THEME : SPIRITUAL CAPACITY PART THREE
BIBLE TEXT : James 4 vs 1-3
MEMORY VERSE Isaiah 54 vs 2
The Spiritual Capacity has revealed to us in the other series that Capacity can be enlarged in this Kingdom. The hidden code to so many horizon in the spirit is when we know Capacity are activated in this Kingdom. The deliberate act to earnestly search for it will open us up to a new level in the spirit. We are men of the spirit and of course we must showcase the power of what we carry. The leverage systems by which men operate is tied to the levels by which they exhibit Spiritual capacities. The moves of men should be backed up with a level of capacity, for we move not by vehicles but by the strength we derive from the Capacity that move us.
James 4:1-3 " From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members? Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not. Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts. ". The bible says where do your wars and fight come from ?. The capacity of the flesh produce wars anfights to the body. The flesh has a capacity to produce desire for war which profit nothing in this Kingdom. As a believer, we need to be careful from where we draw capacity from . In this Kingdom, in as much we are still in the body, the flesh will also want to proof a capacity and acting system .
Concurrently our switch should be to the Spirit where we draw capacity from .
Literally, the capacity of the flesh looks physical but the capacity of the spirit contains the things of God. Our drawing power should rest basically from the things of the Spirit. It is very dangerous when we receive all that the flesh give us because the capacity of the flesh I carnal an profit nothings , level your perception with the word of God. The scripture made an affirmation that we ask and yet we do not receive. At a large scale, men can easily ask things in this Kingdom but it takes capacity to receive. The primary goal of the Spiritual capacity we sustain is to help to receive and install all Kingdom mysteries we have asked. Many are asking things in this Kingdom but not all can receive.
Isaiah 54:2-4 Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thine habitations: spare not, lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes; . For thou shalt break forth on the right hand and on the left; and thy seed shall inherit the Gentiles, and make the desolate cities to be inhabited. Fear not; for thou shalt not be ashamed: neither be thou confounded; for thou shalt not be put to shame: for thou shalt forget the shame of thy youth, and shalt not remember the reproach of thy widowhood any more.
Cardinally, Enlargement in this Kingdom goes along with Capacity. The bible talks about enlargement of the pace of the tent and stretching forth of the curtains of thine habitants. The capacity that you behold in the Spirit will continue to manifest in the physical realm until all men see it. Their is a vast relationship between sight and capacity , that you see in this Kingdom tend to be as a result of what you truly represent . It should always be part of our daily requirement that a capacity is accounted to us to unlock new levels in the spirit. Our over reliance shouldn't make us think that nothing is required of us. We are created as portals to sustain certain capacities an unlock certain levels in the Spirit.
1 Chronicles 4:10 " Now Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, “Oh that You would bless me indeed and enlarge my border, and that Your hand might be with me, and that You would keep me from harm that it may not pain me!” And God granted him what he requested. " . Jabez a man given such name after some bad time from her mother cried to God for Capacity. He cried to God to bless him so that there can be an enlargement in His border an territory.One of the mystery of God's dealing with men is that whenever he tries to bless him, firstly he try to create a capacity in them to receive such enlargement.
The spiritual Capacity of Men that be basically placed on the scale of .
1. Half measure Capacity
2. Full Measure Capacity.
1. Half Measure Capacity :
Our flaunting act of capacity and result shouldn't blindfold us of the measure at which the capacity is operating . In this era, we have seen men that have capacity but not the full level within the domain. In this Kingdom, capacity can be half measure and in hurry to the prospect to which they belong. We need to be careful with results we see all around and within us because most of this doesn't have a rigid stamina to stay. When we showcase half measure of capacity then it even become difficult to comprehend such capacity.
Matthew 25:1-8 Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.'.
