Psalm 119:99-100 says that students can have more knowledge, insight and more understanding than all their teachers as testimony of God’s gift, talent or favour. Honouring God, by meditating on word of God, following precept by precept to listen accurately and obey instruction means knowledge expands. I understand more than the ancients, because I keep God’s precepts. God gave Daniel knowledge, intelligence in all letters and in science. Daniel had understanding in all science and interpretation of visions, complex dreams. Daniel 1:4-17 praised the young men without blemish, handsome, gifted in all wisdom. Children in whom there was no blemish, well-favoured, skilful in all wisdom and knowledge with an understanding of science. These four young men God gave them knowledge and skill in all kinds of science of their time. God gave to Daniel special ability in understanding meanings of dreams like Joseph. Daniel and his friends had more knowledge in science and wisdom because of God’s Hands upon their lives. They impressed Babylon king in Iraq so much with knowledge God gave them so they were made courtiers in the king’s palace. They advised the king and also Daniel was promoted to be a supervisor. Daniel’s ability to reveal and interpret a king’s dream brought favour of God’s promotion. The king decreed Daniel’s God is Only ONE TRUE LIVING GOD to be worshipped. Due to miracles seen of Daniel not being eaten in the lion’s den or burnt by fire Son of God Jesus joined them in. It is important to be humble in using whatever gifts of knowledge God gives us for His Glory in Jesus Name. I experienced visions in my dream where God showed me complex statistics and data about various constellations, space calculations I not know existed before my dream. God beamed these data onto the sky so I told God to wait for me to go get paper to write them down because it was too much for me to memorize all in my dream but I woke up. To my greatest surprise all God revealed in my dream was already online available on Google. I could not believe my eyes and I shared testimony many times. God is source of all knowledge so its good to give God all the Glory and thanks for talents helping accomplish good success in Jesus Name. The Holy Spirit brings to remembrance knowledge to recall what we learn or see in visions to testify the goodness of God. If struggling in any field of study seek God’s face for Mercy and Grace to receive knowledge, wisdom to achieve excellence. Akiane is a living example of God teaching her to paint by meditating in the presence of God to receive visions to draw. She is known all over the world as, “Girl Taught Art by God.” God’s gifts, talents, and skills are to enhance quality of life to bless mankind. Remember to thanks to God for protect the knowledge given you. Just as Father God is happy to see HIS Children success the devil wants to sabotage knowledge and the glory of mankind. The devil goes extra miles to pervert, destroy, ruin, counterfeit the real knowledge of God. Some destroyed by family strongholds that subdue the gifts and talents of God due to envy and jealousy. So it is good to be under God’s POWER to protect knowledge given you to flourish and thrive as God wants for you in Jesus Name. Cover yourself with BLOOD of Jesus and talk to your pastor as the young man in this video did to receive breakthrough in Jesus Name.

ENTRUST YOUR MONEY TO GOD, JESUS
Love of money is root of all evil says 1 Timotht 6:10. Money is used to pay for goods and services or debts. Money is seen as power, influence, riches or fame globally. Good money makes you rich but bad money makes poor. Receiving good money in dream means financial prosperity and glory to you. You control money well. No money in dream means, lack, poverty or financial debt. Constant dream of picking money from ground is lack of money due to waste. People find big money is coming attacked in dream to cause financial struggle. And picking money from ground is used by enemy to keep people under financial bondage or loss. Overcome dream to become rich and have abundant wealth in your life in Jesus Name. Picking money from the ground in dream means you are given the spirit of wasters to put spiritual hole into source of your income and money. Such a dreamlife is caused by ancestor’s foundation of poverty that seeks wealth from herbalists and witchdoctors. The ancestors caused the family problems to pollute, defile financial destiny. Money in dream is wasted so not yielding good fruits. Such dream destroy good success or prosperity. God did say pick money from the ground as a method for riches, because it causes untold hardship and suffering for people. Reject the spirit of poverty today. The blessing of the LORD makes rich and adds no sorrow says Proverbs 10:22. If in dream you receive money, it is financial prosperity, people will supply your needs and wants. They will create blessings and prosperity. If in financial dryness, this dream means money coming soon to make profitable income in whatever you do. This dream can works effectively when you are a hardworking, determined and focus person. Money does not fall from the skies so learn to be responsible! If in a job or business it shows promotion and a change of status. God said give and it shall be given unto you so and receive back from God not a benefactor. This dream applies to counting money, or receiving money from people. Do take dreams seriously because they mirror real life destiny. When you dream and give money to people or organisations, you do as Bible says in Luke 6:38 so God gives back to you pressed down, shaken together, running over Blessing so much more than you have room to store. This means you have good success helpers as a continuous in dream or physical life, you will get a major breakthrough. God has special plan for you like Jesus got more loaves of bread and fishes from 5 loaves and the minimum two fishes to feed crowd with maximum 12 baskets. Rejoice as God said in Bible in Malachi 3:8-9, ”do not rob God return, break the curse even whole nations and tithe to build God’s Kingdom. When you dream and find out your money stolen or lost it is a financial setback. It will deprive you of the blessing of God and prosperity. If dream is frequen increase your giving to God. If you dream counting money or in bank, it means money will no longer be problem in Jesus Name. If dream of using ATM watchout managing money.

