WHAT IS THE VALUE OF LIFE?

WHAT IS THE VALUE OF LIFE?

A little boy went to his old grandpa and asked, "What's the value of life?" The grandpa gave him one stone and said, "Find out the value of this stone, but don't sell it." The boy took the stone to an Orange Seller and asked him what its cost would be. The Orange Seller saw the shiny stone and said, "You can take 12 oranges and give me the stone." The boy apologized and said that the grandpa has asked him not to sell it. He went ahead and found a vegetable seller. "What could be the value of this stone?" he asked the vegetable seller. The seller saw the shiny stone and said, "Take one sack of potatoes and give me the stone." The boy again apologized and said he can't sell it.Further ahead, he went into a jewellery shop and asked the value of the stone.The jeweler saw the stone under a lens and said, "I'll give you 1 million for this stone." When the boy shook his head, the jeweler said, "Alright, alright, take 2 24karat gold necklaces, but give me the stone." The boy explained that he can't sell the stone. Further ahead, the boy saw a precious stone's shop and asked the seller the value of this stone. When the precious stone's seller saw the big ruby, he lay down a red cloth and put the ruby on it. Then he walked in circles around the ruby and bent down and touched his head in front of the ruby. "From where did you bring this priceless ruby from?" he asked. "Even if I sell the whole world, and my life, I won't be able to purchase this priceless stone." Stunned and confused, the boy returned to the grandpa and told him what had happened. "Now tell me what is the value of life, grandpa? "Grandpa said, "The answers you got from the Orange Seller, the Vegetable Seller, the Jeweler & the Precious Stone's Seller explain the value of our life...You may be a precious stone, even priceless, but, people will value you based on their financial status, their level of information, their belief in you, their motive behind entertaining you, their ambition, and their risk taking ability. But don't fear, you will surely find someone who will discern your true value."Respect yourself. Believe in yourself. Stay focus. Don't sell yourself cheap. You are Unique. No one can Replace you! God bless you..Beautiful piece it makes sense  The Value of 'Time': I hope you have 'Time' to read this before it is too late. Sometimes little things means SO much to certain people!! A young man learns what's most important in life from the guy next door. Over the phone, his mother told him, “Mr. Belser died last night. The funeral is Wednesday." Memories flashed through his mind like an old newsreel as he sat quietly remembering his childhood day , "Jack, did you hear me?" "Oh, sorry, Mom. Yes, I heard you. It's been so long since I thought of him. I'm sorry, but I honestly thought he died years ago," Jack said..."Well, he didn't forget you. Every time I saw him he'd ask how you were doing. He'd reminisce about the many days you spent over 'his side of the fence' as he put it," Mom told him. "I loved that old house he lived in," Jack said "You know, Jack, after your father died, Mr. Belser stepped in to make sure you had a man's influence in your life," she said. "He's the one who taught me carpentry," he said. "I wouldn't be in this business if it weren't for him. He spent a lot of time teaching me things he thought were important. Mom, I'll be there for the funeral," Jack said. As busy as he was, he kept his word. Jack caught the next flight to his hometown. Mr. Belser's funeral was small and uneventful. He had no children of his own, and most of his relatives had passed away. The night before he had to return home, Jack and his Mom stopped by to see the old house next door one more time. Standing in the doorway, Jack paused for a moment. It was like crossing over into another dimension, a leap through space and time. The house was exactly as he remembered. Every step held memories- every picture, every piece of furniture. Jack stopped suddenly..."What's wrong, Jack?" his Mom asked "The box is gone," he said "What box?" Mom asked. "There was a small gold box that he kept locked on top of his desk. I must have asked him a thousand times what was inside. All he'd ever tell me was ’the thing I value most,'" Jack said. It was gone. Everything about the house was exactly how Jack remembered it, except for the box. He figured someone from the Belser family had taken it. "Now I'll never know what was so valuable to him," Jack said. "I better get some sleep. I have an early flight home, Mom. It had been about two weeks since Mr. Belser died. Returning home from work one day Jack discovered a note in his mailbox. "Signature required on a package. No one at home. Please stop by the main post office