No matter How Close



When I was quite little, there was this advert on TV that amused my parents and I about Panadol. Two women were involved but one had the headache and so the friend had to do the job of bringing her the drug.
And then she brought a white tablet that resembled Panadol (probably Paracetamol but without the brand name of PanadolTM and so the woman with the headache refused it and wouldn’t give in whereas the friend insisted since it was a white tablet, and it would solve the headache problem,
then viola!... why shouldn’t it be called or seen as Panadol?
An amusing convo went thus;
C’est ne pas Pandaol..
C’est ne pas se kini?
And at the end, the commercial line went thus; if it is not Panadol, it is not the same thing as Panadol.

Where am I going with this?

For a while, Salt’s post on Being and Not doing Got to me where she said no BUTS…you have to be sure of what you want and what you Know cos people will come and the waters will rise and you might start looking retarded but when You know What you want and What you’ve heard, you’ll never settle for less.

The fact that you’re close to Heaven but not there yet are is different from being there. Jesus told a man that “you’re not far from the Kingdom of God.’’

The fact that its 99.9% doesn’t mean its going to be approximated to 100%. The Hand sanitizers and disinfectants promised us that same percentage and Here we are still battling with germs

The fact that it looks like Gospel, or sounds good doesn’t mean it is from God. Take note.
The devil himself transforms as an angel of Light. He's been here quite long so he knows what he's doing. We're the ones who should be alert cos the Devil goes about looking for who to devour.

I mean c’mon...what impression do you give me when you have a so-called gospel song in your album and that same album contains another song titled. ‘the greatest sex I ever had?’’

Please tell me what relationship has light with darkness or rather, how can Friendship with the world be cool with God when He stated clearly that Friendship with the world is enmity with God.
If any man loves the world, the Love of the father is not in HIM..Period! (Na bible talk am o)

The fact that it is a family tradition or part of culture doesn’t mean God approves. In fact you would be surprised that is what He doesn’t approve of.

For laying aside the commandment of God, you hold the tradition of men…
All too well you reject the commandment of God, that you may keep your tradition
Making the word of God of no effect through your tradition which you have handed down. And many such things you do. Mark 7v9-13

Just because the Guy or Girl talks about God doesn’t mean He knows Him or even has a personal relationship with Him and so that shouldn’t be a go-ahead to marry him or tag Him as God-fearing

The fact that everyone sees it as okay, cool, accepted and the “norm” doesn’t mean God sees it that way. This was one of the things THE SHACK made me see.

The fact that someone calls on a god doesn’t mean He’s calling on the same God as you are. For all we know, so many gods exist. Even Lucifer dons himself as one. And the other ones we classify as myths, people saw them as gods in the past.

Know which God you’re calling and Know which one you serve and correlate with.

There is only one God.

None is good, no…, not one, but God alone.

The fact that people replace Santa with Jesus on Christmas day and forget the real representation of what that day symbolizes doesn’t mean it is OKAY.

And the fact that you’re reading what I’ve written here today doesn’t mean I have everything figured out or perfect either
I’m just a vessel.

Lots of love
