What a mess

Two weeks ago, we woke up to the news that 13 years old, Alfie Patten, had become Britain’s youngest dad. Alfie’s daughter, Maise, was born to him by his 15 year old girlfriend, Chantelle Steadman. The news that such a young boy had fathered a baby prompted a fierce political debate over the high rate of teenage pregnancies in the UK and the sexualisation of children, following which it was said we were now a “Broken Britain”. As bad as this is, last week two other teenage boys, Richard Goodsell, 16, and Tyler Barker, 14, told the News of the World that they had slept with Chantelle at about the time she became pregnant and claimed she also had several other sexual partners and consequently there’s now a paternity debate as to who is really the baby’s father. Alfie has come out to say that he is willing to take a DNA test as soon as possible to establish whether he is Maisie’s father. What a mess, what a stinking mess this is! While I am tempted to agree with the voices that have called us a “Broken Britain”, I do know that where sin abounds, the grace of God abounds much more. My prayer is that the grace of God will continue to abound in our nation to overcome the sin in the land.

~ A word for your week ~ Pro 14:34

Beloved, our text this week says “Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people”. Surely, the case of Alfie in a paternity struggle with other teenagers is a reproach, shameful and shows how poor morally Britain has become. While we celebrate advancements in other spheres of life and society, we cannot surely be celebrating a generation of young people who are not fit and ready to take on the responsibility of raising children when they are themselves children still needing the guidance of their parents. What does anyone at 13 know about life? No nation attains righteousness this way. Where there is a clear absence of moral values that teaches abstinence, purity and respect for that which is sacred between a man and a woman as God made it, the consequence is what we are, without doubt, wrestling with today. Britain will do well to return to her good, godly and Christian roots where the teaching of the Holy Scriptures of the Bible was the framework for both public and private lives. Where generation after generation, the family unit was respected, husbands and fathers were seen as role models and mothers and wives were great home makers and home managers bringing out the best of their homes, there were good family values upheld by all and sundry. This is the Britain that was great and how we desperately need to see that Great Britain again. I believe that it will take us going back to God on our knees in repentance and submission to His wisdom. I have chosen to do so and hope you will too.

Hell is real

The world is still in shock following the bushfires in Australia last week. The media reports that more than 100 people were confirmed dead in the worst bushfires in Australia’s history. Many of the deceased died as entire towns in the south-eastern state of Victoria were wiped out by towering walls of flames, described as ‘hell on earth’. Many of the victims were burned to death in their cars as they tried to flee what were described as ‘fireballs the height of four-storey buildings’. The Australian Prime Minister, Kevin Rudd, said: ‘Hell and its fury have visited the good people of Victoria.’ I join the Australian people and indeed the rest of the world in mourning the loss of many innocent lives and pray that our God would bring healing and comfort to those affected by this disaster. However, as we regret the devastation in Australia, a  reality should dawn on everyone that hell is real. These bushfires have been described as ‘hell on earth’, imagine what hell after earth would be like? Thank God, He has given us the priviledge to make heaven! You do not want to miss heaven!

~ A word for your week ~ Matt 25:31-46

Beloved, our text this week tells of when the Son of Man comes in His glory with all His holy angels, sits on His throne of glory and begins to judge all nations. Reading the entire text, you will find that everyone will be either a sheep or a goat, and the criteria for this is listed in the text. The sheep will make the everlasting kingdom prepared for them from the foundation of the world. The goats, on the otherhand, according to verse 41 “Then He will also say to those on the left hand, ‘Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels…” My focus is in this verse, 41. It says clearly that hell was prepared for the devil and his angels but sadly and regrettably, human beings – the goats, are being sent to populate it. Why would anyone want to take the place of the devil and his angels? Or why would anyone want to be in the same place with the devil, a place clearly prepared for the devil and his angels? I believe hell was never meant for man, heaven was meant for man and hell for the devil and his cohorts. As you read this post, my question to you is would you be taking your seat in heaven or taking a seat in the place prepared for the devil and his angels? I made my choice several years ago, I have taken my seat in the eternal kingdom of Almighty God. I am not a fool, I will not take any seat in a place not prepared for me, let the devil and his angels occupy every seat in hell. My friend, I hope you too will choose a seat in heaven! Heaven is the place to go not hell. Like I said before, you do not want to miss heaven!

A very confused world

Thursday, 5th February 2009, the Metro paper on it’s front page reports about a 16 year old that has set a sex-change record. Born Tim, Kim Petras, an aspiring model and pop singer became the youngest person to complete a sex-change. The operation was carried on the 16-year-old German after doctors agreed she was ‘without doubt a girl in a boy’s body’. What confusion. What a confused world we live in today! How can a boy created by God be a girl in a boy’s body. In a confused world, every opinion goes. The so called experts will and are propounding all sorts of wicked and evil theories and doctrines of demons. Little wonder that they said Tim was a girl in a boy’s body. 1 Tim 4:1-3 says ” 1 Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, 2 speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron, 3 forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from foods which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth” Needless to say, we are in the last days and our comfort? He is coming back soon! Be ready, Jesus is coming back soon!

~ A word for your week~ Eccl 3:14

Beloved, our text this week says “I know that whatever God does, It shall be forever. Nothing can be added to it, And nothing taken from it. God does it, that men should fear before Him. God created Tim, in His image and likeness, and as our text says, it is forever or should have been forever, nothing to be added to it and nothing to be taken from it, perfect I must add, so that men should reverence Him for His great and unsearchable wisdom. But the doctors have said that Tim was a girl in a boy’s body and did a sex-change for him. Consequently, thay have added to and subtracted from God’s perfect creation and disrespected and de-valued His wisdom. For you child of God, you are the manifestation of His wisdom, He created you perfect in His image and likeness. No man shall add or take from you. You are beautifully and wonderfully created, a masterpiece! Marvellous are you, the work of His hand. Praise God!!!

As you begin a new week today, I prophesy that …

  • Your week shall be one of great peace and great calm!
  • You shall see yourself perfectly created in His image and likeness!

  • As His creation, you shall be satisfied with what He has given you for your life – gifts, talents, abilities and skills!
  • You shall not covet another life, you shall find joy and fulfillment in the life He has given you!
  • You are blessed, beautiful and highly favoured!

Have a great week!

FARM 2009

What is it and why are we doing it? Family And Relationship Month 2009 is a dedicated and focused month, usually every February, by our church, Kingdom Gospel Church, where we take time out, with the help of the Holy Spirit, to teach on the family and relationships. Relationships in this context can be anything from marriages to dealing with issues around being single, divorced or being a widow/widower. The family is very close to the heart of God. He created it! In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth and guess what? He also created the family!

~ A word for your week ~ Eph 3:14-15

As we were preparing for FARM 2009, God gave us a word we tittled “God is a family Man”. Our Scripture text this week is proof positive that God is indeed a family Man. The text says “For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named”. So, the Apostle Paul tells us that we are part of God’s family and God’s family is both in heaven and earth. God is that big to have a family that extends from the heaven to the earth! What an extended family! As a family Man, God is responsible for His own. He protects, provides and does all that we need for our daily living. Even the day we live in is provided for us by God. Psalm 118:24 says “This is the day the LORD has made; We will rejoice and be glad in it.” God is a great and gracious Father, a true family Man. As we have committed to a monthly podcast on our website, I have made this message the podcast for the month of February.
