In Galatians 5:22-24, ‘the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.’  These qualities are like orchard as they constitute evident sign of  growth, fruitfulness  multiplication and maturity in faith. God’s first fruit greatest quality love is His only Son Christ sent to save and restore us to God.

Bowl of fruits

Christ is First Fruit given as sacrificial offering first harvest from God’s agricultural produce of harvest of souls. Greater love has no man than Christ Who gave His life as ransom for many by unconditional love. So believers are to bear Christlike spiritual love fruits to impact the kingdom of God.

  

An understanding of Godly love is important because the Holy Spirit helps us to love supernaturally as God’s ultimate expression of love is Christ Jesus. Love is used to depict emotional feelings which change with the time. Godly love is manifested through the gift of the fruit of the Holy Spirit. Fruits are grown, mature, ripe, firmly, has many colourful and desirable tastes appealing to be eaten, so does Godly Love attract people to God’s kingdom. 

       

The Bible is written to all the world by God as an incredible love letter that makes us thankful to God. As God loved us so believers love God and give first fruits as the duty and responsibility of a true disciple and loving one another. Agape love is affection for self,  based on God’s command to love and care first, for one self in a healthy way.

  

Godly joy shows through affection with clear boundaries for other more focused and passionate about life.  We develop a compassion in the heart for holiness which permeates things and people. We are joyfully involved in loyal commitments so able to marshal, direct our life wisely for good through Christ crucified.

Patience is the state of endurance under difficult circumstances, which can mean persevering in the face of delay or provocation without acting on annoyance in a negative way or exhibiting anger. Those who belong to Christ have joy connected to Godly love  joy of the Lord our strength. So walk in perfect peace of God passing human understanding.

  

Kindness is behaviour marked by ethical characteristics, a pleasant disposition, and concern for others. It is known as a virtue and recognized as a value in Christianity. Kindness is generosity in spirit showing consideration for others to help make life easier or bearable. It includes resources and and time set aside on behalf of other in Jesus Name.

Such kindness is excellence quality of goodness of workmanship to strengthen others with integrity, honesty, uprightness, probity.  Goodness, morality, virtue refer to qualities of character, conduct so entitles possessor to approval esteem. Goodness isthe simple word for general quality recognized in acceptable behaviour.

Goodness is morality implies conformity to recognized standards of right conduct a citizen of the highest morality.  Virtue means goodness consciously or steadily maintained in spite of temptations. So overcomes other influences of unassailable virtue to remain firm and have an unwavering virtue, benevolence, benignity, humanity, worth and value.

Faithfulness is a strict or thorough in the performance of duty by a faithful worker true to one’s word, promises, vows, etc. and steady in allegiance or affection; constant loyalty. God is so faithful to us so sent Christ Jesus to restore us to Himself. Christian believers walk in faithfulness and loyalty to God.

The power of the  Holy Spirits help and so teaches us to be gentle. Gentleness is not wellness but wisdom and strength of self -control. 

Selfcontrol is the ability to control one’s emotions, feelings, behaviour, desire, choices, actions, decisions in order to obtain some reward, or avoid consequences by pleasing God and finding Favour with God and people. The right thing is done by faith, grace and  mercy of God through Christ who strengthens us to bear good fruits in Jesus Name.

JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR


Jesus Christ is the Greatest Super Star in history. Christ is reliable, dependable, trustworthy. God wins souls with wisdom through Christ. So the eternal plan of salvation is dictated from heaven by God’s infallible judgment. God reveals in every line of creation His infinite skill apparent. It is not child’s play achieved if half asleep. Attempt is by deep consideration carried on with gracious help from wise God. Jesus Christ Himself is the morning star in Revelation 22:16 who saves from the darkness of sin. The approaching dawn means he will return, so God’s stars are encouraged to arise and shine.

For God’s Glory long nights of challenges mean sunshine’s brilliance dispels darkness.The Almighty God created the heavens, firmament, galaxies, ordained stars in Psalm 8:3. In Daniel 12:3,”Those who are wise will shine like brightness of heavens. Those who lead many to righteousness are stars forever and ever. God calls soul winners wise stars, as God’s wisdom is seen in the new creation of a saved soul, magnificent as the ancient Creation of the world. God is the Greatest Scientist, Chemist, Physicist, Astronomer, Biologist, Artist, Creator, Maker of all the fascinating, intrinsically phenomenal universe as God’s absolute Masterpiece.

jesus-christ????????????????????????????????

God says those who win souls are wise  stars because to accomplish such a work, a believer must be wise to win souls. This requires infinite wisdom like it takes to reach the skies and fly to the moon and stars. It is a work which filled the Saviour’s heart and moved the mind of Jehovah for ever as earth was created. It is a work which filled the Saviour’s heart and moved the mind of Jehovah for ever as earth was created. God’s Glory is displayed in the marvelous beauty of the universe rising out of nothing.  The universe rising out of nothing is like believers who work with God proceeding side by side to do great work of soul-winning wise, too to restore lives. image_thumb4The Bible begins with the creation of the universe stating, In the beginning God created heavens and earth in Genesis 1:1. When God created man with joy He Spoke so it cost nothing. God is perfect so original creation was perfect in Genesis 1:31 as God called mankind very good. God’s Good nature was imbibed through God’s Spirit in people so remains intact though tainted by sin. Though originally God called mankind and all creation as very good and perfect si destroyed mankind’s relationship with God. So mankind became tainted through sin. Therefore God sent Jesus Christ, the Second Adam to come and restore all to God. Sin caused spiritual death and material loss of the garden of Eden. In a sinner saved is much of God’s Glory. Like a piece of coal, God’s process removes dross of sin to create diamond to shine so does gold diggers remove and wash dirt to reveal best carat gold. 

