What does Christmas mean to you ?

Christmas Musings

I know we are in that special spirit of Christmas all around the world no matter what time it is in the world right now. With most dining tables, big or small filled with Chicken, beef, rice, pasta and all sorts of delicacies there is in the world. I myself will likely make some pounded yam and egusi soup for my enjoyment today, all my fellow Africans know what I mean now, hopefully I’m really inspired.

While I lay awake this early morning of Christmas, 3:00am to be precise, I start to ponder on what Christmas means to me and this was what I came up with remembering the Christmas message I was opportune to have listened to recently by my Man of God, Rev. Chris Oyakhilome. I write:

Christmas to me means Christ in me; Christ in me means Christ is Light for me.

Christ in me means that Christ has become my light and there are three basic things that Light connotes to me. They are:


 Since Christ is in me, I now have a purpose. My life now has a meaning. I no longer run this race of life with uncertainty (1Corinthians 9:26). Unlike many, everyday there is a purpose for my existence. Halleluiah!!


I now have knowledge. Christ has been made unto me wisdom. I can never be confused in life because knowledge is now inside of me. Even when nobody knows it, I do because Christ, knowledge is in me. In any situation or circumstance I find myself, all I need to do is to tap into the wisdom inside of me. Thank you Jesus.


Whenever Light comes, there is development. I just keep getting better, always. The glory is an ever increasing glory in my life. Every time our spirits get engaged in contemplating the Glory of God, we become that Glory that we see, as we study God’s word. That’s why I tell myself “Hannah, it CANNOT get worse for you, it can only get better, you are born again and Christ (the anointing) now lives in you”.

Christmas to me means Christ in me; Christ in me also means Christ is Life to me.

Christ being my Life means to me that, He is my…..


Christ is my source, my unending source. I’ll never run dry in life. In everything I just know that I’ve got a source and a very reliable one at that in the person of Jesus Christ our Lord. I now live in abundance in all things that pertain to life and Godliness. With this consciousness, I know I can never be poor, I cannot fail in life. This is not because of how much I’ve got in my bank account. I choose not to see my wealth through the eyes of the world, but by the Word. I’m always prospering, Glory to God!!


Not only does He supply me or brings to me, he makes sure I have in abundance, I never run dry. I’m always glorious in health, relationship and all that concerns me. This is how Life is for me now that I have Christ.


I give life to everything I touch. Whatever I get involved in, turns out a success. I’m definitely a winner. Christ has now become my Life. Halleluiah

There must be something you get in your spirit as you celebrate this season. The song is not enough, the carols and jingle bells is not enough, neither is the plenty food and drinks enough. You must become LIGHT AND LIFE conscious. This is what He came to make me and you, and do through you and I to our world.

I am THE BLESSING that Christ has given to this world. This is my consciousness as I go about my life. I know that when I come, the blessing has come. So, even today and throughout this season, even in the coming year, square up your shoulders, be bold as you visit and celebrate with your family and your world, because when you arrive in their midst, the blessing has arrived.

Remember ” You are born again, born into His presence where there is fullness of Joy and at His right hand where there are pleasures evermore” 2 Corinthians 5:17

If you are not born again, then your life is yet to begin. Please get in contact with someone you know who is and let the person lead you to Christ. Life begins in Christ and His arms are wide open to receive you today.

Or you can say these words with me and as you say them, mean them from your heart:

“Dear Jesus, I believe that you died for me, I believe that you are risen from the dead and today I take you as my Lord and personal saviour. I choose to follow you and live the life you’ve called me to live. Thank you for accepting me as your child. I’m born again” Halleluiah!

So now that you are born again, you will have to Identify  yourself with the body of Christ, get yourself to a bible based teaching ministry and get committed. This will help to groom you and help take you to the next level in your fellowship with the Master. I love you and welcome to the family of God, of Lights.

So rounding up, Christmas means:  I am in Christ Now, He lives in me Now and He lives through me Now.

If you haven’t believed this then you don’t know what Christmas means. I trust we believe this and more.

Have a beautiful day, remember we are still celebrating our risen king and our lives all together (the body of Christ)

I love you all soo much, plenty “Huggs and kisses” from me.

My Letter to our Lord Jesus

Christmas Musings

ImageDear Lord Jesus,

I write this letter in tears, not tears of sadness or mourning, no not that kind of tears lord.

I’m crying out in awe of you. Just here in my room trying to fathom how awesome someone can be to love this much, just to thinking of how you would be submissive not just to life but to death, to the cross, u know,..I stand amazed.

Since I was born, I heard stories of you and what you did for the world, of how you subjected to the will of the Father to bring salvation and eternal life (ZOE) to all men even when it meant that you would be crucified on the cross. I mean these are people who you never knew of before or had any prior relationships with.  I was told of how you lived your life, the extent of sacrifice you made, the vices and temptations of life that you overcame, just so you could fulfill your mission which was to save my life, Oh dear Lord I stand amazed.

