The Man That Existed Before Adam and Eve!



All of humanity was made to think, and believe that Adam and Eve were the first human beings to live on planet Earth, that isn’t true anymore, there was another man who existed even before life itself, rather than considering the advent of Adam and Eve.


Dig in here to find out!


ADAM and Eve were not the first human beings to ever exist on Earth. There was a model of man that was there before Adam and Eve came to the limelight. It was that designs that was used to mold Adam into existence.

Let me commence this writeup thus, many Church folks are easily swayed from the truth because they have come to hold too fast to Church dogmas, doctrines of men. And dogmas, as we know cannot save anyone, only believe, faith and trust in the Word of God can keep a person safe.

It has become increasingly difficult for lots of ministers of the gospel to speak out the mind of God based on say certain revelations they probably have received from because the people have become so dogmatic, holding tenaciously to used to be so much that anything that comes new, is not likely to enjoy wide acceptance because we have set aside truth, and left out the workings of the Spirit-we don’t recognize the presence of the Holy Spirit, anymore – to many, that is a thing of the past. But God does not change, He is the same God, yesterday, today, and forever. And anything He does or says, stands.

The scriptures says, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it” John 1:1-5.

Biblical revelations most often are mistaken for heresies by those people who are held bound to dogmas, or Church doctrines. The scripture says, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children” – Hosea 4:6. When we close up our hearts to God’s Word, we don’t receive anything from Him, and when you belittle or doubt what God has put in inside of you, you also miss out on His blessings or miss out on His desire and ability to speak to you.

When God speaks, He opens His heart to us, to reveal the depths of His Word to us if we pay close attention to His leading and prompting.

“And God said: Let us make man in our image, after our likeness, and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and the birds of the air…” – Genesis 1:26.

Thus, everything that existed, the scripture says were created but when it came to man, the scripture made it clear, “Man was made” not created. Now, what is the difference between those two words?

In English expression, the use of the word to “make” means that the production process, and the vehicle, clothing or whatever that product maybe, the design already existed. Whereas, the verb to “Create” usually suggests newness, freshness or innovation, to bring something that is not already there into existence.

Generally speaking, the word create means to produce or bring something into existence. Therefore, taking cue from our definition, the man was made from a model that already exists. In other words, the man was already there in existence even before the creation process began to emerge.

Otherwise, the scripture does not conflict with itself. Everything else was created but man was already living in the existential realm waiting for the full time of manifestation, and now was the time for God to manifest the man. God made the man from the model of design He already had in His store place.

Nothing was in existence until God spoke every thing into being, “God calleth those things which be not as though they were” – Romans 4:17 But man was made, crafted into the existing mold that was there and placed him is his position in the garden as a leader (tender of the garden).

What or who was that model, format, mold or design which was there in the Earth before it was rolled out into being?

Let’s go back to our main text, “And God said, Let us make man in our image…” So, this goes so far as to solve the puzzle. If man was made in the image and likeness of God. It invariably means GOD is MAN. And man is god – this understanding will put you on the pedestal to begin to work towards investing in the Word to have more and better knowledge of who you are. Adam played down on the power and role that God vested on him. This, he lost it all.

Adam and Eve was made strong, healthy, fully grown, and mature. They didn’t have to pass through the usual stages of growth. The normal lifecycle of the human being starts as a zygote in the womb and is birthed as a baby. Then, grows into a child. And becomes an adult. After which he grows into a senior (old age). But you will note that Adam and Eve didn’t go through those stages – they skipped three stages of growth. They were made already adults, then just grew into old age and died.

Adam and Eve didn’t know what infancy was like, they didn’t know what means to be a baby, and so they also didn’t experience childhood. In other words, they never learned to crawl, they never learned to walk, and they never learned to speak. They did not have any experience of what it means to grow because they didn’t go through those stages of life – they didn’t feel peer group pressure, and they didn’t have reasons to learn to work or develop their senses of reasoning or thinking. They received life automatically. They were made so perfectly that they didn’t have to learn or ask for anything because everything was already there at their beck and call.

Adam and Eve didn’t need anything, they had everything. They were a symbol of perfection in God’s creation. While every human being has to pass through all the stages of growth, Adam and Eve relished in the abundance of everything, they lived and operated in a system called in today’s world automation. They didn’t have to work for anything, everything came as at when they needed it. And they grew old.

God left out those other three stages of growth and development for Adam to figure out what and how to adapt to this life that he has just been given on a platter. God does not, has never had the intention to turn a man into a robot or something He will push or command around. But God put everything down to the man in clear terms. He did not hide the consequences if however, Adam becomes rebellious.

God took Adam round the Garden, and showed him everything, introduced him to all the plants and livestock in the Garden, which Adam had named the animals all by himself because wanted Adam to understand that he is a stakeholder, an authority in this business of creation.

For the plants, God communicated to Adam all their purposes, and uses and gave Adam and Eve permission to eat of any of them trees except for one, the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

You may of any tree here in the garden, “But you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will certainly die” – Genesis 2:17. That’s the account of what transpired. When they are of the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, they died spiritually as they lost fellowship with God.

Suddenly, the automated life they were enjoying ceased, everything was been made manual, they had to work so hard to be able to get something to eat, they began to have birth to their children in pain and sorrow. Cain grew up, untamed and became a wild ass, very competitive, and jealous. Cain became envious of his younger brother, Abel. One day, he lured the younger brother out into the field, smote him killed, and had him buried him away in the wilderness.

We don’t have any news of whether Adam called his his son Cain to reprimand him for committing such evil against his brother, Abel. All those lapses on Adam’s part combined to negate and mar Adam’s leadership role in the garden. If only Adam had gotten it right the first time, what a wonderful world we would be living in today.

The fall of man brought with it too many maladies: Sicknesses, diseases, hunger, poverty. Every negativity came with the fall. Man lost the divine fellowship he had with God. God also lost that connection He had with Adam and Eve, thus, He couldn’t function well anymore.

In other to reconnect with man, God sent the person He consulted with on the day He was to make the man, Adam. Remember God’s speech, “And God said, let us make man in our image, after our likeness, and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the air…” – Genesis 1:26.

I want to be more emphatic on the use of the phrase, “And God said, let us make man in our image, after our likeness.” it is very clear who God was talking to, and the phrase, “…make man in our image…” goes to say that God referred to Himself as man just like He called us gods, “Ye are gods” – Psalm 82:6. God is a higher dimension of man, while man is the lower dimension of God – every tree gives birth to its kind, a man will give birth to a fellow human being. We are made in the image of God, and so we are gods (God’s property). And if we’re made in the image of God, and we are men, that insinuates that God, our Father is a Man (of a higher dimension).

Therefore, God is that Man who existed before the advent of Adam and Eve.

So, man had every quality to make him a god before the fall but man never learned to maximize his potentials. He forgot what he was made off immediately after he had finished with the work of naming the animals. God consulted with you, brought every animal before you and asked, what do we name this animal? And Adam would say, “Let’s call that a pig, a dog, a duck etc” and that has remained their names ever since. How Adam forgot to warm his wife against eating of that fruit is what is difficult to point at.

Adam became dysfunctional in carrying out his role as a husband, as a father, and as a mentor. He failed to communicate unity, harmony, kindness, brotherly love, and compassion in the hearts and minds of his children. His entire household was in disarray, and dysfunctional. “Being family means being a part of something very wonderful. It means you will love and be loved for the rest of your life.” This was not the case in Adam’s home.

When God called Cain to ask the whereabouts of his brother, Abel. Cain,“Where is your brother?” Cain sort of responded to this question with aggression and a sigh, “Am I my brother’s keeper?” What did Cain suppose he was? A stranger in his father’s household? The phrase, “My brother’s keeper” has such a great weight. It is generally understood to mean being responsible for the welfare of a brother or other sibling or, by extension, for other human beings in general. And those were the very words of Cain. He birthed those words from within him but he had not the understanding of the impact of those words. Family is a tie that should not be broken in any way.

All these was the account of the first man, Adam. But God brought back Jesus Christ to the Earth to bridge that gap, the family ties that had been severed by the fall.

