THE IDENTITY RULE

The earth is like a football field with an ongoing match between two teams. These teams are represented by humans who may be aware or unaware of what team they represent.

These teams are the forces of light and darkness. They never co-exist. They take turns to rule depending on the human representatives on the field. Just the way both teams on a football field can’t have the ball at the same time.


After the fall of man (Genesis 3:1-24), the force of darkness had a field day on earth. Everyone played for it. No one had a choice (Romans 3:23). The earth and its component had its fill of darkness. Both men, animate and inanimate things groaned for deliverance.

In due time, light shone into the darkness of the earth and the darkness couldn’t understand how it gave way so easily to the presence of light. (John 1:5)

Read: The Exchange

Men began to experience peace, joy and lasting freedom at the appearance of light.

The forces of light began to recruit representatives delivered from the gruesome grip of the forces of darkness and these recruits were empowered to represent LIGHT.

At birth every man is recruited in the force of darkness. Most people believe that doing good exempts them from being on the dark force army.

Contrary to popular opinion, there is only one way to escape being with the force of darkness. That way is JESUS, THE SON OF GOD.
“Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is no other name given among men, whereby we must be saved. (KJB) Acts 4:12
Living in a legalistic world, it is an offense to say that there is no other way out of darkness except JESUS CHRIST. However offensive this might sound, it doesn’t negate this as true.

The first rule for leading in life, is to identify whose side you are on- light or darkness?
The second rule for leading in life, is to understand the principles guiding your team
The third rule for leading in life is to align with the principles guiding your team.
 If you’re with darkness, how much of it do you know and wield to your advantage? If you are with light, how much of it do you know and wield to your advantage?

 At this point, you must identify whose side you are on. There is no in between. You are either with the force of darkness or the force of light.






WHY YOU NEED TO BE WITH THE FORCE OF LIGHT

Many people claim to find purpose while in the force of darkness. The one thing they are yet to understand is this- the forces of darkness didn’t create man. Therefore it is impossible to know ones true purpose while being under the influence of darkness.
Man was created by CHRIST the Lead man in the force of light and therefore only by a relationship with HIM can purpose be given.
“All things were made by HIM (Christ); and without him was not anything made that was made” John 1:3 (KJV) emphasis added

At this point, we should know that purpose is given and not discovered
The word given places emphasis on a designer (CHRIST), while the word discovered places emphasis on man’s independent search. By searching, we very likely adopt an unfitting purpose even though we see results. Therefore it is better to go to the original source (CHRIST) in order to receive your purpose.

HOW TO ENROL IN THE FORCE OF LIGHT

Step 1: Recognize Jesus as Light
Zoom in on this “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.  Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son. This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed.’ John 3:16-20 (NIV)

Step 2: Acknowledge Him as the Son of God
If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10: 9 (NLT)

Step 3: Confess aloud that Jesus is Lord and saviour of your heart
If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10: 9 (NLT)

Step 4: Believe that He died and was resurrected from the dead for you to be saved (delivered from darkness)
If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10: 9 (NLT)

If you examined yourself earlier in this class and saw that you do not currently represent the force of light and are willing to, please say this prayer sincerely from your heart.

Lord Jesus, i admit that I was born in darkness. I acknowledge you as the Light by whom I was originally created. I believe that you died to pay for my sins and you rose from the dead giving me victory over sin and death.
I confess you as Lord over my life and I surrender to your lordship. Wash and sanctify me by your blood. Give me your Spirit that I may live for you.

HOW TO SPOT A GOOD MAN

Last night at Insure your marriage  online conference, I was privileged to teach on the subject, Good men are hard to find. Is that  true? Destroying the myths and lies that make women settle for less than God's best. This post is a copy of what I shared with them. I did a different post for a meaty part of the Q and A.  Check it out. Once you are done with this.  Let's Define God's best God's best in marriage is a spouse and a situation that sets you up for growth  in these areas 👉Spiritual 👉Financial 👉Emotional 👉Relational The term set up means it may not be in the "package" that you expect because it is first committed to helping you mature into God's picture of you,  than it is about making you feel fly. If you truly understand this, you will be delivered from these o n your marital journey,  ✅ Comparison  ✅Jealousy ✅ impatience/Haste ✅ Discouragement Please don't misunderstand me.

WISE COUNSEL TO QUESTIONS SINGLES ASK - PART 1

The difference between being at peace in a relationship and having your heart troubled till you can't breathe is in the counsel you heed to. I've seen beautiful relationships even marriages crumble because  one or both of them listened to a "thus says the Lord, that's not your husband/wife".  While I believe that God leads us in the area of marriage, He doesn't expressly tell everyone who to marry. There are some people he told.  However, he has placed wisdom pillars on our path to help make the right decisions. The questions below are asked by real people I have  met on my ministry journey.  I will keep adding to it as I find the time to write here.  For now, I hope these ones would help hold the torch as you search the truth for your specific situation. Question 1   If you have someone coming to you for a relationship who takes alcohol like one or two bottles, doesn't get drunk on it and says he is a Christian. Can this person be classified as a good Chr

SOCIAL MEDIA MANAGEMENT

Social media has always been there; but not everyone paid close attention or saw the need to set up a profile for themselves or their businesses.   With COVID-19 radically obstructing the norm, more individuals and businesses have woken up to the necessity of having a social media profile.  I believe you have been woke for a very long time or perhaps you are just waking up. Either way, congratulations!!! Perhaps you got on board and  realised that it is not as easy as people make it seem.  You wonder how to successfully handle your social media pages to correctly represent your personality and opinion as an individual.  You have barely figured out how to use Facebook to successfully promote your business, only to hear people say Instagram is the best marketing platform and you are confused. You barely find time to post because your actual life or business routine is too full You hear about the many social media platforms- google+, Pinterest, Linkedin, Twitter, TikTok, Snapchat, Perisco
