[New post] Pastor David Ibiyeomie Officially Helps Me Surrender My Life To Jesus – OluKemi Olunloyo

Yesterday Tuesday 16th of January 2018 marked 7 days I left #Portharcourt prison. Been doing outdoor therapy as instructed by my psychotherapist. Venturing out safely into neighborhoods which I’ve been doing as part of my treatment of depression.
.
I normally go to 3pm prayers at the Catholic church down the street to get spiritual energy. Last night, I decided to go to New GRA to worship at #Salvationministries. I walked into the kingdom of God like no other.
.
This church was very different. I was lifted! They were having 4.30pm prayers after a 21 day fast. I joined them in an energized service in a God anointed mega church. I ate communion and drank wine. The Lord was everywhere!

New: Does Google have a Spectre fix that doesn’t slow down PCs?

Does Google have a Spectre fix that doesn’t slow down PCs?

BY PATRICK DEVANEY

 

When the Spectre and Meltdown vulnerabilities hit last week, major tech firms have been falling over each other trying to get their fixes out there. The problem so far is that all fixes that have been pushed by Microsoft and Intel have actually slowed down the computers that have received them. Google isn’t happy with this situation and the search giant thinks it can close up the vulnerabilities without affecting processor performance.

6 QUICK AND EASY TRICKS TO SPEED UP YOUR COMPUTER

READ NOW

With Google’s fix to the Variant 2 of the Spectre attack, Google uses software patches to address the problem, rather than just disabling the affected CPU features. Variant 2 is considered the toughest Spectre issue to fix without affecting performance and Google claim that their patch has a negligent impact on performance. In fact, in a security blog postRetpoline, the name of Google’s software-implemented patch, is claimed have no or little impact:

“Retpoline sequences are a software construct which allow indirect branches to be isolated from speculative execution. This may be applied to protect sensitive binaries (such as operating system or hypervisor implementations) from branch target injection attacks against their indirect branches.”

Google believes that Retpoline based protection is the best performing for Variant 2 Spectre issues on current hardware. Google hopes that by sharing their findings publicly they’ll be adopted industry-wide. Watch this space.

News:TechAways – The week best bits in 4 bites

Highlights and blackouts at CES

Every year, thousands of companies and hundreds of thousands of punters gather at the world’s biggest tech conference to marvel at the shape of things to come.

Highlights of this year’s CES, which ended last week, included Sony’s new Aibo robodog, a flying phone case for aerial selfies, and a robotic exoskeleton that can turn you into the 8,000-pound gorilla in the room.

There were robots that played (and won at) Scrabble and ping-pong, yet more self-driving cars, and VR helmets galore. Plus a device that charges your phone on the other side of the room.

But the real star of the show – according to Twitter – was the brief power outage when everything stopped working. Was that a glimpse of the future, too?

A robot playing Scrabble, self-driving cars, flying phone case for aerial selfies and a power outage. Guess what is the hottest news about this year’s CES.

New bank card with a cell phone chip

Sprint and Dynamics Inc. have unveiled a single super-smart card to replace your current deck of credit, debit, and loyalty cards.

Although as thin as a conventional bank card, the Wallet Card has an e-ink display and buttons to scroll between functions. And unlike Venmo and Apple Pay, you can pop it into an ATM to grab cash, too.

But the real innovation is that this card has a cell phone antenna that allows it to update data so you can look at your latest balance, lock an account,or perform transactions.

That’s all great – as long as you’re okay with your bank tracking your location.

One card to rule them all. Sprint and Dynamics unveils a super-smart card to replace all your current ones. Although once you use it, you won’t disappear but rather get tracked.

Swallow this to track your farts

Scientists and medics are increasingly using sensors and probes you swallow to find out more about what goes on – and goes wrong – under the hood.

Pressure readings, acidity, and medication activity can already be monitored, so it was only a matter of time before a gadget was invented that monitors your thunder down under.

Yes, swallow this vitamin pill-sized gizmo and it will travel down the Hersey Highway to record your gut gas. (Or, in adult terms, the capsule gathers readings on oxygen, hydrogen and carbon dioxide in your alimentary canal.)

The idea is to see how different diets can affect your level of internal windiness – and its health implications. But we’re just glad it gives us the opportunity to write about bottom burps.

Whereas some gases are polluting the planet, scientists have come up with a vitamin pill-sized gizmo to monitor ours. Curious to see what’s going on down under?

Exposed ice could lead to life on Mars

We’ve known that Mars has water for a while now, but it was all thought to be underground. Now it looks like there is water near the surface, too, making the red planet a little more hospitable.

In fact, scientists who spotted the near-surface ice sheets from pictures taken by NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter say it’s a “game-changer” for both exploration and colonization. In theory, you could go out with a bucket and spade and take what you needed – rather than blasting water-bearing rocks.

So far, eight sites have been discovered – and even better, they’re mostly in the warmer parts of the planet. Now all we have to do is get there and figure out what to eat.

It looks like Mars is turning into a (little bit) more hospitable planet. Not only there is water, but we could take what we need just by spading the surface.

 

What are you waiting for……

There are no secret formulas for success in anything. Work hard, be nice to people and stay true to who you are.

That makes the difference….

Good Morning

Message: Been-Sold-out-to-God

Today’s SOD – 2018-01-16
TOPIC: BEING SOLD OUT TO GOD

SCRIPTURE: So Abram departed,”as the Lord had spoken unto him; and Lot went with him”: and Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran. Genesis 12:4.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: God directs all the affairs of the dedicated.

Yesterday,”we looked at what it means to be dedicated to God. We saw twelve different definitions of dedication. It is important you go through yesterday’s message again in order to have a full grasp of it. This is because a person is a product of his level of understanding. What a man knows is what he shows. To be dedicated to God, there is a need to know what dedication is all about.

