The Bible dedicates a whole book to specifically call out foolishness. I have attempted to draw out every portion of Proverbs that addresses the fool. I will summarise the lesson for each mention of the fool and leave the reference. This list can help you run a quick self-diagnosis to see if you are a fool in the eyes of…More

Bible history teaches us that the wrath of God is often preceded by a lull. Before Noah’s ark was filled and sealed, the people on earth were consumed with the everyday activities of life- marriage, work, entertainment etc. Then the flood came. Before the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, the people were in deep self indulgence and consumed with their…More

When David came to the battlefield and found all the men shaking in their boots because of Goliath, he inquired about the reward for slaying the Nephilim offspring. This inquiry was met by hostility from David’s eldest brother, Eliab. Eliab calls David proud and wicked of heart (1 Samuel 17:28). David rejects this false identity label and insists on his…More

In 2 Corinthians 2:11 Paul says that believers should not be ignorant of Satan’s devices. The word Satan means adversary. His other name the Devil means a liar. To put the two together (adversary and liar), it is axiomatic that our enemy opposes us through deception. This is also evident from scripture. Revelation 12:9 ”So the great dragon was cast…More

The pride of Namaan in 2 Kings 5 almost cost him his healing. Naaman came all the way from Aram to Israel to have his leprosy cured because he heard a witness speak of the power of God to heal him. He was directed to meet Elisha the prophet. Elisha did not meet the dignitary. He sent out his servant…More

I know it is not Christmas time, but I have to share a Christmas testimony because of something that happened to me last week on Friday. On the night of Friday the 29th of September 2023, I was seated in my living room. I was then overcome by a sudden compelling urge to sing the song “O Holy Night.” I…More

The story of Joseph in Egypt teaches us that what seems like unanswered prayers from God, a life of seemingly unending pain, unjust suffering and uncertainty about our future could very well be the ingredients to the right life and God’s perfect plan for our lives. Joseph’s greatest prayers are answered exceedingly, abundantly and beyond what he could ask or…More

We are gathered here today to mourn the untimely death of our dear beloved Self. He was a devoted fornicator, esteemed thief, cherished blasphemer and a wonderful sanctimonious man that we all loved to hate. Early life and Education Self was born promptly at the same time his biological body came into this earth. He was empowered by the gloriously…More

Let your heart be ready the day God forgives your enemies. At the heart of the Gospel is a plea for us not to allow the grace and mercy of God to be an offence to your sensibilities. In the parable of the prodigal son, the elder brother was offended by the Father’s restoration of the younger sinful brother. The…More

Hi Ernest. There is this famous verse that we love quoting as Christians. Romans 12:1 “Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God–this is your spiritual act of worship.” (NIV, 1984). Could you explain to me what the spiritual act of worship means? Thanks for asking…More

The world’s life expectancy is currently 72 years. The life expectancy in my country, Kenya, is 62 years. If we round off these ages, you could generally say that the average person will die between the ages of 65 and 70. We often attribute mid-life to the age of 50. But it really is a wrong assumption because the majority…More

When you examine the scriptures carefully, you discover that lust is always a distraction from a life of purpose. When Joseph was tempted by another man’s wife to have a clandestine affair, he aptly highlighted that the offer by Mrs. Potiphar was antithetical to fulfilling his purpose. Genesis 39:7-9 ..and after a while his master’s wife took notice of Joseph…More

Proverbs 27:20 “Hell and Destruction are never full; so the eyes of man are never satisfied.” (NKJV) This verse is a reminder not to be deceived by our eyes. I would like to highlight this deception in our quest for sexual purity. The more nudity and impurity we indulge our eyes on, the more unsatisfied our souls become. And if…More
