Distance, delay and matters of control

The other day my daughter asked me to pray for her. She had stomach cramps, pains and something that resembled severe stomach spasms.

And I was reminded

As I prayed against all these things, cancelling the plans of the enemy, commanding the sickness and pain to go, and confirming the finished work of Yah’shua over her physical body, I was yet again reminded of how that we have this precious gift of healing inside of us and how that we often neglect to use it.

I was once again reminded how the institutional church teaches the bride of Christ that God is far, that He is on His own time schedule and that He is always in control. So, we must just accept whatever we get. Their favourite saying is “His time is not our time” and “His ways are not our ways”.

God rolls up His sleeve

I heard a very interesting conversation over a local radio station recently as I was driving home. It was all about God rolling up His sleeve and baring His arm ... picture it!

It's an awesome picture!

Where does it come from?

It comes from a new song by one of my favourite artists, Toby Mac. And he really produced a very catchy tune with interesting lyrics ... if you understand the context ...

... and shamefully some people out there don't ...

Some opinions sprout from a life spend in the religious corridors of the institutional church, triggered by a new hit like this.

As I said, the words in the song are biblical ... but you have to know the context before you go on telling people that God is getting ready to zap them!

What a knock-off to a nice song!

Your worth on the building plan

This post has much to do with the person we are and grow up to be and less with who we might blame for our shortcomings and circumstances. And the author is actually Paul in 
1Collosians 3:1-23 and not me ...

So, here goes:

Hey guys, now that you have grown in Christ and realized your worth in Him, I speak to you differently

And I, brothers, was not able to speak to you as to spiritual ones but as to fleshly, as to babes in Messiah.

Who is a child of God?

Who?

What qualifies you to be a child of God?

What is it that you should do to be a child of God?

How difficult is it to become a child of God?

At what point can you say that you are a child of God?

Where is the answer to all this and how would we know for sure?

What is the will of God?

Recently I listened to a short online teaching on How to know the will of God.

Great question!

And there is an even Greater Answer!

An Answer the online guy who did the teaching completely missed. But, it was whispered to me very quickly By the Holy Spirit even as the teacher went on and on trying to explain.

The whisper brought me exceeding great peace and comfort.

Should I explain?

Looking at Jesus through the aleph-beth

The institutional church will have you believe that Psalm 112 is all about you ... but look again!

It's all about Jesus!

See so that you can see

... and when you see that, you will discover His heart for you ...

abc in Hebrew

To make it fun and deeply spiritual (haha), we'll read this Psalm the way it was written - in ancient Hebrew going through all the letters of the Hebrew Aleph-Beth, from the first letter Aleph to the last, Tav.

sugklēronomos

Years ago the Holy Spirit shared with me the intimacy of adoption ... that I am not an orphan, but a son ... that I have a wealthy and rich inheritance ...

In my subsequent journey through the weeks and months and years that followed, I learned more and more about what this really means.

I progressively learned how to apply my authority as sugklēronomos ... something that we certainly were not taught by the institutional church!

So, what is a sugklēronomos?

Never go against your pastor, or you'll be guilty of witchcraft!

Years ago when my family and I made the change to move from the orthodox Afrikaans church to a more evangelical, Pentecostal church, we were often told and kept in check by the pastor telling us that we must never rebel against him (or her - his mother was the other pastor), because that would constitute witchcraft and we wouldn't want to make ourselves guilty of that! 
 
Witchcraft carries the death sentence as an ultimate punishable sin (sic).

You, your kids and even those not even closely related to you

In this post we will be looking at a certain event in the book of Acts and attentively note how that Peter reprimands those who amazed, astonished and perplexed mocked those who spoke in tongues once they were filled with the Spirit of Jesus.

The Story

Acts is the story God's Grace following the ascension of Jesus. It is the story of the first congregations of those-called-out-from-amongst (the ekklēsia), of those who came to know and receive Christ shortly after His ascension. It is the story of missionaries and courageous travels and of answering those who grew up in pagan society culture. It is the story of bringing the Gospel, even amidst what may have been regarded as totalitarian autocracy by such super-power as Rome ...

Yah'shua type: Zerubbabel

When reading about Zerubabbel, what comes to your mind?

How do you interpret what is happening during the re-occupation of Jerusalem and why is it even relevant to us?

Let's take this approach that nothing in the Bible is just there for leisure reading. It is there to tell us something about Jesus ... not about us in the first instance, but about Him.

And then finding Him, we are able to find ourselves ...
