JENNIFER KYAKA (ODAMA) KUSHIRIKI KUOSHA MAGARI BIAFRA MCHANA WA LEO


Jeniffer Kyaka (Odama)

Msanii wa Bongo Muvi anayeheshimika sana na jamii kwa kazi zake nzuri zinazofanywa na kampuni yake ya J-Film 4 Life dada Jennifer Kyaka (Odama) siku ya leo atakuwa akiosha magari yeye mwenyewe katika viwanja vya Biafra mchana wa leo. Ukitaka kumuona yeye na wasanii maarufu sana wa Bongo Muvi basi jisogeze pale Biafra uone mastaa hawa wakipiga kazi. Soma hilo tangazo


MTOTO WA MCHUNGAJI NA MWANAKWAYA KANISANI WANASWA KICHAKANI

“UTANITAMBUAJE kama nimeokooka, utantambuaje kama namuheshimu Mungu…”
Wimbo huu wa Injili ulioimbwa na Bony Mwaitege wengi hupenda kuusikiliza kama burudani lakini una ujumbe mzito hasa kwa wale wanaosema wameokoka.

Wanakwaya wa Kanisa la Tanzania Assemblies of God, Hanipher na Godfrey (mtoto wa mchungaji) walionaswa wakiwa kichakani.

Hivi karibuni mjini Iringa, wanakwaya wawili wa Kanisa la Tanzania Assemblies of God, mwanamke alijitambulisha kwa jina moja la Hanipher na mwanaume aliyesema anaitwa Godfrey, walinaswa usiku kichakani katika mazingira yaliyojaa utata, Risasi Jumamosi linakupa kisa kamili.

NI MAKABURINI
Tukio hilo la kushangaza, lilijiri kwenye eneo la Makanyagio ambalo lina makaburi ya awali katika Manispaa ya Iringa licha ya kuwepo na nyumba za wenyeji pia.

KAZI YA SUNGUSUNGU
Kwa mujibu wa chanzo chetu, wanakwaya hao walinaswa na sungusungu ambao siku za hivi karibuni wamekuwa wakifanya ‘patroo’ katika eneo hilo na la Isoka kufuatia kuwepo kwa matukio ya wakazi wake kuvamiwa, kupigwa na kuporwa mali.

SIKU YA TUKIO
Siku ya tukio, sungusungu hao wakiwa katika majukumu yao waliwaona wanakwaya hao wakiacha njia kuu na kuchepukia porini umbali unaokadiriwa kuwa mita 20 kutoka barabarani.
“Ilibidi sungusungu wawafuate hadi kule kichakani, ndipo walipowakuta katika mazingira tata na yenye maswali mengi bila majibu. Mbaya zaidi, yule mwanamke alikuwa na mtoto wa mwaka mmoja mgongoni,” kilisema chanzo chetu.
Wanakwaya wakifunguka kueleza kisa cha kuwa kichakani usiku mnene.

WAPEWA KICHAPO, WAJIANIKA
Chanzo kikadai kuwa, sungusungu hao waliwapa kichapo chepesi ili waweze kusema walikuwa wakifanya nini na wao ni akina nani, ndipo mwanamke huyo akaweka wazi mambo kwamba, yeye ni mkazi wa Kitongoji cha Isoka ilhali kijana huyo ni mwimbaji mwenzake wa kwaya lakini pia ni mtoto wa mchungaji wa kanisa hilo.

ETI?
Katika hali ya kushangaza, mtoto huyo wa mchungaji huku akiomba samahani kwa kunaswa kichakani, alisema eti kilichowapeleka huko muda huo wa usiku ni kumsaidia mwanamke huyo kumwingizia nyimbo za dini kwenye simu yake!!

AKIRI SI MWENENDO MWEMA
Pamoja na yote, Godfrey alikiri kuwa kitendo cha kuingia kichakani na mwanamke muda huo wa saa 2.15 usiku kilikuwa ni hatari kwao kiimani na hata usalama wa miili yao kwa ujumla.
Kiimani alikuwa na maana kwamba, kuonekana kichakani watu waliookoka hakutoi picha nzuri kwa jamii inayotakiwa kuhubiriwa ili watu wamrudie Mungu, usalama wa miili ni kama vile kuumwa na nyoka au wadudu wengine wenye kudhuru.

SUNGUSUNGU NAYE
Akizungumza na Risasi Jumamosi, mmoja wa sungusungu hao alisema haikuwa rahisi kwao kuamini kwamba wawili hao waliingia kichakani kuingiziana nyimbo kwenye simu.
“Hivi kweli mtoke barabarani muingie kichakani kisa kuwekeana nyimbo kwenye simu, inaingia akilini kweli? Labda bwana,” alisema sungusungu huyo bila kutaja jina lake akidai wana bosi wao ndiye alitakiwa kusema. Baada ya kuwatembezea kichapo na wawili hao kuomba msamaha, sungusunga hao waliachia na kuwaonya wasirudie tena kukutwa vichakani usiku.

KAMA ULIKOSA KUONA MWIMBAJI WA GOSPO PAUL CLEMENT AKIFANYA KOLABO NA MZEE MZIMA BEN POL..PATA UHONDO NA UTABARIKIWA

Nilichogundua katika hii kolabo ya mwimbaji wa nyimbo za Kidunia na mwimbaji wa nyimbo za Injili ni kwamba kuna hali fulani ya UPENDO kati yao. Si rahisi sana kuona waimbaji wa nyimbo za Injili na za  kidunia wakishirikiana na kuimba wimbo wa kumtukuza Mungu.

Ben Pol
Kitendo walichokifanya hawa jamaa ni kizuri sana na kimetufundisha mengi kati ya washabiki wa pande hizi mbili yaani wale wa gospeli na wale wa kidunia. Kila mtu atakuwa na maoni yake jinsi atakavyoona hii clip.

Rumafrica inawapa big up watumishi wa Mungu, na hasa Paul Clement kuweza kumshawishi rafiki yako Ben Pol kufika katika tamasha lako na kufanya kolabo na wewe. God Bless You..!! Kitu ulichokifanya ni kikubwa sana machoni pa wengi. Kuthubutu kwako kufanya visivyowezekana vimeleta UTUKUFU kwa Mungu.

Paul Clement (kulia)

Ushauri wangu kwako mwimbaji, kama Mungu atakujalia kupata mshiko kidogo jitahidi sana katika kazi yako ya uimbaji uwashirikishe watu wa nyimbo za kijamii kwani ukifanya hivyo utakuwa umewavuta kutangaza kazi ya Mungu kwa wale wadau wa Gopeli na wa nyimbo za Kidunia.

Ben Pol

T9umeona sasa waimbaji wa nyimbo za kidunia kama vile Linex, Alikiba, Barnaba, Beyonce na wengine wengi wameanza kuimba nyimbo za kumsifu Mungu. Rumafrica itakuletea baadhi ya nyimbo ziligongwa na vijana wa Bongo Fleva


Kama  hukufanikiwa kufika kwenye video shooting yake Paul Clement, basi hiki ndicho kilichotokea. Ni ben Paul alipata nafasi ya kuombewa na akaahidi kuwa huwenda siku moja atakuja rudi imba Gospel songs, lakini zaidi ya yote alipata nafasi pia ya kuimba  nyimbo moja na Paaul Clement, itazame sasa.

NABII FLORA PETER SIKU YA JUMANNE 16.09.2014 ALIFUNDISHA NENO ZURI SANA..TAFADHALI SOMO LITAINUA IMANI YAKO

NENO LA MUNGU LINATOKA KATIKA KITABU CHA NABII ISAYA 14:1-8
Biblia inasema: Bwana amelivunja gongo la wabaya, fimbo ya enzi yao wenyewe wanaotawala; hii ni wiki ya kuponywa na kufunguliwa, Bwana amelivunja gongo la waovu, yaani waovu wote waliokuwa wanakuloga, walioiba nyota yako, walioharibu mafanikio yako, wanaologa afya yako, ndoa yako, kizazi chako, Bwanaamevunja gongo la waovu wote. Amewavunja maadui zako, wachawi wote, waliochukuwa watoto wako.
Biblia inasema: Maana Bwana atamuhurumia Yakobo, atamchagua Israeli tena; Bwana amemuhurumia Yakobo, maana ya Yakobo ni watumishi wake, na ukisikia Yakobo amehurumiwa maana yake ni Mungu amelihurumia Kanisa lake, haijalishi ulitenda dhambi ya namna gani Bwana ameahidi kukuponya na kukufungua.
Biblia inasema : Naye atawaweka katika nchi yao wenyewe, na wageni watajiunga nao,nao wataambatana na nyumba ya Yakobo; tunakwenda kuwekwa katika nchi yetu, walikuhamisha wachawi, wakahamisha mafanikio yako, wakafunga uchumi wako, kazi zako, watoto wako, mke wako, mume wako lakini Bwana amekuhurumia. Bwana atakurudisha katika nchi yako, atakurudishia mafanikio yako, unakwenda kuponywa na kufunguliwa.
Biblia inasema: Na hao mataifa watawatwaa na kuwaleta mahali pao wenyewe, katika nyumba ya Israeli watamiliki; yaani Bwana anakwenda kukufungua, kukutoa ulipotekwa, ataugeuza uteka wako, atakwenda kukutoa kule ulipokuwa umeibiwa nyota yako. Yamkini waliiba nyota yako, mate yako ulikuwa unapiga mswaki, wiki hii ni wiki ya kufunguliwa kwako, Bwana anakwenda kukuponya leo, kwa damu ya Yesu. Tutakwenda kumiliki majumba makubwa, makampuni makubwa, pokea kuponywa, pokea kumili.
Biblia inasema: Na atawafanya kuwa watumishi na wakazi katika nchi ya Bwana, tena itakuwa katika siku ile, ambayo Bwana atakupa raha badala ya huzuni yako. Jinsi alivyokoma mwenye kuonea, jinsi ulivyokoma mji ule wenye jeuri; yaani Bwana anakwenda kukomesha mji ule wenye jeuri, yaani ukisikia mji ni mtu, kuna watu wajeuri kulalia maisha ya watu, Bwana anakwenda kuwavunja maadui zako, na anakwenda kukomesha mji ulio jeuri juu yako. Mateso, magonjwa, laana vinakwenda kukomeshwa, UKIMWI unakwenda kuvunjwa kwa damu ya Yesu Kristo.

