THE NAME OF JESUS

That’s how on Saturday night, October 5th to be precise, I and Juwon my friend strolled back home from evangelism/visitation.

O boy! The name of Jesus is powerful!

See how the events unfolded

*********

“Ogbeni! Bring that phone” the hoodlum shouted after missing his target of grabbing the Infinix Hot S3 held in my hands.

On turning back, I could see the dagger pointed in my direction as the hoodlum made an attempt to snatch the phone from my hand. They were two at my back for that matter!

THE NAME OF JESUS

“Jesus!” I shouted in a manner that made Juwon, my partner to flee the scene, causing the contents of the bag of pure water carried on his head to spill its contents. The way he fled, will make you think he is one kind Usain Bolt on a running spree.

THERE IS SOMETHING IN THE NAME OF JESUS

And that was how the phone miraculously flew into the compound as I threw it in response to my reflex. I really don’t know how God enabled me to throw the phone into the compound.  Although the screen was terribly damaged due to the fall, yet I’m grateful to God for preserving my life from injuries and saving my phione from being snatched from my hand before my korokoro eyes.

*************

That is the end of my story.

Thank you for listening!

(Takes a bow and leaves the stage)

Guys, I mean – thank God for the name of Jesus, for it cast a spell of fear on my supposed oppressors who fled the scene in terror immediately I shouted that name, I mean they fled.

Praise the LORD!

Sing this song by Gloria Bamilloye with me:

Esu to ba Gbemi

If not for the mercies of Christ, I could have been stabbed with the dagger kind of knife held by those guys

IN THE NAME OF JESUS

Hey! by the way, I’m sure you missed me right! I missed you too, and I’m sorry I stayed away from this tribe for a whole four months, instead of the three months I promised earlier. I’m really really sorry.

And thank you for your prayers, God helped me in my exams and took control. Praise the Lord!

lol.

But, don’t worry, the Hymn Challenge Season 2 is brewing, and it’s going to be hot!

SAVE THE DATE!

Hello! I am Emmanuel Omenayam Ashibuogwu, but you can call me SALT. I am a Christian writer and lover of youths. My passion is to see God's word transform lives. Time management, personal development and purposeful living are my core interests. My goal for writing is not literary or artistic achievement, but to promote spiritual fruitfulness and an irresistible devotion to our purpose for being on this earth. I am a graduate of the prestigious University of Ibadan, Ibadan, Nigeria. A geographer and Urban Planner by profession. I can act different roles in dramas (I hope you are not surprised… lol, well that’s a story for another day). I love to teach and mentor youths through His grace; I am also good at marketing. I advertise, write and of course, PRAY! I would love to meet you all as your lives are being touched for the better, but if we never meet, I pray that my writing would impart vision to your heart, while strengthening your foundation in Christ. See you at the top! You are welcome to my world!!!