Jesus’ blood washes clean to restore people to God. Creation cost nothing but cost God everything to save one lost soul through sacrifice of Christ. Heaven rejoices and the angels sing and dance, when a soul is saved. God’s most priceless, precious, asset, valued above all creatures and billions of angels in heaven, His Saved Children. Salvation is the greatest miracle which transform a person from death to eternal life to live forever in infinity. Jesus gave His Life to Save People as dedicated health stars do here.God’s most priceless, precious, asset valued above all other creatures and the billions of angels in heaven is His Saved Children. Salvation is the greatest miracle which transform a person from judgment, condemnation, death, hell into eternal heavenly star lifestyle life with God.

God’s greatest desire is to prevent people from going to hell because it was made for only the devil. Every born again believer must empty hell and fill heaven with souls as duty responsibility, commitment of great commission, to share amazing truth with all earth to enjoy privilege of salvation in Christ. People are called stars for helping to save souls as God and Christ did. God is impressed with His creation though disconnected so wants to restore diminished relationship to God’s original perfect image.  Although Adam and Eve paid the price of consequence of sin, it God Who Restores privileged luxury life wealth transfer. God’s Goodness and Mercy endures forever in preserving lives. Christ our bright and morning star, the victory of light over darkness, and others in the New Testament. 

You Deserve It Gold Trophy Reward Recognition

“St. Cyprian spoke of Christ the true sun constant like the northern star and faithful to all who trust Jesus. So the believer seeks the face of God in prayer, fasting, holiness and righteousness to please God and live Holy.King David is highly honoured because of His love and worship of God, poems, music in humility. The Star of David is the primary modern emblem of the Jewish religion some think is was an emblem used by the Biblical King David (hence the name Magen David, or “shield of David”). The Star of David is important in the Messianic Christian faith from generation to generation and city of David is named after him. David is a classic example of a believer who fell short of the Glory of God many times but humbled himself, repented and asked God’s mercy, forgiveness and compassion.

biblianazar60_0714pointstarDSCF7609

God heard and answered his prayer by sending Christ through David’s family tree to save mankind. God forgives those who ask for His forgiveness, restores and re-establishes them. Glory of God is restored spiritually for God made provision through Christ so sin is cleansed through repentance by washing by God’s word and blood of Christ. Godly life is recovered through Christ’s salvation to elevate soul winners as God’s stars for ever. Christ was born as God’s Morning Star Saviour, believers who saved are called God’s stars. The pursuit is wise although not easy because to saves souls is priceless beyond material treasures. Christ, God’s great Soul-Winner, is “the wisdom of God” as well as “the power of God.” Jeweler use intricate details to create star coins, trinkets, menorah so God Saves.

Sadly war memorial commemoration stars represent remembrance of tragic loss of those who died in battle. The star is a double-sided badge honour for God’s soul winners for highest distinguished service of eternal life. It  reminds all to remember millions who died. The  star is in forms of food shapes, prints, fabrics, found in nature in plants and vegetables. so because Jesus Lives We can face tomorrow. Because Jesus Lives all fear is gone, because I know He holds the future our lives are worth the living just because Jesus lives as our lives are hidden in Christ Jesus with God.

We confidently know God so our life is hidden in Christ the Superstar. As the fishers of mankind believers challenged to win souls and sponsor those winning souls to help make the stars of God. Enthusiastic, actively motivated school children seek reward, God said believers must be like little children passionate about spreading the Gospel Gossip to win souls to please God. So for those conversation starters and ice breakers of star signs, tell people God forbids His people from reading stars as already Stars of God who know their future is secured in Christ. Through it all we learn to trust in God to depend on words of the Lord no matter situations. God’s stars forever have names written in the Lamb’s Book of life through Christ Jesus our Saviour and Lord.stock-vector-rastafari-star-of-david-splash-143155489

In Isaiah 47:13, God warns Christian believers not to seek psychic stars or palm reading, enchantments or divination from idol source. So then let your astrologers come forward, those star-gazer who make predictions each day and month. Let them take their stand as the ones who see omens in the sky, who gaze at stars as star-gazer and those who look to them according to their desire. 14 So they are like stubble, Fire burns them; They cannot be saved. So put your trust and confidence in God Who knows your future plans and thoughts before you were formed in the womb. God will give you a great future with hope as faithful stars winning and sponsoring souls in God’s Kingdom.

