PUT YOUR MIND ON A HIGHER LEVEL

2 Corinthians 4:18; "While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.

You are a spirit being; the spirit has its inner senses. But most people's inner senses are untrained.

So most use their five senses in this earth realm. Because that's how they have been trained to use their natural senses. That limits you. Don't live your life to the limits of your natural senses. God tells us,  that there is more than the human senses can comprehend.

  Acts 2:17; "And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God,  I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:"

When He said the young men shall see visions,  He was talking about seeing beyond the ordinary; the ability to see with and from your spirit,  which contains your inner senses. What you see at this realm, the natural man calls invisible. David is a good example.  He was very sure he could take Goliath down,  even though others were afraid of him. He saw through the Word that Goliath couldn't defeat the armies of Israel. (1 Samuel 17:26). He saw what others couldn't see.

He saw things with spiritual vision. Things that are obvious to the natural eyes,  have no foundation. Train yourself to  look higher than this world.  See by the Spirit at a higher level.

 The eyes of your understanding are full of light, causing you to see the invisible and energizing you for the impossible
 You see glory,  victory and prosperity.
                Hallelujah!!!

Exercises That Are Safe During Pregnancy

Zimbabwe Online Health Centre

Credit :WebMD

Maintaining a regular exercise routine throughout your pregnancy can help you stay healthy and feel your best.

 Regular
exercise during pregnancy can improve your posture and decrease some common discomforts such as backaches and fatigue .

 There is evidence that
physical activity may prevent gestational diabetes (diabetes that develops during pregnancy), relieve stress, and build more stamina needed for labor and delivery.

If you were physically active before your pregnancy, you should be able to continue your activity in moderation.

Don't try to exercise at your former level; instead, do what's most comfortable for you now. Low impact aerobics are encouraged versus high impact.

The pregnant competitive athlete should be closely followed by an obstetrician .

If you have never exercised regularly before, you can safely begin an exercise program during pregnancy after consulting with your health care provider, but do not try a new, strenuous activity. Walking is considered safe to initiate when pregnant.

The American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology recommends 30 minutes or more of moderate exercise per day on most if not all days of the week, unless you have a medical or pregnancy complication.

Who Should Not Exercise During Pregnancy?

If you have a medical problem, such as
asthma, heart disease, or diabetes , exercise may not be advisable.

 Exercise may also be harmful if you have a pregnancy-related condition such as:
Bleeding or spotting
Low placenta
Threatened or recurrent miscarriage
Previous premature births or history of early labor
Weak cervix
Talk with your health care provider before beginning an exercise program.

 Your health care provider can also give you personal exercise guidelines, based on your medical history.

What Exercises Are Safe During Pregnancy?

Most exercises are safe to perform during pregnancy, as long as you exercise with caution and do not overdo it.

The safest and most productive activities are swimming , brisk walking, indoor stationary cycling, step or elliptical machines, and low-impact aerobics (taught by a certified aerobics instructor). These activities carry little risk of injury, benefit your entire body, and can be continued until birth.

Tennis and racquetball are generally safe activities, but changes in balance during pregnancy may affect rapid movements.

 Other activities such as jogging can be done in moderation, especially if you were doing them before your pregnancy. You may want to choose exercises or activities that do not require great balance or coordination, especially later in pregnancy.
To learn strength and toning exercises that are safe to do during pregnancy, see
Sample Exercises .

What Exercises Should Be Avoided During Pregnancy?
There are certain exercises and activities that can be harmful if performed during pregnancy.

They include:
Holding your breath during any activity.
Activities where falling is likely (such as skiing and horseback riding).

Contact sports such as softball, football, basketball, and volleyball.

Any exercise that may cause even mild abdominal trauma such as activities that include jarring motions or rapid changes in direction.

Activities that require extensive jumping, hopping, skipping, bouncing, or running.

Deep knee bends, full sit-ups, double leg raises, and straight-leg toe touches.
Bouncing while stretching.

Waist-twisting movements while standing.

Heavy exercise spurts followed by long periods of no activity.
Exercise in hot, humid weather.

Deep Roots

You can’t find firm footing in a swamp, but life rooted in God stands firm.
Proverbs 12:3, MSG

TODAY'S WORD:
When the ground is saturated, even a big sturdy oak tree with an extensive root system that extends beyond its canopy can be blown over by high winds.

 That’s because most of its roots are less than twelve inches deep and don’t have anything to anchor to.

It’s the same principle in life.

 We all have things that come against us—a medical issue, a business downturn, a child gets in trouble. What’s going to determine whether or not you stand strong and outlast these storms is the depth of your roots.

The reason some people are always upset, offended, and discouraged is that they only have surface roots. They’re moved by what somebody said or did or something unfair. They’re always being tossed to and fro. But when you have deep roots, when you know that God is in control, you’re not moved by what doesn’t go your way. The winds may blow, but you’re still standing.

PRAYER FOR TODAY:
“Father, thank You for giving me the promise that because my roots are in You, I will not be moved.

 Help me to sink my roots of faith deeper in You and trust in Your faithfulness. I declare that I am strong in You and in the power of Your might. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”

Be a peacemaker

“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.”
Matthew 5:9, NIV

TODAY'S WORD:
It’s easy think, If my coworker wasn’t so disrespectful, I wouldn’t argue.

 No, you have to be the bigger person. Just because they’re doing wrong doesn’t mean you have to engage.

 That’s the enemy baiting you, saying, “Argue, fight, set the record straight, prove you’re right.” Don’t take the bait. It takes a mature person to overlook an insult and say, “No, I’m staying in peace.”

Jesus didn’t say, “Blessed are those who are right.” For the sake of peace, sometimes you have to let the other person think they’re right, even when you know they’re wrong. We think, I’m right, and I’m going to prove it and win this fight.

 Can we tell you that being right is overrated? You can win every battle, prove your points, but your relationships are being damaged.

 Put your ego down and let them be right even though you think you’re right. Be a peacemaker and learn to shake it off and move on.

PRAYER FOR TODAY:
“Father, thank You for the promise of blessedness when I take the high road and am a peacemaker.

 Give me wisdom to know when to keep my mouth closed and overlook something that bothers me.

