Whose Voice are You Following?

Whose Voice are you Following?
Memory Verse:
“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me” (John 10:27).
Beloved,
If you are truly born again by willingly accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour ( John 3:3-6), it is very important that you recognise and hear the VOICE of God in Christ and follow Him.
The truth is that in Christ, God speaks to us daily. Unfortunately, within the body of Christ, not many children of God are able to recognise and hear the voice of God in Christ.
The big question is: How do you recognise the voice of God in Christ. At any given time, a person may hear a voice from four sources: The voice of God; the voice of the devil;  the person’s own voice;  and the voice of others in direct or indirect contact or communication with the person. It takes the grace of God to be able to distinquish between these voices at any given time. Some people say that that the voice of God is always a gentle still voice(1 Kings 19:12). The truth is that God has many ways of speaking to His children. What is required of us is to ask and receive the gift of discerning between spirits (1 Cor 12:10).
Prayer, fasting, worshiping God in Christ, create the right atmosphere and channel for voice of the Holy Spirit to be heard with clarity. The bible says:
“As they ministered to the Lord, and fasted, the Holy Ghost said, Separate me Barnabas and Saul for the work whereunto I have called them”(Acts 13:2).
Brethren, if you can LEARN to hear from the Holy Spirit of God, and be led by him,it would make your Christian life interesting and exciting. How can you be a child of God but not able to hear from your Father? Sin, disobedience, separation and distance can keep us away from hearing from Him ( Isa 59:1-2). If we allow the words of God to dwell in our hearts and  spirits, these will guide us into what the Holy Spirit is saying. The Scripture says the Holy Spirit only speaks what He hears (from the Word):
“Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come “( John 16:13).
Without hearing from God in Christ, it will be difficult to follow Him. There are many people out there calling the name Jesus, but who are not followers of Jesus Christ. Jesus Himself says:
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber”( John 10:1).
Prayer: As you meditate on the word of God, receive the grace to hear and follow the voice of the Holy Spirit of God in Christ, in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
Receive increasing spiritual understanding in Jesus name.  Amen.
PRAYER: There is someone reading this message, receive the grace to cleave and look unto Jesus without looking back in Jesus name. Amen

In the Ministry Of the Word (MOW)-Acts 6:4, we primarily encourage and empower believers to be rich in the words of God: “let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom” (Col 3:16). The entrance of the WORD is the true source of LIGHT in a dark world(Ps 119:130). We also encourage believers to speak to one another “in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs(Eph 5:19). We encourage everyone to “seek first the kingdom of God  his righteousness”..Matt 6:33). We stress that: Righteousness exalts a person (Prov 14:34). We emphasize that pure Christianity is about True Spirituality in Christ Jesus. We emphasize that the POWER in the blood of Jesus has set us FREE from all forms of bondage, ignorance, disease and that where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty (2Cor 3:17). Jesus  Christ is the Word of God (John 1:1; Rev 19:13). We emphasise that Jesus  is the Truth (John 14:6). The words of God are spirit & are Life(John 6:63). We allow the Scriptures to answer all questions. We avoid the dilution, misinterpretation or deliberate corruption of the words of God. We create the awareness that Jesus has made all true believers kings and priests unto God and his Father(Rev 1:6). In addition, aside from soul winning, as a spiritual body, we also empower unbelievers with knowledge using the principles of our Lord Jesus Christ with the understanding that when they witness the power of the living God, they will be compelled to believe and exalt His  holy name (Psalm 46:10).
One major objective of MOW is to increasingly improve everyone’s spiritual understanding! Spiritual ignorance is a major cause of human destruction(Hosea 4:6). Indeed, many children of God have gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge (Isa 5:13). Indeed, “through knowledge shall the just be delivered” (Prov 11:9). We are established by the righteousness in the word of God (Isa 54:14).

We shall Recover All.

Theme:
We shall Recover All.
 
