HOW MUCH DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOU KNOW?

Good evening blog readers, how has been your day??

Today I want to discuss the final part of the series we have been discussing- Know more!
If you missed yesterday's edition on what do you know, read here.

How much you know the truth defines your degree of freedom. - Freedom in all ramifications of life; spiritually, financially, mentally, emotionally to mention but a few.

Let me just use this as a spiritual proof of what we have been discussing, do well to read along with me.

In the Garden of Eden, the serpent came up with what Adam and Eve knew but they failed even with how much they knew. They obviously knew the truth but they failed knowing more!!

Here's the dialogue:
Serpent: God said, ye shall not eat the tree of the garden?
Eve: We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden but of the fruit of the tree in the midst of the garden; God saith Ye shall nor eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.
Eve knew the truth so the serpent, but the enemy uses what you know against you and it's left for you to use the known to say No!

..... Lets continue:
Serpent: Ye shall not surely die. For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, your eyes shall be opened and ye shall be as God knowing good and evil.
What good and evil do they need to know other than  the eat this and don't eat this? The serpent knew more than Eve and he used her lack of information against her. 'My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge-Hosea 4:6a'.

Adam and Eve refused to know more, they never for once ask God some further questions. 'Ask and it shall be given'- Matt 7:7 is not for prayers alone, Informations are included!!

The woman could not argue any further because she's exhausted all she knew!! The next thing was the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise!!

How come?? 
When you are not fully informed on what you know... Every way seems the way!!
She took the fruit thereof and did eat and gave also unto her husband and he did eat.
After how many days of living in the garden?? After encounters with God every evening?? 
She just discovered all these false qualities about the tree.

You cannot be empty, it's either you know the truth that makes you free 
or 
the lies that keep you in bondage.

Dear reader, have you ever thought of what would have happened if Eve had an answer to the serpents' last statement?
How beautiful would it have been for us all if Adam knew enough to query Eve about the fruit?
They were limited by their limitations (in knowledge)

In how many ways/ how much have you limited yourself by your limits, by how much you know?
Our failure to know more makes us become limited by our limits also and Life is much more than(just) living by what you know with your mind.

Lastly, You are known for what you know and remembered for how much you know it!!

Adam and Eve are known for bringing the world into the state in which it is, Jesus Christ is known for bringing salvation into the world.
What will you be known for??

I therefore charge you today that you deeply thirst to know more to make our lives a better one and the world a better place.

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.

KAIROS: THE MYSTERY OF TIME

At the very beginning of Jesus’ earthly ministry  Jesus tells of a great opportunity: God’s kingdom is within our reach. To enter the kingdom, however, we must go through a process of REPENTANCE and BELIEF.

Mark 1:14‭-‬15 KJV‬‬: Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God,  And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.

Through this process we learn how:
-To lay down our lives
-Pick up the cross
-Follow Jesus into the kingdom

These three highlights aren’t steps but a circle that represents our Journey into the kingdom of God and time: the kairos moments in our lives which is the portal through which we enter into Kingdom living.

What is a Kairos Moment? 
A portal (access) through which we enter into dimensions of results. It is a moment and moments defines time just like seasons define destiny.
Eg: Jesus’ death on the cross was not a last-ditch effort on God’s  part …

BOLDNESS: the requirement for Servanthood.

While it is not scriptural to pray for faith,  you can ask God for boldness.
Very soon after the early church had received the baptism of the Holy Spirit, we see them petition for it.
-It takes Boldness to dispense the anointing  NOT just faith.
Faith is used to receive not dispense(create) in the operations of the anointing.Though the gift of faith manifests boldness too.

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).

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.
