Slow of heart to believe!

2021 Who could be heading to Emmaus? 

Behold, two men were traveling to Emmaus, it was a new year for them.

While they journeyed they occupied themselves with past circumstances, talking together of all these things which had happened. That was their biggest mistake that you shouldn’t do my friend when you’ve crossed over. 

Jesus appeared on them, but in disguised, and asked, "What kind of conversation is this that you have with one another as you walk and are sad?" Luke 24:17.

How they answered is probably what every Christian would do when they want to demonstrate how versed they’re with the scriptures, they know something, be it current affairs or history.  

So Cleopas answered and said to Him, "Are You the only stranger in Jerusalem, and have You not known the things which happened there in these days?"

Jesus then said what things?

The man then answered back, but ignorantly demonstrated how his own faith was misplaced. This we come across often amongst ourselves believers.

Anyway, Jesus realised their problem and said to them, "O foolish ones, and slow of heart to believe in all that the prophets have spoken! Ought not the Christ to have suffered these things and to enter into His glory?" Luke 24:25-26. He then used the scriptures and expounded to them the things concerning Himself.

Here is the thing; 2021 my friend don’t be naive. Beware of those men traveling to Emmaus, men who go about fooling around others with vain conversations, empty promises and prophecies, etc.

In our story these disciples’ eyes were later opened, but you may not have that chance yourself to understand scripture as you should, as these two did, who later knew him and returned to the others.

So in 2021, develop your own resilience; commit to your own goals. Focus on what you yourself can control, be realistic, be emphatic, sail through, and don’t blame others.

One good reason you received Jesus is so that He may open the Scriptures to you. Remember, all men could be on the road to Emmaus (lost, off topic) or are slow of heart to believe, but He came to us a Revealer and to give us light.

God bless you,

Sit down, Martha!

The story of Martha and Mary tells us that there are two types of Christians out there; where one is a worshipper and another is a waitperson or server. You can choose what you want to be, that’s to be a worshipper or server. But listen to this before you do; " Now it happened as they went that He entered a certain village; and a certain woman named Martha welcomed Him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, who also sat at Jesus' feet and heard His word. But Martha was distracted with much serving, and she approached Him and said, "Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Therefore tell her to help me." And Jesus answered and said to her, "Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her. "" Luke 10:38-42. Mary chose the best part, to sit down at his feet and not be worried, frustrated, confused and troubl

Why Lord why me?

Many people ask; why Lord why me? Hezekiah said, " indeed it was for my own peace That I had great bitterness; But You have lovingly delivered my soul from the pit of corruption, For You have cast all my sins behind Your back ," Isaiah 38:17. Did you hear that? All things work for your good. God loves you regardless. However, that you do in the prime of your life impacts the remainder of your years, even hereafter. If you’re born again, you allow the Lord to undertake, but if you’re not born again you certainly deprive your latter years. Hezekiah had boils and was supposed to die because of them. He said, "I shall go to the gates of Sheol" and sin shall make an end of me. But when he repented, God undertook deliverance for him, he said, " What shall I say? He has both spoken to me, And He Himself has done it. I shall walk carefully all my years in the bitterness of my soul, " Isaiah 38:15 knowing that God has restored me. For this reason, he said I’ll prai

How much do people know about you?

Hezekiah answered, " They have seen all that is in my house; there is nothing among my treasures that I have not shown them, " Isaiah 39:4. I can hear Isaiah say, " What? " Then Hezekiah said, it doesn’t matter Isaiah, " They came to me from a far country, from Babylon ." What can they do? Then Isaiah said to Hezekiah, " Hear the word of the LORD of hosts: 'Behold, the days are coming when all that is in your house, and what your fathers have accumulated until this day, shall be carried to Babylon; nothing shall be left,' says the LORD. 'And they shall take away some of your sons who will descend from you, whom you will beget; and they shall be eunuchs in the palace of the king of Babylon .'" Isaiah 39:5-7. How much do people know about you my friend? Everything? Then hear the word of the Lord! This reminds me of one president. Someone said of him I don't think he can now be trusted with intelligence briefing, and in the futur
