THE GOSPEL TRUTH -‘Femi Adedeji & Samuel Ajayi
The Truth about the Gospel is one of the most hidden treasures; open to all, identified by few and lived by some out of the few. The truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ is not found in mere Christian religiosity/churchianity (doctrines), merchandise theory (prosperity/motivational teachings), the OSAS theory (once saved always saved), denominationalism or traditions. Most Christian denominations today, claim they have the real gospel truth. Yet, Jesus said there is only ONE gospel.
Pilate was the first person who asked what the truth was when he asked Jesus: “What is truth?” And when he had said this, he went out again to the Jews and *said to them, “I find no guilt in Him (John 18:38). Remember Jesus said ‘you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free…’ The real truth sets free; free from what? Free from sin and lust, from domination of flesh, demons and evil spirits. Jesus declared He is the personification of that truth (Heb.6:18, Jn. 1:9, 14; 14:6). His teachings are unchanging realities. His statutes and commands give eternal life; it gives meaning and vitality to man (Jn.17:17; 6:63; Mt.24: 35).
Knowing the truth is beyond going to church or serving as worker or preaching there. Being called a Pastor does not make you a knower of truth. Knowing the truth is to have a personal encounter with Christ, it is for Christ to dwell and rule your life and attitudes; it is for you to obey his commands and teachings (II Jn vs. 9).
Don’t be deceived by the sweet, self-pleasing worship and miracle-based faith that fill our land today. They are fake! Remember the word of Jesus: “For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect (Mt 24: 24).
Steps to the truth are:
Believe this word now and acknowledge your sins; confess and pray for forgiveness; Invite Jesus to indwell and rule your heart; Start to live by His dictates. Learn more of His ways by reading the word of God, meditate therein daily and live by them. Stop living by what ‘my pastor’ says, ‘my GO’ says or what ‘my Prophet’ says. Deny yourself and carry your cross daily (Mt 16: 24). Become like Christ in your Character and dealings with fellow men and women. That’s all!
DIVINE HELP FOR YOU ON YOUR SICK BED
Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool, which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five porches.
In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water.
For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.
And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years.
When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole?
The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me.
Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.
And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the sabbath (Jn 5: 2-9).
You are probably faced with challenges beyond you now, with little or no help coming our way even from families, friends, and colleagues that you look up to. You might have even lost all hopes. The good news today is that Jesus knows about your case and how long. It does not matter how critical or how long your situation has been. The word of God that is coming personally to you now. Will you want to be made whole? Your response will determine so many things that will take place from now on. Right now Jesus is offering you an opportunity to rise above that sickness: ulcer, cancer, stroke, high blood pressure, diabetes, dislocations, burns and all other embarrassing situation in and on around you. That terminal ailment will not end your life, because it is terminated now in Jesus name. Your season of healing and deliverance has come now. That situation is changing for your good.
What God requires from you now is
- Confess & Repent from all your past sins, anger, bitterness, bad habits, grudges and unforgiving acts, etc.
- Surrender your life and will to Christ totally. Promise to do His will in all areas.
- Believe this message is for you. Believe Jesus is able and willing to deliver you from your present condition now.
- Now say after me:
By faith, I claim and I receive my healing (deliverance) from……. (Name the condition), by the power in the blood of Jesus and in the mighty name of Jesus.
Now listen to this: I decree to you now; receive your healing/deliverance in the mighty name of Jesus. And I say arise, take up thy bed and walk in Jesus name. (say a loud ‘Amen’).

BIBLICAL PERSPECTIVE ON YOUR MARRIAGE
At the beginning, God divinely ordained the institution of marriage in holiness. Men soon bastardized it, even in the Old Testament. Today, people no longer follow Gods original purpose; as demonstrated in all sorts of perversion. Are you a child of God? Listen to these:
- Marriage that God delights in is between one man and one woman.
- No divorce.
- Premarital and extramarital sex is SIN.
- Anger without forgiveness is SIN.
- Bad attitudes to your spouse without repenting is SIN. -REPENT!
Now, to have a Godly, happy home, both husband and wife must be genuinely born again. They must build their marriage on biblical principles. The arrangement is not about supremacy, equality, or the likes. The scripture reveals the original design of God for couple. The relationship must be built on submission and love.
SUBMISSION: The responsibility of the wife is to submit to her husband. Col. 3:18 states that, “wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord”. Wife must submit to her husband because, it is appropriate for her position in Christ. In a Godly marriage, the wife submits to the husband in order to bring transformation to him (I Pet. 3:1-2). Submission does not imply that the wife is less than the husband (Gal. 3:28). This is the perfect model! The husband is the head of the family as Christ is the head of the church.
LOVE: The responsibility of the husband according to the scripture is to love his wife. The bible says that, “Husbands, love your wives and do not be embittered against them” (Col. 3:29). This love according to Eph. 5:25-28 must be realistic, sacrificial, purposeful, personal and as Christ loves the Church and gave Himself for her.
You might have chosen your partner in error; your spouse might be very nasty and uncooperative; you might also have some other problems as a family; all is not lost! Know and accept this declaration: God can heal your marriage as you submit to his command. Be willing to make amends. You need more humility, more patience, more endurance and more love. Pray, change and give more into your marriage! Testimonies await you!
