A MATHS QUESTION MY PASTOR ASKED ME

And just yesterday my Pastor Jonathan Onyekachi saw one of my "I love Mathematics" slogan and hilariously  gave me an unexpected question which he wanted me to solve within 24 hours. In his own very words the question goes thus:
Question

"Please prove that 1+1=1, this you must solve today."
Do you know what happened next? I got excited and smiled broadly to my self as I thought about what the Scriptures said about marriage. I guess your mind went there too.
Now, I picked up my KJV Study Bible to prove Mathematically that 1+1=1. And in few minutes of glancing through my Bible with my Mathematic mind, I came up with this answer in response to my Pastor:
Answer

Thank you very much for your question, Sir. I will prove it by referencing an authority much higher than mine in Mathematics.
According to Jesus Christ of Nazareth who in the oldest book with the latest news and most accurate historically scientific records, called the Holy Bible, He said in the Gospel according to Mark 10: 6 - 9

"6. But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.

7. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife;

8. And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh.

9. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder."

From the above quote we can deduce that:

Male + Female = One_Flesh

Note:     Male = 1

              Female = 1

              One_Flesh = 1  

Therefore,  1+1=1.

#QED

                              THE END

SOW, WAIT, REAP!

7 Steps to Call in Your Harvest

August 9, 2017

     

 

In the natural, bringing in a harvest has always been a season of great celebration. The reward for sowing, watering and protecting precious seed symbolizes abundance and fruit from a season of work and sacrifice.

 

When it comes to a spiritual harvest, our expectancy should be the same. Sow, wait, reap. Sounds simple, right? Yet, if you’re like most people, you’ve found yourself at one time or another wondering what happened to your harvest.

 

You’ve sowed, prayed and waited. But nothing comes. In fact, it seems like a harvest is long overdue. Or, maybe the devil has come like a pesky crow and stolen all your seed. Either way, you’re left wondering, Could there be something more to this process? The simple answer is yes.

 

Are you due for a harvest?

 

Well, get ready for the windows of heaven to open, because the Lord of the harvest has a plan for you to receive the bounty of His greatest blessings. If you’re ready to see a visible return in your life, here are seven simple steps to help you call in your harvest.

 

1. Sow Seed for Your Harvest

“Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will

also reap.”—Galatians 6:7, NKJV

 

If you are desiring a harvest in your life, one thing is sure—you can’t reap if you don’t sow. The devil has tricked so many Christians into believing they can’t afford to sow financially or otherwise. He’ll work overtime trying to keep you in fear about giving away your resources. Why? Because he knows how much you stand to gain in both the natural and the spiritual realms.

 

Jesus said in Luke 6:38 that if you give “you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full—pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back”!

 

That’s a powerful truth! That’s why the enemy doesn’t want you participating in sowing. In fact, he’d prefer that you just forget about it altogether. But, that would only be to your own detriment because in Genesis 8:22, it is promised that while the earth remains, seedtime and harvest will not cease.

 

What is seed? Seed is anything you give. It can be time, money, resources, faith, hope or love.

 

The most important part of sowing is the heart behind the gift. So, when you sow, be sure you are acting as a good sower. Second Corinthians 9:6 says, “[Remember] this: he who sows sparingly and grudgingly will also reap sparingly and grudgingly, and he who sows generously [that blessings may come to someone] will also reap generously and with blessings” (AMPC).

 

When you give in sorrow, there is no faith, so there is no return. So, sow your seed in joy and you will reap a harvest!

 

2. Get Aggressive About Reaping Your Harvest

“And from the days of John the Baptist until the present time, the kingdom of heaven

has endured violent assault, and violent men seize it by force [as a precious prize—a share

in the heavenly kingdom is sought with most ardent zeal and intense exertion].”—Matthew 11:12, AMPC

 

A common misconception about the principles of sowing and reaping is that we sow the seed, then wait for God to do the reaping for us.  When we do this, we miss a very important part we are to play! We sow the seed, God gives the increase, but we are to reap (or gather) the harvest.

 

In other words, you must become a sower and a mower.

 

To do so, you must become aggressive. If you leave your harvest in the fields, it will rot! Purpose in your mind today to become aggressive about harvesting. Leave nothing on the table for the enemy to steal—it belongs to you! Every seed you’ve ever planted is available if you haven’t reaped it yet.

 

Speak this aloud: “I am not just a good giver. I am a good reaper.”

 

3. Don’t Give Up on Your Seed

“So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.”—Galatians 6:9

 

Jerry Savelle says, “Your harvest is determined by what you do while you’re waiting for it.”

 

Waiting is the toughest part of the sowing process, isn’t it? You sow your seed…then…silence. How can you be sure your harvest will come? A lot is dependent upon how you wait.

