SPIRITUAL POWER BY BISHOP DAG HEWARD-MILLS

SPIRITUAL POWER

3rd April 2019
READ: 2 Kings 3:21-4:1
“For the preaching of the cross is…the power of God” - 1 Corinthians 1:18
The cross is the symbol of Christianity. The preaching of the cross is the preaching of sacrifice. It is also the preaching of power. As Christians, we should preach about the cross. We must be proud of the cross of Jesus Christ. It is the symbol of the church, and a symbol of obedience and sacrifice! The Bible tells us in the verse we read, that the preaching of Christ is foolishness to those that are perishing, but unto us, it is the power of God.
Sacrifices release spiritual power! This explains why many demonic rituals involve some kind of sacrifice of animals and sometimes of human beings. The king of Moab sacrificed his son when he saw that he was losing a battle with the Israelites. The sacrifice turned away the approaching armies. Power was released by sacrificing the king’s son. This saved his life and saved the lives of his people. Learn this principle—sacrifice will always release power. Many pastors and leaders of churches are powerless because they make no sacrifices for the Lord and have no intention to.
Some years ago, the church in Switzerland was very powerful. They sent missionaries to Ghana, even though they could not speak Ghanaian languages.
If I were to send people to certain places for missionary work, there would be an outcry. This is why there is no power in our ministries. There is power when there is sacrifice!

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

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…
