This blog is a sequel of my great passion to bless this generation with the "insights and revelations that have been given me to understand" through my writings. Every article, every thought... Every writing (some short, some long) is not 'promised' to be a blessing; it's sure to be a blessing. Thank you.Leave a comment
Jacob woke up and had to exclaim something entirely different from what God just said to him. Isn't that funny? It wasn't about the place. It wasn't a factor of the land where Jacob lied that caused God to reveal himself to Jacob in a dream. It was a factor of the presence of Jacob in that place that caused for the revelation of the dream because God said plainly "Behold, I am with thee". That means God's presence accompanied Jacob to that place [...]Read More
There was one person that totally defied the order of Kings, Priests and Prophets existing in different entities. Yeah, that guy. Yeah, I'm talking about David. I believe it should be already clearly known by now that David operated a new Testament order. He was a King, Priest and Prophet. How come David was a King, Priest and Prophet? First, even the order in which he became king was unusual. God had to break the flow of sons reigning in their father's stead and anoint by the hands of Samuel a boy from the backside of nowhere as king [...]Read more
I once listened to a man of God say, which one would you rather be? A believer, not able to pray in the Holy Ghost or a believer being able to pray in the Holy Ghost (speak with tongues). I don't know what your answer might be, cos I've met a lot of people who have sort of classified tongues to be for a selected few, and therefore, they pretend to be cool without it, but I do know what my answer to that question is... Definitely a believer vomiting all the Holy Ghost tongues I can vomit [...]Read More
An inspirational & insightful speaker and writer on the precepts, principles and revelations of the God-Kingdom. A teacher of the word; a lover of God and a proclaimer of the Kingdom of God.
Your articles have lit up a burning fire within me never to be put out but fueled with fervent prayer and constant meditation on God's word.
Kizo, you have a definite gift for order, and determinaton to inspire insight, and thought. To make the common place not so common, but Spiritual instead. To share what gift you have with others that perhaps they will see what you see, and feel what you feel. I am blessed to have come across your work, hire and burden.
Your conversational approach and analogies makes your blog very interesting to read and has a lot of depth. You’ve taken what could be “hard to understand scriptures” and dissected them without losing essence or meaning.
I got an ah ah moment there. Thank you for sharing this insightful package. KIZO please keep writing as you are inspired, it is reaching hearts beyond your imagination.
Your blog is very true and so good to read. Loved it.
Love how you write, brother; your style is distinctive!
Great one sir. You have always been an inspiration to me sir. Great Work from a great brother. Kizo… I love this…
This is awesome. Simple, yet carries so much of truth and depth we usually forget. Thank you.
Well Kizo what will I do with you huh? What great themes you illustrate with such power. I reblogged this and shared it on facebook.
Awesome post – I remember a pastor once started his sermon with this … “What is our purpose her on earth?” … his answer ” To know God and to make Him known” this stuck with me … and I was reminded of it while reading your post!! God bless you as you continue to share what God puts on your heart. I look forward to reading more posts in the future!!
Visiting your site I have been inspired to write a post. This morning, my soul was in a lot of pain. Uninspired even, which is very unusual for me. But now I have a post for today. Thank you, and of course for my small part, you are welcome.
Perception gone wrong
I had to first make clear the premises upon which darkness was created before I could expand on the essence of darkness. Darkness has most often been perceived wrong, and most definitely has led to wrong assertions and conclusions concerning what darkness is, and also what darkness is pertaining to God. Darkness is perceived as an entity which an enemy of God. The idea of most people is that God is in ‘this’ limbo of misery and pain where he constantly has to deal with the works of darkness in the form of ‘unrighteousness’ and ‘manifestations of hardship, confusion or strategic works of demonic activities’. God is considered to be eternally stuck with darkness in a cycle of pain and misery.
Therefore, whenever we perceive darkness, or darkness shows up, we are led in the direction of believing that God is probably hitting himself on the forehead and saying – “Oh shoot! Not this again”. No! Not so. Let me come again, No No No!
