Glory be to God on high, and peace to men of goodwill. Thank You Father for watching over us all through the night and another glorious day You have made and we shall rejoice and be glad in it. Thank You for Your immeasurable love and peace that overflows our heart and body, glory be to You on high. What a wonderful Father is our God. Thank for Your infinite Nature for You will know our beginning to our end. Blessed be You on high.

Beloved, good morning, how are doing? Good to be in the presence of God. It’s so refreshing and energy boosting. Praise the Lord. It is interesting to know that the way we come to God is our business but the way we leave is God’s business, am so exciting about that. Praise the Lord.

Once again we are going to lean backward to leap forward. What do I mean by that? We just want to have another look at the person of Jesus, His death and resurrection and the effect of these to us.

Beloved the death and resurrection our Lord Jesus is our hope and ticket to eternity. And if Christ has not risen from the dead and if all our hope in Christ is in this present life the book of first Corinthians fifteen verse nineteen says we are of men most miserable. Thank God that is not our testimonies. For we testify about the risen Christ who also is the first fruit from the dead.

So we look up to Christ not only while we are here; we also look up to Him beyond here (1 Cor 15:20-24).

Having been delivered from the pang of death we must also work hard to ensure that we stay free from every manipulation of this freedom by satan. Praise Jesus.

Yesterday we Jesus the rose of Sharon today you will meet Jesus the resurrection and life. Glory be to Him alone in Jesus Name.

Join as we take a long look from where begotten us from and make every effort not to go back because backwardness is death but in Christ, our chief corner stone is eternal life (Heb 11:13) Praise the Lord.

Join me for more discovery:


“But now is Christ risen from the dead.” 1Corinthians 15:20


The whole system of Christianity rests upon the fact that “Christ is risen from the dead;” for, “If Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain: ye are yet in your sins.” The divinity of Christ finds its surest proof in His resurrection, since He was “Declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead.”

It would not be unreasonable to doubt His Deity if He had not risen. Moreover, Christ’s sovereignty depends upon His resurrection, “For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that He might be Lord both of the dead and living.”

Again, our justification, that choice blessing of the covenant, is linked with Christ’s triumphant victory over death and the grave; for “He was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification.” Nay, more, our very regeneration is connected with His resurrection, for we are “Begotten again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.”

And most certainly our ultimate resurrection rests here, for, “If the Spirit of Him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, He that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by His Spirit that dwelleth in you.” If Christ be not risen, then shall we not rise; but if He be risen then they who are asleep in Christ have not perished, but in their flesh shall surely behold their God.

Thus, the silver thread of resurrection runs through all the believer’s blessings, from his regeneration onwards to his eternal glory, and binds them together. How important then will this glorious fact be in his estimation, and how will he rejoice that beyond a doubt it is established, that “now is Christ risen from the dead.”

“The promise is fulfill’d,
Redemption’s work is done,
Justice with mercy’s reconciled,
For God has raised His Son.”

Thank be to the risen Christ through whom all believed will rise in glory on that glorious morning. Praise be to Him on high. Beloved come let us discover more testimonies:


“The only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.” John 1:14

Believer, YOU can bear your testimony that Christ is the only begotten of the Father, as well as the first begotten from the dead. You can say, “He is divine to me, if He be human to all the world beside. He has done that for me which none but a God could do. He has subdued my stubborn will, melted a heart of adamant, opened gates of brass, and snapped bars of iron.

He hath turned for me my mourning into laughter, and my desolation into joy; He hath led my captivity captive, and made my heart rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory. Let others think as they will of Him, to me He must be the only begotten of the Father: blessed be His name.

And He is full of grace. Ah! had He not been I should never have been saved. He drew me when I struggled to escape from His grace; and when at last I came all trembling like a condemned culprit to His mercy-seat He said, ‘Thy sins which are many are all forgiven thee: be of good cheer.’

And He is full of truth. True have His promises been, not one has failed. I bear witness that never servant had such a master as I have; never brother such a kinsman as He has been to me; never spouse such a husband as Christ has been to my soul; never sinner a better Saviour; never mourner a better comforter than Christ hath been to my spirit. I want none beside Him.

In life He is my life, and in death He shall be the death of death; in poverty Christ is my riches; in sickness He makes my bed; in darkness He is my star, and in brightness He is my sun; He is the manna of the camp in the wilderness, and He shall be the new corn of the host when they come to Canaan. Jesus is to me all grace and no wrath, all truth and no falsehood: and of truth and grace He is full, infinitely full.

My soul, this day, bless with all thy might ‘the only Begotten.'”

Is someone doing that right away? Bless Jesus with all Thy might. Yes with all Thy might for in Him is our reposed, in Him is our salvation. Christ is our Beginning and the End. He is Lord and Saviour. What more dearly beloved? He turned our mourning into laughter, and our desolation into joy. Jesus did not stop there. He led our captive into captivity and made my heart to rejoice with joy unspeakable.

Beloved, is joy unspeakable full of glory that we are called to manifest this month having been delivered from kingdom of darkness Jesus made us to sit in the heavenly with Him and there he will reign till all His enemies will be made His foot stool and when finally He destroy His last enemy we will be with him in glory (1 Cor 15:25-27).

So be grid loins with strength and run with your freedom ticket. Don’t trade it; don’t exchange it either.

Remain blessed in the Lord.
