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.

DID JOHN THE BAPTIST REALLY EAT INSECTS(LOCUST)?

His name was divinely given. It was to be “John” (Luke 1:13), which derives from a Hebrew term signifying “Jehovah is gracious.” He was known familiarly as “the Baptist” (bearing no relation to the modern sect), which simply means “an immerser, one who administers the rite of immersion” (Matthew. 3:1; 11:11; ..). The Jewish historian Josephus even refers to John by this designation (Antiquities 18.5.2).


The importance of John in the divine scheme of things probably is summed up best in the testimony of Jesus himself. “Among them that are born of women there has not arisen a greater than John the Baptist” (Matthew 11:11). Luke does say of John: “And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, and was in the deserts till the day of his showing unto Israel” (Luke 1:80). This desert (or deserted) area “stretches from Jerusalem and Bethlehem eastward some 20 miles down to the Jordan River and the Dead Sea.” It is “a barren region of rugged hills and valleys” (Earle, 30).

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.

ARE THERE TYPES OF FAST?

ARE THERE TYPES OF FAST? Fasting is the periodic abstention from food and in some cases even water; usually this is done during the daylight hours and many people fast for religious and health reasons. Fasting is an ancient practice that has assisted in attaining a state of spiritual consciousness that is more highly sensitive and elevated than under normal conditions.

Many people in the Bible fasted, including Moses, David, and Daniel in the Old Testament and Anna, Paul, and Jesus Christ in the New Testament. Many important figures in Christian history attested to fasting’s value, as do many Christians today.

The purpose of fasting is not to get God to respond as a genie in a bottle to grant our every wish. Fasting, whether it is regular, partial, absolute, or sexual, is a seeking after God’s heart, all other blessings and benefits being secondary to God Himself. This is what sets apart biblical fasting from other religious and cultural practices around the world.
