'FIERY TRIAL'

"Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you" - 1 Peter 4:12
.
There's a difference between fiery trial and the problem caused by the enemy.
.
Fiery trial is to test a man while the problem caused by the enemy is to steal, kill or destroy. God tested Job, although he never knew God was behind the scene. However, it was the enemy that altered a woman's posture for 18 years through infirmity (Luke 13:10-13).
.
Fiery trial is aimed at humbling a person, also done to test them and to do them good at the latter end (Deut. 8:16) but the problem caused by the enemy has no good than to completely destroy.
.
God is usually the brain behind fiery trial while the devil masterminds problems, affliction, infirmity and the likes.
.
Oftentimes, we usually think something strange is happening to us when we pass through some fiery trial in life because we do not know the cause.
.
God uses fiery trial to shapen a man or use it to mould him to His will. More so, He may allow the enemy to make us go through some painful ordeals in life but at the end, He will overturn their plan. This happened in the cause of Joseph and his brothers (Gen. 45).
.
Not all delay is caused by the enemy, it could be God's handwriting to rewrite a new and better chapter in your life.
.
And because we don't understand God's dealing in our lives, we often think all trials are caused by the enemy. Instead of us to ask Him in prayers (Gen. 25:22), we react to find means of getting out of it.
.
Can you prayerfully find out the cause of your problem? Please do!

'WHAT WILL HE SEE?'

"While they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear" - 1 Peter 3:2
.
One of the major things that captures the attention of men in women is their outward appearance. And women gives attention to three things: the outward adornment of plaiting of hair, putting on of apparel and the wearing of gold.
.
It is good to care for the outward appearance but much attention should be focused on your chaste conversation (conduct) coupled with respect. 
.
How a woman looks may capture a man's attention but what keeps a man attracted to a woman is her character. 
.
A woman's outward appearance may be affected. The hair can be damaged, jewelry can be stolen, clothes may be tampered with but a godly character she possess can't be affected. 
.
What makes up a godly character? How can a woman learn respect? 
.
Character is a notable trait that makes up a person which defines his or her deed and reaction to certain issues of life. However, a godly character is a God-like traits manifesting in a person's life which defines their deeds and reaction to the issues of life. 
.
Jesus is the model of God's character. You 

can't manifest a godly character if Jesus is not in you. It is easy to highlight the traits that makes up a godly character but to express it, you need to be born again, filled with the Holy Spirit and have the fruits of the Spirit manifesting in you. 
.
When a man is attracted to your godly character coupled with your fear (respect), you'll discover that no outward appearance from any source will catch his fancy. If a strange woman will lure a man into sin, she achieves that through her character (cunning).
.
It's only the Holy Spirit that can enable you to express godly character, whether you're a man or woman.

Who did this to us?

To pursue other things and neglect the pursuit of His kingdom and righteousness...
.
To pursue dating relationship that destroys our intimate relationship with Him...
.
To be so carnally minded than to walk in the spirit...
.
To think He knows us by going to church, bearing Christian names without being transformed to His image and to have an assurance that our names have been written in the Book of Life...
.
To care so much about how we look on the outside without caring for our inner man...
.
To place so much value on vanities than to know our placement in eternity...
.
To please men than to please God...
.
To feel God's time would take forever when we can get things done according to our own time...
.
To think we can do it all by ourselves without our Creator, perhaps we can but how far can we go? What about our fate in eternity?
.
To seek to pursue our own ambition without knowing His purpose for our life...
.
To think marriage has an exit door when the heat becomes too hot to cope with...
.
To trust in our education, exposure, experience without our total trust in Him. Because He gave us a brain doesn't mean we should kick Him out of the affairs our life. Our brain cannot take the place of our Maker...
.
To labor so much for earthly benefits without preparing for our eternal life...
.
To keep so much of our treasures here on earth without seeking to know the state of our treasures in heaven...
.
Anyone that did this to you is set to destroy you beyond your existence here. Those things that are highly esteemed among men is an abomination to God.

'WATCH TO PRAYER'

"Watch you therefore and pray always, that you may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man" - Luke 21:36
.
One of the ways of becoming eligible for the coming of the Lord is to pray. It is only through prayer that you can escape the consequences of the perilous times.
.
You'll discover that the signs outlined in Luke 21:8-5 and 2 Timothy 3:2-5 is finding expression in the life of many people. The love for God of many are waxing cold and many people now love pleasure than God. 
.
Only those who pray always would appear before the Son of man. What kind of prayers do you pray? And how often do you pray to become eligible? 
.
It is good to be holy and righteous but these two cannot take the place of prayer. Many people pray for blessing, against their enemies and for breakthrough but failed to pray to become eligible for His coming.
.
You can't escape all the signs of the last days if you do not pray to God for help. Prayer will become a burden if you haven't been strengthened to delight in it. 
.
Prayer fortifies your soul against the cares of life, the deceitfulness of riches and the pleasures of life. Prayer helps you to overcome temptation which the devil can hurl at you anytime anywhere. 
.
Watch and pray. Watch through the pages of the scripture and through your understanding of times and seasons. 
.
Endeavor to create a balance in your word and your prayer life so that you won't be a victim in this perilous time.

'BE SOBER'

"But the end of all things is at hand: be you therefore sober, and watch to prayer" - 1 Peter 4:7 (NKJV)
.
Those who understood the handwriting on the wall concerning the state of the world will know that the end of all things is at hand. Apostle Paul called it, "The perilous time" (2 Tim. 3:1).
.
Men and women are lovers of themselves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, truce breakers, false accusers and so on (2 Tim. 3:2-5). There are inventors of evil things (sex dolls and the likes) and the love for God of many are waxing cold (Matt. 24:10-12).
.
How can I escape these things or prepare myself for the end of all things? Be sober!
.
To be sober means to be serious, sensible and solemn; not affected by alcohol. Alcohol is a type of worldly pleasure and passion. Although a genuine child of God must not be given to alcohol (Prov. 23:29-35).
.
Brethren, this is the time to become more serious with your life and eternity. This is the time to choose whom to serve like Joshua told the Israelites (Josh. 24:15). This is the time for you to define your pursuit - God's kingdom and His righteousness or the 'other things' that should be added unto you (Matt. 6:33).
.
You do not prepare for eternity in eternity; you prepare here on earth by accepting Jesus and to live for Him alone. Make the deliberate decision to live for Jesus even if everyone is living for the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eye and the pride of life.
.
Are you sober or living a life given to excess wine (worldliness)? Remember, the end of all things is at hand.

Respond to CHANGE and step forward!

Good day:

Family, friends & fans across the world.

Happy New Year!

I'm glad we all made it to 2018 and to all that we lost in 2017 I beseech that you will step forward and move on!

I'm here to keep you abreast of more information about my book "Making the CHANGE Evident". The main fact about the book is to encourage you not to settle for less, not to be average, not to be the same, not to allow this world to put you in a box and summarize your life and so on.

The book is a 123 page that contains powerful insights that God revealed to me in 2010 as I was trying to find a balance between the vicissitudes of life and the very call of God on my life as a messenger of CHANGE. During this time, I decided to write my first book which is available on both Amazon (Ebook & Paper) and Google Play Books (Ebook only).

My point is:

What are you waiting for? If you are tired of where you are: #Respond:#StepForward