Mchungaji Komba (mwalimu wa mambo ya ndoa)
Ufunuo 12:11
Biblia inasema: Nao wakamshinda kwa damu ya mwana kondoo, na kwa neno la ushuhuda wao; tunazo sababu za kumshinda shetani, tunalo neno la ushuhuda, wanaotembea na magongo wanafunguliwa, tunazo shuhuda ambazo tunamshinda shetani kwa damu ya Mwana Kondoo. Vipofu wanaona, vilema wanatembea, Kansa zinaondoka, wasiokuwa na pesa wanapata, wasiozaa wanazaa, waliokufa wanarudi, pokea muujiza wako.

MAMBO YA KUKUSAIDIA UNAPOWEKA MALENGO YA MWAKA

Najua si watu wengi sana wenye tabia ya kujiwekea malengo na hasa wapendwa. Ukiwauliza kwa nini huna malengo? atakuambia naenda kwa imani. Ukimuuliza imani maana yake nini? Atakujibu, kuwa na uhakika wa mambo yatarajiwayo tena bayana ya yale yasiyoonekana (Waebrania 11:1).

Tatizo la wapendwa wengi ni kutokujua uhusiano uliopo kati ya imani na mtu mwenye malengo. Kulingana na tafsiri ya imani ni dhahiri kwamba, kuwa na malengo ni namna mojawapo ya kuwa na imani, kwani ili imani iwepo ni lazima kuwe na matarajio. Hivyo unapoweka malengo maana yake unaifanya imani yako kuwa na uelekeo, kwa kujua mahali unapotaka kufika.

Kuna tafsiri nyingi za malengo na hasa kwa kutegemeana na kile unachotaka kukipata au kukifikia, lakini tafsiri rahisi zaidi ni hii. Malengo ni hatua fulani katika maisha ya mtu ambayo hajaifikia na hivyo anataka kuifikia. Na jambo la msingi, unapaswa kufafanua vizuri lengo husika ambalo unataka kulifikia. Ufafanuzi mzuri wa lengo au malengo yako utakusaidia katika kujiwekea mikakati mizuri yenye kutekelezeka.

Katika ujumbe huu mfupi wa funga mwaka ya 2010 nataka tu kukumbusha mambo kadhaa ya msingi yatakayokusaidia unapoanza kuweka malengo ya mwaka 2011.

Jambo la kwanza: Weka malengo yako mapema, kwa kuzingatia vipaumbele vyako.

Ni vema ukaweka malengo ya mwaka unaofuata kabla mwaka huo haujaingia. Mfano, kama mpaka sasa bado hujaweka malengo unayotaka kuyafikia katika mwaka 2011 basi tumia muda huu uliobaki kufanya kazi hiyo. Kwa nini nasema jambo hili, hii ni kwa sababu utekelezaji wa malengo yako unapaswa kuanza tarehe 01.01.2011 kama tukifika kwa neema yake Kristo.

Kwa hiyo kama tarehe hiyo ikifika hujapanga malengo yako jua kwamba tayari umeanza vibaya na kuna uwezekeano mkubwa wa kutokufikia malengo yako. Ikiwa ulishaweka malengo kwa kipindi cha mika mtatu, mtano au zaidi, bado pia unalazimika, kuyafafanua vizuri hayo malengo yako kwa kuzingatia mazingira yaliyopo na rasilimali utakazohitaji. Naam unapoweka malengo kumbuka kuyawekea muda wa hilo lengo kufikiwa.

Mfano; Moja ya malengo yangu kila mwaka kihuduma, ni kuandaa masomo yasiyopungua hamsini(50) na kuyaweka kwenye blog. Ukichukua 50 ukagawanya kwa miezi kumi na mbili unapata wastani wa masomo manne kila mwezi. Na hii ina maana kila wiki ni lazima niandae somo moja. Kwa hiyo ikipita wiki sijaandaa somo, ni dhahiri kwamba nitakwama katika kufikia malengo yangu. Nimekupa mfano huu rahisi ili uone umuhimu wa kuweka malengo mapema tena kwa kuyafunga kwenye muda.

Kwa uzoefu wangu katika kuweka malengo kikazi,kihuduma,kiuchumi, kifamilia, nk, nimejifunza na kugundua kwamba malengo ni muda, malengo ni mikakati na kisha malengo ni nidhamu uliyonayo katika kutekeleza mikakati na hasa ile inayohusu fedha. Muda ni ufunguo mkubwa wa kukusaidia kufikia malengo yako. Ukicheza na muda, huwezi kufikia malengo yako. Na kwa sababu hii ni lazima ujifunze kufikiri kimuda na kim-kakati kwa kila lengo unaloliweka.

Naam kufanikiwa kwa malengo ya Mtu binafsi, Shirika, Serikali nk kutategemea namna mtu/watendaji wa Serikali au Shirika husika wanavyotumia muda walionao, mikakati iliyopo na mwisho nidhamu yao katika utendaji wao. Naam, mambo haya matatu yakizingatiwa yatafanyika funguo za kufikia malengo yako au ya Shirika lako.

Jambo la pili: Weka mikakati ya kutekeleza malengo yako

Ili malengo yako yaweze kutekelezeka, sharti uwe na mikakati inayotekelezeka, vinginevyo huwezi kuyafikia malengo yako. Mikakati ni mbinu, njia utakazotumia katika kutekeleza malengo yako. Naam kwa kuwa malengo yako yanakuwa ndani ya muda fulani ni lazima na mikakati nayo iwe kimuda. Katika kuweka mikakati, kuna baadhi ya malengo yatakutaka ushirikiane na baadhi ya watu, sasa kuwa makini na nani unashirikana naye katika kuyafikia malengo yako.

Jambo la tatu: Fanya tathmini ya utekelezaji wako wa malengo

Watu wengi sana, huwa wanasahau sana hiki kipengele katika utekelezaji wa malengo yao, na ndio maana si wengi wanaofikia malengo yao. Tathmini unaweza ukafanya kwa vipindi viwili au vitatu kwa mwaka. Maana yangu ni kwamba unaweza uka-ugawa mwaka mara mbili na hivyo kuamua kwamba utakuwa ukifanya tathmini zako mwezi wa sita na kumi na mbili. Naam huu ndio mfumo ambao mimi binafsi huutumia. Hata hivyo kuna baadhi ya malengo huwa nayafanyia tathmini yake kila mwezi, ingawa tathmini kubwa huwa nafanya Juni na Desemba. Katika kufanya tahmini jambo kubwa ni kuangalia mikakati yako imekusaidia kwa kiwango gani kufikia malengo yako.

Jambo la nne: Boresha malengo kadri muda unavyokwenda, kwa kuzingatia tathmini unayoifanya.

Kama katika tathmini unayofanya mara kwa mara umegundua kwamba kuna lengo au malengo haya tekelezeki, basi kwanza litazame hilo lengo tena vizuri, kisha mikakati yake. Lazima kama siyo lengo, basi mikakati unayotumia haijakaa vizuri, na kwa hiyo unaweza kuliboresha lengo lako vizuri na hvyo mikakati yake pia. Mimi hutumia tathmini ya mwezi wa sita kurekebisha baadhi ya malengo na kisha kuboresha mikakati yake. Na kisha baada ya tathmini kubwa ya Desemba ndipo pamoja na mke wangu tunaweka malengo yetu ya mwaka unaofuta. Jambo la msingi hapa ni kuhakikisha kwamba malengo tunayoweka kila mwaka yanalenga kutufikisha kwenye malengo yetu ya miaka mitano mbele, tuliyokwisha kuyaweka tangu mwanzo.

Jambo la tano: Jenga mazoea ya kuyasoma na kutafakari malengo yako mara kwa mara.

