The story of Pastor TD Jakes

The story of Pastor TD Jakes --- A testimony of how God intervened and saved his life

Saturday, December 14, 2013


A little girl stood near a small church from which she had been turned away because it was
'too crowded.'

'I can't go to Sunday School,' she sobbed to the pastor as he walked by.
Seeing her shabby, unkempt appearance, the pastor guessed the reason and, taking her by
the hand, took her inside and found a place for her in the Sunday school class. The child
was so happy that they found room for her, and she went to bed that night thinking of the
children who have no place to worship Jesus.
Some two years later, this child lay dead in one of the poor tenement buildings Her parents
called for the kindhearted pastor who had befriended their daughter to handle the final

As her poor little body was being moved, a worn and crumpled red purse was found which
seemed to have been rummaged from some trash dump.

Inside was found 57 cents and a note, scribbled in childish handwriting, which read: 'This
is to help build the little church bigger so more children can go to Sunday School.'
For two years she had saved for this offering of love.

When the pastor tearfully read that note, he knew instantly what he would do. Carrying
this note and the cracked, red pocketbook to the pulpit, he told the story of her unselfish
love and devotion.

He challenged his deacons to get busy and raise enough money for the larger building.
But the story does not end there...
A newspaper learned of the story and published It. It was read by a wealthy realtor who
offered them a parcel of land worth many thousands.
When told that the church could not pay so much, he offered to sell it to the little church
for 57 cents.

Church members made large donations. Checks came from far and wide.
Within five years the little girl's gift had increased to $250,000.00--a huge sum for that time
(near the turn of the century). Her unselfish love had paid large dividends.
When you are in the city of Philadelphia , look up Temple Baptist Church, with a seating
capacity of 3,300. And be sure to visit Temple University, where thousands of students are

Have a look, too, at the Good Samaritan Hospital and at a Sunday School building which
houses hundreds of beautiful children, built so that no child in the area will ever need to be left
outside during Sunday school time.

In one of the rooms of this building may be seen the picture of the sweet face of the little
girl whose 57 cents, so sacrificially saved, made such remarkable history. Alongside of it is
a portrait of her kind pastor, Dr. Russell H. Conwell, author of the book, 'Acres of

This is a true story, which goes to show WHAT GOD CAN DO WITH 57 CENTS

Convert from Islam jailed for 10 years in Iran

A convert from Islam has been sentenced to ten years in jail for distributing 12,000 pocket-sized Gospels in the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Mohammad-Hadi Bordbar was convicted of membership in an "anti-security organization" and of having the intent to commit crimes against Iranian national security; he was sentenced to five years for each offence. His lawyer is appealing both Bordbar's conviction and sentence on the grounds that the two charges are essentially the same, thereby punishing his client twice for one and the same "crime".

However, national security charges are often pretexts used by Iranian authorities against Muslim converts to Christianity; Bordbar was convicted for his confession in court that he had left Islam and that he considered distributing the Gospel as his Christian duty.

Court documents referred to Bordbar's baptism and leadership of house church gatherings, his translation and dubbing of Christian films into Farsi and the discovery of thousands of Gospels and other Christian books and CDs in his home.

Bordbar was arrested in a raid on a house church in Tehran in 2012 when 15 plain-clothes security officers held 50 converts for hours as they were subjected to intense interrogation, according to BarnabasAid. Bordbar was initially arrested in 2009 for converting to Christianity; he was found guilty of apostasy, but was freed on bail.

Prayer to the Holy Spirit

I love the Apostles’ Creed. That’s right. I absolutely love it. Its power to combine scriptural depth with such clarity of expression is simply overwhelming. Not a bit of wonder it has gone down in Church history as a work of unparalleled grandeur.

Since Christmas time is just around the corner I want to take the Creed’s famous line concerning Jesus’ Incarnation- “Conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary”- and unpack its dense theological meaning. Today we’ll focus on the meaning of the first clause: “Conceived by the Holy Spirit.”

