Just Walk Out

In 1865, Congress passed and rectified the 13th Amendment to the United States Constitution. The 13th Amendment abolished slavery in the United States and provides that

“Neither slavery or involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States or any place under its jurisdiction.”

Therefore all slaves within the United States or any place under the jurisdiction of the United States was by this amendment legally free from their slave masters. But what would happen if a slave somewhere in one of the plantations did not hear and is ill informed about this declaration of freedom ?

Your guess is as good as mine; servitude and slavery continues unabated although legally free but vitally or in reality still a slave subject to the task master. For this slave to experience the freedom the constitution provides, he/she has to first be well informed about the declaration and what it means, secondly he/she needs a proof by way of documentation which authenticates the information and lastly based on the proof make a quality decision no longer to be a slave.

Over 2,ooo years ago, the crucifixion of Jesus was the sovereign declaration in the spirit that all who call upon His name shall be saved from eternal destruction. Yet many who have not heard about this are still trying to battle the enemy in their own strength; trying to make two ends meet. Some are still afflicted with all kinds of infirmities which have already been taken care of by the savior.

The documentation that authenticates and guarantees our perpetual freedom and emancipation is the Holy Bible. This is the legal document for the believer. Thorough knowledge of this legal document is what will put you over the accusations and tyranny of the slave master called the Devil.

First Corinthians chapter 5 verse 17 of this document tells us that “If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature the old is gone the new has come”. This is the sovereign declaration of the Almighty God about the man who has accepted the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross.

This is enough to secure your freedom forever. This new creature has no past, created in the image of the second and the last Adam. This new creation is born by the incorruptible, indestructible word of God therefore they cannot be defeated or sick. This new creation is born a master to the devil.

Mark Chapter 16 verse 17 say “And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues.” You can walk out on the devil today and there is nothing he can do for because he has nothing of his in you. Gloooory to God.

Make My Baby Leap

It is good to dream dreams but at some point in time you have to get up and fulfill them because dreams don’t automatically get fulfilled themselves. What good is pregnancy if the woman cannot be delivered of the baby when her time is due? Dreams and visions may be God given, but can die prematurely if not rigorously pursued to bring to pass. Dreams and visions can die from neglect or unfavorable environment. As a viable seed needs an equally fertile ground to realize its forest potential so greatness needs suitable company for manifestation.
Before Elizabeth met Mary, there was no record that she felt the movement of her baby. There is a possibility this lack of feeling of the baby was a worry to her as she over hears the conversation of other pregnant women in the neighborhood discussing how their babies frequently kicked in the early hours of the morning.

She was worried because she did not know the greatness of what she carried. But something happened when Mary visited Elizabeth as advised by the angel of God. And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost: (Luke 1:41)

Who makes your lost dreams and aspirations come alive once again in your life?

Whose voice causes the dry bones of your ideas, and vision to resurrect with a renewed sense of fulfillment of purpose in your life? Don’t entertain dream killers and abortionist in your life instead surround yourself with friends and people who motivate you to try one more time even when you may have been knocked down several times in the past. Surround yourself with voices that lift you up not voices that will give you one hundred and one reasons the vision cannot be accomplished. Surround yourself with possibility thinkers not problem  announcers.

History does not remember you because you explained and justified your situation or challenges or inabilities in life, anyone can do that.
History remembers you because the challenges or situation had no power to devour your inner richness poured into you by the creator(God) and that you emptied yourself through service for the benefit of your generation and even generations yet unborn to time.

The Dead Are Still Living

This is rather a strange and difficult area to talk about because thoughts about what happens after death make people very uncomfortable.

As uncomfortable as it may be this is an unavoidable reality and pretending we will not get there is like the Ostrich who hides its head in the sand at an impending danger. If even we live a thousand years on earth our lives will still come to an end one day. Have you stopped to think about the great men in history that we read about; Alexander the great, Martin Luther King Jr., Abraham Lincoln just to mention but a few who once walked on the face of this earth are all no more. One day you will also be no more seen on this earth but you will still exist somewhere eternally.

This makes this subject of paramount importance. If even you live a thousand years on earth compared to eternity, is like a drop of water in an ocean, very negligible. As negligible as the time spent on earth may be, how we spend it determines where we spend eternity.

If this is so, then why are we not keen on spending our time here on earth in such a way that we will gain a good place in eternity?
Why are we careless about life ? we plan for everything but one way or another we fail to plan for the most important thing in life.

The Bible Says “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)

This Son God gave to the world He loved so much is called Jesus. There are only two destinations in eternity; Heaven and Hell. Jesus is the Lord of Heaven and this is what He said.

“In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know. Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way? Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:2-6).

This message of eternal life by accepting the Lordship of Jesus is not an option but an ultimatum. It is the will of God that none perishes, not even a soul. Perish here means separation from God in Hell forever and ever where there will be torment and gnashing of teeth without relief forever and ever.

“The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” (2 Peter 3:9).

No one can go to heaven by any other way but by Jesus because He is the Lord of Heaven, He owns Heaven. My dear Friend dead is not the end of life it is only promotion to another realm of life. You will continue to exist after death but here will you be ? that’s the million dollar question. I beg you in the name of Jesus if you don’t have a relationship with Jesus to pray the prayer below and mean it from the depth of your heart and you will be saved.

Dear Lord Jesus, for too long I’ve kept you out of my life. I know that I am a sinner and that I cannot save myself. No longer will I close the door when I hear you knocking. By faith I gratefully receive your gift of salvation. I am ready to trust you as my Lord and Savior. Thank you, Lord Jesus, for coming to earth. I believe you are the Son of God who died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead on the third day. Thank you for bearing my sins and giving me the gift of eternal life. I believe your words are true. Come into my heart, Lord Jesus, and be my Savior. Amen.

God Bless You.