 I believe that walking in peace is Your will for me. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”

Be a blessing to people around you

The word blessing comes from the word bless and when we say you are a blessing means you bring joy to the people who are around you. Your presences in the lives of thy people, joy will never depart from them.
But it is too painful to do what is called a blessing to others since you must please God also but as well as the people around us.
2 Corinthians 8:21
[21]Providing for honest things, not only in the sight of the Lord, but also in the sight of men....NIV says
For we are taking Pain to do what is right, not only in the eyes of the Lord but also in the eyes of men.
These words were said by Aposle Paul to the corinthian church and l think it teaches us:

1. For we are taking Pain to do what is right...... This shows to do what is right is painful. Activities which are said to be right are painful. To be faithful to God and man is so painful. To be honest is not that easy but painful. This shows us that to be a blessing is painful.

2. not only in the eyes of the Lord but also in the eyes of men.....We have believers who act good at the church but back home they are a problem. The way you know God must be a benefit to you Husband, wife, children, sisters and brothers, communite, work mates and any one close to you.

Genesis 39:4
[4]And Joseph found grace in his sight, and he served him: and he made him overseer over his house, and all that he had he put into his hand.

The God you worship and pray can be proved to be a good God if you are able to be a blessing to people around favour of God elevate you.

1 Samuel 2:26
[26]And the child Samuel grew on, and was in favour both with the LORD, and also with men.

To be a blessing to people around you God rewards you with great Favour as well as the people around you.

Since a blessing and curse are word that oppose each other and the are a result of pronounce from both man and God. Other people are cursed because they are sour to people as well as to God.

Luke 17:1
[1]Then said he unto the disciples, It is impossible but that offences will come: but woe unto him, through whom they come!
Refuse to be Judas, to be a sin carrier to people around you for life will be a curse.

Be a blessing to people around you.

Appearances can be deceptive

Matthew 6:2-"So when you give something to a needy person, do not make a big show of it, as the hypocrites do in the houses of worship and on the streets. They do it so that people will praise them. I assure you, they have already been paid in full.
18-Then no one will notice that you are fasting, except your Father, who knows what you do in private. And your Father, who sees everything, will reward you.

Matthew 7:15-Watch out for false prophets! They dress up like sheep, but inside they are wolves who have come to attack you.

Jesus warned about appearances.
Call it pictures, images good PR  ,branding etc impressions given either in pictures or acting .

He places focus on the Father and the heart .

Some are too particular about how they present their prayer lives ,church ministry, evangelism etc before the world
Fliers and branding more than what is actually done .
Men must see what we are doing .
They must know we are changing lives etc

That script isn’t crafted by Jesus .

Why burn energy to please men in a vocation which requires undivided loyalty to Christ .

That said .

Generally things  aren’t usually what they appear to be in pictures and impressions.

A smile Before cameras oftentimes is doctored ,disguised ,dummied .
Worship isn’t for cameras
Prayer and devotion .

Just as many other things .

A back to back account in the Old Testament is very instructive.

Two men whom God had  refused didn’t appear so in pictures.
Or Videos .

1 Samuel 15:30 KJV
[30] Then he said, I have sinned: yet honour me now, I pray thee, before the elders of my people, and before Israel, and turn again with me, that I may worship the Lord thy God.

Before men !
That’s what mattered to him,

The very next chapter..

1 Samuel 16:6-7 KJV
[6] And it came to pass, when they were come, that he looked on Eliab, and said, Surely the Lord's anointed is before him. [7] But the Lord said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart.

Before men ,videos,Instagram,YouTube ,great picture outlook ,he’s the lord’s anointed.
Before God, he’s rejected .

What will eventually matter will be the latter .

Hence ,doing men’s bidding at the expense of Gods approval is a wrong voyage .

May God grant us understanding.

Love Yourself


“…Love your neighbor as yourself.”
Matthew 22:39, NIV

TODAY'S WORD:
Jesus said that if you don’t love yourself in a healthy way, you will never be able to love others in the way that you should. This is why some people don’t have good relationships. If you don’t get along with yourself, you’ll never get along with others.

We all have weaknesses, shortcomings, and things that we wish were different. But if you see yourself as less than, not talented, and not valuable, you will become exactly that. If you feel unattractive on the inside, you will convey feelings of unattractiveness.

 That’s going to push people away. You carry yourself the way you see yourself.

People see you the way you see yourself.

Perhaps if you quit focusing on your flaws and start loving yourself in a healthy way, being proud of who God made you to be, then as you send out these different messages, it’s going to bring new opportunities, new relationships, and new levels of God’s favor.

PRAYER FOR TODAY:

“Father, thank You for uniquely designing me with gifts, talents, and abilities to enjoy life and accomplish Your will. Help me to love myself with all my weaknesses, shortcomings, and things I wish were different. I celebrate who I am. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”

Power in the name of Jesus Christ

“Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the Lord our God.” Psalm 20:7 (KJV)

Forgetfulness can be dangerous in our relationship with God. Any time the Israelites forgot the name of God, they went into idol worship. No wonder God warned them not to mingle with the heathen nations around them. The name of the LORD is so powerful that the righteous run to it and are safe (Proverbs 18:10).

 In this dispensation, He has revealed Himself in the person of our Lord Jesus Christ. He has given us His name to use. Therefore, if you are born again, the name of Jesus Christ becomes yours.

 Use it to get answers to your problems; it is a name that is above every name. At the mention of the name of Jesus, all devils and demons bow, including every ailing situation (Philippians 2:10–11).

 Remember to adore this name and use it to overcome all your challenges. Hallelujah! Be an overcomer!

Prayer Point: Dear Lord, let me never forget your name. In Jesus Name.  Amen!!

Power of God's word

Matthew 24:35; "Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away."

 There are people who work for the Lord,  giving their time, energy,  resources and they begin to think it's not yielding any results in their lives. They look at their lives and think they are not making progress. You should never allow those thoughts to enter your heart.

The results of your labor of love may not be obvious to you, but other people are being impacted by it. Many prophets didn't see the results of their prophecies.

 Many people thought the prophecies of the prophets were false. Because some of the prophets lived and died and their prophecies were not fulfilled. The truth is that some of those prophets were not speaking of their days.  Acts 2:17; "And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God,  I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream  dreams:" Those who were alive at this time,  didn't know what the last days were.

 They may have considered Joel's prophecy as false. But that prophecy was fulfilled.  Acts 2;1-4 says that the apostles were all sitting in one place, in one accord and suddenly there was a sound from heaven as a mighty wind and it filled all the house where they were sitting and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost. It was many years before the prophecy came to pass.

The Spirit alerted Peter,  who confirmed it. (Acts 2:16). You must never think your service in the Lord and the Gospel is worthless. The results are there.

 Those you have yet to see will happen. Remain focused and fervent serving the Lord. His Word is forevermore and true and never fails. His Word is settled in heaven forever.
        Hallelujah!!!

