We are at war!



I received a call from my classmate telling me that a onetime freshman “Toke” is now pregnant for about six months….. This is the same girl I spoke about a while ago in this post ‘’Virginity where did we keep it” she was making fun of me about being virgin”.

I’m not writing this post to mock her in any way! I’m here to say we’re at war. I got to talk to her during her freshman year, about her Christian life; she complained that since she got into school, she hasn’t had time to have “a special time for herself and GOD”. She’s a regular Christian like me and you.

Toke was beautiful, when she arrived into our college, at the age of 16, she was full of life, and she got the chance to study the course she had always wanted. Toke even had a boyfriend who did not believe in pre-marital sex. The guy was not in the same school with us, she was later swayed by some guy, I don’t understand how she settled for him, and he was some kind of a rough and cultic guy.
Christians are losing it every day, the devil is moving like a roaring lion seeking whom to devour and he’s having some people for breakfast!

He that is standing should please take heed less he fall! This is the warning we’re given, try and always have the time to go into the presence of GOD daily.


Yes we have the flesh to battle with, but for every time you go on your knees [a sign of surrendering all!], into the presence of GOD you die every day to flesh and get stronger with GOD and you can be enabled to war with the enemy.

GOD is blunt!





You have to make effort!
With all the hazardous events people tend to conclude, that GOD doesn’t really care, about us! They claim “HE’s GOD, HE has the power to do and undo”.

Christianity is like fruits, vitamins and minerals we do not really make so much effort to take them, but immediately we’re sick and the doctor prescribes them, we claim to be consistent in taking them. But we fail and the circle goes on and on. And life can be so blunt, treat your body well you will live, don’t you will die! Cut your budget cost you’ll be rich or have enough, don’t you’ll end up poor!

In Exodus 17:11-12 the Israelites were at war with the Amalekites, GOD blessed them, in a way that if Moses raises up his hands they win, and they lose if he drops them. They had to make effort to keep winning, by putting up Moses’s hands when he got tired.
GOD was been frank there. He did not give Moses the power to raise his hands all day, because he had to be human at some point, everything cannot be handed down to him all the time.
   
The journey of a thousand miles begins with a step, trust GOD and you get a boost! But with hard work and discipline the journey gets completed!

The line has been drawn



                                                
The celebrations have come to an end, the excess foods have reduced, and the freezer is becoming to look like what we once knew. Those on vacation have now returned home, or at least planning to. The festivities seemed to be one of the longest every year, it seems to always run forever, and everyone wants it to last till eternity and forget about school or work!


Has anyone looked at the last two digits of the year! It’s “13”, an unlucky number! For people, who believe in myths like, good luck and bad luck have a whole lot to deal with this New year!


I had to get the papers on New year’s day, as I passed by my Grandma’s house, I saw a small group of people, gathered on the ground floor, the first thing that came to my mind was, she was dead! Because everyone was looking really sober. 

The police had arrived at the scene, to inspect the situation. I moved passed the crowed and asked my cousin, what happened? He said some guy got electrocuted, during the night! It was someone they all knew.


A lot of things happening here and there, and we need to do more than just behaving right or be law abiding to get by every day. You need some spiritual backing! As you grow physically by eating, drinking and exercising, growing skill wise by going to school, reading books, attending trainings and many more. You also have to improve in your spiritual life. Yes there is a God, with all the evil happening all around, you should give it thought, there must be some kind of reason for all this, (signs of the end time)


People do so many things to be successful, and some or many do frivolous things like “mind-control people” into buying their items to make more profit. For instance the acts I hear of the entertainment industry, people in there joining some cult to gain more power and fame, well I’m not so sure if it’s true, but if they do have hands in devilish acts, it cannot affect me because, “HE that is in me is greater than he that is in the world”. No matter where they get their spiritual backing from, either it’s from India, after so much soul searching and assuming their destiny, or use of astrology to figure what they’re meant to do with their lives, their powers do not have anything on you as you stand with Christ.


You have to decide, where you want to stand, because Christianity is the true spirituality, the one we serve, “CHRIST”, is the reason there’s a Christmas and an Easter, and HE predicted all this end time happenings. I don’t know how much proof you need, Christianity is the true spirituality.


You need the spiritual to operate the physical! It’s about time you know this, you may be born this way or that way, giving excuses for the way you live, but you were meant for this “to serve CHRIST!”
Rom 8:38-39

38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,

39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

There are only two sides to the coin of life its either you choose #CHRIST or Satan…
