What is testimony?

Testimony is a statement or declaration of a witness under oath or affirmation, usually in court. It is an evidence in support of a fact or statement; proof.

In faith it is an open declaration or profession, as of faith. Usually, testimonies is the precepts of God. God lives in Praises.

Given testimony or bear witness to what God has done for you brings gladness to Him and it is an application for more. If you give your testimony on one thing God has done for you, be ready to receive another miracle.

Testimonies must accompany Miracles. Why is Testimony important.

Testimony is so important that God commanded Moses to build an ark of testimony and keep his unusual acts or miracles inside it.

As the LORD commanded Moses, so Aaron laid it up before the Testimony, to be kept. And the children of Israel ate manna forty years, until they came to an inhabited land; they ate manna until they came to the border of the land of Canaan. (‭Exodus‬ ‭16‬:‭34-35‬ NKJV).

And you shall put into the ark the Testimony which I will give you. (‭Exodus‬ ‭25‬:‭16‬ NKJV). You shall put the mercy seat upon the ark of the Testimony in the Most Holy. (‭Exodus‬ ‭26‬:‭34‬ NKJV)

They ate manna for 40 Years and non of the suffered diabetes, sickness from eating manna. This testimony was kept in the ark of Testimonies and is written down in the Bible and that is why we are reading about it today.

One of God favorite servant was King David. God said, David is a man after my hearts. Why did God favor David to the point of establishing an everlasting covenant with him?

Is King David the most Holy, Righteous person or was he a sinner, an adulterous man and a man that kill the husband of Barsheba in other To cover his sins? Why? Why my father? Why did you say David is a man after my hearts? Why did God establish everlasting Covenant with David?

Hear what God said, in Psalm 89:20-29
“I have found My servant David; With My holy oil I have anointed him, With whom My hand shall be established; Also My arm shall strengthen him. The enemy shall not outwit him, Nor the son of wickedness afflict him. I will beat down his foes before his face, And plague those who hate him. “But My faithfulness and My mercy shall be with him, And in My name his horn shall be exalted. Also I will set his hand over the sea, And his right hand over the rivers. He shall cry to Me, ‘You are my Father, My God, and the rock of my salvation.’ Also I will make him My firstborn, The highest of the kings of the earth. My mercy I will keep for him forever, And My covenant shall stand firm with him. His seed also I will make to endure forever, And his throne as the days of heaven.”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭89:20-29‬ ‭NKJV‬

Why Did God Love David So much?

King David loves to give testimony about God goodness. He was not ashamed to give praises and testimony about his God. When God forgive him. He gives testimonies. When God show him mercy, He gives Testimonies and when God bless him, He gives testimonies
When God rebuke him, he praise him? When Heal him, He gives testimonies. When he suffered the consequences of his actions, he praises God.

Now put yourself in God’s position as a father or as a mother. You have a son that alway talk good things about you. When you buy him things he gives testimonies. When you discipline him, he thank you and praise your name. He is alway happy to have a parent. What would you do for such an appreciative son or daughter? You will Love and trust such son or daughter. You will write the name of that son or daughter in your WILL.

That

If you want God’s favor and his smile upon your lives, Give testimonies. Follow me to read some of the Testimonies as written by King David.

Your testimonies I have taken as a heritage forever, For they are the rejoicing of my heart.(Psalms‬ ‭119‬:‭111‬ NKJV).

Have received anything from God today or yesterday or last year? Has God heal you of any sickness or disease?
Give testimonies so that that your healing can permanently.
Do you over a challenge in your education or at your business or career? Give testimonies so that that challenge can be permanently defeated?

You can defeat Cancers and you defeat death with your testimonies
You can overcome the power of the enemies by your testimonies

Revelation 12:11 says,”And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony’s?Revelation 12:11

King Hezekiah Defeated death by giving testimonies to God
and God added fifteen more years to his life 2 King 20:1-6

If your Doctor report says, you have six months left to live, reject the doctor report and come to Jesus, the great physician and you shall be healed in the mighty name of Jesus.

You need to contact me as soon as possible and l will teach you how receive your healing in the name of Jesus.

Did Jesus approve Testimonies

Then He put out His hand and touched him, saying, “I am willing; be cleansed.” Immediately the leprosy left him. And He charged him to tell no one, “But go and show yourself to the priest,
and make an offering for your cleansing,
as a testimony to them, just as Moses commanded.” (‭Luke 5‬:‭13-14‬ NKJV)

I will speak of Your testimonies also before kings, And will not be ashamed. (‭Psalms‬ ‭119‬:‭46‬ NKJV)

I have more understanding than all my teachers, For Your testimonies are my meditation. (‭Psalms‬ ‭119‬:‭99‬ NKJV)

Revive me according to Your lovingkindness, So that I may keep the testimony of Your mouth. (‭Psalms‬ ‭119‬:‭88‬ NKJV)

Blessed are those who keep His testimonies, Who seek Him with the whole heart!

I have rejoiced in the way of Your testimonies, As much as in all riches.

Remove from me reproach and contempt, For I have kept Your testimonies.

Your testimonies also are my delight And my counselors.

I cling to Your testimonies; O LORD, do not put me to shame!

Incline my heart to Your testimonies, And not to covetousness.

I will speak of Your testimonies also before kings, And will not be ashamed.

I thought about my ways, And turned my feet to Your testimonies.

The wicked wait for me to destroy me, But I will consider Your testimonies.

I have more understanding than all my teachers, For Your testimonies are my meditation.

You put away all the wicked of the earth like dross; Therefore I love Your testimonies.

I am Your servant; Give me understanding, That I may know Your testimonies.

Your testimonies are wonderful; Therefore my soul keeps them.

Your testimonies, which You have commanded, Are righteous and very faithful.

The righteousness of Your testimonies is everlasting; Give me understanding, and I shall live.

I cry out to You; Save me, and I will keep Your testimonies.

Concerning Your testimonies, I have known of old that You have founded them forever.

Many are my persecutors and my enemies, Yet I do not turn from Your testimonies.

My soul keeps Your testimonies, And I love them exceedingly. I keep Your precepts and Your testimonies, For all my ways are before You. (‭Psalms‬ ‭119‬:‭2, 14, 22, 24, 31, 36, 46, 59, 95, 99, 119, 125, 129, 138, 144, 146, 152, 157, 167-168‬ NKJV)

Examples of those who Give their Testimonies

The Legion Man /Lunatic Man
Luke 8:39
“The man from whom the demons had gone out begged to go with him, but Jesus sent him away, saying, “Return home and tell how much God has done for you.” So the man went away and told all over town how much Jesus had done for him.”(Luke‬ ‭8:38-39‬ ‭)

John 4:39
“Many of the Samaritans from that town believed in him because of the woman’s testimony, “He told me everything I ever did.” So when the Samaritans came to him, they urged him to stay with them, and he stayed two days. And because of his words many more became believers.”(John‬ ‭4:39-41‬ )

God Also give Testimonies

“And when He had removed him, He raised up for them David as king, to whom also He gave testimony and said, ‘I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after My own heart, who will do all My will.’”
‭‭Acts‬ ‭13:22‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Many people today are turning to religion prosperity doctrines in search of economic wellbeing and to break free from economic slavery.
Mostly in poor countries where the government and corrupt officials have denied the citizenry of their basic necessities of life; it is a no wonder poor people the world over are turning to a prosperity doctrine as a panacea to their economic problems.
For example, in Nigeria, every available kiosk, shops, and flats have been converted into churches. The doctrine is either prosperity or miracles. In spite of numerous churches and Mosques, corruption, stealing, robbery, kidnapping, and religion terrorism continues unabated. All these people belong to one religion or the other. Why may you ask?

When people are hungry and their lives are at risk, they will do anything to survive, regardless of their religion. You can hardly find a trusted friend in the church or upright men and woman of God.
Many church leaders are now in the dilemma of teaching prosperity as a Christian doctrine because that is what people want to hear. Bishop Oyedepo said, “Food is the goodness to a hungry person and employment is the good-news to the unemployed graduates”. This is true. That was why many Pentecostal churches are having an overwhelming membership.
The fact is, the Bible truth is not about material prosperity. The early Apostles did not accumulate material wealth and God counted them worthy of everlasting life. Some of these Christians died a painful death because of their faith in God. God did not prevent their painful death or physical affliction. When any man of God is undergoing some afflictions or test of their faith, some people tend to ask, where is your God?
One lady asked, why would a man of God have a plane crash if it is true that he is serving God? I reminded her that the same reason why God allows his only begotten son to undergo a painful death on the cross. Does that mean Jesus was not serving God? She got the point.
This comment shows their limited understanding of God. Many people have been misled by prosperity teaching which focuses people on only a blissful life and material prosperity.
Jesus said, “If anyone wants to be my follower, let him or her carry their cross and follow him. Anyone who endures to the end shall be safe.” (Matthew 24:13)
These statements put everyone on notice that endurance is a must for all Christians who desire Everlasting Life. Endurance is needed because Servants of God are the target of demonic attack. Endurance is what we need not Material prosperity doctrine. No one can use the money to buy everlasting life.
Trust me your wealth cannot pay for your life either now or in the future, otherwise, Steve Jobs, the founder of Apple Products would have been alive today.
Anthony Bourdain job was to travel the world and to taste food from different part of the world for CNN. The recent deaths of Anthony Bourdain and Kate Spade by suicide shows that money is not the solution to all problems. Therefore, people who come to prosperity churches in search of economic wellbeing may be disappointed and if care is not taken they may be worse off if they did not work hard. Jesus says, those who endured to the end shall be saved.
Apostle Paul was highly anointed to the point that his handkerchief was taken to the sick and they were healed. Yet he was enduring painful afflictions himself. Three times he prayed to Jesus for healing but there was no relief. (2 Corinthians 12:7-9).
Jesus himself prayed to his father, “If this cup can pass over me, but not as I will but let your will be done.” God allowed his only begotten son to die a painful death. His death opened the graves and the dead were resurrected. Mankind has the hope of living forever in God’s kingdom because Jesus endured to the end. Christians are not exception. We must learn to endure to the end of our lives.
Again, Jesus, in advising his disciples about material prosperity, said, “Do not put your treasures on earth where robbers can steal, but rather store up your treasures in Heaven, where thieves and robbers cannot reach, for where your treasures is that is where your heart will be” (Matthew 6:19-21).
Jesus advice was to put your heart in God’s Kingdom as the only solution to all your problems. Material prosperity is not the solution.
Poverty does not glory God either. All God’s servants are rich both materially and spiritually. But they don’t pray for it because God knows their needs before they ask. Preaching and praying for riches is not necessary. Why?
The question is do your own children beg you before they eat food in the house, wear their own cloth and wear their own shoes? The answer is no.
Jesus said, in Mathew 6:33 “Seek God’s Kingdom first and its righteousness and all these others things will be added unto you.” You don’t need to pray for what belong to your father in the Heavens. He knows that you need them before you ask for it.
Instead of teaching materialism doctrines, we should concentrate on preaching God’s requirements for salvation such as bearing the fruits of God’s Holy Spirit in our lives which is
LOVE, JOY, PEACE, Kindness, Faith, Goodness and self control. The Bible says there is no law against the Fruits of the Holy Spirit. For examples, God’s Servants like Solomon, Job and King David, Bishop Oyedepo they never pray for material things but they are supernaturally rich because they spend their time serving God.
Let us emulate their good examples.
However many pastors today are in predicament between preaching material prosperity and have overflowing crowd of people in their church or preach salvation and have fewer people in the Church. Greed and ignorance makes people to want to become rich at all cost. Some people want to be identified with mega churches. In my ministries when I invite people to come for a Bible studies, their question is how many people are in your church? People are looking for where they will be entertained and to have their inching ears tickled.
Apostle Paul predicted this, in 2 Timothy 4:3-4, “For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.”(2 Timothy ‭4:3-4‬)

