WEAPONS FOR REVIVAL SERIES: The Law and Christianity

Just like some other terms in existence, the word "law" does not have any universally acceptable definition. Each man defines law based on his conception and influence of environment. Generally, the word "law" connotes some forms of rules, regulations, commands agreed by the people or imposed by a superior authority which is aimed at regulating the activities of those living within a geographical area. One wonders how the society would look like without some forms of regulations. Law seeks to bring order into the human society. It sets limits and extent to which an individual can go in pursuing his desires. Even with the existence of law, there seem to be some disorder in the

Part 3 of 3: Quitting and Handling Withdrawal


  1. Stop the addictive behavior as planned. When the big day arrives, keep your promise to yourself and quit. Those first few days are going to be hard. Keep yourself busy and stay positive. You're on your way to an addiction-free life.
    • If you need distractions, try exercising, taking up a new hobby, cooking, or hanging out with friends. Joining a new club, sports team, or other kind of community group will help you make new friends and start a new chapter of your life in which addiction is not a part. Positive social interactions can stimulate the release of neurochemicals which elicit feelings of happiness and satisfaction without the need for drugs.

"I have learned to be satisfied with the things i have & with everything that happens" (Phil 4:11b)
A lot has happened on earth that came as a result of jealousy. When a man is not contented with himself, he becomes jealous & envious leading ultimately to hatred.
One major reason why people are not contented with themselves is that they see life as a competition where they are competing to out-smart the 'whole world' so that they will be revered, respected & honoured. They just want to be seen

Mercy is an attitude of kindness and forgiveness shown where none is expected. Certainly we have no grounds to expect God's mercy. Sin in us is so repulsive to God that it draws a line of separation between us and God that cannot be crossed. Yet God shows mercy to us through His Son Jesus Christ.

The Bible describes God as a God of Mercy:
``For the Lord your God is a merciful God; he will not abandon you or forget the covenant with your forefathers, which he confirmed to them by oath'' (Deuteronomy 4:31 NIV). Again, ``But because of His
great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with

HEALTH: Care of the Breast

There are several things that women can do
to ensure good breast health.
Some of the easiest and importants
precautionary steps to take is to eat well
and exercise. This not only ensures good
overall health, but also good breast health.
It is also a good idea to reduce the amount
of time that you wear a bra, and only wear
ones that fit you properly. Getting a good
sports bra for added support when you are
out getting your daily exercise or even
when you are walking around at home may
be beneficial. Or you can decide to go bra-
It is also a good idea to learn how to do
breast self-exams, and to do these on a
regular basis. Also, have clinical
examinations done at your annual medical
check-up. Determine your risk factors and
discuss these with your doctor so that you
can decide when to start having regular
mammograms or thermograms. Getting a
mammogram is especially important if you
are over the age of 40 or if you have certain
risk factors (e.g. a family history of breast
cancer, personal history of breast cancer or
a genetic predisposition). A mammogram is
an X-ray of the breast that will show any
abnormal changes before you or your
doctor will be able to feel them. This can
be pivotal in early diagnosis and treatment
of cancer. Women at increased risk should
talk with their doctors about the benefits
and limitations of starting screening earlier
or having additional tests performed, such
as breast ultrasound or MRI.

How to Perform a Breast Self-Exam:

Begin by looking at your breasts in the
mirror with your shoulders straight and
your hands on your hips.
Here is what you should look for:
1.  Breasts that are their usual size, shape,
and color.
2.  Breasts that are evenly shaped without visible distortions or swelling.
If you see any of the following changes,
bring them to your doctor’s attention:
1.  Dimpling, puckering, or bulging of the skin.
2.  A nippple that has changed position or
become inverted (pushed inwardly
instead of sticking out).
3.  Redness, soreness, rash, or swelling.

Raise your arms and look for the same

While you are at the mirror, gently squeeze
each nipple between your finger and
thumb and check for nipple discharge (this
could be a milky or yellow fluid or blood).

Feel your breasts while lying down, using
your right hand to feel your left breast and
then your left hand to feel your right
breast. Use a firm, smooth touch with the
first few fingers of your hand, keeping the
fingers flat and together.

Cover the entire breast from top to bottom,
side to side – from your collarbone to the
top of your abdomen, and from your
armpit to your cleavage.

Finally, feel your breasts while you are
standing or sitting. Many women find that
the easiest way to feel their breasts is when
their skin is wet and slippery; any lumps or
thickening will be easier to feel than when
your skin is dry. Thus, many women like to
do this step in the shower. Cover your
entire breast, using the same hand
movements described above.

"Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours." (Mark 11:24)

A lot of people have actually prayed for things and didn't see anything that looked like the answer because they didn't know what to expect.

Firstly, I like to say to you that prayer is not the moment of complaint to God rather it's a moment of communing with God, talking to & with the father & also a time of declaring his mighty power over the works of man & of the earth. When you have this understanding you wouldn't be complaining when you pray rather your attitude towards prayer would change.

Our text says everything you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it & it will be yours. This means if you prayed to have a job, believe that you have the job. This belief would prompt you to behave like someone who works in that company, learn their ethics, etc & soon the job would be yours. If you are praying for a husband, believing that you have the husband would prompt you to start behaving like someone's wife, developing the good characters a wife should possess & eliminating the bad habits a wife shouldn't have.

NB: Prayer is more than the words that come out of our mouth while on our knees, it carries the responsibility of belief & action.

1.  Maximize your singleness for God.
Accept that you’re in a season of life that affords some freedoms and
benefits you will not have if and when
you marry. It is a good season to
finish your education, increase your
theological knowledge, travel to serve
in missions, give time to your church,
work long hours to establish your
career, and pay off any debt you may
have accrued. In short, invest your
single years in a way that they later
pay a great return. Do not waste

2.  Do not pursue a serious
relationship until you are ready to marry. There are many reasons why
people should, for a season, devote
their energies to something other
than finding a spouse. Getting biblical
counseling to overcome a habitual sin
such as pornography or substance
abuse, maturing as a Christian if they
are a new or immature convert, or
simply moving out of their parents’
home and taking on adult
responsibilities are all good reasons
to delay a serious relationship until a
better season of life. Basically, until
people are mature enough to marry,
they should not be in a serious
romantic relationship but should use
their energies to mature.
3.  Be reasonable. Do not set your
expectations too high or too low. If
you set your expectations too low,
you may marry and be miserable,
having made the biggest mistake of
your life. If you set your expectations
too high, you may never marry, or
you may marry the person you think
you want but who may not be the one
God would consider best for you. I
discourage Christian singles from
having too long a list of what they are
looking for in a spouse. The truth is
that most of these lists are simply
idolatrous because they are
comprised of the seekers’ resume and
what they like and do, as if the goal of
marriage is to find someone just like
them rather than someone different
from them so that together they can
learn to love and serve one another.
Few men are looking for a widowed,
broke, and homeless gal from a
family noted for incest who is a
recent convert with a bitter mother-
in-law in tow. But her name is Ruth,
and Boaz was blessed to marry her,
and through her came Jesus.

4. Do not be legalistic about dating.
There is a difference between a date
and dating. A date can be two people
spending time together, going out for
a meal or coffee after church to get to
know one another in a non-sexual
manner. Dating as is practiced by
non-Christians is not acceptable for
Christians. Still, the word dating is not
worth quibbling over, as Paul tells us
not to quarrel over words. Whether
we call it “a date” or something else,
time together does not need to be
considered a dating relationship. In
1 Timothy 5:1–2 , Paul tells Christian
single men to treat Christian single
women like sisters. Thus, since adult
brothers and sisters talk to one
another, enjoy one another’s
company, and occasionally enjoy a
meal together, it is not a sin for two
single Christians to enjoy time
together, getting to know one
another, so that they can see if there
is the possibility of a more serious
relationship that leads to courtship
and marriage.
5.  Do not have any romantic
relationship with someone who is a
non-Christian. The reasons here are
almost limitless. Since you cannot
marry a non-Christian, getting
emotionally involved is pointless and
only leads to sin and/or heartache.
Since Jesus is at the center of your
life, a non-Christian will not even
understand who you are. Because you
submit to Scripture and unbelievers
do not, your relationship with one
has no court of arbitration in which
to resolve your differences. An
unbeliever is not in covenant with
Jesus, so he or she has no covenental
framework for any relationship with
you. If he or she is not a Christian,
you have no means of dealing with
sin that will come between the two of
you, because you do not both believe
in the gospel of Jesus’ death for sin.
Indeed, you can have non-romantic
evangelistic relationships with non-
Christians, but if the parties involved
are single, the odds of attraction are
high, and it is usually best to
introduce the non-Christians to your
Christian friends of the opposite
gender so that an evangelistic
relationship can form.
6.  You should be in a romantic
relationship with only one person
at a time. Ultimately, the goal of a
Christian not called to singleness is
not to have a boyfriend or girlfriend
but to have a spouse. It is cruel to
date multiple people at one time,
having them compete for your
affections. Furthermore, it is better
preparation for adultery than it is for covenant marriage.
7.  He should initiate and she should respond. Because the Bible
repeatedly states that the husband is to be the loving and leading head of the family, any romantic relationship should begin with the man taking initiative to kindly and respectfully request an opportunity to get to know the woman better. Too many Christian men are too timid and need to have more courage to risk rejection
in their pursuit of a wife. Any woman who is not interested in, say, a group outing or a cup of coffee need simply say no, and the man should respect that answer.
8.  You need to look at who God puts in front of you. Too many singles are
looking over people in their church
and life who do love God in pursuit of a mythical person, who does not
exist. Yet, in God’s providence, good
potential spouses are right in front of them. Furthermore, while a woman should not chase a man, she can wisely put herself in front of him. This is precisely what happened in the story of Ruth and Boaz. Although God providentially put Ruth at work gleaning for food in the field of Boaz, Boaz did not consider her a potential wife until Ruth took the counsel of the
older woman Naomi and got dressed up and went to the same big party as Boaz, where she did not chase him but did get in his way. The result? One of the greatest love stories in the Bible.

