Standing Against Attacks By Rev Eastwood Anaba

Theme: The Relevant Church

Topic: Standing Against Attacks

Scripture Reading:
Ephesians 6:10-18

Main Text
Ephesians 6:11
Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

A solid church is informed and instructed in spiritual warfare. Churches die and believers are destroyed when they are ignorant about the devices of the enemy. We do not wrestle against flesh and blood but against principalities and powers. These principalities and powers are the gatekeepers of hell.

The apostle Paul calls on the Church to be strong in the Lord. He directs us to put on the whole armour of God and not part of it. Prayer is the means by which we put on the armour of God (Ephesians 6:11-17). A prayerless church or believer cannot stand. Acts of witchcraft and wickedness are unleashed against the Church. Hatred burns in the hearts of satanic agents against the Body of Christ. Lies are fabricated from the pit of hell to discredit men and women of God. Mischievous people fight against preachers with the aim of annihilating them but Jesus Christ assured His followers that the gates of hell would not prevail against them. No weapon formed against you shall prosper (Isaiah 54:17).

We must use our tongues to condemn the weapons satan unleashes against the Church. Jesus Christ has given us the weapon of the Word – the two-edged sword – to fight against satan’s attacks. We are instructed to condemn every tongue that rises up against us. Prayer is the means by which we contend with the agents of darkness. The weapons of our warfare are mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds (2 Corinthians 10:3-6).

Prayer:
1. Pray and condemn any tongue that has been lifted against you openly or in secret.
2. Pray and halt every orchestration of the wicked against you and the Church.

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

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…
