I’m back again
It’s day 4…..
These past few weeks have left so many of us with mixed feelings. I heard a lot of Christians hold back albeit with a bit of difficulty but hold back nonetheless from questioning God. I personally know a lot of Christians who struggled.
I still remember that morning like it was yesterday. I woke up at 4am like I usually do to get ready for my fitness instructor who come rain or shine, hell or high water would show up at 5.30am to “punish” me. So as I got up, (I must confess I have this bad habit of reaching for my BlackBerry once I get up, either to check the time or messages) I immediately reached for my phone. And there it was on a friends pm ” Oh! Lord tell me it isn’t true…” and with those seven words I was awoken to the terrible reality that Dr Myles Munroe and his beautiful wife were no longer with us…
A lot of people cried out…
“Why are Christians dying? If a whole Myles Munroe can die who is safe? ”
“Plane crash again?! Another minister of the gospel? What is going on? ”
I heard all sorts of things. People put his picture up, quoted him,
blogged about him but in all of this I remained silent and found comfort in this scripture
“To be absent in the body is to be present with the Lord. ”
-2 corinthians 5:8
We cried because we would miss him but as soon as that plane exploded, he rejoiced because he was with the Lord and probably even cried for us… cried because he felt sorry for us that we were still limited on earth and not free like him now
We asked why? Why would the righteous die when so many wicked still live?
And I am comforted Yet again and quietened by this fact that
“good people pass away; the godly often die before their time….no one seems to understand that God is protecting them from the evil to come”- Isaiah 57:1
But while we were still recovering or should I say being comforted the blackberry dps started changing again and this time it was popular radio personality and creator and host of sharing life’s issues chaz B who had kicked the bucket.
Radio went haywire. People called in crying talking about how he had blessed them and how he had touched their lives…
….then I finally got it. I had an Eureka moment. I heard it in the spirit loud and clear LIFE HAS AN EXPIRY DATE.
Yes, whether we like it or not, we are all going to die . We are all going to leave behind this earthly body whether in death or by rapture but one thing is for sure. We will all transit this earth at some point in time.
It got me thinking, when great men like Myles Munroe
or Pastor Bimbo Odukoya
pass on, we shouldn’t cry for them instead we should go and look at our own BEST BEFORE dates
and do something worthwhile with our lives before we EXPIRE.
If you really think about it, everyone actually has a best before date. It’s what the book of Ecclesiastes calls the days of your youth. Serve God with your youthful strength. You are actually BEST BEFORE you die 😉
And because we don’t have all the time in the World, You do have an expiry date you know….
God wants you to make impact before its too late. Before you are certified expired
God wants you to Accelerate your excelling so you can affect and inspire as many people before your expiry date. I hear there’s a meeting you must attend to help you EXCELLERATE. It’s a seminar for business people to receive their own last minute miracles. Find details in the flier below
Also some more good news….Last Minute Miracles still continues tomorrow. it’s been extended. Ministering tomorrow is my very own PK 🙂
DO NOT MISS IT!
See y’all tomorrow.
Still pushing through…. Consistently
