(Series: I AM SPIRIT)
Welcome to today’s class, thank you for joining the class once again. This is the Elapino Bible social networking app, and this is the LifeClass platform. We have been looking at the series which we just started, very fresh, in the new year. I am Spirit. I am Spirit.
In the last class, we looked at that topic, spirit begets spirits. There was a scripture I forgot to share in that last class. Let’s look at it very quickly. It just exactly paints to you what we’re talking about. Remember we’ve been hovering around Gen 2:7, Job 32:8 and Ezekiel 37:9-10
That scripture is in Psalms 2:7. It’s interesting. You see God is spirit , according to Jesus Christ in John 4:24. The Bible says He has Heather into you His Breath of life. We checked the root word for SPIRIT in Job 32:8 and it’s the same with the words interpreted WIND and BREATHE in Ezekiel 37:9
Now, in Psalms 2:7, Bible says:
 I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.
This scripture refers to Jesus Christ, but He talks to us also. Can you confirm that you are his. If not, then THIS DAY is He begetting you in Jesus Name. You may even be born again already, but Really , this scripture means, the day you come to that consciousness that He is your father, is the day He has birthed you. You could be born again and you’re not yet talking in this consciousness that His spirit birthed yours. You should be conscious of this every time.
“Thou art my son, this day have I begotten you.”
SPIRIT BEGETS SPIRITS – That was the last class. As we’re rounding off last class, I tried to outline what our responses should be after understanding this reality. What should be our action points after acknowledging the fact that His spirit begets your spirit.
There’s a difference between the spirit of God and that of man. God’s spirit is the holy spirit. Man’s spirit is the one that was breathed into him when he was created in Gen 2:7 that made him a living soul. Now when God’s spirit intertwines with man’s spirit, which happens at new birth, man becomes a new creature. Old things pass away, ceases to exist, and you become a new being, because the Holy Spirit has intertwined with your human spirit.
As we tried to find off the last class, we asked, what should be your action points, your responses to this reality. We listed a few points and promised to look into the scripture to explain them better.
1. Be saved
2. Be grateful, be thankful, because you’re living a life whose script has been written. God has begotten you and is assuring you of possessing his own very abilities. Bible says we can do all things through Christ that strengthens us. He said in Ephesians 3:20:
Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, ACCORDING to the power that worketh in us,
The according there means, SPIRIT BEGETS SPIRITS, His power is out
Qpower, his Holiness however should be our holiness, because righteousness, is certainly our righteousness too. So, it’s a replica of life and abilities from Him to you.
3. Be conscious
4. Be cautious
5. Be intentional
6. Coming alive
Ephesians 5:1-2 will help us to understand these action points.
Our Topic for today is:
ACTIVATE YOUR SPIRIT.
Activating your spirit comes by being saved, thankful and grateful, conscious, cautious, intentional and coming alive. That’s when you understand that Spirit begets spirit. Let’s go through that scripture in Ephesians 5. I just live the scriptures. Whenever it’s time to go through the scriptures, I’m excited. I will be reading two versions together, in parallel – the KJV and The Living Bible, so we get better grasps of the lessons there.
We will be reading verse by verse and when we locate any verse that matches any of our responses listed above, I’ll draw our attention to it.
KJV:. Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children;
TLB: Follow God’s example in everything you do just as a much loved child imitates his father.
You see, I’m talking about an exemplary life here. You don’t have a separate identity. You don’t need to define yourself differently from God’s definition for you. By the breath of God into you in Gen 2:7, you inherit all of God. We’re driving that consciousness further home in their beginning asses of the series.
Be ye followers of God as dear children.
It tells you that you don’t have a separate life to live apart from that which God has designed you to live. All you need to do is to follow, and live your life as an appendage of His life. Live your life as an offshoot and example of His life,because you already have a definition (a spirit) that is an example of his spirit. Hence, He says
Follow God’s example in everything you do just as a much loved child imitates his father.
You’re a much loved child! Animals do not carry God’s spirit, they are not much loved. The Bible did not record that God breathed into animals when he created them, but he stated expressly that He breathed his own spirit into us! So you’re to follow him. That’s your default nature. To do otherwise is to limit yourself and operate below his expectation for you.
TLB:. Be full of love for others, following the example of Christ who loved you and gave himself to God as a sacrifice to take away your sins. And God was pleased, for Christ’s love for you was like sweet perfume to him.
KJV:. And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling savour.
Now, because you’re an example of His life, Christ being the only begotten son of God, have Himself for you.
KJV:. But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints;
TLB: Let there be no sex sin, impurity or greed among you. Let no one be able to accuse you of any such things.
As an example of His, God doesn’t behold sin. As a follower of his, you don’t find sin in his ways, so you follow. Hallelujah.
KJV:. Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.
TLB:. Dirty stories, foul talk, and coarse jokes—these are not for you. Instead, remind each other of God’s goodness, and be thankful.
This one confirms our 4th action point that says be thankful and grateful. He warns against foolish talking or vain jesting, dirty stories, foul talks, etc. These are not for you. Rather than waste your time cracking meaningless jokes, engage in thanks giving and showing gratitude. Be thankful always. Avoid things that do not impress the holy spirit, however soothing they look to your flesh. Remember your spirit and you’re to please the flesh first.
Your nature is not a noisy one. “Be still and know that I am God – Ps 46:10”. Your nature is not a wanton or rough nature, it’s a calm one. If you’re in doubt about how to respond at any circumstance, in any matter, pls find out what God would have you do in such a situation. If you’re always in the habit of checking in Him, very soon he will also form the habit of leading you on such.
KJV:. Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.
That’s it! Spirit begets spirit. Remember Psalm 2:7 says
I will declare the decree. The Lord has said unto me. Thou art my son, today have I begotten you.
If you come to this consciousness, it means from today, you enter into that arrangement that spirit begets spirit. Today, I became your father. Even where you are already saved, without this consciousness, a few things may not still work as they should, with you.
KJV:. For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:
TLB:. For though once your heart was full of darkness, now it is full of light from the Lord, and your behavior should show it!
Again, God is light, so you have to walk as children of light. Because who He is, is Who we are. Bible says, as He is, so are we in this world – 1 John 4:17
Let’s continue this in the next class.
Please note that none of these will manifest in your life if you do not accept him as your Lord and Saviour. You’ll not be able to activate your spirit with these responses , if you do not have Jesus as your Lord and saviour.
And in case you want to come back to Jesus, this time is also for you. In Psalms 2:7, His word says “Thou art my son, this day have I begotten you. If you want this to be your word, then let’s pray together.
Say Lord Jesus, I come to you today. I’m ready to be your child, forsake my sins and repent of them. I accept you as my Lord and saviour. From today, let me be your child. From today, beget me. Be my father, my Lord and Saviour. Writey name in your book of Life. Say thank you Jesus. Amen.
Hallelujah! We meet again in the next class, By God’s grace.
