THE MEAL FOR EVERY DEAL




 If you will take your time to review our Monday Digest (MD), you’ll agree with me this topic was coined from a quote under a blog post: Strength in the Swot analysis here on CL Blogs.
This quote cum topic is aimed at making you realize that even when there are no opportunities around you, you create one. Can you relate that?


Creating Opportunities has to do with two things;
(a) Having others in your creation plan i.e. an opportunity that will affect the people around you and yourself
(b) Hitting the deal right.
What deal?

As you know here at CL Blogs we aim at reaching everyone out there irrespective of their age/status, thus, every one of us here is believed to have a Deal.

Word web defined Deal:         (a) Verb - to do business; offer for sale as for one’s livelihood
                                                (b) Be in Charge of or direct the course of
                                                (c) Manage/ Control  

The picture I am trying to paint here is this:
                                                                    
(a)   We are all offering something for sale(our time, skills, competencies, knowledge) as for our livelihood
(b)   We all are in charge of something- a business/proposed one, A job position/job hunt, a career/a course(training)
(c)    Lastly we all manage/control value- Money.
So with my little definitions I think you will believe we are all in a Deal and that means we need some values/stuffs to pull us through which I have termed meal.

A Meal (word-web dictionary):
(a)   The food served and eaten at one time
(b)    Coarsely ground foodstuff; especially seeds of various cereal grasses or pulse.
I.e. A meal is a combination of coarsely grounded stuffs (values) served and eaten at one time.
What I am saying is this: there is a combination of stuffs (values, cores, training, skills etc) that after coarsely grounded [which may take some time] is served and eaten at one time.

No wonder we do not hear about great men in their preparation i.e. while they are coarsely grounded we only notice them when they are served.
How well are you preparing?
How well are you grounded? Coarsely??

You are Serving to be Served do not forget.
Wherever you are today, you are being fed with the Meal for your Deal.

For the sake of introduction, we’ll be considering the four components of the Meal for your Deal in a short while from now by God’s grace in the order of its acronym.

M – Monitoring
E - Evaluation                                  For  
A - Accountability                           Every
L - Learning                                     Deal

I wish you a blessed week while I pray for you:
Lord Jesus, I commit this dear reader into your hands, He wants to make a meaning of his/her business life that he had to even read this introductory piece. Dear Lord, I ask you show him/her the way, guide him and enlarge him. Teach him how to Monitor, Evaluate, Account and Learn even before the end of this series that your name will be glorified in Jesus name, Amen!

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 SECRET PLACE

In the Old Testament,  the “Secret place” comes from the Hebrew root word “ Cether ”, which means to hide/be concealed. And really, no matter is hidden or concealed in a place or thing if it wasn’t the fragment of their make up. What then is the secret place? Psalm 139:15(NIV) – my frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place.

3 CATEGORIES OF SPIRITUAL GIFTS

Transformational gifts Ministry gifts Manifestation gifts Before we move ahead, you can click here to  read on Spiritual Gifts . Lets move on; The Apostle Paul speaks of the variety of spiritual gifts : “Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all. . . . But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will” (I Corinthians 12:4–11).

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

KAIROS: THE MYSTERY OF TIME

At the very beginning of Jesus’ earthly ministry  Jesus tells of a great opportunity: God’s kingdom is within our reach. To enter the kingdom, however, we must go through a process of REPENTANCE and BELIEF. Mark 1:14‭-‬15 KJV‬‬: Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God,  And saying, The time is fulfilled , and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel. Through this process we learn how: - To lay down our lives - Pick up the cross - Follow Jesus into the kingdom These three highlights aren’t steps but a circle that represents our Journey into the kingdom of God and time: the kairos moments in our lives which is the portal through which we enter into Kingdom living. What is a Kairos Moment?  A portal (access) through which we enter into dimensions of results. It is a moment and moments defines time just like seasons define destiny. Eg: Jesus’ death on the cross was not a last-ditch
