The Spirit of Counsel By Rev Eastwood Anaba

THE WORD SIROCCO
Sunday, April 14, 2019


Theme: Purpose

Topic: The Spirit of Counsel

Scripture Reading:
Matthew 5:38-42; Luke 4:1-19

Main Text:
Isaiah 11:2
2  And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD;

Counsel is advice. With counsel, we achieve the purpose of Jesus Christ for the Church. Counsel is the impartation of wisdom. Counsel is wisdom in distribution. Sharing is the principle here. Selfishness should not be found in the anointing of the Holy Ghost. The wisdom of the Holy Ghost is for the edification of the entire Body of Christ.

The Spirit of counsel gives instruction and direction to others to save them, enable them to obtain results and become victorious in their battles. Those who are on the receiving end of counsel should be humble enough to receive it from others. Jesus Christ demonstrated the Spirit of counsel when He directed those who were being oppressed to turn the other cheek. This counsel sounded foolish to the natural person but in the Spirit, it was a powerful tool to overcome oppression (Matthew 5:38).

Spiritual counsel is diametrically opposed to earthly counsel. It does not appeal to the senses but it is very powerful. The natural person cannot receive the Spirit of counsel because it is foolishness to him or her. The virtues under consideration are the beautifying agents of the anointing. If they are absent the anointing cannot serve its purpose.

Prayer:
1. Pray for the Spirit of Counsel to impart the wisdom God gives you to others.
2. Pray also for the grace and heart to distribute wisdom.

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…