 
Memory Verse:  
“And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you”
 (Joel 2:25)
 
 
Beloved, 
On behalf of MOW, we are pleased to welcome you to your month of TOTAL recovery.  
 
Spiritually, the month of September is symbolic of total restoration, complete recovery, fruitfulness, joy and glory.
 
I do not know what you have lost over the years but one thing I do know is that if you have FAITH and you are walking in the TRUTH, you will enjoy total RESTORATION of everything you have lost, in that name that is above every other name. Amen. This is the promise from the Word as per our memory verse.
 
However,  for total recovery and to be fruitful, the LORD says you should avoid shallow water or the so called “moderate risk”, but rather you should spiritually launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught (Luk 5:4).
 
 
Fear often prevent many true believers from taking the necessary steps required for their fruitfulness. Our Father himself is very much aware of this, hence He commands us to Fear Not (Gen 15:1), in up to about 365 times in the bible. God is very much aware that we are victims of our fears. The only one the LORD wants us to fear, is Himself, which according to Him, is the beginning of wisdom (Ps 111:10).
 
 
Brethren,  as Christians, we are at war.  Fear is real in true spirituality warfare, partly because many of our enemies are not visible to the natural eyes.  For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers …Eph 6:12.
However, we need not be afraid once we abide in him (John 15:7).  We are never alone. We are the extension of the Lord of hosts. We are not fighting on our own strength(Zech 4:6). God in Christ is our senior partner. He is the invisible worker and a warrior indeed.
 
So Arise and shine..(Isa 60:1). In true spirituality warfare, you need Esther’s mindset of  “if I perish I perish”(Esther 4:16),to fully claim your lost glory. 
 
You will recovery everything you have lost in Jesus name. Yes, we shall recover all.
 
 
 
 
Prayer: Standing on the authority of the word of God, I prophesy that you shall shall recover All your lost glory if you abide in Him. Receive the faith of total recovery in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
 
 
 
 
Receive increasing spiritual understanding in Jesus name.  Amen. 
 
 
 
 
PRAYER: There is someone reading this message, receive the grace to cleave and look unto Jesus without looking back in Jesus name. Amen

The Power of Expectation

24 AUGUST 2014
True Spirituality (TS).
Improving our Spiritual Understanding.
Theme: The Power of Expectation.
Memory Verse:
“For surely there is an end; and thine expectation shall not be cut off” (Prov 23:18).
Beloved,
The expectation of the righteous shall not be cut off. What you hold unto faithfully, shall come to pass, provided it is in line with the word of God. What are your daily expectations when you get up in the morning? There is power in your expectations. Your daily expectations are related to the level of your FAITH, which increases with hearing the word of God.
You might have been born again for years, but if you expect NOTHING  daily, you get NOTHING. Your faith and expectations are predominantly related to your thoughts, imaginations and knowledge. Remember, as a man thinketh in his heart so is he (Prov 23:7).
Beloved,  your heavenly Father is not limited in anything. He is unlimited in power, knowledge, wisdom, understanding etc. He has more than PHD in every available subject under the sun.  He is present everywhere at ALL TIMES(no other BEING shares this divine nature). He is the Almighty.  With Him, nothing is impossible. He “quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were” (Romans 4:17). Unfortunately, human being tend to limit God in their thoughts, words and actions. Even within the body of Christ (the Church), many children of God limit God. This ought not be so. Most of the time, even in our prayer and asking, we limit Him, despite His assurance:
“Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us ( Eph 3:20).
Remember, you cannot rise beyond your thoughts and expectations. Your expectation is linked to your faith. In life, it is to you according to your faith ( Matt 9:29).
Henceforth , on a daily basis, expect upward positive change in your life. Jesus is eager to draw you higher and higher if only you are willing to lift Him up in praise, worship, holiness, righteousness etc. He says:
“And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me” (John 12:32).
On a daily basis, let us lift up Jesus in our thoughts, words and deeds. In return, daily expect  the FIRE in the Word to purify  and sanctify  you (Jn 17:17).  Expect the wisdom and the power of God to be manifested in your life because this is the divine nature of Christ ( 1 Cor 1:24). Expect goodness and mercy ( Psalm 23:6). Expect God to give you power to get wealth ( Deu 8:18) etc.
 Expect daily  challenges,  but also expect sufficient grace from God to go through the challenges(2Cor 12:9).
Receive increasing spiritual understanding in Jesus name.  Amen.
PRAYER: There is someone reading this message, receive the grace to sustain daily  high expectation through unbreakable CONNECTION to God through His words  in Jesus name. Amen!

