An orphanage named by God!

Jeranjie at the orphanage

Jeranjie Kamfose is a humble, caring and exemplary woman of God whom we are proud to say, is a valued member of our small but greatly blessed outreach team. She has been studying in Dublin for the last two years and from the first time we met Jeranjie more than a year ago, we could see the presence of Jesus Christ in her. At that time Paul had prophesied that God has a really tremendous future for her at home in Malawi, Africa even though she had just migrated to Ireland. She would have a chain of orphanages providing help to thousands of children, by the Grace of God be a hugely successful evangelist and would be a catalyst for good, making a difference not just in her home country but right across the continent of Africa.

Jeranjie

Remember Jeranjie’s name because in years to come, you will hear a lot more about this dedicated young woman and her anointed work in reaching the sick, the hungry, the lost, those in need. This is the story of the beginning of God’s plan for her and for Africa.

“I have a passion for helping people, especially the less privileged. Despite their trials, I find them happy and genuine. Anything to do with changing the community for the better and helping the needy are things that I actually love doing”,

It was this passion for helping others, especially children that led to an orphanage in Africa being named the Jeranjie Kamfose Orphanage. The story how this came about is fascinating.

“One of the pastors from Lilongwe knew my name and the local pastor who later named the orphanage, revealed to the first pastor that He had had a Word of Knowledge from God. He had had a dream about someone in Dublin, Ireland. I was the only person the first pastor knew who was living in Dublin. So the prophetically-named orphanage was named on the basis of a dream of the local pastor about someone living in Dublin, Ireland. As I was the only person that anyone knew living in Dublin, I was asked if my name could be used. Of course I agreed. I was honoured”.

Jeranjie's orphansThe orphanage had existed for a few years but the name of the orphanage was only assigned by the pastor recently. Jeranjie visited in 2013. The orphanage in Ntcheu is named after Jeranjie while a second orphanage that Jeranjie supports also in Mzuzu is called Kabu.

The Ntcheu orphanage in the central region of Malawi has eighty-five children, the one in Mzuzu- in the far North of Malawi, has almost thirty. The children, between 0-16 years get their basic childcare needs met and go to local primary schools. She is also now associated with three other orphanages. There is the Taonga club which is in Mzimba district and has 48 children, another one is the Tafika club in Nkhatabay district which has 60 children and the last one is Kongwe Hills youth organisation which is in Dowa district and has about 180 children and youth.

“I send letters of encouragement to the orphanages to let the kids know that they are not alone and they pray for me all the time. Most of their parents are deceased. Some of them would have been living with their grandparents who because of their old age, can’t take care of them properly. The orphanages are there to provide meals for them and to ensure that they are involved in some of the village activities, to encourage them to attend church and to give them something to look forward to beyond going out looking for food. The orphanage acts as a safe meeting place for the kids. They organise sports events and play-time around the orphanage.

JKs orphans We are trying to start farming to grow maize, rice and vegetables and pig-raising so that they can do this and sell the crops. They’ll then be able to earn their own money rather than subsiding on hand-outs. One of the plans is to build accommodation for the orphans with a kitchen and dining hall and to employ a full-time officer who can oversee the children and cook the meals”.

Jeranjie’s family has a background in such local services as her mother was a district health officer during her career in nursing.

Jeranjie’s story was first published recently in Yeah! the leading international student’s magazine, where she is a contributor in Ireland and is also African correspondent for Yeah! Africa. She is currently driving a series of projects in association with Africa Irish Development Initiative Ltd (AIDI) who also coordinate Black & African History Month Ireland.

The Five Fold Ministry Ireland do not seek donations, charge fees, admission charges or make collections etc but we do wholeheartedly encourage all who would like to financially support Jeranjie’s endeavours which not only improve the quality of life for African children, in some cases may even mean the difference between life and death. We totally support and recommend Jeranjie and all her Christian work.

By coincidence (God-incidence?) Jeranjie must return to live in Africa in October. Busy and all as she is we know the best by far is yet to come. Before she returns, we hope to make a special announcement regarding another exciting project that as well as providing physical needs, this time  will make an eternal difference in Ireland and Africa. More soon… meantime you’ll find Jeranjie on Facebook

JUDAS was chosen by Jesus

In Apostles, Christianity, Evangelists, Jesus Christ, mega-churches, megachurches, Pastors, Prophets, REVIVAL, teachers on February 19, 2015 at 8:48 pm
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him, should not perish but have everlasting life.

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him, should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

Judas walked with, and was even chosen by Jesus, the greatest teacher and healer of all time and the omniscient Son of God. Judas personally witnessed Jesus heal the sick. The blind saw. The lame walked. The deaf heard. Jesus walked on water and even raised the dead back to life.

After seeing with his own eyes, the phenomenal miracles worked by Jesus, why did Judas betray the greatest man who ever lived? The answer is simple – greed – money. The same scourge which we can see all over the world today.

