IT'S NEVER WORTH A LIE.

Good day blog family, I welcome you to this week's biblical exposition.

Today's blogspot will solely be an interpretation of a passage in the scriptures and over here I'm using the KJV.
Genesis 26:1-14.

Its a passage about a man called Isaac, the firstborn of us all. The lie he told to protect Rebekah his wife and the consequences.

The aim of this study is to apply the lesson learnt from the passage in our everyday life and help us discover our Life is never worth a Life.
Nothing in your life as a child of God is worth a lie irrespective of the reason's you're most tempted to lie.

Lie(according to wordweb): A statement that deviates from or perverts the truth.

Let me biblically breakdown the above definition.
A  lie is a statement that deviates from/perverts the truth(Jesus Christ).
Jesus Christ is the truth, way and life. (John14:6a).
Therefore a lie is a statement(a communication be it oral/written) that deviates(turn aside) or turn away from the truth.

What statement are you uttering? What is your life communicating to the world?

Anytime you communicate orally/written wise and turn away/aside from the truth(Jesus Christ) then you turn to the lie(Devil)- the father of all lies/liars (John 8:44 Kjv) and I'll like to remind you that our lives were called from on the platform of truth, your destiny is written on the truth therefore it takes only the truth to accomplish it.
When we tell lies we turn away from the scripts of our lives and start acting what was not intended by the author- God.
No wonder the scriptures we read earlier called Jesus- the truth, the way and life because everything was conceived in truth and only the true to the truth walks the way that leads to life.

In summary to lie is to die!

We'll discuss three out of the nuggets for this post and the rest will be discussed next week.
Back to Genesis 26:1-14.

Verse 1: There was famine in the land beside the famine that was in the day's of Abraham(Isaac's father).

#1. There can always be repetitions of situations in our lives. We are sometimes faced with the battles our father's fought and mostly challenges of life similar to the ones our parents went through show up in our lives.
The only way out is not always a lie.
As much as the blessings of generations are passed down so the curses.

Verse 2: The Lord appeared unto him, and said, go not down into Egypt;

#2. Woe unto those who go to Egypt for help( Isaiah 31:1a).
The saving grace of Christ is so powerful and possessing that it does not permit you to go for help outside of HimNo other place of help is the truth, only Jesus is the way!
Follow this way and have life- 'dwell in the land which I shall tell thee of:'

Check out the promises of God for Isaac if he follows the way(verses 3-5.)

Verse 6: Isaac did obey. He dwelt in Gerar. How much of God do you obey?
I'm not talking of the 10 commandments now, I'm talking about personal instructions from the Lord for your Life.

#3. Sometimes obedience brings more troubles, trials and temptations than we ever thought.
How honest are you with the Lord? It's not worth a lie! Stay where He has asked you to, dwell in the land he has shown/placed you.
Are you in the relationship He told you to go into?
Are you studying the course He wants you to?
Are you practising the profession He wants you to Practise?

Remember Isaac had to dwell in Gerar if those promises made by God were to come to pass.

Till same time 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.

DO NOT SEEK A SIGN!

2 KINGS 3:17 KJV For thus saith the LORD, Ye shall not see wind, neither shall ye see rain; yet that valley shall be filled with water, that ye may drink, both ye, and your cattle, and your beasts.

God's word to us is relevance and guiding light as to how God will have it be is that we do not seek a sign for this month's wonder!

1 Corinthians 1:22  For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom.

But,
Ye are Christ! (1 Corinthians 3:23)

You are the sign of the wonder, you are the miracle says the Lord.

Most  supernatural operation around our life's this month will not call for attention like the bones in the valley! (Ezekiel 37)

Therefore Be still and known that I am God (Psalm 46: 12)

Welcome to March!









TERRITORIAL RELEVANCE

The Garden of Eden in Genesis is not just a Story or History. It is our life to be lived.
- It is the system of God for Territorial Relevance cum Global Relevance!

The garden was God's first gift to the unfallen man(Adam) and also, every redeemed man.

 Though, after the fall of the man; thus the corruption of the earth, the system changed.

Joel 2:3
[3]A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them.

The system changed to men going through The Wilderness experience first, before The Garden experience then True RELEVANCE!
- John the Baptist being the system, Jesus being the standard. You?

DATING - WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS

Dating and Dates ( - going on dates) are two different things.
Dates are events where an individual goes out to meet people and know people. eg. A father and daughter going on a date.

Dating is form of romantic courtship typically between two individuals with the aim of assessing the other's suitability as a partner in an intimate relationship or as a spouse.
It is going on with someone intentionally checking to know if you have compatibility (emotionally, sexually, etc) with him/her with no boundaries, specificity or exclusivity!

The concept of dating is not Kingdom-oriented. There's no such things as "Christian Dating".
What then do we do instead of dating?
Do you know how to find your wife without dating?
Do you know how to found by your husband without dating?
