BOLDNESS: the requirement for Servanthood.

Image
While it is not scriptural to pray for faith,  you can ask God for boldness.
Very soon after the early church had received the baptism of the Holy Spirit, we see them petition for it.
-It takes Boldness to dispense the anointing  NOT just faith.
Faith is used to receive not dispense(create) in the operations of the anointing.Though the gift of faith manifests boldness too.

SERVANTHOOD

Image
2 Peter 1:1 – Simon Peter,  a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ.
The Apostle Peter’s first letter was a message of encouragement, instruction and admonition to the Christians who were scattered throughout Asia minor.

Even though he was part of Jesus' inner circle and was a pillar in the early church , he opens his letter by calling himself a servant.



This shows you that it doesn’t matter how long you have been a Christian or how mightily the Lord used to,  you are always a servant.

THE SECRET PLACE

Image
In the Old Testament,  the “Secret place” comes from the Hebrew root word “Cether”, which means to hide/be concealed.
And really, no matter is hidden or concealed in a place or thing if it wasn’t the fragment of their make up.

What then is the secret place?
Psalm 139:15(NIV) – my frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place.

KINGDOM LIVING

Image
There was a challenge in how the disciples understood the presence of God to be. They had a terrible reverence for that presence.
-The presence that killed Aaron’s two sons (Leviticus 10:1-2)
-Uzzah died when he grabbed hold of the Ark of the covenant (2 Samuel 6:6-7)
-The presence that could kill the High priest if he carnally entered the Holy of Hollies. He had to take many precautions to ensure he was ritually pure and still with a back up priest in case it all goes wrong (Exodus 28:33-35)

THE KINGDOM

Image
The kingdom is not a religion or a tradition. It is the Almighty God residing in men and women. 

The kingdom is not Christianity as a religion but Christianity as a lifestyle.  I would have loved to call it 'our kingdom' because it is a mandate for humanity:- A destiny all must come into (but) through Jesus!

When God made(not create) man, He gave him a Kingdom and not a religion.

Have you ever wondered about this?
-God didn’t create a religion,  he did create a kingdom!
God is not a Christian,  He is the God of all flesh (Jeremiah 32:27).
God is interested in you, and this is the Kingdom!

Thus, Jesus Christ came to restore man back to God,  to restore humanity back to God’s original mandate. Where God resides in man and can control the affairs of the earth.
2 Corinthians 4:7: we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

MANIPULATION

Image
Manipulation is a strong word or subject in this generation yet we sit and watch the degeneration it causes to our generation everyday and in our everyday situation.
-To manipulate is to negotiate, control or influence for one’s advantage.
It’s all about using people to achieve the desired outcome.
Manipulation is more than being selfish or being self-centred. It is self-seeking!

THE MYSTERY OF HIS PRESENCE

Image
Have you ever wondered why God will not honour the words of certain men and honour that of another?
Have you ever thought about something  like this or experienced this:
The Bible says .....You shall lay your hands upon the sick and they will recover(Mark 16:18b). You laid your hands and instead of a recovery, you found a discovery – that the man is not healed and the sickness/disease has back-fired. This can be painful......  until a young man comes and at the sound of his voice, the infirmity flees.
Has this ever bothered you?
Or that a man speaks into existence instantly what you have been begging God for with fasting and prayers.




I bring you a mystery today!
