Sons of the Kingdom

The Father dearly loves the Son and discloses to (shows) Him everything that He Himself does. And He will disclose to Him (let Him see) greater things yet than these, so that you may marvel and be full of wonder and astonishment. Just as the Father raises up the dead and gives them life [makes them live on], even so the Son also gives life to whomever He wills and is pleased to give it. Even the Father judges no one, for He has given all judgment (the last judgment and the whole business of judging) entirely into the hands of the Son, so that all men may give honor (reverence, homage) to the Son just as they give honor to the Father. [In fact,] whoever does not honor the Son does not honor the Father, who has sent Him. I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, the person whose ears are open to My words [who listens to My message] and believes and trusts in and clings to and relies on Him Who sent Me has (possesses now) eternal life. And he does not come into judgment [does not incur sentence of judgment, will not come under condemnation], but he has already passed over out of death into life. Believe Me when I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, the time is coming and is here now when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God and those who hear it shall live. For even as the Father has life in Himself and is self-existent, so He has given to the Son to have life in Himself and be self-existent.

John 5:20-26 AMPC

 

Ten things that we need to remember about WHO we are in HIM.

 1). The Father dearly loves (your name).

2). The Father involves (your name) in everything He does.

3). The Father allows (your name) to see great and wondrous things that are astonishing.

4) The Father raises up and gives live to (your name) because He is pleased to do so.

5). The Father has given all judgment entirely into the hands of (your name) so that men may give honor to (your name) as they give honor to the Father.

6). The reality is, whoever does not honor (your name) does not honor the Father, who has sent him.

7). Be assured that (your name) who hears My voice and believes, trust, clings and relies on the Father who sent Me, has eternal life NOW.

8). I most solemnly tell you, that (your name) will not come into judgment, is not condemned, and has already passed over out of death into life.

9). Be assured that the spiritually dead are NOW hearing the voice of the Son of Yahweh in and through (your name) and those who hear are coming into life.

10). I most solemnly tell you, that the Father has life in Himself and is self-existent, and He has given to the (SON – your name) to have life in Himself and be self-existent.

APOSTOLIC HUBS, CENTERS AND OTHER VENUES

For the past few months I have been seeing something that I perceive to be what the Father is doing in this locale and region. Some of what I am seeing is based on my personal observation, and that is predicated upon a Kingdom perspective of what I presently hear the Father saying. I realize that it will not be anything new to those of us who have are open, alert and attentive; but it may be something that others of us have not considered in light of following understanding. Therefore, I humbly submit the following insights and musing for your prayerful consideration. Blessings!

Then answered Jesus and said to them, Truly, truly, I say to you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he sees the Father do: for what things soever he does, these also does the Son likewise. John 5:19 AKJV

For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. John 12:49 AKJV

The terms Apostolic hub and center have become a part of our vocabulary and language over the past 25 years; but it appears that we are still receiving a truncated message as it pertains to understanding and embracing the Father’s heart concerning what He is saying and doing. I realize that the prophetic often speaks to things that they are seeing and hearing long before the reality comes into view. However, we seem to have a difficult time processing the information that we are receiving concerning what it means to be an apostolic hub or center.

On June 14 2015, I will be entering into my 45th year of service to the King. To be honest with you, I am extremely excited about being a part of the ongoing work in this hour and for the first time in my life, I can see all of us crossing the finish line together.

What if I told you that every locale where His people reside is an apostolic hub and center of spiritual activity. Whenever I hear someone say that their city and region represents an apostolic hub, it makes me nervous because I know what is coming next. Most of the time they will follow up that statement with the declaration that their ministry and house is an apostolic center. BLESS OUR HEARTS…LORD HELP US!