within the next three days," the note read. Early the next day Jack retrieved the package. The small box was old and looked like it had been mailed a hundred years ago. The handwriting was difficult to read, but the return address caught his attention. "Mr. Harold Belser" it read. Jack took the box out to his car and ripped open the package. There inside was the gold box and an envelope. Jack's hands shook as he read the note inside. "Upon my death, please forward this box and its contents to Jack Bennett. It's the thing I valued most in my life." A small key was taped to the letter. His heart racing, as tears filled his eyes, Jack carefully unlocked the box. There inside he found a beautiful gold pocket watch. Running his fingers slowly over the finely etched casing, he unlatched the cover. Inside he found these words engraved: "Jack, Thanks for your time! -Harold Belser." "The thing he valued most was... My time" Jack held the watch for a few minutes, then called his office and cleared his appointments for the next two days. "Why?" Janet, his assistant asked. "I need some time to spend with my son," he said. "Oh, by the way, Janet, thanks for your time!" Think about this. You may not realize it, but it's 100% true.1. At least 15 people in this world love you in some way..2 A smile from you can bring happiness to anyone, even if they don't like you.3 Every night, SOMEONE thinks about you before they go to sleep.4. You mean the world to someone.5. If not for you, someone may not be living.6. You are special and unique.7. When you think you have no chance of getting what you want, you probably won't get it, but if you trust God to do what's best, and wait on His time, sooner or later, you will get it or something better.8. When you make the biggest mistake ever, something good can still come from it.9. When you think the world has turned its back on you, take a look: you most likely turned your back on the world.10. Someone that you don't even know exists loves you.11. Always remember the compliments you received. Forget about the rude remarks.12. Always tell someone how you feel about them; you will feel much better when they know and you'll both be happy.13. If you have a great friend, take the time to let them know that they are great.MARRIAGE: Marriage is the only school where you get the Certificate before you start.

I have been born again for almost 1 year and I have won many people to Christ, but why have you not recommended me to join others to go for missions work in the northern States of the country... "His singlet was torn... And with his zeal, he was crying profusely...My father did not know what to say... The young man kept crying:" Pastor, why are you doing this to me... Why are you doing this to me? "My father told him: "Nna, I know very well that you want to serve God... But you are the only son of your mother and your father is late... If anything happens to you, who will look after your mother and younger ones?... The boy started crying the more... "Pastor, I am the only son and yet I was an arm robber... I am the only son, yet, I was attending meetings in the midnight with native doctors, where many of friends could not wake up alive after diabolically fortifying ourselves against police bullets... " " Pastor, what would have happened to my mother if I had died in one of those armed robbery attacks? Who would have taken care of her? If I risked my life when I was serving Satan, why will I not risk it now that I am serving Jesus Christ? "My father was speechless for almost 30minutes... And it was not long, we saw tears rolling down his eyes...He held the young man and both of them were crying together... How can I forget such scenes that God allowed to play out before my eyes? ... My father recommended him to join some missionaries that came in the area for missions work... The day he was leaving with them, the mother and his younger ones were crying... Knowing that they might not see him again, both live or dead... But I can still remember that excitement on his face... Lord, how can I forget? Brother, let us go to our Bible schools and listen to the conversation of those young men and women who have joined ministry and you will know that many of them have no single passion for the lost... They are just getting ready to rent halls in the city where they will be rolling out posters and handbills, laying greedy hands on people, collecting offering and tithe. That's all in their hearts. Congratulations for your big auditorium...
I am happy for your 10th time services... But if heaven cannot find such men in your church,... Young men and women who will say: "Lets go to that village and tell them that Jesus is no more in the grave... Even If we don't have to come back alive... Let it be so..."
