Sonship & The Supernatural (1 of 3)
The whole of creation is eagerly awaiting! The earnest expectation of the creation is the manifestation, or the unveiling, of what God has been doing over thousands of years of history. The highlight of what He is doing will be the revealing and unveiling of what He's doing in us - the revelation, not just of the Son of God, but of a family of sons and daughters. Men and women are 'sons', just as men and women are 'the bride'. It is a language used to describe a certain kind of relationship.
Sonship & Heart Transformation (2 of 3)
What the world is waiting for, is the manifestation of the sons of God, who are in intimacy with their Father, who accurately represent their Father - having a servant heart, an honoring heart, and a powerful anointing. Jesus said: "I've finished My work". He finished the things that the Father gave Me to do. Part of being a 'son' means that we need to accurately represent the Father. "When He appears, we shall be like Him". You and I are on a journey of transformation, that should be ongoing.
The heart is the...
1. Center of your identity.
2. Focus of God's attention.
3. Focus of Jesus' ministry.
4. Center of the boundaries and borders of your life.
5. Center of faith.
Sonship & Spiritual Warfare (3 of 3)
“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and the power of His might” (Eph. 6:10). He wants to strengthen us!
“Put on the whole armour of God, that you may be able to withstand the wiles (or the cunning plans) to overcome you” (Eph. 6:11).
You're here by divine design, and purpose. God has an assignment for you. You also have an adversary, who plans: how can I defeat that person, and stop him from operating in a supernatural life, and hinder him in fulfilling his assignment? Every promotion of God brings another level of engagement that you must face; but beyond that engagement is a prize to be won. Before David slew Goliath, he said: what's in it for me? They said: you get to marry the king's daughter, and your whole family will be free of taxes. He said: that sounds good to me - I'll take him on! After he took on the giant, he was promoted. You don't become an overcomer without a challenge to face!
Sons Break Strongholds
If we are a son or a daughter of the living God, then we are called to be a builder. Relationships must be built, and sustained. A church has to be built.
Our relationships are like a garden. They can have weeds in them, and they become overgrown. The garden of our heart, and our relationships, need to be nurtured - you need to protect them. Adam was given a mandate, as a son of God - put in a territory, put in a place (in a garden), and his mandate was to cultivate it - to nurture it, and develop that garden. He was also told to protect it. There's a warfare, around being fruitful - around your marriage, family, finances, and your relationship with God. You must become then, a ‘breakthrough’ person.
