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.

Who Are You? (Part One)

It doesn't take much to understand that one of the major challenges of this age is Identity Crises. It's saddening yet true that many don't know who they really are. Imitation and deception characterizes the lives of many in our world today.

Some of us don't know who or what we are. Worst still,  some live the lives others and society have crafted for them. However,  we should understand that the only person we can really become is our true "self" because 'everyone else is taken'
A story was told of a young journalist who was posing to travelers going through Kennedy Airport (USA) this question "What do you consider to be the most disgusting thing in the world?”. There were many answers, all reflecting the devastating conditions of the world climate. Yet, when he saw a young Zen Monk in complete Buddhist dress, the journalist knew this would be a different viewpoint. With eagerness, he awaited the monk’s answer to the question. The monk answere…

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.

Consistency and Discipline: An Athlete's Story

After some quality time of diligent study and close observation of successful people, I've discovered that one of the principal ingredients of success is Consistency that comes from Discipline. Consistency and Discipline are some of the "common denominators" of success. In essence, you'll hardly find a truly successful person who's not Consistent in one or a few undertakings. Consistency comes when self-discipline is practiced in any area of life.
Elbert Hubbard defined self discipline as "The ability to  make yourself do what you should do,  when you should do it, whether you feel like it  or not". It means subjecting yourself to necessities required to achieve your goals. Consistency is however marked by regularity and steady continuity. It means the ability to continue doing the right things that grows you. Truth is, very few people possess this great qualities. Moreover, the good news is that they are skills anyone can learn irrespective of their b…
