Introducing Panpsychist Paul!

Image
Like I stated in the previous posts about temperament, no one can solely exhibit a single temperament, there must be a fusion of at least one other temperament.

Panpsychist Paul had a blend of all four temperament (Sanguine, Choleric, Melancholy, Phlegmatic)  but he possessed a predominant temperament which made him Outstanding.

Meet Choleric Paul;
      He was the peoples' man. Notice their eyes fixed on him?

It will interest you to know that Saul's (now Paul) conversion and change of name was altered but his temperament wasn't tampered with. The new Paul disciplined himself greatly and worked on the weaknesses that accompanied his temperament status. And as evidenced, he emerged a Victor.

As a Choleric;
* Paul was a Life Coach.
{Acts 20:19-21} "I didn't skimp or trim in any way. Every truth and encouragement that could have made a difference to you, you got. I taught you in the public and I taught you in your homes, urging Jews and Greeks alike to a radical lif…

I had a nudge in my spirit to create a basis for the purpose of better understanding and benefit of those "who are yet to identify with why they act the way they do" before I kick-start the season.

Why You Act The Way You Do

Image
You can only tell who you are when you have become conscious of why you act the way you do

Why do you act the way you do? Does the above post title remind you of something you've heard of or read up somewhere? You're well learned. I give it to you!

Almost everything inspires me. lol, deal with it. *smiling from cheek to cheek

The book "Why You Act The Way You Do" by Tim Lahaye is entirely mind blowing. I advise you to get the book ASAP! to unravel hidden truths about your composition which will help you actualize your full potentials.

                           What my own copy looks like... I advise you get yours! *Winks

If you are on the journey of self discovery, the above book should be your starter pack.

Like I earlier stated, I was inspired to do something really exciting after having read the genius book.

There is a strong difference between Temperament, Personality and Character.

-Temperament can be defined as a human or animal's nature especially as it …

Dream Map

Image
A dream is a series of thoughts, images and sensations occurring in a person's mind  during sleep.

A map is a diagrammatic representation of an area of land or sea showing physical features, cities, roads, etc.

Therefore, A Dream Map is a diagrammatic representation of an area of land or sea in a series of thoughts, images and sensations which occurs in a person's mind during sleep. A dream map is the clearest form of revelation from God. It comes handy to his faithful whom He assigns on a mission.

St. Paul is today's Special Character. He was given a dream map on a platter. Read on...

Paul visited the city of  Derbe, afterwards moved on to Lystra where he found Timothy. He moved on to Phrygia and then on through the region of Galatia. They had their plan of returning to the west, but the Holy Spirit blocked that route. They tried to go north, and the Holy Spirit repeated its antics (of blocking).

That night, Paul had a dream. The dream was an extra-ordinary kind of dream…

Dream Interpreter Urgently Needed!

Image
I must begin by saying that I'm not a Joseph nor a Josephine. I fall in the category of people who don't remember their dreams and desperately pray to God for a one. But when I dream and able to remember it, it always has a significance.

Few weeks before I lost my mum, I had a dream, in that dream, I saw an old man lifting a body that seemed like my mums'. The old man exchanged her name with another name. The dream was a complicated one. I woke up thinking about it all day and there was no credible interpreter to confide in. I automatically interpreted by myself (based on the level of my understanding) and claimed my Mum life was exchanged with another, therefore, she wasn't going to die like the doctor had ascertained. Well, after her demise, the interpretation became clearer to me as I continually pondered. I figured out that "that man" was lifting her to eternal glory and changing her earthly name to a heavenly name.

Two days back,  August 24, 2016. I wok…

When Did You Become A Christian?

Image
Make that decision today...
The word Christian took its roots from the Greek word 'Christianos' which means ''followers of Christ.'' Christ (Christos in Greek), means "Anointed one."

The English dictionary described a Christian as one who who relates to or professes Christianity or its teaching.

Well, professing Christianity or its teaching isn't enough. You must learn to be a loyal follower by adhering to the instructions given and learning its principles. To become a Christian, you must first be a follower of Christ.

A follower is a one who moves behind or travels behind someone or something.

You've ever thought you became a Christian the moment you were born or because of the family you were raised in? You lied. The family, the church and other agents of acquiring knowledge about Christianity are just there to set perspectives. Becoming a bonafide Christian entails that one must maintain a personal relationship with God, unravel the hidde…

Thoroughly Good

Image
You are nowhere near good until you are being described as "thoroughly good."

Cornelius of Caesarea is one man to look up to. He was a man of good principle. He was virtuous. He brisked with invigorating personality. He was wealthy man (riches didn't distract him) who had servants and devout soldiers at his beck and call. Above all, He was brought to God's altar by his deeds.

