HOW TO CONTROL YOUR SEXUAL URGES AS A CHRISTIAN SINGLE


Sometime ago, a sister approached me with concerns about her sexuality. She wondered why although she is deliberate about her walk with God, she still has a strong urge for sex. When I smiled and told her I had sexual desires too and that these desires were God-given and normal, she was greatly relieved.

When you ask some Christian singles, ‘have you at any point felt like having sex?’ the look on their faces will make you wonder if you’ve just asked an abominable question.

Yes we have the standard ‘flee sexual immorality’ instruction.

There are lots of sexual purity campaigns, seminars on the demonic operations behind illicit sexual affairs, talk shows that tell stories on how destinies are destroyed via fornication.

Too many struggles have arisen out of sexual urges that looks impossible to be tamed.

But the question still remains in the heart of many Christian singles.

 Can sexual urges be controlled? What happens when my body just desires physical intimacy? How do I handle my raging emotions knowing that God demands sexual purity?

Villager Shot Dead In Land Dispute


A DISPUTE over land turned fatal at Ariston Holdings’ Roscommon Estate in Chimanimani on Monday after a security guard gunned down a villager and injured another.

Police and Ariston Holdings confirmed the incident yesterday.

Roscommon Estate produces world acclaimed niche red tea Wanganella.

It is also into macadamia, coffee and potato production. The company runs four other estates across the country, namely Claremount, Kent, Clearwater and Southdown.

The company has been at loggerheads with villagers since 2002 after part of its estate was gazetted by Government.
This paved way for its allocation to the landless.

“They (Ariston Holdings) asked for a grace period saying they wanted to harvest their crop but they continued on the farm to date creating friction with new farmers who had been allocated the land,” a source told The Herald.

Relations between the company and the villagers broke down after it allegedly destroyed their crops and banana plantations recently.

 Villagers’ homes were also destroyed.
This was after the company obtained a court order granting it permission to evict the settlers.

“On November 19 the Messenger of Court came to evict the settlers. When they came, the district lands committee was engaging the company to try and find an amicable solution. They started destroying some structures. On Monday morning the company sent its employees to destroy the people’s banana plantations and other crops,” added the source.
Some homes were also destroyed.

“Last night those who had their homes destroyed decided to go to the estate to safeguard their belongings. A security guard identified as Nicholas Bere fired at the villagers, killing Mr Beware Tsarai. He injured Mr Shingai Mafake.

 Mr Mafake was rushed to Mutambara Hospital where he is admitted. Mr Tsarai’s body was taken to a mortuary in Chipinge. Bere was arrested and faces a murder charge,” said the source.

Manicaland deputy police spokesperson Assistant Inspector Luxon Chananda confirmed the incident yesterday.State media

Grandpa (75) Kills Wife Over Infidelity, Buries Body In Shallow Grave



A 75-YEAR-OLD Bulilima village head has been arrested for allegedly striking his wife with an axe in an infidelity row before burying the body in a shallow grave.

Foreman Sibanda of Village 13 in Vulindlela Ward allegedly struck his wife with an axe on November 11 after accusing her of having an extra marital affair.

He carried the body in a wheelbarrow and then dug a shallow grave in the fields about a kilometre from his homestead where he buried her. The village head of Village 12, Mr Moses Moyo said the offence came to light after Sibanda decided to reveal what he had done to his relatives and showed them where he had buried his wife.

He said the woman’s body was exhumed on Tuesday after a report was made to the police by the deceased’s relatives.

“It appears that Sibanda and his wife Petty Sibanda had a misunderstanding after he accused her of having an extra marital affair. The two were now sleeping in separate bedrooms because of the misunderstanding.

“Then on 11 November Sibanda took an axe and went to his wife’s bedroom hut and confronted her over the matter.

 They had a misunderstanding and Sibanda struck her with the axe on the head and she died on the spot.

 After realising what he had done, Sibanda carried the body in a wheelbarrow and buried it in a shallow grave in his fields,” said Mr Moyo.State media

WISDOM PERSPECTIVES


 _The Fact  of  Righteousness And Evil_

 *Proverbs 29:7(KJV)*

 _The righteous considereth the cause of the poor: but the wicked regardeth not to know it_ .

Righteous people are considerate people who have other people at heart.  Evil people are selfish and inconsiderate to human plight.

It is in the nature of righteous people to do good through obedience to God's word in as much as it is in the nature of the wicked to do evil through disobedience to God's Word. Like begets like is the law of the game.

The righteous do not do good to become righteous but they do good because they are righteous.

In the opposite direction of nature it could be equally said that the wicked are not wicked because the do evil things,  but rather they do evil things because they are wicked.  It is a matter of nature and not mere action.

Wickedness or righteousness is not a product of a mere  act but a matter of nature that brings about either wicked  or righteous acts depending on  what  nature manifests.

It is nature that informs or determines either righteous or evils acts.

Nevertheless,  the righteous can be tempted to sin like Adam was  though he had no sinfull nature in him.

In the garden of Eden was a tree of two natures,  namely good and evil.  It took temptation for Adam to succumb to evil nature though  Adam had no evil nature in him.

Romans 12:2  warns believers not to be conformed to the world but rather to be transformed by the renewal of their minds.

Though born again our minds are still open to worldly influences and it is our responsibility to refuse to be influenced negatively by the world we live in or we will sin.

Apostle Paul speaks of pulling down imaginations that seeks to rise above the knowledge of God and bring it into subjection under Christ.

 *2 Corinthians 10:3-5(KJV)*

 _For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:_

( _For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)_

 _Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ_;

The word of God is a strong weapon against evil influence and it seeks to  challenge inner thoughts  of  human  mind and confronts   one's way of thinking.