Satan the Devil is the god of this system and he was the first person to use materialism to lure Jesus for worship.
He took him to an unusual high mountain and showed him the kingdom of this world and the glittering glory of it and said to Jesus, “I will give you this entire kingdom and its glory if you worship me.” Jesus rejected the offer and said, get behind me Satan, it is written Worship only the true God.” (Matthew 4:8-10).
Therefore, material prosperity is not a Christianity doctrine. Jesus did not teach it as doctrine.
The fact is, God is our father and he have unlimited resources to give to his obedient children. Just like our natural parents, an obedient child will be provided with food, clothing, and shelter without struggle and crying. The truth is, anyone who practiced giving shall receive. Anyone who sows seed must reap what what they have sown. If you plant a seed, you must harvest the seed regardless of your belief or religion. These are fundamental law of nature. It is not subject to religion, prayers, or fasting. If you give to the poor, God will repay you whether you pray for it or not. (Genesis 22:8)(Luke 6:38)
Abraham, King Solomon, Job and King David, all these men of God were not Christians and they were very rich without asking God for it. For examples, when God ask Solomon to ask for anything he wants, King Solomon ask for wisdom, discernment and knowledge to rule God’s people. Because of his humility and obedient, God add to him riches, glory and long life(Proverb 22:4). Our God never change, you will not lack anything if you obey divine instructions.
Therefore, the teaching of materialism is very misleading and can put unsuspecting Christians into spiritual drowsiness and sleep. Jesus said, the Lord ‘s day will come as a thief and many Christians will be caught napping, because they will be carried away with mundane things of life. Jesus further said, that day will be like Noah’s day when people are busy accumulating material things, dancing, making merry, marrying and been married and suddenly that day will come as thief.
Our modern day father of faith Bishop Oyedepo and the father of holiness, Pastor Adeboye have written many books on faith and holiness. They have given testimonies of how God supernaturally blessed them because they focus their attention on God’s Kingdom and Kingdom Advancement prayers(Matthew 6:33). The Bible says we should imitate their faith. If you can not imitate their faith and holiness don’t expect God to bless you supernaturally like them.
(Hebrews‬ ‭13:7‬ ‭GNB‬‬)
Before I became a born again Christian, I did not know about tithing and offering but I always give to the poor and to the work of God. Even when I was unemployed, I continued to give. Giving makes me fulfilled and happy. Thank God I did not know poverty either. The point is, God knows your heart condition and He will reward you based on that.
As a Servant of God, Jesus Christ, should be our role model. The Bible says, “Look unto Jesus, the perfecter and finisher of our faith.” (Hebrew 12:2)
Jesus catalogued all the signs that will mark his second coming, such as wars and false prophets and persecution of Christians but material prosperity is not one of those signs of the last days. (Matthew 24:3-50)
If Jesus Christ comes today, where would you be? What is your motivation for serving God? One thing I know for sure, God cannot be fooled with your with your material possessions.
God is not a respectful of persons, anyone whose heart conditions is agreeable with him and endured to the end shall be saved, regardless of their economic status or religion.
Some people are saying material prosperity is a sign of God’s blessings. What about those who did not know God and yet they are materially blessed?
There are places in the world where the good news or Christianity have not been preached yet. Such as where Hinduism, Shintoism, and Islam are the dominant religion. There are millions of people who did not serve our God and yet they are multimillionaires. Therefore, linking material prosperity teaching to Christianity is very misleading. It is not necessary.
This is the time Apostle Paul was talking about. Preaching only material Prosperity is damaging to our spiritual health and it can lead to spiritual death. A true man of God must strike the balance between telling people what they like to hear and what Jesus wants Pastors to tell the flocks. Teaching the Bible truth is the only way to assist people to conform to God’s standards which in turn can lead to Everlasting Life.
Come to think of it, it is contradictory to be accumulating wealth on earth and at same time preaching Heaven, one cannot have it both ways. Apostle Peter painted the picture of what to expect in the last days. (2 Peter 3:10-13)
He said, the present earth and the heavens will melt by fire and destruction. And we are awaiting a new earth and a new heaven where righteousness will dwell. The present earth and the physical heavens have been polluted by man. God wants to create a new earth and new heavens where only the righteous people will live.
To my understanding it is wasteful and foolishness for any believer to be accumulating materials things on this earth that will soon passes away.
Someone may ask what shall we do with church money if we don’t spend it? Church offering and tithes should be used to help the poor, pay the full time Servant of God, such as, pastors and evangelist and organizing crusades, heralding the second coming of Jesus.
Winning Soul for Jesus should be our focus and we should pay the evangelist and the pastors who are taking the lead to win soul for Christ. Jesus said, in Matthew 24:14 that this goodness of the Kingdom will be preached AS A WITNESS to all the nations and then the END shall come.
This means that our major concern is to inform people about God’s Kingdom and its requirements for becoming the citizen of God’s Government. Convincing and conversion belong to Holy Spirit and our God. Jesus said, “No one can come to me unless my father draws him or her.” (John 6:48).
In summary, material prosperity doctrine is not one of Jesus teaching of repentance and grace of salvation. Prosperity is not among the composite signs of Jesus second coming.
Satan was first person to offer materialism to Jesus in exchange for worship. Jesus rejected that offer. The fact is anyone can become rich. Drug barons, unbelievers and anyone can become rich either by God blessing or by demonic powers.
Any obedient sons or daughter of God don’t need to suffer lack of provision because Jesus is a good provider and he will provide for you without problem, if you know your right as a child of God
God said, in Exodus 23:25-26 “you shall serve the LORD and he shall bless your food and water and he take sickness away from you. No one shall be barren and I will fulfill the number of your days”. Obedient in serving God is required to access God’s provisions and everlasting life.

The goal of Jesus Witness Ministries is to win a million souls for Jesus Christ annually and to prepare them to become a citizen of God’s Kingdom.
We would pay full time evangelists and the full time pastors for winning souls for Jesus. We would organize three to four crusades to meet our goals of a million souls for Christ. Our missionaries will take the good news of God’s Kingdom to all human races anywhere in the world. We would focus the attention of the new converts to God’s Kingdom and it’s righteous as permanent solution to all problems.

Are you experiencing stress in your marriage? Is your marriage under attack? Is there frequent fight and argument at home? Is your home becoming a war zone rather peaceful haven? Are you thinking of divorce? Have you reached a breaking point in your relationship? Is your marriage in crisis? If you are one of the people who have been enduring your marriage, this message is for you. The chief marriage wrecker is Satan the devil.
He is the counterfeiter and a destroyer of marriage. One of the God institutions was the marriage between male and female. But what do you have today? Same sex marriages. Satan started to overturn marriage upside down from the Garden of Eden. He imposed Eve as the head of her husband rather than Adam as the head. How did he do this? By letting the woman to taste the fruit of knowledge of Good and bad before Adam does. So the women are wiser than men. They can plan your future of their prospective husband even before they meet the man. Again, Satan introduced violence and killing into the first family. Cain the first son killed Abel his brother. Violence and abuse is not new to the family. Marriage was founded on the principle of Theocracy. Democracy has replaced Theocracy. Paul Apostle says, “we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities and powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places”(Ephesian 6:12). Who are these? Who are the agents of the devil that Satan can use to destroy your marriage? These can be spiritual wife or spiritual husband. They can be your friends and relatives, such as evil in-laws and your own ignorance and pride.

The good new is, Jesus gave all the believers the Power that is greater than that of Satan, but you need activate this power before it can work for you. You Got the Power. Activate it to protect your Marriage.

The fact is Marriage is to be enjoyed and not to be endured.

My message to you is Protect Your Family from Marriage Wreckers.

Jesus promised all the believers that we would receive power when the Holy Spirit arrives upon us. (Act 1:8). All we need to do is to activate this power so that we can use it to protect ourselves and to protect our family from spiritual attack. For example, you may have a million Dollar in your Credit Card (Master or Visa Card) but you need to activate it before you can utilize the money.
If you have not got the power, ask Holy Spirit and it shall be given you, if you ask in faith. (Luke 11:13) Use Jesus language if need be to bring your thought in line with Godly principles. Jesus said to Peter, “Get behind me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me; you do not have in mind the concerns of God, but merely human concerns.” (Matthew 16:23 NIV) A husband or wife can use the same language to bring your partner to reason in Godly way. Like you say, don’t call the police! Jesus can help us iron this out.

