THE 7 SPIRITS OF GOD

I want to share with you today one of the most important messages you will ever come across. Please don’t get me wrong, it will not be because of my writing ability or skill but by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. Sequel to this, I have established the fact that your prosperity is tied to the third person of the God-head, the Spirit of the living God.

To further show the importance and indispensability of the Holy Spirit, God had to rely on him during creation. The bible describes that the earth was null and void and darkness was upon the face of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering on the surface of the water. So here we can see the Holy Spirit was there during creation and the moment the father declared,’ let there be light’ the Spirit of God went into action to put on the switch. Jesus Christ promised us he will send another comforter to comfort us when he was departing the earth. Today we have the Holy Spirit here with us to guide us into our glorious destinies. Please open you heart today.

I want to share with you today about the 7 Spirits of God. Are there 7 Spirits? The Holy Spirit is one but has 7 basic functionalities otherwise known as the 7 Spirits of God. I want to open your eyes to the multi-dimensional roles of the Spirit of God in the life of a believer. But before I proceed I want to lay a very important foundation because it is quite important.

I hope you have received Jesus Christ into your life because it is the prerequisite to receiving the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues; If not, I will like you to embrace Jesus Christ today, he wants to be the lord of your life and he is our access to the Holy Spirit. It doesn’t matter what you have done, God is willing to accept you today. The bible says for all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. Life without Christ is full of crisis, Jesus is here today with his stretched out arm asking you to embrace him. Please understand only God can give you true happiness and he is the only one that can give you joy. No amount of worldly activities be it at Dubai or Milan can give you joy, it can only come from God. There can be temporary moments of fun but after all is said and done, you’ll have to face the challenge. Please stop trying to spend money on the affairs of this world to get happiness because no amount of alcohol, women, food or vacation will give you joy.

Let me share a personal experience with you today: while ministering in a fellowship I decided to teach on the Holy Spirit; after the teaching session, I began to lead them in prayer to receive the Holy Spirit. Mid-way into the prayer, I had a leading in my spirit to lead them to Christ, I ignored the prompting because I assumed wrongly they should have received Jesus into their lives. After some few minutes the message came again to lead them to Christ, this time around I stopped and asked: how many of you are born again? To my utter dismay only two hands were in the air. The Holy Spirit was responsible for the information because the bible says, for as many as are led by the Spirit of God; they are the sons of God. There is no way the Holy Spirit would come into a sinners life, that is the reason the Holy Spirit told me to lead them to Jesus before he could come into their lives.

If you have not accepted Jesus Christ, Please say this short prayer:
Heavenly Father, I come to you today in the name of Jesus, I believe Jesus died for my sins and on the third day rose from the dead. I accept Jesus as my personal lord and saviour. Jesus come into my life. I believe I am saved. Please take note, a change has occurred in your spirit man because it has received illumination from God; nevertheless, your body must be subdued and your mind must be renewed daily with the word of God. It is a process but you will get there.
Now to receive the Holy Spirit into your life it is the same process because for every one that asketh receiveth.

I want to share my experience with you: more than a decade ago, under the ministry of Bishop David Oyedepo, he told those of us willing to receive the Holy Spirit to come out. I joined those who went forward for the empowerment, after we opened our mouth and prayed for the Holy Spirit to come into our lives, some started speaking in tongues which is a manifestation of the Spirit. Those who ‘hadn’t received’ were told to remain while those who had received were told to go back to their seats. The prayer sessions continued and more people received and it started getting embarrassing for me because we were very few left.

Something happened, one of the ministers said something profound on that day, he made us realise, the moment we asked the Holy Spirit to come into our lives, he entered. Please take note that the Holy Spirit never muscles anyone, he will never go against your will, he is a gentle Spirit. If you don’t want him in your life, he will stay away. Now he said another interesting thing, ‘open your mouth and begin to speak by faith’. That was what broke the ice, I along with others were waiting for the Holy Spirit to speak but it is not so, we have to do the speaking and the utterances will flow. I was waiting for a physical manifestation even though I had received perhaps 30 minutes before the pastor gave the explanation. I opened my mouth and began to speak albeit a syllable. Later the devil tried to deceive me by making me feel, I was saying rubbish, I simply told him to let me be because the ‘rubbish’ was never in my spirit before then. As you speak, the tongues will get better. Please lay aside every weight that can hinder you, open your mind, and humble yourself before God.

Please take a moment to read from the gospels before you say the prayer.
And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? Or if he asks a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent? Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: HOW MUCH MORE shall your Heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him? (Luke 11:9-13).

Please say this short prayer: Your Word says that if I will ask I will receive the Holy Spirit, so in the Name of Jesus Christ, my Lord, I am asking You to fill me to overflowing with Your precious Holy Spirit. Jesus, baptize me in the Holy Spirit. Because of Your Word, I believe that I now receive and I thank You for it. I believe that the Holy Spirit is within me and by faith I accept it. Now, Holy Spirit, rise up within me as I praise my God. I fully expect to speak with other tongues as you give me the utterance.

Now begin to thank God for filling you with the Holy Spirit and begin to praise him. The tongues will start rising up within you, open your mouth and begin to speak, it doesn’t matter if it’s a syllable, that is the way you start typical of a baby learning a new language. Continue to speak for as long as you like.

I will be talking about the 7 Spirits of God in the next piece, its important you get a proper perspective and foundation before I go into it.
