Ecclesiastes 9:11 says: “I returned and saw under the sun THAT THE RACE IS NOT TO THE SWIFT, nor the battle to the strong BUT TIME AND CHANCE HAPPENETH TO THEM ALL”. THE God of the Bible is a GOD OF ORDER. He hates disorder, as everything He does is structured in perfect order. ORDER…

Bible Passage: 1 Thessalonians 4: 1-8 Memory Verse: “That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour;” 1 Thessalonians 4:4. Introduction SANCTIFICATION means separation from evil and set apart for the Master’s use, 2 Chron. 29:5, Lev. 27:16. It means to be purified. God wants every vessel sanctified,…

IVF, an acronym for In Vitro Fertilisation, is a process in which a woman’s eggs are removed and mixed with a man’s sperm for pregnancy to take place. Record has it that thousands of babies have been born through this method since 1978, when it was first discovered. And though this procedure is gaining popularity…

“Not everyone that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the Kingdom of heaven.” As our Lord, Jesus Christ, was about to conclude the Sermon on the Mount, He emphasised the ultimate goal of the message, the ultimate goal of His coming and of His sacrifice, the ultimate goal of our faith in Him…

BELOVED, mercy and grace have no value after death. Their value lasts only in this life and if after rapture, you didn’t make it, it will be difficult for you to make it by your own blood. Whoever that dies in sin cannot have the opportunity of repentance again from eternity to eternity.

Can you elaborate on the settings of the global system of the church and your new office? EACH country has a primate. No country has two primates. You can have many archbishops but you only have one primate. So, we have 38 provinces and six extra provincial provinces, though they have not been recognised as provinces. But, if you add them up, you have 44 provinces.

What’s “Seven Saturdays of Wonders” all about? The programme is premised on the wonders God has performed in Nigeria by taking us through the elections without any violence. For this, we are going to appreciate Him.

Biblically, when a man and woman come together as husband and wife, they should become one. “And the two shall become one flesh; so they are no longer two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together let no man separate…” (Marks 10:8,9). Along with all else, it is also expected that a Christian couple would share everything and do everything together. Should this also extend to operating a joint account? In cases where the man or woman earns more, is it still advisable to run joint accounts? Clerics, who discussed the issue with CHRIS IREKAMBA, identified lack of trust as one of the reasons Christian couples shy away from operating joint accounts.

WE get to know God through His words, His ways and act. “God, Who at sundry times and in divers manners, spake in the time past unto the fathers by the prophets, hath in these last days spoken unto us by His Son, Who He hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also He made the worlds; Who being the brightness of His glory, and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purge our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high.” Hebrew 1:1-3. Individuals that encountered God had an exclusive knowledge of Him. At one point, Moses and the Children of Israel knew Him as a mighty deliverer, Who did many miracles to set them free. The Egyptians also came to know God of the Hebrew as mighty Warrior; the one that fights for His people. Abraham knew Him as a covenant keeping God and a great provider. Others encounter (Lazarus, Mary and Martha, widow of Nain and his son) with Jesus during His earthly ministry reveal Him to be the resurrection and life. He has power to forgive sins, justifies (the adulterous woman brought to him and healed the paralysed man). What about Zacchaeus the Jewish tax collector? Some also learnt of Him as a miracle worker, healer and compassionate Saviour. If you have truly met with Jesus, He will teach you many things about His Father and His doctrine. (Matthew 11: 28-30).

ONE of the unresolved mysteries of life is the “POWER OF THE PENDULUM”. The Pendulum Clock is a mechanism whereby through its swinging action, human time is calibrated and measured. The Pendulum clock is a common feature of the Architectural Landscape of the major cities in the U.K. It is interesting to note that for human time to be measured and ascertained, Pendulum must always swing and oscillate. Pendulum is never static; it is always swinging. Even in our modern day digitisation and computerisation, digital time measurement is never static; it is always reading different figures. It is amazing to note the digital clock that reads Eleven or Twelve will soon read One.

Memory Verse: “How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? ... How shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? How shall they hear without a preacher?” (Romans 10:14).

IN God’s governmental dealings with people, the severity of punishment shows the gravity of the sin committed by man. The sin of a false prophet, who deceives multitudes into believing a soul-damning lie, who strengthens men in rebellion against God, who turns people away from the way of salvation into the way of eternal perdition, who changes, adulterates and distorts the Word of God, the sacred constitution of God’s Kingdom, who sins against the clear light of God’s revelation, who by flagrantly sinning encourages others to sin against God, who professes to serve God, being supported by the resources of God’s people, yet serves God’s arch-enemy, Satan and who refuses the pleadings of the Holy Spirit to repent and return to the truth, that preacher’s crime is greater than what our tongue can express. What would you think of doctors who, instead of helping people to live, are injecting them with disease-transmitting viruses? What would our society, any society, think of lawyers, who collect much money from their clients and yet consistently and deliberately make them victims of cruel injustice? What would our government, any government, think of the teachers who, instead of teaching youths to live properly, deliberately teach them the way of evil and death? What God knows about false prophets, which most of us are ignorant of would make shocking and frightening discoveries, when they are eventually disclosed on the judgment day.
