MEMORIAL OF FAITH

1.Every known culture and religion accommodate MEMORIALS. Temples, mausoleums, statues and diverse structures stand today as MEMORIALS of great rulers or religious icons. MEMORIALS serve as REMINDER and precedent for present and future action. Another word for MEMORIAL is REMEMBRANCE. FAITH, on the other hand, is primarily HOPE in the WORD of God, as it is written: “…FAITH is the SUBSTANCE of things HOPED for, the EVIDENCE of things NOT SEEN” (Hebrews 11:1) FAITH is the REALITY of what God says He will do and MEMORIALS OF FAITH are not the works of men but of God. The ALMIGHTY raises MEMORIALS OF FAITH to SEPARATE, ANCHOR and GATHER the HARVEST of His WORD in every age, according to His PURPOSE. MEMORIALS OF FAITH are established by PROPHETIC REVELATION of the SURE PROMISE of God in the HEART. There is a MEMORIAL OF FAITH for this generation and it is not a TEMPLE, MOUNTAIN, or anything made or built by men. It is established in the HEART of every man whose name is engraved in the BOOK OF LIFE, by PROPHETIC REVELATION of the WORD of God.

2. There was a MEMORIAL OF FAITH in Egypt, as the Bible says: “And Joseph took an oath of the children of Israel, saying, GOD WILL SURELY VISIT YOU, and YE SHALL CARRY UP MY BONES from hence” (Genesis 50:25) The TOMB of Joseph did not qualify as the MEMORIAL OF FAITH because it was not a PROPHETIC EDIFICE and did not require REVELATION to comprehend. But the message of Joseph was PROPHETIC, being a SURE PROMISE from God to deliver Israel from bondage and establish His people in the Promised Land. The rotten BONES of Joseph spoke as a REMINDER of man’s inability to SAVE his own SOUL or do what God ALONE can do. Not everyone “SAW’ and or “HEARD” the BONES. Those who did, did so by REVELATION. They were constrained by what they “SAW” and “HEARD” to shift their gaze from what was happening around them to what Joseph said God WILL DO. By turning to God, the MEMORIAL OF FAITH was raised in their HEARTS to the PROMISE of God. This MEMORIAL not made by men or angels comforted and preserved Israel through many years of cruel persecution in Egypt till they were delivered from bondage.

3. The MEMORIAL OF FAITH in Egypt expired as soon as Israel crossed the Red Sea. Other MEMORIALS were raised down through the ages but were all peculiar to Israel. When it pleased God to be manifest in Jesus Christ, a UNIVERSAL MEMORIAL OF FAITH was raised for all men, irrespective of nationality and colour, as it is written: “For in that she hath poured this ointment on my body, SHE DID IT FOR MY BURIAL. Verily I say unto you, WHERESOEVER THIS GOSPEL SHALL BE PREACHED in the WHOLE WORLD, there shall also this, that this WOMAN HATH DONE, BE TOLD FOR A MEMORIAL OF HER” (Matthew 26:12-13) No stones were gathered for this MEMORIAL as Joshua did at Jordan or a TOMB specially constructed for the body of Jesus Christ as was done for Joseph [Joshua 4:7] There was nothing PROPHETIC about the ALABASTER BOX or the PRECIOUS OINTMENT. The MEMORIAL was in her HEART. She understood by PROPHETIC REVELATION that God was manifest in Jesus Christ, to SAVE MANKIND through His DEATH and RESURRECTION [1 Timothy 3:16] She acted by FAITH and by her action was born a UNIVERSAL MEMORIAL OF FAITH that endures till today. This MEMORIAL OF FAITH is the PREACHING of the GOSPEL of Jesus Christ for the SALVATION of the world.

4. The PREACHING of the GOSPEL of Jesus Christ in all nations, in this generation, is the SURE SIGN of the END of Time and of His Coming, as it is written: “And this GOSPEL SHALL BE PREACHED IN ALL THE WORLD AND THEN SHALL THE END COME” [Matthew 24:14] If you are BORN AGAIN, this verse should stir up in you a REMINDER of the PROMISE of TRANSLATION and encourage you to earnestly prepare for His Coming. I exhort you to examine your FAITH in line with the MEMORIAL acceptable to God, knowing fully well that “…no man knoweth who the Son is, but the Father; and who the Father is, but the Son, and HE TO WHOM THE SON WILL REVEAL HIM” [Luke 10:22] Who is the SON. who is the FATHER? I bare witness that this is the MYSTERY we must unravel to be SAVED. The woman in Matthew 26: 12-13, saw God through the FLESH and garments won by Jesus Christ. She BELIEVED by PROPHETIC REVELATION that Jesus Christ is the FATHER manifest in the SON to DIE for us, so we might be SAVED. She acted on her FAITH by ANOINTING Him in preparation for His DEATH and the UNIVERSAL MEMORIAL OF FAITH was raised in her honour.