 *Hebrews 4:12(KJV)*

 _For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart._

The word of God has the power and ability to  diagnose  and analyze hidden  intents and inner motives.  It cross-examines thoughts and motives and lay them open before God.

Without the challenge of God's word the human heart or thoughts can be  desperately wicked.

 *Jeremiah 17:9-10(KJV)*

 _The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?_

 _I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings._

It takes temptation for the righteous to succumb to sin.

Satan uses appealing ideas and views to lure rightoues people into temptation and sin.  He does not tempt the wicked but the righteous as Adam was.

Satan came to Eve in the Garden of Eden and suggested a second view that did not characterise the tree of the knowledge of good and evil as bad but good to make one as wise as God.

The moment Eve entertained that view she began to see the tree differently from what God had described it to be before (Gen.  2:16).

 *Genesis 3:6(KJV)*

 _And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat._

Though ennocent and without evil nature,  Eve succumbed to sin or evil through temptation.

 *James 1:12-15(KJV)*

 _Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him._

 _Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:_

 _But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed._

 _Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death._

There is not need for temptation where there are no righteous people.  It is only the righteoues that can be tempted. The wicked can not be tempted.

Nevertheless,  The righteous can overcome temptation if they choose to obey God's Word.

Evil nature does not take heed to God's voice or Word as Cain did.

 *Genesis 4:7(KJV)*

 _If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him_ .

Cain killed his brother Abel immediately after God had spoken to him and had persuaded Cain to do what was good.

It is when you refuse to obey  the Word of God  that sin will have an upper hand of you.

We overcome temptation to sin through obedience to God's word.

The only escape route from sin is God's word.  Sin is transgression of (ignoring) God's word.

 *1 Corinthians 10:13(KJV)*

 _There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it._

If you ignore God's Word you will miss God's way to overcome temptation.

 *Revelation 12:11(KJV)*

 _And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death._

Those who obey the Word if God will overcome temptation and evil.

MaShurugwi 'Disrupt' Leonard Zhakata Show


Machete-wielding artisanal miners are terrorising music shows, demanding free entry and torching violence, making artistes think seriously about going to smaller towns.

They get the name MaShurugwi from the small Midlands town located on a mineral-rich greenstone belt, known in this area as the Selukwe Schist Belt and the centre of a chromite, gold and nickel mining area.

Some of the artisanal miners became aggressive and now have given their name to all groups, usually armed with machetes, who force others off their panning claims or who just cause trouble. And Midlands is just one affected province.

MaShurugwi do not only give musicians laborious tasks of deciding on whether to hold shows in certain areas or not, they have also threatened musicians’ potential income by unleashing violence at shows or forcing their way into gigs without paying.

ZORA musician Leonard Zhakata recalls when he was forced to let people enjoy his show for free after violence sparked by MaShurugwi broke-out at the midst of his show in Chipinge, Manicaland Province.
Zhakata said they rely on spying on these ‘gangs’ and at times engage their leaders in their programmes, as a way of buying safety.

“We sometimes encounter their clashes here and there. We make sure at every show there is police presence, especially in areas associated with artisanal mining gangs.
“There is huge cost involved in trying to deal with issues of security and sometimes in those areas where the situation is very tense, we spy to know the purported gang leaders and try to involve them in some way.

“I remember when there was gold rush in Chipinge some time back and MaShurugwi came there, police officers were out-numbered. We saw police officers taking off their hats running for dear life.

“The situation only normalised after the arrival of military police.

 The show became free for all,” he said.State media

When God's Preparing You



God is the great builder Who's build the lives of His children in an awesome and unique way. One thing about God is, if He's intending to place a man above great things and masses of people, He'll make sure that such a person experience the feeling, treatment or stigma of the lowest strata of people in the society. Before Abraham became the father of many Nations with a large expanse of land, he was first a stranger and a wanderer. Before Jesus could become our high priest, He was subjected to experience the temptations and weakness of an helpless man, David was homeless before he climb the throne.

This was so, not because God wanted to be mean, but because he want us to feel what they feel, so that when He raise us, we would show them Love and prevent them from experiencing what we've experienced.

1Peter 5:6 Humble yourselves therefore under the Mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:

The key wisdom here is to exhibit humility. That is, humble ourselves before God totally, to let him take us through whatever it is He wants to take us in the appointed time.

In times as such as this, we need to put away all our defences and let God have his way. Some of us are meant to stay in a company and not leave, no whatever what comes, some of us must continue under a mentorship or boss till he will call us out and glorify us.

Stay with God and be a winner.

If you don't know Jesus as Savior, you can pray this right now: ", Jesus Christ, i want to get to know you and trust you.

I humbly ask you to accept me into your kingdom, not because i deserve it but because on the cross, it was finished. You paid it all! I accept you as my Lord and Savior today, you died for me and rose for me, thank you Lord. I pray this in Jesus Name. Amen."

If you just prayed to accept Jesus, please email me at mindofchrist00@gmail.com and let me know about it. I’d like to send you some free materials to help you start your journey with Jesus.

Word of encouragement


Instead of your shame you will receive a double portion, and instead of disgrace you will rejoice in your inheritance. And so you will inherit a double portion in your land, and everlasting joy will be yours.
Isaiah 61:7, NIV

When this Scripture was written, God's people were going through a very dark time. They were being held captive against their will and mistreated by other nations.

 God sent this word to encourage them and give them hope for their future. When the time came, God was faithful to His Word!

Are you going through a difficult time today? Let this word bring you encouragement, too.

 He is the God of restoration—that means He's not going to just repay you for every wrong done, He's going to go above and beyond and make things even better than they were before.

If you are facing challenges today or going through a time of adversity, remember that it's always darkest just before the dawn. Your days are destined to shine brighter because God is faithful.

