LITTLE IN MY HANDS.


Have you ever been in that position where what is in your hands doesn't seem enough? 
When the little in your hands cannot make it work as you still feel like there is not enough in your life and nothing in your hands and yet you see some persons with little in their hands.

I will like you relax as I take you through the little in your hands you are not seeing save you utilizing.


2 Kings 4:1-7
4 The wife of a man from the company of the prophets cried out to Elisha, "Your servant my husband is dead, and you know that he revered the Lord. But now his creditor is coming to take my two boys as his slaves."
2 Elisha replied to her, "How can I help you? Tell me, what do you have in your house?"
"Your servant has nothing there at all," she said, "except a little oil."
3 Elisha said, "Go around and ask all your neighbors for empty jars. Don't ask for just a few. 4 Then go inside and shut the door behind you and your sons. Pour oil into all the jars, and as each is filled, put it to one side."
5 She left him and afterward shut the door behind her and her sons. They brought the jars to her and she kept pouring. 6 When all the jars were full, she said to her son, "Bring me another one."
But he replied, "There is not a jar left." Then the oil stopped flowing.
7 She went and told the man of God, and he said, "Go, sell the oil and pay your debts. You and your sons can live on what is left." [New International Version]

I want to strategically break down the scriptures above relating it with the older post where we shared Samson’s view of nothing in my hands.
The widow had something little in the house, the house here represents her life but the creditor is coming to take her boys away as slave, thereby making the little in her hands seem like nothing. That was the reason she replied Elisha in verse 2 when he asked how can I help you? What do you have in your house (life)? 
He was asking her – How can I help you bring down the spirit of God upon what is in your Life (house) mightily as in the case of Samson.

This is revealing that we grow from nothing in our hands through reconciliation of the little in our house(life). 

You attract divine helpers who give or help deliver what is in your destiny package through reconciliation. 
Remaining in the state of nothing in my hands is a state that needs the divine intervention of God – i.e. the spirit of God coming mightily upon you by force or even without your permission.

The widow in verse 2 replied: ‘Your servant has nothing at home at all’, except a little oil – this revealed the definition of little. The little oil cannot solve what’s on ground, it can’t bring the creditors fee to redeem her boys of a truth but it can be multiplied! 

HOW TO USE THE LITTLE IN MY HANDS.
Go and ask all your neighbours for empty jars. Don’t ask for just a few, then go inside and shut the door behind you and your sons. Pour oil into all the jars.
Few instructions there:
-  Attract help: The little in your hands is placed there to attract help – to attract destiny help and helpers. Your neighbours (since house = our life, then neighbours = helpers)

-  Don’t ask for just a few: the little in your hands will be multiplied according to what you ask because they are your helpers (neighbours) they will give as much as is in your destiny package.

-  Shut the door behind you: i.e. put behind you the ideology of little in my hands. Its a process of Solitude where the spirit of God comes upon you mightily to turn the little into what you alone cannot handle.
                           .
-  Pour oil into all jars: make use of every opportunity destiny has to offer you. All the jars are what your life is dependent on! If you refuse to use a jar, it leaves your life ajar.

Followed those procedures, she went and told the Man of God and he said Go, sell the oil and pay your debts. You and your Sons can live on what is left.
In whatever way you use your little, you live on what’s left.
If you refuse to use a jar, it leaves your life ajar!

I pray you the grace to make use of the little in your life till abundance be found in your life.

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 …
