From houses to cities

Image
On the 26th of March 2015 I wrote and article on my blog titled "Slowly building houses" where I wrote on my learning to understand what is is like to raise my two boys and how I discovered a vital key in what it truly means to be a man. (https://life-thefullspectrum.blogspot.com/2015/03/slowly-building-houses.html) One key I discovered in that time and also discuss in my piece is answering that burning question every young man goes through the closer they get to the age of eighteen to twenty one  - "When am I a man?" - and how to answer that question for them. But today I want to write about a new revelation I received on another vital key all parents go through - 
 "How to let my children go".
This is the next faze of my transitional journey as a mother, and I'd like to share with you some aspects of how God drew me into tapping into His grace to let go.
Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it. Unless the Lord guards the city,…

With the child comes the provision

Image
At baby dedication the apostle always encourages the parents by speaking these words: “With every child comes the provision to raise that child”. These words are more powerful and carry far more weight than what we realize, and I’d like to share why.
This week I made the decision to sit down and catch up my back log of admin in the area of organizing and indexing sermons and personal revelations for the past six years. Yes, that’s right, I let it slide for six years! Thank God for His mercy and grace, that despite our sometimes lack of faithful stewardship of His Word He never fails us nor lets us fail. What a God we serve! It was as I was writing the indexes that I noticed how many times the apostles were teaching on ‘What you are anointed to do’ and ‘How God called you’. There is so much in these teachings that I would love to share but this is not what this post is about. I scanned through some of the points in them, well the very highlighted and all in caps scribblings I made during…

The Life-Blood of Jesus

1 Corinthians 6v20
For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's1 Corinthians 7v23
Ye are bought with a price; be not ye the servants of menI'v been spending time just once more meditating through our new creation realities manual, and as I was doing this, I just became so aware of the magnitude of Jesus love toward us and what His life, death and resurrection truly means for us.
As I was pondering this I heard the Holy Spirit repeat over and over - "you are bought at a price"
I then had a vision of the life blood of Jesus pouring out of His side and as it flowed it gave life to all who came into contact with it and it became part of their dna as His blood now pulsed through their bodies. I saw the water wash them clean as snow especially their heads - minds.From here I saw a vision of a filthy market place as I heard the words "you are no longer slaves to sin but servants unto Christ". So I went to Co…

Discipling - we do it every day

Image
There is a lot said about discipling, and in my opinion, it is often over complicated and at the same time treated rather blaze. Watching things unfold in my own life on various levels and in various spheres of influence a Biblical truth or two came to light and I would like to share it with you here.

The most basic and simplest definition of discipling is "teaching or training someone else to do what you do" - in other words, anyone who comes to you asking you to show them or teach them how to do what you do is then in effect your disciple. From here, by just imparting the wisdom and knowledge you have gained through study, experience, application, successes, failures, mistakes and more; you are now discipling someone else. As the relationship grows more spiritual aspects will become part and parcel of this relationship moving it over into a deeper layer of discipleship.


Something the Holy Spirit has been opening up to me of late is that once we are saved through Jesus, th…

"More than over-comers more than conquerors in life"
Meet Samuel,
He is a 18 year old Obstacle Course Racing athlete with a remarkable talent. He was introduced to the sport a year ago when a local OCR club opened in our area and one of the top professional athletes in the sport is both owner and head coach.
Sam quietly continued going to training until he was encouraged to try his first obstacle race not to far from where he lives, and to his own surprise he made a second place podium in his age group. This was just enough to get him completely hooked! Head coach spotted the talent and the commitment to work hard and decided to take him under her wing and train him in a more structured manner in order for him to continue growing and have the chance to perform well in this particular sport. From here he took on new challenges and worked to test his abilities a little more every time. He started entering for tougher races, some in Elite categories (pro athletes) like IMPI where h…

Foolish things that confound the wise – Part 3 - Baptism of Fire

The Baptism of Fire
As I mentioned when I started out this short series on the three baptism that form part of our foundations of faith according to Hebrews 6v1-2; we are now in the part that is not only hotly disputed but mostly neglected, completely ignored or totally misunderstood. So what then is “The Baptism of Fire”?
John the Baptist said that; Matt. 3v11 – “I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but He that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:” – but what exactly is that fire? And what does it represent in our lives? The Bible answers its own questions, one just has to read; therefore we see the answer to this question in Luke 3v16-17 “John answered, saying to all, ‘I indeed baptize you with water; but One mightier than I is coming, whose sandal straps I am not worthy to loose. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and wi…

The foolish things that confound the wise – Part 2

Image
I now follow up on my first article about Water Baptism with Holy Spirit baptism. This is another principle in our foundations of our faith that has been hotly disputed for centuries and still is. The common mistake is comparing the infilling of the Holy Spirit (Acts 10v34-35 and 44 to 48) with the gift of tongues (1 Cor.12v10), when in all truth you can’t have the one without the other. Here to it is a simple case of man’s wisdom trying to comprehend what it cannot control and therefore leading others into error.
The Holy Spirit is such an awesome part of our full Christian walk; He is the one thing we cannot do without. Having Him is in fact like having Jesus with us all day every day in everything we do. Everything the Lord has for us, wants to show us, and wants to give us we receive, see, hear, know and understand with the help of the Holy Spirit. We can’t be humble without Him; we can’t submit without Him we cannot obey without Him: we can’t fear the Lord without Him, everything …