African Soccer Star Walks Off The Pitch Following Racist Attacks

 Moussa Marega walked off the pitch nine minutes after scoring for his Porto side’s in a  2-1 win at Vitoria Guimaraes on Sunday -in protest at racist abuse from the home fans.

The forward netted the winning goal on the hour mark but a section of Guimaraes supporters shouted provocative chants towards the 28-year old Mali international.

The abuse is reported to have started during the warm-up and throughout the game, but it got worse after Porto’s second goal.

Marega then signalled to be subbed off with team-mates, his coach and opposition players trying to persuade him to stay on but he refused.

As he walked to the tunnel, boos were heard and the player responded by pointing his thumbs down and also raised his middle fingers to the crowd.

I Am No Messiah:Warriors Coach Logarusic


Warriors coach Zdravko Logarušić admits he has tough assignment but believes he is the right man for the job.

Speaking at his unveiling as the head coach in the capital yesterday Loga as he is now known said he is no ‘Messiah’ but will do his best.

“I’ve spent my last 10 years in Africa and to be successful in Africa and to be successful first you have to respect the people, culture, their way of living, to respect how they are suffering in their lives and if you can do that you can work with them.

“I’m not Messiah I don’t know everything, I have something buy I have to take the best from you and we can put it together to create something.

“I’ve been coach for about 15 years and I’ve been through different divisions and I was learning something which made me be the coach.

“I will not talk much but you will see how I talk in the field because the players play in the signature of the coach, “he said.

As Warriors prepare for their back to back encounter against Algeria in the AFCON qualifiers, Loga considers himself lucky since most players are in action.

He said that Zimbabwe has a chance to qualify for both the 2021 AFCON Finals and 2022 FIFA World Cup as it has the quality players who are regulars at their clubs.

“I’m lucky and I think God is protecting me because most Zimbabwean players are in Europe and in South Africa, the play competitive games and most of them are the right age to play nice football.

“Now we just have to put everything together to create a good team, give me time I’m not a magician I’m just a coach and I will do it to make you happy.

“I will do it for myself and I’m on the right place to make success. I made mistakes in my career but I’m still learning, “he said.

Why he chose the Warriors, he said.
“I checked about Zimbabwe the place, the players and history and I couldn’t see the reason I shouldn’t come especially because of the players.

“You hear coaches who put money first but you can lose something on the small bridge but can get something bigger.

“It’s a challenge check national team players and I’m just really excited to start and I know I can do it, “he said.

The 55-year-old has asked for everyone support to achieve greater results.

“I want to thank the federation for the opportunity to be the head coach and I know to do this job I need proper support from technical support, players and the federation and the media.

“If we can support each other we can do it, not caring who is Algeria or Ghana.

“About Zimbabwe I have been following most of the news and players and some journalists. I tried to get as much information so that I can easily adapt here.

“And I’m happy for this opportunity and I will not disappoint and also don’t disappoint me,” he said.

Loga had been reported to have been fired from Sudan where he was the head coach but he denied those reports.

“I wasn’t fired, I worked till my contract expired. I don’t know where you got that information.

“We had a good relationship and when the time to say goodbye came, we did that, “he said.-H-Metro

I have read through the bible 60 times

A 99-year-old Tennessee church member who has read through the Bible 60 times recently embarked on her 61st journey through Scripture because, she says, “God shows me something new every time.”

The woman, known as “Miss Helen” to members of her congregation at The Church at Station Hill, in Spring Hill, Tenn., began reading through the Bible the 61st time after learning of a challenge by pastor Jay Strother, who urged church members to read through the Bible in one year.
The Baptist & Reflector recounted the inspiring story.

 The Bible-reading plan is part of Strother’s “The Whole Church in the Whole Word” challenge.

“I’ve been through the Bible 60 times and I might as well make it 61,” she told Strother.
The U.S. was embroiled in World War II the first time she read through the Bible. The challenge that year was “Read the Bible through in ’42.”

Miss Helen still attends the Sunday morning 8 a.m. service, in person, the Baptist & Reflector reported.

Strother asked her, “Miss Helen, why do you still do it?” She replied, “God shows me something new every time.”

“She said you’d think I’ve heard these stories, but every time I read it or hear it being read, I catch something new,” Strother told the Baptist & Reflector.

Miss Helen’s commitment to reading Scripture, Strother said, should convict and inspire other Christians to read their Bible.

“You could read the entire Bible through out loud in about 72 hours,” he said.

 “So in just a little more in the time that people usually watch TV – the typical American in two weeks – you could read the Bible through.”

Strother added, “So, it’s not that we don’t have the time, it’s that we don’t choose the time.”

More than 550 others signed up for the challenge after Miss Helen committed to read through the Bible again, Strother told the Baptist & Reflector.

Man Gives Glory To God After Finding Missing Toddler

A USPS worker is giving God the credit for being at the right place at the right time when he found a toddler who had been missing all night.

According to Christian Today , two-year-old Ethan Adeyemi disappeared from his home in Howard County, Maryland, around 10:20 pm last Wednesday night.

 He wandered barefoot along a Maryland highway the whole evening in only a sweatshirt and sweatpants.

Neighbors, K9 units, helicopters, drones, firefighters and police officers had been scouring the area for hours after the family reported him missing. But it was until Keith Rollins, the U.S. Postal worker who saw him at 8 AM, picked him up that he was safe.

Rollins was driving to work only a half-mile away from the child’s home when he saw him on the side of the road, according to WJZ in Baltimore.

“He had only a pair of sweatpants and sweatshirt, no shoes or socks,” said Rollins. “So I walked up to him. I said, ‘Hey, buddy. How you doing? What’s your name? Are you OK?’ He looked at me, but I didn’t get a response from him.”

The child was shivering, “wet to the bone and had no socks, no shoes.”

So Rollins “decided to scoop him up” and take him back to his truck.

“I had a sweater that I tried to cover him up with, and turned up the heat and I called the police back and said that I had the little boy in my vehicle, and within a matter of minutes, the police were there,” he said.

Adeyemi was rushed to the hospital for hypothermia after being found but remains in good condition.
Rollins doesn’t consider himself a hero.

“Giving glory to God that I was able to help at that particular time and be in the correct place at the right time,” he said. “[It] could’ve been a totally different story. He was blessed.”

Coronavirus: How To Reduce Risk Of Infection




Zimbabwe Online Health Centre

The Coronavirus is a crown shaped virus.

