Glory School Jan 17 2015!

Hi Glory People!

GlorySchool

Apologies. Cannot believe we put the event on Facebook last week but forgot to update the website!

Don’t want you to miss the first Glory School Glory Party of 2015!

Justin Abraham from Company of Burning Hearts is coming down to kick off the new year Glory School.

Justy

Towards the end of last year, we really felt Papa putting on our hearts for 2015 to impart what we’ve been learning and gleaning these past years about how to live out of the Glory and operate from our spirits to perform Kingdom purposes. 

Saturday Jan 17th 2015 at 7:30 is the first one of the year.

Usual venue: Salvation Army Hall, Booth Way, Horsham

Don’t miss it!

Be encouraged. Be empowered. Be delivered.

Podcast: Tomorrow People Session 3

In our third session of Tomorrow People conference, Justin Abraham spoke from his many recent experiences and revelations to lay a foundation of how to receive and reveal the new dynamics that are awaiting us from Heaven.

Semi1

We are capable of so much more than we engage with in the natural day to day life. There is so much that has been locked up for such a time as this, this next age of reformation, where people become aware of their spirits to such an extent that they begin to live from the spirit, soul, and body, as the Hebrews once did and understood.

Semi2

 

Imagine if you could live authentically you, the you that God created and intended, instead of living out of a script, influenced by everything that you have ever seen, heard, smelled, tasted, touched. Imagine living out of the simultaneously overlapping spirit and natural realms, living out of the things as yet unseen, capable of understanding all that God intended. We are in a world with angels, the cloud of witnesses, and the Glorious Trinity of Father, Son and Holy Spirit, yet we stay anchored to the lower dimensions, believing the illusion that this is all there is.

Semi3

We are capable of so much more. Let’s get on with what God wants and live out of our Kainos re-birthed creation reality.

Let your box be broken and your present and future life be transformed, as you listen and embrace this fantastic teaching.

Podcast: Tomorrow People Session 2

breath-of-life

In our second session of the Tomorrow People conference, Ian Clayton speaks about the importance of our breath and the deep significance of being a people who speak things to life deliberately.

God spoke, and it was. Adam called the animals by name, and they were. What have you created today with your breath? Have you chosen life or death? Blessing or cursing? Have you prophesied positively into your or others futures? Life and death are in the tongue. But it is the breath behind the tongue that releases the power of creation. Have you created life all around you? Have you spoken a new world or future into being?

Glory Party Nov 16 2013

Is it really that time again!? Hurrah! We LOVE Glory Party!

GloCoParty

It is a real love offering to Him from us. And we love it! You don’t realise how much time and work goes into making a Glory Party happen, from lugging all the music equipment to the Sally Army hall hours before, setting it up, sound-checking, all the people praying behind the scenes, and setting things up… then breaking it all down at the end of the night and lugging it all home…

But it is SOOO worth it! To spend time corporately join together with the heavenly hosts to worship HIM, worshipping in the throne room and following Him this way and that, to pray for the nations, to pray for the attendees, or to just soak near Him, adoring Him… It’s all good! (Can you tell I’m excited by all these !!!! ;>)

angels

So come on down to this last Glory Party of 2013. We’re having a break in December, then starting back up in January afresh.

Bring your friends, loved ones, enemies… bring your sick, your tired, your weary… bring out your dead for resurrection power!

We’ll see you there!

Blessings and bliss!

Glory Company!

The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly

I want to blog on something I know will be controversial. I want to challenge a Christian paradigm that may believers espouse as truth. I was taught it and used to believe it myself. But I think Papa is showing me a new revelation on this.

Rain

“He makes His sun rise on the wicked and on the good, and makes the rain fall upon the upright and the wrongdoers [alike].” (Matthew 5:45 Amp)

The context here is Jesus teaching us to love our enemies as well as our neighbours. This is in itself a great blog discussion for another time. But I want to focus on something I hear all the time, all too often.

