WHAT SUCCESS IS NOT _ PART II

Success is not reaching a goal

Motivational speaker and Minister Bob Harrison says; “Setting goals is the most dangerous thing any person can do”

Why?

When you set goal in an area, you take attention away from all others.

Too often the woman who sets out to be a vice-president by age thirty-five is a divorcee by twenty-nine or a fellow who sets out to be a pop-star will make compromises that will plaque his spirit the rest of his life.

You may attain a goal but at the same time lose everything worth living for.

It is not that setting goals are evil, but they must be balance. You must realise that attaining one goal is only a small step toward achieving more important things.

When goals become gods, they become end in themselves.

Reaching a goal can destroy you by the temptation to stagnate and the illusion of accomplishment, if you don’t have a larger purpose beyond it.

Goals must be targets and not terminal destinations.


If success is not reaching a goal, then what is success?
Success is Life. It is a life that can be lived. It’s the life you are living or the life you have refused to live. The whole of your living/life defines success or the otherwise.

Life’s most important revelation is that the journey means more than the destination.

The world is not interested in the storms you encountered, but they want to know: did you bring the ship home safely?? Success is bringing the ship home safely.

Success is Life. If you believe you can succeed – or you believe you cannot – guess what? 
You’re right!
Success is who you are.


A goal is minute to the whole of your life. Thus, success is attaining everything worth living for. Your life is important than any goal.

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 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…

GOD'S UNIVERSAL AGENDA: THE EVERLASTING KINGDOM.

There is a kingdom which transcend beyond kingdoms that are bound by time, which is ruled by vanity. This Kingdom is void of human corruption, absent of pain and hatred. This Kingdom is eternal and sovereign.
It is known as the Kingdom of God.

THE 21ST CENTURY MIRACLE

Isaiah 8:17-18
[17]And I will wait upon the LORD, that hideth his face from the house of Jacob, and I will look for him.
[18]Behold, I and the children whom the LORD hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the LORD of hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion.


God hides himself from a generation that they may seek Him. And only those that seek Him in a generation finds Him. These ones become Signs(Systems of Reference) and do Wonders!
It is only those that know(have found) their God that are: Strong(a sign)and do Exploits(Wonders)!


Thus, you are the miracle your Generation needs!

You are a sign for signs; you're supernatural.
You are a sign for wonders; you're a miracle.
You are for signs and wonders.
But do you know the miracle this century needs?


As a miracle for you to happen, you have to understand the difference between signs, wonders and miracles. The illustration attached above explains this.

Having seen thus;
1. Do not confuse the signs for all believers as mi…
