Improving our Spiritual Understanding.
“And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit…” ( Ephesians 5:18-19).
Good morning to the great family of God in Christ Jesus all over the world. Wishing you all Spirit- filled new day the LORD has made.
Brethren, please pray to be filled with the Holy Spirit daily. Without anointing, spiritual empowerment, living in the realm of the supernatural, and 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 as 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 sons of God. We are joint heirs with Christ in God ((Romans 8:17).
The question is: Why is it that many children of God are not able to hear from their Father? The answer lies in lack of total obedience to the words of God, which leads to unrighteousness and separation from God (Isa 59:1-2). If only we can live a life of truth and total obedience to the word of God, the Holy Spirit is more than ready to guide us according to the Scripture:
“Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come” (John 16:13). This scripture enables us to know that the Holy Spirit only speaks what he hears from the Word. In other words, the Holy Spirit is powerless without the Word. Of course, we know from the scripture that the Lord Himself is the embodiment of that Spirit:
“Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty” ( 2 Cor 3:17).
The Word and the Holy Spirit are inseparable. 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. Allow the Holy Spirit to reveal you as a son of God.
“This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh” (Gal 5:16).
” The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God” (Romans 8:16).
