Meet The ‘Black Panther’ Star Who Gave Up Everything For Christ,

Meet The ‘Black Panther’ Star Who Gave Up Everything For Christ.

Black Panther is nothing short of a phenomenon. The latest installment in the wildly successful “Marvel” movie series, it has become the second-highest grossing four-day opening in movie history, raking in $242 million. The film has been praised by critics and received a 97% rating on review
site Rotten Tomatoes.

“A film that fulfills the most rote demands of superhero spectacle, yet does so with style and subtexts that feel bracingly, joyfully groundbreaking,” wrote Ann Hornaday at the Washington Post.

But even more remarkable than box-office records and glowing reviews is the story behind actress Letitia Wright, who plays T’Challa’s little sister, Shuri. Wright, who appeared on British talk show This Morning , talked about how she almost missed out on the role after hitting a crisis in her life, dumping acting and going on a search for God.

“I needed to take a break from acting because I really idolized it. So I came off from it and I went on a journey to discover my relationship with God, and I became a Christian,” Wright said in the interview aired Feb. 9.

“It really just gave me so much love and light within myself. I felt secure, like I didn’t need validation from anyone else, or from getting a part. My happiness wasn’t dependent on that, it was dependent on my relationship with God.”

At the very depths of her depression, the British actress ended up coming to Christ after attending a London actors’ Bible study. So convinced that she had to put God first, she even turned down an acting role that would have set her alongside Nicole Kidman and Elle Fanning.

“I remember God was like, to me, ‘Give up the job,’” the actress told Vanity Fair . “I can give you more than that; I just need you right now. Give up the job.”

Then, after laying down her own ambition and looking to the Lord, she was offered this gigantic role in Black Panther

Grace Lyrics by Solomon Lange

Amazing grace is the sweetest sound
That changed my life, I once was lost
But now I’m found,
Was blind but now I see
You took my shame, you took my pain
My Jesus gave me his
Now I reign I reign with him
All my days I’ll give him my praise

Everywhere that I go
Everything that I do
All I see is grace
Grace grace grace
I see grace
Grace great grace
All I see is grace
Grace great grace

Amazing grace amazing grace
Is the story of my life
It’s not by power
It’s not by might
It’s by the spirit of the lord
It’s not by hard work
It’s not by skills
Divine help is what i enjoy
I am not afraid of tomorrow
I have grace great grace

The hand of Jehovah
Is at work in my life
The spirit of Yahweh
Is at work in my heart

Everywhere that I go
Everything that I do
All I see is grace
Everywhere that I go
Everything that I do
All I see is grace
Everywhere that I go

Everywhere that I go

The grace of god is my advantage

All I see is grace
The weapons of our warfare are not canal

They are mighty, they are mighty through God
All I see is grace
Great grace, all I see is grace
All I see is grace.

The grace of our lord Jesus Christ
The love of the father
And the sweet fellowship of the Holy Spirit
Abiding with us all the days of our lives and forever

“Tithe Should Be Paid Out Of Love Not Fear” – Bishop Mike Okonkwo

“Tithe Should Be Paid Out Of Love Not Fear” – Bishop Mike Okonkwo

“Tithe Should Be Paid Out Of Love Not Fear” – Bishop Mike Okonkwo

In a video that has now gone viral, Bishop Mike Okonkwo, founder of the Redeemed Evangelical Mission (TREM),  said pastors are in the habit of using certain “semantics” to manipulate their members into paying tithe.

He said, “The first mention of tithe, there was no curse in it. Abraham gave the tithe of all to Melchizedek which was before the law. There was no curse and he did it willingly.

“I have frightened the church with curses for not paying tithes and that was because I didn’t know any better.

“You know we conjure all kinds of semantics like, ‘If you don’t pay your tithe, your life will be tight,’ and the people pay out of fear without God’s blessing.

“God wants you to pay tithe out of love, it shouldn’t be about the money, but about Jesus.”

In another video, the pastor dispelled the first fruit doctrine – a teaching by some Pentecostal pastors to their members to give all of their first salaries in the year or the first profit realized from their business undertakings as offerings.

Bishop Okonkwo said other pastors have approached him to also enforce payment of first fruit in his church, but he had always refused the counsel.

“Can you imagine all the businessmen, all the profit you made and you bring them to my feet. Even if I did not read it in the Bible, my conscience will not allow me.

“It is not all the gifts you take, take only the one you will be able to go to bed,” he said.