I want to take you back to the first chapter of the book of John where we started our reading. In verses 9-12 of that chapter, it says, “That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.” John 1:9-12.

Thus, God as Man existed in the universe before the coming of Adam and Eve.

Life’s Impermanence!



Rather than investing in a life that is transient, working to acquire the mundane things, the quest to fill the belly, and satisfy the here and now, to invest in a future that has no eternal value would be a crass and worthless venture.


May we be wise enough to think and invest in a future that leads to better and greater rewards, life eternal.


And this future deals with the lives of men, cultivating and inculcating values that make for peace, joy, and the salvation of souls.


MEN are seemingly hard of hearing that they don’t come to the understanding that this life is transient, very fleeting in its opulence. All the beautiful ornaments: the wonderful places, the beautiful things, and all the stunning wonders life offers us will gradually fade away into oblivion, and our knowledge, skills, and understanding will come to nothing someday soon.

Some of us pride ourselves in the wealth we have gathered, nations pride themselves in their technological, scientific, and or military might. All of that will melt away from existence at the end of time.

This news constantly will sound like a myth to anyone who is already basking in the pleasures of the moments, those massively in love with life and all it can offer, and will try to convince you that the end is far-fetched. They will tell you that the end of your life is where (position) you are at, your community or companionship, who is who you know, and the things or what you have acquired to compete with those in that league or community of friends or circle.

We have a longing to belong with the best of people: family, friends, or people of importance. In other words, we long for the praise and recognition of others, we want to feel relevant, needed, and important before these people. Often, some of us feel that the best way we can be relevant is to gather things. If you own a beautiful house or an expensive car, or if you are a money bag, you gain the respect of men. So, men do everything to make or gather so much capital to be recognized by men.

Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche spoke these beautiful words. He said, “At present, the outer universe — earth, stones, mountains, rocks, and cliff — seems to the perception of our senses to be permanent and stable, like the house built of reinforced concrete, which we think will last for generations. There is nothing solid to it at all, it is nothing but a city of dreams.”

We occupy a material universe. Every day,  our senses report back to us a world that can be seen, heard, touched, smelled, and tasted. It appears solid, fixed, steady, and reliable. The consistency and relative predictability of our materially realistic universe lead our minds to create a worldview built upon the notion of non-change and permanence.

Introducing the Law of Impermanence:
Thus, we come to discover a fundamental principle of nature: The Law of Impermanence. Known as the first dharma seal (primary characteristic or principle) in Buddhist philosophy, the Law of Impermanence says, “Everything in material or relative existence is impermanent.” That is, everything has a beginning, a middle, and, most definitively, an ending. Flowers, trees, automobiles, buildings, businesses, institutions, political ideologies, relationships, human bodies, mountains, rivers, oceans, planets, suns, and even galaxies are all impermanent and will eventually cease to exist.

Life is perpetually in flux and change is an inevitable constant – as the Greek philosopher Heraclitus reminds us, “No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it’s not the same river and he’s not the same man.” In my interpretation, that statement means that in this life, everyone lives only once; we don’t live twice. Impermanence lies at the heart of our material reality. Yet, despite its ubiquity and undeniability, it is the concept we struggle to integrate into our worldview more than any other. Why? Because impermanence brings us face to face with our mortality, and it scares us.

Victim And Victor:
Not too many people are conscious of the transient nature of life. And so we go about it flippantly, reckless about what we do or say to and about other people. We become so careless that we play victor and victim with the people we are or seem stronger than.

A victor feels like they can use a skill or develop an attitude or behavior that will improve their position. Whilst a victim feels like things happen to them on purpose, that they have little or even no control over, and that it is always everyone else’s fault. Well, to an extent, someone is responsible; someone or some situation pushed us into that position.

How do we become victims?

We become victims when we attract toxic people into our lives. And toxic people will damage our self-esteem, they take away our confidence from you, and depletes our enthusiasm.

What are some of the characteristics of toxic people?

  1. The most dominant characteristic they have in common is that they leave the people they interact with, whether that be family members, friends, work colleagues, sometimes even strangers, romantic partners or acquaintances constantly doubting themselves. They are energy vampires who suck all positivity out of you, transform it into negative energy, and return it to you.
  2. They often tend to be the loudest people in the environment you are in.
  3. Are often passive-aggressive in everything they do.
  4. Can’t take no for an answer, and they cannot admit they are wrong.
  5. Inflated ego and easily getting offended. Individuals with an inflated ego and who easily get offended may not be able to empathize with others and are often unable to sustain relationships.
  6. They manipulate people to make them behave the way they want and to get whatever they want from others. Most toxic people do this by playing the victim, so they get the approval and support of others. Also, they take advantage of the ‘Halo-Effect’ and the ‘Horn-effect’ either to manipulate people negatively or either to escape a crime they committed and blame it on someone else (more about this. All of us initially associate good looks with good personality and good genes but this is such a flawed and naive instinct and belief.
  7. Because they are so insecure and have low self-worth, they feel they need to put others down, so they can feel better about themselves and be seen as better by others. Many toxic people will go an extremely long way to reach this. An example of this would be if someone constantly belittles you and tries everything in their power to make you look bad.
  8. They don’t care about values.
  9. They are unwilling to take responsibility for their actions.
  10. They are too egoistic and never consider other people’s feelings.
  11. Somehow they manage to find something negative in everything (similar to point 1).
  12. They cause nothing but pain and chaos.
  13. Toxic people are often not aware of their toxicity and the pain they cause.
  14. Some are aware but unwilling to change because they think they are always right and never wrong.
  15. Low self-esteem.
  16. Constantly blaming others for their misery and never looking at themselves.
  17. Playing the victim all the damn time.
  18. Vanish in a time of need on purpose and come back to pity in a way of laughing at you for your seemingly miserable situation.
  19. They are too judgmental. Toxic people often criticize and judge every person they come across by always pointing out their flaws, and they give the impression that nobody is good enough for them because they have a negative attitude toward new people and an inflated sense of self-worth without having something to back this up. They see themselves as far superior to others and everything revolves around what they like and don’t like.
  20. They provoke violence.

This may happen in the form of jesting or making fun of you, ridiculing you, and undermining you to make themselves look bigger. Although, it is very easy to give in and respond to that with physical violence, the healthiest and the most mature response is to just don’t let it get to you. Keep in mind that people who feel a need to provoke and undermine you do so because they feel inferior to you. Only respond with physical violence when they physically threaten or hurt you.

Bootlicking:
Bootlicking can be simply defined as behavior on the part of an individual to make someone else (usually the boss) feel good, to serve personal vested interests. It could be anything from praising your boss to giving him gifts to laughing at his jokes, even when it is not funny. As much as we loathe it, it is a fact of organizational life. There will always be people who due to lack of talent, skills, and credibility, take the easy option of winning the boss’s favor by practicing boot licking to achieve personal interests.

Now, I know you would be asking how these topics correlate. The object of this write-up is to conscientize you into the realization that life isn’t what you take as though you have it trapped in your pocket. We should live ready each day as if is our last. Every day, God gives us opportunities to amend our ways, and to be conscious that it might be our last but not too many people are conscious of this fact.

Bootlickers work for the moment, they live and work only to keep or satisfy the cravings of their hearts, their immediate longings. And such persons wouldn’t mind spoiling the plans of others in order to get theirs in the way.

Spiritual Deception!



The quest to appear, purpose-driven,  a success, and advancing has forced or can force men into all kinds of foolery.


Many have lied in the name of God, many are still willing to lie to get what they want especially in spiritual houses.


A lying tongue is despicable to God!



WE live in desperate times, a time of unprecedented widespread deceptions. An assault of telephone scammers, money launders, fraudsters, and all kinds of deceptions in the name of development.

While these schemes can cost people financially, spiritual deception can result in a person’s eternal ruin. Satan has been employing his deceptive lies since the Garden. Warning the Corinthians about not receiving a false Jesus or a different gospel, the apostle Paul wrote (2 Cor. 11:3), “But I am afraid that, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, your minds will be led astray from the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ.”

