Have you taken note of the CO-INCIDENCE OF LIFE:
1. CHURCH has 6 letters so does MOSQUE.
2. BIBLE has 5 letters so does QURAN.
3. LIFE has 4 letters so does DEAD.
4. HATE has 4 letters, so does LOVE.
5. ENEMIES has 7 letters, so does FRIENDS.
6. LYING has 5 letters, so does TRUTH.
7. HURT has 4 letters, so does HEAL.
8. NEGATIVE has 8 letters, so does POSITIVE.
9. FAILURE has 7 letters, so does SUCCESS.
10. BELOW has 5 letters, so does ABOVE.
11. CRY has 3 letters so does JOY.
12. ANGER has 5 letters, so does HAPPY.
13. RIGHT has 5 letters, so does WRONG.
14. RICH has 4 letters, so does POOR.
15. FAIL has 4 letters, so does PASS.
16. KNOWLEDGE has 9 letters, so does IGNORANCE.
Are they all by Coincidence? We should choose wisely, this means LIFE is like a double-edged sword. 

If you think it is your alarm clock that woke you up this morning, try putting it beside a dead body and you will realise that it is the grace of God that woke you up.                                                           If you are grateful to God, forward this to all your friends to inform them that it is JUST BY THE GRACE OF GOD that we are alive.

THE NAKED TRUTH OF LIFE

There was a man with four wives. He loved his fourth wife the most and took great care of her and gave her the best.

He also loved his third wife and always wanted to show her off to his friends. However, he always had a fear that she might runaway with some other man.
He loved his second wife too. Whenever he faced some problems, he always turned to his second wife and she would always help him out.
He did not love his first wife though she loved him deeply, was very loyal to him and took great care of him. 
One day the man fell very ill and knew that he is going to die soon. He told himself, *_”I have four wives. I will take one of them along with me when I die to keep me company in my death.”_*
Thus, he asked the fourth wife to die along with him and keep him company. *_”No way!”_* she replied and walked away without another word.
He asked his third wife. She said *_”Life is so good over here. I’m going to remarry when you die”._*
He then asked his second wife. She said *_”I’m Sorry. I can’t help you this time around. At the most I can only accompany you till your grave.”_*
By now his heart sank and he turned cold. Then a voice called out: *_”I’ll go with you. I’ll follow you no matter where you go.”_*
The man looked up and there was his first wife. She was so skinny, almost like she suffered from malnutrition. Greatly grieved, the man said, *_”I should have taken much better care of you while I could have!”_*
Actually, we all have four wives in our lives.
a. *The fourth wife is our body.* No matter how much time and effort we lavish in making it look good, it’ll leave us when we die.
b. *The third wife is our possession, status and wealth.* When we die, they go to others.
c. *The second wife is our family and friends.* No matter how close they had been there for us when we’re alive, the furthest they can stay by us is up to the grave.
d. *The first wife is our soul,* neglected in our pursuit of material wealth and pleasure. It is actually the only thing that follows us wherever we go.
What will it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his own soul..

THE (SCIENTIFIC) DEATH OF JESUS

For the next 60 seconds, set aside whatever

You’re doing and take this opportunity! To know a little more about JESUS:
At the age of 33,

Jesus was condemned to death .
At the time

Crucifixion was the “worst” death. Only the worst

Criminals were condemned to be crucified. Yet it was

Even more dreadful for Jesus, unlike

Other criminals condemned to death by

Crucifixion Jesus was to be nailed to the

Cross by His hands and feet.
Each nail

Was 6 to 8 inches long.
The nails

Were driven into His wrist. Not

Into His palms as is commonly

Portrayed. There’s a tendon in the wrist that

Extends to the shoulder. The Roman guards knew

That when the nails were being hammered into the

Wrist that tendon would tear and

Break, forcing Jesus to use His back

Muscles to support himself so that He could

Breath.
Both of His feet

Were nailed together. Thus He was forced to

Support Himself on the single nail that

Impaled His feet to the cross. Jesus could

Not support himself with His legs because of the pain

So He was forced to alternate between arching His

Back then using his legs just to continue to

Breath. Imagine the struggle, the pain, the

Suffering, the courage.
Jesus endured this

Reality for over 3 hours.
Yes,

Over 3 hours! Can you imagine this kind of

Suffering? A few minutes before He died,

Jesus stopped bleeding. He was simply pouring water

From his wounds.
From common images

We see wounds to His hands and feet and even the spear wound

To His side… But do we realize His wounds

Were actually made in his body. A hammer

Driving large nails through the wrist, the feet overlapped

And an even large nail hammered through the arches, then a

Roman guard piercing His side with a spear. But

Before the nails and the spear Jesus was whipped and

Beaten. The whipping was so severe that it tore the

Flesh from His body. The beating so horrific that His

Face was torn and his beard ripped from His face. The

Crown of thorns cut deeply into His scalp. Most men

Would not have survived this torture.

He had no more blood

To bleed out, only water poured from His

Wounds.

