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.

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?

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?

THE MYSTERY OF HIS PRESENCE

Have you ever wondered why God will not honour the words of certain men and honour that of another?
Have you ever thought about something  like this or experienced this:
The Bible says .....You shall lay your hands upon the sick and they will recover(Mark 16:18b). You laid your hands and instead of a recovery, you found a discovery – that the man is not healed and the sickness/disease has back-fired. This can be painful......  until a young man comes and at the sound of his voice, the infirmity flees.
Has this ever bothered you?
Or that a man speaks into existence instantly what you have been begging God for with fasting and prayers.




I bring you a mystery today!
