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.

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!