Pastor Tony Rapu Debunks Involvement In N23M Diesel Deal Fraud

Reacting to the news that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Lagos Zonal office, arraigned one Olawunmi Dilureni before Justice S.O. Solebo of the Lagos State High Court sitting in Ikeja on an eight-count charge of conspiracy, obtaining money by false pretence and stealing to the tune of Twenty-three Million, Three Hundred and Twenty Thousand Naira (N23,320,000. 00), House of Freedom has released a press statement debunking the involvement of Dr. Tony Rapu, pastor of This Present House Church.

The press statement reads:

“Our attention has been drawn to a story carried by various media outlets stating that someone named ‘Tony Rapu’ is a party in an alleged fraud case involving one Olawunmi Dilureni and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission(EFCC). We hereby notify the public that Pastor Tony Rapu is in no way connected to the alleged fraud case. Pastor Rapu never invested in a diesel supply business as alleged, nor has he been defrauded by any Olawunmi Oluremi; neither is he a party to any case with the EFCC. We request the media outlets concerned to immediately retract the publications to avoid further action.

– The House of Freedom “It was alleged that the defendant alongside Lola Aremu Anjorin, Tunde Jamiu, Oluremi Osobu
and Home Concepts Limited (all at large) conspired to defraud the popular pastor, Dr. Tony Rapu, Nellie St. Matthew-Daniel and Eyitope St. Matthew-Daniel of the money.

However Dr. Tony Rapu has denied his involvement in the deal and the on-going trial to which the defendant pleaded not guilty to the charge when it was read to her.

New: Church Takes Over Boxing Champion Mike Tyson’s Mansion

Church Takes Over Boxing Champion Mike Tyson’s Mansion

– The Living Word Sanctuary Church takes over Mike Tyson mansion

The Living Word Sanctuary Church has taken a mansion which used to belong to former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson.

The boxing champion’s Southington Township home and 60-acre estate mansion are to be converted into a church.

Tyson bought the estate, which was near the home of boxing promoter Don King, and lived there after he was released from prison for rape. He sold it to Paul Monea. Monea was imprisoned in 2007 – eight years after he bought the property from Tyson for $1.3m. The property then fell into disrepair.

Living Word Sanctuary got the property when it reached a deal with a real estate investor to pay $50,000 in back taxes.

 

The swimming pool room had been turned into the main auditorium while the basketball court turned into a youth center.

Speaking to the Warren Tribune-Chronicle, church pastor Nicholas DeJacimo said:

“Us getting this is a miracle.

“It was basically donated to us because the former owner needed to write it off. I tell the congregation God literally gave us this.”

“He literally gave us a free campus to do whatever we want. We will use it to glorify him.”

“Work is continuing on the renovation. Once completed church members will move from the local YMCA where they’ve recently been meeting.”

DeJacimo said Tyson’s great room will be a venue for weddings and other ceremonies. The living quarters on the second floor will become offices.

The details around the fireplace, where Tyson reportedly kept his championship belts, will remain.

But what about his infamous tiger cages?

“We figured we’re going to get four more tigers. No, just kidding,” the pastor said with a laugh. That space on the property will be used for an outdoor pavilion.

New: American Christian Elder Tried To Get Gandhi To Accept Jesus – Response Letter Sold For $50000

American Christian Elder Tried To Get Gandhi To Accept Jesus – Response Letter Sold For $50000

American Christian Elder Tried To Get Gandhi To Accept Jesus – Response Letter Sold For $50000

A Christian leader tried to get Indian religious and political leader, Mahatma Gandhi, to accept Jesus in 1926. The response letter written by Gandhi in which he acknowledged Jesus, has been sold for $50,000 (£36,275).

The letter was written to respond to the one sent by Milton Newberry Frantz, a Christian elder in the US at the time, and is dated 6 April 1926.

Frantz had written to Gandhi, a devout Hindu who was by then emerging as a prominent figure in the Indian independence movement, inviting him to read an article the American had written about Christianity.

Gandhi wrote back to Frantz from the Sabarmati ashram, in the western Indian state of Gujarat, praising Jesus but saying he was unable to fully accept the Christian view of him.

According to the Raab Collection, the letter is the only one that has come to market in which Gandhi mentions Jesus 

The letter has been in a private collection for decades and is being sold by the Pennsylvania-based Raab Collection, though it would not reveal who has bought it.

The Raab Collection said their ‘research discloses no other letter of Gandhi mentioning Jesus to have ever reached the public market.’
