Hmm – – – so (This was posted on December 29, 2013)

A4P Guest: “Before marriage, I didn’t sleep with anyone. Except my husband, I know no other man. I did everything I can to keep myself for him. Now after five years of marriage; he doesn’t even care for me a bit. He doesn’t love me anymore.”

A4P: Staying virgin doesn’t benefit anyone but the person who stayed virgin. And there is no Bible Scripture that says “A man has to love his wife if he is the one who is going to take her virginity.”

All the mental, spiritual and physical benefits of staying virgin belong to the person who stays virgin.

And by the way, a man tends to love a wife who respects and honors him as a person and as a husband. Sure, he can be a “selfish dork” whose world revolves around him and his desires and needs but he cannot be asked to pay his wife back for being his wife’s first and only sexual partner. ///

Sunday, Oct. 05, 2014 Sermon at AEEC

The Amanuel Ethiopian Evangelical Church (AEEC) just shared yesterday’s sermon on their YouTube!

Isn’t that wonderful! Sitting down in my kitchen, I watched this program as if it was given by somebody else. Oh, how I love the message!

May all the glory and praise be to Jesus Christ!

So, it is with joy that I’m sharing this message with you all. This is the message I delivered yesterday at AEEC. I hope God speaks to your heart as He spoke to me! May He bless us all with a life which is honoring and acceptable before man and God!

Here we go:

Is masturbation a problem of women too?

Sure, masturbation is not only the problem of men but women’s too. Women often resort to masturbation not because of any “egg build-up” in their body as it is the case with men (sperm build-up plus lust). Nothing builds up in a woman’s body when it comes to sexual desire because her sexuality is not mostly physical but emotional.

Woman has a God-given desire to be adored, pursued, loved, touched, caressed, kissed, treasured, admired Continue reading Is masturbation a problem of women too?

Marriage is not a cure for loneliness?

Adam had never been with any other human being when God said, “It is not good for a man to be alone.” Adam was the only human being there was. The one and only one!

Adam didn’t feel lonely because perfect presence of God was with him. He was moving around and doing life at the presence of God.

Remember, lonely people are not necessarily alone; they usually live among many people.

But Adam was alone; Continue reading Marriage is not a cure for loneliness?

Had a Wonderful Sunday!

I had a wonderful time yesterday at the Amanuel Ethiopian Evangelical Church! Praise the LORD!

Thank you, Pastor Abera (Senior Pastor), and to all the leaders at the Amanuel Church for having me, for opening not only your doors but also your hearts! Thank you so much for embracing me and my ministry as if I was directly sent by God. Thank you!

Thank you my Facebook fans who came out yesterday to worship God with me and with all the Amanuel Church folks!

I don’t know about you but I had a blast! Wow! The worship! It was off the chart!

I was very happy to meet some of my fans I never met before. I also met someone who came to the program because his friends who live in Seattle are my Facebook fans and they told him to attend the program.

Oh, My! You don’t know how much I appreciate you guys! Thank you! Go Seattle!

May God bless you all! ///

Only Favor from God is needed! (This was posted on 11/01/2013)

“When the turn came for Esther (the young woman Mordecai had adopted, the daughter of his uncle Abihail) to go to the king, she asked for nothing other than what Hegai, the king’s eunuch who was in charge of the harem, suggested. And Esther won the favor of everyone who saw her.” (Esther 2:15)

Esther “asked for nothing”. Why not? Because she knew that outer beauty is nothing unless it is complemented by the inside beauty. She was obedient to her “adopted father” (her uncle). She was submissive to the man who was in charge of all the women who came forward to be picked as a wife to the king. Every woman was privileged to ask anything they wanted (as it is recorded on Esther 2:13) but Esther “asked for nothing”. She knew that she only needed one thing; favor before God. Esther is one of the Bible Old Testament Books where we don’t find the word “God” but we see it throughout the book, invisibly, God intercepting in the middle of the story.

Yes, Esther found favor before God and He helped her to win the favor of the king and she became queen. Verse 13 says “Now the king was attracted to Esther more than to any of the other women, and she won his favor and approval more than any of the other virgins. So he set a royal crown on her head and made her queen instead of Vashti.” This is what is called “pure favor from above.” She didn’t take what was legitimately hers. She was just beautiful from the inside out!!!! And the king couldn’t resist that! ///

Purity for the brave hearted!
