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.

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.
