26.2.17

Understanding Your Present Condition

Bible Reading: 2 Kings 6:1-2

 “And the sons of the prophets said unto Elisha, Behold now, the place where we dwell with thee is too strait for us. Let us go, we pray thee, unto Jordan, and take thence every man a beam, and let us make us a place there, where we may dwell. And he answered, Go ye.” 2 Kings 6:1-2

One of the greatest mistakes you can make now is to fail to understand your present situation. Thousands of people are living below expectation as result of lacking the present condition. The position you are now is not where God meant for you, is either you put yourself there or ignorant to be there.

The sons of the Prophets in our text discovered that the place they were dwell is not conducive, they need to expand it. Nobody told them, they discovered that there present condition should be expired. “The place where we meet with you is too small for us” NIV

Do you see your present house too small for you to dwell? Is your business enough to take care of your present finances? Are you in the right position where you should be? Are you in God’s plan and purpose for your life and ministry?

The sons of Prophet told their master that they need expansion- enlargement as a result of discovery of their present situation. They see need for enlargement and expansion for their ministry.

Abraham and Lot - Abraham and Lot discovered that there is need for them to enlarge and expansion. Both agree and they took the step – Genesis 13:7-9.

“…And Abram said unto Lot, Let there be no strife, I pray thee, between me and thee, and between my herdmen and thy herdmen; for we be brethren. Is not the whole land before thee? Separate yourself, I pray thee, from me: if thou wilt take the left hand, then I will go to the right; or if thou depart to the right hand, then I will go to the left. Genesis 13:7-9

Until you see that it is enough for you to dwell where you are to expand or look for another place you may not fulfill your purpose. How do you see where you live now? Is it conducive? Is your spiritual life need to be enlarged? Have you ever notice that your business/work need to be enlarge? Think of it now!

The Woman with 12 Years Predicaments - The woman with issue of blood for twelve years discovered her present condition that needs urgent solution.

“And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment: For she said within herself, if I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole. But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.” Matthew 9:20-22

Can you imagine and how this woman had been tormenting with infirmity for 12 years? She spent everything she have to get heal but resulted in vain. However, the very moment she discovered the Physician she needed to be heal, she instantly thought within herself and took the right step. The woman realizes that her present condition is not for her, she took a bold step and she overcomes the situation.

The present situation in the world today is a time of preparation for the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. You must aware of this! You must discover this and take the necessary steps to move closer to God in holiness, faithfulness, righteousness and sincerity of heart. Prepare yourself for the Second Coming of Jesus Christ is the beginning of wisdom that will make you reign with Him in His eternal Kingdom.

“And the Lord make you to increase and abound in love one toward another, and toward all men, even as we do toward you: To the end he may establish your hearts unblameable in holiness before God, even our Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all his saints.” 1 Thessalonians 3:13-14 , Read: 1 Thess.1:10, 2:19

WAR AGAINST THE DEMONIC VOICES

Bible Reading: Acts 16:16-18
“And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying: The same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of the most high God, which shew unto us the way of salvation. And this did her many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour.”
“And in the synagogue there was a man, who had a spirit of an unclean devil, and cried out with a loud voice, Saying, Leave us alone; what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth? Art thou come to destroy us?  I know thee who thou art; the Holy One of God.” Luke 4:33-34
One of the things that derail, divert and destroy many people’s destiny is the voice. The history makes it clear that thousands of people born were receiving evil voices on the day of their birth. For instance, the evil voice was uttered on Jabez from his mother as a result of the condition surrounded his birth – 1 Chronicles 4:9-10
What The Evil – Demonic Voices Does?
The voice of Satan was first heard by man when he spoke to Eve in the Garden of Eden (Genesis 3:1, 4-5). 
Satan's voice:
ü  Lies – lies against the children of God. Sometime what you did not do, somebody will just claim you are responsible for it.
ü  It deceives – It deceives many people
ü  It leads man astray - It always attempts to lead man into sin away from God.  He makes attempt to lead Jesus astray from God’s purpose - Matthew 4:1-13. 
ü  It destroys – Many lives were destroyed as a result of the evil voices pronounced against them knowingly and unknowingly.
ü  It kills – John 10:10a
ü  It steal  - steal and rob people’s of their blessing is another work of Satan’s voice
ü  Invoke curses and negatives words
ü  It identify the children of God – Acts 16:
ü  It is an inaudible voice - Sometimes the voice of Satan is actually audible when demons use the vocal cords of a possessed man or woman. 
ü  He speaks lies, deceit, and sinful thoughts into your mind. That is why we must guard our heart and minds from evil and negative thoughts.
ü  It speaks fear into your mind
ü  Evil spirits (demons of Satan) also have voices: For unclean spirits, crying with loud voice came out of many that were possessed with them. (Acts 8:7)
You can study some examples of conversations Satan has with God in Job 1:7-12 and 2:1-6.

How Can Man Contaminate Evil Voices?
Many people are under satanic bondage today as a result of evil voices invoke on them. For instance:
Ø  King Saul went to a witch for guidance:  I Samuel 28.
Ø  Manasseh consulted a sorcerer:  II Chronicles 33:16.
Ø  An unnamed man of God who listened to a man who claimed to be a prophet instead of obeying what God told him to do:  I Kings 13.
Ø  Balaam who listened to wrong counsel of man:  Numbers 22.
Ø  Watching and listening to demonic films/messages

LEARN TO WITHDRAW FOR THE PURPOSE OF ENLARGEMENT

Bible Reading:


“And when it was day, he departed and went into a desert place: and the people sought him, and came unto him, and stayed him that he should not depart from them.” Luke 4:42

ü  Learning is a command from our beloved Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. He wants and desires us to be 100% obedient to Him through His voice, and His words. His life on earth is a practical way we can lives as a children of God on earth.

