2 Kings 4:42-44 (NLT): “One day a man from Baal-shalishah brought the man of God a sack of fresh grain and twenty loaves of barley bread made from the first grain of his harvest. Elisha said, ‘Give it to the people so they can eat.’ ‘What?’ his servant exclaimed. ‘Feed a hundred people with only this?” But Elisha repeated, “Give it to the people so they can eat, for this is what the Lord says: Everyone will eat, and there will even be some left over!” And when they gave it to the people, there was plenty for all and some left over, just as the Lord had promised.”
Presentation and Cooperation Are The Breeding Ground for Manifestation. Today I want to speak to you on the subject of “Divine Cooperation.”
Manifestation Is The Result of An Agreeable Transaction. Manifestation: a visible representation of something. Isaiah 1:18-20 (NLT): “’Come now, let’s settle this,’ says the LORD. ‘Though your sins are like scarlet, I will make them as white as snow. Though they are red like crimson, I will make them as white as wool. If you will only obey me, you will have plenty to eat. But if you turn away and refuse to listen, you will be devoured by the sword of your enemies. I, the LORD, have spoken!’”
Presentation Is The Initiation For Manifestation. Presentation: The giving of something to someone, especially as part of a formal ceremony. The Best Gift You Could Give The Lord Is You.
2 Peter 3:9 (NLT): “The Lord isn’t really being slow about his promise, as some people think. No, he is being patient for your sake. He does not want anyone to be destroyed, but wants everyone to repent.”
The Next Best Gift You Could Give The Lord Is Your Obedience. 1 John 5:2-3 (NLT): “We know we love God’s children if we love God and obey his commandments. Loving God means keeping his command-ments, and his commandments are not burdensome.”
Co-Operation Stands Between Your Presentation and Your Manifestation. Cooperation: the process of working together to the same end; Collaboration, working together, joint action, combined effort, teamwork, mutual support, partnership.