Hebrews 9:27 says it’s appointed once to die in Bible yet people live again after a clinical death resuscitation with proof of their confirmed death certificate. Some assume verse means mankind dies ONCE ONLY so never lives after death. Yet Scripture shows Jesus’ resurrection brought life after death and Jesus lives in heaven. Christ was sacrificed once to take away sin He will appear a second time in the CLOUDS in Rapture to bring salvation. Also other physical resurrections happened in life prior to Christ’s resurrection in the Old Testament showing a young boy died and was brought back to life by Elisha in 2 Kings 4:19-37. Another dead man was revived when his body touched the bones of prophet’s Elisha’s grave in 2 Kings 13:21. Individuals in Old and New Testament died but raised from death by Jesus and disciples. Many people were raised after Christ’s death, Resurrection God brought them back to life in Matthew 27:52-53, they went back to their homes, where many people saw them including their miracle experience for their relatives and friends reunions. The Bible account of these people God resurrected at Christ’s death eventually died again and their families buried them again. All other saints who died wait in graves to be resurrected to life in glorious spirit body. They did not die ‘once only’ but lived after resurrections and died second time later. They lived the rest of their resurrected physical lives and died again, buried, awaiting resurrection to spirit life upon return of Jesus Christ in Rapture. Proverbs 18:21 in Bible says death and life are in mouth so choose life. Those who do believe in Rapture of Daniel 12 and 1 Corinthians 15:50-53 go to God in heaven before the Great tribulation starts. The others stay asleep in grave until a thousand years after Millineal reign of Jesus and raised so their spirit soul after death does NOT go to heaven to be with God for saying Ecclesiastes 9:5 that dead know nothing. They quote John 3:13, none ascends into heaven only Jesus who came down from heaven or Jesus Christ referred to death as sleep in John 11:12-15. But Enoch and Elijah went ALIVE into heaven so those left behind’s flesh and spirit stay ASLEEP in grave. Those in God in Christ who believe in Rapture are resurrected by Jesus in Rapture alive into heaven.
The widow of Zarephath’s son was also raised from death. The prophet Elijah was at house of widow in Zarephath when the woman’s son died. She said Elijah brought God’s wrath for her sin.
She carried the boy into the upper room where he was staying, Elijah laid him on a bed and stretched himself on the body three times. He cried out to God for the boy’s life to return. God heard Elijah’s prayer and child’s came back to life and Elijah carried him downstairs. The woman declared prophet a true man of God and his words to be true in 1 King 17:17-24.
Elisha, the prophet stayed in the upper room of a couple in Shunem. He prayed for the woman to bear a son, and God answered. Several years later, the boy complained of a pain in his head then died. The woman went to Mount Carmel to Elisha, who sent his servant ahead, but the boy did not respond. Finally, Elisha went to see the dead boy. He cried out to the Lord and laid himself on the dead body, mouth to mouth, eyes to eyes, hands to hands. The boy’s body grew warm so he sneezed seven times and opened his eyes. Elisha presented the boy back to his mother, she fell and bowed to the ground in 2 Kings 4:18-37.
Elisha the prophet died and was buried in a tomb. Moabite raiders attacked the Israel in spring interrupting a funeral. Fearing for their own lives, the burial party quickly threw body into Elisha’s tomb. As soon as body touched Elisha’s bones, the dead man came to life and stood up on his feet. This miracle was a resurrection from grave into a new life in 2 Kings 13:20–21.
In a village of Nain, Jesus and disciples encountered a funeral procession. Only son of a widow being buried. When Jesus saw her, his heart went out to her. He touched the bier that held the body so pall bearers stopped. When Jesus told the young man to get up, the son sat up and began talking. Jesus gave him back to his mother so people were astonished Praising God, they said, “A great prophet has appeared among us. God has come to help his people” in Luke 7:11–17.
When Jesus was in Capernaum, Jairus, a leader in the synagogue, begged him to heal his 12-year-old daughter because she was dying. On the way, a messenger said not to bother because the girl had died. But Jesus said to Jairus, “Don’t be afraid; only believe, and your daughter will be healed.” Jesus arrived in a house to find mourners wailing outside. When he said she was not dead but sleeping, they laughed at him. Jesus went in, took her by the hand and said, “My child, get up.” Her spirit returned and she raised to life again. Jesus told parents to give her something to eat but not tell anyone what happened in Luke 8:49–56.