Satan has used the false teaching of the cults to lure many away from the true gospel that the apostles preached. Invariably, these groups prey on unsuspecting, untaught people in evangelical churches. They use the Bible and claim to believe in Jesus as Savior and Lord. But they deny the trinity, including Jesus’ deity. They deny the gospel of Christ’s substitutionary atonement and salvation by grace through faith alone. Tragically, they lead their followers into eternal damnation.


Spiritual things are sacred and so should be kept sacred, should be treated with caution and utmost reverence because God is involved. when God puts His hands on an issue, He will not make a joke or play pranks with or on us.

God is superly committed to any course He involves Himself with. And He follows it to the letter to fulfilling them because God is not a man that He should lie. His promises and gifts are without repentance. So, commit to God and He will be committed to you. This loving God demands absolute dedication and commitment from us, His creation as He is also committed to our goodness and well-being.

God, as we know Him, is true, genuine, and committed to everything and everyone He created and promised anything. The words of God are Ye and Amen.

Ye and Amen:
This statement conveys that Jesus Christ is the “yes” and “amen” of all God’s promises, meaning Jesus is the guarantee and confirmation of God’s promises. Christians respond with an amen to the assurance of God’s promises which signifies our affirmation of and trust in God’s faithfulness.

Speaking, God says that your yes should be yes and your no be a no. Don’t ever speak anything you don’t mean to do, and don’t ever make a promise you know that you cannot keep. The word amen means, “Let it be so it so shall it be.”

God is sincere in His speeches and dealings, He is without guise.
You will ever remain a baby, under-developed if your Christianity has not surpassed, “Please, help me consult God, to see the future for me!”

What does your “Yes” means God?

Saying, “Yes,” to God means saying, “yes,” to being who He wants us to be. When we say, “Yes,” to God, we say, “Yes,” to all that He is. We say, “Yes,” to becoming all that we can be for Him. We say, “Yes,” to being all that He created us to be – to live our purpose with Him beside us.

And our “Amen” seals the deal or agreement we have just entered in with God or man. Amen is used in Jewish, Christian, and Muslim practices as a concluding word, or as a response to a prayer. Common English translations of the word amen include “verily,” “truly,” “it is true,” and “let it be so.” It is also used colloquially, to express strong agreement.

God of Truth:

However, with God, a lie is a lie – big or small; and whoever speaks it. A lie is anything devoid of the truth or whatever distorts the truth. Even when a lie is told to a man, it is nevertheless a sin against God.

Telling lies is also a posture. The bible talks of people who “walk in lies.” God says: “I have seen a horrible thing in the prophets of Jerusalem: they commit adultery and walk in lies; they also strengthen the hands of evildoers, so that no one turns back from his wickedness. All of them are like Sodom to me, and her inhabitants like Gomorrah.”  – Jeremiah 23:14.

Some people tell lies occasionally.   But those who walk in lies tell lies habitually and compulsively. They live under false pretenses. The converse is also true, according to scripture.

John says: “I rejoiced greatly when brethren came and testified of the truth that is in you, just as you walk in the truth. I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.”3 John 1:3-4.   Walking in the truth means living according to the commandments of Jesus.

You have equal access to God as that man you seek an audience with to make a consultation with God on your behalf, you don’t need any spiritual medium to speak with and tell you God’s mind concerning your life or situation. You only need to find God yourself to ever enjoy good time and communication with Him all by yourself. There is nothing God would tell anyone about you that you cannot receive from Him firsthand.

The Scripture says in Lamentation 3:37, “Who is he that saith, and it cometh to pass when the Lord commandeth it not?” That man who is conducting God for you also needs God for his issues. What makes one special in God’s sight and not another? The boldness to enter into His holy of holes to inquire of Him. So, you are not less a man of God than another – you share in the same freedom and tight of Sonship as everyone else who draws near unto Him.

“For I want you to know how great a struggle I have for you and for those at Laodicea and for all who have not seen me face to face, that their hearts may be encouraged, being knit together in love, to reach all the riches of full assurance of understanding and the knowledge of God’s mystery, which is Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. I say this in order that no one may delude you with plausible arguments. For though I am absent in body, yet I am with you in spirit, rejoicing to see your good order and the firmness of your faith in Christ. Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving. See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ. For in him the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily, and you have been filled in him, who is the head of all rule and authority.” – Colossians 2:1-10.

Understand people by their actions and you will never be fooled by their words. Let the fire be rekindled and let your spirit be renewed, and let the anointing break the yoke of sin, lies, and death so that the truth of God will find expression in the lives of men.

God bless!

Stuck!



Getting stuck can be such an excruciating situation, held up in a place where you don’t seem to find your footing in life.


However, there is always a way out of every rut you are stuck in, you only need to discover the spark that fires up zeal and enthusiasm for your burning desires.


Be assured that after a while, when you have conquered the hold-ups, then, you begin to blossom in all your endeavors.


SOMETIMES, I feel kind of stranded, so confused, and do not know what else to do with my life. Once upon a time, it used to be a great pleasure, and it still is pleasurable for me to just dip myself into writing something that takes away my pains, sorrows, and frustrations, and keeps me focused, and undistracted by the negative effects of life whenever I get to a crossroad.

To be stuck is to lack the ability to inspire positive change, the lack of processing power to bring your situation under your control. People feel stuck not only due to symptoms impacting their ability to implement change but also due to a lack of processing past traumas or wounds, not having awareness of why things are the way they are, struggles with motivation, over-thinking, low confidence and self-worth, fear, outgrowing your current situation.

Are you stuck? What are you doing about it? What can you do to take yourself out of that situation?

Here is what to do when you feel stuck:
1. Set goals that matter.
2. Approaching life differently.
3. Control your mindset.
4. Ask yourself these questions every day.
5. Get out of your comfort zone.
6. Surround yourself with a positive audience.
7. Let go of what’s no good.
8. Reassess, improve, and repeat the good things you do.

Life has given me more than enough reasons to cry, say, more than a hundred (100). But every time the tears are almost pouring down, somehow, I wriggle back out of such depressing situation into sanity.

You will definitely know you are stuck when you become incapacitated. It could be caused by a situation, a lack of something, or someone who is helping to make things round.

Often, the things that incapacitate us are not the things that are far from us but those things that are very close to us; it could be friends, family, or everything that wades a man from moving to the next level of his life is a factor.

Someone once said and I quote, that if you begin to pray for your enemies to fall and die, you will suddenly realize your family members are dying one after another. To incapacitate someone is to hinder or cause someone not to function normally, to deprive of capacity, like a bad cold that incapacitates you. The verb incapacitate is related to the word capacity. Capacity comes from the Latin word capacity, meaning “that can contain,” or can potential to hold, or how much something – brain, bucket, or otherwise – can hold.

Incapacitation may occur as a result of the effects of Hypoxia (insufficient oxygen, which is the experience some people suffered during the Coronavirus period) associated with an absence of normal pressurization system function at altitudes above 10,000 ft. Smoke or Fumes associated with a Fire in the Air or with contamination of the air conditioning system.

Soundness of Mind:
Maintaining a sound mind is key to the right living. An essential principle of health posited by the modern Iranian middle class since its rise at the dawn of the 20th century was a strong link between a healthy body and a sound mind. This thesis was built on a reinterpretation of the maxim, “aql-i salīm dar jism-i sālim ast” meaning, a sound mind lives in a healthy body, which drew on modern Western biomedical sciences, especially neurophysiology.

Rather than mirroring a simple history of transfer of knowledge (from a creative West to a passive East), this maxim tells a fascinating, multifaceted story of acculturation. Indeed, the general thesis at the base of the present text holds that biomedical sciences were adapted in interaction with problems seen to be created by, and conditions believed to be necessary for, Iran’s modernization (tajaddud).

Shifting the focus of modern Iranian medical history to the intricate interplay between global and internal contexts and forces, this thesis maintains that these interactive patterns were directed at physical, mental, and moral health and disease. They thereby formed a strategy to “medicalize” modernization, addressing its central problem: how to accelerate it without causing social order to collapse, and thus to propel Iran into the ranks of the “civilized nations.” This novel strategy rose in the context of the modern middle class’s distress about the chaos surrounding the Constitutional Revolution (1905–11) and the failure of its political focus to advance progress – that is, the belief that change is conditioned on science-driven sociocultural reforms.