“Oh, that guy is certainly operating in something supernatural… but he is definitely operating through the wrong source…”

What a turn of phrase. I think I may have even said it myself in our last preach away podcast! (Sorry, Papa!)

In some cases, I am sure that it is true. But I want to question if it’s always true.

Just because someone is not a self-professed born again believer, does that mean that if he is able to operate in some form of a biblical gift of supernatural activity that he is definitely operating from ‘the wrong source’…?

judgmental

I think there is arrogance, or a form of pride, behind this kind of thinking. I don’t think we Christians do ourselves any favours thinking this way.

Thinking that someone who is unsaved, if they operate in a gift, that they must be pulling on the dark side… isn’t this accusing God of pouring sunshine only on the good? Rain only on the righteous?

spiritual_gifts_1

If the callings of God are irrevocable, and before the beginning of the world, He knew us and called us according to His purposes… then, surely, a person could be born with an innate natural gifting from God for whatever purpose. Surely the source is God, no matter how a person decides to use that gifting.

Do we really believe more in the devil’s ability to make supernatural things happen than we do in God’s ability?

Surely, a man with a talent to create wealth, be he righteous or unrighteous; that talent came from God… Yes? No?

Or what about a faith healer, operating in the genuine ability to lay hands on people and heal them of their ailments? Is he of the devil? Or does he have a God given ability, but just has yet to meet the One who gave it to him…?

Or the New Agers embracing all sorts of ‘strange’ therapies… are they REALLY all of the devil? Or have they perhaps tapped into some Godly truths that were rejected by the Church at some point or another.

Or the television personality, Dynamo. Is he of the devil? For sure? Or has this man tapped into some universal truths and abilities that are open for all the Godly to discover?

Judgingperson

Hear me: I have not done an in depth theological study on this. I’m just blogging from the heart. I just want to provoke us to think. I am not trying to say my answer is the end all and be all. I just want to encourage you to ponder, meditate, and see if Papa shows you something new.

Maybe we should stop accusing everyone who isn’t saved of being of the devil, and try to see God inside them, inside who they are, and what they do. Maybe we should see them through God’s eyes and love on them, and encourage them, and appreciate the talents they have, without distancing ourselves from them with a judgmental attitude, which might simply be a way of covering up our own fears and insecurities.

Maybe, deep down inside, we’re a little jealous, actually, because we’d LOVE to operate in that thing. But instead of facing our own ugly feeling, maybe we hide behind a moral judgment which helps us make ourselves feel a little better.

Or maybe we are just spouting something that we heard someone else say without every stopping to think about it… 

I want to be the good, not the bad or the ugly. I know He’ll pour rain and sun on me regardless of which I am. But I want to make Him proud by withholding my judgment and giving people the benefit of the doubt.

For example, I feel certain of this: God LOVED Kurt Cobain, regardless of how Kurt spent his musical talent that God put in him. This was a man who knew how to worship, and lead others into worship. 

judgmental (1)

May you all ponder. May you all get a new revelation, as God leads you.

(And may you all not lynch me for bringing it up. ;>)

Fathers 1; Lords 0

Been too long since we’ve blogged. Just blogging from the heart today… Out of the overflow of the heart, the fingers type…

We keep meeting wounded Christians who’ve been hurt and oppressed by their leaderships. The people differ, but the circumstances often sound the same.

monty-pythons-the-sound-of-music

The love of Jesus is preached in words, but Law, subtle or overt, is often in action in these places.

We understand why it is:  

Law seems to maintain order, making it easier to protect the flock and manage the congregation and the system. But in prescribing the rules in this way, a heavy hand is laid down as the rules are imposed. And law and legalism replace love and honour and trust.

Those imposing the law are probably not aware of what they’re doing. They are just doing what’s always been done as far back as anyone can remember. They are innocent of being conscious of operating under a wrong motive because they are doing as they’ve been taught or copying the norm as its seemingly always been.

