THINGS YOU NEED IN 2016- KNOW YOURSELF I - THE IMAGE.

1 John  4:6 We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

Yesterday we discussed about Knowing Him and I bless God on how he helped us understand Him the more and how far He has helped us interpret His words.
Genesis  1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
I want to outline this topic into 3:
(a) You are in the image of God
(b) You are after His likeness
(c) You have dominion.
A. The Image of God


Genesis  1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

I made use of this verse of the scripture intentionally to clear the mentality that women being created out of men equals a limit in their abilities, the truth remains every man a head of the woman but the woman has the fullness of God also.
That's the reason God called her a help meet. She can offer what a man needs. So to all my female blog readers- You are in His image! All God can do you can do too.
If you look back in verse 26; God said "lets make man in our image". Our image here refers to the trinity with the Godhead intention, i.e you have the nature of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy spirit.
'I want you to come to the realization that you have the nature of the Trinity, you do not share the nature.'
God in Trinity, Men in Diversity.- Oluwatobi Oshunbiyi

That's the reason we are called gods; we are sons of God.(Psalms 82:6), Jesus called us friends- He said greater works than He did we shall do if we believe.(John14:12). No wonder He came to the world to die for all sinners so that His nature will not be found in  hell.

The Holy spirit is our comforter- Word-web dictionary defines a comforter as a person who reduces the intensity (e.g. of fears) and calm and pacifies.

You only comfort who you know and when you know what is happening in the person's life. 

'The Holy spirit is never our sympathizer as English language might say A Comforter= Sympathizer.
In the course of writing this up, the Holy spirit gave me a clearer view/ interpretation of who we are. He told me in my ears we are images of Him entrusted with the task of carrying out what God should have always visited the earth to do

No wonder after He created Adam and Eve, He told us to be fruitful and multiply.
Adam and Eve carried out the creation of Cain and Abel that God should have done by visiting the earth.
Ye are gods; Gods image.

How much do you use your God deposited ability?
God gave us brains and that Physique so He could rest. How do you make use of it?
You have the solution inside of you. You are your solution! You are all you need.
Let me dwell more on this a bit.

Elijah in I kings 18:21-40 had some issues to be clarified with the prophets of Baal, in verses 32-38 Elijah prepared 12 stones, built an altar, made a trench about the altar, put woods in order, and filled it up with 12 barrels of water. It was after this he prayed/ called unto God and fire came down.
Elijah used his brain and physique, he made use of his God-given image before he called on God. Elijah had prepared what God will burn.

Most of us don't want to manifest as the image of God at all, we want God to get the stones, make the altar, arrange the woods and still send down the fire! No God won't do that, He awaits you to know yourself enough as an image of Him.
Start using your God given deposits as from date.
I hope you have a nice day and do not recover from the consciousness of you being in the image of God.

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)

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?