This phrase seeks to remain faithful to biblical texts such as Matthew 1:18, 20 and Luke 1:35 wherein the birth of Jesus of Nazareth is attributed exclusively to the hand of the Spirit of God. Joseph’s seed had nothing to do with it. It was a wholly divine affair. Even Mary was completely passive in the entire event. She did nothing. It was all of the Lord. Christmas, then, is about what God wrought. That’s why He gets the glory. God’s Spirit came upon Mary and mysteriously conceived the human nature that the eternal Word of God was pleased to assume in the virgin’s womb. Man was set aside as God unfurled His extravagant glory.

Another element worth noting is the unison in which the Son and the Spirit work together in the Incarnation. Human nature is only brought into reconciliation with the eternal Word by means of the Holy Spirit. This observation also has a special transcendence for any man (woman) birthed of God. We human beings are brought into communion with Christ through the Spirit of God. In some sense the Incarnation is an analogy of what happens during regeneration. The Spirit unites us to the Word. The apostle John connected these two ideas (the Incarnation of Christ and the new birth) in John 1:12-14. Both the Incarnation and salvation are Trinitarian events.

The fact that the Creed appeals to the conception by the Holy Spirit also means that it is by the Holy Ghost that God acts among men. In Jesus’ case the Spirit makes Him to be a revelation bearer whereas in our case we become revelation recipients. The grace of God manifests itself amongst us wherever the Holy Spirit is present. No one can know the truth but by the Spirit. It is He who opens our eyes, unplugs our ears and transforms our heart of stone into one of flesh. As Paul put it, “The Spirit searches all things, yea, the deep things of God. For what man knows the things of a man save the spirit of man which is in him? Even so, no man knows the things of God, but the Spirit of God” (1 Corinthians 2:10-11). It is only by the Spirit that we can have true knowledge of the Most High.

The final point I’d like to make is that the conception of the Holy Spirit shows us that what happened to Jesus goes way beyond the modern limits of biology, chemistry and physics. There can be no scientific explanation of what went on in Mary’s womb. The Incarnation is not meant to be mathematically analyzed but reverently adored. Such a mystery should enrapture us in worshipful awe. How can it be that the Word descends to earth? Or that God should walk among us? Or that the Son takes on flesh? When God moves, miracles occur. His hands aren’t bound by technical laws and systems. He is beyond the scientific enterprise. Science is the Spirit’s servant, never His master. Hidden away from the eyes of mankind in the womb of a virgin, the Holy Ghost does the undoable and makes possible the impossible. Shall anything be too difficult for God?

This Christmas be sure to remember that the Incarnation is of completely divine origin, that human nature is brought into peace with the Word by the Spirit, that it is in the Spirit that God acts among men and that the Breath of God is never tied down by scientific principles. The Spirit of Christmas preaches to us that nothing is impossible.

Saved over 1,000 Babies from Abortion

Meet the Man who has Helped Save over 1,000 Babies from Abortion in Just 3 Years Between cancer that required four surgeries, two brain aneurisms that required two more surgeries, and an accident when someone ran into his back with a vehicle, leading to yet more surgeries, it’s a marvel that Barros is standing, let alone maintaining the grueling schedule that he does.

 Nine hours a day, six days a week, Barros holds vigil outside one of the country’s most notorious late-term abortion mills – the Orlando Women’s Clinic – where he preaches the Gospel and reaches out to abortion-bound women.

But for him, it’s beyond worth it. After all, in the past three years of sidewalk counseling, Barros has helped over 1,000 women change their minds, and keep their babies. But, for all of the hours that he has spent in prayer and outreach outside the clinic, Barros insists that he deserves none of the credit. 

The story of every girl who comes to the clinic is different, "but the answer is the same," he says. "The answer is always found in Jesus Christ. That’s what we’re here for, to lead them, point them to Jesus Christ.”

 “I just show up here, and watch Him show off.”

About all of his physical challenges, Barros says, “As I look back God was just stripping me of all my pride, everything I held valuable everything I held dear. … All these things I thank God for because they’ve all shown me that He’s in control, every bit of it, that he’s sovereign.”  

Barros, a teddy-bear of a man whose slow, warm voice belies the intensity with which he pursues his life-saving mission, is the subject of a new short film produced by Phil Leclerc of the Leclerc Brothers film agency.  

Click "like" if you are PRO-LIFE!  

