What more can I say?

I still don't know how to put together my thoughts. Something is happening inside me and I can't explain it (In a good way, I guess) but then.

2014 had toooo manyyy things going on. I am not one of the school of thought that believes that everything will change because the date is changing, however I believe in a God that is not bound by time or doesn't work according to the dictates of my calendar and in him I trust.

I have been 'detached' from my blog alot this year and frankly I do not have any explanation and really, only God can turn things around and I trust him to do so.

In the light of the end of the year. I am very grateful for this year, God really did above all i expected and didn't expect.

Thank you for coming over here when you have the chance and I don't take it for granted at all. For this reason I knell before the father from whom every family in heaven and on the earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his spirit in your inner being. So that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith and I pray that you being rooted and established in love mayh ave power together with the Lords holy people, to grasp how wide  and long and high and deep is the Love of Christ and to know this love that surpasses knowledge that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. 

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to the power that is at work within us. to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations forever and ever! Amen.

Have a spendid 2015!!

Why is it hard to follow Jesus - @josepheparker

What does it really mean to follow Jesus?
I ask this question to myself almost every time I tend to either find my spirituality in or out of sync with Him. When I’m dancing in tune with the music I sense heaven is playing, there is always a sense of wonder: How do I sustain this? How do I make this last forever? The music almost always stops when I’m suspended in mid-air trying to perform a new “spiritual dance trick.” In my weak state, in my disappointment in the inability to preserve these halo-moments, I stand next to the holiness of God in light of the Scriptures and I break down, literally; weeping on the floor, crying “More!”
At the other end of the spectrum, I find myself doing more of the things I would rather not do; the partaking of my sinful desires and the grand scheme of covering it all up in one giant magical swoosh. These cravings inevitably give me a chance to pause and ponder: Why am I doing this? Why am I enjoying this? I claim to be a Christian. I shout “Lord, Lord!” but I do not do what He says (Luke 6:46.) Sin exposes my true desires and wants and cravings.
Sin is selfish.
It is a “me-first” mentality.
I am in a one-sided relationship with Jesus.
I do what I want, when I want it, and how I want it. Yet, I claim to follow Jesus. But is this what it really means to follow Jesus?
I did not set out to write this post series (in fact, as I write these very words, I doubt if this “book” will ever see the light of the day), but as I wake up every morning, there is a tug within that I can never seem to ignore. Maybe I am scared that I would reveal too much of my sins to the world and I want to do everything in my power to hide them for this is one thing I seem to be good at: hiding my sins. But like cancer, it spreads and immobilises me. Something happened to me when I met Jesus. An inexplicable love had scarred and smeared my heart with a sizzling hot fiery dagger and it has never really remained the same with me. Yet, I still go back to the very things Jesus came to conquer once and for all for me, and for you dear reader.
No matter where you are in your life,
whether you know Jesus or not,
whether you are religious or irreligious,
whether you believe or not,
there is an open door hinged at the end of a very dark room that seems to say, “Come.”
We agree that the church ought to be the followers of Jesus, but that doesn’t mean that we are all in agreement with that. There is so much disagreement in the church today about what it really means to be a follower of Jesus. And it is a really simple concept. Jesus says,“Follow me.”That’s the first thing He says to His disciples: “Follow me and I will make you fishers of men” (Matt. 4:19). And that’s also the last thing he implies to them: “Go and make disciples of all nations…” (Matt. 28:19). He was telling them to go out and make these other followers of Him and “baptise them and teach them to obey everything I have commanded you.”
Now why doesn’t this command work in every area of our lives?
Imagine if you told your son:
“Go clean your room.”
And then a few moments later he comes to you and says,
“Hey dad, I can memorise what you had commanded me. You said ‘Go clean your room.’”
Or he says something along this line,
“Hey dad, I can say ‘Go clean your room in Greek. Listen…’”
Or he tells you how he would gather his friends every week and they were going to do a study on what it would look like if he actually cleaned his room. Now, as a parent, you know that none of those scenarios are going to fly with you. The boy should know better, right? He should buckle up and go clean his room.
Jesus was as black and white as He could get when He gave us the commands of “Follow me” and “Go and make disciples.” He would look at people and say “Why do you call me Lord, when you don’t do what I say?”(Luke 4:46). Why would you call someone your Master and not listen to Him? And He says in Matt. 7:21, “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that does the will of my father who is in heaven.”
In John chapter 6, Jesus said some really difficult words, and this was in front of thousands of people, and when He’s done teaching, everyone leaves except for twelve men. Everyone leaves going, “Arggh, this is some hard teaching, I cannot take that message, I cannot stomach that.” And Jesus looks at the twelve who were left and He asks them a very simple question, “You guys want to leave also?” And then Peter’s reply was very profound and yet simple: “Where are we going to go? You have the keys to eternal life. I know your message is hard, but where are we going to go?”
You think you’re out for this life that is so difficult, then you realise that there is blessing and you have more peace in taking this hard road than going with this wide road that everyone else is going on. And Jesus is at this door, and He says,
“Just take this. Follow me.”
And then you learn that all of the things He is telling you to let go of and walk away from are the things that were going to destroy you anyway.