Jesus’ friend Lazarus was very sick so Martha and Mary sent for Jesus to come heal him in Bethany. Jesus delayed so He did not arrive before Lazarus died. Jesus stayed two more days but later arrived in Bethany when Lazarus had been in the tomb four days. Martha met them outside the village, where Jesus told her, “Your brother will rise again. I am the resurrection and the life.” They approached the tomb Jesus wept. Jesus ordered the stone rolled away, saying, “Did I not tell you if you believe, you will see the glory of God?” Raising His eyes to heaven prayed aloud to Father God. He commanded Lazarus to come out and he did so walked out, wrapped in burial cloths in John 11:1-44.
After mock trial Jesus was scourged and taken to Golgotha outside Jerusalem by Roman soldiers nailed Him to the Cross on Friday and His body was put in the tomb of Joseph of Arimathea. So tomb was sealed and soldiers guarded place. Sunday morning, the stone was rolled awayand empty and angels said Jesus raised from the dead. He appeared first to Mary Magdalene and to his disciples plud many others around the city told in Matthew 28:1-20; Mark 16:1-20; Luke 24:1-49; John 20:1-21:25.
Jesus Christ died on cross as earthquake struck, breaking open many graves and tombs in Jerusalem. Jesus’ resurrection from death raised Godly people raised to life appeared to many in the city in Matthew 27:50-54.
Everyone in city of Joppa loved Tabitha. She was always doing good, helping the poor, and making garments for others. One day Tabitha named Dorcas in Greek grew sick and died. Women washed her body then placed it in an upstairs room. They sent for apostle Peter, who was in nearby Lydda sent all from room, Peter fell to his knees and prayed. He said to her, “Tabitha, get up.” She sat up and Peter gave her to friends alive. So many people believed in Jesus because of it in Acts 9:36-42.
In a packed third story room in Troas a young man sitting on a window ledge fell to death during sermon by apostle Paul. Fell from the windowsill a young man Eutychus dozed off,falling out of the window to his death. Paul rushed outside and threw himself on lifeless body. Immediately Eutychus came back to life. Paul went back upstairs, broke bread, and ate, people saw Eutychus alive again in Acts 20:7–12. So many people in modern times are raised alive from the grave in many countries today. You tube videos record testimonies of millions of people raised from death all over the world. So Resurrection Spirit of God in Christ is still at work today in all countries because Jesus is the same Yesterday, today and forever. So people from all nations died more than once because Jesus tarried. Some will never die before Rapture if the CLOUDS takes place so Jesus comes sooner. No matter when Rapture takes place people alive will join those raised alive from graves.
Scriptures is very clear out of soul body, buried goes to Heaven immediately if a believer or to hades or hell if not. When Lazarus died, the angels carried him to Abraham’s Bosom. He saw and talked to rich man across the Great Gulf and in torment and pain in eternal judgement in hell. In the Book of Revelation the souls of those killed during the 7 years of Jacob’s Trouble of Great Tribulation, were under the Altar of God in heaven talked to God and God talked to them. The asked how long was it going to be before God avenged their death and God replied they had to rest a little longer until others were slain as they were. They did not wait in a deep sleep in the grave. When the Rapture happens, Jesus will bring the souls of those who had died with Him and Jesus will call their glorified bodies up from the grave to reunite with their souls in the clouds. Those who are alive, will be translated like Enoch was in Genesis and join Jesus in the clouds. Scripture is clear on this so we should not contradict Word of God. All who believe death is ONCE ONLY remain asleep in graves on earth until the MILLENNIAL second resurrection of all dead after Jesus’ rule and Reign on earth. They do not believe God can take their Spirit soul to heaven so GOD let’s them remain asleep in the graves never enjoying joy of heaven as idea comforts loved ones to know dead person is still around just sleeping in a grave. This is in line with concept of those left behind on earth saying flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God. They are left behind on earth as God grants them the permissive will belief because of not thinking God changes HIS mind at times in Scripture to rise or live after death. Hezekiah was appointed to die but he refused to die so God changed HIS mind and extended his life 15 years. As Jesus said later no man ascended into heaven in John 3:13 in a manner He did. Enoch went alive into heaven, Elijah went to heaven alive but not in the grand global style Jesus did as sent off by disciples on Mount Olives. The faithful Christians in Christ will be resurrected into spirit life by Christ as their First of the firstfruits in rapture. Saints whose body in graves AWAIT their resurrection 1 Corinthians 15:20 – 23 will go in the Rapture. Their Lord and Master Jesus built mansions for them to go into heaven before the GREAT TRIBULATIONS of mark of the beast starts. It is important to make up ones mind because whether you believe it or not Rapture will take place as days Noah’s family was saved in the flood. Lot was saved in Sodom and Gomorrah from the