If you don't have such calibre of members among your congregation, then, sir, with due respect, it's a big shame! .This end time agenda has no need of you and your kind! A Muslim suicide bomber doesn't need tithe and offering to carry out a bloody assignment, in defence of his faith .They don't need adverts or media stunts..But here, we have young men who are in the pulpit, being driven by tithe, offering and honorarium.... If there is no 5 star hotel reservation, they will not honour the invitation to preach ...And yet, they are General Overseers... Overseeing passionless men and women who are like them... Where as, their mates in Islam has burnt their school certificates, refused juicy contracts, abandoned wonderful jobs and everyday they are sleeping in the bush and starving for months, receiving trainings, how to carry out terrorist attacks, all in defence of belief. And we are here looking for churches where they will use convoy to come and pick us up from the airport. And you wonder why people feel like vomiting when they hear them calling you a voice in the land. A voice because you went to a program and stole committed members from your host church and you came back and gave them positions in the choir, sowing different uniforms for them every Sunday. None of them can quote any scripture. They have not gone for evangelism for any day, after many years of following you. All of them were members you stole and now you are using juju to keep them from running away. And they are calling you a voice in the land! .What a ridicule! What a noise!  Brother, if this is the generation that will usher in a move of God in our days, then, those who have not forgotten what they saw in the church in the 80s and 90s must not keep quiet in a time like this. The greatest hindrance of revival in our time is not Islam. The pulpit in our time is the greatest enemy of the expected move of God  in our days. If not for the decline of truth on the pulpits in our time, long ago, we would have seen what we saw in the days of our fathers. And now we are blaming Muslim fanatics, who are defending with their lives what they believe in. When else are we going to see young men from our churches, after hearing our messages, getting so angry in the spirit that they make up their minds to convert 10 unbelievers to Christianity every month month? And the next place you will see them will be in camps or mountains, preparing, praying for Power? But how can we hear such when the only thing we teach them is about how to be rich and how to suspect detect enemies?  I am tired of hearing testimonies of miracle jobs some of our ladies slept with company directors to get. I am tired of seeing car dedications my brothers used fraudulent businesses to buy. When are we going to start dedicating converted souls on our Sunday mornings?
Lord, where are all the men that saw what we saw in the days of our fathers? This is not the time to keep quiet. This is not the time to care about who likes or hates you. If there is a time to beg for pulpit, soldier, it is not in a time like this! No pulpit hosted John the Baptist. They preached against him... That He was old fashioned... And that he was envying them who were running 10 times services. That because he doesn't get any like or comment on his Facebook wall, that he is jealous of them that have huge online followership.. That because he is not anointed and that is why nobody was hosting him in their churches.But brother, when his time came and he began to roar from the wilderness, those demonic General Overseers who were using marine powers to run ministry knew that indeed, in every generation, God has a breed He is preparing .Yes, they knew that "there was a man sent from God". Man of God, if you were sent from God, why are you allowing yourself to be influenced by men who were 'sent from Bible schools' ? Some of the men you are competing with in ministry were 'sent from demonic covens in some parts of Africa' . If we came from God, let us look more for God... He will soon show up. You are almost getting to the time when members of many 'mega'  churches will be secretly and openly coming to you, to hear this gospel from your mouth. Because they would have gotten tired of fake testimonies that leaves them powerless and very vulnerable. Men who have not bowed to baal are very few in our days. Men who have not sold out their souls for mammon are rare to find now that we are here. God depends on you for this end time work... Why are you bothered because someone somewhere is calling you names online? . Churches are everywhere around us, yet, there is a spiritual famine in Africa. The power of the gospel is suffering bankruptcy in our time. This is not the same gospel the apostles preached. Something has happened to the Word of God in our mouths. We are only showing the form of godliness, but hell has hijacked the power thereof. And in our carnality, we are celebrating strange Fires. Polluted Fire! Moribund Fire! But brother, I know that God will never leave Africa this way!  