It was embedded in international colonial structures of scientific knowledge and political power yet, at the same time, was decisively shaped by internal problems. The content of biomedical sciences and medicine was adopted from Western countries. But their contextual objective – the management of modernization – though drawing on late – 19th Century Western “medical model(s) of cultural crisis,” was decisively geared to meet Iran’s specific circumstances.

Considering everything that transpired during the pandemic, if you ask me, did we have to undergo what we went through? Was there any justification for the world to be locked up the way it was locked up?

No!

The whole plan with the COVID-19 shenanigans was only to cripple the economies of the world in order to introduce the One World Government. The Globalists had already set in motion strategies to reduce the population of the world, and put leashes on people who appear to be a threat to them achieving what the wanted to achieve.

COVID-19 was nothing but a well-calculated plan to unravel the plan for the New World Order.

Thank God for good people, not religious men, humanitarians who saw this sinister motive and introduced the Crypto-currency we hear about today. This is a story for another day.

Scripture says, “For those who know their God will stand strong and do exploits.” – Daniel 11:32.

Taboo!



Evil and good do not belong together, they are repulsive. This is like saying, “Good and bad do not belong together. Light and darkness cannot share” – 2 Corinthians 6:14.


The very moment the two begins to coexist, danger is looming.


Sadly, the voice you’ve been listening to and following might only lead you to a dark world because the world wants evil to win over good.


AT the mention of the word, your mind will first go to mysticism, armed robbery, abductions, killings, and all manner of dastardly activities. And in truth, there was a point that nobody wants to be associated with anyone who practices such. Prostitution was a taboo, embezzlement was a taboo, and anything that had an iota of negativism was abhorrent, not until now.

Every society today is run by one Mafia group or the other, everywhere is a capon territory. And if nobody pays attention to this, so much will go down the drain, and the world eventually collapses.

I read a statement someplace where it is said that “the world where evil is not as powerful as good is a world out of balance.” This is the new normal. The world is changing drastically, it’s no longer what it used to be, and everything has taken a wrong turn. Most of those things which were considered taboos some years back have now been made normal.

What is the one thing that evil can never have that good does have? And I know that your answer might be Manners? A castle? Amazing hair? A horse? What ?

Right now, I know for sure that your mind is running wild; which is okay. But you could say that the one thing that good had that evil can never have is “True love,” which is traditionally manifested in a kiss. True love can not thrive in evil because the evil will choke it, it can only pretend to love because it needs it but when the chips are down, and evil is self-sufficient, it will choke the good to death.

Many years ago, it was inappropriate or even impossible to hear girls or women talk so much about sex, copulation, and or intercourse. Today, women make arrangements and give lectures to men on how to have sex and keep their women sexually satisfied – these were discussions that were rife with men, not women as is the case these days.

What is taboo?

You will never hear many years ago that cousins relate to one another in a love and sex relationship because it was considered incest.

A taboo is a social group’s ban, prohibition, or avoidance of something (usually an utterance or behavior) based on the group’s sense that it is excessively repulsive, offensive, sacred, or allowed only for certain persons. Such prohibitions are present in virtually all societies.

How? Where? When did we lose it?

We will claim ignorance of the evil that has taken root in our lives and society today when in truth, we took a stand against the very moment we chose to align with that idea that had the semblance of truth but evil in disguise because we will always be able to identify good from evil. The issue is that every man is first selfish before the thought of communal – what works best for me, firstly, then anyone else. Why would I give you another when I have not gotten one? So, it is me first, then, someone else.

But let it be known to you that, God is working out the path, “casting down imaginations, and every high thing that is exalted against the knowledge of God, and bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.” 2 Corinthians 10:5.

The more we continue to embrace such evil whether, in our lives or our nations, we continue to truncate the beauty of life we were made to enjoy. Until we learn to stand on the truth of God’s word and truth, we will die a villainous death.

Sadly, whenever you stand on the truth you become an enemy of men who has decided to tag with the negatives, you need single-mindedness to resist the pressure of their deceptions. It starts with a ittle deception. People prefer what has been called the near normal – men are desirous to be women and so they go to be turned from their gender to the other, likewise, women, men having  sex with fellow men as women women marry and have sex with fellow women. This lived not the original plan of God. And what is wrong or evil before God can not be made right by man.

“Strength and success belongs to God; both received and receiver must answer to Him.” – Job 12:16 MSG.

Why would anyone break taboos?

What motivates people to break taboos, and what do you think of them?

There’s a lot of reasons for people going against the conventional — they want change; they want something different to ignite their life; maybe the taboos are grossly outdated and need to be challenged.

Personally, I once used to think that I was a fan of tattoos and body modifications, including scarification, which is a hugely taboo and controversial topic in the tattooing/body mod community. In that regard, it comes from African tribes as rites of passage or war scars, so bringing scarification out of taboo status in First World countries brings forth the history of scarification, and that it shouldn’t be condemned as inhumane.

There are cultures that consider menstruation and, essentially, the changes that come with becoming a women are condemned, gross, to be kept behind closed doors and never talked about. Some girls are being denied basic health knowledge because of an outdated taboo saying periods are impure.

I think some taboos, like the two I mention, should be challenged: one is deeply rooted in cultures much older than us and is a sign of maturity and should be respected that way, and is not a form of torture; and the other is considered ungentlemanly when it is the definition of manhood.

That first is a bit of a niche example, but I hope my answer enlightens some.

Sometimes people break taboos just to be rebellious, and to thumb their noses at the people who probably have stopped them from doing what doing certain things they have desired to do it just so they can prove a point..

One thinks of the adolescent sneakily smoking a joint, using bad language, or stealing out of the house past curfew time.

When older adults break taboos, it is typically a deliberate act – intended at breaking taboos that appear to be senseless to them, and plainly wrong.

There is an emptiness or loneliness that comes with not following trends, trying to make alone, and making yourself a difference.

Maybe you have not realized it, but it is gradually becoming unpopular to speak the truth and or do what is right. If y you do, you stand the chance of making or keeping friends.

Find Jesus, and you will find security for your life; nothing else satisfies.

Broken!



Whatever breaks you, will remake you. It will bring you into a place of truth and reality.


Life is fleeting, a mere facade or so to say. Going by the illusions we build in the life we live can only bring us to a place of shame and disappointment.


Walk in the reality of the time and seasons to enjoy true living on the planet, Earth.


AT the peak of our game, everything seems perfect. When everything is working fine and running smoothly, it looks like, we have a near perfect lifestyle – not a dot, a jot and tittle ever seems to go wrong.

And then, somehow, it is very possible that one could walk in this blinded illusions for as long time permits and not see or notice we need some adjustments – make room or allow same excuses we have made for ourselves, those mistakes we have made and learned from for other people who have also made their own mistakes at some points in life to find a guide for their own lives.

Don’t ever use yourself, your life or experiences to judge others, you cannot make yourself the yardstick or standard for other people because people are not the same, we do not have the same understanding and comprehension levels; some things could appear easy by certain people and very difficult for others. If you’re the type who can do or handle things with ease, not everyone has that capability, excuse their ineptitude. So, as much as we can, we must work to make life easy, understanding – also make excuses for such persons so that we don’t have them think they are not good enough for anything as the other persons who can handle those issues with panache.

Understanding levels differ, do whatever you know how to do in your capabilities, and let another perform the same in his or their capabilities too.

We are or have been wired differently, that’s just how God created us – different colors, different languages, knowledge, and abilities.

The right and most correct, and right thing to do is to learn to identify our capabilities and to help encourage anyone with a lower understanding of potential, and capabilities.

But what is this life about?

It is definitely about knowing who we are, understanding our strengths to building those strong faculties we have discovered about ourselves to bless the world around us – a doctor uses his knowledge to administer drugs and healing to the sick, an engineer use his abilities to provide mechanical, electrical or technical advancement.

What are you about?

We may not all be doctors, professors, pastors, engineers and all. But there is something you can do, only you can do it to be a blessing to the people around you.

