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.

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…