If your marriage is in crisis? Jesus Christ can safe your relationship from marriage wrecker. All you need to do is to apply the following counsels.
Forgive yourself and forgive your marriage partner at all times. Do me and I do you destroy marriages. An eye for eye makes everyone a blind person.
Marriage was not based on competition but on cooperation with your partner. Marriage was not base on equal rights but on equal peace in the home. That means don’t fight for your rights but fight for peace in your home. Plant the seed of honor so that you can reap the fruit of honor. Tackled the problems and not the persons. How to tackle the root course of the problem. For example, A couple in Nigeria was having fundamental family problems. After listen to both side, I discovered that both of them are not the problem but the infracstrucral problems in Nigeria. I want them to switch role for one week. That the wife should travel to the husband worksite at Lekki and come back to Alagbado for one week. I was ready to give pay the husband for keeping his children for one week. The husband complained that his wife always stay late at her tailoring shop. She doesn’t cook at home, she does not fetch water and she must go.
The wife said, “ I have no electricity to do my tailoring job during the day. She has to finish the customer job when the NEPA brings light at night. With 4 Children to care for it is difficult to please her husband. I ask the husband, do you want your wife to stop working? He answered no way, her financial contribution is very important. Then my second questions to the husband was, can you take care of three boys for one week and your wife will go out and come back with money? Ha a ? I go die o the man replied. I can’t take care of them for one day. Then I let them know their problem is not about your wife but the infrastructural problem in the country. Which none of you can control. The fight was over because they know their common enemy. They are living peacefully ever since. Another Family was saved in America:
The man never work because there was no working paper. The wife works two jobs to pay the bills and feed the family. The wife got to a breaking points and asked the husband to leave. Why? The husband does nothing in the house to assist the wife. I was invited: I asked the husband, why are you not helping your wife in the kictchen? He said, “ My father never enter kitchen” I told him, that is your father in the village. This is America you need to assist your wife in the house since you’re not working outside the home. You need to change your mentality. The family are now happy living together. All glory be to Jesus. The Bible says, my people are perish for lack of knowledge”(Hosea 4:6). Many times lack of understanding and pride destabilize many homes.
God is the maker of marriage institution and he has a manual to solve any problems that arise from that institution.

The Power of tongue
The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit. (Proverbs 18:21 NIV) This article will analyze how we can utilize the power of our tongue to benefit ourselves and show how some people have use their tongue to hurt themselves. These are some of good examples of people who use their tongue positively. God told king Hezekiah that he would die from his sickness. But the King says NO! I will not die. As a result, God added 15 more years to his life.(2 King 20:1-6) Another example was when Caleb and Joshua entered the promised land because of what they say with their month, while other people died in the wilderness because of their complaints. God tell them, ‘As surely as I live, declares the Lord, I will do to you the very thing I heard you say: (Numbers 14:28 NIV).
The point is what you say with your tongue to your husband, to your wife and to your children and to all the people around you determine your happiness, your good health, and your progress in life. Use your tongue wisely to protect your family. The power is in your tongue use it to benefit yourself and your loved ones. When God created all thing including you, he declared it very good (Gen. 1:25) Anything that is not good is from the devil.
Stop using demonic negative language to yourself and to others. Any behavior that does not befit the Children of God is from the devil. Any statement that does not honor God is from the Enemy. Uncontrollable anger is a spirit of the demons. Uncharitable comment that degrade others people is from the devil. Unforgiving spirit is from the devil. Pride crashes people and God oppose the haughty spirit. Keeping Grudges can cause psychological and physical diseases such as, Cancer, hypertension, strokes, panic attack and many others. Please avoid keeping grudges at all times. “Drudge is a poison that you keep within yourself, hoping it will kill your enemy” according to Former President of South Africa, Nelson Mandela. The Lord will keep you free from every disease. He will not inflict on you the horrible diseases you knew in Egypt, but he will inflict them on all who hate you. In the mighty name of Jesus. Amen. (Deuteronomy 7:15 NIV) Tame your tongue to do you good. The Bible says, “The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit”.(Proverbs 18:21 NIV) Use your tongue to prophesy what type of family you want. Tell your partner I want to be happy today. Tell your children, I want you to make God and me proud today. Your prophesy will come to pass for you in Mighty Name of Jesus. Likewise, the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts. Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark. The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole body, sets the whole course of one’s life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell. (James 3:5, 6 NIV)
Stop judging others, so that they will not judge you. Pray for your enemies so that they may repent. Praise God and people so that you can be praised in return. Apply Bible counsel to yourself.
Say this prayer,
The spirit of Anger is demonic. It is cast out now! In the mighty name of Jesus
Any demonic influence in my life is cast out in The Mighty Name of Jesus.
Any spirit Jealousy is cast out now. In the Mighty Name of Jesus.
The spirit of arrogance is from the devil. Jesus cast it out in my life
My God remove all traces of self-pride in me in the Name of Jesus.
Give me a humble spirit and spirit of modesty in the name of Jesus.
Let my tongue say up-building and uplifting talk in the name of Jesus.
Remember that what you sow is what you will reap.
Say this prayer,
God Let me bear the fruitage of God’s spirit in my life.(Love, Peace, Joy, Patience, Goodness, Kindness, Meekness, Faith and Self-control
Please father give me a forgiving spirit in the mighty name of Jesus
Father removes grudges from me in the Mighty Name of Jesus.
Therefore, you got the power, Use it to protect your family from home wreck.

Destiny: Biblical Evidence of Destiny

DISCOVERING YOUR OWN DESTINY

Every manufacturer of a product knows the functions of the product before it is placed on sale in the market.

For example, Before-your phone was made the maker knows the functions and the the features of the phone before it was placed on sale in the market.

Similarly, our creator and maker Jesus Christ and Jehovah God knows your destiny before you’re born to your parents.

God knows your destination before you begin the journey of your lives.

For example, “God told Jeremiah that before your mother conceived you , I knew thee. I made you a prophet-to the nations”(Jeremiah 1:5).

430 years of Slavery in Egypt

Another example was when God told Abraham: “I Know certainly that your descendants will be strangers in a land that is not theirs, and will serve them, and they will afflict them four hundred years.”(Genesis‬ ‭15:12-15NKJV‬‬).

Abraham seeds spent four hundred and thirty years in bondage as a slave in Egypt. Why? Because God has the abilities to know in advance what you will be in life and what you shall go through before you get there.

One may asked? What is destiny? Destiny is a program God has for your life. God Own plan of God for your life.

The most difficult thing to discover is your own destiny and the plan God has for your lives.

I prayed that God show you your destination before you begin the journey of your life in the mighty name of Jesus.

If you believe me, shout a believing Amen. You shall discover your destiny in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen

This foreknowledge of your life, is known as destiny.

God knows your destination before you were created.

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future(Jeremiah‬ ‭29‬:‭11 NIV).

All these examples shows that God has definite plan for each person before they were born.

However, Satan the devil and the demons, the wicked people, the witches and wizard can also knows your potential and your destiny before you were born.

The devil and her agents can vandalized your destiny. That will not be our portion in the name of Jesus.

religion and disobedience can vandalized ones destiny.

Samson was a bad example, he was destined to avenge for the killing of the Jews by the philisten and to destroy God’s enemies. However, Samson vandalized his own destiny due to disobedience to God’s instructions not to marry pagans. (‭Judges‬ ‭Chapter 13‬ to 16)

Apostle Paul was one of the apostle who believed in predestination and penned down these words in one of his letters to the Romans. He wrote: “For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.”(Romans‬ ‭8:29-30‬ ‭NKJV‬‬)

This means that if you have been predestined to live forever, regardless of your present situation God will bring you to Jesus for salvation.

He will liberate you from secret cult, from false religion and from your own disobedience.

The robber on the cross at the right hand of Jesus was a good example of predestination to be with Jesus in paradise.

Another example was Jacob And Esau, The Lord said to their mother, “Two nations are in your womb, and two peoples from within you will be separated; one people will be stronger than the other, and the older will serve the younger. God further said , Jacob I loved, but Esau I hated.”For he says to Moses, “I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion.(Romans‬ ‭9‬:‭13, 15-16‬)” (‭Genesis‬ ‭25‬:‭23‬ NIV

Even the Demons Know that they have destined time.
And suddenly they cried out, saying, “What have we to do with You, Jesus, You Son of God? Have You come here to torment us before the time?” (‭Matthew‬ ‭8‬:‭29‬ NKJV)

How to Discover Your Destiny:

Isaiah 8:18
I and the children whom the LORD has given me! We are for signs and wonders in Israel From the LORD of hosts, Who dwells in Mount Zion.(Isaiah‬ ‭8:18‬ ‭NKJV‬‬)

This means your children are not a product of chance or unforeseen occurrences. They are for signs and wonders to their generation. They are equip with different talents and gifts. However their environment determines how far,they can achieve in life. Their parents , their religious and their friends can alter their destiny for good or bad.

for in Him we live and move and have our being, as also some of your own poets have said, ‘For we are also His offspring.’ Therefore, since we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Divine Nature is like gold or silver or stone, something shaped by art and man’s devising. Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent, (‭Acts‬ ‭17‬:‭28-30‬ NKJV)

In summary, whatever that is happening to you God knows the beginning and the end of all matters. He created some people for his glory and made THEM vessel for honorable purpose.

While he made some people for destruction and for dishonorable purpose. It does not, therefore, depend on human desire or effort, but on God’s Wills and mercy. A Child of Destiny

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭29:11‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Roman 8:28-30

“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.
For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.
Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.”(Romans‬ ‭8:28-30‬)

Isaiah 8:18

“Here am I and the children whom the LORD has given me! We are for signs and wonders in Israel From the LORD of hosts, Who dwells in Mount Zion.(Isaiah‬ ‭8:18‬ ‭NKJV‬‬)

I am created to bring glory to God.

Jeremiah
““Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.””
‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭1:5‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Samson
“And He said to me, ‘Behold, you shall conceive and bear a son. Now drink no wine or similar drink, nor eat anything unclean, for the child shall be a Nazirite to God from the womb to the day of his death.’ ””
‭‭(Judges‬ ‭13:7‬ )

You Must Have a Vision to Fulfill Your Mission on Earth.

Revelation 10:5

2 Peter 1:3

“Then Isaac sowed in that land, and reaped in the same year a hundredfold; and the LORD blessed him. The man began to prosper, and continued prospering until he became very prosperous;”
‭‭Genesis‬ ‭26:12-13‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Matthew 5:13
““You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.”(Matthew‬ ‭5:14‬ ‭)

Proverb 29:18

“Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path.”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭119:105

Therefore I pray for you today:

Destiny helpers will locate you in the mighty name of Jesus
Destiny promoters will find you in the mighty name of Jesus
Destiny announcers shall announce you in the mighty name of Jesus
Destiny lifters shall lift you above your enemies in the mighty name of Jesus
My God shall bless you with wisdom to discover your destiny in the mighty name of Jesus.
My God shall prevent the demonic agents from vandalizing your destiny in the name of Jesus.
Receive light to discover your destiny and to fulfill them in the name of Jesus.

