Death to Self.
The Manifestation of “SELF” is the first Manifestation of unbelief.
To attempt to manifest yourself instead of God is to do like Satan in the beginning; it’s to forsake the purpose for which you were made, which is to manifest Christ in your day.
To live just for yourself, for the betterment of your family, to live just to improve on your standard of living, your development to improve your social and economic status – is to manifest self.
But God (your Father) has made you to manifest Him on earth, that you should seek him (In his word) to see what part of the word are you to manifest today- for he is the word.
- Christ Commission to you
11 Now this is the copy of the letter that the king Artaxerxes gave unto Ezra the priest, the scribe, even a scribe of the words of the commandments of the Lord, and of his statutes to Israel.
12 Artaxerxes, king of kings, unto Ezra the priest, a scribe of the law of the God of heaven, perfect peace, and at such a time.
13 I make a decree, that all they of the people of Israel, and of his priests and Levites, in my realm, which are minded of their own freewill to go up to Jerusalem, go with thee.
Ezra is a type of the Holy Spirit, who came on the scene after the temple was rebuilded (After the Church Ages) and after the prophet Zechariah (William Branham) had restored all things for the temple. Ezra a type of the Holy Ghost was commission by the King (A type of Christ) to lead the priest (Sons of God) into consecration and spiritual separation from SELF.
