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.

MercyfulGrace Diaries with ‘By Faith’ – Love by Aremuorin

“The world cannot hate you, but it hates me because I testify that its works are evil – John 7:7″.

MercyfulGrace Blog

“Who are you trying to please anyway ..’ Is it Me? Is it you? Is it God? ..” – Michelle Williams

By faith :: I’m keeping my nature and xter – Let nobody change me for the world or nobody. I was made that way for a purpose ..’ we are all individually unique – so leave it (me) alone ..’

By faith :: Here’s a revelation for haters :: Matthew 18 : 6 – 7

6 “Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were drowned in the depth of the sea. 7 Woe to the world because of offences! For offences must come, but woe to that man by whom the offence comes

By Faith :: I worked this one out. Selling my self short – to please haters, is like denying Christ or the power of Christ in me.

So, get ready – its not going down like that ..’ I am going to live to testify to it ..’ That I believe in Jesus and that’s my choice.

I’m going to take him with me everywhere I go like a badge of honour.

You know, like your favourite celebrity, or football jersey. Yea – like that ..’ Ditto. I have no care for religion ..’

Don’t get it twisted now ..’ God is Love ..’ It’s not my business to judge others and their choices. If it’s not about loving – get to stepping and keep it moving. Jealousy is deep! Jealousy is the root of hatred! How people flip, over this; overnight, isn;t surprise to me any more. I follow only God!

Many people go to church everyday, yet they have no revelation, on it – what they profess or are professing. Oh, I forgot – they apply it to – discrimination, bigotry & hate ..’ Nice.

How are you going to show people, what love is, when you ain’t got none. &- you wonder why people won’t come to church with you – or believe a word you say? Go figure ..’

Think out loud. Love out loud. What ever you do :: which ever way you do :: Get Out Of The Box !!! – Anthony Everest

It took me a while to grasp this ..’ If people want to be fake. Let them be. You don’t have to be – to win them over  ..’ Search for beautiful things on the inside! Those are the things that are real, that stand; the test of time.

I apologise if I misunderstood.

MercyfulGrace Blog Diaries with ‘Sabotage’ – Mercy by Aremuorin

God Is Love2 - MercyfulGrace.com

So haven’t the time – life is way too short for clowns ..’ Lord No!

I’m afraid, for what’s about to happen in the heavens above. For a miracle is imminent, slowly but sure. It’s a testimony of promise, covenant of word – that revelation of bond. It’ll rock the corners of the nations! Don’t forget me. Don’t pass me by. Mercy! Mercyfulgrace

Have learned to surround myself with real people. Real people, who want the best for humanity ..’ Not two faced lying backstabbing clowns; for a few, quick buck, or two ..’ Life is too short to be revolved, around the (their) past. When I say, religious people, are the worst, at this crime – it’s an understatement ..’ Mercyfulgrace
Anthony Everest - theMercyfulGrace.com
Many will front, like gangsters, but seriously, broken; like children, inside. It’s not a criticism, its an observation. Love makes us all whole. God – only perfects us – all, through his loving graces ..’ I don’t have to tell God, I love him. He knows that, already. He knows my heart, and my worth. So, why would I lower myself, to negative people? Step! Mercyfulgrace

Some people just want the world – and its entirely. The sad truth – is that – this world is nothing – compared to what’s beyond the sky. I’ve had a glimpse, of it, and, the world below, from there. You would only wonder why, you wasted all your labour, solely, for this, one day. If you get my drift – if you get there ..’ This world is nothing comparatively.. It’s a passing fancy :: Mercyfulgrace ::

Now, I can’t wait to uproot the remaining dross that do nothing but occupy space. More Deletions this week – lookout – you may suddenly, not be found on my friends list. Nuf Said !!! You may fool those around you, but you don’t fool me – cuz, I have the Power that Rose Christ From The Dead – living inside of me ..’ Beat That! Good Luck* :: Okay Dot Com :: #‎Sabotage‬ — with Mercyfulgrace.

So, haven’t the time – life way too short for clowns ..’ Lord No! You know what – sometimes – the plants, that spin malicious, lies, for others – the people they deliver this ‘no – sense’ to, :: leave me shocked, as to where, they, left their brains, to process the truth form the lies. I mean – are you that, ignorant, blind, dumb and gullible? Just because – A says B – is C, to everyone – does not make it true ..’ Seriously. Come on now ..’ Okay dot Com ..’
There was a time in my life, I thought I needed every, Tom, Dick and Harry – in it. But now, I’m not sure – every Tom, Dick And Harry is welcome, any longer, if they are disloyal, untrustworthy, and pathologically, parasitic; by nature.

