WHAT ARE YOU MARRIED TO?

CL Blogs.
Marriage; of all the definitions of word-web dictionary, I will be going with this particular definition of it.
Marriage- A close and intimate union.  and Union defined; The state of making/ becoming one single unit, being joined, linked or united.

Isaiah 4:1- And in that day seven women shall take hold of one man, saying, We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel: only let us be called by thy name, to take away our reproach.

Has this scripture struck anything in your heart dear friend?
With a heavy heart I came to the discovery of the fact that marriage is not only about the union between a man and a woman alone.
It can be a union between a man and anything. Anything I repeat!
And this brings me to the point where without choiceIi have to ask you this morning even my married friends; what are you married to?

A. "And in that day, seven women shall take hold of one man"
What a ratio! I guess you are laughing out there, 7 things to 1 man, mathematicians I mean 7:1!
This is serious tho'. "And in that day... "; there is an appointed time for this to happen and the time is now. Now is the time you are getting married to that business, career, relationship, call and purpose, but this 7:1 thing should be confusing over there I guess?

Do not let your confusion give you directions.  

They will take hold of you because they know you do not belong to them.
All they are interested in is how they will take hold of you taking you away from your God given spouse- call, purpose, business, career, ministry etc..

I want you to always remember that not all that glitters is gold, 
be careful of what you are attracted to! 
Not all that comes your way is yours; some come to stress you an not to bless you.

Remember the scriptures told us that "he that findeth a wife, findeth a good thing,..." i.e they should not be taking hold of you, and you find a wife that is just 1 woman not 7 women.
Friends be careful what you are attracted to!


B. ".. saying, we will eat our bread, and wear our own our apparel"

Whatever doesn't stretch you cannot fetch you neither can it bless you. 

The way God ordered marriage; I Timothy 5:8 gives us a clue. "But if any provide not for his own, and especially for those of his own house, he hath denied faith, and is worse than an infidel"
You are to provide for what you married to, they are not to eat their own bread nor wear their own apparel.

Be careful of careers, relationships, purpose, business etc that don't grow you!

Unions are for fruits, but these ones are not interested in having fruits with you nor for you. They have their own bread and apparel to use; they are fulfilled! They are just there to waste your time and make you lose vision of the real thing.


C. " only let us be called by thy name, to take away our reproach."
Lastly, they give you a task no man can do. To take away reproach- only God can do this!
Is what you are married to threatening your peace? Do you feel used?

They have food to eat and clothing to use, they have the basic needs of life and at the same time have a reproach and that's the reason they came to you at that ratio 7:1.

Be on the look for relationships, businesses, carers and callings that gives you task you cannot fulfill!

I am not saying you won't face challenges nor grow but these ones want you to take their reproaches away! Your best will not be enough. Even the grace upon you will not be effective- all they do to you is make you feel empty!

When that business, ministry, career, job and relationship is demanding more than your God given abilities, I mean your best, then its not yours to marry. They not your spouse!

They tried fiddling with your mind, " only let us be called by thy name..." They know you might just overlook that and say its just my name nothing more!

No wonder the scriptures said "wisdom is the principal thing".
 I want you to be aware that every name has its fame/ shame its how you use the name that matters. 
What you get married to either bring out the fame/ shame.  
Remember whatever/ whoever you marry represents you! 

I will leave you with this; "when a man marries the wrong woman, the devil leaves him alone because he's already finished." Look before you leap, watch what you are married to.

Good morning,

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…