Jesus invited people from all races and tribes to come to him for salvation because there is no salvation in anyone else. His God’s given assignment is to create and to give life. Jesus said, “I am the door; whoever enters through me will be saved, and he will go in and out and find pasturage. And I give them everlasting life, and they will by no means ever be destroyed, and no one will snatch them out of my hand.
(John 10:7-9,28, NWT)
However, some Modern Day religious leaders write and invite people to come to their religion Organization for salvation and they even Baptized new convert in the name of the Spirit Directed Organization.
“The Watchtower Society says, “Come to Jehovah’s organization for salvation” – Watchtower 1981 Nov 15 p.212
These teachers are diverting the attention of the sheep to a man made printing corporations and from Jesus Christ. Their invitation is in direct conflicts with Jesus position and Office as the Chief Agent of Life. Their false and misleading teachings put heavy load on their followers with countless rules and regulations. Their religion organization cannot lead anyone to salvation but to destruction. For example, frequent use of Jesus name in praise and worship is unwittingly forbidden. The Worship of Jesus and praying to Jesus is considered idolatry. One cult members told me that She would rather seek healing from traditional healers than for anyone to say In the Name of Jesus be healed. That was to the extent she had been brainwashed to hate Jesus. The organization is raising a group of anti-Christ.
The Watchtower Society discouraged their members from eating and drinking Jesus symbolic body and blood. Claiming that you have to be among the 144,000 heavenly hopeful before you can qualify to partake of the emblems. What a pity!
Jesus did not mention Heaven or Earth but obedience but everlasting life.
Another faulty reason was that you must be holy before you eat and drink Jesus symbolic body and blood. They have forgotten that Apostle Peter denied knowing Jesus after he had partook in the eating and drinking the blood of Jesus. This show perfection is not required. Jesus required obedience from all believers to partake in other to gain everlasting life.
One brother told me that only the foundation members are required to partake and that not all his seventy followers are qualify to partake. That was a faulty reasoning. Jesus required all his followers to partake but only the eleven disciples partook the Holy Communion because others deserted Him at hearing Him says, “unless you eat my flesh and drink my blood, you have no life”(John 6: 60-68)
To gain the full benefits of been a Christian, OBEDIENCE in the following areas is very important: Faith in the ransom sacrifice of Jesus, Baptism with Water and Baptism with Holy Spirit, Partaking in the symbolic flesh and blood of Jesus Christ. (John 3:3,5, John 6: 48-57).
Jesus invited people out of compassion for their welfare and salvation when he said,”Come to me, all YOU who are toiling and loaded down, and I will refresh YOU. Take my yoke upon YOU and learn from me, for I am mild-tempered and lowly in heart, and YOU will find refreshment for YOUR souls. For my yoke is kindly and my load is light.”(Matthew 11:28-30)
No religion on Earth can boast of giving anyone salvation because there is no salvation in anyone else, for there is not another name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must get saved.”(Acts 4:12) That was why Apostle Peter boldly told the Jewish religious leaders after healing a paralyzed man. “Let it be known to all of you and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead—by this name this man stands here before you in good health. … And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved.” —Acts 4:10, 12, New American Standard Bible. There is no other savior than Jesus.
There is no savior in Hindus, Buddism, Mohammedaism there is no savior in any religion than Jesus. Only Jesus Christ is still alive and he promised to give you life eternal.
When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” (John 8:12, 32 NIV)
Following a religion organization leads to darkness and falsehood because they disobey Jesus conditional instructions to eat his flesh and drink his blood as a condition for everlasting life. They reject the worship and praising of Jesus.
Jesus said again: “Most truly I say to YOU, I am the door of the sheep. All those that have come in place of me (false Teachers)are thieves and plunderers; but the sheep have not listened to them. I am the door; whoever enters through me will be saved, and he will go in and out and find pasturage. And I give them everlasting life, and they will by no means ever be destroyed, and no one will snatch them out of my hand. (John 10:7-9,28, NWT)
Thomas was a man of physical faith who believe what he sees. He wants Jesus to show him the way to salvation. Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (John 14:6 KJV.
The implication of Jesus declaration that “I am the Way” that is there is no other way to salvation beside Jesus because his duty is to grant salvation to all believers. This declaration is consistent with all the prophets. (Isaiah 43:11 and Luke 2:11)
Again Jesus Declared “I am the Truth” this means that there is no other Truth beside Jesus. In his last prayers he beg his father to sanctify his believers by means of the truth because your WORD, Jesus is the Truth. Any religious organizations who nicknamed herself as the Truth is stealing the title that belong to Jesus. This amounted to impersonation of Jesus and his father. (John 10:7-9)
Jesus Declared, “I am LIFE”. This means Jesus is the source of life because he created everything both in Heaven and on Earth. Things visible and thing invisible. His duty is to create Life and to give you life. He is the agent of life. (Colossians 1:15-16)
This is consistent with all Scriptures. For example, John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him (Jesus) should not perish but have everlasting life”. (‭John‬ ‭3‬:‭16‬, 1 John 5: 9-12 NKJV).
Therefore, anyone who fails to recognize Jesus as the only Way, as the Only Truth and as the only Life , does so at their own perils. It is just like a very hard working fellow who work hard in a corporation but failed to clock in before he start to work. At the end of the week, he will not get paid despite his activities. Similarly any person who fail to recognize Jesus position as the Life Giver and Mighty God will find themselves to blame. No wonder Jesus will declare them workers of lawlessness because they lack practical faith in Jesus. (Mathew 7:21-23)
Another fitting illustration is, if you’re a rich father who appointed your son as the Chief Executive officer and the President of your corporations. You gave him the power to hire and fire workers and to pay their wages and salaries. But certain few old workers refuse to recognize your son position and bypass him and comes to you for their salaries, if you’re the father, would you pay the salaries of those insubordinate workers? The answer is NO. Similarly regardless of how many hours of preaching activities one does without recognizing Jesus Position as a Life Giver who deserves our worship and honor and glory, the person mighty be working in vain.
Jesus is the only mediator between God and humans. For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, a man, CHRIST JESUS (1 Timothy 2: 5,NWT
To him all the prophets bear witness, that everyone putting faith in him gets forgiveness of sins through his name.”(Acts 10:43, NWT). Despite all the evidences that Jesus is the only mediator between God and believers, some religious leaders are mis leading their followers that Jesus is not the mediator of everyone. But a mediator for few heavenly Hopeful.
Please read some examples of articles written by the Watchtower Society to elevate the Governing Body to a position of mediatorship.
However, the official doctrine of the Watchtower Society was that Jesus was mediator for the 144,000 alone. “So in this strict Biblical sense Jesus is the “mediator” only for anointed Christians.” Watchtower 1979 Apr 1 p.31
Rationalization on Mediatorship
Likewise, the Greater Moses, Jesus Christ, is not the Mediator between Jehovah God and all mankind. He is the Mediator between his heavenly Father, Jehovah God, and the nation of spiritual Israel, which is limited to only 144,000 members.”
Worldwide Security Under the “Prince of Peace” (1986) pp.10-11
They recognize that they are not spiritual Israelites in the new covenant mediated by Jesus Christ, nor part of the “chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation.”-1 Pet. 2:9. Yet they do benefit from the operation of the new covenant. They benefit from this just as, in ancient Israel, the “alien resident” benefited from residing in among the Israelites who were in the Law covenant.-Ex. 20:10; Lev. 19:10, 33, 34; Rev. 7:9-15. To keep in relationship with “our Savior, God,” the “great crowd” needs to remain united with the remnant of spiritual Israelites.” Watchtower 1979 Nov 15 p.27
“The terms of the Law covenant allowed for persons of all national backgrounds to come into membership of the congregation of Israel by accepting the true worship of Jehovah and becoming circumcised. The alien resident who had become a circumcised worshiper was bound to one law with the Israelites, that is, to obey all the terms of the Law covenant.” Insight on the Scriptures, Volume 1 p.72 Alien Resident
The underlying Watchtower reason for Jesus mediating only for the Anointed is that the New Covenant is said to only apply to the 144,000.
This doctrine elevate and placed the Governing Body as a mediator between rank and file of Jehovah’s Witnesses and Jesus, while Jesus mediate between God and Governing Body.
The fact is non of these Governing Body Members can die for anyone like Jesus.
Apostle John made it clear that God bear witness to Jesus as the only source of life. He said, “And this is the witness given, that God gave us everlasting life, and this life is in his Son. He that has the Son has this life; he that does not have the Son of God does not have this life. I write YOU these things that YOU may know that YOU have life everlasting, YOU who put YOUR faith in the name of the SON of God. (John 5: 1, 2,11-13,NWT)
Again, Everlasting Life is Conditional on obedience to partake the symbolic flesh and blood of Jesus. Accordingly Jesus said to them: “Most truly I say to YOU, Unless YOU eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink his blood, YOU have no life in yourselves. He that feeds on my flesh and drinks my blood has everlasting life, and I shall resurrect him at the last day; for my flesh is true food, and my blood is true drink. He that feeds on my flesh and drinks my blood remains in union with me, and I in union with him. Just as the living Father sent me forth and I live because of the Father, he also that feeds on me, even that one will live because of me. This is the bread that came down from heaven. It is not as when YOUR forefathers ate and yet died. He that feeds on this bread will live forever.”(John 6: 53-58, NWT)
Any person or religion that reject Jesus instructions as stated above can not be pleasing to him and you can not blame your religion for misleading you because God will hold you personally responsible for disobedience. You have an obligation to verify and corroborate any teaching that contradict the clear instruction from Jesus, who is the perfectas of your faith.(Hebrew 12:2) (I John 4:1, Deuteronomy 18:20-22)
Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
Our God is a God of freedom. Satan and his cohorts are control freak and they are fearful of the Bible Truth. (2 Corinthians 3:17) (Roman 8:14-15)
And just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so the Son of man must be lifted up, 15 that everyone believing in him may have everlasting life.
(John 3:14, Number 21:4-9, NWT. For this very reason also God exalted him to a superior position and kindly gave him the name that is above every [other] name, 10 so that in the name of Jesus every knee should bend of those in heaven and those on earth and those under the ground, 11 and every tongue should openly acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father(Philippians 2:9-11, Hebrew 1:6 NWT).
For example, if you have a corporation with many employees and at your old age you transfer all executive power to your son to hire and fire and to pay salaries and wages. But some of the employees come to you years later and demand for their monthly salaries, because they fail to recognize your son as the new Chief Executive Officer, would you pay them their salaries? NO! You would not because you have transfer all authority to your son.
Similarly, anyone who fail to have faith, and pray to Jesus and worship him in obedience Jehovah’s command in Hebrew 1:6 and Philipian 2: 9-11. will not gain everlasting life.
Then came to him the mother of Zebedee’s children with her sons,
XXx worshipping him, xxx and desiring a certain thing of him. And he said unto her, What wilt thou?
She saith unto him, Grant that these my two sons may sit, the one on thy right hand, and the other on the left, in thy kingdom. But Jesus answered and said, Ye know not what ye ask. Are ye able to drink of the cup that I shall drink of, and to be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with? They say unto him, We are able.
And he saith unto them, Ye shall drink indeed of my cup, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with:
xxxxx.

