Ministry of the Word (MOW):
Improving our Spiritual Understanding
Theme: The Reason for the Season.
“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly” (John 10:10).
Greetings to you in the name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. In Him we live, and move and have our being.
As we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ this year, let us not be distracted but rather, keep our focus on the reason and purpose why He came. Let us appreciate the love, joy, peace and goodness He brought to humanity, by living a life of total obedience to His words. Truly, He came to make us live life abundantly.
His coming to earth and His works were not ordinarily, as prophesied by the great prophet.
“ For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace” (Isaiah 9:6).
The same great prophet had also prophesied His miraculous birth:
“Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel” (Isa 7:14).
Before Jesus Christ came to earth, the entire earth was ruled and governed by legalistic sets of law and principles, humanly impossible to keep. Thank God Jesus came to take away our burden and to save mankind. He came full of grace and truth (John 1:14). His coming was not ordinarily. It was entirely the works of the Holy Ghost:
“And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God (Luke 1:35).
Brethren, Jesus Christ is the only true way to the Father. There is no other way. He says:
“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (John 14:6).
The apostle stated this clearly:
“Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved” (Acts 4:12).
Beloved, you were created to be a blessing. That three letter word, SIN has kept many away from realising their destinies and fulfilling their potentials. The only reason any person may not appreciate the redemption works of Jesus Christ is ignorance. May you enter 2015 free of ignorance in Jesus name. Let’s deal with sin in our lives. Let’s embrace Jesus from today. Let’s join Jesus in destroying the works of the devil. The scripture says:
“He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God” ( 1John 3:8-9).
Once more on behalf of myself and the entire MOW family, we wish every reader a Spirit-filled prosperous 2015.
To grow spiritually increasingly requires daily meditation in the word of God. Train yourself yourself to be godly.
Prayer: To every reader of this message, may the joy salvation in Christ Jesus in you be full in 2015 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 now and be my Lord and Saviour. I promise to surrender all to you and serve you diligently always from now on, in Jesus name I have prayed. Amen”. We would encourage you to join any word based bible fellowship group of your choice. Please, be prayerful in choosing the group to you.
Yours in the Vineyard of Jesus Christ. Bro Ben Bassey, Iyobosa, & the MOW family.

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. Amen. Websites: http//www.ministryoftheword.org; http//www.abasihealthfoundation.org