If the pulpit has failed, then,, He will bypass us and go down to the pews. And raise people for Himself. If our pews have become so frozen, He will go outside... He will look for drunkards and prostitutes. He will get hold of witches and wizards. And those arm robbers on the highways, He will Clean them up and fill them up with Himself and use them mightily in this end time. Yes, if those who came out from Bible schools are now using their certificates to raise only funds, God will bypass them and use those who has not gone to Bible schools. This is the most critical time since the world began. Islam is preparing to take over nations,. They are putting funds together which  they will use to buy churches and pay their staff off. Brother, in few years from now, if there is no genuine revival, many of our members today would have become Muslims. You will see many pastors who will convert their churches into mosques, for a huge financial reward. That time is not far. Has it not even started? When a pastor is collecting powers to grow his church from a Muslim native doctor, is that not handing over the Fire to the children of the bond woman? The days we are in is terrible God. God knows and that is why He is raising an army that will stand to defend the gospel that was handed over to us, even if they have to lose everything for it...That young man came back from the missions field, after a year, and later joined the Bible school... Became a pastor and God used him to win communities for Jesus... Before my eyes, I saw God using him to sack evil spirits out from villages... His name became a terror in that area, to the point that deities began to complain about how his presence in the community had rendered them powerless... Halaluya ! Those are the kind of testimonies we were hearing everyday in the days of our fathers that we want to be hearing again in our time... But alas, here is Ichabod ! Imagine if every church in every community can boast of 10 of such members! Imagine when many of our followers would have gotten broken enough, by God, that they don't mind what they lose again for God's sake... Terrorists will no more be bombing our churches.. Because they would have known that already our churches are filled with people who are ready to die, anytime for the gospel ... You don't have to waste your bomb on a man who is already dead! But, why they will keep threatening to kill us is because they know that we love our cars and landed properties more than the CHRIST we say that died for us... Prophet Mohammed was not killed on the Cross shamefully, yet, they can die for him publicly... What would have happened if their prophet Mohammed was crucified on the cross? But where are the men and women who claims that Jesus died for them? Oh Sister, it is time to take our Christian life to another level.... It is time to get 'fanatical'  about this Kingdom thing... Enough of the prayer topics of: "God give me this and do that for me!" This weekend, take your friends to the next Street and preach the gospel... Next week, continue with it... Why are we ashamed to tell people about the Man that conquered the grave? Why can't we preach about the man that created the heaven and the earth?... Mohammed did not do any single miracle, but his followers are dying for him... He did not raise anybody from the dead... He died and that was his end... Yet, they can give everything to spread his belief... How can we be ashamed of Jesus that spoke to the storm and their was peace? He opened the blind eyes... He interrupted funerals and raised the dead back to life... Is He not enough to tell people about? Did He not do enough to make you let everybody that knows you know that you are not ashamed of the gospel? When will you be done with hiding from your friends when you want to speak in tongues, so that they will not laugh at you? Brother, why are you ashamed of identifying with the Man who is the hope of the whole world?  As for me, I am done with religion, till I die.. I cannot stand Christianity by church sticker alone any more ... Jesus did not die for you to only be attending choir rehearsals and changing uniforms every Sunday.... I hope God is not looking at you from heaven now and regretting why He did not let those people  that died of accident to replace you since you are useless to Him on earth... Many in the hospital now, with few days to live are begging and crying, if God can give them a little more time, that they will preach this gospel under the rain and sun... And they mean it... Brother, you that is healthy, what will God be saying about you when He sees that they are begging you to go to church? The time is early enough to ask God for mercy and for Him to revive His walk in your life. God is looking for people that will risk their lives for Him in our time... Let it not be that He is preparing someone who is at the point of death in the hospital bed to come and replace you.... This is scary... But it is a serious matter! Have you not played so much with the opportunities God has given you? How much longer do we have to be in sin for grace to abound? The Holy Spirit is speaking to you now... He is reminding you of your distance from God... Imagine if you had died in your sins yesterday morning... You would have gone to hell,  and stay there, from now till the next 2billion years... And yet, that will be just the beginning... Sister, don't be locked out of grace further... Don't postpone any longer the hour of your salvation... Right now, hearken to the voice of mercy ...  And where you are sitting is good enough to kneel down and ask God for a revival ... I  am very sure that He will clean you up and give you a new.... Lord, let there be revival of true soul winning and genuine christian living In Jesus Mighty Name." STRUGGLING WITH SOME SECRET SINS: There is something glorious about your future God will show you, you will not need your pastor to keep preaching holiness message to you daily...When you see a girl singing in the choir, yet, from the choir, she keeps sexual appointments, check that girl, she has not seen anything yet about her future...When you see a young boy who dresses to church, to seduce those small girls to bed and his mates will be clapping for him, check that boy, he has a spiritual eye problem...He hasn't seen anything about his future yet...If you do it again and again and again, God will forgive you again and again and again...But, while He is busy forgiving you, angels are busy searching for some one else heaven will use to replace you ...What separates men before God is not how long they can pray or how much scriptures they know...The value God places on people is not determined by the position they occupy in the church... But how much they can bear for