THE PAST!

Still on the series: The New Life Now!!

2 Corinthians 5:17King James Version (KJV)
17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

"If any man", the word any man here is stressing the fact that God is not interested in who the man is. Not your personality but your past!

"Be in Christ": Attitude in the context of this and not Position!
You left something or a place to be in Christ. That's what He cares about, Your attitude towards the past. The past is passed away but are they truly passed away or just packed away for a while?

While developing this write-up,a quote strike my mind as usual, 
"Even the Best of us had a Past that didn't Last!". 
The best of us?? 
Yes those we regard as the best of us had a past also. 

You were expecting me to say "Even the worst of us" isn't it??. There are no worst nor best of us we only have attitudinal differences. God is no respecter of persons (Acts 10: 34), God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace to the humble (James4:6) its all about Attitude!

Still talking on the issue of Past, Word-web dictionary defines past as:

A. The Time that has elapsed.
Its elapsed, its passed away, its gone! But what's still your attitude towards it. Its gone but a lot of us won't just Let it go or let go.

The time has elapsed, its no more in existence - but how do you react to it now?
Like......... "If you leave the past in the past, it remains a Past-Tense, bring it into your life Now; it become a Past-Test!"
Its all about you, Your attitude!

B. A earlier period in someones life(especially one that they have reason to keep secret.)
I'll be breaking this into to parts:

i. A earlier period in someones life: it's always early, a move beyond the past can never be late..... when God said "Those that seek me early shall find me"(Proverbs 8:17), He was talking about your attitude not time. How? No time is ever too late to leave the past: Proverbs 8:17 reveals God saying; I love them that love me - before those tat seek me early will find me.

In your life Now, How early? How early do you forget the past and move on? How early do you forgive? How early do you live for your purpose? How early do you Live you life Now??
Remember you Life Now matters and you're more than now.

ii. Especially one that they have to keep secrets: Laughing out Loud, 'we've all got secrets' i know you are muttering ... Yes!
But all secret things belong to God, the ones He revealed belong to us (Deuteronomy 29:29)
God own those secrets they are not yours!
They are washed in His Son's blood.
Those things you call you secrets were only  revelations - They are how not to do it!
The major question here is: what do you learn from them?
This is what the world call Experience!! (Its all about Attitude again).

Change your attitude and thinking pattern, even those secrets of yours were revealed. They ain't secrets, they are revelations don't let them hurt you anymore!
Enjoy Now with the right set of attitude, You are complete in Him (Colossians 2:10).


Ecclesiastes 12:14King James Version (KJV)
14 For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.

Secrets got good and evil too... Yes!!
The deed is done, it is no more reversible.
Your attitude either keeps your path good or bad.
 It's up to You friends, Choose Life! Live Now to the Fullest!!

Best of the Day.

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.

GOD'S OMNIPRESENCE AND MANIFEST PRESENCE - THE DIFFERENCE

God’s omnipresence is His attribute of being everywhere at once. He is omnipresent even when we do not experience His presence; He is here, even if we do not recognize Him. God’s manifest presence is, of course, His presence made manifest—the fact that He is with us is made clear and convincing.

DISCERNING THE MOVE OF GOD

Acts 2:17 [17]And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams God wants to move again and He needs a lot of vessels. God is not trying to repeat the same thing. He does not fail so He does not repeat. He only uses a familiar operation; a familiar move to men to progress the birth of The revival. Christianity(The Sphere of Religion) cannot export and empty itself into other spheres of influence, Men have to be exported into these spheres and the only way men will be exported is when we discern what God is trying to do and position ourselves for these moves. Our generation has to understand the synchronization between the Cyclical and the Acyclical move of God. We need to understand how these dimensions sync into each other to birth the revival.

NOTHING IN MY HANDS

Ever heard anyone say this in your ears? .......  I have nothing in my hands, nothing in my Store,   nothing in my account, no start up capital..... I have nothing, nothing!  And of a truth you will discover too that there is nothing in their hands as you have been told because there is no po inter to anything in their hands that there is anything in their life. Life has taught me per time that people live what they feel of their selves.

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 go
