TOPIC: Sanctification: Platform For Wonders – By David Ibiyeomie
Romans 8:19 (KJV) For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.
Christianity is not a religion; but a call to manifestation. The whole world is waiting for your manifestation and not your explanation. The only way to prove to the world that Jesus is alive is by the signs and wonders we command.
John 4:48 (KJV) Then said Jesus unto him, except ye see signs and wonders, ye will not believe.
John 14:12 (KJV) Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
As a child of God, working in signs and wonders is your birthright. To be born-again is to be born into signs and wonders. However, sanctification is what gives you the platform and foundation for a life of signs and wonders. Before Jesus could operate in signs and wonders, He had platforms of holiness, purity and sanctification. So to operate in signs and wonders, you must live a holy life.
Joshua 3:5 (KJV) And Joshua said unto the people, Sanctify yourselves: for tomorrow the LORD will do wonders among you.
Sanctification is the work of the Holy Spirit in the life of a regenerated Christian that purifies, quickens the conscience to be alive and destroys the quest for sin. Until you are sanctified, you cannot see wonders. Sanctification is essential for every child of God because it guarantees divine intervention.
Psalms 45:7-8 (KJV) Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.All thy garments smell of myrrh, and aloes, and cassia, out of the ivory palaces, whereby they have made thee glad.
God anoints you for wonders when you forsake sin.
Also sanctification enables you have a relationship with God.
John 8:29b (KJV) …For I do always those things that please him.
Factors that Guarantee Sanctification:
New birth- When you are born-again, your spirit rules over the flesh. John 3:3 (KJV) Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.The Use of the Will-Power- 1 Corinthians 9:27 (KJV) 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.The Help of the Holy Spirit- Romans 8:26 (KJV) Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
The Holy Spirit helps us through His voice and when we pray in other tongues.
Consciously walk in purity from today and be launched into an endless season of signs and wonders in Jesus Name – Amen!
God bless you
