YOUR SUNDAY WITH PROPHET M.K.O. TIBETAN!
Today Sunday November 9th, 2008 'Icheoku dot com' brings to you part four of our new series "YOUR SUNDAY WITH PROPHET M.K.O. TIBETAN". This man of God writes on whatever subject he deems topical and Icheoku merely publishes same seriatim, without any input whatsoever, since we are not all that versed in the ways of God to have an opinion. Today, Prophet Marcus Korodele Oluwatomisin writes on "GOD'S TIME". Please enjoy his perspectives:-
"The topic for today is TIME! What is time? Who created time? Who makes time work? In Ecclesiastes 3 vs.1-10 it says, for everything under the heavens there is time - time to cultivate, time to plant and time to harvest, time to be born and time to die. No one has power over time, except the Author and the Finisher of our faith, the Almighty God. Looking at all the activities of every human race - Black, White, Asian, Hispanic and Indians, we all work according to time. In Europe and America, the white folks work conscientiously with time but the people of colour including blacks, disregard time and treat it with levity. This disdain for time is what makes us to lack behind, leading to western world reference to us as third world. Reading Genesis 30 vs. 25 - 43, it tells us that God deliberately delayed Jacob’s time despite his urge and desire to work ahead of time. In Genesis 15 vs. 12 - 16, when the Lord Almighty decided to delay the freedom of the Israelites and made them remain in servitude in Egypt under Pharaoh due to their disobedience. God kept their suffering until the time appointed for them to walk their away from their punishment as recorded in Genesis 47. The good Lord knew the time that the Israelite will be freed from their slavery in Egypt, He raise one of them “MOSES” to carry out their deliverance from Egypt, this came to fulfilment in Exodus Chapters 12, 13, 14,15 and 16. From reading all these chapters, we see how God took the people of Israelites through the RED SEA, gave them manna from Heaven, delivered to them the 10 commandments and with all they went through in the wilderness, their shoes never wore out. This shows how great out Lord is, everything that happened to the Israelite was done by God and at his own time. Therefore Brethren, we should make haste while the sun shines! Brethren a closer look at the negligent attitude of black people to TIME reveals that this is the single factor that make them to lose out on so many things. When a black person is invited to an occasion for instance and he happen to come late, the excuse he will give is that he is working on “African time”. Tell me brethren, does Africa have its own time or do we have our own God that is different from the only God of host? Please brethren, respect TIME and God’s time in your life will never pass you by. In Genesis 37, Joseph arrived in time surrendering himself to God with all he has and had gone through; this was credited to him and he was raised from grass to grace above the rest. Tell me, will any of you reading this piece, pray to go through what Joseph went through? In Genesis 39, Joseph was imprisoned, came out from prison and became a leader, therefore, what is the problem that you have that is making you to ignore or disrespect time? When the time came in Genesis Chapters 44, 45, 46 & 47, Joseph revealed himself to his brothers saying “I am Joseph whom you sold to slavery"; he fed them and brought them to himself. He advised them on how to be good people and urged everyone to forget the past because it is God that brought him there ahead of time to be their saviour in their situation in order to give them new lease on life. The immorality in the world today has become comparable to that of Sodom and Gomorrah. When the time came, God allowed a plague called HIV/AIDS in order to checkmate the world so that we can turn back to God and respect the Law that says one man one wife. Brethren weigh yourselves in all you are doing if you are respecting time or wasting away time. For instance one that God has destined to travel to Togo for a reason, decided to embark on a journey to Canada, all the years this person will spend in Canada will amount to a waste, and therefore he may come out blaming God due to his lack of respect for God’s time in his life. Can any one judge God? No, rather God is the one to judge both the living and the dead. If a student does not get promoted to the next class, then it is time for the student to study harder, read all the important books, if not he will fail and see his contemporary being promoted; though they may still be friends but not classmates. Brethren, can you now weigh yourself if you are about to waste your time or if you have already wasted it, being friends is different from being mates. Dig deep into the Bible in Numbers 11 vs. 1 - 35, Moses sent ten spies to the land they were to posses, they came back with frightening news that they are like ants besides the inhabitants of the land. But Joshua and Caleb have seen all God Almighty is capable of doing during their journey and knew that the same God Lord will help them conquer the Canaanites. Therefore, what is that trouble in your life that God cannot see you through with? All you need to do is to use your God’s given time well and all that looks mountainous before you will be brought down in Jesus name, AMEN! In Joshua 1 vs. 1 - 9, Joshua was promoted at the right time because that was the time God designed for him. If all of you wait on God’s time, your promotion will come and all your heart desire will be granted unto you, all you need to do is to purge yourself with absolute submission of your body and soul to God Almighty. Read Matthew 9 vs. 20, Ephesians 4 vs.23, Joel 12 vs. 12 &13; I Timothy 2 vs. 9, I Timothy 6 vs. 1 - 12 and Psalm 49 vs. 6end. Looking at the world today, everyone is struggling to become a millionaire without checking their foundation; because foundation matters a lot as stated in the books of I Corinthians 3 particularly 10 plus; I Timothy 3; I Timothy 6; Romans 8; Job 1 vs. 1-10; Ezekiel 16 vs. 44, Micah 3; Micah 2 vs. 1-10 and Malachi 1 vs. 6-12. All that the bible said is already coming to pass, the car rental companies asked the scientists to make a compass (GPS) in order to boost sales. This day in age the computer technology has taken over the running of the economy, now the time has come that the same technology is destroying the Global Economy as it is rendering people jobless, the job that 5 people were doing previously is today being done by a single computer system. The scientists have actually gone a bit farther now that they think by cloning human embryo they can create their own designer babies. What a fast pace but still God is supreme because they can never be faster than time. Parent these days are getting their children into very early school, therefore forcing them into early adulthood, forgetting that God in his word, the holy Bible said that for everything there is a season, time to born and time to die, time to sow and time to Harvest. In conclusion therefore, I want you all to start thinking now as to where you belong because we all will carry the tag RIP at a stage, which is either Rest in Peace or Rest in Pieces.Think about this Brethren and chose today if you are willing to work with God’s time or if you want to create your own time. Remember II Samuel 14 Vs.14; Genesis 3 vs.19, Psalm49 vs.6-15 said from dust were we made and unto dust shall we return. All things will come to an end and there will come a time when our beautiful portrait will no longer suit the living room but the attic".
