God's Witness To The Gospel


Good morning precious saint of God. It brings me great joy to forward this message from my desk to you.

Hebrews 2:3-4
How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him;

 4  God also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will

There's a response from God Almighty to the preaching of the gospel.

To start with, what is the gospel? To answer that,

1 Corinthians 15:1-5
Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you THE GOSPEL which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;

 2  By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.

 3  For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ DIED for our sins according to the scriptures;

 4  And that he was BURIED, and that HE ROSE again the third day according to the scriptures:

 5  And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve:

Follow carefully, I'll paraphrase Paul's mystery of the gospel, the gospel is that Jesus Christ died, He was buried, He resurrected and He was seen, visibly.

He died for the sins of the world, He was buried, so that sins be taken away for ever, He resurrected so the one who was a sinner afore time could become a new righteous creation, He was seen, typifying the glorious life after death of the mortal body.

Now, to the crux of my message, whenever this message of the unchanging gospel is preached, the witness of Almighty God is with signs, and wonders and miracles and diverse manifestations of the Spirit.

Dear Believer and minister, just preach the simple message of the gospel, with or without your permission or jigging the miraculous would invade that atmosphere. Listen to Paul, he said: "I am not ashamed of the GOSPEL OF CHRIST for it is the POWER of God unto salvation to EVERYONE that believes..."

Jehovah's Witness to the gospel is to make Jesus seen as revealed in the Word, this is much more than He was when He walked in Israel, doing miracles and demonstrating the goodness of God.

If He is the same yesterday and today and forever, and of course He is, then miracles are still in vogue today.

God bless you.
You are supernaturally helped.

Your Man in Christ,
Pastor Kenney Erimakonosine.

HUSTLER OR ENTREPRENEUR?

Earlier today, I asked friends on my Whatsapp time-line the difference between a Hustler and an Entrepreneur. Of course, there was a plethora of answers as different people gave very distinct meanings in response. What surprised me the most was that no two people gave the same answer. Everyone had a distinct point of view.
However, for the sake of clarity and simplicity I decided to curate most of the responses as well as my personal observations into an article.
First and foremost, a Hustler is someone who "make strenuous efforts to obtain" money or profit from different areas or businesses engagements. An entrepreneur however is one who starts a business (or businesses), manages it to produce tangible value and make profit from it. 
You see, it's easy to assume there's not much difference between the two personalities but there are. 
While Kemi, a LASU Undergraduate perceives the difference in the freedom an Entrepreneur enjoys compared to a Hustler, Success, a Bl…

Personal Growth 101

The first time many of us heard the word 'growth' was most likely in basic school where it was described as one of the characteristics of living things. Thereafter, it seemed the word almost disappeared from our vocabularies. 
What is growth anyway? Growth is simply the process you go through to become your true and best self. It is the season between birth and fulfilment. This short piece, of course, can't explain everything about growth but it'll suffice to give you a head-start and set you on the never-ending  journey of personal growth. 
First, we need to understand that life is really all about growth. A man once said "Development of character is the main business of life". How true! The essence of our existence is that we keep growing into our true and best selves.  
It is also important that we realize that growth is intentional. Wee don't grow by simply living, by accident or chance. Growth is intentional. Some erroneously believe we grow automat…

Sharpen your Axe: How Personal Development Can Simplify Your Life

"If I had six hour to chop down a tree, I'd spend the first four hours sharpening the axe." - Abraham Lincoln
An axe is a cutting tool that consists of a heavy edged head fixed to a handle with with the edge parallel to the handle that is used especially for felling trees and chopping wood (Merriam Webster Dictionary). The axe is considered one of the most effective traditional tools for cutting trees. To effectively carry out this duty for which it is made, the edge of the axe must be well sharpened so it could cut through the wood with ease. 
In this context, your axe is the potential, gifts, talents and resources available to you as an individual. Your axe is the tool available to you to solve any problem. This could be your degrees, talents, inherent potential, knowledge or any other thing at your disposal. 
"If the ax is dull,  And one does not sharpen the edge, Then he must use more strength;  But wisdom brings success" - Ecclesiastes 10:10 An axe, when it…