The Law of Harvest.

Improving our Spiritual Understanding.
Theme: The law of Harvest!
Memory Verse:
Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap (Gal 6:7)
Beloved,
In this season of the LORD doing a New Thing for us, if there is one thing you must know increasingly and pay great attention to on a daily basis, it is the law of harvest. The  law of harvest is divine, very potent and powerful.
It is so important to God that He himself respects and obeys it. Indeed, we understand from the scripture that God sowed His only beloved Son, Jesus Christ to humanity, so that He  would have many more sons (John 1:12; Romans 8:19).
 The law of harvest works for both the believers and the unbelievers.  Some people call it the law of Karma. Some call it the law of retributive justice. You may call it whatever you like, but believe me, we reap exactly what we sow.  If we sow sparingly, we reap sparingly. If we sow weed we reap weed. If we sow junk, we reap junk. If we sow goodness, we reap goodness.  However, it is important to know that the harvest is always greater than the seed.
Brother Paul admonishes us: “But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully”(2Cor 9:6).
According Prophet Obadiah: “For the day of the LORD is near upon all the heathen: as thou hast done, it shall be done unto thee: thy reward shall return upon thine own head “(Obadiah v15).
Unfortunately, many people in the Church  deprive themselves of blessings inherent in daily obedience of the law of harvest.  Everyone has a SEED to sow. Everyone has an opportunity  to help humanity by working with the Lord. It could be through words of ENCOURAGEMENT or act of kindness in our neigbour hood  or place of work. Remember,  whatever you do, do it as to the Lord and not for man in accordance with the Word:
“And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men…”(Col 3:23-24).
Sowing can be physical (material things), mental (fruitfulness of the mind or mental ideas) and spiritual (things relating to the kingdom of God). We can sow in money, time, goodness, kindness, mercy, honesty, transparency, compassion, righteousness, integrity, purity, truth etc. We can sow even in our thoughts, words and deeds.  We have to be diligent so that we do not sow both good seed and bad seed (weed) out of ignorance.
God himself is very much in obedience of this law. He relates to us according to how we relate to Him. The Psalmist tells us this much: “With the merciful thou wilt shew thyself merciful; with an upright man thou wilt shew thyself upright. With the pure thou wilt shew thyself pure; and with the froward thou wilt shew thyself forward”(Ps 18:25-26).
Jesus himself says:  Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy (Matt 5:7). So if we want God to be merciful to us, we have to be merciful to others. Again, He says: Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God (Matt 5:8). So if we desire to see God, we have to sow in purity. If you want God to forgive you, forgive others when they wrong you: “But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses” (Mark 11:26).
 Beloved, in Christ Jesus, we have not been saved to sit down and be grumbling, murmuring, complaining or live a miserable life. We have been saved to go out and sow good seed. You obtain a great reward for every soul you win to Christ, especially when you guide such soul to maturity. Believe me, no matter your present situation, you have got something to sow. What is that in your hand? What is that in your lip? What is that in your heart? What is that in your tongue? Always remember to sow in purity, hence, brother Paul admonished Timothy: “Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned “(1Tim 1:5).
Brother Peter enables us to know that nothing can ever harm us if we are diligent followers of goodness:
“And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good?” ( 1 Peter 3:13).
Think no evil towards any man, and no evil from any one will prosper in your life in Jesus Name.
To have increasing spiritual knowledge, requires total fear of God, and  spiritual training in the word of God:  “Train yourself to be godly” (1Tim 4:7-8 NIV).
PRAYER: There is someone reading this message , may you receive the grace to sow good seed even in difficult times in Jesus name. Amen!

