Self-professed born again Christian and Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh, has gone spiritual yet again on social media as she begins the new season by affecting her fans with her new found love in Christ in series of posts.
Talking about serving God, the mom-of-one wrote few hours ago:
“This is the most popular lie the devil has got the child of God under.. When you serve God everything matters..How you look matters,how you dress matters,How you eat,Speak matters? How you relate matters? My fellow brethren how are you gonno convert the billionaires in these shoes and tell em that your God is Able?? How you gonno convert a hungry man when you look more hungry? God didn’t call you to put you in the Z-list suitation? Nor did he call you to use you to serve him and he leaves you in rags. Jesus was never dirt,As a matter of fact we all wear the Jesus sandals today(highly fashionable) My darlings,brethren’s,my fellow Christians the devil has held you back for so long only becos you don’t know what God says you are.. It’s a pity that some of us our enemies know OUR worth more than we do,They believe in you more than you believe in yourself if not they wldnt want you down.. No one empties an empty barrel…
Tontolet continued preaching by adding that:
“Check this out “God said we were created in his own image and likeness,He(God) says as I am so are you in this world.God created the world,he owns it all,He is rich so you should be!! Poverty or poverty mentality is a tool used more often to keep u & ur creativity/Purpose/Grace Grounded. Who told you Jesus worked in shoes like these,Listen when God sets you up in his Glory you will show up in a bloody red bottoms feet,Rolex on my hand,@figureluxuryhair on the Hair, @dabota_cosmetic on the face beat/talking skin by @pelsinternational and that Gorg Hermès bag,pulling out your bible and preaching the word of God to people who needs God.Pls let people see What kind of God you serve from the out to the inside..Becos you come looking like a bag of money THEY AUTOMATICALLY KNOW UR GOD AINT ON JOKES,Vice Versa.”
The controversial actress went further, adding that:
“God deserves better,You deserve better.. Living in God means experiencing Heaven on earth,Living in Over Comfort.. Christians you were born Eagles,don’t belittle your pretty self being A chicken. Don’t cluck when you should be Sow high in the skies.. Know the word of God,Understand and your life can/will never be the same again,Halleuyah somebody!!! #Change the way you pray #Success is for Gods child #WEALTH is yours(Speak yourself into your weal” – @tontolet on Instagram
On Thursday, the actress took to her Instagram page to share a sermon on “An Entirely New Life,” quoting copiously from the Holy book.
According to her sermon:
If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new (2 Corinthians 5:17).* The term “born again” isn’t a religious cliché, which connotes turning over a new leaf. When you ask some Christians how they know they’re born again, some would reply, “I know I’m born again, because the bad things I used to do, I do them no more. I’ve changed my ways, and now, I behave differently.” Being born again is much more than that. What you receive when you’re born again is an entirely new life. There’s no such thing as “The bad things I used to do, I do them no more,” because the person who did those things is dead. He doesn’t exist any more. When you received Christ into your life, something actually happened: your spirit was recreated. You were born of the Word of God and of the Spirit of God.” You now have the life, nature and character of God. And when a man has the life, nature and character of God, he can only live like God. So, being born again is actually receiving the God-nature; becoming an associate of the God-kind.
Below is another posts of her talking about confession and being born again:
Good morning beautiful people of God,(ROR) Agree With The Word *That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation (Romans 10:9-10).* Confession in our opening text means speaking the same thing in consent. If God has said something, and you say something that’s in consonance with what He has said, that’s confession.
For example, the Word says the Lord is with you always until the end of the age. Therefore, never say, “O God, be with me”; to speak like that is to be in conflict with God’s Word. You ought to say, “Lord, I thank you for you’re with me always.” The Bible says, “Can two walk together, except they be agreed?” (Amos 3:3). The way to walk in agreement with God is to do His Word or act in line with the Word; that’s where the blessing is: “But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed” (James 1:25).
Our opening text says, “…if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” Anyone who, in response to that, declares the Lordship of Jesus, believing that God raised Him from the dead, is saved and will never go to hell. However, if after making that declaration someone goes ahead to say, “I don’t know whether I’m saved or not,” they repudiate their salvation. Never speak against the Word. Don’t invalidate your faith by speaking words that conflict with the will of God for you. The way to an ever vibrant, ever glorious and successful life is talking the Word only, regardless of circumstances. There’re not enough problems in the world to hinder your progress if you’d speak and live in consonance with the Word.
What do you think about the actress’s new-found Christian experience?
