Come on people there is plenty of room let go on adventure with Jesus in 2014!



I love the bible and I love the church but the question is if Jesus was to VISIT our church(YOU) today which is the last day in the month of December 2013 would you have let him in? You see the world preach religion but I tell you Jesus and religion are not the same. Religion and Jesus are opposite spectrum because when religion says “Do” Jesus said “IT IS DONE”, when religion say silent but Jesus said speak and receive freedom. Religion put man in bondage but Jesus set us free.  Religions make people blind and far away from the truth but Jesus make you see because Jesus is the true light.
Religion is man searching for God but Jesus is God searching for man that is why salvation and forgiveness are freely given unto man, this is not based on our merit or our faithfulness, he just love you and me. Jesus took that crown of thorn and blood was dripping all over his face just for you and me, he did not preach religion on that cross but he showed us love by interceding on our behalf and he said “Father forgive them for they did not know what they are doing”. He was buried and He rose again his body suffer no corruption.  COME ON PEOPLE THERE IS PLENTY OF ROOM LET GO ON ADVENTURE WITH JESUS!
Today is the end to a season in our life and another season will come to an existence in the next 10hours, I know you’ve already have a plan for 2014 but the truth is without Jesus it might be difficult to achieve those plan, so what is your decision, would you receive Him as your Lord and personal saviour.  We all need help and a saviour, can’t you see our economy is failing, the rate of divorce is high, heresy everywhere, and who can we trust in this perilous time if not JESUS.  Jesus is knocking at the door of your heart will you open the door and let him in?
You know yourself, you can never play God.  God loves you, His GRACE are sufficient for you and me. If there is any prayer you should pray today or tonight let it be the prayer of salvation. Start your 2014 with JESUS and you will never regret it.  You see, I was once like you, broken-hearted, lonely and sinner but my bible make me to understand that Jesus is closer to me. According to Physics, opposite attract negative just the same way Jesus is attracted to sinner. Open your heart for HIM to be your friend, your lover and your saviour. When Jesus said it is FINISHED On the cross, I believe He meant it. I am not perfect but I give my life to Jesus just the way I am, and I believe Jesus will accept you just the same way you are today!
 
Have a Wonderful New Year, full of HIS Unspeakable Gifts and Exceeding Grace.

AMS Love Stories - Story About Exes or Past lover


When I first started having serious relationship, I promised myself that I would make sure it would never be uncomfortable to run into guys I'd breakup with. Over the years, I've occasionally had a rethink about that promise and giggled on how abominably immature I was.

But recently, I decided to reminisce about my past relationships list I kept in my blackberry (what? I don’t have one), imagine running into each of them and crunch the numbers. 

The results weren't bad at all. Of all my former boyfriends, I'd be downright please to run into some of them. Those guys range from good friends, to people I occasionally exchange a friendly good chat with, to people I've lost touch with but would be genuinely happy to run into.

Here's how I see past love. There are two kinds of past love: the sort you broke up with because it turned out that they weren't good people, and the sort you broke up with because the two of you were on different life tracks. The first group you should be careful to befriend with again. 

The second group is an excellent source of friend, as long as you're not using "friend" as an alternative word for "a person whose plan is to devour at the earliest opportunity." You need to truly be over the romantic portion of the connection, once you are sure and confident about the friendship between you can survive and even grow stronger, without you trying to force an unworkable or impossible relationship.

Speaking from my own personal relationships experience, it would be slightly, but not terribly bad to run into few of my blast from the past- I'd probably make up a fake doctor’s appointment after 10 minutes or so, but it wouldn't be a miserable experience. 

There were only 3 guys I would really dislike – (I don't want to use the word hate because AMS hate nobody) to encounter; first guy treated me awfully and I made an embarrassing mess of breaking up with, and the second guy, I really should not have had anything to do with for the reasons that will not be discussed today.

The third guy was a bully and a womanizer, you know, when something is too good to be true. At least I understood that during the relationship with the third guy, I know too well that the love we had for each other is not a practical love. We did not care about each other deeply, have the same outlook and see ourselves getting married but it was the love where we get infatuated with each other and I get butterflies, which was a bit unhealthy, and there you go.

The promise I made to stay as friends with, or at least on good terms with, my old flame have not gone as poorly as you'd presume. Thank God for Jesus! So why do so many people think staying friend with an ex is impossible?

When ladies are discussing this topic, I always hear, “Why would you want a person in your life if you're not romantically involved anymore?” That question makes sense to me now. However, I want my old flame in my life because I love them. The fact that we are no longer considering the possibility of getting married or making babies together doesn't change that. 

