Sin is leprosy, shame, contempt, that which is not healthy. Anybody with leprosy is usually secluded and stayed away from. It is rare to hear the talk of healing of leprosy amidst all other miracles usually mentioned. This is because leprosy is terrible. When Jesus cleansed the lepers and only one came back to thank him, it shows that leprosy is terrible and its healing cannot be easily noted even with the one with the ailment because it is a deeply rooted sickness in the human body. It is in the gene and it will take the High Priest to purge it with blood, not with water only. Biologically, blood is thicker than water, likewise purging is more rigorous than cleansing. This is why after a man has been cleansed, he is told to go and wash.
It should be a point of note for us to know that the sin that was taken away from us at New Birth was not the end of dealing with sin. Though sin was dealt with, it had married our inner man and had become one with our spirits; this is why we are asked to be reconciled to God, so that sin nature can be taken away. There is still need for washing and purging by the High Priest so that our leprosy will not come back to us.
Hebrews 7:14, ‘For it is evident that our Lord sprang out of Juda; of which tribe Moses spake nothing concerning priesthood.
The priesthood of Jesus is an abiding and continual priesthood. Cleansing, purging and soul salvation in the New Testament is a process and a patient work that takes time. It can weary the soul of man if he is not granted Grace to stay. We are not the ones to dictate the process of our cleansing or where we want to be washed, it is the job of the priest.
The Word of Life does not make sense straightaway to a soul, it takes time, because it is a new wine and our souls have been used to an old wine given by the old man. Luke 5:39, ‘No man also having drunk old wine straightway desireth new: for he saith, The old is better’. The priesthood of Jesus is to bring the Faith of the Son to our souls and bodies, not to our spirits alone. As a result of the ignorance of most churches about the work of Christ in the Church and in his Body, they do not place importance on the preaching of the remission of sin; sin is an issue of nature and the root of every problem. Divine nature is the answer to sin which must be preached with many words – engrafted words.
We should not be angry that we do not hear what we want to hear in the Church. God has a burden which bows his head and touches his heart; this burden is the major reason we are in church not for anything else. God has what He wants to say which we must listen to. We must get to that stage where what concerns God is what should concern us. We must hear what Christ is saying and not be offended in Him. Matthew 11:6, ‘And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me. God has shown strength and beauty in many creatures and in various ages but He is seeking to do what He did in Jesus in us. God is not out to make us millionaire and that is why believers will never be richer financially than unbelievers.
Christ is like a dialysis machine that performs the work of cleaning the kidney but he wants to become the whole of us not just a part. We are brought to church so that toxins can be removed from us. If a man does not abide in Christ he cannot be cleansed nor purged for it is the husband man that purges. Cleansing is the beginning of purging and purging is the end of cleansing; if we are being cleansed there are some fruits that should begin to show in us. The brethren must testify about us in church that we are being cleansed. This work must be evident as transformation in our lives. The vine is not Christ alone but he is Christ of the Church so we need the Church to be cleansed and Cleansing cannot be done in isolation then we can move on to purging for God wants to raise men that can bear fruit upward and for God to be glorified.
We must use our faith to concretize our hope – the hope of the Glory of God. God wants men to carry the hope that Jesus is carrying but we cannot carry this hope if we do not have faith. All the words we have been hearing are for us to be beings of faith and for our hope not to be weary. Sin deceives and tells lies to us; we need to receive spiritual sight to discern the deceitfulness of sin. When we do not abide in the Christ, we will wither and dry off. John 15:6.
Hebrews 1:1- 2
God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,
Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;
So it is clear that since the beginning God has been speaking, though his intention has not been realized. He has been speaking to our fathers by the prophets but they were not able to embody what he has in mind. He spoke to them but they do not have the template to keep all of God’s thought. Until, he found Jesus, and Jesus now is the beginning of the speaking of God. To meet Christ is to meet all that God wants to say, when this happens, we do not need to go back to Abraham, and not even Moses but to stay with Christ and allow him to show us the things he has received from the Father, that made him who he is. So, the New Testament is not the combinations of many things, it is just the speaking of one person, one person who has allowed the Father to speak to him, and has kept all the speaking.
