He was and Is not Only a Man
Who was not only a Man? Jesus Christ my Lord and Saviour. Jesus was not only a man He was and He is still the Only Begotten Son Of God and He was and Is Still God. HE was GOD in FLESH
Many unbelievers have seen Christ as just an human being who wasted His time dying on the cross. The real truth and revelation of who Christ is has being watered down in some Churches of today.Many people say Christ Jesus was just a good moral teacher. They compare Christ with Gandi, Muhammed and philosophers like Aristotle, Socrates.All the truth about Christ that is being watered down today is because people no longer to Seek Christ for Who He Is but for what they can receive from Christ. People don’t trust Christ again, many former strong and true believers of Christ are now doubting what they first believed. Because the real truth of the gospel is hardly being preached.Scripture says Romans 1:16.” I am not ashamed of the gospel because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes first for the Jews and then for the gentiles( Scripture didn’t say for only a particular set of people but for everyone – Atheist, Muslims, Pagans, Budhist, New Age believers, Mormons etc)
“The truth of who Christ really is has being taken for granted. We Christians say and believe Jesus is the Saviour of the World, Son Of God, Great Healer, Great Physician yet some Christians still go to herbalist who haven’t and can’t save themselves for help in time of trouble.
Back to my main message Our Lord Jesus Christ was not only a Man has some believe He was and He is God.Come to think of it which Man can the things Christ did without having God with Him. No mere Man can do the things Christ did. AS C.S LEWIS said because Jesus is so clear in describing His own Nature, a statement like I’m ready to accept Christ as a great moral teacher, but I don’t accept His claim to be God doesn’t hold up.Jesus Christ said before Abraham was born He was and He Is I Am
Jesus Christ Is Supreme. GOD himself said that Jesus is His Son. So I wonder why anybody will say Jesus is not the Son Of God when God called Him His Son. Truly those who don’t know God can’t know Christ and those who don’t Christ can’t know God.Scripture says In Colosians 1:15-20 ” He is the Image of the Invisible God. The First born over all creation 16. For by Him all things were created, things in Heaven and on Earth, Visible and Invisible whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities, all things were created by Him and For Him. He is before all things and in Him all things hold together. And He is the Head of the body, the church He is the beginning and the Firstborn from among the dead so that in everything he might have the Supremacy. 19. For God was pleased to have all His fullness dwell in Him 20. And through Him to reconcile to Himself all things whether things on the earth or things in heaven, by making peace through His blood shed on the cross.Jesus is the Image of the invisible God. “Through Him you believe in God, who raised him from the dead and glorified him, and so your faith and hope are in God” 1Peter 1:21It His through Him you can have a strong faith in GodJesus is ever living One. He was and He is not only a Man but God. He died on the cross and rose on the third day for you to be Justified by Faith in Him.Jesus proved in many ways that He was God during His earthly existence and He is still proving and revealing that He is God and God only begotten Son. So why do we gentiles want to be like the Pharisees of Christ days on earth.Jesus was and He is still DIVINE and HUMAN there is no Man on earth like Christ
HE is God , He was not just a Man He was and Is still supreme. Jesus is the only saviour of the world He has done it all on the Cross of Calvary 2016 years ago. The world needs no other Saviour and there is no other Saviour expected to be born. Apart from Christ second coming. Any other way to Christ aside Christ is False and a
and a Counterfeit. Which other religion aside Christianity as a saviour that rose from the dead and His alive forever more.Jesus died for all Mankind to reconcile man back to God.He is ready to recieve youAre you ready to SurrenderHebrews 13:8 says Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever more.Revelation 1: 18 says I am the Living the One; I was dead, and behold I am alive forever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades” New student Bible, NIVRomans 10:9-10 says That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from dead you will be saved 10. For it is with with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved”If yes say this prayerLORD JESUS CHRIST I ADMIT AM A SINNER (CONFESS YOUR SINS) PLEASE FORGIVE ME ALL MY SINS LET YOUR PRECIOUS BLOOD WASH AWAY ALL MY STAINS AND UNRIGHTEOUSNESS AND PLEASE WRITE MY NAME IN THE BOOK OF LIFE.IF YOU SAID THIS PRAY FROM YOUR HEART IN SINCERITY YOU ARE NOW A BORN AGAIN CHRISTIAN Join a Bible believing Church to grow in the faith.
