Prayer: Ocholi
Lord help us bear the light afflictions which is for a season, and help us see the Glory that shall be revealed in us. 2 Corinthians  4:15-17.

The Message: Pastor Chingtok
Rom 8:1-11
There are two dimensions of operations of the spirit of God towards a believer; 
the spirit within  and the spirit upon
The spirit within comes to direct you and to quicken your mortal bodies. The spirit upon is an empowerment for service.

Light does not bring truth, it reveals truth. Reading scriptures outside the revelation of the spirit of Truth is darkness. Faith is not the denial of fact, and the first principle of activating faith is acknowledging the one that has died (the substitutionary work of Christ). Confession comes later. In understanding the scriptures, you must know that certain truths precede other truth. Void words is a word without the power of accomplishment (Isaiah 55:10-11). It is revelation that gives potency to your confession.

The word of God in the mouth of a believer is as power full as if God said it. Because it is not who spoke it, but what was spoken.
An understanding that the entire bible is complete and balanced, makes that you are simple and still guarded against manipulation.
Psalm 2:1-12
The entire strategy of the rulers of the earth is in two strategies.
1. Let us break their bands asunder,
2. and cast away their cords from us.

It is a declaration of their independence from the king of kings. Because the rulership of God is with a restrain.  In the midst of everything the rulership of God still stands. It is incontestable. The entire judgment of God is on those that break eternal boundaries.
1Corinthians 2:6-16
God has an inheritance in you, and it takes an awakening and the enlightenment of your eyes to know. We have this treasure hid in earthen vessels that the excellency be of God and not of us. (2Corinthians 4:7). If you don’t understand the deposit of God in you, you will not rise to beat the limit of sin. 

The knowledge of the inheritance of God in you separates you from certain things. It is the deposit of the spirit. This is what births your concentration. God is in a hot pursuit after you. You are very important. The Holyspirit is our supply of life and that is what it means to be born again. The spirit supplies our desires and we can pursue the kingdom issues.

The technology that preserved Jonah for three days in the belly of the fish, is the same technology that kept Jesus in the belly of the earth for three days. The Christ is the operation of the anointing. Order is created by God and we have order in heaven.
The glory and the reward of heaven is government.

Quarry site, Tuesday 11th of February

The service began with the promise of a revelation of the word of God as hearts where aligned to be filled once again with truth for the maturity of the saints.

The reading of the book of Romans continued, taking a look at chapter 4:11-25 to create basis about righteousness that was imputed and not earned. Pastor Chingtok Ishaku said that God declared us righteous by the righteousness of Christ Jesus. In order words, Christ died for our sins and was raised for our justification. As such, we should come to the understanding that as Christ died, we died with Him and we rose as He did.

The text was captured from Romans 5 and 6. Pastor Chingtok discussed on the importance of being fully persuaded about the things God has said. Full persuasion comes with the death of the flesh (our flesh being our efforts, our reasoning, and all other activities that exhibit self) to believing totally in Gods ability to do that which He has said concerning us. Abraham, who is said to be the father of faith, took 25 years to be fully persuaded about the promise of God concerning him. Most times, our abilities constrain us from receiving the word of God, because when God is the one working, you will have nothing to boast about at the end of the day. God does not give us grace that is just enough but He gives us grace that is super abundant and sufficient grace works through righteousness to give eternal life through Jesus Christ.

In summary, we were once slaves to sin and righteousness had no right over us, but now that we are slave to righteousness, sin has no right over us. Our present state of righteousness makes it difficult for us to yield ourselves to sin. If we find ourselves sinning, it is because we permitted it. Our new nature is righteousness and it was IMPUTED.
