What Role Are You Playing As The Chosen?

May 24, 2020 1
 To the glory of God, I want to use this great opportunity to say "thank you" to everyone who have supported me by engaging with the acknowledgements that I share as the Lord puts in my heart. Without you I won't be writing nor talking, as you are very special to God.
 Today, the Lord had put it in my heart to share with us on what I title, "What role are you playing as the chosen?" Certainly, this isn't a question for me to answer, it's something we should ponder upon and decide for ourselves, to play our roles according to our post.
 Jesus according to the book of Luke chapter six from verse thirteen to sixteen, had twelve chosen disciples amongst many other called disciples. The difference was that these twelve were chosen, and that earned them a post each as apostles, which also had attachment of responsibilities. A significant person took my attention in verse sixteen, one who played a role that will be accepted as against the post of an apostle:
 "St. Luke 6:13 And when it was day, he called unto him his disciples: and of them he chose twelve, whom also he named apostles;"
 "St. Luke 6:16 And Judas the brother of James, and Judas Iscariot, which also was the traitor."
 Who Is A Traitor?
 In one word, a traitor is a deceiver, betrayer, revolter, to mention but a few. He or she is one who disregards their trusts and give their trusters to their enemies. He or she can as well be a contradictor or violator of the common interest of a community or his or her allegiance to a group.
 Amongst the twelve, Judas Iscariot became a traitor of Jesus Christ, though to the fulfilment of the prophecy, but couldn't it be someone else? It's a matter of choice.
 You are believed to be "...a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:" (1 Peter 2:9).
 The question is, "What Role Are You Playing As The Chosen?" Are you showing forth the glory of the one who called you out of darkness into light? Or are you playing a contradictory role to that which you have been called or chosen to? Judas Iscariot was called and chosen to be an apostle but ended up with a traitor's role.
 Beloved, consider your role as the chosen, is it advancing the ministry or is it breaking the rules of the ministry? When your role is breaking the rules, it means you are contradicting the goal or reasons of which you were chosen.
 "Take good advantage of every opportunity under your roof to play your roles according to the goals of the one who chose you, because you can't create a better role than the one established by God. It isn't God's will that any should perish, it's your choice, therefore, chose the God established role and play it with all diligence."~Joseph E Bassey 💐
 Take care and God bless you.

The Lord Is The Maker, Make Your Choice (Rich or Poor)

May 23, 2020 0
 Sometime ago, I felt bad that I was born into the family I was in; that was when we experienced hardship. Then, when I looked at the beautiful cars and my mates who were driven in them, I was so regretful and questioned God on why He put me where I was. Actually, it was so complicated that I wouldn't have attended to any acknowledgement to help change my thoughts on my life, but now I get to understand it better.

 Honestly, there's no sense in comparison because we aren't the same in everything and cannot be the same; that's the truth. All we should do is to thank God for who we are, if not; we will end up making a mess of our lives and God will repent of making us.



 Today, the Lord had put it in my heart to share a message that will basically encourage the discouraged, but I would love to say that:



 "Before you begin to say all you desire to say as a result of your condition, remember that someone else is passing through that condition without your knowledge. You didn't know because they didn't talk about it, but it must be told."



 Many people think everything must go smoothly and smoothly, but I'm sorry to tell you that even the road to heaven isn't smooth, to talk of your destination. If you want smooth always, then you may have to go to eternal sleep.

 I wasn't burn into a poor family, infact I counted myself as one of the luckiest but while we moved on, things dropped down. I was there, I can tell you that it took us all of a sudden; even as a little child, I was learning serious things about life. I can tell you that the best products often take the hard ways, if you aren't prepared for life, don't embark on it because you will meet situations that will break you down. Many started the journey but very few finished it, the question is "What of the rest?" They certainly didn't know what was coming.



 Life has a maker, life consist of the made. It has two ways to it: the right and the wrong, the good and the bad, the rich as the poor, and others. Where you fall is not your fault, but where you remain is your result.

 "The rich and poor meet together: the LORD is the maker of them all." (Proverbs 22:2).

 The Lord is the maker of both the rich and the poor, but He didn't make your choice, He made you to chose your way (rich or poor, good or bad and others), and He has everything stored for you to be rich because He wishes you the best, but you are left to choose the rest. Your choice determines the appearance of the your next chapter. What you become in your life is what you became in your mind; where you chose to allow it into your life.



