THE LIVING SPIRIT AND CHRIST
What do we mean by the living spirit? All demons bear the mark of their master the devil. All demons are also called devil. In Mark 16: 17, the Bible says, “…these signs shall follow them that belief, in my name, they shall cast out devils…” The same thing is true in Luke 10:17. Demons are called devils.
So the living spirits bear the mark of their Master, Jesus Christ, who is also the Word. In John 6: 63, Jesus Christ said; the word that I speak to you, they are spirit and they are life’. In other words, if you combine the two, i.e they are spirit they are life, they become the living spirits. The word that I speak’. And Jesus Christ Himself is the word. In John 1:1, the Bible says, in the beginning was the word, the word was with God, the word was God’. So Jesus is the word, and the word that Jesus speaks, they are living spirits.
According to Matthew 8:5-12 the word that Jesus Christ speaks goes to wherever He sends them and they do the same work He will do or could do if He were there himself. Remember the centurion who came to Jesus and said “my servant is sick, I want him healed.” Jesus said yes, I will come and heal him. But the centurion said, you don’t need to go. Send your word, send one of those living spirits, and my servant will be healed.
In Psalm 107: 20 the Bible says, He sent out His words and healed them and delivered them from their destruction So these living spirits will go wherever they are being sent and they will do whatever Jesus Himself could have done if He were physically present there. And they have names. For example Peace is one of them. In Mark 4: 39 and Matthew 8: 23-27, we discovered that PEACE is the name of the living spirit that stills the storms. As soon as Jesus said “Peace”, the living spirit jumped out and took control of the storm. And we discover that these living spirits can never they cannot be destroyed by the enemies, Matthew 24: 35.
Even the unbelievers have a saying that the word that you speak is like an egg. Once it hits the ground, it cannot be recovered. When you speak out, you may even say I am sorry, I apologise, I withdraw what I have said, but it cannot be withdrawn. Once you have spoken it, it is said. Once it is gone out, it is gone out and it cannot die.
In John 1:1-2, we discovered that Jesus was the begotten of the Father, He is part and parcel of the Father. In the beginning was the word, the word was with God, the word was God; part and parcel of the Father.
According to John 12:49, the words that Jesus spoke out, are the begotten of Jesus and therefore you could call them the grandchildren of God the Father. In other word, God spoke and Jesus came out. Jesus spoke and the living spirit came out. You could call this living spirit the begotten of Jesus and you could call them the grandchildren of God the Father.
This is why the word that is spoken by Jesus Christ is extremely powerful when you quote them. When you quote them you are actually summoning the living spirits into action and saying, “come around”, the same way that Jesus used them years ago.
That is why God expects only words of grace to come out of your mouth because you are now one of His children. You will now speak the words that are only worthy of God because once you have spoken them they are out there. They are ultimately going to relate back to us. Whenever you don’t even know what to say or you are faced with a problem, you are given an assignment you think is too difficult for you. Please never say ‘I can never do it’. If you that, you are creating problems for yourself. Instead, say like Paul said in Philippians 4: 13, “I can do all things through Christ,” I can do all things through the word. Romans 10: 8 made it clear that the ability to do anything, is based on the word of God that is within you, coming out of your mouth. When you speak the word of God out, you summon the living spirits to come to your assistance.
In II Corinthians 3: 5-6, the Bible says that our sufficiency is from God. Our ability to do everything, to be sufficient to every task is based on the word of God that is dwelling in us. They are from time to time believed in and spoken out. Many at times the enemy has come against us to say you have failed this time, you have over stepped your boundary. And you will quote the word and say “with God, nothing shall be impossible.” You will quote again and say, ‘My Father is the God of all flesh and there is nothing too hard for Him’. Speak it out. Even when doubt comes, swallow your doubt. Let the word come out. Speak out living spirits.
According to James 1: 22-25, you are not just to believe what you are hearing, but also be a doer of it. Each time you are acting on the word of God, you are allowing Christ to act through you. All those who have spoken the word of God out in faith, have summoned the Almighty God to their assistance, and they have never been disappointed.
In Genesis 22:7-13 Isaac, said “Daddy, I can see the wood, the fire and the knife; where is the lamb for the offering?” What did the father say? ‘God will provide!’ And by the he got to the mountain top, God had provided. Because he spoke it, the living spirit went ahead and provided the lamb for the offering?
In 1 Samuel 17: 46-51 David said to Goliath, “I am coming against you in the name of the Lord of Hosts, the Lord of the army of Israel that you have defiled.” He said, ‘this day, I am going to cut off your head’. When he was saying that, he had no cutlass, he had no sword, but before that day ended, he had cut off the head of Goliath. He said it and he acted it. When Goliath landed on the floor, he was already dead by the time he hit the floor. But David said “that is not where I said it will end, I said I’m going to lift off your head,” so he took the sword of Goliath, he had to carry it with two hands, because it was too heavy, and cut off the head of Goliath. He said it and the living word of God brought it to pass.
In Daniel 3: 16-26; Shedrach, Meshach, and Abednego said, “king, the God that we serve is able to deliver us. And He will deliver us. He will”. They did not know how He was going to do it, but they spoke it out. The living word saw to it that they were delivered out of the predicament.
There are enough of living words that are written in Deuteronomy 28: 1-13 and I know many of you do quote some of them:
‘I will be head only, I will never be tail
I will be above only, I will never be below
I will lend to nations, I will never borrow The enemy that comes against me one way shall flee before me seven ways.
I will be blessed in the city
I will be blessed in the field
I will be blessed when I am travelling
I will be blessed when I come home’ etc.
But there is one little secret, in fact many people have been quoting these words of God and nothing happened. There is a key, there is a pass-word that you must first of all use before you begin to summon the living spirits. When the babalawo chants incantations, what do you think he is He is summoning demons. “Demons, come and help, demons come and assist”. But before he begins to call the incantations, there is something he has to do. He will chew an alligator pepper and mix it with some charms before the incantation will have any effect.
What must we do before we summon the living spirits and they will come immediately to help? It is found in Deuteronomy 28: 1. God said, “if you will hearken diligently to the words I’m speaking to you, to observe and to do them”.
In other words, the one who can summon the living spirits and they will come into action immediately must be absolutely obedient to God. That is another word for holiness. If you would live a holy life, you will receive anything you ask of God. The Bible says if you are willing and you are obedient, you will eat the good of the land.
So my brothers, my sisters, even as we are concluding this section, you know as a year four students of the School of Disciples, that the most important thing in your life is holiness. If you can be holy, anything you want, just quote the Bible, say it is written, this is what will happen. It is written I will prosper and be in good health as my soul prospereth. Believe me honestly, as soon as you quote it, the living spirits concerned will come and make sure it happens. But if you are not holy, then you don’t have the divine key.
Talk to God now. Ask Him to make you pure so that the divine key can be yours.
