WHOSE REPORT WILL YOU BELIEVE.

Whose report will you believe? ISAIAH53:1
Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers (Psalms 1:1 NIV)

The counsel
Instructions given by God comes with blessing for those that diligently follow them/obey (Zechariah 6:15) and curses for those that do the opposite (Deuteronomy 11:28).

Today’s Christians must be vigilant to know that the world has a counsel, a way and a seat or gathering.

In simple terms a counsel is an opinion, a point of view, advice or recommendation from a more experience person or a wiser person. The counsel of the world may seem right but, where do we put God’s counsel or godly counsel?
Many refuse God because the worldly counsel sounds better to their hearing and easy to work with (since the general populace does the same) or so they may not look the odd one out or look old school. Just like Jehoshaphat who did not depend on military or the opinion of the world but was eager, wanting to know what God wants (1 Kings 22:55 NIV) brethren!
Whose counsel are you seeking before you take that important decision?
"First seek the counsel of the LORD, don’t forget Absalom when he decided to follow man’s advice marked the beginning of his failure (2samuel17:14-17) although the counsel of the world may be good but still God still want us to seek his counsel.


The way
For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. (Isaiah 55:9 KJV)
There is no easy way out of this, it is either you blindly and dumbly follow the way of the lord or walk the way of the world which certainly leads to destruction. So when you act like or do the things the children of the world do, what would differentiate you from them?
How would God know you are his Child? (Zechariah 3:7 KJV). Why the lord’s way? In the lord’s way there is longevity (1 Kings 3:14 KJV), in His way you are assured of his presence with you and a ‘sure home’ (a place in his everlasting kingdom) (1 Kings 11:38 KJV), in his way we are saved from death and judgement (Ezekiel 18:29-30 KJV).
It is important to know that the way of truth is not easy, smooth, and rosy (Matthew 7:14 and  Jeremiah 21:8
AMP.] Still it is important to note that ours is the way of life.


The seat

 I know where you live-where Satan has his throne. Yet you remain true to my name. You did not renounce your faith in me, even in the days of Antipas, my faithful witness, and who was put to death in your city-where Satan lives. (Revelation 2:13 NIV)
Even in this present age where the devil lay siege everywhere and it seem there are no breathing space or spaces for us (Christians), we all need to take our stand and not be conformists (Romans 12:1-2NIV). If it is for the sake of eternity it is all worth it (Matthew 16:26 For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? KJV)

You know as a teacher of the word I'll always coin a quote/nugget.
"The report you believe determines the result you achieve"- Oluwatobiloba Oshunbiyi.
 Do well to:

(a) Watch the counsel you follow
(b) The way through which you get the report you believe
(c) The seat on which you analyze the counsel.


Thank You Moses Aiyenugba, You don't know how much I cherish 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.

THE MYSTERY CALLED MAN

Psalm 8:4-6
[4]What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?
[5]For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.
[6]Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet

Everything in heaven and on Earth was created for man but man cannot make use of it until he knows WHAT HE IS.

Heaven was never created for God. Heaven and Earth were created for man... But it takes a man who knows WHAT he is to accurately represent God on earth, because, man is meant to extend the fullness of God in the earth for God and so, in reality, God needs men!

We came from God; not heaven and we are returning to God through heaven!
1 Timothy 3:16
[16]And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.

The Lord Jesus did all …

IS HEAVEN THE THRONE OF GOD?

Psalm 11:4: The Lord is in His holy temple; the LORD's throne IS IN Heaven; His eyes behold, His eyelids test the sons of men.

This verse separate the Lord's throne from Heaven but opens our eyes to an operation; a modus - operandi. The Lord's throne IS IN HEAVEN!

An Estate as a case study!
I do not live in an Estate; I currently dwell in the cave adullam as we speak but you'd hear a couple of person say "I live in Harmony Estate" as an example but this individual's house is literally "in" [inside] the Estate. For example; House #24, Harmony Estate...

It is on this basis I exclaimed "Heaven is not God's throne!" in the message THE MYSTERY CALLED MAN.

There is Heaven and God has a throne!
I stand today boldly that God has a literal throne, but He created Heaven someday and thus, the throne existed before Heaven.

After the creation of the Heaven and the Earth...
The Heavens by the activity of men causes the throne of God to be operate…

SHOULD WOMEN COVER THEIR HAIRS IN CHURCH?

It is common practice for some women to cover their heads when they go to church. Others cover their heads when praying. Since 1 Corinthians 11:4-6 states that women should cover their heads when praying, several questions arise:
Did the apostle Paul refer to a cultural situation where women wore a head covering? Should women cover their hairs and if so, with what?                                                                  Was Paul addressing the situation of women praying or prophesying in the church or outside the church?1 Corinthians 11:4-5 states that all women should cover HEADS not HAIR when praying!

To understand this better, Download the Podcast:  Should Women Cover their Hairs in Church 
Meaning of the Words “Head” and “Uncovered”
1 Corinthians 11:4-6 appears to some to teach that women should wear a scarf or something else on their heads. However, the question is where?

Every man who has something on his head while praying or prophesying disgraces his head. But every woman…

THE MYSTERY OF HIS PRESENCE

Have you ever wondered why God will not honour the words of certain men and honour that of another?
Have you ever thought about something  like this or experienced this:
The Bible says .....You shall lay your hands upon the sick and they will recover(Mark 16:18b). You laid your hands and instead of a recovery, you found a discovery – that the man is not healed and the sickness/disease has back-fired. This can be painful......  until a young man comes and at the sound of his voice, the infirmity flees.
Has this ever bothered you?
Or that a man speaks into existence instantly what you have been begging God for with fasting and prayers.




I bring you a mystery today!
