Humanness Overshadowed By Rev Eastwood Anaba

THE WORD SIROCCO
Monday, April 8, 2019


Theme: Purpose

Topic: Humanness Overshadowed

Scripture Reading:
Philippians 2:5-11; Luke 4:1-19

Main Text:
Hebrews 2:14
14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;

You cannot destroy the works of the devil without the Holy Ghost coming upon you. Those who try to fulfil God’s mandate with their own wisdom and strength are not able to do so.  Some destroy themselves in the process. It was imperative for Jesus Christ to have the Holy  Ghost upon  Him, because  He “was made in the  likeness of men and found in fashion as a man”. He could only fulfil His purpose through the overwhelming influence of the Holy  Ghost.

Jesus Christ being made in the likeness of men, was a partaker of human weaknesses though He did not sin.  He was subject to pain,  hunger, discouragement and death.  The  Holy Ghost was upon Him to empower Him to overcome human frailty to do God’s will.  You cannot fulfil God’s purpose for your life through any other means.

When the Spirit of the Lord is upon you, your fears and weaknesses are overshadowed. Jesus Christ was empowered by the  Holy Ghost to set the example for you. As the captain of your salvation, He shows you how to live victoriously through the power of the Holy Ghost.  You can’t destroy the works of the devil in your flesh.  You can’t do God’s will with your wisdom and strength.  Your humanness is not at the devil’s level of operation.  Your flesh can’t faithfully execute God ’s plans.

Prayer:
1. Pray for yourself that the Holy Ghost will superimpose His strength upon you, and suppress your frailties to enable you fulfil His purpose.
2. Pray also that the Holy Ghost will overshadow your human wisdom with His wisdom as you seek to do His will.

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

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…
