THE GREATEST SUFFERER IN THE WORLD

Today I'm not going to quote a verse from the bible, my quote is from 'Things Fall Apart Part 2, Chapter 14' by Chinua Achebe. This man is so wise, his books has bags of advice only that we don't see it.

Here is the quote and I'm talking to anyone that thinks his/her life is over. 

"You think you are the greatest sufferer in the world. Do you know that men are sometimes banished for life?  Do you know that men sometimes lose all their yams and even their children? I had six wives once. I have none except that young girl who knows not her right from her left. Do you know how many children I have buried - children I begot in my youth and strength? Twenty-two. I did not hang myself, and I am still alive. If you think you are the greatest sufferer in the world ask my daughter, Akueni, how many twins she borne and thrown away. "

And this is from a fictional novel, how about me, I had a heart disease when the stroke happened, but I fought hard to get rid of it and 2 years after I am strong, the disease is gone, I have not regained 100% use of my right hand, I am going through something else that I won't mention that if you are going through it, everyday you will be crying and get depressed but here I am, strong, always smiling, hardworking, I have not hanged myself. Ok when I was in warri, I went to see my friend, she gave me the story of her former housemaid, that her younger sister of maybe 18 or 19 years had an accident and they had to cut one of her legs, terrible right? The housemaid is now staying with her sister, packing excreta because she has to poo where she is, she can't walk. That one is worse than my own o, I have my whole body together and I'm just working hard on my body but her own, she has only one leg, I'm sure she wishes she had a stroke instead of this.

My story and her story are true life stories, I don't know how they are taking it but I am taking mine easy. According to 'Uchendu' in the book 'I did not hang myself, and I am still alive'. 

This is the word for today, think about it. God loves you no matter what.

Healing and Health

My son, pay attention to my words and be willing to learn; Open your ears to my sayings. Do not let them escape from your sight; Keep them in the center of your heart. For they are life to those who find them, And healing and health to all their flesh. Watch over your heart with all diligence, For from it flow the springs of life. Put away from you a deceitful (lying, misleading) mouth, And put devious lips far from you. Let your eyes look directly ahead [toward the path of moral courage] And let your gaze be fixed straight in front of you [toward the path of integrity]. Consider well and watch carefully the path of your feet, And all your ways will be steadfast and sure.

PROVERBS 4:20‭-‬26 AMP

This verses have said it all but I want to add a little to it. Who says you cannot be healed? Who says you are useless? Who says your womb is a pack of sand and nothing good comes out of it? 

If you have the bad messenger following you up and down, just follow the verses. The word of God is medicine to the sick,  strength to the weak, babies to the barren etc, pick up your bible and meditate, let it soak you my dear, let them not depart from you. I won't be comfortable visiting out of a town without my Bible, if I forget it, I will buy another one. And guard your heart from all does who speak bad about your situation, all those that are the leaders of hate speech over your life, keep them very far from you. Behave well, let your path be established with the word of God. You can't be looking for children and laughing at the woman that is also looking for children "ahhh my own is 4 years no child but that woman ahhh 14years no child and she is 49years old ooooo, Hahahaha " this speech should not be heard from you. Fix your gaze in the word, confess the blessings upon your life everyday. Thank You for reading. God loves you no matter what.

UNSHAKABLE FAITH


Acts 28: 3-8, mark 16:18
Paul Paul,  a man of unshakable faith, before we talk about his story in Acts 28:3-8, let's turn our Bible backwards to Mark 16:18, Paul was living the verse, (hey baby, I need you to read the Bible and get the revelation by yourself😁) even if a serpent attacks or he takes poison, it will not affect him, if he lays his hands on any sick person, he/she will be healed.
There is a story about a man, I've forgotten the preacher I heard it from  the man was kidnapped, the intention was to kill the man, the kidnappers mixed a poison for him to drink, he told them it won't kill him because Mark 16:18 told him so, they laughed at him, he simply prayed out loud thanking God for giving him a liquid that will nourish his body, he drank it alright and nothing happened to him, Hahahahaha. The man is busy sharing his experience, his testimony, this part of the verse: "if they drink anything deadly, it will not hurt them".
So back to Paul's story using the same Mark 16:18, Paul was on his own, laying sticks for a fire when a viper bit him and stayed on his arm, the people around him were scared, even said amongst themselves that "this man is a bad man, a murderer and he will die because Justice has come for him". Paul knew that the snake bite cannot kill him and he knows that he has to include himself more than ever leading multitudes to Christ so he simply shook the snake into the fire and that was it. The people were looking at him and waiting for their prediction to come to pass. "Paul will die you'll see" they said to each other. They watched and watched,  did Paul die? No he didn't intact he went ahead to heal Publius Father, Publius welcomed, accepted and entertained them for 3 days.
The people around him were surprised and was saying "this man is a god". No he is not a god, he is a simple man, him and the other man I spoke about had unshakable faith. The man they kidnapped knew that the story will be his testimony, the outcome will make the kidnappers say "It can only be God", at the end the glory will go to God. 
I want you to grow your faith to unshakable faith. When you really believe Jesus died for you so therefore sickness, gunshots, poison, snake bites cannot harm you, when you start to declare "as far as the sky is existing, nobody can harm me" (got that phrase from a great man of God, Bishop Daniel Dikerji Miyerijesu, I love this man even though I've not met him nor went to any of his service but this phrase shook me) that's the end of your problems, ONLY BELIEVE

TRUST AND BELIEVE

For this is contained in Scripture: “Behold , I am laying in Zion a chosen stone , a  precious (honored) Cornerstone , And he who believes in Him [whoever adheres to, trusts in, and relies on Him] will never be disappointed [in his expectations].”