MercyfulGrace Diaries with ‘Thank You Lord’ – For One More Day – by Àrèmúorin

Thank you Lord for one more day’ – Lurin Cato.

Amen – Can I share ? I will anyway. The love of Jesus is the reason why.

Hand Of Mercy

I was having a real bad day yesterday, and I saw a downward spiral depression knocking on my door. I woke up – everything turned from bad to worse. First, it was bad news, one letter opened after another. I cancelled my much looked forward to lunch meeting with a dear colleague /friend we had planned, somewhere, fancy, few weeks before.

The enemy knew how to do it. As I was travailing and wrestling with these negative thoughts, surprisingly – the friend, my colleague called me and asked If I was still coming, that he was waiting for me at the venue. I explained my situation. He was sympathetic; not mad and we talked for almost half an hour. I realised how I’d allowed the storm to try and move me off course for a greater plan – known coming.
Life Quotes - Death, Aremuorin.com
As that phased, there was more drama that came – as my moods kept depleting, headaches and the saga. This one is usually spiritual – beyond me. One thing, I’ve learned, when I get this way, is, withdraw, and go to bed. It may take a day or two more. But I just couldn’t sleep peacefully, despite. Kept trying to do everything I knew. I even texted some friends – that I needed someone to talk to.  I got zero responses. Wish I’d remembered to text Lurin.
Congo - MercyfulGrace.om
 
Anyway, I kept trying to rest my fragile brain, before, I started reacting, even more badly, to all the symptoms surfacing, with every fibre in me. It was a struggle. I quickly disposed of those ugly letters from view and shifted my focus.
 
Now in my following dream, whilst asleep, I had company – they were strange-like company – not easy to describe, but I remember, it felt like I was awake. I almost thought I’d missed a day. I did everything one would do, normally, in the day – activity wise, in this dream. It was like a one to one.
MercyfulGrace.com
 
The most memorable part was someone, singing to me a bunch of songs. The most memorable, the hook of my self-penned, song, emptiness, that I wrote, 7/8 years ago – playfully, just repeating that hook back and forth, with me ..’ It felt so real. Whilst this was going on, I was still in physical psychological pain, battling with my mood and state. 
 
Now what happened after is what I can’t forget. In the dream I was still, trying to find a friend to text or call, to speak with – then the company, with me, just said to me – ‘Why not tell it to Jesus’. I am not even lieing. This is the God honest truth. Right from within the dream – I started doing this. By the time I woke up – I was refreshed and fine. Began, to wonder why I was waking up – because everything felt so real, like I was already awake. I’m sharing this because – I read a Facebook post saying – ‘Thank you Lord for one more day’ by Lurin Cato. The principalities and powers of this world, know what I know, and that’s why they won’t stop.
Live From Amsterdam - Run To Love - Tour2 --
I instantly knew what this meant, because the last time I had this encounter was when I  received bad news in the post a few years ago. So bad that it overwhelmed me, that I was lying on my back in my bed, vowing in my heart and head, I just want to die now, sleep, and never wake up – again. It was almost exactly, the last time, I had the same company with me who I saw, in my dream. Such a strange state to be in. I guess God knows when I’ve reached my limit.
Aremuorin - Anthony Everest - Never Around Tour - Amsterdam
The difference is only this. The last time, I was wide awake. So, clearly, it was a vision, not a dream. On that occasion, one knelt beside me, looking in my eyes, intently, resting a hand on my belly. Then I felt something indescribable, like a current of energy flow through me ..’ What happened after – is a secret I’m not sharing, until a time comes. 

