"We can make as many faith confessions as we want to, that is good, and manifest provision will come. However,
Security and Blessings given by God
only come after losing your life, by dying to self.
And, that's not 'your one time only sinner's prayer for salvation' and then expect God's grace to just have to accept your fleshly carnal minded selfishness. No, it's forfeiting our right to run our own lives.
To see our lives as God sees them becomes the motivation for our absolute obedience before Him and that obedience brings absolute victory, joy and blessing into every area of our lives." (Dr. Houston)
Sanctification is cleansing to make holy ...... The Baptism with the Holy Spirit is a gift of power upon the sanctified life.
Although ordained by the Assemblies of God denomination's international fellowship, Revd. Houston is a firm believer in Episcopal Christian polity and has always promoted the New Testament 'five fold' ministry model. He also holds to Trinitarian Wesleyan theology of the 'finished work of Christ' and the outworking necessity of our personal Holiness which should precede the genuine experience of 'the gifts of the Holy Spirit'.
True holiness is a Revival of Holiness. Personal holiness is more desirable than happiness and it is not in heaven alone that God wants our saintliness - it is here and now; holiness is not just a doctrine to be taught, it is a way of life - it is the life of Jesus.
