Reverend Kayode Oyegoke, The water & the blood 

 1John 2:12 

“I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his name’s sake”. 
Romans 1:5  

“By whom we have received grace and apostleship, for obedience to the faith among all nations, for his name”.

Their sins are forgiven because of his name sake; The greatest gift to a man on earth is to see how God can be obeyed; Without obedience to the faith I won’t be recommended to his name. ‘Obedience to the faith of his name’.

1Peter 1:2  

Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied. 

When people get saved God, says now you can obey me, escaping hell isn’t enough. It’s important to a man to learn what he was designed to learn, that’s why the new birth was designed. God will teach us how to obey, it goes together with sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ. Obedience will enhance the ministry of sprinkling; Some people will preach obedience to nations, so nations can learn how to obey.   

So everyone has been called to come and obey God; All that will take for sins to be broken/removed, is obedience. Obedience could open the door to sprinkling of the blood. We need the life of Jesus in London! 

1John 5:5 -6 

Jesus came by water ” so when Jesus moved in the earth he started by water and ended by the blood. He finished his water course at river Jordan – ‘This is my beloved son in whom I’m well pleased’ (Mathew 3:17).  It is by water that the prophet of water – John the Baptist witnessed that Jesus is the son of God who came by water. After he came by water he started blood ministry; How? When he was in wilderness being tempted by the devil that was when he started; He learnt obedience by the things which he suffered. 

It means the earthly Iife of Christ is by water and by the blood. So how did he come by the water, God gave him the water; Jesus used the water and the water is the word. 

John 3:5 

“Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God”. 
The word of God begins with water first and you graduate with the blood. Thats what got him to the cross,the life and obedience of the blood.  If you’re born of water and spirit the Godhead bares witness with you; Instead of saying this one is my son he’ll elaborate on and  say “this one is begotten of me”.

Water and blood both of them are blood. The first water is blood, it’s from the blood, its the water that carries the blood only that you first of all learn his water. It can cleanses, removes and remits. When they pierced him in the side what came out was blood and water (John19:34). Jesus is they syllabus of obedience; There all blood course, it’s jut one degree to another.

Hebrew 10:22  

So water starts your journey then switches into the blood; You can’t see water ministry, this is higher than miracles.When he says works, we don’t see manifestations of the external, when Jesus healed the sick it was by anointing not by water and blood.  To become a son is higher than doing miracles; Others can’t see what Jesus obeyed , what man can’t see. When Jesus was carrying out instructions of water; Nobody knew he was doing something.

When a water walker came, heaven opened; the meaning of heaven is water above.  The colour of the Jewish nation is white and blue. White stands for purity while blue talks of heaven; Before the heavens open you must touch the waters beneath.

In Genesis God divided some water above and put a firmament in between and call  it heaven (Genesis 1:6).  So John was baptizing the earthly heaven; John also had water , he also came from the wilderness; He wore a leather girdle and camel skin, like a wool of a camel that tells you John was a camel who journeyed from the wilderness; They came to ask him, “What then? Art thou Elias? And he saith, I am not. Art thou that prophet? And he answered, No” (John1:21). 

You see in the wilderness, the camel will journey to locate the oasis. He had some water that he brought from his journey, the storage of water he had he used to baptize the people he was giving them knowledge; he had light! 

Luke 1:76-80 

So if John had water, that water of John was stronger than the blood of bulls and goats in the temple which Moses ordained;These are waters God brings, he’ll use them to colonise the heart; John was constituting a way that could take sin away, John was greater than Moses;He was giving knowledge of salvation by the remission of their sins. 
Luke 3:3  

John was Jesus’s prophet; He was explaining the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins; He could to a degree bring knowledge of salvation; That’s why he was baptizing by water, the water is knowledge.  “By his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many” (Isaiah 53:11). Jesus also started baptizing he started from where John stopped. John initiated something, “He must increase, but I must decrease” (John 3:30).Jesus also came with a knowledge, that John said “He it is, who coming after me is preferred before me, whose shoe’s latchet I am not worthy to unloose” (John1:27).

A preacher of knowledge is a revealer of secrets; Jesus began to increase beyond John; What John did Jesus did it more higher. 

Luke 1:80
“And the child grew, and waxed strong in Spirit, and was in the deserts till the day of his shewing unto Israel.”

Luke 2:52
“And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, ad in favour with God and man.”

When your stature increase see what you’ll attract; Go to God and increase;  Knowledge and understanding brings favour. When you’re not increasing you won’t break through.  

Luke 1:71-74 
You can see when deliverance came the Jews didn’t see it. Do you know if the Jewish nation had believed, the Romans would have worshipped God; They’d have become a city on a hill. They didn’t know the day of their visitation, so they where blinded even for our sake. We don’t know what we have, we have something.  

Isaiah 62:1-2  

When you grow in salvation God will change your name. The soul needs to be taught salvation; Learning even in my own little knowledge of salvation , heaven began to open. To come to London is not a brag but favour of salvation, brought me here for purpose. It’s Satan that has placed programs hate, Pilate loved Jesus he admired him. God will touch men’s heart to love you.  Pilate didn’t want to kill Jesus but he didn’t know he was a lamb slain for many.  

Anytime I’m obeying water ,I’m using knowledge, what does knowledge do? It remits sins. The knowledge to give the light of salvation; When my sins are forgiven because I obeyed the water, you’ll see sins beginning to go; they’ll be remitted by obedience to the faith . When you pass through water you’re learning faith and remission of sins is taking place. A husband should be strong enough to clean his wife with water; So how can unclean clean the unclean? Immediately you introduce water you take out the world. The best way to enjoy a woman is that you take away the world from her by water;Those who give trouble to the husband don’t submit to this word.  The trouble at home is because of their insubordination to the word; So when you see someone whose a baptizer he’s a giver of Knowledge.  

John was upgraded and heaven put him into the wilderness, to prepare a way.  Jordan needs obedience, immediately you obey what the water is saying; Because even from the beginning Jordan was known as the water of remission of sins; The feet of the priests opened water (Joshua 3:13).

Jordan reacts to knowledge;Naaman entered the water seven times (2 Kings 5:1-19) What does that mean? His skin became like that of a baby –
(John 3:5) “Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God”.

Do you know he’s about to start dipping you into the water until you are perfected. The day God opens your eyes to see your own righteousness you’ll see that what you’re holding is a filthy rag. Paul went through the discipline of learning and teaching the water; Paul carried the ministry of the water whilst suffering; You can’t carry this ministry without suffering.

Anytime you operate by faith , obey faith seven times. Stay by the water until the water perfects.  Until you have pleased God. Obedience to the faith , its not easy for the soul to obey; You submit to faith and it takes and leads you.  Water will begin to break your sins ‘the blood of Jesus cleanses you by obeying’. Sin is helpless when you obey the water, bury yourself in the water. 

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

It’s not easy to deal with the soul! Bury yourself in the word bury yourself in the water keep on burying yourself in the water that seven times is not by physical counting its unto perfection. Don’t give up stay in the water when you get up and you see it’s still there go back in the water.

When faith trains you feelings will dry up; You’ll change feelings and turn them to faith.  You Don’t need to feel good that feeling is symptoms of the outward fallen man, its the outward deception. Keep on going in he water until the new generation in you is born.  The Lord will heal you. 

God is saying I didn’t bring you in the world to saddle you with problems, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Mathew 11:28). If money isn’t there don’t kill yourself; Can you just say I cast all cares to the Lord. I was caring for something some days ago God told me I cast it to him and. It’s not easy to cast a burden some of them come with thorns but stay on Jesus; See Jesus, looking unto Jesus