I am no longer with  Mr S because he wants to live with his mum, be in a relationship  with his former girlfriend and he wanted to become a Pastor, while I prefer to work, earn money, be monogamous and travel - nothing about that suggests to me that we should never speak again. I’m not with Mr Y because his mum said he cannot marry a Christian and I was a student. Well my family won't let me married a Muslim either, beside I love my privacy and I don't want to be an unequally yoked with him- nothing suggests we should never speak again. I’m not with Mr C because he wanted kid before marriage and I want kids after marriage, you're really going to tell me there’s no point in us staying in each other’s lives for that reason?

When people say it’s impossible to be friends with an ex, what they really mean is it’s a lot of work and they don't feel like making the effort. If you feel that you want to be friend with you ex, make sure you've already end your trouble relationship respectfully, not by cheating or suddenly going radio silent. Then you have to take a serious break from communicating in order to move on. Then you have to deal with any lingering anger and resentments, forgive their sins and atone for yours.  Forgiveness and letting go are very important in every relationship because you don't want your past to rent a room free in your head. Just let go and learn from every mistakes because some of our mistakes are blessing in disguise.

On the other hand, it's probably better than staying in a relationship with someone you'd be better off with just as good friends. Then you have to set boundaries, stick to them, and be continually respectful of the other person’s emotions. Most importantly, you have to resist the temptation to backslide when the demons of loneliness and horniness try to convince you that maybe you should be together after all.  In many ways it’s as difficult as an actual relationship, but if you reject the idea that hard work should only be reserved for faithful romantic relationships, its work worth doing.

At its core, the idea that you can't be friends with former lover is embroiled with society’s heteronormative (prescribe standard) expectations. We're taught to see our lives as a narrow route towards marriage and kids, with some less-important sub-plot characters involved whom we call ‘friends’. In that world, once someone’s romantic potential is gone, they must be discarded. They're no longer a potential spouse and they're not a friend, so what’s the point?

I am learning every day and I believe in the power of forgiveness. Therefore, I prefer to surround myself with people I love deeply without fitting them into a pre-set structure or in a jack in the box. With all my relationship experiences, I believe that, now, I can love someone even if we're not going to make a family or become immense part of my future. I've noticed that one or two of my friends are more likely to stay friends with blast from the past than some of them, and that makes perfect sense to me. They're already in the business of bucking society’s expectations for their relationships, and the whole ‘you can't be friends with an ex’ thing gets tossed out with the rest of it. Relationships are too complex, multifaceted, and grey to end and begin on such finite terms.

Above all, love is a beautiful thing, do not get it twisted. To me, the ability to maintain friendly relationships with exes is a sign of emotional maturity and it could be difficult sometimes. To all my beautiful ladies out there, please never settle for less. No love you, no manage him!! Like the Americans do say, the best revenge for a broken heart is to always look good and be closer to your maker.

To all my gentlemen out there, stop breaking our heart, I know there are lots of beautiful women out there but your FAVOUR is attached to just one. And before you say I LOVE YOU to a woman, please think twice because that WORD means a lot to us.  Be careful not to deliberately break a woman’s heart because hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.

Joseph Prince - Why God Blesses And Then Blesses Again!



If the Bible says that we are already blessed with every blessing, is it wrong to ask God to bless us again...and again? Will God answer such "selfish" prayers? Listen to this Joseph Prince preaching as he shows you the truth that God's heart is to bless you—over and over again!

 

See from the prayer of Jabez and the lives of other Bible characters why it is even honourable to ask God to bless you and how He is willing to keep blessing you. Dare to ask again and watch your blessings come to pass as you see your Father's big heart!

AMS true stories: SMILE - Special Magic In Loving Everybody

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
It was a cold day on the 24th of December 2010, then, I used to work as a checkout operator in one of the biggest supermarket in the UK (Asda). You can imagine how customers were anxious to get last bargain stuffs and the queue was really long but still smiling on my checkout. My face was brimming with joy for no other reason that this date was my last day of working as a customer assistance and it was a day to Christmas. I was also looking forward to celebrate Christmas with my God's parent.
 
Though, the supermarket was really busy but one customer was not too far busy going about his shopping to notice me. It was an elderly gentleman in a wheelchair from another sales counter, he brought his eyes up to meet mine as he was going home  after shopping. He slowdown in passing and move his wheel towards my checkout, just long enough to speak to me.
 

 
                        He said "Now that's a Christmas smile if I ever saw one."
 
My lips stretched to their limit in response, and I thanked him for the compliment. Then he left the supermarket. But, as I thought about the man today and how sweetly he'd touched me three years ago, I realized something simply wonderful!  In that brief interaction we'd exchanged heartfelt gifts! And that is how to give during this Christmas period
 
In this year 2013, I've spent more time with a smile on my face than not, not because I have a nice smile, pretty lips, and big round cheeks but the thing is, I don't write about it. But today, I decided to write about it because too often we take too lightly the power of a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the possibility of turning a life around. The moral of this story is, find happiness in small moments and take in the beauty of EVERY BLESSED day and smile because only God knows the end before it begins.

