The Apex of Creation

The greatest gift God gave to mankind is not sight but vision. Sight is a function of the eyes but vision is the function of the mind and of the heart. What the eyes see is what already exists but vision gives you the possibilities of what could be.

Vision is the snapshot of your purpose.  Everything God created has a purpose. Nothing is created for experimentation or the fun of it.

The sun is beautiful but beauty is not the purpose of the creation of the sun. Without the sun there will be no human life. The Gamma and the Ultra Violet rays from the sun cause the chlorophyll in plants in the chemical reaction to convert sunlight to food energy in the process called photosynthesis, producing oxygen for human existence.

The mosquito, though hated by humans play a very important role nonetheless.They function as population controllers checking overpopulation in nature, which often leads to starvation and death. Mosquitoes are extremely effective vectors for disease thanks to their voracious feeding patterns and built-in hypodermic needles. In subarctic climates such as northern Canada and Russia, mosquitoes play a major role in plant pollination. Mosquitoes are also one reliable fast-food option that migrating birds, count on to fuel up and keep moving. Without them, the migratory process may not be possible and the numbers of birds that survive the journey could fall dramatically.

Even the cockroach plays a vital role in the life cycle of plants. As they crawl through flowers seeking food, they also transport pollen and thus help with plant reproduction. Cockroaches eat what other organisms leave laying, breaking it down and increasing the amount of nitrogen in the soil. Without their nitrogen-rich excrement, the forests would suffer. The leg of the cockroach is highly efficient, and scientists study its form and function as they develop prosthetic and robot applications. This research benefits those who have lost limbs, including veterans returning from war.

You see, everything God created is known for something and has a purpose.  What are you known for and what is the why for your life? Are we just here to chill, make money, build houses, buy expensive cars, marry, have children and die? I think and believe not.

If these animals which today are and tomorrow are not, have purposes, how much more the apex of his creation, humankind!

There are no illegitimate children, for all children are the heritages of God. God allowed you to come to this world because there is an assignment He wanted accomplished that required your presence. Research tells us that there are about seven billion people in the world and no two individuals have the same fingerprints.

Every human being has to contribute to his or her generation. No one was given life to take up space. If everyone were to discover his or her own value, balanced by the understanding that everyone else has a contribution to make, I believe all the needs in the world would be met.

The world needs your leadership. You exist to meet a specific need on earth that no one else can meet. Every human came to earth with something humanity needs.

Every human wants to be great! The desire for greatness is inherent in the human spirit and is a principal motivation for all human action and decisions. However few would admit this reality, and most would deny it.

Whatever God created he designed with the capability to do its job and server its purpose. If God created birds to fly, then he designed the birds with flight capability on the inside. Whatever God call for, He provides for. Birds do not become fliers; they are fliers. They are born with the capacity. They just have to wait to come of age. When the time is right and their wings strong enough, the mother will push them out of the nest and they will know what to do. Likewise fishes do not become swimmers; they are born to swim. The ability to float and maneuver in the water is in them.

Your assignment is as unique as your fingerprint – it is meant to distinguish you from every other person in the world.

You are the apex and the climax of God’s creation. His master-piece, a well thought through creation with special features for His unique assignment.

Ye Must Be Born Again

Successful businesses plan ahead and can tell us where their businesses is going to be ten, twenty or thirty years from now. As important as business is, your life is of much more importance. May I ask you a mind searching question? Where will you be hundred years from today? And why is no body telling us to plan for eternity?

Please we need to get our priorities right. A ten thousand years spent on earth is like a blink of an eye in eternity. We are afraid of being reminded that this is not it because, our minds cannot grasp the consequences of the kind of life we are living. The double-standards, selfishness, people pleasing, backbiting to get ahead of others, etc. would no longer be necessary factors for survival if we believed that there is a day of accountability. It is safer to take refuge in the lie that everything comes to an end when we die. We can continue to behave like the ostrich by burying our heads in the sand or judge ourselves and make the necessary adjustments.

For if we judge ourselves we are judged by no one.

Hundred years from now, if the Lord Jesus tarries, there’s a very high probability that most of us, if not all, will not be on this planet. Since the day man disobeyed God and activated the death sentence till now, all the geniuses of history and technological discoveries and advancements have not been able to reverse the judgment.

