MUCH IN YOUR HANDS!

There is no doubt you must have been associating the state of having much in your hands as the richness of wealth/riches/finance etc. 


The state where you have so much in your hands that you do not seem to have a want/lack anymore, you have all your needs covered - you know what I am talking about?

But in the real sense of life does that exist?
 


Luke 12:16-21
16 And he spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully:  
17 And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits?  
18 And he said, This will I do:  I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods.   
19 And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years;  take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry.   
20 But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee:  then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?  
21 So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.  

The Yoruba tribe of Nigeria have a saying that: 
‘Money is not always enough money in the hands of the owner’.
Of a truth, there might not be a state of much in your hands but there is the state of the feeling – I mean much!
 Let’s study as this scripture above opens our eyes to something so important.
-  The ground of a certain rich man yielded plentifully: this is reflecting the state of his heart. His Life (rich man) while his ground (his Life) yielded plentifully.
This can be written as: The Life of a certain rich man yielded......

-  And he thought,: the state of his richness was as a result of his thoughts i.e. his heart.
The state of your heart reveals if of a truth your life is reconcilable. I earlier stated that the reconciliation of what you want from the Lord and what is in your Life is what is revealed in your hands. Reconciliation only happens when what is in your hands is directly proportional to what is in your heart.

-  What he wanted from the Lord was Nil! – he identified not his purpose so what was in his life was not come upon by the spirit of the Lord such that he had no room to store what his life yielded.
That is to say, when we pursue our will or whatever is not of His will then we have no place to store them.

Our destiny does not accommodate what is not in its package!

-  I will build greater barns: He had to desire a plan to sustain and again his thought of much in his hands came in. ‘And I will say to my soul, soul, you have many goods laid up for many years;  take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry. 
The thought is; he did it by himself even though that is the truth in this scenario and that is what I have come to discuss.
The state of much in your hands; is the state of seeing yourself and not God! It’s the state of your imaginations. But we need to know this; 
we cannot exhaust our destiny package OR Live our destiny to the last and be alive- You can only Leave your destiny and exist.

We are our destiny, when our destiny is exhausted – so ourselves!

But God's response: Fool!
He was called a fool because he refused to live his destiny, he failed to reconcile his thoughts and what was in his hands. He didn't acknowledge the Spirit of God.
This night your Soul will be required of you; then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided? 

We can’t live on our promises/effort/struggles, our provision cannot sustain us but His!

So is he who lays up treasure for himself, and is not rich towards God.
Are you rich towards God?
Today is the day of reconciliation........
 What is in your hands and what is the state of your heart??
I rest my Case.

Get prepared dear reader, the kick-off edition of our  events in the South-western part of Nigeria with the central theme; There is a God! will be coming up soon.It promises to be great with details coming your way soonest.

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?

DO NOT SEEK A SIGN!

2 KINGS 3:17 KJV For thus saith the LORD, Ye shall not see wind, neither shall ye see rain; yet that valley shall be filled with water, that ye may drink, both ye, and your cattle, and your beasts.

God's word to us is relevance and guiding light as to how God will have it be is that we do not seek a sign for this month's wonder!

1 Corinthians 1:22  For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom.

But,
Ye are Christ! (1 Corinthians 3:23)

You are the sign of the wonder, you are the miracle says the Lord.

Most  supernatural operation around our life's this month will not call for attention like the bones in the valley! (Ezekiel 37)

Therefore Be still and known that I am God (Psalm 46: 12)

Welcome to March!

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?
