BUILDING CAPACITY TO END WELL IN LIFE!!!
-Pastor Victor Abugo Ministries Int’l
❖INTRODUCTION:—Christianity is Having a Personal experience with the Living God. It is having a personal encounter, a Visitation with the God of Heaven!
A Visitation Is the appearance of a divine or supernatural being.
❖As the Lord Liveth, before this year is over, My God will appear to you for a Visitation!—And one of the hall mark of a visitation is for our change of story!
Abraham was minding his business seating under a tree in Genesis. 18:1-14!!!—And suddenly, 3-Unknown Men appeared that Changed their story.
❖AS THE LORD LIVETH,-Tonight, Someone story is changing dramatically tonight!—YOU WILL BE TRULY VISITED BEFIRE THIS YEAR IS OVER.
❖In the Words of Gods Servant-My Spiritual Father—Bishop Oyedepo he said:—It doesn’t have to be spectacular to be an encounter or a Visitation, so an angel doesn’t have to appear with a flashing light.—NO, NO
➢But just Jesus appearing to you by His Word, and Giving you direction for life.—
➢In 1Samuel. 3:21—And the Lord appeared again in Shiloh: for the Lord revealed himself to Samuel in Shiloh by the word of the Lord.
❖Again in Genesis. 21:1-2:—And the Lord visited Sarah as he had said, and the Lord did unto Sarah as he had spoken. For Sarah conceived, and bare Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time of which God had spoken to him.
“The Lord sent a word into Jacob, and it hath lighted upon Israel—Isaiah 9:8.
Again in 2 Corinthians 3:18—But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.
❖That is God appearing, and Speaking to you, through His Word or in person, giving you some directions and instructions on the next steps to take.
MY GOD WILL APPEAR TO YOU BEFOR THIS MONTH IS OVER!
Now lift up your Hands to your Heavenly Father and ask Him by His mercy and grace, to appear to me and your Family with His visitation before this year is over, that will bring about my own change of story in this year of Greater-Light—Genesis. 18:1/Exodus. 3:2.
❖THE WORD:—We are going to be looking at:—BUILDING CAPACITY TO END WELL IN LIFE!—Subtitled:—THE ROLE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT & PRAYING IN TONGUES!!!
HEAR THIS:—Remove the hand of God in a man’s life, remove the Grace and the Mercy of God of our lives, Mankind is doom, we becomes nobody.
Apostle Paul Speaking In Romans 9:15-16
Saying “And He said to Moses I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion. So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy.
❖PLEASE NOTE—When God’s Hand of Grace and mercy is off and removed in a mans life, our nakedness and vulnerability will be showed to the whole world.—Go and ASK KING SAUL—
❖God speaking to King David through his Prophet In 1Chronicles. 17:13—“I will be his father, and he shall be my son: and I will not take my mercy away from him, as I took it from him that was before thee:-
So the moment God took and removed His Mercy away from King Saul, he became a dead man.
➢In other Words—Mercy is God not punishing us of the sins we deserve, and Grace is God blessing us despite the fact that we do not deserve it.
But the Scriptures says In Hebrews 4:16—Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
IN AMPC—Let us then fearlessly and confidently and boldly draw near to the throne of grace (the throne of God’s unmerited favor to us sinners), that we may receive mercy [for our failures] and find grace to help in good time for every need [appropriate help and well-timed help, coming just when we need it].
❖So it is at the Prayer Alter, we generates the Capacity to journey and to end well in life.
AND THAT IS WHY WE NEED PRAY; WE CALL ON HIM IN PRAYER TO SHOW US MERCY.
THAT IS WHY WE NEED TO BUILD CAPACITY THROUGH PRAYER!!
➢Because Prayer Knows No boundaries, Prayer knows no limit.—In Psalm 65:2—O thou that hearest prayer, unto thee shall all flesh come.
So as we approach the end of this great year-2021, and Prepares to Cross-Over into 2022, you need Capacity through to arrived there.
❖THE MAIN MESSAGE—HEAR THIS:—One of the Core mission of the Holy Spirit is that:—He empowers us the believer at the Prayer altar and intercedes for us to produce results—Romans. 8:26-27/Jude: 20.
And this implies not that He is doing it for us, but with us, not without our participation. No, we involve Him by praying in the Spirit, which is actually allowing Him to pray through us.