fire so GREAT TRIBULATIONS of endtimes from the EARTHQUAKES and unseen evil is too unbearable. But those who prefer to stay left behind are allowed by God to do so. Both beliefs of two groups of Rapture and Left Behind are valid for its not exclusively only one correct answer. Jesus said two will be together and one will be taken but the is left behind. In maths correct answer is accepted as long as you can prove your method at arriving at the right answer. In the same way God let’s those whose standpoint in Bible agrees with Rapture point of view go to heaven and those who stand on a left behind perspective left on earth accordingly. Rapture is coming for those AWAITING Jesus in the CLOUDS but those who prefer SLEEP in graves will be left behind until after the 1000 years of Jesus Rule and reign. It is a choice of each person to decide if they prefer Rapture or want to stay asleep in the grave until after Jesus’ Millennial Resurrection of the dead for judgement. Those taken to God into heaven receive REWARDS for their service for God but others will stay asleep until after 1000 years rule of Jesus before being judged. So Bible says, according to your faith be it into you because God does not force people against their will to resurrect in glorified body to HIS physical Presence in heaven. SO UNLESS YOU BELIEVE IN THE RAPTURE YOU WILL NOT EXPERIENCE IT. The Resurrection of Jesus is different from all resurrections because Jesus’ resurrection is first “permanent” resurrection. All other resurrections in Bible were “temporary” so those raised to life died again Lazarus died twice but Jesus rose and never died again. This is why, He is firstfruits of all those “fallen asleep” in 1 Corinthians 15:20. Jesus’ resurrection justifies us in Romans 4:25 ensures eternal life because Jesus lives we will have eternal life in John 14:19. It is good to know death is not end of life so believers mourn with hope of eternal Resurrection in Christ Jesus. Father God our Comforter comforts through Holy Spirit to bear grief, sorrow for a season of crying and tears during passing into Glory. Yet we have full assurance loved ones will rise again in Christ’s Rapture and be reunited in the Presence of God in heaven. Then later dwell with God on earth physically when New Jerusalem comes down to Israel under Christ Jesus our KING of King’s rule forever. There will be no more tears, sorrow, pain or grief for God wipes all our tears away to live forevermore in Eternal joy. Death is painful yet we have hope of living again in joy in resurrection of Jesus Christ. A South African woman was discovered alive in a morgue after being declared dead in a car crash. The woman was found breathing by mortuary technicians several hours after being certified dead by paramedics at scene of pile-up outside Carletonville, southwest of Johannesburg. We followed our procedures – we’ve got no idea how it happened,” Distress Alert operations manager Gerrit Bradnick told AFP. The crew is absolutely devastated – we’re not in the business of declaring living people dead, we’re in the business of keeping people alive.”The unnamed woman from Gauteng “showed no signs of life” following the traffic accident in the early hours of 24 June, Mr Bradnick added. Carletonville mortuary in South Africa where the woman was found alive. She was found alive in morgue fridge many hours after the crash in which victims’ car rolled, throwing her out of vehicle. All the right checks were done: breathing, pulse so patient declared deceased, Mr Bradnick said. After being discovered alive, the woman taken to Carletonville hospital is now recovering. “Paramedics are trained to determine death, not life” a source at Carletonville mortuary told Sowetan newspaper. Other deaths came alive:-
Pastor Daniel Ekechukwu died and also came back to life in a basement room of a church at Reinhard Bonke crusade in Nigeria, Africa. By prayer and massage to soften dead body from rigor mortis suddenly Daniel sneezed and arose with a jump. Between 3:50 and 5:15 PM on Sunday, Daniel who died Friday night around 10:00 PM slowly became fully coherent over the next few hours. The video of his testimony is below to see. A report on the website of Christ for all Nations declares: Three days Daniel was in a mortuary, did not breathe, his heart stopped beating. In hot climate, without ice chamber was injected with chemical to keep back mortification. Corpse was carted around for hours, pulled about, and lay in airless narrow coffin hours completely dead with death certificate. This public event was demonstration of revival from death by God in Jesus Name through wife Nneka’s faith. Her incurable faith prevented Daniels burial to bring him because she was convinced God will bring him back to life. She said Reinhard Bonnke as a man of God in the atmosphere of faith he ministered, this miracle was possible. The faith of Nneka dictated the whole event and her faith was honoured by God. She stood on word of God women receive their dead alive in Bible. Pastor Ekechukwu shares his testimony of his story of what happened when he was in heaven and saw hell. Now Pastor Daniels message is repentance of the church to prepare the church to stand before Jesus, and many have indeed repented after hearing his testimony live in real holiness. Ministry of Reinhard Bonnke in Nigerian crusade and in all the world share his testimony on TV and travels to share testimony.
