LIFE IN THE SPIRIT

Respiration is not synonymous with breathing. Every cell in our body has built in ‘powerhouses’ called Mitochondria that release energy.
These power houses depend on oxygen brought into the body through breathing. So breathing is absolutely necessary for respiration to take place, and the respiration process is essential for energy to be released so the body can function and take another breathe.

From time to time, God visits his people and pours out His spirit. In the Old and New Testaments, the same word is used to describe God’s visitation. The Hebrew “ruach” and Greek “pneuma” both mean ‘breathe’.
- God breathes on his people and God’s spirit is the same as his breath.

In the same way that our breathing oxygen releases energy in our bodies, God’s breathing into us releases energy of His spirit in our lives.

Have you seen a petulant child decide to hold his breath until his parents give in and let him have his way?
- The child doesn’t know he will pass if he doesn’t breathe (so his threat isn’t all that threatening), and that his body’s reflexes will push him to breathe even if he thinks he doesn’t want to.
Same with our life as a body; our emotional; financial, psychological life and all.; then reflexes pushes us to breathe even if we think we don’t want to!

Why then do we sometimes resist spiritual breathe when it takes more effort to resist breathing than to just do it!

God is ready to breathe into us, yet we lock our lips shut. When we do that, God has to take drastic action to get us breathing again.
God wants the very power of heaven to be loosed in our lives, and it comes by spiritual respiration.

Right now, we are talking about normal healthy breathing, not hyperventilating.
Today’s Christian Community has a strange continuum when it comes to spiritual breathing:
(a) You have some who take a gulp of air every two minutes or so just to stay alive but not really to do anything else.
(b) There are those who suck in air as if it were going to cease to exist any moment now. These people soon get air-sick and need to lie down.
(c) A thick kind of breather gets it right: The Runner.

Someone who is in shape and can run great distances has developed a discipline in breathing.
A natural; deep breath refreshes the runner’s entire body with any inhalation, and clear the lungs with every exhalation. This is the life of the spiritually fit.

What will you do with His breathe?
We all need to respire. We need to breathe in God.
You are not thinking about breathing right now, are you?
If you are something is not right!

You RESPIRE to be INSPIRED.
When you do not respire you expire!

Walking with God should be as automatic as the respiratory process. We need to learn what it means to walk in the Spirit, as Paul puts it.

Walk and breathe at the same time – Can you do it?

Do you long to be spiritually fit?
You must run after God! If you want to run after God you will have to learn to breathe deeply of His breathe.

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.

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?

DO NOT SEEK A SIGN!

2 KINGS 3:17 KJV For thus saith the LORD, Ye shall not see wind, neither shall ye see rain; yet that valley shall be filled with water, that ye may drink, both ye, and your cattle, and your beasts.

God's word to us is relevance and guiding light as to how God will have it be is that we do not seek a sign for this month's wonder!

1 Corinthians 1:22  For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom.

But,
Ye are Christ! (1 Corinthians 3:23)

You are the sign of the wonder, you are the miracle says the Lord.

Most  supernatural operation around our life's this month will not call for attention like the bones in the valley! (Ezekiel 37)

Therefore Be still and known that I am God (Psalm 46: 12)

Welcome to March!

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?
