GET DRUNK WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT.

Published

on

TO THE BIBLE: Ephesians 5:18-19 KJV

“And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord.”

LET’S TALK

You ought to be perpetually filled with the Spirit, and it’s something you can make happen for yourself. It’s not God’s responsibility to get you filled or drunk with the Spirit. The instruction is that “you” get yourself filled with the Spirit by doing the things listed in Ephesians 5:18-19: “Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord.” This means speaking the Word to yourself in psalms, and hymns, and spiritual songs, and then singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord through the Spirit—through praying in other tongues. Paul said, “…I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also” (1 Corinthians 14:15 KJV).

“Singing with the spirit” is singing in other tongues, and that’s what he means by speaking to yourself in “spiritual songs.” Therefore, to be filled with the Spirit, you ought to speak in tongues, sing in tongues, and make melodies in your heart to the Lord.

Maybe you’re facing challenges in your academics, finances, or even in your health, if you’ve received the Holy Spirit, happy are you! Get into your closet and act on the Word. Tell yourself, “I’m what God says I am! Greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world! I am a victor in Christ Jesus! I can never be disadvantaged!” Then sing the Word in psalms and hymns and make melody of the Word in your heart to the Lord. Speak in other tongues and declare the wisdom of God in your understanding.

Pray

Dear Lord, I thank you for the infilling of your Spirit. Your glory is manifested in and through me today, and your wisdom is seen and heard in my words and in my actions, because I’m full of the Spirit, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

RHAPSODY OF REALITIES 3RD JANUARY, 2021, THE WORD AND YOUR EXPERIENCE

BRING THEM BACK!

Be Concerned For Those Who May Have Strayed Away

Rhapsody of Realities TEEVO 5TH January 2021.

TO THE BIBLE Luke 15:23-24

“…Bring the fatted calf here and kill it, and let us eat and be merry; for this my son was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found….”

LET’S TALK

“Speaking of Jamie, I don’t think I’ve seen him in Church for a while; perhaps I will give him a call?” “Better yet, let’s go visit him at his place; I’m sure he will appreciate the visit,” Tom suggested to Phil.

n a church, particularly one with a large congregation, it’s possible for some members to be inconsistent in their attendance; some may even have stopped coming altogether. This may not be immediately obvious, especially if the church is always full during the services.

As Christians and soul winners, we should be concerned enough to know if anyone in our congregation has strayed away or fallen by the wayside. In Luke 15, the Lord Jesus told the parable of a shepherd with one hundred sheep. One of them got missing, and he left the ninety-nine in the wilderness to search for the missing sheep. When he found it, he carried it home rejoicing, and invited his friends and neighbours to celebrate with him. Then, Jesus said, “…Likewise there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine just persons who need no repentance” (Luke 15:7).

Jesus was preaching here to the Jews. He was talking to them about the lost. Understand that He wasn’t talking about one who had never come to the Lord, but one who had strayed away. There’s a difference between the one who has never been inside (the church) and the one who was inside, but strayed away. Remember, Jesus was dealing with Old Testament church here; so He wasn’t referring to the lost sinners of the world.

Matthew 10:5-6 says, “These twelve Jesus sent out and commanded them, saying: “Do not go into the way of the Gentiles, and do not enter a city of the Samaritans. But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.” The Lord is sending you today to that brother or sister who no longer comes to church. Don’t give up on them; find them, intercede for them and win them back. When you bring them back, the Bible says there’ll be great joy in heaven. This is something you have to do.

Ephesians 3:14-17; Galatians 4:19; Galatians 6:1

Pray

Dear Father, thank you for making me genuinely concerned about your children who have strayed from the way. I pray that Christ be formed in them, and that they’d be established, rooted and grounded in your love, being fully persuaded that in you alone lie their joy and total fulfilment, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south (Psalm 75:6).

For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south

PROMOTE HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS

RHAPSODY OF REALITIES 4TH JANUARY, 2020

For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south (Psalm 75:6).

When God puts you in a particular job or business, His interest isn’t about the office or your designation. What matters to Him is how effectively you’re using your office to promote His righteousness. He wants you passionate for the Gospel, and the establishment of His Kingdom in the hearts of men and nations of the earth.

Everywhere you are, be busy for the Lord. Stand for Him. You’re His ambassador, and a minister of reconciliation (2 Corinthians 5:20-21). What counts the most in your life is what you do with the Gospel, for the salvation of men, regardless of your vocation.

The Apostle Paul, in 2 Corinthians 8:23, commended certain individuals who were with him on his missionary journeys. He was proud of their commitment to the Gospel and said, “…they are the messengers of the churches, and the glory of Christ.” What a testimony! Messengers of the churches and the glory of Christ. What an honour! It makes no difference where you are, or what your vocation is; see yourself as a sent one, representing the Church and the glory of Christ.

Preach the Gospel. Minister the Word to those in your world. The Bible says He’s made you an “able minister of the New Testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter kills, but the spirit gives life” (2 Corinthians 3:6). You’re God’s mouthpiece; speak for Him! Do His work. Do great things for the Kingdom. Be bold. Let nothing keep you quiet. Keep bearing His message of faith, hope and love with urgency, for the end of all things is near (1 Peter 4:7).

PRAYER

Blessed Father, I thank you for the grace you’ve granted me to be relevant in the ministry of the Gospel, preaching and spreading your righteousness around the world. My life is the testimony of your power as I bear witness of Christ and testify of His saving grace, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
