TRANSFORMATIONAL GIFTS




Gift: Something acquired without compensation. A natural ability or quality. The act of giving.

Romans 12:3King James Version (KJV)

For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.

Apostle Paul in the verse above is saying: For I say through the grace given to me.  
This reveals to us a grace is given to everyone and of such grace is the transformational gift.

Grace is an access to the kingdom. It is relative to the dimension and the realities of the kingdom you operate.

The challenge with the transformed is: we refuse to hold unto the grace(access), we pursue ownership which is the world’s standard. E.g. Everyone calls me Tobi ‘Biyi and we all know by the grace of God I am the Lead Partner of Covenant of Life - access! 
We’ve got to have a leader friends.  
Ownership is when I go as far as referring to myself as the CEO, Lead Pastor or the Apostle over Covenant of Life - Ownership!

What ownership does is; they relate and revere me as a Lead Partner whereas in access/enablement I am zero because my chain of supply is being cut off., I am not even an Associate partner in the organogram of Access not to talk of Leading!
-          Have you not seen Situations where a member is greater in performance than the Lead person? Transformational gifts!!

Romans 12:3b; says not to think of yourself more highly than you ought to think.

Thus, all of us have gifts but they differ according to the measure of Grace God has dealt with us. How does God deal with us or what is the measure?
It is VALUE – How much we use our gifts. Remember the parable of the Talents? (Matthew 25:14-30). This is the mystery to a valued Individual and one without value.


What then are the gifts of Transformation?

Romans 12:6-8King James Version (KJV)

Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith;
Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching;
Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness.

Prophecy   Ministry   Teaching   Exhortation   Giving   Leadership   Mercy.


Do note that these gifts are not equal/the same with the gifts of the spirit (I Corinthians 12)
Transformational gifts are Value Added Gifts in the life of Christians. The gifts of the spirit are for the 5 – fold ministry.

How do I mean?
Prophecy? Prophesy in proportion to your faith
Ministry? Use it in our ministering
Using the above gifts, I have beforehand validated the fact that transformation is never about you but others. I said it in a quote: Transformation is not what happens to you but what happens to the world through you.

Thus, the gifts are not for you but for others. They just add value to you.
It is the values that are added to you (suddenly) that opens the platform for influence.

Remember I once said this: There are no useless persons, we only have a Use-Less or Use-Lest individual. Transformational gifts are saying to you today; It’s not about being in use, it’s about the value added into others that results into you being Valued!

And how are you valued? 
When you add value to others. This comes by access not ownership. For example, a lot of young Christians want to be called a Prophet(Ownership); they want the gifts badly, they attend our holy ghost meetings and return home disappointed. 
You know why?
Prophesy is a transformational gift. My ability to realize this and just yield to God conforming to the only requirement which is Jesus; the Christ provides me the grace(gift) to Prophesy. So, I do not need to be a prophet to prophesy!!

Value comes from God. The Gifts come only through Conformity with God not by us trying to grow into them or trying to obtain them. That will be Ownership. This is the revelation as to how transformation is a sudden change and not growth. Ownership requires you to grow. To grow I repeat!!

The measure to which these gifts are revealed in your life is directly proportional to how much you yield. How you surrender to be used for others.

Do not let’s get too spiritual about this, let’s just highlight the gifts and see them fixed as pre-explained.
1.    Prophecy: Knowledge of the future (normally said to be obtained from a divine source)
-          Prophesy: Predict/reveal through, or as if through divine inspiration.

2.    Ministry: The work of the minister of a religion

3.    Teaching: The activities of educating/instructing; activities that impart knowledge/skills.

4.    Exhortation: A communication intended to urge/persuade the recipients to take some actions.


5.    Giving: the imparting of news/promises etc.
-          Disposing of property by voluntary transfer without receiving value in return.
-          Liberality: the trait of being generous in behaviour and temperament

6.    Leadership: the activity of leading/ the ability to lead.

7.    Mercy: Leniency and compassion shown towards offenders by a person/agency charged with administering justice.
-          A disposition to be kind and forgiving.

Note as we round-up that:all of the gifts above cannot be used on yourself/for your self


but others. The only limitation to Transformational gifts is You(Self). Hope this commences a journey to the end of you(self) today?


The measure to which these gifts are revealed in your life is directly proportional to how much you yield. How you surrender to be used for others.

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…

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.

Download Spiritual Interaction 1 & 2 to understand fellowship and the levels in Intimacy(Koinonia)
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!

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…

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 …
