WHOSE REPORT WILL YOU BELIEVE.

Whose report will you believe? ISAIAH53:1
Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers (Psalms 1:1 NIV)

The counsel
Instructions given by God comes with blessing for those that diligently follow them/obey (Zechariah 6:15) and curses for those that do the opposite (Deuteronomy 11:28).

Today’s Christians must be vigilant to know that the world has a counsel, a way and a seat or gathering.

In simple terms a counsel is an opinion, a point of view, advice or recommendation from a more experience person or a wiser person. The counsel of the world may seem right but, where do we put God’s counsel or godly counsel?
Many refuse God because the worldly counsel sounds better to their hearing and easy to work with (since the general populace does the same) or so they may not look the odd one out or look old school. Just like Jehoshaphat who did not depend on military or the opinion of the world but was eager, wanting to know what God wants (1 Kings 22:55 NIV) brethren!
Whose counsel are you seeking before you take that important decision?
"First seek the counsel of the LORD, don’t forget Absalom when he decided to follow man’s advice marked the beginning of his failure (2samuel17:14-17) although the counsel of the world may be good but still God still want us to seek his counsel.


The way
For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. (Isaiah 55:9 KJV)
There is no easy way out of this, it is either you blindly and dumbly follow the way of the lord or walk the way of the world which certainly leads to destruction. So when you act like or do the things the children of the world do, what would differentiate you from them?
How would God know you are his Child? (Zechariah 3:7 KJV). Why the lord’s way? In the lord’s way there is longevity (1 Kings 3:14 KJV), in His way you are assured of his presence with you and a ‘sure home’ (a place in his everlasting kingdom) (1 Kings 11:38 KJV), in his way we are saved from death and judgement (Ezekiel 18:29-30 KJV).
It is important to know that the way of truth is not easy, smooth, and rosy (Matthew 7:14 and  Jeremiah 21:8
AMP.] Still it is important to note that ours is the way of life.


The seat

 I know where you live-where Satan has his throne. Yet you remain true to my name. You did not renounce your faith in me, even in the days of Antipas, my faithful witness, and who was put to death in your city-where Satan lives. (Revelation 2:13 NIV)
Even in this present age where the devil lay siege everywhere and it seem there are no breathing space or spaces for us (Christians), we all need to take our stand and not be conformists (Romans 12:1-2NIV). If it is for the sake of eternity it is all worth it (Matthew 16:26 For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? KJV)

 Do well to:

(a) Watch the counsel you follow

(c) The seat on which you analyze the counsel.

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!

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.
