The Incandesce Of Sonship Via The Hub Of Process – Part 6: Sermon By Bishop Gobanga
So I went to the angel and told him to give me the little scroll. And he said to me, “Take and eat it; it will make your stomach bitter, but in your mouth it will be sweet as honey.” And I took the little scroll from the hand of the angel and ate it. It was sweet as honey in my mouth, but when I had eaten it my stomach was made bitter.Revelation 10:9-10 (ESV)
Many people want to mature as sons of God but very few have learned to walk in the secrets of sonship. Jesus gave each of us who believe in His name the power to be a son of God.
Very few believers are willing to pay the cost of manifesting sonship.
There is a big difference between being called a son and becoming a son. To become means you are manifesting as a son of God.
Sonship is not a state nor a position. It is not a rank nor a title. It is a journey that leads you to become one who is manifested.
Manifestation of sonship is becoming who you already are inside of you. Inside of you is the seed of sonship. The DNA of sonship is in the womb of your spirit. You manifest externally who you are internally.
Becoming a son of God has nothing to do with becoming something you were not to begin with.
You manifest externally who you are internally. Do you know who you are internally? Have you discerned the call and ordinations in your life that you are intended to manifest?
Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying: “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.Jeremiah 1:4-5 NKJV
Purpose is not external. It is internal. In Jeremiah 1, God tells Jeremiah that He knew him before he was knit in his mother’s womb.
You have no business comparing yourself with others.
To be manifested as a son of God is not a celebrity status, where you draw crowds to yourself. Manifestation of sonship has nothing to do with multitudes.
What manifested sons do is lift up Christ so that men would be drawn to Christ and not to themselves.
Christ desires that when men lift Him up, He is the One who will draw men to Him.
Manifested son are those who carry solutions for their generation from the throne of God. Sons of God are loaded with wisdom. If you are a son of God, what is the wisdom God has given you for your generation?
Wisdom is what carries solutions. If you are a son of God, you require uncommon wisdom from God to provide solutions.
Manifested sons are revealed to confront forces in the heavenlies.
Sons of God understand spiritual transactions. They are able to decode and deprogram those things happening in the spirit. They understand the forces that have bound their generation. They have been prepared to install divine order.
You manifest that which has already been established. You need to know what has been established in the heavens that you are to manifest on earth.
What is the prophetic purpose and plan of God for the gate(s) you are sent to?
Until you manifest what you already are, you are not yet a son.
You need to have intercourse with the Divine and know how to interact and partner with angelic beings.
Sons understand their spiritual rank and boundaries. If you break your spiritual rank, you will be bitten by the serpent.
Angels will never work with you when you are operating outside the will of God in your life. Angels know the blueprint of God in your life. So long as you stick to the blueprint God has ordained to you, they will minister to you.
Angels will never impart wisdom or knowledge to you. That comes from God. They are to facilitate what has been established in heaven concerning you.
You can only walk in the wisdom of God if you have reverence and honour for God.
Manifested sons of God carry wisdom that comes from heaven. That wisdom ensures that whatever you receive brings about impact to your generation.
We are to walk in the manifestation of our assignments. But to do so, we need an understanding of our assignments.
It is one thing to have a title and another thing to have a mandate.
God will never transact with you outside of what He put in you. He interacts with the seed of purpose within you.
Until you know who you are, you will never hear the voice of the divine. All you will hear is the voice of your circumstances.
God will always speak on the strength of who you are on the inside. The word of God is dispatched from eternity and enters time where it looks for the seed/vessel that contains purpose.
He has made everything beautiful in its time. He also has planted eternity in men’s hearts and minds [a divinely implanted sense of a purpose working through the ages which nothing under the sun but God alone can satisfy], yet so that men cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end.Ecclesiates 3:11 (AMPC)
For the word to be manifested in time, it must find the right vessel that will receive it and appropriate it. The word begins to expand the capacity of the vessel in which it dwells to bring about its manifestation.
God enables you to engage with the generation that you have been sent to. You need to understand what has held your generation captive.
Sons of God are not afraid to confront the devil. They confront demonic forces and strongholds because they understand their weapons of spiritual warfare are spiritual not carnal.
Demonic forces use strongholds as a launching pad into the lives of people.
Religious sanctimony has no power and authority in the spiritual realm. It is hypocrisy that will never deliver you from anything.
The school of obedience is as essential as an undergraduate degree. God is calling you to the most elementary level in the school of the Holy Ghost – the school of obedience.
In the school of obedience, there is curriculum known as unjust suffering. There is a character of Christ you will never carry unless you experience injustice. This is a character that must be produced within you so you can manifest your sonship.
