Developing An Unconquerable Spirit (Prosperous Spirit)

Prosperity in all earnest starts and ends with your spiritual prosperity (3 John 2). Here is my short homily on a prosperous spirit:


Why have a prosperous spirit!

A prosperous spirit may mean
a. A spirit that is strong that it controls all other facets of your being.
b. A blessing that overshadows you to cause you to prosper in all facets of your life.

The condition of our spirits has a bearing on the condition/quality of our total lives:

1. Proverbs 18:14 “The spirit of a man sustains his infirmity”(KJV), “the spirit of a man will be his support when he is ill”(BBE). A strong spirit chucks away sickness or makes you strong even through the sickness.

2. Proverbs 4:20-22 the word is medicine not only to the spirit to the body
Developing An Unconquerable Spirit (Prosperous Spirit)
Jesus Is Our Picture On A Prosperous Spirit:

1. He was a man of the house of God/COME TO CHURCH

a. He was taken to the House of God as a baby.

b. He remained there after the feast.

c. It was his “custom” to be in the house of God (Luke 4:16)

Church is a spiritual service station to avoid your car from breaking down!

David was glad to be invited to the house of God (Ps 122:1), one thing he desired of God to be in God’s house (Psalm 27:4), and those who are planted in God’s house shall flourish (Psalm 92:13-14)

2. He was powerful in the Word/READ THE WORD 

a. He was the incarnation of the Word himself(John 1:1)

b. He confounded the elders of Israel in the Word.

c. When the devil pushed him, he oozed the Word, like a sponge full of water (Matthew 4)

The word is God’s love letter to us and must be read as often as possible.

There is power in the Word

It is a seed(sperma) that transforms those that receive it.

Search the scriptures (John 5:39), scripture makes wise unto salvation, profitable, that the man of God may be perfect (2 Timothy 3:15-17), it is not of man, holy man spoke as they were moved by the Holy Ghost (2 Peter 1:20-21)

Get all the CDs, DVDs, Videos, and products from your church and others from outside.

3. He was a man of prayer/YOU MUST BE A PERSON OF PRAYER. Hebrews 5:7-8 

a. He prayed very early (Mark 1:35)

b. He prayed overnight (Luke 6:12-13)

c. he prayed for his disciples(John 17:9,20,Luke 22:31,32)

d.. he prayed at crucial moments (Luke 22:41-42)

e. he prayed for his tormentors (Luke 23:34)

f. Prayer was his last breath (Luke 23:46)

g. He liveth to make intercession for us(Hebrews 7:25)

I love you so much. May God give you a prosperous spirit

Apostle Pride Sibiya
