THE PAST!

Still on the series: The New Life Now!!

2 Corinthians 5:17King James Version (KJV)
17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

"If any man", the word any man here is stressing the fact that God is not interested in who the man is. Not your personality but your past!

"Be in Christ": Attitude in the context of this and not Position!
You left something or a place to be in Christ. That's what He cares about, Your attitude towards the past. The past is passed away but are they truly passed away or just packed away for a while?

While developing this write-up,a quote strike my mind as usual, 
"Even the Best of us had a Past that didn't Last!". 
The best of us?? 
Yes those we regard as the best of us had a past also. 

You were expecting me to say "Even the worst of us" isn't it??. There are no worst nor best of us we only have attitudinal differences. God is no respecter of persons (Acts 10: 34), God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace to the humble (James4:6) its all about Attitude!

Still talking on the issue of Past, Word-web dictionary defines past as:

A. The Time that has elapsed.
Its elapsed, its passed away, its gone! But what's still your attitude towards it. Its gone but a lot of us won't just Let it go or let go.

The time has elapsed, its no more in existence - but how do you react to it now?
Like......... "If you leave the past in the past, it remains a Past-Tense, bring it into your life Now; it become a Past-Test!"
Its all about you, Your attitude!

B. A earlier period in someones life(especially one that they have reason to keep secret.)
I'll be breaking this into to parts:

i. A earlier period in someones life: it's always early, a move beyond the past can never be late..... when God said "Those that seek me early shall find me"(Proverbs 8:17), He was talking about your attitude not time. How? No time is ever too late to leave the past: Proverbs 8:17 reveals God saying; I love them that love me - before those tat seek me early will find me.

In your life Now, How early? How early do you forget the past and move on? How early do you forgive? How early do you live for your purpose? How early do you Live you life Now??
Remember you Life Now matters and you're more than now.

ii. Especially one that they have to keep secrets: Laughing out Loud, 'we've all got secrets' i know you are muttering ... Yes!
But all secret things belong to God, the ones He revealed belong to us (Deuteronomy 29:29)
God own those secrets they are not yours!
They are washed in His Son's blood.
Those things you call you secrets were only  revelations - They are how not to do it!
The major question here is: what do you learn from them?
This is what the world call Experience!! (Its all about Attitude again).

Change your attitude and thinking pattern, even those secrets of yours were revealed. They ain't secrets, they are revelations don't let them hurt you anymore!
Enjoy Now with the right set of attitude, You are complete in Him (Colossians 2:10).


Ecclesiastes 12:14King James Version (KJV)
14 For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.

Secrets got good and evil too... Yes!!
The deed is done, it is no more reversible.
Your attitude either keeps your path good or bad.
 It's up to You friends, Choose Life! Live Now to the Fullest!!

Best of the Day.

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.

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).

DID JOHN THE BAPTIST REALLY EAT INSECTS(LOCUST)?

His name was divinely given. It was to be “John” (Luke 1:13), which derives from a Hebrew term signifying “Jehovah is gracious.” He was known familiarly as “the Baptist” (bearing no relation to the modern sect), which simply means “an immerser, one who administers the rite of immersion” (Matthew. 3:1; 11:11; ..). The Jewish historian Josephus even refers to John by this designation (Antiquities 18.5.2).


The importance of John in the divine scheme of things probably is summed up best in the testimony of Jesus himself. “Among them that are born of women there has not arisen a greater than John the Baptist” (Matthew 11:11). Luke does say of John: “And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, and was in the deserts till the day of his showing unto Israel” (Luke 1:80). This desert (or deserted) area “stretches from Jerusalem and Bethlehem eastward some 20 miles down to the Jordan River and the Dead Sea.” It is “a barren region of rugged hills and valleys” (Earle, 30).

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.

ARE THERE TYPES OF FAST?

ARE THERE TYPES OF FAST? Fasting is the periodic abstention from food and in some cases even water; usually this is done during the daylight hours and many people fast for religious and health reasons. Fasting is an ancient practice that has assisted in attaining a state of spiritual consciousness that is more highly sensitive and elevated than under normal conditions.

Many people in the Bible fasted, including Moses, David, and Daniel in the Old Testament and Anna, Paul, and Jesus Christ in the New Testament. Many important figures in Christian history attested to fasting’s value, as do many Christians today.

The purpose of fasting is not to get God to respond as a genie in a bottle to grant our every wish. Fasting, whether it is regular, partial, absolute, or sexual, is a seeking after God’s heart, all other blessings and benefits being secondary to God Himself. This is what sets apart biblical fasting from other religious and cultural practices around the world.
