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.

IS HEAVEN THE THRONE OF GOD?

Psalm 11:4: The Lord is in His holy temple; the LORD's throne IS IN Heaven; His eyes behold, His eyelids test the sons of men.

This verse separate the Lord's throne from Heaven but opens our eyes to an operation; a modus - operandi. The Lord's throne IS IN HEAVEN!

An Estate as a case study!
I do not live in an Estate; I currently dwell in the cave adullam as we speak but you'd hear a couple of person say "I live in Harmony Estate" as an example but this individual's house is literally "in" [inside] the Estate. For example; House #24, Harmony Estate...

It is on this basis I exclaimed "Heaven is not God's throne!" in the message THE MYSTERY CALLED MAN.

There is Heaven and God has a throne!
I stand today boldly that God has a literal throne, but He created Heaven someday and thus, the throne existed before Heaven.

After the creation of the Heaven and the Earth...
The Heavens by the activity of men causes the throne of God to be operate…

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 …

SHOULD WOMEN COVER THEIR HAIRS IN CHURCH?

It is common practice for some women to cover their heads when they go to church. Others cover their heads when praying. Since 1 Corinthians 11:4-6 states that women should cover their heads when praying, several questions arise:
Did the apostle Paul refer to a cultural situation where women wore a head covering? Should women cover their hairs and if so, with what?                                                                  Was Paul addressing the situation of women praying or prophesying in the church or outside the church?1 Corinthians 11:4-5 states that all women should cover HEADS not HAIR when praying!

To understand this better, Download the Podcast:  Should Women Cover their Hairs in Church 
Meaning of the Words “Head” and “Uncovered”
1 Corinthians 11:4-6 appears to some to teach that women should wear a scarf or something else on their heads. However, the question is where?

Every man who has something on his head while praying or prophesying disgraces his head. But every woman…

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…
