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 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…

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 …

THE MINISTRIES OF MEN 2

Romans 11:29
[29] For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance. 

Notice the word "GIFTS" here is plural, while the word "CALLING" being singular.
There is only one calling!
There is no higher or lesser call than the other.

Although, this does not disregard the fact that there are some people specially reserved and set in the body as offices. This calling is to grow into the stature of the Christ.  It was the Lord who went down beyond and gave gifts unto men.

Remember, the Law of giving;
YOU CAN NOT GIVE WHAT YOU DO NOT HAVE!
And so, Christ himself being the embodiment of the 5-fold gave of himself. In following Christ, as you keep growing through into the template of the Christ - in maturity and stature, you will begin to experience the 5-fold (apostolic, prophetic, evangelical, pastoral, and teaching) ministry in your life.

The gifts are for all to profit withal, it is not the inheritance of any man.
We do not just have gift; we are all gifts and on the b…

SPIRITUAL INTERACTION 3

1 Corinthians 2:4-5
[4]And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:
[5]That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.

...the demonstration of the Spirit (fellowship) and of power (partnership)!
You become an able man(a man of the spirit) when you have these two. When you truly pay the price for fellowship, you cannot but experience partnership.

Download Spiritual Interaction 1 & 2 to understand fellowship and the levels in Intimacy(Koinonia)
Partnership is the ministry of the spirit not the ministry of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is a Spirit and that makes Him part of the ministry of the spirit.

It is true that the Holy Spirit is the governor of all spirits but there are other spirits you will have to participate with to produce results. There are rankings in the spirit and spirits don't break their ranks!

Spiritual Interaction has to do with interaction with s…