 

If you sow your seed in faith, you will expect it to grow, and you’ll keep expecting— no matter how long it takes. In the meantime, it is important that your words match your faith. Try this: Say, “I am expecting a record-breaking harvest.”

 

Once you have your words in line, refuse to surrender for any reason. If you give up at any point in the process, you will jeopardize your harvest. Allowing yourself to become weary or give up will forfeit what you’ve waited so long to receive.

 

Instead, hold tightly to what God has said about the return on your seed. Remember, harvest only comes in the right season.  As long as you stay the course, you are guaranteed to reap from what you have sown.

 

Maybe you’re waiting for a financial harvest, a breakthrough in a relationship, or healing and restoration in your body or emotions. Whatever it is, if your harvest is taking longer than you’ve anticipated, God’s Word and His promises are true. So, hold on!

 

God remembers every seed you’ve ever sown. So, don’t give up on your seed just before the finish line. Harvest is coming!

 

4. Keep the Weeds Out of Your Harvest

“And the Lord God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to

keep it.”—Genesis 2:15, KJV

 

The word translated keep in Hebrew means “to put a hedge of thorns around, to watch over; to guard, protect and safeguard.” When a farmer plants seed in a garden, he doesn’t just walk away and hope for the best. No! He has much to do to protect his crop.

 

And so do you.

 

What can choke your crop? Walking outside of love. This includes unforgiveness, bitterness and strife. So, keep a watch on your heart, pull the “weeds” out by the roots when they crop up, spray them with the Word, and cast them out with the help of the Holy Spirit.

5. Water the Seed of Your Harvest

“Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee. Then shall the earth yield

her increase; and God, even our own God, shall bless us.”—Psalm 67:5-6, KJV

 

A farmer would never think of planting a field full of seeds and then neglect to water it. It would be a death sentence for his crop!

 

The same is true of seed we sow. It needs to be watered. But with what? Praise and thanksgiving—the language of faith. Throughout the Bible, we see praise and thanksgiving associated with a resulting harvest.

 

Praise God and thank Him in advance for your harvest. Thank Him that the hundredfold return is working all the time.

 

6. Put In the Sickle for Your Harvest

“But when the grain is ripe and permits, immediately he sends forth [the reapers] and puts in the sickle, because the harvest stands ready.”—Mark 4:29, AMPC

 

Mark 4:29 demonstrates our role in reaping the harvest. To gather and collect our bountiful harvest, we must put in the sickle.

 

What is a sickle? It is a sharp instrument used for cutting crops during a harvest. Our sickle is the Word of God coming out of our mouths.  Hebrews 4:12 says, “For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow….”

 

We reap our harvest the same way we acquire anything else—by faith. Our words of faith cut down the crops and bring in the harvest. In fact, words are an important part of the entire process of sowing and reaping. What you say is what you sow. And the words you speak today will dictate tomorrow’s harvest. So, be sure your words are calling in your harvest with faith. They are a powerful harvesting tool!

 

7. Command Your Harvest to Come

 

“Behold, the hire [or the harvest] of the labourers who have reaped down your

fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped [the harvest] are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth.”—James 5:4, KJV

 

When your harvest is ready, it will cry out for its rightful owner. How do you command it to come in?

 

Cry out to the Lord for your harvest.

 

Now, to cry does not mean to whine or act pitiful. It is a cry of faith. It means to proclaim, and demand immediate action with aggressive force and passion. It means you cry out and say, “Satan, in the Name of Jesus, release my harvest!” and “Angels, go gather it up NOW!”

 

Practice these seven steps to call in your harvest! If you’ve been sowing seed, it’s time for you to see a harvest. Release your faith and get excited about your harvest!

5 MUST-DO STEPS TO FULFILLING GOD'S PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE

It’s simple: We don’t chase after things we have no desire to obtain. Therefore, our pursuit of anything is ample proof of valid desire. But desire alone doesn’t bring success. We must have a clearly defined strategy.

Defining a successful strategy is one of the most challenging exercises a man faces. Even Jesus warned of this process in Luke 14:28-30 (NIV):

“Suppose one of you wants to build a tower. Won’t you first sit down and estimate the cost to see if you have enough money to complete it? For if you lay the foundation and are not able to finish it, everyone who sees it will ridicule you, saying, ‘This person began to build and wasn’t able to finish.”

God leads us in steps, not by leaps. Most men want to jump into their success, yet a “leap of faith” is not a biblical concept. If we’re going to fulfill our purpose, we must take steps to do it.

Here are five important steps you can take now to fulfill your purpose.

