The Incandesce Of Sonship Via The Hub Of Process – Part 3: Sermon By Bishop Gobanga
His intention was the perfecting and the full equipping of the saints (His consecrated people), [that they should do] the work of ministering toward building up Christ’s body (the church), [That it might develop] until we all attain oneness in the faith and in the comprehension of the [full and accurate] knowledge of the Son of God, that [we might arrive] at really mature manhood (the completeness of personality which is nothing less than the standard height of Christ’s own perfection), the measure of the stature of the fullness of the Christ and the completeness found in Him.Ephesians 4:12-13 (AMPC)
I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago—whether in the body or out of the body I do not know, God knows—was caught up to the third heaven. And I know that this man—whether in the body or away from the body I do not know, God knows— Was caught up into paradise, and he heard utterances beyond the power of man to put into words, which man is not permitted to utter. Of this same [man’s experiences] I will boast, but of myself (personally) I will not boast, except as regards my infirmities (my weaknesses).2 Corinthians 12:2-5 (AMPC)
Paul is talking of a man he knew in Christ. He was not certain if the man caught up in the 3rd heaven was in the body or spirit hearing utterances that could not be comprehended.
The revelation of the vision/experience is twofold. He is not only talking about himself but the Church of Jesus Christ. In Ephesians, the Church is symbolized as a man. This is the Church in her perfected state, mature and having attained the full stature of Christ.
Sonship also has a two fold understanding – it is individual but also the union of the adopted sons of Christ. Some things we cannot access as an individual but with others as one in faith where brotherhood in Christ is the unifying factor, not denominations.
Christ is the Head and the Church is the Body. When the Church operates as one, it has attained to the fullness of maturity. This is the perfected man under the headship of Christ. It is the only way we can access mysteries that cannot be uttered on the earth. This is why we prophesy and know in part. These parts make a whole.
So that there should be no division or discord or lack of adaptation [of the parts of the body to each other], but the members all alike should have a mutual interest in and care for one another. And if one member suffers, all the parts [share] the suffering; if one member is honored, all the members [share in] the enjoyment of it. Now you [collectively] are Christ’s body and [individually] you are members of it, each part severally and distinct [each with his own place and function].1 Corinthians 12:25-27 (AMPC)
Sonship is not about individuals but the whole Church. God in His infinite wisdom did not impart the whole of Himself to one person.
And His gifts were [varied; He Himself appointed and gave men to us] some to be apostles (special messengers), some prophets (inspired preachers and expounders), some evangelists (preachers of the Gospel, traveling missionaries), some pastors (shepherds of His flock) and teachers.Ephesians 4:11 (AMPC)
Christ gave gifts to men to equip the saints for the work of the ministry so that they can be mature.
We are no longer in Pentecost but tabernacle where we have a deeper relationship with God causing us to manifest sonship and to dwell in His presence. The Pentecost season cannot deal with the challenges we have right now.
Sonship is beyond miracles signs and wonders. It is dangerous for a child to walk in miracles, signs and wonders. Mature sons will walk in miracles, signs and wonders with wisdom.
Tabernacle is when the sons operate in divine wisdom. The Church has over-exalted the Pentecost season and there are many doctrines that have come up because of it.
During the Transfiguration, Christ is shown as the summation of the law and the prophets. No one element is more supreme than the other – not the law nor the prophets. Jesus ordained that relationship precedes over the law and prophecy.
We are all vessels in the hands of Christ. That is why Paul was so humble in that vision. He knew that he was a vessel. He was speaking in the third person to avoid drawing attention to himself.
God wants the Church to be caught up in the third heavens. This is the only way that the Church will affect the world and government. The Church in the book of Acts turned cities for God and was powerful because they were in one accord. No one person is more anointed than another thus there is no need for strife in the Church. We all have a grace that is unique to us.
There is a demand in the spirit for believers in the Church to be directed and controlled by the Spirit of God. God leads us through our spirit. Your spirit is not separate from God the Father unless there is sin reigning in your life. The spirit has the natural propensity to incline to the Holy Spirit. We are to lay aside our earthly bodies when relating with the spiritual realm.
For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.Romans 8:14 (AMPC)
Therefore if any person is [ingrafted] in Christ (the Messiah) he is a new creation (a new creature altogether); the old [previous moral and spiritual condition] has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new has come!2 Corinthians 5:17 (AMPC)
The body of the new creation will actually reflect who you are in the spirit. You are not your mind or your soul or a physical being. Your spirit is the real you.