Jesus has the authority to give everlasting life. You have given Him authority over all flesh, that He should give eternal life to as many as You have given Him. (‭John‬ ‭17‬:‭2‬ NKJV)
In John 1:3-4” All thing were made by him. In Hime was life and the life was the light of men”
In Summary of why you should come to Jesus should for salvation.

Jesus is the Creator of “all” things – John 1:3; Colossians 1:16.
Jesus is the “Mighty God” – compare Isaiah 9:6 with Isaiah 10:20.
Jesus is “My Lord and My God” – John 20:28.
Xxxx Jesus raised Himself from the dead –
In John 2:19-21, Jesus said, destroy this temple and in three days I will raise it up; That is means if you kill me today and I will raise from the dead. 10:17-18.
Jesus is the One we are to follow – John 10:27.

Jesus is to be honored the same as the Father – John 5:23.
Jesus is worshipped by humans – Matthew 2:11; 8:2; 9:18; 14:33; 15:25; 18:26; 28:9, 17.

Therefore, you must come to Jesus for Salvation.
How you may asked?
Praise and worship Jesus as it done by early Christians and the Angels. Hebrew 1:6
Obey his command to eat and drink his blood at memorial or Holy Communion
(John 6: 50-58)
Be baptized with Holy Spirit and be Born Again (John 3:3,6)
Pray to Jesus like Stephen and Apostle Paul (Act 7:55-59, 2 Corinthian 12: 7- 9)
Receive the Power From Holy Spirit to Preach the good-news, to cast out demons and to heal the sick in the Name of Jesus.( Luke 10;19; 11:11-15, Mark 16:15,17-19)
Purge yourself of Judgmental doctrines and Love your neighbors your self.
Many organization disciples will think that I am crazy just as the Jewish leaders presume Jesus to be crazy in John 10:19-21.
The Bible is consistent from Genesis to Revelation that Jesus is the creator and life giver, a mediator, an agent of life, the true light, the power and wisdom of The Father.
The Word of God, the exact reflection of his father. Honoring Jesus means honoring his father. Not the other way round.
Therefore there was a division again among the Jews because of these sayings. And many of them said, “He has a demon and is mad. Why do you listen to Him?” Others said, “These are not the words of one who has a demon. Can a demon open the eyes of the blind?” (‭John‬ ‭10‬:‭19-21‬ NKJV)
All believers must come to Jesus for Salvation and become Jesus Witnesses. Then Jesus will grant you power to become God’s Children, and a Joint heir in his Kingdom.
(John 1:12, I John 5:1 and Roman 8:14)
You must recognize that your salvation is a gift from Jesus based on your faith not based on work prescribed by an organization. Apostle Paul says, By this undeserved kindness, indeed, YOU have been saved through faith; and this not owing to YOU, it is God’s gift. No, it is not owing to works, in order that no man should have ground for boasting.(Ephesians 2:8-9, Isaiah 64: 6 NWT)
You must avoid uninspired Mind Control Publication origination from inspired errors that is at variance with the Bible. Bible is the only recommended Book for salvation. Uninspired publication can only mislead you because it will misdirect your faith to man’s religious institutions instead of putting your faith in Jesus and his father.
( 2 Timothy 3:15-17, 1 John 4:1,6)
Do you feel unworthy of everlasting life? Do you feel Condemned YOU ARE NOT CONDEMNED because of your past.
There is still hope for you regardless of your past. Jesus still loves you.

Jesus knows the best in you.

Roman 8:1-2 The Bible says, “there is no condemnation for those who belong to Jesus Christ. And because you belong to Jesus, the power of life-giving Spirit has freed you from the power of sin that leads to death”.

If you want to begin a personal relationship with Jesus who will liberated you from the bondage of false religion and every oppression of the devil,
Please say this prayers:
My Lord Jesus, I invite you into my life. I believe that your blood pays for my sins and you have given me the grace of everlasting life. By faith I receive YOU as my Lord and Savior. Amen.
By Saying Amen, you’re now a born again Christian. And if you don’t have a notable testimony with 90 days after following Jesus closely don’t follow my message again. But if you have a testimony please share this with us as directed by Jesus in Luke 5:13-15.
Thank you and God bless you for watching. Go in Peace and come back with Testimonies.

The Divinity of Jesus

What is Divinity?

Divinity means. Divine character or nature, of the Supreme Being. With this definition, This means Jesus is God because he has a divine nature and divine character of God.

Why Is it Important to know Jesus and Honor Him As Honor is father?

It is a matter of life and dead to honor Jesus as we honor his father because is the life-giver.

That was why he says, in John 5:23-24
“that all should honor the Son just as they honor the Father. He who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent Him. “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life.” John‬ ‭5:23-24‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Jesus is fully the son of man because he was born as a man. Again Jesus is fully God because he has divine nature of God. How?

The question is, how does Jesus Disciples know him?
Do they know him as A Man or Do the Know Him As Michael Angels? Or Do they know him as God?
Who is Jesus?

In John 20:28 Thomas of the Jesus disciples addressed him as my LORD and my GOD.

Stephen
“And they stoned Stephen as he was calling on God and saying, “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.”(Acts‬ ‭7:59‬ ‭NKJV‬‬)

Stephen a man full of Holy Spirit Prayed To Jesus to receive his spirit.

Apostles Paul

In 11 Corinthians 12:7-8. Paul Prayed 3 Times to Jesus to heal him of a thorn in the flesh.

Apostles Paul recognized the position of Jesus as God that can answer prayers.

Apostles John also acknowledges Jesus as the true God and eternal life in I John 5:20b
John 5:20b
“And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us an understanding, that we may know Him who is true;
and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ.
This is the true God and eternal life.”
‭‭I John‬ ‭5:20‬ ‭NKJV

From the aforementioned examples, the early Apostles know Jesus to be the true God.

Did God the Father recognized Jesus as God?

Yes.

In Hebrew 1:6, 8. God the father addressed him as God and commanded the Angels in Heavens to Worship Him

God the father addressed Jesus as God,
“When He says: “Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; A scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdom.”Hebrews‬ ‭1:8‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Is Jesus the Michael, the Arch Angel? The answer is No

Jesus is greater than Angel and more than an ArchAngel or Michael Angels. According to Daniel 10:13

“But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me twenty-one days; and behold,
Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I had been left alone there with the kings of Persia.”(Daniel‬ ‭10:13‬ ).

This Michael is one of the Chief Princes that was called the archangel in Jude 1:9

“Yet Michael the archangel, in contending with the devil, when he disputed about the body of Moses, dared not bring against him a reviling accusation, but said, “The Lord rebuke you!”(Jude‬ ‭1:9‬ ‭NKJV‬‬)

and also in Revelation 12:7 Michael and his Angel fought against the dragon in Heaven and won the battle.

Jesus is superior in position to this archangel The fought in Heaven.
For example, chief cook is still a cook. Therefore archangel the Michael is still an Angel. Jesus Christ position is God and higher than Angels.
Because God commanded the Angels to worship Him Hebrew 1:6
If Jesus is the archangel, God would not command him to worship himself.

The Watchtower Society need to correct their teaching about Jesus the archangel. The chief of Army staff in any country is not the King or the president of the country similarly Michael the archangel is not the king of God’s Kingdom. Jesus is the King of Kings.
The Archangel Michael is Heavenly Warrior commander or the Chief Of Army staffs under Jesus, the King of Kings.

The Bible will help us to know who Jesus is.
Jesus
He is the reflection of [his] glory and the exact representation of his very being, and he sustains all things by the word of his power; and after he had made a purification for our sins he sat down on the right hand of the Majesty in lofty places. 4

4: So he has become better than the angels, to the extent that he has inherited a name more excellent than theirs”- Angels (Hebrew 1:1-4,6,8 )

6: But when He again brings the firstborn into the world, He says: “Let all the angels of God worship Him.””
‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭1:6‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

7: And of the angels He says: “Who makes His angels spirits And His ministers a flame of fire.”
8: But to the Son He says: “Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; A scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdom.” Hebrews‬ ‭1:7-8‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Jesus was a shadow or a reflection of God. For example, if God made man in his image, Jesus his own son will be exact replica of his father.

Just like a son is a copycat of his father.
For example, my son bears my name and look like me. Am a man and is a man.
Similarly Jesus is God and his Father is God and they bears the same name.
They both can kill and made alive.
Jesus carry his father nature or DNA and bears his father’s name.

Jesus and His Father is One God.

He corrected Philip by saying

“If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him.

Jesus said to Philip, “Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Philip?

He who has seen Me has seen the Father; so how can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?

Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority; but the Father who dwells in Me does the works. (‭John‬ ‭14‬:‭7, 9-10‬ NKJV)

Philip was one of the followers of Jesus yet he did not understand the divine nature of Jesus. Jesus has to tell him directly that if you have seen me, you have seen my father because my father lives in me and I LIVES IN MY FATHER.

In Genesis 1:1, 26. The Bible said, “In [the] beginning God created the heavens and the earth”. And in verse 26, God said, LET US make man in our image.
Who was God talking to when he said, LET US make man in our image?
Certainly God was not talking to himself but to his Son and the Holy Spirit.

By means of him all [other] things were created in the heavens and upon the earth, the things visible and the things invisible, no matter whether they are thrones or lordships or governments or authorities. All [other] things have been created through him and for him. 17 Also, he is before all [other] things and by means of him all [other] things were made to exist, 18 and he is the head of the body, the congregation. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that he might become the one who is first in all things. (Colossians 1:15-17)

For example, a good house will have a designer called an architect and a brIcklayer or carpenter both the architect and bricklayer are called “The Builder”.

The Architect plan the house and the bricklayer did the actual building.

In this illustrations God the father design the man in his image and Jesus carried out the actual creating and giving life to any creatures.

Jesus is our direct creator while God the father was the creator like an Architect.

