Who are the True Family of Jesus (Video)

"As Jesus was speaking to the crowd, his mother and brothers stood outside, asking to speak to him. Someone told Jesus, "Your mother and brothers are outside, and they want to speak to you"

Jesus asked, "Who is my mother? Who are my brothers? Then he pointed to his disciples and said, "Look, these are my mother and brothers. Anyone who does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother!" Matthew 12:46-50 (NLT)

So you are a family of Jesus if you please God and do His wills, you are a brother to Jesus if you keep the commandments of God by adhering to the teachings of Jesus

How The Evil Spirit Operates

Evil is something that is very bad or harmful. An evil spirit is a bad spirit, harmful to the person it possesses.

When an evil spirit enters into the soul of a man, the man tends to behave in ways he normally wouldn’t have.

An evil spirit when it possesses the body of man can make the man commit adultery, fornication, lesbianism, murder and all sorts of bad things.

In the Book of Samuel in the Old Testament of the Bible, Saul was usually possessed by an evil spirit; at such times he becomes angry, fierce and moody and was willing to do anything evil.

What you think, you produce!

It is a common thing to hear people after committing a crime, say something like, “It’s the devil”, “and it’s the work of Satan”

They blame every evil they have committed on the scapegoat – the devil. Someone commits adultery and blames it on the devil, another kills and say it was Satan that caused it!

Hear what the bible has to say about this:

“A tree is identified by its fruit. If a tree is good, its fruits will be good. If a tree is bad, its fruit will be bad” Matthew 12: 33

What is Sin against the Holy Spirit?

You often hear people mimic others who speak in tongue or you see some people trying to demonstrate the Holy Spirit.

How do you know when you have sinned against the Holy Spirit? It is difficult to know, because some things are done against the Holy Spirit that you are not even aware of.

You need to be careful in your dealings with the Holy Spirit because the sin against the Holy Spirit is unforgivable.

King Solomon

Solomon was born in 1000BC in Jerusalem the capital of Israel to King David and Bathsheba. He was also known as Jedidiah.

He reigned between 970 and 931 BC. He is described as the third king of the united monarchy, and the final king before the northern kingdom of Israel and the Southern kingdom of Judah split.

Stories and time of King Solomon was recorded in the Books of Kings and Chronicles of the Bible.

According to the Book of Genesis, Esau was the fraternal twin brother of Jacob (whom God renamed Israel) - the patriarch and founder of the Israelites.

Esau and Jacob were the sons of Isaac and Rebekah, and grandsons of Abraham and Sarah.

The first one was very red at birth and covered with thick hair like a fur coat. So they named him Esau. Then the other twin was born with his hand grasping Esau’s heel. So they named him Jacob. (Gen 25: 25- 26)

Who is Melchizedek

Melchizedek was a High Priest and King. He was mentioned in Genesis and Hebrews in the Old and New Testaments of the Bible.

Though, there wasn’t much that was said about him, the little that was said about him shows that he was a great man of God.

Different schools of thoughts have varied views about his existence and what he was. While some think he never existed, others particularly the Christians believe he existed but had no parental background some said he was the one who came as Jesus Christ in the New Testament.

Stop False Doctrines!

Many times I have said again and again that people make mistake of thinking that because Jesus Christ came and died on the cross of Calvary then Christians are save and so a Christian girl can prostitute or a Christian man can embezzle money and it won’t be sin.

Very funny, isn’t it? I have had arguments with prostitutes who believe that the preaching and warnings of Prophet Hosea is for the people of that time.

So when they take up prostituting as a profession, it is okay as long as they go to church and pay their tithes.

What to do When You are Persecuted

“God blesses those who are persecuted for doing right, for the kingdom of Heaven is theirs” Matthew 5:9 (NLT)

Persecution is being treated cruelly or unfairly over a period of time especially because of your religious or political beliefs.

Another definition of persecution is to deliberately cause difficulties for someone by annoying them often.

My point therefore is; persecution is not only when you take a man and hang him on the cross for a sin he did not commit, persecution is also deliberately making someone go through a difficult situation or difficulties by making them get angry all the time.

