Housekeeping... Because I Love My Country

GONE FROM PREACHING TO MEDDLING
...Spiritual Motivation to Quicken your Spirit...
The unnecessary “gospel of hate” which is termed “Congoo/Country divide” will not survive in Liberia. Hatred has done nothing for Liberia. Never mind that this hatred is constantly gift wrapped in beautiful packaging and presented to the vulnerable citizenry, it has no place in this country. Hate did not survive yesterday; neither will it survive today nor tomorrow. Seeds of hate will not germinate. Flowers of hate will not bloom. Plants and shrubs of hate will wither. Trees and greenery of hate will decay. Hate has done absolutely nothing for Liberia. Hate as a commodity must be rejected.

“You didn’t choose me. I choose you. I appointed you to go and produce lasting fruit, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask for, using my name. This is my command: Love each other.” (John 15:16-17 Holy Bible NLT)

...Spiritual Motivation to Quicken your Spirit...
Hatred has destroyed the real Liberia. Hate has caused us to lose our identity. Hate has stolen our culture. Hate ravished our generation. Hatred choked the life out of our way of life. Hate suffocated our lifestyle. Hate dimmed our national light. The Liberian way of living is almost forgotten. Liberia has become a melting pot of confused, missed identity. Hate has done absolutely nothing for Liberia. Hate as a national pastime must be rejected.

"This is my command: Love each other.” (John 15:17 Holy Bible NLT)

...Spiritual Motivation to Quicken your Spirit...
No matter what fancy names are given to this ongoing wave of hatred, it will dismantle and deteriorate. Hate has placed Liberia permanently, it seem, at the bottom of the social ladder of nations. Hate has caused massive intellectual disability. In today Liberia, a staggering two-thirds of the population is illiterate. Hate has stenched our political atmosphere. Hate has polluted our landscape. Hate has dismantled our infrastructure. So much hate is being spewed out daily in the name of “Congoo/Country” divide. The spewers cannot tell that they are the very ones being fleeced by these propagators of the hate gospel. Hate has done absolutely nothing for Liberia. My friend, if you care one ounce about your Liberian heritage, you must work towards eliminating hatred in whatever way you can. Hate must be rejected in the Republic of Liberia.

Prayer Moves God's Hand...Fasting Lifts His Arms

IF YOU can … Take a Three-Day fast from today Wednesday through Good Friday. Here are several options.
Three-Hours (9:00 am-12:00 noon; 12:00 pm-3:00 pm)
Half Day (6:00 am-12:00 noon; 12:00 noon-6:00 pm)
Full Day (6:00 am-6:00 pm)
If you cannot do daytime, try nighttime fasting.
Full Night (6:00 pm-9:00 am next day) or (8:00 pm-12:00 next day)

My friend, it is known that PRAYER moves the Hand of God. I always go further and say Fasting lifts His arms. There are some things in your life that will not budge until you pray it away and out of your space. A real sacrifice must cost you something. It must discomfort you in some way. The sacrifice of The Cross costs God everything. In return mankind received everything. Everything!!!
Are you comfortable with your spaces… Your personal space? Your children/husband/family space? Your professional space? Your mental and psychological space? Your wallet space? Your spiritual space? Your emotional space? Your health and aging space? Your soon to be retirement space? Are you satisfied with your spaces and the sometimes invaders of those spaces? My friend…

Some things will not budge out of your space until YOU PRAY it away. Until YOU PRAY and YOU FAST it away. With God every little effort is noticed, and it counts towards you favorably. Our patriarch of the faith Father Abraham trusted God and it was accounted to him for righteousness. TRUST the Lord enough to fast for Jesus.  I love you, my friend, with a sisterly love.
Happy Solemn Wednesday of Holy Week. 

Blessings and peace,

The Last Words of Jesus on The Cross

The Last words spoken by Jesus Christ as our Lord hung on the Cross at Calvary.

1st (First) Word of The Cross
“Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.”
 Scripture Reference: Luke 23:32-37
“And when they came to the place that is called The Skull, there they crucified him, and the criminals, one on his right and one on his left. And said, ‘Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.’ And they cast lots to divide his garments. And the people stood by, watching, but the rulers scoffed at him, saying, ‘He saved others; let him save himself, if he is the Christ of God, his Chosen One! The soldiers also mocked him, coming up and offering him sour wine and saying, ‘If you are the King of the Jews, save yourself!’”

2nd (Second) Word of The Cross
"Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in Paradise."
 Scripture Reference: Luke 23:39-43
“One of the criminals who were hanged railed at him, saying, ‘Are you not the Christ? Save yourself and us!’ But the other rebuked him, saying, ‘Do you not fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation? And we indeed justly, for we are receiving the due reward of our deeds; but this man has done nothing wrong.’ And he said, ‘Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.’ And Jesus said to him, “Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in paradise.”

 3rd (Third) Word of The Cross
Woman, behold, your son! … Behold, your mother!
 Scripture Reference: John 19:23-27
“When the soldiers had crucified Jesus, they took his garments and divided them into four parts, one part for each soldier; also his tunic. But the tunic was seamless, woven in one piece from top to bottom, so they said to one another, ‘Let us not tear it, but cast lots for it to see whose it shall be.’ This was to fulfill the Scripture which says, ‘They divided my garments among them, and for my clothing they casts lots.’ So the soldiers did these things, but standing by the cross of Jesus were his mother and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdelene. When Jesus saw His mother and the disciple whom He loved standing nearby, He said to His mother, “Woman, behold your son!” Then He said to the disciple, “Behold, your mother!” And from that hour the disciple took her to his own home.”

4th (Fourth) Word of The Cross
“Eloi, Eloi, lema Sabachthani?”
(Translated: “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”)
 Scripture Reference: Mark 15:33-36
“And when the sixth hour had come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour. And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, ‘Eloi, Eloi, lema Sabachthani?’ which means, ‘My God my God why have you forsaken me?’ And some of the bystanders hearing it said, behold he is calling Elijah. And someone ran and filled a sponge with sour wine, put it on a reed and gave it to him to drink, saying wait, let us see whether Elijah will come to take him down.”

5th (Fifth) Word of The Cross
“I Thirst.”
Scripture Reference: John 19:29
“After this, Jesus knowing that all was now finished said (to fulfill the Scripture), ‘I Thirst’.”

6th (Sixth) Word of the Cross. 
“It is Finished.”
Scripture Reference: John 19:30
“When Jesus had received the sour wine, he said, ‘It is finished,’ and he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.”

7th (Seventh) Word of The Cross
“Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.”
Scripture Reference: Luke 23:44-49
“It was now about the sixth hour, and there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour, while the sun’s light failed. And the curtain of the temple was torn in two. Then Jesus, calling out with a loud said, ‘Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.’ And having said this, he breathed his last. Now when the centurion saw what had taken place, he praised God, saying, ‘Certainly, this man was innocent!’ And all the crowds that had assembled for this spectacle when they saw what had taken place, returned home beating their breasts. And all his acquaintances and the women who had followed him from Galilee stood at a distance watching these things.”

What YOU can do today. Recognize you are a sinner and need for Jesus to cleanse your life. Bow your head in acknowledgement of God's plan for your salvation. Pray to Almighty God in the name of Jesus Christ: Accept that Jesus is the son of God. Believe that Christ came and died for your sins. Confess your need for a savior. Ask Jesus Christ to come into your life and become your Lord and Savior. Get a Holy Bible. Begin a relationship with Jesus Christ, buttressed by prayer and guidance by the Holy Spirit. Live your life for the Glory of Almighty God. Do It For Christ.
