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.

DID JOHN THE BAPTIST REALLY EAT INSECTS(LOCUST)?

His name was divinely given. It was to be “John” (Luke 1:13), which derives from a Hebrew term signifying “Jehovah is gracious.” He was known familiarly as “the Baptist” (bearing no relation to the modern sect), which simply means “an immerser, one who administers the rite of immersion” (Matthew. 3:1; 11:11; ..). The Jewish historian Josephus even refers to John by this designation (Antiquities 18.5.2).


The importance of John in the divine scheme of things probably is summed up best in the testimony of Jesus himself. “Among them that are born of women there has not arisen a greater than John the Baptist” (Matthew 11:11). Luke does say of John: “And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, and was in the deserts till the day of his showing unto Israel” (Luke 1:80). This desert (or deserted) area “stretches from Jerusalem and Bethlehem eastward some 20 miles down to the Jordan River and the Dead Sea.” It is “a barren region of rugged hills and valleys” (Earle, 30).

HOW COME THAT IDIOT IS RICH AND I AM NOT?

Here is why..,
That idiot is had an encounter with the spirit realm, an encounter with the Spirit of God not mammon. He's firstly  sure who is master is as this is the secret to a lasting financial life and destiny.

.....for it is in the office of God by His Spirit to give you the power to make wealth (Deuteronomy 8:18 emphasis added) but you have to remember Him(God).

SERVANTHOOD

2 Peter 1:1 – Simon Peter,  a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ.

The Apostle Peter’s first letter was a message of encouragement, instruction and admonition to the Christians who were scattered throughout Asia minor.

Even though he was part of Jesus' inner circle and was a pillar in the early church , he opens his letter by calling himself a servant.

This shows you that it doesn’t matter how long you have been a Christian or how mightily the Lord used to,  you are always a servant.

ARE THERE TYPES OF FAST?

ARE THERE TYPES OF FAST? Fasting is the periodic abstention from food and in some cases even water; usually this is done during the daylight hours and many people fast for religious and health reasons. Fasting is an ancient practice that has assisted in attaining a state of spiritual consciousness that is more highly sensitive and elevated than under normal conditions.

Many people in the Bible fasted, including Moses, David, and Daniel in the Old Testament and Anna, Paul, and Jesus Christ in the New Testament. Many important figures in Christian history attested to fasting’s value, as do many Christians today.

The purpose of fasting is not to get God to respond as a genie in a bottle to grant our every wish. Fasting, whether it is regular, partial, absolute, or sexual, is a seeking after God’s heart, all other blessings and benefits being secondary to God Himself. This is what sets apart biblical fasting from other religious and cultural practices around the world.
