In this article, I discuss the place of Mary in Scripture compared to the doctrines of RCC and how the doctrines are erroneous and not derived from proper exegesis of the canon of Scripture finalized at the council of Nicaea in 325 AD. The danger in false doctrines is that the one who posits them is apostate to God, which further leads those who believe the false doctrines to be true and continue to promote them apostacy. Come Judgment Day, those who renounce their faith in this way, will be among those to whom Jesus says,
Many Christian theologians say that there are three dimensions of God's presence. Knowledge of these dimensions help us grow our faith in Him. We can refer to these dimensions in the following ways: First, God is omnipresent or always present everywhere. Second, God manifests or shows Himself to His people. Third, He is indwelling or living in us.
Jesus says in Revelation 20:15, that anyone’s name not found in the book of life is thrown into the lake of fire. This will happen on the day of judgment, when all the dead from the sea, from death and Hades will be taken before Jesus will judge them according to what they have done and then Death and Hades are thrown into the lake of fire (Revelation 20:11-14).
A pastor was extended a letter of call by a church in one of our villages and upon his arrival, he announced the destruction of the church building at the beginning of his ministry as his to be prompt fulfilled project in church without examining the people and finances of the church. This was a building project worth six million to be carried out in a village. A year passed with little resources put in place, but with the church structure destroyed and the Christians had no permanent place of worship. The project took more than ten years to be realized, even without the presence of this minister (pastor), while the church members have gone through a lot of stress/pressure.

Came into existence in November 26- 2015 in Yaoundé, that means today makes this vision exactly seven years old, but we pushed the birthday celebration to the 4th so we can have a cutting of the cake during our discussion time.. We have been able to achieve a lot and carried out lots of activities, and touch many lives.
Which kind of offering can we give to God who has given us everything? When you think of who God is to you, His protection, His provisions and promotions in your life, what can you give Him? Here is David in the midst of a challenge.
Jesus Christ was interrupted by ten lepers who stood from affar because of their condition. They were yelling at Jesus, "Jesus, Master, have mercy on us". They were requesting to be healed of their leprosy. They recognized Him as the Messiah, the Master who could help them out of their pitiful condition. He simply gave an instruction, “Go and show yourselves to the priests.”
In most Churches we have entered the season of Harvest Thanksgiving or Annual Thanksgiving. It is a period set apart to intentionally appreciate God for His goodness and kindness towards us. In reality, we have to thank God everyday of our lives because His goodness and kindness do not come to us in a particular season, they are for life.
The law of process teaches us that some accomplishments takes time to be fulfilled. Some achievements needs time to be built. We live at a time when many young people want to bypass process and just arrived at the final product. To have a chocolate, there is a process from the cocoa farm to the factory. To have a baby, there is a process from pregnancy to delivery.
Most requests we make to God take some times to manifest in our lives. For that reason, many children of God miss the mark and hurry to make up a human way to their needs and problems. We need to know that there is a big difference between "not yet" and "no." Children do no know the difference. When you say "not yet" to a child, he or she takes it for a "no".
God has a timing for every purpose on earth and in our lives. He promised a son to Abraham, it took 25 years for the promise to be fulfilled. He made a promise to Noah, it took 120 years for it to come true. Moses was moved by God to deliver His people, yet God waited 40 years for Moses to mature and become humble behind sheep.
John Maxwell said, "The most difficult place for you to be in life is in God's waiting room." Some of you are there right now. When you are in a hurry for something to happen and God is not. You are in God’s waiting room. Some of you are in a hurry to graduate, to get married, to start a family, to lunch a new business, to close a big deal.
Christianity is not a religion; it is the life of God operating in man. It is an adoption into a new life. Through Jesus Christ, God has given access to eternal life to all humans. Those who believe in the Gospel message about God's love, forgiveness, and the gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ, have access to a new kind and a new dimension of life, a life of blessedness.
Anyone who does not adhere to God's word is under judgment of the word. The blessings of God are in obedience. We must actively obey the word of we want to see God's blessings. In John 13:17, Jesus Christ spoke to His Disciples, If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them. So, it is our obedience to God's word that releases his blessings in our lives.
There is a great mistake that many born again children of God commit today, getting married to unbelievers. One of the causes of curses in some people's life is called, Ungodly Covenants In Exodus 23: 32, God is clear about this: "You shall make no covenant with them, nor with their gods." Marriage is a covenant and once you enter into a marriage covenant with an unbeliever, you also enter into a covenant with his or her gods.
Our passage says, For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.” What you say about yourself and your circumstances is very important. Your words will either bless, free you or will curse and condemn you in poverty and lack. Long ago, Solomon gave this strong declaration, "Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit." (Proverbs 18:21).
We saw different levels of authority established by God for the purpose of order, calling and principles. We cannot have two leading commanders in the same boat. Taking the case of government and citizens, many people and even Christians have been taught and led to think that the government is evil and that we should pray against the government and against those in government. This idea has also been promoted along the years because some government leaders have been antagonistic to the church and her missions. But, let's have a different view today through God's word.
