Ministry of the Word (MOW):
True Spirituality (TS).
Improving our Spiritual Understanding
Theme: Welcome to 2015, the year of GRACE.
“Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful” (Rev 21:5).
With joy in our hearts, we welcome you to the year of our Lord, 2015, a year of special grace. A year of fruitfulness and reward for discipline, discipleship, dedication, commitment, hard work, faithfulness, uncompromising stand towards sin etc.
For keeping us alive to see the NEW YEAR and ensuring that we rejoice in the spirit, let’s praise Him. It’s because of the LORD’s mercies that we are consumed. His love, mercy and grace have kept us bouncing with joy despite the plans and activities of our enemies. Father, we bless your holy name. We adore you. We worship you . We magnify you. With our whole hearts, we say you alone are worthy to be exalted above every other thing in heaven, earth , and underneath the earth. Thank you for 2015. Thank you for loving us beyond any human imagination. Thank you for your compassion Daddy. Father, accept our thanks in Jesus name. Amen.
Beloved, God is about to do a new thing in the lives of those who diligently obey Him, spend time with Him and worship Him in spirit and in truth ( John 4:24), in the year 2015. We may not have full understanding of what God is about to do , but please do not be left out. His works through His true children will be so marvellous and amazing that many will find it difficult to believe:
“Behold ye among the heathen, and regard, and wonder marvellously: for I will work a work in your days, which ye will not believe, though it be told you” ( Hab 1:5).
The only thing that can stand between you and what God in Christ wants to do in your life this year is SIN ( Isaiah 59:1-2). Remember, we cannot continue in sin and expect grace to abound. God forbid (Romans 6:1-2). Arise and shine for your light has come (Isaiah 60:1).
In Christ, God does not compromise on righteousness, purity and holiness. The choice is ours. How prepared are you for the NEW THING? He has promised to make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert(Isaiah 43:19).
In Christ Jesus, in the life of a man, God allows certain tribulations and challenges to happen to him ( as in the case of Job), so that “the works of God should be made manifest in him” ( John 9:3). I do not know what your present situation may be, but I know one thing, the great burden bearer is more than enough for you. Only believe, accept His invitation and you will see God’s glory in your life, according to the word of the Lord. Jesus asked Martha: “Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?” (John 11:40). Was the glory of God not manifested in Lazarus when he came back to life according to His word?.
Believe in God in Christ, and allow Him to use you mightily:
“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them” (Eph 2:10).
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 you experience the New Thing God is about to do in Christ Jesus 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 .
Yours in the Vineyard of Jesus Christ. Bro Ben Bassey, Iyobosa, & the MOW family.
Spiritual Health Counselling Helpline & emails:
Dr Ben Bassey is a psychiatrist & a spiritual health counsellor currently resident in the UK; he ministers to people regularly through the MOW and AHF.
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