 As you stay in faith and are obedient to His Word, you'll receive double for your trouble and the blessings He has in store for you!

PRAYER FOR TODAY:
"God, thank You for Your Word which lights my path and guides my steps.

I choose to put my trust and hope in You today. Thank You for bringing restoration into my life as I keep my heart and mind stayed on You in Jesus' name. Amen."

BUILDING STRONG RELATIONSHIPS



 “And it came to pass, when he had made an end of speaking unto Saul, that the soul of Jonathan was knit with the soul of David, and Jonathan loved him as his own soul.” (1 Sam 18:1)

 To be rich means to be wealthy. Also, it means to have in abundance. The word wealthy comes from the word abundance. Another synonym would be the word, good. So, goodness is wealth.

I will define relationship as the connection that exists between two or more people. It is also the way and manner people relate with one another.

Psalm 68:19 tells us what it means to have a relationship with our Father in heaven.

It says that you should have a relationship with your heavenly Father who “daily loadeth us with benefits.”

Psalm 103: 2 says, “And forget not all his benefits.” Why? Because He “forgiveth all thine iniquities … healeth all thy diseases … redeemeth thy life from destruction … [and] crowneth thee with loving kindness and tender mercies.

” No wonder Psalm 23 says in the last verse, “Goodness and mercy shall follow me.”

I make a declaration that as you relate with your heavenly Father and connect with the King of kings and LORD of lords, from today, goodness and mercy shall follow you; the benefit of healing shall be your portion, and you will be redeemed from destruction.

“Bless the Lord O my soul … and forget not all his benefits.” (Psalm 103: 1-2)

When a man is faced with all manner of problems, he begins to relate with the problems of life, instead of relating with the owner of life.

Anything taking the place of God in your life will be crushed today.

FURTHER READING: Gen 44: 30

PRAYER/CONFESSION: Goodness and Mercy shall always follow me and my family. Amen!

WORDS OF WISDOM: Goodness is wealth.
Sermon

RELATIONSHIPS DEVELOP FROM WISDOM



“And David went out whithersoever Saul sent him, and behaved himself wisely: and Saul set him over the men of war, and he was accepted in the sight of all the people, and also in the sight of Saul’s servants.” (1 Samuel 18:5)

In the book of 1 Samuel 18, the Bible introduces the David and Jonathan relationship, with emphasis on David’s poor background.

By divine providence, God created an opportunity that brought them together. God also created an event that made David to shine. This gave him the opportunity to stand before the king.

The heart and the soul of Jonathan were so knit with David’s that he loved him as his own soul. Based on relationship, Jonathan was ready to give himself up; to give his life up for David’s sake.

The Bible says David “behaved himself wisely” (1st Samuel 18:5). He didn’t look at the things around. He saw something unique.

He saw a benefit. He looked into the future. He was very mindful, and so Jonathan was attracted to him. Immediately David was done speaking, Jonathan loved him as his own soul.

The Bible makes us to understand that by virtue of the rich relationship between David and Jonathan, when David finally became king, he remembered the kindness and generosity that Jonathan showed him, and said, “Is there yet any that is left of the house of Saul, that I may shew him kindness for Jonathan’s sake?”(2 Samuel 9:1)

My beloved, wherever you find yourself, strive to build a good and rich relationship with those you meet, because you never can tell what will become of anybody.


Word of Wisdom: Wherever you find yourself, strive to build a good and rich relationship with those you meet

Prayer/ Confession: Help me Lord to build a good and rich relationship with people and to be a blessing. Amen!

Musona Remains On The Sidelines At Anderlecht


Warriors captain  Knowledge Musona is yet to make an impression  at his Belgian giants  RSC Anderlecht.

 Musona was yet again left out of the matchday squad for yesterday’s game.

Anderlecht played out a goalless draw with the the 13th-placed side but just like since the season commenced, there was no sign of the ‘Smiling Assasin’ in proceedings.

The 29-year-old captained the Warriors in their first win of the AFCON 2021 qualifying campaign, a 2-1 victory over Zambia, which he assisted both goals for Khama Billiat.

Musona’s future at the club still remains shrouded in uncertainty as Anderlecht rarely provide any detail regarding the Zimbabwe international, whose only contribution to the the club of late is fulfilling his contractual obligations by reporting for training.

Pagels To Return To Warriors?



FORMER Warriors coach, Klaus Dieter Pagels, says he is still interested in another dance with the senior national football team provided ZIFA can secure a sponsor to cater for his welfare.

The German coach is willing to come back to Africa and revive his romance with the Warriors six years after leaving them.

Pagels arrived in Zimbabwe as ZIFA technical advisor in 2011 following his secondment to the association by the Germany Olympic Committee.

He was then appointed interim coach the following year after Rahman Gumbo resigned following the failed 2013 AFCON qualifying campaign.
Pagels took over the 2014 World Cup qualification process and presided over matches against Guinea and Egypt.

His team had fresh-faced players, and was captained by Denver Mukamba, who then was only 20, while the chief striker was Knowledge Musona.

Musona is now the skipper of the team.
The Warriors coaching post is set to become vacant on December 31 this year when Antipas’ short-term contract expires.

ZIFA haven’t indicated whether they are going to renew the interim coach’s contract or will look for another coach.State media

THE SOLUTION IS FROM GOD


“I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.”  (Psalm 121:1-2)

David was going through so much troubles when he wrote the above Psalm.

Even in the heat of his travails he said to himself: “I will lift up mine eyes unto the hill ….”

 In essence, he was saying, I refuse to bow in defeat. I refuse to give up. I will keep my eyes stayed on the Hill. The Hill is Jesus.

 If you look down in the face of challenges and difficulties of life, you will see a lot of things that can pull you down.

What is around you is a distraction released by the enemy to steal your focus from your destination and Promise Land.