Jesus has unconditional love so gave His life to save and protect believers like chicks safe under mother’s wings. Easter celebrations portray chicken, chicks and eggs as part of the message of resurrection of Christ. Jesus’ heart cry is to save adults and children He Loves dearly and died for. Adults and chicks today need extra attention with from Christ and God’s Help for Protection to grow wisely and live properly. As long as believers obey and remain under God’s authority within the range of Mother Hen’s fold, they are safely protected by Christ who defends and fends off all enemies trying to snatch them from God’s Kingdom. Despite what life throws at us Jesus keeps us all safely wrapped under His warmth and Loving arms to preserve and protect us like Mother Hen does her chicks. Jesus uses everyday happenings to tell parables and stories to help people get a visual image of His messages for better understanding, like the key point of Jesus’ death and resurrection to draw all under His wings.

As part of life, one experiences unexpected life altering changes that keeps one wondering how on earth one will survive after a traumatic event. As life unfolds, things happen, some become overwhelmed and wonder if life is worth living anymore. Others lose hope completely, due to sudden changes of unforeseen circumstances. Some become angry with themselves and blame others for not helping to guide or prevent them from making wrong choices. By putting all eggs in one basket, they fully assured themselves they are in charge until something happens beyond their control. Without back up plan B when that basket falls the eggs break beyond use, although absolutely certain during the preparation process and it seemed right during decision-making process, it was not possible to fully understand implications of choices until that basket fell and the eggs splattered beyond scooping. Similarly Christ shows us we must only put our confidence in God to protect us from situations trying to cause premature breaking and losing precious of life eggs human basket of life sometimes due to circumstances beyond control.

An elderly grandmother testified about her teenangel who visited her every weekend, cleaned, dusted and hovered for her. He helped her wash clothes and ironed them, brought her presents from his pocket money while in College studying. However others grow and join conditioned groups of youth, aimlessly playing games, watching TV all day long or forced to attend unrealistic data enhancing, bonus paying scheme benefiting the rich at their expense as guinea pigs. The adults who created such Frankenstein, Teensteins and Teenzillars do not realize they contributed to it. By deliberately keeping them positively engaged without practical life skills, it results in mind-sets not to receive instruction with humility. Not allowing parents to train them from childhood means some grow up thinking they dared not be corrected for the right reasons because it was inbuilt so discourages active participation. Some generations were raised, without basic standard, acceptable parental discipline, due to state interference. Children fully recognize weakness in scapegoating parents so play system, schools by constantly reporting parents even for disciplining them appropriately. Toddlers and young children are removed without support for struggling families  helping their children, to change lifestyle to study and work harder to improve their lot in life with God’s help.

Just as one size does not fit all, chicks have different personalities from introvert, ambovert and extrovert  so mother chick has to adapt to each chick’s needs like Christ meets our needs. Parents wait and hope for the bestall will turn out well after hatching to find out variety of gender needs required to support their chicks. The organic farmer entrusts free range mother hen, confidence,  ability to keep chicks safe, well fed and return on time despite birds of prey circulating all day around them while feeding unsupervised.  Yet human parents are constantly scrutinized and blamed without appropriate empathetic support for the excellent work they do. The state makes some children or youth untouchables allowed to do own thing with post codes rules. However, when it goes wrong, parents are held accountable for youth actions, though denied the necessary foundation of handling and disciplining, which plays a major part in the adults they become. Like mechanized poultry farming, families are compelled against their will to let their children be brainwashed by anti-Christ values. It seems they want them to fester so not be an obstacle force contending and competing against the chosen privileged few. Often parents of a rebellious child are hounded, hunted, punished yet child goes Scot free out of control so Jesus said bring children like chicks to save and protect.

Christ keeps us hidden in Him with God so our strength is from God. However, some have no choice but to face the music and dance to the tune of chosen music or lie in their  made bed. Christ comes in to protect and deliver those expecting and may be  force to changes to combine school, work and parenthood or drop out because something has to give. When the rubber hits the road support systems available makes or breaks motherhood especially for youth. The impression created to let youth to enjoy innocence, freely explore, be curious, inquire about life, make mistakes in own way is not right. They are encouraged to focus on external, outward outlook on physical appearance, so materialism takes over, without substance and realistic long – term planning for the future of youth. The media, games, education, fashion, attract and boast ego of what is in it for me mentality so some think indulgence means growing up or certain lifestyles make considered matured. However, it cost emotionally, physically, spiritually and unbearable for the youth and families involved in picking up the pieces. Parents are made to feel they have no right to discipline or correct innocent with certain behaviours that need to be nipped in the bud. Some parents in denial wrap the majesty the child in cotton wool to fester as teenstein so no one dare advise their precious child to behave well while other families sacrifice to keep supporting children to fairly consider others.

Believers need to realize the eggs of life must be handled gently and carefully within right environment temperature for the right chicks desired. At times incubators or surrogates nurture to produce young ones due to unavailability of Mother Hen for chicks want to be cared for with loving tender care as they cannot take look after themselves. So children’s lack of development of brain cortex makes it hard to fully grasp risk, consequences of wandering away from safe protection of  Mother Hen as believers need Christ. Chicks  roam freely until they hear the sound of Mother Hen calling to run to safety from preys. So believers hear the voice of God, run, hide, abide, in the dwelling place of the Most High God’s Secret Place in Psalm 91 from danger. Though some explore options of experiences from own frame of mind to act in a certain way before reality sets in to understand and accept what matured people know. Ignorant chicks roams  freely until something happens then they run to Mother Hen to be nursed back to health. Similarly, the believer’s shock from pain can be unbearable, some lose appetite for food, anorexic or comfort eat to develop weight problems. In some cases chicks like adults and children withdraw from fun age appropriate activities that they were once passionate about so need other’s input, support and help. Like mother hen does and becomes committed to seating on the eggs until hatched so is Christ committed to believers for spiritual delivery.

