Recently, I’ve been studying a lot about Jesus Christ as a ChristKind, one of His Kind.

(I imagined it’s natural that I learn more of Who I am; a Kind of Who I am by the power of Holy Spirit)

In one of His Word, Jesus says: “So this is my command: Love each other deeply,
as much as I have loved you”

Now, there’s always a supernatural confirmation of His Word – especially when we are sincere to live just like Him in this world

One of my associates called me last week, that his younger brother and his family relocated to another country (from UK
to somewhere else), leaving most of their summer clothing, shoes, belts and other stuff

My associate packed all the stuff back here and wondered if I’ll be interested in them as part of my Gospel messages, to be given out to less privileged as he called me

There exist two categories of sin: original and personal (sin is sin though)

We’ll rather call Adam’s disobedience “original sin” because it was the first incidence of sin

All sinfulness in all people throughout all time can be traced back to his tragic choice refer Gen 3:17-19
Each of us has inherited a diseased nature that is bent toward wrongdoing, so much so that we cannot resist the temptation to sin

In this sense, sin is universal

When, individually, we choose to disobey, sin has become personal
“But the one who indulges in a sinful life is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the beginning

The reason the Son of God was revealed was to undo and destroy the works of the devil”

Will you “Come to Jesus” as He calls?

I’ve been having a real blast with Holy Spirit – my SuperAlly today.. highlights below:

He is so personable you know? He usually takes on great roller-coaster of amusement, you’ll be giggling in ecstasy, you don’t want it to end

Perhaps because today is TGIF – there’s Anana
Concert later today where we’ll be immersed in the cloud of Glory (details in attached flyer; if He bids you to attend, you’ll sure be grateful you did)

Perhaps because today marks Two weeks He’s asked me to be posting specifically about Jesus Christ, the Gospel,
Ceasing from striving/entering God’s rest (Sabbath Rest) – He confirmed His Word also in the testimony from one of the Glories He’s given me this morning which I posted earlier today

He reminded me of what He says to me at 12:30PM, Thursday April 29th 2021 – exactly a week

There are 3p’s enemies of the Sabbath rest:

Presumption:
The notion that we understand exactly what we need and how to get it or the precise nature of our problem and how to solve it

We at times turn to work, food, alcohol, sex, or worse to ease emotional pain
We feed our hunger for significance by chasing relationships, pursuing positions of power or fame, or exhausting all our resources in support of some noble cause

We create and nurture the illusion of security by filling bank account, fretting over every new medical report
Panic:
Tendency to react to needs or difficulties impulsively

Very often we leap into action and apply a familiar fix without considering unseen issues or lasting consequences

It’s not enough merely to believe there is a God. You must believe in the God Who is there

To enter our Sabbath rest, we must come to God in humble submission to His truth and in complete dependence upon Him

In order to cease our striving, we must transfer our trust away from Image
our own abilities, our own accomplishments, our own strength, and place it on His provision

In six days, God created the world, gave it order and purpose, and then imbued it with life and everything needed for it to flourish

Then, on the seventh day, He ceased all activity to
survey His handiwork and declare it “Good”

It was complete!

Entering this Sabbath rest has both temporal and eternal significance

Transferring trust away from our own capacity to earn a place in heaven and placing it upon God’s provision is the essence of salvation - Gospel!

When we read the scriptures (by the way, I’m on my 8th different Bible version, reading the Bible back-to-back in the last One Year. And I’m still reading), the Word comes alive by the power of Holy Spirit!

Records of OT scriptures are usually prelude to the real deal in NT
I’ve always wondered why Joseph and Mary would have to escape to Egypt with Jesus Christ – God in human flesh in order to avoid Him being killed by the usurper Caesar Augustus turned Herod

Why? Jesus Christ is God! He could have just supernaturally wiped out every obstacle to
His earthly purpose – including Herod!

The escape to Egypt however, is to retrace the steps of the Exodus (OT Israelites in exile)

So, Jesus Christ left Egypt for the land that God had promised to Israel! (can you see the scriptures?)

Indeed, Jesus would be the Israel God

Jesus Christ speaking about the worth/value of being a ChristKind, uses this illustration/parable below:
“Heaven’s kingdom realm can be illustrated like this:”
“A person discovered that there was hidden treasure in a field. Upon finding it, he hid it again. Because of uncovering
such treasure, he was overjoyed and sold all that he possessed to buy the entire field just so he could have the treasure”
Above parable describes me – Bro Samuel Tope-Ojo’s current position as a ChristKind
I’ve actually searched for the Truth (Christ) for so long before Christ
found me Himself and brings me into Himself by the power of Holy Spirit
In my years of this search for the Truth, religion failed me. Doctrines failed me. Denominations failed me. Philosophy failed me.
They all only helped in pushing me to an utter position of exasperation

