The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all. Amen. ~ 2corinthians 13:14 The verse above simply spells out the distinct administrative roles of the Trinity. Jesus Christ came in the fullness of Grace to redeem the human race (John 1:16), […]Intimacy With The Holy Spirit.
If I would find the right words to express my affection for you; among many damsels, you are excellent.
I chanced upon this beautiful vineyard and was captivated by the fragrance of clusters of henna blossoms, stirring up a desire to pursue the hidden essence of this tower.
She is a fortress of pearls and her wisdom is from that far land. Ahava, you are worthy of being loved.
When our paths crossed, like two rivers joined together, you felt like the very extension of me.
Pure love, peace and strength adorns you, your beauty is sweeter than Melita.
I have searched the earth for many names to call you because no single word could match what I have found.
I call you Chonta because you are beautiful inside out and like the palm tree, you flourish against all odds.
… O Tiaraoluwa, the body of God! I’ll call you Kilion, for the Lord made you perfect and complete.
Malki is your Lord and the river that flows from your secret place leaves men awestruck,
‘Makayla – Who is like God!?‘
Come away with me Neshama 💞
Come away with me Havannah 💕
Come away with me Dodi ❤
I want to talk to you about Martyrs today.
Ones who have been killed because of their faith and beliefs. The origin of the word martyr is the Greek word ‘martur’ which means ‘WITNESS’; He’s one who openly professes his faith through words and actions.
The world hates the martyr or the witness because the world has not known Light; nevertheless the martyr has been sent to that same world so he tirelessly keeps at the work amidst all resistances, being resolute at accomplishing that which the Master sent him to do; up until he/she takes his/her last breath.
The world shouts at the top of their lungs’Rid the earth of such a man! he is not fit to live!’, as was said of Paul (Acts 22:22),
‘Crucify HIM!’ as was said of our Lord Jesus Christ (John 19:15),
‘Give me his head on a platter!’ as was said of John the Baptist (Matt 14:8)
…all these and many more from the beginning of the early church till today have been ruthlessly killed because of their faith in God.
Till date, the Church is still being persecuted and believers are being martyred in many parts of the world.
The body of Christ celebrates these martyrs and are constantly prepared to die for Christ Jesus too: they’re not afraid to lose their lives for Jesus and by so doing, these ones have gained Life. The blood of the martyr causes revival and awakens the Spirit of Christ in the churches.
Cold or lukewarm Christians also hail martyrs, they probably make the greatest noise about them in approval and praise, but are never ready to take the path of the martyr: they are scared to lose their lives so they lose it.
The martyrs’ testimony is that they loved not their lives, even onto death.
We can only have this same testimony if we stop living for today but live for the day of the Lord; having to keep our eyes stayed on the author and finisher of our faith and storing our treasures in Heavens till we see HIM come and become like HE is.
Let us teach one another, even our children, about Martyrdom and let us be ready to die daily for Jesus Christ because we will see more martyrs in the last day than ever because darkness and wickedness in this world would be at peak before Christ returns.
The book of Revelation records that mystery Babylon, the notorious prostitute would be drunk with the blood of the saints.
Then I saw that the woman was drunk on the blood of the saints and on the blood of the witnesses to Jesus. When I saw her, I was greatly astonished.
Revelation 17:6 HCSB
Note: ‘What you can’t die for’ is that which can’t give you Life and it’s not worth living for.

I love you all ❤
I see you have much love for people but why do you always try to hide it?
…you’ve been made to believe, by the experiences of life, that showing forth love is an exhibition of weakness and vulnerability.
I can’t blame you for that, most of your scars came from the people you loved and all this while, time hasn’t cleared that up yet …would it?
From the backside, you’ve learnt the tough way of surviving and you have kept your emotions behind bars… Do you not see the open doors and the streak of Light?
Neshama, listen to my voice and follow the Light out of that tomb
Yeah, pick yourself up and love again
Step out and breath, have a taste of freedom again
See the rivers of love inside you hitting their banks, won’t you pull down those limitations?
Love is strong, that’s your strength
Love is beautiful, that’s your make-up
Love and be loved ❤

The highest form of deception a believer can live in is having the thought that he/she needs God and something : God and education, God and a job, God and the right connections, God and certificates, God and a husband/wife, God and money, God and this, God and that…
Sometimes, it can be that subtle and linger on for years without us realizing that we are wasting a chunk of our time and making investments into unnecessary things.
So we leave God’s presence every now again to look for something we feel is missing. Or we stand in HIS presence and still have our focus elsewhere.