Some are bored without pragmatic knowledge relevant to history and culture so often see no point in wasting time to be educated. After all, the brainiest admired are poorer after university education, unemployed despite filling thousands of applications, numerous interviews, bonus enhancing placements, they owe debts, loans than them. Parents are crucified for daring to discipline their children to study hard to improve their lot in life. They are even persecuted by some teachers and other parents for being firm with their child to do better above average to have good success in life. Such parents are vilified and ostracized for doing the right thing and social services are called because those children are asked to finish the homework before playing games or addicted to social networks. Some children spend all night playing games so go to school tired and sleepless so cannot focus on school work. Others refuse to eat healthy nutritious home – made meals so addicted to junk foods which does not nourish the brain.

Refusing to be led safely, protected due to rebellion, results in opposite effect of ignorance, lack of understanding of loyalty, duty and hard work so must be taught giving back respect. Youth rebellion becomes a force to reckon with at home, always on-line, on the phone, physically present in body but absent in mind and without spatial knowledge and basic survival skills without adult input. Some are taught at a certain age it is okay to indulge in sex and alcohol as long as they consent. However, those who gave them such advise do not live with the consequences of their choices for life. The girls often bear the brunt of the consequences of putting their trust and confidence in fellow youth as they are encouraged to hang around peers than adults. The blind leads the blind based on hormones dictating their profession of love for each other. The naïve youth think just because someone said they loved them they are sincere. After all, their family love is not fantastic like the soap opera happily ever after so they are always looking for affection in the wrong places. There must be a friendly transition from childhood into youth as chicks become hens or cockerels seems full of responsibility and contradictions from society and school to follow their leader.The chick whether a cockerel or hen still needs guidance from God for protection, so it is in their own interest to be trained from youth to grow equipped and prepared to handle life successfully.

The pattern of rebellion cycle is broken when a young person understands who they are from within. This by teaching high self esteem not to repeated reinforced treatment by authorities of not letting parents freely do their job properly. Some give up because they feel it is too much to handle changes to face life under such circumstances and struggles. Yet the good news one can manage to turn life around in victory by the help and support of God, the team through Jesus Christ, helps those wanting  to do right if willing to do so. Social media non-denominational support group welcomes those joining to keep moving in faith. Our current interest among others is to help young people understand, endorsed choices permitted has long-term commitment and responsibility. A few minutes of momentary lust has life time of unexpected time – consuming, financial, psychological, generational consequences because a child is for life. Jesus said, what constitutes a person, is not outside influences, but what comes from within. So indulging the flesh by focusing on external physical body building and shape and size or fashion without own property or educating own child is not the right priority. It is difficult for a child to raise another child to keep them under control by themselves while their parents are already struggling but with God all things are possible.

We focus on the within stuff by exploring practical solutions to help youth interested in building up their lives with the support of families believing in them and helping them to do so. It is not easy but with determination, perseverance, hard work, you will succeed at last if you choose to do so. After all, life has taught youth rebellion brings suffering to them, more than the illusion of happiness they thought they would get by putting their life, trust and confidence in the hands of fellow peers as they were misled to do from childhood. When it all goes wrong how many peers helped and took on the sleepless nights of babysitting and nappy changing with them? The ones who professed to love them most, run away when the going got tough and soon found someone to take advantage of. The greatest need of youth is peace of mind, joy, knowledge of God to fulfill their heart and purpose in life. To learn to honour and respect parents and adults so it will be well with them and they will live long. To deliberately focus on socializing a child with peers more than training them to have family values is the devil’s ultimate plan to divide and ruin families. Children who think they are free to do own thing end up gullible, vulnerable taken advantage of and destroyed by vultures out there looking for naive children to abuse. So become victims of seed of rebellion planted in them childhood by refusing to humble themselves for correction but blame everyone else for their problems.

Some families endures years of  unthankful, ungrateful, youth demanding to eat like elephants and lazy like lions because they believe they are superior above  humble beginnings. They wear the most outrageous expensive clothes, shoes and accessories they cannot afford, yet cannot pay household bills they incur above everyone. Some mess up sleep patterns that cannot keep up with realistic time keeping for normal working hours cannot hold down jobs. Others do not understand boundaries, time for work, leisure, pleasure, weekend rest for chilling out. To them life is one long big continuous party of indulgence for fun so nothing is taken seriously, they talk the talk but do not walk the walk. The expect those who provide for them or employ them to dance to their tune without understanding domino effects of deadlines and working seriously to build strong customer base for reliability success of  company. They seem to think life revolves around their spoilt brat behaviour bubble they live in. Some are even tolerated and entertained by the very people who should teach them to behave acceptably. Often they storm off to parasite off friends and family before long they show their true colours. They cannot keep house, cook or clean properly or on the streets with gang drug dealers yet not allowed in the safety and comfort of own home so overwhelms parents.

