WISE MEN STILL SEEK HIM

With series of things to write and share with you on my mind today, I had to succumb to the grace of the day. I saw the need to write  on a topic that is affiliated to the birth of Christ.
Some of my friends out there asked some questions all through yesterday, is December 25 really the birth date of Jesus Christ? 
The whole story about Christmas spelt as X-Mas and all. ...
I have come to a conclusion within myself that; the date doesn't matter nor the way you spell it but what you do with it!
What do you do with your Christmas?
Do you in any way seek him or all you do is visit Him- Which is just this Christmas celebrations; eating and drinking, arguing about his date of birth, argue about how it was spelt and all sort of activities?

 I want you to remember the kingdom of God is not for food and drink but righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy-ghost! Anyways, Wise men still seek Him! 
  • Thank God for the gift of His son;the grace to fight our battles
  • Thank God He is being celebrated; He has made the last few days of the year really worth it and not just the beginning. 
  • Thank God the Scriptures spelt Him Christ and not 'X'; so we can boldly write- Christmas and not Xmas! 
  • Thank God for the great deal of meal, which are mostly chicken dishes!.... Laughing i guess'
  • Thank God for the gift of Life, We have the Covenant of Life!
Matthew 2: 1-2, 11-15.
Today's discussion will be in points and i want you to follow me closely
The Bible did not say there were only 3 wise men, this made me know there are still many wise men; you and I inclusive.

No one seeks Him until He seeks them:
Even the wise men had a call from Him - The Star!(Numbers 24:17).
Hope you can see His glory or just the miracles? What is really drawing you to Him? What do you seek?

The wise men were informed!:
They were informed about the prophesy in Numbers 24:17.  This made me believe they were not on a visit but on a spiritual journey! Are you on a journey with Christ or you just pay him Christmas visit?

They knew what they were looking for.
The king of the Jews! They made good use of the information they had gotten above. What information do you have not only about Christ but what you even are in Christ?

They brought Him gifts-
when the purpose of a thing is not known, abuse is inevitable.
They knew the purpose of their visit- to worship the king!
Your Life is God's gift to you, how you use it is your gift back to him! How do you use your life? 
How do you live it? What gift are you bringing him?

They worshiped-
In verse 2 they told Herod they wanted to worship Him and in verse 11; on seeing Him they worshiped Him. They fell down and worshiped him.
Its amazing that these heathen astrologers had enough insight to recognize the glory of the one whom they find. Here we are 2000 years later, with all the light we have been given we still have people who are incapable of seeing who He really is!

They obeyed Him- 
The highest form of respect to God. They did acknowledge Him! 
God warned them in a dream that they were also in danger and they were to return to their homeland by a different route, they did heed! They are truly wise! How much do you obey him? 
How much do you obey His commandments, instructions and all??

After they visited Jesus- they were in trouble. The world is full of troubles, hope they don't turn you disobedient?
Wise men still turn their ears toward Heaven! John 16:13.
Our duty is to listen to his voice and then respond in obedience when He reveals His will to us!

I want to encourage you to do more than celebrate Christmas and celebrate the Christ-in-the-mass! 
No one cometh unto Him and returns the same way. Even the wise 'departed into their own country another way'. That's the power of Grace and His salvation!
God sent His word to the wise men to flee from King Herod to avoid his wrath, So is He sending out warning to all humanity. He tells us that death is coming and that beyond that, there is a place called Hell!

I charge you today to give him a visit, fall at His feet and make your ways straights! 
Give Him your gift- your Life! Then we all have the Star, a Christ- in-the-mass!

I love you so much and Merry Christmas.

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?
