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 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!

THE REVIVAL AND THE MOVES OF GOD

Genesis 2:4-6
[4]These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens,
[5]And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.
[6]But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.

God had not caused it to rain upon the earth because there was no man. God is helpless without a man and will never be able to send down His rain(move) on earth without a man.

Thus, there are two elements that makes up the move of God:
1. A man
2. Territories

What is the Move of God?
The move of God is God moving men through roles in His agenda which births events called Revivals.
A revelation of Alignment!

Kingdom advancement is territorial and not just personal. The value system of the kingdom must translate from you and be reflected in your…

GOD'S UNIVERSAL AGENDA: THE EVERLASTING KINGDOM.

There is a kingdom which transcend beyond kingdoms that are bound by time, which is ruled by vanity. This Kingdom is void of human corruption, absent of pain and hatred. This Kingdom is eternal and sovereign.
It is known as the Kingdom of God.

THE 21ST CENTURY MIRACLE

Isaiah 8:17-18
[17]And I will wait upon the LORD, that hideth his face from the house of Jacob, and I will look for him.
[18]Behold, I and the children whom the LORD hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the LORD of hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion.


God hides himself from a generation that they may seek Him. And only those that seek Him in a generation finds Him. These ones become Signs(Systems of Reference) and do Wonders!
It is only those that know(have found) their God that are: Strong(a sign)and do Exploits(Wonders)!


Thus, you are the miracle your Generation needs!

You are a sign for signs; you're supernatural.
You are a sign for wonders; you're a miracle.
You are for signs and wonders.
But do you know the miracle this century needs?


As a miracle for you to happen, you have to understand the difference between signs, wonders and miracles. The illustration attached above explains this.

Having seen thus;
1. Do not confuse the signs for all believers as mi…
