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.

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…

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 …

THE MINISTRIES OF MEN 2

Romans 11:29
[29] For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance. 

Notice the word "GIFTS" here is plural, while the word "CALLING" being singular.
There is only one calling!
There is no higher or lesser call than the other.

Although, this does not disregard the fact that there are some people specially reserved and set in the body as offices. This calling is to grow into the stature of the Christ.  It was the Lord who went down beyond and gave gifts unto men.

Remember, the Law of giving;
YOU CAN NOT GIVE WHAT YOU DO NOT HAVE!
And so, Christ himself being the embodiment of the 5-fold gave of himself. In following Christ, as you keep growing through into the template of the Christ - in maturity and stature, you will begin to experience the 5-fold (apostolic, prophetic, evangelical, pastoral, and teaching) ministry in your life.

The gifts are for all to profit withal, it is not the inheritance of any man.
We do not just have gift; we are all gifts and on the b…

SPIRITUAL INTERACTION 3

1 Corinthians 2:4-5
[4]And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:
[5]That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.

...the demonstration of the Spirit (fellowship) and of power (partnership)!
You become an able man(a man of the spirit) when you have these two. When you truly pay the price for fellowship, you cannot but experience partnership.

Download Spiritual Interaction 1 & 2 to understand fellowship and the levels in Intimacy(Koinonia)
Partnership is the ministry of the spirit not the ministry of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is a Spirit and that makes Him part of the ministry of the spirit.

It is true that the Holy Spirit is the governor of all spirits but there are other spirits you will have to participate with to produce results. There are rankings in the spirit and spirits don't break their ranks!

Spiritual Interaction has to do with interaction with s…