The human adult body contains about 3.5 liters

(just less than a gallon) of blood.
Jesus poured all 3.5

Liters of his blood; He had three nails hammered into His

Members; a crown of thorns on His head and, beyond

That, a Roman soldier who stabbed a spear into His

Chest..
All these without

Mentioning the humiliation He suffered after carrying His own

Cross for almost 2 kilometers, while the crowd spat in his

Face and threw stones (the cross was almost 30 kg of weight,

Only for its higher part, where His hands were

Nailed).
Jesus had

To endure this experience, to open the

Gates of Heaven,

So that you can have free

Access to God.
So that your sins

Could be “washed” away. All of them, with no exception!

Don’t ignore this situation.
JESUS

CHRIST DIED FOR YOU!
He died for you! 

When it comes to God, sometimes you feel ashamed to forward

To others because you are worried of what they may think

About you.
God

Has plans for you, show all your friends what He experienced

To save you. Now think about this! May God bless your

Life!
60

Seconds with God…
For the next 60

Seconds, set aside what you’re doing and take

This opportunity!
If you are not

Ashamed to do this, please, follow Jesus’ instructions.

He said (Matthew 10:32 & 33): “Everyone therefore

Who acknowledges me before others, I also will acknowledge

before My Father in heaven; but whosoever denies Me

before others, I will deny before my Father in heaven.”

Word for the day #5

Mister ‘A’ has a scale of preference.
He works very hard at his youthful age.

He makes realistic plans for his future.

Once he becomes the right man, he looks for the right lady to marry.
But, mister ‘B’ has no scale of preference.
He lives life only for the present.

He goes around running after ladies..

He is not yet the right man, but he is chasing the right lady.
_Mister ‘A’ lives his life with wisdom, mister ‘B’ lives his life without wisdom._
*You can decide the category you belong!*
Happy Sunday everyone 

NEVER POSTPONE ANYTHING!

A sick person on hospital bed was visited by relatives. The patient was on an oxygen MACHINE and therefore couldn’t speak.
As they stood beside the bed, the patient took a pen and a piece of paper and wrote a note which he gave to one of the relatives who put it in his shirt pocket without reading and they continued with their conversation.
After a few minutes, the patient died. The relative later picked the note from his pocket to know what the dead man had written. And guess what! Sadly the note read.. “please move away from there, you have stepped on the oxygen pipe. I can’t breathe again , you are killing me”.
Lesson:
Do you postpone reading posts, ? Or do you ignore picking calls because you are already close to the caller. They might be helpful to you or to somebody… particularly at a most critical time.
Please pick your calls, read that note. NEVER POSTPONE ANYTHING. Don’t just read this message alone, kindly share with your friends.

*THE JOURNEY IS SO SHORT*

A young lady sat in  public transport: an old grumpy lady came and sat by her as she bumped into her with her numerous bags. The other neighbor got upset, asking the young lady why she did not protest and insist on her rights: she responded with a smile: “It is not necessary to be rude or argue over something so insignificant!’ I’ll alight at the next stop, our journey together is so short, replied the young lady”. 

Here’s a response which deserves to be written in golden letters in our daily behaviour and everywhere: 

*It is not necessary to argue over something so insignificant, our journey together is so short* 
This touched my heart and set me thinking. 
If everyone would realize that our passage down here has such a short duration and; to darken it with quarrels, futile arguments, unforgiveness, ungratefulness and bad attitudes would be a waste of time and energy.
Did someone break your heart? Be calm, the journey is so short!!
Did someone betray, bully, cheat or humiliate you? Be calm, forgive, the journey is so short!! 
Whatever penalty anyone serves us, let’s remember that the journey together is so short…
Let us therefore be filled with gratitude and sweetness. Sweetness is a virtue never likened to bad character nor cowardice, but better likened to greatness. 
Our journey together down here is really short and cannot be reversed…

No one knows the duration of his/her journey!!
Even Methuselah, the longest lived man got to his bus stop and alighted from bus
Two years ago, a well known Minister of God, Dr Myles Munroe and his wife Ruth Munroe, together with Pastor Richard Pinder, Pastors Lavard and Rudel Parks and their two children took off from Bahamas going for a crusade; none of them got to the crusade ground. They all got to their last bus stops and all alighted with a plane crash.
As we wake up to see each day light, millions of people: young, old, mid-age somehow get to their respective bus stops and must alight. We all pray to live long. And I pray for you reading this post; that you shall live long and fulfill God’s purpose for you on earth in Jesus name.

But REMEMBER, the journey is so short.
No one knows when they will get to their last bus stop where they will have to alight !! Meditate on this my brethren. The journey is so short.  50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 100, or 150 years all start with one day. You surely know how many years you have spent, but do you know how many more you have to spend? 1, 5, 10, 15, 20 or 99 year(s), months, weeks or days, hours, minutes or seconds. The journey is so short.
*Therefore, cherish and hold on to friends, family and the people around you! Be calm, be respectful, be kind, and be thankful. Love God; hold no offence.!! Be forgiving!!!

The journey is so short!
No matter what anyone has done to hurt you, always remember that: “it is so insignificant.” Be quick to forgive. Hold no grudge; the journey is so short.
Never forget that however long we pray to live for; the journey down here is so so short!!

Everyone will account.

🙏God bless us all.

SIMPLE WAYS TO SHOW COURTESY
