The Prophetic Induction Of Man Created In His Element Of Purpose – Season 2 (Part 3): Sermon By Bishop Gobanga
God said, Let Us [Father, Son, and Holy Spirit] make mankind in Our image, after Our likeness, and let them have complete authority over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, the [tame] beasts, and over all of the earth, and over everything that creeps upon the earth. So God created man in His own image, in the image and likeness of God He created him; male and female He created them. And God blessed them and said to them, Be fruitful, multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it [using all its vast resources in the service of God and man]; and have dominion over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, and over every living creature that moves upon the earth.Genesis 1:26-28 (AMPC)
Everything that exists is rooted in God; found and established in the purpose of God.
Life can only be understood in the Spirit.
The epitome of the works of God is the transfer of His nature and character to His sons.
He does this by the dispensation of the word of truth that causes us to grow into the image and likeness of Christ. This is the diet of the spirit man. Man shall not live by bread alone but by the very word of God.
Perfect character comes with time and suffering as modulated and superintended by the Spirit of God.
James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes scattered abroad [among the Gentiles in the dispersion]: Greetings (rejoice)! Consider it wholly joyful, my brethren, whenever you are enveloped in or encounter trials of any sort or fall into various temptations.James 1:1-2 (AMPC)
It is the Spirit that teaches us to say no to ungodliness. He also works in us both to will and to do the will of God.
God is calling His people to be like Him [holy], whereby the past and the future converge in the present.
For it is written, You shall be holy, for I am holy.1 Peter 1:16 (AMPC)
Consecrate yourselves therefore, and be holy; for I am the Lord your God.Leviticus 20:7 (AMPC)
For I am the Lord your God: ye shall therefore sanctify yourselves, and ye shall be holy; for I am holy: neither shall ye defile yourselves with any manner of creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.Leviticus 11:44 (KJV)
You cannot obtain your future unless you handle prophetic instruction to deal with the past and the present wrongs.
The Holy Spirit was brooding/pulsating/vibrating over the waters of the Earth. God was there when there was evil. His work was to bring things to be in consonant with His perfect will. Let there be light i.e. the revelation of the heart and mind of God.
When the Spirit of God begins to move, we need to respond to the pulsations of the Spirit.
If we live by the [Holy] Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit. [If by the Holy Spirit we have our life in God, let us go forward walking in line, our conduct controlled by the Spirit.]Galatians 5:25 (AMPC)
God speaks to us to align to His heart and mind His will for us for purposes of promulgation of His will. This is what happened to Mary and Joseph individually. God used an angel to speak to them.
Image denotes the very essence of God’s attributes. We attain to this when we are under the covering of the Holy Spirit.
Where there is the shadow of heaven, God will always manifest himself and his heart and mind e.g. in Solomon’s Temple, the pattern was sealed by glory.
God is calling us to do things according to the patterns he has spoken of. #SELAH
Man will never exercise dominion as a member of his ethnic community but as part of the Body of Christ.
God wants us to resonate with Him. This will happen when we allow God to fill us conditioning us to the culture of heaven.
Man was made out of the very essence of the divine. He is the carrier of the prototype of God’s creation. This is the seed of invention in man that makes man make things. Man has the maker gift.
Man was given the wisdom to administer creation.
God used man’s genetic code to manifest Himself on earth.
God formed man from the dust of the ground to have a body to thrive on earth. This body is the portal where the convergence of the spiritual and the physical happens.
God cannot execute His will on earth unless He uses man.
The heavens are the Lord’s heavens, but the earth has He given to the children of men.Psalm 115:16 (AMPC)
For in Him the whole fullness of Deity (the Godhead) continues to dwell in bodily form [giving complete expression of the divine nature]. And you are in Him, made full and having come to fullness of life [in Christ you too are filled with the Godhead—Father, Son and Holy Spirit—and reach full spiritual stature]. And He is the Head of all rule and authority [of every angelic principality and power].Colossians 2:9-10 (AMPC)
For in him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily. And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power.Colossians 2:9-10 (KJV)
God is pleased to dwell in you and me despite of our fallen state. It is mankind that by his constitution is able to handle the fullness of the divine.
When we are all full of the fullness of God, we begin to function in our diversity.
That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; that Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; and to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.
Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.Ephesians 3:16-21 (KJV)
But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.Ephesians 4:15-16 (KJV)
When man – male and female – exists as one, being a repository of truth, he is able to exercise dominion on Earth.
The grist of the image and likeness of God is His attributes.
You cannot function in your element of purpose outside of God.
There will be world peace when nations cease to be selfish in their interests. When humanity becomes selfless, conducted at the Cross and embracing theocracy, then will there be a new earth and a new heaven.
God wants to bring back restitution between man and creation.
Nature is able to perceive that which is incorruptible; that which is spiritual.
The divine nature of Christ is what allows man to express the glory of God on earth by providing a spiritual structure.
When there was an overflow of the Spirit of God in the Church, selfishness was not there. Saints sold their property to cater for the needs of the saints.
When you know God, you know yourself and what you need to do and be per time per season.
We are the inward depiction of the divine. We are the speculum that resonates in tandem with the divine.
The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.Psalm 14:1 (KJV)
The [empty-headed] fool has said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable deeds; there is none that does good or right.Psalm 14:1 (AMPC)
