The heavenly vision

Written by Adeolu Oluade

Continued from page 1

There are people who seek to destroyrepparttar heavenly vision by diverting,weakening,deceiving,and frustrating those who are trying to fulfillrepparttar 148219 heavenly vision.

Nehemiah 2:20(King James Version) "Then answered I them, and said unto them, The God of heaven, he will prosper us; therefore we his servants will arise and build: but ye have no portion, nor right, nor memorial, in Jerusalem."

Such people are handled withrepparttar 148220 meekness of wisdom (James 3:13); instead of descending to fight them at their own level of ungodliness.

Romans 15:4(King James Version) "For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort ofrepparttar 148221 scriptures might have hope."

To become a lover of God and his work like Nehemiah everyone has to become a covenant child of God. This is possible by entering into a covenant relationship with God throughrepparttar 148222 Lord Jesus Christ. To do this,one has to repent of one's sins and believe in Jesus Christ as one's personal Lord and Saviour (Acts 2:38). If one is favoured by God to berepparttar 148223 first person to catchrepparttar 148224 vision,one (the visionary) needs a network of other people especially other covenant children of God to fulfill it. Forrepparttar 148225 heavenly vision to be fulfilled,'the visionary' also needs to fully depend on Godrepparttar 148226 vision giver. And if one is favoured by God to support 'the visionary',one should make one's contribution 'as untorepparttar 148227 Lord'. When confronting enemies ofrepparttar 148228 vision,one should remember not 'to wrestle against flesh and blood (Eph 6:12)' or 'to fight with carnal weapons' (2 Cor. 10:3-6).

Nehemiah 6:15-16(King James Version) "Sorepparttar 148229 wall was finished inrepparttar 148230 twenty and fifth day ofrepparttar 148231 month Elul, in fifty and two days." "And it came to pass, that when all our enemies heard thereof, and allrepparttar 148232 heathen that were about us saw these things, they were much cast down in their own eyes: for they perceived that this work was wrought of our God."

The fulfillment ofrepparttar 148233 heavenly vision brings shame to its enemies; joy torepparttar 148234 network of its supporters;and glory to God its giver.

Lost and found

Written by Adeolu Oluade

The second kind of wisdom is found in verses 17-18 ofrepparttar above scriptures-this is true wisdom and it is by this that any fighter can face, fight, and win in any battle of life. Therefore ‘wise counsel’ is actually counsel based on true wisdom. And it is this brand of wisdom that is ‘lost’ torepparttar 148218 hearts of human beings.

Job 28(KJV) verse 12 "But where shall wisdom be found? and where isrepparttar 148219 place of understanding?"

This all-important question has to be corrected answered for anyone to truly experience real victory in this world!

Job 28(KJV) verse 23 "God understandethrepparttar 148220 way thereof, and he knowethrepparttar 148221 place thereof."

This statement of truth is what bringsrepparttar 148222 turning point inrepparttar 148223 making of true champions! But how can this be relevant to us today?!

Job 28(KJV) verse 28 "And unto man he said, Behold,repparttar 148224 fear ofrepparttar 148225 LORD, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding."

Fromrepparttar 148226 above scripture, we learn from God Himselfrepparttar 148227 fear ofrepparttar 148228 LORD is wisdom!

This reverential fear is possessed only by those who have a personal covenant relationship with God. Anyone can enter into this relationship by humbly coming to Jesus Christ (Matt 11:28); repenting from one’s sins (Acts 2:38); and receiving Him (John 1: 12-13) as personal Lord and Saviour. It is only in Christ that this brand of wisdom is ‘found’!

How does any covenant child of God access wise counsel?

This is done regularly byrepparttar 148229 indwelling Spirit of God who teaches God’s people fromrepparttar 148230 scriptures directly or indirectly through lives and words of others (written or spoken).