ü  Jesus Christ, the Great Example. One of His prayer life attitudes is withdraw to certain places for prayers. The Gospel books mention several places where He withdrawn Himself to pray for one reason or the other. On several occasions, it was recorded that our Lord Jesus departed and went into desert place for personal discussion with the Father. 

“And when it was day, he departed and went into a desert place: and the people sought him, and came unto him, and stayed him that he should not depart from them.” Luke 4:42. 

“And he withdrew himself into the wilderness, and prayed.” Luke 5:16

“And he was withdrawn from them about a stone's cast, and kneeled down, and prayed,” Luke 22:41

ü  Our Society is Noises. Our world today is full of distractions and as a child of God we need to withdraw more than what the Lord Jesus did during His earthly ministry. Many so-called ministers of the Gospel are distractions from their responsibilities as a result of modern day technology such as phone, computer, TV, etc.

ü  Noising, the Satanic Instrument You Must Avoid. One of the tools that Satan is using through his servants to get down the children of God is noising. Our society is noise more than before.

John Piper, the founder of DeseringGod.com said: “Withdraw is an attitude of pull away from distractions — the phone, the computer, the TV, the constant noise of modern life — and find a way to separate yourself so you can be and feel “shut in with God.” It can be a challenge when you work away from home for long hours or are sharing your house from dawn-to-dusk with a bunch of loud and energetic children, but make it a priority. Your car on lunch break, a quiet corner in the office, a closet in between meals or feedings or naptimes, or simply the quiet of your heart if that’s all you can muster. But find solitude, and pray.”

ü  The Best Way To Sun Distraction. One of the best ways to shun distractions is to withdraw to certain place for personal prayer with God. Withdraw yourself will make it easy to focus on the major things you have for God.

ü  Evidence of Seriousness. Withdraw yourself is an evidence of seriousness with what you want to do.

ü  Building Healthy Relationship With God. You are building a cordial relationship with God when you are withdrawn to desert area for personal prayer with God.

ü  Understanding the Voice of God. Hearing God will be easy for you when He speaks to you during your discussion with Him.

16.2.17

CONQUER THE ENEMIES OF ENLARGEMENT

Bible Reading: Matthew 25:14-30
This year is your year of enlargement; however you may face opposition from others as you are pressing to enlarge. A pastor said: “Enlargement means more responsibility and anyone who has been found unfaithful in his or her present level cannot move to the next level. In the school of God, no one is promoted on trial!”

The following are the enemies of enlargement and expansion:  

Fear Of Failure: Matthew 25:14-30
Fear of failure is a killer of enlargement. For instance the unfaithful steward in Matthew 25:14-30 feared failure, so he did not even try to use what he had been given by his master. The only time you ever really fail is when you stop trying. Thomas Edison, a great inventor in the United States, tried hundreds of methods which failed before he invented electricity. But Mr. Edison went on to become a great success because He did not stop trying. Eventually, he discovered electricity. The Biblical record is filled with stories of great men and women of God who failed, but went on to become successful for God because they did not stop trying. Actually, when you fail to enlarge, you are enlarge in failure.

Fear of the Cost
There is no crown without cross and cost. Fear of the cost has made many to remain the same and not expand. They see it as waste of resources and time.

Ignorance:
Ignorance is another enemy of enlargement. Some people do not have thought of enlargement, and since they did not have such thought, they do not plan or ready to be enlarge. Hosea 6:4

Lack Of Purpose:
When people do not understand God's purpose and their specific purpose within God's plan, it is difficult to plan for enlargement. You must first know your purpose if you are to make plans to enlarge it. As a child of God, you should learn of the great purpose of God and your specific purpose in His plan.  When you understand these, you will be able to communicate them to others and help them recognize their part in God's plan.

Belief That Enlargement Is Not For Everybody:
Some people  believe enlargement is not Biblical. But the Biblical record is filled with men and women who enlarged under the direction of God. Our God is a God of purpose and enlargement. He has enlarged individuals, nations, Israel, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, and the Church in His plan. His purpose was established from the beginning of time, and He is still working out His plan in the world today. Without enlarging you, God has NOT fulfill His plan and purpose for you.

Belief That It Hinders The Holy Spirit:
Some people believe enlargement of their business, ministry, marriage, or organization hinder the freedom of the Holy Spirit. This is not true.  On the Day of Pentecost, the enlargement started with believers with the great outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon the believers – Acts 2:1-ff

Slothfulness: Proverbs 24:30-34
Some people do not enlarge because they are slothful. Slothfulness is unconcern and laziness. It does not bring forth spiritual enlargement.

Tradition:
Anytime you try to do anything different, you will encounter opposition of those bound in tradition. They do not want to change. They have done things a certain way for many years and it has become a tradition.

Fear Of The Future: Jeremiah 29:11 (The Living Bible) 
Enlargement deals with your present and with your future.  Some people fear the future and do not like to think about it or plan for it, therefore they are fear to take step of enlargement.  But you do not have to fear because God controls the future. He already knows the plans He has for you.

Forces of Darkness
Nehemiah has a vision, passion and desire to rebuild the wall of Jerusalem, but the enemies rose against him within and without. He did not allow them to stop him, but is some cases, people allow such antagonists to stop them.

Sin - Prov. 28:13
Sin will hinder a man from experiencing enlargement unless it is repented of, confessed and forsaken (sin must not to be covered). You must be willing and obedient in order to enter into divine enlargement. Disobedience to God’s word carries a curse and no one can make it under a curse (Deut. 28:15-68). To be cursed is to be empowered to fail.
Are you faithful at your present level? There is no enlargement by God for an unfaithful person. Pick up your assignments again and step up your faithfulness for divine trust. Beloved, you must conquer all the above factors in order to be enlarging!