When we GIVE under “Pressure” or “Reluctantly” we are giving under the LAW of giving and NOT the GRACE given for giving. God loves a cheerful giver, which is giving under GRACE. 2 Corinthians 9:7.

 
Thank you for reading my post, kindly remember to smile always. 
 
 
God blessed and Merry Christmas to you all :)

AMS: VICTORY - Speak Life into Your Situation Because You've Won!




Sometimes we have to go back to the basics. We have to remind ourselves to look at the Victor. We have to look at Jesus and know on the inside. His situation looked hopeless to man, but his victory was right there. As a child I thought my immediate elder sister was sometimes crazy because everything was JESUS and if I complained about anything, her response was always, Alaba, what does your Bible say. But she was preparing me for a time such as this. I would get a tummy ache and she would get the Bible and say what the word of God says about your health? She wanted me to know that God is able, He is my answer.
 
Recently I was really vulnerable, just going through some stuff, you know testing period but then I started reading Psalms 23 every morning.  By reading this Psalms, I understand that he is the greatest shepherd and that His goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life. I know that when people, trials and anything come against me. My God will be bigger and I will win. That is why when people start acting crazy..... I simply give them their space. I say Lord I am not fighting with them, I will not be fighting WITH ANYBODY. Friends should love at all times but when they are acting crazy I say Lord the battle is not mines, for you said the trial would come but I am an overcomer in Christ Jesus. Lord you said.......
 
When sickness tries to take my body I say devil you are a liar, you have no place here. This body is the temple of God and you have no right to it. As a child I would draw the picture of Jesus riding a horse and write poems about my body being God's temple and I had no idea, but my body belongs to God. That is what kept me from being sexually active in high school. I did not want to abuse this temple he had given me. When I took my fall (backslide) in Polytechnic I said Lord the temptation is great, you need to send my husband J.  So Satan has no right in you. You have to talk to illness for it is a spirit force. "You must go in the name of Jesus."
 
But please understand I am a work in progress and I am still working on the Angels bringing me billions..... so that I may truly be a blessing to othersJ. However, I understand that it is all in my mouth. I will reign victoriously. Just know God is able! It truly does not matter what it looks like. Just speak positive words into your life remember there is power in your tongue.
 
God shook me one day. It was after I finished my first degree. I was looking for money to pay for my second degree (Postgraduate) course, I had no money, no parent to help, no good job but I still trust God. My student visa was running out but I trust in God. I prayed like never before and God said I am still God. One of my friend from church just called me and said Mariam God told me to give you 1/3 of you University fees, I was shocked but lo and behold I have already saw her in my dream wiping my tears. If I had not known God maybe the world would have laughed at me.  
 
In August 2005, I had a dream, in that dream I saw finger writing on the sky, the sky was really white but I could not see what the finger was writing, the finger moved towards me and all I could see was I WILL MAKE A WAY FOR YOU WHERE THERE SEEM TO BE NO WAY. When I got out of my sleep, I thank God about the dream and I told my sisters.  Do you want to know why I thank God? You see JESUS is the only I AM THAT I AM. Satan can never say I because devil knew where he belong. Anytime I’m going through trials in my life. I always remind God about the promise of “I WILL”. My God is a God of COVENANT!
 
Knowing God has to do with walking with God, please if you don’t know HIM try to know him today because He will brighten your life. My life is not perfect in the way that the world will see it today, but I have tasted the goodness of God in so many ways. All that Jesus went through for you and I was a test of identity. Know who you are in Christ Jesus. Please don’t limit God to your needs because the greatness of God is beyond human imagination.
As a child of God killing our prey is part of us, how can a Kings and Queens like us get scared in our domain (on this earth), all we need to do is to speak light into any darkness in our life. Decree it in Faith and it shall come to pass!
You see we are in warfare in the spirit realm and we have to understand as we walking in God daily, trials will come our way but we have the power in us to overcome trials.The power is called TONGUE, use it well and don’t just speak like the mere men of this world.
 
Just as CeCe Winans sings in "Waging War." For if  you allow SATAN to take you out he can takes out the whole family. Every morning confess and say it loud: I am a child of the Most High God, I grow in wisdom, stature and favour with God and man. I am obedient and will never go the way of the world; I shall live and not die. I will declare the works of the Lord, I will speak in new tongues, no deadly thing shall hurt me. I will lay hands on the sick and the sick shall be made well. I am grateful that I have mouth to make that confession. I had to learn to speak what I want and need.
 
I learned to dispatch angels via Psalms 91 and Psalms 23 but it is a daily walk. We have to be prayerful for your prayers truly availeth much! Your confessions are your power. We truly frame our lives by our words. Speak life (Positive) into your situation because you are a winner!

The New Living Translation on BibleGateway.com was used to develop this feature

AMS - Salvation: He who created us without our help will not save us without our consent.