Anyone Not Adding Value to Other People’s Life Is Worthless

“You are the salt of the earth. But what good is salt if it has lost its flavor? Can you make it salty again? It will be thrown out and trampled underfoot as worthless” Matthew 5:13 (NLT)

Salt is use for sweetening food. Longman defines it as a natural white mineral that is added to food to make it taste better or preserve it.

Therefore if the bible refers to you a Christian as salt of the earth, it connotes that you are created to make the earth a better place or to help preserve the earth.

Be Glad When People Mock You Because You Are Serving God (Matthew 5:11-12)

“God blesses you when people mock you and persecute you and lie about you and say all sorts of evil things against you because you are my followers. Be happy about it! Be very glad! For a great reward awaits you in heaven. And remember, the ancient prophets were persecuted in the same way” Matthew 5:11-12 (NLT)

Many people mock those serving God. I have severally heard people say things like, “This God you are serving isn’t it time He gives you money?” or things like, “E too sabi pray too much sef” in Pidgin English. It translates to, “He prays too much”

God Bless You If You are Poor and Serve Him

“God blesses those who are poor and realize their need for Him, for the kingdom of Heaven is theirs” Matthew 5:3 (NLT)

It is annoying when you are poor and you go to the same church with very rich people who don’t even serve God as much as you do and yet they have it all, they commit almost all of the sins in Bible and yet they are the best in the house of God.

Yes, it is true, it is annoying, but your reason for serving God in the first place is because He is your Maker, your Creator who made you the way you are, that you are not crippled. That you have eyes, ears, that gives you the body you are looking for that cloth to cover with, that made the clay and sand that are used for building that house that you wish to build. That made the iron and steel that is used for making that car you think you don’t have!

Jesus Christ is the True Shepherd

Longman Dictionary describes a shepherd as someone who leads or guide a group of people somewhere, making sure that they go where he wants them to go.

Therefore as Christians and children of God whose mission on earth is to make it to heaven our final abode, our shepherd or driver to that destination is therefore Jesus Christ.

In the Book of Matthew in chapter two verses six, it says, “And you, O Bethlehem in the land of Judah, are not least among the ruling cities of Judah, for a ruler will come from you who will be the shepherd for my people.” (NLT)

Not Everyone That Celebrates With You Have Good Intentions

People are easily carried away when they are celebrating success of job promotion, purchase of a new car, building of a new house or the birth of a new baby.

But beware! It is not everyone that comes to you to say congratulation when you celebrate or mark a success that truly wishes you well.

Some people are there to see what they can use to bring down that success you are celebrating.

In this part of Africa it is usual for people when they have a new baby not to allow the baby come in contact with people, relatives, friends until they baby had gotten to a certain age when they believe that his/her destiny is not stolen away from birth.

When you see the Light you will be Filled with Joy

Have you ever been desperate for anything before?

Have you been in dire need of something that you couldn’t get for a very long time, like a child, money, house or job and for long you try but it didn’t come?

But one day you go for a test and the doctor say, “Congratulation, you are pregnant” or you receive a phone call or get an e-mail informing you that you have been given a job appointment!

You can imagine how joyous you will be on that day.

It’s like being in a dark room and suddenly your younger brother brings in a lamp that brightens the room!

Repentance is the Only Way You Can Saved

I have come across some Christians who think it doesn’t matter whatever they do as long as they go to church and they are Christians.

I have particularly had an encounter with a girl who told me to stop preaching Prophet Hosea’s message to prostitutes that the New Testament has freed everyone from sin.

But I tell you the truth, except if you are truly repentant you do not have the promises of God.

In Matthew Chapter Three verses Seven to Nine, John while baptizing the newly converts saw some Pharisees and addressed them thus:

Anyone Can Be Tempted

Image Source:  Ortho Cuban

Dear friend, let me tell you this, no one is above temptation.

1 Corinthians 10:12-13 says, "If you think you are standing strong, be careful not to fall. The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure" (NLT)

Don’t say I have overcome this or I am above that; rather say by God’s grace I overcome temptations.