The man named Cornelius was different from the other Jews.

Interestingly, God put Peter in his life to guide him in the path of righteousness, tutor him on more Biblical insights and in turn be a blessing and a helper to Peter's ministry.

Acts 10:1-3 "There was a man named Cornelius who lived in Caesarea, captain of the Italian Guard stationed there. He was a thoroughly good man. He had led everyone in his house to live worshipfully before God, was always helping people in need, and had the habit of prayer. One day about three o'clock in the afternoon he had a vision. An angel of G…

What Length Can You Go For A "Friend" ?

Image
"A Friend" is an individual who can be tolerated. These set of people fill in the gap while in the search the real deal. {Mathew 7:7 "Seek and you shall find.}

On the other hand, A FRIEND is that individual who loves more than a biological brother, they are there in times of adversaries and in times of joyful moments. These set of people will never talk ill at your back, they'll defend you to the last. (They are very hard to come by).

*I'm sure most of you can relate with the above meanings of  "A Friend" and "A FRIEND" respectively.

Well, whether they are being tagged A Friend or A FRIEND, they remain relevant in our lives and constitute a portion of our livelihood.

The Big Question.... To What Length Can You Go For A Friend?

Here is a "not so comprehensive" list of the length I can go for A Friend or A FRIEND;

Personally, I've not being lucky walking down the lane of genuine and lasting friendship. But when the word "fri…

Hated By The World?

Image
Amidst the hate, stand firm!

You've ever sacrificed so much for a particular sect and it backfires with wads of different agonizing backlash? You've ever cared and loved unconditionally, yet it went unnoticed and was accompanied with torture? You've ever been betrayed by those you relied on the most? You've ever been made the topic of a ridiculed discussion with the aim of ripping and denting your image? You've ever tried to correct a wrong and they hate you even more for trying to effect a change? Relax, you are not alone! Jesus passed through the entire phases of hate (conscious and subconscious).

Anchor Scripture: John 15:18
"If you find that the godless world is hating you, remember it got its start hating me. If you lived on the world's terms, the world would love you as one of its own. But since I've picked you to live on God's term and no longer on the world's terms, the world is going to hate you."

Back in the days,…

Who Wrote The Book Of John?

Image
On the 15th day of every month, something special happens to me. Its either a miracle happens, a new revelation unravels, or something really exciting springs up.

At exactly 8:30 pm, August 15th 2016, something divinely beautiful transpired. I had prayed for my "sign" earlier in the day and still anticipated graciously.

How It got Started
I had just finished studying the 14th Chapter of the book of John and was almost concluding that John was a defensive writer who didn't hint about how he doubted Jesus being the Messiah while in prison.

Few minutes later, I had a nudge to kindly sit and meditate on the book of John. Loe and Behold! the Holy Spirit revealed to me that there were actually two different Johns: John the baptist and John the apostle. *All my life, I grew up thinking there was only one John!

After trying to put one and two together based on the similar account of  the synoptic gospel writers; Mathew, Mark and Luke, I confirmed the assertion.

Immediately, I de…

LOVE (Part II)

Image
If He loves you, You'll know!

It's okay to love Him, but when He loves you, "fogerrit!" You are on a whole different level of iMax.

How well does He love you? Can He go the extra-mile of weeping on your behalf or "snitching" (confiding) in you? Take a deep breath and examine if He truly loves you in a different kind of way.

*Peep John Chapter 11 for the rundown of how Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead and what transpired before and after the event.

Interestingly, John 11:35 categorically states that Jesus wept over the death of Lazarus. Reason was; He loved Lazarus too much!

Below are some proofs to back up the above statement of how Jesus loved Lazarus.

-John 11:3 "So his sisters sent word to Jesus, Master, the one you love so very much is sick."

-John 11:5 "Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus

Moving on to the special case of John the Apostle a.k.a "John the beloved" who bragged about the fact that Jesus loved him…

LOVE

Image
True, there is a thin line between love and hate. Oh well! That thin line is called Knowledge. Hatred emerges from knowledge, Love emerges or is continually sustained by knowledge.

How well do you know that spouse, relative or bosom friend? Some people hate for no just cause, others love with no concrete reason attached. Which category do you fall under? You may have to engage in marathon brainstorming or meditation if need be to get it right this last time.

Interestingly, bigotry is related to ignorance. *That's a topic for another day.

In truth, knowledge takes a lot of time to acquire, reason why the level of divorce, failed relationships and its like are on the upsurge. On the other hand, conflict resolution between divorcees, family and friends are obtainable through knowledge.

The knowledge of a spouse is impossible to know during honeymoon weeks or weekend getaways.

