John. 8:32 "You will know the truth and the truth will make you free"
When Jesus made this statement, He wasn't talking to people walking in chains and fetters no! But He implied they were bound.

Why so?

Because they were! And the chains that held them were far from physical.
These men spoke logic, ate and drank the best meals and had the best clothing yet when God looked at them, He said "bound! bound! bound!"

You see the thing with chains is that after one has put them on for such a long time,
the wearer becomes comfortable with it and these chains could be ideologies, belief systems or mindsets.

Ever wondered why you (used to) think the way you do or find yourself incapable of attaining certain heights or embracing certain realities?
Well, the good news is truth has the power to set free! Truth, when applied can set free the hearers.

Truth is a person, Truth is Jesus Christ and He has [given] the power to set free!

Between you and the world!

The interface you have between you and the world are your social media pages! You are your tweets!

It's easy to try to dissociate yourself from the posts you make when they seem embarrassing or "not-befitting" but people will judge you from ur posts
.. I want the world to know I'm a believer raised by the Holy Spirit and the finest of men @GbengaWemimo I'm also walking in purpose and helping people be the be the best they could be!
So before you make a post that's public please know that it's beyond rts and likes.. It's a part of you the world sees and would most likely relate with you with. Be intentional about the things you share with the world.

Been waiting for the right time to post this; Thread!
Earlier this year, after being away for a period of 8 years, I took a visit to my former church, my childhood church. (I grew up in Port Harcourt and had most of my early experiences there)
I stepped into the church and I realized that nothing changed!

I mean, of course there was better infrastructure and tech but I'm talking about the people... let me explain

Truth be told, the fields are ripe and ready for harvest!

There's too many fields of people searching for God in one way or the other, People ranging from business owners to people still trying to put it together, the gays, critics, atheists and people who grew up in
religious homes without ever coming to a knowledge of God, what I'm saying in all is that there is a lot of work for us to do as believers. A lot of fields to be ploughed and cities to be occupied. If we are to see the Kingdoms of this world become..
...the Kingdoms of our God and His Christ then we need to get over ourselves, our desires and our ego and START reaching out for the unoccupied lands. The people who grope in darkness need to see [your] light. Are you preaching the gospel or is it just "vibes?"

A gospel of the senses, a gospel that insists that one plus one must make two! A gospel that makes sense, a gospel having a form of godliness but denying the power thereof. This kind of gospel has been in existence and forewarned of.
There's nothing natural about the life of a believer! From the birth of Jesus to His death, everything that defined Him was marked with the supernatural! That was the life He died for you to live. The life the Holy Spirit came to give!
How do you explain turning water to wine, or bringing money out of the mouth of a fish? If you wanted wine you could have visited the wine shop and last time I checked, fishes don't go around with monies in their bellies. My dear,

The cycle is the same,
The prayers, everly shuffled,

Lord, I want to get closer to you,
Let me have a deeper walk with you,

As though God Himself doesn't want a closer relationship with you even,

Why do I keep rising and falling?

Why can't I experience you in your fullness?
The truth is,
If you want to have a deeper relationship with the Holy Spirit,

You have to learn to STAY with Him, incorporate Him into your daily activities.

"I and my Father are one" is not just meant to be a declaration..

It's a reality, available for you and I
Learn to stay in God, learn to stay in His word..

Avoid/boycott distractions if you have to..

Nothing is worth your relationship with God...

Thank you.

Woke up in the early hours of this morning to a thief being caught downstairs at our apartment.
He was in his 20s, a fine young boy, apparently he had almost made away with our neighbour's diesel engine before being caught by the vigilante(s).
As it is with Nigerian culture, he was beaten Chinese before he was handed over to the police.

This happened when we usually have our morning devotion 5am.

(The whole incident took about 2hrs.)
