Ever since the days of camp meetings, Christians have thrived on intense periods of Bible teaching, worship, and prayer.Conferences aren’t just for pastors or church leaders, either. There are Christian conferences for moms, dads, women, men, Sunday School teachers, families, new Christians, old Christians, and medium Christians. Basically, there’s a Christian conference for anyone who is interested in deepening their relationship with Christ.

Many first-time Bible readers are surprised to learn that the New Testament begins with a genealogy (Matthew 1:1-16), Jesus’ family tree. Those same readers are even more surprised when Rahab shows up on the list.
Most of us know about her. She is almost always mentioned by in the Bible as “Rahab the harlot.” But that’s not all. Rahab was also a Canaanite-who were the hated enemies of Israel. Her most exemplary deed was telling a lie. Think about that. A Harlot, a Canaanite and a liar. You wouldn’t think she would have much chance of making the list, but there she is.
You can read about Rahab in Joshua 2 and Joshua 6….
It’s a great story with many lessons, but we mustn’t miss the point that Rahab was a harlot. That was her “trade.” The men hid there because people would be accustomed to seeing strangers come and go at all hours of the night. We also can’t deny the fact that Rahab told a bald-faced lie. Is there anything good we can say about her? Yes! She was a woman of faith. You don’t have to take my word for it. Hebrews 11:31 says, “By faith Rahab …” She was a believer!
Many people are intimidated by Jesus Christ. They hook him up with a lot of religious paraphernalia-big sanctuaries, stained glass, beautiful choir, pipe organs, formal prayers, and all the rest. When they look at the trappings, it’s all very intimidating to them. To many in the world today, Jesus seems too good to be true.
This genealogy is in the Bible to let us know that he had a background a lot like yours and mine. He called himself “the friend of sinners,” and he said he didn’t come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. He said, “The Son of man has come to seek and to save that which is lost.” (Luke 19:10)
The same grace that Rahab experienced is now available to you. I invite you in Jesus’ name to come and be forgiven. He’s already made the first move. The next step is up to you.
@Sekgobelalebo [#AUDITIONS]: Sooo. Here’s part of what I’m cooking. If you know you can sing, head down to Joburg Theatre on the 1st of February. I want to see you there. Lebo Sekgobela Family
The first ever annual Emalahleni Total Praise was a successful event with the following line-up: Neyi Zimu, Omega Khunou, Thina Zungu, Pondoza Psalms, Heart of Worship, Nompumelelo Mtsweni and Mthokozisi Masangi.
In attendace was Brigadier Delisiwe Motha, the station Commander of Vosman SAPS. She said she couldn’t wait to be blessed by anointed Lebo Sekgobela
Heart of Worship opened the Total Praise event, followed by Nompumelelo Mtsweni and so forth.
The Total Praise event was an anointed event, I for one came to the event to get a clearer picture of what I saw from the Umusa Dvd recording in Rhema bible church, Randburg, to South Africa State Theatre, Pretoria.
After I attended The first ever annual Emalahleni Total Praise I come with a conclusion there is a new gospel generation of anointing that Lebo Sekgobela is preaching . Among other things that I experienced, Lebo gives children the stage to perform the Lion of Judah for the fans and audiences give offering to which Lebo gives it to the Children performing .
Total praise is a gospel art absolute musical combining talents of our South African top artists Neyi Zimu, Omega Khunou, Thina Zungu, Pondoza Psalms, Heart of Worship, Nompumelelo Mtsweni and Mthokozisi Masangi, the harmony of this project is just unbelievable.
Allow me to take you through the performance through series of pictures.
The evening had different level of sacred moments for everyone. Each and every event attendee had a unique experiences Judging by the different expressions I saw as I was focused on capturing social media Pictures of the event as I was updating my Twitter handle @billysigudla, I can boldly say both gospel fans and artists experienced a certain level of supernatural power that was present in the Ridge auditorium. The auditorium was filled with the Holy spirit was filled .
Hey the Power of the Holy Spirit was too much.

