For four gruelling days of mental discomfort, the family of the deceased Lazarus continued to ask, “Why us; where is Jesus, the supposedly Friend of our dear brother?” Questions that refused to supply some meaningful answers. God must do things in style. When He eventually showed up –God always shows up to people of faith—, Jesus told them what they never knew of Him, “I am the resurrection, and the life.” Verse 40 reads, “Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?” The Author of soteriology took them back to the day of old, the day when as the Visitant He ask of Abraham’s understanding, "Is any thing too hard for the LORD" [Genesis 18:14]?Read More


The king had changed their Jewish names, which reflected the holy name of Jehovah. Hananiah was changed to Shadrach, which means ‘the servant of Aku (moon god); Mishael was given the foreign name of Meshach which has a probability of being a name in honour of the sun god. Azariah was named Abednego (servant of Nego, Nebo or Ishtar i.e. "the morning star" and "the perfect light" to Babylonian idolatry). They refused to hoist the infamous flag of their idolatrous tags. They stuck with Jehovah. Did the Lord God try to help them by making Nebuchadnezzar change his mind? Faith was put on trial. God Himself showed up among His children of faith. Read More


Even though the judgment of Eli, the high priest, was garbed in atrocity of its pronouncement, it would not vitiate Hannah's potential faith in the God of Israel. Her faith had engendered in her the humility of a good Christian, raising her to the enablement which held back her tongue from lashing at the stupidity of God's servant. Thankfully, the emergent alloy of faith and humility from this woman of great fortitude saved Eli from absolute irresponsibility. An 'ascension' (for that is the English definition of the Hebraic Eli) to the celestial assizes had to be made available to Hannah's petition. The same Eli who had wrongfully accused her of an unladylike debauchery must change the lyrics to, "Go in peace." Pronounced on her is 'peace', a Hebraic shâlôm (shaw-lome') which means so many things: 'completeness, soundness, welfare, peace;Read More


The word ‘spoken’ in the first verse is dâbar (daw-bar'): ‘to arrange; used figuratively (of words) to speak; speech, word, speaking, thing.’ It is very important to note that the words ‘any thing’ of Genesis 18:14 and ‘spoken’ of Genesis 21:1 mean the same thing. Our business is to look into the Scriptures; get a word that answers our predicament; bind securely our faith to it; and God has just given you the desire of your heart. Forsooth, delay is not denial! Be wise not to drop your guard of faith. Can you afford to disappoint the LORD God? Selah!Read More


Thinking that delay is denial, the scripturally unschooled and the one who runs into a dearth of God’s words of His promises lose all hopes, having gulped the satanic laden motivational calumny, as one downs huge draughts of spirited brew, the victim is ushered into the sottish inebriation of the Devil’s gulag. This is Lucifer’s bourne: for in this state suicidal attempts and perfections have continued to drown mankind. If delay is tantamount to denial there definitely would not exist in Scripture which says, "For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning" [Psalm 30:5].