Jambo hili litakuwekea msukumo wa kuhakikisha unatekeleza mikakati yako ili kuyafikia malengo yako. Mfano unaweza kuweka malengo yako kwenye Laptop/Computer yako, unaweza ukaweka malengo yako kwenye meza yako ya kusomea au unaweza ukaweka ‘Remainder” kwenye simu yako iwe inakukumbusha kila wiki kupitia malengo yako nk. Hata hivyo ni vema ukaweka, malengo/mikakati yako, mahali ambapo ni salama kwa maana ambayo haitakuwa rahisi kwa mtu au watu wengine kuona, Shetani asije akawatumia hao katika kukwamisha malengo yako.

HEAVEN'S FOR SAVED PEOPLE... NOT GOOD PEOPLE! - Ephesians 2:8-9:


 "For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast."

If you were to ask 10 people on the street, "how do you get into Heaven?" 9 out of 10 would tell you "by being a good person." Ask them if they think they're going to Heaven and most would say " Yes" or "I think so." If you ask them why they think that they will say "because I'm a good person." Here is the real deal according to God. Psalm 14:1-3: "The fool says in his heart, 'There is no God.' They are corrupt, their deeds are vile; there is no one who does good. The LORD looks down from heaven on the sons of men to see if there are any who understand, any who seek God. All have turned aside, they have together become corrupt; there is no one who does good, not even one." Romans 3:20: "Therefore no one will be declared righteous in his sight by observing the law; rather, through the law we become conscious of sin. For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God."

As we can clearly see here, the title "good person" cannot be achieved. Go back to Ephesians (it is the gift of God, not by works.) The only "good person" who walked the earth was Jesus Himself (2 Corinthians 5:2, Hebrews 4:15). Romans 5:9 says: "Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God's wrath through him!" In Romans 10:9-13 we read, "That if you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved." If we could get into Heaven by being a so-called "good person," then God would not have needed to sacrifice His Son on a cross.

If it took being a "good person" PLUS believing in Jesus to get into Heaven we would then be able to say to Jesus, "We did it, You and I," which would be as Ephesians declares, "lest anyone should boast." After death, if God asks us, "Why do you think I should allow you into Heaven?" and we answer Him with anything other than, "While I was on earth I put my faith in Jesus' death on the cross to pay my sin debt in full," we would be in for an eternity of regret. Don't gamble on eternity. Make sure you're trusting in what Jesus did for you, not in what you did!

RUMAFRICA INASIKITIKA KUONA WATU WANAOKUFA KUTOKANA KUPOROMOKA KWA GHOROFA YA NABII T.B JOSHUA WANAZIDI - WAMO RAIA 67 WA AFRIKA KUSINI

Rumafrica inasikitika sana kwa hali hii iliyotokea katika kanisa la Nabii T.B Joshua, kuona watu wanazidi kupoteza maisha yao. lakini tutambue kila jambo linalofanyika chini ya dunia hii linamakusudi mbele za Mungu. Tunatakiwa kukaa chini na kumuomba Mungu azidi kutupa nguvu kama Wakristo kwa kipindi hiki kigumu ambacho mtumishi wa Mungu T.B Joshua anapitia.

Kama binadamu, na weza kuwa na mawazo mengi juu ya hili jambo, kwani ni mara yake ya kwanza kutokea katika kanisa lake. Huu ni wakati wa kufunga na kuomba ili Mungu achukue nafasi yake kwa kupindi hiki kigumu.

Misiba hii inagusa bara zima la Afrika na dunia nzima, unapoona mwanadamu mwenzako anapoteza maisha ujue ya kwamba kutoweka kwake ni pigo kwako na kwa ndugu zake. Baadhi ya mitandao imeandika ghabari hii hapa chini juu ya ongezeko la watu wanaopoteza maisha yao kutokana na ajali hii mbaya.

Maiti nyingi bado zimefukiwa katika kifusi hiki na jitihada za uokoaji zinaendelea.
Idadi ya watu waliokufa kwenye Kanisa la Synagogue of All Nations (SCOAN) la Nabii TB Joshua nchini Nigeria inatisha baada ya Rais wa Afrika Kusini, Jacob Zuma, kusema raia 67 wa nchi nao wamepoteza maisha.

Taarifa ya Rais Zuma iliyotolewa jana Jumanne inasema kwamba vifo vya raia hao wa Afrika Kusini vimethibitishwa rasmi na ubalozi wa Afrika Kusini nchini Nigeria.
Mamia ya watu waliojeruhiwa vibaya baada ya kanisa hilo kuporomoka Ijumaa iliyopita.

“Huu ni wakati mgumu sana kwa Afrika Kusini. Katika historia ya karibuni ya nchi hii hatujawahi kuwa na idadi kubwa kama hii ya vifo vya mara moja nje ya nchi yetu," alisema Rais Zuma.
“Tunazihuzunikia familia, marafiki na jamaa za waliopoteza maisha.
“Taifa zima linaungana nao katika majonzi ya mama, baba. mabinti na vijana waliopoteza wapendwa wao. Sote tupo katika maombolezo,” alisema.

Jumanne jioni, Clayson Monyela, msemaji wa Idara ya Uhusiano wa Kimataifa aliandika kwenye akaunti yake ya tweeter kwamba serikali ilikuwa inahangaika kupata taarifa za janga hilo.
Zuma alisema alikuwa ameziagiza idara mbalimbali za serikali kuhakikisha kwamba ndugu wa marehemu hao wanapelekwa Nigeria kutambua miili ya ndugu zao na kwamba serikali imeagiza miili hiyo irejeshwe haraka nyumbani Afrika Kusini.

Taarifa hizo zimekuja kwa mshtuko kwamba yawezekana waliokufa ni zaidi ya 100 kwani jengo hilo la kanisa, ambalo lina nyumba ya kulala wageni, lilikuwa na watu wengi kutoka mataifa mbalimbali wakati linaporomoka.

MCHUNGAJI PETER RASHID ASHUHUDIA KUOA MWANAUME NA ALIVYKUWA MCHAWI MKUBWA KABLA HAJAOKOKA

MCHUNGAJI wa Kanisa la Glory of God Miracle Center, Peter Rashid Aboubakar (pichani), ametupiwa skendo kisha yeye mwenyewe akakiri kuoa mwanaume mwenzake.
Peter ambaye mwenyewe hupenda aitwe mtume, ameshuhudia mbele ya Uwazi kwamba ni kweli alioa mwanaume lakini ni zama ambazo alikuwa hajaokoka wala kupata upako wa kuongoza kanisa.

Awali, Uwazi lilipokea taarifa kutoka kwa vyanzo vyake kwamba Peter na utumishi wa Mungu wapi na wapi, kwa maana ana rekodi za uchafu, ikiwemo kuishi kinyumba na mwanaume mwenzake.
Chanzo chetu kilidai kuwa Peter alimuoa mwanaume mwenzake anayeitwa Abdallah Athuman na waliishi wote Ilala, Dar es Salaam.


ALICHOKISEMA MTUME PETER
Mchungaji huyo alipoulizwa kuhusu tuhuma hizo alijibu: “Kwanza hiyo siyo skendo. Huyo Abdallah Athuman Hamis, ni kweli nilimuoa, hata kwenye ushuhuda wangu nimeeleza, kwa hiyo siyo jambo la siri.”
Peter aliendelea kusema, alitoa ushuhuda mzito kwenye mkanda wa video uliopo kwenye DVD, akieleza matukio yake mengi aliyowahi kuyafanya kabla hajaokoka, likiwemo hilo la kuoa mwanaume mwenzake.
“Ndani ya huo mkanda wa video nimeeleza kwamba kabla sijaokoka nilikuwa mchawi, nilikuwa na wake wanne. Watatu ni wanawake na mmoja ni mwanaume, tena kwa sababu nilikuwa nampenda sana, nilimjengea nyumba Ilala,” alisema Peter na kuongeza:
“Niliishi naye kwa miaka sita. Mwaka 1998 niliachana naye baada ya kuokoka. Kwa hiyo siyo tu kuoa mwanaume, mimi nilikuwa mchawi kwelikweli wakati sijaokoka.”

KILICHOPO NDANI YA DVD
  • Timu ya Uwazi, ilitazama mkanda huo wa video na kubaini mambo kadhaa ambayo Peter aliyatolea ushuhuda:
  • Aliua na kula nyama za watu kwa njia za kichawi.
  • Alikuwa bosi wa wachawi ukanda wa Afrika Mashariki. Cheo hicho amedai alipewa chini ya bahari na Lucifer (Shetani).
  • Aliua mke wake wa kwanza na watoto kwa kuwatoa kafara ili atunukiwe mamlaka kwenye himaya ya wachawi.
  • Chanzo cha kuokoka kwake ni maradhi ya mkewe kupata hedhi isiyo na kikomo.
  • Alizaliwa kwenye ukoo wa wachawi, akasomea fani hiyo ya ushirikina na kufuzu kwa alama za daraja la juu.

KUTOKA SCOAN: USIMWOGOPE SHETANI! - DO NOT MIND THE DEVIL!

