When a man becomes ‘born again’ [see John 3:3), this newfound faith affects all aspects of his life. There is a transformation emanating from the word of God [which now dwells in you.] See   1 Peter 1:23  Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever. [ Romans 12:2  And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what  is  that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.] There is a spiritual translation of his life to the extent that he now belongs to a new family. The book of Peter puts it this way: ‘ 1 Peter 2:9  But ye  are  a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should show forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light: Our way of thinking is renewed, they shape our perspective through the scriptural lens. Our desires are tailored to what the Lord wants from us as


  John 3:2-6  The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him. Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born? Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee , Except a man be born of water and  of  the Spirit , he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit”. WATER : Show outward signs of repentance via baptism Baptism  Romans 6:3-5  Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so


  What is forgiveness? to answer this question we must go to the bible for the very act of forgiveness is a divine one, therfore, we sholud have our defintion from the word of God. Read with me   Psalms 145:8-9,  The LORD   is   gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy. The LORD   is   good to all: and his tender mercies   are   over all his works. This is where we must start. The very one to whom all owns forgivenss is God. Why so? This is because God as our maker, deserves worship and adoration, indeed obedience. But we departed from him due to the freedom he also gvae us. see   Isaiah 53:6-7,  All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth. Here we see God’s action. First the sin and secondly t


 Firstly, what is salvation? It has to do with the acceptance of the message, sum and sunstance christianity is about. let us read this; Acts 4:12, Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. John 3:16-17, 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. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. Luke 19:10 ,For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost. Romans 6:23, For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.In a nutshell the above scriptural verses tells us what we need do and why Christ, our lord and saviour, came to this earth. when we receive this message and accept christ into our life, we are saved and have salvation.[ Revelation 3:20, Behold, I stand at the door,


  Welcome to the month of October. We are here despite it all. What faith can do, no powers of hell can oppose. We did not consult a seer like the biblical Saul. Neither did we seek a fortune teller, but see what faith in God can do! Philippians 1:6  Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform  it  until the day of Jesus Christ: Perfection is being in a state of flawlessness in our day-to-day usage. But the christians, drawing strength always from the word of God, have found this word to be more than a state of perfection; We look with elation and boldness in the word of apostle paul in the above scriptures. Here, Paul uses the word not in relation to the delft hands that fashions weapons or fashion sculptures, but in the doing, guidance and leading of the lord. How we may go through circumstances, situation. When through it all friends and close ones abandon us, where some of us go through a deadly situation with messengers of death ope


  Let me say from the onset that while we are still on the subkect of prayers, it should not be use as a weapon to kill our perceived enemeis nor, more importantly, sen as a ‘magic wand’ that gives us all we asked of the father. Now to the reason on why God answers all prayers, [prayers that have met all criteria]   Psalms 14:2-4 says,  The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand,   and   seek God. They are all gone aside, they are   all   together become filthy:   there is   none that doeth good, no, not one. Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people   as   they eat bread, and call not upon the LORD.engaging spiritual means to slay others is forbidden by God. In this psalm, they literally takes pleasure in killing others like one would take pleasure ineating food. Many prayers, today, are called serious prayers because they involved killing others percieved as enemies of progress or thier children’s


  For the past few weeks, we have been on the subject of prayers, an important aspect of the believer. God hears all we say, just like man-made bug can transmit conversations in your bedroom, to an eavesdropper, thousands of miles away, just like a mobile phone can send your voice to somebody in another continent. God no doubt, due to omnipotence and omnipresence abilities can hear all. The real question is does he answer all? As bitter as this may seem the answer is No. God may answer some specific prayers to show you he is real and in an attempt to led you to him [Remember God loves all and God is love] but, claiming the prayers for your relative who was sick made him well can be disputed because others who are no christian also get well. Real and prayers that God answers are these: one, you are washed in the blood of the lamb- you are memebr of the community of faith, called royal priesthood, see   1 Peter 2:9,  But ye   are   a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation,
