Do you ever wonder? Cos I wonda.... I just wonda

Ever wondered what Jesus was like before 30?

What kind of teenager was he? What sort of young adult was he?

We know very little of his childhood, the last we heard of him before 30 was when his parents went to the temple and lost him (even *GOD's* parent's had challenges with parenting, who then are you not to have ur share, Loll). Anyway, they found him having a chat with scholars of the temple and when he was asked where he had been all this while he said “Why are you looking for me? I’m busy with my father’s business” and his mother bought that? He sure was an interestingly bold kid. Tell that to my mother after getting her all worked up with worry looking for you, you'll explain to her with letters written with your tears what that “business” is.

Did he ever get scolded for not cleaning his room, messing up the house? I can imagine Mary screaming “Jesus, go and clean up your room, where do you think this is, a barn?” and Jesus thinking “Duuuuh (ok Jew kids those days wouldn’t sat duuuuh hehe), I was born in a manger, how dirty can this room get”.

How come no one thought of writing down anything from those vital years? C’mon people, GOD is in the building, somebody pleeeease keep a journal!

Interestingly, the next thing we hear - after the temptation (see its not just u that has to go thru temptations) - he’s at a wedding, turning WATER into WINE, can u beat that? Grooovieee Christi.

I wonder, when he was young did he fall in love with anyone (girl of course), but knowing he couldn’t encourage any such feelings because he knew he was going to die soon, how did he have to deal with loving someone he couldn’t be with? Did he get upset? What was his response as a young person to annoying situations? Seeing he died at 35, no wife, no kids what was life for him like when he wasn’t busy being GOD?

We know from the bible that he was 100% MAN and 100% GOD meaning that for him to be the perfect sacrifice he had to go through every sort of emotion, joy, love, anger, pain e.t.c.

I’ll always keep wondering but one thing I know is that it only makes me love him more knowing that derz nothing I will go through in life that he didn’t experience and he STILL came out TOPZ, meaning? I most definitely will come TOPZ too, cos he lives in me and his ability has become my abinibi (yeah, LoL, my ability).

thoughts inspired by Mark Lowry's presentation of *Mary did you know...* at the 50th NQC anniversary


Could all these Super hero action stories be try'na tell us something?

Yeah yeah, call me crazy or extreme but watevaaaaa, I’m still gonna write wats in my head now…

I’m watching the series “Heroes” now, just started Season 1 (Yes, I know you’re watching Season (x) now but like the adage says, it’s when you wake up that is your morning) and I paused it to write this because loads of thoughts are going through my mind and I just thought it best to write them down as they come.

I’ve been listening to a sermon series in church on “Christ consciousness” where my pastor has been explaining to us on what it really means to be a Christian, being aware of who you are and what you are. Who is Christ? What is Christ? He goes on to say the who – Jesus and the what – the Church.

Chiiiilll, I’ll tell you where HEROES comes in, lol

Now the first Christians did not call themselves Christians, they were called Christians by others who saw them TALK and ACT like Jesus. They spoke with authority, did miracles just like Jesus.

Ooooookkkk, how does all this connect to HEROES and every other Super-hero character we know?

The series starts with each character noticing something different about them and trying to find out what it was. It drove some to want to commit suicide cos they didn’t understand what was happening to them or why it was happening to them but as they searched for answers they began to realize their reason for being here.

Note the path to them coming to their full potential –

- They asked questions – desire to know what this whole EXISTENCE is about, who I am? Why am I here?

- They searched for answers – you have to take out time to search the scriptures to KNOW WHO you are and WHY you are here

- There was someone to guide them through – we have the bible that tells us who we are

SEEK AND YOU WILL FIND - you don’t seek, you don’t find

When Jesus was on earth he wasn’t just here as GOD, he was here as a MAN cos that was the only way he could be the PERFECT SACRIFICE (no ojoro – cheating…hehe), but he didn’t have the NATURE of MAN, he had the NATURE of GOD (that is what happens to you when you become BORN AGAIN, you take on the nature of GOD cos that is the only way you can overcome), so he was 100% man and 100% God. He came to prove that we too could be 100% Man and 100% God by him coming to live in us.

He was conscious of who he was and what he could do with who he was, so he turned water into wine, healed the sick, raised the dead, WALKED ON WATER and so on. Point being, HE KNEW WHO HE WAS.

NOTHING extraordinary can happen through until you DISCOVER WHO YOU ARE.

We have the life of CHRIST in us, what does this mean to you? Is it just a religious saying?

Hollywood script writers seem to know better about this SUPER NATURE than the Christians do, the bible says that the earnest expectation waits for the manifestation of the SONS OF GOD, earth is waiting for Christians to come to their FULL potential.