All that God has is salvation. God is salvation and what he speaks is salvation. The only man that has been saved is Jesus Christ and the reason is because he has received all the speaking of the salvation of God into himself and by that, he became those words. He was made, hence became the author and the finisher, high priest of our salvation. So it is clear that salvation is the only thing that God himself wants for mankind. If we are not saved, we are falling short as mankind. If a man is not saved, he is lesser than a man. That is why when you checked everything that makes up God, every strata of God is salvation. From His head to His feet is salvation; He is Salvation.
Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip.
For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompence of reward;
How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him;
Salvation is great. What God spoke to Christ is Salvation; this made Jesus the beginning of the speaking of Salvation. The Apostles, even Apostle Paul received what he called so great salvation which was confirmed unto the saints by them that heard Christ. So if a man restricts himself to hearing Moses or Abraham, such can’t be saved from sin. The confirmation of salvation must come from those who have heard Christ. This speaking must be revealed; this is why salvation program was fully initiated after Jesus’s death because then he had become both Lord and Christ and none before him could have pioneered it. Christ ministered after the order of what he has received, so that the Apostles too can continue the speaking. So when Paul teaches from morning to night, he could do this because he has received salvation and that is what he teaches and preaches.
So when believers gather in the Church, it should be unto salvation because it is the house of salvation. If salvation is not delivered to the saints in a church whenever they gather, such cannot be tagged a church of Christ. No one can be opened to the salvation message and not changed. Hence, many things visible must have happened to a believer who is part of a community for the brethren to come to a conclusion that he has been saved. No one can be said to be saved just by experiencing initial salvation. Before one can say such is going through salvation, he must have fulfilled the requirement of Hebrews 2:1, which is consciously paying attention to the things being preached, lest he drifts away.
Salvation is progressive and cumulative; any step of salvation that is missed, will shut upper door from opening. So Paul was addressing the Hebrews in chapter 2 to give earnest heed to the things that they have heard. Also, we also need to attend to the things we have heard, it’s just like the Ephesians church also go back to the things they were taught. Salvation is cumulative; it is laid one stone on the other, this is the way we are raised, a building.
We stumble at the place of areas like friendship because something is wrong, which needs us to go back to the messages on friendship. Salvation is a Program with Courses that every soul needs to complete; certain doors of experiences and growth will not open if these courses are not passed. Even Jesus went through all that was set before him, despising the shame till he obtained a name and before the gate could even be lifted up, and so could the Everlasting door because he became Lord after fulfilling all of the requirements. Likewise, if a man does not fulfill the course of righteousness, doors will not open because there is salvation at every level.
There is the elementary principle of the doctrine of Christ, which is also called the milk of the Word. This milk has its serving strength which if neglected and not taken can affect at a higher level of growth. So as a believer who got born again, he must have gone through a measure of salvation via the word preached to him at initial salvation because that word has its own cleansing power which must have destroyed some works of the flesh. This is the way our sin is washed away and our spot and wrinkle removed; it is also how we appear before God. This means that as we are constantly coming to God, there are layers of cleansing and purging that are going on within us. It will show because what we call the works of the flesh is manifestation of flesh that cannot be covered, and when it is exposed, it is a sign to everyone that you are being saved.
A man cannot constantly express manifestation of flesh and be said to be spiritual. The gravity of this places a demand on the soul for us to look into the message again so that the building will be thorough. Now, one may want to ask of what need is a change again when the visible works of the flesh is under control? The truth is; it’s from one level of idolatry or sin expression to other. Idolatry is not in the physical only; this was what John was warning the little children about in 1 John 5:21, ‘Little children, keep yourselves from idols’, this is not talking about physical idol because everything we see people exhibit have their root in their master, who is the source of where they live from. Fornication has its own physical appearance and it also has the invisible expression, of which if the physical expression is not dealt with properly, one will not be able to handle the invisible part.
2 Corinthians 10: 3-5
For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:
(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)
Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
So when a man is purged from his physical sins, then can the invisible expression be dealt with which are his thoughts. So, what make man evil are thoughts. A man who is greatly saved is a man who cannot think of evil and a man who cannot reason unrighteousness. So, salvation is the healing of thoughts; ’as a man thinks in his heart so he is’.
