THE SUPREMACY OF THE WORD OF GOD 3

KEY SCRIPTURE: Hebrews 4:12 KJV. for the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

 God’s word is supreme and stands tall and mightier than any condition, personality or future state that we may face. Our key scripture says, the word of God is alive. It is therefore a living being. It is powerful and sharper than any double-edged sword. This word “sharper” has the meaning in the Greek as having only one stroke to get any object or condition to succumb. No weapon, medicine or device could be compared to it.

 The key scripture reveals that, the word of God, pierces to the division of the soul and spirit of a man. This reveals that God’s word is primarily to correct every wrong thing about man. It deals with the spiritual and soulish matters. It also gets into the joints and marrow, which relates to our physical body and the very depths of it. The condition of the heart is also not left out. God’s word, the Bible, is the only book that answers every detail about man.

Verse 13, of Hebrews chapter four says no creature is hidden from His sight. All things are open and naked before the word. The word ‘open’ is the Greek word “trachelizo” which means to seize the neck of a victim and bend it open. This is exactly what the word does to any condition it is applied to. It also added that all creatures, including all conditions are naked before it. There is nothing mysterious about any condition, or state that God’s word is applied to. Every problem, no matter how complex or difficult it may be, is naked and helpless, so long as one applies the word in faith.

Dear child of God, God’s word is superior and practically supreme in every matter we may face. Trust the word, confess the word, practice the word, but never be afraid of any opposition in life that rises against you. Meditate on these things to the point that your heart is fixed trusting in the Lord.

CONFESSION

The word of God is Supreme. I am very safe trusting the word of God. I allow the word to always work in and through me. Every situation is subjected to the word working through me. My life is a blessing to many and lam blessed in every way.

THE SUPREMACY OF THE WORD OF GOD 2

KEY SCRIPTURE: John 1:1 KJV” In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”

 The above scripture, ends with the phrase ‘ and the word was God’ . God and His word are one. God would always honor His word, because failure to do so means denying Himself. He says in Matt 24:35 that,” Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.” Every word of God would be fulfilled in its time. This physical world which includes the earth and the visible heaven, that is the atmospheric heaven above us does not impact on the word in any way. The word is higher and above this visible word.

In the word is life, and this life is the light of men. (John 1:4) This is why the path of the man who walks in the word shines brighter and brighter unto the perfect day. (Proverbs 4:18) Light reigns in this world. The word is light. The entrance of the word brings light, and it brings understanding to the simple (Psalm 119:130) The sure guarantee for the fulfillment of the word of God in the life of the believer is based on two unchanging things. (Heb 6:17 & 18) These two unchanging things are

1 God gave His promise by swearing to honour His word (An Oath)

2 God cannot lie (God’s nature) (Heb 6:18):

Anyone who has diligently followed the word of God has seen a tremendous improvement in His life. The word is the answer to all moral issues. Our societies are fast breaking down with violence, drugs and all forms of illicit sexual activities.

The only answer to these challenges is the word of God. Peace has eluded mankind and the word of God is the only answer. Faith in the word has brought healing to all kinds of incurable medical cases.

Dear child of God you must attend to the word as your compass showing you the way out of a lost world. Attend to it as the greatest medicine for your health. Come to the word as your psychologist bringing you a sound mind. It is your store of wisdom bringing you prosperity.

CONFESSION

I am hooked up to the word of God. Every problem is conquered. I am light to many. I bring the peace of God to countless number of people who are burdened with challenges. My way is made prosperous because I meditate and practice the word.

THE SUPREMACY OF THE WORD OF GOD

KEY SCRIPTURE: Psalms 138:2 KJV “I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name”.

 God’s word is the principle that rules the universe. All that we see physically, are products of the word. The very existence of our physical universe is sustained by the word of God. Heb 1:3 KJV “…… and upholding all things by the word of his power, ……. “Our key scripture says God has magnified His word above all His names. His name is a silent communicator of His character or being, yet His word is a commitment of what he would do, what He has done or what He expects to be done. Anything that can render His word ineffective nullifies the very existence of His being. Nothing in this universe can nullify any word spoken out of His mouth. Any man who attempts to break His word breaks himself.

