INFEMI SOE 2019 (Day 3) – The Ram Of Sanctification: INFEMI Sermon By Bishop Eliakim Osewe
You shall also take one of the rams, and Aaron and his sons shall lay their hands upon the head of the ram. And you shall kill the ram and you shall take its blood and throw it against the altar round about. And you shall cut the ram in pieces and wash its entrails and legs and put them with its pieces and its head, And you shall burn the whole ram upon the altar. It is a burnt offering to the Lord; it is a sweet and satisfying fragrance, an offering made by fire to the Lord.Exodus 29:15-18 (AMPC)
Sanctification happens at Bethel.
The altar is in the heart.
God will allow you to be tested at Bethel, after leaving Gilgal.
After these events, God tested and proved Abraham and said to him, “Abraham!” And he said, “Here I am.”Genesis 22:1 (AMPC)
God is not a name. It’s a description of character. God never ascribed to Himself a name. It’s people who gave God a name based on their revelation of Him.
Many fail in the school of obedience especially when it comes to finances.
Reason/logic is one of the things that makes many to fail at obedience.
Obedience requires fellowship with the Holy Spirit. You can’t obey God without having fellowship with Him. The Spirit of God makes us like Christ.
The holiness of God will wash the inner heart. When we worship God in the beauty of holiness, He begins to wash the insides of us, the unseen parts of us.
Faith is the currency of heaven. It’s what you use to purchase the things of the Spirit.
There are dimensions in God where you can’t go with everybody. There are people you need to let go if you are to progress in God.
A vision will have to be tested. The dimension of Bethel is a dimension where the vision has to be tested because the vision is trans-dimensional.
Sons are the one who have to run with the vision.
Every vision goes through 4 processes.
The vision is not about the people first but the vision carrier. The vision carrier will have to be tried and tested. If he is not, the vision will fail. The character of the vision carrier will have to be tested and formed.
It’s a time where people begin to gather. All manner of people come at this age.
God begins to shake the vision and release people who are not necessary. If people are not released, they begin to become problematic.
It’s the place where the anointing begins to flow from the head down. The vision gets to a place where it can handle the anointing
Sanctification is the highest authority of holiness. The Holy Spirit does the work of sanctification.
Say to all the assembly of the Israelites, You shall be holy, for I the Lord your God am holy.Leviticus 19:2 (AMPC)
When God speaks, He ushers you into the school of obedience.
And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.”Matthew 28:18 (AMPC)
The only asset that you are going to go to heaven with is people.
The next dimension after an open heavens is manifestation. What you download from heaven must be made manifested.
If you are to walk as a son of God, you must walk in holiness.
Sanctification means you belong to God, operating in the realms of God.
I appeal to you therefore, brethren, and beg of you in view of [all] the mercies of God, to make a decisive dedication of your bodies [presenting all your members and faculties] as a living sacrifice, holy (devoted, consecrated) and well pleasing to God, which is your reasonable (rational, intelligent) service and spiritual worship.Romans 12:1 (AMPC)
The perfect will of God is inscribed in the books of destiny. When your spirit man was created, the books of destiny were written in it.
Before you perceive and walk in the perfect will of God, you must dedicate your body to God as spiritual worship.
For everyone shall be salted with fire.Mark 9:49 (AMPC)
You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste (its strength, its quality), how can its saltness be restored? It is not good for anything any longer but to be thrown out and trodden underfoot by men.Matthew 5:13 (AMPC)
Salt denotes personal holiness.
When the gates of your spirit and soul are blocked, the rivers within you can’t flow.
The altar that the fathers have built have an impact on the sons because of the bloodline patterns. This patterns can maintain captivity through generations.
Indications of a sexual altar:
- Lust for sex
- Hate for the opposite sex
- Broken engagements
- Sexual dreams
But the person who is united to the Lord becomes one spirit with Him. Shun immorality and all sexual looseness [flee from impurity in thought, word, or deed]. Any other sin which a man commits is one outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body. Do you not know that your body is the temple (the very sanctuary) of the Holy Spirit Who lives within you, Whom you have received [as a Gift] from God? You are not your own.1 Corinthians 6:17-19 (AMPC)
Once an altar has been raised, it releases generational energy – either positive or negative.
Man was wired to give love, because God is love. Women were wired to receive.
Prayer, fear of God, revelation, reverence are some gates of the Spirit.
Emotions, imagination, will, mind, choice, conscious are examples of the gates of the soul.
Sexual altars are generational.
This is the generation [description] of those who seek Him [who inquire of and for Him and of necessity require Him], who seek Your face, [O God of] Jacob. Selah [pause, and think of that]!Psalms 24:6 (AMPC)
When you understand the power of intimacy, the rivers will flow. Sex is a door that can block the rivers to flow.
Sex is the fuel in every marriage. It’s a pain killer and lowers the risk of prostrate cancer. It’s also a stress reliever.
Soul ties are a door for the enemy to enter into your spirit. If they are not broken, the enemy will camp there permanently.
The people who sat (dwelt enveloped) in darkness have seen a great Light, and for those who sat in the land and shadow of death Light has dawned.Matthew 4:16 (AMPC)
Darkness represents regions of your soul.
Sin defiles the gates of your spirit and soul. The rhema word of God cannot come to pass in your life if your gates are defiled.
Fear is a door to your soul. What you fear most, you create.