5. Beloved, there are many MASQUERADES in the world packaged and presented as Jesus Christ. You must not be deceived by those who PREACH Christ as one of three gods sharing one throne, an angel or a religious icon. How did you come to know Jesus Christ, by HEARSAY or by PROPHETIC REVELATION? After listening to the woman at the well PREACH Christ to them, the people of Samaria had MEMORIALS OF FAITH raised in their HEARTS and they confessed, saying: “…NOW WE BELIEVE, NOT BECAUSE OF THY SAYING, FOR WE HAVE HEARD HIM OURSELVES, and KNOW THAT THIS IS INDEED CHRIST, THE SAVIOUR OF THE WORLD” [John 4:42] The MEMORIAL OF FAITH acceptable to God is the TESTIMONY of Jesus Christ. Have you heard Jesus Christ speaking to you, saying: “I and my Father are one [John 10:40] If not, the foundation of your FAITH is on sinking SAND. If you have His MEMORIAL in your HEART, encourage with the SURE PROMISE of His Coming. If you are not sure where you stand, accept the PROPHETIC REVELATION of Jesus Christ today as your Lord and Saviour and remain blessed forever in Jesus name, amen.

TEACH US TO NUMBER OUR DAYS

The numbering of DAYS in months and years demonstrate the limitation of TIME and certainty of our MORTALITY. God is IMMORTAL and is not limited by our CALENDARS. The Bible says: “But, beloved, BE NOT IGNORANT of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day” (2 Peter 3:8) I will tell you what this mean. All the TIME allotted to every man born on earth is ONE DAY by God’s calculation. The DAY is divided into NIGHT and DAWN. The NIGHT is the season of IGNORANCE, MORTALITY and everlasting ALIENATION from God. When the WISDOM of God DAWNS on man, he is delivered from ALIENATION to RECONCILIATION with God and IMMORTALITY. The Psalmist saw through the IGNORANCE of counting DAYS and YEARS and desired WISDOM to LIVE FOREVER. He said to God: “SO TEACH US TO NUMBER OUR DAYS, THAT WE MAY APPLY OUR HEARTS TO WISDOM” (Psalms 90:12) Jesus Christ is both the “…POWER of God, and the WISDOM of God…” to deliver you from bondage to IGNORANCE and DEATH into the marvellous DAWN of EVERLASTING LIFE (1 Corinthians 1:24) If any man dies without applying his heart to the WISDOM of God in Jesus Christ, he is condemned to the lake of fire and forever separated from God. As we journey through TIME, are you in the DARKNESS of NIGHT or the GLORIOUS DAWN of ETERNAL LIFE? Allow God to TEACH YOU to NUMBER YOUR DAYS. Choose WISDOM today and live forever in Jesus Christ, amen.

THERE WAS NO MORE SEA

Seas, rivers and oceans presently cover more than 70% of the earth’s surface. Ocean currents regulate climatic patterns and serve as final dump site for all effluents of human existence. More than 4,000 years after the DELUGE, the earth is battered, the oceans polluted and “the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain“, distressed by nature gone crazy (Romans 8:22) I bare witness that CLIMATE CHANGE is real, but the solution is not in man. God has determined that “the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up” (2 Peter 3:10) The Most High has a wonderful plan to restock His NEW HEAVEN and NEW EARTH with men and women who are conformed to His image and likeness through Jesus Christ. Apostle John said: “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea” (Revelation. 21:1) The earth, when free of vagaries of CLIMATE, shall be restored to the lush Garden of Eden. For those who care to know, I can tell we are in the LAST DAYS of this wicked world. I use this opportunity to invite you to book your place in NEW HEAVEN and NEW EARTH by receiving Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour. Hold on to your FAITH and I will see you on the other side of time, amen

NO MORE TEARS

Tears summarize the PAINS and AGONY of living in a dying world. The phrase, THE RICH ALSO CRY, is ever so real today than ever before, as rich and poor nations alike groan under burdens of overwhelming distress. The Lord Jesus Christ sees your TEARS and feels your PAINS, as one who previously dwelt in the FLESH as you do. He sees the frantic moves of the nations to restore peace and prosperity. Alas, God has ordained every one of their moves to fail and “…when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them…” (1 Thessalonians 5:3) Beloved, this world is beyond repair and “the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up” (2 Peter 3:10) God has prepared for those who LOVE and WORSHIP Him, a new heaven and new earth where there shall be NO MORE TEARS, as it is written: “And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away” (Revelation 21:4) Imagine a world without DEATH, SORROW, CRYING and PAIN. I am sure that is where you want to be. It is yours for FREE through Jesus Christ. Accept Jesus Christ today as your Lord and Saviour and stake your claim to EVERLASTING LIFE in new heaven and new earth, amen.

