The University of Spiritual Babies

There is a university that has a very large student therein. Many people are in this university and they do not know. This group of people living a life that is beyond the standard of God; this people have remained babies and have refused to grow; due to this stagnancy has set in and many people have even begun to stink.
The agenda of this mystery is to identify and deal with spiritual Stagnancy which is a result of being in this school of spiritual babies. The school has tied the hands of heaven to bless so many; because this school is a cage and bondage in out self. May you begin to grow and the mighty hand of God, move out from this school of Spiritual Babies in name of Jesus.

The University of Spiritual Babies
"Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, different nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all; But is under tutors and governors until the time appointed of the father. Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world:" {Gal 4:1-3}
The scriptures emphasize a fact that, even though a child has all the inheritance, has all the cars and other possessions of his father; he cannot access them; Why? He is a Child!
Same it is in the Spiritual Realm;
As far as you remain as a child in the spirit, you are a slave and do not have access to your benefits
The ultimate command to all Christians è is to grow
Refusal to grow is a call to slavery

The reason people go for several deliverance without lasting result is because this people have refuse to grow.

ü No matter how great your destiny is;
ü No matter how powerful your family is,
ü No matter how promising your future looks,;
ü No matter the great visions and prophesies concerning your destiny;
ü No master the authority you have in Chris;
ü No matter how long you have been coming to church;
A Child can be CONTROLLED, MANIPULATED, confused, intimidated.

"I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me."{Gal 2:20}
The old Paul had been crucified;
Ø The Paul that used to be harassed, tossed about, intimidated has been crucified.
Facts About Spiritual Growth
v The reason why you still experience the harassment of the enemy is because you have refused to grow; you remain at the same level with the enemy; where they have access to you.

v Instead of growing, many people have put their whole life in the hands of prophet; mountain prophets. This people have cause havoc and worsened a lot of people’s troubles.
v It is obvious that Christian maturity is far from those who claims to the Christian; Many People are growing physically but not in the spirit.
v Many people devote less attention and devotion to study their Bible compared to how much their devote to worldly professional study.

7 Marks of Spiritual Babies
 Prolonged Infancy (Stagnancy)
A lot of people are Christians; they come to Church; say prayers; read scriptures, but they are still spiritual babies.

This mark is seen;
ü When you have stunted growth and you have become a spiritual dwarf.
ü When you cannot draw power & strength from your own personal Bible study. The Bible should personal speak to you.
 Slaves to Feelings and Emotion

ü When people are very sensitive to satisfying yourself.
ü It is only about them and not about Christ
ü This people are very selfish


"For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men?" {1 Cor 3:3}
Quarrelsomeness is a symptom of carnality and sign of Spiritual immaturity.
Most Spiritual babies are touchy, have Strong dislikes, very Quarrelsome.
They Quarrel over small issues; they fight at car parks; They fight their spouses over little things
Grow up so that the enemy will not give you an evil luggage.
Domination by Self

Self is an idol; You need to dethrone self and enthrone Christ
"But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway."{1 Cor 9:27}
v The flesh will make a person Cast out demons and still go to hell.
v The flesh will make God to use a person so much and the person will still go to hell
