Ninety-Six August 2018
Hello! We at
UACCMI have been directed by the Holy Spirit to provide a monthly
series; we’ll call “Spirit Food”.
Our purpose in
doing this is to assist you in your spiritual growth within the body
of Jesus Christ (the anointed one and His anointing). As the human
body requires food for the nourishment of the physical body, so the
spirit also requires feeding, for spiritual growth. Hosea 4:6 says –
“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge …”. Brothers and
sisters in Christ, we truly desire you to live blessed lives in
accordance with Deuteronomy 28:1-14. To live this type of life
however, you need make the quality decision to make God’s Word the
final authority in your life. These monthly sessions will aid in your
spiritual growth process. Once you are presented with what the Word
of God has to say about an issue, you are responsible for receiving
His love, grace, & favor; and the gift of His righteousness.
Remember, you are greatly blessed, highly favored, and deeply loved
by your Heavenly Father.
This August, let’s focus on the Full Armor of

powers of this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil

Father, your Word says in Romans 10:9-10- “that if I confess with
my mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in my heart that You raised Him
from the dead, that I would be saved. For with the heart one
believes unto salvation.” I believe your Word, Heavenly Father, and
confess Jesus Christ (the anointed one and His anointing) as Lord of
my life now. I believe that You raised Him from the dead. I confess
that I was a sinner, but now I’ve been saved by Your grace, and in
Your thoughts, I am now in right standing with You. I denounce Satan
and all he stands for. In Jesus Name. Amen (so be it).
