Spiritual Maturity - Walking in the Spirit

I had the privilege of meeting many servants of God who had spiritual experiences that were extra ordinary. Two of such ministers of God were Nancy Coen, who visited me once, and Dr Adonijah Ogbonnaya or Dr ‘O’ who met me in my office twice. They were both mighty ministers of God. Their lives and ministries encouraged me. My meetings with them were divinely arranged. 

Nancy Coen told me that we both shared the same experience of ‘rapture’ daily and Dr ‘O’  told me that our ministry was like the 'Four Face Creature' (as the words were also given by two other prophets) and our sanctuary was the gate to heaven. Their sharings were a confirmation to me that God has a special divine purpose for our ministry. 

I had shared only some of my spiritual experiences especially of what I have seen in the spirit with selected Spirit-filled matured Christians. What I saw in the spirit was like ‘short movie trailer.’ Perhaps, it was like Paul who was caught up to third heaven and heard inexpressible things, things that man is not permitted to tell (2 Corinthians 12:4).

God created us in the spirit and puts us in our mother’s womb to be birthed with a physical body. We need to free our human spirit entrapped in our physical body which is weighed down by our sinful nature. We need God’s strength to empower us to overcome over flesh through His Spirit in our inner being (Ephesians 3:16).

The resurrection power of our Lord Jesus that set us free is an awesome force that could launch us into His divine orbit. It is like a spacecraft in orbit, not affected by earth's gravity, that enable one to see earth very clearly. When we are in such spiritual orbit, our spirit can see things in the spiritual realm that others cannot see. It is a revelatory enabling of God. 

With the ability to see things clearer with the mind of Christ, we will see with the love of God and will not be judgemental and critical of others like engaging in unhealthy gossips, petty talks and unknowingly, doing the bidding of our accuser. We should, instead encourage one another and build each other up, holding our brothers in the highest regard in love because of their work for the Lord and live in peace with each other (1 Thessalonians 5:11, 13).

Every Christian must grow towards spiritual maturity, into the likeness of Christ by truly living and walking in the Spirit. To attain this, our body, which is the temple of God, must be filled with the fullness of God, as God gives the Spirit without limit (John 3:34) and not just be contented with a little deposit of His Spirit when we were saved (2 Corinthians 1:22).

Ephesians 4:13 tells us that believers must grow.... "until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ." 

Spiritual growth is important. In the natural, if a child ceased to grow physically, the parents would be very concerned. Medical examination and consultation would be done. Likewise, if a Christian stops growing, help is needed. It would be wise to get a spiritual checkup to examine our love for God and others. What is the state of our heart and attitude? Have we lost the fire for God? 

Share briefly the transition of our ministries during the COVID-19 Pandemic.

To God be the power and glory for ever and ever. Amen.

God bless you!
