Improving Our Spiritual Understanding
Theme: Lack of Faith in the word of God is Disobedience.
Memory Verse:Blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed (John 20:29b).
BelovedWe bless the name of the Lord for a new week. A new week of faith. A new week of hope. A new week of peace. A new week of joy in the Holy Ghost (Romans 14:17).Beloved, God is not a man, that he will lie( Num 23:19). Whatsoever God says in his words about you will certainly come to pass if you faint not. All things are possible to him who believe ( Mark 9:23). In life, it is to you according to your faith (Matt 9:29).I have come to understand that there are many people in the Church today who lack faith in the word of God, despite regularly going to church and calling the name Jesus. A sister who is linked to MOW really really surprised me recently in the course of our discussion on the telephone. She told me: “I never thought you will ever have your own child”. She even repeated the statement the second time. Truly, I was very surprised. I thought this was faithlessness of the highest order because this is contrary to what the word of God says about me:“Thou shalt be blessed above all people: there shall not be male or female barren among you, or among your cattle” (Deu 7:14). Perhaps the sister is not familiar with this verse. Truly, faithlessness is disobedience to God’s words, and it is a SIN.I sincerely hope the sister will read this message and benefit from it.
What do we read in the Bible?“And Abraham was an hundred years old, when his son Isaac was born unto him” ( Genesis 21:5). No wonder the Bible calls Abraham a friend of God. There is no age limit in the spirit realm. Once you are a friend of God he renew your age like the eagles(Psalm 103:5).Beloved, whatsoever the word of God says about you will certain come to pass if you trust God and hold on to his word. The Word says none shall be barren in the land. Why then should someone who claim to be a child of God think otherwise?Brethren, have faith in God ( Mark 11:22). Sufficiently expose your heart and mind to the word of God and help your faith to grow. No exposure to the word of God, no faith: “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God” (Romans 10:17).Do not just read the word of lightly. Learn to hide the word of God in your heart( Psalm 119:11). Learn to tremble at the word of God ( Isaiah 66:2). Believe in what the word of God says about you . Be patient, diligent and hard working as you trust God for his promises in your life to come to past.
The word of God is too powerful for us to toy and play with (Hebrews 4:12).By the special grace of God, who takes interest in the destinies of men, before I leave this world, I will be able to say, like Apostle Paul said:“I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith .Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing”(2Tim 4:7-8).It shall be well with you this 2015 in Jesus precious name. Amen.To grow spiritually increasingly requires daily meditation in the word of God, with total fear of God. Train yourself yourself to be godly…(Tim 4:7-8, NIV)Prayer: There is someone reading this message , may you receive the grace to develop unquenchable faith in the word of God in Jesus mighty name. Amen.A Call To Salvation!If you have read this message by chance, but you are undecided or have no clarity whether you want to give your life to Christ. I would encourage you to give it a trial. Please, pray this prayer with us:“Lord Jesus, I believe you are the Son of God. Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins. I confess all my sins to you right now. Please forgive my sins and give me the gift and joy of eternal life. I ask you to come into my heart and life right now and be my Lord and Saviour. Lord, please write my name in the book of Life. I promise to sincerely surrender ALL to you and serve you diligently always from now on, in Jesus name I have prayed. Amen”. Congratulations! You are now spiritually regenerated and “born again” in Christ Jesus. We would encourage you to join any Word based Church of your choice. Please, be prayerful in choosing one. We would recommend the nearest branch of Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG).Yours in the Vineyard of Jesus Christ.

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 stress that the word of God is the only truth that can sanctify man (John 17:17). 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). That the basis for our highest anointing is loving righteousness and hating iniquity (Hebrews 1:9). 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. Amen.
