LASTING SUCCESS II.

Why many don't have lasting success?
Happy new week blog readers, welcome to this week's edition of Monday's Digest.
Last week we discussed the first reason why many don't have lasting success- Comfort Zone. If you missed it you can get here.
Today we'll be talking on the second reason why many don't have lasting success and that is:
UNFAITHFULNESS.
Unfaithfulness is the quality of being unfaithful and being unfaithful is not being true to duty, obligations and promises. (Word-web Dictionary)

Unfaithfulness is also defined as a quality by wordweb which implies that every of our attitude counts and we can weigh our success based on them.
Quality is an essential and distinguishing attribute of something or someone and that means unfaithfulness is one.

What are you known for? 
What distinguishes you from others??

A lot of us complain of not having lasting success but we have one or two qualities in our lives that cannot hold unto success and one of such is unfaithfulness.

Being unfaithful is being untrue to duty, obligations and promises.
How true are you to duty?
How true are you to jobs you are obligated to do?
How true are you to your promises?
Do you keep agreements?
Are you true to people or you enjoy playing smart on them??

All these negative acts and attitudes unfaithfulness births makes you reduce in your pursuit of excellence thereby causing a fall from success.

Success usually comes to those who are too busy looking for it -Henry David Thoreau
It does not come to the Unfaithful!!

Some people do not have lasting success because they won some multi-billion Naira/Dollar projects, they got their determined job position, they have been promoted to the position they have been dreaming of and all they can do now is Relax- become Unfaithful!!

The higher you go on the Ladder of success, the higher you should grow in your faithfulness.

Faithfulness is one of the ingredients that keep success, it is being steadfast in affection or allegiance.
It is the zeal you applied when you were hunting the job, the zeal you had when you started up the business that can keep you in success
.
Unfaithfulness is a quality in you that speaks louder than your Curriculum Vitae/ Résumé.

Your skills, certifications and qualifications (Academic) will get you a job truly but your qualities keep you in the job and in success.- Oluwatobiloba Oshunbiyi

The  number one test of your faithfulness to success and lasting in success is how early you get to work(Smiling).

See you next week.

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 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…

THE MINISTRIES OF MEN 2

Romans 11:29
[29] For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance. 

Notice the word "GIFTS" here is plural, while the word "CALLING" being singular.
There is only one calling!
There is no higher or lesser call than the other.

Although, this does not disregard the fact that there are some people specially reserved and set in the body as offices. This calling is to grow into the stature of the Christ.  It was the Lord who went down beyond and gave gifts unto men.

Remember, the Law of giving;
YOU CAN NOT GIVE WHAT YOU DO NOT HAVE!
And so, Christ himself being the embodiment of the 5-fold gave of himself. In following Christ, as you keep growing through into the template of the Christ - in maturity and stature, you will begin to experience the 5-fold (apostolic, prophetic, evangelical, pastoral, and teaching) ministry in your life.

The gifts are for all to profit withal, it is not the inheritance of any man.
We do not just have gift; we are all gifts and on the b…

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 …

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 …
