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.

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…

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 …

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 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…