It is when you are close to your destination that the devil would want to take advantage of you by increasing the degree of your troubles and challenges.

Keep your eyes on the solution that comes from above.

When I just got saved, I became friendly with Papa Oral Roberts.

One of the songs they sang that inspired me in the late 1970s and early 1980s was: “Something good is going to happen to you, happen to you, this very day /

Something good is going to happen to you, Jesus of Nazareth is passing your way.”

One day, I asked him why that song was always sang when his program is about coming up on air.

He said, “The world is a helpless place. I sing that song to give hope to the hopeless.”

Keep your head and eyes up! If you keep your eyes down, the world will pressure you to keep your head down. Life will bring you down to standard zero if you keep your head down.

When you lift your head up, you leave your environment for the spirit environment, the environment of hope, the environment of breakthroughs through grace.

Word of Wisdom: Life will bring you down to standard zero if you keep your head down

Prayer/Confession: Lord, I refuse to keep my head down. No pressures of life will bring my head down. Amen!

It's always Now




There's a misconception that kills. A misconception that had relegated many people into life failure.

The misconception that something Great is coming tomorrow, and thereby waiting for tomorrow to come. There's nothing like tomorrow's greatness, all there is, is today. And today will always be a direct representation of what we inputted yesterday. This life is like a computer, without any input, there can never be anything to process and neither can there be any output also.

while it is said:

*“Today, if you will hear His voice, Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.” Heb. 3:15*

Many people hold the believe that, when they enjoy life to a certain level, then they will come to God. Whatever it is you want to do, the best time is not yesterday nor tomorrow, the best time is now. If you don't seek God before trouble, you might highly not find Him in your trouble.

If your now is ordinary, your tomorrow will surely be ordinary. But if you give your life to God right now, you've just secured a great avenue to see God work on your behalf in the days you'll need him most.

Don't postpone that fast and prayers again, don't postpone that call of God again, don't postpone time in his presence and more...

If you don't know Jesus as Savior, you can pray this right now: ", Jesus Christ, i want to get to know you and trust you. I humbly ask you to accept me into your kingdom, not because i deserve it but because on the cross, it was finished. You paid it all!

Kanye West Releases Gospel Album

Kanye West’s latest gospel-infused
Jesus is King album has topped the Billboard 200 chart and the Top Christian Albums chart.

According to CBN News, the fashion mogul turned evangelist launched the album on Oct. 25, becoming his ninth consecutive album to debut at the No. 1 spot on Billboard 200. He’s tied with Eminem for the most records to hit the top of the charts.

For the first time, West also hit the No. 1 spots on the Top Christian Albums and Top Gospel Album charts as well.

“West is the latest artist to cross to No. 1 on the faith-based tallies after establishing stardom at other genres,” according to Billboard. “Among others, the King of Rock & Roll, Elvis Presley, and country icons Alan Jackson and Reba McEntire all boast Top Christian Albums No. 1s since the start of 2017.”

The album’s success prompted a massive increase in faith-based Google searches, according to Faithwire . People searched for “Jesus” and “What do Christians believe?” shortly after the album was released.

The American Bible Society saw the opportunity to reach out to those seeking with free copies of the Bible.

“When we see an influential cultural figure like Kanye inspire young people to curiously seek out answers to their faith questions,” John Plake, director of ministry intelligence for ABS said, “we see an opportunity to step in and do what we do best as an organization, and that’s provide and point people to God’s Word.”

ABS’ goal is to distribute 1,000 copies of the Good News Translation for free, as reported by Fox News .

“Kanye’s album just points to cultural curiosity and we’re happy to stand in the gap and say if you’re curious about the Bible, we want to provide one to you,” Plake also said.

Mpilo Hospital Situation :Essential Drugs Unavailable, Out Patients Department Closed

Senior doctors have described as  "outright lies " claims that the situation at Mpilo Central Hospital is normal.

The senior doctors have also dismissed an article published by a state run publication claiming doctors are satisfied with government efforts to address their grievances.

See statement below :
The senior doctors are dismayed by a recently published newspaper article in the Sunday News of 03/11/2019 headlined “we won’t watch people die: Mpilo boss’.

We are surprised that this article portrays a normal functioning hospital with most doctors available at work. As senior doctors we feel it is only correct for the public to know the truth as follows:

1. Most junior doctors are still incapacitated and are not able to attend to their daily duties
from 03/09/2019.

2. Middle-level doctors remain incapacitated with some department HMOs formally
declaring incapacitation on 17/10/2019. Ward rounds are no longer consistent and calls are no longer 24-hour calls.

3. Senior-level doctors are also incapacitated although some have been attending to few
emergency cases.

4. The flexi-hours system was suggested by the ministry and allows nurses to work 2
days a week a situation which has made working in the hospital impossible as few nurses will be looking after patients at each given time.
Sometimes 2 nurses per shift in a ward. This flexi-hours system has caused disruption in continuity of care and has led to avoidable deaths in the wards.

5. Outpatient Department has been closed for the past 2 months and no patients are being attended to at the moment. All chronic conditions patients are thus prejudiced from proper care.

6. In the Department of Medicine, there is a poor supply of medications and most patients have to take samples to private laboratories at an inflated expense.
Currently, patients with chronic conditions are not able to access treatment due to closure of the outpatients’ department. Chronic kidney disease patients on dialysis rely on own funds to buy most of the consumables.

7. Casualty Department is open patients have to wait long hours before being attended
to as most casualty officers are incapacitated to come and attend to patients on time.
Some patients are admitted without a clear plan and only to be seen the next day. This has resulted in avoidable deaths as patients are falsely reassured that are doctors available to attend to them.