The workings of the Holy Spirit
When darkness shows up once again in or during the activities of God, when darkness becomes manifest to conceal the works of God, when darkness once again appears; and often appears to be disrupting the plans, activities and purposes of God, let me say; it is not just being manifest to disrupt as it appears to us, it is being manifest so the spirit of God could go to work. The spirit of God broods over every darkness. You would come to understand that the presence or the entrance of the Holy Spirit brings ‘understanding’, and understanding brings ‘light’. The Holy Spirit is constantly brooding over every darkness in every form and manner of its manifestation, and he is converting them to light.
Darkness is an avenue for God to work; it is an avenue for the spirit of God to work and make the glory of the Father evident. Darkness creates a workshop for the Holy Spirit to perform his wonders and reveal the glory and excellency of God. The Holy Spirit is excited to engage darkness. In fact, the Holy Spirit is leaping for joy when he has to brood over every darkness.
As long as the Holy Spirit is brooding, there will be light. However, let me add; for the Holy Spirit to keep brooding, there has to be darkness.
The Beginning of Everything
Before I can move on, I have to first satisfy the question of whether darkness was before God showed up on the scene or after. It’s easy to go ahead and say; darkness came into existence when God created the heaven and earth. Of course, he created the earth from darkness, into darkness, and full of darkness (Genesis 1:1-2). So, we could have concluded that darkness came into existence when God spoke the earth into existence.
However, before jumping into any conclusions, I’d like you to understand that before God spoke the earth into existence, God was and is. That is, God was and is already in existence far before the time of the creation of the world…and we then again understand that God himself dwells in darkness. God who is ‘light’ shines out of darkness (1John 1:5, 2Corinth 4:6, John 8:12). God’s abode is darkness; God is covered and dwells in darkness (Psalm 18:11, Psalm 97:2, 2Chronicles 6:1). So, if God himself dwells in darkness, then, darkness didn’t come into existence at the creation of the world. Then again, we’re back at the question; did darkness exist before God showed up on the scene or after?
The Sovereignty of God
Now, you’re probably at a icky place right now. Confused so to say…so, was darkness before God?…cos logically and naturally, a thing cannot exist until what it’s meant to survive on is in place. Even that is evident in creation. I believe I mentioned this a little bit in the article; Purpose – Not Created for the fun of it. Basically, the plants and animals didn’t come until there was water. Man wasn’t created until there were animals, plants and water in place. A car or a generator that runs on petroleum cannot be made until there’s refined petroleum in place. You get the gist already.
God created the heaven and the earth, but the earth was found in profound formlessness, voidness and darkness…until God began to work upon the earth.
After the fall of man, the sequence of man’s life became that he was born in sin and unrighteousness (formlessness, voidness and darkness). That became the pattern and sequence for every man’s life, whether he was the son of the most anointed man of God or not. Every man had been brought and is born under the same spiritual ancestral lineage by default; which is the lineage of the first Adam, and therefore all became partakers of his broken and filthy nature of voidness, emptiness and darkness.
So, by default a man’s life before the advent of the move of God is without form, void and full of darkness. However, something happens that changes the situation. Genesis 1:2b says that; “and the spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters”. Then, God went on in verse 3 and said; “let there be light”. The moment the MOVE OF GOD happens in your life; which is the encounter between the creation and the creator, there’s a reaction that is birthed forth, and a signification of the beginning of a transformation, and that is LIGHT.
So, the first evidence of God in the life of a man is “the light”. There are two stages to this however; the first stage is of the ‘light within’, which later translates into the second stage of the ‘light without’. A man first is first full of light within himself; catches an understanding of God within himself before he’s able to show that light forth, before he’s able to show the light without. I’d have loved to help us see this through the eyes of the creation of the world but that’s not our focus for today. That’s a topic for some other time.
