ARE YOU TRUE TO YOUR CALLING? | Pastor E.A Adeboye

There are many people in ministry today who are going off track because they are operating in areas wherein they were not called. 

Some out of personal ambition, are operating in callings that are not theirs while others are innocently operating in the wrong callings out of concern.

Having a burden about something or seeing a need does not automatically translate to a calling!

“And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully.”                  2 Timothy 2:5 KJV

According to the above Bible verse, anyone who does things outside the will of the Master will be disqualified.

Everyone who God has called is scored by Him!

If what you are doing is outside God’s calling for your life, no matter how good you are in that calling or ministry, it is regarded as irrelevant.

Paul was greatly burdened by how the Jews were walking outside the will of God.

He kept preaching to them, yet they were persecuting him.

The greatest persecution he got were from the Jews because God was trying to point him in the direction of his calling- the Gentiles first, then to kings and then to the children of Israel (Acts 9:15).

Had he not been so persecuted by the Jews, he would not have been able to take the gospel to as many gentiles as he did.

Thank God that in Acts 18:5-6, he finally decided to leave the Jews and go to the gentiles to whom he was primarily sent.

God calls people for a reason and if everyone were to leave their calling to attend to someone else’s, there would be trouble. Imagine someone who is called to cause a great evangelical revival being so burdened about leadership in the nation that he distracts himself by contesting elections.

Imagine what would happen if the one who is to find the cure to incurable disease were to become burdened about the economy that he gets a job in the ministry of Finance.

You need to identify your calling through the guidance of the Holy Spirit and stay in it so as to fulfill your destiny and more importantly, for the world to be a better place.

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.

Lets move on;
The Apostle Paul speaks of the variety of spiritual gifts: “Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all. . . . But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will” (I Corinthians 12:4–11).

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!

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 …

SPRITUAL GIFTS

In Christianity, a spiritual gift or charism (plural: charisms or charismata; in Greek singular: χάρισμαcharisma, plural: χαρίσματαcharismata) is an endowment which is given by the Holy Spirit.These are the supernatural graces which individual Christians need (or needed in the days of the Apostles) to fulfill the mission of the Church.
In the narrowest sense, it is a theological term for the extraordinary graces given to individual Christians for the good of others.