Jesus maps out every way to save every soul. May heaven grant us mercy so that we can find Patience because we must be saved.
2 Peter 1:4
Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
The teaching on exceeding grace and promises has been an exposition on how the priest has been writing in our hearts and also putting these writings in our minds. These exceeding promises relate that when writings have been actualized in our hearts, we will become the children of God, also his sons and he will become our Father. These are powerful promises that the devil is afraid of, but the thrust of our faith is that faithful is he that has promised. If he has promised it, he definitely has the power to actualize it.
By the time we have partaken of the whole process which is called divine nature, we have escaped. An escape is not when we nearly fall into a temptation or when it was the intervention of God to help us not to fall. Escape is when we have been saved and are partaking of divine nature. It is of note to know that since the fall of Adam, nobody has been able to escape until Jesus Christ. We can’t say that God will save us if he will not first take us, at that point, we will not have a life of our own.
The assignment of the High Priest is to save us and give us divine nature because this whole process of salvation kills self (us). Truth is that it is better for us to come out of the thicket of sin and die in the hand of God. True freedom is dying to self, sin, pleasures of sin and the world. Actually we belong to a present generation that is so afraid to make choices of life, denying sin. If we don’t choose God, we will yet die because even sin kills. A reality we must know is this: if we choose God, God will kill us, and if we don’t, sin will kill us. Which is the wise decision to make? Of course! It is better we die in God’s hands who made us. The same way God has cross, so also does Satan. Jesus said take up your cross and follow me. We must know that even the two thieves bore their cross given to them by Satan. If we should follow God or Satan, we will have cross. While then should we not carry the cross that comes from God? His burden is light and his yoke easy. These things should be clear in our hearts; we should see reality and choose Life.
One thing the devil can use to keep man is fear. Though sin is a preacher, the High Priest can save a man to the uttermost.
2 Peter 1:5-8
For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; 6 and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; 7 and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love. 8 For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Verses 5-8 are the criteria that will bring about entrance. So, the first level of cleansing should take care of these and the first criterion to ensure this is meekness; meaning that what all of these criteria should produce in us is meekness. Meekness is not what we do; it is activated when all the criteria mentioned in this scripture is met.
We are meek when we can begin to be taught the engrafted word of God. The book of John talks about seeing the Kingdom and entering the Kingdom but aside from that, Jesus taught that, beyond seeing and entering there is also living and becoming something in the Kingdom which is another level entirely. Seeing and striving to enter is the first thing, we must therefore come to a knowing that even if we have left everything and have entered the Kingdom, it is not enough. This should not scare us but should help us understand that we are on a journey. Entering the Kingdom is the first level of meekness and the work has not ended.
How can we know that the work has not ended?
1 John 2:12
12 I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his name’s sake.
There is a progress from little children to fatherhood, then to little children again. So, Jesus describes it like this; ‘take my yoke upon you because I am meek and lowly’. These two are dimensions. We need meekness to be taught because the meek shall he teach his way. If we are not meek we can’t be taught. The way of the high is lowliness. We must arrive at meekness, until then we cannot receive the engraved word that will now make us low. Remember Meekness brings us into the kingdom and the greatest in the kingdom is the little child.
Can we get to a place when we can have a resolution in our hearts to follow these things to the end? It is better for the ram to be set loose from its thicket and be offered by its creator than for it to die in the thicket. Can we come to this right judgment which is yet a little wisdom? In the natural, it is obvious that we have spent so much time to be what/who we are today, and we have to spend much more including night and day.
We need to hold the devil and kill him. Anything that has killed our fathers is not a friend but enemy, we should not give sin any chance at all, we should trust God with what it takes to totally deal with sin. The way we activate the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ is by holy anger and that is what our High Priest wants to do this season. We can’t love sin and expect Jesus to come and save us there. To engage Grace we will be shown unrighteousness and will be given the chance to choose because Jesus had to choose too, he chose righteousness and rejected the evil. Opportunities come to us which is why there are so many enlightenment in the spirit over and over again.