I said it before, and I’m gonna keep saying it. The sustenance of the creation is dependent on the acknowledgement and connection with the Creator. Man cannot escape the depths within him that cries out and yearns for a connection and love (experienced and known) with his creator. Nobody can escape that. Nobody can escape […]
Letters to Mrs K Dear Mrs. K, You should always keep in mind that making or keeping your man happy is indirectly keeping yourself happy. Just as your man understands that keeping you happy always means keeping himself happy always. I said before that there are three people in this relationship, if you decide to […]
It was on a Wednesday evening. We had just concluded Sybil’s bridal shower and we were exhausted. We decided to settle in her courtyard. She had a large television there, she picked up the remote and tuned into a sports station. The match was between two prominent clubs. I could not say for others but […]
One of the biggest and most dangerous phenomenon that ever hit the Church is religion. Always in the toil trying to prove that we’re able to fix our problems and our sins; that we are righteous by works, to gain a sense of actually having to do or done something, because the concept of grace […]
Dear Mrs. K, I have come to understand that no love is able to be communicated perfectly, proved or stand the test of time without ‘sacrifice’ finding its way into the equation. You would have to sacrifice or give up certain things for you to further increase the strength upon which your relationship with your […]
My legs seemed to ache as I traveled on foot along Westside road in Lagos (Nigeria). I did not really have a specific destination but I just needed to take this long walk. The entire journey was going to take about 6 hours to and fro if I walked at the same pace. Stupid right? […]
There are certain very important principles or focuses when it comes to God, and one of those is the importance of Purpose. I discovered something about man’s purpose and I’ll be divulging that in a minute. Just before I go on to divulge that, I’d like you to understand that everything God created as recorded […]
There I was sitting in a bus listening to the presenter from the radio talk along with an analyst by his side with different callers that called in to give their different views and opinions on a subject matter… There’s an issue I have to address. I can bear it minimally when an unbeliever refuses […]
Dear Mrs. K, I would love to let you know the only reason your man is and will stay committed to you is based on three unequivocally and hierarchically important bases. Your man is committed to you because he is ‘committed to God‘ first and foremost, then, he is ‘committed to the image of you […]
Dear Mrs. K, One very important thing you should never do, either in favour of yourself or someone else is to compromise your values. There’s nothing more disqualifying and dishonouring in a woman than for her to easily compromise her values whether on a platter of silver or on a platter of gold. A woman […]
Dear Mrs. K, Again dear, I’d love you to understand that the ‘purpose of love’ is also meant and expected to birth in you the ‘love of Purpose’. You should feel greater passion, love and energy towards your purpose with the presence of your man in your life. Your passion, love and energy towards your […]
I intended to write on this for a while now, for most people who follow me on social media (twitter and Facebook), you would have come across a time when I said I was going to write on this topic; The Bloody Covenant…but later decided to postpone this. Well, that turned out great cos I […]
Alright people… I’M BACK…and I’m not just back, back in a better and a bigger way…and that’s why I’ve chosen to announce to you with joy in my heart; the launching of my new site / web address. I believe everyone saw the notification on me moving to a New address on my former address, […]
Dear Mrs. K, I thought we should begin this year on a very purposeful note. I’d love you to know that your man is not your purpose. You were definitely not just waiting around for your man to come around when he did, you were doing something; you were threading the path of purpose. You […]
Who else feels like there should have just been a limbo of some sort, a sustain moment or a pause moment before the new year. At least allow me collect my thoughts, figure things out properly, understand and carefully pan out things before the new year ushered itself in. Apparently, there’s no such thing. The […]
Dear Mrs. K, The path of the just is said to be as a shining light that shines brighter and brighter unto the perfect day. Your relationship with your man is one that shines brighter and brighter. I’ve seen a lot of people say; they have a lot of problems with their woman, and it […]
Dear Mrs. K, It’s the end of the year. It’s not just about looking forward to the new things and new commitments in the new year. While you’re looking forward in anticipation, always take time to reflect on the already ending year. Take time to thank God; the third person that has kept your relationship […]
