WHAT IS YOUR TASTE? – THIRST!



Good day blog reader. Without taking much of your time i write you this article with a vital message conveying information about our April’s Holy Ghost Meeting taking place on the 16th of April(Easter Sunday). If you are within Lagos and Ogun State of Nigeria, this is a must not miss event for you.

I give you my word after the Holy-ghost meeting, I will be back with principle number 4. I hope you have been making good use of Principle 1 - 3?

TASTE VS THIRST!

Taste – A strong liking



Every one of us have a strong liking for one thing or the other, we call it our taste generally especially in the aspects of decision making and other vital elements that make up our life as a whole. E.g. we have our taste of delicacies, taste of environment, taste of friends, taste of a partner to look out for.... etc But I have come today to remind you of a fact.  Irrespective of differences, there is something that is basic and universal and that is Thirst! - A strong desire for something.

To further clarify the gist; I will be using water as a physiological need.
All of us do thirst at a point of use in our daily and individual activities. We all come to that point of dehydration and not deprivation because we are in use and not being used. And one basic answer to that situation is - 💧 !
 At this point in our lives, a lot of us fail to differentiate our taste from thirst, our likes from desire , our need from wants. While trying to fill our thirst, a lot of us go for drinks other than water. We give it all the justification we can, saying it’s carbonated, enriched with minerals, contains glucose and all, but at the end we end up thirsty still and not tasty as we satisfied our taste and not our thirst!


This analogy is applicable to our lives too. Irrespective of our taste, what we all need is what solves our thirst.

Philippians 4:19King James Version (KJV)

19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.


There is a provision for that particular need you are thirsty for….. If only you can visit the water. 
The only solution to your taste is the living waters and that is Jesus Christ.

John 4:10-14King James Version (KJV)

10 Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.
11 The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living water?
12 Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle?
13 Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:
14 But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.


He’s calling you again like he did before..........

John 7:37King James Version (KJV)

37 In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.

MANIPULATION

Manipulation is a strong word or subject in this generation yet we sit and watch the degeneration it causes to our generation everyday and in our everyday situation.
-To manipulate is to negotiate, control or influence for one’s advantage.
It’s all about using people to achieve the desired outcome.
Manipulation is more than being selfish or being self-centred. It is self-seeking!

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.