You must and or should find that thing that broke or breaks you so that you can work to remake yourself into that special person God has planned for you to be because the place of brokenness is the place of rebuilding, a place where we are stripped of all pride, all power, knowledge and skills, and abilities, and made bare, naked, devoid of everything that represents the demon – pride, stealing away our humility – the virtue and values God has designed to keep us with Him, for Him and to make a great blessing of us – a people full of love and life, a people made in His image and likeness, little gods to keep and preserve the world for Him, for good.

Keep Away The Noise!

People clamor for good things, special things that show their friends how good, successful and accomplishing they have evolved in whatever they do.

Despite how beautiful, sophisticated, attractive, expensive, or wonderful a plan or idea is, if it does not answer the need of the hour, it is a mere distraction. And the best place to keep distractions is in Neverland.

Clutters must be kept far away from dreams and visions, as they can stop or retard progress and advancement. Not all that looks good is desirable, not all that seems nice or great is always needed. One needs to avoid everything and everyone that does not add to your life but seeks to rather distract you from focusing on your goals and the pursuit of purpose.

There are too many things that seem good, but if they’re not relevant to what you are doing at any point in time, they are but a distraction. So, distractions could be a good friend you don’t want to put away at the very moment when you are busy or focused to accomplish a project.

May wonderful ideas warm into our minds that slip away because we don’t learn to sieve out the wanted from the unwanted.

Therefore, we can only avoid clusters when we learn to prioritize our lives, give preference to things that matter to you at every point in time than fill up your mind with unimportant matters.

For, I learned to vent my anger and frustrations in my writing. Whenever I feel stifled or choked by issues and maybe people not treating me right, or seeming insurmountable problems, I look for something to bury my mind, and self in as I try to script them down into writing. This is how I avoid clutters!

Self-Betrayal, A Deadening of The Conscience!



Life for non-Muslims across the globe has been threatened. As it were, if you are a Muslim in Nigeria, Arabic, Hausa, or of the Fulani enclaves, your life seemed to have been already aligned into a powers tussle ancestry.


Seemingly, everyone who has that blood has an automatic ticket or power to decide what happened to other people in the world.


IN the name of modernization or civilization, Christians in many nations around the world had lost themselves, their faith, or their belief to Islam.

Today, Nigeria is beginning to tow the same path those nations followed. The path of, “It doesn’t matter, we are a growing and civilized nation.” and then, a little slip, a little slacking of our hands and guards to allow the “Muslim-Muslim Ticket” thrive.I bet you all, that this will be one mistake Christianity or anyone who is not of the Muslim faith will make that will never recover from for the rest of our lives. Because the Muslims will shove it into our throats and choke every one of us. It has happened before, it will happen again if we let it happen.

Now, many people especially those of us in the Christian faith who don’t and cannot see far will begin to think and make insinuations that I am preaching hate gospel, encouraging religious discrimination. But what you don’t see or know is that this was the same line of thought of the Christians of old, a lack of foresight most nations in the olden days had that has put countries like Lebanon, Turkey, or Antioch in the hideous state they are in, right now.

The all-powerful Persian kingdom we knew back in Bible days as the Babylonian kingdom, a world power was not a Muslim nation, but worshipers of Zoroastrianism. Today, Islam has swept through that powerful kingdom, killed and forcefully converted everyone to Islam.

So, this is not a case of civilized Christianity. as this civilized Christianity is the bane of the dominance Islam has enjoyed these many years against our good judgment. This, in essence, is a case of holding fast to what we believe. It is a case of not letting down our guards, it is working out our salvation with fear and trembling – this is what God expects of us.



In Christianity, no one has or should ever nurture a desire or an agenda to want to turn or force people to Christianity. But it isn’t the same belief as Islam. It believes in total domination, forceful conversion, killing, and annihilation. You must be Muslim or will not live to enjoy or serve the God you desire and want to serve.

What The Muslim-muslim Ticket Holds For Nigeria:
Well, if you would ask my opinion, I will say that, “I see untold suffering for all Nigerians who are non-Muslims.” How can I tell that? I hold unto the antecedents of past years, the experiences of all Christians in the northern parts of Nigeria, as well as other nations around the world who have suffered the pangs of Islamic Jihadism.

In the pages of Punch Newspaper, the candidacy of the APC government claims, “We are not coming into government to represent the Muslim or Christian faith. The Sultan of Sokoto and the CAN President are competent to represent their faiths. We are the Nigerian dream team that will catapult the country to a higher pedestal and we will redefine the concept of modern governance. The Christians have nothing to fear and there is no cause for alarm because we are one people with a common destiny.”

That was vintage Kashim Shettima, the Vice-Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, in one of his numerous efforts to push back the insinuation of a sinister motive behind the Muslim-Muslim arrangement of the party. Based on his determination to deflect attention from the Muslim-Muslim ticket controversy, Shettima has been using every platform available to him to tell everyone who cares to listen that we should all focus on the issues… Issues of governance and how to move the country forward.

But beyond the irritation that engulfs his face each time the issue of religion is brought up and his insistence that real issues, not inanities, should be discussed, Shettima also needs to come up with the issues he wants Nigerians to focus on and most importantly he needs to lead the conversation.



Is Shettima himself or his principal, Bola Tinubu, discussing the issues? Beyond saying he and his Tinubu would tackle insecurity and fix the economy using their experience and the pedigree they have garnered over the years, what specifics has Shettima been discussing? What timelines?

What bold ideas are Tinubu and Shettima bringing to the table to tackle insecurity, fix the economy, power etc? What specific promises are they making that Nigerians can hold them accountable for?

We, Christians, Nigerians have been made too many of such promises before. But did they ever come to fruition? When It comes to fulfilling their promises to the people, do they own up? This is where the problem lies – cheap talk. And of course, deception is part of the gimmicks used to take power. Do these politicians commit to their promises? Never!

It is opined that Professor Wole Soyinka in a statement said, “The problem of Nigeria is corruption and only a man free from corruption can save Nigeria. Nobody is a saint but if you look at the three leading presidential candidates, there is one you can trust with our money.  The other two is known for embezzling public fund and that is why they are very rich without any identifiable source of wealth.  If you fail to vote for the man that is free from corruption, do not complain about corruption in Nigeria again. 

A piece of advice!!!

Aw Christians, we cannot continue to sell ourselves, our consciences and expect wonderful results. This reminds me of the story of Esau and Jacob. When a man is more conscious of his belly, what to eat, and how he looks, it becomes easy to let go of great things or throw away his beliefs to want to enjoy the beautiful things life offers. But then, God would have been disappointed in our acts because they don’t represent Him.

God requires that we will stand for what we believe, in Him, with Him no matter how threatening the situation is or would be.

I laugh when I hear the Yoruba brethren talk about them not having problems with the Muslim-Muslim arrangement because they think that amongst them, they have both Muslims marrying their Christian women. But the question I will ask is, how many of the Christian men are allowed to marry Muslim women? Very rare or note. Why is this? I have an answer to that – that issue of Muslims being a more superior people than the Christians and for the same of preserving the religion.

Well, you don’t see a problem with the Muslim-Muslim ticket currently. But I bet you, the issue won’t be a now one, give them time and you will see if there will be any Christian left in Nigeria.

When this Muslim-Muslim ticket comes to fruition, only Muslims will take decisions for the entire country, of Nigeria. There won’t be anyone who would raise an eyebrow as to why this or that should or should not happen because only Muslims will determine the fate of Nigeria. This will be the time when even the Yoruba Muslims will understand that they don’t have the power or authority to decide or stop anything against the Yoruba people whether they are Yoruba Muslims or Christians.

In my opinion, it is apt to resist evil, to nib it at the butt before it raises its ugly head to cause bigger problems.

Decibel!



This write up, in essence, has nothing to do with the measurement of sound in its true sense. Rather, it teaches us on how to watch out, to decipher from what is undesirable in our lives.


Don’t you pay give attention to everything that demands for attention.


HOW unimaginable that people would be interested in unpleasantness to take the time to want to study, its depth and quality.

This is crazy, right?