Is Christ Living in You?

10 August 2014
Ministry of the Word (MOW):
True Spirituality (TS).
Improving our Spiritual Understanding.
Theme: Is Christ Living in you?
Memory  Verse:
“Christ in you, the hope of glory (Col 1:27b).
Beloved,
Without Christ living in you, Christianity becomes an empty religon. The bible calls this revelation a mystery, hidden from man for ages past:
“To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles” (Col 1:27a).
Brethren, any other thing you hold unto trustingly, apart from Christ is an idol. Anything else you put your trust in, other than Jesus Christ may fail you. The truth is that anything Christ can not do for you, nobody else can. Any disease Jesus cannot heal, no doctor can. Let your focus be on Christ alone. In everything, cleave to Him with everything you have. Looking unto Jesus… (Heb 12:2).
The Bible enables us to know that Jesus is the Word of God ( John 1:1). All things were created by the  word of God: “All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made”( John 1:3). In him was life; and the life was the light of men(John 1:4). The word of God dwelling in our hearts keep us away from sin ( Ps 119:11).
Beloved, having accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour,  there is need to allow Christ to be formed in your heart, through meditating on the word of God. This is Apostle Paul prayer to every true Christian:
“My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you” (Gal 4:19). Until Christ is fully formed in your heart, he may never live in you. If Christ is not living in you,  you may never enjoy a stable presence of the Holy Spirit. The Lord is that Spirit (2Cor3:17). Our body is the temple of God (1 Cor 3:17).
As a child of God, you have been recreated for greatness in Christ Jesus. However, you need the Holy Spirit in the Word working through you daily, for you to achieve greatness. He says: “Without me you can do nothing” ( John 15:5).
“For in him we live, and move, and have our being” ( Acts 17:28).
Pastor Adeboye of RCCG, in one of his messages in his Open Heavens, recently reminded us of the Law of Inertia:  “A body maintains its state of REST or uniform growth unless acted upon by external force”. Based on my own personal experience, the best internal and external force that can act on any one is the Holiness Spirit of God, in Christ Jesus. He acted on Jesus ( Acts 10:38), and today, the entire world revolves around Him. He acted on Saul of Tarsus, now Apostle Paul, ( Acts 9: 4-6), on his way to Damascus, and Paul became a foremost and an outstanding Apostle for Christ etc. Jesus assured every true believer of this divine empowerment ( Acts 1:8). Ask and it shall be given to you. We ( in MOW) , strongly encourage you to desire the Holy Spirit above all other person or thing in life. He is the best friend you could ever have. He is your LIGHT.  He is reliable and faithful.
If Christ is formed in you, if Christ is living in you, you are destined for greatness. Have a Spirit-filled month in Jesus name.
 To have increasing spiritual knowledge, requires total fear of God, and spiritual training in the word of God: “Train yourself to be godly”… (1Tim 4:7-8 NIV).
PRAYER POINT:   My Father and my God, please contend with anything that is contending with  Christ in my life, in Jesus mighty name. Amen!

Your Month of New Beginning.

Ministry of the Word (MOW):

