One Last Word

John (7:34) You will look for me, but you will not find me; and where I am, you cannot come.” —
John (8:21) Once more Jesus said to them, “I am going away, and you will look for me, and you will die in your sin. Where I go, you cannot come.” —
John (13:33) “My children, I will be with you only a little longer. You will look for me, and just as I told the Jews, so I tell you now: Where I am going, you cannot come. — The Holy Bible (New International Version)

This is my final blog trying to convince readers that Jesus Christ is the way the truth and the life to God.

One day I will say to some of the readers “see, but I told you more than 100 times where to look but you did not believe me!”

There is a cut off point to everything, a last word and just one more thing to say after which everyone is left to face whatever comes.

My prayer is that when the Lord returns, He will find you and I in His good books.
Amen and amen!

Frozen Love Thawed

Matthew Chapter 24 Verse 12 : Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold,
– The Holy Bible (NIV)
John Chapter 10 Verse 10 : The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
– The Holy Bible (NIV)

People are stiffening up with each passing day because of fear that their neighbour might just be the next hardcore criminal. You just can’t be too sure anymore that people are who they seem to be.
With all the random shootings and bombings, and with all the endless fighting around the world, almost no one seems safe anymore.
Fear breeds more fear and more fear breeds anger and anger breeds violence in a desperate attempt to guarantee ones security and survival. And violence of course breeds more violence.

Humanity is caught up in a vortex of violence. The unpredictable has rendered people more pessimistic. Pessimism, scepticism, fear, doubt, uncertainty and unpredictability are the perfect recipe for fuelling violence and destroying peace and love.

Nevertheless, the reality of the application of Good News of Jesus Christ is the perfect antidote for diffusing the very things that cause people to fight and kill each other. That is why it is called the Good News. The power of the message of Jesus Christ lies in the Love, forgiveness, reconciliation and peace we can have with God and with our fellow human beings.

The power to truly love another person comes directly from God to humanity through the name and authority of Jesus Christ by the power of God’s Holy Spirit.

Granted there is a devil whose job description is to adulterate and oppose any opportunity for people to come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.

Yet to all who sincerely come to Jesus Christ there is the powerful testimony of great uncommon peace from the discovery that God is actually in full control of ones destiny. There is also great consolation and joy to know that life takes on its clear and powerful meaning and purpose in Jesus Christ.

Did you know that God can use you to spread His love wherever there is conflict and hatred?

Why not let God use you to diffuse evil and violence today? Say and do something genuinely peace-loving to someone else in God’s name today! You will be surprised by the effect and the influence you have in establishing reconciliation in your community.

To God we go!

Isaiah (55:6) Seek the Lord while he may be found; call on him while he is near. — The Holy Bible (New International Version)

When I was small I used to enjoy reading Marvin stories.
In one of these funny tales Marvin is sitting on the steps in front of a house when a man runs up to him and says: ” Boy, is your mother at  home? ” Marvin replies “Yes she is”. So the man rings and rings the doorbell but no one comes to answer it. Frustrated, the man asks Marvin why his mother wasn’t answering the door and Marvin replies ” that is because I do not live here!”
This story captures the very essence of the kind of assumptive search that many people make for God, much to their frustration. Some imagine that all they have to do to catch God’s attention is to pay token visits to church, chant a few Psalms, ring some bells, light and arrange some candlesticks and ‘hey presto’  God must come running to answer their prayers. Well, the reality is that things just don’t work that way.
You seek God by reading up about him and taking an active interest in knowing what He is doing, what He wants from you and why He does what He does and drawing closer to Him.
The Bible is the best and most comprehensively effective resource on God that I have found. And boy am I glad I found this resource since I was just a teenager!
By looking at Jesus and learning from Him you are closer to knowing God than you could ever desire to be.
Rub your dreary eyes and start reading the Bible today.
Get to know who Jesus really is. He is the true way to find God. There just is no other more solid and sound way to God.

Overcoming Vanity!

Proverbs (9:10) The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
Proverbs (4:7) The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding.
James Chapter 1 Verse 5 : If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.
– The Holy Bible (NIV)

There you have it! Knowledge, understanding and wisdom! These you do not get by growing a long beard and long nails, sitting still and unwashed for hours in the hot sun or under a spooky tree on a moonlit night. You don’t need to chew on a curd or hum until you’re dumb to get knowledge and wisdom.
These things come from your Creator and all you have to do is to ask Him directly with the decency of respect and trust.
To love and honour God by really listening to Him and by asking Him for help and by humbly obeying Him and by loving and serving the interest of others and not just yourself, is in itself wisdom.
But to deceive yourself and others by accusing God, believing lies about Him, disregarding Him and grumbling and complaining against Him won’t make you any wiser. Instead, you will remain angry, bitter, lost and finally totally perplexed at what life is all about.
Without Godly wisdom, you can study and seek for money, search for recognition and fame until you’re stone cold stiff and blue. It will all have been in vain, like the proverbial ‘chasing after mere wind.’
I would suggest and strongly advise that you make it your number one priority to seek for God’s powerful truth and wisdom in what He has done for you through Jesus your Saviour. The rest of the full meaning of life will fall into its correct perspective once you understand this reality.
Be wiser today than yesterday!

