I am to speak on God’s behalf.
We ought not to court publicity for our virtue, or notoriety for our zeal; but, at the same time, it is a sin to be always seeking to hide that which God has bestowed upon us for the good of others. A Christian is not to be a village in a valley, but “a city set upon a hill”; he is not to be a candle under a bushel, but a candle in a candlestick, giving light to all. Retirement may be lovely in its season, and to hide one’s self is doubtless modest, but the hiding of Christ in us can never be justified, and the keeping back of truth which is precious to ourselves is a sin against others and an offence against God. If you are of a nervous temperament and of retiring disposition, take care that you do not too much indulge this trembling propensity, lest you should be useless to the church. Seek in the name of Him who was not ashamed of you to do some little violence to your feelings, and tell to others what Christ has told to you. If thou canst not speak with trumpet tongue, use the still small voice. If the pulpit must not be thy tribune, if the press may not carry on its wings thy words, yet say with Peter and John, “Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee.” By Sychar’s well talk to the Samaritan woman, if thou canst not on the mountain preach a sermon; utter the praises of Jesus in the house, if not in the temple; in the field, if not upon the exchange; in the midst of thine own household, if thou canst not in the midst of the great family of man. From the hidden springs within let sweetly flowing rivulets of testimony flow forth, giving drink to every passer-by. Hide not thy talent; trade with it; and thou shalt bring in good interest to thy Lord and Master. To speak for God will be refreshing to ourselves, cheering to saints, useful to sinners, and honouring to the Saviour. Dumb children are an affliction to their parents. Lord, unloose all Thy children’s tongue.

A simple Question
Arab spring or Islamic awakening they are all different agendas and revolutions or its just propaganda.
This ideology it’s causing bloodshed, economic decay whilst some pursue capitalism and extremism.
The past vanished, the present unpleasurable and the future uncertain just ruins and displacement what’s is wrong with this world. People killing each other over a false hope, false pride, false security such arrogators.
It is a fight for power dominance religion or its someone promoting their ” beef ” this has to stop it ain’t a game no boots on the ground approach has to stop!
What do we call these invasions spreading fear and destroying resources or it was a stronghold to build troops and creating a war on terror – terrorism the new headline this calculated use of violence (or threat of violence) against civilians in order to attain goals that are political or religious or ideological in nature; this is done through intimidation or coercion or instilling fear is the daily bread it’s not humane.
The reward for boldness is barbarism, the reward for order is manufactured chaos the reward for rights is elimination can some one answer a simple question can we say this is modern oppression.
“There are as many life missions as there are people. We are all unique. We are all important.” Janet Gallagher Nestor,

“Keep your head up, your faith strong, and your eyes open for the little miracles all around you…because they are there, just waiting to be discovered.” Mandy Hale
His birth transpired in one of the most humbling place – this gift was in good faith from such remarkable parents.
In the eyes of many was a threat, or a curse whilst many longed for such a day to arrive – His birth.
Great people of old had great anticipation for this day but they only had faith for it since they perished before its manifestation.
He came with life, truth and light
but at the same time pride, moral degeneracy, depravity and other corrupt tendencies was the culture of the day. His birth brought hate and brought love, His standard was so exceptional gifted with such erudition to a point that foolishness wouldn’t survive.
He shared His providence with those who understood His philosophy – that was epic !!!
Most embraced His sayings success was… As time went on the necessary evil was plotted,
and also it was a strange dragging approach. He died in thraldom yet clothed as King but perceived as Lord – phenomenal.
This necessary evil act they did was defeated unashamedly and His death was true birth to mankind for it to have faith love hope and in conclusion He was mentioned in this metaphor I quote
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to hispurpose.
For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to beconformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.
Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.
What shall we then say to these things? If God befor us, who can beagainst us?
He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth.
Who is he that condemneth? It isChrist that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