 
I’ve a reached a point in my life, where I don’t care anymore on opinions of others, when I have these moments ..’ I speak what I know. Share what I’ve received. It’s up to you to process it and make do with. If you need, clarification, advise, direction, tweet, Facebook, or inbox me. God Is Love*. There is a reason why I read Lurin’s post and my testimony is validation. I never claim to be perfect. I’m in working progress like every other human being on earth; yet, I know so much more than your average believer and unbeliever.
Jesus Loves you - MercyfulGrace.com
 
As a child I have seen, heard and touched, met, been to, shown, know things, taken places, beyond human eyes, within our human realm, that, when I begin to share, some – people freeze over.  Some with doubt, some with curiosity. Some try to give weird explanations, that make me laugh inside out; but I know what it is. The principalities and powers of this world, know what I know, and that’s why they won’t stop.
For the record, I don’t drink nor do drugs, nor do I judge those who do have, such, or similar vices. Life is a journey. Everyone is questing. Everyone is arriving. Thou, time is the worst enemy!
 Loaded - Aremuorin.com
 
I ask God sometimes why do I know so much. Why me ..’  I’ve had famous successful people, ask me the same question – ‘Why do you know so much?’. Blessed Burden! Sometimes, I wish I didn’t.
 
With hindsight my family are like that. Some of them are filled with amazing spiritual gifts, both on my father and mothers side – from deacons to reverends. Even as a child, I would dream dreams and tell my uncles and aunties, which they didn’t believe, until they came to pass. Don’t get it twisted. There are ugly people there, too; who need this message, more than anything. Remember the Story of Joseph, in the Bible. It’s so very comforting. Even, I do. Don’t know about you?
sa xenophobia - mercyfulgrace.com
 
This is even more so ironic. Just today; I was saying to myself, when I woke up, ‘make the most of every second; because, tomorrow may never come’. When God wants to get our attention to propel us, he knows how to do it in his own unique, unprecedented, innumerable super-natural way. Nor will he share his glory with anyone. When God speaks to me, from experience, it’s been the most compelling, surreal, unmissable, profound experience. Thank you Jesus.
 
Jesus, is the Son of God. That much I know. I’ve seen him with my very own two eyes, sitting; on the right hand side of his Father. Demons took me before the throne once, and he; defended me. Mercy!  So, when I say ‘I thank God For Another Day’, I’m humbly bowed, to the fact that, thou I’m not worthy, yet, I’m eternally grateful, and thankful for one more day. Amen.

  • Humanity is a reflection of love and that is what God is. Love*. The Kingdom of God is Love* – over and over again. This hustle will be left behind. We leave as we came. With nothing ..’ Better be prayerful that the ones you leave your hustle for, do the right thing when your time is through because the bible say’s –

Mathew 19:24: “Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.”

Lurin Cato On Finding The One ..’ – #In14Ways #LurinCato #MercyfulGrace

We caught up with Lurin Cato – The Multiple Gospel Award Winner- and this is what she shared with us on Relations for Christian Women :: Some Good Stuff to think about – Enjoy ..’
image
This isn’t for every lady out there but for some. For the unmarried that is. I know we can be fussy, and I believe we’re more fussy now then ever before.
Not entirely all our fault. Some guys need to step up (not all, some ). Some of us women, before we were saved, we were at the clubs raving away and hoped we saw the one that looked KRISSSSSS to come through those doors and approach us.
image
Or when we saw them we’d tell our friends – ‘that one is mine’. Most times, he would look like the man on the left hand side, of the picture.
Ladies, now that your saved ‘some of you’ are looking for the Christian version of that guy And waiting for that moment of Boom!! There u go! there he is! A tall, strapping lad, looks like he works out with a bible in his hand. Ladies no one said you can’t have a Preference BUT! Try and speak to the men who aren’t like that.
Anthony Everest - MercyfulGrace.com
You’ll be amazed how some are interesting, intriguing, inspiring, beautiful characters and have something about that them that makes you want to talk to them more. Remember God made men with a void that’s why we are his help mate.
So not all men will have everything together. Now, before it’s all said and done, it’s good to find out his back ground, build a friendship etc and pray on it too. Well that’s all I wanted to say. Blessings, hope I’ve given you something to think about.

Lurin Cato is a Multiple Gospel Award Winner – performing next at the Jazz Cafe on the :: 4th of August 2014 
MercyfulGrace final thoughts ..’ 
Personally, I speak to, and love; who ever my spirit is drawn to ..’ There is always a reason for a connection. You need to process what you are feeling. What defiles a man is what comes out of him ..’

“What goes into someone’s mouth does not defile them, but what comes out of their mouth, that is what defiles them.” Mathew 15: 11

Gone are the days I used wait around for approval ..’ It’s an utter waste of time. Why wait for it, when they can give it you today and take it tomorrow. I rather run to Jesus !!!
