Word for Today: Life is in the spirit.
Ministry of the Word (MOW):
True Spirituality (TS).
Improving our Spiritual Understanding.
“It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life ( John 6:63).
Greetings to everyone, especially to the family of our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
It is the spirit that guarantees life. The flesh profits nothing. Indeed, the flesh is contrary to the spirit. Spiritual empowerment is called anointing. Without anointing and understanding of the realm of the supernatural, as well as keying into the ministry of the Holy Spirit, Christianity becomes a mere empty religion.
Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ Himself needed empowerment of the Holy Spirit to run a flourishing ministry on earth:
“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).
Jesus promised all true believers this same empowerment:
“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).
This promise was followed by the assurance that believers so empowered will do greater works on earth:
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father” (John 14:12).
Once a person has accepted Christ an his Lord and Saviour, he is empowered by the Holy Spirit to become a son of God ( John 1:11-12) and by this virtue, he is superior to the devil. This understanding is very important. The only reason we are able to challenge the devil is because we are children of God. We are joint heirs with Christ in God ((Romans 8:17).
A life of daily signs and wonders are the heritage of all true believers, if only we can key into the ministry of the Holy Spirit:
And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover ( Mark 16:17-18).
If you truly believe in our Lord Jesus Christ, you are for signs and wonders! All you are required to do is work and walk with the Holy Spirit:
“This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh” (Gal 5:16).
Jesus, the Lord is that Spirit.
“Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty” ( 2 Cor 3:17).
Stay connected to JESUS, also called the Word. He is the bread of life. He is the true light of the world. Be knowledgeable. Seek wisdom. Be enlightened.
Keep your thoughts & mind positive & healthy . Avoid negativity as much as possible.
Think no evil against anyone. Live in peace with one another as much as it depends on you.
Be compassionate and kind to one another.
Be sensitive to the Holy Spirit. He speaks!
For everyone desiring spiritual growth, receive the grace of personal revival, and to spiritually go higher in Jesus mighty name. Amen. Father, please continue to frustrate and expose every pretender in our churches and societies in Jesus name.
Thank you Jesus for giving me your Holy Spirit.
Blood of Jesus!
Yours in the Vineyard of Christ.
