Open Heaven of Tuesday 17th September 2013.
USE YOUR TWO WINGS
Memorise: Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows. Hebrews 1:9
Read: Hebrews 1:8-9
But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom. Hebrews 1:8
Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows. Hebrews 1:9
Bible in one year: Numbers 15-17
When a bird flies, it is usually with two wings. A bird cannot fly with one wing. As a divine wing, you need your two wings to fly. 1 Corinthians 1:22-24 talks of these two wings. It says while the Jews seek for signs, the Greeks seek for wisdom. Both are found in Jesus Christ and you need both to enjoy your flight. The power of the Holy Spirit brings the miracles and by the grace of God, for many of us, this is becoming a regular feature in the midst of God’s people. However, the area where many are lacking is in the area of wisdom. It is disturbing to know that many of us want benefits without responsibilities. In Isaiah 1:19, we see both sides: your responsibility is that you must be willing and obedient before the benefit of eating the good of the land will come.
Acts 1:8 also speaks of both sides; it says you will receive power as long as you are prepared to be a witness of the goodness of the Lord. Do you want more anointing? Hebrews 1:8 says you must love righteousness and hate iniquity so that the anointing can come. There are some people who are asking for more anointing through prayer and fasting and God is equally ready to give them, but He will not because they are not prepared to mortify their flesh. Some have not dealt with lust for the opposite sex; some have not subdued covetousness while others are still harbouring pride or unforgiveness. If God answers that prayer and releases the anointing, it will not only backfire on them but also on God’s Kingdom. In other words, why some have not received answer for more anointing is not because they have not prayed enough but because they have not balanced their request with a commensurate level of righteousness. Are you the one hindering the fresh and higher move of God in your life? Address the issue of holiness in your life, speech, dressing, attitude, deeds and thoughts. Be clean through and through.
Holiness and anointing, fruit of the Spirit and the gifts of the Spirit must be balanced or there will be trouble.
