Sphere Mastery

Mastery comes down to distinctions and the ability to adjust yourself to different levels of anointing, so when you are going up to a higher place you have the required spirit, skill, self, state and influence. The distinction is anchored on 30, 60, 100, 1000 fold revelations, you get the revelation at the 30 fold, work it out at 60, multiple its demonstration at 100 & 1000 fold.

It’s amazing to me that there can be this much similarity in the human species and yet so much distinctiveness. It shows is that if we were to do a DNA crime scene investigation now and we looked at your thumbprint or your fingerprint, everyone’s fingerprint here is a unique expression of the individual. That speaks of the nature of the creator. Two characteristics of the God you’re working with is infinite variableness, infinite originality, infinite creativity among principles, patterns and manifestations that are all similar.

Every snowflake is different and yet they are all similar. Every leaf is different, but they are all similar. Every person here is similar, or if you go to the best hospital in the world, they basically can do an operation on any one of you because underneath the skin, the heart’s going to be the same no matter where you go around the world, the internal organs, the eyes, the optics. Yet every one individual is completely unique. It reveals two characteristics of God.

Sphere mastery is a journey that encompass the human spirit, skill, self awareness, state management, influence.

Spirit

Man is made up of a spirit, soul and body. The earthly coat which is perishing has a use by date (expiry date) but the soul and spirit of a man is eternal.

Your human spirit connects you to God. Your spiritual life is the foundation of your life, it holds things together, the human spirit is made up of the communion, conscious and wisdom. The river of life from the throne of grace flows through the communion parts of the spirit.

 

If you want to know how to walk into a room so that when you show up, the environment is affected, you need to discern the sphere that God called you to have pre-eminence in so that when you show up, your spirit dominates.
If you show up with the right spirit, it’s a spirit that’s going to liberate other people, love other people. It’s going to deal with the congestion and the collision of systems, principles, ideas and personalities that are dysfunctional and not getting results. You have authority over what doesn’t work when you’re operating in the area of your anointed.
The anointing is the supernatural ability that God has put upon your life in order to fix something that’s broken, heal something that is sick, straighten out a situation that’s crooked or smooth out something that’s rough.

You have an anointing to fix the problems on planet earth in your sphere. Think about this. You have an anointing to fix the situation, which is why it is so ludicrous from heaven’s perspective to hear God’s people on earth looking at the world get worse and use that as an argument for why Jesus is coming back. Because that hasn’t yet demonstrated Jesus even exists as a solution provider on planet earth.

 

Skill

Skill is ability that come from acumen and practices, its often requires training and experience to do well, and is the result of focused education. We need to know specifically what we are called to do in each phase of our life and channel focused education in that area.

For most specialized skills that can be monetized through products and services, true mastery may require putting into over 10,000 hours, this mastery is the zone of unconscious competence and it burns up the myth of people just falling in to something without creating something without skill.

Some people will say that the beatles and someone like Bill Gates just happen to be at the right place at the right time, but if you look at the story of the beatles, while other bands were looking for some hour of practices per week,  the beatles played together 7 hours per day, 6 days a week for a year, all day long they played music together, imagine the skill that they learnt together, how to start and stop songs, what moved people, the beatles put in 10,000 hours before they broke out.

The story of Bill Gates, Bill went to a high school, where his parents and other parents of the kids in his high school were rich enough to buy the only terminal access from a high school to a colleague mainframe in the US, Bill’s high school had an exclusive access to one of the US top computers, and while the colleague students push through to get a couple of hours here and there and waited on the queue to use the main frame like I did, Bill programmed consistently on the Mainframe, all  night long for several nights, he got 10,000 hour developing his skill.

Timing

We need to be prepared for pivotal momments of life and recognize the times and seasons God has ordained for us.

The story is told of a man who rushed into a suburban station one morning and, almost breathlessly, asked in breathless anticipation/ with bated breath asked the ticket agent: ‘When does the 8:04 train leave?”

“At 8:04,” was the answer.

“Well,” the man replied, “it is 8:02 by my watch, 8:00 by the town clock, and 8:07 by the station clock. Which time am I to go by?”

“You can go by any clock you wish,” said the agent , “but you cannot go by the 8:04 train, for it has already departed”

Time is moving forward hour by hour, minute by minute. There are multitudes who seem to think they can live by any schedule they choose and that , in their own time, they can do what they need to do.

I am reminded of an event I saw in the bible, the bible indicates that this event happened about 1400-1500 BC, a group of Israelites decided to try and possess the land of Canaan the day after God told them the opportunity had passed. They were routed by the Canaanites (Num 14:39-45). The train had already left.

The ability to understand the times gives an insight as to what to do.  Very often we try yo reap during planting season, plant during harvest, run when we should be resting  and rest when it is time to run. This will cause us to miss the train every time.

I am also reminded of a verse I saw in the old testament  “Behold, I will do something new, now it will spring forth; will you not be aware of it? I will even make a roadway in the wilderness, rivers in the desert (Isa 43:19)”

Notice the phrase ” spring forth”, these words mark a shift in time. Something new is about to spring forth. ” Will you not be aware of it ?” He asks. Never give up. Your shift may be closer than you think.

Also notice the word “new”, this speaks again of a shift. In the new testament, two Greek words are translated “new” even though they have different meanings. The word neos means numerically new but not different.  For instance , if you buy a brand new Sony Z smartphone, you have a new phone, but there are hundreds more just like it all over the country. It’s new but it’s not different.

 

The other Greek word for “new” is Kainos, which means not only numerically new but also qualitatively new.  This refers, for example, to a Sony Z# smartphone manufactured today as compared to a an older model. The newly manufactured phone will be numerically and qualitatively new because it’s diferent. Distinguishing the dynamics between these two expressions neos and Kainos  can be very important in our personal and business growth.

From time to time, lobsters have to leave theirs shells in order to grow. They need the shell to protect them from being torn apart; yet when they grow, the old shell must be abandoned. If they did not abandon it, the old shell would soon become their prison and finally their casket.

The tricky part forthe lobster is the brief period of time between when the old shell is discarded and the new one is formed. During that terribly vulnerable period, the transition must be scary to the lobster. We are not so different from lobsters. To change and grow , we must sometimes shed our shells- a structure, a framework- that we’ve depended on.