Eating the Word of God is better than Eating Food

“During that time the devil came and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become loaves of bread”

“But Jesus told him, “No! The Scriptures says, ‘People do not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God” Matthew 4:3 (NLT)

Imagine yourself being in the place of Jesus after fasting for forty days and forty nights and very hungry. You would have easily fallen for the suggestions of the devil to turn stones into bread to eat!

Jesus' Mission on Earth (Matthew 3:11)

Mission is the purpose or the most important aim of a person or an organization.

The mission of Jesus Christ on earth is summarized in Matthew 3:11-12 where John the Baptist was baptizing new converts.

John told the people, “I baptize with water those who repent of their sins and turn to God. But someone is coming (Jesus Christ) who is coming soon who is greater than I am- so much greater that I’m not worthy even to be his slave and carry his sandals. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire” Matthew 3: 11 (NLT)

Do Not Test God

I have seen some drivers over-speeding and when you caution them they are often quick to say, “It’s only God that saves those who drives slowly and those who over-speeds”

Very true, it’s God that saves everyone in all situations but do not test the Lord your God by doing things anyhow and expects Him to save you.

Everything Requires a Process

For a tree to bear fruits it must have first been planted as a small seed in the ground that germinates into a small tree that grows into a big tree and then starts bearing fruits.

A child is formed with the sperm of the father that fertilizes the egg of the mother forming the embryo that develops into a fetus that is later delivered as baby after nine months.

The baby starts by sucking the mother’s breasts, later takes milk, with time foods like pap, Golden Mourn and solid foods like rice etc. , he begins to crawl before he starts walking and then running.
Many people want to come into millions within the very first month or year they start their business. Some don’t even want to work but want to become millionaires through magic and fraudulent practices.

Are you a True Child of God?

Many Christians claim to be sons of God because they are born-again. Yes it is true that you are a child of God once you have confessed Jesus Christ as Lord.

But, is that all that is required of you, just confessing Jesus Christ as Lord and continue in your sin?

God is Doing Something New Today!

When you pray to God concerning a thing, particularly if you are praying with conviction and faith that what you are asking God for will be granted you, God answers your prayer that instant you asked.

The fact that what you prayed for a thing and you haven’t seen the manifestation yet does not mean that God has not answered your prayer what it means is that you should be calm and patient to see the manifestation.

If you look at the wind or the things happening around you at a particular time, the chances is that you will doubt and when you doubt like that, it’s like altering what you have prayed for. God is not a man that He should lie and there is nothing He says that will not come to pass. Rather than focus on the negative circumstances, be focused on the promises.

My Life in Your Hand (Kirk Franklin)

You don’t have to worry, and don’t have to be afraid

Joy comes in the morning,

Trouble they don’t last always

For there is a friend named Jesus, who will wipe your tears away

And if your heart is broken

Just lift your hands and say:

See What will happen to Corrupt People

This should be a relief for the people crying to God every day to bring corrupt leaders to book. The cry of the people for punishment of the wicked and corrupt leaders has been received by God and from now on those who have stolen away the wealth of this country will begin to meet their downfall in Jesus name.

God says this thieves, embezzlers, killers and cheats will not go unpunished. They have hitherto trusted in ill-gotten wealth to the extent that they value no one. Their pride has taken over their mind and no one means anything to them.

The Treacherous Neighbor

“What sorrow awaits you who make your neighbors drunk? You force your cup on them so you can gloat over their shameful nakedness” Habakkuk 2: 15

I know many people will not understand this verse. It is not necessarily making your neighbor drunk with alcohol or any strong wine. No, it is about the way you treat your neighbor by oppressing them, by setting them up, by plotting evil for them or plotting their downfall.

This bible verse is talking about jealous and wicked neighbors, aiming at disgracing and embarrassing another neighbor.

It is Foolish to Worship Idols

Idols are carved from woods, metals, clay, etc. by man or the user or the worshiper. How funny and foolish that is. Longman describes idol as a picture or statue that is worshiped as a god.

Worshiping something you created or carved with your own hands is not only foolish but also senseless. My thinking is that you should serve something or being that is stronger than you and not the other way. What you created is what should be serving you and not you worshiping or serving what you created.
