“When we got there, they called on one Babangida to bring vehicles. They brought the vehicles and began to drive us away. Outside Dapchi, they asked that who amongst us were fasting. And some of us that were fasting were asked to come down from the vehicle. They gave us Maltina, meat, groundnut cake and pure water.

“We had our prayers after breaking the fast. Then we continued our journey until we got to a place with a big tree, they stopped and we were asked to cook food, it was dark, so they put on lamps.

“After eating, then we continued the journey for a long time until we got to a place where there is river, we came down from the trucks and they asked us to enter some canoes that took us across the river.

“Across the river, they took us to a house in one village that I don’t know; we stayed there for sometime. The next day, they came to ask us to come out and we were taken to the river and continued the journey until we got to where a thick forest area. That was where they kept us; and they have not changed our location since then.

Nathaniel Bassey Pens Touching Message About Billy Graham’s Death

In the last 24 hours or so, News Media, social media and every other forms of Media have been awash with stories, captions and testimonies about this ONE LIFE. Billy Graham. Even secular News Media have spoken in such a honorable manner about this Man of God. As I read and listen closely, I’m yet to see anything that speaks about his material possessions. He hasn’t dominated global headlines because of riches and material wealth. But instead the whole of creation is standing because of the JESUS He preached so unmistakably and unambiguously, and the accompanying Life He lived. I read of Don Moen’s testimony whose Father in law was saved due to Billy’s Radio Broadcast in the 1950s. And because of that one experience changed the whole course of life of that family. One of whom is Don’s Wife. Imagine the number of Pastors saved, the Ministries Born, and the multitudes eternally saved because one man preached and lived JESUS.

I did a search on google this morning and found out the name BILLY GRAHAM was the most trending name in the World in 24 hours. Something many seek after. But something another man achieved even without seeking. But rather by seeking Christ’s kingdom and righteousness. And not just that – in the past 24 hours, there’s been so much mention of the name JESUS on secular news media and on social media because of Evangelist Graham.As I read all of these, it becomes clear what God intends our lives to be. One that dispenses the GLORY OF GOD. Paul puts it this way…. “But thank God! He has made us his captives and continues to lead us along in Christ’s triumphal procession. Now he uses us to spread the knowledge of Christ everywhere, like a sweet perfume.”

‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭2:14‬ ‭NLT‬‬.

As the body of Christ world over celebrates the transition of one of her generals, this occasion leaves me with some pertinent questions. What am I preaching? And How am I living? Am I preaching and living Christ? What fragrance is my life exuding? And what fragrance would it leave behind?

It is true what Jesus said, that a man’s life does not consist of the things that He owns.

And I dare to add, “but rather, about the LIVES He touched.” WHAT A LIFE !
BILLY GRAHAM!

Black Panther Star Letitia Wright Turns To Christianity

Black Panther Star Letitia Wright Turns To Christianity

Guyanese-born British actress, Letitia Wright who played the role of Princess Shuri – the little sister ofKing T’Challa (the main character of “Black Panther”) –  says she nearly walked away from acting during a difficult time in her life but that God led her back to her passion.

The young actress revealed that she once had a time when she struggled with idolizing acting which made her take a break and focus on her Christian faith.

“I was going through a lot, a very difficult time in my life and I just 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 God and my relationship with God and I became a Christian, It really just gave me so much love and light within myself. I felt secure and I felt 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.”

Wright claims that separating her sense of self-worth from the parts she gets has helped her as an actress.

“My happiness wasn’t dependent on [getting a part]. It was dependent on my relationship with God,”

The actress said she is grateful for her faith which continues to keep her centered.

“I am centered in who I am and I’m really grateful. I’m not perfect especially as a Christian. You’re not perfect but you’re walking every day and trying to just stay connected…It’s helped me a lot, and I’m really grateful.”

New post: How Evangelist Nick Vujicic Dealt With “Deep Dark Valley” In 2011

Serbian-Australian Christian Evangelist and Motivational Speaker, Nick Vujicic  reveals how he once had a battle with a special kind of depression which he called “deep dark valley”.

Vujicic spoke with Tim Clinton, president of the American Association of Christian Counselors, during a show where he opened up about what Clinton called the “merciless bullying” and “deep depression” he faced as a child.

The evangelist said he’s “definitely not the biggest victim of bullying in the world,” but still needs the ‘beautiful Christian home’ that his parents in Australia provided to act as a refuge from what he was experiencing at school.

While sharing his view on this present generation he said these days,”the saddest moments of my life are seeing people who don’t see their value, who don’t see their potential, who believe the lies that they are ugly, or that they are a failure, or that they’ll never become someone that they are happy with..

“As strong as I am in my faith and talking to presidents about God, there are times when Nick has his ups and downs,” Nick shared

“I think it was 2011 where I went through a very deep dark valley for about two to three months, My flesh didn’t feel like God was there,” he said, noting that what he had to do was quote Scripture every hour.

“Faith comes by hearing of the Word. Keep going, one day at a time,” he advised others going through similar difficulties.

*MARRIED BUT NO SEX – Part 2

*A Story Written By Ayodele Adeoye

‘Would I supervise your spiritual life and also supervise your sexual life? Sexuality in marriage does not contaminate spirituality. Bro Solo why have you not touched your wife? I am your pastor and I have been sleeping with my wife for more than 20 years now. Prayer cannot replace sex in marriage. You are now married and licensed to have sex. Making love to your wife is no more a sin.’

‘I know it is possible you are a virgin but today virginity is no longer profitable. If you don’t know how to do it, I am here to teach you. You can ask me any question on sex. Sis Rose is now yours and by my authority, her parent’s authority and the authority of heaven you can kiss her, romance her and sleep with her as many times as is convenient for both of you. The way you rush your first meal after a long chain fasting is the same way I expect you to rush your wife. If there’s an issue, you can confide in me.’

‘Thank you, addy, we shall do the needful as you have counselled’, Bro Solo said. After seeing the Pastor off to the other side of the road where his car was parked, the Pastor turned to the couple and said, ‘Sis Rose ensure you call me later to let me know how everything goes. Bye! Bye!’ Read More »

Yvonne

International gospel recording artist and music minister, Yvonne presents her first single of the year as she marks her birthday today. The song is titled “Izurukeme” and it features her mentor, Samsong.

Commenting on the new single, Yvonne who is also a song editor and teacher, said:

“I wrote this song when I encountered God and found out He is everything and much more. I looked at Him and said “Izurukeme” meaning “You are more than enough” because on every scale and every situation or circumstance, He outweighs the balance and knocks out the scale because He is too much.

“Having my father in the Lord, mentor and teacher, Samsong who I have listened to for 14 years of my life on this song means a lot to me. This one will bless you and as you listen. May the All-Sufficient God visit you in the name of Jesus, Amen .”
