HOW DO YOU AMAZE JESUS II



The Man Centurion Said it to Jesus

Verse 6: And Saying, Lord, My Servant lieth at home sick of palsy, grievously tormented.

How do you report your problems to Jesus?
There are two ways of reporting issues to Jesus as i discovered: 
(a) To say i.e. Explain and (b)Complain
I have come to discover how you report your problems/challenges/situations describes who Jesus is to you.
(a) When you say- You call Jesus your Lord. i.e The Lord over your life, the lord over your problems and you know he can proffer a solution.

Lord- A term referring to the judeo-christian God. OR A person who has general authority over others. (Ref; Wordweb Dictionary)
 
What I am trying to paint is when you say your situations to him you humble yourself and bring low the problems thereby exalting Him as Lord- the one who has authority over all.
No wonder the scriptures taught us how to Say the Lord’s prayer.

(b) When you Complain- You have not called him Lord. How do I mean?
You do not complain to someone who has a solution to your problems, you explain and that is saying!
Permit me use this as an example: If the Head of department of the company you work misbehaves/ ill-treats you, you complain to your colleague about it because they have nothing to do about but you explain that ill-situation to the Managing Director or Chief Executive Officer of the company.

Complaining does not make the problem plain but brings about a replay!

This is just another way I discovered the Centurion amazed Jesus! How do you amaze him? 

My prayer is that at this minute the Holy Spirit help you realize the need to say(Explain) and not Complain just like the Centurion.

Complain according to the word-web dictionary is to; express complaints, discomfort, displeasure or unhappiness.

I want you to know God is not moved by emotions, he’s not moved by how much you complain but explain.

I charge you today to explain it all to Him today and you’ll definitely come back to testify to his response.
When you complain you only explain your pain for no gain!

Do remember God is not moved by your emotions but your faith.

Good Morning,

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.

KAIROS: THE MYSTERY OF TIME

At the very beginning of Jesus’ earthly ministry  Jesus tells of a great opportunity: God’s kingdom is within our reach. To enter the kingdom, however, we must go through a process of REPENTANCE and BELIEF.

Mark 1:14‭-‬15 KJV‬‬: Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God,  And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.

Through this process we learn how:
-To lay down our lives
-Pick up the cross
-Follow Jesus into the kingdom

These three highlights aren’t steps but a circle that represents our Journey into the kingdom of God and time: the kairos moments in our lives which is the portal through which we enter into Kingdom living.

What is a Kairos Moment? 
A portal (access) through which we enter into dimensions of results. It is a moment and moments defines time just like seasons define destiny.
Eg: Jesus’ death on the cross was not a last-ditch effort on God’s  part …

BOLDNESS: the requirement for Servanthood.

While it is not scriptural to pray for faith,  you can ask God for boldness.
Very soon after the early church had received the baptism of the Holy Spirit, we see them petition for it.
-It takes Boldness to dispense the anointing  NOT just faith.
Faith is used to receive not dispense(create) in the operations of the anointing.Though the gift of faith manifests boldness too.

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).

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.