More truths about Tithe @kennykore

Start here to get some perspective

The Bible asks us to rightly divide the word of truth, and take care so that we aren't tossed by every wind of doctrine.
It asks us to prove all truths
Search/Test all spirits

And warned us of false prophets, and ANOTHER GOSPEL.
How do you guide your heart if you don't search the scriptures like the Bereans who challenged even Paul in his teachings and went to search for themselves if what he taught was True or false, for which Paul gave them his approval.
Why does feathers quickly get ruffled this days?
Why are we so impatient with anything that isn't consistent with our theology, and studying to show ourselves approved is tantamount to opening cans of worms?
Is it that we've become infallible? If Peter could make a mistake, If Paul could make a mistake, can't we too?
Aren't we after all men of like passions with weaknesses and faults?
Didn't scripture say we should earnestly contend for the faith that was entrusted to us?
Where do we get the idea that a minister is only answerable to GOD, hence his word is final?
Does anyone have copyright on the truth?
Didn't the scripture say we know in part and understand in part, and to wait for a future day when perfection would swallow up imperfection?
So why the offence, and the high handedness amongst us?
Why do people act like they're already made perfect in knowledge and understanding?
Why do most elders act like they have already attained, and there is no more pressing on to higher calling to be done?
How come the Elders despise the truth because it's on the lips of youth?
Didn't the bible say," in the mouth of babe's and infants HE has perfected HIS praise?
What is the biblical precedence for the self righteouso and self aggrandisement at the highest echelon of our brethrenhood?
Should we love 'unity' more than we love Jesus?
Should we in a cult like way protect a pseudo peace of a rebellious generation more than we preserve the truth that has been entrusted to us?
It breaks my heart how people rush to defend their ideas about issues like Tithe (considering it a sensitive issue),
But the same people would find humour in a comedian degrading the Precious Name of Jesus, or ridiculing the Word of GOD, right in the venue we call store house/the house of GOD (possibly considering that an issue grace covers).
It is dubious how grace covers almost all other sins (falling short), except the 'sin' of none tithing.
Only GOD indeed can be GOD.

More truth about tithe @kennykore

Start here for some perspective...