It affects both animals and humans and can be transmitted from animals to humans. Anyone anywhere can be infected by the virus. It infect people through coughing and sneezing, touching an infected person's hands or face or touching infected objects an infected person has touched. It is like all the other viruses that cause common cold and is common in winter.

Symptoms include a runny nose, headache, cough, sore throat, fever and a feeling of being unwell. In people with an immunocompromised immune system such as children, elderly, those with heart diseases they might develop respiratory tract infections such as pneumonia or bronchitis.

There are ways one can protect themselves from catching the virus. Prevention methods include: washing hands with soap and water or using a hand rub always. Avoid touching the eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.

 Avoid close contact with infected people. Those infected should also cover their nose, mouth when coughing.

No vaccine or treatment is available for Coronavirus. However if infected one needs plenty of rest, lots of fluids and manage the symptoms such as sore throat, fever. If there is a pneumonia or bronchitis one should also receive appropriate treatment for that respiratory tract infection.

Currently there is an outbreak in China and about 81 people reported dead.

 Because this is a communicable virus it spreads fast therefore always protect yourself and your community. Prevention is always better than cure.

Take care of your family

"If anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for his immediate family, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever." 1Tim.5.8

This verse is a direct attack on some Christians who neglect their duty of taking care of their families. You cannot make yourself a christian by claiming to be  one. Christianity is practical. It is how you live and what you do that makes you a christian.

No matter how much you may pay your tithes, care for the widows and orphans at your church, if you're neglecting your immediate family, the bible says you're worse than an unbeliever.

 Despite the economic hardships and financial challenges try as much as possible to provide for your family.

 No condition is given here. Whether you are in agreement or not, whether they are Christians or not, take good care of them otherwise you will be condemned to an unbelievers position.

Christianity is first reflected within your family just like it is said charity begins at home. It is the love and care you extend to your family that should overflow to other people in the church and beyond.

 Neglecting your family is just like denying Christ because the bible says you have denied the faith.

Take care of your family.

Celebrate Christ in you

John 1:14; "And the Word was made flesh,  and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory,  the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, ) full of grace and truth. "

John says Jesus was full of grace and reality. When you came to Jesus,  you were home. When you come to Jesus,  you are at home; you are fulfilled.

 He is peace personified; He is love, unfailing and perfect; He is joy indescribable; He is the embodiment of life and rest.

Matthew 11:28; "Come unto me,  all ye that labour and are heavy laden,  and I will give you rest."

 Quit struggling, stop your fear. Focus on Jesus, with His divine presence within you and around you.

Your advantage over the challenges and adversities of life. Celebrate Christ in you and your oneness with Him.

 Commit yourself to His Word. John 14:15; "If ye love me,  keep my commandments.

Women could be jailed for denying husbands s*x

Women who refuse their husbands sex could be charged for emotional abuse and when found guilty, jailed to a maximum of two years imprisonment or to a fine of 500 penalty units which is equivalent to GH¢6,000 or both.

Central Regional Coordinator of the Domestic Violence and Victim Support Unit (DOVVSU), Mr George Appiah-Sakyi who made this known has therefore called on husbands to report their wives to the police for the law to deal with them.

According to him, the law is also applicable to men who may deny their wives sex encouraging such emotionally abused women to also lodge complaints with the police.

At a sensitization workshop for leaders of churches in the Cape Coast Metropolis on terrorism and other security issues, the police chief stated emphatically these violations are grounded in law and amount to emotional abuse punishable under the Domestic Violence Act 732 of 2007.

“If your husbands refuse to eat your food and make you unhappy and causes you emotional pain, you can also report them to the police. If your husband comes home late and causes you to be unhappy you can make a case at DOVSSU”

He also stated that women who refuse to give sex to their husbands should equally be reported.

“If your wife wears  jeans to sleep and causing you emotional abuse it’s an offence and you can report her to DOVVSU,” he stated.

Crucial lessons. ..

A little boy put on his clothes for the cold and then told his father:

"Ok dad I'm ready"

His Dad, the pastor, said: "Ready for what?"

"Dad, it's time to go outside and distribute our flyers."

Dad replied: "Son, it's very cold outside and it's drizzling."

The child looked surprised at his father and said: "But dad, people need to know about God even on rainy days."

Dad replied, "Son, I'm not going outside in this weather."

With despair, the child said: "Dad, can I go alone? Please!"

His father waited for a moment and then said: "Son, you can go. Here's the flyers, be careful."

"Thank you dad!"

And with this, the son went out into the rain. The 11-Year-old walked all the streets of the village, handing out the flyers to the people he saw.

After 2 hours walking in the rain and in the cold and with his last flyer in his hand, he stopped in a corner to see if he saw someone to give the flyer too, but the streets were totally deserted. Then he turned to the first house he saw, walked to the front door, touched the bell several times and waited, but no one came out.

Finally the boy turned to leave, but something stopped him. The child turned back to the door and began to touch the bell and pound the door strongly with his knuckles. He kept waiting. Finally the door was opened gently.

A lady came out with a very sad look and gently asked:

"What can I do for you, son?
With radiant eyes and a bright smile the child said:

"Lady, I'm sorry if I upset you, but I just want to tell you that God really loves you and that I came to give you my last flyer, which talks about God and His great love

The boy then gave her the flyer.

She just said, "Thank you, son, God bless you!"

Well, next Sunday morning, the pastor was in the pulpit and when the service began he asked:

"Someone has a testimony or something they want to share?"

Gently, in the back row of the church, an older lady stood up. When she started talking, a radiant and glorious look sprouted from her eyes:

"Nobody in this church knows me. I have never been here, even last Sunday I was not Christian.

My husband died a while ago leaving me totally alone in this world. Last Sunday was a particularly cold and rainy day, and it was also in my heart; that on that day I came to the end of the road, since I had no hope and didn't want to live anymore.

Then I took a chair and a rope and went up to the attic of my house. I tied and one end of the rope to the rafters of the roof; then I climbed onto the chair and put the other end of the rope around my neck.

I then stood on the chair, so alone and heartbroken, I was about to throw myself off the chair, when suddenly I heard the loud sound of the door being knocked.

So I thought: "I'll wait for a minute and whoever it is will go"

I waited and waited, but the door knocking was getting louder and louder every time. It got so loud that I couldn't ignore it anymore.

So I wondered, who could it be?
No one ever comes close to my door or come to visit me!
I released the rope from my neck and went to the door, while the bell was still ringing and the door was still being knocked on.

When I opened the door, I couldn't believe what my eyes saw, in front of my door was the most radiant and angelic child I've ever seen.

