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.

DO NOT SEEK A SIGN!

2 KINGS 3:17 KJV For thus saith the LORD, Ye shall not see wind, neither shall ye see rain; yet that valley shall be filled with water, that ye may drink, both ye, and your cattle, and your beasts.

God's word to us is relevance and guiding light as to how God will have it be is that we do not seek a sign for this month's wonder!

1 Corinthians 1:22  For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom.

But,
Ye are Christ! (1 Corinthians 3:23)

You are the sign of the wonder, you are the miracle says the Lord.

Most  supernatural operation around our life's this month will not call for attention like the bones in the valley! (Ezekiel 37)

Therefore Be still and known that I am God (Psalm 46: 12)

Welcome to March!









TERRITORIAL RELEVANCE

The Garden of Eden in Genesis is not just a Story or History. It is our life to be lived.
- It is the system of God for Territorial Relevance cum Global Relevance!

The garden was God's first gift to the unfallen man(Adam) and also, every redeemed man.

 Though, after the fall of the man; thus the corruption of the earth, the system changed.

Joel 2:3
[3]A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them.

The system changed to men going through The Wilderness experience first, before The Garden experience then True RELEVANCE!
- John the Baptist being the system, Jesus being the standard. You?

DATING - WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS

Dating and Dates ( - going on dates) are two different things.
Dates are events where an individual goes out to meet people and know people. eg. A father and daughter going on a date.

Dating is form of romantic courtship typically between two individuals with the aim of assessing the other's suitability as a partner in an intimate relationship or as a spouse.
It is going on with someone intentionally checking to know if you have compatibility (emotionally, sexually, etc) with him/her with no boundaries, specificity or exclusivity!

The concept of dating is not Kingdom-oriented. There's no such things as "Christian Dating".
What then do we do instead of dating?
Do you know how to find your wife without dating?
Do you know how to found by your husband without dating?
