WHAT IS TRUTH?





Standing before Pilate, Jesus bore several accusations from the Jews.  Under trial, Pilate asked the accused Jesus what his crime was.

“My kingdom is not of this world. If it were, my servants would fight to prevent my arrest by the Jewish leaders. But now my kingdom is from another place.” Jesus replied.

“You are a king, then!” said Pilate.

Jesus answered, “You say that I am a king. In fact, the reason I was born and came into the world is to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me.”

What is truth?” retorted Pilate.  Reference John 18:37-38

This grand question has been asked for centuries. Several philosophers and men of various schools of thought have attempted to answer this question.

Most people say truth is relative to perception, belief, culture and more. However, perception, belief, status, times, culture and all of which makes truth relative are shifting factors.


There is a need to identify the absolute truth, upon which our fragile lives, desperate hearts and feeble souls can stand when all the shifting factors give way.

We didn’t get Jesus response to Pilate’s question; perhaps because Pilate walked away as soon as he asked. 

However, Jesus already told us what he meant by the truth long before he stood before Pilate.

In John 13 verse 20, Jesus says, “I am telling you the truth: whoever receives anyone I send receives me also; and whoever receives me receives him who sent me." (GNT)

In John 14 verse 6, Jesus boldly declares, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; No one comes to the father except through me.


The identity of Jesus as the truth is the same through all generations, across diverse cultures of the world and shifting times and seasons.



Jesus as the truth is the sanity that exists in a world of chaos and epileptic experiences.

What would you rather believe?

A truth that is relative and ever shifting in perspective or the truth which is eternal and ever enduring through the ages?

I urge you this day, to believe the truth.

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16 (NIV)

HOW TO AWAKEN YOUR PROPHETIC ABILITY

If you are female and sense prophetic gifts on your life?
Here is a bible based, Christ Centered institution to help you develop and effectively use your prophetic gifts.
In simple terms, Prophecy can be defined as hearing the voice of God and speaking what He says. 
This gift is basically experienced in two ways. Auditory- Where  the one receiving the message hears words, which they then repeat or release  to those to whom one is sent.

Visual- This is referred to as The SEER gifting. Here, the receiver sees a message through some type of picture, which they then release or speak about as led.
These pictures are either received while awake by means of visions, while asleep through dreams or while half awake in trances.
Most prophetic people will experience both aspects at various times, but they tend to have one that is more dominant or frequent.
Can you relate with any of the above?

WHY DO “LOOSE” GIRLS MARRY FASTER?

“If this life has anything to gain at all, I’ll count it lost if I can’t hear you feel you, cause I need you…” rang my amazing ringtone by Lecrae. I picked up the sleek darling to see who misses me. It was this pretty friend of mine.
Ada (Not real name) and I met at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka in our first year. We had a lot in common and she was just my type (whatever that means) LOL. Anyway, I was (and still am) literally and figuratively in love with God and I noticed her heart was committed to God and His standards too.
Well, we graduated four years later and you know how life happens. We haven’t really kept in touch for a while. I heard sometime back that she was engaged and I called to say congratulations.  We talked about how life had been since after school and how we both are still fervently loving and serving the Lord. She said her wedding was three months away and I told her I definitely needed the aso-ebi (A uniform material sold to people who wish to attend an event).
