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.

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…

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 …

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…

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.

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!