Mtumishi wa Mungu Daniel alihubiri Neno la lenye nguvu, "USIMWOGOPE WALA KUMUWAZIA SHEATANI" A;lisema, kama watoto, hata kama unapitia mapito gani, kuna ajenda, mipango imefichika au shetani amekuwa akitumia kukurudisha ulikotoka au kukuumiza. "Pambana na shetani mpaka dakika ya mwisho. Usikate tamaa! Chukua Nguvu unazozitaka kutoka kwa Yesu Kristo. Hakuna nguvu za kimwili za kumshinda shetani, hakuna akili za kimwili za kumshinda shetani; tunaweza kumshinda shetani katika Roho na nguvu zilizomo katika damu ya Yesu Kristo. Usiwe na wasiwasi na mapenzi ya Mungu kukusaidia. Kuwa mvumilivu! Mwache Mungu ajibu swali lako kutokana na ratiba yake na sio yako.Muda wa Mungu ndio muda mzuri. Katika Muda wa Mungu kila kitu ni kizuri.

"Kumbuka, kuomba kwako kwa umakini na kupokea jibu hutolewa kwa kila muamini. Kwahiyo Mkristo wa kweli ni yule anayemiliki kile anachokichukua kimuwezeshe  kumuondoa na kukemea shetani, na sio katika maisha yake tu bali hata maisha ya watu wengine

Ni mambo mengi alihubiri, nadhani utasoma hapo chini....

Last Sunday service nothing could obstruct God’s anointing that filled The SCOAN and brought healing and deliverance to the sick and the afflicted. From the soulful songs of worship to the day’s message of hope, God’s outpouring of grace was prevalent for all who put a demand on the anointing.

The man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, addressed the congregation on emerging issues before he moved on to the prayer line where he ministered to visitors who had come from all over the world in search of a touch from Jesus Christ through the man of God. Scores of people received deliverance and healing and were declared free, in the mighty name of Jesus Christ.


Earlier, Wise Man Daniel preached a powerful message titled, ‘Do Not Mind The Devil’, saying, “As a child of God, whatever your situation is, there is a hidden agenda, plan, entity or principality satan is using to undo you or harm you. Fight the devil ‘til the last minute. Don’t give up! Take the strength you need from Christ Jesus. There is not enough physical strength to defeat satan. There is not enough mental strength to defeat satan; satan can only be defeated in the spirit by the power in the blood of Jesus Christ. Never doubt God’s desire or ability to help you. Be patient! Let God answer your question on His schedule, not yours. God’s time is the best. At God’s time everything is beautiful.”



He urged Christians not to be troubled by satan or frustrated by his tactics. Instead, he said, it was their duty and right to challenge him boldly in Jesus’ name because they have the power of the name Jesus Christ at their command.

Selecting his proof text from Ephesians 6:11-13, he said Christians must walk in the spirit in Christ Jesus always, if they are to claim victory over the devil.

“Remember, the right to pray and receive an answer is given to every believer. Therefore, a real Christian is someone who possesses what it takes to overcome and cast out satan – not only out of his own life but also out of the lives of others,” he said, adding, “It is clear that we are not combating flesh and blood but the principalities and powers of darkness in the Heavenly places. That is, we are fighting against demons of all ranks, of all kinds and of all authorities. Remember, satan is our common enemy; He is the one attacking mankind everywhere. To combat satan and emerge victorious is not a matter of combining your own strength with that of Jesus Christ. Rather, it is a matter of total and complete removal of your own strength in order to put on the strength of Christ Jesus.”

Shedding more light on the characteristics required to emerge victorious over satan, he said Christians must begin to believe in God, stand upon His Word and build themselves up spiritually “because our enemy is a person but a person without body.”

He explained: “You cannot build one up spiritually on philosophies or on theories about the Word, or on the history about the Word. We are made spiritual by living in the Word and the Word living in us. This means that, it is not only committing the Word to memory which is valuable, but also letting the Word become an integral part of our being by meditation. Remember, meditation in God’s Word is a visit with Him.”

“Satan knows that he cannot stop those who have spiritual insight into Christ’s life. God gives everyone plenty evidence to believe in Him. There is nothing more ridiculous than to allow your present situation to cause you to doubt the fulfilment of God’s Word or promises for your life.”

The service closed with the ministration of the New Anointing Water by evangelists and many more souls were liberated to freedom from sickness and affliction, in Jesus’ name!

ELIMU DUNIA: KUFIKIRI VIZURI NA NAMNA YA KUJENGA TASWIRA

Niliahidi kuelezea namna ya kufikiri vizuri katika mfulilizo wa makala zangu hizi za maarifa ya utambuzi.
Leo nimeona ni vyema kama nitaimalizia mada hii, ili niweze kuanza mada nyingine.

                                                                                               Rulea Sanga

Njia ya kwanza:
Fikiri vizuri (jenga mfumo wa kufikiri vizuri); mfumo huu uwe endelevu; siyo usubiri upate tatizo ndiyo uanze kufikiri vizuri (usiwe kama zima moto).Hii itakusaidia kuanza kupanda mbegu njema kwenye mawazo yako ya kina ili maisha yako ya baadaye yawe mazuri; yatoe mbegu nzuri/ njema.

Njia ya pili:
Rudisha mawazo yako nyuma, jenga picha yako ya utotoni.Chagua taswira moja wakati ulipokuwa mtoto, jione kimwili, kimavazi na mazingira ulipokuwa (nyumbani /shuleni au popote). Kisha rudi kwako sasa hivi ukiwa mtu mzima; Jione kama ulivyo sasa hivi ukiwa unamtazama huyo mtoto ambaye umemjengea taswira; mtoto ambaye pia ni wewe. Mtazame na zungumza naye, mwambie ulidanganywa kwamba ni mbaya; huna akili, huna thamani, huwezi, hufai n. k; na wewe uliamini kwa sababu ulikuwa mtoto. Lakini sasa umekua; fahamu ukweli halisi kwamba wewe ni mzuri; una akili, una thamani sawa na wengine; unaweza na unafaa. Rudia zoezi hili mara kwa mara; kila wakati hakikisha unachagua eneo ambalo uliambiwa huwezi: Futa imani zote mbaya kwenye mawazo yako ya kina.

Nji ya tatu
Ni ile ya kufanya affirmation (kurudia rudia maneno) pamoja na kujenga taswira (visualization). Mfano: kila wakati jiambie naweza; ninafaa; nina thamani; najiamini. Imani ni muhimu sana wakati unajiambia maneno hayo (amini).

Njia ya nne:
Ni ile ya kutumia mshumaa. Washa mshumaa; uweke mbele yako juu ya meza au stuli au sehemu yoyote. Angalia ile sehemu ya mshumaa inayowaka moto (siyo mshumaa wote) kwa muda wa dakika 10, 30 au zaidi. Baada ya hapo fumba macho, uone ule moto wa mshumaa kwa kutumia macho yako ya akili (jicho la tatu). Utaona moto huo ukiwa wa kijani, bluu, njano au mweupe. Baada ya kuuona, anza kuchoma zile tabia au mambo yanayokukera au kuwakera wengine mfano: choyo, wivu, uzinzi, dharau, zichome moja baada ya nyingine. Wakati unazichoma utaona moto wa mshumaa ukiongezeka ukubwa, au utaona moshi. Fanya zoezi hili mara kwa mara, baada ya muda utashangaa kuona tabia au mambo hayo yamekwisha (umeacha tabia hizo).

Njia ya tano:
Ni ile ya kutumia kioo. Jitazame kwenye kioo ikiwezekana kila siku asubuhi na jioni. Tafuta zile kasoro ambazo uliambiwa na jiambie kwamba huna. Kama uliambiwa wewe ni mbaya; jiambie wewe ni mzuri, huku ukijiangalia bila kujiogopa kwenye kioo. Lakini kama uliambiwa huwezi, jiambie unaweza sana. Pia jikubali kama ulivyo na jiambie umekamilika, unathamani na unastahili.

Njia ya sita:
Ni ile ya kufanya Haipnosia / hypnosis. (Hatutajifunza inafanywa vipi, ni maada inayojitegemea) zile njia tano za mwanzo; tumeona ni njia ambazo unayapa mawazo yako ya kawaida mambo ambayo baada ya kupewa nafasi na muda hatimaye yatachukuliwa na mawazo yako ya kina, mambo haya mapya yataua au kukausha ile miche /miti iliyoota kwenye mawazo yako ya kina; miti hii ni ile ya mambo ambayo yanakukera au kuwakera wengine. Kwa ile ambayo imeshazaa matunda haiwezi kukauka kwani umeshaanza kuvuna (ndiyo maisha unayoishi sasa hivi). Njia hizi zote 5 ni za mzunguko. Hii njia ya sita ya Hypnosis ni ya mkato kwani yenyewe unaenda moja kwa moja kwenye mawazo ya kina na kuyaambia yale unayohitaji - ambayo ni kinyume na yanayokukera.

Nguvu ya uumbaji kitaswira (creative visualization):
kujipa nguvu.