God’s incredible favour, honour and the privilege for The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s inspiring journey of love, hope and family since engagement photos, all the way through to the official wedding on Saturday sums up Christianity. The royal wedding is compared to marriage of Lamb of God. Clement Ngissah wrote “Meghan Markle’s marriage to Prince Harry and who she becomes” to explain the believer’s important connection to Jesus always and favour of imputation of His righteousness attained thereby. Some of the lessons learnt from Meghan Markle’s lifestory is similar to how Jesus imputes His righteousness on believers. To qualify to enter His Eternal Kingdom Christian believers accepts Jesus’ Love proposal as the Bridegroom to become born again in similar fashion, Meghan Markle takes Prince Harry’s royal status so whenever with him all blood royalty below the Prince’s rank and status bow and curtsy to her although she is not a royal by blood or Princess Meghan. YeShe was not British or Royal by birth. She is an American. Her parents got divorced when she was six years old. Her father is Caucasian and her mother an African-American. She is half black and half white. She is a divorcee. She married her first husband, an actor and producer Trevor Engelson in September 2011 got divorced in August 2013. And she featured in movies in underwear sometimes showing what evangelicals define as ‘nakedness.’ Some allegedly leaked nude pictures of her on internet. To some people not the ideal woman to marry into royal family, importantly to marry sixth in line to the throne. For this reason was abused by many on the internet, on radio, tv etc. This made the British Royal Family’s communication secretary to release official statement in November, 2016 addressing the issues, ranging from sexism, to racism etc. But none of these, not her background as a ‘commoner’ or an African-American, an actress, a divorcee did not stop her. So after today, 19th of May, 2018, Meghan Markle becomes ‘Her Royal Highness Princess Henry, Duchess of Sussex and Countess of Dumbarton and Kilkeel.’ So for ease called ‘Her Royal Highness, The Duchess of Sussex.’ For the record she is first ever approved Duchess of Sussex in the history of royal family.THE AMAZING THING is that although Meghan is not royal by blood, yet when with her husband Prince Harry or the Duke of Sussex, she will take his status and rank. As a result, all blood royalty below status and rank of her husband will have to bow and curtsy to her. On the contrary when she is alone then she has to bow and curtsy to blood royalty or anyone more senior than her. This helps to understand the imputation of righteousness of God. Like Meghan, our own self-righteousness cannot qualify us to be called Christians or qualify for the Kingdom of God. And as a result, we need Jesus Who gives His Name, status in order for us to be qualified to enjoy the privileges of God’s Royal Priesthood. In this case it is Jesus Christ of Nazareth our joint Heir makes us Children of God as Meghan from today officially known among the royal family. It’s not because of anything she did by her own accord or has done but because she is married to Prince Harry. She will receive secret service protection, diplomatic passports and enjoy other enviable privileges not because of her, but because of Prince Harry. In this context, Prince Harry is the way she has to all these. Without her Prince she is just Meghan Markle. In the same fashion the way to God to gain privilege in God in Christ and heaven is Jesus. We are qualified and will enjoy in heaven because of Him. We live forever because of our marriage to Jesus and it is not because of anything we did, have, will do or can do. And we are nothing without Lord Jesus Christ our Saviour.LESSONS FROM MEGHAN LIFESTORY.
1. No matter your past is. No matter the challenges, bad experiences you have gone through do not give up. Do not let your mistakes, setbacks and failures of the past to dictate your today and tomorrow.
2. Do not be over conscious of what people say about you. Don’t live your life according to the opinions of others. No matter the defamatory stories said or printed about you, whether true or false, don’t give up. Stand tall, apologize when you have to. Change when you have to. Reconcile when you have to and just march forward.
3. When your season is due, when it is your time to shine, believe nothing can stop you. No one knows tomorrow, your tomorrow can make your enemies, accusers, those who looked down or you to bow and curtsy to you. Be positive and work hard. The future is brighter.
4. More importantly, who you connect with is very very important. Who comes into your life is of great importance. Meghan Markle the actress because of her connection and marriage to Prince Harry is now someone so different with honour, higher status, privileges, care and attention she didn’t have before. She may not be royal by blood but because of her marriage some royals by blood have to bow and curtsy to her when she is with her husband.
As sinners we didn’t deserve it, our own righteousness couldn’t and cannot qualify us to enter the Kingdom of God except we repent believe in Jesus for Him to impute His righteousness on us. The same way Meghan Markle’s status as a popular actress, an American etc cannot qualify her and couldn’t qualify her to be called Her Royal Highness or for the royals to bow and curtsy to her but marrying the Prince and taking on his rank and status qualifies her. Who are you connected to? Jesus Christ of Nazareth wants to connect with you to save you, redeem you, to promote you, to Bless and Favour you and give you Eternal life in God’s Royal Kingdom.
The blue background of the shield on her arms represented the Pacific Ocean off California’s coast with two golden rays symbolic of the state’s sunshine. Meghan’s American royal arm features 3 quills representing communication and power of words. Beneath the shield, collection of golden poppies, California’s state flower and wintersweet which grows at Kensington Palace where she lives, the palace said. Next to shield are two “supporters“ one for her husband and one relating to her, a songbird with open beak which represents the power of communication. The good heraldic design is simple and the arms of the Duchess of Sussex stand well beside the historic beauty of the quartered British royal arms,” Woodcock said. Technical description of arms is “azure a feather bendwise argent quilled between two bendlets all between two like feathers argent quilled. To qualify in Kingdom of God one must wear righteous garments approved worthy of God’s Presence. In the same way the dress code for royal wedding conformed to their standards.