Do you know that rapture won’t happen until the CHURCH (The Body of Christ) comes to full maturity? Jesus is not coming back for a mediocre or weak minded Church, he is coming back for people who have activated the power within them and done mighty things on earth with the power of God deposited in them when they received Christ into their spirits. Remember he said – these signs shall follow those who believe, they shall speak in new tongues, cast out devils, heal the sick, if they eat any deadly thing it won’t harm them. So its automatic, if I believe then I can do the EXTRAORDINARY.

Ok, ok, another thing the HEROES learnt was that there is no selfishness with the POWERS (lol), it has to be used for the good of mankind and that is the WHY AM I HERE part, so don’t go thinking to rob a bank like THE TRANSPORTER, lol.

Let’s take a look at some of the things Jesus did when he was here AS A MAN and it will give you an idea of WHAT YOU CAN DO

- Turned water into wine

- Multiplied fish and bread to feed thousands

- He opened blind eyes

- Took coin from a fish’s mouth to pay his tax

- Walked on water

- Told Peter to go back to the water where he had fished and got nothing and at his word Peter went back there and needed help to bring in the catch


Now think back on all the things YOU can do with the LIFE OF CHRIST in you

Think of the many hungry people you wished you could feed?

Think of that blind friend you wished could see?

Think of the homeless children you wish you could make their lives better.

Think of that sick person you know and wished you could do more for than just say sorry?

Think of that person who died and you knew they shouldn’t have, they were so young, they could have lived and brought joy to this world.

Think of the day you saw someone getting robbed but couldn’t do anything cos you where scared the robber had a gun and you know what bullets do to humans right? Lol, now imagine if you realized that NOTHING COULD HURT YOU, what would you do the next time you saw something like that happening?

Think of the many ways you could affect humanity for the better if only you could overcome those limitations?


You can actually cause that change u so earnestly desire?

The life of Christ in me, what does this mean?

So just like in HEROES, you can join me on this journey of discovery; it would be a journey of seemingly ordinary people discovering we have extraordinary abilities

Cos' I'm thinking, hmmmmm, SuperMAYNE or what?

FADA in Heaven, wat are be dis one?

Someone added me on FB and I didn't know who d person was, I simply asked for a likkle bit of introduction and dis is what urs truly got

MuMu 1: I will like to get to know more of you but first I will like to describe myself! It is very hard to describe myself because we see only one side of us and usually the best one I think so. I am usual man with a lot of dreams. I am not looking for Mrs Perfect or a millionaire. I am not searching easy life either because life is never easy I know, I am not interested in pen pals and game-players. I need someone who is tired of being alone, someone who wants to love and to be loved. Someone who knows how to treat a man, a true gentle woman. Someone who is not afraid of an attractive man. Someone who knows what she wants. Someone who does not want to settle for the less and always looks for more. Someone who loves kissing and cuddling. Someone who loves a warm bed and a sexy man in it. What I'm seeking for? a long term relationship that could lead to good life, someone that could bring out the best in me, someone that I can trust, a woman that will listen to me when I need her, a woman i can give my heart to, someone honest, someone that will not lie to me, someone that will be there, for me when I need her, someone that we would both appreciate our high moral standards, respect ourselves the way we respect our self's.
Someone that would love me as if each day is our last day together and that would be by my sides as if each day is our last day ..together.Am.. looking for someone to love as well, Capture my heart. Someone kind and affectionate, fun and optimistic, motivated and active. A real person, who likes themselves and is comfortable, with who they are, even if not where they are. Someone who can keep up with me, challenge me and inspire me. And who is intelligent, has ideas, may be creative and has needs and/or expectations to be fullfilled.I'm looking for my soul mate to share life?s dreams with, someone who still believes in romance,fun,and is a true gentlewomen at heart. But i find it difficult to get someone that will be able to capture my heart, win my heart. A women that will wipe off my tears and sorrows for ever. A women that will be able to bring me back on my feet A women that will be able to bring out my precious gold, that has been threw into ocean. Because my life is full of tragedy. Am going through a hard problem right now. I went through your profile againand found out that you are better for me and I found out that we are compatible, the only missing .and would like you to introduce yourself in message,and you can add me on yahoo messenger or so that we can chat more better or

So if anyone can help him, please dp, cos I cant fit to do anitin for dis fela


derz moooorrree....

Mayne Jaci: thanks for the thesis, but, I'll read it next year

MuMu 1: really really still like you, and as I could see , you are soooo preTTY
I would love to stay in touch and become real good friends, and who knows one day if we meet again, maybe even more?
We will see, its up to you!

So here is my little description for the end:

I live in the capital city of UAE Dubai schooling at the American Uinversity In The Emirates, I am a cheer giver, I am a very artistic personand I am trying hard in my live, and hopefully I will end up in the law business one day!I like to keep myself fit and its important for me too look good.

If you give me the chance to prove it (give us a chance) I will show you that I am a caring person, sensitive, interesting, creative, optimistic, funny, a person you can always talk to when you feel like, tell your deepest problems, secrets, desires, wishes, ideas and dreams. I like to make new friends, to bond with people like you, and if you want to, we can build a great relation. You can always count on me, I can be your shoulder to cry on, I can lift your mood up if you are down, I can hug with you for hours just to make sure that you know that you have someone who cares a lot about you.

