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,
Oluwatobiloba Oshunbiyi.

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…

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…

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…

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 …