Example was the man at the pool of Bethesda ; O yes! He met Jesus and still he thought he needed Jesus Christ and the pool (HE was probably thinking that Jesus was going to cause the stirring of the water so he can enter and get healed) – John 5
My brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers, we all have needs and wants but it’s of no use lifting them above our love for God… because everything can be found in Christ Jesus. In HIS presence, there’s fullness of joy and at HIS right hand pleasures forevermore (Ps 16:11)
We don’t need God and any other thing because in God, HE has given us all things that pertains to life and godliness (2 Peter 1:3)
All we need is actually Jesus Christ, know HIM and grow in HIM.
All we need is Jesus Christ, abide in HIM.
All men only need Jesus Christ, HE is the only ONE missing link in the lives of the fallen and the lost.
GOD BLESS YOU! 🙏
Hi guys, subscribe, share and like to bless OTHERS too. I love you all. ❤
A generation who has turned away from their God, chasing after the desires of their flesh and paying no heed to the voice of their creator.
There was a time when Christians grew in the faith to become a lot more zealous for God but today, being zealous is seen as you being just a baby Christian! How cold have we become!?
When Christians don’t want to hear you speak about scriptures no more. When the very words that should bring healing to all creation is sickening to the backslidden.
A stiff generation that shifts the blame for their chills on God. When Christians use God as an excuse for not being close to HIM.
We know too much, knowledge abounds, yet… we lack the most important thing, the knowledge of the gospel of Christ.
…stiffled by flesh and self, we nurture the beasts within; pride, wickedness and arrogance? how long till we are eaten up?
We claim we are opened minded, associating with the devil and allowing his ways into our porches… we ride in the boat called compromise anytime the tides rises, have we lost sight of our King?
We’ll rather allow our neighbors to go to hell… our own ‘salvation’ is just okay for us… not to care about others headed for destruction.
Love seems like a mirage to us, for we only love ourselves and have no love for the next person in the pew.
Repent! For the time of our Lord Jesus Christ’s return is here!!!
Time is running out!
Happy New Year ❤🎉🎉🎉
My prayer is that many would come out of the world and it’s ways and know God 😊

Many mistaken the book to be about making love or sex, but they miss the truth that it’s more than just that
It’s about communion and fellowship with God and intimacy with our Lord Jesus, Our Bridegroom; I’ll share a few things I learnt from the first chapter :
Soo many people wrote songs, including David, but it’s that of Solomon that is referred to as the Song of all Songs because of how each word reveals the love of the Father to us
…and how we would enter into HIS secret chambers
V. 1 -5 speaks about how sweet and lovely God is, HE is desirable by all
Those who are not chasing after HIM haven’t seen HIM yet because when they do, they would run after HIM
…so far, I haven’t heard of anyone who saw HIM who didn’t worship HIM
V. 6 -7 speaks of a vine we all have to keep
We all have one to keep but sometimes we may be too occupied by keeping other people’s vineyard for them that we ignore our own vineyards.
You can’t be busy serving in church and forget your fellowship with God, the one who you are supposed to be working with.
We know that we have been drafted into the One True Vine
Keeping this vineyard spoken of is keeping this relationship or growing into the place where we are one with God, we in HIM and HE in us
Don’t even let ministry take away that from you, where you are helping keep other vineyards and leaving your own
Do not be as the one who veils herself (one concealing his/her identity like a prostitute would) because our identity is that we are children of God
…we won’t be able to walk in the supernatural because of what other things we are enveloped in
V. 8 to 11
We are indeed the most beautiful of HIS creation because we are as HE is
We are told that if we do not even know how to walk with God, we should follow the tracks of the flock
…these are men alike, who have gone before us… They have walked this same walk ahead of us
We have many of them, right from the apostles, to the fathers of faith, the generals, the missionaries who came to Africa to our current leaders or fathers with us today
..that’s how we can find the Shepherd’s tent ⛺
V. 12 -14
Scripture says that our worship and praises reaches onto HIM like a sweet scented incense
Before that, know that the Shepherd’s tent is like HIS private quarters, only those with love affair with HIM enter there
Yeah, so we have a fragrance too
Let’s read 2 Corinthians 2 :14
Myrrh is very sweet scented
It’s used to preserve the dead, so they don’t smell, imagine how sweet scented it can be
Next verse says fragrance
…and henna blossoms are flowers used to make perfumes, also very well scented ☺
Here, the one in question has entered the bed chambers because she said he’ll spend the night ..