(i ) Kumbuka: imani – hisia – matokeo.

( ii) Programu za zamani kwenye mawazo ya kina ndiyo sababu ya msingi ya kukwama.

( iii )Kuna aina tatu ya uumbaji kitaswira: sauti, kuona na hisia.

( iv )Kila mmoja ana aina yenye kutawala kwake awe anajua au la. Kuna wengine wanatawaliwa na aina mbili. Katika matumizi ya uumbaji kitaswira, tunaanza na aina yetu, baadaye tunajifunza nyingine.

( v )Ili kujua aina yako, jaribu kufikiria unachohitaji sasa hivi ili uone. Mwanzoni unaweza kusikia sauti inayokuambia hutaweza au ni mzaha ufanyao. Unatakiwa ufanye mazoezi mengi ili uweze kujenga uwezo.

( vi ) Mawazo yako ndiyo yenye kukufanya/kukuwezesha ujenge uumbaji kitaswira. Unachokiona kila siku ni matokeo ya kilicho mawazoni kila siku. Hivyo, bila kujua huwa tunaumba yale tusiyoyataka maishani. Uumbaji kitaswira unawakilisha utunzaji wa mbegu (mawazo) kutegemea ni mbegu gani tumepanda.

( vii ) Makosa yajitokezayo sana: usiweke nguvu kwenye kukosa, kwenye usichokitaka na kwenye usichonacho. Mfano: kama umepanga kwenye chumba kimoja na unataka kujenga nyumba yako, usijiambie nimechoka kukaa kwenye haka kakibanda au maisha ya kupanga yamenichosha.

( viii ) Unapokuwa kwenye uumbaji kitaswira, hisi au ona kama vile jambo limeshakuwa tayari.

( x ) Jinsi ya kufanya (hatua):
  • Tafuta mahali tulivu.
  • Tuliza mawazo yako.
  • Weka nguvu zako za mawazo katika jambo unalolitaka.
Ni muhimu kufahamu kuhusu makuzi yako kwani yana mchango mkubwa sana kuhusu maisha yako ukubwani.

OFFICIAL STATEMENT FROM THE SYNAGOGUE, CHURCH OF ALL NATIONS IN RESPECT OF THE FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 12, 2014 INCIDENT

“Emmanuel – God is with us.

“The pain of one is the pain of all. It is indeed a sad and painful moment for the families and friends who have lost loved ones. It is equally so for us in The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (The SCOAN), under the leadership of Prophet T.B. Joshua.

“On Friday, September 12, 2014, at about 12:44pm, one of the buildings on The SCOAN property unexpectedly collapsed, tragically resulting in death and injury. Nigerians and citizens of other nations were affected. This incident was preceded by the appearance of a strange aircraft which flew very low over the building four times and then disappeared.

“Since the day of this incident, The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations, its members and partners, have worked in collaboration with the Nigerian, South African and other nations’ authorities to ensure that survivors are rescued, attended to with the best medical treatment, cared for in the most humane and hospitable manner and reunited with their families, while those who passed on – martyrs of the Kingdom of God – are retrieved, identified and treated respectfully.
Amongst those we are working hand-in-hand with, are: The Federal Government of Nigeria, the Government of the Republic of South Africa, Lagos State Government, the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA), the Lagos State Ministry of Health – doctors and nurses, the Standard Organization of Nigeria (SON), the Red Cross, the Nigeria Police Force and various Non-governmental and humanitarian organisations and construction and engineering corporations.

“It is very sad that inaccurate reports are coming from some quarters that we are not cooperating with the rescue teams and other agencies in collating information and providing assistance on the incident. Contrary to this, we want to categorically state that the church has provided assistance when and where required and continues to do so – good Christians are good citizens.

“We emphasise our commitment to cooperate with all relevant authorities in establishing the cause of the collapse of the building.
The church views this tragedy as part of an attack on The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations and in particular, Prophet T.B. Joshua. In due course, God will reveal the perpetrators of this unfortunate tragedy.

“We wish to express our gratitude to all who continue to work tirelessly, show their solidarity and share their condolences in this grievous time, particularly all Government and non-Governmental bodies mentioned above, Diplomatic Missions, National and International media houses, society groups, traditional rulers, all concerned citizens and the residents of our local community, Ikotun-Egbe. We equally appreciate all members and partners of The SCOAN and Emmanuel TV, along with Christians and clergy worldwide for their prayers and support.

“To all those who lost family members and loved ones, please accept our heart-felt commiserations. No one knows by the present sign or situation what the future holds. We must therefore live each day as if it were our last and leave tomorrow’s trouble for the One who bore our troubles on the cross. We thank God for the martyrs and we pray for the family members and loved ones left behind.”

MABINTIPACHA WALIOUNGANA KUHITIMU KIDATO CHA NNE MAKETE

Hatua ya kwanza ya ndoto ya kuzama katika elimu ya mabinti pacha walioungana kiwiliwili, Consolata na Maria Mwakikuti (18) wa Kijiji cha Ikonda wilayani Makete mkoa mpya wa Njombe, inatarajiwa kutimia Novemba mwaka huu, wakati mabinti hao watakapofanya mtihani wa kuhitimu kidato cha nne.

Itakumbukwa kwamba walipokuwa wakimaliza elimu ya msingi mwaka 2009 kijijini kwao Ikonda, walikuwa na umri wa miaka 13 na katika ndoto zao kwa pamoja walisema wanataka kuwa wasomi waliobobea katika utaalamu wa kompyuta. Lakini, kwa sasa, wanasema wanatamani kufanya kazi ya Ukatibu Muhtasi.


Wanafunzi hao mwaka 2010 walichaguliwa kujiunga na Shule ya Sekondari ya Wasichana ya Jangwani, Dar es Salaam.

Kwa sasa wanasoma katika Shule ya Sekondari ya Maria Consolata iliyopo Kidabaga wilayani Kilolo mkoani Iringa.

Shule hiyo inamilikiwa na Kituo cha Nyota ya Asubuhi ya Wamisionari Wakatoliki wa Italia, kinachosaidia kuwatunza watoto wanaotoka katika mazingira magumu.

Wakizungumza na mwandishi wa habari hii shuleni hapo hivi karibuni, walisema wanafurahi kuwa miongoni mwa watahiniwa watakaofanya mtihani huo wa kidato cha nne mwaka huu.

"Tunafurahi, tunajiandaa tunasoma kwa bidii, mtihani uko karibu tunataka tufaulu vizuri masomo yetu, ili ile ndoto yetu ya kuwa Makatibu Muhtasi itimie," walisema Maria na Consolata, ambao wanatumia baiskeli maalumu kuwapeleka darasani, ambako pia wana kiti maalumu.

Pacha hao wameshangaza watu wengi kwa jinsi walivyo, ambapo kila mmoja ana madaftari yake. Wakati wa kufanya mazoezi au kuandika kazi wanazopewa, mmoja huanza kuandika, akimaliza na mwingine huandika.

"Wala hatupati shida tumezoea, kila mmoja anafanya kazi yake, mimi naandika kwa mkono wa kushoto na Maria anaandika kwa mkono wa kulia," anasema Consolata, ambaye anaonekana kuwa mchangamfu zaidi.

Shule hiyo ina wanafunzi wa kidato cha kwanza hadi cha nne. Ilianzishwa mwaka 2006 na hivi sasa ina jumla ya wanafunzi 183. Wote wanaishi kituoni hapo na wote wanatoka kwenye mazingira magumu.

Changamoto kubwa iliyokuwa shuleni hapo ni ukosefu wa nishati ya umeme, ambapo uongozi wa shule na kituo hicho unalazimika kutumia jenereta na umemejua, jambo ambalo mapema wiki hii Wakala wa Nishati ya Umeme Vijijini (REA), imewaondolea adha kwa kuwapelekea umeme.

Pacha hao walizaliwa mwaka 1996 wakiwa wameungana katika Hospitali ya Ikonda wilayani Makete mkoani Iringa.

Walifaulu mtihani wa darasa la saba mwaka 2010, ambapo kila mmoja alipata alama 151, ingawa walitofautiana ufaulu kwenye masomo yao.

Katika somo la Maarifa ya Jamii, Consolata alipata alama 29 na Maria alama 25, kwenye somo la Kiingereza, Maria alipata alama 36 na kumzidi Consolata aliyepata alama 34, wakati kwenye somo la Sayansi, Maria alimzidi Consolata kwa kupata alama 31 dhidi ya 29.

Wizara ya Elimu na Mafunzo ya Ufundi iliwapanga pacha hao kujiunga na kidato cha kwanza katika Shule ya Sekondari Jangwani jijini Dar es Salaam.

Hata hivyo hawakujiunga na sekondari hiyo, kutokana na hali yao na pia umbali kutoka Iringa hadi Dar es Salaam. Ndipo Wamisionari hao wakawachukua mwaka 2011 na kuanza kidato cha kwanza.