“As a filmmaker I’ve seen all kinds of impactful things, all over the world,” says Phil in the film. “But when a friend first shared with me about John and his work out in Orlando I found it almost hard to believe.”  

After nearly a year of deliberation, Barros gave Leclerc permission to spend a week following him as he tried to turn women away from the doors of the abortion facility and guide them into the arms of those who would provide them with the assistance they needed to welcome life.  

Some 400 abortions take place per month at Orlando Women’s Center, which is owned by James Scott Pendergraft IV, the same abortionist that was hit with a $36.7 million judgment for his involvement in a 2004 botched abortion that left its intended target alive, but severely disabled. Pendergraft, who has had his license suspended five times over the years for other shoddy practices, also owns several other facilities.  

Taking on this abortion juggernaut hasn’t been easy. Barros recalls that three years ago, when he decided to pursue what to many would have seemed an impossible scheme of full-time sidewalk counseling, he sat outside the Orlando facility and prayed, “God, if you really want me to sit here. If you really want me to call out to these people full time, please take care of my family."  

He adds, "And, through literally miraculous things at times, he has taken care of us.”  

Barros’ hope is that the short film about his work will inspire others to step forward and follow in his footsteps. He has started a website, whowillstand.net, where he encourages others to take up sidewalk counseling.  

“As you can see I do not look like Brad Pitt, more like Shrek, I'm handicapped in many ways but Jesus Loves to use Broken Vessels,” he writes on the Youtube page where the video appears. “He is calling for His People to Rise Up so please go and see what He Will do through you.”

Seek the Face of the Lord

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked way; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Jesus name be glorified

                    The name of our Lord Jesus be glorified.

What if I told you that life wasn’t meant to revolve around you? Or if I said that you were created for something infinitely greater than your own personal self-satisfaction?

Well guess what? Life doesn’t spin around you and you do exist for something mightier than you. That something is a someone. And that someone is God. He is the One around whom life orbits. This is the stunning message of the Bible.

I was recently overwhelmed by a powerful passage in Matt Chandler’s ‘Explicit Gospel’ (2012) wherein he argues convincingly that, “From beginning to end, the Scriptures reveal that the foremost desire of God’s heart is not our salvation but rather the glory of His own name. God’s glory is what drives the universe; it is why everything exists.” Chandler proceeds to list sixteen passages from Scripture in which the Lord reveals the reason He does everything, namely, for the glory of His own name.
  • God didn’t destroy Israel in the desert for the glory of His name (Ezekiel 20:5-9).
  • God saves men for the glory of His name (Psalm 106:8).
  • God hardened Pharaoh’s heart for the glory of His name (Exodus 14:4, 8).
  • God instituted the monarchy for the glory of His name (1 Samuel 12:19-23).
  • God inspired the building of the Temple for the glory of His name (1 Kings 8).
  • God strengthened Israel for the glory of His name (2 Samuel 7:23).
  • God didn’t destroy Israel for the glory of His name (Isaiah 48:9-11).
  • God decided to destroy the wicked Israelites for the glory of His name (Malachi 2:2).
  • God sent Jesus to earth for the glory of His name (John 7:18; 17:4).
  • God planned the crucifixion for the glory of His name (John 12:27-28).
  • God saves us for the glory of His name (Ephesians 1:3-6).
  • God calls Christians to live for the glory of His name (Matthew 5:16; 1 Corinthians 10:31; 1 Peter 4:11).
  • God will send Jesus to return for the glory of His name (2 Thessalonians 1:9-10).
  • God will consummate all things for the glory of His name (Revelation 21:23).
Do you realize something that all the passages above have got in common?

In every case God works for “the glory of His name”. That is the real purpose of your life and existence. Everything is ultimately subject to the grand purpose of glorifying God’s great name. That’s right- everything! Even salvation and condemnation! God will be glorified eternally independently of what lot befalls the sons of men.

It is by living in the light of this grand ideal that Christians are delivered from the selfish spirit of our age which is all about me, myself and I. True believers rejoice continually in the hope of the glory of God; not in their own self-glorification. God’s glory acts a sweet medicine that soothes every afflicted heart and restless soul. God’s glory comforts and God’s glory embraces because God’s glory is Jesus. He is someone much more important than you and me.