Isaiah 11:2 says the Spirit of the LORD rests upon Jesus, Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and Might, Spirit of knowledge reverence and obedient fear of the LORD Yahweh. The “seven spirits of God” in Revelation 1:4; 3:1; 4:5; and 5:6 are the Spirits of God identified. Revelation 1:4 mentions these 7 spirits before God’s Throne in Revelation 3:1 show Jesus Christ “holds” the seven spirits of God. Revelation 4:5 links the seven Spirits of God with seven burning lamps before God’s Throne. So Revelation 5:6 identifies seven Spirits with “seven eyes” of the Lamb stating they are “sent out into all the earth.” It the will of God people have God’s Holy Spirits manifestations in all believers.
These 7 Spirits of God bears good fruits of the Holy Spirit in a biblical way as evidenced of functions. The term sums up 9 attributes of believers, people or the community living according to Holy Spirit. Galatians 5:22-23 says fruits of God’s Holy Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness to others, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. The 7 Spirits of God is for God’s Glory to edify God’s Holy Name and do greater works Jesus commanded to do. Purpose of God’s 7 Spirit is doing works of God on earth enables complete Godly ability, talent, skills all necessary for Children of God to study to be approved by God to serve and to witness daily in Christ. They are not detached titled deeds only exclusively given to Christ Jesus alone. The 7 Spirits are Power of God’s Spirit at work in each believer who receives the Holy Spirit in Christ Jesus Name. So not only for trained pastors but whole body of Christ in Church of God to empower believers in the righteousness of God. It is for believers to receive finished work of Christ to bear Godly good fruits. God created mankind in HIS own image and God’s Spirit life-breath in people. The 7 Spirits nature of God equips believers to get to know God better to represent God well daily in Jesus Name. Believers bear good fruits of God’s Holy Spirit so doing the work of God manifest these 7 Spirits of God. Apples do not fall far from trees, all grafted in Christ as branches of the True Vine act like Jesus. The Christians in Antioch in Pisidia were identified as Jesus associates or Jesus’ friend. God’s 7 Spirits at work in Jesus followers seen in faithful apostles, disciples, believers. Christlike Godly qualities required in Millenium Reign after Jesus defeats His enemies in the Armageddon battle to usher in New Heaven and New Earth.
Throughout recorded history majority of humanity has seen existence of the Creator, Who intentionally brought the Universe in to being and sustains all life as an obvious truth. This truth does not stem from doctrine or belief system, but it is at the heart of all religions, and is underlying, indispensible principle of most spiritual practices. In Buddhism, misrepresented as an atheistic tradition, recognizes existence of guiding consciousness. As the Zen Buddhist master, Soyen Shaku, said, “Let me state that Buddhism is not atheistic as the term is ordinarily understood. It has certainly a God, the highest reality and truth, through which and in which this universe exists.” Scientific discoveries have only reinforced this realization, as it becomes even clearer the Universe was carefully designed. Prominent British mathematician Roger Penrose calculated the probably of random chance producing a Universe conducive to life at vastly less than scientifically accepted definition of “zero.” Even if one were to accept arguments from those who claim the Universe is not so “fine tuned,” we must rely on the mind-boggling, and empirically unproven, concept of multiple Universes, and then probability of random events leading to life only budges from staggeringly unimaginable to extraordinarily unlikely. And we are still left with such clearly designed, incredibly complex, mechanisms as DNA and the brain. This is not “God of Gaps” explanation, any more than looking under the hood of a car and deducing a designer is “Engineer of the Gaps.” To postulate a random, undirected, meaningless, existence in the face of unbelievable complexity and purpose of life is, in actuality, the much more irrational, and less logical, conclusion. This has been compared to proposing that a hurricane whipped through a junkyard and randomly assembled a jet plane. Late in his life the previously ardent atheist Anthony Flew famously noted, “What I think the DNA material has done is that it has shown, by almost unbelievable complexity of the arrangements which are needed to produce life, intelligence must have been involved in getting these extraordinarily diverse elements to work together.” For his honesty, courage and humility, Flew was mocked, and even labeled as senile, by many ardent atheists, who saw his statement as an unforgivable, heretical violation of their strict dogma that any hypothesis is acceptable except God.
To make the scientific claim that one will “go where the evidence leads,” and yet consider such utterly unsupported hypotheses as multiple Universes, alien seeding (which, of course, still leaves the questions of where the aliens came from), mind memes (a total fantasy) and lightening strikes animated primordial chemical soup to create life (which has never been scientifically reproduced), while not even considering the obvious possibility of a deliberate Creator, is to be intellectually dishonest at best. What are the reasons for this irrational, and often very nasty, refusal by some to even consider the existence of a Creator as a viable hypothesis? I offer several possibilities:
A Childish Concept of God
For many, the belief in a Creator is rooted in a personal, direct encounter, in God experience, others often is pure consciousness, pure creation, endless love, animating energy of everything, or the Ultimate Reality. For those who experienced God Presence God concept is sophisticated not childish, based on immaturity, knowledge and innate gifts. Jehovah God is a man seated on throne in white cloak, long beard who made the world according to Isaiah in the Bible.” Richard Dawkins, for example, said, “We are all atheists about most of the gods societies have ever believed in; some of us just go one god further,” he showed a childish image of God. And he showed a lack of any experience in the spiritual realm. If he had any direct experience he would have known that all these societies were attempting to describe the mystery of Spirit in human archaic terms and idea of competing gods is a literalistic and immature one. Jehovah is the Most High God Above all gods made by man so must humbly recognize theology is an activity for which, frankly, he has little talent or understanding. Such a childish view of God is not limited to atheists but applies to religious folks who place dogma over personal experience, and for whom any digression from dogma is punished.