Do you know that Abraham did not tithe his own riches?
He tithed 10% out of the spoils of war to Melchizedek.
Do you know that Abraham returned 90% of this spoils of war to the king of Sodom, after tithing 10% to Melchizedek the king of Salem?
Do you also know that Abraham didn't think those spoils of war belonged to him?
Because he told the king of Sodom, "... I will accept NOTHING BELONGING TO YOU, not even a thread or the strap of a sandal, so that you will never be able to say, 'I made Abram rich.'
Abraham thought those spoils belonged to the king of Sodom.
Do you know that Abraham was never commanded by GOD to give to the king of Salem, Melchizedek? (It was by choice).
Do you know that Abraham did not become rich after tithing to Melchizedek?
He was already a wealthy man, with slaves etc
Do you know that Abraham didn't tithe to Melchizedek again after that one and only time?
Do you know that if Christians today are tithing according to Abraham, they wouldn't tithe only 10%, they would tithe 100%?
Do you know the Apostles never taught tithe; they taught GIVING willingly or cheerfully.
Giving out of a response to NEED.
Giving out of love?
Giving out of faith?
Do you know that the ways the Apostles raised money in the pioneering church was well documented in the book of Acts... ?
And it wasn't tithe.
Do you know that the Apostles never payed tithe and never collected tithes ?
To pay tithe would mean a return to the Law; to receive tithe would mean you're a Levite?
Do you know the Bible doesn't support the modern believe that it's not our business what our 'MOG's' do?
"Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.-Matt. 7:15.
Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, BUT TEST THE SPIRITS to see whether they are from GOD, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
Do you know that Paul called out erring brethren by name, publicly?
Do you know that according to 1 Peter 2:9 WE ARE ALL PRIESTS?
"But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God's special possession, that you may declare the praises of HIM who called you out of darkness into HIS wonderful light.
Do you know that the churches priesthood is not in the order of Levi?
Jesus our High Priest is the Lion of the tribe of Judah, we are all priest according to His order.
Do we take GOD seriously when HE (GOD) said HE no longer dwells in Temples made with bricks and stones, that HE dwells in our human bodies?
Is our body the Temple of the Living GOD, or was Paul joking when he said GOD now lives inside of us?
So if the store house is the Temple of GOD, could the store house be human bodies, since that's where GOD dwells now, if GOD is to be taken seriously that is?
Jesus in Matt.25:40 "Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine (Temples of GOD), you did for Me.'
Jesus replied, “believe Me, a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem. 22 You Samaritans worship what you do not know; we worship what we do know, for salvation is from the Jews. 23 Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the FATHER in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the FATHER seeks. 24 GOD is SPIRIT, and HIS worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.”
Are those cathedrals, event halls, hotel venues etc bricks and stones Spirit and truth?
No, True worshippers worship (anywhere. Matt.18:20). The key thing is HOW, (in Spirit and Truth).
The venue of church is you.

Truth about Tithe @kennykore

Continued from the last post (Please read for better perspective)


They maintain that only Levites have the right to receive tithe of the people.
1.Since their Temple was destroyed by the Romans.

2. No ordained Temple Levite or Priest.
The major factor in fulfilling the laws of tithing does not exist.
*So Jews today have synagogues, and a rabbinic order.
*Many of today's Jewish rabbis are not Levites.
*They use other methods to secure adequate funds with which to operate their religious organizations.
While many Christian ministers today teach that Christians may be in danger of missing salvation itself if they do not pay tithe to the church, Jewish rabbis know that it is biblically improper (actually, it is a blatant disobedience to the laws of the Bible) for anyone to pay or to receive the biblical tithe today. And any minister or ecclesiastical leader who uses the biblical tithe (or any one who pays to a minister the biblical tithe) is a sinner in the eyes of GOD.
Almost all denominations of Christianity have taken portions of the Mosaic Covenant,"Christened them," and added them to the New Covenant. Without being aware of it, this has made most Christians guilty of the whole Mosaic Law, which says TO OFFEND IN ONE IS TO OFFEND IN ALL.-James 2:10.
Mark 2:21-22;“No one sews a patch of unshrunk cloth on an old garment. Otherwise, the new piece will pull away from the old, making the tear worse.
And no one pours new wine into old wineskins. Otherwise, the wine will burst the skins, and both the wine and the wineskins will be ruined.
No, they pour new wine into new wineskins.”

Are you robbing God? or Yourself?

Hello People,

I have followed Kenny kore on facebook for a good part of this year and listened to him a couple of times as well, he posts short messages almost everyday and I regularly share them but this time I kinda want it to have more reach because of this particular message. Its just amazing because its in-line with what I have been learning in Church over the last week. I have broken down the messages into 4 parts which will run over this week. 

Open your heart to learn and study the Word. God bless you!! 


I was not even a teenager when I heard a testimony about how a brother got a miracle gift of a tear rubber car because of his faithfulness to GOD.
I promised myself, and GOD that I would do the same thing, for the same result.
After several years of making that commitment, I still haven't gotten a car I didn't pay for, rather GOD had me give out my first, hard earned, second hand car.