 Many people complain and point hands at others, and blame God for their backgrounds, not knowing that their backgrounds cannot hold them behind if they deny it the chance. You have the power to make a choice and even the devil cannot change that, the problem is your doubts; that's what brings people's back, down to the ground.

 If you don't believe you can make it, you will never make it. The two (riches and poverty) are inside, but you must chose which one comes out and dominates in your life. It begins in your mind, that's where you fight the battles of the future. If you fail there, you fail here; that's why we need to build our minds with knowledge and knowing that these three (wisdom, understanding and knowledge) work together.

 Though the rich and poor meet together, what makes the difference is their mindsets; they don't think the same way, same goes to how they act. If your life is not looking favourable, change your thinking and your life will change. Think like the great that you are, don't demote yourself in your thoughts due to what you see because things really do change and change is a constant thing; it doesn't take man but God.

 "God made you, but the choice to be rich or poor is yours. Be careful, not all ways to wealth leads to heaven on Earth, most of them leads to hell after death." ~Joseph Edem Bassey 💐

 If you are rich, help the poor to be rich too. Everything is possible if you can believe God and follow His ways by living by His word. Never think that wealth is gotten sharply, true and sustainable is the wealth that is built. Think aright, o child of God.

 Remain blessed in the Lord our Maker. Peace be with you.

Diligence: A Quality For Successful Minds

May 21, 2020 0
  I will start by thanking God for life and wealth unseen. Father, you are glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders and miracles beyond imaginations of men; thank you Lord.

 Hello you reading this, I'm so excited to write to you again. I pray we meet someday to share orally and inspire each other through God's word. I remain grateful. I wouldn't stop but to continue sharing what the Lord puts in my heart, and I would continue with my personal inspirations to myself.

"What you value must be worth your virtue; don't start a good thing without finishing it. Believe me, this is one problem in our world that we must address personally."~Joseph Edem Bassey 💐

 I was actually going through my Bible to get a knowledge for the day and prepare for a write, but I stubbled on a scripture and I believe the Lord wants me to write on it, as well as learn from it.

 As an author and a writer, I have big dreams, infact, I'm one of those multi talented people you should know about. I conceived a vision for life which I acronymed as PCA and I have been following up bit by bit, but honestly, I have many setbacks.

 Apart from that, I have been able to publish my books as a self publisher under the ignorance of many, but still something isn't right. I feel it from the inside, something is missing; something important, and it has made my life a misery.

 Let me tell you something, "God has given you what you need, if you lost it, you need to search for it. Until you find it, don't stop searching." Some people just sit and wait for the thing to come but it will never come; it's around but you must search to find. You need to understand that there are certain things in life that won't come to you, instead you have to go to them.

 Moving a bit from that, I was missing the urge, I mean the interest; that thing that says, "you have to keep doing it!" I found out I wasn't devoted to my writing career even as a student, I didn't go to learn about it. I knew it's God's gift, but it won't work if I don't work. It's been a case and while I was going through the scriptures, God spoke to me saying:

 "Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men." (Proverbs 22:29).

 Wow... I know He was speaking to me because I have the dreams that will expose me to kings and great people like you, and I see how my dreams will die if I don't put on my diligence. Actually, "Diligence Is A Quality For Successful Minds."

 If you have a dream, you must devote your time and available resources to make that dream come true. For me, I thought I have exhausted all my resources, but now I see that knowledge is a resource that is still intact. You may be wondering why? Let me tell you, "It's because I have the source (God)." So, you need to step out and start working your way out, if you really want to be walking to your destination with your dreams actualized.

 Take the quality of diligence and do your duties for the sake of your destiny, and don't forget to hold on to God for resources. Give thanks 😊.

 Knowing very well that the journey to destiny has many stages, the more steps you take, the closer you get; I know that the diligent will definitely take more steps than the rest.

The Guide To Get Healing

April 02, 2020 0
The Guide To Get Healing

 I will start by saying that, "The most reliable access to the resource is directly from the source. Most times, the channels are unreliable." ~Joseph Bassey💐

 After I made the post on "A Good Name", someone amongst others on the social media (Facebook to be precise), commented that I should make a new post as soon as possible but I want to apologise to that person for not making a post as at then. The good news is that God has something to say to the world today, so you can help spread the word.

