True Spiritual Enlightenment 3

Get Audio Version Here:

1 Corinthians 12:3-6 (NKJV)
…no one can say that Jesus is Lord except by the Holy Spirit.
There are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. There are differences of ministries, but the same Lord. And there are diversities of activities, but it is the same God who works all in all.

Terkimbi attended a conference where many people received miracles and were imparted with various spiritual gifts, but he could not receive anything from that conference because he was not comfortable with the way the ministers ministered. He wasn’t comfortable with the way people were falling under the anointing, and laughing under the anointing. This closed heartedness was the reason Terkimbi did not receive some much needed spiritual gifts.

It is ignorance concerning spiritual things that would make a believer expect all ministries and ministers to have the same manifestation when the Bible clearly says there are diversities of results/operations, but it is the same Lord.

Many people have deprived themselves of the blessing that would have been manifested in their lives because they are closed hearted to other ministers with manifestations of the Spirit that they are not used to.

There are things we are to look out for in every ministry and minister in order to know if they are of God. But these things mostly bother on fruits rather than [manifestations or diversities of] gifts. Every true minister will acknowledge and exalt the Lordship of Christ. Professing the Lordship of Christ goes much beyond merely saying the words. It is a confession that controls the way we live and things we do. Any man who has confessed Christ as Lord cannot brazenly continue in iniquity. He would be submitted to the authority of Christ and this submission can be discerned by the discerning believer.

Go into today remembering that there are diversities of ministries in the kingdom. Do not be closed hearted to a ministry because you see unfamiliar results. But test all spirits to be sure you are not snared.
—Abraham Damilola Arigi