He's smile, ohhh, I can never describe it! The words that came out of his mouth made my heart, dead so long ago, come back to life, when he said with the VOICE OF CHERUB: "Lady, I just want to tell you that God really loves you"

"When the little angel disappeared between the cold and the rain, I closed my door and read every word of the flyer.
Then I went to the attic to remove the chair and rope.

I didn't need them anymore. As you see. Now I am a happy daughter of the King.

As the direction of the boy, when he left, was to this church, I came personally say thank you to that little angel of God who came just in time and, in fact, to rescue my life from an eternity in hell. And replaced it with an eternity in God's presence. "

Everyone cried in the church.

The Pastor came down from the pulpit to the first bench of the front, where the little angel was sitting; he took his son in his arms and cried uncontrollably.

Don't let this message die of cold; after reading it, pass it on to others.

Remember, God's message can make a big difference in someone's life, never be afraid to spread it.

Carry God’s word with you


In Scripture, prayer is our response to God’s revelation, the human answer to divine speech.

 We can address God only because God has first addressed us — in creation, certainly, but especially in his word.

Hence, the Bible’s book of prayers begins with an exhortation to meditation God’s word (Psalm 1:2). The praises, laments, and confessions that follow are all the fruit of delighting “in the law of the Lord” and meditating upon it “day and night.”

 The psalmists, having breathed in God’s word, cannot help but breathe out prayer.

The Second Touch


Then Jesus placed his hands on the man’s eyes again, and his eyes were opened.

His sight was completely restored, and he could see everything clearly.
Mark 8:25, NLT

In the Scripture, some people brought a blind man to Jesus.
 You can imagine how thrilled he was when Jesus opened his eyes, but everything was out of focus.

 Having blurry sight was far better than no sight, and that could have been the end of the story. But then Jesus touched his eyes a second time, and his eyes were completely healed.

Many of us have seen God’s goodness.

We’re grateful that He’s made us a whole lot better and gotten us to where we are, although we haven’t accomplished our dreams. But too often, we settle for less than God’s best. God is not satisfied with mediocrity. He has a second touch coming your way where He amazes you with His goodness.

Don’t be satisfied with better. Be grateful for what God has done, but keep your faith stirred up for the fullness of what you’re believing for. What He started in your life, He’s going to complete.

PRAYER FOR TODAY:
“Father, thank You for Your goodness and helping me get to where I am.

 Thank You for being the God of second touches. I open myself to all You have for my future. I declare that I haven’t seen anything yet because You will amaze me with Your goodness. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”

Are You Being Persecuted?

“He hath also prepared for him the instruments of death; he ordaineth his arrows against the persecutors.” Psalm 7:13 (KJV)

Life is a mystery, and it emanates from God.

The life of mankind started in the Garden of Eden, where only joy, fruitfulness, and perfection existed. It wasn’t long, however, before sin came in and ruined the wonderful life that God created for mankind.

 The entrance of sin led to pain, decay, sickness, persecution, and eventually death. The Christian life also has many challenges, afflictions, persecutions, etc.

 Therefore, do not be surprised if you are suffering from any of these. But meditate on the opening scripture and ask for God’s intervention when you are being persecuted.

 He has prepared instruments of death, or deadly weapons and arrows, to punish your persecutors. Dear beloved, this should trigger you to celebrate the Lord (Psalm 21:13). Just hand over your persecutors to the Lord, and He will deal with them to give you the freedom and peace that you so much desire. Hallelujah! You are an overcomer!

Prayer Point: Dear Lord, I hand over all my persecutors to you. Thank you for defeating them for us.  In Jesus Name.
Amen!!!!

JESUS IS GOD IN THE FLESH

John 1:1-4; 1. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2. The same was in the beginning with God. 3. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4. In him was life; and the life was the light of men."

 When you study the Bible, you will be enthusiastic to discover who Jesus truly is.  When He walked the Earth, He looked as an ordinary man, but He was Himself, God.

 Jesus was the God who spoke to Moses in the burning bush; He was the One that called Abraham out of Haran; He was the One that stood before Moses and said, "Take your shoes off your feet for where you are standing is holy." Exodus 3:5. Jesus was God in a human body,  but the people didn't know.

 Many people may ask "Why is He called the Son of God if He is Himself God?" They ask that question because they don't understand the true meaning of the expression,  "Son of God. "

 "Son of God " doesn't mean one that is born of God, it means God in a human body. He was the One that said to Moses, "Your fathers,  Abraham, Isaac and Jacob knew me as El Shaddai, but I'm Jehovah."
(Exodus 6:3). Now you can understand why His Name is all power.

That seemingly ordinary man of Galilee was actually God Almighty, walking the streets of Israel. Jesus is the incarnate Word.

(John 1:10-11). The Apostle Paul tells us that in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily. (Colossians 2:9).

 He is the complete embodiment of  Deity; He is the Most High God; the King of kings and Lord of lords and He alone is worthy of all praise, worship and adoration.  Hallelujah!!!

Why I Chose To Join Dembare:Nadolo


DYNAMOS new signing, King Nadolo, believes the team will give him opportunities in his career compared to other local clubs.

The forward was on the wish list of a number of Premiership clubs but chose DeMbare for a reason, among others, he referred to as ‘career opportunities’.

The Soccer Star of the Year finalist became the most sought-after player after his exploits with relegated TelOne last season.
“I had a lot to consider before joining Dynamos.

 I considered career opportunities as well as my family and friends. My management and everyone around me saw Dynamos as the best club for me to be,” said Nadolo.

Nadolo, whose arrival has described as a big deal for DeMbare, says he thinks the Harare giants are a perfect club for him now.

He signed a one-year-deal with a possible extension at the end of the season.H-Metro

Kaizer Chiefs Banned From Registering New Players

Kaizer Chiefs have been banned by FIFA from registering new players for two transfer windows, according to South African media reports.

The sanction is emanating from the transfer dispute of Madagascan international, Andriamirado Andrianarimanana in 2018.

Amakhosi signed the player on a “free transfer” after the midfielder claimed that he had no contract with Fosa Junior.

Fosa, however, refused to release the player until the matter was taken to Fifa who ruled in favour of Chiefs after the Madagascan club failed to prove they have a valid contract with the player.

But things have taken a dramatic turn and the world football body now says the South African side was wrong.

A decision to ban the Soweto giants from signing new players for the next two windows has been made.

Andrianarimanana who is now with Black Leopards is also found guilty of false presentation and will be barred from playing football for four months.

