WELCOME TO A NEW  MONTH

AUGUST  2016: MONTH OF  SANCTIFICATION

Ex 30:29 Lev 8:12 Jos 3:5 Isa 8:13, 1 Thess 5:23Jn 17:17

God did not call believers to live in immorality ( sin ) but rather to live a sanctified or separated life of purity unto Him. Anyone who preaches differently is not representing God well. Christians are caught up and sometimes  contaminated with the evil that is in the world. Oftentimes, Christians are influence to live a life they do not wish to live.  When an utensil is dirty, it will mar the precious and taste of a delicious  food. But with a clean utensil, the beauty of the food is seen and enjoyed. God wants to cleanse and protect  us from the evil in the world. As God cleanses your life, you will become much profitable. Sanctification, is not an attainment, it is the state into which God, in grace, calls sinful men, and in which they begin their course as Christians. Sanctification” means “separation to God. The separation of the believer from evil things and ways. There are two types of  Sanctification in a Christian life: Positional Sanctification and Progressive sanctification. Positional Sanctification is the position of a believer immediately he surrenders his life to Jesus; pure and separated to God. Progressive or Experiential sanctification is reproducing that sanctification in our actions in our day to day life. It takes the Power of The Holy Spirit to live.

SANCTIFICATION

Christians are also caught up with th evil in the world. In all the Power of the Holy Spirit is working in them to examplify the life of Christ; our the commander-in-chief.

God did not call believers to live in immorality (i.e. sin ) but rather to live sanctified or separated lives  of purity unto Him. Anyone who preaches differently is not representing God well. Sanctification is that relationship with God into which men enter by faith in Christ (Acts 26:18; 1 Corinthians 6:11) and to which their sole title is the death of Christ (Ephesians 5:25-26; Colossians 1:22; Hebrews 10:10, 29; 13:12).’”

Sanctification” means “separation to God…the separation of the believer from evil things and ways. Sanctification, is not an attainment, it is the state into which God, in grace, calls sinful men, and in which they begin their course as Christians (Colossians 3:12; Hebrews 3:1)

Christians are completely new in our spirits. The rest of the Christian life is bringing the body and the soul under the control of this born-again spirit through the renewing of the mind.

There are two types of sanctification in the Christian life.

First is a positional sanctification which  is the possession of every New Testament believer “in Christ.”.  Our born-again spirits are instantly sanctified the moment we make Jesus our Lord . They remain this way regardless of fluctuations in our actions (Hebrews 10:10). Therefore, the sanctification that has already taken place in our spirits forms  the basis for our relationship with the Lord.

Second is Progressive Sanctification or experiential sanctification (i.e. living a holy life}: it is not enough to only be separated unto God in our spirits. What has taken place in our spirits must manifest itself in our actions. This outward separation, or sanctification, is not constant, and it fluctuates according to what we focus our attention on.We have already been sanctified in our born-again spirits, once and for all, which is our positional sanctification but we are progressively reproducing that sanctification in our actions day by day which is called progressive sanctification.

Sanctification is God’s will for the believer (1 Thessalonians 4:3), and His purpose in calling him by the gospel (1 Thessalonians 4:7); this process by saying, “‘Sanctification is also used in the N.T. as the separation of the believer from evil things and ways. It must be learned from God (1 Thessalonians 4:4). God  teaches it by His Word (John 17:17, 19;. Psalms 17:4; 119:9). It must be pursued by the believer, earnestly and undeviatingly (1 Timothy 2:15; Hebrews 12:14). Holy character or living  is not vicarious (1 Thessalonians 3:13).  It cannot be transferred or imputed.  It is an individual possession, built up, little by little, as the result of obedience to the Word of God  and of following the example of Christ  in the power of the Holy Spirit Matt 11:29 Phil 2:5 John 13:15 Romans 8:13; Ephesians 3:16. The Holy Spirit is the Agent in Sanctification. You have been called to live a Holy life in this world full of evil but not in your own power but in the POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.

So we are already sanctified in Christ { Positional Sanctification} Hebrews 10:10, and we are being sanctified daily as we yield to God, and we will be completely sanctified when we see the Lord 1 John 3:1-2. The God of all Grace sanctify you spirit, soul and body. Receive Grace to live a sanctified, prosperous and victorious life in Jesus mighty name; Amen.

 

 

Welcome to our Service;

Beloved of God God did not call believers to live in immorality ( sin ) but rather to live sanctified or separated lives . Many things are fighting to defy a Christian and make him look defeated in thee eyes of many. This type of battle was staged against Joshua who was a priest of God as we are today according to Zacharia 3:1-10. The man of God had a great struggle with satan who  covered him with dirty garment. This same struggle is going on in our christain life today. The enemy wants to cover us with the garment of shame, reproach, lack, sickness, failure, unfriutfulness,etc. Sometimes the challenge is too heavy that a christian wants to give up. You are not alone. Joshua the high Priest faced that struggle and God came to his rescue and removed that dirty garment. God also want  those dirty garment out of your life. Help is rising up for  you. You are in Christ and have been separated unto God. Whatever that is fighting you is fighting against God. God will arise on your behalf and fight for you. You are called to live a sanctified life. Both Postional and Progressive Sanctification. It is not something that you have to do alone. It is something to do with the help  of the Holy Spirit. As you cooperate with the Holy Spirit, you will win every battle and your testimony shall be loud and clear. You will only fail in a battle of life if you chose to neglect the help of the Holy Spirit. As you walk with the Holy Spirit “….so when the enemy shall come in like a flood The Holy Spirit shall lift up a standard against him; Isaiah 59:19. Sanctification is God’s will for you { 1 Thessalonians 4:3). In this month of Sanctification, whatever that want to make you dirty or pollute your testimony as a Christian is defeated now. Receive the Grace and power to live a sanctified, blessed, prosperous and victorious life in every area in Jesus mighty name.