 Last month was the first month I spent hours on my news app, and the most news I came across were about ministers and their ministries; with regards to the current epidemic and the present situation in the world today. I read about many prophesies made by many prophets and pastors. I felt back, seeing how contradictory their prophesies were and how it becomes a competition between ministers and ministries, to which will be true or false.

 Beloved, many have failed and many more will fail. As long as God doesn't command it, it will not come to pass; no matter who says it. God alone has the final says and today He spoke to me by His spirit that, "I am the God that healeth thee" not that prophet or pastor.



 Exodus 15:26

 "And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee."



 The truth is that no man can heal, only God can heal us. Even doctors know that they treat and cure but God heals. All God needs from you is your faith not fear. Have faith and put it in God not man. God can use your pastor, prophet or anyone to heal you but He will not share His glory with anyone. If you don't give it to Him, you may remain in shame.

 Ministers should look onto God for healing.

 Members should look onto God for healing.

 The countries should look onto God for healing.

 The continents should look onto God for healing.

 The world at large should forfeit their gods and look onto God for healing.

Hebrews 12:2

 "Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God."

Hebrews 12:15

 "Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled."

 The need to come together in humility, not minding our ranks, positions, titles and affluence is important. We need to bring ourselves lower and seek God with a repented heart, that He may come and heal our land!

 God is the source that supplies all our needs including healing, let's go to Him now in prayers:

 Our Father in heaven, we are grateful for life and your love for mankind. We are grateful for all you have done, you are doing and will do for us.

 Father, we come as one people to ask for mercy over our sins, and healing upon our land. Please Lord, remember us and visit us. Heal us by the blood of the Lamb of God that was shed at the cross of Calvary. Purify us like gold and make us bold to declare your word over our lives.

 Father, please command healing over the land for the sake of the repented. Heal us oh Lord, for in you we trust, and we pray in Jesus name Amen.

 Sing this song with me:

 "You are the God, that healeth me. You are the God, my healer. You sent your word and you healed my disease.. You are the God, my healer.

 You are the God, that healeth us. You are the God, our healer. You sent your word, and you healed our diseases.. You are the God, our healer.

Psalms 107:20

 "He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions."

 "But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed." (Isaiah 53:5).

INFORMATION:

 Beloved, I'm working on a new book titled, "The Theory Of The Engrafted Word", scheduled for publication before the end of the month. If you wish to get a copy when it is published, feel free to drop your email and country. God bless you all.

Why You Should Go For A Good Name?

February 13, 2020 4
 I will start by saying that, “Money without value is worthless.”

Proverbs 22:1
“A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold.”

 Do you know the value your name carries? What are people saying about you? The content of your life is addressed with your name, what then do people take you for?

 It has been discovered that most people are extremely interested in making money and end up in ritual activities, stealing, kidnapping, robbery and many others. In these acts, their names are being painted for evil, which means that they have bad names.

 I had a report of a wealthy woman who maltreats her maid and the amazing thing was that, everyone who heard this with me; called her a wicked woman. That’s another bad name, but today we are looking at a good name.

A Good Name

 A good name is a name of honour. Qualify honour can’t be purchased with money, it is a reward for good works.

Ecclesiastes 7:1
A good name is better than precious ointment; and the day of death than the day of one’s birth.

 A modest, honest, loyal and loving person will not be addressed for evil, but will be honoured with a good name. I wonder at the so-called honourable who are unhonourable in their actions.

 All we need is a positive change and so the knowledge has come, “Money without value is worthless.” Your value is your name, what are you doing with your money? Are you afflicting others or making a good name for your self and society at large?

 Your worth is inside, use it to affect the outside positively. Make a good name, don’t store money with greed. Death is inevitable, please beware.

Do You Know What You Need? Please Share.

February 11, 2020 2
What Do You Need?
 A young man was asked, “What do you need?” And he said, “I need money.” Well, that was what he thought he needed. What about you, “what do you need?” That question is for you reading this article.

 Wants And Needs
 One of the major issues people have is their inabilities to differentiate their ‘wants’ from their ‘needs’. Someone may say, “It isn’t necessary” but it is very necessary mixing your need with your want will result to unsatisfied and unhappy living. Your want is not necessary but your need is, vitality of humanity is tagged to the need of humanity. Your want is temporal but your need is a fuel for your life's motion.
 There are certain things that grows to the level of need as we progress in life. Your want is not a matter but your need is. If you ask me what you and I need, I will say it’s knowledge. With that, you will know your needs and separate it from your wants.

