The Cross, Self-Denial and the Manifestation of the Sons of God gives a balanced conservative study of the soon coming manifestation of the sons of God. Romans 8:19-21 is one of many Bible passages that teach us about the manifestation of the sons of God. This doctrine, commonly called “manifested sons” is often misunderstood and sometimes exploited by cults. This book connects the doctrine of the manifestation of the sons of God with the doctrine of sanctification. Those who embrace the cross and humbly deny self are those who grow to full stature in Christ. Discover what it really means to take up the cross daily. This is not dry legalism but a dynamic walk with God. The manifestation of the sons of God is not an elitist doctrine but is a glorious end-time event that must be properly understood. The following are some points of interest.


    A brief history of the teaching of the sonship message over the last few decades. Some recent developments. I caution against some of the extremes and aberrations. The need for humility and submission to God’s process of sanctification to prepare and qualify the remnant.
    True, biblical self-denial is defined and explained. “Self” is defined. “Cross” is defined. “Overcomer” is defined. Explanation is given as to how walking in self-denial qualifies one to be an overcomer. Conservative treatment of the manifested sons doctrine flows seamlessly from the teaching on denial of self.
    Many biblical and unbiblical concepts and practices are often confused with self-denial. These are defined and put in proper perspective. An explanation of how some of these concepts and practices, though different from self-denial, also contribute to the believer’s growth.
    A study of biblical types and shadows that pre-figure and shed light on the concepts of self- denial, sanctification and the manifestation of the sons of God.
    A very practical explanation of how to enter into the experience of self-denial on a daily basis. How to pray the prayer of consecration; how to take up one’s cross daily; how to hear and obey God’s voice; how daily entrance into consecration delivers us from all bondage is explained.
    How to walk as an overcomer. Analysis of the tension between non-resistance vs. resistance to evil including an in-depth discussion of Matt 5:39 which commands us to turn the other cheek and a discussion of Luke 22:36 which implies that Christians are permitted to resist evil in some circumstances. How to overcome evil with good. Practical outworking of sanctification and the necessity of being led by the Holy Spirit.
    Exposition of Revelation chapter 12 and what it says regarding the sonship message. The role of the manifested sons in the end of this age and during the millennial reign of Christ. A balanced treatment of Bible prophecies relevant to the sonship message. An exciting future awaits those who deny self and fully embrace the Christ life. Those who overcome are entrusted by God with much power to do the greater works that will glorify God as this age comes to its glorious end-time fulfillment.
