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!!!

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…

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…

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…

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 …
