SPIRIT OF POWER, LOVE & SOUND MIND

Today is a day where God is giving you His Holy Spirit! Now Jesus told us one important thing to pray about and that was to pray for the Holy Spirit. I believe today that as you read this word, God will pour out His Holy Spirit upon you. When the Holy Spirit is given to you, beautiful things begin to happen. “Upon the land of my people shall come up thorns and briers; yea, upon all the houses of joy in the joyous city: Because the palaces shall be forsaken; the multitude of the city shall be left; the forts and towers shall be for dens for ever, a joy of wild asses, a pasture of flocks; Until the spirit be poured upon us from on high, and the wilderness be a fruitful field, and the fruitful field be counted for a forest” (Isaiah 32:13-15). When He gives you the Holy Spirit, the wilderness of your life will be a fruitful field. So, anyone who is not able to be a good Christian, you are receiving the Holy Spirit so that the wilderness in your life will be turned into a controlled, fruitful field. Your life will be controlled by God. All forms of wild things running around in your life are coming to an end today in Jesus name. Receive the Holy Spirit!

“When I call to remembrance the unfeigned faith that is in thee, which dwelt first in thy grandmother Lois, and thy mother Eunice; and I am persuaded that in thee also. Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of God, which is in thee by the putting on of my hands. For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind” (2 Timothy 1:5-7). There is a theory that some things are passed on spiritually (2 Timothy 1:5). Therefore, you must be careful. The gift of God is such that is must be stirred up. Now, you can have a gift but it may not be useful to you. It is like receiving a package and not opening it. Until that package is opened, it is not useful to you! Many people have gifts. There are an abundance of individuals with gifts but as to whether their gifts can ever be used is the question. There is more to the gift than just having it. When God gives you a gift, you need to overcome fear and then He gives you a spirit of power, love and a sound mind to activate the gift. With these three spirits, you can stir up your gift and use it. When you have the spirit of fear, it means that you cannot work. However, God has given us something to enable the use of whatever gift we have. You may be gifted as a beautiful girl but your beauty may not give to you the gift of a marriage or a happy marriage at that. The great gift that God is giving to you is going to be made real and possible by these spirits: spirit of power, spirit of love and spirit of sound mind. Whatever gift you have, whether singing, dancing, business savviness or whatever it may be, you need these spirits to stir up your gift. Receive the spirit of power, the spirit of love and the spirit of a sound mind today in Jesus name.

YOU MUST LOVE THE LORD

For weeks, I have shared with you all on reasons why we must serve the Lord. We have not only heard the importance of being a servant of the Lord but also the benefits that come with such a service. Today, I will continue to share with you all on why you must love the Lord.

Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying,Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.This is the first and great commandment” (Matthew 22:35-38).” Now the word “tempt” in this passage means to be tested. Jesus was given a test to tell the people which commandment was the greatest. This was a test because there are numerous commandments in the Bible. No human being could have easily answered this question the way Jesus did. If Jesus had not answered this question, there would have been many answers for it. Worshipers would have said singing; evangelist would have said going out into the world and many more. When I tell you that you must love the Lord, you must believe that it is very important. It is more important than anything else in your life. I want you to decide today that you will love him.

There are many good reasons to love the Lord but there are a few I want to share with you. And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose” (Romans 8:28). It is only in movies that everything always works out for the characters. However, there is a special promise for those who love God, not believers, not Christians, but those who love God. This promise is that everything will work out for good to them. Just like it always works out for Rambo, James Bond, Steven Siegel and characters in the movies, God has promised that everything in life will work out for those who love him!

1 Corinthians 2:9 tells us “But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.” This is also a promise to only those who love God. There are levels that those who love God have not even tasted of yet. No eye has seen it neither has ear heard of the many great things God is doing, changing and orchestrating in your life just because you love him. What God has for you that is coming, you have not even thought about yet. These two verses alone show you that loving God is a very wonderful and rewarding experience. If you do not love the Lord, begin to do so now! I see you becoming a lover of God! You must love the Lord.

WHAT IT MEANS TO WALK IN LOVE – PT 5

What does it mean to walk in love? To walk in love is to inspire others to also love. Love inspires so when you walk in love you inspire other people. 1 John 4:11 tells us that God loves us so we must also love one another.  If we are experiencing God’s love then it should inspire us to love each other. This is why a lot of people love Jesus Christ, because He has loved us. To walk in love is to set off a chain reaction of love. When a chain reaction is set off, you find out that it sets off more reactions. So when you love someone it gets to a point where the person is no longer left with an option but to love you. This is how boys successfully chase girls. WHAT A SHOCK!

Also, to walk in love is to have God in you or the anointing in you. “No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.” (1 John 4:12). One of the things about an anointed person is love. You cannot be anointed without having love because the anointing is God and God himself is love. If you have love and walk in it, there is anointing in you and also power. The anointing is God’s nature so why would He anoint wickedness? If you are constantly quarreling. backbiting, rebelling, creating confusion and breaking up churches ask yourself this question “is God really in me?”

Love is something you must be able to believe. 1 John 4:16 says “And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us…” Your love towards others must be believable! As we walk around we hear a lot of people saying “I love you”. We have said it so much that it is like saying twinkle twinkle little star because there is no evidence that backs that statement of “I love you”. God backed His love for us by sending us His son. Love is not just about words but in deed, in action, in doing and in truth (1 John 3:18).

May the Lord touch us to love Him and to walk in His love.

Blessings!

WHAT IT MEANS TO LOVE cont.

“Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.” – Ephesians 5:1-2

Love is something that a lot of people talk and sing about. Many many songs are love songs because it is something that we as human beings desire, fantasize and yearn for. Love can be imperfect and directed. There are many ways to love.

You must not love like Cain did. You must not love with territorial love, terminator love or eliminator love. This form of love is basically the type that you find in wild animals (1 John 3:14). If you study certain animals such as lions and dogs, you see them marking their territory with urine. If any of their fellow lions or dogs cross that territory they are done for. We have certain people who practice this kind of love. If you cross their area of “my husband” or “my beloved” you will be eliminated.

An absence of love means that you are dead. 1 John 3:14 tells us that whoever does not abide in love is dead! Wherever there is no love, it is always like living in a place of death. So do not marry someone because they have money or can give you a green card but marry because of love. Even those who marry with love do not have an easy time in their marriage so to marry without the presence of love is guaranteed death. This is why it is difficult to serve God without loving Him. Things that are not done with love are extremely difficult to like and continue in.

Blessings!

 

HOW TO WALK IN LOVE

“Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling savour. But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints; Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks” – Ephesians 5:1-4

Love is a very important area of our lives. That is why we have a lot of problems in relationships and inter-relationships. What does it mean to walk in love? You can learn about what it means to walk in love by looking at what it does not mean. According to Ephesians 5, to walk in love does not mean to have sex. The Bible tells us to walk in love as Christ did. Obviously, Christ did not sleep with us so having sex does not mean that you are walking in love. This explains why people can have sex with each other and later kill each other. To walk in love means to have a godly characteristic and to depart from the ways of a wild animal.

When someone comes close to you, they should feel love emanating from you. Your true godliness is measured by the amount of Christian love found in you. It is not determined by the amount of prayer because God does not pray. If you want to be like God, it is not prayer but love that must be found within you. To walk in love is do something that the other person perceives as love. We all understand and interpret what love means differently. That is why if you love someone, you must love them according to their definition of love and not yours. God tells us that if we love Him, we should keep His commandments. To God, loving Him means obeying His commandments.

May God grant you the grace to walk in true love. Blessings!

IRON SHARPENTH IRON UK 2014

So soon, the first ever Iron Sharpeneth Iron Conference held in the UK this year has come to an end. This year marked the first time the conference had been held outside of Accra, Ghana and it was truly a success. People from all over the world and from various churches made their way to the UK to receive and be blessed by this year’s conference. The theme for ISI UK 2014 was The Gifts and Calling of God Are Without Repentance.  “For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance” – Romans 11:29

At this year’s conference, I began teaching on the four different phases of ministry, drawing from the life of Jesus Christ. I also spoke about catching the anointing and the importance of having the Holy Spirit lead you in all aspects of your ministry. Without the Holy Spirit, your ministry will be cut short. As the conference ended, I believe that we have all been changed. May we develop the art of hearing and being led by Holy Spirit. If you want to hear more from this year’s ISI UK you can visit the latest message section of daghewardmills.org or subscribe to my podcast.

Blessings!

THE VOICE OF THE BIBLE

Sometimes I wonder “is it possible to live a supernatural life in the natural realm?” The answer to this question is yes it is! There are many ways you can continue to live a supernatural life in this natural world.

One way you can maneuver and circumvent in this very accursed system is to be led by the Spirit. The Bible says that as many as are led by the Spirit they become the sons of God or supernatural. When you live a supernatural life, you are guided and led by the Holy Spirit. When the Holy Spirit is working, we sometimes begin to believe that every aspect of our lives become supernatural but that is not the case. As we see in Acts 4, the disciples were still arrested even while being led by the Spirit! However, you must not be confused or question if the Holy Spirit is working when things in the natural realm go bad. I tell you that the Spirit is still at work but so are the laws of the natural world. That is why you must carefully understand and do the right things both in the natural and spirit realm!

We are told in 1 Timothy 3:16 that all scripture is given by inspiration of God. This means that every portion of the Bible is truly God-breathed. Inspired means that there is power behind the words written in the Bible. That is why Jesus stated that the words that He spoke were spirit and life! Words have the power to affect you! That is why you must be able to tell the difference between inspired and uninspired words!