But what they are repeating comes from a long history of governing out of a system created by man. It is a form of control. If we all obey these rules, we will have something that seems like unity, that brings peace to the procession. But in actuality, what is being demanded is not unity but conformity.

What happens to those who do not tow the line exactly as it is laid down? 

Follow the rules: all is well; we are all one, united in ‘love’; we can all get along together in peace and harmony… 

Deviate from the rules: the society as we know it (and like it) is endangered. Carrying on will result in exile; withdrawal of love and relationship; because ‘you’re making the sheep nervous’… 

When the Israelites met at Mount Sinai, God invited them ALL up the mountain, not just Moses. But out of unhealed mindsets, the people opted to send Moses as a representative, and traded direct face to face relationship with their Father of Glory for a list of rules to follow. They traded Love for Law.

moses

When Jesus came, He came to restore Love as the highest law.

So, what happened?

In the early Acts church, they lived in each others houses, met daily, ate together, prayed together, shared all that they had for the good of the community. It was early. There weren’t established ‘rules’ that had been set out by some council, dictating how things would go. 

Surely, without rules, there was a potential for complete chaos…?

Yet there wasn’t chaos, but harmony. The law of love governed them. And something arose in their midst to prevent this freedom from getting out of hand.

heart-love-trust-Favim.com-410271_large

Honour arose.

Honour is not ‘do as I say, and we’ll get along fine’. That’s a perverted form of unbiblical submission.

Honour is the thing that arises out of love, a compulsion to be good to each other ‘written on our hearts’ by love for one another. Submission to one another, as Christ loves the Church.

Honour creates trust between people. We love each other, so we act honourably towards one another, deferring to one another out of love, and trust arises as a result…

Is it perfect? No. It’s messy where there are many sheep.

But if we can get over the illusion that we are in control of anything, it is worth trying to live this way, the way of love, honour and trust…

Will some people make mistakes, out of their own unhealed hearts and perceptions? Yes. But when it happens, the love for one another means that we can talk about what happened, try to identify why it happened so that we can heal the root cause, and then move on to try again so that love can continue to flow and trust be given a chance to rebuild again.

Much of the leadership structures that currently exist in the church, the reason why people are getting hurt and squashed by leaders, is because we’ve been following a Roman model that was instilled much later in church history to create a system of order, to control the masses to make it easier to maintain order.

Leaders are not meant to control. Leaders are meant to govern, like Jesus, as servant kings, leading by example, by love, honouring, entrusting, and fathering.

Fathering. This is the way of love. This is the way of Jesus. Giving people the benefit of the doubt to choose their own path, even if they might make choices differently than the leader is at first comfortable with…

Why did the Israelites not go up the mountain for a face to face relationship with the Father?

Because fear came upon them. When they saw the awesome lightnings and dark cloud of God, deep down they knew they could hide nothing from Him. They knew how ugly they each were at a heart level and knew God would see. In fear, they hid behind Moses, rather than have to face the truth of themselves and allow God to change them at the heart level. In their insecurity, they chose rules over relationship. They denied a chance to be healed by God Himself as a result. They left themselves in messy darkness instead of embracing Light.

Heart

Fathering people is the only way to bring people to a place of love and security where they are willing to surrender self out of humility, look realistically at themselves, and thus allow the healing process to begin.

So long as leaders continue to lord over congregations, operating from Law instead of love and honour, people are going to continue to hide from relationship, unhealed, and continue to get hurt in the process. Leaders will continue to see the mess caused and default back to Law in order to maintain the illusion of control, trapped in a negative downward spiral of hurt and oppression. 

But when we as a Church make the quantum leap of operating out of love, instilling a culture of honour to keep the actual peace, not fearing the messes when they come because we know that Love Himself will rule out; people will stop hiding, get healed at a heart level, learn to love others as Christ loves the Church, and the world will begin to know that we are Christians by our love.

Even leaders might begin to feel safe and secure and loved enough to look at themselves honestly, to get healed in their own hearts so they can be better leaders.

Be encouraged. Be empowered. Be delivered.
