APRIL 2018 IMPARTATION SERVICE – 15TH APRIL 2018
ANCHOR SCRIPTURE(S): 2 TIMOTHY 1:5-7
MESSAGE TOPIC: FAITH AND IMPARTATION By: Dr. Paul Enenche
SERVICE OBJECTIVE: Understanding the spiritual transfers that can facilitate the operation of faith
Impartation is the transfer of spiritual virtue through the agency of the Spirit
THINGS TO NOTE:
1. Faith carries door-opening power
2. Faith is a spiritually transferable virtue (2Tim. 1:5)
3. Diverse spiritual transfers can facilitate the establishment of faith in the life of a person
SPIRITUAL TRANSFERS THAT FACILITATE FAITH:
3a. The transfer of the Spirit of faith (2Cor. 4:13; Gal. 5:5)
FEATURES OF THE SPIRIT OF FAITH:
i. The Spirit of faith helps us to believe God and His Word easily and effortlessly
The Spirit of faith helps you to believe the impossible and imagine the unthinakble
ii. The Spirit of faith helps us to declare what we believe audaciously and authoritatively
The Spirit of faith thinks the unthinkable, believes the incredible, declares the unspeakable and does the impossible
3b. The transfer of the heart of boldness (Acts 4:18, 31; Eph. 6:18-19)
WHAT THE HEART OF BOLDNESS OFFERS:
i. Boldness of heart by the Spirit helps us to dwell in a fear-eliminated zone
ii. Boldness of heart by the Spirit makes us to make the right moves despite the threat of the enemy
iii. Boldness of heart by the Spirit helps us to take faith actions without the consciousness of risk
Boldness is a byproduct of the Spirit
It is what is confronted that can be conquered!
Your future is notconfirmed without courage!
Action is the switch of power in the journey of faith; the person with boldness lives in the arena of action
3c. The transfer of the Spirit of wisdom and revelation (Eph. 1:16-19; Acts 20:32)
FEATURES OF THE SPIRIT OF WISDOM AND REVELATION:
i. The Spirit of wisdom and revelation opens our eyes to our privileges, rights and inheritance in God (Acts 20:32)
The knowledge of right imparts the might to embark on a fight!
The Spirit of revelation clarifies to you what is yours
Anytime the Lord drops a passage in your heart, don’t say ‘I have seen it before’, go there! There is something to see again.
ii. The Spirit of wisdom and revelation grants us access to the depths of light and insight from the Word of God (Rom. 10:17)
The Spirit of wisdom and revelation moves you from just hearing what the Bible says to seeing what the Bible says
iii. The Spirit of wisdom and revelation connects us to Scriptures that are relevant to our situations per time and also connects Scriptures to Scriptures (John 14:26; 1Cor. 2:13)
The realm of faith brings you to the point where you finally see what God is saying and it is in seeing it that faith explodes (Hab. 2:1)
3d. The transfer of the Spirit of meekness (Ps. 25:9; 1Cor. 4:21; Gal. 6:1; Jam. 1:21)
WHAT IS MEEKNESS?
i. Meekness is teachability
ii. Meekness is availability for instruction
iii. Meekness is a humble disposition to life
iv. Meekness is the assumption of ignorance; you assume you don’t know so you can know
FEATURES OF THE SPIRIT OF MEEKNESS:
i. The Spirit of meekness gives us access to direct instructions from God (Ps. 25:9)
The proof of insight is result
ii. The Spirit of meekness gives us the capacity to receive or to soak in insights from the Scripture (Jam. 1:21)
The hand that receives is the hand of meekness;
The hand that receives is the hand of meekness;
Trying to receive from the Word without meekness, is like a man whose hands are paralysed trying to receive something
iii. The Spirit of meekness gives us direct access to our inheritance in God (Ps. 37:11; Matt. 5:5; Heb. 6:12; Num. 12:3)
Meekness links you to faith and faith to your inheritance but meekness also has the capacity to link you directly to your inheritance
3e. The transfer of the Spirit of love (Gal. 5:6; 2Tim. 1:7; Rom. 15:30; 1Cor. 13:7)
THE IMPORTANCE OF THE SPIRIT OF LOVE IN THE JOURNEY OF FAITH:
i. The Spirit of love activates, potentiates and amplifies the working of faith (Gal. 5:6; 1Cor. 13:7; Mark 2:4-5)
A loving person will see more results from faith than a bitter person, a gossip, or a maliciously competitive and jealous person
Faith believes just like love believes, so love is united with faith (1Cor. 13:1)
Anybody that came to quarrel with you or draw you into bitterness came to dissipate the potency of your faith – resist it!
ii. The Spirit of love brings us to the frequency of Divine nature and character (1John 4:8; Mark 10:27; Luke 18:27)
Walking in love is walking in God and with God all things are possible (Mark 10:27; Luke 18:27)
iii. The Spirit of love releases supernatural strength for exploits (Songs. 8:6; Acts 14:20)
A bitter, malicious, unforgiving personality is a weak and depleted personality
Love gives strength and strength is key to exploits (Dan. 11:32b)
3f. The transfer of the Spirit or garment of joy (1Pet. 1:8; Isa. 61:1-3; Eph. 5:18-19; Isa. 12:3; 1Thess. 1:6; Ps. 106:12; Rom. 4:20; 2Chron. 20:22-23; Acts 16:25-26; 1John 5:4)
BENEFITS OF THE SPIRIT OR GARMENT OF JOY ON THE JOURNEY OF FAITH:
i. The Spirit of joy grants us access to the depths of the Word (Isa. 12:3; 1Thess. 1:6)
There can be no revelation in depression
ii. The Spirit of joy is proof of faith (Ps. 106:12; Rom. 4:20)
Joy is a product of faith and joy is a proof of faith
Being able to praise God when there is no reason to praise is proof of strong faith
‘Hypojoyemia’ – low level of joy in the blood
If the devil cannot steal your joy, he has not touched your faith
iii. The Spirit of joy is a tool for the defeat of the enemy (2Chron. 20:22-23; Acts 16:25-26; 1John 5:4)
KEYS TO IMPARTATION:
1. Be specific; know exactly what you want (2Kings 2:9)
2. Possess a sense of value – value for the virtue and value for vessel (2Kings 2:9)
A sense of value is the refusal to take the virtue or the vessel for granted
What you don’t value cannot profit you
3. Be desperate (2Kings 2:11-14; Matt. 11:12)
Desperation is the magnet of impartation
