Corporate Agreement

Kathy — How do we fight for a corporate cause when we are fighting to survive individually?  First, we must take hope that God has positioned gifts and strengths geographically and relationally for corporate wars ahead of time, and we must believe corporate agreement will defeat customized weapons as well as enemies with tenure that are attempting to protect ungodly strongholds.  Secondly, we have to be confident that being the target does not mean we have to just take a right hook and then wait helplessly for a left jab every time the enemy gets upset.  We are not a victim nor a God-authorized target.  Once that is settled in us we can fight with confidence and win through time and perseverance.  Heb.3:14, Msg — “If we can only keep our grip on the sure thing we started out with, we’re in this with Christ for the long haul.”


Wilderness Seminary

WildernessJesusThe result of Moses taking things into hand within an acceptable timeframe were: (1.) only one Egyptian out of the way; (2.) the status of Israel remained unchanged; and (3.) Moses has just paid full tuition for the next 80 semesters of “The Wilderness Theological Seminary.” After experiencing the wilderness, however, Moses was then ready to receive the mandate that he had been set aside 80 yrs. earlier to carry out. (Heb.3:5)


Dates and Groaning

Dates, predictions and signs come and go in every generation and during and after the book writing and prophesying and after the hubbub, fear and debates subside, creation is still left groaning for the manifestation of the sons of God. For many, these things are not about Jesus, they are about events. We must get back to a Christocentric message and lifestyle (one in which Christ is central, not just a ticket out of here). ”[ The Centerpiece of All We Believe ] So, my dear Christian friends, companions in following this call to the heights, take a good hard look at Jesus. He’s the centerpiece of everything we believe, faithful in everything God gave him to do.” (Heb.3:1, Msg)