Noise is not something anyone would desire because it irritates the ears. However, in some funny ways, the human ear has devised a means of differentiating between pleasant noise and one that is unpleasant noise. The ear is irritable to earshot, the noise that has deafening capabilities. Therefore, noise or sound can be regulated such as to be pleasing to the ears when it is chimed.

This is what STEM is capable of creating – give unwanted sounds or noise regulatory levels that make them pleasing, useful, and enjoyable to humanity. STEM has accomplished a million projects from their state of unpleasantness to turning them into useful tools helpful to the human race.

STEM (Science Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) is a community of experts: scientists, technologists, engineers, and mathematicians who take interest in subjects that are normal people. By normal people, I mean those people who would show little or no interest at all to want to dare into uncharted waters (territories), those who wouldn’t want to dare into thinking outside the box. STEM is such kind of group that would take time out to want to go on such a seemingly meaningless journey because they love to carve out discoveries, creating new paths in fresh environments.

STEM has taken the time to study to know and teach and keep records of the quality of sound or what the normal or layman would call noise. Having gone on this arduous journey, they have come up to declare to the world that noise or sound is measured by a standard called (DECIBEL).

Decibel is the unit of measurement of sound.

What is the quality of the sound we produce?

Some many years ago, I used to hear people making statements like, “An empty vessel makes or produces the loudest noise.” Is the sound we produce one of emptiness or that our sound has depth and quality?

Allow me to give these terms proper definitions to differentiate them from something unpleasant to something that is pleasantly desirable: Sound or Noise is the various sounds, usually unwanted or unpleasant, a sound or signal generated by random fluctuations, (technology), an unwanted part of a signal, (genetics) the measured of the levels of variation in gene expression among cells, regardless of source, within a supposedly identical population. Rumour or complaint. Music, in general; is a concert; also, a company of musicians; a band. A genre of rock music that uses static and other non-musical sounds, also influenced by art rock.

Music can be noise at the time when quietude or soundlessness is what the occasion or moment calls for. However, qualitative a sound is, it is noise if it is not required by the person or persons listening to it. Science has assigned noise a unit of measurement to control and give us the knowledge to regulate sounds dependent on the moods and seasons of the listeners.

The “NOTICE ME” Attitude:
The sound coming from you, does it have depth and quality or do you sound for want to announce your presence? Some of us court attention, we always want to be acknowledged by those in our circle of friends or influence.

I got into talking with someone, some time ago, and he said to me that he can’t be in attendance in a meeting and he won’t speak, except if he is not present at the meeting.

And I made bold to inquire further, “Are you implying that you must speak in a meeting even if you don’t have anything to say? He said, “yes!” Then I demanded further, “What if what you want to say has been said by someone else, would you still speak?” He repeated with an affirmative, “yes!” And I said to him, “To what end?” He said, “I will not say it in the exact words that person has said it. That’s the difference!” That will be over flogging the matter, I said. And he affirmed again, “yes!”

What is the case I’m making here, some people love to be noticed so wherever there is a gathering of people, they must create a scene to be noticed, to show their presence. Don’t let the sound, groaning, and noise coming from the inside of you not be borne out of your emptiness. But if the quality of your depth in knowledge and productivity is.

Anything that cannot be regulated gets out of hand and becomes noisy and unwanted, even food intake, which is important for the growth and development of the human body. If it is not regulated it will constitute a problem for the body that food is supposed to grow or develop.

So, a decibel is a common measure of sound intensity that is one-tenth of a bel on the logarithmic intensity scale. It is defined as dB = 10 * log10(P1/P2), where P1 and P2 are the relative powers of the sound.

In essence, what I am trying to do in this article has nothing to do with sound, whether music or just noise.  I am only trying to get us to learn how to put moderation or modesty in all that we do so we can trim down and regulate on our excesses or overbearing lifestyles so that we do not burden others.

Some of us would go as far as not allowing others the opportunity to express themselves for the sake of domination and taming or clipping their wings from overtly displaying themselves, and stealing the show from them.

It is very imperative that we measure or are careful of what comes out of our mouths, the words we utter. Words are powerful, they have the potency to build or destroy.

Words that can hurt or destroy a human being will not only be termed as noise but a weapon that is lethal and destructive. Therefore, must be evaded by every means possible, by all standards.

I remember a verse in Scripture that says, “words are like seasonings.” like cursing around kids. Many parents or people don’t get to realize that as children listen to adults speak or do things, they take that as the standard of living, and they begin to imbibe that lifestyle to other generations after them.

Why would anyone consider, “cursing around kids” as noise or dangerous? Because it will leave a negative and lasting impact on their minds. Cursing in the context of verbal abuse can also certainly lead to negative effects. For example, a 2007 study in The Journal of Early Adolescence correlated kids exposed to more abusive homophobic slurs with increased stress, anxiety, depression, and a decreased sense of belonging.

In this article, I plan to use these terms to define between negatives and positives with the scientific terms noise and pleasant sounds just so we could distinguish and tell where, when, and how to use words across age groups. If possible, dissuade people from the use of negative and destructive words so we can build healthy relationships and a peaceful society.

Many people are threatened when a better person shows up with talents that outfit theirs. It is important to be good at your game but don’t over flog it because when you do, it will become noise (unpleasant).

Distortion:
By way of definition, to distort something is to give a false or misleading account of or about that thing. Otherwise, defined as a misrepresentation of the truth, reality or validity.

Noise or sound is a form of distortion or contortion. Noise or sound can be anything, a speech or music that is not needed at the time and space it is spoken or sung. If a good speech that not meet its requirements, it is determined as sound. Likewise, if a piece of music does not satisfy the ears of its listener, it is determined as noise. So, a rhythmic sound can be considered as what it is termed if it does not meet the satisfaction of the determinant.

We measure the worth of a sound by the frequency of it need, by its demand by those who give ears to it. It is possible to have scarcity in the abundance of a commodity. It is a question of its demand. We have it in abundance but there are also too many people in demand of such a commodity. But it can also be irritating (noise) even when it is scarcely because it is not in demand.

Noise and Distortion:
This sound of this, is gross and spells doom. Each word is already unpleasant. The combination of the two is absolutely way out of league. It is like from bad to worse.

Mathematics teaches us that two (2) negatives makes a positive, can this principle be applicable in this case? Yes, if it is properly managed or regulated. Moderation would sort out the issue of absolute negativity in every case.

The concepts of distortion and noise in signal processing overlap to a limited extent, but they are distinct phenomena. Distortion in a signal is the alteration or change of the shape or some other characteristic of the waveform. In contrast, noise is an external random signal added to the original signal. It’s harder to remove the effects of noise than to remove the effects of distortion. Noise also has a more stochastic nature compared to distortion.

Moderation modulates monotony or changes the tone of anything to a sound that might have been considered unpleasant to give it freshness and desirability.

When you make or produce a sound, make sense. If you don’t make sense, that will be considered as noise. The is a positivity in every negativity, and vice verse; learn to manage both ends and you are on your way to greater manifestations.

Measure the tone of your presentation in order to stay in or within the ideal standards to maintain it keep your relevance and be within regulation and time.

We lose relevance by sticking to used to be and lose out on the tenets of contemporary trends.

Therefore, we must sieve out all noise or unwanted sounds from around us to embrace the measure of decibels relevant with the space and times we are in.

Measure the degree of noise you make, determine if your noise is in demand or not, regulate the frequency and mode of presentation if you are trying to trade that sound for something else.

I pray that you find understanding and meaning to this article.

Be blessed!

Jealousy Is Blind And Deaf!



Jealousy is the wrong handle to manage a love relationship, even though, there is a positive side to jealousy. But the negative effects outweighs the positive, however little they might be.


You feel a twinge of jealousy when you are in love with someone and realizing that you’re not a priority to that person, can be heartbreaking.


Jealousy generally has a negative connotation but emotions can be very helpful, informative, and educational. It all depends on what you do with them and how you move forward.


