IV.  SANCTIFICATION

16  Jesus saith unto her, Go, call thy husband, and come hither.

Can you call your husband? 

What you are intimate with determines what you give birth to. 

Who you are married to determines your name. 

Whose name are you wearing? Does he know you? 

You must separate yourself, commit yourself, consecrate yourself, betrothe yourself to one.   

17  The woman answered and said, I have no husband. Jesus said unto her, Thou hast well said, I have no husband:

Tell the truth. 

Have you divorced yourself from your beloved? 

Have you left your first love?

18  For thou hast had five husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband: in that saidst thou truly.

Samaritans believed the Torah the book of law, the first five books of the Bible.
Genesis –Adam sent out, Abraham, sent out, Isaac sent, Jacob sent all sent out to enter in
Exodus –deliverance, redemption, Moses the prophet
Leviticus-He called the calling of God’s people
Numbers-counted in the wilderness
Deuteronomy-these are the words
They changed the WORD to suit their beliefs.
Five fold ministry-departed from
There shall come a falling away a departure from pure ministry; departing from a ministry of grace into one of works.  She is not intimate with what she has now.  She is not committed to it.

Eph 4:11  And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;
Eph 4:12  For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
Eph 4:13  Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ:
Eph 4:14  That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
Eph 4:15  But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:
Eph 4:16  From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.
Eph 4:17  This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind,
Eph 4:18  Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:
Eph 4:19  Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.
Eph 4:20  But ye have not so learned Christ;
Eph 4:21  If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus:
Eph 4:22  That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;
Eph 4:23  And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;
Eph 4:24  And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.
Eph 4:25  Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbor: for we are members one of another.

Sanctification is all about the WORD!  The WORD is what sets us apart.  The WORD is TRUTH.   Embrace the WORD.  Become intimate with the WORD.  Spend time in the WORD.  Sanctify yourself with the WORD.