Our journey is long! So when we are awoken from our slumber, it transcends into series of waking before we come to consciousness. The Lord wants to shake us, hence why we are experiencing a lot of sprinklings. Can we allow the Holy Ghost to shake us? If he does not do this for us, we will keep on sleeping. If we can wake up and have hatred against this thing, it’s just the initial step of action, because we may have hatred for sin but that does not mean we have power over it.
We should hate sin, we should not be in it and make merry. Let’s bow our hearts and allow mercy to break these things. This high priest can save; the first thing that must be put in us is anger and hatred to/for sin because if we don’t hate it, we will not be saved from it.
Leviticus 14 is one book in the Old Testament that make one wonder at the sickness of Leprosy and the details of its cure and rituals that concerns its cleansing which can only be carried out by the Priest. Moses’ faithfulness is that he followed according to the details of God’s pattern.
In this journey of salvation, we can’t neglect the precepts that God has laid down, we must follow and do according to pattern just as the washing or cleansing of lepers is so detailed.
The intent of God for man is salvation, this is what he wants to achieve in man. So, it was not because man fell that the work of salvation came to be. It was always the intent of deity from the beginning. God is salvation and it is to him we are going back to. Psalm 85:4. Nothing can stop the anger of God except salvation. If salvation is not revealed, the wrath of God is not taken away. We’re only saved from the earth when salvation comes to us. Mercy is also salvation. So, we cannot afford to play with our salvation. Salvation is a process and the process is culminative. It’s one level after the other. To get into the end of salvation, is to enter into God. As we keep coming and receiving of God, we’re receiving salvation from the Lord. To meet with the word is to meet with salvation. Isaiah 49:6
When God has ministered unto us, and we’re receiving of him, he expects that we give of what we have received to others so that they can also be saved. He wants to raise us as his representative, bearers of his salvation. Because when salvation is ministered to us, we become salvation/ saviors. What shows us as servants of God is salvation. If we can’t minister salvation then we’re not his servant, we have nothing doing in the five fold. Before God sends, he teaches, he raises, and he gives this salvation so that the sent can minister salvation to whoever comes their way. Now, a minister that cannot minister salvation is not worthy of being a servant.
There’s no worship without salvation. And when we encounter salvation, it teaches us how to worship. Worship is not singing song, it’s a life. Our life should be in sync with the Salvation that God is working on the inside of us. Mercy is God. So, when we’re encountering salvation, we’re encountering his mercy. We live by the dictates of that mercy because the Lord is faithful. There’s no faithfulness without salvation. It is in our learning of salvation that we learn faithfulness. As we encounter salvation, it is line upon line, precept upon precept, it’s a journey. And as we faithfully continue the journey, more of salvation is being revealed. But, when we receive and we are doing nothing with it, nothing comes forth again. So, we should be conscious of our salvation process, and we should understand that it is not for ourselves but to save others. So, as we pay attention to the way salvation is coming to us, we’re being saved and we’re being raised to save so that we can be given forth to save many.
The waters (teachings and preaching) are made for our washing, it cleanses us from sin. There are things hidden in us that we are unaware about, but as we keep coming to the word (salvation), they open us. As the spirit detects them, washing begins and we get better and refined through the fire. Salvation is also fire. Anytime we approach the lord, we are coming to the furnace of God for him to wash us from head to toe. So that when we’re stepping out, we’re stepping out better persons. But, that does not mean the work of salvation is finished.
Salvation is preservation. Nothing else can keep man except salvation. Nothing else can make us remain pure because if salvation is not there we can be taken over again. As cleansing goes on, we are also being preserved. So, that we’re not influenced again to turn back. God is a faithful savior. He would save us to the uttermost.
Salvation comes through knowledge; we have to be taught to come into salvation. God has called us his people and that is why he keeps coming to us to give us the knowledge of salvation. To keep opening our eyes so that we can keep seeing what he’s saying and doing. Sin is a major separation between God and man. God cannot behold sin. It’s something that takes man away from God. Even when sin was found in the devil, he was sent out of heaven. Sin does not stand in his presence, God arbors sin. Grace and sin don’t walk together. As grace is being ministered to us, sin is being done away with so that we can be purged.