The body being talked about is celestial. It is the one that houses your spirit. That body is immortal and can do things that are supernatural. It has the capability to teleport faster than the speed of thought and can pass through walls.
We are to become a spiritual people who are drawing closer to the spiritual realm than the physical realm. We need to ask ourselves if we relate more to the physical than the spiritual realm. Sons are more interested in the spirit realm.
God wants us to have an induction to the spirit world to know what spirits rule your family, your county, etc. To understand why Kenya is the way it is, we are to ascend to the spirit realm. To access the second heavens, which is the realm of execution.
All limitations are bound up in the realm of the soul; this is the realm of the physical and five senses. We must transcend beyond time and space. The spirit realm has no limit and prayers can affect change beyond physical boundaries.
Sons reason with God not with circumstances.
The soul consists of the faculty of the mind, heart and will. The mind receives the divine truth of God. The heart is the locus of your personality and it gives you the capacity to love God and the truth He has deposited in your mind. With your will, you will execute obedience to the things of God.
It is impossible for the soul to function as God intended unless the mind receives truth from the word of God.
A renewed mind transcribes and interprets mysteries of truth received from the spirit of God. Those who have the gift of interpreting tongues have a mind so renewed that they are able to interpret what is happening in the spirit.
You are truly unlimited within the realm of execution when you realize you have all the knowledge that pertains to your purpose as according to His divine power.
It is dangerous to be on this planet as a believer to be ignorant of your purpose, to operate in your purpose without wisdom or serving God’s purpose without knowing what you are doing.
The wisdom of God does not resonate with our circumstances.
When you ascend to another level, you will be called to a higher place of separation. A son does not care about circumstances but steps out by faith. They move before circumstances realign in their favour. There are things that will not move if you do not step out in faith
Excuses come from the soul not in the spirit realm. You are to trust God with the little He has given you. Sons are open to the will of God and to fellow brethren in church.
Every possibility is pragmatic in the spirit realm. God wants us to be led and driven in the spirit realm.
Only in the realm of the spirit is authority found and we take control of the spirit. We are only seers in the spirit man. Our spiritual eye can see what is outside and inside simultaneously. It can decode things faster than a programming machine.
There is a parallel of perceptions in the New Age and the religious. Both have a measure of truth but are too slanted away from the truth. Religion denies the power of everything that Jesus is and His power to transform. New Age is into the spiritual realm, psychic and mystic but they deny the door to it, which is Christ. When you deny the existence of Christ, you become cultic because you will get a counterfeit.
The message of the Lordship of Christ has been buried under religion and all we hear is deception. This is the reason God is releasing a mantle of sonship to move us to the highest level of life than we have ever known. This level is found in His presence.
It is above angels but lower than Christ. God is releasing judgement against this day for the wickedness in high places and against those that want to hinder the manifestation of sonship in many people.
Manifestation of sons means that what is religious will be destroyed. Therefore, we need to be careful of how we perceive because if our perception is dulled by the enemy just a little we will not see where we are going and thus we will not be able to access it. This is because you can only be able to enter into what you see.
The enemy wants to discredit the revelation of Christ in you.
The appearance of Christ will be preceded by the manifestation of the sons of God. God wants the Church to speak as one man and to raise people for the marketplace. God wants us to see what is happening in the realm of the spirit and pray them into manifestation.
We can no longer rely on the systems of the countries we are in and this is a platform God will use to reveal the sons He has to impact the marketplace. God is laying a foundation whereby sons are selected based on the wisdom that they carry.
Christ will manifest through His sons, which will serve as the preceding wave of the manifestation of Himself. These sons understand that what is coming forth is a manifestation of what is happening in heaven.
Sons are to discern the signs and the times because they are the ones creating the times. They ascend the heavens and download the pattern they see. To discern the heart and mind of God.
Creation awaits for the manifestation of sons that will operate as a type that will usher the Church into maturity and common brotherhood.
We are to manifest what God has shown us. Pray for things to manifest. Some things will not come to pass unless you pray. Prayer ensures that what you have seen will come. Let us not wait or slumber in regards to praying for what God has revealed. If we do, then what we have seen will just be a mirage.
God wants us to have what He has shown us. Nothing short of it.
We need to walk in boldness and courage.