His Name sake...Some times, He allows your salary to be delayed, to know if you will start stealing in your office...Sometimes, He allows some lose ladies to start suggesting sex with you, to know if you have grown... But unfortunately, you still fall again ....Yes, He will forgive.... But, you will still remain in the same class in the school of glory...Decision separates men..There is an OIL that comes with separation...The weight of a man is buried in the decisions he makes when no one is watching him ...Many times, God allows you to be lonely so that you can be holy...Forget this public revival messages all of us are preaching... Many are still behind in the school of glory... Not because they chose to, but because they still don't want to pay the price of separation... If it takes a man to be married to be responsible, we will not have many married irresponsible men scattered all over the place who are renting houses for their girlfriends, while their wives are still at home.... When a man is due for marriage, he should get married... But don't tell me to get married because you want me to escape fornication...Marriage is not an escape route into a responsible life... What you cannot control when you are single has the power to control you even when you are married ...No matter how beautiful your wife will be, you will still see other beautiful ladies....Teach me how to die to flesh sir...Teach me that I can live alone in a house alone and yet, I will not think rubbish thoughts... Joseph was not married before he ran away naked from Portipha's wife bedroom ...It was not a marital ring on his finger that made him refuse that gesture....But because he knew the future God has planned for Him will be messed up by a single decision....I want to raise a generation of young boys and girls that will love God where no one is seeing them ...I want to raise a breed that doesn't appear holy only when they see their parents or their pastors... This holiness by dressing is sending people from choir seats to hell fire...They are dying in secret sins, yet, they have none to cry to, because, once they confess, they will be stigmatized...Consequently, we are raising a generation that is speaking in tongues on their way to hell...Sister, singing in choir doesn't confer value on men before God, but decision...Stop attaching your spiritual growth on night vigils where you go and flog enemies ...God is waiting for you when no one is there...If you can succeed there, you will be a commander of the supernatural...The greatest tool against the end time church is the adulteration of the message of grace...They teach you that God will forgive...But they will not teach you that God will not promote you to another class...No matter how you love your child, you will not give him your car key to use when you know he has not perfected his driving...As long as that child is finding it hard to drive perfectly, he will keep trekking to school...There is someone reading this posts now, heaven is saying that you are due for manifestation, but you have not made a decision yet...You are still afraid of hunger....You don't want to starve....You are ashamed of what people will say when you stop sleeping with men for money to pay bills...They have even told you that there is no young person like you that doesn't have sexual partners..That human beings were wired by God to fall and rise again...Several times, you have made moves to delete all those phone numbers that connect you to your vomits...But you have been afraid of the days of loneliness...You don't want to miss those cuddles...You don't know if you can ever look into his eyes and tell him: "No more sex"...Even if he accepts, you are afraid that you might never cope...Sister, don't let weekend orgasm rob you of eternal value...Your enemy is no more that witch in the village.... But any man that is making you comfortable in a place of rebellion with God ...Don't be in church singing in the choir and God will go to the nearest hotel and catch a prostitute, wash her, clean her and fill her with His power...I know you have been trying to make amends ...You have answered altar calls several times, yet, you still fall back, even more deeper ...Some of us were there not too long ago...Singing in choir, leading in powerful prayer sections, yet, battling with addictions...Worse of all we were afraid to tell anyone...Because, people around would never have understood how much we were trying to be better ... We bought different anointing oil, from different men of God, yet, we were not free...We even afflicted ourselves with fastings...Yet, nothing changed ...Until we encountered the Word of God.....When Jesus said that " We are made clean by the Words that I speak unto you..."We began to read and study the Bible...Like Job, we began to esteem God's Word above our necessary food...Gradually, addictions began to lose its grip...God began to change our appetites...Until today, the darkness is past, the true Light now shineth ...Brother, I want to recommend you to the Word of God....The Word of God will settle that lust issue...Don't go and rush into marriage if you are not ready, because you want to avoid temptation...The spirit of lust does not respect wedding ring...Especially now that our sisters who are still in Babylon even prefer having it with married men ...There are still single guys who are serving God in spirit and in truth...5 chapters of the bible every day and 1 hour prayers or more...You will see that your mind will stop going to those thoughts ...Jesus did not say it is easy...But He said that with God all things are possible ...Your heart is beating faster now as you are reading this...You are wondering if you will ever get free from the things you are struggling with...Friend, that God that did it for us, He will show up on your case...Receive grace to feast on the Word from now....In Jesus Name...