8. In the Department of Surgery and Anaesthesia, theatres are only attending to emergency
cases and they remain under-equipped to carry out specialised procedures.
Only 4 out of 10 theatres are currently functional.

 Paediatric theatre is non-functional and maternity recovery rooms have no monitors.

In Neurosurgery the department is almost shut down due to lack of equipment. The equipment is outdated and is no longer recommended for use.

9. In Paediatrics the situation on the ground is dire as some departments are closed eg
Nutrition unit and outpatients department. The new-borns unit is short-staffed resulting in an increase in perinatal mortality and morbidity.

10. In Obstetrics and Gynaecology, the department is attending to emergency maternity
and gynaecology cases. However, no elective cases are being done and teaching has been affected.

11. The incapacitation has also disrupted proper learning for medical students and interns
who are supposed to work under supervision.

Conclusion
Contrary to peddled reports, the situation at Mpilo is critical and any attempt to view it as normal would be tantamount to propagating a silent genocide.
Lifesaving equipment is in a state of disrepair, essential drugs and sundries are unavailable, while hospital staff cannot afford to come to work.

We are incapacitated as highlighted by SHDA members across the country and we demand that the situation be treated with the urgency it deserves.

Money Can't Buy Success

Money can't buy anyone the power & ability to stand strong and face challenges in life. It's a divine gift planted in every human being on earth.

The reason why some people are not happy in life is b'cos they've not yet discovered how strong & powerful they are within. Focus within you for wisdom, strength, ability, power, strength.

NB: Money is very good and important for our daily individual lives but it doesn't have the solution to give anyone ability, power, wisdom, good health & etc.

Take a visit to any morden hospital and u will know that the richest people in there are also dying daily. Why couldn't their abundance of money save them.

 Money is very good for our individual physical lives but it has no value when it comes to overcoming challenges physically, mentally, emotionally, psychologically, and spiritually.
The Preacher's Sincere Talk

Victory is certain

“And the Philistine said to David, come to me, and I will give thy flesh unto the fowls of the air, and to the beast of the field.” (1 Sam 17:44)

In 1 Samuel 17:44, Goliath said to David, “Come to me, and I will give thy flesh unto the fowls of the air, and to the beasts of the field.”

He had concluded it. He thought it was done, but what he did not know is that David already said in Psalm 135:5, “For I know that the LORD is great and that our Lord is above all gods.”

When you are going somewhere, and you have to pray, pray as if you are mad. When you read 1 Samuel 17: 45, David was saying to Goliath

“Thou comest to me with a spear, and with a sword and with a shield; but I come to thee in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied.”

In other words, David said, “I have come nto you in a name.” The Rock of Ages, my protector. He is Jesus!

A name is there. What is the name? Jehovah Sabaoth, the God of battles. Sabaoth! That is the name. See, you must look for the appropriate name of God for each occasion and situation you find yourself.

The name of Jesus covers all, but there are some battles that require you to call God by His specific name with which he won such battles in the Bible.

That was exactly what David did.
Who is man? What is man? You cannot fight with God. Who are you? Where did you come from? Were you not born by a woman?

Words of Wisdom: You must look for the appropriate name of God for each occasion.

Prayer/ Confession: I decree and declare by the name above all names, devil you are a liar. You cannot stop me from taking what is mine. Amen!

Don't be afraid of witches

You were told unless the witches and  wizards in your family die, you can't get a breakthrough.

Your life is still in a mess because you are waiting for someone to die.

 God is  powerful and He can  bless you when those witches and wizards are alive.

 Receive wisdom and change your prayer and fasting topics because even if those you think are witches and wizards died, the spirit of WITCHCRAFT will not die, therefore other ignorant souls in your family will still carry on this witches and wizards activities.

 Are you going to spend you life on EARTH killing witches and wizards in your family.

Be honest, how many people you think  are responsible for your downfall died in your family because of your prayers and fasting?

Devil's tricks exposed

There's one thing the devil does very well, also there's another thing Jesus does very well.

 The devil convicts and Jesus acquits. How? Let me illustrate this with a story.

A young apprentice was warned sternly by his master not to take coffee from his cup. But after the master had left, a man came in and persuaded the young apprentice to drink the coffee. He claimed that he had spoken with the master and the master had given the young apprentice permission to drink from his coffee. The young apprentice naively drink from the cup. But when the master came back, the man stood up and pointed at the young apprentice and convicts him of disobeying the master. This is the way the devil convicts people.


But Jesus on the higher ground acquits people. Jesus is another man who stands by the coffee, but instead of lying, he encourage us to obey the master. It's impossible to do it in our own strength, but our trust in him will help us to stand. Jesus will never take advantage of your ignorance, he'll rather help you despite of it and make you so strong.

The devil will pressurize you till you fall and accuse you before the father that you've fallen. But Jesus will engrace you to do the will of his Father, and will present you blameless before Him, as if it's by your own power you accomplish righteousness.


If you don't know Jesus as Savior, you can pray this right now: ", Jesus Christ, I want to get to know you and trust you. I humbly ask you to accept me into your kingdom, not because I deserve it but because on the cross, it was finished. You paid it all! I accept you as my Lord and Savior today, you died for me and rose for me, thank you Lord. I pray this in Jesus Name. Amen."

If you just prayed to accept Jesus, please email me at mindofchrist00@gmail.com and let me know about it. I’d like to send you some free materials to help you start your journey with Jesus.

Satan is Powerless

The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit. Psalm 34:18.

Satan knows that those who ask God for pardon and grace will obtain it; therefore he presents their sins before them to discourage them.

Against those who are trying to obey God, he is constantly seeking occasion for complaint. Even their best and most acceptable service he seeks to make appear corrupt. By countless devices, the most subtle and the most cruel, he endeavors to secure their condemnation.