Theme: Your Month of New Beginning!
Memory  Verse:
“And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful” (Rev 21:5).
Beloved,
Welcome to your month of New Beginning.  Symbolically, the month of August represents a new beginning. The Lord is about to make all things NEW for us. However we have to be willing and obedient.
The promise to do a New Thing for His true children is a covenant promise. Please, try and KEY IN because “it is done”:
“And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely” ( Rev 21:6). Yes, write this down.
The question is : Are you thirsty for things money cannot buy? Are you thirsty for holiness, purity,  integrity, faithfulness, righteousness etc. Jesus himself says:
“Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled” ( Matt 5:6
He says: Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert (Isa 43:19). Please, do not worry yourself trying to figure out how God is going to do it. Everything about God in Christ Jesus, is supernatural, beyond the visible.  In another place, He says even the heathen will marvel at His work and find it difficult to believe His works in us and through us: Behold ye among the heathen, and regard, and wonder marvellously: for I will work a work in your days, which ye will not believe, though it be told you (Hab 1:5).
The requirement from us is willingness and obedience (Isaiah 1:19). Jesus is the head of all principalities & power (Col 2:10). Everyone who has Jesus fully formed in him, has been spiritually recreated to influence and dominate his environment with the power of the Holy Spirit. Jesus himself was very conscious of the enormous power he gave to his disciples, hence he reassured us: Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father (John 14:12).
Also, holiness is a key factor in the new thing the Lord is doing. This is because the Holy Spirit( the power of God), can not dwell and operate in the atmosphere of impurity. Apostle Paul explained this clearly to all true believers:
“Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are” ( 1 Cor 3:16-17).
If you are truly born again, then you are for signs and wonders (Mark 16:17-20). Enough of running around looking for someone to pray for you or see vision for you. Jesus says:  Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you (Luke 10:19). Brother Paul truly tapped into the anointing & power in Christ Jesus, so much that his handkerchiefs were healing the sick (Acts 19:2). He made us to understand that the kingdom of God is not merely in words but in power: “For the kingdom of God is not in word, but in power”(1Cor 4:20).
Brethren, may this month be your new beginning indeed. However, for your new beginning to be manifested, you have to arise spiritually. A key principle in life is that nothing happens for nothing.  If you are not ready to do something different from what you have been doing, the chances are that nothing NEW will happen. A new beginning starts with a new way of thinking! A new way of speaking! A new way of behavior! Thinking, speaking, and acting in line with the Way (John 14:6).
Have a Spirit-filled month in Jesus name.
 To have increasing spiritual knowledge, requires total fear of God, and spiritual training in the word of God: “Train yourself to be godly”… (1Tim 4:7-8 NIV).
PRAYER: There is someone reading this message, may you receive the grace of a NEW BEGINNING, in Jesus mighty name. Amen!

In the Ministry Of the Word (MOW)-Acts 6:4, we primarily encourage and empower believers to be rich in the words of God: “let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom” (Col 3:16). The entrance of the WORD is the true source of LIGHT in a dark world(Ps 119:130). We also encourage believers to speak to one another “in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs(Eph 5:19). We encourage everyone to “seek first the kingdom of God  his righteousness”..Matt 6:33). We stress that: Righteousness exalts a person (Prov 14:34). We emphasize that pure Christianity is about True Spirituality in Christ Jesus. We emphasize that the POWER in the blood of Jesus has set us FREE from all forms of bondage, ignorance, disease and that where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty (2Cor 3:17). Jesus  Christ is the Word of God (John 1:1; Rev 19:13). We emphasise that Jesus  is the Truth (John 14:6). The words of God are spirit & are Life(John 6:63). We allow the Scriptures to answer all questions. We avoid the dilution, misinterpretation or deliberate corruption of the words of God. We create the awareness that Jesus has made all true believers kings and priests unto God and his Father(Rev 1:6). In addition, aside from soul winning, as a spiritual body, we also empower unbelievers with knowledge using the principles of our Lord Jesus Christ with the understanding that when they witness the power of the living God, they will be compelled to believe and exalt His  holy name (Psalm 46:10).
One major objective of MOW is to increasingly improve everyone’s spiritual understanding! Spiritual ignorance is a major cause of human destruction(Hosea 4:6).

Who is Your Best Friend?

Improving our Spiritual Understanding.
Theme: Who is Your Best Friend?
Memory Verse:

” Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you”.
(John 15:14).
Beloved,

The Lord is leading me to ask you some vital questions:
Who is your best friend in this world? Who is your mentor? Who do you trust most? Who do you often turn to for guidance? Who do you often speak to? Who do you rely on, all the time?