So, salvation is a tool for remitting our sins. So, the washing by the water is actually to remove sin so that we can be able to stand. Hebrews 6:9.
Salvation works better things in us because it is predicated upon better promises and better things are of God, these things accompany salvation. There are the workings of better things. They are making better things real in us. That means, salvation leaving the inside of the bible and is being implanted inside of us. So, they are working in us as we keep hearing, they are working his promises inside of us that we may be able to stand as his minister. The Lord himself is at work within each of us. So, there’s hope. We’re becoming. As the Lord is coming, he’s changing and washing our hearts; as the words are coming, the words are cleansing us so that we can be able to stand and minister. This is our washing. God is raising priests but they have to be washed first before they can wash others. We’re not hearing for ourselves. God is not saving us so that we can be saved alone but that others can be saved. Amen!
God is detailed, Moses faithfulness was because he followed according to pattern; we must follow and do according to pattern. The washing of the leper is so detailed.
Leviticus 14:2, ‘This shall be the law of the leper in the day of his cleansing: He shall be brought unto the priest:’
Leprosy is a plague. Sin is leprosy. As an individual can carry leprosy also a whole house can also carry leprosy but they must perceive and know that they have leprosy. We should not be deceived that we do not have leprosy, it is a man that has leprosy that voices out not someone else, else he is not sensitive to the unveiling of the Holy Ghost and there is no salvation for him who is deceptive. We need to get to the point where we are no longer deceiving ourselves if we don’t want to die in leprosy. The cleansing of a leper is almost the same as the consecration of a priest. Consecration is for every one not just the priest alone. The first day the leper comes, he is not allowed in the community.
Sin is very deadly. After a man is exposed, if he goes away, the leprosy erupts again because he is not totally cleansed. A leprous person is to be outside the camp so that the cleansing can be thorough else such will be worse than he was before. Sin is a nature and it is controlled by a spirit, so we must go through the process of cleansing and finish it. The removing of this nature of sin should produce a divine nature in us. Some of us need shaving like ta leper for the hair in a leper’s body carry organism that causes leprosy. This shaving symbolizes the removal of the oldness in a man.
And the priest shall take some of the blood of the trespass offering, and the priest shall put it upon the tip of the right ear of him that is to be cleansed, and upon the thumb of his right hand, and upon the great toe of his right foot:
Our instrument of hearing must be cleansed. We cannot forsake our hearing. The hand in this verse denotes what we do and the big toe denotes our walk. We must mind our walk if we will make progress, living without leprosy. Until we see the end of this leprosy we are not done. We need to vacate and forsake a house full of leprosy. Whatever makes us go on sinning is from the inside, not peripheral. Sin is meant to be where our Lord was crucified and destroyed not found with us.
2 Peter 3:1
This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance:
The issue of salvation is what we must continue to hear. We will hear so many messages in many forms putting us in remembrance for when we are reminded of something over and over again it keeps us on our toes and make us be on guard. It is not easy to put salvation in a man for it was not easy for sin to dwell in him also.
Dealing with Sin and Transgression by the Law of Obedience (the Law of Christ)!
He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.
When sin is exposed it should not be covered anymore. You should be the first person to know when you do wrong or commit a sin. There must be admittance and readiness. to let go of the sin. Willingly make a commitment in your heart with the Holy Ghost to forsake the sins. If they are sins that you cannot handle alone, then confess one to another. Refusal to commit a sin to one another shows we are covering the sin. After committing the sin to others, prayers will be made/offered on our behalf, which will in turn generate power that will enable us overcome the sin. We should always look out for one another. Salvation is the highest assignment that is being carried out in the heavenlies and on the throne. The Church is the house of salvation. If we cannot raise aged men whose strength has been renewed, then we have lied.
Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?
Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip.