Tyranny of the Mind
The human mind is a powerful tool, but can also be a cruel tyrant. While it is skilled at storing and analyzing data, it cannot feel, and so there is much such as art, music, compassion, love, sex or Spirit that it cannot truly know. The mind, though, insists on analyzing these things, and tries to convince us that its analysis is the only way of knowing. It does this because it has little trust or no respect for anything not measurable and linear, and consequently it resists recognizing the other essential human facilities: needs of the body, the wisdom of emotions, and most especially, the guidance of Spirit. For those who have developed strong connections to body, emotions and Spirit, the mind can be managed and used properly. There are those who for a variety of reasons, have weak connections to body, emotions and Spirit. Their mind has free reign, dominating their lives and seeking to eliminate anything it cannot rationally comprehend. Then the mind eliminates anything that challenges its supremacy. For such a tyrannical mind, concept of a Creator God Ultimate Superior Being of intelligence that dwarfs theirs own is completely intolerable.
An Ego Strategy
As I’ve written in several previous blogs, the ego is the software implanted in us to ensure survival. Its job is to scan for threats and devise strategies to avoid pain and death. The ego knows only fear, and it will fiercely fight anything that threatens its survival. And nothing is more frightening to the ego than sharing or ceding control with another, because this feels like death. So the ego’s favorite strategy for protecting itself is the refusal to surrender to anything or anyone. It will even go so far as refusing to acknowledge a mistake, to apologize, to recognize superior abilities in others, to admit a weakness and, most pathetically, to ever express gratitude. I recently heard a man state that he “does not believe in gratitude,” but instead prefers the word “appreciation”: “I appreciate a delicious meal or a beautiful sunset, but I feel no need to say ‘thank you,’” he proudly proclaimed. This is the voice of ego. And to make the claim, as did the late Christopher Hitchens (who I deeply respect for his exposure of injustice), that there is no Creator/Designer because Hitchens did not approve of the way that eyes are designed, is also the pathetic voice of ego; it is the refusal to say “thank you” for the gift of life and miracle of sight. This is sad. Clearly one does not need to believe in God or follow religion to be wonderful, happy, caring, human being. What matters most is how we treat each other. But the refusal to even consider that a Creator may exist often accompanied by the adamant desire to “prove” otherwise and to ridicule those who do especially in the face of much blatant evidence, is an indication that a psychological mechanism is at work. Perhaps what is needed for such irrational position may not be more intellectual investigation, but psychoanalysis.
Confidence in God is inbuilt in the brain to receive information, process, to take an action, store, apply or discard based on relevance. So scientists successfully have mapped parts of brain enhancing positive thinking to enable reinforcing good thoughts. When we think about ourselves positively, we are stimulating parts of our brains involved in reward, motivation, pleasure, says Dr Stacie Grossman Bloom. According to Dr Stacie Grossman Bloom a neuroscientist who has three daughters who also has a successful career at the NYU Langone Medical Center in New York. She has examined the role neuroscience plays in boosting confidence. This is particularly useful to many people who need exactly that, she writes as part of this year’s 100 Women Challenge. As primary carers or nurtures the mother’s confidence rubs on a child in the formative years of growing up. A happy mother is a happy child and happy family so is important to ensure the confidence of the mother is especially enhanced and supported. It takes a whole village to raise a child so the woman’s confidence is essential for the happiness of the spouse and vice versa. Confidence radiates in a person so is felt by those around that person so necessary to promote positive thinking. The world is so full of negative news it may seem impossible to think or to feel positive at any given moment. However confidence in God is the anchor of hope and joy in spite of adversity.
Confidence in God is unshaken by those circumstances of life having assurance God is still on the throne. Confidence is something many people want but do not know how to get. We need to embrace our abilities, our values and have a self-esteem to be successful. Without it, we are less likely to seek promotion, speak up in meetings and rise into leadership positions. This ultimately has enormous impact as various studies after studies shows having confident people at work in position of power correlates with the profitability collaborative environment and improved problem solving. So with some practice, we can use neuroscience to help to be more confident. The most influential or the inspirational names around the world every year are full of confidence. In 2017, challenging people to tackle the 4 biggest problems facing people today like glass ceiling, female illiteracy, harassment in public spaces and sexism in sport. With the help of all hopefully can be coming up with many real-life solutions and so we want you to get involved with your ideas.
