Revival and unity in churches: The difference between the Anointing of the Spirit and the Power of the Spirit, How to keep the Power -Day 2 & 3 of 40
Friends, thanks for your prayers. This is to confirm that 4 states are now covered. Namely:
I am passing the night in Maiduguri today and proceed to Gombe, Adamawa, Taraba to cover the North East, which are the most troubling part of Nigeria in terms of security situation. There is only one highway in and out of Maiduguri as other roads are closed off as a result of the security situation.
I am driving and an angel was assigned to accompany me in this assignment.
We met the chairman of the youth wing of the Christian Association of Nigeria covering the entire North East with their PRO and secretaries. The letter was delivered and will be distributed to the youth wings of the various churches within the NE.
Fellowship of Christian Student have also received their copies and distribution was initiated for both Primary, Secondary and Universities where they currently have presence in over 30 states nationwide.
Apart from issuing the letters, proclaimation are ongoing and anointing the earth with oil which was prayed over and into during the 40 days fast. This is to dedicate the land and set it apart for the move of the Holy Spirit as we do the needful – Repentance!
Something to reflect on:
Have you prayed, fasted over a long period on an issue that will not just move? It is possible you are unwilling to pay the price that might involve your dying.
Dying comes in different shapes and sizes, not necessarily the same for everyone but certainly and surely, their would be a price. When you take a request to the throne room, there will always be an instruction that does not appeal to Mr or Mrs flesh. If we refuse to die in that area, answers will be delayed.
_There are no shortcuts in our work and walk with the Lord. There is a price and it varies from persons to persons:_
*Read this from Jesus’ lips*
_33 But turning around [with His back to Peter] and seeing His disciples, He rebuked Peter, saying, “Get behind Me, Satan; for your mind is not set on God’s will or His values and purposes, but on what pleases man.”_
_34 Jesus called the crowd together with His disciples, and said to them, “If anyone wishes to follow Me [as My disciple], he must deny himself [set aside selfish interests], and [a]take up his cross [expressing a willingness to endure whatever may come] and follow Me [believing in Me, conforming to My example in living and, if need be, suffering or perhaps dying because of faith in Me]. 35 For whoever wishes to save his life [in this world] will [eventually] lose it [through death], but whoever loses his life [in this world] for My sake and the gospel’s will save it [from the consequences of sin and separation from God]_
Now, let’s look at our title today – *The difference between the Anointing of the Spirit and the Power of the Spirit, How to keep the power Day 2 & 3 of 40*
Scripture: FOR THOUGH WE WALK IN THE FLESH, WE DO FNOT WAR ACCORDING TO THE FLESH.FOR THE WEAPONS OF OUR WARFARE ARE NOT CAR- NAL BUT MIGHTY IN GOD FOR PULLING DOWN STRONGHOLDS, CASTING DOWN ARGUMENTS AND EVERY HIGH THING THAT EXALTS ITSELF AGAINST THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD, BRINGING EVERY THOUGHT INTO CAPTIVITY TO THE OBE- DIENCE OF CHRIST, AND BEING READY TO PUN-
ISH ALL DISOBEDIENCE WHEN YOUR OBEDIENCE
IS FULFILLED (2 CORINTHIANS 10:3-6).
Being filled with the Spirit does not make you ready to move into the fullness of your calling in power.
to submit to the discipline of the Holy Spirit in the crucial works of prayer,fasting,and the skillful use of His Word as a weapon. Then we will go forth in the power of the Spirit to do God’s will.
Fasting helps release the power of the Spirit in our lives. It facilitates the freer flow of the Holy Spirit through you by removing all the junk in your life.This can only be accomplished through times of fasting and prayer.
If you give yourself to the Lord in a life that’s committed to prayer and to fasting, His anointing will begin to flow through you in greater and greater power.
The difference between the anointing of the Spirit and the
power of the Spirit is dramatic.The disciples had enjoyed success during an extensive tour of ministry, but suddenly they hit rock bottom when they encountered an evil spirit that refused to yield to the delegated authority the disciples had (see Matt.17:14-21). They didn’t have the power to overcome the demon they faced. The credibility of their ministry had been totally compromised.
*“If you give yourself to the Lord in a life that’s committed to prayer and to fasting, His anointing will begin to flow through you in greater and greater power.”*
1) How have you seen this work in your experience?
2) How has the anointing come to your ministry and life?
3) What are some ways that you can incorporate prayer and fasting into your lifestyle in order to release an increase of the flow of the anointing through your life?
