The Word and the Spirit

Paul said in 2 Corinthians 8:20-21, “We want to avoid any criticism of the way we administer this liberal gift. For we are taking the pains to do what is right, not only in the eyes of the Lord but also in the eyes of men.”

Our ministry of administering Fire Impartation has often been misunderstood. As a result, we have been criticised, discredited and mocked by some ministers of God who are powerful in sermon but lack the understanding of ministering in the power of the word, for our Lord Jesus said in John 6:63, “The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words I have spoken to you are spirit and they are life.” God’s word is living & active (Hebrews 4:12) and like fire (Jeremiah 23:29).

Acts 10:44:

While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit came on all who heard the message.”

Paul said in Galatians 1:11-12, “I want you to know, brothers, that the gospel I preached is not something that man made up. I did not receive it from any man, nor was I taught it; rather, I received it by revelation from Jesus Christ.”

I did not have the privilege of having a mentor to teach me about how to minister in ‘signs & wonders’. The Holy Spirit taught me how to work with Him in the Spirit of Oneness as depicted in John 14:11, Jesus said, “Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the miracles themselves.”

Signs and wonders follow the preaching of the WORD.

Mark 16:20

Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it.

1 Corinthians 2:4-5

Paul said, “My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power, so that your faith might not rest on men’s wisdom, but on God’s power.”

Romans 15:18-19

He also said, “I will not venture to speak of anything except what Christ has accomplished through me in leading the Gentiles to obey God by what I have said and done-by the power of signs and miracles, through the power of the Spirit. So from Jerusalem all the way around to Illyricum, I have fully proclaimed the gospel of Christ.”

1 Corinthians 4:20

“For the kingdom of God is not a matter of talk but of power.”

Introduction of AOF Global Fire Ministries

Hence, I must confess with humility that the way I minister can be very offensive and controversial to some ministers of God based on Prophetic Acts, like the ways Jesus made some mud and put it on the eyes of the blind man to open his eyes as depicted in John 9:11.

Prophetic acts are physical acts that demonstrate a spiritual reality. They are spiritual significance because they are done in faith in response to a specific instruction or word from God. God honours what He has prompted me to say and do. More insights of the prophetic acts are written in ‘The Arsenal of Fire’ in page 96.

My book, ‘The Arsenal of Fire’ is about my walk and ministry which meet the standard of the Scriptures. It is a biblical exposition on my walk with the Lord and provided a spiritual and scriptural context for my ministry. 

To God be the honour, power and glory!

Will appreciate it greatly if you could read my book and advise me if my ministry, which is based on the scriptural context quoted in my book, is not in accordance with the Bible and I'll improve it. Thanks for your love and encouragement.
