Handle your life revelations with care (warning).

What is a revelation?

All too often we get confused or narrow minded into thinking that a revelation only accounts for a special dream or a celestial vision.

A revelation is simply the discovery of anything that was hidden and brought to light.

Let me take a simple example:

' Genevieve is a beautiful young single girl seeking a good man. One day, she gets an invite from Paul to go on a first date. She says 'yes' and hopes that Paul is the real deal.  On the day of the date, Paul takes Genevieve to a nice fancy restaurant for dinner. But during dinner time, Paul keeps starring at the attractive body parts of their waitress...Genevieve notices it..something is definitely wrong with Paul.
Genevieve definitely needs to review her date...because she had discovered something about Paul.

A few weeks ago, I was hunting for a  new place to stay. I bumped on an interesting advert describing a beautiful cottaged room with its own toilet and kitchen. After seeing the advert, I decided on paying a visit to the place. As I arrived on the advertised place, I met a gentle lady who was guiding me through...I really felt convinced to take the place and suddenly, out of the blue, her husband came...politely, I greeted him but he replied by shouting:

-Why don't you kneel when greeting me?!

I was bedazzled and feeling lost. I could smell alcohol coming out of his mouth and his eyes were reddish; I understood that he was drunk. His wife attempted to make some damage control and said to me:

-'Don't mind him, he is a 'prophet' and he expects everyone to kneel in front of him...

And I asked:

-Does he often get drunk?
-'Yes', she said

The man kept making noise, so his wife advised me to get out and as we reached the compound gate, the husband ran towards us, threatening to beat his  wife who was rushing me to leave...I felt sorry for her...but I also decided not to move in that place.

You see, my dear friend reader, I came to visit a place and I discovered something I did not know; it was a revelation to me. I discovered that I would probably have a hard time dealing with a noisy and drunkard 'prophet'. By not moving into that place, I took the right decision.

God allowed to arrive at a specific time so that I may be able to see what was hidden in that house.

There is a wonderful story in the Bible counting the exploits of a hero named Samson.
Samson was a man gifted with supernatural strength from God, he was kinda similar to Superman in ability. God anointed him to protect Israel against the Philistines and the secret of his strength lied within his hair. An angel told his parents that he should never cut his hair or his strength would leave him.

But one day, he felt in love with a woman named Delilah and who was set up by the Philistines to discover the secret of Samson strength. As agreed with the Philistine, Delilah attempted to find Samson strength by asking him questions, and Samson lies to her the first time by telling her that 'if he gets tied by ropes, he will become weak.
So Delilah went to get fresh bowstrings ties from the Philistines and told them to hide in her house while Samson would be sleeping and tied up.
After successfully tying up Samson, she signals the Philistine to come and kill her husband. But it failed. Samson was too strong and beat his enemies.

Now, here is my question, when Samson noticed that the Philistine attacked him exactly on the night that he was tied up with fresh bowstrings by his wife, why did he not come to the conclusion that his wife was a dangerous red flag? On the contrary, he stayed with with his wife until he revealed the true source of his strength....the story does not end well...he gets arrested and turned into a slave by the Philistines...

You can read the entire story in the book of Judges from chapter 13 to 16.

Samson saw a red flag twice in Delilah's conduct, instead of parting ways, he thinks he can handle it.
It is very similar to many people who notice a red flag somewhere in their lives and they assume that they can handle it.

Have you ever seen the young girl who gets beaten up by the boyfriend while they are dating, and she assumes that he will change when they get married? So she decides to stay in the abusive relationship.

Certain things are simply too much and too hot  to handle and the best thing to do is to run.
Samson was the strongest man on Earth but he paid the price by ignoring the revealing signs of Delilah.
We see red flags at work, business, in relationships...and some of them are too dangerous to handle.

Back to my opening question:

'What is a revelation?'

'A revelation is the discovery of anything that was hidden. And there are more than one way to discover a hidden thing. Don't just think that revelations only come in dreams.'

The Book of Proverbs quotes:

'It is the glory of God to conceal things, but the glory of kings is to search things out' (Proverbs 25:2)

God gets glory by concealing things but there is glory for you when you discover something.

What does it mean?

It simply means that anything hidden still belongs to God but by the time it is revealed to you, it becomes your responsibility  and therefore you must base a decision upon what you have discovered.

Revelations can be either positive or negative. But once it is revealed to you, it becomes your property. And you will be judged for the way you handle your revelations.

What do you do when you discover something?

How do you handle your decisions after receiving a revelation?

Think about it.

How to make 'Psalm 23:1' work for you.

Psalms 23:1 reads:

'The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want'

Though the Bible is beautiful in every way possible, we tend sometimes to cut short the explanations included in it.

It is very easy to assume that we will lack nothing under any circumstances...and yes to a certain extent it is true. You should not be living in lack.

But if we decide to  read the entire verse, word per word, what does the Bible really say?

Hmmmm...interesting question.

The Bible says :

1. The Lord is my shepherd.
2. I shall not want.

The one habit that will make you a better person.