That being said, what I am seeing and hearing is, there are RESTAURANTS and OTHER community based gathering places that represent apostolic centers in our perspective hubs, and they are where Yahweh’s people are gathering for fellowship.
They are not gathering for fellowship in places that have been designated “houses of worship.“ Houses of worship should be about family reunion and corporate expression of worship; but they are more like listening to a presentation offer for a time-share or condo vacation package. 🙂

The people of our regions are fellowshipping around covenant meals in the marketplace and these places represent hubs and centers of the community. There are several RESTAURANTS in each of our locales and regions that would make a great place for fellowship, breaking bread and Kingdom relationship building. They are places where believers and the people of our worlds come together for fellowship. They are places where people share life in common. They are places where people are connecting at a deeper level, while sharing thoughts and ideas with people who may have never benefited from knowing them personally.

The marketplace is where you are going to find people who are looking for you. Stop looking for love and acceptance in all the wrong places. Start thinking and living outside the box. Go praying, be open, alert and attentive. Someone is looking for you and their life may very well depend upon making a connection with you. Keep reaching for the unreached in order to gauge their progress. Make it a point to stay in touch with those whom Yahweh has given you, as well as those to whom you are sent. The people whom you should be fellowshipping are looking for you and they are within your reach. Stop struggling over one-sided, short-sighted relationships and start meeting new people in your locale and region today.

Apostolic Alignment

Note: We are all called to the same purpose; but we may have dissimilar assignments. Those assignments while individual and personal can never come to fruition without access to Kingdom resources, the power of agreement with others, and proper alignment with the true apostolic ministry.

Ephesians 1:7-10 In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace 8which He made to abound toward us in all wisdom and prudence, 9having made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which He purposed in Himself, 10that in the dispensation of the fullness of the times He might gather together in one all things in Messiah, both which are in heaven and which are on earth—in Him.11In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will, 12that we who first trusted in Messiah should be to the praise of His glory.

Synergy; in general, may be defined as two or more things functioning together to produce a result not independently obtainable.

Amos 3:3 Can two walk together, unless they are agreed?

Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their labor. 10For if they fall, one will lift up his companion. But woe to him who is alone when he falls, for he has no one to help him up. 11Again, if two lie down together, they will keep warm; But how can one be warm alone? 12Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him. And a threefold cord is not quickly broken.

Synchronicity; is the experience of two or more events that are apparently causally unrelated or unlikely to occur together by chance, that are observed to occur together in a meaningful manner.

The idea of synchronicity is that the conceptual relationship of minds, defined as the relationship between ideas, is intricately structured in its own logical way and gives rise to relationships that are not causal in nature. These relationships can manifest themselves as simultaneous occurrences that are meaningfully related.

Ref. A single axle trailer is rated for a specific maximum load capacity. If you add an axle to the trailer, you will double the load limit, and if the axles are properly aligned with one another, they will roll together in a way that will carry much greater load.

Note: Part of our divine destiny and inheritance is the way He is carefully weaving our lives together by ordained, covenantal relationships. The way we relate and work together is, or not…to the praise of His Glory! We must begin to recognize what He has already done through the generational blessing of relationship. By real and living relationship the extended family has now been established. By family He is impacting regions, nations, and the world.

Hebrews 12:14-15 Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see Yahweh: 15looking carefully lest anyone fall short of the grace of Yahweh; lest any root of bitterness springing up cause trouble, and by this many become defiled;

Hebrews 12:22-29 But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living Elohim, the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels, 23to the general assembly and church of the firstborn who are registered in heaven, to Yahweh the Judge of all, to the spirits of just men made perfect, 24to Yahshua the Mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling that speaks better things than that of Abel. 25 See that you do not refuse Him who speaks. For if they did not escape who refused Him who spoke on earth, much more shall we not escape if we turn away from Him who speaks from heaven,26whose voice then shook the earth; but now He has promised, saying, “Yet once more I shake not only the earth, but also heaven.” 27Now this, “Yet once more,” indicates the removal of those things that are being shaken, as of things that are made, that the things which cannot be shaken may remain.28Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve Yahweh acceptably with reverence and godly fear.29For our Elohim is a consuming fire.
