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 MYSTERY OF HIS PRESENCE

Have you ever wondered why God will not honour the words of certain men and honour that of another?
Have you ever thought about something  like this or experienced this:
The Bible says .....You shall lay your hands upon the sick and they will recover(Mark 16:18b). You laid your hands and instead of a recovery, you found a discovery – that the man is not healed and the sickness/disease has back-fired. This can be painful......  until a young man comes and at the sound of his voice, the infirmity flees.
Has this ever bothered you?
Or that a man speaks into existence instantly what you have been begging God for with fasting and prayers.




I bring you a mystery today!

THE CONCEPT OF SHEKINAH

In order to help understand the specific manifestations of God's glory it is important to understand the frequently used term, Shekinah.

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 …

ARE YOU TRUE TO YOUR CALLING? | Pastor E.A Adeboye

There are many people in ministry today who are going off track because they are operating in areas wherein they were not called.  Some out of personal ambition, are operating in callings that are not theirs while others are innocently operating in the wrong callings out of concern.

Having a burden about something or seeing a need does not automatically translate to a calling!

“And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully.”                 2 Timothy 2:5 KJV
According to the above Bible verse, anyone who does things outside the will of the Master will be disqualified.

Everyone who God has called is scored by Him!

If what you are doing is outside God’s calling for your life, no matter how good you are in that calling or ministry, it is regarded as irrelevant.

Paul was greatly burdened by how the Jews were walking outside the will of God.

He kept preaching to them, yet they were persecuting him.

The greatest persecution he got were from the…