Matthew 8:2-3 And, behold, there came a leper and worshiped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.   And Jesus put forth His hand, and touched him, saying, I will;  be thou clean.   And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.

Prayer: Lord Jesus, you are my best doctor. I trust your words and believe that sickness is never my portion. You speak and your word heals the leper. I know you will speak into my life today. Make my life and my home to receive the true light of God in Jesus name. Amen

Say this little  prayer to the sick:  Lord, I pray for those that are sick today, come and heal them. Holy Spirit pour a healing words into the lives of the sicks... In Jesus name. Amen

"Today is a victory not only for pro-life students here at Johns Hopkins, but for pro-life students around the country. We hope that our story of rising above discriminatory opposition can inspire pro-life students around the country to courageously take a stand for life and speak truth to power at their own college campuses." -Andrew Guernsey
(Ann Arbor, MI)—The Thomas More Law Center (TMLC) a national public interest law firm based in Ann Arbor, Michigan announced this morning that the Student Government Association (SGA) Judiciary Committee of Johns Hopkins University (JHU) issued a unanimous decision late yesterday evening overturning a SGA ruling that denied recognition to Voice for Life (VFL) as an official student club of the University.
TMLC, whose mission includes defending the constitutional rights of pro-life groups and individuals, representing VFL, authored an April 4th letter to top Johns Hopkins University officials and the SGA Judiciary Committee laying out the legal basis requiring recognition of VFL. However, Andrew Guernsey, VFL's president and Chris Fernandez, VFL's treasurer, presented VFL's case to the SGA Judiciary Committee last night.
Responding to the decision, Andrew Guernsey commented: "We commend the SGA Judiciary for honoring Johns Hopkins' institutional commitment to free speech by overturning Voice for Life's rejection by the SGA Senate. Today is a victory not only for pro-life students here at Johns Hopkins, but for pro-life students around the country. We hope that our story of rising above discriminatory opposition can inspire pro-life students around the country to courageously take a stand for life and speak truth to power at their own college campuses."
Continued Guernsey, "On behalf of JHU Voice for Life, I wish to thank all our supporters in the Hopkins-Baltimore community and around the country. I especially want to express my gratitude to Students for Life, FIRE, and the Thomas More Law Center for their support in helping us win approval from the SGA. It is important that pro-life students like us who face unjust discrimination on their college campuses know that they are not alone, and that there are powerful resources to help them win the battle for free speech in order to win the war of defending the dignity of every human life."
VFL Johns Hopkins Monica Rex, Vice President of JHU VFL, added: "Now that the SGA Judiciary Committee has approved us, we are ready to begin the real work of saving lives! While the road was difficult, we have learned just how much this fight for life means to us, and how important it is that students at Johns Hopkins have the opportunity to hear our pro-life message. Johns Hopkins has always stood for the very best in higher education, and we look forward to bringing our pro-life message to future leaders in the medical industry here at Hopkins."

A seven-year-old boy was tortured and murdered for his Christian faith

A seven-year-old boy was tortured and murdered for his Christian faith in India.

Gospel for Asia reports child's body was pulled from a pond last week with signs of a brutal beating. Autopsy reports indicate the final cause of death was drowning.

His parents had last seen their son, Amnol, alive before he left for Sunday school Nov. 17.

K.P. Yohannan, founder and international director of Gospel for Asia, called the child's death "unthinkable" and the brutal torture "inhumane."

"The unprecedented torture and death of this innocent child saddens our hearts incredibly," Yohannan said. "Persecution of Christians is a weekly occurrence, but this intensity of brutality against a child is unthinkable. In this horrible tragedy, we find strength and hope in Jesus."

Yohannan said the persecution of Christians in his country has increased 400 percent in the past few years.

Celebrating the Love of Jesus

Our Lord is so great, so awesome. He came to free us from our sins and to teach us the true love of God.

Watch the wonderful video and be blessed today. Happy Christmas season, Happy celebration.

