THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD.


This material aims to educate you on the operation of God’s presence helping you differentiate it from the rewards of His presence.

The rewards of His presence:
These are bye-products of His presence that we most times call results in our physical realm.
We most times describe them as spiritual but in their selves they aren’t.
They are the things we can relate with in our realms here(the physical realm) – healing; miracles of all kinds that can be seen, felt, smelt and touched!

Psalm 97:5 – The mountains melt like wax at the presence of the LORD, at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth (NKJV)




The mountains here represent all forms of challenge and what so ever you might love to affix. The scripture informs us they melt as a bye-product of the operation of His presence. This operation is the Mystery behind His presence. The melting is a reward!

....,at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth
What does this mean?
There is a dimension of the presence of the Lord of the whole earth you must catch as an individual and funnily, the proportion you catch determines the dimension you operate. I mean the rewards of His presence you get. 

Daniel 1:32b: ....they that know their God: they shall be strong and do exploits.

This is really knowing God – His presence has to be known and not felt. The rewards of His presence  is what we feel, see and hear – the mountains that melt which we can feel but we have to first come to know!                     
The result of His presence  is a resultant effect of the God you have known.
- we have been trained and fashioned according to our realms even in the body of Christ. We always cannot relate with what we cannot perceive(by our physical sense) yet we claim we are spiritual.
So, even the spiritual ones among us do not know the presence of the Lord till they feel sensations like goose bumps and claim that was His presence – No!

The presence of the Lord has to be known(personally and in person). It is when this is known that you can be strong(because you are not doing feelings but you know. You gain strength on the ground of convictions) and then you do exploits!
- There is a revelation here I want you to catch. The rewards of His presence is still tied to us.

That the mountains did melt like wax at the presence of the Lord...  Doesn’t make it automatic!
Jesus Christ revealed: if only you will speak to the mountain (Matthew 11:23. 17:20) NOT because you felt a goose bump but because it’s now personal. You have met with Him many times in the secret place: You have spoken to him many times and He responded, why not a mountain?

You have come to know Him – like Adam knew his wife(Genesis 4:1). Though the knowing here contextually was a sexual intercourse, you have come to have an intercourse too.

Can you now see why most times the ones who do the exploits are Men of God.                          
They understand the operations, you only see the rewards of his presence. You see the miracles!

I call you up higher today.
The presence of the Lord truly is a mystery but it can be explained and lived.
Do not live in ignorance or deception.
There is a way men meet God – I show this to you in the next post.  Till then, begin to dig your wells.
Cry out to Him,  He awaits you!

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 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 …

IS HEAVEN THE THRONE OF GOD?

Psalm 11:4: The Lord is in His holy temple; the LORD's throne IS IN Heaven; His eyes behold, His eyelids test the sons of men.

This verse separate the Lord's throne from Heaven but opens our eyes to an operation; a modus - operandi. The Lord's throne IS IN HEAVEN!

An Estate as a case study!
I do not live in an Estate; I currently dwell in the cave adullam as we speak but you'd hear a couple of person say "I live in Harmony Estate" as an example but this individual's house is literally "in" [inside] the Estate. For example; House #24, Harmony Estate...

It is on this basis I exclaimed "Heaven is not God's throne!" in the message THE MYSTERY CALLED MAN.

There is Heaven and God has a throne!
I stand today boldly that God has a literal throne, but He created Heaven someday and thus, the throne existed before Heaven.

After the creation of the Heaven and the Earth...
The Heavens by the activity of men causes the throne of God to be operate…

SHOULD WOMEN COVER THEIR HAIRS IN CHURCH?

It is common practice for some women to cover their heads when they go to church. Others cover their heads when praying. Since 1 Corinthians 11:4-6 states that women should cover their heads when praying, several questions arise:
Did the apostle Paul refer to a cultural situation where women wore a head covering? Should women cover their hairs and if so, with what?                                                                  Was Paul addressing the situation of women praying or prophesying in the church or outside the church?1 Corinthians 11:4-5 states that all women should cover HEADS not HAIR when praying!

To understand this better, Download the Podcast:  Should Women Cover their Hairs in Church 
Meaning of the Words “Head” and “Uncovered”
1 Corinthians 11:4-6 appears to some to teach that women should wear a scarf or something else on their heads. However, the question is where?

Every man who has something on his head while praying or prophesying disgraces his head. But every woman…

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!
