“O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together” ( Psalm 34:3).
“My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is fixed: I will sing and give praise “
( Psalm 57:7)
“I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth” ( Psalm 34:1)
Brethren, the more you KNOW the true God, the more you find yourself praising and blessing Him more and more like our father king David, the Psalmist.
Beloved, who is God to you? Our memory verse says God is a Spirit. But man is also a spirit. Apostle Paul informs us that man is a three-in-one being, with body, soul and spirit:
“And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ” (1 Thess 5:23). The truth is that man is a spirit with a soul and lives in a body.
Psalm 82:6 says:
“I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High”.
Jesus Himself made reference to this divine nature of man:
“Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?” ( John 10:34).
So in essence God is a Spirit. Man is a spirit. Angels are spirits. Satan and his demons are spirits. There are many gods because spirit beings operate as gods. Who then is the true God? The embodiment
of the true and living God is the Holy Spirit. This is the Spirit that was in Jesus Christ when he was on earth making Him the way, the truth and the life ( John 14:6). This is the Spirit in every true believer who accepts Jesus Christ as his/her Lord and Saviour.
Please note that this Spirit is spelt with capital S to differentiate it from all other spirits. This Spirit is perfectly loving, kind, gentle, humble, merciful, peaceful, faithful, truthful etc. This Spirit can never die.
This Spirit is Omnipotent( all powerful), Omnipresent (present everywhere at all times) and Omniscience(all knowing about past, present & future). Man’s spirit may lie to you, but this Spirit can never lie to you . Indeed God is not man that he should lie ( Numbers 23:19).
This Spirit is the same yesterday, today and for ever. He does not change. He call Himself different names to suit the occasions. When sent on errand, Moses asked for His name to give to Pharaoh, this Spirit introduced Himself thus:
“And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you” ( Exodus 3:14).
Prophet Isaiah introduced this Spirit thus:
“…and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace” ( Isaiah 9:6). All governments are upon His shoulder. This Spirit is very good at doing wonderful things.
This Spirit is perfectly Open, honest, reliable , transparent, gracious, just, caring, compassionate etc.
Jesus is the embodiment of this Spirit. The Bible tells us so: “Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty”.
(2Cor 3:17). He is the only one who can set you free indeed ( John 8:32, 36).
Henceforth, let no man puts you under bondage. Learn to RELATE to this Spirit daily.
Desire to have this Spirit more and more every day and your life shall never remain the same 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 , receive the grace to personally possess the Spirit of God daily, increasingly, 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. Bro Ben Bassey, Iyobosa, Princess Esther, & the MOW family.
Spiritual Health Counselling Helpline & emails:
Dr Ben Bassey is a practicing psychiatrist in the UK & a spiritual health counselor, who 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
