It is what you go to the market for that you return with. You can’t go to shop for planks and return with plastics.
You can’t go shopping for kitchen wares and return with textiles. It’s what you go to the market for that you return with. As many as are here for the Word tonight, you will return with an encounter.
Today makes it 42 years exactly when God visited me in what I call the “Mount of Transfiguration.” It was a mountain of voices. I went for it, I returned with it. I went for details regarding the marching order into full time ministry. I heard in my ears, angels singing, “be in time.”
I had chapters of the Word opened to me to stir in me the vow never to borrow by the Word of the Lord. 42 years have come and gone, the things revealed, embraced and put to work, are still working now.
– May you encounter God’s Word tonight!
There is nothing called luck in the Kingdom. It’s light that differentiates one believer from another. Not just the light that you caught, but the light you walk in.
Revelation never changes people’s life, it’s applied revelation that does. Grace for an encounter accompanied with grace to put to work, receive it tonight!
John went to the Isles of Patmos for the Word of the Lord. He returned with God’s details of end time agenda for the world. He went for it, he returned with it. You must return with something tonight and this month of helps, you will encounter this eternal helper that will abide with you for life.
You will not leave your life to chance any more, every of your steps will be meaningful. Every direction you face as led by the Lord will be productive in the name of Jesus.
The prophetic focus of the month one more time is, “I will not leave you helpless.” God that cannot lie said that. Jesus who is the same yesterday, today and forever said that – Hebrews 13:8. Anybody can bank on it, rest on it. God never lies. What if they believe not? 2 Timothy 2:13; Hebrews 6:18. It is impossible for God to lie. We can bank on his Word any day, any time, anywhere. John 14:18. The word, “Comforter” literally means helper. John 14:16-18. I (Jesus) will come in the person of the Holy Spirit who shall be in you.
So he is the Help that you go about with, it’s not the help you forgot at home. Not like your handbag that you can forget where you put it, this one is inside you until you forget your life is there. That’s why every believer must ENDEAVOUR, must be thirsty to receive the baptism of the Holy Ghost because you need help, I need help.
Our needing help is not temporal – it’s as long as we live. John 16:7-11. That helper is to execute judgement against the prince of this world that is making life unbearable for multitudes – the one tormenting and afflicting man kind. The Holy Ghost is in us to execute judgement against him. Isaiah 59:19. He rises up to our defence. Whether you’re sleeping in the night, you’re in your bathroom or you’re driving to work, he is there.
In our old Church there was a man after service he was going home and armed robbers were stopping everybody and they came to him and said, “Your Royal Highness Sir, please go ahead.” He wasn’t wearing beads.
The helper showed up, “I am here.” Raw armed robbers, agents of the devil!
Interestingly the Holy Ghost comes along with diverse gifts and manifestations to help us fulfill our glorious destiny. Every child of God has a glorious destiny in Christ but not everybody ever lives to realize it. Why? The helper required is not at work, not in us. 1 Corinthians 12:4-7. The diversities of operations is for our profiting, so we need an understanding of it. 1 Corinthians 12:1.
You need to know what it’s all about, what it offers and how to engage him. According to Scriptures, every believer has a golden destiny but it takes the help of the Holy Spirit to actualize it. Zechariah 4:1-6. You can’t arrive at that golden destiny without the help of the Holy Spirit. What makes it golden? All things that make for life and godliness, he has given us. 2 Peter 1:3. Not most things, all things. What can be more golden than that? Somebody’s story is changing!
This is why Believers are helpless without the Holy Spirit. We are helplessly helpless. Just like the body without the spirit is dead, the body without the Spirit is helpless. James 2:26. A dead man is helpless. He can’t feel, move, react, respond, that’s how helpless a believer is without the Holy Spirit.
Luke 24:49; Luke 10:19. So there are serpents and all stuff on the way, we need help – the help of the Spirit to overcome them. Romans 8:11. He quickens us, turns our bodies from natural to supernatural against the assault of the enemy. Fire could not burn them (the 3 Hebrew boys) because he was there. Daniel 3:26.
Tonight we are looking at one of his diverse operations which is called the Spirit of Obedience. Obedience of faith is definitely a vital key to a life of fulfillment. Ezekiel 36:27. There is a spirit of obedience that empowers us or engraces us to walk in his statutes, keep his judgements and do them.
