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 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 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 …

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…

SPIRITUAL INTERACTION 3

1 Corinthians 2:4-5
[4]And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:
[5]That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.

...the demonstration of the Spirit (fellowship) and of power (partnership)!
You become an able man(a man of the spirit) when you have these two. When you truly pay the price for fellowship, you cannot but experience partnership.

Download Spiritual Interaction 1 & 2 to understand fellowship and the levels in Intimacy(Koinonia)
Partnership is the ministry of the spirit not the ministry of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is a Spirit and that makes Him part of the ministry of the spirit.

It is true that the Holy Spirit is the governor of all spirits but there are other spirits you will have to participate with to produce results. There are rankings in the spirit and spirits don't break their ranks!

Spiritual Interaction has to do with interaction with s…
