DEFINE YOUR OPPORTUNITIES

I know you will be asking this question probably to yourself: Do you identify opportunities before you define them? Today i am publishing this piece just to create in you the consciousness of the awareness of the fact that; You identify opportunities before you define them.


When it comes to opportunities, you cannot define which suits you until you have identified it. 
Opportunities are defined by your Call according to His purpose.

Let me dwell a bit on this. I have come across series and various opportunities that seem to have seeds of greatness in them, let me use Writing as an instance. There are types or categories of writing and I can write well enough ranging from the Scripture to Imaginations or call it emotional's but of it all I had to define my opportunities. Spiritual/Scriptural, Business/Financial and Emotional writings are my defined  opportunities. Every other type of writing- Social, Political etc are Identified Opportunities and not Defined Opportunities.

How you get to know your Defined Opportunities is that you find the strength required to do them and they refine you.


Lets go Scriptural a bit:
If you followed the story of Daniel I was discussing with you last week, you'll discover something great about defining your Opportunity.

Daniel 2:49- Then Daniel requested of the King, and he set Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, over the affairs of the province of Babylon; but Daniel sat in the gate of the king.

All in the verse above happened after he(Daniel) told the king his dream and the interpretation to it. The king made Daniel a great man, gave him many great gifts, made him ruler over the whole province of Babylon and Chief of the governors over all men of Babylon.

Daniel sorted all this opportunities out i.e. he identified his opportunities but out of it all he defined his opportunity! Lets review how he did that.


  • He accepted the greatness
  • HE accepted the many great gifts
  • He rejected ruling over the affairs of the province of Babylon- requesting the King setting Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego
  • HE accepted being the Cjief of governors over all the wise men of Babylon
We all need to know that not everything that comes our way shining is an opportunity. It is not all that is gold that glitters.

Daniel identified 4 opportunities but defined 3 of the 4 to be his and they did refine him. How?

Refine according to word-web dictionary means: Improve/Perfect by Polishing.

His defined Opportunities made him work with three administrations/Kingdoms;
  •   Daniel served as an Advisor or Wise man under King Nebuchadnezzar
  •   King Belshazzar called on Daniel to interpret the writing on the wall 
  •   HE was one of the three administrator under King Darius
  •   HE was living during the reign of King Cyrus of Persia but the Bible gives no account or record of his service to that monarch.- i.e He lived long. Even if your defined opportunities will not give you anything, they give you long life!

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.

SPIRITUAL INTERACTION 1

John 12:24
[24]Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit. 


There are depths in the spirit just as there are depths in the soil. Death in the Bible verse above represents an interaction (of the seed with the soil).

Nothing grows by itself. Whatever will grow must interact and be interacted with.

The seed (you) interacts with its environment (God) to bear fruits.
Thus, there are two keys of interaction;
1. The object to be planted (the seed - you),
2. The environment (God).

God is the ultimate environment of our spiritual nature and we are so constituted by God that we cannot interact without him.

God is the environment and not the object!

Google is an aberrated system of God to teach men that there is a system in Him that can help men search out the realities of God, the very deep things of God - a system of interaction and knowing the heart of the Father.

But, a generation will never…

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 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!

SPIRITUAL INTELLIGENCE

Revelation 22:14
Blessed are those who do the commandments that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city.

Any man that keeps the commandments of God opens himself up to the right to the tree of life that he may find himself eating of that tree.

There is a force of creation, and one of the factors that you must get correctly is COMMANDMENTS.

Commandments are God’s word to a man. They are the very element used by God to make covenants with men. It is the first dimension in the ordinance cycle.


What then is ordinance?
Ordinance is simply the embodiment of the codes of creation. It is ordinance that makes LAWS.

There are two dimensions of laws.
1. Spiritual laws and
2. Natural laws
These two dimensions merge into what is called PRINCIPLES.

Principles are bodies of laws (spiritual and natural laws) with God's integrity on them.
Everything is built by laws; governed by principles and activate…
