The Genesis Principle 1: Knowing The Power Of Starting Right

  •  
    Heb_12:2  looking to Jesus the Author and Finisher of our faith
     
    Rosh Hashanah means the "head of the year." It is also called the Feast of the
    Trumpets. The ram's horn was a trumpet in Biblical times to announce the new moon
    or month. God marked the beginnings of all things: the first born, the first fruit, the
    first month, the tithe.  So obviously, there must be major significance to the “First or
    Start”!
     
    Let’s have a look at the synonyms for “start”: dawn, spring, initiate, birth, originate,
    begin, commence, count down, foundation, take off then, the most important Bible
    Words: Alpha, Author, Head, Genesis.
     
    Dawn is the beginning and the most beautiful part of a day.  Spring is the beginning of
    all seasons with a good supply of rain and moderate temperature , it’s the time for new
    growth .   The start is vital, foundational!  Why? The start is when the soil is prepared,
    the seeds are sown, the sprouts take root, become strengthened, established, then
    shoot up and grow to become a fruit bearing tree.  The Start is when you decide your
    location, direction, foundation in order to launch off, to arrive at your target, to
    achieve your goal, to fulfil your desires and dreams.  Unless one starts right, he is not
    going to finish right.  There will be regrets, costly alterations, waste of time, energy
    and money along the way if we do not spend quality time examining, checking and
    confirming whether our beginning is right and good!
     
    God decrees the importance of the starting year of a new marriage in Deu 24:5. 
    UNICEF says the first few years of life have a major influence on child's success later
    in life – from good health and success in school, to the level of self-esteem and social
    skills.  God has put the Genesis Principle in place so that we pay attention to how we
    start our life, our children’s life and all other works that we do.

Thanksgiving 

Thanksgiving is the best way to finish the year of 2015!  It is the Lord who has watched over us so faithfully every day, in all the details of our daily events.  Do not take for granted the bad things that did not happen to us!  The absence of evil is the presence of Good; the goodness of the Lord!  

Psa 91:7  A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. 

Thank God for His divine protection, He has compassed us round about with His divine shield!  What a privileged position we are in, covered by His blood, surrounded by His angels! 
If you would check the happenings of 2015, you will give Him thanks for His divine orchestration of events.  You would be able to see His Higher hands conducting, managing and shifting things for us to shield, provide for, favor and train us for our excellence!  
Thanksgiving is gratitude: a grateful spirit that rises up from within you to express your heart felt thankfulness to God!  It is powerful, transformational and uplifting!  

1Ch 16:8  Give thanks unto the LORD, call upon his name, make known his deeds among the people. 
It is good to remember specifically what God has done for you, to testify and thank Him in private and in public!  Your thanksgiving will stir up the faith and the love of your listeners. 

Psa_26:7  That I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all thy wondrous works. 
Angels will be brought into your world through thanksgiving and demons will flee from you.  Paul talks about overflowing with thanksgiving, meaning you can be so taken up and established with the goodness of the Lord that you are dripping all over with it!  What a great position to be in! 

Col_2:7  Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving. 
Thanksgiving is a sacrifice that delights the Lord and bless the giver.  The voice of thanksgiving builds up for you a powerful spiritual atmosphere for angelic ministry, healings and miracles!  Jesus multiplied the bread and the fish with the prayer of thanksgiving.   A grateful heart is a beautiful heart in the sight of God and men!  The Holy Spirit will give you a supernatural recall of all that He has done for you in the year 2015 and you will be filled with the spirit of thanksgiving and be blessed of the Lord!  Amen!

Exaltation

Psa_57:5, 11  Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens: let thy glory be above all the earth. 
 
The Word exalted means to be lifted up, to be high above!  “On high” is a powerful position, you get to see everything, to have the best and advantageous perspective.  A commander needs a high up position in order to come up with winning strategies.  A watch tower needs to be put on a high mountain in order to give signals to the incoming ships or planes.  Visual clarity is vital to making sound judgments and right decisions!  God wants us to operate from on high not below!
 
As we progress in life, we leave off childishness, move into maturity, be promoted to authority and ascend to spirituality!  The spiritual realm is the highest and the commanding realm; and the blood of Jesus has given us access into that realm to command victory on earth.
 
