THINGS YOU NEED IN 2016- KNOW YOURSELF I - THE IMAGE.

1 John  4:6 We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

Yesterday we discussed about Knowing Him and I bless God on how he helped us understand Him the more and how far He has helped us interpret His words.
Genesis  1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
I want to outline this topic into 3:
(a) You are in the image of God
(b) You are after His likeness
(c) You have dominion.
A. The Image of God


Genesis  1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

I made use of this verse of the scripture intentionally to clear the mentality that women being created out of men equals a limit in their abilities, the truth remains every man a head of the woman but the woman has the fullness of God also.
That's the reason God called her a help meet. She can offer what a man needs. So to all my female blog readers- You are in His image! All God can do you can do too.
If you look back in verse 26; God said "lets make man in our image". Our image here refers to the trinity with the Godhead intention, i.e you have the nature of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy spirit.
'I want you to come to the realization that you have the nature of the Trinity, you do not share the nature.'

That's the reason we are called gods; we are sons of God.(Psalms 82:6), Jesus called us friends- He said greater works than He did we shall do if we believe.(John14:12). No wonder He came to the world to die for all sinners so that His nature will not be found in  hell.

The Holy spirit is our comforter- Word-web dictionary defines a comforter as a person who reduces the intensity (e.g. of fears) and calm and pacifies.

You only comfort who you know and when you know what is happening in the person's life. 

'The Holy spirit is never our sympathizer as English language might say A Comforter= Sympathizer.
In the course of writing this up, the Holy spirit gave me a clearer view/ interpretation of who we are. He told me in my ears we are images of Him entrusted with the task of carrying out what God should have always visited the earth to do

No wonder after He created Adam and Eve, He told us to be fruitful and multiply.
Adam and Eve carried out the creation of Cain and Abel that God should have done by visiting the earth.
Ye are gods; Gods image.

How much do you use your God deposited ability?
God gave us brains and that Physique so He could rest. How do you make use of it?
You have the solution inside of you. You are your solution! You are all you need.
Let me dwell more on this a bit.

Elijah in I kings 18:21-40 had some issues to be clarified with the prophets of Baal, in verses 32-38 Elijah prepared 12 stones, built an altar, made a trench about the altar, put woods in order, and filled it up with 12 barrels of water. It was after this he prayed/ called unto God and fire came down.
Elijah used his brain and physique, he made use of his God-given image before he called on God. Elijah had prepared what God will burn.

Most of us don't want to manifest as the image of God at all, we want God to get the stones, make the altar, arrange the woods and still send down the fire! No God won't do that, He awaits you to know yourself enough as an image of Him.
Start using your God given deposits as from date.
I hope you have a nice day and do not recover from the consciousness of you being in the image of God.

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

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.

DID JOHN THE BAPTIST REALLY EAT INSECTS(LOCUST)?

His name was divinely given. It was to be “John” ( Luke 1:13 ), which derives from a Hebrew term signifying “Jehovah is gracious.” He was known familiarly as “ the Baptist ” (bearing no relation to the modern sect), which simply means “an immerser , one who administers the rite of immersion” ( Matthew. 3:1; 11:11; .. ). The Jewish historian Josephus even refers to John by this designation (Antiquities 18.5.2). The importance of John in the divine scheme of things probably is summed up best in the testimony of Jesus himself. “ Among them that are born of women there has not arisen a greater than John the Baptist ” ( Matthew 11:11 ). Luke does say of John: “ And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, and was in the deserts till the day of his showing unto Israel ” ( Luke 1:80 ).  This desert (or deserted) area “stretches from Jerusalem and Bethlehem eastward some 20 miles down to the Jordan River and th e Dead Sea.” It is “a barren region of rugged hills and valleys” (Earle, 30
