Prophetic Focus - February 2014 - Covet earnestly the best Gifts - I Cor. 12:31


Exceeding Grace greetings in the name of Jesus Christ
I have no doubt that the harvest of testimonies from the recently concluded annual prayer and fasting of the church is still on and shall continue throughout this year in Jesus’ name.
We discover from scriptures that every great story in the kingdom is traceable to some spiritual gifts at work in men. – 2 Cor. 4:7, Jhn. 3:27, 1Cor. 15:10
It is the spiritual gifts at work in us that makes room for us in life. – Prov. 18:16
But what are spiritual gifts?
These include :
  • THE NINE (9) GIFTS of the Holy Spirit – 1Cor. 127-10
  • THE SEVEN (7) SPIRITS of God that was upon Christ - Isa. 11:1-3, Jhn. 14:12
  • Proven Spiritual Gifts that we partake of from anointed vessels or places – Rom. 1:11, 2Tim. 1:6-7, 1Tim 4:14, Deut 34:9, 1 Sam 10:9-12, 2 Cor. 8:1-5,7
Some other special ministries of the Holy Spirit include :
  • The Anointing which empowers us for supernatural breakthroughs – Isa. 61:1-7, Isa. 45:1-13
  • The Spirit of Faith empowers us for conquest – Heb. 11:1-33, Eph. 6:16, 2 Cor. 4:13, 1 Cor. 12:9
  • The Spirit of Vision and Revelations empowers us for inexplainable triumph – Jhn. 16:12-14, Joel 2:1-11, 28-31, Prov. 29:18, Isa. 48:21
  • The Spirit of Love empowers us for pace settings exploits. – 1 Cor. 2:9, Psa. 112:1-3, 1 Sam. 16:21-22, 1kgs. 3:3-13,, 4:29-34, 10:4-9
  • The Spirit of Holiness empowers us access to divine secrets – Psa. 25:14, Job 1:1-3,, 29:4
  • The Spirit of Might empowers us for health and vitality – Jhn. 4:31-34, jugd. 16:18
  • The Spirit of Sound Mind empowers us for enthronement – 2 Tim. 1:6-7, Prov. 8:15-16, Dan. 5:11and many more…
Remember, Christ once said : “…he that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he also; and greater works than these shall he do…”Jhn. 14:12
However, to do what Christ did :
  • We must posses what He possessed – Acts 4:13
  • Christ possessed the Holy Spirit without measures – Jhn. 3:34
  • Christ possessed the 7 Spirits of God – Rev. 3:1, Rev. 5:6
  • The 7 Spirits of God will make saviours out of believers – Obad. 21
We can therefore conclude that spiritual gifts constitute the treasures in our earthen vessels which define our ultimate fulfillment of destiny – 2 Cor. 4:7, Prov. 18:16
And just as the body without the spirit is dead, a believer without some spiritual gifts at work in him, is sure to be frustrated and grounded – James 2:26, Jhn. 6:63
This is because it is spiritual gifts that empower God’s plans and purpose for our lives to be established. That is why we are called to covet the best of spiritual gifts – Rom. 1:11, 1 Cor. 12:31
Therefore the prophetic focus for the month of February 2014 is :
