The Value of God

David says: “The earth is the LORD’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it.” (Psalm 24:1). How then can we insist only a tithe of our income belongs to God? God does not only own ten percent of our possessions, he owns everything we have. As a matter of fact, we belong to the Lord, even as he also belongs to us. Thus, Jeremiah declares: “The LORD is (our) portion.” (Lamentation 3:24).

Tithing Bananas

As far as many pastors are concerned, the most important scripture of all is not to be found in the word of Jesus. Neither is it even in the New Testament. That scripture says: “‘Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house, and try me now in this,’ says the LORD of hosts, ‘If I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it.’” (Malachi 3:10).

What is The Name of Jesus?

Several years ago, I was listening to a sermon by Ethel Aderemi, when the Lord suddenly asked yet another of his enigmatic questions. “Femi,” he said, “what is the name of Jesus?” I was dumbfounded. I asked myself: “Is Jesus not the name of Jesus?” What then could be the meaning of the Lord’s question?

The Kingdom of the Rich

A while ago, my wife and I were invited to a thanksgiving service. Most of us in attendance were filthy rich. Jesus says God blesses with poverty and not with riches. (Luke 6:20-25). But we were there to celebrate the “blessed” riches of a particular family. We were all gorgeously dressed, celebrating their riches and ours in song, dance, and prayers; presuming that since ours is the kingdom of men, the kingdom of God would also be ours.

I Am Greater Than Isaiah

My name is Femi Aribisala. You may know me as the writer of these articles of faith. What you may not know, however, is that I am a great man. Indeed, I am greater than Prophet Isaiah. I am greater than Jeremiah and Ezekiel. I am greater than Elijah and Elisha. As a matter of fact, I am greater than all the Old Testament prophets.

Does God Know You By Name?

I am 60 years old but have never ever bought a car for myself. It was not for lack of money. Before God made me close down all my businesses in one day in 2005, I made a lot of money. However, the Lord controlled the purse-strings and spent all the money for me. I did not get any permission to buy a car or even build a house for myself. Nevertheless, I was allowed to buy cars for others no less than six times.

The God Who Does Not Exist

At university, I was a student of Philosophy. You had to be, if you studied Political Science. I therefore find it highly amusing that, in a discussion about the existence of God, Douglas Anele tries to dazzle me by dropping the names of philosophers like David Hume, Immanuel Kant, and Bertrand Russell.

JESUS Is The Messiah (4)

Jesus healed one leper. Just as his adversaries were trying to decide how to handle this, he then healed ten lepers, all in one go. He hit the ball straight into the court of the Jewish religious establishment. Would they be honest enough to acknowledge to Israel that he is the long awaited Messiah?

Jesus Is The Messiah 3

The message of the birth of Christ was first brought to mere shepherds, sleeping out of doors. “Then the angel said to them, Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.’” (Luke 2:10-11)

JESUS IS THE MESSIAH 2

I wish I had been there as a fly on the wall at the time of Jesus. You had to be there to understand the excitement; the pandemonium Jesus caused among the pastors, bishops and popes of the day. You can cause no greater excitement than by doing the impossible. That is precisely what Jesus did.

The Counterfeit Christian Church 2

Jesus says the kingdom of heaven is like putting yeast in a large portion of dough. (Matthew 13:33).  While pastors with limited understanding of kingdom dynamics see this yeast as beneficial on the grounds that it is designed to promote the rapid numerical growth of the church; those with better insight see it as spiritually counter-productive precisely because it leads to the exponential growth of the church
