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!
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!
This material aims to educate you on the operation of God’s presence helping you differentiate it from the rewards of His presence.
The rewards of His presence:
These are bye-products of His presence that we most times call results in our physical realm.
We most times describe them as spiritual but in their selves they aren’t.
They are the things we can relate with in our realms here(the physical realm) – healing; miracles of all kinds that can be seen, felt, smelt and touched!
Psalm 97:5 – The mountains melt like wax at the presence of the LORD, at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth (NKJV)
It sounds too fast asking you how you will spend eternity when you should be asked where will you spend eternity, right?
Eternity is that timeless existence, timelessness or after life, and it begins here on earth.
- If how you spend here determines where you spend eternity, then ‘how’ is the key to eternity not ‘where’.
3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.