Why We Must Weep
When we find ourselves in sin, the way back to unity with God is through acknowledging our wrongdoing, weeping in godly sorrow, and turning back to Him.
We often times seem to be okay with our sin. We overlook the severity of it and continue on with our lives, hoping the feelings of shame and guilt will go away. Sometimes, we even look at our next good deed as enough to cover for the sin we are living in as we shy away from true repentance.
The Bible tells us that our sin is an offense to God, yet our response to our sin is often one of disregard or acceptance. We casually go about our busy lives, too afraid and guilt-ridden to approach the God who has died for our forgiveness and the redemption of our soul and body.
Acknowledge Our Sin
Often times, we as Christians focus solely on the goodness of God. And while we should meditate on His goodness, it benefits us also to acknowledge our sin.
The common trait we as humans share is our sinful nature. When we acknowledge that we are sinners, though, we can put sin in its rightful place at the foot of the cross. Hiding behind our shame and guilt no longer has to be a part of our identity. We can now live in freedom, admit our sin before God, and obtain His loving mercy.
Whoever conceals his transgressions will not prosper, but he who confesses and forsakes them will obtain mercy. Proverbs 28:13
The world may consider the admission of shortcomings a weakness. But God, through our faults, reveals His very strength. His forgiveness and justification of us as His children are magnified when we are at our lowest.
Weep Over Our Sin
After acknowledging our sin, godly sorrow leads us to stop and weep over our sin, knowing our actions have dishonored the Creator of our being. He is the Creator who knows the numbers of hairs on our head, the One who knows our thoughts before we know them ourselves. Our sinfulness grieves His heart.
God cares deeply for us. As a result, He, like a good parent, must be just in His dealing with sin and wrongdoing in our lives. He knows the pain our sin will ultimately cause us and, instead, wants us to experience the joy and peace a life lived in His righteousness brings.
God doesn’t take sin lightly, and neither should we. He hates our sin because it is contrary to His holiness and, most of all, it separates us from Him. For Him to overlook our sin would render Him to be unjust and unholy. He cannot act against His own nature. However, God loves His people and does not ever leave us where we are.
For you are not a God who delights in wickedness; evil may not dwell with you. Psalm 5:4
Thankfully, God has called us out of darkness into marvelous light through His Son. Our lives are no longer defined by darkness, but rather by walking in the light of Christ, which cleanses us of our sin. But we must receive this gift through repentance.
This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin. If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 1 John 1:5-8
We do not weep and grieve out of guilt; we do so because our sin separates us from God. He created us to be in union with Him, yet when we sin, we fracture this union.
Some may see weeping and grieving over our sin as dwelling on what we hate and what is unrighteous. However, when we meditate on what God hates while focusing on the promise of His hope, weeping draws us closer to Him and further shapes us into His image.
Repent Of Our Sin
How we view God will determine how we see our sin. We miss the depth of who He is if we see Him only as a good, moral figure to follow. If we view Him, though, as the holy, just, and righteous Creator who commands glory and praise from His created, our sin will lead us to genuine repentance.
If we see our sin how God views it, we have no choice but to hate it and turn from it. In our repentance, we receive salvation, and God bridges the divide between Him and us.
Hope is lost in worldly grief. Hope is restored in godly sorrow.
For godly grief produces a repentance that leads to salvation without regret, whereas worldly grief produces death. 2 Corinthians 7:10
Our repentance leads to life as God intended it to be before the fall of humanity. It brings us back into unity with the Father.
There is redemption and life if we acknowledge it with truth, weep over it with godly sorrow, and repent with hope.
This must have also been an exciting time for the angels. It is at this time that we see the greatest amount of angelic activity. The Angel was visiting Mary and Joseph, as well as appearing to the shepherds. What a wonderful gift to the angels to know that they would be used to announce the good news of Jesus birth.Luke 1:38 Mary said, “I am the Lord’s servant, and I am willing to do whatever he wants. May everything you said come true.” And then the angel disappeared.Luke 2:10-11 the angel reassured them. “Don’t be afraid!” he said. “I bring you the most joyful news ever announced, and it is for everyone! The Savior—yes, the Messiah, the Lord—has been born tonight in Bethlehem!The angels sang that hope had come. Imagine being used to announce that Jesus was on earth!
