Maria Mason - Missional Community: The Kingdom Economy - Part 2 - God is Lavish and Generous Towards Us - 17 September 2023
In our new series, we dive into messages and conversations on how to be a missional community. For us to grow and prosper, both individually and corporately, God wants to resource us with His Kingdom economy. This week, Maria takes us on a journey about the lavish generosity of God. In 1 John 3:1 we read:“See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God - and that is what we are!”God is a generous Father who never does anything sparingly. He’s not a tight-fisted god who gives only when we’ve earned something or have impressed him in some way. Humans, however, are not generous until they choose to model themselves on something! In the kingdom, we model ourselves on Jesus! Missional community is a demonstration of the lavish love of the Father.There are three things we can do to break scarcity:1. Before we can address that, we have to expose the devil daily as He attacks God's nature with accusations in this area.2. Generosity is the path to blessing. To break the fear of scarcity, we must give, not just financially but also emotionally, from our hearts.3. Put all entitlement on notice! Entitlement is a virus. God wants us to delete it from our hearts. Entitlement culture teaches that we deserve to have things given to us and that we should have special privileges.In stark contrast to today’s entitlement culture, Jesus gave up His divine rights and privileges—and His own life—so that we could have eternal life and freedom. Let’s become lavish and generous in all our ways!
Phil Mason - Missional Community: Activated Sons and Daughters - 3 September 2023
In this Father’s Day message, Phil discusses what it means to be activated by the Father’s love in such a way that we are deeply awakened to our sonship identity and our divine destiny. Experiencing the Father’s love switches something on inside us and literally activated us on the inside. An activated heart is an awakened heart: a heart that has been awakened by our Father’s love to a state of passion and engagement. All this flows out of encountering the loving heart of our Heavenly Father.
Maria Mason - Missional Community: The Kingdom Economy and Finance - 20 August 2023
In our new series, we dive into messages and conversations on how to be a missional community. For us to grow and prosper, both individually and corporately, God wants to resource us with His Kingdom economy. Many people have come to believe that it will all happen supernaturally, and God will foot the bill for revival. That is true on one level, but on another level, we are instructed to employ money to grow the Kingdom through entrepreneurial means and through Kingdom wealth. God has an economy, and we get in on it by participating in His strategies for Kingdom wealth! In the scriptures, we see 4 key principles to step into the Kingdom's economy and financial blessings! Stand firm in a good God who provides for what He orders. And who desires to give us the desires of our hearts to see the Kingdom grow. Immerse yourself in Biblical truth and proclaim His goodness.Give, and it shall be given. The 2nd principle is the principle of giving out of our income regardless of what has come in! We covered 5 ways to give: tithe to a local church you belong to, give to leaders who sow into you (Terumah), give random gifts, bless others with blessings of gifts, and lastly, invest in Kingdom projects.The third principle is that God will bless your plans if you bless His. He is passionate about His Kingdom, so do whatever you must to grow the Kingdom.The last principle is to use what you have in your hand and make as much as you can to become a blessing in this life! Start businesses and prosper! Leave a legacy for the next generation! We must repent of bad attitudes and bitter root expectancies, wrong theology and other things that are binding our minds and hearts so that we go forwards in His economy. His ways are not ours, so we must get our minds renewed and, in particular, come away from all poverty mindsets that bind our thinking. God is so good and wants to bless us so the Kingdom can increase! In Malachi, we read: “Bring the full tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. And thereby put me to the test, says the Lord of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour down for you a blessing until there is no more need. I will rebuke the devourer for you so that it will not destroy the fruits of your soil, and your vine in the field shall not fail to bear, says the Lord of hosts. Then all nations will call you blessed, for you will be a land of delight, says the Lord of hosts.”
Phil Mason - Missional Community: The Expansion of the Kingdom - 6 August 2023
This week Phil brings a message on expanding our influence. Scriptures teach that God’s kingdom is constantly expanding. “Of the increase of His government and peace, there shall be no end.” (Isaiah 9:7) Everything begins in seed form but grows and expands. Jesus told parables to teach us this principle. We are all called to be a part of the expansion of the kingdom and to be looking for opportunities to share Jesus with others, using the gifts God has placed in our lives. We live in the tension between Jesus’ command to abide and to go. The deeper we abide, the more effective we will be when we go! The kingdom of God is within us and as the kingdom grows inside us, that expansion is expressed through the kingdom expanding in the earth. We are poised for great expansion so let’s all take our place in God’s ever expanding kingdom.
Ken Fish - Life of the Warrior - 23 July 2023
In this message by Ken Fish (off the back of our School of Discernment), Ken unpacks an amazing revelation that we have crossed over into a new era in Church history. We must now take possession of new lands and spaces in this time. In Joshua 1 we read: “Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” So Joshua ordered the officers of the people: “Go through the camp and tell the people, ‘Get your provisions ready. Three days from now, you will cross the Jordan here to go in and take possession of the land the Lord your God is giving you for your own.’” We are in the season of the first wave of the harvest! It’s time to begin to believe again for the billion-soul harvest that God has promised. It’s time to take the land and enter into this new place. Yes, the battles have been fierce but we must continue to fight and move forward now. Never think that your gifts will cover your sloppiness. You must be diligent. Let us overcome and prepare for what is ahead! Ken went on to share 6 key areas that we must not let go of. This word was followed by a time of breaking off intimidation and impartation—an amazing message filled with fire and courage.
Glenn Rowbotham - Life of the Warrior: The House of Prayer - 2 July 2023
Today’s message is from our friend Glenn Rowbotham from the House of Prayer in Mount Carmel in Israel. In Mark 11:17, we read: “My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations.” Jesus calls us to pray. He calls us to pray for the nations and to give our lives for His purposes. Inspired by David's tabernacle, where 288 singers and 4,000 musicians were employed as their full-time occupation to minister to the Lord and serve the community, Houses of Prayer are rising up all over the earth. Many of these prayer houses are fuelled by young people. The current average age of the people manning these houses in prayer worldwide is now 22! God is on the move! Never before has there been a time when so many have been praying. When we partner with God, in prayer, we cannot lose. It’s a divine strategy to help us build a relationship with Him. We get to enjoy God, and He gets to enjoy us. We are called to drink of Him and contend with Him for breakthroughs. Corporate prayer is everything! Glenn and Coralie carry a passion for seeing warriors rise and take their place as leaders. We must stand up in the Spirit for this to happen. We must quote the Word of God. We must never go it alone, and stand on His promises. There are two purposes for Houses of Prayer: to send out the harvesters, and to call in the harvest! We had a major outpouring of the Spirit at the end of this message.
