LETS FACE REALITY
“By the word of the lord were heavens made; and all the hosts of them by the breath of his mouth.” “For he spake, and it was”
He commanded and it stood fast”. Psalm 33:6, 9. He “laid the foundations of the earth that it should not be remove forever” Psalm 104;5
All things in this world belong to our God because they are created by him. God created all things and gave them values in accordance to the roles he has assigned them to performed. Therefore everything in this world has its role as far as they were created by God. Every attitude displayed in this world has its own positive and negative effects. Every idea is like a coal of fire that can become a mighty flame at any time. every word spoken has its meaning and power as far as this world is concerned. Every song has its own interpretation and every action has its effects.
In our society today it is common norm that when a child insults his parent or an elderly person, there is a natural curse upon such a child according to the law of repercussion (the consequences of an event or action). May be out of anger, the parent or the elder may disclose the annoyance by reminding such child with a massage: “what you have done to me will be done to you by your children” in other words, he is saying “you will reap what you sow”
It is also a tradition that when a child displays a decent attitude before the parent or an elderly person, there is a natural blessings upon such child according to the law of repercussion. Sometimes the parent may disclose his excitement by assuring such child with a message “God bless you” or “what you have done to me will be done to you by another children”.
However, it is true that those proclaimations or words 0f assurance will surely come to pass irrespective of time and season. In this case, it is seen that the nature has a way of compensating every man according to his deeds whether good or bad.
Nevertheless, curses are the rewards to a wicked man and blessings are the rewards to a good man whether they are pronounced or not. Automatically, “the wicked man earns deceptive wages but he who sows righteousness reaps assure rewards”. Proverbs 22:8
As long as it is a law that whatever a man sows so shall he reap: Galatians 6:7 then, it is a law that when an action is taken: it must generate a positive or negative effect to the entire universe including the very person who took the action either at will or by ignorance. It is a law that when a word is spoken there must be a manifestation of the meaning of that very word and a reward to the speaker. It is a law that when an attitude is displayed, there must be a serious return to the person who displayed it and to the entire universe. It is a law that whatever you give out (word, action and cash) must surely come back to you. The messiah says:
“give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together and running over. Shall men give into your bossom: for with the same measure that ye use, it will be measured back to you”. Luke 6:38. This is investment with a sure reward!
Investment is not just saving money in a bank account of this world to generate interest back to investor. Investment is not just buying and selling for greater profit. It is not all about turning unfinished goods to finished goods as some business expert would say. It is beyond those concepts according to the law of nature “give and it shall be given to you” or “whatever a man sows so shall he also reap”
Investment is all about “giving out”; either to god or humanity for greater returns or rewards in accordance with the law of nature. Giving is not limited to money or material things but it involves giving out time, words and actions that change the posture or the position of an individual or something either in one way or the other.
Generally, investment is a quality of life (an attitude) displayed before God and man with a message of good attitude or bad attitude. It is a lifestyle that speaks louder that mere expression of words. Whatever you give (words or action) to God in heaven or to the people in the world is AN INVESTMENT and it is recorded as stock in the book of heaven, which will generate greater returns or interests back to you in full measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over. Therefore, “judge not and you shall not be judged. Condemn not, and you shall not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven… for with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you” luke 6:37-38. In order words, if you judge, you will be judged accordingly, if you forgive, for sure you will be forgiven. HalleluYah! Therefore, INVESTMENT is an attitude or a lifestyle that has greater impact to the investor and society either in one way or the other. It is a ministry of giving for greater returns.
Good investment is all about giving, saying, caring, loving, serving, nurturing, helping, training, or lending a helping hand to one another either at will or by ignorance; which will return back to the investor or the giver in full measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over.
However, any word, action or attitude that results in injury, destruction, condemnation, or harm to oneself or another person is an investment (evil investment), but the truth is that there is a reward for such investment as long as the law of repercussion is concerned.
