SOLITUDE

Good p.m blog family?
How has been your day??
Had a great and tiresome day over here, but out of no time I carefully selected this write-up by a Man of God and carefully develop it as a Child of God.. I hope that made you smile??
Solitude: A state of Social isolation and The state or situation of being alone.

Practicing the act of Solitude is not something many Christians are familiar with. However, it is as old as our Christian faith itself and it is a necessity for any Christian who craves a successful walk with God, and the fulfillment of His purpose here on earth.
 After carefully meditating through, below I list some reasons why solitude is important to your faith.

1. Jesus Practised it.
Matthew  14:23 And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was there alone.

Luke  6:12 And it came to pass in those days, that he went out into a mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God.

Jesus was always alone with God. He finds time for himself and God isolating himself socially which we also as His children must emulate because of the following reasons:
(a) It provides you with an opportunity to be alone with God.
This kind of practise is more than needed, necessary and recommended for a closer walk with God and for a smooth journey through destiny. It's being alone with God and not with the multitude.
You could still go to a meeting or prayer retreat with many people which is also important, but I want to believe you'll agree with me it cannot be better than being alone with God.
(b) It is always a place of revelations.
When a man is alone on solitude, God often reveals himself to them.
Luke  9:28 And it came to pass about an eight days after these sayings, he took Peter and John and James, and went up into a mountain to pray. 
9:29 And as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered, and his raiment was white and glistering. 
9:30 And, behold, there talked with him two men, which were Moses and Elias:  9:31 Who appeared in glory, and spake of his decease which he should accomplish at Jerusalem.
1 Kings  19:11 And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the LORD. And, behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the LORD; 

(c) God opens the Heavens and shows us His plans.
That's the reason Jesus practised Solitude; to be able to see into the heavenly realms (Note i did not say spiritual realms.) He could do only what He sees the father do. Nothing else!
Where do you learn the things you do?
Where do you learn how you do the things you do??
 When we practise Solitude, God opens the doors of Heaven and He allows us to see into His plans and into the future. We find ourselves in those state of confusion because we refuse to isolate ourselves socially!!
Without Solitude, questions like; why am i here on earth? What am i sent on earth to do? What career has God destined me? Who am i to marry? And all those things will keep re-occurring in our lives.

2. Everything precious is always given birth to in solitude- Even Human Life.
On a more domestic front, the most precious entity in the world is human life.
A careful examination of the process of conception of human life takes us to a place of solitude as well. A man and a woman have to get to a place of privacy and solitude for them to be able to conceive. That tells us that when man also in the same way gets together with his creator in solitude conception takes place.
Solitude with God is a place for pregnancy.
 
This is also a place to receive great ideas, and creative ideas from God.
Everything precious is always given birth to in solitude!!

When man gets to be alone either with himself, another person or with his creator, creation becomes possible. For example the great artist, minds, writers and even Men of God all got their inspirations mainly during their time of solitude. People like Beethoven, Thomas Edison, Sir Isaac Newton,
Ben Carson, T. D Jakes, Sunday Adelaja, Samuel Adeyemi, Paul Adefarasin, Enoch Adeboye and Oluwatobiloba Oshunbiyi(With faith) regularly practise solitude and that is why they are able to give birth to great things. Hence, all great things come through solitude!!

3. Solitude is a place for purification for man.
A place where man changes from his sinful nature and puts on the nature of God, I hope you remember the quote;  
 'You become what you be/ have been with'- Oluwatobi Oshunbiyi
It is a place of transfiguration.(Matthew 17:1-3.)
The glory of God descends on an individual that practices solitude and changes his nature by the glory of God. How many times will you keep living in that same sin you're tired of??
Now is the time to isolate yourself from the socials- the media, internet, gatherings, parties, associations etc.

I want you to start something as from date; a 10% of your 24 hours being given to God in Solitude i.e 2hours:40minutes.

I pray you the grace of solitude in Christ as from today in Jesus Name.
Remain blessed!

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.

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
