God’s covenant of peace and blessing

Today is a special day in the Calendar of Christian religion. It is so because we are commemorating the highest event in Christendom which happens to be the focal point of our belief, for if Christ did not die, buried and resurrected, our belief will have been in vain and there would not have been any hope of restoration of the covenant we had with God before our foreparents severed it through sin.

Engaging the power of faith for fulfilment of destiny (3)

Welcome to your regular column. Previously, we looked at four channels of encountering destiny, which are: Direct Divine Encounter, Vision, Rhema and by Revelation.

Behold, it’s season of ultimatums

It all started with a 2-1 home loss against Abia Warriors at the beginning of the Nigeria Professional Football League 2017 season for champions, Rangers, followed by the exit of the team from the CAF Champions League and now marooned at the bottom of the table after 13 matches. It is definitely a bad start for the coach, Imama Amapakabo, who won the league shield after 32 years of waiting for the Flying Antelopes and it has led to the management issuing him a three-match ultimatum which expires this weekend…
