deceive or mislead the blind(physically blind spiritually blind or the ignorant), you are playing with fire. This might look trivial but it is a serious matter. A common example is telling someone who asks you for direction to go the opposite way. Let’s be careful.

●You deny someone justice (Deut 27v19)- if God has placed you in a position of authority, use the position correctly. Don’t oppress those that are at your mercy simply because you don’t like them or because they are not in your ‘click’. If your friend is the one that is wrong, tell him he is wrong. Don’t manipulate judgement.

●You engage in sexual sin(s) (Deut 27v20-23)- any form of sexual sin (fornication, adultery, homosexualism, bestialism, incest, etc) brings curses upon man. Beware

●You are a murderer (Deut 27v25)- “thou shall not kill!” Don’t kill another person’s vision, don’t kill another person’s chances of being successful,…by your manipulation.

●You close your eyes to the needs of the poor (Prov 28v27)- do not ignore the under-privileged. Be sensitive to their needs and help them when you have the ability to. God has blessed you so that you can be a blessing!

●You are a Hypocrite (Is 65v1-7)- stop the ‘holier than thou’ attitude. Stop living double lives. Be plain before the Lord. Stop deceiving yourself.

●You are a covenant breaker (Jer11v3)- be a man/woman of your word! Fulfill your vows. Fulfill your part of the covenant you make with God or man.

●You are a cheat (Mal1v14)- you will be cheating yourself indirectly if you continue to cheat because the blessing you should have received if you had not cheated will be cut down or stopped. Stop cheating your customers, workers, employers,…Remember, you can not cheat God. He sees everything you are hiding. Remember Ananias and his wife (Sapphira)!

●You preach things contrary to the Word of God or uphold false doctrines (Gal1v8-9)- someone might actually be falling into error without taking note. Let the Word of God ONLY, be your standard and God Himself- your examiner.

●You don’t love the Lord (1Cor 16v22)- I will like to take a pause on this point. If you love God, you will obey His commandment. Disobeying the Lord causes curses to migrate towards you(Deut 28v15-45). Love the Lord and Live! 


2. YOUR BIOLOGICAL PARENT: ‘Cursed is anyone who dishonors father or mother.’ 

And all the people will reply, ‘Amen.’ (Deut 27v16). 

Do not dishonour your parents. Make sure not to insult them. Dishonouring one’s parent is a capital offense. As a matter of fact, in the old testament, the death penalty was the punishment for dishonoring a parent (Ex21v27). 

No matter what achievement you might have made or had, give your parent the honour they deserve. Long and short of this- Honour your parent! 


OMOSEBI, Mary Omolola

You Are Important

Your vision may be to stand alongside the number one man or leading lady. Don’t let anyone devalue you because you are not leading the pack. A well served man or woman is renewed and strengthened by your service. You are as important as the number one fellow.

Be faithful and God will preserve you (Ps 31v23). He cannot forget or overlook your labour of love. Every part of your body is important. 


Imagine your head being alone without any other part. That means your head will do the thinking, walking, digestion, defecating,… (I can’t imagine it that’s why I’m asking you to do that- on a lighter mood) 


After all, who is Apollos? Who is Paul? We are only God’s servants through whom you believed the Good News. Each of us did the work the Lord gave us. I planted the seed in your hearts, and Apollos watered it, but it was God who made it grow. It’s not important who does the planting, or who does the watering. What’s important is that God makes the seed grow. The one who plants and the one who waters work together with the same purpose. And both will be rewarded for their own hard work. 1Cor 3v5-8 


God assigns to each person specific assignments. Face your duties. Carry them out diligently. Don’t devalue yourself. Don’t let anyone look down on you. The way to go about that is by making sure you understand clearly your assignment. If you do, you will be able to face anyone boldly and tell them “Don’t try to misdirect or confuse me. I know where I am headed and I know the means by which I must get there!” If you don’t know or you are not sure, ask your maker (God). He is the master-planner. 


You are important in God’s eyes (to Him) irrespective of the assignment you are given- leading or following.
