HOW MUCH DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOU KNOW?

Good evening blog readers, how has been your day??

Today I want to discuss the final part of the series we have been discussing- Know more!
If you missed yesterday's edition on what do you know, read here.

How much you know the truth defines your degree of freedom. - Freedom in all ramifications of life; spiritually, financially, mentally, emotionally to mention but a few.

Let me just use this as a spiritual proof of what we have been discussing, do well to read along with me.

In the Garden of Eden, the serpent came up with what Adam and Eve knew but they failed even with how much they knew. They obviously knew the truth but they failed knowing more!!

Here's the dialogue:
Serpent: God said, ye shall not eat the tree of the garden?
Eve: We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden but of the fruit of the tree in the midst of the garden; God saith Ye shall nor eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.
Eve knew the truth so the serpent, but the enemy uses what you know against you and it's left for you to use the known to say No!

..... Lets continue:
Serpent: Ye shall not surely die. For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, your eyes shall be opened and ye shall be as God knowing good and evil.
What good and evil do they need to know other than  the eat this and don't eat this? The serpent knew more than Eve and he used her lack of information against her. 'My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge-Hosea 4:6a'.

Adam and Eve refused to know more, they never for once ask God some further questions. 'Ask and it shall be given'- Matt 7:7 is not for prayers alone, Informations are included!!

The woman could not argue any further because she's exhausted all she knew!! The next thing was the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise!!

How come?? 
When you are not fully informed on what you know... Every way seems the way!!
She took the fruit thereof and did eat and gave also unto her husband and he did eat.
After how many days of living in the garden?? After encounters with God every evening?? 
She just discovered all these false qualities about the tree.

You cannot be empty, it's either you know the truth that makes you free 
or 
the lies that keep you in bondage.

Dear reader, have you ever thought of what would have happened if Eve had an answer to the serpents' last statement?
How beautiful would it have been for us all if Adam knew enough to query Eve about the fruit?
They were limited by their limitations (in knowledge)

In how many ways/ how much have you limited yourself by your limits, by how much you know?
Our failure to know more makes us become limited by our limits also and Life is much more than(just) living by what you know with your mind.

Lastly, You are known for what you know and remembered for how much you know it!!

Adam and Eve are known for bringing the world into the state in which it is, Jesus Christ is known for bringing salvation into the world.
What will you be known for??

I therefore charge you today that you deeply thirst to know more to make our lives a better one and the world 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.

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

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!

HOW DO YOU AMAZE JESUS?

Today we want to scripturally study a man who did amaze Jesus. To amaze  someone is to fill the person with wonder/astonishment; greatly surprise. You can bet it will be such great things that will amaze Jesus right? Yes it should be. Someone amazed Jesus and it brought about his miracle.  In every day and aspects of our life, we also amaze Jesus but there’s always the others side of a coin. Let’s study:

GLORIFICATION

What is glorification according to the Bible? Glorification is the theological term used to describe the final removal of sin from the lives of Christians at the end of time. Dictionaries generally define glorification as a state of high or heightened honour. In biblical studies, however, glorification exists as one of three parts of the process of the Christian life that includes justification (being made right with God), sanctification (the ongoing process of being made holy), and glorification (the final removal of sin).