Why You Need To Flee From Fornication

February 06, 2020 0
Flee From Fornication
 A story was told about a young man who went and had sexual intercourse with an harlot. In the process, the man of the harlot caught him, flogged him and sent him away half naked. When he got home, his father saw him and then inquired why he was almost naked.

 After he dressed up, he went to his father in the kitchen to explain all that happened, meanwhile his father was frying egg. His father become sobber after hearing from him but had it programmed in a peaceful way, to reveal the intent of it to his son.

 After a while in the kitchen, his son started perceiving some bad smell and said to his father, “What is smelling?” Then his father told him it was the egg. He had a mixture of a good egg and a bad one and the young man said, “Father, you have to dispose the egg because it is damaged?” But his father said, ” Let me try frying it, perhaps the bad smell will seize.

 After frying the egg, the smell continued and so the young man said to his father, “This egg is rotten, I won’t eat it, neither will you, we must dispose it right away?” Then his father said to him, “This is the same way anyone who joins himself with an harlot will be.”

 The young man heard that, he began weeping and saying, “So this is how I will be disposed, oh no..” And the father said to him, “Your case is a different one because Jesus Christ made a way out for you, all you need to do is to accept him into your life and He will forgive you and cleans you from every filtiness.” There, the young man surrendered to Jesus and his father prayed for him.

Flee Fornication
1 Corinthians 6:15
Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid.

1 Corinthians 6:16
What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh.

1 Corinthians 6:13
Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God shall destroy both it and them. Now the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body.

1 Corinthians 6:18
Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body. (This is the word of God).

 You are of God, not of the world and so you must keep youself for God. Say no to fornication, abstinence as often said, is the best option. Shon sexual immorality, especially amongst the youths.

Two Keys To Succeed In Life

February 05, 2020 0
Two Keys To Succeed In Life

 There are two keys among other keys that can help you succeed in life: Humility and Diligence. For you to make it in life, you must humble yourself and diligently serve your goals and duties, because the requirements for your success is your focus and there’s no force that aids success as focus.
  Proverbs 18:16 “A man’s gift maketh room for him, and bringeth him before great men.”
 Everyone has a gift to be great and it’s the gift that makes room for your greatness (success) but for you to be great, you must step out and stand. This can only be achieved by diligence.

 Proverbs 22:29 “Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men.”

 Diligence is the key factor to achieve success in life, but diligence is incomplete without humility. That’s why I pray, “God humble me beyond the humility of humanity.” For you to succeed, you must humble yourself to walk and work diligently in whatever area you find yourself. Don’t involve yourself in negative means to succeed, because you will not be a great controller but a device of demolition to the growth and development of the society.

But Why? Please Consider With Me.

January 19, 2020 0
 Have you ever been in any situation or experienced any occurrence that result in you asking the question, “But why?”

 Believe me, vertically everyone at one point or the other have asked such question or relative. Most times, it comes as a result of an unexpected and unpleasant situation or occurrence.

 The actual reason for this article is regarding the situation of most young children who are away from their parents. My recent conversation with my friends, over the absence of a beloved sister aided the reason for this writing. Why because, the content of our discussion brought up this question in my mind and I had to voice out saying, “But why?”

Someone may ask, “Why what?” I won’t exhitate to write out at least a reason for it.

 The present world is putting most young, fatherless, motherless or helpless children in uncomfortable and unconducive conditions, which has great effect on their lives.

 From the story of my beloved friend which was unravelled, added with my experience so far; I still live with the question of why most so called aunties treat their none biological children hardly and wrongly. Why is it that almost all the unpleasant treatments I get informed about is channelled to the women? Mind you beloved, we are about positive change and so we must address every negative activities we can and find a resolution to them.

 Please don’t feel bad over this article, but come to think of it; it’s about time that love runs through the veins of every woman because they are the carriers of children. The womb where the child is formed is in the woman and so the woman should be the #1 lover of all children as far as life is concerned.

 The child doesn’t have to come out of your womb for you to love him or her. Knowing that you carried or will carry a child should be a reason for you to treat all children with equal love.

 The man also isn’t excluded but this article is directed more to the women. God Almighty watches everyone and sees everything we do, He put that child in your care; even though he or she is not of your own womb. The question is, “Are you taking good care of that child?”

“Acts 10:34-35 Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:
But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him.”