Also, Some people hate God as a result of poor knowledge or ignorance, others claim to love Him because they…

You Are Only A Steward

Image
Hello guys!

Trust your Fabulous Saturday rest is going on amazingly good as supposed. *winks

Just to remind you (us) that no matter our bourgeoisie or proletariat status, we are only stewards and would be asked for a detailed account of how well we used our talents and the resources around us to do exploits.

Make a difference, dare to be different and act differently, because at the end, it's about how well we lived and the good we impacted.

Have a Thrilling Weekend.

Jesus Recommended Suicide?

Image
Yes, He did. But to a particular group of people though.

These category of people are called "agent of darkness." They go about tempting people and luring them into sin.

Well, "Bros J" has a message to those who are guilty of such acts: 'Wear a millstone necklace and take a swim in the deep blue sea.' He wants those involved to die by drowning: Drowning in an epic way.

Dear Tempters and Temptresses a.k.a babes' le hot and bobos' le cold a.k.a dressers to kill, stay off inciting the innocent into sin with your demonic antics. It's okay to be fashionable but don't go the extra mile of "dressing to kill" anybody. You'll get burnt in the process.

Refrain from such distasteful attitude because the supposed "light" consequence is a death penalty. The just judge, Jesus, clearly outlined the sentence. *No one knows what the actual sentence which is supposedly worse than suicide would look like.

Anchor Scripture: Luke 17:1-2

Why Are You Living?

Image
Until you discover your life's purpose, living is only a waste of time and oxygen.

In the year 2013, I was yet to discover myself and my life's assignment. Oh yes! I was an ambitious young lady whose only goal in life was to make money and just life to its fullest (that happily ever after kind of living with Fancy cloths, Good shoes, Legendary automobile (owning a private jet wasn't a bad idea too), "Porsche" hair extensions, Skin pamper, World tour with price charming by the right hand side). *Lol, I'm a heavy dreamer, don't hate. hahaha... I could take up any decent job, as long as it brought in money and more money, even though the jobs I was getting at the time was an oxymoron. *I love my country Nigeria. hahaha.

*But hey, baby girl detested sitting idle at home and picked up those jobs while hoping for the best to come. *(I craved to be an On Air Personality and become a Brand Ambassador so badly sha. lool. Dunno why I loved it entirely flashy …

You Can Take It With You

Do know wealth acquired on earth can be taken up into Heaven? How is this possible? Find out as you read on. *winks

For this service to be activated, a conversion must be occur. This conversion is called exchange.

On a trip to a foreign country, a conversion of currency at hand must occur, else, it cannot be used as a medium of exchange in the supposed new country. For instance, one travelling to Nigeria from the United Kingdom must first convert Pounds Sterling to Naira before it can be used in Nigeria.

Same process is applicable in the realm beyond. Physical wealth can be exchanged with spiritual wealth. This is possible when you give to God's people (creation) on earth. By so doing, souls helped on earth serve as intercessors on your behalf in Heaven.

Anchor Scripture: Luke 16: 9
"I tell you, use worldly wealth to make friends for yourself, so that when it is gone, they will welcome you into eternal dwellings."

Using worldly wealth to attract people to one's self…

That Helper May Be Your Helper

Image
(Definition one) of a helper: A subordinate e.g A house keeper, An employee, A messenger.

(Definition two) of a helper: A temporal aid or assistant. This category of "helper" may not be subordinates. They only play a role by acting as destiny helpers or support system to accomplish a task.

Now, merging the two definitions of who helpers are to connect with the title of today's post, "that subordinate helper may be your destiny helper.

Anchor Scripture: 2 kings 5:2-4
"It so happened that Aram, on one of it's raiding expedition against Israel, captured a young girl who became a maid to Naaman's wife. One day she said to her mistress, Oh! if only my master could meet the prophet of Samaria, he would be healed of his skin disease."

vs 14 "So he did it. He went and immersed himself in the Jordan seven times, following the orders of the Holy Man. His skin was healed; it was like the skin of a little baby. He was as good as new."

And She Was Overshadowed By The HolySpirit

Image
It will interest you to know that Mary wasn't the only woman overshadowed by the Holy Spirit. She was exceptional because she was the Mother of the Messiah.

Women allover the world who are involved with childbearing are been "overshadowed by the Holy Spirit" and share in Mary's grace.

How is this so? Just like God, women are involved in divinity which makes them "creators." A woman must first be overshadowed by the Holy Spirit in order to birth a new life into the world.

Luke 1:42b "Blessed is the fruit of thy womb." More so, the blessing of the womb extends to other creatures(Female animals). Motherhood equals divinity.

Notwithstanding, the men have a role in the creation story because only through a man's (male) help, a new life is being formed.

