Written by Anthony Everest

Image is very powerful & deceptive. Use it well. Some brands thrive off this using it’s influence. Lucifer the bright morning star is boss at this.

How else could gospel acts get led astray from the church. It may razzel dazzle but that don’t mean it’s not a hassle frazzle.

There’s nothing like living from a place of self love. It’s absolute ..’ Many will kill to know this perfection. Isn’t it ironic. The devil is in the detail.

One of my clients said: “Smile, #love all and #trust none”. Deeply profound. #Realtalk. She’s only 18.

Love is not a prison. The rest is a waste of time ..’ Love is the dream. Let no one sell it to you. God is love 🥰.

Love is friendship. This they won’t understand.

Who can be against you when God is for you. Even thou my blood presure is high, this makes me #smile ..’ – #In14Ways

Dear #God: Shall I tell them #In14Ways #GodFirst #GodIsLove

They wear robes. They are tan. They are brown. They are tall. They look like us. But much taller & friendlier ..’ – Aremuorin

#MercyfulGrace

Dear God

I’m awake again. Some didn’t make it through the night. It wasn’t their gift. Good morning.

God loves me – He’s not infatuated. He loves me in all my beautiful imperfections.

Fathers need to love their children – as much as mothers do, cuz no other father would love your child, like you could.

But then again, many fathers were never loved. So, they could not fathom, (understand) / know, what Love* is ..’

This is somewhat spiritual. Dig out some history on ‘The Original Waste Man Dad’ ..’

Why did I spend my precious moments with people who are miseducated, miserables; projecting their sadness and embittered souls – thinking, it was my fault?

Lovers of self, money and rooters of evilness. Seekers of discords. Champions of luciferianism.

Worst still, occupying them in my solice and peace, in my time. Hope has walked through that door and I have my refuge at last.

Love. God is. Amen. I pray for you. May God forgive you

Lord Jesus – #MercyfulGrace

If you know you can’t handle the facts don’t come near me with your ignorance cuz I will redirect you to the truth. #MercyfulGrace

We need to #pray.Dear #God. Help us.Where has #the love gone? Unite us again. Abba !!! Amen ..’

#MercyfulGrace

I follow only God and no one else ..’

There is nothing above love ..’

The Prayer – ‘Sunday Confessions’

Sometimes when I process the ‘White Jesus’ – game; I bow to ‘White Supremacy’, for a moment, for a game well played.

– Aremuorin

Merciful father, our redeemer, ancient of days & lover of our soul. We honour you forever. Thank You  for always letting us triumph in Christ & for always answering our prayers.

 May your word remain true and potent in our lives. Lord, cleanse us from all un righteousness & anything that may hinder our prayers, give us humble hearts and a hunger for you In Jesus name. Let your word be our anchor forever.


We declare we have the mind of Christ & seek things above with eternal value.
Lord thank you for the dawning of a new season, the end is better than the beginning thereof, therefore, the floodgates of heaven are opened over us.

We enter a season of victory, success, divine health all round. We come against any devourer, distraction & fear of the unknown, knowing you alone controls the entire universe & times & seasons are in your hands. We boldly declare that you have the final say over our individual lives.

By your Word, O Lord, sustain our joy & gladness, let our joy not suddenly be taken away. We come against any form of spiritual dryness, depression & stagnancy in Jesus’ name

We take authority over any spirit of discouragement, doubt, fear, terror, unbelief, sin, intimidation and confusion. We rebuke every spirit of  sudden & untimely death, in Jesus Mighty name

Through the leading of the holy spirit, lord expose, unveil the intention, motives of every one connected to us & forcefully deliver us from household wickedness, users, unfriendly friends, wolves in sheeps clothing, enemies within, evil competitors , destiny killers & destroyers.

We decree no one can alter nor derail our divine destinies because our lives are hidden in Christ with God. Lord, let your word open our eyes & ears to the things of the Spirit, we bind any strongman associated with spiritual blindness and deafness. Above all, whatever it will cost us, may we make heaven at last for that is what truly matters.

Thank you for answered prayers  In Jesus Mighty Name !!!

MercyfulGrace Diaries with Love – ‘Holistic Truth’.

image

Being raised in a right winged xtain family is not the easiest thing in the world. The pressure alone to be perfect, is enough to drive one insane, or to an early, grave. Such, is religion, and the circus around it, institutionally.

image

Not everyone thinks like a fool, even thou they are xtains or not. Took me two decades to work this out. Religion is just a mask. Love is the holistic truth. The rest is bull**it. Being a xtain does not guarantee you the kingdom from of God. You have to be faithful to it.