The sum total of life is Christ

Without Christ, life makes no sense nor meaning

Christ is the Gospel and the Gospel is about giving. Giving is living

Whenever Jesus Christ shows up, He doesn’t just preach the Gospel

He’s either healing the sick, opening eyes/ears of the
blind/deaf, delivering the oppressed of devil, making resources available, raising the dead or even feeding the multitudes

We don't lack what we distribute. We only lack what we don't give out

When we give money, encouraging words or help others to feel good about themselves,
it lifts them and the giver out of defeat, discouragement

Giving propels us to victory

I – Bro Samuel Tope-Ojo am a Giver! I am blessed to be blessing to all

I have received the power of the kingdom of God freely by the power of Holy Spirit, so freely I dispense eternal

It’s exactly a year ago that I commenced my ChristKind journey in God’s Kingdom. Glory!!!
I’ve been filled with Holy Spirit prior to May 2020 but I was yet to start walking and working in the Supernatural, preaching Christ
The very first time I’ll call up someone on phone to pray
for him/her (can’t remember again now), was during the covid lockdown in year 2020
My legs almost would not hold me, I was practically shaking like jelly fish silently hoping the call would not go through, so I could relax
Fortunately, the person picked the call at almost the
last ring!
I remember I practically mumbled through the 2 or 3 sentences of prayer of healing within seconds and ended the call. The person confirmed his/her instant healing afterwards to the glory of God!
How has the journey been in one year?
I can only summarize it this way:

When you are full of Holy Spirit, the Word (logos) comes alive when you read

Holy Spirit gives you deeper understanding, He even teach you the Word

Apostle John in the opening Word of his Gospel gave an account that reach back to a time before Genesis 1:1
He tells us that “In the beginning,” – before God created the heavens and the earth, the Word (Greek word logos) existed!

This Apostle pointed to something that existed before eternity past, farther back than our finite minds can conceive

Before the earth, before the planets
and stars, before light or darkness, matter or time – in a beginning that never really had a beginning, the Word (logos) was already existing!

The Word (logos) had no “starting point.”

Eternally existing, the Word (logos) was with God and the Word (logos) was God

Who is Jesus?

For most people even amongst the Christians, there’s challenge correlating Jesus of history and the Christ of Christian faith together

Many opinions also surround the person and works of Jesus Christ

Jesus speaking in the scriptures says: ‘even though you do not
believe me, believe the works (that I do), that you may know and understand that the Father is in me, and I in the Father’

Nicodemus, a member of the Jewish Supreme Court in ancient days came to see Jesus under the cover of the night. Nicodemus wanted to ‘know’ more of Jesus
that all of a sudden is making nonsense of all their hard-held beliefs

In John 3:10, Jesus called him “the teacher of Israel” (Now pay attention to this. Jesus didn’t call Nicodemus “a teacher of Israel” – suggesting Nicodemus was perhaps the most intelligent, best known or the

There is a pattern of ministrations that Holy Spirit (my SuperAlly) has been bringing to me lately

Believers that are losing consciousness of their identity as “sons of the Most-High, God’s representatives on earth”

And this is as a result of life issues/challenges they are
facing

For the umpteenth time my dear brethren, you need entrench the following infallible Truth about you, very deliberately in your consciousness:

•In this life, you are created in God’s Image and Likeness
•You are created to take Dominion – Reign and Rule over the earth
(all other creatures of God)
•You are created as God’s representative on earth!

You can only worry and sincerely be bothered if you are yet to come home to Christ (like the prodigal son), accepting Him as your Lord and Savior and be filled with Holy Spirit

There is one of the hymns we used to sing that’s making better meaning to me now, that I am full of Holy Spirit (Oh Sweet Holy Spirit.. there’s a way He makes Word come alive!)

The chorus of the hymn goes thus:

O, the children of the Lord have a right to shout and sing
For the
way is growing bright, and our souls are on the wings;
We are going by and by to the palace of the King!
Glory to God, Hallelujah!

As Christians – lovers of God, we walk on the highway of light, and our way shines brighter and brighter until the perfect day
We are not deterred by any distraction on the way. We are too focused on Christ, full of Holy Spirit, serving God!

We have the name of Jesus and must be confident in it, using the name for Signs, Wonders and Miracles.

Christians who do not preach the Gospel (Christ) are not

Dear family, kindly permit me please, to express my sincere and hearth-felt appreciation with this testimony (a bit long pls), to also proof that Holy Spirit is VERY REAL in the lives of us ChristKinds. And please note that in this world, we are indeed the Supernatural Advantage!
I will not be silent, I will always worship and praise our God. For the Testimony of Jesus, is the Spirit of Prophecy!

Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen.

