Improving our Spiritual Understanding
True Spirituality (Series 59)
Theme: Welcome to the ERA of Signs& Wonders!
Memory Verse: For I will work a work in your days, which ye will not believe, though it be told you (Hab 1:5b).
You are welcome to the ERA of Signs & Wonders!
The Word says: Behold, I and the children whom the LORD hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the LORD of hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion (Isa 8:18). Our Father is ever at work (John 5:17). Believe me, some of the works God is about to do in Christ Jesus will be too amazing that many will find it hard to believe, according to our memory verse. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this (Isa 9:7b)
In Christ Jesus, we have been recreated to show forth the glory of God (Isa 43:7), in our thoughts, words and works.
To be a partaker of these signs and wonders, we have to embrace purity, holiness and keep our focus on Jesus, the Word of God: Looking unto Jesus(Heb 12:2). While on earth, on account of his total cleaving to his Father, Jesus was an embodiment of signs and wonders. He promised all those who will follow him and put their trust in him of greater works (John 14:12). Before departing this world, Jesus was able to look up to his Father and said: I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do (John 17:4).
We have received empowerment from the Holy Spirit to raise the dead, heal the sick, set the captives free and turn many into righteousness. The Word says:
But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth (Acts 1:8).
If you have not been baptized in the Holy Spirit, called anointing, please ask for it. Every believer requires anointing. Jesus himself was anointed:
How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him(Acts 10:38).
Christianity without the empowerment of the Holy Spirit, will be extremely difficult. It is wisdom to lead others to righteousness. The power of the Holy Spirit makes you a star!
And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever (Dan 12:3).
You have been recreated for signs and wonders in Christ Jesus. However, you are to draw near to God first, and God will respond by drawing near to you (Jam 4:8).
Have a Spirit-filled week and have great expectations, as you keep your focus on Jesus.
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).
PRAYER: There is someone reading this message , may you receive the grace to be for signs and wonders 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.org; http//www.abasihealthfoundation.org
Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee (Isa 60:1).