So one of the ways we fellowship with the Holy Spirit is through Praying in tongues which is the language of the Holy Spirit.
So by this method, the Holy Spirit helps you pray according to the Will of God. As He was sent to indwell in our human spirit—
❖Romans. 8:26-Says—Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
❖As we spend time praying in the Spirit, He helps us to hover, brood over our dreams, goals, and destiny our health, giving life to any lifeless situations. Just like the hen brood over the egg to produce life in it.
YOU SEE:—The Holy Spirit is the power source of the Godhead (see Acts 1 8, Hebrews. 10: 38, Luke 4: 14, 18).
And is the same Holy Spirit with His RESURRECTION POWER lives inside us today, So, we have access to the same Power TODAY as Jesus did while He was on the earth.
He is the power behind creation, He is the one who supplies power to God’s will, He is the one who breathes God’s life into people, bringing physical and spiritual life.
In Genesis 1:1-3—In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
❖The word “without form” means a desolation; to lie waste; a formless, lifeless mass, that is no order, no life. Then something happen:
“But the Holy Spirit was moving mightily” And the word MOVING in literally Hebrew simply means “to brood over”, Amplify version says: hovering, brooding over”
So the Holy Spirit was “birthing something, “He was bringing forth life”. So what the Holy Spirit was doing in Genesis when HE brought forth or gave birth to the earth and the world is exactly what HE wants to do through our prayers.
❖He wants to go forth and hover around our life, our families, our business, our carriers releasing His awesome power to birth our desire, and He wants to birth them through us.
AGAIN In Hebrews 11: 11, Deuteronomy 32: 10-18–Sarah receives dunamis…. Abraham and Sarah have no ability at this point to produce life, they were sterile, life less. Until the Lord hovered over them. The Holy Spirit brooded over Abraham and Sarah, releasing His life and power, giving them the ability to conceive!
AGAIN—-Luke. 1: 34-35—The word “Overshadow in Greek is “episkaizo” which means to cast a shade upon; it means to envelope in a haze of brilliancy; to invest with supernatural influence.
So spiritual travail is releasing the creative power or energy of the Holy Spirit into a situation to produce, create or give birth to something” and that is travailing intercession.�
❖In Romans 8: 26:—This verse talks about our helper, the Holy Spirit, without any doubt the greatest single key to successful intercession is learning to cooperate with the Holy Spirit, allowing him to be all He was sent to be in us.
This passage says that the Holy Spirit wants to help us in our weakness, now the word “Weakness” in Greek is “Asthneia” which means “without strength or inability to produce results”
❖Have you ever felt an inability in your prayer life to produce results? And the reason is that we don’t always know how to “pray as we should” and that is why we need an helper.
And the word “helpeth” in Greek is “sunantilambanomai” which is a compound word made up of three words:
Sun—means “together with”
Lambano –means “to take hold of”
And when you put the words together it literally means “Take hold of together with against”
AND HE DOES THAT WHEN WE YIELD OURSELVES PRAYING IN THE SPIRIT..
❖And Praying in the spirit is perhaps the greatest examples of when His strength is made complete in our weakness, so when we realize our weakness, our inability to produce results, it causes us to look to Him for help.
❖So when you are experiencing an inability to get results, the Holy Spirit not only wants to direct our prayers precisely, but HE wants to take hold of the situation together with us, adding his strength to ours. Having you heard (Zechariah. 4: 6)
And this implies not that He is doing it for us, but with us, not without our participation. No, we involve Him by praying in the Spirit, which is actually allowing Him to pray through us.
➢As we spend time praying in the Spirit, He helps us to hover, brood over our dreams, goals, and destiny our health, giving life to any lifeless situations. Just like the hen brood over the egg to produce life in it.�
➢MEN and BRETHREN:—Praying in the Spirit is buying the future, watering the seeds of your tomorrow. Prayer can change the future and re-write your history
❖When you pray in tongues more often, the Holy Spirit will give access to know in the spirit on what the WILL of God is in those matters above.
➢HE WILL START OPENING THE BOOK OF YOUR DESTINY, RELEASING CREATIVE IDEAS, HE WILL START REVEALING HIDDEN SECRETS FOR YOUR LIFE.
❖NOW HEAR THIS:—In 1 Corinthians12:28—-The Bible says, that “And God hath set some in the Church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues.