In a relationship with a woman I always like to know what she wants, I like to make compromises, I always stay faithful and I cant stand cheating. I love physical contact, I am very passionate, I like to make my woman happy when it comes to sex, and sex is also a important thing in a relationship- and I am not afraid or ashamed to talk about it.

So, I am looking forward to reading your reply and I hope that you like what I wrote!
XXX Kisses
FIKAYO/ you can call me DAVID

This is SuperStory, where fishes drown or even die of thirst - #lightupnigeria

Scene 1:

MD of ABC Generator Producing and Importing Company is sitting and watching the news. The Headline reads: “New Minister of Power vows to bring an end to the pain of Millions of Nigerians by solving the ailing Power Sector”, they go on to show him speaking as he outlines the steps he’s going to take and states timelines while also giving the progress report on what is already being done.
“Ha!” the MD says to himself, “If this problem is solved and there is constant power supply, I’m out of business. Generators are all I know to produce and sell; I have no idea or interest in other trades. I must act fast to stop this just as I have done in the past, I can’t let this happen”. He picks up his phone to make a call.

Scene 2:

In an undisclosed location, 3 men are standing and are discussing. Each is a representative of the following:
(i) MD of ABC Generator Company
(ii) MD of XYZ Bank
(iii) Minister of Power

For obvious reasons the three people in this transactions must not be seen together so all discussions will be handled by these middlemen. And the discussion is: MD of ABC Coy will pay “X” amount of money to Minister of Power and Steel monthly. Reason? To keep the “Generator” business running, all plans to provide power supply has to be stopped and to do that certain people have to be “taken care of”. This whole transaction has to be taken care of by Bank MD; he is to make sure the wire transfers cannot be traced. End result is: Power supply keeps deteriorating and people continue buying generator sets and MD of ABC Coy stays in business, Minister of Power and Steel is considered a failure by his people but the payments would cushion the effect and take care of him and his needs.

Date of each transfer is agreed upon and everyone swears to secrecy understanding what is at stake. Each one will disown the other if the word leaks out.

Scene 3:

A group of young Nigerians, tired of the incessant failure of the government to deliver on the promises made in every sector of the economy but with emphasis now on the Power Sector, take to the streets of the internet to voice their frustrations and with this use of technology they seek to make the term #lightupnigeria trend on a tool called “TWITTER” thus bringing the world’s attention to the situation and somewhat seek to force the hands of the government to do something about this

Scene 4:

A young pretty lady working at XYZ bank is made the Account Manager of ABC Company; she is put in charge of all transactions of the company and is told to hold confidential all matters pertaining to any transactions. She meets her targets quarterly and is paid huge commissions based on her performance. Back at home in the estate where she lives there has been no light for 9months and counting. No one had been able to explain what the situation is, at first the transformer was said to be faulty, it was replaced but the situation did not improve. She buys an ABC generator and keeps spending most of her salary and commissions on fuel and maintaining the generator. (Our young Sisi does not make the connection)

Scene 5:

A man is standing outside the delivery room of a hospital. His wife is in labor but the doctor says she is having complications and has to be operated upon. The hospital is running on ABC generator because they can’t rely on the power supply from PHCN (NEPA). For an unforeseen reason the generator shuts down, something just went wrong and the technicians rush to see that it is repaired. The doctors in the operating room are doing all they can to keep her stable till the fault with the generator is corrected. Hour’s pass and still they can’t find the fault with the generator. The woman is losing blood; the generator refuses to come on. The baby is lost. The woman dies. The man wails uncontrollably, he cannot be comforted. He returns home and sleeps in his tears. By 9:00am the next morning he is awakened by an alert on his phone. A certain account of his was credited with a certain amount of money from a certain contact for a certain reason as always by this time of every month. Our man is the middleman for “Minister of Power”. (Our middleman now widower does not make the connection, he’s sold the soul of wife and son for that alert on his phone)

Back to Scene 3:

Our young patriotic hearts keep the flag flying high on the streets of the internet. Joined by others daily, home and abroad they seek to make #lightupnigeria trend still. It still doesn’t, why? (That’s another SuperStory for another time)

Some of us think that to really #LightUpNigeria we need to:

- Find out who is involved with the whole sabotage of the Power Sector

- Trace the wire transfers obviously going on

- Publish these transactions to expose these evil hearts and cause unrest…

…or … keep crediting our phones and tweeting away, make t-shirts with the word #lightupnigeria written on it creating business opportunities for people, make hand bands and all sorts of fun things around this term, even organize concerts around it giving us more reason to party and dance away our sorrows (which stares us straight in the face the morning after)…..

Now who wants to #LIGHTUPNIGERIA????????

DISCLAIMER: uuhhmmm, can I disclain my head? Naaaaa.... THERE IS NONE!!!!!
