HOW DO YOU AMAZE JESUS IV.



Faith: Using what you have to get what you want.
That’s just my definition of faith from the above sub-title.
How do you use the little in your hands?

We discussed in the last post how the captain humbly told Jesus in verse 8b:‘but speak the word and my servant shall be healed’ - that was purely faith. Authority in humility!
The Centurion was a man under authority as rightly said in verse 9; He operated authority so he knew what authority was like. He said further: ‘I say to this man, Go and he goeth; and to another, Come and he cometh, and to my Servant Do this and he doeth it.

But I want to open our eyes to how he used what he had learnt or what he had to get what he wanted from Jesus.

The attitude of using what he had - Authority, to get what he wanted- the healing of his servant was through faith- ‘but speak the word only’.


How do you use what you have to get what you want?
What is in your hands?
What do you want from the Lord?
How do you reconcile what is in your hands and want you want from the Lord?
How often do you use your faith??

If it was to be this age that Jesus himself offered to come ‘speak the word and your servant be healed’ a lot of us won’t agree. We will only agree that He comes around, prays for the servant, touches him/her, bath and even feed the servant plus tell lots of mysterious things and visions to prove He’s Jesus. We forget most times little things count.

The scripture said ‘If ye have faith just like the mustard seed…….. You’ll tell the mountains to move into the seas; (Matthew 17:20 KJV).
Does it now mean that you do not even have faith all? I have prayed so much about this  and that  and it is not coming, I have asked of the least of stuffs  for my neighbour from the Lord but He’s not responded…….. Here lies the answer:

Faith- is using what you have to get what you want. How?
    (a)   Jesus Christ fed 5000 with 5 loaves of b read and 2 little fishes (Matthew 14:13-21)   
    (b)   Elijah and that Widow; the little oil in the jar paid the whole debt (II Kings 4:3-6)
    (c)    Moses used the Rod in his hand to part the Red sea (Exodus 14:16) and many more.
What I am saying is faith without works is dead (James 2:26 KJV).


You must learn the art of using what you have in your hands to pursue/get what you want through prayers.

 Faith is not that attitude that prays folding his/her hands and expecting God to do the whole drama - 
He’s not a magician, He’s God!

I should have stopped posting all of this write-up ever since January 04, 2016 but I will never allow that happen. In the absence of a PC, I blog from my mobile; limited in the things I can do mobile wise…. I keep on blogging in faith!

There is something you have been asking the Lord for that you and you alone have the response to.
Whatever is in your life is not for fun!
Some of us even like the Centurion have great authority in Christ Jesus, but we fail to use it to amaze the Lord. We now become beggars.
I have come to discover that anything in your life that you refuse to use will be taken away from you (Matthew 13:12, 14:25 KJV).
Remember the parable of the talents? Anything that is not of faith is sin. (Romans 14:23)
Use your faith; amaze Jesus with what’s in your hand. He’s a miracle working God!

Let us pray: As we come to the conclusion of the series; how do you amaze Jesus? I pray us all the grace to practise love, through prayers, humility and faith. By the Grace of God you’ll have no choice than to share a testimony with me soonest in Jesus name. Amen!



Remain blessed.

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.

IS HEAVEN THE THRONE OF GOD?

Psalm 11:4: The Lord is in His holy temple; the LORD's throne IS IN Heaven; His eyes behold, His eyelids test the sons of men.

This verse separate the Lord's throne from Heaven but opens our eyes to an operation; a modus - operandi. The Lord's throne IS IN HEAVEN!

An Estate as a case study!
I do not live in an Estate; I currently dwell in the cave adullam as we speak but you'd hear a couple of person say "I live in Harmony Estate" as an example but this individual's house is literally "in" [inside] the Estate. For example; House #24, Harmony Estate...

It is on this basis I exclaimed "Heaven is not God's throne!" in the message THE MYSTERY CALLED MAN.

There is Heaven and God has a throne!
I stand today boldly that God has a literal throne, but He created Heaven someday and thus, the throne existed before Heaven.

After the creation of the Heaven and the Earth...
The Heavens by the activity of men causes the throne of God to be operate…

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 …

SHOULD WOMEN COVER THEIR HAIRS IN CHURCH?

It is common practice for some women to cover their heads when they go to church. Others cover their heads when praying. Since 1 Corinthians 11:4-6 states that women should cover their heads when praying, several questions arise:
Did the apostle Paul refer to a cultural situation where women wore a head covering? Should women cover their hairs and if so, with what?                                                                  Was Paul addressing the situation of women praying or prophesying in the church or outside the church?1 Corinthians 11:4-5 states that all women should cover HEADS not HAIR when praying!

Meaning of the Words “Head” and “Uncovered”
1 Corinthians 11:4-6 appears to some to teach that women should wear a scarf or something else on their heads. However, the question is where?

Every man who has something on his head while praying or prophesying disgraces his head. But every woman…

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…