Chiefs have 21 days to appeal a sentence at the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

Power of prayer brought me back to life

A United Kingdom pastor says it was the power of prayer that brought him back to life after he was dead for 15 minutes.

According to CBN News, Christopher Wickland, pastor of Living Word Pentecostal Church in Fareham, Hampshire, died in November.

He had been jumping on a trampoline at a trampoline park with three of his children when he collapsed.
Wickland, 47, was administered CPR and staff at the trampoline park also used a defibrillator four times on him. He stopped breathing for 15 minutes.

When his heart restarted, he was taken to the intensive care unit of St. Mary's Hospital.

Doctors told Wickland’s wife that because his heart stopped for so long, they were worried about brain and heart damage.

Wickland’s wife, Tracey, posted about the news to her Facebook page.

"I put it on Facebook and it was amazing because hundreds of people from around the world contacted me and told me they were praying for Chris," she told The Daily Mail, adding that while the jump park staff and doctors did an "incredible job," her husband would be dead "if it wasn't for all these people praying.”

Wickland spent almost 48 hours in an induced coma. He woke up on a Sunday morning during the church’s morning services.

"This is a miracle that is all down to divine providence and the very quick actions of some people," Wickland told The Daily Mail.

 "My congregation and other Christians around the world were also praying for me. All this power was harnessed to keep me alive. I'm not lucky, I'm blessed."

Wickland said doctors told him there’s nothing wrong with him even though he stopped breathing.

“They can't believe that I died for so long and there's no permanent damage,” he said, calling the ordeal “nothing short of a miracle.”

He has returned to his preaching duties.

Principal Donates Kidney To Pupil's Dad

School principal Sarah Schecter didn’t imagine spending her winter break in the hospital; much less, waking up to the prospect “giddy.”

 But when she heard that a father of three children at her school needed a kidney, she couldn’t shake the thought of donating her own.

“I know this sounds weird, because I’m not the type of person who hears the voice of God, but I just felt called to give him my kidney,” she said to the Dallas Morning News.

“I did not want to; it was not on my list of things to do. So, I just kept thinking that someone else would give him a kidney, and that it would work out. … But it kept being on my heart, that I was the person to do it.”

It all started when Nate Jones, father of three students at Oakridge School in Arlington, Texas, noticed his vision declining.

After a visit to the eye doctor, he was referred to a specialist, who “looked at my situation and said, first thing, ‘How long have you had hypertension?’” Jones said. “Of course, I’d never been diagnosed. Mind you, I didn’t have any symptoms. In fact, the night before I went to see the eye doctor, I ran a mile around my neighborhood. No problem at all.”

But as the appointment progressed, the specialist warned Jones to see a doctor as soon as possible. So, Jones drove himself to an emergency room, where he ultimately stayed for two weeks for kidney failure.
“I was just in shock,” he said.

 “How does someone who is healthy—I thought was healthy—end up in a hospital like this?”
Despite the hospital stay and medications, Jones’ kidney still did not improve. He would either need a kidney replacement or dialysis for the rest of his life.

 None of his family members were potential donors because of a history of diabetes and hypertension.

When Schecter heard about the situation, she hardly knew Jones. She knew his three children—ages 14, 10, and 8—and their mother, but he rarely spoke with the principal.
“As long as I’m not being called to her office [for my kids], that’s a good thing,” Jones said.

But her faith stirred her to action for the family, despite her best efforts to ignore the calling. She asked her family, which includes her husband and two adult children, for their input, “secretly hoping” they wouldn’t allow her to go through with the procedure. But they instead encouraged her to follow through. She started the testing process to see if she was a compatible donor and sure enough, she was.

“In a way, why wouldn’t I be—since God put it on my heart, why would it not be the perfect match then?” she said.

 “But there was a part of me that was hoping it wouldn’t be a match, so I could get credit for doing something good, but not actually have to go through with it.”

A few short weeks later, Schecter was scheduled for a three-hour-long operation to give her kidney.

 Tucked into her Bible was a verse from the Psalms: “This is the day that the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it.”

Redemption


TODAY'S SCRIPTURE:
Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, whom He has redeemed from the hand of the enemy.
Psalm 107:2, NKJV

TODAY'S WORD:
Words have creative power. When you speak something out, you give life to what you’re saying. For instance, it’s important to believe that you’re blessed.

 But when you say, “I am blessed,” that’s when blessings come looking for you. Today’s Scripture doesn’t say, “Let the redeemed think so, or believe so, or hope so.” That’s all good, but you have to take it one step further and say so. If you’re going to go to the next level, overcome an obstacle, or break an addiction, you have to start declaring it.

When God created the worlds, nothing happened until He spoke. He said, “Let there be light,” and light came. His thoughts didn’t set it into motion; His words set it into motion. It’s the same principle today.

 You can have big dreams, stand on God’s promises, but not see anything change until you speak. When you speak, good breaks, promotion, and ideas will track you down.

PRAYER FOR TODAY:
“Father, thank You that when You created the worlds, You didn’t just think or believe them into being. You spoke them into being.

 I believe that I am to speak out words that are true to the faith in my heart, and that when I say so, You will act. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
The Preacher's Sincere Talk

God Sees Your Heart

SCRIPTURE:
“…The LORD does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.”
1 Samuel 16:7, NIV

TODAY'S WORD:
In the Scripture, David was discounted by his family, and his job as a shepherd was considered insignificant. His family looked on the outside, but David had a heart after God. He didn’t complain or get bitter; he didn’t slack off because nobody was watching or cared. He just kept being his best where he was. And on the day the prophet Samuel showed up to anoint one of his father’s sons as the next king, it was David who was anointed over his brothers.

Just because people leave you out doesn’t mean God leaves you out. People may overlook you or judge you by your looks, your talent, or your skin color. God looks on the inside. He sees your faithfulness, your integrity. The good news is that if you keep honoring God, He’ll take you from the background to the foreground.

 People may try to push you down, but God will lift you up. People don’t determine your destiny; God does.

PRAYER FOR TODAY:
“Father, thank You that You are not limited to seeing me as other people see me.

Thank You that You see my heart, and You know my faithfulness to You. I believe that promotion comes from You, and You are lifting me toward my destiny. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”

How to defeat your enemy

The Eagle does not fight the snake on the ground.
It picks it up into the sky and changes the battle ground, and then it releases the snake into the sky.

The snake has no stamina, no power and no balance in the air.

"GOD'S WONDERFUL GIFT OF RIGHTEOUSNESS


When you received Christ, eternal life was imparted into your spirit and righteousness came with it.

