Conventional and Unconventional

Convention: “a rule, method, or practice established by usage; custom; accepted usage, especially as a standard of procedure.” One label that fits Jesus very well is congregation praying“unconventional”. “There is no one like You among the gods, O Lord, Nor are there any works like yours.” (Ps.86:8; also Jer.10:6; 1Sam.2:2; Deut.33:26; Ps.74:12; Job 5:9) Jesus’ disciples had observed Jesus praying and had observed the impacting redemptive results He got when He spoke to nature, disease and demons. When they asked Him to teach them to pray, He told them that they should ask for that which is in heaven to be moved into the earth (Matt.6:10). Needless to say, that which is conventional in heaven (God’s will) is going to be unconventional by earth’s standards, practices, methods, rules and usage. And yet, that is what our Lord instructed us to ask for.


God is With Us

Emmanuel, “God is with us”, is the God-Man who was born of a virgin that God might dwell among men. Not only did Jesus, Emmanuel, live among men but He lived redemptively among men. He didn’t come to bring merely a message or a creed but He lived out redemptive acts through His life on earth. His disciples, those whom He has redeemed by His redemptive act of His shed blood on the cross must, in turn, live redemptively among men. There are too many and too much to redeem to simply live to go to heaven.  “Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.” (Matt.1:23, NKJV)


Redemptive Living

Emmanuel means “God is with us”. He is the God-Man who was born of a virgin that God might dwell among men. Jesus, Emmanuel, lived redemptively among men. He didn’t come to bring merely a message or a creed but He lived out redemptive acts through His life on earth. His disciples, those whom He has redeemed by His redemptive act of His shed blood on the cross must, in turn, live redemptively among men. There are too many and too much to redeem to simply live to go to heaven.  (Matt.1:23, NKJV)  “Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.”  We are praying you discover daily that you are living redemptively to the glory of Emmanuel.  (Marty’s Daily Discovery as heard on TEXAS PRAISE RADIO at the bottom of the hour 24hrs/day.)

God’s Redemptive Rule Extended

Handreaching1The following is an excerpt from a message by MARTY GABLER. (Marty is speaking at Kingdom Equipping Congress 2016 ** March 2-4. The theme is “Sons/Daughters of the Kingdom”.

We are instructed by our Lord to pray, “Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” It goes without saying that (1) we are to expect that Kingdom to come as we pray and (2) we are the ones through whom that Kingdom is demonstrated. Creation is groaning for the manifestation of the sons of God who have given themselves over to the redemptive rule of God and allow that rule to be extended through them.

Redemptive Character Resolves Issues

RainbowOverCity
Opportunities for redemptive acts, for releasing the character of the “THY” of “Thy Kingdom” are everywhere everyday. Redemptive character does not look for opportunity to take advantage but looks for a way to get others out of the path of destruction. Redemptive character gives and plays a part in the resolve of the issue or need. It does whatever it takes to heal. It puts itself on the line, just like Jesus, in order to bring back the captives from destruction and set them free.

Redeeming Property

For Sale
A redemptive act may be buying a piece of property that has been used for pornography or human trafficking or manufacturing illegal drugs, then taking that property and using it to help addicts get delivered or using it as a home for abandoned children. It has been done several times across the nation.

(This is the eighth excerpt from Marty’s article “THY Kingdom Come“ which was
published in SEEC Magazine.)



Redemptive Word Of Affirmation

TalkSon
A redemptive act can be as simple as speaking a word of affirmation to a child who has been abused or neglected or bullied. That word of affirmation may possibly save their life. One day when we were eating at a restaurant I noticed a large family who had gathered to eat at several tables pulled together. There was a young man about 15 years old that the Lord began speaking to me about. I went over and gave the word the Lord had given me for him. Weeping, His dad pulled me aside and told me that I had just saved his son’s life. He was planning to commit suicide but that word spoke specifically to his need. The boy then joined us and thanked me and told me what it meant to him and how it had changed him and given him hope.

A Redemptive Hand Up

HelpingHandUpA redemptive act can also look like when the Lord instructed me to pray and make declarations over a certain massage parlor for two years. When visiting with pastors we had not seen in over 20 years, we discovered that they were rescuing women out of that very parlor over the last two years. Some of the women were as old as 50 and as young as 11. They take them to a safe house, lead them to Jesus, teach them the Word of God, teach them marketplace skills and help them get a job. They are redeeming those women, bringing them back from destruction and helping them get on with their life purpose.

Redemptive Rescue

WomenSewingRedemptive acts can look like a U.S. businessman who went on a missions trip to Indonesia. When walking down the streets of a large inner city he noticed many women who were obviously captive in human trafficking. His heart was deeply moved for their plight and began asking the Lord what he could do to help turn things around for those women. The Lord put it on the man’s heart to open sewing centers around the city to teach those women to sew and while they are sewing, teach them about Jesus. He talks to U.S. companies and asks them to buy a pallet of sewing machines for Indonesia. He has gotten others involved in the vision and found local businesses to buy the clothes and has begun to make significant redemptive inroads into the human trafficking dilemma as redeemed women are becoming a legitimate part of the marketplace and the church in the inner city. There is room for both supernatural and practical in the redemptive Kingdom of God. There are times that, in order to deal with the intangible, we need to redemptively touch the tangible.

THY Has Redemptive Character

HandReachingDown
The “THY” of “Thy Kingdom come” Has Redemptive Character. If we can call Jehovah God Almighty anything, we can call Him Redeemer. For I know that my Redeemer and Vindicator lives, and at last He [the Last One] will stand upon the earth. (Job 19:25, Amp; also Ps.19:14; 78:35; Isa.41:14; 63:16). His character is continually displayed in redemptive acts of many-layered wisdom (Eph.3:10) and they are displayed through His sons (Eph.3:10).

at KINGDOM CONGRESS 2018 March 7-9.)

Redemptive Wisdom

MountainsunshineThe church is not the Kingdom of God but a model and stewarding entity within the Kingdom. The purpose of the church in the Kingdom of God: “[The purpose is] that through the church the complicated, many-sided wisdom of God in all its infinite variety and innumerable aspects might now be made known…” (Eph.3:10, Amp). That wisdom is made known through redemptive acts of power (Lk.10:9;11:20;1Cor.2:4;4:20; 1Thess.1:5). That redemptive wisdom is the foundation and body of our thinking and mindsets when we have gotten it out of the Word of God and into our hearts and minds and decisions and actions. Theology formed from the poverty of human experience leaves minds severely limited and disoriented with no true compass. We must adjust our focus from matters and things that people say are impossible to focusing on Him Whose Kingdom, Whose rule and authority, comes in the moment and brings with it the power and resources of heaven. “Poverty” basically means “insufficiency” and the human experience is far too insufficient to form anything to stand on, let alone anything that will bring hope or any viable form of solution.
