For Truth & Justice

Triumphant are the strong who write the right,
wring out the wrong,
defend the distraught and
confront liars, them to expose.

Hats off to heralds of truth who retract deceptive facts.
Against injustice, they hand out tracts and catch fraudsters, them to denounce.

Keep Moving – You are Somebody!!

Inspirational words/exhortation “Keep Moving” by Revd Martin Luther King Jnr (transcribed from a video)

This is the most important and crucial period of your lives…some of the things that should be in your life’s blueprint, you must have

1.A deep belief in your own dignity, in your own worth in your own somebodiness. Don’t allow anybody to make you feel you are a nobody. Always feel that you count.
Always feel that you have worth and always feel that your life has ultimate significance.

2.As a basic principle the determination to achieve excellence. In your various fields of endeavour are going to be deciding as years, days unfold what you will do in life, what your life’s work will be. Once you set out, do it and do it well. Be a bush if you can’t be a tree. If you can’t be a highway just be a trail. If you can’t be the sun just be a star, for it isn’t by size that you win or fail, be the best of whatever you are.

3.A commitment to the eternal principles of beauty, love and justice. Life has been for none of us a crystal stair but we must keep moving, we must keep going. If you can’t fly, run. If you can’t run, walk. If you can’t walk, crawl. But by all means keep moving!
#keepmoving

When I saw the video with above inspirational words by Revd Martin Luther King Jane on a friend’s Facebook page in March this year, it reminded me of a poem I wrote last year:

Ability To Be A Somebody

A nobody can become a
somebody some day.
If not today or tomorrow it
shall be one day, ’cause
everybody has the ability.

It is possible if you do not lose focus or direction but set your sights on your vision, based on wisdom from the Divine Book of instruction.

Use the key of divine knowledge to open doors. Advance at the beat of the sound of your vision calling,
the pace is set by the rhythm of the songs of your heart resounding.

In the ascent to be a somebody, joys and trials are unwrapped as gifts, moulding for you a heart of integrity.

The blessed vision is a reflection of the somebody you have aimed to be beckoning as from the sky,
full of wisdom and knowledge of the Most High.

Be a somebody today to help a nobody find their way some day.

Poetic Justice – Raising Awareness of a “Bloody” Business involving Black African Victims

Black is Not

Black is Not Slack or …Muck but of Value as any Race!

We must raise awareness to caution Africans so that they do not fall prey to those who have set up businesses to deceive them & trap them.. read on: Share this as widely as possible!

There are some fake agencies from China, Korea, Japan and other parts of Asia currently opened in Nigeria, Ghana and other African countries, promising jobs (domestic ones, such as house-keeping, baby-minding, etc).

However, on arrival, they turn you to anything less than human. Murdering Africans especially girls for their kidney, Heart and Liver. Mostly our own African brothers and Sisters involving in human tracking to Dubai, Cairo especially in Libya, Egypt and Lebanon.

The agents prepare travel documents and everything; when the victim reaches the destination, they begin to live in hell and chances of stayinh alive are slim.

Think of the life you might save (or multitude lives) by circulating this or speaking to someone about it. The one you might save could be your relative and if not they are God’s creation of equal value or worth to you in His eyes.

DO NOT STAY SILENT!!

Thank you

 

EXHORTATION – A Christlike Self Perspective: Never disabled, forever unstoppable

Let nothing & no one call you “disabled” (incapable, unable, unworthy, insignificant etc…)

Will you allow others to label you and so define you? Will you accept their definition of you as opposed to God’s ? The negative definition that seeps into not only your conscious mind but also your subconscious, resulting in self limitation, under-valuing your capabilities or even prevents you from seeing what you are capable of!

The state of being “disabled” whether physical or spiritual is a matter of perspective. If you have a life in God, one of your key taglines should be “I am always capable through Christ”. Don’t be like a prisoner
-who has had their chains removed but is still standing in a bound position.
-whose prison doors are open but he cannot see it and is still sitting in the prison. Jesus came to set the captives free (Isaiah 61).