Life is too short to be spent around negative people looking for people to power monger and flex their conflicted issues over. Wrong no. Try again. I’ll hit the, unfriend and block button, prior to that, happening.

You get only one shot at life. Mine is beautiful and full of beautiful greatness ..’ He loves me now, (Jesus). How do you like me now?

image

I find freedom in letting go of the things I don’t need. No one owns change. You are exactly, as you say you are. I am loved. Amen ..’

I’m not living for glory. I’m not living for trophies. I’m living for love. There’s so much more beyond the sky. This is only temporary.

Be careful who you let into your space. Some people will violate it violently, without remorse, to kill, steal and destroy by hook, or crook. I find freedom in loving me !!!

Get a puppy if you want cuddles, but not a dog !!! And make sure you train them well, before they, become one ..’ If your lover is not your friend, I don’t know, what the hell, you are doing there ..’ #Self #Love

Be your own best friend ..’

MercyfulGrace Diaries with Anthony Everest – ‘I Sing’

image

I saw the presence of a ‘Father’, and a ‘Son’, regally sat, side by side, ruling with authority, in tanned robes on a throne.

I looked like an, image of, but lowly, and nothing in size, in comparison, at their feet. I was forbade to make eye contact with the glory, until it was revealed !!! It was magnificent, but it was love ..’

image

I realized after, writing the song – that I was given. It was the Great one, and Jesus is real ..’ How can I ever forget !!!

It was quick, like a lightening bulb, to my fragile brain. My head failed to compute; immediately, or recreate the image. It took a while to recapture. Years! And, to understand.

Their countenance, was – ‘uhmm hmm’. Now you know. And it was taken away. I saw this, as I lifted up my head, from where I sat, to give thanks, for this great song. This is a testimony and it is, true !!!

MercyfulGrace Diaries with Worship – ‘Graham G O’Leary’

image

MercyfulGrace.com - Worship

‘Worship is not a ‘thing’ it cannot be owned, bought, sold or marketed to the church. You cannot get royalties from it, accolades, standing ovations, tv appearances, radio play. It is not a career, a hobby, it has no stage, no glory in itself. But worship is surrender, sacrifice, selfless, given freely, not self seeking but seeking the one to whom all worship is due.

Worship asks for nothing but gives everything, worship is a lifestyle, it permeates our very being, it is who we are and what we do in thankfulness to our Lord and Saviour, it has no style, but honour, no desire, except to love, no ambition, except to be worthy, it is an outward expression of the inward condition of our hearts ..’

– Graham G O’Leary

Amen. Beautifully spoken! This is an epiphany moment for me right here. I just remembered my first major record deal audition where I finished singing to them, offering me a million pound deal and God said I should say no. I proceeded after to say yes after a minute of self deliberation and tore my larynx one week later as the leader of the boy band of the project. It took me over a decade to rehabilitate my vocal chords. This is deep. Thank you for sharing this.

#MercyfulGrace

– When God Speaks To Me

Helen Baylor – Any gospel or inspirational music fans out there. I was revisiting her albums today – and this song touched me all over again ..’ There’s a great line ‘He’s The One You’ve Been Waiting For’ …

and thought, imagine all atheists and agnostics got this revelation – like I did, when I was a teenager. I don’t know why. I just loved the sound of God and his presence. Its an internal feeling.

I must admit, pop music / and the industry did pollute my purity to some extent, but at least I know more about the real world and the difference between been saved and not.

In the same sense, having some gospel artistes as clients doing music public relations for them, opens your eyes to a lot of hypocrisy in the game. Its a music business after all. There’s more mess to clean up; with them, than with circular artistes; because of their hypocrisy backlash.

Bad Religion at its finest ..’:

The gospel and phoney. That nasty ugly religious business that held me captive for years making me feel like I was not good enough.

Check out my podcast interview with Dharmic Evolution #65

I remember I was in a club one day, on my birthday – in soho, and God filled my heart and temple with much warmness and he spoke these unmistakable recognizable words to me. He’s voice is impeccably, distinctive; when he speaks, because everything consumes like surround sound and renders you, thoughtfully, still.

He said – ‘People like you don’t belong here’. He rehashed it over and over. He was fatherly, graceful, compassionate and kind in every way he spoke. I felt like He was standing there next to me – within. Shortly after. I sliced my hand on the railing I held on to and bled profusely.

Do you know every time I went back to that club, over the years – they gave me hell. They frustrated me. In fact. I was harassed, so bad, by plants; it was not a joke.

