You Preach!



Lemme confess, I stole this from SDK's blog because I think it would be pretty awesome to hear the different sermons y'all heard today in your various churches. So for those who attended service today, what was the sermon about, what was the message in the sermon and what did you learn? 

I'm actually in a friend's house at the moment and and they share a fence with a church. All I've in the last one hour is Die Die Die Dieeeeee by fayaaaaaa. LOL.

    1. Maybe the person telling the spirits to torment them?

    2. Nope... die is saying they should stop their activities over your life. when somfn is dead to you, the thing ceases to exist. So telling spirits to die is telling them to stop to exist in, over and around your life. Shikenah!

    3. Kabouy, Imagine someone starts praying you stop exist in, over and around you life. By saying you should Die. How would you feel?

      Do to others as you would have them do to you. Luke6:31

  3. Sermon today says we should be steadfast in Faith. Learn to seek God's face, listen and obey him. As Mary and Joseph did.
    We shouldn't only chase wealth but God's happiness as well.
    That's all I remember, for now

  6. And to those who are saying who are we asking to die,it's s powers in our foundation, everyone born in Africa has a foundational idol,even d bible says we restle not against flesh n blood but against principalities and powers, d rulers of the earth and yes evil spirits and demons die. So believe it or not my dear,dey exist and must b dealt with.

    1. 'everyone born in Africa has a foundation idol'!? How so please?
      What about Africans not born in Africa? The foundation idol disappears? People of the white race have a different kind of spirit in them?
      Yes, wrestle not against flesh...but when almost all one's told is about enemies, they begin to live in paranoia- this is not good.
      I'll say, obey God, increase your faith, do good and one would live above 'enemies', even to an extent that when you pray about them you may find it difficult to wish them death; because you're already sure they're powerless to harm you.

    2. And u compare the whites with us,so funny Dk olukoya of MFM is a doctorate degree holder but he still believes in these things, does it mean he is illiterate?. Plss we leave in a world filled with wickedness and every home has an idol,take it or leave it. Or u think is ordinary that gals would stay till age 34-40 n not get married and u tell me it's ordinary or how do u explain a man who is 45 and is not married neither has he achieved something tangible? All I would say is may God open our eyes to see beyond the physical.

    3. Omg dear Mabel, Oprah Winfrey isn't married I'm sure she's being pursued by so many spiritual forces so she doesn't get married dat dey forgot she busy becoming one of the most Powerful/Richest woman in the world that ALL men would kneel on her feet to marry her.
      Mabel! Mabel!! Lol

    4. I believe we Africans tend to over spiritualize life issues that we overlook doing the needful. However, I don't dispute the existence and potency of 'principalities and powers'. Life is always a matter of perspectives, a half -filled cup can either be half empty or half filled depending on which perspective one looks at it. At the risk of being criticized, Jesus in His commandment admonished His followers to love and even said that we should love our enemies and that by so doing, one would heap coals of fire on their heads. Its not so much about the person as it is about the acts.

  7. I can go on and on bout service at HOTR. It was Christmas service #Awesome. There was a live orchestra. A Lot of carol renditions by Lara George,Dupe Kachi,etc. Sermon today was bout Mother Mary: Handling the trouble that comes with the blessing.
    If the song "O Night Divine" don't touch ur inner core and awaken ur Xmas spirit,i donno what else can...

  8. With Globalization and the current trend of (too much) Advocacy For "Freedom" in all aspect of our society would only lead to lawlessness and subsequently, An inevitable World war. I hope it doesn't occur in our Generation.

    On thE Die Die Die church, I'm so sorry to offend any member of the church with wat I want to say now... It is Quite obvious to the 'spiritually uncorrupted' mind that most Naïve n Gullibles look towards their physical and psychological weaknesses as a fault of another Being. I'm sure the Religious leaders in these churches Have found a way to take advantage of their frailties to 'enjoy' the position of being A Leader to the Many. Leadership in nigeria has so been basterdized dat Men wallow in the Euphoria of being one, whether socially, Politically and most defintely, Spiritually. Forgetting the Principles dat guide them.

    I'm speaking too many grammar! Lol...
    My point is, The Truth is inside you is stronger than the one outside. Do not be Swayed easily by the Truth outside.

    1. Lol... you couldn't be more wrong! the way you see us as naive and gullible is the same way we see you as naive and ignorant. Lol.
      I do not even argue about things like this. To each his own. Whatever works for you. For you to now go on and on about how the leaders "Have found a way to take advantage of their frailties to 'enjoy' the position of being A Leader to the Many" is just wrong on all levels Uyi. Enough said.

    2. There's no 'choice' wen relating to the Bible. It is not abt taking sides with a part of the bible dat suits you.
      The bible from Genesis is like an historical piece that evolved from Adam to Moses to David to the Final Puzzle Solved by God himself(Jesus Christ) and that's why we are CHRISTians today.

      If Jesus Christ says anything, follow in suit. There's no 'choice' In that, cos he said "I am the way the truth and the Life..."
      Do wat he does, Simple. Don't say some part of the bible (e.g the old testament) 'works' for you. Kabouy.
      You could have just become a Jew den. Cos they only belive in the Old testament.

  9. @cccc- what did the bible tell us about our enemies? Pray for them or pray for them to die? If they are not referring to the bad people what are they asking to die,J

    1. Yes J, pray for them. I was only being 'funny' saying that, as you'd see in my reply to Mabel's comment. :)

      Delete
    2. While he said we should pray for our enemies... did he also say we should pray for principalities and powers, rulers of darkness, spiritual wickedness in high places?
      you really do not understand... but it's fine. There's no need to flog the issue.
      If your pastor chooses to always preach about prosperity or give motivational talks every sunday, or you choose to dance throughout the service(at every service)... my point is, if I choose not to bother my head about what you do in your church.. I see no reason why you should. like I told Uyi, to each his own. Whatever works for you. If you choose to pray for your enemies, it's fine. If I choose to tell mine to "die", it's my choice.