Brethren, if you LEARN to make the Holy Spirit your best friend, mentor, trust, and guidance, you can never go wrong in life. Please, children note that having the Holy Spirit as your mentor should enable you to obey, respect, and honour both your spiritual and biological parents the more, as this carries a reward ( Eph 6:1-3).
According to the word of God, through prophet Jeremiah:

“Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD ” ( Jer 17:5).

In the words of the Psalmist:
“Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God’ (Psalm 20:7).

Our father Abraham was “called the Friend of God” (James 2:23).
Would God be able to testify about you, as He did of David, saying, I have found a man after my heart:
“And when he had removed him, he raised up unto them David to be their king; to whom also he gave testimony, and said, I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfil all my will” (Acts 13:22).

David trusted God so much that he was ready to die rather than live and see Goliath mocked his God ( 1 Sam
17:45)

No wonder he admonished us : “It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in princes (Psalm 118:9).

In the Country where I come from ( Nigeria), it is not unusual to hear children of God speak as if they are unbelievers especially when challenged. You will often hear a brother or sister who is not having a visible paid job, saying: I don’t know anybody who could help me. My usual response is usually, that it is the person’s choice not to know Jesus Christ. Truly, no one can fully know Christ, and be jobless in this world.

 

I am more than convinced that there are many people in the Church today who do not regard the Holy Spirit as their best friend, a confidant, a senior partner, a spiritual person (third Person in the Trinity), to be loved, trusted, relate to, romanced and walked with daily.

When the Holy Spirit is your best friend, invariable, Jesus Christ is also your best friend and ally, since both of them are inseparable:

“Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty” (2 Cor 3:17). If the Holy Spirit is your best friend, Jesus is also your best friend and by extension, GOD, the Father is also your best friend since Jesus is in total ONENESS with the Father :

“I and my Father are one”
(John 10:30).
In Christ Jesus, God desires relationship and friendship from His children. The only condition to enter into this friendship is total obedience to the word of God. (John 15:14), as per our memory verse. Jesus promised all those who will maintain true friendship with Him, that they will be empowered to do ‘GREATER WORKS ‘ for Him (John 14:12). We are friends of Jesus out of His tremendous love for us(John 15:15), hence we owe Him complete obedience.
Brethren, the Holy Spirit is the spirit of Truth (John 16:13). He is the spirit of excellence, perfection, diligent obedience etc. There are some of my spiritual children who still struggle a lot with the concept of embracing the truth. They struggle with openness, honesty, transparency, sincerity, integrity etc. Why frustrate the grace of God? (Gal 2:22).
Please, try to make the Holy Spirit, Jesus Christ, the Father, your best friend in this world of darkness through the knowledge of the word of God.
Prayer: For everyone reading this message, receive the grace to make the Holy Spirit your best friend in Jesus’s mighty name. Amen.

The Ministry Of the Holy Spirit

 

Ministry of the Word (MOW):

MOW-TS

Improving our Spiritual Understanding.
Theme: The Ministry of the Holy Spirit.
Memory Verse:

” The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God” (Romans 8:16).

Beloved,
Without anointing, spiritual empowerment, the realm of the supernatural, and keying into the ministry of the Holy Spirit, Christianity becomes a mere empty religion.

Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ Himself needed empowerment of the Holy Spirit to run a flourishing ministry on earth:

“How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him”(Acts 10:38).

Jesus promised all true believers this same empowerment:

“But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth” (Acts 1:8).

This promise was followed by the assurance that believers so empowered will do greater works on earth:

“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father” (John 14:12).

Once a person has accepted Christ an his Lord and Saviour, he is empowered by the Holy Spirit to become a child of God ( John 1:11-12) and by this virtue, he is superior to the devil. This understanding is very important. The only reason we are able to challenge the devil is because we are children of God. We are joint heirs with Christ in God ((Romans 8:17).

