Death & Sickness

Inspiring .

justwordsjm

Death and sickness are inevitable and yet we always seem hurt, emotional and at times get upset when it becomes our experience.

At about 8 years old I lost my grandmother and I cried profusely. Since then I have lost an aunt in 2002 – I didn’t cry; then in 2010 my uncle passed away – I didn’t cry. Now another aunt of mine is extremely ill and in the hospital for over 2 weeks and I keep crying. I realise I prefer death for very personal and selfish reasons than sickness.

Sickness brings such a whirlwind of emotions. Its like watching cricket for me. One minute things seem to be going well and then the West Indies seem to plummet into uncertain failure. Then the hope rises and then falls. This is what happens in certain cases of grave illness. I am certainly not wishing my aunt to die…

THE POWER OF HIS DEATH

Brook Of Inspirations

When Jesus gave up the ghost on the cross, the bible tells us that many of the saints that were dead many years ago were resurrected from their graves and were seen physically by many people (Matthew 27:52). This shows that even the death of Jesus has the power to bring back to life anything that has been pronounced dead in our lives.

The death of Jesus took over power from the kingdom of darkness, and that’s the reason why Jesus could traveled down to the land of the death and preached the Gospel to all those that were dead right from the beginning of the world (1 Peter 3:19). The power of death and grave could not stop Him (Jesus) from doing the works of His Father, and this makes us to understand that nothing can stop us when we are ready to do the work God.

It’s the death…

THE POWER OF HIS DEATH

When Jesus gave up the ghost on the cross, the bible tells us that many of the saints that were dead many years ago were resurrected from their graves and were seen physically by many people (Matthew 27:52). This shows that even the death of Jesus has the power to bring back to life anything that has been pronounced dead in our lives.

The death of Jesus took over power from the kingdom of darkness, and that’s the reason why Jesus could traveled down to the land of the death and preached the Gospel to all those that were dead right from the beginning of the world (1 Peter 3:19). The power of death and grave could not stop Him (Jesus) from doing the works of His Father, and this makes us to understand that nothing can stop us when we are ready to do the work God.

It’s the death of Jesus that gave birth to His resurrection. Like His resurrection, His death also has the power to take away all our infirmities. If His stripes can get us healed of all our diseases (Isaiah 53:5), what will His death do to us? If we believe in the power of His death and that He died for our sakes, we will not die without fulfilling our days on earth. No cancer or any other form of illness can temper with your health or organs if you believe in the power of His death.

Those saints whose dead and decayed bodies were resurrected by the power of His death have been prophesying about the death of Jesus and they totally believed in it before they died. And their death may be as a result of cancer or any other disease, but when Jesus died, just because they believed in the power of His death, that power went down to their graves and healed all their infirmities and regenerated all their dead organs, created new flesh and sinews and they Jacked back to life. That is not all, the power of the death of Jesus also destroyed the gates of their tombs and they emerged looking fresher and younger after the resurrection of Jesus. (Matthew 27:50-53).

All you have to do to break down all obstacles in your life is to believe in the power of the death and resurrection of Jesus. With that, you will conquer every force in hell and no disease will survive in your body.

Right now you’re coming out of any grave the devil has placed you in life by the power of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, in Jesus’ name!

The death and resurrection of Jesus are two things which no force in hell can withstand and comprehend. Right now I decree, that no force in hell can withstand you in life from today, in Jesus’ name!

What you think is a failure will miraculously becomes a success by the power of His death and resurrection, in Jesus’ name! Amen.

God bless you.

Goodluck Harrison.

Sidelined Obama Faces Impossible Task on Immigration

Swampland

Here’s a simple litmus test to gauge the odds of passing immigration reform: the more President Obama is talking about the issue, the better the chance the bill dies.

As the Senate haggled over a sweeping bill to rewrite U.S. immigration policy, Obama lurked in the shadows, eschewing public negotiations and leaving his aides to work Capitol back channels. But now, with a radioactive image among House Republicans, and few tools to tame congressional gridlock, the President is preparing to take a more vocal role.

It is, allies concede, a telling sign that the bill’s fortunes are foundering in the fractious Republican-controlled House — and a symbol of Obama’s vanishing clout just six months into his second term. Democratic officials expect that over the coming weeks Obama will travel across the U.S., likely to strategically important states like Nevada, North Carolina and Texas, to highlight the economic benefits of the…

Obama’s Egypt Test: Just What Is ‘Democracy,’ Anyway?

Swampland

Barack Obama paid his first and still only visit to Egypt in the late spring of 2009. As a new President looking to turn the page on the George W. Bush era, he traveled to Cairo to deliver an address meant to repair America’s relationship with the Muslim world. One subject he covered in the June 1 speech at Cairo University was America’s controversial promotion of democracy in the region. While no country should impose its values on another, Obama said — an implicit acknowledgment that the Iraq war had been viewed that way — he pledged to strongly support existing democratic governments.

But Obama was also careful to note that democracy is about more than casting votes: “We will welcome all elected, peaceful governments — provided they govern with respect for all their people,” Obama explained. “Elections alone do not make true democracy.”

Four years later, those words have…

Seven Thousand Miles Away, But Still Close to Home

The Globetrotting Geek

DSC_0502Of all the out-of-nowhere signs of America that I’ve seen in Japan, this might be the one that took me most by surprise. One of my eleventh graders came to class wearing a Mercyhurst shirt today. Mercyhurst and Duquesne are both in western Pennsylvania, near Pittsburgh, where I grew up. (Pedants will point out that Mercyhurst is too close to Erie, in northwestern PA, to count…in my book, it’s still close enough to Pittsburgh for me to say it’s close to home.) Where my kid got a t-shirt that hails to my home – not even my country or state, but the very city I call my hometown – remains a mystery. It was definitely one of those “Of all the gin joints, in all the towns, in all the world…” moments. Serendipitous things like this make me realize all over again that, even when the planet is vast, the…

Catching Fairies: Midsummer Woodland

Kate Shrewsday

I think, when Shakespeare wrote A Midsummer Night’s Dream, he had strolled in a forest like mine. Perhaps he had strolled in this very forest.

On evenings like this, words fail me. And so does my camera. For an English forest in the heat of midsummer, emerald-green, fairy-enchanted, filled with furtive birds and lazy wingborne creatures: an English forest is simply a fairytale.

Tonight the air was heavy with the perfume of pine and honeysuckle and there were patches of light which must surely have been bewitched. Languid sun shone through the leaves and possessed them, warm wind shimmered each line and detail of emerald so that a personality emerged, right there, in that very patch of light.

And for all the world, its seemed possible that Titania stood behind a tree just out of sight, and Oberon postured beyond the turn in the path.

Days like this: they frustrate…
