the lord woke me up this morning talking to me about self .false religions it where people teach how to do it your self you no with your works or your ability to achieve a better standard of life If your living a life to be sanctified...you won't be sanctified because its not scriptural to grow into the sanctified life! This type of progressive mindset or progressive thinking will never allo...w you to be entirely sanctified by the Spirit of God! Why? First, its not taught in the Bible! Second, your human works are hindering you from seeing and experiencing what Christ does from the Throne room... but you see it ever day being taught on tv like t. b .n The Bible does however; teach that when people are sanctified" they will truly live. If people live to be gradually separated from the world, by gradually separating from worldly things such as worldly apparel, worldly devices, and worldly associations... they are not letting the Spirit of God perform His complete and instantaneous work of sanctification in their hearts.
Sanctification has nothing to do with your "works" or "your ability to gradually achieve a better standard of holiness". Sanctification is the work of the Spirit of God that "rids" man of self. Sanctification "rids" man of the Old Adam at one stroke This stroke of the Spirit of God's sanctifying power instantaneously comes when the Christian realizes that he is nothing. Where he becomes helpless and realizes his own inability to achieve anything... at the Saviours feet. Death to self is shown to the heart of man... by the Spirit of God! Crucifixion is received when man throws up the white flag of surrender to Christ! This death to the Old Man allows God's Spirit to sanctify your heart from what you are! Sanctification only comes by "death to the Old man Ps 37:4...Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
Having delight in Christ is the right attitude to be entirely sanctified! The Holy Spirit gives the believer a desire to be purged from the Old Adam. Sanctification however; does not relate to things you do! Sanctification is not spiritual maturity, spiritual growth, or the process of putting yourself into a better standing with God! Sanctification is "God's removal " of the Adamic nature! There is no process to Sanctification nor is there a process to receive forgiveness for your sins. All comes from Christ! A Christian doesn't get Sanctified because he's on his "best" behavior. A Christian cannot achieve sanctification by his own works! Man is not good enough to receive sanctification by works or good behavior. A Christian gets sanctified because of who Christ is! Christ is the Sanctifier! Glory! by Jim allen
