What Body Shall Enter Heaven?

Someone may ask, “How are the dead raised? With what kind of body will they come?”  How foolish! 

What you sow does not come to life unless it dies. When you sow, you do not plant the body that will be, but just a seed, perhaps of wheat or of something else. But God gives it a body as he has determined, and to each kind of seed he gives its own body.  

Not all flesh is the same: People have one kind of flesh, animals have another, birds another and fish another. There are also heavenly bodies and there are earthly bodies; but the splendor of the heavenly bodies is one kind, and the splendor of the earthly bodies is another. The sun has one kind of splendor, the moon another and the stars another; and star differs from star in splendor.

This Piercing Question: When Are You Getting Married?

At a certain stage in life, it will be required of you to say your marital status to concerned parties. Not because it’s a requirement, but it is everyone’s anxiety to ‘just know’.

I fall a victim this weekend; a victim on the asking end.

I was attending my friend’s wedding in Nairobi. During the reception time, I happened to sit next to one Mercy [not her real name].

After some moments of chatting, I ‘fortunately’ made this mistake of posing THE question. 

“When ‘you sayin I do?”

She assumed she didn’t get me talking, looking straight ahead. I knew I’d stepped on a live wire. I kept quiet.

After some moments of torturing silence, for some reason, she accepted to open up to me. We had to move aside.

Why It's Hard Finding True Love

At my age (kindly, don't inquiring how old I am) a thought of who I will marry is likely to pop out more often, especially when I came across people I feel "qualified" according to my mark list. I just realized, behind my mind, I've been carrying out a serious rating, a practice I found to be true to a good number of guys.

You’ll realize that you connect with people or rather find them favorable via three main avenues: Eye, mind and heart.

Considering these 3 avenues, there can emerge 8 possible forms of acceptance you may need to consider. Let’s examine the table below; a tick means you're attracted to a person physically (eye), Character-wise (mind) and spiritually (Spirit). An X means otherwise:

Back To The Image Owner!

One time, the Pharisees approached Jesus to test him into a trap asking Him if it was lawful for them to give tribute unto Caesar, or no.

But Jesus perceiving their craftiness, he answered, “Why tempt ye me? Shew me a penny. Whose image and superscription hath it?”

They answered Caesar's.

And He said unto them, “Render therefore unto Caesar the things which be Caesar's and unto God the things which be God's.”

Youth Dilemma: Appearance Vs Character

I came across this thrilling article by Wanjiru Kihusa as she narrated how wrong she was on her view of a perfect man. Looking back at the list of qualities she badly wanted in a ‘husband’, she could only conclude, “I never got the man I wanted. No I didn’t.”

The good, old advice to “go for character, not the looks” is obvious and we’ve heard it.  None can deny that’s true. What really baffles me is why it is so hard to put it into practice.

I’m a victim.

The Warrior And The Arrow

Youth radicalization. High rise of crime. Insecurity. Drug abuse. Homosexuality and lesbianism. Poor marriages and divorce.

This is the sweet song around the globe, sung around the ears of the young generation. Parents can only cry out the pain of raising up a kid only to become a jihad. Governments can only arrest and kill a few their long arm can reach. The society and religious organizations can only watch helplessly from afar.

Easter Is All About Redemption

Being an Easter, I thought it better we briefly focus on the main reason for this season. Right from the fall of Adam and Eve, all the events unfolding were pointed at one thing: God's plan and desire to re-poses the very humans he created.

In my article "Identity: The Source of Fights Within You", I've discussed why God ain't ready to have anyone in hell. You carry His identity, and is ready to fight to redeem it. basically, that's why Jesus came - to save us.

In few words, I'd love to explain the 3 simple steps (or rather the 3 requirements)  for salvation and what you need to be a conqueror. 

Is Having A Home Church Really Necessary?

With the evolution of TV, radio and online ministries, most of us can now comfortably get blessed right in our bedrooms with a sermon from our favorite preacher. We can sing along with great live or recorded music even from our phones! I can confess I've personally had amazing moments with God in the house, a lone!

We can worship from anywhere at any time, in a group or alone.

Then the big question goes, " Do we really need to have a place we call a home church?

God Did It For Me, He Will Do It For You!

Deborah Gesare, A teacher at
All Saints Cathedral Primary School,
Nairobi.
The plans of the mind belongs to man but the answer of the tongue comes from God.

My name is Deborah Gesare. I recall my last years in high school after working hard for 4 years and expecting to pass very well. I was, and still I am very bright. I ‘badly’ desired to take a course in environmental studies or, at worst, tourism later at University.

The moment came when I was to gather my energies and score to my best. But then I was hit with a serious mental blackout that allowed me neither to read nor just stay awake. In fact, up to date,  I have never understood what it was. I only know one thing: God performed a miracle on me.

This took my parents to a lot of panic and I remember being rushed overnight to Mukumu hospital where I was diagnosed with NO disease.

How Well Do You Know His Family?

No strings attached, but I often find myself begin an article from a man’s point of view – just ‘cause I’m a man. Today let’s be fair and have the title from the ladies point of view; Come 'on guys - it's valentine's day!

But you can as well ask 'How Well Do You Know Her Family?' LOL. 

One of the biggest challenges that has hit the institution of marriage is the fact that most young people begin this crucial journey without the involvement of their families, not even the parents. And, that’s a real problem.

Obstacles Won’t Overcome The Love For My People!

Mr. Job Nyangeya Bwomanga
A good number of young people, when they relocate to overseas, not only ‘forget’ their native languages, but also, in a strange way, forget their homeland. This is not the case with one Job Nyangeya Bwomanga.

From the discussion I heard with him over Skype, it was clear that nothing could stop his willingness and burning passion to transform the livelihood of his kinsmen.

Mr. Nyangeya, whose soul desire is serving and giving back to the society, lives in Texas with his wife and two children. Five years ago he dreamed of 3 projects that are bringing a great impact back in Nyamia and Kisii counties.

No, This World Is Fair!

How?! When the standard eight pupils who did exemplary well miss allocation in National Secondary schools?

When a job which is rightfully yours is given to too far unqualified fellow?

When a playground for poor students is grabbed by notoriously rich figures?

…and how can we explain the incidents of the ‘less-educated’ acquire more wealth than ‘degree-owners’?

Yea, this world is so fair. There are a few good lies we’ve believed that make us think the universe is completely against us. Let me explain.
