The Ministry of Light (The Journey Beyond Salvation) by Apostle Joshua Selman

Many Believers have rejected knowledge to their detriment and are yet to access their victory in Christ. The ratio of Believers who are frustrated and discouraged seem to outweigh the number of Believers walking in the experience of victory. The ratio of churchgoers outweighs the number of Believers walking in the experience of the victory that the divine life of God proposes._When Believers do not experience this victory, they will compromise and stray from the genuine pursuit of faith. Everything that dominates and subdues darkness is called Light. Light is associated with liberty, but many struggle with the administration of that freedom effectively.

The end-point of God calling you from darkness to light is that you become eventually, an experiential manifestation of the glory of God. (Romans 8:18)
_
There is a measure of glory deposited by God in every Believer to the end that your life captures and reflects the glory of God. (John 15:8). There is a measure of glory deposited in every Believer’s life and God is glorified when you allow His glory to flow through you. Revelation is like a vehicle; it has an assignment of stopping you from stagnation. It is impossible to be enlightened and remain in a spot. (Isaiah 60:1)Every time true revelation comes, it brings transition; transmitting you to become more like Christ and revealing the excellency that comes with the faith life. God’s system of administering liberty to The saints is that they first experience salvation. The New Birth experience is not the totality of the believer’s experience, it is the starting point of a journey that eventually culminates in victory and liberty. The New Birth experience is not the totality of a believer’s experience, but the starting point of the journey that should lead to victory and liberty.Being saved by confessing the Lordship of Jesus Christ does not automatically bring you into the experience of victory. Being saved gives you access, not experience.

The Dynamics of Liberty Designed by God for The Believer’s Victory:

1. Salvation (Being born again/The New Birth Experience) John 3:16-17, Romans 10:9-10, 1 John 5:11-12,- God’s system of bringing believers to liberty is by salvation.- The new birth experience is not the totality of the believer’s experience but the starting point of a journey that leads to victory and liberty.- Being saved by confessing the Lordship of Jesus does not automatically bring you into the experience of victory.- Being saved gives you access, not experience.

Being saved or being born again gives you access, not experience.Jesus said: “I am The Way”, that way brings you to truth. You can find the way and yet not interact with the truth. There is something you can do with the truth you receive that will give you life. (John 14:6). God’s intent for the Believer is not just salvation from sin and satan, but in addition, an opportunity to live in victory while serving His purposes. (1 Timothy 2:1-4). When you want people to become a manifestation of God’s glory, you have to give them more than healing and deliverance from evil spirits, because without salvation, those demon spirits still have the legitimacy to enter into that body. Every time you see someone sick, or depressed, give salvation first before healing, to guarantee lasting victory.

The Dynamics of Liberty Designed by God for The Believer’s Victory:

2. Knowing the Truth (Through The Word, The Ministry of the Holy Spirit, and the ministry of The Teaching priest) John 8:32, Psalm 119:130, John 16:13, Jeremiah 3:15 In addition to receiving life from the Saviour, you need to know the truths that He brings. The word “know” is beyond awareness. Knowing the truth describes the whole process of accessing light to becoming transformed by it. (John 8:32).

Knowing the truth requires three steps:1. Access to the truth (Through The Word, the Ministry of The Holy Spirit, and the Ministry of The Teaching Priest). Jeremiah 3:15

2. Hearing and Receiving the truth.

3. Submission to transformation with reference to that truth found.

The privilege of priesthood is God giving you access to the destinies of men. The work of Priesthood is not a vocation; what makes a sound teaching priest goes beyond a good heart.To teach means to bring people into a comprehension of the knowledge of the truth, and there is grace available for that. Priesthood is a product of The Spirit of Revelation and an endowment from God. It goes beyond a man’s limitation, enabling God’s people to discern the speakings of The Holy Spirit, despite the frailty of the vessel. Many people have access to light, but many people are not intentional to receiving true light.God ministers to men through men. Every time God shows up, He gives gifts to men. Answers to prayers depend on many factors, one of which is your degree of transformation. Without transformation, blessings become burdens and even curses.

Much more than desiring to be a blessing, you must submit yourself to the requisite knowledge capable of transforming you before the blessing comes. Answers to prayers depend on many factors before arriving to the saints, and one of them is your degree of transformation.Transformation is the end-point of receiving truth. Without transformation, you cannot become what the light intends for you to become.

How Transformation Leads to Victory: 1) Our realities in this Kingdom are shaped by our belief systems, mindset, and the quality of our thinking. You can discern a lack of transformation in a person when there’s a conflict between their experience and the outcomes they achieve. (2) The information that is stored in our mindset is in layers, and they exact different levels of power over our lives and outcomes. The process of transformation is how people become changed from within. (2 Corinthians 10:4-5).

You can discern a lack of transformation in a person when there’s a conflict between the knowledge from their experience and the results they achieve, that should defend that knowledge. “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ”. 2 Corinthians 10:4-5 (KJV)_The process of transformation is how people become changed from within.

Transformation is not a journey of intelligence, but a journey of warfare because there are certain information programmed by satan to ensure that the lives of Believers perpetually remain in defeat and stagnation. (2 Corinthians 10:4-5).