Mary Slessor stopped the killing of twins

Mary Slessor (1848-1915)
The early life of Mary Slessor in Scotland was horrific but fairly typical of the times. Her father was continually drunk and unable to hold down a job. The conditions that the family lived in were terrible and, at the age of eleven, she was working in awful conditions in a cotton mill. The one positive thing was that the mill provided schooling for her. She also helped at a local Sunday school and found herself drawn towards the stories of missionaries, especiallyDavid Livingstone.

By the time she was twenty-five, her father had died and so had two of her sisters and both her brothers. However Mary still harboured the desire to go to Africa as a missionary. In 1876 she got her wish and was assigned to a post as a teacher in Calabar. After three months of training she set sail. However she was not prepared for the way in which the natives were controlled by superstition and their fear of evil spirits. They were happy to hear the gospel and respond in the way that they knew that the missionary wanted, but they were not prepared to actually change anything in their lives (much like people today really!). Mary did not feel that her first three years accomplished much. She then caught malaria and went back to Scotland to recuperate.

On her return to Africa, Mary moved out of the missionary compound to live amongst the natives. This was partly to be more accepted by the people and partly to save money to keep her mother back in Scotland. She set up a classroom, looked after the sick and went around the area preaching the Gospel. She was also given many newly born orphans to look after. As time went on she spread her influence over a much wider area and confronted the natives, in particular the chiefs, in the way they treated people.

Mary had a deep desire to preach the Gospel inland. Very few missionaries had gone away from the coast deep into the jungle and in 1888, twelve years after she first arrived in Africa, Mary set up camp in Ekenge and continued much as she had already done. The one thing that she became known for was in the way that she stood up against many of the cruel local customs. Life was cheap and punishments were severe. People were often maimed or killed for trivial reasons.

Mary rescued hundreds of twin babies thrown out into the forest, prevented many wars, stopped the practice of trying to determine guilt by the poison ordeal, healed the sick, and unweariedly told the people about the great God of love whose Son came to earth to die on the cross that poor sinful human beings might have eternal life. The Master she loved and served so ardently crowned her labors by permitting her to establish a number of churches and to see hundreds of erstwhile savages partake of the sacred emblems of their Saviour's death.

For thirty-nine years Mary Slessor worked amongst the tribes of this part of Africa. She turned down an offer of marriage because she would not be allowed to stay amongst the people if she were married. She was one of a kind dedicated to preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ. In the process of doing this, she changed the customs and superstitions of the tribes. She died in 1915 at the age of sixty-seven, in a tiny mud hut amongst the people she reached with the Christian Gospel.

Those watching Emmanuel TV will be familiar with the powerful deliverances that take place during every service where the light of God exposes the darkness operating in the lives of people and evil spirits are forced to speak out before being cast out by Jesus Christ. Now, imagine this scenario unfolding in your own home with your loved one…
“Emmanuel! My name is Mrs Ikechukwu and I am living in Cameroon. As a result of the many negative events in my family and terrible spiritual attacks, things were not working properly in my household. There was no peace between me and my husband and we were both plagued by horrible nightmares. It came to a point where I thought the marriage was on the brink of ending. When things were really at their worst, some of my family members were blessed to attend The SCOAN Sunday Service on 28th July 2013 where they received the Anointing Water. When they came home to Cameroon, I was given the Anointing Water, alongside the booklet and the Anointing Sticker. I gratefully took them home. Late at night on that very same day, after my last daughter had fallen asleep, my husband and I prayed together, following the instructions in the Anointing Water booklet and ministered it. After ministering it, I was led by the Spirit to spray the Anointing Water around my home.
“On returning to my bedroom, the appearance of my husband had suddenly changed! It was as if another being had taken control of him. The spirits in him said, “We were planning to go and attack the Wise Men at SCOAN and this small girl wants to come and stand in our way!” With the Anointing Water in my hand, I asked the demons who they were and they replied that they were the spirit of a lion and dragon. It was just like what I had been seeing on Emmanuel TV! People of God, I was terrified but the Spirit of God gave me a supernatural strength and belief to keep on spraying the Anointing Water on my husband. He continued to growl and manifest until suddenly he fell onto his back and those wicked demons came out of him! I thank the Almighty God for delivering my family from these wicked spirits. Ever since that miraculous encounter, things have changed in the house! We are now living and sleeping in peace. Emmanuel!”
Mr & Mrs Ikechukwu, Cameroon

When the Sun is not shining

Dear God, even when the sun isn't shining, I know there is a sun. So when I can't feel your presence, and am going through a 'dark night of the soul,' help me to believe and trust in you, knowing that my life is in your hands regardless of how I feel...!♥ 


The church of Christ was birthed into the world with a flaming tongue. She had something to tell the whole world and, oh, how she said it! With passionate certainty and Holy Ghost boldness the primitive church broke down every man-made barrier to plant the conquering flag of Jesus all around the planet.

