The Spirit of Joy A Must Have For Every Believer


Welcome to today’s message.   I see this week delivering the ordained blessing to you In the precious name of Jesus.

. Jesus says in Jn. 6:63; It is the spirit that quickeneth……The words that I speak to you are Spirit and life. May the spirit of the word enter you to produce your desired change as you read this piece. May the testimonies of the saints herein act to you as a divine catalyst to release your own desired testimony. Peace to you!

God hath enacted a covenant that guarantees all round fruitfulness with the saints (those who have given their life to Jesus and following His ways). God spoke about this in Ez. 34:24-27.

 Christ has met all the requirements for the ratification of this covenant. Therefore this covenant is in force. Yet every believer needs the spirit of joy at work in the heart to be able to experience this covenant in operations.

JOY: ACCESS TO REVELATION
The bible records in Is. 61:3 (the last statement) that every believer is to be called a tree of righteousness. Read Is 61:13.  Bearing fruits glorifies God, but bearing great fruits at their own season exalts Him more. Remember what Jesus rightly says; Read Jn. 15:5. That is to show you what manner of fruits you ought to bear as a believer; glorious fruits that will provoke attraction because it is the branch that holds the fruits. Your life becomes an expression of the goodness of divinity. You reflect and exhibit the glory of the roots. Revelations of the Scriptures in your spirit given by the Holy Ghost in which you walk is the life water and power that provokes your fruitfulness. But it’s amazing. The scripture says; Read Isaiah 12:3 Without joy, you have no access to revelations. This is the necessity of joyfulness which I think you need to foremost understand to help you make a decision. Revelations is the cause for kingdom fruitfulness.

JOY; POWER FOR FRUITFULNESS
Read Joel 1:10-12. May this never be your portion. But can you imagine? Despite the fact that these people are covenant children to whom the promises of God hath been given. They are still experiencing all this frustration, just because of one thing; their joy is withered off. Joyfulness is what satan takes away from the heart of a man that gives him the power to cause havoc.  Don’t allow it! Therefore joyfulness in God is a basic condition to be met for the covenant of God to have effect in your life. You must have come to understand that the service you render to Good without joyfulness is unacceptable (Deut. 28:47-48). Truly the offerings and tithes that you give to God without gladness of heart is not received by the Spirit (2 Cor. 9:7). So satan your adversary will do all he can to grieve you and hold you down with the spirit of sorrow and depression of heart are not emotional and psychological disorders as so called. They are demonic bonds to unfruitfulness. The end of sorrow in a life is the beginning of divine restoration. I pray for you that as you read this piece, the root of sorrow and depression. Understand therefore that sorrow and depression of heart are not emotional and psychological disorders as so called. They are demonic bonds to unfruitfulness. The end of sorrow in a life is the beginning of divine restoration. I pray for you that as you read this piece, the root of sorrow and depression tormenting your heart be uprooted. I pray that the yoke of grief and unfruitfulness lose its grip over you this day in the name of Jesus.

JOY: FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT
Joy means the effervescence of the spirit man. It means the uncontrollable bubbling and excitement of the soul. Joy means an uncontrolled delight welling up from within. Just like sorrow, grief and depression of the heart are products of demonic spirit oppression; joy of the heart is a function of the Holy Spirit at work within the inner man of a believer. This is why Paul lists this virtue of joy as part of the fruit of the spirit in Gal. 5:22. Paul constantly experiences this grace and refers to it as joy unspeakable (uncontrollable), full of glory (1 Pet. 1:8). It causes a constant rejoicing and bubbling inside even when things are wrong around you. When your spirit bubbles up. Everything wrong around you turns out right. But when you remain gloomy, things collapse the more. Oh, how you need this virtue! This is one of the ministries of the Holy Ghost in the believer. Read Isaiah. 61:2-3. I pray for the restoration of the spirit of joy in your soul this day. For every negative issue of your life, receive God’s help; for confusion, receive divine portions (Is. 61:7). I pray that as the oil of joy and garment of praise comes over you, you will begin to spring forth with great fruits. Hannah was fruitless, and her unfruitfulness was established because she was a woman of sorrowful spirit (1 Sam. 1:15) and she lived her life in bitterness of soul (1 Sam 1: 15) and she lived her life in bitterness of soul (1 Sam 1:10). This is despite her prayer life and fasting life perhaps. But immediately she dropped the garment of sorrow and her countenance was no longer sad because her heart became fixed onto the LORD, the LORD remembered her  and gave her a new song; Read 1 Sam.2:5. I see every sorrowful sound out of your heart turning to songs of testimonies before the end of this year, in Jesus mighty name.