That was why Jesus repeatedly said, I am the Life. I will give you everlasting life.

I am the life and resurrection. I will resurrect you in the last day.

Anyone who love life should honor and worship as God Directed in Hebrew 1:6

How do we know that Jesus is God and besides him there is no God?

Prophet Isaiah answered this question, In Isaiah 44;6

““Thus says the LORD, the King of Israel, And his Redeemer, the LORD of hosts: ‘I am the First and I am the Last; Besides Me there is no God.(Isaiah‬ ‭44:6‬ ‭and Revelation 1:7 NKJV‬‬)

Jesus echo this same statement in Revelation 1:18

“Do not be afraid; I am the First and the Last. I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore. Amen. And I have the keys of Hades and of Death.”(Revelation‬ ‭1:17-18‬ ‭NKJV‬‬)

“I, even I, am the Lord; and beside me there is no saviour. (Isaiah 43:11 KJV)

“For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.”(Luke‬ ‭2:11‬ )

Colossians 1:15-17

Jesus raise the dead like his father
1 Samuel 2:6
John 5: 25-29
John 11:25

Jesus forgive sins like the his father
Psalm 5:4
Mark 2:5-12

Jesus is our judge like the Jehovah
Joel 3:2
Ps , 9:7-8
Matthew 25:31-32

Only Jesus and his father is “The Truth”

John 14:6

Only Jesus shares glory with his father.

Isaiah 42:8
“I am the LORD, that is My name; And My glory I will not give to another, Nor My praise to carved images.”
‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭42:8‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

John 5: 23-24
“that all should honor the Son just as they honor the Father.
He who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent Him. “Most assuredly, I say to you,

he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life.”(John‬ ‭5:23-24‬ )

John 20:28
John 17: 5
Mark 2:28
John 8: 39
Matthew 22:22:25

From what the Bible says, why should we believe that Jesus is God?

Jesus said, “in order that all may honor the Son just as they honor the Father. He that does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent him. Most truly I say to YOU, He that hears my word and believes him that sent me has everlasting life, and he does not come into judgment but has passed over from death to life.(John 5:23-24).

Anyone who fails to honor the son did not honor the father. For example, if anyone or country mistreat or disrespect the Secretary of States of America , that will be considered a disrespect to the President of American.

Conversely, the honor granted the Secretary of States is an honor for the President that send him. Similarly, the only way to honor God is to obey his command to honor Jesus, his son. In fact, Jehovah rejoices in heaven when we praise and honor his son.

Jesus re emphasizes the importance of honoring him when
he said, “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who receives whomever I send receives Me; and he who receives Me receives Him who sent Me.” (‭John‬ ‭13‬:‭20‬ NKJV)

Who created the heavens and Earth, For whom were all things created? Based on Colossians 1:16-17?

What Will Happens to those refused to Honor Jesus?

“Therefore I said to YOU, YOU will die in YOUR sins. For if YOU do not believe that I am [he], YOU will die in YOUR sins.” (John 8:24. And Deuteronomy 32:39)

Who is the I am HE?
Who is the I am HE? In Deuteronomy 32:39

Deuteronomy. 32:39

SEE now that I—I am he
And there are no gods together with me.
I put to death, and I make alive.
I have severely wounded, and I—I will heal,
And there is no one snatching out of my hand.

Mark 13:5 So Jesus started to say to them: “Look out that nobody misleads YOU. 6 Many will come on the basis of my name, saying, ‘I am he,’ and will mislead many.

The word SAVIOR apply to Jesus in the Book of Isaiah and Luke 2:11. All the prophets in the Bible were prophesying about Jesus birth and his mission to save mankind

When Jesus Open his mouth, Enemies fell Down.

They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith unto them, I am he. And Judas also, which betrayed him, stood with them. As soon then as he had said unto them, I am he, they went backward, and fell to the ground. Then he asked them again, Whom seek ye? And they said, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus answered, I have told you that I am he: if therefore ye seek me, let these go their way: (John 18:5-8 KJV)

One will be wondering why would the army of people with weapons fall down when Jesus open his mouth saying, I am HE. They went backward and fell to the ground.
Why?

The Trier of Jesus

No man or army can arrest Jesus if Jesus open his mouth because Jesus is God. When Jesus closed his mouth, or he remain mute, the enemies were able to arrest him and kill him so that the prophesy might be fulfilled. Ps 38:13-14

But I, like a deaf man, do not hear; And I am like a mute who does not open his mouth. Thus I am like a man who does not hear, And in whose mouth is no response. (‭Psalms‬ ‭38‬:‭13-14‬ NKJV)

Since the scriptures can not be broken and God can not lie, it is necessary for Jesus to remain quiet so that he can fulfill his mission on earth to safe sinners from their sins. If Jesus were to defend himself and call legions of Angels in Heaven to exterminate his false accusers we would not have the grace of everlasting life.

Jesus said to him, “ It is as you said. Nevertheless, I say to you, hereafter you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Power, and coming on the clouds of heaven.” (‭Matthew‬ ‭26‬:‭64‬ NKJV)

Now Jesus stood before the governor. And the governor asked Him, saying, “Are You the King of the Jews?” Jesus said to him, “ It is as you say.

Then Pilate said to Him, “Do You not hear how many things they testify against You?” But He answered him not one word, so that the governor marveled greatly. (‭Matthew‬ ‭27‬:‭11, 13-14‬ NKJV)

Is Jesus as one True God?
Exodus 3:13-15

And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them? And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.

And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, The Lord God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations. (Exodus 3:13-15 KJV)

And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I AM. (John 8:9, 58 KJV)

Who is the I AM?

What Name did God says will be endured for ever?

Did God call himself Jehovah?

Act 4:12

Furthermore, there is no salvation in anyone else, for there is not another name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must get saved.” Which name is above every other name that people can use to get salvation?

Zaharias 12:10
And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn. (Zechariah 12:10 KJV)

Jesus is Life and the Resurrection

No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day. (‭John‬ ‭6‬:‭44‬ NKJV)
He who loves his life will lose it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life. If anyone serves Me, let him follow Me; and where I am, there My servant will be also. If anyone serves Me, him My Father will honor.

And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all peoples to Myself.”

Then Jesus cried out and said, “He who believes in Me, believes not in Me but in Him who sent Me. And he who sees Me sees Him who sent Me.

And if anyone hears My words and does not believe, I do not judge him; for I did not come to judge the world but to save the world. (‭John‬ ‭12‬:‭25-26, 32, 44-45, 47‬ NKJV
John 19:37
And again another scripture saith, They shall look on him whom they pierced. (John 19:37 KJV)
Revelation 1:7
Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty. (Revelation 1:7, 8 KJV)

Newspaper Article
“…Jesus’ friends and enemies were staggered again and again by what he said and did. He would be walking down the road, seemingly like any other man, then turn and say something like, ‘Before Abraham was, I am.’ Or, ‘If you have seen me, you have seen the Father.’ Or, very calmly, after being accused of blasphemy, he would say, ‘The Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins.’ To the dead he might simply say, ‘Come forth,’ or, ‘Rise up.’ And they would obey. To the storms on the sea he would say, ‘Be still.’ And to a loaf of bread he would say, ‘Become a thousand meals.’ And it was done immediately.”
“We saw it with our own eyes: Jesus resplendent with light from God the Father….We couldn’t be more sure of what we saw and heard—God’s glory, God’s voice.” (2 Peter 1: 16, 17 The Message )
John 5:23-24
23 in order that all may honor the Son just as they honor the Father. He that does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent him. 24 Most truly I say to YOU, He that hears my word and believes him that sent me has everlasting life, and he does not come into judgment but has passed over from death to life.
“I am the resurrection and the life”.
Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?” (‭John‬ ‭11‬:‭25-26‬ NKJV)

In summary:

The fact is, Jesus carries divine nature of God. Is like identical twins. It is difficult to know the difference between God And Jesus. He bears the qualities and the name of God. The Bible call him God and his disciples recognize him as God. He himself said, if you see me, you have seen my father. Me and my father are one.
For example, if our creator is Jesus and everything in Heaven and on earth is created by him and for Him. If He will give us everlasting life and His father commands us to worship him, who is me and you, not worship and honour him?
Prophets Isaiah call him The might God, and our savior, Apostles Paul and Stephen prayed to him three times and his disciples worship him . The overwhelming biblical references show that Jesus is Mighty God While his father is almighty God. Our father in the Heavens bear witness to Jesus in Matthew 4:4 and command you and me to listen to Jesus and to honor him.

