Mary’s Little Lamb | The Lion King

As a Child He came, a Lamb born in a manger,
Coming to His own, yet was treated like a stranger.
He grew in wisdom and stature, in favor with God and man,
He was in a perfect disguise; God as Son of Man.
His passion was for sinners, to redeem all from the curse.
The ‘saints’ called Him a blasphemer and nailed Him to the cross.
They hung Him high, spread him wide, a crown of thorns He wore.
The Father had to turn His face because man’s sin He bore.
The pain was great because they hadn’t separated before,
The sky went black, then an earthquake, the temple’s veil also tore.

Being dead, He was buried and it seemed like a tragic end of His story.
But three days later, mankind witnessed the greatest event of history.
He was risen, death’s sting failed and the grave lost its victory.
A few were there to see the Son of God ascend into His glory.
While they watched Him ascend, two men in white suddenly appeared,
“This same Jesus who has been taken from you into heaven...” They said,
“...will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven”.
His coming this time won’t be as silent as it was back then,
A trumpet blast will be the final call to rapture all His own.
Those that claim to know Him but don’t, He’ll surely disown.

He came as a Child; like a Lamb born in the manger,
But He’s returning as a Son; like a Lion roaring in anger.
The time is near, obviously, the last days are indeed here.
Look around you, it’s evident in the news that we hear.

Dear reader, I believe the message is clearly understood,
The Son of God became the Son of Man so sons of men could become Sons of God
He came as a Child; a Lamb not seeking the Saints but going for sinners,
He's coming as the Son; a Lion not seeking sinners but going with the Saints.

Debby (Bukola aka Precious1), my younger sister became a mother on Sat. 8th Dec to a handsome dude and we were still celebrating the breakthrough over delayed childbearing (more than a decade) in the lives of the women of the Martins family when the news came that Princess (Funmi), my immediate elder sister also became a mother to a fine gentleman in the early hours of Sun. 9th Dec 2012...(Most folks didn't even know she was pregnant...true to her name; Elizabeth)

Two boys - Valiant Men - delivered naturally in 2 of the 31 days in this miracle-filled "Double-Portion" December 2012.
The most interesting part is that God only starts what He has finished because He's the Alpha and Omega/Author and Finisher so the seeming delay in childbirth or marriage in the Martins family is a thing of the past.

We thank God because we are now more than sure that my chubby twin sister; Juliet Ade-Martins-Micheal Fanwo, is a Mother of Twins and we bless God also for one of the strongest African Women of Virtue & Faith I know, Martina Aderonke-Martins-Tunji Fatogun (Fruitful Vine), another Mother of Twins.

We thank God for those that prayed sincerely...God Bless You!
We thank God for those that prayed not so sincerely...God Bless You!
We thank God for those that spoke in care and true sincerity...God Bless You - you were sent to us after being on your knees before God!
We thank God for those that made snide remarks about the God we serve and the validity of His Call on the life of Daddy T. Ade Martins...God Bless You - you sent us to our knees before God!

To the eyes reading this message...

May God indeed do for you, what ONLY GOD can do BEFORE Jan 1, 2013!
May God's Christmas and New Year gift to you shock and make the world FEAR the GOD You serve!

May God do a Miracle for you that you'll not know HOW to Say "Thank You" to him again after saying it a million times over!

When God steps in, He doesn't take sides, He takes over and when He takes over, game over!

To PGH with Love

Dear Papa,

Every new day, as announced by the never waning sun, I see myself thanking God for special people like you in my life that make remembering the days gone by worthwhile.
Your leadership, consummate in skill, has made it easier for me to approach life from a whole new perspective, allowing me to look into the horizon with the priceless feeling of knowing am a son.

Pictures of pleasant moments, like a continuously flowing stream of deja vu experiences, refresh my mind as they remind me of moments in time that you’ve literally held my hand in yours via counsel and instruction. These saw me moving from who I was to who I am and becoming.

When I saw myself as a kid, you called me a king. The child in me instantly became a champion when you showed up on the scene. Now, I see a tree in full bloom when I look in the mirror as against the twig I knew all too well.

Permit me to say, with all sense of appreciation and deep seated gratitude, these common words to an uncommon father…

“Thank you"

Love you loads! 

I celebrate you Pastor GoodHeart O. C. Ekwueme
