Why Actress Mercy Aigbe was arrested!


Popular Nollywood actress, Mercy Aigbe Gentry, had a brawl with men of the Osun State police yesterday. She and her driver were arrested at Olaiya junction in Osogbo, the Osun State capital for allegedly displaying a police cap on her car’s dash board, attracting the police attention. Another report claims it was because her driver was using the phone while driving.

According to multiple reports, when she was stopped, she was ordered to step out of her car so her vehicle could be searched. Her presence reportedly attracted a large crowd who gathered and wanted to know why she was being arrested. A visibly angry Mercy was seen making calls on her phone which was later seized, according to a report by Vanguard

                               

When the crowd became too much, the policemen fired several gunshots in the air and whisked Mercy and her driver away. Her driver was taken away in a police van while another police officer was said to have driven Mercy in her Honda car.

Confirming the incident, an Assistant Police Public Relations Officer, Ajibade Egbedele, said, it was just a minor traffic issue and that the matter has been settled.

OPEN HEAVENS THURSDAY 28TH APRIL 2016 TOPIC : OVERCOMING TRIALS 1


Memorise :

Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him. James 1:12

Read : Proverbs 1:11-15

11 If they say, Come with us, let us lay wait for blood, let us lurk privily for the innocent without cause:

12 Let us swallow them up alive as the grave; and whole, as those that go down into the pit:

13 We shall find all precious substance, we shall fill our houses with spoil:

14 Cast in thy lot among us; let us all have one purse:

15 My son, walk not thou in the way with them; refrain thy foot from their path:

MESSAGE:

The irony of the spiritual realm is that the tempter is the prosecutor. The Bible says:

And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. Revelation 12:9-10

The Above scripture points to one bitter truth; trials and temptations are characteristics of life whether we believe it or not. It is. However, better to believe it because it is then we can preparedly overcome it. The Bible also confirms it by attaching a blessings to overcomers of temptation:

Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him. James 1:12

It takes genuine love of God to be able to overcome temptation. Joseph was able to overcome temptation of sleeping with his masters wife because of the love he had for God. This love was what produced his victory. He said:

There is none greater in this house than I; neither hath he kept back any thing from me but thee, because thou art his wife: how then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God? Genesis 39:9

As said earlier, there will always be temptations as long as we on this earth. Temptation is not a sin but falling into it is a sin. The bad thoughts that the devil flashes at you are not sins until you begin to hatch and execute them. It is our resistance to temptation that makes us overcomers. The Bible says :

Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin. Hebrews 12:4

My prayer for Someone using this devotional is that you remain an overcomer over sin from now on in Jesus name.

PRAYER POINT:

Father, Sanctify me wholly from every besetting sin by the Blood of Jesus she on the cross.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR : 1 Kings 8:22-9:28 and Proverbs 16:20-33. GOOD MORNING.

What a world! Siamese twins born sharing a face in India

 
What a world! This actually happened although, doctors have confirmed that they only lived for six minutes following their birth at Pandit Deendayal Upadhyay Government Medical College four days ago. The mother of the twins had a smooth pregnancy until her first ultrasound at seven months where she was informed about the shocking condition of her babies.
Speaking on the incredibly rare situation, Kirtan Vyas - an assistant professor in the gynecology ward of the hospital who operated on the mother, said medics already knew they were unlikely to survive. According to him, their hospital has been active for 140 years and there’s only been around three to four cases of conjoined twins. This case of conjoined twins was however an even more shocking and rare one.
The woman and her husband have now decided to let go & donate the body of the twins to the government medical college for research.
