Sanctification

sanctification

Under the old system, the blood of goats and bulls and the ashes of a young cow could cleanse people’s bodies from ceremonial impurity (religious system of rules). The blood of animals was a temporary purification for the flesh.

But then the blood of Christ, pure blood of Jesus through the Spirit of God purges the  conscience from dead works to serve the living God.  And just because you have a conscience, doesn’t mean it’s pure. According to Titus 1:15, even a person’s conscience can be defiled.

The word “sanctification” is related to the word “saint”; both words have to do with holiness.  God instructs us to be holy for He is Holy. We also learn in scripture that Holiness without which no one sees the Lord. We have to be holy, sanctified, pure to go to heaven.

The act of sanctification is a battle. It required the flesh submitting to the will and Word of God and dying to itself. We must die daily. This flesh is stubborn!

Sanctification begins in the mind. The mind is the battleground, the central station where every action first takes place , whether it’s good or bad. Therefore, if you cleanse your mind, your thoughts, then your actions will become clean and pure.

These days we have here on earth are our days of purification. This is the time to get right!
