April Fool’s Day

The World calls this day (April 1) “All Fools Day” or “April Fools Day”. But Who is a REAL FOOL according to the Bible?

5 times in the Bible Jesus chose to address people as “fools” in the gospels.

1. The Careless Fool – Mat. 7:24-27 (Those who do not put the Word into practice)
2. The Hypocritical Fool – Mat. 23:17-19 (Those who live double-standard lives)
3. The Sleeping Fool – Mat. 25:1-8 (Those who are unprepared for Jesus’ coming)
4. The Materialistic Fool – Luke 12:16-20 (Those who live for this world)
5. The Unbelieving Fool – Luke 24:25 (Those who do not believe in his promises)

Who else does the Bible say is a fool?
1. He Who Says There Is No God. Psalm. 14:1
2. He Who Trusts In His Own Heart. Proverbs 28:26.
3. He Who Is Always Right [In His Own Eyes.] Proverbs 12:15.
4. He Who Despises Wisdom and Instruction. Proverbs 1:7.
5. He Who Is Soon Angry. Eccl. 7:9.
6. He Who Slanders Others. Proverbs 10:18.
7. He Who Mocks At Sin. Proverbs 14:9.
8. He Who Talks A Lot. Proverbs 29:11
9. He Who Minds Others’ Business. Proverbs 20:3; 26:17.

God bless us with wisdom

WHEN YOU DIE

When you die, don’t worry.
Don’t be concerned over your decaying body because people will take care of what is required.

*They will..
*1 – Buy you new white clothes
*2 – Wash you
*3 – Take you out of your home
*4 – to your new place of stay (the grave)
*5 – Many will come to bid farewell at your funeral – in fact, many will cancel work for the sake of your burial, even though most of them didn’t know you whilst you were alive.
*6 – Your belongings will be gotten rid of:
* your cars
* your check books
* your bags
* your shoes
* your clothes
* Your job, someone else will take your position*
* Your wealth will go to inheritors
* Whereas you will remain to be questioned about every minor and major deed
* There will be 3 types of mourners over you
* 1- The people who knew you only at face value will say ‘poor man’
* 2- Your friends will grieve for hours or days but then return to laughter
* 3- The deep grief at your household will last for a week, two weeks, a month, 2-months or even a year

* And thereafter they will add you to their memories
* And so your story amidst the people ended
* And your story with the reality begins, *where will you spend Eternity?*
* And that is the life after death
* Indeed, the following things will leave you:-
* 1- Beauty
* 2- Wealth
* 3- Health
* 4- Children
* 5- The mansions
* 6- Your spouse
* And your real life has just started, *Eternity*.

The question here is….
*What have you prepared for your Eternity or hereafter?*
This reality needs to be thought over: Therefore
*Take care of these two things ..*
*1- Salvation*
*2- Sanctification*
Don’t forget your *Prayers*
*And don’t forget to pass this message on to many…* Because once your eyes closes in death, the only property left for you is *”your relationship WITH GOD”.*
Where will you spend Eternity, *Heaven or Hell.* Let’s all live a *holy life* my Brothers & sisters.

Please forward for evangelism..

To All Women

Lawyer and Judge 

A lady committed a crime and she was sent to court. The punishment for the crime was life imprisonment. She shed tears for help but to no avail. When the case was called in court she started weeping. Her husband, family and friends who accompanied her started weeping but there was no hope. But something happened. Before the lady could stand in the witness box a man stood up and the court room was silent. Everyone looked at Him. He was noble and gentle. He stood in the witness box and interceded on behalf of the woman. The case was difficult, yet He used all His strength, energy and resources to fight on behalf of the woman. After a long legal battle between the man and the accusers, the lady was set free. The lady fell before the man and asked *‘WHO ARE YOU’* The next day the lady deliberately committed another crime and was sent to the same court. As soon as she entered the courtroom, she saw the man who interceded for her the previous day on the judgement seat. He was no longer a lawyer, but a judge. With smiles on her face the lady said *’I have come again’* The man lifted his head and said ‘yesterday I was a lawyer, so I fought for you, even when you were guilty. But today I am a judge and my judgement must be fair.’ With tears in the ladies eyes she asked for the second time *’WHO ARE YOU’* and the man replied *”YESTERDAY I WAS YOUR SAVIOUR. BUT NOW I AM YOUR JUDGE”* Today Christ Jesus is our lawyer and redeemer, but a day is coming when He will give a fair judgement to everyone. *JESUS IS COMING SOON, SO PREPARE TO MEET HIM*. I will not force u to share this with

 others, but as for me, the gospel must keep spreading! If u believe in spreading the gospel, then do so. This will help someone on your contact.

Hopeful in the Lord

*🌷You will rise as a champion, your rainy season is coming.🌷*
My mother used to cook beans, but before she cooked the beans she picked bad and dirty beans and threw them in our backyard and only cooked the good beans, but when the rains came they became seeds and germinated and started to grow up and looked beautiful,  and the same person who threw  them away started harvesting . She  started to see/realize that the beans she threw away had value. 
Now let me tell you my brothers and sisters,don’t cry when people throw you at the backyard, don’t cry when they reject you, don’t cry while they are looking down at you. The rain is coming and the same people who rejected you will invite you .God loves those that are left out and looked down upon, God will bless you, just stay connected to him and everyone will see how valuable you are. They might try to bury you, but remember that you have germinating ability inside of you through the spirit of God. 
Isa 40:31

 but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint
