Carriers of the Gospel by Rev Eastwood Anaba

THE WORD SIROCCO

Theme: The Relevant Church

Topic: Carriers of the Gospel

Scripture Reading:
Acts 8:5-13

Main Text
Acts 8:6‭, ‬8
6 And the people with one accord gave heed unto those things which Philip spake, hearing and seeing the miracles which he did.
8 And there was great joy in that city.

Many parts of the world are under the control of satanic agents and forces of darkness. Military personnel and scientific means cannot dislodge these forces. We have the power to disperse fear and release joy into the atmosphere. Many communities resist the Gospel and preachers because they don’t know the blessings and peace the Gospel brings. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is glad tidings. It is not bad news. The carriers of the Gospel have beautiful feet and not destructive feet (Romans 10:15-18).

Phillip the Evangelist carried the blessings of the Gospel to Samaria. He broke the cloud of darkness over the land of Samaria and freed the people from the fear Simon the Sorcerer had put in them. The people received the Gospel and its attendant breakthrough of freedom
and joy. The apostle Paul said the Church is blessed with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places. We were chosen before the foundation of the world to bless the world and saturate it with holiness and love (Ephesians 1:3-4).

Preachers of the Gospel go everywhere with glad tidings because they know the power of the Gospel. They are aware that they are the carriers of blessings. Grace and peace are multiplied to the Body of Christ to make it the storehouse of God’s power and blessings. God has called us to glory and virtue so the world can receive the impartation of light and glory (2 Peter 1:2-4).

Prayer:
1. Pray that God will make you a dedicated carrier of the Gospel.
2. Pray and ask God to make you a conduit of peace and joy to the world.

Theme: Purpose

Topic: Anointed for a Purpose

Scripture Reading:
Acts 13:19-22; Genesis 1:26-28

Main Text:
Acts 13:22
22 And when he had removed him, he raised up unto them David to be their king; to whom also he gave testimony, and said, I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfil all my will.From yesterday's devotional, we know that Without  purpose, life  is meaningless  and  unfulfilling. It is important for you to discover the purpose for which you were created,  blessed  and  anointed, and that God definitely created you for a purpose. God  anoints  you for a purpose.  Purpose  is  the  reason for the anointing.  Without purpose the anointing is either  wasted or abused. It is needful to also note that God  anoints people for a  purpose.You are  anointed to serve God  and touch people’s lives.  A powerful anointing  produces supernatural  results in others. God  anointed King David,  a  man after His…

Scripture Reading:Genesis 1:26-28;  
Main Text:Genesis 1:28And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth,  and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of  the sea, and over the fowl  of the air, and over every living thing that moveth  upon the earth.The Oxford dictionary  defines “purpose” as the reason for which something is done or created or for which something exists. Without purpose, life  is meaningless and unfulfilling. It is important for you to discover the purpose for which you were created,  blessed and anointed.  Purpose is not the prerogative of  a privileged few in the world – everybody should know his or her purpose in life.God created you for a purpose. He created  Adam and Eve and gave them the divine mandate to rule the universe and make the earth productive (Genesis 1:28). The  earth has great potential but it takes human beings to …

The Seven Spirits of God By Rev Eastwood Anaba

THE WORD SIROCCO

Theme: Purpose
Topic: The Seven Spirits of God
Scripture Reading:
Isaiah 11:1-2; Luke 4:1-19
Main Text:
Revelation 4:5
5 And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.
In  Isaiah  11:1-2, the  prophet Isaiah describes the seven-fold nature of the Spirit of the LORD who would rest on the Messiah. The Holy Ghost rests upon you with His perfect nature to subdue your human nature. His seven-fold nature overwrites your human inadequacies. His nature is superior to your human nature. He is what and who you are not. He does what you cannot do and gives what you cannot give.
In the book of  Revelation, John referred to the seven Spirits of God (Revelation 4:5). There is only one Holy Ghost so the term seven Spirits of God refers to the seven-fold character of the Holy Ghost. There is one Spirit with a seven-fold characterisation. Isaiah 11…
