Theme: True PEACE is only from the Prince of Peace!
Memory Verse:Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. (John 14:27).
Be not deceived, true ENDURING peace can only be obtained from our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. The peace that JESUS gives to us is totally different from the peace of this world ( John 14:27). This verse tells us one thing clearly: this world can offer us some semblance of peace.
Many erroneously believe that they can have true peace, joy or security from money, family, qualifications, titles, high positions etc. It is good to have them if we can. Believe me, the peace and sense of security that comes with having these things are ephemeral. It fades away with time, especially if the things are no more. But true peace is a blessing that only the Lord can give. It is unwavering and eternal with little or no relationship to events around us. There is no sorrow added to it. The Word says: The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich & he added no sorrow with it (Psalm 10:22).
There are 24 hours in a day; how much time do you spend with the Word daily? Remember, He is your First Love (Rev 2:4). Spend time with Him. This season, may you receive TRUE PEACE from the Prince of Peace (Isa 9:6) in Jesus name. Amen.
His thoughts towards you are that of peace:
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end(Jer 29:11).
You will notice that this divine peace from the Word of God is a component of the fruit of the Spirit( Gal 5:22). Apostle Paul tells us that without this divine peace, no one will see the Lord: Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord ( Heb 12:14). The depth of your peace, is the extent you trust in him. Put your total trust in Him. Let Him be your source of every good thing. The Psalmist, the great warrior says: Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the Lord our God (Psalm 20:7). No wonder he was able to say: In God we boast all the day long, and praise thy name for ever. Selah (Psalm 44:8).
This is what the Scripture says of Jesus in prophesy:
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 (Isa 9:6).
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 true PEACE from the Prince of PEACE in Jesus Mighty 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 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 & 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 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 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