The salvation that guarantees preservation means it is immune to sin. God is immune to sin; he dwells in Light that nothing, including sin can approach. The Light has the capability to dissolve sin and also preserve. It is called Eternal Salvation which is the nature of their fiber that cannot contact unrighteousness. God cannot lie because his makeup cannot lie. We must inherit salvation because we have been ordained as heirs of God. Christ inherited salvation and this is the best thing he gives to anyone he loves. Romans 8:17, ‘And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.’
We are bigger than a billion dollar; no amount can pay for our souls for it is precious before God and only a precious blood (of Christ) could buy it. This is the reason why the devil is contending for the soul.
The word of salvation guarantees salvation; none can inherit salvation without the things or words of salvation. These words did not come to appearance until Christ came; He brought the Word to being. Moses couldn’t speak the words for he lacked them.
The things of man, which was brought through installations, have to do with the nature of his soul. God cannot bring the word of salvation to man if there are no installations that can receive them. The installations are members of the soul that are needed for conduct. Sin has wires with capacity that can move into man and break down installations. It makes man completely sensual and unable to feel righteousness. Ephesians 4:19.
Sin knows a lot about man’s frame; it is the other side of righteousness that has capacities to flow through the human soul system to destroy it to a point where it lacks the ability to feel. Feeling is the last sense of sensation. God is meant to be a program that is supposed to go through a soul system and configure it to righteousness. Sin has put a stop to this procedure and hijacked the process. Acts 17:27, ‘That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:’
New birth is for those who have died; Jesus came for sinners, not for righteous men. Every human was dead in sin. Salvation is not meant for a good man but for a bad man. Man has overtime hewn the ability to manage a program; that is why every religion has brought a program to replace spirituality. They have through piety and other behavioral things tried to contain the spread of virus (sin) in the soul program.
For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompence of reward;
Jesus however did not commit himself to men because he understood the soul program and alone can save the soul. Those who faulted under the law either transgressed against the law or disobeyed it. Soul has its installations and only the person that understands these installations can tamper with it. The devil knows this installation; he is a smart priest who should not be toyed with. He was able to network the only earth through different nations and ages and has managed it. However, the interference of Jesus broke the reign of the devil on the earth and stopped the deep penetration of sin. The devil however lacked the wisdom of the cross, which is why he always stumbles at the cross. The cross is a higher wisdom. 1 Corinthians 2:2, ‘For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.’
Sin and disobedience came into the world through one man. Romans 5:19. Adam was not ignorant or deceived; he knew what was going on but he willingly sinned through disobedience. His disobedience led the woman to transgress; the woman did not disobey, she only transgressed but Adam disobeyed. 2 Timothy 2:14. The Soul must learn obedience if it is being saved in order to overcome transgression. Obedience must be broken to make a soul to transgress. Disobedience and transgression are output of sin and they were judged. Hebrews 2:2.
Sin lacks the ability to slay a man without deception; deception aids the working of sin in a man. The essence of the Gospel is to demystify sin and death and to unveil righteousness so as to bring the right of way for men to be turned all over to God.
Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:
The devil cannot guarantee transgression without concretizing disobedience and in order to do this, he taught man sin until man became the children of disobedience. Man became naturally programmed to disobey God. If the natural law is given to a natural man who was not a sinner (like Adam), the law would improve him because the law can give Life. However, when it was time to receive another law that could save man totally, the nature in man rebelled against the new order/law because of the sin in him. Romans 7:11-13. This is because sin is a program on the inside that has made man naturally disobedient and become children of wrath.
It is through disobedience that man is made a servant in the spirit. No man can serve a servant that he disobeys. The sin of rebellion is worse than witchcraft because it is a sin of disobedience. When man is under authority, he is covered. The order of the spirit stipulates that man should be directed or be under covering; man should not be the lord over his own life. The western man prefers to be a lord over his ownlife and not under any supreme being. They are however unaware that it is not about the physical world around them but another world within them. This has made it difficult for him to receive Life despite all manner of good that he tries to do.
The heavens want to restore us to obedience from being children of disobedience. Transgression cannot be stopped if the installation of obedience is not restored in us. Salvation cannot be guaranteed if these installations are not restored.