On the basis of this ten virgins , we can compare the ten virgins with men with all sort of capacities but the bible made us to understand that there was a division that happened the ten vigins, though with new capacities but was divided into half measure Reader listen to this that is possible to be with the Capacity holder and not with the capacity in this Kingdom . The spiritual capacities that the virgins sustain is by the virtue of oil the extra oil they carried. Men that only travel with the lamp holder without the extra oil on their journey carry a content of half measure .
The journey to meet the bridegroom started and all went with the same capacity, equal but the five wise virgin added another extra capacity, an extra oil. In this Kingdom, you dictate the leverage of your capacity based on what you see. The question I do ask myself is that what could have made the give wise virgins to go with an extra oil. Half measure don't last and can stand the test of time in this Kingdom, we must look forward to something that is beyond half to gain access in this Kingdom.
Isaiah 44:16-18 " He burneth part thereof in the fire; with part thereof he eateth flesh; he roasteth roast, and is satisfied: yea, he warmeth himself, and saith, Aha, I am warm, I have seen the fire: And the residue thereof he maketh a god, even his graven image: he falleth down unto it, and worshippeth it, and prayeth unto it, and saith, Deliver me; for thou art my god. They have not known nor understood: for he hath shut their eyes, that they cannot see; and their hearts, that they cannot understand. ". The spiritual capacity that we behold will tend to give how much we dispense in this Kingdom. Half capacities will want to create room for other penetration that can disturb the usage of the capacity. The bible. verses talked about Idolatry as one of the proof of half capacity. This prophetic chapter categorize them to have as men that can't see and can't understand things in this Kingdom. The Spiritual capacity you sustain will direct you to your source and give you update on how much you know about Him.
1 Corinthians 13:9-12 " For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away. When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known." . The bible says we know in part which is of half measure but when the full part of it come perfection follows . The journey of faith is ever to measure of fullness of Christ not until we reach that level, we remain half capacitated.
2. Full Measure Capacity :
As a believer, one of our aim is to work towards a level where we reach a full measure of Christ. We grow into tjoa dimension until we have come to the full stature of Christ that makes Christ to be glorified. Spiritual Capacity is like a charging system in this Kingdom , and not until you have reached a point where Christ can be fully seen in us . The daily rise in the super power of the spirit move us closer to the full measure of Christ and by doing so, their is rigidity in the outwork of Christ in us.
Ephesians 4 vs 13 "till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; ". The full measure of Christ we attain is what bring about perfection of the new man that we earnestly seek. A system by which the outwork of Christ can be fully seen in us. In this Kingdom our unity in faith and Knowledge of the son of God has a lot to do with the perfection of man that we seek. We obtain full measure capacity by the togetherness of faith that we sustain as a body of Christ and the Knowledge of His son that we have in us. Show me a man that has obtained rise in capacity in this Kingdom and I show you a man that has fully grown in faith and Knowledge.
Romans 15:28-29 " When therefore I have performed this, and have sealed to them this fruit, I will come by you into Spain. And I am sure that, when I come unto you, I shall come in the fulness of the blessing of the gospel of Christ. ". Paul the Apostle was talking here about coming to Rome , he made mention of it in full measure of blessing. Our Aspiration as we continue to emerge in capacity is to a point where our aim is to a full measure in Christ. The Full measure of Capacity will make you drop so many worldy things but follow Christ to the optimum level where he can be transparent in our lives.The Mighty God is the Mighty builder of Capacity to full measure, we must align ourselves to him for an effective capacity in His vineyard. In this Kingdom, our rising has a lot to do with our Spiritual Capacity because we must learn to attain a level where Christ can be fully captured in our lives .
Deuteronomy 25:14-15 " Thou shalt not have in thine house divers measures, a great and a small. But thou shalt have a perfect and just weight, a perfect and just measure shalt thou have: that thy days may be lengthened in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee. ". Our continuous growth in Christ requires a constant rise in Capacity for us to be able to come to the dimension that He truly want us to operate. This bible verse talked about not having diverse measures of great and small buy a perfect and full measure. For the time being that grow up continually in the stature of Christ ,our aim should be of a full measure. The Spiritual capacity has a test of time and at a point in time where much faith and building power is needs to cross certain hurdles of the World.