 Righteousness is God's nature that produces the rightness of God within you and gives you a right standing with God.  A gift.of grace delivered to you by Christ Jesus. John 1:17; "For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. "  Those who take hold of that righteousness shall reign in life. (Romans 5:17). It's your responsibility to take hold of your righteousness in Christ by being conscience of it.

 Being conscience that you are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus gives you boldness and confidence to pray and expect prayers
 It gives you  dominion over the devil and his cohorts and the circumstances and adversities of life.

 What a beautiful gift
 Your righteousness is the result of Christ suffering and triumphant resurrection. It doesn't matter how wicked you have been or how far you have strayed from God.  You just need to embrace His righteousness.

 Remember you didn't ask Him before He gave you His righteousness and it can't be improved upon.

 Because it is the righteousness of Christ Jesus. The only sinless one to walk the face of the Earth.  So, we are not going to be more righteous in heaven than we are in Heaven. In God's presence we are free to express ourselves and be ourselves as we worship and fellowship with Him, because we have right standing with Him.  Hallelujah!!!

God Has Taken Away Your Reproach!


“And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren.” Luke 1:36 (KJV)

It is not uncommon for society to tag you wrongly because they are limited spiritually.

The neighbors of Elizabeth tagged her with barrenness; little did they know that God had a plan for her. This plan was much more than what they had, and in the end, God took away her reproach by giving her a son who would prepare the way for Jesus Christ.

 Dear beloved, what tag has society placed on you? Commit it to God in prayer, and begin to wait on God in praise and thanksgiving (Philippians 4:6). Before long, God will take away your reproach by giving you a miracle that will make this same society call you blessed. Believe it and receive it in Jesus’ name. Amen!

Tottenham Hotspur Stun Manchester City

Tottenham Hotspur were too good for Manchester City and eventually won the drama-filled encounter 2-0 on Sunday.

Pep Guardiola’s charges missed a first half penalty which sparked chaos after Hugo Lloris dived to his left to deny Ikay Gundogan from 12 yards and Raheem Sterling tried to convert the follow up, going down courtesy of a Lloris challenge in the process.

The Video Assistant Referee was consulted as the City players appealed for another penalty which they were denied by the technology.

Neither team could break the deadlock as they went into the break level.

The stadium erupted in the 56th minute when debutant Steven Bergwijn thrust Jose Mourinho’s men ahead through a brilliant chest and shoot which sparked wild celebrations.

Son doubled Spurs’ advantage minutes later and City’s misery was further compounded by the dismissal of Oleksandr Zinchenko on account of a second bookable offense.

The result means run away leaders Liverpool are now a staggering 22 points clear at the summit of the Premier League table.-Soccer 24

Mkokheli, Tarumbwa To Return To Bosso?

HIGHLANDERS trained with a full squad for the first time this year, with defender Peter Muduhwa being the last to report for pre-season.

Bosso are in their third pre-season week and Muduhwa, who cited “pressing family commitments” as the reason for joining camp late, alongside another late comer Mbekezeli Sibanda, who started training on Friday, will work “extra shifts” to catch up with the rest of the squad.

Other late comers that will join the “catch-up” programme are defensive midfielder Adrian Silla and central midfielder Divine Mhindirira, who clocked in last Wednesday.

Brian Banda and winger Cleopas Kapupurika make up the final contigent of late comers.

“It’s good to have all players in camp. Some are already a gear up and for those that came late we will design a special programme that they have to follow to catch-up with the rest of the players.

 We’ve been balancing ball work and physical exercises, training twice a day, but this week we’re reducing the workload, training once for all the other days so that the players recover. While the rest of the squad trains once a day, those who reported late will train twice,” said a member of the technical team.

With coach Mark Harrison waiting for his work permit, assistant coaches Mandla Mpofu and Bekithemba Ndlovu, goalkeepers’ trainer Julius Ndlovu, as well as developmental coach Melusi Sibanda, who heads Bosso 90, have been taking charge of the team’s pre-season training.

Highlanders’ spokesperson Ronald Moyo said the technical team will continue assessing trialists as well as players from their developmental side.

Ex-Kaizer Chiefs striker Mitchel Katsvairo (30), veteran striker Mkhokheli Dube, who turns 37 in June, 24-year-old goalkeeper Chris Mverechena, who was discarded by Caps United, 21-year-old Aces Youth Academy product Collin Mujuru from Harare City last season and Humphrey Ncube (27) from Bulawayo City are training with Bosso.

Call For Prayers As Four Christians Go Missing In Iraq



Four Christian aid workers from France and Iraq have gone missing in Baghdad, according to SOS Chretiens d’Orient (Christians of the Middle East).

 The nonprofit organization had sent its four employees to complete “administrative formalities,” according to the BBC.
So far, no ransom has been demanded, nor has any group taken responsibility.

 The disappearance occurred near the French embassy in Baghdad. Their names have not been revealed for security reasons, as
reported by Faithwire .

The aid workers were “to renew their visas and register the association with Iraqi authorities,” according to France 24 .

 They were also intending to inspect the charity’s activities in the city. The director of the nonprofit said the men are “experienced staff members who have been working with us for years” and had “perfect knowledge of conflict zones.”

The French Foreign Ministry has been notified of the situation and are actively working to gather more information.

SOS Chretiens d’Orient has worked in Iraq since 2014 to help persecuted Christians “remain [in the region] and rebuild.” The organization also works in Syria, Lebanon and Egypt, visiting Christian families and teaching the French language.

Christians in Iraq have suffered tremendous persecution since ISIS overran the country. Before the US invasion of Iraq, an estimated 1.5 million Christians lived in the Middle Eastern country. That number has dwindled down to less than 200,000.

“Our tormentors confiscated our present while seeking to wipe out our history and destroy our future,” said The Archbishop of Irbil, Rev. Bashar Matti Warda at an event in London last year.

“In Iraq, there is no redress for those who have lost properties, homes and businesses.

 Tens of thousands of Christians have nothing to show for their life’s work, for generations of work, in places where their families have lived, maybe, for thousands of years.

“Christianity in Iraq…is perilously close to extinction. Those of us who remain must be ready to face martyrdom.”

"PRIDE GOES BEFORE A FALL"



Proverbs 16:18; "Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall."

It is difficult to tell when some people are proud. Because pride is of the heart. Only God's Word can diagnose pride in a person's heart.

 Meditate on God's Word. It x-rays your heart to reveal what is there. If there is pride or something that isn't right,  the Word will reveal it. (Hebrews 4:12). God's Word discerns the thoughts of the heart. 1 Samuel 16:7 says, ..."man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart."

