“But there is a spirit in man: and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding” ( Job 32:8).
Compliments of the season to everyone, especially to the great family of our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
There is a spirit in man. Unfortunately, not everyone is aware of their spirit being. The natural man does not understand the things of the spirit. It is the spirit that guarantees life. The flesh profits nothing. Indeed, the flesh is contrary to the spirit. The inspiration of God, called spiritual empowerment or anointing, gives man understanding . 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 ritual and an empty religious movement.
Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ Himself needed empowerment of the Holy Spirit to run a flourishing ministry on earth. The word of God reminds us of:
“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 in the same book of Acts, when he declared:
“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. Jesus declared:
“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 is seated with Christ on the right hand side of the Father, above all principalities and powers. By this virtue, he is superior to the devil and is untouchable. 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).
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. Jesus Himself promised us:
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 and Saviour Jesus Christ, you are for signs and wonders. All you are required to do is work and walk with the Holy Spirit. Apostle Paul declared:
“This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh” (Gal 5:16).
The Lord Jesus is that Spirit:
“Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty” ( 2 Cor 3:17).
Without our spirit man coming alive, a Christian remains powerless:
“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).
Stay connected to JESUS, the Spirit of God, also called the Word. He is the SOURCE of life. He is the true light of the world. Be knowledgeable. Seek wisdom. Be enlightened.
Keep your thoughts & mind positive & healthy . Challenge negativity as much as possible.
Think no evil against anyone. Live in peace with one another as much as it depends on you.
Be merciful, compassionate and kind to one another.
Be sensitive to the voice of the Holy Spirit. The Spirit Speaks.
Dear Father, please give us the grace of personal revival, and to spiritually go higher in Jesus mighty name. Amen. Father, please continue to frustrate and expose every pretender and hypocrite in our churches and societies in Jesus name.
Thank you Jesus for filling me with your Holy Spirit. I receive increasing understanding in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
Blood of Jesus!
Yours in the Vineyard of Christ.
