Where it all tied together

In the beginning it all began with the statement

“Let Us”,

Unity in its perfection,

Never has it been heard that they were separate

The early believers all in one accord,

Just as the good old book of the Acts stated

Unity could and can not be overemphasized

Life in its sense was birth in Unity

We all claim to be members of his body yet separated in heart and fellowship

Integration and integrity missing

But imbalance and disproportion daily on the increase,

It is dominant in our gatherings of thanksgiving to the most holy and most United

Yet dissimilarity is found among the body of the most High, where concerns are to outshine

It is also dominant in that home where on Sunday mornings, the car is parked full with all members of a family but where God is absent due to lack of this important tie

It gradually creeps in to the Home,

Abiding and eating deep into the once loved filled lives,

Gradually love disintegrates and dislike pops up,

Daily its roots get hold and firm on the foundation that was once in Christ,

When the snow shines, when the storm breezes in, when there’s a little rain

It all comes crashing leading to Divorce, Separation, Dishonesty, and where it gets its proper hold may lead to Hell

Therefore, we all as body of His Kingdom,

Pray to rekindle the love, first in our homes,

That will shed the light, streaming from our hearts to everyone around us

And hereby, More love will Spring forth and grow daily among the Brethren

 

Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church and gave himself for it | Ephesians 5:25

A Day to Remember

Back to Bethel

It was a re-awakening,

The unending shouts of victory and deliverance

And the baffled looks on faces as they received

The power, was a great significance of the event

The hustle and bustle of people

Praising God and spilling the beans of his formidable works

Soon retracted as everyone retired to their daily busy lives

Back to the real world,

The first few days were perfect

People still in the spirit,

So overwhelming that we prayed for it to continue

It did continue in our hearts or so it seemed

For how long?

It didn’t last

I reflected;

It didn’t take too long to get cold

Church activities previously my priority

Became events of no special anteriority

Speaking to God during a dedicated hour

Soon became history

“I’m sure God understands I’m busy”, were my daily words

The family altar no longer existed in many homes

And fear became the daily bread of many

My reading table where existed just my bible

Now filled with many random books,

Magazines, DVDs and the bible beneath the rubble

My spare time spent on the computer, surfing the internet,

Facebook precisely

Most of my time spent on me “making ends meet”, I called it

And the flame in my heart quenching by the day

What went wrong?

We all did realise just like the old book stated:

“The love of many will wax cold”

“Yet we still do believe in the Lord” some may say

And now, here I stand in prayer

“Revive us, Oh Lord, pour out your spirit on all flesh

Like the prophesy of Joel.

Fill each heart with hunger for you

And never let us go”

Thus said the Lord: “Back to Bethel”
