Heaven to Earth Availability

As the Word of God says, “Everything that can be shaken will be shaken”. For 2,000 years the prayers of the saints have been going up to the throne of God in obedience to the instruction of our Lord when He required His disciples to pray, “Thy Kingdom come.” God Almighty has not been deaf upon His throne. Just like rats scurrying to get out of a collapsing building, the powers and principalities in second heaven are feeling the pressure of Third Heaven coming into the earth (Mt.6:10). They are scurrying about the earth and our nation affecting everything and everyone that will allow it and they are attempting, through willing dupes, to dismantle everything they can. Throughout history, when a retreating army leaves an area, they burn and dismantle everything they can so that their enemy cannot use it to their advantage. We should not, at all, be surprised at the attempts to dismantle the Word of God and the institutions that uphold it and our constitution. Hence, our faith, prayers and unwavering availability must facilitate the coming of heaven into earth.   (“From Heaven to Earth” is the theme of Kingdom Congress 2018.

Battle of the Mind

If a war breaks out within your mind, because you are sick yourself, when someone asks you to pray for them, that is a (behind the scenes) battle over sonship.  Even if we don’t voice it, as children of God we know our Father doesn’t withhold any good thing like healing, right?  So, when I am not healed, my sonship easily comes under fire, until I repent (which means I catch what I’m thinking and change it).  We change our thinking by remembering the Truth.  In this case, the truth is that infirmity cannot de-son nor de-daughter anyone because sonship is a covenant, not a condition.  Sons anticipate, meaning they already have a realization of the power of Father’s faithfulness to His Word and His Covenant, so they pray out of that confidence, even if their tooth is aching while they pray for someone’s fever. We don’t have to forego anticipation and participation in God-exploits, even while we are under attack or winning sonship wars. (Last excerpt from Kathy’s article “Anticipating the Power of the Kingdom”)


Don’t Question Your Family Bond

FatherOpenArms(Kathy G.)  Another key we can take from Jesus’ wilderness example will equip us:  >> Don’t allow your identity to come into question during the process.  You don’t question your family bond, and if anyone else does, don’t answer them.  Stand confident that your Father will not de-son nor de-daughter you, and you must be on guard against allowing a rebellious or orphan spirit to de-Father you.


The Sonship Priority

ManPushUphill(Kathy G.) We cannot lose sight of the “sonship” priority during the process.  Religions and cultures and philosophies can train people to be good and do good stuff without being a son, but if you put that kind of regimen without relationship in a bowl and add a lifetime of effort and consistency and sacrifice, you will still come up short of the glory of God. If our identity gets attached to our works and then accomplishments become the measure of our worth and merit, (instead of righteousness being a gift from God), we fall short of the glory of God.   Bringing sons to glory pivots on the Father-son relationship, not regimen and rules and works.

Full Rights as Sons

FatherArmAroundSon1In the Bible, families are where rights, privileges and inheritances are distributed. The first-born son receives the double portion and inherits his father’s authority. Scripture shows us that Jesus is the “first born among many brethren”. (Rom.8:29) In God the Father’s family, all the sons have the inheritance of eldest sons. Gal.4:5— “so that He might redeem and liberate those who were under the Law, that we [who believe] might be adopted as sons [as God’s children with all rights as fully grown members of a family]. (Amp—Bible Gateway)  In the New English Translation it says, “so that we may be adopted as sons with full rights.”

Sons and Inheritance

A very basic matter to understand at the outset is that “son” in the Bible is not about gender. It is about position in Christ and His Kingdom purposes. A person who has been cleansed by the blood of Jesus is brought into the family of God as a son to receive inheritance and authority and function in the Father’s household. In the time period that the Bible was written, inheritance, authority and territory were distributed  within families. Inheritance and authority were given to “sons”.
