WHO IS JESUS TO You?-by Rev A AKPAN.

“But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?”. (Matt. 16:15).
Jesus once confronted his disciples with a very crucial question meant to test their understanding of who he really was. That was necessary because many people may just be following him without a proper knowledge of who he really is. People have different knowledge of him. He means different thing to different people. But there’s a central truth about his person that he expects every of his followers to know.
The Bible says “he asked his disciples, who do people say the Son of man is?.” They all gave different answers, some say he is John the Baptist, others Elijah, and still others said he was Jeremiah, or one of the prophets (Matt. 16:13-14).
What a confusion! Isn’t it funny or rather pitiable that people who were so close to him, who had followed him for years were confused about his true identity? One is not surprised then, that even today, not many who claim to know Jesus actually know him in the true sense of it. It’s surprising that there are many who carry big Bibles, attend church regularly, participate religiously in Christian activities, but don’t have revelational knowledge of Jesus. (My eyes have seen a lot!) No wonder they can be tossed to and fro by every wind of doctrine. “Until we all reach unity of faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. Then we will no longer be infants tossed back and forth by the waves blown here and there by every wind of teaching and the cunning and craftiness of men in their deceitful scheming” (Eph. 4:13-14).
There’s a central truth about the identity of Jesus that every one claiming to be his disciple should know that will establish him or her in faith, that will get them rooted in Him such that come what may, they won’t be moved. Job knew that truth, hence he could say in the midst of excruciating pain, “Though he slay me, yet will I hope in him” (Job 13:15). Apostle Paul knew that truth also, and was able to say:

“That is why I am suffering as I am. Yet I am not ashamed, because I know whom I have believed, and am convinced that he is able to guard what I have entrusted to him for that day” (2Tim. 1:12). Peter, knew it too, and said “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. (John 6:68).
It’s consolatory however, to know that it wasn’t all the disciples that were confused about the identity of their master, Jesus. One of them, Peter said to Him “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God” (Matt. 16:15) Jesus replied in verse 17, “…for this was not revealed to you by man, but by my Father in heaven”.
Beloved, we need to have a revelational knowledge of who Jesus is. That’s what establishes us in Him. That’s what will make us go all the way with him in spite of anything. Let’s seek to know him experientially today. God bless you.

The Word (7)-only the Word of God can give you true PEACE.

The Word (7)-only the Word of God can give you true PEACE.
“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid” ( John 14:27).
Beloved 

I believe that you do not need any revelation to know that 

the peace of this world is ephemeral. True peace is obtained only from the Word of God. Please, be careful, because many people will tell you “Peace, peace; when there is no peace” (Jeremiah 6:14).

Henceforth, learn to embrace the word of God above every other thing so as to enjoy true peace.

Grace & peace be multiplied to you in Jesus mighty name. Amen (2Peter 1:2).

The Word (6)-the word of God is GRACIOUS. 
“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” (2Corinthians 9:8)
Beloved 

You may not know this, the word of God is very gracious. The Word of God can transform and use the weakest and foolish thing of this world so as to confound the wise( 1Corinthians 1:27).
Henceforth, I encourage everyone to key into the GRACE in the word of God. Meditate on the word of God day and night (Joshua 1:8).
Grace & peace be multiplied to you in Jesus mighty name. Amen.

The Word (5)-the word of God produces JOY.

Word for Today
The Word (5)-the word of God produces JOY.
“Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart: for I am called by thy name, O LORD God of hosts” ( Jeremiah 15:16).
Beloved 

JOY is produced when you sincerely and sufficiently ‘eat’ and ‘drink’ the word of God. Many people mistake happiness for joy. Happiness is dependent on events around you, but Joy comes from your inside. The kingdom of God is not meat and drink but righteousness….and joy in the Holy Ghost (Romans 14:17).
Henceforth, I encourage everyone to spend time and meditate on the word of God day and night (Joshua 1:8).
Grace & peace be multiplied to you in Jesus mighty name. Amen.

Learn to be still, if you desire to see God at work.

