WHAT DO I DO WITH THE PAST?

DON'T JUST LEAVE THE PAST, LIVE THE PAST TOO!!

Today's sub-topic is sounding like a quote right? It is not just sounding.. it is a quote.
It is what we discussing.


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.

What really becomes new?
Definitely it is the past.
The past is recycled! Its washed just as you have been re-gene(Regeneration)
I mean washed in His precious blood.

After all, we all know recycled products are always of value - and these products are not of lesser value! So you do not just leave it, you live it too.

You are a new creature, born of God, with the right set of attitude now. The old things are passed away, truly they are gone; the pain is gone but the memories can't be erased that's if you will be real. You do not live the pain anymore, but you live the memories. i.e
You leave the pain and live the memories.

I wish above all to explain the topic at hand with this small illustration, I term it:  
The Parable of the Cloth. 
Some of my friends out there would be asking what is happening to me today?
Back to my parable, A man's life is like a cloth/ clothing, in the course of use its gets soiled by all kind of dirt you can think of (we call those dirt Past!!). The Clothing is dirty and ugly, and it is the discovery of this that calls for a wash. After the wash it becomes new.
How?

'You do not die cos you have had some past friends'
... just like you won't burn the linen cos it is dirty. After the cleansing- old things are passed away, the laundry process is over; the soaking, washing, draining, spreading and ironing.
All things are become new!!

There might be times in a man's life when the Now can't be differentiated from the Past, that's just the process, relax and enjoy it. 
It's a process of preparation for the future, yes its not easy.. You'll be stretched. 

Do always remember to live those moments because:

Psalm 30:5King James Version (KJV)
For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.

Permit me digress a bit.... The morning is a process just like the past, the Morning is defined as a time after midnight and before mid-day, of which sometimes 04:00 - 05:00 a.m looks like 09:00- 11:00p.m. Your attitude matters again here because you cannot change the time/order of the day.
You can only choose how to live it.  - You can choose to live the morning like the night believing its still the weeping hours OR get up with Joy knowing it might still be dark out there but its morning and Joy has come.

Do not let the process keep you in the dark. Just like i said in the last post; Live the Now of your Life.
Live those things you regard secrets. Live those secrets with the right set of attitudes; God will judge all secrets let yours be good( Ecclesiastes 12:14).

I will not leave without dropping this shocker; God even our God is got secrets!!

Psalm 25:14King James Version (KJV)
14 The secret of the Lord is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant.

Friends, if God reveals His secrets with His people then what is stopping you?
Live your past my dear..., let it be a source of lesson and blessing to others and He will show you His covenant.

Shalom!!!

MANIPULATION

Manipulation is a strong word or subject in this generation yet we sit and watch the degeneration it causes to our generation everyday and in our everyday situation.
-To manipulate is to negotiate, control or influence for one’s advantage.
It’s all about using people to achieve the desired outcome.
Manipulation is more than being selfish or being self-centred. It is self-seeking!

KAIROS: THE MYSTERY OF TIME

At the very beginning of Jesus’ earthly ministry  Jesus tells of a great opportunity: God’s kingdom is within our reach. To enter the kingdom, however, we must go through a process of REPENTANCE and BELIEF.

Mark 1:14‭-‬15 KJV‬‬: Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God,  And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.

Through this process we learn how:
-To lay down our lives
-Pick up the cross
-Follow Jesus into the kingdom

These three highlights aren’t steps but a circle that represents our Journey into the kingdom of God and time: the kairos moments in our lives which is the portal through which we enter into Kingdom living.

What is a Kairos Moment? 
A portal (access) through which we enter into dimensions of results. It is a moment and moments defines time just like seasons define destiny.
Eg: Jesus’ death on the cross was not a last-ditch effort on God’s  part …

BOLDNESS: the requirement for Servanthood.

While it is not scriptural to pray for faith,  you can ask God for boldness.
Very soon after the early church had received the baptism of the Holy Spirit, we see them petition for it.
-It takes Boldness to dispense the anointing  NOT just faith.
Faith is used to receive not dispense(create) in the operations of the anointing.Though the gift of faith manifests boldness too.