How‬ did I get from serving GOD because I wanted a car, to the point where I served GOD by giving a car?
Romans 5:5,"And hope maketh not ashamed; because the LOVE OF GOD IS SHED ABROAD IN OUR HEARTS by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us."
I didn't give out my car out of abundance of money or because I had several cars;
I didn't give the car because I was pestered, cajoled, manipulated, or bullied to;
I gave the car because I felt compelled by the Holy Spirit to.
It was tough to obey, but I did, and I know that even the ability to obey is a gift from GOD, so I have nothing to boast of.
That car was my 'widows mite'.
Luke 21:1-4,"And He looked up and saw the rich putting their gifts into the treasury, and He saw also a certain poor widow putting in two mites.
So He said, “Truly I say to you THAT THIS POOR WIDOW HAS PUT IN MORE THAN ALL; for all these out of their abundance have put in offerings for GOD, but she out of her poverty PUT IN ALL THE LIVELIHOOD THAT SHE HAD.”

So‬ somebody asked me if I pay tithe; my 10%.
I answer now by saying NO, I REFUSE TO GIVE GOD 10%, WHEN GOD GAVE ME HIS 100%.
I have given my life to Christ, and that includes my money. ALL OF IT!!!
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith--and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of GOD, not by works, so that no one can boast.-Ephesians 2:8-9.
A more penetrating study of the Old Testa­ment laws would reveal that NO CHURCH TODAY IS REALLY TITHING in the stoic sense of the word.
The book of Malachai was originally written to Jews and Levites who practiced three (3) types of tithing.
Hence when GOD said in Malachai 3:8,"Will a mere mortal rob GOD? Yet you rob me. "But you ask, 'How are we robbing YOU?' "In TITHES AND OFFERINGS.
Please note the PLURALITY of those words; Tithes and offerings.
The 3 types of tithes:
1. The tithe for the Levites.-Num. 18: 21, 24.
2. The tithe for the feasts/festival.-Deut.14:22-27.
3. The tithe for the poor.-Deut. 14:28, 29.
If‬ we practice one out of three tithes, have we stopped robbing GOD??? (sela).
‪‎Why‬ is the tithe for the Levites a MUST and the tithe for the poor is no longer MANDATORY in the same order???
*Proverbs 19:17," If you help the poor, you are lending to the LORD--and HE will repay you!
*Matthew 25:40," "The King will reply, 'Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for Me.'
The danger of playing 'selective' with the Laws of GOD couldn't be stated clearer than in James 2:10;

‪Wrong‬ belief is unbelief

I found a secret that saves

I saw the book in a corner as I was set to leave home after a long wedding weekend. It wasn't the green cover or petit-ness of the book that made me pick up or the fact that it was the same Author that wrote 'Prayer of Jabez' another book that rocked my world... I don't believe in coindicences and it is obvious that God did want me to read it at this particular point in time. 

And I am sooooo grateful for that. 

I started the book immediately in the car on my way back to my base and Initially I was just facinated at the retell of 

John 15 when Jesus was talking about the vine and us as the branches. Oh! the name of the book is 'Secrets of the vine' by Bruce Wilkinson its the second part to 'Prayer of Jabez' 

It's a book I recommend for anyone and it basically has every season of your christian walk. Everyone wondering why? Everyone in a dark place, you'd definitely find yourself in one of the categories of branches that was mentioned. 

The one that mostly stood out for me was 'Abiding' the state of Abiding in God. The frustration of having a stale walk with God and the dissatisfaction that also comes with it. The writer had a similar experience and the truth dawned on him

''God didn't want me to do more for him. He wanted me to be more with him" 

and this was my defining moment, we do so much for God that we forget to be more with him. I am forgetting to be more with him and this was a great reminder to turn things around and not lose sight of what is important. 

In that moment, there was hope and I know that this is the way out of this rut, going back to being with him as against running around for him. 

I also encourage you to look through and if you're going through something similar just remember that God loves you and more than ever HE wants to fellowship with you. He is bidding you 'come' 

Abide in Jesus...

If you find the book, please do get it or just look for it!!! It's worth every bit of it. 

Abide in Jesus...

John 15 1-5 “I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes[a] so that it will be even more fruitful. You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.
“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing
