dummy

There is nothing as liberating than the light of the true gospel of Jesus love and forgiveness, it separate the ordinary Man/Woman from a life of defeat, hatred and bondage

The most up to date weapon in the arsenal of Satan are lie and fear, he uses lies upon lies to hold down those he has sneared that is they move out of his plans for them they will die, many could not live life to the full because of the fear of death (See Hebrews 2:15)

Myths

Before Christianity was brought to the continent of Africa, history have it that Idol worshiping was the order of the day, these God's were sought after for the supply of what is naturally impossible, from wealth, to power, favour and protection but unknowing it is not the way to a lasting joy

On the contrary God's stand about all these says thus; You must not bow down to their gods or serve them or follow their practices. Instead, you are to demolish them and smash their sacred stones to pieces - Exodus 20:5

Surprisingly, many are still feel indebted to the worshiping of the system that Jesus Christ came to take away, he took away all the unfair shedding of blood, sacrificing of the blood of animal and burnt offering and became the only way of truth (See John 14:6)

Despite the clarification that the Lord gave to us in his word that all power in heaven and on earth has been given unto Jesus (read Matthew 28:18), some believer still conciously or unconsciously seek solution from shrines , altars, or dead gods that are not the representative of God, the bible says we will know the truth and the truth shall set us free - John 8:32.

Lies

He was a murderer from the beginning. He has always hated the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, it is consistent with his character; for he is a liar and the father of lies - John 8:44

The deceit of the devil could cause one to disobey God's will if we are not careful, it may become difficult for a child of God to let go of the old ways that Jesus onces took away, John the baptist when he first saw Jesus, he refered to him as the lamb of God that takes away the sins of the world John 1:29, 1 John 3:5, our sin of rebellion towards God, hatred toward one-another, discrimination, deception, jealousy, envy, bearing false witness, pride, lust, unforgiveness, carnality, greed, may become difficult to live without out of the lies of the devil that living without them will mean that we are weak but that's not true.

of what importance is it that people around us refer to us a children of the most high but we are not living it genuinely, the expectation of Jesus is that our ways of life should advertise Christ those around us even without talking not by pretending to be gentle in acts but destructive in deeds, because there is nothing hidden under the Sun that will not be made known - Luke 8:17, we all hate mis-selling, if we are truely broken on the inside of us and allow the Lord Jesus to have his way, the souls that the Lord iw winning through us indirectly will abide but if they discover pretence, they will not embrace Jesus.

Our time here on earth is short, we can not continue to allow the devil to rob us of our main assignment though his lies, let's standup and make up our mind like the day of Joshua that says; But if you refuse to serve the LORD, then choose today whom you will serve. Would you prefer the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates? Or will it be the gods of the Amorites in whose land you now live? But as for me and my family, we will serve the LORD - Joshua 24:15