While some law makers hire chaperons, nannies, security body guards to look after their own, those children misled to rebel are left to street elements while parents do 3 or more jobs to keep a roof over their children’s heads. Those children therefore do not have servants, butlers yet have audacity to complain they feel neglected by the extremely hard-working parents who look after them and imposed grandchildren. They think they are born to be  indulged, so never want to be responsible to do the right thing. Often, children are flattered to think they are grown ups so falsely made to believe they are mature enough to handle life without adult input. They are the first running home for help from parents when burnt, battered and bruised, yet act like everything is alright so continue pattern of behaviour to repeat the cycle. They never learn from past mistakes so jump right back in where they left off, believing this time round it is different. They entangle themselves with multiple webs of lust relationships in spite of others helping them to change to restore their lives; often threatened by baby mamma who chose own destiny but blame others they are bitter against for their choice consequences. They refuse to listen to sound advice, complain of being judged yet  families deal with raising their children, feeding and taking care of them. Despite pain of heartache, tears, tantrums of ignorance, Jesus loves and accepts such teens kindly and treats them well like mother hen cares for her chicks.

God does not create mistakes for everyone is a perfect blessing from God but parents are often made to feel guilty or held accountable for rebellious teens. They forget when whispering sweet nothings parents had nothing to do with it or knew nothing about it yet innocent children are blamed for showing up unexpectedly and ruining their lives and careers. They are constantly made to feel unwelcome in the world but turn to the law to blackmail baby daddy they accuse of neglect. They refuse to use  protection, forgetting men do not get pregnant so onus is on them to prevent conception. Jesus said in the chicken and chick sermon, the rebellious argumentative do not listen to advise, though invited to do the right thing, refuse but the obedient are defended like mother duck protects young ones.

So chicks are not lured from safe protection like others who think and feel their ideas are always the best above God Himself. Some seduce and cunningly manipulate naïve boys for lust then blame them for issue sorrows but do not know or remember their cycle under influence of alcohol and substance abuse to clearly reflect on own actions. They turn in frustration to child maintenance to punish teens they knew had nothing before their indulged lust. For upkeep they sabotage, blackmail, threaten to make teen’s life miserable for their own  lustful rebellious failures. They do not feel responsible for actions, decisions so turn to blame, bad mouth innocent blood relations for loose moral consequences but Jehovah Jireh cares so forgives and provides like mother hen.

After playing with ordinary plastic dolls for years children think they understand motherhood and childcare by baby sitting for family and friends. So some struggling children are misled by peer pressure to join others teenagers who think having children or indulging in lustful puppy love solves all life’s problems for happiness need help. With permission and support of interested parents, including potential trouble shooting boys and girls from 11 years, electronic plastic baby dolls taken care of to document thoughts, feelings and ideas about life and child care. This will follow-up again from time to time in the future keep to see how changes in development affect youthful thinking and experience. We strongly believe it is important to help millions of children bringing forth children all over the world in credit crunching season, totally unprepared, burdening an already over stretched parents who need break from life time of child raising to enjoy their freedom. Christ can help to strengthen the family to do all things to overcome.

Some may not be available, to take over care of grandchildren for they must extend life time of working years to earn to secure own future. Some see parents as burdens but forget their sacrifices and input to build them up to grow to participate realistically by contributing to duties in the family. In simple task like cleaning, sweeping, removing rubbish, dish washing, wiping surfaces, ensuring the toilet is properly kept hygienically clean at all times for nest user, shopping, washing up, all help to equip, prepare and train child for the future.

To stop and force parents to keep children ignorant and naïve, to have head knowledge without practical life skills is destroying their future. One young man doing apprentice course said he did not know a deep freezer was cold until the boss asked him to pick something for him at work and another blew his face in university trying to boil eggs in a kettle.God Almighty says where people made mistakes by permitting the mighty prey enemy to take them captive, He will contend with them to deliver them and feed their enemies with their own flesh. Every evil hand-writing of ordinances and curses contrary to youth because of the enemy who wants to put them to shame is removed out-of-the-way and nailed to the cross in Jesus Name.

Some Easter festivities are full of technological jargon, games fantasies so at times cocoons from the reality of life in the shell. As a soft tree branch is malleable and easier to bend than a twig which breaks, teens must be trained in the formative years. Asking parents not to train children but to wait until teen years, after molded and influenced by society and set in ways is the cause of teenage rebellion. As a chick has specific number of days to hatch and grow so is right timing essential for training children. As Jesus said, He is calling people like Mother Hen to run under His Safe Wings to hide from birds of prey which dive unnoticed trying to kill them. By running to Safety of Jesus they are protected from evil pursuers chasing them to kill and eat them for a quick meal. However, stubborn and rebellious who refuse to receive Jesus’ help can be captured and destroyed by enemy if drawn away.

No weapons formed ever against youth will prosper neither will satanic divination and enchantments against the believer work in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. The battle for the souls of youth must continue to be fought relentlessly for devils sees their future destiny and wants to destroy them. God is in control so parents like Mother Hen with prayer and  fasting will not toil hard for enemy to take for free by seducing them to use and abuse them in vain for their selfish motives to exploit them for their selfish gratifications of lust. God loves them to be protected and raised according to His Will.

