THE PARABLE OF THE FROG

Good day Friends, we have come to an end on the series of the Past, but not on Your Life Now.
Today we will be learning from an article i saw on the frog. Sit back, read and enjoy.


II Corinthians 6:14, KJV: Be ye not equally yoked together with unbelievers; for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?


Put a frog in a vessel of water and start heating the water. As the temperature of the water rises, the frog is able to adjust its body temperature accordingly.
The frog keeps on adjusting with the increase in temperature.
Just when the water is about to reach boiling point, the frog is not able to adjust anymore. At that point, the frog decides to jump out.The frog tries to jump but its unable to do so, because it has lost all its strength in adjusting with the rising water temperature. Very soon the frog dies.

What killed the frog?

Most of us will say the boiling water!
I Thessalonians 5:22 KJV: Abstain from all appearance of evil. 
The truth is what killed the frog was its own inability to jump out. 'The frog failed to abstain.......'

ABSTINENCE
Word-web dictionary defines it' the act or practice of refraining from...' that's all i need from the definition. To abstain is to refrain, it's an action word. You don't just say it, you act it. Do you know when to refrain and things to refrain from? Probably that will be a topic for another day.

We all need to adjust with people and situations, but we need to be sure when we need to adjust and when we need to abstain! I mean when we need to confront/face and leave our comfort zone.
There are times when we need to face those situations and take appropriate action.
I mean times when we need restrain. If we allow people and situations to exploit us physically, mentally, emotionally or financially, they will continue to do so. 

 "what God ordains He retains truly, buy you have also got some things to abstain from". 

Friends, "resist the devil and he will flee from you"- James4:7 (KJV).
Resisit devourers, exploiters and those kind of relationships and they will flee.
'Do not wait for the weight'. Run for your dear lives while you still have the strength.

Finally let me leave you with this piece; 
No relationship or condition is worth your life, peace and joy. 
"Love your neighbor as yourself not more than yourself"... Mark 12:31 
(KJV, Emphasis added). 
There is no other greater commandment than these.

Shalom!

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…
