SWOT SERIES: SPIRI-FINANCIAL ANALYSIS.

Good morning Monday digest readers and happy new week.
This week we'll be going into a series that will last some weeks and I promise you it'll be loaded and Interesting.
I have decided to write on a very popular topic SWOT and I know if I am just to discuss SWOT a lot of you have read different articles on it but I have come to give you something different:
The Spiri-Financial Analysis!
Today we'll be taking some introduction and next week we'll kick off on what we've got for you.


INTRODUCTION
SWOT analysis is an initialism for strengths , weaknesses , opportunities , and threats —and is a structured planning method that evaluates those four elements of a project, business venture or personality.
SWOT analysis can be carried out for a product, place, industry, or person.
And I want to believe you know here in CL Blogs we are interested in you as a person, so we'll be taking some series on how some Spiri-Financial Analysis can work it all out for you.

SWOT Analysis involves specifying the objective of the business venture or project and identifying the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable to achieve that objective.

And at this point I'll like to define some terms generally used in SWOT Analysis.
INITIALISM
1. Strengths: characteristics of the business, project or personality that give it an advantage over others
2. Weaknesses: characteristics that place the business, project or personality at a disadvantage relative to others
3. Opportunities: elements that the business, project or personality could exploit to its advantage
4. Threats: elements in the environment that could cause trouble for the business, project or personality

FACTORS 1. Internal factors – the strengths and
weaknesses internal to the business, project or personality.
Analysis may view the internal factors as
strengths or as weaknesses depending upon their effect on the business, project or personality objectives.
What may represent strengths with respect to one objective may be weaknesses (distractions, competition) for another objective.

2. External factors – the opportunities and threats presented by the environment external to the business, project or personality.
The external factors may include macroeconomic matters, technological change, legislation, and sociocultural changes, as well as changes in the marketplace or in competitive position.

It is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you can win a hundred battles without a single loss. If you only know yourself, but not your opponent, you may win or may lose. If you know neither yourself nor your enemy, you will always endanger yourself.        
-The Art of War (Sun Tzu).

All these being said I just had to come to the conclusion that:
If what appears strength may be weaknesses to another then all these can be strengths or even weaknesses depending on the position of the business/ Project/ Personality in view.

Till next week when we'll be discussing Strength, Stay financially pure!

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.

Lets move on; The Apostle Paul speaks of the variety of spiritual gifts : “Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all. . . . But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will” (I Corinthians 12:4–11).

DISCERNING THE MOVE OF GOD

Acts 2:17 [17]And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams God wants to move again and He needs a lot of vessels. God is not trying to repeat the same thing. He does not fail so He does not repeat. He only uses a familiar operation; a familiar move to men to progress the birth of The revival. Christianity(The Sphere of Religion) cannot export and empty itself into other spheres of influence, Men have to be exported into these spheres and the only way men will be exported is when we discern what God is trying to do and position ourselves for these moves. Our generation has to understand the synchronization between the Cyclical and the Acyclical move of God. We need to understand how these dimensions sync into each other to birth the revival.

ARE YOU TRUE TO YOUR CALLING? | Pastor E.A Adeboye

There are many people in ministry today who are going off track because they are operating in areas wherein they were not called.  Some out of personal ambition, are operating in callings that are not theirs while others are innocently operating in the wrong callings out of concern. Having a burden about something or seeing a need does not automatically translate to a calling! “And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully.”                    2 Timothy 2:5 KJV According to the above Bible verse, anyone who does things outside the will of the Master will be disqualified. Everyone who God has called is scored by Him! If what you are doing is outside God’s calling for your life, no matter how good you are in that calling or ministry, it is regarded as irrelevant. Paul was greatly burdened by how the Jews were walking outside the will of God. He kept preaching to them, yet they were persecuting him. The greatest persecution he go