AT one time or another, we have all felt the twinge of that green-eyed monster – jealousy. This is one of the deadliest evils eating up the morals in our daily lifestyles. So that many people get so engrossed, continually and consistently consumed in their quest that they become blind, and not careful to look at the cause of their jealousy. When you are jealous, you hardly can see that most or all of the things you have been told, assumed you saw, or imagined are mere fallacies built up and given life by your imagination.

In your good interest, you need to put away every iota of jealousy warning its way into your mind. Jealousy may be driven by low self-esteem or a poor self-image. If you don’t feel attractive and confident, it can be hard to truly believe that your partner loves and values you. Other times, jealousy can be caused by unrealistic expectations about the relationship.

Jealousy is stirred up by unimportant matters. For instance, someone tells you that another man said, he is better than you at something. Jealousy does not allow us to try to verify if the person truly said what we are told that he or she said. We go to work to prove we are better or sabotage the person’s efforts to prove our point

Oftentimes, when we are jealous, we begin to develop a beef between us and the person and suddenly create unnecessary gaps that negatively affect and influences our relationships.

This problem is a long-term issue that started many years ago. It is noteworthy, and a hard thing to imagine that the eleven (11) sons of Jacob were dead to hearing not to have noted that their brother, Joseph called them STARS. All they could pay attention to, to want to hear was that point he mentioned BOW. Jealousy is blinding and deafening! And so, Joseph’s brothers began to hunt and plan on how to take Joseph out of the picture since he was even the love of their father, they planned to remove him from their midst – let’s smite him dead, let’s throw him into that cistern and just let him die a slow death in there, let’s just sell him away into slavery a foreign land where he won’t be able to find his freedom back home to our father or into our midst to always disturb us with his nonsense dreams.

The Scripture is rife with stories of people who blinded by jealousy, did all manner of ugly things against their family members. You will recall Cain and Abel, you will recall the children of David – Amnon and Tamar and his step-sister. Consequently, that actions stirred up enmity between Amnon, and his brother Absalom, you know the rest of the story.

What to do when you begin to feel a little jealous about someone for some reasons only you can tell.

Here is a look at some ways to cope with jealousy and examine what’s at the root of your feelings:

  1. Trace it back to its source.
  2. Voice out your concerns.
  3. Talk to a trusted friend.
  4. Put a different spin on jealousy.
  5. Consider the full picture.
  6. Practice gratitude for what you have.
  7. Practice in-the-moment coping techniques.

Sometimes feeling a twinge of jealousy is a sign there’s something you need to work on in a relationship or some aspect of that relationship isn’t going how you want it to be going. But, unchecked, consuming jealousy can be toxic and destroy relationships. That’s why we need to know how to recognize it and respond productively, Stern and others say.

Jealousy is hard-wired in all of us.

Baland Jalal, Neuroscientist At Cambridge University School Of Clinical Medicine.

Jealousy isn’t necessarily a problem, but it might be a sign of a problem within one of your relationships.

From an evolutionary perspective, the purpose of jealousy has always been to motivate us into action to help secure our survival and the survival of our offspring, Baland Jalal, a neuroscientist at Cambridge University School of Clinical Medicine, says. (Jalal co-authored a paper reviewing the current understanding of the evolutionary basis of jealousy and envy.

Our friends and our mates help us survive, reproduce, and do what we want to do in our day-to-day lives. Feeling jealous is a signal that someone else might be putting a relationship you have and rely on at risk — and you may need to do something about it to either save that relationship or find what you’re getting out of that relationship somewhere else.

“Jealousy is hard-wired in all of us,” Jalal says.

It can be useful if you recognize the feeling and respond in a way that helps you address a problem or something you are struggling with in a relationship, Stern says.

Let’s say your partner has been spending more time at the office with colleagues. You’re picking up that there’s something wrong between you two. Maybe there’s a reason for you to be jealous, or maybe you’re feeling the way you do because those long hours your partner spends at the office cut into the time you and your partner used to spend doing a hobby together (and losing that time is taking a toll on you and your partner’s closeness).

Jealousy is the wrong handle to manage a love relationship, even though, there is a positive effect of jealousy. But the negative effects outweigh the positive.

You feel a twinge of jealousy when you are in love with someone, but realize that you’re not a priority to that person.

Jealousy generally has a negative connotation but emotions can be very helpful, informative, and educational. It all depends on what you do with them and how you move forward.

If the jealousy evokes negative emotions, you want to explore it, understand it, and then let it go. If it evokes positive emotions, it’s likely linked to a healthy view of ourselves, determination, and appreciation of our positive characteristics,” Kamkar says.

A study conducted at the Tilberg Institute in the Netherlands found that jealousy could be very beneficial for people who were looking to change aspects of their lives. Researchers conducted four different tests and determined that feelings of jealousy motivated participants to study more and inspired better performance when people felt self-improvement was attainable. This is what experts call benign jealousy, versus malicious jealousy, which can cause feelings of resentment.

This thing (monster) is in all of us. If we allow it to take control, it can culminate in devastating consequences for you or the person who gives it too much attention. To let jealousy have the best of you in a relationship would be like using acid as water to wash your face. When you do, every little action from the other person will appear as a competition to you.

Therefore, be careful how you handle the pangs of jealousy that springs up in us from time to time. This affects every human being, no matter how successful they might be.

Scripture says in Ephesians 4:26-27, “Do not, in your anger sin…” What do you think this verse is talking about? What would make a person angry? The sons of Jacob were so overtaken by their anger and jealousy against their brother Joseph that they did not hear him call them “stars.” They only could hear the part where he said they would “bow” to him.

What will make a man do ugly things?

What will make a man do ugly things?What will make a man do ugly things?

For the most part, it will be jealousy. So, we need to learn how to manage jealousy, if not, it will destroy us and, everyone around us.

The Nativity!

The story of Christmas inspires hope, love and compassion for human life and existence. It expresses awe, in the good intentions of God towards restoring sanity, back to the denigration that sin brought into the good, sweet relationship/fellowship God and man had enjoyed.

A cursory look at life will give you a euphoric but temporal sense of Independence, as though we can exist as separate entities. But in earnest, God does not, will never need a man to be God. God is God all by Himself. Man will always need God to ever live and enjoy a good and joyful life.

However, for man to operate, and have any relevance or impact in the world, we need God. Also, for God to ever impart the world for the good man, He needs the help of man to make a conducive atmosphere for the pleasure of man. In this world, God is incapacitated without the help of man. Also, for man to be Kingdom useful, he is incapacitated without the help of God. Therefore, God requires the help of man to help establish, and give authority to man in the world God) had created for man for a home.

AN Angel of the Lord suddenly appeared to the shepherd men who were tending their sheep on a cold Winters night, that was so deep, sitting in the Meadows conversing, the night was calm and friendly as they were just chatting away their feelings as the cold winter night as they saw the bright-shiny star approaches and stopped at the place where they were sited.

Behold, is born in the city of David, child. His name shall be called Emmanuel, meaning God is with us.

One of the best seasons in life is that time when families all gather together in joyful celebration of the birth and coming of Christ, our Savior. Christmas awakens the awareness in us that the light of life has come to Earth. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was at the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not anything made that was made. In him was life, and life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” (John 1:1-5).

Christ was there before the beginning of time. Humans met the existence of time because Christ created the times, the seasons, and the existential. Before the beginning of time, everything else existed in the realm of the spirit.

The System of God/ Men.
Kingdoms exist by sets of rules that are formed to keep a check against violators and recalcitrants who might want to obey the order and decide for their ways, which are always counter-productive. Every kingdom harnesses itself and the life of its inhabitants. To operate smoothly and comfortably in the system of the world, you must speak the language of the world and present the currencies, or legal tender that is acceptable for transactions.

The legal tender of the Kingdom of God, Heaven are: Righteousness, Peace and Joy in the Holy Ghost, and the belief that Jesus Christ is Lord of all. If you have such, then, you have received the right to become a son and daughter of God.

So, Jesus is the reason for the season. Anything or anyone who will not identify with Christ, have not a part in the Christ

It is very sad today that many believers even the very elect have adopted the use of “X-mas” instead of “Christmas,” the original name of the gathering of the people of Christ.

