TREM Devotional 23 October 2021 Daily Devotional By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – You Are A Spirit Being
TOPIC: You Are A Spirit Being
“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over…” Genesis 1:26 KJV
Notice the law of first mention and how Adam was made to function and dominate his world. Adam was able to name the animals. How did he do it? He was made like God in character and in nature. He was also made to function like God. He was made a spirit and then God gave him an assignment on earth.
In John chapter 3, Nicodemus asked Jesus, “how can I be born again? I am already old. Do I go into my mother’s womb again?” But Jesus replied: “…Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God” (John 3:5 KJV).
So, it’s not witches and wizards that are spirits. You are a spirit. I remember Archbishop Bishop Idahosa of the blessed memory. One day, witches decided that they were going to hold a world conference in Benin. Archbishop declared that the meeting would not hold as long as he was there. He spoke as the oracle of God. When the issue was heating up in the press, the Archbishop called for a debate with the chief of the witches in the town. The leader accepted and they met on a live television program.
That day, everyone stayed glued to the television to know what would happen. At the meeting, Archbishop Benson Idahosa said, “before we start the debate, I want to ask you: Are you a witch?” The leader said, “why are you asking me? We have come for a debate.” Archbishop responded saying, “because I am here to kill you. My bible says, “suffer not a witch to live.” A dread came upon the leader who responded saying, “I am not a witch.” So, Archbishop declared the debate over. The witch’s conference never held because somebody dared to stand for God. What you are afraid of is afraid of you! You are a spirit and made of a higher order than any other false spirits.