Walizaliwa kwenye Hospitali ya Misheni ya Ikonda mwaka 1996. Lakini, taarifa zao hazikufahamika hadi pale walipoandikishwa kuanza elimu ya msingi Ikonda na kutafutiwa mlezi wa kuwaangalia, baada ya wazazi wao kufariki dunia wakiwa bado wadogo.

MCHUNGAJI AKERWA NA UCHAFU WA ANTI LULU

Yapo madai kwamba, Mchungaji Christopher ambaye ni msaidizi wa Kanisa la Tanzania Assemblies of God ‘TAG’, Kinondoni jijini Dar amekuwa akikerwa na tabia chafu anazozisikia za msanii Lulu Mathias Semagongo ‘Antu Lulu’.

Msanii wa filamu Bongo, Lulu Mathias Semagongo ‘Antu Lulu’ akiwa Global TV Online.

Utashangaa sana kwamba, hayo yalisemwa na Anti Lulu mwenyewe juzi alipozungumza na gazeti hili kuhusu maisha anayoishi kwa sasa.
Lulu alisema: “Jamani, kama ni kubadilika najitahidi. Hata Mchungaji Christopher wa TAG, Kinondoni kwa Mchungaji Swai amekuwa akiniambia nirudi kanisani akaniombee.

Unajua yule ndiye aliyenilea kiroho nikiwa nasoma Sunday School pale, sasa anaposoma habari zangu anaumia, lakini sasa nimebadilika sana.”

JIFUNZE KUJIONA VILE MUNGU ANAKUONA

Unajionaje? Tulia kwa muda na fikiria ni nini unawaza juu yako leo. Mara nyingi huwa tunajiona thamani yetu kama watu wanavyotuona badala ya jinsi Mungu anavyotuona. Unaweza kujiona hufai sababu ya makosa uliyoyafanya zamani au kujiona kuwa huwezi kufanikisha jambo lolote kubwa n.k. Haitupasi kufikiri namna hii bali tunapaswa kufikiria Mungu anatuonaje.

Unapoishi ili kufurahisha watu wengine na kuogopa watasema nini juu yako unakuwa unawapa watu nafasi ya kupanga thamani yako. Kuna wanawake wengine wanaishi ili kuwapendeza wazazi wao hata kama kwa kufanya hivyo wanamkosea Mungu na kukosa amani katika maisha yao. Wengine thamani yao inawekwa na mume / mchumba. Anashindwa kufanya jambo analolipenda ili kuleta mafanikio katika maisha yake na hata kuacha kuufuata mpango wa Mungu sababu anaogopa kuonekana chini / hafai na mume / mchumba. Ameacha maisha yake yaongozwe na mtu na kusahau kutafuta kujua Mungu anamuonaje. Na hata inafikia mahali mtu anaishi ili kuwependeza washirika wenzie kanisani au watumishi wa Mungu ili wamuone anafaa badala ya kuufuata mpango wa Mungu. Mtu anadiriki kuacha huduma / karama Mungu aliyompa na kufanya yale anayoona yanapata kibali kwa washirika wenzie ili aweze kuonekana wathamani mbele zao.

Ukweli ni kwamba, thamani yetu ipo ndani ya Yesu Kristo. Yesu alijitoa na kufa kwa ajili yetu maana anajua kuwa tu watu wathamani sana. Kwa kifo chake tumepata msamaha, upendo na ukombozi wa kweli. hatuhitaji kuwapendeza wanadamu ili tuonekane ni wa thamani maana Yesu alishamaliza yote msalabani.


1Petro 1:3-4 Asifiwe Mungu, Baba wa Bwana wetu Yesu Kristo! Kwa rehema yake kuu ametufanya tuzaliwe upya ili tupate tumaini lenye uzima kwa kufufuka kwa Bwana wetu Yesu Kristo kutoka kwa wafu; 4na tupokee urithi usioharibika, usiooza na usiochuja, ambao umewekwa mbinguni kwa ajili yenu.

Unaweza kujiona huna thamani sababu ya yale ambayo yalitokea katika maisha yako siku za nyuma. kama jambo linalokusumbua ni dhambi ya nyuma ambayo hujaitubia basi tubu na omba rehema za Mungu kisha uendelee mbele. Kama ni hali fulani ya manyanyaso au kuonewa uliipitia usikubali ikuharibie maisha yako ya sasa, makabidhi Yesu masumbufu yako yote na kataa hali yako ya nyumba kukusababisha kujiona hufai au huna thamani.

1Petro 1:6-7 6Furahini sana katika hilo, ingawa sasa kwa kitambo kidogo ni lazima mpate majaribu ya kila aina. 7Majaribu yataifanya imani yenu, ambayo ina thamani kuliko dhahabu, iwe imepimwa na kuthibitishwa kuwa ya kweli kama vile dhahabu ambayo ingawa ni kitu kiharibikacho, hupimwa kwa moto. Ndipo mtapata sifa, utukufu na heshima siku ile Yesu Kristo atakapofunuliwa.

Neema ya Mungu ni zawadi kwa wote wamwaminio. 1Pet 1:10. Ni neema ya Mungu inayotuponya na kutupa uhuru wa kuishi maisha mapya. Ni lazima tubadilishe fikra zetu na kuikubali neema ya Mungu. Tambua jambo linalokusumbua, Tafuta / Tafakari njia sahihi ya kukabiliana na jambo hilo na mkabidhi Mungu na endelea kukiri ushindi katika Yesu. Kila mara jione vile ambavyo Mungu anakuona, yaani mwenye thamani sana mbele zake. Yeremia 1:5, Mathayo 10:28-31, 1Petro 5:7

Inuka, Timiza ndoto zako maana wewe ni wa thamani sana.

JE, IMANI YAKO IMESHUKA..SASA UNAWEZA KUIINUA...NI JUHUDI ZAKO..!!!

Rum 11.6
 
Huwezi kusema kuwa wewe ni mkristo bila kusimama kwenye imani. Kwa sababu Imani ndiyo uti wa mgongo wa mwamini kwa sababu huwezi kupata kitu unachokitaka bila kupigana vita.Biblia inasema(Kwa maana kila kitu kilichozaliwa na Mungu huushinda ulimwengu.) 1Yohana 5.4

Israel walipewa nchi lakini ilibidi wapigane vita,tunahitaji kuwa na imani iliyokamilika. Kwa maana kushindana kwetu sisi si juu ya damu na nyama bali ni juu ya falme na mamlaka ,juu ya wakuu wa giza hili,juu ya majeshi ya pepo wabaya katika ulimwengu wa roho. Kwa sababu hiyo twaeni silaha zote za Mungu mapte kuweza kushindana siku ya uovu. Na mkiisha kuyatimiza yote kusimama. Waefeso 6.12,13

Imani ni silaha ya vita kwa mkristo, kwa imani vinywa vya simba vilifungwa dhidi ya shujaa Daniel. Kwa imani moto haukuwa na nguvu kwa shadraka Meshaki na Abednego. Ukizimia siku ya taabu nguvu zako ni chache Mithali 24.10 Huyu imani yake ni ndogo ndio maana na nguvu yake ni ndogo. Imani inapatikana kwa kufundishwa neno la Mungu imani ni kitu kinachoshuka na kupanda na sio kwamba umetenda dhambi. Kwa sababu hiyo watu wangu wamechukuliwa mateka kwa kukosa kuwa na maarifa Isaya 5.13. Roho Mtakatifu anatembea katika neno la Mungu hivyo ni muhimu sana kujua neno la Mungu. Na walio na hekima watangaa kama mwangaza wa anga,na hao waongozao wengi kutenda mema watangaa kama nyota milele na milele. Danieli 12.3

KILA MTU ALIYEOKOKA IMANI YAKE INAWEZA KUSHUKA NA WALA SIO DHAMBI IMANI IKISHUKA.

Katika biblia baba yetu Ibrahimu anasifiwa kuwa ndiye baba wa imani lakini biblia hiyo hiyo inatuhabarisha kwamba alizaa na binti yake wa kazi pamoja na kwamba Mungu alimuahidi kuwa atakuwa na watoto wengi wasiohesabika kama mchanga na wengine kama nyota kupitia kwa mkewe kikongwe Sara. Ni rahisi kusema kwamba alikubaliana na mkewe Sara,lakini bado akili haiwezi kushawishika kukubali kwamba imani yake haikushuka na matokeo yake ndio vurugu tunazoziona mashariki ya kati baina ya mtoto wa Hajiri anayeitwa Ismael na mtoto wa Sara Isaka.

Ibrahimu alikuwa ni rafiki wa Mungu na Mungu ndiye aliyekuwa akimwonyesha mchanga na kumwambia auhesabu na aliposhindwa akamueleza ndivyo utakavyokuwa wingi wa uzao wake akiwa na maana ya watoto wa kimwili lakini pia alimwambia ajaribu kuhesabu nyota ambazo zilikuwa zinawakilisha watoto wa kiroho waliookoka ikiwepo mimi na wewe msomaji wangu.