Jul 272018
 

On July 2, 2018, I was in a dream of the night, when Jesus told me to open my Bible, which was under my pillow to the book of Mark 13:13. I woke up and immediately open my Bible to Mark 13:13 as instructed.
It reads, “And you shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that shall ENDURE to the end shall be saved”.
As I was pondering over the meaning of this Scripture and what shall I do with this information, I sense that my Lord wants me to share this information to all the people who care to know. In the above verses the word Endurance stood out as a condition for salvation. The word endurance is one the fruits of God’s Holy Spirit. The word endurance means to suffer-for a long time.
I said to my Lord, this is not a good news message. Endure suffering for a long time is not one of the regular prayer points. At this time of the end, no Christian prays to suffer at all, talk less of suffering for a long time. All our prayers points are to move us from glory to glory. Endurance is not needed when one is living a prosperous life. Endurance is not needed when one is enjoying good quality of life. Endurance is not needed when one is living in abundance.
Why should a Christian be ready to suffer for a long time or need endurance in other to be saved? Jesus answered this question: You shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake. That a slave is not greater than his master, if the world hates Jesus, then Christ followers should expect the same maltreatment and hatred from the world. Christians need endurance at this time of the end more than any other time in history.
Christians the world over are been persecuted and are been beheaded by Islamic terrorist group in many countries. In Afghanistan and in Arabian countries and particularly in Nigeria. For example, the Boko-Haram terrorist group started by bombing Churches and killing Christians in their effort to Islamized the Northern Nigeria. In 2015 and in 2017 they kidnapped 300 Chibok school girls and another 115 Dapchi school girls. After a long period of negotiation by the government officials they released 114 girls but refused to release Lear, a Christian. This young girl upholds her faith in Jesus and for this reason she is still in bondage. People like Lear, the Chibok girls and their parents and those who have been rendered widows and orphans need endurance to be saved. What about you? What about me?
Jesus further said, there will be great affliction, such as was not from the beginning of creation unto this time, neither shall it be. The rise of false prophets and false Christs will abound. They will show signs and wonders and mislead many with their false teachings. “Heaven and Earth shall pass away but my word shall not pass away”, Jesus said. You can see why endurance is needed to be saved.
What should Christians do? Jesus again answered this question: Watch and Pray. What does it means to watch? Is it to form a Vigilante Group in every villages, hamlets, towns and Cities? Is it to ban Muslim from entering our Countries? The answer is no. The improved security and vigilante group will not stop the hatred and the killing of Christians. Christian must watch for signs and physical manifestation of Jesus words and the signs of his second coming. They must come to pass. Prophesies about the persecution and the killing of Christians must come to pass in other to know genuine Christians from fake Christians.
For example, four armed men entered into a mega Church and fire into the ceiling. They shouted, “if you are ready to die for Jesus move to the right. If you want to deny Jesus and live, you can go. Ninety five percent of the church members denied Jesus and left the church. Then the armed men removed their face-mask and said to the people on the right, we are not here to kill you but want to know who are genuine Christians; now let the service continue“, they said.
From the above experience, we can see that God is looking for those who will pass the test of faith and endure to the end to inherit God’s Kingdom. The persecution and the killing of Christians allow Jesus to identify those who truly love him and those who deserve to be in God’s Kingdom. That was why Jesus advice true Christians to “enter through the narrow gate: for wide and broad is the way that leads to destruction and many are the people going through the broad road, (Mathew 7:13) Feel good religions can only put unsuspecting Christians into a spiritual coma or spiritual drowsiness forgetting about Jesus prophesies about the signs of the last days and of this wicked generation. Unfortunately, many people are forsaking the salvation doctrines to the feel good doctrines.
One may asked, why would a loving God allow the persecution of his servants? Another illustration that comes to mind to answer this question is precious metals like Gold or Diamond. It must pass through the fire and be purified before they can be useful. Similarly true Christian must pass through the test of our faith like fire, like flood and pass through other form of purification before one can qualify to rule with Jesus. It calls for wisdom, then, to be spiritually awake to watch for the signs of Jesus second coming as foretold in Mark 13 and Mathew 24.
The second advice of Jesus was to pray. What shall Christians be praying for? Shall we pray for fire to come down from Heavens to consume our persecutors and killers? Or should we pray for endurance to be able to pass the test of our love and faith in Jesus? Or should we be praying that our flight should not be during the winter? Jesus said, when they persecute you in one city flee to another city and before you flee to all the city, the son of man will come(Mathew 10:23).

Remember the word of our Lord when he said, “A servant is not greater than his master; If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you… ” (John 15:20). All true Christians should be prepared to endure persecution, and all kinds of evil against you for Christ’s name sake. In all these endurance is required to maintain our love and faith for the king of kings, Jesus Christ. He who loves his life will lose it, and he that loses his life for my sake will find it, Jesus assured Christians.
Therefore we should pray without ceasing for the spirit of endurance. We should pray for the fruits of endurance. We should pray for more faith and unconditional love for our God. Even if our lives are lost, it will be temporary because Jesus promised the resurrection of the faithful to reward them with everlasting life.

One of the outstanding servants of God who endured severe persecution was Apostle Paul, he wrote about the assurance of the resurrection hope,
“For we know that if our earthly [a]house, this tent, is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed with our [b]habitation which is from heaven, if indeed, having been clothed, we shall not be found naked. For we who are in this tent groan, being burdened, not because we want to be unclothed, but further clothed, that mortality may be swallowed up by life. Now He who has prepared us for this very thing is God, who also has given us the Spirit as [c]a guarantee. So we are always confident, knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord. for we walk by faith, not by sight. We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord (2 Corinthians 5:1-8).
All Christian should have the same mental attitude like Apostle Paul in the above example. We should count it a privilege to give up our lives for Jesus Christ who paid a supreme sacrifice to purchase us from the bondage of sin and death. “If anyone wants to be my disciple, let him carry his torture stake (cross) and follow me. He that endures to the end shall be saved, Jesus says” (Mark 13:13 and Mathew 24:13). If the men and women who serve their nation in the military are willing to lay down their lives in defense of the nations, all Christians should be able to endure all form of persecution to the end of our mortal life. Christian should not be afraid of those that can kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Remember, those who endure to the end shall be saved.
If it is in your hearts to endure to the point of death for Christ’s sake, my Heavenly father, Jehovah God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit will give you the spirit and the fruitage of Endurance to serve God to eternity. Aaamen.

There is no doubt that we are living at the time of the end of this wicked generation. Presently everything God gave us for free is been commercialized. For example, people are been made to pay for their salvation with money and with work.
You may be hearing some men of God are telling their congregants the following statements: You need to pay your tithes before you can make heaven. Your tithes and offering is your passport to heaven. You are not entitled to God blessing if you fail to pay your tithes. Or the more you give your time and money to God, the more God will bless you in return. If that is true, it means that it is only those who can pay their tithes and offering will qualify for heavenly hope. What does Bible truth say about everlasting life in heaven or on earth?
Apostle Paul letter to the Galatians Congregation show that a man is not justified by works of the law, but by the faith in Jesus Christ, for by the works of the law shall no man be justified. These statements reflect the fact that the believers are no longer under the yoke of Mosaic laws to compulsorily paying tithe and making sacrifices. Otherwise, Jesus sacrificial dead will amount to nothing if we have to pay and work for eternal life. God forbid (Galatians 2:16)
Everlasting life is a free gift. For example, if I give you a gift and at the same time I demanded some monetary condition to receiving that gift, would you consider it a gift? The answer is no. Gift has no condition attached to it. Similarly, Jesus sacrificial death paid for our sins and dead, making everlasting life in heavens and on earth a free gift. Faith in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ is the only requirement for anyone to have eternal life. Because we are living in the grace dispensation, from the Man creation in the Garden in Eden to the time of Joseph, there were no organized religion but people had direct relationship with God. However, during the second dispensation God selected the Abraham descendants, the Jews as a people for special possession. Moses organized the first religion with Ten Commandments. However, these laws reveal that no man is capable of obeying the laws to the letters. Failure is one law nullified all others laws. No wonder no one can be justified by keeping the laws. Prophet Isaiah put it in clear term when he said, ” We are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousness, are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away”(Isaiah 64:6) Jesus came to our rescue in the third dispensation with grace of everlasting life when he paid with his perfect human life.
The grace dispensation that Jesus mediated grantees everyone who has faith in the ransom sacrifice of Jesus to be safe. To avoid any doubt Paul wrote to the churches: that in the ages to come, He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.(Ephesians 2:7-9)
Even though everlasting life is a free gift we need to excise our faith in Jesus by obeying Jesus to give our time and resources to the poor voluntarily( Luke 6:38). The Bible says those who give to the poor are lending to God. However those who become rich at the expense of poor and those who give to the rich will come to be in want (Proverb 22:16)
Everlasting life was based on grace and undeserved kindness of God. It was not based on money or work so that no one could boast.

Jesus invited people from all races and tribes to come to him for salvation because there is no salvation in anyone else. His God’s given assignment is to create and to give life. Jesus said, “I am the door; whoever enters through me will be saved, and he will go in and out and find pasturage. And I give them everlasting life, and they will by no means ever be destroyed, and no one will snatch them out of my hand.
(John 10:7-9,28, NWT)

However, some Modern Day religious leaders write and invite people to come to their religion Organization for salvation and they even Baptized new convert in the name of the Spirit Directed Organization.

“The Watchtower Society says, “Come to Jehovah’s organization for salvation” – Watchtower 1981 Nov 15 p.212

These teachers are diverting the attention of the sheep to a man made printing corporations and from Jesus Christ. Their invitation is in direct conflicts with Jesus position and Office as the Chief Agent of Life. Their false and misleading teachings put heavy load on their followers with countless rules and regulations. Their religion organization can not lead anyone to salvation but to destruction. For example, frequent use of Jesus name in praise and worship is unwittingly forbidden. The Worship of Jesus and praying to Jesus is considered idolatry. One cult members told me that She would rather seek healing from traditional healers than for anyone to say In the Name of Jesus be healed. That was to the extent she had been brainwashed to hate Jesus. The organization is raising a group of anti-Christ.

The Watchtower Society discouraged their members from eating and drinking Jesus symbolic body and blood. Claiming that you have to be among the 144,000 heavenly hopeful before you can qualify to partake of the emblems. What a pity!
Jesus did not mention Heaven or Earth but obedience but everlasting life.

Another faulty reason was that you must be holy before you eat and drink Jesus symbolic body and blood. They have forgotten that Apostle Peter denied knowing Jesus after he had partook in the eating and drinking the blood of Jesus. This show perfection is not required. Jesus required obedience from all believers to partake in other to gain everlasting life.

One brother told me that only the foundation members are required to partake and that not all his seventy followers are qualify to partake. That was a faulty reasoning. Jesus required all his followers to partake but only the eleven disciples partook the Holy Communion because others deserted Him at hearing Him says, “unless you eat my flesh and drink my blood, you have no life”(John 6: 60-68)

To gain the full benefits of been a Christian, OBEDIENCE in the following areas is very important: Faith in the ransom sacrifice of Jesus, Baptism with Water and Baptism with Holy Spirit, Partaking in the symbolic flesh and blood of Jesus Christ. (John 3:3,5, John 6: 48-57).

Jesus invited people out of compassion for their welfare and salvation when he said,”Come to me, all YOU who are toiling and loaded down, and I will refresh YOU. Take my yoke upon YOU and learn from me, for I am mild-tempered and lowly in heart, and YOU will find refreshment for YOUR souls. For my yoke is kindly and my load is light.”(Matthew 11:28-30)

No religion on Earth can boast of giving anyone salvation because there is no salvation in anyone else, for there is not another name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must get saved.”(Acts 4:12) That was why Apostle Peter boldly told the Jewish religious leaders after healing a paralyzed man. “Let it be known to all of you and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead—by this name this man stands here before you in good health. … And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved.” —Acts 4:10, 12, New American Standard Bible. There is no other savior than Jesus. There is no savior in Hindus, Buddism, Mohammedaism there is no savior in any religion than Jesus. Only Jesus Christ is still alive and he promised to give you life eternal.

When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” (John 8:12, 32 NIV)
Following a religion organization leads to darkness and falsehood because they disobey Jesus conditional instructions to eat his flesh and drink his blood as a condition for everlasting life. They reject the worship and praising of Jesus.