Heb 10:19  Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, 
Heb 10:20  By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh
 
God has ordained for His church, for His nation to occupy the highest, commanding position.  You must know where you have been placed in order to function successfully on earth!
 
Isa_2:2  And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD'S house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it.
 
Not only has God exalted our position but also our words
 
1Sa_2:1  And Hannah prayed, and said, My heart rejoiceth in the LORD, mine horn is exalted in the LORD: my mouth is enlarged over mine enemies; because I rejoice in thy salvation.
 
When you pray, you pray from a high and commanding position!  Your mouth has been enlarged over the devil, you can shut him up and put him down!  Praise the Lord!  So make up your mind not to dwell in the low lying marshes but arise and shine, soar and go up to the high places, for that is where your inheritance is.
Psa_18:33  He makes my feet like hinds' feet, and sets me upon my high places.
Isa_58:14  Then shall you delight yourself in the LORD; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth

Progress Not Stagnation

There has to be a momentum in your life, not stagnancy!  We are made to progress, to go greater and higher every day!  
Psa 84:7  They go from strength to strength, every one of them in Zion appeareth before God.
See life as a learning curve and every problem that comes your way, a hurdle for you to jump over, to ascend to greater heights.  The weight and pressure of the devil acts as the weight of a body builder, to build his muscle and not to crush nor to break him.  Let your mind stay positive in the Love of your heavenly Father, for He will never leave you nor forsake you.  Your life is going up, progressing steadily, not spiralling down nor staying stagnant!  It is important that you choose an upbeat, positive and faith building atmosphere instead of a lukewarm and slow moving environment.
Eze 47:11  Its swamps and its marshes shall not even be healed; they shall be given to salt.
A swamp is an area of low-lying, uncultivated ground where water collects.  It is stagnant, with no flow, no movement.  It becomes a breeding ground for pests and destructive forces!  Take stock of your life, is it stagnant with entertainment, chores and tasks or is it filled with visions, goals, plans, services, prayers, praise and thanksgiving?
Surround yourself with positive, encouraging visionaries and high achievers in Christ Jesus!   The kingdom of Jesus Christ is always advancing in, through and around you!  Never stagnant!
Psa 92:12  The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree; he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.
Your life is made to flourish, to thrive, to bear fruit for others, to bring shadow to the weary!  You are made to grow, flourish and multiply.  Is that how you see yourself?  Your self-perception is vital!  Don’t ever see yourself as a loser!  Christ is in you!
2Co 3:18  But we all, with our face having been unveiled, having beheld the glory of the Lord as in a mirror, are being changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.
The Spirit of the Lord is upon you and inside of you to transform and to promote you from being carnal, worldly and natural to being spiritual, heavenly and glorious!  Yield to the Spirit, yield to the demand for growth to be lifted up to the realm of glory!  Amen!

Mature and not Childish

We are made for growth.  God has created us for progressive growth: physically from a baby to an adult; in our soul, maturity of character and in our spirit, divine God likeness.  Our physical growth is a gift from God that we do not have to do anything ourselves but the growth of our soul and spirit is very much our responsibility, it does not come automatically.  We have been created and designed for growth but we have to choose and assert ourselves for that to happen.  
Isa_9:6  For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given
December is the month that we celebrate the birth of Jesus as a baby, this child was born for us, to carry our sin, to save our souls.  The maturity of Jesus as a son was given to us by His own choice and sacrifice!  Jesus chose to grow up for us. He chose to mature in His manhood, in His spiritual submission to the will of the Father for us.  Maturity is a choice, a goal and a direction that we must take.  Maturity will promote and carry you in the right direction of your God given destiny.  
Gal_4:1  Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differs nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all;
What is maturity?  It means not childish: not controlled, bound, intimidated, dictated and moulded by what is around you but being able to form a sound judgment, act wisely and go through the process with integrity and fortitude.  
1Co 13:11  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.
We have to purposefully put off childish thoughts, emotions, self-will and behaviour.  Growth is a choice!
Eph 4:14  That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine…
Eph 4:15  But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:
A child is subject to the lies of the devil, a victim if without protection; an adult is a judge, a defender, a conqueror, a winner!  The difference between the two: maturity!
Without maturity, no one can be trusted with the authority and power of Jesus Christ!