Cardinally, our full measure of Capacity is not accountable to the level of dispensation but the level of refining fire that prepared us for this great task. The spiritual capacity of full measure prepare men to a level where certain Kingdom realities can be exposed to them. We are almost at the end of time where many are falling and rising in this Kingdom. The real issue is that they have capacity of not full measure, and in this Kingdom when your spiritual capacity is not in alignment to a measure of Christ, one might likely fall and stumble. We must continue to rise as Kingdom giants and envoys as we begin to spread the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Literally, to whom much is give much more is required of him in this Kingdom. It is a very dangerous thing not to walk in alignment with God has bestowed into our lives. The Covenyener of capacity give unto me for the outwork of something great through the grace they carry. Basically on the Capacity we carry, we should always ask ourselves What Can I use this Capacity to do?. Why do I need this spiritual capacity ?.
Are earnest need for capacity is for us :
1. To gain Access to a vast Cosmos.
2. To preach the gospel the more.
3. To stabilize our stay in Christ.
1. To gain Access to a Vast Cosmos :
The cry for access tend to move men to sustain a capacity in the spirit and all across all levels for them to be able to access several places. In this Kingdom, Spiritual Capacities grant men access in form o keys to transport what is in the Spirit realm into the physical. To birth things in this Kingdom requires access from the spirit and so much in return with a key that open the possibility for such result. Practically, a reality that seem difficult in the physical hasn't been activated in the spirit. Whatever you are able to covey in the spirit can be given birth to in the physical .
John 19:38-42 "After these things Joseph of Arimathea, who was a disciple of Jesus, but secretly for fear of the Jews, asked Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus, and Pilate gave him permission. So he came and took away his body. Nicodemus also, who earlier had come to Jesus by night, came bringing a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about seventy-five pounds in weight. So they took the body of Jesus and bound it in linen cloths with the spices, as is the burial custom of the Jews. Now in the place where he was crucified there was a garden, and in the garden a new tomb in which no one had yet been laid. So because of the Jewish day of Preparation, since the tomb was close at hand, they laid Jesus there. "
Momentarily, this bible passage showcase men have access to certain spiritual things when there is a capacity that give them access. Joseph of Arimathea a disciple of our Lord Jesus Christ but has a secret fear for Jews asked permission to take the body Of Jesus for proppwr burial. Without much negotiations, permission was granted to them, not even Mary her mother that stood at cross and cried was able to take the body from the Cross. The spiritual Capacity we sustain will make us have access to several possessions of Christ that even people that were to close couldn't get. The capacity is always ready to grant us permission beyond our own seek. Generals and Kingdom giants are rising not just to be believers of Christ alone but to be able to sustain a capacity that send us far in this journey of faith. The Keys and access you are able to obtain now through capacity will launch you into a deeper field of where your desire .
The continuous trials of our faith requires a full measure of capacity and space . There are things we don't even want to do but as a result of the situation we find ourselves, one way or the other we still find ourselves indulging in such habit. All believers are saved souls through the precious blood that serve as a ransome for our sins and errors. On the account of this, there is a need for us to continue to flourish in Christ and stabilize our stay in Him. Our Lord Jesus Christ operated at a higher level of Spiritual Capacity that made him not to commit not even a single sin during His 33years on earth. We must try by all means to let this mind of Christ be in us . For a day is coming when your capacity will be tested . The Messiah expanded his stay across all Nations because he was able to understand the ethics of Spiritual Capacity.To preach the gospel the More : The gospel need men that would carry it across all boundaries and corners of the World. Men need to circulate this good news of our Lord Jesus but many need still lack the capacity that backs it up. The spiritual capacity is much more enough to light up men into the areas where the word will reach out to many. The messangers in all ramifications must sit down with God to wait for the capacity that send them forth. The gospel still cry for men but many dugde this capacity. The work of the gospel which is Christ as a Savior to many that receive need me that can carry the work Load. At a large scale , the capacity will make you to reject so many things you like just for God to be gloried and Christ be revealed to as many.
