Rightly Dividing

Rightly Dividing

In Genesis God breathed into Adam after creating him.
John 20:22 And when he had said this, 
he breathed on them, and saith unto them, 
Receive ye the Holy Ghost: 
When he had said this, he breathed on 
them, and said to them, "Receive the 
Holy Spirit!"
What is the significance of the second 
Why did they need to go to Jerusalem to 
wait to receive the Holy Spirit again, 
after Jesus had breathed into them?  


 The two scenarios are similar but not 
the same; in Genesis God created Adam 
first as a spirit being  Genesis 1:27 before 
giving him a material body Genesis 2:7. 
After forming man and placing His spirit 
in the formed body God breathed into 
his nostril to fuse the spirit and the 
material body into one. 
This was what enabled Adam to be 
able to live normally in the material 
world as enabled him to be the first 
hybrid creation that has a material 
body and is governed by his spirit. 
He was a novel idea. 
These include the angels and other 
supernatural beings that predated man.  
After the fall in Genesis 3. Man lost the 
essence of his spirituality. 
The Genesis 1:27 being died
(   So God created human beings in 
his own image. 
In the image of God he created them; 
male and female he created them.") 
What remained was the Genesis 2:7 
being. ( And the LORD God formed 
man of the dust of the ground and 
breathed into his nostrils the breath 
of life, and man became a living soul.)   
The man was spiritually dead but 
materially alive. 
When Jesus came we saw a change 
in Dynamics. 
Jesus and John the Baptist were born
full of the Holy Spirit.
 This means Jesus was spiritually alive, 
unlike most men. He didn't have the 
seed of Adam in him. 
He was the son of God through and 
through. The role of the woman was 
to give him the flesh that God gave 
Adam in Genesis. 
So Jesus was born full of the 
Holy Spirit and yet after His baptism, 
he received the Holy Spirit from above
 Can you see the order here? 
First, he had the Holy Spirit, and then 
He received the Holy Spirit.  
This is the pattern for the disciples too. 
After Jesus' resurrection, he breathed 
upon the disciples. 
They received the Holy Spirit at 
that time.  
And then on the day of Pentecost, 
there was the enduement. 
The final aspect of the teaching 
is how it relates to us believers. 
Unlike Jesus who was born full 
of the Holy Spirit and later received 
the Holy Spirit after Baptism. 
The moment we receive the word 
of salvation into our hearts by 
believing in the Lord Jesus, the 
moment we confess our salvation 
in Him we get filled with the 
Holy Spirit too. But for most people, 
they don't speak in tongues or 
demonstrate the power of the 
Holy Spirit that same day. 
They get to receive the enduement 
Following the same pattern that 
Jesus Christ had in the Bible. 
The difference between the Genesis 
experience and our present
experience is that the experience 
was in the reverse. 
Adam was a spirit before he received 
flesh. We were flesh before we 
received the spirit


The only place in scripture we see 
someone was prayed for for healing and 
it didn't work was in Matthew 17
... and it wasn't Jesus.
Jesus Himself gave only one reason why
 it didn't happen in that scenario.
Matthew 17:20
And Jesus said unto them, BECAUSE 
He wasn't referring to the afflicted 
person's unbelief but to His disciples' 
This already destroys the belief that 
the lack of active faith in the sick 
should render the faith of the minister
 ineffective to heal.
Jesus didn't say...
"because the healing anointing has lifted"
"because he's suffering for his sins"
"because he or his dad didn't have 
enough faith to receive his healing"
"because he has an evil covenant 
with his village people"
"because it is his time to die"
No, none of that mattered.
Just the disciples' faith.
The believer has a command and authority 
to heal and cast out demons that 
surpasses anything else that might 
stand against it.
Mark 16:17-18
And these signs shall follow them that 
believe; In my name shall they cast out 
devils; they shall speak with new tongues; 
[18] They shall take up serpents; and if 
they drink any deadly thing, it shall not 
Observe the absoluteness of that 
No ifs, no buts, no maybes.
To give any other reason why the sick 
can't be healed is to say that thing is 
stronger than the word of Jesus.
If the healing failed to happen, please 
don't ever put the blame on the sick. 
Gear yourself up in faith and minister 
It's not God's fault. His power is 
available in you.
It's not the sick person's fault, even 
if he brought the sickness on himself, 
the forgiving power of Christ in us 
should wipe it all out.
James 5:15
And the prayer of faith shall save 
the sick, and the Lord shall raise 
him up; and if he have committed sins, 
they shall be forgiven him.
And while at it, ensure you get the 
person rejoicing in the gospel of his 
eternal salvation inspite of sickness.
That is greater than bodily healing.
And keep growing in your ability to 
minister the healing power of Christ.
Knowing that in the fullness of the 
stature of Christ, every sickness and 
disease bows to our authority in Him 
just like they did to Jesus 100% of the time!
I have seen many victories in healing,
I believe and affirm that every virus, 
bacteria, all kinds of infections, 
deformities and maladies are subject 
to me in the name of Jesus.
The power of Jesus to heal is real 
even today.
Only believe!
And do your part.

1 Corinthians 15:25 For he must reign, till 
he hath put all enemies under his feet.
1 Corinthians 15:26 The last enemy that 
shall be destroyed is death.
Very unlikely!!
The epistle is clear, GOD WILL DESTROY 
He gives saints ability to RAISE THE 
St. Matthew 10:8 Heal the sick, cleanse 
the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: 
freely ye have received, freely give.
The first mention of 'DIE' in the Bible was 
used as a warning, a warning against the 
aftermath of rejecting life, not an action 
from God to those who reject life.
The warning was the day you eat of this 
Now some facts.
God never created death! God is life!
All He created in Genesis was life!! 
No death!
All His angels minister for men, they 
don't destroy men!
Simple facts!
However, death came in because 
Satan rebelled against God!
Like Jude said, some angels left 
their first estate!
Like Jesus said, HE ABODE NOT IN 
So that departure from the light, 
created DARKNESS!
God didn't create death, death is a 
It is when life leaves, that death 
comes in.
This is so simple even physically!
What you have fundamentally is life, 
what happens when the life leaves 
So death is a creature of aftermath, 
not a creature of the beginning.
An aftermath of REBELLION AGAINST 
Now before you quote, I am God who 
created light and darkness, life and death. 
I kill and make alive etc
Just calm down and read the epistles, 
they are the accurate revelation of God.
Many things can be said about God 
from the Bible but if you can answer 
two questions, you will begin to have 
1. When God came as a man, how 
many of His enemies did He kill?
How many of his enemies did 
He forgive?
2. What does the epistles say about 
God's reaction to death.
What ability does the HolySpirit give 
us in the case of death?
If you can begin your study that way, 
you will get clarity, but if you are 
bent to show how God kills, you have 
won the argument already.
