THINGS YOU NEED IN 2016 - POWER.

Good day friends, I have been naming the topics for this year 'things you need in 2016' and this topic is not going to be an exception.
I want to over-emphasis the topic so I'm starting off with the blog title:Power!

Going trough the definitions of power via word-web offline dictionary, I came across ten different meaning and I have carefully selected three meanings to work with for the purpose of this post.

Below I highlight the meanings:
1. Possession of controlling influence
2. (Physics) the rate of doing work
3. Physical Strength
I will be explaining power in this three dimensions and i pray it blesses you.

Power will always remain power, its how you channel it that matters and i want you to know that- power when not properly channeled is lethal.

Power either makes you or mare you!

1. Possession of controlling influence:
To possess is to have ownership.
 Power is owned not sold! I am saying you don't buy power it is synonymous to dominion.
God has always been interested in giving power to His own that's the reason He gave man dominion first over every other things (Genesis 1:26).

Acts  10:38 How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.

I would have loved to write this topic up outside the use of scriptures  but it's of the highest importance to let you know 'even our Lord Jesus was anointed by God with Holy ghost and Power'.

God can give all of us Power truly but the holy ghost is what drives it.

The essence of this sub-post is to let us all know what it means to possess a controlling influence. When you have this- You have posses the ability to control(creatures) and determine(events).

'Power turn men into Events Manager.'

Acts  1:8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you:
This attribute only comes when you receive power i.e The Holy spirit is the one that activates dominion in a man and gives power.
Power gives the ability to affect persons and events and that defines influence!

Elijah stopped rain from falling and later bought down rain.
Joshua seized the day- he held the sun from setting.
Elijah called fire down.
Jesus woke dead Lazarus, He even turned water to wine.

What have you done with the little inside of you? 
There's a miracle no minister of God can pray for you; the use of power.

As a child of God, how much do you possess a controlling influence in your family, educational institutions, career, community, fellowships and even the church/ fold where you belong.


2. The rate to do work:

James  2:26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.

Faith is one of the gifts of the holy spirit (I Corinthians 12:9) and the scripture says it is dead without work(power-the rate to do work.) i.e the Gifts of the holy spirit are dead without the power of the holy spirit.
No wonder God anointed Jesus Christ with the holy spirit- His fruits, gifts and power!

Your gifts are not enough, you need power!
The power of God is the glory of God, it's God's spirit at work. This same power is the rate at which God's children work- Dominate!

Yes you have faith but at what rate do you work
 You truly are talented and gifted but at what rate do you work- dominate?

Rate- relative speed of progress/change. At what speed do you operate?
As a child of God, you are to be the head and not the tail, you are to operate at the speed of God. You are to progress at the speed of God in your career, business and purpose. We need power to fulfill destiny i.e do the work of destiny.

You need to understand now that you are the created not the creator so you need power- His rate of doing work to do what you are made to do.

How you grow also affects your rate of doing work and your rate of work determines your possession of controlling influence. Remember I  said earlier power remains power, its how you channel it that matters.


3. Physical Strength:
I will personally define this as the strength of you(Christ in you the hope of glory) in the physical. The other forms of power earlier spoken of are based on this. It's all about how you grow!
Do you emit any glory at all? Jesus did! Not because he was God but because He was man.

God doesn't grow, man does.

Luke  2:52 And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.

You increase in wisdom and power (stature; physical strength) i.e they work together. When you have wisdom and power, then you find favour with God and men through your physical strength!

When you operate power via your physical strength, God will be more pleased with you everyday of your life.

Check through your life are, you growing wiser and stronger? Is God and other men pleased with you??

Samson a man in the scriptures demonstrated the power of God via his physical strength but not through his times with Delilah (Smiling).............

This is the main reason it's best for young Christians to avoid fornication because power when not channeled properly is lethal. Let's all learn from Samson.

When you grow outside of God, you go outside of God!
No wonder the scripture said our bodies are the temples of God(God's strength in the physical)!!

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.

HOW COME THAT IDIOT IS RICH AND I AM NOT?

Here is why..,
That idiot is had an encounter with the spirit realm, an encounter with the Spirit of God not mammon. He's firstly  sure who is master is as this is the secret to a lasting financial life and destiny.

.....for it is in the office of God by His Spirit to give you the power to make wealth (Deuteronomy 8:18 emphasis added) but you have to remember Him(God).

DID JOHN THE BAPTIST REALLY EAT INSECTS(LOCUST)?

His name was divinely given. It was to be “John” (Luke 1:13), which derives from a Hebrew term signifying “Jehovah is gracious.” He was known familiarly as “the Baptist” (bearing no relation to the modern sect), which simply means “an immerser, one who administers the rite of immersion” (Matthew. 3:1; 11:11; ..). The Jewish historian Josephus even refers to John by this designation (Antiquities 18.5.2).


The importance of John in the divine scheme of things probably is summed up best in the testimony of Jesus himself. “Among them that are born of women there has not arisen a greater than John the Baptist” (Matthew 11:11). Luke does say of John: “And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, and was in the deserts till the day of his showing unto Israel” (Luke 1:80). This desert (or deserted) area “stretches from Jerusalem and Bethlehem eastward some 20 miles down to the Jordan River and the Dead Sea.” It is “a barren region of rugged hills and valleys” (Earle, 30).

SERVANTHOOD

2 Peter 1:1 – Simon Peter,  a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ.

The Apostle Peter’s first letter was a message of encouragement, instruction and admonition to the Christians who were scattered throughout Asia minor.

Even though he was part of Jesus' inner circle and was a pillar in the early church , he opens his letter by calling himself a servant.

This shows you that it doesn’t matter how long you have been a Christian or how mightily the Lord used to,  you are always a servant.

ARE THERE TYPES OF FAST?

ARE THERE TYPES OF FAST? Fasting is the periodic abstention from food and in some cases even water; usually this is done during the daylight hours and many people fast for religious and health reasons. Fasting is an ancient practice that has assisted in attaining a state of spiritual consciousness that is more highly sensitive and elevated than under normal conditions.

Many people in the Bible fasted, including Moses, David, and Daniel in the Old Testament and Anna, Paul, and Jesus Christ in the New Testament. Many important figures in Christian history attested to fasting’s value, as do many Christians today.

The purpose of fasting is not to get God to respond as a genie in a bottle to grant our every wish. Fasting, whether it is regular, partial, absolute, or sexual, is a seeking after God’s heart, all other blessings and benefits being secondary to God Himself. This is what sets apart biblical fasting from other religious and cultural practices around the world.
