IT'S NEVER WORTH A LIE.

Good day blog family, I welcome you to this week's biblical exposition.

Today's blogspot will solely be an interpretation of a passage in the scriptures and over here I'm using the KJV.
Genesis 26:1-14.

Its a passage about a man called Isaac, the firstborn of us all. The lie he told to protect Rebekah his wife and the consequences.

The aim of this study is to apply the lesson learnt from the passage in our everyday life and help us discover our Life is never worth a Life.
Nothing in your life as a child of God is worth a lie irrespective of the reason's you're most tempted to lie.

Lie(according to wordweb): A statement that deviates from or perverts the truth.

Let me biblically breakdown the above definition.
A  lie is a statement that deviates from/perverts the truth(Jesus Christ).
Jesus Christ is the truth, way and life. (John14:6a).
Therefore a lie is a statement(a communication be it oral/written) that deviates(turn aside) or turn away from the truth.

What statement are you uttering? What is your life communicating to the world?

Anytime you communicate orally/written wise and turn away/aside from the truth(Jesus Christ) then you turn to the lie(Devil)- the father of all lies/liars (John 8:44 Kjv) and I'll like to remind you that our lives were called from on the platform of truth, your destiny is written on the truth therefore it takes only the truth to accomplish it.
When we tell lies we turn away from the scripts of our lives and start acting what was not intended by the author- God.
No wonder the scriptures we read earlier called Jesus- the truth, the way and life because everything was conceived in truth and only the true to the truth walks the way that leads to life.

In summary to lie is to die!

We'll discuss three out of the nuggets for this post and the rest will be discussed next week.
Back to Genesis 26:1-14.

Verse 1: There was famine in the land beside the famine that was in the day's of Abraham(Isaac's father).

#1. There can always be repetitions of situations in our lives. We are sometimes faced with the battles our father's fought and mostly challenges of life similar to the ones our parents went through show up in our lives.
The only way out is not always a lie.
As much as the blessings of generations are passed down so the curses.

Verse 2: The Lord appeared unto him, and said, go not down into Egypt;

#2. Woe unto those who go to Egypt for help( Isaiah 31:1a).
The saving grace of Christ is so powerful and possessing that it does not permit you to go for help outside of HimNo other place of help is the truth, only Jesus is the way!
Follow this way and have life- 'dwell in the land which I shall tell thee of:'

Check out the promises of God for Isaac if he follows the way(verses 3-5.)

Verse 6: Isaac did obey. He dwelt in Gerar. How much of God do you obey?
I'm not talking of the 10 commandments now, I'm talking about personal instructions from the Lord for your Life.

#3. Sometimes obedience brings more troubles, trials and temptations than we ever thought.
How honest are you with the Lord? It's not worth a lie! Stay where He has asked you to, dwell in the land he has shown/placed you.
Are you in the relationship He told you to go into?
Are you studying the course He wants you to?
Are you practising the profession He wants you to Practise?

Remember Isaac had to dwell in Gerar if those promises made by God were to come to pass.

Till same time next week.

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
