IMA-JESUS

JESUS

Ima ima.

Nothing seemed to work before you came.
The overflowing brooks had dried up under the scorching heat from the heartless sun.
Innumerable animals had taken flight after the poisoning of the heart of their keeper.
The snail of joy had crawled away with a sour look.
Mama Bear twib cubs, favour and victory, looked on as their mama guided them away from the human infants
Wondering when next they would get to play with the humans like the creator had commanded them to.
While the man pointed accusatory fingers at Eden, the evil one with a smirk of triumph, went to open the latch that kept the birds of dominon
Laughing out loud as man's rightful pets hovered around before letting out a mournful screech and then leaving.

Jesu Ima ima
Man suffered untold pain due to the fall.
The ground refused to yield a smile until sweat fell upon it as rain.
Little babes refused to come out of their rented apartments unless the cries of their mothers' ascended to the heavens.
Little stains on the pure cassocks were never forgiven until lambs lost their heads.
The beloved nation of the creator wallowed in chains forced on them by the creatures.
Kings were forced into walking while servants rode.
Queens were forced to brush golden tiaras while placing them on the heads of their maids.
The rich was forced to scavenging in dung hills while the jaws of servants worked wonders on the stewed lamb roasts.
The generals were thrown into dungeons where big rats nibbled at their toes and possessions.

Alu!
Taboos ran amuck in the fields of the sons of God
Oxen driving the plough of death and wrecking havoc on every good seed
The city streets became filled with blood;
Hell's secret service laying waste to dreams and saints with street sweepers in hand.

Then, word came through from the streets paved with gold.
The walls built with sapphire and emerald stones bore messages to the walls made with human hands.

"Baba dey come"
"Messiah dey come"

The three word sentence that shattered the eardrums of the evil one.
The morse coded message that was deciphered by the prophet Isaiah.
The single message that kept appearing on the cards of the Tarot players.
The single message that appeared in the entrails of animals split open by the prophets.
The single song of hope that kept on renewing the strenght of the inmates cluttered in the enemy's death camp.

Time passed and people forgot.
Time passed and the enemy forgot.
Till a baby cried.
In a bed of hay, the baby cried.
In the city of Bethlehem, the baby cried.

To a world of hurt, a saviour was born.
To the cheering of angelic hosts, the saviour was born.
To the sneering of earthly hosts, the saviour was dragged to Golgotha
To the jeering of demonic hosts, the saviour was crucified.
With the tearing of temple's veil, the saviour died.

Silence on the first.
Disciples tiptoeing to the grave to witness the miracle.
Hopes slain.
Grief multiplied, they returned home.

Silence on the second.
Pharisees entering the city in grand style to witness the triumph of civil authority.
Hopes raised.
Merriment multiplied, they returned to their castles.

Shouting on the third day.
Hallelujah for the king has risen!
Hallelujah for the saviour has dominated.
Hosanna for the creation is saved!

THE COMPETENCE STATE (part A)

Most people go through life without discovering where their fast ball is and what their talents are,also not develop it through their life-stay. Their skills and abilities lay dormant without a nurture and thus these inherent potentials never get to serve them. You have something that you brought to the universe and it's quite tragic how you go to the grave without letting the universe have a feel of them. If you decide to drop your buckets where you are and develop your gifts you will never ever be without. You will develop a strong sense of happiness and a larger vision.  We all need some area of our lives where we can have a feeling of competence that will also cut across the minds of everyone who comes across us. You need a load of strength of character to digest all you need to  know to build your competence in an area. In this era of accelerated change, overwhelming complexity and tremendous competition,as you begin to expand in developing your skill you will always be in control of your destiny.
The human spirit  is wired so powerfully  it can tune-off the critics both in and outside. Being relentless quickens the manifestation of this state enhancing the full activation of creativity.
Now this is because life sometimes get tired of whipping you and so just let you go.
The fact that you can't get out of life alive is the sole reason why you should always try to have a good time.
Live your life with passion, treating everyday like its gonna be your last day with some hard-drive.
Holding on through life with our emergency breaks always on is such a negative energy that makes us carry all potentials unto the grave without defeats and keeps us back from releasing them which is not good enough for the universe.
If we knew better we will surely do better. It is better to be prepared for an opportunity and not have one, than to have one and not be prepared.