And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers.Romans 8:28-29 (ESV)
All things is inclusive of unjust suffering because to whom much is given much is required.
God has provided grace that is not necessarily for deliverance. It could be to take you through the suffering not deliver you out of it.
Jesus learned obedience out of the things He suffered.
God recognizes each one of us as a son. But He is always looking for the mark of sonship. Maturity as a son means you can be entrusted with your inheritance and responsibility as an heir of the kingdom.
Maturity is progressive. God is excited when we mature from one level to another. He wants you to grow to a place He can trust you to function as an heir of the Kingdom. But before He can trust you, you need to walk in obedience.
If you do not know how to deal with injustice, you are yet to attain to maturity. Your reaction to injustice shows your level of maturity.
We are not just talking of attaining inheritance through faith. There must be a manifestation that is witnessed here on earth.
If you cannot manifest on earth, what is it you think you will do in heaven? There are things we are to accomplish now while we are still on earth.
The angels of God are supposed to serve sons. Yet, the angels understand your mandate as a son better than you do.
Until you understand your mandate as a son and align yourself to what God has called you to, the angels assigned to you will stand aside.
The Bible serves as a guide to us. Quoting the Bible without revelation and understanding will not be helpful to you as a son.
We must abandon ourselves to the Cross and allow it to deal with every pride and rebellion that is in us.
Even the inanimate creation is to bear witness to your manifestation as a son. Because you already know who you are and you have the anointing, whatever you do prospers.
As a manifested son, you have power and authority to transform even the most difficult situations with the backing of heaven.
Those who are manifested as sons are they that have yielded themselves to the Holy Spirit. This includes the discipline of the Father through people and circumstances. You must be careful how you relate to people and find out why they are in your life.
Another unit in the school of the Spirit is the Father’s chastisement. As a son, you cannot run away from discipline. It will follow you wherever you go.
Not every difficult circumstance is demonic. There are things God allows to refine us.
There is no exclusion zone in the manifestation as a son. You must be part of a group working towards a common divine purpose.
Manifested sons are not an elite group of super saints endowed with holiness that is not available to other believers.
God is not calling you to a life of puritanism. He has put out an invitation available to everyone that is born again.
Attaining sonship will involve a significant cost to the flesh. The desire of the flesh must die and carnality must cease.
There are things God doesn’t want you do in your friendships and relationships and you must be willing to surrender to His will.
For it was fitting that he, for whom and by whom all things exist, in bringing many sons to glory, should make the founder of their salvation perfect through suffering. For he who sanctifies and those who are sanctified all have one source. That is why he is not ashamed to call them brothers.Hebrews 2:10-11 (ESV)
God is bringing us to a place where we shall bear an uncanny resemblance to Christ. In as much as we are in the world, we are not of the world.
We are to become blameless and harmless as we shine our light in the world. Manifestation of sonship is obvious even to sinners.
When you walk in that which is original to you, you will attract support.
There is a difference between technical skill and divine skill. To prosper you need a measure of both.
Worship will give you access to divine inspiration concerning what God has ordained in you.
Worship is what promoted David to the palace, not the slaying of Goliath. If you are not a worshipper, then you are not a warrior.
When you worship God, the angelic beings sing with you. Wherever you go, the angels go with you.
It is worship that brought down the walls of Jericho. When the Levites precede the multitudes, every wall comes crumbling down because angels are found in the midst of worship.
Jesus didn’t try to become something He wasn’t. People were either drawn to Him or repelled by Him. In similar fashion, as sons there are those we will attract and those we will repel. You will attract the people of your kind and repel those who are not.
Jesus had unbroken communion with the Father. Do you have the same with God and yourself?
Wherever sons are, they will always expose people’s hearts and intentions. Those will ulterior motives will always fight sons.
Sonship is not about being understood and accepted by all. You should keep the company of people who push you to be better and challenge you out of spiritual slumber.
God will always give you what you need even when it’s not what you want.
Sons of God have a presence that exposes the hearts of men which may cause persecution to arise.
As a manifested son, people will be attracted to you because of the glory resident in you. People with the spirit of the antichrist will oppose you.
To know those who are driven by the spirit of the antichrist, check the fruit of a person’s life. Talent and gifts don’t equate to Godly character. God is looking for fruit, not talents and gifts.
Sons of God are prophetically acclaimed but yet obscured. They have a humble background and are not easily noticeable.
John the Baptist is a great example of a manifested son of God. When Jesus was manifested, he knew his assignment was over.
As sons we must know when our assignment is done and begin the process of transition. Otherwise, you risk becoming irrelevant.
