You Are Who He Says You Are!

We explored Galatians 5 & 2 Corinthians 5: 14-18 in The Passion Translation. We discovered that we are completely & wonderfully free because our past with all it’s bondage to the law was crucified with Jesus. Our old self is dead & our new self is alive in Christ.
We watched a short clip from the movie Moana. This showed us a great example of how powerful it is when we speak to the gold in each other & we call out who we truly are in Christ. You are not defined by your past or your behaviour, you are defined by the voice of God over your life. You can view the video at https://youtu.be/A4QuKwfv6Wk

Moana Restores the Heart

I have crossed the horizon to find you
I know your name...
They have stolen the heart from inside you...
But this does not define you
This is not who you are
You know who you are...who you truly are...

Cultivating God Awareness

In this final message in The Practice of Corporate Presence series, Tim and Deb tag team. Tim looks at two of the outcomes of the fall - we became more conscious of ourselves than of Him, and we gained the ability to self-evaluate apart from the voice of God. In Christ that curse is broken, and it’s now our choice to cultivate that place where we are more aware of Him than of ourselves. Deb reminds us that ultimately it’s all about Him - no other agenda than Him, and that cultivating God awareness goes against the momentum of our “me first” culture.

Confessions of a Serial Head Tripper - The Importance of Learning to Receive From God

The religious spirit wants to keep you operating in one direction with God - from you to Him. The Kingdom is heaven to earth - Him to you. Learning to experience God is a core Kingdom discipleship discipline. Jesus’ first miracle, the birth of the Church/Bride, and the metaphors of the Bride in Song of Songs all involve wine. Learning to drink of the wine of heaven, and living out of “first love” is something we cannot forsake.

Worshipping Bigger Than The Room - Part 1

Continuing our theme of taking ground in spirit together, Debbie unpacks the power of our priestly function and authority - a function that marries intercession and worship. We start by exercising this function in our own world, and as we use our priestly “super powers” our authority increases beyond our own world into cities and nations and begins to shape history.

The Practice of Corporate Presence - Part 4 - Present Your Bodies

Tim continues on the theme of sacrifice in worship. In this session he looks at presenting our bodies as living sacrifices, and what that looks like in the practice of corporate presence. True worship that breaks through in the spirit realm involves our whole selves - spirit, soul, AND body. It’s much more than just the words we say or sing.

The Practice of Corporate Presence - Part 3 - Unity and Following The Lead

A great example of a corporate people taking ground together was Israel taking Jericho under the leadership of Joshua. If that was a modern day church service with the standard consumer mentality, that situation probably would have played out a little differently. Tim draws principles from this story on the role of leadership and our response, and the power of agreement to create a "critical mass" that leads to corporate breakthrough.

The Practice of Corporate Presence - Part 2 - Bring Your Fire

We're not meant to come to corporate worship randomly or unprepared. Paul said, "When you come together, each of you has a..." - each of you - not just those "on the roster". Fire falls on sacrifice, and as we all learn to step out of the consumer mentality and bring a sacrifice of praise, His fire falls and we ALL break through to a higher level in the spirit.

The Practice of Corporate Presence - Part 1

In part 1 of this series, Tim explains that "it's different when we're together". We can't approach corporate presence the same way we approach our individual God time. 1 Corinthians 12 - 14 gives us the clearest instructions on how to do corporate presence in a way that raises the "water level" for everyone.

Taking Ground In Spirit, Together

2018 has been prophesied as a year of taking ground. So far we have been focussed on taking ground IN us. Now Tim moves the focus to taking ground in the spirit, together as apostolic kingdom family. Worship is one of our primary weapons in taking ground, and it is our first and most important ministry. The invitation of this season is to upgrade our fire - our hunger levels. The church in Ephesus found out from Jesus in Revelation 2 that taking a whole city, persevering, and holding fast to truth are not enough. We must cultivate first love!

Convictions - Who Am I

In this final session around "the squeeze", Tim leads us through a process of uncovering my convictions about who I am - looking at the early voices that form our view of our identity, and some of the Scriptures that need to be part of that foundation. Tim finishes by leading us into an experience of being unconditionally loved, to anchor us to the deepest reality of our identity.

Convenience vs Conviction

There are some seasons where the decisions you make have a disproportionate impact compared to the rest. This is one of those seasons. The decisions we make in this season right now will determine the size of the territory we occupy in the next season. Tim unpacks the difference between living from convenience versus living from conviction. God wants to back us, but we need to give Him something to back!

The Squeeze of 2018 - Practical Tips For The Journey

This week is less about teaching something new and more about practical tips on how to navigate the ground we are ploughing in this season. The "squeeze" word came in the context of another word for 2018, which was about taking ground. This squeeze season is about God taking ground IN us first, so He can then take ground THROUGH us.

The Squeeze of 2018 and the New Wine

One of the prophetic words for this year was about a “squeeze”. We are in that squeeze season right now. When you are in a season like that it is critical to know what God is doing and what He is trying to build in you, or you will prolong the season unnecessarily or bail out of your true purpose. If you are struggling, stretched, challenged, or offended in any area of your life, this word is for you. He is wanting to bring new wine out of you - but you have to cooperate with His process in your life.”