In his own strength, man cannot meet the charges of the enemy. In sin-stained garments, confessing his guilt, he stands before God.

But Jesus, our Advocate, presents an effectual plea in behalf of all who by repentance and faith have committed the keeping of their souls to Him. He pleads their cause, and by the mighty arguments of Calvary, vanquishes their accuser. His perfect obedience to God’s law has given Him all power in heaven and in earth, and He claims from His Father mercy and reconciliation for guilty man. To the accuser of His people He declares: “The Lord rebuke thee, O Satan. These are the purchase of My blood, brands plucked from the burning.”

 And to those who rely on Him in faith, He gives the assurance, “Behold, I have caused thine iniquity to pass from thee, and I will clothe thee with change of raiment.” (Zechariah 3:4). AG 316.3
All who have put on the robe of Christ’s righteousness will stand before Him as chosen and faithful and true. Satan has no power to pluck them out of the hand of the Saviour.

Not one soul who in penitence and faith has claimed His protection will Christ permit to pass under the enemy’s power. His word is pledged: “Let him take hold of my strength, that he may make peace with me; and he shall make peace with me” (Isaiah 27:5).

The promise given to Joshua is given to all: “If thou wilt keep my charge, ... I will give thee places to walk among these that stand by” (Zechariah 3:7).

Angels of God will walk on either side of them, even in this world, and they will stand at last among the angels that surround the throne of God.

Shun pride!

Some believers (even Preachers) are full of pride because they think they are living perfectly right in their physical life.

It makes them always attack, condemn, & judge others who are struggling.

Dear believers of Christ especially the Preachers who think their maturity in some areas of their individual lives makes gives them the mandate to be screaming and shouting at others believers struggling, if the gospel of Christ which brings CHRIST consciousness is about screaming & shouting about the sins of people, then no man or woman will be qualify to have eternal life.

 No one is and can be perfect in this fake, illusion, physical perishable body.

 If by the grace of God you have matured in certain areas of life and don't do certain things in life, stop boasting because someone who does not believe in CHRIST might even be better in terms of moral  than you.

You are protected from all evil attacks

When Jesus was born, the Bible tells us that King Herod staged a manhunt to kill the young child.

 But an angel came to Joseph in a dream and commanded him to take the child and His mother and flee to Egypt.
 (Matthew 2:13-14).

 Joseph obeyed and did as he was told. This was not just any child, this was the Savior. There was a real threat to Jesus.

 Herod could have killed Him if Joseph had not obeyed the angel's command. It's important to always obey God's instructions.

 There was a similar instruction in Exodus 12. Because of Pharaoh's harheartedness to let God's people go, the death angel was assigned to wreak havoc in Egypt.

 But the Lord instructed the children of Israel to kill a Lamb and mark their doorposts and lintels with the blood of the slain animal and stay indoors. The houses of the Egyptians were not marked and the death angel struck every firstborn in the land of Egypt.

 Whether man or beast. The Egyptians and others who weren't Jews knew about this were also protected. (Exodus 12:38).

 They obeyed God's principles for protection. You can't do what you want to do and expect God to shield them from evil. God gives directions.

 You must follow. He is the boss. When you align yourself with His perfect will and comply, you will permanently dwell in safety. You are shielded from all attacks and evil. Hallelujah!!

SPIRIT OF GOLIATH


“And the Philistine said unto David, Am I a dog, that thou comest to me with staves? And the Philistine cursed David by his gods.” (1 Samuel 17:43)

Goliath is everywhere. Goliath is not a person but a spirit – a very aggressive spirit. If you don’t kill it, it will kill you. Goliath has no pity. It has no mercy.

In 1 Samuel 17:43, Goliath began to curse David by his gods. What does that mean? He was making enchantments, which were coming from incantations.

He was attempting to manipulate David’s spirit. That is why sometimes, you do not know why, but you behave in a certain, unwise manner.

He wanted to make David a fool, weakling, and coward, in order to be able to kill him very easily.

There are charms working and there are pronouncements working. You see a good man suddenly begin to act crazy. Out of the blue, he just tells his wife, “Pack! I don’t want to see you in this house anymore.”

But, three months later, he regrettably says, “I don’t know what took over me.” The way people behave, you wonder. That was what Goliath was trying to do to David.

Many people have been deprived by the force of enchantment. Could it be that you have been prevented from having, from becoming, from doing, and from achieving what you should by enchantments, charms, incantations, witchcraft, and wizardry?

*Words of wisdom:* Goliath is a spirit, if you don’t kill it, it will kill you.

*Prayer/ confession:* Every force of enchantment working against my life, In the name of Jesus, die by fire. Amen.

Mapeza Blames Poor Officiating For Telekom Cup Loss

Chippa United coach Norman Mapeza says the referee was a bit harsh on them in the Telkom Knockout quarterfinal loss to Mamelodi Sundowns on Sunday.

Chippa crashed out of the tournament after losing 4-3 on penalties and also finished the game with ten men following Tercious Malepe’s red card in the extra-time.

Mapeza believes the expulsion plus a couple of yellow cards for his players was too harsh, but there was nothing the team will do about it.

In a post-match interview with SuperSport TV, the Zimbabwean gaffer said: “I think the referee was a little bit harsh on us but at the end of the day I’m still new here.

“I don’t want to talk much about the referees, I don’t know how they operate, so it’s unfortunate to end up getting those six yellow cards, definitely it’s going to affect us in our next few matches but you know it has happened and there’s nothing we can do.”

The result handed Mapeza’s second defeat since taking over at the South African club last month.

Bosso Gaffer Blasts Dembare Players

Highlanders coach Hendrik Pieter de Jongh has blasted Dynamos’ dirty tricks just moments before their league meeting started at Rufaro Stadium on Sunday.

