ITS NEVER WORTH A LIE II.

Many weeks back we discussed the first part of this topic; Its never worth a Lie!

Today I'll be resuming back at the topic after my long unwilling break.... I am happy to have you back and I must confess I missed you a lot especially those loving comments and discussions of yours that follow each post.

The scripture we had a pause on was Genesis  26.


 And the men of the place asked him of his wife; and he said, She is my sister: for he feared to say, She is my wife; lest, said he, the men of the place should kill me for Rebekah; because she was fair to look upon.

Nugget 4:  Sometimes Obedience brings more than you can handle! 
But if you know the size of the blessings coming your way you'll understand the magnitude of the problems you are going through. If you know the what is ahead, you'll know why you're so stucked presently. You are too glorious not to be attacked and tried! But fear brings about Lies, and Lies results to death.

The men of the place asked Isaac of his wife: wherever God places you, you have authorities that tend to question your dominance but we all have to learn from this passage that only the Truth gives Dominion.

Nugget 5: Do not give in to fear, God is with you. 'In the waters and fire He is there with you.' speak the truth always because every time you are tempted to tell a lie and you refuse you have passed a test of progression into God's promises for your life.

And it came to pass, when he had been there a long time, that Abimelech king of the Philistines looked out at a window, and saw, and, behold, Isaac was sporting with Rebekah his wife.
And Abimelech called Isaac, and said, Behold, of a surety she is thy wife; and how saidst thou, She is my sister? And Isaac said unto him, Because I said, Lest I die for her.

Nugget 6: we all know how it feels when you think a lie you told is buried only for you to discover its springing up up again . The truth is you tell a lie but you bury the truth and the truth cannot be killed nor buried; it springs up back to live.

Its the truth that springs up here that saves not the lies you long told. Let Isaac try cover up for his lies he told Abimelech, he would have been dead.


10 And Abimelech said, What is this thou hast done unto us? one of the people might lightly have lien with thy wife, and thou shouldest have brought guiltiness upon us.


Nugget 7:  When you tell a lie, you alone do not deviate, you cause those around you too to deviate. You make them operate with you on a platform not written by God. ' Isaac almost brought guiltiness upon Gerar and her people'.

11 And Abimelech charged all his people, saying, He that toucheth this man or his wife shall surely be put to death.

Nugget 8: The hidden fact about lies to be unveiled is that when once told it takes life. The truth makes you free, it makes you untouchable.



12 Then Isaac sowed in that land, and received in the same year an hundredfold: and the Lord blessed him.
13 And the man waxed great, and went forward, and grew until he became very great:
14 For he had possession of flocks, and possession of herds, and great store of servants: and the Philistines envied him.


Nugget 9: You would not know how much you have buried with the truth until the truth arrives

A lie doesn't save you, It slaves you!

Isaac told a lie to save his life but instead slaved his life. He could not sow in the land, He remained the same way he was when he entered into the land with just what he had- Rebekah!( his wife turned sister). That's just the same way it applies to us all, nothing in our life is worth a lie, every constituents in us us made f the truth even our destiny and it takes the truth to get it fulfilled.


When we continue to lie, we live a different LIFE(Living In False Expressions) said  
Emmanuel Onwi'

Take some moment to pray this piece: What lies had cost me in times past let the truth which is Jesus Christ cure me of them in Jesus name.... Amen.

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.

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).

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).

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.