2 Timothy 2:24-26 . And the Lord's servant must not be quarrelsome but kind to everyone, able to teach, patiently enduring evil, correcting his opponents with
gentleness. God may perhaps grant them repentance leading to a knowledge of the truth, and they may come to their senses and escape from the snare of the devil, after being captured by him to do his will. The varsity of men demand from them a need for enlargement. We have so many pastors that can preach the gospel beyond the pulpit. They find it difficult to preach gospel of Christ before other sectors of life they find themselves.
Alas, it is time we cry to our Lord God to bestow a grace that would make us stand firm in Christ. The capacity we derive from God would make us go full length in dispensing the true gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. The world has a limited capacity, we must find means to break the barrier . Men are rising but are they rising with a capacity of the spirit to make them carry what it takes. The end time requires men of the spirit that can go far in the spirit to dispense the truth of the word and the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. The gospel requires men that carry capacity which will enable them go far in this Kingdom for the sake of Christ.
Romans 1:13-16 " Now I would not have you ignorant, brethren, that oftentimes I purposed to come unto you, (but was let hitherto,) that I might have some fruit among you also, even as among other Gentiles. I am debtor both to the Greeks, and to the Barbarians; both to the wise, and to the unwise. So, as much as in me is, I am ready to preach the gospel to you that are at Rome also. For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. "
Moreover, a great Apostle of Jesus Paul wasn't ashamed of preaching the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ .He had the grace to far telling other nearbky countries about Christ as a result of the Capacity he has obtained. In this Kingdom, there is a capacity that set men on a high speed for God to go across all levels to preach the gospel. We need expansion at where we preach the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ because even said in one of His words that across part of the World. There is a capacity that is capable of pushing men across all levels and miles to deliver the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. Literally, one of the aim of Paul is to make sure that he bear fruit where ever he has the capacity to show forth a capacity. We rise in this Kingdom when we have allowed the capacity God has given us to expand the gospel of our Lord Jesus.
John 21 vs 15-16 " When they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these?” He said to him, Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” He said to him, “Feed my lambs.” He said to him a second time, “Simon, son of John, do you love me? He said to him, Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” He said to him, Tend my sheep.” He said to him the third time, Simon, son of John, do you love me?”Peter was grieved because he said to him the third time, “Do you love me? and he said to him, Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you.” Jesus said to him, Feed my sheep. "
On the basis of this text, our Lord Jesus Christ was reconfirming His love in Simon Peter to make Him ask Peter the question three times. He was confirming a capacity in Peter to go after what Christ will leave behind. There is a capacity that can enable a man to look after a lamb and sheep. The expansion through capacity can give rise to this possibility. When you're still staganated at preaching the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ then a capacity is still needed of you, many are ahead proclaiming it to many that need to hear about this good news. Alas, Cry now to God for a capacity that give speed for the great work ahead of you.
Prior to the other parts of this teaching, Our Lord Jesus Christ remain the true giver of Capacity in this Kingdom. Our rise and growing in Him come with a capacity in the spirit, and with this comes a sustainment to attach the Kingdom of darkness. We don't do this based on our human strength but from the strength that the capacity bestow on us. The enlargement that comes from our spirit man stablize our stay in Christ and make us look rigid for the sake of the gospel.
Colossians 1:9-10 " For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; . That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God; "
Our Increment must come in Him through the Spiritual Capacity that we attain in Him. The mysteries of this Kingdom requires men that can sustain a capacity of the spirit to be able to behold it. The bibles says since the day we heard it , do not cease to pray. Our continuous rise in him demand a high Level of Spiritual understanding. The ability to comprehend possibilities of the Kingdom. More Access are given to those that have grown to the full stature of Christ . I pray the Mighty God bless us as we continue to grow and develop our capacity in Him