Bosso players and staff spent 35 minutes outside the venue as the gates were still closed and had to scale the fence into the supporters’ zone to gain access into the stadium.

“How is it possible that we had to spend 35 minutes out of the stadium,” De Jongh told Soccer 24.

“I have never seen that in my life, it’s a lack of organisation. It’s not possible that you stay 35 minutes outside the stadium and the gates are not opened.”

The gaffer also slammed the condition of the pitch at Rufaro Stadium which had patches of mud due to the heavy rains which poured on the previous day.

“Football is for the fans and has to be played on good ground, on a good pitch,” he said.

“This pitch is so bad and it doesn’t make it possible for good football.”

The visitors surged ahead in the 71st minute after Tinashe Makanda slotted home a low shot. Dynamos replied ten minutes later through Evans Katema’s header as it ended 1-1.

Homeless drug addict joins Central Baptist Church after receiving Christ

A homeless drug addict who broke into an Arkansas church and vandalized $100,000 worth of property was baptized at the same congregation six months later – all because the staff and church members displayed grace and got him much-needed help.

Brenton Winn, 23, was arrested in February after breaking into Central Baptist Church of Conway, Ark., and destroying $100,000 in church property. He threw the soundboard over the worship center balcony.

 He set part of the family life center on fire. He destroyed laptops. At the time, the church’s senior pastor, Don Chandler, told KTHV it was “about as messy of vandalism as you could possibly imagine.”

Winn, who was homeless and high on drugs, faced multiple charges and seemed destined for years behind bars.
But Chandler, while meeting with the prosecutor, chose to extend grace, according to Baptist Press.

 Chandler wanted Winn to get help.
“You can't preach something for 50 years without practicing it, especially in front of your whole church,” Chandler told Baptist Press. “Had we not shown some grace to him, everything we've talked about and encouraged, would have gone by the wayside. It was simply the right thing to do.

 This was not a hardened criminal. This was a young man who had made some mistakes. He was on drugs and alcohol when he did what he did. But he was redeemable.”

The judge gave Winn an option: Face up to 20 years in prison or voluntarily enter a 12-month rehab and recovery program run by a Christian-based ministry, Renewal Ranch. Winner chose the latter, Baptist Press reported.

Top American singer receives Christ?

As Christian communities light up in dialogue over Kanye West’s conversion and recent album, the rapper opened up about his faith journey in a recent interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music’s Beats 1.

“This is such a win for the Kingdom,” Kanye said, according to Faithwire . “For Kanye to come back home, from going from ‘Jesus Walks’ to ‘I Love It’, to say to God, ‘I tried it my way, it’s not working out. Everything is in shambles. I’m ending up in debt, making this money but still ending up in debt.

 My public standing is in shambles. I’m not in good shape. I’m having ups and downs with my health. People calling me crazy. People not wanting to sit with me. I had to just give it up to God.”

West recently moved to a ranch in Wyoming with his family. When Lowe asked him what he hopes the ranch will be in 20 years, West acknowledged that he didn’t know, that God would give him direction.

“I have some visions,” he said, “but the more that I’m in service to God, I just clear my head and wake up more empty every day and let God do the driving and just use me as he may. You make plans, and God laughs.”

Other the past year, West has slowly changed after his conversion last April, becoming more at peace with God and seeking Him in his work. He recently committed to abandoning secular music and pledged to only make gospel music.

The Preacher's Sincere Talk

Renewal of the mind by the presence and power of God in us-Romans 12:2

The mind is like a computer with a memory card which keeps all the information. Some of these informations (words) contains viruses. The spirit of God in us is antivirus system to remove all the viruses in our mind.

Some of the informations (words) which contains virus on the memory card in our mind are hatred, envy, pretence, bitterness, anger,  selfishness, pride, arrogance, insulting, hypocrisy and all negative issues rooted in the memory card of our mind.

NB: The God-spirit in us is responsible to infuse our individual lives with the God-like nature of love, peace, unity, compassion, wisdom and health.

No Need To Be Afraid

"And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

 Romans 8:28"
Devotion : The Apostle Paul uses the subject pronoun "we"; who was he referring to? He was referring to God, the Apostles, and all who are mature in Christ Jesus.

 Those who are mature in Christ come to this conclusion that all things have worked together for their good.

If you want to be part of the "we" as a child of God, what you must do is to love God, find the purpose for which He has called you, and execute it. Faith without works is dead, James 2:17.

Hence any child of God who says he/she loves God but is not doing the works of God or fulfilling the purpose of God is missing out. Such people will not have all things working together for their good. As you begin this new month, it is not too late to become part of the "we" so that the heavens, the earth, and the things therein will work together for your good.

Be blessed in this month so that you can end the year on a good note.

A lady was driving along with her father. They came upon a storm, and the young lady asked her father, What should I do?"
He said "keep driving"..

Cars began to pull over to the side, the storm was getting worse.
"What should I do."

The young lady asked?
"Keep driving," her father replied.
On up a few feet, she noticed that eighteen wheelers were also pulling over.

She told her dad, "I must pull over, I can barely see ahead. It is terrible, and everyone is pulling over!"
Her father told her, "Don't give up, just keep driving!"
Now the storm was terrible, but she never stopped driving, and soon she could see a little more clearly.

 After a couple of miles she was again on dry land, and the sun came out.
Her father said, "Now you can pull over and get out."
She said "But why now?"

He said "When you get out, look back at all the people that gave up and are still in the storm, because you never gave up, your storm is now over.

This is a testimony for anyone who is going through "hard times".
Just because everyone else, even the strongest, gives up.
You don't have to...if you keep going, soon your storm will be over and the sun will shine upon your face again.

This story touched me!
I hope it touched you!
Feel free to pass it on to some people you know.
Tell them:"Never give up, because GOD will never give up on you.