Then the rest of the verses she furthermore worships and praises her Love
There’s a scripture that says ‘the Lord adorns HIS bride…’, it’s just coming to mind
You can check what it says after
So this is the little I learn from the first Chapter.
God bless you! Kindly follow this blog, like this article and share to bless someone. Thank you.
Hey there! Trust you are doing great.
I’m not going to write this in any particular order, my aim is just to let you know that God is indeed a good good Father.
A lot of people struggle to believe this, they wonder why bad things happen to some good people and why some bad people seem to have a lot of good things coming their way.
Whenever you feel good things pass you by, just know that our Father in Heaven is a good good Father.
God is a good good Father!!!
He chose you and never gets fed up of you. How to know this is seeing that every day, God gives you life to live again.
God is a good good Father!!!
We thirst O Lord
We enter the King’s winepress [Gen 14:18]
Fill us with YOUR wine Lord
Brewed in the courts of our God,
upon the altar of the Lamb [Mark 14:23-25]
We want to be drunk in Love
We want to be moved to and fro
according to YOUR ways and plans for us
as drunkards influenced by YOUR Spirit
After drinking, we will ask for more
Because we are aware
YOUR dregs and barrels are never empty
In YOUR presence,
we won’t run out of wine
Take away our conscience
and grant us YOUR boldness
Let our hearts merry at YOUR table
because we look into eternity
We give YOU our intellect and control,
take control of our whole being
Increase our capacity and serve us more wine
That we’ll see the unseen
…we’ll speak mysteries
…we’ll hear the Spirit
…and dance to Heavenly Sounds
Give us wine Jesus
YOUR wine quenches the thirst of our souls
and leaves us longing for more
We heard YOUR wine calling
so we run into YOUR house
Fill our cups!
We’ll tell others about YOU
for YOUR wine is free [Isa 55:1]
We have only come because YOU called [Pro 9:2-5]
The taste of every cup
is sweeter than the former,
yet we still remember the taste of the very first
because nothing tastes like YOU [Jo 3:18]
Give us of the aged and new, [Isa 25:6]
not as the world offers,
for when we are full,
the world wouldn’t mean anything to us anymore
May we be drenched in the dew
Then we will dance eternally before YOUR Grace
Take us to YOUR fountain,
we have a huge appetite
See wine dripping from YOUR mountain [Amos 9:13]
In the valleys, we shall drink from YOUR river among the Lilies
Fill us Lord, we are not full yet
We want more Father
Till men lose trace of our steps,
we would continue to drink YOU
Raise men to join us drink, YOUR wine abounds
We would be many
who would be drunk in Love with YOU Lord
..so they wouldn’t have to drink YOUR wrath, [Ps 75:8]
O we drink!
YOUR wine is sweeter!!!
Our visions increases,
Our love grows,
Our sounds shakes the earth,
Our fragrance brings others,
Our savour offends and turns away the wicked,
We are mad in love with YOU
Inflame us, sweet wine
Tune us with YOUR Spirit,
we are YOUR Voice
We are flooding into YOUR house of wine
We are asking for more wine
Serve us Abba!!!

At midnight, as I lay to sleep, I couldn’t find sleep… these words flooded my heart so I found myself a pencil and a book and I began to write.
Here are some more scriptures I searched after writing, enjoy!!!
Then Melchizedek, King of Salem, brought out bread and wine; He was a priest to God Most High.
Genesis 14:18 HCSB
Your eyes will see strange things, and you will say absurd things. You’ll be like someone sleeping out at sea or lying down on the top of a ship’s mast. “They struck me, but I feel no pain! They beat me, but I didn’t know it! When will I wake up? I’ll look for another drink.”
Proverbs 23:33-35 HCSB
For these people are not drunk, as you suppose, since it’s only nine in the morning. On the contrary, this is what was spoken through the prophet Joel: And it will be in the last days, says God, that I will pour out My Spirit on all humanity; then your sons and your daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, and your old men will dream dreams. I will even pour out My Spirit on My male and female slaves in those days, and they will prophesy. I will display wonders in the heaven above and signs on the earth below: blood and fire and a cloud of smoke. The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the great and remarkable Day of the Lord comes. Then everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.
Acts 2:15-21 HCSB
And don’t get drunk with wine, which leads to reckless actions, but be filled by the Spirit: speaking to one another in psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, singing and making music from your heart to the Lord, giving thanks always for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, submitting to one another in the fear of Christ.
Ephesians 5:18-21 HCSB
I trust that you’ve been blessed