In the Kingdom of God there is no failure. Christ In ones life assures success. JESUS Christ nailed failure to the cross In order for you to be successful. Jesus doesn’t just want you to be saved He also wants you to have a successful life here on earth. Jesus doesn’t want you and I to be a failure. So in Christ Jesus there is success. It is only in Christ that Success that last for a long time is found. Satan can’t give one everlasting success. Rather Satan will give you Success to take something more important from you. “For the thief cometh but to steal, to kill and to destroy”
God also promises us success If we obey Him
Deut 28:13: “The Lord will make you the head and not the tail, If you pay attention to the commands of the Lord your God that I give you this day and carefully follow them you will always be at the top never at the bottom”.
Obeying God and following His plan and purpose for your life will make you a success. Accepting Jesus Christ as ones Lord and personal Saviour transit you into the kingdom of God. And in the kingdom of God there is no failure.
You can’t be living in sin and expect to enjoy extraordinary success.
You can’t claim to be a child of God and be a failure.
Failure is work of darkness. A True Son and daughter of God is never a failure. God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy spirit wants you to be successful.
I tell you this know one can achieve extra-ordinary Success on earth without the backing of the Blessed Trinity.
To be a success you must have being born again living a Holy and righteous life, obeying the voice of God and following God will for your life.
As moses assured the Israelite that if they obey the commandment of God they will be at the top and not at the bottom. So is Lord Jesus Christ as assured you success.
You can’t be in Christ and be a failure.
Letting Jesus be your Lord and saviour is necessary to be a success in Christ.
Success is only assured in Christ.
If you Just read this and you haven’t given your life to Christ kindly say this from the bottom of your heart
LORD JESUS I ADMIT AM A SINNER I BELIEVE YOU DIED ON THE CROSS FOR MY SINS PLEASE CLEANSE ME OF ALL MY UNRIGHTEOUSNESS COME INTO MY HEART BE THE LORD OF MY LIFE AND WRITE MY NAME IN THE BOOK OF LIFE.
If you just said this you have being saved. join a bible believing church where holiness, righteousness is preached.
Are you Sure You Love God?
God loves us, He loves us so much that He sent His only begotten Son to die for our sins and He say whoever believes In His only begooten Son Jesus Christ shall not perish but have everlasting life. What a loving Father! Jesus christ also loves us so much that He gave His life to die for our Sins. and God raised Him up from the dead. Jesus christ Loves us so much that He intercedes For Us before God. But yet we human fail to reciprocate that Love. God loves us and You has a child of God is expected to love Him in return. But the truth is many today who claim to love God say this just with words of mouth. It is not shown in their actions and deeds.
So I ask Are you sure you Love GOD? What in your actions and deeds shows that you Love God?
In this short write – up backed up by the scriptures. In John 4 vs 19 -21. It is written
”We love because he first loved us. If anyone says, ”I love God,” yet hates His brother, He is a liar for anyone who does not love His brother, whom He has seen, cannot love God whom he has not seen. And he has given us this command: whoever Loves God must also love His brother.
In our environment of today, many who claim to be sons and daughters of God. Don’t even live in Love with their brothers and sisters, friends. Many live in disharmony and hatred. Many aren’t living in Love. Yet they claim to love God.
Am not writing this to judge anyone. But the truth must be told. The simple truth which is backed by the scriptures; you can’t claim to love God whom you have not seen, when you brother whom you have seen you hate him.
God is love and the truth in 1 John 4:16
”And so we know and rely on the Love God has for us.
God is love, whoever lives in love lives in God and God in him”.
We ought to know that Love is the fulfilment of the Law. In Romans 13:10 Love does no harm to its neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfilment of the law.
So anyone who claims to love God won’t live in hatred towards God, friends even towards enemies. Except for the fact that you must Hate the devil.
In today, children of God love the world more than they Love God. It is said by Paul that Sons and daughters of God are made alive in christ and dead to the world.but it isn’t the same in the lives of christians, believers of today. A believers faith must be borne out by Love.
In 1 John 2:15 It is written
”Do not love the world or anything in the world, If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in Him. For everything in the world -the cravings of sinful man, the lust of his eyes and the boasting of what he has and does- comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will God lives forever.”