FAMILY

Easter message is enjoy chicken, chocolate eggs but remember Christ who gave His Life to die, to safely protect like chicks under mother hen’s wings. To stop enemy luring to deceive and destroy but never claim responsibility for seduction. No matter what believers face, it is important to trust God to hold on till Jesus Christ returns for rapture. A sound foundation from childhood keeps children trained, rooted, grounded in Christ so remain teenangels who grow as responsible adults like chick dancing by Asda in ww.youtube.com/watch?v=rsY8nb_1Zb8.

Have you known some people you lived or worked with who disappeared from your life? Some have moved on due to changes of jobs, location or time. Also changes in career, promotion, or the search for greener pastures caused by drought make people move further afield into the unknown and unchartered territory. Often one is not sure about personal safety or violent situations of the place. Two women worked late so accepted lifts from strangers because the buses were not working after midnight. It turned they were targeted by customers who stalked them. One woman screamed loudly to alert the other next door who jumped through the toilet window to escape with her life. Her body was not found by the family because it was too dark at night.HeirHunters5x

Others naturally passed on without any reason to think so until heir hunters knocked on their door and delivered the shocking good of inheritance bequeathed to them so discover lost family and bad news of death, while they were still wondering if those people are still alive or dead. Often precious memories from old photographs and past experiences are all they have to hold onto. Others spoke to all the possible contacts, network of friends and family in vain. Ceremonies such as birthdays and anniversaries are particularly difficult.  Their voice and jokes are often remembered by their loved ones who live with the void of their absence. One such missing person was a colleagues I once and asked to say hello to only to be told by the spouse he disappeared while on duty on his job so wad never seen or heard from again.  He was called human map because as a trained surveyor he could tell any location like London cab drivers before sat. nav. was invented and became popular. There was no suspicion circumstances or any dubious actions on his part.facebook-logo

It is equally painful to tell loved ones, spouse, siblings and colleagues about that person. One only daughter taught in a place and disappeared never heard of again. It is difficult for children who are young to remember their loved one so listen to others recount their lives to them. It is also considered devastating if that person never married or had children to continue bloodline and the family tree.  One such incident happened when young sailors docked in a place they were warned about. They followed their captain’s instructions to move about in groups or pairs, never to go anywhere alone. Despite such warnings the 2 were lured into a strange neighbourhood they never ever visited before. After so many months at sea they wanted ‘fun’ but the locals wanted money and imported goods from abroad. They were ambushed and one murdered. Without knowing at the time the other ran for his life and the other never made it. The family thought he was at sea until finally they were told the sad news. Unfortunately they could not visit the location because nobody knew the exact place they were lured to so bodywas never found for burial.

fig,white,mens,ffffff

Faithful and loyal friends keep their memory alive through relentless campaigns and publicity to continue their search for that loved one until time limitation delay or stop because lack of response may mean the person is presumed dead. There are occasions when funerals and memorials have taken place only for the person to turn up alive unexpectedly. There is joy and jubilation by loved ones and shock for spouses who moved on in new relationships.

 MDmissingimage

Milk cartons, newspapers and radio, posters or other communication methods are all used to reach as many people as possible. In an effort to jog someone’s memory to help if underage or has disabilities to receive medical care quickly  if necessary as soon as possible.  Yet not all missing people are ever located so may be honoured with a funeral for closure. The family may build a memorial in honour to remind the community and hope someone somewhere may have answers to questions on their mind. As new generations replace the old, often the missing person becomes part of family history without the raw emotions of pain felt by those who knew them intimately while alive. They are remembered with flowers and the memorial is tended to prevent it from ruin.

The relatives often do not know or understand the circumstances surrounding those lost so wonder if the were at peace in their last moments. Some of course are never heard from or lost contact with loved ones. So could not get back in touch for help during difficult moments. Those left behind grieve through stages of bereavement in denial, anger, guilt, survival complex, trauma and coming to terms of loss. Some never recover from shock and suspense of unanswered questions so become ill, depressed, angry and lose faith by blaming God.

 200px-UnknownBritishSoldier

Some friends, relatives and colleagues at times find the loss so unbearable they lose interest in life or become struck with mystery illness, nightmares but just carry on in life for the sake of siblings or responsibility of life duties. Others become too ill to hold down jobs in same place of the one lost so move on. The mssing missionaries, millions, slaves M.I.A. rest in peace in the Safe Arms of God, comforted by Jesus Christ. God sees and knows all, vengeance belongs to God. RIP

THE OTHER HALF

3-halfman cropThe other-half is so much emphasised in relationships people feel they are incomplete unless they have a spouse partner. as significant person for intimacy in their lives. It is absolutely true God said it is not good to be alone so God made Adam for Eve as his help-meet. It did not mean Adam was half – man, incomplete, helpless, so his needs were exclusively met by Eve as the only reason for their marriage or companionship. Adam was in charge of the garden of Eden with responsibilities of naming animals and dominating earth before Eve arrived. Adam did not consider his life meaningless because he was the first man on earth. God visiting him with the angels to talk with him so never alone or had to marry himself..image-0902313c2f1c46e6d0d483a7c154a2c85c23aebec9558aa79f2ec9548b4ecebb-V