Step 1

You must decide for yourself what is worthy of your pursuit. No one else should decide for you. You may receive counsel from others, but you should make the decision; otherwise you will be unfulfilled in your pursuit. There are countless stories of men who achieved great success yet remained unfulfilled because they were living another person’s dream.

Step 2

Go to your Source to understand your potential. God spoke to the land and said, “Produce!” He spoke to the seas and said, “Teem with creatures!” He spoke to Himself and said, “Let Us create man!” Only God has a complete understanding of why you were created and what your potential is. You may have a hint or a glimpse of this understanding, but you will never know complete fulfillment until you fully know the Source of your potential.

Step 3

Write down on paper or develop a vision board of every dream, goal or desire that is important to you. Write down anything you want to become, do or possess. This is extremely important. I’ve learned that what I have received from God requires me to write it down so I can repeat it often and closely guard the accuracy of the goal He has given me.

Step 4

Narrow your focus to the top three pursuits. After you’ve written down what you want to become, do or possess, develop actions steps you can take now to create momentum toward those things. The big vision will come from a series of small decisions.

Step 5

Be aware that God will network you with others to help you get where you are going. People are God’s hands on this earth. You may find two different types of people will come into your life—one a person you have the ability to help, the other a person who has the ability to help you. Recognizing and discerning these people is vital.

You will never achieve your purpose in life unless you become strategically motivated to pursue it. Make plans right now to get alone with God, pursue Him and listen for His affirming voice to clearly define your purpose, write it down, develop action steps and get moving.

USING ROBUST ASSESSMENT TOOLS TO ELIMINATE PAPER-GRADING BURDEN AND MEASURE STUDENT SUCCESS


Do you know that colleges and universities are using automated assessment tools to measure student’s performance and strategies to enhance it. 

Standard tests don’t measure student performance

Educators are experiencing almost relentless pressure to show their effectiveness. They are looking for deep insights that gauge performance and inspire effort. Most institutions judge a student success on the basis of student performance on standardized achievement tests. 

The assessment mission

Student assessment is an important academic activity to evaluate student’s performance. Educators are seeking to understand how to use assessment tools not just to measure performance but also determine whether students are competent to handle program of study in an effort to encourage students to pursue knowledge instead of grades.

Accurate assessments improve student achievement

Technology-enabled assessment system for testing, quizzing, polling, and student responses drastically reduces the time taken for assessment and evaluation and eliminates errors, while bringing transparency and reliability to the various assessment processes. Instructors and faculties can evaluate the assessments from anywhere, anytime in a highly secure environment. Eliminate errors, inaccuracy and endless delays in paper-based valuation and student result management becomes very fast and reduces the workload of staff significantly. 

Right strategies, right digital tools for assessments & grading

Assessment tools allow faculty and staff to be efficient and productive. Manage all type of assessment activities at all stages, from course registration and question generation to processing of results and statistical reports on student performance. The examination management system allows you to: create various exam types, configure exam rules, generate exam invoice, manage venue and faculty availability, enter grades, process results and grade sheets.

Analyzing assessments & grading with rubric tools

In order to effectively measure the effectiveness of your online assessments you need to evaluate student’s learning and academic performance. How to do that? Configure the criteria that must be present in the student’s work in any level including assignments, quizzes or tests. Automatic calculation of grades for different assessment types using rubric tools make the task easier and productive for faculty and staff. Eliminate the repetitive and inefficient aspects of grading papers. Using assessment tools, configure and customize grading scales. Automatically generate grade sheets or transcripts which allow students and parents to access from anywhere. 

Promote learning & support great educational leadership

Customized reports with statistics and charts on assessment results showing automatically assigned ranks will help institutions sail through the assessment process. Powerful data-driven insights enable educators to analyze student performance and what they need to improve learning and teaching, and establish norms for great educational leadership.

REAL MONEY

Real money is not the paper money people use. Rather, real money is the value for which that paper money is exchanged. Paper money is just a means of exchanging values with ease, it's not the real money.

The absence of paper money is not what makes a person poor. Real money is actually invisible, it is the value or worth attached to a thing which is determined by its use-ability and rarity.

When God created the world He didn't have paper money as a start-up capital. He created things which can be seen out of things which cannot be seen (His internal value/worth) see Hebrews 11:3.

Since real money is value or worth of a thing or idea, the question now is: How do I build value/worth so as to attract more paper money with which to make exchange for other values I desire?

THE GREATEST VALUE ON EARTH
The greatest value on earth is in human beings; not in the best cars and best airplanes or gold mines of  South Africa. That's why God so loved the world (of human beings, not things) and He gave His son for the world.

When we work on building the value/worth we  possess within, we are are actually creating REAL MONEY.