The scripture or His word cannot be broken. John 10:35 KJV “If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken;” To honor the word is to be elevated or exalted. Pro 14:34 KJV “Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.” The sin of Adam and Eve was not just the fruit they ate, but the word of God they failed to honor. Obeying the word of God is choosing life, whiles disobeying it is choosing death. The word of God rules in the universe. Standing on the word would make you to rule the affairs of this life.

Our Lord Jesus emphasizing the supremacy of the word of God said, in Mat 5:18 KJV, that “For verily I say unto you, till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. A jot is like an ‘i’ and a tittle is like an accent which appears like a horn. Such small and minute part of the word, will not go without being fulfilled. God’s word is absolutely reliable. The word is of utmost importance to the Father. Once the word has gone out of His mouth, it must be honored. His word authenticates His existence. Without His word He has no expression of Himself.

CONFESSION

Thank you, Father, for your word. It is of utmost importance such that I am blessed, promoted and highly favored as I obey its teaching. Your word is infallible and my way is made brighter and brighter as I honor the word.

FELLOWSHIP OF THE HOLY SPIRIT 2

KEY SCRIPTURE: Acts 1:8 KJV “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

The fellowship of the Holy Spirit is basically not an initiative from us, but that from the Holy Spirit. It is referring to the Spirit who consciously comes to us to help us. Among other meanings of the word help in the Greek language is the word ‘sunantilambano’ These are three Greek words joined together to give one word. These words are,’ sun’ which means with or together. The next word is ‘anti’, which means ‘against’. The last word is ‘lambano’, which means ‘to take a hold of’. The meaning of that word ‘Help’ is ‘to take a hold together against’. The Holy Spirit helps us by, taking a hold together with us against everything that we face. This should come as very refreshing to us.

The Holy Spirit joins together with us in winning the lost to Christ. Our key scripture shows us that when the Spirit comes upon us He fills us with power. You are now a power house because of the fellowship of the Spirit. Power in us is not a feeling, it is the knowledge and believe of the presence of the Spirit that has given us power to witness. Witnessing is not only sharing about Christ but demonstrating the power of the risen Christ. Another aspect of the help of the Holy Spirit is to manifest health in our bodies. Romans 8:11. He quickens or makes alive our mortal bodies.

The Holy Spirit’s fellowship with us takes away fear from us. He is God, who is ever present with us. What may come our way that is mightier than Him? We must firmly acknowledge He is ever present with us to help. He is not only with us, but in us to give us peace and guidance. He comes upon us to do special assignments to bless humanity. Dear child of God, you must know that the greatest and best companion you need for a happy, successful and impactful life is present with you. Give Him that honor, love and appreciation of His help in your life. The worst harm you could do to yourself is to despise His presence with you.

CONFESSION

Sweet Holy Spirit, Mighty God, you are ever present with me. I am never alone. I always have your help to conquer every challenge life dishes out to me. Thank you, heavenly Father for giving me the Holy Spirit.

THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE HOLY GHOST

KEY SCRIPTURE :2 Corinth 13:14 KJV ” The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all”. Amen.

THIS verse reveals the trinity at work. The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit are one but three distinct persons with specific roles in the life of the Christian.  When the Lord   was with the disciples, He said that, it was expedient or profitable that He left the earth to the Father (John 16:7). This meant His physical presence was good, yet he was very much limited. His departure will allow the Holy Spirit or the comforter to come. The word comforter means one who is called to help or to accompany. In simple terms, the*i *Holy Spirit is Jesus Christ unlimited.

Since he has come to stand by us to help us continue with the work Jesus started, we must cooperate with Him. The word is fellowship. This involves communion, partnership or participate with   Him. Our Lord Jesus had a very wonderful fellowship with the Holy Spirit. He helps us to pray. Prayer is not only a means of getting things from God, but a means of participating with the Spirit. Prayer raises your spiritual antenna to hear from God. Constant prayer builds in the Christian a sense of spirituality and an awareness of the presence of God because it is the Spirit doing the prayer. To fellowship with the Spirit also involves asking the Holy Spirit for His counsel, on every issue in life. If you are searching for a missing thing, ask Him to show you where or how to locate it. He has helped me out on countless occasions.

