Unforgiveness is a terrible spiritual disease.


Improving Our Spiritual Understanding


Theme: Unforgiveness is a terrible spiritual disease.

Memory Verse:
“And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses”(Mark 11:25).

We bless God for the Revelational knowledge and wisdom of God in Christ Jesus. We thank Him for his guidance and PRESENCE with us this month of completion.

This week the Lord is reminding us of the destructive effect of unforgiveness and damage it can cause to our personality and health. Jesus Christ is speaking to every reader of this message through the memory verse.

Recently, I was asked to psychiatrically review a 72 year old married lady with complex physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual needs. I was amazed at the depth of unforgiving spirit she harbours. After spending quite some time to listen to her life story, with protracted damaging mental health symptoms and noting that she does not currently communicate with her three sons and also has got serious longstanding marital difficulties with her husband, the Lord revealed to me that unforgiveness was her major problem. I remember being a bit blunt with her and telling her to learn to forgive her husband and her three children. She retorted: I can not forgive my husbands and my sons for the “hurt and pains” they have caused me.  I knew it was not going to be an easy counselling session for me but it was a great opportunity to point out a few truths about life to her. Please note that this was not a Christian counselling and review. There are many disorders that medication alone can never cure. For me, I can only pray that the good Lord will have mercy on her.

Be open and honest about those who have hurt you. You, yourself, have you never hurt any one?  Appraise the pains and damage. Never you say I will never forgive him or her. Truly, if the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ should be unforgiving towards us, nobody would be alive today. It is because of His mercies that we are not consumed (Lamentation 3:22). Please, learn to let go insult, injury and damage experienced in the course of your interactions with others.

Please remember that in Christ Jesus God expect you to apply wisdom in everything. If you KNOW that a particular person does not contribute to your spiritual and mental growth, forgiving such fellow does not mean keeping close association with him or her. I have read in my Bible that:” evil communications corrupt good manners(1Cor 15:33). I have also read in my Bible that “He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed”(Prov 13:20). Jesus Himself was clear about those He regarded as friends, hence he stated: “Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.” (John 15:14).

Do not allow anyone to STEAL your joy. Be conscious of your New Creation in Christ Jesus. Headache, pains, sorrow, sickness, poverty, stagnation, frustration etc, will NEVER be your portion in Jesus Name. Amen:

“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” (2Cor 5:17).

Have a blessed and fruitful week in Jesus name. Amen.

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 to forgive one another 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. Ben Bassey, Iyobosa, Princess Esther & 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