Thinking positively we know enhances self-confidence like all other personality traits reside within our brains. Alhough a large part of architecture of the brain is predetermined yet experiences and the choices we make continue to shape us. Over the course of life we acquire new knowledge, abilities by modulating the intricate and malleable connections between the cells and circuits in brains. We can utilise neuroscience to silence our negative inner voices and boost our confidence. These strategies work by engaging “value areas” of the brain. When we think about ourselves more positively, we are able to stimulate the parts of our brains that are involved in reward, motivation, and pleasure. One output of this pattern of neurological activation is we literally feel good when confident, we hold our heads high.Dr. Bloom with her three daughters
A healthy positive feeling is contagious so promotes those around us to be more engaged with us, whether its colleagues, our friends, or troops. The reinforcing reactions we see and feel in response to our confidence feedbacks to our brains to encourage more activity. So the first step is to push back against obstacles we know stand in our way being mindful of situations and deciding to be confident. Making complex decision is a multi-step process that taps into our emotions and engages many other parts of the brain.
When we have made the decision to be confident, we have to start training our brains. The Above brain scan details by DR. GYORGY BUZSAKI, NEUROSCIENCE INSTITUTE, shows the orange structure here as one of billions of neurons that is often stretching out to make connection (synapses) you see in yellow (more than 75,000). Those connections are what we are tweaking when we learn to choose confidence Just like mastering any other talent, gaining self-assurance requires repetition and time. Every time we do or learn something new, our brains adjust to store our new skill or bit of knowledge. This happens because parts of our brains are plastic and synapses that connect our brain cells, called the neurons, to each other can be modified, strengthened, and even newly created to store what we have acquired in this case confidence boost communication. From a scientific perspective people can blame both nature nurture for stacking the odds against them when it comes to valuing themselves. A biological reality is that women secrete different levels of hormones than men so react differently to the same world around us.This brain scan shows “value areas” of the brain. DR PAUL GLIMCHER AND IFAT LEVY’s image caption reveal tWomen tend to have a desire to please others, to seek acceptance, inclusion and avoid conflict. The way women respond to a stressful situations is different to men. While the men tend to take more risk when under pressure, the women look for the surer solutions and reach out to connect with others to manage stress. These genetic differences are compounded by the fact that we are socialized differently from the moment we are born and a pink hat is placed upon our heads.
As we grow up, young women are not necessarily taught to exhibit any self-confidence, and if we do, we are often criticized for being “snobby” or “stuck-up” or “bitchy” words seldom associated with men. We hear damaging terms like “women’s intuition” suggesting that we aren’t making strategic analyses, but basing our decisions on some ethereal gut feeling but study after study shows women and men equally data driven. And the relentless emphasis placed on how we look erodes our self-image and for most of us, gets worse over time. As a mother of 3 young girls, this resonates every time daughters receive another impossibly-proportioned doll designed for dress up, caregiving, or primping.
Some women in a perceived masculine job are treated with ridicule finding it hard to convince men they are as good and competent as required to do the job even with their identical qualifications trained by exact same Institute. These bias comes in underhand tactics, jokes derogatory of performance and hurtful comments that can affect confidence. It is sometimes deliberately done hoping it drives away unwanted females from an all male exclusive zone. These can be do traumatic for women that it is very necessary to educate men on how to act, behave or talk to women. Especially the women of diversity background raised in serious environments teach respect of the emotional feeling others. Healthy interactions are required in a civilised society that prides itself on equal rights or equal opportunities. Women are still facing hitting a glass ceiling if they also desire promotion by climbing a broken ladder. It is well-documented we way we raise girls and women has a lasting impact on way they view themselves and their abilities. Negative messages will engender self-doubt and lead us to underestimate ourselves. The result is not only a nearly universal feeling of imposter syndrome but fear of making mistakes, suspicion of underperforming unattainable quest for perfection. This is what is shutting down when making a decision to be more confident.
It doesn’t matter what level of self-assurance you start at, the more time and effort you dedicate to practicing being more confident, the faster your brain will change and the faster you’ll master it. So it is important to remove ourselves from situations and people who make you feel bad because confidence largely comes from being in supportive environment. Environment comprises people around us and what we choose to focus our attention on. It is beneficial to concentrate on things that are empowering and to steer clear of exposure to images and contents that make us feel bad about ourselves. The way we choose to hold and to conduct ourselves is another factor. The mental simulations help envisioning ourselves finishing a race, speaking in public to a standing ovation, mastering job, getting a degree can all help build ourselves up. Just as a coach gives encouraging pep talk to the team before taking the field, we can give ourselves a confidence lift. Notably, these practices have an impact on our overall health and wellbeing, serving as buffer to stress, depression, and fostering good mental and physical health. When we choose confidence, we are rewiring our brains and we are able to change ourselves and our world, for the better. So how would you feel if you can become more confident, happier go influence people in a more confident manner. With God all things are possible.
