Is there anything in your life that has maybe been shelved, boxed and forgotten? A gift from God, an ability, a rightful burden. I believe it's time to quiet ourselves and ask the Lord what He is desiring us to retrieve - maybe something that He has given us years ago - and bring it into the here and now.
Today is just a brief commentary on the mysterious stirring that I'm feeling in this hour. I still don't claim to know what it is, but God was good enough to bring us a little understanding, and I'm thankful for that.
OK, so today's episode is... well... quite unique, for me. I recently had a few moments where I was so tickled by a certain event that I had to turn on my recorder and capture it. I'm so glad that I did - so that you know I really am a real person who enjoys my life. So again, this is quite abnormal to say the least but I hope my ridiculousness puts a smile on your face.
To be clear, today's episode is about Kingdom INclusion. Let us examine our hearts and see if there be any wicked way in us. What wicked way, specifically? Our exaltation over any "other expression" of the Body. We must remember the broad net of Yahweh God and how He is calling all unto Himself. (I recorded this Thursday, October 24 before I attended a conference saying much of the exact same thing.)
This short series continues and concludes with finishing out Acts chapter 10 and then moving into chapter 11. It's time we examine why we simply don't see the Acts Church in our present-day.
After reading the account in Acts 10, when Cornelius sends for Peter, I was stirred to confront how differently Christianity looks and operates in our modern day. In this 2-part series, we'll avail ourselves to be challenged, to rise and return to what has been lost.
John chapter 20 ends with "these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in His name." I am convinced that this principle is true in many areas. We have been given more than enough, in every possible way, to believe.
Yeshua Jesus always made it abundantly clear that those who know Him, and are aware of the age, should see and know the times in which they live. It's time to shake off passivity, sluggishness and distraction.
I don't claim to know much about the culmination of the ages that is before us in New Jerusalem. However, I continue to feel an increasing longing to cry out for it to come on earth as it is in Heaven. In this episode I share a little bit of this mysterious desire.
For any who choose to live the surrendered will unto Yahweh God lifestyle, all that we are is absolutely dependent upon our level of dependence upon Him. We must be close. We must enter His rest (Himself) and then labor to maintain that rest as we forge ahead into life.
Yes all are invited to sit at the Master's table, but will we put on the required garments to remain in His presence? All that we are - our entire self identity - must be left at the door. And even if you meet the requirements, what seat will you take? (Matthew 22 & Luke 14)
Often we fail to realize that our limited view on any matter is often skewed and just plain wrong. Yes we can see. Yes we can discern. But sometimes we need to just sit down and ask God for His Kingdom perspective, His vantage point before we move out into what we see.
Only one event, one "Man", one perfect Sacrifice can satisfy what is between Yahweh God and all of mankind. Today I discuss the need to be found in Him, Yeshua Jesus, our Satisfaction and Mediator.
In Malachi, the LORD speaks of the insufficient sacrifice of men. They bring Him lame animals - even blind ones - flawed. I would say anything and everything that is sourced in ourselves could rightly be deemed likewise today. In this episode, I'll take a look at this principle.
Do you have a God-given drive within you to sow the eternal seed of Himself that is within you (should you live the John 3:3 & 5 reality)? We are carriers of hope. We yet remain, after our regeneration, unto the purpose of reproducing His offspring. Today, we examine this principle.
One of the stirrings of the Lord in my life right now is the "overflowing" nature of our lives when we're walking in the fullness of all that He is. Malachi 1 tells us that the people will say, "the LORD be magnified beyond the border (territory) of Israel!" This episode examines why I believe that we should live likewise!
We see several places in the Scriptures that one can be "as a tree planted by the waters", but how we often fail to step back and ask the deeper questions about how it got there. Where did the seed come from? What is the condition of the ground? Today, we mix the spiritual with the literal and I pose some thought-provoking questions.
The conclusion of the series that examines the immense shift within my heart towards the facet of the corporate vow that is within immersion/baptism into the death of Yeshua Jesus.
The 3-part series continues examining my pre-immersion understanding of the covenental vow within baptism, strictly in regards to the corporate expression.
Obviously baptism has been front and center in this season of my life. Now, here on the other side, more and more things are already becoming even more clear. In this series I'll divulge much of what, in my pre-immersion understanding of how the covenental vow within baptism is just being deemed too small, in light of what I have tasted and seen.
