Improving Our Spiritual Understanding
Theme: March on from Glory to Glory!
Memory Verse: But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord (2Cor 3:18).
The relationship between God the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ) and the Holy Spirit is extremely unique; it is based on unity, agreement, oneness and can never be fully comprehended by any human mind. I have listened to discussions where some people argue that Jesus is not God! Yet, the Scripture clearly tells us that: in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily(Col 2:9). Indeed, Brother Paul further tells us that: it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell (Col 1:19). Yet, out of humility, Jesus himself never consider himself equal to his Father (Phil 2:5-7), despite his being fully aware of his oneness with his Father. On one occasion he told one of his disciples (Philip): he that hath seen me hath seen the Father(John 14:9). However, he was quick to acknowledge his Father’s authority by explaining further: If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I (John 14:28).
Brethren, I have used the Scriptures to point out this supernatural relationship between Jesus and his Father, in order to clear every doubt. The true is that any one who has seen Jesus has seen God.
Our memory verse says as we obediently focus on Jesus, we are transformed from glory to glory into his image. Meaning, we also become the brightness of God’s glory.
Who is Jesus: Jesus is the embodiment of fullness of love, joy, peace, faith, goodness etc. Jesus is also the embodiment of fullness of truth, righteousness, holiness, honesty & transparency, compassion, the Way to true prosperity etc. Grace and truth came through Jesus (John 1:17), because he is full of grace and truth (verse 14). He is the Way, Truth and the Life (John 14:6).
PRAYER: There is someone reading this message , may you receive the grace of glorious transformation as you obediently focus on the words of God 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). Righteousness exalts(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 bondage, and that where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty (2Cor 3:17). 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 create the awareness that Jesus has made all true believers kings 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 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). 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.