Adam worked hard and had resources plus wealth more than he needed as a single man. So Adam did not think, unless obliged to support his wife and children, there was no vision or ambition to live for. For love is a two-way street not a cul-de-sac; for supporting the family in love and unity by God’s Grace.So the notion single people are not complete or whole, makes it seem like God created half man. And man had to help God complete man’s creation by finding love. So it means half man cannot live without another. This is why Adam and Eve did not see themselves as wholly complete in God. It is true God said 2 become one flesh but God did not say two halves become one.jesus_adam_eve_touch1

The other half, when imagined as a half sawn person, from head toe in equal parts cannot live. So people are not halved without a partner for God made them ALREADY INDIVIDUALLY COMPLETELY WHOLE IN HIS OWN IMAGE FROM CREATION AND BIRTH. Which means mankind is totally PERFECT and capable of achieving anything in life without the other half always by their side.  The fact that God joined Adam and Eve with all the worldly goods and material resources did not mean their marriage was perfect. They argued like some people do and had no prenuptial agreement. Instead they were not content or satisfied with all God gave them. They wanted to become like God by touching God’s exclusive tree of life preserved for God’s use only. So allowed themselves to be misled by deceiver to rebel against God with dire consequences so thrown out by God from Eden. Yet God sustained them and increased them by providing for them.

adam-eve-cain-and-abel-GoodSalt-dmtas0086Today relationships are still going through turmoil and malice because of the other half idea making people feel incomplete. Cain incomplete because God rejected his sacrifice but accepted Able’s.  Cain mistook God’s rejection of his inadequate offering as rejection of him. So instead of making peace with God with fresh sacrifice he projected his anger on his brother. Such are inconsistencies of codependence emotionally by presuming to live within other’s input to God. It creates generations of some feeling needy and clingy. By comparing themselves to others or other half, do not focus, trust or believe they are completely capable of achieving good success in life. So fulfil destiny purpose for life with or without other half’s rib. If found fits perfectly to complement each other.  Screen-Shot-2013-03-07-at-10.38.54-AMSo there is no need to put life on hold without vision, inspiration or motivation to achieve anything to fulfil themselves. hey run to and fro after anyone who acknowledges or flatters them yet use and abuse them. Some are made to feel lonely or as if something is wrong with them without just anyone on their arm to prove they are lovable. God’s calculations show it takes 1  + 1 =1 whole person not a half man as people think. Furthermore, the most precious years that must be spent enjoying life, growing, nurturing high self-esteem, earning, preparing, planning, building savings, wealth and security for future is wasted. This is because modern society pressures many immature people without full understanding of intimacy, risks and consequences to waste their life on puppy lust ‘love.’ Such people do not ever believe in themselves to comprehend life as a whole person deserving self-love. One does not have to have all the money or possess everything before marriage.iStock_000019627026Small-710x579The human expectation from half concept needs serious consideration because some communities are communal so not built on 2:4 notion of family. Relationship is not a trophy of conquest to prove one has arrived because family is bigger than just the 2 people involved. They do need God however God and the angels with the wealthy resources provided by God was still not good enough to sustain them. They needed to honour God and obey Him without allowing evil to influence them.They must do their part by contributing fairly and being self-reliant, self- sufficient with God’s help, as part of teamwork. The two becoming one flesh adapts issues of what is mine, yours and ours with a deep sense of belonging. thumbnailA whole person, fully matured, content and at peace with high self- esteem in tune with God will be able to cater for self plus another as a bonus and icing on the cake. An insecure person feels being alone means loneliness, half man syndrome so always on the look out for fulfilment as a parasite leech attached to others. Some panic in rebound relationships without dealing with themselves as completely whole human beings. Lustful addiction ties people to indulge flesh not have self- control as God’s temple to morally endure to please God. Half man is not God’s reason marriage for relationship is too serious a commitment not for the faint- hearted incomplete half-man. Rethink notions to renew transform one’s mind for wisdom, knowledge and understanding about purpose of relationship according to God’s will.

REGENERATE LIFE

tree-by-river-pmRegenerate life to transform and renew lifestyle as Psalm 1 in the Bible describes Christians. Believers as living trees planted by living water Jesus Christ shall not be moved. So bear good fruit in old age to bloom and blossom no matter what life throws at them daily. Highly blessed favoured trees, bear good fruit of righteousness as God’s tree of life multiplies. The living tree planted by riverside benefits from constant nutrient supply. A living tree provides oxygen for fresh air, breathing programme by God. Trees take in carbon dioxide to make plant food stored in roots food chain. Being planted rooted, grounded flourishes, grows better than trees found in hard dry desert wilderness place drought to shield as shade.

treeA living tree is good source of food, fruits yet lasts for a long time. Some trees live beyond a 1000 years and turns later into plywood used for homes, timber logging, furniture, fire wood. Others need time to dry up to be processed in new roles changes of life. After years trees, change state, condition to beautiful flourishing houses and homes. This becomes a dwelling place for family or holiday resort for vacation. Some are chopped into log pieces for firewood to warm the people living in the home. After demise turns into a blessing of wood for a house. Or changes into shelter, shade as natural time frame comes up.