Jesus was betrayed with a kiss from Judas, the kiss of death. If we asked today, “Does this world want Jesus?”, the answer is No. No because they see in their own selfish hearts the unwillingness to give anything to anyone unless they have a promise that they will get more back. Never mind Christ going to Calvary to give everything for us, to die for the sins of the world.

The world cannot understand Christ’s agonising sacrifice because the world is dark with its all-consuming avarice and specifically, greed for money. To freely give something precious away, solely for the good of others, is far from their hearts. If Jesus thought the same way, the world would end up in hell.

We Christians are supposed to be the Light of this world. I myself do not see this. They have become similar to the world and extremely difficult to tell the difference between them and unbelievers. They have forgotten about preaching Christ and Him crucified on Calvary. Instead the main preaching in many churches today, is compromise and the tickling of ears with the prosperity gospel. This I do not have anything against except when it is continuously, aggressively advanced whilst Calvary is not mentioned at all.

Make no mistake. God WILL hold you accountable when you meet Him face-to-face. What is He going to say to YOU? “Well done good and faithful servant” or “Go away from Me. I do not know you”. You choose. Life… or death?

Paul
Servant of the Lord.

What does GOD want in the Christian Church today?

In Apostles, Christianity, Evangelists, Jesus Christ, Pastors, Prophets on November 24, 2014 at 1:52 pm

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him, should not perish but have everlasting life.

God has NO interest in how big your church is. None in how popular you are. Nor in how many speaking engagements you have or conferences that you attend. Even if you are a famous TV evangelist, God still has NO interest in any of these things.

Not unless you are doing the work i.e. His work and not your own. He is only interested in how many lost souls you are reaching for Him with the real gospel of Jesus Christ and Him crucified.

YOU are not the one that went to Calvary. You are not the one whose back was beaten with whips until there was no skin to be seen. You were not nailed to a rugged cross, not had a crown of thorns pushed into your head. Only He was the one who was beaten, whipped and humiliated by the very ones whom He had created. He was the one who bought us our salvation with His own flowing, redemptive Blood.

So it is only fitting for each and every Christian in the world to testify of the true gospel. The gospel of Christ and Him being crucified to save the world from going to hell. This is the only gospel worth preaching about. To talk does not save souls. To sing nice songs does not save souls. To have conferences with lots of Christians listening to YOUR every word about prosperity gospels… still does not save souls.

The reason I write this, is because I believe strongly that we have a world that is now almost in total darkness, where the light is growing dimmer, particularly when it comes to preaching Christ and Him crucified. Today in the Christian church, we believe there is a lack of commitment to what God Has done by sending His Son to die a horrific death at Calvary. Not only do we believe there is a lack of commitment, we have experienced it.

Let me ask you this question. Would you send your son to do the same? I don’t believe you would. God however is loving, everlastingly faithful and out of His own great mercy chose to send His Son, Jesus Christ to save us all from hell. He was not the one who needed saving.

This is why I write this letter with repeated emphasis, that the church might awaken from it’s cosy slumber and come alive to the truth. That the ubiquitous begging for money that does not come, might stop. If God wants you to have large outreaches He will provide. He’s not short of money. He will give it to you. There is no need to continuously send out grasping letters. He didn’t do it.

At no time did Jesus say, “Go ye therefore and build me mega-size church buildings so that you can fill them with people”. I am not against this, if there are lost people being saved in the church every week. But He didn’t do it. So why are we?

When you do appear before God, and you will appear before Him face to face, that’s a guarantee, will He say to you, “Well done good and faithful servant” or will He say, “Go away from Me. I do not know you?”

If you are thinking of judging us on what we do, after more than 100 God-ordained outreaches, be very sure that your fruit exceeds ours.

Your servant,
Paul
Evangelist.

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son,
that whosoever believes in Him, should not perish but have everlasting life.

Does God Love ME?

.

He suffered and He died for you,
An agonising death on a rugged cross
Tortured and crucified for you,
To save the sick, the lonely and the lost

Black hearted Pilate washed his hands in a dish of delph
It could have been in blood as much as in water
For he may as well have nailed Jesus to the cross himself
It was he who gave the fatal order

They surrounded Him in the dark of night
Armed guards with torches aglow
The crowds milled expecting a fight
But Jesus said, “It is I you seek, let the others go”.

On His Head a crown of black thorns they did add,
Their tips dipped in a deadly poison
A practice that could drive ordinary men mad,
As the Blood of Christ turned those tips to crimson

The mass of bleeding tissue was revealed
As ruthless Romans scourged again and again
Strips of skin were torn and peeled;
But not even once did Jesus complain

They mocked and insulted
They ripped the cloak from blood congealed
They pierced His Hands and His feet
His back was like a furrowed field,

When they nailed Him to that cross,
They nailed our sickness and our sin
They nailed your pain and your loss
So you would learn the Kingdom of God is within

His friends who loved Him looked up and cried
The sky darkened and clouds gathered as if nightfall
When Jesus looked down at the mob, just before He died
His Heart of Love still forgave them all

He had created the very wood and also the nails
And even the merciless men who drove them through
Despite the leather whip with it’s leaded tails
He pleaded, “Forgive them Father; they know not what they do”.

