WORDS OF HOPE: Earth and World | By Olisaeloka Kingsley

I was preparing my prayer points for a vigil in church last week when the LORD led me to a scripture and showed me a revelation I had never seen before (it's amazing how we can read the bible a million times and see different revelations each time we do or well, not even see a thing!). The Psalmist says:

Psalm 119:18 - Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.

And so I came over to Matthew (while preparing my prayer points) and saw something:

Matthew 5:13 - Ye are the salt of the EARTH...
Matthew 5:14 - Ye are the light of the WORLD... 

The earth and the world here can not mean the same thing from a scriptural perspective. The Psalmist says the EARTH IS THE LORD'S AND THE FULNESS THEREOF; THE WORLD, AND THEY THAT DWELL THEREIN.

So you see, while the EARTH is a physical structure that can be touched and seen, the world is actually not a physical structure per se but refers to the sectors of operation and administration upon the earth such as: the political world, the entertainment world, the commerce world, the science and technology world, the medical world, and so on.

Satan is the god of the world not the earth! That is why in the great commission of our Lord Jesus we are sent to the world not the earth! 

Mark 16:15 - ...Go ye into all the world...

We are to dispel the darkness satan has introduced into the world with the light of God. This is an individual responsibility to be fulfilled wherever we have been sent to!

The church on the other hand is the salt of the entire earth...this is a cooperate responsibility! Salt preserves whatever it is sprinkled over. Jesus has sprinkled the church over the earth to preserve it from 'going bad'. But it's obvious the church is failing to some degree in fulfilling this responsibility; little wonder the earth is gradually caving in under the pressures of the repeated floods, infernos, hurricanes and earthquakes we are both seeing and hearing of in diverse areas of the earth. The earth is dying...

God says:

2 Chronicles 7:14 -  If my people which are called by name (the Church) shall humble themselves and pray, seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sins and will heal their land. 

God want's to heal the land of the new plagues and diseases that keep surfacing every now and then as well as heal the land of the natural disasters that are claiming the lives of young and old alike. God wants to heal the land of every form of evil in our midst. But we as the church need to...PRAY, and now at that!

You say what if we don't pray? What would happen? After all God is a merciful God! Let me tell you what would happen! You see God at one time sent a prophet by the name Jonah to a great city called Nineveh; they were practically drooling in sin and iniquity (as we can see even today). However when Jonah gave them the warning of the LORD they repented with fastings (everyone of them right from the King to the least person, even animals were made to fast!) and judgment was averted. However some years down the line we see in the book of Nahum that Nineveh still ended up being destroyed! 

Question: So what was the point all along of Jonah bringing the word of the LORD to them you may ask? It's simple, the generation that hearkens to word of the LORD is the generation that will be spared!

Church, the time to pray is now...

I love you, God bless you...

Yours in spirit and in truth,

5 Tips to Preventing Work place Accident

Image result for workplace accident in nigeria

As much as we all want to work, earn a living and live comfortably; nobody would want to be involved in workplace accident. However, there are several hazards we face at work and accident at work becomes inevitable at some point. Nevertheless, if certain attitudes and knowlege are in place, there is a high likeliness that work place attitude may/can be prevented.                           Here are a few tips to help you prevent accidents at work:
 1. Have a Zero-Accident MindsetYou are more likely to have an accident on your hands if you start off believing that accidents are inevitable. This is because such a view tends to make you have a laid back attitude to safety.
It is better to begin by assuming that all accidents can be prevented, and work towards eliminating all possible hazards.
 2. Be Careful and Alert to Possible Work space HazardsDisorderly work spaces could put workers in harm’s way. Spills, toxic gases and electrical connection issues are some of the major causes of work-related injury and ill health; be on the lookout for them.
Clean up liquid spills when you come across them and alert management when you notice signs of dangerous emissions or leakages. Loose or exposed wiring should be attended to as quickly as possible.
It is also risky to leave electrical appliances on when they are connected to their power sources. They should be switched off, and/or disconnected from those sources.
 3. Adhere to Company’s Safety Policy
The safety policy of a company would usually contain its general policy pertaining to the safety of its workers and property, as well as the duties of company personnel in ensuring that its safety standards are maintained.
However, having a safety policy is not enough. It is important for company staff to get educated about what the contents of the policy mean.
 4. Don’t Choose Profit over SafetyBusiness owners and decision makers might assume that they do not have to acquire all the safety equipment required for their business. In order to cut costs, they provide only “the essentials”. Some do not provide them at all.
The cost of accidents, when they do happen, could be much more than the “gain” made from depriving the work space of much-needed safety equipment.
 5. When you’re Not Certain, Ask QuestionsIf you do not understand the details of a task you have been told to carry out, request for more information about it. Do not assume that your incomplete knowledge is sufficient.
Working based on assumption could be dangerous, especially if the work involves delicate or complicated physical operations that require precise information to carry out. -(Credit: Ekoconnect)