The big question is: Why is it that many children of God are not able to hear from their Father? The answer lies in lack of total obedience to the words of God, which leads to unrighteousness and separation from God (Isa 59:1-2). If only we can live a life of truth and total obedience to the word of God, the Holy Spirit is more than ready to guide us according to the Scripture:

“Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come” (John 16:13). This scripture enables us to know that the Holy Spirit only speaks what he hears from the Word. In other words, the Holy Spirit is powerless without the Word. Of course, we know from the scripture that the Lord Himself is the embodiment of that Spirit:

“Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty” ( 2 Cor 3:17).

A life of daily signs and wonders are the heritage of all true believers, if only we can key into the ministry of the Holy Spirit:

“And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover ( Mark 16:17-18).
If you truly believe in our Lord Jesus Christ, you are for signs and wonders! All you are required to do is work and walk with the Holy Spirit:

“This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh” (Gal 5:16).

 

Please, try to key into the ministry of the Holy Spirit in your daily living. Enjoy the Holy Spirit. Have a Spirit-filled month in Jesus name. Amen.
Prayer: For everyone reading this message, receive the grace of personal revival, and to spiritually go higher in Jesus mighty name. Amen.

Ministry of the Word (MOW): True Spirituality (TS).

Improving our Spiritual Understanding.

Theme: The Ministry of the Word.

Memory Verse:

” But we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word” (Acts 6:4)

Beloved,

This week, our focus is on the ministry of the Word. Last week, our focus was on the ministry of the Holy Spirit. Of course, we know that the ministry of the Word and the ministry of the Holy Spirit are inseparable because “the Lord is that Spirit..” (2 Cor 3:17).

The great need for the multitude of believers to avoid distraction and to stay focus on the word of God was realised by the early Christians, hence the need to appoint seven deacons to take charge of administration (Acts 6:2-6). Consequent upon this decision and action, the Bible says: “And the word of God increased…”(Acts 6:7).

The importance of the word of God in the life of a believer can not be overemphasised. We learn from the very beginning of book of Genesis that after God created heaven and earth, the entire earth was in total darkness, void, without form, and good for nothing, until God spoke His first word: ” Let there be light” ( Gen 1:3).

“And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness” (Gen 1:4).

The first book of John tells us that there is no trace of darkness in God: “This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all” (1 John 1:5).

A major ignorance in the church of God today is inability to completely SEPARATE light from darkness. The word of God is light ( Psalm 119:130), but until the word of God is spoken by someone in good standing with God, nothing happens. There is so much power in the word of God. The Centurion understood this hence he requested Jesus not to come to his house, but to speak the word only, and his servant will be well ( Matt 8:8).

The Bible enables us to know that Jesus Christ is the Word, who was with God in the beginning and that the Word of God is God (John 1:1). All things were created by the word of God: “All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made” (John 1:3). Brother Paul also corroborated this:

“For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him” (Col 1:16).

Brethren, if we can avoid distraction and stay focused on the Word, the word of God will increase and true disciples of Jesus Christ will be multiplied. If you are in Good Standing with the Word, learn to speak the words of to yourself, to others, to your situations, and to other’s situations, and you would be amazed how powerful the word of God is ( Heb 4:12). If you learn to speak the word of God in obedience, nothing by any means can harm you.

God expects His children to speak His words to themselves: “Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord” ( Eph 5:19).

Yes, speak the word only in righteousness, and those oppressed will be set free, those who are sick will obtain healing, the blind will see, the deaf will hear, those who are stagnant will begin to make progress and the dead shall rise etc .

Please, try to key into the ministry of the Word in your daily living. Enjoy the word of God. Have a Spirit-filled month in Jesus name. Amen.

Prayer: For everyone reading this message, receive the grace to key into the Ministry of the Word, in Jesus mighty name. Amen.

Season of Revival

4 July 2014

Text: ” O Lord,I have heard thy speech and was afraid: O Lord revive thy work in the midst of the years, in the midst of the years make known; in wrath remember mercy” Habakkuk 3:2.

