The Spirit of Understanding By Rev Eastwood Anaba

THE WORD SIROCCO

Theme: Purpose

Topic: The Spirit of Understanding

Scripture Reading:
John 4:20-29; 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;

Understanding is the ability to reason and draw conclusions from facts. With understanding we bring together what we know. Understanding is coordinated knowledge. Knowledge without understanding leads to spiritual error because of the inability to judge issues and the propensity to misdirect people. Our knowledge of the Scriptures should be thorough. Don’t read the portion of Scripture where God asked Moses to put off his shoes because the place he was treading upon was holy, and form a doctrine with that. Some people don’t wear footwear into the church building because of Moses’ example!

Jesus Christ feared God and was knowledgeable. He also had the Spirit of understanding. He understood God, people and situations in a way others did not understand. The captain of our spiritual lives understood the spiritual nature of worship in a way the Jews and Samaritans did not. He understood that God is a Spirit and that affects how we worship Him but the religious folk of the day did not understand the dynamics of worship (John 4:20-24).

The Spirit of understanding releases the anointing in a person’s life and makes it easy for the recipient of the anointing to be blessed by it. The Samaritan woman at the well of Jacob received the anointing on Jesus Christ’s life because of the Spirit of understanding He exuded. At the end of her interaction with Jesus Christ, she acknowledged that He was the Messiah (John 4:24-29).

Prayer:
1. Pray that the Holy Ghost will help you to understand the spiritual nature of your family, and the spiritual terrain He sends you to fulfil purpose.
2. Pray also that the Holy Ghost will give you a unique and fresh understanding into your area of business, ministry, study, etc.

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

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…