Common sensically, for those of you who are familiar with mathematical variables. We learned as we were taught that the letters “x and y” denotes unknown variables. And this is true, how then, would any believer represent Christ as an unknown variable, since we have come terms with the belief that the coming of Jesus Christ was for the remission of our sins, to bring succor or to save the dastardly situation that was complicated by the fall of the first man, Adam.

I don’t know your experiences with life. I don’t know what difference you have had to tell from who you were before you knew Christ and who you are now that you know or have had an encounter with Christ. You are the only one who can tell the difference from your experiences. But for me, I am the only one who can tell what difference Christ has made in my life from my days of ignorance to this moment that I understand who Christ is in God and the leagues of human existence.

So, I make bold to stand openly to testify to the world of what I know about this Christ, that He has made a tremendous difference in my life. Who I was before meeting Him and who I am, today that I have encountered Him, is beyond what words can express. Christ is saviour and King. There is no other under heaven or earth given to men that we might be saved. There is none who can take the diseases if the body, there is none who can take the diseases if the soul. There is no other one that had this kind of power, there is no other name with the awesome power to save.

Christ is not an unknown variable, to me. Christ is the real deal! My experience of Him, with Him have been extremely exhilarating. Yes, I don’t have all I want, I don’t enjoy the luxuries of life: all the beautiful cars, the beautiful state-of-the-art homes, or all that the luxuries of life would offer. But Christ had made great impressions upon my life. He has given me all that pertains to life and godliness. (2 Peter 1:3).

Why then, would I prefer to replace the Christ who offered Himself as a sacrifice for me in death with an unknown variable?

The question would be, is Jesus Christ, christ in your life because He gives you things (blesses) you?

The Bible, the book of books says, “If we are in this life only we have hope in Christ, then, we are of all men, most miserable.” – (1 Corinthians 15:19).

The Misplaced Identity of Christ:
Xmas or Christmas? What are the differences?

Are they the same? Hmmm!

Let us take a look at this…..

The difference between the word
“Christmas” and the word
X-mass.

Christmas is the combination of two words: “Christ and Mass.”

Before Christ was born, many years ago, 25th December was used to be “Pagan’s day for Sacrifices.”

Later in the year 533 AD Constantine, the head of the then Roman Church which is today the Roman Catholic, changed the day from “Pagan’s day of sacrifices to Jesus Christ’s birth commemoration.”

He called the day “The mass for Christ i.e. Christmas”

  1. Christ in Hebrew means, “The Anointed One.” or “The Chosen One.”

2.  Mass in Greek means “A Big Gathering of People.” Thus, Christmas means “The Gathering of People of Christ (His Followers/Disciples).” Then, where did the word “X-mass” come from?

Be aware!!

It’s believed that as the day of the gathering of Christ’s Followers, “Christmas.” Became famous and respected worldwide, and Atheists & Antichrists decided to change it by removing the name Christ for an X to mean that there is no Christ.

It changed the meaning by reading X-mass i.e. to mean “there is no gathering of Christ’s Followers.”

Merry Christ-mas (In advance) and not X-mas.

X is often used to designate a person “thing/factor, whose true name is unknown/withheld.

X” has nothing to do with Christ “The Anointed One,”

Let’s not replace  “Christ with “X” Therefore, don’t use X-mas but use
“Christmas”.

You might have made that mistake last year by wishing people X-mas instead of Christmas.

GOD bless you as you help and join in correcting this big error.

How did we get to this? Who brought about this changes?

How can the letter “X” stand for “Christ”?

In Greek, the language of the New Testament, the word Christos (Christ) begins with the letter “X,” or chi. Here’s what it looks like:

Χριστός this Ancient Greek word is pronounced as Christos, which means “Anointed

The Greek name Χρίστος is derived from the earlier word χριστός (note the difference in accentuation), meaning “anointed” and which became the Christian theological term for the Messiah.

So how did that word get abbreviated?

In the early fourth century, Constantine the Great, Roman Emperor from 306-337, popularized this shorthand for Christ. According to legend, on the eve of his great battle against Maxentius, Constantine had a vision that led him to create a military banner emblazoned with the first two letters of Christ on it: chi and rho.

The Chi-Rho

These two letters, then, became a sort of shorthand for Jesus Christ.

When did the Greek letter start to be used in the word “Christmas?”

Most scholars agree that the first appearance of this abbreviation for Christmas dates to 1021, “when an Anglo-Saxon scribe saved himself space by writing XPmas,” reported First Things. Parchment paper was quite expensive, so any techniques for saving space were welcome. The abbreviation stuck and eventually was shortened to Xmas.

The poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge used it in a letter, dated December 31, 1801, for instance: “On Xmas day I breakfasted with Davy.” The verb “xmassing” was also used in the magazine Punch in 1884, according to The Guardian.

In all of everything, satan is at the center of every form of infiltration of truth. While God sets order to things and life. satan, on the other hand, is working subtly to negate God’s creativity in order to deter people from loving and respecting the order of God.

Remember, satan dealing with the woman. He said to the woman, Did God really say that when eat of the tree of good and evil, you shall die? That is not true, when you eat of the fruit of that tree, you will surely live – you will have better knowledge about this life. She ate of the fruits and truly saw life in a whole new level.
“Merry Christmas” and not Merry X-mas.

To cap up this story, I need to spell this out this truth. The story of Christmas inspires hope, love and compassion for human life and existence. It expresses awe, in the good intentions of God towards restoring sanity, back to the denigration that sin brought into the good, sweet relationship/fellowship God and man had enjoyed.

A cursory look to life will give a euphoric but temporal sense of Independence, as though we can exist as separate bodies. But in earnest, God does not, will never ever need man to be God. Men will always need God to live and ever enjoy a good life.

Franklin Graham, son of Billy, put it like this:

For us as Christians, [Christmas] is one of the most holy of the holidays, the birth of our savior Jesus Christ. And for people to take Christ out of Christmas. They’re happy to say merry Xmas. Let’s just take Jesus out. And really, I think, a war against the name of Jesus Christ.

Before the existence of man, God was. God was there before the existence of time. God created the man and gave time and seasons so that after he has lived for some years, he bows out of life in death. This is why human beings die after we have exhausted our time and seasons here on the Earth.

However, to operate and have any relevance or impact the world, God is incapacitated without man. Also, for man to Kingdom useful, he is incapacitated without God. Therefore, God requires the help of man to help establish, and make him an authority in the world, He (God) created for the man for a home.

God is God, all by Himself! In His glorious realms, He (God) does not need man, not for anything at all. Likewise, man does not seem to be needing God for anything. But time will tell the best part of the story.

Christmas began for us the story of true life, what you could call real living – Christ’s lifestyle. This is why it is called Christianity, a life coming from Christ. This story of this lifestyle was capped by the history told in Antioch where the disciples were said to have become like the Christ, their leader who had gone away from them in the physical. But who was always with them in the spirit.

Life starts with God, and His Christ whom He sent down to restore the fallen state of man. To replace Christ in Christmas, which tells us the Nativity and purpose of the coming of Christ with an “X” is it were is to tell us that we do not know the man who gave us the season or that we have become so evil infested that we have outrightly chosen to deny He is the reason for the season.

Whosoever was that man who brought this replacement, must have had an agenda – such a man must have been a satanist.

Christmas is a mass, gathering of the people of “Christ,” not a people of “X,” an unknown god. We celebrate the birth of Christ at Christmas, folks, not something or someone that is not known. Any alterations, big or small in the truth has a devastating effect on the future of that truth in time.

Having gone through the Ancient Greeks’ history, I have come to the understanding that the letter “X” is a Greeks representation of the word “Χριστός” which is officially denoted by the letter X. But we have not been educated about this development. It would have been nice to make popular this knowledge to help us from misunderstanding the whole thing. People grow, and their thinking capacities keep developing with time.

However, as we had said earlier, for the latest development in knowledge the use of X in Christmas has been adulterated. So, the point here is that we either educate the people about this Greek history or scrap the use of the X in X-mas to Just leave it as Christmas. That will be the most appropriate thing to do.

So, Christmas should be spelled as it is to avoid those controversies, not Xmas!
