Poem: Reaching The Promised Land

An elder's advice:

I Stand a little Amazed,
When All I do is phaze,
All those shiny promises from my face,
To see through the future like an open lace.4

I stand a little amazed,
When I cross life's perplexed maze,
To view across the blue sea,7
That which my future is eager to see.

I stand a little amazed,
When across the sea, I paced
To rehearse my future's echo
In stanzas of sweet melo'.12

I stand a little amazed,
As I rehearse joyfully, to find,14
Choruses of beauty, that suits my kind,
Leading zealously fast into my promised land.

Repost: Nigeria, The Road Uncharted


My country is still growing. But I wonder if we actually needed growth at this time or something else.
When a kid is born, she is nursed and cared for. Care from parents is for life but at some points there are some certain things that are expected to be seen on and in the life of the growing baby. With these things she will have to loose some of the care of her parents.

Basically at puberty, she grows chest and birth two twins that follow it. She also grows inwardly to accommodate a baby in her. In and Out examined! The important thing about what I've just stated is that they are not just growth or grown but a joint venture of growth and Development.




Bring it home then, can we say that Nigeria is actually adding years with development? Sometimes that question seem to be a personal question demanding personal answers. But all the same, look at HER and give a honest answer.
God has led us thus far in politics, the son of democracy. But I don't seem to see maturity in the way we play politics in Nigeria.

For sixteen years we haven't learned to conduct elections.
For sixteen years we have not come to understand politics as a game that must have a definite winner.
For sixteen years we have not learned to avoid partisanship and ethnic ideologies after elections to come at round tables to discuss National development.
For sixteen years we have not learnt to focus on human development rather than perishable commodities.

Till when should we look inwards and say that we are 60% at it? (Just maybe)

The road uncharted is the road of CHANGE! Now I don't mean the must canvassed but not at the moment attained Change. It is the change that concerns the youth. 
We have been told countless ages ago that the youths are the leaders of tommorrow but we are yet to see the Tommorrow. Development can never be attained in our present state of political recycling. Recycling leaders that has lost all vibes, all forms of present day feelings. We keep bringing leaders into every sector of our nation, leaders who are way backward in their thoughts. It does not matter what he or she has done in time past. Today and Tommorrow aren't the same.
Leaders of today should be installed for true Change to begin.



Happy Soaring!

The Nameless Woman at the Well

All hail Alphasoars . . .

How is the year going abi running at your end? Just yesterday we celebrated the New Year and now we are celebrating the end of January. For those on a white collar jobs, it is always a pleasure to see the 28 day of every month. It brings smilesssss, Hahahah. I know many people can relate very well.
 


A tired Jesus needed to rest. He has need for food - He is hungry and thirsty. The almost helpless disciples have abandoned him without a company to fetch victuals. He is sitting weary at his great-grand-father's well, anticipating a miracle to himself (Someone to give him water from the well), that's going to be a life saving miracle too.

Someone is already asking me if Jesus actually needed the water to keep fit, have strength, can't he just command supernatural strength?
Well, I don't have your answers yet, let's concentrate!

And within minutes of anticipation, his much needed energy giving food arrives; a soul to feed his thirsty heart for man's eternal salvation. He cannot wait but to grasp this opportunity. He already knew what women want; "Tell me something new and hidden" is always a curiosity spirit that must be satisfied is you want to get to a woman's heart. (Did I reveal a secret?).

Lord Help!!! Our Churches Run the Highest Cabal in the World!

If you hear me mention half the name of your church as you read on, then you can complete the rest for me, otherwise, no church is in focus as I hit the keys on my keyboard. Just what every other person has noticed but might not want to say, write or query. And that might be because of lack of opportunity to express such views or the criticism it might bring.

The church as I had always known is basically culled from a Greek word which means called out or called out ones. In essence, it has no physical attribution to things such as buildings. But for the smooth gathering of the called out people for "Fellowship", "Braking of Bread" and "Prayers", there has been need for physical place of gathering.

In a sense, you are not been called out from where you were to start loafing about, no. There is a place that the most High has put his name and there, you must gather to receive commands on your lines of action.

After Christ left earth, the disciples decided to build themselves another country, a separated place where they will just stay and hide from what is going on in the world. The people that have lands, quickly sold the lands, those that have occultist materials burnt them. They brought all they have to the place of gathering and 'laid' what they've brought before the Apostles feet. From here, foods were bought and was cooked, served equally. Dedicated men were set aside for this mission of whom Stephen was among.

Later, they were found wanting. They have left preaching and were serving tables. Persecution came, they were dispersed. Every man preached where he found himself. 
First lesson, they were not meant to acquire any form of colony for themselves to live in since they are not to just stay at a particular place.



At the mount of transfiguration, Jesus took three men with him and these were from the inner circle. After the incident that shook them, Peter made a statement, "Master, it is good for us to be here" (In his heart, he has alienated the other nine. Maybe to him, they weren't holy enough since Jesus didn't bother bringing them to witness his transfiguration), "... Let us make three tabernacles here, (He was already trying to settle at the mount without the others) one for you, one for Moses and the other for Elijah". The Master never consented since that wasn’t in the plans.

We are having a real issue in our churches today. Firstly, it is a matter of doctrine. Everyone thinks he is the right man, speaking directly the mind of God. He might decide to focus on whatsoever theme he pleases. Be it Prosperity, Righteousness, Holiness, Heaven, love or whatever he believes is his 'calling'. But maybe that's not the issue here. What's the issue then?

Our churches today have alienated themselves from the world in every sense. They have gone back to 'before the persecution'. 
They build cathedrals; people sell their land or give it up to 'churches', sell their cars and bring in the money to the church.
They are 'inside the churches now' (staying), braking bread daily, they are having internal fellowships daily, they are having prayers daily. Is that not what happened before the persecution came and they were all scattered?

In our beloved country, time is coming and every denomination is going to be a country of its own. How do I mean?
They have their own 'named cathedrals', they have their own schools and hospitals, they have their own transport systems, their markets and economics systems are streamlined to suit their members and none members find them uncomfortable, they won't have any option than to back off. Are Christians of the twenty first century not calling for another round of persecution?
