SPIRITUAL GROWTH

Spiritual growth is a crucial part of life which no man can afford to joke with this is because man himself is a tripartite being. He is a Spirit with a soul and lives in a body therefore the need to grow spiritually is important in all forms of human endeavor. But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. 1 Corinthians 2:14-15 Just like when a child is born, he needs to be nurtured and well taken care of to enhance his growth physically in the same manner a Spirit man needs to be fed and needs to be well nurtured in order to bring him into full manifestation of his potentials or abilities. As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: 1 Peter 2:2 Though growth is essential but we must understand that growth needs to happen in a proper way. How do we achieve this? For instance, when a child does not feed on…

GOD’S CREATION AND HIS WISDOM

The main alternative to the concept of God creating everything is the theory of evolution. It suggests that everything we see is the product of blind chance and random changes that add up to order out of chaos and complexity out of simplicity. It takes a great leap of faith to accept evolution as fact. It is totally wrong to suggest that God used evolution to produce the world as we know it because he plainly tells us he created the world as, including humans, in a logical and orderly manner. The bible mentions creation often. We learn from John 1, Colossians 1, Hebrews 1, and many other passages that Jesus is the creator. Blind chance could not possibly have resulted in the wisdom we see all around us in the created world. Psalm 104 in its entirety gives more examples of the creators’ wisdom. We also know facts about the natural world that show God’s wisdom in creation; like symbiotic relationships, where one creature is dependent on another for existence. They could not logically have evolved independently and then somehow become dependent.   God’s wisdom as seen in His creation (Psalm 104:24-30) The earth is full of God’s riches,…

A SPIRIT FILLED MAN

The failure of the natural man is his inability to discern clearly all that God has for him according to the scriptures. He can only see from situations. He walks in the shallowness of his own mind and cannot figure things out. God created the whole world and gave us our uniqueness. We learn to discover all that God has for us immediately we are yielded to Him. But for a spirit filled man who is also known as the Spiritual Man, He has been given a clear insight into God’s word and he walks in the truth he has known. The path of the spiritual man might be filled so much challenges but he learns through God’s word that he has been redeemed and given total victory over all. The enemy of the spirit filled man cannot overwhelm him, actually not because the Spirit filled man is just spiritual but because he lives in him who loves him and gave Himself for him. The heart of the spirit filled man is focused on God since he represents who he aims to become. He fellowships with Him always for day-to-day instructions and help. When the spirit filled man speaks, he…

God’s System of Economy (SELF SUFFICIENCY)

2 Corinthians 9:8 KJV And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work: The word sufficient means competent; being qualified enough, to be able.

THE STIRRING OF DEEP WATERS

“But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God.”  1 Corinthians 2:10 (NKJV) The life of any man does not consist of things he has in possession. Any life that solely depends on God is a complete life. No one receive more without first making full use of whatever he has been given. In the scripture, the man at the pool of Batheseda whose condition remain the same as a result of his inability to enter the pool when it is stirred by an angel. Now there is in Jerusalem near the Sheep Gate a pool, which in Aramaic is called Bethesda and which is surrounded by five covered colonnades.  Here a great number of disabled people used to lie — the blind, the lame, the paralyzed.

THE DOER OF THE WORD – Reasoning Factor

Whenever God speaks to us and we refuse to do it, you will notice that reasoning with your head has gotten in the way and you have been deceived in trusting in something else other than the truth (God’s word). But be doers of the word [obey the message], and merely listeners to it, betraying yourselves [into deception by reasoning contrary to the Truth]. James 1:22 (AMP) The major problem is trying to understand what God has said using the human mind or mentally. We cannot spend excessive time trying to understand everything the word says, if we bear witness in the spirit, we can move ahead and do it. Infact, God wants you to obey his word whether or not you feel like it, he wants you to understand his plan for you whether it goes with our taste. …… When God speaks, we are to take deliberate action not explain it away… Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. Proverbs 3:5 (AMP) This means never rely on reasoning with your mind. Reasoning opens the door for deception and brings…

GOOD GROUND; DIVINE LIFE

Luke 8:15 “But that on the ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience”. The word of God defines us and sets our future. Therefore it is important that we give heed to the word to live out our full potentials on earth. The parable of the sower as given by the account in the Book of Luke, was shared with so much clarity and details that gives a better understanding of it. Hence it is worth studying alongside the other accounts of the same parable in the scriptures. The Parable of the sower reveals of four different hearers of the word. It uses similes to describe them. Wayside ground, rocky ground, thorny ground and good ground. “Wayside” hearer didn’t understand the word and so lost it, ‘rocky ground’ hearer heard the word but did not have depth and so the word couldn’t take root downward to bear fruits upward. ‘Thorny ground’ hearer received the word but the cares of this world competed with the word as so it couldn’t bear fruit. However, the ‘good ground’ hearer received the word with honesty (sincerity) and kept it…

A DISCERNING HEART

DISCERNING HEART; NOT EASILY DECEIVED Discernment is the ability to get quick perceptions or judgement on an important matter. For judgment, discernment is more than an instinct or a psychological attribute. It’s the divine ability given by God to understand his leadings per time. It is seeing and knowing beyond the physical. Within judgment, discernment involves going past the mere perception of something and making nuanced judgments about its properties or qualities. Discernment is a quality of attentiveness to God’s voice or any other he speaks such that, over time, this develops into the ability to sense God’s heart and purpose in any given moment of our live. We become familiar with the tone, quality, and content of God’s voice per time.       With the world’s quest for power, money and fame. so many have lost their hard-earned money or precious properties because they could not discern and make right decisions as at when due. The discerning heart functions as a result of the discerning spirit and the Spirit comes to play when one’s heart is yielded to God. For God is the giver of all things and all things are received in Christ Jesus. When a man is covetous and…

PROPHECY by Kenneth E. Hagin

“THE GLORY OF GOD”   And the Word of the Lord came unto me saying; “Prophesy thou unto this people.” What about the future’? Is the future dark as men would have you to believe’? Or is the future bright? Yea, in the world. In the kingdom of darkness the future is dark. But in the Kingdom of God all is brightness and all is light. And in these last days there shall be an invasion of the light into the kingdom of darkness. And yea, the light shall dispel the darkness.” And men’s hearts shall be turned toward the Lord. Yea, they shall rise up in that great day and call thee blessed. Because the light shined through thee even unto them. And they walked in the light and found peace. Yea, they walked in the light and found joy. Yea, they walked in the light and found reality. So let the light of the truth of the Word of God shine through your life. Let that light of the truth of the Word of God be upon thy lips to speak forth the truth. And the darkness shall be dispelled. And shall disintegrate. Yea, thou shalt walk in…