"I know, O LORD, that a man's life is not his own; it is not for man to direct his steps." (Jeremiah 10:23, NIV).

You can only determine the course of something that belongs to you. Your life is not your own. Allow God, the owner, guide your steps. Commit your plans to God daily and let Him lead you. Things may not work as you've planned sometimes. Smile because God is making everything work for your good. God sometimes uses "disappointments" to push us back into His will!

The Federal Government has invoked the
‘no work, no pay’ labour rule against
striking university lecturers as their
industrial action enters the 93rd day with
no end in sight.

Some of the federal university vice
chancellors have not paid the Academic
Staff Union of Universities (ASUU)
members their August and September
salaries in compliance with the
government’s directive.
Some branch chairmen of ASUU see the
government and vice chancellor’s move as
an attempt to break the rank of their
members, insisting that their members are
resolute on the ongoing strike.

Some ASUU branch chairmen told Daily
Sun that text messages were sent to vice
chancellors to apply the ‘no work, no pay’
labour rules to academic staff on strike
and that the decision had affected the
payment of salary of non-academic staff in
the university system.

According to one of the branch chairmen,
he and his exco confronted their university
management over the salary delay and the
he showed them the text message asking
them not to pay salary to ASUU members.
He stressed that the ‘no work, no pay’
labour rule had never worked, pointing out
that ASUU has a counter-measure, which
was ‘no pay, no work,’ and that the union
was not on strike because of salary

Many Nigerian youths are bitter (like bitterness will make one better), pointing accusing fingers at people like Dangote, Adenuga and generally seeing nothing good
in what others do, believing the world is against them. For those, I leave you with the immutable words of J. K Rowling, writter of
the Harry Potter series:

“There is an expiry date on blaming your
parents for steering you in the wrong direction; the moment you are old enough to take the wheel, responsibility lies with you.”

That is not all. The legendary French writer
and philosopher who rejected the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1964, Jean-Paul Sartre
also said:

“Man is condemned to be free; because once
thrown into the world, he is responsible for
everything he does. It is up to you to give life
a meaning.”

But perhaps, the most poignant advice of all
is from the Wise One of China, Confucius,
who stated thousands of years ago:

"Attack the evil that is within yourself, rather
than attacking the evil that is in others.”

In a nation like Nigeria where there is so much negativity emanating right from independence till date, Aliko Dangote still rose above it all - he comes across as a man
with a most positive mindset.

You might well remember that nothing can bring you success but yourself.

WEAPONS FOR REVIVAL : Danger points where the devil can strike


In Old Testament times the 'birthright' meant you
inherited twice as much of your father's
estate. Normally Esau wouldn't have considered selling his birthright, but he did in a state of exhaustion.

King Herod was seduced by
a dancing girl, threw caution to the wind and said,
'Whatever you ask me, I wil give you'.
She asked for the head of John the Baptist. And since he was king, Herod couldn't go back on his word. That moment of indulgence cost Herod his kingdom and his life.
Be careful where you go looking for excitement, and how you react when you find it. It can cost you the game!

In a moment of discouragement Peter did what he swore he'd never do: deny his Lord.
Discouragement can make you say things you don't mean and do things that are out of character.
