The Fatum Bank

Written by Adeolu Oluade








2 Peter 1:3-4(KJV) "According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, throughrepparttar knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:" "Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers ofrepparttar 151172 divine nature, having escapedrepparttar 151173 corruption that is inrepparttar 151174 world through lust." There is only one bank that outclasses all others, because it contains all kinds of precious, priceless, and unlimited resources needed forrepparttar 151175 fulfillment of destiny throughout all generations of humanity. It is called 'the Fatum Bank'. It is not affected byrepparttar 151176 world leading stock markets orrepparttar 151177 price of oil! It is impenetrable torepparttar 151178 dark world of crime. It is free from all kinds of bankruptcy or fraud. It cannot be manipulated by any human person or organisation. It cannot be accessed by human wisdom, might, or riches (Jer.9:23). It never has staff shortages or labour strikes! Its offices are open anywhere inrepparttar 151179 world 24/7. It shows no discrimination against any age, sex, nation, race, or ethnic group (James 1:17). Its credentials are certainly awesome! Who owns this incredible bank? 'The Fatum Bank' is by God, in God, and for God (Col.1:16-18). It not only has current accounts from which resources can be drawn,but it also has deposit accounts into which treasures can be laid up(Matt.6:20). It has more than enough room available for every person born underrepparttar 151180 sun to have all types of accounts. It even offers outstanding properties to all account holders (John 14:1-3)! 'Fatum' is one ofrepparttar 151181 Latin words forrepparttar 151182 English word 'Destiny'. The treasures in any current account of 'the Fatum Bank' are 'the riches of God's grace': Eph.1:7(KJV) "In whom we have redemption through his blood,repparttar 151183 forgiveness of sins, according torepparttar 151184 riches of his grace;" It is only by God's grace that anyone can become a customer of 'the Fatum Bank': Eph.2:8(KJV) "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it isrepparttar 151185 gift of God:" It takes God's grace to be what God has destined one to be: 1 Cor.15:10(KJV) "But byrepparttar 151186 grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, butrepparttar 151187 grace of God which was with me."

2 Kings 2 verse 14 "And he tookrepparttar mantle of Elijah that fell from him, and smoterepparttar 151047 waters, and said, Where isrepparttar 151048 LORD God of Elijah? and when he also had smittenrepparttar 151049 waters, they parted hither and thither and Elisha went over."

I have been meditating on this passage of scripture forrepparttar 151050 last several days. Chapter two of 2 Kings tellsrepparttar 151051 story of Elijah's last day on earth, beforerepparttar 151052 chariot of fire took him in a whirlwind. Elisha was to be Elijah's replacement, and he was journeying with Elijah to several places. He refused to leave Elijah's side and knew that particular day would be Elijah's last on earth. Several other prophets also knew that Elijah was going to be taken byrepparttar 151053 was no secret to them. They even asked Elisha if he knew but he told them to hold their peace and say nothing about it. Elijah performed his last miracle when he took his mantle, smoterepparttar 151054 waters ofrepparttar 151055 river Jordan, and they parted. When they crossedrepparttar 151056 Jordan, Elijah asked Elisha what he could do for him. Elisha asked for a double portion of Elijah's spirit, and Elijah said, "Thou hast asked a hard thing" (reminds me ofrepparttar 151057 fact to get a portion ofrepparttar 151058 spirit cost something...trials, testings, troubles, faith exercised, heartaches, misunderstandings, etc). Suddenly, a chariot of fire appeared, parted Elijah and Elisha, and then...Elijah was gone withrepparttar 151059 wind.