      Good morning.

  10. Lol..... I also saw it on sdk's blog. We had carol service in chyrvh today so d sermon was centred on the birth of Jesus. The birth of Jesus gives us hope to eternal life. We also have to always be grateful to in all situations even though wat u asked God hasn't manifested, just thank Him. Lord I'm grateful for life. Even though I'm nt where I want to be, I'm no longer where I used to be.

  11. Can you refer me to any part of the bible that supports your assertion that spirits die. Spirits don't die. Jesus casted them out of people they were tormenting. Spirits don't die o. J

  12. @cccc, ok I get you now. Christian means "christlike" the life of Christ was so simple and preached love,love and love. I have no business praying all the die die prayer, Christ never prayed those kind of prayers. See how simple our lord's prayer is. Do evil spirts exist? Yes! But as a christian wwe should not live our life scared of them or perpetually declaring deaths on them. As Christians the devil should be the one scared. When we wake up in the morning, the devil should be scared not the other way roung. Today the preaching in church is about not being scared as it means we doubt God. Once peter got scared scared while walking on the river he began to sink. It is fear that leads to those die die prayers. Gotta sleep. Forgive all typos. J

    1. hmmmmn.... spirits do not die i agree.... telling them to die sound absurd.... yes i agree.... but it does mean we do not wrestle against dem.. principalities and powers.... sometimes we do not pray warfare prayer they wont let u go to actualise your dream and purpose in life.... the blessing from serving God comes but they rob you off dem before they get to you... daniel fasted n prayed for 21days he answer came on the very first day.... he the prince of persia did not obstruct it.... he wont have fasted for that long

      about other africans not born here trust me they still have this foundational problem i have friend from different parts of africa they have major issues tooo.... its cause of our forefather diabolic practices....

      Delete
    2. So you mean in Indian, Malaysia, China, Sweden, Norway etc. They didn't have 'diabolic' practices?
      Like how much Prayer and Fasting did Dangote, Adenuga, Otedola etc did they do to become Billionaires? Plz Mark Zukerberg must have gone to a mountain to obtain some Ancient Spiritual Staff to destroy his Spiritual Enemies to become a billionaire at 26. Bill Gate went for a Spiritual special Annointing Service (SSAS) to become a Multi-billionaire. Wat are you saying please? That these guys didn't have Forefathers with diabolic practices but you do because your Pastor said so? Plzzzzz Think again.

      I am not saying there are no spiritual vessels in the world, But You are bigger than them. When the Bible said Greater is He dat is in you dan he dat is in the World, do u know how much weight that statement carries? You think say Jesus Christ's Death for u is overrrated? Plz don't underrate it and. Don't underrate yourself.

  13. Today's sermon was on getting understanding even more than wisdom. Understanding makes the timing perfect for all our decisions and actions but it is never one of the things we ask God for.

  15. @Uyi n CCC,I just came here n saw u guy's comment but m in no mood for argument so I let it pass. U don't believe it because you have not experienced foundational issues. Let me tell u a story, David Oyedepo's wife was once sick,serious sickness that he prayed all the whole faith prayers and still nothing happened, when he saw that this one pass him power,he contacted daddy Adeboye of redeem, daddy told him to invite all those who are working with him or worked with him in d past,Oyedepo did as he was told,they gathered in the sitting room and fire prayer started. A girl of not more Dan 7 years of age amongst those invited, started rolling and wailing on the floor and confessed being behind Mrs oyedepo's sickness,after that incident, Oyedepo who never believed in witches started believing in it. Bottom line is,there are wicked forces,the fact that u not experiencing their terrors doesn't mean they don't exist,the world of today does not require cold prayers at all. I rest my case.

    BTW: this was a story told my oyedepo himself on the pulpit, no one told me,I heard it myself.

  17. Sunday's sermon was titled 'Motivated by Love'. It started with definition of motivation - the reason for a particular course of action and then what motivate humans - survival, guilt, jealousy, greed, revenge, pride et al. He then moved over to what motivates God action's which was agreed to be love and how we should emulate such reason stressing the fact that God is more concerned about our motivation than actions. Hence our prayers, talks, thoughts, actions etc should have a common inspiration - Love as it is the greatest reason in the world.

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…

Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

#WriteRight. VIVIAN: MY FIRST SEX EXPERIENCE WITH MY BOYFRIEND

He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

THE ‘NEW’ SIDE CHICK: I WAS HER

A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…

Shhhhhhh....

I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!

Closed Chapter...

Hello everyone, yesterday a friend said to me, Thelma I love your blog, I've told so many people about your blog, I think you're a very good writer but I feel there's something you're not doing right"

This friend was the first person who won our beauty of the day contest back then in 2014. Then we had met just once through a mutual friend. I mentioned the blog to her and she became an instant reader. I wouldn't have exactly called her a friend then but yesterday as we sat down waiting for our Uber to come get us from Wal-Mart, she's definitely my friend and I knew she was coming from a good place when she said she had much higher expectations of my blog.

Me too.

But you see, in the last year or so, maybe even longer than that, I haven't felt much joy in blogging. It began to feel more and more of a laborious chore, one which I hardly reaped any fruits from.

I really love writing, I love sharing my life and my experiences with others and I've enjoy…