Ever since then Christianity has always been characterized by a zealous spirit of preaching that dares to speak in the name of the Lord. Each revival generation has produced a long list of zealous heavenly spokesmen who refused to keep quiet when the glory of the Lord was at stake. They rose up with fire in their belly and made known the ways of the Almighty. They were soldiers, heroes and warriors of the faith.

So the question I want to ask today is: where are all the young preachers? Where are the young men of this upcoming generation who renounce worldly commodity in order to be mouthpieces of the Most High? Where are they?

As I look around in most churches I find dozens of young men fighting to get into the church’s praise and worship team. Everyone wants to be on the stage playing some kind of instrument. And that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. God be thanked for such gifts! But where- I ask- are the prophetic voices? It seems to me that here in the West contemporary Christianity is gradually turning into a mass musical movement with little or no preaching at all to accompany it. The essence is dying out. Where is the substance?

I trust too much in the providence of God to believe that He would let the light of the Gospel be entirely extinguished from Europe. He will always have His witnesses. His election is sure. But it is a worrying sign of the times when the most celebrated believers are young Christian rock stars and celebrities. Whatever happened to the young penniless missionaries that shed their sweat, blood and tears for Christ’s cause to prosper in faraway lands? What about young souls such as David Brainerd and Robert Murray McCheyne who remained doggedly faithful to the message of the Gospel even when death came knocking at their door?

The Puritan giant William Perkins (1558-1602) lamented the scarcity of young men entering the ministry way back in the sixteenth century too. He cited three main reasons: 1) the contempt preachers have to face; 2) the difficulty of discharging the duties of a minister’s calling; and 3) the inadequacy of financial recompense given to those who enter the calling. Things haven’t changed that much more than four hundred years later!

Young preachers must be prepared to be spat upon, threatened and insulted endlessly- both by nonbelievers and believers alike. That is the lot of the witnesses to the truth. Also, they must seek God earnestly to hear His voice so that they know what to speak in public. Such seeking is intense, long, drawn-out and at times, dryly barren. But in the end, God comes.  And they must do all this without expecting great dividends (this side of earth). Many will have to combine their preaching ministry with a part-time/ full-time job, but when God ignites a fire in one’s heart it is impossible to resist.

I pray constantly that God may raise up young preachers in our nations and that a Bible-steeped generation may stand up to take the mantle of the primitive church upon their shoulders. May we all encourage our young preachers and pray for them day and night. They need it. Let’s embrace them, weep with them and sow into them so that the flaming tongue of Pentecost may once again flourish in the land.

True Love

This is a conversion between two people, it is all about true love.
Girl: This is really scary, slow down.
Guy: No, I am having too much fun.
Girl: Please, stop.
Guy: First hug me
Girl: ( Hugs Him)
Guy: Tell me you love me
Girl: Love you, can you slow down now?
Guy: Can you take my helmet off and put it on yourself? It is bugging me.
Girl? (Puts on helmet)

Next Day's headlines?

There was an accident involving a motorcycle accident.
There were two people riding the motorcycle at the time of impact.
The vehicle was speeding out of control
 and drove off road and into a building.
Only one of the two people died.

What really happened:
Half way through the ride the guy noticed that the brakes were gone,
but he did not want to scare the girl.
So he got her to hug him one last time,
and to know that she loved him.
He got her to wear the helmet so that if they did crash,
that she would survive,
although that meant that he had to die...
True love know s no boundaries, it is selfless and strong, when you truly love you willing to do for a loved one, love the brightest beautiful feeling gift from God to people, take care of love and do not ever hurt each other, protect each other and bless you God!