PURITY IS WHAT WE NEED TO WIN OVER COME THE ENEMY.
9“When you go to war against your enemies, stay away from everything impure. DEUTERONOMY 23:9
- Holiness is the Way of our victory.
Christianity is a serious battle and our God has set a side one condition for us to win the battle that is purity. We cannot fight the enemy with his weapon. The weapon of the enemy is impurity. Thus we cannot neglect purity and hope to win over Satan.
God says be holy because I am holy. Our God is the God of Holiness and for us to overcome our enemy the devil we need to be holy at all times.
Most defeated Christians are those who try to fight our battle with the weapon of the enemy. Our weapon is not flesh and blood. 2 Cor 10:3-4 3 For though we live in the flesh, we do not wage war according to the flesh. 4 The weapons of our warfare are not the weapons of the world. Instead,they have divine power to demolish strongholds .5 We tear down arguments, and every presumption set up against the knowledge of God;and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ
Scripture Ref: Ephesians 6:10-18
Ephesians 6:10-18 ‘Therefore my beloved brethren, be ye strong in the LORD & in the power of HIS might. Put on the whole armor of GOD that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh & blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of GOD that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, & having done all to stand, Stand therefore, with your loins girt about with truth, & having on the breastplate of righteousness, & your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace. Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith you shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. & take the helmet of salvation & the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of GOD, Praying always with all supplication in the Spirit, & perseverance & supplication for all saints.’
I would like to open my commentary by first thanking Minister Lebo Sekgobe For the anointed show, the show has blessed me so much I have include a review below. Again thanking a clothing brand kingdom Armour Clothing when that I met when I was attending a Concert by The Lion of Judah Hit maker Minister Lebo Sekgobela at the South Africa State Theatre this past Saturday 08 December 2018 see the review I published on my site on the following link :- https://siphiwebillysigudla.com/2018/12/08/sekgobelalebo-at-south-africa-state-theatre-sastatetheatre-mzansifela-festival-went-well/
Thus far we have looked at these pieces of spiritual armor.
V17 ‘Take the helmet of salvation.’
The Belt of Truth
The Breastplate of Righteousness
The Shoes of Peace
The Shield of the Faith
The Helmet of Salvation
If we were to take the SIMPLIEST APPLICATION to what the HELMET of SALVATION means it would be that we had better BE SAVED if are going to BATTLE against the DEVIL —– because EVERYBODY & ANYBODY who doesn’t KNOW JESUS CHRIST as their SAVOUR & LORD —– LOSES EVERY DAY & will LOSE ULTIMATELY to the DEVIL. Our VICTORY over the DEVIL comes ONLY through a SAVING RELATIONSHIP with JESUS CHRIST, the SON of the LIVING GOD.
So the HELMET of SALVATION means to BE SAVED if we are going to be VICTORIOUS. There is a SPIRITUAL POWER that comes from being SAVED.
HELMETS are used for PROTECTION by people riding down the road on MOTOR CYCLES. CHILDREN riding BYCYCLES wear HELMETS. CONSTRUCTION WORKERS wear HELMETS at work. FIREFIGHTERS wear HELMETS. SOLDIERS in combat wear HELMETS.
& the PURPOSE for the HELMET is UNDERSTANDABLE — it is there to PROTECT a very IMPORTANT PART of the BODY — the HEAD.
& WHAT is so IMPORTANT about trying to PROTECT the HEAD?