Ministry of the Word (MOW)
 

MOW-True Spirituality   
Improving our Spiritual Understanding

  

Theme: Learn to be still, if you desire to see God at work.
 Memory verse:
” Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth” (Psalm 46:10)

 
 Beloved
How often do you LEARN to be STILL before the LORD? No doubt, God loves our loud praise and noise. Psalm 100:1 says: “Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands”.
However, if you want to see God in ACTION, you have to learn to be STILL, SILENT, and QUIET, before the Lord from time to time. God has already started to do something through us that will MARVEL many people. I am not just saying this out of sentiments or emotions, but rather, I stand on the authority of the word of God that declares: “Behold ye among the heathen, and regard, and wonder marvelously: for I will work a work in your days, which ye will not believe, though it be told you”” (Hab 1:5). If you are truly born again, and filled with the Holy Spirit, then spiritually, you have been recreated by God in Christ Jesus, therefore you are for Signs and Wonders (Isaiah 8:18).
 There is a new evidence based psychological therapy in Mental Health Science, called Mindfulness Therapy, use to treat common mental health problems such as anxiety, depression and stress related problems. Mindfulness Therapy, is a practical therapy, now gaining ground, with emphasis on patient being guided to focus their minds on HERE and NOW, aimed at developing increasing self control of the mind. Mindfulness therapy is now being combined with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy(CBT), in what is called, Mindfulness Based Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (MBCBT). It is aimed at helping the patient to ‘flush out’ unhealthy thoughts while focus ing on healthy thoughts. The word of God enables us to know that what we focus our mind on is vital to our health and overall wellbeing, hence Brother Paul admonishes us: “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things” (Phil 4:8). We thank God that science is now fully in agreement with the word of God.

 

  In conclusion, to see God in action in your life, you have to learn to focus on Him (His words), in silence and quietness. Learn to be still before the Lord. If I may ask you, what are your predominant thoughts daily? Never forget, as a man “thinketh in his heart so is he “(Prov 23:7). Many in the body of Christ, daily get overwhelmed by the challenges and issues of life, no wonder it may be difficult for them to enjoy the PRESENCE and LEADING of the Lord, which is usually with a still small voice: “And after the earthquake a fire; but the LORD was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice” (1Kings 19:11-12). Many in the body of Christ have turned prayers to monologue. They are the only one talking to God, and very rarely wait in silence to hear from God. Whereas God is saying: “Be still and know that I am God”. 

  True spiritual training will ultimately enable us to develop the Mind of Christ (1Cor 2:16). A mind that knows what to do in every situation and circumstance. A mind full of grace, mercy, truth, purity, joy, glory and love. An extremely humble mind. A mind that is peaceful. A mind that is respectful of others. A mind that esteems others above himself. A mind that avoid strife at all cost. A mind that is other-centred. A mind that honours others above ourselves. A mind that is focused on ideas rather than merely discussing events and people. A mind filled with divine wisdom. A mind of great understanding!

 

 Have a Spirit-filled week and for the rest of the year.

 

 To grow spiritually requires daily meditation with the word of God (Joshua 1:8) and seeking first the kingdom of God and its righteousness (Matthew 6:33). However, the first thing you must desire greatly is total spiritual freedom through the truth in the word of God ( John 8:32, 36).
Prayer: There is someone reading this message, receive the grace to be still before the LORD in Jesus mighty name. Amen

Welcome to another great week with the God that fetches water with the basket to disgrace the bucket!
As the year 2016 progresses, You Shall Be Remembered Again!
Just as God remembered Noah, He shall remember you (Gen 8:1).
Just as God remembered Hannah, He shall remember you (1Sam 1:19).
Just as Jehovah remembered Israel after 430 years, He shall remember you! Samson prayed (Judges 16:28): “O Lord GOD, remember me, I prayed thee, and strengthen me, I pray thee, only this once, O God, that I may at once avenged of the Philistines for my two eyes.
“It was a prayer of remembrance that released the REVENGE ANOINTING on Samson! And as you wait upon the LORD in this weekend of remembrance, I know that vengeance shall show up for you against every satanic Philistine confronting your life IJN. Amen.
PRAYER: Meditate on Isaiah 35:4 and pray: Thou God, that took Samson from shame even at the last minute, remember me and deliver me from shame IJN.
Shalom and have a pleasant Sunday.

The Word (4)-only the word of God can heal your marrow, soul & spirit.
“For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart” (Hebrews 4:12)

Beloved 

Medication may help to treat your physical & mental health issues, but cannot penetrate your soul & spirit. Only the word of God can penetrate deep into your marrow, soul and spirit and bring healing and total restoration to you. 
I encourage everyone to spend time and meditate on the word of God ( Joshua 1:8).
Grace & peace be multiplied to you in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