2 Corinthians 10:2-5
If man has not come to a place to master where he arrests thoughts unto obedience, he cannot conquer these imaginations and principalities. It must be in our nature to arrest thoughts to obey or else many thoughts will arise to bring us into captivity. Failure to continuously live by revelation will make man easily get tired of salvation program. No man can become a child of obedience without the Law of Life at work. The program meant to inherit Life is the Law but man (Adam) willingly disobeyed this law by putting creation in hope. This was not originally meant to be so as he was supposed to be the hope.
This is the new design of installation that should take care of the old man. This instruction/program is a doctrine of the Son and the Father. Doctrines are meant to be obeyed; it is not just instructions but a program. There can be instructions around the doctrine but the doctrine itself is a program. God dealt with sin by bringing the doctrine of the father and son to ensure that the doctrine has the necessities to take care of the heart and mind and to disable sin from using the program. The scriptures are committed to fulfilling the details of instructions.
Leviticus 14:2; 57
The whole program of the lepers is a law. This law is a body of teaching that must not be broken or else it will not achieve what it’s intended to. Therefore, no priest could adjust it because it is a law; they could only teach it. This law is a teaching that delivers the cleansing of a leper.
Hebrews 9:19-23; 5: 1
The water and blood were needed to ascertain that the New Covenant is enforced. God wanted to restore the ignorant and those that were out of the woods. Ignorance is what makes a man transgress out of the way and hindered him from hearing instructions about the way. What is given to the hearts and the minds is doctrine, which also means laws.
Obedience is in two levels, which are: obeying the laws of the waters and that of the blood. We are to become children of the blood and the water. John 1:12. If we are born of water and of blood, it means we have become children of God and have been converted from the will of flesh and the initial birth of water and blood of man.
1 John 2:13
I write unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I write unto you, young men, because ye have overcome the wicked one. I write unto you, little children, because ye have known the Father.
The transformation from children to fathers and from fathers to children showed they entered into a new realm where the former installation could no longer have any effect on them. Satan can only desire what Jesus has cleansed when the cleansing has not been perfected in that man. Luke 22:31.
When a man is in obedience, he is in service. A man is a servant to whosoever he obeys. Obedience is a doctrine that is meant to make man a servant of righteousness. Man had initially been servant of disobedience and had been serving the devil through his thoughts. The doctrine of obedience is however meant to cleanse us to make us generate worship to God. The devil cannot live without worship; he sustains by worship. The devil takes the worship when man begins to act beyond his control. Starve the devil of worship by killing the things that can fire up our pride in natural things.
Anyone that is not a child of doctrine cannot be free from the service of Satan. Every doctrine or teaching has an end (something to deliver) when it is obeyed. Sin, when it is obeyed delivers death; while righteousness, when it is obeyed, delivers life. Jesus Christ was not perfectly made a son until he learnt obedience. Hebrews 5:9. He obeyed before he became the Son but had to obey through sufferings for his sonship to be perfected. God would not make him the author of salvation if he was not confirmed obedient till death. We must receive the form of doctrine. Our righteousness will be based on who we are on the inside not how we seem/look on the outside. Matthew 5:28.
The Grace is the doctrine of God; this doctrine is adorned through the teaching of Grace. We must be able to summarize every teaching to know if it validates that doctrine which was earlier delivered to the saints (the law of Christ). This doctrine has a pattern/ form that must open worldly lust. When this pattern works on you, it brings up a new man.
The Grace that will establish salvation will be through the teaching of the doctrine. The devil does not leave a man when he believes, he goes after such a man to see his progress in the spirit and how he obeys God’s laws. When you do not see the offence of the leader that you are under, you are blessed.
The key to will is love; when a man gets love, he cracks will. When you enter into love, you come into will. Concerning the doctrine, man’s common sense is unfruitful. Luke 14:26. The disciples overcame the world and the lusts thereof and they kept a pure testimony as a remembrance to the churches. Galatians 2:12.
Any man that preaches in conflict to the scriptures will eventually be destroyed. 2 John 1:10. The ministry of the water and the blood are doctrines which are a whole package of teachings and not by what good we do. These teachings must be followed continuously until we come to the end of the law and then be ushered to the next law of obedience aimed at bringing men to perfection. Amen!
