SONS ARE AGENTS OF GOD’S INFINITE LIFE. The infinite life of God grows from God Himself. Jesus was life to the full and had the Spirit without limit because He and His Father were one. Separation from God, the fall and life in Adam disconnects us from the spirit and life of God. Separated from God we are in the law of sin and death. Here, no matter how noble the values we espouse, they have no life in them. A life in principles and noble values is no life at all. But in Christ all is made alive.
In Jesus we live in a person. His life is our life. We have a life and not a lie. He is incarnated in our being and has come in our flesh. We are suffused with His spirit and life. We are transfigured with heaven’s life.
In Christ we are in God and therefore in the trinity. Our being is rooted in the person of God which makes us the expression of Him - sons in spirit and in truth. IN Jesus we are with the Holy Family in heaven. In Jesus the Holy Family inhabit our being.
God conspired to move us out of the law, out of Adam, out of religion and its rites and observances into God Himself. We are joined to God existentially in the person of Jesus and one in Spirit with God in the Spirit of Sonship. This is how we live, move and have our being in God.
Through Jesus and His cross, Father abolished the knowledge of good and evil and the law as our mode of being. In its place He established His Son as our mode of being. He substituted the aberration and distortion that flowed from Adam’s choice with Himself. He made Christ our life.
‘For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory’ Col 3.3,4 NIV.
To live in the old covenant and the law when it was never meant to last; to live in something that God has passed by when it is a shadow of the real is at best folly and at worst disobedience. This regime well named the law of sin and death and words on stone, cannot support personal life and the kingdom of God’s infinite life. Even if it begins well it always fades because it contains the seeds of death.
A personal attitude based on the old covenant will not equip us to minister the Kingdom of spirit and life. The Kingdom of God’s Son will never grow from a law based culture. Life in the law and the Kingdom of God are a contradiction in terms. A charismatic life tied to the law is an illusion and a tare. If it does not die of its own accord it will be pulled out. The sons of God are the children planted and rooted in our Father.
Any church that is the expression of the letter is not the church Jesus built.
We can do better than plant churches. We can plant Jesus. By planning Jesus will we will be the church Jesus builds -and we will harvest sons for God. We plant Jesus by planting persons in whom the Son of God dwells, by planting people who are sons because they are personally fathered by God and by planting persons who do not live a form of godliness but who model the life-giving authority of the Kingdom by healing the sick, raising the dead and casting our demons. Father sent His Son - not a religion. We plant Jesus. Jesus grows the church.
The seed is the infinite life that is Jesus. The parable of the good seed applies just as much to that which we call the church as to individuals. There are communities that produce much fruit and communities that all that can be said for them is that they are numerous.
Each tree is recognized by its own fruit. People do not pick figs from thorn bushes, or grapes from briers.Luke 6.44 NIV.
Jesus multiplied Himself - not an ideology. Jesus’ church is the manifestation of Himself in people - not an institution or a network of the entitled and presumptuous. Don’t presume to be an apostle when your ‘father’ is merely an institution and a hierarchy. Don’t parade yourself as son when you are only a boy.
The church of God is known by the sons of God. Don’t speak nonsense as prophecy because you know neither the scriptures of the new covenant of God.