One may survive a broken arm while in battle or a few broken ribs but a head injury could easily become fatal. An INJURY to the HEAD is a SERIOUS INJURY. INCASED within the HEAD is the BRAIN. & the BRAIN is the CENTER of our THINKING & of our EMOTIONS. So if we are going to PROTECT ANYTHING it needs to be our MINDS & our THINKING because many times the BATTLE —- BEFORE it takes place anywhere else it takes place —– 1st in the MIND
The MIND is the prime target in all of our battles against Satan. One good BLOW to our MINDS is often times ALL the DEVIL needs to ACCOMPLISH his tasks. Many times ALL the DEVIL has to do to CREATE DEVASTATION & DESTRUCTION is to PLACE HIS THOUGHTS into someone’s MIND. & then BOOM! Sparks & Fireworks can fly as if it were the 4th of July; splinters scatter.
How many of us will ADMIT there are TIMES when you KNOW the DEVIL is ATTACKING your MIND. He is TRYING to get into your THOUGHTS & your THINKING PROCESS & he is trying to PULL YOU in a DIRECTION you don’t need to go? He is trying to get you to do things or say things you know you shouldn’t?
So what PAUL is telling us to do here is to PROTECT our MINDS from the DEVIL. No soldier would go to battle without putting on his HELMET. & we should not enter into SPIRITUAL BATTLE without our HELMET of SALVATION.
& if we are going to be WHO we NEED to BE as CHRISTIANS —– then we NEED to GUARD our MINDS & to FILL our MINDS with the RIGHT THINGS & KEEP our MINDS on the RIGHT THINGS.
We get SAVED when we give our lives to the LORD JESUS CHRIST but we need to take our SALVATION FURTHER than just GIVING our HEARTS to CHRIST. We NEED to DEVELOP a SPIRITUAL LIFE.
How many would AGREE that as CHRISTIANS we need to be GROWING in the LORD? We need to DEVELOP our MINDS SPIRITUALLY.
Make sure our MINDS are SAVED & SANCTIFIED.
As we CONSIDER the HELMET of SALVATION we want to LOOK at these 3 things:
1} The POWER of the MIND.
2} The POLLUTION of the MIND.
3} The POTENTIAL of the MIND.
1} The POWER of the MIND:
There was a TELEVISION COMMERCIAL several years ago that made this statement.
A MIND is a TERRIBLE THING to WASTE. How True! Amen?
That COMMERCIAL FOCUSED on DRUGS & the POWER they have to DESTROY the MIND. Because the MIND is indeed a TERRIBLE THING to WASTE. DRUGS WEAKEN the MIND!
That’s WHY the DEVIL has multitudes of people WASTED by DRUGS today. He loves it when people’s MINDS are WEAK & WASTED.
There is a SPIRITUAL POWER in a SAVED MIND. Amen?
#1} There is POWER in a DISCIPLINED & DILIGENT & a STUDIOUS MIND:
The DEVIL likes it when we are EVERYTHING BUT such.
There are PREACHERS who only know HOW to PREACH ONE SERMON:
Regardless of WHAT the SCRIPTURE is they ALWAYS get on that SAME SUBJECT.
There are those who SIMPLY DO NOT PREPARE ahead of time. They DON’T STUDY.
I heard of pastors reading a SERMON out of a CHURCH MAGAZINE word for word & that was their MESSAGE to the CHURCH that Sunday.
Now that took a LOT of STUDY & PREPARATION Didn’t it? POWERLESS
Preachers who say; “Well, I don’t know WHAT I am going to PREACH UNTIL I get in the PULPIT & then the HOLY SPIRIT tells me.’
If we SEEK GOD BEFOREHAND GOD will GIVE some INSPIRATION. Amen? WHATEVER we DO for the LORD it DESERVES our BEST!
In LIFE a MIND that is DISCIPLINED & STUDIOUS & PREPARED is a POWERFUL THING.
We’re FINDING OUT in the WORLD we’re living in today — IF you want to EARN a GOOD LIVING you have to have a GOOD EDUCATION or a LEARNED SKILL in some sought after area. & that REQUIRES DISCIPLINE. There is POWER in a DISCIPLINED MIND.
The same is TRUE with a SPIRITUAL MIND. There is a lot of SPIRITUAL IGNORANCE of TODAY. & that is SAD & DANGEROUS.
