HIGHER DIMENSIONS BY BISHOP DAG HEWARD-MILLS

HIGHER DIMENSIONS


12th April 2019

READ: 1 Corinthians 12:1-11

“But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.” - 1 Corinthians 12:7

Years ago, there was a little known pastor who flowed in all kinds of weird manifestations of the Spirit. I was curious, childlike, and I wanted to learn as much as I could. I began to attend programmes where he was ministering. I would watch in amazement as this pastor ministered under a peculiar anointing. Every kind of manifestation of the Spirit would take place.

I was surprised at the derogatory comment another pastor made about this “minister of manifestations”. With a sense of overconfidence he intimated, “These manifestations take us nowhere and there is nothing to them. What we need is the Word.” With this attitude, we cut ourselves from new and higher dimensions of God’s kingdom! God has intentionally given bits of knowledge to different parts of His body to make us need each other and ask each other for help. Today I am very comfortable in that dimension of ministry. I minister in the manifestations and demonstrations of the Spirit of God.

When I wanted to go into the healing ministry, I prayed and sought the Lord. He pointed out a particular minister and said I should follow him to receive an anointing to minister to the sick. Gradually, I climbed into a very difficult but worthwhile aspect of ministry. What an arduous journey it is to enter into new dimensions of God’s kingdom! Dear pastor, you may be kept out of many wonderful aspects of God’s kingdom because of your overconfidence, and mistaken self-importance!

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…

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

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…
