Therefore, God elevated him to the place of highest honour and gave him the name above all other names, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. - Philippians 2:9-11
Then Jesus spoke to His disciples about His impending death and resurrection, it was lost in translation.
They didn't seem to understand. They envisioned Jesus establishing His earthly kingdom where they would rule and reign with Him.
Jesus was about to reveal something to His disciples which they had not understood up to this point, and it was simply this: He would die on a cross.
There would be a crucifixion before there will be the glory. So Jesus posed a very important question to them: "Who do people say that the Son of Man is?"
This question is still being posed to us today, and it is the most important question anyone ever will respond to.
There are really only four options, four responses to that great question Christ posed.
Either Jesus was a legend, a liar, a lunatic, or the Lord.
We know that He was not a legend, because there is more than enough historical evidence to clearly confirm that Jesus Christ lived and died at a marked point in time.
Others will say that He was lying about everything He said, while others would say that He was mad.
But we have to respond to this question Jesus posed. And ultimately everyone everywhere will say that Jesus Christ is Lord.
Christians, skeptics, agnostics, atheists, everyone - regardless of their religion - eventually will say that Jesus Christ is Lord when they stand before God.
Prayer: O Lord, You are my Lord and Saviour. You are the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords.
Scriptural Reading: Philippians 2:1-11

Prayer for the new week

The Almighty God will surely give you reasons to thank Him. You will not die before your time.
The Almighty God will smile on you and you will rejoice all the days of your life in Jesus mighty name!
"When the LORD turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream. Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen, The LORD hath done great things for them." Psalms 126:1-2 (KJV) I pray that God will restore all your lost glories and belongings in Jesus name.

Happy new week folks from us ASB'S World.

The 'drunken woman'... Read

The little boy who tended the sheep.....
These are few of the names given by people who were supposed to know better. They were names given to people who did not seem good enough. They were the descriptions given to people who were being judged by knowledgeable 'leaders'
By their judgement and calculations, these people did not deserve the good, not to talk of the best.
The mother of Samuel sought an answer.
Sorrowful, she walked into her local church.
She cried her heart to God as she mumbled and moaned.
In deep prayer and communication with God, until approached by PASTOR...
Pastor had the audacity to interrupt this woman.....
Not with a word of comfort or THUS SAYS THE LORD....
But an accusation.....
A woman in need runs to church, to God , a place of refuge and he that was meant to comfort is the one who is killing her with words.....because she did not look like the others, she did not have the countenance of the other church users, who knew to shout loud so all may hear their prayers.
Hannah got up. She was deeply distressed, and she cried bitterly as she prayed to the Lord . Meanwhile, Eli the priest was sitting in his place by the door. “Almighty Lord , look at me, your servant! See my trouble and remember me! Don't forget me! ” She was praying silently; her lips were moving, but she made no sound.
So Eli thought that she was drunk, and said to her, “Stop making a drunken show of yourself! Stop your drinking and sober up!”
“No, I'm not drunk, sir,” she answered. “I haven't been drinking! I am desperate, and I have been praying, pouring out my troubles to the Lord . Don't think I am a worthless woman. I have been praying like this because I'm so miserable.”
“Go in peace,” Eli said, “and may the God of Israel give you what you have asked him for.”
1 Samuel 1:9-11, 13-17 GNB
Its not a thing of the past, its still with us today.
Let me ask you....have you ever looked at an individual and judged them by their looks or by their actions, even without knowing how they got there?
If you answered YES, you are not any different from the knowledgeable who judged wrongly.
The 'appearance of Christianity' makes us look at others as though they are lost eternally.
Our seemingly holy utterances makes us exclude people who may genuinely have encountered God or are seeking Him, but they do not have the typical attitude.
By looking and judging them this way, we miss God. We miss sharing Christ with them, we miss reaching out to those whose faith may be at a dip....because they don't look ' like us'
Hannah , thank God for that woman, decided to explain herself to the PASTOR.....who is so used to sitting at his place, that he has never put himself in anybody's position. She did not take offence....God decided to bless her through the mouth of the same PASTOR....
Sisters, many times, we are judged and misunderstood.
They isolate you because YOUR MARRIAGE DIDN'T though you were in the marriage relationship all by yourself.
They point fingers at you because you are matured singles. ..and its 'her past that is catching up now'
Your face is synonymous with PRAYER REQUESTS. are always in need of prayers.
Don't take offence.....ignore the knowledgeables! Choose to tolerate insult...
Its in the same temple where Hannah was called drunken that she dedicated Samuel.....and the PASTOR SAW IT LIVE AND DIRECT.....
To my sisters who are misunderstood......hold on.....YOUR SOUND OF REJOICING SHALL REACH ALL CONCERNED....its only a mater of time.
To the specialists who know to take their seat and are able to judge from afar.....HOPE YOU KNOW THAT THE SEAT MAY BECOME VACANT....someday..

Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that one's slaves whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death, or of obedience leading to righteousness? -
Romans 6:16
Whose slave are you? You may think you are your own person, the master of your own destiny. But in reality, each of us yields or gives ourselves to someone or something.
We are all slaves of someone or something. You are either a slave of God or a slave of sin. What a glory to be a slave of God!
The Bible says in Romans 6:22, "But now having been set free from sin, and having become slaves of God, you have your fruit to holiness, and the end, everlasting life."
This word "slave" was translated from a Greek word that would have been readily understood in that culture.
It referred to a slave who had been bought at the slave market then granted freedom by their new masters. In other words, the master would purchase that slave and then set him or her free.
Slaves who were so thankful to their masters for such a compassionate gesture and wanted to voluntarily serve them would be designated as a "bondslave".
They are slaves by choice. The grateful slave was not a slave for pay or a slave out of fear, but a slave by choice. That is what Paul said he was, and that is also what we ought to be.
Becoming a slave of God has some glorious benefits:
• You are set free from sin. You bear the fruit of holiness (joy, peace, righteousness).
• You receive everlasting life. Whose slave are you? Are you the slave of God or the slave of sin? The choice is up to you.
Prayer: Lord, I yield myself to You as Your bondservant.
Scriptural Reading: Romans 6:15-23


Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Ephesians 6:10
Just as police officers call for back-up when they sense that danger is imminent, the first thing we must realize about spiritual battle is that in our own strength, we are no match for the devil.
I think a healthy respect of our adversary is in order for believers today. We don't want to underestimate him, nor do we want to overestimate him. We want to accurately assess who he is and what his abilities are.
We need to recognize that he is powerful; we don't want to try and take him on in our own strength.
Sometimes you hear some preachers calling the devil silly little names, laughing at him, or making jokes about him.
But we must remember what Jude 9 says: "Yet Michael the archangel, in contending with the devil, when he disputed about the body of Moses, dared not bring against him a reviling accusation, but said, `The Lord rebuke you!'
Even the high-ranking Archangel Michael did not dare to condemn the devil with mockery. He simply said, "The Lord rebuke you!" There was a respect of the enemy.
The reason we need to "be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might" is that Satan wants to get us away from that. It is our power base. He wants to separate us from God, because the moment he gets us away from Him, we become an easy prey.
Thus, the devil wants to put a wedge between God and us. The only power that can defeat Satan is the power of Jesus Christ. Be strong in the Lord. Stay close to Him. Never let anything come between you and the Lord.
Prayer: Lord, draw me closer to you so that I will be strong in you and in the power of your might.
Scriptural Reading: Ephesians 6:10-20

Health: “ An Avocado A Day Keeps The Doctor Away, Forever!

There are 5 reasons why the old quote “an apple a day keeps the doctor away.” should be changed in “ an avocado a day keeps the doctor away, forever!” .
Avocados Won’t Make You Fat

There are so many things like fast food, chips, soda, white bread that will make you fat. But avocados will help you with many things monounsaturated fat, olive oil, and a high preponderance of oleic acid – this is a good fat and a beautifying oil. If we want to keep slim as we age we need the oleic acid. It is also believed to decrease our chances of developing heart disease.

Curbs Hunger
Meals that include avocados and other good fats taking away the need to eat more cause you to feel full, have shown recent studies. Avocados produce a blood-sugar, friendly, ketogenic effect because they consist mostly of healthy fatty acids. Go for the avocado the next time you reach for a bag of chips.

Packed With Nutrients
What makes the avocado such a healthy treat is the things that are inside of it. For starters packed inside each one, there are typically over 14 minerals. Each avocado also contains:

18 essential amino acids and 2 grams of protein per 100 grams of avocado.
Soluble fiber.
Phytosterols: beta-sitosterol, campesterol, and stigmasterol that may help keep arthritic and other forms of inflammation under control.

Carotenoids: Antioxidants and oil-soluble carotenoids are contained in avocados in an unusually high amount. These include: o-carotene, yellow alpha carotene and yellow lutein, but also many lesser-known carotenoids including yellow epsilon-carotene, yellow neochrome, yellow neoxanthin, yellow chrysanthemaxanthin, orange beta cryptoxanthin, orange zeaxanthin, and yellow violaxanthin.

Chlorophyll: Avocados woderful green glow comes from this. Chlorophyll is a deodorizer, detoxifier, and neutralizer of toxins.

Polyhydroxylated fatty alcohols (PFAs): in ocean plants these are more widely prevalent but fairly unique among land plants—making the avocado tree (and its fruit) unusual in this regard.
Vitamins: B (folic acid), C, E

You Can Add Avocado To Many Meals
Avocados can be used to turn ordinary meals into super meals, and that’s why they are awesome. You’ve got guacamole if you mash up some avocados. on some hempseed or chia-seed gluten-free bread or raw cracker throw a few avocado slices and you have a tasty snack. You can place avocados on top of almost any food.
With sea salt or nearly any form of seaweed avocados are great. by the high sodium content of sea salt and seaweeds their high potassium content is balanced. Avocados are also wonderful in salads. More recently avocados have made their way into smoothie recipes. Of course, no guacamole is possible without its key ingredient.

Long-Term Health
Avocados can benefit your health in the long run not mentioning the tons of nutrients thay have and that they are very delicious. Those good fats will help keep your blood sugar levels in check, your good cholesterol at optimum levels and can neutralize inflammation in the brain and body all while being a great energy source. What a replacement for meat and cheese.