Ever wondered why some mothers lose their lives in the process during childbirth? "Physical birth or Creation" isn't an easy path to tread, never was (after the fall of Adam and Eve), …

The DIFFERENCE Between Pride and Bragging In The Lord

Image
Did you catch that? John Flavel gets it!

Pride means inordinate self esteem; an unreasonable conceit of one's own superiority in talents, beauty, wealth, rank etc., which manifests itself in lofty airs, distance, reserve and often contempt in the others.

To brag means to boast; to talk with excessive pride about what one has, can do, or has done. But hey! bragging In The Lord, is a different ball game entirely.

Bragging In The Lord entails acknowledging Him for the revelation, inspiration or goodies He has genuinely rested upon us. It is an indirect (exhilarating) way of returning back the praise(s) to Him and saying Thank You!

Findings: There is a strong relationship between pride and bragging.

But Bragging In The Lord exclude itself from the above hypothesis.

Don't be in a hurry to condemn whosoever brags in the Lord, read-in-between-the-lines. Only then will observe the (too much work) done behind the scene which the supposed "braggart" brought forth to the s…

It Couldn't Have Been Any Virgin!

Image
Some religious scholars believe in the school of thought that God randomly selected a virgin and the lot fell on Mary because of her chaste life. Well, at a point in my life, I agreed with those scholars. But hey! God is in the habit of revealing his word to ordinary people like me. *Winks(Permit me to brag in the Lord. He's aware that I love him too much).

Those scholars had a point but they missed it along the way. *I bet they didn't take a critical look at this portion of the Bible:
Mathew 1 narrates that Mary was betrothed to be married to Joseph before the angel of the Lord appeared to her. Interestingly, Joseph wasn't an ordinary man either, who ran out of luck, he was from the lineage of David!

Mary wasn't made the mother of Jesus by accident. Scripture also states in Jeremiah 1:5 as thus:
"Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you."

Also, Mathew 10:30 reads, "And even the very hairs of your head are a…

Wait Again! John Didn't Know Jesus Personally? I Taught They Were Relatives

Image
The Angel said to Mary in Luke 1:36 "And your cousin Elizabeth conceived of a son, old as she is? Everyone called her barren, and here she is six months pregnant! Nothing, you see, is impossible with God."
The above portion categorically tells us that Mary and Elizabeth were cousins.

Fast-rewind to one of the synoptic gospel writers Mathew.

Mathew 11:2-4 "John, meanwhile, had been locked up in prison. When he got wind of what Jesus was doing, he sent his own disciples to ask, "Are you the One we've been expecting, or are we still waiting? Jesus told them, Go back and tell John what's going on."

 Interestingly, it wasn't recorded that John got to set a glimpse at Jesus thereafter because he was imprisoned and eventually beheaded by Herod after Herodias' daughter's wish came to play which was masterminded by Herodias.

Now the question is why did John ask if Jesus was the Messiah? I taught he, John, personally baptized Jesus.
-Mathew 3:13-15 …

Sometimes, Leave God Alone!

Image
Yes, leave Him alone. He can't stand your bully ass. lol

If God were human, He would have passed on long ago. *You'll agree with me that the continuous list of problem in the world no be here.

Gen Chapter 1 gives an explicit rundown of how God created the universe and specifically gave man authority over every other creature. This mantle of leadership was vested on man before the fall of Adam.

After the fall of Adam, man was responsible for his welfare. This explains that God expects us to solve some light issues all by ourselves without being overly dramatic while asking for His aid.

For example; Earthly mothers and fathers are responsible for the well-being of their child, they kick-start the nurture phase right from the time of birth of the infant till the child becomes an adult, then, they step aside and allow them fend for themselves which continues the cycle of creation. This is how God operates. He is at the center of our daily activities and well-being. And be…

You Are A Robber

Image
A robber isn't only the individual who steals from others forcefully without remorse, but one who
doesn't acknowledge the giver of the beautiful gift he flaunts.

So to say, robbers are proud people and proud people are robbers.

Proud people are thieves, humble people are the "have it all." Humility entails meekness. If at any point in your life, you talk less of yourself to seek future praise, you are not humble.

Are you an excellent orator? A sensational singer? A terrific writer? A seasoned nurse? A gifted drummer? A detailed entrepreneur? An outstanding student? A master-piece architect? A genius? An enviable medical personnel? A passionate sailor? A captivating teacher? An undaunted ambassador of the Most High God who is most sorted for allover the world? And you have failed to acknowledge the giver (God), then you are a robber.

God doesn't call the qualified, He calls the called. God announces whosoever He calls. You can be called by God yet switch to the o…