When in Christ, there is nothing you cannot achieve in life, regardless of your

✝️physical state, Nick Vujicic is an example, he said
“I don’t believe I am disabled. Yes, I may have no limbs, but no big deal. It doesn’t matter how I look—
it’s WHO I AM and WHAT I CAN DO that matters!”
(in picture below) check out his life story and achievements to the glory of God.

✝️youth: David who became king of Israel was a youth when God started to use him. By God’s power and might he was able to fight against the lion and the bear while tending to his sheep in the wilderness.
He developed the “I can” self perspective that was from God, so that the giant enemy of Israel, Goliath feared by adults of the army of Israel was “chicken feed” in his eyes.
God brought David up to believe he could do all things through God who strengthened him. This ought to minister to us as to how to bring up children or young people. The perspective of one’s self is so important and will determine the course of one’s life.
In our day, God is using young people mighty as it was prophesied by the prophet Joel (Joel 2:25).

✝️little or no education: God gives wisdom and ability to excel for His sake and there are many cases of men and women of God who have not had the privilege of being educated at all or have very elementary education, who are doing exploits for God while demonstrating His wisdom and anointing as they do so.

Let us always see ourselves as children of God who can do all things through Him and Him alone.
Jesus said
“5I am the vine, ye [are] the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
6If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast [them] into the fire, and they are burned.”(John 15:5-6 KJV)

It is time for us to discard limiting self-perspectives and live in the reality of Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”

Call to Prayer: Arise!

(PROPHETIC WORD POEM OF INSPIRATION TO THE CHRISTIAN )

img_3208

The mantel of prayer
is a gift to you, disciple of Christ,
not to a specific priest so accept it
as a sword to wield in the battle field.

Firebrand!

Let the flames of prayer be released
from within to set alight Satan’s plans
and to ignite the Word of truth in God’s sons.
Watchman!

Look to see and hear the LORD.
Sound the alarm at the enemy’s advance
upon man and with the armies of God
shoot the arrow at the hordes of hell as
a protector and defender of man.
Warrior!

As an impenetrable wall,
the LORD entreats that your prayer rain is released to fall
as fire and brimstone for the retreat of the armies of hell,
for He says
“The thief only comes to steal, kill, and destroy.

I came that they may have life, and may have it abundantly.”(1)

Intercessor!

Forever seated in heavenly places
and in oneness with Spirit and Royal High Priest,
be a bridge for the crossing over into God’s turf,
a mother to carry the vision unto birth and
a midwife, for the bringing forth of God’s plans.

Arise!

Firebrand,

Watchman,

Warrior,

Intercessor,

stand in unity on the Rock of Salvation,
your Foundation Stone who is Christ,
the Chief Cornerstone. ©2016 Deborah E. Nyamekye
Quote (1) John 10:10WEB

Note: The bible is full of phrases about God’s promises to God’s children. Believers in Christ are declared overcomers from every power of evil against our lives and guaranteed restoration and healing from afflictions. However we must also remember that we have a calling to be God’s vessels or witnesses through Christ Jesus.

Manifestation of promises and blessings of God are conditional to our obedience which is demonstrated through our yieldedness to God in all areas of our lives. Prayer is communicating with God and when we pray it means we are saying “LORD, I accept you as controller of my life and therefore present to you every area of my life as well as my loved ones and the world at large. What concerns you concerns me and therefore I present every issue before you trusting you will outwork it for your good and to the glory of your name” You must also realise that God wants you to be part of the solution to some of your prayer requests as He plans to use believers in Christ for the fulfilment of His plans on earth. Are you available?

This poem is part of a collection of poems in my books – Our God Reigns: Inspirational Prophetic Christian Poetry Part 1 & 2 available on Kindle at Amazon.com in early January they will be available in Paperback.

A Human Being? Then there is always more for You!

A word of encouragement:

img_2784

All God’s creation have potential to survive and to advance and so excel beyond what they think they are capable of.

The key to not only know this truth but ensure it manifests in one’s life is to partner with the I Am, who is the same yesterday today and forevermore more.

