In John 16:13-19 Jesus explains the role of the Holy Spirit to His disciples, and to you and me. “When the Holy Spirit, who is truth, comes, he shall guide you into all truth, for he will not be presenting his own ideas, but will be passing on to you what he has heard. He will tell you about the future.” In one sense, this was fulfilled when the New Testament writings, divinely inspired by God, were completed. In another sense the Holy Spirit continues today to personally lead us into truth, but never in opposition to the Scripture, because God’s supreme authority is closed with the New Testament. The Holy Spirit isn’t ‘making things up’ but rather teaching what God has already ordained as truth.
Jesus makes it clear that the Holy Spirit as part of the Trinity will glorify Him. “He shall praise me and bring…

Trust once broken can not be fixed, Its just like a piece of glass shuttered into many pieces, Or a broken egg or even spilled water, Nothing can really be done to fix the situation. Forgiveness is encouraged among people, And we are further advised to , Forgive and forget, But the forgetting part has conditions attached. We don't just forget, Resume to normal life, And catch up from where we left. No no no, I don't think so, We are all humans and will wrong each other, Once in a while.

Rev. Kaigama said this on Thursday while declaring open a meeting of Ethnic, Religious and Community Leaders on the recent attacks in some parts of Plateau State, held at the Dialogue Reconciliation and Peace (DREP) Centre, Jos.
According to him, “If foreign invaders, as alleged are the cause of our insecurity our security agents on whom trillions of naira are spent should smoke them and their local collaborators.
“And if the handwork of heartless insiders or politicians without conscience, allowing it to go on would imply that our security apparatus is so feeble and incapacitated that it cannot identify or tackle those fuelling the crisis.
“There is no denial that internal and external forces have infiltrated our communities to cause damage to lives and property, and something must be done to put a stop to their nefarious activities.”
Rev. Kaigama lamented that despite the effort to halt the killings, isolated attacks and killing of farmers still persisted in many rural communities in the country.
He added, “I understand that, even now, isolated attacks and killings still sadly go on. It is estimated that about 40, 000 people have abandoned their homes and fled from their farms or legitimate business’s, and are now living in hastily constructed camps.
“Both farmers and herders live in morbid fear of one another. Many also believe that the crisis is no longer about herders and farmers alone, but is being perpetrated by armed bandits or local and foreign invaders.”
