SEIZE THE DAY

Good morning friends, I am writing on the topic 'seize the day' because i almost would not have written a topic at all today due to some constraints that came up from not seizing the day.
Then I realised it is one thing to see the day and another thing to seize the day! 

If i had failed to write this up still, then I just 'saw' the day. Thanks to God for the grace to 'seize' the day.


THE DAY.

Word web: The time after sunrise and before sunset while it is light outside.
Genesis 1:4-5:
And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.
And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

It is important to note that God saw the light, just like everyone of us is seeing the light(day) today. Seeing it was not enough, He seized it.

Below I will be sharing  three things  i have discovered every man should do with the day i mean everyday of our life.
1. See the day: Just like I said earlier seeing the day is not enough but that is the first thing every man must do. We all must do more than to see the day, we must seize the day!

Immediately God saw the light, He swung into action. He started the works he already planned for the day; He separated light from darkness.

'He saw the light that it was good!' Everyday is good by default, and it is man's inability to seize it that makes it a bad- day.
I wonder when I ask a friend after the day and he says he had a bad day. I sometimes wonder why?
To seize is to take old of/ capture by force, and every of the 7.2 billion souls in the world is after seizing the good of the day, when you lapse you must be left with the bad of the day. I hope you will now agree with me the bad(rest) of the day is what is called a bad day.

2. Name the day: "And God called the light Day and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and morning were the first day".
It's also important for you to note that God only called the morning and evening day, He never made mention of the Night.( I think the morning and night makes a complete day).
God named the day, He knew what he wanted in the day; morning-evening, no night, no darkness. Just light!
How do you name your day? Do remember everyday is a good day, Every day contains the light. See it and name it!
Name the things you want in the day, Righteousness, Joy and Peace in the Holy-ghost!

3. Speak:

Joshua 10:12- Then spake Joshua to the LORD in the day when the LORD delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel, Sun, stand thou still upon Gibeon; and thou, Moon, in the valley of Ajalon.


Then Joshua spake to the Lord... Anything you speak to the lord in the day concerning the day is always done! The day contains the light and its the time both God and man works. You have to do all you want to do in the day- Pray, Plan, Dream.... all in the day.
Joshua said it in the sight of Israel.... What do you say into the day? Can you say those things before God, your friends, family members, colleagues and all?
Be positive about your words and be confident about them because they will come to pass.
The sun and moon obeyed Joshua because he seized the day, he spake positive words confidently before the Israelite.

John 9:4- I must work the works of him that sent m, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.

If you will agree with me, if you fail to see, name and speak into the day you won't be able to do that to the night. If that will be possible dear friend do well to reach me, because, the night is all about darkness! And what relationship hath light with darkness?(II Corinthians 6:14).
Even Jesus Christ our Saviour knew there is a night no man can work including him!
If you go back to Genesis 1, you will discover even God did not attempt working in the night. How much more you! Joshua knew this and he had to seize the day for God to fight their battle for them.

Do well to seize Today!

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.

KAIROS: THE MYSTERY OF TIME

At the very beginning of Jesus’ earthly ministry  Jesus tells of a great opportunity: God’s kingdom is within our reach. To enter the kingdom, however, we must go through a process of REPENTANCE and BELIEF.

Mark 1:14‭-‬15 KJV‬‬: Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God,  And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.

Through this process we learn how:
-To lay down our lives
-Pick up the cross
-Follow Jesus into the kingdom

These three highlights aren’t steps but a circle that represents our Journey into the kingdom of God and time: the kairos moments in our lives which is the portal through which we enter into Kingdom living.

What is a Kairos Moment? 
A portal (access) through which we enter into dimensions of results. It is a moment and moments defines time just like seasons define destiny.
Eg: Jesus’ death on the cross was not a last-ditch effort on God’s  part …

BOLDNESS: the requirement for Servanthood.

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.

HOW COME THAT IDIOT IS RICH AND I AM NOT?

Here is why..,
That idiot is had an encounter with the spirit realm, an encounter with the Spirit of God not mammon. He's firstly  sure who is master is as this is the secret to a lasting financial life and destiny.

.....for it is in the office of God by His Spirit to give you the power to make wealth (Deuteronomy 8:18 emphasis added) but you have to remember Him(God).

SERVANTHOOD

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.