Note: God is no respecter of persons. Who you are is not a reason for any unpleasantry of another. God will repay and reward every actions you take, better repent of any form of maltreatment on children because God is watching.

 What you do in secret that others don’t see, God See’s.
God is watching, He is watching!

“Proverbs 15:3
The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.”

 Be aware, GOD IS WATCHING!

Unity In The Union

January 15, 2020 0
 A current report entails that, “Students of a particular school are fighting themselves. The fight involves the use of arms and so far a student has been stabbed.”

 That was a recent happening in my recent ignorance and as at now, the school seem to be in an uncomfortable and unconducive condition. Imagine, how do you expect students to learn in an unconducive environment? Where fear had grasped many students especially the innocent ones, it becames a factor affecting teaching and learning in the school.

 My message right now is on Unity. The reason why I had to bring in this story is because of the state of it’s occurrence, where students had to fight amongst themselves.

 As far as I’m concerned, no student has the right to cause havoc in another school, then come to talk of his or her school. This is happening globally and needs to be curbed, because many students are not comfortable with it as well as it affects conducive teaching and learning.

 This occurrence often takes place in the primary, secondary and tertiary levels of education. The peoples involved are the ones who join to make up the society, so what do you think the society would look like?

 You may be murmuring why I am making mention of students, but don’t forget that your children are or passed through the school. Which means that they are or were students and their lives in school still influence most of them.

 The school is a union, meant to build the society with what it makes. What the school makes is you and I to be good citizens of the society, but in a situation where the school becomes a center of negativity, what do you expect the society to be?

 Most youths are into cultism and babaric activities which are harmful to the society, meanwhile they are the future leaders of the society and the future starts now. So what do you think they have to offer? Would they build or destroy even what others have built?

 This message is coming to you so that if you are found guilty in anyway, expectation says, “make a u-turn.” Think twice and eschew from those negative activities you have involved your self into.

UNITY IN THE UNION
 Every community, society, family or association is a union.

Unity is simply oneness. Oneness as the word implies is one, together and as a whole.

Unity in the Union is a state whereby peoples in a particular community, state, organization or society etc, live as one, together and as a whole. The scripture says;

Psalms 133:1
“Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!”

This means that living together in unity is a pleasant thing. Why then do people prefer unpleasantry to pleasantry?

For peace to reign they must be unity and for unity to be achieved, we must agree because two cannot walk together except they agree.

Ephesians 4:3
Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.

 In conclusion I will say that everyone has the responsibility to watch out for each other’s safety and well-being, as to promote and sustain peace and harmony.

 Don’t forget that your major role as a member of your union is to make sure that peace reigns and so you need to unite in agreement to the right and positive things.

Discover Man’s Major Duties

January 11, 2020 1
 Firstly, I want to thank God for taking us this far in life. You may not understand why your life is precious in the eyes of God, until you discover who you are and what is expected of you.

 You are God’s creature, created in His image and after His likeness.

 You are the commander and manager of all other creatures.

 You are an endowment of great authority and royalty.

 You are the ambassador and acting owner of all that God has created on the earth.

 The knowledge of who you are in God who created you, will expose you to the knowledge of what is expected of you.

 Since you are endowed with greatness, you are required to pass a great test; for you to be the greatest in your time.

 At this point, by God’s grace I want to share with us ‘the two major duties of man.’

  What Is Duty?
 Duty is a responsibility, a responsibility is a requirement. For you to do your duty/ responsibility, you must be responsible. No irresponsible man can perform his duties and no one will accept to be irresponsible. My question is, “Is everyone taking responsibilities?

  Man’s Duty
“Ecclesiastes 12:13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.”

 This sovereign scripture is a conclusion of all that everyone is required to do. Whether you are a religious man, a politician, a business man, a professor or whatever title you attain, you are still a man to God and you are required to Fear God and keep His Commandments. These are the two major duties of man and these two cannot do without each other, that’s why the scripture states it as, “the whole duty of man.”

 The word ‘whole’ is the sum of all that is required from man. All that is required from you and I, is to fear God and keep His Commandments. This commandments is the commandments of Love and it takes only those who Fear God, to keep His Commandments.

NOTE: It is our responsibility/duty to keep God’s commandments, because He hands it to us and we are responsible for it. Failure to keep God’s commandments of love will result in a great punishment of lost.

 Love profits, hatred produce lost.

 Be a lover and not the Cain of your generation.
