SACRIFICE BY BISHOP DAG HEWARD-MILLS

SACRIFICE


13th March 2019


READ: Genesis 2:1-18

“Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.” - 1 John 5:21


God  wanted to  see  whether Abraham was ready to give up his son Isaac for Him. You can only give up your “Isaac” if you are fully surrendered to God.


When you begin to walk with God, He will ask you about all the “Isaacs” in your life. He may start with music or ask you to give up some friends. Anything that be-comes too precious to you will at-tract the attention of the Lord and He may ask for it. God wants to be the only God in your life.


Years ago, the Lord gave me a vision. I was walking on a long path with heaps of some substance. As I got closer to one of the heaps I discovered that it was a heap of gold. Immediately, God said, “Don’t stop! Keep on walking!” Then He told me, “This is the road of ministry for you. As you walk on it, you will meet many of such heaps of gold. Don’t stop at the gold. The gold is not important.” He continued, “Why should you stop at one of them and settle there?”


God gave me that vision to help me see Him as being more important than anything else. I realized that just following the Lord would lead to a supply of all my needs. Abraham was about to become the father of millions of children. 

God had to make sure that this blessing would never replace his love for God. Before God can bless you in a special way, He needs to be sure about you. Don’t hold back anything from the Lord! Give it all to Him and He will make you a great and successful person in this life!

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…

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…