Some perfumed trees like lady of the night give sweet fragrance perfume scent at night. Others processed burn to give relief to people stressed and pressured in life. God regenerates tree life again to rebound to make all things work together for good. Even dead wood does impossible to become possible to shield life from the elements. Similarly, metaphorically speaking, believer’s life is transformed under pressure, stress, pain, agony, trauma, under fire overcomes challenges to restart by faith. Assured God controls life God Knows what is best for mankind. A tree successfully completes purpose in life regenerates to lovely musical instrument of joy. Dead wood recreates harp for astounding maestro music celebrations.

Heaven_Harp_by_VassanthaRenewed tree’s strength is put into new shoots and branches; either it will rise up to produce new sprouts as the willow, alder tree, others; reported cypress tree, when cut down, may sprout  more.When passed from earth soul goes to Heaven among the saints worshipping God. So soul winning by believers who wins souls is wise according to Proverbs 11:30. The Cross of Christ is the most priceless piece of wood that ever blessed mankind yet was made from dead wood. Although considered of no use, the piece of a rejected dead wood played its greatest part in salvation history.

Our sins are forgiven, and our hearts renewed to holiness, heaven will be the rest of our souls, while our bodies are hidden in the grave from the malice of our enemies, feeling no more pain from our corruptions, or our corrections.  The wooden cross carried our Saviour Christ Jesus to fulfil His Mission and destiny on earth to save us with His precious blood. Believers planted by the living water Jesus Christ will resurrect again eternally forever in Heaven in the Presence of God and Christ.

 

The life of man may fitly be compared to the waters of a land flood, which spread far, but soon dry up. All Job’s expressions here show his belief in the great doctrine of the resurrection. Job’s friends proving miserable comforters, he pleases himself with the expectation of a change. At times, God allows changes and challenges to reprocess people into His Plans, Purposes and Thoughts Which are Higher and Greatern than human ones.

The Christian life is versatile as living trees regenerate, restore, recreate, resurrect live to fulfil God’s miracle test. Similarly, Christian believers spread the word of God so Jesus saves lost souls refreshed and replenished by the Holy Spirit and nurtured by the word of God. Aaron’s rod buds, blossoms with flowers in the Bible as ordained by God.

God’s power redeemed Jewish slaves when God Showed Superior Weapons of warfare with rod which swallowed the little snakes of magicians of Egypt before Pharaoh.  The Christian life is versatile so God treats, regenerates, restores, recreates and resurrects life again.

Some trees are used across footpath rivers,   ceilings, tiles or logs. They are perfectly and safely constructed into playground furniture to give fun to children.

Dead wood is used for entertaining relaxing times for playground furniture or becomes boat transport fit for royalty.

Wood is transformed into a boat just as Johan Huiber in Netherlands in 2007 rebuilt Noah’s ark. 3345748822_f632de81fe Noah used wood to build the ark to rescue his family from floods to save humanity for God in extreme cases becomes fed up with people beyond redemption like Sodom and Gomorrah but saves those who love and obey Him.

Magic Tree on the day it blew down

Podocarpus elongatus, the 'Magic Tree' in November 2011

In 1984, this tree was blown down in a severe storm that many still remember, and its remains were felled and removed. Then, on a day of gale force winds, in November 2005, the remaining yellowwood was split in half. Because it was still rooted, and because the Breede River Yellowwood is able to resprout and recover from damage like this so we decided to save it. The exposed roots were covered with soil, a portion of the crown was cut back and some of the boughs braced. It suffered sunburn but survived and sent out strong new shoots. Growth recovery is a slow process but doing well. The children may have lost a tree for now, but in a few decades it will be back, bigger and better than before!

In Job 14:7-15 though a tree is cut down, yet, in a moist situation, shoots come forth, and grow up as a newly planted tree. For there is hope of a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again if it cut down to the root, and only the stump of the root is left in the ground, as the tree in Nebuchadnezzar’s dream, Daniel 4:15 yet the owner of it may entertain a hope it is not destroyed but will bud out or logged so mundane tasks become fun times as seen here.
Unless in one place, in Aenaria; but since this is the case of some, it is sufficient to Job’s purpose and that the tender branch thereof will not cease; from shooting out; or its suckers will not cease which may be observed frequently to grow out of the roots of trees, those cut down, such as mentioned.So trees create times of refreshing by camp fires. Some become a place of shelter for animals who dwell in them. People cut up bamboo shoots and other trees for jugs and mugs as seen in picture.

Trees also regenerate to produce mushrooms sprout growing naturally. No situation in life is beyond repair although it may take on a different regenerated shape as wood carvings, mortar, pestles, woodwork is  useful so sustains life within the plans and purposes of God for mankind. Still useful purpose of uniting the community to celebrate good times so God uses people for team work to rebuild His Kingdom.

 

 

 

 

Dead logs become safe footpaths to keep the path clean and easy to walk on. The live tree become a pole without leaves, buds, branches, fruits etc. Wood becomes centre of focus for campsite stools, barbecues, toasting marsh mellows with joy laughter listening to stories.
