SHOW ME YOUR FRIEND



In the last post, I discussed with you the word of the Lord for you in 2017 through me:
If only you will breakthrough will I increase you
 I further discussed with you the first step on our part in breaking through for increment which I titled: ‘Calling it quit’. Today I want to take you a step deeper, unveiling the second step/principle towards our increment:
Principle #2: Identify your friend.
Friend according to word web is defined a person with whom you are acquainted but I will define a friend as -a person who offends, fends and defends you.

·         Offend – Act in disregard of promises causing emotional pain.
He breaks promises, causes you emotional pain so you can realize the difference between feelings (emotions) and knowing.
·         Fend – withstand the force of something
He withstands the force of the unpleasant about you. After all, all of us have our flaws and differences
·         Defend – Protects against a challenge/attack
This might be emotionally painful at first but it’s the duty of a friend. They shield you from the things that will hurt you that you think is good for you.

These three things a friend do because: 
Faithful are the words of a friend   (Proverbs 27:6)

Who are your friends?
Who is your friend??
Show me your friend and you will be showing me: Offence,Fends&Defence =Faithfulness!!
Back to Principle#1:
Ø  After you have successfully applied the principle of calling it Quit, definitely there must be some persons left in your life. People you hold with high esteem, people that collectively make you –You!
Leaving these persons uncategorized/undiscovered is a serious issue and an error a lot of us have made years back till now and it’s high time we rectify and correct such.

Principle #2:
Ø  This is requiring of you to do a deep search according to my definition of friendship looking through the people in your life. An eye opener is in our nature. The Human nature always confuses all forms of intimate relationship with friendship.
What I mean is:
We all have a father/mother but our parent might be/not be our friend
We all have a brother/sister but our siblings might be/not be our friend
We all have a lover/admirer but our lovers might be/not be our friend
We all have a boss/subject but our Co-workers might be/not be our friend

Do not confuse an intimate/working relationship with friendship.
Breakthrough for increment as the above mentioned relationships might not be able to offend, fend and defend you.

How does Fellowship affect year 2017?

The function of a friend with its characteristics – Faithfulness deals with Information.
From now on I will not call you servants; for the servant knows not what his Lord does; but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my father I have made known to you. (John 15:5, American KJV)
Jesus called us friends because of the sensitivity of Information.
Ø  All the prophecies of increment will not come to pass if its information gets into the wrong handse.g. some so called friends will not hint you of a job opportunity which they heard and have probably applied for, So – You do not either reduce their chances / they want to be better than you in quote. You will not easily believe but you just have to believe this, that keeping such persons around can make the promise of God for a job upon your life delayed.
(Friends// Information // Increment)

Ø  Lastly, you relate some information to some persons mistaken to be your friend and we get deformed. E.g.:the one you report issues affecting your relationship/marriage to determines the result of either a bond//breakup.The one you explainthe details of yourproposed business idea to determines the success/failure.
If the words of a friend are faithful, then theword of a non-friend is unfaithful/fake-full. (Proverbs 27:6 emphasis added)
As a Coach and developer I say to you today: Show me your friend and I will tell you what 2017 has in stock for you!!

Have a great year ahead.

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 POST-CORONA WORLD

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?

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?

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!