WHO THE CAP FITS…

When Apostle Peter wrote his Second Epistle, Chapter 2:18-19, he had two caps in mind. The FIRST CAP was for preachers who profane sacred oracles of God with “GREAT SWELLING WORDS OF VANITY”, as the Bible says: “For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error” (Vs 18) The SECOND CAP was for hapless captives caught in the web of their DECEPTION. Beloved, I warn you to beware of those who make CANDY-COATED PROMISES to entice your FLESH but have no BREAD for your SPIRIT. The Bible says: “While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage” (Vs19) The FIRST CAP is the insignia of those who HUNT SOULS to destruction, in the mold of Nimrod (Genesis 10:8-9) The SECOND CAP
is for those caught in the snares of VAGABOND CHURCH! WHOEVER THE CAP FITS, we have an ADVOCATE and SAVIOUR in Jesus Christ. Return to the Lord today and be cleansed “…WITH THE WASHING OF WATER BY THE WORD” (Ephesians 5:26)

CHRISTMAS IS YOUR PASSPORT TO ETERNITY

CHRISTMAS IS YOUR PASSPORT TO ETERNITY. And it need not be MERRY, as long as it is VALID. The Bible says:

“For GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have EVERLASTING LIFE” (John 3:16)

Global celebration of Christmas is a WITNESS of God’s OFFER of LOVE and RECONCILIATION to ALL MEN. Christmas is the gateway to ETERNITY, not the destination. The occasion calls for sober reflection. As we mark the day of Christ’s birth, let us acknowledge and FOCUS on HIS COMING, to reap the reward of His SACRIFICE. Making MERRY on a day like this without apprehending the VISA to ETERNITY is living in FOOLS PARADISE. Beloved, wisdom dictates that REJOICING is not the same as MERRY MAKING. Don’t break the bank to be MERRY.REJOICING is godly and in the Lord. MERRY MAKING is material and prone to excesses. Let us REJOICE in Spirit and look forward earnestly to our MERRY MAKING at the MARRIAGE SUPPER of the LAMB. Therefore, I caution you to be sober and “…work out your own SALVATION with fear and trembling” Philippians 2:12

BEWARE OF DOGS

1. Apostle Paul wrote to the Church in Philippi, saying: “BEWARE OF DOGS, beware of EVIL WORKERS, beware of the concision” [Philippians 3:2] EVIL WORKERS in that generation were renegade Jews, who professed FAITH in Jesus Christ, but wallowed like DOGS in VOMIT, “ … according to the true proverb, The DOG IS TURNED TO HIS OWN VOMIT again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire” [2 Peter 2:22] Their VOMIT was the mess of rituals and works of the LAW which were done away by the SAVING GRACE of Jesus Christ.

2. BEWARE of DOGS in cassocks, who have forsaken GRACE and soiled themselves in man-made creeds. They BARK to be heard, “…speaking great swelling words, having MEN’S PERSONS IN ADMIRATION BECAUSE OF ADVANTAGE (Jude 1:16) BEWARE of DOGS in priestly robes, who will bring you into BONDAGE to rules and doctrines alien to the gospel of Jesus Christ and wreck your home. They go about with effusive show of godliness, leading captive SILLY WOMEN”, to turn them against their spouses (2 Timothy 3:6)

3. BEWARE of those who BARK and HOWL to sell to the highest bidder, what they FREELY received of the Lord. They are GREEDY DOGS who shall be put to shame by the Lord at His Coming. They BARK and BITE to feel their belly, but the “… LORD KNOWETH THEM THAT ARE HIS. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity” [2 Timothy 2:19] Beloved, the appearance of the Lord is at hand, I charge you to deliver yourself, before it is too late, from the congregation of DOGS, “… THAT YE BE NOT PARTAKERS OF HER SINS, and that ye receive not of her plagues” (Revelation 18:4)

And to the DOGS out there, I plead with you to return to the Lord Jesus Christ today for your healing and restoration, amen