➢NOW In this verse of Scripture, we Have “Eight Personal Operations of God for His Body, and this is different from the 9-Manifestation Gifts of the Spirit mentioned earlier in Verses 7-10.
❖I am not going to go over them one by on because of our time, but, Last Month November we had a Teaching Series of them, you can Visit our Facebook Account Page-Victor Abugo Ministries or the YouTube Page—Apostle Victor Abugo to listen to them ,”
➢NOW:—Back to our text, 1 CORINTHIANS. 12:28 the eight operations there is called “diversities of tongues” which tell us that there are different supernatural flows or manifestations of tongues. And the word diversities means different flows.
➢ So we have four basic diversities of tongues outlined in the Word:-
1). Tongues for personal edification—1 Corinthians 14:4:—This is the supernatural language the Holy Spirit prays through us that we can use to pray hour after hour as we desire. It accompanies the baptism in the Holy Spirit.
2). Tongues for deep intercessional groaning—Romans. 8:26:—This diversification of tongues empowers the believers to stand in the gap for their own lives, their families, their church, their city, their nation, etc. God may also call on them to intercede for someone or for some situation that is totally unknown to you.
3). Tongues for interpretation—1 Corinthians 14:5:—This manifestation of tongues is normally presented in a public assembly, accompanied by interpretation by the same or another person.
4). Then finally, we have Tongues as a sign to the unbeliever—1 Corinthians14:22:—This is the phenomenon that took place on the Day of Pentecost (Acts 2:4-11).
➢BUT HEAR THIS:—And the last two usually occurs in a public assembly, while the first called Tongues for personal edification is for You personally,
Because it builds and edify each individual and qualifies us into our callings.
➢ALSO:—And For you as a believer to know What God has separated and called you to do, What is your grace, your measure-Romans 12:3.
❖So you need Divine Help To Find Your Place, Where do you fit in in these Eight operations of God?.
➢Where do you fit in the plan of redemption laid out before the foundation of the world, hidden in a mystery in the heart of God?
➢So for you to know what whether:—You called to be an apostle, prophet, teacher, evangelist, or pastor? As a Helper or administer, ………Or are you called to make millions to finance the Gospel?
❖So One of the reason God gave us this diversities of tongues —and especially tongues tor Personal edification, is to help us discover His perfect plan for our lives.
AND EVERY BELIEVER NEED TONGUES FOR PERSONAL EDIFICATION!!!—To Locate, discover their place, where they belong to in the plan and Purposes of God for their lives.
➢This is the prayer language each of us receives when we are filled with the Holy Ghost. It is used by God to transfer divine secrets and mysteries from His Spirit to ours.—Acts 2:4/Acts 4:31/Acts 10:44-46/Acts 19:6
❖Tongues for personal edification is the most basic foundational operation of God, because it is designed by God to do for you what no preacher or teacher can do.
❖So My Friend, when you pray a lot and more in the spirit for your personal edification—Called the UNKNOWN TONGUES, the Holy Spirit goes forth to prepare your future ahead of time, because the Supernatural is ahead of the Natural.—John 16:13
❖When you pray in enough tongue every day, He will start preparing your destiny ahead, your purpose is being declare every single day as you pray.
➢His will for your business, for your career, and in your creative endeavors, He will release the Wisdom to your mind, for you to excel in all that you do, including your Academics.
➢So when you can engaged in the Unknown tongues for your Personal Edification—He gives you—ACCESS TO KNOW IN THE NATURAL-on what the will and plan of God is per time.
Because you are Speaking and communicating ONLY WITH GOD ALONE, and He alone knows things you wouldn’t know in the natural.
➢SO MY FRIENDS, IF I WERE YOU, ALL THROUGH THIS MONTH, I WILL GIVE HIM THE TIME AND YIELD TO YOUR TEACHER CALLED THE HOLY GHOST ON A DAILY BASIS.
❖And don’t forget:-When you are praying in tongues, you bring the Future into the NOW, by praying in tongues every day:-
➢And for all Parents here, You should Pray more in the Spirit over your Children, as you do so, you are Praying into being the Future of those Children.
❖HOW MANY OF YOU WANT TO KNOW YOUR FUTURE….THEN SPEND TIME PRAYING IN TONGUES.