Today, so many people in our world feel that whatever they do is just like a common shadow that fades away after the sunset. Some believe that an act of love is not necessary in this present age of computer science and technological development. So many people believe that it is good to steal and go free; after all, it is government money or national cake, millions of people have concerned. So many people have been carried away by the murderous attitude of our political game of today: man die go and that’s all! Many young girls and boys are obsessed with robbery and prostitution because they believe that these are the reigning ways of life that attract honor and respect. Some of our women today have rubbished themselves with indecent hair (styles) nails like eagle, wearing of make ups like domestic dog, and painting with black and white or rainbow colors like masquerade. Tattoo, breast enlargement, hip enlargement and plastic surgery ha e come to stay which so many people think that these things are just common signs or parameters of beauty as if the almighty God made mistakes in their images.
Since the “era of night of thousand laughs” millions of young men, women and dubious pastors are doing everything possible to entertain the whole world with their sarcastic attitudes. So many churches today have become theater grounds for comedy; leading millions of people into a deeper pit of frustration and condemnation. Gluttony and drunkenness have become a popular lifestyle today among our young men, young women and the aged because they think that life is all about eating and drinking. Borrowing without payment has become a popular lifestyle as far as smartness is concerned. Bribery and corruption have now become shortcuts of success as if success is man-made.
Hatred and discrimination in the churches today have reached the cloud of heaven like the tower of babel. Some pastors and elders of these days can comfortably exchange blows or abominable words and attitude on the pulpits during church services or church meetings in the name of leadership. Witchcraft and cultism have come to stay, and these are common ways of killing, maiming and destruction of lives as if they do not have values.
Rock music, noise making and all forms of demonic dances in the society, in the church and individual homes have proved that this so called “digital age” is a generation of noise makers. Fashions of dressing (sagging and “show me your breast”) in our world today have really proved that the world has reached the epic of destruction. Men are competing with women and vice versa in every matter of life, as if life all about competition.
Moreover, marriage today is exactly as marketing; buying and selling or turning unfinished goods into finished goods. Pornographic videos and songs have become popular or regular movies in most houses especially in so called Christians’ homes. Homosexuality and lesbianism of today were popular lifestyles of the sodomites, but if God could burn them up with brimstone; will he not do the same to this generation of vipers? If these lifestyles were good before God, I think Joseph; the son of Jacob would have been an expert. If robbery was smartness, I think God would not have troubled them in any way.
We are in a world where most parents or elders are bastardly beaten by their children or the youths. We are living in a world where the aged men and women are regarded as witch and wizards by their own sons, daughters and daughters –in-laws. our would has become a place where the elders are completely regarded as “old schools’ by the youth who called themselves “new schools”. What a wonderful would!
In our society today, the fifth commandment “honour your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the lord your God is giving you”. Exodus 20:12 has become outdated in the eyes of some young men and women who feel that they are richer than their parent or the elders. But the question is “are we heading to eternal freedom or eternal condemnation and death? But these kinds of investments are we making for ourselves? But these are what the people who lived before us had displayed before God and man but God choose to flush them away like excreta without mercy because they did not deserve mercy.
INVESTMENT is a game of giving and receiving at the same time with the same cup of measurement, shaking together and running over back to the investor. God is the stockbroker that pays everyman according to his deeds; whether good or evil, and whether right or wrong. God has placed with every man a tireless secretary who keeps records of pictures of our dealing, who takes note of our words and actions and to submit the book records to the great God in heaven.
The same god who caused Adam and Eve and sent them away from the Garden of Eden was the same God who dealt with Cain and Lamech, and he took time to flush their generations away with flood. The same god who filled this world with water was the same who dealt properly with the people of Sodom and Gomorrah. Will he not deal with all of us accordingly? But if he fails, then he has to apologize to the people he had destroyed because of these same abominable investments. But the almighty God is omnipotence, omniscience and omnipresence. He makes no mistakes!
