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.

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!

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…

GOD'S UNIVERSAL AGENDA: THE EVERLASTING KINGDOM.

There is a kingdom which transcend beyond kingdoms that are bound by time, which is ruled by vanity. This Kingdom is void of human corruption, absent of pain and hatred. This Kingdom is eternal and sovereign.
It is known as the Kingdom of God.

THE 21ST CENTURY MIRACLE

Isaiah 8:17-18
[17]And I will wait upon the LORD, that hideth his face from the house of Jacob, and I will look for him.
[18]Behold, I and the children whom the LORD hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the LORD of hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion.


God hides himself from a generation that they may seek Him. And only those that seek Him in a generation finds Him. These ones become Signs(Systems of Reference) and do Wonders!
It is only those that know(have found) their God that are: Strong(a sign)and do Exploits(Wonders)!


Thus, you are the miracle your Generation needs!

You are a sign for signs; you're supernatural.
You are a sign for wonders; you're a miracle.
You are for signs and wonders.
But do you know the miracle this century needs?


As a miracle for you to happen, you have to understand the difference between signs, wonders and miracles. The illustration attached above explains this.

Having seen thus;
1. Do not confuse the signs for all believers as mi…