I once shared an apartment (flat) with a family in Johannesburg. Just like the trend required, I could not afford to have my own flat, so it was wise to reduce my expenses by sharing accommodation.

However, living with people does not come without challenge; we share stuff, we sometimes argue or celebrate together but one of the greatest element keeping different people together is in the ability to make concession towards each other.

What do I mean by that?

A few words about sowing and generosity.

Some people  constantly struggle because they do not know how to sow offering gifts.

The most important thing is the building of the Kingdom through soul winning (evangelisation) and soul building (through teaching).

We often get confused to think that all the promises of prosperity included in the Bible are for everybody. Unfortunately when we look closer, we will find out that many of the promises of God are for those who obey God's Words.

For example, when the Apostle Paul wrote in Philippians 4:19:' And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.' , He was not blessing everybody, but he was blessing a group of Philippians who supported him financially. But for you to understand that, you will need to read the context within which the verse was written. To understand Phil 4:19, you will need to read from Phil 4:10-20.
The promise was written for those who show generosity. So if we are stingy and lack generosity, that verse won't work for us.

One thing the Bible says about money,

Please open your Bible (if you have one) and make sure you read the following verse in your own Bible:

'Wisdom is a shelter as money is a shelter, but the advantage of knowledge is this: Wisdom preserves those who have it.'

(Ecclesiastes 7:12)

The above verse makes mention of wisdom as an important tool but have you noticed what it says about money?

The Word of God is our medicine (testimony).

I hate drinking tea...I actually stopped drinking tea for the past 7 months because I found out that it was turning my teeth yellow. You might be wondering why I am saying this but as you read further, you will understand the reasons behind mentionnning 'tea' as a substance I hate.

Last night, as I was coming from work, I stopped at a shop located in my neighborood and I bought a tasteful chocolate muffin. But at night, as I was sleeping, in a dream God ordered me to drink tea today. As I woke up, the dream did litterally little sense to my head but as the day went by, I felt serious digestive cramps in my stomach. I bought some 'ENO' powder to ease the pain but there was no results. As the hours kept going,  the pain was extremely tightening and then suddenly I remembered:

Be shrewd like a snake, soft like a dove.

One day, Jesus said:

"I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves.''

(Matthew 10:16)

What did Jesus mean by being both like a serpent and a dove? Isn't it contradictory?

The reason why so many people are having serious defeated lifestyles, is because they tend to act too soft like innocent doves. Every born again Christian has received a mandate from Jesus to achieve a mission on Earth, just like He said: 'I am sending you...'

The place where God sends us on a mission, is a land that we  are supposed to conquer for the Kingdom of God. Your purpose is the mission or the land where Jesus orders you to step in and dominate. But there is one problem:' in that land (mission) there are unruly people who will stand against you, and Jesus describes them as wolves.'

The secret to be entrusted with more from God

Very often, we complain about time constraints or about the little resources in hand to live our purpose.

But do you know that God expects you to do much with the seemingly little time or resources you have ?

That was one of the lessons hidden in the parable of the talents:

'three servants were given talents by their Master; the first servant received 5 talents, the second one received 2  talents and the last one only had one talent. The first two servants managed to invest their talents and got a return but the last servant, seeing that he only had one talent, decided to bury his talent and do nothing. The story does not end well for him; on his master's return, he was not only punished but the little talent he had was taken away from him.' (Matthew 25:14-30)

Jesus secret formula for greatness

One day, a woman came to Jesus with a very bold request, and said:

'Master, grant that one of my two sons may sit at your right and the other at your left in your Kingdom' (Matthew 20:21)

The woman's desire was to see her sons rule besides Jesus in the Kingdom of Heaven. In my personal opinion, the request seemed very bold and was coming straight out of a mother's love for her kids.

But Jesus made a bold statement in response to the woman's request. The response He gave, would become the number one key secret to 'greatness'.

Do you want to know what it is?

Do everything as if you were doing it for God.

'Whatever you do, do it enthusiastically, as something done for the Lord and not for men'

(Colossians 3:23)

This verse contains a great truth regarding excellence.

How do you intend on working today? Even if you hate your job, do it as if you were doing unto God.
How do you intend on greeting people? How do you intend on loving your spouse?

Whatever you choose to do, choose to do it as if you were doing it for God with optimism, enthusiasm and joy.

Many people out there wonder why they fail their job interviews, why they fail to find a date, or find new friends, why they fail to evangelize successfully, why they fail to sell their products....
It's quite simple, if we choose to do things as if we were doing it for the Lord instead of men, then we will do it with joy, and great dedication.

Nobody likes to buy from a salesman who lacks enthusiasm, no woman would agree to go on a date with a gloomy  sad guy, no potential employers would be impressed by a candidate who lacks enthusiasm during an interview...even a marriage needs the enthusiasm and dedication from the two people involved.

Do you get my point?

Choose to do every single thing as if you were doing it for God; with joy, dedication and knowing that God is watching you.

Promotion and rewards await those who choose the right attitude.

Have a good day.