SPIRITUAL IGNORANCE is a FIELD DAY for the DEVIL.
The DEVIL wants to get INTO OUR MINDS. Tell us all sorts of LIES & DECEPTION.
The BIBLE that spends it’s time ON A SHELF or in the CAR SEAT or LEFT at CHURCH isn’t ANY BENEFIT to us.
David wrote, Psalm 119:11 ‘Thy WORD have I hid in my heart, that I might not sin against GOD.’
Again, there is a LOT of SPIRITUAL IGNORANCE today that makes the DEVIL so HAPPY!
But when you KNOW that you KNOW that you KNOW that you KNOW, there is POWER in that KNOWLEDGE.
#2: There is POWER in a DETERMINED MIND:
When you have MADE UP your MIND it is HARD for the DEVIL to TURN YOU AROUND. We absolutely have to have a DETERMINED MADE UP MIND if we expect to WIN in this SPIRITUAL BATTLE.
We won’t get VERY FAR in this SPIRITUAL WARFARE WITHOUT a DETERMINED MIND. I don’t EXPECT the BATTLE to be EASY.
I KNOW there will be SOME BATTLES to FIGHT & SOME of them will be DIFFICULT.
I EXPECT some WOUNDS along the way. FLASH BACKS at times of some past battles.
But IF we are DETERMINED & we place our TRUST in the LORD we can MAKE IT.
’Many are the afflictions of the righteous but the LORD delivers us from them all.’
PAUL wrote to TIMOTHY in
II Timothy 2:3 ‘Thou therefore endure hardness as a good soldier of JESUS CHRIST.’
We don’t get to ESCAPE HARD TIMES we have to ENDURE HARD TIMES.
& we have to BE DETERMINED to NOT LET HARDSHIPS & SUFFERINGS DETER US.
Do we have a DETERMINED MIND? Can we be PERSUADED otherwise?
That’s EXACTLY what SATAN did to JOB & he’ll do the SAME to us today.
JESUS said, Revelation 2:10 “Be thou FAITHFUL UNTIL DEATH & I will give thee a CROWN of LIFE.’
The QUESTION is WHY?
PAUL wrote: Romans 8:18 ‘For I reckon that the SUFFERINGS of this PRESENT WORLD are not WORTHY to be COMPARED to the GLORY which SHALL BE REVEALED in us.’
Those who are DETERMINED in their MINDS will be GREATLY COMPENSATED. Amen?
The future CROWN far outweighs the present CROSS!
There is POWER in a DETERMINED— PERSUADED— MADE UP MIND.
#2} The POLLUTION of the MIND:
There is MORE to POLLUTED MINDS than being addicted to R & X rated movies.
MINDS that are FILLED with the WRONG STUFF:
& they often DO NOT REALIZE the DAMAGE it is doing to their lives & their spirits.
The DEVIL would love for us to FOCUS on all the NEGATIVE STUFF.
STUFF that is DISCOURAGING to us SPIRITUALLY & MENTALLY
You have to be UP before you can UPLIFT others. That is WHY the DEVIL wants us to be DEPRESSED & DISCOURAGED. DARK & DREARY in MIND.
You hear of SOMEBODY being SICK & you begin to THINK, ‘You know that’s what I think I’ve got too.”
There are people who LOVE to DWELL upon GOSSIP & NEGATIVITY.
The CHURCH ISN’T WHAT it USED to BE!
Not SUPPOSED to BE—– WHAT it USED to BE.The TRUTH is the CHURCH is WHAT we MAKE it BE!
There are TOO MANY GLOOM & DOOM MINDS filled with POLLUTION.
We NEED to be CAREFUL WHAT ENTERS into our MINDS! Can you say AMEN?
Put on the HELMET of SALVATION:
Paul wrote to the Philippians 4:8 ‘Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report, if there be any virtue & if there be any praise, think on these things.’
We NEED to RESIST WHAT the WORLD is TRYING to PUT INTO OUR MINDS so that we won’t be DEFEATED by the DEVIL.