One day – a Caucasian girl came over to talk with me casually, like a friend at first, cowardly, then said – ‘Go Home’. All within less than a minute, after approaching me excitedly, where she started ignoring me; playing cruel games back and forth. I just feel like sharing.

Are you looking for a friend. He’s the one you’ve been waiting for ..’ Jesus!

MercyfulGrace Diaries with ‘Anthony Everest’ – God’s Time Is The Best by Aremuorin

@Anthony Everest

What God has blessed can not be unblessed …’ – Anthony Everest

I see you in every frame..’ When people see me, I don’t think, they really see me. When people hear me, I don’t think, they really hear me. I’m stirred, and when its time for me to speak, love – I have nothing else to do, but to speak love – into  lives. Every time the devil (enemy) comes for me – God has a master plan.

Anthony Everest - MercyfulGrace.com

Why are you even bothered with how I live my existence? Why don’t you concentrate on your existence – and, own life. Some times, I can not but just laugh at some of the snakes; crawling under pews, telling me- I’m nobody. I laugh in my head, and my spirit says – ‪#‎Watiforit‬ ‪#‎IGotYou‬ ‪#‎MercyfulGrace‬

But when your friends become foes, stand your ground – don’t be alarmed. God is with you always, because God will take glory in it. He has caused a stir, to stir you on your destiny (your way). Sometimes, I can not but cry, why he loves me so and not given up, on me.

MercyfulGrace.com #MercyfulGrace

I don’t care if you are straight or gay, rich or poor, a lawyer or a laborer. I care in your ability to recognise; and love your neighbor as your self. If that’s too much to ask, then we’ll have a problem. ‘As much as the bible has given many; hope, its vilified, oppressed, suppressed and destroyed many lives ..’ – ‪#‎MercyfulGrace‬

Yes – the enemy has come to raise a standard – but Love has come to lift a much, more, higher standard – unprecedented – than the ones, before. The bible is not the complete revelation of God. Love is the standard. Love Is the revelation. God is the Love*. And there is nothing above Love* ..’

@Anthony Everest - MercyfulGrace.com

When Jesus ascended back into the heavens, he said – I will send you the Holy Spirit, the comforter – ‘Not The Bible’. God is new every morning and great is his faithfulness. Jesus never came-to abolish, the-laws, but to-fulfill them. He did, and it’s finished, and the rest is History. Now we have hope – because we have faith – unlike, before. And, because of faith – there is, hope – for all ..’

Sometimes, I can not but cry, why, he loves me so, and  as to why he has not given up, on me.

but then my spirit says ..’

#WaitForIt #IGot#You #MercyfulGrace.

‪#‎Please‬ ‪#‎DontWasteYourTime‬ #On #All #Your ‪#‎Haters‬‪ #‎Love‬

MercyfulGrace Diaries with ‘Open Mics’ – Last Night by Aremuorin

Carol asked me – ‘How did last nite go? was it fun?’

MercyfulGrace Blog

Nope. Drab – Never got on and my Yanky friends where not impressed  as it was their last night. They left, initially, un beknown, to me, but l lured them back – excitedly, in high spirits. Seriously – poor organisation, was an operative word. If I reviewed this on my blog – it will be unforgivable. Now that I have decided to mention, it – I’ve withheld a particular name and venue on this occasion, as this is not just an isolated case. Happens here and there.

Sometimes its great – but occasionally you get dross; like this. Worst – was favouritism. It’s shambles. Why have a singers – name list when you won’t follow it. People turn up an hour before the show – to sign up, and you ignore – them and call your friends on, when they casually walk in. It is disrespectful.

Not only did those people spend their resources there; spending their valuable time and money, before their friends arrived, they also are important, too – and could choose to spend their time and money elsewhere. Also, singers charged an entrance fee is dire. Pure slavery. So, artistes are effectively – paying to play. Now, this is just wrong on all levels. Charge the punters, but don’t charge the artistes – bringing the free entertainment to you.

Also, some of the musicians where just blagging – on some songs, as they did not know the progressions – which left the energy and night flat in most parts  …’ It was nail biting and cringing at times.

Dull over singing and over playing, and over all an unimpressive atmosphere. I wish I did not bring my friends there. They did not like it one – bit. I felt uncomfortable – myself.

When amateurs run around like pros – the result you get is mediocre. And swearing on the mic repeatedly, is unnecessary; it’s really unprofessional and self sabotage – when trying to get people to have a good night, or stay.

They need this feed back to fix up.