1 PETER 2:6 AMP

If only you trust God, truly, you will never be put to shame, you will never be disappointed, I assure you everything will go well for you even in trials. Because when you decide to believe in Him, you automatically become "a chosen race , a royal priesthood , a  consecrated nation , a [special] people for  God’s  own possession , so that you may proclaim the excellencies [the wonderful deeds and virtues and perfections] of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.

1 PETER 2:9 AMP

You will also know that whatever you are going through is temporal, its only a phase. 

The book of John says that "When Jesus heard this, He said, “This sickness will not end in death; but [on the contrary it is] for the glory and honor of God, so that the Son of God may be glorified by it.”

JOHN 11:4 AMP

If you trust in God, you will believe that everything bad that is happening to you it will not in death but for the glory of God, so the Son of God can be glorified.

Worship God inspite of the pains, believe in Him, give Him the burdens to hold, He will stand for you when no one stands for you. He will bring outsiders to help you when family will not help you, people that you don't even know. You will not be disappointed in your life, as long as you trust Him, He will subside the pain, treating it as it is His priority, in no time, you won't the pain anymore.

God loves you no matter what.

I will not be defeated

Kathryn Kulman a woman of God broke her legs, but she ignored them and the next morning she was back to the pulprit sharing the word of God, she even she will not let the flesh to stop God's work. How i've grown to love this woman of God, the Holy spirit in her was so powerful that if she enters your bedroom and you are standing, you will fall lol...She defeated the devil, she defeated death, even though she died from one of this life threatnening illness, when she was alive, she never let the illness drag her to bed, never. She was always up, healing people spiritually and physical, sharing the gospel. And you know the funny thing, she says its not her that heals, its the holy spirit, she loves the holy spirit. And on her deathbed, Oral Roberts came with people to pray for her healing but she stopped him, she said she wants to go home and the nurse confirmed that after death, her face was shinning, that corner was filled with light, she defeated death.

That's what I want to continue to do, preach the gospel, heal people through the holy spirit. I know I have issues with my health and my mum's but I won't let them bring me down, afterall my story is not the saddest story, everyone has their story. I don't know the people that gets touched from my messages, but I know they are so much, some of them even reach out to me. So if you are reading this article and going through tough times, it's really normal but don't go down in defeat, don't be a person who is beaten. Even though it seems like the world is closing up on you, the God of Abraham is still our God, the God who made iron to swim is still our God. The God that does not rest all day and night just to protect you is still your God. There is no defeat in Christ. We are more than conquerors in Christ and in the face of tragedy. If you have not given your life to Christ, just pray to Him to come into your life. Give up is not an option, cry if you can, throw things but never give up. You are free to air your issues with me, my dm is there, my email eabenabe@gmail.com, anyone, I'll even share my issues with you and how i'm going it with Jesus. Never forget, Jesus loves you no matter what.

"Kathryn Kulman once said "Remember, you are His. He will defend you. He will protect you.You are His and He claims you noe against all adversaries. You are His and therefore you should trust Him with complete confidence today, tomorrow, and until that last day when your redemption is perfected and you stand in His glorious presence."

RADICAL FOR JESUS

Because my God is number 1...because my God is ALPHA AND OMEGA...because my God is everything to me..I refuse to back down and be depressed no matter what is happening.

In JESUS NAME (and you know things happen when JESUS is mentioned.

IF GOD IS FOR US, WHO CAN BE AGAINST US?

What then shall we say to all these things? If God is for us, who can be [successful] against us? He who did not spare [even] His own Son, but gave Him up for us all, how will He not also, along with Him, graciously give us all things? Who will bring any charge against God’s elect (His chosen ones)? It is God who justifies us [declaring us blameless and putting us in a right relationship with Himself]. Who is the one who condemns us? Christ Jesus is the One who died [to pay our penalty], and more than that, who was raised [from the dead], and who is at the right hand of God interceding [with the Father] for us. Who shall ever separate us from the love of Christ? Will tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? Just as it is written and forever remains written, “F or Y our sake we are put to death all day long ; W e are regarded as sheep for the slaughter .” Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors and gain an overwhelming victory through Him who loved us [so much that He died for us]. For I am convinced [and continue to be convinced--beyond any doubt] that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present and threatening, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the [unlimited] love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. ROMANS 8:31‭-‬39 AMP Read it, believe it and proclaim it.