Jesus said again: “Most truly I say to YOU, I am the door of the sheep. All those that have come in place of me (false Teachers)are thieves and plunderers; but the sheep have not listened to them. I am the door; whoever enters through me will be saved, and he will go in and out and find pasturage. And I give them everlasting life, and they will by no means ever be destroyed, and no one will snatch them out of my hand. (John 10:7-9,28, NWT)

Thomas was a man of physical faith who believe what he sees. He wants Jesus to show him the way to salvation. Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (John 14:6 KJV.

The implication of Jesus declaration that “I am the Way” that is there is no other way to salvation beside Jesus because his duty is to grant salvation to all believers. This declaration is consistent with all the prophets. (Isaiah 43:11 and Luke 2:11)

Again Jesus Declared “I am the Truth” this means that there is no other Truth beside Jesus. In his last prayers he beg his father to sanctify his believers by means of the truth because your WORD, Jesus is the Truth. Any religious organizations who nicknamed herself as the Truth is stealing the title that belong to Jesus. This amounted to impersonation of Jesus and his father. (John 10:7-9)

Jesus Declared, “I am LIFE”. This means Jesus is the source of life because he created everything both in Heaven and on Earth. Things visible and thing invisible. His duty is to create Life and to give you life. He is the agent of life. (Colossians 1:15-16)
This is consistent with all Scriptures. For example, John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him (Jesus) should not perish but have everlasting life”. (‭John‬ ‭3‬:‭16‬, 1 John 5: 9-12 NKJV).

Therefore, anyone who fails to recognize Jesus as the only Way, as the Only Truth and as the only Life , does so at their own perils. It is just like a very hard working fellow who work hard in a corporation but failed to clock in before he start to work. At the end of the week, he will not get paid despite his activities. Similarly any person who fail to recognize Jesus position as the Life Giver and Mighty God will find themselves to blame. No wonder Jesus will declare them workers of lawlessness because they lack practical faith in Jesus. (Mathew 7:21-23)

Another fitting illustration is, if you’re a rich father who appointed your son as the Chief Executive officer and the President of your corporations. You gave him the power to hire and fire workers and to pay their wages and salaries. But certain few old workers refuse to recognize your son position and bypass him and comes to you for their salaries, if you’re the father, would you pay the salaries of those insubordinate workers? The answer is NO. Similarly regardless of how many hours of preaching activities one does without recognizing Jesus Position as a Life Giver who deserves our worship and honor and glory, the person mighty be working in vain.

Jesus is the only mediator between God and humans. For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, a man, CHRIST JESUS (1 Timothy 2: 5,NWT
To him all the prophets bear witness, that everyone putting faith in him gets forgiveness of sins through his name.”(Acts 10:43, NWT). Despite all the evidences that Jesus is the only mediator between God and believers, some religious leaders are mis leading their followers that Jesus is not the mediator of everyone. But a mediator for few heavenly Hopeful.

Please read some examples of articles written by the Watchtower Society to elevate the Governing Body to a position of mediatorship.

However, the official doctrine of the Watchtower Society was that Jesus was mediator for the 144,000 alone. “So in this strict Biblical sense Jesus is the “mediator” only for anointed Christians.” Watchtower 1979 Apr 1 p.31

Rationalization on Mediatorship
Likewise, the Greater Moses, Jesus Christ, is not the Mediator between Jehovah God and all mankind. He is the Mediator between his heavenly Father, Jehovah God, and the nation of spiritual Israel, which is limited to only 144,000 members.”
Worldwide Security Under the “Prince of Peace” (1986) pp.10-11

They recognize that they are not spiritual Israelites in the new covenant mediated by Jesus Christ, nor part of the “chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation.”-1 Pet. 2:9. Yet they do benefit from the operation of the new covenant. They benefit from this just as, in ancient Israel, the “alien resident” benefited from residing in among the Israelites who were in the Law covenant.-Ex. 20:10; Lev. 19:10, 33, 34; Rev. 7:9-15. To keep in relationship with “our Savior, God,” the “great crowd” needs to remain united with the remnant of spiritual Israelites.” Watchtower 1979 Nov 15 p.27

“The terms of the Law covenant allowed for persons of all national backgrounds to come into membership of the congregation of Israel by accepting the true worship of Jehovah and becoming circumcised. The alien resident who had become a circumcised worshiper was bound to one law with the Israelites, that is, to obey all the terms of the Law covenant.” Insight on the Scriptures, Volume 1 p.72 Alien Resident

The underlying Watchtower reason for Jesus mediating only for the Anointed is that the New Covenant is said to only apply to the 144,000.

This doctrine elevate and placed the Governing Body as a mediator between rank and file of Jehovah’s Witnesses and Jesus, while Jesus mediate between God and Governing Body.

The fact is non of these Governing Body Members can die for anyone like Jesus.

Apostle John made it clear that God bear witness to Jesus as the only source of life. He said, “And this is the witness given, that God gave us everlasting life, and this life is in his Son. He that has the Son has this life; he that does not have the Son of God does not have this life. I write YOU these things that YOU may know that YOU have life everlasting, YOU who put YOUR faith in the name of the SON of God. (John 5: 1, 2,11-13,NWT)

Again, Everlasting Life is Conditional on obedience to partake the symbolic flesh and blood of Jesus. Accordingly Jesus said to them: “Most truly I say to YOU, Unless YOU eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink his blood, YOU have no life in yourselves. He that feeds on my flesh and drinks my blood has everlasting life, and I shall resurrect him at the last day; for my flesh is true food, and my blood is true drink. He that feeds on my flesh and drinks my blood remains in union with me, and I in union with him. Just as the living Father sent me forth and I live because of the Father, he also that feeds on me, even that one will live because of me. This is the bread that came down from heaven. It is not as when YOUR forefathers ate and yet died. He that feeds on this bread will live forever.”(John 6: 53-58, NWT)

Any person or religion that reject Jesus instructions as stated above can not be pleasing to him and you can not blame your religion for misleading you because God will hold you personally responsible for disobedience. You have an obligation to verify and corroborate any teaching that contradict the clear instruction from Jesus, who is the perfectas of your faith.(Hebrew 12:2) (I John 4:1, Deuteronomy 18:20-22)

Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
Our God is a God of freedom. Satan and his cohorts are control freak and they are fearful of the Bible Truth. (2 Corinthians 3:17) (Roman 8:14-15)

And just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so the Son of man must be lifted up, 15 that everyone believing in him may have everlasting life.
(John 3:14, Number 21:4-9, NWT. For this very reason also God exalted him to a superior position and kindly gave him the name that is above every [other] name, 10 so that in the name of Jesus every knee should bend of those in heaven and those on earth and those under the ground, 11 and every tongue should openly acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father(Philippians 2:9-11, Hebrew 1:6 NWT).

For example, if you have a corporation with many employees and at your old age you transfer all executive power to your son to hire and fire and to pay salaries and wages. But some of the employees come to you years later and demand for their monthly salaries, because they fail to recognize your son as the new Chief Executive Officer, would you pay them their salaries? NO! You would not because you have transfer all authority to your son.

Similarly, anyone who fail to have faith, and pray to Jesus and worship him in obedience Jehovah’s command in Hebrew 1:6 and Philipian 2: 9-11. will not gain everlasting life.

Then came to him the mother of Zebedee’s children with her sons,
XXx worshipping him, xxx and desiring a certain thing of him. And he said unto her, What wilt thou?
She saith unto him, Grant that these my two sons may sit, the one on thy right hand, and the other on the left, in thy kingdom. But Jesus answered and said, Ye know not what ye ask. Are ye able to drink of the cup that I shall drink of, and to be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with? They say unto him, We are able.
And he saith unto them, Ye shall drink indeed of my cup, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with:
xxxxx.

Jesus has the authority to give everlasting life. You have given Him authority over all flesh, that He should give eternal life to as many as You have given Him. (‭John‬ ‭17‬:‭2‬ NKJV)

Be baptized with Holy Spirit and be Born Again (John 3:3,6)

Pray to Jesus like Stephen and Apostle Paul (Act 7:55-59, 2 Corinthian 12: 7- 9)

Receive the Power From Holy Spirit to Preach the good-news, to cast out demons and to heal the sick in the Name of Jesus.( Luke 10;19; 11:11-15, Mark 16:15,17-19)

Purge yourself of Judgmental doctrines and Love your neighbors your self.

Many organization disciples will think that I am crazy just as the Jewish leaders presume Jesus to be crazy in John 10:19-21.

The Bible is consistent from Genesis to Revelation that Jesus is the creator and life giver, a mediator, an agent of life, the true light, the power and wisdom of The Father.
The Word of God, the exact reflection of his father. Honoring Jesus means honoring his father. Not the other way round.

Therefore there was a division again among the Jews because of these sayings. And many of them said, “He has a demon and is mad. Why do you listen to Him?” Others said, “These are not the words of one who has a demon. Can a demon open the eyes of the blind?” (‭John‬ ‭10‬:‭19-21‬ NKJV)

All believers must come to Jesus for Salvation and become Jesus Witnesses. Then Jesus will grant you power to become God’s Children, and a Joint heir in his Kingdom.
(John 1:12, I John 5:1 and Roman 8:14)

You must recognize that your salvation is a gift from Jesus based on your faith not based on work prescribed by an organization. Apostle Paul says, By this undeserved kindness, indeed, YOU have been saved through faith; and this not owing to YOU, it is God’s gift. No, it is not owing to works, in order that no man should have ground for boasting.(Ephesians 2:8-9, Isaiah 64: 6 NWT)

You must avoid uninspired Mind Control Publication origination from inspired errors that is at variance with the Bible. Bible is the only recommended Book for salvation. Uninspired publication can only mislead you because it will misdirect your faith to man’s religious institutions instead of putting your faith in Jesus and his father.( 2 Timothy 3:15-17, 1 John 4:1,6)

Do you feel unworthy of everlasting life? Do you feel Condemned YOU ARE NOT CONDEMNED because of your past.
There is still hope for you regardless of your past. Jesus still loves you. Jesus knows the best in you.
Roman 8:1-2 The Bible says there is no condemnation for those who belong to Jesus Christ. And because you belong to Jesus, the power of life-giving Spirit has freed you from the power of sin that leads to death.
If you want to begin a personal relationship with Jesus who will liberated you from the bondage of false religion and every oppression of the devil, please say this prayers:
Lord Jesus I invite you into my life. I believe that your blood pays for my sins and you have given me the grace of everlasting life. By faith I receive as my Lord and Savior. Amen.
