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 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!

Spiritual Interaction has to do with interaction with s…

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 …