You can’t claim to love God and yet continue in Sin, you can’t claim to love God and yet don’t believe in Jesus christ, you can’t claim to love God and yet love the things of the world more than you Love God.
So I ask again Are you sure you love God.
If you truly claim to love God. You will serve Him in spirit and in truth, you will believe in Him and also believe in Jesus christ. If you truly claim to Love God all you do will be borne out of Love and you will Joyfully even in the face of challenges. You will live in love, joy, peace, gentleness, patience, humility, holiness.
God loves us and he expects us to reciprocate the love by Fellowshiping in Him in Love, spirit and in truth.
Let’s not allow the grace of God be for nothing sake.
Don’t let us let the Love of God towards us be in vain.
Rather we should live in Love, grow in grace and the the Love and Grace of God be sufficient for us.
YOUR ATTITUDES 4
Hi great minds, it is with great love I write to you this afternoon. Here I am again with Your attitudes 4. Yesterday I dropped Your attitudes to your teacher. But today It is
YOUR ATTITUDES TO YOUR FRIEND which is an excerpt from LIVING A LIFE OF A GOOD STUDENT written by my Humble self.
One thing many don’t know Is that ones attitude to friends also matters in Life. this post though is centered basically on student, teenagers like myself and the youths.
Students attitudes to friends also shows If one is a good student or not.
Someone rightly said ”show me your friend and I will tell you whom you are, some say I will predict your future.
A friend in need is a friend indeed! What type of friend are you? Are you a friend that leads others astray? Are you a friend that plays on your friends intelligence?. Are you a friend that can be trusted?. Are you a friend that shows love and affection? Are you a friend that assist others in the weak areas? Are you a friend……? What kind of friend are you.
A friend is said to be one who knows and likes another person very much.
A student who wants to live a good student life must be a good friend.
”though some friends are closer to one than one’s family” Many today claim to be friends, infact best of friends. But I tend to wonder if they really know what friendship is. A good friend shows love and affection but do we see that in the friendship of today. Does this really exist among friends?
A good student, teenager. Never abuses his or her friends. A good student, teenager would be the one to call his/her friend aside and advise, correct in love.
To be a good student be a good friend, love your friend like yourself and never let them down and with that you are working towards being a good student.
That above is the attitude you should towards your friend an attitude of love and not of hate.
Many friends exist today but how many of the friends today are godly, how many of the friends of today wish their fellow friends good and not evil?

YOUR ATTITUDE 3
For two days now I have being dropping write ups on Your Attitude basically centered on Students, teenagers and the youths. That is the attitude students, teenagers and youth need to have to certain things. This which is an excerpt From A series book LIVING A LIFE OF A GOOD STUDENT written by my humble self.
Today I will continue on the certain things, people you should have a very positive and good attitude to. Today which is YOUR ATTITUDE TO YOUR TEACHER. lets roll
After God, Your Parent, Your Pastor, your Teachers are the next in line. Teachers play the role of a parent, Pastor, mentor with their role as a teacher.
In order for one to live a life of a good student. One must have a good attitude to our teachers, lecturers. We must respect them, the way we respect our parent at home.
Research have shown that student mostly relate well with their teachers than their parents, due to the fact that student spend much time with their teachers than with their parent.
Teachers play a very important role in our lives. So therefore If one has a good attitude to his/her teachers, one is gradually living a life of a good student, teenager.
The truth is a good student would never disrespect his/her teacher, never bend the teachers rule, never talk back at the teacher, never be arrogant before the teacher. No matter who that teacher maybe. And no matter the height one might have attained as a student.One needs to have a cordial relationship with his/her teacher.
If one hates his/her teacher there is likely possibility that one won’t be a good student. Onw won’t do well academically. Teachers are the best. Without them there won’t be you the lawyer, Doctor, Engineer, Accountant, Professor. Etc. They forever exist. Without them the educational system is nothing. Despite their pay they do their work with joy and happiness with the success of a student at heart.
The truth also is that the way a teachers feels towards a student also matters. That is why one must have a good attitude to his/her teacher. Respect them, love them
So therefore I urge all students, teenagers, reading this respect, care and have a very good attitude towards your teacher.
Please kindly share this with your friends.
Thanks and God bless you In Jesus name (Amen).
Samuel Paul Oluwatimilehin.
