The Journey Between Two Trees

As they walked through the woods not too far from Grandpa’s cottage, Edward and his son; Daniel, sought out the perfect spruce to make for a grand Christmas tree. 
Joana, Daniel’s little sister scuttled along, touching trees here and there. According to her, their quest for a tree required a “feminine touch” to make it the perfect pick. Lisa had given her nod of approval to the little girl’s request to go with them amidst the baking and cooking typical of moms during Christmas.
Pointing his children in the direction of a tree, resplendent among others they had seen, Edward said “Now, that’s a nice one right there”. In the quavering voice of a five year old running to catch up with her brother, Joana replied, “It’s so beautiful, daddy”. 
They got the tree down in no time seeing that they weren’t going for something too big anyway. As they sang and marched back home, Lisa and her mom knew their search paid off when all three voices drew nearer from a distance with the tree’s top leaving a trail in the snow covered landscape around their home. 
“Mommy! Mommy! Dad found a perfect one!” said Joana as Daniel helped his dad set the tree up beside the fireplace. Then handing a little branch from the tree to Eunice, she said “I got this for you Grandma”. As she hugged her, Titus looked at his wife and said “now that’s some loving we all need during Christmas” with a baritone voice that got Lisa and Edward laughing as Eunice rolled her eyes and said “oh please!”. 

As she took her seat on Titus’ laps, Joana asked “will you tell us a Christmas story?” “Sure thing” he replied. “Christmas is about the journey between the two trees” he added. “Really? But daddy only cut one tree” said Joana as she started off to go join Daniel who had also been called by Edward from the garage to get the decorations in for the tree.
“Journey? Two trees? Now that’s a first. Where do you get these stories from anyway?” asked Lisa as she set some oats on the table before her dad and took a seat briefly beside him before attending to the cookies in the oven. “Your daughter’s just like you, you know; inquisitive and always eager to learn.” Then with a smile she was rather familiar with, he added “I get them from there as always” pointing to the Bible sitting on the side table near her couch. Reading the look on her face, he said “ok, since you asked, I’ll explain to you how Christmas is about the journey between the two trees”. 

“When God placed man in the Garden of Eden, he gave the instruction that they should not eat of the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil but they did and man fell. That tree became the start off point for man’s journey to destruction. God in his mercies decided to put another tree in place so that anyone who eats from this tree would not die but live eternally. That second tree is the Cross at Calvary. Whoever accepts and also eats; like we literally do at the Communion table, of the “fruit” of the cross; would be spared from death and destruction.” 
“Hmmm, interesting…” said Lisa as she thought to herself how this was connected to Christmas. As though to answer her thoughts, he went on to say “many celebrate Christmas with the giving and receiving of gifts, as they hang decorations on a tree beneath which are gifts. But, not a few of those opening the gifts under the tree have opened their hearts to the greatest gift; God’s gift to the world, who was born to be hung on a tree.”
“That’s quite a way to see Christmas, Dad” she said as she felt the bowl to know the warmth of his meal. Motioning with his hands that she not bother too much about it, he continued saying “there’s quite a lot of travelling this time of the year. How I would that more people were on the way; The Way of Life. He’s the reason for the season you know...”

“Thanks Dad”, she said as she made towards the oven to check on the cookies. Taking a glimpse through the window blinds, she said “well, your listeners are on their way back”. Titus giggled like a grandpa would and took another spoon of his meal as Joana and Daniel walked in with their father, carrying boxes as they headed towards the tree. Lisa smiled as she wondered what creative way her dad would convey the story to these young minds. “Mom, Your meal is ready” she said. “Thanks honey” replied Eunice as she prepared to put aside her knitting to rise from the rocking chair on the porch.

A Broadcast Message (BB) sent on Tuesday, 17th December, 2013

Great One,

I felt to share this...especially because Great Ones don't have a spirit of fear; but of power, love and a soundmind! (2nd Tim. 1:7).

"From Minister Nathaniel Bassey:

Good Morning Saints,

I woke up this morning after having this vision or revelation.

I saw these people who hypnotize people for ritual purposes and I sensed that being the year end, into a new year and for other reasons, these demon possessed people are out seeking their prey.

I prayed this in the vision. May be good you pray these, if you don't mind.

