THE MEAL FOR EVERY DEAL




 If you will take your time to review our Monday Digest (MD), you’ll agree with me this topic was coined from a quote under a blog post: Strength in the Swot analysis here on CL Blogs.
This quote cum topic is aimed at making you realize that even when there are no opportunities around you, you create one. Can you relate that?


Creating Opportunities has to do with two things;
(a) Having others in your creation plan i.e. an opportunity that will affect the people around you and yourself
(b) Hitting the deal right.
What deal?

As you know here at CL Blogs we aim at reaching everyone out there irrespective of their age/status, thus, every one of us here is believed to have a Deal.

Word web defined Deal:         (a) Verb - to do business; offer for sale as for one’s livelihood
                                                (b) Be in Charge of or direct the course of
                                                (c) Manage/ Control  

The picture I am trying to paint here is this:
                                                                    
(a)   We are all offering something for sale(our time, skills, competencies, knowledge) as for our livelihood
(b)   We all are in charge of something- a business/proposed one, A job position/job hunt, a career/a course(training)
(c)    Lastly we all manage/control value- Money.
So with my little definitions I think you will believe we are all in a Deal and that means we need some values/stuffs to pull us through which I have termed meal.

A Meal (word-web dictionary):
(a)   The food served and eaten at one time
(b)    Coarsely ground foodstuff; especially seeds of various cereal grasses or pulse.
I.e. A meal is a combination of coarsely grounded stuffs (values) served and eaten at one time.
What I am saying is this: there is a combination of stuffs (values, cores, training, skills etc) that after coarsely grounded [which may take some time] is served and eaten at one time.

No wonder we do not hear about great men in their preparation i.e. while they are coarsely grounded we only notice them when they are served.
How well are you preparing?
How well are you grounded? Coarsely??

You are Serving to be Served do not forget.
Wherever you are today, you are being fed with the Meal for your Deal.

For the sake of introduction, we’ll be considering the four components of the Meal for your Deal in a short while from now by God’s grace in the order of its acronym.

M – Monitoring
E - Evaluation                                  For  
A - Accountability                           Every
L - Learning                                     Deal

I wish you a blessed week while I pray for you:
Lord Jesus, I commit this dear reader into your hands, He wants to make a meaning of his/her business life that he had to even read this introductory piece. Dear Lord, I ask you show him/her the way, guide him and enlarge him. Teach him how to Monitor, Evaluate, Account and Learn even before the end of this series that your name will be glorified 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 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 …

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 …
