HOW DO YOU AMAZE JESUS III



Humility
I proposed ending this write-up on the second part but the Holy Spirit opened my eyes to something invaluable - Humility!

I will be sharing with you how I discovered Humility as the third step through which the Centurion amazed Jesus.

I earlier defined a Centurion as the leader of hundred soldiers (warriors) in ancient Rome. That means a Centurion is a man of authority! For 'I am a man of authority' would have been the word used by the scripture writers if it was this age but the scriptures in Matthew8:9: 

‘For I am a man under authority’ this was my first discovery of his humility.
The bible said  'a soft answer turneth away wrath'- proverbs 15:1(KJV)
Can we trace humility to your responses? Can we trace humility to the way you talk and approach other and even Christ?
Grievous words stir up anger do not forget!

After Jesus replied him in Mathew8:7: I will come and heal him, the centurion even amazed me when he answered Jesus and said: Lord I’m not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof (verse 8a).

If it were to be you and I you know what would have happened? We would have changed the subject to Jesus Christ is coming straight to my house live! –Pride.
 
We would concentrate so deep about we bringing Jesus Christ to the neighbourhood that even Jesus will decide to go back abruptly ending the healing journey.

We are in the era where we carry Jesus in us- the Holy Spirit and you know how you and I behave.
How have you used the Jesus Christ you carry? Is it in Pride or Humility??

The Scriptures revealed ‘the Lord resisteth the proud but he gaveth grace to the humble                   – James 4:6(KJV) 
Though the LORD be high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly:  but the proud he knoweth afar off            – Psalms 138:6.

You might be thinking in your heart I’m a child of the kingdom, bought by a price, made a son.
Yes, you are what you are and it can’t be taken away from you but it can be taken away by you!
What is the essence of Sonship without Fatherhood (His Presence)?

Pride rids a Christian off the Holy Spirit and makes him/her think I have got the Holy Spirit in my life keeping you from the knowledge that a christian can operate just the gifts.

Remember ‘it’s the gifts and callings of God that are without repentance’ not His presence!             It is through humility you have his presence.

You do not seem to understand when He said to us... ‘Do not walk in the counsel of the ungodly
(Psalms 1:1).
A little leaven leaveneth the whole bread!

Pride kills! It does not give you the clue of repentance not to talk of you obtaining forgiveness.

Back to the Centurion- Verse 8b: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed. Amazing! He took God by His words; he knew what the presence of the Lord is.

He could brilliantly distinguish between the gift of the spirit (healing) and the presence of the Spirit (His words) which a proud Christian can’t.
How humble are you?

My prayer for everyone reading this piece is that God give us the grace to humbly humble ourselves that He will be exalted in Jesus name.
One king rules the kingdom, its either you or Him.
The Holy Spirit does not strife. John the Baptist said I decrease that He (Jesus Christ) must increase. Humility! Do well to decrease that He may increase.

God bless you!

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.

DATING - WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS

Dating and Dates ( - going on dates) are two different things.
Dates are events where an individual goes out to meet people and know people. eg. A father and daughter going on a date.

Dating is form of romantic courtship typically between two individuals with the aim of assessing the other's suitability as a partner in an intimate relationship or as a spouse.
It is going on with someone intentionally checking to know if you have compatibility (emotionally, sexually, etc) with him/her with no boundaries, specificity or exclusivity!

The concept of dating is not Kingdom-oriented. There's no such things as "Christian Dating".
What then do we do instead of dating?
Do you know how to find your wife without dating?
Do you know how to found by your husband without dating?

TERRITORIAL RELEVANCE

The Garden of Eden in Genesis is not just a Story or History. It is our life to be lived.
- It is the system of God for Territorial Relevance cum Global Relevance!

The garden was God's first gift to the unfallen man(Adam) and also, every redeemed man.

 Though, after the fall of the man; thus the corruption of the earth, the system changed.

Joel 2:3
[3]A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them.

The system changed to men going through The Wilderness experience first, before The Garden experience then True RELEVANCE!
- John the Baptist being the system, Jesus being the standard. You?

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!