◆Still there are times when He will not keep you out of prison, but, like Joseph, He will shower you with immeasurable favour in the prison walls.

◆And there are times when He will not take the cup away but, like Jesus, will give you the strength to drink from the cup.

We can't stop anyone from following Satanic  cults and their founders.

 Scriptures must be fulfilled.

2 Thessalonians 2:9-12 TPT
The presence of the "outlaw" is apparent by the activity of Satan, who uses all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs, spurious wonders, [10] and every form of evil deception in order to deceive those who are perishing because they rejected the love of the truth that would lead them to being saved. [11] Because of this, God sends them a powerful delusion that leads them to believe what is false. [12] So then all who found their pleasure in unrighteousness and did not believe the truth will be judged.

No matter what we say concerning some impostors & scammers on pulpit using the Bible and the name of JESUS CHRIST to deceive souls, some people will follow them. Let's focus on changing our own individual lives by the presence and power of God in us for our own benefits.

If you know a man or woman is not doing the right thing in ministry as a Preacher and you don't belong to this ministry, preaching and teaching against him or her will not make them repent. Such people have sold their hearts and minds to do be used by powers to darkness.

We cannot change and force anyone following impostors, scammers, thieves using the BIBLE and the name of JESUS CHRIST for all kinds of fake things in MINISTRY, we can only pray and hope the souls will know the TRUTH and stop following them.
Life is a choice!

GRACE !

T“Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.” (Heb. 4:16)

In John 5:5 the man at the pool of Bethesda had an infirmity for thirty-eight years. But Ps. 34:19 said the LORD delivers the righteous from all infirmities.

Many people could have done many things to succeed, but the thing is that when grace is not available, one acts senselessly.

Grace came in John 5:6. Jesus went straight to the man with infirmity. “Will you be made whole?” He asked the man.

The man said in John 5:7, “Sir, I have no man.” When grace is not available, you begin to look for man. The thing about man is that man does not respond to man, unless he is prompted by grace.

Jesus said to the man in John 5:8, “Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.” In verse 9, the man got up. But in verse 10, the Jews said to the man, “It is the Sabbath day: it is not lawful for thee to carry thy bed.”

 Can you believe it? I expected them to rejoice with the man in thanksgiving, but no, they were angry.

Those who thought you would sit by the pool with nobody to help you for the rest of your life are in for a surprise.

Grace has come to release you from wherever they locked you.

Words of Wisdom: No one can stop grace.  When grace is at work, even inanimate objects work for you.

Prayers/Confession: Father, for the remaining part of this year, send grace in the form of human beings to take me to my destined place, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

MERCY AND GRACE

“Let us therefore
 come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.” (Heb. 4:16)

Mercy is God not allowing the judgment that you deserve to come on you. Mercy is God’s instrument for stopping judgment.

Grace has many meanings, but let it suffice here that grace is when God allows you to enjoy the favour that you don’t deserve.

Romans 3:23 says, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” But Eph. 2:8 says, “For by grace are ye saved through faith.”

Grace begins at the point that you accept Christ as your LORD and personal Saviour.

No one is qualified to have salvation or to go to heaven on his or her own. Salvage on and heaven are a favour that God allows us to enjoy free of charge.

If you don’t know Jesus as your personal LORD and Saviour, you have not experienced grace. You know nothing about grace.

If you must enjoy grace, you must first experience salvation.
Grace has a way of making you a positively different person.

The redemption that came through Christ Jesus justifies us through His grace. (Romans 3:24.)

God will give you that blessing that will change the course of your life because that is what I pray for you.

Grace is Gods ability to give you that which you do not deserve.

*Words of Wisdom:* The experience of grace changes life situations

*Confession/Prayers:* Oh Lord, I receive exceeding grace. It will follow me all the days of my life. Father let Your grace change my life completely and give me undeserved blessings, in Jesus’ name, Amen!

Bethesda is the name of a place in John 5. Bethesda means the house of mercy. The five entrances to Bethesda speak of grace. Mercy and grace met at a place.

Mercy and grace are like twins that work together. Wherever you find mercy, you find grace. When mercy leaves, grace disappears.

John 5:1, says “An angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water.”

The first person that stepped into the water after it was troubled was made whole of his or her sickness. The waters that have troubled you, the angel of the LORD has come down to trouble it.

Joseph was in the eleventh position but became first because of Manasseh, which means to forget the past. When you forget the past, you become fruitful. Ephraim means to become fruitful.

Angels are taking care of the reasons you have not been unable to get pregnant; gain admission into school and, promotion at work, get out of that debt.

God has removed what made you a laughingstock and put laughter in your mouth. Yes, you will carry your baby. You will see miracles. You will see the hand of God in your life.

Words of Wisdom: Mercy and grace are twins that work together

Prayer/Confession: Open doors are waiting for me. Grace is waiting for me and will carry me on eagle’s wings. I will fly when others are walking, in Jesus’ name, Amen!

Tendai Ndoro :Getting Better With Age Like Wine

Zimbabwean striker Tendai Ndoro provided a goal and an assist for Highlands Park in  ensuring that his fellow country man, Chippa United coach Norman Mapeza, suffered his first defeat in the ABSA Premiership when the two sides met last night.

Highlands Park won the game 2-0 at the Makhulong Stadium to move to 4th on the table, a point adrift of Bidvest Wits.

Ndoro also provided the assist for the first goal, cutting back for Spiwe Msimango to finish in the 18th minute.

His half volley in the 67th minute bounced and deceived the Chippa United goalkeeper into the back of the net to double Highlands Park’s advantage.

The Chilli Boys are still the only team yet to win a single game in the ABSA Premiership this season and are bottom placed with a paltry four points from nine matches.
