Theme: How Sincere are You?Memory Verse:“As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby” ( 1 Peter 2:2).BelovedOn behalf of the MOW family, I sincerely welcome you to the new month of November. A month of fruitfulness and abundance of grace. God bless you as you read and meditate on the sincere word of God. The Holy Spirit is asking us to start the new month with a focus on sincerity.Our memory verse says we should DESIRE the sincere milk of the word of God. Brethren, our God is the God of sincerity. Without sincerity our love for God and humanity amounts to nothing.What is sincerity? What does it mean to be sincere? To be sincere is to be free from pretence or deceit; to be truthful or genuine with your thoughts, feelings and actions; to be transparently honest with your thoughts and words. The free web encyclopaedia explains it thus:“Sincerity is the virtue of one who speaks and acts truly about his or her own feelings, thoughts, and desires”. To be sincere is to be pure, unadulterated, unmixed, and to maintain integrity. Sincerity is a spirit. Our Lord in the Book of Revelation says:“So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth” (Rev 3:16).In Christ, God has no real issues with those who declare themselves as satanist, and choose to honour and worship Satan. At least, they have taken a stand based on choice. The only message God send to them regularly is to repent and save their souls so that they shall live ( Ezekiel 18:27). But for someone to declare that he is for God but he goes about doing things contrary to the Holy Spirit, amount to frustrating the Grace of God (Gal 2:21).In the denominational churches today, you find different levels of insincerity, dishonesty, deception, cheating etc amongst many who claim to be “born again” children of God. This ought not to be so. Personally, I believe spiritual ignorance is the root cause of this problem. The Bible says my people are destroyed because of lack of knowledge ( Hosea 4:6). The Holy Spirit is a Spirit of sincerity, purity, holiness, truth, honesty, and transparency . Without these spiritual qualities, believers are spiritually DISCONNECTED from God who is a Spirit (John 4:24). Perhaps, what many believers need to know increasingly is that God relates to us, according to how we relate to Him. The Psalmist through the Holy Spirit, puts it succinctly:“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 froward” (Psalm 18:25-26).Beloved, be sincere and faithful with God and man; in return you will receive sincerity and faithfulness from God and man, based on the law of harvest. God is a Spirit with DIVINE NATURE (2 Peter 1:4). We can only find God and relate to Him with our hearts and spirits rather than with our feelings or minds.The more we possess the divine nature of God by desiring and developing increasing spiritual values, the more our life is fulfilled on earth. Every other spirit will disappoint you or fail you, but the Holy Spirit can never fail you. I love the way Apostle Peter puts it:“And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness..” 2 Peter 1:5-7).According Apostle Paul, we should do this: “That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ”(Phil 1:10).To grow spiritually increasingly requires daily meditation in the word of God.Prayer: For the reader of this message, receive the spirit of sincerity in Jesus mighty name. Amen.Yours in the Vineyard of Jesus Christ. Bro Ben Bassey, Iyobosa, & the MOW family.Spiritual Counselling Helpline:+447404624293.

org;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).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.