 Study the Scripture and see what's described as pride; behaviors that God referred to as pride and expressions of pride. (2 Chronicles 26:16;32:25; Ezekiel 28:5,17).

 A proud look(Proverbs 6:17;21:4). God says these are sin. You must fight to remain humble. Use gracious and loving words on people. You should emulate Jesus. (Philippians 2:5-8). Receive God's Word into your spirit and let it transform your life. The humility of Christ should be evident in your thoughts,  actions and communication.
         Hallelujah!!

Profile :Mercy Mutsvene



Mercy Mutsvene attended Highfield 2 High School in Harare.

 Her father is a Pastor at Apostolic Faith Mission. Back then, she would sing in church with the choir.

 This prompted her to take music as a career.

The gospel singer was married in 2002 to Simbarashe Ngwenya and they divorced in 2007 before she got married to a Zambian bishop and relocated to Zambia. The marriage lasted for a few months and in 2009 she got married to Tongai Nheta.

Career
Her former husband Simbarashe Ngwenya then referred her to gospel singer Pastor Elias Musakwa.

 Musakwa took her in and created a 'Zimbabwean Rebecca Malope'.
Rebbecca Malope Claim
It was reported that Mutsvene made people believe that there was a working relationship between her and Rebecca Malope, the South African Gospel Artist.

 She claimed too that Rebecca knew about her music since some of it was recorded in SA. She kept on dismissing the accusations of singing Malopes lyrics citing that Malope had given her green light to record music that is similar to hers.

 However, It became clear that she was lying when Malope toured in Zimbabwe. The SA gospel singer dismissed the claims as lies citing that she didn’t know her.

 Some of Mercy’s songs such as ‘Handingabvumi’ and ‘Muri Mutsvene’ are direct translations of Malope’s songs ‘Mangingavumi’ and ‘Ulilanga Lelanga’.
She however released songs that are attributed to Malope name.

 Some of the songs are ‘Ndinovimba Nemi’, ‘Tichasanganiswa’, ‘Zano’, ‘Kedenga’, ‘Ndinonamatira’ and many more.credit: Pindula News

Lightning is a formidable weapon created by God to destroy the enemies of your destiny and enhance your deliverance.

Determination to preach word of God


 Showers of Blessings -Ezra 7:10 " For Ezra had set his heart to study the Law of the Lord, and to do it and to teach his statutes and rules in Israel."

It was time for Ezra to return from exile. On his return he set his heart "akaisa mwoyo wake pakudzidza Shoko raMWARI" On top of that, he set his heart to do what the Word of GOD commands.

 Furthermore, he set his heart to teach the Word of GOD. Ezra was not only focused on himself but he wanted all people to know and do as expected of them. Anotsvaka ruzivo opangurira vamwe.

I am learning nyaya yokuisa mwoyo pachinhu. It is very important. It really makes a difference. Ndadzidza nyaya yokutsvaka things that benefit others.

 May the LORD enable us all to set our heart in doing as expected of us, and set our hearts in serving others. Serving others makes one great in the Kingdom of GOD.
 Let it be your prayer kuti MWARI vakubatsire to do things nomwoyo, whatever you do wherever you are, at School, Church, home, work etc Amen.

Hypocrisy

 

Showers of blessings - Galatians 2:11-14

 "But when Cephas came to Antioch, I opposed him to his face, because he stood condemned.

For before certain men came from James, he was eating with the Gentiles; but when they came he drew back and separated himself, fearing the circumcision party. And the rest of the Jews acted hypocritically along with him, so that even Barnabas was led astray by their hypocrisy. But when I saw that their conduct was not in step with the truth of the gospel, I said to Cephas before them all, “If you, though a Jew, live like a Gentile and not like a Jew, how can you force the Gentiles to live like Jews?”

What we read from this passage is that:

 Peter was afraid of certain Jews, so he acted  in fear and as a result of his action, a lot of his followers got confused and were led into hypocrisy too.

 But Paul was an Apostle of CHRIST who portrayed a good character of integrity.

 He confronted things which were not right among his coworkers, he rebuked sin, he condemned bad behaviour, he corrected the wrong before it corrupted other innocent people.

 He demonstrated good leadership. He was honest with the reality of matters. He was not ashamed to speak out the truth even to his leaders.

What I have learnt here in this passage, I am also praying for the HOLY SPIRIT to enable you to demonstrate this Pauline character. Our Church gathering are sometimes full of people who can't confront the wrong.

We fail to demonstrate our call as watchman Ezekiel 33:1-11. I pray that the LORD raises honest man of integrity who condemns sin, even if it's done by respected people. Failure to do this is actually failing to serve GOD'S Divine Will and Purpose. MWARI vatibatsire hama. Amen.

Real Madrid Shoot To La Liga Summit


Real Madrid scored late in the second half to beat Real Valladolid 1-0 in La Liga and take over sole possession of first place from Barcelona on Sunday.

Zinedine Zidane's side took advantage of the chance presented to them by Barcelona on Saturday after the Catalans came out on the wrong side of a 2-0 result away to Valencia.

However, the win did not come easy as the hosts made Los Blancos suffer throughout much of the game until Nacho popped up in the 78th minute to head home a Toni Kroos cross for the lead.

After the match, Zidane had high praise for the goalscorer: "Nacho is really professional, he's homegrown, he knows the place really well, he's always switched on, when he has to compete he does it well.

"Today I'm happy with his goal because he doesn't often do it. He's part of the team and we can create chances for defenders too."

Madrid captain Sergio Ramos added: "Nacho sums up the unity of this team and that any player can come in and make a difference regardless of how many minutes they have played this season. The whole squad is so happy for him.

"It's never easy to play away from home and we knew that Valladolid would play their usual system and defend very well and close us down and we had to work very hard to open them up."

Real midfielder Casemiro thought he had given Zidane's side an early lead when he headed home a free kick from Kroos but the goal was ruled out for offside after a VAR review.

Valladolid's Sergi Guardiola meanwhile netted late in the game but that was also ruled offside and Real clung on to earn a vital victory.

Real, who have not won the title since 2017, lead the standings on 46 points after 21 games while Barca are second on 43 and Sevilla third with 38.

Zidane said: "They are three important points, but that's all. We know there's a lot of league left. It will be difficult for all the teams, including us. But we're happy with the result, because it was a hard-fought game and we played a serious game.

"We were compact defensively, and when we had to play we did a lot better in the second half and we got three points at a tough ground against an opponent who made things difficult."-ESPN
