IT’S TIME TO CALL IT QUIT

Covenant of Life

A prudent man sees danger and takes refuge, but the simple keeps going and suffer for it (Proverbs 22:5)

I will like to randomly discuss this topic, trusting you will relate the words on the screen to the ramifications/ spheres of your life.
You can trust it’s a new year – 2017 (a year of Increment – only if you can break through)
according to His words to me.  There are a lot of persons out there with great expectations but they do not know how to go about the manifestations. Out of my busy schedule, I pray the Holy spirit helps and inspires me to give out on a series some principles on how we can all breakthrough for Increment.
It’s Time to call it Quit!!
Think about year 2016, reconcile your plans/visions and the results. A lot of persons did not get a commensurate yield. Take a pause as we get 2017 rolling:
  • Firstly, if you had plans for 2016 that you did not make and are still worth it, it’s time to re-enlist them.
  • Secondly, list out the new revolutions for the year.
  • Lastly, for the reason of this write-up, we settle the issue of fear. – How is it going to happen??

How it is going to happen is not actually your business, what is really your business is what do I do to make it happen? And one of those things is..... Quit!!

I acronym Q                                    Quick
                   U                                     Understanding
                    I                                      In
                    T                                     Times

It’s time to look back quick and quit. It’s time to look into our life till 2016 as regards the re-enlisted visions and take away what’s made them impossible.

Isn’t it funny how sometimes: We pray and we do not get results – but through revelations,I have come to understand our prayers get answered through subtractions. Take for example, a young person keeps asking God for Money,God answers him by taking away greed!

Year 2017 is a year of increment if only we will breakthrough – If only we will quit what we need to quit!
When we quit what we need quit, then God answers our prayers like we expect. I mean a young man without greed will make more money gradually.

Let me just stir the waters here with basic examples to what we need to quit in three spheres of our life:

Emotionally:          

  • It’s time to quit running after those that are not seeing you.
  • It’s time to define open relationships that have taken a while in your life.
  • It’s time to quit emotional affiliations that are not investing in you. 
  • It’s time to stop complaining and love more.

Financially:         

  • It’s time to quit pleasing people, giving to those that can give back to us.
  • It’s time to quit robbery in – Tithes, Offerings & Alms.
  • It’s time to quit spending all, and save.
  • It’s time to quit thinking you have your spending power.

Spiritually:         

  •  It’s time to quit activities and be involved in a walk with your Creator & Saviour
  •  It’s time to quit attending events that do not enrich your soul.
  •  It’s time to quit messages/songs/videos/articles/posts that do not draw you close to CHRIST.
  •  It’s time to quit that religion and live the real way of life – Christianity.

Remember what He told me: Only if you’ll breakthrough will there be Increment. I will leave you with this succinct quote: Only if you Quit it will not be Neat!

Happy New Year.

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.

KAIROS: THE MYSTERY OF TIME

At the very beginning of Jesus’ earthly ministry  Jesus tells of a great opportunity: God’s kingdom is within our reach. To enter the kingdom, however, we must go through a process of REPENTANCE and BELIEF.

Mark 1:14‭-‬15 KJV‬‬: Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God,  And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.

Through this process we learn how:
-To lay down our lives
-Pick up the cross
-Follow Jesus into the kingdom

These three highlights aren’t steps but a circle that represents our Journey into the kingdom of God and time: the kairos moments in our lives which is the portal through which we enter into Kingdom living.

What is a Kairos Moment? 
A portal (access) through which we enter into dimensions of results. It is a moment and moments defines time just like seasons define destiny.
Eg: Jesus’ death on the cross was not a last-ditch effort on God’s  part …

BOLDNESS: the requirement for Servanthood.

While it is not scriptural to pray for faith,  you can ask God for boldness.
Very soon after the early church had received the baptism of the Holy Spirit, we see them petition for it.
-It takes Boldness to dispense the anointing  NOT just faith.
Faith is used to receive not dispense(create) in the operations of the anointing.Though the gift of faith manifests boldness too.

HOW COME THAT IDIOT IS RICH AND I AM NOT?

Here is why..,
That idiot is had an encounter with the spirit realm, an encounter with the Spirit of God not mammon. He's firstly  sure who is master is as this is the secret to a lasting financial life and destiny.

.....for it is in the office of God by His Spirit to give you the power to make wealth (Deuteronomy 8:18 emphasis added) but you have to remember Him(God).

SERVANTHOOD

2 Peter 1:1 – Simon Peter,  a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ.
The Apostle Peter’s first letter was a message of encouragement, instruction and admonition to the Christians who were scattered throughout Asia minor.

Even though he was part of Jesus' inner circle and was a pillar in the early church , he opens his letter by calling himself a servant.



This shows you that it doesn’t matter how long you have been a Christian or how mightily the Lord used to,  you are always a servant.