Living with a disability

Living with a disability has its tough times... but lots of lighter moments too. We interviewed people all over the country to hear their insights; these frank and funny conversations reveal the truth about disability and today we bring you the best moments from that series.


Well, it has all kicked off again. This weekend marks the beginning of December and with it the countdown to Christmas. For the last month or so, more and more festive-related messages have been appearing in the newspapers, on the street, on TV, in shopping centres and on Facebook. Chances are you’ve already posted some Christmassy updates yourself. And from this weekend until December 25th, it will be full steam ahead. Everybody wants to talk about the holidays.

Nevertheless, alongside this festive cheer, one can already witness the upsurge of the never-ending ‘Christmas Wars.’ The typical disputes over Christmas trees, manger scenes and crosses in public spaces are causing plenty of ink to flow (and plenty of tempers to flare). Should we say ‘Merry Christmas’ or ‘Happy Holidays’? Is Brussels’ new Christmas tree a vile abomination or a stunning symbol of aesthetic art and culture? Did Santa Monica’s federal judge do right in banning the church’s nativity display in the local park or did he mess up? Is Christmas nothing more than a Christianized pagan tradition? Is it not just a lame excuse for shame-faced commercialized materialism in the capitalist world? The debates seemingly never end.

My concern about all the aforementioned is how we as the church are acting in the midst of this social argy-bargy (sorry, that’s an old Scottish term: it simply means a verbal dispute or a lively argument). Are we acting within the sphere of Christendom or Christianity? There is a world of difference. Christendom seeks for an authoritative space within society. Its desire is public power and influence because its only longing is to survive. Just last week the Spanish evangelical Jaume Llenas wrote that the institutional church, “wants its name on the streets, its Christmas symbols in the public sphere, it wants subventions and benefits from the State, it wants crosses in public schools, it wants big buildings to symbolize its power.” This mentality, he argues, is wrong. I agree. It is resurrected Christendom.

Christianity is markedly different. Its focus is not institutional, but missional. Its identity does not reside in socio-political symbols of power and statistics, but in the Great Commission of the resurrected Christ. Such a church does not need worldly glory and honour to get a sense of satisfaction; but the approval of the Lord Jesus. Jesus didn’t seek to make a name for Himself in the social arena. He was committed to doing His Father’s will, and that certainly didn't entail Pharisee-like glory hunting from men. Jesus lived above that nonsense. He had His eyes set on that which was before Him. And that destiny involved the cross i.e. death- that’s right- raw, cold, spine-chilling and bloody death. Try convincing an institutional Christian to die! 

Back in the sixteenth century Luther made a sharp distinction between theologians of glory and theologians of the cross. And the same two spirits are at work today. The theologian of glory only sees God in the power structures of this world; whereas the theologian of the cross sees the glory of God in the bloody mess of the cross. Only the theologian of the cross has true saving faith. And therefore, only the theologian of the cross is enabled to carry out Christ’s mission on earth of preaching the Gospel to every creature in the correct Spirit.

The theologian of the cross is not bound by church budgets and financial capacities, but he is set free in the liberty with which Christ has set him free. And the only socio-political ‘symbols’ he has are passion in his heart, a fire in his belly, a consuming love for lost men and women and the constant infilling of the power of the Holy Ghost. After all, is that not what Jesus’ coming to this world was really all about?

Imprisoned Pastor in Iran

Idaho pastor, imprisoned in Iran, can meet with family, officials say. Praise The Lord for this!!!!!!!! But please keep praying for him and this whose situation.

BOISE, Idaho –  Human rights officials say an Idaho pastor who is being detained in a notorious prison in Iran has been allowed to visit with family.
Officials with the American Center for Law & Justice say Monday's visit marked the first time Saeed Abedini was able to see family since his transfer to Rajai Shahr prison more than two weeks ago.

The 33-year-old Christian pastor who had been living in Boise. But he's been in Iranian custody since September 2012 and is serving an eight-year sentence for undermining state security.
ACLJ Executive Director Jordan Sekulow says the family visit is a positive sign that international pressure on Iran is helping keep Abedini alive.
Human rights groups say Rajai Shahr prison is rife with violent criminals and high rates of inmate-on-inmate violence.