Where are the Nebuchadnezzars’ of Babylon, Darius’ of Persia and Caesars’ of Roman who ruled with the hand of iron and brought the entire nations of the world to their knees in their days? Where is Alexander the great who cried because there was no nation to conquer anymore? Where are the Albert Einsteins’, the Wright Brothers, the Thomas Edisons’, the Henry Fords’ and the Steve Jobs’ who through their ingenuity made the world a better place?

They are all nowhere to be found today. But is death the end?

Man does not actually die, he just sheds off his earthly house; his body returns to the soil but he lives on in another realm. This is not a theory, this is reality.

Don’t be deceived by the glamour of this world, it is an illusion; it’s not real.

If you were on a ship to a destination which you have only heard of but never been there, who will you like to be your Captain? Will you entrust your life in the hands of the Captain who is himself looking out for the way to your destination or the Captain who came from your destination?

I bet you will choose the Captain who has already been to where you are going?

Jesus said “For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.” (John 6:38)

Jesus also said “I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live forever: ……” (John 6:51)

No man ever had the audacity and the impetuous to make such a profound if not far reaching statements about himself but Jesus. Don’t leave the decision of your eternal destination to chance because you don’t a chance when you leave it to chance.

Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” (John 3:3)

 A journey of a thousand miles begins with a step, make a quality decision today praying the prayer below with all your heart;        

Heavenly Father, I come to you today as a sinner and a man who is lost. According to your word in Acts 2:21, “And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” I accept your sacrifice for sin on the cross, I receive Jesus into my life now. I confess Jesus as my King, Lord and savior. I receive eternal life now.

In Jesus Mighty name Amen.

Mind Under Attack

There are a lot of grey areas and unanswered questions in life. As we grow, it is humbling but important to admit that we don’t always have all the answers to all the circumstances of life. Sound judgment in this twenty-first century has become more difficult, with the borderline separating good and evil, acceptable and  unacceptable behavior becoming fainter and fainter by the hour.

The human mind is being bombarded with all sorts of filth through the various communication channels available in this century. Only a few are actually aware of the kind of dangerous programming we are all being subjected to unconsciously, on a day-by-day basis, in the name of “entertainment”.

The exposure of this filth to our senses causes arousals and stimulations leading to addiction to the object of exposure. This does not just happen, it is intentional. Some of the filth that attacks our minds are evident in the songs we listen to, movies we watch, the kind of literature we consume, and the unwholesome vibes carried by our airwaves.

Some people would like us to believe that there is nothing to all the pollution going on and that it’s just entertainment. I think not.
We know from God’s word that there is a spirit behind every manifestation especially when a song is sung, an instrument played, or words spoken. For example, we know that when David played the harp for King Saul, the evil spirits that troubled him left him. This tells us that songs and musical instruments can repel or attract evil spirits to torment one’s life.

There is no vacuum, it’s either the Spirit of God is leading a manifestation, or an evil spirit is influencing the performer.

What files are you downloading onto the computer of your mind? Are they positive, faith-filled and Holy Spirit-inspired files or files that will corrupt the entire operating system?

We are shocked by many terrible crimes committed day in and day out and we keep asking, what happened to her or him? We ask ourselves how a human being could be so heartless towards his neighbor, forgetting that this is only a manifestation of what has been rehearsed over and over in a corrupted mind as a result of exposure to unwholesome information or violence.

The most dangerous weapons in the world are not the atomic bomb or the hydrogen bomb and certainly not even the inter-continental ballistic missile. The most dangerous weapon is a corrupted mind or a mind without conscience; a twisted mind.

All the horrors in history occurred as a result of leaders whose minds were twisted or corrupted. For example, Adolf Hitler believed and spread the superiority of the “Germanic race” – what he called an Aryan “master race” and proclaimed Germany’s destiny to rule over inferior races.

This single corrupted belief led to the Holocaust where over six million Jews were put to the sword and World War II where at least forty million people were slain.

Will you call this an ordinary belief? I think not. Remember you are in charge of your own mind. You can decide today to channel it to only that which edifies your soul and spirit and ministers grace to your hearers. You may not be able to stop a bird from flying over your head but you sure can stop it from making its nest on your head. Don’t allow your mind to become the trash bin for gossip and silly talks but focus it on things that bring progress and rebuild your momentum to move one step higher and become better.

The syllabus for a healthy mind is perfectly inscribed at Philippians 4:8

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things

I rest my case.
