Whose Report do you now believe?

Matthew 7:21-23(CEV) 21. Not everyone who calls me their lord will get into the kingdom of heaven. Only the ones who obey my father in heaven will get in. 
22. on the Day of Judgement, many will call me their lord. They will say “we preached in your name, and in your name we forced out demons and worked many miracles 
23. but I will tell them, “I will have nothing to do with you! Get out of my sight, you evil people!”  
After meditating on a poem engraved in a church in Germany (which I read from Christopher parkling’s autobiography) touching me in the spirit the poem reminded me of what Jesus warned us about in ( Matthew 7:21-23) about the judgement day; the poem goes thus………..
Why do you call me, lord, and do not do the things I say 
You call me the way and walk me not
You call me the life and live me not
You call me the master and obey me not
If I condemn thee, blame me not
You call me bread and eat me out
You call me the truth and believe me not
Ye call me “lord “and serve me not
If I condemn thee, blame me not.
In our present world where evil, corruption, sin, immorality to mention a few seem to be the norm, what is your stand as a Christian? Something we should be glad about is the fact that there is a greater price ahead, greater than the present suffering we are passing through and even greater than the persecution we face each day. Heaven is much more gracious and glorious, a place that offers you and I the peace we can never get here on earth and only true obedience is the way to getting this promise.
It may not be enough for us to just be religious since God is most particular about obedience and frowns about us not yielding to his voice (word). Even in a relationship there is a place of communication! In our relationship with God, whenever He speaks or give you His word it is expected of us to yield, Saul was punished for not completely yielding to God’s instruction (1 Samuel 15:22-23).

Christianity is a race which ends when we die i.e. when we die here on earth. We must also have the understanding that, it is not a race that ends after we are saved or after we receive the Holy Spirit. It is continuous. Philippians 3 v 12(CEV) - I have not yet reached out my goals, and I am not perfect, but Christ has taken hold of me. So I keep running and struggling to take hold of the prize.”
The way out is a constant, uninterrupted relationship with God. A constant communion i.e. a relationship that does not falter but gets better; a non-stop relationship that is what a Christian who wants heaven needs, a yielding heart and a constant relationship.

Last week this mesmerizing writer wrote on 'whose report will you believe?', He highlighted God's report as: His counsel, His way and The Seat, but there's always an other side you know. In my walk through life as a young adult, I have discovered Men prefer to walk through or choose to follow the ways of the world! that made me coin a quote sometimes back: Look up to God and Live, Look up to Man and Leave!
What touched me in his write-up was when he said: Christianity is  race that ends when we die here on earth! 
Permit me say: It's our Obedience that doesn't end because even in Heaven we must be Obedient!
why not believe the report of God today because 'even in the gourd he's God!'

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.
