Psalm 102:13 KJV
The strength of the believer in this kingdom is the degree and the extent of light that you have. The extent of your spiritual illumination is where your strength is derived from
Luke 19:42-44 KJV, 1 Chronicles 12:32 KJV
Genesis 1:14 KJV
1. As far as our work on Earth is concerned, our activities on Earth are a function of times and seasons. Everything you do on Earth must be done in time. Ecclesiastes 3:2-4 KJV
2. When it comes to the dealing of men, God subscribes to times and seasons.
Chronos – Sequential time. Passage of time. Sequential time.
Kairos – Opportune time it means defining seasons
There is a dimension of grace that comes with every time and every season.
There are graces and there are possibilities that are attached to every time. Ecclesiastes 3:11 KJV
Time is so important the Bible tells us in Psalm 90:12 KJV to number our days. There is a relationship between your walking in wisdom and time and seasons.
Ephesians 5:15-17 KJV, John 9:4 KJV.
The zenith of dominion is dominion over time not over things.
In every man’s life, Chronos remains with us for as long as we are alive.
Kairos – This opportune time does not come all the time.
You must understand the timing component of life.
When you understand the power of time, you will now know why God brought in two spiritual mysteries to help men to maximize destiny. Number 1: Speed
Number 2: Restoration.
When you are in your Chronos moment, it is found in Genesis 1:14 KJV
You can use light to discern the time you are in.
How do you prepare for this defining moment this opportune season?
You prepare for kairos by maximizing Chronos.
When nobody sees you it’s your greatest stage.
When God wants to accelerate your life, he will wait until the day your destiny helpers are before you and that one opportunity.
You announce yourself by being faithful in your everyday.
Your preparation during your chronos seasons is what prepares you for that Kairos moment.
Kairos moments are not necessarily location-dependent, you need to be prepared in season and out of season, it can happen anywhere.
There are three things you do to maximize time and seasons
- Master the art of discerning seasons. To understand and discern the time. You use the word of God is the primary instrument of discernment.
Discern the spirit that is within you. Anytime you see a day of favor, a day of favor is equal to many days of preparation. A day of manifestation is cumulative of utilized cumulative of many great days. We continue to abort seasons because we waste our everyday.
When announces you, it is because he has given you an opportunity to prepare. The Kairos moment is the greatest time in human history right now for the global harvest.
- You must know what steps to take when you come into seasons (2 Corinthians 6:2 KJV). The acceptable time for the beleiver started from the time Jesus Resurrected. In Christ, we can have access to our now. The moment you define your season, begin to ask and pray for mercy.
There are 3 levels of authority that a man can command on Earth
1. Authority over things. e.g money
2. Authority over nations and territories.
3. Authority over God’s program. God makes you a steward of his program.