In 2001, I decided to identify myself with you by accepting you for what you did for me and every man who lived and who will ever live in this world. I accepted you as my Lord and personal Saviour and received your Holy Spirit who now lives in me to be with me since you no longer live on earth physically. You see, being born again exposed me to the depth of your love for me. It brought me to that place where I realized that even if I was the only human who was created, you still would have come and died for me, I still stand amazed.

To be honest, I wondered how I could live this life you wanted for me, a life pleasing to the father, because, you see, I saw you as my WAY, my TRUTH and my LIFE *oh rakabasojote* (speaking in tongues), You are to me my Icon. Then I realized that you didn’t just stop at laying down your life for me to give me eternal life, (as if that wasn’t enough) you continued by leaving with me the gift of the Holy Spirit to live in me, meaning that you didn’t leave me alone to go through this life, you had in me a helper, a standby, a comforter, a strengthener, a guide, an advocate, the anointing and boyyy have I been soo privileged and blessed to have you live inside of me, it has made my  life easier and worth living.

This realization and consciousness has made me a champion in life. By the epignosis (revelation knowledge)of your word, I’ve been able to ginosko (know) you and understand what this package of salvation you gave me is all about. The eyes of my understanding has been flooded with light and indeed it has been a sweet experience, as you’ve steered me in the right path not leaving me helpless. It has been Upward and Forward since I met you.

Our relationship not only saved my life, but with all that you’ve invested in me, I’ve been able to save others and bring solution to other lives (you see, you not only gave me the fish, you taught me how to be a fisherman ). It has made me a saviour, because of you my life has now become the good news.  Little wonder, we say we are the reason for the season. Oh, how you love me,  and what a testimony you have made me because you are more than a testimony.

You are the best friend any one could ever have, and you’ve taught me what friendship is all about. You keep being a true definition of Love to me. Oh how I love you! Though sometimes I have made mistakes and gone against your plan and will for me, you never pushed me away, instead, the warmth of your embrace gave me peace, you never shut me out. I still stand amazed.

Oh, Jesus, you are my shepherd, You are my guide. You are the Lord of my Life, You are my King.

You are my Increase, You are my song. You’ve been the potter as I’ve been your clay

You are the strength of my Life, You are my peace. You are my helper, You are my God

Oh, Jesus you are more than enough for me.

So today marking your birthday, I celebrate you and not only your death, but your resurrection from the dead (yaaaaaayyyyy you’re not some dead God, you are alive and alive in me for that matter). I wanna say thank you for being such a wonderful friend indeed. I worship you today, with the fruit of my lips, from the depth of my heart, with the lifting up of my hands, I say you are Great and Greatly to be praised.

Precious Jesus, I thank you for your blood, I thank you for your body that was broken for me and I remember all you’ve done for me, no I don’t forget. Thank you for the perfect sacrifice that you wrought in victory, all for my sake.

Thank you soo much dear friend, Lord and Saviour.

I love you.

Yours truly,

I know all my readers have this same testimony as I have about our mutual friend and saviour. So as you are reading this right now, I want you to live this Christmas season with the consciousness that “YOU ARE THE REASON FOR THE SEASON”. Thank you for being the Jesus that the world now sees.

I love you all and have your self a very merry Christmas filled with plenty of joy to share around to your world.

Stay Illuminating, muah.

So,.today is the 15th of December,..Wow, (dancing) it’s the end of the year and most of us have been thinking on how well the year went for us,..more like we are evaluating our accomplishments, placing scores on several aspects of our lives,..including our Career, Education, Jobs, Family and a whole lot of other areas, as some of us are counting the number of chicken they will eat on christmas day, of course i follow join the cue, lol.  Basically,..before una begin to salivate on top chrismas matta,   today’s post will only help on recreating our focus on what should be the most important considerations in our lives.

I know you were blessed by the previous post that was simply informative on what Commitment should be on, and that being said,..i would quickly list out the four most important areas of commitment,..ok guys here they are ……….. tadahhh!!

1. Commitment to God the Father, Jesus the Son and the Holy Spirit through fellowship.

2. Commitment to the work of the ministry through soul winning and partnership, 

3. Commitment to your purpose i.e the purpose of which God created you.

4. Commitment to our World 

And that’s it on today’s post, I’ll definitely shed more light on the individuality of them all, and show in detail how we can go about them.

I’m really excited about this “uuuuhhhh” Series, because knowledge of this would definitely set us on the right course in life and we will find that our lives will only move from one level of Glory to the next.

God bless you all,..till next time,...kip Illuminating

A Commitment is a responsibility and it is also a call to duty. comittt

Jesus is our Lord, our Hero and our Guide, every one of us is given a responsibility to take the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ to the ends of the earth and to demonstrate the character of the Holy Spirit.

Therefore, statement of commitment every day of our lives is …….

              “As long as I live,..the Gospel will not suffer any loss in my hands, as i would preach this Gospel as though i  were the only man given this responsibility”

Having this consciousness as we go about our daily lives will help us fulfill our destiny in God as regards the Gospel. That way, Our lives will be a sweet smelling savor unto God, because we have taken God’s number one business as our own.

Note: God is interested in every single man on this earth, so don’t just get born again and relax, go out and share the same gospel that you were told with the rest of your world,..he loves them as much as he loves you.