Matchless Love!

Luke Chapter 6 Verse 27 : “But to you who are listening I say: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you,
— The Holy Bible (New International Version)

True love is not for the immature. It is easy for us to say ‘do this and do that and God will be happy’ but when it comes to us really loving and forgiving those who offend us, we balk and our true inner colours are revealed.
You see Jesus is matchless when it comes to love. How many people would die on a cross to offer a chance for forgiveness to those who are killing them and say “Father forgive them because they do not even know what they are doing? “Luke 23:34

Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die.
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Romans 5:7-8 NIV

And how do many people choose to repay Him? With cynicism and scorn? With accusations of falsehood and deceit? With doubt and aspersions?

You must be out of your mind to think that Jesus Christ is a fairy tale! Your grandfather’s heroic tales of war and your great-grandfather’s legacies may be fairy tales and the so called tales of the origins of your ‘royal blood’ may be fairy tales but the powerful and effective knowledge of God’s love and forgiveness through Jesus Christ is still saving the souls of humankind to this blessed day!

I hope that you have made the decision to follow Jesus Christ? If not, then do it today! Do not put it off to another ‘convenient’ time. Do not turn your back in God’s love for you.

Shout out to me at info@clmmediapro.gm if you have made this decision to get your life in sync with God through Jesus Christ.
I will be happy to rejoice with you to know that you have bounced on to the right track of life!

Guilty As Charged!

Romans Chapter 3 Verse 22 : This righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile,
Romans Chapter 3 Verse 23 : for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
Romans Chapter 3 Verse 24 : and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.

The human race, since before the time of all our forefathers, has been full of prejudice, bigotry, racism, tribalism and hatred of strange looking people from different cultures.
Granted we have done our best and come a long way in struggling to patch up our apprehensions of each other with laws and human rights slogans, but we are still full of pretence and indignation when we see the way others behave. Yet, just under a few layers of neurons we are all so totally far from being squeaky clean ourselves. Our very DNA is tinted with bias. This bias is often expressed in the way we generalize our descriptions of people and in the way we blatantly pick and choose who we want to interact with.
We fear that all of a certain group are violent and vicious marauders, so we will keep them at arms length. We fear that all of another group are pork eating, alcoholic warmongers, so we should do our best to stay away from them, we fear that all of a certain skin colour are primitive beasts waiting to pounce and go on the rampage, we fear that all of another skin colour are manipulative, exploitative, deceitful, trouble-making wizards, that this group and that group are nothing but class-conscious, stooge-making racists. And nearly everyone is either shouting it out or saying in secret “watch out for them!”
Well, guess what? God, who created us all says that we are all damned for it,  and declares us all guilty! He has declared that we cannot escape His judgment. Without accepting our guilt and receiving His forgiveness we are doomed to fail. We cannot work our way around this one, because God will not budge.
We all need to be forgiven by God and we need to forgive and be reconciled to our fellow human beings regardless of colour, culture or creed. We will never succeed in doing this without God.
We need to understand the extent of God’s love for us all. And we need to love each other. Without learning about God’s love for all humanity, as expressed through Jesus Christ, we will not make it.
Get in the good side of God today! Love your fellow human being!

Do you plan to Outrun God?

Isaiah Chapter 40 Verse 28 : Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom.

2 Peter (3:9) The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. — The Holy Bible (New International Version)

Can you outrun yourself? So what makes you believe that you can outlast, outrun or outwit your Creator God?
God’s patience is often misinterpreted as acquiescence, His entreaties are like an approval of wantonness, His grace and the space that He gives us to improve our behaviour is often misunderstood as His non-existence.

So many people now think and have the audacity to claim that God is dead. Many in our generation have chosen to defy and mock Him .
But this is a serious error and a grave miscalculation. The tons of evidence that have been recorded and that continue to be recorded of mankind’s experiences with God should be a check for anybody who hears about them. Why anyone would live to risk the future of his or her soul is still an astounding mystery to me.

Will you outmatch God? Who can rescue you from His hand in the day of His judgment? If God is also for you, then who can really stand against you? Only a real fool will ignore the voice of his Creator.

Promise yourself not to rest until you have been found acceptable to God your maker and the maker of everything. Be concerned for your soul and for the souls of your loved ones.

Time is soon gone and the things that you used to take for granted like walking, jumping, thinking and breathing easy, will be no longer so simple. So why not discover the great and wonderful things that the living God has got in store for you and for all those who put their trust in Him and for those who walk in obedience and love towards Him and towards others?

Turn your attention to Jesus Christ today. In Him is found all the secrets of the meaning of life.