Today, we shall explore one of the definitions of dedication, which is being sold out to God.

From our anchor passage, we understand that Abraham, by his action, was sold out to God. When God asked him to get out of his land, family and kindred to a land He would show him, he obeyed and went out, not knowing from the beginning, exactly where he was going. That was dedication.

Now, what does it mean to be sold out to God?

1. Being sold out to God means allowing God to have the ownership of your life in reality and in totality
It is not allowing your life to be controlled by yourself. Dedicated people do not own their lives, time, or resources. When a person says, ‘I own my life; I will live my life the way I want it. Don’t tell me what to do with my life’, it means such a person is not dedicated to God.

2. Being sold to God means allowing God to dictate the direction of your life.
When God dictates the direction of your life, you do not do things as you want; it means you are being sold out to God.

3. Being sold out to God means allowing God to have the final say over the issues of your life.
A person is not sold out to God when God does not have the final say over the issues of his or her life, work, marriage, business, etc.

4. Being sold out to God means sacrificing your personal agenda on the altar of consecration and relationship with God
This means, you only do what God wants you to do. You will not do what is not in God’s agenda for your life.

REMEMBER THIS”: God directs all the affairs of the dedicated.

ASSIGNMENTS:
1. Make up your mind to be sold out to God.
2. Let God dictate and direct the affairs and details of your life.

PRAYER: O Lord,”I ask for the grace to be sold out to You completely, in Jesus’ Name.

FOR FURTHER UNDERSTANDING, GET THIS MESSAGE”: UNDERSTANDING DEDICATION (PART 1).

AMAZING FACT: Noise causes the pupils of your eyes to dilate. Even very small noises can do this.

DAILY READING”: Genesis 32:13 to 34:31,”Matthew 11″:7 to 30,”Psalm 14″:1 to 7,”Proverbs 3″:19 to 20.

Daily Devotion : Redeemed for Divine Promotion

OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL

DATE: SUNDAY 7TH JANUARY 2018

THEME: REDEEMED FOR DIVINE PROMOTION

Memorise:
Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: Colossians 1:13

Read: Psalm 75:5-7

5 Lift not up your horn on high: speak not with a stiff neck.

6 For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south.

7 But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.

Message

“ The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” John 10:10

For you to reap the full benefits of the abundant life that Jesus Christ came to give, you need to understand the character of this life. Many children of God short-change themselves because they do not know that the redemption which Jesus Christ earned for us through His Blood is an all-round redemption that touches every aspect of our lives (Colossians 1:14,20). For example, not only did He redeem us from the power of sin, He also translated us to become citizens of God’s Kingdom. As Kingdom citizens, we are lifted above principalities and powers of this world. The Holy Spirit makes this truth clear through these verses of the Scripture:

“Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:” Ephesians 1:20-21

“And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:” Ephesians 2:6

The implication of this is that the devil should no longer dominate, buffet or torment us anymore because we are no longer under his feet, where sin had previously kept us. We have been bought with a price that frees us from the tyrant master (1 Corinthians 7:23, Hebrews 2:14). We are divinely promoted as kings and priests, as declared in Revelation 5:10:

“And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.”

We are redeemed and promoted above sorrow, poverty, sickness and every form of oppression of the devil. Beloved, learn to celebrate and enforce the divine promotion you have obtained through redemption. Moreover, if you desire promotion in any facet of life, our text tell us that only God promotes. Therefore, put your trust in God, and your promotion will manifest sooner rather than later, and it will be beyond your wildest imagination in Jesus’ Name.

Action Point:
Spend some quality time to celebrate your divine promotion by rendering high praises to God.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Genesis 17-18 and Revelation 6:3-17

AUTHOR : PASTOR E. A. ADEBOYE

HYMN 6: A NEW THING
(Tune: There shall be showers of Blessing)

1. We will soon shout Halleluyah

Rivers in desert now flowing

3. We will soon shout Halleluyah
Because God will do new things
The barren will be fruitful soon

4. We will soon shout Halleluyah
Because God will do new things
Poverty will be forgotten
Stagnancy will soon be gone.

5. We will soon shout Hallelujah
Because God will do new things
To all miracles are given
There shall be celebrations

6. We will soon shout Halleluyah
Because God will do new things
Many will have testimonies
Of prayers answered fully

7. We will soon shout Halleluyah
Because God will do new things
One of us will chase a thousand
Two will conquer ten thousands.

8. We will soon shout Halleluyah
Because God will do new things
Songs of praises we will sing
Halleluyah to our King.

God bless you

gossip: Pastor Adeboye’s Wife Shares How She Almost Had 12 Children

Wife of the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor (Mrs) Folu Adeboye has shared that she had wanted to give birth to a dozen children.
The first family of the RCCG are blessed with four children who are all married – Pastor (Mrs) Folu Adeboye, Mummy G.O as she’s fondly called said her inability to have 12 biological children fueled her love for children hence her interest in the mission’s children department.

She was speaking on a lighter mood to children at the 2017 RCCG Children’s Party organised to fete with the children on Friday at the Redemption Camp – it was attended by over 7,000 children.

The official broadcaster of Dove TV of RCCG said the event featured presentation from guest artiste including Ayan Jesu and Perfected Praise while the children were treated to several games and other entertaining activities.

“We prepared for 7000 children, with packs of food, gift packs and other items, we were supported by Pastor’s Seed Forum (PSF) with 2000 packs,” she said.

“If there is anything I am leaving with you this year, it is the love of God. If God love us for much then we should also love Him. You cannot show your love until you love your brothers, sisters, parents. When you love them you have loved the lord,” she urged the children.