They took Him from the cross and gave Him to His Mother,
She cradled and she held this Blessed Fruit of her womb
She cried for her baby that once she lay in a manger
But now she prepared to lay her baby in a tomb.

However three days later the impossible happened
And Mary’s pierced heart was healed
She screamed with Joy as the tomb was opened
Jesus had defeated death, to all it was revealed.

He had endured and He had triumphed, this story is true
How He dispelled darkness with the light of love that day
And He would suffer it all over again, even if for only you
So that you too can live again in a most abundant way

Who is this faithful man who now holds out His Hand?
This man who is always honest, always true
Who speaks to pain and misery and it’s forever banned,
He is the one who will never leave or forsake you

You may not know Him yet but He knew you before you were born,
He knows everything about you, your strength and your frailties
He loved you in the womb, before you were even formed
And He will love you forever, and through all eternities

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
John 3:16

Road to Calvary 9: Satan tempts Jesus

In Apostles, Christianity, Evangelists, Jesus Christ, Lifestyle, Pastors, Prophets, REVIVAL, teachers, Uncategorized on March 20, 2014 at 2:08 pm

Immediately after Jesus was baptized, the Holy Spirit led him out into the desert, where he fasted for forty days and forty nights. During that time he was tempted by Satan.

Satan said, “If you are the Son of God, turn these rocks into bread so you can eat!
Jesus replied, “It is written in God’s Word, ‘Man does not live only on bread, but on every word that God speaks!

Jesus on top of the temple.

Then Satan took Jesus to the highest point on the Temple and said, “If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down, for it is written, ‘He will command His angels to catch you so your foot does not hit the ground. But Jesus replied, “It is also written in God’s Word, ‘Do not test God.”

Then Satan showed Jesus all the kingdoms of the world and all their glory and said, “I will give you all this if you bow down and worship me.
Jesus replied, “Get away from me, Satan! It is written in God’s Word, ‘Worship only the Lord your God.”

satan defeated

Satan leaves in defeat.

Then Satan left him to wait for a better time. Angels came and took care of Jesus.

Satan was so foolish to offer Jesus, something that He already owned. Rather than sending him to Hell where he belonged, Jesus simply defeated Satan by quoting the Word of God.

Road to Calvary 8: John baptises Jesus

In Apostles, Christianity, Evangelists, Jesus Christ, Lifestyle, Pastors, Prophets, REVIVAL, teachers on March 18, 2014 at 8:49 pm

When John grew up, he became a prophet. He lived in the wilderness, ate wild honey and locusts, and wore clothes made from camel-hair.

John the Baptist preaches

John proclaims the first coming of the Messiah

Many people came to listen to John. He preached to them, saying, “Repent, for the Kingdom of God is near. Some people repented and were baptized when they heard John’s message, but there were many religious leaders who came to be baptized without repenting and confessing their sins.

John rebukes the hypocritical church leaders

John rebukes the religious leaders

John said to the religious leaders, “You bunch of snakes! Repent and change your behavior. Every tree that does not bear good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire.” This fulfilled what the prophet Isaiah said, “Behold, I send my messenger ahead of you, who will prepare your way.”
(Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. ) Matt. 7:20(KJV)

Some Jews asked John if he was the Messiah. John replied, “I am not the Messiah, but there is someone coming after me who is much greater than I am. I am not even worthy to untie his sandals. 

John meets Jesus

John points out and proclaims Jesus

The next day, Jesus came to be baptized by John. When John saw him, he said, “Look! There is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!”

John said to Jesus, “I am not worthy to baptize you. You should baptize me instead.” But Jesus said, “You should baptize me, because it is the right thing to do.” So John baptized him, but not because Jesus had sinned—he never sinned.

Jesus and the Dove

Holy Spirit settles on Jesus

When Jesus came out of the water, the Spirit of God took the appearance of a dove and landed on him. At the same time a voice from heaven said, “You are My beloved Son, and with you I am well pleased.”

Later when Jesus went into Caesarea, Philipippi He asked His disciples, “Who do men say I am?” They replied, some say John the Baptist, some say a prophet. This was we believe, plain silly. Although John was a great man He was no comparison to Jesus. He never worked a miracle in his life, never healed anyone. His job was to proclaim the first coming of the Messiah, Jesus Christ. Above, God the Father didn’t mention John, only His Son.

John bears witness to the Son of God

John bears witness to the Son of God

God had told John, “The Holy Spirit will land on someone you baptise. He is the Son of God.” There is only one God. But God is three persons, the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

God had stated who Jesus was. John saw and bore record that this was the Son of God. Then, in our opinion, this is where John erred. He pointed to Jesus, others began to follow Jesus. Yet why did he not? What was wrong with him? He continued in dead works. And this is what many churches do, continue in works that produce No fruit. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Matt. 7:20(KJV)

In John’s case, this is why the enemy was able to move so quickly. After many years preaching without hindrance, now he was promptly arrested and beheaded. He was continuing in a work that was already finished.