       
  
Good Morning! Happy Monday to you all! This is truly the day that the Lord has made, be sure to rejoice today and be glad.  The topic for today is Salvation. I pray as you read that Holy Spirit will shed more light in Jesus name. Amen.
What is Salvation? Salvation is received through repentance toward God and faith.
Salvation means we receive eternal life if we enter into a personal relationship with God. It's in the Bible, John 17:3, "And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent."
 

Salvation cannot be earned, it is a gift from God. It's in the Bible, Ephesians 2:8-9, “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them."
 
Deciding to follow Jesus is a choice – requires a personal response but salvation is God Unspeakable gift to every humankind. God offers us salvation through Jesus. It's in the Bible, Matthew 1:21, NKJV. "And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name JESUS, for He will save His people from their sins.”
Remember the parable of the prodigal son, the bible recorded that after he took his inheritance, he spent it all, he became hungry and no one could/would helped him, he then came back to his senses and returns to his father’s home. The prodigal son made that choice, no one DECIDED for him, likewise when we want to give our life to Jesus we have to make it a personal decision.
Please do not base your salvation on - I was brought up in a Christian home so therefore I have giving my life to Jesus. Well, my beloved it does not work out that way, you have to make that choice first because is yours to make and no one can make it for you.  
 
                                                           

Let me give you this scenario suppose you have a life-threatening sickness for example CANCER that requires major surgery. You wouldn’t go to your neighbour (to save money) or just look in the Yellow Pages. You would look for a recommended hospital and surgeon and then check your surgeon’s credentials to ascertain that he has the skill and experience to perform your surgery.
 
But finding a trustworthy surgeon alone would not help you, because apart from your permission he can do nothing. You would have to make the decision to personally commend yourself to him to save you through this surgery. You would have to sign the permission form and allow them to wheel you into the operating room and anesthetize you.
When you come out of that surgery and regain your health, you would know two things: the surgeon saved your life (not you), and your decision to entrust yourself to him was very significant!
God says it is exactly this way with salvation (Forgiveness of sin). He says you have guilt before him that is spiritually lethal—so lethal that only the death of his Son can remove it. He provides you with ample evidence to know that Jesus is his Son, and that he is ready and willing to perform this operation.
But you can know and rationally agree to all this—and still die in your sins. Unless you personally entrust yourself to him to remove the cancer of your guilt, he will be of no benefit to you. It’s your move!
Would you make that personal decision today to follow Jesus and no turning back? Remember Jesus is knocking and always knocking at the doors of your heart would you open the door for him to enter and abide with you?
Salvation Railroad
 
How can we receive salvation?  This is very simple, the book of Roman 10: 9- 10 says, “that if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.  For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved”.
Salvation from our Lord Jesus Christ through his death and resurrection is open to everybody, see what Revelation 22:17 says, The Spirit and the bride say, "Come!" And let him who hears say, "Come!" Whoever is thirsty, let him come; and whoever wishes, let him take the free gift of the water of life.
Wishes in this context means – is not by force but by choice!
Maybe you want to give your life to Jesus today and you don’t know how to go about it; help is here:
1) Made up your mind to follow Christ and believe in Him
2) Confess your sin (lying, immorality, taking what does not belong to you, white lies, gossip, anger, hatred and others) because the bible says we have all sin and come short of His glory
3) Invite Jesus into your heart and confess Him as your Lord and Personal Saviour
4) Congratulation you are now a born again Christian.
5) Then, find a bible teaching church and fellowship with other Christians for your growth
6) Attend the discipleship class or Alpha course and do baptism in water
7) Live Godly by His grace because you are no more under law but His Grace.
Note: I am not saying that, you will sin no more but you are cover through the blood of Jesus and please I am not saying that after you have giving your life to Christ that you can continues to sin. The bible says we should be dead to sin and we cannot continue to sin and ask for the Grace of God to abound. However, if you find yourself still struggling with sin after you have giving your life to Jesus Christ just ask for forgiveness of sin and try not to go back. I  pray God will be with you.
Thanks for reading

Scoring

Mostly A's:
Your heart is in the right spot! You don't need a reminder to see how well God and your love ones have provided for you. When someone does something nice for you, you thank them right away. It's not often that you find yourself wanting more than you have. And you're even willing to give to those who are less fortunate than you are. A grateful heart pleases God.

Mostly B's:
You're grateful for what you have … most of the time. Some-times you do find yourself wishing for bigger and better things. You're usually good about saying thank you, but sometimes it slips your mind. Try not to get wrapped up in always wanting more—and don't forget that God will take care of all your needs.

Mostly C's:
It can be tough for you to be happy with what you have. But when you start wanting more, don't forget to think about all of the good things in your life. Be sure to say thanks when someone does something nice for you. And remember, the gift of God's love is more than enough.
