INFEMI SOE 2019 (Day 2) – The Price Of Sonship: INFEMI Sermon By Bishop Eliakim Osewe
As for the likeness of their faces, they each had the face of a man [in front], and each had the face of a lion on the right side and the face of an ox on the left side; the four also had the face of an eagle [at the back of their heads].Ezekiel 1:10 (AMPC)
There is a divine order that God has ordained. If we don’t obey it, we are doing nothing.
The Holy Spirit carries the blueprint that God has for His sons.
The anointing/glory of God has weight. It has a price to be paid. You can’t move in the glory of God without paying the price.
The apostles saw something beyond the visible, they paid the price with their lives. Their deaths were very cruel.
Now [when I was] in [my] thirtieth year, in the fourth month, in the fifth day of the month, as I was in the midst of captivity beside the river Chebar [in Babylonia], the heavens were opened and I saw visions of God.Ezekiel 1:1 (AMPC)
Ezekiel was seated in front of greatness but was in captivity. You can be in a place of greatness but unless the heavens over open for you, you will always be struggling.
The one thing the Church has neglected is obedience. Obedience will usher you into dimensions of God.
Eternity is a dimension.
The visions Ezekiel saw were dimensions of God, the gospels. He saw the divinity of God.
Each face represents the dimensions of God.
The last wave of revival will be the dimension of the divinity of God.
This sermon is on the dimension that the Lord is taking the Church how will we get there.
The physical dimension can’t travel faster than the Spirit. When you move faster than light, you enter the dimension of eternity. We are the light of God.
The Church keeps praying for revival but it’s not happening because there is a missing link.
The wheels of the creature denote technology.
There is a dimension in seeing the Kingdom (of God) and there is a dimension of entering the Kingdom.
The wheels of technology cannot supersede the dimension of prophecy.
The Church needs to rise to the dimension which was set for us before the foundations of time.
There is a progressive entry into the Kingdom of God i.e the Tabernacle. The Church has settled at the gate instead of progressing into the Holy of Holies.
We have settled for less than we deserve as a Church.
God desires for us to mature as a Church. The cry of God is for His Bride to mature for Him to fellowship with Her in the inner chambers.
The price of justification and sanctification has to be measured.
This is what you shall do to consecrate (set them apart) that they may serve Me as priests. Take one young bull and two rams, all without blemish.
They shall eat those things with which atonement was made, to ordain and consecrate them; but a stranger (layman) shall not eat of them because they are holy (set apart to the worship of God).
Seven days you shall make atonement for the altar and sanctify it [set it apart for God]; and the altar shall be most holy; whoever or whatever touches the altar must be holy (set apart for God’s service). Now, this is what you shall offer on the altar: two lambs a year old shall be offered day by day continually.Exodus 29:1,33,37,38 (AMPC)
Aaron being the father is paraded with the Lord.
The first bull is the bull of justification.
You enter the Kingdom and then the Kingdom enters you.
There are dimensions in the physical realm.
When it comes to the altar of the Lord there are dimensions:
- Ankle deep- salvation and justification
- Knee deep – sanctification
- Waist deep – ministration
- Fourth dimension – consecration
Unless you are born of the spirit and water, you can’t enter the Kingdom. You can see the Kingdom but never enter.
That bull of justification had to be killed just like we have to die to self to be justified.
When the Lord was about to take Elijah up to heaven by a whirlwind, Elijah and Elisha were going from Gilgal.2 Kings 2:1 (AMPC)
You’ve got to say no to the physical eyes and see with the eyes of the Spirit.
Gilgal is the place of justification and sacrifice.
God deliberately stopped manna from flowing.
When something touches on money it touches on you.
The first dimension where God is going to test you is death.
The Lord does not use managers, He uses servants.
Humility is a mantle and an attitude of the heart.
Gilgal is where manna ceases. It is the place of circumcision – the place of separation where God cuts off pride and such.
In the place of Gilgal, God will provide for you. I have not just seen the Kingdom, I have entered the Kingdom. When the needs of God are met, mine will be met as well. When it’s God’s vision, nothing is impossible.
The wilderness will come to an end.
A time comes when there has to be separation.
God desires to provide for us at this time.