Mwingine ni nabii Eliya pamoja na kufanya mambo makubwa ya kutisha ya Mungu katika mlima wa Karmeli hii ilikuwa ni baada ya kutoa sadaka ya kuteketezwa kwa kuamuru moto kutoka mbinguni na kisha kuwachinja makuhani wa baali mbele ya macho ya wana wa Israel huku mfalme Ahabu akijua. lakini baada ya hapo alimkimbia msichana Yesebeli mke wa mfalme Ahabu hapo imani yake ilishuka.

Petro ni binadamu mwenye rekodi ya pekee ya kutembea juu ya maji rekodi ambayo haijavunjwa,ni mtu aliyeona miujiza mingi kuliko mitume wote katika wanafunzi 12 wa yesu walikuwa wamegawanyika kwa kuwa karibu na Yesu kuna sehemu nyingine Bwana Yesu alikuwa anaenda na wanafunzi wachache sana mfano ni pale penye mlima wa ugeuko na maeneo mengine mengi sana utaona Petro yupo, na ndiye aliyeombewa maombi maalumu na Yesu kwamba imani yake isitindike lakini baada ya Yesu kufa ndiye ambaye imani yake ilishuka na akawaongoza wenzake kurudi kwenye kazi yao ya zamani ya kuvua samaki ambako pia hawakuambulia kitu mpaka walipokutana na Yesu asubuhi bila wao kujua na akawaelekeza watupe jarife upande wa pili na ndipo walipogundua kwamba ni Bwana. Kuna wakati hata taifa linaweza kushuka imani, biblia inatukumbusha kwamba baada ya Yesu kufa Taifa zima lilishuka imani na Bwana Yesu mwenyewe akashuka katika mji wa Emau ambako akaongozana na watu waliokuwa wakisimuliana mambo yaliyotokea mjini,nay eye akajifanya kuwauliza ili ajue wameshuka imani kwa kiasi gani,Biblia inasema wakamkazia macho,na kumshangaa kwamba kwa nini hajui yaliyomtokea mtu ambaye walitegemea awaletee tumaini.

Biblia inasema kwamba sisi tutamiliki hapa duniani na sio mbinguni. Mbinguni anamiliki Mungu na sio mwingine kwani shetani alishafukuzwa. Kama ni utajiri tunatakiwa tuupate hapahapa duniani na kumiliki. baada ya kifo ni hukumu

JINSI YA KUINUA IMANI ILIYOSHUKA
1. Amua kulala usingizi ,sio kiroho bali usingizi wa kawaida angalia Biblia yako Matendo 12.1 , 9 Petro alikuwa kwenye jaribu gumu kuliko wakati wowote katika maisha yake ya utumishi Yakobo ndugu yake Yohana alikuwa tayari ameisha uawa kwa upanga,na mfalme Herode akaona hilo jambo limewafurahisha wayahudi akamkamata na Petro na kumuweka kwenye gereza lenye ulinzi mkali usio wa kawaida, walikuwa wanangoja pasaka ipite naye akatwe kichwa kwa maana hiyo alikuwa anajua hakika kwamba atakufa kifo kibaya sana,sasa ili asiwaze na kuingia katika jaribu la kumlaumu Mungu aliamua kulala usingizi wa kawaida. Shetani anatumia sana kuwaza kwako ili kushusha imani yako.

2. AMUA KUSIFU NA KUABUDU,
hHapa inatakiwa sifa za ukweli ukweli sio zile nyimbo za sifa za kidini ati vijana wengi wamemuasi Bwana au ule wa kwenye kitabu atujua tu dhaifu maombi asikia. hapo sio sifa hizo. Tatizo ni kwamba viongozi wengi wa sifa huwa hawaombi Mungu ili kupata ili kupata nyimbo zinazotakiwa, wakati muhubiri ni lazima aombe Mungu ili kupata ujumbe. Soma Matendo 16:22,26 hizi ni sifa zinazoweza kuchanganya akili ya mtu,Paulo na Sila walimsifu Mungu na kupandisha imani yao.

3. KUOMBA MAOMBI YA KINABII
(prophetic Prayer)
Haya ni tofauti na maombi ya kawaida,ni maombi ya kusemelea au kutabiri ushindi kwa kutumia maneno ya Biblia,huku unamkumbusha Mungu ahadi zake. Maombi ya namna hii husababisha imani kuja juu ghafla na kukamata muujiza wako, je nitaishawishije akili yangu isiwaze wakati kuna hali ya hatari na kifo? hapo ni lazima kunena kwa lugha sana mpaka kieleweke kwa sababu akili haiwezi kukusaidia kuibeba imani yako,kunena kwa lugha ni sawa na kutema moto wa kiroho.
4. Kumbuka miujiza ambayo Mungu aliwafanya watu wengine kama vile mama mwenye kutoka damu kwa muda mrefu,Binti mfu wa Yairo. Yesu alitaka ushuhuda kwa lazima ili kuinua imani yake huyu mama alikuwa sawasawa na matatizo ya mtoto wa Yairo,Yesu alitaka Yairo asikie ili imani yake ipande.

1. Noa maarifa (panua ufahamu na uelewa wako) kwa kusoma

Usomaji wa vitabu utakufanya ujue mambo mengi katika mazingira yako. Hebu tafakari kama leo utasoma kitu fulani cha kukusaida au kubadilisha maisha yako, bila shaka utakuwa umeingiza kitu cha ziada katika maisha yako kwa siku ya leo.

Mfano: Kwa siku ya leo umesoma namna ya kumhudumia mtu aliyepata ajali (iwe ni ajali kazini, nyumbani, barabarani n.k)kwa kumpatia huduma ya kwanza. Kwa kujifunza namna ya kutoa huduma ya kwanza kwa mtu anayehitaji msaada utakuwa umesoma kitu muhimu sana cha kuweza kukusaidia popote pale na wakati wowote ule kwakuwa utakuwa unatambua na kufahamu nini cha kufanya. Kila siku soma chochote kile cha kukuongezea maarifa ya maisha na ipo siku utatumia ujuzi ulionao kujisaidia mwenyewe au mtu mwingine kutatua matitizo.

2. Kusoma kunaongeza utashi wa kutamka maneno vizuri

Unaposoma sana ndivyo unavyoona na kujua mengi, ni vigumu kwako kushindwa kusoma kabisa au kutamka maneno vizuri ikiwa unafahamu asilimia kubwa ya maneno. Kama wewe ni msomaji mzuri wa vitabu au unaperuzi sana kwenye mtandao wa intaneti utakuwa umesoma maneno mengi sana kiasi cha kuweza kutamka vizuri maneno mengi bila shida yoyote. Huwezi kuwa unafahamu maneno yote bali utajiongezea uwezo kutambua maneno na kukisia vizuri namna yanavyosomwa na kutamkwa. Fanya hivyo na utaongeza ujuzi wako wa kuongea na kusoma maneno vizuri.

3. Kusoma kunaongeza uwezo wa kuhifadhi kumbukumbu


Ukisoma na kuvutiwa na kitu ulichosoma bila shaka utahifadhi kumbukumbu akilini au kwenye karatasi ya kile ulichosoma kwa manufaa ya baadae. Ukiwa umesoma hadithi yenye mkasa wa kuburudisha, matukio yaliyotokea mahali fulani au historia ya kitu fulani, kumbukumbu hizo za kile ulichosoma zitahusisha mambo mengine ili uweze kukumbuka kitu chenyewe. Hivi ndivyo mfumo wa kumbukumbu unavyofanya kazi.

Mfano: Ili uweze kuvuta taswira ya hadithi uliyosoma kwenye kitabu fulani ni lazima utakumbuka picha ya kitabu chenyewe ndipo ukumbuke ndani mwa kitabu hadithi yenyewe ilikuwa inahusu nini. Ubongo unafanya kazi nyingi sana katika mwili wa mwanadamu, kwa kadri unavyojaza kichwa chako na mambo mengi mazuri ndivyo unavyoufanya ubongo uboreshe kumbukumbu halisi ya kile unachotaka ukumbuke.

4. Kusoma kunaongeza uwezo wa kufikiri


Unaweza soma kitabu chenye maelezo mengi ya kimafumbo au misamiati ya kukutaka kufikri ili uweze kuelewa, wakati ukiendelea kusoma utakuwa unajiuliza maswali mengi ni yapi majibu ya hicho unachosoma. Kwa kutafakari ili ufumbue kilichoandikwa utapanua fikra zako na hivyo kuongeza uwezo wako wa kutambua, kufahamu na kuelewa mambo kwa haraka. Faida moja wapo ya kuongeza uwezo wako wa kufikiri ni kuweza kutatua matatizo unayokumbana nayo katika mazingira yako kwa usahihi na ufanisi mkubwa.

5. Kusoma kunaongeza ujuzi wa kuandika vizuri


Ukiwa unasoma kila siku kwa walau dakika chache (dakika 15-30) tu iwe ni gazeti au jarida la habari, kitabu au kurasa kadhaa za tovuti mbalimbali kwenye intaneti, basi kuna uwezekano mkubwa wa kuwa umesoma na kuona mengi. Unaposoma sana ndivyo unavyoongeza ujuzi wako katika kupangilia na kuandika maneno vizuri. Makala nyingi tunazosoma kwenye magazeti na tovuti za kuaminika kwenye mtandao wa intaneti zinakuwa zimeandikwa na waandishi au watunzi mahiri katika sanaa ya uandishi. Hivyo unaposoma kazi zao unajifunza mengi kuhusu namna ya kuandika na kupanga kazi zako za kimaandishi vizuri.

