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.

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!

THE REVIVAL AND THE MOVES OF GOD

Genesis 2:4-6
[4]These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens,
[5]And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.
[6]But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.

God had not caused it to rain upon the earth because there was no man. God is helpless without a man and will never be able to send down His rain(move) on earth without a man.

Thus, there are two elements that makes up the move of God:
1. A man
2. Territories

What is the Move of God?
The move of God is God moving men through roles in His agenda which births events called Revivals.
A revelation of Alignment!

Kingdom advancement is territorial and not just personal. The value system of the kingdom must translate from you and be reflected in your…

GOD'S UNIVERSAL AGENDA: THE EVERLASTING KINGDOM.

There is a kingdom which transcend beyond kingdoms that are bound by time, which is ruled by vanity. This Kingdom is void of human corruption, absent of pain and hatred. This Kingdom is eternal and sovereign.
It is known as the Kingdom of God.

THE 21ST CENTURY MIRACLE

Isaiah 8:17-18
[17]And I will wait upon the LORD, that hideth his face from the house of Jacob, and I will look for him.
[18]Behold, I and the children whom the LORD hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the LORD of hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion.


God hides himself from a generation that they may seek Him. And only those that seek Him in a generation finds Him. These ones become Signs(Systems of Reference) and do Wonders!
It is only those that know(have found) their God that are: Strong(a sign)and do Exploits(Wonders)!


Thus, you are the miracle your Generation needs!

You are a sign for signs; you're supernatural.
You are a sign for wonders; you're a miracle.
You are for signs and wonders.
But do you know the miracle this century needs?


As a miracle for you to happen, you have to understand the difference between signs, wonders and miracles. The illustration attached above explains this.

Having seen thus;
1. Do not confuse the signs for all believers as mi…
