Did you Know?

Christ JESUS the KING.

Worship his Majesty;
JESUS who died;
Now glorifies;
King of all Kings!!!!

Glory be unto God. Good day my brothers and sisters. It is truly an honour to come to you in the Blessed name of our Lord and Savour Jesus Christ. Who is the Object of Our Faith, the Only Faith that Saves is Faith in Him.

I want to really encourage all of you to revere Jesus. He is REAL and he is ALIVE!!!! For too long people have taken Him and his HOLY NAME for Granted.

Yes GOD IS A GOOD GOD. Yes his Mercies flows like a river wide. Yes he is a Forgiving God. He is also a HOLY GOD, a JEALOUS GOD and Yes we must give him the Respect and Honour that he deserves (Exodus 20:5; Deuteronomy 4:24). He is to be Feared because the Fear of the Lord is the Beginning of Wisdom (Psalm 111:10).

I had a friend (Marvin) he died back in 2003. We grew up together, we went to the same Church and as time went by we kept in touch. One day I visited Marvin at his workplace and he started to relay a story to me about his life and what he was experiencing with another friend of mine (Dixie) who shared a child with him (teenage parents). [Yes Christians make mistakes too, its what you do after is what's important and what have you learnt from the mistakes].

Now I could not believe this was the same Marvin I knew, out of his mouth spew only guile, bitterness, hate. I said to him, "Marvin, please don't talk like that, it is not Christlike". He answered "Look girl what you telling me about Jesus? Don't give me that Jesus talk, I not on Jesus I am a (religion) now." I left there with a very heavy heart and told my husband about it.

Two months later, Marvin got killed by the Police. It was a case of mistaken identity, they thought he was an assailant who robbed a gas-station. His death was horrible. Then they tried to cover their tracks by discrediting his name, much to the despair of his family. He left to mourn, a wife, an 8mth old daughter and a 10yr old son.

Why did this happen to him? I kept asking myself that question. Was it because he renounced Jesus? Someone he knew as a child? Someone his mother and father knew and taught him about? I really don't have the exact answer, what do you think?

"Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap (Galatians 6:7).

Death is certain but the Bible speaks about untimely death! Please read below about others who have mocked and disrespected the name of Jesus and God and their outcome.

John Lennon (Singer):

Some years before, during his interview with an American Magazine, he said:

"Christianity will end, it will disappear. I do not have to argue about that. I am certain. Jesus was ok, but his subjects were too simple, Today we are more famous than Him" (1966).

Lennon, after saying that the Beatles were more famous than Jesus Christ, was shot six times.

Tancredo Neves (President of Brazil )

During the Presidential campaign, he said if he got 500,000 votes from his party, not even God would remove him from Presidency.

Sure he got the votes, but he got sick a day before being made President, then he died .

Cazuza (Bi-sexual Brazilian composer, singer and poet)

During A show in Canecio ( Rio de Janeiro ), while smoking his cigarette, he puffed out some smoke into the air and said: "God, that's for you."

He died at the age of 32 of AIDS in a horrible manner.

The man who built the Titanic

After the construction of Titanic, a reporter asked him how safe the Titanic would be.

With an ironic tone he said: "Not even God can sink it"

The result: I think you all know what happened to the Titanic.

Marilyn Monroe (Actress)

She was visited by Billy Graham during a presentation of a show. He said the Spirit of God had sent him to preach to her. After hearing what the Preacher had to say, she said: "I don't need your Jesus".

A week later, she was found dead in her apartment .

Bon Scott (Singer)

The ex-vocalist of the AC/DC. On one of his 1979 songs he sang:
"Don't stop me, I'm going down all the way, down the highway to hell".

On the 19th of February 1980, Bon Scott was found dead, he had been choked by his own vomit .

Campinas (IN 2005)

In Campinas , Brazil a group of friends, drunk, went to pick up a friend, The mother accompanied her to the car and was so worried about the drunkenness of her friends and she said to the daughter holding her hand, who was already seated in the car:

"My Daughter, Go With God And May He Protect You."

She responded: "Only If He (God) Travels in The Trunk, Cause Inside Here It's Already Full "

Hours later, news came by that they had been involved in a fatal accident, everyone had died,
the car could not be recognized what type of car it had been, but surprisingly, the trunk was intact.

The police said there was no way the trunk could have remained intact. To their surprise, inside the trunk was a crate of eggs, none were broken .

Christine Hewitt (Jamaican Journalist and entertainer)

Said the Bible (Word of God) was the worst book ever written.

In June 2006 she was found burnt beyond recognition in her motor vehicle .

Many more important people have forgotten that there is no other name that was given so much authority as the name of Jesus.

Many have died, but only Jesus died and rose again, and he is still alive (1 Corinthians 15:20) .
