GIVE AND LIVE.

Good morning blog family. How has been the week? 
Happy New month from CL BLogs- We proudly say it's a month of Abundance in Jesus Name.

Our last blog post on bible studies; the series - How much do you know? was intentionally spread over the week so we all could digest it better.

Today I'll be publishing a write-up with the topic:
Give and Live.
This is the first part of the topic expect the second part next week by God's grace.

To give: is to place into the hands/custody of.
To Live: is to have life and be alive. (Word web Dictionary.)

For a proper understanding 'To have life  is synonymous to being alive, other synonyms are: abide, breathe, draw breathe, remain, become alive'.
In other words to give and live is to give something into the hands/custody of someone and that thing has life(probably it was formerly dead)/ remain alive(Keeping its Life).
Giving to God alone attracts living, when you give to man you leave!

When you give a thing to God, two things even though they are synonymous happens to that thing:
(a) The thing has life (b) It remains alive.
Irrespective of the state of Life of that Marriage/relationship, Job/business/career, Home, Ministry/ passion it remains alive when you give it to GodWhat I'm saying is if you give a business in its right state of life i.e a business flourishing/doing well to God it remains alive and if its a business in its dead state it becomes alive!
Its just a pity a lot of us prefer giving it to man and leave than giving it to God. How do I mean?

John  5:40 And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.

The truth of the topic is this:
"Whatever you do not give to God, the devil uses against you!" 
and 
'No man can keep a thing from the devil's use, only God!'

Going with the scripture above, Jesus Christ discovered the people were not ready to come to Him. He was not asking them if they will not come but He knew they would/will not come even while He was here on earth. How much more now that we don't have Him around but His comforter??

In the course of this write-up an understanding was shed abroad my heart, a lot of times most of the things Christians complain about are the things they have refused to go to Christ for.
A lot of us have confused prayers with complaints/complaining.
"What most of us do is complain about the business, career, relationship, marriage, ministry but we do not pray about them, we do not give them to God!"
This is the reason Christ revealed to us in
John  16:24 Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.

You have not asked a thing in His name, you have only be complaining!
Give and Live.....
My dear give it to God in prayers.

You have any burden on your heart you want us to pray with you about do not hesitate to reach us via the email on the blog.... The comment box awaits your testimony in Jesus Name.
You have not even given your life to Jesus? How do you give that situation to Him? I encourage you today to make up your mind and reach us also via the mail so we path you to the Lord.
The Lord bless you all!

Till next week same day.
I Love you,

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!

ARE YOU TRUE TO YOUR CALLING? | Pastor E.A Adeboye

There are many people in ministry today who are going off track because they are operating in areas wherein they were not called.  Some out of personal ambition, are operating in callings that are not theirs while others are innocently operating in the wrong callings out of concern.

Having a burden about something or seeing a need does not automatically translate to a calling!

“And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully.”                 2 Timothy 2:5 KJV
According to the above Bible verse, anyone who does things outside the will of the Master will be disqualified.

Everyone who God has called is scored by Him!

If what you are doing is outside God’s calling for your life, no matter how good you are in that calling or ministry, it is regarded as irrelevant.

Paul was greatly burdened by how the Jews were walking outside the will of God.

He kept preaching to them, yet they were persecuting him.

The greatest persecution he got were from the…

THE RELEVANCE OF KINGDOM RELATIONSHIPS

When you have relationship on the earth realm than in the spirit realm, you will be LONELY. If you have more relationship in the spirit realm than in the earth realm; you will be ALONE.

Being ALONE is not equal to being LONELY!