If He is what He is, He gave you and I potential by His Spirit through His son, Jesus to be as Him in our nature and supernatural ability, for we are created in His magnificent and glorious image.

It is time to excel beyond your current state in every area of your life! Take a hold of God given strategies, examples of victorious experiences or case studies through His Word (the Bible) as well as present day testimonies and be motivated, encouraged and inspired.

If God can do it for others, know that He loves you just as much and will do it (whatever it is you desire) for you too.

May God bless you!

Cultivating Harmonious Co-Existence from a Christian Perspective

-The “1-2-3 Domino effect” of the Two Greatest Commandments & the Power of forgiveness

“How we see ourselves, how we conduct our interpersonal relationships are fruitful unto God, only if our relationship with God is according to His commands”

“Master, which [is] the great commandment in the law?37Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.38This is the first and great commandment.39And the second [is] like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself upon these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.” (Matthew 22:36-40 KJV).

Point 1 – Point 2 – Point 3 Domino Effect
Let us ensure that the two greatest commandments are always at the forefront of our minds so that we
POINT 1 – Sustain a love-filled relationship with God through a worshipful life (e.g. bible study, praise, prayer..) which includes focus on God in all that we do and do them as unto Him.
This is the only way we can
POINT 2 – Love ourselves because it is in this place (intimacy with God) that we learn to love ourselves by understanding who we are in God and who He is to us.
As a result of Point 2 out-worked from Point 1 of the 1-2-3 Domino Effect (whatever position we hold in the Body of Christ or society – in God’s eyes a servant’s heart is the mark of an obedient heart – Jesus is our example),

We are able to
POINT 3 – Love our neighbours (anyone: friend, spouse, colleague, acquaintance etc…however they treat us); this means we are able to demonstrate God’s love through us to others meaning
– we are able to have compassion for people,
– empathise with them,
– care about their feelings so as to be cautious how we treat them, ensuring we are not doing or saying anything to hurt them nor imposing our will or controlling them and
-treat others as we would like to be treated.
Prayer: Father, help us in our weakness so that we live according to these two greatest commandments. Thank you for answering this prayer in my life and that of my brethren. In Jesus’ mighty name I pray Amen.
The Power of Forgiveness

Satan exerts himself in his attempt to ruin interpersonal relationships in general and especially those between Christian friends, spouses, ministers, work colleagues and acquaintances, because he is a sly crafty, cunning fool who will do anything to attempt to bring chaos in the harmony that is the “1-2-3 Domino Effect” of the Two Greatest commandments.
Let us take heed not to let the hurts inflicted upon us from childhood through to adulthood or what people are doing currently to hurt or upset us (it may not even be deliberate) prevent us from having or sustaining the peace we have in the knowledge that we are lovable or significant human beings created in the image of God and restored as such through Christ for His pleasure and purposes. The born again experience opens the door for us to be healed from lies satan has said about who we are and our worth especially through others. Our healing starts with forgiving all those who have hurt us directly or indirectly and contributed to these lies about our identity and worth.
Forgiveness by God and therefore making peace with Him is conditional to our forgiving others. This is why Jesus included these words in the prayer he taught his disciples to pray 12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. (Matthew 6:12KJV).
There is an assumption in this prayer that Jesus’ disciples know that they should forgive others so that God will forgive them.
Jesus emphasised the importance of praying that way (verse 12) by saying: “14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: 15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.” (Matthew 6:14-15 KJV).
When we forgive it means we are no longer sinning against God, for un-forgiveness is a sin. Therefore through forgiveness of others we receive forgiveness from Father God which results in our being cleansed from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9). This makes a way for us to have fellowship with God through the Holy Spirit. Many of us have heard about how people have been healed from physical and emotional sickness when they consciously forgave others who had hurt or afflicted them. Forgiveness is very powerful. Un-forgiveness is a decision not to demonstrate the love of God to our “neighbour” (Point 3 of 1-2-3 Domino Effect), it is therefore disobedience. Disobedience is sin and sin separates us from God. Sin prevents us from loving God with all our heart, mind and soul (Point 1 of 1-2-3 Domino Effect). Without loving God, we cannot see ourselves the way God sees us nor love ourselves as He loves us (Point 2 of 1-2-3 Domino Effect).

