Ministry of the Word (MOW):
True Spirituality (TS).
Improving our Spiritual Understanding.
Theme: Who is Your Best Friend?
” Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you”.
The Lord is leading me to ask you some vital questions:
Who is your best friend in this world? Who is your mentor? Who do you trust most? Who do you often turn to for guidance? Who do you often speak to? Who do you rely on, all the time?
Brethren, if you LEARN to make the Holy Spirit your best friend, mentor, trust, and guidance, you can never go wrong in life. Please, children note that having the Holy Spirit as your mentor should enable you to obey, respect, and honour both your spiritual and biological parents the more, as this carries a reward ( Eph 6:1-3).
According to the word of God, through prophet Jeremiah:
“Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD ” ( Jer 17:5).
In the words of the Psalmist:
“Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God’ (Psalm 20:7).
Our father Abraham was “called the Friend of God” (James 2:23).
Would God be able to testify about you, as He did of David, saying, I have found a man after my heart:
“And when he had removed him, he raised up unto them David to be their king; to whom also he gave testimony, and said, I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfil all my will” (Acts 13:22).
David trusted God so much that he was ready to die rather than live and see Goliath mocked his God ( 1 Sam
No wonder he admonished us : “It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in princes (Psalm 118:9).
In the Country where I come from ( Nigeria), it is not unusual to hear children of God speak as if they are unbelievers especially when challenged. You will often hear a brother or sister who is not having a visible paid job, saying: I don’t know anybody who could help me. My usual response is usually, that it is the person’s choice not to know Jesus Christ. Truly, no one can fully know Christ, and be jobless in this world.
I am more than convinced that there are many people in the Church today who do not regard the Holy Spirit as their best friend, a confidant, a senior partner, a spiritual person (third Person in the Trinity), to be loved, trusted, relate to, romanced and walked with daily.
When the Holy Spirit is your best friend, invariable, Jesus Christ is also your best friend and ally, since both of them are inseparable:
“Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty” (2 Cor 3:17). If the Holy Spirit is your best friend, Jesus is also your best friend and by extension, GOD, the Father is also your best friend since Jesus is in total ONENESS with the Father :
“I and my Father are one”
In Christ Jesus, God desires relationship and friendship from His children. The only condition to enter into this friendship is total obedience to the word of God. (John 15:14), as per our memory verse. Jesus promised all those who will maintain true friendship with Him, that they will be empowered to do ‘GREATER WORKS ‘ for Him (John 14:12). We are friends of Jesus out of His tremendous love for us(John 15:15), hence we owe Him complete obedience.
Brethren, the Holy Spirit is the spirit of Truth (John 16:13). He is the spirit of excellence, perfection, diligent obedience etc. There are some of my spiritual children who still struggle a lot with the concept of embracing the truth. They struggle with openness, honesty, transparency, sincerity, integrity etc. Why frustrate the grace of God? (Gal 2:22).
Please, try to make the Holy Spirit, Jesus Christ, the Father, your best friend in this world of darkness through the knowledge of the word of God.
Prayer: For everyone reading this message, receive the grace to make the Holy Spirit your best friend in Jesus’s mighty name. Amen.
Yours in the Vineyard of Christ. Bro Ben Bassey, Iyobosa, & 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).
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
Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces? (Jer 23:29).