"Father, let your fire (Holy Spirit's fire) come upon me like never before. And let my head and that of my loved ones and friends, never be attractive for ritual killings."

"When evil men see me, let them encounter your holy fire in Jesus' name"

"Father hide us from ritual killers, kidnappers and evil men, in Jesus name."

"Father, expose and arrest every ritual killer and kidnapper in our land, in Jesus' name."

From me, 'Bayor, to you:

Thanks for being you Great One.

May God's blessings shower more on you in this season.

May the Lord Jesus Christ, the reason for this season, give you even more reasons to be the reason others will reason it through to also follow the reason for this season.

By this time next year, may all your hopes, dreams and visions for 2014 become real time experiences that you'll look back at and say "indeed, God has crowned every effort with success for me".

God bless you with speed and effortless ease now and always!

May 2014 be a year of Inexplicable Transformation for good for you!

Cheers Great One.

Yadah | Notes from Nathaniel Bassey (11th October 2013)

A few days ago I had an interesting revelation on the lifting of hands in worship.

When we raise our hands in worship, we bless God and surrender to him amongst other things.

And guess what? In an atmosphere of worship there is an unseen force field around. One charged with the glory and favour of God. Just the same way you may not see a WiFi but can connect to the internet through it.

I believe we release this glory cloud, now residing within us, into the atmosphere as we worship (2nd Chronicles 5:12-14). Remember, we are the temple of the Holy Ghost; God almighty.

Also, our hands represent the source and means by which we earn a living. Somehow, somehow.. you get to use them, either by signing papers, playing an instrument, carrying blocks or even plaiting the hair. Our hands, also, and unfortunately, get involved in some bad stuffs (sad face).

This is what I got, as we worship in spirit and in truth, lifting holy hands to Jehovah, Jesus our saviour, he blesses and sanctifies them. His glory and favour rests on them, empowering them to succeed and to do right. Such that anything you touch, prospers.

So beloved, as you worship from your heart, in spirit and in truth, lifting hands to him with understanding, believe that you leave empowered for exploits and glory.

So are you struggling in your business or job? lift your hands. 
Are you sick in your body? lift your hands. 
Are you depressed or burdened in your mind? lift your hands.

God bless you.

Ps 63:4
"Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my hands in thy name"

"And let the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us:establish thou the work of our hands...."

Ps 18:34

"He teacheth my hands to war..."

AM or PM, the twelfth hour represents TRANSITION…

Midnight is the transition time period from one day to the next: the moment when the date changes. However, we can determine what sort of day it should be…

25-26 Along about midnight, Paul and Silas were at prayer and singing a robust hymn to God. The other prisoners couldn’t believe their ears. Then, without warning, a huge earthquake! The jailhouse tottered, every door flew open, all the prisoners were loose.
-         Acts 16:25-26 (MSG)

24 This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
-         Ps. 118:24 (KJV)

12 Hast thou commanded the morning since thy days; and caused the dayspring to know his place;
-         Job 38:12 (KJV)

May this twelfth month be for you, a month of Supernatural Transition as you raise up an offering of Praise, Worship and Prayers of Thanksgiving to the Alpha and Omega; The One who began the beginning before the beginning began. He alone knows the end from the beginning.

5 Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee. 6 Then shall the earth yield her increase; and God, even our own God, shall bless us. 7 God shall bless us; and all the ends of the earth shall fear him.
-         Psalm 67:5-7 (KJV)

The earth yields its increase...if the seed was sown.
It's just an extra drop that causes a cup filled to the brim to begin to overflow.

As your praises go up to God in this twelfth month, may He CROWN all your efforts this year with a TURNAROUND  that would make people say concerning  you, "this can only be God".

THIS has been 2013 and indeed, as alluded to above, it’s Morning!

Visitors and workers in the king’s palace are not privy to the things he says in his bedroom behind closed doors save the trusted few who are granted access into his chambers.
If in anyway, these monthly "new month" posts have been a blessing to you, then please help me appreciate The King; I’m honoured and privileged to be among those growing in their ability to hear him speak.

If you’ve not done so already, please kindly listen/download the songs “Morning Wind” ( and “Songs For YOU” (

Jesus Christ is Lord!
