SOUL TRANSFORMATION!

Jul 15, 2021

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new….2 Cor 5:17 

 We must understand that man is a spirit, he has a soul and lives in a body!. When you accepted Christ, your spirit was recreated. It was perfected and without a single trace of sin. That’s why the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit came to dwell in it!

He has perfected forever those who ARE BEING sanctified…Hebrews 10:14

Perfection is already in your spirit but sanctification is still taking place in your soul!. Your soul must align with what has been done in your spirit for you to manifest true Christianity. That’s why there are born-again believers whose lifestyle brings shame to the name of Christ. Their souls haven’t yet been transformed!

Transformation of the soul is a result of the working of the Holy Spirit on one’s mind by the word of God!.

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God…Romans 1

The transformation of a man is soul transformation. The alignment of the soul to the word of God is key to manifesting kingdom  life.

Your way of thinking, belief system, and will must come under the word!. That’s soul transformation. That’s when sanctification is taking place in your soul.

We have the mind of Christ…1 Cor 2:16.

We need the mind of Christ within us to dominate our minds so that we can manifest the life of God in our spirits.

We have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us…2Cor 4:7

That’s why one can manifest the gifts of the Spirit but live a carnal lifestyle. Their minds need to be renewed so that transformation can take place in their souls until it reflects in their mannerisms.

Our souls must be brought into subjection to God’s word. Sanctification and pruning take place in our souls. The porter is at work and perfection takes place by the word.

If your spirit doesn’t take dominion over the soul, you will remain a sense-driven Christian (Carnal).

It is not enough for you to be available, you have to be usable!.

You have to be trained and skilled to perform and be usable!. That’s the work of the Holy Spirit. He panel beats us, reworks, prunes, and transforms us until we are fit to be instruments that He can use to bless humanity.

Prayers of consecration and surrender are to ask God to help us that the realities of this new creation in our spirits must affect our souls until they manifest in our behavior!.

Please open up your heart to the pruning hand of God.

“If you love me, you will obey my commandments…John 14:15

The proof of love is obedience. Walking in holiness, purity, truth, and obedience is proof that we love God!.

We may have shortcomings but that’s why we pray and submit to God!.

Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you…James 4:7

Put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness…Eph 4:24

You have to let the life of Christ within your spirit dominate your soul until you see transformation in your mannerism (Physical).

The reason for cleansing, sanctification, and pruning is to bring forth more fruit (John 15)!. All these take place in your soul!

But you must remember that it is all the work of the Holy Spirit.

I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you;…John 16:7

As you yield to the Holy Spirit, translation, transformation, and transfiguration in your soul take place. The more we yield to the working of the Holy Spirit the better we become in our soul daily. As long as we are under the sun we will need a transformation of our souls every day. That’s why we keep asking God to make us like Jesus. That’s why it’s important to obey every conviction and instruction of the Holy Spirit.

Do not silence the Holy Spirit, if there’s an area in your life He is pointing out for you to work on please obey. It is aimed at helping you manifest the life of God through you so that you can be a blessing to multitudes of people!

STAY BLESSED AND HIGHLY FAVORED, PASTOR BEN OCHOLA!