GSWMI/PSSBC were powerfully and gracefully present

The Bible, talking about Jesus says: “God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God”

Consequence of this is that every Christian (born again) has become “the righteousness of God”
We are Righteous and not sin-conscious/sinner! (Now religion and doctrines will not let you know this…)

How do we attain Salvation? Just by 2 simple steps: Believe (Faith) and Confess Jesus Christ. (Refer Romans 10)

So, Faith is the Most Critical Factor in the life of every
Christian. For without Faith, we cannot please God. (Refer Hebrews 11)

If by Faith (believe) and my confession I get saved, then also by Faith, I accept my new reality as the Righteousness of God. (And in fact, as basis of every of my interactions with God)

The ‘Newness’ of life that comes with accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior is simply out of this world. (Sincerely).

When we are filled with Holy Spirit and are led by Him, we transform to Supernatural being with ability of Christ and even more! (Now you just try Him!) Image
Since I came into Christ, I’ve been working and walking the Supernatural very effortlessly with obvious evidences – something I had erroneous belief was only limited to ‘super-anointed’ ‘upper-class’ ‘erujeje (awesome)’ ‘ministers’…
Now, my Word, in the name of Jesus, is Life and is Spirit unto everyone and every element I speak unto.

For I carry within me, ‘Jesus without borders – Holy Spirit’! and I have become the Supernatural Advantage to our world! Hallelujah!!!

There was a season in my life that I was in utter turmoil

Restless and exhausted; troubles met me at every turn

Outwardly I faced conflicts and inwardly emotional turmoil every single day and for years

As a promoted senior management staff of a Tier-1 Nigerian bank,
with chauffer driven brand new 4-wheel-drive official car at a time and for years; I was always in distress in spite of my seeming ‘flashy’ appearances

Many a times, I’ll be moved to want to jump on the 3ML bridge into the lagoon, commit suicide and end it all..
I was under the oppression of sin (was engaged in some extramarital affairs! yes – affairs thinking that would ease the tension on me…)

Religion couldn’t help me! I was in earnest search of peace, it remained elusive..

Then Christ found me! And at November 2019 GSWMI NoG,

Many years ago before I got married, I would wake up in tongues at odd hours of the night and start interceding.

With my eyes closed, I’ll begin to see houses in the area and by revelation begin to call out issues in that house and praying for them.

It lasted an hour each time.
I remember when I got married, the same thing started happening.

I would see like a locator pin on the house, see a name and like a scroll showing the challenge(s) of that person or family or sometimes even the house.

The Holy Spirit would tell me of things planted there.
On one such occasion, there was a house in the vicinity that was known to just swallow up destinies.

It was the cheapest house there and had a strange broom strung by the entrance.

It was dirty with a foreboding shadow of darkness - the woman who owned it sold ėkó.

Every man has a story. Our stories are what makes us human. The stories that interest me the most are those in which the Holy Spirit changes the course of one’s life.

I recall his story.

A new party had finally taken over the political sphere of the country.
There was so much jubilation but with it came a witch-hunt on those who were enjoying the dividends of the previous administration.

EFCC didn’t waste time. His accounts were frozen and he was invited and grilled.

His passport was seized.
Things took a downward spiral and life became difficult.

His wife had to get several loans to assist where necessary and that took a toll on her.

An assistant branch manager who still took Tricycle to work daily. The children had to change schools.

A great meditation for times of streamed virtual eucharist at home.

An Old Irish poem on pilgrimmage to Rome, scribbled by a monk /copyist in the margins of a manuscript. Paraphrased. If you haven't met the crucified and risen lord at home you wont find him there, Rome or host
Couldn't find the Old Irish. Translation by Kuno Meyer (1911)

2nd NOVEMBER: ALL SOULS' DAY (THE COMMEMORATION OF ALL THE FAITHFUL DEPARTED)

1. By purgatory, no more is meant than a middle state of souls; viz., of purgation from sin by temporary chastisements, or a punishment of some sin inflicted after
#AllSoulsDay #purgatory
2. death, which is not eternal.

As to the place, manner, or kind of these sufferings, nothing has been defined by the Church,it is interwoven with the fundamental articles of the Christian faith.

For, as eternal torments are the portion of all souls which

ALL SAINTS

~thread~
1. The Church in this great festival honours all the saints. It is an image of that eternal great feast which God himself continually celebrates in heaven with all his saints, whom we humbly join in praising his adorable goodness
#AllSaintsDay #AllSaints
2. for all his mercies.

In this and all other festivals of the saints, God is the only object of supreme worship.

To what an immense height of immortal glory has he raised the saints! and by what means? His grace conducted them by humility, patience, charity, and penance,

And casting their crowns before his throne they give to him all the glory of their triumphs. "His gifts alone in us he crowns."
