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.

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 …

BOLDNESS: the requirement for Servanthood.

While it is not scriptural to pray for faith,  you can ask God for boldness.
Very soon after the early church had received the baptism of the Holy Spirit, we see them petition for it.
-It takes Boldness to dispense the anointing  NOT just faith.
Faith is used to receive not dispense(create) in the operations of the anointing.Though the gift of faith manifests boldness too.

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.