ANOTHER aspect of fellowshipping with the Spirit, is to read and study the Holy scriptures by asking for His assistance (Psalms 119:18). Meditating on the scriptures gives Him the opportunity to expound on the word of God to you. If you do not understand any verse ask him to help you. His answers would come to you as thoughts in your mind. Live with the awareness that He is always present to help you out You would get to know insight about things that natural knowledge can’t make available to you.

CONFESSION

I have the Holy Spirit in my heart. He is my ever present help in all situations. He helps me in small and big issues of life. I am never in want of solutions to challenges. Thank you, Holy Spirit.

POSITIVE INPUT

KEY SCRIPTURE: Hebrews 4:2 KJV “For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it”.

The key scripture describes a people who could not enter into God’s rest. They did not make a positive input into the word of God to bring about a change in their affairs. There are many people who suffer various kinds of calamities and hardships. A number of them claim it is God’s way of teaching them a lesson in patience. My question is how would God place our sicknesses on Jesus and then bring them to you to teach you a lesson? Can he put our sins on Jesus and still bring sins your way to teach you a lesson?  If he will not do that for our sins which Jesus bore on the cross, why would He do that for sicknesses which the Lord Jesus also carried away according to Isaiah 53:4&5?

In all these cases we need to make a positive input to enjoy God’s blessing or rest. God on his part has given us everything that pertain unto life and godliness (2nd Peter 1:3) He has given us all promises that shows His advance provision for victory and success. We must commit our confidence and absolute reliance on these promises. We must mix the word with faith. In Christ all the promises are yes. Every promise is already fulfilled in Him (2nd Corinth 1:20) You have to make a positive input. Say yes to the word of God. Tell the Lord this word is true in my case.

IF your condition is to obtain victory over the devil, arise and say I have conquered the enemy in Jesus name. The rod of the wicked will not rest on the lot of the righteous (Psalm 125:3) Take your stand on this scripture and refuse the activities of the enemy over your life. If it is your marriage, tell the devil what God has joined together no one including the devil can separate it. Well when it has to do with the will of a second person, you need to make a lot of intercessions. In any case don’t throw in the towel. God would speak and things would turn around.

 Whatever the negative situation is, look for what God has said and agree with the scripture.  Make a positive input about the situation and you would definitely have your rest concerning that situation.

CONFESSION

The word of God is forever true. I believe and so I have whatever the word says. My condition, no matter how it is always aligns according to my faith.

FREEDOM FROM SELFISHNESS

KEY SCRIPTURE :1 Corinth 13:5 KJV “Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;”

The real challenges to the survival of men has not come from natural disaster, or even from the devil. Men have been the enemies of each other since the creation of the earth. The first death in the Bible was a brother killing his fellow brother because he was selfish and jealous. The whole world is yet to unravel the cause of Covid 19. Fingers are already pointing at the greediness and craftiness of a few who wants to control the majority. Selfishness is a very dangerous trait that must be attacked on every front.

 The sad truth about selfishness is that, it is not only the second and third parties who suffers, but the very person who is acting selfishly. Every action is a seed that one always reaps more than he sowed. Gal 6:7 KJV “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.”? Everyman without Jesus as Lord of his or her life is selfish. Your freedom begins when Jesus becomes Lord and no more yourself. Rev 3:20 KJV “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me” .This is not a lip service issue, but to sincerely surrender the Lordship of your life to Jesus.

There are some who are supposed to be Christians, yet are very selfish. If you are such a one then you must likewise surrender the Lordship of your life to the Lord Jesus. From today, you must stop living for yourself and start living for Jesus. Philippians 1:21 KJV” For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain”. This scripture should become your life pursuit and persuasion from now. Please note: only Christians who live for the Lord would make it to heaven. All those who are living for themselves would miss the rapture and if they die before the rapture they would go to hell. (Philippines 3:18)

CONFESSION

Jesus you are the Lord of my life. I live to honor and please you. I do not live for my ambitions or lust but what the Lord instructs me to do. For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.
