DONT GO TO HELL OVER A MYSTERY.

Good morning friends. 'Don't go to hell over a mystery', isn't this itself mysterious?
I think the phrase we might find confounding but some words of course familiar.

Hell- its a place everyone of us knows, heard about and we talk about as we understand it, a place no one want's to end up lest its not believed to exist. I know some of my friends out there will say why is he talking abut hell this morning?



I have searched through pages of the scripture and even scriptures written by some Generals of God and I have come to realise that 'submission to Gods rule and living in accordance with his moral law(expressed concisely in the ten commandments is a response to grace- Its never something which can earn Gods acceptance(legalism)'.

Even with this grace upon a man i.e you obeying all commandments, walking blamelessly and  being perfect like father Abraham, one more thing could still lead such a one to hell. Its called Mystery!

Mystery- Something that baffles understanding and cannot be explained. (Source; word web dictionary)

I Corinthians 1:27- But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty.

Even our God is interested in confounding the wise! Why friends? " Say ye to the righteous it is well with him; for they shall eat the fruit of their doings."- Isaiah 3:10 KJV. Now when things we refer to as evil befall a righteous, do we say it is the fruits of their doings? NO! and that's the best way to describe mystery.  
" Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power; for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created" - Revelations 4:11 KJV. Then mysteries too are created for His pleasure.

Elisha received double portion of the anointing and spirit that was on Elijah(II kings2). Scholars wrote that Elijah performed 16 miracles however, Elisha experienced 32, which is double the miracle of his teacher; Elijah. Toward the conclusion of Elisha's life we read, "Elisha had become sick with the illness of which he would die"- II kings 19:14.
Elisha died(II kings 19v20)! Elisha that raised a dead? Yes. What makes this statement confounding is that after Elisha died, during a battle a dead soldier was thrown into the burial crypt of Elisha, and the dead man revived when he touched Elisha bones (verse 20-21).

The Mystery: With this level of God's power within the bones of this dead prophet, why would, or better yet, how could any form of sickness attach itself to this mighty man of God? Would not the resurrecting power within his body attack any sickness in the body?
The greatest mystery to me is; if he did 32 miracles which is 16x2 i.e double, and his master did not die but was 'taken' by a chariot of fire in a whirlwind into heaven(II Kings2:11), why was he not taken in a double anointing form instead of death? Mystery!!

Friends, Can you reason along with me and lets conclude he died for that soldier to be raised from dead? I mean after the 32nd miracle, he got an extra that really explained the double anointing in a confounding way? It's still confounding right? That's how our lives are!

At times you will have a very godly person who believes in prayers, healing and miracles who will pass away suddenly through an accident/ a disease. The church will pray and believe, yet no change.The godly person will move to his/her eternal destination. In some cases, this situation of praying yet not receiving puts a huge crack in the shield of faith for some of us.
Instead of thanking God for the person and knowing they will see him again in heaven, they begin to question Gods authority and willingness to heal or to answer prayers in the future.

This is a serious issue with some. I suggest that you should never change your biblical theology to accommodate a tragedy said Perry Stone. Do not change the theology of healing, even though your body has never experienced a full recovery, never change your theology of blessings because you are yet to be fully blessed!

When things happen and they are confounding, remember they are for bis pleasure and it's well with you. remember for the rest of your life to always declare; I'll not go to hell over a mystery!

I love you all,
CL Blogs loves you,
Happy Sunday.

THE 7 DISPENSATIONS IN THE BIBLE

Dispensationalism is a method of interpreting history that divides God’s work and purposes toward mankind into different periods of time. Usually, there are seven dispensations identified, although some theologians believe there are nine. Others count as few as three or as many as thirty-seven dispensations. 

In this article, we will limit ourselves to the seven basic dispensations found in scripture.

THE MYSTERY CALLED MAN

Psalm 8:4-6
[4]What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?
[5]For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.
[6]Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet

Everything in heaven and on Earth was created for man but man cannot make use of it until he knows WHAT HE IS.

Heaven was never created for God. Heaven and Earth were created for man... But it takes a man who knows WHAT he is to accurately represent God on earth, because, man is meant to extend the fullness of God in the earth for God and so, in reality, God needs men!

We came from God; not heaven and we are returning to God through heaven!
1 Timothy 3:16
[16]And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.

The Lord Jesus did all …

IS HEAVEN THE THRONE OF GOD?

Psalm 11:4: The Lord is in His holy temple; the LORD's throne IS IN Heaven; His eyes behold, His eyelids test the sons of men.

This verse separate the Lord's throne from Heaven but opens our eyes to an operation; a modus - operandi. The Lord's throne IS IN HEAVEN!

An Estate as a case study!
I do not live in an Estate; I currently dwell in the cave adullam as we speak but you'd hear a couple of person say "I live in Harmony Estate" as an example but this individual's house is literally "in" [inside] the Estate. For example; House #24, Harmony Estate...

It is on this basis I exclaimed "Heaven is not God's throne!" in the message THE MYSTERY CALLED MAN.

There is Heaven and God has a throne!
I stand today boldly that God has a literal throne, but He created Heaven someday and thus, the throne existed before Heaven.

After the creation of the Heaven and the Earth...
The Heavens by the activity of men causes the throne of God to be operate…

SHOULD WOMEN COVER THEIR HAIRS IN CHURCH?

It is common practice for some women to cover their heads when they go to church. Others cover their heads when praying. Since 1 Corinthians 11:4-6 states that women should cover their heads when praying, several questions arise:
Did the apostle Paul refer to a cultural situation where women wore a head covering? Should women cover their hairs and if so, with what?                                                                  Was Paul addressing the situation of women praying or prophesying in the church or outside the church?1 Corinthians 11:4-5 states that all women should cover HEADS not HAIR when praying!

To understand this better, Download the Podcast:  Should Women Cover their Hairs in Church 
Meaning of the Words “Head” and “Uncovered”
1 Corinthians 11:4-6 appears to some to teach that women should wear a scarf or something else on their heads. However, the question is where?

Every man who has something on his head while praying or prophesying disgraces his head. But every woman…

THE MYSTERY OF HIS PRESENCE

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!
