The inauguration speech of Jesus at the wedding at Cana points us to a future reality where the greatest wedding feast of all time will take place.
In this new year’s message Phil explores the revelation that God’s will is heaven on earth. Jesus brought heaven to earth and we are called to do the same. 2017 is an opportunity to make it our goal to pull the glory of heaven to earth in every arena of our lives and our connections. The new season is an opportunity for a new vision and that vision is heaven invading earth!
Jesus took on flesh and set aside being all powerful, knowing and present and yet somehow still manages to hold all things together.
When Jesus was born the angels proclaimed "Peace on Earth!" But we all sometimes wonder where that peace is in our war torn world. The answer is that God establishes His peace in our hearts one person at a time. As we receive the peace that the Prince of Peace imparts to our hearts we become those whom Jesus calls "Sons of peace!" This Christmas let's be a part of the increase of God's government and peace on earth by releasing His peace in all of our relationships.
In this message Phil explores a vision Amos saw of a plumb line being lowered into the house of Israel. He suggests that the revelation of God as a loving Father revealed by Jesus becomes that plumb line through which we can evaluate all things in church life. The revelation of the Father heart of God is the most glorious unveiling of what God is really like and it is designed to set the standard for our own lives in how we respond to His heart and display His heart.
In this message Rosie talks about how as those born into the kingdom of heaven we have a mandate to not simply run the race of life, but to run it in such a way as to win the prize! God has prepared a victors crown for us that will never fade... The really good news is we don't have to do this in our own strength!
We must honour and understand our past, and those who have paid a high price to build the pillars of the church which are our foundation. Then we can successfully serve the purposes of God in this generation. The way we respond to the Giants that stand before us will be a deciding factor in stepping into all that our generation is promised.
In this fascinating podcast Phil explores God's visitation to Abraham and Sarah in Genesis 18. Abraham received a visit from the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit in the form of "three men." They heralded the birth of Isaac and announced the genesis of God's family on earth. Abraham showed hospitality to his visitors by preparing a feast for them. What he didn't know was that God was preparing a feast for him; a feast of family.
The body of Christ is on display for all the world to see. We play an active role in the world. We are called to be blessing not a curse. We are called to honour kings, we do this by showing them God's Kingdom.
The Fathers plan is to lead us into a greater experience of His goodness and mercy. He has a plan to lead us into increasing glory and will never ever leave us no matter what
