BEWARE OF FIERCE WOLVES WITH THE WORD OF GOD

⏰Wednesday of the Seventh Week of Easter (27 May 2020) 📖Acts 20:28-38; Ps 68:33-35a, 35b and 36b (R.v.33a); John 17:11b-19 🎤BEWARE OF FIERCE WOLVES WITH THE WORD OF GOD In one of his endtime discourses, Jesus warned his disciples of the expected infiltration of their company with false Christs and false prophets (cf. Matt 24:24). We might be walking in deception when we anticipate these in the likeness of the second beast of Rev 13:11-17.

MY WOMAN; MY EVERYTHING!

A LOVE LETTER TO MY DEARLY BELOVED MUM, EZINNE BESSY EDUMCHIEKE EZEONWUMELU TO CELEBRATE HER 85TH BIRTHDAY MY WOMAN; MY EVERYTHING! Dear Mum, Last night, I did put myself on the line when I carelessly made a post on Facebook that I will be telling our story for the world to hear. Yes, I said careless because if I had known that many people would be waiting for the story, I would have probably kept my peace intact. But the Holy Father, Pope Francis asked us to tell our story in order to give hope to the world in need...

⏰Saturday After Ascension (23 May 2020) 📖Acts 18:23-28; Ps 47:2-3, 8-9, 10; John 16:23b-28 🎤”ASK, AND YOU WILL RECEIVE, THAT YOUR JOY MAY BE FULL” (John 16:24b) Imagine a situation without Jesus after we have been with him for a long time. A close example to this would be the death of loved one especially one to whom we have been dependent to a very large extent. That is a picture of the situation the disciples found themselves since the Ascension of Jesus. However, Jesus knew that a situation like that would arise and it would bring them so much...