One of the greatest temptations for preachers is to speak high and haughty words in the pulpit that unlearned folk are unable to understand. Flowery words and lofty concepts may astonish the congregation’s mind but they don’t feed their needy souls.

There is something about the nature of man that desires to be praised. It is as if we instinctively seek the glory of our fellow men. And many times we feel we must speak in such a manner so as to attract attention to ourselves and to gain public approval as deep thinkers or top notch theologians. But this- my friends- is not the Gospel way.

Paul may have been an academic giant; but he veiled his learning every time he stood up to preach in God’s name. His knowledge was always there- of course it was- but he spoke in such a way so that all could understand him. He didn’t long to be lauded; he craved to be comprehended. Thus he translated his vast erudition into simple discourses that even simple slaves could mull over. His theology was practical with a capital ‘P’.

Luther brought the same style of preaching back into vogue during the Protestant Reformation. Rather than rhyming off mind-blowing messages in the Latin tongue to the forty something doctors and magistrates that attended his church (which he very well could have done had he so desired), Luther proclaimed the Word of God both plainly and powerfully in the most down-to-earth manner imaginable to the two thousand young people, children and servants that fed off his every word. Luther remarked, “An upright, godly and true preacher should direct his preaching to the poor, simple sort of people, like a mother that stills her child, dawdles and plays with it, presenting it with milk from her own breast.” It was such unpretentious preaching that ultimately turned Medieval Europe upside down.

A preacher, then, is to be moved for the welfare of God’s people. His goal must be the edification of the church; not the exaltation of his own ego.  The truly God-honouring messenger will feel God’s heart beat when he steps into the pulpit and, rather than aiming at getting applause from men, he will labour to convey Gospel truth in modest terms so that Scripture is driven home into hungry hearts and minds. Simple preaching is powerful preaching.

While I was in the university, I was involved in a number of businesses. One of them that was very easy for me to start and of course, put some money in my pocket, was the bulksms business. Even though the business did not make me a millionaire, it sure helped me while I was in school. For those of us that don’t know, bulksms is simply a web to phone sms, sent in large quantity.

How Did I make money from the Bulksms business?
1. I got an affordable and reliable bulksms service provider. This is important because there are so many fakes out there and you don’t want to disappoint your customers. I fell a victim and I don’t want you to. Maybe I should tell you this. There are two major providers of this service. The Indian providers and the European Providers. While the first providers are quite cheap but very unreliable (they don’t deliver), the European providers are quite reliable. So when you want to get yours, look for the European providers. If you ask me, I would recommend the one I know and use, coolzone.com.ng

2. I fixed my price to get a reasonable profit. What’s business without profit? However, it is important to fix a reasonable mark-up. For me, I bought at N2 and charged my clients N4.

3. Marketing. I targeted majorly Christian groups on campus. Nonetheless, you could also reach out to Churches, Secondary Schools, Supermarkets, your department etc. Please note, I did not tell the people I met that bulksms looks professional. No! I told them how the service would be of benefit them. I told them that the service, apart from the fact that it is cheap, would make their members feel loved and become more committed. Now, the benefits may differ depending on the group or organisation you have in mind. Just remember to talk about the benefits of the service you are rendering.

4. Prayer. I am a Christian and I did not leave God out of my business. He is my father and as a child, it is only proper for Him to be aware of what I am doing, as well as make His input. When my clients started testifying of the improved commitment of their members, I knew it wasn’t just because of the bulksms. God’s hand was involved. 
To manage the phone numbers you send to, you can make use of the “phone book” facility available on the website earlier recommended. It would interest you to note that I did not use a laptop, but my phone, to provide this service. Just to tell you how easy this service is. Moreover, you can even start with just 500 units and grow from there.

Get an affordable and reliable bulksms service provider (coolzone.com.ng recommended).
Calculate your cost and fix your price to get a reasonable profit.
Market. Talk more about the benefit of your service to your client.
Prayers. God’s hand in your business can make the difference. 

That was all I did to put some money in my pocket as a student, using the bulksms business. You can also do the same. I hope this write-up was useful to you. Now you know that making money as a student is quite easy. The decision to make money, whether now or later is up to you. All the best!
Have a nice day!