Your life truly changes when you begin to believe that every scripture is inspired by God. There are two kinds of people in this world: those who believe that the Bible contains the Word of God and those who believe that the Bible is the Word of God. Which of these people are you? The voice of the Bible must truly be the more important to you than the voice of any pastor, teacher, evangelist or prophet! People are searching for inspired words and we must turn them to the inspired words of the Bible. It is unfortunate that many people have grown up without the inspired words of the Bible and are therefore lonely!!

You must learn to find a scripture to back everything and anything you do and say. That is why your favorite question must be “what verse is that?” Anytime you refer to the Bible to make a decision,  it truly shows that you are led by the voice of the Bible; which is the inspired Word of God. Learn to live in the natural world but under the influence of the Holy Spirit. I see your life transforming under the influence of the Holy Spirit.

Blessings!

 

JESUS CHRIST, THE SAVIOUR AND THE HEALER OF THIS WORLD

Jesus Christ is the Saviour and the healer of this world. Luke 2:11 tells us that “for unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour”. 1 John 4:14 “we have seen and do testified that the father hath sent the son to be the savior of the world.” Acts 5:30-31 “the God of our Fathers raised up Jesus, whom ye slew and hanged on a tree. Him has God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Savior, for to give repentance and forgiveness of sins. What did Jesus Christ come to save us from when he came down to the earth? He did not come to save us from the lack of electricity, the lack of running water or the lack of schools. Matthew 1:19-21 tells us that Jesus came to save His people, us, from our sins! Were it not for the blood of Jesus, if you had ever lied, stolen, committed fornication, murdered, been jealous or envious before there would be no hope for you whatsoever! We are sins full of wretchedness yet God commended His love. Our sin is the most difficult thing about us. Sin has a way of shorten our lives. When sin is fully developed, it kills us. This is why it is so important to constantly pray for forgiveness of sins. We must preach the pure word of God to give those without hope the gift of Jesus Christ

He Is A Healing Jesus

By the grace of God, I have been in Liberia for the past couple of weeks. The Lord has not ceased to amaze me with the wonders and miracles that He has done here in Liberia. By the grace of God, We have held Campaigns in Zwerdu, Ganta, Gbarnga, Kakata and Godwilling tomorrow, I will be in Buchanan, Liberia! Yesterday being the end of our time in Kakata, the presence of the Lord and present!

The Lord did many fantastic miracles in Kakata! A man who had been completely blind for 5 years received his healing. He said he knew the Lord would heal him – he had hoped against all hope for years. Both he and his wife rejoiced before the Lord. Also, A young boy who was born blind received his healing. His auntie testified that they were far at the back and had to press their way through the crowd. The little boy believed with all his heart that he would be healed – and the Lord rewarded his faith.  After the prayer he told his auntie ‘I can see everything!’. His auntie could not control her tears of joy.

The miracles continued as a lady who had been bitten by a snake three times received her healing! Her finger was completely stiff due to the effects bites. While we were praying, I felt strongly that  someone who has been bitten by a snake was being healed. This woman heard and received her healing and can now move her fingers. What a marvelous God!

I believe than an angel of the Lord would continue to move around Kakata and more miracles would occur after the campaign ends. We thank God for what he has already done and what he is going to do in Kakata.

Today, we embark on another journey to Buchanan Liberia! Souls will be won, in Jesus name! Blessings!

PRAYER MAKES A DIFFERENCE

The art of prayer is the art of knowing how to talk to a great person. Prayer is something we must learn how to do. If not we do not learn we will never know how to properly prayer. This was the reason why the disciples asked Jesus to teach them how to pray in Luke 11:1. There are few things we must remember to properly and effectively pray to God.

When we go before God in prayer, we must not mention our desires immediately. When we approach God mentioning our desires at once, we are approaching him like beggars. No one has a long term relationship with beggars they see in the street. In the same way, when we come to God immediately mentioning our desires, we will have a short lived relationship with Him. Furthermore, when praying we must not mention our needs. We must never go to God mentioning the things we need from Him. He already knows what we need so we must first enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praises.

We must learn to wait upon God during prayer because they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength..” (Isaiah 40:31).  You learn how to stay in the presence of God by timing yourself. We must be able to pray for an hour and wait on God. In prayer, we must acknowledge the greatness of God without being flatterers. When you meet an important person, you must know some of the great things the person has done. If you do not, the person will realize that they are talking to someone “nonscoring”. The same way when we come to God we must not talk too much but from our hearts.We must learn to talk about God’s interests in prayer. When we cannot talk to God about what He is interested in we cannot pray for long hours.

When we do not pray, the events of our life are determined by jackpots, flukes and happenstances. When we refuse to pray our lives take sudden turns that are because of lucky breaks and quirks. Others are making decisions concerning our lives so we must use prayer to direct our lives. Prayer is our way of allowing God and not man to direct the steps of our lives. I see us all learning the art of prayer!

Blessings!
