(Justification, Sanctification and Deliverance)
What does it mean to be justified? Well, It means to be declared not guilty. As far as God is concerned you are not guilty of any offence.
The Bible says, “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ” (Romans 5:1). You have been justified Jesus took the punishment for your sins when He died on the cross, though He was not guilty of any sin (I Peter 2:22). "Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:" God is no longer holding your sins against you. The Bible says “To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation” (2 Corinthians 5:19).
Let’s imagine for one moment that
you fell into a ditch, you got very dirty and someone came along and rescued you – that is, “got you out of the ditch”. The next thing you’d have do is to get yourself all cleaned up. In other words, “get the ditch out of you”, and that takes time and effort. I Corinthians 6: 11says “… but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by
the Spirit of our God”.
Sanctification is in two phases: first,
God gets you out of ditch, that means you are born again and immediately, the Bible declares you sanctified; set apart from the world; unto God. Then you must get the ditch out of you by subjecting your mind to a cleansing (renewal) process through the Word of God
(Romans 12:2)."And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God."
The renewal of your mind is a continuous process. Your mind was trained to think in one way: to see things physically before believing. Now, by renewing your mind, you allow your mind to see things God’s way. You re-train your mind to see things from God’s perspective. Then you’ll speak God’s
words, God’s ways and get the results that He gets from His word.
"Giving thanks unto the Father,
which hat made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in lights: who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the Kingdom of His dear Son” (Colossians 1: 12-13).
From the moment you gave your life
to the Lord Jesus Christ, you became a member of God’s Kingdom. In other words no demon hatched out of hell’ can harm you. You are free from any covenant you ever entered into, knowingly or unknowingly. You are free
from very habit, sin, sickness, or disease that ever held you bound. Why? Because you have been delivered from the powers of darkness.Hallelujah!
The Bible says that God has delivered you out of the control and dominion of darkness and has translated you into His kingdom. You never have to be afraid again. God is your Shepherd and His eyes of protection will always be upon you (Psalm 23:1)." The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want."
The Bible says: “If the Son therefore
shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed” (John 8:36). God has delivered you into His Kingdom, which is where you are now. It is where you belong. You have already been (note: this is past tense) delivered from the power of darkness. It has no control over you anymore.