Even as believers in Christ, if we refuse to forgive others, the resulting separation from God and being blinded to His truths and our identity in Him is such that we increasingly become self-dependent, self-indulgent or self-centered beings which are all marks of the fallen nature which is the image or reflection of Lucifer the fallen angel called Satan. Lucifer’s transformation from being an angel who was dependent on God and worshipped Him to become a self-centered angel manifested as pride. Self-centeredness and self-elevation are synonymous. In his pride, Satan wanted to take the place of God, to ascend the throne of God (Isaiah 14). Pride comes before the fall indeed, for Lucifer fell and anyone who detracts from living to be who God created them to be, in His image that is, is destined to reflect Satan’s prideful image unto destruction.
Forgiveness is the key to overcoming Satan’s attempts at creating discord, causing contention and hatred between Christians so that they do not demonstrate the love of God for one another (Point 3 of the 1-2-3 Domino Effect). This is often because when people are hurt, they are likely to fall into temptation as they are angry, discouraged, disappointed and begin to exercise thoughts of retaliation which range from either not speaking to the one who has hurt them or doing something to hurt them as well.
Your “neighbour” is not necessarily a fellow Christian and approaching them to make peace means you desire to obey God’s command that you love your neighbour. Your neighbour could also be your enemy, in relation to this Jesus taught as follows:
You have heard the law that says, ‘Love your neighbor’ and hate your enemy. 44 But I say, love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you! 45 In that way, you will be acting as true children of your Father in heaven. For he gives his sunlight to both the evil and the good, and he sends rain on the just and the unjust alike. 46 If you love only those who love you, what reward is there for that? Even corrupt tax collectors do that much. (Matthew 5:43-46 NLT)
The importance of forgiveness is reinforced by Jesus, expressing the heart of God on the matter, when he said that
-you must forgive those who have sinned against you not 7 times but 70 x 7 times (Matthew 18:21-22); In other words forgiveness should be a perpetual lifestyle attitude of a children of God.
-when you are bringing your offering to God and you remember that someone has something against you then you must first go and reconcile with them before doing so. (Matthew 5:23-24)
To emphasis the point about Jesus wanting us to love our enemies and pray for those who persecute us, he also said that in so doing we “will be acting as true children” of our Father in Heaven (Matt.5:45NLT). In other words we would be acting as a loving Father. God also loves and cares about that person (whether they are Christians or not) who has something against you or who has afflicted you and so should you is what Jesus was effectively saying in these aforementioned verses in the biblical book of Matthew (Chapters 18:21/5:23-24, 43-46); The phrase “..He (God) gives his sunlight to both the evil and the good, and He sends rain on the just and the unjust alike” sums God’s impartiality clearly and powerfully. (Matt.5:46NLT).
It is evident therefore that the responsibility to cultivate harmonious co-existence through expressing the Love of God, lies with the disciple of Jesus and forgiveness is the key. When used therefore, this key not only opens the door to a sustained relationship of love with God but it also serves to keep us within the cyclical realm of the 1-2-3 Domino Effect of the Two Greatest Commandments all the days of our lives.

Poem: God’s Bridge of Love

You are a bridge of love for your neighbour to traverse and progress in my love, no more to transgress nor regress and drown in sin.
Your neighbor is one who
favours my conditional love or labours for artificial love.

Pour thy love upon me that
my treasury shall release plenty
into thy poverty, and you shall see my face unveiled, for at my gaze shall you know your worth.

When you walk with me as my bride and talk of me with pride, as a living sacrifice, and demonstrate my love to the loveless,
promote my Word to enemies
and use the key of forgiveness,
Then shall I draw near to you, and shall show you forth as a shofar with the sound “GOD IS LOVE”.
A passage of refuge for multitudes to know and abide in my LOVE.
