THE MEAL FOR EVERY DEAL V.



LEARNING

Learning (Word web Dictionary): The cognitive process of acquiring skill/knowledge.
For the purpose of this study, I’ll be working with the definition above.
I started this series with the clarification that Knowledge is the same as Information, and I Further defined 

·         Monitoring – the act of gathering Information

·         Evaluation -  the processing of  gathered Information

·         Accountability - the taking of responsibility of the       processed     Information


After doing this trio is there still a thing left I retorted while writing this up in the early hours of the day. Then I answered myself – Yes! 
There is more to Learning not because it’s the last letter of the acronym MEAL but because grace dropped something on my heart to share with you again.

I go fully into the discussion of the day:
Learning (Word web Dictionary): The cognitive process of acquiring skill/knowledge.
Acquiring(according to word web): The act of getting something.

Therefore, Learning is the cognitive process of getting Skills/knowledge.

I want you to read along with the ideology of interpreting getting in this context to mean buying/purchasing.
Therefore:
·         Learning is the cognitive process of buying the valued processed Information.

I want to try my best get the basics of this sub-topic into your subconscious and I’ll start with a quote:

You gather to get!

Back to the Scriptures:
Learning (Word web Dictionary): The cognitive process of acquiring skill/knowledge.
                                      Matt 13:44-46:                       
                   The Parable of the Hidden Treasure

44 "Again, the kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and hid; and for joy over it he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.

The Parable of the Pearl of Great Price

45 "Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant seeking beautiful pearls,  46 who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had and bought it.
NKJV

                                                  Learning comes after Joy!

In other words, Acquisition comes after Joy.
Joy made these 2 men sell all they had to buy the field and goodly pearl respectively.

What is your Joy??
That’s to say you cannot Acquire what you do not Desire irrespective of what is Required!

The issue is most young Adult out there venture into their relationships, business/career/job without proper monitoring, evaluation and accountability thereby making it hard for them finding Joy.   

We talking business today as it is a Monday and that will make me ask this question: 
Is your business/career/job giving you Joy? If it does not then you cannot acquire!
Joy comes after you have Monitored Evaluated and Accounted.

Remember that Scripture?
Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.  (AMP Psalms 30:5)

What that scripture is saying is the Monitoring period, the evaluation period and time of test of accountability will only last for a while - the night but the Joy (derived from the night) comes in the morning.
That’s the Joy that helped these two guys in the scriptures we read above get those deal.

Men do not see your toil (Monitoring, Evaluations, Accountability) which is the night, Men see your morning – what you have learnt, what you have acquired!

Jesus said in John 9:4:
I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work. (NKJV)

The night here in this scripture is talking about the time when you can no more acquire!
Utilize the day, make use of all the experience gathered, let all the happiness amount to Joy and acquire!

I challenge everyone reading this piece today, go where the Joy is!
Do not let the economic situation of your country, background, academic qualifications or complexes direct your path to where you find no joy.
If you remain where you joy is not, you will remain there forever – You’ll come out with nothing.

Do remember this: Your passion gives you Joy – Joy helps you acquire!

Learning is therefore the right application of all your experiences with Information. How well do you make use of Information?

Till some fresh series, I remain your business analyst.

The PDF version of this series will be ready and made available before the end of the week for downloads.

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 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!

THE CONCEPT OF SHEKINAH

In order to help understand the specific manifestations of God's glory it is important to understand the frequently used term, Shekinah.

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 …

ARE YOU TRUE TO YOUR CALLING? | Pastor E.A Adeboye

There are many people in ministry today who are going off track because they are operating in areas wherein they were not called.  Some out of personal ambition, are operating in callings that are not theirs while others are innocently operating in the wrong callings out of concern.

Having a burden about something or seeing a need does not automatically translate to a calling!

“And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully.”                 2 Timothy 2:5 KJV
According to the above Bible verse, anyone who does things outside the will of the Master will be disqualified.

Everyone who God has called is scored by Him!

If what you are doing is outside God’s calling for your life, no matter how good you are in that calling or ministry, it is regarded as irrelevant.

Paul was greatly burdened by how the Jews were walking outside the will of God.

He kept preaching to them, yet they were persecuting him.

The greatest persecution he got were from the…
