Father’s Day 2017

As 2017 father’s celebration comes up, i was struggling with what to post for two reasons
1. Having stayed without a father for the past 10 years (His memory still fresh to me).
2. Not been a father myself.

I was struggling with what to write about fathers, for the above reason. Having studied other fathers i can say this now.

Fatherhood is beyond fathering a child, to be a successful father you have to fully fill the three fold capacity of Prophets, priest and King.

As Prophet, you connect to the Almighty father and receive from him for your family, you see the future for your family, you provide a spiritual covering for them.

As Priest, you teach your family, you pronounce blessings over your family, you protect your family.

As King, you rule the family, provide for the family.

Without fulling operating in the three fold capacity, your no more than a sperm donor.

Fatherhood is a responsibility, it is a commitment which also last a life time.

Happy father’s day 2017

Who is Jesus? (The age long question)

jesus

The debate of who Jesus is or was (as others point) has been debate for as long as 2000+ years. There has been many conversations, interview, debate, argument as to the identity of Jesus. Most of such has ended in more confusion than answer to the question.

This post is an eye opener to those who are curious as to the identity of Jesus. This post will expose the reason the question has not been answered. (This post Is About the Identity of Jesus which as viewed by different people)

We will look at few class of humanity who are burden with the challenge of answering the question.

  1. Christians: In Christianity Jesus is part of the Trinity (Father, Son and Spirit) and he is the Son who is called Emmanuel (God with us). He came to this world and became the saviour of man-kind.
  2. Jews: In Judaism Jesus is there brother, the son of Joseph the carpenter, who grow up among them. They know his brothers and sisters. To them Jesus is there brother.
  3. Muslims: In Islam Jesus is a prophet sent by God. Islam believe God send Jesus as he sent other prophet thou Jesus was giving more grace and ability to perform special miracle. To them Jesus is a prophet.
  4. Atheists: To the atheist Jesus is another historic figure, who once lived on the planet earth. They regard not as a deity but as a historic personality.
  5. Other religions: In other religion Jesus is a great moral teacher.

Back to the question, WHO IS JESUS? The question that has plaque the human race for long. This the question that has gave others hope, others it results in wars, battles, disputed etc.

To successfully answer this question then the questioner and the provider of the answer must agree on which of the Jesus they want to know and they are explaining respectably.

When a Muslim ask an atheist or a Christian who is Jesus? Then for clarity and for easy answer is to explain to him as a Muslim you will tell him about JESUS THE PROPHET AND A CHRISTIAN YOU TALK TO HIM ABOUT JESUS THE SAVIOUR etc.

So to put an end to the long debate is to identify which Jesus you are asked. To know about:

Jesus the saviour THEN study the holy bible.

Jesus our brother THEN study the Jewish history.

Jesus the prophet THEN study the Quran.

Jesus the historic figure THEN study ancient history.

Jesus the great moral teacher THEN study other religious materials.

I hope this post will help bring an end to the misconception and understanding arising from the question WHO IS JESUS?

Blessed . . . in the Eyes of God

Blessed . . . in the Eyes of God

What is happiness? Ask 20 different people to answer that question, and you’ll probably get 20 different answers.

But for the citizen of the kingdom of heaven, the path to true happiness is the path of blessedness described by Jesus in Matthew 5:1 – 11.

As Matthew Henry points out, until you know what true happiness is, you will never discover God’s path to find it.

Walk With Matthew Henry
“Happiness is the thing people pretend to pursue. But most form a wrong notion of it and miss the way.

“The general opinion is: Blessed are those who are rich and honorable in the world, who spend their days in mirth and their years in pleasure.

“Jesus comes to correct this fundamental error and give us quite another notion of blessedness.

“However paradoxical his teaching may appear to those in the world, to those who are saved it is a rule of eternal truth and certainty by which we must shortly be judged.

“If this, therefore, be the beginning of Christ’s doctrine, the Christian’s duty must be to take his measure of happiness from those maxims, and to direct his life accordingly.”

Walk Closer to God
Would you consider yourself truly happy if your life were characterized by meekness . . . mercy . . . poverty in spirit . . . persecution?

You would if you had God’s perspective on happiness.

Given the chance, the world will offer you a bogus substitute — a happiness dependent on money, prestige or circumstances.
Christ says true happiness consists of none of these.

But you must decide. Which notion of blessedness will you build your life on today? How do you complete the sentence “Happiness is . . .”?
Matthew 5:3

Honesty Pays

I just saw this nice story with a wonderful lesson and thought to share it with u all, please enjoy:

An aging King realized that if he died he has no one to take over the throne. He decided to adopt a son.

He launched a competition and 10 boys made it to the top. The King said to them, “I have one last test and whoever comes top will become my adopted son and heir to my throne”.

He gave each boy a seed of corn and told them to take the seed home, plant and nurture it for 3 weeks. The 10 boys took their seeds and ran home to plant their seeds.

In one home, the boy and his parents were sad when the seed failed to sprout. The boy had done everything but he failed.

His friends advised him to buy a seed and plant it but his God fearing parents who had always taught him honesty refused.

The day came and the 10 boys went to the palace. All the 9 boys were successful.

The King went to each boy asking – “Is that what came out of the seed I gave you?” And each boy said “Yes, your majesty”. The King would nod and move down the line until the last boy in the line who was shaking with fear.

The King asked him – “What did you do with the seed I gave you?” The boy said “I planted it and cared for it your majesty but it failed to sprout.” The King went to the throne with the boy and said, “I gave these boys boiled seeds and a boiled seed cannot sprout.

If a King must have one quality, it must be honesty and only this boy passed the test.” We live in a society where people will do anything for success.

God sometimes does not give us things because He wants to teach us a lesson.

How many people out there have achieved success the wrong way? How many people send their children to expensive schools and build houses, buy expensive cars with stolen money?

How many people are occupying top positions yet they stole the certificates? How many people are successful out there at all costs?

HOW MANY PEOPLE WILL BE CROWNED AS KINGS IN HEAVEN FOR BEING FAITHFUL UNTIL THE END? I PRAY THAT I BE FAITHFUL TILL THE END!!!

Please be faithful to God no matter what life throws at you, even if life gives you boiled seed.

I hope you can spare me your precious time to send this to ten people to be faithful in their Christian life.

JESUS MY KING