JESUS PRAYED for HIS DISCIPLES:
“FATHER I pray that YOU TAKE THEM NOT OUT of the WORLD but that YOU would KEEP them FROM the EVIL that is in the WORLD.’
That is SOMETHING we have to WANT — NOT INFLUENCED by the WORLD.
We CANNOT be a PART of THIS WORLD & have a SAVED MIND.
#3} The POTENTIAL of the MIND:
There is GREAT POTENTIAL for the SAVED MIND of the CHRISTIAN:
If our MIND is FOCUSED in the RIGHT DIRECTION it can be a POWERFUL WEAPON AGAINST the ATTACKS of the DEVIL.
#1:} The MIND has the POTENTIAL to LOVE:
JESUS said in Matthew 22:37 ‘LOVE the LORD your GOD with all your heart, with all your soul, with all of your strength & with ALL of your MIND.’
That means our MINDS are THINKING & DWELLING upon the LORD & LOVING HIM in our THOUGHTS on a REGULAR BASIS.
That makes it DIFFICULT for the DEVIL to PERSUADE us to DO SOMETHING that is CONTRARY to GOD’S WILL for our lives.
A MIND that if FILLED with a LOVE for GOD is a POWERFUL WEAPON AGAINST the DEVIL.
That’s why JESUS told HIS DISCIPLES in Luke 22:19 as HE passed the BROKEN BREAD ‘As oft as you do this, do it in REMEMBRANCE of ME.’
When the LORD DELIVERED the ISREALITES from EGYPT there is ONE THING GOD asked of them. ‘KEEP your MINDS upon WHAT I have DONE for you.’
GOD instructed them to TALK about it in the MORNING, in the MIDDLE of the DAY & at NIGHT.
Being MINDFUL of the GOODNESS of GOD upon our lives is a POWERFUL WEAPON that has the POTENTIAL to RESIST the PULLS of the DEVIL.
LOVE the LORD with ALL of OUR MIND.
When our MINDS have WANDERED AWAY from GOD’S GOODNESS & BLESSINGS upon our lives it EASY for the DEVIL to PULL us AWAY.
But when OUR MINDS are filled with LOVE, —- RECALLING the BLESSINGS of the LORD upon our lives, it is HARD for the DEVIL to PULL us AWAY.
#2} The POTENTIAL of a TRANSFORMED MIND:
Romans 12:2 ‘Be not CONFORMED to this world but be ye TRANSFORMED by the RENEWING of your MIND.’
Paul says ‘If we want our lives to CHANGE then we must 1st RENEW our MINDS.’ We have to CHANGE WHAT we THINK.
Begin to BELIEVE that we CAN LIVE SPIRITUAL VICTORIOUS LIVES.
I CAN LIVE for GOD. Not filled with DOUBT & UNBELIEF!
The DEVIL LOVES to HEAR ‘I just don’t know how much more I can take.’
The DEVIL is THINKING: ONE MORE BATTLE & I’ve got them.”
Romans 8: 38-39 PAUL gave a LONG LIST of things he had EXPERIENCED as ATTACKS from the DEVIL & then he declared: ‘I am persuaded that NONE of these things shall SEPARATE ME from the LOVE of GOD.”
Acts 20:24 he said: “NONE of these things MOVE ME.”
ne of the concerts that I have attended this year 2018 is was tonight 08th December 2018 by Minister Lebo Sekgobela at South Africa State theatre Mzansi fela festival. Where Lebo and her team that worship Christ by their anointed voices. These young men and women were also known for their performances all over South African,I thank the Lord for such souls dedicated their lives to preach by praising God. Most of their songs are from the new Lebo Sekgobela Dvd Umusa. The lion of Judah hit Minister Lebo gave it to kids as one of the elder fan did mention she was taught the song by her child. The fans gave a lot of money as offering on stage but minister Lebo gave it to all the kids who got exposure and sang for the crowd as their payment to encourage them. Granny where also amongst the crowd.
