SWOT SERIES: SPIRI-FINANCIAL ANALYSIS.

Good morning Monday digest readers and happy new week.
This week we'll be going into a series that will last some weeks and I promise you it'll be loaded and Interesting.
I have decided to write on a very popular topic SWOT and I know if I am just to discuss SWOT a lot of you have read different articles on it but I have come to give you something different:
The Spiri-Financial Analysis!
Today we'll be taking some introduction and next week we'll kick off on what we've got for you.


INTRODUCTION
SWOT analysis is an initialism for strengths , weaknesses , opportunities , and threats —and is a structured planning method that evaluates those four elements of a project, business venture or personality.
SWOT analysis can be carried out for a product, place, industry, or person.
And I want to believe you know here in CL Blogs we are interested in you as a person, so we'll be taking some series on how some Spiri-Financial Analysis can work it all out for you.

SWOT Analysis involves specifying the objective of the business venture or project and identifying the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable to achieve that objective.

And at this point I'll like to define some terms generally used in SWOT Analysis.
INITIALISM
1. Strengths: characteristics of the business, project or personality that give it an advantage over others
2. Weaknesses: characteristics that place the business, project or personality at a disadvantage relative to others
3. Opportunities: elements that the business, project or personality could exploit to its advantage
4. Threats: elements in the environment that could cause trouble for the business, project or personality

FACTORS 1. Internal factors – the strengths and
weaknesses internal to the business, project or personality.
Analysis may view the internal factors as
strengths or as weaknesses depending upon their effect on the business, project or personality objectives.
What may represent strengths with respect to one objective may be weaknesses (distractions, competition) for another objective.

2. External factors – the opportunities and threats presented by the environment external to the business, project or personality.
The external factors may include macroeconomic matters, technological change, legislation, and sociocultural changes, as well as changes in the marketplace or in competitive position.

It is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you can win a hundred battles without a single loss. If you only know yourself, but not your opponent, you may win or may lose. If you know neither yourself nor your enemy, you will always endanger yourself.        
-The Art of War (Sun Tzu).

All these being said I just had to come to the conclusion that:
If what appears strength may be weaknesses to another then all these can be strengths or even weaknesses depending on the position of the business/ Project/ Personality in view.

Till next week when we'll be discussing Strength, Stay financially pure!

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 SEVEN SPIRITS OF GOD

CLF - The Journey 2 The 7 spirits of God are not some seven different spirits, but 7 prophetic manifestations of the Spirit of God. Time could not afford us talk deep on this subject matter yesterday, when by the Spirit the Prayer and Warfare team led us in some prayers and declaration. Below is a detailed article on the 7 spirits of God, and the aim of this piece of information is to educate the body of Christ and also enable you pray further in understanding.

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!

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.
