Improving our Spiritual Understanding
True Spirituality (Series 80)
Theme: Examine Yourselves!
Memory Verse:Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves(2 Cor 13:5).
Beloved, the new thing the Lord is about to do in your life requires sincere, honest self-examination. Brother Paul says : Examine Yourselves to see if you are in the faith(2Cor 13:5).
God is a wise builder. We are co-labourers with Him. 1Cor 3:9 says:For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building. What materials are you allowing God to build you with? Remember that you are born again of incorruptible word of God: Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever(1 Pet 1:23).
In the beginning the devil purpose of visiting is to destroy. The devil is a con person and a master destroyer (John 10:10a). Often times, he uses very indirect methods like enticement, deceit, seduction and manipulation etc. Many in the body of Christ today are under the bondage of the devil due to ignorance. Many are in captivity of fear, laziness, coldness, worries, grumbling, unforgiveness etc. Every plant that my heavenly Father has not planted in your body, soul and spirit shall be rooted up in Jesus Mighty Name (Matt 15:13). Amen.
Do you have unresolved anger towards anyone? You might call it righteous anger! Do you have unresolved bitterness against anyone? What about envy? What about pride? What about indiscipline or lack of self-control? Yours may not be any of these. Oh, what about laziness? What about procrastination? What about miserliness? What of fear? What of little lies? What about lack of zeal for the word of God? What about oversleeping? What about eating too much. Songs of Solomon 2:15 says: Little foxes spoil the vineyards. Be open, honest, and sincere with yourself.
If only you allow Him, God is working through you in a way that will amaze even youself: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)
Be transparent in your thoughts, words and actions. The kingdom of God is all light with no trace of darkness. Henceforth, may no evil force operate in your body, soul and spirit in Jesus Name. Amen. Received more grace in Jesus Precious Name. Have a blessed week.
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). Please, key into the Word of God Ministry.
PRAYER: There is someone reading this message, receive the grace of sincerity to embark on daily self-examination in Jesus Mighty name. Amen!
In the Ministry Of the Word (MOW)-Acts 6:4, we primarily encourage, motivate 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 into our spirit 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(Prov 14:34) and that we are established only in righteousness, which also free us from oppression (Isaiah 54:14). We stress that righteousness consciousness remove fear and brings about boldness(Prov 28:1). 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 bondage, and that where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty (2Cor 3:17). Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life(John 14:6). Jesus is the Word of God who existed with God from the beginning(John 1:1).He created all things and without him was not anything made(John 1:3) The words of God are spirit and are Life(John 6:63). We allow the Scriptures to answer all questions. We create the awareness of the truth that Jesus has made all true believerskings and priests unto God and his Father(Rev 1:6). In addition, as a spiritual body, we also empower unbelievers, using the principles of our Lord Jesus Christ with the understanding that when they witness the power of the living God, they will exalt his holy name (Psalm 46:10). One major objective of MOW is to increasingly improve spiritual understanding of everyone. Spiritual ignorance is a major cause of human destruction, even within the body of Christ(Hosea 4:6). Indeed, many children of God have gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge (Isa 5:13). Please note that the MOW is an initiative and the spiritual arm of Abasi Health Foundation (AHF). AHF is a registered NGO in Nigeria , with the primary objective of empowering all groups of people to optimize their health. It is aimed at encouraging everyone to have increasing awareness of three broad levels of health: Physical, Mental and Spiritual. May God give you the grace of increasing understanding in Jesus Name. Amen. Websites: http//www.ministryoftheword.org; http//www.abasihealthfoundation.org
Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; :but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot (1 Pet 1: 18-19).