6. Kusoma kunapunguza msongo wa mawazo

Inaaminika kusoma kunaweza kukuchangamsha kwa kuhamisha mawazo yako kabisa na kufuatilia kile unachosoma kwenye kitabu kwa wakati huo.

Mfano: Ukichukua jarida la vichekesho, mkasa wa maisha wenye kukupa hamasa au kitabu takatifu cha kiimani (BIBLIA au QURAN TUKUFU). Kwa kadri utakavyokuwa unasoma na kujifariji ndivyo unavyokuwa unatuliza akili na kuwa katika hali ya amani na utulivu wa nafsi. Utakavyokuwa na utulivu wa nafsi na akili ndivyo utakavyokuwa na afya njema kwa kuondokana na maradhi kama ya kuathirika kisaikolojia, shinikizo la damu (blood pressure) nakadhalika.

7. Kusoma kuna burudisha
Inafurahisha sana kumkuta mtu anasoma gazeti akicheka kwa kuwa amefurahisha na kile anachosoma. Hadithi za kwenye vitabu, mashairi na vibonzo (katuni) vya magazetini na majarida mbalimbali ni baadhi tu ya viburudisho unavyoweza kusoma na kufurahi. Ulimwengu wa vitabu una mengi ya kusoma, kujifunza na kuburudika kazi ni kwako.

HOW TO SAVE MONEY - PART 2 of 3

1. Remove luxuries from your budget.
If you're having trouble saving money, it's wise to start here. Many of the expenses that we take for granted are far from essential. Eliminating luxury expenses is a great first step to improve your financial situation because this won't impact your quality of life or your ability to perform your work significantly.

Rulea Sanga
While it can be difficult to imagine life without a gas-guzzling car and a cable TV subscription, you may be surprised how easy it is to live without these things once you remove them from your life. Below are a just a few easy ways to reduce your luxury expenses:
  • Unsubscribe from optional television or internet packages.
  • Switch to a thriftier service plan for your phone.
  • Trade in an expensive car for one that is fuel-efficient and cheap to maintain.
  • Sell any electronic gadgets going unused.
  • Buy clothing and home furnishings from thrift stores.

2. Find cheaper housing.
For most people, costs related to housing make up the single biggest expense in their budget. Because of this, saving money housing can free up a substantial amount of your income for other important activities, like saving for retirement. While it's not always easy to change your living situation, you'll want to seriously re-examine your housing situation if you're having a hard time balancing your budget.
  • If you're renting, you may want to try negotiating with your landlord for a cheaper rent. Since most landlords want to avoid the risk that comes with looking for new tenants, you may be able to get a better deal if you have a good history with your landlord. If need to, you may be able to exchange work (like gardening or maintaining the house) for cheaper rent.
  • If you are paying a mortgage, talk to your lender about refinancing your loan. You may be able to negotiate for a better deal if you're in good standing. When refinancing, try to keep the repayment schedule as short as possible.
  • You may also want to consider moving to a cheaper housing market altogether. According to a recent study, the cheapest housing markets in the U.S. are in Detroit, Michigan; Lake County, Michigan; Cleveland, Ohio; Palm Bay, Florida; and Toledo, Ohio.

3. Eat for cheap.
Many people spend much more on food than is necessary. While it's easy to forget to be thrifty when you're biting into a gourmet meal at your favorite restaurant, food-related expenses can become quite large if allowed to get out of control. In general, buying in bulk is cheaper in the long run than buying small quantities of food — consider getting a membership at a warehouse retailer like Costco if your food expenses are high. Buying individual meals at restaurants is the most expensive option of all, so making an effort to eat in rather than eat out can also save you lots of cash.

Pick cheap, nutritious foods. Rather than buying prepared, processed foods, try checking out the fresh food and produce aisles of your local grocery store. You may be surprised how cheap it is to eat healthy! For instance, brown rice, a filling, nutritious food, can come in large, twenty-pound sacks for less than a dollar per pound.

Take advantage of discounts. Many grocery stores (especially large chains) give out coupons and discounts at the check-out counter. Don't let these go to waste!
If you frequently go out to eat, stop. It's generally much cheaper to cook a meal at home than it is to order an equivalent dish in a restaurant. Regularly cooking your own food also teaches you a valuable skill you can use to entertain friends, satisfy your family, and even attract romantic interests.
Don't be afraid to take advantage of local free food resources if your situation is serious. Food banks, soup kitchens, and shelters can all provide meals for free to those in need. If you need help, contact your local Department of Social Services for more information.

4. Reduce your energy usage.
Most people accept the price on their utility bill each month without question. In fact, it's possible to greatly reduce your energy usage (and thus your monthly bill) with just a few simple steps. These tricks are so easy that there's practically no reason to avoid them if you're looking to save money. Best of all, reducing the amount of energy you use also reduces the amount of pollution you indirectly produce, minimizing your impact on the global environment.
  • Turn off the lights when you're not around. There's no reason to leave the lights on if you're not in the room (or in the house), so flip them off when you leave. Try leaving a sticky note by the door if you're having a hard time remembering.
  • Avoid using heating and A/C when it's not essential. To stay cool, open your windows or use a small personal fan. To stay warm, wear several layers of clothing, wear a blanket, or use a space heater.
  • Invest in good insulation. If you can afford to pay for a substantial home improvement project, replacing old, leaky insulation in your walls with high-efficiency modern insulation can save you money in the long run by keeping your house's warm or cool internal air from escaping.
  • If you can, invest in solar panels. As a serious investment in your own future (as well as the planet's), solar panels are the way to go. Though the up-front cost can be quite high, solar technology becomes cheaper with each passing year.

5. Use cheaper forms of transportation.
Owning, maintaining, and running a car can eat up a large portion of your income. Depending on how much you drive, fuel can cost you hundred of dollars per month. On top of this, your car will also cost you in licensing fees and maintenance expenses. Instead of driving, use a cheap (or free) alternative option instead. Not only will this save you money, but also potentially allow you to spend extra time exercising and cut down on the stress from your daily commute.

Investigate public transit options near you. Depending on where you live, you may have a variety of cheap options for public transit at your disposal. Most big cities will have metro, subway, or streetcar lines running in and out of the city, while mid-sized towns can have bus or train systems for you to use.
Consider walking or biking to work. If you live close enough to your job for this to be feasible, both are excellent ways to get to work for free while simultaneously getting fresh air and exercise.

If taking a car is unavoidable, consider carpooling. Doing this allows you to share fuel and maintenance expenses with the other members of the carpool. Plus, you'll have someone to talk to during your commute.

6. Have fun for cheap (or free).
While reducing your personal expenses can mean cutting frivolous luxuries out of your life, you don't necessarily have to stop having fun if you're trying to save money. Changing your leisure habits and recreational activities to more affordable ones allows you to strike the perfect balance between fun and responsibility. You may be amazed at the amount of fun you can have for just a few dollars if you're resourceful!

Keep up-to-speed on community events. Today, most towns and cities will have an online events calendar listing upcoming events in the local area. Often, events put on by the local government or community associations will be cheap or even free. For instance, in a medium-sized town, it's often possible to explore free art exhibitions, see movies in a local park, and attend donation-based community rallies.

Read. Compared to movies and video games, books are cheap (especially if you buy them at a used bookstore). Good books can be absolutely captivating, allowing you to experience life through the eyes of exciting characters or learn new things you might otherwise never have encountered.
Enjoy cheap activities with friends. There are almost no end to the amount of things you can do with your friends that require little or no money. For instance, try going on a hike, playing a board game, catching an old movie at a cheap second-run theater, exploring part of town you've never been to, or playing sports.

7. Avoid expensive addictions.
Certain bad habits can put a serious damper on your efforts to save money. In worst-case scenarios, these habits can become serious addictions which are almost impossible to defeat without help. Worse yet, many of these addictions can be extremely hazardous to your health in the long term. Save your wallet (and your body) the trouble of going through these addictions by avoiding them in the first place.
Don't smoke. Today, the harmful effects of smoking are well-known. Lung cancer, heart disease, stroke, and a variety of other serious illnesses are known to be caused by smoking.. On top this, cigarettes are expensive — depending on where you live, up to about $14 per pack.

Don't drink excessively. While a drink or two with friends won't hurt you, regular heavy drinking can cause serious problems in the long run, like liver disease, impaired mental function, weight gain, delirium, and even death. In addition, nursing an alcohol addiction can be a massive financial burden.
Don't do addictive drugs. Drugs like heroin, cocaine, and methamphetamine are extremely addictive and can have a variety of seriously harmful (even lethal) effects on your health and can be much more expensive than alcohol and tobacco. For instance, country musician Waylon Jennings is purported to at one point have spent over $1,500 per day on his cocaine habit.
