GATEWAYS TO LIVING A SANCTIFIED LIFE2Chr 30:3

INTRODUCTION:
·      Tradition says we cannot get answers to our prayers except we are sanctified; but the Bible says we cannot be sanctified except we pray (1Jn 1:9-10, Matt 26:41)
·      Again, tradition says we cannot be empowered by the Holy Spirit except we are pure; but the Bible says we cannot be thoroughly purged except we are empowered by the Holy Spirit  - (Mal 3:1-3/Matt 3:11-12/Rm 8:13)
·      Tradition also says we cannot gain access to revelations without sanctification; but the Bible says we cannot be sanctified except by the washing of water by the Word of God. (Eph 5:26, Ps 119:9-11,Jn 15:3, Jn 17:17)