I sincerely thank everyone for finding time to read our messages as it is our belief that God will use His word to bless His people.

Friends, the season of revival is come and it’s NOW. Now is the set time.

From our text the cry for revival is made in the midst of the years, and here we are in the midst of the year.
We must rise for revival, none is exempted.

A keen believer will observe that in the book of Revelation, chapters 2&3, God took time to visit seven Churches with commendations and reprehension on their strength and weaknesses.

He called on the Churches, as a matter of urgency to consider their weaknesses and make amend; if you like, quickly repent.
It should be noted that ” …For the Lord seeth not as man seeth;….” 1Sam. 16:7
One of the Churches was rebuked for loss of fervency in love. ” because thou has left your first love” Rev.2:4.
Another was rebuked for lukewarmness ” thou art neither cold nor hot” Rev.3:15-17.
One was strongly commended and that an open door (of greater glory) was set before her; for though she had little strength, had kept the faith (Rev.3:7-8).
The scriptures continued that He is standing at every individual’s heart knocking for revival.(Rev.3:20). Please read through Rev.2&3.

Revival is the breaking forth of the life of God in an individual. Seeking the Lord till He comes and rain righteousness upon us. ” Then shall your light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the Lord shall be thy rear guard” Is.58:8
Revival is a new beginning of obedience to God. It is God’s move. It is reawakening and rekindling of dying spirit. The reawakening from despondency and faithlessness.
Revival simply means the dead aspect of your spiritual life or walk with God coming back to life.

The messages of Jesus Christ are for the Will and the Conscience, not just for the head. If you dispute the message with your head, you will blunt the appeal to your heart. Many know about Jesus without absolute trust in Him with their lives
Many know about God in the mind and intellect, without a relationship with Him in the heart. It is a known truth that the head relates with the senses while the heart( man’s spirit) yearns for God, His Life and Promises.
Many have lost personal passion, love and heart- felt devotion to the Almighty God. Having attitude and belief that don’t line up with God and Scripture; walking in the flesh.
Revival is a change of life . It is living the Bible and not just reading the Bible; neither is it the opening of the Bible but the opening of the heart in man. It’s increase in Christ – likeness, a transformed life and not a reformed life.

Revival must affect every area of our lives – spiritual, mental and physical. Our Lord Jesus came ministering to us in all these areas. ( Lk.4:18)
Spiritual revival must touch our characters, attitudes, habits, motives and words.
When a believer cannot be differentiated in words, deeds and character from an unbeliever, then he or she needs a revival. Decay in character results in carnality, such persons need a revival.

It is a season of the outpouring of the Spirit of Grace and Supplication upon our souls to enhance our prayer life, Bible studies, Evangelism, giving , relationship, love to God and one to one another.

When you are cold to prayers, studying of God’s Word; you need a revival. When you begin to prefer the permissive will of God to His absolute Will, you need a revival. When you begin to be impatient on issues including God’s promises; you need a revival.

In revival , fallow grounds are broken and the rain of righteousness would flood souls of men.( Hosea10:22). It is to return to the Lord and He will return to you. It is to repair the broken down altar and lay aside every weight and sin which doth easily beset us and focus on the heavens race that is set before us. It is to look unto Jesus.
Revival will cause men to live in time and for eternity under the eye of God, by His help and Grace.
Revival will cause men to seek repentance , salvation and redemption. They will seek Jesus Christ.
Of course there will be healing, miracles, anointing, prosperity, diverse blessings and no barrenness in the land.
You need revival to stay above board as a believer in these times.

Give yourself proper self assessment and use this season to seek God for your good. Seek His face casting all cares upon Him. Seek Him for your father’s house , family, career, business, the body of Christ, Nigeria and the world over.
Please don’t hide your identity as a believer in whatever circumstance.

I love you all. The Lord bless you and keep you. The Lord make His face shine upon you and be gracious unto you: The Lord lift up His Countenance upon you, and give you peace in Jesus great name. Amen.
