Today @ healingsprings fellowship 

Last week I made an attempt to treat Amos’ visions, their meaning and the success of his intercession in averting the calamities from the nation. And I also covered subtopics like intercession and visions.

Moving forward, I will be looking at prayer as I crystallise this seminal piece of religious literature at today’s lecture. 

In an effort to articulate the sense of urgency and importance of his message, the prophet wrote poetically:  

The lion has roared; who will not fear? The Lord God has spoken; who can but prophesy? – Amos 3:8

God be praised! 🙌🏿🙌🏿🙌🏿

Today @ Healingsprings fellowship 

Who is a prophet?

In our time it is easy to see prophets as social reformers, but first and foremost a prophet is a man of God. He is a religious visionary, an innovator, an original thinker; who impresses his own new moral insights on society, arriving at fresh ideas about religion. As such a prophet’s criticisms is felt to have a force and authority that cannot be matched by any known institution on earth.
Last week we delved into two of Amos’ teaching: social and economic justice, and obedience and total loyalty to God – not sacrifices. 
Pressing on, today I’ll be treating his monotheistic view. For Amos, the other gods did not even get an audience – Yahweh is sovereign! 
If time permits, I will explore his visions (5 in total), and his intercessory dialogue. Questions include: when did the visions occur? Is Amos’ writing in chronological order?
However the most valuable questions are these: what is Amos’ message? How can we apply it in our lives and our relationship with God?
So, join us!

2016: Our Season of Plenty

(Gen. 41: 46-52)


Spiritual Intelligence: The Supernatural

Supernatural can be attributed to some force beyond scientific understanding or the laws of nature. As an adjective, it can be used to describe a manifestation or event

The Bible can be described at best as a supernatural book. A book filled with mysteries; a book of the past, present and future.

Good morning friends. Many struggle to understand the content and relevance of the bible; so, they either ignore, dismiss or discredit it. But the fact that one cannot make sense of something, does not make it non existence. Also, the fact that something is inexplainable or indescribable, does not necessarily mean it’s wrong.

Science has a fascination with classification, this I guess helps us understand things better. Therefore we have a word for stuff that do not conform to our standards of classification, we call them anomalies. Anomalies are the bad guys. They mess up your data sample, they make your research project more difficult. In fact, there have been cases where data sets have been reviewed with a view to get rid of anomalies. However in recent times, through better supervision and a culture of sharing, openness and transparency; this practise has been curbed. These days anomalies are embraced and used to find greater meaning to life and its challenges.

The supernatural is not foreign or alien to humankind. In African, European, American and Asian folklore or literary culture, there are accounts of the supernatural. With this in mind, it is evident that our effort through science and psychology to find definitions and reason for the world around us has left us slightly uncomfortable with the supernatural.

In our effort to re-educate, in our effort to make sophisticate, in our effort for civility; I fear we are overlooking a key part of our world. I fear we are drifting away from the very basis of human existence. The supernatural is natural to humankind, science just needs to catchup. I conclude by saying it’s senseless and inequitable to hold back progress until we can find comfortable answers through science or psychology.

Friends, we experience dreams, visions, dejavus, premonitions, intuitions etc., on a daily basis. They are real, they are evidence of the supernatural, better put; they are evidence that we are supernatural!

In the words of Paul:

By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.
