WHAT ASK THOU?

Good day friend, I got this topic on the 31st of December, 2015 at exactly 11:23a.m and I intended publishing it on the first days of the year but I was not opportuned to do so. 
I strongly believe it's for a reason and at this very minute, hour and day it will bless your soul.

What ask thou?

Matthew  7:7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
John  16:24 Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.
 These are the words of Jesus Christ to you and I in the scriptures, and I want to believe that's the understanding you have got as you read this post along with me.

A lot of us wrote out some things we want to achieve in the year 2016 with the help of God, we the 'spiri-Nigerians' call it 'prayer requests' and I know by now the Heavens are full of Over 6 billion people requests that will be attended to by God's grace. For my friends out there that does not believe in God through Jesus Christ, I know you wrote out plans and goals called New year resolutions to be achieved in 2016. The truth is you can't achieve them on your own and you need Jesus Christ! 
I hope you don't wait till 2017 for you to believe it's not by power nor by might..Zechariah 4:6 KJV, a short prayer asking Jesus to come into your Life and save you will definitely give 2016 to you.

I Samuel 12:1-12.
In the passage above; the Israelite in their ancient history looked for a political leadership through divinely- empowered individuals, judges, prophets and kings. Different types of leaders were raised up at various stages in Israel's national development to fulfill definite roles at specific times. They had Moses and Joshua and it was Samuel's' turn, it was time the Israelite were asking for the first king-Saul.

Verses 1-4: In these verses, Samuel was reaffirming his roles if well played and identity not destroyed. He was giving his farewell speech  He was set to give to the people what they wanted- A king.

Verses 6-11: Samuel reminded the Israelite of what they had gone through, where they were coming from. He reminded them of their Fathers and how they journeyed. How they forgot the Lord their God, how God sold them into the hands of their enemies. He reminded them how they cried to Lord, knowing they have sinned and forsaken the Lord, and how God sent his own people and delivered them out of the hands of their enemies and they dwelled safe.

Verse 12: Now there's problem again, they saw that Nahash(the King) and children of Ammon came against them, and they said "Nay: but a king shall reign over us; - when the LORD GOD was their king."(KJV)

I think at this point, the question should change from what ask thou? To what choose thou over God?

The Israelite asked for a king when God himself had been their King and Prophet Samuel just a representative of God.
Hope you have not asked what will make God's representatives over your life bid farewell?(verse 1-4).
Hope you can remember how far God had brought you? How he has refused to forsake you and hand you over to the will of your enemies? 
Hope you can remember how many times He has forgiven you in these 7-8 days of the new year? Hope you can remember how he has directed you? How he has ordered your steps??

Now that we are in the New year, With the Ammonites you saw coming hope in the resolutions, requests and all you have asked,hope you have not in any way allowed your wants, needs, the economy, the environment, family etc influence what you asked? 
Hope you have not asked for a replacement of God in your life? 
Hope you have not asked for another Lordship over His reign in your Life? 
Hope you have not asked for things that will take you away from God?
 
These questions I will leave for you to answer!

Our prayers and request for you is that you do not lose His presence over anything.

If you have asked wrongly;
Romans  8:26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

We know not what we should pray for...... Just take your time now and ask the Spirit itself to intercede for you

Have a nice year ahead.

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…
